We had the pleasure of interviewing The National Parks over Zoom video! Folk-influenced male/female indie pop band The National Parks has released the official music video for their latest single, “Live Til We Die,” off their recently released album, A Mix For The End Of The World – Part 1. The fun and colorful visual, directed by Cameron Gade with cinematographer Spencer Goff, sees the Provo, UT-based quartet take a step back in time to a 1980s-style late night talk show. On the heels of the album's release earlier this month, The National Parks successfully launched their very own curated festival experience, Superbloom Music Festival, on Saturday, October 9th . The first-ever event took place under the stars near Zion National Park at Sand Hollow Resort in Southern Utah in front of a soldout crowd of nearly 2,000. Created by the band as a celebration of life and music set amid a beautiful location, Superbloom featured performances from Yoke Lore, Joseph, Joshua James, Ellee Duke, Brother. and Arbour Season before The National Parks closed out the day-long extravaganza. A Mix For The End Of The World – Part 1, released October 8th, marks the first half of the independent band's two-part digital-only project, which will see Part 2 released in early 2022. The 8-track collection, recorded at June Audio and produced and mixed by their longtime collaborator Scott Wiley, also features the singles “Headlights,” “Summer Bird” and “UFO,” the latter of which was recently featured on Ones To Watch's Now Playing playlist. A Mix For The End Of The World follows The National Parks' critically acclaimed 2020 album Wildflower and continues to showcase the band's sonic evolution and lead vocalist/guitarist Brady Parks' deep and heartfelt songwriting. Since emerging in 2013 with their introductory album Young, The National Parks — Brady Parks [guitar, vocals], Sydney Macfarlane [keys, vocals], Cam Brannelly [drums] and Megan Parks [violin] — have quietly grown into an independent phenomenon with roots embedded in blissful pop, cinematic electronics, organic orchestration, and rock energy. The four-piece has racked up over 150 million total streams, sold out headlining shows across the country, toured with Andy Grammer, Peter Bjorn and John and WILD, and performed at KAABOO Del Mar, SXSW and CMJ.

If you haven't seen the new "fire" movie, "Two Yellow Lines" - You need to stop what you're doing, and watch it...This isn't necessarily a "fire" movie in the context of actual "firefighting", but more along the lines of the inconvenient truths about the mental health components that can be associated with a fire career... The most incredible part of this film? It tells a vivid story of what wildland firefighters experience, without showing a SINGLE scene of "Hollywood-ized hero complex" firefighting...The story revolves around a Smokejumper who was involved with a tragedy fire, the PTSI as a result of the incident, his estranged daughter, and the long journey to recovery and healing.This is why we have the producer, writer, and lead actor, Zac Titus, on the show today to give us the breakdown of the film that is making waves across the fire community!Take a listen to this episode, then watch the film - Or watch the film and then listen to this episode...

Today, we talk about the geology of Yosemite National Park.  Specifically, we dive into 4 different aspects:1- What's the story behind all this granite?2- Why do these mountains look the way they do?  Glaciers3- What are all the cracks in the granite about?4- Rockfall!The formation of granite is taught in a very traditional way.  Magma intrudes deep inside the Earth and then cools slowly as the minerals grow larger.  Jesse says that's a very debatable and a hotly researched area now.  Jesse schools us on how magma is believed to cool and how we know.Then we get into the glacial part of Yosemite.  There are so many glacial features that are perhaps more obvious here than anywhere.  We talk about U-shaped valleys, hanging valleys, horns, and aretes.  Exfoliation is so prevalent here that it is impossible to miss.  We get into how exfoliation happens including an example that was caught on Camera - Twain Harte Rock. Lastly, we end with a brief discussion on the prevalence of Rockfall in YNP.  There are many rockfalls - some very large that occur with a stunning frequency.

