Members of The Allman Brothers Band Return To The Road As Les Brers [HD Videos]

first_imgWhile no one could have ever been prepared to say goodbye, the Allman Brothers Band officially closed their doors in October of 2014. It was difficult for everyone, including the members of the band, to call it the “end.” While virtually every member of the band is still touring in some capacity, the seven members have yet to share the same stage since.At the 2015 Peach Music Festival, Butch Trucks & Friends were billed to play. He put together several members of the Allmans and some other all-star musicians who had relationships with the band for one mind-blowing set, that had everyone walking away in pure disbelief. The energy on that stage was unlike anything the ABB had experienced in years, and according to Butch, it felt much like the earlier days of the NOLA Warehouse back when Duane Allman was alive.Now officially called Les Brers, original drummers Butch and Jaimoe are fully committed to bringing their energetically-charged band on the road, after their successful return to the Peach and headlining slot at Wanee Music Festival. The band is complete with ABB’s latest rhythm section, including bassist Oteil Burbridge and percussionist Marc Quinones. Before them, stand guitar master Jack Pearson, who played with the Allmans from 1997-99, his guitar mate Pat Bergeson, along with longtime collaborator Bruce Katz on keys, and Lamar Williams, Jr., son of bassist Lamar Williams who played with ABB from 1972-76, belting the vocals. The show is a complete force that you wouldn’t believe unless you saw it for yourself.With the first leg of their tour almost over, it’s worth looking back on some spectacular moments shared by these eight members. Between the Allman Brothers originals and some traditionally-covered classics, the ABB blood runs thick.

Alleviating radiation sickness

first_imgA combination of two drugs may alleviate radiation sickness in people who have been exposed to high levels of radiation, even when the therapy is given a day after the exposure occurred, according to a study led by scientists from Harvard-affiliated Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) and Children’s Hospital Boston.Mouse studies of other potential therapies suggest they would be effective in humans only if administered within a few minutes or hours of radiation exposure, making them impractical for use in response to events involving mass casualties.  In contrast, the larger time window for administering the two-drug regimen raises the prospect that it could become a mainstay of the response to public health threats such as a nuclear power plant accident or nuclear terror attack.In a paper published online by the journal Science Translational Medicine, the scientists report the beneficial effects, in mice, of a combination of a fluoroquinolone antibiotic (similar to the commonly used human antibiotic ciprofloxacin, or “Cipro”) and a synthetic version of the natural human infection-fighting protein BPI. Mice that received the combination a day after being exposed to high doses of radiation fared far better than mice that received neither or only one of the agents. Whereas radiation exposures of that magnitude almost always prove fatal within a month, 80 percent of the mice that received the two agents were alive and apparently healthy a month into the study.The study’s lead author is Eva Guinan of Dana-Farber, and the senior author is Ofer Levy of Children’s Hospital Boston. Guinan is an associate professor of radiation oncology and Levy is an assistant professor of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School.The investigators also found that the ability to generate new blood cells — which can shut down in the aftermath of radiation exposure — rebounded much more quickly and vigorously in the mice treated with fluoroquinolone and rBPI21 (the synthetic version of BPI), potentially contributing to their return to health.“Both fluoroquinolone antibiotics and rBPI21 have been shown to be quite safe in humans,” said Levy. “Their combined effectiveness in our study involving mice is an indication that they may be equally beneficial in people.”The research potentially represents a major step in the United States government’s efforts to build a stockpile of therapies to counter radiological dangers.“There is great interest in creating systems for dealing with the short- and long-term health risks of a significant release of radiation, whether from an accident at a nuclear power plant, an act of terrorism, or even a small-scale incident in which a CT machine malfunctions,” said Guinan. “Developing useful agents has proven difficult.  Most existing drugs aren’t effective enough and must be given within a very short time frame to provide any benefit.  The recent disaster at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan illustrates the need for agents that can be deployed rapidly to treat large populations.”Radiation sickness, also known as acute radiation syndrome, varies with the amount of radiation an individual receives.  The first signs of the disease usually are nausea and vomiting, which can be followed by fever, dizziness, weakness, bloody vomit and stools, difficulty breathing, and infection. The body’s blood-making tissue, nervous system, digestive tract, lungs, and cardiovascular system all can be affected.  At very high doses, radiation is usually fatal.Within the body, the effects of heavy radiation may include leakage of bacteria and the toxins they produce into the bloodstream from the digestive tract or through broken skin.  Radiation effects play havoc with the function of the heart and lungs, disrupt the process of blood coagulation, and inflame tissue throughout the body.When bacteria or certain toxins enter the blood under normal conditions, the body’s immune system responds by dispatching neutrophils — white blood cells — to destroy the intruders.  The neutrophils release a payload of BPI (bactericidal/permeability-increasing protein), which sticks tightly to molecules called endotoxins on the surface of the bacteria.  The binding not only helps BPI kill the bacteria but also blocks inflammation caused by live or dead bacteria — something that conventional antibiotics do not do.When a person is exposed to high levels of radiation, however, the ability to generate neutrophils is almost obliterated.  “It’s a perfect storm of disease-causing events,” Guinan said. “Radiation results in bacteria and endotoxins entering the bloodstream at the same time that the body’s defenses are lowered.”The treatment approach developed by Guinan, Levy, and their colleagues takes direct aim at two potential contributors to radiation sickness: bacteria and the endotoxins on their surfaceIn the study, researchers exposed mice to radiation levels of 7 gray (by comparison, the amount emitted by a standard X-ray machine is 0.01 grays.)  At those levels, radiation is 95 percent lethal to mice within 30 days.Twenty-four hours after the radiation exposure, researchers began treating some of the mice with daily doses of fluoroquinolone antibiotic, some with twice-daily doses of rBPI21, and some with both.  The mice that received both agents not only had much higher survival rates than the others, but their ability to generate new blood cells also recovered much more quickly.The promise of this approach is underscored by the nature of the two agents, the study authors said.  Both have a proven safety record in humans and can be stored for long periods of time, making them suitable for stockpiling.The current study is the product of five years of work and collaboration between Levy, Guinan, and their associates.  “My experience in the field of stem cell transplantation, including the use of total-body irradiation, and caring for patients with diseases of the bone marrow has been a perfect complement to Ofer’s expertise in neutrophil function and innate immunity [the arm of the immune system that is the first line of defense against infection],” Guinan said. “This result is a promising new strategy for response to a nuclear event.”Funding for the study was provided by the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the Dana Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, the G. Green Foundation, and the Shea Family Fund.Co-authors of the study include Christine Barbon, Kalindi Parmar, Janice Russell, Annie Voskertchian, Geoffrey Cole, Kaya Zhu, Alan D’Andrea, and Robert Soiffer all of Dana-Farber; Leslie Kalish, Christy Mancuso, Liat Stoler-Barak, Eugenie Suter, Christine Palmer, Leighanne Gallington, and Jo-Anne Vergilio all of Children’s Hospital Boston; Jeff Kutok of Brigham and Women’s Hospital; and Jerrold Weiss of the University of Iowa.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=/RuQeluaXQIA]last_img read more

