Regina CarterInternationally acclaimed violinist Regina Carter performed in concert at Wabash College at 8pm on Oct.19 in Salter Hall in the Fine Arts Center.

The New York Times says, “Ms. Carter is enormously gifted, bringing a blues sensibility to her improvisations,” and Time Magazine wrote, “Regina Carter creates music that is wonderfully listenable, probingly intelligent and, at times, breathtakingly daring... taking the listener into the future of jazz.”

Her concert at Wabash College was sponsored by the Visiting Artists Series. Her playlist for the evening borrowed heavily from her latest album release, Reverse Thread.

Motor EngineWhat to know and look out for

Buying a used engine online can seem very intimidating but it really should not be. However, there are some basics and things to watch out for and what to know when ordering and finding a good mechanic.

Before buying an engine, you need to make sure you need an engine. It’s easy to think the worst but maybe there’s another problem with the car. Remember you are changing the engine only and if the engine was not the problem then you risk having the same issues after the engine is replaced.

One of the most exciting things about live jazz is its spontaneity. It makes every performance, even with the same ensemble, set-list, and venue, different. For this reason alone, any show with Grammy nominee Gerald Albright, who just did the fourth edition of the annual Nile Gold Jazz Safari in Kampala, requires a police warning – it is always explosive!

Jeffrey SachsWe live in an era in which the most important forces affecting every economy are global, not local. What happens “abroad” – in China, India, and elsewhere – powerfully affects even an economy as large as the United States.

Economic globalisation has, of course, produced some large benefits for the world, including the rapid spread of advanced technologies such as the Internet and mobile telephony. It has also reduced poverty sharply in many emerging economies – indeed, for this reason alone, the world economy needs to remain open and interconnected.

MercedesMercedes-Benz inaugurates new climatic wind tunnels

Mercedes-Benz has inaugurated two new climatic wind tunnels at its Sindelfingen site, designed to bring extreme weather conditions indoors.

Temperatures ranging from minus 40 to plus 60 degrees Celsius, hurricanes with wind speeds of up to 265 km/h, tropical rainfall and heavy snowstorms are all part of the standard repertoire available to the test engineers. If needs be, they can even provide a realistic simulation of a mercilessly hot sun.

Caught in the Winds is L.D Wenzel’s debut novel which interestingly explores growing up as more of a mental than physical challenge for humans, and perhaps more-so in college. It’s a curious coming-of-age story of the conflicting life and/or experience of the protagonist and narrator, Morrie Schiller, a simple and lonely guy from a not-so-well-to-do family, who’s enrolled into an evangelical college and majoring in philosophy.

Perhaps because of the current high fuel prices and the mistaken belief that it can save fuel or simply for the love of fresh and avoidance of AC allergies; whatever the reason, driving with the windows rolled down is on the increase.

It is now common to see people struggling with wind as they drive with their vehicle windows rolled down. In extreme cases the wind makes it difficult for the driver to either see or to breath. Female drivers tend to fare worse because of their sometimes long hair.

Continuing on our driving in the rain season theme of last week, we forgot to mention a simple but important item on the car; the mud flap.

Mud flaps, also called mud guards or splash guards, are simple, purposeless-looking rubber wings behind each tyre.  Not many people know they can help avoid accidents as my friend, who is also fellow mechanic found out recently. He was driving behind these big trucks commonly known as “magulu kumi” or ten tyre trucks that are popular for ferrying construction materials, sand, stone, and others.

Little known author is jailed for book critical of Museveni

After his release, Vincent Nzaramba, the 36-year old Ugandan author of a book critical of President Yoweri Museveni, says five days in detention “was a taste of hell”.

His book, People Power, Battle the Mighty General, He is Finished, is a compilation of already known fables that he uses to portray his view of problems in Uganda under Museveni. But the government accuses him of inciting violence and sectarianism in the book and his arrest has added another dimension to the book; a debate on whether the regime is increasingly becoming paranoid.
