It is an issue that I have raised countless times in this chamber and in communications with the Minister, yet nothing seems to be done. Staff are at their wits end and the INMO have raised their concerns While there has been significant recruitment and 100 additional acute beds added the hospital still faces runaway overcrowding.”“The staff at our hospital have done an incredible job throughout the pandemic, they work in difficult and overcrowded conditions. We gave them applause, but what has not been delivered is appropriate capacity to cope with the large numbers presenting at our A&E Department. “Figures compiled by the INMO show that there have been in excess of 40 patients being treated on trolleys each day this week, with 953 patients having been treated on trolleys throughout April.Deputy Quinlivan added:“A 96-bed unit was committed to but only half of these will be new beds. The delivery of all 96 beds needs to be expedited. Day after day, the figures show that UHL remains the most overcrowded hospital in the state. The INMO wants to know what is going wrong and so do I. But more importantly, I would like to know what steps the government are taking to manage this issue?Deputy Quinlivan concluded: “I back the call for HIQA to visit, investigate and make recommendations at UHL.  I hope this will happen and I urged the Tánaiste in the Dail to support that call and commit to acting on any recommendations that HIQA make?” RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Linkedin Print Facebooklast_img read more

David Byrne Announces 15th Anniversary Vinyl Reissue Of 1994 ‘Grown Backwards’ Solo LP

first_imgDavid Byrne has announced the forthcoming reissue of his 2004 solo LP, Grown Backwards. The studio album, which was initially released on March 16th, 2004, will celebrate its 15th anniversary this spring when it arrives on vinyl for the first time via Nonesuch Records on March 15th. The album was Byrne’s last full-length solo project until American Utopia arrived in March of last year.The forthcoming reissue will include all 15 tracks originally featured on the album in addition to six new bonus recordings including a duet alongside Brazilian composer Caetano Veloso on a song titled, “Dreamworld”. The reissue will come in the form of a double LP pressed on 140g vinyl and will arrive in metallic sleeve packaging.According to a statement shared by Nonesuch, Bryne worked from the “top down” when initially developing the foundations of the songs which would end up on Grown Backwards. He began the process by humming melodies into a micro-cassette recorder and later unscrambling those raw musical ideas to develop what would ultimately end up as songs. That strategy marked a significant change from Byrne’s usual songwriting process. The album was recorded at Kampo Studios in New York City, where Byrne co-produced the project alongside Patrick Dillett.Related: David Byrne Reflects On Recent Trip To India’s Chennai Music Festival In New Blog Post Like many of Byrne’s projects, the recordings on Grown Backwards featured an enormous mix of instruments used in the tracking process. Clarinets, nylon-string guitars, euphoniums, prepared pianos, theremins, and even a vacuum cleaner were all used as instrumentation throughout the recording of the album.Byrne has kept a pretty low profile so far in 2019 after spending much of last year performing across the country in promotion of his Grammy-nominated American Utopia LP. The recorded performances captured throughout Byrne’s lengthy 2018 tour even resulted in a new live EP, titled, The Best Live Show Of All Time. Fans can click here to pre-order the forthcoming reissue, which costs a manageable $23 with a free digital download thrown in as well.last_img read more
