Insurance coverage concerns may leave Ubers expansion to Winnipeg at curb

first_imgWINNIPEG – The ride-hailing company Uber is considering giving Winnipeg a pass over concerns about insurance rates its drivers may have to pay to operate.In a submission to Manitoba’s Public Utilities Board, Manitoba Public Insurance is proposing four different rate options that would see Uber drivers pay five per cent above their all-purpose coverage.The provincially owned insurance company says the rate model is fair, gives drivers choice and prevents other vehicle owners from subsidizing Uber vehicles.But Uber argues such a policy could be cost prohibitive for some drivers and says unless a blanket insurance model is chosen it won’t offer its service in Winnipeg.The city and provincial government have previously paved the way for ride-hailing companies to start March 1, 2018.The city’s cab industry has been critical of the decision, saying Uber drivers will pay lower rates and create an unfair playing field.MPI’s proposal says rates for ride-hailing drivers would be different depending on the time of day the operator wants to pick up passengers, or whether it’s on a weekday or weekend.Uber’s submission to the utilities board says those time bands could be cost prohibitive for drivers who work part-time only.“Based on the deficiencies in the MPI proposed product versus the type of insurance that is available to ridesharing companies in cities across North America, Uber will, unfortunately, be unable to consider expansion of services to Winnipeg on March 1, 2018.” wrote the company.Uber rival, Lyft, said in a statement to CTV that it also has serious concerns about the insurance proposal.“We don’t believe it would allow true ridesharing to operate in the province. We look forward to continuing to work with the Manitoba Public Insurance Corporation to find a way forward that expands Manitobans’ access to affordable, reliable transportation options like Lyft.”MPI, in a statement to the same network, said the proposed insurance rates for private vehicle-for-hire operators is consistent with other jurisdictions.“The proposed insurance model ensures that vehicle-for-hire operators are insured in a separate insurance class that will prevent cross-subsidization of loss experience with other major vehicle classes. Under the model, there is flexibility for vehicle-for-hire operators to select specific time bands in which they intend to provide for-hire services,” said the Crown insurer.Manitoba Opposition NDP Leader Wab Kinew, who has backed the cab industry and its concerns, said MPI’s rate application is reasonable.“It seems a little surprising that Uber is saying things aren’t fair when they’re being offered the chance to operate in Manitoba for something like 25 per cent of what the taxi industry has to pay to do business here.”A board decision on MPI’s application is expected Monday.

Fundy tidal power project delay continues

by Adina Bresge, The Canadian Press Posted Jul 1, 2016 1:48 pm MDT Last Updated Jul 2, 2016 at 10:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email HALIFAX – One of the giant turbines destined for the Bay of Fundy will be hauled by barge to Halifax for final preparations in the coming days, however, exactly when it will be installed is still unknown.In a statement, Sarah Dawson of Cape Sharp Tidal said the plan to install two 1,000-tonne turbines in the Minas Passage remains on hold indefinitely after getting the go-ahead from Nova Scotia’s environment minister.The turbine will be moved to Halifax for ballasting work and final inspections, she said. The operation will create more room at the shipyard in Pictou, N.S., to finish assembling the second turbine.One of the five-storey high turbines was scheduled to be transported to a test location near Parrsboro in June.Environment Minister Margaret Miller put the project on hold early last month, saying the province had yet to approve a proposed environmental effects monitoring program, but allowed it to proceed a little more than a week ago.According to Dawson, Cape Sharp chose to delay the project to futher consult with various stakeholders who feel they haven’t been heard.She said among those being consulted are local fishers who have voiced strong opposition to the project over concerns that the instream tidal turbines can’t be made safe for the ecosystem.“We’ve spoken to many fishers over the past weeks and months — and in fact years,” she said. “Like everyone who has an interest in the Bay of Fundy, we believe that a number of industries and interests can co-exist responsibly.”Cape Sharp’s turbines are expected to generate enough electricity to power 1,000 homes.The company, a partnership of OpenHydro and Emera, is one of several who plan to test different turbine technology in the Bay of Fundy.

