Full Audio From Umphrey’s McGee’s Two Night Run In Missoula Has Emerged

first_imgUmphrey’s McGee is bringing the heat on their West Coast tour, starting in Idaho before working their way to The Wilma in Missoula, MT for a two night run last weekend. The band was in fine form for the two shows, bringing unique song sandwiches, bust out covers, and more to their fans in Big Sky country.Whether it was the bust out Tenacious D cover (the first “Kielbasa” in 15 years!), sandwich versions of “All In TIme,” “Mantis,” “1348” and more, or covers of hits like “I Am The Walrus” and “Layla,” there’s no denying that these were two great performances put down from Umph. Fortunately, taper Mark Smith was on hand to capture the magic.Listen to full audio recordings from both shows, streaming below.3/3/17:3/4/17:[Photo via Phierce Photo / Taken from Asheville, NC]last_img read more

Coding for a cause

first_img Wyss Institute creation is designed to instruct anyone from a 5-year-old to an intermediate programmer Harvard students teach computer science in local middle schools Planting the seeds of STEM Root, the code-teaching robotcenter_img When he was just 4 years old, Jelani Nelson got his first taste of what computers could do, and it came in the form of an animated plumber named Mario.For his birthday that year, Nelson’s parents gave him a Nintendo Entertainment System, and he quickly immersed himself in the world of video games. By the time he was 10, Nelson had moved on to PC and online gaming, and it was there that he discovered — nearly by accident — the code that makes the online world work.“I got into computers through gaming, and I had a computer at home with an internet connection,” he said. “I remember at some point I right-clicked on a webpage on my browser, and saw that it said ‘view source.’ That was how I learned HTML was a thing.”That discovery, Nelson said, not only set him on the road to teaching himself to code — first in HTML and later in other, more complex languages — but in some ways also put him on the path that eventually led to Harvard.These days, Nelson is the John L. Loeb Associate Professor of Engineering and Applied Sciences at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, where his work is focused on developing new algorithms to make computer systems work more efficiently. At the end of this academic year, he will leave Harvard to join the faculty of the University of California, Berkeley.“I’m in the theory of computation group here, and broadly what that means is modeling computation mathematically and proving theorems related to those models,” Nelson said. “So we may want to prove that a particular problem cannot be solved, or that any method that solves a problem has to use at least this much time or memory. Proving that there are methods that are memory- or time-efficient — that’s generally called algorithms.”Streaming and SketchingGenerally speaking, Nelson’s work is focused on two types of algorithms — streaming and sketching, which are focused on using very little memory.A basic way to understand streaming algorithms, Nelson said, is to imagine someone reading a list of numbers, then asking for their sum.“If I ask you at the end to tell me the sum of all the numbers, you can do that by keeping a running sum in your head, but you don’t need to remember every number,” he said. “But then if I ask you to tell me the fifth number, you won’t remember it, because you only kept this running tally. You only used just enough memory to answer a specific type of query.“That’s a simple example, but there are other situations that are not so simple, where it turns out there are very memory-efficient algorithms that don’t need to remember every item, but can answer nontrivial queries about the past,” he added. “For example, if I’m Amazon and I want to know what were the popular items people bought yesterday between 7 and 8 p.m., I want to be able to answer that without my data structure actually remembering the record of every sale during that time.”,By comparison, Nelson said, sketching algorithms are designed to let users answer questions about compressed data even if they don’t have access to the original data.“In the literature, a synonym for a sketch is a synopsis,” he said. “So sometimes you might have multiple sources of data … and you want to be able to make a sketch of one, and a sketch of the other, and then use those sketches to compare them without having access to the original data.”For a real-world application of such algorithms, Nelson said, consider your spam filter.“So the idea is that an email is a document, and you can apply a sketching algorithm to it to create a lower-dimensional representation,” he said. “You can then run a machine-learning algorithm on that data. And the idea is that now it is more efficient because it’s working on lower-dimensional data.”From the Caribbean to Cambridge While it wasn’t long after first discovering HTML that Nelson set out to teach himself to code, he quickly ran into an obstacle: The only bookstore in his hometown on St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands was woefully lacking in coding manuals.