Basement geology and Palaeozoic–Mesozoic mafic dykes from the Cape Meredith Complex, Falkland Islands: a record of repeated intracontinental extension

first_imgMafic dykes (Groups A–D) intruded into Mesoproterozoic basement amphibolites, gneisses, and granitoids of the Cape Meredith Complex on the southern tip of West Falkland, provide an important record of at least three periods of lithospheric extension during Palaeozoic and Jurassic times. Group A dykes are calc-alkaline lamprophyres that were generated by partial melting of an enriched subcontinental lithospheric mantle in Cambro-Ordovician times. Group B dykes are Ordovician dolerites derived from an asthenospheric mantle source, perhaps during the same extensional episode as Group A dykes. Group C dykes were also derived from an asthenospheric source and are possibly of Silurian age. The youngest, Group D, dykes are part of the widespread Jurassic Gondwana province. This group contains an oceanic island basalt-like sample and an enriched sample similar to both Group A lamprophyres and to the Jurassic Ferrar province in Antarctica. These correlations have interesting implications for the composition and evolution of mantle sources through time; the co-existence of Cambrian lamprophyres and Jurassic Ferrar-type magmas in the Cape Meredith Complex demonstrate for the first time that the enriched lithospheric mantle source postulated for the Ferrar magmas existed as far back as Cambrian times.last_img read more

New Therapy for Depression to be Trialled in Oxford

first_imgThe Universities of Oxford and Bangor have together launched a million pound study into a new therapy designed to help prevent patients relapsing into suicidal depression. Rebecca Crane, of the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice, said that the team was “optimistic” of establishing a new preventative approach to tackling depression. The treatment, based on ‘mindfulness’, encourages individuals to accept emotions and to approach experiences with openness in order to reduce stress. The therapy is to be trialled in both Oxford and North Wales.by Rob Pomfretlast_img read more

Brexit chaos? ‘Storm in a teacup,’ says David Smart

first_imgDavid Smart, director at Greenhalgh’s Craft Bakery, appeared on BBC Breakfast this morning to talk about the impact of Brexit on small businesses.Smart, who appeared on both ITV’s This Morning and BBC Radio 5 Live last month to talk about the poor quality of cheap bread, appeared on our screens again this morning to talk about Brexit.Smart’s appearance on BBC Breakfast was a characteristically frank exchange. The question put to the Lancashire native was what impact he felt Brexit would have on small businesses.He told British Baker: “It will have no impact at all! It will be business as normal as far as I am concerned. It’s all a storm in a teacup. Every morning the sun comes up, and that will continue to be the case.“We pay these politicians to run our country, to be stable, and then end up doing the job ourselves, and being the stable ones. Their uncertainty is contagious; they just need to get a grip.“We all need to get on with living our lives, living today.”He went on to talk about the reasons behind his confidence in UK small businesses: “You can be friends with someone, be civil, see each other socially – but you don’t want them in your house, running your household, going through your things, telling you what to do. That’s the way it is.“My household is made up of 60% Europeans – why would I want to harm the fantastic relationship I have with them? Short answer, I wouldn’t.“Yes, the market has dropped, but it’s on the up already – it might take five or six weeks, and yes it might affect people’s pensions for those few weeks, but mark my words, it will come back. It always does.”last_img read more

Eddie Roberts Talks Debuting His New Band, Matador! Soul Sounds, At Brooklyn Comes Alive

