Earphunk Announces New Album & Tour, Premieres Leading Single ‘Moolah’ [Listen]

first_imgNew Orleans-based prog funk masters Earphunk have some big news to share, as the group has announced their fourth studio album. Titled Right Where I Belong, the new release aptly describes just how comfortable Earphunk has become with their own sound. The new six track release sees the group playing tighter than ever, and their work with famed producer Steve Albini only underlines the band’s explosive talent.“Working with Albini was exactly what our band needed,” says vocalist/guitarist Mark Hempe. “Before this album we had an entirely different approach for studio albums. Albini is concerned about recording just how it sounds so the listener almost feels like they are in the room with the band. He made us realize the importance of the take on a song as a whole. When you’re recording straight to tape you really try to play the best you can with no mistakes, which elevates the overall take as a band for each track. In albums past we could flub a part and just overdub later on, so having your best take wasn’t as much of a concern. I think the energy and sound of this album is the most authentic we have been able to achieve thus far in a studio endeavor.”The new album is due out on October 7th, and the band is heading out on the road for an extensive tour to get fans warmed up to the new release. They’re also offering their first taste of the new album by premiering the lead single, “Moolah,” exclusively via Live for Live Music. Tune into the funky new original track below.Lead guitarist Paul Provosty weighs in on the new album and production, saying, “Recording with Steve Albini was like a dream come true. You can tell, right off the bat, his sole purpose in life is to capture the most authentic representation of a band and their music. He built his studio from scratch in Chicago and most of his clientele are independent bands such as ourselves…it shows the type of person he is and what he truly cares about.He brought the best out in us and wasn’t afraid to tell us whether a take was bad or not. We had never worked with someone as honest and direct as him, and it brought the best out in us. Right Where I Belong really represents a huge chapter in the Earphunk book and Steve helped us capture it perfectly.”The Right Where I Belong tour kicks off on August 26th, and stretches all the way through to November 12th. There’s really no excuse not to catch Earphunk deliver their New Orleans-soaked progressive funkin’ music. The new album is due out on October 7th, and we can’t wait to jam on it.