Romance can flourish in the beginning of the month if you let it. Don’t let your business instincts get the better of your social ones and don’t assume that business matters need to be all about business.Gemini – Your Sun is conjunct Mars which emphasizes the value of interpersonal contacts in professional matters. These contacts may bear pleasant fruit during the first half of the month. Don’t take on too many commitments or you’ll find yourself frazzled.Cancer – Your ruling planet conjunct Venus and Jupiter means indulge. A bit of self-indulgence may not be out of place. If you live the good life, others around you benefit merely by basking in the rays. By the end of the month you realize that home is where the heart is and will want to stay there lounging around with loved ones.Leo – Venus and Jupiter in your first house brings numerous ways to express your affection for another without spending a fortune. A sentimental card may do the trick. Don’t count on late month romantic intrigues to last, but do notice how nice it is to feel inspired. Virgo – Your ruling planet in the 10th house makes a good time to re-evaluate shared assets and joint account. Working cooperatively with others is absolutely essential now.

It’s possible that this time you could find just what you are looking for! Emotional ties are deep and meaningful.Pisces – You could have an irresistible urge to do something just for the fun of it. Why not? You could be fascinated by a new individual, an unusual place or activity.IF YOU KNOW YOUR RISING SIGN, CONSULT THE HOROSCOPE FOR THAT SIGN AS WELL.Psychicdeb has been a professional astrologer for over 25 yrs.

Governor Wolf, PennDOT Announce Completion of State’s First Diverging Diamond Interchange

