On February 5, 1993, Warren Haynes assembled an all-star crew to play The Ritz in New York City. The evening was appropriately billed as The Ritz Power Jam and brought together a truly mind-boggling collection of talented musicians. The line-up included Warren Haynes (The Allman Brothers Band), John Popper (Blues Traveler), Noel Redding (The Jimi Hendrix Experience), Leland Schliefer (Warren Haynes Band), Chuck Leavell (Allman’s/Aquarium Rescue Unit), Bernie Worrell (Parliament Funkadelic), Jaimoe (Allman’s), Jerome Brailey (Parliament Funkadelic), and Marc Quinones (Allmans). The evening also saw Trey Anastasio, Mike Gordon, Dave Tronzo, Dave Matthews, Leroi Moore, and Boyd Tinsley sit-in with the already stacked crew.To kick off the night, the supergroup started things off with Jimmy Smith’s “Back at the Chicken Shack.” The evening’s setlist contained primarily covers, and the first set saw tunes by Chuck Barry, Taj Mahal, Elvis Presley, The Beatles, and Jimi Hendrix. Toward the end of this first set, the band also moved into a John Popper original, “Escaping,” before closing out the set with Billy Roberts’ “Hey Joe.”Booker T & The MG’s “Hip Hug-Her” started off the second set before the group moved into B.B. King’s “Rock Me Baby.” Toward the beginning of the set, Dave Tronzo appeared for Jimi Hendrix’s “Red House” and threw it down on the slide guitar. After the group moved through tunes by Bob Dylan, Buddy Holly, Eddie Cochran, and Otis Redding and Warren Haynes’ original “Just Before The Bullets Fly,” Trey Anastasio (who had played the Roseland Ballroom with Phish earlier in the evening) came out for Little Feat’s “Spanish Moon.”To end the second set, the Dave Matthews Band featuring Dave Matthews, Leroi Moore, and Boyd Tinsley came out to join Trey and the rest of the band for Jimi Hendrix’s “All Along The Watchtower,” during which Trey, Warren, and Popper switched off on vocals. For the encore, the Dave Matthews Band left, but a new friendly face appeared: Mike Gordon. Together with Trey and the rest of the supergroup, the group finished off the night with Van Morrison’s “Gloria,” with repeated teases of Sly and the Family Stone’s “Thank You For Letting Me Be Myself.”You can hear the full audio from the epic performance, courtesy of panicstream.net, and check out the setlist for yourself below, courtesy of phish.net.

Our paths in life are riddled with times of joy and sadness, challenges and triumphs. Your character determines how you chose to navigate your life’s path and its twists and turns. My colleague, Kris Biagiotti-Bridges, has been dealt a path that many would deem challenging and at times insurmountable. But, Kris, she just smiles and says in her wicked Boston accent, “I don’t know anything else.”Kris was raised on a farm, learning at a young age the definition of hard work and perseverance. After graduating with an undergrad degree in Electronic Engineering Technology, she began her career as an engineer and technical writer. Currently she is a Senior Advisor for IT Business Consulting at Dell Technologies. Yes, she is a rising female talent in the STEM industry, but there’s so much more to Kris.Soon after the birth of her daughter, Kayla, she realized her baby girl was different. At age 3, Kayla was diagnosed with mitochondrial disease after many tests and emotional trips to the emergency room. Later Kayla’s diagnosis was coupled with Trio, a diagnoses which she shares with only 20 other people worldwide.When some would slow their pace in life to accommodate a child with special needs, Kris kept running forward. In fact, running long distances! She shared her love of running and competition with Kayla, pushing her in many training runs and competitions. Kayla enthusiastically cheered her mom on in their big race, the 2013 Boston Marathon, a race no one will forget.As a focus for healing after losing her husband and Kayla’s father, at a (too) early age of 42, Kris and Kayla became the first mother/daughter team ever to run and finish the Boston Marathon. Kayla was all smiles as they approached the finish line, but moments before they crossed, the first bomb went off, pushing them sideways. In the chaos, mother and daughter were able to quickly cross the finish line as they headed for protection from the attack. Kayla’s smile never faltered though, she thought the bombs were fireworks celebrating their big finish, an optimistic attitude she definitely inherited from her mom.Today Kris continues to inspire as she shares her life with husband, Brian, who has a son of his own on the Autism Spectrum. Managing a life with two kids with special needs and a successful career in technology, Kris runs her life like one big balancing act. Her days usually begin at 4:30am and are jammed packed with Kayla’s care, her work and the needs of her family and home.Working for Dell, Kris appreciates the balance she is able to achieve in her personal and professional life. Personally, she found an employer with a flexible work culture that enables her to work when and where best fits the needs of Kayla and the family. Professionally, she is able to develop her career and potential to make an impact on the world.And an impact she is definitely making. For the past 5 years, Kris has served as chapter