Metropolitan Baptist Church Plans to Brings the Community Together for an Unforgettable Music Experience on Sunday

first_img Subscribe Altadena’s Metropolitan Baptist Church hosts its annual Down Home Gospel Concert Sunday to ring in the holiday season and to bring the community together through gospel music.The concert will feature prominent area gospel musical performers and an afternoon of fun, unity and joyful singing open to all.“What we’re trying to do is extend gospel music during this period of joy and adoration leading up to Thanksgiving,” said Metropolitan Baptist Church Deacon Joe Brown.The concert is dedicated to the memory of a local Pasadena gospel artist named Keith Williams who passed away earlier this year. Williams was originally from New York and sang for a variety of professional gospel groups throughout his lifetime, according to Brown.“The spirit and intent of this event is to lift up our community for anybody and everybody and that’s who we want to see come in —  not just one ethnic group — but everybody,” said Brown.Brown described the significance of gospel music as being the heritage of the South, specifically in African-American culture. He explained that the unique style of blending voices, without music equipment to aid, is special and unlike any other form of music that exists today.“People will get a chance to understand some of the historical heritage of gospel music and how it is sung,” said Brown.The event features both acclaimed recording artists and local groups hand-picked to perform by Brown that include Men of FAME Pasadena, New Hope Baptist Church Male Choir (San Bernardino), Metropolitan Baptist Church Male Choir, Morning Star BC Men, Acclaimed Artist Rev. Michael Larry & Gospel Soul Touchers, God’s Elect KEISO & Church Boys, according to a press release.“Gospel music has a flavor to it that makes it hard for you to sit down. It doesn’t matter who you are — it’s electric and lots of fun,” said Brown.Brown expects over 600 attendees to participate in the fun. The ceremony will also feature a special recognition to Brother Eddie Fulton (Eddie’s Gospel Hour), and Deacon Osephine Washington (Gospel Revelators).Master of ceremonies is KALI 900 am Radio Hose Rev. Walter Radford.“It’s going to be electric, it’s going to be moving and for those who have never grown up in the gospel environment, you will never forget this experience,” said Brown.The Down Home Gospel Concert In Memory of Keith Williams begins at 4:00 p.m. at Metropolitan Baptist Church located at 2283 N Fair Oaks Ave, Altadena.For more information, visit or call (626) 798-8611.

Blackest black

first_img“It’s a great resource, to show people how black black can be,” said Khandekar.Not much is known about the actual “growing” process for Vantablack. It’s a secret developers are determined to keep under wraps. When Khandekar first contacted the company about obtaining a sample, representatives declined. Khandekar persisted, and as interest in the pigment broadened, the company eventually made Vantablack samples available for “educational purposes.”One lucky artist has unlimited access to the color. The sculptor Anish Kapoor negotiated exclusive artistic rights to Vantablack S-VIS, a spray form said to be the world’s blackest paint. The velvety surface it produces “is something that fits right in with Kapoor’s artistic practice,” said Khandekar. “So I can see why he was drawn to it.”Many artists have protested the Kapoor deal, and Khandekar acknowledged that it’s atypical for an artist to have sole right to a particular color. “It is unusual,” he said, “but this is an unusual pigment.” Emmanuelle Alt, the editor in chief of Vogue Paris, is said to have quipped: “I’ll stop wearing black when they invent a darker color.”The Frenchwoman may want to schedule a Harvard visit.The British company Surrey NanoSystems has developed what it calls “the darkest man-made substance,” a material known as Vantablack, a sample of which is now part of the collections at the Harvard Art Museums. The color is located in the Straus Center for Conservation and Technical Studies’ Forbes Pigments Collection, an assortment of about 2,500 synthetic and organic pigments that helps conservators, curators, and students study and safeguard artworks.Just how black can black get? Vantablack absorbs close to 100 percent of light. The material is less a traditional pigment — a powdery substance typically combined with a binding medium and spread on canvas — than the product of a complicated scientific process involving carbon nanotubes cultivated on the surface of an object.“It’s not a powder that’s mixed with something and then applied … it’s grown there in situ,” said Straus Center Director Narayan Khandekar, Harvard’s resident pigment expert. “You have small round tubes that grow outwards from the surface. The light goes into those tubes, bounces around, and then is transferred into heat energy, which is then dissipated. And so the surface is more than 99.9 percent light-absorbing.”The museums’ sample, applied to a piece of crinkled aluminum and encased in a see-through box, is a wonder of extreme darkness. On the edges and back of the sample, the silver aluminum is clearly buckled and creased, but the Vantablack section appears entirely smooth.

Open Season to test customer demand for German LNG terminal

first_imgDutch companies Gasunie and Vopak and Germany’s  Oiltanking are in the process of establishing the joint venture named German LNG Terminal.The purpose of the joint venture is to build, own and operate an LNG import terminal in northern Germany that will also provide LNG distribution services, a Vopak statement reads.To attract interest from the market and to gain detailed insight in customer demand, the joint venture intends to launch an open season starting January 17.The terminal offers the opportunity to further diversify Germany’s sources of gas supply and facilitates access to LNG as an alternative low-emission fuel for ships and trucks, the statement said.The development of the LNG facility is currently focusing on the location Brunsbüttel. The presence of the adjacent port of Hamburg and the industrial companies located in the region represents an attractive business environment, it said.Via the Kiel Canal, in the direct proximity of the intended terminal, the Scandinavian countries and the Baltic States can easily be reached.The start of the open season marks an important milestone in the development of Germany’s first LNG terminal. The aim of the facility is to provide discharge and loading of LNG ships, storage of LNG, regasification and send out into the natural gas network and LNG distribution via trucks and barges.In July 2017, the three companies received EU antitrust approval to establish a joint venture.Subject to, among others, the outcome of the open season start of construction of Germany’s first LNG terminal is envisaged after final investment decision in 2019, to be ready for operations in the fourth quarter 2022, the statement said.last_img read more
