Watch The Daze Between Band’s All-Star Tribute To Butch Trucks & Col. Bruce During Jazz Fest 2017

first_imgIf you’ll be in New Orleans For Jazz Fest, don’t miss this year’s Daze Between Band featuring Eric Krasno (Soulive/Lettuce), Dave Schools (Widespread Panic), and Duane Trucks (Widespread Panic), with special guests John Medeski and Tom Hamilton at One Eyed Jacks (5/2) and Marcus King and DeShawn “D’Vibes” Alexander at The Howlin’ Wolf (5/3).

Perhaps the most talked-about, star-studded late-night shows during the 2017 Jazz Fest-ivities was the “Daze Between Band.” The mid-week show, led by Eric Krasno (Soulive/Lettuce), took One Eyed Jacks by storm with a jam-packed lineup that included Oteil Burbridge (Dead & Company), Duane Trucks (Widespread Panic), Danny Louis (Gov’t Mule), Scott Metzger (Joe Russo’s Almost Dead), Ike Stubblefield, Lyle Divinsky (The Motet), Nate Werth (Snarky Puppy), Rashawn Ross (Dave Matthews Band), and D Vibes (Eric Krasno Band).Originally, Krasno had planned for the musical direction to honor the memory of the late Butch Trucks, who died early in the year. However, with the passing of the legendary Col. Bruce Hampton on the previous Monday, the show found its emotional impetus significantly magnified. This brought fellow collaborators Jeff Sipe (Aquarium Rescue Unit) and Warren Haynes (Allman Brothers Band) to the scene with heavy hearts, but ready for some serious spiritual musical healing.The night quickly transformed into a tribute to both Butch Trucks and Colonel Bruce Hampton, with the music of the Allman Brothers Band and the Grateful Dead to lead the way. All those in attendance could feel the magnitude of the emotions projected from the stage and returned an inimitable energy to help heal the wounds of those affected by two great losses. On this night, music was the answer.Stranger Than Fiction: The Cosmic Curtain Call Of Col. Bruce HamptonThe first set opened with two Allman Brothers classics, “Trouble No More” and “Dreams” followed by the Dead’s “Mr. Charlie.” From there, Warren Haynes joined the all-star lineup for a ripping performance of “Scarlet Begonias > Fire On The Mountain,” into “Whipping Post” and “Mountain Jam” to close the set. The second set opened with the Dead’s “West LA Fadeaway,” into ABB’s “Hot ‘Lanta.” Oteil Burbridge was certainly within his element, as the former bassist of the Allman Brothers and the current for Dead & Company, leading the way for “Eyes of the World” and “Elizabeth Reed.”“Sugaree” turned into a triumphant “Lovelight,” which, of course, was the song that featured Haynes, Sipe, and Trucks on stage at Col. Bruce’s final performance only a few days prior. Emotions ran high, matching the cosmic certainties that were lifted with the passing of Hampton during his final bow. When the band returned to the stage, turning close to 5 a.m., they closed the show with a “Hey Pocky Way” encore.Setlist: Daze Between Band | One Eyed Jacks | New Orleans, LA | 5/3/17Set One: Trouble No More, Dreams, Mr. Charlie, Scarlet Begonias > Fire On The Mountain, Whipping Post, Mountain JamSet Two: West LA Fadeaway, Hot ‘Lanta, Eyes Of The World, Elizabeth Reed, Sugaree, LovelightEncore: Hey Pocky WayVideographer John Peckham was on site with a multi-cam setup, plugged into the soundboard.

Health officials urge precautions against mosquito-borne diseases

first_imgStatewide — As if worrying about a global pandemic isn’t enough, state health officials are urging Indiana residents to take steps to protect themselves from mosquito bites as West Nile virus activity is detected in mosquitoes in multiple locations around the state.As of August 6, mosquitoes in Allen, Marion, and St. Joseph counties have tested positive for the West Nile virus. No human cases of West Nile virus disease have been detected in 2020; however, the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) expects to see increased West Nile activity throughout the state as the mosquito season progresses.State health officials recommend the following preventive measures:• Avoid being outdoors when mosquitoes are active (especially late afternoon, dusk to dawn, and early morning);• Apply an EPA-registered insect repellent containing DEET, picaridin, IR3535, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or para-menthane-diol to clothes and exposed skin;• Cover exposed skin by wearing a hat, long sleeves, and long pants in places where mosquitoes are especially active, such as wooded areas;• Install or repair screens on windows and doors to keep mosquitoes out of the home.last_img read more

