Seminal New York music venue CBGB (country, bluegrass and blues, since you asked) opened in 1973 at the meeting of Bowery and Bleecker Street, and was run by Hilly Kristal. During the late '70s, CBGB was the epicenter of the punk and new wave music scenes. David Godlis was its primary documenter. Here he talks exclusively to Retronaut about his photographs.
"In 1976, three quarters of the way through the 20th century, New York City, once a thriving metropolis, was destitute. 'Ford to City: Drop Dead' was the headline of the day. The music scene, like New York, was also sorely in need of repair. But in the most unlikely of all places — in the slumping New York City’s infamous Bowery, among the skid row bums on loser’s lane, far away from the Upper East Side and Upper West Side of Manhattan — a group of like-minded musicians and artists had their sights set on the future. In a small, dingy club, they would rewrite the past and set a template for the last quarter century in music, fashion, art, literature and film.

Uganda is a deeply religious country, with diversity woven into that fabric. Much of its population practices Catholicism or belongs to the Church of Uganda (Anglican), resulting from European missionaries and British colonialism in 1962. But American-style Evangelism is quickly gaining a foothold; there are also significant pockets of Muslims, Hindus and those who practice local traditional religions.
Thus, pastors, priests and religious leaders wield huge influence in Uganda. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the national discussion of sexual and gender identity spurred by the passing of the Anti-Homosexuality Act in 2014. Read more...More about Lgbt, Uganda, Us World, and World

BRUSSELS — Ireland appears to be granting Apple illegal tax rebates that may have to be recouped, the European Union's competition watchdog said Tuesday as it pressed on with an inquiry into the iPhone maker's overseas tax practices.
If the EU's preliminary finding is confirmed over the coming months, Apple could face a repayment bill worth billions of dollars because it funnels the bulk of its international sales through subsidiaries in Ireland, where it benefits from low, negotiated tax deals.
In a letter to the Irish government published Tuesday, the 28-nation bloc's executive Commission said the tax treatment granted to Apple "constitutes state aid" and therefore raises "doubts about the compatibility" with EU law. Read more...More about Taxes, Apple, Eu, Business, and World

Paris Fashion Week features eye-popping designs from Stella McCartney, Chloe, Valhalla — and one rather well-known gadget company based in Cupertino
Apple partnered with local fashion retailer Colette for a one-day Apple Watch window display.
Little has been seen or heard of the Apple Watch since the company unveiled the wearable, along with two new iPhones, on Sept. 9. The device comes in a two sizes and a dizzying variety of bands and body styles. There's even a solid gold model
Apple has made no secret that the Watch, which features a touchscreen, a traditional-looking (though digital) crown and a number of sensors, is a fashion accessory. In the run-up to its launch, Apple hired retail and design veterans from the fashion industry, ostensibly to help shepherd its first wearable into the marketplace.

What is... Stop right there, Alex, there's no correct response for this one.
Jeopardy got itself into hot water Monday night by featuring a category called "What Women Want." Unfortunately, the category was not a cute play on words and was, instead, a series of clues spotlighting female stereotypes.
The answers to the questionable clues implied that the only things women want in life are a pair of jeans and husbands to help with the vacuuming. It was like we were tuning into a replay of an episode from the 1950s.

Today's career landscape is bizarre by Boomer standards: 23-year-olds are CEOs, working parents are running businesses out of their living rooms and work-from-home opportunities abound in almost every industry.
Given these recent trends in the career industry, it's unsurprising that more and more employees are considering becoming their own boss — and many get the opportunity to do so. The "virtualization" of jobs, the influx of startup culture and the rise of the gig economy are all contributing factors to increasing opportunities for self-employed workers.Freelance, Job Search Series, Business, Jobs, and Mashable Careers
