Museum celebrating 'Big Bang' of country music opens in Virginia

By Verna Gates BRISTOL Va (Reuters) - A museum celebrating 10 days in 1927 that helped introduce the mountain music of Appalachia to mainstream America opened in Virginia on Friday. The Birthplace of Country Music Museum tells the story of record producer Ralph Peer, who offered $50 to "hillbilly" musicians willing to come to a makeshift studio in Bristol, Tennessee, and play into his modern microphone.   The result, which launched the careers of such luminaries as Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family, was dubbed by music historian Nolan Porterfield as "the Big Bang of country music" and hailed by Johnny Cash as the genre's most important moment.

N.Y.'s Met Opera, unions extend talks for 72 hours, lockout delayed

By Jonathan Allen NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York's Metropolitan Opera agreed to extend negotiations with its labor unions for 72 hours, preventing a threatened lockout at the nation's largest performing arts organization, the Met said late on Thursday. The Met Opera also said it had reached new contract agreements with three of the 15 involved labor unions. "We want to work together with union representatives and do everything we can to achieve new contracts, which is why we've agreed to an extension," Met General Manager Peter Gelb said in a statement. The dispute is the most acrimonious at the Met in decades, giving rise to the unusual spectacle of the Met's own musicians criticizing new productions mounted by general manager Peter Gelb as not very good except for the singing and playing.

New York Met Opera proposes federal mediators in bitter labor dispute

By Jonathan Allen NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York's Metropolitan Opera has proposed bringing in a federal mediator to resolve its most bitter labor dispute with musicians and other unionized employees in decades, the company said on Wednesday. The suggestion comes a day before current contracts expire, but will not alter the Met's plans to lock out employees and suspend their health benefits on Friday if new agreements are not reached, the company said. The Met has said its labor force has become too expensive in a time of declining global interest in opera. Peter Gelb, the Met's general manager, said this week that opera could become obsolete "if measures are not taken to make it fit in the 21st-century economy." The mediation proposal was made at a meeting on Wednesday with the Met's chorus, represented by the American Guild of Musical Artists, said Alan Gordon, the union's national executive director.

U.S. Appeals court throws out artist's Obamacare challenge

By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. appeals court on Tuesday dismissed a long-shot challenge to the Obamacare health law brought by an Iowa artist. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit rejected claims made by Matt Sissel, who was backed by the Pacific Legal Foundation, a conservative legal group. Sissel claimed, among other things, that the 2010 law violated a provision of the U.S. Constitution that says any revenue-raising legislation must originate in the House of Representatives, not in the Senate, as Obamacare did. In Tuesday's ruling, the appeals court upheld a lower court decision that dismissed the case.
