Perpetual Groove Shares First Studio Album Since 2010 [Full Stream/Review]

Posted on by

first_imgFans of Perpetual Groove have waited a long time to hear Familiar Stare, the band’s first studio offering since 2010’s Heal and the first with the band’s original lineup since 2007’s LIVELOVEDIE. After overcoming some legal difficulties, Brock Butler masterfully leads P-Groove on the brand new EP, which the band has released today through their independent Bandcamp account.The four-track album is filled with great music, capturing the slow and intoxicating beats that fans have come to know and love from Perpetual Groove. The album starts with “Fall,” a melodic number that was debuted earlier this year. “Best Of Anything” was also debuted recently, and features a more triumphant and powerful tone to entice the listener.After the first two songs, the EP takes an upbeat turn into the drum-fueled introduction of “Lemurs.” The song opens up into a serious jam session, the type of high-soaring whimsy that fans have come to expect from a P-Groove instrumental breakdown. “Lemurs” is one of the oldest songs on the album, as it was debuted five years ago, but the new studio cut offers a fresh take on the familiar tune.Finally, the album finishes with “Holy Ship.” With a stripped down intro that features both piano and vocals, the song builds with heavy drumming and the guitar section. It’s uplifting P Groove at their finest! With tight harmonies and great compositional flare, Perpetual Groove have set themselves on an upward trajectory with this great release.Stream the whole thing below, courtesy of the band!<a href=”http://perpetualgroove1.bandcamp.com/album/familiar-stare”>Familiar Stare by Perpetual Groove</a>last_img read more

The Legendary ‘Batigol’ Now Makes Polo Goals Tremble‎

Posted on by

first_imgBy Dialogo March 04, 2009 Gabriel Batistuta, adored at the Italian Fiorentina and the greatest striker in the history of Argentina’s ‎national soccer team, is now shaking the bars of polo goals while making fun of himself for often missing ‎with the mallet, missing many goals, and falling off his horse.‎ This week, the legendary ‘Batigol’ became Argentinean polo’s newest attraction after scoring the winning ‎goal for his team, Loro Piana, over Chapelco (12-11) during his debut at the ‘Campo Argentino del Polo,’ ‎the ‘cathedral’ of this elite sport.‎ ‎“My field of expertise is soccer, and despite having played today with a lot of adrenaline, I am still taking ‎my first steps in polo and embarrassing myself,” said the striker while in the central district of Palermo, ‎where he was acclaimed.‎ Surrounded by women, children, and a crowd of journalists on the field, the man who several times ‎mesmerized the fans of Newell’s Old Boys, Boca Juniors, Fiorentina, Roma, and Inter de Italia, showed ‎that his charisma, humor, and spirit remain the same.‎ At age 40, four years after leaving the soccer field, Batistuta traded his “rip-net” cleats for brown boots to ‎debut in the mythical metropolitan scenario during the third phase of the “IV Argentina Polo Tour Patio ‎Bullrich 2009.”‎ ‎“I think it is great that Batistuta has found his world in the sport of polo. His is a gentleman in and out of ‎the field,” said Marcela Lopez Delgado, a 39-year-old forensic doctor and polo lover.‎ People of all ages and social classes saw him riding and handling the mallet, showing that polo has ‎managed to leave the tight aristocratic circle thanks to Adolfito Cambiaso, the best player in the world and ‎Batistuta’s friend.‎ Playing as a forward and as his friend’s teammate, he scored the last point with a “bati-winner” attitude, ‎eclipsing with his charisma the “Maradona of Polo,” who scored eleven of the twelve goals for his team.‎ ‎“Batistuta surprised me in a good way, and all he needs is to improve his ‘swing,’” said polo player ‎Eduardo ‘Russo’ Heguy (former handicapped 10), honoring this famous polo family’s surname.‎ The crowd gave it up to the historical striker of the Argentina national team (56 goals), when he debuted in ‎Palermo wearing white jeans, a helmet, a mallet, a visor, and a navy blue shirt with a “1” on the back.‎ The team of this player, who was born in Santa Fe (central-east), where the fields are located, is called Loro ‎Piana, where its owner, the Italian businessman Alfio Marchini, also plays.‎ Despite his zero handicap, ‘Bati-polista’ broke social and sports barriers with his presence at a stand selling ‎bacon or Argentina steak sandwiches at a price equivalent to four dollars, beer for three dollars, and sodas ‎for two dollars in a rainy afternoon in Buenos Aires.‎ Diego and Marina White, a married couple who are fans of this exquisite sport and manufacturers of polo ‎uniforms, also admired Batistuta during the six chukkers of the game.‎ ‎“Most importantly, he rides the horse very well and his presence boosts the sport’s popularity,” said the ‎Whites.‎ At the fourth chukker, Batistuta almost scored, but his mallet fell and spun up in the air, and at the end of ‎the period he fell on the ground, due to inexperience.‎ In the fifth chukker he demonstrated why he is known as ‘Batigol,’ when, with one strike he earned soccer ‎cheers from the polo fans when the ball crossed in front of the net, bringing the match to a tie with nine ‎goals.‎last_img read more