Ovechkin Is The Best Player To Never Make A Conference Final

42N. Backstrom85.937000 12Jeremy Roenick105.682310 45Zach Parise85.054010 5Pierre Turgeon119.482200 26Brett Hull96.456000 17Keith Tkachuk99.791100 10Jarome Iginla112.450010 36Pavel Bure93.113010 50Henrik Sedin83.654010 Alexander Ovechkin’s Capitals have never managed to make it past the second round of the NHL playoffs. Sidney Crosby is largely to blame.The playoff futility of the Ovechkin-era Capitals has reached almost comic proportions as the team has made it nearly an annual tradition to squander a great regular season with a first- or second-round exit each April. And the Penguins are the team that’s most responsible for that history of failure: In their nine playoff appearances from 2008 to 2017, Ovechkin’s Capitals have been eliminated in the second round by the Penguins on three occasions. And each time, Crosby’s Penguins have gone on to lift the Stanley Cup — including both of the last two years.Another second-round series between the two teams kicked off on Thursday night, and if the result of that game is any indication, the Capitals might be looking at more of the same. Despite scoring just 17 seconds into the first period, holding that 1-0 lead for more than two periods, and then taking a 2-0 lead 28 seconds into the third period on a snipe from — you guessed it — Ovechkin, the Capitals managed to, somehow, lose to the Penguins. It feels like déjà vu all over again for the Capitals and their tortured fanbase.But regardless of how this series ends, it’s a safe bet that it will be competitive. Despite their inability to progress to the conference finals or beyond, Ovechkin’s Capitals have played a lot of playoff hockey — in the 16 series they’ve been involved in since 2008,1Excluding the one they’re currently contesting with the Penguins. they’ve played 103 games, or 92 percent of the maximum number of games they could have played had all 16 series gone to a seventh game.Perhaps it’s because the Caps are just 3-7 in game sevens during his tenure, but there’s a misconception that Ovechkin has been subpar in the postseason, which has clouded his legacy as one of the two or three best left wingers in league history. The 32-year-old Ovechkin has never missed a playoff game his Capitals have been involved in, and he’s averaged more than half a minute more ice time in the playoffs than he gets in the regular season. He earns slightly fewer points per game in the playoffs than the regular season — .95 versus 1.12 — but so do Crosby and Patrick Kane, and you won’t see anybody questioning their legacies. And for what it’s worth, Ovechkin has outperformed Crosby when they’ve met in the playoffs — 28 points to 24 over the course of four head-to-head series.2Including their ongoing series, which began last night.You’d think a guy who’s won seven Rocket Richard trophies as the league’s top goal scorer (the most ever since the award was first handed out in 19993Bobby Hull also led the NHL in scoring seven times, but he did so long before the Richard trophy was awarded. Bobby Hull is pretty good company.), three Hart Memorial trophies as the league’s MVP (one more than Crosby, mind you), and who this season became just the 20th member of the 600-goal club might command a little more respect. But the Ovechkin narrative — however unjust — revolves around playoff failures.To be fair, those failures are manifold. They’re also amplified by their contrast with Ovechkin’s regular-season dominance. From 1987 to 2018, Ovechkin has earned more point shares than any other player through their age-32 season. Among the top 50, only four players 32 and under failed to claim even a single conference finals berth: Teemu Selanne, Brett Hull, Ovechkin’s teammate and power play provider Nicklas Backstrom, and Ziggy Palffy. 48Phil Kessel84.522002 38Peter Forsberg91.241402 2Jaromir Jagr144.044202 7Mats Sundin116.543200 30Anze Kopitar95.030102 24Ryan Getzlaf97.452301 44Jonathan Toews85.440203 14Luc Robitaille102.445110 15Theoren Fleury101.560101 25Corey Perry97.152301 21Ilya Kovalchuk98.520010 20B.

