Circles Around The Sun To Play Post-Dead & Company Show In Boulder

first_img[courtesy of Greg Crist]With the release of the album proper, Interludes For The Dead, fans of the project were given the opportunity to once again listen to the brilliance that was created by Casal and cohorts. Clearly inspired by the Dead themselves, the songs on the album not only take various references from the legendary’s groups catalog, like “Kasey’s Bones,” “Farewell Franklins,” and “Scarlotta’s Magnolia’s,” the music itself veers in and out of themes and styles Jerry Garcia and his brothers-in-musical-arms put into action over the course of their career.Tickets for the show are currently on-sale and can be purchased here. For additional information and show updates, join the Facebook Event page.The Boulder Theater and Fox Theatre will both host several late-night events surrounding the Dead & Company run in Boulder.

For updates, check the Facebook Event page. Two summers back when the Grateful Dead were planning their 50th Anniversary Fare Thee Well performance at Soldier Field in Chicago, it was decided that Chris Robinson Brotherhood guitarist and frequent Phil Lesh & Friends collaborator Neal Casal would create the set-break music. The group he brought together was dubbed Circles Around The Sun, and many of us didn’t know exactly what we were hearing during those shows, but our ears could not stop listening as the Dead regrouped backstage for set two.As we learned that weekend, it was Casal, along with the help of keyboardist Adam MacDougall, bassist Dan Horne, and drummer Mark Levy, that kept the vibe at a high during set break. After debuting the project in a live setting last year for a few performances, Circles Around The Sun will play The Boulder Theater after Dead & Company‘s performance at Folsom Field in Boulder, CO on Friday June 9th.last_img read more

FA Cup: Arsenal edge past Leeds into fourth round

first_imgRelatedPosts Arsenal, Leeds, Everton battle for €40m Dennis FA Cup replays scrapped in 2020-21 to ease fixture pressure Breaking: Arsenal win FA Cup, qualify for Europa League Reiss Nelson hit the only goal of the game as Arsenal took advantage of profligate finishing from Leeds to secure their place in FA Cup fourth round. The Gunners will travel to Bournemouth at the end of the month after England Under-21 winger Nelson finished from close-range to settle a tie which saw Sky Bet Championship leaders Leeds more than match their top-flight opponents. A decade on from a memorable FA Cup shock at rivals Manchester United, Leeds looked set to once again ruffle the feathers of the established order, only to fall agonisingly short after a fine display in front of a vast away following at the Emirates Stadium. Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta, taking charge of just his fourth match, must have displayed the half-time attributes of someone like his opposite number Marcelo Bielsa – whose first foray into management came when his counterpart was just eight years old – as Arsenal were a different prospect after a dismal first-half. Leeds wasted a glut of chances to take the lead and make it a jittery night for Arteta and the home fans, Patrick Bamford coming closest when he rattled the frame of the goal. But, after the break, Arsenal responded to whatever Arteta demanded of them and Nelson’s tap-in on 55 minutes was enough to seal a hard-fought victory. Nicolas Pepe, having already enjoyed an early run at the Leeds defence, was the first to draw a save out of debutant Illan Meslier in the visitors’ goal. But it was the second-tier side who were using the ball better in the opening stages, working it into dangerous positions without finding an end product. They eventually tested Emiliano Martinez as Jack Harrison stung the palms of the stand-in Gunners goalkeeper, who was then helpless as Patrick Bamford’s strike cannoned back off the crossbar moments later. Arsenal – as they have been so often this season – were creating their own problems as a number of misplaced passes out of defence from the likes of David Luiz and fit-again Rob Holding saw them caught out by a Leeds side full of pressing players. Arteta’s surprise decision to deploy Sokratis Papastathopoulos at right-back was also looking questionable as the Greece international was easily beaten for pace by Ezgjan Alioski, who then angled a shot wide. Despite all of Leeds’ attacking play, they should have been behind on the half-hour mark but Luiz could only head Mesut Ozil’s corner wide having been picked out free in the box. At the other end, Martinez had to spring across his goal to keep out Alioski’s close-range header after the winger once again got the better of Sokratis. Yet another opportunity went begging for the away side as Robbie Gotts, another man making his Leeds debut, miscued a strike as the Arsenal fans began to grow restless. That unrest continued as the half drew to a close and concluded with Sokratis appearing to gesture to a section of supporters to calm down. Arsenal responded by starting the second-half with an urgency that was lacking for the opening 45 minutes, Nelson bursting into the box and then Alexandre Lacazette clipping the crossbar from a free-kick. Lacazette, wearing the captain’s armband in the absence of strike partner Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, then drew a low save out of Meslier before Matteo Guendouzi’s curling shot bent wide of the post. Leeds were now the side playing on the counter-attack and Bamford tested Martinez as a frenetic opening to the second period continued. Arsenal broke the deadlock from the very next attack as Pepe burst forward and fed Lacazette, who crossed in for Nelson to bundle home despite close attention from Meslier. Lacazette was lucky to escape a red card after aiming a kick at Gaetano Berardi, with both referee Anthony Taylor and the video assistant referee happy that it was not a matter of violent conduct. But there would be no late salvo from a Leeds side who have made something of a trademark from scoring late goals and they will return to their promotion push as Arsenal prepare for a trip to the Vitality Stadium in round four.Tags: FA CupLeedsReiss Nelsonlast_img read more

Olympics Online: Who Wins The Gold Medal For Best Website?

