The Disco Biscuits Kick Off New Year’s Eve Run With Winding “Middle Section” Jam [Full Video]

first_img[Video: The Disco Biscuits][Photo: Silky Shots via Facebook] Last night, The Disco Biscuits kicked off their four-night New Year’s Eve run at New York City’s PlayStation Theater. The show was solid from the start, with the band diving head first into a fiery first set with little adjustment or warm-up needed.Notably, the first set saw the group spend the majority of their time jamming through the middle sections of the songs—the “Apple Butter Toast” section of “Mindless Dribble”, the “Wearing A Towel” section of “7-11”, and the “Suspended in the Air” section of “Astronaut”—making for a highly unusual setlist from the start. After the “Astronaut” ending, the Biscuits hit the relative rarity “Sister Judy’s Soul Shack” before closing the set with the well-paired, albeit somewhat opposite juxtaposition of “Reactor” into “Spectacle”.As for the second set, the Disco Biscuits returned with “Astronaut” into “Air Song”. A highlight of the dialed-in set two was “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy”, a tune that’s been played every December by the group since 2011 and has become a staple of their New Year’s Eve run since 1999. While the beloved Tschaikovsky was light and delicate, the Biscuits came of the song with a vengeance, making for a harsh and gritty transition into the end of “Reactor”, which was a particularly patient and driving jam throughout.Setlist: The Disco Biscuits | PlayStation Theater | New York City, NY | 12/28/2017Set I: 7-11-> Mindless Dribble (Apple Butter Toast)-> 7-11 (Wearing a Towel)-> Astronaut (Suspended in the Air)-> Astronaut (ending), Sister Judy’s Soul Shack, Reactor-> SpectacleSet II: Astronaut-> Air Song-> Svenghali (inverted)-> Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy-> Reactor (ending)Encore: World is Spinninglast_img read more

Thousands flee Hong Kong for UK, fearing China crackdown

first_imgHONG KONG (AP) — Thousands of people from Hong Kong are fleeing their hometown since Beijing imposed a strict national security law on the territory last summer. Many say China’s encroachment on their way of life and civil liberties has become unbearable, and they want to seek a better future for their children abroad. An exodus has begun to Britain, with many taking advantage of a new immigration pathway that will allow up to 5 million eligible Hong Kongers to live, work and eventually settle in the U.K. Applications for the British National Overseas visa officially opened Sunday, and Britain’s government estimates that over 300,000 people will take up the offer of extended residency rights in the next five years. China responded by derecognizing U.K.-issued special travel documents.last_img read more

High-Heel-A-Thon supports hospital

first_imgJunior Libbie Gilliland sprinted 50 yards in her favorite pair of high heels Monday night. Gilliland, sporting the black heels decorated with silver bells and pearls, took first place in the second annual High-Heel-A-Thon sponsored by the Saint Mary’s Dance Marathon. The proceeds from the race benefit the Riley Hospital for Children, which has 19 locations throughout Indiana. Gilliland said the race is an innovative way to support the hospital’s work. “I did the High-Heel-A-Thon because I have medical conditions,” Gilliland said. “Even though I go to a hospital in the Chicago area, Riley Hospital still holds the same concept. It’s a great way for me to give back.” Dance Marathon president senior Becca Guerin said the High-Heel-A-Thon contributes to the overall goal of the marathon that will be hosted later in the year. Each high-heeled runner paid a $5 entry fee. “The people who ultimately benefit from our fundraisers like the High-Heel-A-Thon are the patients and families of Riley’s Children Hospital,” Guerin said. “It is gratifying to know that the funds we raise will make a direct impact at Riley.” The College hopes to increase its overall contribution to the hospital this year. Last year, the marathon raised over $63,000 for Riley Children’s Hospital, Guerin said. “This year, our monetary goal is to increase last year’s total by 20 percent,” she said. Juniors Kate Kellogg and Liz Kraig, co-executives for Dance Marathon fundraising, planned the race. “It’s a fun event to get the campus excited about Dance Marathon,” Kellogg said. “The idea is just to create awareness throughout the year. The High-Heel-A-Thon works perfectly in the ‘classy and fabulous’ atmosphere of Saint Mary’s.” Junior Nora Quirk finished second and junior Sarah Feeley took third. Students who attended to watch the event were aware of the impact made at Riley Children’s Hospital. Junior Christina Barra said many members of the College support the Dance Marathon in some way. “Dance Marathon is a great cause,” Barra said. “It’s great to see all the support from the Saint Mary’s community.”last_img read more

