Searching The Blue[Via NPR] Back in April, The Black Keys’ guitarist and singer Dan Auerbach told Rolling Stone that he was releasing a new solo album, the music of which was inspired by the Grateful Dead. Now, we have some more information about that project with his solo band, The Arcs.The new album will be titled Yours, Dreamily, and will be released on September 4th via Nonesuch Records. The Arcs are comprised of Auerbach, alongside Richard Swift, Leon Michels, Homer Steinweiss, Nick Movshon, Kenny Vaughan and the women of Mariachi Flor De Toloache. The fourteen track offering will be “extra weird,” according to Auerbach, who said the following about the album:“I wanted everything to flow [and] be cohesive. A lot of the songs bleed one into the other, a lot like the Grateful Dead – my favorite records that they did. So I’ve got a lot of connected songs. It’s basically everything I love about music all wrapped up into one record – that’s all!”You can check out the lead single, “Stay In My Corner,” below. The video also showcases the album’s new artwork, and you can scroll below to get the full tracklisting of the new album.last_img read more

Don’t Underestimate The Impact (And Business Value) Of A Simple “Thank You” Note

first_imgWriting a thank you note is such a simple and easy gesture, we may actually undervalue its power, especially in the business world. A study published last year in the journal Psychological Science finds that there are several ways in which we underestimate the impact of saying thank you. First, we miscalculate how grateful the recipient is likely to be. Participants were asked to guess, on a scale of one to five, how happy someone will be to receive such a note. While senders typically guessed a three, recipients usually rated their response at a four or five. Read the whole story: Forbeslast_img read more

Ravens gather to commemorate Super Bowl XLVII a final time

first_img(This blog brought to you by Atlantic Remodeling. Visit www.atlanticremodeling.com to learn about their Red Cent Guarantee!)The Super Bowl ring ceremony was quite the extravagant party in Owings Mills that served as a reunion for the 2012 Ravens as well as the final big celebration of the second championship in franchise history.Yes, Baltimore’s home opener against the Cleveland Browns on Sept. 15 will include the unveiling of a second Super Bowl championship banner, but that ceremony will be overshadowed by an actual game and won’t include those who’ve moved on to other organizations but were able to return to the team’s facility to receive their lavish Super Bowl rings.Media access was limited at Friday night’s event as it was a party for members of the organization, but the Ravens provided an interesting foursome of players to speak to the media minutes after the rings were unveiled.Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs, Joe Flacco, and Torrey Smith all stood at different stages of their career as they received their championship rings with the 38-year-old Lewis speaking to reporters first. Having retired after winning his second championship, Lewis spoke as a fatherly figure throughout the postseason and once again expressed his satisfaction over not only having the opportunity to go out on top but to see his teammates experience what it meant to be a champion.“I always told them I wanted them to really feel what the confetti felt like. Now to be here, to have something that symbolizes it, it’s the ultimate because now it connects us forever,” said Lewis, who also wore his Super Bowl XXXV ring after receiving the Super Bowl XLVII one to wear on his opposite hand. “It took me 12 years to get back and get another ring. I want them to cherish what this moment feels like right now while we’re world champions.”Flacco, the Super Bowl MVP, responded only how he could with the honest assessment of a gaudy ring that includes white gold and 243 round-cut diamonds. As Lewis pointed out, Flacco won a championship in his fifth season — like the linebacker did with the 2000 Ravens — and the championship surely provided validation in the minds of those who wondered whether he could lead Baltimore to a championship.The quarterback admitted he probably won’t wear the ring, but it won’t be sitting locked up in his closet either.“It’s kind of unwearable,” said Flacco, drawing laughter from reporters. “When I see people for the first time, I’m sure they’re going to have some interest in seeing it or at least I’m going to have some interest in showing it off to them. I’m definitely going to bring it a couple of places. I wouldn’t necessarily say I’m going to wear it, but it’s pretty special.”Entering his third season, Smith represented the younger players on the roster fortunate enough not to wait long to taste Super Bowl glory in their NFL careers.And the former University of Maryland product struggled to keep his eyes off the hardware as he spoke to media.“I told you all what I was going to be like. I didn’t cry or anything, but I can see how women feel when they get a ring,” said Smith as he laughed. “It has a lot of different meanings. There will never be another season like this. We can win the Super Bowl every year while I’m in the league and there will be nothing like this one.”The most intriguing of the four to speak was 11th-year linebacker Terrell Suggs, who finally earned the Super Bowl ring he’s dreamed about after starring on the vaunted Baltimore defense for a decade. While Lewis, Flacco, and future Hall of Fame safety Ed Reed received most of the attention for different reasons, Suggs won his first championship after the most difficult season of his career in which he recovered from a torn Achilles tendon in late April and then played with a torn biceps for the final two months of the 2012 season.Always one to provide a colorful quote and having the reputation of being the class clown of the Ravens locker room, Suggs’ sincerity in describing how he felt upon finally seeing his first piece of championship jewelry was the highlight of the brief session.“To have it so close, it finally hit me what exactly we accomplished together,” said Suggs, who figured out his ring was hidden in front of him when he was discouraged from moving his seat at the beginning of the ceremony. “It didn’t take a year. It took me 11 years to get it. It took coach [John] Harbaugh from when he got here in 2008 — we’ve been chasing this. It finally paid off, all that blood given. There’s not a word that describes what I’m feeling right now and all the emotions.“The journey was long, but it was worth it. But I will tell you this, I damn sure want to feel like this again.”Owner Steve Bisciotti took care of former members of the organization by not only awarding Super Bowl rings to David and John Modell, the sons of the late owner Art Modell, but to the five members of the team’s Ring of Honor who played on the Super Bowl XXXV championship team. It appears Bisciotti is setting a precedent by giving rings to Jonathan Ogden, Peter Boulware, Michael McCrary, Matt Stover, and Jamal Lewis, but fellow Ring of Honor member Earnest Byner wasn’t included in that group.Byner was the only member of the Ring of Honor to have played for the Ravens — the Hall of Fame members of the Baltimore Colts are also honored — who did not receive a ring, so it appears this is a subtle way of ignoring the former Browns, Redskins, and Ravens running back’s inclusion, which was never accepted by fans from the time Byner was inducted in 2001.He was a favorite of the late Modell, but seeing Byner’s name listed among Ravens greats as well as the Hall of Fame Colts has always looked out of place.last_img read more

