Posted on by

The UK position is clear: we condemn Russia’s continued breach of international law; Crimea is Ukrainian territory. We remain fully committed to upholding the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognised borders. The UK also remains deeply concerned by the human rights situation in Crimea, where we have seen the systematic persecution of minority groups and of those who voice their opposition to Russia’s illegal annexation of the territory. We call again for Russia to release all Ukrainian political prisoners held in Crimea and in Russia, and to allow unrestrained access for international human rights monitoring bodies to the peninsula.last_img read more

Willie Nelson Welcomes Tedeschi Trucks Band & Greensky Bluegrass At Outlaw Music Fest In Holmdel, NJ [Videos]

Posted on by

first_img[Video: Sean Roche]The tour moves onward without the Tedeschi Trucks Band for three more shows before the traveling Outlaw Festival ends. Tedeschi Trucks Band has a few weeks off to prepare for the upcoming run at the legendary Beacon Theatre in New York City. [Video: Micah Nelson]Greensky Bluegrass played next starting around 4 pm. This late in the season, the grass on the lawn of the venue had clearly seen better days, especially following a week of rain and an Ozzy Osbourne concert a few days prior. Given the mud, the venue’s management distributed hay across the law, and that effort combined with a full day of direct sunlight dried the lawn enough to provide a stable ground to stomp on. Across their set, the band performed a number of fan-favorites including “Just To Lie”, “Past My Prime”, and a set-opening “A Letter To Seymour”, with the modern kings of bluegrass closing things out with a take on Bruce Springsteen‘s “Atlantic City” and their own “Run Or Die”.Greensky Bluegrass – “Atlantic City” After a stop in Camden on Saturday night, the Outlaw Music Festival cut through New Jersey to play at Holmdel’s PNC Bank Arts Center. The outdoor venue hosted a full day of music in the September sun that began at 3 pm with Particle Kid, led by Willie Nelson’s son, J. Micah Nelson, who was dubbed by Rolling Stone as the “Trippy Troubadour.” As evident by his grainy music videos, Micah balances an old-school aesthetic with modern sounds and reverb equipment to capture a truly otherworldly, almost-dreamlike sound.Particle Kid – “Music” [Video: Sean Roche]Tugging on heartstrings, Willie Nelson performed another original with the sentimental “Always On My Mind” before covering a bout of Hank William’s songs “Jambalaya”, “Hey Good Lookin’”, and “Move It On Over”. Willie being Willie, the band then rolled into his stoner classics with “It’s All Going to Pot”, which was co-written by Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson from the beloved album Django & Jimmie. Keeping it green, Nelson and the band played an exuberant “Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die.” Nelson offered a sardonic “Still Not Dead” before calling out members of Tedeschi Trucks Band and Greensky Bluegrass to end the night in exuberant celebration.Greensky Bluegrass, who donned matching red bandanas, joined Susan, Derek, and the other Tedeschi Trucks Band vocalists to sing an appropriate “Will the Circle Be Unbroken” > “I’ll Fly Away” > “I Saw the Light”. It was extremely cool to see not only Derek and Susan sharing a stage with Willie Nelson but to witness Derek laying out a badass solo during Hank William’s “I Saw the Light”.Willie Nelson, Tedeschi Trucks Band, & Greensky Bluegrass – “Will the Circle Be Unbroken” > “I’ll Fly Away” > “I Saw the Light” [Video: Sean Roche]Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real took over the stage next around 5 pm. Best known for being Neil Young’s backing band in recent years, the group rocked the venue. Willie’s other son, Lukas Nelson, electrified on lead guitar and vocals. Anthony LoGerfo provided backup vocals while drumming; Corey McCormick manipulated the bass guitar; multi-instrumentalist Logan Metz alternated between keyboard, lap steel, guitar, and harmonica; and Tato Melgar lent percussive support. All members of the band provided backup vocals, which provided a rich, and full