Members Of Vulfpeck Appear On Vibey New Julian Allen Record

first_imgJulian Allen is a musical artist, songwriter, drummer, and producer from Chicago, Illinois, commonly known in the Vulfpeck fan community as the drummer in Theo Katzman‘s touring band. This week, Allen releases his first-ever musical record, Could U Be, a seven-track sonic exploration of the self. Featuring Joe Dart on bass, Woody Goss on keys, Theo Katzman on vocals, and Tyler Duncan on guitar and behind the mixing board, this album has “Vulf” written all over it–though the music is distinctly different than any previous Vulf-associated recordings, standing alone as the vibe-heavy product of a self-proclaimed “flower boy”.“Completing my first collection of songs has been a wild journey,” explains Julian. “I could have never known, how making an album can be as much a means of discovery, of therapy and of healing, as of expression. And like discovery, and like healing, making music is not necessarily a linear, neat, or predictable process. And like discovery, and like healing, this work is never over, even if my own work within this snapshot of my life is over.” Head toListen to Julian Allen’s debut album Could U Be below:[Produced by Julian Allen Mixing on Tracks 2,3,6, and 7 by Jake Birch Mixing on Tracks 1,4,and 5 by Tyler Duncan Mastering by Devin Kerr Audio Engineering by Tyler Duncan Additional Post – Production by Tyler Duncan Lyrical Contributions On Track 1 by Theo Katzman Album Art By Jennica Bocchino and Julian AllenJulian Allen : Vocals , Drums, Percussion, Aux Keys on Track 4, Drum Programming on Track 5 , Electronics on Track 7 Joe Dart : Bass Woody Goss : Keyboard James Cornelison : Guitar on Tracks 1 , 3 , 4 , 5 , and 6 Tyler Duncan : Guitar on Tracks 2 , 3 , and 7]last_img read more

Panel at HDS discusses religious debates over sexuality

first_imgHarvard Divinity School (HDS) hosted “Queer Youth and Religious Debates Over Sexuality,” a panel discussion held Oct. 7 on queer youth in the United States and their relationship to religion and the church. Cheryl A. Giles, Peabody Professor of the Practice in Pastoral Care and Counseling at HDS, moderated the conversation, which featured prominent gay rights activists and leaders from across the country.HDS professor Mark D. Jordan — a prolific author on how American churches debate over homosexuality around adolescents — explained that, while much has changed over the last half-century in church debate, one thing that has not changed is that queer youth are regularly talked about, but almost never allowed to speak for themselves.“Queer youth are at once featured and erased, or displaced, by simplistic views of them, and the fights about them often try to claim them for one camp or another — either religious or queer, but rarely both,” Jordan said. “So the debates keep cycling, powered by these unchallenged habits of speech.”Jordan, speaking in front of a large audience inside Andover Hall on the HDS campus, explained how homophobic Christian discourses damage all queer youth, but they are especially damaging to queer youth in Christian homes, and worse, for youth who believe.“We have to get them better news about God,” he said. “We have to present them with convincing pictures of their own queer futures as believers. We have to open for them actual spaces in which they can be queer and religious. Exile from religion cannot be the cost of admission to queer life, especially for the young.”Fellow panelist Harry Knox, director of Religion and Faith Program at the Human Rights Campaign, implored the audience, composed largely of students, to pick up the vision of the older generation and to utilize resources available to them as the struggle for equality continues.Grace Sterling Stowell, executive director of Boston Alliance of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Youth, has worked for gender justice for 30 years. She called attention to the drastic need for conversations about religion that include transgender youth. Other participants included writer and activist Irene Monroe, and Pam Garramone, executive directory of Greater Boston Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender People.last_img read more

