They were the perfect pick-me-up on a warm winter’s day under the hot Florida sun, charging through the anthemic “I Know You Rider”, “Sugar Magnolia,” “Sunshine Daydream,” “Fire On The Mountain,” and more. The amazing Alecia Chakour joined for “The Stranger (Two Souls In Communion)” before she took the stage later in the evening with TTB.Thanks to CHeeSeHeaDPRoDuCTioNS, you can enjoy Joe Russo’s Almost Dead’s full show in the audio link below, as well as a few choice videos: Trucks, Tedeschi, and company were again left alone to close out a strong set with Santana‘s Latin-driven “Soul Sacrifice.” When the band returned to the stage, Susan dedicated the entire encore to their fallen friend Leon Russell. It was touching to see the vocalist sing “A Song For You” with pianist Kofi Burbridge, before his brother Oteil Burbridge joined the stage for a surprising “Space Captain.” The band was once again left alone to finish out on a strong note with Joe Cocker‘s “With A Little Help From My Friends.” See below for a video of Burbridge’s fantastic sit-in.You can enjoy Tedeschi Trucks Band’s full show in the audio link below, courtesy of CHeeSeHeaDPRoDuCTioNS: Setlist: Railroad Earth | Sunshine Music Festival | Boca Raton, FL | 1/15/17:Set: Long Way To Go, Black Elk Speaks, Bird In A House, Stillwater Getaway, Day on the Sand, Dandelion Wine, Like A Buddha, Grandfather MountainWith brothers Luther Dickinson and Cody Dickinson, and bassist Danielle Nicole, the North Mississippi Allstars broke into the Main Stage for an early afternoon traditional throwdown. Powering through songs like “Shake What Your Mama Gave You”, “Spoonful” into “Mojo Working” and “Drinking Muddy Water”, featuring Luther on the homemade tin can guitar, NMA’s set was the perfect way to start the day: with dancing, singing, and plenty of jams.

A splendid mix of originals and covers, Hornsby’s soulful music was only accentuated by the beautiful setting of the sun set, after Almost Dead and before Tedeschi Trucks Band. From a lengthy “Fortunate Son” > “Comfortably Numb” > “Fortunate Son” to a “Hoorah Hooray” with Hornsby on mountain dulcimer, the evening music was well-played in the grassy field and under the starry night. The fourth installment of Sunshine Music Festival was another great success, but it’s not the end of the road for Tedeschi Trucks Band. They head on to play the Orpheum Theatre tomorrow night in Memphis, before spending three nights at the Chicago Theatre, and continuing on their way. North Mississippi Allstars will stick with them for a number of shows, with Jack Pearson, Jorma Kaukonen, and more jumping in from time to time before TTB heads out on their European tour.

Mason made it over to the main stage to close out the night with TTB singing another original, “Feelin’ Alright” spreading the feel-good vibes throughout.Railroad Earth held down the second stage for the daytime slot, churning out their positive and jubilant brand of jammy bluegrass and keeping spirits high. With an envious setlist that heavily favored older tunes, their set strung together crowdpleaser after crowdpleaser, including “Long Way To Go,” “Black Elk Speaks,” “Bird In A House,” “Dandelion Wine,” “Like A Buddha,” and “Grandfather Mountain.”Thanks to Spyder9, you can enjoy Railroad Earth’s full show in the audio link below: The fourth installment of Sunshine Music Festival was a smashing success, bringing eight bands to two stages, from St. Petersburg to Boca Raton, Florida. The Tedeschi Trucks Band-hosted event is now an annual tradition of family and friends in their home state. This year’s roster held up some incredible acts, including Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Bruce Hornsby & The Noisemakers, Mavis Staples, Dave Mason, Railroad Earth, North Mississippi Allstars, and Greyhounds. From beginning to end, the music was perfect. In the beautiful 70-degree Sunday weather of Boca Raton, FL, it was worth getting there first thing to see the music take shape from early afternoon until the starry night took over.

