String Cheese Incident Welcomes Umphrey’s McGee’s Kris Myers In Chicago [Videos]

first_imgPhoto: Aaron Bradley Following a rumbling “You’ve Got The World”, the band moved into a strong take on the beautiful tune “Joyful Sound”. Coming out of the tune, String Cheese Incident offered up one the nicest surprises of the night—an unexpected cover of Steppenwolf’s “Magic Carpet Ride”, a song that hadn’t been played since 7/20/2012. To end out the set in full, the group played a triumphant “Just One Story” before offering up two strong encores, first with “Barstool” and lastly with “Beautiful”.You can check out a gallery of photos from String Cheese’s performance at the Chicago Theatre last night below, courtesy of Aaron Bradley Engler.Setlist: String Cheese Incident | Chicago Theatre | Chicago, IL | 11/25/2017Set 1: Sirius ^, Stop Drop Roll, Little Hands > Song in my Head > Believe, Ophelia* > Way Back Home > RolloverSet 2: Drums +, Restless Wind > These Waves > Dijibouti Bump & > Hi Ho No Show, You’ve Got The World, Joyful Sound > Magic Carpet Ride % > Just One StoryE1 : BarstoolE2 : Beautiful^ Alan Parsons cover, * The Band cover, + W/ Kris Myers, & Scarlet Begonias tease, % Steppenwolf (Last Played 7/20/12) While classics showed up regularly during the start of the first set, String Cheese Incident mixed it up with “Believe”, the title track off their newest album released this summer. The rendition was particularly noteworthy given its effortlessness—booming and rolling, the band used the number to show what they’re all about. Charging onward, the band offered up the second cover of the night with a rendition of The Band’s “Ophelia”, creating an energy that would be carried into the set break. The jam out of “Ophelia” segued into “Way Back Home”, which drove head-on into a set-ending “Rollover”, making for the first set’s obvious highlight.Considering that Chicago is the hometown of Umphrey’s McGee drummer Kris Myers, it came to no surprise that Myers came out to join the band to begin the String Cheese Incident’s second set. During the first set, rumors buzzed around the theater that Kris was walking around, and what better way to prove those rumors true with an outstanding drum jam with Michael Travis and Jason Hann? Eventually, the drums ceased, and the strings came the forefront for a spellbinding “Restless Wind”, which seemlessly transitioned into “These Waves”. During “Dijubouti Bump”, the band broke into a very convincing “Scarlet Begonias” tease that sent many into a frenzy before fizzling out. The jam would finally catch a break after “Hi Ho No Show”.Drums with Kris Myers Photo: Aaron Bradley String Cheese Incident | Chicago Theatre | Chicago, IL | 11/25/2017 | Photos: Aaron Bradley Engler On Saturday night, November 25th, crowds made their way back to the historic Chicago Theatre for the second and final night of the String Cheese Incident’s Chicago run. Particularly in light of Friday’s strong, if not at moments surprising, performance, fans came ready for the highly anticipated final night of the band’s Thanksgiving run, marking the last shows the band will play before ringing in the New Year next month.String Cheese Incident Welcomes The Motet’s Dave Watts On Drums [Videos/Photos]String Cheese Incident started off the show with an Alan Parsons cover of “Sirius”. The tune opened up for a roundabout, during which Bill Nershi took time to introduce each member as the band, eliciting huge choruses of applause from the crowd after each name. Continuing on, the boys barreled through “Stop, Drop, Roll” before taking the audience on an odyssey with “Little Hands” and “Song In My Head”. From this point on, the tone was set and the show was in the full motion, with Cheese following up a powerful rendition of “Song in my Head”.“Sirius” Load remaining imageslast_img read more