Tottenham transfer news: Roma ready to fight Spurs for £25m-rated Belgian star

first_img1 Axel Witsel in action for Roma Roma are planning to hijack Tottenham’s pursuit of Zenit St Petersburg star Axel Witsel.Reports earlier this week claimed Spurs have already tabled a £20m bid for the Belgian midfielder, but Zenit are no closer to sanctioning the move.And now, according to Corriere dello Sport, Roma are planning to match Tottenham’s offer after manager Luciano Spalletti told the club’s directors to make the playmaker their top transfer target.With an array of Belgian internationals already at the club, Tottenham are confident they can lure Witsel to north London to link up with his compatriots and will be prepared to up their offer if their first bid doesn’t get accepted.Zenit are understood to be holding out for around £25m for the 27-year-old, which may lead to Spurs and Roma waiting until after Euro 2016 before making a concrete decision on whether to match the Russian club’s valuation of the player.last_img read more

Inspiring Life Motivates Designers

first_imgHere’s the latest collection of bio-inspired designs brought to you by plants, animals, and cells.Speedy snail insulin (PhysOrg): We think of snails as among the slowest of animals, but this article says of “Snail’s speedy insulin: Bio-inspired insulin may act three times faster than current products.” The venom of cone snails has inspired a new insulin injection that works in 5 minutes instead of the usual 15. “To have something that has already been evolved—that’s a huge advantage,” the researcher stated.Gecko tires (Science Daily): Want to see “nature’s designs at work on the highways”? Imagine applying the principles of gecko toe adhesion where the rubber meets the road. NSF-funded researchers at Lehigh University, working with Michelin Tires, think their bio-inspired tire design will reach the sweet spot between traction, tire life and fuel efficiency. “Improving one quality almost always degrades another” in previous designs, but toes of geckos, grasshoppers and frogs are giving them ideas to achieve more of all three. “The results are promising.”Drug fishing (PhysOrg): Or is this “fish drugging”? This article says that “Tiny robot ‘nano-fish’ may one day deliver drugs inside the body.” Researchers in China and California are designing “innovative robotic devices, inspired by physicomechanical designs evolved in fish” but this time at the nano/micro scale. See also New Scientist‘s report on this bio-inspired technology that promises “drug guided missiles.”Seagull drones (The Conversation): Don’t get mad at the seagulls that try to swipe your sandwich. They’re helping engineers design flight paths to navigate city centers, this article says. Watch the video clip of their flight paths at the ocean, where they use updrafts efficiently to fly without flapping.So next time you are feeling ill-disposed towards gulls soaring in city spaces, possibly shielding your ice-creams as you stroll along the seafront, stop a moment to appreciate the complex decisions that these feathered pilots are making, second by second, as they respond to their continually changing aerial environment, in ways that engineers can, for now, only dream of.Squid trousers (Live Science): Those darn holes in the jeans; they’re not always fashionable. How would you like self-healing trousers? Squid are inspiring self-repairing clothing coatings, this article says, at the US Naval Research Laboratory. Some day, “clothes could fix their own rips with the help of coatings made of squid proteins, according to a new study.” Proteins in the teeth on the suction cups of squid are the key. Add this kind of material to the washer and dryer, and tears could heal themselves.Volvox chemotherapy (Science Daily): Claiming that this simple multicellular organism “evolved from self-assembly of individual cells,” this article nonetheless takes inspiration from that principle to design a new way of treating cancer. “Drawing from the lessons of evolution, they designed anti-cancer molecules that can self-assemble with each other into a complex structure through weak supramolecular interactions.” Go figure; if it works, cancer patients will no doubt credit the design, not the evolutionary tale.Cilia sensor (Nature Scientific Reports): Inspired by the coordinated motions of hair-cell bundles in the ear, engineers from three continents “report the development of a new class of miniature all-polymer flow sensors that closely mimic the intricate morphology of the mechanosensory ciliary bundles in biological hair cells.” The prototype shows high sensing performance. What can they do with it? “These self-powered, sensitive, flexible, biocompatibale [sic] and miniaturized sensors can find extensive applications in navigation and maneuvering of underwater robots, artificial hearing systems, biomedical and microfluidic devices.”Dragon bicycles (Science Daily): Athletes are always looking for lightweight yet strong materials. The dragon tree has vascular bundles with both properties, as well as the ability to resist tension and cushion compressive stress. Engineers in Germany think that inspiration from that design will have multiple innovations in everything from bicycle frames to architectural support structures to automobile bodies.Cricket hearing aids (The Conversation): Why does Rob Malkin at the University of Bristol show a video of crickets chirping in his article? He wants to show how their vibrating wings introduce a principle for use in “the future of hearing aids.” For such small creatures, they put out a lot of sound. He gives the credit to Darwin:The human ear is a miracle of mechanical evolution. It allows us to hear an astonishing range of sounds and to communicate and navigate in the world. It’s also easy to damage and difficult to repair. Hearing aids are still large, uncomfortable and as yet unable to deliver the rich and wonderful sounds we take for granted. Yet there may be a new way for us to replace damaged hearing from an unlikely source – the insect world.What’s new in artificial photosynthesis?  Mimicking the way plants capture sunlight is a long-standing dream for engineers. This “pivotal biological reaction on the planet,” Science Daily says, consists of two reactions: splitting water and “fixing” carbon dioxide into simple sugars. Scientists at the University of Southampton “have reengineered the fundamental process of photosynthesis to power useful chemical reactions that could be used to produce biofuels, pharmaceuticals and fine chemicals.” But they’re only part way there; they speak of applications in future tense.Meanwhile, German scientists have made progress in splitting water with light. PhysOrg shows how they have designed the “first practical design for photoelectrochemical water splitting” using a self-contained solar cell. Details are published in the open-access journal Nature Communications. Their concept, they believe, could be upscaled to large applications, and “may be an important contribution towards the large-scale application of artificial photosynthesis.”Lignin liberators (PhysOrg): Lignin, the molecule that makes plant cell walls stiff, is a high-energy molecule that could produce efficient biofuel—that is, if scientists could figure out how to crack it open. Researchers at Sandia Labs tried a new approach; “For inspiration on how to break down lignin, the researchers looked to nature.” They found a bacterium that knows the secret. “Now that we know how to begin deriving value from lignin, a vast resource opens up,” they say.Final story: An inspiring mix of human and machine comes to life in PhysOrg‘s article on the Paralympics. Watch how engineers have been designing better wheelchairs, bicycles and prosthetic limbs so that great athletes with disabilities can celebrate their abilities.In the end, though, desire and muscle power, not fancy equipment, makes champions, she said.“You still have to have an engine,” she [Jamie Whitmore, bicyclist paralyzed from cancer] said with a smile. “You can’t sit on a couch and expect to win.”The athletes say that the prostheses, which are only poor substitutes for the real biological human parts, only provide gains of fractions of a second. The human element is the real inspiration, for both athletes and sports fans. All the more so when the athletes have had to overcome huge challenges, both mental and physical, not faced by the regular Olympic participants.Biomimetics serves up delicious soup of innovative designs inspired by life. The only thing Darwin supplies is the fly. Waiter! (Visited 25 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Chelsea target Serie A strikers duo for January transfer window