The first portion of their set was mostly powered by their 2016 release Let Me Get By, giving songs like “Anyhow”, “Don’t Know What It Means”, “Just As Strange” and “Crying Over You” a life of their own before the covers exploded in undeniable force. Thanks to CHeeSeHeaDPRoDuCTioNS, you can watch “Keep On Growing” in the video below:The band’s first guest of the night was Dave Mason, who sang his own original “Feelin’ Alright”, before Luther Dickinson joined the stage for a “Leavin’ Trunk” > “Volunteer Slavery” extended jam. Both sit-ins can be enjoyed in the videos below:last_img read more

How to take advantage of the “Vacation week worth” campaign, and that it has an effect for everyone. The key word is synergy

first_imgThe Minister’s announcement that the action would take place several times a year is certainly, in my opinion, a great idea, because just one week is not enough to extend the tourist season. In any case, it is important to advertise the whole project “aggressively”, in order for it to come to life in three years and to get the Croatian version of “Ferragosto”. Not one, but several. Perhaps a better option is to work for a whole month than for a week, because that way the campaign would make more sense and the main goal of the campaign would be more efficient – to extend before and after the season. Also, this is again an opportunity for continental and rural destinations to impose and position themselves. This is mostly their opportunity, although the campaign is valid for the whole of Croatia. As we announced yesterday “Vacation Week Worthy”, the action of the Ministry of Tourism and Sports and the Croatian National Tourist Board will be held in the week from 16 to 25 October 2020. The aim of the action is to direct interest in domestic travel and raise the level of tourist activity in the period outside the summer months. Manifestations as a motive for coming? Absolutely. I know, we live in the time of the corona, but that doesn’t mean it can’t organize events that are in nature or so-called. active tourism. Or maybe wine tourism in smaller groups. Focus on quality, not quantity. This important role must be played by the tourist community, to connect and generate interesting content in the destination through the synergy of all participants. You are looking for solutions, not what you can’t do. But that doesn’t mean you have to give the aforementioned discount on the accommodation service. So, in more categories you can give a discount on more services, and it is certainly much better when there would be synergies and to make one or more travel packages, which offer a variety of experiences. Thus, domestic tourists made 1,3 million arrivals and 9,6 million overnight stays this year, or about 20 percent of total tourist arrivals and overnight stays in 2020. Put together a good and interesting story and in collaboration with partners in the destination create a motive for coming. And we need to be aware, how such projects take at least three years to show up in the market. That is why it is important that as many subjects as possible get involved in this action. Ultimately, do we want to expand the tourist season or not? Of course one project is not enough, but let’s finally move forward. A domestic guest is a good guest. Get involved, because that’s the only way the whole project can have a chance to come to life. Find out more about the project HERE ROXANICH Wine & Heritage Hotel Motovun is giving away: SUPERIOR STAY EXPERIENCE,Chiavalon Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil donated by: EXCLUSIVE TASTING OF GRAND,AurA Distillery presents: Experience DISTILERY,Frankovic wines donated by: Franković tour and tasting,San Rocco – Boutique Hotel presents: ISTRIA GASTRO SANJANJE,Karlić Truffles presents: A unique experience of hunting truffles Although the just imposed reduction of 50% caused a revolt of the profession, especially the owners of accommodation facilities, because that is where they have the highest earnings. Interestingly, the CNTB had meetings with the profession in certain destinations, but did not accept the reasoned criticism of the same about the mentioned discount. Especially when we talk about smaller accommodation facilities, such as small family hotels, holiday homes and other accommodation in rural and continental Croatia. An excellent example this year was the cooperation and synergy of partners in