“When I was in seventh or eighth grade, we visited the mainland, and I went to a bookstore and bought an HTML book,” he said. “For practice, I wanted to make a website for my little sister. We both liked the [Nickelodeon show] ‘Rugrats,’ and I wanted to put a picture of Tommy on her webpage … but I was afraid of violating copyright, so I called Nickelodeon and asked them permission to include images from ‘Rugrats’ on the site, and they refused. But they took my info, and shortly afterward, we got a box in the mail with a bunch of swag, like VHS tapes and T-shirts and toys.”At the same time, Nelson said, he had also become deeply interested in math, and began taking part in competitions for middle schoolers run by the Alexandria, Va.–based nonprofit Mathcounts. As a seventh-grader he was one of a handful of students who represented the U.S. Virgin Islands at a national competition held in Washington, D.C.As a senior in high school, Nelson began to delve deeper into programming. He bought several books on the computer languages C and C++, and applied to MIT after seeing it was rated as the best in the nation for both computer science and mathematics.“When I got to MIT, I think I was surprised by all the things I didn’t know,” Nelson said. “In my high school, we didn’t have AP classes. … The highest level of math you could take was single-variable calculus, so I just didn’t know what existed in math beyond calculus. I had never really seen creative mathematical problem-solving before, so it was a big wake-up call.”It was at MIT, first as an undergraduate and later as a grad student, that Nelson began to show off one of his more unusual skills — his blazing fast typing speed. In 2010, he scored the top spot on TyperA, a website that hosts online typing tests, with a staggering 170 words per minute.“I used it as a procrastination mechanism,” he said. “I would just go and do these typing speed contests, and at some point I got to be at the top of the leaderboard. More recently people have passed me, but I think I’m still in the top five.”,Coding for a cause Nelson’s educational efforts aren’t limited to the Harvard campus. Shortly after completing his doctorate at MIT in 2011, he founded AddisCoder, an educational program in Ethiopia, where his mother is from, dedicated to teaching coding and algorithms to high school students in Addis Ababa.“I had graduated in early June, but my postdoc in Berkeley didn’t start until August, so I decided to visit some relatives in Ethiopia,” he said. “And I thought, ‘If I’m going to spend a lengthy amount of time here, what am I going to do besides hang out?’ And I thought, ‘Why don’t I teach a course?’ I ended up with 82 students, and I was the sole lecturer, with one volunteer teaching assistant.”Working with the Meles Zenawi Foundation, created in honor of the former Ethiopian prime minister, the program taught 175 students in the summer of 2018, coming from public schools across the country. Nearly half of them were female.“The classes run for four weeks, and each day there is about 90 minutes of lecture, and the rest of the time they’re in the computer lab, solving problems, so it’s very hands-on,” Nelson said. “When I partnered with the Meles Zenawi Foundation in 2016, we had a meeting with the Ministry of Education, and we said, ‘We see no reason why this shouldn’t be balanced; we’re certain you can find very capable women to recruit into the course.’ And they listened. The last two offerings have both included over 40 percent girls. Also, almost all students in the course had never coded before and really didn’t know what computer science was, so the program really helped to evangelize computer science to kids who otherwise might have never been exposed.”In addition to the classroom time, the program this past summer held a career day, which drew more than a dozen people — including two from Kenya and several from Ethiopia — who work in fields that require knowledge of computer science.“We wanted them to see that not only are there Facebooks and Googles, but that there are job opportunities locally for them as well,” Nelson said.

Lyndonville Savings Bank announces results

first_imgLyndonville Savings Bank Increases Dividend&Again LYNDONVILLE, VT– Charles Bucknam, President of Lyndonville Savings Bank announced that the Bank will pay a dividend of $.12 per share on July 12, 2004 to stockholders of record June 23, 2004. This represents a 9.0% increase in the dividend and the fourth increase in the past year reflecting continued improvement in the banks earnings. Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2004 (un-audited) amounted to $650,737 compared to $450,314 for the first six months of 2003 representing a 44.0% increase. The annualized return on average assets was 0.89 in the first half of 2004 compared to 0.66 for the same period in 2003. Total assets were $149,857,012 as of June 30, 2004 compared to $138,606,035 as of June 30, 2003. According to Bucknam, the significant year-to-year improvement in earnings is a direct result of improvements in the quality of the banks loan portfolio, a strong investment portfolio, and higher levels of non-interest income. The improvement in earnings was achieved even as the bank and the industry in general, faced continued pressure on net interest margins with the Federal Reserves policy of maintaining historically low interest rates. Bucknam attributes the growth in assets to our staffs continued commitment to deliver quality service and products to customers. Lyndonville Savings Bank stock has recently traded in the $16.00 – $16.25 per share range. The current annual dividend yield is 3.00% based upon a $16.00 per share price. Lyndonville Savings Bank services its customers from branches in Lyndonville, St. Johnsbury, Derby, Vergennes, and Enosburg Falls.last_img read more

