Once King and Pearson had left the stage, Warren’s fellow Allman Brothers Band vet Chuck Leavell and guitar legend John Scofield joined the band for a heartfelt rendition of “Soulshine,” which segued into “Night Time Is The Right Time.”Revolutions Come And Revolutions Go, But Warren Haynes Is Here To Stay [Interview/Album Stream]Leavell then left the stage, while Scofield remained for renditions of “Devil Likes It Slow” and “Which Way Do We Run.” Next, former Allmans percussionist Marc Quiñones joined the Sco-Mule configuration onstage for  performances of “Hottentot” and “Kind of Bird.” The band followed that up with a reprise of “Traveling Tune,” the road-weary Revolution Come…Revolution Go lament that opened the set. Finally, Mule pulled out their final surprise of the evening–Widespread Panic guitarists John Bell and Jimmy Herring–who helped lead the band through an incredible cover of Neil Young classic “Cortez The Killer” to close the show.You can listen to the full Gov’t Mule & Friends set from The Peach 2017 below courtesy of taper Ted Gakidis (uploaded by JamBuzz):You can also check out footage of Marcus King and Jack Pearson joining Mule for “Can’t You See” below, via YouTube user Sean Roche:last_img

John H. Shaw steps down

first_img Learning to find ‘quiet’ earthquakes John H. Shaw, the Harry C. Dudley Professor of Structural and Economic Geology, stepped down at the end of June, having served as chair of the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences (EPS) since 2006.Shaw, who joined the Faculty of Arts and Sciences in 1997 and is also a professor of environmental science and engineering at the John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), is a structural geologist and applied geophysicist who studies the nature of faults in the earth’s crust as they relate to energy systems and natural hazards, particularly earthquakes. One of the key directions of research for Shaw’s lab is the scientific visualization of models of the Earth’s structures around energy systems and active faults. He co-chairs the board of the Southern California Earthquake Center. Shaw also help found the EPS’s Visualization Research and Teaching Lab.Reflecting upon Shaw’s 13 years as chair, Jeremy Bloxham, the Mallinckrodt Professor of Geophysics, whose tenure as dean of FAS Science coincided with Shaw’s time as EPS chair, noted that, “John’s extraordinarily successful shepherding of the department was built upon a foundation of leading by example: his outstanding teaching, his groundbreaking research, but most of all the incredible respect he showed for everyone in the department — the undergraduates, the graduate students, the administrative and research staff, and the faculty.”Shaw talked to the Gazette about mentoring, virtual reality labs, and how climate change has shaped the curriculum.Q&AJohn H. ShawGAZETTE: It’s almost impossible to say the word “Earth” nowadays without thinking immediately of energy and climate change.SHAW: There’s always been a close connection between Earth science and geology and societally relevant issues. In the context of climate change, there’s not only a research mandate to understand this complex natural system and the ways in which we’re impacting it, but there’s also an important role to educate people about what we know and what we don’t know, and with that uncertainty, [to think about] how we can make good decisions that are going to protect our planet and ourselves.GAZETTE: How is this shaping the undergraduate curriculum in EPS?SHAW: When it comes to energy and the environment, students are increasingly aware of what’s going on in the world around them, and they are bringing these interests into the classroom. As a relatively small program, we expanded our Gen Ed offerings in recognition that issues of Earth science are pressing issues in society. We want to give students the opportunity to be educated about these topics, even if they are not pursuing our field. We also changed our model of introductory courses. It used to be there was a single introductory course, or set of courses, required of all students, but that model created a barrier to entry. Something that we’ve done to reflect the spirit of an environmental science and engineering advising cluster is that we now offer a wider sweep of introductory courses for students to take that reflect their particular interests. There are more ways into a concentration than there used to be.GAZETTE: Data visualization is essential to your research and teaching. How has the VR and teaching lab contributed to your scholarship?SHAW: My research involves scientific visualization of Earth models that we build describing both energy systems and active faults — things that lie below the surface so we can’t see them with the naked eye. There’s a real importance to having a virtual reality that describes these geological structures and systems, because we want to understand and predict their behaviors and to inform people about them.We developed the visualization laboratory more than a decade ago and at first it was dedicated to our research. It’s now become a powerful tool for teaching science in a way that’s much more interactive. The lab also has had applications beyond EPS, helping faculty and students across the University to conduct their scholarship and teaching.During the past decade we’ve partnered with the FAS Science Education program and a number of different groups to support a staff that enables use of the lab and associated VR resources across a range of disciplines. For example, we’ve partnered with Peter Der Manuelian for his course on Egyptology, enabling students to virtually be present in the Giza Plateau, and this past year we had new applications, including virtual field trips to Mars and French language classes in Paris.GAZETTE: EPS, together with environmental science and engineering, has recently created a Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging Committee. Why was this important for you as chair?SHAW: We want to be sure that we are providing a teaching and learning environment that is as welcoming as possible to all members of our community.

