Marga Lincoln for Independent Records

Urban legend has it that two public radio lovers mounted a portable transmitter atop Mount Helena in 1984 and began broadcasting Montana Public Radio reruns to Helena for the very first time.

Since that auspicious day, more transmitters have been added – so Helena is one of the few communities in the country to receive broadcasts from three different public radio stations – Montana Public Radio’s KUFM in Missoula, Yellowstone Public Radio KEMC in Billings and Bozeman’s Alternative Public Radio. KGLT station.

The result is a huge number of listening choices for all sorts of tastes in music, news, public affairs, as well as an array of shows on arts, culture, food, science , technology, business, literature, media, storytelling and children’s programming.

Another LCPR milestone is on the horizon – a community recording and podcasting studio – and the folks at Helena can help make it happen.

Saturday, August 13, from 4-8 p.m., will be the Last Chance Public Radio Party at Blackfoot River Brewing, 66 S. Park Ave.

Hosted by Friends of KGLT and Blackfoot River Brewing Company, the block party will be LCPR’s first live fundraiser since the COVID-19 hit.

This will help LCPR and the Holter Museum of Art launch their own fully equipped recording studio, which they plan to house at Holter, pending final board approval.

Several KGLT DJ wagons come over for the block party to help celebrate.

Ellen King-Rodgers, president of Friends of KGLT and former station manager, cooked up the block party with a few DJs and help from Bethany Flint, co-director of Blackfoot.

Flint and King-Rodgers are planning a street party with music from classic rock band The Stand-Ins, food from SouthPaw Street, Taste Food Truck and Brooklyn Pizza plus plenty of Blackfoot craft beers on tap.

“The DJs – before COVID, all jumped in cars and raced over there and saw everyone, and the DJs met the listeners, King-Rodgers said. “Everyone was having such a good time together that no one wanted to go home.

“This year we talked about doing something – it would be fun to have a celebration because we haven’t all celebrated in a long time.”

All money raised at the event will go to the broadcast studio and LCPR, she said.

Since KGLT and the other stations do “non-commercial educational radio”, they rely on supporters like LCPR, listeners and subscribers for financial support as well as grants.

“Coming to Helena has always been a warm, receptive and happy experience for all of us,” King-Rodgers said. “Last Chance Public Radio is a great group of people. Helena is super lucky “to have shows from three different stations.”

The new recording studio could be operational this fall, said Jules Schoebel, LCPR vice president and event/volunteer coordinator and store manager at the Holter Museum.

She and other LCPR board members began researching the equipment they would need about five years ago, but COVID derailed their plans.

“We have reached out to all three public radio stations,” said LCPR President Paul Driscoll, “and we have a very good buy-in.”

Now their plans are back on track. Schoebel and Driscoll would like to order the equipment this month and estimate the cost at around $23,000.

They plan to create a fully equipped and functioning recording studio that will be ideal for recording musicians, podcasts, interviews and “Live from the Holter” events, including artist talks and performances, a-t she declared.

Additionally, the equipment will be portable, so it can be rented to local nonprofits, which opens up many more creative options for podcasts and live recordings.

“We’re getting a lot of excitement about it,” Schoebel said. They will be able to share podcasts and recordings of programs with public radio stations, but also broadcast them online.

“I would love to do live streaming in the future.” “It’s a perfect little marriage,” she added, between LCPR and Holter.

“I think it’s a lot. I think we’re going to do it,” Holter chief executive Chris Riccardo said, although he warned that formal approval from Holter’s board was still needed.

“I think it will be a great addition. I think it’s a real working partnership.

“I strongly believe in it. It’s a win-win for all of us.

Family physician Dr. Genoveva O’Neill stands in front of a sign that reads PeaceHealth Family Medicine of Southwest Washington in Vancouver. Here she cares for patients of all ages.

Donald Orr

Editor’s Note: OPB recently welcomed a cohort of early-career journalists as part of NPR’s Next Generation Radio. They spent time talking to locals about how climate change is directly affecting them and their communities. This story is part of this series.

Two years ago, during record wildfires in the Pacific Northwest, a longtime patient of Dr. Genoveva O’Neill hesitated to go to her doctor’s appointment as smoke from the forest fires filled the air. An elderly black woman with limited access to transportation, she already had respiratory complications from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD. She was afraid to go out, so she canceled her date. But this delay in treatment worsened her condition and she ended up in hospital.

