first_imgOn Thursday, the Baltimore-bred funk-jam juggernaut Pigeons Playing Ping Pong participated in their first-ever Paste Studio Session, performing “Fun In Funk” and “Porcupine” from their recently release Pizazz, as well as a brand new tune “Dawn A New Day”. “Dawn A New Day” has only been played a few times previously during the band’s October run, marking the song’s national debut at Paste Studios. You can check out the new tune in the video below at the 28:30 mark.“Dawn A New Day” is much different than the rest of the band’s repertoire, as it heads down the road a Motown-esque vibe, with tinges of southern rock and soul, and inspiration drawing from the music of the Allman Brothers Band.Watch Pigeons Playing Ping Pong perform at Paste Studio Sessions below, and catch them in a city near you!Pigeons Playing Ping Pong is currently on their national fall tour, extending through New Year’s Eve in Covington, Kentucky.

first_imgNeil Young has announced the upcoming double-album reissue of his 1990 studio album with Crazy Horse, Ragged Glory. Young’s 18th career studio album (his sixth with Crazy Horse) was initially released back in September 1990, following extensive rehearsal sessions with the band at California’s Plywood Analog studio. Those sessions ended up churning out an additional 38 minutes of recorded material, which has been recently rediscovered by John Hanlon, one of the recording engineers who worked on the album with Young and Crazy Horse.The original album is 62 minutes of pure, unadulterated garage rock joy. The distortion friendly project includes a mix of guitar-friendly songs ranging from the less-than-three-minute “White Line” to a pair of 10+ minute jams in “Love to Burn” and “Love and Only Love”. Those were just a few of the songs which Young and Crazy Horse would play and rehearse twice a day for two weeks during the album’s pre-production, which is where this plentiful bounty of extra recorded material comes from, most of which has never been heard by fans.The announcement from the Neil Young Archives website also gives fans an idea of what kind of quality these unheard songs and recordings carry, and it’s apparently very good.“Listening to these tracks is a real head-scratcher,” it reads in a statement shared by the website. “They are equal to anything on the existing record, maybe better. Possibly, the thought at the time was to have a single album and not include the songs from the last half of the unique ‘set oriented’ recording sessions.”The reissue is planned to be titled Ragged Glory II, although no official release date has been announced as of Tuesday. Fans should expect the double-album to arrive sometime early in the coming year, possibly on all three formats of vinyl, CD and high-definition digital.News of the upcoming reissue follows a slightly entertaining few weeks of opposition between Young and promoter British Summer Time. The rock guitarist was prematurely announced to co-headline an outdoor concert in London’s Hyde Park with Bob Dylan and His Band next July, although that event seems to be up in the air with Young vehemently opposed to playing any show with Barclays Bank on as a presenting sponsor. Regardless of what happens over in Britain next summer, Young will play a run of solo concerts in Wisconsin and Milwaukee next month, with tickets to the shows available for purchase here.[H/T Rolling Stone]last_img read more

first_imgAccording to U.S. Solicitor General Donald B. Verrilli Jr., the defining feature of his job—the most challenging, rewarding aspect—is grappling with what the position of the United States should be on an issue. Verrilli explained that this task is harder than it might seem, involving a balancing of interests and making considered decisions on whether the U.S. should modify a previously held position.Verrilli’s talk, held Wednesday, Oct. 31 at Harvard Law School, was sponsored by Law and Government Program of Study Faculty Leaders David Barron and Richard Lazarus.“I don’t know whether in my time in office, I have gotten that right, or I will get it right,” Verrilli said. “They’re exceedingly difficult and challenging judgments, but every solicitor general has described this as the greatest legal job one could have, and it certainly has been for me. And one of the main reasons why is dealing with this set of issues…often of great moment.”Francis Biddle, who was solicitor general from 1939 to 1940, once claimed that the solicitor general serves an abstract client, and has “no master to serve but his country.” But Verrilli said he has a somewhat different view. “Having been awakened more than once in the middle of the night by phone calls from angry general counsels from Cabinet departments about decisions I had made, [I think] the client is anything but an abstraction.”Watch a video of Verilli’s talk on the HLS website.last_img read more

first_imgRystad Energy: North American oil and gas bankruptcy debt likely to top $100 billion this year FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Kallanish Energy:The debt from North American oil and natural gas bankruptcies has already reached an all-time high in 2020 and it will get even bigger in the last two months of the year, Kallanish Energy has learned.To date, there have been 84 Chapter 11 filings in 2020 among exploration and production firms and oilfield services firms, down from the historical high of 142 in 2016, Rystad Energy said in a new report based on the Chapter 11 data from the Haynes and Boone law firm. But the debt associated with those 2020 filings is $89 billion, $19 billion more than in 2016, it said.The cumulative debt is expected to top $100 billion this year, it said.The average debt per company in 2020 has been $1.05 billion, almost twice as much as the 2017 level of $576 million, it said. The average debt for E&Ps [exploration and production companies] this year has been $1.34 billion and $792 million for OFS [oil field services firms].“Yet we argue that the number of filings will still remain above the level recorded in 2019 over the next two years, as the industry keeps navigating through the challenging market environment,” said Artem Abramov, head of shale research at Rystad Energy, in a statement.The debt from the 55 E&Ps that have filed for Chapter 11 in 2020 is about $54 billion, it said. That number of bankruptcy filings could reach 61 before Dec. 31 with a total projected debt of $69 billion, it said. The number of Chapter 11 E&P filings is projected to be 54 in 2021 and 45 in 2022, assuming $40 WTI and $3 Henry Hub prices. That total debt will be $44 billion in 2021 and $32 billion in 2022.More: Record high Chapter 11 debt in 2020: Rystad Energylast_img read more

