This beautiful composition by Andy McKee has a bittersweet quality that evokes emotion and distinctive technique that has fostered innovation in contemporary finger-style guitar. “Rylynn” was one of the compositions that propelled Andy McKee’s YouTube celebrity when it was first uploaded in 2006; today the video has over 28 million views. It was this video that caught the attention of Prince who asked Andy to join him for a series of shows in Australia in 2012.
“Rylynn” was first released in 2005 on the CD Andy McKee/Art of Motion (CandyRat Records). Then, in 2007, a video recording was released on the DVD Andy McKee/Antoine Dufour (CandyRat Records). This printed music is a note-for-note transcription of the performance from the DVD which is now available at candyrat.com
After seven years of upgrades, the Advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatories were dedicated on Tuesday at the LIGO Hanford facility near Richland, Washington.
The facilities are located amid the tumbleweeds of southeastern Washington and the pines of southeastern Louisiana. They’re designed to detect the faint signature of gravitational waves given off by supernovas, black hole collisions and other cosmic crashes.
Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity predicts that such waves should exist, but they have never been detected directly. The Advanced LIGO experiment, funded by the National Science Foundation and operated by Caltech and MIT, is expected to change that. It could do for gravitational waves what Europe’s Large Hadron Collider did for the equally elusive Higgs boson.
Photographs showing a North Korean missile launched from a submarine were manipulated by state propagandists and the country may be years away from developing such technology, analysts and a top U.S. military official said on Tuesday.
North Korea, sanctioned by the United States and United Nations for its missile and nuclear tests, said on May 9 it had successfully conducted an underwater test-fire of a submarine-launched ballistic missile which, if true, would indicate progress in its pursuit of missile-equipped submarines.
On Wednesday, North Korea warned the United States not to challenge its sovereign right to boost military deterrence and boasted of its ability to miniaturise nuclear warheads, a claim it has made before and which has been widely questioned by experts and never verified.
Master Hartley is the finest unknown guitar player that you will never hear, and I’ve heard a lot of unknown greats at small venues in my sixty years of travel. Here is what he has to say regarding BB King and his vexing challenge to all musicians.
Today, Lucille is a widow. Is there any guitar player of the past 60 years who hasn’t been influenced by him? He had a deceptively simple playing style…but just try to reproduce that tone (and that vibrato…Jesus, that vibrato). God knows, I’ve tried (and I’ve been playing for 40 years). With his innate and effortless stage cool, he made it look natural and easy; but each one of those smooth, economical lead lines were plucked directly from his blue, blue soul. His interpretation was singular and elemental. Long live the King…
What can one detail tell us about a scene? If you’re Lynne Ramsay: absolutely everything. Today I consider the poetic possibilities of cinema and one of our finest contemporary filmmakers.

Every time Microsoft develops a new version of Windows, people hope that there will be fewer variants and sub-versions than before. Every time, those hopes are dashed.
Windows 10 isn’t going to change any of that.
Microsoft has just announced the set of Windows 10 SKUs, and there are seven of them, plus some others not mentioned.
The first few editions are straightforward. Windows 10 Home, Windows 10 Pro, and Windows 10 Enterprise will fill the same roles as their Windows 8.1 namesakes. Home will be the mainstream consumer version. Pro will add most of the management features (such as domain joining) that Home lacks. Enterprise will add further management capabilities and will only be available through volume licensing agreements.
A second major earthquake has struck Nepal just a fortnight after the first, causing tremors as far away as Delhi and sending people running into streets and open areas. We spoke to some of those who felt the ground shake.
Steve Collins has lived in Kathmandu for three years. He works for DEC aid agency Tearfund and was at the agency’s offices when the earthquake struck.
“Everything suddenly started shaking. It wasn’t too severe at first and we all managed to get out of the building, then when we were in the yard outside everything started shaking very strongly and we were all bending down on the ground to stop from falling over, and keeping as far away from the walls as possible.
With puzzling variability, vast numbers of birds from Canada’s boreal forests migrate hundreds or thousands of miles south from their usual winter range. These so-called irruptions were first noticed by birdwatchers decades ago, but the driving factors have never been fully explained. Now scientists have pinpointed the climate pattern that likely sets the stage for irruptions — a discovery that could make it possible to predict the events more than a year in advance.
The researchers found that persistent shifts in rainfall and temperature drive boom-and-bust cycles in forest seed production, which in turn drive the mass migrations of pine siskins, the most widespread and visible of the irruptive migrants. “It’s a chain reaction from climate to seeds to birds,” says atmospheric scientist Court Strong, an assistant professor at the University of Utah and lead author of the study.
Many seed-eating boreal species are subject to irruptions, including Bohemian and cedar waxwings, boreal chickadees, red and white-winged crossbills, purple finches, pine and evening grosbeaks, red-breasted nuthatches, and common and hoary redpolls. The authors focused on the pine siskin, a species featured prominently in earlier work on irruptive migrations.
