This is all exacerbating an already under resourced GP service, due to the Financial Emergency Measures in Public Interest (FEMPI) cuts imposed a number of years ago. It is expected that ever present issues to be widely discussed and debated over the weekend.Limerick Dr Emmet Kerin, President of the NAGP said “since 2013 the NAGP has warned that General Practice is in crisis as a result of FEMPI. We are now seeing a broken health system nationwide where newpatients are unable to sign on to GP practices as they are beyond capacity. Here in Cork, Macroom is completely closed to new patients”.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A ballot was issued to members last week. The results speak for themselves. It was asked to members ‘Would you sign a new GP contract that has not been equally negotiated by the NAGP?’ Ofthe 1152 responses, 84% of our members said No, they would not sign a new GP contract.We know GPs are becoming increasingly vexed at the lack of action in terms of negotiating a new contract.The aim of the NAGP AGM is to promote proven solutions that have worked in other jurisdictions. Keynote speakers Professor Paul Grundy and Dr Jack Cochran will address the many crises facingGPs today and the additional crises in the wider health care system.Its believed that the Slaintecare report has the recommendations required to tilt the healthcare service into an efficient, low cost,high value, population health management model.Its hoped through the auspices of Professor Grundy and our members who are early converters to a population health management model, that the tide can be changed and #savegeneralpractice.More about health here.

Anti-Litter Committee calls for citizens to rally

first_img Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Book Nook to reopen Print Article By Jaine Treadwell The committee discussed the pros and cons of the way that the competition could be judged and the consensus of the committee was that the cleanup day should be the same for all districts in order to accommodate the trash pickup.The idea will be presented to the city council members for their consideration and their input.John “Doc” Anderson said that, for that idea or any idea to work, the city council members should show up at the cleanup days and lead.“The council members are on the payroll and they need to be at the cleanups and lead from the front,” Anderson said. “This is about pride. We should all take great personal pride in our community. I’m tired of giving out happy meals for everything. We should do what we do out of pride.”Raymond Sexton said that the ultimate goal of the Anti-Litter program is to get litter off the streets and clean up the community.“It’s up to all of us,” he said. Latest Stories Anti-Litter Committee calls for citizens to rally The City of Troy’s Anti-Litter Committee met Thursday and called for a “rally around the trash can.”The committee seeks to find ways to reduce and, hopefully, one day eliminate the litter problem in the city.The District 3 cleanup is scheduled for 9 a.m. on Aug. 31. Litter-getters are to meet at the Troy City Board of Education building on Highway 167.

Organ Freeman Released Their New LP “Respect My Art” Today, And It’s Dope [Stream]

first_imgIn celebration of the coming release, Organ Freeman has planned two release shows. The first takes place at The Mint in the band’s hometown of Los Angeles, CA on Saturday, September 16th. The second will be held at The Independent in San Francisco, CA on Saturday, September 23rd. Tickets and more info is available via the band’s website.Organ Freeman Upcoming 2017 Tour Dates9/16 – Los Angeles, CA – The Mint *9/23 – San Francisco, CA – The Independent *9/30 – San Diego, CA – WinstonsOB10/6 – Las Vegas, NV – The Yard @ Top Golf10/5 – 10/8 – Joshua Tree, CA – Joshua Tree Music Festival Today, LA instrumental trio Organ Freeman has officially released their second studio album, Respect My Art, after announcing its coming release and debuting the record’s lead single, “Don’t Eat Your Fingers” (which is now in rotation on Sirius XM channel Jam_ON), last week. Starting today, Respect My Art is available for purchase via iTunes and streaming on AppleMusic and Spotify.Listen to “Don’t Eat Your Fingers,” the lead single from Organ Freeman’s new album, Respect My Art, below via Spotify:Comprised of Rob Humphreys (drums), Erik Carlson (guitar), and Trevor Steer (organ/keys), the young band has already begun to make a reputation for themselves in the funk/jam scene with their unhinged live performances and eclectic, technically proficient recordings. Respect My Art is the band’s second release, following their 2015 self-titled record, Organ Freeman. The band’s newest effort leads the them largely in a new direction, as they meld EDM electronics with traditional organ trio instrumentation.Of the new record, Steer explains, “Our goal for this album was to try to create the biggest, most expansive sound we could as a three piece, so instead of writing and arranging with the instrumentation in mind, we decided not to shy away from layering or sounds that wouldn’t normally be considered in an organ trio setting.”For Respect My Art, Organ Freeman ventured outside of the standard drums-keys-guitar lineup of an organ trio and enlisted some heavy hitters to join in on the magic. They invited Theo Katzman of Vulfpeck, as well as Dave Brandwein of Turkuaz, alongside bassist Sean Hurley (Vertical Horizon), trumpet player Sean Billings (Jungle Fire), alto saxophonist Woody Mankowski (The Muller’s Wheel) and tenor saxophonist Jesse McGinty to fill out various tracks on the album, delving deeper into previously uncharted territory for the band.However, one aspect of the album does not–thankfully–seek out uncharted territory ia the issue of song names. As an instrumental band, the names of the songs are largely open to interpretation. On Respect My Art, the band’s song names are once again hilariously engaging. With Organ Freeman, bizarre and amusing titles like “Byrd vs Fish.” “Got Change for a Nickel?,” “Don’t Eat Your Fingers,” “E.T. AF,” and “Putin and I Get Along Fantastic” pull the listener in, and the band’s explosive musicianship grabs them by the chin, slaps them across the face, and instantly converts them into a fan.You can listen to Organ Freeman’s brand new studio record, Respect My Art, below via Spotify:last_img read more
