The Pointer Sisters – 10 of the best

The California group’s hybrid soul and funk took a while to form but it was finessed to perfection on hits including Chainey Do, I’m So Excited and Slow HandThe Pointer Sisters’ parents – both preachers – banned rock’n’roll from the family home (along with nail polish, trousers and boys), intending to raise gospel singers. But by the late 1960s, youngest sisters June and Bonnie had been bitten by the pop bug and were performing at nightclubs, adding older sister Anita to the lineup and signing with Atlantic Records in the early 70s for a couple of underwhelming singles. After Atlantic dropped the trio, they recruited eldest sister Ruth, returned to the clubs and started getting work as session singers – most notably, they cut the vocals for Sesame Street’s funkadelic Pinball Number Count segment – before crossing the path of David Rubinson, a record producer whose credits included early Herbie Hancock fusion masterpieces Mwandishi and Sextant. Teamed with an ace group of funk and soul musicians, the Sisters cut a career-making demo, reworking an old civil-rights anthem penned by New Orleans R&B figurehead Allen Toussaint. There wasn’t much to Yes We Can Can – a rock-solid rhythm, lean shivers of funk guitar, the sisters’ hypnotic criss-crossing harmonies and Anita’s fearless lead vocal – but its six minutes of righteousness (calling listeners to “Respect the women of the world / Remember you all have mothers”) made for an electrifying secular-gospel stormer, a paean to positivity the Pointers took as their anthem. “When we started out, that was our theme,” Anita later said. “You know: ‘Yes, we can!’” Reaching No 11 on the Billboard pop charts, their debut singled proved that the Pointer Sisters’ confidence was well placed.

Russell Clark Speaks In RealVision's "Most Requested Interview Ever"

According to RealVision, he’s one of the greatest investors you’ve never heard of. According to us, he ran what was (formerly) the world's most bearish hedge fund, although at the end of 2016, after suffering substantial losses, he capitulated and went flat, after closing much of his short book. To be sure, Russell Clark, and his Horseman Global (which after phenomenal returns for much in the post-crisis period, closed 2016 with a thud, dropping 24% and down another 8% YTD, isn’t a household name. But in investment circles, he’s known as one of the world's most aggresive, and better, short sellers. In a rare camera appearance, Russell Clark sat down with Real Vision TV’s Raoul Pal in what has been dubbed as "one of RealVision's most requested interviews ever", to discuss investing and share his approach to markets. In one part of the interview, Clark says that one reason for his success is his focus on currencies. While for many investors the risk and reward of currencies is an afterthought, it forms the base of Clark’s investment worldview.  “What we try and do is invert the process,” Clark says. “So, we'd put currencies at the beginning of the investment process rather than at the end. And that's really been the heart of how I look at things…”   Next, as we conveniently laid out just yesterday in "Why Horseman Global Is Aggressively Shorting Shale", Clark touches on his short shale thesis, telling Pal that shale oil is "an industry that shouldn’t exist." As we discussed yesterday, Clark has once again emerged from his recent "neutral" position and is shorting shale oil stocks. According to Clark, shale oil companies “never make any money,” and the industry only exists because borrowing costs are so low. He compares U.S. shale today to China’s steel industry in 2012 - just before it crashed. For those who missed it, here are more details on his latest short bet from his latest letter to Horseman investors: I had shorted shale producers and the related MLP stocks before, and I knew there was something wrong with the industry, but I failed to find the trigger for the US shale industry to fail. And like most other investors I was continually swayed by the statements from the US shale drillers that they have managed to cut breakeven prices even further. However, I have taken a closer look at the data from EIA and from the company presentations. The rising decline rates of major US shale basins, and the increasing incidents of frac hits (also a cause of rising decline rates) have convinced me that US shale producers are not only losing competitiveness against other oil drillers, but they will find it hard to make money. If US rates continue to stay low, then it is possible that the high yield markets may continue to supply these drillers with capital, but I think that this is unlikely. More likely is that at some point debt investors start to worry that they will not get their capital back and cut lending to the industry. Even a small reduction in capital, would likely lead to a steep fall in US oil production. If new drilling stopped today, daily US oil production would fall by 350 thousand barrels a day over the next month (Source: EIA).   What I also find extraordinary, is that it seems to me shale drilling is a very unprofitable industry, and becoming more so. And yet, many businesses in the US have expended large amounts of capital on the basis that US oil will always be cheap and plentiful. I am thinking of pipelines, refineries, LNG exporters, chemical plants to name the most obvious. Even more amazing is that other oil sources have become more cost competitive but have been starved of resources. If US oil production declines, the rest of the world will struggle to increase output. An oil squeeze looks more likely to me. A broader commodity squeeze also looks likely to me. More on Clark's latest shale bet in the excerpt below. Among the other topics covered, is Clark's take on how investing relates to poker… including why a seemingly inferior hand can actually make much more money than a hidden pair of aces. The full interview can be found here, along with a free 7 day trial.

The Open 2017: Jordan Speith leads the way after third round – as it happened

Branden Grace became the first man to shoot 62 in a major, while Jordan Spieth looked to close in on his first Open title. 7.55pm BST That’s the end of Moving Day. A third round for the ages, not least because Branden Grace finally became the first man to shoot lower than 63 in a major tournament. The relentless Jordan Spieth meanwhile is on course for his first victory at the Open Championship. He’s in pole position going into the final day. One way or another, some more history will be made tomorrow. See you here! Nighty night!-11: Spieth-8: Kuchar-5: Connelly, Koepka-4: Grace, Matsuyama-3: D Johnson, Stenson, Kim, Cabrera-Bello-2: Fisher, McIlroy, Ramsay, Poulter-1: Fowler, Noren, Bland 7.50pm BST Kuchar leaves his birdie putt out on the left! Spieth did a match-play number on him then. A par, and a marvellous 66, but he’s three adrift again. He’ll replay that missed opportunity over and over in his mind this evening. And tomorrow morning. And on the range early tomorrow afternoon. Jordan Spieth, meanwhile, is a step closer to the third leg of his career grand slam. He’s 23 years old. He is an astonishing force of nature.

Chester Bennington: five of his best Linkin Park performances

From the howls on debut single One Step Closer to the still incendiary vocals of his later years, Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington was one of rock’s most emotionally dextrous frontmenLinkin Park emerged at the tail end of the late 90s’ landfill-grunge period, their crisp and confident melding of rap and metal a world away from the sloppy fuzz-worship of their peers. It was frontman Chester Bennington’s dynamic range that really pushed them ahead of the pack though, and on debut single One Step Closer they proved themselves immediate alpha dogs. Bennington’s brooding, increasingly maddened take on a fractious relationship built up towards the breaking point: a howl of “shut up when I’m talking to you”. The punchy, emotionally wrought middle-eight refrain would quickly become the consistent ace up Bennington’s sleeve. Continue reading...

Chris Froome protects Tour de France lead after Warren Barguil wins stage 18

• Team Sky’s race leader holds off main rivals Bardet and Uran• Froome’s deficit trimmed to 23sec with three stages remainingIf weight of national expectation and volume of media hype counted for anything, Romain Bardet would have dislodged Chris Froome here and won the Tour de France. Instead he finished exhausted, close behind the stage winner, Warren Barguil, after pushing himself rather than Froome to the limit and snatching a second place which is provisional before the time trial on Saturday.Froome is now within an ace of winning a fourth Tour de France. As Bardet attempted to find breath to explain how hard he had tried and what it promised for the future, Froome mounted the finish podium perched on the Col d’Izoard – a panorama of Alpine peaks all around in the crystal clear air – with the look of a man who knew the worst was behind him.
