Jackie Greene Releases “Fragile And Wanting” Video [Watch]

first_imgIn 2018, singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Jackie Greene released a 6-song EP entitled The Modern Lives Vol 2., the second EP of the series. Jackie has long collaborated with many of the greats in the jam band scene, including Phil Lesh & Friends and The Black Crowes, but over the past year he’s focused his efforts on his own music and band.Recently, Jackie Greene released a new video for “Fragile And Wanting”, a ballad off of The Modern Lives Vol 2. EP. Directed by Anthony Simpkins of GemsOnVHS, the video features clips of a family at a carnival, while bouncing back and forth between a band made up of multiple versions of Greene singing and playing all of the instruments, in similar fashion to how he recorded the record.Jackie Greene shared his thoughts on the song with Relix, explaining,Like most romantics, I’ve always been a sucker for a sappy ballad. Especially the kind you listen to privately, on headphones. This is that type of song. Meant to be enjoyed alone. On headphones. But, if you end up blasting it in your car while you cruise around on the weekend, that’s cool too. You might get some funny looks, though.Watch Jackie Greene’s new captivating video for “Fragile And Wanting” below:Jackie Greene – “Fragile And Wanting”[Video: Jackie Greene]For a full list of his upcoming tour dates and ticketing information, head to Jackie Greene’s website.[H/T Relix]last_img read more

A vanishing neighborhood

first_imgWillets Point in Queens, N.Y., is a 75-acre patch of hustling junk dealers, mechanics, tire dealers, and auto glass installers. Savvy drivers troll the potholed streets of this offbeat commercial hive looking for the best fix-it deals in New York. About 2,000 people work in 250 businesses.But the city has plans for a new $3 billion retail and office complex there. Willets Point will soon disappear in a puff of rust, taking with it one of the last vestiges of a scrappy free-market New York.Luckily, its sights and sounds are captured in “Foreign Parts,” an 80-minute documentary film co-directed by two fellows at Harvard’s Film Study Center. (The fellows program there is the only graduate-level source of arts funding at the University.)Released last fall, “Foreign Parts” has already captured six international film prizes, including the prize for best first feature at the prestigious Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland. (Its first screening in Cambridge, featuring remarks by both directors, is at 7 p.m. April 22 at the Harvard Film Archive.)“It was totally surreal for us,” said co-director Véréna Paravel of the Locarno prize, the first in a rapid string of top film festival honors in Italy, Spain, the United States, and elsewhere.Paravel, a French-born ethnographer, is a postdoctoral associate in Harvard’s Department of Anthropology and in the Sensory Ethnography Lab. Her co-director, J.P. Sniadecki, is a Harvard Ph.D. candidate in anthropology.Paravel was a novice at making films. Sniadecki had already won film awards, including for “Chaiqian” (“Demotion”), a 2008 documentary on migrant labor in urban China. Now he is a Blakemore Foundation fellow and curator of an independent film series in China called Emergent Visions.“It’s very interesting how different we are,” said Paravel, who is from the south of France, but grew up in Algeria, Togo, Ivory Coast, Russia, and elsewhere. Sniadecki was raised in Michigan. “But we share this common ground — a small place where we really get each other,” she said. “We speak the same aesthetic language.”