Buddy Bolden

Charles Joseph "Buddy" Bolden was an African-American cornetist, regarded by contemporaries as a key figure in the development of a New Orleans style of ragtime music, or "jass", which came to be known as jazz. Bolden's father, Westmore Bolden, worked as a "driver" for William Walker, the former master of Buddy's grandfather Gustavus Bolden at the time of Buddy's birth, his father died when Buddy was six, after which the boy lived with his family members. In records of the period the family name is variously spelled Bolen, Bolding and Bolden, thus complicating research. Buddy attended Fisk School in New Orleans, though evidence is circumstantial, as early records of this and other local schools are missing. Bolden was known as "King" Bolden, his band was popular in New Orleans from around 1900 to 1907, he was known for his loud sound and improvisational skills, his style had an impact on younger musicians. Bolden's trombonist Willie Cornish recalled making phonograph cylinder recordings with the Bolden band, but there are no known surviving copies.

Many early jazz musicians credited Bolden and his bandmates with having originated what came to be known as jazz, though the term was not in common musical use until after the era of Bolden's prominence. At least one writer has labeled Bolden the father of jazz, he is credited with adding blues. He was said to have adapted ideas from gospel music heard in uptown African-American Baptist churches. Instead of imitating other cornetists, Bolden played music he heard "by ear" and adapted it to his horn. In doing so, he created an exciting and novel fusion of ragtime, black sacred music, marching-band music, rural blues, he rearranged the typical New Orleans dance band of the time to better accommodate the blues: string instruments became the rhythm section, the front-line instruments were clarinets and Bolden's cornet. Bolden was known for his loud, "wide open" playing style. Joe "King" Oliver, Freddie Keppard, Bunk Johnson, other early New Orleans jazz musicians were directly inspired by his playing.

No known recordings of Bolden have survived. His trombonist Willy Cornish asserted that Bolden's band had made at least one phonograph cylinder in the late 1890s. Three other old-time New Orleans musicians, George Baquet, Alphonse Picou and Bob Lyons remembered a recording session in the early 1900s; the researcher Tim Brooks believes that these cylinders, if they existed, may have been recorded for local music dealers and were never commercially distributed. Some of the songs first associated with his band, such as the traditional song "Careless Love" and "My Bucket's Got a Hole in It", are still standards. Bolden closed his shows with the original number "Get Out of Here and Go Home", although for more "polite" gigs, the last number would be "Home! Sweet Home!". One of the most famous Bolden numbers is "Funky Butt", which represents one of the earliest references to the concept of funk in popular music. Bolden's "Funky Butt" was, as Danny Barker once put it, a reference to the olfactory effect of an auditorium packed full of sweaty people "dancing close together and belly rubbing."

"Funky Butt" was one of many in the Bolden repertory with rude or off-color lyrics popular in some of the rougher places where he played. It became so well known as a rude song that whistling the melody on a public street was considered offensive; the melody was incorporated into an early published ragtime number, "St. Louis Tickle."Bolden is credited with the invention of the "Big Four", a key rhythmic innovation on the marching band beat, which gave embryonic jazz much more room for individual improvisation. As Wynton Marsalis explains, the big four was the first syncopated bass drum pattern to deviate from the standard on-the-beat march; the second half of the Big Four is the pattern known as the hambone rhythm developed from sub-Saharan African music traditions. Bolden suffered an episode of acute alcoholic psychosis in 1907 at age 30. With the full diagnosis of dementia praecox, he was admitted to the Louisiana State Insane Asylum at Jackson, a mental institution, where he spent the rest of his life.

While there is substantial first-hand oral history about Bolden, facts about his life continue to be lost amidst colorful myth. Stories about his being a barber by trade or that he published a scandal sheet called The Cricket have been repeated in print despite being debunked decades earlier Sidney Bechet wrote and composed "Buddy Bolden Stomp" in Bolden's honor. Duke Ellington paid tribute to Bolden in his 1957 suite A Drum Is a Woman; the trumpet part was taken by Clark Terry. The Bolden band tune "Funky Butt", better known as "Buddy Bolden's Blues" since it was first recorded under that title by Jelly Roll Morton, alternatively titled "I Thought I Heard Buddy Bolden Say," has been covered by hundreds of artists, including Dr. John, on his album Goin' Back to New Orleans, Hugh Laurie, on his album Let Them Talk. "Hey, Buddy Bolden" is a song on the album Nina Simone Sings Ellington. Wynton Marsalis speaks about Bolden in an introduction and performs "Buddy Bolden" on his album Live at the Village Vanguard.