first_imgGovernor Wolf, PennDOT Announce Completion of State’s First Diverging Diamond Interchange August 17, 2017 SHARE Email Facebook Twittercenter_img Infrastructure,  Press Release,  Transportation Washington, PA –  Governor Tom Wolf today joined the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, as well as local and elected officials, to mark the completion of the state’s first Diverging Diamond Interchange, or DDI, an innovative safety enhancement that upgraded and rehabilitated Interstate 70 from the north junction with I-79 to the Route 136 (Beau Street) Interchange.“Our transportation mission is to keep people and goods moving safety and efficiently, and this project brings some of the latest industry improvements home for Pennsylvanians,” Governor Wolf said. “This interchange improves travel for the public and businesses, a goal that I’m committed to across the state.”As part of its efforts to increase safety and mobility on I-70 in Washington and Westmoreland counties, PennDOT chose the DDI design because it could use much of the same footprint as the previous, substandard cloverleaf interchange, it minimized impacts to area businesses, and it would increase mobility and safety on I-70 and Route 19.The first of its kind in the state and 73rd in the country, the DDI is similar to a standard diamond interchange but has three distinct differences:Traffic on Route 19 crosses over to the opposite or left side of the roadway within the interchange area.The left turn movements from Route 19 to the I-70 on ramps occur from the far-left side of the roadway eliminating the need to cross opposing travel lanes. The benefit is free flow left turns onto the I-70 ramps.The left-turn movements from the I-70 exit ramps to Route 19 do not need to cross opposing travel lanes to gain access to the desired lanes on Route 19.“As we maintain and upgrade our infrastructure across the state, we continually look for opportunities to put improved practices to work,” PennDOT Secretary Leslie S. Richards said. “This project brings together sorely needed improvements to safety and traffic movement alike.”The interchange features guiding signage, pavement markings and additional arrows in the travel lanes to guide motorists through the DDI. Curbed islands were constructed to help guide motorists through the cross-overs and a concrete glare screen was installed between the cross overs along Route 19 to prevent distraction by motorists travelling in the opposite direction on the motorist’s right side. Also, traffic signals have two phases, unlike three or more phases at other interchanges and intersections, improving traffic flow due to fewer traffic cross points.The department also developed a video simulation to show the DDI’s traffic flow to the public. The video and information on other I-70 improvements are available at www.I-70Projects.com.The $51.6 million project complements PennDOT’s work to improve safety and mobility in the area, including reconstructing I-70 between the junctions with I-79, adding a third lane in each direction and improving the interchange with Route 19 (Murtland Avenue) in South Strabane Township, Washington County.Richards noted that the interchange upgrade is an example of how more work is needed on roads across the state, especially low traffic roads and Interstates. In February, Governor Wolf and PennDOT announced PennDOT’s Road Maintenance and Preservation initiative, or Road MaP, which will invest $2.1 billion in maintenance and highway and bridge capital projects over the next 10 years. Of the projects, $500 million will be allocated to an Interstate preservation and reconstruction program, bringing that total program, begun in 2016, to $1 billion over the next 10 years.For more information on projects occurring or being bid this year, those made possible by or accelerated by the state transportation funding plan (Act 89), or those on the department’s Four and Twelve Year Plans, visit www.projects.penndot.gov.Motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles by visiting www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 825 traffic cameras.511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional Twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.For more PennDOT information, visit www.penndot.gov.

The Gold Coast’s median house price has jumped 12.5 per cent in the last three years. In 1998 the its median house price was just $185,000. It is ranked 6th for population, behind Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide. “Based on its population of 606,000 people, Gold Coast is Australia’s sixth largest metropolis,” Mr Pressley said. “Ranked Australia’s 14th most expensive location, Gold Coast’s median house price is higher than Australia’s third largest city, Brisbane (with a) median house price of $550,000.” Byron Bay not only has pricey property, but it also has heart-throb Chris Hemsworth. The Gold Coast also featured on the national top 40 list with a $632,500 median house price, ranked 14th most expensive, behind Tweed with a $650,000 median. Propertyology head of research Simon Pressley said house prices in Byron Bay were likely to continue to rise, widening the gap between Sydney and Melbourne, where prices were falling. “Byron’s median house price increased by a whopping 64 per cent over the past five calendar years, propelling it to the top of the national table,” he said. “Sydney and Melbourne both produced a 44 per cent increase over the same five years to be $950,000 and $772,500, respectively.” MORE NEWS: Mega mansion relisted with price hikeMORE NEWS: Purplebricks exits Australian market after failure to take off Byron Bay’s median house price was a mere $140,000 in 1998, with its growth put down to location and a laid-back lifestyle. “It’s staggering that Byron has averaged double-digit growth every single year for two decades. I doubt whether there’s another city anywhere in the world that has done that,” Mr Pressley said. “Byron is only a two-hour drive up the highway to Brisbane or a one-hour flight to Sydney via Ballina, plus the Gold Coast international airport is also only an hour away.” Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ) Gold Coast Chairman Andrew Henderson said Byron’s rise to No. 1 might be thanks to its celebrity residents. “It’s not a surprise given the amount of celebrity personalities that now call Byron Bay home,” he said. “The aura that has been created around the town has probably lead it to that position.“Plus there is very limited availability in the area, that supply and demand probably assisted.”last_img read more
