Denver’s Knew Conscious Starts Indiegogo Campaign For Better Space For Art Community And Performances

first_imgDenver’s Knew Conscious Collective an art gallery and social club is known for throwing epic late-night parties with global artists from the jam, funk, livetronica, bass music, and house genres. In the past, the venue has hosted shows with artists from acts like The Disco Biscuits, Break Science, Lettuce, SunSquabi, The String Cheese Incident, GRiZ, Shpongle, Thievery Corporation, The New Mastersounds, and many more.[via Adam Asdel Creations]Recently, Knew Conscious Collective moved to a bigger space in Denver’s LoDo region after seven years in RiNo, in an attempt to create an even better environment for club members and those attending performances. However, the venue encountered some unforeseen zoning issues, meaning additional construction must be done for Knew Conscious to fully comply with city regulations and re-open. Founders of the interdisciplinary artistic hub have started an Indiegogo campaign to raise the final portion of funds needed for construction and are currently offering discounted memberships and incredible artwork and prints as an incentive.Getting To Know Knew Conscious Collective: Denver’s Hottest New Late-Night VenueAccording to the venue, those that contribute to the campaign can secure heavily discounted packages for membership and all shows, in addition to expediated entry to the gallery, limited edition 18×24″ prints produced by Threyda, and other original works of art. The funds raised will go towards building bigger bathrooms, fire exits, additional fire sprinklers, improved heating and air conditioning, and more.In addition to individual contributions, The City of Denver has pledged a grant of their own to help with the cost of construction, showing us their appreciation for what we provide for the community. According to venue founders:There is very little risk of this project, only challenges. We do not want to break ground on construction until we have all of the funds in place. Our biggest challenge is raising money as quickly as possible so we can meet out ideal reopening date. Our commitment to our vision has led us to overcome any risk or challenge that had been presented to us. This one is no different.Supporting the arts and, most importantly, independent spaces and promoters like Knew Conscious Collective is essential to a burgeoning creative scene on all levels and in all communities. There is a lot of adversity facing independent business owners these days, and support from the community is essential, especially now more than ever. Any and all contributions are helpful. Check out the campaign and what is being offered here.[via Christopher Rys]If you are unable to contribute to this campaign, there are still ways you can help. Share on all of your social media accounts—tell everyone you know! If you want to contribute more than the highest tiered perk of the campaign, please contact Knew Conscious directly. Contributions above our highest tier would be tax-deductible and made payable to the Denver Creative Spaces Fund, which has been an invaluable resource to us during this re-zoning process.

Flavor Winners

first_imgAs a young boy, Ted Dennard learned the art of beekeeping. Today, he uses his passion for honey to earn a living. He’s the founder of Savannah Bee Company, which sells pure, raw honey and honey products. His Grill Honey took top prize in the annual Flavor of Georgia Food Product Contest Tuesday in Atlanta. His sauce bested Georgia coast shrimp, fresh peach bread, granola, Vidalia onion dressing, olive tapenade and great cheese, to capture Grand Champion at a ceremony led by Gov. Sonny Perdue. Winners were announced as part of Georgia Agriculture Day, March 16. “That is so awesome. We are so lucky,” Dennard said. He entered Grill Honey, the company’s newest blend, to introduce the market to a new way of looking at honey. “Adding honey to grilled foods is great way to add a sweet glaze to salmon or other meats,” he said. The annual contest, conducted by the University of Georgia Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development, was held at the Georgia Freight Depot in downtown Atlanta. Winners were selected in seven categories. Dennard’s Grill Honey won the barbecue and hot sauce category, a sweet surprise for a spicy competition. “We never expected to win anything,” he said. “The barbecue category has such depth in flavor we didn’t expect anything. But, we are so honored and thankful for this award.” Learning the art of beekeeping as a small child, Dennard still tends about 35 hives that render the honey used in some of the company’s products. The company sells several honey varieties including tupelo, orange blossom, acacia and winter white. “Every honey has a different color, taste and sugar. Tupelo is my favorite and tastes great on everything, but different honey varieties are used for different foods,” Dennard said. Blended from mountain sourwood and wildflower honeys, Grill Honey has a more robust, complex flavor and is generally darker than the other blends. Grill Honey was one of 24 products sampled and judged by a panel of food brokers, buyers and other food industry experts. Contestants were awarded points based on flavor, Georgia theme, unique or innovative qualities, commercial appeal and originality. Finalists were chosen from 79 entries from all across Georgia. “We try to include every major state commodity to get a broad representation,” said Sharon Kane, contest organizer and a UGA CAED food business development specialist. This year’s final products included poultry, peanuts and blueberry juice as well as olives, goat cheese and shrimp. Judges indicated it was the best competition so far by marking the highest scores ever received. They were also the closest. Three or four points separated first from fourth in several categories.“Without a doubt, this is the best group we’ve ever had,” Kane said.Other category winners were: Confections – Ricky Vining of Lane Southern Orchards won with Lane’s Fresh Peach Bread. Dairy – Cathy Spivey and Robin Schick of CalyRoad Creamery won with Clouds of CalyRoad Camembert. Jams, jellies and sauces – Vicki and Larry Forton of Olive Affairs won with Gourmet Olive Tapenade. Meat product – Chip Reed of Blue Marlin International won with Blue Marlin American Shrimp. Other products – Douglas Horn of Vidalia Valley won with Organic Vidalia Onion Tomato Basil Dressing. Snack foods – Susan Cordell of Goodness Gracious! Granola won with You Struck Gold. Winners earn the right to have their products stamped with the 2010 Flavor of Georgia logo. Food processing is the single largest part of the manufacturing sector of the state,” said John McKissick, director of the Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development. “The importance of this industry is continuing to grow.” “We gave out awards, but that’s not the point. The contest was designed as a way to develop food entrepreneurs and showcase their products,” McKissick said. “We provide education and applied research together to develop and grow their business. All contestants receive feedback from food industry leaders on packaging, ingredients and taste. And they have an opportunity to meet people who can help them grow their business.” Flavor of Georgia is only a starting point for many of the category winners, Kane said. She followed up with the 2009 winners and found that nearly 80 percent experienced increased interest in their products as a result of the contest. Also, 50 percent saw an increase in the publicity for their products. The annual food contest is sponsored by the CAED in partnership with the Governor’s Agricultural Advisory Commission, Georgia Agribusiness Council and UGA Department of Food Science and Technology.last_img read more