Superman Suphanan drives United to victory

first_imgUnited fans celebrate an important 3-0 victory over Ratchaburi Mitr Phol FC. (Photo courtesy Pattaya United FC)Pattaya United 3, Ratchaburi FC 0Pattaya United welcomed seventh placed Ratchaburi Mitr Phol FC to the Dolphins Stadium last Saturday, July 29 with the home team looking for their fourth win in the last 5 games against a side that had just beaten Chonburi FC 5-1.Pattaya United’s Suphanan Bureerat celebrates opening the scoring during his team’s Thai Premier League fixture against Ratchaburi Mitr Phol FC at the Dolphins Stadium in Pattaya, Saturday, July 29. (Photo courtesy Pattaya United FC)That game had made national headlines as a half time bust up between Rat­chaburi manager Tannawat Nitttikanchana and Chon­buri forward Thiago, with security officers becoming involved, led to a delay of 45 minutes.  Thiago was left requiring stitches to a head wound and a 5 week ban while the Ratchaburi manager received the same punishment but later resigned from his post.Pattaya also felt aggrieved in the manner of their 1-0 defeat in the league game at Ratchaburi earlier in the season, so this match promised to be a keenly contested affair. From the start it was clear why Ratchaburi are having a good season.  Each player looked comfortable on the ball and the side were so well organized that Pattaya were finding it really difficult to create any chances.The visitors also had a very strong target man up front in the shape of the imposing Marcel Essombe who had already score 18 times this season.  It was fortunate for the home side that captain Lee Won-Young was having a fine game.  The South Korean was simply magnificent in the air and he hardly lost a challenge to the large Ghanaian forward.As the half progressed Pattaya warmed to the task and would have taken the lead if Picha U-Tra could have shown a little more composure in front of goal when he was twice given an opportunity to score in a 20 second period.  Sadly the chances went begging and teams went into half time level at 0-0.Two months ago Pattaya would have faltered in the second period but the Dolphins are a very different team now.  Keeping their shape but growing stronger by the minute, it was of no surprise when the home side took the lead in the 58th minute, be it in rather unusual circumstances.With a free kick out wide everyone, including the Rat­chaburi keeper Ukrit, was expecting a cross.  But Suphanan Bureerat had not read the script and he curled the ball to the far post and struck it so cleanly that it flew over the startled keeper’s head and into the net to give Pattaya a deserved 1-0 lead.Each week the uncompromising right back Suphanan gives his all for the team and he rarely has a bad game.  It was fitting that he should open the scoring and he must be in line for making the short list for Pattaya’s player of the season.  One hopes that the management manage to sign him up on a full contract as it would be a tragedy if Muangthong recalled their loanee.As the visitors tried desperately to get back into the game more space became available for the Dolphins to break into.  This was helped with the introduction of Wellington Priori and in the 78th minute a break down the right resulted in a dangerous cross falling to the feet of Peeradol Chamratsamee.  Needing no second invitation, Peeradon smashed it past Ukrti to double Pattaya’s lead.With the game going into injury time a corner from Suphanan found the head of Lee Won-Young who directed the ball goal-wards where it was left to Aleksandr Jevtic, with a true goal poacher’s instinct, to deflect it into the net.  A fine end to the evening and a wonderful winning 3-0 performance that sees the team climb to ninth in the table.last_img read more

Game Day Preview: Pittsburgh Steelers at New England Patriots

first_imgPittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger talks with Oakland Raiders defensive tackle Stacy McGee after game in Oakland, Calif., Oct. 27. The Raiders won 21-18. (AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez) At 2-5; the Steelers are officially in crisis mode. Their reward? A trip to New England where they never win against Tom Brady and the Patriots.  The season is rapidly slipping away and it’s on Mike Tomlin, Ben Roethlisberger and the rest of the coaches and veterans to not let this ship completely sink.Here are the Keys to A Steelers Victory:1. They will need to pressure Tom Brady. The Black and Gold have failed to get to Tom Brady over the years and as Brady has proven time and time again, if you give him time, he’ll burn you big.2. The offense can be the team’s best defense. The best way to beat the Patriots is to keep Brady off the field as much as possible. The offense will need to exercise ball control. They’ll need to be able to run the ball effectively and mix in the passes accordingly.3. Playing physical football is a must. The Patriots can be bullied and the old Steelers knew how to do that. Timmons and Woodley need to show the Patriots who’s in charge early and often.  4. The most obvious statement but possibly the most truthful, they can’t commit the stupid penalties. The last thing this team needs to do is provide the Patriots with free yards on either side of the ball.   New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady passes against the Miami Dolphins in the second half of game Oct. 27, in Foxborough, Mass. (AP Photo/Michael Dwyer)Here are a Few Things to Watch: 1. Big Ben-How will he play in a matchup against the guy he defines as the best quarterback in the NFL?2. LeVeon Bell-He’s been very enigmatic in his first few games in the NFL. He seems to go up and down week by week. Based on that pattern he’s due for a good week but will it happen? Will the real LeVeon Bell show up or is the real LeVeon Bell a 35 yard per game rusher?3. Emmanuel Sanders-Remember he was signed to an offer sheet by the Pats in the offseason, will he want to show them what they missed out on?4. Heath Miller-He’s had an off few weeks with drops and fumbles. Will he make up for it? He may see several targets this week.Mike Pelaia hosts the website Steel Nation Association Covering the Steelers and helping Children’s Hospital All Day Everyday.