lead of the True Ability Employee Resource Group (ERG) at Dell Technologies, an affinity group that educates and advocates for the needs of the differently–abled. Working together they support team members and families of individuals who are differently-abled looking for improvements in areas such as accessibility, accommodations, benefits, caregiving, self-id, mentoring, hiring practices and neurodiversity. Recently Kris assumed the role of North America co-lead of the True Ability ERG helping Dell Technologies support all talent. And she doesn’t stop there, Kris further advocates through organizations such as Work without Limits, HMEA and various races to raise money for awareness and support.In recognition of International Day of Persons with Disabilities, we ask that all employers to step back and evaluate their support for the differently-abled. Whether they are parents to a special needs child or faced with their own physical or mental challenges, everyone has unique strengths and skills to contribute. As an employer, you would not want to miss out on a team member like Kris, who brings determination, commitment and innovation to her company every day. According to Kris, here are the top 6 ways employers can make their companies more attractive to individuals with disabilities in their life.Build awareness and invest in trainingUse local organizations for support (for example, HMEA)Prioritize accessibilityUtilize accessible technologyIncrease the awareness of invisible disabilities (for example, mental illness)Communicate: External and internal communication of company policies and practices – This will encourage those talented candidates to apply!!!
On March 8, three Saint Mary’s seniors spoke on a panel entitled “Black Women’s Activist: Living and Learning from Audre Lorde” at the Niles Public Library in Michigan. The panel, which featured seniors Taylor Thomas, Nina Steele and Alexandria Shambery, was organized in honor of Women’s History Month.Thomas said in an email that the trio previously discussed Audre Lorde on a panel in the fall semester of 2017.“All of us are very passionate about gender and women’s studies,” she said. “To be completely honest, Nina and I, on pulling up to the Niles Library, were extremely nervous and skeptical about the talk. Niles appears to be a predominantly white area. Plus, the library was very open, and patrons could walk by and hear what we were saying and that made us nervous. Not many people in our current political climate are open to listening to people discuss black activism and critiques of white academia.”Despite her initial reservations, Thomas said the audience was welcoming and encouraging. She said their insights were welcomed and some audience members shared stories of their own.“I was very surprised by the willingness of these women to listen to what I had to say,” she said. “It was a very inspiring experience listening to these older women and their experiences in the 1960s and watching the generations now go through similar situations that they had to endure. They asked us questions that made us feel like they truly believed that our ideas could change the world.”In her speech, Thomas encouraged people and institutions to study the work of Audre Lorde.“She stuck up for what she believed in and that was a powerful thing,” Thomas said. “Her words and poetry help implement change not just in hearts, but in classrooms as well. Simply discussing an Audre Lorde poem [on] predominantly white campuses can help expose students to subjects they may have never had to confront: police brutality, sexuality, classism. This is crucial because anti-blackness has always been seen in higher education.”Thomas said she believes it is important to discuss women’s history, especially that of black women because they are underrepresented in the American political and social sphere. She said as a black student she feels Saint Mary’s should do more to include and represent black voices on campus.“I want to see more black presence on this campus,” she said. “I want more black women. More black music. More black history, and not just in February. I want more black food — properly cooked and seasoned. I need Saint Mary’s to start reflecting that if they want to claim ‘diversity’ and ‘inclusivity.’”In the concluding statements of her speech, Thomas said Audre Lorde and black activism remind us that despite recent societal strides, there is still much progress to be made.“I believe it is important for us to continue fighting for what is right, but we will become the monster that we are fighting against if we aren’t addressing those same demons within ourselves,” she said.Steele said in an email that for her, the panel was a positive occasion.“I feel that every time people are able to come together and speak about the injustices in our world, everyone involved learns something and this causes a shift in thinking,” she said. “Whether the shift is big or small, it makes a difference, and to me, that difference is of utmost value. We should always be listening to those who are oppressed, and not [let] privileged voices tell the stories and experiences of the individuals who they marginalize.”Steele said she was inspired by the stories of women in the audience. She said she believes that for any major change in society to occur, dialogue is necessary.“The audience’s reaction somewhat shocked me because I was expecting more negative responses, but everyone in the room [was] happy with our speeches,” she said. “Many of the audience members shared their own experiences, and that was the best part of my night. We need people to come together so that we can see actual progress in the world and on our campus.”Tags: Audre Lorde, Black activism, Diversity, inclusivity, Niles Public Library
