A scorching “Gotta Jibboo” brought set one to a close, with a promising holiday show in the works.Set two opened up with an unfinished “Down With Diesease”, which led into a marathon of “Piper” > “Ghost” > “Waste”, and “Julius” > “Mike’s Song” > “Tela”. The highlight of the show came next when Phish sandwiched a debut cover of Rage Against The Machine’s “Killing In The Name Of” in an epic “Harpua”. “Weekapaug Groove” closed out set two, with a fitting “First Tube” encore on such a joyous occasion.Check out a video of this classic 4th of July cover below!Phish – “Killing In The Name Of” – 07/04/2010[Video: dougcurling]Setlist: Phish | Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre | Alpharetta, GA | 07/04/2010Set 1: The Star Spangled Banner, Punch You In The Eye> Colonel Forbin’s Ascent> Fly Famous Mockingbird, Camel Walk, Ocelot, Heavy Things> My Friend My Friend> Lawn Boy, David Bowie, Gotta JibbooSet 2: Down With Disease> Piper> Ghost>Waste, Julius> Mike’s Song> Tela> Harpua>Killing In The Name Of> Harpua> Weekapaug GrooveEncore: First TubeDisease was unfinished.

View Comments Could Broadway-bound Derek Hough make time for NBC’s live Hairspray broadcast? The triple threat, who is set to star in the upcoming Broadway revival of Singin’ in the Rain, says he’s interested. “I would love to do that!” Hough told Broadway.com. Hairspray, which will air on December 7 on NBC, follows plus-sized teenager Tracy Turnblad in 1960s Baltimore as she attempts to become a cast member of The Corny Collins Show, a popular local dance TV series.“I think it’s wonderful that musicals are being brought to television, and I think that Grease got it right,” Hough told us, praising his sister Julianne for her portrayal of Sandy on Fox’s Grease: Live. “She was incredible,” Hough said. “She knocked it out of the park.” The live musical broadcast garnered 17 million viewers worldwide. As Hough, who made his Broadway debut with a brief engagement in Burn the Floor in 2010, readies for his return to the boards, he also thinks there’s room for his little sister on the Great White Way, but in a splashy musical with a different type of precipitation. “I would love to see her do Frozen. I think she could kill that,” he told Broadway.com.Now that Hough’s said it, we can’t let it go. By the way, you don’t have to imagine the two-time Emmy winner and six-time Dancing with the Stars champ as one of Hairspray’s “Nicest Kids in Town.” Just watch this!

“CFD in Jakarta has returned this morning,” @g_hanafiah tweeted.Another Twitter user, @adriansyahyasin, shared a series of photos showing a crowd of cyclists and joggers on Jl. Sudirman, while saying the lack of proper public spaces in the capital city had left most people with no other choice but to gather in a single location just to exercise.CFD yang ramai adalah bukti Jakarta tidak memiliki persebaran ruang publik terbuka berkualitas yang merata, sampe semua orang harus tumplek blek nunggu jalan ini ditutup atau ke GBK hanya untuk berolahragaKalo diseantero Jakarta jalannya aman buat bersepeda mungkin lain cerita pic.twitter.com/IQarnLHiw9— Adriansyah Yasin Sulaeman (@adriansyahyasin) June 21, 2020 “A crowded CFD proves that Jakarta lacks public spaces, so much so that everyone had to flock here […] or to the GBK [Gelora Bung Karno sports complex] just to exercise,” he wrote in the caption of the post.Fellow netizens have since conveyed their concerns about the risks of coronavirus transmission on CFD, with some even speculating that the weekly event could turn into a new outbreak cluster due to the lax implementation of physical distancing measures.It’s Car Free Day, not COVID free day, good people.— Raya Fahreza Wiguna (@rayafahreza) June 21, 2020 Netizens have raised concerns over public health as images and videos of large crowds inundating the streets of Central Jakarta on the first Car Free Day (CFD) following months of large-scale restrictions (PSBB) spread on social media.CFD had been suspended since March 15 as part of the city administration’s efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19.Internet personality and television host Gemala Hanafiah posted on her official Twitter page a video showing a large number of people walking and cycling near the Hotel Indonesia traffic circle on Jl.

