Now, coinciding with his final ride, Simon has announced that he will release a new album, In The Blue Light, on September 7th.As Simon explains in the album’s behind-the-scenes announcement video titled “The Story of In The Blue Light”,The idea was to take songs that I thought were really good songs, but didn’t get much attention when they first came out.” The album features guest contributions from Wynton Marsalis, Bill Frisell, yMusic, and more.

But this is less a goodbye than a farewell. Thank you all for the ride, I had a great time.”For a full list of Simon’s farewell tour dates, see below.

Dolly Parton Honored With Inaugural “Dolly Parton Excellence in Leadership Award” In Tennessee

first_imgThere are few figures in the music and entertainment industry who loom as large as Dolly Parton. The award-winning singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, actress, businesswoman, author, and philanthropist is the most-honored female country artist of all time, and her exploits outside the world of country music have made her a beloved international personality on many fronts.However, despite her 50+ years worth of fame and accolades, Dolly has never forgotten where she came from. She grew up in rural Tennessee as one of 12 children. While her father never went to school nor learned to read and write, he was an admirable leader of his large family. Dolly maintains that despite his scholarly shortcomings, her father was the smartest man she ever knew.This weekend, the non-profit organization Leadership Tennessee honored Dolly Parton with the first-ever Dolly Parton Excellence in Leadership Award at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville. The award will be given out yearly to future state residents who follow Dolly’s example.Back in February, Parton was honored for the work done by her non-profit foundation, Imagination Library, which celebrated 100M books donated to children in need. Inspired by her father, Parton launched Imagination Library in 1995 with the mission of promoting and nurturing literacy in young children by sending one new book per month to families in need from their kids’ birth all the way through kindergarten.More recently, Parton spearheaded fundraisers to help victims of the 2016 East Tennessee wildfires, including the “Smoky Mountains Rise” telethon that featured Kenny Rogers, Hank Williams Jr., Alison Krauss, and Chris Stapleton–raising over 12.5 million dollars for wildfire victims.“My dream was to make as many people happy as I could in this life, and I am grateful to Leadership Tennessee and First Lady Crissy Haslam for recognizing our work done to improve the lives of all Tennesseans,” Parton expressed. “Even more humbling is for decades to come the future leaders of Tennessee will receive an award with the Parton family name attached to it, and for that I am truly honored and thankful.”[via Rolling Stone]last_img read more

4-H Camping.

first_img Georgia 4-H campers learn about sailing the best way: by doing it. Photo: Mike Isbell Bernoulli must have been a smart fellow.You’ve forgotten who Bernoulli was? Well, just think back a few years to your science classes (OK, it may have been a lot of years). Daniel Bernoulli was the guy who came up with the theory that, basically, the faster a fluid moves past an object, the less sideways pressure is exerted on the object by the fluid.And why am I telling you this? It’s just one of the things 4-H’ers will learn at 4-H camp this summer. They will not only learn about it, but will experience it.Let me explain.Five 4-H CampsThe University of Georgia Extension Service operates five 4-H camps around the state. Each year more than 9,000 kids attend one of these 4-H camps. The camp at Rock Eagle is the largest (it’s also the largest 4-H camp in the world). Sixty college students (all of whom have had years of 4-H experience) provide the leadership for the camp at Rock Eagle.Very soon, 4-H’ers will be attending camp from every county in Georgia. It will not only be great fun for the 4-H’ers, but they will have fun learning all kinds of things.Sailing at Rock EagleSailing is one of the classes taught at Rock Eagle. A whole fleet of sailboats is on the 110-acre lake there. After receiving some training, the 4-H’ers get to sail their own boat.A few years ago I was asked to develop a new sailing curriculum for the counselors at Rock Eagle. The counselors who teach sailing change each year, so each year I have the enjoyable job of teaching the sailing instructors how to sail.Yesterday, my 15-year-old daughter Lindsay and my nephew Bo, a senior at Virginia Tech, went with me to Rock Eagle to teach the sailing instructors. Lindsay has been sailing many times. In fact, she can even boast of surviving a sinking sailboat on West Point Lake. Bo, on the other hand, had never been on a sailboat, even though his dad spent 20 years in the Navy and he’s spent his entire life near the ocean. Bo’s a surfer, but not a sailor.Wait — How Does This Work?We spent about 15 minutes rigging the boats, and after donning life jackets, raised the sail, turned the bow into the wind and climbed aboard. We immediately began to sail into the wind.It didn’t take but just a minute, but the first of Bo’s many questions was, “How does this sailboat sail against the wind?” 4-H’ers in the sailing class will know the answer, and they will also know about Archimedes and his theory used in explaining how boats float.But to answer Bo’s question — well, it has to do with the design of the sail and the boat. And the design makes use of Bernoulli’s theory.Do you remember now?How It WorksHis theory is used to explain how an airplane wing and a sailboat sail produce “lift.” The lift is a force created by the “airfoil,” the cross-sectional shape of the wing or the sail. If you’re around planes or sails, you know the shape of an airfoil. The fluid in this case is air.I can almost hear you saying, “But a sail is a flat piece of fabric. It doesn’t look anything like an airplane wing.”Well, that’s true. It is flat. But when the wind fills the sail with air, it takes the shape of an airfoil and then produces lift similar to an airplane wing. The appendages below the water — the rudder and the centerboard or keel — help turn this lift into forward motion.Bernoulli must have been a smart fellow!last_img read more

