first_imgWhile many newcomers to Phish have dubbed the band’s July 27th, 2014 show at Merriweather Post Pavilion as “Tweezerfest,” as well as the band’s August 12th, 2018 performance at Merriweather as “Threeprise”, longtime fans know that the Tweezerfest title was bestowed on a show long ago. On May 7th, 1994, Phish settled into The Bomb Factory in Dallas, Texas, for the original Tweezerfest, which featured an experimental second set that essentially contained a full hour-plus of “Tweezer” shenanigans.The set starts off straightforwardly enough, with “Loving Cup” and “Sparkle” opening things in standard fashion. Then, the band dropped a totally monster 25-minute jam session on “Tweezer”, taking things to the brink of jamming and riffing on new ideas throughout the track. They group reeled things in for covers of The Who’s “Sparks”, Aerosmith’s “Sweet Emotion” (jam), The Breeders’ “Cannonball”, as well as “Makisupa Policeman,” all the while weaving these songs through “Tweezer.” The incredible hourlong jam session came to a close with Jon Fishman taking the lead on vocals for Prince’s “Purple Rain” before one final jam took them into, you guessed it, “Tweezer Reprise.” What a set!You can listen to the full ’94 Tweezerfest below:Phish – Bomb Factory – 5/7/1994[Video: fromtheaquarium]Setlist: Phish | The Bomb Factory | Dallas, TX | 5/7/1994Set 1: Llama, Horn[1] > Divided Sky, Mound, Fast Enough for You > Scent of a Mule, Split Open and Melt, If I Could, Suzy GreenbergSet 2: Loving Cup > Sparkle > Tweezer -> Sparks -> Makisupa Policeman -> Digital Delay Loop Jam -> Sweet Emotion Jam -> Walk Away[2] -> Cannonball Jam -> Purple Rain > Hold Your Head Up Jam -> Tweezer RepriseEncore: Amazing Grace[3], Sample in a Jar[1] Ended with a brief, atypical jam.[2] The jam after Walk Away included a Page solo and a Simpsons signal.[3] Without microphones.Teases:· It’s Ice and McGrupp and the Watchful Hosemasters teases in Walk Away· Tweezer tease in Sweet Emotion· Tweezer tease in Hold Your Head UpNotes: Horn ended with a brief, atypical jam.

