Umphrey’s McGee And Pigeons Light Up The Lawn At White River State Park In Indy [Photos/Audio]

first_imgLoad remaining images On Saturday night, Umphrey’s McGee and Pigeons Playing Ping Pong headed to Indianapolis, IN’s Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn at White River State Park. The evening got started with a fun and funky opening set from Pigeons, who made the most of their shorter-than-normal hour-long slot. After a double-“time” opening sequence of “Burning Up My Time” > “Time To Ride,” the band delivered well-played versions of “Ocean Flows” and “Fun In Funk.” Finally, they closed with their go-to “Spacejam” > “The Hop” > “F.U.” medley.Just after 7:45, Umphrey’s took the stage, starting with “Jekyll & Hyde” before moving into an extended”Phil’s Farm.” A “Wellwishers” > “No Diablo” pairing came next, followed by a well-played “North Route.” After taking the northbound path, the band played an appropriately juxtaposed (and impressively improvised) “Blue Echo” into “Red Tape,” before closing set one with “Wife Soup.”The band took the stage with purpose for set two, delivering 15+ minutes of “Bridgeless” glory to begin a non-stop second frame. From there, the Umphrey’s flowed smoothly into a hard-rocking, jammed-out “Ocean Billy,” which eventually gave way to “Kimble.” Next up was FF, followed by a nearly 20-minute, hard-hitting rendition of “Draconian,” which finally relented into a “Bridgeless” reprise, bookending the set to the delight of the Indiana crowd. When the band returned for their encore, Brendan Bayliss sincerely thanked the thoroughly satisfied crowd, before sliding into and swinging “August” to send fans on their way.Below, you can view a stunning gallery of photos from Umphrey McGee’s memorable Indianapolis performance courtesy of the ever-impressive Keith Griner of Phierce Photo.

Israel’s Netanyahu under precautionary COVID-19 quarantine

first_imgVideo surveillance The Knesset statement said that lawmakers and parliamentary employees have already been instructed to follow the health ministry’s orders and self-quarantine if they were in Paluch’s vicinity.The Knesset said it was offering footage from its surveillance cameras to the health ministry for them to establish where and when Paluch had been in the building, so that health professionals could decide on appropriate measures.Israel, which has nearly 4,700 confirmed COVID-19 cases, has imposed severe restrictions to contain the spread of the virus, including a total ban on non-essential movements. Netanyahu’s office stressed that he has had limited inter-personal contact in recent weeks, conducting “most of his meetings via video conferencing from his residence.”The news comes as Netanyahu, 70, is widely expected to agree on an emergency unity government with his election rival Benny Gantz to tackle the coronavirus pandemic. The two fought three bitter but inconclusive elections over the past year, with neither securing enough support to form a viable coalition government. Gantz was given the task of forming a government following March 2 elections but there was no guarantee he would succeed where he had previously failed, especially given rifts within the anti-Netanyahu bloc. Gantz, a centrist, was elected speaker of Israel’s parliament last week and has committed to backing an emergency unity government with Netanyahu, citing the need to combat COVID-19.Negotiations on Sunday between Gantz and Netanyahu failed to yield a final agreement, with no fresh talks between the sides officially reported since.Netanyahu, in office since 2009, was in January charged with bribery, fraud and breach of trust, but the start of his trial has been delayed by the pandemic.He denies the charges. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu went into precautionary quarantine on Monday after one of his staff tested positive for coronavirus, as the veteran premier seeks a unity government to combat the pandemic. Netanyahu’s office stressed the quarantine was strictly a precaution as the veteran right-winger had not been in recent proximity to the unwell member of staff.Late Monday, Netanyahu’s office announced that the premier, his family and staff had tested negative for the virus, noting however that the premier would “remain in quarantine until receiving instructions from the health ministry.” A statement by the Knesset, Israel’s parliament, identified the staffer as Rivka Paluch, Netanyahu’s parliamentary aide, noting three dates she had been in the building.Netanyahu’s office had said that according to “a preliminary assessment…there is no need for the prime minister to be quarantined, as he did not come into close contact with the individual and did not personally meet with that person.”  “Over the past two weeks the two were never in the same room at the same time,” it added. The statement further noted that the “epidemiological investigation” was ongoing.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Campaign groups urge involvement