Istria through the project Wonders of Istria. / / / PHENOMENAL SUCCESS OF MEĐIMURJE: OVER 15.000 COUPONS DISTRIBUTED AND 3.75 MILLION HRK OF TOURIST CONSUMPTION GENERATED According to data from the eVisitor system, in 2019 domestic tourists made 2,4 million tourist arrivals and 13,8 million overnight stays, or about 12 percent of total arrivals and overnight stays in 2019. In the current part of the tourist year 2020, according to current data from the eVisitor system, it is the domestic market in this challenging year that has made a strong contribution to the results achieved with a high share of 20 percent in total overnight stays. “This project is an initiative by which we want to present to our citizens all the beauties and richness of offers that Croatia has and offers throughout the year. In this corona tourist year, domestic tourists have made a great contribution to tourist traffic, and our wish is that domestic tourists in the rest of this year, but also in the years ahead, make an increasingly significant part of demand and explore numerous offers across our continent and coast. During the holiday week worth during October, numerous promotional offers will be offered, which will be combined in one place, and our intention is to continue this action and hold it regularly throughout most of the year.” pointed out the Minister of Tourism and Sports Nikolina Brnjac on the occasion of the announcement of the action “A week of rest worthwhile”.center_img Also, instead of a 50% discount, it may be a better idea to arrange the story through added value, as the Međimurje Tourist Board did through a great campaign. “Međimurje gives more”. As you can see, the key word is rounded content and synergy. If there’s one thing we’ve had to learn from this challenging year, it’s the importance of synergy. The goal of the campaign was to offer added value to tourists instead of competing in lowering prices, so that guests would receive a coupon for one of more than 250 free services in the destination for every HRK 100 spent. In the first month of the campaign, over 15.000 coupons were distributed to tourists and visitors, which generated tourist spending of 3.75 million kuna in Međimurje. Wow, right? It will be interesting to see the results, despite the covid and the fact that there is no peak season on the continent, at the end of the campaign. Mostly you have room to play with the offer. I have already given this example on one occasion, but it is good to repeat the positive examples several times. The action can involve all tourism-related entities: hotel houses, private renters, caterers, nature parks and national parks, museums, galleries, adrenaline tourism, health tourism, nautical, etc. And so it is good, as it should be otherwise , not to sell accommodation but the whole destination, ie through an interesting tourist package and content to arouse the desire to travel. No matter what, be sure to get involved in the “Vacation Week Worth” campaign. The applications of business entities that will offer their offers on the website created just for this action – tjedanodmoravrijedan.hr, which will soon be active for service users, are in progress. All business and private entities from the tourism sector such as hotels, private renters, travel agencies, restaurants, bars, national parks and nature parks, museums, galleries, carriers, rent-a-car, boat renters and entities can apply to participate in the action. health and spa tourism. Through the action A week of vacation worthwhile, it will be possible for the citizens of Croatia and all those interested to visit and get to know different parts of Croatia at 50 percent lower prices for numerous tourist services; from accommodation, transport, sights all the way to catering services and various experiences. “Everything you need for a unique trip: top accommodation, top quality food and drinks, tastings, attractions, gifts and a unique ISTRIA.”, point out in the announcement of the prize game. The award is given by six famous Istrian families who run top companies and guarantee an unforgettable trip and a real gastronomic experience. Apart from the fact that accommodation is not a motive for coming, when there are more of you, then you can complete the story and offer all-day content. The focus must be on the content and motive of the arrival. Get involved in the “Vacation Week Worth” campaignlast_img read more

