Ferry Corsten Punks Out Pacha

first_imgFerry Corsten is pretty much trance music royalty at this point – he’s been topping charts for over a decade while filling up huge venues and festivals all across the world. He’s one of the most accomplished and respected DJs around, and it seems like every time he swings by Pacha, he puts on a great set. This time was no different, as a packed crowd was treated to over four hours of trance heaven. Ferry mixed it up throughout the night, playing newer tracks and classics, though never changing the tempo and the crowds reaction. From the moment he stepped into the booth, he had the crowd at his fingertips , fans pushing up as far as they could just to dance a little bit closer to the superstar.As the clock pushed slightly past 1:00 am, the crowd began to get anxious, chanting ‘Ferry, Ferry’ until the man  himself came out to thunderous applause. The energy never slowed down from the set’s first notes, with fast and heavy beats pumping behind extremely catchy synths. Ferry’s synths are the kind of catchy that when they get stuck in your head, you don’t even mind. Songs like ‘Punk’ have stuck in the heads of trance fans since it’s release, yet they can’t resist chanting the song’s hook back at Ferry when he plays it. On the same level, Ferry to be enjoying dropping the same hook over and over again, and he looks like he’s having as much fun as ever. There really aren’t many other dance music artists who have had the longevity that Ferry has had at such a high level.Some set highlights  include Ferry’s recent Snow Patrol remix, ‘New York’, which garnered a great response from the crowd,  ‘Live Forever’, which is off of Ferry’s latest album, WKND, and the Markus Schulz collaboration ‘Loops and Things’. Corsten Schulz are a fantastic duo, they recently through an epic seven hour set in Washington DC, and releasing both the aforementioned ‘Loops and Things’ and ‘Stella’ to rave reviews. If these tracks and that show are a sign of the future, we can only hope that these two start spending some more time together. But I digress, there were really too many highlights over four hours to mention, but it was that standard high level of dance music you would expect from Ferry. Always changing, always consistent, and always energetic.It seemed like the crowd would have stayed for another four hours, but Ferry eventually took off and the crowd diluted. It seems like Ferry is at a level where he’s going to come out and impress you every time. Even if you remember how great he really is , he’s still bound to do something new that will live you smiling. Also, Pacha is truly a great venue for trance music, so it’s great to see such great talent getting booked here. The crowds seem to react positively, it feels less rowdy, everyone just feels the music and dances until it stops. Hopefully more of the genre’s store will grace it’s booth – it seems Ferry enjoys it as he keeps coming back. So with the combination of talent and environment, there was really no where to go wrong.last_img read more

Drum Prodigy Nandi Bushell Graciously Accepts Dave Grohl’s Admission Of Defeat [Video]

first_imgOn Thursday, the dramatic feud between Dave Grohl and 10-year-old YouTube sensation Nandi Bushell came to a close when the Foo Fighters frontman conceded defeat on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Then on Sunday, Bushell issued her response to Grohl’s admission which, rather than gloating in the face of victory, looked ahead to the former adversaries’ upcoming collaboration.The saga between the British girl and the world-famous musician stretches back to August 17th, when Bushell posted a video on her YouTube page of her drumming to the Foo Fighters hit “Everlong” and challenged Grohl to a drum-off. Grohl responded in kind by performing the song, as well as issuing a new challenge for Bushell to play “Dead End Friends” by Them Crooked Vultures.In September, Bushell responded with a beat-for-beat recreation of Grohl’s performance, after which the 51-year-old musician declared her the victor of round one. In honor of Bushell’s victory, Grohl even wrote a theme song for the “superhero” in addition to admitting defeat on national television.Related: Watch Dave Grohl’s 8-Year-Old Daughter Rock The Drums In Iceland With Foo FightersNow, with their competition behind them, Bushell and Grohl are ready to join forces and collaborate on a song. But first, however, it was time for Bushell to claim victory, which she did in a charmingly well-produced video posted to her Twitter on Sunday. The video features her invoking the gods of rock in poetic verse, as well as quoting the Tenacious D song “Tribute” in anticipation of her and Grohl writing “The greatest song in the world.”Bushell says in the video,Mr Grohl, thou declare defeat at my feet/the rocks gods of old watch you retreat/your legend of history will echo in time/but still you resign to a child of three foot nine/sticks/rock gods be with me/I call on thee/strum Hendrix, slap Lemmy, and sing with me Freddie/the legendary Grohl wants to jam with me/and we shall create the greatest rhapsody!Watch Nandi Bushell claim victory over Dave Grohl, and look out for a forthcoming collaboration between the former combatants.last_img read more

