Phish Debuts ‘A Day In The Life’ Cover At Red Rocks, On This Day In 1995

first_imgWhile Phish has settled into Dick’s Sporting Goods Park for their annual Colorado visits, there was a time in the mid-’90s when the band played the beloved Red Rocks Amphitheatre every year. Making their debut at the storied venue in 1993, Phish played the venue nine times between 1993 and 1996, plus four more times in 2009. Between the magic of Red Rocks and of a Phish show, especially during the 1990s, these performances are the stuff of legends.Our Phishtory piece for the day takes phans back to 1995, when Phish wrapped up a two-night run on this day. After laying down a solid show on night one, Phish took things to the next level with a fun performance on June 10th. Any show that opens with “Makisupa Policeman” has our attention, especially when that segues into a crunchy “Llama.”The first set featured a “Prince Caspian > It’s Ice > Free” combination, before going into a rare first-set “You Enjoy Myself” that somehow found its way into a “Hold Your Head Up” segment with a vocal jam. From there, drummer Jon Fishman took the lead on a cover of “Lonesome Cowboy Bill,” a full three years before Phish would perform the Velvet Underground album in its entirety.The second set heated up with some great jams, including a rockin’ “Mike’s Song > I Am Hydrogen > Weekapaug Groove” for the faithful. The biggest surprise of the night, however, came in the encore, when the band debuted their version of The Beatles’ “A Day In The Life.” The Beatles classic has become something of a live staple for Phish, popping up in setlists a full 65 more times throughout their career. That this show featured the debut surely cements itself in the Phish history books.Listen to the full show streaming below.[Audio: fromtheaquarium]Setlist: Phish | Red Rocks Amphitheatre | Morrison, CO | 6/10/1995Set 1: Makisupa Policeman -> Llama, Prince Caspian > It’s Ice > Free, Rift, You Enjoy Myself -> Hold Your Head Up[1] > Lonesome Cowboy Bill > Hold Your Head Up, Suzy GreenbergSet 2: Maze, Fee[2] > Uncle Pen, Mike’s Song > I Am Hydrogen > Weekapaug Groove, Amazing Grace, Sample in a JarEncore: A Day in the Life[3][1] Vocal jam.[2] Trey sang verses through megaphone.[3] Phish debut.Notes: This show marked the first Phish performance of A Day in the Life.

The Internet of Things Gets Real At Dell EMC World

first_imgFew technologies have had as much hype and publicity in the manufacturing and industrial space as the Internet of Things (IoT). Magazines feel the need to cover it. Marketing people weave it into any press release that they can.If you really want to know what the Internet of Things is, along with some of its potential, the place to go was the IoT and OEM booth at Dell EMC World Expo.The Dell Gateway was the core piece of technology connecting all the disparate elements.Control Valve Condition MonitoringThe reality of the working system for manufacturing was demonstrated by a real-world working demonstration of control valve condition monitoring—such as might be found on an oil pipeline. An instrument on the control valve communicates data such as usage, temperature, and the like to a Pi database (a standard in the industry from OSIsoft) housed in a Dell Gateway 5000 via the industrial HART IP protocol.The Gateway stores the data and uploads to the cloud, where another OSIsoft Pi database. Data is sent to a smart device such as a tablet or phone for information or action by appropriate plant personnel.Why is this important? By continuously monitoring the state of the control valve, operations and maintenance can plan for condition-based maintenance. Since so many of these are in remote locations, saving trips to the site for repair reduces both cost and risk of failure.Should there be an interruption of the communication link of the Gateway to the cloud, no problem. The Gateway stores data and then uploads upon restoration of the link.Food SafetyAnother demonstration of a real case study was from IMS Evolve. This company monitors refrigerated equipment throughout the food processing and delivery supply chain. It takes only a slight variation in temperature to ruin food meant to be refrigerated or frozen. Companies need to identify potentially contaminated food in order to target recalls. Better yet, tracking the data can reveal trends and enable customers to proactively maintain equipment thus avoiding problems.Augmented RealityPerhaps the hit of the booth was the DAQRI augmented reality hard hat. You can walk through a construction site and visualize where HVAC ducts and wiring conduits are designed to go. The contractor can detect interferences and layout problems at the design stage before wasting time and material from rework.IoT Advisory ServicesMany teams evaluating IoT implementations wonder if they can do a good implementation with internal resources or if they would be ahead to hire consultants who have been down that road before.IoT Technology Advisory Service is a new consulting offer from Dell EMC Services to help organizations determine the key capabilities and architecture required to leverage IoT data (e.g., sensors, beacons, gateways, mobile phones, wearables, connected devices). This information can be used for initiatives such as optimizing key operational processes, reducing compliance and security risks, uncovering new revenue opportunities and creating more compelling customer engagements.Open Source EcosystemAll of the above are applications of IoT that you can actually implement today. This is not some Star Trek future dream. Although there is plenty of room for dreaming up new applications.To me the significant announcement is the EdgeX Foundry open source project. The Dell EMC IoT team has assembled an impressive array of companies contributing to the ecosystem with many more on the way. A couple of those considering are ones that I do a lot of work with. I hope they join.The project features a set of open source micro services donated by Dell EMC from the FUSE project that provide the connectivity layer for the various sensor inputs and applications. The use of standards and open APIs enables an IoT platform very much like the Web where any application can join as long as they use standard, interoperable connectivity.I previously wrote about EdgeX after my interview with Jason Shepherd in Hannover, Germany.

