Trey Anastasio Band Makes Its Debut At The Fillmore In Philly To Start Second Leg Of Tour

first_imgTrey Anastasio Band geared back up for the second leg of their tour last night following a two-week break after their performance at The Danforth Music Hall in Toronto, Canada, on May 7th. To kick off this latest tour leg, the eight-piece band made their debut at The Fillmore in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania before the group continues on to DelFest, Summer Camp, and Red Rocks Amphitheatre in the coming week.During last night’s performance, Trey Anastasio Band opened their show up with “Sand,” harkening back to their tour opener at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York, in mid-April. Across the first set, the band worked through regular numbers from the TAB catalog including “Mozambique” (which heavily featured Natalie Cressman), “Cayman Review,” “Valentine,” “Tuesday,” “Pigtail,” and “Curlew’s Call.” The first set also Phish’s “Magilla,” “Gotta Jibboo,” and “Ocelot” sprinkled within the set.For Trey Anastasio Band’s second set at The Fillmore, the group opened up with the classics “Drifting” and “Night Speaks To A Woman.” From there, the group moved into a cover of Leon Russell’s “Delta Lady,” marking the third time the ensemble has played the song following its debut in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on May 2nd, and its second performance a few days later in Indianapolis on May 5th. Again, pulling from their tour opener at The Capitol Theatre, the group returned to a cover of Portugal The Man’s “Feel It Still” following TAB numbers “Simple Twist Up Dave” and “The Song.” After Crosby, Stills, & Nash’s “49 Bye Byes,” and Anastasio’s “Last Tube” and “Architect,” Jennifer Hartswick led the group to close out the second set with covers of Gorillaz’s “Clint Eastwood” and Led Zeppelin’s “Black Dog.”To end the night, Trey Anastasio Band put on a three-song encore for the Philadelphia crowd. Trey and the horn section—composed of Cressman, Hartswick, and saxophonist James Casey—sang an a capella rendition of “The Parting Glass” before the rest of the gang joined in for “Heavy Things” and “Push On Til The Day” to close out the night for good.

50+ Dead, 500+ Injured In Mass Shooting At Music Festival On Las Vegas Strip

first_imgUPDATE [10/2/17 – 12:30 PM EDT]: This morning, the world awoke to the the horrifying news of a deadly mass shooting during a music festival on the Las Vegas strip that claimed the lives of more than 50 people and saw 400+ more people injured, as thousands more looked on in terror. According to reports, a lone gunman opened fire into the crowd attending the open-air country music concert, Route 91 Harvest Festival at the Las Vegas Village from a 32nd floor window of the adjacent Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino beginning during country singer Jason Aldean‘s performance. The death and injury tolls make this one of the deadliest mass shootings in United States history.The gunman has been identified as 64-year old Stephen Paddock of Mesquite, NV. Police responded to reports of the shooting just after 10 p.m. (1 a.m. ET), and the suspect was apprehended and fatally shot in the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, officials said. The sheriff also said authorities think they have found Marilou Danley, the woman believed to be traveling with the suspect.Authorities found several weapons in Paddock’s room after using explosives to enter, law enforcement officials reported. It was not immediately clear what kinds of weapons were found. At least one off-duty Las Vegas police officer was shot, Lombardo said. Several other off-duty police officers are believed to be among the dead and injured.NBC News spoke to people who were at the concert when the shooting occurred. “We heard what sounded like firecrackers going off. Then all of a sudden we heard what sounded like a machine gun. People started screaming that they were hit… When we started running out there were probably a couple hundred [people] on the ground,” Meghan Kearney described to MSNBC. “People kept dropping and dropping…People were getting shot one foot away from us,” she said. “People were trying to save their friends. There were gunshots everywhere. Helping them would’ve meant that we got shot, too.”“After the second round… everybody hit the ground around us,” concert-goer Sean said on TODAY. “It seemed like people were hit everywhere.” Aldean later said via Instagram that he and his band were safe. Witnesses said that the first round of shots sounded like fireworks. Only after the second burst of gunfire did the band stop playing. Another concergoer, Jon Bessette, described a scene of “pandemonium” as “the band ran off stage. Everyone was running, people were getting trampled,” he said.You can view a shot of the large crowds attending the festival on the highly trafficked Las Vegas Strip from the first day of Route 91 Harvest Festival below, via the festival’s Facebook page. The event organizers have yet to officially comment on the horrifying events of Sunday evening.Police have urged families looking to locate missing loved ones to call 1-866-535-5654.This story is developing.

