Trey Anastasio Band Wraps 4-Night Run With Explosive Brooklyn Bowl Finale [Photo/Video]

first_imgTrey Anastasio Band continued their extended weekend run on Monday with their second and final performance at Brooklyn Bowl in Brooklyn, NY. One of the smaller rooms in which you’ll see TAB play, the Bowl was packed to the brim when Trey Anastasio‘s eight-piece solo outfit took the stage at the beloved concert venue/bowling alley for just the third time ever.Trey and company opened up the first set with “Blaze On”, which TAB debuted three nights prior at Anastasio’s Me & My Mind premiere and featured his fellow Phish bandmate Page McConnell. Moving out of the show-opening “Blaze On”, TAB offered up a hearty helping of setlist staples, including “Alive Again”, “Liquid Time”, “Burlap Sack and Pumps”, “Night Speaks to a Woman”, “Curlew’s Call”, and “Dark and Down”. TAB brought their first set to a close with “First Tube”, a tune that he debuted in 1998 with his 8 Foot Florescent Tubes one-off project at Burlington, VT’s Higher Ground.Following a brief setbreak, Trey and his cohorts returned to the stage to open up their second set with “Money, Love and Change”, highlighted by some ferocious guitar work from Anastasio. “Last Tube” and “Speak To Me” were up next, followed by “The Land Of Nod”, last played by TAB in 2017. The set continued with “Alaska” smoothly sliding into “In Rounds” before the band brought the set to a close with a silky-smooth pairing of “Shine” into “Rise/Come Together”. Unlike the previous night, where Trey emerged solo with his acoustic guitar, Trey Anastasio Band returned in full for their encore with a two-song offering of “Drifting” and “Ghost”.Next up for Trey Anastasio Band is a four-night run of shows throughout the Southeast, including performances in St. Petersburg, St. Augustine, and Atlanta.

Canada to Build Haiti Police Headquarters

first_img Canada will build a new headquarters for Haiti’s national police after the original was destroyed in the January 12 earthquake, Foreign Minister Lawrence Cannon announced on 4 November. The 9.5-million dollar construction project will “augment the capability of Haiti’s national police to coordinate their daily activities” such as stemming “violence, smuggling and human trafficking,” he told a press conference. “All Haitians will benefit from improved security,” the minister added. Cannon also announced 1.3 million dollars in funding to teach Haiti’s 7,000 policemen first aid over the next two years. Canadian police have been helping to train Haiti’s police since 1993. Their numbers rose to 134 after the earthquake from 90. At least 250,000 people were killed in January’s devastating 7.0 earthquake which flattened much of the capital Port-au-Prince. Haiti is now also struggling to contain an outbreak of cholera which hit last month and has already claimed more than 440 lives and sickened almost 6,800 people.

