Karl Denson Joins Melvin Seals and JGB At Wanee [Listen]

first_imgAnother musical highlight from the weekend at Wanee Music Festival came from the legendary music of Melvin Seals and JGB during a particularly sunny Saturday afternoon set. Seals’ background in gospel music and R&B fit in perfectly, pushing the musical boundaries with a repertoire that included everything from rock and gospel to jazz and reggae. For nearly two decades, the hammond B3 organ wizard was one of the select few who had the distinct privilege of sharing the stage with Jerry Garcia during the much celebrated tenure of the Jerry Garcia Band. Since Garcia’s death in 1995, Seals’ has remained one of the true “keepers of the flame,” faithfully preaching the good book of Jerry wherever he goes, most recently with Terrapin Flyer and JGB.Wanee’s Seals & JGB performance was certainly one for the books, as it also included sax-player and jazz-flute extraordinaire Karl Denson on deck for the entire set.Thanks to taper Butch Almberg, you can stream the full set here:Enjoy some photos, courtesy of Ben Adams: Melvin Seals & JGB @ Wanee 4/16/16:Set: Let’s Spend The Night Together > The Harder They Come, Finder’s Keepers, Tore Up, Like A Road Leading Home, That’s What Love Will Make You Do, My Sisters & Brothers, DealAlso from Wanee, you can watch videos and stream the audio from these very special performances: Gov’t Mule with Jack Pearson, Billy & The Kids with Warren Haynes and Eric Krasno, Joel Cummins with Kung Fu, Warren Haynes with Les Brers, Umphrey’s McGee’s mash-up set, and Warren Haynes sit-in with Widespread Panic for ZZ Top covers.

Students’ house destroyed in fire

first_imgA house inhabited by nine members of Notre Dame’s women’s lacrosse team was destroyed in a fire Friday afternoon, according to a WSBT report. No one was injured in the blaze on the 200 block of East Marion St., just east of Memorial Hospital. The fire was out by late afternoon, the report said. Notre Dame’s Office of Student Affairs is in the process of finding on-campus housing for the students because the house is heavily damaged. Few belongings were salvaged from the blaze. The report said the fire’s cause is still unknown, though a friend of the tenants said a hot barbeque grill was near the house when the fire started. The outside temperature was in the 90s, sunny and humid.last_img read more

Series of events celebrates Dia de los Muertos

first_imgThe Crossroads Gallery for Contemporary Art and Partners is hosting a series of events in celebration of Día de los Muertos at the Notre Dame Center for Arts and Culture (NDCAC) and the Snite Museum of Art.The exhibition “Remembering the Undocumented Across the Rio Grande” and a Día de los Muertos event took place Thursday at the NDCAC, according to art coordinator of the Crossroads Gallery, Alex Schaufele. The events included an opening reception and altar dedication, with musical performances by Mariachi ND and Ballet Folklorico Azul y Oro.“[Día de los Muertos] is a time to remember those we have lost and perhaps those we do not know,” Schaufele said. “It is a communal celebration of life.”In continuation of the celebration,  a talk with featured artist Sandra Fernandez is scheduled today at 4 p.m. at the Snite Museum, Schaufele said. A reading of “Ofrenda of Voices: Celebrating the Dead” is scheduled to take place Saturday through Notre Dame’s creative writing program.“I will talk about my trajectory as an artist,” Fernandez said. “Where I started and where I am now. My experiences. Who I am as an artist and what my interests are.”Schaufele said the gallery chose to host Fernandez as the featured guest artist based on suggestions supplied by planning committee members hoping to showcase a unique approach to Día de los Muertos.“Last year was an Africana approach dedicated to Martin Luther King, Jr. by [artist] Diógenes Ballester,” she said. “This year, we are featuring Sandra, an Ecuadorian artist who works with undocumented individuals.”Fernandez said the exhibition and ofrenda are dedicated to those who have died while crossing the border from Mexico to the U.S., particularly along the Rio Grande.“I have been working with undocumented peoples and wanted to bring attention to those who have died crossing the border,” she said. “Many of them are never identified, and I wanted to honor them.”The dedication was a way to pray for the souls of the dead, who passed away far from friends, families and their homes, Fernandez said.“I’m bringing a different awareness and information about a population to the area,” she said. “I want to celebrate and pay homage to that population.”As part of this year’s celebration, Schaufele said those involved offer both a traditional altar for everyone to participate in and a nontraditional one as a part of the exhibition, which includes an interactive component.“All four events were generated based on Día de los Muertos and those who Sandra chose to honor in her exhibition,” she said.Although this event took place at the Snite Museum in previous years, Schaufele said the NDCAC began hosting it last year.“[We are hosting the] exhibition in the Crossroads Gallery for Contemporary Art as way to bring the community and Notre Dame students together,” she said.Tags: Dia de los Muertos, Notre Dame Center for Arts and Culture, Sandra Fernandez, Snite Museum of Artlast_img read more

