first_imgHuey Lewis & The News have cancelled all of their remaining 2018 tour dates. According to a post on the band’s Facebook page, frontman Huey Lewis has been unable to hear properly for two-and-a-half months due to what are probably complications from Meniere’s disease. The band was slated to play a number of shows this year, including a set at San Francisco’s popular Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival.Lewis’ Facebook post reads:Huey Lewis and The News cancel all 2018 performancesTwo and a half months ago, just before a show in Dallas, I lost most of my hearing. Although I can still hear a little, one on one, and on the phone, I can’t hear music well enough to sing. The lower frequencies distort violently making it impossible to find pitch. I’ve been to the House Ear Institute, the Stanford Ear Institute, and the Mayo Clinic, hoping to find an answer. The doctors believe I have Meniere’s disease and have agreed that I can’t perform until I improve. Therefore the only prudent thing to do is to cancel all future shows. Needless to say, I feel horrible about this, and wish to sincerely apologize to all the fans who’ve already bought tickets and were planning to come see us. I’m going to concentrate on getting better, and hope that one day soon I’ll be able to perform again.Sincerely HueyThere’s word yet on how long Lewis will need to be off the road, but we wish him the best in his recovery.last_img read more


first_imgBat fungus that causes White-nose Syndrome detected for first time in California The tragic event is a reminder that the New River has swift currents, deep holes, and a rocky bottom. Water levels can change by the day. Life jackets should be worn in the water at all times, even while on a boat. The National Park Service reminds the public that most drownings in the New River involve people who didn’t plan on being in the water and that even experienced swimmers can become disoriented or incapacitated during an accident on the river.  Search crews find body of swimmer missing in New River Gorge National River The fungus that causes the deadly bat disease White-nose Syndrome (WNS) has been detected at low levels for the first time in California. The fungus was detected in samples collected from bats on private land in Plumas County, California and is the first indication that WNS has finally arrived in the state. The U.S. Forest Service has launched a program in Pisgah National Forest aimed at educating the public about the importance of macroinvertebrates and other aquatic wildlife. The first of its kind, four-woman ranger program works in teams seven days a week, visiting the most popular areas in Pisgah to provide education and outreach to kids and their parents, too. In the first four weeks of the program, the rangers collected 800 pounds of garbage, dismantled rock dams and rock sculptures, and interacted with over 800 people.  The fungus was first detected in New York in 2006 and has since spread to 33 states and seven Canadian provinces. It has killed over 6 million bats in North America by waking the bats during hibernation, forcing them to use energy reserves needed to survive the winter. Until spring of 2016, the westernmost occurrence of the fungus was in Nebraska. That spring, however, the WNS was detected in Washington State. Because bats produce just one offspring per year, it can take some populations decades to recover from the devastating disease. One of the program’s most important jobs is educating the public about the Eastern Hellbender. The large aquatic salamander lives in streams and rivers in Western North Carolina and is considered a species of special concern in the state. The Hellbender lives under large, flat rocks and feeds on aquatic insects. The public is asked not to move rocks as it disruptions the Eastern Hellbender and the macroinvertebrates that live on the rocks in the water.  U.S. Forest Service deploys “River Rangers” to protect fragile wildlife The body of a 16-year-old boy who was swimming near the McCreery River Access Point of New River Gorge National River in West Virginia was found on the afternoon of Friday, July 5. National Park Service rangers and trained search and rescue divers and personnel began searching for the boy shortly after he became caught in the swift-moving current around 7am on July 5. His body was located 200 yards downstream from where he was last seen, submerged 14 feet below the water. last_img read more

first_imgChairman of the London Pensions Fund Authority (LPFA) Edi Truell is to advise the mayor of London on collaboration between local government pension schemes (LGPS) and infrastructure investment.He will resign as chairman of the London public sector scheme and will set up an advisory board for the newly established partnership between LPFA and the Lancashire County Pension Fund.The joint venture, called the London Lancashire Pensions Partnership (LLPP), was approved last month and Truell was instrumental in pushing forward the collaboration.Truell, who also co-founded bulk annuity provider Pension Insurance Corporation (PIC), will now work as an unpaid adviser to mayor Boris Johnson on pensions and investments. The idea is to push forward Johnson’s ambition to create a London infrastructure investment fund using assets from the capital’s LGPS.Truell will also advise of LGPS consolidation, a long-term ambition of his and the LPFA as demonstrated by its involvement in LLPP.Johnson firmly backs the merging of LGPS schemes in order to save on costs and create a combined fund that could invest in large scale infrastructure projects.However, a previous attempt to push for this by proposing the idea in a national newspaper, Johnson came under fire for confusing funded and unfunded public sector schemes and inappropriately labelling large Dutch pension funds as sovereign wealth funds.Johnson said Truell’s work leading the LPFA and moving it towards its partnership with Lancashire was a service to public finance.“If we now use this new partnership as a blueprint for further pooling of pension funds, we could have a war chest worth hundreds of billions of pounds and access to the kind of investment opportunities which have until now been the preserve of foreign sovereign wealth funds,” he added.The LPFA/Lancashire, which has combined assets of £10.5bn (€14.3bn), is aiming to commence operation in April 2016.Both schemes will maintain separate governance structures, with oversight boards in both London and Preston, but merge investments, liability management and administration.last_img read more

Clippers’ Williams will serve 10-day quarantine, miss games LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — The NBA said Sunday that Lou Williams of the Los Angeles Clippers is being quarantined for 10 days because of his trip out of the league’s bubble last week to attend a family member’s funeral. He will miss at least two of the Clippers’ seeding games, including their July 30 opener against the Los Angeles Lakers.
