Gov’t Mule Welcomes Jim James For “Us And Them” At Christmas Jam ‘Dark Side Of The Mule’ Set [Video/Full Audio]

Gov’t Mule Welcomes Jim James For “Us And Them” At Christmas Jam ‘Dark Side Of The Mule’ Set [Video/Full Audio]

first_imgWarren Haynes and Gov’t Mule are back in Asheville, North Carolina this weekend for the 30th edition of the prolific guitarist’s annual star-studded Christmas Jam. This year’s weekend event got moving with a pre-jam concert at the Orange Peel on Thursday night, which included notable appearances from Jimmy Vivino to Marco Benevento. Friday evening saw Haynes and other scheduled performers including Grace Potter, Jamey Johnson, Benevento, and Mike Gordon all move over to the larger U.S. Cellular Center to begin the main event. It was there on Friday where Gov’t Mule once again transformed into their Pink Floyd-themed Dark Side of the Mule, which sw Warren and his bandmates spend the entire set covering the famous psychedelic rock pioneers.The show began with “Pigs On The Wing Pt. I” from Pink Floyd’s 1977 Animals LP, which included a wonderfully hazy ending solo from Haynes. From there, they transitioned into a pair of tunes from 1975’s Wish You Were Here with “Shine On You Crazy Diamond Part I” and “Have A Cigar”. Next, they moved into the sound effects-driven “Speak To Me” from their psychedelic masterpiece The Dark Side of the Moon, which of course went right into the album’s dreamy “Breathe (In The Air)”, “On The Run”, “Time”, “The Great Gig in the Sky”, and “Money”. From there, the band moved into climactic Dark Side ballad “Us And Them”, which saw them welcome My Morning Jacket‘s Jim James to the stage to help out on vocal duties.Dark Side of the Mule with Jim James – “Us And Them” – 12/7/2018[Video: Gregory Marcus]The night continued with “Any Colour You Like” before the band took a break from Dark Side and transitioned into an eerily fun rendition of “Welcome To The Machine”. The latter half of the set also included “One Of These Days” and “Fearless” as well as part one of “Echoes” from 1971’s Meddle, before closing out with “Comfortably Numb”. The band would finally return to the stage for a one-song encore of “Wish You Were Here”.

Daily Dirt: Outdoor News for May 1, 2013

Photo by Steven McBride.Your outdoor news bulletin for May 1, the day James Whittaker became the first American to summit Everest:Speaking of Everest…That fight that broke out between a group of climbers and a group of Sherpas appears to be more insidious than first reported. Initial word from the Everest conflict predictably placed most of the blame on the Sherpas, but as more eyewitness accounts began to roll in it seems the western climbers should shoulder at least some, if not all, of the blame for what happened. Of course in the high altitude, in a stressful, dangerous situation with both a language and culture barrier to bridge – not to mention the basic highs and lows of mountaineering – anything can and will happen.A full report can be found on the Adventure-Journal.Local Paddlers Earn Spots on U.S. TeamTaking full advantage of their home turf of the Nantahala River, three western North Carolina paddlers earned spots on the U.S. National Freestyle Kayak Team during the Team Trials held over the past weekend in Bryson City. Brad McMillan, of Bryson City conveniently, former Asheville resident Adriene Levknecht, and 16-year-old Rowan Stuart of Stecoah all punched their ticket to this fall’s Worlds at the same venue. McMillan took third in the OC-1 class, Levknecht finished second to Haley Mills in the K1W class, and Stuart also took second in the K1W Junior class. Despite the weather – a torrential downpour – the action was hot at the trials as boaters from around the country were trying to earn their spot on the U.S. team.Full results can be viewed here (PDF).Colonial CannibalismFile this one under “Ick.” Anthropologists claim to have found the first evidence of cannibalism at the Jamestown colony during the epic winter of 1609-10. They found the skeleton of a girl in a cellar with evenly spaced knife or clever markings on her bones, indicating that there was no struggle when she was being cut. The take-away is that she was apparently deceased when being portioned out. There are many firsthand accounts of cannibalism during this period of history in Jamestown, but this is the first evidence that it actually happened.The Washington Post has the (gross) story.last_img read more

Inner-city unit sold for unbelievable five-digit sum

first_imgThe property sold for a bargain five-digit sum in Kangaroo Point, which is across the Story Bridge from the Brisbane CBD.IN AN unbelievable stroke of good luck for a Brisbane buyer, an inner-city property has sold for just five digits five minutes from the CBD.Do not adjust your screen: The single-bed, single-bath studio in Kangaroo Point sold for an unheard-of $98,500 last month after the overseas-based seller decided he wanted it sold as soon as possible.Harcourts Solutions agent Sameer Ellagta said the property landed three solid offers almost immediately after the owner dropped the pricetag for 703/188 Shafston Avenue, Kangaroo Point. Not a bad bathroom for a studio flat. Mr Ellagta said studio apartments in the complex normally fetched around over $20-30,000 more in the current climate.“Normally in that complex the price $120,000 to $130,000 is usual, but of course that depends on the unit, the circumstances of the seller and the price they are willing to let it go for.” The body corporate fees of around $2,780 a year include electricity and high speed internet.“Shafston College is integrated in the building on levels 1 to 3 as well as their main campus directly next door,” according to the listing, with the studio resident also having access to the recreational lounge, well-equipped indoor and outdoor gym and on-site laundry, cafe and office services.As if to demonstrate just how lucky the buyer was to nab that deal, a similar apartment in the building sold for $135,000 just 10 days later.

