Mudville (band)

Mudville is a Brooklyn, NY-based band and artist collective whose sound, a hybrid of downtempo, Memphis-style soul and jazz was dubbed, "post-trip hop" by John Donohue of The New Yorker. Core members Marilyn Carino and Ben Rubin have distinguished themselves as adding sophistication to the genre with classic Hip hop stylings, elements of improvisational free jazz and attention to songcraft more influenced by Marvin Gaye and Duke Ellington than the minimalist, pop-based structure and lyrics by which the genre is most characterized; the New York Post has lauded Mudville's "poetic lyrics, filled with imagery" and "otherworldly, blues-jazz feel" and Time Out New York characterized the band's live sound as "brainy, extended improvs... a potent fusion of jazz and space-rock. The brainchild of bassist/producer Rubin and vocalist/songwriter Carino, Mudville began in San Francisco as a more straightforward rock band that prominently featured Hammond B3 organ. One independently-released CD was recorded in 1997 under Marilyn Carino's name, titled Long Island Lulu.

Upon relocating to New York in 2000, Carino and Rubin began collaborating on songs with Carino writing lyrics and melodies and Rubin producing tracks using a combination of painstakingly-arranged live instruments and digital sampling. Carino is known for her "serious chops", limber contralto voice and expressive phrasing, compared to Annie Lennox, Nina Simone and Sarah Vaughan, for her poetic, progressive-minded prose, which has drawn comparisons to that of Radiohead and R. E. M.. She has co-written and sung on tracks produced by Sly and Robbie. Benny Cha Cha has been a bassist for numerous Jazz and Rock greats, including Ronnie Cuber, Bill Frisell, Jim Campilongo and Marshall Crenshaw, has distinguished himself as a remix artist who has worked with the Wu-Tang Clan's Killah Priest, Karsh Kale and Brazilian Girls; the duo have recorded an EP, 2003's four-song Mudville, which featured one track, "High Rise", co-produced by Billy Talbot, bassist of Neil Young and Crazy Horse, two full-length recordings.

E. M. Bassist Mike Mills on piano, Telecaster maestro Jim Campilongo on guitar, percussionist/producer Karsh Kale, Bob Dylan pedal-steel guitarist Buddy Cage, the Ethel string quartet and saxophonist and former Lounge Lizard Michael Blake. American Songwriter magazine called Iris Nova "a pageantry of maturing sounds and measures, confident attitudes and different genres" and Rhapsody deemed it "a perfect melding, as if Nina Simone came back from the dead to front Morcheeba on a new record". In 2015, the band released a new track, "Someone Else," which served as the end credits music for director Nelson Kim's debut feature film Someone Else. Mudville's live band since 2005 has consisted of John Walter Bollinger on drums and Brian Charette on keyboards and guitar. Mudville is known for collaborations with artists of many disciplines, doing experimental projects with up-and-coming New York videographers and clothing designers and performing with a contortionist. In 2008, they won Best Dance/Electronica Song at the Independent Music Awards with their song "Wicked".

Jagadhri is a city and a municipal council in the Yamunanagar district of the Indian state of Haryana. This town lies adjacent to the city of Yamunanagar; the demarcation line between the two is difficult to discern. Jagadhri is around 100 km away from Chandigarh, the capital city of Haryana state. Jagadhri, corrupted form of its old name Yugandhari, was named after the king of the Yugandharas. Yugandharas find mention in Mahabharata as well as Buddhist texts as region with warriors or mountains. Yugandhara was used for a region inhabited by a tribe of that name and it comprised some mountainous tracts which were given the same name. Excavations have found the punch marked square coins, a Greek hemidrachm coin of Indo-Greek king Apollodotus I or Apollodotus II and one of Antimachus I/Antimachus II, a gold coin of Samudragupta and other coins of the period up to the Prithviraj Chauhan and Tomara dynasty kings of Delhi, it was the capital city of a Janapada. There are few places which have signs of Ashoka like Topra kalan, Chaneti and Lohgarh.

