Lukas Nelson joined up with his band Promise of the Real over the internet for a performance of “Speak The Truth”. The song from the band’s 2020 Naked Garden album comes as the latest installment in Nelson’s Quarantunes Evening Session series.Since the touring hiatus began over three months ago, Nelson has kept up a prodigious output of content. Nearly every day finds the son of country music royalty Willie Nelson uploading a new video to his YouTube channel, oftentimes performing solo.Related: Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real Share Video For Alternate Version Of “Civilized Hell” [Watch]The rock-Americana outfit’s song opens up with a slick blues riff reminiscent of the Grateful Dead‘s “West L.A. Fadeaway”. While this arrangement technically isn’t anything different than what’s found on the album, the Quarantunes version of “Speak The Truth” just has a little extra pop. The snare drum hits harder and Nelson picks the notes with the emphasis of a man who has been locked away lo these past few months. Especially in a time like right now when many people are calling for an end to such precautions as masks, social distancing, and other CDC recommendations meant to curb the spread of coronavirus, Nelson and company remind us that it is now more important than ever to “have courage, stand your ground/speak the truth.”Watch Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real perform “Speak The Truth” for the Quarantunes Evening Session series.Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real — “Speak The Truth” — Quarantunes Evening Session[Video: Lukas Nelson]
The watershed approach is part of Johnson County’s new strategy to tackle flooding issues. Turkey Creek, pictured above, affects cities in watershed area 1, including Roeland Park, Merriam and Mission.The Roeland Park city council on Monday approved a watershed agreement with Johnson County as part of the county’s new stormwater management program.Working together is the county’s approach with the updated program: watershed organizations are created across city boundaries to allow for collaboration on projects that may impact more than one city. Roeland Park and 11 other cities, including Merriam and Mission, are part of watershed area 1, which is impacted by Turkey Creek and Brush Creek.“The city is not obligated [to enter the agreement], it doesn’t cost the city anything out of pocket,” Public Works Director Donnie Scharff said. “It does allow these cities to work with neighboring cities on projects.”Councilmember Jan Faidley noted that this item had not been discussed during a council workshop session, but said she was OK with the agreement because it makes sense to collaborate with neighboring cities. Councilmember Jennifer Hill said she recalled the council discussing entering the agreement, though she said it might not have been formally in a workshop.City Administrator Keith Moody said stormwater project funding through the county’s Stormwater Management Advisory Council could be jeopardized if the city chose not to participate in the watershed area. In addition to potential SMAC funding, Moody said the watershed agreement creates an opportunity to help fix issues in one city that may be caused or contributed to by surrounding cities.“You can work together in this drainage basin to fix a problem that might not be occurring in Roeland Park, but may be occurring downstream,” Moody said.The agreement does not prohibit Roeland Park from completing local projects on its own, and it does not require the city to ask for permission to complete those projects. Additionally, if a project meets a specific criteria, there is a chance it could be 100% covered by the county. Otherwise, the city and the county would split the cost and each fund 50% of the project.City council unanimously approved the agreement. Councilmember Trisha Brauer was absent. Roeland Park’s approval comes just one week after the Merriam city council unanimously entered into the watershed agreement, following a presentation from county public works staff member Lee Kellenberger. The watershed agreement goes into effect Jan 1., and will stay in effect for 10 years. Cities do have the option to opt out of the program at any time, Scharff said.
NewScientist:Think hard: you can transform a circle into a hexagon using the power of your mind. New animations created by Hiroyuki Ito from Kyushu University show how staring at coloured shapes can produce an afterimage that varies in form as well as hue. “This is the first study to show systematic shape changes in after-images involving shape processing mechanisms in the brain,” says Ito.The first version of the illusion uses solid, stationary shapes. After focusing on yellow circles, blue hexagons typically appear and vice versa. The same effect also occurs with outlines of the shapes.In another variation, hexagons and circles rotate. Although the movement paints circular shapes on the retina, the animations produce the same shape-changing effect as the static illusions.After-images are thought to occur when three types of retinal cells are overstimulated. Due to signals lingering on the retina, a blurred version in complimentary colours typically arises after the image disappears. But in this case, the additional shape change could be caused by tiring out areas in the cortex that detect corners and curves.Read the whole story: NewScientist
