Pulling from their somewhat older catalog with a rendition of “Middle Mountain Towns”, the group then played Bill Monroe’s “Wheel Hoss”, made all the more complete with Paul Hoffman’s performance of the Macarena—a tune that the group gave a lot of love to recently during Strings & Sol.Greensky Bluegrass Cover Widespread Panic, Do “The Macarena” At Strings & Sol [Video]Shifting back to newer songs, next came a rendition of “Fixin’ To Ruin” featuring Guido Batista on woodblock before a cover of The Dillards’ “Reuben’s Train” and the band’s own “Cold Feet” off 2011’s Handguns. Joshua Davis’ “Last Winter In Copper Country” was up next before the group invited out The Infamous Stringdusters’ Chris Pandolfi and Andy Hall to help them close out the set for renditions of Greensky’s “I’d Probably Kill You”, Johnny Cash’s “Will The Circle Be Unbroken”, and The Dusters’ “No More To Leave You Behind”.“I’d Probably Kill You”[Video: Kyle Isaac]“Will The Circle Be Unbroken”[Video: Kyle Isaac]After the sit-in heavy close to set one, Greensky Bluegrass surprised fans once again, opening set two with their debut cover of Dawes’ “Quitter”. After “Living Over”, which featured references to their Johnny Cash tune, “Will The Circle Be Unbroken”, from set one, the group performed “Take Cover” off their newest album, Shouted, Written Down & Quoted, using the tune as a vehicle for a number of “Jeopardy!” theme teases.To close out set two, the band gave the crowd lots of love during a “The Four” sandwich housing Bob Marley’s “Could You Be Loved”. The number also contained quotes from Burt Bacharach’s “What The World Needs Now” and The Beatles’ “All You Need Is Love”, most likely referencing My Morning Jacket’s love-filled New Year’s Eve celebration just outside of Denver at 1st Bank Center, during which MMJ played the two songs back-to-back.“Could You Be Loved”[Video: Kyle Isaac]For the group’s encore, the band played “Frederico”, though changed the lyrics to reference dobro player Anders Beck, with lyrics like “Anders is the name” and “Who is Anders?”“Frederico”[Video: Kyle Isaac]You can check out the setlist from last night’s performance below.Setlist: Greensky Bluegrass | Ogden Theatre | Denver, CO | 1/12/2018Set One: Windshield (1), Middle Mountain Towns, Wheel Hoss (2), Fixin to Ruin (3), Rueben’s Train, Cold Feet, Last Winter in Copper Country (4), I’d Probably Kill You (5), Will the Circle be Unbroken (5), No More to Leave You Behind (5)Set Two: Quitter, Living Over (6), Take Cover (7)(8), Just to Lie > Eat my Dust, Working on a Building, Worried about the Weather > The Four > Could you be Love (9)(10) > The FourEncore: Frederico (11)(12)(1) – Harpua tease(2) – Macarena dance by Paul(3) – w/ Guido Batista (woodblock) x2(4) – Tarpology tease(5) – w/ Chris Pandolfi and Andy Hall(6) – Will the Circle be unbroken tease(7) – Jeopardy theme tease(8) – Contact tease(9) – what the World Needs Now quotes(10) – All you Need is love quotes(11) – Lyric change “Anders is the name…”(12) – Lyric change “Who is Anders”Check out the full gallery from photography Bill McAlaine below.center_img Greensky Bluegrass | Ogden Theatre | Denver, CO | 1/12/2018 | Photos by Bill McAlainelast_img read more