Breakfast linked to ‘healthy heart’

Breakfast linked to ‘healthy heart’

first_img Tweet Share HealthLifestyle Breakfast linked to ‘healthy heart’ by: – July 23, 2013 Sharing is caring! Sharecenter_img 16 Views   no discussions Share Could a bowl of cereal help your heart?People should eat breakfast to keep their hearts in good condition, according to researchers in the US.Their study of 27,000 men, in the journal Circulation, showed those skipping breakfast were at a greater risk of heart problems.The team at the Harvard School of Public Health said missing the meal put an “extra strain” on the body.The British Heart Foundation said breakfast helped people resist sugary snacks before lunch.The men, aged 45-82, were studied for 16 years. During that time there were more than 1,500 heart attacks or cases of fatal heart failure. However, people who skipped breakfast were 27% more likely to have heart problems than those who started the day with a meal. The researchers adjusted for other lifestyle risk factors such as smoking and exercise.Researcher, Dr Leah Cahill told the BBC: “The take-home message is eat in the morning when you wake up, preferably within an hour.“The results show that something is better than nothing, but it’s always better to have something healthy and balanced.”She said the timing of the meal seemed to be key and waiting until lunch rather than “breaking fast” may be straining the body over time. She said this could be increasing the risk of high blood pressure, obesity and diabetes which could in turn damage the heart.“Don’t skip breakfast,” Dr Cahill concluded.Victoria Taylor, a dietitian with the British Heart Foundation, said: “These researchers only looked at men aged over 45, so we would need to see further research to confirm that breakfast has the same impact on the heart health of other groups of people.“What we do know is that a healthy and filling breakfast can make that mid-morning biscuit less tempting, as well as giving you another opportunity to widen the variety of foods in your diet.“Wholegrain toast, or cereals like porridge with low fat milk are a good way to start the day. Try a sliced banana or dried fruit on top and you’ll be on your way to five-a-day before you’ve even left the house.”BBC Newslast_img read more

VENDORS’ WISH: SIDEWALK RETURN

VENDORS’ WISH: SIDEWALK RETURN

first_imgILOILO City – Vendors wish the citygovernment would allow them to return to the sidewalks this holiday season evenfor just a few days. To this Mayor Jerry Treñas said, “I don’t know how it canbe done.” The vendors hope the city government wouldmake a favorable decision soon so they could set up their sidewalk kiosks onDec. 14 or 15 ahead of the Dec. 16 start of the nine-day traditional misa de gallo or early morning massleading to Christmas Day (Dec. 25). Dichupa said they would respectwhatever decision the city government would come up. “Kondiri lang asahan mo, ang sa front lang gid guro ang ayo-ayo benta. Pero sangsa likod pigado,” said Dichupa. PSTMO led the road and sidewalkclearing operations that displaced the vendors. Conlu, however, rejected thisexplanation, pointing out that buyers already knew where to look for vendors. Cacho also promised to further improvethe area to ensure the comfort of the vendors and customers. According to the mayor, the directorof the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) in this city showedhim a new memorandum stating that road and sidewalk clearing operations shouldextend to the barangays and not just in the downtown area. According to Dichupa, their return tothe sidewalks even for a limited number of days only would be a big helpalready to boost their income this holiday season. After one year, according to the citygovernment’s Public Safety and Transportation Management Office (PSTMO) headJeck Conlu, the Cachos and vendors would discuss the rental rate. “It would be unfair to those who movedto the Cacho property if other vendors are allowed to return to the sidewalks,”said Conlu.  “Sa mga sidewalk vendors, sundon ta lang ang mga programa nga ginapa-implementsa aton.” The vendors were spotted on thesidewalks of Ledesma, JM Basa, Rizal, and Jalandoni streets. They told thePSTMO business was sluggish at the Cacho property. “Anhonmo na kay nagasandig man lang si mayor sang order sa babaw,” he said. The skills training is for foodprocessing, dressmaking, massage therapy, welding, masonry, and carpentry,among others./PNcenter_img The city government has been clearingroads and sidewalks of obstructions since July following President RodrigoDuterte’s order for local chief executives to reclaim public spaces being usedfor private ends. In an effort to ease the burden of thedislocated vendors, a member of the Cacho family, Marcelo Cacho who is theadministrative manager of Panay Electric Co., announced in October that the vendorswould be required to pay rent for a year. Business is sluggish at the2,700-square meter wide Cacho property, he lamented. “Para at least may dal-on man angamon mga miembro sa ila mga panimalay sa Christmas,” he said. Treñas said he would convey to theDILG the vendors’ wish but stressed, “I don’t know how it can be allowed underthe circumstances,” referring to the new memo that in fact expanded theroad-clearing drive. “We left them with a warning. If theyreturn to the sidewalks again we will seize everything they have,” said PSTMOchief Jeck Conlu. Last month, 13 vendors were arrestedfor returning to sidewalks. PSTMO personnel also confiscated their tables andchairs. Their merchandize, however, were spared. But they remain hopeful and would seekan audience with Treñas before the week is over. “Ginapangamuyoko lang nga hatagan kami ni Mayor sang gamay nga Consuelo,” said Dichupa. This has resulted to the relocation of245 downtown sidewalk vendors to the vacant lot owned by the Cacho family alongthe downtown street of JM Basa, said Niel Dichupa, president of the Federationof Sidewalk Vendors Association in Iloilo City. But there are anestimated 1,500 sidewalk vendors across the city. Treñas previously told the vendors toexplore other livelihood sources and avail themselves of livelihood and skillstraining offered by the city government’s Public Employment Service Office inpartnership with Technical Education and Skills Development Authority. “But I will confer with the DILG justthe same,” said Treñas.last_img read more

