I am sad that shortly I will be leaving the crew, they have supported me exceptionally well. I am glad to be home though but more importantly to get the crew home,” he said.During his time as Commander, the submarine sailed over 35,000 nautical miles and exercised with American, New Zealand, Canadian and Malaysian units.The crew of Dechaineux will now spend Christmas with their families before returning to sea in 2017.

Newport-based family business Brace’s Bakery has unveiled a brand revamp.The changes include baking its Luxury bread range in a tall tin instead of a square one – a first for the company. Recipe enhancements have been made to keep the bread softer for longer, and the number of slices in the loaves increased by one.Brace’s will also continue to make its long loaf for those who prefer a square slice.Ian Salisbury of Salisbury Associates, which has worked closely with director Jonathan Brace on the rebrand, said the brief for the new design was to analyse the historical evolutions the brand had adopted and develop branding that encompassed both the new and the old.“The intention of the new design is to provide a sense of comfort, reassurance, quality and choice to both the loyal and expanding consumer base that welcome the value of an independent family bakery,” said Salisbury.“The design envelops the product with elegant lines and colours that clearly denote product differentiation, oozing quality through design that reflects the care and attention with which the product has been made.”Brace’s said more changes would be made to its product portfolio in the next six months.
Today, STS9 announced a new collaboration with Boulder, Colorado-based fine cannabis-extract producer Green Dot Labs. Taking the name from STS9’s funky track “Gobnugget”, Green Dot Lab’s first-ever live resin pen, the Gobnugget Pen Limited Release, drops tomorrow at select Colorado dispensaries on Thursday, January 26th. The pen is a sneak peek at Green Dot Lab’s long-awaited and upcoming Black Label live resin pen line, which officially drops in March of this year.As told by a press release, the 500mg cartridge pen “combines two intense, terpene-rich Black Label varietals: Citradelic Sunset (Ghost Train Haze x Mandarin Sunset) and Bottlewash (Wookie x OZ Kush). Together they create a psychedelic flavor profile with vivid, unexpected notes of lavender, lime, and grape soda. The creative collaboration continues with a special edition, black-and-gold box that echoes band’s extraterrestrial aesthetic and was designed with their guidance.”Accompanying the limited 1000-pen release of the Gobnugget Pen collaboration, STS9 and Green Dot Labs will be running a special Golden Ticket Giveaway, allowing fans the opportunity to win tickets to STS9’s local winter tour shows in Telluride (Jan. 31) and Aspen (Feb. 1-3) and the exclusive “Mission Control Pack.” Furthermore, people who purchase pens will also get a free download of a show from the tour plus donate a portion of the sale to benefit the Boulder-based nonprofit, Conscious Alliance.As Green Dot Labs founder Dave Malone said in a press release, “STS9 is one of our favorite bands. We’re constantly inspired by their creative exploration, so for our second collab we decided to push the boundaries and do something totally new—our first ever pen.”In turn, STS9 percussionist Jeffree Lerner had this to say about the new pen, “We are so excited about our latest collaboration with Green Dot Labs who have designed a strain called “Gobnugget” for us…this one is gonna be special. It’s a live resin pen and you will be able to find it in Denver, Boulder, Aspen, and Durango for our Winter Tour dates in Colorado. Look forward to seeing you at all the shows…”[Photo: Christian Stewart]
Ten years ago, John McGreevy made the transition from chair of the department of history to dean of the College of Arts and Letters.The transition made him nervous, he said — he would henceforth be responsible for Notre Dame’s oldest academic college and serve as the main voice for what is now 500 faculty members, 3,000 undergraduates and over 1,000 graduate students.“[I was] wondering if I could succeed and flourish in the role,” McGreevy said. “Because you are speaking in front of a lot of different audiences, you are playing a lot of different roles [and] you are making decisions. You can only grow used to that over time.”McGreevy occupied the post for a decade. In February of this year, the University announced McGreevy’s decision to end his tenure as dean. His successor will be department of sociology chair Sarah Mustillo.“It’s been a great experience,” McGreevy said. “I wasn’t a person who was chomping at the bit to become dean. I was happy to do it if asked. But I have found it a very rewarding job.”Despite the challenges that came about through managing time, “a lot of different people” and certain personnel issues and disputes, McGreevy said he liked the day-to-day aspects of the job the most.“I feel lucky, honestly, to have met the people that I have met in the job and to just see how deeply students and faculty and benefactors and supporters and parents and top administrators, how deeply they love Notre Dame and how hard they are working to advance the University,” he said. “I wish every faculty member could see that because it is a neat thing to see.”McGreevy began his Notre Dame story in 1982 as an undergraduate student. After graduating in 1986 and teaching elsewhere, he joined the University faculty in 1997 and served as chair of the history department for six years and was a history professor before being asked to become dean.“I took the job because I thought maybe I could make a difference in the role,” he said. “It is a role with a lot of influence at Notre Dame in terms of hiring and setting priorities. … You do that in collaboration, of course, with the faculty and with your colleagues and administration. And I think that’s proven to be the case — it’s been satisfying in that way.”As dean, McGreevy said his responsibilities included raising money to support the college’s priorities, determining the allocation of resources and communicating with the administration, the departmental chairs and the University’s other colleges while advancing the educational mission of the College of Arts and Letters. “I came in with some goals in mind but … it took a little bit of time to come up with everything,” he said. “You are changing all of the time, too. Things happen that you don’t anticipate.”In addition to increasing the number of faculty within the college, McGreevy said changes during his time as dean include making collaborative programs with other colleges on-campus, expanding departmental space with three new buildings and raising money to assist graduate students.Another one of his most significant contributions to the college was an ambition he had in mind as soon as he took on the role as dean — increasing the level of interest in student theses.“We are really proud of the fact that over 40 percent of our students do a senior thesis now and that’s up from nine percent when we started 10 years ago,” he said. “I think our departments have advanced, probably the most dramatic advance has been in economics because it was really quite small.”Getting stronger students who were more interested in undergraduate research helped the college achieve that student thesis increase, McGreevy said.“I think it has just been a happy marriage of more ambitious and talented undergraduate helping faculty see that this could be one of their most rewarding kinds of teaching that you do, which I believe to be the case, and putting that together,” he said.McGreevy said he feels confident Mustillo — who will take over the position July 1 — will not need much advice from him regarding the position.“We are at a place where students are eager to come to, a place that has resources and a place where you really can do things,” he said. “And I think that’s what makes this dean’s job really attractive and I think I have said that to my successor, Sarah Mustillo — that it’s really a job where we can do interesting things.”Though July will mark the end of McGreevy’s time as College of Arts and Letters dean, this isn’t the end of his career at Notre Dame; he said he plans to spend the next year researching and writing about global Catholicism before rejoining the faculty as a teacher and advisor.“Seeing how people love Notre Dame — it’s very striking,” McGreevy said. “And I have no regrets whatsoever having done it. I think I will be a better faculty person because I’ve done it. … You see how strong some of our faculty are and what they do to advance their careers and advance their disciplines and it makes you want to be a little bit like them.”Tags: College of Arts and Letters, dean, John McGreevy, Sarah Mustillo
Michael Park Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill’s most popular collaboration, The Threepenny Opera is based on John Gay’s The Beggar’s Opera. The show centers on the scoundrel Macheath and his criminal exploits in 19th century London. In the tuner, Macheath, or Mack the Knife as he is known, marries the impressionable and innocent Polly Peachum, much to the displeasure of her father and mother. Throughout his marriage, and a series of arrests, he maintains a strong relationship with his mistress, Pirate Jenny.

