Google could be buying Spotify for $41.1 Billion Cash | Breaking News


Google is now planning to acquire Spotify in a deal valued at roughly $41.1 billion in cash and equity.

The acquisition, first reported by the Wall Street Journal this morning, creates a clear frontrunner in the music subscription space. It would also give Google a massive edge over competitors like Apple Music.

According to research emerging this week, Apple Music now has more unique users than any other streaming music service. Apple’s rapid ascent may have rekindled the on-again, off-again acquisition talks.

The unexpected acquisition may also accelerate the upcoming combination of Google Music and YouTube. Currently, Alphabet and its Google and YouTube subsidiaries are struggling to create a strong, premium music streaming service. That just changed with the acquisition of Spotify, which is now reaching its 50 millionth paying subscriber.

Three Signs That You Need Professional Help

When Self-Help Isn’t Enough – Signs That You Need Professional Help
Sometimes you get to a point in your self-help journey where you realize that what you’re doing for yourself just isn’t enough anymore, or quite possibly never was. When you get to this point, it may be time to get help from a professional. Listed below is a list of common mental disorders and the signs that you need further help.

1. Anxiety

If you’ve tried meditation, exaggerating your biggest fear, and distracting yourself but they haven’t worked, it’s easy to get flustered. But this may not always be your warning sign that you need more help. You may just need to keep trying out the methods or try some new ones.

However, you may need help if you’re noticing that your anxiety is causing you a lot of distress and getting in the way of your life. If your anxiety is preventing you from going to school or work, drive, or go to the grocery store, this is when you may need to get some professional help. Talk to your doctor about the options open to you before going through with anything.

2. Depression

If you’ve tried being more active, avoiding alcohol and caffeine, and you’ve talked to your loved ones about how you’re feeling, but those things just aren’t helping you to manage your depression, you may just end up getting more depressed. Don’t jump to conclusions though that you need help because those tips haven’t worked. There are always different tips to try that just might do the trick for you.

However, if you’ve ever had thoughts of harming yourself to escape from your depression, get the help you need now. Another sign that you need professional help would be if your depression is getting in the way of you having fun. If you choose staying at home in your room, depressed and angry with the world over going out with your friends, for example, it’s time to get help. Don’t let your depression get the best of you. Whenever you decide that you need professional help, it’s available at any time of day.

3. Addiction

If you’ve tried talking to your loved ones and eliminating the thing you’re addicted to from your life but it hasn’t worked, this may be the time for you to get help from a professional. Addictions can be very dangerous and toxic to your body. You need to get help right away if you still have a feeling of need towards what you’re addicted to. Professionals will be able to help you and eliminate that sense of need.

If you feel as though your mental state is getting too much for you to handle, you need to get the professional help you need. Ask for help before it’s too late. Different types of illnesses all have different tell-tale signs that you need further help. Don’t wait until the symptoms listed above happen to you. You know your body best. Listen to what your body is telling you; get the help you need.

Adam Cohhen pays tribute to late father Leonard Cohen | Music News


Leonard Cohen’s son Adam paid tribute to his late father as he accepted the Artist Of The Year gong on his behalf at Canada’s Juno Awards this weekend (01-02Apr17).

The annual ceremony recognizes the most talented musicians in Canada, with a gala dinner held on Saturday night (01Apr17) before the remaining winners were announced at a ceremony at the Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa on Sunday (02Apr17).

Saturday’s celebration saw Adam take to the stage to accept the prize for his father, who died last November (16), and joked about the amount of nominees, including The Weekend and Drake, missing the ceremony.

“As you know, Leonard Cohen is not here to accept this award. Many international artists find excuses to not participate in the Junos. I think he’s found the best one yet,” Adam laughed, referencing the fact that both Drake and The Weekend are being kept busy on tour.

North Carolina Vs Gonzaga the title game we all wanted.


GLENDALE, Ariz. — OK, it’s not Duke vs. Kentucky. This is even more appetizing.

It’s largely the same Tar Heels team that was sobbing uncontrollably in the locker room a year ago at this time after watching Kris Jenkins drain perhaps the most memorable shot in national title game history, a buzzer-beater that saw Villanova — not North Carolina — cutting down the nets.

It’s a Gonzaga program that has long been criticized for playing in a lackluster conference, in the wee hours of the morning for those on the East Coast, and one that has been crushed for not being able to advance to the sport’s final weekend.

North Carolina vs. Gonzaga on Monday night in the national championship game.
