The band will continue to release their shows for free download and streaming via archive.org. “Our intent is to duplicate our “Band Released” content that currently exists on Archive.org on nugs.net as well. As we record, mix & master more shows, they too will find their traditional home on Archive as well as a new home at http://nugs.net/app/,” said a statement on Joe Russo’s Almost Dead’s Facebook page.To coincide with this announcement and to prove the group was serious about still releasing all their soundboards for free, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead released their recent New Orleans shows on May 6th and 7th from the Joy Theatre.

Navajo Generating Station purchase falls through

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Bloomberg:Private equity company Middle River Power LLC is ending its bid to buy Navajo Generating Station, the biggest coal-fired power station west of the Mississippi River.The collapse of the deal deeply threatens the survival of the coal-fired power plant in Page, Ariz., which is slated to close at the end of 2019 unless a new buyer steps forward immediately.Middle River was “terminating its efforts with regard to the overall work” on buying the plant, spokesman Todd Fogarty told Bloomberg Environment Sept. 20. “Unfortunately, recent developments in California and Arizona will create additional challenges for baseload power plants, and it has not been possible to secure from counterparties commitments to purchase a sufficient amount of power generated from Navajo Generating Station to enable a workable operating paradigm,” the company said in an email to Bloomberg Environment.As such, Middle River Power and global investment firm Avenue Capital Group “have concluded that the steps required to facilitate our ownership and operation of the plant are no longer possible within the required timeframe and therefore we are terminating our efforts,” the company said.The plant has become a freighted political symbol, representing for some the Trump administration’s efforts to prop up the coal industry, and for others a dying business that can’t compete against cheaper natural gas and renewables.Another loser is Peabody Energy Corp., which owns the nearby Kayenta Mine. The mine supplies all the plant’s coal and has no other customers, because no rail spur connects the mine to the outside world.More: Private equity company ends bid to buy Navajo Generating Station Navajo Generating Station purchase falls throughlast_img read more

Kagawa rejoins Dortmund

first_img “Of course we chose to sign this quality player again.” Since joining United in the summer of 2012 – signed by Sir Alex Ferguson – Kagawa struggled to reproduce the form he displayed in his first spell at Dortmund, which started when he joined them from Cerezo Osaka in 2010. The 25-year-old made 57 appearances for United and scored six goals, including a hat-trick against Norwich, but failed to convince the club he was the playmaker they thought they had signed. “I said on the day of my departure that my story with Borussia Dortmund was not completed,” Kagawa told Dortmund’s official website. “I wanted to realise my Premier League dream but now I’m happy to be back in Dortmund; in this great team, the unique environment. Dortmund is like a family. “I am proud they have never forgotten me and I can belong again.” Kagawa has been restricted to just one appearance under new United manager Louis van Gaal this season, coming in their 4-0 Capital One Cup defeat against Milton Keynes Dons. United had still to confirm Kagawa’s departure but its impact is unlikely to be felt in the wake of Angel di Maria’s recent arrival. Shinji Kagawa’s time with Manchester United has come to an end after Borussia Dortmund signed their former player on a four-year deal. Press Associationcenter_img The Bundesliga club announced that the Japan international midfielder had rejoined them on Sunday afternoon, ending a two-year stay at Old Trafford. “The chance presented itself over the last few days to make the signing of Shinji Kagawa from Manchester United,” Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc said. last_img read more
