A native of Pescara, the 29-year-old Berklee alum's album includes six origi- nal tracks that fuse Mediterranean jazz melodies with American harmonies. "This album is like a photo book. It represents many dif- ferent moments, emotions and experiences of my life and it would also be a little gift to all the people who have found a place in my heart. It is also a tribute to the music, my best friend. It was a long journey from my roots in Abruzzi where I was born, from my Italian culture, until the jazz and everything that means style, idea and cultural fusion. This album is a huge hug to everything that I love," says Marchese, who moved from Italy to the United States in 2010, after winning a Berklee College of Music scholar- ship at Umbria Jazz Festival. On the stage: Stefano Marchese (voice), Paolo Tomaselli (guitar), Jiri Nedoma (piano), Tino D'Agostino (bass), Giuseppe Paradiso (drums), with the special participation of "Arlington High School String Quartet."

News Briefs (Continued from Page i) Florida Moving into Third Place Florida very soon will be moving into third place pass- ing New York in population. This latest news shows the population shift away from the Northeast to the Sun- shine State and the entire Southwest. California is still in first place, followed by Texas. This news also shows the growing impact of Latinos in America. The future is here. Democrats seem to be smiling but the Republicans aren't out of the game. The electoral battleground is shifting quickly and now we shall watch upcoming elec- tions to see what we shall see. I Want Some Science with My Science The moonbats are still pushing their science on us about global warming. Even though the real facts aren't that clear as they seem to think and preach. The real- ity is that there has been no real global warming since at least 1998. Both sides agree on this. However, it would appear liberals have thrown politics into science which is never a wise approach. Lis- ten, I am not anti-science, I believe that over the billions of years this planet and this solar system has been here, we have constantly been evolving. Hotter Ages, Ice Ages and Ages in between. I believe in climate change because-that is science. The debate ranges all about global warming, but did you know that every year we move further away from the sun? One hundred years from now the sun will be even further away from mother earth. We are a long way from not being 93 mil- lion miles away but if we find a way not to kill each other here, eventually we will be 92 million miles away. I am not worried about any significant global warming or cooling at the moment. about former Defense Sec- retary Robert Gates and his new book is hardly on the liberal media's radar. Thanks to Gates we now know the president may not have actually believed the Afghan Policy he was push- ing in public. We now appar- ently know that Secretary of State HiIlary Clinton at times put politics rather than sound policy on Afghanistan. Closing lanes causing gridlock should never have a political motive because it can make commuters madder than hell. Playing dirty politics with the public getting victimized as a result is unacceptable and hope- fully Christie will keep a better eye on those who work for him. He has apologized to the Mayor of Fort Lee, NJ and to the citizens of that com- munity. He is cleaning up the mess handed him. How- ever, is this story that big that the media needs to keep beating up endlessly on the governor? Fox News Network doesn't really like Christie that much either but they aren't doing gavel to gavel coverage on Christie and neither should MSNBC. The media bias is so clearly being shown on this news story in comparison with the silence on Benghazi, the IRS and NSA and of course Obamacare or as I call it the Unaffordable Care Act. Medicaid for All? Under what I refer to as the "Unaffordable Care Act," more and more people are being forced on to the Med- icaid rolls. The Obama-ites hold to a faulty premise that expanding the number of Americans on Medicaid would save healthcare dol- Going Overboard Over Chris Christie and "Traffic Lane" Gate The news lately is all about Governor Chris Christie from New Jersey. The clos- ing of traffic lanes at the George Washington Bridge connecting NJ to NY is now an obsession with the lib- eral news media. Look at MSNBC. I try to do that as little as possible. However, on the day that Christie held his 107 minute press conference; MSNBC starting running round the clock news on this horrible scan- dal. All day, all Christie, all the time, nothing else important to see. Our lame-stream news media didn't have this kind of coverage for the IRS tar- geting conservatives, for NSA snooping, for Obama- care or for Benghazi where four Americans died. Has Governor Christie been truthful and forth- coming? Certainly looks that way. Until we hear otherwise, the governor acted appropriately when he needed to. People have been fired, others may follow. Meanwhile, the news lars and empty out hospi- tal emergency rooms. These claims are now being proven false. In Oregon, researchers have found that those on Medicaid actually use emer- gency rooms 40 percent more than the uninsured. Meanwhile, the New En- gland Journal of Medicine pub- hshed a study showing those on Medicaid are no healthier than the uninsured. Also, chances are that with more people inside the insurance pool with a doctor shortage surely will lead to ERs get- ting rush hour traffic. Latest Benghazi Victim Too bad the liberal news media hasn't spent a tenth of the time on Benghazi as they have spent on two lanes being closed in New Jersey at the George Washington Bridge to the Big Apple. Gov- ernor Chris Christie didn't wait to address this issue and firing folks who allegedly misused the public trust. The other day on MSNBC, one would think the Christie story had shaken the foun- dation of America. President Obama gets away with mak- ing a pretend promise over healthcare coverage and Hillary Clinton has never apologized over the killings of Americans in Benghazi. You can bet if Christie were a Democrat, liberals would have walked away from this Jersey story. However, when the NY Times comes to Hillary's de- fense of the Benghazi story, you can almost bet that news story was leaked to help Hillary in 2016. The latest victim at Benghazi appears to be the truth and the cred- ibility of the NY Times. I choose to remember the real victims, Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Ty Woods and Glen Doherty.
