It’s Wednesday and the weekend is fast approaching, so that means there are some fantastic live shows to be seen all over the Southeast. The only questions I have are (a) How long does it take to get to each of these? And (b) Who is watching my kids?Here’s a Thursday through Sunday slate of shows from around the region that you should consider taking in if you find yourself in any one of these locales.Thursday, March 20th – Athens, Georgia/St. Paul & The Broken Bones.I’ve never been to the recently refurbished – but still iconic – Georgia Theater, but I can’t imagine a better way to complete my first visit than by dropping by to catch St. Paul & The Broken Bones, the vintage soul quintet out of Birmingham, Alabama. These guys are touring hard following the release of their debut record, Half The City, and you should catch them when you can. For more info, check out the Georgia Theater’s website at http://www.georgiatheatre.com/.Friday, March 21st – Johnson City, Tennessee/The Stray BirdsThis is a show I could actually make, as The Down Home – long one of East Tennessee’s premiere listening rooms – is just an hour or so down the road from my house. I discovered The Stray Birds when I visited the IBMA conference back in the fall and had the pleasure of meeting Oliver Craven, one of the members of the band. He handed me one of the band’s discs, which I poured over on the drive home the next day. Seeing them at The Down Home would be a nifty way to wrap up the week. For info, check out http://downhome.com/.Saturday, March 22nd – Raleigh, North Carolina/Jonathan Scales FourchestraFive bucks? Just five bucks to see the jazzy steel pan mastery of Jonathan Scales and his mates in the Fourchestra? This is too good to be true. A few years back, I named Character Farm & Other Short Stories my favorite record of 2011. Order your tickets online – or pay a couple more at the door – and catch JS4 at The Pour House, one of my favorite beer halls and music rooms in Raleigh, and you can see why. More information can be found at http://www.thepourhousemusichall.com.Sunday, March 23rd – Washington, D.C./Drive-By TruckersI’d like to tell you to make your way over to the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, to catch the first of a two night run by the Drive-By Truckers, but I’d be wasting your time. The show is already sold out. However, if you want to catch a rock show on a Sunday night, this is your chance. Tickets are still available for the Truckers’ second night at the 9:30, where you will surely hear some tunes off the band’s new record, English Oceans. Grab your tickets before they are gone at http://www.930.com.Of course, this is just a whiff of all the tasty shows taking place this weekend. If you can’t make one of these, find another one. Go listen to some live music. It’ll do you right. read more
Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers“Um, I agree with LeBron,” he said, with a laugh.Neither Walton nor James was in much of a reflective mood when it came to last season, which resulted in the overhaul of the Lakers’ roster and the dismissal of Walton. But both tried to make the best of what was often an awkward partnership, with no shortage of tension fueled by losing games, injuries and trade rumors.At one point, when a reporter asked what the differences were between the current, Frank Vogel-led coaching staff and Walton’s, James frowned: “I feel like that’s kind of a trick question.”Walton declined to talk much about his three-year tenure in Los Angeles, saying at his pregame availability that he was focused on trying to coach his Kings team to win. Sacramento got out to a disappointing 0-5 start before going 4-1 in its next stretch leading into Friday’s game.When asked what he learned from his Lakers days, Walton demurred. Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs LOS ANGELES — Perhaps the greatest public vote of confidence LeBron James ever gave Luke Walton came on Friday morning, long after Walton’s last day as his coach.James, reflecting on the 37-45 record last season that bumped him from the playoffs for the first time since 2005, didn’t lay it at Walton’s feet.“We were just behind the eight ball,” James said. “But throughout it all, we just tried to remain positive, even throughout with the young guys, with the older guys and whatever the case may be. So, I think he did as great of a job as you could do under the circumstances.”Hours before tip-off, as Walton was preparing his Sacramento Kings to take on the Lakers, he smiled when James’ words were repeated back to him. Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed “We can go into that forever,” he said. “I’ve learned from my coaching there, and I try to use that to be a better coach now. But right now it is all on this game tonight and the continued progress of trying to build off the little bit of success that we’ve had recently.”Related Articles Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions Walton did allow that coming back to Staples Center, where he both played and coached, was “special” for him. And while he didn’t win a lot of games with a 98-148 record, he left with a lot of relationships in L.A.Kyle Kuzma was coming out of the Lakers’ locker room to warm up as Walton walked through the back tunnel on Friday, and stopped to embrace his former coach. Walton said he still has fondness for the players he led during his tenure, even though many of them no longer play for the Lakers, either.