  • Watch Widespread Panic Ring In The New Year With Col. Bruce Hampton Tribute

    first_imgWidespread Panic returned to the Fox Theatre in Atlanta over the weekend to celebrate New Year’s Eve in style. For many of the members and crew on stage, it was their first time back to the theater since the legendary passing of Col. Bruce Hampton earlier this year. Many of the musicians on stage had Bruce to thank for the destiny of their career, especially Jimmy Herring who played in Aquarium Rescue Unit with the Colonel back in the day. While the venue certainly carried the inimitable spirit of Bruce throughout the weekend, the dedicated celebration began around the time that the clock struck midnight.Before the third set began, the band’s tour manager, Steve Lopez, took center stage to thank the staff of Fox Theater and to commemorate the life of the Colonel before counting down to midnight. As contributing writer Otis Sinclair articulated in the full show review, “The new year continued the traditions of the past with three consecutive tributes to Colonel Bruce. Widespread Panic began the final set with a moving rendition of ‘Basically Frightened’ which they last played with Colonel Bruce in 2011. Jimmy Herring’s playing was especially emotional and sincere as a former bandmate to the beloved Colonel. John Bell gave an outstanding performance to capture the tone and vocal delivery for the tributes and gave the songs a Colonel-esque authenticity. The band followed with a first-time-played rendition of ‘Yield Not to Temptation’, a skippy Bobby Bland cover that also falls under the Colonel Bruce repertoire. Progressing deeper into the mystical cosmos of their long-time mentor and friend, the band then performed a scintillating version of ‘I’m So Glad’.”Watch front-row footage of “Basically Frightened” and “Yield Not To Temptation” below, courtesy of MrTopdogger.“Basically Frightened”“Yield Not To Temptation”[Video: MrTopdogger]Setlist: Widespread Panic | Fox Theatre | Atlanta, GA | 12/31/2017Set One: Let’s Get Down To Business, Who Do You Belong To?, Can’t Get High, Driving Song > Jamais Vu > Driving Song, Time Waits, WonderingSet Two: Disco > Fishwater > Tie Your Shoes > Sleepy Monkey > Chilly Water, Ribs & Whiskey, PigeonsSet Three: Basically Frightened, Yield Not To Temptation, I’m So Glad, Ain’t Life Grand*, Surprise Valley > Greta > Drums > Surprise Valley, Honey Bee, Travelin’ Light, Last DanceEncore: Expiration Day, Postcard, Porch Song[Photo: Josh Timmermans (Noble Visions) via Widespread Panic’s Facebook page]last_img read more

  • Todne Thomas named Assistant Professor of African American Religions at HDS, Radcliffe

    first_img Read Full Story Todne Thomas, an anthropologist who specializes in religion, race, and kinship, has been named Assistant Professor of African American Religions at Harvard Divinity School and a Suzanne Young Murray Assistant Professor at Harvard’s Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, effective July 1.Thomas is currently Assistant Professor of Religion at the University of Vermont, a position she has held since 2013. She has a Ph.D. in sociocultural anthropology from the University of Virginia.“I am very excited to join the Harvard community,” said Thomas. “The dynamic scholarship and social engagements undertaken by HDS faculty and students are genuinely inspiring and create a rich catalytic environment for research and teaching that I am eager to enter. I look forward to translating my interests in religion, race, sacred sociality, and space into conversations that can enhance the intellectual culture of HDS, the multidisciplinary Radcliffe community, and the University writ large.”Thomas’s current book project, based on extensive ethnographic work in Atlanta, Georgia, attempts to show how both traditionally African American and more recent Afro-Caribbean immigrant churches appeal to (or obscure) the interwoven nature of race and kinship to navigate racial discrimination.“In Todne Thomas we discovered an incredible anthropologist of religion,” said Plummer Professor of Christian Morals and Pusey Minister in the Memorial Church Jonathan Walton, who chaired the faculty search committee. “Her research is as expansive as it is innovative, theoretically sophisticated as it is vital to broader conversations in our society.”last_img read more