Things didn’t end up working out for Palffy (and they obviously haven’t worked out yet for Backstrom), but Selanne and Hull remained productive in their mid-to-late 30s. Each man was blessed with longevity and an ability to mostly escape calamitous injury, and each finished his career having hoisted at least one Stanley Cup. Hull was 34 when he finally got the job done (in dramatic fashion), while Selanne was 36.Who knows exactly how much longer Ovechkin’s career will last, or how much longer he’ll remain the NHL’s best goal-scorer. To this point, he’s been like Selanne and Hull, able to avoid career-jeopardizing injury while remaining one of the league’s elite forwards. It’s difficult to sustain scoring numbers like Ovechkin’s for a single NHL season, let alone well into one’s 30s. But nothing of what Ovechkin does in the future — or what he did in the past — will matter if he’s able to lead his Caps to postseason glory this spring.So, could 2018 be different? Could this be the year the Capitals finally flip the narrative? This Capitals team is in many ways worse than those that won the Presidents’ Trophy in 2010, 2016 and 2017 (and they’re already down a game in yet another second round series). They score less relative to their competition, and they give up more shots, which means they also give up more goals. But maybe being unburdened by the weight of the expectations that come with being the league’s best regular-season team is exactly what the Capitals need. There’s a lot of hockey left to play in this series, and it’s anyone’s guess as to who will emerge victorious.If the Capitals can exorcise their Penguin-shaped demons, there’s no telling how far they can go in these playoffs. And even if they crash out in the conference finals, at least Ovechkin will get to wash off some of the stink that has followed him in his otherwise brilliant career. 46Joe Nieuwendyk84.671102 3Sidney Crosby137.933113 41Patrice Bergeron86.134011 49Ziggy Palffy84.221000 39Steven Stamkos88.811210 11Teemu Selanne105.732000 35Dany Heatley93.711210 read more

So two emus walked into a house in Galway

first_imgSOME PEOPLE WOULD be happy if a leggy bird showed up unexpectedly at their home and refused to leave.We’re kidding. That would just be weird.But that was the problem facing a Galway householder who got something of a surprise when two giant birds which appear to be emus – both almost 2 metres high – turned up in her garden on Monday and were in no rush to go anywhere.“Nobody knows a thing about where they came from. They just walked onto her land,” Imelda O’Brien of the Galway & Claddagh Swan Rescue told TheJournal.ie.The woman living in the house in Knockdoe fed the two giant birds (pictured) when it became clear that they were looking for food and didn’t want to leave. She contacted the rescue centre in a bid to trace the owners.“She was quite afraid of them,” said Imelda O’Brien. “Even though they’re extremely tame, they’re huge – I think you could almost even get up on their back, they’re so big”.She speculated that the birds could have come from a pet farm or a wildlife park, but may have travelled a long distance.Emus are the second-largest living bird in the world after ostriches and can run at speeds of up to 48 kilometres per hour for large distances.The Galway &  Claddagh Swan Rescue has placed an appeal on its Facebook page for the owners to come forward. In the meantime, the birds have been taken into the care of Galway County Council which is keeping the animals in an open space until their owners can be found.Hopefully the birds aren’t trying to emu-late* the Great Escape and manage to make their way home.*Sorry. We’re so sorry.Read: There’s a new ‘UCC Bird of the Day’ Facebook page already >last_img read more

UC San Diego Medical Center nurses rally for better benefits

first_imgUC San Diego Medical Center nurses rally for better benefits Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter Updated: 5:18 PM Posted: January 25, 2018 January 25, 2018 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — UC San Diego Medical Center nurses rallied outside two hospitals Thursday as part of actions across the state amid contract talks between the UC system and the union.The California Nurses Association/National Nurses United held the pickets and rallies outside Thornton Hospital in La Jolla and UC San Diego Medical Center in Hillcrest earlier Thursday to press their demands in the contract negotiation process regarding scheduling, retirement benefits and overtime policies, according to the union.“We have been in bargaining with UC for over eight months with dozens of takeaways still on the table that affect our ability to best care for our patients and undermine our quality of life,” said Maureen Berry, a nurse at UC Irvine. “As a public university, UC must respect and protect the patients and the communities we serve.”The union says that its proposals would involve scheduling registered nurses based on patient illness needs rather than budgetary goals, protect nurses from being deployed in areas in which they have no expertise, and maintain protection from mandatory overtime. The union represents 14,000 RNs at UC hospitals, medical centers and student health centers.Demonstrations were also held at UC Irvine Health Douglas Hospital, Ronald Regan UCLA Medical Center and UCLA Medical Center in Santa Monica and three others.The demonstrations in San Diego did not disrupt patient care, a spokeswoman said.A UC system spokeswoman said its proposal includes market-competitive wages, the same health insurance benefits as other UC employees and no change in pension benefits for current nurses.“The university believes its proposal reflects the skills, contributions and dedication of its nurses,” the spokeswoman said. “We hope to come to an agreement with CAN as soon as possible to continue delivering excellent care and services to our patients.” , last_img read more