By Dialogo July 18, 2012 Pardon me, but how can I find out when a person detained in Guatemala is released? Please help me, below is my email, leave me a page or email where I can reach you. On July 16, a Guatemalan court sentenced 17 Guatemalans linked to the Mexican Los Zetas cartel to prison terms of between 8 and 83 years for a wide variety of crimes, including money laundering and conspiracy to commit three murders. The presiding judge, Jazmín Barrios, specified that the convictions are for illicit association, illegal armed association, illegal possession of firearms, illegal possession of ammunition, conspiracy to commit three murders, and money laundering, among other offenses. Those sentenced were arrested on July 10, 2011, while holding a party on a rural property in the department of Quiché, on the border with Mexico, approximately 300 km north of the capital. Among those sentenced is Kevin Overdick, who received 30 years, the son of the drug trafficker Horst Walter Overdick Mejía, arrested in April in a small town near the capital and sought for extradition by the United States. The longest sentences (83 years) were imposed on Óscar Tiul, alias “Commander Cherry,” and Sebastián Choc Cac, alias “Commander Machucazo.” Meanwhile, the shortest sentences (8 years) were imposed on Sadia Guillén Ruiz, Andrea Celeste Morales, and Berta Elena Portillo. Telephone wiretaps were fundamental in allowing the police to find out about the organization of the party and define a strategy for arresting the participants, who included high-ranking leaders of the gang. On July 13, the Public Prosecutor’s Office (MP) had requested sentences of 154 years in prison for several of the defendants. Los Zetas, whose networks extend from the southern United States to several countries in Central America, are a group created by military personnel from the Mexican Army’s elite units who deserted years ago to join the Gulf cartel, with which they are now clashing.

22SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr I remember receiving the phone call that I would be managing our organization’s first non-traditional branch. The first emotion was elation; I couldn’t believe that my organization was giving me this opportunity. The second emotion was fear—what had I gotten myself into? I was giving up an established branch with an experienced staff to develop a new concept in a new market.Although there were many tasks that needed to be done, the most important was getting our team ready. After selecting four internal candidates for the MSR positions, we immediately implemented a rigorous training schedule while they continued working in their current branches. We expanded their organization knowledge by putting them through a modified version of the shadowing program that we use for our management training program. Additionally, I taught several interactive classes on interpersonal skills. We examined best practices from Apple, Ritz Carlton, and Chick-fil-A. I had one goal for this training: to create engaged and empowered employees. While not a perfect benchmark, success would be measured by the elimination of the phrase “I need to check with my supervisor” from their vocabulary. I hate that response because it is an admission that the employee is unable to help the member. It also conditions members to constantly ask for a manager or supervisor for routine requests. I told my team early on that I wanted them to resolve issues that arose and then debrief me on their solution later, when we could discuss alternative solutions in case a similar event happened later. continue reading »
It seems like 2019 just got here, yet it’s only 5 weeks until New Year’s Day. Thanksgiving is tomorrow and you know what comes after that . . . it’s Black Friday! For some people, Black Friday signifies the day that they can finally tolerate Christmas music (I’ve been listening to it for a few weeks now). But more importantly, Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year! I don’t love the traffic that accompanies Black Friday in my hometown, but I do love deals. My standard operating procedure for this time of year is to head over to my brother’s house on Thanksgiving night, eat a little turkey (and more than a little of the sides that go with it) and then hit up Best Buy on my way back home. I’m not usually in it for the big budget items, but I love to use Thanksgiving night to stock-up my Blu-ray collection. For those of you looking to spend big money on fancy tech, get your shoes on and your debit card ready. Here are four types of big money items you may be interested in on this holiday weekend…TVs: Big screen TVs aren’t a new thing, but even if you already have one, you may need another one, or just an