The SpaceX Transporter-1 mission set to launch today will put 133 commercial and government spacecraft, as well as 10 more Starlink satellites, in orbit. SpaceX says that’s “the most spacecraft ever deployed on a single mission” — the previous record holder, an Indian Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle, ferried only 104 satellites to space. In addition to having a record-breaking payload, Transporter-1 is also the first dedicated launch under the SmallSat Rideshare Program SpaceX announced back in 2019.
Courtesy Gingko Press IncThe elegantly attired, 4’11” great grandmother might not have been easily identifiable as a music mogul to the industry insiders attending the American Association of Independent Music Awards at Manhattan’s Highline Ballroom on that day in the summer of 2015. Then Patricia Chin, co-founder of reggae label VP Records, stepped up to the stage to receive the group’s Lifetime Achievement Award, the first woman ever to have done so. “As I look out at the audience tonight, I imagine that many of you may be asking yourselves, ‘who is this Chinese lady with this big Jamaican accent, and what is VP Records?’” said Miss Pat, (as she is affectionately known) in her acceptance speech, to roaring applause. “In large part the story of VP Records is about a woman working behind the scenes and her journey for the past 50 years in the reggae music industry.”VP Records, established in Queens, New York, in 1979, with additional offices in Kingston, London, Miami, Rio de Janeiro, and Tokyo, is the world’s largest independent label, distributor, and publisher of reggae and dancehall music, controlling more than 25,000 song titles. In her forthcoming glossy coffee table memoir, Pat Chin: Miss Pat My Reggae Music Journey, Miss Pat tells VP’s story, which is inextricably tied to the development of Jamaica’s recording industry and the birth of ska, rocksteady and reggae. Miss Pat offers historical anecdotes about recording sessions with Bob Marley and Lee “Scratch” Perry when both were seeking greater fortunes. Accolades for Miss Pat are found throughout, including one from hip-hop godfather DJ Kool Herc, who says: “What Berry Gordy was to Motown, Patricia Chin is to VP Records and the reggae industry.” Courtesy Gingko Press Inc In the book’s most compelling passages, Miss Pat courageously details her life’s greatest challenges: the death of her infant son; fleeing Jamaica’s explosive politics of the 1970s, struggling to acclimate to another society; defying the sexist and racist attitudes she encountered as a non-white female working in the music business in New York City; becoming educated about alcoholism to help her embattled husband, VP Records co-founder, Vincent “Randy” Chin, who passed away in 2003; coping with the unsolved murder of her grandson, VP A&R Joel Chin, in 2011. “The process of writing my book was freeing,” Miss Pat told The Daily Beast in an early December interview via Zoom. “I wanted my book to be truthful, entertaining and interesting so I couldn’t leave out personal details, I want people to get to know me better instead of seeing me as just a music person.”The reggae matriarch, now 83, was born Dorothy Patricia Williams on Sept. 20, 1937; her maternal and paternal grandparents migrated to Jamaica, respectively, from China and India, seeking better lives. “It was hard to survive where they came from, so they took a chance on Jamaica,” recalled Miss Pat, who was raised in a single room house in Kingston’s Greenwich Farm community. “Despite our lack of material comforts, there was never time for complaints. My mother shared stories about her hardworking shopkeeper parents and the innovative tricks they used to do business with their customers, despite the language barrier,” she writes. Miss Pat’s father wanted her to work in a bank, but, inspired by her idol Mother Teresa, she studied nursing at Kingston’s University of The West Indies. Inheriting her mother’s rebellious spirit, Miss Pat relished the freedom of living on campus, where she was often visited by a handsome young man, Vincent Chin, much to her father’s disapproval. “Known for skipping school and smoking marijuana, Vincent was your typical bad boy, the kind of suitor no parent wanted for their daughter,” Miss Pat writes. “To make it worse, he had already fathered a child (Clive) who was a toddler. My father saw my suitor for what he was: trouble.”On March 15, 1957, Miss Pat, then 19 years old, left school and married Vincent, two weeks before giving birth to their son, Gregory. He died from meningitis on his first