“Foreign Parts” is visually lush and elegiac, an unobtrusive look at the sights, sounds, and people of a vanishing world. The film’s unwitting stars are as obscure and colorful as Willets Point itself. They have names like V.K., Abdul, Chino, Angel, Max, and Moe.Joe, who is 76 and the last legal resident of Willets Point, rages at the eminent domain machinery that started to grind in 2008. Eighty percent of the neighborhood is now in city control.Luis and Sara, a married couple, live in a van. Julia, a bearded homeless woman who favors baseball caps, has been a fixture there for 17 years and calls herself “queen of the junkyard.” Joe, who is 76 and the last legal resident of Willets Point, rages Lear-like at the eminent domain machinery that started to grind in 2008. (Eighty percent of the neighborhood is now in city control.) He roams the pocked and puddled streets like a proud mayor.Paravel found this little vestige of commerce while living in New York. Tired of writing academic papers and attending conferences, she decided to make a film about city life beneath 12 miles of elevated subway track that starts in Flushing. (The eventual 20-minute film, “7 Queens,” was done for a seminar at Harvard’s Sensory Ethnography Lab.)But along the way, Paravel discovered the oddity and the energy of nearby Willets Point. She started shooting video in the summer of 2008. Sniadecki joined her that fall, and after two years they had 150 hours of raw footage. “We were the crew,” said Paravel.The result — edited with panicky speed in Cambridge, China, India, and Paris — was finished just in time for Locarno, thanks to patient help and a sound mix by Sensory Ethnography Lab manager Ernst Karel.The finished film has no narrative, no contextual interviews, and no political viewpoint, just the views of two observant ethnographers who have a gift for images. A series of 81 vignettes capture the queer vibrancy of Willets Point.In the first scene, a man with bolt cutters snips hoses in a jacked-up Astro van while fluids gush from the dangling engine. The slaughterhouse imagery remains a cinematic thread. A forklift knifes its blades through a car’s windows and lifts it like a sack. A man saws at a steering column and drags the remnant down the street.But “Foreign Parts” also lovingly records the accidental beauty of junkyard bricolage. There are walls of hanging side view mirrors, racks of shiny wheels, tunnels of stacked bumpers, and warehouses lined with labeled taillights and wiper motors.The people seem less ordered. Two Hasidic Jews in broad black hats sit at a desk in a mechanic’s shop, drinking vodka with two other men. One of them says, “The Messiah is coming now,” and raises his glass.A man with an earring rolls a blunt in a car. Joe pauses during an angry walk to deliver an ornithological aside on the swallows that nest in local trees every May. Sara shows the knife and tire iron she sleeps with while Luis is in jail. She concludes, “So this is how I live.”One rainy day, Julia dodges street puddles, veering off to hit up old friends for money. (“What am I,” asks one, “an ATM?”) Then she turns to the camera, raising her hands. “This is my people, my friends,” she says.Last October, Julia had a bottle of whiskey in each pocket when she joined Joe and others at the Lincoln Center for the official U.S. premiere of “Foreign Parts” at the New York Film Festival. Afterward, she told Paravel, “I slept so well.”last_img read more

