PREMIERE: Vinegar Mother Shares Delightfully Spacey Debut Record, ‘PHASES’

first_imgIn a sonically inspiring middle group where space rock and jazz fusion meet, you’ll find Vinegar Mother, the high-octane quintet hailing from Brooklyn, NY. Coming together in 2015, the lineup is comprised of Julia Zivic (vocals/lyrics), Itamar Gov-Ari (keyboard), Jason Zivic (drums), Mike Roninson (bass), with Chris Mazuera joining as lead guitarist late last year. Today, Live For Live Music is pleased to share their debut record, PHASES, ahead of its official release tomorrow. Listen below:<a href=”http://vinegarmother.bandcamp.com/album/phases”>PHASES by Vinegar Mother</a>For PHASES, the band wanted to keep true to a collaborative spirit and they revel in their ability to meld genres seamlessly. Take the opening track, “Moon Tomb,” for example; from the get-go, Vinegar Mother pulls the listener in with a groovy, R&B atmosphere, but by the 3rd track, “NEXUS,” they’ve gone and added spacey electronic elements. “Palm Sweat,” the album’s 5th track is a breezy first-date anthem for the modern millennial, as Zivic’s sultry vocals croon “Palm sweat / I’m in debt / I’m in a dilemma I just do not get.” “Shame” is reminiscent of Hiatus Kaiyote with elements of prog-rock elevating the band’s individual style.Throughout the record, Zivic’s powerhouse vocals swirl above the virtuoso talents of the band. The themes and lyrics on PHASES are definitely clever and encapsulates the human experience in modern times.Zivic shares: “In PHASES, Vinegar Mother believes it has a perfect blend of impressive instrumentation and honest emotion. The band would like all to journey through the album in song order to hear the interesting transitions and thoughtful flow of PHASES. In that way, Vinegar Mother hopes each composition reaches out to the listener and invites them inside the world of the leading lady. The lyrics, the musicality, and the ever-changing mood will hopefully make you go through ‘phases’ of your own.”For more information on Vinegar Mother, and for a list of upcoming tour dates, head to the band’s website.last_img read more