Topra kalan is the place where the Ashoka pillar having Pali inscriptions was installed by Ashoka. This pillar was uprooted by Mughal invader Ferozeshah Tughlaq and was moved to Delhi and reinstalled. Chaneti has one full size Buddhist stupa excavated similar to those found in sarnath. Sugh had signs of Buddhism which have been razed by local natives. Lohgarh is the place where Banda Singh Bahadur established the first Sikh capital of the world and the Sikh kingdom coins were minted here; the town was known for its metal work and brass ware including utensils. Nowadays production of brass ware has fallen off, due to high costs and the city has transitioned to the manufacture of aluminium and stainless steel products. Moreover, Jagadhri has witnessed the growth of a new timber trade in the last decade. There are many old temples, such as LathMar Mandir, Khera Mandir, Gauri Shankar Mandir and Guga Madi Mandir, Devi Mandir; as of 2011 Indian Census, Jagadhri had 26,716 households with a total population of 124,894 of which 67,685 were male and 57,209 were females.

Population within the age group of 0 to 6 years was 14,011. The total number of literates in Jagadhri was 94,468, which constituted 75.6% of the population with male literacy of 78.3% and female literacy of 72.5%. The effective literacy rate of 7+ population of Jagadhri was 85.2%, of which male literacy rate was 88.3% and female literacy rate was 81.5%. The Scheduled Castes population was 15,460. Tajewala Barrage, completed in 1873, is where the Yamuna loses its waters to the Western and Eastern Yamuna Canals that supply water for irrigation and the Delhi waterworks; the Tajewala was replaced by the Hathnikund Barrage in 1999. Buria is a famous town situated 8 km away from Jagadhari, it is constructed Rang-Mahal. Many people guess the relation of ` Rang-Mahal' to one of the Navaratnas of Akbar. Buria is known as Buria Sahib because of a well-known Gurudwara related to Guru Teg Bahadur, ninth guru of Sikhs. An old Shiva Temple is located in Buria. In nearby Dayalgarh, is the renovated old temple of Shree Paataaleshvar Mahadev with a garden and some ashrams of saints made during medieval times.

Bilaspur town, named after the writer of the Mahabharata - Maharishi Vyasa, is a historical place. It is supposed; the statue of Uma Mahadev made in 9th-10th century, statue of Ganesha made in 11th-12th century and remains of Gupta Empire prove the antecedence of Kapalmochan. People come from all parts of the country feel spiritual elevated by taking holy bath here in ponds known as Rinmochan and Surya kund. There is a Hindu temple and Gurudawara of Dasham patshahi where the tenth guru of the Sikhs Sri Guru Gobind Singh ji stayed. On the occasion of Guru Nanak Dev Jayanti, a huge gathering of devotees of both Sikh and Hindu origin takes place; the temple is situated on the road coming from Bilaspur to Chhachhrauli, 4 km away from Bilaspur and attracts large numbers of people. This temple has a Vigrah of ShriHanuman Ji with five faces, contributing to temple's name, Panchmukhi, it is believed. It is believed that the five Pandavas visited this place and prayed to Lord Hanuman by creating his five faces.

The premises of the Temple has been renovated during the recent years and has good facilities for the devotees. The main tehsil 11 km from Jagadhri. In the past it was the capital of the Sikh state of Kalsia. Created by Raja Gurbaksh Singh in 1763. Today'Ravi Mahal', Janak Niwas and the fort have their own dignity. There is a Sainik Parivar Bhawan & Bal-kunj social welfare institution at Chhachrauli, it is known as "Cherapunjji of Haryana". This village is situated north east from Chhachhrauli near Kalesar - it is supposed to be connected with King Shantanu of Mahabharata, it lies 23 km north of Yamuna Nagar town. It is about 2 km from the nearest village Kathgarh. Located in the foothills of the Shivalik Hills, it has the Adi-Badri Narayana, Shri Kedar Nath and Mantra Devi Temples in the background. Three mounds of antiquities have been excavated by the Archaeological Survey of India. Chaneti Buddhist Stupa is situated 3 km away from Jagadhri, it is round in shape, made of bricks, 8 meters in height, in the area of about 100 sq meters, is an old Buddhist Stupa.