At the end of August, 2009, over 80,000 Vermonters were participating in 3SquaresVT (formerly Food Stamps). That is more than 1 in 8 Vermonters. Collectively, this brought in about 10 million Federal dollars to Vermont’s grocery stores and farmers’ markets in the month of August. Angela Smith-Dieng, Senior 3SquaresVT/Food Stamp Nutrition Program & Policy Specialist at the Vermont Campaign to End Childhood Hunger says, “A year ago, in August 2008 there were 57,672 Vermonters receiving 3SquaresVT benefits. Participation has increased by 40 percent in the past year. We believe this is due to the downturn in the economy and the fact that more Vermonters are struggling to put food on the table as well as the expansion of eligibility that began in January. More Vermonters than ever now qualify and there is no limit on the number of Vermonters who can participate.”About the Vermont Campaign to End Childhood Hunger: The Vermont Campaign to End Childhood Hunger is a statewide nonprofit organization that works with state agencies and community groups to develop sustainable hunger solutions. Since 1993 the Campaign’s outreach programs have substantially enhanced Vermont’s nutrition safety net and increased access to nutritious foods. www.vtnohunger.org(link is external).

FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Renew Economy:Australia has around seven gigawatts of battery storage projects at various stages in the development pipeline, a new report has estimated, nearly 1GW of which is on track to be delivered by 2024.Projections from Cornwall Insight Australia published on Thursday suggest there is currently just over 900MW-worth of committed or significantly progressed big battery projects being developed around the country with another 6GW-plus either proposed or in planning.Last month, the biggest big battery in Australia, the largest in the southern hemisphere was unveiled by the Victoria government, Tesla and developer Neoen, marking just the latest of more than a dozen big battery projects to be formally announced in the last few months, with many more in the pipeline.Still, as the Cornwall Insight analysis points out, 7GW of battery storage is rather a lot – and certainly far more than forecast by the Australian Energy Market Operator. (And it does not include the proposed 20GWh battery to go with the Sun Cable project in the Northern Territory.“Even if we only assume that 10% of the projected storage will make it to completed projects, that is still a total of ~1.5GW of battery storage that we can expect by 2024 – more than 13x AEMO’s forecast in the Integrated System Plan,” said principal consultant, Ben Cerini.The report finds that the state with the largest MW of proposed battery projects is Victoria, with more than 4GW in the planning and development pipeline – an amount that represents nearly half (more than 40%) of the state’s recent peak demand. New South Wales, meanwhile, has a smaller 1.3GW in the pipeline, but Cornwall notes that this is “well on the way” to the 2.3GW identified in the state government’s NSW Roadmap.[Sophie Vorrath]More: Big battery pipeline nudges 7GW in Australia, as roles for storage multiply Battery storage project queue in Australia climbs to almost 7GW