first_imgYoung voters are a key demographic that both campaigns have worked to win over, and student groups on college campuses are a key part of that effort.Leaders of USC Trojans for Romney and Trojans for Obama said their groups are committed to serving their respective candidates and seeking to win over as many student voters as possible.Alex Yebri, the president of USC Trojans for Romney and a senior majoring in political science, said his group is working to increase involvement on campus.“USC Trojans for Romney is working tirelessly to lend enthusiastic conservative and independent college students the chance to engage in one of the most important elections of our generation,” said Yebri. “Most importantly, we are working to bring political awareness to the student body at a time when college students feel the pain of high unemployment, trillion dollar deficits and broken promises.”Both groups plan to achieve greater student engagement through a series of events. During the national conventions, for example, the two groups helped sponsor screenings of the respective presidential acceptance speeches.“We will also co-host screenings of the presidential and vice presidential debates with the Unruh Institute of Politics, after which our members will have an opportunity to speak on panels to provide analysis on the state of the campaigns,” said Kaya Masler, president of Trojans for Obama.The two groups work closely with the Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics, helping it plan and promote programs like “The Road to the White House,” a series of panels leading up to the election focusing on different political issues each week. The panels take place every Wednesday at noon in either the Ronald Tutor Campus Center Forum or the Rosen Family Screening Theatre. Dan Schnur, director of the Unruh Institute, said the panels are meant to provide students with analysis.“In a world that’s dominated by Fox and MSNBC, it’s very easy to only listen to those people who you already agree with,” Schnur said. “We put together these panel discussions to give students and faculty an opportunity to hear a wide range of voices across the political spectrum.”Schnur also emphasized the importance of breaking students out of a passive mindset.“We believe strongly in the principle of student participation, not just as audience members, but as panelists,” Schnur said. “We believe that it’s important for students to be part of the conversation.”In addition to the campaigning on campus, both USC Trojans for Romney and Trojans for Obama plan to travel to Nevada, a key battleground state.“We will be traveling to Las Vegas, Nevada twice in October to register voters and persuade key voters in the swing state,” Masler said.According to Yebri and Masler, both groups will be involved in registering voters and making phone calls to potential voters.“In the weeks leading up to the election, Trojans For Romney will be active in registering voters,” Yebri said. “Our organization will also be holding call nights.”Additionally, Trojans for Obama plan to up the number of phone calls they make to potential voters.“Last semester our organization made over 3,000 calls for the Obama campaign,” Masler said. “We have upped our goal to 5,000 for this semester and hope to register as many new and old voters, on and off campus, as possible.”Yebri stressed the importance of this election for students and said their groups provide a forum for students to participate in discussion about the election.“We are facing an election that mirrors that of 1980,” Yebri said. “People are struggling as unemployment has been over 8 percent for 43 months, wages have dropped and half of college graduates can’t find work,” Yebri said. “Trojans For Romney is a venue for students to speak their mind about the future of this country and provides students an opportunity to make a difference.” With the United States presidential election only 55 days away, both President Barack Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney have ramped up their campaigns in an attempt to win over voters from as many demographics as possible.Engagement · Trojans for Obama, pictured above, and USC Trojans for Romney focus on getting students involved in the presidential race. – Photo courtesy of Trojans for Obamalast_img read more