Sources: Trump unlikely to fill NCUA board slots for months

first_imgPresident Trump is unlikely to send the Senate his two choices to fill vacancies on the NCUA board until late fall at the earliest, according to sources in Washington and the credit union community.Those sources said the White House has not started interviewing potential candidates. They said when the nominees are selected—one Republican and one Democrat—they probably will be sent to the Senate together.Pairing the two nominees could smooth the confirmation process, they said.“They provide political cover for each other when paired, as is almost certain to happen,” said former NCUA Board Chairman Dennis Dollar. continue reading » 6SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Costa Rica legalizes same-sex marriage in first for Central America

first_imgCosta Rica legalized same-sex marriage on Tuesday, becoming the first Central American country to do so, as a court ruling came into force at midnight.Planned celebrations did not take place because of the coronavirus pandemic, but a special program about LGBT rights was broadcast on public television and online as the first weddings were held.”This change will bring about a significant social and cultural transformation, allowing thousands of people to marry,” said President Carlos Alvarado in the program. Costa Rica is the eighth country in the Americas to recognize same-sex marriage — a group that includes Brazil, Ecuador and Argentina, as well as Canada and the US.The move was triggered by a 2018 ruling of the Supreme Court which declared the part of the law banning gay marriage was unconstitutional.That ruling gave parliament 18 months to legislate on the matter — but it did not, so the provision was automatically annulled.”Costa Rica is celebrating today: marriage equality has become a reality in the country — the first one in Central America,” said the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA) in a tweet. “We rejoice with you: congratulations to all those who worked so hard to make it happen!”Victor Madrigal-Borloz, the UN’s Independent Expert on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity, called it “an extraordinary moment of celebration” in a tweet posted hours before midnight.He expressed “gratitude to the work of so many activists, and of quiet reflection of the lives of those who lived without seeing this moment”.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Rwanda launches consultations on Kagame third term

first_imgRwanda to vote on Kagame Third Term Next Week Kagame Yet to Decide on Third Term Kagame, 57, has been at the helm of Rwandan politics since 1994Rwandan lawmakers began a national tour Monday consulting people on possible constitutional changes to allow President Paul Kagame a third term in power, parliament speaker Donatilla Mukabalisa said.Last week both houses in parliament voted in support of a constitutional change, backing a petition signed by millions of citizens.“All lawmakers will go to consult with the population … to ask them their opinion about the amendment – what they expect from this reform,” Mukabalisa told AFP.Over 3.7 million people – well over half of the voters – signed a petition calling for a change to Article 101 of the constitution, which limits the president to two terms, according to Rwandan media.The consultations, which end on August 11, will guide lawmakers as they draft proposed changes.Any change to the constitution would require a vote in support by at least three-quarters of both parliamentary houses, followed by a national referendum.From the trauma of genocide, Kagame has been painted as a guarantor of stability and economic development, earning praise from donors – and his supporters say many in Rwanda view the prospect of his departure as a step into the unknown.Critics say however that he has silenced the opposition and the media.Kagame says the decision is for the “Rwandan people.”The move comes amid a wider controversy in Africa over efforts by leaders to change constitutions in order to stay in office.Neighboring Burundi has been in turmoil since April when President Pierre Nkurunziza announced his bid to stand for a third term in polls, a move branded by opponents as unconstitutional and a violation of a peace deal that paved the way to end civil war in 2006.Relatedcenter_img Rwanda MPs to debate Kagame bid for third termlast_img read more

