first_imgLoad remaining images On Friday night, the 2018 edition of LOCKN’ Festival continued to exceed fans’ lofty expectations with an evening of top-notch performances and exciting collaborations both planned and unexpected. One of the Friday LOCKN’ lineup’s defining moments came by way of hard-rocking jam favorites Umphrey’s McGee, who performed their third of three sets on the weekend as the sun set over the farm.With Jason Bonham, the son of legendary Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, billed as a special guest for the set, fans expected Umphrey’s to get the Led out for their Friday set. Rather than jump straight into Zeppelin territory, the band emerged with their regular lineup in tow, starting their final LOCKN’ set with business as usual. After opening with it’s not us track “Half Delayed”, the band kick-started “Plunger”, which made its way into “Walletsworth” before segueing back into “Plunger” and, finally, moving into another it’s not us single, “The Silent Type”.Live Umphrey’s staple “JaJunk” kept the crowd dancing from there, before Brendan Bayliss welcomed out his “new favorite person in the world, Jason Bonham!” (01:59:20 on webcast playback). To begin his extended sit-in, which would last for the remainder of the set, Bonham helped Umphrey’s McGee through “Conduit”, the longtime setlist stalwart which appeared on the band’s 2011 studio album, Death By Stereo.From there, the band began a run of Led Zeppelin classics with “Good Times, Bad Times”, drummer Kris Myers owning Robert Plant‘s vocal part as Bonham recreated his father’s famous drum line and Jake Cinninger nailed Jimmy Page‘s recognizable guitar solo with gusto. Cinninger stepped to the mic next, leading the band plus Bonham through Houses of the Holy track “Dancing Days”. Continuing through the Zeppelin songbook, the band brought out a surprise special guest, former American Idol winner Taylor Hicks, to add vocals and harmonica to “When The Levee Breaks” (02:15:10), marking Umphrey’s McGee’s first performance of the tune since 7/7/12 (608 shows). Next, Bayliss took the reins for a rendition of “The Song Remains The Same”.As the band teased “The Rain Song”, Brendan Bayliss announced their final special guest with a proclamation that never fails to excite, no matter where or when it turns up: “That’s Derek Trucks, everybody. Let’s have some fun” (2:28:50). With Bonham and Andy Farag manning percussion duties and Trucks going toe-to-toe with Cinninger on dual lead guitar, Myers stepped out from behind his drum kit to lead the band through Led Zeppelin II hit “Whole Lotta Love” (their first in 444 shows) to close the set.You can also watch selected clips of Umphrey’s McGee’s Friday evening set below:Umphrey’s McGee – “Half Delayed” [Pro-Shot][Video: Relix]Umphrey’s McGee w/ Jason Bonham – “Good Times, Bad Times”[Video: Gregory Marcus]Check out a handful of photos from Umphrey’s McGee’s set with Jason Bonham, Taylor Hicks, and more below courtesy of Dave Vann.You can stream all of the remaining sets at LOCKN’ this weekend here.Setlist: Umphrey’s McGee w/ Special Guests | LOCKN’ Festival | Arrington, VA | 8/24/18One Set: Half Delayed, Plunger > Walletsworth > Plunger > The Silent Type, JaJunk, Conduit[1], Good Times Bad Times[2], Dancing Days[1], When the Levee Breaks[3], The Song Remains the Same[1], Whole Lotta Love[4][1] with Jason Bonham on drums[2] debut, Led Zeppelin; with Jason Bonham on drums[3] with Jason Bonham on drums and Taylor Hicks on harmonica and vocals[4] with Jason Bonham on drums, Derek Trucks on guitar, and Kris on vocals (no drums)Notes:with Witchy Woman (The Eagles) tease before When the Levee Breakswith The Rain Song (Led Zeppelin) tease before Whole Lotta Lovelast When the Levee Breaks 7/7/12 (608 shows)last Whole Lotta Love 2/14/14 (444 shows)Umphrey’s McGee w/ Special Guests | LOCKN’ Festival | Arrington, VA | 8/24/18 | Photos: Dave Vannlast_img read more