Advertised salaries fall for fifth consecutive month in September 2018

first_imgAdvertised salaries in the UK are showing a fifth consecutive month of negative growth, according to the latest data from job website Adzuna.The statistics show the average advertised salary in September 2018 was £33,415, compared with £33,470 in August 2018; this represents a fall of 0.3%. However, advertised salaries have grown 4.7% overall since July 2017.Andrew Hunter, co-founder of Adzuna, said: “It’s worrying to see salaries declining once again, just as real wages were looking like recovering back towards where they were in 2012. Given the competition for jobs is at an all-time low, we’d expect salaries to rise as [organisations] compete for the remaining top talent.“That said, I am buoyed by the fact that over 180,000 British workers will see a bump in their pay from this month, as the [voluntary] living wage rises to £9 per hour across the country.”The rise of the country-wide rate of the voluntary living wage from £8.75 an hour was announced by the Living Wage Foundation on 5 November 2018, along with an increase of the rate for London, from £10.20 to £10.55 an hour.The fastest growing job sector for advertised salaries is teaching, with an average of £31,185, up 16.5% year on year. At the other end of the scale are advertised salaries for domestic help and cleaning jobs, standing at an average of £16,778, having fallen 12.8% over the year.The data from Adzuna also shows a drop in the number of advertised job vacancies in the UK, with the September 2018 total of 1,121,754 showing a fall of 1.4% from the August figure of 1,137,904.There has been a 12% year-on-year drop in the number of applications for British jobs from France, Germany, Italy and Spain.Hunter said: “Brexit is clearly having an impact on the health of the UK job market. Adzuna’s data clearly shows vacancies and wages feeling the pressure and, interestingly, migration patterns for jobs look to be changing as application rates for British jobs drop from workers on the continent.”last_img read more

While it wasn’t to be, his fourth album, the aptly titled A Matter Of Time, earned a nomination for Best Reggae Album. The experience also earned the Jamaican artist a little extra wisdom.”Winning a GRAMMY was definitely a goal when I started out. It’s in the back of your mind always, you know, maybe one day I’ll get that GRAMMY award, I’ll be nominated. So I guess I thought about it but I was not obsessing on it,” Protoje told us in his first-time nominee interview. “I didn’t expect to get nominated on my fourth [album] because I thought the third was the sure thing. That’s how it goes sometimes. It just works out that way. I was delighted when I heard that [A Matter of Time] was nominated. Things happen, and when it’s your time. You don’t have to worry about anything. Take your time and see what happens.”With talent and wisdom well beyond her years, breakout R&B phenom H.E.R.’s sees her five GRAMMY nominations, including Best New Artist, Album Of The Year and Best R&B Album, as an affirmation.”It feels like I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be,” she told us in her recent first-time nominee interview. “It’s so easy to question your art, even to question what you’re doing, to question the path that you’re on. But this is such confirmation for me; “you’re exactly where you need to be, you’re doing all the right things.” It just feels amazing, it feels like I found my objective and I’m fulfilling it.

