On Friday, it was “Fairies Wear Boots.” Saturday, “Sweet Leaf.” Sunday, “Children Of The Grave.” Last night, Widespread Panic continued their trend of covering a Black Sabbath tune in the encore, bringing out a wild debut version of “Electric Funeral” – in the middle of “Chilly Water” no less.Panic was on hand at the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis, MN, playing to an enthusiastic crowd on a fall tour run that will ultimately land them in Colorado for three nights. With all eyes on the Halloween run, Panic continues to serve up fiery dishes of Southern-fried jam rock. The band has yet to repeat any songs on this tour as well, continuing to mine their deep catalog over the course of these four nights.“Let’s Get Down To Business” opened the show, before the classic Pops Staples cover “Hope In A Hopeless World” came next. The band touted out classics like “Heroes” and “Old Neighborhood,” included a great “Party At Your Mama’s House > Stop Breakin’ Down Blues” and ended the first set with “Conrad.”The band got to jamming in the second half, with “Steven’s Cat” opening and great segues like “Time Zones > Solid Rock” and a “Machine” that would ultimately lead into “Little Kin,” “Travelin’ Light,” “Barstools & Dreamers,” a mini “Drums” jam,” “Red Hot Mama” and “Fishwater.” Of course, you know the ending by now, as Panic brought out “Chilly Water” and segued into their debut of “Electric Funeral,” before returning to “Chilly Water” to end the set.In honor of the debut Black Sabbath cover, listen to the first three Sabbath tunes that the band played in Milwaukee below (though the “Fairies Wear Boots” video is actually from Austin).Fairies Wear BootsSweet LeafChildren Of The GraveYou can see the full setlist below, courtesy of PanicStream.Setlist: Widespread Panic at the Orpheum Theatre, Minneapolis, MN – 10/25/16Set 1 Let’s Get Down To Business, Hope In A Hopeless World, Heroes, Old Neighborhood, Makes Sense To Me, I’m Not Alone, Party At Your Mama’s House > Stop Breakin’ Down Blues, Conrad (60 mins)Set 2 Steven’s Cat, Wondering, Time Zones > Solid Rock, Machine > Little Kin > Travelin’ Light > Barstools & Dreamers > Mini-Drums > Fishwater > Red Hot Mama > Fishwater (80 mins)Encore Chilly Water > Electric Funeral > Chilly Water (16 mins)Notes [‘Electric Funeral’ first time played (Black Sabbath); 4th consecutive show featuring Black Sabbath in encore (Halloween theme?)]
View Comments An interesting Broadway switcheroo is apparently on the cards. Alfie Boe, who will depart the Main Stem revival of Les Miz on February 28, is reportedly flying over to Finding Neverland. According to the New York Post, the Brit will take over for Tony Yazbeck as J.M. Barrie before returning to the U.K. to lead the planned London production of the Broadway.com Audience Choice Award-winning new musical. No word yet on when Yazbeck will depart the show; he only replaced Matthew Morrison as Barrie on January 26. Broadway.com has reached out to a production spokesperson for comment.Boe made his Broadway debut as Rodolfo in Baz Luhrmann’s La Boheme, for which he and his co-stars received a special Tony Award in 2003 for their performances. He played the role of Valjean in the 25th Anniversary Concert at London’s O2 Arena in October, 2010 and went on to lead the original West End production of the show. His live opera appearances include The Pearl Fishers at the English National Opera and Romeo ET Juliette at the Royal Opera House. Boe was recently seen on screen in Mr. Selfridge.Directed by Diane Paulus and featuring a score by Gary Barlow and Eliot Kennedy and a book by James Graham, Finding Neverland follows the story of J.M. Barrie and his relationship with the family of widow Sylvia Llewelyn Davies. Llewelyn Davies’ children eventually became Barrie’s inspiration to write Peter Pan.The cast at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre also currently includes Kelsey Grammer as Charles Frohman (through March 26), Laura Michelle Kelly as Sylvia Llewelyn Davies, Sandy Duncan as Madame du Maurier and Teal Wicks as Mary Barrie.

