Captain America: Back On Ice…The Answer Will Shock You!


Coming this February!

Once, he was a man out of time…and now he’s about to re-live that moment all over again. Following the shocking ending of CAPTAIN AMERICA #697, Steve Rogers is back on ice in CAPTAIN AMERICA #698, and it’s a brave new (and cold) world. Now, it’s up to the super soldier to assemble a new group of Howling Commandos to help him battle for this freedom.

“Everybody thought it couldn’t happen again—but it has!” teases SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “Once more, Cap is a man out of time—but the new era he finds himself in is fraught with perils, personal hardships, and challenges unlike anything the shield-slinger has ever experienced before. The lead-up to our big blow-out #700 issue starts here!”

It’s a story readers won’t want to miss, and it all begins this February with CAPTAIN AMERICA #698—on ice!

GORILLAZ LAUNCH INNOVATIVE NEW APP TO IDENTIFY NEW ENGINEERING TALENT

Jaguar Land Rover join forces with Gorillaz to address the global shortfall in engineering talent, by launching a new innovative mixed reality app to inspire future generations and identify bright sparks to fill 1,000 new roles

19th June 2017, Alternate Reality: Jaguar Land Rover joins forces with Gorillaz to address the global shortfall in engineering talent, by launching a new innovative mixed reality app to inspire future generations and identify bright sparks to fill 1,000 new roles.

Jaguar Land Rover and Gorillaz are working together to recruit the next generation of world-class electronics and software engineering talent, with a code-breaking challenge found in the virtual band’s app. The best performers will be fast-tracked through the recruitment process, helping to meet the company’s ambition to employ thousands of bright new talents over the next year. It’s a major change in the way the business looks for candidates, aiming to tackle the engineering skills gap and inspire and attract a diverse range of talent and new thinking.

The new Jaguar Land Rover recruitment area will launch in The Gorillaz App on 19th of June in the form of a 360-environment situated in the garage of the band’s home which also features all the iconic vehicles from Gorillaz’ past. Here, applicants can explore and take a two-part challenge. The first part, designed to educate users about the benefits of electric vehicles, involves assembling the Jaguar I-PACE Concept, Jaguar’s first all-electric five-seater sports car. The second and more demanding part of the game, developed to engage and recruit budding electronic wizards and coders, will focus on cracking code – there are more than  4,000 combinations, as well as cipher in an alternate reality format. The challenges put a stronger focus on skills and talents than on qualifications. 

The project follows on from Jaguar Land Rover’s STEM initiative with Gorillaz in 2016, where founder member and female guitarist, Noodle, became Jaguar’s Formula E Racing and global STEM Ambassador. 

Jaguar Land Rover is hoping the mixed reality app will tackle the engineering skills shortfall by attracting a diverse range of talent. As well as identify talent, the company hopes to both inspire the next generation of engineers and also attract more women to the profession. Only 9% of the UK engineering workforce is female – this has remained the same since 2005 (IET 2015). In fact, the UK has the lowest percentage of female engineering professionals in Europe, while Latvia, Bulgaria and Cyprus lead with nearly 30% of the engineering workforce female.

