Huffington Post - about 1 year
By: Lee Breslouer Credit: Shuttershock/Jennifer Bui/Thrillist Contrary to popular belief, LinkedIn isn't a company that exists to fill your spam folder with "invitations to connect" with people you barely know.

Clean water for Typhoon Haiyan victims
CNN - over 3 years
I am working here with Jon Rose, founder of Waves for Water, a NGO focused on providing clean water (, for the past week out of Cebu to try to reach affected areas and distribute portable water filtration systems to those in need. Access and logistics are some of the biggest problems facing us and other relief groups here in the Philippines due to the devastation to infrastructure and roads and the geographic scale of the disaster. We have been focusing on pockets that are not getting the same level of relief that the epicenter of Tacloban has been getting from the larger NGO’s and military. With close cooperation with the local chapter of JCI (Junior Chamber International) we have distributed close to 300 filter systems with the capacity to provide clean water to up to 30,000 people to the communities of Bogo, Medellin, and Daanbantayan in Northern Cebu, and Bantayan Island. The devastation of homes, property, infrastructure and agriculture that we’ve seen is bes ...

Pagham can worship at Temple again
Bognor Regis Observer - over 4 years
Pagham returned to winning ways in Sussex League division one with a goal in each half seeing off resilient Lancing 2-1. Martin Gander’s visitors held sway in awful conditions for most of the first half, with their opening goal in the first minute direct from a free-kick. Pagham gradually edged their way back in, Joe Briggs almost equalising on the quarter-hour. Dan Turner was a handful for the visitors, and more than once he created useful openings for the Lancers. The Lions equaliser also came from a free-kick, James Ford heading home on 25 minutes. Howard Neighbour tested Joel Harding in Lancing’s goal, while Turner fed Richard Hudson for the away side only for his looping shot to go well wide of the target. James Temple hit the Lancing bar from long range and the final chance of the half fell to Ash Harper, who was unable to score. At half-time the referee had to be replaced, with Lions stalwart Wes Hallett taking over as an assistant referee for the second half. The ...

FA CUP: Lions roar through after penalties in replay
Bognor Regis Observer - over 4 years
THE Lions roared onto an FA Cup clash with Carshalton Athletic as James Temple’s penalty in a shoot-out settled a replay with Lordswood that had everything. After the two sides had played out a 0-0 stalemate on Saturday, Tuesday’s replay at Nyewood Lane saw the home side start much the better team although penalties were needed after it finished 1-1 after extra-time. Howard Neighbour shot just wide and Joe Briggs also had a strike at goal, but his belter rebounded out to safety early on. Andy Smallpiece was forced to race from his area early on to clear a Lordswood chance, whilst Mark Murison shot across Pagham’s goal. Drama in the 11th minute saw Lordswood awarded a penalty, up-stepped Dimmock, but Andy Smallpiece did well to save a stinging spot-kick. Murison shot over the bar, whilst Craig Harvey also had an opening for Lordswood as the visitors came more into the match. Neighbour headed just over as the Lions stepped up a gear, having a strike cleared off Lordswood’s l ...

Grains rally as U.S. slashes corn crop on drought
Financial Post - over 4 years
The worst drought in a quarter century will slash corn yields across the U.S. Midwest by much more than most analysts had expected, the government said on Wednesday in a report that reignited a record rally in grain prices. The U.S. Department of Agriculture said the crop will average just 146.0 bushels an acre, down 20 bushels from its June estimate. As a result, USDA reduced its forecast for corn ending stocks by 37 percent from last month, partly offset by lower exports and less ethanol usage. The surprisingly deep cut to the yield outlook jolted traders, who had expected the USDA to take a more conservative approach to adjusting its outlook. The reduction in ending stocks was deeper than the 32 percent cut expected by analysts. Corn on the Chicago Board of Trade soared after the release of the report, with the December contract initially surged by 23 cents and settling to a 15-cent, or 2 percent, gain at $7.76 a bushel gain at mid-morning. Prices have risen 34 percent in ...

USDA predicts record corn yields, prices between $4.20 and $5
Des Moines Register - almost 5 years
The U.S. Department of Agriculture Thursday said that the corn surplus in the U.S. would double  to almost 1.9 billion bushels after the 2012 corn crop is harvested, dropping corn prices to as low as $4.20 per bushel, a figure $2 per bushel below the average price for corn in 2011. The reaction by traders was negative, but not panicked, as the December contract for corn opened down 9 cents per bushel to $5.07 on the Chicago Board of Trade. The December contract traded as high as $6.60 late last year on worries about dry conditions in Iowa, but has fallen as rains eased drought concerns and worries have arisen since about the return of big surpluses. The USDA report issued before the market opened said “season-average farm (corn) price is projected at $4.20 to $5.00 per bushel, down sharply from the 2011/12 record projected at $5.95 to $6.25 per bushel.” Such a figure, applied to expected Iowa production of 2.5 billion bushels or better, would shave up to $5 ...

Pagham see off Sidley for sixth-place finish
Chichester Observer - almost 5 years
PAGHAM completed their season and a league double over Sidley with a resounding 3-0 win at a windswept Nyetimber Lane to finish sixth in division one of the Sussex League. Twice in the first few minutes Joe Briggs looked to add to his tally but was denied by Josh Willis in Sidley’s goal. Scott Murfin shot over and Sidley’s Cruickshank had to hack the ball off the line. Murfin then struck a shot against the bar in a breathless opening to the tussle. As the Lions pressed forward, only the heroics of Willis kept it goalless. Joe Booker saw a golden chance drift wide while a shot from the returning James Temple was scrambled off Sidley’s line. On 26 minutes keeper Willis went down in his own area. After lengthy treatment, he was able to continue. But the relief for Sidley wasn’t to last long as Pagham took the lead, Scott Murfin with his 24th league goal after great approach work by Joe Briggs. Murfin followed that with a spectacular shot on the turn which almost beat Willis. ...

