ABC NewsBy HALEY YAMADA and ERIC NOLL, ABC News(NEW YORK) — With Thanksgiving just days away providing a stark reminder, the need for food has grown worse among Americans who are struggling to feed their families during the coronavirus pandemic.“About 40% of the people who are turning to us for help have never before relied upon the charitable food system,” said Claire Babineaux-Fontenot, CEO of Feeding America, the country’s largest hunger relief organization. “Unfortunately, the food crisis persists.”An October report from Feeding America said that the pandemic had created “the perfect storm” for food banks with a surge in demand but a decline in food donations, the availability of volunteers and other operational challenges.With no immediate end to the crisis in sight, innovative Americans began new charitable organizations aimed at combating the hunger spread rampant across the country. College student Aidan Riley, the founder of “FarmLink,” began the organization to connect farmers who’d been forced to discard spoiled food with food banks instead. On Monday, the organization said it plans to deliver a million Thanksgiving meals.In May, FarmLink helped Idaho potato farmer, Doug Hess, deliver his potatoes to food banks in California.“I’d like to thank FarmLink for helping me move 125,000 pounds of potatoes that otherwise would have gone to waste,” said Hess.FarmLink said that they have since delivered more than 15 million pounds of food.The “East West Food Rescue,” a Northwest-based group that purchases surplus food from farmers and distributes it with people in-need, said that it plans to deliver 8,000 turkeys in time for Thanksgiving.Zsofia Pasztor, a member of East West Food Rescue said, “We keep America strong during this COVID-19 pandemic.”As COVID-19 continues to surge across the U.S., food is not the only thing needed during the upcoming weeks — but also care from frontline workers.Rine Uhm, co-founder of “Give Essential,” said that they’re working to make sure our frontline workers are taken care of while they take care of us.“We’ve been able to raise the equivalent of 1 million dollars in donations for essential workers for all 50 states,” said Uhm.A nurse in Chicago who received a care package from Give Essential said that she feels grateful.“I just wanted to say that this is such a wonderful blessing for me and my family,” she said.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

At a recent round-table discussion, we were talking about the one album that gave us that moment of “I get it.” While the deep digging into the far recesses of my mind could have very well taken hours, days, months, and so on, the real answer wasn’t as difficult to come up with as I thought.That album was (drum roll, please)… the Beastie Boys‘ 1994 album Ill Communication. I was 13-years old, and I could have gone back to Van Halen‘s 1984, where I asked my parents to play “Jump” and “Panama” on repeat endlessly, but it was truly with the B-Boys that I got “IT”. The love of music was always there, but Ill Communication changed my perspective many times over.The love of the album began, of course, with the “Sabotage” video getting regular airplay on MTV, and to this day still, hands down, one of the best music videos ever created. That was back when that station still gave a fuck about music, and not Teen Mom‘s and their inability to keep their legs closed, or understand the concept of using prophylactics. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I truly care about Jenelle and Farrah and all, but let’s stick to the music MTV.I had been suffering from severe migraines for a solid year or two at that point, while in middle school, and was going for a CAT Scan to see what the issue was. Slightly unnerving, but it had to be done. To anybody that doesn’t get migraines, they are the worst, and I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy… well, maybe my worst one. Anyway, the doctors said that I could bring in some music and listen to it while the testing was going to be done. While my Mom and I made our way from the doctor’s office to the CAT Scan place, we stopped at Sam Goody‘s (remember that place?). I knew exactly what album I wanted. It was a no-brainer. Definitely have to give it to my Mom, the “Parental Advisory” sticker didn’t really phase her at all, and like that, Ill Communication was mine, all mine.The album definitely helped ease my mind while getting those tests done, and I remember the people that were running the tests saying to me upon leaving, “Those are some interesting lyrics”, clearly having perused through the album art. And as I would find out upon further devouring of the album when I arrived back home, they most certainly were interesting lyrics, for many reasons. Message to the kiddies that only stream their music, or download it… you’re missing out big time. There is nothing better than taking off that plastic wrapper from the album you just bought and looking over every aspect of the album booklet, while rocking out to the music. Go out and buy music!Over the course of the next few weeks, I spent every waking moment learning every lyric to that album, looked over the artwork (i.e. the truly impressive “Gaia” artwork by Alex Grey on the page for “The Update”) time and time again, and fell absolutely in love with the Beastie’s. Being a kid from Queens, I could relate to three MC’s from other parts of the five boroughs. While having heard past songs such as “Fight For Your Right”, “No Sleep ’til Brooklyn” and “So What’Cha Want”, listening to Ill Communication was akin to doing research for a thesis.