Wildlight Goes All-Acoustic In Reworking Of ‘The Tide’ Album [Review/Full Stream]

first_imgWildlight’s The Tide acoustic redux invokes a sound and era that can be overlooked within our technologically-fueled society. The delicate performances harken back to a period and lifestyle rooted in the past; yet at once paving a path back toward lost innocence and social responsibility. This album serves as reminder that we can exist in that paradigm today. Reimagining the tunes from their stimulating sophomore opus as a stirring blend of global instrumentation, folk sensibilities, and indigenous influence, Ayla Nereo and David Sugalski (The Polish Ambassador) have crafted a statement bathing in sonic serenity.Listen to the album below.In tandem with the artists’ reverence, The Tide places a glistening spotlight on the earth, community, gratitude, healing and romance. Sugalski enlists a vibrant team of collaborators to facilitate an energetic transformation; The Tide’s formerly meditative dance music evolves elegantly into a softer, medicinal archetype. The creative ingenuity of lead producer Ryan Herr is a revelation. Sugalski’s compadre courts a courageous cavalcade, among them Tyson Leonard and Jesse Hendrix. The dexterous multi-instrumentalists employ a myriad of organic sounds to soothe and serenade with savoir-faire: banjo, violin, accordion, saxophone, flute, toy piano, melodica, duduk, mandolin, djembe, didgeridoo, kalimba, acoustic guitar and upright bass. These assembled artisans in antiquity deliver the listener to an intersection of love, hope, and awareness.Ayla Nereo’s multi-faceted melodies give rise to Wildlight’s impassioned vision and focused mission, the promise of our better tomorrow. From start to finish, Nereo’s femininity is found summoning the intrinsic power of her expressive voice. “Rain” and “From the Ground Up” feature poignant pleas in siren song: her angelic vocal tones calling to the spirits, these are soundtracks to the garden we have dreamt. On “The Crucible,” Nereo unveils a resolute rap and hauntingly gorgeous refrain, at once emotive and inspiring.”Ours to Give” is a soothing, warm lament on the benevolence within us all. “Holy Dust” features her aching, arching soprano, while “Grace, Fully” finds Nereo’s layered vocals basking in a bed of blissful banjo and lulling violin.Wildlight has created an organic, chilled vibe in rewiring their own previous brilliance. Filled with mystifying traditional music, this testimonial transmits a clear and focused intention; to empower community, heal wounds, celebrate love, and awaken the heroic human spirit. Full of evergreen hymns tuned to the magic of mother nature, The Tide (original) is revival strong enough to move mountains. Stripped of bass and bombast, this riveting reprise stays sublime in shadowed valleys.last_img read more

Renewable generation sets new records on consecutive days in Australia’s main grid

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Renew Economy:Output from wind and solar have surged to two new record highs in the National Electricity Market over the past 24 hours, with sunny and windy conditions combined to push their combined output towards 12 gigawatts, or nearly 50 per cent of total demand.The Australian Energy Market Operator, which recently released its 20-year blueprint mapping a path to up to 94 per cent renewables by 2040, celebrated the first record with a Tweet that noted the combined output of wind farms, and small and large-scale solar generation, exceeded 11,700MW for the first time. That smashed a record set back in November 2019, where combined wind and solar output hit 11,300MW.But it has taken less than 24-hours for the record to be broken yet again.According to OpenNEM, the combined output from wind and solar sources surged to a new high shortly before 11am, pushing past 11,830MW of combined output. It might have been even higher, given the delays and constraints that have had a heavy impact on wind and solar developers, and by industry estimates has reduced the anticipated output by an average of more than 700MW.At noon on Friday, renewables (including hydro) supplied 48.6 per cent of all electricity generated in the National Electricity Market, which covers New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania and the ACT. The prevailing conditions could see the market share of renewables surpass 50 per cent for the first time since 2019 over the coming weekend as demand reduces.Renewable energy output across the entirety of the NEM has averaged more than 33 per cent over the last 24-hours, with windy yet sunny conditions prevailing across Australia’s eastern states, and is approaching a new daily record, which was set on 12 November 2019 at 34.3 per cent.[Michael Mazengarb]More: Wind and solar output surge to new record high in main grid Renewable generation sets new records on consecutive days in Australia’s main gridlast_img read more