Perfect day for Osman

first_imgEverton midfielder Leon Osman picked the perfect way to mark his 400th appearance for the club as his first league goal since March ended high-flying West Ham’s five-match unbeaten run. The 33-year-old, who in reaching the landmark joined an elite group of a dozen others led by the great Neville Southall, capped a controlled and creative performance with the winner 17 minutes from time. His intervention prevented his side from squandering another lead this season after substitute Mauro Zarate cancelled out Romelu Lukaku’s controversial goal in a 2-1 win for the Toffees. Everton have not been entirely comfortable going ahead this season and Sylvain Distin almost contrived to present Morgan Amalfitano with an equaliser trying to pass out of defence but the Frenchman fired wide. Even though Lukaku had the ball in the net again from a quick counter-attack, it was ruled out because both he and Barkley from whom he nicked the ball off were offside, there was a growing sense that Everton had lost control. That was confirmed when McCarthy’s over-the-top tackle to take the ball and ankle of Amalfitano sparked a melee with almost every member of the West Ham team looking to confront the Republic of Ireland midfielder resulting in he and initial aggressor Reid being booked. In his first start of the season West Ham striker Andy Carroll’s most significant contribution in the first half had been a perfectly-placed raking crossfield ball to pick out full-back Carl Jenkinson whose cross was hacked clear by Phil Jagielka. However, the introduction of Zarate in the 51st minute produced an instant impact as four minutes after coming on he weaved his way to the edge of the penalty area and unleashed a shot which took a looping deflection off Jagielka and over Howard. McCarthy responded with a shot from distance which flew just over the crossbar while Amalfitano had a low shot tipped wide by Howard. The decisive moment came in the 73rd minute when, having blundered for the opening goal, the officials got it spot on as referee Mark Clattenburg played a good advantage when Collins brought down Lukaku and substitute Samuel Eto’o crossed for Osman to turn the ball home at the far post. Even then it required an instinctive reaction save with his leg by Howard to deny Collins. Press Association West Ham, who began the day in fourth place, loudly and correctly complained the first-half opener was offside and although it was allowed to stand the Toffees would have dropped another two points had it not been for Osman’s late contribution. Everton’s resources in midfield were limited with Gareth Barry and Darron Gibson sidelined by injury but Osman calmly held the central ground with James McCarthy, who showed no ill-effects from the hamstring injury which kept him out of the Republic of Ireland’s recent matches and provoked stinging criticism from assistant manager Roy Keane. West Ham, like their hosts significantly depleted by injuries and were crucially missing the attacking influence of Stewart Downing, Enner Valencia and Diafra Sakho, massed their defence with five across the back in an attempt to deny any width. Roberto Martinez attempted to counter that by deploying Kevin Mirallas, on his first appearance since September 27 after a hamstring injury, as an out-and-out winger to stretch play but that just meant there was even less room for full-back Seamus Coleman to charge into in characteristic fashion. read more
