moe. Performs Intimate Acoustic Set At Garcia’s [Full Audio/Gallery]

moe. spent their weekend at Port Chester, NY’s The Capitol Theatre, celebrating the holiday season with their first-ever, two-night Famoe.ly Holiday Concert series. “Two night” may not be the best phrase, because yesterday’s performance was actually played during the light of day, as an acoustic brunch set at Garcia’s – the smaller venue adjacent to the main Cap room.After a night spent in the main hall debuting new originals and dusting off tunes from their Seasons Greetings album, the band brought out the acoustics and worked through a very fun performance. They opened with some classics, “Not Coming Down > Wormwood > Okayalright,” and included a few holiday tunes in their setlist with “Hey It’s Christmas” (a debut), “Together at Christmas” and “Blue Christmas.” There was also time for an acoustic “Chromatic Nightmare,” as well as the show’s finale, an acoustic version of their new favorite cover song, “Jump Around.”Listen to the full audio below, courtesy of taper Brian V.

“We Have the Lowest Neonatal Mortality in the OECS” -Dr McIntyre

first_img Share 77 Views   no discussions Sharing is caring! The island’s Hon Health Minister, Dr Irving McIntyre says Dominica’s infant mortality rate is surpassing global expectations and is ahead of the region.He was again debunking a report published in The Lancet in November.The Lancet is a weekly peer-reviewed general medical journal  which is said to be among the world’s oldest, most prestigious, and best known general medical journals.The Lancet published an article describing Dominica as lagging far behind the rest of the world in its rate of childhood mortality.The article says the probability of children dying between the age of birth and five years old in Dominica is rising.The Ministry of Health and the Chief Medical Officer rebuked that report as totally erroneous.When the House of Parliament met last week, Hon Senator Annette Sanford raised the subject again prompting the Hon Health Minister, Dr Mcintyre to Respond.“When I hear people talk about our infant mortality, it’s very sad. Can you imagine the article in The Lancet, the author cannot even differentiate between intrapartum and neonatal mortality? Totally wrong,” he said.“The WHO Sustainable Development Goals puts the target* for neonatal mortality at 12 per 1,000 live births by 2030. We are only in 2020 and we have achieved 8.4 per 1,000,” Dr McIntyre announced. “And the WHO put the infant mortality target at 25 per 1,000 live births and we are at 8.3. We have achieved this already.”The SDG’s are an urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve oceans and forests.The Hon Minister assures, “We have the lowest neonatal mortality in the OECS. These are facts.”He says The Lancet article is based on estimates and not fact.*The targets mean that nations are to aim not to exceed those figures.

Trump speaks by presidential seal with Russian symbols and golf

first_imgPresident Trump spoke at a Turning Point USA summit Tuesday and stood before what appeared to be the US presidential seal.But further examination revealed the visual put behind him was actually a distorted image of the Presidential seal edited to look like Russia’s coat of arms.When Trump spoke at Turning Point USA summit of young conservative students, the visual put behind him was a parody Presidential seal showing an eagle with 2 heads (Russia), holding golf clubs and cash instead of arrows, and motto “45 es un titere” (Spanish for “45 is a puppet”). pic.twitter.com/fi7zZPzVrB— Christian Christensen (@ChrChristensen) July 25, 2019The eagle had two heads, like Russia’s national symbol, and the bird is holding golf clubs instead of arrows.Neither the White House nor the young conservative group knows how the apparent practical joke on the president got on the screen or who created it.“It was a last-minute A/V mistake and , I can’t figure out who did it yet,” a Turning Point spokesperson told The Washington Post.last_img read more
