Clayton Hutson Goes on the Road with Halsey

Every time famous pop stars go on the road for the promotion of their crafts, their tours are usually received with the presence and support of throngs of fans. Trying to carry on with the building publicity can both be demanding as well as challenging, especially for the support staff that try to create the best live performances to the best of their abilities to back-up their star. And for Halsey, it means having to work with Clayton Hutson – a well-known tour manager.

 

 

Halsey was born as Ashley Nicolette Frangipane. She personifies the contemporary sphere of popular music, mostly because of her unusual beginnings towards stardom.

 

 

The music of Coldplay, Tupac, Nirvana, and Alanis Morrisette were the sounds Halsey heard while growing up, and she primarily gained public attention by personally releasing her own brand of music on the platforms of social medias. Her big break came in 2014 when she signed a contract with Astralwerks, where in a matter of just three years she made it to the top ten music charts with her song “Bad at Love.”

 

 

Her supporting performances are with Imagine Dragons and Kooks; but currently she is about to launch the final segment last portion of her Hopeless Fountain Kingdom World Tour, which was named the same as her latest album. The said tour will see Halsey through most parts of Asia and Latin America, along with a group of pop female entertainers.

 

 

Halsey’s tour manager, Clay Hutson, has always used a DiGiCo console whenever he is on a road tour. The latest DiGiCo console he used wasthe SD7 during the tour of Maxwell, including numerous SD8s on a cluster of once-in-a-lifetime gigs.

 

 

Hutson commented that he also has the first D5 when he went on the tour with Marilyn Manson about ten years previously. And taking into account the unpredictability of Manson, getting a brand new console was quite risky. However, the D5 turned out extremely well. Hutson enthused that DiGiCo had his back during that time, so he has been using the said console ever since.

 

 

And Clayton Hutson’s tour with Halsey is nothing much less like the preparation he makes for the other tours he had, and as always DiGiCo is by his side. Learn more: http://www.artistdirect.com/artist/clay-hutson/3218396

 

 

OSI Food Group: Going Strong With the Acquisition of Tyson Food Plant

OSI Industries is proud to be a global leader in the production of value-added protein products, including meat, poultry products, customized sausage, pork products and items such as bacon and hot dogs. The company employs 20,000 people around the world and also has entities in 17 countries around the globe. In those 17 countries, OSI Industries has more than 60 operations within those countries. These operations consist of everything from plants, to distribution centers to companies that have been acquired by OSI Food Group throughout the years.

While OSI Industries has a massive global reach, the company is incredibly passionate about making sure it stays true to its American roots. The company is extremely proud to have its headquarters in the United States and always is looking to grow foothold in America. In fact, one of the company’s top commitments is to consistently expand in America, not just for the sake of expansion, but the company has a strong commitment to growing so that it can bring about additional manufacturing jobs to the United States. As OSI expands, the volume of jobs expands, which is a win-win for both the United States and for OSI as a company.

In fact, OSI Industries recently grew its United States portfolio with the purchase of a former Tyson Food plant. The plant was located in Southside Chicago and Tyson made an announcement in late 2017 that they would be closing the plant. This would mean that hundreds of people would begin to be laid off until the plant was closed. However, OSI saw this as a very strong investment and eventually acquired the plant. This acquisition saved nearly one thousand jobs in the Chicago area as well as allowed OSI to continue its expansion plan in the United States, specifically in Northeastern America.

OSI Industries has also recently acquired the large entity of Baho Food. The company is Dutch based and although it is one of the most popular household brands, as well as are the entities it owns. However the company was seen by OSI Industries as an incredibly smart acquisition due to the fact that the company also has a huge volume of entities in Europe, where it also has a strong presence. That presence continues to globally expand and under the umbrella of OSI group that expansion will now be fueled to grow at an even more rapid level.

Who are Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey?

In looking at the Phoenix New Times’ article on Michael Lacey and Jim Larking speaking out in response to Donald Trump’s pardon of America’s, deemed worst and possibly most questionable sheriff, we can see both Lacey and Larkin’s view towards the matter at hand.

The article starts by talking of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was convicted of criminal contempt in late July of 2007, for ignoring a federal judge’s order which stemmed from a 2007 racial profiling lawsuit.

It goes on to detail Arpaio in his extensive 24-year career as county sheriff, and his controversial aspect in being a vocal figure of support when Donald Trump started the birther movement against then President Obama, accusing him of being an unfit president due to his being born outside of the U.S.

The article also takes a stance on the matter pertaining to President Donald Trump’s pardon of Joe Arpaio and how it was a validated move by Judge Susan R. Bolton. At one point, Arpaio was responsible for the arrest of co-owners of the Phoenix New Times, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin. Read more: Jim Larkin | LinkedIn and Michael Lacey | Twitter

This was most likely due to the fact that New Times covered, and exposed information which led to the demise of sheriff Arpaio and led to his prompt resignation.

In taking a closer look at Jim Larkin we can see that he is a native to Phoenix who dropped out of Arizona State University when, in 1972, he decided to team up with Michael Lacey, where the Phoenix New Times was born. This e-newsletter became a fledgling campus weekly paper, which came about as a response to the bias local media’s coverage of student antiwar protests.

Larkin became the head of the advertising side of things while Lacey became the executive editor. The paper grew due to its coverage in exploring a variety of social and political issues. It gained popularity as one of the U.S.’ premier alternative newspapers due to its aggressive yet holistic approach in coverage. In 1983, Phoenix New Times, purchased Westword, which was Denver’s news and arts weekly paper.

This expansion would ultimately end up becoming a conglomerate of 17 similarly motivated papers from the west coast of the U.S. to the east. These papers included that of LA Weekly, Miami New Times, and the Village Voice in New York City.

In taking a closer look at Michael Lacey we can see that he was the son of a construction worker, and grew up in Newark, N.J., before moving in the late 1960’s to attend Arizona State Univesity in the west. In retrospect, in 1970, Lacey was a college dropout, and was at this point already publishing the inaugural issue of Phoenix New Times, along with Jim Larkin in response to the local medias shrouded coverage of student antiwar protests.

Lacey became the executive editor of the paper, while his partner became the head of the advertising side. Soon after which came the massive expansion which was composed of the purchasing of Westword, a Denver weekly newsletter.

On October 18th, of 2007 Lacey and Larkin were arrested from their homes by the infamous discriminatory sheriff of Maricopa Country, in Arizona, which led to a public outcry in which all charges against Lacey and Larkin were dropped.