A vote for more natural gas

first_imgThe head of one of the world’s largest independent oil and gas exploration and production companies said he is an enthusiastic convert to the promise of natural gas to lower fuel costs, ease U.S. dependence on foreign oil, and reduce the environmental impact of burning fossil fuel.James Hackett, chairman and chief executive officer of Anadarko Petroleum Corp., said Wednesday that developments regarding shale gas over the past five years amount to a revolution in the nation’s energy picture. Supply estimates have increased dramatically in recent years, and estimates show that there’s enough natural gas to meet moderate demand for a century.The rapid increase in supply is already driving prices down, and Hackett said projections show natural gas can provide fuel at the equivalent of $42 per barrel of oil at a time when oil is in the neighborhood of $100 per barrel. Coal remains cheaper, he said, but all of the health and environmental costs of burning coal are not reflected in its price. Burning natural gas produces far fewer greenhouse gases than does coal, he said.Hackett delivered his speech, “North America’s New Age of Energy Abundance: Prudent Oil and Natural Gas Development,” at the Science Center Wednesday evening in a Future of Energy talk, sponsored by the Harvard University Center for the Environment.The increased supply and lower prices of natural gas have the potential for economic benefits beyond the energy sector, Hackett said. Though thought of primarily as a fuel, natural gas has long been a component in making fertilizers. A reduction in cost, Hackett said, could cut expenses for farmers, potentially lowering food prices.Already, Hackett said, the increased production of shale gas is creating jobs, in both the petroleum and fertilizer industries. Factories that had been shuttered five years ago are re-opening.With a potentially dramatic increase in production of natural gas and other unconventional sources of oil such as that derived from oil sands, Hackett said that energy independence — a stated goal of the U.S. for decades — is potentially achievable.“There is a huge potential to make us almost independent,” Hackett said.Hackett briefly addressed alternative energy sources such as wind and solar, saying they still have a problem with delivering energy when it’s needed — solar, for example, doesn’t produce when the sun goes down, which is when people turn their lights on — and haven’t come up with a workable energy storage solution to solve the problem.Though there are already 100,000 vehicles powered by natural gas in the United States, there is room for expansion, Hackett said, though a lack of natural gas refueling stations remains a major hurdle. He suggested usage could expand by converting medium- and heavy-duty trucks and buses to natural gas, which could save 1.2 million barrels of oil a day by 2035.Though the petroleum industry is heavily regulated, Hackett acknowledged that it’s not always properly regulated. He also acknowledged problems with the controversial process of extracting natural gas from shale rock deposits far underground, called hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking.”In fracking, liquids are injected under pressure into shale rock deposits, cracking the rock and releasing gas, which is extracted at the surface. Problems have cropped up in several ways, Hackett said, including improper handling of water as it comes back out of the ground, heavy truck traffic in rural parts of the country that aren’t used to that, and the release of methane into the atmosphere.Hackett said that a recent report by the National Petroleum Council, requested by Energy Secretary Steven Chu, recommended establishing regional centers of excellence to establish best practices, which can be shared with regulators in order to minimize problems. That same report also recommended a carbon tax, if the government believes it necessary.Hackett said climate change is an important issue to consider in determining the nation’s future energy mix, and acknowledged that though natural gas releases less carbon dioxide than coal and oil, it does release some carbon dioxide when burned and so isn’t the ultimate solution. Still, he said, climate change concerns shouldn’t overshadow other important priorities, such as clean water, proper land use, and limited community impact.“This is a real answer for the country,” Hackett said.last_img read more

