Vectren Reminds Customers to Call Before You Digby Natalie HeddeEvansville, Ind. – In an effort to remind residents to dial 8-1-1 before digging, Aug. 11 has been designated National Call Before You Dig awareness day. Not only does it ensure the safety of all involved, but it is the law to inform local utility companies regarding the intent to dig at least two full days prior by calling the national 811 free service. After telling the 811 operator where the digging will take place and the type of work involved, the approximate location of buried lines, pipes and cables will be marked.Throughout 2015, Vectren Energy Delivery (Vectren) responded to roughly 1,000 damages to underground lines and pipes. Striking a single line can cause injury, repair costs, fines and inconvenient outages. Installing a mailbox, building a deck, planting a tree and laying a patio are all examples of digging projects that need a call to 811 before starting.The depth of utility lines can vary for a number of reasons, such as erosion, previous digging projects, and uneven surfaces. Utility lines need to be properly marked because even when digging only a few inches, the risk of striking an underground utility line still exists.“Calling 811 is easy, free and can ultimately save a life,” said Mike Roeder, Vectren’s vice president of government affairs and president of Vectren-North. “Failure to call before digging results in more than 60,000 unintentional hits annually across the U.S. We hope by educating our customers, together we can keep one another safe while driving that statistic down.”For more details, visit www.vectren.com or www.Indiana811.org.About VectrenVectren Corporation (NYSE: VVC) is an energy holding company headquartered in Evansville, Ind.

Greggs is investing £1m in an integrated marketing campaign to promote its breakfast offering.The extensive ‘Taste Rescue’ campaign, launched this week, will be pushed through a mix of advertising, social media, marketing stunts and PR. These include the installation of sensory advertising boards at bus stops in London, Manchester and Glasgow, which emit fresh coffee and bacon roll smells to passers-by.In addition, seven shops nationwide will receive a full makeover and become Greggs ‘Taste Rescue Centres’, incorporating the campaign’s black-and-yellow colour scheme throughout the chosen shops, on point-of-sale and on staff uniforms.A Greggs spokesperson said: “As a business, we know we have a strong breakfast offering in terms of taste and value, but we are committed to encouraging new customers to sample and change their perceptions of what’s on offer. Equally, it’s important for us to engage our existing customers and inspire them to try the whole breakfast range, which is more varied than consumers may perceive.“Our campaign will appeal directly to the public’s taste buds, engaging them in activity which aims to question what really satisfies them when it comes to breakfast and coffee.”The campaign is supported online with a dedicated website, www.tasterescuecentre.co.uk, featuring character Professor Gregg T Bud. The site lists Greggs’ breakfast items, in addition to information on events hosted up and down the country. A new mobile app has also been developed, which features videos and a store locator, as well as a tasteometer tongue scanner, allowing users to share results via social media channels.Consumers will also have the opportunity to win a breakfast from Greggs for a whole year, alongside an additional competition for individuals to win one of five breakfasts for their workplace.Greggs has used media agencies Gratterpalm, Steel, Euro RSCG and Carat to devise the ‘Taste Rescue’ campaign.
On Thursday, January 24, The Wood Brothers crossed another historic venue off of their “to-play” list. Since reopening in 2011, The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY (also found on the National Register of Historic Landmarks) has regained its status as one of the Empire State’s most popular venues. While the band has left their mark on rooms from Buffalo to Brooklyn and all the spaces in between, January 2019 would be the first time they touched down at Jerry Garcia’s beloved Westchester digs.Thursday night’s gig was so significant to the trio that they offered a free live stream for fans across the country unable to attend. Priscilla Renea opened the show backed by her two-piece eclectic bandmates and thrilled the audience by singing some of her co-written worldwide hits. After meeting The Wood Brothers in Nashville while recording her debut solo album, Coloured, the boys asked her to join them on tour. Penning tunes popularized by Ke$ha, Rhianna, Mariah Carey and Fifth Harmony is a feat of its own, but after hearing her vocal range and seeing her stage presence, it is clear that there is more to Priscilla’s impressive skill set than making others famous. While already well-known to a southern audience, this was surely far from the last time fans will hear her name in the Northeast.The headlining neo-folk act showed up on stage around 9:30 p.m. and kicked off their thirsty Thursday show with “Stumbled In”. Not usually known for on-screen appearances, The Wood Brothers did not seem as loose as usual and instead stuck with a straightforward approach throughout most of the performance. Not veering into the realm of improvisation does have its benefits, however, as they played with clarity and focus from start to finish, tackling songs that encompassed their entire 14-year career.