Aaron Freeman on life after Ween and the intricacies of Billy Joel

By Sam Routhier
Since disbanding the legendary alt-rock duo Ween, Aaron Freeman (aka Gene Ween) is reinventing his career after leaving the band that defined him for almost three decades. The past few years have been transitional for Freeman, who has been sober since leaving Ween in 2012 after years of drug and alcohol abuse. Since then, he has released two albums: 2012’s Marvelous Clouds, an album of songs written by the late folk songwriter Rod McKuen, and 2014’s FREEMAN, his first release of original material since the disbanding of Ween.

The Record of a year

By Amanda Moutinho
Working from home has its advantages. For singer-songwriter, husband-wife duo The Weepies, a home studio allows for inspiration to strike at any time. “I know other people get up and go to work, like songwriters and other musicians who will schedule two weeks to go record,” says co-Weepie Steve Tannen. “That’s something we might explore at one point, but that doesn’t seem natural to us or instinctively a good thing to set up two weeks out of your lifetime to capture something.

The researchers predicted that earlier studies failed to consider other kinds of contributing factors such as extreme weather, water levels and animals. From 1969 to 2012, the university team measured plant productivity at a U.S. Forest Service meadow just outside Bozeman, Montana.

Under pressure

Documents reveal EPA consented to industry demands on study into fracking’s effect on drinking water

By Mollie Putzig
Fracking has no “widespread, systematic” impacts on drinking water, according to a draft of an Environmental Protection Agency study released June 4, but industry influence on the study invites skepticism. The study began in 2010 when Congress directed the EPA to investigate whether fracking poses a threat to drinking water.

It is summer and the sky is blue. In the early morning, light spills dappled leaf-shadows through pleached layers of branches and trunks.

I’ve been following the issue for some time, and last week the federal government and the EPA finalized a rule that would mend the loopholes in the Clean Water Act and help protect the streams and wetlands that fall into the gray area of the current form of the Act.

By Drew Johnson
The EPA recently proposed new regulations that would dramatically lower ozone emission standards. Under the new standards, as many as 100 state and national parks would fail the test.