The Jakarta Police have deployed personnel on Jl. Thamrin to ensure that residents obey health protocols such as wearing face masks and maintaining physical distancing.10.58 Kamsel Dit Lantas PMJ melaksanakan Giat Sosialisasi dan Himbauan untuk tetap menjaga kebersihan dan menerapkan protokol kesehatan di tengah warga Jakarta yg melakukan kegiatan CFD di BUndaran HI. pic.twitter.com/3TKY4I57xa— TMC Polda Metro Jaya (@TMCPoldaMetro) June 21, 2020Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan said last Sunday that the administration would resume the weekly CFD.

ARCADIA, Calif. (Jan. 9, 2016)–Idle since March 28 in Dubai, 2014 Horse of the Year California Chrome came back running on Saturday at Santa Anita, as he forged to a 1 ¼ length win in the Grade II, $200,000 San Pasqual Stakes. Trained by Art Sherman and ridden by Victor Espinoza, the 5-year-old California-bred horse by Lucky Pulpit covered 1 1/16 miles in 1:43.39.Breaking from post position four in a field of seven older horses, California Chrome utilized his natural speed to sit a comfortable second behind pacesetter Alfa Bird into and around the Club House turn. Well in hand under Espinoza, “Chrome” cruised to the lead under a hold approaching the quarter pole and kept runner-up Imperative at bay the final sixteenth.“He could’ve opened up turning for home, but Victor put the Full-Nelson on him,” quipped Sherman. “It was just what we needed. He’ll get a lot out of this race, believe me. It set up just as we figured. I knew he’d show speed. He’s been wanting to run quite a bit right now…and I said ‘He’s got a lot of gas (speed) himself and you can place him where you want.“That’s why he’s a perfect horse. You don’t have to bring a game plan with him. He can sit off the pace or go on the pace.”Sherman said that California Chrome, who picked up $2 million for running second in last year’s Dubai World Cup, would be heading back to the Middle East later this month.“He’ll ship Jan. 21, have one prep (in Dubai), then come home after the World Cup,” he said. “It’s very heart-warming to see his fans and the reception he received. I was just jammed full of people around the paddock. It was just great.”Off at 3-5, California Chrome paid $3.20, $2.40 and $2.10. A winner of four Grade I stakes in 2014; the Santa Anita Derby, Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Hollywood Derby, California Chrome notched his 10th win from 19 starts Saturday, and with the winner’s share of $120,000, increased his career earnings to $6,442,650, thus surpassing two-time Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Tiznow to become the leading California-bred of all time. (North America’s all-time leader Curlin, retired with earnings of $10,501,800, while California Chrome currently ranks 25th).Bred and originally owned by Perry Martin and Steve Coburn, California Chrome is now owned by California Chrome, LLC, which is comprised of Kentucky-based Taylor Made Stallions and Martin, who retains his majority 70 percent stake in the horse.“We feel blessed to be a part of this, what a horse!” said new co-owner Frank Taylor. “He’s so sound and so genuine. He’s a special horse.”Assistant trainer Alan Sherman, who watched the race from the Winner’s Circle while holding his two year old grandson, was satisfied with his stable superstar.“He got tired, but that was good,” he said. “He got tired, but he got it done. It’s just so much fun, it was awesome.”Trained by Richard Baltas and ridden by Mario Gutierrez, Imperative rallied from mid-pack and made the winner work late, while finishing one length in front of Hoppertunity. Off at 7-1, Imperative paid $5.80 and $3.00.“I’m very proud of the horse,” said Baltas. “It looked like we might get to him there at the top of the stretch, but ‘Chrome’ was ready.”Bob Baffert’s multiple graded stakes winning Hoppertunity, who came off a big second in the Grade I Clark Handicap at Churchill Downs Nov. 27, appeared full of run at the rail heading to the far turn, finished well but was unable to threaten the winner as he finished 3 ½ lengths clear of Hard Aces.The second choice with Martin Garcia at 2-1, Hoppertunity paid $2.20 to show.Fractions on the race were 24.82, 49.12, 1:12.90 and 1:36.96.Santa Anita will offer a nine-race card on Sunday, with first post time at 12:30 p.m. Admission gates open at 10:30 a.m. CHESTNUT HORSE BY LUCKY PULPIT SURPASSES TIZNOW AS ALL-TIME LEADING CAL-BRED MONEY WINNER AS HIS CAREER EARNINGS EXCEED $6.4 MILLION