first_imgMaurizio Sarri intends to reinforce his attacking department in January as Chelsea aim to challenge Manchester City, Tottenham, and Liverpool for the Premier League titleThe Blues have aggregated 28 points after the opening 13 EPL fixtures, as they currently trail the Citizens by seven points.However, it is evident Eden Hazard, Willian, and Pedro lack a prolific goalscorer in the final third because both Morata and Giroud failed to live up to expectations this campaign.The Spaniard and the Frenchman have scored six goals altogether, while Hazard notched seven goals on his own. Therefore, Sarri became aware he needs to land a striker who can guarantee at least ten goals in the second half of the season.Maurizio Sarri, JuventusMaurizio Sarri satisfied despite Juventus’ draw at Fiorentina Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Maurizio Sarri was satisfied with Juventus’ performance on Saturday afternoon after finishing a tough game at Fiorentina 0-0.According to the Daily Mail, the Pensioners have identified the Serie A duo, Mauro Icardi and Krzysztof Piatek, the top targets for the January transfer window.Considering the Nerazzurri price their captain at staggering £97.5m, Genoa’s wonder seems to be a more feasible solution.Although it is still uncertain how much would the Liguria-based outfit ask for their headline performer, Piatek’s market value is currently set at £30m.The 23-year-old striker has bagged 13 goals in ten top-flight outings for the Griffin, which has earned him his first Poland national team call-up.last_img read more