The Buddyprisen, or Buddy Award, is the prime award honoring Norwegian jazz

List of pipeline accidents in the United States in 2014

The following is a list of pipeline accidents in the United States in 2014. It is one of several lists of U. S. pipeline accidents. See list of natural gas and oil production accidents in the United States; this is not a complete list of all pipeline accidents. For natural gas alone, the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, a United States Department of Transportation agency, has collected data on more than 3,200 accidents deemed serious or significant since 1987. A "significant incident" results in any of the following consequences: fatality or injury requiring in-patient hospitalization $50,000 or more in total costs, measured in 1984 dollars liquid releases of five or more barrels releases resulting in an unintentional fire or explosionPHMSA and the National Transportation Safety Board post incident data and results of investigations into accidents involving pipelines that carry a variety of products, including natural gas, diesel fuel, kerosene, jet fuel, carbon dioxide, other substances.

Pipelines are repurposed to carry different products. On January 7, a Colonial Pipeline line leak resulted from equipment failure in Fountain Inn, South Carolina, spilling about 52,000 gallons of petroleum product, of which around 8,000 gallons was not recovered. On January 10, a 12-inch PSNC gas transmission pipeline exploded and burned in Asheville, North Carolina; the cause was damage to the pipeline during installation in 2003. There were no injuries, but the costs of property damage was around $825,000. On January 29, about 600 people were evacauted from their homes & businesses, after the gas distribution system were over pressurized, in Lansing, Michigan. On February 10, a gas pipeline burned near Tioga, North Dakota. There were no injuries. On February 13, a 30-inch diameter Columbia Gulf Transmission gas pipeline carrying natural gas exploded near Knifley, sending two people to the hospital with injuries, destroying two houses, alarming residents, who saw flames from miles away, it was determined that Hydrogen embrittlement had caused the pipe failure from when the pipeline was installed in 1965.

On February 19, a leaking gas main caused a gas build up in a nearby rowhouse, that exploded in, killing one youth, injuring another walking by the area. 3 other people had minor injuries. The area on the gas main near the leak had been patched twice in previous months. On March 6, contractors working for Shell Oil Company hit Shell's Houston-to-Houma crude oil pipeline near Port Neches, spilling 364 barrels of crude oil. 2014 East Harlem gas explosion: On March 12, there was a gas explosion in New York City, New York. NTSB investigators found natural gas in the soil nearby, indicating that the gas leak had existed for a while before the explosion. On March 17, a 20-inch Mid-Valley Pipeline Company pipeline failed in Hamilton County, spilling about 18,900 gallons of crude oil into an adjacent wildlife preserve. Animals in the area were affected; the cause was environmental cracking. On March 18, a 3-inch, half-mile flare waste gas pipeline in a neighborhood in Arvin, was discovered leaking, a few blocks from Arvin High School, in a residential area.

It had been leaking for as long as two years. On March 31, a pipeline running to a Williams Companies LNG storage facility in Plymouth, Washington exploded and sent shrapnel flying that ruptured an LNG storage tank. Nearly 1,000 residents were evacuated and at least five employees at the facility were injured. A 12-inch Williams Companies gas pipeline failed at a weld in West Virginia; the following explosion and fire explosion scorched trees over a 2-acre area near Moundsville. Several houses were evacuated as a precaution. There were no injuries reported. On April 17, a private excavator accidentally cut a gas line while doing some work in Union Township, Licking County, Ohio on April 17; the man suffered second degree burns to the upper portion of his body. There was no damage to any buildings. On April 23, an explosion and fire hit a Williams Companies gas processing plant in Wyoming. All 95 residents of the town were evacuated, part of US Highway 30 was closed for a time. On May 6, Sinclair Oil Corporation pipeline operators detected a pressure drop on a pipeline, with the problem being traced two days to a leak in Knox County, Missouri.

A mixture of gasoline and diesel fuel contaminated soil on a farm. On May 12, three workers from Plantation Pipeline inadvertently ruptured their pipeline at a pump station in Anderson County, South Carolina, causing a geyser of gasoline, spraying the workers with it. There was no fire. On May 17, at Port St. John, Kinder Morgan's 36" Florida Gas Transmission pipeline ruptured, forcing evacuation of seven homes and halting train traffic through Brevard Co. for three hours near the Florida Power & Light plant. Florida Gas Transmission workers searched for a leak. Homes and train traffic were reopened after the remaining gas escaped from the pipe; this pipeline failure caused $177,321 in property damage. On June 26, near East Bernard, Texas, a gas pipeline adjacent to a Kinder Morgan gas compressor plant blew out, destroying the roadway and setting a nearby truck on fire just south of Highway 59. Flames as high as 150 feet were shooting out of the pipeline; the focus was on a 27-inch pipeline. On July 10, a vent stack at a Williams Field Services gas pipeline compressor station in Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania caught fire.