A boom in demand and an economic need to diversify has many Georgians looking to produce goat meat. To meet the informational need, University of Georgia Cooperative Extension recently graduated its first ever class of Master Goat Farmers.Seventy-five people, mostly from northeast Georgia, attended the program in Athens, Ga., Organizers expected 35 to 40 participants.“I think now we’re going to get a lot more requests for information,” said Banks County Extension coordinator Bob Waldorf, “because a lot of people found out about the Master Goat Farmers program late and realized we are providing education on it.”Elbert County Extension coordinator Clay Talton had 13 farmers travel 45 minutes from Elberton to Athens for the 6-week program. A Coweta County farmer traveled two hours each way.Goat farming “is a relatively new farming system for a lot of people who are here,” Talton said. He used the meetings as a way to gauge the need in his county for more goat production education.“The clientele who need this information are definitely there,” he said.The Master Goat Farmer program covered basic information on nutrition, goat selection, reproduction, birthing, predator control, health, diseases, carcass evaluation and marketing. The main emphasis was on goat meat production, but they also briefly covered dairy goats.Jasper County Extension agent Lucy Ray assisted with the meetings so that she could better help goat farmers in her county.“The goat meat market went down when the economy tanked,” she said, “but it seems to be coming back fairly strong. I had a producer tell me that it’s as strong now as it ever was.”Goat meat production in Georgia is increasing thanks to the influx of people from Hispanic and Caribbean countries and those of Muslim faith. Goats were a $16.4 million business in 2009, almost $10 million more than in 2001.Hispanics are the fastest growing minority group in Georgia, said UGA Extension livestock economist Curt Lacy, who taught the group about marketing. Eight percent of people in Georgia are now Hispanic or of Hispanic decent. Muslims make up 2.1 percent of the state’s population, and most of them are African-Americans.“Everybody in the world eats goats except us,” said Washington County Extension coordinator Sidney Law. “In Atlanta, Ga., 2,500 goats are eaten weekly by somebody.”Producers only need between 5 and15 acres to raise goats, Lacy said. He added that the increase in goat farming is partly due to the “whole movement of going back to simpler, smaller farms, old-school type of food and a renewal and interest in all different types of foods.”“And when you watch Food Network and see people mention goat meat or goat cheese, there’s suddenly an interest there,” Lacy said.Monroe County goat farmer Jerry Norton got into the business one goat at a time.“We had a horse and wanted a goat to be its friend,” he said, after saying his granddaughters and daughter initiated the goat purchases. One goat led to another. Now he and his wife have 15.“The two-year-old and eight-year-old like to say that ‘Poppy’s in the goat business,’” said Norton, who’s a retired insurance adjuster. “We’ve had good times and bad. Now they’re all like dogs running around. They want to get in the golf cart with me, and we take them on walks in the evening.”Norton raises goats for meat. But before he could sell them, he and his wife had to figure out how to keep them healthy and alive. They initially “would get on the Internet and learn stuff, and my wife read veterinary books, and we got lots of hands-on learning experience,” he said.Now they’ve got more experience and, with the start of the Master Goat Program, more people to turn to for information.Because of the interest, Extension agents are planning a second Master Goat Farmer program. They’re considering starting goat meat education programs in their own counties, which include Jackson, Jasper, Greene, Banks, Elbert, Stevens, Habersham, Madison and Franklin.For more information about goat farming, call your county Extension office at 1-800-ASK-UGA1 or visit http://www.caes.uga.edu/Publications/pubDetail.cfm?pk_id=6272&pg=np&ct=goat&kt=&kid=&pid=.
FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Oilprice.com:Renewable energy will march forward this year, due to “remorseless reductions in the costs of solar and wind electricity and of lithium-ion batteries,” Angus McCrone, the chief editor of Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) wrote in a commentary. Clean energy will also make huge strides because of the “widening realization on the part of investors and corporations that there is this ‘sustainability thing’ and, for reasons of self-interest, they just need to do it,” McCrone added.Falling costs for wind and solar are great news, but they also make the headline investment figure appear less impressive. BNEF sees total clean energy investment hovering at around $300 billion, down from 2018’s $332.1 billion. But while investment totals will be down this year, as time marches on and costs continue to fall, every dollar invested brings more renewable energy capacity.The same will be true in 2019. For instance, BNEF predicts that the world will add between 125 and 141 gigawatts (GW) of new solar this year, sharply up from the ~109 GW added in 2018. For wind, BNEF sees capacity additions of 70 GW in 2019, up from 53.5 GW last year.One notable development is the rise of offshore wind. It will still remain a fraction of the wind installation total, but “eye-catching price drops” will make it a “must-have” technology this year, BNEF analysts argue. Europe is set to install 4.9 GW of offshore wind, with Asia installing 3.5 GW – both new record highs. BNEF says this will be the last year that Europe leads in offshore wind. From here on out, Asia will take over as the global leader.Energy storage hits a milestone in 2019 as well, adding 10 GWh of new capacity for the first time. China will “establish a truly global presence” in the energy storage market, with automakers increasingly seeking out Chinese suppliers. Average battery prices could fall below $150/kWh this year, down from $176/kWh last year, which itself was a record low.More: “Remorseless’’ cost reductions drive renewable energy revolution BNEF estimates new global solar installations in 2019 at 125GW, or more

He also pleaded guilty to grand larceny for stealing more than $206,000 in a check scheme.Prosecutors said the 47-year-old man, who owns Botanica, a religious supply store on Mott Street, gave the victim a cup containing a liquid mixed with Lorazepam, an anti-anxiety medication, and told him to drink it on Jan. 3, 2012.After he was arrested three months later, Miller’s family helped him concoct a $15,000 murder-for-hire plot, but an informant tipped off investigators before they could hire a hit man to make the victim’s death look like a robbery, authorities said.Miller’s mother, Mary, a secretary at a local high school, had stolen the personal records of the intended victim from the school in an attempt to facilitate the plot, prosecutors said. Mary and Miller’s sister, Ann, both pleaded guilty to conspiracy in 2013.In addition to the sex crime and attempted hit, investigators also found that Miller was using shell companies he created to defraud three check-processing companies out of a combined $140,224 in 2009 and 2010, prosecutors said.Those same years, he also used fake checks from nonexistent companies to con $66,180 worth of merchandise out of two companies, one of which furnishes office supplies and the other being a computer supply firm, authorities said.Judge Angelo Delligatti is expected to sentence Miller on June 4 to nine years in prison and 10 years of post-release supervision. Prosecutors had asked the court to sentence Miller to a maximum of 18 years.
