“The people from APimage were so helpful and guided us through the design process, listening to our suggestions and making recommendations based off their expertise,” she said. “We love the way the shirt turned out, and hope everyone else does as well.” Students can visit Let’s Spoon on April 19 with vouchers downloaded from www.hannahandfriends.org/calendar. The group will also be selling the shirts for $10 at the Student Center today during lunch and dinner hours. Contact Jillian Barwick at email@example.com Saint Mary’s students can reward their sweet tooth while also supporting a good cause this Thursday, thanks to several seniors working on a class project. Chrissy Carson, Amanda Noesen, Michelle Rozman, Erika Scoliere and Kelly Smetana had no difficulty in choosing Hannah & Friends as their charitable cause for a marketing management class at Saint Mary’s. “Hannah & Friends is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for children and adults with special needs,” Rozman said. “We chose this foundation because they have impacted the South Bend community in such a positive way. Our group feels that Hannah & Friends’ mission is inspiring, and we wanted to help support the work they do.” After picking the charity, which was founded by former Irish football coach Charlie Weis and his wife Maura, the group decided what type of event to use as a fundraiser for the foundation. “We chose [frozen yogurt shop] Let’s Spoon as our event location because of its popularity among students and the community, and because it is a lot of fun,” Rozman said. “Customers can create their orders exactly as they want, so there is something for everyone. “We wanted to pick a location that would appeal to all ages and with the weather getting warmer, we thought Let’s Spoon would be perfect for our event.” The theme of the event is “Let’s Eat Something Sweet.” Rozman said this reflects the group idea behind the event of having a fun place for people to get together while supporting a great cause. After the group knew they wanted to collaborate with Hannah & Friends and Let’s Spoon, they shared their ideas with both organizations to discuss how to get the event up and running. “Our event requires a lot of planning,” Rozman said. “We have been working with both Hannah & Friends and Let’s Spoon for weeks leading up to the event.” The group worked with APimage to design a t-shirt for the event, Rozman said.

BRO – Tell me about how the inspiration came to make a record steeped in Asheville history. WM – Fresh, hot biscuits! Or maybe in a cup of mint tea from the garden. The stories contained on the appropriately titled Asheville dig deep into the mountain town’s history, telling stories of local speakeasies and tailor shops, tales of love gone awry, and highlighting local iconic spots such as Grove Park Inn and the Biltmore. Question – “Cornelia’s Masquerade” tells the story of Cornelia, eccentric heiress and member of what iconic family that built Biltmore? WM – I’d been on maternity leave for over a year when, in October of 2017, my old friend and bass player, Trevor Stoia, called me up to sing some jazz dates with his group, Hot Point Trio, at the Biltmore. I had so much fun and decided to put together a little swing group of my own. So I called up Michael Gamble, one of my oldest friends, and he jumped in on saxophone. I’d been in a traditional jazz band with Michael called The Gamblers and we invited our piano player from that group, James Posedel, to join us. Mattick Frick was a new friend. He’d made a name for himself as a drummer in Sirius B, The Resonant Rogues, and other bands around town, and was just starting to play jazz guitar professionally. I loved his style and voice and we shared a vision for creating a dreamy, nostalgic sound. I’m happy to say that I consider all the folks I play with close friends, which is pretty important considering how much time we spend together. I think it’s safe to say that all of us are pretty goofy and definitely don’t take ourselves too seriously. It’s refreshing to have a project totally unconcerned with being cool. I am a student of history, so when an artist takes on historical material as songwriting inspiration, of course I get interested. BRO – We are featuring “The Legend of Zelda Fitzgerald” on this month’s Trail Mix. What’s the history behind that one? WM – This one started out as a waltz I wrote in my sleep for my husband. I woke up with it fully composed and I went straight to the piano to get it down before I forgot it. We danced our first dance to it at our wedding. And a snippet of that original song is preserved in the intro “Dreamer’s Waltz.” Then James Posedel, our pianist, helped me write a bridge for it and turn it into a swing tune. When it came to to choose lyrical content for it, I was drawn to Zelda’s story. I suffered from anxiety and depression in the postpartum after my son was born and felt intense sympathy for the mental illness Zelda lived with for most of her life. How many people, and especially women, ended up institutionalized because they lacked access to good therapy, knowledge of diet and exercise, etc.? Would I have ended up like her if I had lived in those times? My husband was my rock during that time, as. F. Scott was Zelda’s, although, of course, their marriage was fraught with tremendous conflict. Still, I felt enough of a kinship to use some of their story to tell some of ours. Because this past weekend’s show sold out, Queen Bee & The Honeylovers will be hosting an encore performance on Friday, May 3rd, at Isis Music Hall, and Trail Mix wants to give you a shot to snag a pair of coveted tickets to the show! Whitney Moore, lead singer of Asheville’s swing outfit Queen Bee & The Honeylovers, recently penned a collection of songs rooted in the history of her hometown, Asheville, North Carolina. WM – As a fourth generation Asheville native, it’s bittersweet to watch Asheville change so quickly. As big hotels and condos go up, the landscape is changing dramatically, often destroying, or at least overshadowing, the very historic places and stories people come here to see. I wanted to share those stories, and sometimes with a bit of artistic license, dig further into them. Many of the songs were inspired by stories my grandparents told me, which I then went and looked up in the Pack Library North Carolina Room. And, of course, many were taken from local legends. On a personal note, I found studying history, and especially the history of this place where my roots go so deep, comforting during a time of upheaval and cynicism. It helped me to keep things in perspective and to remember that this is just one small moment in the grand scheme of things. BRO – Honey goes best on . . . Take a shot at the trivia question down below. A winner of two to this Friday’s show will be chosen from all correct responses received by Thursday (May 2nd) at noon. BRO – How did you go about putting together this particular hive of musicians? WM – So excited! I’ve gone to great pains to fill this album with little shout outs and tidbits for people to catch if they’re listening closely. I really hope it helps them feel as rooted to this place as I do and to celebrate our culture and history. By submitting your answer, you are not being added to any mailing list.