Gov. Wolf, National Advocates Push for a Fairer Probation System

first_img November 18, 2019 Criminal Justice Reform,  Press Release,  Prison Reform Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf was joined by Deputy Secretary of Corrections Christian Stephens and national criminal justice reform advocates today in the Capitol Rotunda to push for commonsense probation reforms that address probation sentences and probation lengths.“Despite recent progress, Pennsylvania’s criminal justice system is still failing in some areas,” Gov. Wolf said. “Probation should assist Pennsylvanians with creating stability in their lives and instead, our excessively long sentences and cumbersome rules are causing Pennsylvanians to lose their jobs, employers are losing much-needed workers, families are losing support systems, and taxpayer money is being wasted on a system that is not improving lives or recidivism rates.”According to the Department of Corrections, one in 35 adults in Pennsylvania is under some form of post-incarceration supervision and that number has increased while the state’s crime rate has decreased. Pennsylvania is one of just eight states where probation can last up to the maximum sentence of an offense.Gov. Wolf encouraged the end of the practice of forcing Pennsylvanians to spend decades jumping through hoops and putting people into jail for minor probation violations like missing an appointment; to institute hard caps on the length of time a person can be on probation; and to find fitting, productive responses, like connecting people to treatment when they fail drug tests.“We have the opportunity to positively change the lives of millions of Pennsylvanians through criminal justice reform,” Gov. Wolf said. “And we already have – through bipartisan initiatives like the Clean Slate Law. I’m having some great discussions with members of the legislature on the best next steps, and I’m optimistic that by working together, we can create a fairer criminal justice system that gets Pennsylvanians back on track to productive, successful lives.”Last year, the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections announced its participation in a Safe Streets & Second Chances reentry initiative aimed at reducing recidivism, which aligns with the governor’s criminal justice reform ideals. The DOC has been working with researcher Dr. Carrie Pettus-Davis from Florida State University to provide access to inmates from four state correctional institutions in Western Pennsylvania who were interested in participating in the pilot program.The 5-Key Model used in the Safe Streets & Second Chances model is a departure from some reentry models that are predominantly deficits-focused. This model focuses on the strengths and psychological well-being of formerly incarcerated individuals to ensure they will remain crime-free and contribute positively to society. Research indicates that a focus on strengths and well-being best maximizes public health and public safety.In addition to Dr. Pettus-Davis, Gov. Wolf was joined by Safe Streets & Second Chances Advisory Council Chair Mark Holden, Right on Crime’s John Koufos, Sen. Anthony Williams, Rep. Jordan Harris, and other legislators and criminal justice reform advocates.“We need an effective criminal justice system which protects people, preserves public safety, respects human dignity, and removes barriers to opportunity for people reentering society to have real second chances,” Mark Holden said. “The research of Safe Streets & Second Chances has found that we get better outcomes when we work together for bipartisan solutions to critical problems like housing, employment and probation reform in Pennsylvania. We look forward to working with Governor Wolf, the legislature and all constituencies to ensure that commonsense smart-on-crime and soft-on-taxpayer policy solutions are achieved for the Keystone state.”“Probation reform and smart criminal justice reform consistently lead to safer communities, and we are excited to see bipartisan innovation in Pennsylvania,” said John Koufos. “Our partners look forward to working with the Legislature as they release a probation bill before this session expires that will make Pennsylvania safer and more prosperous. Technical probation violations have been estimated to cost Pennsylvania taxpayers $100 million per year but are not making Pennsylvanians any safer. Pennsylvania is charting a new course by fixing this system, and we thank the legislature and the governor for working together on this critical issue.”“There are positive, commonsense changes that we can make to the probation system to balance the needs of those who have served time and are working to be part of our society again with the needs of our community and victims to be kept safe,” Rep. Sheryl Delozier, legislation co-sponsor, said.“Criminal justice reform is the civil rights issue of our time, and it’s an honor to stand with Governor Wolf whose support is invaluable,” legislation co-sponsor Rep. Jordan Harris said. “Our probation system is broken and rather than helping people get back to leading a productive life, it’s entrapping them like quicksand. I’m confident we can bring about real change for Pennsylvania and I look forward to continuing to work with Representative Sheryl Delozier as well as democrats and republicans across the aisle who recognize that probation reform is necessary to move Pennsylvania forward.”“At the end of the day, our role as elected officials is to make life better for the people of the commonwealth and that means providing more opportunity, less government, and safer neighborhoods,” said Sen. Camera Bartolotta, legislation co-sponsor. “Criminal justice reform helps achieve all three of these goals. That is why I am proud to be a prime sponsor of Senate Bill 14, legislation that will help reform our overly burdensome probation system from one that too often traps people in a cycle of incarceration, to one that offers opportunity and a path to a better life.”“We’ve worked for over a year with partners representing a wide array of ideologies in support of achieving long-overdue reform to our community supervision system,” legislation co-sponsor Sen. Anthony Williams said. “I look forward to continuing that work and getting a bill that ensures equitable and fair probation supervision to Governor Wolf’s desk early next year.” SHARE Email Facebook Twittercenter_img Gov.

Pentagon chief calls VFA termination ‘unfortunate’

first_imgU.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper calledthis decision “unfortunate,” saying it would be a move in the wrong directionat a time when Washington and its allies were trying to press China to abide by“international rules of order” in Asia. The decision, sparked by the revocationof a U.S. visa held by a former police chief who led Duterte’s bloody war ondrugs, could complicate U.S. military interests in the Asia-Pacific region asChina’s ambitions rise. Given the importance of the alliancewith the Philippines in broader U.S. strategy, Washington hopes the decisionwill be reversed or delayed before it takes legal effect in 180 days.