birthday. “For the sake of my well-being,” penned Miss Pat, “I was never told where my infant son was laid to rest.” Vincent and Pat’s son Christopher was born four months later.Are Jamaica’s Biggest Stars Leaving Reggae Behind?Vincent got a job, stocking jukeboxes across the island with new 7” records; Miss Pat believed that the older discs could be sold directly to the public. In 1959 they set up a shop within a small grocery store selling the used records. They called their business Randy’s Record Mart, after Randy Wood, owner of WHIN AM, a jazz, R&B, and country music station in Tennessee that Vincent faithfully listened to on his shortwave radio. In 1961 Vincent and Miss Pat moved to an 8’ x 10’ space within a Chinese restaurant located at 17 North Parade, a bustling area of downtown Kingston, next to a central bus route; they set up a small speaker box outside playing music, which brought in customers. Sales increased and with a loan from Miss Pat’s father, the couple eventually bought out the Chinese restaurant and purchased the building. Shortly thereafter, Vincent and Pat acquired the building next door and began building a recording studio. Courtesy Gingko Press Inc The opening of Studio 17 upstairs from Randy’s Record Mart coincided with the development of Jamaica’s first popular music form, ska, which led to a proliferation in recordings that Studio 17 helped expedite. “In those days, there was no one stop studio where one could complete their work, start to finish. You had to go to one place to do a recording, another to do the mastering. With more and more artists and producers emerging, and with the existing studios charging high fees, we designed the studio to be a full house production so that we could be completely independent,” writes Miss Pat, who would play the test pressings of recordings in the shop to gauge the customers’ interest and then choose which songs they would press in bulk for sale.Vincent Chin started producing his own records and one of his biggest hits arrived in 1962, the year of Jamaica’s independence from England. “Independent Jamaica” didn’t incorporate the island’s indigenous ska beat, it was a calypso sung by Trinidadian born, Kingston based Lord Creator; nonetheless, it became an anthem for the new nation’s optimism, released on Randy’s Creative Calypso label.Miss Pat stocked the shop with at least one record by every artist she knew of and asked aspiring artists and producers to leave their records on consignment, which laid the foundation for Randy’s wholesale division. Music lovers flocked to Randy’s to hear the latest records while producers sought out the singers and musicians that would frequent an adjacent alley called Idler’s Rest (“the unofficial epicenter of Jamaican music,” Miss Pat writes) to record tracks at Studio 17. Many icons of Jamaican music recorded there, including singers Gregory Isaacs, Dennis Brown and Alton Ellis, harmony trios The Wailers and The Maytals and seminal ska outfit, The Skatalites.Several classic roots reggae albums were recorded at Studio 17, including The Wailers’ Soul Rebel, Burning Spear’s Marcus Garvey, Peter Tosh’s Equal Rights and melodica master Augustus Pablo’s debut This Is Augustus Pablo, the latter produced by Pablo’s school mate, Vincent’s son Clive.Clive also produced Pablo’s (still) influential single, “Java” and Studio 17’s first international hit, Carl Malcolm’s “Fattie Bum-Bum,” which reached No. 8 on the UK singles chart. The late American singer Johnny Nash, reportedly the first non-Jamaican to record rocksteady/reggae on the island, was so impressed by Studio 17, he booked the facility for three consecutive months. Miss Pat attributes Studio 17’s success to Vincent’s amiable personality. “He loved everyone regardless of how poor they were; many musicians didn’t even have shoes on their feet, but Vincent would bring them into the studio, encourage them. Everything was experimentation, we didn’t have a reggae culture yet, it started from that time,” notes Miss Pat.Due to escalating political violence in Jamaica throughout the 1970s, Vincent and Pat migrated to the U.S. “At that time (under Prime Minister Michael Manley’s socialist government) if you owned a business, you had a little more money than the others and with the unrest and riots going on, we felt very uncomfortable, and worried about the safety of our children,” Miss Pat acknowledged. They chose New York City because Vincent’s brother was living in Brooklyn, where he established Chin Randy’s Records. Vincent and his sons Clive and Christopher landed at New York