COPD is just one of many underlying conditions that can be exacerbated by wildfire smoke caused by climate change. O’Neill wants to make that connection for her patients in Vancouver: she sees a higher incidence of lung disease, cardiovascular disorders, heart attacks and strokes. And it’s not just physical ailments: mental illnesses like depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder can occur. Washington and Oregon are already among the top states with the highest prevalence of mental illness.

O’Neill is already seeing the adverse effects of climate change in his patients, including patients from the Latinx community. Some are particularly vulnerable to the health consequences of scorching hot days and dangerous smoke from wildfires, due to long working days outdoors.

Because [Latinx community members] are more likely to work in industries that require outdoor work – agriculture, manufacturing, construction – we see many more health effects of climate change: hotter heat waves, longer droughts, wildfires said O’Neill.

According to a 2021 NPR/Columbia survey, workers of color are dying at a higher rate than white workers. Since 2010, one-third of heat-related deaths have occurred among Latinx farmworkers, even though they make up just 17% of the U.S. workforce.

O’Neill says she also sees more climate-related respiratory problems in infants.

“[We’re] seeing a lot more children developing things like asthma and breathing problems at a very early age – we’re talking three to six months, forcing them to be on long-term medication at rates we haven’t seen before,” O’ Neil says. Older children are also affected – a 12-year-old patient now needs an EpiPen after suffering a new, life-threatening allergic reaction.

It can get more complicated when the parents don’t speak English. As new symptoms emerge due to the smoke from the wildfires, O’Neill is spending more time to ensure caregivers and parents feel comfortable administering life-saving medication, such as an Epipen, to their children.

O’Neill strongly believes in the power of using the data and research already available to recognize the health impacts of climate change. She worries not only for her patients, but also for her own family.

“I worry about my children, not only the immediate effects on their breathing, but what kind of world are we delivering to them?” said O’Neill. “If we can make a change now, it will always make a difference to the world we are going to leave to our children.”

(KNSI) – The St. Cloud Rox won their third straight game on Sunday afternoon with a 10-6 win over the Waterloo Bucks. With Willmar dropping a close decision in Duluth, the team is once again ahead of the Stingers in the standings.

The Rox won Great Plains West in the first half quite comfortably, but no Northwoods League side have been better in the second half of the season than Willmar. Their 23-5 record catapulted them into a neck and neck race for the division’s best overall record with St. Cloud.

The Rox (45-17) and Stingers (44-18) both have six games to play. Willmar will play two more at home, but St. Cloud has an easier schedule. Left for the Rox are playoffs with Waterloo, the Minnesota Mud Puppies and Bismarck. These teams combined for fewer total wins (42) than the Rox managed on their own.

Willmar, by comparison, will have a road mapped out with LaCrosse and finish the regular season at home against Duluth, first-half champions Great Plains East.

Willmar and St. Cloud are guaranteed to meet in the first round of the playoffs. The three-game series will see the first contest played in the team with the worst final record. The top seed then gets Game 2 and Game 3 (if necessary) at home.

Although the Rox don’t know when their first playoff game will be at Joe Faber Field, tickets are already on sale on the team’s website.

A key part of Central College’s record-breaking 2021 football campaign returns to the Netherlands this fall, but as part of the coaching staff.

Tanner Schminke, who received first-team Division III All-American honors from The Associated Press and D3fooball.com as a wide receiver, joins the staff as an assistant coach working with defensive ends .

Schminke, a native of Boone, Iowa and a 2021 Central graduate, served as head golf coach for boys and girls at Gladbrook-Reinbeck High School last spring and since March has also served as golf course superintendent at Oakleaf Country Club in Reinbeck.

At Central, Schminke was part of two American Rivers championship clubs and helped the Dutch to a 12-1 record last fall, reaching the NCAA Division III quarterfinals and finishing with a No. 6. Led Division III in touchdown receptions (19) and receiving yards (1,536), ranked fifth in receiving yards per game (118.2), 11th in points (114 points) and 16th in receptions per game (7.2). His last-second TD reception gave Central a 30-28 second-round NCAA playoff triumph over Wheaton College (Illinois).

Schminke set school season records for most receiving yards and touchdown receptions and ranks second in receiving yards in a game (255), season (19), and career (29). He ranks third in career pass receptions (163) and fourth in career receiving yards (2,491).

A first-team all-conference pick in 2021, Schminke was twice named to the D3football.com Team of the Week last fall.

FIFI PETERS: Paper and packaging group Sappi today released a blockbuster set of results, if I do say so myself. Profits for the period soared more than 1,000%, boosted by strong global demand for paper in the third quarter that ended in June.