Get the Power of the Cloud – Gain Control of Your Business

first_imgDell EMC Data Protection for Microsoft Azure StackCloud computing is probably the most cost-efficient method to use, maintain, and upgrade your IT infrastructure. Azure Stack brings the agility and fast-paced innovation of cloud computing to on-premises environments. Only Dell EMC offers a complete portfolio of Data Protection solutions for both traditional and emerging workloads no matter where customers are in their cloud journey.Azure brings an entirely new way of doing business in the cloudAzure brings an entirely new way of doing business in the cloud. The Azure ecosystem consists of redundant data centers located literally around our globe. In most cases, Azure can provide you with far better security, performance, and reliability than you can provide on-premises.Microsoft Azure is a comprehensive collection of cloud services intended to provide developers and IT professionals the ability to build, deploy, and manage workloads leveraging a wide variety of development and DevOps tools and offering an extensive marketplace of offerings with which to build applications and solutions. However, as extensive as Azure public’s offerings are there are still a number of barriers that can prevent organizations from adopting a strictly public cloud model. Considerations such as regulatory compliance, data sovereignty, or a variety of edge cloud or disconnected use cases, just to name a few, can be drivers for customers to pursue a Hybrid Cloud model. Microsoft has recognized these challenges and answered them in the form of Azure Stack. The goal of Azure Stack is to provide an Azure consistent set of services and tools allowing Developers and IT professionals to leverage the same tools and methodologies in an Azure consistent fashion regardless of where an application is deployed (Public, on-prem, or hybrid).Benefits: There are three core benefits when leveraging Microsoft Azure and Azure Stack.Consistent Application Development – Developers have a true “write once deploy anywhere” model based on a consistent set of tools and processes.On-premises Azure Services – Organizations can adopt a cloud computing model on their own terms to meet both their technical and business challenges in a hybrid model without changing tools or methodologies based on deployment locale.Integrated Hybrid Delivery Model – Allows IT organizations to transform operations to focus on delivering cloud services predicated on integrated systems designed to deliver consistent Azure services in a predictable manner.Protecting Your Investment: Now that you have the power of a truly hybrid Azure ecosystem at your disposal, how are you protecting your investment?What is data protection in the cloud? And how do you choose the best backup? This isn’t an easy question to answer since it comes in various forms and the tools and technologies for data protection are extremely numerous and can be used in different combinations. A large number of choices can make cloud more difficult than traditional schemas. Still, we can simplify the challenges that appear to be complex with one solution from Dell EMC.Dell EMC recently tested the protection of databases and file systems running on virtual machines inside the Azure Stack to data protection that was running outside of Azure Stack on the customer network. To that end, planning around network settings and security is required. Outside of Azure Stack, network configuration for routing traffic to the internal Azure Stack network(s) will need to be planned and configured. Inside, Azure Stack network security groups assigned to each virtual machine need to be configured to allow inbound and outbound network traffic on specific ports depending on the data protection solution being used (virtual editions of Avamar, NetWorker, Data Domain, etc.).When you build modern applications across hybrid cloud environments, Dell EMCs architecture and industry-leading deduplications result in a lower overall Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).Architecture Matters: Dell EMC data protection solutions are architected to offer customers economic benefits through industry-leading, highly efficient data deduplication. Three core supporting technologies are:Variable-Length Deduplication.Dell EMC’s advanced dedupe enables the Data Domain platform to better align incoming data structures to determine what data is unique. It produces greater data reduction compared with fixed-length architectures, which results in a much more scalable protection storage pool, helping to simplify management and lower Azure storage costs. Plus, Dell EMC provides global deduplication across sites and allows you to backup and replicate non-Azure Stack resources as well.Data Domain Boost.With DD Boost software, only unique data has to be sent from client devices or the backup server to the Data Domain platform—reducing the amount of data moved by up to 99 percent. This further reduces not only the need and cost of protection storage, but also backup time. When DD Boost is deployed with the Data Protection Software at the Azure Stack client, it sends only the de-duplicated unique data directly to protection storage, bypassing the need for a media server. The result is a reduction in infrastructure footprint required, therefore fewer resources to purchase and lower egress/ingress costs to other Azure resources, not to mention a faster backup due to fewer hops in the data path. For 8 of 12 Data Domain customers that ESG Research analyzed, up to 98 percent of all backup jobs were completed in under an hour.*Data Domain Data Invulnerability Architecture.While this technology doesn’t improve performance or reduce costs, it ensures that mission-critical Azure Stack data is always recoverable. One way that Data Domain ensures this is via inline write and read verification, which safeguards data integrity during ingest and retrieval. In addition, self-healing and on-going fault detection further protects data’s recoverability during its Data Domain lifecycle.With Dell EMC Cloud for Microsoft Azure Stack, you can bring the power of Azure into your data center, behind your firewall – engineered, tested, delivered, serviced and supported by Dell EMC. Whether your applications are on-prem or in the cloud today, data protection needs to be an important part of any strategy. Dell EMC’s data protection capabilities address both traditional and emerging cloud strategies.For customers looking to leverage Microsoft Azure solutions, Dell EMC is certified to deploy Avamar and NetWorker virtual editions outside of the Azure Stack protecting VM’s with guest-level protection to provide customers with the Azure Stack Marketplace Support.It is important to note that Dell EMC requires an in-tenant client to facilitate backing up tenant workloads today.) Why choose Dell EMC Data Protection for Azure Stack? Dell EMC data protection products are already proven in non-cloud environments and bring a market reliability, scale and performance to Azure Stack customers. Dell EMC is a trusted partner across the data protection portfolio. For database and filesystem protection, customers only need to install and configure the appropriate software client/agent to their virtual machines and manage their backups and recoveries the same way that they currently protect physical servers in their data centers. On the horizon, Avamar Virtual Edition and NetWorker Virtual Edition will also be available to allow customers the option of protecting Azure Stack assets using data protection that is also running within Azure Stack.As businesses embrace the benefits of Azure Stack, the Dell EMC data protection portfolio provides a trusted foundation for businesses to transform IT through the creation of a hybrid cloud, as well as transform their business through the creation of cloud-native applications and big data solutions.Understanding Microsoft Azure Stack Azure Stack is an extension of Azure, bringing the agility and fast-paced innovation of cloud computing to on-premises environments. Only Azure Stack lets you deliver Azure services from your organization’s datacenter, while balancing the right amount of flexibility and control—for truly-consistent hybrid cloud deployments.OTHER RESOURCESDell EMC Azure Stack: https://www.dellemc.com/en-us/solutions/cloud/microsoft-azure-stack.htm Explore More: Dell EMC Cloud for Microsoft Azure Stack*ESG White Paper: ESG Whitepaper sponsored by Dell EMC, “The Economic Value of Data Domain,” May 2017. 8 out of 12 customers analyzed achieved backup in less than one hour.

