Signals of powerful ground transmitters at various places have been detected by satellites in near‐Earth space. The study on propagation mode, ducted or nonducted, has attracted much attentions for several decades. Based on the statistical results from Van Allen Probes (data from October 2012 to March 2017) and DEMETER satellite (from January 2006 to December 2007), we present the ground transmitter signals distributed clearly in ionosphere and magnetosphere. The observed propagation route in the meridian plane in the magnetosphere for each of various transmitters from the combination of DEMETER and Van Allen Probes data in nighttime is revealed for the first time. We use realistic ray tracing simulation and compare simulation results against Van Allen Probes and DEMETER observation. By comparison we demonstrate that the observed propagation route, with partial deviation from the field lines corresponding to ground stations, provides direct and clear statistical evidence that the nonducted propagation mode plays a main role, although with partial contribution from ducted propagation. The propagation characteristics of VLF transmitter signals in the magnetosphere are critical for quantitatively assessing their contribution to energetic electron loss in radiation belts.

Hailing from Atlanta, Georgia, Bells and Robes will lead you on a refreshing electronic journey through time and space, combining elements of live improvisation with synth-heavy sounds of the future. Fresh off the release of their experimental debut EPs, “One Should See Sound” Part 1 and Part 2, Bells and Robes offers us a more straight-forward interpretation of their sound while maintaining their veracity as avant-garde sound creators and technicians with their new track “Duality.” Blending atmospheric chill-wave and fast-paced bass lines, Bells and Robes aims to create a vibrant energy while concurrently soothing audiophiles into a fantasy-like state of reverie.Performing over self-produced “electro-soundscapes,” Luke Sipka plays keyboard behind the boards while Dean Spaniol plays drums and creates samples. With the help of up-and-coming rapper, Swain, the trio combines the vigor and brusque electronic sound of current R&B music with the ad-libbing of a live band in a way that leaves listeners feeling calm and contented. Watch the band’s first-ever music video for “Duality” below:“We are very proud of how “Duality” was realized into our first official music video as Bells and Robes. We’ve been building with a talented team of creatives in Atlanta including Swain and his collective, LNEM, Frank Murillo, who shot the video, and all the other people involved with this project. This will be the first of many to come!” the band tells us.Bells and Robes are an Atlanta-based electronica pair taking the music world by storm. The Bells and Robes name comes from a Zen Koan titled “Bells and Robes.” This parable tells readers that “to understand intimately one should see sound.” The duo combines the high energy and crisp electronic sound of a dance DJ with the unpredictable improvisation of a jam band set. With the addition of Swain’s silver-tongued, soulful rap-style, this track is an absorbing hit for the ages. Follow the band on their website.
It’s time now to sing out! Jonathan Larson’s Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning musical RENT will hit the road this fall for a 20th anniversary production. Based on the original direction by Tony nominee Michael Greif, Evan Ensign will restage the touring show. Casting and city stops will be announced at a later date.”For the past 20 years, RENT has touched the lives of audiences around the world from Broadway to regional productions to high school auditoriums,” said producer Stephen Gabriel in a statement. “We’re thrilled to introduce a new generation to this timeless story of love, friendship and community.”Written and composed by the late Larson, RENT is the story of friends and artists struggling to make a home in the East Village in the early 1990s. The show transferred from off-Broadway to the Nederlander Theatre where it opened on Broadway on April 29, 1996, winning both the Best Musical Tony Award and the Pulitzer Prize. The original Broadway production closed on September 7, 2008. The show features such iconic songs as “Seasons of Love,” “Light My Candle,” “I’ll Cover You,” “Goodbye Love” and more. View Comments