first_imgL4LM: You’re a regular participant in super-jams and one-off bands. What’s the secret to working well with players you don’t regularly collaborate with?ER: Luckily, playing music is just another form of communication. The people who usually get called up for these things…they pretty much all speak the same language. That’s how I see it really. We generally all share the same vocabulary. Even if everyone is from different genres, it comes down to that. A lot of interesting things come out of those shows, and it has been a lot of fun over the last few years to participate in so many.It’s definitely different than England. Back there, you got in a band and that was what you did. You didn’t sit in with other bands and they didn’t sit in with you. In America, there is this whole sit in culture. People would say “Come sit in!” and I was like”…OK?” In England it was sort of considered rude to sit in with someone’s band.L4LM: Really?ER: Yeah. We just didn’t have that kind of thing going on. It took a moment for me to get used to it, but I did and now it’s great.L4LM: At the upcoming Brooklyn Comes Alive, you’re debuting your new project, Matador! Soul Sounds, with Alan Evans, Chris Spies, Kevin Scott, Adryon De León, and Kim Dawson. How’d you fall in with these cats initially?ER: We’re definitely a band. How it came about was a couple of times last year [New Mastersounds] drummer Simon [Allen] wasn’t able to play like a week’s worth of shows, So I thought of Alan [Evans]. He and I had played together a few times like on Jam Cruise, and we just clicked and we knew we wanted to do something. So I brought him in for Simon a couple of times last year.At the end of that we were both having a glass of wine and I said “Should we start a band?” and he said “Let’s do it.” That was the pivotal moment. So we started talking about who we wanted to join us. I had been playing with Chris Spies on keys when I was down in New Orleans, and his buddy who played bass was a gentleman named Kevin Scott. They had been friends for ten years. I mentioned Kevin to Alan and he jumped to his feet and said “Omigod I love that guy!”So even though we hadn’t all played together before, there were strong connections there and it all just sort of fell into place. We wanted to get some singers in there, so I grabbed my two best friends from the scene–Kimberly Dawson from The Pimps Of Joytime and Ms. Adryon de León of Orgone. We had played together in a number of different things and I couldn’t think of two people who could be better than them to be in the band.It all came together pretty organically, through a lot of different friendships. We’re all pretty excited to get going on this. It is very fortuitous that it is all coming together in time for Brooklyn Comes Alive.L4LM: Is Matador! going to be a big time commitment for you guys?ER: Absolutely! 2018 is gonna be the year of the Matador!L4LM: The advance hype has Matador! sounding soulful. How would you describe the music this new band is making?ER: We’ve already made the album, but we are gonna be going back into the studio to add a bit before the Brooklyn Comes Alive show. It’s gonna sound old-school…kind of drenched in funk really. A little more bullish, I guess. It’s a powerful sound and very dynamic with the girls singing. They function almost as a horn section at times, but they will be featured on various tracks. It’s not like the old “Singer out front with a backing band,” but more everybody is part of the music. That is the vision for it. We’re very excited for this 7-inch single we have coming out, and the launch itself.L4LM: What do you think of the Brooklyn Comes Alive concept of bringing together artists instead of bands, and creating new combinations from a star studded talent pool like they do?ER: I’ve seen the line-ups from the past ones and they have looked really exciting. Unfortunately, both previous years I was out on the road and couldn’t make it. I was asked each time and I was very excited when they reached out to me for this year’s show. I looked and there was a nice open space on my calendar and I said “Sweet! Let’s do it!” Brooklyn is an amazing place and all the venues involved are just wonderful. It’s going to be an exciting weekend and this fest is obviously here to stay. I actually think it’s going to grow and grow and become a staple of our scene.L4LM: Did you ever fantasize about your dream line ups when you were a kid?ER: Most of the people I get to play with now I’d never even heard of as a kid. The funny thing is I never even thought I would be playing in America, let alone living in America. I knew I wanted to be a musician and I knew that was what I was going to do, but I had no idea that it was gonna take me so far.L4LM: You’re always quite dapper onstage but I’ve always wondered…aren’t you hot under those suits and ties?ER: No, I’m okay. I’m blessed with the ability to regulate my body temperature pretty effectively. I actually like being a little hot when I play. I don’t like being cold. Your fingers dry up. I actually don’t feel like I’ve done a days work unless I am sweating.It came from hanging out in New Orleans and going to Jazz Fest and seeing all those old guys out there playing in their jackets and ties. I sorta thought, “If it’s this hot out here but these guys are still doing it, then why shouldn’t I?” That’s how I started doing it and now it’s become sort of a trademark. So now I’m screwed and I have to wear a jacket!L4LM: The world is on a nasty edge lately. You already do so much to help heal this divide with your non-profit, The Payback, and your other related charitable donations. Do you feel like this is your duty as a public figure to lead by example?ER: Absolutely, yes. I have been so blessed between my musical gifts and my many opportunities. I know that if I hadn’t had certain help like a stable family and great friends and, of course, a music scene like this. I feel like it is my duty to help those less fortunate. It’s a good thing for all of us to do, really.The New Mastersounds’ Eddie Roberts Talks Standing Rock & Social Responsibility Of A MusicianL4LM: Well, thanks for taking time away from rehearsals to chat with us. Please pass along best wishes for a speedy recory to Pete from the Live For Live Music Crew and look forward to seeing all this new music you’re gonna make!ER: Thank you. We’re thankful that Live For Live Music is helping us get our music out to the world.