EPL: Watford hold Tottenham Hotspur

first_imgRelatedPosts Watford appoint new head coach EPL: Watford battle Gunners for survival Premier League: Our survival in our own hands — Coach Troy Deeney missed a second-half penalty as Watford drew 0-0 with Tottenham Hotspur in Saturday afternoon’s Premier League clash at Vicarage Road. The Hornets captain had the chance to send his team ahead in the 70th minute of the contest but saw his effort saved by Paulo Gazzaniga as the points were shared in the early kickoff. The result has seen Watford – now unbeaten in their last five league matches – move above West Ham United into 16th position in the Premier League table, while Spurs climb into seventh, eight points off fourth-placed Chelsea. Tottenham had a shout for a penalty inside the first minute following a scramble inside the Watford box, but neither the referee nor VAR were interested. On the break, the hosts had a half-chance through Gerard Deulofeu, although the attacker’s effort was always moving wide of the post. An open start also saw Son Heung-min find space inside the Watford box in the third minute, but the South Korea international was closed out before he could release a shot. Erik Lamela had the away side’s first attempt of the match in the seventh minute, although the Argentine’s effort from outside the box never threatened to trouble Ben Foster between the sticks. Spurs, backed by a vocal away support, were the side making the early running at Vicarage Road with Giovani Lo Celso in particular impressing in a slightly withdrawn position. Lucas Moura was again through the middle for Jose Mourinho’s side with Son, Dele Alli and Lamela in close support, but Watford were defending well as they continued to resist the early pressure. The Hornets had a chance of their own in the 17th minute when Ismaila Sarr found space inside the Spurs box, but the attacker curled his effort over the crossbar under pressure. Nigel Pearson’s side had another opportunity to cause the visitors a problem three minutes later when Japhet Tanganga felled Sarr, although Nathaniel Chalobah’s free kick from a dangerous position was disappointing. There was a stoppage in play around the 30-minute mark with referee Michael Olivier needing a replacement receiver from the fourth official, which just interrupted a flow of Tottenham pressure. Foster had to keep out a curling effort from Lamela as the away team carved out a half-chance, before Deeney and Deulofeu threatened for Watford moments later down the other end of the field. Gazzaniga then had to palm clear a dangerous cross from Chalobah as Pearson’s side forced the issue with the first half approaching its final 10 minutes. Lucas had a brilliant chance to send Tottenham ahead in the 38th minute when he broke into a one-on-one with Foster, but the experienced goalkeeper was on hand to make a brilliant save. Son then volleyed over the crossbar from distance before Deeney headed into the arms of Gazzaniga down the other end as the two teams headed down the tunnel at 0-0 following an open first 45 minutes of action. Neither manager made a change at the interval, meaning that Tottenham’s new signing Gedson Fernandes remained on the bench with Harry Winks and Lo Celso again in the middle of the park. Watford had a huge chance to take the lead early in the second period when Abdoulaye Doucoure broke into Tottenham box after smart work from Sarr, but the midfielder could not turn home from close range. Sarr had a chance of his own moments later after Deeney won a header inside the penalty area, but the 21-year-old missed the post as Spurs survived another dangerous moment. Mourinho’s team had a clear opportunity in the 53rd minute when Son picked out the head of Alli from a cross, only for the England international to send the ball over the crossbar. Chances were arriving at both ends and Deeney had one deflected wide of the post in the 55th minute with both defences coming under pressure at the start of the second period. There was a full-blown scuffle just before the hour as Doucoure clashed with Jan Vertonghen; VAR had a look at a possible red card for the Watford midfielder, but the incident ended with yellow cards being produced for both players. Son broke clear moments later as Spurs had the chance to take the lead, but the South Korean fired over the crossbar with the score level entering the final 30 minutes. VAR had a look at a possible penalty in the 64th minute following a deflected strike from Lamela which led to more anger inside the stadium, but play was allowed to continue. Referee Oliver pointed to the spot in the 69th minute, though, with the ball striking the arm of Vertonghen inside the box. VAR agreed with the match official’s decision, but Deeney saw his penalty saved by Gazzaniga. The pressure on Spurs was relentless, though, and Mourinho responded by introducing Inter Milan-linked attacker Christian Eriksen in place of Alli, who had struggled to make his mark at Vicarage Road. Sarr struck wide of the away side’s goal in the 78th minute before Pearson made his first change of the match, introducing Roberto Pereyra for Chalobah. Meanwhile, Fernandes was introduced for his Tottenham debut in place of Lo Celso. Lamela fired wide of the Watford post five minutes from time as both sides looked for a winner. Tottenham thought that they had scored in stoppage time when a scramble inside the home team’s box led to the ball moving towards goal off the foot of Lamela, but debutant Ignacio Pussetto managed to clear before it crossed the line. Next up for Watford is a trip to Aston Villa on Tuesday night, while Tottenham face a home game against basement side Norwich City one day later.Tags: Paulo GazzanigaTottenham FCTroy DeeneyWatfordlast_img read more
