Last night, the Tedeschi Trucks Band continued their Northeast domination with a powerful performance at the Hershey Theatre in Hershey, PA. The band has been nothing short of tremendous in 2016, starting off the year with the exciting Let Me Get By album and continuing with sold-out shows nationwide.Last weekend, the band had welcomed out the beloved Amy Helm in Buffalo, NY, to sing lead on the classic “Angel From Montgomery.” Last night, Ms. Helm was in the building yet again, as she opened the show iwth her band Amy Helm & The Handsome Strangers. This time, Helm joined TTB’s Susan Tedeschi and Alecia during the headlining set, and the three incredible female vocalists harmonized to perfection on the moving ballad “Color Of The Blues.”Watch footage of the performance, courtesy of YouTube user Chuck Kaiser:Thanks to taper edtyre, we have audio of the full performance.

Open a book to read. Gaze at a painting. Listen to music.For centuries, these private acts were at the heart of scholarship in the humanities, the cluster of academic disciplines that study the human condition.But 160 years ago, scholars began to think of literature at least as a cultural artifact subject to quantitative interpretation. In the 19th century, vocabulary-counting schemes were used to investigate the authorship of St. Paul’s writings and the plays of Shakespeare.Then came computers, and with them a growing desire to apply computational power to the humanities. Starting in 1949, an Italian Jesuit priest named Roberto Busa enlisted the aid of IBM computers to produce an index of the 11 million words of medieval Latin in writings by Thomas Aquinas and others. A flurry of interest in literary concordances followed, ushering in the first age of digital humanities.But now we are in the age of Digital Humanities 2.0, according to authorities at a recent panel of the same name, held at the Barker Center on Feb. 10 and sponsored by the Mahindra Humanities Center at Harvard.Future digital scholars will explore the meaning of a single work, figure, or period by layering text with images, audio, film, 3-D artifacts, markups, and other multimedia resources housed — often untouched — in archives around the world.Emerging models of such scholarship represent a “rich moment,” said panel moderator Jeffrey Schnapp, a Harvard professor of Romance languages and literatures and the founder 11 years ago of the groundbreaking Stanford Humanities Lab.Today, Schnapp directs the metaLAB (at) Harvard, a cross-University center for investigating new forms of digital scholarship. He called the center “a cluster of experiments” and “an invitation” to Harvard’s community of scholars — all of them poised at this new digital frontier.MetaLAB is hosted by Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society, where Schnapp is a fellow. (He is also a visiting professor of architecture at the Harvard Graduate School of Design.)Humanities 2.0 will offer up new “plausible genres for scholarly exchange,” said Schnapp, and they will likely share four features:The “animation” of archives: to process, preserve, distribute, and link archival material in a way that recognizes “visualization as a core feature of humanities scholarship,” he said. “The linguistic will take a visual turn” in this new scholarship, said panelist Peter Lunenfeld, a design and media arts professor at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).“Artifactual knowledge”: ways to layer 3-D artifacts and other images into more traditional narrative forms. Archives have expanded their collections, yet access is limited to these vast cultural repositories. Digital tools can “break up this logjam,” said Schnapp.“Thick mapping”: adding geospatial layers to arts and humanities scholarship. MetaLAB is incubating Zeega, an open-source tool kit that enables immersive multimedia projects. It’s being developed, in part, at Harvard. And panelist Todd Presner, a comparative literature professor at UCLA, introduced his 10-year project HyperCities, a way of presenting urban histories that layer old conceptions of place with new, interactive ones. “It’s a very, very rich way of thinking about place,” he said. “This is not ‘thin mapping’ anymore.”“Literary genomics”: a way of using “vastly expanded data sets” to investigate literature and other cultural treasures, said Schnapp. (As reported in the journal Science last year, a team of Harvard researchers used a 500 billion-word data set from 5.2 million Google-digitized books to analyze word occurrences between 1500 and 2008.)Despite these new tools, digital humanities remains “a complement to traditional practices of scholarship,” said Schnapp, not a way to displace them.But digital humanities will require rethinking what being an “author” means, panelists said. In a world known for scholars toiling in jealous solitude, the humanities may adopt a collaborative concept already common in the sciences: multiple authorship.How do you give credit for a digital project that uses new software, peer-reviewed literature, oral histories, and a stew of other inputs? “It raises huge questions,” said Presner, who described one project that had 18 authors, 12,000 lines of code, and other creative layers.Back when digital humanities meant using computers to count words, there was a “pleasure in explicit regimes” of quantitative scholarship that once belonged only to the sciences, said Johanna Drucker, an information studies professor at UCLA.But in a realm that is now so versatile and visual, the digital humanities have to find ways to express the ambiguity at the heart of so much culture.“Things that are subtle and complex,” said Drucker, “take longer to understand.”
Four years ago, “Science and Cooking” was whipped up by the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and the Alícia Foundation in Spain. The wildly popular public lecture series and companion course mix the culinary with the lab. World-class chefs and Harvard faculty illuminate research through experiments with food.On Monday, author and New York Times columnist Harold McGee opened this year’s series with an aphorism from Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin’s “Physiology of Taste”: “The discovery of a new dish confers more happiness on humanity than the discovery of a new star.”McGee dove into the history of science and cooking, starting locally with Woburn-born Sir Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford (1753-1814), widely considered the founder of kitchen science and the backer of a physics professorship at Harvard. It was a Rumford professor, Eben Norton Horsford, who gave us, in the mid-19th century, the baking powder we find so useful today, McGee added.Until recently, McGee said, scientific focus on cooking was always on safety, hygiene, and industrial manufacturing (such as how to can clams so they don’t spoil).Among his demonstrations, chef Dave Arnold showed how a “Chinese popping machine” was used to puff rice in the early 20th century.Today, the study of gastrophysics draws from psychology, culture, food structuring, and quantum chemistry, among other disciplines.Chef Dave Arnold followed McGee with experiments and a discussion of torching, broiling, heat, and flambé. He peppered his talk with kitchen tips such as, “Almost everything in the kitchen should be [measured] by weight, not volume” (with alcohol being a notable exception). He also demonstrated a “Chinese popping machine” to show how cereal manufacturers puffed rice in the early 20th century. The machine made a loud clang, and had quite a few people in the front rows squirming, as if it were about to blow up. Arnold accidently overheated the contraption, burning the rice, and then used a long metal stick to pry it open. With a startling bang and big puff, plumes of smoke poured out and rose in the hall, setting off fire alarms.There were cheers and hollers of delight, until someone came in and gently reminded the audience the alarms meant they had to evacuate.The “Science and Cooking” public lecture series runs through Dec. 9. Click here for more information. Beginning in October, the course will be offered through HarvardX, the University’s online learning initiative. Watch the course trailer here.
BOGOTÁ, Colombia – Jesús David Echeverry Trujillo, an alleged narco-trafficking member of the Junta Directiva de la Mafia gang, has been arrested, Gen. José Roberto León Riaño, director of the National Police said. Echeverry Trujillo, who was apprehended at a ranch outside the city of Girardota in the department of Antioquia, is suspected of working closely with narco-trafficker Daniel “El Loco” Barrera, who was taken into custody last week in Venezuela. Echeverry Trujillo allegedly has connections to several of Mexico’s most powerful narco-traffickers, including Joaquín “Chapo” Guzmán and the Beltrán Leyva brothers, Riaño said. Police also arrested 10 of Echeverry Trujillo’s alleged bodyguards and seized an array of weapons. Echeverry Trujillo initiated a series of battles to commandeer narco-trafficking in northwestern Colombia by fighting Erickson Vargas Cardona, the alleged leader of Los Urabeños who was recently apprehended.