India vs West Indies: Upset KL Rahul determined to be more patient with his…

Powered by Firework Indian opener KL Rahul, after being dismissed for 44 and 38 in each innings of the 1st Test against West Indies, claimed that he was disappointed with his game, but there are a lot of things he is doing right. In the press conference after Day three’s play, Rahul stated that “technique and everything is overrated” and that he needed to show some patience.Advertisement “Technique and everything are overrated – when you get runs everything looks good. So, it was important for me to spend time in the middle. (I am) very disappointed but there are a lot of things I’m doing right. Just need to keep my head down and show some patience,” Rahul said in the media conference.Advertisement The Karnataka batsman looked solid in the first innings until he was dismissed by Roston Chase registering 44 runs to his name, and on Saturday, Rahul failed to execute a paddle sweep against the same bowler, this time being dismissed for 38. His half-century in the single Test against Afghanistan and 149 against England last year, are the only success he has enjoyed in the longest format since the start of 2018.The right-hander then added, “I just have to prolong the good things I’m doing till I get to 35-45. I’m batting well, I looked comfortable in both the innings and my head-space is very good. Happy about a lot of things. If I can keep my patience and keep batting the way I do in the first 60-80 balls, if I continue to do that for 200-250 balls then it’ll obviously benefit me and the team.”Advertisement   Advertisementlast_img read more

Ranieri stands by rotation policy after loss at Chelsea

first_imgEmbed from Getty ImagesLeicester City manager Claudio Ranieri said he had no regrets about resting three key men despite seeing his side easily beaten by Chelsea.The former Chelsea boss dropped Riyad Mahrez, Islam Slimani and Danny Simpson to the bench, with Jeffrey Schlupp, Ahmed Musa and Luis Hernadez all starting.And the Foxes struggled to match the home side with Diego Costa’s early goal setting the Blues on their way and further strikes by Eden Hazard and Victor Moses ensuring a routine victory.Ranieri said he would “make the same decision” to rotate his squad again, with one eye on the Champions League match against FC Copenhagen.He added: “The same because we have a tough match on Tuesday. The Premier League is one month long and the Champions League is two months. I prefer to preserve some players.”Japan striker Shinji Okazaki did not feature after international duty and Ranieri said he wanted to test Chelsea for pace at the back.“We started with 4-4-2 with Musa and Jamie Vardy because we wanted two fast players,” the Italian added.“But when you concede a goal from a corner [for the first goal] again it is clear. You come to Chelsea and your attention must be at the maximum. We made mistakes.“We tried to react and the second half was much better.

