Bruno Mars in Mark Lash

Plus a Rich­mond Hill DJ gets Grammy nod

Richmond Hill Post - - News -

Grammy Award win­ner Bruno Mars rocked an orig­i­nal Mark Lash jew­ellery piece at this year’s 58th an­nual Grammy Awards. The Thorn­hill de­signer cus­tom-made the vin­tage-in­spired gold chain neck­lace that Mars was also seen wear­ing in his “Up­town Funk” video and at the re­cent Su­per Bowl 50 half­time show per­for­mance.

Young ac­tivist Rachel Par­ent gained the proxy to stand in at a Mon­santo share­hold­ers meet­ing where she con­fronted Mon­santo’s CEO Hugh Grant about the dan­gers of their ge­net­i­cally mod­i­fied or­gan­isms (GMOs) and their chem­i­cal her­bi­cide Roundup. The 16-year-old cre­ated a stir with ques­tions about why the com­pany will not pub­lish the feed­ing stud­ies of the an­i­mals that con­sume their GMO-filled crops.

DJ and vinyl record en­thu­si­ast Kevin Howes of Rich­mond Hill earned him­self a Grammy nom­i­na­tion this year, in the cat­e­gory of Best His­tor­i­cal Al­bum, for Na­tive North Amer­ica, Vol. 1. Af­ter driv­ing across Canada in search of ob­scure vinyl records to cre­ate this Grammy-nom­i­nated com­pi­la­tion, Howes re­mas­tered 34 record­ings from 23 dif­fer­ent artists across Canada, in­clud­ing First Na­tions, Métis and Inuit mu­si­cians.
