On Wednesday night, Trey Anastasio‘s new project, Ghosts of the Forest, made a stop at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston, MA.The new outfit is comprised of Anastasio, his Phish bandmate Jon Fishman (drums), his Trey Anastasio Band cohorts Tony Markellis (bass), Ray Paczkowski (keys), and Jennifer Hartswick (vocals), and relative newcomer Celisse Henderson (vocals), who joined Phish, Hartswick, and more for their 2016 Ziggy Stardust Halloween set.Wednesday’s setlist identically mirrored the band’s set on Tuesday in Albany. In addition to a number of additional new tracks debuted last Thursday at the tour opener in Portland, Tuesday’s performance included all 9 songs set to be included on Ghosts of the Forest’s debut album, which arrives this Friday, April 12th. You can listen to the self-titled lead single from the album here.On Tuesday, ahead of Ghosts of the Forest’s performance at the Palace Theatre, Trey Anastasio took some time out of his afternoon to chat with SiriusXM JamOn host Ari Fink.Trey elaborated on a special live recording plan for Ghosts of the Forest’s New York City shows. He explained,This has been in place all along, but, the idea was to take the two nights and record the shows as a live album at the United Palace Theatre. It will almost be like a regular recording session, with two passes at the shows. For example, when Aretha Franklin was famously recording a record she would do two passes and that was it. Everyone had to play live. So for us, this is like we get two takes at the United Palace Theatre, but most importantly, the full picture of the Ghosts of the Forest document will have our community members and family in the audience. The recording will end up being a live album.Trey also discussed the longevity of the new Ghosts of the Forest material and compared Ghosts of the Forest to his one-off 8 Foot Fluorescent Tubes show in Vermont in 1998. He explained,This is finite. I’m so hugely grateful for the community of friends, family, and audience coming out and supporting us. This is what it is. I have five more shows of this and then I’ll be on Phish tour. It’ll be in the rearview mirror so fast. The last time I did something like this was when Higher Ground opened in Burlington, and my brother-in-law asked if I would play the opening weekend, to which I responded, ‘only if I can start an entirely new band’. That show, I debuted ‘Sand’ and ‘First Tube’ and all these years later those songs are still being played. Probably one or two or some will make it.You can check out some videos from Ghosts of the Forest’s performance in Boston, MA below:Ghosts of the Forest – “Ghosts of the Forest” / “Drift While You’re Sleeping”[Video: Parker Harrington]Ghosts of the Forest – “There’s A Path Above”[Video: Parker Harrington]Ghosts of the Forest – “Ruby Waves”[Video: Parker Harrington]Ghosts of the Forest – “A Life Beyond The Dream”[Video: Parker Harrington]Ghosts of the Forest – “Beneath a Sea of Stars Part 3 (blue)”[Video: Parker Harrington]Ghosts of the Forest – “Pieces in the Machine”[Video: David Guerette]Ghosts of the Forest’s tour continues on Friday, April 12th, at New York City’s United Palace Theatre.

By Mike Isbell Georgia Extension Service Volume XXVII Number 1 Page 22 Math never was one of my favorite subjects in school. I developed my dislike for it because of those problems we had to do on the blackboard.I remember always being last to finish my problem, only to find out I did it wrong. Peggy, the smart one in my class, always got it right.I realize most people my age have long forgotten about prime numbers, lowest common denominators, finding multiples and maybe even dividing fractions.But we’ll always have to do math. And unless you’re like my 91-year old dad, who still knows this stuff, you may have a hard time remembering how to figure out math problems.Math in the real worldThat was the case the other day when a fellow came in to get me to interpret a soil test report he got from the University of Georgia’s soil test lab.Soils in Georgia are seldom perfect. Most can be improved in some way to ensure the best plant growth. A sample of the soil can be tested at the lab, and the report will recommend lime and fertilizer based on the analysis.For home lawns and gardens, the soil report is simple. It will tell you to use X amount, for example, of 5-10-15 or 10-10-10 fertilizer for every 1,000 square feet of lawn or garden. Of course, you still have to figure the square footage of your own lawn or garden, and those things are rarely square. Still, it’s basically easy.Farm ciphering more complexFor commercial and farm use, though, the soil report is a bit harder to decipher. It tells you the pounds of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium you need to improve the nutrient level in the soil.The problem is you don’t just apply nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. You apply something like ammonium nitrate (34 percent nitrogen), superphosphate (20 percent phosphorus) and potash (60 percent potassium).And you thought you’d never use algebra!So you have to use your math skills to calculate how much you actually have to apply. But unless you remember your math, you may be like me at the school blackboard and find out you don’t know how to do this.If you need help with your soil test, come by the Extension office. Together, you and your county agent can figure it out.And if you can’t, let a sixth-grader help you.