first_imgThese guides not only explain the various Olympics sports – very helpful for sports like fencing and equestrian, which only enthusiasts follow outside of the Olympics – but they encourage you to give the sports a go yourself.Runners-UpThe Official London 2012 Olympics WebsiteWhile not a media website per se, the London 2012 Olympics website is a good place to get the latest news and photos. It features Facebook integration, including the dreaded frictionless sharing (“Your friends will see the articles you’ve read and the events you’ve celebrated.”). The official site has been active too on its Facebook and Twitter accounts – we’ve noticed athletes re-tweeting the official account a lot. Tags:#design#web We’re well into the second week of the London 2012 Olympics, so which media website is winning with its online coverage? NBC fell at the first hurdle with its TV scheduling, but did the network get back into the race with its website? What about the New York Times, with its muscular web development? Or hometown favorite the BBC, with the crowd behind it – not to mention the wallet of the British taxpayer. In this post we’ll compare the main media outlets and see which ones are medal-worthy.Gold: The New York Times The TelegraphThe British daily has a comprehensive website, including some interesting infographics.USA Today USA Today brings its trademark strengths of storytelling and explanatory graphics to the Olympics, with an informative website. We recommend you check out the interactive section.NBCNBC’s Olympics website was the place to go for American viewers who wanted to watch the Olympics live. Alternatively people could access live coverage online in other, sometimes less legal, ways. Apart from the live video though, NBC’s website is solid but unexciting.ESPNESPN has a nice collection of video commentaries and written opinion pieces, if you can stand the eye-scorchingly bright red background of its Olympics subsite.YahooYahoo’s coverage is fine, but there are better places to get your Olympics news and results. It does though have some useful athlete profiles, along with a sappy “Team Mom” section (featuring interviews of mothers of athletes).ReutersReuters has a standalone website, in addition to partnering with the NYT. Its own website is well designed, but seems devoid of the personality of other media sites.Of course there are many other media websites out there which have good coverage of the Olympics. If we missed your favorite, please add it to the comments!See also: Social Olympics: Does The Gold Medal Go To Facebook, Twitter or Google+? 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting It’s a relatively simple graph showing when Yang won the race (the last quarter). Below that is a geographical view of previous winners of this event. I was able to click on my country, New Zealand, to see Danyon Loader’s name pop up for 1996. Although I was unable to click on Loader’s name – or Yang’s for that matter – to find out more details about the swimmer.Here’s another example, which is more in-depth. It’s a bubble-based view of the medal table. The host nation’s public broadcaster, the BBC, has been widely praised for its television coverage. There are up to 24 live channels devoted to the Olympics at any one time. As for its website, the coverage is solid – if unspectacular. There is plenty of Olympics news and photos, with a bias towards Team Great Britain (as to be expected with any national publication).One of the more interesting features is the BBC’s Event Guides. Related Posts Hover over a country and you see its medal tally. Click on it and the data underneath the graph changes to show all of that country’s medal results.Silver: The Guardian The New York Times Olympics website is as sleek and good looking as an American track athlete. The site is a compelling combination of facts and figures, news analysis, interactive graphs and multimedia (video and photos). It’s also beautifully laid out, with clear navigation. Not only did the NYT build an Olympics site for itself, it partnered with Reuters to syndicate the data and content to other publications.A highlight of the NYT website is its data-based graphics. Here’s an example from the 400m freestyle swimming race, won by China’s Sun Yang: A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Just about anything the Guardian does on the Web is innovative and polished – and its Olympics coverage has been no exception. The NYT seemed slightly more satisfactory to us in terms of breadth and depth of stories, and ability to move around the site, but the Guardian does have some outstanding features. In particular, a “second screen” subsite. The New Zealand team ranked third, by population. That’s something for this author to be proud of.Bronze: BBC It’s a browser website, but it works best on a tablet. The idea is to offer real-time information – news, statistics, photos, tweets and more – on your tablet device while you watch the Olympics on TV. Very handy!Like the NYT, the Guardian makes a good attempt at offering interactive data services. For example, a daily updated Olympic medal table ranked by GDP, population and team size.

Sarovar dam-hit fishermen grapple with altering breeding patterns

first_imgHundreds of farmers, potters and fishermen from 178 villages that were submerged by the backwaters of the Narmada, marched to the office of the Narmada Valley Development Authority in Bhopal demanding rehabilitation and alternative employment on Saturday.Ever since the Sardar Sarovar dam downstream was filled to the brim, the Narmada has developed an erratic current and an unstable course, posing a challenge to fishermen in Madhya Pradesh. “When the backwaters swelled, the catch dwindled dramatically. And now, several species have become extinct in the river,” says Mansarovar Verma, 53, a fisherman of Chikhalda village in Barwani district. “We don’t want contractors from outside to take over water bodies. Local fishermen have a traditional right to them,” said Medha Patkar, of the Narmada Bachao Andolan, who led the rally and then staged a dharna with the protesters.Fall in catch “Water has entered forests, and dead leaves are detrimental to fish. Furthermore, garbage from submerged villages has caused a large-scale pollution of the river,” said Mr. Verma.He now catches 2-4 kg of fish a day, earning only up to ₹400 a day. Three months ago, he netted 8-10 kg, bringing home ₹1,000 a day. “We want compensation or land for the loss incurred. We don’t want to work for a fishing contractor, who’ll set terms for us,” he said. Earlier, a drop in the water level after the monsoon gave them an opportunity to cultivate muskmelon and watermelon on the river banks around the month of January. After the water level rose, this too became impossible. The government has opened 32 societies for fishermen in Dhar, Barwani and Khargone districts, which share the river’s banks, to dispel the fears about contractors taking over fishing. Several species, including ‘mahseer’, has gone extinct.last_img read more
