On Tuesday night, July 31st, Phish made their way to Austin, Texas for a one-off performance at Austin360 Amphitheatre. The clear centerpiece of the band’s lone summer 2018 stop in the Lone Star State came in the opening slot of the second set, as the band took “Everything’s Right” on a thrilling improvisational ride.The relatively new song, debuted by Trey Anastasio Band on 4/14/17 at The Capitol Theatre and by Phish a few months later at their summer opener in Chicago on 7/14/17, has made a few solid outings during the band’s ongoing 2018 summer tour. However, Phish’s Austin version of “Everything’s Right”—their 7th rendition of the tune since its pre-Dozen debut last year—easily eclipsed the previous 6 as the deepest and most interesting to date.Over the course of the jam’s nearly 20 minutes, the band explored a number of major-key spaces, briefly hinting at a segue into “What’s The Use?” before continuing to forge ahead, blazing to a peak and, finally, dropping back into the song’s closing refrain before moving into “Down With Disease”.Until now, fans following along from home have had to settle for LivePhish audio of the Austin “Everything’s Right”, as it came during one of the handful of non-webcast shows this summer. However, today, Phish has shared a pro-shot video of the standout jam, so people everywhere can enjoy it in all its glory, with Chris Kuroda‘s mesmerizing light rig as a backdrop. Hit play.

Disney is suing the Orange County property appraiser over 2019 tax assessments for its theme parks, resorts, employee buildings, as well as other structures. The company has filed similar lawsuits in past years.According to The Orlando Sentinel, Property Appraiser Rick Singh says the Disney complex has been undervalued for many years. However, Disney says it is now challenging errors in the assessments. Walt Disney World is telling one Central Florida county that property taxes do not work like “magic.” The Disney lawsuits explain that Singh listed the assessed value for the Magic Kingdom, which is the world’s busiest theme park, at $504 million. In addition, Epcot’s value was set at about $539 million.Meanwhile, Hollywood Studios’ value was assessed at nearly $394 million while Animal Kingdom is worth $435 million.Disney World has been closed since March 15 due to the coronavirus pandemic, and is planning a phased reopening starting July 11.
From left, Jamaica’s Kemar Bailey-Cole, Jamaica’s Usain Bolt, USA’s Justin Gatlin, and Jamaica’s Nickel Ashmeade compete in the Men’s 100-meter final at the World Athletics Championships in the Luzhniki stadium in Moscow, Russia, Sunday, Aug. 11, 2013. (AP Photo/Anja Niedringhaus) by Pat GrahamAP Sports Writer MOSCOW (AP) — His legs were hurting, the rain was pouring and he was trailing late in the race.Doesn’t matter. This is Usain Bolt.And nothing gets in the way of him and first place, especially when he’s driven as he was Sunday night in the 100-meter final at the world championships.Bolt blew by Justin Gatlin with about 30 meters to go and never glanced back. He also didn’t even crack a smile when he crossed the finish line because this took a lot more work than the world’s fastest sprinter usually needs.Gatlin was second and Bolt’s Jamaican teammate Nesta Carter took third.Of all Bolt’s titles, this one will have a special meaning, considering he false-started two years ago in the final to lose his crown.Now, it’s his again.“It’s always great to get back your title,” said Bolt, who won in 9.77 seconds. “I’m happy with myself I got it done.”Like Bolt, Brittney Reese and Ashton Eaton were just as dominant. Reese won her third straight long jump gold, while Eaton now owns the world and Olympic decathlon titles.Many of Bolt’s top rivals were missing. Gone were Tyson Gay (doping offense) and Jamaican teammate Yohan Blake, who was the reigning champion but skipped the worlds because of an injured hamstring.Shortly after the race, Bolt sauntered around the track with his country’s flag tied around his neck like a cape. These days, he has to be the Superman of his sport. Given all the recent doping scandals, track needs someone to save the day.For now, he will settle for blowing away the dark cloud over his country, a proud sprinting nation. Some of Jamaica’s most decorated sprinters have taken a fall: Asafa Powell, Sherone Simpson and Veronica Campbell-Brown all tested positive for a banned substance and weren’t at the worlds.“I’m just doing my part by running fast, winning titles and letting the world know you can do it clean,” Bolt said. “My focus is to continue doing what I do.”And that means running fast times, even on a drenched track.What started as a steady drizzle turned into a downpour just before the gun sounded. So much so that Bolt clowned around when he was introduced to the crowd, pretending to open an umbrella.Really, though, rain doesn’t bother him. Not in the least.Neither does anything else, like falling behind early. He knew he might trail Gatlin at the halfway mark. Bolt has never been a good starter and may have been extra cautious considering what happened in South Korea two years ago.In the lane next to him, Gatlin got off to a great start and thought he might have enough in the tank to beat Bolt, just as he did two months ago in Rome.“Then I saw these long legs coming up on my right side,” Gatlin said. “He’s great. He’s just great.”These two aren’t exactly the best of friends, but after the race, Gatlin congratulated Bolt, who had some kind words in return.“For him to say to me, ‘Hey, you’re the guy who pushes me to go even faster.’ I’m honored in that,” Gatlin said. “But I thought I had it for a second.”Only this is Bolt, the best finisher around. He sniffed the finish line and turned on the turbo jets. He did have to labor hard, though, grimacing as he crossed the line. Some of that may have been due to his legs, which he said were sore.Even at less than 100 percent, Bolt is still downright difficult to beat.