Part & Parcel Host Guest-Filled Corduroy Classic Ft. Members Of Railroad Earth, Kitchen Dwellers, & More [Photos]

first_imgIn 2016, up-and-coming bluegrass act Part & Parcel thought it would be fun to get some local Colorado-based artists together and host a charitable night of musical collaborations, during a night dubbed the “Corduroy Classic.” On Friday night, Denver, CO’s Cervantes’ Other Side hosted the third annual Corduroy Classic, which saw performances from host band Part & Parcel, in addition to Railroad Earth’s Tim Carbone, Emily Clark, members of the Kitchen Dwellers, Sweet Lillies, Tenth Mountain Division, Analog Son, and the Wilkolak Brothers. Local Colorado band Liver Down By The River handled the evening’s opening duties.Part & Parcel’s third annual Corduroy Classic helped raise money on behalf of RIP Medical Debt. The nonprofit makes it easy for donors to make an impactful difference in the lives of those struggling with medical debt. Due to the fact that they are able to purchase debt for pennies on the dollar, RIP Medical Debt allows donors to maximize the value of their contribution. For every $1,000 Part & Parcel raised, RIP Medical Debt will be able to eliminate nearly $10,000 worth of medical debt.Following a set of Part & Parcel’s original tunes, the five-piece opened up their collaborative “Corduroy Classic” set with a cover of Pink Floyd’s “In The Flesh?”, as Tenth Mountain Division’s Campbell Thomas lent a helping hand on keyboards. Up next was a take on Sturgill Simpson’s “Keep It Between The Lines”, which included Thomas and bandmate Andrew Cooney, as well Matt Wilkolak, Mark Wilkolak, and Mama Magnolia’s Alex Cazet on horns.Part & Parcel continued with their spot-on song selection, delivering a cover of Cake’s “Love You Madly”, with Emily Clark leading the way on vocals. The five-piece then invited up the Sweet Lillies’ Becca Bisque for “Waiting For A Superman”, before the Kitchen Dwellers’ Shawn Swain joined on a cover of Modest Mouse’s “Paper Thin Walls”. Railroad Earth’s Tim Carbone joined the party for “Get No Better”, and stayed onstage to help with “Hammer and Nails”, “New Speedway Boogie”, and “Canned Heat”. Part & Parcel brought the collaborative set to a close with Little Feat’s “On Your Way Down” into the Talking Heads’ “Girlfriend Is Better”. The band came back out to encore a cover of Tyler Childers’ “Whitehouse Road”, before ending the evening with the Grateful Dead’s “And We Bid You Goodnight”.Luckily, photographer Alan Westman was there to capture mesmerizing images of Part & Parcel’s Corduroy Classic.

Dangerous pathogen research should be stopped — for good

first_imgResearch on extremely dangerous pathogens — on “pause” in the U.S. as scientific panels consider whether or not to continue federal funding for such work — should be stopped altogether, says Marc Lipsitch, professor of epidemiology and director of the Center for Communicable Disease Dynamics at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.Research on so-called potential pandemic pathogens (PPPs) is “exceptionally risky and has little public health benefit,” Lipsitch wrote in a January 20, 2015 article in Scientific American. PPPs are virus strains for which we have no natural immunity and no vaccines. If such strains are accidentally released it could cause “a global catastrophe” claiming millions of lives, Lipsitch said.Before extremely risky research is allowed to continue, “objective, credible, disinterested and quantitative risk-benefit analysis is needed,” Lipsitch wrote.

Glee Makes the Move to New York for the Rest of Season Five

first_img It was previously reported that after the musical comedy celebrates its 100th episode that will feature Gwyneth Paltrow, Kristin Chenoweth, and most of the original cast, the show would do several episodes in New York City focusing on Rachel (Lea Michele), Blaine (Darren Criss), Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Sam (Chord Overstreet). Kristin Chenoweth Star Files With the change of scenery Glee will get some cast revamps but details are still unclear. “Some are going to be graduating and moving; creatively, it would be ridiculous that everybody moves to New York,” Reilly said. “There will be some that will graduate and move on and they’ll arc back in when we do special episodes. They’ll always be a part of it… But for this season, there will be a graduation, several of the cast members will move on and a few others will go to New York.” Darren Crisscenter_img Lea Michele View Comments Bye bye McKinley High, hello Broadway! Glee is set to film the remainder of season five in New York, according to Entertainment Weekly. At a Television Critics Association panel on January 13, Fox entertainment chair Kevin Reilly confirmed the long-rumored plans that the rest of this season will be set entirely in the Big Apple.last_img read more