We have Sappi CEO Steve Binnie on the Market Update for more on the numbers. Steve, thank you very much for your time.

These are really solid results. I don’t know why the market is reacting to your results this way because your stock price was under pressure today. Nevertheless, let’s start there. What do you think of the reception of your figures by the market?

STEVE BINNIE: Listen, this is a little strange. In my opinion, this is a record set of numbers with strong cash generation.

I think what’s impacting the stock price is this expectation of a global economic slowdown, which is obviously tied to higher inflation, higher interest rates. Certainly, in Europe, I know that there is a lot of economic pressure linked to the Ukrainian war. So I guess that’s what it’s about.

But I don’t agree with that impact on the share price today because I think it was a record number one and we’re very proud of the performance.

FIFI PETERS: Perhaps allay the fears, of sorts, by letting us know what a recession would mean for your business or a marked slowdown in global growth? What do the numbers look like for Sappi in this scenario?

STEVE BINNIE: Look, our short-term goal has been to pay down debt and reduce balance sheet risk. We have been able to do this thanks to these continued excellent numbers over the past few quarters. I think our goal has certainly been to reposition the business for the longer term.

We are moving away from a traditional graphic paper business, which is more volatile and exposed to these economic vagaries, as we move towards more consistent performances in packaging products, which are related to food products, etc.

As we continue to reposition the business, this will make us more resilient. We are therefore certainly in a much stronger position than in previous recessions. We are rather optimistic about the future prospects. You would have seen in our outlook statement that we were saying that fourth quarter earnings, while they may not be the record third quarter numbers, will still be very strong.

FIFI PETERS: So just in terms of the debt you paid off, it’s worth noting that you reduced your net debt by 26% over the period. You’re sitting at $1.5 billion at this point.

Before talking about your prospects, let’s talk about the period that has passed, because you talk about a very strong global demand for paper. We are now in this digital age, where we are told that everything is going digital, or has gone digital, and paper is no longer a thing. Yet your numbers seem to suggest otherwise.

So tell us about where this global demand for paper is coming from and how they are using it.

STEVE BINNIE: Look, there’s been a strong rebound since the Covid lockdown.

Much of the paper used goes into marketing literature [for] certain retailers, financial institutions, travel and entertainment agencies [sector], tourism-related industries – and there has been a big rebound. You will see, with all the challenges they face in airports etc. there has been a huge demand.

Also, as I mentioned earlier, with Sappi’s repositioning towards more packaging and strong demand for paper as an alternative to plastic, global trends are more favorable to paper as a greener alternative.

FIFI PETERS: So strong demand for the paper drove the numbers up, which boosted sales this time around, but prices [has been] help you a little too. Just tell us about the price environment. First of all [there’s] inflation which is causing a lot of concern around a possible recession, but what is the impact of inflation on your business right now?

STEVE BINNIE: It has a huge impact. In the quarter that we just reported, as I said, there were record profit numbers, but our variable costs, which are our raw materials that we use in the production process, surprisingly increased by 26% year over year.

So a huge, huge impact from an inflation perspective. And it was at all levels.

It came from the energy we use, the chemicals we use in manufacturing, the pulp, and ultimately the cost of transporting our product by road and rail, but ultimately shipping. So all of that combined contributed to that 26% increase.

We knew demand was good, markets were tight. We have therefore increased selling prices to offset the impact of these costs. And in fact, our sales were actually up 31% year-over-year, largely due to, on the one hand, strong demand, but these higher selling prices.

FIFI PETERS: Which was also quite remarkable in your statement. So how much did you sell [a result of] inflation or how much have you increased your costs?

STEVE BINNIE: Yes, it’s up 31% year over year.

FIFI PETERS: So what are your customers saying? I also know what’s going on right now – you’re describing the market being quite tight due to a whole host of factors. Feel free to review. But your customers who have to pay 31% more [than] they may have done it around the same time a year ago, are they okay, and how long do you think they can sustain such high prices?

STEVE BINNIE: Yes, this has clearly put pressure on our customers. This is not, as I said, unique to our industry. There are many industries around the world that are being affected by inflationary pressures that we have not seen for many, many years.

It’s a good question you ask because it’s clear that costs keep going up indefinitely and at some point customers are going to say they can’t take it anymore.

