Pavarotti tributes pour in

Tributes are flowing for legendary opera singer Luciano Pavarotti, who died earlier today in Italy after a battle with pancreatic cancer. Acclaimed as the greatest tenor of his generation, many former opera singers have lauded the 71-year-old for his outstanding career including performances in Australia. The former artistic director of the Australian Opera, Moffat Oxenbould, says Pavarotti will always be fondly remembered for his performances with soprano Dame Joan Sutherland in Australia. "He was always very complimentary particularly to Joan Sutherland and Richard Bonynge for that 1965 experience because ... he always used to say that he learnt how to breathe from Dame Joan in that season," he said. "He used to say 'I put my hand on her diaphragm'. He always used to say in so many interviews throughout his career he said that time was very special to him."

Great voice in history

Dame Joan hailed Pavarotti as one of the great voices in the history of opera. She performed operas including La Traviata and Turandot with Pavarotti, telling BBC radio there was "no question" he ranked among opera's greats. "I'm very sorry to hear he's gone, God bless," she said. "It was incredible to stand next to it and sing along with it," the 80-year-old Australian star nicknamed "La Stupenda" said. "The quality of the sound was quite different - you knew immediately it was Luciano singing." She added she had seen Pavarotti recently and he was "not the same person at all". Retired Australian opera singer Donald Shanks says Pavarotti was a master of his craft. "He had something very, very special about the timbre and the tone of the voice and he was such a larger than life character that it shone through in what he did with his voice," he said. The great tenor passed at his home in Modena, the city of his birth, with his wife, Nicoletta; his daughters, Lorenza, Cristina, Giuliana and Alice as well other friends and family by his side. In fitting with the approach that characterised his life and work, the maestro remained positive until finally succumbing to the last stages of his illness.


London's Royal Opera House issued a statement hailing Pavarotti as "one of the finest singers of our time". "He was one of those rare artists who affected the lives of people across the globe in all walks of life," it said. "Through his countless broadcasts, recordings and concerts he introduced the extraordinary power of opera to people who perhaps would never have encountered opera and classical singing, in doing so he enriched their lives - that will be his legacy." "He had a unique ability to touch people with the emotional and brilliant quality of his voice. He was a man with the common touch and the most extraordinary gift. He will be truly missed by millions." British tenor Russell Watson told ITV television that Pavarotti had "without question" brought opera to a wider audience. "He was a complete tour de force, he was incredible, he lived life to the full," he said. "He was a big football fan, a real fanatic. Above and beyond all else, he had an incredible voice.


Mayor of Modena, Giorgio Pighi, says the funeral for the opera singer might be held on Saturday. "Pavarotti wanted to die at home. I saw him last week. He was very worn by the illness but he wanted to make conversation. We even spoke in the local dialect," the mayor said. Pighi honoured Pavarotti as "a person of unequalled genius".

    The Tao of Everest Expedition 2007
    Giving dignity to those who did not return -
     Between 1996 and 2003 Ian Woodall had the privilege of leading
    four expeditions to Mt Everest, and was lucky enough to
    reach the summit on two occasions.
    Now during April and May 2007 Ian is returning to
    Mt Everest to bury two climbers
    who are lying just 350 metres below the summit -
    an Indian climber who died in the great storm of 1996 and
    Francys Arsentiev, who became the first American woman to climb
    Mt Everest without using supplementary oxygen but
    then tragically died on the descent.

Armed with pencil puppets and a webcam, James Kotecki doled out Web 2.0 advice from his college dorm room. It turns out that the politicians were paying attention.

    Lord Black of Crossharbour
    Conrad Black, the former press baron jailed for 15 years for fraud, makes the front pages of most papers. His rise and fall is summed up in the Independent ...

    Black found guilty of criminal fraud
    Fri Jul 13,CHICAGO (Reuters) - A U.S. jury on Friday found Conrad Black guilty of criminal fraud and obstruction of justice in a grim Friday the 13th verdict that could send the former media baron to jail for up to 35 years.

    Conrad M. Black [was] Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chief Operating Officer ofHollinger International Inc.. He is a member of the Board of Directors for the Nixon Center. He is known politically for his staunch criticism of the Liberal Party of Canada. The issue of whether Black could accept a title in Britain was the most notable battle between Black and Canadian Prime MinisterJean Chretien - Canadian citizens cannot accept such titles without giving up citizenship and Chretien would not make exceptions. The National which had been launched by Black was not financially successful, and was sold to the CanWest chain then owned by Israel Asper.

    Maude Barlow, the chair of the Council of Canadians [QUERY: still current?]is cited by Leiterman stating Black is known to "routinely intervene in editorial policy-making". [1] Leiterman also cites Radler, Hollinger's president, as telling Maclean's (2/3/92): "If editors disagree with us they should disagree with us when they're no longer in our employ. The buck stops with ownership. I am responsible for meeting the payroll; therefore I will ultimately determine what the papers say and how they're going to be run." [2] Hollinger also owns the Jerusalem Post. In September 2003 that newspaper advocated killingYasser Arafat. This was quickly raised by the Israeli Cabinet, but described by Colin L. Powell, Condoleeza Riceas "unhelpful" and by The Economist as "wrong".

    Israel has no law against foreign press ownership.

    Bill Sanderson of Coffs Harbour writes:
    " What ever opinion one might have about Rodney Adler and the wrongs and rights of why he was charged, found guilty, went to prison and had a complete fall from grace, as many other entrepeneurs have over the years, the one thing different about Rodney Adler was that he was virtually one of the few real venture capitalists in Australia, who was prepared to put his money where his mouth was, and financially back