Two million euros will be invested in the Fortress Visitor Center

first_imgIt is a regional reception info-tourist center that would contribute to the recognizability of the Fortress and Osijek with its contents. Construction of the center should begin in the fall of this year, and the project is part of the integrated territorial investment “ITU specific goal – the restoration of brownfield sites.” In addition to HRK 15 million for the Tvrđa Visitor Center, a project to renovate the Old Bakery and Vatroslav Lisinski Square worth around HRK 66 million is underway, as well as the design of five locations worth around HRK 5 million. Recently, a contract worth 90 million kuna was signed for the project “Development and improvement of the Osijek Fortress”. In addition to the mentioned 170 million, the City of Osijek expects, in addition to EU co-financing, the reconstruction of the Lower Armory, worth about 150 million. The projects that the City of Osijek is currently implementing with EU co-financing weigh 506 million kuna, with the share of European funds as much as 375 million kuna. At this place, cyclists will also get their interior, where they will be able to refresh themselves and leave or repair their bikes. It will also be a space where there will be a multimedia hall, a souvenir shop, a shop for local, regional and national products, an exchange office and a catering facility with a large toilet, and next to it there will also be a stop for buses, taxis and cars. In the next two years, Osijek should get the Tvrđa Visitor Center, a project worth two million euros. On an area of ​​40 thousand square meters, the center will be located in the area of ​​the outer defense ring of the Fortress, and it is a reconstruction of the old Austro-Hungarian stables. center_img The visitor center is part of a comprehensive project to restore Osijek’s historic core worth 500 million kuna, which, in addition to tourists, should benefit many Osijek residents. Reconstruction and upgrading of the area along the eastern entrance to the Fortress should begin in the fall, the deadline for completion of works is two years, and the Osijek City Administration hopes that the new facilities for receiving tourists will be ready earlier.  “We will submit the project for evaluation this quarter and if everything goes according to plan, the tender for the contractor will be during the summer, and the first works should start in the fall. Although we planned that the realization would take two years, we hope that it will be completed earlier”Concludes Mlinarević. “The future Center will be a point that will represent the tourist facilities of the whole of eastern Croatia. Construction should begin in the fall of this year, and the Center will provide tourist information related to the city of Osijek, Osijek-Baranja County and the wider region and a high standard of service to visitors and tourists, parking spaces for buses and cars, shopping area for local , regional and national products, sanitary facilities, travel agencies, services for cyclists, space for tourist guides and other facilities”, Said Kornelija Mlinarević, Head of the Osijek Administrative Department for European Union Programs for Voice of Slavonia.last_img read more

