After releasing a cryptic video with dates and vague locations last week, Pretty Lights continues to roll out tour date announcements for what is being dubbed the PL Festival. This week, we’ve been treated with new pieces to the puzzle, with Monday releasing early August dates at the Bank Of New Hampshire Pavilion, Tuesday detailing mid-August plans at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and today confirming a third weekend in Telluride, CO.Set to take place August 26 & 27 at the beloved Telluride Town Park, the weekend is specified to only contain Pretty Lights, with special guests “The Pretty Lights Family.” Unlike the previously announced weekends, this one has no support listed at this time. In any event, we look forward to an intimate weekend, or “evenings with,” Pretty Lights and the band he’s organized for the tour, featuring Alvin Ford Jr., Brian Coogan, Chris Karns, and Borahm Lee. Check out what happened last time they were all together in Telluride in this video of “Only Yesterday.”Watch the third out of five announcement videos below:Tickets currently on-sale now.
The opening day of Jazz Fest is always a great time to celebrate the Neville Brothers, as their storied history with the event spans many decades. Unfortunately, today we’re mourning the loss of Neville Brothers saxophonist Charles Neville, who passed away Thursday at the age of 79.Of course, Charles and the rest of the Neville Brothers’ storied history goes well beyond Jazz Fest and even extends to the realm of the Grateful Dead. The Nevilles collaborated with the Dead on a few occasions back in the 1980s, including during one of the band’s rare New Orleans performances (October 18, 1988, at the Lakefront Arena). Another notable collaboration came during the Grateful Dead’s 1987 New Year’s Eve show at the Oakland Coliseum Arena, though it technically took place at the very beginning of 1988.The 1987 New Year’s Eve show, which was broadcast live on pay-per-view and later immortalized on the Ticket to New Years VHS release, featured an opening set from the Neville Brothers, but their contribution didn’t stop there. The entire group—Aaron, Art, Cyril, Charles, and guitarist Brian Stoltz—returned to help the Dead with a run of four covers for the night’s encore. You can watch the entirety of their sit-in, which included renditions of New Orleans classic “Iko Iko”, Caribbean favorites “Man Smart (Woman Smarter)” and “Day-O (The Banana Boat Song)”, and Bob Dylan‘s “Knocking On Heaven’s Door”, below.Grateful Dead with The Neville Brothers (New Year’s Eve 1987)[Video: Dan G1]

FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Argus Media:Spanish utility Viesgo has requested the closure of its 570MW Los Barrios coal-fired plant, the biggest of the three coal units that were still expected to continue operating in mainland Spain after 2022.The decision comes just four months after the company told Argus it planned to keep Los Barrios operational, suggesting the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on Spanish coal-fired power demand may have contributed to the change in strategy. Viesgo said it could not determine an estimated closure date for the plant as the process was subject to several administrative procedures and authorisations.Data from Spanish power grid operator REE show that coal-fired generation in the southwest province of Cadiz — where Los Barrios is the sole coal generator — reached minus 4.78GWh in the first five months of this year, which means the unit consumed more electricity than it produced during the period. This compares with a generation of 493GWh — or a 136MW hourly average — in January-May 2019.Coal-fired generation in May reached only 245GWh, or 330MW, in mainland Spain, down by 28.6pc year on year and a new record low. The volume represented just 1.4pc of the energy mix, also a historical minimum share.Viesgo’s decision means that Portuguese utility EDP’s 562MW Abono 2 and 346MW Soto de Ribera 3 are the only coal-fired plants that would continue operating in mainland Spain. EDP told Argus last month that it has been considering plans to shut down Soto de Ribera 3 by 2022, which means Abono 2 might become the sole coal unit in the peninsular system in the near future.A total of 15 of the existing 25 coal-fired units in mainland Spain are expected to close by 30 June this year, ahead of stricter EU-wide industrial emissions standards coming into force on 1 July. These units have a combined capacity of 4.87GW, more than half of the total 9.21GW. Another 2.5GW — Spanish utility Endesa’s 1.1GW Litoral de Almeria and 1.4GW As Pontes — could close by the end of 2021.[Juan Weik]More: Spain’s Viesgo U-turns and now plans to shut coal plant Another coal plant in Spain headed for retirement
In order to help stop illegal smuggling of drugs, money and people throughout Central America, the navies from many countries including the United States and the Netherlands, are working jointly toward this end. As part of the international effort to improve security and stability in the region, the Netherlands Navy ship HNLMS Rotterdam deployed to the Caribbean Sea in early May 2011, to patrol the coast of Central America. The Rotterdam will remain on this effort until the summer, when Netherlands Navy ship Johan de Witt, her sister ship, arrives to relieve her. HNLMS Rotterdam is a Landing Platform Dock- class amphibious ship equipped with a large helicopter dock, a deck for large landing craft, an operation theater and a complete Class II hospital on board. The lead ship of the Royal Netherlands Navy was launched in 1997. By Dialogo May 13, 2011
As we reflect on this past year and share with family and friends during this holiday season, I find it beneficial to include my professional life in my reflections. What worked, what didn’t work?

In order to offer another excursion and recreational destination for local residents and visitors, the Public Institution “Krka National Park” arranged the trail and the Vuković floor lookout, for which HRK 457.088,60 was spent. Little by little, a ring of hiking trails and cycling routes is being created around the Krka River, which opens up numerous opportunities for active leisure and develops a different form of visiting the Krka, which includes extended stays, active tours and true nature lovers., pointed out the director of the Public Institution “Krka National Park” mr. sc. Krešimir Šakić. From the Vuković floor lookout point, there is a view of the island of Visovac, the pearl of Croatian natural and cultural heritage, located in the middle of Visovac Lake, a gentle extension of the river between two waterfalls, Roški slap and Skradinski buk. The Franciscan monastery and church on the island form a unique ambient whole in a beautiful landscape, with a view of the tall apple trees that surround the island. The visitor sees all this when he looks to the right, and when he looks to the left he sees, cut into the vertical, rough rocks of the Krka river canyon, the gorge Među gredama, a 500 m long passage from Visovac Lake to Roški slap.

NZ Herald 7 February 2020Family First Comment: Disturbing!But the natural consequence of a porn-soaked culture without restraint…“In recent years, incidents have soared of passengers viewing hardcore pornography on their personal devices (even in front of children) in tight, closed quarters, leaving fellow passengers and flight crew feeling unsafe, emotionally triggered and victim to sexual harassment.”It’s an unusual in-flight issue that’s become such a problem, airlines have been forced to come up with strategies to deal with it.And that issue is passengers who watch porn mid-flight.Airlines are reporting an increasing number of passengers who watch X-rated content on their personal devices on flights, sometimes in front of children.Now, in an extraordinary step, major American carrier United Airlines is giving its cabin crew extra training to help stop passengers watching porn on planes.The airline was forced to invest in the extra training after it briefly made the US National Centre on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) 2019 “Dirty Dozen List”, which names and shames companies that “facilitate sexual exploitation” in the United States.United was the only airline to make the list.The NCOSE said there was a “sexually hostile environment” on board because of people watching porn on board.READ MORE: https://www.nzherald.co.nz/index.cfm?objectid=12306749&ref=twitter (behind paywall)