Johnson, Matsuyama tied for lead at tough Olympia Fields

first_img First Published: 30th August, 2020 07:53 IST WATCH US LIVE Written By SUBSCRIBE TO US Dustin Johnson is 21 shots worse to par than he was a week ago and still looks to be the player to beat.Johnson and Hideki Matsuyama survived another demanding day at Olympia Fields, both scratching out a 1-under 69 that felt better than it looked to share the lead Saturday at the BMW Championship.Everyone else was over par going into the final round.Sunday is one last chance for some players to be among the top 30 who advance to the FedEx Cup finale, and one last round for others — like Tiger Woods — to prepare for the U.S. Open on a course that plays every bit as tough.Patrick Cantlay only hit five fairways and didn’t make a birdie as he tumbled out of a tie for the lead with a round with a 75 that left him five shots behind and might cost him a spot in the Tour Championship.Rory McIlroy had to play left-handed to escape the base of a tree in starting the back nine with a bogey, and he finished with a shot he thought was going to be long, came up 70 feet short and led to a three-putt bogey for a 73. He still was only three shots back.Jon Rahm matched the low round of the day at 66 that could have easily been one shot better if not for a blunder that even he couldn’t believe. He forgot to set a marker down on the green before picking up his golf ball on No. 5, freezing in his tracks when he realized what happened.“I was thinking of somebody else or something else … and yeah, I just picked up the ball without marking it, simple as that,” Rahm said after a round that left him only three behind. “I can’t really give you an explanation. It’s one of those things that happen in golf. Never thought it would in my professional career, but here we are.”The BMW Championship remains up for grabs, and if Sunday holds to form, it will be more about holding on than pulling away. Eleven players were separated by three shots.Johnson and Matsuyama were at 1-under 209.A week ago at The Northern Trust on a rain-softened course with little wind, Johnson was at 22-under par through three rounds and had a five-shot lead. That felt easy. This does not.Johnson had a three-shot swing go against him on the opening hole when he went rough to rough to bunker and made bogey, while Matsuyama holed a bunker shot for eagle. Matsuyama quickly built a three-shot lead with a birdie on No. 4. He made only one birdie the rest of the way.Joaquin Niemann had a 68 and was part of the group at 1-over 211 that included Adam Scott (70) and Mackenzie Hughes (69). Another shot back were the likes of Rahm, Bubba Watson, Brendon Todd and Kevin Kisner, who had 16 pars, one birdie and bogey for his round of 70.Rounds like that go a long way at Olympia Fields, the former U.S. Open course playing like one with its thick rough and rock-hard greens and enough wind to make the fairways look tighter than they are.Woods, meanwhile, had a reasonable start to his round and wasn’t losing much ground until he lost a tee shot into the water right of the 17th fairway and then smothered a fairway metal to the left. He walked across a cart path smacking the club off the concrete and twice looked like he wanted to break it. He missed a short putt for triple bogey and shot 72.Woods has yet to break par this week. One more round like that and it will be the first time in 10 years — the Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone — that he had all four rounds over par. He needed something around fourth to advance to the Tour Championship for the first time since 2018.Matsuyama is trying to end three years without a victory. Johnson is trying to win for the second time in seven days, along with positioning himself to be the top seed at the Tour Championship, which would allow him to start the tournament with a two-shot lead under the staggered start.For players like Niemann, Hughes and Scott, they are simply trying to get to East Lake in Atlanta. All of them are one round away on a golf course where small mistakes can lead to bogeys or worse on just about every hole.Image credits: AP Last Updated: 30th August, 2020 07:53 IST Johnson, Matsuyama Tied For Lead At Tough Olympia Fields Johnson and Hideki Matsuyama survived another demanding day at Olympia Fields, both scratching out a 1-under 69 that felt better than it looked to share the lead Saturday at the BMW Championshipcenter_img Associated Press Television News COMMENT LIVE TV FOLLOW USlast_img read more