Mission Committee strives to improve faith and spirituality among Belles

first_imgThe Saint Mary’s Student Government Association (SGA) is composed of seven committees, each with its own respective responsibilities and areas of expertise. The Mission Committee strives to improve faith and spirituality among Belles, while maintaining a connection with the Sisters of the Holy Cross, sophomore committee chair Angela Martinez Camacho said in an email. In addition the committee is responsible for maintaining a relationship with Campus Ministry, vice president for mission Judy Fean and SGA as a whole, she said. As committee chair, one of Martinez Camacho’s largest responsibilities is to collaborate with SGA’s alumnae relations chair to plan and execute an annual Heritage Week. According to Martinez Camacho the Mission Committee differentiates itself from other committees by types of events it hosts. “This year we were motivated to collaborate with Campus Ministry for Bible study and offer meditation sessions,” she said. “We try to correlate with the main focus of the committee but generally strive to foster the sisterhood bond. Regardless, we want to give back to the students in recognition of their hard work and dedication to the school and their academics.”Kathleen Hannon, a first-year committee member, said the intimacy of the group is a blessing in disguise. “The Mission Committee is actually only three people, so we have all bonded since the committee is so small,” she said. “This has been really neat as we have created friendships that have allowed us to work better as a group.”Last month the Mission Committee sponsored the “Letters for Sisters” event during which students wrote a letter to a Sister of the Holy Cross. Martinez Camacho said the event had a high turnout rate from students. The committee is also responsible for hosting weekly meditation sessions in Regina North Lounge on Wednesday nights.“We encourage you to take a mid-week break to focus on yourself and wind down from stress,” Martinez Camacho said. Hannon added that it is rewarding to see people attend and enjoy the events. “The mission committee does a great job of bringing a source of light to campus,” she said. Despite the high reward of the events the committee’s largest challenge has been determining what they can and cannot do in light of the pandemic, Hannon said. When asked about the importance of the Mission Committee to the greater Saint Mary’s community, Martinez Camacho said, “We believe students should take the time to focus on their faith and spirituality.” Martinez Camacho also spoke to the Mission Committee’s objective to support both students and Sisters of the Holy Cross.“Mission is perfect for that because we offer opportunities to explore those aspects of life. It is one of our school’s core values,” she said. “And the Sisters play a huge role in our school; we have to show that we appreciate them and are thinking about them, especially in these difficult times.”The Mission Committee’s next event will take place in November.“We are so excited about the first of the month event: [a] sticker handout,” Martinez Camacho said. “We designed these cute stickers with a motivational quote to inspire Belles for November, as we enter the homestretch of the semester.”Tags: mission committee, Saint Mary’s SGA, Sisters of the Holy Crosslast_img read more

India want ‘phenomenal’ Pant to match daredevil batting with discipline

first_imgNEW DELHI, India (Reuters) – India’s newly appointed batting coach Vikram Rathour has joined head coach Ravi Shastri in demanding more discipline from exciting stumper-batsman Rishabh Pant.Pant’s six-hitting ability makes him a limited-overs asset, but Shastri in a recent interview said the 21-year-old’s penchant for throwing away his wicket has occasionally let the team down.The Delhi player is perceived as Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s natural successor in limited-overs cricket when the former captain eventually hangs up his gloves, but Rathour insisted Pant must improve his shot selection.“Rishabh is a phenomenal player, no doubt about that,” Rathour told reporters in Mohali ahead of the second Twenty20 International against South Africa today. “Of course he needs to sort out his game-plan a little more. He needs to bring in a little bit of discipline to his cricket.”With next year’s Twenty20 World Cup in mind, Rathour extended the message to all young members of the side that fearless cricket did not mean reckless cricket. “What the team management is asking from them is fearless cricket – having clear game-plans and playing with intent, backing your strengths. At the same time, you cannot be careless,” the former India opener said.“I’m sure they are smart enough to understand that.” India will also play three Tests against South Africa next month, when limited-overs stalwart Rohit Sharma may reinvent himself as a Test opener.Rohit smashed a record five centuries at this year’s 50-overs World Cup, but the white-ball stalwart has managed only 27 sporadic Test appearances. Rathour said 32-year-old Rohit has the game to succeed across formats, which would be a massive boost for the side.“He has done so well as an opener in white ball cricket, so I don’t see any reason why he can’t do well in red ball cricket as well, provided we provide him enough opportunities,” Rathour said.“If he comes good, it will be a huge asset for the team. Somebody of his experience, the kind of cricket he plays, if he plays at the top of the order, it will be a huge thing.”last_img read more

MLB All-Star Game 2019: Blue Jays rookie phenom Vladimir Guerrero Jr. to compete in HR Derby

first_img Related News Blue Jays rookie phenom Vladimir Guerrero Jr. will participate in the Home Run Derby as part of the 2019 MLB All-Star Game weekend in July, the team announced Sunday. Guerrero will have a chance to showcase the strong power he’s shown throughout the season as the rookie has eight home runs in 53 games with the Blue Jays. Guerrero, 20, has shown promise after facing a setback to start the season. Many hoped that the young star would be part of the Blue Jay’s opening day roster, but he suffered an oblique injury during spring training camp that ruled out the possibility. Entering Sunday’s game against the Royals, Guerrero has a .251 batting average with 23 RBIs and eight home runs.