In Minneapolis, hundreds of protesters blocked Interstate 94 and the police made arrests, with demonstrators taking to social media to say that the officers had “kettled,” or trapped them there, to prevent them from dispersing.Protests also cropped up in Chicago, New York, Philadelphia and other cities. Some protesters called for all votes to be counted, but in other places their agenda was not entirely clear. Sometimes people on the same side of the election pursued opposing goals. In Detroit, a pro-Trump demonstration called for a halt to vote counting — echoing the president’s unfounded claim that illegally cast ballots were being tallied to flip the race to his opponent, Joseph R. Biden Jr.- Advertisement – But in Maricopa County, Ariz., where Mr. Trump trails Mr. Biden, the president’s supporters took the opposite tack. They gathered outside the elections office and chanted, “Count those votes!” PORTLAND, Ore. — Protests arose around the country as the ballot tabulation in the final battleground states continued, with some demonstrators demanding that every vote be counted and others insisting that the counting be shut down.In Portland, where a “Count Every Vote” demonstration merged with another one focused on racial justice and police brutality, some people broke away from the group and smashed storefront windows in the downtown area. The police labeled the incidents a riot and swarmed in.- Advertisement – – Advertisement –
May 19, 2009World’s novel H1N1 cases near 10,000The global number of novel H1N1 cases climbed to 9,830 cases in 40 countries, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported today. The count includes 3,648 cases and 72 deaths from Mexico, 5.123 cases and 5 deaths in the United States (as of yesterday), 496 cases and 1 death in Canada, and 9 cases and 1 death in Costa Rica. No new countries were added to the list.[WHO update 33]US novel flu cases rise steadilyThe number of confirmed and probable novel H1N1 cases in the United States grew to 5,469, of which 6 were fatal, from 48 states and the District of Columbia, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported today. No new states reported confirmed cases. Alaska, West Virginia, and Wyoming remain the only states that have reported no cases. The May 17 death of a New York man is included in today’s CDC total.[Current CDC numbers]Flu role suspected in deaths of St Louis man, New York childOfficials from St Louis County, Mo., announced that a 44-year-old man who recently traveled to Mexico and was diagnosed as having a novel H1N1 infection died today, the Associated Press (AP) reported. An autopsy is under way to determine if an underlying condition contributed to his death, though the man appeared to be otherwise healthy. Meanwhile, other media outlets reported that New York City officials are investigating a possible novel flu link in the death of a 16-month-old boy.[May 19 AP story]Japan shutters 2,400 more schools to slow virus spreadJapanese officials have closed more than 4,400 schools in two prefectures that have reported dozens of novel H1N1 cases, up from about 2,000 closures reported yesterday, Agence France-Presse (AFP) reported. The affected areas are Osaka and Hyogo, in the central part of Honshu, Japan’s main island. The country now has 193 confirmed cases, and experts said the virus has probably already spread to Tokyo, the world’s most populated urban area.[May 19 AFP story]US mask, respirator stockpiles fall shortThe US stockpile contains only 39 million surgical masks, far short of the 27 billion federal officials say would be needed in a serious influenza pandemic, Time magazine reported. The nation’s supply of 80 million respirators also falls short of the government’s 3 billion estimate. Also, most of the masks are made in Mexico or China, and it’s unclear if the few US-based companies could supply enough for a serious outbreak. The CDC has said the benefits of wearing surgical masks are unclear.[May 19 Time magazine story]