Bipartisan Move in Congress to Thwart Trade Petition Aimed at Driving Up Solar-Panel Prices

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Washington Examiner:Republican and Democratic lawmakers on Friday defended U.S. installers of rooftop solar panels and made an effort to beat back a pending decision that could make imported solar panels more expensive.Bipartisan letters from 16 senators and 53 congressman were sent to International Trade Commission Chairman Rhonda Schmidtlein, and urged the agency to reject a petition by Chinese and German-owned companies that manufactured solar panels and cells in the U.S., but have since gone bankrupt.The two foreign-owned companies that produced in the U.S. were seeking protection from imports that they say is hurting U.S.-based manufacturing. But the lawmakers wrote in their letters that imposing duties on these imports would only increase costs for domestic companies that install rooftop solar panels.“Solar companies in our states believe the requested trade protection would double the price of solar panels,” the Senate letter read. “Increasing costs will stop solar growth dead in its tracks, threatening tens of thousands of American workers in the solar industry and jeopardizing billions of dollars in investment in communities across the country.”Sens. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., and Martin Heinrich, D-N.M., spearheaded the letter writing campaign on the Senate side. Reps. Mark Sanford, R-S.C., Mike Thompson, D-Calif., Pat Meehan, R-Pa., and Matt Cartwright, D-Pa., did the same in the House of Representatives.The letters were sent ahead of the trade commission’s Aug. 15 hearing on the petition by Chinese-owned Suniva and German-owned Solar World. The ITC’s role in the case is to decide if imports are hurting U.S.-based manufacturing, even if through the import of fairly traded goods.The Solar Energy Industry Association, the main trade group for the U.S. solar industry, explained that the “agency is considering whether these two companies out of more than 8,000 across the U.S. solar industry deserve tariff relief that would impact the entire market.” The group is opposing the companies’ request at the agency.Abigail Ross Hopper, president and CEO of the solar industry group, said the lawmakers effort shows that “trade tariffs are not a red or blue state issue.”The solar energy industry has created 1 out of 50 new jobs within the U.S. in the last year, according to SEIA.More: Republicans, Democrats join forces to protect rooftop solar installers Bipartisan Move in Congress to Thwart Trade Petition Aimed at Driving Up Solar-Panel Priceslast_img read more

