Bright Eyes: Rayland Baxter Opens Up On New Album, Wide Awake

first_imgRayland Baxter sounds enlightened—lyrically and sonically—on his new album, Wide Awake. On previous efforts, the Nashville-based singer-songwriter, who’s toured with the Lumineers and the Head and the Heart, delivered wise observations with loose Americana grace, but this time he tightened his focus and crafted taut, vintage pop songs with shimmering Beatles-esque hooks. Baxter started the record by moving into an old tire factory turned studio in rural Kentucky, where he wrote intensely in isolation. There he came up with topical songs, sharing his take on gun control (“79 Shiny Revolvers”) and debt (“Casanova”) with sly humor and heartfelt optimism.When it was time to record, Baxter teamed up with producer Butch Walker and assembled a dynamic backing band that included Cage the Elephant’s Nick Bockrath and Dr. Dog drummer Eric Slick to fulfill his vision. He muses on the shaky state of the world with the resilience of a positive groove. Tell me about your writing retreat at the old factory in Kentucky.Around Halloween of 2016, I moved into my buddy’s recording studio that he, at that point, was just building piece by piece. I lived in there for three months; I had a bed, a Wurlitzer, and an old 1950s Gibson guitar that my dad gave me. I started writing, all day every day.I remember when I first started listening to Bob Dylan, and learning about how he would hole up in the Chelsea Hotel. That focused process worked for a lot of my favorite writers, and it’s something I’ve always wanted to do. I like my time alone. This record is more political than your past work. How did that thread in your writing start?The news channel was always on in the kitchen, so at first I was checking in on the Cubs winning the World Series. Then (after the Presidential election) this whole shift of power went down, and I noticed this rage but also people trying to come together with acceptance and love. I started analyzing my own thoughts and writing about them. That gets to the album title, Wide Awake. I wanted to write songs about some topical issues, but also just become a better songwriter. At the same time the musical arrangements are upbeat and pop-driven. That came when I was writing. I decided I wanted to make simple pop-form songs that people could carry around and not lose in a confusing chord progression. That was my focus, and then the great group of musicians I worked with made it happen. Butch Walker, who produced and played bass, is a singer-songwriter himself. Eric Slick is an incredible drummer who really got behind the groove of the rhythm guitar I set in the song demos. Everyone knew how to service the songs and lift them up. Did you find some personal resolution by the end of the album, hence the closer, “Let It All Go Man”? I think we all lose sight of the purpose of being a human being. It’s not to make money or voice our opinions on the Internet. The true purpose is to see the world for the beautiful thing that it is. It’s nice to appreciate a sunset dipping behind the mountains, or at least to find something like that every day. That song really is about an approach—a mentality. Your dad, Bucky Baxter, appears on the album. Did his past work as a guitarist with the greats like Dylan and Steve Earle influence you when you were growing up?It does now. When I was a kid I knew it was cool, but I wasn’t really concerned with all that. As time has gone on, I’ve really started to appreciate it. Now when I go back and listen to a Dylan album with my dad on it, I feel a different connection to the music. It adds more fuel to the fire for what I’m doing now. You’ve mentioned in the past that you’re into the outdoors. These days, how do you like to stretch your legs in between tour stops?On my off days I like to paddle down a river or take really long walks. When I’m home in Nashville, my family has secluded property outside of the city where I go fishing with my pops.Rayland Baxter headlines the first night of the Devils Backbone Hoopla Festival in Roseland, Va.