2 Stabbed During String of Lake Ronkonkoma Robberies, Cops Say

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York A 23-year-old Yaphank man was arrested Wednesday for allegedly stabbing two men during a string of armed robberies at a Lake Ronkonkoma shopping center in late June, Suffolk County police said. Jed Stout was charged with robbery, two counts of attempted robbery and two counts of assault for the alleged armed robberies that occurred between June 24 and June 29 at the same shopping center on Portion Road. Police said in all three incidents, Stout allegedly threatened to stab his victims if they refused his demands. On June 24, Stout targeted a 43-year-old man who was leaving a Wells Fargo ATM and allegedly threatened to cut the man if he refused to give him money, police said. The man gave up his wallet and was not injured. Four days later, Stout visited the same ATM, police said, and allegedly stabbed a 64-year-old man in the arm after he refused to hand over money. One day later, a 75-year-old man taking out the garbage in the parking lot of the shopping center was approached by Stout, who allegedly slashed the man in his face after he said he did not have money, police said. An investigation by Sixth Squad detectives led police to Stout. He was arrested Wednesday, a little more than two months after the alleged incidents occurred. He was scheduled to be arraigned Thursday at First District Court in Central Islip.last_img read more

Inside Marketing: Why credit unions need to have media sections on their websites

first_img 9SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr I’ve visited hundreds of credit union websites over the years, conducting research for various projects and reviews. Many of them are excellent. In the last few years, the quality has gone through the roof in a good way with compelling graphics, helpful text and vastly improved layouts and navigation.But there’s one section that seems to be lacking on most of these websites: a media or press section for reporters and editors.Why? Well, here you can get a quick history of recent company activity, milestones, new customers/clients, issues and trends or events. It’s a one-stop location for a quick glance at everything your credit union in this case is doing.

