Thanks to rdeal1999, you can watch TAB’s stand-out performances from last night below![cover photo via @blissfulnotions] Trey Anastasio came into Port Chester, NY, hot last night, opening up an extensive spring tour in support of his most recent album Paper Wheels with the first of two nights at the Capitol Theatre. The night immediately took off with a monstrous “Sand,” and Trey and his compadres showed no sign off slowing down, with the illustrious Capitol Theatre bouncing around the room from start to finish. Trey’s ensemble this time around includes founding Trey Anastasio Band members Tony Markellis and Russ Lawton, Ray Paczkowski, seasoned-percussionist Cyro Baptista, and one of the most powerful horn sections in the game with Jennifer Hartswick, Natalie Cressman, and James Casey.After the scorching “Sand” opener, Trey continued to bring on TAB staples “Mozambique” and “Cayman Review” preceding the debut of “This Crazy World I Know,” written by Trey and lyricist companion Tom Marshall. Soon after, Trey decided to throw another enormous curveball, debuting an impressive and tasty cover of Portugal the Man’s “Feel it Still” before ending the set with “Valentine,” Bob Marley’s “Soul Rebel,” and an impressive and extended “Gotta Jibboo”.With a buzzing crowd and an even more fired-up band, set two took off with TAB classic “Curlews Call.” What happened next was one of the most impressive TAB sets that’s gone down in recent years; flowing straight into “Night Speaks to a Woman,” the set effortlessly navigated through TAB favorites including “Alaska,” “Heavy Things,” “Simple Twist Up Dave,” and ended the set with a monstrous cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Dazed and Confused.” Jennifer Hartswick absolutely crushed on lead vocals, and the crowd was left with jaws on the floor. Continuing the trend of delightful surprises, Trey and the gang came out for encore, debuting an a capella rendition of the Irish traditional tune “The Parting Glass” followed by “Push on til the Day” to end a TAB show that will be impossible for any one of the 1,800 phans lucky enough to share in the groove.last_img read more

first_imgAt the renowned Harvard Faculty Club the latest guest amenity comes in the form of an elegant clear glass bottle. For more than a month, Faculty Club employees have been filling those glass bottles with filtered carbonated or still water from new machines that eliminate the use of over 15,000 plastic and glass bottles annually. The initiative is just one more way the Club’s staff are putting Harvard’s sustainability commitment into action.Standing next to one of the new machines, which sports spouts for either carbonated or still water, Guest Services Manager Karen Keane says customers are responding extremely well to the new water serving option used in the dining rooms, and function rooms. Several guests have even asked if they can buy the re-usable glass serving bottles.The idea originated with the Faculty Club’s General Manager, Syed Shahidullah, who said he and his employees are always looking for new ways to improve their sustainability efforts. Customers respond well to green initiatives and appreciate the Club is exploring opportunities to reduce its environmental impact. Syed approached the Harvard Office for Sustainability (OFS) for advice and worked with OFS’ Sustainability Engagement Manager Elaine Strunk to research and evaluate potential vendors. They ultimately chose a product that delivered the quality customers expected, was cost-effective and reduced the Club’s environmental footprint by cutting emissions from the delivery of bottled water and eliminating waste from the thousands of single-use plastic and glass bottles previously used.last_img read more