By Dialogo September 21, 2009 Colombian President Alvaro Uribe paved the way for the unilateral release of several hostages held by the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, guerrilla group, authorizing opposition Sen. Piedad Cordoba to participate in the handover and dropping its condition that all the captives be released at once. “The unilateral release of captives offered by the FARC is being mediated by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the Catholic Church,” said a brief communique read to reporters by peace commissioner Frank Pearl at the Nariño presidential palace. Uribe, Pearl, Defense Minister Gabriel Silva and National Police director Gen. Oscar Naranjo met Saturday morning in the Bogota military airport with family members of various hostages of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, guerrilla group. According to the communique read by Pearl, during that meeting “the families asked the president to facilitate the release of captives offered by the FARC, without imposing the condition that all kidnap victims be freed simultaneously.” The FARC expressed months ago its willingness to unilaterally free army Corp. Pablo Emilio Moncayo, kidnapped almost 12 years ago, and another soldier, Josue Daniel Calvo, as well has handing over the body of policeman Julian Guevara, who died in captivity. The rebel group demanded that the captives be released to opposition Sen. Cordoba, something Uribe authorized on July 8. But at the time the president put as a condition the simultaneous liberation of all police and soldiers that the FARC want to exchange for imprisoned rebels (the guerrillas speak of 23, the government of 24), as well as the handing over of the remains of three men who died in captivity. On Saturday, however, the government withdrew that condition, and repeated its authorization for Sen. Piedad Cordoba to take part in the liberaton” of Moncayo and Calvo, and the handover of Guevara’s body.
Apr 26, 2009 (CIDRAP News) – Federal officials, speaking at a White House briefing on the swine influenza outbreak today, said the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is declaring a public health emergency, as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed 9 more human cases.The new cases include 8 students from a New York City preparatory school, announced yesterday as suspected cases, and a patient from Ohio, the CDC said on its swine flu update Web page today. The Ohio Department of Health (OHD) said today that the Ohio patient is a 9-year-old who has a mild illness and is recovering at home. The new cases push the US total to 20 patients in five states.The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene said its investigation of illnesses at a Bronx daycare center so far shows no evidence of swine flu and that its surveillance system hasn’t detected an increase in influenza-like illnesses in the city. Saint Francis Preparatory School, the Queens school where the 8 New York patients are students, announced on its Web site that the school will be closed Apr 27 and 28.Calls for preparednessJohn Brennan, the president’s homeland security adviser, said an interagency body of federal officials is meeting daily to regularly update President Obama and to help coordinate the national response to the swine flu outbreak. He said Janet Napolitano, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is the lead federal official, according to the nation’s pandemic influenza plan.Despite the involvement of many federal agencies in disease response activities, Brennan said each American has a role to play. “Clearly we all have individual responsibilities, such as good hygiene, if you’re feeling sick stay home, and using commonsense measures,” he said.Richard Besser, MD, acting CDC director, warned that the United States over time may see more severe disease emerge from the swine flu outbreak. “Viruses are unpredictable and variable over time. What we say and what we learn will change,” he said.In addition to frequent hand washing and staying home when sick, he advised people who are ill to avoid air travel and public transportation.People should start thinking of their own personal preparedness, Besser said. “They need to think about what they would do if this ramps up in their community,” he said. Closing schools if students are found to have swine flu is a smart decision, he said. “We view the public as partners.”Besser said the CDC will be releasing additional guidance later today to help communities and schools respond to additional cases. In addition, discussions are under way on the steps that would be needed to quickly produce a vaccine against this strain of swine flu.At a separate news conference, Dr. Anne Schuchat of the CDC said developing and producing a specifically matched vaccine will take several months.One possibility under discussion is to include a swine flu antigen in the next seasonal flu vaccine, noted Schuchat, director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. The new virus could replace one of the three strains in the vaccine, or it could even be added, resulting in a quadrivalent (four-strain) vaccine.Federal response stepsNapolitano said the public health emergency declaration is a routine measure that allows the federal government to free up state and local personnel and resources to respond to the outbreak. She said it also allows the government to release to states 