sound.Van Morrison left the tour after Camden’s show two nights ago, and Sturgill Simpson replaced him for last night’s show. Sturgill—whose most recent album, A Sailor’s Guide to the Earth, earned him a Grammy for Best Country Album—sounded like a young Waylon Jennings, personifying the Outlaw Country genre with his rugged voice and cowboy stories. His band included Chuck Bartels on bass guitar, Bobby Emmett on keyboards, and Miles Miller on drums, percussion, and backing vocals. Sturgill pulled songs from across his expansive repertoire, offering songs off his new album, such as “Brace for Impact (Live a Little)”, to tunes from his first album, like the band’s set-opening “Water in a Well”. Sturgill also covered Willie Nelson’s “I’d Have to be Crazy” and T. Rex’s “The Motivator”.The unstoppable twelve-piece, Tedeschi Trucks Band, took to the stage next. Led by husband and wife, Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, the band continued to impress following several gigs on the Outlaw Festival tour as well as serving as one of the headliners of this year’s LOCKN’ Festival in August. Tedeschi Trucks Band opened with a stripped down cover of George Jones’ “Color of the Blues” with Mike Mattison, Alecia Chakour, and Susan Tedeschi singing. Susan Tedeschi was featured on John Prine’s album of duets For Better, or Worse covering this Jones tune. The band returned to their own music with two from their latest album Let Me Get By. “Anyhow” was followed with “I Want More”, in which Derek Trucks took his first solo and gave a taste of his limitless capabilities. Returning to their Allman Brothers Band roots, Trucks ripped through a sizzlin’ cover of Blind Willie McTell’s “Statesboro Blues” which later became the notorious opener for an Allman Brothers show.Slowing it down for a sweet introduction, the group performed “High and Mighty” led by a saucy Susan Tedeschi, a track that is sure to be listed on their next album. Appearing more frequently recently, TTB covered Bob Dylan’s “Lord Protect My Child” followed by a cover of Bobby Whitlock and Eric Clapton’s “Keep on Growing”, which is featured on their most recent live album, Live from the Fox Oakland. Susan said a prayer for the Carolinas in the wake of Hurricane Florence before returning to Bob Dylan’s repoitoire with “Down in the Flood”, opened and closed with wicked slide solos by Derek Trucks and featuring grisly vocals by Mike Mattison. TTB then dug up “A Part of Me” from Made Up Mind before ripping a cover of Bobby Bland’s “I Pity the Fool”, which featured an incredibly bluesy solo by Susan Tedeschi.Mike Mattison and Mark Rivers came to the front of the stage to share lead vocals on “More and More” before Susan took over for a heart-wrenching version of newer tune “Shame”, which was highlighted by the emotionally distraught power of Susan’s vocals and Derek’s fiery guitar work. To close their set, Tedeschi Trucks Band played a piano ridden tribute to Leon Russell with “Space Captain.” The song was written by Matthew Moore and was popularized by a recording by Joe Cocker on Mad Dogs & the Englishmen, which featured Leon Russell.Tedeschi Trucks Band – “More And More”[Video: Sean Roche]Willie Nelson closed the evening of music in his sincere style and trademark red bandana. Willie Nelson held center stage surrounded by his family including his sister, Bobbie Nelson, on piano and son, Lukas Nelson, on lead guitar. He bustled through his classics opening with “Whiskey River” following with “Still Is Moving to Me” and worked his way through “Good Hearted Woman”, which was co-written by Willie and Waylon Jennings. Lukas took lead vocals for an epic “Texas Flood”, which was written by Larry Davis and popularized by Stevie Ray Vaughn. Willie Nelson and his family covered another celebrated Waylon Jenning’s tune “Mama’s Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Cowboys” in which the crowd joined in to sing along with Willie. Willie then sung a heartfelt rendition of his own “Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground” before playing an upbeat “On the Road Again”, which Willie co-wrote with Johnny Cash.Willie Nelson & Lukas Nelson – “Texas Flood”last_img read more

