Widespread Panic Brings The Heat For Night Two In Chicago [Review/Gallery]

first_imgLoad remaining images The second night of Widespread Panic’s sold out, three night run at the Chicago Theatre continued exactly where they left off from Thursday night. Last night was an absolute party, with the band getting extra funky for all those that made it on the beautiful Chicago evening.What the first set didn’t have in segues it made up for in maximum rock and roll. The show opened with an energetic “Wondering.” Keyboardist JoJo Hermann took the vocals on the next song, “Blackout Blues,” that saw the set’s only segue into “Pigeons.” The next song, “One Arm Steve” is always a welcome addition to any set.The band then slowed things down with “Expiration Day,” which provided a slowed down moment to give everyone a breather before raging the rest of the set. “Holden Oversoul” was blazing, with a piercing organ solo from Hermann. The chemistry between members was palpable. As Hermann was letting it rip, guitarist Jimmy Herring subtly added to guitar licks without taking the spotlight away from the keys. And next to him, guitarist John Bell was nimbly plucking away at his own guitar. “Love Tractor” got everyone stomping along with the beat before the set ended.The second set continued the party. They opened with “Tail Dragger,” and a vampire vixen was on the screen to give things a darker tone. Later on in the set “Barstools and Dreamers” was a lot of fun, especially with a “Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Self)” jam/rap that was very cool. One of the best segments of the night followed, with a “Goin’ Out West” segueing into “Shut Up and Drive” with a whole lot of drums and bass in between. The two separate jams featuring Dave Schools and percussionists Sunny Ortiz and Duane Trucks were amazing.After an fantastic second set, they encored with “Nobody’s Loss” and then “Mr. Soul.” With night two in the books, there remains one last show for Spreadheads. The show tonight will be the tour closer. Bring it on Panic.Check out the setlist from the show below, courtesy of PanicStream:Setlist: Widespread Panic at Chicago Theatre, Chicago, IL – 5/6/16Set 1: Wondering, Blackout Blues > Pigeons, Her Dance Needs No Body, One Arm Steve, Use Me, Steven’s Cat, Expiration Day, Holden Oversoul > Love TractorSet 2: Tail Dragger, Don’t Be Denied, Tickle The Truth, Bowlegged Woman > You Got Yours, Barstools and Dreamers, Goin’ Out West > Drums & Bass > Drums > Drums & Bass > Shut Up and Drive, Bear’s Gone Fishin’ > Bust It Big, Sell SellEncore: Nobody’s Loss, Mr SoulCheck out a full gallery of images below, courtesy of Ojeda Photography:last_img read more