Lions lanced by Lancing - but seconds win it for Luke
Midhurst And Petworth Observer - almost 5 years
Pagham and their reserves were both involved in goal-fests. The first team travelled to Lancing for a Sussex League division-one clash hoping to avenge the 1-0 defeat inflicted on them earlier in the season. With much at stake for the Lancers, the Lions raced into a 2-0 lead with Joe Briggs’ double giving the visitors a great start by the 20th minute. Charlie Walker gave the home side hope, adding a goal late into first-half time added on. Within nine minutes of the restart, Titus Patterson had equalised for the Lancers. Two minutes after that, Charlie Walker scored again and the Lions began to wobble. Walker left it until the 72nd minute to score his third, while Paterson finished off the rout with three minutes left. Pagham end their league campaign at home to Sidley this week hoping to secure a fourth-place finish. Back at Nyetimber Lane, the game that was rumoured to be Luke Cooper’s last in charge of the Lions’ reserve side ended with a resounding win. Ryan Champion ...

Honours even in Pagham and Selsey’s Easter battle
Bognor Regis Observer - almost 5 years
Honours were even at Nyetimber Lane as the traditional Sussex League division-one Easter fixture between Pagham and Selsey was settled by two first-half goals. The game began with a stinging shot from Selsey’s Max Thoms that James Binfield did well to hold on to. Not so lucky was Selsey keeper Sam Joyce who completely misjudged Joe Booker’s long-range shot for Pagham’s opener on five minutes. He redeemed himself shortly afterwards as a right-sided shot was well stopped. Ryan Cox made his mark for Selsey on his return to the Lane with a robust tackle on Lewis Hyde that gained a yellow card. Scott Murfin hit the side netting for Pagham while a free-kick from Selsey’s Callum Britton had to be scrambled away. On 22 minutes Toby Pointing equalised for Selsey. Pointing tried again a couple of minutes later, his shot drifting wide. A low shot from Scott Murfin was held by Joyce, while Britton also gained a booking. Ben Buckland had to be on his toes when hacking the ball away from ...

USDA forecasts tightened soybean supplies
Des Moines Register - almost 5 years
Iowa is the nation's largest producer of soybeans The U.S. Department of Agriculture said Tuesday that world and domestic supplies of soybeans will be tighter this year due to short crops in Brazil and more acres devoted to corn in the U.S. The USDA also declined to change earlier forecasts of a big corn crop and enlarged supplies, opening the door to price decreases for corn should U.S. production return to record levels this year. In its monthly world supply and demand report, the USDA said “U.S. soybean ending stocks are projected at 250 million bushels, down 25 million from last month.” On prices, the USDA said “soybean and soybean product prices are all projected higher this month. The U.S. season average soybean price range is projected at $12.00 to $12.50 per bushel compared with $11.40 to $12.60 last month.” Soybean prices have climbed almost 25 percent since the beginning of this year on reports of drought and heat problems with the summer crop ...

Soybeans open big
Des Moines Register - almost 5 years
Soybeans are up 19 cents per bushel in the first 90 minutes of trading on the Chicago Board of Trade Monday, buoyed by more news of short soybean crops in South America and China’s apparent need for more imports and tight U.S. supplies. Soybeans for May delivery reached $13.84 per bushel and the contract for November delivery, which would cover the crop to be planted this spring, traded up 14 cents per bushel to $13.36. Des Moines Commodity trader Don Roose of US Commodities noted reports of tight domestic stocks and shorter-than-expected South American crops and said “the market is telling farmers the world will need soybeans, and they’ll need them right away after harvest.” The Board of Trade said in a morning report that “China’s official state grain trader overnight said it expects China’s soybean imports this marketing year to rise to 55 million metric tons to 58 MMT, up from 52.34 MMT last year.” China has reemerged as a major buyer of soybeans at a t ...

  • 1986
    Age 35
    In 1986, he moved to Berlin to more fully realise his ongoing project, The Relative Violin, which is the development of a total artform based around the one instrument.
    More Details Hide Details This prompted innovation in the fields of new instrument design (over 20 deconstructed violin instruments including the legendary Double Piston Triple-neck Wheeling Violin), in environmental performance (such as bowing fences in the Australian outback), in new instrumental techniques (tested sometimes in uninterrupted marathon concerts of up to twelve hours), and in both analogue (built into the violins themselves) and interactive electronics. His alternative, personal, and revised history for the violin used the mediums of radio (over 30 major international productions for radio stations like ABC, BBC, WDR, SR, BR, Radio France, RAI, ORF, and SFB), live-performance film (In the 1980s, he integrated Super 8 into his worldwide performances.), video, and television (ZDF). In the area of interactive electronics, his work is considered exemplary, having pioneered the use of the MIDI bow in the Hyperstring project in the 1980s in conjunction with the Steim Institute, Amsterdam, and with whom he continues to collaborate, often in interactive projects involving sport, games, or the environment. Another phenomena since 1980 is the violin-playing dynasty known as "The Rosenbergs," part quasi-biographical appendage and part surrealist satire.
