Back in March, Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival announced its fourth-annual lineup. Slated to take place at Harlinsdale Farm in Franklin, Tennessee, on September 22nd and September 23rd, Pilgrimage has previously announced headliners Jack White, Chris Stapleton, Lionel Richie, as well as Hozier, Brandi Carlile, Counting Crows, Amoss Lee, Bleachers, and Lord Huron.However, today, the festival augmented its already loaded lineup, adding Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds to their 2018 schedule. Given that the Dave Matthews Band primarily took last year off from touring, the duo performed a few select performances in 2017 and headlined a destination event in Riviera Maya in January of 2018. With Dave Matthews Band touring again in 2018, the set at Pilgrimage will be one of two upcoming shows from Dave and Tim—another duo show has been announced in Canandaigua, NY, on June 26th, 2018.Tickets to Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival are currently on sale.

Up next, the band gears up for their inaugural Wave Spell Live festival from August 16th to 19th. Wave Spell will host four days of music across three stages, with the festival taking over the entirety of Belden Town, California, a town with a population of seven. As explained by the promoters, for the event, Wave Spell will rent the entire town for the event—the town’s residents will leave the site, meaning there will be absolutely no noise ordinances or curfews and the festival can go as late as it wants and be as loud as it wants.For this unique West Coast music festival, STS9 is slated to perform nine sets. The group will also host a headlining performance from BAAD Quartet, a supergroup composed of Dom Lalli (Big Gigantic), Alana Rocklin (STS9), Adam Deitch (Lettuce/Break Science), and Borahm Lee (Pretty Lights Live/Break Science), in addition to sets from David Phipps (solo), Zach Velmer, eDIT (Glitch Mob), Ooah (Glitch Mob), SunSquabi (two nights), Manic Focus, Charlesthefirst (two nights), Michal Menert, Antennae, Maddy O’Neal (two nights), Yak Attack (two nights), An-Ten-Nae, Chris Karns (Pretty Lights Live), and many more. For more information, head to the festival’s website here. STS9 has been on fire recently, with the band celebrating its 20th anniversary and showing just as much energy as ever. Earlier in July, the instrumental jamtronica fan-favorite out of California and Georgia embarked on an eight-night summer tour, which spanned from July 6th to 15th. For fans who missed out on these tour stops, the band has just released a compilation of summer tour 2018 highlights via a free playlist on Soundcloud.Arranged chronologically, the compilation starts with two tracks from STS9’s two-night opening run at Kansas City’s Crossroads KC—”Looking Back On Earth” from July 6th and “Frequency DnB” from July 7th. From there, the band offers a psychedelic rendition of “The Spectacle” from their stop in Minneapolis on July 8th and a funk-infused, bass-heavy take on “Gobnugget” from Indianapolis on July 10th. Up next is “Move My Peeps” from Camp Bisco and “Wave Spell” from a show at Richmond on July 13th. To round out STS9’s summer 2018 tour highlights, the band offers two tracks from their tour-closing run at North Carolina’s Pisgah Brewing Company, “Ramone & Emiglio” from July 14th and “The Rabble” from July 15th.You can listen to STS9’s summer tour highlights below.

