Guitarist Jimmy Herring then took the lead, firing off a roaring solo on his beautiful PRS guitar. The band harnessed the crowd’s infectious energy, as they moved forward with “Stop Breakin’ Down Blues” and “Time Zones”, before bringing the first set of the weekend to a close with a raucous rendition of “Imitation Leather Shoes”.Following a brief break that gave attendees a chance to refill their cups and take a breather, Widespread Panic came back out to open their second set with “1 x 1”, before Duane Trucks and Sunny Ortiz led the band into “Worry”. With Bell leading the way on vocals, Herring showcased some intricate work on his 6-string, eventually peaking as he reached a monumental high-note. A cover of Vic Chesnutt’s “Aunt Avis” came next, before moving forward with the fan-favorite “Driving Song”. WSP left the scorching hot “Driving Song” open-ended, as they dove head first into “Impossible”, which featured an extended jam on the Grateful Dead’s “The Other One”.Widespread Panic – “Driving Song” > “Impossible” > “The Other One Jam” > “Rock”[Video: Eric Nelson]Widespread Panic landed into “Rock” out of their “The Other One” jam, and finally returned to “Driving Song”, giving the rocker the proper closure.

75 years on, Little League still swings big bat

first_imgSteve Hauser coaches his grandson, Owen Newcomer, before a Little League game in Williamsport, Pa. , May 28, 2014. He is the son of Dick Hauser who played on one of the original Little League teams in 1939, making him the second and Newcomer the fourth generation to play Little League. (AP Photo/Ralph Wilson)WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) — Dick Hauser was an accidental Little Leaguer.Sitting on the front porch of his Williamsport home 75 years ago, the 12-year-old was approached by a man who asked, “Can you play ball?” His name was Carl Stotz, and he was starting a youth baseball league that would supply bats, balls and uniforms — unimaginable luxuries in Depression-era Pennsylvania.After watching Hauser shag flies and field grounders, Stotz invited him to join.“When you’re presented the opportunity to swing a real bat instead of a stick, and play with a real ball instead of something round that had tape on it, it was awesome,” Hauser, now 87, reminisced as he watched his great-grandson — a fourth-generation ballplayer — take the field not far from Little League’s birthplace.Little League began with three teams and Stotz’s big dream: to teach boys the fundamentals of baseball along with values like teamwork and sportsmanship.Today it’s a global enterprise with 2.1 million baseball players and a long-running TV contract for its signature event, the 10-day Little League World Series, played each August in front of 40,000 fans at South Williamsport’s Lamade Stadium and watched by millions more on ABC and ESPN.Little League is marking its 75th anniversary with a new PBS documentary, a partnership with Major League Baseball and a website that’s collecting players’ memories and photos.With thousands of local leagues in 50 states and more than 80 countries, Little League’s appeal remains little changed from June 6, 1939, when the eager boys of Lycoming Dairy and Lundy Lumber met in the inaugural game.Oil the glove. Lace the cleats. Play ball.And maybe learn some life lessons.“If the kids have fun playing the game, the Little League field can really be a classroom,” said Stephen Keener, Little League’s president and CEO.A lumber company clerk who doted on his baseball-loving nephews, Stotz saw a need for field dimensions and rules designed especially for younger boys. He promoted his idea relentlessly, and leagues patterned after Little League spread rapidly throughout the U.S., then internationally.Stotz would later split with Little League in a legal dispute over the direction of the program, and he died in 1992. His family has since reconciled with Little League, contributing many artifacts to its museum.“My father’s goal was to see a boy wearing a baseball hat,” said his daughter, Karen Stotz Myers. “He was thrilled so many children had that opportunity.”A progenitor of today’s heavily organized youth sports, Little League has both reflected and shaped the culture.It becomes a reality show each August, its young all-stars turned into mini-celebrities by saturation TV coverage of the World Series — a spectacle lamented by some critics. In the 1950s, it took a stand for civil rights by confronting dozens of whites-only leagues in South Carolina. Twenty years later, it found itself on the other end of a civil rights battle, begrudgingly admitting girls amid a series of lawsuits.Participation has declined about 20 percent from its 1997 peak of 2.6 million, likely a function of competition from other youth sports and activities. But it’ll probably be around as long as kids like 5-year-old Owen Newcomer and his 7-year-old sister, Isabella, pick up a glove.Little League is in their blood — their mother, grandfather and great-grandfather, Dick Hauser, are alumni.“We just enjoyed being around it, and I couldn’t wait for my kids to get that experience,” said their mother, Jen Newcomer, who played Little League softball.Keener, the CEO, said he’s confident Little League will be around another 75 years.“There’s still the allure of being part of a team, of playing a game that’s very special, and doing it with the kids in your community, that I think keeps Little League relevant today.”last_img read more