Evidence Mounts Against Reprogrammed Stem Cell Papers

first_img Dennis Normile Sorry. RIKEN President Ryoji Noyori (center) apologized for “grave errors” in two recent papers by RIKEN researchers. TOKYO—Amid mounting allegations of problematic images and plagiarism, the lead author and two co-authors are considering retracting two controversial papers describing a simple method for creating stem cells known as STAP (stimulus-triggered acquisition of pluripotency). Their written statement was released during a press conference here today at which an investigating committee confirmed finding problems in the papers but stopped short of rendering a judgment on research misconduct.“I apologize for the great trouble and concerns caused to so many in society by the STAP papers published in Nature by RIKEN researchers,” RIKEN President Ryoji Noyori said with a deep bow. RIKEN, with its headquarters near Tokyo, oversees a network of nationally supported research centers, including the institute at which three of the key authors work. Meanwhile, no one has reported reproducing the team’s method of creating STAP cells.   Haruko Obokata of the RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology in Kobe and colleagues at other institutions in Japan and at Harvard Medical School in Boston, reported a surprisingly simple way of creating stem cells in an article and a letter published online on 29 January in Nature. Their method relied on briefly bathing blood cells from newborn mice in a mildly acidic solution and then tweaking culture conditions.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)Just days after the papers appeared, bloggers and contributors to the PubPeer website started raising questions about images in the two papers. Stem cell researcher Paul Knoepfler of the University of California, Davis, School of Medicine’s Sacramento campus created a page on his blog where scientists who attempted to reproduce the technique could report their results. No one has reported success.RIKEN launched an investigation on 13 February. But new allegations of problems with these and previous Obokata publications kept emerging.Today, RIKEN’s investigating committee, chaired by Shunsuke Ishii, a RIKEN molecular geneticist, unveiled what it has determined thus far. The interim report focuses on six specific allegations, and the conclusions are mixed. One problematic image is figure 1f in the research article, which appears unnaturally distorted to some critics. The panel concluded this was an artifact of image compression. “It was concluded this was not falsification or improper conduct,” the interim report says.But some claims against the papers are on target. Obokata and one of her co-authors told the committee that figures 2e and 2d in the article were used by mistake, though they did not mention that the images had appeared in Obokata’s doctoral thesis as has been alleged. Ishii emphasized that the committee so far has just determined the facts; judgments about misconduct will come after further investigation and deliberation.As for whether STAP cells exist, Ishii said that question would be left up to the scientific community to determine. Noyori said he had instructed the authors to cooperate fully with researchers at outside institutions in their efforts to replicate the STAP cell results. On 5 March, RIKEN did release technical tips for STAP cell conversion. “We tried the new protocol but so far we haven’t had success,” says Hongkui Deng, a stem cell researcher at Peking University in Beijing. But he says he is willing to keep trying, especially if further details about the method are released as promised.In their written statement, Obokata and two co-authors, Hitoshi Niwa and Yoshiki Sasai, apologized for the confusion resulting from the uncertainties and inaccuracies in the papers. “We are contacting other co-authors regarding the possibility of retracting these papers,” the trio wrote.Teruhiko Wakayama of the University of Yamanashi in Kofu, a stem cell biologist and co-author of both papers, earlier this week called for at least a temporary retraction pending an investigation. A public relations spokesperson at the university told Science that Wakayama had no comment in reaction to today’s press conference.“Should the investigative committee conclude that there was research misconduct, we will take strict disciplinary action as stipulated by our own regulations,” Noyori said in a prepared statement. Maki Kawai, director of research at RIKEN, said that the whole institute would review and strengthen its research ethics training.The story goes beyond RIKEN as allegations surfaced this week that virtually an entire chapter of Obokata’s dissertation appears to have been lifted from a National Institutes of Health website and that footnotes to another chapter have no connection to that chapter’s text. “The doctoral dissertation that is currently making the rounds in the media is not the version that has passed (the university’s) screening, but a rough draft,” Obokata told The Wall Street Journal in an e-mail. A public relations spokesperson for Waseda University said an investigation is under way.The STAP cells controversy also goes beyond the stem cell community. “[T]his mess impacts public trust and support for every field of science in Japan,” wrote Robert Geller, a University of Tokyo seismologist, in a guest post on Knoepfler’s blog. He called for Waseda to investigate how the problems with Obokata’s thesis escaped notice by reviewers. He also asked Nature to make public all the editorial correspondence (redacted to protect privacy) and every version of the papers so outsiders could judge if publishing the papers was appropriate.A Nature spokesperson told ScienceInsider by e-mail that the journal’s investigation “is still in progress.” Not all the authors would necessarily have to agree to a retraction, the spokesperson wrote. “In cases where a coauthor disagrees on a retraction, the dissent is noted in the text of the published retraction.”With reporting by Gretchen Vogel.last_img read more