“Cause you can’t, you won’t, and you don’t stop”And that’s how the album starts on “Sure Shot”. “It’s the taking of the Pelham, 1-2-3, if you want a doo-doo rhyme then come see me”….WHAT?! Absolutely ridiculous. Mike D into Ad Rock into MCA, spitting and trading verses back and forth with so much ease that only their own words can explain.“Bill Laimbeer, motherfucker, it’s time for you to die”The B-Boys love them some b-ball, and you can hear it in a nice chunk of their lyrics over the course of the group’s career. “Tough Guy” is literally calling out ex-Detroit Piston bad boy power forward Bill Laimbeer for being a world class douche on the court. You really can’t blame the guy though, that was back when people actually played defense in the NBA, and you didn’t allow anybody to just walk across the lane for a lay-up or dunk. Ahhh, the good ol’ days….“Shit, if it’s gonna be that kinda party….”It was with that little line, smack dab in the middle of “B-Boys Makin’ With The Freak Freak”, with a sample of Mantan Moreland‘s from his comedy That Ain’t My Finger, that it was a forever love with the three MC’s and one DJ. Thirteen year-old me was rolling on the floor laughing before ROFL was even a thang.But as the album progressed, it wasn’t just the tongue-in-cheek humor that the Beastie Boys exhibited that I fell in love with. I mean, look at the instrumentals on the album, such as “Sabrosa” or “Eugene’s Lament”, or the downtempo, smooth jazz sounds of “Ricky’s Theme”. You could easily find yourself at an NYC jazz lounge, drinking bourbon or scotch neat, smoking a cigarette, and tapping your feet along to the drum beat that Mike D. was throwing down. That shit is THAT good! And then, you even got a little education on the group’s hip-hop roots and where it all came from. Check out Mike D. on “Root Down”:“Every Morning I Took The Train To High Street Station Doing Homework On The Train, What A Fucked Up situation On The Way Back Up Hearing Battle Tapes Through The Underground, Underneath The Sky Scrapes Like Harlem World Battles On The Zulu Beat Show It’s Kool Moe D Vs. Busy Bee There’s One You Should Know”And here is Kool Moe D vs. Busy Bee from the Harlem World Battle Christmas Rappers Convention show back in 1981:These dudes weren’t just MC’s spitting rhymes, they originally started out playing instruments in a hardcore punk band called The Young Aborigenes – sans Ad Rock, he was in a band called The Young and the Useless before joining forces with his two brothers-in-arms in 1982. While never abandoning their roots (i.e. “Sabotage” and “Heart Attack Man” – everything about Ad Rock’s vocals is straight punk), the trio furthered their evolution with some of the most beast-mode instrumentals heard on the planet, that have since been sampled time and time again. These guys were serious artists, playing some serious music. With Mike D. on the drums, MCA on bass, and Ad Rock on guitar, the creativity simply flowed like the salmon of Capistrano.Then you get a special guest and fourth MC like A Tribe Called Quest‘s Q-Tip on a number like “Get It Together”, and you’re attempting to mimic and play karaoke singer along to four completely different tones and cadences. What about Biz Markie joining the fray on “Do It”? And musicians and producers such as Eric Bobo (percussion), Money Mark Nishita (keys), and Mario Caldato Jr., who is an incredible producer in his own right. This album is a collective of quite a bit of genius lumped into one seriously epic album front to back.Beastie Boys performing “Sabrosa” live at the Tibetan Freedom Concert in Washington D.C. (1998):The Beastie Boys weren’t just about the party and the good times, it was clear on tracks such as “The Update” and “Bodhissatva Vow” that a “transition is occurring and I am not blind” (as MCA so eloquently rhymed), and it was important for the group to be both socially and spiritually conscious about the state of the world we are living in, and to convey that to their listeners. At 13, I wasn’t learning much about Shantideva, Dharma, and Samsara in the classroom; Adam Yauch aka MCA’s poignant lyrics acted as a form of extra credit in the game of life for me. A deeply devout Buddhist, Yauch was the main impetus behind the Milarepa Fund and the Tibetan Freedom Concert – the latter of which I attended at Randall’s Island in 1997 – both of which helped raise money for the plight of Tibetan independence.The Tibetan Freedom Concert was my first “festival experience” with acts such as