Early Voting Continues In Vanderburgh County

first_imgEarly Voting Continues In Vanderburgh CountyOCTOBER 17TH, 2018 JEFF GOLDBERG EVANSVILLE, INDIANA Compared to the last midterm election cycle, the Vanderburgh County election office hasn’t seen much of an increase. County election officials say after almost a week of early voting, a little more than 700 people have come in to cast their ballot.What election officers have seen is a boom in mail-in ballots. They say that they’ve already sent out 2,600 mail-in ballots. They believe the reason for the influx is a mass mailer campaign by the Democratic Party that sent out thousands of mail-in applications.Early voting started on October 10th and runs all the way to November 5th at the Vanderburgh County election office at the Evansville Civic Center. There are also a couple of Saturdays, October 27th and November 3rd where voters can come in from 8am to 4pm to cast their ballot at the official office.Monday of next week early voting opens up to more polling places. At Central Library, McCollough Library, North Park Library, Oaklyn Library and Red Bank Library voting will start October 22nd and run Monday through Thursday from noon to 6 PM and then Fridays from noon to 5.If you can’t make it out during the week but still want to cast your ballot early, two Evansville area polling places have you covered. Northeast Baptist Church and Cedar Hall School will be open October 27th and November 3rd from 8AM to 3PM.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Watch Horseshoes & Hand Grenades’ Nostalgic New “Old Man And Me” Video [Premiere]

first_imgWisconsin-based folk and bluegrass band Horseshoes & Hand Grenades continues to impress fans everywhere, as the five-piece acoustic group finds themselves garnering new fans and exciting opportunities every day. It all fundamentally comes down to the band’s soulful sound, captured with rich harmonies and tight-knit musicianship.After placing 3rd in the 2012 Telluride Bluegrass Festival’s band competition, it’s been nothing but love for Horseshoes & Hand Grenades. The band has shared the stage with stalwarts like Railroad Earth, Trampled By Turtles, The Infamous Stringdusters, Yonder Mountain String Band and more, and even got to support the legendary Merle Haggard.The journey hasn’t slowed yet, as the band released a full length effort Middle Western back in 2015. One song from that album, “Old Man and Me,” was just made into a beautiful new music video. Says fiddle/mandolin player Collin Mettelka, “The song is a reflection of one way in which I’ve tried to make sense of my experience. The premise is not unique; what if my present experience is the ‘life flashing before my eyes’ moments before death? The song is an attempt to address such a premise through the lens of fate and free will. Ultimately what I’ve decided is that it doesn’t matter. One way or the other, my experience is my own and no rationalization of that experience should compromise its integrity.”Watch the new video for “Old Man and Me” streaming below, exclusively via L4LM.Guitarist/dobroist Adam Greuel describes the song best when he says, “This tune simply makes me happy. Hot sex and ice cold brandy wine sounds like a great time. Much of the tune reminds me of a sensual moment with a lover where time seems to no longer exist and all is simple and sweet.”For all things Horseshoes & Hand Grenades, head to their official website!last_img read more

