In our review, we went in-depth into each track on the album, capturing The Beautiful Game and all of its quirks within the Vulfpeck catalog. At the heart of it all is an insatiable groove, powered by Jack Stratton, Theo Katzman, Joe Dart and Woody Goss.Today, the band has shared their brand new music video for the track “Daddy, He Got A Tesla.” With more of a space-funk Herbie Hancock vibe to it, “Daddy, He Got A Tesla” is a bit of a departure from Vulfpeck’s sound, but they master it all the same. The song includes collaborators Joey Dosik, Pegasus Warning and Jamire Williams, all adding their soulful sounds and musicianship to the tune.Check out the band’s new video, which premiered just now on Facebook, below.last_img read more

Power outage

first_imgThe Power lost to the previously winless Tulsa Talons 45-22. Maybe Pittsburgh was under the incorrect assumption that Tulsa had to still be licking their wounds after a 69-20 drubbing at the hands of the Arizona Rattlers. Instead it appeared that Tulsa was licking their chops at the prospect of facing the “new kids” on the block. This game was a “turnover fest” for Pittsburgh. The Power ended the game with five turnovers. In the land of midget or any other football league, amateur or professional, it is very difficult to win if your team commits five turnovers. Power Head Coach Chris Siegfried put it this way, “There’s not many teams you can turn the ball over to five times and win in this league. Well coach I am in complete agreement with you. Although Morelli threw his first AFL touchdown pass, he still appeared to be a bit “skittish” in the pocket. Morelli does not seem to be the short or long term answer for the Power at QB. The “bye” week for the Power will not be a time to relax. They have to get their offense at least semi-healthy until starting quarterback Bernard Morris is healthy because as we all should know at least by now; in the NFL defense wins championships, in the AFL offense will more than likely win the Holy Grail.Lip serviceThere was a schoolmate who I despised. He really got on my last nerve. I was a tad bit apprehensive about fighting this boy. Don’t ask me why, I had never seen him fight but this was just a vibe that I had. However, I mustered up enough nerve to challenge this “cat” and I lost the fight. A few months later, we rumbled again and I lost that contest as well. I am not a dodo bird. There was not going to be a third fight because I was not going to lose three successive battles to him or any other person.Take the Pitt men’s’ basketball team led by Head Coach Jamie Dixon. For the second year in a row, Dixon’s group of six foot plus couch potatoes were getting their snacks ready in preparation to view the NCAA championship game between Butler and the University of Connecticut. Some people are again describing Butler’s ascension as a storybook scenario. Last year Butler may have composed a “storybook” but this year the small school has published a “textbook.” Butler is writing a new manual; the title is “How to beat the Big Boys.” How could Butler’s head Coach Brad Stevens not have won coach of the year?Dixon may have won the coach of the year award but Stevens is winning the big games. See, the coach of the year award has been in a few glaring cases awarded as a result of the politics of who you know as opposed to what is actually happening on the court. Butler is 10-1 in their last 11 NCAA tournament appearances. Butler does not mind getting grimy and sweaty doing all of the little things to make life a bed of roses for themselves a bed of nails for their opponents. Hey get this; Butler has an approximate student population of less than 4437 students. The University of Pittsburgh on the other hand has over 27,000 students.The Pitt “ZOO” student body fan club has approximately 1400 members. That number is just 79 students shy of equaling one-third of the total student population of Butler.How can such a small school win the big games? Well in my opinion, humility, tenacity and great coaching. Your squad has to be totally and genuinely humble.Not the artificial humility displayed on the press conference podium after another predictable loss but a strong and truly gracious humility. Secondly, when no one expects your team to do much of anything, then your players have to have and display the tenacity of a school of piranhas.The game plan must be just as tenacious and fearless as the players on the court. A game plan cannot be tailored on how to badger and work certain officials. Trying to manipulate the psyches of certain officials so that calls will go your way takes the focus away from you strategizing so that the game will go your way. We should be so lucky to have the Butler “ambiance” and attitude at Pitt.(Aubrey Bruce can be reached at: [email protected] or 412-583-6741.) Hey, just when I was flexing my muscles when it came to the Pittsburgh Power, reality stepped in and won over imagination. The reality is that this is a “rookie” franchise with a lot of growing to do. First of all let’s discuss the position of quarterback. The loss of the mobility and ability of starting QB Bernard Morris who is currently on injured reserve was evident as 2nd team QB Kevin McCabe struggled mightily and was eventually yanked for 3rd stringer Anthony Morelli, the former Penn State star who for all intents and purposes was even worse. McCabe, who is known for his accurate passing but not his mobility, did not display the precision that is normally his calling card.last_img read more

