Bulletdodge Records Releases Michael Greig and Gareth Whitehead’s Remixes of “It Goes” by Krist Noveselic’s Band Giants in the Trees

In 2017, Hall of Fame Inductee and former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic conjured a musical project. The product was Giants in the Trees, a Northwestern rock band made up of four harmonious components: Jillian Raye, Erik Friend, Ray Prestegard, and Novoselic himself. While the quartet’s ties to Seattle are as obvious as they are appealing, their sound doesn’t submit or surrender to grunge. In fact, the grungiest thing about Giants in the Trees is their audible darkness consistently teetering on sorrow. Turn Bauhaus into a folk band and let them play in the forest – that’s Giants in the Trees.

We train the machine with a training dataset; the data does not always have to be labeled one i.e. not with specified features. This is when the unsupervised ML model gets into the picture. They work in the unlabeled data. While the supervised works on labeled data, the unsupervised work on the unlabeled data.

Here’s What Achieving "Tree Equity" Could Mean for Houstonians

According to a post from Rice University’s Kinder Institute for Urban Research, which looked at a study from American Forests*, many of Houston’s wealthiest neighborhoods are home to more trees, more shade, and, thus, lower temps.

New Johnson Arboretum blooms with tree potential

All arboretums must start somewhere, but even a modest collection of saplings holds the promise of a future forest. “Somebody said to me recently, ‘It was so neat to see it in its beginning,’” Sue Lovering, chair of the Johnson tree board, said of the newly opened Johnson Arboretum. “Most people look at it and say, I can’t wait until it’s really grown up. Of course, in my mind, I already see it that way. I picture it 30 years from now and it looks totally different. But she was right. It’s neat to see how things start.”