New Brigade Reinforces Brazilian Army Presence in Amazon Region

first_imgBy Nelza Oliveira/Diálogo April 06, 2018 A ceremony on January 26, 2018 marked the activation of the Brazilian Army’s (EB, in Portuguese) 22nd Jungle Infantry Brigade, also called the Amazon Estuary Brigade, based in Macapá, in the state of Amapá. The new unit will boost protection of the 1,980-kilometer border with Guyana, French Guiana, and Suriname. With the activation of this brigade, the last Brazilian state with international borders without a military brigade will be Acre. Brigadier General of the EB Luiz Gonzaga Viana Filho, commander of the new unit, said the area of responsibility of the 22nd Brigade also includes a large stretch of the Atlantic Ocean, extending along the northern coast of the state of Pará and the entire states of Maranhão and Amapá. Under the Northern Military Command (CMN, in Portuguese), in the state of Pará, the 22nd Brigade will oversee operations of the 34th Jungle Infantry Battalion (BIS, in Portuguese) of Amapá, the 2nd BIS of Belém, Pará, and the 24th BIS of São Luís, Maranhão. “The creation of the [22nd] Brigade, in keeping with the National Defense Strategy to prioritize the Amazon region, increases our military presence in the eastern Amazon region,” said Brig. Gen. Viana Filho. ”It enables better coordination between military organizations [2nd BIS, 34th BIS and 24th BIS], and marks the presence of the Brazilian government in the vast, under-populated areas along the border with Guyana, Suriname, and French Guiana.” Another 3,000 men on the border The 22nd Brigade is still in the making. According to Brig. Gen. Viana Filho, construction for the new unit’s facilities was budgeted at about $79 million and began in 2014 for a 2024 completion date. “We finished the Brigade Command Post, the Command Company facilities, the Guard Corps, and two residential buildings for officers and cadets, each with 24 apartments,” he said. The new brigade began operating with a force of 1,000 personnel. According to Brig. Gen. Viana Filho, the force will comprise 3,000 personnel in Macapá, with 300 families living on base, and will count a total of 5,000 members. The increase in personnel—through EB’s enlistment of more youth and the greater presence of service members in general—and construction work for the new base, will boost the economy of the region with the creation of more jobs. “This is an achievement for Brazil, the Amazon region, and Amapá,” said Antônio Waldez Góes da Silva, governor of Amapá, during the activation ceremony. “We owe a great deal to the Army’s initiative and planning, because even though the last three years were marked by huge challenges [budget wise], it didn’t give up on its strategic planning.” “I can say that it was a huge challenge, because of our budgetary restrictions, but we had the general and sectorial agencies in Brasília on board, and the project took off, thanks in large part to the work of the management team on this project,” said EB General Oswaldo de Jesús Ferreira, former head of the Northern Military Command. “I would like to pay homage to all those who participated in the effort to turn this dream into reality. This is a happy day for me.” Partnership According to Brig. Gen. Viana Filho, the main challenges service members will face in the region are cross-border criminal activities, such as environmental crimes, illegal mining, smuggling, and deforestation, among others. On February 8th and 9th, shortly after the activation of the 22nd Brigade, Brazilian officials took part in bilateral meetings in Paramaribo, Suriname, and Georgetown, Guyana, to address regional security and border issues with a focus on unlawful transnational activities, intelligence exchange, and defense and police cooperation. Then Minister of Defense Raul Jungmann, Minister of Justice and Public Security Torquato Jardim, and Sérgio Etchegoyen, Minister of the Institutional Security Cabinet for the Office of the President of the Republic of Brazil, participated. “Crime became a national and international scourge. It’s no longer enough to fight it within the nation’s borders,” said Minister Jungmann. Officials discussed technical agreements in place since 1975, transnational crime, military formation and training, defense industry, and exchange programs with Brazilian military academies, among others. Cybersecurity policy for real-time sharing of cyber incidents and joint qualification of personnel was also addressed.last_img read more

Living in Airplane Mode

It wasn’t always this simple to drop a knowledge bomb, though.How quickly we forget. In 2007, Apple ushered in the modern smartphone era. Before the iPhone, we either had “smart” phones or Blackberry’s. Neither category was particularly good at browsing the Internet. No Siri or Cortana in those days, either. Unless it was essential, you waited to research when back at a computer. But the web still had hold.Let’s go back even further, before the Internet, like, the 80s. Big hair, boomboxes, leg warmers, neon clothing…got it? If you didn’t know something, you asked another person. Or, crazy as it sounds today, drove to the library.