Ep. 101: Will Shafroth – National Park Foundation, CEO & President || Proper land use and natural resource management on public lands is a mechanism to foster greater planetary stability.  Joining as guest of episode 101 is the President and CEO of the National Park Foundation, Will Shafroth.  Throughout the 45 minute conversation we explore how exposure, experience and immersion into the US National Parks changes mindsets for the better. We hear how enlightenment, empathy and environmental consciousness is presented each and every year to over 330 million visitors in 422 National Parks. Spanning all 50 states, the parks encompass 84 million acres, 2400 historical sites, 17K miles of trails and 43K miles of shoreline – available to us all as a public service. The vast majority of the National Parks are untouched wilderness. This wilderness combined with smart land use and proper natural resource management will help stabilize a planet under threat by coming at it from a few different angles.  Not only will these public lands (with a collective footprint about the size of Montana) clean water, sequester & bank carbon, and nurture biodiversity, but the National Parks offer a living classroom for deeper understanding and appreciation for the all important Nature-Based Solutions to climate change. Ultimately, reconnecting more of us with natural order is a required next step in (climate) action to mitigate climate change. Wallace Stegner famously called the National Parks “America's Best Idea”. Will Shafroth and his team at the National Park Foundation (NPF) believe that this best idea should be common grounds available to each and everyone of us no matter background or history. Under Shafroth's leadership, the National Park Foundation has spawned numerous initiatives to foster inclusion for all audiences and to cater to those who have been often overlooked in previous generations of visitors. Owning “the Good, the Bad and the Ugly” of National Parks and US History, Shafroth looks to the wide array of Parks, Sites and Monuments as learning laboratories and living classrooms that will progress social and environmental solutions for decades to come. In feeding our souls by reconnecting us with Nature, and with each other, the public lands of our National Parks can teach us a bit more about who we were, who we are now, and what we can become if we strive for a more just and balanced future. www.SourcingMatters.show

Season 2 Episode #14 - How to Connect with Spirit through Mediumship with Daniel Jackson In this podcast, Anna is with Daniel Jackson, also known as Spirit Medium Daniel. He can provide the insights needed for living in today's world. According to him, with the information from Spirit and Arc Angels, you can gain an understanding of your purpose, why you are here, and what is waiting for you on the other side of this life.   Back from his childhood in the 70s, his family who are catholic lived in a haunted house in the town of National Park, New Jersey. Daniel, his siblings, and his parents experienced and encountered spirits in their house. In the 80s, they already moved to Delaware but only Daniel was continuing to see these spirits along with the unusual and imaginable things in their house.    When he got married, he sought the help of paranormal groups and mediums on why spirits are coming to him. Then, he and his wife find out that these spirits are coming to him because they are attracted to Daniel's light and that he's special. From that point, he began to understand and see his purpose. He was able to start helping these spirits cross over to the light and other people by giving them answers to their questions.    Together, let's find out how Daniel overcame these adversities of unusual events and began to understand his purpose.   They also talked about:   01:35  How it all began with Daniel 06:50  How he got used to the paranormal events in his life 16:08  Daniel decided to help spirits and people 21:12  How does he feel to those people who don't believe him 28:50  How he affects the lives of the people he has helped 33:15  How he helps the spirit to cross-over 40:49  Freeing your mind to make you feel comfortable 45:49  What's the best way to contact Daniel 48:17  What's the best part of becoming a Medium 51:29  What freedom meant to him   Daniel also left us a message that we should learn to listen from our mind and heart, don't judge others, and never allow anyone to dictate what we want to feel and do.  Quotes:   “If I can keep this, maybe I can help some of these spirits that keep coming to me and other people”   “Whatever you need me to do or you need me to be, I will, because I don't want it to go away.”   “As long as you feel that guidance and you follow through what they are trying to tell you to do, then that's what people need to do.”   “I can only tell the truth one way, I can't tell the fifty ways until one-way suits you.”   “She has an open mind and open heart, to allow us to come in and you have to have that.”   “There are 2 things you need to do in your life, what works for you and what doesn't work for you.”   “I will follow what I feel is best for me.”   “I never apologize for being me.”   “You have to listen to yourself, you have to listen to your heart. ”   “You either believe or don't.” Daniel Jackson   Check out Daniel Jackson social media accounts   Twitter: https://twitter.com/mediumdaniel Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/spirit.medium.daniel Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/SpiritMediumDaniel Website: www.spiritmediumdaniel.com LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/daniel-jackson-29273b20b/   Do you want to be a speaker/guest on my podcast?