first_img0Shares0000Nigeria forward Ahmed Musa celebrates after scoring against Iceland in Volgograd © AFP / Mark RALSTONVOLGOGRAD, Russian Federation, Jun 23 – Leicester City’s out-of-favour striker Ahmed Musa wrote himself into the World Cup record books by scoring twice to fire Nigeria to their first win in Russia against Iceland.The 25-year-old produced two virtuoso second-half finishes to keep the Super Eagles in the hunt for a place in the last 16 on Friday. They would guarantee progress with victory against Argentina in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday and even a draw could take them through if other results go their way.Musa became, in the process, Nigeria’s all-time highest scorer at World Cup finals with four goals and he the only man from his country to score in two different World Cups.He is also just the second African player to register two goals in two World Cup matches since Cameroon’s Roger Milla in 1990.But it has not been an easy journey for the livewire forward, who first caught the eye when, as a 21-year-old, he scored twice against Lionel Messi’s Argentina in a 3-2 group stage defeat in Brazil four years ago.Signed by the then English Premier League champions Leicester City from CSKA Moscow in 2016 for a club record £16.6 million ($22 million), he scored his first two goals in a 4-2 friendly defeat against a Barcelona side led by Messi.But it took him until October that year to open his Premier League account with a goal in a 3-1 win against Crystal Palace.He soon fell out of favour at the King Power Stadium, languishing behind England’s Jamie Vardy, Shinji Okazaki and Leonardo Ulloa in the pecking order.He was encouraged by Nigeria’s German coach Gernot Rohr to return to his old club in Russia on loan in January to get more game time ahead of the World Cup, a move Musa acknowledges has been vital.“They helped me get back to the style of play I had today. Were it not for CSKA, I would not have been in the World Cup.”His first goal against Iceland earned comparisons with Dennis Bergkamp’s injury-time wonder goal for the Netherlands that knocked Argentina out of the 1998 World Cup quarter-finals.Twenty years later Musa has the chance to eliminate Messi’s Argentina, and the pocket rocket who stands just 1.70 metres (five feet seven inches) tall is ready for the challenge.“I think scoring against Argentina isn’t that difficult for me,” he smiled after his man-of-the-match performance in Volgograd on Friday.“I can remember four years ago when Messi played in Brazil I scored two goals,” he said.“And when I transferred to Leicester I played against Barcelona and he’s on the pitch and I scored another two goals.”Musa said he would like to return to CSKA permanently, but another stunning performance could see Europe’s top clubs queueing up for his signature.“I have go back to Leicester,” he confirmed, but said he would only think about his future once Nigeria were eliminated, which he hopes will be at least another two weeks away.“Coming back to CSKA, if it’s possible, I would love to. It’s my die-hard club.“There is nothing I can pay them for the past seasons I’ve been with them other than to say: ‘Thank you very much’.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgThis is an important year for Indian sport as several athletes from a variety of disciplines are aiming to qualify for the 2012 London Olympics.Jaspal Rana has decided to pick up a pistol after four years in the quest for an elusive Olympic gold.Even as the International Olympic Committee (IOC) talked hard last week and told India that it will not tolerate the sports ministry’s interference in national sports federations, two shooters made big news as well.In the first case, it was the return of armyman Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore to the national shooting championship which made news.As one who almost chucked a national trial last year in Punjab because he felt the ranges were erratic, Rathore has come back with a bang.By winning the gold in double trap, Rathore has shown that he is ready for the big fight in 2011 and will now hope he can again make it to the national squad.At this stage, just as people wonder why Asian Games champion Ronjan Sodhi did not do well, there is no reason to panic. Rathore and Sodhi are actually now in the same boat, as both have to qualify for the London Olympics.While Rathore has again chosen to criticise the sports ministry and the National Rifle Association of India (NRAI) for their selection policy, he needs to be told the rules are the same for all shooters.If his lament is that as the Athens 2004 silver medallist, he should keep getting weightage in selection, that cannot happen. It is well known that after Abhinav Bindra won gold at the Beijing Olympics in 2008, he too was not in favour of taking part in national trials. Finally, Bindra had to take part in them and earn his spot in the rifle team in 2009.advertisementThere is no doubt Rathore shot well in the nationals and there was rhythm in his shooting. Those who have seen him shoot over the years will agree that when he goes into the final, he does get a bit cautious after the first few birds. Clearly, having been away from competition for a long time, it will take him time to get back to 100 per cent.However, now that Rathore has made a return, people will watch his progress in 2011 with keen interest. Shooting is a sport where experience counts and being away for one year doesn’t really matter. Rathore has proved it.And what about the man who we all used to call the pistol prodigy? Yes, it is exciting to hear that Jaspal Rana is back at the Karni Singh ranges in Tughlakabad and now wants to focus on an Olympic discipline called rapid fire.In the good old days, Jaspal would win a handful of medals in almost any international competition he took part in. Yet, he had stayed away from the rapid fire event.But what was more surprising was his decision to quit the sport after the Doha Asiad in 2006. Having won three gold medals then, Jaspal was the toast of the nation.However, when he stayed away from the sport for four years, we thought it was all over.I asked Jaspal what is it that has made him come back. And sure enough, he replied that not having won an Olympic gold medal didn’t allow him to walk away.At 34, with a bulging midriff to show, Jaspal knows he has to work hard on his fitness. Then again, when you are in party mode for four years, returning to competitive shooting is not easy.Jaspal knows miracles will not happen overnight and to compete in a fast shooting event means he has to really slog. The champion actually has been shooting for less than a week in the Capital and with limited ammunition. Y ET, knowing Jaspal’s sublime skills and temperament, he is sure to bounce back. “I do not know where the ammunition will come from and I am not even looking at the scores I am shooting now. I just want to win an Olympic gold,” he said.During his peak, Jaspal never cared about Olympic glory and he participated in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics just for the heck of it without putting his heart and soul into it.The hunger for Olympic glory is new and that is why Jaspal has returned to the sport after the Commonwealth Games and the Asian Games. “I am not interested in those medals, I have enough of them,” said Jaspal.What Jaspal does in the nationals next week is not important. What is important is that the shooting federation and the sports ministry ensure he doesn’t have to go begging around for ammunition.advertisementIn rapid fire, even 750 to 1,000 rounds a day during practice is not much.Then again, having seen India’s flop show in shooting at the Guangzhou Asian Games, Jaspal’s return is exciting. Whether glory comes at the 2012 Olympics or the 2016 Olympics, Jaspal just wants to give it his best shot.last_img read more

first_imgThe Women’s Media Center will honor Hillary Clinton with its first ever WMC Wonder Woman Award at the Women’s Media Awards on October 26 at a gala at the Capitale in New York City. 