City’s JFK airport in the summer of 1977. Miss Pat remained in Kingston with her two younger children, Vincent (a.k.a. Randy) Jr. and Angela; they joined the family in New York City the following year.Vincent and Pat started their new endeavor by renting a small storefront near the elevated train tracks along Queens’ Jamaica Avenue, from which they supplied reggae records to a few outlets. When the Jamaican government began clamping down on exports, Vincent and Pat started pressing their own records in New York; as their sales increased, they purchased a building at 170-21 Jamaica Ave in 1979 from another wholesale record business owner, Sam Kleinholt. The Chins named their reggae wholesale/retail store VP Records, the initials of Vincent and Pat’s first names. They hired Kleinholt’s secretary, Rhoda Bernstein, who worked with VP for 15 years, until her death. “She was a godsend,” Miss Pat writes, “she taught us everything she thought would help us adjust; to say she made our transition into New York life easier is an understatement.”Not all New Yorkers were as welcoming. Miss Pat remembers wanting to purchase a home in the (then) predominantly white community of Jamaica Estates, about two miles from VP Records; her real estate broker discouraged her, without explanation. “Years after, I realized I couldn’t buy there because we were of a different culture, there was a color barrier,” she notes, “he wanted to put me in another area where I would be more ‘comfortable.’” Miss Pat also recalled instances when VP customers called the store, got her on the line and asked to speak to a man instead. “They thought I didn’t know the music,” she reminisced. “I worked hard on my skills; we had so much music coming out every day, I had to know the name of the record, the singer, the producer, the rhythm track; I was like an encyclopedia, I knew everything about the music.” Courtesy Gingko Press Inc As VP Records grew into a thriving one stop shop covering all facets of Jamaican music, in 1990 the Chins purchased two large warehouses, one in Jamaica, Queens, the other in Miami. As the decade progressed, Jamaican dancehall reggae exploded in popularity as several of the genre’s superstars (including Shabba Ranks, Super Cat) signed to major record labels and impacted a wider American market. VP had distributed these artists’ records for years, so their familiarity with the music became an indispensable asset to the majors in furthering dancehall’s appeal. The Chins’ next move was establishing the VP Records label in 1993, the same year they launched their most successful annual reggae/dancehall compilation series, Reggae Gold.VP Records’ 1999 release “Who Am I” by Beenie Man was a certified gold single. Even greater triumphs arrived with Sean Paul, who was signed to VP by Clive’s son Joel Chin, in 2000. VP entered into a partnership with Atlantic Records, propelled by Sean’s big hit “Gimme The Light.” Sean’s two-time platinum selling sophomore album Dutty Rock won a Grammy for Best Reggae Album. “That was the moment we took a deep gasp and realized, as we Jamaicans would say, ‘dis a nuh joke ting we a deal wid,’” writes Miss Pat.Vincent, however, was uninspired by dancehall; he became depressed and was, according to Miss Pat, “mentally checking out of the business.” He struggled with alcoholism, which included several stays in rehab. Miss Pat writes that Vincent’s excessive drinking was linked to “a troubled spirit,” that she tied all the way back to his childhood, and “his parents’ mixed-race marriage. Vincent’s father was prominent in the Chinese Jamaican community, but he didn’t interact with his Black wife within that community. I believe this unspoken prejudice caused my husband to develop a deep sense of insecurity, resentment and sadness.” Miss Pat recalls her mother enduring a similar dilemma, because her parents disapproved of their daughter’s marriage to an Indian man. “My grandparents made up with my father and mother, but it took them 12 years because 100 years ago, marrying outside of your (Chinese) culture was a no-no. But my parents were in love and survived all the barriers.” Miss Pat’s father was also an alcoholic and her mother tried to conceal that from Pat and her siblings, just as Miss Pat shielded her children from the truth. “Not being honest with my children is one of my biggest regrets, it’s the only thing I would do differently, if given the chance,” Miss Pat reveals.Vincent and Pat’s son Randy, VP’s President, gave up his successful career in aeronautics to join the family business in 1995; Christopher is the