Warren Haynes Announces Summer 2016 Festival Set With Ashes & Dust Band

first_imgIt seems that Warren Haynes’ new Ashes & Dust Band isn’t going anywhere come 2016. While the group previously scheduled a winter tour, the announcement that they will be performing at FloydFest in 2016 certainly increases the likelihood that Haynes will be touring the new Ashes & Dust record throughout the majority of the New Year.FloydFest runs from July 27-31 in Floyd, VA, and features a lineup with Gregg Allman, Bruce Hornsby, Nahko & Medicine For The People and more! See more details about the festival here.Meanwhile, Haynes remains dedicated to his new Ashes & Dust band, comprised of drummer Jeff Sipe and the members of the bluegrass outfit ChessBoxer. It’s likely that Ashes & Dust will find its way onto numerous summer festival bills, and fans may even see a second volume of songs released as an album.“We only released about half of them so there’s another album’s worth of material still in the can and another albums worth of material that I still haven’t recorded yet.  So…this could be the start of kinda like a series,” said Haynes in a recent L4LM interview.Of course, who knows what this means for Gov’t Mule. As of now, the band only has a Wanee Festival appearance and two-night New Year’s run at the Beacon Theatre on the schedule, which includes a three-set NYE show with Allman Brothers, The Band and Grateful Dead covers.Whatever the case may be, we’re happy to see Warren Haynes shredding out there!last_img read more

CDC reaffirms safety of pandemic vaccine

first_imgMar 23, 2010 (CIDRAP News) – As of mid February, about 86 million Americans had received the pandemic H1N1 vaccine, and so far no worrisome signals have emerged from extensive safety monitoring, officials from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said today at a conference call with heathcare practitioners.In addition, Anthony Fiore, MD, a medical epidemiologist with the CDC’s influenza branch, countered the view that the pandemic hasn’t differed much from a normal flu season. He pointed out that pediatric deaths from the pandemic H1N1 virus tower high above past seasonal flu years, and showed that hospitalization rates in younger age-groups have been unusually high, and in older people unusually low.Fiore added that one of the H1N1 pandemic’s hallmarks is identification of newly recognized risk groups, such as those who are obese, children with neuromuscular conditions, and indigenous populations.While no adverse event trends have emerged among those receiving vaccine, the CDC said it has seen some patterns with vaccine uptake. Fiore said most doses went to target groups, and coverage was higher in children than in adults. Of children under age 10 who received the vaccine, a group recommended to receive two doses, about 60% have gotten their second dose.In adults, pandemic vaccine uptake was higher in whites than in blacks and Hispanics, though in children patterns did not vary by race or ethnicity, he said.In analyzing uptake patterns, the CDC is identifying opportunities to refine its messages to the public, Fiore said. For example, a recent survey of adults found that the top reason for not getting the vaccine was that many didn’t think they needed to be immunized.The CDC has regularly posted brief pandemic H1N1 vaccine safety updates on its Web site, and in early December, 2 months into the immunization campaign, it published its first major report in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR). Fiore said the CDC will publish another MMWR pandemic vaccine status report within the next few weeks.Karen Broder, MD, from the CDC’s immunization safety office, told clinicians that so far, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), set up to detect possible signs of adverse events but not to verify a vaccine link, has shown that serious events related to the pandemic vaccine are no higher than with the seasonal flu vaccine, which has had an excellent safety profile.As of Feb 16, serious events covered by the VAERS have been reported at a rate of 5.2 per million doses distributed. Reports submitted through the VAERS systems have gradually declined over the past months, mirroring the decline in vaccine doses distributed.So far 46 VAERS reports involve fatalities, she said. According to a review of medical records, medical examiner reports for 22 of the patients listed cardiac causes of death.As of Jan 31, medical chart reviews of VAERS reports verified Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) in 64 patients and anaphylaxis in 115 others. GBS is a rare side effect of the flu and other infections that was linked to a swine flu vaccine used by the United States in 1976. So far the rate appears to be below the US background rate for GBS, which is 1 case per 100,000 population.Broder noted that on Feb 26 in a report to the Food and Drug Administration’s National Vaccine Advisory Committee, the CDC’s nongovernmental vaccine safety working group said it had enough data to detect adverse events and that it had so far found no connection to adverse event patterns and the pandemic H1N1 vaccine. The working group was set up to independently evaluate and synthesize H1N1 vaccine data.She thanked clinicians for their role in stocking and storing the vaccine, screening and educating patients, administering the vaccine, and submitting VAERS reports. “This is not a small task. You have a lot of responsibility, and we appreciate your efforts,” Broder said.See also:CDC clinicians conference call informationDec 4, 2009, CIDRAP News story “CDC heartened by initial safety reports on H1N1 vaccine”last_img read more