Focus on the future of food

first_imgThe concept behind the Weatherhead Center for International Affair’s Global Food+ 2017 summit was simple: expand knowledge and the discussion about the planet’s rapidly changing food supply chain. In 24, seven-minute speed-talks, scholars and researchers in the fields of health, food, and environmental science focused on the challenges of feeding the global population.More than 200 students, faculty, and community members attended the summit Friday in the Tsai Auditorium at the Harvard University Center for Government and International Studies. The event was also streamed live on Facebook.“Global food matters, and we’re here to celebrate the phenomenal amount of research going on in the greater Boston area in almost every imaginable discipline,” said event co-organizer Willam C. Clark, the Harvey Brooks Professor of International Science, Public Policy, and Human Development at Harvard Kennedy School. “We are getting a taste of what some of our colleagues are up to, and taking what we’re doing here and connecting it with action around the world.”The four-hour program included academic experts from Harvard, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Boston University, Tufts University, Cornell University, Bard College, and the University of Vermont. Student and faculty researchers shared their current findings and explored cross-cultural concerns and the impacts of integrated world food systems.The succinct presentations covered a dynamic range of topics, including childhood obesity, food waste, gastronomical archeology, the American Farm Bill, veganism, economic values, and food security around the world. Related Author makes case for ‘uniquely toxic’ health effects in talk at HLS Sugar stands accused The keynote address was given by Shenggen Fan, director general of the International Food Policy Research Institute. He spoke about identifying ways the agri-food industry can reshape its systems to improve global nutrition by working together.“For the past several decades, the world has made tremendous progress in reducing hunger and undernutrition. However, challenges remain grave,” Fan said. “Researchers from a broad range of disciplines in the Boston area are helping to build the evidence base, train students from around the world, and share knowledge to help reshape the food system.”In the first talk, Elizabeth M. Wolkovich, assistant professor of organismic and evolutionary biology and a Faculty Fellow of the Arnold Arboretum, discussed a likely future decline in crops in the world’s wine-growing regions due to climate change, and how shifts in viticultural practices might aid in adaptation.Assessing the net risks and net benefits of food is vital, explained Elsie Sunderland, the Thomas D. Cabot Associate Professor of Environmental Science and Engineering at Harvard. Her presentation, “Impacts of Environmental Change on Contaminants in Seafood,” focused on the intersection of toxicology and nutrition. Sunderland described how chemical compounds and climate change can alter marine ecosystems, and the need to support policy initiative on a global scale.Nina Gheihman, a Ph.D. candidate in sociology at Harvard’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS), talked about the shift in societal views of veganism over the past several decades. Her presentation, “Innovation as Activism: The Case of Veganism in the United States, France, and Israel,” invited people to ask questions about their ties to the social norms of their food choices.“I think it’s important to be skeptical of anything, including veganism. It makes sense for myself in regard to animals and the planet, but the onus is on people to do the research for themselves,” she said. “I understand when people say if my actions can reduce suffering in some way, then that’s good. But like with any cultural practice, you can’t just assume it blindly.”“Food security is an interdisciplinary concern that crosses political and geographical borders, and this event reflects the Weatherhead Center’s mission of confronting pressing international issues,” said Ted Gilman, the center’s executive director.“It’s a good way to share the intellectual enterprise of discovery from a wide variety of disciplines in a way that a non-specialist audience can appreciate it,” said Robert Paarlberg, an adjunct professor of public policy at the Harvard Kennedy School and a co-organizer of the event, who gave a talk titled “Why We Grow GMOs for Animals But Not People.”This was the Weatherhead Center’s second time bringing people together on the topic. The forum in 2015 showcased the research of Harvard faculty in food and agriculture, but this year included other Boston-area institutions.“It’s really different this year. We wanted to expand the scope, especially for students at all the other universities, to give them a view of what roles non-land-grant colleges play on global food issues,” said Jess Newman ’17, an M.P.A. candidate at the Kennedy School and an M.B.A. candidate at MIT, who was student organizer of the event.Marena Lin ’11, a Ph.D. candidate in Earth and planetary sciences at GSAS, said it is important to have diverse voices on such a vital topic.“It’s incredibly important to hear what people are working on, which is fodder for future collaboration,” she said. “Everyone can get something different out of it, see different perspectives, and have different lenses on the same problem.”Clark said in the end there is only one world food system, and the event stirred the pot for researchers, students, administrators, business people, and the public to talk with each other.“It is by far the most incredible food event I have ever been to,” he said. “And I’m not even a foodie.”Harvard University Center for the Environment, which partnered with the Weatherhead Center on Global Food+, is presenting a series titled “Future of Food: Crops, Climate, and Consequences” through May. The next lecture is April 23 and features David Lobell of Stanford University. Additional Boston-area Global Food+  partners include Harvard Kennedy School, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Boston University, and Tufts University.last_img read more

Seniors seek opportunities to serve

first_imgFor seniors networking with representatives from national and international service programs Wednesday night at the Post-Graduate Service Fair, volunteer work after graduation can be more than a “year off.” Michael Hebbeler, director for student leadership and senior transitions at the CSC, said the fair, hosted by the Center for Social Concerns (CSC) in the Joyce Center, offered another option for students looking for jobs from every college. “It’s a full-time job,” Hebbeler said. “It’s a misconception that it’s a year off and you’re kind of volunteering here and there. [The programs] are looking for students in all disciplines, there is accounting work to be done, there’s environmental work to be done, there’s counseling [and] education. Students of all majors should be able to find something that fits their skill set, their passions.” Hebbeler was the conduit between the graduate service world and the student body. He said the fair was primarily for seniors looking for opportunities to serve after graduatioy. “[There are] post-graduate opportunities ranging from health care to education to ministry,” Hebbeler said. “In the programs, [you’re] living in community, living simply, living on a small stipend, but engaged in work that promotes the common good that really carries out the mission of the University in a very direct way.” He said the international and large programs are the most competitive for applicants. The full-time positions range from small stipends to salaries, and from living in community to living alone, he said. “But all of the organizations are focused on work of peace and justice in a very direct way,” Hebbeler said. “We welcome all these programs, There are bigger programs, [such as] Teach for America, [Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE)], Peace Corps, and we also really value the small programs who do very good work in their smaller communities.” He said the fair benefited students looking for a variety of choices. “There’s something for everybody,” he said. You can find your niche, the community you want to live with, the work you want to do, whether you want a large program or a small program.” Volunteers typically commit one to two years to work 40 or more hours per week, Hebbeler said. He said the time spent serving others guides students as they discern their skillsets in the community and in the business world. “Students find themselves,” he said. “They mature, they grow in wisdom, they grow in skill set and they are more marketable for jobs after this or applying to grad school. Oftentimes this experience makes them a better and more competitive applicant. Of course we don’t promote it for the resume, but practically speaking it does help.” The programs intend to help students serve outside of their comfort zone, he said. “In the end, the real intention is students wanting to live out the mission of the University in a direct and fulfilling way, in relationship with other populations that will stretch them,” Hebbeler said. “These are oftentimes not comfortable positions, but because of that they will grow.”last_img read more

