Heeding musicians, New Orleans moves to ban smoking in bars

Yahoo! Music News - Fri, 01/23/2015 - 04:35
By Jonathan Kaminsky NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - The New Orleans City Council voted on Thursday to ban smoking in the city's bars, a move supported by several prominent local musicians who said the issue was for them a matter of workplace health. Most large U.S. cities already have such restrictions in place, anti-smoking advocates said, though smoking is still permitted in bars in cities including Las Vegas, Atlanta and Miami, and across much of the southeastern United States. The measure initially proposed in New Orleans included a ban on smoking in many outdoor areas, including parks and at city-sponsored festivals, but council members removed those restrictions before their unanimous vote to bar people from lighting up in bars and casinos. The measure, which has the support of New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, is expected to take effect in April.

Serbian music stars face sudden tax scrutiny

Yahoo! Music News - Fri, 01/16/2015 - 23:34
By Aleksandar Vasovic BELGRADE (Reuters) - Tax inspectors in Serbia have turned their attention to a parade of local pop and folk music stars summoned to explain their earnings and extravagant lifestyles in the wake of a government pledge to rein in a vast gray economy. For the past week, a succession of singers have been pictured in tabloids turning up at the offices of Serbia's tax authority, feeding speculation about tax evasion in the Serbia's gaudy folk and pop scene. Attention has focused on 26-year-old Sandra Prodanovic, known as Sandra Afrika, who has been pictured in the media posing in front of a white BMW and lounging on a yacht. On Thursday, the Serbian daily Blic quoted unnamed sources as saying Prodanovic, who had a hit in 2012 with "Someone will make me a son tonight", had told tax inspectors she performs for free and that her expensive cars were presents from her boyfriend and grandmother.
