NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) – Two Nashville natives are missing after dedicating the last two years of their lives to helping the people of Haiti.

Charles and Candy Ritzen were most recently in Haiti helping with Hurricane Matthew relief.

According to a news outlet in the Dominican Republic, the couple boarded their plane with another man to head to the Dominican Republic.

On Monday night night, airport personnel lost contact with the plane.

The next day, authorities found wreckage of the Ritzens’ plane but did not find the couple.

Their friends said the couple moved to the Caribbean because they fell in love with the area and wanted to open dental clinics in Haiti.

Country music

unnamed-1By Pail McGowan From PS Audio

There’s all kinds of country music. Most of what I hear on the radio isn’t worth listening to. But the real music, the weepy, heartfelt, jazzy riffs, the fiddles, pedal steel guitar, the talent—the music you hear so rarely—touches my soul like few other forms of music.

Especially if it’s live.

We decided to head to Nashville to see what its music scene is like. What an unexpected pleasure.

Instead of big and expensive venues, nasty bouncers, and restrictive prohibitions on behavior, folks down south like their music up front, accessible and friendly. We were fortunate to get tickets to a sold out show at a small bar and grille in downtown Nashville, called 3d and Lindley. $20 a ticket to see Vince Gill and the Time Jumpers, some of the best musicians I have had the pleasure of listening to, with a big plus added in. Good sound. Really good sound.

Wow.

I took a not very good video from our upper deck vantage point and offer it here – see link below.

Enjoy.

By Pietro Aldobrandini From e-Agriculture

Location: George Town Guyana

This technical session will contribute to the implementation of CTA’s Caribbean flagship project by developing strategies and key activities to disseminate information for scaling up climate-resilient solutions for smallholder farmers working in two priority value chains in the region. The workshop participants will: i) Identify ways in which the knowledge of the impact of climate change on agriculture can be used to design targeted training courses for farmers to improve profitable agribusiness; ii) discuss opportunities, potential constraints and strategies to promote the use of ICTs to upscale climate-resilient solutions among farmers; and iii) Identify key field actions to help specific groups of farmers to adopt and scale up climate-resilient solutions that support profitable agribusiness in the region for the next three years.

Magnitude 5.8 earthquake strikes off Dominica island in Caribbean Sea

map1From The Straits Times

ROSEAU (REUTERS) – A magnitude 5.8 quake struck off the island of Dominica in the Caribbean Sea’s Lesser Antilles archipelago on Tuesday, the United States Geological Survey said.

The quake’s epicentre was some 24km west of the capital, Roseau, it said.

Although a magnitude-5.8 quake is capable of causing considerable damage, it was relatively deep, 148km below the seabed, which would mitigate its impact.

Dominica is a sovereign island with a population of about 72,500 people.

US: Rite Aid settles whistleblower lawsuit claiming it used gift cards to lure pharmacy customers

By Mary Beth Quirk From Consumerist

The feds say they’ve settled a lawsuit against pharmacy chain Rite Aid filed by a whistleblower who claimed the company used gift cards to lure Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries to switch their prescriptIons in a bid to gain business.

Rite Aid will pay out almost $3 million to settle the allegations, reports the Associated Press, without admitting any wrongdoing in the matter.

The suit filed by a Florida pharmacist claims that between 2008 and 2010, Rite Aid was in violation of the False Claims Act by offering up the gift cards to lure new business to its pharmacies.

Rite Aid, based in Camp Hill, P.A., says it denies the allegations but is glad the matter is resolved without any further litigation.

You may notice the buildings in the Town Centre will light up pink from 1-27 October to honour Breast Cancer Awareness Month. There are a number ways to give back, from an Opening Ceremony celebration to the 10th Annual Pilates for Pink to special salon and spa treatments at Eclipze Hair Design & Day Spa’s 16th Annual Cut-A-Thon.

Things turn eerie when the Town Centre lights up orange to celebrate all things Halloween from 28-31 October. Families can enjoy a pumpkin carving workshop, budding chefs can make frightfully fun treats, partygoers can dance away at Oktoberfest while kids can do the same at a Halloween Glow Party and moviegoers can enjoy a Frankenstein ballet on the big screen and family-friendly movies on a giant outdoor big screen. Everyone is invited to dress in their costumes for a 5K fun run while trick-or-treaters can also mark their calendars for the always anticipated Spooktacular.