Nassau Jail Medical Provider Fined $350K in AG Suit Settlement

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Nassau County jail’s health provider was fined $350,000 and temporarily barred from working in New York State after settling a lawsuit in which the state alleged the company failed to properly treat inmates.Florida-based Armor Correctional Health Services agreed to not bid on jail health services in the state for three years under the settlement of the lawsuit announced Wednesday by State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s office, which alleged that Armor risked inmates’ health by failing to meet its contractual obligations.“For-profit jail providers must ensure that appropriate medical care is provided in jails, where many inmates suffer from complex medical needs,” Schneiderman said. “When these companies fail to uphold their contractual obligations, they not only defraud taxpayers, the health of inmates, and, by extension, the health of the general population, is jeopardized.”Nassau approved an $11 million annual contract with Armor in 2011. A month after Schneiderman filed suit against Armor in July, the company said it would not bid to renew its contract with the Nassau. In September, the county hired an independent jail health care monitor—another goal of the lawsuit—to ease the transition to a new inmate medical provider and ensure contract compliance.The state had accused Armor of neglecting to provide the county with timely statistics detailing the services it provided. Nassau then withheld payment to Armor until the company provided those stats.RELATED STORY: Nassau County Jail: Suicides, Healthcare Changes, Budget Cuts Prompt Calls For Oversight“Armor is pleased to have the New York Attorney General … matter resolved in order to focus on and expedite a smooth transition with the new medical provider in Nassau,” Armor said in a statement. “Armor provided the NY AG with clinical data that clearly supported the enhancement of patient care to an extremely acute patient population. We are exceptionally proud of our caregivers for the dedication and passion they have continually demonstrated under challenging circumstances.”The attorney general’s suit was filed after the state Commission on Corrections blamed Armor’s staff for failing to prevent the deaths of five inmates. Those deaths are subject of lawsuits filed by the inmates’ families.The state attorney general’s office will retain $100,000 of the fine as payment of penalties and the other $250,000 will be given to Nassau as reimbursement for Armor’s performance.Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano had proposed privatizing the jail’s health care in an effort to save taxpayer money in his first term.“I thank the Attorney General for his efforts in settling this matter as we move forward in contracting with a subsequent inmate health care provider,” Mangano said.last_img read more

