JackLNDN To Premiere New Project Honey Drizzle At Denver’s Knew Conscious With Skydyed

first_imgDenver is in for some serious late-night jams this weekend, as Fort Collins-based electronic rockers Skydyed are set to bring their progressive sounds and beats to Knew Conscious Collective this Saturday night, June 24th. Joining them will be disco house producer JackLNDN, who will be premiering his latest project, Honey Drizzle, with Lady and The Gentlemen guitarist Jarrod Guaderrama. The show starts at 11:45pm and goes into the early hours of the morning.Skydyed is no strangers to the Colorado faithful, as they have become a staple of the scene, delivering an amalgamation of sounds tied to their love of funk, rock, and jazz, with plenty of break-beats thrown in to keep a constant ebb and flow of energy to their setlists. The trio of Andrew Slattery (bass synths/bass guitar), Max Doucette (guitar/keys), and Craig Babineau (drums) knows exactly when to hit hard and when it’s time to reel things in ever so slightly.As the London-born JackLNDN tells Live For Live Music in a comment about his latest electro-funk project, “We’re stoked to be premiering Honey Drizzle at Knew Conscious.

Bob Weir Joins Chris Robinson’s Green Leaf Rustlers For Three Classics In Marin County [Video]

first_imgLast night, Chris Robinson and his Green Leaf Rustlers project rounded out a three-night run at Sweetwater Music Hall in Marin County, CA, the Grateful Dead motherland. To mark the occasion, founding Grateful Dead member, local resident, and venue co-owner Bob Weir came out to join in the music, as he’s been known to do at the Mill Valley venue.Weir joined Robinson, multi-instrumentalist Barry Sless, bassist Pete Sears, drummer John Molo, and guitarist Isaiah Mitchell (usual guitarist Greg Loiacono was unavailable due to tour dates with The Mother Hips) for three songs to start their second set. After a pair of Grateful Dead staples–”They Love Each Other” and “West L.A. Fadeaway”–Weir finished out his guest spot by helping the band through “It’s All Over Now”, the Bobby and Shirley Womack-penned song that became The Rolling Stones‘ first #1 hit and that the Dead covered briefly toward the end of their career.Now that this brief run with the Rustlers is over, Robinson will turn his attention to As The Crow Flies, a new Black Crowes-facing project featuring Crowes guitarist Audley Freed and bassist Andy Hess, Chris Robinson Brotherhood drummer Tony Leone and keyboardist Adam MacDougall, as well as guitarist Marcus King.

Perfect landing

first_imgNew research is casting doubt on the old adage, “All you need to run is a pair of shoes.”Scientists have found that people who run barefoot, or in minimal footwear, tend to avoid “heel-striking,” and instead land on the ball of the foot or the middle of the foot. In so doing, these runners use the architecture of the foot and leg and some clever Newtonian physics to avoid hurtful and potentially damaging impacts, equivalent to two to three times body weight, that shod heel-strikers repeatedly experience.“People who don’t wear shoes when they run have an astonishingly different strike,”said Daniel E. Lieberman, professor of human evolutionary biology at Harvard University and co-author of a paper appearing this week in the journal Nature. “By landing on the middle or front of the foot, barefoot runners have almost no impact collision, much less than most shod runners generate when they heel-strike.“Most people today think barefoot running is dangerous and hurts, but actually you can run barefoot on the world’s hardest surfaces without the slightest discomfort and pain. All you need is a few calluses to avoid roughing up the skin of the foot. Further, it might be less injurious than the way some people run in shoes.”Working with populations of runners in the United States and Kenya, Lieberman and his colleagues at Harvard, the University of Glasgow, and Moi University in Kenya looked at the running gaits of three groups: those who had always run barefoot, those who had always worn shoes, and those who had converted to barefoot running from shod running. The researchers found a striking pattern.Most shod runners — more than 75 percent of Americans — heel-strike, experiencing a very large and sudden collision force about 1,000 times per mile run. People who run barefoot, however, tend to land with a springy step toward the middle or front of the foot.“Heel-striking is painful when barefoot or in minimal shoes because it causes a large collisional force each time a foot lands on the ground,” said co-author Madhusudhan Venkadesan, a postdoctoral researcher in applied mathematics and human evolutionary biology at Harvard. “Barefoot runners point their toes more at landing, avoiding this collision by decreasing the effective mass of the foot that comes to a sudden stop when you land, and by having a more compliant, or springy, leg.”The differences between shod and unshod running have evolutionary underpinnings. For example, said Lieberman, our early australopith ancestors had less-developed arches in their feet. Homo sapiens, by contrast, has evolved a strong, large arch that we use as a spring when running.“Our feet were made in part for running,” Lieberman said. But as he and his co-authors write in Nature: “Humans have engaged in endurance running for millions of years, but the modern running shoe was not invented until the 1970s. For most of human evolutionary history, runners were either barefoot or wore minimal footwear such as sandals or moccasins with smaller heels and little cushioning.”For modern humans who have grown up wearing shoes, barefoot or minimal shoe running is something to be eased into, warned Lieberman. Modern running shoes are designed to make heel-striking easy and comfortable. The padded heel cushions the force of the impact, making heel-striking less punishing.“Running barefoot or in minimal shoes is fun but uses different muscles,” said Lieberman. “If you’ve been a heel-striker all your life, you have to transition slowly to build strength in your calf and foot muscles.”In the future, he hopes, the kind of work done in this paper can not only investigate barefoot running but can provide insight into how to better prevent the repetitive-stress injuries that afflict a high percentage of runners today.“Our hope is that an evolutionary medicine approach to running and sports injury can help people run better for longer and feel better while they do it,” said Lieberman, who has created a Web site, to educate runners about the respective merits of shod and barefoot running.The Nature paper arose out of the senior honors theses of two Harvard undergraduates, William Werbel ’08 and Adam Daoud ‘09, both of whom went to Africa with Lieberman to help collect data for this study.Lieberman’s co-authors on the Nature paper are Venkadesan and Daoud at Harvard; Werbel, now at the University of Michigan; Susan D’Andrea of the Providence Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Providence; Irene S. Davis of the University of Delaware; and Robert Ojiambo Mang’Eni and Yannis Pitsiladis of Moi University in Kenya and the University of Glasgow in Scotland.The research was funded by the American School of Prehistoric Research, the Goelet Fund, Harvard University, and Vibram USA.last_img read more

