Marco Benevento Strolls Through Sacramento For California Tour Opener

first_imgWith pride and perhaps a little deliriousness, Marco Benevento shared with the Sacramento crowd that Wednesday night’s show was the band’s 14th in as many days.The spring tour began in Colorado, powered through the Pacific Northwest and maintained its potency into the California leg and its final four shows as Benevento, along with new bassist Karina Rykman and drummer Andy Borger, put on an intimate rager at Harlow’s Nightclub.The trio opened with the seven-piece ballad “The Story of Fred Short,” firing off a psych rock dance party that roped in distant bodies from the lounge area along the wall and set the tone for the night. The organic personality shift from an edgy punk rock intro, to the joyous sounds of “Walking With Tyrone,” to the blustering craving of “Live a Certain Life,” are a testament to Benevento’s evolution over the years from solely instrumentals to, now, vocal-heavy indie rock ‘n roll.Dressed like a pianist in a Tim Burton flick and embracing every aspect of the frontman persona, Benevento kept the mood light and the sparse crowd engaged. He even made the short leap from stage to floor and danced with the rug-cutters in the front while Rykman and Borger flashed their ever-evolving tightness with rib-sticking grooves.After putting the Fred Short story to rest, the setlist bounced around Benevento’s canon with older staples like “Greenpoint” and an improv-filled “Limbs of a Pine” set closer that was elevated sonically with original lyrics and physically with Benevento jumping all over the small stage.A head-banging cover of “Heartbeats” by The Knife was a reprieve from some of the his newer staples like “Dropkick,” the single off The Story of Fred Short, and Swfit’s “At the Show,” which was sprinkled between a half-dozen bows as the double encore and finale.Rykman’s influence on the band and its punk-like atmosphere is easy to pick up. With usual bassist Dave Dreiwitz occupied with Ween’s return to the road, she’s brought in a youthful edge and intensified the aftertaste to a Benevento performance as he’s embraced the weird over the last few years.She even took the lead on an unexpected and refreshing take on “Pepper” by Butthole Surfers – the first of their two encores. As part of the band’s all-white ensemble, Borger and Rykman wore matching shirts that read “WE’RE USING TIME FOR FUN” in black letters. With Benevento continuing to test the limits of the keys and find his own as the performance personality skyrockets to new heights, it’s clear that they are.[cover photo by @_erin_colleen]last_img read more

Hammers wait on Jenkinson fitness

first_img Club-record signing Andy Carroll has already been sidelined for up to four months with an ankle injury, having missed a similar spell at the start of the previous campaign, while fans are still opposed to the style of football they have seen from the Hammers this pre-season. Allarydce has also had to contend with midfielder Ravel Morrison’s arrest on allegations of two counts of common assault on his ex-girlfriend and her mother. The England Under-21 international was freed on Monday after originally being denied bail and is due to appear at Manchester Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, with his future at West Ham potentially in question depending upon the outcome. Sunday’s defeat to Malaga was the third loss in four games, with only a penalty shoot-out win over hosts Schalke on Saturday bucking the trend. With Carroll sent home from New Zealand, West Ham went on to lose both games they played on the tour, having drawn at Stevenage and Ipswich beforehand. A final pre-season friendly against Sampdoria on Saturday could see new signing Enner Valencia make his debut, with London rivals Tottenham the first visitors to Upton Park when the new Barclays Premier League campaign gets under way a week later. West Ham manager Sam Allardyce will be hoping his pre-season woes are not set to continue as the club await an assessment on an injury to defender Carl Jenkinson. The 22-year-old Arsenal loanee, signed just last Thursday, endured a debut to forget as the Hammers lost 2-0 to Malaga in the Schalke 04 Cup on Sunday. Jenkinson conceded a first-half penalty before a hamstring injury forced him off and now Allardyce will be hoping for a rare dose of good news as he sweats on the results of a scan to see if the issue will rule the England full-back out of the start of the new season. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Raptors spoil home coming of Kid Canada