Men’s 400 and 800m final highlight of IAAF World Champs Day 5

first_imgChina could be celebrating gold based on the qualifying round. Lyu Huihui may have saved her best form for when it counts as she set a new Asian record of 67.59 metres and even the 28-year-old 2015 silver medalist was surprised by her effort. Defending champion Kathrina Molitor of Germany — who missed out on the Olympics last year — also looked to be approaching medal winning form whilst Croatia’s Olympic title-holder Sara Kolak struggled to qualify.Men’s 3000m Steeplechase finalAmerican Evan Jager will bid to break Kenya’s monopoly on the event, runners from the east African powerhouse and Kenyan-born Qatari Saif Saaeed Shaheen (in 2003 and 2005) having won every edition of the steeplechase. Kenya swept the podium in Beijing two years ago and their line-up is again strong. Olympic champion Conseslus Kipruto and four-time world champion Ezekiel Kemboi will be two of a formidable outfit alongside the Ethiopian trio of Getnet Wale, Tafese Seboka and Chala Beyo, and three-time Olympic medallist and twice world medallist Mahiedine Mekhissi of France.American Evan Jager will bid to break Kenya’s monopoly on the event.Men’s 400m finalWayde van Niekerk has his first shot of a medal in his quest for an ambitious 200/400m double, the first since American Michael Johnson achieved the feat in the 1995 Gothenburg worlds. The 25-year-old South African, Usain Bolt’s self-proclaimed successor as the next track star, is defending world and Olympic champion and world record holder, but he faces a loaded field that is sure to test him to the limit.Share on: WhatsApp Frenchman Renaud Lavillenie.London, United Kingdom | AFP | Day five highlights for the IAAF World Championships on Tuesday:Men’s Pole Vault finalFrenchman Renaud Lavillenie has never won a world gold — he has a haul of four minor medals — and his form this season suggests he is in danger of going without again. However the 30-year-old returns to the stadium where he won Olympic gold in 2012 and twice in the Diamond League. He looked in better shape in qualifying whilst others struggled. “I love competing. I love fighting. And I think it is going to be very interesting,” he said.Men’s 800 metres finalRobbed of a lot of its interest in the absence of the injured David Rudisha, it would seem set up for Botswana’s Nijel Amos to go one better than he did back in 2012 in the Olympic final when his Kenyan rival broke the world record. The 23-year-old Commonwealth Games champion’s chances would appear further strengthened by the surprise failure of the previously unbeaten Emmanuel Korir to make the final. However, danger lurks in the shape of Poland’s 2015 silver medalist Adam Kszczot who beat him in the semi-final.

Mater Dei Prep Supporters Look to CBA Model

first_imgMIDDLETOWN – They may have raised the necessary money to sustain Mater Dei Prep for another year but it is only one of the hurdles going forward for supporters of the struggling Roman Catholic high school.The next step is to establish Mater Dei Prep as an independent Catholic school, like Christian Brothers Academy, Lincroft. Mater Dei Prep currently functions as a parish school overseen by the Diocese of Trenton, according to a committee member.But before that can happen, the school must submit the required paperwork to the state Department of Education, have the appropriate insurance and apply and receive approval from the municipality, along with meeting other administrative requirements and ultimately receiving approval from the Diocese of Trenton.That requires volunteers working with the campaign to establish a separate legal entity, a state registered not-forprofit corporation that will be used as an endowment to administer the donated funding. In the future, supporters hope that endowment will have a role akin to an independent educational foundation, continuing fundraising and assisting in purchasing equipment, helping pay for capital improvements as well as other services, accordingto a committee member who is not authorized to speak for the committee.The school representatives will have to meet with Bishop David M. O’Connell and others from the Diocese of Trenton to discuss the school’s plan for its future. However, no date has yet been set.Repeated calls to the diocese seeking comment on the process going for ward were not returned; nor were calls to the Rev. Jeff Kegley, the school’s executive director and St. Mar y’s Parish pastor, and principal Craig Palmer.The school is accepting registration for the coming year and all the grade levels are scheduling for the 2015-16 year, said the committee member.“We’re doing everything we feel is necessary to open Mater Dei Prep’s doors in September,” Jim Shaw said in an email last week. “We are fully committed to the success of Mater Dei Prep and based on our conversations with current and prospective families, we believe the entire MDP community is as positive as we are.”In simple terms, explained Elizabeth Wulfhorst, public relations chairperson for the Seraph’s Fund, “We’re moving from surviving to thriving.”On Feb. 3, Kegley announced that Mater Dei Prep, which was celebrating its 50th anniversary, would have to permanently close its doors this June due to a longstanding budget deficit, unstable enrollment and the announcement late last year that the diocese would discontinue its financial support.Suppor ters, made up of families of current and former students and alumni, rallied, working to raise the money to sustain the school for the coming year and working on an extended plan for the school’s continued viability.The $1 million number was announced as the needed target to continue operations for 2015-16 and to provide the financial groundwork for the future years.— By John Burtonlast_img read more