Back In Black – All New Latitude 7212 Rugged Extreme Tablet

first_imgToday we’re proud to announce the immediate availability of our all-new fully-rugged tablet, the Latitude 7212 Rugged Extreme. This evolution of our acclaimed Latitude 7202 rugged tablet brings a balanced mix of forward-looking performance and features, while preserving the backwards-compatibility that we have promised our customers.For field service professionals, law enforcement, military, and utility workers world-wide, we are bringing to market a durable and reliable product that integrates seamlessly into existing enterprise-class IT infrastructures, with no-hassle manageability and end to end security backed by the best supply chain and most comprehensive support program in the market.Lightweight, Powerful, and Securehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VutoOx5oZ3cThe Latitude 7212 Rugged Extreme Tablet delivers up to several times more CPU performance than the previous generation1, thanks to 7th Generation Core i-series processors. Even with this substantial boost in performance, the tablet manages to improve battery life by 29 percent over its predecessor2. Best of all, we managed to shave over half a pound off the design during the process. Additional notable improvements include a FHD 1920x1080p etched Gorilla Glass screen with 10-point glove-touch ability and superior direct sunlight readability, USB 3 Type-C connectivity for one-wire docking and charging, and new and superior accessories.Customer-Focused Design and SupportYou might notice that we don’t have a wide variety of rugged products, and that we don’t update them as quickly as we may some of our other products. That’s on purpose. The rugged market is unique in several ways, and one of the ways is in what exactly our customers demand of us. Our customers want product longevity and forwards and backwards compatibility. We have customers that have asked to purchase models that are 5 years old or more! These customers make significant investments in not just the devices themselves, but the accessory ecosystem as well. That means that moving ports, changing the physical design, or any host of other design choices may mean that you break conformity or continuity with docks and other products that can cost several hundreds of dollars. That can drastically increase your expenses when trying to modernize your technology. To that end, we make sure that we stretch compatibility as long as possible as we iterate on our products, and that we ensure that we only introduce new products when there is clear market demand. Our Rugged portfolio is available with ProSupport Plus with SupportAssist, a monitored, predictive service that helps identify problems and increase uptime, all while minimizing steps and time to get you back up and running should problems occur.Test To FailOne thing that you’ll find about Dell Rugged is that we are always happy to talk about failure. In fact, we push our designs to the breaking point, and then we figure out how to make them better. That’s “testing to fail” – we go beyond just baseline industry specifications and try to find the true limits of our products, because we know that our customers’ experiences don’t fit squarely into a check box. Anytime we can offer that additional margin in durability may mean more than we can know to someone who depends on these products every day. Check out this video tour of our Rugged Lebs to learn about what we mean when we say “test to fail.”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nQlWrf4Zb-ELeveraging Dell’s Engineering StrengthsIn the world-wide market for computers, hardened compute devices are no-where near the largest segment. Because Dell designs and manufactures all types of devices for a wide-range of customers, there are certain advantages we can bring to the table when designing Dell Rugged products. Dell has a unified engineering team; all engineering teams within client computing report up to Senior Vice President of Engineering Ed Ward. He and his team collaborate at all levels across the business to bubble up best practices, lessons learned, and other knowledge that can be shared between team members to enhance the overall strength of our product portfolio. This may be in the shape of one of our larger volume product lines sharing reliability data with our Rugged team for commodity parts like hard drives, memory, and other shared electrical components, while Rugged may help others with various material science advancements and durability practices that lead to better hinges, more durable keyboards, and more scratch-proof displays across the entire line of laptops we offer. This collaboration brings cumulative and critical improvements that wouldn’t be otherwise possible.Battle-Tested in Real World ConditionsRecently Dell Rugged products were put through a gauntlet of testing with the British Army in some of the most demanding conditions. See the results and hear about their experiences in this video.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DtTQj7HOy81 Based on Sysmark 2014, PCMark, and Cinebench testing2 Based on MobileMark 2014 results, configured with 52Wh total capacitylast_img read more

