Paul Simon announces final dates for Homeward Bound Tour

Paul Simon is bidding farewell to the music industry, and many fans could not be sadder.

To say that Simon is a legend in the industry is a huge understatement. For nearly 61 years, Simon has been an influence on music. He’s captured 16 Grammy’s for both his solo and collaborative work, named one of Rolling Stone’s “100 Greatest Guitarists” of all-time, and even made Time magazine’s list of “100 People Who Shaped the World.”

Even more? Simon was the first artist to receive the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song from the Library of Congress. Few artists have received such high honors, and to make his achievements even more spectacular, Simon has done it in a quiet fashion.

There is nothing quiet, however, about his trusty guitar, which not only was a dominating sound in Simon & Garfunkel but also netted him some of the biggest hits of all time. Now, his guitar will go silent at the end of the Homeward Bound tour, which is being presented by Simon as “a big thank you” to his fans before he hangs up his guitar for good.

The final dates of the tour have recently been released, and here are the lucky cities where fans will be able to see a living legend one more time before he resigns to occasional appearances. Keep in mind that dates and venues are subject to change.

2yo hospitalized as migrants found in UK-bound refrigerated truck in France

Around 7am Saturday, the security services at the Loon-Plage terminal near Dunkirk contacted the regional fire and rescue department after finding 26 migrants, including a toddler, in a refrigerated truck, Europe 1 reports, quoting a statement from the authorities.

The 2-year-old, accompanied by his mother of Iraqi descent, was taken to a hospital in Dunkirk with mild hypothermia.

“The ferry terminal security service contacted emergency services after the discovery of a group of 26 migrants in a refrigerated lorry,” the regional rescue services authority said, as cited by The Local.

On Thursday, seven migrants suffering from hypothermia and dehydration were found in a refrigerated truck in Indre in central France, according to local media. Having reportedly sneaked into Spain, the men of Afghan, Iraqi, and Iranian origin were hospitalized after staying in a trailer, where the temperature does not exceed 10C.

Attempting to reach Britain, migrants frequently climb into vehicles heading there by ferry or the Channel Tunnel, sometimes leading to injuries or even fatalities – not only among those on board, but drivers as well.

Earlier, a British truck driver was attacked by a group of migrants who hit him with a brick and stole his vehicle near Calais, where around 600 migrants are believed to be taking shelter. In June, another driver fell victim to a car accident in coastal France after migrants installed a roadblock on a highway to slow down the UK-bound vehicles so they could break inside.

With migrants aspiring to get to the UK and drivers facing risks, the situation on the British doorstep is exacerbated, as Human Rights Watch reports, by abuse of asylum-seekers by local police. Calais police are said to use pepper spray on both adult and child migrants, destroy their food, water, and sleeping bags, while the authorities turn a blind eye to the abuse, according to the ‘Like Living in Hell’ report.

Tourist blockade? Ukrainians bound for Crimea have to spend hours at own border checkpoints (PHOTOS)

“For unknown reasons travelers have to languish for hours under the scorching sun,” the Crimean Border Guard Service said in a statement on Monday, as distributed by Russian news agencies.

People had to wait some 13 hours on average before passing the Ukrainian checkpoint at Chongar, the statement added, citing comments from holidaymakers. 

The Russian Border Guard Service said it was working normally and there were no queues of cars in front of the Russian checkpoints. Some 24,500 tourists crossed the border, it added.

In the meantime, Ukrainians eager to spend their vacations in Crimea have been uploading photos of the long queues of cars on the Ukrainian border since mid-June.

“We queued for 13 hours,” one person wrote on Instagram, adding a video of rows of cars. One of her followers said that she was in a similar situation, while another added:

“You wouldn’t want any sea [after such delays].”

Вот так мы стояли 13 часов! #дорога на Крым #Чонгар #жизнь #реальность #хочу #обратно

Another person wrote that she had spent hours in the queue and was barely closer to reaching the Ukrainian border.

Some people, however, managed to hold on to their sense of humor. “Chongar. Queue. Happiness,” one person wrote sarcastically.

Ukrainian authorities haven’t released any official statement on the situation. However, Zaur Smirnov, the head of the Crimean State Committee for Inter-Ethnic relations, suggested that the delays were created “artificially” by the Kiev government.

“Kiev has attempted to introduce a blockade of the [Crimean] peninsula, this time a tourist one,” Smirnov said, as cited by RIA Novosti. The Ukrainian border service allegedly got instructions from Kiev to create artificial obstacles for Ukrainian tourists who travel to Crimea, he said. 

“Kiev’s attempts to block its citizens [from entering Crimea] don’t scare us, as Crimea doesn’t depend on Ukrainian tourists.”

Crimea became a part of Russia in March 2014, when over 96 percent of the peninsula’s population voted in favor of the move in a referendum. The decision was prompted by the ouster of the Ukrainian president in a violent coup in Kiev.