Fake GPS, Jurus Pengemudi Online Akali Order Pelanggan

first_imgYoutube Apa yang Anda pikirkan setelah mendengar fake Global Positioning System (GPS) atau GPS palsu? Biasanya orang akan berfikir GPS untuk digunakan dalam sebuah permainan atau saat memposting foto dimana tempat atau posisi Anda berada. Awalnya fake GPS ini banyak sekali digunakan untuk permainan Pokemon Go, penggunaan fake GPS sendiri agar memudahkan dan membuat tipuan posisi GPS yang akan dimanfaatkan seperti saat berburu Pokemon Go.Baca juga: Aplikasi Uber di Amerika Serikat Bakal Dilengkapi Fitur TipKini setelah era Pokemon Go redup, penggunaan fake GPS bertansformasi ke hal lain yang tak ada urusan dengan gaming. Sayangnya aplikasi fake GPS yang bertebaran gratis di Play Store justru banyak digunakan oleh para pengemudi ojek dan taksi online saat ini. Salah satu yang terlihat adalah pengemudi Grab Car yang melakukan cara curang demi keuntungan semata saja. Padahal penggunaan fake GPS ini bisa merugikan penumpang yang memesan dan biasanya pengemudi berada jauh dari lokasi. Sebagai contoh, bila Anda sedang berada di area Gedung Sarinah Thamrin, dan Anda melakukan proses pemesanan di aplikasi. Dari hasil yang dideteksi pada layar aplikasi, saat itu taksi atau ojek online yang Anda pesan menunjukkan posisi sudah dekat dengan Anda, padahal bisa saja para pengemudi tersebut berada jauh di kawasanSenayan. Biasanya perjalanan justru lebih lama menunggu pengemudi di bandingkan perjalanan yang Anda lakukan. Itu salah satu kasus dari dampak negatif penggunaan fake GPS.Baca juga: Aplikasi ini Dirancang Untuk Sadarkan Pengemudi Lelah dan MengantukKenyataan ini bukan hanya merugikan penumpang dalam segi waktu, melainkan juga dari pengemudi lainnya yang memang berada dekat dengan Anda. Sebab, walaupun Anda berada di Sarinah dan memang memesan, justru para pengemudi di Senayan yang akan tetap dapat dan ironisnya pengemudi sekitaran (di area Gedung Thamrin) justru tak bisa mendapat order. Hal ini bisa di katakan pengemudi jujur jadi tak berarti lagi.Atas kejadian ini, Managing Director Grab Indonesia, Rizdki Kramadibrata mengatakan, pengguna fake GPS termasuk pelanggaran kode etik karena mengakali sistem. “Karena lokasinya tidak ada di situ, jadi penumpang menunggu agak lama. Kami tidak mentolerir penggunaan fake GPS maupun fake booking. Karena itu sangat merugikan” kata Rizdki yang dikutip kabarPenumpang.com dari Kompas.com (6/7/2017). Terkait dengan maraknya penggunaan fake GPS, belum lama ini Grab memberi sanksi pencabutan akses pada 197 mitra pengemudi yang terbukti menggunakan fake GPS dan fake booking. Grab saat ini telah memasang sistem monitoring untuk memantau perilaku driver.Baca juga: Kompas Digital, Tetap Presisi dalam Wujud Aplikasi di SmartphoneUntuk diketahui, bahwa untuk menjalankan fake GPS Location Spoofer Free Anda harus mengunduhnya di Play Store, aplikasi ini yang membuat tipuan posisi koordinat GPS. Sebenarnya dalam penggunaan fake GPS ini juga ada kendala dimana smartphone sudah harus di root. Meski begitu, ada aplikasi fake GPS yang bisa digunakan tanpa smartphone harus di root terlebih dahulu, yakni Fly GPS.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedDuh!