“This Is It” was the first of several songs throughout the setlist that can be found on the Grammy-nominated 2018 album, One Drop of Truth, which Oliver Wood calls, “The freest album we’ve done.” Smoke Ring Halo’s “Mary Anna” took the third spot in the set and was played with a faster tempo than usual—getting both the streaming audience and Capitol Theatre crowd moving. One reason fans continue flocking to Wood Brothers’ shows year after year is that the band likes to keep things fresh, for themselves and their audience. While the songs may never stretch to jam band levels of improvisation, the structures and approach to originals and covers alike are frequently modified from tour to tour. After Oliver gave a shout out to the opening act, “Pay Attention” was softly woven into the set. “Sky High” and “One Drop of Truth” were played back-to-back, and showed the range of roots featured of the newest album—the first with a southern-fried twang and the next with classic Americana notes. You can watch pro-shot video of the first few songs from the performance below via The Relix Channel.The Wood Brothers – The Capitol Theatre – 1/24/19After band intros, the three-piece band delicately played “Chocolate On My Tongue”, one of the first neo-folk original tunes that got them on the map in the mid-2000s. Since the debut of 2006’s Ways Not to Lose, Oliver and Chris Wood added the vital Jano Rix, who adds flavor to every studio and live recipe. On “Chocolate On My Tongue”, his backbeat drumming added an unexpected hip-hop spice to the slow-moving fan-favorite. The trio transitioned right into a high-energy “Trouble In Mind” which can be heard at a slower, more traditional tempo on the Live at the Barn recording. Once again showing their respect for the history of music, “Trouble In Mind” dates back to the 19th century and has been recorded by a myriad of artists from various genres long before Chris Wood ever picked up a bass.Keeping their eyes on the crowd and not the cameras, the band paired two Paradise (2015) originals together with “Raindrop” and “Snake Eyes”. Chris added heavy effects to the electric bass and took control as Oliver changed guitars midway through the latter. After some rocking Wood Brothers, the crew brought out their old-timey single microphone for the section of the show they refer to as, “O Wood Brother, Where Art Thou?” The rowdy members of the audience were shushed by Chris and the trio peacefully harmonized on “The Muse”. To continue their theme of pairing up songs from the same album, the band invited Priscilla back onstage for The Muse (2013) track “Sing About It”. Priscilla’s deep and soulful vocals got the crowd howling over the quietly-played tune and it was clear to even The Wood Brothers that she had stolen the spotlight during her guest appearance with them.Jano strapped on his personally invented instrument, the shuitar, for a hot version of “When I Was Young”. Although the band continues to stick to the one-set format, as soon as their traditional microphone gets put away, they tend to rage with a “second-set” renewed energy. “Where My Baby Might Be” was played with a True Detective title track feel as Chris delivered a super dank bass line that eerily bounced off the walls of The Cap. Aware of the crowd’s excitement, Chris rambunctiously hopped on Jano’s drum kit platform to rock out with his (un-blood-related) brother. Next up, Oliver cooled things down with “Postcards From Hell” and dedicated to the track to all the artists out there. In recent performances, “Honey Jar” has found the band running around stage like AC/DC, but in order to stay on-screen friendly, Oliver remained stationary for the set-closing rendition.The band chose the Jimmy Reed cover of “Big Boss Man” as the first half of the encore before launching into arguably their most iconic tune, “Luckiest Man.” An impressive aspect of the encore was Jano’s incredibly versatile playing. It is unclear if he is the lucky one to have such a talented family duo in his band or if they are lucky to have such a diverse one-man-band in theirs. At certain points during the cover and the original classic, it sounded like there were at least four artists on stage as Jano softly played keyboard with one hand and banged on the drums with the other. One thing cannot be denied—as the popularity of The Wood Brothers continues to grow, so does their talent.The Wood Brothers tour dates are currently scheduled nationwide through August. For a full list of upcoming dates, head to the band’s website.