first_imgBy Bruce Fuhr, TND SportsOnly in Vancouver, with hockey starved fans awaiting the puck to drop on the new NHL season Saturday, would a hockey game break out at a NBA preseason basketball game – with fights both on the court and in the stands.On Captain Canada’s home coming at the newly crowned Rogers Arena, the Toronto Raptors out-slugged, out-hussled and simply embarrassed the Phoenix Suns 127-78 in NBA exhibition play before a sellout crowd of, well, hungry hockey fans.The game was the first test of the new-look Raptors.No Chris Boch. He left T.O. for greener pastures in South Florida to play with King James and D-Wade.Hedo Turkoglu? He was on the other team’s bench. Good thing, he was booed every time the ball touched his hands by the Canuck . . . I mean Raptor fans.This night belonged to the new-look Raptors, stealing the thunder of B.C. boy Steve Nash. Kid Canada was limited to nine points in just over two quarters of play.Sparked by the all-round team play, and the 20-point performance of Lina Kleiza, the Raptors looked like mid-season form in their season-opening exhibition game.Even the Vancouver Canucks players sitting in the front row had to be impressed with the knock-them-down-drag-em-out contest.DeMar DeRozen added 16 points while Joey Dorsey had 13 points and 10 rebounds.But while this game lacked strong basketball play, it did have more in the way of a hockey game. Player after player made way to the locker room to patch up gashes to the face.Suns’ forward Grant Hill and Reggie Evans of the Raptors were both ejected after picking up two technical fouls in the span of two minutes early in the third quarter.Suns center Robin Lopez, after requiring stitches in the second quarter, was quickly sent to the showers in the third period after picking up four fouls, and a technical.Both teams experienced poor shooting performances so the bulk of the work was done in the trenches under the boards, with the Raptors winning out at both ends following a slow start offensively.DeRosan and Dorsey both put the crowd on their feet with a pair of thunder jams in the face of Suns’ defenders.All in all this was a good night for Canada.Fans got treated to some NBA entertainment.The people in the seats got to salute the Canuck players when the left early to beat the traffic.Except most fans came to watch Kid Canada, Victoria’s Steve Nash and not Canada’s new NBA basketball team from [email protected]last_img read more

Investigators pour cold water on MH370 fire theory

first_imgRead MH370 and now for the facts. Air safety investigators have scotched a theory that discoloured debris found in Madagascar was subject to intense fire and say they so far have not been able to link it to missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.Two items of fibreglass-honeycomb composite wreckage recovered in February near Sainte Luce, on the south-east coast of Madagascar, were brought to Australia this month by debris hunter Blaine Gibson amid speculation they had been burnt by fire on board the aircraft.But an analysis by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau found that the areas of dark discolouration which prompted the speculation were related to resin that had been applied to the items and was not the result of exposure to heat or fire.Investigators were also unable to find any identifiers such as parts or serial numbers on ether item that would allow them to be identified and are still attempting to determine their origin. A burnt smell from the larger piece debris was traced to three small marks identified as damage resulting from localised heating..“The origin and age of these marks was not apparent,’’ the report said.  “However, it was considered that burning odours would generally dissipate after an extended period of environmental exposure, including salt water immersion, as expected for items originating from 9M-MRO (the tail number of the MH370 aircraft).’’Australian Transport Minister Darren Chester the debris had been examined with the agreement of the Malaysian government. “At this stage it is not possible to determine whether the debris is from MH370 or indeed even a Boeing 777,’’ Mr Chester said.“What is known is that contrary to speculation there is no evidence the item was exposed to heat or fire.’“Further work will be undertaken in an attempt to determine the origin of the items, specifically whether they originated from a Boeing 777 aircraft.’’The search for MH370 is due to wind down at the end of this year if no compelling evidence is found to warrant it being continued.ATSB investigators have also been studying a flap from MH370 and have commissioned drift and marine ecology studies in their continuing attempts to solve the mystery.last_img read more

