Clarksville, TN – In the early 1990s, four highly trained classical musicians moved to a small farming town in Iowa and set up shop as the community’s resident quartet. The Ying Quartet, as the group was known, received a National Endowment for the Arts grant for the groundbreaking experiment of integrating music and creative activities into the everyday life of the town of Jesup.
Residents heard the group perform haunting and powerful classical works at schools, churches, banks and inside their own homes. They viewed the arts differently after those two years, and the experiment went on to become a model for future NEA projects.

The Austin Peay State University campus and community was treated to a night of musical genius and history when Austin Peay State University Professor of Voice and renown soprano, Dr. Gail Robinson-Oturu teamed with distinguished composer, conductor and educator Roland Carter to present a Night of Negro spirituals titled “Tryin to Get Home”
Most of the time concerts involving Negro Spirituals are done by singers that take their voice training and style from gospel music. This was the first time I had heard Negro spirituals sung by a trained opera singer but at the same time I could hear the gospel upbringing coming through with each selection she sang.

The health care company Abbott says about 5 million containers of its Similac-brand powdered infant formulas—which includes Isomil and Go & Grow—are being recalled because of possible contamination with insect pieces or larvae.
The voluntary recall affects milk- and soy-based formulas distributed in the United States, Puerto Rico, Guam, and some Caribbean nations. At least 12 of the recalled products were provided to families through the federal government’s Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) health and nutrition program.

Knoxville, TN – More than 372 businesses across the Tennessee Valley Authority service area reduced their electricity use this summer as part of a program that is helping TVA and all consumers save energy and money.
TVA, regional power distributors and energy management contractor EnerNOC worked together to lower peak power demand during the hottest days of this summer’s heat wave.
TVA has contracted with EnerNOC since 2008 to coordinate pre-arranged peak load reduction agreements, known as demand response, with businesses in the region.
The program is showing results. On July 29th and August 3rd, two of this summer’s hottest and highest demand days, the EnerNOC contract delivered 183 megawatts and 170 megawatts of peak power savings, respectively. That is enough each day to serve about 100,000 homes. «Read the rest of this article»
