Dirtwire and an-ten-nae Showcase New Material in SF

Posted on by

first_imgLoad remaining images The Bay Area is an established hotbed for progressive dance music, birthplace of the psychedelic revolution, and a veritable headquarters for the Black Rock diaspora. This unique cultural alchemy makes the cities suitable hosts of all things avant-garde, a most fertile garden of artistic vegetation, musical and otherwise. Hailing from galactivated East Bay environs, an-ten-nae and Dirtwire are continually kicking down the doors of convention, steadfastly ushering in the new sound. Both artists used the Independent, packed to the gills and chock-full of familiar faces, to unveil their freshest and dopest new produce on a busy Thursday night.an-ten-nae opened the festivities just after 9pm, as people began to trickle in off Divisadero I wondered aloud just why an-ten-nae was on the front end of this bill, though we soon would find out. Government name Adam Ohana, the Oakland-based bass icon has long been a provocative purveyor of low-end theory.  One half of demonic masked avengers Dimond Saints, as a solo artist an-ten-nae is now nearly four years into the orgasmic odyssey that is Medicine Crunk, after over a decade concocting its precursor, Acid Crunk. The style/genre of Medicine Crunk is all his own, transcending dubstep, glitch, and trap; his is future music embracing the contemporary, an ever-deepening forest of ILLumination at once emotionally inviting, and sensually invigorating.Possibly the finest practitioner of ‘shanti-ratchet-sexy’, an-ten-nae used this quiet-as-kept opening slot to unveil ninety minutes of previously unheard, all original material, a great deal of it from his forthcoming solo album Medicine. In a display of courage, he began his set with some “top secret” house jams, BPMs that raised a few eyebrows, as four-on-the-floor is still considered a borderline cardinal sin in certain bass circles. I admired his fearlessness, even as he tactfully transitioned to the tribalized tantra that defines Medicine Crunk. The remaining hour and change was populated by a series of inspired, if sometimes unfinished ideas. He eschewed remixing songs of the current zeitgeist, instead forwarding a bevy of original melodies and riddims, at once an-ten-nae to the core, yet in a few ways quite unlike their prodigious predecessors. Bombastic, pulverizing low end was massaged by sensual tones, serpentine fire and a whiff of Palo Santo. Ethereal glitch-hop, smoothed out on the (half-time) R&B tip, with a goddess-pop feel/appeal to it; we drank down the medicine, straight no chaser.Cue the futuristic porch jams with a twist of spaghetti-western psychedelia, Dirtwire is an amalgam of anomaly. The brainchild of David Satori (Beats Antique), Evan Fraser (of the criminally slept-on Stellamara, and world-fusion funksters Hamsa Lila) and Mark Reveley (Jed and Lucia), the trio has been tearing up the underground, setting fire to festival nation with nary a f*ck given. Employing a treasure chest of acoustic weaponry such as guitar, banjo, harmonicas the world over, electric, acoustic and whamola basses, violins and  fiddles, and a laundry list of global percussion instruments, the band could be the ozone lovechild of Toubab Krewe and Midnight Vultures-era Beck.  Gleaning inspiration from the Wild Wild West with a dash of steampunk swagger, Dirtwire is a macrobiotic-cowboy Bob Weir, spinning Burner beats in a Frontierville brothel.Headlining the engagement, the show was in essence a Dirtwire CD Release Party, as the band is releasing their third full length album Showdown on March 9th. Opening with “Damn Rooster”, “Rusted Railway” and the beloved space-bandit groove “Shish Kabobs,” Dirtwire got the audience lubed up with a familiar trifecta before delving into several tracks from Showdown. Coming of age in the West Coast electronic/festival scene, Satori and company have begun to deftly harness their live performance, the instrumentation and electronic accoutrements working in tandem instead of in spite of each other.Recently, Dirtwire has been prone to bringing along an auxiliary member to play a traditional trap kit, in lieu of drum machines or presets. On this night, the bare-bones trio programmed electronic drums, and the beats sounded harmonious, in sonic lockstep with the plethora of instruments wielded by these three amigos. FOH engineer Jason Bruton had Dirtwire sounding as clean and vibrant as I’d ever heard, no doubt enhanced by the wonderful acoustics of this hallowed room. Fraser was particularly impressive on jaw harps, kalimbas, n’goni African harp, among other obscure, indigenous accompaniment. Stand-out jams included the spaghetti-step of “Bridge of Sons”, “Struttin,” and the jaw-harp beatbox of “Yunan.” Dirtwire sent the revelers home with a  twisted, tequila-soaked encore, getting the led out with a roaring “When the Levee Breaks.”Words: B.GetzPhotos: Chris Baldwin Photographylast_img read more