U.S. Sanctions Venezuela’s PDVSA for Trade with Iran

first_img “These sanctions will not prevent PDVSA’s sale of oil to the United States or other markets, and the sanctions do not affect the operations of PDVSA’s subsidiaries,” he added. On 24 May, the United States announced the imposition of new sanctions on “seven foreign entities,” including the Venezuelan state oil firm PDVSA, for trade with Iran. On 23 May, the European Union strengthened its own sanctions against Iran, adding more than one hundred firms to a blacklist of companies affected by an asset freeze, amid efforts to restart international negotiations aimed at getting Teheran to cease its nuclear program. It will, however, be able to sell oil in the United States and will be able to sell refined petroleum products through its CITGO subsidiary, which has a presence throughout the country, Deputy Secretary of State James Steinberg explained at a press conference. Approximately 10% of U.S. crude imports come from Venezuela, the world’s fifth-ranking exporter with a million barrels a day, according to official figures. Petróleos de Venezuela (PDVSA) will be unable to participate in any contract made directly with the U.S. government or have access to U.S. financing programs or technologies. Washington also imposed sanctions on sixteen other foreign entities, including Chinese firms and firms from other countries, for trade with Iran, Syria, and North Korea that has been linked to the production of weapons of mass destruction or missiles. “Today’s actions add further pressure on Iran to comply with its international obligations,” Steinberg said. By Dialogo May 26, 2011 “In the case of PDVSA, the sanctions we have imposed will cut off PDVSA’s access to U.S. government contracts, U.S. export-import financing, and licenses for controlled technologies” in the petroleum area, Steinberg specified. The measures affect PDVSA, PCCI (Jersey/Iran), Royal Oyster Group (United Arab Emirates), Speedy Ship (United Arab Emirates/Iran), Tanker Pacific (Singapore), Ofer Brothers Group (Israel), and Associated Shipbroking (Monaco). Steinberg indicated that the United States also imposed sanctions on sixteen foreign entities and individuals, including entities or individuals from China, Belarus, Iran, North Korea, Syria, and Venezuela, as part of an effort to curb the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. He added that the sanctions were imposed “pursuant to the Iran, North Korea, Syria, and Nonproliferation Act (…) for their activities in support of WMD (weapons of mass destruction) or missile programs.” The sanctions are being applied under the terms of a 1996 law passed in response to Iran’s controversial nuclear program, which in Washington’s view has the objective of building an atomic weapon. In a telephone press conference, high-level U.S. government sources subsequently specified to reporters that PDVSA had in the past sought access to licenses and import-export financing, although they did not provide details of the level of financial impact those measures are expected to entail.last_img read more

Cruise Critic named Dubrovnik the best cruise destination in the Eastern Mediterranean

first_imgPrema Cruise Critic, the world’s largest online cruise review portal and cruise planning portal (TripAdvisor’s cruise page), Dubrovnik has just been named the best destination for cruises in the Eastern Mediterranean in the second ever organized competition Cruise Critic Cruisers’ Choice Destination Awards.”Choosing a cruise plan is not easy, especially because of the growing number of beautiful destinations available for cruises. Analyzing first-hand the feedback of travelers of world destinations on cruises, it allows us to discover which destinations are the most popular, which is a real proof of their attractiveness. By sharing this information, we hope to inspire and guide travelers to an easier choice of cruise plan, with which they too will be delighted.. ” pointed out Adam Coulter, UK editor of Cruise Critic.During 2017, 577 touches and about 760 thousand cruise passengers are expected in Dubrovnik. That’s 11 percent less touching and about 9 percent fewer passengers compared to last year. The daily number of visitors from the cruise is limited to 8 thousand. At the beginning of the year, counters were set up at five entrances to the historic core in Dubrovnik to comply with UNESCO guidelines, according to which it should not have more than eight thousand visitors at a time, and 116 cameras were installed in 37 places.The Mayor of the City of Dubrovnik, Mato Franković, expresses the need to ensure the most appropriate allocation of ship arrivals in the 2018 season through joint efforts and coordination of state and local levels of government, in order to achieve the highest quality of the overall tourist offer that brought Dubrovnik more prestigious the title of the best destination on the Adriatic. ”“The current situation is unsustainable in the true sense of the word, and the pressure on the historic core during peak traffic loads, especially at the end of the week, when over 7.000 people enter the city during the few hours in the morning, does not bring anything good in terms of preservation of monumental heritage. and by no means in the quality of the visitor experience. The long-term goal of the City of Dubrovnik is to ensure that at one time there are no more than 4.000 guests from cruise ships inside the walls. We believe that this is the optimal number that ensures a quality life for the citizens of Dubrovnik, and our guests the best possible experience of traveling and enjoying the beauty and all the offer of Dubrovnik. I am convinced that this goal can be achieved by better planning and dispersion of ship arrival dates, which requires joint action.. ”Franković points out.last_img read more