25% of the 50 million antiviral treatment courses in the Strategic National Stockpile. The Department of Defense will also preposition its 7-million course antiviral stockpile.Napolitano said the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) is monitoring and testing the nation’s food supply for swine flu–related issues. “Everything looks fine,” she said, adding that the USDA is screening and testing livestock to monitor any developments.US Customs and Border Patrol is ensuring that employees working at its border stations have enough personal protective equipment, and the department’s agents are conducting passive surveillance among patients arriving from Mexico at US borders, Napolitano said.Passengers are being asked if they’re sick, and those that report illness are referred for further screening. Similar measures have been implemented at the Transportation Security Administration.At a separate CDC news briefing this afternoon, the CDC’s Schuchat said the agency is preparing “yellow cards” to give to travelers at airports. The cards will contain information about signs and symptoms suggesting possible swine flu.Unpredictability stressedSchuchat stressed the unpredictability and fluidity of the swine flu situation. “We do think this virus is spreading from person to person, and we’re taking steps aggressively to try to slow the spread,” she said. “We are expecting things to change, and we want you to expect change as well.”In response to questions, she said it is “premature” to conclude that the disease in Mexico is different from the one in the United States, even though Mexico has had a number of deaths. “We don’t have many infected people, and we don’t have great information yet,” she said. Though the United States has had no deaths attributed to the virus yet, “I do fear that we will have deaths here,” she added.In response to a question, Schuchat said the CDC believes that “person to person to person” (tertiary) transmission is going on. But the agency has not yet estimated how many additional cases can be expected to result from each case.She said some of the US cases have involved US residents who traveled to Mexico, but she wasn’t sure how many. The two case-patients in Kansas are a married couple, one of whom got sick after a trip to Mexico, and the spouse became ill 2 days later.In reiterating CDC advice about self-protective steps people can take, Schuchat said, “If you’re having symptoms after a trip to Mexico, that’s a good time to go to the doctor and get tested.” Symptoms that may suggest swine flu include a high fever, muscle aches, cough, sore throat, and possibly vomiting and diarrhea—though these could indicate many other possibilities as well, she noted.She repeated earlier CDC assessments that the H1N1 strain in the seasonal flu vaccine is unlikely to offer protection against the new swine H1N1 strain. From the latest tests, “it doesn’t look like there are cross-reacting antibodies from seasonal H1N1 to this particular strain,” she said.Commenting on the age distribution of swine flu cases, Schuchat said US patients range from about 7 years to 54 years. In Mexico, “What we know so far is that many of the patients are in their 20s, 30s, and 40s, but we’re still lining up information about which have an illness actually caused by this virus.” Tests have shown that some of the sick people in Mexico actually had a seasonal flu virus, she said.Though it appears there have been few if any swine flu cases in older people, “It’s really too soon for us to conclude that older persons are spared,” Schuchat said.International developmentsElsewhere, two Canadian provinces today reported a total of 6 confirmed swine flu cases, according to reports from Canwest News Service and Reuters. Nova Scotia health officials said that 2 of its 4 confirmed cases were students attending the same private school who recently visited Mexico. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s chief public health officer, said the patients’ illnesses were mild.In British Columbia, a spokesman for the province’s Centre for Disease Control told Reuters today that officials have confirmed 2 cases.Israel’s health ministry today reported its first swine flu case, in a man who had recently traveled to Mexico and returned with influenza symptoms, Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) reported. He is hospitalized and is in isolation, the report said.According to media reports, health authorities in several countries, including France, Spain, and New Zealand, are testing several travelers who reported flu-like symptoms after traveling to Mexico.Mexican officials have closed schools through May 6, though many schools were closed anyway during the lead-up to the Cinco de Mayo holiday. The US Embassy in Mexico City has suspended all visa and nonessential citizen services from Apr 27 until Apr 30 as a precautionary measure to protect clients and staff, according to an Apr 25 State Department warden message.See also:Apr 26 NYC Department of Health press releaseSaint Francis Preparatory school Web siteApr 26 Ohio Department of Health press releaseApr 25 State Department warden messageCDC swine flu investigation pageCDC swine flu information