Asian leaders vow to share H5N1 samples as outbreaks continue

first_imgJun 8, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – Health ministers from Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) nations, wrapping up a 2-day meeting in Sydney today, promised to share H5N1 avian influenza samples.In other developments, English officials yesterday reported another outbreak of the low pathogenic H7N2 avian flu at a small farm not far from the site of a recent outbreak in Wales. Elsewhere, Malaysian officials announced an H5N1 outbreak near Kuala Lumpur, and Vietnam said recent outbreaks of the virus have spread to 16 provinces.APEC health ministers discuss H5N1In a statement released at the end of the 2-day APEC health ministers’ conference today, the ministers pledged to continue supporting WHO influenza surveillance with the timely sharing of virus samples. APEC’s 21 members include many of the countries that have been hardest hit by avian flu, including Indonesia, China, and Vietnam.Their statement acknowledges the concerns that Indonesia and other developing countries have about equitable access to pandemic vaccines. “We aim to ensure and promote the transparent, fair, and equitable sharing of benefits arising from the generation of information, diagnostics, medicines, vaccines, and other technologies associated with the sharing of virus samples,” the ministers said.The concerns came to a head this year when Indonesia withheld its H5N1 samples for about 5 months. In mid May, Indonesia said it had resumed sending sample to the WHO. At the World Health Assembly in late May, the WHO adopted a resolution calling for an international H5N1 vaccine stockpile, a system for fairly distributing the vaccines, and a group to draw up “terms of reference” for virus sharing.Tony Abbott, Australia’s health minister and chair of the APEC conference, said he was pleased that Indonesia was part of the latest agreement, according to an Associated Press (AP) report. “We need to see exactly what is happening to this virus, because if we’re unable to continually track it, we’ll be unable to monitor the possibility of rapid mutation to something that could be effectively transmissible human-to-human,” he told the AP and other reporters.Also at the APEC meeting, a senior WHO official warned that the H5N1 virus is mutating rapidly and unpredictably, the Australian Associated Press (AAP) reported today.Shigeru Omi, WHO regional director for the Western Pacific, told AAP, “The virus is already entrenched, embedded in this part of the world, and it has been very, very unstable and changeable.”Omi said the virus has evolved from two distinct groups into four subgroups, adding, “And I would not be surprised to if we end up with more subclasses in the years to come,” he said.Though the current mutations have not clearly increased the likelihood of human-to-human transmission, they do show that the virus is “risky”, Omi told the AAP. “The longer the virus lasts, the more chance such a mutation will occur. It’s simple mathematics,” he said.Countries report more poultry outbreaksThe Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) in Britain announced in a statement yesterday that surveillance testing on a small farm in St. Helens in northwestern England, in the wake of a recent low pathogenic H7N2 avian flu outbreak in Wales, showed that poultry there were infected with the same subtype.DEFRA said the birds at the farm were purchased at a market in Chelford that was linked to the earlier Welsh outbreak. According to a recent British Health Protection Agency (HPA) statement, the Welsh outbreak was linked to four confirmed human cases—two from Wales and two from England, all mild. The two English patients had purchased poultry from a source associated with the Welsh cases, the HPA statement said.Fred Landeg, DEFRA’s chief veterinary officer, said in the statement that surveillance of farms around the area was extensive, and the St. Helens farm is the only place where poultry have shown evidence of H7N2 infection. Animal-health officials placed a 1-km restriction zone around the farm, are tracing bird movements and contacts, and are making plans to cull the birds. Media reports say the farm has a small number of chickens, ducks, and peacocks.Meanwhile, veterinary officials in Malaysia confirmed an H5N1 avian flu outbreak 3 days ago near Kuala Lumpur, Agence-France Presse (AFP) reported yesterday. Authorities culled 1,359 birds around the affected village, the AFP report said. The outbreak is Malaysia’s first since February 2006, according to reports from the World Animal Health Organization (OIE).Kamarudin Mohammad Isa, a disease control specialist at Malaysia’s department of veterinary services, told AFP the affected birds included chickens and quail and that authorities had not yet determined the source of the virus.There were no confirmed reports of human H5N1 cases, Health Minister Chua Soi Lek told AFP. However, another AFP report today said five Malaysians from the outbreak village have been hospitalized with influenza symptoms. Malaysia has never had a confirmed human H5N1 case.In Vietnam, the number of provinces reporting recent H5N1 outbreaks in poultry rose to 16, Reuters reported yesterday. The country’s animal health department said 240 ducks died in Phu Tho province in northern Vietnam.Three Vietnamese patients were hospitalized with suspected avian flu, Xinhua, China’s state news agency, reported yesterday. They were admitted to the Tropical Disease Hospital in Hanoi, and their test results were expected in 2 or 3 days, the report said.After a nearly 19-month hiatus in human H5N1 infections, Vietnam recently reported cases in a slaughterhouse worker and a 30-year-old farmer. Both are said to be recovering, and their cases are awaiting WHO confirmation.Few Indonesians see avian flu as threatA survey of Indonesians’ attitudes about avian flu revealed that 97% were aware of the virus, but only 15% saw it as a direct threat to them or their families, the Jakarta Post reported yesterday.”Many people still say ‘I know the that the disease is dangerous, but it’s other people’s problem, not mine,'” said Bayu Krisnamurthi, head of the Indonesian National Commission for Avian Influenza and Pandemic Preparedness, the group that released the data.Indonesians should learn from the Egyptians, who have a lower human death toll because they seek immediate medical care, he told reporters, according to the Post report.Commission data show that the human death rate in Indonesia from June 2006 to May 2007 rose to 86.4%, from 74.5% the previous year, the Post reported.About 57% of Indonesia’s avian flu patients had contact with dead or infected poultry, 29% lived near poultry farms where sick or dead poultry were reported, and 1% had contact with poultry feces, the commission said. For 13% of patients the source was not known.Only two of Indonesia’s 33 provinces—North Maluku and Gorontalo—remain free of the disease, the report said.See also:APEC health ministers’ statementlast_img read more

