The Rolling Stones Debut New Blues Song At Desert Trip [Watch]

first_imgIt’s hard to imagine that The Rolling Stones, a band over 50 years into their esteemed career, could ever have something new to offer fans. And yet, that’s what has happened the last two weekends, as the premier rockers treated fans to some unexpected bust outs and a cover of The Beatles’ “Come Together” during weekend one.Still, there’s plenty of gas in the Stones’ tank, as they also recently announced plans to release a new blues-based album called Blue & Lonesome on December 2nd. The band shared a portion of the first track from the album with that announcement, a Little Walter original called “Just Your Fool.” Thus, with the Desert Trip stage set, they debuted “Just Your Fool” live for the first time in their career.The set was jam packed with Stones classics from start to finish as well, opening with “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” and closing with “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” as two prime examples. Check out a handful of videos from the show below (courtesy of prestoff2000 on YouTube), including the debut of “Just Your Fool,” below. Edit this setlist | More The Rolling Stones setlists The full setlist can be seen below. Desert Trip continues today with performances from Paul McCartney and Neil Young + Promise of the Real.last_img read more

Weekly success at Cocopah has Toth confident before first competitive trip to Super Nationals

first_imgHOLTVILLE, Calif. – Chris Toth crewed for Lance Mari and Jason Noll when he made his first trip to Boone Speedway last September.He’ll bring his Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod along when he returns with MRT Race Cars teammate Mari for the 33rd annual IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s.“Last year was the first year I went and I crewed for Lance and Jason. I was really impressed with the number of people that were there and all the racing,” Toth said. “We talked about it on the way home and I decided I would bring my car this year.The Holtville, Calif., driver has run a limited schedule this season, with three feature wins in 11 starts at home track Cocopah Speedway in Yuma, Ariz. He’s the point leader and eligible to qualify for the BSB Manufacturing Race of Champions.“When we first started this class at Cocopah, we were getting eight or nine cars. Now it’s closer to 20,” said Toth. “I feel good about going to Boone. I would be happy to make the qualifier either night. To make the Saturday night main event would be the ultimate goal.”Toth ran a pure stock and then a Modified before expense in general and two blown engines the same weekend prompted him to convert the car to a Northern SportMod.He also won three features last season and ended with a couple satisfactory showings in his two Duel In The Desert qualifiers at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.“I really enjoy the open wheel classes. The SportMods are fun to drive and they’re economical,” Toth said. “Around here, we’ve got a bunch of cars that can run up front. They’re competitive and that’s what I enjoy most about this class.”He’ll enjoy racing more often and against more cars in upcoming seasons, as more Arizona tracks phase out similar classes and sanction the IMCA division.Toth’s primary sponsors are MRT Race Cars and SBS Suspension, both of Imperial; CT Floor Covering of Holtville; Axis Metal Fabrication of El Centro; the Radco Company of Brawley; and Wells Design of Ogalla, Neb.last_img read more

The White Sox believe they are poised for a turnaround after seven straight losing seasons. But losing Kopech for the season and Moncada for at least a little while are big blows.Both players had been absent since the White Sox resumed workouts last week for the first time since Major League Baseball shut down camps in March.The team had said Kopech was dealing with a personal issue.“We recognize that reaching this decision is incredibly difficult for any competitive athlete, and our organization is understanding and supportive,” general manager Rick Hahn said in a statement. “We will work with Michael to assure his development continues throughout 2020, and we look forward to welcoming him back into our clubhouse for the 2021 season.”The 24-year-old right-hander is coming back from Tommy John surgery in September 2018.

The players were all tested before the workout began, the school says. It adds that none of the players that tested positive have required hospitalization.The tests were administered by UVA athletics sports medicine.The players with positive test results will self-isolate for 10 days, or until they have been fever-free for at least three days, whichever is longer. They also will undergo cardiac screening before they are permitted to join daily sports functions.The school did not indicate how many others were determined through contact tracing to have come into close contact with the players infected. It also did not indicate whether any coaches or other football staff have tested positive for the novel coronavirus. ___Atlantic Coast Conference commissioner John Swofford says the league expects to make its decision on fall sports in “late July.”The league put out Swofford’s statement Friday afternoon, saying the league has prepared “numerous scenarios” for fall competition over the last few months. The decision would come from the league’s board of directors.Earlier this week, the ACC delayed the start of fall competition until at least Sept. 1. That move impacts non-revenue programs like soccer, volleyball, field hockey and cross country, but not football for now. The first football game involving a league team is North Carolina State’s trip to Louisville on Sept. 2.___ All those found to have come into contact with the infected players will be asked to self-quarantine for at least 14 days and are unable to participate in daily sports functions in that time.___San Francisco Giants star catcher Buster Posey is the latest big-name player to skip this season because of concerns over the coronavirus pandemic.Posey announced his decision on Friday.

