  • Bob Weir Promises New, Original Dead & Company Material In Guitar World Cover Story

    first_imgIt’s an exciting time for Bob Weir, as he’s just one day away from debuting his new Blue Mountain band with a brief Campfire Tour. Of course, one of the biggest stories of this year is Dead & Company, who treated Grateful Dead fans to an incredible summer’s worth of music. With Weir new supporting his solo album and John Mayer working on a solo album of his own, fans are wondering what the future holds for Dead & Company.Fortunately, Weir spoke at length about Dead & Co in a new interview with Guitar World. Read Weir’s take on the band below:“We’re trying to be ourselves and be unique. The material itself is “classic” now, but it’s drawn from all our sources – all the stuff that we listened to and grew up on. We extrapolated that all out into the music of the Grateful Dead, but we never stopped listening to stuff and never stopped having new thoughts about where to take the material and how to interpret it. So even within the Grateful Dead, the music was never, ever static.Now we have an ensemble with three original -or virtually original – members of the Grateful Dead, one guy who’s played with us for years (Jeff Chimenti) and two guys who are virtually new to the material. They have their own set of roots and influences and ideas and we need to observe that in the band and then work with it. They’re not supposed to just be mimicking parts.”When asked about the band’s plans to write material, Weir was very enthusiastic. “Oh yeah! And I very much look forward to it,” he said, and he followed that up by saying that he “would think” the band will release a new recording in the future. We can’t wait!The full story can be found in Guitar World, so be sure to pick up a copy.last_img read more

  • Professor joins Arctic commission

    first_imgPresident Barack Obama has appointed James J. McCarthy, Alexander Agassiz Professor of Biological Oceanography in the Museum of Comparative Zoology, to the U.S. Arctic Research Commission (USARC). McCarthy joins the Honorable Edward Saggan Itta of Alaska as the only two new appointments to the independent federal agency.“James McCarthy has been recognized internationally for his fundamental contributions to oceanography and Arctic science,” said Fran Ulmer, current chair of the USARC. “I am pleased that the president has appointed two extremely well-qualified individuals to the commission. Both gentlemen will undoubtedly bring great expertise and valuable perspectives to our work.”“No place on Earth is changing faster than the Arctic,” McCarthy said. “How Arctic warming affects weather in adjacent regions across North America and Eurasia is an important and increasingly timely research question. Summer sea ice is melting faster than could have been expected only a few years ago, with new records set just this year, and without summer sea ice the Arctic ecosystem would be radically different. Coincident with, and partly due to, these changes in Arctic conditions, there are many new initiatives to develop commerce in this region. I look forward to joining this commission and participating in discussions about the research that will help to formulate wise uses of the Arctic.”The USARC advises the president and Congress on domestic and international Arctic research through recommendations and reports. The commission releases a biennial “Goals and Objectives for Arctic Research” report for the nation’s Arctic research program, and the goals are adopted by the Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee, which develops the United States’ five-year Arctic Research Plan.last_img read more

  • AAA Warns Motorists To Be Extra Cautious As Deer Hunting Season Begins

    first_imgShare:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window) Stock Image.JAMESTOWN – As the regular season of deer hunting begins today, AAA is warning motorists across Western New York to buckle up and be extra cautious on the roads. AAA says hunting will stir the deer population, which is already active due to mating season. They say their analysis of crash data statewide found that October, November, and December are by far the peak months for animal crashes, notably deer, with November typically the most active month.There were 36,445 animal-related crashes in the state in 2019, an increase of 10% from the previous year and by far the most in the past decade. Motorists should be especially vigilant while driving in the dark, as deer crashes often occur outside daylight hours. Most crashes occur in the two hours before sunrise and after sunset each day.AAA offers the following tips for avoiding or mitigating deer crashes: Scan the shoulders of the road in front of you. Deer may dash out from the shoulder or wooded areas adjacent to the road. They often travel in herds.Follow the speed limit. Lower speed will give you more time to respond to unexpected wildlife movements.If a collision is unavoidable, apply the brakes firmly and remain in your lane. Swerving sharply to avoid an animal can often cause a more serious crash.last_img read more