first_imgStudents can grab free handouts and tips on energy awareness as they move through South Quad on the way to class Monday as part of Energy Week 2010. Energy Center student advisory board chair Jonathan Conway said the schedule for Energy Week will include lectures, movie screenings and tours of different campus buildings. “Honestly, the goal is just to make students aware about energy issues and sustainability on campus,” Conway said. “We try to have different events for different groups of students.” Barbara Villarosa, programs and research specialist at the University Energy Center, said the week of student-sponsored energy awareness will educate students on energy challenges. “What we like to do is plan a variety of events that will be attractive to all students,” Villarosa said. “Some students much prefer learning by lectures but others would rather enjoy a film.” The diverse range of events will center on a common theme of education. “We have kept the same mission [for Energy Week] each year,” Villarosa said. “We want to increase awareness across campus to provide educational opportunities to learn about current energy issues and topics that are facing our nation today.” Energy Week 2010 began Friday on Irish Green with “Green is Gold” T-shirt sales and games to create awareness, Villarosa said. The Energy Expo on Saturday drew many science and engineering students despite the campus festivities for the football game day. Energy companies and organizations including General Electric (GE), Midwest ISO, Indiana Department of Environmental Management, Notre Dame’s Office of Sustainability and student environmental groups will display their latest innovations on the quad Monday, according to the Energy Center website. “The quad display is probably the most well attended because it is the most visible,” Villarosa said. “Last year over a thousand students stopped and talked to the different people outside.” Students can learn about making a different in the energy field after graduation during the energy career lecture Tuesday with a representative from GE, Conway said. “The career lecture has always drawn quite a bit of interest,” Villarosa said. “The upperclassmen are interested to know what it takes to get out there in the energy field in their careers.” Wednesday night will feature a lecture titled “The Future of Alternative Energy,” showcasing Notre Dame professors and their research conducted on campus, Villarosa said. “I think the lecture on Wednesday will be the most exciting event,” Conway said. “Notre Dame professors will be speaking about the future of energy.” Five professors from the College of Engineering and the College of Science will speak during the lecture on possible forms of alternative energy and their research here at Notre Dame. “We are providing opportunities to learn about energy awareness and highlighting the current energy research going on here at Notre Dame that is usually conducted behind-the-scenes,” Villarosa said. “Not everyone is aware of the outstanding developments and innovations going on in this field.” The Energy Center will also screen “The 11th Hour” and “No Impact Man: The Documentary” during the week and sponsor tours of the campus power plant and Geddes Hall. “There are important problems in the energy field that we need to work to find solutions for,” Conway said. “There are little things we can do every day in our dorm rooms and bigger things we can do as we move into the real world.” The week will close with Mass at 5 p.m. on Thursday in Holy Cross Chapel in Stinson-Remick Hall and a trivia night to test energy knowledge at Legend’s on Thursday evening, Conway said. A full schedule of events is available online at the Notre Dame Energy Center’s website. “This is a student-sponsored event,” Villarosa said. “It is planned and organized and really executed by the Notre Dame Energy Center student advisory board with the support and help of all the students in GreeND.”last_img read more

first_imgYou may not find research in fruit and vegetable diseases to be intriguing, but if you no longer had high-quality fresh food on your plate, you might change your mind. If federal earmark funding is taken off the table for America’s land-grant universities, the safety of our abundant food supply will suffer.For example, phytophothora is a devastating disease for fruits and vegetables grown in the humid regions of the U.S., including Georgia. Nationally, the disease costs farmers $182 million. It costs Georgia farmers $38 million annually. Tomatoes or bell peppers can be healthy one day. The next day, the entire field could be wiped out. Infected fields often are destroyed to stop the disease’s spread. Solutions to this disease are complex, yet hardly exciting, nor thrilling or sexy. Having resources to find the solutions to the problems that plague our nation’s farmers is paramount to our ability to feed, clothe and house our citizens. Often it’s how farmers grow crops that determines the prevalence of the problem. Research into best practices is vital to their success. The scientific community isn’t going to fund studies of solutions to plant diseases like phytophothora. The scientific process mainly focuses on and funds studies that involve high-minded science, usually using molecular tools that investigate fundamental theory and process. Studying the best time of the season to plant bell peppers in south Georgia, while perhaps holding the solution to phytophothora, is never going to win a Nobel Prize. Some might also ask why farmers don’t fund this research directly, much like the Boeing Corporation funds research into the development of a new generation of aircraft. Farming is a diverse industry where no single farmer has the ability to directly support needed research. Some might also ask why multinational pesticide and chemical companies don’t support this research. Since the solution likely doesn’t involve a chemical which can be sold for profit, there is no incentive to develop strategies that don’t make money. Federal earmarks remain the only process for supporting this vital research. Without it, these projects fall between the cracks of the types of studies typically supported by the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Department of Agriculture National Research Initiative and the profit-driven research that pesticide companies might support. The very essence and value of public land-grant university research is that it is free from industrial, corporate, profit-motive influence. It is the closest thing we have to objective research for the good of the nation. Without federal funds, public university research may not have found the solution to the boll weevil, ways to protect and preserve our land and water or effective systems to prevent devastating foreign animal diseases from wiping out our food supply. Or we may have found the solutions, but the information would not be readily available for all to see, use and benefit from.There have been misguided projects amid the system of federal earmarks. There likely will be again. But research projects funded by the USDA support important issues that wouldn’t get the attention of other funding sources, yet are vital to ensuring we all have a safe, abundant and high-quality food supply. University of Georgia scientists are studying ways to fight phytophothora in fruits and vegetables right now. Their work is being funded by federal earmarks.Without this support, no one else would be looking for solutions to this problem. Research funded by federal earmarks may be the only hope we have to continue growing important Georgia food crops.last_img read more