Wenger left ‘stunned’ by Pulis’ Crystal Palace departure

first_img1 Kitson says Tony Pulis despised Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger Arsene Wenger has said he was “complete surprised” when he heard of Tony Pulis’ departure as Crystal Palace boss just days ahead of the opening day of the Premier League season.The Eagles’ plans for the new campaign, which starts at Arsenal in Saturday’s late kick-off, have been thrown into disarray after Pulis left the Selhurst Park club late on Thursday.The Welshman was named the top flight’s manager of the year last term, having guided the Eagles from the bottom of the table to relegation survival following his appointment last November.And following Palace’s 11th-place finish, Wenger revealed there had been no indications of any issues when he caught up with Pulis at a pre-season Premier League managers’ meeting at the start of the week.“It was a complete surprise to me and what kind of consequence that will have on Crystal Palace, I don’t know,” said Wenger, who is the longest serving manager in the top flight.“The only thing I can say is that he’s done a remarkable job last season and he made a miracle. I don’t really know why he left, but it took me by surprise.“I have never seen that [a manager leave so close to start of season] before, so you can always be surprised.“I was at a managers’ meeting on Monday with Tony Pulis and nothing indicated that he would not be here [on Saturday afternoon].”Wenger added: “Maybe Tony Pulis was the manager of the season last year because he took the maximum out of his team during the period he was there – that is the real job of the manager.”last_img read more

Tassel ears showing up in fields

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest While scouting fields this time of year it is common to find a few strange looking ears. Corn is a monecious plant, which means it has separate male (the tassel) and female (the ear) flowers. In some cases, both male and female structures form as a combination in the same plant structure.“Tassel-ears” often form on the tillers or “suckers” of a corn plant. Corn experts and agronomists believe that tassel ears are the result of some kind of environmental occurrence, however, the exact event that causes their development is unknown. The number of kernels that form on the tassel ear are limited. Without a husk to protect them, these kernels are exposed to environmental conditions and are usually damaged by the time harvest occurs.According to Bob Nielsen from Purdue University, “The male and female reproductive organs of a corn plant are contained in physically separate unisexual flowers (a flowering habit called “monoecious” for you trivia fans.) The tassel represents the male flower on a corn plant, while the ear shoots represent the female flowers. Interestingly, both reproductive structures initiate as perfect (bisexual) flowers, containing both male and female reproductive structures. During the normal course of development, the female components (gynoecia) of the tassel and the male components (stamens) of the ear shoots abort, resulting in the unisexual flowers we come to expect.“Once in a while, the normal development of the tassel alters such that it becomes partly or mostly female reproductive structures, often resulting in actual kernel development. The physiological basis for the survival of the female floral parts on the tassel is likely hormonally-driven, but the environmental “trigger” that alters the hormonal balance is not known.“A “tassel-ear” is an odd-looking affair and is found most commonly on tillers or “suckers” of a corn plant along the edges of a field or in otherwise thinly populated areas of a field. It is very uncommon to find tassel-ears that develop on the main stalk of a corn plant.”last_img read more

Jennifer Lopez won’t perform in Brazil World Cup opener

first_imgThe officials said Jennifer Lopez cannot perform at Thursday’s event as earlier plannedJennifer Lopez won’t perform the World Cup’s official song alongside fellow artists Pitbull and Claudia Leitte during the tournament’s opening ceremony in Brazil, FIFA officials said Sunday.Soccer’s governing body said Lopez cannot perform at Thursday’s event as earlier planned because of unspecified “production issues.”The singer’s representatives didn’t explain the reason why Lopez wouldn’t be joining the act. They only confirmed the announcement in an emailed response, saying “regretfully Jennifer Lopez will not be attending this year’s World Cup opening ceremonies.”FIFA said in a news release that Cuban-American rapper Pitbull and Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte will sing the official tune “We Are One” before Brazil takes on Croatia at Thursday’s opening game in Sao Paulo.The song has let down many Brazilians who complain that it sounds too generic for the nation’s Bossa Nova-crazed audiences and that it features foreign musicians singing mostly in English and Spanish. Leitte sings only a few seconds at the end of the song in her native Portuguese.last_img read more
