Phish Shares Pro-Shot “Carini” From Dick’s

first_imgPhish is now two-thirds done with their 7th Labor Day Weekend run at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, CO. Phish loves Dick’s, and Trey Anastasio, Jon Fishman, Mike Gordon, and Page McConnell always treat the run accordingly, serving up setlist hijinks and, most importantly, consistently incredible improvisation. Night One was strong, serving up a 5-set second set, with “No Men In No Man’s Land > Carini > Ghost > Harry Hood > Cavern.”The “Carini” offered the second 20+ minute improvisational odyssey of the set, following NMINML. After a brief “vocal jam” on the song’s first “lumpy head” line, the band kept things dark and murky where many great “Carinis” of late have eventually found their way into blissful major-key territory. Laser-like effects laced the extended jam, which hinted at a resolution to major space before Mike took the reigns and led the outfit back into dark, minor-key weirdness. Trey took the band on his back from there, piloting the ship to the biggest, most euphoric peak of the night to that point before settling into a “Have Mercy”-like reggae groove (with faint hints of “Manteca”) that finally relented into the opening notes of “Ghost.”Phish Announces Dick’s Webcast And Free Sunday StreamThe band has shared pro-shot video of “Carini,” which you can watch below:Tonight’s Phish stream is free, and will be available of Phish’s Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube channel.SETLIST: Phish | Dick’s Sporting Goods Park | Commerce City, CO | 9/1/17 SET 1: Blaze On, 555, Breath and Burning, Theme From the Bottom > Free, Tube > Roggae > MoreSET 2: No Men In No Man’s Land > Carini > Ghost > Harry Hood > CavernENCORE: The Horse > Silent in the Morning > Character Zero[photo by Jeremy Scott]last_img read more

PREMIUMKPK dumps cases as credibility slumps

first_imgGoogle Forgot Password ? The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) has revealed a plan to drop 36 investigations for lack of evidence in a move that is unlikely to shore up its already battered public image.The KPK has not publicly disclosed the list of cases for which investigations will be terminated, but they are likely to include some high-profile cases that the agency has sat on for months or even years without any sign they would be brought to court. By definition, the KPK only deals with high-level corruption scandals.The KPK has suffered huge credibility problems following a hastily enacted law governing its operation that effectively removed its independence and many of its tools, including wiretapping, to catch corruption convicts. To top it all, the House of Representatives, no friend of the KPK, named new commissioners in December who had already said they were not interested so much in per… Log in with your social account LOG INDon’t have an account?

Hancock’s Bagley overcomes obstacles to claim international free-throw title

first_img Bio Ellsworth runners compete in virtual Boston Marathon – September 16, 2020 Latest posts by Mike Mandell (see all) Latest Posts Mike MandellMike Mandell is the sports editor at The Ellsworth American and Mount Desert Islander. He began working for The American in August 2016. You can reach him via email at [email protected]center_img Hospice volunteers help families navigate grief and find hope – September 12, 2020 HANCOCK — For the past year and a half, nothing has stopped Kaylee Bagley’s mission to improve.From making less than one-third of her attempts in her first free-throw shooting competition to dealing with illnesses on two separate competition days, Bagley has faced her share of obstacles. Despite everything, the 10-year-old Hancock native has continued her drive toward becoming one of America’s best young free-throw shooters.That journey saw a rewarding conclusion Saturday as she received the international title for her age group in the Knights of Columbus Free Throw Championship. As a reward for beating out thousands of other girls from the United States and Canada, Bagley received a glass trophy commemorating her achievement at a ceremony in Brewer.“She’s come a long way from when she got started,” said Kaylee’s mother, Christine. “She loves basketball, and she’s just been so determined and stuck with it no matter what.”This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textBagley’s first competition came as an 8-year-old 18 months ago. In her first competition at the local level, she made just 7 of 25 from the free-throw line.Instead of giving up, Kaylee set an ultimate goal for herself. As she and her parents walked toward the car to go home that day, Kaylee told them her goal was to make it to nationals.“I knew I could make more shots every day if I tried,” Kaylee said. “I knew I could do it if I worked harder and just kept practicing.”Kaylee said she practiced her free throws for an hour and a half in the buildup to the competition. Her parents made trips with her each day to the Hancock Grammar School gymnasium, where Kaylee would practice free-throw shooting for an hour and a half.Kaylee Bagley poses with her trophy and medal after winning the state’s Elks Free Throw Hoop Shoot for the 8-9 age group Jan. 28, 2017, in Bath. Bagley, who made 18 of 25 free throws at the 2017 Elks event, improved her total to 23 of 25 at this year’s Knights of Columbus state championships to win the international title. FILE PHOTOEach day, Kaylee got better and better. Then, on Jan. 28, 2017, she made 18 of her 25 shots to win the 8-9 age group at the state’s Elks Free Throw Hoop Shoot in Bath.“It was amazing how much better she got in just a short amount of time,” said Kaylee’s father, Shawn. “She went in with her goal of how many she wanted to make, and she kept increasing them every day.”In 2018, though, Kaylee was faced with some untimely setbacks. When a stomach bug forced her to forego this year’s Elks competition, she was forced to compete in the Knights of Columbus event instead.Yet the day before the Knights of Columbus district championships, Kaylee fell sick once again. Fortunately, an impending snowstorm that was set to hit eastern Maine the next day forced tournament officials to postpone the event.“I remember picking her up from school that day, and I said, ‘Honey, they postponed it,’” Christine said. “All of the sudden, I see tears of joy on her face and a look that said, ‘Thank God.’”Another complicating factor was that the free-throw lines used in the Knights of Columbus competition were slightly farther back than those used in the Elks competition. It also didn’t require other contestants and spectators to sit in complete silence as competitors were shooting.To get used to the new distance, Kaylee used a tape measure to adjust the distance of the shot she had to make. Her parents and brother, Jacob, helped her adjust to the noise change by making animal sounds and creating other distractions in the background as she shot.After strong showings at the district championships and regional championships, Kaylee made 23 of 25 at the state championship to claim the Maine title. Her score there was compared to others from the same age group in the United States and Canada to determine the international champion, and after the final results were tallied over the next several weeks, Kaylee was the winner.“The first week of May, we got a letter from the Knights of Columbus corporate office in Connecticut saying she had placed the highest in her age group,” Shawn said. “She’s wanted Saturday night to come ever since.”Although Kaylee has been playing basketball since before she was kindergarten, her interest in free-throw competitions came from watching Jacob take part in them. Although she wasn’t old enough to compete when Jacob, now 11, became eligible, seeing him compete inspired her to do so herself.Despite the fact that Kaylee and Jacob have what Christine called a “rivalry” between the two of them in the sport, Jacob is also his sister’s biggest fan. When Kaylee won her first competition at Elks last year, Jacob was there applauding his sister and yelling her name in celebration. His display was so exuberant that a committee member later recognized him for his passion.“He came over and pointed to Jacob, and he said, ‘You, young man, are the reason why we do this,’” Christine said. “As a parent, to see both of them recognized like that was very special.”As for Kaylee, she will continue to play on her AAU team, Black Bear North, as well as in local recreational leagues. If her massive improvement at the free-throw line is any indication of how far she can go, the sky is the limit.“Your kids can surprise you in amazing ways,” Christine said. “When she made those seven shots the first time, we never thought she would be here then. She proved everybody wrong.” MPA approves golf, XC, field hockey, soccer; football, volleyball moved to spring – September 10, 2020last_img read more