Thai princess apologises after illfated run for PM

first_imgThis picture taken on 24 March, 2010 shows Thai princess Ubolratana Rajakanya visiting the Thailand pavilion at the Hong Kong Entertainment Expo. Thai princess to run for prime minister with Shinawatra party: party official said on 8 February. Photo: AFPA Thai princess has apologised after her short-lived candidacy for prime minister earned a royal rebuke from her brother — the king — and sent jitters across the politically febrile country just weeks before elections.Thailand has been mired in political drama since Friday, when princess Ubolratana’s name was submitted as a prime ministerial candidate by the Thai Raksa Chart Party.The party is allied with the powerful Shinawatra clan, which has won all elections since 2001 but whose patron, the billionaire ex-premier Thaksin, lives in self-exile to avoid jail.Ubolratana’s unprecedented bid to enter frontline politics unravelled within hours after King Maha Vajiralongkorn decried the entry of a royal into the political fray as “highly inappropriate”.Thailand’s monarchy is seen as above politics, although royals have intervened in public during times of political crisis.The princess was disqualified as a prime ministerial candidate by the Election Commission on Monday, which cited the royal command. It is now discussing whether to refer Thai Raksa Chart to the constitutional court for dissolution.In an Instagram post late Tuesday the 67-year-old princess apologised for her role in the drama.”I’m sorry that my genuine intention to help work for the country and fellow Thai people has created a problem that shouldn’t happen in this era,” she wrote.It was tagged with a hashtag: “#howcomeitsthewayitis”.Ubolratana is the first-born of former king Bhumibol Adulyadej, but she gave up her royal titles when she married an American in 1972.After her divorce, she moved back to Thailand where she is regarded by the Thai public as a part of the royal family.While she said she was exercising her rights as a commoner to stand for premier, the palace statement said she is “still a member of the House of Chakri”, referring to the name of the dynasty.The monarchy in Thailand is considered sacred and revered by its people, and is under the protection of draconian lese majeste laws. The king’s word is considered final.The scuttling of her candidacy and potential moves to dissolve the Thai Raksa Chart party is a blow to Thaksin Shinawatra’s political machine.The party was set to add to the vote bank of the bigger Shinawatra electoral vehicle, Pheu Thai, in an election where secondary parties are targeting seats via the party list system.Thaksin and his sister Yingluck — who was overthrown in the 2014 coup — live abroad to avoid convictions they say are politically motivated.Junta chief Prayut Chan-O-Cha, who toppled Yingluck’s government, is running for prime minister in the March 24 poll.Party executives from Thai Raksa Chart have expressed contrition after the upheaval, but said they would challenge any attempt to disband the party.A media organisation affiliated with the Shinawatras was also in the crosshairs this week.Voice TV, owned by Thaksin’s son Ponthongtae, was ordered Tuesday by the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) to go off-air for 15 days after two of its programs caused “confusion and provocation”.last_img read more

Fannie Freddie Profit Sweep Raises More Questions

first_img May 30, 2016 554 Views in Daily Dose, Government, Headlines, News Depositions unsealed last month showed that key officials at the GSEs may have known they were about to be profitable in 2012. Now the judge wants to see more.A federal judge ordered the unsealing of seven previously sealed depositions related to the sweeping of GSE profits into Treasury (the Net Worth Sweep) with results that sparked an industry-wide discussion over whether the government knew that the GSEs were about to become profitable in 2012 at the time the Net Worth Sweep was enacted.Now Judge Margaret Sweeney in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, who is presiding over Fairholme Funds’ lawsuit against the government over the Net Worth Sweep, has stated that she wants to review all the documents that the government has kept private to this point regarding any litigation over the government’s conservatorship of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, according to a blog post from Investors Unite is a coalition of private investors committed to the preservation of shareholder rights for all invested in the GSEs.Fairholme Funds, a Florida-based mutual fund that is one of the biggest GSE investors, sued the government in 2013 over the profit sweep, and the suit is still pending. Fairholme’s suit is one of approximately two dozen lawsuits filed against the government by shareholders of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac over the Net Worth Sweep.“Judge Sweeney made clear in unsealing seven documents last month that sparing public servants from embarrassment is not a reason to hide the operations of government from the public,” the blog post on Investors United reads. “Indeed, these recent revelations go to more serious issues at the heart of litigation over the Sweep—the rule of law and transparency in government.”The question of whether or not the government was invoking executive privilege by keeping documents related to the Net Worth Sweep sealed was first brought up by U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) in April 2015. The topic was recently revisited in a white paper by law professorSaikrishna Bangalore Prakash.“Indeed, these recent revelations go to more serious issues at the heart of litigation over the Sweep—the rule of law and transparency in government.”Investors UniteAccording to Investors Unite, the documents released in the last two weeks contain even more hints that government officials knew about the pending profitability of the GSEs when the bailout agreement was amended in August 2012. The blog post cites Jim Parrott, who in 2012 was a senior adviser in the White House on housing policy, sending an email to senior officials at Treasury the day the Net Worth Sweep was announced stating that diverting Fannie’s and Freddie’s profits would eliminate “the possibility that they ever go (pretend) private again.”Lawyers for the government have claimed that the GSEs were in the midst of a “death spiral” in the years immediately following their combined $187.5 bailout in 2008, and that the Net Worth Sweep was enacted in order to protect taxpayers. Investors Unite notes, however, that the newly unsealed documents point out that in 2012 just before the Net Worth Sweep began, Fannie Mae executives characterized the next eight years as the “the golden years of GSE profitability.”Indeed, 2012 was the first year of profitability for the GSEs after the bailout and they have remained profitable since (though Freddie Mac has taken a loss in two of the last three quarters). Under the pre-August 2012 terms of the bailout agreement, the GSEs were required to pay only a 10 percent dividend on their draw from Treasury.The documents that Sweeney has ordered unsealed in the last two weeks can be viewed by clicking here.