  • Court Hunts Korean Nat’l over US$300K Theft Case

    first_imgDefendant Maengskik Kim, the Korean national wanted by the court for stealing a US$300,000 shipment of fish. The Bushrod Island Magisterial Court in Monrovia says it is in search of the former managing director of Young IL Corporation, Maengsik Kim, a South Korean national who has not attended his alleged US$300,000 theft case.The case began about a month ago after defendant Kim was released on an unresolved bond fee posted by the Accident and Casualty Insurance Company.Kim is now wanted by the court in connection with his refusal to appear for the hearing after Magistrate James F. Dudu, did not concur with the prosecutors’ argument that the insurance company had failed to attach its recent bank statement, and other relevant documents to the bond.This, according to the court, gave rise to the denial of Kim’s bail application unless those documents were made available.When the case was first scheduled for hearing on March 26, 2019, the court records established that the lead prosecutor, Attorney Shadrach M. Kanneh, then informed Magistrate Dudu that the amount of US$300,000 involved in the matter was substantial, “therefore, we request the court to allow defendant Kim to file the appropriate criminal appearance bond. Moreover, we have been informed that Kim is poised to leave this country, and so, we request the court to take keen jurisdiction of the matter.”However, while ruling on the prosecutors’ argument, Magistrate Dudu declared that “defendant Kim should post a valid criminal appearance bond to ensure his day to day appearance, and that any failure on the part of the defendant to do so, he will be incarcerated at the Monrovia Central Prison where he will remain until all bails in requirement of fraud are fully met.”Despite granting Kim’s bail, the defendant on numerous occasions, has not appeared in court for the trial, which prompted Atty. Kanneh to request the court to hold the insurance company in “contempt for not being able to ensure the appearance of the defendant in court.”That request was later granted by Magistrate Dudu, who subsequently held the company in contempt.According to the court record, from 2017 up to and including 2018, the defendant had approached the management of IL Corporation to do business with them.The said management decided to do business with Kim by shipping containers into the country.Court records claimed that from 2017 up to, and including 2018, Kim approached the management of Global Ocean Fisheries for a partnership, to which the management agreed, and later entrusted the company into the care of Kim to export from Liberia to South Korea.Shortly afterward, the court record further claimed, Kim started to ship fish in the name of Global Ocean to South Korea but, on the contrary, Kim, without the knowledge of the company, shipped three 40 foot containers of fish valued at US$300,000, meaning US$100,000 per shipment to South Korea.“Defendant Kim misapplied the confidence reposed in him by operating under the management authority, and doing business without the approval of the management using trade mark without permission from 2017 up to 2018,” court record established.“Kim’s action had caused economic hardship and deprived their corporation of its benefits and international business, and also the revenue that the corporation was to receive,” the record added. “That defendant Kim had operated the corporation without producing any tangible funds to management,” the court record alleged.Meanwhile, up to press time last night, the whereabouts of defendant Kim remains unknown.But a complaint has been filed against Magistrate Dudu before Judge Roosevelt Z. Willie of Criminal Court ‘B’, the Temple of Justice, in connection to the failure of defendant Kim to honor his bail assurance.A complaint dated April 30, 2019, filed on behalf of Global Ocean Fisheries by Madam Roseline K.S. Giah, claimed that Magistrate Dudu had earlier arrested a representative of the insurance company and subsequently forwarded him to the Monrovia Central Prison.However, Magistrate Dudu, a day later, changed his mind and released the insurance company’s representative without producing the defendant, as provided for by the law.“When we approached Magistrate Dudu on the said issue, the magistrate could not gave reasonable justification as to the release of the surety or the producing of defendant Kim without just cause,” the complaint alleged.The complaint added, “Judge Willie should cite Magistrate Dudu to show cause why he released an executive of the Accident and Casualty Insurance Company, and he failed to bring defendant Kim before the court by strength of the law, thereby leaving my case undone.”It can be recalled that Magistrate Kennedy Peabody of the Monrovia City Court was also cited  by the same Judge Willie over the magistrate’s action to allow dismissed Guaranty Trust Bank Manager, Ayodeji Bejide, a Nigerian national, to leave the country on medical leave without the knowledge of the government.Bejide was expected to have been indicted by Criminal Court ‘C’ for the crime of aggravated assault after he threw his calculator at the face of one of his staff members in a fit of rage, during a meeting. The staff member, identified as Edward Freeman, sustained a serious injury on the lip.The decision of allowing the defendant to leave the country on medical grounds has caused the government to issue a complaint to Judge Willie who has ordered Magistrate Peabody to ensure that defendant Bejide returned to the country by October 22.Though the government placed a travel ban on Bejide, Magistrate Peabody later lifted the ban and subsequently ordered Bejide to leave the country anytime he wished because Bejide was now under a US$50,000 bail posted by the Insurance Company of Africa.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