Doherty slams ‘unacceptable’ eviction tactics in Roscommon

first_imgDonegal TD Pearse Doherty has said the tactics used by KBC bank in enforcing repossession in Strokestown, Co. Roscommon were “unacceptable and intolerable”.Two brothers and a sister were evicted from their home outside Strokestown last Tuesday.The eviction came under the spotlight after a violent raid on Sunday morning, when eight security guards were attacked while occupying the repossessed home. A gang of more than 20 people wearing balaclavas and wielding baseball bats carried out a pre-dawn raid on the house on Sunday. Three members of the security team guarding the home were hospitalised and a dog was fatally injured.Gardaí are investigating the criminal damage and assault.Donegal Deputy and Sinn Féin Finance Spokesperson said the issue highlighted the unregulated nature of receivers and people employed to enforce evictions.He said: “I was shocked at the video footage from Roscommon showing the aggression and violence perpetrated in enforcing an eviction order. KBC Bank is responsible for this eviction and must be held to account. I have written to the Oireachtas Finance Committee calling for KBC and their agents involved in this eviction to appear before the Committee.” Deputy Doherty has called on the government to speed up planned reform measures:He said: “For years now, I have been seeking the regulation of receivers and their employees – something that is completely lacking.  Almost three years ago, in January 2016 then Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald told me that the working group on company law reform would consider this issue. In October, officials informed me that it still hasn’t even looked at the issue. This regulation must be put in place as per the recommendation of my colleague Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire TD.”“Public anger is rising at the constant Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil enabling of banks, these modern day bailiffs, and the vulture funds to act as they like.”Deputy Doherty added that he believes there are many other alternative solutions, other than evictions.“The immediate issue lies with banks employing security firms with no accountability to evict working families. Those banks should cease these operations and resolve their cases through the many, many other avenues open to them,” Doherty concluded.

It is a time to present a different story of the African continent, a story of peace, democracy and investment,” Ban said at a meeting with Danny Jordaan, the organising committee’s chief executive, at a meeting at the UN headquarters in New York on 21 October.Ban reminisced about his native Korea Republic co-hosting Asia’s first Fifa World Cup with Japan in 2002, saying the tournament was about far more than the 90 minutes on the pitch – it touched every corner of the globe.Referring to Korea’s own history of conflict, he said the game of football, more than any other sport, united people and built solidarity and consensus. He said the 2010 event would do the same for South Africa.Jordaan said the World Cup would play an important role in consolidating the new South Africa. “The World Cup is a dream that began in 1994, the first year of our democracy, and is part of our ongoing efforts as a nation to build unity in our country,” he said.“Peace is not just the absence of war. Peace is creating circumstances that create hope. The legacy of this World Cup embarks on changing the circumstances of many people through its social legacy projects, job creation and advancements in telecommunications and infrastructure.”It was an important week for the organising committee, with the European playoffs draw on Monday and Soccer City, the World Cup’s showpiece stadium, being inaugurated at a roof-wetting ceremony on Wednesday. The week also saw the General Assembly passing a unanimous resolution to endorse the 2010 tournament as a platform for social development and peace across Africa.Jordaan invited Ban to attend the 2010 Fifa World Cup, to experience Africa in celebration.“The UN Secretary General must not only come to the continent when there is war, when he wants to talk about Darfur,” Jordaan said at a media briefing after the meeting. “He must come to Africa when Africa celebrates, when Africa excels. When there is good news, he must always be there.”Baso Sangqu, South Africa’s ambassador to the United Nations, praised the support the General Assembly had given the country’s World Cup efforts.“This resolution is the first of its kind and underpins the global support to the commitment of South Africa to not just make this another sporting event, but to ensure that it is based on the agenda for peace, development and stability for Africa – in the hope that these benefits will trickle through far beyond the final whistle,” he said.“This resolution will continue to energise and engage the United Nations to walk this path with South Africa and Africa.”last_img read more

Call for crackdown on killer lithium batteries

first_imgThe potential impact of a lithium battery fire. Photo: FAA International carriers are moving to crack down on potentially deadly lithium-ion batteries dispatched by rogue manufacturers.Consumer demand for lithium batteries is growing by 17 percent annually but the International Air transport Association warns that the number of incidents involving counterfeit or undeclared batteries from unscrupulous manufactures has also risen.READ: FAA chief confirms MAX grounding will stretch into 2020Lithium batteries are a fire risk and a danger to aircraft if not handled properly.Watch this sobering US Federal Aviation Administration video of a simulated aircraft fire caused by lithium batteries: The International Air Transport Association wants governments to crack down on manufacturers of counterfeit batteries as well as mislabelled and non-compliant shipments.It is teaming Global Shippers Forum (GSF), the International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations (FIATA) and the International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) to boost efforts on the issue.The four organizations have urged governments to introduce significant fines and penalties for those who try to circumvent the rules about the transport of lithium batteries.They argue abuses of dangerous goods shipping regulations put passenger and aircraft safety at risk and should be criminalized.The campaign includes a new incident reporting and alert system for airlines as well as an industry awareness campaign on the dangers of shipping dodgy lithium batteries.It also supports an initiative presented to the International Civil Aviation Organization that would see co-operation between aviation security, manufacturing standards, customs and consumer protection agencies.“Dangerous goods, including lithium batteries, are safe to transport if managed according to international regulations and standard,’’ said IATA senior vice president airport, passenger, cargo and security Nick Careen.“But we are seeing an increase in the number of incidents in which rogue shippers are not complying. The industry is uniting to raise awareness of the need to comply.“This includes the launching of an incident reporting tool so that information on rogue shippers is shared. And we are asking governments to get much tougher with fines and penalties”last_img read more

