Family of dead hiker struggles with 'deepest grief' - The Boston Globe

Monday, January 16, 2017

Christmas Eve. Jack Holden, a 26-year-old who loved the quiet of the wilderness, was going up a peak in the White Mountains called Bondcliff, famous for its jutting rocks and panoramic views. He would be back by 10 or 11 p.m., he texted his parents.Sally Holden didn’t worry. Jack had been at home in the forest since he was a Cub Scout. He had been an Eagle Scout and spent time in the Yukon in Canada. On Saturday, he had a pack full of gear, including a locator beacon he could activate if he got in trouble. On Christmas, his family planned a big brunch and dinner.But Jack Holden never came back to his parents’ house in Jefferson, in Central Massachusetts. The rescue team that followed his footsteps on Christmas Day from the Lincoln Woods trailhead for about 9 miles to Bondcliff found his body at the summit just after 8 p.m. Sunday, officials said.His jacket was unzipped and upside down, as if hypothermia had beset him, leaving him confused. He had not deployed his beacon. He may have thought he could save himself.Get Fast Forward in your inbox:Forget yesterday's news. Get what you need today in this early-morning email.“It’s the deepest grief we’ve ever known,” Sally Holden said in a quiet voice during a phone interview Tuesday. “I don’t know anyone in the world who was loved so deep...

Hurray for the Riff Raff Announces New LP 'The Navigator' - Glide Magazine

Monday, January 02, 2017

The Navigator was produced by Paul Butler (Michael Kiwanuka, St. Paul and The Broken Bones, Devendra Banhart) and recorded at Electric Lady Studios in NYC and Panoramic House in California. The album features percussionists Juan-Carlos Chaurand, Gregory Rogove (Rodrigo Amarante), a trio of Bomba drummers, and Doo Wop singers from New Jersey.The 12 original songs were inspired by Segarra’s own journey from the South Bronx to the downtown punk scene and beyond, in search of her identity. She looked to poetry including Pedro Pietri’s ‘Puerto Rican Obituary’ and the Nuyorican Cafe, the singer-songwriter Rodriguez, Puerto Rican activist groups the Young Lords and the Ghetto Brothers, Fania Records and more. Lead single “Rican Beach” addresses the gentrification of the South Bronx and the co-opting of Puerto Rican culture in NYC and beyond. The razor-sharp rock of “Living In The City” tells the story of a city on fire, inhospitable to the marginalized. “Hungry Ghost” is an introspective anthem about Navita trying to find her voice. “Nothing’s Gonna Change That Girl” foreshadows the emergence of The Navigator, a super heroine that saves her people from a dystopian future by reconnecting them with their ancestors and pride.Says Alynda: This is dedicated to the water protectors of Standing Rock – thank you for your bravery and giving us hope. Also, to the people of Peñuelas, Puerto Rico, who are demanding an end to the AES dumping of coal ash which leads to water contamination – we are with you. All over the world there are heroes, who, despite suffering generations of oppression, are protecting the land and the future of our humanity.