  • Possible habitable world discovered

    first_imgAnd that “just right” temperature is one key reason astronomers think this planet could conceivably house life outside our solar system. It’s also as close to Earth-size as telescopes have ever spotted. Both elements make it the first potentially habitable planet besides Earth or Mars. Astronomers who announced the discovery of the new planet Tuesday says this puts them closer to answering the cosmic question: Are we alone? “It’s a significant step on the way to finding possible life in the universe,” said University of Geneva astronomer Michel Mayor, one of 11 European scientists on the team that found the new body. “It’s a nice discovery. We still have a lot of questions.” There’s still a lot that is unknown about the new planet, which could be deemed inhospitable to life once more is learned about it. But as galaxies go, it’s practically a neighbor. At only 120 trillion miles away, the red dwarf star that this planet circles is one of the 100 closest to Earth. The results of the discovery have not been published but have been submitted to the journal Astronomy and Astrophysics. Alan Boss, who works at the Carnegie Institution of Washington where a U.S. team of astronomers competed in the hunt for an Earth-like planet, called it “a major milestone in this business.” The planet was discovered by the European Southern Observatory’s telescope in La Silla, Chile, which has a special instrument that splits light to find wobbles in different wave lengths. Those wobbles can reveal the existence of other worlds. What they revealed is a planet circling the red dwarf star Gliese 581. Red dwarfs are low-energy, tiny stars that give off dim red light and last longer than stars like our sun. Until a few years ago, astronomers didn’t consider these stars as possible hosts of planets that might sustain life. The discovery of the new planet, named 581 c, is sure to fuel studies of planets circling similar dim stars. About 80 percent of the stars near Earth are red dwarfs. The new planet is about five times heavier than Earth, and gravity there would be 1.6 times as strong as Earth’s. Its discoverers aren’t certain whether it is rocky like Earth or if it’s a frozen ice ball with liquid water on the surface. If it is rocky like Earth, which is what the prevailing theory proposes, it has a diameter about 1 times bigger than our planet. If it is an ice ball, as Mayor suggests, it would be even bigger. Based on theory, 581 c should have an atmosphere, but what’s in that atmosphere is still a mystery and if it’s too thick that could make the planet’s surface temperature too hot, Mayor said. However, the research team believes the average temperature to be somewhere between 32 and 104 degrees and that set off celebrations among astronomers. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! WASHINGTON – European astronomers have found the most Earth-like planet outside our solar system, and here’s what it might be like to live there: The “sun” wouldn’t burn brightly. It would hang close, large and red in the sky, glowing faintly like a charcoal ember. And it probably would never set if you lived on the sunny side of the planet. You could have a birthday party every 13 days because that’s how fast this new planet circles its sunlike star. But watch the cake – you’d weigh a whole lot more than you do on Earth. You might be able to keep your current wardrobe. The temperature in this alien setting will likely be a lot like Earth’s – not too hot, not too cold. last_img read more