[Cover photo via Alan Westman]Don’t miss the debut performance of Eddie Roberts‘ new band with Alan Evans (Soulive), Chris Spies, Kevin Scott, Adryon De León (Orgone) Kim Dawson (Pimps of Joytime) at the upcoming Brooklyn Comes Alive!Inspired by the vibrant musical communities of Brooklyn and New Orleans, Brooklyn Comes Alive is set to take place across three venues in Williamsburg, Brooklyn (Brooklyn Bowl, Schimanski, Music Hall of Williamsburg) on September 23rd and 24th. The unique homegrown event puts the focus on the musicians, curating dream team collaborations, tributes, and artist passion projects for two full days of incredible music both new and old.The 2017 lineup is set to include hand-selected band lineups featuring all-star musicians like John Scofield, George Porter Jr. (The Meters), Vinnie Amico and Al Schnier (moe.), Bernard Purdie, Kofi Burbridge (Tedeschi Trucks Band), Joel Cummins, Ryan Stasik, and Kris Myers (Umphrey’s McGee), Aron Magner and Marc Brownstein (The Disco Biscuits), Mike Greenfield and Jesse Miller (Lotus), Jason Hann (String Cheese Incident), Alan Evans (Soulive), Cyril Neville (Neville Brothers), Henry Butler, Jon Cleary, Reed Mathis (Electric Beethoven), Michael League, Nate Werth, Chris Bullock, Robert “Sput” Searight, and Bob Lanzetti (Snarky Puppy), Jennifer Hartswick and Natalie Cressman (Trey Anastasio Band), and scores of others! British guitarist Eddie Roberts has been making an impression on the American funk-jam scene for nearly two decades with The New Mastersounds and a host of other side projects and limited-edition collaborations. However, a musical partnership with Soulive’s Alan Evans has resulted in a fully realized, unified band—Matador! Soul Sounds–which has already recorded an album and is set to make their official live debut at the upcoming Brooklyn Comes Alive. We caught up with Eddie to chat about the Mastersounds, the new band, the differing “sit-in cultures” of England and the U.S., and more:Live For Live Music: First off, we have to ask: After the successful emergency fundraising campaign and the subsequent surgery, how is your New Mastersounds bandmate Pete Shands doing?Eddie Roberts: He’s doing great and the surgery went really well. The surgeon was really happy with how it came out and Pete is just laying low now and recovering. Thanks to the invasive nature of the surgery itself, it is gonna be a bit before he is back up to snuff. I am probably gonna go see him today actually. They say a couple of weeks of recovery before he is totally pain free from the surgery…We actually have a show in Italy for the 30th of September so he has to be better for that.L4LM: Please pass along the best wishes from all of us here at Live For Live Music. We’re all big fans and we were worried for him.ER: We really appreciate you guys covering the fundraising campaign for Pete as well. It was a bit of an emergency. He wasn’t doing well at the end of that last tour we did and things got a lot worse really fast. He was in a pretty bad way.L4LM: The New Mastersounds are rapidly approaching the 20th anniversary of forming, a pretty rare accomplishment. Any special plans to honor that achievement?ER: Hey! HA! Wait a minute! We still have a few years to go. Don’t make us too old! At the moment it’s just like “Oh wow, it’s going to be twenty years soon. But we haven’t really talked much about it yet. It IS approaching…approaching pretty quickly, actually. But we started in ’99 so we still have a little while to go.”Watch The New Mastersounds’ memorable 2/25/13 set at the Brooklyn Bowl with a parade of incredible guest stars below via LazyLightning55a: L4LM: I’m sure anniversaries like this can make you feel a little old, but you have to be proud of lasting that long as a band. So few groups do.ER: Yeah, it is pretty rare. It can be a tough game, for sure. Keeping the band together, with the same people…there’s a lot of psychology involved. It’s like a family. We’re pretty pleased. We’ve made a lot of music we’re proud of and traveled the world with it. That is an achievement for sure.L4LM: You came by your love of funk music from a kinda long distance. Can you remember the first time you heard something really funky?ER: I came out of a bit of a jazz background, but saying that I guess I have to say Jimi Hendrix. He was pretty funky, I think. I was really into Hendrix when I was 14 or 15. I would consider that the first funk I ever heard, especially some of the stuff he did on the Wah-Wah pedal.I do remember somebody gave me a cassette tape of The Meters. I don’t even know how old I was, but they gave me the cassette and said they wanted to start a band that like that. That was definitely a moment when that music really connected with me. But, like I said, I was a jazz guy. So folks like Lou Donaldson, Grant Green, Idris Muhammad were artists I dug. That is funk, but another incarnation of it.L4LM: As a funk guy, it must have been something else to be part of the Foundation Of Funk project. Was it nerve0-racking playing with George Porter Jr. and Zigaboo Modeliste, the rhythm section of The Meters, playing the iconic funk music that they created?ER: I’d been lucky enough to play with George and Zig independently before the Foundation Of Funk gigs, so I already had a history with both of them. We actually had a rehearsal and I was just laughing the whole time. It was the first time I had seen the two of them together and just the way that they interact, the stories that they told…it was just hilarious. I wish that I had a video camera while it was going on. Quite an afternoon, really.Check out Fundation Of Funk, featuring Zigaboo Modeliste, George Porter Jr, John Medeski and Eddie Roberts from Bear Creek Bayou on 9/30/16 below:center_img ***Tickets Are On Sale Now!***Brooklyn Comes Alive is now offering single day tickets, as well as a ticket payment plan for as low as $30/month. When checking out, just select “Monthly payments with Affirm” as your payment method. To find out more about ticketing, VIP options, and lodging, head to the festival website.last_img read more