You're listening to the Westerly Sun's podcast, where we talk about the best local events, new job postings, obituaries, and more. First, a bit of Rhode Island trivia. Today's trivia is brought to you by Perennial. Perennial's new plant-based drink “Daily Gut & Brain” is a blend of easily digestible nutrients crafted for gut and brain health. A convenient mini-meal, Daily Gut & Brain” is available now at the CVS Pharmacy in Wakefield. Now for some trivia. Did you know that Rhode Island native, Clement Labine was an American right-handed relief pitcher in Major League Baseball best known for his years with the Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodgers from 1950 to 1960. As a key member of the Dodgers in the early 1950s, he helped the team to its first World Series title in 1955 with a win and a save in four games. He is one of eight players in MLB history to have won back-to-back World Series championships on different teams. He held the National League record for career saves from 1958 until 1962; his 96 career saves ranked fourth in MLB history when he retired. He also set a Dodgers franchise record of 425 career games pitched. Now for our feature story: By serving as vice president of the National Conference of State Legislatures, veteran lawmaker Brian Patrick Kennedy says he will have an opportunity to help ensure Rhode Island has an opportunity to influence the organization's legislative and policy agenda. Kennedy, a state representative who represents Hopkinton and a portion of Westerly, was elected to serve as vice president of the conference during the organization's legislative summit in Tampa, Florida. The bipartisan organization serves each state and U.S. territory and the nation's 7,383 state lawmakers and legislative staff. Founded in 1975, the conference works to advance the effectiveness, independence and integrity of legislatures and to foster interstate cooperation and facilitate the exchange of information among legislatures. Kennedy said: "I appreciate the opportunity to serve as vice president and look forward to working with my colleagues from around the country. NCSL has afforded legislators and staff an unrivaled opportunity to learn from the experiences of other states, exchange ideas and come up with policy solutions that can help propel our respective states and, ultimately, our entire nation forward. I also look forward to working with our Washington office to ensure federal policies are in line with state priorities." Kennedy's election marks the first time a legislator from a New England state has served in one of the conference's four leadership positions in nine years and the first time a Rhode Island lawmaker was ever selected. Kennedy remarked: "I think this is big for Rhode Island. Not only do we get to be involved with helping to set the agenda and figuring out legislative priorities on a national level, but we're going to help coordinate these central policies and how they impact state priorities moving forward."  Kennedy, who is in his 33rd year in the Rhode Island statehouse, has been involved with the conference for more than 20 years. For the past five years, Kennedy has served as speaker pro tempore in the Rhode Island House of Representatives.  Kennedy will serve one year as vice president, ascend to president-elect the following year and then become president at the legislative summit in 2024. NCSL leadership alternates between political parties every year. Idaho Speaker Scott Bedke, a Republican, will serve as president-elect of NCSL, and Speaker Scott Saiki of Hawaii, a Democrat, became the 48th president of the NCSL. For more about the coronavirus pandemic, the recovery, and the latest on all things in and around Westerly, head over to westerlysun.com.

A retired Episcopal Priest, John celebrated the 50th Anniversary of his Ordination in 2014, and over his ministry served parishes in Westport, CT; Concord, MA; Swampscott, MA; Johnson City, NY; and in retirement as Priest Associate at Christ Church in Westerly. He is the son of the late Dr. John and Mildred Barrett of Westerly and is predeceased by his wife of 55 years, Carol. He is survived by his 3 sons, 5 grandchildren, his sister, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. John was known to many as "Jack" and was active throughout his priesthood and his life, having served on many local and diocesan groups and committees and enjoyed the opportunity to visit the Holy Land on two occasions. He was a volunteer firefighter in Westport and served for many years as a Chaplain for the Swampscott Fire Department. Jack and his family enjoyed the outdoors and traveled every summer visiting National Parks and historic landmarks throughout the country. Thank you for taking a moment with us today to remember and celebrate John's life. That's it for today, we'll be back next time with more!

We talk about a few that are particularly terrifying. The Burmese python is a large snake that was introduced into the wild through the pet trade. These massive snakes snatch up anything from small creatures to alligators. Along with large snakes, wild boars are also a huge issue in Florida. These feral pigs have found homes all over the south east US after being introduced as livestock from early European settlers.We also talk about the Coqui frog which has taken over the forests of Hawaii. For its small size the frog can let out a loud croak which is an issue among locals. Gypsy Moths are another invasive species that are taking over the Midwest and northern US states. If you see one of these guys do us a favor and give it a good smash.Invasive species are a huge issue globally and recently Pablo Escobar's hippos have come into the news due to their new protection status.

In the most northern part of historic Palestine is an archaeological site, now within a National Park, that has remains of the Bronze Age city of Laish and of the iron age city of Dan. In Arabic the location is called Tel el Qadi, the hill of the judge.This archaeological site has two very impressive city gates that were excavated. The Bronze Age gate was built by the Canaanites who called their city Laish. They built a mud brick gate with pointed arches, the oldest one found in the region (18th Century BC). The city was conquered by the Israelites who built new walls and new gates. The iron age gate that was excavated is built of local basalt blocks and has four chambers. At the gate they found a platform with stones in which sticks could be placed to hold up a canopy to create shade for the judge (hence the hill of the judge). It is also the site where the Israelite King Jeroboam set up a high altar with a golden calf where the Jewish people could worship their God Yahweh instead of going to Jerusalem in the south. The sacrificial area that the excavators found is thought by some scholars to be that place. The excavations are found in the Tel Dan National Park. Through this National Park the Dan stream flows down towards the Jordan river. The other contributors to the Jordan river are the Hasbani river and the Banias river.

