Leaders of the large and unprecedented pro-democracy protests that roiled parts of Hong Kong in 2014 have been told to report to police on charges of causing a public nuisance, in an apparent crackdown that comes one day after Hong Kong selected a new chief executive.

CSE Gardeners

I recently got an email from Michael Frank – better known as Señor Frank to the students of Carolina Springs Elementary School in Lexington, South Carolina.  Señor Frank, the Spanish teacher and the school garden coordinator, sent me some tips about the benefits of double digging raised beds so plants can grow deeper and have access to sub surface moisture reducing the amount of water vegetables need.  Great tip Señor Frank!  As it turns out the Carolina Springs Garden Club, which started as an offshoot from a third grade Spanish unit on the life cycle of plants, has a

Emmanuel Chabrier is another of those musicians who were at the center of the musical and cultural lives of their countries and their times, but whose own creative contributions have largely faded from view.

Jazz vocalist Charenée Wade began singing at 12 and learned from jazz luminaries such as Carmen Lundy and Christian McBride.

On this episode of Song Travels, Wade joins host Michael Feinstein to share about her first experience performing on stage and her growth as an artist. Wade performs jazz classics, including "I Didn’t Know What Time It Was" and "Blue Monk."

The Mississippi native drew inspiration from Sonny Boy Williamson, Fats Waller, Louis Armstrong, and Thelonious Monk to create jazz flavored by the blues, along with tastes of his own sardonic wit. On this 1988 Piano Jazz, Allison opens with one of his typically witty tunes, “Someone’s Going to Have to Move.” He and McPartland join forces on an old classic, “Your Red Wagon.”

"A" is for All Saints Parish. King George III vetoed the 1767 act establishing All Saints Parish. Re-established in 1778, it  comprised the Waccamaw neck of Horry and Georgetown counties. With the tidal cultivation of rice culture in the mid-eighteenth century, the Waccamaw River—which had so long been a barrier to the development of the Neck—became its greatest asset. Plantations sprang up along its banks, and by 1810 slaves made up nearly 90 percent of the population.