Heavy wet snow knocks out power to 12,000 customers in eastern Vermont

first_imgAbout 12,000 CVPS customers are without power this morning. Heavy wet snow began building up and bringing down trees, tree limbs and lines primarily in Windham and Windsor counties around 4:30 a.m. A large transmission fault occurred at about 7 am, affecting more than 5,500 customers. Crews are working to sectionalize that problem, and restore power to those customers within the hour. The storm is expected to continue until early this afternoon, so we may also see additional outages this morning.‘Crews reported about 6 to 8 inches of heavy wet snow in Windsor and Windham counties,’ said spokeswoman Christine Rivers.The towns of Dummerston, Jamaica, Cavendish, Chester and Hartford were hit hardest earlier this morning, and now Woodstock Town and Village, among others are without power due to the transmission fault. We also have broken pole just outside the Riverside substation in Springfield.‘We will work as quickly as we safely can this morning to restore power to our customers, however we may see additional outages this morning, so numbers may go up,’ Rivers said. ‘Barring any large additional problems, power should be restored to customers by tonight.’Please check vtoutages.com and http://www.cvps.com/CustomerService/outages(link is external) for up-to-date power outage numbers by town, and page me if you need additional information.SAFETY — STAY AWAY FROM DOWNED POWER LINES Don’t touch or even go near downed wires! These wires can be energized and can cause serious injuries or death. If the line is blocking the road or in contact with a vehicle with people inside, call your local police or fire emergency number first. Then call CVPS. Instruct others to keep at least 50 feet away, and keep pets and livestock away as well.Assume all objects touching the power line are also energized. Never attempt to remove trees or limbs from any utility lines! Notify CVPS of the situation. CVPS offered several safety tips for coping with the outages:Treat any downed line as if it is live. Report the line to your local utility and fire department, stay at least 50 feet away from the line, and keep children and pets away as well.If using a generator, read and follow the owner’s manual before starting the generator. Never operate a generator inside any structure or near a structure. Use a transfer switch to ensure electricity is not accidentally fed onto a line where line crews must work.Keep freezers and refrigerators closed as much as possible to prevent food spoilage.If power goes out, turn off all electrical appliances except one light so you’ll know when service returns. Then, turn equipment back on slowly.CVPS 11.23.2011last_img read more

NAFCU-backed CFPB measures passed by appropriations panel

first_imgThe House Appropriations Subcommittee on Financial Services and General Government yesterday approved legislation that includes NAFCU-sought provisions on CFPB funding and structure, and funds for low-income credit unions and small-business lending.Approved by voice vote, the $21.7 billion 2017 fiscal year appropriations bill funding the Treasury Department, the Judiciary, the Small Business Administration and other related agencies will move on to the full committee for review.Included in the bill is a NAFCU-backed provision that would bring CFPB’s funding under the congressional appropriations process. The legislation also includes a NAFCU-sought change to the leadership structure of the bureau from a single director to a five-member commission. NAFCU Vice President of Legislative Affairs Brad Thaler wrote the subcommittee leaders Tuesday to convey the association’s support for the CFPB provisions.Both House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers, R-Ky., and Financial Services and General Government Subcommittee Chairman Ander Crenshaw, R-Fla., touted the legislation and its efforts to rein in agencies such as CFPB. Ranking Member José Serrano, D-N.Y., expressed concerns that the bill limits funding to the bureau. continue reading » 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

