Entombed (band)

Entombed is a Swedish death metal band formed in 1987 under the name of Nihilist. Entombed began their career as an early pioneer of Scandinavian death metal which differed from its American counterpart by its distinct "buzzsaw" guitar tone. However, by the early 1990s their sound had broadened to include other influences; this new style would be described as death'n' roll. Entombed has been influenced by bands such as Slayer, Black Sabbath, Celtic Frost, Repulsion, The Misfits, Motörhead, Discharge and Testament. Along with Dismember and Unleashed, Entombed has been referred to as one of the "big four" of Swedish death metal. Entombed are rooted in the band Nihilist who were formed by drummer Nicke Andersson, guitarist Alex Hellid and bassist Leif Cuzner, who formed in 1987. After using a number of temporary vocalists for their initial shows, the band recruited L. G. Petrov, the drummer for the band Morbid, which featured Mayhem vocalist Dead; the band recruited Morbid's session guitarist Uffe Cederlund as a second guitarist, recorded a number of demos with tracks that would appear on Entombed's debut album.

Following increased tensions between band members, the majority of the band decided to rename themselves as Entombed rather than force these members out. Entombed's debut album Left Hand Path was released in 1990, a cult favorite that established them as a popular Swedish death metal band. Left Hand Path and its follow-up, were unique in that they featured what was sometimes referred to as a "buzz saw" guitar sound. Prior to the recording of Clandestine, Petrov was fired from the band due to personal disputes; the vocals on the album were recorded by Andersson instead, for the tour following the album's release in 1991, the band hired vocalist Johnny Dordevic a member of the band Carnage. Petrov reconciled with the band after releasing an album with the band Comecon, the band released Wolverine Blues in 1993; the album featured a departure of sound from the band's previous work, with a greater influence of hard rock and heavy metal alongside their initial death metal stylings, in a style now referred to as death'n' roll.

Although the release was divisive amongst the band's fanbase, it established their mainstream and critical reputation. Wolverine Blues is considered a classic of early 1990s death metal.1998's Same Difference was the band's first album without drummer and founding member Nicke Andersson, who left the band to concentrate on his new project The Hellacopters. He was replaced by Peter Stjärnvind. In 2000, Entombed released Uprising' with follow-up titled Morning Star released the following year. In 2001, the band worked with performance artists Carina Reich and Bogdan Szyberb, the Royal Swedish Ballet; the production was entitled Unreal Estate.2003 saw the release of Inferno, followed by Serpent Saints – The Ten Amendments, released on July 9, 2007. The album featured a greater influence from traditional death metal and is the band's first release with drummer Olle Dahlstedt, who replaced Stjärnvind in 2006, the first without guitarist Uffe Cederlund who joined Disfear. In 2014 Alex Hellid parted with the remainder of the band, who in turn formed Entombed A.

Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment

The Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment serves as Stanford University’s hub for faculty for environmental studies. An interdisciplinary research lab, Woods encompasses senior fellows and affiliated faculty as well as researchers, postdoctoral scholars and students collaborating on sustainability research, it supports research in seven areas: climate, ecosystem services and conservation biology, food security, oceans, public health, sustainable development. It provides seed funding for environmental research and supports seven research centers and workshops. In the mid-1990s, a committee chaired by former Stanford president Donald Kennedy was appointed by provost Condoleezza Rice to evaluate environmental research. In 2000, its report proposed a coherent program to coordinate major efforts; as a result, president John L. Hennessy in 2003 announced a campus-wide initiative on the environment and sustainability; the following year he created the institute to serve as the initiative’s centerpiece and focal point.

Envisioned as a hub for environmental researchers, the Institute brought together experts from the university’s seven schools to pursue interdisciplinary, research addressing complex environmental challenges while preparing the next generation of environmental leaders. The community grew to more than 150 fellows, affiliated researchers. In 2006 the Institute was formally renamed for Stanford trustee Ward W. Woods, his wife, who made a $30 million contribution; every year since 2004, the institute chooses several high-risk projects to fund. Each environmental venture project receives up to $100,000 per year for one to two years; each project must: Involve interdisciplinary collaboration among Stanford faculty members who have never worked together Be focused on challenges relating to the environment and/or one of Woods’ seven focal areas Seek advancement in complex, cross-cutting issues such as environmental ethics, incentive systems, risk perception, analysis and valuation of natural systemsWoods awarded $8.5 million to more than 50 projects in 24 countries through 2013, recipients have received $39 million in follow-on grants from outside sources.

EVP projects include: Low-cost mobile toilets: Stanford researchers developed a project called Sustainable Organic Integrated Livelihoods, aimed at producing portable, low-cost toilets to help improve sanitation conditions in parts of Haiti with no sewers or running water while improving the quality of agriculture land. Biodegradable plastic: Another team used its EVP to develop a wood substitute made from hemp fibers and a biodegradable plastic resin called polyhydroxybutyrate; this wood-and-plastic substitute has the potential to save trees, reduce greenhouse gases and shrink landfills. Pumping water with sunlight: a team led by professor Rosamond Naylor monitored a solar-powered drip-irrigation system put in place in two rural villages in northern Benin by Solar Electric Light Fund; as a result of these solar irrigation pumps, incomes in the two villages shot up, as did nutrition levels. Research sponsored by Woods led to innovations including solar energy pumps used to water crops in the developing world, new technology that removes pathogens from wastewater and the introduction of government policies for drinking water access in sub-Saharan Africa.

The Woods Institute is involved in educational and leadership programs, such as: The Leopold Leadership Program which trains academic researchers to take new approaches to learning, as well as to communicate their work to businesses, political leaders and students. It was created in 1998 and moved to the Woods Institute in 2005. Mel Lane Student Grants: These are grants of between $500 and $3,000 awarded to Stanford students to work on environmental projects in addition to their required coursework. Rising Environmental Leaders Program, a one-week training camp that takes place in Washington, D. C. Participants learn about partnership building and public service careers. Mentoring Undergraduates in Interdisciplinary Research, which provides a stipend to Stanford undergraduate students conducting interdisciplinary research who are enrolled part or full-time in summer school. Students need to work with a faculty member, willing to apply on their behalf. Stanford Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellowships, competitive awards for a three-year Stanford fellowship.

It is given to doctoral students who work on interdisciplinary research involving the humanities, the natural world and social sciences. Young Environmental Scholars conference, organized by Stanford postgraduate students and postdoctoral scholars aimed at bringing environmental researchers from all seven schools together to create a dialogue about environmental policy and norms research. Stanford students accepted into the Goldman Honors Program must study environmental science and policy, with a concentration in one of these disciplines. During their senior year, the students create and implement a project that addresses an environmental challenge. Official website