Toffees duo progressing well

Toffees duo progressing well

first_img The duo have both been included in the Toffees squad for the upcoming pre-season trip to Scotland, which features friendlies against Hearts on Sunday and Dundee next Tuesday. Martinez told the club’s website, www.everton.tv: “We have got some very exciting news with Bryan Oviedo and Leighton Baines joining the group for Scotland. “They are raring to go as you can imagine. They are two pristine professionals and they are a similar profile of player, so they have been helping each other with their work. They are full of energy and desperate to join the group.” New signing Gerard Deulofeu, who has joined the club on a permanent deal from Barcelona after a successful loan in 2013-14, is not travelling. Deulofeu suffered a hamstring injury against Arsenal in the Asia Trophy in Singapore but should be fit for the start of the season. Martinez said: “It’s not a real concern, it’s an injury that I don’t think will stop him starting the league campaign. “His physicality is that he is a sprinter and we need to make sure he is fully recovered before he is back on the pitch.” England left-back Baines and Costa Rican midfielder Oviedo missed the end of last season. Baines required ankle surgery after suffering a recurrence of an old problem in a game against Sunderland in May while Oviedo broke a metatarsal in training in April. Everton pair Leighton Baines and Bryan Oviedo are both making good progress in their recoveries from injury, manager Roberto Martinez has reported.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Cricket News I hope Raman isn’t criticised to bench Mithali Raj, says Ramesh Powar

first_imgMithali Raj scored 24 runs in the last encounter.New Zealand thrashed India 3-0 in T20 Internationals. Ramesh Powar backs WV Raman’s decision to bench Mithali.  highlights For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. “So I was thinking ahead. My vision was that if we had won that game, it would have taken the team places in the future. In two to five years, these girls would have developed into a great team. That was my thought process.” Powar went onto to back WV Raman and spoke about the vision. He believes that Raman applied the same logic as he did a few months back and is hopeful that his decision will not be criticised by the populous.”He’s doing the same thing. He’s thinking ahead. There’s a vision. Everyone has a vision. A coach has to think about how to take his team forward. When I took this decision, I got a lot of criticism for it. I hope WV (Raman) gets a fair deal, and people don’t get negative about it, and look at the bigger picture.”He’s a newly-appointed coach. He needs some time to think about how he wants to take the team forward. He has started his vision. There’s no option but to think ahead. It’s not about Mithali; it’s about forging a combination which you think is right. He must be planning to build a team for the next T20 World Cup,” Powar concluded. New Delhi: India’s decision to bench Mithali Raj in the first two games of three-match T20 International series against New Zealand made to the headlines and made one man feel vindicated – Ramesh Powar. The former Indian head coach faced a lot of criticism on social media after dropping Mithali from the playing eleven in semi-final encounter against England last year.But to everyone’s surprise the current head coach, WV Raman continued the thought which his counterpart did a few months back. On this, Ramesh Powar went on to show his disappointment.”I don’t know what exactly is happening, but he did what exactly I did. The coach must be having some vision about how to take this team forward. You can’t play forever. As a coach and captain, or the team management, you need to take a call about how to take the team forward,” he told TOI.Interestingly, Ramesh Powar’s decision was backed by the skipper and generated a fair bit of controversy. The former India cricketer said, “When I or the team management took that decision regarding Mithali, I wasn’t thinking about just the T20 World Cup. If the same team, which had beaten Australia in the league stage without the senior player, would have won the semifinal, and that team was almost under-25 in terms of age, it would have given them a huge amount of confidence.last_img read more