“I like watching those other guys play down in New Orleans,” he said. “Part of coaching is you build relationships with other players. And I enjoy watching the guys that are still here.”Walton also had some praise for James, who is leading the NBA in assists during the team’s hot start.“He’s LeBron, he’s one of the greatest players of all time, if not the greatest,” he said. “So I’m sure last year getting hurt, not making the playoffs, I mean, he’s going right now. And this team kind of follows that lead. They’re playing incredibly well, their defense and offense starts with him. He looks really good.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error read more
Football is returning but it already looks very different because of the coronavirus pandemic. The impact on how clubs do transfer business will be considerable tooParis, France | AFP | Around Europe, football is waking up from the coronavirus shutdown, but it is different to before for players and supporters and it is changing behind the scenes too.While the German Bundesliga returns in stadiums devoid of fans, the sport is preparing for an economic crisis which will impact all levels of the game.That will be particularly visible in the transfer market, where it has become the norm to see leading clubs splash out 100 million-euro fees.Damien Comolli has observed events from afar having left his role at Turkish club Fenerbahce in January.The ex-Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur sporting director told AFP he foresees fees dropping by “between 30 and 50 percent compared to the usual prices, and a reduction of 70-75 percent in terms of activity.”In particular, the loss to clubs from matchday revenue as a result of games being played behind closed doors will impact budgets.When it comes to signing players, those in charge of recruitment at clubs have also simply not been able to do their jobs.– Time to take stock –“The biggest part of my job is following up on targets for the next transfer windows,” says Martyn Glover, head of scouting and recruitment at English Premier League side Southampton.Scouts usually spend much of their time clocking up road and air miles to watch prospective signings in action.“I would expect to be abroad every week at some point,” says Glover, who previously worked at Everton.“I might fly to Paris to watch PSG and then the next day to Germany to watch somebody else. My week would probably be three or four live games of football.”Robert McKenzie has a similar a role at Belgian second-tier outfit Leuven, who in 2017 were taken over by King Power, the Thai owners of Leicester City.Usually he would be on the road watching up to 20 games a month, eyeing up targets.“The current situation obviously has significant implications for what has historically been the most important part of the process: the assessment of players in live games,” he tells AFP. “I do often think to myself when will be the next time I’m actually sat in a football stadium watching a game? Who knows!”However, he acknowledges that the shutdown has afforded him the luxury of time to take stock and assess options.In contrast, Newcastle United made headlines when their head of recruitment, Steve Nickson, was placed on furlough along with the whole scouting department, stopping a crucial section of the club from functioning.In any case, how can a Premier League club plan for the summer window without knowing if they will still be a top-flight club next season, or if this season will restart, with all the financial consequences?“There are too many imponderables,” says Glover.“We are not a club who might spend 80 million on a player anyway.“I am sure there will be some opportunities that present themselves by the nature of what has happened, both at home and abroad, but the hardest part is the finances.”– A different approach –Glover admits the way his job is done could change forever. Comolli helped introduce data use and analytics into English football and believes that approach will become more widespread.“Maybe more and more clubs will use data and statistics instead of live scouting and maybe clubs will also investigate more the player himself, their families, the way they live.“If I had one chance to go and watch a player live or one chance to meet him and his family, I would take the opportunity to go and meet him.”He believes those clubs who already placed the emphasis on video scouting and data can emerge from the crisis with their teams unscathed.Even clubs lower down may emerge stronger. That includes Leuven, although they must await the outcome of a play-off in August to see which division they will be in next season.“I think there may be opportunities that arise for us as a club as a result of the current situation which were previously thought not possible,” insists McKenzie.Share on: WhatsApp read more