BW Offshore wins extension for Polvo FPSO

first_imgFPSO operator BW Offshore has signed an agreement with PetroRio for a one-year extension for the lease and operation of FPSO Polvo operating offshore Brazil. BW Offshore said last Friday that the firm period had been extended from the third quarter of 2019 to the third quarter 2020, with options until 3Q 2022.The FPSO Polvo was previously awarded a one-year extension back in January 2018. This option expires in the third quarter of 2019.BW Offshore is operating the FPSO Polvo on the Petrorio-operated Polvo field located in the Campos basin offshore Brazil, approximately 100 kilometers off the coast of Rio de Janeiro, in water depths of around 100 meters.The field has been developed with a fixed platform, known as Polvo A, and the FPSO Polvo, which is capable of handling a daily oil production of 90,000 barrels of oil per day, with a storage capacity of 1.6 million barrels.It is worth reminding that BW Offshore in May 2018 contracted PG Flow Solutions to supply water booster pumps for the Polvo FPSO life extension project.The scope of work was the engineering, procurement, assembly of pump skid, and commissioning of two produced water booster pumps in super duplex materials, with 150kW electrical motors, variable frequency drives, and pressurized seal system.Offshore Energy Today Stafflast_img read more

Brazil Edges Argentina in Four-team Friendly

first_imgMiranda headed an injury-time winner as Brazil beat South American rivals Argentina to win a four-team friendly tournament in Saudi Arabia.The defender was left unmarked at the near post to head home from a corner.It was a dramatic finale to what had been a drab contest of few chances at King Abdullah Sports City stadium. Neymar, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino all disappointed against an inexperienced Argentina side lacking star names, including Lionel Messi.With Sergio Aguero, Gonzalo Higuain and Angel di Maria also absent, the game will be heartening for temporary boss Lionel Scaloni, despite defeat, after a defensive but disciplined and committed display from his young side.His Brazilian counterpart Tite will have more concerns following a largely uninspiring and flat performance from a team with too much attacking talent to offer any convincing excuses.It was Miranda who went closest throughout the game, heading over from a corner and seeing a shot blocked on the line by Nicolas Otamendi in the first half before making his decisive contribution in the second minute of added time in the second.The closest Argentina came to a goal was a Paulo Dybala free-kick that cleared the crossbar by a foot.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Dede Ayew poses with PSG players at night club

first_imgGhana midfielder André Ayew who is recovering from injury, was seen in the famous Parisian nightclub VIP Room, accompanied by many PSG players.The Ghana international was pictured with several PSG players in a recent night out in Paris which has sparked the criticism from some Marseille fans.Arm in arm with Edinson Cavani and Jeremy Menez, the Ghanaian also posed with the business owner, Jean Roch, who published the photo.The photo also had Marco Verratti, Salvatore Sirigu and Ezequiel Lavezzi which sparked some suspicion among Marseille fans that Ayew is plotting to join PSG.But Ayew insists he is not leaving Marseille and that he is friends with players of others clubs.“Everyone knows my love of the club (Marseille) and the colours (of Marseille) have always been ingrained in me,” Ayew responded on Twitter. “Please lets have some respect for each other. There is the rivalry of the clubs but there is also a reality that we are all human beings.”Ayew is expected to return to action by the end of next month.last_img read more

Why aren’t Clippers playing with great energy every night?

first_imgChris Paul and Lance Stephenson made similar thought-provoking comments following Monday night’s 100-99 Clippers loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder at Staples Center.“We definitely came out with a lot of energy,” Stephenson said. “I mean, it was a tough game, they pulled it out. If we come out with that energy, the sky’s the limit for us.”Said Paul: “I think we played with the right spirit. … We played hard, played with great energy.”All true. If the Clippers (16-13) play with the intensity with which they played Monday, they figure to win a lot more games than they lose. They have taken Golden State (twice), San Antonio and Oklahoma City down to the wire, leading all four game in the fourth quarter before losing. That begs the question — if you can put out that kind of effort against the three top teams in the Western Conference, why can’t you do that against the lesser teams?Of their other nine losses, three have come to teams — Phoenix, Portland and Utah — currently below .500. Two others came to Houston, which is 15-14 but only climbed over the .500 mark Monday. That’s not to mention the Clippers have had difficulty putting away inferior teams like Minnesota and Brooklyn.Paul fielded that one.“That’s a really good question,” he said. “And that’s what great teams do. That’s why the Spurs, Warriors, those type teams, that’s why they have the records they do. They bring it every night no matter who they’re playing against.“For us, we’ve had different lineups every night and all this different type stuff, guys in and out. But that’s part of building a great team and that’s what we’re trying to do.” The Clippers are currently starting Luc Mbah a Moute at small forward. Others who have started there include Lance Stephenson, Wesley Johnson and Paul Pierce.All AldrichDoc Rivers wouldn’t go into detail when asked why reserve forward/center Josh Smith did not play Monday, other than to say, “I just thought Cole would give us more energy.”But before the game, Rivers intimated there is at least one player not buying into the Clippers’ program. And since Rivers is not crazy about it when Smith starts jacking up 3-pointers, and since Smith has already had a heated shouting match with an assistant coach as well as a beef with Rivers during a game, one can surmise Smith may be that guy.Smith played just six minutes in Saturday’s loss at Houston. His DNP on Monday gave Cole Aldrich a chance to get some real minutes — not garbage time — and he came through. He scored five points, grabbed four rebounds, made three steals and blocked two shots in under 14 minutes.Blake Griffin praised Aldrich, and in doing so may have taken a shot at Smith without mentioning him by name.“The way he played with the second unit, setting screen and rolls, he was just out there to do his job,” Griffin said of Aldrich. “I think that is a huge quality for him. That was a prime example of being a star in your role and not trying to reach outside of that.“He just did what we needed him to do and that was huge.”UpcomingThe Clippers play the Lakers at 7:30 Christmas night (on ESPN) at Staples Center. The Clippers then hit the road for four games — Saturday at Utah, Monday at Washington, Dec. 30 at Charlotte and New Year’s Eve at New Orleans.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Matt Kemp, Yasmani Grandal HRs back Hyun-Jin Ryu as Dodgers pound Padres