Group reviews inconsistent dorm policies

first_imgMembers of Campus Life Council (CLC) discussed inconsistencies in dorm policy, particularly between male and female residence halls, at their meeting Friday. The conversation focused on differences between the men and women’s residence halls regarding weekend activities. Some students expressed they felt there is a lack of consistency in the rules enforced by rectors. Both students and faculty supported an effort to push toward a consistent alcohol policy and in-house punishments. “The baseline is Indiana state law. As far as policy, it’s in DuLac. We are not exempt from the civil law, no one is exempt,” Morrissey Manor rector Fr. Ron Vierling said. Vierling said responses from rectors sometimes appear inconsistent because other students are not aware of the full details of a specific situation. “When we talk about a pastoral approach (to these situations), we talk about the primacy of the individual,” Vierling said. “My response to an individual situation may seem inconsistent because not everyone in the dorm knows the entire story.” Members of the council also voiced complaints that men frequently receive lighter punishments than women for underage drinking. Alcohol policy in DuLac is written with the same guidelines regardless of gender, Vierling said. Vierling said the first alcohol offense can be treated in-house, but others are required to be sent to the Office of Residence Life. Annie Selak, rector of Walsh Hall, said this is the case “provided it is not severe intoxication.” Other members of the council expressed discontent with dorm rules for using side doors after parietals. In women’s dorms, usually only the front door is open after parietals, but in some men’s residence halls such as Morrissey, residents can enter through either of two doors after parietals. “Keenan [Hall] has all three doors available to access at all hours,” Keenan senator John Vernon said. “But after midnight in some girls dorms, you can only go through the main door.” Consistency in policy was also addressed regarding instituting modular furniture in dorms. “All of the contraptions you see in the different dorms are not up to code,” student body president Brett Rocheleau said. “It’s mainly dealing with fire safety and the safety of our students.” Rocheleau said all dorms will likely switch over to modular furniture within the next five years. The council lastly discussed hall taxes and how they vary from dorm to dorm. “The hall receives no money from the University, so the only operating budget of residence halls are hall tax and concession stand,” Selak said. Students often wonder where this money goes, Vierling said. “Our hall tax is set by the Manor, by the council,” he said. “We publish a financial statement to the dorm every month. It’s your money. You should know how it’s spent.”,Members of Campus Life Council (CLC) discussed inconsistencies in dorm policy, particularly between male and female residence halls, at their meeting Friday.

Meryl Streep Explains What She Liked About Playing August: Osage County’s ‘Horrible’ Matriarch on The View

first_img View Comments Meryl Streep isn’t crazy. No, the greatest film actress of all time knows what a nasty, acid-tongued and devious character Violet Weston is in Tracy Letts’ Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece August: Osage County. But, Streep, who’s been nominated for the Oscar 17(!) times, wanted to play the cancer-battling, drug-addicted matriarch in John Wells’ film version anyway. On December 19, the legend headed to ABC’s The View to chat with Barbara Walters and Co. about what it was like playing Violet. “It was horrible! She’s mean. Mean as a snake,” she said. “She’s just sick of not saying what she thinks.” Streep also chatted about what it was like living with the cast during filming and why she’s aware of some insane thing called “Streep fatigue.” Watch the interview and go see August: Osage County in wide release on January 10!last_img read more

Southern Tier hockey group partners with the NHL

first_imgO’Brien said the new partnership is part of a five year plan to increase engagement and expand the group. She said the local team has served as a model for others across the country. “(ASHA is) where every player is a star, and what we really wanted to do is take a look at that everyone has abilities,” said Jen O’Brien. “It’s not always just our players, our athletes from all abilities, from those just stepping on the ice to those who can play at a more competitive level, as well as their peers, coaches, junior coaches and volunteers.” The American Special Hockey Association (ASHA) announced a new partnership with the National Hockey League (NHL). The group helps developmentally disabled athletes learn the sport of hockey and develop team building skills. “We’re also working with the AHL as well so like here in Binghamton, we’re so excited to have a great relationship with the Binghamton Devils, and they of course welcome our teams out onto the ice as well as help support our event we had in January.” (WBNG) — A local organization is getting a big boost at the national level. O’Brien said the organization started with roughly 55 teams across the country. Today, there are now more than 90 full teams, and plans for another 20. The organization’s executive director said the new partnership will help enforce the idea that hockey is for everyone.last_img read more