first_imgRelatedPosts EPL: Son fires four past Southampton Tottenham sign £25m Sergio Reguilon Tottenham re-signs Bale on loan Tottenham Hotspur are not pursuing Zlatan Ibrahimovic as a potential signing because the Premier League club have a top striker in Harry Kane, manager Jose Mourinho said on Monday. Ibrahimovic spent one-and-a-half seasons with Manchester United under Mourinho, where he scored 29 goals and helped the club win the League Cup and Europa League, before joining Los Angeles Galaxy. The 38-year-old Swede, who also played under Mourinho at Inter Milan, is a free agent after leaving the MLS side this month. “It doesn’t make any sense for a striker of Zlatan’s dimension to come to a club where we have Harry Kane. You are right about the connection (to Ibrahimovic). I would say we have one of the top strikers in England,” Mourinho told reporters ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League group game against Olympiakos. Spurs reached the Champions League final under Mauricio Pochettino last season but Mourinho, who replaced the Argentine manager last week, is not looking that far ahead. “With these boys I will never be afraid of any Champions League match. He said: “We need to qualify. It’s only when my teams arrive in the quarter-finals that I start thinking that we have a chance. In this moment we are far from it. “Every Champions League campaign there are details around your success or failure. “How many times I lost on penalties or in the last minute. Details make the difference. “As for Spurs last season, they had little details for them. VAR was with them (against Manchester City). “The Lucas (Moura) goal in Amsterdam (against Ajax). To arrive in the final is an achievement but not history.” The Portuguese also said that Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen, whose contract runs out this season, was committed to the club. “I’ve spoken with him..The important thing is that he’s committed with us so let’s not talk about his future. My decisions about starting him or not starting, selecting or not selecting, will be based on a perspective of a future. I cannot hide that,” Mourinho said. Spurs, who are second in Group B behind Bayern Munich, can secure qualification for the last 16 with victory over the winless Greek side.

first_imgRelatedPosts Derby County want Jordon Ibe Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ EPL: Crystal Palace stun sloppy Man U On loan Manchester United striker, Odion Ighalo, has showered praises on Wayne Rooney ahead of tonight’s FA Cup tie with Derby County. The Nigerian believes Red Devils all-time leading goalscorer, who joined the Championship side in January, has boosted the Rams with his experience and fighting qualities. And Ighalo has warned the Reds that Philip Cocu’s outfit will go into tonight’s game with a renewed sense of belief, thanks, in part, to Rooney’s exemplary record in front of goal. “Wayne Rooney is always an idol, like many players at United,” Ighalo said in an interview at Old Trafford earlier this week. “He’s a good guy. He is a fighter on the pitch, he fights until the end, from the start until the finish. He’s somebody I’ve seen that never gives up in the game, and he’s a good goalscorer. “A little chance, a little space, he’s going to score. He can shoot from outside, he can score in the box, he can score from anywhere. “He’s a great player. Good techniques, he has a good shot, good runs and, when Derby County have Wayne Rooney in their team, it gives them more confidence because he has done a lot in football and in England.” Ighalo could make his first appearance for the Reds in the FA Cup, although the Nigerian does have history in the famous old tournament. The centre-forward played for Watford in their 2-1 semi-final loss to Crystal Palace in 2016, the year we last won the competition. Despite that defeat denying him his dream of coming up against Louis van Gaal’s side in the showpiece event, he has good memories of stepping out at Wembley Stadium and wants to repeat the feat later in the season. “That was my first time playing in Wembley, it was a great experience,” Odion continues. “United got to the final that year, I remember because I was hoping we would win against Crystal Palace so we could play against Man United in the final. “That dream did not come to pass but it’s a great experience, you know. Playing in Wembley, not every player has the opportunity to play in Wembley in their career. You have to play in a cup game, a cup final or play for the national team to play there. “I had the opportunity to play for Watford there in the semi-final, so it was a great experience and I’m looking forward, hopefully, to be playing there again.” United and Ighalo are, of course, hunting for a record-equalling 13th cup triumph. Arsenal are currently the side with the most overall successes in the competition, and Ighalo recalled our famous battles with the Gunners – the 1999 and 2004 semi-finals, as well as the disappointing 2005 final defeat – fondly. “I watched Man United a lot, their rivalry with Arsenal for the FA Cup. “So it’s a great thing watching it and now playing in the FA Cup, which I did with Watford but now, hopefully, I want to try to go far and win it, if possible for me, to crown my success here with the team.”Tags: Derby CountyManchester UnitedOdion IghaloWayne Rooneylast_img read more