Officer Shot, Killed Bay Shore Carjacking Suspect, Cops Say

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York A Suffolk County police officer fatally shot a 21-year-old suspect who allegedly carjacked a vehicle with two children inside in Bay Shore after shoplifting from a nearby Best Buy store on Sunday evening, authorities said.The officer responded to a report of a larceny from the store on West Sunrise Highway, where a witness pointed out that the suspect, Denzel Brown, of Amityville, was hiding outside the store at 7:46 p.m., police said. When the officer approached, Brown allegedly fled and the officer chased him on foot, police said. The officer used a Taser on him, but it was “ineffective,” police said.“As Brown was running away, he attempted to open the doors of both moving and parked vehicles that were in the parking lot and along Nevada Avenue,” police said in a news release. “He then attempted to steal a running car from a couple while two children, ages 4 and 6, were sitting in the back seat. The couple was screaming at Brown to stop as the officer caught up with him and ordered him out of the vehicle.”Brown started driving away when the officer fired one shot at him, opened the car door and tried to remove Brown from the vehicle, police said. A struggle ensued and the officer used the Taser again, but it was still not effective, police said. The officer fired a second gunshot before additional officers arrived and took Brown into custody, police said.Brown was taken to Southside Hospital in Bay Shore, where he died during surgery.The incident is similar to one in which a Lake Success village police officer shot and wounded a cell phone store robbery suspect who authorities said was carjacking a victim while making his getaway three weeks ago, Nassau police have said. That suspect survived.Homicide Squad detectives are continuing the investigation and ask anyone with information about this incident to call them at 631-852-6392 or call anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.last_img read more

Open voting for the selection of 100 leading Croatian restaurants – Restaurant Croatica 2019

first_img100 leading restaurants are presented with their offer, natural and historical environment in the annual edition of the same name, which is published every year in print and online Croatian and English editions in May. It was originally initiated back in 1995, and the basic idea was to do market research on which restaurants best meet the needs of guests and highlight the leaders in order to motivate others to improve the quality of offer and service. In 1995, the survey covered about 700 restaurants, while in 2019, that number climbs to over 2400 restaurants, says Karin Mimica, the alpha and omega of this project, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary. Project of 100 leading Croatian restaurants – Restaurant Croatica the project is to promote quality in the hospitality industry through the annual election of leaders and the publication of an accompanying publication. Reward excellence and great hosts, because only in this way can we highlight the best we have and give them real support.center_img The content of the edition has been expanded with recipes from leading specialties in order for the edition to retain its place in the home library even after the appearance of new annual editions. You can browse the last few editions on-line, and you can vote for the selection of 100 leading Croatian restaurants in 2019 HERE “Comparing the data from the questionnaire for restaurant managers from year to year, we noticed an increase in the offer and details that can motivate the guest to return, long-term investments in the quality of the offer and education of staff and numerous events in restaurants. The title of 100 leaders has become prestigious over the years, and caterers are aware that even today they can defend / deserve it only if they are recommended by many satisfied guests throughout Croatia. Mimica points out and invites everyone to join the vote in order to make the final list of the 100 best Croatian restaurants as credible as possible. As Mimica points out, part of the voting is conducted through the portal , where voters can further emphasize the quality of the offer, service and ambience. At the same time, caterers, restaurant managers vote with the recommendation of colleagues who are their role models and fill out questionnaires with a detailed description of their offer and service. The final word after reviewing all the materials is given by the Honorary Committee of the project, which announces a new list of 100 leaders.last_img read more

Burgers of goodness as a guide to how to proceed after this extraordinary situation

