Dan Cohen AUTHOR A new authority allowing DOD to provide funding to state and local governments for off-base infrastructure projects has been included in the final version of the fiscal 2019 defense authorization bill. House and Senate negotiators had to make several tweaks, though, as they reconciled competing versions of the new authority for the department to award grants to address deficiencies in community infrastructure if the assistance will enhance the military value, resilience or military family quality of life at an installation.The final language sunsets the Defense Community Infrastructure Pilot Program after 10 years, a compromise between the five-year limit the Senate would have placed on it and the House’s intention to create a permanent program. The final provision adopts the Senate requirement for state and local participants to contribute at least 30 percent of the total project cost; the House had proposed a 20 percent cost share for participants. The cost-share requirement can be waived, however, for rural communities or “for reasons related to national security,” under the compromise language.A transportation project, a school, hospital, police, fire, emergency response or other community support facility, or a waste, wastewater, telecommunications, electric, gas or other utility infrastructure project would be eligible for the program, according to section 2861.In the joint explanatory statement accompanying the conference report, lawmakers underscored the value of the new authority: “The conferees note the importance of the communities that surround and support U.S. military installations and believe that this program can be of tremendous benefit to both the surrounding community and respective installations.” Lawmakers reached agreement on the conference report Monday. The House is expected to vote on the legislation this week, and the Senate possibly in August.Photo by Aaron Rosenblatt
https://twitter.com/RecordingAcad/status/1024282785085906947 From dressing to impress to getting—and staying—connected with the right network, here are some go-to techniques for kick-starting a career in the music industryLakeia BrownGRAMMYs Mar 19, 2019 – 6:03 pm As college graduation season quickly approaches, most seniors have begun the search for their “dream job” in musc. While it’s an exciting time, the quest can be daunting, especially when applying to roles in an industry as competitive as the music biz. So how do you stand out? GRAMMY U provided answers and so much more at last week’s GRAMMY U Industry Insights: How to Get the Job workshop in downtown Manhattan. A packed room of recent- and soon-to-be- college graduates received pointers from a panelists of pros: Madison Rozynek (The Madison Square Garden Company), Ian Rifkin (Universal Music Group), Christine Schworn (Sirius XM) and Lisa Hauptman (Downtown Music Publishing). Here are a few valuable tips for landing the dream job. (L-R): Lisa Hauptman, Christine Schworn, Ian Rifkin, Madison Rozynek, Jessica McDevitt1. Dress the PartThe entertainment industry is known for pushing boundaries, but that behavior doesn’t apply to interview etiquette. While the dress code is casual to business casual for most of the music industry, always show up to an interview in professional attire. A general rule: It’s better to be overdressed than underdressed. Keep it business professional and leave the boundary pushing until your first day on the job.2. “Thank You…” NextThank you is never a bad idea, especially after an interview. Be sure to ask for a business card or an email address, and follow up with a quick note expressing your continued interest in the job and try to include something personal that was discussed during the interview. If you want to go the extra mile, “hand written notes will always make you stand out,” says Christine Schworn, Recruiter & Talent Acquisition, Sirius XM. And remember, it typically takes about six weeks from interview to hire, so be patient.3. Play Your Position Dream big but make sure your experience matches the job. How do you know if you qualify? Read the job description thoroughly, and be honest with yourself. Recent graduates typically land Department and Executive Assistant roles at entertainment companies to get into the door. Don’t shy away from these roles, even the temporary jobs, because they often lead to bigger opportunities says, Ian Rifkin, Manager of Internship Programs & Campus Recruiting, Universal Music Group. Network, work hard and you’ll be ready for the next level soon.

Circle of LifeRemember opportunities exists everywhere, even among friends. Getting an informational with a senior level executive at a dream job is great, but you can also create opportunities within your circle of peers. “Network within your circle,” says Lisa Hauptman, Global Head of People, Downtown Music Publishing. Remember to not only look up, but across. Your peers are the next round of executives.5. Stay Linked and AwareLinkedIn, LinkedIn, LinkedIn. Recruiters utilize the career site as a tool to identify candidates so keep your LinkedIn profile up to date, and if you don’t have an account, sign up, says Madison Rozynek, Recruiting Coordinator, The Madison Square Garden Company. Be sure to use an appropriate picture and follow companies that reflect your interests. And remember, LinkedIn isn’t the only space recruiters use for online research. Your social accounts are a reflection of you. Be mindful of what you post.Want More?: Check Out These 5 Surefire Ways To Make It In The Music IndustryRead more
Remember when the iPhone X debuted in late 2017? “A $1,000 phone?! It’ll be a cold day in…” Ah, so you do remember.Today only, and while supplies last, Best Buy has the unlocked Apple iPhone X (64GB) for $749.99 shipped when you choose the “activate later” option. That’s $250 off and one of the best iPhone X deals I can recall seeing.See it at Best BuyAs you’ve probably noticed on the product page, you also have the option of getting the phone for $699.99 — but that’s if you activate it with AT&T, Sprint or Verizon. My advice: Buy it outright, then take it to a carrier with cheaper rates. You’ll save in the long run, and you’ll have the option of switching carriers anytime you want.The elephant in this particular room is the iPhone XR, which also runs $750 for the unlocked 64GB model. Personally, I think they’re both great phones, but there are a few key differences. Post a comment $949 The iPhone X has a 5.8-inch OLED screen and the XR has a 6.1-inch LCD. They’re both gorgeous. I’d say size is the only factor that’s changed. The iPhone X has dual rear cameras, which allows for real 2x optical zoom and some sweet bokeh (portrait effect) photography. The XR’s single rear camera, meanwhile, is limited to digital zoom, though its software-based bokeh mode is surprisingly good.The XR also has slightly better battery life and support for dual-SIM technology. Beyond all that, the two are pretty darn similar. Read CNET’s iPhone X review (“Still a contender”) and iPhone XR review (“The best iPhone value in years”) to learn more.