The Fastest Bird In The World Soars Back From Near Extinction

first_imgPreviously placed on the endangered list, peregrine falcons, capable of reaching speeds up to 200 miles per hour, are becoming quite the success story in bird conservation.The smokestack that is home to the falcon pairing.Photo by Linda DavidsonJust 50 years back, peregrines were nearly wiped out entirely east of the Mississippi River from widespread pesticide usage. The rare species went from 25 pairs in Virginia to none and from 350 pairs to nearly gone in eastern North America according to Bryan Watts, director of the Center for Conservation Biology at William & Mary and VCU.According to a report by The Washington Post, Watts has had his hands full with the monitoring and research of a specific pair of peregrines that have made a smokestack their home in Prince William County, VA. The pair has resided in the same smokestack for nine years inside of a nest box placed by researchers. Watts and his counterparts have had a nearly 12 year partnership with Dominion Energy that allows him to conduct research and travel up the smokestack to retrieve the babies in order to tag them.In his recent ascend to retrieve the two baby females and one baby male, he was able to grab both females while the male was startled and abandoned the nest to test out his wings. The females were successfully banded as there was a two day search for the male. Luckily, a power plant worker found the young male and was able to turn it over to the researcher who then took him to a wildlife center in Shenandoah National Park. He was taken there as an at-risk falcon to be put in a hack box where he will be fed and cared for until he is ready to take off and fly away on his own.The legs of each of the female peregrine falcon newborns was banded with a metal tag that is placed on their legs as they are examined and weighed. As explained by Watts: Banding the young birds helps to monitor their population, keep track of the number or pairs by area, and the amount of young the pairs reproduce.Bryan Watts and wife, Marian weigh one of the young peregrines on site in Virginia.Photo by Linda DavidsonFrom endeavors to keep track of such things, researchers know that from the pair in Virginia, the female came form the Betsy Ross Bridge in NJ and the male was born in Maryland at a power plant. As both birds traveled far before finding the other, they yielded a perfect example of how the breed received its name.Peregrine means traveling or wandering as the falcons’ history shows evidence of lengthy travels. From the tracking of the chicks of the Virginia pairing, researchers have found the grown up chicks in cities in the northeast like Boston and NYC while others have been found out west and even as far as Columbia and Panama when migrating for the winter. As mature falcons, the peregrines have a nearly four foot wingspan and they catch their prey in mid-air. Their numbers have drastically changed and there are now roughly 1,650 breeding pairs in the U.S. and Canada according to Defenders of Wildlife.In an effort to put the pieces together of how this resurgence has come to be, Watts explained that a big reason for their growing numbers is the birds’ ability to adapt to man-made structures. This helps explain why the pairing in Virginia is content on a smokestack rather than a tree somewhere.As you go about your adventures in the Blue Ridge Mountains, keep an eye out for the peregrines because if you blink, you just might miss them.last_img read more

