Joe Russo’s Almost Dead Shares Remarkable “Jack Straw” From Their 100th Show [Pro-Shot Video]

first_imgDon’t miss Joe Russo’s Almost Dead when they join Lettuce, The Floozies, The Motet, Manic Science (Break Science x Manic Focus), The Main Squeeze, and Organ Freeman, as well as artists-at-large Oteil Burbridge and Antwaun Stanley of the extended Vulfpeck family. [Buy Tickets] Earlier this month, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead hit their home venue, Brooklyn Bowl, for six shows in ten days, a residency that created a seemingly endless stream of memorable moments and impressive jams that left fans begging for more by the time all was said and done. Each night seemed to get better and better, as the band locked in and loosened up and took their fans for a wild ride through the Grateful Dead‘s catalog.One particularly stand-out moment from the run came on its very first night, March 9th, 2017, which also happened to be the band’s 100th performance under the “Almost Dead” moniker. The band were in a festive mood, opening the night with “Beat It On Down The Line” and “Bertha” on their way to delivering two sets filled with Dead classics. They included a ridiculous “Mama Tried” -> “Help On The Way” -> “Slipknot!” -> “Throwin Stones Jam” -> “New Minglewood Blues” segment that rocked the Bowl to its core, as well as a raucous “Music Never Stopped” -> “Third Stone From The Stone” -> “Music Never Stopped Reprise” that blew the audience’s mind.However, the true standout moment from the evening came near the end of the second frame, when Marco Benevento took the band to uncharted territories with a euphoric and energetic solo on “Jack Straw.” The band harnessed the energy he was creating and built the tension to epic proportions, as the crowd roared with approval. It was a classic JRAD at Brooklyn Bowl moment, something that could only happen with that band at that venue.Thankfully, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead has released a pro-shot video of this version of “Jack Straw” for this week’s edition of “Rad Tracks,” and that video is embedded below for your viewing pleasure.last_img read more

New SEAS effort to focus on grad education in applied computational science

first_imgThe Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) announced a commitment to foster graduate training and research in applied computational science, infusing the SEAS curriculum with new courses and student research opportunities that will focus on the use of computation to power discovery and innovation.The aim of the new effort is to expand Harvard’s educational capacity in applied computational science, a growing field that brings together mathematical models, algorithms, systems innovations, computational techniques, and statistical tools.“From understanding the dynamics of bloodflow to visualizing complex data to tethering low-cost hardware together to create virtual supercomputers, applied computation is at the core of science and engineering,” says Cherry A. Murray, dean of the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and John A. and Elizabeth S. Armstrong Professor of Engineering and Applied Sciences. “We owe it to our students to ensure that SEAS is at the forefront of this exciting field.”Taking advantage of the highly interdisciplinary nature of SEAS and its intellectual connections to departments and schools throughout Harvard, faculty members will enhance existing courses and develop new ones. The courses will be available to Harvard graduate students across the sciences.Efthimios Kaxiras, John Hasbrouck Van Vleck Professor of Pure and Applied Physics, will serve as the director, effective September 1, of a newly created SEAS-based Institute for Applied Computational Science and be responsible for academic oversight. Kaxiras, an expert in materials physics, has long used sophisticated computation techniques to spur advances in biomedical applications.Rather than establishing a new academic or administrative unit, the institute will play a coordinating and capacity-building role, engaging with faculty from all SEAS academic areas.last_img read more

Growing Garden Seeds

first_imgHis strategy worked for two reasons, said Darbie Granberry, a University of Georgiahorticulturist. One, the beans he bought happened to be from an open-pollinatedvariety. And two, dried beans are harvested much the way you need to pick them ifyou want to save seeds from your own garden. In special cases involving heirloom or hard-to-find cultivars, you may need to saveseeds to keep a supply. A south Georgia gardener not noted for grocery shopping made a special trip to thesupermarket last spring. He brought home a package of dried beans. Even open-pollinated varieties may not be worth the trouble of saving seeds. “You just don’t know whether the beans might have come from a hybrid cultivar,” hesaid. “And if they did, it can be a disaster.” “They will probably be nothing like the hybrid parent from which you saved theseeds,” he said. “Don’t waste time by saving seeds from hybrids.” To save seeds from your garden, pick them only after they’re fully ripe, Granberrysaid. For seeds in fleshy fruits, that usually means when the fruit itself is fully ripe.For summer squash, eggplants and cucumbers, this would be two to three weeks afterthey’re ready to eat. “Edible seeds such as corn, peas and beans usually need to ripen several weeks beyondthe tender eating stage,” he said. The seeds will store best in the freezer. But make sure they’re properly dried and in amoisture-proof container. And when you take them out, allow them to warm up beforeyou handle them. Frozen seeds are fragile. Producing a hybrid cultivar requires specific cross-breeding, he said. The seeds fromthis planned crossing are genetically unique. They can’t be reproduced except byrepeating the cross, using the same inbred lines as parents. “Seeds from open-pollinated cultivars will be true to type,” he said, “if they haven’tbeen cross-pollinated with other, different cultivars.” “Seed costs for a garden are usually nominal,” Granberry said. “Saving good-quality,disease-free seeds may require considerable time and effort. And the quality of thesaved seeds is usually less than that of new, commercially prepared seeds.” To be sure you get true-to-type seeds, he said, plant only one cultivar of a specificvegetable. Or vary the planting dates so different cultivars don’t flower at the sametime. You can keep the seeds of self-pollinating cultivars (including beans, peas andtomatoes) genetically pure by planting them 150-200 feet apart. “We don’t normally recommend planting dried beans from the grocery store,” saidGranberry, a vegetable scientist on the Tifton, Ga., campus of the UGA College ofAgricultural and Environmental Sciences. Separate mature seeds from the fruit, cob, hull or other tissue. Then dry them. Rinseseeds from fleshy fruits with water and allow them to dry on paper towels. Bean andpea seeds are best left to dry in the pods. Store the dry seeds in a moisture-proofcontainer at room temperature or cooler. “I like these,” he told his wife. “I’m going to plant them.” And all this summer, asthey picked those delicious beans, she had to admit he wasn’t crazy after all. “Collected, dried and stored properly, most garden seeds will germinate well for one tothree years,” Granberry said. “Onion seeds, though, may remain viable for only eightto 10 months.” If you plant the seeds of the hybrids, you can’t predict the kind of plants you’ll get. “Insect-pollinated plants usually cross-pollinate unless they’re about a quarter-mileapart,” he said. “That’s not feasible for most gardeners.” As for dried beans from the grocery store, it’s best to look for some commercial seeds.”If you can’t find them, though, give it a try,” he said. “It might work out OK.”last_img read more

