Gary Clark Jr., one of the widely recognized modern torch-bearers of the blues, has already turned heads with his fuzzed-out, reimagined cover of The Beatles‘ “Come Together”. The fiery new take was used as the background music for trailers for the new Justice League film, which hits theaters this weekend. Clark also channeled his inner super hero for his own official music video for the single. Today, Billboard premiered a new pro-shot live video of Clark and his band performing the cover live at the LA Forum (while on tour with Eric Clapton) and, spoiler alert: it rocks even harder than the studio take.As Clark remarked to Billboard about the performance, “All I remember was this was a great night in L.A. playing with [Eric] Clapton,” Clark Jr. tells Billboard. “This version of ‘Come Together’ just felt right. We have a great time playing this song.” Check it out below:Watch Gary Clark Jr. lead his band through his blue-hot reimagining of The Beatles’ “Come Together” live at the L.A. forum via his YouTube page, courtesy of Billboard:Gary Clark Jr.’s Drops Justice League-Themed Music Video For His Heavy Take On “Come Together”With the film receiving its predicted middling-to-negative reviews, Clark may be the most exciting thing about the high-budget super hero release. Clark has previously spoken about his love of various superhero franchises, telling Airows, “Batman is my favorite superhero of all time. My mother had this black robe that I thought would be amazing for a cape. I ran around my neighborhood telling everybody I was Batman. Jump off my roof holding the cape thinking that I would fly and then just hit the ground.”You can also watch the official super-powered music video for Clark’s “Come Together” cover, which serves as the theme for the newly released Justice League film below:[h/t – Billboard]
For the 90th edition of Joe Russo’s Almost Dead‘s Taper Friday, the Grateful Dead-inspired fan-favorite artist has released the soundboard recording from their performance at Eugene, OR’s McDonald Theatre earlier in August. During the performance, the band led by drummer Joe Russo played a scorching four-song first set, as well as standout renditions of “Crazy Fingers” and “Tennessee Jed”.Joe Russo’s Almost Dead opened up their show at Eugene, Oregon’s McDonald Theatre in style. The first set contained four other-worldly jams, kicking off with “The Wheel” which was highlighted by a solo from keyboardist Marco Benevento. “Uncle John’s Band” brought out the best in bassist Dave Dreiwitz, keeping charge through “Dancing In The Streets” which featured a Dire Straits jam on “Money For Nothing”. The set closed with a heart-warming take on “Eyes Of The World”.The second, extended set got going with a “Crazy Fingers” > “Estimated Prophet” > “Ramble On Rose” segment, which featured a “Playin In The Band” tease from guitarist Tom Hamilton and a “Tennessee Jed” tease from Marco Benevento. A crowd-pleasing “Duo Jam” came next, a nod to the earlier days between drummerJoe Russo and keyboardist Marco Benevento, which segued into a “Yazoo Street Scandal” by The Band. From there, “Tennessee Jed” emerged and led into “Music Never Stopped”, highlighted by another barn-burning solo from bassist Dave Dreiwitz. “The Eleven” and “Music Never Stopped Reprise” closed the set. The band returned for a rare take on Muddy Waters‘ “Good Morning Little Schoolgirl” to close the show, which had not been played since the band’s run at Brooklyn Bowl in 2017.You can listen to the audio from the show below, which was released today as the 90th edition of Taper Friday.Joe Russo’s Almost Dead – 8/11/2018 (Full-Show Audio)[Audio: Peter Costello]Setlist: Joe Russo’s Almost Dead | McDonald Theatre | Eugene, OR |8/11/18I: The Wheel @ > Uncle John’s Band #, Dancing In The Streets $ > Eyes Of The WorldII: Crazy Fingers -> Estimated Prophet -> Ramble On Rose ^ Duo Jam -> Yazoo Street Scandal -> Tennessee Jed > Music Never Stopped & -> The Eleven -> Music Never Stopped RepriseE: Good Morning Little Schoolgirl *@ – With a MB Solo# – With a DD Solo$ – With a “Money For Nothing” (Dire Straits) Jam and a DD Solo^ – With a Playin In the Band Tease (TH) a Tennessee Jed Tease (MB)& – With a DD Solo* – Not played by Almost Dead since 2017-10-12 Brooklyn Bowl, Brooklyn, NY a gap of 37 shows
Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Long Island’s veteran lawmaker, the former State Sen. Owen Johnson, who spent 40 years in public service until his retirement in 2012, has died at the age of 85, it was announced today.“Owen Johnson was beloved by his constituents and respected by his colleagues on both sides of the aisle, including eight governors who served during his career in the Senate,” said Sen. Dean Skelos (R-Rockville Centre), the co-leader of the State Senate whose Republican majority counted on Johnson’s continuing support.Johnson had represented the people of Suffolk County in the State Senate from 1972 to 2012, when he finally decided not to run for re-election. At the time he was facing a challenge from long-time Democratic legislator, Rick Montano (D-Brentwood). Instead, Assemb. Phil Boyle became the Republican candidate and won the Senate seat.“Owen Johnson’s leadership helped countless citizens far beyond the boundaries of his senate district,” said Sen. Boyle (R-Bay Shore). “I am proud to say that Owen was not just my senator but he was my mentor and friend. He will be sorely missed.”Up in Albany, Johnson, or “O.J.” as he was known by his colleagues and friends, was the long-time leader of the Senate Finance Committee. “He was a staunch advocate for a state spending cap, which we have strictly adhered to in the past four enacted budgets,” said Skelos in his statement. “Senator Johnson sponsored the original legislation to create the state’s Environmental Protection Fund and the first bill to provide drivers with an insurance discount or a reduction in points for successfully completing a defensive driving course, among many other legislative accomplishments.”Back in his district, Johnson was known for his helping his constituents with their concerns, as well as promoting tourism, strengthening the local economy and boosting the marine fishing industry, as well as preserving the area’s natural resources, which included hosting his annual beach clean-up days. Johnson attended West Babylon Grade School and Babylon High School, according to his official bio, and served in the U.S. Marine Corps and then graduated from Hofstra College in 1956.He reportedly died of natural causes, at home with his family, according to his former chief of staff, Rory Whelan.“Owen Johnson left an indelible mark on the Senate and forged a legacy of extraordinary service to the people of Suffolk County,” said Skelos.He is survived by his wife Christel; two children, Owen and Christen; his son-in-law Dan Tymann; and his granddaughters Eliza and Scarlett.