Blame Hiccups on Your Inner Fish

first_imgWhy do humans get hernias and hiccups?  Neil Shubin says it’s because of your inner fish.  In the Scientific American series on Darwin, the discoverer of Tiktaalik was trying to show how evolutionary theory sheds light on human anatomy.  He looked back to fish and amphibians and found insight.    “A glimpse inside the body reveals structures left inside of us during the course of evolution, which often seem a confused jumble, with arteries, nerves and other structures taking odd paths to get from one part of the body to another,” he said.  “….To make sense of our own bodies, we need to examine the history we share with everything from microbes and worms to fish and primates.”  In search for clues from “our fishy past and our mammalian present,” he pointed to gonads and nerves for the diaphragm that made more sense in fish anatomy.  Believing that existing patterns were adapted by evolution to changes in the primate body, he claimed that they wouldn’t have been designed this way from scratch, any more than a rewiring job in a building. Our deep history was, at different times, spent in ancient oceans, small streams and savanna plains—and not office buildings, ski slopes or football fields.  This extraordinary disconnect between our past and present means that our body falls apart in certain predictable ways.  The major bones in human knees, backs and wrists arose in aquatic creatures hundreds of millions of years ago.  Is it any surprise, then, that we tear cartilage in our knees and suffer back pain as we walk on two legs or develop carpal tunnel syndrome as we type, knit or write?  Our fish and amphibian ancestors did not do these things.    Take the body plan of a fish, modify it using genes altered from those that build the body of a worm, dress it up to be a mammal, then tweak and twist that mammal to make a creature that walks upright, talks, thinks and has superfine control of its fingers, and we have a recipe for disaster.  We can dress up this fish only so much before paying a price.  In a perfectly designed world—one without an extended historic legacy—we would not have to suffer from the infirmities of hemorrhoids or hernias.  Nor would our buildings be so expensive to renovate.Shubin did not inventory fish maladies, or inquire whether Methuselah ever got a hernia after living 200 times longer than a fish.  His hypothesis seems to suggest that evolution is regressive.  Following his reasoning, the best-designed animals were the earliest ones.  Bad design has led to more maladies the higher one evolves up Darwin’s tree of life.  Maybe natural selection should have left well enough alone and not invented a Shawn Johnson or Michael Phelps.  It terms of design, it’s been all downhill since those happy days under the sea.We can’t help but award multiple SEQOTW prizes this week, with all the contestants vying for attention in Scientific American’s Darwin Extravaganza.  We may have to go to SEQOTD.  Please notice; we don’t laugh at the Darwinists out of some perverse sense of satisfaction at irritating them.  We know they hate being laughed it.  We just can’t help it.  We laugh because they really are funny.  Let’s all sing like the fishies sing:Adaptation always seems better in landlubber’s four-limbed physiqueYou dream of evolving up yonder, but that is a faulty mystique.Just look at the world around you, right here on the ocean floor;Such wonderful things surround you; what more is you lookin’ for?Under the sea, Under the sea, Darwin, it’s better down where it’s wetter, take it from me. Up on the shore they walk on all fours, out in the sun they sweat in they chores, While we is a-breedin’ in de Garden of Eden under the sea.Down here all the fish is happy, as off through the waves they squirts;The man in the office got hiccups, he sad ’cause his hernia hurts.But man in the jungle ain’ lucky, he in for a worser fate;One day when tiger get hungry, guess who’s gon’ be on de plate.Under the sea, Under the sea, That’s why it’s hotter under the water Ya we in luck here down in the muck here Under the sea. They take themselves so seriously – that’s what makes this so much fun.  Thank you, Neil, and all the Scientific American staff, for giving us one of the best comedy acts [hic] in a long time.  OK, we’ll get serious.  See?  We’re serious.  (chortle) (sniff) (snicker)  Honest!  (guffaw)  Sorry.  (pause, deep breath) (snort) (giggle) (choke)  We in luck here down in the muck here, under the sea… Yeeeee, HAW!(Visited 65 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

What’s In A Name? For Startups, It’s Crucial

first_imgIf you’ve been following our Weekend Reading series on Fridays for the last few weeks, you’ve noticed that we’ve been discussing the importance of personal branding for entrepreneurs. But branding is not only an important facet for individuals; for startups, branding is an essential step toward building a successful business. Mint founder Aaron Patzer, who speaks Tuesday at the Future of Web Apps Conference in Miami, Florida, recently discussed with CNET’s Caroline McCarthy how he believes Mint’s branding helped it become a breakout success.Patzer says the company’s original name, “Money Intelligence” was transformed into “Mint,” which just so happens to be a dictionary word already associated with money. But this is no clever coincidence is no small matter, Patzer says having a recognizable, easy to spell name is important these days when trying to make a company name stick in people’s minds.“Choose something with meaning, even if it’s expensive and difficult to acquire, rather based on domain name availability, because otherwise, you’re going to kill word-of-mouth,” Patzer says.Patzer and Mint went through this very process themselves, first purchasing at roughly $3,000 before inking a deal with the owner of for the use of the seemingly valuable domain name in return for equity in Mint’s funding. It turned out to be such a good investment for the original owner that he contributed to future rounds of funding before the company was eventually bought by Intuit last year for $170 million.“It was a three-month negotiation,” said Patzer. “It was one of the most difficult negotiations of my life…that’s how important branding is to me.”Certainly, as we’ve discussed previously, branding reaches far beyond just the name of your service, but Patzer makes an interesting argument for picking an actual dictionary word. It may be difficult to grab a domain name for a common word, but as Patzer explained, securing your brand online is worth the effort and the money. Of course, the best name in the world can’t make up for a poor product, but in the grand scheme of things, names can make a significant impact on success.

Then he is improving, especially in movements without the ball. His movement today was really very good and was done with the right timing.”When we have to play against opponents who are very low, it’s difficult for the striker and wingers to find space. So for us the midfielders’ movement without the ball is very important.”Now we have to work on Loftus-Cheek and on Barkley.