At 33, Monfils hopes it’s not too late to win Slam

first_img Loading… Gael Monfils won his second ATP title in as many weeks on Sunday in Rotterdam before insisting that he still has a Grand Slam victory in him despite being 33.Advertisement French third seed Monfils capped off a fortnight of success with a 6-2, 6-4 defeat of Felix Auger-Aliassime, handing the Canadian teenager his fourth loss in four career finals. Monfils has now won his last 10 matches at the Dutch tournament after claiming the 2019 title over Stan Wawrinka.A week ago he lifted the title in Montpellier.Now with 10 career titles under his belt, the world number nine said he still dreams of winning a Masters 1000 title and even, perhaps, a Grand Slam.“Before the season, I wanted to stay in the top 10, maybe try to reach fifth or sixth in the world,” said Monfils.“I want to try and reach the final in a Masters 1000 and try to win one. The dream is also to win a Slam, that’s what I play and train for. Maybe one day I can do that.“But I need to keep healthy, be 100 per cent and keep believing that I can make it.”Monfils has been a runner-up at the Masters level three times – at Paris in 2009 and 2010 and Monte Carlo in 2016.His best runs at the majors remain semi-final spots at Roland Garros in 2008 and the 2016 US Open.“It’s an amazing feeling to back it (tournament title) up for the first time, year after year, week after week,” added Monfils of his successful Rotterdam title defence.“I’ve never experienced that in my career. I feel grateful – and I’m happy I don’t have to play next week. I can release the pressure.”Auger-Aliassime, 19, has now lost all four of his ATP finals following defeats in Rio de Janeiro, Lyon and Stuttgart in 2019.He was also a member of the Canadian side which lost to Spain in last year’s Davis Cup final.“Gael defended well and made me play,” admitted the 21st-ranked Canadian.At 33, Monfils hopes it’s not too late to win a Slam https://t.co/JTwA4WmthU pic.twitter.com/vqMsAZjTh0— Sports news 247 (@footbal42267855) February 17, 2020Read Also: Golf: Scott wins Genesis Invitational, Woods stumbles“Bravo Gael, I’m happy for you.

Gattuso warns Napoli fans not to be carried away with Osimhen’s feat

first_imgGennaro Gattuso has warned Napoli fans not to get over-excited after Victor Osimhen’s debut hat-trick. ‘We didn’t sign Pele or Diego Maradona, just a player who brings something different.’ The Partenopei had their first pre-season friendly, with two 45-minute matches that ended 10-0 against Castel di Sangro and 11-0 with L’Aquila. “I am satisfied with the world we’re doing, the team is motivated and knows what it wants,” the coach told Radio Kiss Kiss and Sky Sport Italia. “We are all aware that we have to improve in so many respects. We’ve got to do better when off the ball, be able to cover every inch of the field, and find the right balance. “More importantly, stamina, because I still can’t believe we basically scored three goals against ourselves against Barcelona in the Champions League. We’ve got to stay totally focused for 90 minutes. “We must be aware that what we did last season wasn’t enough to qualify for the Champions League, so we must all do more and believe strongly in what we are doing.” Osimhen made a huge impact, scoring a hat-trick within eight minutes of his debut. “It’s too easy to get excited now, we’ve got to give him time and let him work, not put pressure on,” insisted Gattuso of the €80m signing from Lille. read also:JUST-IN: Osimhen dazzles Napoli with hat-trick in 11 goals thriller “He is an important player and we paid a lot for him, but there were no doubts he would give us something different that we haven’t had in my time here. There’s a long way to go. “It’s not like we suddenly signed Pele or Maradona, we simply brought in a player with certain characteristics that can help us.” In order to accommodate Osimhen, Gattuso changed his system to a 4-2-3-1, with Hirving Lozano, Dries Mertens and Lorenzo Insigne fanning out behind the Nigerian centre-forward.
