Listen To A Stellar Little Feat Concert Performed On This Day In ’76 [Full-Show Audio]

first_img1976 was a golden year for Little Feat. The iconic classic rockers had some shakeups during their formative years, but by 1976, they had settled into a groove that toed the line between folk rock and New Orleans boogie. After releasing Dixie Chicken (1973) and Feats Don’t Fail Me Now (1974), the band was rocking and rolling in style.While things took a turn in the later 1970s, the band was sitting at the top of the world by May 10th, 1976. On that day, the group headed to the Warner Theatre in Washington, D.C., where their performance was taped by WHFS and broadcast over the radio waves. The show features Little Feat at their finest, jamming out on classics like “Skin It Back,” “Dixie Chicken” and a triple encore of “Sailin’ Shoes,” “Feats Don’t Fail Me Now,” and “Teenage Nervous Breakdown.”So set back the clocks to this day in ’76, and relive the performance, courtesy of Lobster below.Setlist: Little Feat | Warner Theatre | Washington, DC | 5/10/1976Set: Skin It Back, Walkin’ All Night, One Love Stand > Rock and Roll Doctor, Oh Atlanta, On Your Way Down, Romance Dance, Lafayette Railroad > Day Or Night, All That You Dream, Dixie Chicken, Triple Face BoogieEncore: Sailin’ Shoes, Feats Don’t Fail Me Now, Teenage Nervous Breakdown[Originally published 5/10/16]last_img read more

Gov. Wolf: We Must Protect the ACA and Access to Health Care for Women Amid COVID-19 and Supreme Court Vacancy

first_img Healthcare,  Press Release Governor Tom Wolf was joined by Representative Kristine Howard and Senator Tim Kearney to discuss the importance of preserving the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to protect women’s health care, now more than ever amid COVID-19 and the Supreme Court vacancy.Under the ACA, a wide variety of preventive care is available to women free of charge, including annual mammograms and well-woman visits, birth control and breastfeeding support. Additionally, women are protected from being charged more simply for being women, or for becoming pregnant.“My administration has consistently pushed for improvements in women’s health care,” Gov. Wolf said. “Those improvements support the gains in free preventive care and the protections for pre-existing conditions that the ACA provides. That gives women needed control over their own health, but that control – and access to affordable coverage for many Pennsylvanians – is in jeopardy right now.”Also, amid COVID, health care inequities have been magnified and women of color, who have felt those inequities long before the pandemic, have much to lose if the ACA is dismantled or repealed. Health outcomes for women of color are worse than those for white women. They are more likely to be hospitalized due to asthma, diabetes, and COPD compared to white women, and more likely to give birth to a stillborn baby than white women. In 2018, black women were five times more likely to be living with chronic Hepatitis B compared to white women.The Wolf Administration has steadfastly worked to improve access to quality health care and health care coverage for all women, despite efforts by the federal government to undermine women’s rights to health care.When a group of Republican Attorneys General brought a suit challenging the constitutionality of the ACA, President Trump made the highly unusual decision to have the Department of Justice fight to invalidate a federal law. To have the federal government seek to deprive Americans of health care coverage is deeply concerning at any time, but especially in the midst of a pandemic.“A radical change to the United States Supreme Court could lead to the end of the Affordable Care Act and the legal precedent of Roe v. Wade,” said Rep. Howard. “We have a responsibility to protect the thousands of Pennsylvanians who would lose their health care and the women who would lose their right to make their own choices in matters of reproductive health.”“The Trump Administration is in federal court trying to overturn the Affordable Care Act and rip away health coverage from millions of people,” Sen. Kearney said. “More than 5 million people in Pennsylvania who have pre-existing conditions will see their premiums increase dramatically or lose their coverage altogether. Especially during a global pandemic, we should be strengthening the ACA to reduce costs and expand coverage. We need to fight back because lives hang in the balance.”The governor was also joined by Kathryn Kolbert, a reproductive rights attorney who argued Planned Parenthood v. Casey, the 1992 Supreme Court case widely credited with saving Roe v. Wade.“The confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court will place in jeopardy both the Affordable Care Act and Roe v. Wade, denying millions of American women access to safe and affordable health care,” said Kolbert. “Senator Toomey, the women of Pennsylvania will remember if you forsake women’s health in this political power grab. Let the voters decide whether President Trump or President Biden will select the next Supreme Court Justice.”“All women deserve more access to better health care, not more problems created by politicians,” said Gov. Wolf. “There is no role for government to step between a woman and her doctor for any health care decision. I will continue to do everything in my power to ensure that Pennsylvania women retain access to affordable, quality health care.” SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Gov.

Rosneft keen on expanding Mozambique portfolio, CEO Sechin says

first_imgRussian oil and gas giant Rosneft is looking at potentially expanding its foothold in gas-rich Mozambique.The company’s representatives have this week signed cooperation agreements with Mozambique’s National Petroleum Institute and National Hydrocarbon Company, during the official visit the President of Mozambique Filipe Nyusi to Russia.According to Rosneft, the cooperation agreement was signed by Chief Executive Officer of Rosneft Oil Company Igor Sechin and Chairman of INP Carlos Zacarias.Furthermore, Rosneft has signed a Memorandum on Expansion of cooperation in Mozambique with the National Hydrocarbon Company (Empresa Nacional de Hidrocarbonetos, ENH).  The document was signed by Igor Sechin and Chief Executive Officer of ENH Omar Mitha.The document exchange ceremony was held in the presence of President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin and President of Mozambique Filipe Jacinto Nyusi.According to Rosneft, Rosneft will be granted the right to study available geological data on a number of onshore and offshore blocks in Mozambique in order to examine their potential; and the opportunity to enter the projects on those blocks in the future.Chief Executive Officer of Rosneft Igor Sechin noted: “Mozambique is one of the perspective areas of the Rosneft’s international business. We are keen on further expanding the project portfolio in the country. I sincerely hope that the agreements signed today will contribute to that.”In late 2015, Rosneft and ExxonMobil were declared winners for three blocks in the fifth license round organized by INP. Rosneft and ExxonMobil were awarded three license areas: A5-B in the Angoche Basin, and Z5-C and Z5-D in the Zambezi Delta. In October 2018, the consortium where Rosneft holds 20% signed concession agreements for the exploration and production of hydrocarbons on the three areas with the Government of Mozambique, and the companies started exploration works.The year 2019 has been fruitful when it comes to development of gas resources found offshore Mozambique.The government of Mozambique in May approved the development plan for the Rovuma LNG project led by Exxon and Eni. Two liquefied natural gas trains are planned with a combined annual capacity of over 15 million tons.LNG production from the project is expected to begin in 2024.Also, U.S. oil and gas firm Anadarko in June made a final investment decision for the development of Mozambique’s Offshore Area 1 via the $20 billion Area 1 Mozambique LNG project.This will be Mozambique’s first onshore LNG development, initially consisting of two LNG trains with a total nameplate capacity of 12.88 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) to support the development of the Golfinho/Atum fields located entirely within Offshore Area 1.As Offshore Energy Today previously reported, the project is expected to be taken over by France’s Total.Anadarko has recently been acquired by Oxy who agreed to sell Anadarko’s  Africa assets – including the Mozambique LNG project – to France’s Total in an $8.8 billion deal.Offshore Energy Today StaffSpotted a typo?