Harry Kane enjoying life at the top after his meteoric rise for club and country

first_imgHarry Kane’s remarkable rise over the past 12 months has seen the striker become a Tottenham favourite, England regular and wedding crasher. It is hard to believe what a rapid, fairy-tale ascent the 22-year-old has enjoyed, having gone from third-choice frontman at White Hart Lane to score 31 goals for his boyhood club and net 79 seconds into his international debut. “Hectic” and “crazy” are the words Kane uses to describe a period for which the catalyst was his deflected free-kick as Spurs come from behind to beat Aston Villa last November. “Life has changed a lot,” he said of the time since his first league goal of the 2014/15 season. “I’ve started every game in the Premier League since that day, touch wood. “Outside of football, too, being an England international you get a lot more publicity and more fans coming up to you on the street or in a restaurant. “So, yes, it’s been a crazy year, but it’s all good and hopefully there is more to come.” Kane does not mind the fame side of things – “I know what is like to go up to ask for a picture or be star struck” – and still remembers what it was like when he met David Beckham as a kid, even if there is one request that still amuses him. “I get people ask me to do wedding videos, to say congratulations,” Kane said, smiling. “I’ve had that quite a lot. “This is just more people sometimes seeing me in the street or out and about. It’s more of a best man thing. Obviously there’s a lot of Spurs and England fans out there.” Kane laughed when it was mentioned that he has appeared at a lot of weddings he has never been to, but the desire of people he does not know to have him involved in such a special day underlines what a popular public figure the forward has become. “I went away with the missus and went away on a beach spending time looking back at what has been great season for me,” he said when asked if he could absorb what has happened. “Obviously this season, the games come so quick and fast, that you don’t have a chance to think about things. “You just get on with it, do your job and its more at the end of the season when you look back and think about what could have been.” There was certainly little to moan about last season, while this term’s bumpy start has also appears to have become a distant memory. Having been cast as the golden boy of English football, Kane found himself under the scrutiny after struggling to net at the start of the season – a frustrating run ended with six goals in four matches in all competitions for Spurs. “I’m always confident in my ability,” he said “I think even when I weren’t scoring goals, I didn’t feel I was playing bad. I still felt I was contributing to the team. We were playing well as a team, we were picking up results. “It was just I think a matter of time. I’ve said before, you need a bit of luck now and then. I probably didn’t have that at the start of the season.” Kane’s most recent goal secured Tottenham a 1-1 draw at rivals Arsenal, where the forward had spent time between the age of seven and nine. Released for being too small, the self-confessed late developer has more determination than most to remain in peak physical shape to perform at the highest level. Kane’s next chance to do that will come at Wembley on Tuesday, when France visit for an important friendly in the build-up to Euro 2016. “During the last Euros in 2012, I was in Greece with my girlfriend,” he said, fresh from winning his seventh cap in Friday’s 2-0 defeat in Spain. “I remember dragging her out to watch the games. Instead of going out for meals I dragged her out to a bar to watch the games. “I remember watching it and thinking hopefully one day I can be playing at the Euros myself so four years later hopefully I can end the season playing in them.” Press Associationlast_img read more

