first_imgJam stalwarts moe. continued their winter tour last night with a tight two-set performance at the Georgia Theatre in Athens, GA. The band filled the show with older, fan favorite material, awesome and poignant covers, ambitious improvisation and slick transitions.Set one opened with an energetic take on “Sensory Deprivation Bank”. “All Roads Lead to Home” followed, before a fun version of “Queen of Everything” was trotted out. “Don’t Wanna Be” came next, before an awesome “Opium” into “New York City” segment that was the highlight of the first set. A big “McBain” brought the first set to a close.Set two started off with the familiar falsetto of “Blue Jeans Pizza”. A heartfelt “The Happiest Days Of Our Lives” was up next, and that started off an awesome three-song segment that featured Pink Floyd‘s ever-poignant “Another Brick in the Wall”, and a raucous “Lazarus”. The band then kicked into high-gear with a seamless, four-song set-closing run through “Hi and Lo”, “Don’t Fuck With Flo”, “Ricky Marten”, and “Meat”.For the encore, the band stepped on the stage and busted out an improv-heavy cover of the Allman Brothers‘ classic “In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed”. It was a touching tribute to the recently deceased Butch Trucks, who sadly passed away earlier this week. They turned in an emotional version of “Liz Reed” in honor of their fallen compadre, as they toured with the Allman’s back in the 2000s.See below for a full setlist from last night’s moe. show at the Georgia Theatre.

Sudden weather shifts linked with more deaths

first_imgLots of heat waves and cold snaps can increase mortality rates, according to a new study from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.Previous studies have shown that more people die when it gets very hot or very cold. But those studies looked only at short-term death rates, so don’t shed light on the long-term effect of temperature on people’s life expectancy. The new study, published July 13, 2015 in Nature Climate Change, charted temperature and death rates among New England’s Medicare population—nearly 3 million people—zip code by zip code, from 2000-2008. The authors found that the more the weather varied from the norm, whether within a season or from year to year, death rates increased.“People do not adapt well to changes in temperature,” senior author Joel Schwartz, professor of environmental health, said in a July 13, 2015 interview on WBUR’s CommonHealth. He noted that temperature can affect blood pressure, lung function, and increase heart attack risk.“If the climate keeps bouncing around, going from 90 one day to 70 and then back up to 87—that is what puts the most stress on people’s bodies because they just don’t have time to adapt to the new temperature before it changes again,” Schwartz said. He said it’s important to better understand how climate change will impact temperature variability to assess the potential human health impacts. Read Full Storylast_img read more