Analysts doubt business value of Zinke’s military base plan for coal exports

first_imgAnalysts doubt business value of Zinke’s military base plan for coal exports FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享S&P Global Market Intelligence ($):A proposal being considered by the Trump administration to use U.S. West Coast military installations for exporting coal and liquefied natural gas would face significant bureaucratic, economic and national security obstacles before it could become a reality. Even if it cleared those obstacles, the proposal would likely fail in its aim to circumvent environmental opposition in Western states, according to numerous experts.“It doesn’t seem to make sense from a business perspective, from a permitting perspective, and from a national security perspective,” said Tom Hicks, a former acting undersecretary of the U.S. Navy who is now a principal at the Mabus Group, a firm that consults on matters including energy. “… You just wouldn’t do it for all kinds of reasons.”U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke described the proposal in a recent interview with the Associated Press as a way to advance national security by boosting exports of U.S. fuels to Asian markets.However, a move to site export facilities on military bases would require government agencies and developers to address security and safety concerns, including concentrations of people, the presence of ammunition depots, and critical infrastructure and assets such as nuclear-powered aircraft carriers. Experts were also skeptical about how much red tape the idea would actually cut, because developing export facilities would still require state and federal approvals that opponents could contest.“If you are looking at exports off the West Coast, whether it’s LNG or coal or oil or any other energy commodity, you are just going to get resistance from the local population,” Bob Ineson, executive director of global LNG research at IHS Markit, said about the Trump administration proposal. “And I’m not sure that using a federal site is going to change that. You’ve still got to go through the approval process. You’ve still got to get rail or pipe in there.”More ($): Proposal to export gas, coal from US military bases faces major obstacleslast_img read more

Antique execs back anti-terrorism bill

first_imgThe resolution stated: “Ang local na pamahalaan ng Antique ay lubos na sumusuporta sa panukalang batas na Anti-Terrorism Act of 2020 para matugunan at masugpo ang matagal ng paghihimagsik at paghahasik ng karahasan ng terrorismo. Ito ay nagdudulot ng malaking problema na kung saan ang karapatang indibiwal ay naisasangwalang bahala at naisasakripisyo sa kadahilanan ang mananaig ay ang ipinaglalaban at pansriling kapakanan ng mga terorista.” The bill carries provisions imposing life imprisonment without parole on those who will participate in the planning, training, preparation, and facilitation of a terrorist act; possess objects connected with the preparation for the commission of terrorism; or collect or make documents connected with the preparation of terrorism. ILOILO City – Local chief executives in Antique province have expressed support for House Bill 6875, or the Anti-Terrorism Act of 2020. Pancito said the support of the local government units (LGUs) for the bill shows they want to end terrorists’ activities in their respective areas.   In Iloilo province, only the municipality of Janiuay has expressed support for the bill. It also calls for 12 years imprisonment to persons who shall threaten to commit terrorism and those who will propose any terroristic acts or incite others to commit terrorism. The people have nothing to fear from this bill. It is only the terrorists and their supporters who should fear it,” says Philippine Army’s 3rd Infantry Division spokesperson Major Cenon Pancito III. PIA “We are happy that the LGUs expressed their support. We in the army and other law enforcement service firmly believe that this bill can help us in the performance of our duties maintaining the whole 3ID area of responsibility. Anything that will be accorded to help us do our job will be much appreciated,” said Pancito. Gov. Rhodora Cadiao and all the 18 mayors of Antique passed a resolution though their Provincial Peace and Order Council to express their full support for bill that is now in the hands of President Rodrigo Duterte for a review, said Major Cenon Pancito III, spokesperson of the Philippine Army’s 3rd Infantry Division (3ID). Kung ninanais natin ang isang bansang maunlad, ito na ang panahon upang magkaroon ng mabisang panangga sa kriminalidad, terrorismo, droga, at korapsyon,” it added. “The people have nothing to fear from this bill.