Alex Verdugo’s rehab assignment ‘in a holding pattern’ due to back pain

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies LOS ANGELES — After one game with the Ogden Raptors, Alex Verdugo’s rehab assignment is “in a holding pattern” due to renewed soreness in his back.Verdugo had three plate appearances for the rookie-level Raptors on Monday, walking twice. He did not play Tuesday and was scratched from the lineup on Wednesday with the back issue, a problem that has followed him throughout the season.“He didn’t reinjure himself. It was more the back couldn’t get loose,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said.“Right now, we’re in a holding pattern.” Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Verdugo actually went on the Injured List on Aug. 6 with a strained oblique muscle in his right side. But it was the ongoing back problem that resurfaced in Ogden.“It’s the back. The oblique is in good shape,” Roberts said. “I think early on he hurt it in Tampa initially (in late May) and it’s sort of been lingering and he’s played through it. The oblique is what initially put him on the IL. But the back is something we’re trying to get past.”The original plan when he left Arizona on Sunday was for Verdugo to play with the Raptors in the Pioneer League playoffs, rejoin the Dodgers during the weekend and be added to the active roster for next week’s six-game trip starting in Baltimore. That is “unlikely” now, Roberts said.The Dodgers will “pivot” away from the rehab assignment with Ogden and Verdugo will likely head back to Arizona for treatment and prepare for a return to the Dodgers’ roster by taking at-bats at Camelback Ranch.Roberts said this setback does not mean Verdugo won’t be ready for a possible postseason role. The Dodgers have two off days in a five-day stretch, one before and one after the Giants series, and five in just under three weeks.ALSORight-hander Dustin May threw to hitters Wednesday afternoon and said he felt “all good” with no after-effects from being struck in the head by a line drive on Sunday. Roberts said May’s status will be re-evaluated before the weekend series. …Infielder Max Muncy took ground balls again Wednesday and began swinging at soft toss in the batting cage. Roberts said Muncy could be ready to play in a game “sometime next week.”UP NEXTThe Dodgers are off Thursday.Giants (TBD) at Dodgers (LHP Clayton Kershaw, 13-4, 2.96 ERA), Friday, 7:10 p.m., SportsNet LA (where available), 570 AMcenter_img How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco “Right now, there’s no concern,” Roberts said. “With Alex, with his mechanics, bat-to-ball, I don’t think it’s going to take him a whole lot of time. There’s also the thought of being able to stand in the outfield for a couple hours, a few hours to kind of build that up.“As far as time left on the calendar, we still have plenty of it.”HILL RETURNLeft-hander Rich Hill is scheduled to throw to hitters on Friday for the first time since he suffered a flexor tendon injury on June 19. Hill will simulate two innings, throwing approximately 15 pitches in each inning and 30 total.“Assuming that goes well we’ll pencil him in somewhere the following week in a big-league game,” Roberts said.Hill said that pencil has circled next Thursday in Baltimore as the target for his return to action.“If I was going to go off my last time off a mound (a bullpen session Monday), yeah, everything feels good. Friday will be kind of a good test,” Hill said.“I would say it’s right on time. You can never predict. It’s always based on how your body heals. I’ve always been a pretty quick healer, coming back whether it was from surgery or my knee. Everything has always healed pretty well. So I wasn’t surprised by the healing process. But you still never know.”If Hill starts every fourth or fifth day starting next Thursday, he would be able to make four starts before the end of the regular season, increasing his pitch count to the point where he would be ready to start in the first round of the playoffs.“If you look at it that way, you could say it’s like a spring training,” Hill said. “That’s how to look at it and we take it one at a time.”PITCHING PLANSLeft-hander Clayton Kershaw will start on Friday against the San Francisco Giants on five days’ rest. Right-hander Walker Buehler is scheduled to start on Sunday, also on five days’ rest.Roberts said Saturday’s start is “TBD.” It could be either Ross Stripling or Tony Gonsolin, both of whom were available to pitch out of the bullpen on Wednesday.Related Articles Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start last_img read more

Multiple Faiths Rally For Justice, Climate Change

first_imgBy John BurtonRED BANK –
Different faiths, different religions but one message—we must work to save our planet.“I never protested in the ’60s,” said Judy Reichard, a Manalapan resident. “So, I’m doing it in my 70s.”Reichard, joined an estimated 100 from a wide array of area churches, as they came together Sunday evening on the front lawn of the United Methodist Church of Red Bank, 247 Broad St., for a prayer service and candlelight vigil. The purpose was to raise awareness for social justice issues and what the participants believe is the growing threat posed by climate change, in preparation of the United Nations’ climate change conference scheduled for Paris in December.It was interfaith but the timing also coincided with the arrival of Pope Francis, who stepped foot on American soil for the first time as his plane touched down at Andrews Area Base Tuesday. Pope Francis called on Catholics around the world to make social justice and global warning a moral imperative.The Rev. Jessica Brendler-Naulty, the Methodist church’s pastor, was responsible for organizing the event, said she had been an environmental science teacher for about a year before attending the seminary.In addition to Brendler-Naulty, the gathering featured comments from a Roman Catholic priest, a Baptist minister, a Muslim woman, a Sikh man and others, who offered their shared views about expressing the importance of informing the public about the issue, which for them has taken on a moral dimension.Brendler-Naulty said she was encouraged by Pope Francis’ recent encyclical on the environment, with its pronouncements about the dangers of climate change and the impact wealthier nations are having on the environment of poorer ones. “He set the moral compass that we’re all in this together,” was Brendler-Naulty’s takeaway from the pope’s words. “And we can take strength from it.”“It’s for us to all work together,” said Red Bank resident Patty Casey who participated in the service. “We’re all on this planet together.”“We are the stewards,” of the planet, said Esmat Mahmoud, a board member of the Monmouth Center of World Religion and Ethical Thought, a Lincroft-based group that celebrates cultural and religious diversity. On our environment, “It is up to us for its safe keeping,”Mahmoud added. “God has given us the ability to take care of this earth.”Reichard said her children and grandkids would describe themselves as environmentalists. She embraced the message one day accompanying her son to a Starbucks for coffee. Her son asked Reichard if she remembered to bring her reusable cup. She didn’t, she recalled, with her son telling her she really didn’t need the coffee.“That’s what I would like people to understand,” Reichard explained, “that we can all make a difference. Even the little stuff helps.”“We’re hoping for a continued conversation,” on this topic, is Brendler-Naulty’s wish.For Amy Goldsmith it’s about getting the message out. Goldsmith, who lives in Red Bank and is executive director of Clean Water Action, a statewide environmental group, asked participants to take to social media and spread the word, to inform others. “Information is power,” she told the gathering.last_img read more

