Back in 2010, Herbie Hancock stopped by the Swamp Raga Studios for a house-warming visit to Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi. The three came together for Hancock’s 2010 album, The Imagine Project, for the track “Space Captain” with additional members of TTB, including Oteil Burbridge (bass, vocals), Kofi Burbridge (keys), Mike Mattison (vocals), and Vinnie Colaiuta (drums).The married duo then toured with Hancock to perform this number for his 70th birthday concerts at Carnegie Hall and the Hollywood Bowl. The song is now featured in their setlists from time to time.Watch, and feel, the magic from the recording session below:
WHITNEY POINT (WBNG) — Cornell Cooperative Extension of Broome County is handing out garden kits to students in four local districts. CCE will be handing out the remainder of the kits to students in Susquehanna Valley, Harpursville and Windsor school districts. Each kit contains an Earthbox container, cool-season seeds, garden and kitchen tools. “The idea is that we’ll be able to make a salad,” Truesdail said. “Make a fresh salad or do some cooking with kale, and some of the herbs they’re growing as well.” “A lot of people don’t think about growing things in the cold season,” Truesdail said. “We will be showing them tips to grow cold season crops.” Truesdail says students will be growing lettuce, spinach and kale. CCE received a $50,000 grant through NYS Agriculture and Markets to give kits to students in four local districts. Megan Truesdail, elementary ag in the classroom teacher, says there will be Zoom calls in the fall to help students and parents with their crops. The kits are designed to empower students with the knowledge, skills and resources to grow their own food.
Ethiopia hosts the largest number of refugees in Africa.As South Sudanese flee to Ethiopia, concerns are growing that its capacity to help displaced people may be overstretched. Ethiopia overtook Kenya to become Africa’s largest refugee-hosting country after hundreds of thousands of South Sudanese arrived in the country this year. The total refugee population has reached almost 630,000, raising concerns that its capacity to help displaced people may be overstretched. Leslie Mirungu has the details on how that country is coping and shouldering that burden.