Indian factory workers supplying major brands allege routine exploitation

first_img– Advertisement – The garment industry draws more attention because it’s driven by exports and counts some of the world’s biggest brands as among its clients. India is the world’s second-largest manufacturer and exporter of garments after China. India’s garment makers directly employ about 12.9 million people in factories and millions more outside, including their own homes, according to a 2019 report that investigated working conditions in the sector.- Advertisement –last_img read more

House deputy speaker reported for not allowing supervisory hearing for Djoko Tjandra’s case

first_imgMAKI, however, claimed that House Speaker Puan Maharani had agreed to the hearing proposal.Read also: Fugitive Djoko Tjandra skips another hearing, reportedly residing in MalaysiaBoyamin argued that hearings during recess were allowed and would not violate Bamus’ decision as long as the commission was granted permission.“We have seen many hearings during previous breaks,” Boyamin argued, adding that it was also possible for the meeting to be conducted virtually, if necessary.“Azis Syamsudin may have violated the code of ethics by hindering the House in undergoing its supervisory role,” he added, suspecting Azis to have “other interests” in relation to the matter. Commission III member Hinca Pandjaitan deplored the prohibition of the planned hearing, saying that Article 53 of the House’s code of conduct allowed House commissions to conduct supervisory hearings during recess to handle urgent matters.“It is related to a fundamental subject and it is a part of the House’s function. Thus, it is necessary,” the Democratic Party politician said.Djoko, a convict in the high-profile Bank Bali corruption case, has remained at large for more than a decade ever since he fled to Papua New Guinea after being sentenced to two years’ imprisonment and ordered to pay Rp 546 billion (US$37 million) in restitution by the Supreme Court in June 2009.He reportedly returned to Indonesia without being detected by the immigration office and filed a review of his case in early June. He was able to obtain a new electronic identification card and passport and had his red notice status lifted.Three high-ranking police officers have been removed from their posts over their alleged involvement in helping the fugitive travel within the country.Topics : Azis said on Tuesday that he decided not to grant permission for the hearing because the House was in recess until Aug. 13.“Let’s not argue about administrative matters because I don’t want to disobey the House’s code of conduct and the House’s Steering Committee’s [Bamus] decision prohibiting any hearings during recess,” the Golkar Party politician said in a statement on Tuesday.He went on to say that lawmakers were able to make work-related visits during the recess, thus he recommended that Commission III conduct a field inspection with relevant authorities in relation to the issuance of Djoko’s travel letter.“The rules are supposed to be adhered to by all House members. I can’t think of why anyone would be so persistent to demand a hearing for Djoko Tjandra’s case,” Azis added. The Indonesian Anticorruption Community (MAKI) reported House of Representatives Deputy Speaker Azis Syamsudin to the House’s ethics council on Tuesday for prohibiting lawmakers from holding a hearing during recess to discuss the case of fugitive Djoko Soegiarto Tjandra.House Commission III, which oversees legal affairs, initially planned to hold a hearing with the National Police, the Attorney General’s Office (AGO) and the Law and Human Rights Ministry over the issuance of a travel letter for Djoko by police officers, which had also been reported by MAKI to the commission.“The hearing is an urgent matter as it will help the government solve the case. It will also provide a recommendation to further trace those involved in helping Djoko,” MAKI coordinator Boyamin Saiman said in a statement on Tuesday.last_img read more