“I wanted to run faster, but after the semifinals my legs didn’t feel up to it,” Bolt said. “Don’t know what happened. I’m going to get it worked on. Hopefully I won’t have this problem in the 200 meters. Overall, it was a good race.”Mike Rodgers tried to get inside the head of Bolt after their semifinal matchup, staring up at the tall sprinter. Bolt got out to a big lead in that race earlier in the event and began loafing toward the finish line. Rodgers didn’t particularly care for that.“He thought he was going to slow down, like he could play with everybody,” said Rodgers, who wound up sixth in the final. “I guess he knows he can’t.”Perhaps.Bolt still won convincingly — once he got up to full stride, that is.“I never look at things as easy. I put in hard work,” Bolt said. “That’s why I’m a champion. I keep pushing myself as a champion, no matter what. I push myself because that’s what it takes.”In other finals, Olympic champion Sandra Perkovic of Croatia won the discus, Aleksandr Ivanov of Russia captured the men’s 20-kilometer walk and Tirunesh Dibaba of Ethiopia dominated the 10,000.Then there’s Reese and Eaton, who followed their Olympic gold medals with world titles just like Bolt.“It was the only thing I had left on my list to do,” Eaton said. “Now I have done everything there is to do in the multi-events.”The morning session featured few surprises. The Americans were in solid position for a medals sweep in the 110-meter hurdles, with defending champion Jason Richardson, Olympic gold medalist Aries Merritt, Ryan Wilson and the season’s fastest man, David Oliver, all cruising through their heats.In the opening round of the women’s 100, English Gardner had the top time of 10.94 seconds and will be a favorite in the final.American teen Mary Cain made up ground late in the race to move on in the 1,500 meters and 2008 Olympic gold medalist LaShawn Merritt posted the top time in the 400.But this night belonged Bolt, fitting with lightning flashing overhead before his race.“You never go into a race worried,” he said. “You always got to be confident in yourself. That’s what I was.”

FINNEGANS WAKE ROLLS LATE TO TAKE GRADE II, $200,000 SAN GABRIEL STAKES BY ONE LENGTH UNDER ESPINOZA; MILLER-TRAINED VET GETS 1 1/8 MILES ON TURF IN 1:48.38 & NOTCHES HIS SECOND STAKES WIN IN-A-ROW
MASSIVE PICK 5 CARRYOVER OF $392,388 & PICK SIX CARRYOVER OF $87,422 INTO SUNDAY, TOTAL POOLS ON SUNDAY EXPECTED TO EXCEED $2 MILLION & $500,000, RESPECTIVELY ARCADIA, Calif. (Jan. 3, 2015)–Ridden patiently by Victor Espinoza, long-fused Finnegans Wake wheeled five-wide turning for home and bounded to a one length win in Saturday’s Grade II, $200,000 San Gabriel Stakes, getting 1 1/8 miles on turf in 1:48.38. Trained by Peter Miller, the 6-year-old Kentucky-bred horse by Powerscourt notched his second consecutive stakes win, as he came off a neck victory in the Grade II, 1 ½ miles Hollywood Turf Cup at Del Mar Nov. 27.“I thought today was going to be too short for him, but obviously it wasn’t,” said Espinoza. “He’s getting good. I thought they would go slower up front, but there was still a good pace. I wanted to be closer to the front, but not too close.“He was a little confused because of (the shorter distance) so I think he sat back further than usual because of that. He went nice and comfortably which worked out well, but I had to encourage him a bit to get into the race. I had to ask him early because he’s big and he doesn’t have a ton of speed.”Owned by Donegal Racing and Rockingham Ranch, Finnegans Wake, who prevailed in a field of eight older horses, improved his overall race record to 26-5-3-3, and with the winner’s share of $120,000, increased his earnings to $945,375.“He eats well and he’s been training very well, so I felt like he would run his race,” said Miller. “Whether he could get up going a mile and an eighth was the big question, Victor gave him a super ride.“We’ll look at all our options including maybe even Dubai. The horse trains well on dirt and he ran well in the Clark (Grade I, 1 1/8 miles at Churchill Downs on Nov. 29, 2013), so perhaps even the Santa Anita Handicap (Grade I, 1 ¼ miles on March 7). I don’t know. I’ve got to get with the owners, enjoy this for now and maybe next week set up a game plan.”Fractions on the race, which were set by eventual last place finisher Edge of Reality, were 24.60, 48.80, 1:12.52 and 1:36.65.Ridden by Drayden Van Dyke, runner-up Patrioticandproud was inside the winner into and around the far turn, finally got out a furlong from home and was gaining ground late to finish three quarters of a lengths in front of Power Ped. Off at 13-1, Patrioticandproud paid $11.20 and $5.20.“It got a little congested turning for home so I had to wait for a hole to open up,” said Van Dyke, who is considered a front-runner to be voted America’s Eclipse Award winning Apprentice Jockey for 2014. “One never did, so I had to go outside the winner eventually. I think if I could have let him get a run under him a bit sooner it would have been closer. I think it would have been a horse race for sure, but it didn’t happen.”Off at 26-1, Power Ped, with Tyler Baze up, paid $7.00 to show.With longshots the order of the day on Saturday, there is a massive carryover into Sunday’s 50 cent Pick 5 of $392,388, and the expectation that Sunday’s total Pick 5 pool will exceed $2 million. There is also a Pick Six carryover of $87,422, and it’s expected the total Pick Six pool on Sunday will exceed $500,000.First post time for a nine-race card Sunday is at 12:30 p.m. The Pick 5 is comprised of the first five races and the Pick Six covers the final six on the program. Admission gates open at 10:30 a.m.