Raphael Saadiq calls Oscar nomination a huge mile

first_imgRaphael Saadiq calls Oscar nomination a ‘huge milestone’ by Jonathan Landrum Jr., The Associated Press Posted Mar 1, 2018 9:53 am PDT Last Updated Mar 1, 2018 at 10:20 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email ATLANTA – If Raphael Saadiq had a choice, he would rather be heard than seen.But Saadiq’s behind-the-scenes musical work has thrust him into the limelight once again. The musician earned an Academy Award nomination for his co-writing efforts on Mary J. Blige’s “Mighty River,” an original song from the Netflix film “Mudbound.”Saadiq called the Oscar nod for best original song a “huge milestone” in his career, but he is trying to stay even keel. When he first heard the news of the nomination through a friend’s text message, he just smiled.“I’ve always worked diligently no matter what,” he said in a recent interview. “I’ve always worked to the highest standards no matter who I am working for. I like to be behind the scenes instead of out front, but this just means to me that the quality of work I have embarked upon speaks to the testament of who I am as a musician, composer and a person who works with a lot of people.”For years, Saadiq has been creating songs as a solo artist and for many other music artists including Justin Timberlake, John Legend, D’Angelo, Kenny G, Snoop Dogg and Erykah Badu. He made his debut in the late 1980s as the lead singer of R&B group Tony! Toni! Tone!, which had hits like “Feels Good” and “It Never Rains (in Southern California),” among others. He left the group in 1996 and went on to win a Grammy for best R&B song for his work on Erykah Badu’s “Love of My Life (An Ode to Hip-Hop).”Saadiq wrote Solange’s “Cranes in the Sky,” which won a Grammy for Best R&B Performance last year. He’s also the composer on HBO’s comedy series “Insecure” starring Issa Rae.With “Mighty River,” it is Saadiq’s first Oscar nomination. He said Blige, who is also nominated for best supporting actress for her role in “Mudbound,” approached him about recording a song for the film.Saadiq said he along with Blige and Taura Stinson co-wrote the song before he even saw the movie. He would normally rather watch the film beforehand, but he was well prepared thanks to filmmaker John Singleton, who groomed him for such situations.“He started me off with ‘Boyz n the Hood’ and ‘Higher Learning’ giving me notes and never letting me see the film,” Saadiq recalled of Singleton’s method. “He gave me the characters, and I took it from there. All I had (for ‘Mudbound’) was Mary’s storytelling, which was great. She is very passionate on how she speaks and what she wants. Through Mary’s eyes, that’s all we had to go on.”Saadiq drew some inspiration for the song’s title from a couple of music legends.“I’ve always liked songs that had something with river in it,” he said. “From Al Green’s ‘Take Me to the River’ to Neil Young’s ‘Down By the River,’ and in gospel and church, there’s always something about the river that was very powerful. …. We just sat there and added mighty to river. Mary loved it. As we wrote the lyrics, it just kind of popped out.”When Saadiq attends the 90th annual Academy Awards on Sunday, he said he’ll be thinking of everyone who helped him hone his skills as a musician. He credits all of his collaborators and three high school music teachers in Oakland, California.Even though Saadiq’s calls the Oscar nod a high point, he’s focusing on upcoming projects. The self-proclaimed “studio rat” said he’s looking to record new music with Solange, the third season of “Insecure” and a studio album, which he hopes to release this year.“I live, eat and breathe the studio,” he said. “I just want to make records to be played in front of people.”___Online:http://www.raphaelsaadiqofficial.com___Follow Jonathan Landrum Jr. on Twitter at http://twitter.com/MrLandrum31___For full coverage of awards season, visit: https://apnews.com/tag/AwardsSeasoncenter_img FILE – In this Feb. 5, 2018 file photo, Raphael Saadiq arrives at the 90th Academy Awards nominees luncheon in Beverly Hills, Calif.
