first_imgIn planning for last year’s Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion, a good friend of mine was very excited after we confirmed Hiss Golden Messenger, the critically acclaimed project helmed by North Carolina songwriter MC Taylor.As luck would have it, the guitar player (and North Carolina native) for Hiss Golden Messenger – Ryan Gustafson – was a pretty danged good singer/songwriter in his own right and my buddy Rob was insistent that we reach out and book a solo set for Ryan under his own project, The Dead Tongues.Rob was spot on with this booking. Ryan – with just his guitar – held an early Friday afternoon crowd spellbound with his songcraft. I caught a bit of the set at Cumberland Park, stretched out on the grass, and it was a moment of peaceful repose before I began an incredibly hectic festival weekend.Unsung Passage, the brand new record from The Dead Tongues, drops today. Joined by a score of collaborators, the collection of tunes has cello, banjo, and fiddle providing a delightful sonic backdrop to Gustafson’s stellar and soul plumbing songwriting.I recently caught up with Ryan to chat about the new record, hitchhiking, and some of his favorite songwriters.BRO – You have spent a lot of time backpacking and hitchhiking around the world. What is one thing you learned about yourself out there on your solo travels?RG – It helped me realize that I need people in ways I hadn’t realized. Some of those early moments in deep solitude and aloneness, or in times of vulnerability, taught me to open up to people more than I had previously and that really went on to deepen my relationships with those close to me and in the brief interactions I had with total strangers.BRO – How has playing and working with MC Taylor helped you as a songwriter?BRO – It can be inspiring to get into the other’s creative processes, particularly someone I respect, and I certainly found that to be the case with MC. One thing I took away from the time I spent with Hiss Golden Messenger, and MC in particular, is that you can’t put a timeline on any of this thing, not your career or your songwriting. Sometimes it’s going to take 25 years of touring to start making a living at it, whereas on the other end it might take a month to write an entire album. It’s not about the end of the line. It’s about the journey there. I can’t speak for MC and say that he agrees with that statement, but given the way he’s gone about his life, I bet he would, and that’s a concept he helped illuminate a bit more to me.BRO – Last great book you read?RG – The Argonauts, by Maggie Nelson.BRO – We are featuring “Won’t Be Long” on this month’s Trail Mix. What’s the story behind the song?RG – I think of it as a song about how we can lose ourselves in life sometimes. We can get lost in the fight, whatever that may be, and disconnect in ways. Also, it’s about the journey we’re all on, in some capacity, of not only trying to survive but figuring out what do with this life we have.BRO – IF you were to invite three other songwriters over for a pickin’ party, who would you invite?RG – That’s tough. Andrew Marlin, because he knows so many old-time tunes. Chance McCoy, because he’s such a vibey fiddler. And Julie Byrne, because her album Not Even Happiness gives me chills and takes me to a very deep, watery place.Friends and fans of Ryan Gustafson can catch him tomorrow evening at Pisgah Brewing in Asheville, as he celebrates the release of Unsung Passage. After that, Ryan is off to Europe, with a host of dates across the continent on tap.For more information on The Dead Tongues, some insight into the new record, or when Ryan and his band might end up on a stage near you, be sure to check out his website.Be sure to take a listen to “Won’t Be Long,” along with new tunes from Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs, Bishop Gunn, Keats, and The Promise Is Hope on this month’s Trail Mix.last_img read more