South Africa is ready for nuclear new build

first_img23 July 2015It was ready to support South Africa’s nuclear new build programme using its existing capacities, the South African Nuclear Energy Corporation (Necsa) told Parliament’s portfolio committee on energy yesterday.The committee was undertaking an oversight visit to Necsa’s Pelindaba facilities, in Tshwane. Chief executive officer Phumzile Tshelane said Necsa possessed nuclear standard manufacturing capabilities, and listed its recent achievements.It had exported nuclear reaction chambers to Russia and had supplied products to other international clients such as France’s Areva and Alstom. The state-owned company also manufactured components for the Medupi and Kusile coal-fired power stations.Tshelane said that Necsa would support localisation as part of ensuring that the new build programme resulted in the development of a nuclear industry in South Africa. Necsa also ran an acclaimed Learning Academy from which engineers, artisans and other technically skilled personnel graduated each year.“We are proud of the contribution we are making already in developing critical skills for South Africa, which will also be relevant to the new build programme,” he said.In response to a question on the costs of the new build, the Necsa chief brushed aside the R1-trillion figure, saying it was unrealistic in global comparison.Supply of nuclear fuelNecsa had also undertaken feasibility studies on the production and supply of nuclear fuel to the envisaged fleet of nuclear reactors to be procured by South Africa. This would ensure that the country was self-sufficient and did not depend for nuclear fuel supplies on the few current global suppliers.The company is a key player and a global leader in nuclear medicine, exporting life- saving medical isotopes to more than 60 countries.During the visit, committee members toured the Necsa site, the training and manufacturing facilities, as well as the nuclear medicine and the fluorine plants. The visit, said the committee, was primarily to study what happened at Phelindaba, and to assess if Necsa was ready for the new nuclear build programme.The government needed to speak openly about the nuclear build programme, it stressed.“Government needs to engage the country on the positive and negative aspects of the build programme,” said committee chairman Fikile Majola. “Issues of confidentiality need to be explained where they exist.”Transparency neededThe committee was of the view that the country needed to have a discussion on the procurement process of the nuclear build programme. Members of Parliament needed to engage with relevant stakeholders, said Majola. “We need to remove the secrecy surrounding the build programme and have a public discourse on the issue.”The members welcomed the localisation aspect included in the nuclear build programme, saying this would create employment opportunities and would contribute to skills development.Parliament needed to find a mechanism of a co-ordinated approach that would bring committees together to deal with and focus on the nuclear build programme, said Majola.On the visit, the committee was impressed by the medical products produced by Necsa’s NTP division, particularly those used to detect cancer. It encouraged the corporation to find ways to roll out this product in deep rural areas where people often did not go for cancer screening.Today, the committee is at MegaWatt Park, Eskom’s headquarters, where discussions will focus on challenges facing the electricity supplier.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