Share Share NewsRegional Tax activists focus on Cayman Islands by: – October 6, 2011 Tweet Share 9 Views no discussions Sharing is caring! Image via: taxjustice.netLONDON, England — Tax activists set their sights on the Cayman Islands on Wednesday, demanding that Britain bring one of the world’s best known tax havens to account.A financial secrecy index recently published by the Tax Justice Network has named the tiny Caribbean territory as one of the world’s most secretive financial centres.The islands are a British Overseas Territory, with a governor appointed by Britain, which also retains constitutional and governance oversight – a crucial reassurance for foreign investors who have flocked to Cayman, says the Tax Justice Network.But its economic autonomy and absence of income or corporate taxes has made the Cayman Islands the hedge fund capital of the world, with more than 90,000 companies now doing their business through the islands.The study of 72 countries by the Tax Justice Network listed the islands as the second-most secretive jurisdiction after Switzerland.Meanwhile, in a separate report released on Tuesday, the Tax Justice Network accused the Cayman Islands of playing a “key role” in the 2008 global financial crisis.“Cayman’s relaxed funds law served as the bedrock of the hedge fund industry which now sees Cayman as its top domicile. It also saw Cayman attract a very large share of major new sectors in financial engineering such as private equity, debt and bond issues and securitisation,” it said.Barclays Bank admitted earlier this year to using Cayman Islands subsidiaries to slash its tax bill to just 1 percent.Barclays chief executive Bob Diamond told a select committee in February the bank had used at least 181 offshore subsidiaries in the Cayman Islands to reduce its tax burden to just £113 million despite racking up £11.6 billion in annual profits.Tax Justice Network director John Christensen said that the Cayman Islands and others had been busy “patting themselves on the back” about international information-sharing agreements.But the index demonstrated just how shallow those efforts were, he said. Christian Aid and the End Tax Haven Secrecy campaign are preparing for global protests ahead of G20 sessions in Washington.London activists will protest outside Treasury offices on Friday in a bid to make tax havens a key issue at the main G20 event in Cannes in November.Caribbean News Now
Press Association The Belgium international scored his 50th goal in 100 appearances for the Toffees to earn a point at home to Crystal Palace on Monday night. In the three and a half seasons since leaving Chelsea, initially on loan to West Brom and then Everton, the 22-year-old has bagged a total of 67 in 138 matches. “I just gamble all the time and try to be on the move in the box and as soon as he puts the ball in, most of the time I am ahead of my man,” Lukaku added. “Hopefully we can keep it going – not just with him but the rest of the team. “We all do a shift to help. Everyone just does the role they are doing in the position they play. “I think Ross (Barkley) tries to look for the assists and tries to get goals, Arouna tries to score and put in a shift because he physically overpowers people and Gerry is a one-v-one player and we try to look for him because we know he has that quality. “We have loads of players like Kevin Mirallas, Aaron Lennon and Steven Naismith who bring that extra something to the team. That competition for places is hard but we need to keep fighting if we want to make it.” The club-record £28million spent to bring Lukaku to Everton the summer before last is already looking a shrewd piece of business, especially considering the 22-year-old’s progress in 2015 and the likelihood of him only improving over the next decade. “My hold up-play since the start of the season has been consistent and the technical staff are helping me a lot but I work very hard every day on all aspects,” Lukaku said about his own game. “All the players are doing the bits to help the team and for me it is about the base of football and it helps me a lot, I think I am very consistent in my games. “I am getting more mature as I get older and I just try to help my team out every game.” Everton striker Romelu Lukaku is happy to be living up to the target of a goal every other game he set himself when he was 16. And while his first 100 games goalscoring record for Everton is good enough only for eighth place on the club’s all-time list – topped by Dixie Dean with an incredible 94 – it is a mark of a consistency which Lukaku is keen to maintain. “To be honest that is the standard I’ve set myself since I was 16,” he said. “I always had one out of two so you always put your standard there, but if you can do better you have to do better. “I am privileged to be in this position but I need to keep working, working, keeping my head down and staying focused on the next game. “I don’t feel the pressure now because I am in a flying high moment. “When the game is over I look at it the next day and then I focus on the next game. I don’t really look back to the past, I always try to look forward and live day by day.” Lukaku, for all his personal talent, has benefited hugely – particularly this season – from the wealth of attacking resources manager Roberto Martinez has at his disposal. A partnership with Arouna Kone blossomed at the start of the season but what has really accelerated the goalscoring in recent weeks is the form of Gerard Deulofeu. The Barcelona graduate has provided half a dozen assists for the Belgian since establishing a regular place in the side and Lukaku has seven goals in his last six matches.