If the fund outperforms its benchmark after costs, the fee could rise to a maximum of 0.85%, while underperformance could reduce the fee to a minimum of 0.45%. Fidelity International has confirmed the pricing for the variable or “fulcrum” fee model to be rolled out across its equity business.The firm will introduce a new share class for 10 active equity funds in March next year, with a starting asset management charge 10 basis points cheaper than the current price.Depending on subsequent performance, measured on a rolling three-year basis, the fee will either rise or fall by a maximum of 20 basis points either side of the starting charge.Fidelity gave the example of a fund costing 0.75% a year at present. Under the new model, the ‘base level’ charge would be reduced to 0.65%. Fidelity’s fulcrum fee modelSource: Fidelity InternationalParas Anand, European CIO for equities, said: “For any client, the returns of active management are realised through long-term investing.“We believe that this new fee model allows us to demonstrate our value proposition whilst sharing the cost during periods of underperformance which all active managers, even the best, experience from time to time.“We hope, therefore, that this goes some way to incentivising clients to consider the value of active investing over the long term.”Fidelity is one of the few asset managers so far to have decided to pass on to clients the cost of third party investment research.In October, when the company first publicised its plans for the fulcrum fee model, it said the reduction in the annual management charge would be greater than the impact of research costs.In a statement today, Fidelity said this cost amounted to 0.0228% on top of the annual charge. The manager emphasised that the 10 basis point reduction was roughly four times as big as the effect of research costs.

The absence of Gareth Bale cast a shadow over White Hart Lane on Saturday as Spurs wrapped up their pre-season campaign with a 1-1 draw against Espanyol, but there were plenty of positives to be taken from the game – most notably the return of Kaboul and fellow long-term injury victim Sandro. Having played brilliantly in the final year of Harry Redknapp’s reign, Kaboul slotted straight into Villas-Boas’ starting XI last summer, but his 2012-13 campaign was over after just one game due to a knee injury he suffered on the opening day at Newcastle. “When you see your team struggling, or winning, you want to be with them. Win or lose, you want to be with them and that was a big frustration. “I missed football so, so much. I was very angry when I tore my quad at the end of last season, but this summer I got myself right to be ready for this season and now I hope the injuries are behind me. “I was in good form so I hope to be back even better than I was when I left. Now I feel fit but I will have a good week again before the Crystal Palace game (on Sunday). I have to be ready for next Sunday.” The Tottenham team Kaboul returns to is very different to the last one he played in. Indeed only three players who started against Espanyol yesterday were in the team that lost to Newcastle on August 18, 2012. Hugo Lloris and Mousa Dembele joined shortly after the game at St James’ Park, but Spurs failed to make the top four last season so chairman Daniel Levy strengthened the squad by spending £50million on Roberto Soldado, Nacer Chadli and Paulinho this summer. Kaboul has been so impressed by the new additions that he thinks Champions League qualification is well within the team’s grasp. “We are going to have to be in the top four this season,” he said. “Last season we missed it by nothing so this year we have to be there. “The new signings are very good. This season is looking very good for us. “Andre has done a magnificent job for the club. He broke the points record last season and this season will be even better for him and us.” The Frenchman battled his way back to full fitness in the spring but, much to his dismay, he tore a thigh muscle in an Under-21 game against Manchester United. Kaboul sat out Spurs’ first five pre-season games, casting doubt on whether he would be fit for the new campaign, but the Frenchman performed well as a second-half substitute against Espanyol and he cannot wait for the season to begin. “It’s been a long time for me since I played last. It’s been a year now so I am fully happy to be back with the team,” Kaboul said. Kaboul found life tough on the sidelines. Unlike Bale, who chose not to turn up to cheer on his team-mates, Kaboul was a regular visitor to White Hart Lane last year when he was sidelined. The former Portsmouth defender always sat on the back row of the bench behind the substitutes, even though he was not required to. Although being within touching distance of the pitch made him feel like he was still part of the squad, it also proved to be an agonising experience for the player. “That was very hard,” Kaboul said. “I was here to support the team, but it was terrible. “Sometimes you just want to go on the pitch, take the ball and go and score. To sit there all the time was hard for me. Tottenham defender Younes Kaboul is sure his injury troubles are well and truly behind him. Press Association
