A Tribe Called Red Brings Its Electric Pow Wow To Your Hood

I recently saw Tribe one frigid January night in New York City’s East Village, where they brought a bit of their world to the annual global music showcase known as globalFEST. Throughout their set, deejays NDN, Shub and Bear Witness scratched and looped dancehall, dubstep and moombahton into songs like Northern Cree’s “Red-Skin Girl” and “Cherokee People, Cherokee Pride” by Paul Revere & The Raiders. They were accompanied by friends Rhonda and Winter Doxtator, a mother-daughter duo that contributed traditional Native American vocals and a hoop dance in native regalia. The globalFEST performance seamlessly wedded contemporary and traditional elements, and it embodied Tribe’s mission: to express who aboriginal people are today.

The goal of their “Electric Pow Wow” gathering was to create a space to showcase urban Native talent and culture. In 2009, hip-hop producer and turntable battling champ Dan “DJ Shub” General, 31, also from Six Nations reserve, was invited to perform at one party. He joined DJ NDN and Bear Witness in Tribe soon after.
Over the past few years, the act has gained wider popularity in and out of Canada. In 2012, its self-titled full-length debut was long-listed for the prestigious Polaris Music Prize and landed on the Washington Post year-end Best Of list.

I caught up with A Tribe Called Red the day after their New York show and talked to them about their music, the Native-rights movement Idle No More and what’s next for them.
Monika Fabian: What’s your music-making process like?
DJ NDN: Dan knows how to work the programming because he’s been producing hip-hop for so long, so we sit down around him and we all kind of be like, “Alright, change this, do this. Alright that doesn’t sound so good, try this.” So we all have a hand in producing the track, but he knows the ins and outs. DJ Shub: It’s a lot easier than back when I was doing it by myself [in the beginning]. It’s like I have two minds talking to me at the same time.

The Man Who Landed A Job After Trying 1000 Times

It isn’t always that difficult for everyone, but the challenge facing young people in Newcastle upon Tyne, where Wesley lives in the Byker, is not easy to overstate. Yes, he makes an eye-catching headline; but also an important point. Could you or I peg away for that long without losing heart, especially without an experienced helping hand?
Now 20, Wesley went for pretty much everything you could think of, including supermarket jobs and bar work, but someone else always beat him to it. What he really wanted a job in the care sector, since he took health and social work studies at GCSE and A level and was attracted to the good done by people working effectively in the field.
That often needs a large amount of patience, and Wesley, who lives with his parents Tina and Gary McGinn, has certainly learned that. He says:
I applied for every job I could find. I went to ask around the local area at care homes but no one was looking for help.
Every day I would go to the library and use the internet to find jobs, and I would use the machines in the job centre. I was absolutely sick of writing my name. I only remember getting two replies saying I had been unsuccessful. It was very frustrating when I couldn’t even get part-time work. My family knew I was fed up.
Maybe his persistence helped his final success, but things came together after his local JobCentre Plus referred him to the Government’s Work Programme, administered locally by Ingeus. He had tuition in effectiveness at interview, writing a better CV and trying to make sure that the jobs he sought were well-matched to both his hopes and his experience.
They used to do this sort of thing in careers sessions in schools. Has that become watered-down or patchy? It would be interesting to know your own or your family/friends’ experience ; but meanwhile Wesley calls the belated opportunity “fantastic.”
And it worked. He was taken on by Care UK as a trainee support worker, working to help people with learning disabilities to live independently in their own homes. It’s right up his street; and Care UK manager Angela Lydon says:
Wesley is making a real difference to a vulnerable group of people and is happy to take on that responsibility. He has repaid us for his opportunity with hard work, enthusiasm and commitment, and his empathy for those with whom he works is obvious.

I hope this encourages others, without making light of the difficulties they still face. Care UK’s recruitment manager, Sharon Bell, says:
Historically, around 100 have people applied for every vacancy we advertised so just sifting through these was a very time-consuming job. Ingeus provides us with people who have been assessed by them as suitable candidates and fit the job description. Our experience so far has been very positive, and Wesley is one of three people who now have jobs as a result.
Have a good weekend. And if you’re having a flutter on the Grand National, remember that all northerners should back According to Pete.