Colbert Gets Personal With Joe Biden: VP Talks Family, Loss & Suffering

Posted on by

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Three episodes in and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert has already grabbed us right in the feels. The first night was nostalgia. Stephen Colbert was back in all his comedic glory! But Thursday night was moving, even heart-wrenching, when the new late show host interviewed Vice President Joe Biden, a humble man whose political position and sense of humor never hints at a past haunted with immense loss.In December 1972, Biden’s first wife and 1-year-old daughter died in a car crash. This past May, his eldest son Beau lost a several-year-long battle with brain cancer. It’s unimaginable, almost improbable. But not for Stephen Colbert, who related to Biden in the deepest way possible. Exactly 41 years ago today, on Sept. 11, 1974, 10-year-old Colbert lost his father and two older brothers in a plane crash.“I know that [Beau] was a great man,” Colbert told Biden during the touching segment, “and I was hoping you could tell us a story about him.”It’s a rare opportunity to tell the world about the loved ones we’ve lost, but the grieving father dropped his uplifting façade and opened up to an audience of millions. “My son was better than me,” confided Biden. “And he was better than me in almost every way.”Read “Biden Will Run For President, Says Top Dem LI Fundraiser Jon Cooper” The lingering emotional toll of his son’s loss is also why Biden remains undecided about a potential presidential run in 2016, he told Colbert.“I don’t think any man or woman should run for president unless, number one, they know exactly why they would want to be president and, number two, they can look at the folks out there and say, ‘I promise you, you have my whole heart, my whole soul, my energy and my passion to do this,’ he explained. “And I’d be lying if I said I knew I was there.”“I know that’s an emotional decision that you have to make,” said Colbert. “But, it’s going to be emotional for a lot of people if you don’t run. Sir, I just want to say that I think that your experience and your example of suffering and service is something that would be sorely missed in the race. “Not that there aren’t good people on both sides running,” he continued, “but I think we’d all be very happy if you did run, and, if you don’t, I know that your service to the country is something we should all salute.”Watch Stephen Colbert’s Moving Interview With Vice President Joe Biden Here:last_img read more

As H1N1 sweeps US, officials brace for vaccine launch

Posted on by

first_imgSep 25, 2009 (CIDRAP News) – The pandemic H1N1 virus is spreading widely through the United States, and as health officials feverishly prepare to distribute the first vaccine doses due to arrive in early October, the public should expect some initial bumps in the road, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said today.Tom Frieden, MD, the CDC’s director, told reporters at a press briefing that as health officials and manufacturers race to get the vaccine out in time to slow the quickly speading flu, which has been fueled by students’ return to school, the public should brace itself for a few initial problems with the rollout. The CDC has been predicting that about 45 million to 50 million doses of vaccine will become available in mid October, followed by about 20 million a week after that, reaching a total of 195 million in December.”It’s going to be a busy and challenging next couple weeks,” Frieden warned.Five more states report widespread fluThe CDC’s newest influenza surveillance report, released today, shows that flu activity is widespread in 26 states, five more than the previous week. Most states reporting widespread activity are in the southern half of the country, though Alaska, Washington, Minnesota, Illinois, and Pennsylvania are in the widespread category. Eleven states reported regional activity, and 12 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico reported local activity.Frieden said the good news is that officials see no change in the genetic makeup of the virus or in the pattern of pandemic H1N1 infections, which is still a moderate illness that affects mainly children and young adults ages 5 to 24.”Having the flu is no picnic, though. It can knock you right on your back for a couple of days,” Frieden said, and it can cause severe illness and death in some patients.As federal officials watch flu activity increase across the nation, they’re not sure if the season will peak early and then decline for the rest of the fall or winter or if seasonal flu viruses will circulate at their normal time, he said. Today’s surveillance report says 99% of circulating flu viruses in the United States are the pandemic H1N1 strain.The percentage of doctor visits for flu-like illnesses rose for the fifth week in a row, remaining well above the national baseline. The percentage of deaths from pneumonia and flu stayed above the seasonal baseline but was below the epidemic threshold.Three more pediatric deaths linked to the pandemic H1N1 virus were reported, two from Texas and one from Virginia.One more case of oseltamivir-resistant pandemic H1N1 was reported, raising the nation’s total to 11.Pandemic vaccine debut nearsFrieden said the earliest doses of the pandemic H1N1 vaccine will arrive at providers’ offices as early as October 6. He said the first shipments will likely be the nasal-spray FluMist version of the vaccine, because the vaccine virus grew better and the manufacturer was able to make more of it early, compared to other manufacturers.. The live attenuated vaccine from MedImmune is indicated for children and adults aged 2 through 49.Though the CDC has advised that those with underlying health conditions should be among the first to receive H1N1 vaccine, the nasal-spray vaccine is contraindicated for most high-risk patients. However, school-age children are a priority group, and health officials have said they believe the MedImmune vaccine will be a good fit with what they hope will be widely available school-based vaccination sites.A Sep 23 report in the New England Journal of Medicine suggested that FluMist seasonal vaccine was less effective than the injectable version in adults, which might cast doubt on how effective the pandemic H1N1 version of FluMist will be. Frieden said that though the study was carefully done, it covered only one flu season and one formulation of FluMist. He noted that other studies have shown that FluMist is more potent in kids than its injectable counterpart.Health experts can’t predict how the nasal-spray and injectable pandemic H1N1 vaccines will measure up against each other, but Frieden said he expects both will provide strong protection because the viruses in them appear to closely match the circulating strain.During the first couple of weeks, the demand for the vaccine may exceed the supply and lead to some frustrations, Frieden said. Also, states are handling distribution to counties and cities, and they vary in their resources and expertise for managing their vaccine supplies. He added that federal health officials have allocated $1.5 billion to assist states with immunization planning and administration activities.”In the coming weeks there is going to be some roughness,” he said.” We don’t know what uptake will be, and we also don’t know which states will have problems—but we’re working hard to identify them and help them overcome difficulties.” Frieden projected that the vaccine will be administered at 90,000 sites across the nation.Frieden said providers are being urged to use the supplies they have as soon as they get them, because supplies will quickly be replenished and will become plentiful for anyone who wants the vaccine by mid to late October.Canadian findings reverberate in USFrieden fielded questions about a news report from the Canadian Press that revealed unpublished evidence from two respected flu researchers, who examined data from British Columbia, Quebec, and Ontario, suggesting that those who received a seasonal flu shot last year had a higher risk of H1N1 infection.The findings have prompted some Canadian public health officials to consider delaying, reducing, or canceling seasonal flu vaccination campaigns this fall. Yesterday Ontario’s chief medical officer announced that the provincial health department would postpone most of its seasonal flu shot campaign until after the pandemic vaccine has been given, the Canadian Press reported. Seniors, who are at greatest risk for seasonal flu, are still slated to receive their seasonal shots in October.CDC officials have looked at their data and have not found that people who received the seasonal flu shot last year had a higher risk of pandemic H1N1 infection, Frieden said. He added that didn’t find any evidence to confirm the link in data from New York City, where he recently served as health commissioner.Frieden said he couldn’t imagine what mechanism would make patients who received seasonal flu vaccine more vulnerable to the pandemic H1N1 virus, though he said the CDC is taking the concerns very seriously. “If data is published, we’d love to see it, but nothing we’ve seen indicates that’s likely to be a problem,” he said.See also:CDC weekly influenza surveillance reportSep 24 CIDRAP News story “Unpublished Canadian data on seasonal flu shots and H1N1 stir concern”last_img read more

