Turbo Suit, Formerly Known As Cosby Sweater, Calls It Quits

first_imgAfter four years of touring the country, playing a ton of festivals, and supporting some of the biggest acts in the jam/livetronica scene, Turbo Suit (formerly known as Cosby Sweater) is calling it quits. The Indianapolis, IN-based trio, made up David Embry (guitar/vocals/live mixing), Nicholas Gerlach (sax/EWI/keys) and Jeff Peterson (drums), with the “sensual sax melodies and ultra-accessible beats” has decided to part ways. They have announced their appearance at Electric Forest will be the group’s final performance. We wish each member the best of luck in their future endeavors.  Here is a statement the band released via their Facebook page:Over the last 4 years, we have had the opportunity to do some amazing things. We started this project with no intentions of ever going as far as we did with our little group. We’ve played countless festivals, venues that we could only dream of playing, and have opened for bands that we’ve looked up to for years. We made lots of friends and fans over the years and are so grateful for all the opportunities that we were given to make you forget about this crazy world we live in, even if for just an hour or two.Without going on and on and dragging this whole thing out, we would like to announce that next week at Electric Forest will be our last show. So please, let us not be sad that this is ending, but celebrate that it even happened in the first place. Thank you guys so much for letting us do what we do. We love you.Turbo Suit – Asheville Music Hall – 2/6/16, courtesy of I Am Asheville:last_img read more

ASF remains a threat to NegOcc

The seized products were brought from the United States as pasalubong but were transshipped inLuzon, Lacson said. Last month, Lacson and Vice Gov.Jeffrey Ferrer signed Provincial Ordinance 2019-024, otherwise known as “TheASF Prevention Ordinance of Negros Occidental”, to keep the province ASF-free. Violators may face penalties rangingfrom P1,000 to P5,000 and imprisonment of one year, depending on the gravity ofthe offense. The seized luncheon meat andsausages were disposed of in the vicinity of the Philippine National PoliceAviation Security Station on Sunday, with the consent of the owner.center_img Lacson’s remark came after theProvincial ASF Task Force in Negros Occidental seized 56 cans of processed porkproducts that passed through the Bacolod-Silay Airport in the past days.

Should the Raiders draft an offensive skill player early?

Leonard, Raptors to face Antetokounmpo-led Bucks in East final

first_imgLATEST STORIES Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting Leonard and the Raptors will have a few hours to enjoy it; the conference final begin Wednesday night in Milwaukee. In its only other conference final appearance, Toronto lost to LeBron James and Cleveland in six games in 2016.The Raptors are well aware of the challenge ahead.Toronto guard Kyle Lowry said the Bucks have been “pretty dominant” in winning eight of nine postseason games — including the past four straight.“They’ve got a lot of weapons and they’re pretty deep,” Lowry said. “They shoot the ball as well as anybody in the NBA and then they’ve got the one-man fast break in Giannis.”The Bucks beat the Raptors three times in four regular-season meetings. Lowry was injured when Toronto won 123-116 at Milwaukee on Jan.5.ADVERTISEMENT “We know we’ve got a tough task at hand,” Lowry said. “We have to prepare for it and get ready to go.”Toronto coach Nick Nurse said the Bucks present challenges his team hasn’t faced in eliminating Orlando and Philadelphia in the first two rounds.“It’s a little different style that we’re going to see,” Nurse said. “We’re going to have to adjust to that really quickly, obviously, and forget about how happy we are pretty quickly because it’s a hungry team. It’s a very deep team, a very good team. We’re going to have to continue to grow and we’re going to have to play better.”Leonard scored 41 points on 16-of-39 shooting in Game 7 against Philadelphia. He topped 30 points five times in the series and averaged 34.7 points overall.Nurse said Leonard has been playing at an “elite level” in the postseason. Toronto center Marc Gasol agrees with his coach.Leonard “can create a shot out of pretty much nothing,” Gasol said. “He’s a mismatch all around.”In Antetokounmpo, the Bucks have a similar matchup nightmare for Toronto.The Raptors will need contributions for everyone, including Lowry — who briefly left Game 7 because of a sprained left thumb but returned and played the entire second half.“I couldn’t really pass the ball and grip the ball, but that doesn’t matter,” Lowry said. “I’m fine.”Milwaukee has been resting since eliminating Boston in Game 5 on Wednesday. Cayetano: Senate, Drilon to be blamed for SEA Games mess BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS – MAY 06: Giannis Antetokounmpo #34 of the Milwaukee Bucks looks on during the second quarter of Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Boston Celtics during the 2019 NBA Playoffs at TD Garden on May 06, 2019 in Boston, Massachusetts.

