He explained,Twenty years ago me, Dave and Adam and Jeff Austin stood on this stage and we shared our music with you for the first time. We woke up today and the internet was on fire with rumors and speculation about our brother Jeff Austin. And what we can say is that he is still with us.

This is what we’re going to send his way. Yonder then worked their way into “Half Moon Rising”, a song that Jeff Austin wrote and Yonder has put on the shelf since Jeff departed the band in 2014.Also on Saturday, Umphrey’s McGee invited Turkuaz’s Shira Elias, Sammi Garett, Christopher Brouwers, Greg Sanderson, and Joshua Schwartz up on stage at Red Rocks Amphitheatre to assist on a cover of The Beatles‘ “I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends”, which was dedicated to Austin.last_img read more


University of Denver Students Launch Free Bike Lending Library

Posted On Feb 27 2021 by

first_img The bikes, designed to be durable, safe and easy to operate, sport baskets that can hold up to 25 pounds, tail lights powered by the motion of the wheels, and seats that adjust to fit riders with the flick of a lever. Locks are built into the bikes so they can’t get lost or left behind. Bikes will be kept in specially marked racks outside the residence halls where they are loaned out. When the citywide Denver bike sharing program launches in April, about 600 bikes will be available at up to 50 solar-powered self-service kiosks spread across the city. Users can check out a bike at one location with the swipe of a card, and return it clear across town. DU is expected to house at least two of those kiosks. The city-University partnership is believed to be the first of its kind in the United States. “I hope everyone on campus, that includes faculty and staff, uses these,” one student said. “The fewer automobiles we drive, the more that students and the rest of us use our legs or a bicycle, it’s making an impact.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMoreA student-led bike library opened Sept. 24 at the University of Denver offering high-tech bikes on loan for free, and a glimpse of the citywide bike sharing program that gets rolling next spring. The free DU lending library is open to all students, faculty and staff using the same bikes that will dot the city landscape in early 2010. The bike library is part of Denver University’s (DU) sustainability efforts that incorporate conservation, recycling and innovative building design. Bikes will be available for free use with DU identification. The establishment of the bike library was led by the Undergraduate Student Government, which contributed and raised some $50,000. “It’s really a perfect solution for a lot of students like me who don’t have a bike,” said student government senator Dillon Doyle. “I wouldn’t use a bicycle every day, but if I could just borrow one, I’d use one once a week to run errands or buy groceries.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMorelast_img read more