The 2018 Ohio Crop Tour – I-75 Leg – Day 2

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Click on the images for a closer lookGreene CountyCorn: This field was planted in late April and shows signs of a steady water supply all season long. It is very healthy and the color s changing on the husk. The GLS was less than 1% and ear fill was among the best we have seen on the tour, if not the best. The yield estimate is 206.3 bushels.Soybeans: This field was planted in late May and still needs some time but it has great soil moisture with more coming. There was some frogeye and maybe something bacterial way down the canopy, but disease levels were low. There was also some SDS. There is some up and down but the canopy is a fairly consistent 45 inches tall. The plants are well podded with node spacing ranging from 2.5 to 4 inches. This is a 50+ bushel field.Greene Co. cornGreene Co. bean fieldGreene Co. bean plantsGreene Co. corn fieldGreene Co. cornGreene Co. bean fieldGreene Co. bean plantsGreene Co. corn fieldMontgomery CountyCorn: There was significant giant ragweed in this field but there was great plant health. There was quite a bit of GLS and NCLB. It really wasn’t that bad. It was not a huge impact on the yield. The bigger problem was some erratic stands. There were skips and gaps and the giant ragweed had filled in. Ear fill was excellent. Yield estimate was 175 bushels.Soybeans: The field was up and down all the way across. We had many water issues and canopy height was anywhere from 24 to 33 inches. The plants were short but the nodes were packed together with an average spacing of 1.9 inches. The field was loaded with downy mildew. We had some Japanese beetle and bean leaf beetle feeding and project a yield around 45 bushels with a fair to good rating.Montgomery Co. corn fieldMontgomery Co. cornMontgomery Co. bean fieldMontgomery Co. beansMontgomery Co. corn fieldMontgomery Co. cornMontgomery Co. bean fieldMontgomery Co. beans Warren CountyCorn: We walked into a tall field of corn planted at 35,000 with a final stand of 34,000. It was planted May 2. The field had very high GLS pressure, the worst we have seen from the bottom to the top. Top leaves had 10% to 12% infection rate. There was no insect pressure. There was some tip back. The yield estimate was 224 bushels but the high GLS pressure could hurt stalk integrity at harvest time. It may have to be taken off wet to get harvestable ears.Soybeans: There was a very even canopy and very thick with a canopy height of 39 inches. The nodes were consistent 1.5 to 2 inches. This had some of the most frogeye we’ve seen. They did spray and it slowed it down, but not for very long. There was a plant or two with SDS. Stink bugs were present along with grasshoppers and Japanese beetles. There were 2 to 4 pods per node with some two-bean and four-bean pods. These were at R6 or R7. Planting date was early May and the frogeye could hurt yield but it still could be 60 bushels.Warren Co. corn fieldWarren Co. cornWarren Co. bean fieldWarren Co. beansWarren Co. brown stink bugWarren Co. corn fieldWarren Co. cornWarren Co. bean fieldWarren Co. beansButler CountyCorn: The field was very tall with high ear placement. There was plenty of GLS but stalks seemed to be intact. GLS could be a yield-limiting factor in this field. We found some burrowing into the stalks that was likely European corn borer. The plant was dying back naturally and the corn is at black layer. We are estimating the yield to be around 182 bushels. Soybeans: We were struck by the SDS that was broadly scattered though the field. We saw 10 to 20% of plants affected. We were still pretty happy with this R6 field. Canopy height is 42 inches with a consistent 2.5 inches between nodes. We saw feeding from bean leaf beetles and grasshoppers at work in the field. We also saw some stink bugs that could affect seed quality and yield. It was a nice, consistent field with mostly 3-bean pods. This was better than good with 60+ yield potential.Butler Co. cornButler Co. soybeansButler Co. beansButler Co. corn fieldButler Co. cornButler Co. soybeansButler Co. beansButler Co. corn fieldPreble CountyCorn: The corn was planted April 23. There was adequate moisture and timely fungicide application but the stands were spotty. We counted a population of 25,500. The ear fill was fantastic. We did see GLS and NCLB. We saw some differences in rows around. The husks were turning yellow and approaching maturity. We found an average of 180 bushels. The corn is farther along in maturity as we move further south.Soybeans: This very attractive field was planted April 21 at 140,000 seeding rate. The canopy height of these R5 beans was 44 inches tall. The distance between the nodes was an average of 2.4 inches with many 4-bean pods. There were many 3 and 4-pod clusters almost all the way to the top with some frogeye pressure and a little bean leaf beetle. The field was excellent, maybe the best we have seen and should push 70 bushels. The only downside we can see in this field is that the plants are leaning and could have harvest challenges. We are seeing more R6 beans as we move south.Preble Co. beansPreble Co. cornPreble Co. 4-bean podsPreble Co. bean fieldPreble Co. beansPreble Co. cornPreble Co. 4-bean podsPreble Co. bean fieldMiami CountyCorn: The field was planted April 26 at 35,000 population. It had very heavy GLS and the heaviest NCLB we have seen to date. There were corn leaf aphids and a good population of ladybug larvae. The disease levels were enough to cause potential lodging issues and cannibalization. The yield estimate is 174 bushels. It had good kernel fill and good pollination.Soybeans: It was nice to walk