BIG Something Plays Cover-Heavy Set Honoring Seven Musicians Lost In The Last Year [Full Audio]

first_imgA little over a week ago, BIG Something descended on Mebane, NC for their annual The BIG What? Festival. The up and coming jam rockers always know how to throw a good time, and this year was no exception. The band not only hosted great musicians like The Werks, Turkuaz, Zach Deputy, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, and more, but they also brought a number of great performances to their own festival. The crowd could not have been happier!Among the many sets performed was a particularly moving Saturday night performance, where the band took a moment to honor a number of the musicians lost during the last year. The end of 2015 into 2016 has been a tough time for the music community, and BIG Something played the music of Prince, Merl Haggard, Lemmy Kilmister, Phife Dawg, Maurice White, David Bowie, and Bernie Worrell in their first set as a tribute to all of them. All of the covers, except Bowie’s “Fame,” were debuts for BIG Something.Thanks to taper Marty Loving, we can listen to the full performance below.

After sweep by Ohio State, SU aims to sure up fundamentals

first_img Published on November 3, 2010 at 12:00 pm Facebook Twitter Google+ Following consecutive losses against Ohio State last weekend, the Syracuse ice hockey team is now faced with its first real adversity of the season and its fair share of work. But on a team with 10 rotating freshmen and 11 new players, adversity is a good thing. It’s a learning experience. And before the schedule begins to creep into conference play, the coaching staff is working to get through that adversity to restore the little things that make the team effective. ‘Not to say that they’re confused,’ associate coach Graham Thomas said. ‘But the game happens so fast, and you have to worry about playing on instincts and making quick decisions. Sometimes I think there’s too much going on in their heads, and they’re not playing on instincts. Thinking too much instead of reacting and playing.’ This week, Syracuse has replaced full-squad practices with individual workouts, stressing fundamentals, skill breakdowns and a reiteration of roles in the team’s system. At 4-4-1, SU has completed just over a quarter of its 34-game season. The Orange had a frustrating weekend against Ohio State, cluttered with unlucky bounces and poor execution against the Buckeyes. While losing 4-2 last Saturday, SU was outshooting OSU by more than 20. Syracuse is doing what it can to take control of future momentum swings, as plainly as possible.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text And that can’t start halfway through its next second period. It has to start in practice. ‘What we’re really focusing on right now is that we don’t want to get too caught up and too carried away with what the other team is doing,’ Thomas said. ”Consistency in preparation’ is a term that we’ve been using with our players. I think that starts with focusing a lot about what we’re going to do to be successful and not worrying too much about them.’ Syracuse will meet Clarkson twice in a home-and-home series over the next two weekends, beginning at the Tennity Ice Skating Pavilion Friday. The Knights, who have been 3-2-1 since mid-October, own a 3-6-1 overall record and are taking a break from their own conference play to meet the Orange. Clarkson has 11 juniors and seniors with a senior goaltender. Syracuse has just eight upperclassmen, with freshman goalies seeing most of the work. Coaches stress preparation because this is a point in which the season can start to move very quickly for a young player. ‘I think together, it’s a good group,’ head coach Paul Flanagan said of his new group. ‘They’re outnumbered, of course. There are just three seniors with so many freshmen and sophomores. If anything, that’s the tough part of it. It’s their first few months away from home, in a strange environment, all these freedoms as individuals and all this work they have to do. There’s a lot going on.’ Early on, Syracuse was hanging with nationally ranked opponents and toppling lesser ones. Perhaps Ohio State was worth all the hype and Syracuse will have to lick its wounds and get up off the deck. But either way, this young Syracuse team and program will have to grow up fast. And for SU’s players, that means getting back to the basic skills that got them to this point. SU players won’t exactly know how good the opponent will be until they go over the game film on Thursday, and maybe even until they hit the ice on Friday. But in a sense, that’s not too important right now. If Syracuse is going to get its work done on Friday, it will be because its players are able to focus on themselves and not their opponents. ‘I wouldn’t say that we’re over-preparing, but what we need to do is simplify our approach. Keep it more streamlined,’ Thomas said. ‘More simple. More about what we have to do to execute to be successful on our end.’ [email protected]center_img Commentslast_img read more

Lessons learned in Ohio’s updated fertilizer recommendations

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest At the recent 4R Field Day in Hardin County, Ohio State soil fertility specialist Steve Culman presented on the updated fertilizer recommendations through 300+ on-farm strip trials since 2014.He said some main take-home points he hoped to get across to agriculturalists were:From 2014 – 2017, 300+ on-farm strip trials were conducted across Ohio evaluating corn, soybean and wheat response to N, P and K fertilizer.Yield responses to P and K fertilizer in soils at or above the current maintenance range were very rare.Long-term data from 3 sites show that when Ohio soils are in the current maintenance range, they can supply sufficient P and K to meet corn and soybean demand for many growing seasons without fertilization.Recommended corn N rates were updated this spring and are based on maximizing farmer profitability, not maximizing yields.Corn, soybean and wheat are yielding more grain with less nutrient: Grain nutrient removal per bushel of grain is lower than it was 20 years ago.Further details in this video.last_img read more

