Radiohead Closes Headlining Set At Outside Lands With ‘Karma Police’ [Watch]

first_imgThe last time Radiohead played Outside Lands was the festival’s inaugural year in 2008.The sound gave out twice on that Friday night in August, creating a brief, silent rock show for the small eternity it lingered. But Thom Yorke and the rest of the collective didn’t miss a beat, miming their way through the sonic void.Each audio miscue was promptly corrected, and the dense crowd overflowed with joy watching these titans of experimental alternative create the festival’s foothold in the music scene.Saturday night, in their return to the Lands End main stage at Golden Gate Park, silence fell again, but this time it wasn’t a malfunction.The muted reception from the crowd blanketed the tens of thousands watching into an authentic identity crisis, prompting the question of whether you came for a performance or for an experience.With EDM standout Zedd putting on a sensory-touching performance across the park, it was the perfect example of how much the live music culture has changed over the past eight years.“Burn the Witch” and the ambient ways of “Daydreaming,” the first two tracks on A Moon Shaped Pool, kicked off the set with a sort of anti-opener atmosphere that left the gathered speechless and Yorke skyrocketing to his musical pocket.The set was absolute bliss, with moody staples “Everything in its Right Place,” “Pyramid Song,” “Nude” blended around danceable numbers like “Lotus Flower” and “The Gloaming.”“Weird Fishes” and “Paranoid Android” provided a more palatable contrast, but there was certainly a purpose to the song selection.Radiohead’s music pushes boundaries and can make people feel uncomfortable. You’re unknowingly forced to address your true driving force for seeing live music, and many responded to that by turning around and seeking out the electronic dance party instead.There’s nothing wrong with that. Those that wanted to be there got what they wanted. Music festivals are special because of the collective experience they offer, but with Radiohead, the set was a little more selfish, focused more individual enjoyment.And this is why Outside Lands stands apart from many of its peers. It’s a perfect reminder of our history and future, and unites those two worlds with ease every single year.There was a shared experience at the end, though. Everyone came together and sang the final words of “Karma Police” with a tinge of truth attached, belting out, “For a minute, I lost myself.”What we found, was another masterful show from Radiohead and a special moment for its fans.Watch “Karma Police” below, courtesy of L Yap.You can see the full setlist below.Edit this setlist | More Radiohead setlistslast_img read more

Mamma Mia! Star Elena Ricardo on Her Fosse Family, Dream Man & More

first_img “I started gymnastics when I was three, and I was constantly upside down as a kid, teaching myself cartwheels and standing on my hands. I’ve always been competitive. I loved getting stronger and being able to outrun the boys.” “In seventh grade, I set a push-up record that still stands. We had a fitness test to see how many push-ups we could do in a minute, and I cranked out 81. I weighed about 90 pounds, but I was all muscle. I couldn’t do that anymore—I have a couple of things in my way now!” “I love the idea of a showmance. My Sky [co-star Jon Jorgenson] has a girlfriend, so we can be friends with no pressure, but I look forward to finding my own Broadway man who will pick me up at the stage door, and we can go home and talk about our crazy schedules.” “My parents were Fosse dancers [Michael Ricardo and Katherine Meloche]. They met doing Dancin’ at the Broadhurst, the same theater I’m performing in now. What are the chances of that? I was a mess when they came to see me [play Sophie] because they were incredible performers and I want to make them proud.” “Bring It On was the most challenging thing I’ve done. We were tumbling on a hard surface, and my body felt like it was 70 years old. The show did some recasting before the tour and I didn’t get to do it. That was my first big loss, but I booked the Mamma Mia! tour, which led me to where I am today.” Current Role: Lovely bride-to-be Sophie Sheridan in the long-running musical hit Mamma Mia!, after stints in the ensemble on Broadway and in the show’s national tour.