company CEO and Angela runs the Florida warehouse/distribution center. Clive has intermittently worked with VP but has also pursued numerous independent projects. In December 2014 he filed a lawsuit against VP seeking $3 million, alleging the company licensed songs he wrote and recorded at Studio 17 without his permission; that lawsuit was quietly resolved.In addition to the award at the Highline Ballroom, one of Miss Pat’s proudest moments was VP Records’ 25th anniversary concert at Manhattan’s Radio City Music Hall in 2004, headlined by various acts associated with the company over the years, including Beenie Man, Shaggy and Beres Hammond. “That was the first time I saw my name in lights and with all the people lining up to come in, I was overjoyed. For one night, reggae had taken over an iconic American landmark. If I didn’t know before that, that anything was possible, I knew it then,” she writes. In 2007 VP Records acquired its chief competitor, the UK’s Greensleeves Records, and their catalogue of 12,000 songs, to become the largest independent reggae company in the world. That imposing status is the crowning result of Miss Pat’s remarkable and still ongoing journey. “It took a while for this to sink in,” she pens. “When you’ve built something from the ground up, the memories of selling records in your 8’ x 10’ shop never quite leave you.”CIA, Guns, and Rasta: Inside the Making of Reggae’s Most Iconic FilmRead more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

Pembroke Pines, FL, Jan. 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Change can be unnerving, simply because it presents us with something new, something we have not seen before. Uncertainty around changing circumstances makes it difficult to prepare for the future. Yet, preferred or not, change is a constant in life and can actually be a positive force! With the right resources and approach, one can efficiently navigate changes for the better. This is a reality that the cruise industry is learning amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 Protocols and the Travel Industry The travel industry has been one of the hardest-hit industries in the world. Airlines, cruise lines, and railways have all seen the demand for their services fall dramatically. Cruises, in particular, have been finding new ways to navigate all the changes that the global pandemic has brought with it. Popular cruise line Incruises, for example, has reduced the number of people aboard each cruise to allow for social distancing. In addition, it is required for cruisers to wear masks and follow other sanitation practices. In addition to the changes made aboard, it also does not hurt that most cruise ship passengers who had their cruises delayed or cut short at the onset of the pandemic have decided to receive credit for a future cruise - versus opting for a refund. Many of the small islands that depend on cruise ship docking to help their economies are also creating special tourist corridors to accommodate visitors again - including those of cruises. This is a positive trajectory for cruise lines and the wider international travel community. Changes in cruises With the changes we’ve already mentioned, one thing that many people will appreciate is an upgraded medical center in case of an outbreak. There are also expected to be daily temperature checks and regular testing where necessary. Sanitization stations will be a dime a dozen across the length and breadth of the cruise ship, and more. Of course, there are still plenty of opportunities to have fun on board. There will be lots of virtual reality and simulation options available to ensure that the entertainment options while aboard are wide and varied. Dinners will feature crew members serving guests as an alternative to the typical buffet meal serving style and tables for those opting to dine in will be spread sufficiently apart to facilitate social distancing protocols. There is also the option to take food to go whenever you want, if you want to eat away from others. All these changes are designed to keep passengers safe while ensuring they have all the fun in the world. The Added Economic Bonus of Cruise Liners Like Incruises International Launched in May 2016, Incruises International is the world's largest subscription-based membership cruise club where members can use cruise dollars to travel on cruises. Importantly, there are compensation options and financial incentives to be had from these memberships. Considering changed travel protocols, together with reduced costs, it’s pretty clear that the business model of Incruises will help them moving forward. After all, chances are that many of the changes and protocols implemented this year will be maintained long into 2021 and perhaps even 2022. The psychological benefits of being able to go on a cruise and get a much-needed mental and physical break are always welcomed. That said, it does not hurt that membership cruise lines, like Incruises, offer up a way for members to save and earn money while they enjoy an awesome vacation - albeit a shorter one. It's likely that cruise trips are going to be shorter in order to promote safety. CONTACT: firstname.lastname@example.org