Sykes leaves during 1st half of SU’s loss to Fighting Irish, doesn’t return to court

first_imgIn just her third game after returning from a torn ACL and meniscus, Brittney Sykes exited Syracuse’s 85-74 loss to No. 4 Notre Dame on Sunday with an unspecified injury with 6:03 left in the first half and didn’t return.After collecting a steal and running up the court, play stopped and Sykes was hobbling under the basket. As she tearfully walked to the locker room under her own power, she appeared to be limping and not putting any pressure on her right leg.After the game, SU head coach Quentin Hillsman said that he didn’t know what her status was or when he’d get any word regarding her health.“We understand that we have to finish the game and we have to play,” Hillsman said. “Our players did a very good job of putting together a couple of solid runs after that.”Sykes didn’t return to the game in the second half, but rejoined the team on the bench and was seemingly in good spirits.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textShe had been playing with a brace on her knee since returning from the knee injury she suffered on March 22, in the first round of the NCAA tournament against Chattanooga. After her first game back against Cornell on Dec. 28, she said she felt 100 percent.“It was hard for me to see because of what happened last year,” junior Brianna Butler said. “It was just shocking for it to happen in a similar manner.

Kendall Moore uses spring to gain weight, adjust from tight end to center for Syracuse

first_img Published on March 31, 2015 at 11:06 pm Contact Sam: [email protected] | @SamBlum3 Scott Shafer — surrounded by a crowd of reporters — interrupted his press conference when he was asked about Kendall Moore’s spring practice progression.“Kendall, how much you weigh?” Shafer shouted across the Iocolano-Petty Football Wing.Moore’s progress is tied directly into his weight. Since his position change from tight end last season to center in 2015, Moore has been asked to gain at least a pound a week. He started at 235 at the start of the second semester in January and hopes to get up to 270. In response to Shafer, he shouted back “252,” before chuckling.There aren’t many similarities to the position he’s changed from to the one he will assume, but Shafer, Syracuse’s head coach, said he was the most athletic of the offensive linemen. He’s been using the spring to work on his footwork and to gain weight, and his transition has gone well thus far.“My first few years playing tight end were fun, but I feel like I’m back at home playing offensive line,” Moore said, noting he played tackle in high school. “It’s coming along fairly easy.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textMoore said he’s taken on a mentee role with players like Nick Robinson, Ivan Foy, Rob Trudo and even Terrel Hunt. He said he feels like he knows the offense and is confident with the plays. His main adjustment is learning to block guys that are larger than him.At tight end, he blocked slimmer and more agile opponents. Now, he’s working on men with more girth.“I’ve picked up a lot of weight,” Moore said. “The weight is coming on, and the strength is coming too. It’s just the pounds. Once I get up to a comfortable 270, the dynamics of the position will change.”Moore said he’s going as hard as he ever did in the weight room, but has nearly doubled his daily calorie intake from 3,200 to 6,000. It consists of a lot of protein, eggs and “raw stuff.”With Syracuse shifting around its offense to include a new “hybrid” position that’s working with the tight ends and the addition of junior college transfer Trey Dunkelberger to the tight end mix, Moore has been able to fill a different need for Syracuse.Last season, he made just four catches for 31 yards. His only touchdown was what would eventually be a game-winner in a 27-26 double-overtime win over Villanova in the first game of the season.Trudo had been taking the majority of reps at center before an injury, which Moore said has given him more of a chance in practice. Tackle Omari Palmer said he expects Moore to be one of two potential starters for Saturday’s spring game along with Jason Emerich.It’s a transition for Moore, but one that’s moved along quickly.“Kendall Moore, I’m proud of him for stepping in as a center,” Hunt, SU’s starting quarterback said. “He’s doing a fantastic job. He’s taking a leadership role because Trudo’s out right now. It’s next man up.”Asst. sports editor Matt Schneidman, [email protected], contributed reporting to this article.