Best Place To Buy Property In Asia

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
Indonesia’s capital Jakarta is predicted to be Asia’s top real estate market in 2013
With increasing GDP and foreign investment, Jakarta jumped up 10 places since 2011
Singapore got bumped to third place, from first place last year
Japan’s Osaka is the forecast’s lowest-ranked city for real estate investment next year
Hong Kong (CNN) - Forget the red-hot property market of mainland China - a new forecast says investors should be looking south.
Jakarta - Indonesia’s burgeoning capital of nearly 10 million people - is predicted to be Asia’s top real estate market in 2013, ahead of cities such as Hong Kong, Singapore and Sydney in “Emerging Trends in Real Estate - Asia Pacific 2013,” a real estate forecast released this week by PriceWaterhouseCoopers and the Washington D.C.-based Urban Land Institute.
The recommendation to buy into Jakarta-based property may raise eyebrows, but PriceWatershouseCoopers says Indonesia’s economic turnaround over the past few years has impressed international investors.
"Interest rates and inflation are under control, and while GDP is growing at around 6.5% annually, foreign direct investment is increasing at a much higher rate—39% in the first half of this year," the survey said. "Driven by increased demand from foreigners and locals alike, office rents shot up 29% year-on-year in the third quarter, according to (property services firm) DTZ."
That growth in demand helped Jakarta jump 10 places from its 2011 ranking but PwC warns the city’s real estate scene is not entirely rosy. Difficulties in finding inexpensive bank loans, trustworthy local partners and land with disputed ownership all mean “caveat emptor” - buyer beware.
China’s financial hub of Shanghai keeps its number two spot from last year. The PwC survey says the city’s retail property sector is heating up as investors shift away from the commercial sector, traditionally “the bread-and-butter investment for foreign funds in China for many years.”
But PwC adds that foreigners are generally not as tempted to buy into Shanghai property as they were in the past. The major reasons: a real estate market that is already saturated, the rarity of commercial-grade investment buildings and Chinese regulators that are not as welcoming to foreign money as in years past.
The tiny city-state of Singapore, traditionally a safe bet for real estate plays, comes in a close third, falling from last year’s first place. PwC credits the Lion City’s strong position as an Asian financial hub, an uninterrupted supply of real estate projects and continued demand for high-grade office space as the country attracts more employees from multinational firms. Put simply, both supply and demand for Singapore property is expected to stay strong in 2013, PwC reports.
Asia-Pacific’s Top 15 Asian Investment Prospects for 2013
1. Jakarta, Indonesia
2. Shanghai, China
3. Singapore, Singapore
4. Sydney, Australia
5. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
6. Bangkok, Thailand
7. Beijing, China
8. China-secondary cities (Chongqing, Tianjin, Shenyang)
9. Taipei, Taiwan
10. Melbourne, Australia
11. Hong Kong, China
12. Manila, Philippines
13. Tokyo, Japan
14. Seoul, South Korea
15. Guangzhou, China
At number 13, the real estate outlook for Tokyo signifies a ratings downgrade from “generally good” prospects to “fair” prospects. PwC says the ranking for Japan’s capital is surprisingly “lackluster.”
"Though investment potential appears good, investors have found deal flows restricted by the ongoing reluctance of local banks to clear bad debt from their balance sheets. A wide bid/ask spread has also limited transaction volumes."
The forecast’s lowest-ranked city for real estate investment in 2013 is Osaka and ranks at the bottom in most survey categories, from investment and development prospects to office buy/sell recommendations.
One major reason is a glut of new office space that is still being completed. At the same time, PwC says “in small regional cities such as Osaka, investors simply do not know where the bottom is because of uncertain demand.”
The silver lining is that Osaka’s four-year oversupply of office space is coming to an end, PwC says.
