The band had just killed it. Absolutely killed it. Burned the stage down, rebuilt it, and then burned it down again. That set was one of the most amazing hours of music I have ever experienced. Cadillac Sky was on fire. Then, just a couple of months later, Simpson left the band and soon thereafter Cadillac Sky was no more.This month’s Trail Mix signals Bryan Simpson’s return. We lead off our March mix with “Mercy Please,” the brand new track from Simpson’s new project, The Whistles & The Bells. Simpson refers to the new record, which releases on March 4th, as a “personal earthquake” that chronicles his spiritual reawakening. It is a powerful return for one of Nashville’s best songwriters. Be sure to check out Jedd’s interview with Simpson in the magazine this month, too.Also featured this month are some heavy hitters. The Hold Steady, one of the decades best buzz rockers, and Built To Spill, long time indie faves, share tunes.

He was then taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.Investigators determined that Balboa showed signs of intoxication, police said.Homicide Squad detectives charged Balboa with vehicular manslaughter, operating a vessel while intoxicated and operating an unregistered vessel.He will be arraigned Monday at First District Court in Hempstead.
When federal policymakers killed banks’ ability to make government-backed student loans, David Bergeron should have been celebrating. A career official at the U.S. Department of Education, he had favored the move for years; it would save the government money, he reasoned, and make it better able to help distressed student borrowers.But when it actually happened in 2010, he wasn’t so sure. With the move, his agency instantly became the nation’s biggest lender to college students. And in his decades of federal service, he’d arrived at the view that when the government gets the chance to profit from something, it takes maximum advantage. It was only a matter of time, he feared, before that happened to student loans.Seven years later—with more than 1 million former students defaulting on government-backed loans every year and with his former agency pulling the plug on a partnership with the consumer bureau tasked with protecting them—his fears could soon be realized. 6SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading »
Oct 25, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – Researchers from the University of Georgia report that wood ducks and laughing gulls are highly susceptible to H5N1 avian influenza, which suggests those two species could be sensitive indicators of the virus’s presence in wild birds.In a lab, the researchers exposed six species of wild birds—five duck species and laughing gulls—to the lethal Asian H5N1 virus. All the birds became infected, but only the wood ducks and laughing gulls became ill or died, according to their report in the November issue of Emerging Infectious Diseases.The findings come amid this year’s greatly expanded federal and state program to look for H5N1 avian flu in wild birds in the United States. The deadly Asian strain of H5N1 has not yet been found in North America, but a mild “North American” strain of H5N1 has been found in wild birds in several states.”If you’re looking for highly pathogenic H5N1 in wild birds, it would really pay to investigate any wood duck deaths because they seem to be highly susceptible,” David Stallknecht, a study coauthor, commented in a University of Georgia news release.Besides wood ducks, the ducks used in the study were mallards, Northern pintails, blue-winged teal, and redheads. Those species are the most likely to bring H5N1 to North America, given their behavior and habitat use, lead author Dr. Justin Brown commented in the news release.The researchers found that the birds studied had more virus in their mouth and throat secretions than in feces. In contrast, said Stallknecht, birds infected with low-pathogenic avian flu viruses shed more virus in their feces, according to the news release.In other avian flu developments, David Nabarro, the United Nations’ senior coordinator for avian and human influenza, said H5N1 is likely to remain a major animal health problem for 5 to 10 more years, according to an Oct 23 UN news release.”We think it’s going to stay that way for five years [or] perhaps 10 years to come because the virus is highly pathogenic yet at the same time can seem to survive in certain communities of birds without symptoms . . . and secondly it does seem to be spread by a combination of wild birds and trade,” Nabarro said.Elsewhere, H5 and N1 avian flu viral proteins were found recently in a green-winged teal in Michigan, but the finding did not signal the lethal Asian type of H5N1, US officials announced Oct 20.The findings were in one of 51 samples collected from a number of bird species Oct 15 in Tuscola County, Michigan, as part of the expanded wild-bird monitoring program by federal and state agencies. In a news release, the US Department of Agriculture said the finding could indicate two different flu viruses, one containing H5 and the other N1. Another possibility is an infection with the low-pathogenic North American strain of H5N1, which has been found in wild birds elsewhere in Michigan and in Illinois, Maryland, and Pennsylvania in recent months.Further testing under way at the USDA national lab in Ames, Iowa, will clarify the findings within 2 to 3 weeks, the agency said.In other recent news about avian flu in birds:In an effort to stop avian flu outbreaks, Indonesian officials