One of the easiest and most effective ways of enhancing the performance of your bike and prolonging its life on the road or trail is a regular, thorough cleaning. Failing to do so can result in poor shifting, a rusty chain, mud caked cassettes, and a whole host of other issues.But it’s a little more difficult than simply pulling out the garden and hose and giving the old steed a good spray. Whether it’s making sure that your chain is thoroughly degreased and subsequently re-lubricated or simply dropping the back wheel in order to achieve complete cleanliness of your entire drivetrain, there’s a little bit of technical know-how involved in a successful bike cleaning.Luckily, the good folks are Park Tool are here to help. As a matter of fact, I recently stumbled upon loads of great video content on bike maintenance on the Park Tool website that I would highly recommend checking out. But before you do that, check out this short video on bike cleaning and never let your ride become a mud receptacle again.A Few Essential Tools for a Basic Bike Cleaning Related:
By Nelza Oliveira/Diálogo January 17, 2019 The Brazilian Navy is a step closer to having a nuclear-powered submarine. The Riachuelo, the first of four conventional submarines from the Submarine Development Program (PROSUB, in Portuguese), was launched into sea on December 14, 2018. In addition to conventional submarines, a nuclear-powered submarine is also in the works. The Riachuelo started a two-year port trial, during which it will be evaluated for leakage, buoyancy, and balance, including at sea. It will then be incorporated into the Submarine Force, under the Brazilian Navy Fleet Command, which plans naval and air operations. “Brazil, as a peaceful country, doesn’t build its ships as a threat to anyone or to disturb the tranquility of national waters, but rather because a country with a coastline of more than 7,000 kilometers needs certain resources to defend its sovereignty and rich marine biodiversity,” said then Brazilian President Michel Temer at the launching ceremony. “Today’s ceremony [December 14, 2018] is the most recent accomplishment of a government project. None of this would have been possible without planning, a sense of continuity, or long-term vision.” PROSUB was launched to protect the 3.5-million square km offshore area known as the Blue Amazon—a region filled with Brazilian mineral and oil reserves—and to safeguard the sovereignty of the country’s coastline. Ninety five percent of exports and imports go through Brazilian waters, which also contain about 90 percent of the country’s oil. Mega structure PROSUB’s 2008 launch was followed by the construction of the Naval Complex, a mega structure in which the four conventional submarines and the first Brazilian nuclear-powered submarine are being built simultaneously. The complex, based in Itaguaí city, about 70 km from Rio de Janeiro, contains the required infrastructure to operate and maintain both models. The Naval Complex, among the most modern in the Southern Hemisphere, has a built-in metal structure manufacturing unit, construction and maintenance shipyards—the Naval Base—as well as additional structures and shops. The construction is located a few meters away from the existing facilities of Nuclebrás Equipamentos Pesados company, which house the largest metal press in Latin America. A technology transfer agreement between Brazil and France made PROSUB’s development possible. France agreed to transfer technology to Brazil and train Brazilian personnel in submarine planning and construction. There is no knowledge exchange, however, in the nuclear sector. The Navy Nuclear Program at the Brazilian Navy’s Technological Center in São Paulo develops all PROSUB’s nuclear technology. Only six countries in the world can build and operate nuclear-powered submarines. “The cornerstone for the Brazilian multipurpose reactor was laid last June , for a reactor that will enable the country to achieve its radioisotope independency. We have one of the world’s largest uranium reserves, we own the nuclear technology, and we can use it across various segments to benefit our society; [we may also apply it] for many other purposes, such as agriculture, etc.,” said Brazilian Navy Admiral Bento Costa Lima Leite de Albuquerque Júnior, then general director of the Brazilian Navy’s nuclear and technological development. PROSUB prioritized the purchase of components made in Brazil to strengthen the national defense industry. The total cost of the program is estimated at $9.5 billion, with $4.6 billion already invested. After Riachuelo, it is estimated that one submarine will be launched at sea each year: the Humaitá in 2020, the Tonelero in 2021, and the Angostura in 2022. The Álvaro Alberto nuclear-propulsion submarine is set to launch in 2029. The Riachuelo The new submarines are a modified version of the diesel-electric Scorpène models used in France. The Riachuelo and similar versions have a 35-crew-member capacity, autonomy of more than 70 days at sea, and can reach speeds of more than 20 miles per hour and navigate at 300 meters deep. The Riachuelo is 75 m long, equivalent to a four-story building, and weighs 1,870 tons. The new submarine has strong firepower, with 533 mm torpedo launchers, anti-ship missiles and devices to mine enemy areas, destroy ships, contain, limit, or delay transit. During the two-year trials and sea evaluations, the submarine will have to navigate at maximum speed for several hours, cover large distances, emerge at an acute vertical angle, and submerge under critical conditions. The Riachuelo will undergo battle simulations and virtual combat sieges. It will have to fire all arms and rehearse exit and rescue of combat diver teams. There will also be exercises such as fire combat, shipwreck, and stealth intelligence actions. The defense and attack simulations will be part of crew members’ routine. The submarine will test diving safety limits, among others. Only then the Riachuelo will be able to complete its mission and protect the country’s oceanic waters. Riachuelo will join the Brazilian Navy’s fleet of five submarines: Tupi, Tamoio, Timbira, Tapajó and Tikuna.
