Break Science To Team Up With Members Of The Disco Biscuits For [Br]eaking [Bi]scuits Run

first_imgIn October of 2016, Brooklyn Comes Alive brought together dozens of artists to play in never-before-formed supergroups for one night only in NYC. It was there that one of the most talked-about collaborations was born: [Br]eaking [Bi]scuits with Break Science’s Adam Deitch and Borahm Lee and The Disco Biscuits’ Marc Brownstein and Aron Magner. The debut performance was easily one of the most talked about musical experiences that came out of the day, ultimately inspiring the artists to come back together for a slew of dates this spring.[Br]eaking [Bi]scuits will play three shows this spring, including stops at the Westcott Theater in Syracuse, NY on 5/18, the Brooklyn Bowl in NYC on 5/19, and Gypsy Sallys in Washington, DC on 5/20.Says Brownstein of the project, “Playing with Adam and Borahm is a dream come true. These are two of the best musicians in the entire live and electronic music scene, and they have pushed the envelope to evolve the way people perceive what is possible to accomplish musically.”Adds Deitch, “Marc and Aron went from playing the Wetlands in the 90s, to curating one of the biggest and coolest festivals in the world, Camp Bisco! They have always had one foot in the electronic sound, and one foot in the jam!”Merging together the worlds of electronic, hip-hop, psychedelic grooves and heavy jams,  [Br]eaking [Bi]scuits is certainly not to be missed!5/18- Syracuse, NY Westcott Theater (tickets)5/19- Brooklyn, NY Brooklyn Bowl (tickets)5/20 – Washington, DC – Gypsy Sallys (tickets)last_img

Radiohead Bust Out “Where I End And You Begin” For The First Time In 9 Years In Kansas City

first_imgRadiohead is four shows into their 2017 world tour, and they have been rotating their catalog to include rare material almost every night. In Miami, the band busted out “Morning Bell,” “I Might Be Wrong”, and “The Tourist,” and then played “House of Cards” for the first time since 2012 in Atlanta. While the band didn’t turn out any rarities in New Orleans (though the show was still incredible), the band continued debuting long-lost material last night in Kansas City, when they performed Hail To The Thief standout “Where I End And You Begin” for the first time since 2008. Of course, the band delivered another career-spanning setlist to put together a remarkable show, with “Where I End And You Begin” as the cherry on top of another magnificent show.Check out a video of the major bust-out below, courtesy of YouTube user Hoppípolla, as well as a full setlist from the performance in Kansas City.

Poll: Three in four adults played sports when they were younger, but only one in four still play

first_imgA new NPR/Robert Wood Johnson Foundation/Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health poll finds that although almost three in four adults played sports when they were younger (73%), only one in four (25%) continue to play sports as adults.But that decline in interest doesn’t stop parents from encouraging their children to make sports a part of their lives. In fact, almost nine in ten parents whose middle school or high school aged child plays sports (89%) say that their child benefits a great deal or quite a bit from participating in sports.And, while most adults no longer play sports themselves, the majority of parents (72%) whose child plays sports say it is very likely or somewhat likely that their child will continue participating in sports when he/she becomes an adult. One in four parents (26%) whose high school aged child plays sports also hope their child will become a professional athlete.When parents were asked about the benefits that their middle school or high school aged child gets from playing sports, more than eight in ten parents whose child plays sports say their child benefits a great deal or quite a bit in his/her physical health (88%) and helping him/her learn about discipline or dedication (81%).

