Feeding off the potent musical energy in the Big Easy air on the second weekend of the annual New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, the band pushed through a second set power outage to deliver a fantastic show.After beginning with “Miss September” and “Demons,” the band went into deep improv mode for a nearly 30-minute “All Four” > “Kerosene” segment. After “In Control” and “A Letter to Seymour,” Michigan-based musician Joshua Davis took the stage to lend electric guitar and vocals to performances of “Walking The Dog” and “Last Winter in the Copper Country.” “Burn Them” followed, before a celebratory cover of the Grateful Dead‘s “One More Saturday Night” sung by Anders Beck brought set one to a close.Set two opened with “Broke Mountain Breakdown,” which saw the band push through a power outage, touching on “Bring Out Your Dead” and “Hit Parade Of Love” without microphones before completing the “Breakdown” and heading into “Ain’t No Bread in the Breadbox” once the power came back on. “The Four,” “Run or Die,” and “Room Without A Roof” followed, before the band closed the set with a cover of Traffic‘s “Light Up or Leave Me Alone.”The band came back for the encore with “Past My Prime,” and after leaving to once-again deafening applause, they returned for a second encore with their fan-favorite cover of Bruce Springsteen‘s “Atlantic City,” which resolved into a “Broke Mountain Breakdown” reprise.As always, you can download full audio of the performance now via LIVEDOWNLOADS.

Biden signs immigration orders as Congress awaits more

first_imgWASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden has signed a second spate of orders to undo his predecessor’s immigration policies, demonstrating the powers of the White House and its limitations without support from Congress. His orders on family separation, border security and legal immigration bring to nine the number of executive actions on immigration during his first two weeks in office. With proposed legislation to give legal status and a path to citizenship to all of the estimated 11 million people in the country who don’t have it, Biden has quickly taken aim at many of former President Donald Trump’s sweeping changes to deter immigration, both legal and illegal.last_img

Fifth annual Run Forrest Run race to support veterans

first_imgThe fifth annual Run Forrest Run 5/10K race to benefit the Gary Sinise Foundation (GSF) will commence Saturday at 9:30 a.m. in front of Hesburgh Library, where 900 American flags will be placed on the grass early Friday morning. The event was started by Lauren McKee, class of 2018, her freshman year at Notre Dame. Senior Nathaniel Hanson, who directed the event this year, said he assisted McKee in organizing the event while he was a member of Air Force ROTC. “Even though I am no longer in the Air Force, it made sense for me to carry over and make sure the event is a success,” Hanson said. NATHANIEL HANSON | The Observer Students, faculty and community members gather before the 2018 Run Forrest Run race in front of Hesburgh Library.The race is supported by community members and volunteers from all three branches of ROTC at Notre Dame — Navy, Army and Air Force. It is the second biggest race on campus after the Holy Half Marathon in April. McKee said they expect between 400 and 500 people by the time registration closes. Participants come from across the United States, the greater South Bend community and the Notre Dame community. It will probably be about two-thirds community members and one-third Notre Dame students, Hanson said. Junior Michael Terranova, who is the assistant director of the event and a member of Navy ROTC, said one participant has dressed up as Forrest Gump every year since the birth of the event. GSF is named after Sinise, who played Lieutenant Dan in “Forrest Gump,” and the foundation supports defenders, veterans, first responders, their families and those in need. The funds raised specifically at the run will benefit the Restoring Independence Supporting Empowerment program which builds custom homes to fit the needs of wounded veterans and their families. “They call these smart homes,” Terranova said. “They make it easier for [veterans] to live.” Donations come from individuals, teams and those participating in a virtual race. Even if people can’t make it to campus, they can sign up and run in their own time “for the real lieutenant Dan’s,” Hanson said. The combined funds raised in the past four years total to $57,000, but this year, Hanson and Terranova said they hope to receive $50,000. The guest speaker for this year’s event is Army major Jeremy Haynes. Haynes was shot four times, including once in his back, while serving in Afghanistan, Hanson said, and Haynes faced a long and painful recovery.“He is a continual testament to the human spirit. He continues to show that it is very possible to defy your doctors if you have the willpower,” Hanson said. Both Hanson and Terranova said the event is important to supporting veterans.“Without events like Run Forrest Run, without the Gary Sinise Foundation, a lot of veterans might find themselves in the position where they don’t have the money to deal with what happened to them during our wars,” Terranova said. “The least we can do is help them in any way possible to thank them for what they did for us and make sure that their quality of life, now that they are back home, is good. I think events like this are important to keep our veterans in the nation’s consciousness and memory.”Hanson said Notre Dame students should come out and run the race.“This is a truly good and admirable cause,” he said. “Thank your veterans for their service.”Tags: 10K race, ROTC, Run Forrest Run, Veteranslast_img read more