first_img” We are honored to participate in this campaign and help a strong brand like Submarine. We are happy that with quality delivery we can offer comfort when needed. We are proud to be among the first to launch a trend of this kind of help to those who are on the front line of defense We continue to do similar activities and we want to encourage the rest of the industry to help those who need it the most at the moment. ”Added the director of Wolta, Mr. Matko Katanec. This is how blue and green Croatia are connected, ie agriculture is connected with tourism. We just need to put it all together lighthouses, kako bi dobili masu u kontekstu količine, kao i najvažnije poljoprivrednike spojiti u klastere, da mogu proizvesti tražene količine iste kvalitete. Često su ljudi u zabludi kada se priča o ovoj temi te odmah gledaju hotele kao velike potrošače namirnica. Ne, treba krenuti upravo obrnuto, od “manjih” ( iako u slučaju Submarine burgera već govorimo o prvom hrvatskom burger lancu s trenutno 7 lokacija u Zagrebu i Rijeci ), mali restorana i malih obiteljskih hotela, pa tek onda probati otvoriti i kanal prema hotelima. Krenimo prvo malim koracima, postavimo dobre temelje i tek onda korak po korak spojiti 20 milijuna dolazaka turista svake godine s našom proizvodnjom. To je proces s kojim se netko mora strateški baviti. They regularly prepare lunch and dinner for our true heroes from the intensive care unit. But they are no longer alone in that mission, joined by Wolt, who delivers meals from Submarine’s restaurants free of charge.   No primjeri kao što je Sumarine su dokaz kako ima potražnje, dapače, danas je u ugostiteljstvo kvalitetna namirnica luksuz, a ne “zlatni” tanjuri. Man is the key to success Da to nije samo fraza, u Submarine su od ove godine pokrenuli i edukativni program – Submarine pipeline, kojim žele potaknuti svoje zaposlenike da se dodatno educiraju, da rastu i razvijaju se u smjeru u kojem se dugoročno vide. Tako kvalitetne ljude zadržavaju i daju im priliku da mogu napredovati. Kada pričamo o promociji, u Lijepoj našoj , marketing je i dalje u sferi troška, a ne investicije. Zato je i primjer Submarine PopUp restorana još jedan lijep dokaz kako iskočiti iz mase i biti drugačiji, te kako je ulaganje u marketing, a samim time i u uređenje, dizajn pa tako i za PopUp “štand” nije trošak nego investicija. Their enthusiasm and dedication, from the first day of the spread of the coronavirus, was recognized by the Submarine Burger team and among the first to launch free food delivery to team members in March. Clinics for Infectious Diseases Fran Mihaljević, to thank them for everything they do. SUBMARINE as an example of how blue and green Croatia are connected Every crisis is also an opportunity. This is our opportunity to reset and finally lay a healthy and quality foundation for a better tomorrow. Hard and challenging times, such as this pandemic, often encourage the best in people and trigger a wave of support and kindness. Unfortunately often the worst, but that’s another story, not certainly for this article. That’s why they are where they are – the first Croatian burger CHAIN. I intentionally emphasized the “chain” because it is much easier to dream and say, and extremely difficult to realize. ” From the very beginning of the crisis, we wanted to get involved and help. Social sensitivity and care for the community in which we operate are firmly inscribed in our DNA. After the meeting of the whole team, we decided to brighten up the hard everyday life We will deliver food as long as possible, and we are very happy because we managed to keep all our employees, we would like to invite all food delivery companies and other catering companies to, in accordance with their capabilities, get involved in delivering free meals to health professionals. they take care of the sick every day with great effort. ”Said Mr. Dragoljub Božović, Director of Submarine Burger. To spice up this story about the Submarine burger a little more, I would certainly point out the creative way of promotion that follows the latest trends, in fact, even sets some trends. So Submarine has its own internet radio u suradnji s Yammatom, a u suradnji s agencijom Kisok studio ove godine izradili su fenomenalne 3D fotografije svojih burgera, te su tako postali prvi koji su u Hrvatskoj napravili kampanju isključivo s oglasnim rješenjima 3D fotografija. To sve nije slučajno, sve je to samo još jedna mali dokaz kako je Submarine puno više od burgera. Submarine je brend koji u svojem DNA zapisano – ljudi, kvalitetno i dugoročno. Odličan putokaz kako nema uspjeha preko noći, bez kvalitete i kako nam mora biti stalno do naših zaposlenika i partnera. Svi u tom lancu moraju biti zadovoljni, kao i u samom burgeru. Svaki sastojak je važan, koliko god mali bio – da bi konačni proizvod bio vrhunski. Among us, people are heroes, those who are in the first line of defense have been showing commitment for weeks, putting in immense effort and risking their health on a daily basis to help others. Our real heroes, those heroes who do not hide behind masks and who are not invisible and who are not from the Marvel workshop – these are our doctors and medical staff, who work non-stop, and without working hours, all in a noble mission to help the sick or real saving our world. No, this is not a disaster movie, it is our reality, so our heroes are real. By the way, this is a new type of advertising, the so-called “Immersive Advertising”. It is a type of advertising that uses content formats such as 3D photos and videos, 3D models, 360 ° video and VR / AR experiences. Burgers of goodness as a guide to how to proceed after this extraordinary situation And yes, they didn’t immediately start firing in the first wave, they kept all the workers and started delivering. This enthusiastic team of good heart is starting cooperation and delivery of food to the doctors of the Clinic for Infectious Diseases in Rijeka, and they hope that their initiative will be accepted by other caterers and thus make their challenging everyday life at least a little easier. And let’s finish this article as we started. For years, Submarine has been raising funds for the RED NOSES association, clown doctors for regular visits of clown doctors to hospitals, and helping various associations and local clubs, but they do not brag about it too much. That is why this last action is not accidental, but only the continuation of socially responsible business from the first day. Being different from others and following trends is synonymous with Submarine Ovom prilikom moram posebno istaknuti kako Submarine od svojih početaka koristi domaće namirnice, surađuju s lokalnim OPG-ovima, a u ponudi imaju i domaća craft piva. Organski burger je ključna riječ, a sve namirnice ( od umaka, salate, krumpira, peciva do mesa ) povezuju dvije riječi – lokalno i kvalitetno. Small but important details that make a difference, that show a sign of attention and how they care, which is a very valuable currency today.last_img read more