Indonesia’s largest fuel retailer has lowered the price of its Pertamax and Pertamax Turbo gasoline brands for the second time this year to promote the consumption of nonsubsidized fuels.State-owned oil company Pertamina, which operates more than 90 percent of all gas stations in the country, lowered the price of the two nonsubsidized fuels on Feb. 1. Final retail prices still differ between regions because of different fuel tax policies. In Jakarta, Banten and West Java, the price for Pertamax was reduced from Rp 9,200 per liter to Rp 9,000 per liter while Pertamax Turbo was reduced from Rp 9,900 per liter to Rp 9,850 liter. Pertamina spokeswoman Fajriyah Usman said in a statement on Saturday, Jan. 1, that the lowering of fuel prices was “a corporate action that follows requirements set by the government.” The Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry issued on Dec. 26 Ministerial Decree No. 187/2019, which tightened the upper and lower selling prices of gasoline and diesel. The decree introduced a new formula to calculate retail prices based on the average selling prices in Singapore as per the Mean of Platts Singapore (MOPS).“The concept is that initial infrastructure investments should be returned within two, three, four years. We consider investments into acquiring oil tanks, pipes, trucks should all be returned by now so that all that remains is operational expenditure,” said the then acting oil and gas director general Djoko Siswanto.Forcibly lowering nonsubsidized fuel prices is part of the government’s effort to promote usage of such fuels and, thus, slash subsidized fuel consumption. The regulation further closes the price gap between Pertamax and Pertamax Turbo and the subsidized Premium gasoline brand, which is pegged at Rp 6,450 per liter under the One Fuel Price policy.According to the energy ministry, subsidized fuel distribution reached Rp 85.7 trillion last year, which was 14.9 percent below the annual expectation, but still a sizable chunk (5.2 percent) of the 2019 state budget. The government expects the value of subsidized fuel distribution to be even lower this year at Rp 70.5 trillion. Citing similar regulatory reasons, Pertamina first lowered prices on Jan. 5 for its Pertamax, Pertamax Turbo, Pertamina Dex and Dexlite fuel brands. Prices for the former two brands in Jakarta were lowered from Rp 9,850 to Rp 9,200 per liter and from Rp 11,200 to Rp 9,900 per liter, respectively.Local media outlets began reporting of lower retail fuel prices at Shell and Total gas stations starting Jan. 3 by up to 15.71 percent and 15.8 percent, respectively, for certain fuels sold in Greater Jakarta.“Shell’s internal policy sets prices depending on several conditions such as global oil prices, taxes, subsidies, logistics, local conditions, local regulations and operational costs,” said Shell vice president of external relations Rhea Sianipar.Fuel retailer BP-AKR said it has been wary of the ministerial decree since at least December last year, after several local business-oriented news outlets reported of its issuance. BP-AKR said it considers the decree one of two major uncertainties – aside from land acquisition – in its expansion plans.“We just need to be cautious when the new regulation is in place in January,” BP-AKR president director Peter Molloy told The Jakarta Post on Dec. 18. “We will look at how this regulation plays out before we make further investments.” Topics :
“The sky is so thick by my house; the sky is a dirty brown cloud and I live about 25 minutes to the west of the fire,” Twitter user Cris Mel said in a post. “It’s kind of a struggle to breathe.”A dangerous heat wave was baking swaths of the western United States through the weekend, and many locations in California registered record-high temperatures on Sunday.The temperature reached 121 degrees F (49 C) on Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles County, a record for the National Weather Service office that covers the metropolitan area.”This is an historic heat wave for southwestern CA and one that will be remembered for a long time,” the service said in a statement.State officials on Sunday repeated calls to Californians to turn off appliances and lights to help avoid blackouts from an overwhelmed power grid.Southern California Edison Co (SCE), which services 5 million customer accounts in the region, was advising customers of potential rotating outages between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Sunday.Rotating outages — in which utilities purposely cut power temporarily to avoid broader outages — are rare. They last occurred in the region in August. Before that, they had not occurred in 20 years, said SCE spokesmen Reggie Kumar. The blaze was 0% contained on Sunday afternoon, while nearly 15,000 firefighters were battling some two dozen fires across the state, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CalFire).Eight people have been killed and some 3,300 structures have been destroyed over the past three weeks in wildfires across the state.Three major fires, including the Creek Fire, were burning in Fresno, San Bernardino and San Diego counties, the agency said in a statement, adding it had increased staffing in preparation for “critical fire weather.”The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department issued a voluntary evacuation order on Sunday afternoon as the 5,350-square acre Valley Fire raged unchecked on the eastern edge of the metropolitan area of more than 3 million people. More than 200 people were airlifted to safety overnight after a fast-moving wildfire cut off the only road out of the Mammoth Pool Reservoir, a popular recreational site in California’s Sierra National Forest.Twenty evacuees were taken to hospitals, the Madera County Sheriff’s Department said on Twitter on Sunday, as the Creek Fire that started on Friday night rapidly grew to burn some 45,000 acres (18,210 hectares), forcing evacuations and road closures in the Fresno area in central California.”We’re completely trapped. There’s fire on all sides, all around us,” said Jeremy Remington, as he stood on a beach surrounded by fire in the Mammoth Pool Reservoir in a video posted on Twitter. Remington was later airlifted to safety, local news reported. Topics :
