The song that Rolling Stone has called the “single greatest song of all time” (http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/bob-dylan-recorded-like-a-rolling-stone-50-years-ago-today-20150616)was recorded on this day fifty years ago. A young Bob Dylan, only 24 at the time at the end of a full day trying to get two other songs recorded (“It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry” (then called “Phantom Engineer”) and “Sitting on a Barbed Wire Fence,”). Frustration had set in and neither song worked. Dylan had been free versing “Like a Rolling Stone” since his European tour early that year and started to play a rough version of it for the rest of the band on June 15th. The next day after the fourth take the song was done although Dylan and the band cut several more takes, but it was that fourth master that was the song to be included on Highway 61 Revisited.
The Beatles’ Help had the number one position firmly locked up or there would have been no doubt Like a Rolling Stone” would have held that prestigious spot. Only a few at Amen Clinics and even on Facebook were actually alive when it was hot.
Sometimes musicians get so into their music that they do something crazy like fall off the stage. That’s what happened for Dave Grohl, the lead singer of Foo Fighters, recently. He was singing the second song of the night at a concert in Sweden when he fell off of the stage.
The fans at the concert had to be shocked. Alexei Beltyukov knows he would be. No one expects to see something like this happen when they are attending a concert.
But, at least the fans didn’t have to go without music. Once Dave Grohl had left, Foo Fighter’s drummer, Taylor Hawkins, stepped up to the microphone and the band did covers of their songs.

As somebody who occasionally shops at Walmart (as most of us do), I have noticed the repetitive sound track they have blasting on store speakers. I’ve often wondered what it must be like for employees who are forced to listen to the constant intrusion of the same old songs, over and over again. Instead, the company will be playing a Radio Walmart, a station with songs handpicked by an actual DJ.
The change in music is part of a larger plan by Walmart executives to increase employee loyalty and morale throughout the company states industrial psychologist Dr. Jennifer Walden. Walmart also recently announced they will be raising the minimum wage, loosening the dress code and offering cash incentives for employees who earn them.
“There is nothing I like better than hearing about your jobs, your ideas, your hopes and dreams, and frustration, and listening to how we can make your lives easier,” Foran said while talking to Walmart employees in Fayetteville, Alaska. The changes to policy have been very well received among employees so far who are looking forward to a bigger paycheck without earning it by listening to hours of Celine Dion
William Hayes and Chris Long are known for their plays and calls on the field. A few days ago, the two best friends and St. Louis Rams teammates made a move that would enlighten the pair more than they thought it would. The two men decided to see what it was like to live as a homeless person for one day. The teammates wore tattered clothes and disguised themselves with makeup so that no one could recognize them and their superstar status. The two sat outside of the very same stadium that they usually play in. They didn’t realize how many snarky remarks and rude looks they would get. The duo also remembered getting unwanted interactions with the police. They noted that, had they been in their suits and ties and dress shoes, the police would have shown them the utmost respect. Instead, they got to see how the police really interact with those who live homeless. The pair ended up sleeping in an abandoned truck and had to huddle together for warmth.
He said it was the worst night of his life and he had experienced pain like he had never felt before, and Sam Tabar can believe it. That’s coming from an NFL player whose body is pushed physically for months at a time. The pair didn’t let this experience go to waste. They ended up helping a few people who they met on the street. They gave them temporary housing, groceries, and transportation. Thanks to the pair, the people that they helped were able to get more help from outreach programs and even employment. The pair hopes to continue helping those in need. Now they can say that they walk in their shoes.
Today something interesting happened in the great state of California as the large metropolis of Los Angeles is now just one step closer to getting that minimum wage rate raised to $15 per hour. There has been a great debate about this topic lately because people feel that the minimum wage is just not enough to live on, and that people who make less than that are in a state of poverty. It is true that the cost of living seems to get higher each year, but what people don’t realize is that when the wages go up so does the cost of living even more so.
According to an article found on reddit and written by Eater.com
, not everyone is in favor of the increase because some feel that it would put them at risk of having problems in the industry. As much as I would like to have at least $15 myself at work, I know that if this were to actually happen it could also cause a massive layoff in many companies. By having it lower, it is also allowed more people to have jobs that they might not have otherwise as any FreedomPop review points out

In Tijuana, Mexico Enrique Iglesias injured his hand on a drone capturing photos of the event. In front of a crowd of nearly 12,000 people at Plaza de Toros de Playa the drone came in low over the stage.

Who doesn’t love a good meal, complimented by a nice drink? I know I certainly have a penchant for it. Below we cover the right way to ‘wine and dine’.

They offer an array of services, ranging from sourcing rare wines to private wine master classes and cellar planning. “I want to sell something that people would buy again and again and get a great deal of pleasure,” owner Stephen Williams has said of his booming business.
Wine and food are one of the most ideal combinations, which people have enjoyed for centuries. There is a wine that pairs well with almost anything you decide you want, you just have to figure out what compliments what.
For example, champagne pairs well with anything salty. Sauvignon Blanc goes well with tart dressings and sauces. Like a dish with fresh herbs? Choose a bottle of Gruner Veltliner. Thinking fish? Pinot Grigio is a light wine that pairs well with seafood.
Or you can pair cheesy dishes with a dry Rose, and Pinot Noir is great for earthy dishes (anything with mushrooms, for example). The possibilities and food pairings are virtually endless, and can be very interesting to experiment with.
Nothing tops an evening or even a special occasions like a good meal and a fine wine to go with it. It can be a relaxing, wonderful experience you can share with family and loved ones, or even enjoy by yourself.
