Pretty Lights Takes On Telluride With Fresh Perspective

Posted on by

first_imgWhen last we met in this Southwestern Colorado mountain town one year ago, the Pretty Lights Analog Future Band changed the game, the traveling PL-fans from all over the country impressed the locals, who were all happy to welcome the fan-base back to Telluride, CO for a second two-night run.The ever-evolving lineup of musicians who support Derek Smith, now includes new drummer Alvin Ford Jr., along with PL-Veterans Brian Coogan (Hammond B3, Clavinet, Wurlitzer), Break Science’s Borahm Lee (Prophet, Farfisa, Fender Rhodes) and Chris Karns (turntables).  The PL Live Band took the project to new places with fresh takes on old school jams, classic rock remixes to stoke the locals, and brand new improvisational vintage future sounds.Something about the Telluride altitude elevates Pretty Lights Music and it was obvious that last year was a major turning point for the project.  The Telluride 2015 experience seemed to really deliver on the idea that this project goes beyond just the music; it’s a broader thing, about the family vibes of a group of travelers who rely on each other, who contribute to the experiential vibes that the band feeds off of, along with an improved and completely in-house approach to video (much of which was shot by Smith in the days ahead of the shows), along with a new lighting approach, where lasers and lights were accented by glittery raindrops on night two.In the past, PL-heads would live and die by set lists, hoping for rare gems, but with the current incarnation of the band, all of the music is new-sounding with way more empty space which creates a head nod hip-hop vibe that seemed to look back from the future toward Derek’s earlier collaborative hip hop project, Listen, where he was an MC and producer. This decade-plus old hip hop legacy came to a culmination on night two, where Derek asked drummer Alvin Ford Jr. to lay down a beat for him to ad-lib three full verses, providing a platform for the usually vague Smith to directly address the Telluride crowd, letting them know that the collection of letters delivered to him by the fans the previous year made him cry and changed his life, along with the his perspective on what the PL project is. Tossing his trademark Yankees hat into the crowd and removing his hood for the last two tracks of the weekend emphasized the extent to which Derek had put himself out there this weekend.  And everyone was most definitely on the same page.– words Brian Jonke [all photos courtesy of Djivan Schapira – B.A.D.

A call for reducing fluoride levels in drinking water

Posted on by

first_img Read Full Story Controversy over fluoride levels in drinking water in Massachusetts has made headlines in recent months as Cambridge, Gloucester, Newburyport, and other towns in Massachusetts relook at the decades-old practice of adding fluoride to public drinking water to reduce dental caries (cavities). Some of the controversy between scientists, dental professionals, anti-fluoride activists, town officials, and others in Massachusetts and across the U.S. might be reduced if the U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) proposal for lowering fluoride levels in U.S. drinking water was finalized, according to a Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health researcher.“I know that [the Department of] Health and Human Services in Washington has recommended that [U.S. communities] decrease the level of fluoride in water from 1.0 part per million to 0.7 parts per million. I think we ought to do that right away,” Philippe Grandjean, adjunct professor of environmental health, said on WBUR’s Radio Boston on February 5, 2015.Close to 75% of the U.S. population receives drinking water containing 0.7-1.2 parts per million (ppm) fluoride to prevent tooth decay, levels that were based on recommendations from the federal government made more than four decades ago. The decision to add fluoride to a water supply is made by local or state governments.last_img read more