the Beasties, Radiohead, U2, Foo Fighters, A Tribe Called Quest, KRS-One, Sonic Youth, Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals and a long list of talent that is actually mind-blowing to recollect as I write this. A truly great experience, musically, but more importantly it raised my own level of awareness and consciousness with regards to the plight of the Tibetan people even moreso, with monks performing these gorgeous chants, as well as former political prisoners and human rights activists speaking on-site throughout the day. It was eye-opening, to say the least, and showed me the real influence music can have on the state of the world. “The Update” and “Bodhissatva Vow” lyrics were monumental in shaping my teenage mind and made me see the world quite a bit differently.The only live performance of “The Update”, in Japan 1994, courtesy of nutri871:With the instrumental piece “Transitions” fittingly bringing the album to a close, it went hand in hand with the transition I was going through in my own life. Being a teenager isn’t an easy stage of life, you are changing physically, mentally, and spiritually. Some guidance helps, and Ill Communication was the album that lent a hand in a good portion of helping me accept such changes and understanding that music is truly universal:“I Can Hear The Trumpets Blowing Screaming Out The End Of Time Look Around And Listen And You’ll See Every Sign The Waters Are Polluted As The Forests Are Cut Down Bombing And Drilling Deep Below The Ground Check The Prophecies From Around The World And Look Around Now As It All Unfurls Look Into Yourself And See What Goes On Get A Feeling In Your Heart Of The Right From Wrong”In conclusion, I just have to say RIP to Adam Yauch. It’s hard to believe that he has been gone for a little over four years now, leaving this world at the age of 47; the thought still pains me to think that he is no longer with us. His lyrics have had such a huge impact on me as a human being. I wrote my own lament the day he passed on to the next life. Let’s hope that creativity and passion transferred on to somebody else, because the world could certainly use it right about now. read more
(Photo courtesy the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.) ALIENS ON EARTH? No, but 13-year cicadas certainly resemble something from your science- fiction nightmares. These spooky insects emerge only once in 13 years. When they do emerge, the males create the unique sound that attracts mates. Then the 13-year cycle starts again. Annual cicadas, typically seen in the summer, have brown-black bodies, black eyes and clear wings. The 13-year cicadas are much spookier. They have vivid red eyes, black bodies and clear wings with orange stripes. “The 13-year cicadas normally appear in heavily wooded areas, especially where lakes or streams are nearby,” Braman said. “What makes them so noticeable is their numbers and the unusual sound they make.” Dog-day or annual cicadas, much larger than their 13-year cousins, make noise, too. “But people are accustomed to it as background noise in trees on hot summer days,” Braman said. The good news for people living where 13-year cicada numbers are high is that cicadas work normal hours. “The males’ song begins in the morning and subsides in the evening,” Braman said. The males create the noise, she said, to attract the females. (You can hear cicadas on the World Wide Web at
groSolar Brings Solar Hot Water to Fenway ParkMay 19, 2008 – White River Junction, VT — Boston Red Sox’s Fenway Park now has more green than just their field and their 37 foot, two inch left field wall, nicknamed the Green Monster.

The Reds have to be the most fan-friendly organization in baseball. The package deals they offer in groups of tickets is quite attainable for most families. One of these deals is that if one adult buys a full price ticket, several more tickets are available at reduced prices. This is quite different than the prices charged in Boston or New York where few, if any, tickets can be found for less than $100–and most of them are much higher than that. I understand some box seats in New York go for more than $1000. I thought baseball was America’s sport! I am one American who is not in this price range. The Reds also offer great deals for large groups, community nights, and several other types of packages. Another good thing about the Reds is that their stadium is very fan friendly. There are really no bad seats like Wrigley Field has behind those posts. They have the kid playground section and several other nice features. If they just had those large open lots close to the park, it would be even friendlier. I know this is not possible with city prices on land being what they are. I understand the underground garage is pretty convenient. I seldom go these days because of my disability, but I understand this ball park is pretty handicap friendly as well. I will have to give it a try again one of these days. Now I just need a good chauffeur, and I’ll be all set. What do you think, Sally? read more