Most people with depression receive inadequate treatment or no care at all

first_imgShare on Twitter The vast majority of people with depression across the world are not receiving even minimally adequate treatment for their condition, according to a new study of more than 50,000 people in 21 countries by King’s College London, Harvard Medical School and the World Health Organization (WHO).The research, published today in the British Journal of Psychiatry, reports that of 4,331 people with depression across all 21 countries, treatment rates vary widely. In high income countries only one in five people with depression receive adequate treatment. The situation in the poorest countries of the world is far worse, where one in 27 people with depression receive adequate treatment.Globally, an estimated 350 million people of all ages suffer from depression, and the condition is the leading cause of disability worldwide. There is an increasing awareness that depression can be reliably diagnosed and treated in primary care settings using psychological therapy or medication, yet these scientifically proven and effective treatments are not being delivered on a wide scale. LinkedIn Email The researchers analysed data from the WHO World Mental Health Surveys, a series of 23 community surveys in 21 countries. These included 10 low or middle income countries (Brazil, Bulgaria, Colombia, Iraq, Lebanon, Mexico, Nigeria, People’s Republic of China (PRC), Peru and Romania) and 11 high income countries (Argentina, Belgium, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and the USA).The researchers defined minimally adequate treatment as receiving either pharmacotherapy (at least one month of medication plus four or more visits to a doctor) or psychotherapy (at least eight visits with any professional including religious or spiritual advisor, social worker or counsellor).Professor Graham Thornicroft from the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) at King’s College London, who led the study, said: ‘We call on national and international organisations to make adequate resources available for scaling up the provision of mental health services so that no one with depression is left behind. Our results indicate that much treatment currently offered to people with depression falls far short of the criteria for evidence-based and effective treatment.‘Intriguingly, about half of all people with depression did not think they had a problem that needed treatment and this proportion fell to only a third in the poorest countries. This strongly suggests that we also need to support people with depression and their family members to recognise that they have a treatable condition and should seek treatment and care.’Professor Thornicroft added: ‘Providing treatment at the scale required to treat all people with depression is crucial, not only for decreasing disability and death by suicide, but also from a moral and human rights perspective, and to help people to be fully productive members of society.’This study was carried out in conjunction with the World Health Organization World Mental Health (WMH) Survey Initiative.center_img Pinterest Share on Facebook Sharelast_img read more

Los Alamos County Prepares For COVID-19

first_imgIn response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Los Alamos County Emergency Operations Center is set up at the Los Alamos Police Department and currently operating virtually. Courtesy/LACBy KIRSTEN LASKEYLos Alamos Daily Postkirsten@ladailypost.comLos Alamos County and Los Alamos Medical Center (LAMC) have prepared for when the COVID-19 coronavirus makes its way into the community.One case has been announced. N3B, a Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) contractor that handles legacy waste cleanup, informed employees late Monday that one of its workers tested positive for COVID-19.In the announcement published Tuesday in the Los Alamos Daily Post, N3B management said, “We are working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the New Mexico Department of Health (NM DOH) to ensure coworkers who had contact with the individual take appropriate action and seek medical attention if symptoms arise.”N3B administrative workforce has worked remotely for more than two weeks and reduced its field work last Friday to essential mission critical activities, according to the announcement.The Post received information that the individual testing positive for the coronavirus lives in Sandoval County, however, N3B has not confirmed that information.Although Los Alamos has been relatively fortunate so far, County and hospital officials are being proactive in responding to this pandemic.Los Alamos County Emergency Manager Beverley Simpson said during an interview Monday with the Post that the New Mexico Department of Health is providing testing for the COVID-19 virus, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. today at Overlook Park in White Rock.“We are hoping to provide more testing to those who are unable to get out of town or haven’t met the criteria for getting tested,” Simpson said.To further educate the public on how to take precautions against the virus, Simpson said the County plans to distribute flyers to residents about the importance of social distancing and numbers to call for more information “so individuals can get the assistance if they require it.”Regarding the largest employer in town, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Simpson said she is in contact with LANL officials daily to discuss what is occurring at different locations. She added that most LANL employees are working remotely (approximately 5,000 LANL employees who are Los Alamos County residents).Other County departments have taken measures to address COVID-19.“I encourage folks to continue social distancing and avoid large crowds,” Police Chief Dino Sgambellone said. “Together, as a community, we will get through this. Following the CDC’s guidelines on social distancing and hygiene will get us through that much sooner.”Police are continuing to respond to emergencies and calls for service throughout the community. However, for the duration of the COVID-19 public health emergency, officers may elect to handle certain non-emergency calls via telephone.

