first_imgmoe. and Twiddle formerly had plans to perform at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado, this weekend along with Pigeons Playing Ping Pong. Unfortunately, following Rob Derhak’s diagnosis of oropharyngeal cancer and the subsequent indefinite hiatus that moe. has undergone while their bassist seeks treatment, the Red Rocks show was canceled. While the circumstances for the show’s cancellation are somber, moe. and Twiddle (through Twiddle’s nonprofit, White Light Foundation) have teamed up to make sure that some good comes from their planned joint Fans Create Fundraiser For Bassist Rob DerhakAs part of the marketing efforts for the Red Rocks performance, a flag with the details of the show was flown at two music festivals and above the Red Rocks parking lot. In order to raise money for the charity, the members of moe. and Twiddle have signed the flag and plan to auction it off. The proceeds will go to the charity of moe.’s choice, and the band has chosen the nonprofit MusiCares—an organization associated with The Recording Academy that provides safety nets for musicians and others in the music industry during their time of need. MusiCares is not only a non-profit near and dear to both bands’ hearts, but also a worthy, necessary organization with a mission is particularly relevant in light of Derhak’s ongoing medical expenses. You can check out the auction for yourself here. Please consider bidding on this piece of history and in turn supporting the musicians who so regularly fill our lives with joy during the times they need it most. The auction began on August 10th and will continue to run until August 30th.Check out and bid on moe. and Twiddle’s auction for the signed Red Rocks flag that will benefit the musical nonprofit, MusiCares here!Get well soon, Rob!last_img read more

first_imgAdditional bedrooms, a multipurpose room, study nook, utility rooms and a private courtyard are on the lower level.Each home also boasts a 3.12kW solar power system connected to a battery-ready, Home Energy Management System. The first stage of the Ison Collection will feature a modern take on the Queenslander-style home.It’s not quite a house but it’s more than your typical apartment or townhouse. Developer P3 Group is calling it the “City Home” – a scaled-down version of a typical house.Six four bedroom, tri-level city homes have been built in the Ison Collection, on Ison St at Morningside. A further six three bedroom tri-level city homes are being built as part of the adjacent Lawson Collection on Lawson St.Glenn Baird of P3 Projects, the developer, said the homes were a “21st century reimagination of the traditional Queenslander”.“Like the traditional Queenslander, the homes take advantage of natural light, open plan living, and cross way airflow,” he said.“They have taken on those qualities but then embraced that modern inner-city, low- maintenance lifestyle.” Mr Baird said the technology could easily run airconditioning and heating systems, and would cater for the addition of a battery-powered car in the future. Outside, artificial grass replaces the usual turfed lawns.“The use of artificial grass is still a bit unusual, it’s not typical in new developments, but these are all about low maintenance,” Mr Baird said. To date, two city homes have sold to a young professional family and empty-nesters, and one is under contract. Smaller than a typical house but bigger than an average townhouse, the 300sq m tri-level homes have been built on smaller, manageable lots, with residents entering the main living spaces from the second level.Entry to each home is via a landscaped courtyard or from the secure, two car automatic garage, with the spacious private master suite occupying the balance of the second level. The upper level comprises an Italian-made kitchen, generous living areas and an expansive entertainer’s terrace.

It’s like having a smaller house,” she said.Homes within the Lawson Collection are expected to be completed early next year, and offered to the market within the first quarter.Meanwhile, one of the two original character homes – Lawson – has been listed for sale, with the four-bedroom beauty fully renovated. The Ison character home will be up for grabs soon.All of the homes are within easy reach of the lifestyle hubs of Hawthorne and Bulimba, public transport corridors and the Brisbane River. “Our focus has been on delivering a lifestyle option with a low-maintenance footprint,” Mr Baird said.last_img read more

first_imgIn an effort to address questions about gender-neutral housing and bathrooms, the Queer & Ally Student Assembly hosted a Trans Town Hall Meeting on Monday.Neutral · Queer & Ally Student Assembly held Trans Town Hall Meeting on Monday to discuss gender-neutral housing on the Rainbow Floor at Century Apartments. – Kastalia Medrano | Daily TrojanA large majority of undergraduate students favor a limited trial of gender-neutral housing, according to a recent Undergraduate Student Government poll. About 80 percent of respondents reported favoring a pilot-program for gender-neutral housing on the Rainbow Floor at Century Apartments. The Rainbow Floor is a special interest residential community for LGBT students and allies that is open to all students.Several universities have adopted or approved some form of gender-neutral housing, including Stanford, Harvard and Dartmouth.Michael Kiyoshi Salvatore, assistant director of QuASA, said gender-neutral housing is important because it provides all students with equal opportunities.“There is a growing number of transgender-identifying students who want to live with members of the same sex,” Kiyoshi said. “The easiest option is to provide gender-neutral housing so they don’t have to go through any legal issues and can live in a safe environment.”last_img read more