Woe for Wenger as Man City cruise past Arsenal again

first_imgLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Beleaguered Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger called on his players to show they can meet the club’s standards after a second humbling 3-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester City in five days on Thursday.City moved 16 points clear at the top of the Premier League as fresh from claiming their first silverware of the Pep Guardiola era in the League Cup final on Sunday, the visitors scored three times in the opening 33 minutes as Arsenal disintegrated once more in front of a sparse crowd at the Emirates.Bernardo Silva, David Silva and Leroy Sane were on target to inflict a third straight defeat on Arsenal and leave them 10 points adrift of the Premier League top four in sixth place. The lines around the pitch were painted blue ahead of kick-off in case an expected snow shower covered the field.Unfortunately for the home fans that did brave the cold, that was the only novelty on a night of familiar failings from Wenger’s men, who have now lost seven times in 12 games this year.“Do you want the fans to be happy when you are 3-0 down? I am surprised you are surprised,” continued Wenger.“It was combination of the weather conditions and the fact we had a big disappointment on Sunday.”Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2 And a night to forget for the Gunners was complete when £56 million ($79 million) club record signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang saw his second-half penalty saved by Ederson.“You go up by stairs and come down by the lift, that is what happens with confidence,” said Wenger. “We have to show we have the level to be at Arsenal football club.”However, the Frenchman again refused to accept it is inevitable that his 22-year stay as boss is coming to a sad end.center_img “I am confident that nothing is permanent in life,” added Wenger. “It is down to how you respond and the focus and effort you show to turn things around.”Sub-zero temperatures and the apathy caused by Arsenal’s display at Wembley on Sunday saw thousands of seats go unoccupied at the Emirates.last_img read more

The academies of RCD Espanyol de Barcelona are now on every continent

first_imgAdvertisement 2zNBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs4f0Wingsuit rodeo📽Sindre E45v3( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) 9275Would you ever consider trying this?😱hxi4Can your students do this? 🌚hfq7wRoller skating! Powered by Firework The Catalan club is growing its global brand through international academies, the latest of which is in Australia. In addition it has created football camps programme with 29 events already held this year.Advertisement Advertisement The academy of RCD Espanyol de Barcelona is not just a breeding ground for future talent but an extension of its brand. Beyond its seven training centers across Spain, the club has invested in the creation of a global model, opening centers around the world that will introduce the club not just to new players, but to potential new fans.Advertisement This internationalization model kicked off in the 2016/17 season with the launch of two academies and the growth has been gradual since then, reaching the current position of 11 RCDE Academy sites.As Albert Saus, the manager of the club’s schools and academies department, explained: “We work to create quality local projects around the world and the academy is at the heart of that. We have now reached Oceania, in the city of Brisbane, through an academy that will start activity at the beginning of February 2020.” Global academies and football campsThe objective of these academies is to take the identity of RCD Espanyol de Barcelona academy to new territories, where boys and girls between the ages of four and 15 can improve their skills and the 119-year story of the club can be shared.With the academy in Brisbane, the club is now present across all continents. In addition to Brisbane, RCD Espanyol de Barcelona is also based in Algiers and Tizi Ouzou (Algeria), in Saitama (Japan), in New Jersey (USA), in Baghdad (Iraq), in Helsinki (Finland), in Stockholm (Sweden) and in Shanghai, Shouguang and Hunan (China).The numbers from the beginning of this current season show that 1,085 boys and girls are training with the club.Associated with the academies, there has also been major growth of the club’s RCDE Football Camps, standalone training events designed to engage new playing talent around the world. When this project started three years ago, the club held six camps abroad. This year, 29 have already been held. Extending its global reach further, these camps have been carried out in the USA, Canada, Colombia, France, Switzerland, Sweden, Finland, Kazakhstan and Japan among others.All of this growth means that RCD Espanyol de Barcelona is the LaLiga team with the second-most academies that are supervised by club directors. Growth in ChinaWith three of its international academies in China, this country holds a particular relevance for the Catalan club. Alongside its Chinese ownership, this year’s signing of Chinese forward Wu Lei has helped to boost the club’s standing and presence here. It opened its third academy in China in the months following the signing as interest in the club grew rapidly. In addition, a new RCD Espanyol de Barcelona fan group was created in Shanghai.As Saus explained: “Since Rastar Group arrived at the club, our international presence has accelerated, although not only in China. The signing of Wu Lei helped us on the pitch and he also became an ambassador for the club in China. This goes in tandem with the three club academies in China.” Consolidation in North America and other opportunitiesOutside of Asia, the club maintains significant ambitions for growth and is working on consolidating the club’s presence in North America in the near future. At the same time, it is also studying opportunities in areas of growing interest such as India or Central Africa.For Saus, this expansion through youth football is helping to bring people from around the world closer to the club. “We want to build brand identity through our youth football because that helps to generate a sense of belonging,” he says. “We are seeing more and more members of our international programmes joining our club in Spain or becoming fans, which increases our global network significantly.” Advertisementlast_img read more