Nathan Lyon equals Dennis Lillees Test record

first_imgLondon: Nathan Lyon has equalled Australian pace legend Dennis Lillee’s record of 355 Test wickets and in the process is now the country’s third highest wicket-taker in the longest format of the game. Lyon on Thursday registered figures of 3/68 that helped him reach the tally. He is still a fair distance away from reaching the second spot which is held by Glenn McGrath with 563 wickets. Shane Warne is the all-time highest wicket taker with a whopping 708 scalps. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over Chandigarh Lyon got to the mark in 88 matches, 18 more than Lillee who played the last of his 70 Tests in 1984. Lyon however said after Day 1’s play at Lord’s that he feels awkward being in such prestigious company. “I really struggle to see myself up with the likes of Warne, McGrath, Lillee, it doesn’t sit well with me,” Lyon said. “In my eyes those guys are true legends of the game and I’m just some bloke trying to bowl off-breaks and trying to make Australian fans proud of the Australian cricket team.”last_img read more

Dining of the future vegan restaurant boom fuelled by meat eaters

first_imgFoodies say Canada is in the midst of a renaissance in plant-based dining as vegan restaurants sprout up across the country and traditional establishments update their menus to make them more animal-friendly.But restaurateurs say the proliferation of options is being driven not by observant vegans, but by dabbling omnivores looking for appealing meat-free fare.“I think we’re living in kind of a boom of veganism,” said Eva Lampert, director of vegan operations at the 5700 Inc., an events and hospitality company. “People are more curious about it, and thankfully, that has meant there’s more demand for it.”Lampert is part of the team pushing to rebrand a stretch of the Parkdale neighbourhood in Toronto’s west end as “Vegandale,” which she describes as a “little mecca” of vegan businesses that will help redefine plant-based dining as far more than just “rabbit food.”Vegans go beyond vegetarians in banning meat from their plates, also abstaining from animal products including eggs, dairy and honey.The 5700 Inc. co-owns Doomie’s Toronto and Mythology Diner, side-by-side restaurants that serve veganized comfort classics made by two different chefs. Across the street is the company’s vegan retail boutique The Imperative.Mythology’s menu includes faux Reuben sandwiches, eggs Benedict, and polenta poutine, while Doomie’s serves imitation chicken sandwiches and mac ‘n’ cheese balls. Soy, wheat and vegetables are used as substitutes for meat and dairy.By the end of the year, Lampert said “Vegandale” plans to expand to six storefronts from three, with restaurants offering a range of cuisines and price points including diner fare, desserts and meat-free fast food.“With our business model, we’re looking to get the non-vegans in first and foremost,” she said. “We’re really looking to bring in the skeptics and the people who are unsure of vegan food so they can kind of have that ‘aha’ moment and realize a lot of the things they already are enjoying are vegan.”At the soon-to-be-opened Rosalinda in Toronto’s financial district, co-owners Max Rimaldi and Jamie Cook set out to create a Mexican vegan restaurant that could compete with any steakhouse in the city’s cutthroat dining scene.“We take care of all the elements that are required for a good restaurant, period,” Rimaldi said. “It just happens to be vegan.”More than a decade in the making, Rosalinda was borne out of what Rimaldi and Cook, who eat a largely plant-based diet, had perceived to be a sparse and uninspired vegan dining scene.The partners behind the Pizzeria Libretto chain teamed up with restaurateur Grant van Gameren, whose portfolio of meat-heavy establishments earned him a reputation as Toronto’s “charcuterie king,” said Rimaldi.While perhaps an unlikely partner, Rimaldi said van Gameren’s palate-pushing culinary approach was key to designing an eclecticmenu that appeals to the meat-eating masses, not just “granola-eating people.”“The people who come into the restaurant and say, ‘I typically eat at … a meat-based restaurant, and I love coming here because I don’t miss the meat,’ that’s going to be the biggest compliment we can hear.”In Ottawa, there are more than 232 vegan-friendly restaurants and cafes, up from 186 last year, according to Ethical Tree, an online directory that tracks socially-conscious businesses in a few Ontario cities.Co-founder Frank Ferris, who consults with businesses about targeting ethically minded consumers, said as plant-based diets become more popular, particularly among young people, non-vegan restaurants are adding animal-friendly options in a bid to regain market share.He pointed to a recent study conducted by a Dalhousie University professor that showed more than seven per cent of Canadians consider themselves vegetarians, and 2.3 per cent identify as vegan. The survey also suggested people younger than 35 were three times more likely to consider themselves vegetarians or vegans than people 49 or older.Ferris said diners with diet restrictions can have disproportionate sway in group decisions about eating out, so for every vegan customer a restaurant can accommodate, the returns are often multiplied by all their omnivorous friends.“These are deeply held beliefs,” said Ferris. “If a customer goes into your store or restaurant because they’re vegan … and you cater to that ethical preference, then they’re likely to stay loyal.”Andrew Infantino, marketing director of Montreal-based Copper Branch, said his fast-casual franchise sees ethical concerns about the environment and animal welfare as “secondary benefits” of its vegan menu, instead emphasizing how plant-based “power foods” can contribute to a healthy lifestyle.With 17 locations in Ontario and Quebec, Copper Branch is on track to add eight more locations by the end of the year, Infantino said, and next year expects to double the size of its empire to 50 restaurants in other provinces.Infantino said plant-based diets have emerged as “the new cool,” attracting endorsements from celebrities and athletes including Canadian figure skater Meagan Duhamel, who partnered with Copper Branch to talk about how her vegan diet fuelled her training for this year’s Olympics.“There are so many benefits that I don’t see how a movement like this can just be a fad,” he said. “I hope it’s the dining of the future.”last_img read more
