Marmalade & Alan Parsons Project Singer Dean Ford Dead at 72



Marmalade & Alan Parsons Project Singer Dean Ford Dead at 72
His daughter announced the news on Facebook saying he was “an amazing man, a gentle soul, extremely talented musician and a great father and Pop Pop to his only grandchild Connor … His music was his life and will now be his legacy for ever.”

He certainly mad an impression. In 1968 the Marmalade became the first Scottish band to top the British charts with the Beatles’ “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da.” In all they had 11 UK hits including, “Wait for Me Mary-Anne,” “My Little One” “Back on the Road” and their top 10 tunes. “Lovin Things,” in 1968, “Baby Make It Soon” and “Reflections Of My Life,” which sold over 2 million copies worldwide kept him afloat, at times, financially and it was from 1969, “Rainbow” in 1970, “Cousin Norman” the following year, then “Radancer in 1972 and finally “Falling Apart at the Seams” in 1976. Jimi Hendrix once called their single “I See the Rain” the “Best cut of 1967.”

He was involved with many bands including Dean Ford and the Gaylords enjoyed success during the 60’s live London scene that band evolved into the Marmalade. They also toured with the Who.

After quiting the band in the mid-seventies he moved to Los Angeles and worked as a limousine driver for Michael Jackson, Susan Sarandon and even Bob Dylan. He also delivered flowers and pizza. He wasn’t too proud to get the job done and bring money home. Ford once said that the only thing that spoiled his life was alcohol and that it took him away from what he should have been doing. He’d been sober since 1986.

I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of my dear friend Dean Ford. We first met in the mid-70’s when I produced his first solo album. A few years later he was the featured vocalist for several songs on the Project’s album “Pyramid. We both have lived in California, and would bump into each other on occasion. He was a lovely man and always very supportive of everything I have done creatively. He had a brilliant voice, and I will miss him dearly. Rest in peace my old friend!

He never left music through the years and he was still releasing new material. His most recent project was with former Badfinger guitarist Joe Tansin. – By John Beaudin

James Ingram, R&B Singer, Dead at 66



James Ingram, Grammy-winning soul singer Dead at 66
It’s another big loss to the music world. All his hits from the 80’s and 90’s are still being played on radio stations all over the world. He had 8 Top 40 Billboard hits. Starting with two from Quincy Jones’ ‘The Dude” album in 1981 – “Just Once” and One Hundred Ways.” The following year he scored his first of two number one hits, “Baby Come To Me” a duet with Patti Austin and a few months later came another duet, this time with Michael McDonald, “Ya Mo B There.” There was also his pairing with Kim Carnes and Kenny Rogers on “What About Me” in 1984. One of his biggest hits came in 1986 with a duet featuring Linda Ronstadt called “Somewhere Out There.” It Was from the animated film “An American Tale.” Also that second #1 tune was actually his last hit from 1990, “I Don’t Have The Heart.”

Ingram also had multiple Grammy nominations. He won two ‘Best Make R&B Performance” for One Hundred Ways and “Best R&B Performance By a Duo or Group with Vocals for “Ya Mo B There” with Michael McDonald.

Through his association with Quincy Jones he also had a co-write with the producer on Michael Jacksons’ “PYT (Pretty Young Thing)” from “Thriller.” He also wrote Jones on the song “The Secret Garden” which also featured Barry White, El Debarge and Al B. Sure.

Debbie Allen, Ingram’s long-time friend and creative partner, released the following statement. “He will always be cherished, loved and remembered for his genius, his love of family and his humanity. I am blessed to have been so close. We will forever speak his name.”

He was born in Akron, Ohio but later moved to L.A. He once played keyboards for Ray Charles.

TMZ is reporting he had been battling brain cancer. – by John Beaudin

Top 9+ Ways to Engage in Hepatitis Awareness Day (and Four Things You Should Know)

Today is designated as World Hepatitis Awareness Day. Agencies and offices around the globe, within national governments, alongside state, provincial and local partners, all are working to raise awareness of the importance of vaccination for hepatitis B, testing for hepatitis B and C, the availability of effective care and curative treatment, and the serious health consequences resulting from undiagnosed and untreated viral hepatitis.

The day affords all an important opportunity to raise more widespread awareness of viral hepatitis and its impact on the world’s population and expand healthcare’s coordinated efforts to improve the health of the estimated time 290 million people living with viral hepatitis unawares. Without finding the undiagnosed and linking them to care, millions will continue to suffer, and lives will be lost.

On World Hepatitis Day, 28 July, people from across the world will take action and raise awareness to “find the missing millions” – this year’s t

Top 6+ Tips for Building Your Best Hiring and Interview Team

Remember that YOU, the hiring manager, are ultimately responsible for all the actions taken when making a hire. This includes the actions of recruiters, support staff and interview helpers.

“Why recruiters,” you ask?
Your Recruiting Team Should Amp the Brand

You have a responsibility to work with your recruiting partners by providing them with the specifics of what you are looking for, the feedback on information submitted and building a partnership to ensure success in finding your next A Player. Take time upfront to develop the ideal candidate summary, then take time to screen resumes together. If you do this at the beginning of a relationship, less will be required in the future to have the results you want.

Choose your recruiting partners carefully. Remember they are an extension of your brand (the company’s and yours personally).

A good recruiter is able to tell a story around a company that is compelling and easy to understand. This is how they are able to attract good

Perpetuating Positive Momentum on the Continuum of Inertia

“When it rains, it pours.” Most are familiar with this phrase. It’s what we use to describe the inertia of negative circumstances building and snowballing.

Can you think of the equivalent phrase used to describe the opposite? The experience of positive inertia?

“Just look at the bright side”… “turn lemons into lemonade”… “there’s a light at the end of the tunnel!” These might come to mind, but each simply builds on turning a negative into a positive.

What about turning a positive into even more positives? Why is there no maxim for positive inertia made more commonplace?

If momentum can swing us one way or the other on the pendulum of professional success, how can we keep the continuum of inertia positioned in a positive direction?

Top 7+ Signs You About to Make a Hiring Mistake | Genomics Recruiter

Hiring a new employee is a time-consuming and expensive process that can make human resource and hiring managers feel pressured to cut corners just to get through it. While the frustration is understandable, simply checking the box is a poor approach. A bad hire ends up costing a company in numerous ways, including lost productivity, lost wages, lost revenue, damage to reputation, and having to go through the hiring process again when that employee quits or gets fired.

Here are a few common signs you are about to make hiring mistakes:
Going with Your Gut

There is a lot of talk about how people should trust their gut and go with their first impression. That might work in other areas of life, but it is rarely a good idea when it comes to hiring an employee. Whether a hiring manager personally likes a job candidate has no bearing on that individual having the right qualifications for the job or fitting into company culture. In the Genomics, Genetics, BioTech and Diagnostics Industries w
