David Crosby & Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit Team For Stunning “Ohio” Rendition At Newport Folk [Video]

first_img[Video: Bob McGrath]Newport Folk Festival 2018 Radio[Audio: TuneIn‘s Newport Folk Radio] Yesterday, the 59th-annual Newport Folk Festival began, taking over Newport, Rhode Island’s Fort Adams State Park. The festival has long stood out as one of the premier music events in the Northeast, consistently curating one of the most expansive and highly anticipated lineups of the summer. For Friday’s lineup, Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit headed the bill along with Sturgill Simpson, Lucius, Margo Price, St. Vincent, Ben Harper & Charlie Musselwhite, The Wood Brothers, Amanda Shires, and others.During Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit’s set, which closed down the Fort Stage on Friday evening, the band had a special surprise collaboration planned. While the beginning of the group’s set drew heavily on newer material off 2017’s The Nashville Sound as well as 2013’s Southeastern, toward the end of the performance Isbell and friends invited out the legendary folk and rock icon David Crosby to join them. Crosby first emerged for a rendition of his own “Wooden Ships”, which was featured on Crosby, Stills & Nash‘s self-titled 1969 release.From there, per the Providence Journal, Isbell took a moment to address the crowd, acknowledging “It is important for this generation of musicians to be connected to those 30 or 40 years ago who tried to change the world.”After this statement to the audience, Crosby helped Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit in a rendition of the iconic fan-favorite 1970 Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young track “Ohio”, a protest song penned by Neil Young following the Kent State shootings on May 4th, 1970. At Isbell’s insistence, the crowd sang along for the ending choruses of the song, before closing the show out in full with “If We Were Vampires”, making for a splendid end to the first day of Newport Folk Festival.You can watch a fan-shot video of David Crosby’s collaboration with Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit from day one of the Newport Folk Festival 2018 below. With the Newport Folk Festival only beginning to heat up, with tons of additional artists and collaborations planned for the rest of the weekend, you can also tune into a free stream of the event’s musical festivities below.Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit With David Crosby – “Ohio” – Newport Folk Festival 2018last_img read more

How peer reviews can bring peace of mind to the credit union movement

first_img 4SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Paul L. Mercer Paul Mercer is President of the Ohio Credit Union League and its affiliated organizations: its business subsidiary OCUL Services Corporation, its state and federal political action committees OCULAC and OCULPAC, … Web: www.ohiocreditunions.org Details Seeking peer reviews has become a standard way of life, a part of the routine decision-making process, influencing the way you make everyday choices. Before hiring a contractor to work on your house, you consult Angie’s List; when making a purchase on Amazon, you look at how many stars the product has; and you don’t eat at a new restaurant without first reading reviews on Yelp. Wouldn’t it be great if you could do the same before inking a deal with a new business partner?You’ve heard the sales pitch; the product sounds promising; next is doing your due diligence and finding other credit unions currently using the product. Rather than asking the sales representative for contact information of other credit unions, which inevitably will be clients they know are having a good experience, you can save time and gain peace of mind with honest reviews on Diligence (www.DoYourDiligence.com). Diligence is a dedicated review site where customers of organizations that support financial services providers have a voice. Through Diligence, you can discover how a possible business partner measures up to their sales-pitch promises, supports its clients in the long run, provides support and innovation, translates cost into value for customers, and more.Diligence was created by the Ohio Credit Union League’s services corporation to bring credit unions greater transparency when making complicated and high-stakes purchasing decisions (evaluating core processors, indirect lending partners, card processors, etc.), as well as the smaller ones (who to purchase office supplies from, what printer to use for your next marketing piece, etc.). It’s one more point of information to help make the best decision for your organization.We can all benefit from genuine reviews, just as we do in our personal, everyday lives. The system of sharing and utilizing these business partner peer reviews is just another example of how our industry practices a key cooperative principle; “cooperation among cooperatives.”At www.DoYourDiligence.com, you can find hundreds of reviews for your potential business partners. Reviewing these insights is completely free. Simply leave a review of a business partner that you have experience working with and all other reviews will be unlocked for you to see.last_img read more

Joe Gomez: Liverpool able to claim money from FIFA for injured defender’s wages | Football News

first_imgJoe Gomez training with England Manager Gareth Southgate says that it is too early to speculate on the extent of Gomez’s injury suffered in training – Advertisement – 1:16 – Advertisement – – Advertisement – Clubs are able to claim up to a maximum of around £130,000-a-week until the player returns to full training. However, they cannot claim anything for the first four weeks. Liverpool say Gomez has had successful surgery on the knee problem he picked up in training with England on Wednesday, and that his rehabilitation is underway.While he is likely to miss a significant part of the remainder of the season, they have put no timescale on his return.Liverpool are already without Virgil van Dijk, who has also undergone “successful” knee surgery to repair the anterior cruciate ligament damage he sustained in the Merseyside derby, leaving them short of options at centre-back.Joel Matip is the only senior centre-back fit and available for manager Jurgen Klopp.Redknapp: No Gomez, VVD puts huge stress on LiverpoolListen to the Sky Sports Pitch to Post Podcast on: Spotify | Apple | CastboxSky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp told the Pitch to Post podcast:“I’m choked for Joe Gomez if it is a bad injury. He’s a young man who has already had knee injuries and come back brilliantly. I’m a big fan of his, he seems like a really good, down to earth player. 2:13 Liverpool can claim money from FIFA to cover Joe Gomez’s basic pay while he is out injured.All players are insured when on international duty through FIFA’s club protection scheme, which applies to injuries sustained in matches and in training.- Advertisement – “I remember seeing him many years ago playing for Charlton in the FA Youth Cup and thinking ‘this is a star of the future’ and he’s certainly proved that at Liverpool. I just hope it’s not going to be anything too serious.“From an England point of view, it’s a disappointment for Gareth Southgate, but for Jurgen Klopp, if this is a long-term one and you’ve got no Virgil, no Joe Gomez, that puts an enormous amount of stress on this squad from a team that were red-hot favourites at the start of the year.“It’s certainly going to change things and for everybody else involved, that back two have been so impressive at times. It’s not been easy with no Virgil at the moment, but no Virgil and no Gomez is going to make it even more difficult.“I suffered with injuries playing for England and it’s really hard to deal with because you’re so proud that you’re there but you also know it’s costing you an enormous amount of time in your career.“I broke my ankle twice playing for England, tore my hamstring playing for England, it cost me an enormous amount of time. Of course, you wouldn’t swap it for the world but there is something so frustrating because it should be the highlight to play for your country but when you come back injured, it’s frustrating for everybody.” MANCHESTER, ENGLAND - NOVEMBER 08: Joe Gomez and Jordan Henderson of Liverpool complain to the referee Craig Pawson fafter he awards a penalty for handball during the Premier League match between Manchester City and Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium on November 8, 2020 in Manchester, United Kingdom.

Girls Sectional

first_imgIt is hard to believe the girls basketball teams are playing their sectionals.  Southeastern Indiana has been blessed with some very fine teams this year.  The sectionals should be balanced–especially the 3A one at South Dearborn.In 4A an injury hampered East Central team will still represent the area well.  They have a winning record despite suffering 4 major injuries during the season.  In 3A Greensburg is ranked #2 in the state and is definitely the favorite in the South Dearborn sectional.  However, there are no soft touches in this sectional.In 2A South Ripley is ranked very high and should be able to repeat as a sectional winner.  In 1A Jac-Cen-Del is again rated very highly and just recently knocked off South Ripley, so they are again a favorite in the 1A sectional.No matter who you are rooting for, go to the games and support the ladies.  You will see some good basketball!last_img read more