Dearth of West Coast Terminal Capacity for U.S. Coal Producers Pinning Hopes on Exports

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享SNL:Western producers looking to export coal through the Pacific Coast are seeing their options dwindle as existing ports reach capacity and hopes for new ones dim.“The West is kind of limited in that you have a couple of ports in California and the main ones in Canada,” said William Wolf, vice president of business and market analysis at John T. Boyd Co. “You can only run so many tons through those facilities at this time.”Ridgway does not see much opportunity for these ports to grow because environmental groups in California would likely put a stop to any plans that would increase coal train traffic.Meanwhile, three proposed projects that could offer West Coast export options have hit major roadblocks. Oakland’s city council voted unanimously in June 2016 to prohibit coal shipments in the city, affecting the planned Oakland Bulk and Oversized Terminal in California, though the developer is suing to overturn the ban. The U.S. Army Corps also stopped the permitting process in May 2016 for the planned Gateway Pacific terminal in Washington state. An outgoing official threw a further obstacle in front of Pacific Gateway when he announced in January the expansion of an aquatic reserve to include the area where the terminal was planned. And in November 2016, an Oregon state agency announced the withdrawal of cases related to the planned Morrow Pacific coal terminal.More ($): Coal miners eyeing Asia market pin hopes on Wash. port as other options dry up Dearth of West Coast Terminal Capacity for U.S. Coal Producers Pinning Hopes on Exportslast_img read more

India’s NTPC plans to add 10GW of solar generation by 2022

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享The Economic Times:State-owned power giant NTPC is planning to add 10GW of solar energy generation capacity by 2022, which entails an investment of around Rs 50,000 crore, to be funded mainly by green bonds, a source has said.At present, NTPC has installed renewable energy capacity of 920MW, which includes mainly solar energy. It has formulated a long-term plan to become a 130GW company by 2032 with 30 percent non-fossil fuel or renewable energy capacity.“The company will complete tendering of 2,300MW of solar energy capacity by the end of this fiscal. Thereafter, it has planned to add 4GW each in 2020-21 and 2021-22.”“The company is open to any borrowing option in the market, which is economical. However, it would mainly rely on green bonds which are offered for pure clean energy projects.

Salvadoran Defense Ministry Will Ask for $33.8 Million for Security

first_imgBy Dialogo May 11, 2011 The Salvadoran Defense Ministry will request a budgetary supplement of $33.8 million U.S. dollars in order to continue guaranteeing support for joint security measures with the National Civil Police (PNC). This was confirmed during the first week in May by the head of the Salvadoran Defense Ministry, Gen. David Munguía Payés, who also indicated that President Mauricio Funes will very soon announce a course correction in the security strategy he has been implementing since the beginning of his term, in June 2009, in cooperation with the PNC and the Army, which is marking the 187th anniversary of its founding this Saturday, 7 May, the date on which Soldier’s Day is celebrated in El Salvador, according to a report in the Salvadoran daily El Mundo [The World]. The Army has carried out that function of support for the police, by presidential order, since 6 November 2009, due to the high crime rates that have affected El Salvador for several months. In May 2010, Funes extended for a year the presence of military personnel in the streets to combat crime, an extension that expired on 6 May; added three thousand soldiers to military forces in twenty-nine areas; and expanded the troops’ activities to “blind spots” or unmonitored border locations, in addition to sending military personnel to some of the country’s prisons. The Salvadoran Armed Forces have over fifteen thousand members, including officers and enlisted personnel. Responsibility for public safety was withdrawn from the military by the peace agreements, but under exceptional circumstances, the president may require them to provide support for this purpose to the PNC, an institution that is independent from the Army and was created, together with other bodies, following the end of twelve years of hostilities, from 1980 to 1992. The nearly 34 million U.S. dollars, Munguía Payés specified, will be used to cover the expenses incurred by the institution since it was designated to carry out public-safety tasks such as surveillance along the borders and in prisons, as well as searching inmates’ visitors. “When we receive a mission that is in addition to the one we have and that implies the incorporation of new elements into the Armed Forces in order to carry out these plans, this implies more resources,” he said in justification. According to the highest-ranking Salvadoran military commander, around 3,500 soldiers have been incorporated into the security plan since 2010, and the money would be used to cover the cost of maintaining those personnel for two years. It would also cover salaries and the cost of food and supplies, such as uniforms. He also said that a meeting has already been held with the treasury minister and that it was the Security Cabinet’s idea to consolidate all the expenses of the PNC, the Public Prosecutor’s Office, and the militia for the next two years.last_img read more
