R.I.P Van Cliburn
Van Cliburn, the internationally celebrated pianist whose triumph at a 1958 Moscow competition helped thaw the Cold War and launched a spectacular career that made him the rare classical musician to enjoy rock-star status, has died. He was 78.

Cliburn died early Wednesday at his Fort Worth home surrounded by loved ones following a battle with bone cancer, said his publicist and longtime friend Mary Lou Falcone.

Cliburn made what would be his last public appearance in September at the 50th anniversary of the prestigious piano competition named for him. Speaking to the audience in Fort Worth, he saluted the many past contestants, the orchestra and the city.

"Never forget: I love you all from the bottom of my heart, forever," he said to a roaring standing ovation.

Sequestration and Its Possible Impacts on Construction, a report that AGC updated on February 7, estimates that “the cuts to federal construction accounts could exceed $4 billion….The Highway Trust Fund, Airport Improvement Program, Department of Veterans Affairs accounts, and General Services Administration accounts are exempt from the sequestration process scheduled to occur on March 1, 2013. However, those construction accounts could face cuts in later fiscal years to help ensure that federal spending does not exceed the [Budget Control Act]-enacted budget caps. [Construction accounts for building military facilities]could see over $1.5 billion in cuts…U.S. embassies abroad could feel the impact of about a $90 million cut—a nearly 12% reduction compared to [fiscal year] 2012 funding levels—to embassy security, construction and maintenance funding.” A $135 million reduction in drinking water and wastewater facilities and infrastructure investment would be triggered.