Dear Santa: Rotary Club Answers Wishes

first_imgBy John BurtonRED BANK — Santa Claus is answering the letters from children.Spoiler Alert: It’s not really Santa. But this holiday season members of the Red Bank Rotary Club have taken on the responsibility of acting as Santa’s helpers by answering the letters left by kids in the designated “mailboxes” – letters that expressed the sweetness of the young as well as, at times, tugging at the heartstrings.The two locations, one at the borough’s U.S. Post Office, 171 Broad St., on the east side, and at the borough pocket park, Ralph “Johnny Jazz” Gatta Park, at the Drs. James Parker Boulevard/Shrewsbury Avenue intersection, collected about a total of 107 letters from area youth to the jolly, chubby North Pole resident.Among them were about 23 written in Spanish, which will be answered by employees of the borough Parks and Recreation Department, according to David Prown, a borough resident and club member. Unfortunately, there were a considerable number without return addresses and no way to send Santa’s response, Prown said.It was Prown who first proposed that the club undertake the holiday task. Prown, long known for his community activism and efforts for area youth, said he wondered “Whatever happens to these letters?”“I heard, generally, that they went unanswered,” he said, believing it would be a good project for the local Rotary Club. “And they were thrilled we were taking ownership,” he explained, referring to the parks and rec department.“What better way to bring a little joy into the holiday season?” asked club member Bill Donnelly, Middletown.The Red Bank Rotary Club responded to children’s letters to Santa Tuesday. Photo: John BurtonDonnelly, Prown and the others gathered Tuesday night at the Maple Avenue offices of the Kerr Agency, a commercial insurance firm to write the responses.“This is great. This is what it’s all about,” added club member and borough resident Ken Duffy.The Rotary Club’s motto has always been “Service Above Self,” members noted. And while the larger organization works on substantial fundraising and big projects, this little group of local members works on smaller efforts to help the community, Donnelly explained. “Our goal is to become the go-to people for small service efforts,” such as this, he said. “It builds a legacy of service.”The letters came from kids in Red Bank and those just traveling through, with some letters having return addresses as far away as Toms River in Ocean County.The plan for the club members was to take what personal information they could glean from the letters (the children’s names, names of siblings and parents, and so on) and incorporate it into the response. The returning letters are left pretty general and don’t make any promises, explaining how busy Santa and the elves are this time of year, telling the kids “I’m so proud to see you on the good/nice list” and how happy Santa Claus is in be visiting their homes next week.The youngsters for the most part ask for what you would expect from a 2015 Christmas list: iPhone 6, Xbox video game consoles, DVDs of “Frozen” and Hoverboards. A number of girls were hoping for Shopkins, cute, grocery-themed collectables that are very hot this year. Another boy asked for “Everything ‘Star Wars,’” closing the letter with “and hurry.”One child attached a Toys “R” Us discount coupon, so Santa could get a break on the cost. “You got to love this,” observed a chuckling Justin Sonta, Middletown. Another letter Sonta read and responded to, said “I was really good this year even when I’m fighting with my sister.”Club member Barbara Nevius, a Red Bank resident, read a letter from a little boy who was asking for warm clothes for himself and his two sisters, telling Santa it’s always cold in their home.Another young child asked for a box of pencils, Prown noted.“That touches you,” Prown said.“You kind of wish you could go and deliver these things to some of these kids,” Middletown resident and club member Justin Hoffman acknowledged.Any requests for clothing will be forwarded to the Red Bank Police Benevolent Association (PBA) which will try to answer the need, Prown said.Club members said this will become an annual effort for them. “It’s about doing little things that can have an impact,” Donnelly believes.last_img read more