Student Senate passed a resolution amending the responsibility of the Executive Programming Board and discussed sustainability at its meeting Wednesday. The student government branch also examined gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning (GLBTQ) issues. The Executive Programming Board is the division of student government that facilitates the coordination of its various programming groups. The resolution stipulates that the Board will use an online programming calendar to improve communication between the Student Union groups and will be required to meet three times annually. The Constitution of the Undergraduate Student Body previously required the Board to meet weekly. Rachel Novick, education and outreach program manager for the Office of Sustainability, spoke to senators about the University’s sustainability strategy. Novick said the Office of Sustainability hopes to reduce carbon emissions by 50 percent per gross square foot and attain a recycling rate of two-thirds by 2030. The Office of Sustainability also aims to minimize waste on campus. Engaging in sustainable practices will ultimately save the University money, Novick said. “When we look at the University setting aside operational money for this, they recognize that over the course of 20 years there may be times when they’re going to have to pay more for fuel because it’s more environmentally friendly [for example], but overall, sustainability saves organizations money,” she said. Novick said the global Catholic community has made strides toward increasing sustainability. “There are universities like Santa Clara and Notre Dame and Fordham and a lot of other places with sustainability programs, but they don’t necessarily reach the broader Catholic community, and in order to really make a difference … we really need to reach out and communicate and share what we’re learning here,” Novick said. Senate also discussed the possibilities of creating a gay-straight student alliance and adding sexual orientation to the University’s non-discrimination clause. Katie Rose, gender issues director for student government, said both issues are intertwined with religion, civil rights and creating a culture of acceptance. “If we’re going to call ourselves the top Catholic university in the country, I strongly believe we should be leading the way on social progress,” she said. Rose said the University is concerned about the legal implications of adding sexual orientation to the non-discrimination clause. Student body president Pat McCormick said although sexual orientation is not included in the current non-discrimination clause, the University does not support discrimination on any basis. “My sense is that the University believes that any claim on the basis of sexual orientation should be taken seriously and should be addressed within the University,” he said. “Essentially, a non-discrimination clause invites the state to enforce discrimination claims.” Junior class president Kevin Doherty said the University allows the government to intervene in cases of discrimination on other bases, such as race and sex. “It’s almost a discriminatory position to say we’re going to handle [issues of discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation] in-house, but we’re going to invite the state in on some [issues] and not others,” Doherty said. Doherty said if a student-run gay-straight alliance could articulate how it is different from the existing Core Council for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Questioning Students, it would be reasonable to conclude that each would contribute unique opportunities to campus. If an official, student-run gay-straight alliance existed, the club would have some autonomy with regard to the selection of its leadership, McCormick said. The current Core Council is run by both students and administrators. McCormick said it might also be possible to increase peer-to-peer support within the Core Council instead of creating a gay-straight alliance. This model would offer students significantly more resources than a student club would provide. The University has already made strides on GLBTQ issues, McCormick said. “For all those who want to try and expand inclusion within our community, there’s much to applaud about the University’s efforts,” he said. “So the goal is really not to say that we’re not moving on these issues because the University very much has been moving on these issues.”
By Brad HaireUniversity of GeorgiaTifton, Ga. – The era of oil-driven energy is coming to anend, said Jim Fischer, a senior technical advisor with the U.S. Department of Energy.”The world consumes two barrels of oil for every barrel discovered,” Fischer said during the Georgia Bio-energy Conference at the University of Georgia Tifton Campus Conference Center in Tifton, Ga., Aug. 1–3.The world has been using more oil than it has been producing for the past 20 years, he said. And by the year 2020, the world’s population will have increased its need for energy by 60 percent.”So as we reflect on the energy situation, let’s keep in mind that we’re not at our last drop of oil,” he said. “But we’re getting close.”The United States uses about a quarter of the world’s oil supply but only has about 2 percent of its reserves. The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) nations use 7 percent and have 77 percent of the reserves.Biofuels could provide a way to oil independence, said John Sheehan, an analyst with the U.S. Department of Energy. But gasohol was never proposed as a way of avoiding all fossil fuels, such as oil, coal and natural gas. “It was proposed as a way of reducing oil consumption,” he said.There are ethical questions in regard to using food crops for fuel, he said. There are trade-offs and “no free lunch.”For example, a typical corn ethanol plant uses 6 to 7 gallons of water to create 1 gallon of ethanol, he said.If the United States wanted to replace its transportation fuel needs with biofuel, how much land would it take?Sheehan said it would take a billion acres of switch grass, a plant with many good bioenergy and environmental benefits, given the current state of technology. The United States has only 400 million acres in total farmland now.The only way to reduce that large of a land demand, he said, would be through improving vehicle efficiency and the bioenergy technology process by capturing more useable energy at the end of the process.”It’s very easy to do this technology or any technology the wrong way,” Sheehan said.

Otago Daily Times 10 August 2012Bruce Logan warns about what he sees as the dangers in same-sex marriage.Here in France, like New Zealand, same-sex marriage is presented to a puzzled population under the banner of equality. And who can fight against equality?Well, some French friends put the notion of equality under examination. They say same-sex marriage “n’est pas l’egalite, il s’agit de la liberte”. It’s not about equality; it’s about liberty.Governments who choose to redefine marriage seldom understand what they’re doing. “Il a toute la laideur de la fierte.” It has all the ugliness of pride.The issue is not about equality or the success of any one couple’s marriage. The issue is about the connection between the state and marriage in civil society. Who decides what marriage is and what it’s for?Marriage is neither essentially religious nor a product of tradition. It is not the child of the state.Neither is marriage what Lynne Featherstone, the British Equalities Minister, claims. “Marriage is a right of passage for couples who want to show they are in a committed relationship, for people who want to show they have found love and wish to remain together until death do them part.” Her historical vision is limited; her logic is deficient and her fusion of the Anglican Prayer Book with modern idiom disingenuous.Marriage is the consequence of who we are.We do not make it; it makes us. We are male and female.http://www.odt.co.nz/opinion/opinion/220943/its-about-liberty-not-equality-french-say