Every year, at least one publication stakes the claim that the next year will finally be that year.In 2013, Mobile Payments World asked: “2013: The Year of the Mobile Wallet?”The following year, Kantar US Insights stated: “2014 Could Very Well be the Year of the Mobile Wallet.”In 2015, Lowestrates.com asked: “Will 2015 Finally Be the Year of the Mobile Wallet?”And in 2016, Affinion titled an article: “2016: The Year of the Mobile Wallet?”Given the inaccuracies of these predictions, it would seem that the use of mobile wallets has simply stalled for the past five years. But looking back a little further, it is amazing to see how radically the mobile wallet space has changed. Going all the way back to 2011, PC Magazine was already asking the question: “Could our wallets be replaced one day soon by our smartphones?”. That article contained an infographic depicting the top contenders at he time to replace credit cards with your smartphone. continue reading »last_img read more

first_imgVan Fossen emphasized the scenarios and numbers are just potential at this point. But despite the possible financial hardships, he and the district are dedicated to being there for students. “It’s all on the table when it comes to these types of reductions potentially, ” he said. To view the a statement by Van Fossen to the MECSD community, click here. “We would be looking at $5.6 million state aid loss for that period of time,” Van Fossen said. “You could argue it’s on the brink of significant devastation if we don’t figure out how to fund schools and try to mitigate this current issue that we are facing right now.” The district currently has reserve funds to use for the next month and a half, and Van Fossen is closely monitoring decisions made in congress to help public schools across the country who face a similar crisis. Van Fossen says the district relies on state aid to make up for half of its budget, and if the reduction becomes a reality, activities like extracurriculars, elective programming and even athletics could be some elements to go. ENDWELL (WBNG) — The Maine-Endwell Central School District could be facing financial devastation as the school may lose out on state funding this year.center_img Governor Andrew Cuomo announced back in March that because of the economic stress put on the state by the coronavirus pandemic, schools could see their state aid cut by 20 percent. “The problem is that it’s not just Maine-Endwell,’ Van Fossen said. “It’s 700 school districts across the state that are looking at the same issue.” While nothing is confirmed as of Aug. 31, MECSD says this possible reduction could mean quite the significant impact for the 2020-21 school year. “If we’re looking at what’s good for society, what’s good for kids, you need a public education system,” Van Fossen said. “Our goal will be to try and continue to provide the best education you can.” “I don’t want to be dramatic, but to use the word ‘catastrophic,’ I’m not saying that lightly,” said superintendent Jason Van Fossen.last_img read more

first_imgMay 16, 2008 (CIDRAP News) – Contaminated dry dog food contributed to a Salmonella outbreak that sickened at least 70 people in 19 states in 2006 and 2007, many of them babies, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported today.An investigation of the outbreak—believed to be the first human Salmonella infections linked to dry pet food—was conducted by public health officials from Pennsylvania and other states, along with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Findings appear in today’s issue of Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR).News of the outbreak came to light in June 2007 when PulseNet, an electronic network for sharing molecular data, identified Salmonella enterica serotype Schwarzengrund infections from a handful of states that had indistinguishable pulse-field gel electrophoresis patterns, according to MMWR.Initial interviews of patients from Pennsylvania who were sickened by the outbreak strain suggested exposure to dogs or dry dog food; 8 (62%) owned one or more dogs, and the other 5 had regular contact with a dog.Dog stool samples and dry dog food collected from some of the homes also tested positive for the same S Schwarzengrund strain. The two dog food samples that tested positive for the outbreak strain were both produced at the same plant in Pennsylvania, though there were two different brands.The last reported illness onset date was October 2007. Most of the 70 confirmed cases were patients from Pennsylvania (29), New York (9), and Ohio (7). Of 61 patients for whom the age was known, 24 (39%) were age 1 or younger. Among 45 patients for whom hospitalization status was known, 11 (24%) were hospitalized, but no deaths were reported.A case-control study suggested that four dry pet food brands were associated with Salmonella illnesses, and all were produced at the same plant. A Sep 4, 2007, CDC update on the outbreak said the contaminated dry dog food brands were produced by Mars Petcare, headquartered in Nashville.On Aug 21, the company voluntarily recalled two of its products that in an environmental investigation yielded the outbreak strain. One was 5-lb bags of Krasdale Gravy dry dog food; the other was 50-lb bags of Red Flannel Large Breed Adult Formula dry dog food. However, MMWR reported that some of the brands that were linked to illnesses were not included in the recall.”Because dry pet food has a 1-year shelf life and all contaminated products were not recalled, contaminated dry pet food might still be found in homes and could provide the potential for causing illness,” the CDC reported.The CDC said that, although an S Schwarzengrund source was never identified at the pet food plant, equipment may have been contaminated, or tainted ingredients may have entered the plant. Though the production of dry pet food usually involves heat treatment as the product is made, it is usually sprayed with a flavor enhancer such as an animal fat.A spate of Salmonella outbreaks in humans has been connected to handling pet treats such as pig ears or food snacks, pet vitamins, and raw-food diets. However, the CDC said the S Schwarzengrund outbreak is the first to be associated with dry pet food.The CDC advises people to wash their hands with warm soapy water for 20 seconds after handling dry pet food, treats, or supplements to avoid getting sick from contaminated pet food. It also advises keeping infants away from pet feeding areas and making sure young children don’t touch or eat the items.CDC.