IPL dugout Virat Kohlis big statement on winning IPL CSK wins heart

first_imgThere is a lot of talk around Virat Kohli, around RCB, around the plethora of stars in their team, around their title jinx. The captain himself has conceded that there is frustration at not winning the title, he has said that his side needed to make smarter decisions when up against pressure scenarios, but at the same time, he has made it sure to put it out there that any judgements about his career based on an IPL silverware will never bother him.”I am doing what I am supposed to do. I don’t care whether I am going to be judged on this [not winning IPL] or not. There is no real, sort of, parameters you set. I try to perform wherever I can. I try to win all the possible titles, but sometimes it just doesn’t happen. We have to be practical about why we haven’t won one. That boils down to bad decision-making in pressure situations,” Kohli said on the eve of the first encounter with CSK.CSK, KXIP with a noble gesture MS Dhoni and CSK with a noble gestureVipin Pawar/IPL/SPORTZPICSChennai Super Kings, in a noble gesture, have announced that they will donate the ticket proceeds of their IPL 2019 opening match to the families of those killed in the Pulwama terror attack in February.

CCI struggles to defend itself against Compats rap

first_imgWith Compat coming down heavily on some Competition Commission members for passing an order without being present for hearings, CCI chief Ashok Chawla on Friday said such instances do not result in “great miscarriage of justice”.The comments came against the backdrop of Competition Appellate Tribunal recently saying that two Commission members signing an order without being present for hearing amounts to “flagrant violation of the basics of natural justice”.  “The members look at written submissions which are equally important in addition to the oral submissions. We don’t think there is any great miscarriage of justice but we respect the judgement and we will try to adhere to it more strictly in the future,” Chawla, who is the Chairman of Competition Commission of India (CCI), told reporters here. Also Read – I-T issues 17-point checklist to trace unaccounted DeMO cashHe noted that Compat’s remarks are based on a particular hearing where some CCI members were not present. “But it is also a fact that hearings go over a long period of time. They are not essentially related to one particular day, it is possible that on some day some member may not be present,” Chawla said. Compat had made the observation while passing an order on an appeal filed by All India Organisation of Chemists and Druggists against a CCI ruling. Also Read – Lanka launches ambitious tourism programme to woo Indian tourists“It deserves to be mentioned that two of the five members who signed the impugned order had joined the Commission after more than 1-1/2 months of the date of hearing. “Therefore, the only possible inference which can be drawn is that they had mechanically signed the order and such an order cannot but be treated as vitiated due to flagrant violation of the basics of natural justice,” Compat had said in its order in April. Meanwhile, on the net neutrality issue, Chawla said it is a policy issue which the telecom regulator is looking into. About alleged cartelisation by airlines in fixing airfares, Chawla said CCI has again started investigating the matter after receiving some fresh complaints. In previous investigations, the regulator had not found anything adverse, he added. Approves acquisition of Birla Textile Mills The Competition Commission has approved the Rs 233-crore deal for the acquisition of Birla Textile Mills (BTM) by Sutlej Textiles and Industries. “The Competition Commission of India (CCI) has communicated to us their approval,” Sutlej Textiles and Industries said in a filing to the BSE. Birla Textile Mills is the textile division of Chambal Fertilisers and Chemicals, located at Baddi, Himachal Pradesh. “The consideration for purchase of BTM from Chambal works out be Rs 232.63 crore (including net current assets) subject to closing and other adjustments, if any,” Sutlej Textiles and Industries had earlier said.last_img read more

Be calm before surgery for better outcome

first_imgIf you are ill and scheduled for a medical procedure, keep calm as feeling high levels of distress, fear and hostility prior to undergoing a surgery like angioplasty may lead to poor outcome, said a study.“I was surprised by this result. Prior to this study, I did not believe patient mood could have an effect on outcome,” said study author Nadja Kadom, acting associate professor of radiology at Emory University School of Medicine.The team analysed the results of 230 patients, including 120 women and 110 men (mean age 55 years) who underwent interventional radiology procedures including vascular and kidney interventions. Upon arriving for their procedure, patients were asked to complete a questionnaire called the Positive Affect Negative Affect Schedule (PANAS) to assess their mood. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Using a five-point rating scale, the patients reported to what extent they felt strong, alert, determined and other positive feeling states and to what degree they were experiencing negative feelings, such as guilt, nervousness or irritability. Dr Kadom and fellow researchers grouped the patients based on high and low scores for positive affect and high and low scores for negative affect.Those groups were then correlated with the occurrence of adverse events during the procedures, such as a prolonged lack of oxygen, low or high blood pressure, post-operative bleeding or an abnormally slow heart rate. The data revealed that patients with a high negative affect experienced significantly more adverse events than patients with low negative affect. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixOf the 104 patients with high negative affect, 23 (22 per cent) had an adverse event, compared to 15 (12 per cent) of the 126 patients with low negative affect.“Our study shows that mood matters. You don’t need to have a chipper, cheery attitude prior to your procedure. You just have to overcome negative emotions and get to a neutral level,” noted Dr Elvira V Lang, interventional radiologist in Boston.The health care teams should be trained in resilience and techniques to create their own positive emotional states, as well as coping strategies to help patients modify negative emotions and reframe their mindset prior to undergoing a procedure, the authors noted.last_img read more