Lewis Hall to host first-ever LHOB event

first_imgLewis House of Pancakes (LHOP) has been a popular tradition at Notre Dame for years. Continuing the tradition, the first-ever Lewis Hall of Baking, or LHOB, will commence Friday. Unlike its fall counterpart, which serves breakfast as the primary food, LHOB will instead offer a variety of baked goods. Featured options will include Rice Krispies Treats, ice cream floats, brownies, chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies and cinnamon rolls.“LHOB is a playoff of LHOP, which is a really popular breakfast food event and has been successful for many years,” sophomore and co-signature event commissioner Jasmine Mrozek said.Lewis president and junior Marissa Brennan said there will be a donut speed-eating competition at 10:30 p.m. during the event with representatives from each dorm. “We really wanted to do [the donut eating competition] as a way of getting participation from all the halls across campus,” Brennan said. Courtesy of Marissa Brennan Lewis Hall will extend their baking tradition to a new event this year, Lewis Hall of Baking, which will offer a variety of baked goods.Brennan also talked about the success of LHOP within Lewis. “[LHOP] is a great way to get everyone involved in our hall,” Brennan said. Lewis Hall’s previous spring signature event was Chicks for Charity, which consisted of making Easter baskets and sending monetary donations to St. Margaret’s House in South Bend, a local charity that provides supplies and support to impoverished women and children. “We saw that not a lot of people were involved with [Chicks for Charity],” Brennan said. “It was a pretty brief event and not a lot of people knew about it, so we wanted to change it up this year to get more people involved.” One of the primary motivations for the rebranding of the spring signature event was to reach the wider campus, expanding their efforts beyond the dorm, Mrozek said.“[Chicks for Charity] really had trouble getting other dorms involved,” she said. “It was really just Lewis girls participating. We [wondered what else] could draw campus involvement, so we thought something similar to LHOP, hence LHOB, [could do that].”LHOB will continue to support St. Margaret’s House. “Hopefully [LHOB] will raise more money than we have in the past,” Mrozek said. Lewis started advertising for the event on Facebook by encouraging people to guess what the “B” would stand for in LHOB. Some people guessed things like burgers while others correctly guessed baking, Mrozek said. “Especially because it is a new event, it was a way to draw attention to it,” she said. Mrozek said students who attend will enjoy great food, support Lewis in its new signature event and help give back to the community. “I think students should be confident in Lewis’s cooking abilities based off of LHOP, which is always a tremendous success,” she said. “We want to show students that we could do it again but with dessert food, but not only just to come to enjoy the great food that we will have but obviously the money is going towards a great cause.”Freshman Margaret Peterson, who helped with baking the cookies ahead of time, explained her experience with LHOB preceding the event Friday night. “I had a good time working with the other people working in [Lewis],” Peterson said. ”I think that the cookies are going to be really good, and we have a lot of other [baked goods] as well. Everybody likes the cinnamon rolls.”All-you-can-eat tickets for the event are $3 and can be purchased in both North and South Dining Halls the day of the event, as well as at the door. Domer Dollars and cash are accepted. “There will be music, lots of desserts, lots of fun and it’s only $3 for all you can eat,” Brennan said. Tags: lewis hall, Lewis House of Baking, LHOBlast_img

Story time: Binghamton author hopes virtual readings will bring smiles to kids, adults during crisis

first_img“If there’s someone at home who knows how to knit or you’re a good cook or you have a good singing voice don’t be afraid to step forward for a minute,” she said. “You never know who will be watching who really needed you in that moment,” “I noticed that there were a lot of my grown friends who were watching me read these stories and I thought okay I think the grown ups are watching because they need something too” she said. “It really came because my son Eli had been reminding me about what Mr. Rogers used to say,” said Rosenberg, who is a professor at Binghamton University, “If you’re in a troubled or scary situation look for the helpers,” “Above all else I hope they get a moment of joy, a moment of normalcy, of escaping the chaos we’re all feeling around us,” she said. After noticing that adults were tuning in too she decided to expand upon her idea, reading a poem geared toward adults each night at 11:11. You can catch Liz Rosenberg’s live readings by visiting her Facebook page. She said she choose the time because of the popular tradition of making a wish at 11:11, now Rosenberg says she has her own wish. (WBNG) — Local author and English professor Liz Rosenberg is hoping to give both kids and adults something to look forward to each day while they are stuck at home during the coronavirus crisis. So Rosenberg decided to be one of those helpers by reading a children’s story on Facebook live each day at 11:11 a.m. last_img