Belgium expects to attract €5bn in Dutch cross-border pension assets

first_imgDutch pension assets in Belgium-based IORPs are set to increase by several billions of euros over the next year if Dutch companies’ current plans are realised, according to the Belgian regulator (FSMA).Speaking at Amsterdam’s Free University, Luk Behets, an adviser on the prudential supervision of pension funds at the FSMA, said the assets of Dutch schemes considering relocation currently represented one-quarter of pension fund assets in Belgium, worth approximately €23bn.Behets said Belgian IORPs were now implementing seven Dutch pension plans, with combined assets of €550m, adding that this equated with 60% of assets in cross-border arrangements.While he said the FSMA expected “firm decisions” to be taken this year, he did not provide a figure for the number of schemes considering a cross-border move or the names of their sponsors. It has recently come to light that multinational companies DuPont, ExxonMobil, BP, General Electric and Aon are planning to place their Dutch pension funds into a Belgium-based IORP.Also speaking at the congress, Rick Hoogendoorn, a pensions policy expert at the Dutch regulator (DNB), said DNB was satisfied with the security of pension rights in Belgium.He cited the use of a similar discount rate for Dutch pension rights, the application of Dutch social and labour legislation and “strong, friendly ties” with the FSMA.Hoogendoorn also noted that, in Belgium, the risk of rights cuts depends largely on the risk of non-payment by the sponsor as a consequence of the usual sponsor’s guarantee.He said the regulator did not consider this a problem from a supervisory point of view.A couple of years ago, Johnson & Johnson lost a lawsuit against DNB, which rejected the company’s request to allocate 60% of its portfolio to equities, with an interest hedge of no more than 10%.The pharmaceutical’s Belgian scheme has now adopted just such a strategy.Responding to the case, Hoogendoorn pointed out that, in the Netherlands, the regulator is prohibited from taking a sponsor’s guarantee into account when assessing the prudence of a scheme’s investment policy.He also observed that no Dutch pension funds, low-cost DC vehicles or insurers were currently carrying out cross-border pension arrangements for foreign schemes.last_img read more

No breaks for Pulis

first_img Press Association New Crystal Palace manager Tony Pulis felt his side just did not get the breaks after they lost 1-0 at Norwich. “You have to take your chances. We did not have the breaks today,” said Pulis, whose appointment was confirmed just ahead of the Hull game. “How the hell (Norwich defender Sebastien) Bassong gets that (clearance) over the crossbar from there, it was unbelievable, and then the kid who stops Barry’s shot from going in with his header, Cameron had a really good chance, so we have had the opportunities. “But I can’t fault their work-rate, they gave it everything, but you need a break and we did not get that.” Sunderland’s goalless draw at Aston Villa pushed Palace back to the bottom of the table, but they are not yet cast adrift ahead as the south London outfit prepare for key home games against West Ham and then Cardiff. “There are certain clubs we cannot compete with, and there are others we have to compete with so against those you have to give a performance,” added Pulis, who left Stoke at the end of last season. “We have come away from home and done that because we dictated the game for long periods. “The quality at times, I was very pleased with. “But it is going to be tough. We have a mountain to climb in a lot of respects, but it is not the first time I have been in this position.” Hughton’s role, meanwhile, has come under scrutiny following inconsistent results on the back of a £20million summer spending spree. The Norwich manager, though, felt his side – hit by injuries to key midfielders Anthony Pilkington and Robert Snodgrass last week – produced the required response. “It feels like a big win for us,” Hughton said. “We played very well in the first half and scored a good goal, but we knew they would come back. “It is never comfortable viewing when you look at the league table and you are in a position you do not want to be in, so whatever places we have jumped tonight is a nice feeling.” England Under-21 winger Nathan Redmond, signed from Birmingham, was the instigator of the goal for Hooper, with a determined run down the right before Johan Elmander swept the ball into the penalty area. It dropped through to Wes Hoolahan at the far post, and he squared it for Hooper to roll the ball into the net. “I was pleased with his overall performance,” said Hughton of the striker signed from Celtic in a £5million deal. “He is getting stronger and fitter after missing the first few weeks of the season and his overall contribution was good, so I am really pleased for him.” Irish playmaker Hoolahan made his first Premier League start of the season. Hughton said: “There is no doubt his best position is more central and for this season so far I have looked at other options, with two up front. “It has been tougher for Wes, but the feeling we have for him is the same because he is a super player and has just lost out on some choices by myself. “He has been frustrated, but he has handled it very well and trains very well every day.” There was even a cameo for disgruntled Norwich forward Luciano Becchio, reprimanded by Hughton after speaking out over lack of opportunities, sent on with 11 minutes to go. “You want players to be knocking your door down, wanting to play, and the door is never closed,” Hughton said. “The moment somebody thinks it is not their time and they are not going to be playing then something happens, but that is part and parcel of the game.” Gary Hooper’s goal on 30 minutes proved enough to give the Canaries a much-needed victory, which handed under-pressure Chris Hughton some breathing space following seven Barclays Premier League defeats before Saturday afternoon. However, the Eagles – boosted by last weekend’s away win at Hull – were probably worth a point, particularly for their second-half efforts, and had seen a shot from Barry Bannan headed onto the crossbar by Norwich defender Martin Olsson while, with just a couple of minutes left, Cameron Jerome missed his kick when in front of goal. last_img read more