Palm Beach, Florida, Jan. 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hurricane seasons are known for the damage they create to certain communities, and the Lake Charles region is an area that has been hit hard in recent years. Once the storms blow through, and the danger is out of the way, the clean-up and rebuilding process begins. Red Cliff Builders is the leader in disaster recovery, and they help rebuild homes, businesses, and lives. They have been very busy in Lake Charles, LA, and there are a number of projects that have to be completed to call the area 'rebuilt.' Here are a few things that many homes and businesses experience. Water Damage One of the dangers that hurricanes bring with them is simply water. Water seems like no big deal, but it can cause a lot of damage when it gets into a structure. Getting water out once it has gotten in is hard enough, but then cleaning up the mess it leaves behind is even more challenging. Water damage, if not adequately dried out and cleaned, can lead to dangerous mold. No home or business is going to be safe and up and running again until any water damage is addressed. It can also cause structural damage, like rotting wood, that needs to be replaced before the rebuild can continue. Broken Windows While some people in this area of the country have hurricane windows to combat these storms, many homes and businesses do not. That means they are susceptible to broken glass and all of the damage that comes along with a breached window. These homes and companies have to fix the windows to fight off any of the other elements that might come their way. It might be as simple as replacing the glass, but it might also require a full window replacement. And then, there's the clean up inside that could be significant, depending on what the broken window let into the space. Clearing Debris Part of rebuilding a community is simply getting the debris that has been thrown around out of the way. There are tree limbs and all sorts of things that have been tossed here and there, and removing those items is a big job. But it's also a job that has to be done so the builders can get to work on the structures. Sometimes, roads are blocked, and it can be hard to get supplies in and out. Working on the interior of a home is great, but it's not complete until the debris is removed from the outside of the house, either. Offering Support When people go through hurricane storms and see their homes, businesses, and entire community destroyed, merely being there and offering a helping hand to start the rebuilding process can mean a lot. They no longer feel alone and like they are up against an insurmountable mountain of a job. Everyone around the community comes together, pitching in and making results happen on a daily basis. While it's a big job, the more people help, the faster change happens. While companies like Red Cliff Builders are professionals who are able to restore homes to their former glory, there are a lot of other jobs that need to be done as well. Red Cliff Builders has shown that there is hope for restoration after disaster strikes. Thanks to them, Lake Charles, LA is being rebuilt, one structure at a time. CONTACT: email@example.com

Kristin Cavallari and boyfriend Jeff Dye recently split, PEOPLE confirms