Indonesia aims to double gas production by 2030 with major projects in pipeline

Posted on by

first_imgIndonesia is aiming to double gas production over the next 10 years to 12,300 million cubic feet per day (mmscfd) as it sets sights on becoming one of the top global gas exporters with major projects in the pipeline.The government’s Upstream Oil and Gas Regulatory Special Task Force (SKK Migas) said in a statement on March 4 that two developments last year “added optimism” to Indonesia’s goal of becoming a leading gas producer. He was referring to the resumption of a stalled gas project at the offshore Masela Block and the discovery of a giant gas reserve at the Sakakemang Block in South Sumatra. However, major oil and gas players told The Jakarta Post that SKKMigas was still in talks with stakeholders over how to achieve the target. Topics : SKKMigas itself has an ambitious oil production target of 1 million barrels per day (bpd) by 2030. The target, which is 1.3 times bigger than last year’s production rate of 746,000 bpd, harks back to the Indonesian oil and gas industry’s golden age in the 1980s, when oil production was above 1 million bpd and the country was a member of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC).In comparison to the SKKMigas target, the General National Energy Planning road map – the regulatory guide for Indonesia’s energy transition – projects oil and gas production rates to reach a much lower 667 bpd and 5,808 mmscfd respectively by 2030. Last year’s production rates were higher than the two figures.Furthermore, Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry data shows that oil and gas investments to Indonesia last year fell 7 percent short of the US$13.4 billion annual target.Nevertheless, Indonesia is developing two new LNG facilities that will enable higher LNG exports. Aside from Inpex’s Masela plant, British Petroleum (BP) is developing the Tangguh Train 3 in West Papua, which is expected to produce 3.8 million tons of LNG each year. The two facilities would double Indonesia’s LNG production capacity to 33.1 million tons each year by 2027.SKKMigas noted that, of the total 2,025 billion British thermal (Bbtu) units of LNG piped in Indonesia last year, 508 Bbtu was sold domestically and 1,417 Bbtu was exported, mostly to China, Japan, South Korea, Thailand and Taiwan. “Asia is expected to remain the dominant region [for long-term LNG demand] in the decades to come, with South and Southeast Asia generating more than half of the increased demand,” Dutch energy giant Shell wrote in its latest LNG Outlook report. In May 2019, Indonesia concluded an 18-year negotiation with Japan’s Inpex Corp over developing a liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant in Masela, which will produce 9.5 million tons of LNG each year. Four months later, Spain’s Repsol announced the discovery of an estimated 2 trillion cubic feet (tcf) gas reserve in Sakakemang – the third-largest discovery in the Asia-Pacific last year.SKKMigas head Dwi Soetjipto said in the statement that the gas would be used “to improve the competitiveness of domestic industries and to create an opportunity for Indonesia to once again become a leading LNG supplier to the world”.Read also: Oil and gas players dedicate 2019 for the long-haul Boosting domestic gas production and exports is one of Indonesia’s many strategies to turn around the country’s gaping oil and gas trade deficit that remains a key vulnerability. The deficit reached $1.18 billion in January, up 2.8 times from the previous year, Statistics Indonesia (BPS) data show.“The vision of 12,300 mmscfd by 2030 is a challenging one, and it will require considerable effort, collaboration and investment on the part of the industry and the government to achieve this,” said Gary Selbie, country manager for Premier Oil Indonesia, the country’s seventh-largest gas producer last year, on March 6.He said industry stakeholders had conducted preliminary discussions on meeting the goal. They also planned several meetups in the coming months to create a detailed road map to help achieve the target.Indonesian Petroleum Association (IPA) executive director Marjolijn “Meity” Wajong told the Post on March 7 that SKKMigas had not yet engaged with the IPA over the plan but that it would do so in the near future.“Basically, we welcome the plan to increase production as long as we can figure out how to ensure good project economics,” she said.Read also: Indonesia projects lower oil and gas production amid low investmentlast_img read more

Messi hints at retirement

first_imgRelatedPosts Barca president Bartomeu says he won’t go to war anymore with Messi Messi scores twice in Barca friendly Messi becomes football’s second billionaire + Top 10 Lionel Messi has admitted on the back of his sixth Ballon d’Or triumph that “retirement is approaching”, but the Argentine hopes to enjoy “many more years” at the top and says Barcelona have nothing to worry about when it comes to his future.That will come as a relief to those at Camp Nou, with it having already been revealed that an all-time great has an exit clause in his current contract.There has been no suggestion that it will be triggered, with Messi continuing to be a talismanic presence for the reigning La Liga champions.His efforts have once again seen him recognised as the finest player on the planet, with the 32-year-old now boasting one more Golden Ball than eternal rival Cristiano Ronaldo, and there has been no sign of him slowing down.Messi is, however, aware that he is closer to the end of his career than the start, with there an acceptance that the day will come when he is forced to hang up his boots and bring an iconic era in modern football to a close.He told reporters at a star-studded Ballon d’Or ceremony in Paris: “I’m aware of how old I am.“And I enjoy these moments so much because I know that retirement is approaching. Time flies.”Messi was quick to counter those comments by reiterating that he has no plans to walk away from football any time soon.He added: “I hope, God willing, that I keep playing for many more year.“I’m now 32, though, and will be 33 at the end of the season, so, as I said, everything depends on how I feel physically.“Right now I feel better than ever on a physical and a personal level, and I hope I can go on for a lot longer.” Tags: Lionel Messilast_img read more