India, NZ clash in Twenty20 World Cup Super 10 opener

first_imgNAGPUR, India (AP):New Zealand captain Kane Williamson is wary of the threat Indian spinners could pose for his batsmen in their World Twenty20 match yesterday.”The pitch will be on the slow side and perhaps take a little turn,” Williamson said yesterday ahead of the Super 10 opener. “In Indian conditions, we can expect spin to play a big part, and it’s important that we adjust our game accordingly.”The pitch used here for a Test match against South Africa last year was rated as poor by the International Cricket Council (ICC) with the game ending inside three days.The World T20 qualifying games also saw the ball turn. That could magnify the challenge in batting against India’s Ravichandran Ashwin-led spin attack, which also boasts all-rounders Yuvraj Singh and Ravindra Jadeja, part-timer Suresh Raina, and the backup of Harbhajan Singh.New Zealand have the added challenge of adjusting quickly to the format as their last engagement was a Test series against Australia, but Williamson played down this concern.”In international games, you get to change formats consistently,” Williamson said.Hosts India are the favourites to win the tournament but start their campaign against an opposition they have never beaten in four previous meetings, including in the 2007 edition, which India won in South Africa.”I don’t think our previous record has any meaning. We go into the match tomorrow with a clean slate. India is a strong side, and Twenty20 cricket is fickle in nature,” said Williamson, who has match winners of his own such as batsmen Ross Taylor and Martin Guptill and all-rounder Corey Anderson.India’s in-form batsman, Virat Kohli said that the team’s fine recent run gave them a lot of confidence.”We’re pretty confident after winning 10 of 11 games and hope to take that momentum into the World Twenty20,” Kohli said. “This is going to be far more challenging. This is a big event and the whole feeling, vibe, is different.”India’s recent successes include winning the Asia Cup in Bangladesh as well as a 3-0 series victory in Australia. Kohli led the way, scoring 352 runs in eight T20 games at a strike rate of 134 and an average of 117.33, with openers Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan also among the runs.”The middle order has not got too much of an opportunity in recent games. So it becomes our responsibility to get the runs at the top of the order,” Kohli said. “I come in at No. 3, so I have a better chance of getting runs than batsmen to follow. We all understand that.”India and New Zealand are with Australia, Pakistan, and Bangladesh in Group Two. Group One consists of the West Indies, England, South Africa, Sri Lanka, and Afghanistan.- APlast_img read more

