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

Young Scholars 2018

first_imgPipette, check. Lab coat, check. A sense of scientific curiosity, double check.It’s not your typical gear list for summer camp, but it covers just what Georgia high school students needed while they participated in this summer’s University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CAES) Young Scholars Program.For almost three decades, the CAES Young Scholars Program has paired the college’s researchers with high school students to foster students’ love of science and introduce them to the breadth of study that forms the foundation of agriculture, Georgia’s largest industry.During the Young Scholars Program, students are paid to work as research assistants in laboratories across the college to complete real research projects alongside their faculty mentors.This year’s 59 Young Scholars represent more than 35 high schools from across the state.“Each year, we are pleased with the level of research students are able to accomplish in six weeks,” said Victoria David, director of the CAES Office of Diversity Affairs. “Many Young Scholars alumni who got their initial exposure to science in this program currently work in labs across this campus and in industry.”The students worked in some of the most advanced laboratories on UGA’s Griffin, Tifton and Athens campuses during the six-week program. They assisted in actual research projects led by UGA faculty and, at the end of the program, they presented their findings in a research symposium. Some students may be listed as co-authors on these studies when they are published in academic journals, which is rare for students who have not completed high school.Twelve graduating Young Scholars will have the opportunity to continue their research work when they attend CAES in fall 2018.Doug Bailey, CAES assistant dean for academic affairs, urged all of the Young Scholars gathered for the program’s closing ceremony on July 13 to consider careers in science and to consider starting those careers at CAES.“I hope, again, that you take away the value of science and that science can be fun and so interesting,” Bailey said. “My parting words would be to never stop learning. Keep that energy and enthusiasm that you’ve showed these last six weeks, and you’re just going to have a blast in life.”Promoting science for 29 yearsThe Young Scholars Program began at UGA-Griffin in 1989. The program was originally intended to provide a collegiate experience to students who were not planning to attend college.Since then, the program has expanded to include scientists at UGA-Athens and UGA-Tifton. Students selected for the program are truly ready to engage in real-world research. They are matched to projects of potential interest.Because of this experience, many Young Scholars continue their research careers while attending UGA as students through the college’s undergraduate research program.For more information about the program, visit www.ysp.caes.uga.edu or email David at [email protected] application period for next year’s program will run from October 2018 to January 2019.This year’s Young Scholars:UGA-AthensRobert Anderson, North Oconee High SchoolWalter Avila, Cedar Shoals High SchoolSamantha Ayoub, Jefferson High SchoolCatrina Chamberlain, Woodland High SchoolKasey Daniels, Druid Hills High SchoolMakenzie Driggers, Effingham County High SchoolKristen Dunning, North Paulding High SchoolCole Ehlers, Clarke Central High SchoolKorbin Fears, North Springs Charter SchoolMikayla Frierson, Buford High SchoolMegan Groomes, Collins Hill High SchoolSong Khaing, Cedar Shoals High SchoolMatthew Li, Adlai E.

Dessers Rues Missed Super Eagles Debut against Sierra Leone

first_imgHeracles’ striker Cyriel Dessers – who finished the Dutch Eredivisie season as joint top scorer – has told the BBC Sports that missing out on his Nigeria debut because of the coronavirus pandemic was “painful”.Dessers, 25 – who was tied on 15 goals with Ajax’s Steven Berghuis at the top of the goal-scoring charts when the Dutch campaign ended early – received his first Super Eagles call-up in March.He was included in Gernot Rohr’s squad for an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Sierra Leone, but the match was put on hold because of the Covid-19 crisis, denying Dessers a chance to represent the country of his mother’s birth. Cyril Dessers …missed debut for Nigeria last March “It hurt me because I thought it was going to be one of the best moments of my life – or at least my career – and that it didn’t go through was really painful,” Dessers told BBC Sport Africa.When he finally joins up with the Super Eagles, it will be his first time visiting Nigeria. But the Belgium-born striker says he has been hooked on the African nation’s rich football history since he was a boy.“When I was 12 years old, during technical trainings at my academy, every player had to choose one skill or move. Some kids did the scissors kick or Ronaldinho but mine was always the Okocha moves,” he recalled. “I loved him when I was a kid.”Dessers, who studied law at the University in Belgium, also vividly remembers watching Nigeria win her third Nations Cup in 2013. “It was really special because at that moment I was in college studying. I wasn’t even a professional football player, I remember being so happy – with John Obi Mikel the captain, Emmanuel Emenike with the goals. It was a special moment for sure.”Six years later, he was thrilled to see some of his future national teammates winning bronze at Egypt 2019 and is hopeful that he will be “accepted” into Nigeria’s “really nice group.”“I know it’s a young team, a lot of players playing in Europe, so I think that the adaptation would be fine and I hope when I come into the team they accept me.“I am looking forward to seeing Victor Osimhen, I like to watch a lot of football and watch the strikers and I think he is a great striker, and I hope I can help him and support him.”Cyriel Dessers became the second African behind Ivorian Wilfred Bony to finish as top goalscorer in the Eredivisie.He joins an illustrious list of names to have accomplished the feat including Marco van Basten, Dennis Bergkamp, Ronaldo, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Luis Suarez.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img