City traffic aids undergo 3-day seminar with MMDA

first_imgMMDA training personnel conducted athree-day traffic management seminar to 42 traffic aides of the Public Safetyand Transportation Management Office (PSTMO) from Nov. 26 to 28. Also discussed were Traffic Directionand Control techniques, assessing movement of traffic, traffic stops, andcontrol zones, traffic violations, what to do during compromising or unusualsituations, and ticket issuance. Four months ago in July, 15 technicalpersonnel of the MMDA also came over to study the traffic situation of the citythen made recommendations on how to best to manage it. Mayor Jerry Treñas previously said hewould be pushing through with the intelligent traffic system (ITS) that thenmayor Jed Patrick Mabilog proposed in 2017. Such a system could help preventfatal road accidents, he said. The trainers also tackledinternational traffic signs, road markings, road safety audit as well asphysical drills. He said an ITS would discouragedrivers from disregarding traffic rules and regulations, and it would also helplaw enforcers identify and catch violators. An ITS involves the use ofclosed-circuit television cameras capable of determining the speed of vehicles(if they are over-speeding) and recording them. It would also entail theestablishment of a command/monitoring center.center_img Mabilog thought of having an ITS forthe city to address traffic congestion, stop illegal parking and curb recklessdriving that mostly result to vehicular accidents. The focus was Republic Act 4136 or theLand Transportation and Traffic Code. In January 2017 Mabilog formed atechnical working group and the city government allotted P25 million for thesystem.

TENNIS : Orange needs strong final weekend of regular season to stay in NCAA tournament hunt

first_img Comments Luke Jensen admits his Syracuse team is sitting squarely on the NCAA tournament bubble right now. With a No. 57 national ranking, the Orange knows there is still work to do before it can achieve its season-long goal.The Big East tournament next weekend is Syracuse’s last chance to make a statement. Despite racking up some quality wins this year, SU’s weak schedule overall leaves its tournament status in doubt.‘In our sport’s culture, the whole goal is to get to the tournament,’ Jensen said. ‘You need a schedule that reflects that. It’s the game within the game.’But before the Orange competes in the conference tournament, it must finish the regular season strong this weekend against Georgetown and Seton Hall. The Orange was ranked No. 39 in late February, but fell as it took on and dominated lower-level competition, winning its last four matches by a combined 27-1.Jensen and SU know winning next weekend’s Big East tournament in Tampa, Fla., is the only way to secure the ultimate goal of a tournament bid. Jensen said the team remains focused on winning to move closer to that goal rather than the tournament bubble.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘They’ve always been focused on the next match,’ Jensen said. ‘There are no motivation issues, and we’ve just got to point our energy in the right direction.’But the Orange players feel the team is good enough to earn an at-large bid. The team just hasn’t had a chance to prove itself against quality opponents.Teams are hesitant to schedule Syracuse – a program still far from elite in college tennis – because they know even a dominating win could bring them down in the rankings. It’s a frustrating cycle for the Orange. Syracuse can’t improve its reputation without beating quality teams, but quality teams are less likely to schedule the Orange with its current status.That makes Syracuse’s matchups with top programs even more important.‘We’ve got to take advantage of the nationally ranked teams,’ Jensen said. ‘We’re an us-versus-the-world type of team, and we’re the little guy. We have to take the anger and frustration out on the court.’On the court, Syracuse has taken advantage of its opportunities against top teams this year. The Orange has defeated ranked teams in Boston College, Harvard and Yale.Senior captain Emily Harman has seen her team receive more respect, slowly but surely, over her years at Syracuse.But Harman has never made the NCAA tournament. She feels this team is capable of providing that final achievement, due in part to an increased confidence level stemming from this year’s respectable level of competition compared to prior years.‘Our belief comes from some of our biggest wins coming this year,’ Harman said. ‘In the past it was all over the place with belief, but we’re more mentally prepared and confident now. I believe in myself and this team 110 percent.’Harman said she and her teammates want the tournament berth badly.‘We’re all on the same page, and we all want it just as much,’ Harman said. ‘I believe in every one of these girls, and I know they’ll all do everything they can.’Harman feels every Syracuse team she has played on was capable of winning in Tampa, but the team just didn’t play well enough when it mattered. A Big East championship has always been the goal, and this year Harman feels the team is ready to accomplish it.The Orange is now practicing consistently outside at Skytop, as opposed to indoors at the Drumlins Tennis Center. All remaining matches will be contested outdoors, and the final push for the NCAA tournament begins this weekend against Seton Hall and Georgetown.Jensen knows his team is good enough. It’s just a matter of showing it.‘If we don’t play well, we can lose,’ Jensen said. ‘But if we play well, we won’t lose.’[email protected] Published on April 11, 2012 at 12:00 pm Contact Kevin: [email protected]center_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Spruill turns in strong showing at Pro Day after not receiving NFL Combine invite