M. Brown, Onwuasor still sidelined from Thursday’s Ravens practice

first_imgOWINGS MILLS, Md. — Wide receiver Marquise Brown and inside linebacker Patrick Onwuasor remained sidelined from Thursday’s practice as the Ravens count down to their meeting with Cincinnati.Brown hurt his right ankle in the second quarter of the Week 5 win at Pittsburgh and didn’t return until the fourth quarter, registering just one catch for three yards after sustaining the injury. Offensive coordinator Greg Roman is hoping to get Brown going again after the 2019 first-round pick registered a total of 44 receiving yards over the last two games. However, he did make a terrific 11-yard touchdown catch before leaving Sunday’s game with the ailment.Many are clamoring for offensive coordinator Greg Roman to find more creative ways to get the speedy Brown the football as defenses have gone out of their way to take away the deep ball since the first two games of the season when Brown registered a combined 12 catches for 233 yards and two touchdowns.“I think we’d like to definitely deploy Marquise in a variety of ways,” Roman said. “I think if you do them all at once, that’s one way to do it. But you kind of like to evolve and add things as you go rather than just kind of throw it all out there in one game or two games. It’s a long season, so it’ll continue to evolve, his role.”Onwuasor is also dealing with a right ankle injury despite playing all but six defensive snaps against the Steelers. With the arrival of veteran Josh Bynes to play the “Mike” linebacker position last week, Onwuasor moved back to the weak side, the position he previously played next to four-time Pro Bowl selection C.J. Mosley.Should Onwuasor not be able to play Sunday, the Ravens would have to choose between second-year linebackers Kenny Young and Chris Board to play next to Bynes, who is rapidly gaining trust among Ravens coaches and teammates after a strong 2019 debut.“The biggest thing Josh brought was a calmness to the middle of the defense, and it let ‘Peanut’ play faster,” defensive coordinator Wink Martindale said. “It just really brought a calmness to our group inside there with the linebacker room.”Tight end Mark Andrews (left shoulder) and cornerback Maurice Canady (thigh) practiced on a limited basis Thursday after sitting out the first practice of the week.Meanwhile, the Bengals welcomed back wide receiver A.J. Green to practice for the first time since the seven-time Pro Bowl selection injured his ankle on the first day of training camp in July. Green will not play against the Ravens, but his limited participation improves his chances of playing in Week 7.Offensive tackle Cordy Glenn (concussion) didn’t practice after working on a limited basis Wednesday, making it likely he’ll miss his sixth straight game to begin the season.Below is Thursday’s full injury report:BALTIMOREDID NOT PARTICIPATE: WR Marquise Brown (ankle), LB Patrick Onwuasor (ankle), CB Jimmy Smith (knee), DT Brandon Williams (non-injury)LIMITED PARTICIPATION: TE Mark Andrews (shoulder), CB Maurice Canady (thigh)FULL PARTICIPATION: CB Brandon Carr (non-injury), RB Mark Ingram (non-injury), G Marshal Yanda (non-injury), S Earl Thomas (non-injury)CINCINNATIDID NOT PARTICIPATE: DT Ryan Glasgow (thigh), OT Cordy Glenn (concussion), OT Andre Smith (ankle), S Shawn Williams (thigh), DE Kerry Wynn (concussion)LIMITED PARTICIPATION: DE Carlos Dunlap (knee), WR A.J.