LPFA, Lancashire ‘anticipate’ GMPF tie-up amid pooling shortfall

first_imgIt is one of the most advanced of the partnerships, having last year named Michael O’Higgins as its chairman, but, with combined assets of approximately £11bn (€14bn), it is unclear whether it will gain the DCLG’s approval, as it does not yet meet the £25bn asset target set by the government.The LPFA acknowledges this shortfall in its response to the DCLG:“We welcome the government’s ambition to achieve pooling within the sector but recognise the ALM Partnership will be required to expand its pool to achieve [its] target criteria,” it said.It confirms the partnership’s “commitment to wider pooling” and sets out the discussions it has had with LPGS “groupings and individual funds” to date and the outlook in this regard.It has exchanged letters of intent and is in discussions “around how to best work together” with the Greater Manchester Pension Fund (GMPF), the Merseyside Pension Fund (MPF) and the West Yorkshire Pension Fund (WYPF).The funds have total assets of around £35bn.The GMPF is the largest local authority fund in the UK (£17.6bn), with substantial in-house management.The LPFA refers to the “very significant in-house expertise” of all three of the northern funds in its consultation submission.“Given the timescale, discussions are at an early stage,” it said. “But the next steps between now and July are for all participants to develop a proposal around how the pooling arrangement will work and meet the government’s criteria.“All parties anticipate the discussions reaching a successful conclusion.”The LPFA already works with the GMPF on infrastructure, having in January last year launched a £500m investment vehicle for infrastructure and alternative assets – the joint venture announced its first investment in October.As concerns the new pooling arrangements called for by the government, the LPFA and its Lancashire partner have also had talks with the Royal County of Berkshire Pension Fund.The LPFA noted that Berkshire “has indicated in a paper to their Pension Fund Committee that the ALM Partnership pool will be their preferred route for pooling purposes”.The LPFA and LCPF “hope to include Berkshire in the wider pooling discussions”, they said.For its part, the Berkshire Pension Fund in its draft response to the government noted that it agreed that “Officers should continue discussions with the London Pensions Fund Authority and Lancashire County Council and other nascent pools”. Further cost savingsThe LPFA and Lancashire County Council are aiming to start pooling all assets from April, with the expectation that the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) will approve the operating vehicle of the organisation, an Authorised Contractual Scheme (ACS), by the end of next month.The two funds have jointly invested around £1.5m in start-up costs to provide the foundations for a pool.“The scale of commitment required to get this type of arrangement off the ground is not to be underestimated,” they said, “and we have been happy to share our learning with colleagues from other funds, even when they are seeking to create alternative pools.”They estimated saving some £30m over the next five years on investment management fees, a conservative estimate based on “the experience of just our two funds collaborating thus far”.Investment outcomes, meanwhile, could be enhanced by around £20-£30m by the funds’ increased scale, also on a conservative basis, according to their report.“Given our commitment to wider pooling, we fully anticipate further cost savings to emerge from the detailed analysis that will take place between now and July,” it said.The submission to the government also makes a case for the ALM Partnership’s infrastructure investment capability – noting, for example, that participation in overseas transactions had allowed the team within the partnership “to develop relationships with significant overseas pension funds that potentially will allow the ALM Partnership (and any wider pool that is created) to participate in some larger deals as co-investors”. The Lancashire County Pension Fund (LCPF) and the London Pensions Fund Authority (LPFA) are in talks to partner or work with the Greater Manchester Pension Fund, among other UK local government pension schemes (LGPS), having acknowledged that their partnership had failed to meet the government’s target size for LGPS pooling arrangements.The LCPF and LPFA were the first schemes to announce a partnership, doing so even before the UK government launched a consultation on reforms of the LGPS, which called on the schemes to pool investment assets.English and Welsh LGPS have until today, 19 February, to report to the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) on their commitment to pooling and the steps they have taken in this direction.There are currently eight asset pools emerging from talks among the LGPS, including the partnership between the LPFA and LCPF.last_img read more