  • International Ag Day

    first_imgNo other commodity represents Georgia agriculture better than the humble peanut. Most Georgians know that Georgia grown peanuts are in most jars of peanut butter in the United States. But many may not know that the protein-packed nut has a life-saving impact at an international level.“Peanuts are truly impacting lives around the world,” Sally Wells, logistic manager for Birdsong Peanuts, told a crowd of University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences students this month. “And you have that opportunity, too, no matter what course of study you choose. Because it’s about being open to the possibilities.” As part of the college’s 2014 International Agriculture Day celebration, Wells told students how she and the U.S. peanut industry became involved in international hunger relief efforts — from their support of therapeutic foods for malnourished children to the construction of processing plants and farmer training programs in developing nations. Her message was simple: Students may start their careers in Georgia, but they will never know where those careers will take them or how they can affect the world. About 30 percent of CAES students study abroad while at UGA, and the college is actively working to increase that percentage through travel scholarships and assistantships. Each year, students and faculty in the university’s college of agriculture celebrate another year of global outreach and education at International Ag Day. Developing a comfort level with working and traveling abroad is becoming necessary for a successful career, said J. Scott Angle, dean of the college, at this year’s celebration. “Agriculture and environmental work — these are all international businesses now,” he said. “If you’re not comfortable with working with people from around the world, and you’re not comfortable working with people who are different than you, who have different cultures, different laws and different ways of doing business — you’re going to be at a real disadvantage. As CAES students, you all have understood that. That’s why you’ve been doing what you’ve been doing.” The college has made many strides in increasing its international engagement and has become one of the leading colleges of agriculture in international education, outreach and research programs, he added. Angle credited a lot of that progress to the work of recently retired UGA CAES Office of Global Programs Director Edward T. Kanemasu. In recognition of his decades of service, building relationships and managing the college’s international research, outreach and educational projects, Angle announced the creation of the Edward T. Kanemasu Global Engagement Award for international student travel and education. “On behalf of me and the college, thank you for what you have done,” Angle said. “The college’s students have benefitted, the faculty have benefitted, but just as important, the entire state has benefitted from you bringing the world to Georgia.” Amrit Bart, who took over Kanemasu’s postion at the beginning of the year, told the crowd that the office of global programs hopes to build on the college’s reputation as an international institution and work to further expand its reach. “I’m looking forward to seeing that our international programs make it to a new height, where other universities look to us for innovation,” he said.

  • Kentucky coal mining jobs continue to decline

    first_imgKentucky coal mining jobs continue to decline FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Lexington Herald-Leader:Two years since Donald Trump carried every Kentucky coal county by whopping margins after promising miners would go back to work if he became president, the state has fewer coal jobs.Coal employment averaged 6,550 in Kentucky in the first quarter of 2017 when Trump was sworn in, according to the state Energy and Environment Cabinet. The estimated average in the July-through-September quarter this year was 6,381, according to a cabinet report released this week.Of those jobs, 3,851 were in Eastern Kentucky and 2,530 were in the state’s western coalfield. Both regions had fewer jobs than in early 2017.The number of coal jobs varies from quarter to quarter in Kentucky and has been higher at times since Trump took office. The picture is mixed among counties, with some having more jobs and others less than when Trump took office. But overall, the numbers show there has been no sustained increase in coal employment in the state. Coal jobs in Kentucky topped 18,000 in 2011.Nationally, there were about 1,900 more coal jobs In October than when Trump took office, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. However, the estimated national total of 52,600 coal jobs in October was far below the most recent peak of nearly 90,000 in late 2011.More: Trump promised to put coal miners back to work.

