Oteil Burbridge Announces Debut Performance With Melvin Seals & JGB

first_imgWell this should be a fun one! On February 25th, 2017, at the famed Warfield venue in San Francisco, bassist Oteil Burbridge will make his debut with the beloved Melvin Seals & JGB. The bassist has spend the last year as part of the newest project to feature members of the Grateful Dead, Dead & Company. This will only allow Burbridge to take his appreciation to the next level.Melvin Seals has been faithfully carrying on the torch of Jerry Garcia’s solo project, which focuses on more of an R&B catalog of covers than Garcia’s original music. Expect Oteil to rise to the occasion, bringing his upbeat demeanor and lightning-bolt-shaped hairstyle into this wonderful band.The show will also feature original JGB vocalists Jackie LaBranch and Gloria Jones, as well as famed guitarist Stu Allen. This should be nothing short of excellent, with Allen’s faithful recreation of Garcia’s tone combined with original members of Garcia’s band, and Oteil Burbridge on the bass.Check out the artwork below, and head here for the details.last_img read more

Gobernador Wolf: El plan de reapertura medido y gradual del estado tiene éxito al tiempo que otros estados ven el aumento de casos

first_img Press Release,  Public Health Al tiempo que Pennsylvania continúa implementando el Proceso de reapertura de Pennsylvania del Gobernador Tom Wolf, el estado también está entre los pocos que tienen una disminución constante en el número de casos, un indicador positivo de que el plan de reapertura gradual y medido del estado funciona para equilibrar la salud pública con la recuperación económica.Según el análisis de la información obtenida de los datos del Centro de Recursos de Coronavirus de la Johns Hopkins University, la disminución constante de los casos en Pennsylvania desde un pico a mediados de abril es particularmente importante a medida que más condados vuelven a abrir. El último informe indica que Pennsylvania se encuentra entre los estados que tienen una disminución sostenida de los casos en las últimas dos semanas, un indicador importante de que los planes de reapertura son calculados y planificados.En un análisis de Associated Press, más de la mitad de los estados en los Estados Unidos están sufriendo un aumento en los casos de COVID-19 a medida que comienza la reapertura. Pennsylvania no está incluido entre ellos. Muchos otros estados están presentando aumentos significativos en el número de casos vinculados a reabrir demasiado temprano o demasiadas áreas.“El proceso escalonado y medido de reapertura de Pennsylvania es exitoso debido a su enfoque cauteloso que incluye factores que se basan en la ciencia, el consejo de expertos en salud y que les pide a todos que hagan algo tan simple como usar una máscara cuando están en espacios cerrados o alrededor de otras personas fuera del hogar”, dijo elGobernador Tom Wolf. “Seguiremos avanzando con cautela”.Un análisis mediante el software Tableau Public de los estados usa cuatro factores principales: pruebas diarias, pruebas positivas diarias, hospitalizaciones actuales y muertes diarias que muestran que Pennsylvania tiene un aumento significativo en la realización de pruebas acompañado de fuertes caídas de casos positivos, hospitalizaciones y muertes desde un pico a mediados de abril. Y si bien el país en general presenta disminuciones en los casos, en las hospitalizaciones y las muertes, muchos estados están viendo aumentos que son motivo de preocupación a medida que se expande la reapertura.El uso de máscaras ha demostrado ser un importante elemento de prevención de la propagación del virus.Un estudio reciente de las universidades de Cambridge y Greenwich en el Reino Unido determinó que las máscaras de tela, “incluso las máscaras caseras con eficacia limitada pueden reducir drásticamente las tasas de transmisión si las usan suficientes personas, independientemente de si presentan síntomas”.El estudio también indica que el uso de máscaras será especialmente necesario ya que en el otoño es posible que se produzca una segunda ola del virus.Pennsylvania ha instado a usar máscaras durante su respuesta a la pandemia e incluso a medida que los condados alcanzan la fase verde de reapertura, las máscaras siguen siendo obligatorias al ingresar a las empresas y se recomienda su uso en cualquier espacio donde sea difícil mantener el distanciamiento social. La guía para empresas describe el uso de máscaras para empleados y clientes.“La Secretaria del Departamento de Salud, Dra. Rachel Levine, lo ha dicho innumerables veces: ‘Mi máscara lo protege y su máscara me protege’, y es importante que todos los residentes de Pennsylvania lo recuerden a medida que continuamos una reapertura exitosa y segura del estado”, dijo el Gobernador Wolf.Para obtener más información sobre los casos de COVID-19, consulte el panel de datos aquí.

Prairie Ridge celebrating 50th anniversary

first_imgMASON CITY — Prairie Ridge in Mason City on Thursday celebrated its 50th year of providing quality substance abuse and mental health treatment to individuals and families throughout the area.Executive director Lorrie Young says the organization is excited to be marking five decades of service to the community. “There’s been a lot of change over the last 50 years both in terms of policy and funding, but we’re at a point where we understand that outcomes improve when we can provide truly integrated care, whole person care for the individuals we serve. We’re excited to be able to provide treatment for substance use disorders and gambling disorders as we have historically, and two years ago becoming the community mental health center in adding mental health treatment.”Young says people may not be aware of Prairie Ridge taking over mental health services from Wellsource and the former North Iowa Mental Health Center a few years ago. She says her organization as well as several private mental health service providers have been trying to step up to serve the needs of the community.  “We know that even with everybody doing the best that they can, there’s still not enough services to meet the demand. So while we are really proud of the fact that that we started from day one working to meet the needs of the individuals that were being served by the mental health center, we also remain eternally grateful to the community partners that were a significant part of making sure that nobody fell through the cracks when that transition happened.”A new full-service pharmacy is currently being constructed in the Prairie Ridge building. Young says research shows that patients are helped more when there is an on-site pharmacy where they are getting treated. She says they are partnering with Genoa Pharmacies, which specializes in medications to treat behavioral healthcare conditions. “So they are really instrumental in helping to provide patient education, consultation support, getting pre-authorizations, making sure that patients have what they need when they need it. I also think that for a lot of our patients, when they’re struggling, having to go five or six different places to get their needs met can feel really, really overwhelming. A lot of them have transportation concerns, so to be able to do everything in one location, to be able to see a provider, get a prescription if they need it, be able to get their medication on site, for patient to have injections to be able to have somebody to do that here, it just simplifies their lives in a way that it’s something we can do to make it easier for them.”Young says Prairie Ridge is blessed and grateful to the communities that they’ve been able to serve in the last 50 years.  “We’re grateful for all of you in helping to get the word out that help is available, that care is available in an environment that doesn’t see the people we serve is broken, but sees them as courageous individuals, making choices to live their lives with purpose.”Yesterday’s celebration was for staff and employees. A public celebration as well as 5K walk and run will be held on their campus at 320 North Eisenhower on Saturday September 21stlast_img read more