first_imgLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Rangers on Friday confirmed former Liverpool and England midfielder Steven Gerrard as their new manager, announcing he would join the Scottish Premiership club this summer on a four-year deal.Gerrard, who has previously only worked with Liverpool’s Under-18s, faces a daunting task in trying to compete with Old Firm rivals Celtic, who have just sealed their seventh consecutive title.“I am honoured to become the next manager of Rangers,” the 37-year-old said in a statement on the club’s website. “I have enormous respect for this football club, and its history and tradition. “I can’t wait to start this new journey at Rangers as we look to build on the many successes that this club has achieved.”Chairman Dave King said: “From the very beginning, talks have been extremely positive and we believe that Steven is the right man to drive Rangers forward.“He was extremely impressive throughout our negotiations and we are convinced that he has the necessary knowledge and temperament to lead the club to the success we all desire.”Gerrard was an inspirational captain and Champions League winner in a 17-year career at Anfield but as a managerial rookie he faces a huge challenge to unseat Celtic, who sealed the title on Sunday with a 5-0 thumping of Rangers. He also faces the challenge of outfoxing his former manager at Liverpool in Celtic’s Brendan Rodgers.The arrival of the former England captain will restore some star power to a league that has found it increasingly hard to attract and hold onto top players against the booming television revenues of the Premier League.center_img Rangers are still recovering from the fallout of their liquidation in 2012 and subsequent demotion to the fourth tier of Scottish football.In their second season back in the top flight, Rangers trail Celtic by 13 points, and are locked in a battle with Aberdeen and Hibernian just to finish second.Rangers fans excited by the prospect of Gerrard’s arrival have cited his stature as aiding the Ibrox club’s ability to recruit a better quality player in what is expected to be a busy transfer window.But the club still have to overcome a huge financial disparity with Celtic. Bolstered by revenue from the Champions League, Celtic’s £90 million ($122 million) turnover last year was three times that of their Old Firm rivals.Caretaker manager Graeme Murty, who had been promoted from his role as the club’s under-20 coach, was sacked this week after six months in charge.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

first_imgGovernor Ron DeSantis says he is issuing an executive order for those traveling to Florida from New York and surrounding areas to self-quarantine for 14-days.Gov. DeSantis made the announcement Monday during a press conference in his Tallahassee office.DeSantis says since New York and many surrounding states have been issued mandatory lockdowns, many people are fleeing to Florida which does not have one. While the state of Florida makes a lot of it’s money through tourism, the governor says that at least 100 flights a day leave the New York area which has been called an epicenter for the virus, and head to Florida. Of those flights, at least one person per flight, is infected with the new coronavirus.DeSantis says he has been in touch with federal officials about the flights, however, he has not received a response from them as of yet.For now, DeSantis says travelers arriving from the area will be screened and told they must self-quarantine. DeSantis also said that those travelers will not be allowed to stay with family members or friends because that is how the virus is spread.Additionally the governor stated that anyone found not following quarantine measures is subjected to be arrested on a second-degree misdemeanor charge which may result in a 60-day jail sentence.last_img read more