‘Great Gatsby’ Book Sales Soar as Film Debut Nears

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York ‘The Great Gatsby,’ F. Scott Fitzgerald’s iconic novel, which is considered by many an American masterpiece.When a film or television adaption of a popular novel hits screens, book sales frequently experience a spike, breathing new life into fading titles and allowing more acclaimed pieces to indulge in the brief hysteria brought on by Hollywood’s obsession to recreate—many times unsuccessfully—a beloved bestseller.But what happens when the piece of literature is one of the great American novels that’s graced bestseller lists for more than eight decades and has been read by millions—whether as required reading at a high school or college, or simply for leisure—before there was any hint of a new film? Are there still people out there clamoring to get their hands on the paperback or e-book?If the novel is F. Scott Fitzgerald’s nearly century-old The Great Gatsby, set on Long Island, then the answer is a resounding “yes.”“Historically, when a movie based on a book comes out we usually see a jump in the sales of the book,” Sara Nelson, editorial director of books and Kindle at Amazon.com, said in an email. “However, with The Great Gatsby we’ve seen a much larger jump than we usually see.”To put Gatsby’s recurring dominance over the book publishing world in perspective, print books sales have quadrupled compared to what they were last April on Amazon.com. Its Kindle sales are also skyrocketing. Amazon’s e-book sales are 10 times what they were this time last year, Nelson said. As of Thursday, The Great Gatsby was the No. 1 selling book on Amazon.com and No. 3 on Kindle’s bestseller list.Brick and mortar retailers, such as Barnes & Noble and local independent bookstores, can also testify to Gatsby’s renewed hot streak. Apparently, people just can’t get enough of the opulence and lavish lifestyle of the Roaring ’20s that Fitzgerald depicts in the 88-year-old novel.“This is a perennial bestseller without the movie attention, but the attention has helped sales significantly,” Patricia Bostelman, vice president of marketing for Barnes & Noble, said in a statement.Gatsby is doing so well that Huntington’s Book Revue has had to increase the number of copies it sells, said one worker who picked up the phone at the shop.At The Dolphin Bookshop, a Port Washington staple, the enthusiasm for the new film, featuring Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby and Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan, is palpable.“Sales have picked up,” said Dolphin staffer Andrea Kaminsky, who just moments earlier sold the book to a local book club eager to read the novel in anticipation of the film. “It is talked about a little more than usual.”Long Islanders are also relishing in pre-release celebration of the film because the novel is set in their backyards. The story plays out on LI’s Gold Coast and it is said that a once-ritzy Sands Point mansion that has since been razed was the inspiration for the book. Baz Luhrmann, the movie’s director, is expected to highlight a red carpet event before a pre-release screening in Port Washington next Wednesday. The movie is set to be released Friday, May 10.“The thought that it’s right here, this is where it happened,” adds to the excitement, said Kaminsky, adding that a customer came into the store and proclaimed, “We’re in Gatsby country!”Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan pictured in the film adaptation of “The Great Gatsby.” (Photo: Warner Bros.)Book sellers are also looking to cash in on the movie’s buzz by introducing a redesigned movie tie-in version of the book featuring DiCaprio and other cast members on the cover. It will no doubt add to the book’s already impressive showing on bestseller lists, but not even one of Hollywood’s most decorated actors can compete with the original Gatsby and its iconic cover.“Currently, the traditional paperback edition of the book is outselling the movie tie-in edition by a wide margin,” Amazon’s Nelson said.So what is it about Gatsby, widely considered Fitzgerald’s best work, that has made it such an American classic?“The most obvious thing, it may sound really simplistic, it’s one of the most beautifully written novels in existence,” said Paula Uruburu, professor of literature and film at Hofstra University.“It captures really the spirit of America at its most giddy moment in the ‘20s,” she continued. “In some ways it’s interesting because it came out at of such a specific period but it’s really timeless because it’s so much about American culture and human nature, too.”“Gatsby represents the materialism and the idealism of the American dream,” added her colleague, Scott Harshbarger, associate professor of English at Hofstra. “He’s a self-made man who adopts an opulent lifestyle and throws lavish parties all to pursue a romantic ideal conceived in his youth. That the story ends tragically suggests that there is something hollow about the American dream, even though the tragedy itself continues to compel and inspire.”If the novel’s history of success is any indication, Luhrmann’s film should rake in millions at the box office, simply by riding the book’s coattails.Uruburu can’t get enough Gatsby. She has taught the novel at Hofstra for more than 20 years and she’s never grown tired of it.“I never do,” she said with a laugh.last_img read more

Government Shutdown Could Stall Long Island Sandy Recovery

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Congressional Republican leaders’ government shutdown Tuesday stemming from their refusal to fund the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, could threaten—among many other things—Long Island’s recovery from Superstorm Sandy, officials said.At risk is the Fire Island to Montauk Point storm mitigation plan, a $700-million project a half-century in the works to rebuild dunes on the barrier island and raise thousands of flood-prone South Shore LI homes. The project, stalled for decades by funding concerns, was finally slated to begin this winter with Sandy aid backing.“The District could experience some impacts to staffing in general that could potentially lead to impacts to ongoing work depending on how long the partial shutdown continues, regardless of the work’s funding status,” said Chris Gardner, a spokesman for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the agency leading the effort.He added that in the meantime, plans are moving ahead on the project, known as FIMP, which is already funded through supplemental funds, and is not subject to the direct impacts of the lapsed federal budget.“Work on FIMP and other previously funded projects and studies should continue moving forward through the current partial government shutdown,” Gardner added.LI federal workers furloughed for the shutdown include IRS employees, nearly all of the 218 “dual status” technicians at the 106th Rescue Wing at Gabreski Air Base in Westhampton and National Park Service rangers at Sagamore Hill and the Fire Island National Seashore.Open for business were the U.S. Postal Service, U.S. District Court in Central Islip, federal law enforcement agencies, the U.S. Customs and Immigration Service field office in Holtsville and Calverton National Cemetery, which is funded through Oct. 15. Social Security is open to handle urgent issues such as appeals, but applications for a social security number and to replace a social security card will not be processed.Scores of New Yorkers signed up at the state’s health benefit exchange, both the online insurance plan marketplace and at offices in Hauppauge and beyond LI, despite the government shutdown.President Barack Obama pleaded with congressional leaders, namely Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) who rallied Republicans to block the funding, to negotiate a settlement to the stalemate before the shutdown went into effect at midnight Tuesday. LI lawmakers were equally frustrated, including Rep. Peter King (R-Seaford), who tried to rally moderate Republicans in the House of Representatives to resolve the shutdown before the deadline on Monday.“My GOP colleagues should not demand a ransom for simply fulfilling their responsibilities,” Rep. Tim Bishop (D-Southampton). “That is not negotiating or governing in good faith.”last_img read more