Trinidad and US Revive Symbol of Collaboration

first_img Teams of divers and sailors from the U.S. Navy were in Trinidad and Tobago in early April, as part of Navy Dive-Southern Partnership Station 2012 (ND-SPS 12), a multinational partnership engagement designed to increase interoperability and partner nation capacity through diving operations. In addition to carrying out community relations projects with local Trinidadians for ND-SPS 12, the naval personnel also restored the main gates to Lapeyrouse Cemetery in Port of Spain as a U.S. Embassy outreach effort in the Caribbean nation. The project was designed to re-memorialize U.S. Navy Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry, a War of 1812 hero, who died of yellow fever off the coast of Trinidad in 1819. The Perry Gateway, as the ornamental metal structure is known, was originally built in 1925 to honor the war hero, mark the entrance to his burial site, and symbolize the strong connections between the United States and Trinidad and Tobago, but over the years it had fallen into disarray. “You can tell they are almost 100 years old because the metal has been broken down over time and there is a lot of rust, pitting and corrosion,” said Navy Diver 1st Class Brian Mouton, assigned to the U.S. Navy’s Mobile Diving and Salvage Unit 2, reported the U.S. Navy. The collaborative effort also included the Port of Spain City Corporation, Trinidad and Tobago’s Ministry of Works and Infrastructure, and the Ministry of Tourism, which helped coordinate the restoration project and carried out maintenance to the sidewalk and area surrounding the gate, according to information from ND-SPS 12 Public Affairs. During the rededication ceremony on April 4, Port of Spain Mayor Louis Lee Sing noted that Lapeyrouse Cemetery is one of the most important “historical and living assets” of the city, and a “treasure chest of unresearched and uncollated data”, reported Trinidadian news site TrinidadExpress.com. For his part, Tourism Minister Dr. Rupert Griffith highlighted the fact that the gateway represents one of the few remaining sites displaying the country’s historical links with the United States.

CargoSmart, Cosco and Tesla in blockchain trial

first_imgThe use of blockchain in the shipping industry is expected to bring numerous benefits as it cuts the red tape and bolsters the efficiency of the supply chain. The GSBN has attracted the interest of liner majors such as CMA CGM, COSCO, Hapag-Lloyd and OOCL as well as, COSCO SHIPPING Ports, Hutchison Ports, Port of Qingdao, PSA International, and SIPG. “The pilot is a key component of our journey towards paperless, trusted, and seamless trade processes at the Port of Shanghai, and it demonstrates the benefits for supply chain stakeholders around the world,” Henry Huang, Executive DGM of Operation & Business Department of SIPG, said. Tech firm CargoSmart Limited has carried out a pilot project with ocean carrier COSCO Shipping Lines using blockchain to share shipment data with a terminal operator in real-time. The goal of the pilot was to minimize consignee and shipping agent verification steps with their ocean carriers in order to speed up the release of sea waybills. Once the GSBN is formally established, CargoSmart plans to conduct similar pilots with Xiamen Ocean Gate Container Terminal (XOCT) and other terminal operators such as those at the Port of Qingdao in China and the Port of Laem Chabang in Thailand.   As a result, truckers are able to pick up their cargo at the terminal faster, helping shippers meet delivery windows. The project is part of the Global Shipping Business Network (GSBN) blockchain consortium, which is pending regulatory approval. The objective is to broaden the scope of the pilot by involving more carriers and terminals, and eventually extending the pilot to other industry participants in the near future. As part of the process, COSCO and SIPG streamlined the cargo release process by enabling Tesla to accelerate its cargo pick up procedures. The network aims to provide a platform for the shipping supply chain participants to work collaboratively on accelerating the digital transformation of the shipping industry. The pilot also allowed SIPG to view a single, trusted source of COSCO’s sea waybill data, enabling faster preparation of delivery orders for consignees and their shipping agents. Apart from COSCO, Shanghai International Port Group (SIPG), and Tesla (Tesla) took part in the project which took place in December 2019. CargoSmart said that it has managed to further enhance the application to display laden gate out, appointment date, and terminal release. “The pilot with SIPG and CargoSmart showcased significant efficiency gains not only in the cargo release process, but also for downstream supply chain planning by presenting a single source of truth for documentation for all involved parties,” Wu Yu, General Manager of Business Process & System Division of COSCO said.last_img read more