Authors defend study of nondrug measures in 1918 pandemic

first_imgJan 25, 2008 (CIDRAP News) – The authors of a 2007 study of nonpharmaceutical measures used in the 1918 influenza pandemic, responding to a critique from historian John M. Barry, argued last week that there is strong evidence that New York City used isolation and quarantine to battle the Spanish flu.In a study published in August, Dr. Howard Markel and colleagues said their analysis of historical records from 43 US cities indicated that the early use of nonpharmaceutical interventions (NPIs), such as isolating the sick and banning public gatherings, saved lives in the 1918-19 pandemic.Their study, which appeared in the Aug 8 Journal of the American Medical Association, had a major influence on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) recommendations early in 2007 for the early, targeted use of NPIs in a flu pandemic. Two of the authors, including senior author Dr. Martin Cetron, work at the CDC Division of Global Migration and Quarantine.In a letter published in JAMA in November, John M. Barry, author of the 2004 book The Great Influenza, rejected the finding of Markel et al that New York City used isolation and quarantine to combat the epidemic. He argued that the evidence about events in New York City does not support the authors’ view that NPIs were effective n 1918. Markel and colleagues responded with a letter in the same issue of JAMA.Subsequently, Barry presented his critique in much more detail in a commentary published by CIDRAP News on Nov 27 (see link below). He questioned Markel’s findings concerning not only New York City but also Chicago.Last week, with no fanfare, the CDC’s Division of Global Migration and Quarantine published a detailed online response to Barry’s critique. The response’s authors are not listed, but the presentation and referencing indicate it was written by the JAMA article authors. The response does not specifically mention Barry, referring only to “assertions made on the Internet.”Barry’s argumentThe response by Markel et al is best understood in the context of Barry’s critique. His main points were as follows:None of the New York City Department of Health’s official records, including board meeting minutes, from the pandemic period mention the use of quarantine.In looking for evidence of isolation and quarantine in New York City, Markel et al relied heavily on statements by City Health Commissioner Royal Copeland. Copeland was a homeopath, not a medical doctor, and was appointed by the city’s Democratic political machine, Tammany Hall, which had a record of putting unqualified loyalists in city jobs.In separate speeches to private physicians that were reprinted in the New York Medical Journal in October 1918, Copeland and his deputy, Louis Harris, head of the city’s Bureau of Preventable Diseases, gave a long list of actions taken to battle the flu epidemic (and some not taken), but neither mentioned isolation and quarantine. Copeland said that even were it possible “to confine every person to his or her home, it is doubtful whether the epidemic could be measurably diminished.”In statements to the New York Times, Copeland might have talked about a New York quarantine just to make the city look better in the face of reports that Jersey City was using quarantine.Concerning NPIs in Chicago, the JAMA study said the city took its first action on day minus-2, ie, 2 days before the mortality rate exceeded double the baseline rate. But (Barry wrote) at that point the city only banned public funerals, and it didn’t use any major NPIs until 21 days later (day plus-19), when it banned public gatherings in general.Quarantine orders taken seriously In their response, Markel et al write that in 1918, quarantine was a complex concept with several meanings. “There is, unfortunately, no way to quantify with exact precision the level of public compliance with any of the NPI in any of the 43 cities in our study,” they state. “When studying the broader context of epidemics of this era, however, the historical record suggests that when such public health orders were enacted, they were taken rather seriously, albeit not universally.”They go on to list various pieces of evidence that isolation and quarantine were practiced in New York City during the pandemic.As their principal evidence, the authors point to the weekly minutes of the board of the city health department for Sep 17, 1918, when the group declared influenza (along with lobar and bronchial pneumonia) a reportable disease, the same as cholera, smallpox, and plague. The city’s health code required the isolation and quarantine of those ill with the disease or suspected of having it.The day after this declaration, the city notified all resident physicians of it by letter and reminded them of their responsibility to isolate and quarantine cases, the authors write.Subsequently, “numerous articles in virtually every New York newspaper” reported the use of isolation and quarantine in the city, the authors continue. A footnote cites articles in the New York Herald, the Evening Journal, the Times, and the World.Further, the CDC article says that directors of health department hospitals were worried about running out of beds in their isolation wards because of the influx of flu patients. As evidence for this, the authors cite a Sep 24, 1918, New York Times story in which Copeland said that if the epidemic grew any further, health department hospitals would run out of space and would have to call on general hospitals for help.Also, the authors write that some private physicians in the city took the isolation and quarantine order so seriously that they placed homemade quarantine placards on the homes of flu patients. An endnote says that Copeland, in another statement to the New York Times, said that placarding by private physicians was not necessary, given that the city code required isolation or quarantine of patients.Concerning the lack of mention of quarantine in the health department’s annual report and other documents and in the speeches by Copeland and Harris, Markel et al assert that this “absence of evidence” does not equal “evidence of absence.”Interpreting Copeland’s commentsThe authors also reject the suggestion that Copeland spoke of a New York quarantine only because Jersey City had implemented a quarantine policy. They say this suggestion seems to have been inaccurately derived from a New York Times article that happened to report on the Jersey City quarantine immediately after mentioning New York’s.Further, the study authors say that in his comment about the futility of trying to fight the epidemic by confining every person at home, Copeland meant what he actually said, and was not talking only about isolation of patients and quarantine of contacts.In an endnote, the authors discuss Copeland’s political affiliation and training. They assert that his Tammany affiliation does not necessarily mean he was incompetent and that despite being a homeopathic physician, he was trained in and had a deep appreciation for allopathic medicine.The study authors also reject Barry’s suggestion that a possible reason for New York’s and Chicago’s relatively mild experiences in the 1918 pandemic was that many residents might have developed some immunity during the first wave of flu in the spring of 1918. Their study revealed no statistical associations between flu-related excess mortality rates in each city during the four successive waves of influenza from spring 1918 through the winter of 1920.Regarding the Chicago experience, the authors said they reran their analysis using different dates for the initiation of NPIs and got essentially the same results. They changed the date marking the first NPI from Sep 26, when public funerals for flu patients were banned, to Oct 1, when isolation of flu patients was ordered. They also changed the date for the general ban on public gatherings to Oct 17. With these dates, the correlations of public health actions with excess death rates and total excess deaths remained about the same.See also: Commentary by the JAMA authors, published on the CDC Division of Global Migration and Quarantine sitehttp://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dq/1918_commentary.htmCommentary by author John M.