LacklustreCrystal BayOn Wednesday, 16th November the Pattaya Golf Society was represented by a large group of golfers at Crystal Bay, eager to ply a stableford competition over the B and C nines. The day was warm and humid, clouds were high and a fresh breeze kept golfers comfortable throughout and the course was in good condition except for some patchy greens on the C nine.Entertaining three guests, thus potential new members, the PGS golfers played in one flight and results were only average to say the least. Jesper Hansen and Mike Davies both collected 32 points to share third place with Irish golfer Larry Slattery going one better with 33 points. Thirty-four points was the best score and amazingly it was the worst winning score at the course since PGS records began more than a dozen years ago, the average win being net 68 “point something”.The only ‘2’ of the day was recorded by Svend Hommel on C7. More effort needed lads!Lady’s dayat Mountain ShadowThe PGS took a large field of eager golfers to Mountain Shadow on Friday, 18th November to play a stableford event on the course which was in excellent condition with more fairway run than many in the area currently. The field was divided into two flights with the division coming at fifteen and under. As usual the course proved to be a tough challenge to all meaning accuracy off the tee and assured putting were the orders for the day.The top flight saw Karl Flood sign off his Friday golf with 32 points giving him third place, and Tony Browne’s confident 34 points gave him second place. The winner with the best gross of the day also was Peter Wilson, with 35 points.In the second flight Martin Hoblyn stuck to his task well to record a third placed 29 points but John O’Sullivan went well better with 35 points giving him his best result, runner-up, in a while. The winner was the lady golfer, New Satita, riding the roller coaster of a novice handicap with forty excellent points.The ‘2’s pot was shared by Peter Wilson and the returning Japanese golfer Masa Takano, both in the top flight.The presentation back at the Links Bar in Soi Buakhao saw Wayne Peppernell accept the non-winners’ beer, especially refreshing for the other golfers after Wayne’s fall from grace since his fine 42 points on Monday! IPGC Pattaya Golf SocietyThe Pattaya Golf Society took five groups to Pattana on Monday, 14th November to play a stableford competition on the B and C nines from the yellow tees, as usual the course was in excellent condition and with high scattered clouds the day was set fair to be an enjoyable one.Pattana Golf Resort.The podium saw two golfers sharing runner-up place with Jacob Cummings and Peter Wilson both recording 37 points and an outstanding round of golf by Aussie Wayne Peppernell took the victory with 42 points, just one short of the PGS winning record score at the course, 43 points. Phew! Wayne’s turbo charged efforts certainly blew all traces of a credible opposition on the day. He also took a share of the ‘2’s pot with his effort on C7 matching that of Tony Browne on C2.The non-winners’ beer was won by Huw Phillips and the group was unanimous in its thanks to Mike Firkin for his stewardship of the day as a replacement for an exhausted Mr Len, resting after the previous day’s efforts at a steamy hot Burapha. read more
PSC Golf from The Outback Golf BarSaturday, Feb. 6, Silky Oak – StablefordOur Saturday golf had been up and down in numbers, but this Saturday we had a large turnout of 22 players at Silky Oak. This included a tour group of 8 players which played in their own competition, so with 14 of us playing in the “Pot & Skins” it was an ideal number for this format of competition. A lot of people don’t know how a pot and skins format works, so let me briefly explain. Everyone plays the normal stableford competition from their normal handicap, but we only pay out prize money for the overall winner. All the other proceeds count towards a hole by hole pot, for example 50 baht or 100 baht per hole (skin). Whoever has the skill to get the lowest net score on each hole wins the pot for that hole, and if multiple players have the same lowest net score, that pot is carried forward to the next hole. 3/4 hcp is used in the calculation of the players handicap to determine which hole indexes he/she gets shots on.Friday winners Greg Hill and Barry Mcintosh. Still seems complicated? The computer works it all out and all that I need to do is enter the scores as we normally do for all competitions. I simply print out a report which shows all players net scores and who had the lowest score for each hole, and make a few sum additions.The fun thing about this format is that you can have a terrible round, but on a certain hole you score that elusive birdie and you may end up with a good number of skins. You are therefore never out of the game in this format, no matter how bad your day is going.On the other side of the spectrum, a player doing well like Per Loevgren, scored 37 points twice in 2 weeks, and never got a skin for all his efforts as he didn’t get a good enough net score on any hole to win the hole outright!The skins pot stay in the bar, and if you’re not there after the game to collect your winnings, the players that remain share that on the drinks bill. Another example of why this is a really social and fun day designed for those guys that want a social game and a laugh with the boys, rather than a