Trey Anastasio Band To Perform Entire Spring Tour As The Trey Anastasio Trio

by ,

first_imgToday, Trey Anastasio surprised fans with the announcement that he would conduct his upcoming late-April Trey Anastasio Band tour with a Trey Anastasio Trio lineup featuring himself, drummer Russ Lawton, and bassist Tony Markellis. The decision to change the plans for the eight-date run comes after Monday’s announcement by Anastasio that longtime TAB keyboardist Ray Paczkowski had undergone surgery to remove a tumor from his brain last week, which raised questions about how his absence would be addressed for the upcoming shows.As Trey explains in an announcement post on his Facebook page:As we noted Monday, longtime TAB keyboardist and dear friend Ray Paczkowski is recuperating after having a tumor removed from his brain last week and is expected to make a full recovery.April 17, 2018 marks the 20th anniversary of the first time Trey shared the stage with Tony and Russ as part of the “8 Foot Fluorescent Tubes” concert that took place at the original Higher Ground in Winooski, VT. That show featured the debut of many brand-new songs and the genesis of the first incarnation of TAB. While Ray rests up, we have decided to use this upcoming short tour to celebrate this milestone and play the entire run as a trio for the first time since 1999. We will keep Ray in our hearts and minds as he recovers over the next few months and look forward to the full TAB lineup returning to the road soon.Refunds are available up until April 10th at the original point of purchase for fans who do not want to attend the shows as Trey Anastasio Trio.[Photo: Trey Anastasio Facebook]You can see a full list of upcoming Trey Anastasio Trio shows, or grab your tickets via Trey’s website.Following the spring run and a pair of dates at Levitate Music Festival in July, Trey’s other band, Phish, will hit the road for their nationwide summer tour.

Her wheels are always turning

by ,

first_imgThis is one in a series of profiles showcasing some of Harvard’s stellar graduates.For busy bicyclist and blogger Alice Anne Brown, MUP ’13, the wheels are always turning. They turn in her mind at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design (GSD), where for two years she has studied urban planning — especially how bicycles can make cities more livable, lovable, and viable.And the wheels turn for Brown on the road, where she logs five to 20 miles a day on her one-speed Westport cruiser. It has fat wheels, pedal brakes, a single gear, and a seat that makes her sit up straight, all the better to just look around. (For weekend distance rides, she keeps a Specialized Dolce.) “I’m a three-city girl,” said Brown, whose home is in Somerville, school is in Cambridge, and work is in Boston (as a project manager at Boston Bikes, a citywide cycling initiative).She was born in Detroit, the Motor City, but her core passion revolves around how pedal power could be at the heart of a safe, practical, and low-impact urban life. Brown has ridden the bike lanes in many of the 22 countries she’s visited, though two years ago she was obliged to climb Mount Kilimanjaro on foot.“There is no better way to really see a place,” she said of biking. Her childhood seemed to be on wheels too, and rolled through Michigan to Maryland and back to Ohio for her father’s engineering career. Mostly, she grew up in the village of Baltimore, Ohio, where home was on five acres with a pond. She swam, ice skated, played the flute, and dabbled in 4H. (“I was a disaster at cooking and sewing,” she said.) Her younger brother took to country life, but “I have searched for cities ever since,” said Brown.At Ohio State University, Brown studied physics, then switched to mathematics. (She also rowed crew and played ice hockey.) As an undergraduate senator, Brown sat on a town-gown planning board that piqued her interest in how cities worked, including streetlight audits and regulations for commercial frontage. In 2003, armed with dual degrees in math and philosophy, Brown moved to the Bronx, where for five years she taught math to sixth- and eighth-graders.Even when teaching, Brown felt intimations of the career she ultimately would embrace: planning that would make the world’s cities greener. She spent many hours in New York’s Central Park, a place that she said feels like her real home. In a life-changing experience, Brown led her class through a unit on sustainability, including a look at the “No Impact Man” lifestyle. For a week, she rode her bike everywhere.When she moved to Ethiopia in 2008 for a three-year teaching job in Addis Ababa, her bike came with her, as did her interest in public spaces. Brown surveyed city parks in the capital. She also studied the ubiquitous and cheap 14-passenger minivans that provide informal public transport in much of East Africa. She realized that her interests had converged into a desire to study urban planning.“I wanted to change things,” said Brown, who applied to the GSD, was admitted, and started in September 2011.What’s next? “I could go anywhere,” said Brown. She has new skills at planning and assessment and a vision of cities where streets are designed for more than cars. Still, she added, “I don’t want to be just the bike girl.”last_img read more

