Danger Mouse (aka Brian Burton) will release a compilation of songs through his label 30th Century later this week. Dubbed 30th Century Records Compilation Volume I, the record will include artists signed to Burton’s label, although there is one notable outlier who makes an appearance on the collection of songs, The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach and his latest side-project, The Arcs.The Arcs will contribute a song called “Fools Gold.” Auerbach tells Rolling Stone, “Generally, fool’s gold is made of iron or copper pyrites that are often mistaken for gold. It has the same thrilling discovery, the same shiny luster and perceived weight as gold, but it isn’t gold and when all is said and done, it has the same value as a hunk of s—. It’s always been so easy to be a fool.”Take a listen to the new single below:
Vermont Business Magazine The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Windham & Windsor Housing Trust (WWHT) celebrated National Homeownership Month at Putney resident Dennis Miller’s new home at Locust Hill Mobile Home Park Tuesday. Miller is the first homeowner to purchase an energy efficient modular home through USDA Rural Development’s Energy Efficient Manufactured Home Pilot Program.“Manufactured homes have long offered an affordable housing option for many Vermonters, however older manufactured homes often have high maintenance and operational costs,” said Ted Brady, USDA Rural Development Vermont and New Hampshire State Director. “The energy cost savings of new manufactured and modular homes, combined with USDA’s long-term, low-rate, no-down-payment mortgages, offer existing and potential manufactured housing park residents new financing opportunities.”Miller, a Putney resident employed by the Putney School, purchased a Vermont-made Net Zero Energy Capable VERMOD and placed it in the Locust Hill Mobile Home Park owned by Windham & Windsor Housing Trust. Miller’s purchase, coordinated by Windham & Windsor Housing Trust, was completed with financial support from Champlain Housing Trust, the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board, Efficiency Vermont and USDA Rural Development.USDA Rural Development’s Energy Efficient Manufactured Home Pilot Program allows low income homebuyers to purchase a high-performance modular or manufactured home in a manufactured home park using a 30 to 33-year mortgage at 3 percent. Very low income homebuyers may be eligible for an interest subsidy down to 1 percent. Brady noted that park tenants seeking a mortgage to purchase a new home and site it on a leased manufactured park lot traditionally face short-term, high-interest mortgages.Two models of high-performance homes have been approved for purchase through the pilot program, the Better Homes AHEAD Manufactured Home and the VERMOD modular home. Homeowners in Rural Development-approved parks are eligible for participation in the program. More information on Rural Development’s Energy Efficient Manufactured Home Pilot Program can be found on the Rural Development website or by contacting Jill Chapman at (802) 828-6022 or by email at [email protected](link sends e-mail).Rural Development and Windham & Windsor Housing Trust celebrated Miller’s new home and Homeownership Month during a service project in the Locust Hill Mobile Home Park.

An independent, woman-owned coffee shop may be moving into downtown Farmington’s Masonic Hall.Planning commissioners will on Monday take a look at plans for Blue Hat Coffee & Gallery, which currently operates in a historic home just off U.S. 12 in Coldwater, Michigan. The shop would occupy the building’s first floor, with a small patio built along the south side.This illustration shows how the patio would be configured if plans for the Blue Hat Cafe are approved.Plans call for reserving for private use five parking spaces in the untimed, public lot on the north side of the building, with the balance of spaces becoming time-limited. Other than the patio and interior design, the structure of the historic Masonic Hall will remain unchanged.Commissioners will review plans and set a public hearing date during their 7 p.m. meeting at City Hall. Learn more about Blue Hat Cafe at bluehatcoffee.com.The agenda also includes a public hearing on the city’s 2020/2025 Capital Improvement Program, a short-term plan for identifying and categorizing large and/or very expensive projects. The CIP does not fund projects, but helps determine priority for major expenditures.Plans for the coffee shop, along with the capital improvement program document, are posted with the meeting agenda at farmgov.com/City-Services/Government/Agendas-and-Minutes/Planning/2019.aspx.

FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Kenai City Manager Paul Ostrander offered details to KSRM on how the city of Kenai plans to spend their allotted Federal CARES Act funding. The City Manager discussed how the federally allocated money made its way to Kenai: “Governor Dunleavy put together a plan to allocate those funds and $568 million went to local municipalities. So, that’s all of the municipalities and the boroughs in the state. For example, the Kenai Peninsula Borough received $37 million. The city of Kenai received $7.7 million. The city of Soldotna received a similar amount. So, every municipality received these funds.” How do folks qualify for money? Larry Persily offered details: “Well, any business that has a physical location in the city of Kenai and any non-profit that operates and provides services in Kenai even if the non-profit office may be across the street from the border – that’s the main criteria, not profits or are they an IRS 501 non-profit, or other…clearly they qualify as a non-profit that provides community services. He added that the intent of the money was very clear from the start: “The guidance that was provided, the original intent of the CARES Act was to get thsi money out quickly, to get it out to benefit the small businesses, non-profits, and individuals in your communities. So, the city of Kenai, rather than trying to focus on how or why we can get this money to fill the city coffers, really took it immediately and said we need to follow the intent of the CARES Act and get this money out quickly, we need to benefit those folks who have been impacted by COVID-19. As soon as we got notice of the amount of our grant, we took an ordinance to the council – we introduced it and heard it in one meeting. That’s not something we typically do. In two weeks, we put together this program that is intended to provide grants for small businesses and non-profits in the city of Kenai.” For more details, visit the City of Kenai’s website.

And the Punjabi diaspora across the globe stays true to that claim. Known to be courageous and enterprising, many Punjabis have made a mark globally. simply punjabi brings to you five such people who are achievers in their respective fields and are currently in the news. Though they are settled in different countries, their hearts beat for their soil in Punjab.Gill with his Italian shotgunSohrab Singh Gill, 23, shooterHe romances the gun and shooting is his passion. Sohrab Singh Gill grew up with guns all around him-his father Paramdeep Singh Gill is a Jammu and Kashmir-cadre Indian Police Service officer who served most of his term in the strife-torn valley and is today the director general of Punjab Police.”The guns and their sound fascinated me,” says Gill who took to shooting seriously at 16. “I started with rifle shooting but gradually began liking the shotgun. It was challenging shooting at flying targets,” says Gill. He is the only Indian to have won an international skeet medal at any event held outside India.Gill, currently pursuing his LLB from Chandigarh’s Panjab University, took it up as he could devote more time for his shooting. For four hours every day Gill practices his aim. The game demands a high level of concentration. “Also, you need good eye-hand coordination,” says Gill. Shooting, says Gill, is a very unforgiving sport: “You miss out on certain events and you are gone. You have to work hard throughout.”advertisementTuli shows off his invention, the UbisurferSuneet S. Tuli, 42, businessmanIt’s rather uncommon to find a mix of entrepreneurial moxie and humility in anyone. But Toronto-based Suneet Singh Tuli is an exception. Meet the man who virtually has the world in his palm. Aimed at leading an internet revolution in India he recently launched the Ubisurfer with free Internet. Tuli, the founder and CEO of DataWind Ltd, has had 20 years as an entrepreneur.Last few years Tuli has been focussed on providing affordable Internet to the consumer. He knows not all Indians can afford to spend over Rs 25,000 on a computer and an additional few thousands on an Internet connection. Hence, he has priced his UbiSurfer, (an internet-connected netbook) at an affordable Rs 7,999. Apart from being a netbook, it includes a CDMA modem Tata SIM and a free Internet connection for a year at 30 hours per month. “India is a different market with vast volumes and different needs. Now only a small portion have access to the net which ought to grow exponentially,” says Tuli, confident that the combination of fast and free access to the net will be a winner here.Brar on the sets of his filmKaran Brar, 11, actorHis teachers often visit him on the sets and his parents and grandparents just can’t keep the smile off their faces.

Born into an intellectual sikh family in Chandigarh, Momi, a sensitive, shy child, showed an early talent for artistic expression. Thereafter, Momi earned her bachelors degree in art.”As a young woman, I was passionate about art,” says Momi, and adds, “My favourites were figure drawings and cubist paintings, techniques that have strongly influenced my painting style.”However, Momi lost touch with her artistic side when she got married and moved to California at 22. Rigid and orthodox, her in-laws didn’t allow her to pursue her passion or to step outside. However, on a neighbour’s suggestion of becoming a manicurist, the in-laws saw her as a money-maker and relented.After her divorce, Tanya was shunned by the women of her own community and propositioned by men. “I wasn’t swept asunder because of the faith in my gurus. In fact, many of my paintings display passages from the Guru Granth Sahib,” says Momi. Today, she has finished nearly 300 unique paintings. “I don’t have any artists I relate to,” she says. “My life is my inspiration.” n by Arvind Chhabra, Monita Sharma and Anandita Gupta