As the Pandemic Surges, C.D.C. Issues Increasingly Assertive Advice

first_img“While their role has been diminished during this current crisis, they play a very important role in all this,” she said. The new administration will rebuild public health and data infrastructure, restore C.D.C. staffing in its overseas outposts and give “control back to the C.D.C.”Within the C.D.C., there is a palpable sense of relief and a determination to return to an apolitical identity, according to four senior scientists who spoke on condition of anonymity because they feared for their jobs.- Advertisement – The turnabout began after the Trump administration meddled in the C.D.C.’s vaunted weekly bulletins, the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Reports, according to Dr. Thomas R. Frieden, who led the agency under President Barack Obama.Political appointees tried to revise, delay or even halt publication of the reports, sparking public outcry and condemnation at a congressional hearing. The dust-up precipitated the swift exit of Michael Caputo, a political appointee who had accused C.D.C. scientists of sedition, and Dr. Paul Alexander, a science adviser hired to help Mr. Caputo. – Advertisement –center_img “We couldn’t allow ourselves to be politicized at this moment in time,” said one of the scientists, who is involved in the agency’s pandemic response. “We weren’t going to spend time licking wounds and worrying about what had gone wrong in the past.”Another senior C.D.C. scientist said, “Sometimes you just feel compelled to say, ‘I don’t care what happens, I’ve got to do this.’”Until the pandemic, the C.D.C. was widely regarded as the world’s leading public health agency. But the muzzling of its scientists by the Trump administration and the politicization of some of its advice crippled its efforts to answer critical questions, experts say, including how schools, churches and businesses should reopen, and how Americans could best protect themselves and their families.- Advertisement –last_img read more

Would you open your home to 15 complete strangers?

first_imgCatherine O’Sullivan is opening up her home to strangers in the name of art, as part of a performance piece for Bleach* Festival, held on the Gold Coast. Picture Mike BatterhamOPENING your home to complete strangers might seem like a well, strange, concept but that’s exactly what Burleigh Heads local Catherine O’Sullivan is planning to do. The university administrator is one of 10 Gold Coasters who have volunteered their homes in the name of art.In its exclusive Australian premiere, Home Visit will see local hosts share personal stories and debate big issues affecting modern day Australians with international visitors.“It will be orchestrated to get people to talk about pieces of conversation, what it means to belong to a community and what it does for us,” said Ms O’Sullivan. Ms O’Sullivan will host 15 strangers from across the world for the Bleach* Festival project. Picture Mike Batterham“There will be some discussion about what it is to live in a democratic country and some of the values that drive us as Australia and how that filters down to what Gold Coasters are like, as well as the entrepreneurial spirit here and how the Gold Coast has evolved.” Ms O’Sullivan is planning to host her Home Visit on the north-facing veranda of the 1950s renovated Burleigh Heads home she shares with her fiance. “I’m really excited about how we can set up the outdoor area so they can get the best view and feel of Australia. We’ll be telling stories about what it’s like to live in Burleigh Heads and I’ve got some beautiful indigenous art I’d like to show them,” Ms O’Sullivan said. The concept was first launched in Europe by Berlin-based theatre company Rimini Protokoll.“We believe theatre doesn’t always have to happen in a theatre building. It can be in an office, a parliament, or a living room,” said Rimini Protokoll co-founder, Helgard Haug.“Home Visit Australia is a broader investigation of the tectonics of integration. What is Australia? And is there such a thing as an Australian cultural identity?”Those questions and more will be answered over 14 nights from March 29 to April 6, as part of Bleach* Festival’s line-up.More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa19 hours ago02:37Gold Coast property: Sovereign Islands mega mansion hits market with $16m price tag2 days ago Some of the food served in the new upstairs eating area at Paddock Bakery.

Conversation ranges from local foodie hotspots to political debate. Ms O’Sullivan will share local insight into the beauty of Burleigh Heads. The sessions run for about two hours.“I’ve been fortunate to travel myself and the one thing that resonates with me when I visit a city overseas is to visit some locals and get to see inside their house,” Ms O’Sullivan said. “Sometimes as a tourist when we travel internationally, we are left still wanting something more because we are looking at the outside of their lives.”“A recent trip to Japan was a really strong take away, I came home thinking countries should have these registers where you can have a meal with a local and find out where they go shopping, where they eat, things like that.”A Burleigh Heads local of five years, Ms O’Sullivan already has recommendations ready to go, and will be featuring local food and beer during her host evening.last_img read more
