Stressing that it would not replace the watchdogs he was tasked with reviewing, such as the Special Investigations Unit, Tulloch said a college of policing could ultimately reduce the work of the province’s oversight agencies “through the selection, promotion, and support of officers who embody the ideals of professionalism.”
Among the central aims of such a college, Tulloch said, would be establishing province-wide standards for hiring and promotion. Requirements needed to enter and continue in policing “remain largely static, ill-defined, and inconsistent,” Tulloch wrote.
All police officers undergo training at the Ontario Police College, located in Aylmer, Ont. which provides basic recruit training as well as refresher and specialist courses. But some
As she sits for an interview at the Finesse Records HQ, a rooftop apartment in Mexico City, Mariana de Miguel (call her Nan) is getting historic about the inspiration for her persona as RB singer Girl Ultra. She’s pulling her role as the diva in Finesse’s RB movement into focus.
“The actresses of Mexico’s golden age of film — onstage, my posture – they affect it a lot,” she says. “I watched those movies with my dad and the divas really drew my attention. Especially Silvia Pinal; look her up, you’ll see.”
Pinal is worth the research. She made her movie debut at 18, building a career for herself playing softspoken but dominant bombshells. She was famous for quick, sensual shifts in her face that entranced audiences. In her films, she stopped admirers on the street in their tracks, and caused her amorous victims to make rash decisions
Much has been made of the Trump administration concealing the visitors log so the public can’t see who’s leaving a trail of slime in and out of the White House. It really makes me wonder what kind of sludge they would be ashamed to be associated with if they’re sharing photos of the likes of Sarah Palin, Ted Nugent, and Kid Rock standing around Trump at the Resolute Desk. Wanna throw up yet? I’m with ya’.
These are some of those consequences of elections they talk about. Conservatives had a hard time with White House visits by Al Sharpton, Jay Z, and Beyonce. But this assortment of loons is a basket of deplorables.
Ted Nugent, whose most famous song is about “vagina grabbing,” has made veiled threats to kill Obama, who he’s also called a “subhuman mongrel.” Anyone who’s made threats
The only reason I’m not a lifelong Prince fan is because I was born before he had a record deal. I was 7 when he released his first record, and I can recall the exact moment a little more than a year later when I discovered the wondrousness Prince had to offer even in his formative years. I was 9. I broke into my brother’s bedroom to go through his record collection and found the record that would change my life. I’ve recounted this experience before in greater detail than I offer here — exactly one year ago, to be precise. Suffice it to say that Prince has been an influence on me ever since. And this was back when his records were new, not reprinted as hip vintage swag, so we’re talking about a substantial relationship here.
Just shy of its 30th anniversary, dance music’s legendary label Strictly Rhythm celebrates a huge milestone with its 900th release, and longtime friend and collaborator Kenny Dope is the man who accepts the honor with a pressing of a sickeningly synthy tune graced with some truly naughty lyrics by house vocal hero Roland Clark.
After 28 years of sonic service (23 counting that five-year hiatus from 2003 to 2007), Strictly Rhythm has released banging beats from Armand Van Helden, DJ Sneak, Erick Morillo, Josh Wink, Louie Vega, Thomas Bangalter, Ultra Naté and more; “I Like to Move It” from Reel 2 Reel is still a need-to-know classic. For this momentous occasion, “Dirty Talk” is a fun nod to classic house styles, capturing the essence of the Strictly Rhythm sound. It’s a little NSFW too, because who wants to go to a puritan party?
“Dirty Talk” hits shelves Friday, April 28, but you can
