Dear Editor,I’m taking this opportunity in your newspaper column to voice my concern about the loud music that is being played every Thursday and Sunday by the Ballaz Bar.Our community is West Ruimveldt Estate.This bar has been playing their music very loudly, many times until 04:00h in the morning. This is causing much distress to neighbours and their children. Our children cannot study or even get a good night’s sleep and many children go to the West Ruimveldt Primary School, the area which the bar is also located.The bar also had a shooting recently and Police found a gun. They are being allowed to play their music very loudly until after 02:00h.Many calls were made by neighbours to the Ruimveldt Police Station but nothing has been done. Police patrols would pass and “gaff” with the people of the bar and just allow the music to continue.This situation is getting worse. This situation needs Minister Ramjattan’s attention. This music is so loud, even the roofs of the houses shake and car alarms go off. How can residents live in this situation?Sincerely,Concerned residents

Move over Hard Rock Café. Watch out Planet Hollywood. A music magazine is leaping off the printed page into the frying pan.Rolling Stone founder/editor/publisher Jann S. Wenner announced late last week a partnership with the principals of real estate developer the Lucky Rug Group to launch a 10,000 square-foot restaurant/bar/lounge/private event space next summer at Los Angeles’ Hollywood and Highland Center—situated along the Hollywood Walk of Fame and home to Grauman’s Chinese Theatre and the Kodak Theatre. Details were sparse concerning the forthcoming mega venue’s food menu and drink list but Wenner, et al., said it would feature “exposed black brick, tufted leather and vaulted ceilings throughout the location, as well as a stunning antique iron staircase.” There won’t be any music industry memorabilia (read: bric-a-brac) like you see plastered all over the walls at a Hard Rock, though. “We are both excited and determined to bring the spirit of the magazine to life—the edginess, the coolness, the classiness and the timelessness—in making this venue a place to see and be seen,” Lucky Rug Group co-owner and Rolling Stone stakeholder Niall Donnelly said in the announcement.Cool? Edgy? Sure, it’s had its moments, but those aren’t words I’d necessarily associate with the granddaddy of music magazines, at least not for the last several years.At any rate, getting into the restaurant businesses for anyone is, well, risky businesses. Planet Hollywood, for instance, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection a number of times. The Rolling Stone brand, though, seems like a strong enough platform from which to launch a restaurant/bar project. It’s recognized across ages, gender and music preference. And, besides, Rolling Stone isn’t the only print magazine business that’s rolling the dice on branded venues. Maybe I’ll check out the new restaurant some night, but only if Wenner’s working the bar.
Tags Share your voice Culture Post a comment 0 The Google Assistant will call restaurants and salons to make reservations on your behalf. James Martin/CNET The Duplex national tour is rolling out to almost every state in the US. On Wednesday, Google said Duplex, its human-sounding voice assistant feature, will be coming to Pixel Phones in 43 states across the country. Duplex can make phone calls on your behalf and uses humanlike speech patterns, complete with pauses, umms and ahhs. The Google Assistant feature is designed to sound just like a person and is used to call restaurants and stores to set up appointments and reservations.The states: AlabamaAlaskaArizonaArkansasCaliforniaColoradoConnecticutDelawareFloridaGeorgiaHawaiiIdahoIllinoisIowaKansasMaineMarylandMassachusettsMichiganMississippiMissouriNevadaNew HampshireNew JerseyNew MexicoNew YorkNorth CarolinaNorth DakotaOhioOklahomaOregonPennsylvaniaRhode IslandSouth CarolinaSouth DakotaTennesseeUtahVermontVirginiaWashingtonWest VirginiaWisconsinWyomingThe states not included are Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska and Texas.Google debuted Duplex during its developer’s conference last May and rolled it out to Pixel phones last November after a limited beta test in June. The voice assistant was originally piloted in select cities including New York, Atlanta, Phoenix and San Francisco. Duplex’s realistic speech patterns raised ethics questions about people not being able to tell if they’re chatting with a machine. Google said Duplex would have a disclosure built in, telling recipients from the start that they’re talking to a robot. Duplex works by telling your Google Assistant to book a table at a restaurant or make a reservation. The assistant calls the restaurant on its own, sets up the appointment if it’s available, then adds it to the user’s calendar. “We look forward to bringing this service to more people across the US to make planning a night out just a bit easier. Over the next few weeks, we’ll start slowly bringing this feature to more Android and iOS devices and will continue to incorporate feedback as we continue testing,” Google said in a blog post Wednesday.
