Artist Bio By D.J. Grothe Name: Annie Troe Age: 54 Hometown: Lincoln, Ne Medium/Style: Heavy Body Acrylics

What are you currently working on? “I’m currently in the process of turning some of the pet portraits and animals I’ve painted into an art collection for licensing. It’s fun to dress up the animals with glasses, hats, and other accessories.” Where do you see your art in the future? “I have coastal themed mats and rugs that just came out in June, a Chicken Scratch fabric line coming out this fall, and Christmas cards and ornaments for the holidays. I see a lot more of that in the future, as well as getting to know more fuzzy loved ones and their families through my pet portraits!”

What inspires and influences your work the most? “I simply LOVE animals! They inspire me very much, especially their eyes. Fur is really fun to paint, too! It’s such an honor when I get to do a pet portrait for someone. I’m also drawn to anything that makes me smile. It is such a wonderful thing if my art brightens up someone else’s world.” Who’s the artist you admire most? “I really love the juicy colors and soft When did you start pursuing your art? edges in Dreama Tolle Perry’s work. “I was always one of ‘those kids’ who She’s an impressionistic oil painter loved making things!

Epidiolex-treated patients in the clinical trials were: sleepiness, sedation and lethargy; elevated liver enzymes; decreased appetite; diarrhea; rash; fatigue, malaise and weakness; insomnia, sleep disorder and poor quality sleep; and infections.

Epidiolex’s effectiveness was studied in three randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials involving 516 patients with either Lennox-Gastaut syndrome or Dravet syndrome. Epidiolex, taken along with other medications, was shown to be effective in reducing the frequency of seizures when compared with placebo.

Under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), CBD is currently a Schedule I substance because it is a chemical component of the cannabis plant. In support of this application, the company conducted nonclinical and clinical studies to assess the abuse potential of CBD.

Epidiolex must be dispensed with a patient Medication Guide that describes important information about the drug’s uses and risks. As is true for all drugs that treat epilepsy, the most serious risks include thoughts about suicide, attempts to commit suicide, feelings of agitation, new or worsening depression, aggression and panic attacks. Epidiolex also caused liver injury, generally mild, but raising the possibility of rare, but more severe injury. More severe liver injury can cause nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, fatigue, anorexia, jaundice and/or dark urine.

The FDA prepares and transmits, through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, a medical and scientific analysis of substances subject to scheduling, like CBD, and provides recommendations to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) regarding controls under the CSA. DEA is required to make a scheduling determination.

Diary of a Changing World

By Steve Newman Nature Needs Half

A group of 47 scientists is proposing that humankind set aside half of the planet in various kinds of reserves to protect Earth’s dwindling biodiversity. The Half Earth, or Nature Needs Half, goal proposes a global agreement similar to the Paris climate accord. A new report by the group says that businesses should join governments to increase the funding to protect Earth’s animal and plant species from the current $4-$10 billion annually to $100 billion per year. “Corporations depend on the health of our ecosystems and are therefore at risk of losing the very foundations upon which their businesses rely,” explained co-author Thomas Dean of Colorado State University.

Earthquakes

Greater New Delhi was jolted by a moderate tremor that sent people rushing into the streets. • Earth movements were also felt in the northern Philippines, southeastern England, western Mexico and central Nebraska.

Deforestation

Forests covering an area roughly the size of the Philippines were cut down or burned to make way for farms from the Amazon Basin to the heart of Africa during 2017, according to an independent forest-monitoring organization.

Global Forest Watch said tropical forests were felled at a rate equivalent to 40 football fields per minute last year. The greatest tree losses occurred in Brazil, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Indonesia, Madagascar and Malaysia.

Zambia says hippos are susceptible to anthrax infection and can pass it on to humans who eat infected meat. But the animal rights charity Born Free says authorities have failed to provide enough evidence of hippo overpopulation to justify the cull.

Organic Sales Continue to Increase By Focus Omaha American consumers in 2017 filled more of their grocery carts with organic, buying everything from organic produce and organic ice cream to organic fresh juices and organic dried beans, according to the Organic Trade Association’s 2018 Organic Industry Survey. Organic sales in the U.S. totaled a new record of $49.4 billion in 2017, up 6.4 percent from the previous year and reflecting new sales of nearly $3.5 billion. The organic food market hit $45.2 billion in sales, also breaking through to a new record for an increase of 6.4 percent. Sales of organic nonfood products rose by 7.4 percent to $4.2 billion, setting another new benchmark. The growth rate for organic food sales was below 2016’s 9 percent pace and was impacted by markedly slow growth in the big organic dairy and egg category. However, it was well above that of the overall food market, which nudged up 1.1 percent. Organic continued to increase its penetration into the total food market, and now

accounts for 5.5 percent of the food sold in retail channels in the U.S. “Organic has arrived. And everyone is paying attention,” said Laura Batcha, CEO and Executive Director of the Organic Trade Associaion. “Our survey shows there are now certified organic products in the marketplace representing all stages of the life cycle of a product or a company—from industry veterans to start-ups that are pioneering leading edge innovation and benefits and getting shelf space for the first time. Consumers love organic, and now we’re able to choose organic in practically every aisle in the store.” This year marks the 20th year of the Organic Trade Association’s survey. The survey, widely regarded as the most comprehensive look at the retail organic sector in America, first measured organic sales in 1997. That year, organic food sales were pegged at $3.4 billion; 2017’s sales of over $45 billion reflect a growth of nearly 15 times. In the last decade alone, the U.S. organic market has more than doubled in size. The organic sector has thrived since the advent of a strict, comprehensive federal standard for organic and the introduction of the organic seal in the marketplace. In 1990 when the Organic Foods Production Act was signed into law authorizing the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National