Today I am chatting with much beloved fiction author Regina Scott. Regina is the author of more than FIFTY books, and she has lived such a cool life. She's a wife and a mother, she's a scientist, she's an author, she's a woman with a killer costume collection, but most of all she is someone whose kindness and sense of wonder about the world is contagious.  During our conversation, Regina shares her fascinating story with us and how it has shaped her vision of the world, and the worlds she creates in her books. We also do some major history nerding out, particularly about women's history on the West Coast and pursuing the right to vote. You'll get a kick out of some of the crazy reasons society believed women shouldn't vote, and the unique ways women went about showing that they indeed could do many things others believed they couldn't do. She also shares all kinds of super fascinating history that she has come across in her research for her historical fiction works, especially about the early development of National Parks in the U.S.. We discuss how God uses creation, history, and anything and everything to speak to us and how we can encounter Him uniquely and intentionally because He is in all things.  Regina is just so lovely. She instantly feels like a warm friend, who loves stories, history and has such a sweet sense of wonder about her, so I know you guys are just going to love hanging out with her and learning from her. Maybe you'll learn something you didn't know, or maybe you'll be encouraged to not give up on the dream that's still in your heart. Maybe you need a push to pursue some wonder in your days.

Toyota Untold is celebrating the highly anticipated release of the next generation 2022 Tundra with a special three-part series, starting with a wholesome fireside chat with U.S. Air Force Veteran, DIY Tundra overlander, and lifelong Toyota driver, Jeff Buchenroth. Jeff outfitted his 2016 Tundra to tour the country's National Parks and shares his experiences with us today...many of which share themes of the kindness and kindred spirit that he's found on the road, from Glacier to Yellowstone and many stops in between. Following Jeff, our friend Kevin Kavanagh, the leader of the pack at Tundras to Sedona, takes us into the desert with more than one-hundred other Tundras, their owners, pets, and families, to tell us all about the largest off-road Tundra event in the world (even though they don't like to brag).

113. Julian Saporiti with Tomo Nakayama—No-No Boy: Innovations on contemporary American folk music

In The Moment podcast

Play Episode Listen Later Nov 8, 2021 57:25


Vietnamese American musician Julian Saporiti grew up in Nashville, surrounded by music made by people who didn't look like him. Determined to dig deeper into the definition of American Folk music as part of his extensive doctoral studies, Saporiti began to explore his own family's history, pore over archival material, and conduct interviews; what he found were the untold musical stories of Asian American artists like himself. He transformed his research into concerts, albums, and films to create the immersive multimedia experience known as No-No Boy. In Town Hall's 113th episode of the In the Moment podcast, musician and former Town Hall Artist-in-Resident Tomo Nakayama talks with Saporiti about lyric writing, inspiration, and the art of making music not only as Asian Americans, but also as Americans. Julian Saporiti is the Vietnamese American songwriter, scholar, and creator of the multimedia musical experience, No-No Boy. His art and music reflect issues such as race, refugees, and immigration, allowing audience members to sit with complication as music and visuals open doorways to difficult histories. Saporiti has taught courses in songwriting, music, literature, history, Asian American Studies, and ethnic studies at the University of Wyoming, Colorado College, and Brown University and has served as artist/scholar in residence at many universities and high schools across the country. Saporiti holds degrees from Berklee College of Music, University of Wyoming, and Brown University, and has been commissioned by cultural institutions such as Lincoln Center, the LA Philharmonic, the National Parks, and Carnegie Hall. His latest album, 1975, was released by Smithsonian Folkways earlier this year. Tomo Nakayama is an artist whose melodic, complex, and emotionally compelling music has been praised by NPR, New York Times, and The Stranger. His albums include Fog on the Lens, Pieces of Sky (named “Best Folk Act” by Seattle Weekly), and Melonday, which was named one of the Top Albums of 2020 by Seattle Times, KEXP, and Seattle Met. No-No Boy: https://www.nonoboyproject.com/    No-No Boy performs live at Town Hall Seattle on November 12, 2021.