Hughton keen on keeping Hoolahan

first_img The Irish playmaker has been linked with a move away from Carrow Road during the January, with reports of a £750,000 bid by Aston Villa, managed by former Canaries boss Paul Lambert. Norwich chief executive David McNally issued a statement on Thursday to clarify there had been no formal transfer request from any player, with the Norfolk club looking to strengthen in a bid to climb the Barclays Premier League table. Wes Hoolahan remains very much an important part of the Norwich squad, according to manager Chris Hughton. Hughton took over from Lambert in the summer of 2012, and sanctioned a new deal for Hoolahan, who had helped spearhead Norwich’s drive up from League One under the Scot. And the Canaries manager has stressed the 31-year-old remains in his plans, having deployed him in his favoured role in behind lead frontman Gary Hooper in recent Premier League matches. “Wes is a player who is first and foremost under contract. Apart from the recent FA Cup tie, he had played in the last two Premier League games,” said Hughton. “He is as important as every other player in this squad. “What we are trying to achieve here is to be as good a team as we can in the best league position we can, for that to be the case, we want to have as strong a squad as we can. “At this particular moment, Wes is very much a part of the squad.” Hughton added: “The chief executive made the statement possibly because of questions from our own supporters and the fact of what had been mentioned about transfer requests. “It was something the club felt strongly about doing.” Norwich’s England goalkeeper John Ruddy hopes Hoolahan will stay on at the club. “I think Wes is a superb player. I have got a lot of time for Wes, I think he is a fantastic little man,” said Ruddy. “There is only one Wes Hoolahan, he is brilliant to have around the place as well, so I am desperate for him to stay here, and I am sure everyone else in that dressing room is as well.” Norwich have been linked with a move for out-of-favour Everton defender John Heitinga after a potential switch to West Ham fell through, while Manchester United’s Wilfred Zaha and Newcastle winger Jonas Gutierrez are other possible targets. Hughton, though, was giving little away at his pre-match press conference ahead of the trip to Everton. “He (Heitinga) is one of a few names who have been associated with ourselves and other clubs – that is part of what we have to expect in the media and have to accept”, Hughton said. “It (Zaha) is probably a natural one because we have had some problems in midfield (with injuries), particularly out wide. “As we go further into this window, the names will become more, not only for us, but for every club. “The correct way for us is to tell you something which is fact because the majority of what you read is certainly not fact. “What will always happen is there will always be enquiries, we will make some about certain players and clubs will make some about our players. That is a normal part of the game. “The correct way and consistent way for us is to keep those as private conversations between the clubs, and that will always remain the same. “When there is anything to say about anybody when it is appropriate, we will make the announcement.” Hughton added: “We are working hard, but if you look at how much business has been done in this window so far, it is an indication of how tough it is to make sure you make the right decisions.” Norwich head to Merseyside on Saturday looking to maintain safe distance between themselves and the bottom three. Hoolahan, Bradley Johnson and captain Sebastien Bassong will all come back into contention having sat out last weekend’s 1-1 FA Cup third-round draw against Fulham. However, Hughton confirmed defender Michael Turner was set for a spell out with a hamstring strain, while midfielder Jonny Howson also remains sidelined by a niggling back problem. Midfielders Alex Tettey and Anthony Pilkington have both now returned to light training following their own injury lay-offs. Press Associationlast_img read more