Organic Program, U.S. organic sales totaled just $1 billion. By 2002 when the final federal organic standards were implemented and the USDA Organic seal was introduced, organic sales had climbed to $8.6 billion. Fast forward to the present, and you see over 24,000 certified organic operations nationwide serving an almost $50 billion market, whose annual growth rate regularly outpaces that of the total food market. While the growth in organic sales slowed in 2017, some slowdown in what had been an on-fire growth pace was expected. The organic market is maturing and coming of age. New channel and product expansions are becoming more incremental rather than revolutionary. Organic’s market performance revealed the maturity

or different stages of development of each category in organic food, plateauing in some areas and shifting in others to reflect new trends and challenges. “The organic food market will see a steadier pace of growth as it matures, but it will continue to surpass the growth rate of the broader food market,” noted Batcha. “Demand for organic is flourishing as consumers seek out nutritious and clean food that is good for their health and for the environment. That demand is driving innovation, and there are now so many organic options that we can all eat organic for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and everything in between.” Until next week, “Stay Healthy Omaha!”

Dr. Sebastian Lane– Deep Blues Roots Growing in Omaha By Andy Roberts For fans of the blues, Sebastian Lane’s answer to my first question could not have been better. Where are you from? “I was born in Chicago,” Lane offered. But, for those who remember the Butterfield Blues Band, it was not in 19-and-41. To be more precise, he is Dr. Sebastian Lane, a student in surgery at UNMC. So, he may not end up having a lengthy blues career but he is making some smoking hot music now. And, boy, does he have some roots. His grandfather was Blues Hall of Fame legend, Jimmy Rogers, who played with Muddy Waters before starting his own career on the legendary Chess Records label. His father, Jimmy D. Lane, is another Blues Hall of Fame artist who played with Eric Clapton, Mick Jagger, B.B. King, Taj Mahal, Van Morrison, Robert Plant, and Jimmy Page among others. Lane left Chicago when he was 10 after his father landed a deal with a recording studio to check on ASCAP contracts. They later moved to Vancouver and he finished high school in the Pacific Northwest. Lane has performed with numerous other artists during his career, including Omaha’s BMG-signed Jocelyn, but is now concentrating on his own music. He sings and plays guitar in the Sebastian Lane Band which includes Blues Ed alums Ben Curran on lead and rhythm guitar, Dain Armbrust on bass, and drummer Kevin Fries. Given his proximity to the source,

Lane had his own Blues Ed experience growing up and was destined to work within the genre. “I experiment in a bunch of different genres,” he said. That includes modern hip-hop and other things. But, “For our album . . . it’s mostly a blues-rock album.” Walking by Myself, was released July 4 on all digital platforms with a hard copy release to follow. The eight-song EP’s title is taken from one of his grandfather’s best-known songs. Lane and band worked with Rick Carson on the recording at Omaha’s Maple Leaf Studios. “He’s worked with a bunch of different artists,” including Terrace Martin, Lane pointed out. “He was just happy to have us come record with him.” The release is all original material with the exception of “Catfish Blues” which is a Robert Petway composition that was recorded by Jimmy Rogers with Muddy Waters. Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, a rising 19-year-old musical ace, plays guitar on the track and Eric Gales is on the song “Jezebel.” The blues is one of the foundations of modern pop music, but it’s even more basic for Lane. “It’s just a part of who I am growing up . . . it’s who I am,” he stated. “It’s evolved over time.” That evolution began when he started playing music at the age of three. At first he played at home with his father, then, when many young players are just starting, he became more serious about his art in middle school. “I’m trying to keep it going . . . To me it’s just comfort,” he offered. For writing inspiration Lane looks to life experiences: “Past relationships and that kind of stuff.”

Focus | July 11 - July 17 | Volume 2 Issue 28

The “stuff that’s going on in pop culture these days” also provides fodder. Lately he’s been looking to play more often, including a summer festival in Grand Island and a gig before Jimmy Vaughan at Chrome Lounge on July 19. But, there is that other career option where his skills as a surgeon are desperately needed. Again, that was an interest that came to him though his family. “My grandpa,” Lane recalled. “He died from cancer, so that got me interested in medicine.” That prompted him to focus more on school and he did his undergraduate work at Hastings College. With his final year of medical school coming up, he acknowledged that needs to be his priority.

“It’s definitely some interesting choices I’ll have to make,” he offered. “I guess we’ll see what happens.” Lane suggested he may try to tailor his medical career in a manner that would allow him to continue playing music. “I guess we’ll see what happens,” he said. “That’s not the easiest thing to do.” For more information on Sebastian Lane: Website: www.sebastianlaneband.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ SebastianLaneMusic/ Instagram Page: https://www.instagram.com/sebastianlanemusic/ Link to all platforms: https://song.link/ album/us/i/1399014445

Front Porch Blues– Getting Down to the “Bone” for Some Raw Sounds

Sloan said the band plays relatively obscure covers because no one would know their original material – they all play in multiple projects. “What we do is live off the graces of long-dead bluesmen,” Sloan chuckled. “We throw in some Traffic . . . we do Spencer Davis,” Shaw offered.

Shaw also is reviving Boneyard Pickers – a fifties swing project that will include some rockabilly. “I just try to keep it interesting,” Shaw said. “Nobody wants to do the same old thing all the time.” Readers can learn more about Shaw’s multiple projects on his Mudfish Puddin’ Kevin “Bone” Shaw Facebook page. Despite the busy schedule, he’s not planning to drop Front Porch Blues anytime soon, however.

“It just keeps rollin’,” Shaw shrugged. “It’s just a sort of for relief type thing.” So, don’t look for them on a porch, but this Friday you can find the band at the B Bar on Leavenworth Street. Later this month shows are booked for Havana Garage and Doe’s in Fremont.