Get off the highway and meet our beautiful one – I “discovered” the Korana and Aquatika rivers

first_imgYou know the feeling when you are “in a hurry” for the annual, and we can’t all understand that a trip to the sea is actually a vacation in itself and you should experience the trip. Yes, and travel is a vacation, so I personally like to see and experience as much as possible and I always watch what is in my way between point A and point B. So it was this time. An integral part of every holiday is monitoring the condition of the roads, I do not have to say that I of course did not follow niit checked and again I am glad I did not. Namely, after I drove from Lučki in a column in the direction of Istria, which I am visiting for the third time in a month, which tells you everything, I got stuck in a column with the announcement that it is waiting for me all the way to Istria.I looked at the woman and said: Dear, how about we go down and jump into the cold Koran? And to make sure he would dock, I immediately whispered to my son that there was an aquarium full of fish right there… And of course how my plan worked. A woman loves swimming,  son of a fish and here we are, we have already entered the Aquatika freshwater aquarium in Google Maps and set off…Luckily I didn’t listen to the navigation but looked at the signs, talked a bit, so somehow before the aquarium I wandered to the Koran and the city beach. The first picture was a landscaped park, a beautiful restaurant and a children’s playground full of animal sculptures, which was a winning combination and a sign of how we stop here.What we saw really thrilled us… Instead of the crowds and the column of cars in which we found ourselves, we are in the middle of beautiful nature, and practically in the center of one city. The breathtaking scene and that wow effect got me too. Bravo Karlovac. I drank coffee with a beautiful view of the river where people bathe. I know that this sentence may be funny to the inhabitants of Karlovac County, but it is funny to me to think of swimming in rivers from the position of my native Zagreb or the current me as a Vinkovci citizen. You don’t swim in our rivers in the city center.After coffee and my son’s introduction to the mini zoo on the playground next to the Korana, we are already in the parking lot, opening our suitcases and taking out towels and bathing suits. We expected a cold river when the river, in addition to being clean and warm, is as high as 26 degrees, which is written on the board on the beach, which is more arranged than most beaches on the Adriatic. Rescue service, showers, changing cabins, water playground, toilet that is cleaner than in some hotel resorts by the pool. Mostly bathing followed and Istria can wait today we stay here until the afternoon at least baremI visited our only freshwater aquarium the popular Aquatika which is something I definitely recommend to everyone. This institution, apart from being made according to the PS, which would be popularly said, has so much that will delight you and remain in your lasting memory. But what impressed me the most was that they actually educate, learn and are very environmentally oriented. There my son learned how dangerous it is to release all kinds of fish into rivers, how dangerous it is to let the turtles you buy in zoos into the wild because for example because of such things there are almost no more domestic turtles in Maksimir, he learned a lot about fish, and it is a little bigger. children here can connect their knowledge of chemistry with biology and ecology, but they have simply completed this whole and educated the younger generations. I was glad to hear that school tours are very frequent as it is a guarantee that future generations will hopefully be smarter than us. What impressed me the most was that they educated as many as 20 licensed guides so that they would always have people who know everything about the institution where tourists come, as well as that they only use local products and souvenirs from local producers in the souvenir shop. Thus, over 60 family farms and small businesses are included in this great tourist story. That is tourism, that tourist consumption is dispersed to the local economy. It must be the same with agriculture, but… That’s what we keep saying – tourism is actually simple and connects all the other branches. It generates consumption and creates added value for the entire local community, if one knows how. This institution is certainly the motive for coming to Karlovac and the content for which you need to get off the highway and stay in Karlovac, and then you may experience some more local stories, but I believe that the aquarium is the reason why tourists will turn off the highway. Get off the highway and get to know Croatia. Experience local stories. Ask local people what to visit what to see what to eat. This is how good tourist stories are created. Allow yourself to get “lost”. Experience local stories.Continental tourism has read more