That’s why we’re a little cautious in our outlook statement, saying that earnings won’t be as high because we saw further cost increases after the end of the quarter and that’s mainly in Europe – that’s mainly linked to gas prices in Europe. They have increased considerably and we remain cautious. We are obviously trying to preserve our margins and we have announced further sales price increases, but if costs continue to rise, this will put pressure on us.

FIFI PETERS: In South Africa, a brief commentary on operations here and how the recovery is going [after] the impact of floods? Is everything back to business as usual?

STEVE BINNIE: It was difficult. Obviously the floods had a major impact on Sappi, as we are a large company in KwaZulu-Natal.

Three of our factories are there and we had to stop production. It takes time to ramp up afterwards. We had a lot of damaged inventory.

And then, to add to the challenges, most of the products are exported from the Port of Durban, and that has also been affected by the floods.

Lily:

It took us some time, but things gradually improved. As we said today, things are much better than they were in April, of course, when the floods happened. We are much more confident about the outlook for the current quarter.

FIFI PETERS: Steve, thank you so much for taking the time to join us. It was Sappi CEO Steve Binnie.

Stoke-on-Trent born and raised singer Robbie Williams is no stranger to breaking records. His impressive discography includes seven number one singles here in the UK, and 11 of his 12 studio albums have gone straight to No. 1, with six of those albums earning a place in the UK’s 100 best-selling albums. He also won a Guinness World Record in 2006 for selling 1.6 million tickets in one day for his Close Encounters tour.

It’s no surprise that Williams is something of a record-breaking superstar: he joined pop group Take That when he was just 16 and contributed to the group’s top 28 singles, before embark on a solo career.

His solo work has blessed our ears with tracks like ‘Angels’, ‘Rock DJ’, ‘Feel’ and our favorite, ‘Something Stupid’ featuring Nicole Kidman – which technically isn’t a Christmas song, but the music video festive always puts us in the festive mood.

Williams then joined Take That in 2006, but was he “back for good”? Unfortunately no. Although the original five musicians released the album “Progress” around this time, which featured the bop “The Flood”.

If this trip down memory lane makes you want to see Robbie Williams live, well, you’re in luck! Williams joins other music legends, such as Tears for Fears and Sophie Ellis-Bextor, at Radio 2 Live in Leeds in September.

Wikipedia froze edits to its page for “recession”, ending a frenzy of edits to the entry after the Biden administration insisted the US economy had not entered an economic downturn.

The website’s definition of recession has been changed dozens of times over the course of 24 hours, in an apparent reaction to the White House’s resistance to labeling the current economy a recession.

New and unregistered users are no longer allowed to edit the page, which is currently “semi-protected” until August 3, according to Wikipedia.

Top Biden administration officials dismiss talk of recession

On Thursday, the Commerce Department said the economy contracted at an annual rate of 0.9% in the April-June quarter, marking the second consecutive quarter of negative GDP, or gross domestic product. A consecutive fall in GDP is seen by many as an unofficial barometer of a recession.

Days before the release of the latest numbers assessing economic health, President Biden had insisted that low unemployment, record job growth and foreign business investment signaled a strong economy.

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen also avoided clinging to the R-word during a recent appearance on NBC. Meet the press. Although two consecutive quarters of negative growth usually defines a recession, she said, “when you’re creating close to 400,000 jobs a month, that’s not a recession.”

The National Bureau of Economic Research says the traditional definition of a recession is “a significant decline in economic activity that spreads throughout the economy and lasts for more than a few months,” a fact noted in a July 21 memo from the White House that cited the NBER as the “official recession marker.”

The GDP report was expected to show a negative figure. In the days before the data was released, revisions to Wikipedia’s definition reflected an alignment with the Biden administration’s stance against a recession.

A user named “Soibangla”, many of whose recent page edits have been rejected and rejected by other users, made a significant change to the introductory paragraphs on Tuesday, adding the line: “There is no global consensus on the definition of a recession.”

It previously read: “While national definitions vary, two consecutive quarters of decline in [real gross domestic product] is commonly used as a working definition of a recession.”

This language was more like its current iteration, a version currently locked to Wikipedia: “Although the definition of a recession varies between countries and scholars, two consecutive quarters of decline in real gross domestic product (real GDP) of one countries are commonly used as a working definition of a recession.”

Now, a disclaimer at the top of the page warns viewers that the “recession” page may be subject to rapid updates, citing “increased political debate in the United States.”

“An outdated version of this article has been widely circulated,” the entry reads. “Please check if the claims or screenshots you have seen are consistent with what is currently here.”

As with all Wikipedia pages, previous versions of the “recession” entry appear in the revision history.
