Billed as another Evening With, fans were treated to two full sets of rock-and-roll originals, covers, and sit-ins from the one-and-only Trey Anastasio. The Phish frontman helped the 12-piece ensemble close out their second set with a pair of covers, “Delta Lady” by Leon Russell, in which he sang lead vocals on, and a 33+ minute “Mountain Jam” for the books.Marking the first time Trucks and Anastasio have collaborated since with the Allman Brothers Band at the 2014 Wanee, the moment was especially savored in the setting of the Beacon Theatre–a venue the Allman Brothers Band had played over 200 times. With the recent passings of Gregg Allman and Butch Trucks, the ABB song was an especially poignant choice. It was also the debut version from Tedeschi Trucks Band, which soared between various versions of the composition–including early Donovan’s “There Is A Mountain” and inspiration from the Grateful Dead and Herbie Mann renditions, as JamBase notes–with an extended “Will The Circle Be Unbroken?” mid-section. Certainly an interesting take on the beloved instrumental, bassist Tim Lefebvre and drummers J.J. Johnson and Tyler Greenwell were each given plentiful space for their individual remarks, morphing the performance into a space-shifting presentation of a song with many legs. While Anastasio has been known to hold back in this shared stage space before, he visibly pushed through to match guitar hero Derek Trucks in what became a patiently-timed, glorious dual between the two. Still, it was obvious who the leader on stage was–understandably, and respectfully–as Trey used the experience to appreciatively soak in the glory of the Tedeschi Trucks Band.Ahead of Trey’s sit-in, the husband-and-wife duo led their machine through an energetic evening of music that, unlike Friday night’s setlist, relied heavily on their original tunes. Timeless favorites “Midnight In Harlem” and “Do I Look Worried” settled hearts amongst raging numbers “Don’t Know What It Means” and “The Storm.” The band has a unique ability to reinvent old tunes in their own way, so covers of Derek and the Dominos, Toots & The Maytals, Johnny Moore’s Three Blazers, George Harrison, The Box Tops, Billy Taylor, and Leon Russell feel as if they could appropriately exist on proper Tedeschi Trucks Band records. Their influences are transcendental to the songwriting of the band, and shine through in their live interpretations night after night. As if its an education for their widespread audience, Derek and Susan continue to deliver the gospel of southern rock, the delta blues, and straight-up soul to their fanbase across the world.Following the unexpected sit-in, Susan Tedeschi returned to the stage with Kofi Burbridge for a heartfelt version of “A Song For You” by Leon Russell. Fans were appreciative of the fact, considering the keyboardist’s recent health scare that took him off the road for the last three months. The band joined the duo to close the final night with their original “Bound For Glory.” Tedeschi Trucks Band has a few weeks off before they return to the road on November 3 with Hard Working Americans. Full tour schedule here.You can watch complete videos of “Delta Lady” and “Mountain Jam” below, courtesy of Marc Millman:last_img read more

New eminent scholar

first_imgEach peanut is a complex mix of its genetic parts. Scott Jackson wants to figure out how the tasty legume’s genes work and help produce a higher yielding, more disease-resistant one. And he’s coming to Georgia to do it.In August, Jackson will join the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences as its newest Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar. He is currently a professor of agronomy at Purdue University.“We have a world-class plant breeding and genetics program, perhaps the best in the world,” said J. Scott Angle, dean and director of the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. “We identified a need in this program and found the top person in this area. We then aggressively pursued Dr. Jackson to move his program to Georgia. I am pleased we were successful, and I know that the economy of Georgia will benefit from his move to our great state.”Jackson’s research focuses heavily on crop genomics. “We’re trying to understand the genome and the genome structure so that we can more efficiently manipulate the genetics of crops to produce better varieties,” he said. “We go where the questions are, and the tools are needed.”He will work in UGA’s Institute of Plant Breeding, Genetics and Genomics and the Crop and Soil Science Department.“We’re really excited to have someone of his caliber working with other research scientists at UGA,” said Terry Hollifield, acting director at the Georgia Seed Development Commission. The commission partially funded the endowment for the eminent scholar position.Jackson’s main reason for coming to UGA “mostly was the faculty there,” he said. “It’s a strong group, an active and growing group… It’s also an opportunity to expand in some areas where I haven’t been working before. In Indiana, peanut isn’t a crop at all. It’s a chance to collaborate with people more closely than I have before.”“We’re hoping his work will help with developing higher yielding, more pest-resistant peanut cultivars,” Hollifield said. “We’re interested in all commodities from horticulture to agronomic crops, but peanuts by far generate the largest amount of royalty dollars for the seed development program.”One of Jackson’s major accomplishments was leading the mapping of the soybean genome.“He will now join the effort in peanut genomics at UGA to identify markers for genes that will enhance the nutritional value and hopefully remove the potential for allergic reactions to peanuts,” said Bob Shulstad, associate dean for research at the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. “Georgia’s leadership in peanut production and expanding production of soybeans, alfalfa and other legumes will be greatly enhanced.”Jackson received his master’s and doctoral degrees in plant breeding and plant genetics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1996 and 1999, respectively.Besides working as a professor of agronomy and serving as the Wickersham Chair of Excellence in Agricultural Research, he is also currently a program officer in the Division of Biological Infrastructure for the National Science Foundation. He is an honorary scientist under the Rural Development Administration for the Republic of Korea and previously served as a consultant for the International Rice Research Institute in the Philippines.He is a fellow and member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and a member of the American Society of Plant Biologists and Genetics Society of America. He has written 73 peer-reviewed journal articles – including the sequencing of the soybean genome and work on rice domestication – 11 book chapters and six non-refereed research publications.Five graduate students, a postdoctoral researcher and a computer programmer will also move with Jackson to UGA.last_img read more

