first_imgHue and CryFor a period in the late 1980s, Hue and Cry presented slices of pure pop pleasure which pretty much saw them played to death on every radio with an on/off switch.In celebration of the 25th Anniversary of Hue And Cry’s platinum selling album, Remote, (and it’s acoustic counterpart Bitter Suite) Hue And Cry will be touring as their stripped acoustic duo with Pat and Greg Kane, bringing you Remote Stripped.The brothers appear at Letterkenny’s An Grianan Theatre net Wednesday, April 16th Donegal Daily has two tickets for the show and all you have to do is to answer the question at the bottom of this article and sending it to [email protected] including your name, address and contact number.The performances will focus on the songs of both of the albums albums, stripped down to their emotional, acoustic core as well as a few surprises along the way.Hue And Cry burst onto the UK music scene in the late 1980’s with the outstandingly successful albums, Seduced and Abandoned and Remote.This period saw the band produce some of their most auspicious hit singles such as Labour Of Love, Violently, and Looking For Linda. Their award winning style of intellectual, yet appealing pop songs, fused with their unique brand of soulfulness gave rise to their continued success as the band advanced full steam ahead into the nineties, releasing acclaimed work which includes the chart-storming Top Ten album Stars Crash Down.A move away from the pop mainstream to concentrate on other projects saw Pat and Greg Kane make a triumphant return with the much applauded Open Soul which boasted an energetic and synergetic combination of the band’s classic ‘stripped down’ production.Extensive UK touring supported the release of Open Soul and February 2009 saw the release of a definitive selection of the band’s earlier work including hits, rare mixes, extended versions and B sides, entitled The Collection. The end of 2009 saw the release of Xmasday which contained a vibrant mixture of brand new Hue And Cry songs along with some classic songs and seasonal favourites.2012 marked the highly anticipated release of the studio album entitled Hot Wire. A collection of stunning early New Orleans funk inspired songs, from the brothers collective love of early 70’s and Funk and Soul Music.The result is a musical merge of complex melodies, harmonies and funk rhythms with a style that remains distinctive to Hue And Cry. The album contains sharp political and social commentary that is as relevant and poignant today, as it was with the release of the politically laced Labour Of Love in 1987. From reflections on the struggle of New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina in Duty To The Debtor to the loss of military lives within I Can Have It All. Hue And Cry have performed alongside some of the most prolific names in the business including U2, James Brown, Van Morrison, Madonna and Al Green, as well as playing to thousands on their own headline tours.Pat and Greg are very much looking forward to engaging with fans once again on tour in 2014. Hue And Cry have a long-term plan to stick around and continue to do what they do best – to engage, challenge, and entertain their fans … old and new.Hue And Cry have released 19 albums, and 22 singles, the most notable being Labour Of Love which reached No 6 in the UK, from their debut album, Seduced and Abandoned. (1987, UK No 22)Other UK hits included Looking For Linda (1989, UK No. 15) and Violently (Your Words Hit Me) an EP that reached No 21 – both from their second album Remote (1988, UK No 10).

Low heat shock thresholds in wild Antarctic intertidal limpets (Nacella concinna).

first_imgHeat shock proteins (HSPs) are a family of genes classically used to measure levels of organism stress. We have previously identified two HSP70 genes (HSP70A and HSP70B) in sub-tidal populations of the Antarctic limpet (Nacella concinna). These genes are up-regulated in response to increased seawater temperatures of 15°C or more during acute heat shock experiments, temperatures that have very little basis when considering the current Antarctic ecology of these animals. Therefore, the question was posed as to whether these animals could express HSP70 genes when subjected to more complex environmental conditions, such as those that occur in the inter-tidal. Inter-tidal limpets were collected on three occasions in different weather conditions at South Cove, Rothera Point, over a complete tidal cycle, and the expression levels of the HSP70 genes were measured. Both genes showed relative up-regulation of gene expression over the period of the tidal cycle. The average foot temperature of these animals was 3.3°C, far below that of the acute heat shock experiments. These experiments demonstrate that the temperature and expression levels of HSP production in wild animals cannot be accurately extrapolated from experimentally induced treatments, especially when considering the complexity of stressors in the natural environment. However, experimental manipulation can provide molecular markers for identifying stress in Antarctic molluscs, provided it is accompanied by environmental validation, as demonstrated here.last_img

Tropical convective transport and the Walker circulation

first_imgWe introduce a methodology to visualise rapid vertical and zonal tropical transport pathways. Using prescribed sea-surface temperatures in four monthly model integrations for 2005, we characterise preferred transport routes from the troposphere to the stratosphere in a high resolution climate model. Most efficient transport is modelled over the Maritime Continent (MC) in November and February, i.e., boreal winter. In these months, the ascending branch of the Walker Circulation over the MC is formed in conjunction with strong deep convection, allowing fast transport into the stratosphere. In the model the upper tropospheric zonal winds associated with the Walker Circulation are also greatest in these months in agreement with ERA-Interim reanalysis data. We conclude that the Walker circulation plays an important role in the seasonality of fast tropical transport from the lower and middle troposphere to the upper troposphere and so impacts at the same time the potential supply of surface emissions to the tropical tropopause layer (TTL) and subsequently to the stratosphere.last_img

NFL and players’ union agree to reduced team salary limits

first_img Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailEricVega/iStockBy CARMEN COX, ABC News(NEW YORK) — The NFL and the NFL Players Association have reached an agreement on team salary caps. On Wednesday, the league and its players’ union agreed to cap each team’s salary at $182.5 million in 2021 — down 8% from last season, according to a memo obtained by ESPN.In previous years, teams saw increasing salary caps as league revenues continued to rise. But as the COVID-19 pandemic forced city and statewide lockdowns, game attendance fell by 92% and caused a decline in 2020 revenues.Teams must comply with the new salary cap limits by next Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET — the start of the new league year. The decreased limits will likely mean teams will have to make difficult roster decisions and release a significantly high number of players into the free agent market to bring team salaries below the league’s required cap.As COVID restrictions relax and the NFL works to lock in new broadcasting deals, pro football attendance and revenues are expected to rebound in the 2021 season.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