first_imgKemp drove in 100 runs for the Padres in 2015 and became the first player in franchise history to hit for the cycle – “that was pretty cool,” he recalled Monday afternoon when pressed for memories from his time in San Diego.But he was traded away in midseason of 2016 as a salary dump – sound familiar? – having “lost some of my love for the game” (his words in a Players Tribune article), deteriorated defensively and collected a reputation as a poor teammate.“For sure, you come to a place where you played, you want to do good,” Kemp said, as close to a mic drop as he was willing to get Monday.Everything has been rainbows and unicorns since Kemp put a Dodgers uniform back on this spring and Monday’s two-hit night kept his standing as one of the few Dodgers hitters who can raise his head high in the first weeks of the season – he is batting .333 (14 for 42) with two home runs and seven RBIs.Hyun-Jin Ryu is enjoying a second act of his own, one that has been building since last season when he returned from shoulder and elbow surgeries that limited him to one start in all of 2015 and 2016.He started this season with a dud (a five-walk, 3-2/3-inning clunker in Arizona) but has followed with two starts that would have fit nicely in his 2013-14 catalog.Against the Padres, he gave up a two-run home run to Villanueva in the second inning then retired 15 of the next 17 batters he faced, allowing just one more hit and striking out nine in six innings. Over his past two starts, Ryu has allowed just four hits, walked one and struck out 17 in 12 innings.“I think with Hyun-Jin when he’s throwing the cut fastball to guys and the changeup off of that, later in the count when they’re thinking about the cutter in to them – a lot of times when you have enough velocity you can get the fastball to beat the barrel,” Roberts said. “Tonight, I saw some 92s, 93s. He can pitch at 90 but when he needs a 92 in there to just beat the bat, he has the ability.“It was good to see. It was kind of the Ryu from a couple years ago.” “Yazzie right now is locked in,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said.When Kemp left San Diego in a midseason trade two years ago, he left behind a bumbling team in the early stages of a rebuilding plan.Now … well, yeah.The Padres committed three errors Monday, each more laughable than the one before. Third baseman Christian Villanueva let a ground ball eat him up for a two-base error to start the third inning. Right fielder Hunter Renfroe was caught flat-footed when Corey Seager rocketed a line drive at him (ruled a three-base error) by the next batter. And an inning later, left fielder Jose Pirela simply dropped an easy fly ball.In between, Kemp’s three-run home run punctuated his latest return to the place where his career seemed to start going south, geographically at the very least. “He set the tone today. Obviously it’s always great to have a veteran presence in the dugout and he can still swing it with the best of them.”Kemp’s three-run home run highlighted a five-run third inning for the Dodgers. He also said with a laugh that it gave him something to “shut them up for awhile” after getting a hearty assortment of boos before his first at-bat as a recycled Dodger returning to one of his former baseball towns.“I just thought about that,” Kemp said when reminded of his trading-places history with Grandal. “Definitely weird. But definitely good to be doing what we’re doing.”It’s definitely a good thing for the Dodgers. Their lineup is otherwise sprinkled with underperforming hitters still trying to find their footing.Grandal drove in five runs with an RBI double and a grand slam. He leads the Dodgers in nearly every offensive category.
