The Music Behind The Madness At Col. Bruce Hampton’s Last Hurrah [Photos/Audio]

first_imgLoad remaining images It’s hard to know how to feel after last night’s Hampton 70: A Celebration of Col. Bruce Hampton show at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta. For nearly four hours, different combinations of world-class musicians graced the Fox stage with the Colonel, performing joyous renditions of classic rock and blues covers along with seminal Bruce Hampton material to a packed house (and countless more via live stream) in honor of the Colonel’s 70th birthday. It was a joyous celebration; a highly potent, awe-inspiring display of musicianship; a moving show of respect and admiration for one of the most influential performers of his generation.Stranger Than Fiction: The Cosmic Curtain Call Of Col. Bruce HamptonEven before Hampton collapsed during the show’s encore, this was a performance of epic proportions, a night of music that would be talked about for years to come. Many of the jam scene’s most talented and respected players–including John Bell, Dave Schools, Jon Fishman, Warren Haynes, Karl Denson, Jimmy Herring, Chuck Leavell, John Popper, Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, Brandon “TAZ” Niederauer and so many more–came out to pay their respects to a the jam scene elder statesman.From the almost overwhelming musical star power featured throughout the night, to the stranger-than-fiction manner in which the evening ended, Hampton 70 instantly became one of the most meaningful, beautiful, tragic, stupefying rock concerts that has ever occurred. Until the end of time, people will talk about the night that Colonel Bruce Hampton gathered the best and the brightest for one final, incredible performance, and left it all on the stage. An iconic occurrence on the timeline of music history. A truly legendary send-off.Listen to a full audience audio recording of the show below:Hampton 70 – 5/1/17 – Full Audio[Audio: Daniel Kopp]You can check out the full artist lineup and setlist from Hampton 70: A Celeration of Col.

ABP faces €1bn bill for unpaid labour disability benefits

first_imgABP’s headquarters in Heerlen, the Netherlands Dutch civil service scheme ABP could have to pay up to €1bn after discovering 16,000 participants and pensioners who were entitled to, but not receiving, additional labour disability benefits.The pension fund said it would pay the benefits in arrears, and also compensate disabled scheme members who had continued to pay contributions despite being exempt from doing so.Jos van Dijk, spokeswoman for the €431bn pension fund, said the discrepancy was found after comparing figures from social security insurer UWV with ABP’s own data.“The observation by the UWV that the number of disabled people was rising was not reflected by our figures,” she said. Although participants needed to apply for their pension themselves, ABP said everybody should receive the benefits to which they they are entitled.“That’s why we have sent all our participants a letter explaining how they still can sort out the matter correctly,” said Van Dijk.According to the spokeswoman, affected members missed out on €200 a month on average.As the right to the additional labour disability benefits has existed since 2007, the total amount involved could be significant, she indicated.“Although we need to have a second look at almost 5,000 cases, we have factored in a total amount of approximately €1bn,” Van Dijk said.ABP said that processing the applications could take up to six months, but people who needed money sooner could receive a deposit.The civil service scheme, which has approximately 3m participants and pensioners, said it would adjust its IT systems to improve its treatment of disability benefits.The case is the second time this year that ABP has had to address incorrect payments to members. In March it emerged that the pension scheme had incorrectly overpaid 700 pensioners by €3m due to a data error. last_img read more