OAKLAND – The man seemingly never stops working. At some point, though, Warriors forward Kevon Looney had a rare free moment in practice when he wasn’t studying film, lifting weights, improving his jump shot or completing conditioning drills.Then, Warriors coach Steve Kerr shared with Looney earlier this week his prediction on how his NBA career will unfold.“Your career may not end up being glamorous,” Kerr told Looney. “But it’s going to be really productive and long.”The reason? Looney …
By offering these children a chance to own books, they hope that the sense of ownership will strengthen their interest in reading. (image: Read to Rise)In a bid to address some of the harsh realities of growing up in underprivileged areas, Read to Rise offers South African youth a chance to discover new worlds through reading.As one of the country’s core focuses, education is extremely important with regards to moulding the leaders of the future and arming them with the skills and knowledge necessary for them to lead productive lives and become contributing members of society.The Read to Rise non-government organisation (NGO) was established in 2013 by couple Athol Williams and Taryn Lock, who between them boast seven academic degrees and vast business experience.Born from their shared passion for literacy, education and helping others reach the heights of their potential, the Read to Rise organisation has been working with youth from under-resourced communities such as Mitchell Plain and its surrounding areas near Cape Town.“Athol grew up in Mitchells Plain so he knows the challenges that these young children face,” says Lock.With a large number of schools lacking properly stocked libraries – some lacking libraries all-together – the Read to Rise organisation offers children suitable reading material fitting for their age groups in an attempt to instil a love of reading early on in life.“Read to Rise aims to inspire children to read in under-resourced communities. As the name indicates, we firmly believe that children need to read in order to rise in their personal development and contribution to society,” says Lock. “We believe that children who love to read will excel at school and go on to become constructive citizens. It all starts with reading.”AN EARLY STARTAccording to Read to Rise, children in their foundational phase of education should be reading around 40 books a year that are suited to their level. Their findings suggest that children in the areas they operate read one or two books, which fall far short of the recommendation.This is due to the lack of motivation to pick up a book and read. To address this, Read to Rise visits to hold interactive reading sessions with the children.The organisation has taken a different angle when it comes to encouraging a good reading ethos amongst school children. By offering these children a chance to own books, they hope that the sense of ownership will strengthen their interest in reading.Lock says that they “believe that book ownership is important so give children their own new book to take home.“In addition, we place a Mini-Library – which is a brightly painted bookshelf which contains 50 new age-appropriate story books – in every classroom so that learners have access to these books.”Since its establishment, Read to Rise has visited children in more than 350 classrooms, handing out in excess of 2 800 books to pupils in Soweto and Mitchells Plain.Read to Rise has been working with youth from under-resourced communities such as Mitchell Plain and its surrounding areas near Cape Town.BOOKS IN THE NEW AGESpeaking on the role that books have in the age of tablets and smart phones, Lock says “books play a huge part in today’s age especially in the under-resourced, crime-ridden communities that we work with.“There is something special about holding a new book in your hands, turning the pages and reading it. Book ownership is important as it creates a sense of pride, responsibility and an enjoyment of reading. That’s exactly why we give a brand new, high quality book to every child.”PLAY YOUR PARTIf you’re looking to help the Read to Rise organisation you can visit their website at www.readtorise.co.za or email them at [email protected]“Individuals can volunteer their time to read to children at schools, cover books in plastic at one of our “Cover & Coffee” sessions or offer their expertise to assist with our operations.” Lock explains.“Individuals or corporates can sponsor new books. It costs R45 to sponsor a new book for a learner or R3,200 to sponsor a Mini-Library for a class.”