According to Hieun Tsang, this was built by the King As

Epistles (Plato)

The Epistles of Plato are a series of thirteen letters traditionally included in the Platonic corpus. Their authenticity has been the subject of some dispute, scholarly consensus has shifted back and forth over time, they were "generally accepted as genuine until modern times". Now every letter except the First has some defenders of its authenticity; the Twelfth is widely regarded as a forgery, the Fifth and Ninth have fewer supporters than the others. The Epistles focus on Plato's time in Syracuse and his influence on the political figures Dion and Dionysius, they are biographical rather than philosophical, although several, notably the Seventh Letter, gesture at the doctrines of Plato's philosophy. Only two, the Second and Seventh, directly reference Plato's teacher Socrates, the major figure within his philosophical dialogues; the two letters that are most claimed to have been written by Plato are the Seventh and the Eighth, on the supposition that these were open letters and therefore less to be the result of invention or forgery.

This is not so much because of a presumption in favor of an open letter's authenticity as because of a presumption against that of a private letter: the preservation of the former is unsurprising, while the preservation and eventual publication of the latter requires some sort of explanation. The Seventh Letter has been argued to be spurious by prominent scholars, such as Malcolm Schofield, Myles Burnyeat, Julia Annas. George Boas argues that all of the Epistles, including the Seventh, are spurious, a conclusion accepted and more by Terence Irwin. On the other hand, Raeder, Novotny and Bluck reject only the First; the other letters enjoy varying levels of acceptance among scholars. The Sixth and Eleventh have the greatest support of the remaining letters, followed by the Fourth, Tenth and Second Letter. Apart from the Epistles we know a good deal. Besides what we may infer from the dialogues, we have one or two statements resting on the authority of Hermodoros, a member of the Academy in Plato’s time, these give us certain fixed points to start from.

The Lives are entirely mythical. It is conceivable that they may contain one or two stray facts derived from older sources now lost, but their general character is such that it is safer to neglect them in the first instance; the Eptstles on the other hand, are free from this mythology, the more remarkable as Plato’s own nephew, Speusippos credited him with a miraculous birth. If the Eptstles are forgeries, they are at least the work of a sober and well-informed writer, whose use of the Attic dialect proves him to have been Plato’s contemporary, it would have been impossible to find anyone fifty years who could handle the language as he does. The oldest and most successful of the spurious dialogues betray themselves at every turn. We may, indeed, go so far as to say that the supposed forger of the Epistles must have been a man of unparalleled literary skill, or he could not have reproduced so many of the little peculiarities that marked Plato’s style at the time of his life to which the Epistles profess to belong, though with just those shades of difference we should expect to find in letters as contrasted with more elaborate literary work.

I believe that all the letters of any importance are Plato’s, I shall therefore make use of them. As, there are still eminent scholars who are not convinced, I shall warn the reader when I have occasion to do so; the genuineness of the Eptstles has been maintained by scholars like Bentley and Cobet, by historians like Grote and E. Meyer In practice most accounts of Plato depend on them, though, disguised by the custom of referring instead to Plutarch’s Life of Dton Plutarch, however, is dependent on the Eptstles for most, if not all, of what he tells us. I should add that the First Epistle stands by itself In my judgement, it has got into Its present place by mistake, it is a genuine fourth-century letter, but I do not think the writer, whoever he was, meant to pass for Plato at all. I do not think either that he was Dion or meant to pass for Dion." The numbering of each letter is due to their placement in traditional manuscripts, does not appear to follow any discernible principle. L. A. Post, in his edition of the Thirteen Epistles of Plato, presented them in the order in which he thought they were written: Thirteenth, Eleventh, Fourth, Seventh and Sixth.

The addressees of the Epistles fall into three main categories. Four are addressed to Dionysius II of Syracuse, four to Dionysius' uncle Dion and his associates, five to various others; the First Letter is addressed to Dionysius II of Syracuse, is certainly a forgery. In it, Plato complains