Coffee on the Road: Putting 3 Methods to the Test

first_imgI never drank coffee in the morning. I would have a few sips, get super shaky and feel my heart beating in my ankles, and reach for green tea instead. Then I met Ben. When we met, Ben drank coffee every morning, and then some in the afternoon, and then talked about drinking it in the evening. It started with my stealing a few sips from his mug when he said it was an exceptionally good brew. Then slowly, after drinking enough sips, I was ordering mugs for myself. Today, I proudly announce, I am a full blown coffee snob. Living in a van and being a coffee snob CAN BE synonymous. There are plenty of ways to brew in the forest, but we have a few favorites. Below we put three methods to the test to see what is the ultimate off the grid coffee brewing champion.Method 1: French PressThe French press was invented by Paolini Ugo and patented by Italian designer Attilio Calimani and Giulio Moneta in 1929. It has clearly stood the test of time, how does it stack up for brewing in the woods?Pros:Easy to use and straightforward. It’s hard to really mess up this method, although I do suggest using a timer to make sure you don’t over steep your grounds.Makes a LOT of coffee! Necessary for groups or for Ben to get enough coffee.Durable. Our stainless steel French Press has been on the road for two years, and I’ve only had to wood glue the handle once.Cons:Hard to clean. It leaves a lot of ground to deal with and they’re all clumped at the bottom.Takes up space, it’s the biggest of the three options.Must get coffee ground on “course” which doesn’t allow the flavor of your final product to be as complex. Trust this coffee snob.Final Score: 7/10Its convenience and ease of use keep the score high, but the lack of flavor and clean up time dock it a few points. Method 2: AeroPressThe AeroPress, the newest of the three options, was invented in 2005 by Aerobie president Alan Adler It uses a two plunger system, one with a filter at the bottom. Suction is used to create air pressure to push the water through the coffee grounds. Does the new science work?Pros:It’s small! This brew method takes up far less space than a french press.It’s a STRONG brew. It claims to make espresso strength coffee, but we just make two cups and drink it straight. That’s some serious flavor right there!It’s fast. No waiting around, no timing. Pour your water and drink your coffee. BONUS: It’s easy to clean up afterward.Cons:It’s all made of plastic, so if you’re weird about hot water and plastic (even though it says it’s safe), you’re going to have to come to terms before you brew.It’s a little complicated. There’s step by step directions, but you have to read them a few times to make sure all the parts are in the right places.You can only make one cup of coffee at a time.Final Score: 8/10The flavor is awesome, and the speed of waking up to coffee in hand in unbeatable. The plastic and amount of components bring the score down.Method 3: Pour OverPour Over coffee can range from a fine art to caveman coffee. This is the simplest method with the least moving parts, but it can turn into a masterpiece if you know what you’re doing.Pros:It’s simple, and there’s only one item you need to make it. Totally self-contained and small.Our Sea to Summit X-Brew is made of silicon and collapses into itself, making it a great option for backpacking.If you do it right, the coffee ends up flavorful and complex. A nice in-between of French press and Aeropress flavors.Cons:There is a method of pouring and waiting an exact amount of time and then pouring again that brews a delicious cup. It can get a little complicated and annoying.You’re only making a cup at a time, and then you have to go through the whole process again.Coffee can come out watery if you don’t do the method correctly.Final Score: 7/10The simplicity of the device is wonderful, but the ease of use can get complicated if you’re trying to follow proper “pour over” technique.Brewing Tips:DO use a hand grinder! Grinding your beans right before you use them will ensure freshness and flavor.DON’T use boiling water! It is far too hot and will burn your beans. Pour from high above so the water has some time to cool down before hitting your brew method.DON’T keep your coffee in the freezer. Moisture is the enemy of coffee beans and will dimish the flavor in a moist setting.DO warm your cup before pouring in the coffee. This may sound dumb– but it makes a difference! Just use the leftover boiling water.DO use high-quality water AND coffee beans. Spend a few extra dollars on the coffee and it will make an incredible difference! You’re saving a ton of money by not buying coffee out, so treat yo’self!We are not coffee experts by any means, but two years on the road has taught us a thing or two about making coffee off the grid. Comment with any suggestions or your favorite was to make your morning brew!There is one way for this tour to be a reality, our sponsors!

Latin American and Caribbean Drug Czars in Lima

first_img The trafficking of drugs by air and sea will be one of the central topics addressed by the top antinarcotics officials of Latin America and the Caribbean (HONLEA) at their meeting in Lima from 4 to 7 October, the organizers announced. The twentieth HONLEA meeting will also have as a goal that “the participants share their experiences and management strategies along the borders of their countries’ airspace,” Peru’s National Commission for Development and Life without Drugs (Devida) announced Sunday. Rómulo Pizarro, the head of Devida, indicated to the press that during the four days of the international event, the chief trends in illicit drug trafficking, the forms of regional cooperation, and the possibilities for technological support in confronting this problem will be analyzed, among other topics. He indicated that the reports and recommendations issued at the end of the summit of top antinarcotics officials will be submitted to the United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs. HONLEA is the United Nations forum that brings together the continent’s top antinarcotics officials, who periodically analyze the latest trends in the worldwide drug problem. Pizarro said that clandestine flights are one of the methods used in Peru to transport drugs to other countries. “In recent years, the major development has been the use of clandestine airstrips located in the regions of Loreto and Ucayali in the northeast and in Sandia Carabaya in the south.” By Dialogo September 28, 2010last_img read more
