Last week, STS9 announced that the group would be returning to the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado in September for a special string of shows in celebration of their 20th anniversary. While STS9’s annual pilgrimage to Red Rocks for two nights each September has always been a highlight of fan’s year, this year, Tribe will be hitting Red Rocks for three nights across September 8th, 9th, and 10th, and each night has something special in store.On Friday, the group will play the entirety of Artifact, their 2005 release that was recorded across 2001 through 2004. The first night of the run will also see performances by Nightmares on Wax, El Ten Eleven, and Moon Boots. Saturday night, SUB-ID and Richard Devine will serve as support before Tribe puts on a more standard performance, though the performance is likely to be anything but standard. To close out their Red Rocks run on Sunday, STS9 will play a special “Axe The Cables” acoustic set to end their celebratory weekend. Troyboi, LTJ Bukem featuring Armanni Reign, and Soul Clap will kick off this last show.Tickets for the special show go on pre-sale tomorrow on Wednesday, April 19th, with 3-day and single tickets available to the general public here on Friday.[Photo courtesy of Aaron Bradley]
Florida’s health department today reported 8,942 new cases of COVID-19, smashing the previous record of 5,511. The new cases bring the total confirmed cases in the state to 122,960, including 3,366 deaths. After setting another one-day COVID-19 record on Wednesday, Florida broke the record again today, with a massive increase of almost 9,000 new cases. In South Florida, Miami-Dade County’s confirmed cases increased by 1,532 to 30,196. The county has 946 deaths, the highest total in the state. Broward’s cases increased by 736 to 13,320. The county’s death toll rose to 381. Palm Beach County’s cases increased by 658 to 12,498, with the death toll at 490. While some counties have increased safety measures such as requiring face coverings for all residents and harsher penalties for non-compliant businesses, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis still maintains that the increase in cases is as a result of increased testing. “What we’re seeing today, obviously a lot of news [is] saying a huge number of ‘cases,‘” DeSantis said at a press conference on Friday. “Really nothing has changed in the past week. We had a big test dump. We’ve been testing, 10-15% have been testing positive for really the last week. And that’s a huge change from where we were at the beginning of June, when we were basically 3-4% in terms of the positivity statewide.”

A nurse from Co Donegal has accepted an MBE from Britain’s Prince Charles on behalf of all multiple sclerosis sufferers and their carers.Nursing consultant Bernadette Porter MBE!Bernadette Porter, who is originally form Raphoe, was given her award at Buckingham Palace.Ms Porter has pioneered projects to help thousands of patients at The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in London. She was the first nurse in the NHS to be appointed a multiple sclerosis nurse consultant in 2003 after working at Dublin’s Richmond Hospital in the 1980s.Bernadette, who has worked at the NHNN for nearly 25 years, said: “It was such a surprise for me to receive an award – and such an honour!“I feel very humbled and continually feel inspired by the people I meet who face a challenging disease like MS and live their life with such dignity.”“Around 3,000 people a year use the MS service at UCLH and it’s important to put patients at the centre of all we do. I try to really listen to what patients say about our services, to ensure they fulfil their needs.” One of Ms Porter’s biggest dilemmas before receiving her MBE was what she was going to wear on the day!She developed and spearheaded the use of new technology to give patients with neurological disability more control over their own lives and the care they receive.It included: a telephone triage/advice line staffed by specialist nurses; email advice service for GPs wishing to contact a consultant neurosurgeon and a video clinic linking the neurology team with the patient and local clinical team in the patient’s community.The original ‘NeuroResponse’ pilot in 2009 was supported by UCLH and the Young Foundation, a centre for social innovation.Bernadette said: “It has linked up people with MS with expert clinicians and patients tell us it has improved their quality of life by giving them the confidence to manage their condition.” Bernadette also paid tribute to her ‘excellent colleagues.’“I feel privileged to work with them,” said Bernedatte who is a daughter of the late Joe and Kathleen Porter.Bernadette also won recognition at the British Journal of Nursing Awards 2011. She was chosen by a panel of respected judges as one of the top three nurses for clinical excellence and innovation in nursing.DONEGAL NURSE RECEIVES HER MBE FROM PRINCE CHARLES was last modified: February 13th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Bernadette PorterdonegalMBEPrince CharlesRaphoe