regular competition. Join us and try out this fun format – every Saturday at Silky Oaks.Monday, Feb. 8, Burapha C & D – Stableford1st John Cunningham (7) 35pts2nd John Fitzgerald (20) 33pts3rd Mike Missler (11) 33pts4th Peter Nixon (11) 31pts5th John O’ Keefe (17) 31ptsAnother good number of new faces joined us today. Welcome back to Geoff Harrison, Tony Gilchrist and Gary March. Today’s field was a little smaller than in the previous weeks and the going was tough with difficult pin positions and fast greens on the C&D course. Scoring wasn’t high, even with the generous course and slope ratings giving an extra shot to some players, and no one scored better than handicap.In fifth place was John O’Keefe on 31 points and Peter Nixon took fourth on the same score. Mike Missler, continuing his improvement, placed third with 33 and was edged out by John Fitzgerald on count back. The winner this week was John Cunningham, playing by far the best with a great 80 gross and 35 points.Friday, Feb. 12, Green Valley – StablefordDiv A: [0-12]1st Michel Deletraz (9) 35pts2nd KB Lee (7) 34pts3rd Stephen Mann (9) 34ptsDiv B: [13-17]1st Greg Hill (17) 35pts2nd Jean Maffray (13) 31pts3rd John Stafford (16) 31ptsDiv C: [18 up]1st Barry McIntosh (22) 31pts2nd Stephen Blazsanyik (18) 30pts3rd Bob Lindborg (22) 28ptsWith our field exceeding 40 players and playing in three divisions it was a busy start to the day with our staff scrambling to get our Outback breakfasts prepared for the early morning revellers. Even though the groups are getting bigger all the time we had no difficulty getting everyone signed up and with everyone receiving their printed scorecards, as is the norm now at the Outback, we had a good start a little ahead of schedule.The greens setup was very tough with difficult pin positions and fast surfaces, something very refreshing and unusual for Green Valley, and even though scoring wasn’t that high our groups thoroughly enjoyed this different look here. The result however was a highest score of 35 points on the day, and with a relatively large field, the smiles were big for Greg Hill and Mike Missler who had the only 2’s on the day.Starting off with the C division, with handicaps 18 and up, Bob Lindborg scored 28 points to finish third, Waldo was two better in second and Barry Mcintosh, to his surprise, clinched first prize with just 31 points.In the B division, with handicaps 13-17, John Stafford scored 31 points to take third, beaten by JP Maffray on count back. Greg Hill, visiting us from Hua Hin, finished as the winner with 35 points.In the A division, Stephen Mann placed third with 34 points, edged out of second on count back by KB Lee, and in top spot was Michel Deletraz with 35 points. read more

Powered by Firework Following the footsteps of Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli, who’s immensely popular beyond his sport worldwide because of his fitness and athleticism, football team captain Sunil Chhetri has turned vegan.Advertisement “I have become vegan — I don’t take dairy or meat. It has helped me a lot in terms of recovery and digestion,” the Indian who has scored a record 72 international goals told AIFF in an interview.Advertisement “When I was in Kansas in the US, there was a slight change (in diet) but as I said as I was young, I didn’t go deep into it. I followed it but not religiously. Then when I went to Sporting Lisbon, I saw that it’s common in Europe about what they eat. It was there that I became stricter,” he recalled.“I have indulged (in sweets) only on two momentous occasions — the first time I gave in was after Bengaluru FC won the Indian Super League and the next time I had a bite was after we drew our away match with Qatar,” he said.Advertisement Although it is very tricky to imagine oneself undergoing such strict transitions in diet , Chhetri takes us through how he operates :“You need to understand what works best for your own body. In fact, there have been occasions when people put slices of cake in my mouth. But I never gulped (smiles),” he said.“She (Sonam) is not a vegan, and every now and then, she enjoys her prawns, and fish curries too. I am so much in peace that I did get married to her. The support from home has stayed the bedrock.”“When I was 25 and I was told to eat 6 pieces of potato every day, someday it would be 8, someday it would be 10. Not that it’s going to make a big difference. But now when I am told by my nutritionist that you get to eat 6 pieces a day, it’s 6. Done!,” he said.“These things really help you when you grow older because by now you have understood what works for you, and it’s easier to be more disciplined. That is where probably when people who are 30 plus do well.”Chhetri said his teammates have also become more aware of the diet now. “The most significant change I have witnessed in the national team is the diet. The current crop of boys knows what to eat, how much to eat, and when to eat,” he said ahead of their Tuesday’s group E World Cup qualifier against Bangladesh.“They understand what is beneficial for them, and most importantly they stick to it. And it doesn’t end with the national team. It is percolating down to the Clubs, and age group players as well,” he concluded. Advertisement read more