Our responders will be following protocols designed to stop the spread if given this information.”LAMC CEO John Whiteside said the hospital is prepared to treat anyone who has contracted the virus.“We’ve been prepared since the virus came out,” Whiteside said. “We have extensive policies and procedures that we worked with the CDC and state Department of Health to develop.”Simpson commends the community for how proactive and responsive it has been.“This is a very well read and intelligent community,” she said. “Most people here follow the rules, we have not seen issues at all with people congregating or large groups going out. We still encourage people to get out … running, exercising, hiking on trials – there are lots of opportunities to do things. We are lucky to still have those outdoor activities available to us.”Chief Sgambellone agreed.“I think most citizens have been doing their part with respect to compliance with the Governor’s order,” he said. “I see a number of people exercising and walking their dogs and I encourage that. It is challenging for people to remain confined to their residence and the ability to get some fresh air is not only healthy but will likely limit tensions within the home that could lead to regrettable domestic violence situations.“Unfortunately, we had some criminals decide to take advantage of the current situation and break in to several Los Alamos businesses. I want to assure the public we are aggressively investigating these crimes and continue to employ various security strategies to safeguard our citizens, their businesses and homes.”Simpson said citizen-created Facebook pages such as Los Alamos Helping Each Other During COVID-19 are excellent.“They are doing a fantastic job,” she said.Federal response can take weeks, so it is really inspiring to see neighbors helping one another, Simpson said.“I appreciate everyone,” she said. “Our community’s willingness and ability to help others … it is inspirational to see what this community can come together and do for each other.”Simpson said she has put in requests to the Department of Homeland Security’s emergency management and the Department of Health for medical Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and cleaning supplies. Simpson said she expects to receive a response this week to her requests.“I’m (also) actively working on sheltering capacity in the event we have a surge at the hospital,” Simpson said.During the Los Alamos County Council meeting Tuesday, County Manager Harry Burgess reported more details about the County’s options for additional shelters in the event the hospital fills to capacity.Burgess said the County has six identified locations shelters, which include four churches and two schools including Los Alamos Middle School and Los Alamos High School. He said the American Red Cross has reviewed these shelters for infrastructure, mechanical equipment and ADA access.Burgess said that people are sheltering in their homes and that the medical community recommends people stay in their homes for isolation purposes as well as to keep space open at the hospital for those with critical needs.Burgess also touched on the issue of masks during his briefing to Council. He said that the CDC is altering its recommendations on masks but nothing definite has yet been issued. He added that the County does not have the authority to order everyone to wear a mask.On the state level, Burgess said President Trump has approved the New Mexico state’s request for a U.S. Army field hospital, which will provide more than 250 beds. He added that during the Governor’s most recent press conference, it was announced that access to a former Lovelace Hospital in Albuquerque has been acquired to help accommodate needs across New Mexico.Los Alamos County has a page dedicated on it website to the corona virus; it can be viewed at https://www.losalamosnm.us/government/departments/emergency_management___e_m_/pandemic_and_coronaviruslast_img read more
