Renacer (Senses Fail album)

Renacer is the fifth studio album by American post-hardcore band Senses Fail released on March 26, 2013. It is the first album without founding member and guitarist Garrett Zablocki, Matt Smith joined as his replacement. Jason Black, the band's bassist did not participate in the writing/recording of the album due to obligations with Hot Water Music, Zack Roach instead performed bass on the album, it is the last album to feature long time drummer, Dan Trapp, as he parted ways with the band in late 2014. The album is the first Senses Fail album to explore heavier sounds, such as metalcore, hardcore punk, sludge metal. In January 2011, founding guitarist Garrett Zablocki left the group and was replaced by Matt Smith of Strike Anywhere. After a UK tour in February and a US tour in March, the group hung out in the following season playing shows. During this time, they met up to figure out the new writing process between existing guitarist Zach Roach and the newly-added Smith to see how things would play out, rather than writing new material.

In February 2012, the band started writing for their next album. In April, vocalist Buddy Nielsen revealed that the group planned to record following their stint on the Warped Tour, they had been writing new material on and off for sometime, were aiming to continue writing during Warped Tour. In addition, they expected to have a new album out by February or March 2013. While on Warped Tour, the group released a best-of compilation Follow Your Bliss: The Best of Senses Fail. On their tour bus, they set up a V-drum kit in the back lounge of their tour bus and would take turns jamming with drummer Dan Trapp, they shared the rough ideas of from each day with the rest of the members and rework them over a period of time. Following the tour's conclusion and Trapp spent time in a mutual friend's studio making demos for future reference. Sessions for their new album took place in California with producer Shaun Lopez; the band opted to work with Lopez, as opposed to Brian McTernan, who produced the group's preceding three studio albums, as they "needed to change everything up", according to Nielsen.

He theorised they wouldn't have written the songs they did if they knew they'd be using McTernan again. Both Nielsen and Trapp wanted to record in a different studio. Nielsen said Lopez's prior experience with Far and Deftones was "perfect for where we were trying to go." Recording started on November 13, 2012. That same day, Smith laid down scratch guitar for the songs; the group took November 19. The following day, they relocated to Lopez's The Airport Studio to track bass, done by November 23. Roach remarked they felt like "kids in a candy store" as Lopez's studio had around 30 guitars and hundreds of vintage guitar pedals they could work with, they tracked rhythm guitars and vocals into early December with guitars being done until 8pm, by which point they'd shift to vocals. With most of the guitars done, the group minus Nielsen would spend time relaxing at their apartment or looking around Los Angeles, before going back to the studio to hear Nielsen's vocals. Roach and Smith flew home, leaving Nielsen and Trapp to finish minor parts and supervise the mixing process.

According to the band's bio-page on Staple Records, the album title Renacer means "to be reborn" in Spanish. This serves as the main theme of the album as Nielsen wanted to take a heavier and more adventurous creative direction. "Mi Amor" is sung in Spanish, Nielsen stated: "We have always wanted to do a song in Spanish... I was searching for a different type of screaming pattern for the song and decided to try to write a line or two in Spanish—just to see if it would spark an idea. I went line by line translating from English to Spanish—all the while making sure the rhyme scheme worked out and it made sense, it came together so well that I just rolled with it.”. "The Path" is about approaching life with a positive attitude. Renacer features a heavier melodic hardcore and metalcore sound, in contrast to earlier albums' post-hardcore sound, they had removed all of the pop elements, replaced them with hardcore riffs and breakdowns. It has elements of sludge metal. About the sound of the new album, Nielsen stated he had always wanted to move away from the pop-orientated sound to a "heavier and more exploratory " as he wanted there to be more "space, because we wanted the record to sound heavy and open.

If you want something to sound heavy, it’s about the space, not just the chord structures or the screaming." He said the stylistic change was down to the new song writers in the group, in addition to his urge for a new sound. Nielsen had explored hardcore with Bayonet in 2009, it was a side project that served as a collaboration between Nielsen and the Banner guitarist Jeremy Comitas, who co-wrote with the group for Renacer. On January 14, 2013, Renacer was announced for release in March. "Mi Amor" was released as a single on February 4. On March 1, "The Path" was made available for streaming. A trailer for the album was released on March 15. Renacer was made available for streaming via MTV on March 20, before being released on March 26 through Vagrant Records imprint Staple Records. A music video was released for "Mi Amor" on April 10, directed by Behn Fannin; the video features a panda bear coming to life. Neilsen described the idea behind it as wishing to make something which would "spur people to watch the video more than once."