Clinton joins 2017 Honorees Jane Fonda, Maria Hinojosa, Ashley Judd, April Ryan, María Elena Salinas and Gail Tifford. The WMC also will be recognizing the film, “Hidden Figures.” Maya L. Harris will host this event for the first time.Clinton is an advocate, attorney, author, First Lady, U.S. Senator, U.S. Secretary of State, and Democratic presidential candidate who has devoted her life to working on behalf of women, children and families.The Women’s Media Center is presenting its first — and only — WMC Wonder Woman Award to Clinton as she is a hero to millions in the United States and around the globe for her extraordinary accomplishments and public service. Like Wonder Woman, she seems to have superhuman strength, resilience, and courage. She also blazes new paths so that everyone has equal opportunity to pursue their dreams, and she has done much of it in the face of enemy fire.“Hillary Clinton’s actions have inspired and protected women and men on every continent,” said Gloria Steinem, co-founder of The Women’s Media Center. “She has battled negative forces and helped to maintain a fragile peace with her negotiating skill on behalf of this country and peace-seekers everywhere. She has handled all this with grace, grit, determination, integrity, humor and fortitude while remaining a steadfast feminist, advocate, activist, sister and tireless leader in the revolution. With this award, the Women’s Media Center declares Hillary Clinton our Wonder Woman.”
Clinton’s journey has been a succession of historic firsts: The first woman to ever win a presidential primary or caucus state; the first First Lady elected to the U.S. Senate; the first woman elected to statewide office in New York and, last year, becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major U.S. political party.As the Democratic candidate for president, she campaigned on a vision of America that is “stronger together” and an agenda to make our economy work for everyone, not just those at the top. She won the popular vote by a margin of nearly three million, and earned the support of nearly 66 million Americans.

As First Lady of the United States, from 1993 to 2001, Clinton championed health care for all Americans and led successful bipartisan efforts to improve the adoption and foster care systems, to reduce teen pregnancy, and to create the Children’s Health Insurance Program. She traveled to more than 80 countries to advocate for human rights, democracy, and civil society. Her speech in Beijing in 1995 inspired women worldwide and helped galvanize a global movement for women’s rights and opportunities. 
“I’ve known Hillary for decades and I was proud to be at the historic UN Conference on Women in Beijing when she made her groundbreaking speech, ‘Human rights are women’s rights and women’s rights are human rights.’ ” said Jane Fonda, WMC co-founder. “Over the years I’ve watched her break glass ceilings, champion women and girls, and fight for human rights domestically and internationally. I celebrate her fierce passion, compassion and dedication.”
In 2007, Clinton began her first historic campaign for president, and won 18 million votes. In the 2008 general election, she campaigned for Barack Obama and Joe Biden, and in December, she was nominated by President-elect Obama to be Secretary of State.“When Hillary was Secretary of State, she accepted my invitation to speak at the first TEDWomen Conference in 2010. In the TEDTalk she gave that day, a talk viewed millions of times around the world, she spoke about a global imperative to remove all barriers to women and girls and their full participation in the political, economic, social and cultural lives of their communities and countries,” said Pat Mitchell, WMC’s board chair, founder and curator, and host of TEDWomen. “Providing opportunities for women and girls to reach their highest potential — and inspiring all of us to reach ours by working together to shape the paths to leadership for all women — has been her life’s work. I am deeply honored to pay tribute to my longtime friend and to express gratitude for her vision, courage, and her unwavering commitment.” 

Clinton is the author of six best-selling books, including her newest best seller: What Happened. She also wrote the groundbreaking book on children, It Takes A Village (1996) (released as a children’s book this fall); Dear Socks, Dear Buddy (1998); An Invitation to the White House (2000); her memoir, Living History (2003); and Hard Choices (2014.)Julie Burton, president of the Women’s Media Center, said: “At a time of political attacks on women’s equality, safety, bodily integrity, and educational and economic opportunity — and when the role of independent and honest media is being undermined at the highest level of government — our honorees represent trust, truth, and excellence. Whether in front of the camera or behind it, in traditional media or online, they tell the stories of our lives, and are champions of accuracy, empathy, and democracy for women in all our diversity. We are proud to celebrate them at the Women’s Media Awards.”

Lauren Embrey is the chair of the 2017 Women’s Media Awards and former board chair of the Women’s Media Center.Women’s Media Awards Co-chairs are Loreen Arbus, Abigail Disney, Jane Fonda, Mellody Hobson, Victoria Jackson, Pat Mitchell, Robin Morgan, Susan Pritzker, Bonnie Schaefer, Regina K.

Johnson, Maria Teresa Kumar, Laura Ling and Lisa Ling, Lara Logan, Pat Mitchell, Martha Nelson, Soledad O’Brien, Salma Hayek Pinault, Elianne Ramos, Joy Reid, Yanique Richards, Anita Sarkeesian, Regina K. Scully, Mary Thom (posthumously), Marlo Thomas, Barbara Walters, Padmasree Warrior, Lindy West, and Maggie Wilderotter.The Women’s Media Center was co-founded by Jane Fonda, Robin Morgan, and Gloria Steinem, and works to make women visible and powerful in media.