The Blues want to end the season with a trophy, as they are almost certain to go out in the round of 16 of the Champions League to Bayern Munich. The game against Arsenal is their last realistic chance of silverware, and Lampard will focus on the match on Sunday. The Guardian says he will then make a final decision about players such as Marcos Alonso and Emerson Palmieri, as the club prioritise the signing of a left-back.Advertisement read also:Lampard key to Werner joining Chelsea Goalkeeper Kepa Arrizalabaga’s future is also in doubt, as well as Michy Batshuayi.

Bill to help address opioid epidemic passes Indiana Senate

Posted on by

first_imgIndianapolis, In. — A bill authored by Republican state senator from Oldenburg Jean Leising that would help address the opioid epidemic facing Indiana passed the Senate unanimously.Senate Bill 133 would require a pharmacist who dispenses prescription drugs that contain or are derived from opium to list on the label that the drug is an opioid.“The opioid epidemic continues to harm our entire state, including our elderly population,” Leising said. “Many older individuals are prescribed medication for health issues, not realizing they are opioids or how addictive they can be. If passed, this bill would help improve consumer awareness and prevent our older generations from unintentionally developing a drug addiction.”In 2018, more than 5 million opioid prescriptions were prescribed in Indiana, according to data from INSPECT, Indiana’s prescription drug monitoring program.SB 133 will now move to the House of Representatives for further consideration.last_img read more