Survey Of Client Apps Using The Web Platform

first_imgWritten by Alex Iskold and edited byRichard MacManus.In this post, we survey a range of client applications which utilize the new webplatform. This is a follow-up to our Web Platform Primerpost a few days ago, in which we explained the building blocks of the new Webinfrastructure: The Web Computing PlatformEssentially the building blocks are foundational services from Internet companies such as Amazon,Google and Microsoft – which combine to form a Web development platform. Indeed a coupleof days we saw Amazon addto the platform with a limited beta ‘Compute’ service, called Elastic Compute Cloud. Allof these services facilitate a new breed of software: smart desktop and browserapplications that use the Web Platform as their backbone. Storage Services Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Google Maps is a clear front runner. Among other popular APIs are Flickr, Amazon,YahooMaps and del.icio.us. Also according to the ‘last 14 days’ chart, the YouTube API is on the rise.ConclusionIt is exciting to see this new wave of applications developed on top of the emergingWeb Platform. As the platform matures, we are sure to witness more and more applicationsusing it as their primary infrastructure. This allows businesses to focus on innovationand domain knowledge, rather than worrying about the scalability of their backendsystems. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market richard macmanus We start this broad category with the applications that use Amazon eCommerce Service, one of the most widely used APIs on the web. Among thesuccess stories listed on the Amazon’s page, most fall into the category of shopping and store fronts. Forexample:ActionEngine and ScanBy use the Amazon API to enable wirelessshopping.Associate-o-matic uses the Amazon API to help its customers create store fronts.Inside C uses the Amazon API to bring shopping into the instant messaging space. There are other interesting uses of the API as well. For UNIX lovers there is the Amazon Command Line interface, marketed as0-click shopping. Also there is RightCart, whichenables a web-wide shopping experience on blogs and regular sites. Note that adaptiveblue also uses theeCommerce API, to dynamically look up product information – when a user selects the titleof a book, or the name of a gadget.The most popular information API is Google Maps.A comprehensive list of usages can be found at the Google Maps Mania blog. They range fromhousing market sites to travel logs. These, however, are more mashups or utilities thanapplications – because they do not provide an end-to-end user experience, but ratherprovide a solution to a particular information problem. In general, we are seeing a bigsurge in so-called mashups fueled by Information Services and Web 2.0 APIs. Acomprehensive list of these mashups, along with APIs and other great information, ismaintained by John Musser at ProgrammableWeb.Search ServicesThe Alexa Web Search Platformwas launched in December 2005. At the time Richard wondered if it would makeAmazon a major search player. As of now there are no references to a major verticalsearch engine built on top of Alexa. The Alexa web site features a few applications – aCamera search and Zip File search – but that just scratches the surface of what is possible with the Alexa platform.I still think that this platform will pick up and we will see some really interestingvertical search applications built on it. In the meantime, the blogging community doesnot live a day without checking the Alexa Information service for traffic rankings: alexa.com and alexaholic.com.Web 2.0 ServicesThanks to del.cio.us, APIs are back in style.So-called Web 2.0 companies rush to open up their information, in order to enablecross-pollination of data and mashups. Here is the current chart of Top APIs from Programmable Web: Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… In this category there is Amazon S3 and openomy. Amazon S3has a wide variety of clients using it. Firstly, there are personal backupapplications like Jungle Disk and Elephant Drive. Another common use case for S3is storing large media files – the Amazon S3 success stories page features MediaSilo video storage and SmugMug on-line photo sharing. Awebtop application called YouOS is also using AmazonS3 to store user information. Finally, there are two other applications listed in thesuccess stories section: MyOwnDB, which allowsusers to define and store their personal information in the form database tables; and theblueorganizer smart browser extension forFirefox, developed by my [Alex’s] company adaptiveblue.The only example app using the openomy site is avery basic RSS application, built using Ruby onRails. Messaging and Compute ServicesIn the previousarticle we gave an example of a Messaging service: Amazon Simple Queue Service. There are no success stories listed on the Amazon sitefor this service but – as we noted – it is likely that Amazon.com itself utilizesthis service. After our previous article was published earlier this week, Amazon released the firstexample of a black-box compute service – called Amazon Elastic ComputeCloud. The service is currently in limited beta, but we are likely to start hearingof success stories soon.Information Services Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#web last_img read more