Sanders announces $150,000 financial literacy grant

first_imgSource: Senator Sanders office. BURLINGTON, July 1 Sen. Bernie Sanders called today for a new Financial Product Safety Commission to protect consumers from abusive lenders and also announced a $130,000 federal grant to improve financial literacy for young people in Vermont.Sanders (I-Vt.) was joined at the press conference by Joseph G. Bergeron, president of the Association of Vermont Credit Unions, which will work with local business leaders, educators and volunteers, to teach middle and high school students the importance of financial literacy.“If there is anything that the current financial crisis has taught us it is that we have a responsibility to provide young Vermonters with the tools and the education they need to make sound financial decisions later in life,” Sanders said.  “It is critical that we teach kids how to balance a checkbook, save money, qualify for a mortgage, and understand that if they take out a loan there is no such thing as free and easy money.”  The Obama administration, meanwhile, yesterday sent a detailed proposal to Congress that would establish a Consumer Financial Protection Agency to guard against lending practices like those that contributed to the financial crisis, The Washington Post reported. Sanders is a cosponsor of legislation by Sen. Dick Durbin, the Senate’s No. 2 leader, to create the new consumer commission.“The federal government has a responsibility to protect consumers from unscrupulous, predatory, and deceitful lenders,” Sanders said. “While financial education is important, you should not need a law degree or a Ph.D. to understand the terms of a mortgage or a credit card.”Other proposals by Sanders to reform the financial services industry include a serious investigation into the financial crisis to determine what happened and what we can do to make sure that it never happens again.  He also wants a national usury law to cap credit card interest rates and fees, and he has proposed breaking up big banks like Citigroup, Bank of America, and JP Morgan Chase, and insurance companies like AIG, so taxpayers don’t have to bail them out if they fail again. “If an institution is too big to fail, it is too big to exist,” Sanders said.Another bill by Sanders would make federal regulators use emergency powers to stop speculators on Wall Street from manipulating the price of gasoline, heating oil, and other commodities.  Mounting evidence shows a recent run-up in oil and gas prices has little to do with supply and demand and everything to do with excessive speculation by some of the same Wall Street firms that received the largest taxpayer bail-out in the history of the world. “Reforming Wall Street will not be easy,” Sanders said. “Over the past decade, the banking and insurance industries spent over $5 billion on campaign contributions and lobbying activities. They are spending even more today to prevent Congress from seriously reforming their industries.  It is time that Congress stood up to these big financial interests and for the average American.” last_img read more

CPPD Instructor Selected for Military World Games

first_img An instructor at the Center for Personal and Professional Development (CPPD) Learning Site Pensacola will represent the Navy on the All Armed Forces Indoor Volleyball Team at the 5th CISM (International Military Sport Council) Military World Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from 16-24 July. Lt. Ashley Musser, the captain for the 2011 All Navy Volleyball team, competed in the Armed Forces Volleyball Tournament 6-12 April, aboard Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, N.C. The Navy team did not win the competition but did take second place. Musser was the only member of the Navy team selected as a tournament all star. Her performance during that tournament earned her, along with two other All Navy team members, a spot on the All Armed Forces Indoor Volleyball Team scheduled to compete in the 5th CISM Military World Games. Scheduled to be the largest military sports event ever held in Brazil, the games will pit approximately 4,900 athletes from more than 100 countries competing in 24 sports. The Military World Games is a multi-sport event held every four years, one year before the Olympic Games. After years of CISM organizing 15 to 20 championship games each year, the first Military World Games event was held in 1995 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the end of World War II. The 2011 All Armed Forces Indoor Volleyball Team includes five Army, two Navy, one Coast Guard (who played for the Navy’s team during the tournament), one Marine Corps and three Air Force women. “Being able to work as a team and draw off of everyone’s experience and unique abilities helped us take the silver medal against some very talented competition this year.” As far as playing alongside former competition, she said there’s not usually a problem with it. Musser previously competed on the All Navy Team in 2006 and 2007, and also on the Armed Forces team for the 4th CISM Military World Games in Hyderabad, India. Before her 2006 commissioning from the U.S. Naval Academy, Musser received the 2006 Vice Adm. Lawrence Sword for Women award (awarded every year to the Brigade of Midshipman’s “most athletic female”), First Team All Patriot League honors, and was selected as the Offensive Player of the Year and team MVP during her senior year. She was also nationally ranked in the top 10 in the NCAA Division I for service aces per game in two seasons and set an Academy record for service aces in a career. Good morning, would you please advise how I could be a part of this select group of volleyball players for the military forces. I work in the police and I play volleyball.