Mexico: About 134 tons of marijuana seized

Posted on by

first_img MONTERREY, Mexico – Marines engaged in gunfights with suspected members of the Los Zetas cartel while the gang’s supporters put up at least a dozen roadblocks throughout the northeastern city of Monterrey, officials said. One marine and three suspected gunmen were killed during a fight in which suspected Los Zetas members opened fire and tossed grenades at a patrol on a highway in the western part of the city, according to a Navy statement. During the gunfight, suspected gang members took control of buses and other vehicles to block at least a dozen main streets in downtown, Alejandro Garza y Garza, the attorney general of Nuevo León state, said, according to The Associated Press. Gangs frequently have used blockades to prevent authorities from getting reinforcements during gunfights. The region has become one of the country’s most violent since the Gulf cartel and Los Zetas started a bloody turf war to control the region’s lucrative narcotics smuggling routes. Three marines were injured, and two of the three suspects died as a result of their vehicle catching fire during the gunfight. Marines confiscated three assault rifles, two handguns and ammunition after the battle, according to a Navy statement. Colombia: CTI dismantles Los Rastrojos narcotics trafficking cell “Many states, including ours, have been affected by the battles between criminal groups and between those groups and the authorities,” Nuevo León state Gov. Rodrigo Medina said, according to the AP. “This is a war that we did not start, that we did not bring to Nuevo León but that we must face.” Colombia: Navy seizes 343 kilograms of cocaine hydrochloride Mexico: Marines kill three suspected Los Zetas members TIJUANA, Mexico – President Felipe Calderón scored a major victory in his fight against narcotics this week when security forces confiscated about 134 tons of marijuana, the nation’s largest confiscation of marijuana ever, army officials said. Soldiers and police confiscated the marijuana during early morning raids in three neighborhoods in the city of Tijuana following a gunfight in which 11 gunmen were arrested, Army Gen. Alfonso Duarte Mújica said at a media conference. The marijuana, which officials said was en route to the United States, was discovered wrapped in 10,000 packages and had a street value in Mexico of about $4.2 billion pesos (US$340 million). The marijuana will be incinerated, Duarte said, according to The Associated Press. The operation started when gunmen in vehicles opened fire on a municipal police patrol, but no one was killed, Duarte said, adding a police officer and a suspect were wounded. Police arrested 11 and called the army and state police for support, Duarte said. The suspects gave officials the location of the marijuana, which was found in tractor trailers and residences. Before the bust, officials in Baja California state, where Tijuana is located, had seized a total of 115 tons of marijuana this year, according to the AP. BOGOTÁ, Colombia – The army has destroyed two narcotics laboratories collectively containing 8,400 kilograms (18,480 pounds) of coca leaves and chemicals used to turn the plants into cocaine in the municipality of Cumaribo in the department of Vichada. The military said the laboratories belonged to the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia’s (FARC) José Antonio Páez León de Apure unit, according to the Colombian website El Espectador.com. Airports in Brazil, West Africa work together in narcotics fight center_img By Dialogo October 20, 2010 BOGOTÁ, Colombia – The Colombian Technical Investigation Office (CTI) said it dismantled a cell of the narcotics trafficking organization Los Rastrojos in an operation that included the apprehension of six navy members suspected of assisting the group. The suspects allegedly received monthly payments to allow the gang’s members to conduct their illegal business in the municipalities of Tumaco and Mosquera in the department of Nariño. This cell of Los Rastrojos is accused of trafficking an average of three tons of cocaine monthly, among their other criminal activities along the country’s Pacific coast, CTI officials said, according to the Colombian website El Espectador. DAKAR, Senegal – The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime has started an initiative to improve the communication between police and airports in seven West African countries and Brazil in an effort to stop international narcotics trafficking. Narcotics traffickers have capitalized on communication gaps among the countries’ law enforcement agencies to turn western Africa into a hub for transporting narcotics from South America to Europe, officials said. BOGOTÁ, Colombia – The navy has seized 343 kilograms (754 pounds) of cocaine hydrochloride hidden in a mangrove in the Bay of Cispatá near the city of San Antero in the department of Córdoba. The narcotic, which had been divided into nine sacks, had a street value of about US$8.5 million, according to the Colombian website Todelar.com. No arrests were made during the seizure, officials said. Colombia: Army destroys two labs, 8,400 kilograms of coca leaves Cheikhou Cissé, a Senegalese senior interior ministry official, said the aim of the initiative, nicknamed “Aircop,” is “to establish secure communication between airports in West Africa and Latin America,” according to Agence France-Presse. Brazil, Cape Verde, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Mali, Nigeria, Senegal and Togo are participating in the project, and invitations have been extended to Guinea and Morocco. Between 200 and 300 tons of cocaine enters Europe annually by plane, according to the United Nations. Aircop, which has an estimated cost of €2.3 million (US$3.2 million dollars), is mostly funded by the European Union, according to AFP. “[The project will] bring together all agencies in charge of fighting trafficking and organized crime at the national level into a unit that can work with regional and trans-regional counterparts,” said Gilles Hervio, the head of the European Union delegation in Dakar, according to AFP. last_img read more