SA gives more aid for Haiti recovery

first_img25 November 2010 With quake-ravaged Haiti facing a barrage of problems, including a major cholera outbreak, South Africa is giving the country a further R1-million in aid through the World Health Organisation to assist in its recovery process. “It is our wish that South Africa’s modest contribution would … [go towards] addressing this scourge, as it is known that cholera could effectively be treated if properly coordinated and addressed,” International Relations and Cooperation Deputy Minister Marius Fransman said during a handover ceremony in Pretoria on Wednesday. The donation was made through the World Health Organisation, and was accepted by WHO representative Dr Stella Anyangwe. “It is inspiring to find a country with its various challenges opening its heart to offer help to the most vulnerable outside its borders,” Anyangwe said. “This fund from South Africa is crucial because there is currently a need for clean water and food … Whatever our small contributions, they will all make a difference to the destitute pregnant women and children of Haiti.” Fransman said South Africa would not let up in its efforts to help Haiti, especially after Hurricane Tomas recently hit that country, leaving 21 dead and 6 000 people homeless. The January earthquake claimed an estimated 200 000 lives, leaving over 300 000 injured. The cholera outbreak is the first recorded in Haiti in 50 years. To date, over 19 000 people are been confirmed to be suffering from cholera. According to the Fransman, the death toll from cholera stands at over 1 300. He said the government noted with concern the United Nations’ finding that less than 10 percent of the funds needed for the cholera outbreak had been received. Another worry was the outbreak of violence and its impact on the delivery of much needed emergency aid to vulnerable people. “We wish to express our desire for all to work together during this difficult time to ensure that the human dignity of all people is protected,” Fransman said. “We believe that the answer to the enormous challenge of Haiti is to be found in a continued international response to [its] identified needs.” South Africa pledged to contribute R5-million to the reconstruction efforts of Haiti. Already, R2.5-million has been received through a South African Broadcasting Corporation-hosted telethon. The funds will be contributed to the United Nations Development Fund to be used in Haiti. In the afermath of the January earthquake, South Africa contributed R1-million to Rescue South Africa and its search-and-rescue team which visited Haiti to search for quake survivors. The International Relations Department contributed a further R2.1-million to humanitarian assistance activities of the Food and Agriculture Organisation, World Food Organisation and the International Organisation for Migration.

You Can’t Have a Slow Day

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 3rd book: Eat Their Lunch “The first ever playbook for B2B salespeople on how to win clients and customers who are already being serviced by your competition.” Buy Now How is it possible to have a slow day? How can you have a day where there’s very little to do, one in which you don’t get much done?The very idea that one can have a slow day tells you more about the person that makes that statement than they might imagine. What it suggests is that they believe they need to do the work that shows up as it shows up. They are doing work in real time. That work probably shows up in their email inbox. This is an indication that the person who had a “slow day” is reactive, passively waiting for tasks to appear so that they can complete them. After completing tasks, they wait for another to present them with work to do.Having a slow day is an indication that tasks are be being assigned by someone else. The work isn’t something they have decided to do because it is important, meaningful work.If one were to be proactive, intentional, taking control of their day, it would be impossible to have a slow day. If you are dictating the tempo, then that pace is going to be whatever you set. If you are designing the work that needs to be done, committing to doing it in 60 to 90-minute blocks, and giving your full focus and attention to those tasks that move the needle, you cannot have a slow day. Instead you have a productive day. You have a day where you produce results that matter. You create outcomes that, were you to look at a highlight reel from the week, would make you look like a superstar.Having a slow day isn’t something that need ever happen to you. It is a choice you make. You can be intentional and productive, or you can be something less than those things.last_img read more