first_imgMULTI-MILLION dollar Big Bash naming rights sponsor KFC has turned up the heat on Cricket Australia (CA) to immediately resolve the pay crisis railroading the game.KFC pours an estimated $3.5-$4 million into the game each year as one of CA’s top three corporate partners and its concerned call for administrators on both sides of the fence to realise the ugly war is killing the sport reflects growing anxiety and frustration among cricket’s leading sponsors.Leading corporate partners have been left badly exposed by cricket’s lapsed pay agreement, as CA no longer control the players’ image rights and are therefore unable to provide the protection against ambush marketing that giants like Qantas, Commonwealth Bank and Optus have forked out millions for.The Daily Telegraph spoke to several of the sport’s corporate partners yesterday, and while some continued to play down the drama, others were outright damning of CA’s complete loss of control, with more than 230 players out of contract and no longer available to them.CA can ill-afford the crisis scenario of having major sponsors ask for their money back or walk away from unfulfilled deals.KFC has partnered with CA since 2003 and as well has backed the world-beating BBL and has also been naming rights sponsor for the Australian Twenty20 side.The fast food icons stopped short of tipping its famous bucket on those in charge, but its pointed assessment that the ever-escalating situation has gone too far sends a clear enough message in itself.“The dispute between Cricket Australia and the Australian Cricketers’ Association is unfortunate and one we hope will be resolved amicably as soon as possible for the benefit of the game,” a KFC spokesperson told The Daily Telegraph.Mitchell Starc’s deal with Audi has left some sponsors feeling edgy, and it’s understood other leading stars are also set to announce similar car dealership arrangements in the near future.Cricket Australia have indicated they aren’t concerned by Starc’s venture, given other leading players already have similar existing CA-approved arrangements with Toyota rivals.Toyota issued a statement to say “we are confident Cricket Australia and the players (ACA) are working together to reach a mutual agreement, as soon as they possibly can”, sentiments also reflected by Optus.The Commonwealth Bank declined to comment when approached.Australian Cricketers Association general manager Tim Cruickshank has been in regular contact with sponsors concerned about where they stand with no MOU in place.last_img read more

first_imgSitting at the podium after Syracuse’s 15-9 victory over Hobart were the game’s biggest factors.Attacks Randy Staats and Kevin Rice — who combined for nine goals — and midfielder Billy Ward, who scored a crucial goal midway through the fourth quarter that helped push the Orange to a comeback win.But between Ward and Rice was Jordan Evans, who hadn’t been at a postgame press conference yet this season but cracked SU head coach John Desko’s rotation Saturday.In No. 4 Syracuse’s (9-3, 2-3 Atlantic Coast) 15-9 win over Hobart (4-8, 3-2 Northeast) at Boswell Field, the highly recruited freshman played the most he has all season. He was mainly on the field as a short-stick midfielder on the defensive end in his increased minutes, a position he’s somewhat new to but has worked on in practice in recent weeks.Although Evans said he thought he was out of position a couple times, he credited Drew Jenkins and Tom Grimm for helping him in practice to learn the defensive communication.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“It’s definitely a lot different than offense,” Evans said.“It’s better than sitting next to me,” Desko interjected.“We thought, we have such a quality player here, let’s get him in here somehow,” Desko went on to say. “He’s smart and he’s good in packages and he’s good at picking things up quickly.”And even as he worked to catch onto a different spot, Evans’ offensive background was beneficial. With the game tied 1-1, the Jamesville-DeWitt (N.Y.) High School product received an outlet pass from Matt Harris. He then sprinted down the field and sent a lead pass to Rice, and two passes later the ball was on the stick of Dylan Donahue before flying past Hobart goalie Jackson Brown and into the back of the net.“We haven’t been getting a ton of those (fast-break goals),” Desko said.Evans also saw some time at his natural attack position, like when he was on the field for a Nicky Galasso goal that gave the Orange a 12-8 lead late in the fourth.“It’s good to be out on the field,” Evans said. “At this point, I don’t care where I’m at. As long as I’m out there helping, I think I can definitely help in transition, so wherever I can help.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on April 19, 2014 at 10:42 pm Contact Josh: [email protected]last_img read more
