ARISE has continued to build a strong reputation within the Colorado scene, bringing incredible and diverse performers into a uniquely intimate and gorgeous setting. The festival has rounded out the headliner slots with Lettuce and SunSquabi, in addition to previously announced Atmosphere, Tipper, and Beats Antique.The festival has seemingly outdone themselves in 2017, boasting a lineup with exciting sets from Ani DiFranco, Rising Appalachia, Brother Ali, The Expendables, Dirtwire, Desert Dwellers, Dopapod, Brasstracks, and Late Night Radio. The lineup continues with featured appearances from bluegrass favorites The Travelin’ McCourys, Jeff Austin Band, The Brothers Comatose, and The Grateful Ball featuring Jeff Austin, Ronnie McCoury, Robbie McCoury, and more. See the full lineup below:With eight stages of musical performances, plus more bands to be announced through May, the 5th Year Celebration of Colorado’s fastest growing music festival is sure to be the best yet.Recognized as more than a music festival, ARISE offers a range of activities such as workshops, enriching yoga classes, provocative documentary films and panel discussions, art installations, live painters, art gallery, performance artists and theme camps. ARISE also offers “interactive villages” including a Children’s Village, Food Truck Village, Vending Village, Healers Village, Hemp Village, Wisdom Village and a Solution’s Village, showcasing ecological and social justice solutions with practical on-site demonstrations designed to make our world a better place.More information can be found on the festival website.[Cover Photo by Eric Allen via ARISE Facebook Page]Enter To Win A Pair Of Weekend Passes Below!
The Georgia Envirotron in Griffin, Ga., is a one-of-a-kind environmental control facility. Dedicated June 9, the University of Georgia center will help scientists worldwide study the effects of global change on plants. Gerald Arkin heads the Griffin campus of the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. He said the discovery of new knowledge through the Envirotron “will benefit Georgia, the Southeast, the nation and the world.” The $1.26 million facility allows researchers to study how a number of stresses affect plants. Scientists can control the temperature, humidity, light, pollutants and atmospheric gases. The Envirotron provides controlled environments to study anything from single plants to entire landscapes. Researchers use indoor growth chambers to study plants, pests and diseases. Greenhouses allow researchers to simulate crops in the field. And movable sunlit chambers were designed for landscape-level research. The Envirotron will eventually allow off-site researchers to access data through the Internet. Arkin said the idea for the Envirotron began in 1991 at a National Institute for Global Environmental Change conference. About 250 scientists had gathered to find an engineering response to global change. “Some good ideas came forward,” he said. “One of the challenging concepts was the need for facilities that would allow us to better address global change.” Some such facilities were already out there. But they didn’t go far enough, Arkin said. “Those scientists suggested that the new facilities allow them and their colleagues to work together,” he said. “And they wanted to study not just aboveground phenomena affecting plants and ecosystems. They wanted to study, at the same time, both above- and belowground phenomena affected by global change.” In 1992, scientists from NASA, the Department of Energy, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and others in the Southeast conducted a study. They found enough value in building such a facility in the Southeast. The group chose the region because of the importance of farming, the diversity of plants, the many soil types and the climate. Grants from the Georgia Environmental Technology Consortium, a unit of the Georgia Research Alliance, funded the Envirotron. The GRA helps build research facilities to promote economic growth in the state. It funded the Envirotron through the GETC air quality program to address such issues as how pollution affects crops and how plants and soils neutralize or reduce man-made pollutants. The UGA Office of the Vice President for Research and the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences provided funds, too. “Our vision is that scientists, working in multidisciplinary and multi-agency teams and in partnership with industry, will address the complex environmental issues that impact all our lives,” Arkin said. “We also envisioned that this facility will spin off new technologies with this teamwork of scientists.” Scientists from Germany, Japan and Thailand are already using the Envirotron. “The Georgia Envirotron is one of several programs the College has undertaken to strengthen the cooperation between agricultural and environmental sciences,” said CAES Associate Dean Ivery Clifton . “In fact, cooperation is one of the principles that guided its design and is built into its operating plan.” The Envirotron is unique. But it isn’t complete. Arkin said the scientists who planned it expect it to grow. “We expect it to accommodate the science necessary to attack more robust and more complex issues,” he said, “as we move down the path to research discovery.”