said they plan to bar people in major cities from keeping free-roaming poultry, according to an Oct 20 Agence France-Presse report. The health minister said the ban could be modeled on similar laws in Thailand and Hong Kong. No date was set for imposing it.In China, 42.6 million domestic birds in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region have been vaccinated against avian flu since an outbreak last month, the newspaper People’s Daily reported Oct 22.See also:Emerging Infectious Diseases report on wild birds’ susceptibility to H5N1http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/EID/vol12no11/06-0652.htmUniversity of Georgia news release about studyhttp://www.uga.edu/news/artman/publish/061023_BirdFlu.shtmlUN news release reporting Nabarro’s commentshttp://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?NewsID=20347&Cr=bird&Cr1=flu#Oct 20 USDA news release on avian flu testing of birds in Michigan

Image source: RedwiseThe two self-propelled cutter suction dredgers, HUTA 12 (built by Royal IHC in 2014) and HUTA 14 (built 1986 by Orenstein & Koppel), were recently delivered by Redwise Maritime Services BV from King Abdullah Port to Ras al-Khair, Redwise said in its latest release. “Neither of the dredgers was new to Redwise, having delivered the HUTA 12 on her maiden voyage from her builders Royal IHC to her first working site at King Abdullah Port or the HUTA 14 we need to go much longer back in history, with the delivery voyage under own power from Amsterdam to Hong Kong in 1988,” the company said.According to Redwise, the HUTA 14 achieved a substantial higher speed during transit, not unpleasant passing the High Risk Area in the Indian Ocean.In a cooperation with HUTA, the dredgers were made ready for their passages, whereby Redwise provided the management of the voyages, masters, deck officers and senior engineers from Redwise own resources, together with the security arrangement, vessel hardening and reporting.
Norwegian authorities have approved the application for the start-up of the Oda field located in the North Sea, offshore Norway. Operator Spirit Energy expects to start-up in February/March 2019.Other partners in the project are Aker BP, Faroe Petroleum, and Suncor Energy.Total investments for the development are estimated at NOK 5.5 billion ($640.1 million), the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) said on Monday.Oda was discovered in 2011 and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in May 2017. Estimated reserves in the Oda field are 5.2 million standard cubic meters of oil equivalents (32.7 million bbls), of which 5 million Sm3 (34.5 million bbls) are oil.Oda will be developed with a subsea facility including two production wells tied-back to the Ula field and one injection well for pressure support.The produced gas will be sold to the Ula licensees for use as injection gas for alternating water and gas injection (WAG) on the Ula field. The oil will be exported through Ula’s export pipeline via the Ekofisk field to the Teesside terminal in the UK. The seawater that will be used for water injection for pressure support on Oda will be delivered from the Ula platform.Norway’s offshore safety watchdog, the Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA), has also given its consent to Spirit Energy to use the facilities on the Oda field. Namely, an operator must gain consent from the PSA at various milestones, including prior to a facility, or parts thereof, being put into use.
ILOILO – To protect, conserve and preserve the environment in the face of climate change, the provincial government launched yesterday “Tanum Iloilo” (Plant Iloilo). During the launch, the governor turned over Iloilo tree (Aglaia argentea) seedlings to partner agencies like the department of Environment and Natural Resources, Education, and of Social Welfare and Development, among others. The launching, timed with the Arbor Day celebration, was spearheaded Gov. Arthur Defensor Jr. at the Western Visayas Regional Museum. On June 10 the provincial government received 100 Iloilo tree seedlings from the province of Capiz through Gov. Esteban Evan Contreras. It is unique because it is the only tree named after a place, said Atty. Arturo Cangrejo, PENRO head. “We will plant them in areas where they have a bigger chance of growing,” said Defensor. Defensor campaigned for planting native trees like narra, molave, ilang-ilang, banaba, toog, among others, and fruit trees such as duhat, caimito, santol, pomelo, lansones, sampalok, and chico. The LGUs planted their Iloilo tree seedlings yesterday but will still participate in the bigger tree-planting activity in September. (With a report from the Philippine News Agency/PN) ‘TANUM ILOILO’. Gov. Arthur Defensor Jr. plants an Iloilo tree to mark Arbor Day on June 25, 2020 at the Western Visayas Regional Museum where he also launched the Iloilo provincial government’s reforestation project “Tanum Iloilo.” This project aims to grow 1.5 million native and fruit-bearing trees this year. IAN PAUL CORDERO/PN Iloilo tree is native in the province while it also grows in the forests of Jamindan, Capiz. However, the tree-planting proper will be conducted during the province’s annual “Pista sa Kakahuyan” in September. Forty-three 43 local government units (LGUs) participated “virtually”. This reforestation program aims to grow 1.5 million native and fruit-bearing trees this year, according to the Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office (PENRO) which is leading this project.