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ While Jay Bromley and Jerome Smith entered Syracuse Pro Day looking to improve their measurables from the NFL Scouting Combine, fellow NFL Draft hopeful Marquis Spruill didn’t have that luxury.Spruill was on the initial list of NFL Draft Combine considerations, SU Assistant Athletics Director for Athletic Performance Will Hicks said, but ultimately was not one of the 335 players invited.So on Wednesday, the former Orange linebacker gave scouts from 29 NFL teams their first look at his “raw” speed and strength.“They liked my speed, they like my little bit of weight improvement, and they liked me as an athlete and a player,” Spruill said.Spruill increased his weight to 231 pounds after weighing in at 224 as a senior middle linebacker. He said he was happy with all of his performances, but did not indicate specific numbers. Hicks said he ran a “very good” 40-yard dash and had a vertical jump of about 34-1/2 inches.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textMost interestingly, though, Spruill is being looked at as a nickel linebacker as well as an outside linebacker. His athleticism offers him multiple opportunities at the next level.“Because of his speed and his ability to run on 3rd down, he’s got a chance to do that,” Hicks said. “He’s very versatile. He’s going to be a very good special teams player.”Spruill said he had a tough time putting on those additional nine pounds, and even did some drill work for defensive backs after SU’s season ended.On Wednesday, he took part in a backpedaling drill, but otherwise stuck to the linebackers’ positional drills.Spruill said he was pleased with his overall performance. Now he’ll just continue working out in hopes of having his name called at the Draft on May 8-10.Said Bromley: “I know Marquis because I’ve trained with him for years. He’s a freak and he showed that.” Comments Published on March 26, 2014 at 7:38 pm Contact Stephen: [email protected] | @Stephen_Bailey1last_img read more

The GCAA has made it clear that no airline has been granted approval for the conduct of a scheduled commercial operation. The GCAA has noted that it will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation in Guyana. CMC The airport was scheduled to reopen its runway on Wednesday to international commercial flights. The Authority says it has drafted Regulations and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to guide aviation stakeholders on the measures which are expected to aid in the mitigation of the spread of Covid-19 and the full resumption of aviation-related activities. Phase Two which is expected to allow additional repatriation and commercial flights will now commence on the 1st August. The airports, under the current phase will continue to allow limited repatriation flights, outgoing flights, cargo flights, medivac flights and special authorized flights. However, in a statement, the GCAA said it consulted with the Ministry of Public Health and has made some adjustments to its reopening plan. The Airports have already put several systems and safety measures in place for their eventual reopening. The Director-General of the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) Egbert Field said the Authority and the National COVID-19 Task Force consider the health of Guyanese and the nation as a top priority and that triggered the delay in the reopening plan.last_img read more