The purpose of the UVM Foundation is to secure and manage private support for UVM. It will devote itself to raising financial support for the academic and related priorities of the university, including gifts that will build a supplemental endowment.”This alliance has broad implications for the financial health of the University, and its impact will be felt throughout the institution,” said UVM Interim President John Bramley. “With the establishment of the University of Vermont Foundation, UVM has signaled its intent to become more engaged in the broader scope of American philanthropy.”As the primary and preferred recipient for charitable gifts that benefit the university, the UVM Foundation is an independent organization governed by its own Board of Directors, , and assisted in its work by a volunteer Foundation Leadership Council comprised of major donors. Foundation responsibilities include identifying and nurturing relationships with potential donors and other friends of UVM; soliciting cash, securities, real and intellectual property and other private resources; and acknowledging and stewarding gifts in accordance with donor intent.”We couldn’t be more pleased with the way the UVM Foundation has come together in the last year,” said UVM Foundation President and CEO Richard Bundy, who came to Vermont from the Iowa State University Foundation. “With an outstanding Board of Directors and Foundation Leadership Council in place, capable and experienced fundraising staff, and a strong and expanding base of engaged donors, we’re eager to take the university to a new level of philanthropic support.”With the official launch, the 75 staff who were formerly members of the university’s Office of Development and Alumni Relations (DAR) became employees of the UVM Foundation, and DAR has been eliminated from the UVM administrative organization. The UVM Alumni Association will continue to operate its various programs and initiatives as an integral part of the overall UVM Foundation.UVM had its fourth consecutive year of growth in private giving in the fiscal year ending June 30, 2010, and set a new record for fundraising receipts with more than $29 million raised in support of UVM people, programs, and facilities.last_img read more

West Virginia’s Camp Creek State Park opens new primitive camping cabin

first_img“As the months roll by, it’s clear that the virus is going to be with is a profound way, for the foreseeable future,” CEO Eric Artz said in an email to staff. “We’re doing great work serving customer demand right now, but there’s a lot we still don’t know about the long-term impacts to the economy and the full impact to our business.”  Statistics provided by the U.S. Travel Association show many people are traveling hundreds of miles across state lines to visit national parks, National Parks Traveler reports. At Yellowstone National Park, for example, 91 percent of tourists drove more than 200 miles to visit the park since its reopening in May, the data shows. At the Grand Canyon, 78% of visitors at the South Rim drove more than 200 miles for a visit.  Hiker standing near a ledge at Lindy Point in West Virginia – Photo by Michael Ver Sprill courtesy of Getty Images West Virginia’s Camp Creek State Park opens new primitive camping cabin REI to lay off 400 retail employees Statistics show visitors are flocking to national parks, despite virus In a sign of the times, REI announced that they will lay off 400 retail employees this week, cutting the company’s retail workforce by approximately 3%. Earlier in the year, the company laid off about 300 corporate employees at their headquarters in Kent, Washington. REI says the most recent cuts will impact employees that have not returned to work yet, including some who do not wish to return. The cabin is located on the forest side of Camp Creek and is accessed by hiking more than three miles up the mountain. “This cabin is really special and perfect for people who want to escape to the mountains and experience what cabin life was like a century ago,” Camp Creek Superintendent Frank Ratcliffe said. To reserve the cabin, call 1-833-WVPARKS. A new cabin featuring rustic accommodations and a primitive, off-the-grid experience was dedicated at Camp Creek State Park and Forest on Wednesday and is now open for reservations, West Virginia Division of Natural Resources said in a news release. The cabin, called the Ranger Outpost Cabin, is the first of its type offered at the park. last_img read more

Conditions Set for FARC to Release Hostages

first_imgBy Dialogo March 12, 2012 The Colombian government stated on March 8, following a meeting with delegates from Brazil and from the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), that the security conditions are in place for the FARC guerrilla group to free ten uniformed personnel it committed to releasing in February. “On the part of the Colombian government, the Brazilian government, and the International Committee of the Red Cross, all the conditions are already in place for the release of those kidnapped,” Deputy Defense Minister Jorge Bedoya told reporters after the meeting. Bedoya stressed that the Colombian government remains ready to guarantee the conditions for the release of the uniformed personnel. “We already have the protocol worked out, and we’re waiting for the hostages to be released,” he reiterated. The meeting was held at ICRC headquarters in the Colombian capital, where Brazil’s ambassador to Colombia, Antonino Mena, was present due to the fact that his country will facilitate the logistical means for the hostages, some of whom have been in the FARC’s power for over 12 years, to return to their homes. In that regard, Bedoya expressed the Colombian government’s gratitude for Brazil’s collaboration and commitment in facilitating the process of release, as it has done on previous occasions. The Brazilian government will collaborate in these operations with two helicopters and one plane, according to what AFP was recently told by a Brazilian Defense Ministry spokesperson. On February 26, the leadership of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), a Marxist guerrilla group, confirmed that it will free the last ten police and military personnel whom it says it holds captive, at the same time that it announced its renunciation of using kidnapping as a financing method. According to former senator Piedad Córdoba, who has acted as a mediator in previous releases, the release of the hostages could take place in late March, depending on the security conditions and whether the necessary logistics are ready.last_img read more