If Stones Could Speak: The Palaces, Gardens and Monasteries of SouthWest Germany

Almost four million visitors each year visit 60 of Baden-Württemberg’s monuments and enjoy their very special atmosphere and the range of varied activities on offer there. Free open days, special guided tours, culinary demonstrations, garden walks make these special places come alive with stories from the past.
Anyone wanting to make the most out of Baden-Württemberg will soon realize they’ve come to the right address at Staatliche Schlösser & Gärten (SSG), the state heritage preservation agency for the state of Baden-Württemberg, or SouthWest Germany. The agency is responsible for 60 historic monuments that it maintains, develops and opens to the public. They include famous places such as Heidelberg Palace but also hidden gems such as the Palace and Palace Gardens in Schwetzingen, only 20 minutes from Heidelberg; the well-known Ludwigsburg Residential Place outside of Stuttgart as well as the lesser-known but no less stunning baroque gardens of Weikersheim Palace; the World Cultural Heritage site of Maulbronn Monastery as well as the luxurious Salem Monastery and Palace on Lake Constance and the Hohentwiel Fortress Ruins. Each estate has its own special stories that make each visit memorable as the past come alive with the lives of noble families, kings, queens and their followers.
Heidelberg Palace, the most famous palace ruin anywhere in the world, is the “flagship” of the Baden-Württemberg monument landscape and has more people visiting it than any other monument in the federal state. Its ruins are some of the most romantic in all of Europe ranging from the Elizabeth Gate constructed overnight by Ludwig V for his wife, Elizabeth Stuart to the façade of the castle which is brilliantly lit up four times each year in an enormous display of Bengal fireworks. The palace has cafes and a newly opened restaurant with one Michelin star.
Only 20 minutes from Heidelberg is the lesser-known summer palace of Schwetzingen with its extensive formal gardens, allees, and park. One of the most beautifully planned gardens in Europe, it also has a stunning restaurant open to the public which is well worth the visit especially during asparagus season. Hidden by enormous hedges, an outdoor stage is carved from a grotto where the nobles would gather and stand for hours while the king and queen sat and watched the plays.
The UNESCO monument of Maulbronn Monastery has a much different story as it was, and still is, a Protestant school. Today, it hosts concerts, culinary demonstrations, wine tastings and architectural tours. The Cistercian monastery in its rural tranquillity has been included on the UNESCO World Heritage List on account of its well-preserved architecture and history. Other outstanding examples of church architecture, include the resplendent monasteries of Upper Swabia, such as Wiblingen, Schussenried and Ochsenhausen and the impressive medieval complexes, including the monasteries of Bebenhausen and Alpirsbach, and the grandiose castles and ruins of fortresses, such as Hohentwiel or Hochburg.
At a time when celebrations of the Reformation 500 years ago are going on throughout Germany, there is an opportunity to savour this anniversary year in a quite particular way in these castles and monasteries where famous events occurred. Heidelberg Palace is an example as it used to be the residence of the prince electors of the Palatinate, who espoused the Reformation at an early stage. It was here that the Heidelberg Catechism was compiled at the behest of the prince elector – and it has retained its validity through to the present. In the 16th century, the palace was the glittering stage of the powerful protestant prince electors.
In Maulbronn Monastery, the Duke of Württemberg established a school in the former Cistercian monastery after the Reformation. In doing so, he marked the beginning of a pioneering tradition, which has continued through to the present. In those regions that did not go along with the Reformation, the Counter-reformation gave birth to an artistic movement, whose stated aim was to bring heavenly magnificence down to earth. The large monasteries in Ochsenhausen or Schussenried, as impressive edifices of Upper Swabian baroque, bear effective witness to that Counter Reformation. Fourteen monasteries and palaces are playing their part in the theme year and have an open invitation to visitors.
Another highlight this year is the reopening of the renovated bel étage in Bruchsal Palace, the former residence of the bishop princes. The reconstruction of the suite of rooms in the bel étage of Bruchsal Palace is now complete and a lost chapter from Bruchsal’s history has come back to life. But more than that: in the 18th century, the prince bishops’ palace used to be one of Europe’s cultural and artistic “hotspots.” During WWII, numerous artistic treasures were taken away for safe keeping, including furniture, paintings and tapestries – more than 350 priceless items – and they are now back in their original positions. It is no exaggeration to say that the collection of valuable tapestries in Bruchsal Palace is absolutely unique. Altogether, there are 38 of them, one of the biggest collections in Europe.
The third Sunday in June is Schlosserlebnistag (Experience a Castle Day), and many people make sure it is highlighted in their diaries – not only those living in Baden-Württemberg. It is a day on which all the palaces and castles throughout Baden-Württemberg are open to the public and offer organized events particularly suitable for families. On October 8, the Erlebnistag im Kloster  (A Day in the Monastery) will be held. Visitors can find out about the world of the monks and the pupils who studied in the schools that were installed in the monastery buildings later on. Whether large monastery complexes or romantic monastery ruins, whether severe mediaeval chambers or joyous baroque dining halls, the range of impressions is extensive.
Every year, the Staatliche Schlösser und Gärten frequently renews its programming and adds new and unusual guided tours. It might be stroll escorted by a lady or gentleman in historical dress, applying all their charms and acting skills in transporting you back to their epoch; or it might be a gourmet tour, during which experiencing history is combined with a culinary extra; or, yet again, it might be a “behind the scenes” program, a children’s event or a walk by candlelight – whatever it is, it will include plenty that’s new or never been seen before.