How to choose a credit union after college

first_imgAfter college your priorities change, from losing that freshman 15 to finding a job and making a five-year plan. Have you considered whether your bank falls in line with your new goals? One of your first “real world” decisions will be choosing the right financial institution for your needs.Switch or stay?You’ve grown up, and so, too, must your bank account. Most student accounts come with an age limit or will expire four or five years after they were opened. Once you no longer qualify, most banks and credit unions will roll your student version into a standard account. They’ll want to make the transition as smooth as possible so that you don’t leave. But go for clarity over convenience, because non-student accounts can come with new requirements — and fees. And besides, you might want more perks or features.If you’re happy where you are, and your bank and its accounts fit the next phase of your life, great. If not, or you’re unsure, consider what else is available. continue reading » 14SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

first_imgThe multi-year trend of increasing the number of overnight stays on the Crikvenica Riviera continues successfully throughout 2017.At the very beginning of the month, on August 1, the number of one million overnight stays was exceeded, a week earlier than last year. Concrete figures for the period from the first seven months of 2017 (from 1 January to 31 July) show that a total of 198.931 arrivals were realized on the Crikvenica Riviera (21% more than in 2016) and 996.399 overnight stays, which is as much as 20,70 % more than in the same period in 2016.Number one on the list of top 10 countries is traditionally held by the Germans, who in the first seven months of 2017 achieved 235.125 overnight stays. They are followed by Croats with 150.218 overnight stays, Slovenes with 91.606 overnight stays, Austrians with 86.091 overnight stays, Hungarians 75.527, Poles 69.072 overnight stays, Slovaks 64.421, Czechs 63.793, Bosnia and Herzegovina took 9th place with 17.163, and Switzerland 10th with 15.980 overnight stays. “This year in the pre-season we were very well filled, even in the month of June we achieved a growth of 46 percent, which certainly contributed to the millionth overnight stay this year a week before. Very good expectations are expected for the post-season, booking and reactions from the field are very good and I am sure that we will achieve excellent results in the post-season. “Points out the director of the Crikvenica Tourist Board, Marijana Biondić, B.Sc. oec.Viewed individually, all types of accommodation recorded an increase in the period from January 1 to July 31, 2017. Thus, households (private accommodation) realized a total of 512.943 overnight stays (an increase of 25%), hotels 210.331 overnight stays (22 % more than in the same period in 2016), other catering facilities for accommodation 190.559 overnight stays (increase of 11,58%) and campsites 82.566 overnight stays (12,35% more than in the first seven months of 2016).

There are no standard rooms in the Esplanade, but an individual approach to design, but also to furnishing, decoration and service is required. This is our first design hotel for which we plan to further expand the capacity in today’s administrative building of the Adriatic and the Slavija boarding house, which are located in the immediate vicinity of the hotel, which will make the Esplanade an integral hotel. “, Said the President of the Management Board of Jadran dd Dino Manestar and added that the Esplanade has 35 employees of Jadran, and it is planned that the hotel will be open most of the year.center_img Related news: CRIKVENICA RECEIVES THE FIRST ZIP LINE IN EUROPE ABOVE THE SEAlast_img read more
