iStock(NEW YORK) — Two storms will move across the country and combine in the East to bring heavy snow and rain from the Rockies to the East Coast.Already yesterday, Phoenix had the rainiest day since October 2018 when they got more than 1 inch of rain. Several MLB practice games had to be cancelled or delayed yesterday in Phoenix, Arizona due to the record daily rainfall.In northern Arizona and New Mexico, up to 15 inches of snow fell and is still snowing.As these storms move east, 13 states from Washington to Arizona and east to Missouri are under flood and snow alerts.This morning these storms are moving through the West with one bringing heavy snow and rain to the Pacific Northwest and the other one in the Four Corners region of the southern Rockies.Snow is also expected in Denver today but the heaviest will be just to the south and west of the city.By Monday morning, the southern storm moves into the Plains and should bring heavy rain to the area where Flood Watches have been posted. Rain will also move into the very saturated south from Texas to Georgia where many rivers are still in flooding.The northern storm is expected to move through the northern Rockies and into the northern Plains with heavy snow.On Tuesday morning, however, these storms will begin to combine into one in the Midwest, bringing a hit of heavy snow to the Upper Midwest and the Great Lakes and possibly Chicago.To the South, heavy rain and thunderstorms are expected in the water logged states from Mississippi to the Carolinas!Take a look at the snowfall forecast in the Rockies and the Upper Midwest and the Great Lakes, some areas could see more than a half a foot.The rain will be the heaviest from Kansas to South Carolina where some areas could see more than 2 inches of rain with some possible flooding.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Just weeks after the inauguration of Europe’s biggest electric bus fleet, Transport for London contracted operator Go-Ahead has selected the BYD-ADL (Alexander Dennis Ltd) partnership to supply a fleet of 14 10.8m BYD ADL Enviro200 EV buses to operate its 360 route.The buses will be based at Go-Ahead’s Camberwell garage where BYD will install 14 of its own design charging postsThis is the first order BYD-ADL has won for the new 10.8m model.The buses will be based at Go-Ahead’s Camberwell garage where BYD will install 14 of its own design charging posts.Route 360 passes through some of the UK capital’s most prestigious areas, connecting South Kensington with Chelsea, Sloane Square and Vauxhall before terminating at the Elephant and Castle.Says Go-Ahead Group Engineering Director Richard Harrington: “The experience gained in electrifying routes 521 and 507 out of Waterloo was pivotal in deciding who to work with on route 360.“Having the confidence that the product can operate on London’s streets and is capable of running a whole day without the need to recharge put this product to the front of what is becoming a very competitive market.”Announcing the new order, for which BYD is prime contractor, BYD’s UK Country Manager Frank Thorpe says: “This underlines the strength of our joint offer and we again look forward to working with Go-Ahead London on this exciting project. We anticipate delivering the vehicles in the second half of 2017″.Robert Davey, ADL’s Group Commercial and Business Development Director, adds: “Along with our recent order from Merseyside this latest order illustrates the attractiveness of the BYD ADL Enviro200EV from an operational and passenger perspective, not to mention the benefits it provides to pedestrians and city dwellers with zero emissions.“The stylish British-built ADL bodywork mounted on BYD’s well proven chassis, and underpinned by the best aftermarket support in the business is truly a winning combination.”
Phish lighting master Chris Kuroda was recently recruited by 17-year-old phenom Martin Garrix for the young DJ’s consecutive weekend appearances at Coachella. Kuroda is well known within the Phish community, and was recently working with Justin Bieber.Both Garrix and Bieber are managed by Scooter Braun, so the collaboration isn’t totally out of left field.You can watch some of the Garrix Coachella set here:In an interview with Elle, Garrix commented on Kuroda’s involvement, saying, “I was so happy! We invested a lot of money in production. All the big shows, the really important shows, we’re going to fly in [Justin Bieber and Phish lighting guru Chris Kuroda]/ Those are like rock-music shows, with the lasers and stuff. Yesterday, with everybody in the crowd, I was like ‘Holy fucking shit!’”Kuroda is set to work with Phish for their upcoming appearance at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.-David Melamed (@DMelamz)
Rankings below are based on a mixture of expected output and DraftKings’ NASCAR salaries for that day. The ordering is not based on highest projected fantasy totals, but rather by value of each driver. (fppk = average fantasy points per $1,000 of salary. The typical median fppk for a 2016 race was in the 3s. Plate tracks tend to be lower and short tracks tend to run higher due to the amount of laps.)