Gov. Wolf: More Than $2 Million in Grants for Employment Services for Individuals with Opioid Use Disorder

first_img Economy, Press Release, Substance Use Disorder Governor Tom Wolf announced today that the Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs (DDAP) is awarding more than $2 million in federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) grants to provide employment support services for individuals with Opioid Use Disorder (OUD).The grants are part of the $55.9 million SAMSHA grant secured by the Wolf Administration to bolster the state’s response to the prescription opioid and heroin epidemic.“We have not lost focus on the continuing opioid crisis in Pennsylvania,” Gov. Wolf said. “And now more than ever, employment services are vital to help people struggling during the pandemic with the loss of a job or need to find employment. These grants will help those with substance use disorder have a better chance at recovery by helping to access employment.”“Just like having access to recovery supports and stable housing, employment is a critical component of a person’s sustained recovery,” said DDAP Secretary Jennifer Smith. “These grantees have support programs to equip people with necessary tools to find jobs and, as equally important in today’s job market, partnerships with employers to hire people in recovery. I look forward to seeing the positive impact this funding has on people and workplaces across the commonwealth.”The funding will be directed to 14 organizations commonwealth-wide through grant agreements up to $200,000. Awardees will provide a wide variety of services including vocational assessments, resume writing, interviewing skills, job placement, and transportation assistance related to employment. Additionally, each awardee has identified one employer partner who is committed to hiring individuals in recovery from OUD.

COVID-19 mortality impact negligible for Dutch funding ratios

first_imgThe higher mortality rate among pensioners in the first half of this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic has so far only had a very modest positive impact on the funding ratios of Dutch pension funds.The longer-term effects, however, are still uncertain.Excess deaths in the Netherlands in the first half of 2020 were the highest since at least 1995 when records started, according to the national statistics association CBS.Some 8.9% more deaths were recorded in the first six months of the year than could be expected based on the historical average, with excess male deaths (+9.3%) slightly higher than excess female deaths (+8.4%). The figure is considerably higher than the previous excess deaths record of +5.6%, which was registered in H1 2018.The impact of excess deaths on pension funds’ funding ratios is still very small, however, said Daan Kleinloog of pensions consultancy Sprenkels & Verschuren.“Pension funds tend to have a longevity risk buffer of 1% of total assets. This means that a 10% increase in deaths, roughly the number we’ve seen in the first half of the year, only translate into a 0.1% increase in funding ratios. So the effect is only very modest,” he said.What will happen to excess death going forward very much depends on the course the pandemic will take. “If the increase in deaths does not continue in the second half of the year, we’ll end up only having an excess death rate of 4.5% at year-end, halving the expected increase in funding ratios to just 0.05%,” Kleinloog noted.“And it’s also possible most people who died from COVID-19 would have died soon anyway, so perhaps the virus only brought some deaths forward. If this is the case, excess deaths could even be negative in the second half of the year,” he added.In this context, it’s also worth noting most excess deaths occur in the 80+ age group, which has a limited life expectancy anyway.Excess deaths could also rise going forward, Kleinloog said. “There are signs that a significant proportion of COVID-19 patients do not fully recover from the virus. This could shorten their life expectancy and lead to a higher death rate for a long time to come.”And, of course, the second wave of the virus which is now unfolding could lead to an increase in deaths towards the end of the year. After all, the bulk of COVID-19 deaths were recorded in Q2, when the excess death rate hit 15.3% for men and 14.7% for women.However, even in a worst-case scenario of excess deaths reaching these levels again next autumn and winter, the effect on funding ratios will likely remain small.To read the digital edition of IPE’s latest magazine click here.last_img read more