Gourmet garden

first_imgBy George BoyhanUniversity of GeorgiaGourmet salad greens don’t have to cost a fortune. You can easily grow your own.Most salad greens are cool-weather crops. Depending on where yougarden in Georgia, you can start sowing salad green seeds inAugust and continue every week through late October.Seeds of salad greens are sold as mixes or separately. The mixesmay contain any combination of lettuces and greens. Some aretangy. Others are mild or bitter. Combine them with a zestydressing, and the salad is no longer something that’s just goodfor you.Arugula has a toasty, pungentflavor and is a favorite for mixes. It’s rich in beta caroteneand higher in vitamin C than almost any other salad green.Endive is in the same family aslettuce. With smooth, pale, long heads, it has more flavor thanmany lettuces. Curly endive, sometimes called chicory, has curlyedged, green leaves.Escarole has broad, wavy greenleaves with a pleasant, slightly bitter flavor.Radicchio, or red chicory, addscolor and mildly bitter flavor to salads.Mache, also called corn salad, has velvety leaves and a mild taste.Watercress has pungent sprigs that look like parsley. Cresses have a peppery flavor, while mustards “bite” your tongue.How to grow themPlant salad green seeds a quarter-inch deep in rows 18 to 24inches apart. You can space them as close as 6 to 12 inches ifyou plan to harvest young, immature leaves.To keep those fresh salads coming, plant about 5 feet per weekthrough the fall.Salad greens can be grown in semishade but do best with at least3 to 4 hours of sun. Fertilize your greens moderately with oneside-dressing. The growing season for lettuce varies with thecultivar. Most will be ready to harvest within 40 to 60 days.Head lettuce will take longer to form a head.Harvest the greens with scissors when they’re young. Cut theyoung leaves a half-inch to an inch above the soil and the leavesmay regrow for a second harvest. Or cut them at ground level fora single harvest.Seed sourcesHere are some seed companies that offer gourmet salad-green seeds for home gardeners: Johnny’s Selected Seeds, 955 Benton Avenue, Winslow, Me.04901 (207) 861-3900 (www.johnnyseeds.com)Nichols Garden Nursery, 1190 Old Salem Road NE, Albany, OR97321-4580 (www.nicholsgardennursery.com/)Territorial Seed Company, P.O.

It’s an open-plan space that breathes life into the lounge and dining spaces.“It’s all solid timber,” Ms Holden said. “These new kitchens, you put water on them and they melt, but that’s just such a solid kitchen — you just couldn’t build cupboards like that nowadays.”The kitchen is also an archive, with a surprise waiting for the new owners in the cabinetry. “Inside the pantry door, you’ve got the kids’ height chart still there from the 1950s,” she said. “So it’s got this real historic feel to it — and it’s a home that the family just loved.”Ms Holden said there’s already been great response.