first_imgPulling up the final climb on US 19 and over Findley Ridge into Dahlonega, a beautiful burnt-orange harvest moon appeared in the northeast sky, just above the horizon. Passing the Shell service station on the ridge, with the moon as a backdrop, a line of several cars had backed up, each waiting to fill up with the only remaining fuel for miles around. Gasoline had suddenly become a scarce commodity as supplies in Georgia, and all over the South, dried up due to a leak in a major pipeline in Alabama. I took my place in line, worried I might not have enough to make it to the mountains and back that night. The pump moved slowly as I squeezed the last few drops from the tank and the station attendant ran outside and yelled “No more gas!” An auspicious start to what would be a very memorable night.My girlfriend Psyche Wimberly and I had hopped in the car earlier that Saturday in Duluth (Atlanta suburb) on a quest to drive to the mountains, find Karl Meltzer at one of the Appalachian Trail crossings, and offer him and his crew support and encouragement. Karl was attempting to break his friend Scott Jurek’s record setting run on the AT last year when he finished in a time of 46 days, 8 hours, and 7 minutes, breaking the previous record for the 2,189 mile trail held by Jenn Pharr Davis.imag0029Psyche and I are both avid trail/ultrarunners, with a keen interest in this AT speed record attempt and I had eagerly followed the postings on Facebook and a Red Bull website (Red Bull sponsored the entire venture). We’ve both done multi-days and crewed variously for each other on different journey runs so are well aware what it takes to not only do such a run but handle all the logistics as well, although this was on a much grander scale.A stop at a liquor store in Dawsonville for beer (Dankasaurus IPA) followed by Pizza Hut and gas, and we headed up GA-60 to Woody Gap. It was difficult to discern where Karl might be by looking at some outdated Facebook posts but I happened to see one by David Horton that indicated Karl was within 50 miles of Springer. Thus my plan was to hit Woody Gap first and swing around to Neels Gap if necessary.As we reached the crowded parking area we spotted the crew van and a few people milling about. We walked over and introduced ourselves – waiting for Karl were Eric Belz (crew chief), Cheryl (Karl’s wife), and Jake (Red Bull representative coordinating the project). They were extremely welcoming and gladly accepted our offerings of beer and pizza. A huge red foldout chair was setup by the van, evidently as a joke. They indicated Scott was pacing Karl (and had been for most of the day) and they expected them to come down the trail shortly. Eric was busy cooking up a huge helping of link sausages and pierogies, while Cheryl readied other supplies in anticipation of their arrival and Jake made sure a replacement SPOT Tracker was available if needed. The crew carried several SPOT Trackers throughout the journey and switched them out with Karl to ensure he always had a “fresh” one.imag0030Soon thereafter we saw 2 headlamps emerging from the woods as Karl and Scott moved to the south side of the Gap and the impromptu aid station. I have to admit I was a little star-struck when they trotted up. They were both in good spirits but Karl was all business – you could see the fire in his eyes….he was focused and driven, not only to finish strongly and beat Scott’s record, but to lay down a time under 46 hours. Unbelievable determination and drive. In the dim light of headlamps around the van you could literally see that drive in Karl’s eyes and rolled up in the taut sinew of his legs and arms. The trail had taken its toll but had clearly not broken him. Both runners quickly checked headlamps, loaded some food, and slipped back into the darkness. Woody Gap is exactly 20.1 miles from Springer and the next access point was Cooper Gap, another 8.3 miles downtrail. The crew graciously offered to let us tag along.We joined the tail end of a small caravan headed toward Cooper Gap in a blur of winding paved roads that ended in a long/steep climb on a dirt section of Gaddistown Road. The Gap is a confluence of 5 roads and while the AT crosses there the path isn’t obvious – while Eric and I easily found the incoming trail on the Northbound side it took almost 15 minutes to find its counterpart on the Southbound side. We also spent several minutes trying to determine the correct road out of the Gap toward Springer – and settled on the one that “seemed” right according to the maps on our phones. Shortly after that another car pulled up with Karl’s sister Kris and her daughter Shannon. The runner’s ETA to Cooper was 12:45 am and just after midnight another car rolled up and out jumped David Horton, excited to join the guys for the final 11.8 mile stretch. At 12:18 they arrived, almost 30 minutes ahead of schedule. At this point Karl looked even more determined and quickly went about his business to steel himself for the final push. Less than 5 minutes later all 3 runners disappeared once again in the darkness.imag0058Our 4 car caravan had now grown to 6 as we hurtled up and down and around miles of Forest Service roads through the dark, kicking up so much dust and dirt it was difficult to see. After an eternity we arrived at the parking area below Springer, greeted by the bright glow of spotlights and cameras – the Red Bull crew was there, prepped and ready to go and began filming and interviewing Karl’s family and crew. Karl’s dad, Karl Sr., was there and told me how proud he was of Karl and what an honor to have been able to help crew for him. Now it was just a waiting game and slowly but surely the Red Bull team slipped up to the top of the mountain to take their place. Karl Sr., Kris, and Shannon followed a short time later. Psyche had by now fallen fast asleep in the back of my car so I decided to trek up to the top by myself. The time was now 2:00 am, with the runners expected to finish between 3:00 and 3:30 am.The scene at the top was surreal, with perhaps 8 members of the Red Bull team positioned around the summit rocks, spotlights casting a bright glow through a thin blanket of fog blowing across the peak. I have visited Springer often in the past on trail runs, but exclusively from the Approach Trail out of Amicalola, and never at night. It was a slightly cool night but not uncomfortably so. I took a seat next to Karl’s family as we chatted a little and waited, while the Red Bull team ran through the motions of a practice run for the arrival of the runners. I understood that Eric and Cheryl were planning to accompany Karl on the final 1 mile climb to the top. There was some level of nervous excitement but it was dampened somewhat by the late hour.At 3:38 am Karl strode confidently up the last few feet of trail, trailed closely by his wife and companions, threw his hands in the air, and exuberantly reached out to touch the Southern Terminus sign with both hands. He was done – on this 3rd attempt Karl had not only broken Scott’s previous FKT but had body-slammed it, finishing in a mind-boggling 45 days, 22 hours, and 38 minutes! Soaking in the accomplishment he extended hugs for his amazing pacers, wife, crew, and other family members and at Horton’s suggestion signed the trail register. The atmosphere was celebratory but under control as the Red Bull crew recorded the end of this amazing journey. Although he was visibly fatigued he was patient enough to answer several questions, re: How many pairs of shoes did you go through? Shirts? Animal encounters? How tired are you? What are you going to do next?imag0056As they continued celebrating and getting pictures I quietly slipped down the mountain and back to my car, feeling fortunate and thankful that I was able to be there and experience this incredible feat – and in a very small way contribute something to it. The drive back to Duluth with Psyche was uneventful, save for a wrong turn I made in that maze of Forest Service roads.The license plate on my car reads “FARTHER” and I can’t think of a more appropriate metaphor for life – Karl’s determination to do the near impossible and follow his dream is the true embodiment of that spirit and is an example of what anyone can ultimately accomplish if they try.Many thanks to Karl’s family, crew, and the Red Bull team for allowing me to be a part of this.last_img read more