Saint Mary’s debuts summer study abroad programs

Posted on by

first_imgSaint Mary’s debuted two new summer study abroad programs this summer: the London LEB Program and an archeology program in Trim, Ireland.Both programs are open to students from all majors. The London LEB Program is a four-week program. Archeology in Ireland is a six-week program, but two- and four-week long options are also available, according to the Center for Women’s Intercultural Leadership (CWIL).“I have always wanted to study abroad, but by virtue of being a transfer student and someone who is double majoring, I could never do a semester program,” senior Adrienne Whisman said. “So, I looked for summer programs.”Junior Kiersten Lieurance said students participate in the London LEB Program through Maryville University in St. Louis. This past summer, two Saint Mary’s students were participants: Lieurance and senior Allison Burns. Photo courtesy of Allison Burns Junior Lieurance, left, and senior Burns, right, pose in London in front of the London Eye. The two participated in the London LEB program in the summer of 2016.“It was so culture-driven,” Lieurance said. “We went to the businesses for class — it wasn’t classroom-based, it was more learning and cultural experience.”The program consists of one class and one practicum. Lieurance took a globalization course, coupled with a practicum at the Victoria and Albert Museum. “[The] part that I liked best about my classes was the opportunity I got to go and visit all of these prominent businesses in London,” Burns said. “We went to City Hall, the Houses of Parliament, Canary Wharf, Fuller’s Brewery and many others, and [we] discussed topics of globalization with prominent business leaders.”Participating in a practicum allows the students to take things they learned in their classes and take it into the real world. As part of their practicum, Burns and Lieurance studied an exhibit at the museum and, using what they gathered, created a marketing plan. “The London LEB Program helped me within my major by being able to actually go and see some of the places [and] things I’ve learned about in class,” Burns said. “Any program or experience that exposes me to the history, religion, art, literature and philosophy I’ve only previously read about in a book is amazing.”The opportunity to work in the museum added to the cultural experience the students received from living in London, Lieurance said. “It was a completely different culture, but everyone we worked with was very welcoming,” she said. “I think it was more a learning experience, getting to understand the difference between their culture and our culture and how that affects the worldly businesses.”The archeology program also presents an opportunity for students to gather “real world” experience. Students stay in Trim and excavate the remains of a 13th century Dominican friary, according to CWIL.“The Trim program is unique,” Whisman said. “It allows students to integrate into Irish culture through a homestay family as well as loads of free time to explore not only Trim, Ireland, but also the rest of Ireland and the U.K.”Study abroad programs at Saint Mary’s are coordinated by CWIL. Karen Chambers, faculty coordinator of the Ireland program, said CWIL tries to listen to the requests of students as to which programs they would like to partake in.“On occasion, we have had students request some type of active archaeology experience which we previously had not been able to offer in our portfolio,” she said. “We have a long relationship with Maynooth University — next fall is our 40th year partnering with Maynooth — so we have a long and sustained interest from our students in Ireland, so this program combined the two interests.”This responsiveness led to the establishment of the archeology program. Whisman and senior Caylin McCallick are two of the students that participated in this program. “I decided to go because I love history and the thought of being a part of discovering even a small part of history was extremely intriguing,” McCallick said. “I wanted to go to a place where I wouldn’t get in trouble for touching historical artifacts.”Students work with the Irish Archaeology Field School and with professors that work on site with them, Chambers said. It also fulfills several requirements for students.The program facilitates a homestay for students and requires them to walk to and from the work site. The homestay provides a cultural experience for students that cannot come from simply visiting Ireland as a tourist, Chambers said.“Ireland is a rich culture, but those who visit as a tourist miss much of the culture that makes it different than U.S. culture,” she said. “Our Trim program is highlighted by a homestay experience in which students are invited into the home life of a family in the town. Understanding cultural differences is inherent in the liberal arts education — seeing that ideas can be viewed differently and learning to appreciate that difference.”Whisman experienced this exploration of culture during her time in Trim.“The fact that the dig excavated a medieval friary made me nerd out so hard,” she said. “The dig and the program helped me see history as it was and how it is still with us today. I walked to the dig site every day passing ruins and castles. America doesn’t have the luxury of seeing the remains of history from 800 years ago, or even 5,000 years ago.”Tags: center for women’s intercultural leadership, Ireland, London, saint mary’s, SMC, study abroadlast_img read more

Midville Field Day

Posted on by

first_imgApplied research related to four of the state’s major row crops will be presented to southeast Georgia farmers at the annual Southeast Georgia Research and Education Center (SGREC) Field Day in Midville, Georgia, on Wednesday, Aug. 9.University of Georgia scientists and Cooperative Extension agents from across the state will discuss research being completed in cotton, corn, peanuts and soybeans.Registration begins at 9 a.m. The field day starts at approximately 9:20 a.m. and ends around 1:30 p.m. Preregistration is not required for the event.“While additional work is being done, we’re repeating some of the same studies being completed at other research centers in Tifton, Georgia, and Plains, Georgia. We do so because we have a geographical and climate difference here. Our rain patterns are a little different. We’re typically drier than Tifton, so research here is vastly different than what’s being done in southwest Georgia,” said SGREC Superintendent Anthony Black.UGA Extension plant pathologist Bob Kemerait will discuss disease management and UGA Extension entomologists Phillip Roberts and John All will talk about insect management options.Researchers with the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Statewide Variety Testing program will present updates on the performance of various crop varieties. UGA soybean breeding program scientists will discuss the latest advancements being made in a commodity with a statewide farm gate value of more than $128 million.“Given the diverse geographic landscape in Georgia, the research being done in southwest Georgia is not applicable to farmers in southeast Georgia. The Southeast Georgia Research and Education Center is a vital tool to the success of our producers in that part of the state,” said Joe West, assistant dean for the UGA Tifton campus. West also oversees the Midville-based research and education center.The SGREC is located at 9638 Highway 56 South in Midville, Georgia. For more information, call 478-589-7472.last_img read more