US LNG equipment maker Chart Industries reported a net income of $18.7 million for the third quarter of the year as LNG fueling station orders hit a record high.Chart said its profit jumped 29.9 percent from $14.4 million in the second quarter of the year.Orders of $286.2 million for the third quarter contributed to a total record backlog of $755.6 million, an organic increase over the end of 2018 even when excluding the Calcasieu Pass $135 million order.Global LNG infrastructure activity continues to ramp up, with LNG opportunities currently being pursued by Chart in 71 countries. The focus of the activity is small-scale LNG, transportation and associated fueling stations, Chart said.The third quarter of 2019 was a record quarter for LNG fueling station orders, with 19 stations booked, compared to only 3 in the third quarter of 2018. This bumped the year to date total orders for fueling stations of 41 compared to 21 over the same period in 2018.Chart added that in the third quarter, it signed a memorandum of understanding with AG&P to develop LNG infrastructure in India and Southeast Asia, which included 6 LCNG stations in the third quarter in India.The company expects its 2020 revenue to be between $1.61 billion to $1.68 billion, while it could be boosted to the region between $1.72 billion $1.79 billion, should the company book additional big LNG orders which it expects based on current operator timelines for FID.These orders include formal notices to proceed on Driftwood LNG project by the end of the second quarter of 2020, as well as Plaquemines LNG and Corpus Christi Stege 3 projects, also in 2020.

… Britain’s Edmund upsets GasquetSPAIN’S Rafael Nadal and Germany’s Angelique Kerber were among the leading names to make early progress on day one of the US Open in New York.Kerber, seeded second in the women’s draw, led Polona Hercog 6-0, 1-0 when the Slovenian succumbed to leg cramps.Nadal, the men’s fourth seed and a two-time former champion, swept past Uzbekistan’s Denis Istomin 6-1, 6-4, 6-2.Nadal, who missed the French Open and Wimbledon with a wrist injury, said: “The most important thing is that I am here in New York. Injuries are part of the career. I had a hard time this year.”There was an early shock in the men’s draw as Britain’s Kyle Edmund upset French 13th seed Richard Gasquet 6-2, 6-2, 6-3.John Isner, the 20th seed, almost followed Gasquet out of the tournament but the American came back from two sets down to beat 18-year-old compatriot Frances Tiafoe 3-6, 4-6, 7-6 (7-5), 6-2, 7-6 (7-3).“It hurts, it hurts a lot,” said Tiafoe, who served for the match in the fifth set. “Especially not getting over the line.”Women’s third seed Garbine Muguruza of Spain avoided an upset as she fought back to beat Belgian Elise Mertens 2-6, 6-0, 6-3.Australian Open champion Kerber made it through to round two without dropping a game, as she looks to land a second major title and end Serena Williams’ 185-week run at the top of the rankings.Kerber, 28, came within one match win of toppling the American eight days ago in Cincinnati, and Muguruza and Agnieszka Radwanska also have a chance to do so in New York.