The Notre Dame Symphony Orchestra and numerous Notre Dame choral groups will perform at the Beethoven Festival tonight at 8 p.m. in the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center as part of the celebration of the 200th anniversary of Fr. Edward Sorin’s birthday.The Notre Dame Glee Club along with the Notre Dame Liturgical Choir, Notre Dame Women’s Liturgical Choir and Notre Dame Celebration Choir, a total of more than 200 singers, are scheduled to perform several pieces by Ludwig van Beethoven. Pianist and artist-in-residence Daniel Schlosberg will substitute John Blacklow as the soloist.According to the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center’s website, the program consists of movements from Symphony No. 8, Choral Fantasy and Mass in C major.Basilica director of music Andrew McShane and professor Daniel Stowe, the conductor of the Notre Dame Symphony Orchestra and Glee Club director, began preparation for the concert in August. McShane said the biggest challenge was assembling and coordinating the sheer number of musicians involved in the festival, approximately 250 vocalists and instrumentalists combined.Stowe said he will direct Symphony No. 8 and Choral Fantasy, while McShane will direct the Mass in C major.Karen Schneider-Kirner, director of the Notre Dame Celebration Choir, said Beethoven’s pieces are well suited for large forces, and the festival was feasible since there are many student musicians within the Notre Dame community.“It’s a way for our students to hear the same texts we proclaim now at Mass, set musically by one of the greatest composers who ever lived, and we’ll be singing it in the original German,” Schneider-Kirner said. “It will also feature soloists, members of the Notre Dame community from Campus Ministry, our music department and the Masters in sacred music program.”The choirs rehearsed the pieces separately at the beginning of the semester and began rehearsing together in October. McShane and Schneider-Kirner said both of their choirs dedicated numerous hours each week to concert rehearsal.Schneider-Kirner said it was a challenge to add the extra rehearsal time on top of her choir’s liturgical responsibilities around campus. The Women’s Liturgical Choir performs at the weekly Saturday Vigil Mass, including Mass after home football games.Paul Kearney, president of the Notre Dame Glee Club, said it was a challenge to prepare for the concert while simultaneously preparing for the Glee Club’s fall tour and concert and their Christmas concerts in December.Those interested in attending the event can purchase regular admission tickets for $10 and student tickets for $5.Schneider-Kirner said the money will cover expenses incurred by the concert, including rental fees for instrumental parts, music scores for the choir and operating expenses for the concert hall.“People should come out to see a great night of music that showcases the collaboration of several University choirs and the genius of Beethoven,” Kearney said.McShane said he hopes to see the show sell out with about a thousand attendees.“Members of the ND Community who attend will also be amazed, I think, at the high level of talent on our campus,” Schneider-Kirner said. “We have a lot to be proud of, and music is a powerful way to express the wonderful texts the choir will be proclaiming at the concert.“It’s music that speaks to the heart and soul, even though it was written over 200 years ago.”Tags: Beethoven Festival, Concert, Fr.

Circle K, one of the largest service clubs on campus, has partnered with Flaherty Hall to start a new event this year called Electric Mile. For $5, participants can participate in a mile-long walk or run from Main Building to Flaherty Hall from 8 to 9 p.m. on Friday, and all proceeds will help the South Bend Center for the Homeless provide bus passes to the homeless.Senior Christina Kappil, the president of Circle K who has been coordinating the event, said the event is intended to demonstrate what a difference not having to walk everywhere would make in the lives of homeless people.“In the wintertime, they have to walk to their jobs,” she said. “They have to walk miles and miles each day. This would alleviate that — especially in the winter — [so] that they can get to their jobs and help them get to a better place in their life.”aSince the event is neon-themed, Circle K and Flaherty will be providing free glow sticks — as well as free hot chocolate and donuts — and they recommend that students wear their hall apparel. The event will end with a reception that will include music and food in the Flaherty courtyard, and a representative from the Center for the Homeless will speak about how the money will be used and what the center does.Kappil said Circle K leaders had the idea to start the event after a club member discovered the Center for the Homeless needed bus passes, but did not have the budget to cover them.“That was coincidentally when Flaherty Hall was opening,” she said. “We had partnered with Knott Hall to do various events, so we thought we could do this with a woman’s dorm.”Kappil said she has liked working with the women of Flaherty Hall, since the groups have different resources and ideas.“Meeting new people and having a vision together and seeing it implemented is a really cool aspect of planning it,” she said.Her favorite part of the event, though, will be knowing the money is directed toward a good cause, Kappil said, and she hopes the two groups can repeat the event next year.“If Flaherty wants to continue and actually make this their signature event, we would love to work with them,” Kappil said. “Ideally we could continue working with them in the future.”Circle K and Flaherty are expecting about 150 participants and hope to raise $900 from Electric Mile, which will take place outside — regardless of the weather — in solidarity with the homeless, Kappil said.“It’s a fun event, but it’s supposed to be in solidarity for the residents,” she said. “There is no rain date — it’s rain or shine. That’s part of walking in solidarity with these people who have to walk in tough conditions to get to work.”Tags: Circle K, Electric Mile, flaherty hall, South Bend Center for the Homeless