Only minor damage was reported at other parts of the station. On July 23, in Milledgeville, Midway

South Schleswig Voters' Association

The South Schleswig Voters' Association is a regionalist political party in Schleswig-Holstein in northern Germany. The party represents the Frisian minorities of the state; as a party representing a national minority, the SSW declines to identify itself with a left-right political scale, but it models its policies on those of the Nordic countries, which means favouring a strong welfare state, but, on the other hand, a more free market labour policy than the German social market economy model. The SSW is represented in the Landtag of Schleswig-Holstein and several regional and municipal councils; the party has not contested any federal elections in Germany since 1965. As a party for the national Danish minority in Southern Schleswig, the SSW is not subject to the general requirement of passing a 5% vote threshold to gain proportional seats in either the state parliament or the federal German parliament. In the most recent 2017 state election, the SSW received 3.3 % of three seats. In the 2005 state election the SSW received 3.6%.

This was enough for the SSW to hold the balance of power between the national parties of the left and right, the SSW chose to support a coalition of the Social Democratic Party of Germany and The Greens, without joining the coalition itself. This resulted in criticism from the Christian Democratic Union and from German national conservative circles, who asserted that since the SSW had been granted a special status, it was obliged to defend only minority interests, that its status should be revoked if the SSW behaved like a "regular" party; the SSW representatives, insisted on the full value of their parliamentary seats and their equal rights as German citizens. One particular point was that the SSW had taken a strong position on educational principles in the state; the CDU argued that since there were separate Danish-language schools, it was unreasonable for the SSW to involve itself in the affairs of the public schools. As the planned SPD-Greens coalition did not make it into office after the 2009 state election, a centre-right coalition was formed between the CDU and Free Democratic Party, the SSW joined the opposition.

In the 2012 state election, the SSW gained 4.6 % of three seats in the state Landtag. A coalition of the SPD, Greens and SSW was concluded in June 2012, the former parliamentary leader, Anke Spoorendonk, was appointed Minister for Culture and European Affairs; this was the first time in German history that a minority party had participated in a state government. The new coalition government has plenty of nicknames, for instance "Dänen-Ampel", "Schleswig-Holstein-Ampel", "rot-grün-blaue Koalition" or "rød-grøn-blå koalition", "Küstenkoalition" and "Nord-Ampel"; the Youth in the SSW is the youth wing of the South Schleswig Voter Federation. The current Chairman of the committee is Christopher Andresen. SSW in English Youth in the SSW Website

Grande grande grande

"Grande grande grande" is a 1972 Italian song, written by Alberto Testa and Tony Renis. It was a No. 1 hit for Mina in Italy and for Shirley Bassey released as "Never Never Never" in the U. K. U. S. and Australia. The 1973 Shirley Bassey single achieved sales of over 50,000 copies in Australia, being eligible for the award of a Gold Disc. "Grande grande grande" was a No. 1 hit on the Italian Singles Chart for Mina in 1972, from her No. 1 self-titled album. The single was released in early 1972 and entered the Top 10 the week of February 26.... It was thanks to the work of a young bass guitar player, Pino Presti, who offered a more modern musical arrangement, that made Mina agree to performing it. After a steady climb to No. 2 the week of March 11, the song seemed to have run out of steam after falling 2 places to No. 4 to new hits by Delirium, Nicola Di Bari and Nada. By April 1, the song had once again climbed to its peak No. 2 position where it remained the whole month of April before reaching No. 1 on April 29.

"Grande grande grande", arranged by Pino Presti, ruled the charts the first three weeks of May until "I giardini di marzo" by her collaborator Lucio Battisti, her own hit "Parole parole" knocked it out of the top spot down to No. 3 the week of May 27. "Grande grande grande" remained in the top 10 until the week of July 8 trading places with "Parole parole". By the year's end, only "Il Padrino" by Santo and Johnny had enjoyed a longer life on the charts and Mina had to settle for the runner up position for 1972's biggest hit on the Italian singles chart. Mina recorded the song in English.

It was No. 1 in Australia, No. 1 in South Africa, No. 3 in Singapore, her only single to make three US charts: No. 48 on the Billboard Hot 100, No. 8 on the Adult Contemporary Chart, No. 67 on the R&B Chart.