first_img July 1, 2005 Regular News Governor signs alimony bill Governor signs alimony bill Orlando Sen. Gary Siplin expects quite a few motions to modify alimony judgments will be filed this summer now that the governor has signed into law his bill that allows alimony to be cut off if the ex-spouse has a roommate of the opposite sex.Gov. Jeb Bush signed SB 152 June 10. It authorizes a court to reduce or terminate an award of alimony “if there is proof by a preponderance of the evidence that the obligee is in a supportive relationship with another person not related by consanguinity or affinity.”Siplin, a Democrat and a lawyer, called the measure a “pro faith, pro marriage, and pro family bill.” He said he filed the legislation after hearing complaints from men who were still obligated to pay alimony even though their former spouses were living with their boyfriends. In one instance, Siplin said, a Tampa man was required to keep paying $5,000 a month in alimony even though his ex-wife and her boyfriend traveled to Las Vegas with a large group of friends for a ceremony that had all the trappings of a wedding, sans the marriage license.Siplin said the new law will have a fundamental effect in the way alimony is treated in Florida and the specifics of the bill give judges plenty of discretion “about whether they should modify or terminate alimony — so I think it is fair.”The bill originally had language that provided that the court could consider the duration and circumstances of a continuing, conjugal relationship in determining whether to modify an alimony award, but a House amendment struck that provision and added criteria to determine if the obligee and the other person provided support for each other’s children, regardless of whether legally obligated to do so. It also extended the court’s authority to modify or terminate alimony to those situations in which the obligee is in a platonic, live-in relationship with another person and there is evidence of a supportive relationship between the obligee and the other person.last_img read more

You’ll find exactly the information you’re looking for at the event, where you’ll gain Dan Berger’s insights and updates on notable economic and operational trends. And NCUA Region Four Director C. Keith Morton will guide you through upcoming rules and regulations.Because “No Rain” should be spoiling your internal cultureWhile water can cause massive destruction to your physical foundation, cultural cracks can do even more damage.

And communication guru Stacey Hanke will provide you with tools to ensure effective, consistent communication is practiced throughout your credit union.These four reasons help explain why NAFCU’s CEOs and Senior Executives Conference is essential if you’re a credit union leader—and why Dan Berger’s playlist is sonically essential, too.

I believed this when she was charged, and today, after conviction, there should be no question that she should resign immediately.“While there is no simple procedure to remove a civil officer, the Office of Attorney General and its employees, as well as the people of Pennsylvania, deserve to move on.