Making Waves: Health IT Dives Into Data Lakes

first_imgThe healthcare industry is changing – fast.  The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says 30% of Medicare payments need to shift from volume-based to value-based care reimbursement models by 2016, and 50% by 2018.  Healthcare providers still have a lot of work to do to successfully make this transition.The 2015 HIMSS Leadership Survey found that while 41% of healthcare leaders think big data analytics is a number one priority for their organization, a surprising 81% still have basic questions around the quantity and type of data they should be collecting and how to actually turn that data into insight.That’s not especially good news considering healthcare data continues to grow at 48% per year through 2020 from clinical applications, Internet-enabled medical devices, wearables, and remote patient monitoring. With questions on how to manage all of the data being generated today, how will healthcare providers collect, secure, and share the next big wave of information to come?What are the next steps? How can healthcare organizations achieve accountable care and effectively support the empowered patient?Making a Splash with Predictive AnalyticsConsider the key role predictive analytics play as hospitals work to reduce their 30-day readmissions rates for acute myocardial infarction (AMI), heart failure (HF), and pneumonia (PN). To meet these requirements, healthcare providers must speed up the continuous feedback process using analytics across the continuum of care, including inputs from patient monitoring located in the home.Healthcare providers that have successfully implemented predictive analytics see measurable results – 54% of health IT leaders who spent 1-5% of their operating budget on analytics reported success within financial and clinical management.Advanced predictive analytics also provide organizations with clear cost reductions – Goldman Sachs predicts the total savings opportunity from digital health initiatives will be $305B. But how do healthcare organizations eliminate redundant infrastructure and copies of data, while improving data governance and compliance?Eye on the Data Lake Horizon A data lake provides massive scalability and multi-protocol data-in-place analytics, along with the enterprise data protection and security required by healthcare organizations. It provides a powerful data architecture with a unified location to help reduce silos across the healthcare enterprise. Data can also be connected from trusted outside sources including payers, genomic research centers, public health databases, biobanks, and social media feeds.Clinical departments, business analysts, and data science teams can conduct effective cross-data analysis as all internal data sources and trusted external sources are incorporated. Healthcare providers can further advance accountable care initiatives, creating a new realm of data science for uncovering trends, patterns, relationships, correlations, and discoveries that can impact integrated patient care.View our new infographic for more information and to see suggested first steps to help you navigate a data lake>>And, for a best practices example, see how Partners Healthcare, a Boston-based non-profit hospital and physicians network is leveraging a data lake to bring together databases from across disparate systems – speeding the time from research to discovery to clinic to improved patient care.

When TV meets academia

first_imgChristine Becker, associate professor of Film, Theater and Television, was one of just 20 professors selected to attend a seminar sponsored by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Foundation last week in Los Angeles. The exclusive seminar chose professors from across the country through an application process and invited them to the Academy’s headquarters for five days of educational panels, presentations by television executives and behind-the-scenes set visits. “It appears to be a way to create ties between the television industry and academia,” Becker said. “It’s partly to help us learn more about the industry and partly to help them with outreach into the educational community.” The Academy emphasized the wealth of opportunities they offer students such as internships or scholarships, as well as advice they give for graduates looking to get into the media industry. “[There was] advice from the panelists on how to find work in the industry when you’re just starting out,” she said. “Many of the participants enthusiastically recalled their own college experiences and how they carried things they learned in college into their careers.” Becker, who applied for the seminar last year but was not selected, said the academy chose educators from a variety of institutions and backgrounds. “About half of the professors taught television production and broadcast production, and the other half of us were television studies – what I would consider myself – or people who teach television history and criticism,” she said. Participating faculty traveled from institutions across the country, including Penn State, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Ryder University. Becker said the insight of the television industry members who work behind-the-scenes was the most beneficial experience. While television stars and showrunners, or “above-the-line” players, are likely to provide interviews and discuss their jobs, it is uncommon for “below-the-line” players to do the same. “The below-the-line panel, with an editor, cinematographer and production designer was really invaluable,” Becker said. “We got to hear them talk about what they do and how they create shows. … It was direct access to industry people we wouldn’t get otherwise.” Other panel discussions included topics such as how content is created for children’s television and the day-to-day duties of showrunners. The most fascinating panel featured program executives from each of the five major networks, Becker said, who are tasked with setting up the weekly schedule. “It was really interesting talking to them,” she said. “Increasingly, audiences are watching shows by other means, and their job is to find ways to keep the schedule in a traditional mode while also considering the fact that people are watching the shows from different means.” Regardless of their insight, Becker said she was honored the executives attended the conference in the first place. “These are extremely busy people with high-pressure jobs, and it’s gratifying to see they care enough about the fact that we are teaching the students this information that they would take time out of their day to talk to us,” she said. Trips outside of the Academy’s facilities to television and film production sets complimented the in-house panels. The group visited Stargate Studios, a visual effects studio that provides special effects for shows such as “Walking Dead,” and the Warner Bros. production area, where the Academy showed the professors the sets of multi-camera sitcoms such as “Two and a Half Men” and “The Big Bang Theory.” Becker said she particularly enjoyed a trip to the YouTube hangar, where industry workers are charged with creating professional-looking YouTube videos with high-quality content. “We got a look at the traditional method of Hollywood and then a glimpse of what the new future of content could potentially be,” she said. Becker said the seminar helped highlight some connections between traditional media practices and what students are beginning to explore. “When I ask my students if they watch shows on the time they’re scheduled, they say no,” Becker said. “It’s interesting, knowing that the students I teach, some of whom are going to be the future of the television industry, are doing very different things than the people in the industry are right now.”last_img read more