Why wind turbines annoy residents and how to reduce the problem

Examining noise produced by wind power plants Citation: Why wind turbines annoy residents and how to reduce the problem (2018, January 25) retrieved 18 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-01-turbines-residents-problem.html Journal information: Energy Policy More information: Johannes Pohl et al, Understanding stress effects of wind turbine noise – The integrated approach, Energy Policy (2017). DOI: 10.1016/j.enpol.2017.10.007 Explore further Provided by Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg When falling asleep, relaxing or undertaking recreational activities, nearly a third of residents living near a wind farm report that they are not at all annoyed, or only slightly annoyed by the noise of wind turbines. One in 10 people experience symptoms of stress, such as irritability or difficulty falling asleep. However, noise is not the only problem for those affected, according to psychologists at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) in the current issue of the journal Energy Policy. According to the study, a better information policy during the planning phase could help alleviate problems for residents. This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. In their study, environmental psychologists working with Prof Gundula Hübner and Dr Johannes Pohl from MLU investigated a wind farm in northern Germany from 2012 to 2014. They conducted surveys of residents, and their project partner, UL International GmbH (UL DEWI), analysed sound recordings of wind turbines. The psychologists even took weather into account. This allowed the researchers to discover that the noise from wind turbines is perceived more when humidity is high and when there is frost.Another result: Symptoms of stress were reported at least once a month by the nearly 10 percent of participants surveyed who said they felt annoyed by the wind turbines. “Symptoms include problems falling asleep, disturbed sleep in general, a negative mood, and high irritability,” explains Pohl. By comparison, 16 percent of the participants surveyed said that they suffer from such symptoms at least once a month as a result of traffic noise.When the psychologists re-surveyed the residents two years later, the proportion of people suffering from at least one concrete symptom had fallen to 6.8 percent. “Many residents get used to the noise from the wind farm or they have resigned themselves to it. A good one-fourth of those affected close their windows at night so that they are no longer disturbed by the noise,” says Pohl. It is notable that the people who continued to have the biggest problem with wind turbines were those who were already very critical of the wind farm. This group showed little interest in learning ways to cope with the stress, says the researcher. This shows how difficult it is to change established attitudes. The environmental psychologists at the University of Halle therefore recommend proactively addressing the residents’ problems and concerns during the planning phase. “The way the residents experience the planning and construction phase is a decisive indicator of how strongly or weakly they will be impaired in the long run by the wind farm.” Pohl concludes. Therefore, it is important to create the most positive experience possible. This could happen, for example, through early information campaigns and community meetings. Furthermore, residents should be included in the planning wherever possible.Several residents had also prepared recordings of annoying noise at night. These were analysed by the researchers at DEWI. “The wind and the movement of the rotor blades can cause amplitude modulation, in other words, an irregular pulsating of the volume. These irregularities are what annoy some of the residents, something which they perceive to be irregular humming or swooshing,” says Dr. Johannes Pohl from the Institute of Psychology at MLU. A quiet, steady background noise is easier to ignore, says the researcher. Most of the complaints occurred in the night or in the early morning hours when there are fewer other noises. According to the study, however, the proximity of the resident’s home to the wind farm had little significant influence on their annoyance.The psychologists from Halle will incorporate their study’s findings into the project “TremAc,” which is being funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. As part of the project, 10 university and commercial research institutes are working on a new concept for predicting noise and vibrations caused by wind farms. This model should allow the interplay between these two factors to be understood and predicted better, with the aim of making the noise emitted by wind turbines more pleasant for those affected. To this end, acoustic and seismic measurements, as well as surveys covering aspects of environmental psychology and medicine are being conducted at two wind farms. read more