ESF cross-country captures 4th consecutive USCAA championship

first_img Published on November 12, 2014 at 12:02 am As the season’s first snow fell through the air above Drumlins Country Club, a familiar sight was unfolding on the field below. Runners representing more than 60 schools ran the rain-soaked course, hoping to top the champions on their home turf.But despite their best efforts, the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry Mighty Oaks once again came out victorious.The Mighty Oaks won their fourth consecutive United States Collegiate Athletic Association men’s cross-country championships Friday, cementing their place as a powerhouse in collegiate running.Led by first-year graduate student Timmy Callahan, who was the race’s overall winner in his final year of athletic eligibility, the Oaks were able to defend their title once more. For Callahan, who also won the 2013 race, there was no better way to end his running career.“It meant so much to perform well on our home course in front of students, staff, friends and family,” Callahan said. “The win means more than just to me or the team, but to all the people that have supported us in our running community. This is a victory for ESF and Syracuse.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textA large part of that victory came from the guidance of head coach John View, who in his four years leading the Oaks has transformed the team from a little-known, three-year-old program to a perennial national champion.View refuses to take total credit for the team’s success, instead attributing that to the efforts made by his student-athletes and assistant coaches to build the team into a contender each year.“I just hope that people recognize consistency across the board,” View said. “I want to be a consistent coach. I like to think that four championships is the result of hard work by the athletes, and hard work by the coaches to mentor them, work with them and listen to them.”Hard work has been the standard for View’s runners, who are not recruited by the school and do not receive athletic scholarships. Inclusion is another pillar of the Oaks’ success, as View holds open tryouts and does not make cuts to the team.The athletic policies of View and ESF are increasingly rare in collegiate sports, where it often seems that talented students are acquired by most schools in an athletic arms race to create the most talented team possible.That the Oaks have been so successful despite these policies might be a surprise to outsiders, but to those running for ESF it makes perfect sense.“He has led us through a great training regimen,” senior runner Jacob Wolfgong said. “(He) also encouraged us to push ourselves in our academics and other pursuits, and that makes running for him a lot of fun.”It remains to be seen how the Oaks will fare after the loss of their best runner in Callahan, but View is confident his players will step up and continue their success. It helps that his star runner will continue to help his teammates, even if he can no longer run with them. Callahan will be joining the coaching staff as an assistant next season.“As I have told the underclassmen, Timmy’s time has passed us now,” View said. “It’s time for the underclassmen who will be back here next year and for the new students coming in to look inside themselves and say ‘Do I want to be someone like Timmy Callahan?’” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

ESI Gambling Report: Outright markets limited on League Worlds

first_imgWhilst it’s undeniable that the depth and availability of markets in esports has grown exponentially over the last six to twelve months, there’s still aspects that haven’t quite grown to match that of the traditional sports offering. Namely, in the outright market during major tournaments.At the moment the League of Legends World Championship is well underway, with the second week of the group stages currently taking place. With day two finished, there’s a lull in the action until early tomorrow morning where action will resume. For many, League of Legends World Championships is the biggest esports tournament (by viewership) and many bookmakers will suggest League remains the most punted on esport, and thus one would assume that the markets on offer would be the best available.For the matches beginning tomorrow and Sunday, the offering is not disappointing. With markets we’ve become familiar with such as “Race to 10 kills”, “First Baron Slain” and “First Inhibitor Destroyed” still featuring prominently across a multitude of bookmakers there’s no shortage of markets for those who want to have a bet in advance.The gripe here, and it may be petty, is the lack of operators offering a market on “outright winner” of the entire tournament. Every bookmaker will offer outright odds on the World Cup winner, or the Champions League winner throughout the season even as competition progresses and that’s arguably the way it should be.Of a selection of the top esports bookmakers: Betway, Unikrn, Sky Bet, William Hill, Pinnacle, GG.Bet, Marathon Bet and Bet365, only Bet365 and Sky Bet have any outright markets up currently. There’s no shortage, either on Bet365, with “To Win Outright”, “Player of the Tournament”, “To Reach the Final”, “Region of Winner”, “Winner’s Group”, “Group Qualification” and “Group Betting” all still available for users looking to bet on anything outside of the match betting markets. Sky Bet on the other hand has a special price boost on RNG or SSG to win at 9/2, whilst still pricing the “Win Outright” market, too. Esports Insider says: Considering the complexity of some of the markets for match betting, it’s probably not too difficult for operators to keep the outright markets available for punters throughout a tournament. They’re rarely seen for several tournaments, but with League’s World Championship the most watched it’s one that many may expect to see it on. Again, it may be petty but it’s something that would help elevate the esports betting offering even higher. Credit to 365 and Sky Bet, though.last_img read more