B’way Grosses: An American in Paris’ Fidgety Feet Shuffle Up the Boards

View Comments An American in Paris’ streak of beginner’s luck has not yet worn off. The musical was one of the few shows to increase in the grosses following last week’s Thanksgiving-driven success. The show was just shy of breaking back into the top five, which was dominated by usual suspects The Lion King, Wicked, Hamilton, Aladdin and The Book of Mormon. Wayne Brady had reason to say “yeah” in the week leading up to his opening night in Kinky Boots; the Tony-winning musical strutted back into seven figures. School of Rock opened on December 6 to many positive reviews; good word of mouth, kid-friendly content and some guy named Andrew Lloyd Webber could all contribute to the show appearing on these lists more often in the future.Here’s a look at who was on top—and who was not—for the week ending December 6:FRONTRUNNERS (By Gross)1.

CVPS seeks nominees for 2011 Zetterstrom Award

first_imgTo honor her lasting legacy and continuing environmental work by Vermonters,Central Vermont Public Service today called for nominations for the 2012 CVPS-Zetterstrom Environmental Award, named for famed osprey advocate Meeri Zetterstrom.The CVPS-Zetterstrom Environmental Award was presented for the first time in 2010, and is presented annually to one person, business, group or non-profit to honor a significant contribution to Vermont’s environment. It will be accompanied by a $2,500 donation to the winner’s environmental cause.Zetterstrom inspired CVPS and countless Vermonters through her dogged efforts to protect and restore Vermont’s osprey population.‘There are few Vermonters more devoted to wildlife and Vermont’s great outdoors than was Meeri Zetterstrom,’ said CVPS spokesman Steve Costello, who worked with her on osprey conservation for years. ‘Meeri’s exuberance and single-minded focus on osprey restoration were contagious. Once you spent time with Meeri, you couldn’t help but fall in love with ospreys.’Zetterstrom played a central role in the restoration of ospreys at Lake Arrowhead, a CVPS hydro facility that straddles the border of Milton and Georgia, Vt., and Vermont as a whole. Her requests ‘ and demands ‘ for assistance from the Department of Fish and Wildlife and CVPS prompted a long-running effort to educate Vermonters about the birds and help them expand their range in the Green Mountain State.With a bird’s-eye view of the lake, Zetterstrom was among the first to notice when ospreys returned to fish Arrowhead’s waters after their near extinction. Starting in 1988, the state and CVPS began cooperating to assist the ospreys, creating artificial nesting platforms, buffer zones and educational materials to provide the birds a fighting chance.A decade later, the first osprey chick in memory hatched and fledged at Lake Arrowhead, and seven years later, the birds’ revival allowed their removal from the Vermont Endangered species list. Zetterstrom received much of the credit.‘Few people can hope to accomplish what Zetterstrom did, but the award allows us to recognize those people and organizations that take among the most meaningful steps,’ CVPS President and CEO Larry Reilly said. ‘In recognizing them, we also honor Meeri’s legacy in the longer term.’Past winners include Sally Laughlin, a leading wildlife advocate and scientist whose work was instrumental in restoring three species of endangered birds in Vermont, and Michael Smith, the founder and driving force behind Rutland’s Pine Hill Park.Nominations for the CVPS-Zetterstrom Environmental Award will be accepted through March 15, and the winner announced in the spring. The winner will be chosen by a panel of CVPS employees with responsibilities related to land management, resource protection, community relations and education, and environmental compliance.Nominations may be made by the nominee or by any other entity, and should demonstrate a commitment of the nominee to benefit Vermont, its land, air or water, wildlife, or the enjoyment of the outdoors by others. This may be through educational efforts, environmental stewardship, resource rehabilitation, protection or preservation, or conservation. The award, though it may be presented to a business or larger organization, is intended to support environmental protection and inspire individuals to benefit Vermont’s environment. Vermonters of any age may be nominated.RUTLAND, VTlast_img read more