MAIB: Polymerization of Styrene Monomer Cargo Caused Stolt Groenland Explosions

first_imgStolt Groenland starboard cargo manifold; Image Courtesy: MAIBThe explosions on board the chemical tanker Stolt Groenland last September were probably caused by the rupture of the deck above 9 starboard cargo tank, followed by the ignition of the styrene monomer vapour that was then released, according to the initial investigation findings by MAIB.The blasts occurred while the ship was readying for a ship-to-ship cargo transfer with Singapore-flagged Product tanker Bow Dalian at the Yeompo Quay in Ulsan, South Korea.According to the report, the vapour started to release from the pressure vacuum valve for Stolt Groenland’s number 9 starboard cargo tank, which contained styrene monomer.Stolt Groenland had loaded 5,250 tonnes of styrene monomer at the LBC terminal in Houston, the U.S.A. in early August before it headed to Japan via the Panama Canal. The cargo was distributed between three stainless steel cargo tanks: numbers 9S, 6P and 6C.As informed, prior to loading, the tanks had been washed and inspected and wall wash tests had been conducted; no problems were recorded. The tanks were not purged with nitrogen before loading and none were adjacent to heated cargoes in accordance with cargo loading instructions.Image Courtesy: MAIBThe concentration of TBC inhibitor in the styrene monomer in the shore tank was 11.3ppm but this was increased by the addition of 3 US gallons of liquid TBC to each of the destination tanks before loading was commenced. The target concentration of the TBC was 17ppm.According to the report findings, the certificate of inhibitor, issued by the cargo surveyor at the time of loading, stated that the TBC should remain effective for between 60 and 90 days. It also stated that the inhibitor was oxygen-dependent and that the ideal temperature for the styrene monomer was between 60ºF and 85ºF (15.5ºC – 29.4ºC). Stolt Groenland did not carry an additional inhibitor.MAIB said that the rupture was due to over-pressurization and the likely sources of the ignition were static electricity, sparks or elevated steel deck plate temperatures resulting from the tank rupture.“A large hole was found in way of the tank’s common bulkhead with number 9 centre (9C) cargo tank and its hatch cover had been blown of. No cargo operations or deck maintenance were in progress at the time. VDR data showed that the temperature of the styrene monomer had reached 100ºC at the time of the explosion. Such an elevated temperature indicates that the cargo was polymerizing,” the report reads.As a result of the incident, the Ulsan Regional Office of Oceans and Fisheries has prohibited the transport and unloading of some hazardous cargoes, including styrene monomer, at several terminals under the Ulsan bridge.The explosionsTo remind, at 1050 on September 28, two explosions were seen and heard in rapid succession in way of the tanker’s cargo manifold. The resulting fireball passed very close to a road bridge above the quay.The fire on board Stolt Groenland was very intense and large plumes of thick black smoke were emitted. Stolt Groenland’s crew evacuated using the free-fall lifeboat at the stern while Bow Dalian’s crew were taken off by Korean Coastguard boats that had arrived at the scene.The fire was fought from the shore and from the water and lasted until early the following morning. The damage in way of Stolt Groenland’s cargo manifold and accommodation block was extensive.The blasts resulted in several injuries, including those sustained by Stolt Groenland’s gangway watchkeeper, who was blown over the guardrails by the force of the explosion; a deck rating on board Bow Dalian; and, a number of shore workers, including firefighters and police during the emergency response.What is more, a similar incident involving styrene monomer cargo has been reported last month.“On 20 November 2019, the MAIB was informed of an incident on board the Cayman Islands-registered chemical/products tanker Stolt Focus in which the temperature of a styrene monomer cargo had steadily increased. Efforts to stabilize the temperature, including the injection of additional inhibitor, were unsuccessful. Following consultation with chemists ashore, the crew distributed the cargo between four cargo tanks and mixed it with seawater, which stabilized the styrene monomer,” MAIB said.Further investigation is being undertaken into the incident involving Stolt Groenland, which will focus on the factors contributing to the initiation of the polymerization of the styrene monomer, cargo monitoring, and the emergency response.In the interim, chemical tanker owners/operators are reminded to adhere to the carriage and storage instructions details on the safety data sheet, the certificate of inhibitor, and those provided by the charterer. They are also advised to witness the addition of inhibitor into each cargo tank and closely monitor cargo temperature for unexplained increases.They should also ensure that their crews are familiar with the action to take in the event of the styrene monomer self-heating/polymerizing.last_img read more
