The video of the eternal pairing was taken from Panic’s 4/16/11 show at the Pelham, AL venue.This video comes as the latest in an ever-flowing stream of archival live content from the southern rock jam band. Since unceremoniously beginning a continuous–almost daily–barrage of live videos at the start of 2021, the band has released clips from its 2002 documentary, 25th anniversary run of shows, concert films, interviews, vintage TV appearances, and more.The pair of songs come from brute.‘s 1995 album Nine High a Pallet, which found members of Widespread Panic—specifically John Bell, Michael Houser, Todd Nance, Dave Schools, and JoJo Hermann—teamed up with guitarist Vic Chesnutt, a frequent collaborator. Four out of five songs on the album, including “Blight”, “Protein Drink”, “Sewing Machine”, and “Let’s Get Down To Business”, found their way into Panic’s regular live repertoire. brute. would go on to release one more studio album, 2002’s Co-Bait.Related: Widespread Panic’s JoJo Hermann To Revive ‘Shut Up And Play’ Livestream Solo ShowsIn this live cut, guitarist Jimmy Herring sounds off the track with the earworm guitar riff. JB grabs a seldom-seen hybrid acoustic guitar to get in on the action as they weave through the stop-start structure of “Protein Drink”. The first half of the movement rolls on like a big tease as Widespread Panic picks up momentum, only to pump the breaks. This makes the payoff of “Sewing Machine” all the more gratifying, however, as Herring is finally let loose and able to run wild on the song to close the first set.Watch Widespread Panic pair up “Protein Drink” and “Sewing Machine” at Oak Mountain Amphitheatre in 2011.Widespread Panic – “Protein Drink” > “Sewing Machine” – Pelham, AL – 4/16/11[Video: Widespread Panic]last_img read more

Ireland’s Show Jumping Manager escapes unhurt after Dublin hotel explosion

first_img Ireland’s Show Jumping Manager escapes unhurt after Dublin hotel explosion Home  »  Disciplines News  »  Ireland’s Show Jumping Manager escapes unhurt after Dublin hotel explosion 7 August 2013, 12:00 THE manager of Ireland’s Aga Khan show jumping team, Robert Splaine, escaped unhurt in the early hours of this morning (Wednesday) when a component of a fridge exploded in the room where he and his son were staying in the Burlington Hotel, Dublin.Splaine said this morning that he had been staying in the Burlington with his son David, when they were awoken in their room at 5am by the sound of a loud explosion.“It was a bit of a shock to hear such a loud sound so close but when we switched on the light we could see no signs of what might have caused the explosion. The room, however, was soon filled by a very pungent odour and at that point the staff of the hotel came to the door and told us the hotel was being evacuated.“Fire brigades and ambulances had arrived by this stage and all the hotel guests were assembled outside. The emergency services were very good, I have to say, and looked after the situation marvellously.“We were then allowed to return to the hotel and given another room, of course. I was told later that the cause of the explosion was a gas canister, that was one of the components at the back of the empty fridge in our room. No-one was hurt and by the time it was all over it was time to get up anyway, so we didn’t get any more sleep. It’s lucky that both my son and I are early risers.”Ireland’s Aga Khan team will bid to repeat their 2012 victory when they compete on Friday (August 9) under Splaine at the Discover Ireland Dublin Horse Show at Ballsbridge Tags:last_img read more

Claude Puel: ‘Kelechi Iheanacho Not Leaving Leicester City’

first_imgLeicester City manager Claude Puel has refuted claims that summer signing Kelechi Iheanacho is close to the King Power Stadium exit.The 21-year-old, who only joined the Foxes from Manchester City five months ago, had been tipped to find first-team football elsewhere by Super Eagles of Nigeria manager Gernot Rohr.Puel says that Iheanacho remains a work in progress at Leicester, however, having started the striker just twice in the Premier League so far and the same number of times in the EFL Cup.Responding to Rohr’s comments, the Frenchman said: “We don’t know about what the national trainer said. We will see. We have discussions with different players. For example Iheanacho is a young player, arrived this season, and he will stay with us.“I cannot talk about details about players. It is important to have a good balance in the team and have a good game time for the players. Iheanacho is a young player, he signed this season with us and we have to develop him. I hope he can have more game time in the second half of the season.“For Iheanacho there has been a lot of speculation. He is a young player who arrives in a good team where there is competition and he needs to keep working and improve.”Fellow Nigeria international Ahmed Musa has also been linked with a move away, but Puel refused to comment on the ongoing speculation surrounding the former CSKA Moscow star.RelatedKelechi Iheanacho Opens Up About Displacing Jamie Vardy At LeicesterMay 27, 2020In “England”Iheanacho Reveals Plan To Displace Vardy At Leicester CityAugust 23, 2020In “England”Leicester City Boss, Brendan Rodgers Vows to Transform Erratic Kelechi IheanachoMarch 16, 2019In “England”last_img read more

States finally go after court-ordered restitution

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson“It’s a system that’s fraught with inadequacies, improper checks and balances, no procedures in place. It’s sort of a haphazard little dance that everyone dances around,” said Philadelphia District Attorney Lynne Abraham. That is changing in some places. Many states have begun taking steps to force defendants to pay up. Some, such as Arizona, are turning to outside collection agencies for help. Others, such as Pennsylvania and Colorado, are ratcheting up their own in-house collection efforts. “There was a culture in Arizona that you can blow off paying money to the courts in some areas because they aren’t going to do anything about it. So that’s the first thing we set about to change,” said Michael DiMarco, consolidated collections manager for Arizona’s courts. The amount of unpaid court costs, fines, fees and restitution in Arizona totaled $831 million at last count. But the state has managed to bring in close to $90 million since it contracted four years ago with Affiliated Computer Services of Dallas, DiMarco said. Missouri and Minnesota also use Affiliated, which duns people by mail and phone and keeps a percentage of whatever it collects. CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – A young burglar accused of burning down St. Paul United Methodist Church 13 years ago was ordered to make $2.4 million in restitution. It was, at best, wishful thinking on the part of the court. A new church was built, but no thanks to him. He coughed up a paltry $374. There is no central database that can put a total price tag on unpaid court-ordered restitution in all 50 states. However, a nationwide examination by The Associated Press shows it is clearly many billions of dollars. Often, the problem is that restitution orders are purely symbolic, the amounts so big that many defendants can’t possibly pay up. But it is also the case that many states make little effort to go after whatever money is available. “We have cases going back to 1984 that people are paying on, simply because somebody finally came and said, `You owe money,”‘ DiMarco said. In addition, Arizona feeds information from its court system computers to other state agencies, and they use it to intercept deadbeats’ state income tax refunds and prevent them from registering their vehicles until they pay up. Pennsylvania is using a new computer network to help counties customize payment plans, track overdue payments and generate delinquency letters. Unpaid fees, fines and restitution in Pennsylvania stand at a whopping $1.55 billion, according to the first-ever statewide estimate, obtained by the AP after it asked the state to run a query through the computer system. Other states have taken a variety of approaches. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!last_img