Video Shows Children Popping Balloon Before Mall Shooting Scare

first_imgAs detectives reviewed the surveillance video, they also found footage that shows children popping a balloon just before 3 p.m. inside the Hollister store near the food court. That situation took place about two minutes after the balloon popped under the janitor’s wheel.Boca Police issued a statement that reads, “We encourage you to always be prepared for a potential active shooter event. Be our eyes and ears to report suspicious activity. Have a plan to run, hide or fight, if needed. Many sounds can be mistaken for gunfire or explosions, including popping balloons, slamming push bars on doors, items being dropped and more. If you do not perceive an immediate threat, make sure that you evacuate in a calm and controlled manner to avoid trampling other people and/or falling to the ground.” Boca Raton Police released new video on Thursday afternoon in the case of last Sunday’s active shooter scare at the Town Center Mall.The video first shows a janitor pushing a cart with a balloon stuck under the wheel. He told investigators that the balloon popped under the wheel a short time after he moved out of view.Some of our citizens & media asked about video from the event at the Town Center mall on Sunday. We are providing 2 video segments involving balloons popping, close to the time when people thought they heard shots fired. @bocapolice To read more click: https://t.co/xg4Lt6PhS4 pic.twitter.com/5rEAKSgGch— Boca Raton Police (@BocaPolice) October 17, 2019last_img read more

Lack of offensive chances demoralizes Syracuse in 7-1 loss to No. 3 North Carolina

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments Syracuse head coach Phil Wheddon bent his knees and hovered over a backpedaling Georgia Allen. Allen traced the ball with her eyes as a defender tracked her. “Win the first ball, Georgia,” Wheddon screamed toward Allen. She didn’t. “OK, win the second ball then,” he said. Again, she didn’t. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAs the Orange’s deficit got deeper, Wheddon ran out of advice for his players. The Tar Heels controlled the game. All he could do was watch. “They’re taking a national team player off the field and replacing them with another national team player,” Wheddon said. “Unfortunately, a lot of our players don’t, and that’s the difference.” No. 3 North Carolina’s (11-2-1, 6-0 Atlantic Coast) overload of talent exposed Syracuse (3-11, 0-6) when they tried to mount an early first-half comeback. SU couldn’t get past midfield as the Tar Heels’ backline clobbered Syracuse forwards trying to change direction. The Orange put one shot on goal all game in a 7-1 loss. During its eight-game losing streak coming into Sunday, Syracuse was outshot in all but it’s Sept. 9 matchup with Colgate. Against three ranked teams during that span, the Orange mustered an average of 4 shots per game to its opponents 20. When SU opened the game with possession to start, it played forward. Allen slipped the ball to Shannon Aviza, who ran up the field. A UNC defender closed in on her space, Aviza pivoted and the Tar Heel ripped the ball from Aviza’s foot. North Carolina booted the ball near its box and camped out on that side of the field. UNC held onto the ball, scoring five minutes into the game, and kept the ball near SU’s net. The Tar Heels piled onto its lead, making it 2-0 until SU broke through. Mishandled by North Carolina’s Julia Ashley, Meghan Root snuck past Bridgette Andrzejewski in the 27th minute to score on its second shot of the night. “They’re always talking about getting in on that second ball,” Root said. “It worked there.” But UNC gathered at midfield after the score and held onto the ball for all but two possessions for the rest of the first half. Every missed shot and errant corner kick spilled out to Allen, SU’s deepest player on offense. Allen was met by two, sometimes three Tar Heels who circled around the junior, stealing the ball from her grasp. Following a misplay before the end of the half, Wheddon, who usually follows his players into the locker room, gathered the coaches for a four-minute meeting. With his hands atop his head, he looked distressed. He said he discussed how to slow the Tar Heels down. But it couldn’t help. The ball was on UNC’s side of the field for the first four minutes of the half. SU got it back briefly but then lost it again. When SU players coughed up the ball, North Carolina held possession and turned it into goals. “(There’s) a couple moments where we’ve got to get a foot on it,” Root said. “We’ve got to be tighter to our players.” Even as UNC added to its lead, SU couldn’t find the ball. Every Orange turnover was coupled with a long Tar Heels possession that usually led to a shot on goal. After the game, Wheddon listed off a multitude of reasons why Syracuse couldn’t contain the ball: pass selection, misread crosses and not enough pace. Wheddon said he challenged his players before the game to fight with UNC. He didn’t think they were hesitant. They were just outplayed. “Against a team of this caliber,” Wheddon said, “you’re not going to get any breaks.”center_img Published on October 7, 2018 at 6:18 pm Contact KJ: [email protected] | @KJEdelmanlast_img read more