Inter Milan suffered a humiliating first Serie A defeat of the season as they were thumped by bottom club Cagliari at the San Siro.Marco Sau put the visitors ahead but on-loan Southampton striker Dani Osvaldo equalised quickly.Inter were reduced to 10 men when captain Yuto Nagatomo was sent off for picking up his second yellow card.Cagliari, who had taken one point from their opening four games, eased to victory through Albin Ekdal’s treble.The Swedish striker, who had only scored three times in 77 previous appearances for Cagliari, doubled his tally for the club with a 15-minute hat trick. The scoreline could have been worse for Inter, who saw goalkeeper Samir Handanovic save a first-half penalty from Andrea Cossu when the score was still 3-1.Former Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic, who joined Inter in the summer, conceded the spot-kick with a clumsy foul.Cagliari had lost their previous three matches but moved up to 13th with the win.
The Uganda Cranes will next take on Malawi on Sunday. (PHOTO/File)Africa Cup of Nations 2021 Qualifiers-Group BBurkina Faso 0-0 UgandaStade du 4 Aout, Ouagadougou Wednesday, 13-11-2019The Uganda Cranes earned a valuable point in their opening Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2021 qualifier away to Burkina Faso.In the game played on Wednesday, Johnathan McKinstry’s side held the hosts to a 0-0 draw at the Stade du 4 Aout in Ouagadougou.In his first match as Cranes coach, McKinstry did not alter much in the team that played at AFCON 2019 where Uganda reached the knock out stages of the competition.He started captain Denis Onyango in goal and was only forced to field Joseph Ochaya at left-back as Godfrey Walusimbi is now retired.In a 4:2:3:1 formation, Khalid Aucho and Mike Azira shielded the back four that also contained Bevis Mugabi, Timothy Awanyi and Murushid Jjuuko, on top of Ochaya.The trio of Abdul Lumala, Emmanuel Okwi and Faruku Miya played behind lone-strike Patrick Kaddu.It was a contest that started with Uganda willing to take a point and barely threatened the Burkina Faso defence.Okwi looked the likeliest source for goals but the former Simba SC striker could not come up with the goods when required.For the host, it is a disappointing result as they bid to return to Africa’s football showpiece, having missed out last time out in Egypt.Even with seasoned performers like Lassina Traore, Charles Kabore and Jonathan Pitroipa all starting, the Stallions could not break down a strong Cranes team.In the end, both had to settle for a point which puts them joint second on the log, two points behind Malawi.Malawi are top of group B following their 1-0 victory over South Sudan in the other game.Uganda is expected to return to Kampala on Thursday before embarking on preparations for the next game.McKinstry’s side host Malawi at Mandela National Stadium in Namboole on Sunday, the same day that Burkina Faso will be away to South Sudan in the other group B encounter.How both teams startedUgandaDenis Onyango (GK, Captain), Bevis Mugabi, Joseph Benson Ochaya, Timothy Denis Awany, Murushid Juuko, Khalid Aucho, Mike Azira, Faruku Miya,Emmanuel Arnold Okwi, Abdul Lumala, Henry Patrick KadduBurkina FasoAdama Sawadogo (GK), Steeve Yago, Edmond Tapsoba , Issoufou Dayo, Yacouba Coulibaly , Charles Kabore l, Bryan Boulaye Dabo, Jonathan Pitroipa, Eric Traore, Cyrille Bayala, Lassina TraoréComments Tags: AFON 2021 QualifiersBurkina FasoEmmanuel OkwiJohnathan McKinstryUganda Cranes