Chile Wants to Host Center Targeting Organized Crime in Latin America

Posted on by

first_imgBy Dialogo May 22, 2012 On May 18, Chile tendered its candidacy to host a center targeting organized crime in Latin America, the creation of which was announced at the recent Summit of the Americas in Cartagena, Colombia, according to an announcement from the Organization of American States (OAS). The proposal was put forward by Chilean Interior Minister Rodrigo Hinzpeter upon meeting with OAS Secretary General José Miguel Insulza. The center would serve to monitor criminal activity and the coordination of operations throughout the region. “Minister Hinzpeter also expressed the decision of his government to cooperate with the OAS in its Mission to Support the Process of Public Security Reform in Honduras. The mission will begin its work immediately,” the statement added. Central America, and especially Honduras, has the world’s highest crime rates in areas without armed conflict, because of the struggle among the cartels and with the security forces to control regional drug-trafficking routes. Chile has been increasing its cooperation in that fight against drug trafficking, and on April 25, in the course of a major cocaine-seizure operation in the Caribbean, the United States announced that a ship from that South American country had participated.last_img read more

New Study Claims People Who’ve Had More Sexual Partners Report Unhappier Marriages

Posted on by

first_img Share LifestyleRelationships New Study Claims People Who’ve Had More Sexual Partners Report Unhappier Marriages by: – August 25, 2014 Tweet A widely reported new study claims that people — especially women — who have multiple sexual parters before tying the knot, report unhappier marriages down the line.The study comes to us from The National Marriage Project, based off research from two University of Denver professors, Galena K. Rhoades and Scott M. Stanley, who looked at relationship data collected from 2007 to 2008 of 1,000 unmarried Americans ages 18 to 34. During the following five years, 418 of the participants got married.Rhoades and Stanley took a closer look at those marriages to see if factors, including participants’ sexual past, played a role in current marital quality.Couples’ relationship quality was measured using a four-item version of the Dyadic Adjustment Scale, focusing on relationship happiness, thoughts about separation, frequency of confiding in one another, and a general item about how well things are going (the full scale, however, contains 32 items).According to researchers, the 23 percent of participants who only had sex with their spouse prior to getting hitched reported higher quality marriages versus those who had other past sexual partners as well.They claim this finding is especially true for women, writing in the report, “We further found that the more sexual partners a woman had had before marriage, the less happy she reported her marriage to be.”On top of that, researchers say that participants who lived with an S.O. — who did not become their future spouse — also reported unhappier marriages.So why would more sexual or relationship experience be associated with worse outcomes later on?Rhoades and Stanley hypothesize in the report that “more experience may increase one’s awareness of alternative partners.” In other words, people who have a number of prior relationships may become dissatisfied more easily.But isn’t that another way to say they might be more aware of a bad relationship? Isn’t that a good thing?Indeed, while the data presented in The Marriage Project’s 418-person study is legitimate, experts say that the conclusions drawn from it — especially those which cast judgement on one’s sexual history and incite sentiments of slut-shaming — may not be entirely accurate.Researchers in this field, who were not involved with this particular study, told The Huffington Post that these findings should be taken with a grain of salt.“There are a wide variety of reasons that may lead people to have multiple partners before marriage and, independent of how many partners they have, also be less satisfied in marriage,” Dr. Jim McNulty, a social psychology professor from Florida State University who has published a plethora of research on the topic, wrote in an email.“For example, people who tend to avoid commitment in general may have more sexual partners and be less happy when they settle down. It’s not the fact that they have more sexual partners that leads them to be less happy, it’s the fact that they don’t really like commitment. I would be very surprised if having multiple sexual partners before marriage, independent of any other factor, has a direct causal influence.”In other words, correlation should never be confused with causation.“We cannot make any conclusions about cause-and-effect,” says Justin Lehmiller, PhD, sex educator and researcher at Purdue University, adding, “Could it be that multiple premarital partners impacts marital happiness? Maybe. But it could also be that people who have more partners have different personalities or different attitudes toward marriage or relationships.”Beyond that, Lehmiller says there may be flaws in the way data was analyzed — the way in which good marriages were separated from bad marriages was “rather odd” he says. “Even the authors admit that they were ‘arbitrary’ in their report. They defined ‘higher quality marriages’ as those in which individuals scored in the top 40 percent … Why the top 40 percent?”McNulty also points out that though the authors are respected researchers, the study was not reported by an academic journal nor was it peer-reviewed.Huffington Post 199 Views   no discussionscenter_img Sharing is caring!