Alien Life in Meteorites Claimed

first_imgAfter scrutinizing rare meteorites for over a decade, a NASA astrobiologist decided to go with his announcement: he may have found alien life.  Fox News began his story, “We are not alone in the universe – and alien life forms may have a lot more in common with life on Earth than we had previously thought.  That’s the stunning conclusion one NASA scientist has come to, releasing his groundbreaking revelations in a new study in the March edition of the Journal of Cosmology.”    There are only about nine CI-1 carbonaceous chondrites known.  In the ones Dr. Richard B. Hoover has cracked open and studied, he has found “fossilized remains of micro-organisms not so different from ordinary ones found underfoot – here on earth, that is.”  That’s one of the strange things about this story.  If these are organisms that originated independently of earth, why would some of them be recognizable as “generic species here on earth”?  Another problem is that the samples contain no nitrogen, an essential ingredient in life as we know it.  All amino acids and DNA contain nitrogen.    Hoover tried to be extremely careful with his samples, and expected a hotbed of controversy.  He has invited scrutiny of his work by 100 experts, and wants thousands of scientists around the world to weigh in on its validity.  Some, like David Marais, another NASA astrobiologist, are taking a wait-and-see attitude: “These kinds of claims have been made before, he noted – and found to be false.”  Seth Shostak of the SETI Institute doesn’t rule out the possibility but recognizes the controversial claim will have far-reaching implications.  He speculated that this might support panspermia of some sort: “It would suggest, well, life didn’t really begin on the Earth, it began as the solar system was forming.”  That raises other questions of how and where environments in the early solar system could have been more conducive to life than planet earth.    Rob Sheldon, a colleague of Hoover’s and an advocate of intelligent design, mentioned Hoover last December in his blog response on The Procrustean responding to the arsenic-life claim (12/02/2010).  He indicated that Hoover probably would have expected alien life to be very different biochemically from earth life.    On a different but related story, New Scientist and the BBC News speculated that “Meteorites ‘could have carried nitrogen to Earth’” in the form of ammonia carried on chondrites, chips of asteroids.  Aside from questions left begging about whether these “missing ingredients for life” had anything to do with the origin of life, that story appears contradictory to Hoover’s, who found no nitrogen in his samples.  “If someone can explain,” Hoover said, “how it is possible to have a biological remain that has no nitrogen, or nitrogen below the detect ability limits that I have, in a time period as short as 150 years, then I would be very interested in hearing that.”Is this another claim in the tradition of the Martian meteorite ALH 84001?  Is NASA trying to get more funding (01/07/2005) for astrobiology?  Possibly.  They’ve probably learned how to be more careful by now and give the appearance of honest skeptical inquiry.  In the early stages of controversial announcements, the Marais wait-and-see response is wise.  The best advice is to look carefully at the raw data, check assumptions, and ask the right questions.  The first question is to verify if this really is fossilized living material.  The second is to rule out contamination.  The third is to avoid jumping to conclusions and to consider all the possibilities.    With the Martian meteorite, the similarities to cells were superficial and never widely accepted as anything more than coincidental shapes.  Years after the huge flurry of media hype, after scientists found other ways the shapes could have been generated chemically, the hubbub died down.  Now only a few scientists believe it (12/14/2000, 11/20/2001, 03/18/2002, 05/15/2002, 01/30/2004, 03/23/2006, 09/01/2009).    Maybe this time things will be different.  Hoover seems more cautious than McKay.  What if the majority confirms that this was living material?  Does it mean life evolved in outer space?  No; it could have been created somewhere else, or it may be earth life that got here by a round trip.  Creation scientist Walt Brown has a theory that asteroids and comets were ejected from earth at the time of the Flood, when hyper-pressurized water shot into space from the fountains of the great deep, carrying rocky material from the continental margins with it.  It’s a speculative idea, but it’s one possibility to have life get out to space and back.  As for the Fox News lead-in that “We are not alone in the universe,” good grief; this is about the solar system, not the universe (see extrapolation).    Materialists will undoubtedly hype evolution, but the details revealed so far should be as puzzling to them as to their critics.  No nitrogen, but similar to earth life?  Astrobiologists have long tried to argue that life found elsewhere is bound to be very different from ours, but from the photos, these structures look remarkably similar to known bacteria.  Nothing in creation science or intelligent design requires life only to be found on earth anyway (see initial thoughts by ID advocate Denyse O’Leary on Uncommon Descent).  And why are these structures found only in a very rare class of meteorites, instead of all of them?    Further speculation is unwise till the claim goes through the scrutiny of skeptical scientists.  This commentary should only caution readers that healthy skepticism of spectacular claims is always in order, and to beware of being led down the primrose path by the media to answers without first asking the questions.    Already Fox News’s exclusive story is echoing around the world on other news sources and blogs.  Undoubtedly there will be more to say later about this claim.  Have your Baloney Detector tuned and ready.Update 03/07/2011: Criticisms of the claim are starting to come in from the scientific community and from evolutionists (see Space.com, PhysOrg, and Fox News follow-up story), so don’t get too excited about alien bacteria just yet.  Space.com also posted a gallery of past alleged proofs of alien life.Update 03/08/2011: New Scientist said there is “monster mud-slinging” going on among scientists about this claim.  Jeffrey Bada pointed out that minerals can show “many non-biological artefacts” to confuse the observer.  Alison Olcott Marshall [U of Kansas] said, “Morphology alone isn’t enough; geological context isn’t enough – you need all the pieces.  You need multiple lines of evidence: morphology that is highly reminiscent of biology, a geological context that makes sense and strong chemical evidence.”  New Scientist also hinted that the paper might have been a last gasp for the Journal of Cosmology, a journal deemed dubious by other astrobiologists.  It may go out of business in a few months.  This story is looking like a bright meteor – in and out of public attention in record time.(Visited 11 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