Henrik Tjärnström: Collaboration makes Kindred the trend setter in global sustainability

first_img Stockholm-listed online gambling firm Kindred Group Plc has published its 2018 corporate sustainability report, outlining key long-term social responsibility commitments and targets for its enlarged enterprise.Updating stakeholders, Kindred Chief Executive Henrik Tjärnström details the enhanced responsibility placed on the online gambling group, which in 2019 services 25 million customers, across Europe, the US and Australia, operating 11 brands and employing 1,500 staff globally.One of the largest Stockholm Nasdaq tech enterprises, at present Kindred, records an average of 30 million transactions per day, having recorded an 18% increase in 2018 active customers.Having been a company executive since 2003, Tjärnström details that the Kindred is entering its most exciting phase in business, where the company has to meet numerous complex and diverse global challenges.“As an online gambling group with operations spanning literally across the world, we face interesting challenges and complex regulatory requirements wherever we set our feet,” Tjärnström added. “It keeps us on our toes and we enjoy the close relationship we have with local regulators across our markets. To ensure a steady course we have set out a clear path ahead, focused around our purpose of transforming gambling to ensure fair play, the best deal and a great experience for our players.”Leading Kindred through numerous growth phases, Tjärnström outlines the importance of the company being able to meet challenges head-on, whilst maintaining top customer experiences, product output and its diversified business model.Tjärnström points to the success of Kindred’s ‘sustainability framework’, launched in 2018 with the initiative derived from a close dialogue with key gambling and wider stakeholders.“This framework, together with our corporate values, ensure we focus on where we as a company have the biggest impact, both positive and negative, and thereby can make a substantial difference,” he continued. “The framework is integrated into our long-term strategy, objectives and business model to ensure it filters through every area of our operations.”The success of the framework has allowed Kindred to approach complex matters differently, with the company absorbing advice from multiple field experts such as Christian Kalb (Ethisport Co-Founder expert on sports integrity), Dr Mark Griffiths (Professor of Behavioural Addiction at Nottingham Trent University), Sant Yanica (Malta MGA Legal Counsel on Customer Protections) and the All-in Diversity on industry workforce inclusion and diversity.Moving forward, Tjärnström notes collaboration as a key dynamic that will help Kindred meet its tough objectives, with the CEO outlining that partnerships have helped the operator launch first to market social responsibility tools.Furthermore, at an operational level, collaboration with sustainability researchers has led to Kindred gaining better customer profiling abilities, player communications, self-perception and team-to-team feedback on customer engagements.He concluded: “With approximately one per cent of customers who cannot keep their gambling under control need to stop and we as an operator need to help them in the best way we can. We do not benefit from having them as customers and our goal is that zero revenue is derived from harmful gambling by 2023.“To reach this goal we continue to invest in tools and research, as we do not have all the answers ourselves. ‘Collaboration to Improve’ was the theme at the 2018 Sustainable Gambling Conference, which you can read more about on page 17, and we intend to continue to collaborate with all relevant stakeholders.” Kindred marks fastest route to ‘normal trading’ as it delivers H1 growth July 24, 2020 Share Mace launches EQ Connect to solve the industry’s ‘single view’ conundrum on identifying risk  August 10, 2020 StumbleUpon Submit Unibet backs #GoRacingGreen as lead racing charity  July 28, 2020 Related Articles Sharelast_img read more