down these 20-inch rows. The field was planted in late April. “Man these are nice!” The canopy height was 36 inches. There was 2.5-inches between nodes top to bottom. There was some frogeye that may have had some effect on yield. There were stinkbugs, bean leaf beetle and grasshoppers. There were more than 4 pods per node and many 4-bean pods. This is a 65+-bushel field. This side of the county looks like crops had enough water but the other side has had some issues with dry weather.Miami Co. Corn fieldMiami Co. cornMiami Co. bean fieldMiami Co. beansMiami Co. Corn fieldMiami Co. cornMiami Co. bean fieldMiami Co. beansShelby CountyCorn: This is a very healthy field! It was planted in early May and nothing slowed it down since then. There were 6 to 7 leaves below the ear still healthy with minimal disease. There was good pollination and good ear fill clear to the tip in this excellent field. There is some variation in ear size but the population was 34,000 to 37,000 with some emergence issues. There was full tillage here with an average of 203 bushels.Soybeans: The field was fairly heavily podded with a short canopy of 30 inches. The internodes were stacked tightly at an average of 2.3 inches. There were many 3 or 4 pod nodes but some of those only had 2 beans per pod. There was decent branching with a decent pod-set on those branches. There was some SDS at early stages and some of the heaviest weed pressure and insect pressure so far on the trip. It did have the least amount of frogeye on this tour. Because of the branching and heavy pod-set we think this field will make 45 with a good rating. Shelby County has continued the strong crop yields and fields.Shelby Co. cornShelby Co. soybeans with Japanese beetlesShelby Co. beansShelby Co. corn fieldShelby Co. cornShelby Co. soybeans with Japanese beetlesShelby Co. beansShelby Co. corn fieldDarke CountyCorn: Tillage was done at this location and it may have dried out the soil because there were some late emergers and some plant spacing issues. The late emerging plants were the biggest challenge in this field. There was more tillering in this field than any field we have been in, probably because of the better than normal growing conditions once the plant got out of the ground. There was GLS scattered throughout the plants but at very low levels. We had a planting population of 30,800 and final stand was 28,000. Because of the lower populations we had very healthy, robust stalks (they are going to stand until Christmas). There was some tip back. We estimated the yield to be 218 bushels with an excellent rating. There are many really nice corn fields in Darke County that seem to be further along in maturity than we have seen.Soybeans: This was an excellent field that is thick and podded heavy. They were 49 inches tall. The distance between the nodes was 2.5 to 4 inches but pretty consistent all the way up the plant. It looked like they had consistent rain. There was a little frogeye and the field had been sprayed. There was a little downy mildew. There was some feeding from insects, but no Japanese beetle feeding. There were 4-plus pods per node and the field was excellent with 60+ yield potential and we are not afraid to say 70 bushels with this field.Darke Co. corn fieldDarke Co. cornDarke Co. bean fieldDarke Co. beansDarke Co. corn fieldDarke Co. cornDarke Co. bean fieldDarke Co. beansMercer CountyCorn: There was a May 4 planting date with 35, 000 population. The corn was very nice with healthy conditions. There were great looking ears with good ear fill. There was some GLS and NCLB but fairly minimal. It was a dent plus. We had four good healthy leaves at or below the ear. No fungicides were applied in season. The ear fill was excellent. Out of the six ears we pulled, one had tip back. We found a yield of 191 bushels.Soybeans: The field was very good at R6 for one of the further along fields. Beans were starting to lay down after a significant rain last night but we think they will stand back up. The canopy height was 38 inches with an average of 14 nodes per plant on the main stem with 2.7 inches per node. We saw some frogeye, but not at significant levels. There was a lot of Japanese beetle feeding. There were many four-pod nodes and some 4-bean pods. This looks like a 60+ bushel field.As we move south, it looks like there are more even plant heights and less moisture stress than crops we went through further north.Mercer Co. Corn fieldMercer Co. cornMercer Co bean fieldMercer Co. beansMercer Co. Corn fieldMercer Co. cornMercer Co bean fieldMercer Co. beansAuglaize CountyCorn: Despite the highest amount of GLS we have seen yet in the lower canopy, the ear leaf only had a 2% to 3% infection. Stalks still were intact. We had some pollination issues but they were not severe. There was significant tip-back averaging maybe 2 inches per ear. We saw no insect pressure. The overall rating of the field was very good. Our yield estimate was 179 bushels.Soybeans: Deemed “Godzilla” beans by Zach Profit, the field looks fantastic at 50 inches tall. They are still standing but they could have lodging issues. The distance between the nodes was 2 inches in the lower plant and 4 inches higher on the plant. There was a little bit of Sudden Death Syndrome and a little bit of white mold. There was no insect feeding but we did find a few aphids. There were 3 to 5 pods per node with typically 3 beans per pod. This is a 60+-bushel field and we are tempted to say 70 in the excellent field. The crops in Auglaize County look pretty good with less weed pressure in the beans, but there may be a little more disease pressure so far as we have headed south.Auglaize Co. cornAuglaize Co.