Men’s Basketball: Don’t attack Kobe King for his decision to leave UW

Posted on by

first_imgUniversity of Wisconsin men’s basketball fans, before you read this, I need you to understand — I get it. It sucks when you truly believe someone can come in and help a program, and they decide the team you love just isn’t for them.But slandering teenagers for making a decision they believe will better their chances at multi-million dollar contracts is not a good look for Wisconsin sports. Ultimately, it only hurts our chances at getting top-tier recruits down the road.This is not to say the way former Badger and current transfer-portal-player Kobe King went about leaving the program was perfect. He was arguably the team’s best player and left midway through an up-and-down season to pursue other options for personal reasons.Men’s Basketball: Making case for increasing Micah Potter’s playing timeSince being deemed eligible by the NCAA, Wisconsin forward Micah Potter has been extremely efficient for the Badgers. The junior Read…Yes, it left a gaping hole in the program — but at the same time, kids don’t grow up dreaming of missing the tournament two of their first three years in college.Simply put, if a program isn’t making runs deep into March, top-tier talent just sees their NCAA days as a stepping stone to the NBA. The Kaminsky-Dekker days gave King reason to believe in that success, but he clearly felt the standards of that era weren’t being lived up to anymore.King is as naturally gifted as any recruit to come out of Wisconsin in the last decade, aside from maybe a few guys in high school right now. He was, and may still be, a player with a legitimate shot at the NBA.With that in mind, let’s try to understand what King has seen growing up from fellow Wisconsin natives with that same potential pro status.Men’s Basketball: Look at Wisconsin’s 2020 recruiting classThe University of Wisconsin basketball program has much to be optimistic about for the 2020-21 season with a very impressive Read…Back in 2011, Sam Dekker was the No. 12 recruit in the country, according to 247 Sports. He came to Wisconsin, spent three years here and was selected as the No. 18 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.Not bad by any stretch of the imagination. But just four years later, Dekker is suiting up for Lokomotiv Kuban in Russia — hoping to earn a shot at the big leagues again.Just a year after the recruitment of Dekker, Wisconsin landed 4-star guard Bronson Koenig, who had amazing success here at UW, but has yet to get the chance to play in the NBA.That same year, Matt Thomas of Onalaska, Wisconsin headed off to Iowa State en route to becoming a 3-point specialist for the Toronto Raptors.Men’s Basketball: Badgers continue to roll at home, beat The Ohio StateThe University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team (14-10, 7-6 Big Ten) took control early and never let go en route Read…In 2013, King watched as Milwaukee native Kevon Looney headed to California to play for blue-blood University of California, Los Angeles. Looney has now won two championships with the Golden State Warriors and recently signed a $15 million contract extension.2015 comes along and both Diamond Stone and Henry Ellenson go alternative routes and become first-rounders after one year in college. Meanwhile, Brevin Pritzl is finally seeing real playing time in his fifth year at Wisconsin in 2020.So King commits in 2017, holding onto the belief that the program he grew up loving can do at least one of two things — give him the time of his life playing college basketball, or help him make millions of dollars in the NBA.Men’s Basketball: Kobe King announces departure from UW basketball programRedshirt sophomore guard Kobe King has announced his intentions to depart the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball program in a Read…But neither happens. Even worse, King has to sit back and watch while guys younger than him make major moves.He sees five-star Milwaukee guard Tyler Herro decommit from Wisconsin to hone his skills for the next level with Head Coach John Calipari at Kentucky. Now after being selected with the No. 13 pick in last year’s draft, Herro is already a key player in the running for NBA Rookie of the Year with the Miami Heat at just 20 years old.Tyrese Haliburton of Oshkosh has blossomed into a projected top ten pick in his time at Iowa State, and he was considered to be such a long-term project coming out of high school that UW didn’t even offer him.So don’t take to Twitter and say stuff like, “Quitter. Even worse is the Twitter people who support him leaving. You’re not real Badger fans,” as one fan, who I’ll keep anonymous, did.Don’t support former Badger Zak Showalter for coming at King, saying, “Some play for the name on the back, some play for the name on the front.”An axe to grindThe University of Wisconsin and the University of Minnesota have perhaps the most storied rivalry in college sports, as the Read…No one knows the true facts of King’s transfer, and he’s had no history of any sort of poor character. So don’t drag him for doing what he believes is best for his future.If someone studying business at Madison College transferred to UW because they felt it better equipped them with the skill for life after school, you wouldn’t call them a “quitter,” so why say it to Kobe King?Doing so will just hurt our chances at landing homegrown top-tier talent. We’ve already seen two elite in-state recruits, the No. 11 ranked recruit in 2020, Jalen Johnson, and the No. 3 ranked recruit in 2021, Patrick Baldwin Jr., shy away from the Badgers.There will be plenty more recruits like King, Herro, Johnson and Baldwin. And if nothing changes, they’ll leave too.last_img read more