Focus on technology

first_img Here, Press Association Sport’s Damian Spellman takes a look at the way technology has been used to help officials in recent years. VIDEO EVIDENCE Football Association chairman Greg Dyke is to push for trials of video replay technology as the debate over refereeing standards rages on in the wake of Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho’s outspoken comments at the weekend. The Football Association has used video evidence for more than 30 years to help enforce the rules of the game. As far back as October 1983, Birmingham’s Noel Blake was banned for head-butting Aston Villa’s Steve McMahon at the end of a tempestuous derby, an incident which had gone unseen by the referee, but was captured by Central TV cameras. The huge increase in television coverage since means the vast majority of incidents are recorded – and disciplinary chiefs can use the footage in a number of ways. While all games are reviewed generally by the FA, a panel comprising former referees Eddie Wolstenholme, Steve Dunn and Alan Wiley rules on incidents not seen at the time by match officials, while other exceptional events can be referred to a regulatory commission. That was the case when Manchester City defender Ben Thatcher was banned for eight games with a further 15 suspended after knocking Portsmouth midfielder Pedro Mendes unconscious with a forearm smash in August 2006. Thatcher had only received a yellow card from referee Dermot Gallagher. RADIO COMMUNICATION FOR OFFICIALS Officials used the system for the first time at the 2006 World Cup finals in Germany with Keith Hackett, head of the Professional Game Match Officials Board, confirming in May of the same year that the technology would be used in the Premier League during the 2006-07 campaign. The system allows the referee, his assistants and the fourth official to stay in touch by way of wireless microphones and ear-pieces to alert each other to potential issues and seek clarification when required. GOAL-LINE TECHNOLOGY The goal decision system was introduced to the Barclays Premier League for the 2013-14 season as a result of Frank Lampard’s goal that never was for England against Germany at the 2010 World Cup finals. The Hawk-Eye technology uses 14 cameras and sends a signal to the referee’s watch and ear-piece within a second indicating if the ball has crossed the line. It was in place for the Community Shield clash between Manchester United and Wigan on August 11, 2013 prior to its introduction for all Premier League games the following weekend. Hawk-Eye was used for the first time at Emirates Stadium on August 17 when referee Anthony Taylor was alerted to the fact that Aston Villa midfielder Fabian Delph’s shot had not crossed the line after beating Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny and coming back off the post before rolling along the line. VANISHING SPRAY The Premier League announced on July 30, 2014 that it was to supply referees with the vanishing spray used successfully by match officials during that summer’s World Cup finals in Brazil. The spray, which allows a referee to mark both the point from which a free-kick is to be taken and the 10 yards into which defenders may not encroach, was used for the first time at the finals by Japanese referee Yuichi Nishimura during the hosts’ 3-1 victory over Croatia in Sao Paulo on June 12. Wembley was the first English stadium to witness its use during the Community Shield game between Arsenal and Manchester City on August 10 last year, and its use still raises a cheer from spectators more than six months on. VIDEO REPLAYS The Dutch Football Association (KNVB) is currently trialling video refereeing technology with 34 games having already taken place with an assistant monitoring, although as yet, not in communication with the match officials. A proposal to go live in next season’s KNVB Beker cup competition will be discussed by the International Football Association Board at its AGM in Belfast this weekend. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Trio set for Pre-Season Camp at Madureira Esporte Clube in Brazil

first_imgON the heels of a historic visit to Brazil last week where Guyana Football Federation (GFF) president Wayne Forde met with Brazilian Football Federation (Confederação Brasileira de Futebol – CBF) president Rogerio Caboclo, the partnership has already bearing fruits.The GFF, in a release, revealed that Ryan Hackett of Fruta Conquerors, Kelsey Benjamin (Georgetown Football Club) and Sese Norville of Milerock FC will spend one month at Brazilian second-division side, Madureira Esporte Clube where they will undergo pre-season training.The trio who have been part of the senior national Golden Jaguars set-up in recent times will be exposed to another level of training over a four-week period with the possibility of landing a Pro-Contract, based on their performances during that period.The young footballers were part of the historic Brazil Train and Play Camp last August when the senior national team spent two weeks there and played against the said club in a practice match.Speaking about the venture, president Forde said that this is the first of many initiatives and the goal of the GFF, (which has also presented an MoU to CBF president Rogerio Caboclo) is aimed at holistic development of the sport on and off the field of play, along with ensuring that as many as 40 players between the ages of 18 and 22 years gain exposure in Brazil over the coming months and years.“Ideally, we would prefer to have the players enter into the Brazilian Football system much younger, but unfortunately, language challenges, immigration laws and parental consideration are yet to be fully explored.”Forde maintained; “The GFF is very pleased that our work to develop a partnership with our Brazilian neighbours has started to bear fruit. This is a wonderful opportunity for the players ahead of our preparations for the Olympic Under-23 Qualifying competition in July. I would like to join the rest of Guyana in congratulating these players and wishing them every success whilst in Brazil.”President Forde also offered congratulations to the management of the respective clubs, Milerock FC, Georgetown Football Club and Fruta Conquerors, thanking them for the work they have put into moulding these players.He also indicated that the young Guyanese will likely feature in a friendly match in which Madureira Esporte Clube would play against the Qatar national team on June 9.Qatar and Japan were invited to play in the world’s oldest continental tournament – Copa America, the 46th edition of the event, which will be played in six stadiums across five cities in Brazil.The stadiums are Belo Horizonte, Porto Alegre, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador and Sao Paulo.The opening is set for the Morumbi Stadium (Sao Paulo) while the final will be held at the Maracaná Stadium (Rio de Janeiro).last_img read more