  • Sections to advance legislative positions

    first_img March 15, 2006 Regular News Sections to advance legislative positions Sections to advance legislative positions The Bar Board of Governors authorized several last minute legislative positions for a variety of Bar sections at its February 17 meeting in Tallahassee. Withdrawn from the list was a request from the Public Interest Law Section to support legislation that would allow gay foster parents to adopt their foster children if a judge found it was in the child’s best interest. A bill to do that, SB 172, was heard three days before the board meeting in the Senate Children and Families Committee but tabled when it became apparent the bill did not have the votes to pass. The request from PILS may come back to the board at its April 7 meeting. The board did authorize another PILS legislative position to support legislation to assure that state funding, resources, and policies are directed to provide adequate housing for extremely low-income persons, including persons with special needs. Under Bar rules and policies, sections, which have voluntary membership, are given wide latitude on lobbying. Their positions must not conflict with a Bar position, although they may conflict with the positions of other sections. A section position must also not cause deep philosophical and emotional divisions among Bar members. Following are the section legislative activities authorized by the board: Real Property, Probate and Trust Law Section: • Supports legislation to amend §734.101 F.S. so that the procedural and timing provisions under §734.101 F.S. are consistent with §655.936 F.S. • Supports legislation to amend §731.110 F.S. to statutorily require that a will not be admitted to probate or a personal representative appointed if a caveat has been filed by an interested person other than a creditor until that person is served by formal notice as required by the Florida Probate Rules. Business Law Section: • Supports the passage of Revised Article I of the Uniform Commercial Code, as developed by the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws (NCCULS), with the exception of s. 1-301 re choice of laws, with an effective date of “upon becoming law.” • Supports passage of a Revised Model Trademark Act, Ch. 495, Florida Statutes. Tax Law Section: • Supports the Florida Citrus Mutual efforts to amend the Internal Revenue Code and changes to Sections 1033, 1301, and 1302 to allow for compensation for tree replacement and compensation for lost income. Family Law Section: • Supports 2006 Senate Bill 408 amending Florida Statutes Chapter 63 on Adoption. • Supports the amendment of Florida Statutes 61.08 and 61.14 to fix certain “glitches” created by the 2005 amendment of the Florida Statutes which provided for the termination or modification of alimony based upon a finding that a de facto marriage occurred. • Supports amendment to Florida Statutes section 61.13(1)(a)(1), (2), and (3) to require that the trial court set forth in every order establishing or modifying child support a schedule containing specific findings designating the child support award for multiple children based upon current net income, so that as each child attains the age of majority or otherwise emancipates, the aggregate number of remaining minor children for whom child support is being paid is accordingly reduced, to the appropriate child support amount as set forth on the schedule, until such time as the total child support obligation is extinguished. • Supports an amendment to Florida Statutes 61.14 to include subparagraphs (1)(a)1, (2), (3) (a) and (b), as well as (4) to enable a court to temporarily reduce support under certain defined circumstances post-judgment. • Supports an amendment to Florida Statutes section 61.30(2) (b) to include subparagraphs 1, 2, 3, and 4 which define the criteria imputation of income for child support calculation purposes under the statutory child support guidelines; assigns the evidentiary burden to the party seeking to impute the income; and finally, creates a rebuttable presumption pertaining to imputation of the minimum wage. • Supports the amendment to Florida Statutes section 61.30 (16) to adjust the child support statutory guidelines no less than every 3 years to ensure that Federal Poverty Guidelines are properly adjusted within those statutory guidelines. • Supports the creation of a remedy to set aside a determination of paternity for the express purpose for terminating prospective court ordered child support under certain defined circumstances. • Supports the amendment of Florida Statutes Chapter 61 to include a section modeled, in part, on the Uniform Premarital Agreement Act. • Supports 2006 Senate Bill 182-C2 on Temporary Custody. Elder Law Section: • Supports SB 472 (2006) regarding Florida’s Guardianship law as originally filed on 10/25/05, with two exceptions: (1) the proposed amendments to §744.441(19), Florida Statutes; and (2) the proposed amendments to §744.474(20) Florida Statutes. • Supports creating Chapter 736, Florida Statutes, to codify the law of trusts and makes conforming revisions to other Florida Statutes.last_img read more