Berget poised for Bluebirds

Posted on by

first_imgOle Gunnar Solskjaer is set to make his third Norwegian signing with Molde striker Jo Inge Berget due to complete his move to the club on Friday. “He knows the way I want to play – he’s strong, intelligent, smart. He scored against England in the Under-21 European Championships and will do well for us,” said Solskjaer of the 23-year-old, ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup fourth-round match against Bolton. Another man expected to complete a move to Cardiff is Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha. The 21-year-old has made just four appearances for the Red Devils this season, one of which came in the Community Shield win over Wigan. A move to Cardiff would allow the England cap to gain regular first-team action, but Solskjaer insisted, contrary to reports, that the player has not had a medical. “You have to ask Manchester United,” said the Bluebirds boss. “He is a Manchester United player. I cannot comment about players who are not Cardiff players. Nothing has been concluded.” Press Associationcenter_img Solskjaer has already brought in midfielders Magnus Wolff Eikrem and Mats Moller Daehli from Heerenveen and Molde respectively. Berget, who like Eirkem and Daehli shares an agent with Solskjaer, was out of contract with Molde in the summer and is expected to put pen to paper on his Cardiff deal on Friday, after undergoing a medical on Thursday evening. last_img read more

Ireland coach Joe Schmidt impressed by England midfield selection

Posted on by

first_img Schmidt has backed England to threaten across the fast-approaching World Cup, as much thanks to their midfield blend as anything else. “They’ve put together some really nice plays, particularly from set-piece,” said Schmidt. “Then you throw in a guy like (Alex) Goode who has got so many skills, where he put in the little cross-kick for Jonny May. So I really do think it’s a nice balance for them. “They’ve got enough guys who are ball-players and they’ve got enough guys who can get you over the gain-line. “Sometimes if it’s all ball-players and there’s just a wall in front of you, you play away and go nowhere. So sometimes you just need someone who will win you a collision and put you back on the front foot. “I think they’ve got a really good mix of that.” Joe Schmidt believes England boast “a nice balance” to their World Cup midfield options, despite question marks still hanging over Stuart Lancaster’s strongest inside-back division. Ireland boss Schmidt hailed England counterpart Lancaster for balancing power and finesse across his selections at centre and fly-half ahead of the two sides meeting at Twickenham on Saturday. Fleet-footed Jonathan Joseph has vowed to forge a formidable centre partnership with blunt-force specialist Brad Barritt against Ireland, while Owen Farrell and George Ford are still battling it out for the starting fly-half berth. Schmidt appeared nonplussed when quizzed on England’s midfield conundrum, claiming by including Sam Burgess and Exeter’s Henry Slade Lancaster has rounded out his squad in style. “Jonathan Joseph was saying in the week that they will be a really good combination because Barritt’s the direct strongman and he’ll use footwork and acceleration,” said Schmidt. “I think if you slotted Sam Burgess in there you could say he’s the direct powerhouse and that Joseph still has the footwork. “Where Joseph’s got the footwork I think Slade’s got class, his ability to distribute. He’s still got a good change-up to carry but he’s got good kicking skills as well, s o they can vary up their midfield as they need to. “I’m just happy they are not in our pool.” England will launch their World Cup bid on home soil by taking on Fiji at Twickenham on Friday, September 19. Ireland will open their Pool D account against Canada in Cardiff the following day, with Schmidt and Lancaster’s men contesting the final warm-up battle this weekend. Rugby League convert Burgess has been pitched in despite just half a season of union with Bath, with Exeter’s fast-developing playmaker Slade also sneaking into the final 31.