The two ways he thought would accomplish this was by having shock value or being funny, with the latter being c

Parakaryon myojinensis

Parakaryon myojinensis known as the Myojin parakaryote, is a unusual species of single-celled organism known from a single specimen, described in 2012. It has features of both prokaryotes and eukaryotes but is distinct from either group, making it unique among organisms so far discovered, it is the sole species in the genus Parakaryon. The generic name Parakaryon comes from Greek παρά and κάρυον, reflects its distinction from eukaryotes and prokaryotes; the specific name myojinensis reflects the locality. It is not clear whether P. myojinensis can be classified as a eukaryote or a prokaryote, the two categories to which all other cellular life belongs. Like eukaryotes and unlike prokaryotes, P. myojinensis endosymbionts. However, the nuclear membrane is a single layer, not a double layer as in eukaryotes, the DNA is stored in filaments rather than linear chromosomes. Furthermore, there is no endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi apparatus, mitochondria, or nuclear pores. Ribosomes are found not only in the cytoplasm but in the nucleus.

Adding to the difficulties of classification, only one instance of this organism has been discovered to date, so scientists have not been able to study it further.

Geisel valley

The Geisel valley is a valley in Saxony-Anhalt, situated west of Merseburg, Saalekreis district. It is named after the River Geisel which rises in Mücheln and is a tributary of the Saale, just under 25 km long, its main settlements are Braunsbedra and Mücheln, which in the future will merge into the'collective municipality' of Geiseltal. The Geisel valley was quarried for coal from 1698 until the mines were closed in 1994. Only twelve smaller pits emerged at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution in the late 19th century, which spread to large areas. At the beginning of the twentieth century, the region was characterized by independent pits. In the course of the further processing of coal, nine briquetting plants were built; the immense coal deposits in the Geisel Valley and its favorable transport conditions led to the development of several chemical plants settled. BASF constructed construction of the ammonia plant Merseburg of BASF with its subsidiary Buna-Werke, the world's first synthetic rubber producer, as well as the mineral oil plant built by Wintershall AG from 1936, is significant in this context Lützkendorf, a plant for fuel and lubrication oil production.

After the Second World War, there was a further intensification of the dismantling. The Mächeln opencast mine, founded in 1949 by merging several existing abbeys, charred the western Geisel Valley, while the opencast mining Großkayna, founded 1949 and Kayna-Süd. Founded in 1948, in the excavation operation encountered large open-pit open-cast mining in Großkayna to a depth of 130 m in the open-cast mining area Mücheln up to 70 m. In the 1990s, the embankments of the Mücheln opencast mine were moved; the completion of these measures began on June 30, 2003 with the flooding of the remaining hole to the Geiseltalsee, which on April 26, 2011, has a water level at 98 m above sea level. As of 2015, the lake occupied an area of 18.9 km2, which makes it the twelfth largest lake in Germany. Subsequently, the open-cast mine Kayna-Süd was shut down and rehabilitated as early as 1972, resulting in the Südfeldsee with 2.6 km2 of water surface. The excavation work in Großkayna had been completed in 1965 and the remaining hole was used until 1995 as a rinsing dump for waste from the Leuna and Buna plants and flooded to a 2.1 km2 lake.

Both of today's lakes are separated from the Geiseltalsee by a tipping dam up to 140 m Open-cast mining activities ended in the late 1990s, subsequently, nature has reclaimed part of the region. Favored by the position of the host valley in the wind shadow of the Harz creates a special microclimate characterized by a mild average annual average temperature and a low annual precipitation of about 500 mm; because of its location, it belongs to the Middle-German dry area. Due to the sandy soil, special flora and fauna community has re-emerged on the northern edge of the valley. In addition, the Geiseltalsee provides prerequisites for viticulture. On the north bank is an elevation, the south slope on 25% slope was removed; the north side will be protected by a forest. The valley is notable for its fossil record, it has yielded many important specimens of the Eocene including Propalaeotherium, Lophiodon, Asiatosuchus, Geoemyda and Psiloptera. It is the site of a notable Bronze Age deposit, known as the Frankleben hoard.

Archaeologists found fossils 251–243 million years old. Researchers discovered fossil remains of Straight-tusked_elephant; the valley near Rossbach, between Reichertswerben and Braunsbedra, was the site of the 5 November 1757 Battle of Rossbach between Prussia and the Allied Armies of France and contingents of the Holy Roman Empire, fighting on behalf of Duchy of Austria during the Seven Years' War. The battle had lasted less than 90 minutes but was instrumental in knocking France out of the Silesian theater of the Seven Years' War. Less than five percent of Frederick the Great's entire force had been engaged, it decisively defeated an army of 42,000. Frederick's use of operational maneuvers and with a fraction of his entire force—3,500 horsemen, 18 artillery pieces, 3 battalions of infantry—had defeated an entire army of two of the strongest European powers. Frederick's tactics at Rossbach became a landmark in the history of military art. During this battle, Friedrich Wilhelm von Seydlitz emerged as one of Frederick's greatest cavalry leaders.

Much of the battlefield was destroyed in the course of mining for lignite. The extensive open-cast mining operations caused fundamental changes in the landscape and the population: a total of 18 settlements and some 12,500 people were resettled over the time of the mining and manufacturing; some residents of Rossbach itself were resettled in 1963 and part of the town was destroyed by mining operations in 1963. Today, most of the battlefield is covered in some farmland, vineyards and a park created from flooding