NBA investigating Lakers amid George tampering allegation LATEST STORIES Reyes was a visible figure in the Philippines’ campaign in the AVC Asian Senior Women’s Volleyball Championship, communicating with teammates every chance she gets.The captain has shown control and calm while dealing with her teammates, and she seems to have shrugged off any outside negativity regarding her appointment.2. Alyssa doing Alyssa thingsCONTRIBUTED PHOTOAnother point of controversy was Alyssa Valdez’ inclusion to the national team but just like Reyes, Valdez has shown why she deserves to be in the position she’s in.Valdez was the team’s best scorer in the AVC tournament averaging 14 points a game, and that’s enough to prove why she was chosen as the country’s outside hitter for the SEA Games.ADVERTISEMENT Catriona Gray spends Thanksgiving by preparing meals for people with illnesses CONTRIBUTED PHOTOThe 2017 Southeast Asian Games just got going and what better way to pump yourself up for the regional sports showcase than read about a list of seven things to watch out for in Kuala Lumpur.And this is not about the tourist attractions in the Malaysian capital.

Everything Jaja doesCONTRIBUTED PHOTOWhile Valdez leads the team in scoring in the Asian tournament, Jaja Santiago provides the glorious highlights.Santiago has evolved from a towering middle blocker to a versatile hitter that can play from the three spots in front of the net.Santiago can still make those quick kills from the middle and she’s added a deadly running spike that, so far, has been a beauty.4. Kimmy’s sneaky attacksPhoto by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netKim Fajardo is arguably the best setter among her peers as she steered De La Salle to three UAAP titles during her stay.The wily playmaker, though, is not only renowned for her assists but also for her scoring prowess.She won’t put up gaudy scoring numbers like Valdez or Santiago but when called upon Fajardo is willing to do the dirty work.5. Jove’s veteran smarts AVC Asian Senior Women’s Volleyball Championship. CONTRIBUTED PHOTOIf there’s one constant in Philippine volleyball, it has to be Jovelyn Gonzaga donning the Philippine tricolor.Gonzaga is just 25-years-old—for comparison Valdez is 24—but has represented the Philippines in every conceivable volleyball tournament since 2015.She’s captained the team that participated in the 2015 Southeast Asian Games, played in the FIVB Women’s Club World Championship, AVC Asian Women’s Club Championship, and just everything in between.Gonzaga is Philippine volleyball personified.6. Kianna breaking throughCONTRIBUTED PHOTOKim Kianna Dy was initially named as a reserve player of the national team but when Rachel Anne Daquis announced that she would be leaving the team months before the SEA Games the La Sallian was thrust into the main team.And in her first game as a national player, didn’t go the way she had imagined it.She was a nervous wreck when she came in as a substitute in the AVC tournament, but her shot at redemption came just two days after.After her disappointing showing against Hong Kong, Dy showed class as part of the first six that faced Kazakhstan.Dy showed flashes 0f brilliance as one of the better opposite hitters of the country and proved to head coach Francis Vicente that she deserves to be in the main team. 7. The little ones, Denden and DawnPhoto from asianvolleyball.netDenden Lazaro and Dawn Macandili definitely breathe defense.Both Lazaro and Macandili have been prime examples of what a Philippine libero should be.The two defensive aces practically own the ground game and clean up whatever mess their taller teammates couldn’t get to.
