On Thursday night, July 26th, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong made their way to Paddy’s Beach Club in Westerly, RI for a performance with support from Montana jam-grass quartet Kitchen Dwellers.After the Kitchen Dwellers’ well-received opening set, which they capped with a bluegrass cover of the Grateful Dead‘s “New Speedway Boogie”, Pigeons cast off on their set with “Sail On”. Psychology vehicle “Time to Ride” got the show moving from there, followed by renditions of “Fox & Toad” (Pizazz) and “Bad For You” (Pleasure).Next, the show took a turn into Phish-y territory, as Pigeons dove into “Down With Disease”, the phan-favorite off 1994’s Hoist. The band stuck with the Phish from there, segueing into a riotous “Run Like An Antelope” cover, with the lyrics amusingly altered to “bob like a pigeon out of control.” Pigeons Playing Ping Pong have similarly woven “Down With Disease” into their set before, including at New Haven, CT’s Pacific Standard Tavern in 2015 and during their Domefest 2017 Phish/Grateful Dead “Undercover” set, when they mashed-up “DWD” with “Shakedown Street” for a cleverly executed hybrid jam dubbed “Shakedown With Disease”.The Phish medley eventually slid into one of Pigeons’ own go-to originals, “Melting Lights”, which in turn fed into “King Kong”. From there, a trio of upbeat, beach-appropriate tunes (“Sunny Day”, “Fun In Funk”, and “Ocean Flows”) brought the set to a close. Finally, the band returned for a memorable encore, which saw them work through “J-Town” and into “E-Funk” before landing in a “Down With Disease” reprise to round out the performance.Next up for Pigeons Playing Ping Pong is a performance tomorrow, Saturday, July 28th at Tumble Down at Waterfront Park in Burlington, VT.Watch a selection of clips from Pigeons Playing Ping Pong’s Paddy’s performance below [Note: As of now, no video of the Phish covers has surfaced online, but we will update this article as soon as it becomes available]:“Burning Up My Time” Setlist: Pigeons Playing Ping Pong | Paddy’s Beach Club | Westerly, RI | 7/26/18Set: Sail On, Time to Ride, Fox & Toad, Bad For You, Down With Disease^ > Run Like An Antelope^* > Burning Up My Time > Melting Lights > King Kong, Sunny Day, Fun In Funk, Ocean FlowsE: J-Town > E-Funk > Down With Disease^Notes:^Phish Cover*”Bob Like A Pigeon out of control” “Fun In Funk” “Melting Lights”
TVA’s coal generation now just 20% of total, down from 60% in 2005 FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Reuters:The chief executive of the Tennessee Valley Authority said on Tuesday the U.S.-owned power generator expects to get more than 60 percent of its energy from non-carbon-emitting sources by 2020, compared with over 50 percent in 2018.Bill Johnson, who turned 65 in January, announced his retirement as CEO at TVA in November. His last day is Friday. He is expected to be named as the new CEO of California energy company PG&E Corp, which sought bankruptcy protection in January amid potentially staggering liabilities related to wildfires, according to a source familiar with the matter.Since Johnson became CEO of TVA in 2013, the company has spent about $15 billion to modernize its generating fleet, reduced carbon emissions by retiring coal units and cut debt by $3.5 billion, all while keeping consumer electric prices basically flat.“Our generating fleet is now very diverse and clean,” Johnson said, noting the changes were driven by the mandate in the TVA Act “to produce energy at the lowest feasible rate.”TVA’s energy mix is now about 40 percent nuclear, 20 percent natural gas, a little over 20 percent coal, 11-13 percent hydro and the rest renewables and energy efficiency. That compares with 60 percent coal, little gas, 30 percent nuclear and the rest hydro in 2005.In February, TVA’s board voted to shut two more coal plants – Bull Run in Tennessee by 2020 and Paradise in Kentucky by 2023 – for economic reasons despite strong opposition from the Trump administration. When those plants shut, Johnson said coal will only represent about 17 percent of TVA’s energy mix.More: TVA to get 60 percent of energy from non-carbon sources by 2020: CEO
“This is far from enough,” Mesty said in a statement on Wednesday. “We will continue to ensure that protective equipment is accessible and well-distributed to support healthcare workers in their fight against COVID-19.”She went on to say that the campaign was also supported by a number of major companies, including homegrown e-commerce unicorn Tokopedia.Read also: Manufacturers ramp up capacity to produce protective gearMesty encouraged the public and potential donors to access the fund-raising data on the campaign’s official webpage to ensure transparency and accountability of the initiative. Topics : “We know that it is a long journey, which is why we invite everyone to contribute to distributing the PPE to Indonesian health workers,” Mesty said.Shortages of protective gear supplies remain a major issue amid nationwide efforts to stem the rapid spread of COVID-19.As of April 14, as many as 206 health workers have tested positive for the novel coronavirus, according to data from the Indonesian Doctors Association (IDI) and the Indonesian Nurses Association (PPNI). Of those who contracted the virus, at least 24 doctors and 12 nurses have died of COVID-19. National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) chief Doni Monardo, who helms the country’s COVID-19 task force, said on Tuesday that the government had responded to supply shortages by distributing 725,000 pieces of protective health gear, 13 million surgical masks and 150,000 N95 masks. Online health fund-raising platform WeCare has initiated a campaign that aims to provide personal protective equipment (PPE) for healthcare personnel working around the clock treating COVID-19 patients across the country despite the apparent scarcity of safety apparatuses.The campaign, under the hashtag #APDuntukNegeri (#PPEfortheCountry), has raised Rp 8.1 billion (US$512,904) as of Thursday, which will be allocated for the distribution of face masks, goggles, face shields and caps, among others, to around 1,700 hospitals across the archipelago.WeCare cofounder Mesty Ariotedjo said the campaign had managed to distribute protective gear supplies to more than 400 hospitals and health clinics in several regions.

MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (AP) – A union leader alleged Tuesday that a large Iowa nursing home for veterans is forcing some employees to work after they were exposed to a colleague who tested positive for coronavirus.AFSCME Council 61 President Danny Homan said the situation at the Iowa Veterans Home in Marshalltown is potentially putting employees and its more than 500 residents at risk of infection.Homan said asymptomatic employees were told Tuesday that they had to continue working even if they worked closely with an individual who recently tested positive. He said one employee received direction from a doctor to self-quarantine but the home “refused to follow” that directive.Homan says the state must act immediately to ensure that veterans and the staff who care for them are not needlessly exposed.Home Commandant Timon Oujiri said late Tuesday that three employees have tested positive, including one last week, and four others await results. He said that 24 residents have been tested so far and all have been negative.Oujiri said employees who were exposed to colleagues known to be infected have been warned and thus far none have reported having symptoms. The three staff who tested positive each worked in different buildings on the campus, he said.