Dmitrieff’s hat trick guides MDI boys past EHS in B North quarterfinals

first_img Hospice volunteers help families navigate grief and find hope – September 12, 2020 Ellsworth runners compete in virtual Boston Marathon – September 16, 2020 BAR HARBOR — Eight days after playing to a stalemate, the Mount Desert Island and Ellsworth boys’ soccer team appeared headed for the same result on the same field.It certainly seemed fitting; after last Tuesday’s back-and-forth affair saw neither team gain the upper hand, MDI and Ellsworth were again deadlocked, this time in a winner-take-all playoff game. With only the last dozen or so minutes remaining in this Northern Maine quarterfinal battle, it appeared as if overtime or penalty kicks would be needed to break the two-game stalemate.Then, in a flash, Nick Dmitrieff changed everything.Dmitrieff highlighted a hat trick with two second-half goals Wednesday to give MDI a 4-1 win over Ellsworth in the Class B North quarterfinals. The senior’s three tallies marked the first multi-goal game of his career and sent the Trojans to the regional semis for the first time in five years.MDI’s Henning Reinholdt defends against Ellsworth’s Jacob Pung during the first half of a boys’ soccer playoff game Oct. 30 in Bar Harbor. The No. 3 Trojans (11-2-2) will host No. 10 Foxcroft (9-7) in the Class B North semifinals at 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2. ELLSWORTH AMERICAN PHOTO BY MIKE MANDELLThis is placeholder textThis is placeholder text“I’ve never scored more than once in a game, so this is kind of amazing,” Dmitrieff said. “This is the playoffs, and it’s important to be able to step up when it matters.”Sixth-ranked Ellsworth (5-8-2) got off to the better start to the game, possessing the ball in the attacking half and keeping the Trojans from making any noteworthy pushes toward goal. The Eagles put significant pressure on the MDI defense through Tulas Weaver, who sent a solid effort just high of the crossbar with 19 minutes left in the first half.Against the run of play, No. 3 MDI (11-2-2) took a 1-0 lead through Dmitrieff 15 minutes, 44 seconds before halftime. The goal came as Dmitrieff beat the Ellsworth defense on the right side of the 6-yard box and sent a rolling shot to the bottom-left corner.Ellsworth continued to create scoring chances for the remainder of the first half, though, and the Eagles tied it less than five minutes into the second as Matt Reid’s well-placed header found the back of the net. The visitors continued their offensive onslaught over the next 20 minutes and nearly took the lead with 15 to play when Reid struck the football crossbar.Yet with 12:17 remaining, MDI scored against the run of play a second time as Dmitrieff guided a loose ball in the penalty area into the back of the net to give the Trojans a 2-1 lead. Four minutes later, he bagged his third goal of the night with a long-range shot from the edge of the 18-yard box to the bottom-right corner.“I had a chance like that last time we played Ellsworth, and I wanted to take advantage this time,” Dmitrieff said of his third goal. “I didn’t overthink it; I just shot it, and it went in.”The Trojans scored their fourth and final goal with 3:29 to play as Ieuan Howell fired a powerful shot of his own into the top-right corner. That goal put the result beyond a shadow of a doubt and capped off a scoring barrage that MDI had been trying desperately to find.Ellsworth’s Sam Holler looks on as members of the MDI boys’ soccer team players celebrate Nick Dmitrieff’s first-half goal Oct. 30 in Bar Harbor. The sixth-ranked Eagles finished the season with a record of 5-8-2. ELLSWORTH AMERICAN PHOTO BY MIKE MANDELL“We spoke at halftime about how one wasn’t going to do it because one never does it,” assistant coach Max Mason said. “Playing a full game means playing a full 80 minutes, and we found a way to get those goals by playing MDI soccer.”For Ellsworth, the loss ended a season in which the Eagles dealt with numerous injuries and other player absences. Yet after the Eagles overcame such adversity to finish the regular season on a four-game unbeaten streak and return to the Class B North playoffs after a one-year hiatus, head coach Paul Lock couldn’t be anything but proud.“They had so many things happen to them this season, and after each occurrence, they were able to look each other in the eyes and pull it back together,” Lock said. “No matter how many players we lost, they went out there on each field and played each game touch by touch.”As for MDI, the Trojans will be back at home against No. 10 Foxcroft (9-7) at 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2. The two teams have already met once this season with the Trojans beating the Ponies 3-0 on Oct. 19 in Bar Harbor.Dmitrieff scored the third and final goal in that game to put the finishing touches on MDI’s victory. After Wednesday night’s scoring outburst, he will be hungry to continue his recent success as his team plays for a spot in the Northern Maine title game.“We have great team chemistry right now, and we obviously want to keep going as long as we can,” Dmitrieff said. “It’s great that we’re playing our best soccer at the right time, and I’m glad I can be a part of it.”Update: This story has been updated to include the time and date of MDI’s Class B North semifinal game against Foxcroft.