Obesity harms ‘later brain skill’

first_img Share Tweet HealthLifestyle Obesity harms ‘later brain skill’ by: – March 22, 2012 Sharing is caring! Sharecenter_img 10 Views   no discussions Share A high BMI was linked to lower cognitive scoresBeing overweight in later life puts you at higher risk of brain decline, Korean research suggests. A study of 250 people aged between 60 and 70 found those with a high body mass index (BMI) and big waists scored more poorly in cognitive tests.The Alzheimer’s Society said the research, in the journal Age and Ageing, added to evidence that excess body fat can affect brain function.Lifestyle changes can help make a difference, it said.The study looked at the relationship between fat levels and cognitive performance in adults aged 60 or over.The participants underwent BMI – a calculation based on a ratio of weight to height – and waist circumference measurements, a scan of fat stored in the abdomen and a mental test.Both a high BMI and high levels of abdominal fat were linked with poor cognitive performance in adults aged between 60 and 70.In individuals aged 70 and older, high BMI, waist circumference and abdominal body fat were not associated with low cognitive performance.The lead author of the study, Dae Hyun Yoon, said: “Our findings have important public health implications. The prevention of obesity, particularly central obesity, might be important for the prevention of cognitive decline or dementia.”A spokesperson from the UK Alzheimer’s Society said: “We have all heard how a high BMI is bad for our heart but this research suggests it could also be bad for the head. “Although we don’t know whether the people in this study went on to develop dementia, these findings add to the evidence that excess body fat could impact on brain function.“One in three people over 65 will die with dementia but there are things people can do to reduce their risk. “Eating a balanced diet, maintaining a healthy weight, exercising regularly and getting your blood pressure and cholesterol checked can all make a difference.”BBC Newslast_img read more

Norwich vow to keep senior stars

first_imgNorwich chief executive David McNally insists the club have not received any transfer requests following claims that Wes Hoolahan is seeking a move to Aston Villa. Press Association Despite newspaper reports claiming that Hoolahan has asked for a transfer, McNally insists no player has lodged a formal request to leave. He told the club’s official website, www.canaries.co.uk: “The club’s focus is on improving the squad during this transfer window. “As we have always said, no players will be sold against our will. “We have received no transfer requests this season and have no intention of releasing any of our senior players. “Our focus this January, as with every transfer window, is very much on improving the squad.” Forward Luciano Becchio is another player who is understood to be keen for a fresh start away from Carrow Road, with former club Leeds one potential destination while Sky Bet Championship rivals Blackburn and Derby are also said to be monitoring the situation. Hughton is, however, keen to further bolster his squad, with out-of-favour Everton defender John Heitinga one reported target after a potential move to West Ham fell through. Norwich head to Merseyside on Saturday looking to maintain safe distance between themselves and the bottom three. Key to the Canaries’ hopes of avoiding being dragged into a battle for survival over the second half of what has been a stop-start campaign could be the return of club-record signing Ricky van Wolfswinkel from a toe injury. The Dutch forward completed his first full match in three months during the 1-1 FA Cup third-round draw against Fulham and could now link up with Gary Hooper to give the Norwich attack a fresh impetus after seeing a couple of goal-bound efforts saved. “It didn’t happen for him in front of goal (against Fulham) and maybe there were one or two occasions when he could have got across the keeper, but it was really important for him to get 90 minutes under his belt,” said Hughton. “We know he has missed some three months, which is a fair time to be out and it is disappointing for him after such a good start with a fine goal on the first day.” Norwich head to Goodison Park in 15th place on 20 points, a lower total than at the same stage last season. Centre-back Ryan Bennett, though, is confident Hughton’s squad – boosted by some £20million-plus summer investment – have what it takes to stay clear of trouble ahead of what will be a testing run-in against the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal. “We had a few more points this time last year and I think our form from January until the end of last season wasn’t great – and we know that. But we have got games coming up now every month that we can win, and that’s something we’re going to have to do to stay in the league,” Bennett said, quoted in the Norwich Evening News. “I think everyone in the dressing room is in a positive mood and we can easily do it. You have got to be positive in every game. “Obviously Everton have been in good form this year, they have only lost two games so it will be a hard place to go to, but hopefully we can go there and put in a positive and good performance, like we did against Fulham on Saturday, and beat them.” Midfielder Leroy Fer will be available again following his one-match suspension, while Jonny Howson could make a welcome return having been sidelined since December 15 with a back problem. The Irish playmaker has seen his first-team opportunities limited under manager Chris Hughton, who took charge at Carrow Road following Paul Lambert’s departure in the summer of 2012. Hoolahan was a key member of Lambert’s squad which secured back-to-back promotions from League One to the Barclays Premier League, and there had been reports Lambert was keen to bring the 31-year-old to Villa Park in a bid to rejuvenate his team’s season. last_img read more