Of the Law on Family Agriculture (OPG) in the Croatian Parliament for adoption

Posted on by

first_imgToday, the Government of the Republic of Croatia supported the final text of the Family Farming Act (OPG) and sent it to the Croatian Parliament for adoption.For the first time, the law establishes a clear distinction between family farms, defines what are self-sufficient farms and what they produce for the market, but does not deprive anyone of the right to direct payments and marketing of their products.The purpose of this law is to direct family farms to the further development of their own capacities in both production and provision of services, to facilitate their professionalization in an increasingly demanding market. The law stipulates that the production resources of family farms are necessary for the performance of economic activity of agriculture and which are the main source of livelihood protected from enforcement, as well as property necessary for family life and housing of family members. The law also provides for the possibility that members of the extended family may assist in the work on seasonal and occasional jobs performed on family farms without the obligation to establish employment, and will enable further reduction of administrative and fiscal barriers.The law further motivates one family to manage one family farm in order to achieve faster consolidation of production resources with the aim of sustainable management and self-employment of family members.The obligation to register in the register of family farms is also being introduced, which will be done by the Agency for Payments in Agriculture. This will finally provide a complete database of producers and their products that they will market directly or only after processing. Until now, Croatian agriculture has never had reliable data on the production of family farms, of which there are about 150 thousand, which was a big minus when creating strategic projects. “Our family farms have encountered numerous obstacles that have hampered their business and development. We have now drafted a law exclusively for them, and today the Government of the Republic of Croatia gave its support to the final bill, and I believe that it will soon receive support in the Croatian Parliament, given that it was supported by more than 100 deputies in the first reading. ”  said Minister Tomislav Tolusic.The Minister emphasized that the law finally corrects the historical injustice towards family farms because crafts, cooperatives, entrepreneurs and many other groups have had their laws for a long time, so it is time for the business of family farms to be regulated through the legal framework. “The law provides a quality foundation for future business, enables safer development of production capacities and services, and most importantly opens easier access to EU funds and bank loans, and guarantees the exercise of some rights from other laws, such as the lease of state land.”Explained the Minister of Agriculture and added that the law will prevent” swindling “given that many have abused the name of the family, and now it will be known who has what resources and what and in what volume can offer the market.last_img read more

Indonesia picks McKinsey to revamp firms with $172b sales

Posted on by

first_imgIndonesia is working with consultants McKinsey & Co. and Boston Consulting Group to revamp state firms with a combined revenue of US$172 billion and dominate sectors from energy to construction and telecom.The global consultants will prepare a roadmap for the 114 state-owned enterprises, including oil behemoth PT Pertamina, power utility PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara and flag carrier PT Garuda Indonesia, according to State-Owned Enterprises Deputy Minister Budi Gunadi Sadikin. The revamp plan will be in line with President Joko Widodo’s 2020-24 national plan and is expected to be finalized by the end of February, he said.Indonesia has far too long relied on state companies to execute its economic agenda including building ports, roads and airports and saddled them with huge debt in the process. Jokowi, as the president is known, last year appointed business tycoon Erick Thohir as the State-Owned Enterprises Minister with a mandate to “build SOEs capable of expanding into global markets.” Erick, a former shareholder of FC Internazionale Milano SpA, or Inter Milan, D.C. United and the Philadelphia 76ers, has pledged to revamp the SOEs either through mergers or liquidation and reduce the myriad number of units the companies operate.The SOEs will be restructured to promote business innovation, technological leadership and the ability to partner with world-class companies, Budi, a former chief executive of state-run PT Bank Mandiri, said in an interview. “We would like to create an ecosystem, where all state owned CEOs have the skills to deal with international investors,” he said.Global partnerships will be key for state firms as Jokowi wants to transform Indonesia to a manufacturing powerhouse from being a supplier of raw materials. The country has set its eyes on becoming a hub for electric batteries with its huge nickel reserves and processor of crude palm oil and coal into fuel to power vehicles and substitute liquefied petroleum gas.Sixty-four companies under Budi’s supervision have been divided into 12 clusters for easy monitoring and management. “I will just have to deal with 12 CEOs instead of 64 CEOs,” Budi said. PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia will be revamped to boost return on its investment in building a nationwide telecom infrastructure, Budi said adding the carrier may explore collaboration with mobile phone application developers to boost margins.State-owned companies in the basic industries will be encouraged to partner with foreign firms for advanced technology, Budi said. Pertamina’s tie-up with Abu Dhabi’s Mubadala Investment Co. for a refinery and coal miner PT Bukit Asam’s joint venture with Air Products and Chemicals Inc. were moves to tap newer technology, he said.State-owned enterprises posted a net income of Rp 138.1 trillion ($10 billion) in 2018 with sales of Rp 2,360 trillion, official data show. The companies had assets worth Rp 8,200 trillion while their liabilities stood at Rp 5,604 trillion.center_img Topics :last_img read more