BRITISH SONGWRITER AND PRODUCER JAX JONES RELEASES NEW TRACK — “INSTRUCTION” FEATURING DEMI LOVATO AND STEFFLON DON — TODAY

British multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer Jax Jones releases a new track today, “Instruction,” featuring global pop superstar Demi Lovato and British rapper Stefflon Don, via all digital retailers. Listen to the track HERE. 


“Nothing says summer to me more than Notting Hill Carnival,” Jones says. “That was the mental image I used throughout the making of this song. I took the idea to my good friend MNEK and the song came together really quickly. The DJ is the controller of the dance floor and lyrically, I wanted to reflect that; hence why we’re giving instructions!”

 

The carnival-esque banger “Instruction” follows on Jones’ hit singles “Housework,” featuring MNEK and Chicago house legend Mike Dunn, and “You Don’t Know Me,” featuring fellow South Londoner Raye. “You Don’t Know Me” has racked up more than 208 million global streams on Spotify. It also hit No. 1 on the Shazam Dance chart and peaked at No. 40 at Top 40 radio. Jones is currently the 106th ranked artist in the world on Spotify.

 

“I wanted to continue where I left off with ‘You Don’t Know Me’,” Jones explains. “We knew we needed someone with a certain level of swag and confidence to pull off a song like this so we sent it to Demi Lovato to see if she was interested. I thought it was long shot but she loved the record and delivered us all the right feels in the vocal. Stefflon Don is one of the most exciting new rappers to come out of the UK today, so getting her on a song with a pop superstar like Demi is a defining moment for me as a fan of music. I love clashing genres together. It’s one of those collaborations which is as exciting on paper as it sounds on record. I can’t wait to play this song at my festival shows this summer!”

 

Earmilk has called Jones “the man behind one of this year’s most memorable dance floor burners,” while the Huffington Post noted that “his understanding of both old school house and modern production give him a genuine vibe that just makes the dance floor come alive.”

 

Jones takes his inspiration from the hip hop, grime, and house music he was surrounded by in his teenage years. At 16 he was thrown out of the family home and start making grime on an old PC in his friend’s garage, where he lived at the time. These influences come through both in the studio and in his incendiary live sets in which he helms all the instruments himself, layering them upon beats and bass for a fresh, modern take on an old school sound. His biggest success to date has been as the writer and co-producer on Duke Dumont’s international 2014 hit “I Got U,” which resulted in Jones’ first UK No. 1, in addition to BRIT and Grammy Award nominations. In addition to producing two more singles for Dumont, Jones recently remixed tracks by Charli XCX, Lil Yachty, and Missy Elliot and Pharrell.

 

Jones is currently working on his highly anticipated debut album.

JUNIOR EMPIRE RELEASE DEBUT EP – JUNIOR EMPIRE – TODAY ON HARVEST RECORDS

Speaking about the EP’s opening track, the band said, “‘I Know’ is about that moment you realize you have had the wool pulled over your eyes. Along with a string of admirers, you have been falling for someone’s charm blissfully unaware until the moment you understand you were just part of their game.”

Junior Empire emerged on the scene last year with the summery “West Coast,” which peaked as the No. 1 most popular track on Hype Machine and has steadily racked up over 1.5 million streams on Spotify. Pigeons and Planes declared that, “the five-piece band come with a clean and direct pop-rock sound,” and called the track, “the kind of song you can imagine on mainstream radio or being belted out on the main stage at a big festival, and that is no bad thing.” Following up the heels of “West Coast,” the band released two additional tracks, “Decide,” and “Danger,” the latter of which Variance Magazine called, “entrancing” and wrote that everyone should, “definitely keep an eye for more from Junior Empire,” as Clash agreed that, “the group seem set to dominate 2017.”

Drawing fans in with their lively performances, Junior Empire performed a sold out show at Folklore in Hackney earlier this year and kicked off the summer with a performance at The Victoria Dalston earlier this month. Stay tuned for more as additional dates will be announced soon.

Junior Empire is Jack Balfour Scott, Joey Arnold Zapata, Diego Belmonte, Hannah van den Brul and Jordan Grispino.
