Searchin For a Rainbow

The Marshall Tucker Band

1975

Put together some not quite country, some elements of blues, and some great guitar playing with some free wheelin' jammin' and you've got the MTB. A really nice feel-good sound all around!

You can't beat this live version of "Can't You See", no wonder they saved it "best for last"! Love Toy Caldwell's 'whiskey and cigarettes" voice on this one plus the great instrumental jamming. A classic.

For someone who crows about helping the American steel industry ........

I wish some journalists would call Dumpy out on this!

Welcome to the Age of Climate Migration

"Most people don't realize how much climate affects everything, from their property values to how hard people work," says Solomon Hsiang, a professor of public policy at the University of California, Berkeley, who led a recent study that predicts, as the climate warms, there will be "a large transfer of value northward and westward." And the wealthy, who can afford to adapt, will benefit, while the poor, who will likely be left behind, will suffer. "If we continue on the current path," Hsiang says, "our analysis suggests that climate change may result in the largest transfer of wealth from the poor to the rich in the country's history."

Electrolux puts $250 million American investment on hold

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Sweden’s Electrolux (ELUXb.ST), Europe’s largest home appliance maker, said on Friday it would delay a planned $250 million investment in Tennessee, after U.S. President Donald Trump announced tariffs on imported aluminum and steel.

On Thursday, Trump said the duties — 25 percent on steel imports and 10 percent on aluminum — would be formally announced next week, although White House officials later said some details still needed to be ironed out.

“We are putting it on hold. We believe that tariffs could cause a pretty significant increase in the price of steel on the U.S. market,” Electrolux spokesman Daniel Frykholm said.

Electrolux buys all the steel it uses in its U.S. products domestically.

“So this is not the possibility of tariffs directly impacting our costs, but rather the impact it could have on the market and that it could damage the overall competitiveness of our operations in the U.S.,” Frykholm said.