By: Caitlyn BrownPixabay[iPhone by fancycrave1, April 21, 2015] CCOThe use of apps has become fluent and an ingrained part of our technology use. Children know how to access and use apps before they understand how to use a television remote. We use apps to make lists, stay connected, check the weather predictions, navigate and avoid traffic, and to stay entertained. Apps are an integral part of our daily living now, allowing us to outsource information that generations before smartphones had to keep in their memory banks.Our dependence on technology (namely our phones and social media) has led to criticism regarding our ability to have fulfilling interpersonal relationships. On the flip side, technology has improved our ability to stay connected to those who are physically distanced from us for various reasons including deployment and TDY. The invention and use of apps, smartphones, and video calling has aided in families’ ability to remain in contact with their loved ones who are not within physical proximity to one another. The invention of the aforementioned has also added another element that can be of great benefit: support.Operation Reach Out was created by Military Community Awareness, Inc. (MCA). It is a smartphone app that aims to prevent suicide in military personnel, veterans, and service members. In addition to assisting those who are at-risk for suicide directly, it is also designed to assist those who are concerned about others who may be at risk.When service members return from deployment, some may reintegrate back into their lives with no issues or concerns. Others, especially those suffering from PTSD or other mental health concerns, may feel isolated or detached from their support systems for one reason or another upon their return. The app was created to mitigate these feelings of isolation and detachment by creating a support service to those who may feel they have no options.Operation Reach Out provides support, education, resources and help to its users. Regardless of the user, the app provides resources and online links to websites such as the Suicide Prevention Lifeline, Defense Suicide Prevention Office, MilitaryFamily.com and Military Community Awareness to name a few.The app encourages those who are at risk to provide the contact information of those closest to them in case they need to be contacted. It also provides a list of activities that encourage an individual to reconnect with those they feel closest to even though they may have isolated themselves from that person. These activities and suggestions can be rated so the app can be more intuitive to the user’s interests and needs.Additionally, this app provides over ten videos that provide empathetic and compassionate reminders to those who may be in crisis. The goal of the videos is to help the individual understand that the feelings they may be experiencing in the moment will pass and that all problems are solvable if given the time. If you are using the app for your concern about someone else, Operation Reach Out provides nine videos to help navigate questions to ask and how to phrase things when communicating with the individual at risk.Links for the app:For Android Users: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=suicide.prevention.app&hl=enFor iPhone Users: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/operation-reach-out/id478899653This post was written by Caitlyn Brown of the MFLN Family Development Team.

I regret not starting sooner. It wasn’t fear that prevented me from starting. It was the fact that I was comfortable.I regret not treating people with the respect that they deserved. Especially when I was younger, I didn’t treat people as well as I should have.I regret not giving people my full, undivided attention. There is no greater gift you can give a human being than the gift of your full attention. Giving another person your full attention is more difficult now than ever.I regret wasting time. I spent time doing things that did not create value for other people and distracted me from my real mission and wasted my time.I regret believing that someone else was the problem. Stephen Covey said that the belief that someone else is your problem is your real problem. You are your real problem. I can’t count the times I thought another person was my problem.I regret not recognizing my potential earlier in my life. As a young person, I had no idea of my potential. Had I recognized it earlier, I would’ve capitalized on it sooner.I regret almost every minute I’m away from my family and my loved ones. It doesn’t matter what I’m doing; I’d still rather be with my people.I regret not pursuing absolute freedom much sooner. I regret not recognizing that the big game is freedom, not comfort. It’s wealth, not income.I regret not recognizing that we are all connected, that we are not separate sooner. I used to believe that there was a “us” and a “them.” There isn’t. There’s just us.You are supposed to say that you have no regrets, that all the decisions, missteps, mistakes, and failures led you to this point. There is some truth to that. But your regrets are a record of what you have learned and how you have changed.Even if you could go back in time and make decisions to avoid the regrets you have now, that path would only have left you with a different set of regrets. And you still would have had to learn and have had to change to become who you are. Get the Free eBook! Want to master cold calling? Download my free eBook!