Blood in Bahrain: This Week in Online Tyranny

In the latest Middle East uprising, Bahrain went into the streets on this week, filling up streets and roundabouts. Last night, however, it went pear-shaped as Bahrain security forces attempted to “close” the square. Between tear gas, tear gas canisters, beatings, rubber bullets and possibly live fire, three have died. Over 200 were injured, 60 are missing and dozens arrested. Crowdvoice, a site run by the Bahrain-based MideastYouth, has been blocked due to their page on the Human Rights Crackdown in Bahrain. Protests and classes also took place in Libya, where one protester was killed. The Libyan government had tried to head it off by warning against using Facebook and arresting several activists. Protests took place for the seventh day in Yemen . In Iraq government forces killed one and dozens were wounded in an anti-government protest. Syria sentences blogger to five years. After removing blocks on the Internet that have been in place for years, as a sop to protests around the Middle East, Syria’s government couldn’t deny their essential nature. They’ve sentenced a 19-year-old female blogger, Tal Al Mallohi, to five years in prison. Detained since December of 2009, she was convicted of “revealing information to a foreign country.”Oh, did we mention Mubarak resigned? After three weeks of intense protest, after a whole generation was mobilized, Egypt’s president Hosni Mubarak resigned from 30 years of one-man rule. Mubarak, like Tunisia’s Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali, tried various stalling methods. But none of it worked. The people of Egypt were done with him. I confess, I kept waiting for the fall-out, but it keeps not coming. There’ll be a lot of hard work ahead but once the vast majority of a country get behind a change, that’s when it sticks. Currently, Wael Ghonim has set up a very successful Google Moderator page to sketch out the future of the country.Blogger and lit mag editor from Equatorial Guinea leaves country. Juan Tomás Ávila Laurel started a hunger strike to protest President Teodoro Obiang Nguema’s dictatorial rule. He left for Spain four days later after repeated harassment. He cited Tunisia and Egypt as models for his country. Cuba increases Internet connectivity. An undersea cable from Venezuela just reached Cuba. When it goes live it will increase Cuba’s Internet connectivity 3000x. It is far from certain that this will mean more Cubans will be online. One Cuban however, Cuba’s most renowned blogger Yoani Sánchez , is back online in that country after years of being blocked. Her Cuban blog aggregator, Desde Cuba, is likewise visible. How long that will last is equally uncertain. Bahrain photo via Al Jazeeralast_img read more
