Cindy Birdsong

Cynthia Ann Birdsong-Hewlett (født 15. december 1942 i Philadelphia), bedst kendt som Cindy Birdsong, er en soul-/rhythm and blues-sanger fra USA. Hun var med i The Supremes det meste af tiden fra 1967 til 1976.

Birdsong var først med i gruppen The Ordettes, som efter noget tid ændrede navn til Patti LaBelle &amp wholesale soccer jerseys free shipping; the Bluebelles. De havde succes med sange som “I Sold My Heart to the Junkman”, “You’ll Never Walk Alone” og “Down the Aisle”.

I 1967 fik Birdsong et tilbud fra Motown-direktør Berry Gordy om at erstatte Florence Ballard i The Supremes. Ballard var på denne tid ustabil på grund af intern uro i gruppen og et stort alkoholforbrug drinking water in glass bottles. I en periode var Birdsong stand-in, når Ballard ikke dukkede op eller kunne deltage, og i juli blev udskiftningen gjort officiell. Omtrent samtidig hermed ændrede gruppen navn til Diana Ross & the Supremes.

Birdsong havde en vis lighed med Ballard og passede dermed godt ind ved sceneoptrædender. Hun deltog imidlertid mere sporadisk på studioptagelser i de første par år. I denne periode var det primært Diana Ross, der var den faste deltager. Birdsong og Mary Wilson blev i mange tilfælde byttet ud med andre sangerinder, ofte Motowns faste backinggruppe mens football socks, The Andantes.

I 1970 forlod Ross The Supremes, og Jean Terrell kom ind som ny førstesanger. Navnet blev atter The Supremes, og Wilson og Birdsong fik en noget mere fremtrædende plads i gruppen.

Da Birdsong blev gravid, blev hun i en periode erstattet af Lynda Laurence, og i april 1972 blev skiftet officielt. Ved udgangen af 1973 blev Laurence imidlertid også gravid, og Birdsong blev atter skiftet ind i gruppen som erstatning for Laurence. Birdsong var med til februar 1976, hvor hun trådte ud som følge af uoverensstemmelser med Wilson og hennes mand Pedro Ferrer, der var gruppens manager.

Birdsong havde hovedstemmen på “Till The Boat Sails Away”, “You Keep Me Movin’ On” og en ikke-udgivet version af “High Energy”.

Efter en ti år lang pause fra musikken, udgav Birdsong i 1987 solosinglen “Dancing Room”. Hun indspillede også flere andre sange

I 1983 mødtes Wilson, Ross og Birdsong i et tv-show i forbindelse med Motowns 25-årsjubilæum. I en periode var Birdsong med i gruppen Former Ladies of the Supremes (sammen med Jean Terrell og Scherrie Payne). I 1999 sang hun igen “You’ll Never Walk Alone” med The Bluebelles, da de fik en pris fra R&B Foundation. I 2004 optrådte hun med Mary Wilson og Kelly Rowland (fra Destiny’s Child) i et medley af Supremes-slagere i et tv-program i anledning af Motowns 45-årsjubilæum.

Harkness table

The Harkness table, Harkness method, or Harkness discussion is a teaching and learning method involving students seated in a large, oval shape to discuss ideas in an encouraging, open-minded environment with only occasional or minimal teacher intervention. The method is in use at many American boarding schools and colleges and encourages classes to be held in a discursive manner. The style is related to the Socratic method. Developed at Phillips Exeter Academy, the method’s name comes from the oil magnate and philanthropist Edward Harkness, a graduate of St. Paul’s School (New Hampshire), who presented the school with a monetary gift in 1930. It has been adopted in numerous schools, where small class-size makes it effective, but it remains impractical for larger classes. Harkness described its use as follows:

Harkness learning can vary, most notably between humanities subjects such as English and history and technical subjects such as math or physics. There are general principles and goals, however, that go along with that method regardless of subject matter. The main goal is to encourage students to come up with ideas of their own and learn good reasoning and discussion skills. Depending on style, the teacher may interact very little, interjecting only to guide the discussion.

The Harkness Table is used by many prestigious institutions, such as Beaver Country Day School, Reedy High School, Berkshire School, Sir William Perkins’s School, Miss Porter’s School, boys football tops, Dominion Christian School, Rocky Hill School (Rhode Island), American Hebrew Academy, Hopkins School, St. Mark’s School of Texas, Episcopal School of Jacksonville, Phillips Exeter Academy, Phillips Andover Academy, The Hill School, Mercersburg Academy, Choate Rosemary Hall, Milton Academy, Deerfield Academy, Appleby College, Havergal College (Toronto Canada) mens football socks, The Hotchkiss School, St. Paul Academy, The American School in London, St. James School, Maryland, St. Paul’s School (Concord, NH) running waistband, The Masters School, The Lawrenceville School, Boston University Academy, The Loomis Chaffee School, Cheshire Academy, National Cathedral School, Holton-Arms School, University School, The College Preparatory School, Hawken School, Middlesex School, Cate School, St. Andrew’s School (Delaware), Salisbury School, Falmouth Academy, Belmont Hill School, The Island School, Gould Academy, University of Chicago Laboratory Schools, The Ensworth School, Ritsumeikan Uji Junior and Senior High School, Seoul Foreign School (Seoul, South Korea), Avenues: The World School, Kimball Union Academy, IMG Academy, All Saints Academy (Winter Haven, FL), Marlborough College Malaysia, the Harkness Institute, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, The Bishop’s School in La Jolla, Pacific Ridge School in San Diego, SEK-International Schools in Spain, and the prestigious school, known as The Habersham School of Savannah Georgia (est. 2012).