by ,

first_imgIt’s a brand new year, and the first Trail Mix of 2014 hits right smack dab in the middle of a polar vortex.  Now, for some, that might be cause for panic, but with 16 brand new tracks waiting, those in the know do know that Trail Mix is just the recipe for warming up on a frigid winter day.Kicking off this January mix is one of my favorite bands. Railroad Earth, a stalwart of the folk/jam scene for over a decade, welcome 2014 with the release of Last Of The Outlaws. Recorded in the band’s native New Jersey, this new record continues Railroad Earth’s tradition of producing evocatively written and instrumentally astounding folk rock.One of the coolest stories I have heard is that of Leo Welch.  Trail Mix is thrilled to have a cut from his new record, Sabougla Voices, featured this month. Leo is a youngish 81-years-old and this is his debut recording. Stay tuned to the Trail Mix blog for more on this later this week.From time to time, Trail Mix gets to include tracks from some true heavyweights. Take a listen to new tunes from The Pixies and Los Lonely Boys.Trail Mix is happy to welcome some first time artists to the mix. Check out new tracks from Iain Matthews, Blackie & The Rodeo Kings, Lone Justice, Sleepy Sun, The Railsplitters, Annie Ford Band, The Blushin’ Roulettes, Mode Moderne, The Sacred Shakers, and Elizabeth & The Catapult. As always, one of the best things about Trail Mix is discovering new artists. All of these bands are tremendous.This month’s mix also features two of our favorite regional artists. We are featuring “50 Miles of Elbow Room,” from Travis Book of The Infamous Stringdusters, which comes off his brand new solo debut, Alice. The mix also has the most aptly titled song for this blustery weather, “Winter Is Coming,” by our good friends from the Shenandoah Valley, The Steel Wheels.We hope your new year has started in fantastic fashion and with one simple resolution – share Trail Mix more!  Please tell a friend about the mix or one of the many great artists featured this month.  Stream and download often.  And, of course, get out and purchase a disc or two from one of these great artists.

first_imgAIM quoted oil and gas investment company MX Oil is planning a name change following a recent investment by a UAE shaikh. The company is also looking to consolidate its share capital in a push to lift its share price.OML 113 containing the Aje field in which MX Oil owns a share; Source: PanoroIn a circular to shareholders on Wednesday, MX Oil, which owns a share in the oil-producing Aje offshore oil field in Nigeria, said that a resolution would be placed before its shareholders at the next general meeting to vote on a name change from MX Oil to ADM Energy plc.“The Company has been considering a change of name for some time. The rationale for the name change to ADM Energy plc follows the recent strategic investment by Shaikh Ahmed Bin Dalmook Al Maktoum. The Company’s strategic investor has an extensive network of influential contacts within the oil and gas industry and the Board regards his support for the Company as an important opportunity.”Shaikh Ahmed Bin Dalmook Al Maktoum in April acquired 1,335,000,000 MX Oil shares and is now the company’s largest shareholder with 29.86% of issued share capital.Subject to shareholder approval, once the company has formally changed its name, the company will also change its ticker from MXO to ADME.Shareholders will also vote on, among others, a resolution to consolidate share capital of the company.“It is expected that, immediately prior to the General Meeting, the Company will have 4,471,349,664 Existing Ordinary Shares in issue… The Directors consider that it is in the best interests of the Company’s long term development as a public quoted company to have a more manageable number of issued ordinary shares and to have a higher share price.”Accordingly, it is proposed that the Company’s share capital be reorganized such that every 100 Existing Ordinary Shares be consolidated into 1 new ordinary share of 1 pence. The MX Oil general meeting will be held on June 7 in London.Offshore Energy Today StaffSpotted a typo?

School stand-downs for fighting and assault hit 11-year peak

by ,

first_imgNZ Herald 29 August 2018Family First Comment: As predicted. Nobody should be surprised by these stats – and they will only get worse as we promote children ‘rights’, undermine the authority of parents, teachers & police, and demonise ‘discipline’.“The main cause is physical assaults on other students, which have jumped from 4.9 stand-downs for every 1000 students in 2015 to 7.2 per 1000 last year, the highest rate since 2006.More students are being stood down or kicked out of schools for fighting and assault, as schools struggle to cope with children of P-addicted parents and social problems like fetal alcohol syndrome.An expert also warns that half of all students being expelled or excluded from school are on the autism spectrum, and noisy multi-teacher classrooms might be partly to blame.After falling for a decade up to 2015, the rates of stand-downs, suspensions and exclusions from schools have all risen again in each of the past two years.The main cause is physical assaults on other students, which have jumped from 4.9 stand-downs for every 1000 students in 2015 to 7.2 per 1000 last year, the highest rate since 2006.Post Primary Teachers Association president Jack Boyle said violence and fighting which might once have been hidden, such as a brawl last week at Papakura’s Rosehill College, were now being posted on social media where school principals could not ignore them.Principals’ Federation president Whetu Cormick said principals were being forced to stand down or excluded students because they were not getting the funds they needed to employ extra teacher aides, psychologists and other specialists.READ MORE: https://www.nzherald.co.nz/index.cfm?objectid=12114501&ref=twitterlast_img read more
