first_imgNew Orleans’ world famous Jazz Fest will return to the Fair Grounds Race Course from April 27th to April 29th and May 3rd to May 6th. Aerosmith, Aretha Franklin, Sting, Jimmy Buffet & His Acoustic Airmen,, Jack White, Beck, Lionel Richie, David Byrne, Anita Baker, Bonnie Raitt, Khalid, Sturgill Simpson, Jack Johnson, Sheryl Crow, Common, and Cage the Elephant are scheduled to headline the iconic two-weekend celebration.This year’s Fest will feature Beck’s long-awaited return after his 2016 set was cancelled due to inclement weather. It will also showcase a rare performance from New Orleans rockers The Radiators, who have only played gigs at Tipitina’s and Jazz Fest since the band began a semi-hiatus in 2011. Additionally, R&B star Anita Baker will swing through the festival on her upcoming farewell tour. Of course, plenty of local Louisiana artists will be on the bill, such as Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, The Revivalists, Aaron Neville, The Radiators, Big Freedia, Irma Thomas, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Jon Batiste with The Dap Kings, Dumpstaphunk, Sonny Landreth, Galactic, Better Than Ezra, Tab Benoit, Rebirth Brass Band, Tank and the Bangas, Anders Osborne, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, Davell Crawford, Boyfriend, The Soul Rebels, Sweet Crude, Jon Cleary Kermit Ruffins (leading a tribute to Louis Armstrong), and many more. The festival will also celebrate the music of the late Fats Domino as well as the City of New Orleans’ 300th anniversary.Other acts on the lineup include Juanes, Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit, Steve Miller Band, Smokey Robinson, Lyle Lovett & His Large Band, Toots & The Maytals, George Benson, Steel Pulse, Delbert McClinton, Buddy Guy, Old Crow Medicine Show, Charlie Wilson, The Blind Boys of Alabama, Charles Lloyd & The Marvels with Lucinda Williams, Maze feat. Frankie Beverly, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, and Ron Carter Trio, among many others.The full lineup for Jazz Fest 2018 can be found via the festival’s website. Tickets are now on sale.[Photo: Dave Vann]last_img read more

first_imgScientists will be able to predict earthquake magnitudes earlier than ever before thanks to new research by Marine Denolle, assistant professor in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences (EPS).“For large-strike slip earthquakes like those that occur on the San Andreas Fault, which are likely to rupture for about 50 seconds, we would be able to predict the final magnitudes 2 to 5 seconds after getting the first seismic wave,” said Denolle, senior author of the study that appeared recently in Geophysical Research Letters.Denolle shares authorship with Philippe Danré, the first author and former EPS visiting master’s student; Jiuxun Yin, a Ph.D. candidate in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences; and Brad Lipovsky, an EPS researcher. The team also proved that the activity of earthquakes is actually organized, not chaotic as scientists had previously believed.“Our research, which is technically rather simple, provides answers relevant not only to earthquake dynamics, but to prediction of earthquake behavior before the earthquake ends,” said Denolle. While there is still no way to predict quakes before they begin, current detection systems consist of a series of sensors that transmit signals to determine the location and magnitude once rapid shaking occurs.Denolle and her team used data products and created numerical models to predict an earthquake’s final magnitude 10 to 15 seconds faster than today’s best algorithms — seconds that could provide enough time for people to exit a building or for officials to stop traffic before shaking starts.The team began by examining patterns of seismic signals — transient waveforms that radiate from the first rupture in a fault, a thin seam of crushed rock separating two blocks of the earth’s crust. An earthquake occurs when the blocks break free. Scientists read these waves using an underground instrument called a seismometer that translates motions into a graph called a seismogram. “Seismograms give us information about what happened on the fault at the place where the earthquake occurred,” said Denolle.Denolle and her team combined previous seismograms, which recorded changes in the waves over time as they traveled between the seismometer and the fault. This data product, known as “source time function,” provides a more accurate read on the waves from the source over long distances.Denolle and her team examined a catalog of source time functions from earthquakes around the globe between 1990 and 2017. They discovered that large earthquakes are actually composed of a series of subevents, smaller events whose size is nearly proportional to the size of the main one. The team concluded that they could predict the final size of an earthquake based on the size of the first few subevents.“The self-organization of earthquake ruptures is well-explained by heterogeneity on the fault, and our current knowledge of earthquake physics can explain our observations,” said Denolle.The researchers hope their work will continue to evolve and can one day help improve the algorithms for early warnings of earthquake. To do this, they will work on extracting more accurate high-frequency signals from earthquakes to understand more about their dynamics.“Eventually, we would hope that the study can provide some guidelines for proper modeling of large earthquakes, and serve as a tool for earthquake early warning, especially for regions expecting large earthquakes, like the Pacific Coast and Japan,” said Denolle.last_img read more

Add in smiling, friendly marketers, vendors that actually get along, and a city that is known for its live music, a social conscience and being a bit weird, and you might just have the perfect combination for a credit union marketing conference.Here are eight of the “aha!” moments that caught my attention during MAC2017 in Austin TX:1. Marketing is about dealing with the world the way it is, not the way you want it to be.The world is evolving and changing, so you need to craft the member experience for people that may not look like you:• One in six people are married to a spouse of a different race/ethnicity.• 7% of the population is multi-racial, a segment growing 3x faster than any other, and whites will be a minority by 2041.• Family is who you love and who loves you back. Only 22% of people fall into the “married couple with children” category.• 24% of the population claim no religious affiliation at all.• People would rather join a cause than a club. Clubs are exclusive, while causes are inclusive.• You have 8 seconds to make an impact — a goldfish has a longer attention span than humans.– Kelly McDonald, author of How to Market to People Not Like You and Crafting the Customer Experience for People Not Like You. continue reading »last_img read more
