  • Dead & Company Releases Pro-Shot Video Of “Shakedown Street” From 2017 MSG Tour Opener [Watch]

    first_imgDead & Company continues to build momentum ahead of their 2019 summer tour by gradually sharing official audio and video footage from the band’s 2017 fall  and 2018 winter tours. So far, the band has released pro-shot videos of “Deep Elem Blues”, “If I Had The World to Give“, “Eyes Of The World“, “Iko Iko“, and “Greatest Story Ever Told“. Dead & Company’s latest release from their video vault rollout features the set-opening “Shakedown Street”, from the band’s 2017 tour opening show at New York City’s Madison Square Garden on November 12th, 2017.With a high-energy buzz floating throughout The World’s Most Famous Arena, Dead & Company opened their 2017 fall tour with a well-delivered take on “Shakedown Street”. Backed by Bill Kreutzmann, Mickey Hart, and Oteil Burbridge’s infectious rhythm section, Bob Weir took little time to jump into his vocal lead, with a nearly sold-out crowd at The Garden singing along with the original Grateful Dead member. The 12-minute rendition of “Shakedown Street” features some standout guitar work from John Mayer, as well as some experimental interplay between the rockstar lead guitarist and Weir. Later in the show, Dead & Company played “Greatest Story Ever Told” and “Beat It On Down The Line” for the first time in their post-Dead configuration.SiriusXM’s Gary Lambert also continues to provide thought-provoking liner notes to go with the release of every video and audio performance, as part of the band’s latest fan-friendly initiative. As he notes about the band’s latest video selection,Just the right song at just the right venue to open the first show of the 2017 Fall tour. The Grateful Dead introduced “Shakedown Street” live in August of 1978, just weeks after recording it for the album of the same name, which would be released that November. The song’s theme of finding a vibrant beating heart in even the most blighted urban neighborhood – helpful hint: you just gotta poke around – might apply to many a town, but it had a special resonance for audiences in New York in the late 70s, as the city was just starting to come back from the brink of total collapse. It never failed to elicit a huge response from the crowd at Madison Square Garden on the numerous occasions the Grateful Dead played it there, and that clearly still holds true for Dead and Company.Watch pro-shot video of Dead & Company’s set-opening take on “Shakedown Street” from MSG below:Dead & Company – “Shakedown Street” – 11/12/2017[Video: Dead & Company]Dead & Company fans should keep their eyes peeled on the band’s social media accounts, as more videos and audio recordings are expected to arrive in the upcoming weeks.Setlist: Dead & Company | Madison Square Garden | New York, NY | 11/12/2017Set One: Shakedown Street > Greatest Story Ever Told, Bertha, Cassidy, Beat It on Down the Line, They Love Each Other, Cumberland BluesSet Two: China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider, Ship of Fools, Lady with a Fan > Terrapin > Drums > Space > Standing on the Moon > The Other One > Casey JonesEncore One: Samson and DelilahEncore Two: Werewolves of London(First “Beat It on Down the Line”; First “Greatest Story Ever Told”)last_img read more

  • National Public Health Week highlights big returns on investment

    first_imgNational Public Health Week (NPHW), being celebrated during the first week of April, focuses on what U.S. Surgeon General Regina Benjamin calls the “extraordinary” returns that come from investments in public health initiatives.In a video marking the beginning of NPHW—organized by the American Public Health Association to raise awareness about public health—Benjamin cited examples such as routine childhood vaccinations and the widespread use of child safety seats, both of which save thousands of lives and thousands of dollars in medical costs every year.And that’s only the tip of the iceberg. HSPH’s John McDonough, professor of the practice of public health and director of the Center for Public Health Leadership, wrote in his “Health Stew” blog on Boston.com about 10 great public health achievements in the 20th century, compiled by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. HSPH has played a prominent role in many of those advances—which have all saved lives and dollars—through research, prevention initiatives, and education.For example, HSPH researchers have fought AIDS through the HSPH AIDS Initiative and malaria through the Harvard Malaria Initiative; worked to reduce the harm from other infectious diseases such tuberculosis; polio, and more; highlighted the health hazards of tobacco; and touted the importance of good nutrition for health. And, as the obesity epidemic has led to ever-greater rates of chronic disease—diabetes, heart disease, and stroke—HSPH experts have examined the nature of the problem and the best ways to prevent it.

  • FAIR START: In exhibition win over Kutztown, SU freshman Fair steals show

    first_imgJim Boeheim described C.J. Fair as ‘smart.’ Scoop Jardine referred to Fair’s playing style and performance as ‘pretty.’ And after the Syracuse freshman tied for the team-high in points with 14 in his debut Tuesday, Jardine had some words for those unfamiliar with the name of his rookie counterpart. ‘He is going to be good,’ Jardine said. ‘I’m telling you all. ‘Watch.’ Coming off the bench, Fair, a 6-foot-8 forward out of Baltimore, was one of five double-figure scorers for Syracuse in its 96-60 exhibition win over Kutztown in front of 7,371 fans inside the Carrier Dome. In the first of SU’s two tune-up contests prior to the start of its regular season, Fair and his freshman teammates made the most of their first time officially playing on Jim Boeheim Court.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text But Fair was the newcomer from whom Jardine saw intelligence throughout the game — especially on a spin dribble, while posting up, against a smaller opponent in the first half. Fair was the pretty player who got around his opponent swiftly with the spin dribble. And he was one of the highlights of SU’s night with repeated put-back dunks. The freshman forward was second on the team in field-goal percentage, going 5-for-7 from the field for a 71 percent mark. On a night when the Orange was a perfect 13-for-13 from the free-throw line, Fair converted on all four of his attempts. And in the first half, it was a display of that pretty and smart player Fair’s coaches and elders described. For Boeheim, it was an exhibition of Fair being in the right place at the right time. That is what an intelligent freshman will bring to the table. ‘C.J. is a smart player,’ Boeheim said. ‘He does get in the right places, and he is a good finisher. A good rebounder. I thought he played well.’ Although Fair shared the court most of the night with what could be his main competition for playing time in Boeheim’s rotation — sophomore forwards Mookie Jones and James Southerland — Fair was the showstopper. All because of two things. First, his solid, mature body for a freshman — one Jardine described as more of an upperclassman’s than a freshman’s. And because of those smarts. To junior forward Kris Joseph, the intelligence Fair brings to the team and Boeheim is cognizant of what was most apparent on the spin dribble. ‘That is not something he works on every day,’ Joseph said of Fair’s play. ‘That is something that is just instinct in the game. He knew he had a smaller guy on him, and he spun baseline and had the height advantage and went up with the ball. ‘(Fair is a) smart player. Very smart player. His IQ is very high.’ Sitting in the SU locker room postgame, Fair hinted at that intelligence. It was intelligence that he had accrued thanks to studying a specific play from a specific player in practice. That player — Jones — also happened to be his competition. The breakdown: Every time Jones shoots the ball, Fair knows he misses soft off the rim. It is a good opportunity to crash the boards. In his debut, Fair didn’t put back a Jones-missed 3-pointer with a dunk — Southerland did. It was just another example of the competition that is sure to be there for minutes come the regular season. But Fair did put back his share of dunks off SU misses. After one game, the smarts for the pretty player appear to be there. And after one game that was just an exhibition, he has the head start in a competition that Fair doesn’t even feel exists. ‘It is no competition between us,’ Fair said. ‘I am just out here to play my game and whatever coach needs at the time he needs, and I’ll just be waiting for him to call my number.’ [email protected] Published on November 1, 2010 at 12:00 pm Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Commentslast_img read more