Gobernador Wolf: 12 condados más pasan a la fase verde el 26 de junio

first_img June 19, 2020 Gobernador Wolf: 12 condados más pasan a la fase verde el 26 de junio Español,  Press Release,  Public Health En el día de la fecha, el Gobernador Tom Wolf anunció que 12 condados más pasarán a la fase verde de reapertura por la pandemia de COVID-19 a las 12:01 a.m. del viernes 26 de junio. Los condados incluyen a Berks, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Erie, Lackawanna, Lancaster, Lehigh, Montgomery, Northampton, Philadelphia y Susquehanna.El condado de Philadelphia cumplió con los criterios y pasará a la fase verde del estado el 26 de junio; sin embargo, los funcionarios locales mantendrán algunas restricciones adicionales hasta el 3 de julio. La Administración Wolf ha apoyado algunas solicitudes específicas de los condados en relación con más restricciones durante el proceso de reapertura gradual.“Cuando estos 12 condados cambien de fase el 26 de junio, tendremos a casi todos los condados en fase verde”, dijo el Gobernador Wolf. “Es un testimonio para los muchos residentes y empresas que se han sacrificado en los últimos tres meses para quedarse en casa y cumplir con la guía que el estado ha brindado para proteger tanto vidas como medios de vida. A medida que comenzamos a reabrir, insto a que todos se mantengan alerta y continúen con el distanciamiento social para mantener el impulso de la mitigación que tenemos en marcha”.El único condado que no está listo para pasar a la fase verde el 26 de junio es el Condado de Lebanon. Haciendo caso omiso del consejo de expertos en salud pública y de las órdenes del Gobernador Wolf y la Secretaria de Salud, Dra. Rachel Levine, que tenían como objetivo mantener saludables a los residentes de Pennsylvania, los comisionados del condado de Lebanon votaron 2 a 1 a lo largo de las líneas partidarias para reabrir prematuramente a fines de mayo. Ahora, el condado enfrenta un aumento en los casos y no puede pasar a la fase verde.“La decisión partidaria y política del condado de Lebanon de ignorar a los expertos en salud pública y reabrir prematuramente está teniendo graves consecuencias para la salud y la seguridad de los residentes del condado”, dijo la Dra. Levine. “El número de casos ha aumentado y el condado aún no está listo para la reapertura. El condado de Lebanon ha perjudicado sus avances al reabrir antes de tiempo. Debido a esta decisión irresponsable, los residentes del condado de Lebanon tienen un mayor riesgo de contraer COVID-19”.El panel de información sobre los casos por condado y los criterios para considerar la reapertura se pueden encontrar aquí.El Proceso de reapertura de Pennsylvania del Gobernador Wolf describe las restricciones vigentes para los condados en fase amarilla o fase verde. A partir de hoy, hay 54 condados en fase verde y 13 condados en fase amarilla.A medida que los condados reabren, Pennsylvania continúa viendo una disminución constante de los casos, un indicador positivo de que su plan de reapertura gradual y medido está funcionando para lograr equilibrar la salud pública y la recuperación económica.El análisis de los CDC de los datos de casos propios del estado coloca a Pennsylvania entre solo tres estados que tienen una disminución constante de los casos durante 42 días. Los otros dos estados son Hawaii y Montana.De acuerdo con un análisis del New York Times, los nuevos casos de COVID-19 están disminuyendo en menos de la mitad de todos los estados y territorios de EE. UU.“Al realizar pequeñas medidas recomendadas por los CDC y el Departamento de Salud de Pennsylvania, podemos continuar interrumpiendo las líneas de transmisión del virus incluso al tiempo que reanudamos nuestras actividades diarias”, dijo el Gobernador Wolf. “Cosas como lavarnos las manos, llevar nuestra propia agua a las prácticas deportivas y, por supuesto, usar máscaras”.De acuerdo con estudios revisados por pares en el New England Journal of Medicine y un estudio reciente de las universidades de Cambridge y Greenwich, el uso de máscaras evita que las personas contagien COVID-19 a otras personas sin saberlo, y puede ser crucial a medida que nos preparamos para un posible rebrote del virus en el otoño.Fase amarillaA partir del 19 de junio, estos 13 condados pasan a la fase amarilla: Berks, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Erie, Lackawanna, Lancaster, Lebanon, Lehigh, Montgomery, Northampton, Philadelphia y Susquehanna.En la fase amarilla se alivian algunas restricciones en el trabajo y en la interacción social, al tiempo que otras, como el cierre de escuelas, gimnasios y otros centros de recreación en lugares cerrados, salones de belleza y manicura, al igual que las limitaciones en torno a las grandes reuniones, permanecen vigentes.La finalidad de esta fase es comenzar a reactivar la economía mientras se vigilan de cerca los datos sobre de salud pública con el fin de garantizar que la propagación de la enfermedad permanezca contenida en la mayor medida posible.Restricciones respecto del trabajo y la congregaciónEl teletrabajo debe continuar cuando sea factibleLas empresas con operaciones en persona deben cumplir las órdenes de seguridad para las empresas y en los edificiosEl cuidado de niños puede abrir conforme a la guíaLas restricciones para los servicios de atención conjunta y las prisiones siguen vigentesLas escuelas pueden brindar instrucción en persona solo de acuerdo con la guía del Departamento de EducaciónRestricciones socialesSe levanta el orden de quedarse en casa que tenía la finalidad de lograr una mitigación agresivaLas reuniones grandes de más de 25 personas están prohibidasEs obligatorio el uso de máscaras al ingresar a un negocioLa venta minorista en persona está permitida; se prefiere la entrega en la acera y el envíoLa recreación en lugares cerrados, centros de salud y bienestar y servicios de cuidado personal (como gimnasios, spas, salones de belleza, salones de manicura y otras entidades que ofrecen terapia de masaje), y todos los entretenimientos (como casinos, teatros) permanecen cerradosLos restaurantes y bares pueden abrir para ofrecer servicios al aire libre, además del servicio de comidas para llevar y para enviarFase verdeA partir del 19 de junio, estos 54 condados están en la fase verde: Adams, Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Bedford, Blair, Bradford, Butler, Cambria, Cameron, Carbon, Centre, Clarion, Clearfield, Clinton, Columbia, Crawford, Cumberland, Dauphin, Elk, Fayette, Forest, Franklin, Fulton, Greene, Huntingdon, Indiana, Juniata, Jefferson, Lawrence, Lycoming, Luzerne, McKean, Mercer, Mifflin, Monroe, Montour, Northumberland, Perry, Pike, Potter, Schuylkill, Snyder, Somerset, Sullivan, Tioga, Union, Venango, Warren, Washington, Wayne, Westmoreland, Wyoming y York.Luego de que un condado pasa a la fase amarilla, es supervisado de cerca para detectar el aumento del riesgo, como los brotes significativos. Si el riesgo general permanece mitigado durante 14 días, el condado pasará a la fase verde.La fase verde alivia la mayoría de las restricciones al levantar las órdenes de quedarse en casa y cierre de empresas para permitir que la economía reabra estratégicamente al tiempo que se continúa priorizando la salud pública. Algunas restricciones, como el uso de máscaras, sí permanecen vigentes.Es importante continuar supervisando a los indicadores de la salud pública y ajustar las órdenes y las restricciones según sea necesario para garantizar que la propagación de la enfermedad se mantenga al mínimo.Restricciones respecto del trabajo y la congregaciónSe recomienda enfáticamente la continuación del teletrabajoLas empresas con operaciones en persona deben seguir los requisitos actualizados de seguridad en las empresas y en los edificiosTodas las empresas que operan con una ocupación del 50% en la fase amarilla pueden aumentar a una ocupación del 75%El cuidado de niños puede abrir conforme a la guíaLas restricciones para los servicios de atención conjunta siguen vigentesLas restricciones con respecto a las prisiones y hospitales se determinan de manera individual de acuerdo a cada instituciónLas escuelas están sujetas a las guías de los CDC y del estadoRestricciones socialesLas reuniones grandes de más de 250 personas están prohibidasEs obligatorio el uso de máscaras al ingresar a un negocioLos restaurantes y bares abren al 50% de su ocupaciónLos servicios de cuidado personal (que incluyen peluquerías y barberías) abren al 50% de su ocupación y solo con cita previaLa recreación en interiores, los centros de salud y bienestar, y los servicios de cuidado personal (como gimnasios y spas) abren con una ocupación del 50%.