DALLAS — Joe Pavelski had two goals and two assists and Alexander Radulov also scored twice, helping Dallas beat the Nashville Predators 7-0 on Friday night in the Stars’ delayed season opener. The Stars unveiled their Western Conference championship banner, and then rolled past the Predators. Anton Khudobin stopped 34 shots in his first season-opening start, and Joel Kiviranta had a goal and an assist. Five of Dallas’ goals came in the second period, including three power-play goals and an unassisted short-handed wrist shot by Esa Lindell. The Stars were the last NHL team to open the season after their first four games, all scheduled on the road, were postponed because 17 players tested positive for COVID-19 during the abbreviated training camp. Nashville played for the first time since Monday, a day before its second of back-to-back games against Carolina was postponed because of virus issues for the Hurricanes. COYOTES 5, GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Conor Garland had a goal and an assist, Darcy Kuemper stopped 29 shots and Arizona handed Vegas its their first loss of the season. The Coyotes bounced back from a drubbing two nights earlier in Vegas with one of their best games of the early season. Arizona's Nick Schmaltz scored for the third straight game and had an assist. Christian Dvorak also had a goal and an assist. Derick Brassard scored his first of the season and Jordan Oesterle closed it out with an empty-net goal. Vegas’ Shea Theodore scored his third goal in two games and had an assist. Cody Glass scored his first goal and Robin Lehner allowed four goals on 25 shots for the Golden Knights (4-1). PENGUINS 4, RANGERS 3, SO PITTSBURGH (AP) — Kris Letang scored in the final round of a shootout to lift Pittsburgh to the victory. Letang ripped a backhand over Igor Shesterkin to put the Penguins in front. Tristan Jarry collected his first win of the season when he stuffed New York’s Tony DeAngelo moments later. Bryan Rust and Jared McCann collected their first goals of the season for Pittsburgh, which has won three straight following an 0-2 start. Teddy Blueger also scored, and Jarry finished with 31 saves. Filip Chytil, Adam Fox and Kaapo Kakko scored for New York, which blew a 3-1 lead. Shesterkin made 26 stops but let in two of the three shots he faced in the shootout. CAPITALS 4, SABRES 3, SO WASHINGTON (AP) — Jakub Vrana had a goal and an assist, Vitek Vanecek made 24 saves through overtime and the short-handed Capitals beat the Sabres 4-3 in their home opener. Nicklas Backstrom and Nic Dowd also scored for the Capitals, who won the first of four games they must play without captain Alex Ovechkin, centre Evgeny Kuznetsov, defenceman Dmitry Orlov and goaltender Ilya Samsonov because of pandemic protocols. Vanecek was perfect in the shootout to pick up his second victory of the season. Defenceman John Carlson scored the shootout winner. Buffalo rookie Dylan Cozens scored his first NHL goal in the second period. Eric Staal and Riley Sheahan each scored his first goal since joining the Sabres. Linus Ullmark made 29 saves. BLACKHAWKS 4, RED WINGS 1 CHICAGO (AP) — Patrick Kane had a goal and an assist, and the Blackhawks earned their first win of the season. Andrew Shaw, Calvin de Haan and Mattias Janmark also scored for Chicago in its home opener after beginning the season with a four-game trip. Dylan Strome and Alex DeBrincat each had two assists. Kevin Lankinen, a 25-year-old rookie signed by Chicago as a free agent in 2018, stopped 30 shots in picking up his first NHL victory in his second straight start. Dylan Larkin scored for Detroit, and Thomas Greiss stopped 24 shots. WILD 4, SHARKS 1 ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Zach Parise scored his first goal of the season to break a second-period tie, sending Minnesota to the victory. Joel Eriksson Ek had an early goal for the Wild against former teammate Devan Dubnyk, who made 25 saves for the Sharks on the Minnesota ice he called home for the previous six years. Kevin Fiala and Jordan Greenway added empty-netters for the Wild (4-1-0) in their home opener, maintaining momentum from their strong start on the road. Matt Nieto scored for the Sharks (2-3-0) and their travelling show, five games into a season-opening eight-game trip that will likely grow longer given local virus restrictions preventing them from on-ice activity in San Jose. MAPLE LEAFS 4, OILERS 2 TORONTO (AP) — John Tavares broke a tie on a power play midway through the third period, helping the Maple Leafs to the win. Toronto played without Auston Matthews and Joe Thornton. Coach Sheldon Keefe said before the game Matthews is day to day with “upper-body soreness” following a 3-1 loss to the Oilers on Wednesday night, while Thornton will miss at least four weeks after fracturing a rib in that game. Adam Brooks scored his first NHL goal for Toronto, which improved to 4-2-0. Jimmy Vesey and Mitch Marner also scored, and Frederik Andersen made 30 saves. Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl scored for Edmonton, and Mikko Koskinen stopped 25 shots. The Oilers are 2-4-0. ___ More AP NHL coverage: https://apnews.com/hub/NHL and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports The Associated Press
