Load remaining images Over the weekend, Firefly Music Festival returned to The Woodlands, bringing over 140 bands to its nine stages. Firefly sported a diverse range of acts over its four days, tapping The Weeknd, Muse, Twenty One Pilots, Chance the Rapper, Bob Dylan, Flume, Weezer, The Shins, and more to top its massive lineup. Luckily, photographer Sean DiSerio was on site to capture some of the action over the weekend, and you can check out his full gallery below. DeSerio also captured what’s in the running for our favorite crowd photo of all time, so we can all savor the magic that is Firefly Music Festival. Those already looking to the future toward Firefly 2018 got some good news today as well — the music and camping festival will be returning to Dover next year from June 14th through 17th.
by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow â€” A persistent rumor that has been circulating around Wellington lately is the local Walmart Super Center is going to be turned into a regular Wal-Mart Discount Store and that it won’t be open 24 hours of the day.After speaking with Walmart Store Manager Zlatko Djurovic this morning, that rumor IS NOT TRUE!Djurovic said there are no changes on the horizon for the local store.“It does us no good to close off a certain segment of the store,” Djurovic said. “You might as well utilize that space.”Â As far as staying open 24 hours, Djurovic said that too makes little difference to the company’s bottom line.“We have a full staff here already stocking shelves,” Djurovic said. “The only expense is the cashiers and that is a minimal expense.”Wellington Wal-Mart has been part of the business landscape for over 30 years moving from the east side to the west side, where Orscheln’s Store now sits. A Super Center was built on the east side of Wellington and opened in late 2007. It was put on the City of Wellington sales tax roll in January 2013, after the five year incentives with the Neighborhood Revitalization Program ran its course. Close Forgot password?

Its nice to have it there and open just in case you need them.

That way I don’t run into someone who wants to yell at me about the comment section.

Especially since they’ve killed off apple market and a few other businesses. And by the way, that “minimum expense” comment about cashiers is a bit off character. Report Reply 0 replies · active 338 weeks ago +1 Vote up Vote down Harold Gaines · 338 weeks ago As someone who shops in the middle of the night, I know that they only have 1-2 checkers from around 10 PM to around 6 AM. Let’s say that they cost WM $15/hour per checker; that would be about $250/night added cost to stay open. “Minimum expense” seems pretty accurate to me.

New Delhi: Swedish music streaming app Spotify now has 232 million monthly active users (MAUs)globally, a 29 per cent increase year-on-year (YoY), along with 108 million premium subscribers which is also 31 per cent (YoY) growth. The company which entered India in February this year and announced 2 million users in India in April, did not reveal the users’ growth in the country, except saying “our newest market, India, performed well and in line with expectations” and “our consumption time is one of the highest among other players in the country”.

Spotify and Apple are in legal tussle, with Cupertino-based tech iPhone maker saying that Spotify is not paying 30 per cent ‘Apple tax’ on its subscriptions via App Store as claimed but even less than 1 per cent of paid subscribers. In March, Spotify filed an anti-trust complaint against Apple with the European Commission. The tug of war between Spotify and Apple has intensified, with the Swedish music streaming service calling Apple a “monopolist”.

Number of top tier artists (those representing the vast majority of streams) grew another 36 per cent to more than 30,000 (globally).