upgrade. This week you can get a 70” Samsung 4k TV for $549.99! This item is available at Best Buy and you don’t even have to wait until Friday. If you’re interested, you may want to act fast because the 75” version (200 bucks more) is already sold out. Target has a 65” LG 4k TV for $479.99! That price is good from Nov 28th thru Nov 30th.Laptops: I grew up a PC guy, but after making the switch to Apple, there really is no going back. Best Buy is selling a 13.3” MacBook Air this week for $899.99. That’s $200 lower than the usual price and they’re available in Silver, Space Gray, and Gold. If you’re not the Apple type and just want something to surf the net or shop online, head over to Target where you can get an 11.6” HP Chromebook for $99.99. That’s exactly half price! WHAT?!Headphones: Whether you need some earbuds for the gym or some over-ear noise-cancelling headphones to use when you’re flying, you can find just what you need on Black Friday. Target is selling Beats Studio3 headphones for $279.99 (that’s 70 bucks in savings), while Best Buy is providing $70 in savings on the Bose QuietComfort 35 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones II. Nobody does noise cancelling like Bose. On the buds front, while the new AirPods Pro aren’t on sale, Best Buy now has the regular AirPods with the wireless charging case for only $164.99. If you don’t care about wireless charging, the AirPods with the regular charging case are even cheaper at $139.99. If you’re not in the market for something fancy but just desire a pair of truly wireless earbuds, both Target and Best Buy have multiple cheaper options ranging anywhere from $30 to $100.Gaming systems: If you’ve got a gamer in the family, you know how expensive gaming systems and games can be. If your gamer is in need this year, Black Friday is the perfect opportunity to get them something they’ll love. Target has the PS4 bundle, including a controller and three games for $199.99. Best Buy has a similar price on PS4 as well as a number of different packages for the Xbox One S and Xbox One X ranging from $150 to $350.While Target’s deals are only valid from Thursday until Saturday, some of the deals at Best Buy have already begun.

Editor’s note: This article is part of a public campaign by the COVID-19 task force to raise people’s awareness about the pandemic.Topics : Gerindra politician Soepriyatno died on Friday at Pertamina Central Hospital, South Jakarta, as a result of COVID-19.“It’s true [Soepriyatno passed away]. On behalf of the Gerindra family, I want to convey condolences at the passing of a senior Gerindra figure,” Gerindra’s deputy chairman Sugiono confirmed on Friday as quoted by kompas.com.“Hopefully he [died] khusnul khotimah [with blessings ahead],” he added. He went on to say that Soepriyatno, a member of House of Representatives Commission IX overseeing health care, had been admitted to the hospital after his COVID-19 test came back positive a few weeks ago.Soepriyatno was head of Gerindra’s Regional Representatives Council (DPD) from East Java. He was born on Oct.19, 1966.He will be buried near his home in Depok, West Java.On Wednesday, more than 40 staff members of the House had tested positive for COVID-19, 18 of whom are lawmakers, House secretary-general Indra Iskandar said. He said that in addition to the 40 listed cases, some lawmakers with the virus had asked not to be included on the list.Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan demanded that House legislators stop working at the compound for three days following the cluster of diagnoses, in accordance with the capital’s large-scale social restrictions (PSBB).Read also: IDI warns of new COVID-19 clusters from jobs law protestsHe noted that Jakarta City Hall had closed down for three days last month after several administration officials had tested positive for COVID-19. He said the House did not need to close the entire compound but only the areas where the lawmakers worked.Indra, however, said that instead of closing the compound the House would sterilize the building every day.”There are things that we must decide at hearings […] So we can’t just close it down,” he said, adding that the House was in recess until Nov. 8.He said the 18 lawmakers and 22 other staff members who had tested positive for COVID-19 and had elected to be represented on the list were self-isolating at home and none had been hospitalized.COVID-19 has been no respecter of government rank with several senior officials testing positive for the disease.In March, Transportation Minister Budi Karya Sumadi was treated at Gatot Subroto Central Regional Hospital in Jakarta for COVID-19. Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Minister Edhy Prabowo was also admitted to the ICU at the same hospital after contracting the virus earlier on September.On Sept. 21, Religious Affairs Minister Fachrul Razi announced he had tested positive for COVID-19.On Friday afternoon the Health Ministry announced 4,094 new confirmed COVID-19 cases, bringing the total number of infections nationwide to 324,658.According to data released by the ministry on Friday, 97 more people have died of the disease, bringing the death toll to 11,677.The total number of recovered patients has also increased to 247,667.