continue reading » Both banks and credit unions are driven by a mission to help and invest in the communities where they do business. Unfortunately, a consistently poor customer experience often prevents them from serving their members the way they envision. Here are the three biggest issues stopping financial institutions from fixing poor customer service issues.1) Clunky core banking systems. A lot of banks and credit unions rely on decades-old core banking software that doesn’t play well with other, more modern solutions, getting in the way of an ideal customer experience. The hitch is that core systems cost millions to update, are a challenge to convert, and there’s always a risk of losing information or having crucial data get mangled.2) Scattered customer data. Not having customer information stored in one central place makes it difficult to locate crucial customer details when you need them most. This often leads to longer wait times for customers, as employees hunt for critical data before being able to help. For your customer or member on the phone, these waits can feel like an eternity and won’t win you any points. ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
Scoop.co.nz 28 July 2020Family First Comment: “Children under the age of five made up 12 percent of homicide victims, and around one in five were under 18. These victims include the most vulnerable members of society, who too often are killed by those whose job it is to keep them safe.”Shocking. Read our report “CHILD ABUSE & FAMILY STRUCTURE: What is the evidence telling us?”https://www.familyfirst.org.nz/research/child-abuse-2016/The rate of homicide in New Zealand increased in 2018, provisional figures released today show.However overall the statistics for the last 12 years indicate the rate of homicide is trending down.The statistics released today are the official homicide victim statistics for 2007-2017, plus provisional figures for 2018.The report details the homicide of 737 people over an 11-year period across New Zealand.“The report gives insights that are important and of public interest,” says Detective Superintendent Tom Fitzgerald, National Manager: Criminal Investigations.“However, we must not lose sight of the fact that every one of these numbers represents a person whose life has ended prematurely at the hands of another, in often tragic and horrific circumstances.”The 11-year period saw an over-all declining trend in homicide numbers.The first five years from 2007-2011 averaged of 74 homicides a year, while from 2012-2017 this dropped to 61.The lowest annual figure of 50 was in 2017.Provisional figures for 2018 indicate a total of 73 homicides.Of the 737 homicides, around 7 out of 10 were murders.“Over the 11-year period, 62 percent of homicide victims were male and 38 percent were female.Those of European descent appear most frequently in the homicide data, but Maori account for approximately a third of all victims, yet make up only one seventh of New Zealand’s population,” says Detective Superintendent Fitzgerald.“The data also enables us to link victims to the offender with respect to the type of relationship they had.“Women continue to be over-represented in victimisation of those killed by partners or ex-partners – about 75 percent were female and 25 percent were male.“Family harm is a serious issue that affects people of all walks of life, with victims of all ages from infants through to the elderly,” says Detective Superintendent Fitzgerald.“Disturbingly, children under the age of five made up 12 percent of homicide victims, and around one in five were under 18.These victims include the most vulnerable members of society, who too often are killed by those whose job it is to keep them safe.Note: Homicide statistics are not released monthly like other official Police statistics because investigations typically take many months and data on homicides can take up to two years to stabilise.https://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/AK2007/S00554/new-zealand-homicide-report-now-available-online.htm
Lee said mask culture is part ofintangible cultural heritage, which is difficult to preserve. “We are trying tosafeguard and preserve the mask cultures,” she added. Dawon “Ginny” Lee, chief of the IMACOInternational cooperation team, in a press briefing at the SM City BacolodAtrium, said that ahead of the conference, “we are delighted to host (theexhibit) in the City of Smiles.” IMACO is based in South Korea’s AndongCity, which has sisterhood ties with Bacolod. BACOLOD City – More than 400 masks from22 countries were unveiled here in an exhibit, a prelude to the InternationalMask and Culture Organization’s international conference hosted by this city onNov. 5 to 8. The exhibit, being held at the Atrium,will run until Dec. 26 and features masks from five continents – Asia, Europe,America, Africa, and Oceania. Among those from Asia are masks from thePhilippines, particularly the smiling masks of the Bacolod MassKara Festival. The IMACO, consisting of more than 130individual and group organizations from about 60 countries, was founded in 2006to construct archives of mask-related culture that is integral to culturalcommunity symbols. She acknowledged the assistance andsupport of the city government, headed by Mayor Evelio Leonardia and Vice MayorEl Cid Familiaran, in the preparations for the exhibit and the upcomingconference, which is expected to gather some 200 delegates from 17 countries. Through research, preservation, and dataaccumulation, the organization aims to develop an understanding of mask cultureas it focuses on the value that masks promote in terms of freedom, peace, andequality, which in turn provides an approach to understand human values. (With areport from PNA/PN) Photo by Archie Alipao/PN “We’ve known about the MassKara evenbefore and we’re very interested about how you preserve the masks and howeveryone is participating in this event,” Lee said.