‘Sensory Bliss’ at Lavender by the Bay

Independent/Summer Borsackcenter_img Lavender by the Bay, East Marion Lavender by the Bay, Calverton Lavender by the Bay, Calverton Lavender by the Bay, East Marion Summer plans have changed. Faraway trips are not on the itinerary. But a trip to Lavender by the Bay may just make you feel like you’re somewhere else altogether.The colors, the smells, the textures. It is indeed “sensory bliss,” as Summer Borsack refers to the intoxicating surroundings, during a time when our senses may need some stimulation after months cooped up during quarantine.Borsack, a Springs resident, has made several trips to both the East Marion and Calverton farms, each with 15 acres of blooming lavender fields. “Some people go to take photos, some just to enjoy the experience of walking the fields, having the lush, thick lavender brush against your legs as the aroma floats up, breathing in the amazing scent.”It is an experience that almost went unattainable because of the pandemic. Susan Rozenbaum, who owns Lavender by the Bay with her husband, Serge, and their son Chanan, says initially they decided not to open the fields to the public this summer because of COVID-19, feeling their normal operations were not conducive to the necessary social distancing.However, Chanan found a service that could help with online ticketing for field entry. They opened the fields to a limited number of people during four 1.5-hour time slots at 9 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Social distancing and masks are required. And the guests arrived. Not that you’d necessarily know it, were you among them.“If you were to visit, you would say there’s nobody here,” Rozenbaum says. “That was the goal.”There are fewer options than ever for summer activities, especially for children. Splish Splash Water Park, located diagonally across from the Calverton farm, remains closed. Beaches are limited to 50% capacity. Many don’t feel comfortable with playdates. Yet people are thrilled to just walk through the lavender fields.“They’re thanking us for doing it,” Rozenbaum says, and the social media outpouring proves her point. “They find it a relaxing experience. People love it anyway, but especially now during a time of COVID, they feel it’s a pleasant experience. I hope they feel comfortable.”Lavender by the Bay’s Calverton location offers 15 acres of lavender fields. Independent/Summer BorsackGrowing lavender plants began as a hobby for Susan and Serge, who is French and worked on farms in France and Israel. They cultivated it in the backyard of their then vacation home in Southold, giving it away to guests and eventually setting up a table at the end of their driveway offering bunches and sachets.With so many people buying, they decided to purchase a fallow farm on the main road in East Marion in 2002 and started by planting two acres, adding on more each year until it reached 15 acres.There are more than 80,000 lavender plants there now, and the Calverton farm is in its third year of operation. They grow two types—English lavender and French lavender. “English lavender considered the true lavender,” Rozenbaum says, explaining that it much sweeter than French and is used in baking and in teas. It produces a more vibrant blue color to deep purple.French lavender, which can only be propagated from seed, is a much larger plant, with taller stems and a stronger scent. It tends to be used more medicinally. The purple is not as vibrant as in the English variety, but it ranges “from a pretty blue to a very pale blue,” she says.Summer Borsack’s daughter heads out onto the field at Lavender by the Bay in Calverton during a recent trip. Independent/Summer BorsackThere are main paths to walk lined with wood chips, so visitors are not stepping on the plants, which they do harvest for fresh and dried bunches, lavender-filled sachets, and aromatherapy and culinary products, all for purchase, including online. “This year, since people so happy to come see the fields…we’re just cutting for fresh bunches,” she says. There is also a limited quantity of lavender honey, available only for sale there, at a stand set up outdoors.Among the many options, guests find something they can call their own. “You can make the experience whatever you want it to be,” says Borsack, who took her young children. “I found that when I stopped trying to figure out what I should be doing, I enjoyed myself much more.”“We were just very happy that we could open up in a limited way. If we didn’t let people in the field, it wasn’t as if the lavender itself would go to waste,” Rozenbaum says, explaining that they would have still harvested and dried it. “We wouldn’t be losing the lavender, we would be losing the joy of people coming to visit.”Lavender by the Bay is located at 7540 Main Road, East Marion and in Calverton across from Splish Splash on Route 25.

Technip’s revenue up in first quarter 2015

Posted On Oct 6 2020 by

first_imgLNG engineer Technip said its revenue rose 17 percent to EUR 2.9 billion in the first quarter of 2015, as compared to the same period a year before.Thierry Pilenko, Chairman and CEO of Technip said the company’s first quarter was solid despite industry headwinds, “the Group’s adjusted revenue, operating profit (OIFRA) and net income grew respectively 17%, 43% and 28% compared to a year ago.”“As in the previous three quarters, performance was contrasted between our two segments. In Subsea, adjusted revenue growth was at a high level – 28% – and there was a substantial improvement in both margin and absolute profit compared to first quarter last year. Order intake was robust at over €1 billion including resilient demand for the Brazil pre-salt developments with a significant hi-tech flexible pipe award. Onshore/Offshore was not satisfactory. Although adjusted revenue grew thanks to the new projects (such as Yamal) won last year, adjusted operating profit fell to €24 million. Order intake was solid in terms of services contracts with early stage work and PMC contracts, but slower in EPC awards resulting in a low total value booked as order intake,” Pilenko said.Talking about Technip’s 2015 objectives, Pilenko said expectations for the Group overall remain unchanged but, recognizing that at this point Subsea is outperforming and Onshore/Offshore underperforming, the company raises its expectation for adjusted operating profit for Subsea to the top of the announced range at around €840 million and lower Onshore/Offshore to around the bottom of the announced range, so around €250 million.[mappress mapid=”17153″]Image: Techniplast_img read more