Zlatni rat beach got its own website

first_imgPlaža Zlatni Rat je simbol i zaštitni znak Hrvatske, a ponajviše otoka Brača tj. Bola. A sada je ovaj simbol dobio i svoju vlastitu, dvojezičnu web stranicu kao prva plaža u Hrvatskoj, a možda i u Europi sa svojom web stranicom – www.zlatniratbol.com Most visitors come from Germany, followed by Slovenes, Czechs, Croats and Austrians. “Given the situation, we can be satisfied with the visit. Ne bude li većih poteškoća vezanih uz korona virus nadamo se koncem srpnja postići oko 70% prošlogodišnjeg posjeta, a od 24.7, uz već jednu postojeću, očekujemo i uvođenje druge katamaranske linije direktno za Bol. Važno je istaknuti da se pridržavamo svih epidemioloških mjera kako bi se naši gosti osjećali sigurno i ugodno” said the director of the Tourist Board of Bol, Mr. Markito Marinkovic. The special story of Zlatni rat is its natural phenomenon where the beach itself changes its shape and position depending on the wind that blows, waves and sea currents, which form the very top of the beach, which is constantly changing. Interestingly, measurements have shown that the Golden War is getting longer every year.  The aim of the website is to inform guests about the offer on the beach, provide various service information, beach etiquette, as well as real-time weather forecasts, but also the related offer of the destination Bol. center_img Tourist workers in Bol currently achieve about 50% of last year’s tourist traffic, and they hope to be at about 70% of last year’s visit by the end of July. Do Brača trenutno prometuje dvanaest dnevnih trajektnih linija Split – Supetar i jedna katamaranska linija Split – Bol, a dva puta tjedno (utorkom i subotom) Zagreb je povezan s Bračem avionskom linijom. Početkom kolovoza planira se uvođenje i avionske linije iz  Frankfurta do Brača, koja bi bila aktivna do 23.10.

APG, PGGM to launch sustainable investing platform for asset owners

first_imgDutch asset managers APG and PGGM are developing an artificial intelligence (AI) based asset owner platform to assess potential “sustainable development investments” (SDIs).They said that the vehicle – to be launched in the first quarter next year – would offer insight into how investable companies contribute to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).The asset managers said their goal was to achieve a critical mass of asset owners investing in companies contributing positively to the SDGs.The platform is to use “tailor-made cutting-edge technology”, developed by APG, which combines detailed SDI taxonomy with AI to enable investors to assess approximately 10,000 listed investments for their contribution to the SDGs, they said. Since APG and PGGM published an SDG taxonomy in 2017 , they have translated it into an SDI classification for individual listed companies, supported by additional in-depth research. It will work with Entis, a technology subsidiary of APG, to analyse data and identify SDIs aimed, for example, at solving water scarcity, providing decent healthcare, ending poverty and protecting the environment.APG and PGGM – which manage more than €700bn of pension fund assets between them – said the SDI Asset Owner Platform would enable asset owners to use a common definition, taxonomy and data source for making sustainable investments.APG – the asset manager of the civil service scheme ABP – started developing the AI-based approach in 2016, in order to serve its clients’ ambitions on sustainable investing. ABP aims to allocate €58bn to sustainable investments by next year.“We would like our peers to join us on this platform,” said Claudia Kruse, managing director and head of APG’s team for global responsible investment and governance.center_img The two companies said the platform would also improve engagement with companies and stakeholders “as asset owners will speak with companies with one voice, and can provide stakeholders with comparable reports on how they invest in and contribute to the SDGs”.Hans op ‘t Veld, PGGM’s head of responsible investment, said the platform would provide further standardisation and efficiency for PGGM’s sustainable investment as well as for companies to report on their contribution to the SDGs.David Russell, head of responsible investment at the UK’s Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS), said that the pension fund was looking forward to working with the SDI Asset Owner Platform in assessing its exposure to and support for the SDGs.Cbus, Australia’s leading scheme for the construction sector, said it “encouraged initiatives that contributed to translating the SDGs into investable opportunities”.Further readingPRI in Person: Danone CFO calls for new investor mindset about value Investors’ approach to value creation could be a drag on efforts to achieve global sustainable development goals, says Cécile CabanisAPG, PGGM set out investment routes to UN development goals Two of Europe’s largest investment managers identified investment opportunities linked to 13 of the UN’s 17 SDGs, in work published in 2017last_img read more