LS Power unit looking to build 1,000MW wind farm in Idaho

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Times-News:A massive wind farm, Idaho’s largest, could break ground in the Magic Valley in 2022. The final size and cost for the Lava Ridge Wind Project isn’t yet known, but the wind farm could be up to 1,000 megawatts with a price tag in the $1 billion range. At 1,000 MW and with hundreds of turbines, the wind farm wouldn’t just be Idaho’s largest, it would be among the biggest in the world.Magic Valley Energy will own Lava Ridge. The company is an affiliate of LS Power, an energy generation and transmission company with projects throughout the U.S. This will be LS Power’s first Idaho wind farm.The wind farm will be on a vast area of Bureau of Land Management land in parts of Jerome, Lincoln and Minidoka counties, mostly south of Idaho Highway 24. Shoshone and Dietrich are the only cities that will be relatively close to the project. The sheer amount of land, and the proximity of that land to major transmission lines, made this an attractive site for a wind farm, said Magic Valley Energy Project Manager, Luke Papez.Most of the land that makes up the wind farm site is used for grazing and recreation. Papez said Lava Ridge will not disrupt those land uses.Most of the region’s wind projects have been on the smaller side, with the exception of the 60-turbine, 138 MW Cold Springs wind project — currently the state’s largest according to the USGS — between Bliss and Mountain Home.Papez said that the land in Jerome, Lincoln and Minidoka counties might not have been able to support a viable wind project just a few years ago. But the wind industry has changed a lot in recent years. “Given the advancements in wind turbine technology and greater efficiency in turbines we’re able to look at sites such as this,” Papez said.[Colin Tiernan]More: Idaho’s largest wind farm planned near Shoshone LS Power unit looking to build 1,000MW wind farm in Idaholast_img read more

In Mexico, Former Colombian President Supports Military Strategy Against Cartels

first_img In a speech in Ciudad Juárez (in northern Mexico), the country’s most violent city, former Colombian president Álvaro Uribe backed Mexico’s anti-drug strategy, indicating that there are security problems that merit the use of military personnel to combat organized crime. “Problems of insecurity are only resolved by paying attention to social development, and the armed forces are needed in order to combat organized crime,” Uribe said, speaking to hundreds of students at the Autonomous University of Ciudad Juárez. In that Mexican city, on the border with El Paso (Texas, United States), 3,100 people were murdered last year. The former Colombian president (2002-2010) also indicated that “the only way to prevent (young people) from being recruited by organized crime is to guarantee them educational opportunity and income.” Since December 2006, the Mexican government has deployed around fifty thousand military personnel and thousands of federal police officers to the locations most affected by the presence of drug trafficking. That strategy is questioned by the opposition and civil-society organizations, which emphasize that it has led to an increase in human-rights violations committed by soldiers and has exacerbated the homicides, of which over 37,000 have been committed since then. The majority of homicides in Ciudad Juárez are attributed by the government to a clash between the Juárez cartel and the Sinaloa cartel led by drug boss Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán.

APF Bill suffers new setback after Dutch Senate postpones reading

first_imgThe Senate wants to wait to receive this legal advice, as well as the Cabinet’s response, before deciding on the reading of the APF Bill.Legal expert Hans van Meerten warned that the deferment – particularly if the Council of State’s advice leads to legal changes – could jeopardise the new legislation’s coming into force on 1 January 2016.The Bill’s postponement also means uncertainty over the exact rules and conditions for the APF will continue.The APF, or general pension fund, is to offer Dutch schemes the option of operating under a single, independent board, but with ring-fenced assets.It is designed to be a third type of pension fund, replacing the API – the defined benefit vehicle for cross-border schemes, which never took off.The introduction of the APF had already been postponed by six months to 1 January 2016.Last April, legal experts warned that the delay would reduce the options for a large number of schemes considering liquidation. Parliamentary approval of a Bill for the new APF pensions vehicle has suffered a fresh setback after the Dutch Senate postponed its reading. The deferment followed an amendment – tabled by MPs Helma Lodders (VVD) and Roos Vermeij (PvdA) – to allow merging industry-wide schemes to keep ring-fenced assets.However, the Cabinet advised against the amendment due to potential risks to the mandatory participation of industry-wide pension funds.The Council of State – the highest legal college in the Netherlands – is assessing the issue at the request of Jetta Klijnsma, state secretary at Social Affairs.last_img read more
