Watch Southern Avenue Bring Their Bluesy Soul To Purple Hatters Ball [Videos]

by ,

first_imgSouthern Avenue brought their trademarked blend of Memphis rock soul and funk to the 11th edition of the Purple Hatters Ball for a stellar set that had the Spirit Of Suwannee Music Park shimmying and swaying to their heartfelt sound. The band mixed originals new and old with a pair of impressive classic covers from The Beatles and Bill Withers for a jamming concoction that surely won them hundreds of new fans while delighting their faithful. Though some onlookers wondered how Southern Avenue was able to brave the heat and give such a stellar performance, a simple glance at their history will show that they are a band that isn’t going to let anything stop them from achieving their musical destiny.Founded by guitarist Ori Naftaly who emigrated from Israel in 2013 to follow his lifelong dream of becoming a bluesman, the band is a rollicking mix of sounds and cultures. Sisters Tierinii and Tikyra Jackson grew up playing in the churches and their sweet sounds reflect that upbringing. Vocalist Tierinii works the crowd like a preacher trying to save the sinners while Tikyra brings a snappy heart to the drum kit that keeps the beat alive and well. Keyboardist Jeremy Powell manages to find the perfect balance between the spiritual and rock sound while never overpowering the overall groove. Bassist Gage Markey helps keep the pocket alive so that Naftaly can unleash the seemingly infinite amount of killer blues licks he has pent up in his heart of heart. The love these five players share for the music and each other is palpable, and was perfectly fitting for the Purple Hatters Ball. Even having all their instruments stolen just a few weeks ago hasn’t slowed Southern Avenue down, perfectly illustrating their drive to share the sounds that clearly permeate their hearts and souls.The festival was founded to keep the memory of a fallen friend to the Florida music scene, Rachel Morningstar Hoffman, alive and well. Though the story of her death is a true tragedy, the way the community has rallied behind the efforts to ensure her fate never befalls another is one of the more moving stories in the festival world. Check out these exclusive clips from yesterday’s set, including a trio of original and smoking hot covers, brought to you by our own Rex-A-Vision. Oh, and don’t miss these fine folks if they come your way on tour…you won’t regret it!Southern Avenue – “Don’t Give Up” – 6/1/18Southern Avenue – “Come Together” – 6/1/18Southern Avenue – “Slipped, Tripped and Fell In Love-Rock Steady” – 6/1/18Southern Avenue – “Use Me” – 6/1/18last_img read more

Bishop celebrates Red Mass for lawmakers

by ,
first_imgYesterday was a red-letter day, as members of the University community, particularly, the law school community, celebrated the traditional Red Mass in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart. Bishop Kevin Rhoades of the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend presided over this year’s iteration of the annual Red Mass. He said the Mass is a long-standing Church tradition that invokes the aid of the Holy Spirit for people in law-related vocations. “The Red Mass is a tradition that goes back to the Middle Ages, the 13th century,” Rhoades said. “It is called ‘red’ because the priest or bishop wears red vestments, red being the color of the Holy Spirit. The purpose is asking God’s blessing and guidance on those in the legal profession.” Rhoades said each year, the Red Mass and his homily are dedicated to a specific topic relevant for Catholics in the legal profession and civic office. “Last year I talked about the injustice of the [Health and Human Services] mandate and religious freedom,” he said. “This year, the topic is the meaning of freedom and what a culture of freedom is. True freedom is rooted in moral truth.” The Red Mass is celebrated worldwide each October, Rhoades said. He said he presides over two Red Masses each year, one in Fort Wayne and one in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart. This year’s Mass was his fourth at Notre Dame. Red Masses often attract prominent members of the legal profession and politicians, Rhoades said. Me`mbers of the United States Supreme Court attended the Red Mass held in Washington, D.C., this past week, and the governor of Pennsylvania used to attend the Red Masses over which Rhoades presided when he was Bishop of Harrisburg, Pa., from 2004 to 2009. Rhoades said various judges, lawyers and civic officials from the area joined professors, law students and undergraduate students in the Basilica for yesterday’s Red Mass.  His homily focused on current world issues relevant to the topic, as well as the teachings of St. Thomas More, patron saint of lawyers and statesmen, and the “rich teaching of soon-to-be St. John Paul II.” More serves as a powerful example of a faithful lawyer whose dedication to truth serves as an example for Catholics in the legal profession, Rhoades said. More died defending the freedom Rhoades spoke of in his homily. “More’s faithfulness to the truth led to his being beheaded,” Rhoades said. “He was really a martyr of freedom and conscience.” Rhoades said he referenced the writings of Blessed John Paul II in his homily because the late pope had a great deal to say about freedom and truth. “He wrote on this theme quite a bit, and I have reflected often on his teachings,” Rhoades said. “He taught that freedom can lead to a lot of trouble if not rooted in moral truth.” Rhoades said he values the Mass as a chance to meet, advise and pray for the Notre Dame Law community. “[The Red Mass] gives me an opportunity to meet law students and law professors, and to encourage them in living their faith in their profession,” he said. “There are excellent scholars here who help the Church, so it’s good to come here and pray for them.” Notre Dame’s Red Mass has always been sponsored by the Law School, but last year the political science department joined in, and this year the constitutional studies minor has followed suit, Rhoades said.  It’s been a positive development in the last year,” he said. In his homily, Rhoades said he believes the current and future leaders of law and civil service in attendance can work to ensure moral truth is part of a shared notion of freedom in the United States. “You can help to rebuild the moral foundations of a genuine culture of freedom,” he said. “I believe the future of our nation depends on a culture that adheres to the moral truths and values without which our democracy is imperiled.” Contact Christian Myers at [email protected]last_img

Pecan Course

by ,

first_imgUniversity of Georgia Cooperative Extension will host the Beginners Pecan Production Course on Tuesday, April 18, at the UGA Tifton Campus Conference Center.Those interested can preregister for the event by calling Debbie Rutland at (229) 386-3424. Before the day of the event, the cost to attend is $10. Registration the day of the event is $15. The program begins a 9 a.m. and will continue all day. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.Those interested can also register at http://bit.ly/2nKhLV9. Preregistration is recommended because a crowd of 300 – the maximum capacity – is expected to be in attendance.Primarily geared toward new growers, the course will cover topics like costs of production, fertilization, irrigation, disease management, equipment needs and requirements for planting the orchard.UGA Extension pecan specialist Lenny Wells will moderate the course and encourages all pecan farmers to attend. The latest variety trial research being conducted on the UGA Tifton campus will be included in the presentation, as will new techniques that farmers can use for successful crop production.“Last year, many people who had already been growing pecans for years came (to the course). Everyone seemed to take something useful from it,” Wells said. “The pecan industry continues to grow exponentially in Georgia. A course like this allows us to teach young farmers about pecans and what it takes to grow and produce them.”Wells will be one of the many UGA experts in attendance to talk about pecan production. He’ll speak about production costs, irrigation requirements of pecan trees, fertilization, equipment needs and pecan tree orchard establishment.Patrick Conner, a pecan breeder on the UGA Tifton campus, will address different varieties available to farmers, including ‘Avalon,’ his newest release. It will be available to farmers this spring.Tim Grey, Extension weed specialist, will address pecan producers’ potential weed control needs. Will Hudson, Extension entomologist, will cover insects that impact pecan production. Jason Brock, Extension plant pathologist, will talk about disease management.“As farmers will see by the agenda, there’s a lot to cover because there’s much to consider if you’re thinking about becoming a pecan farmer. There are many variables, not to mention the fact that you’re not going to start producing fruit for at least six to eight years,” Wells said. “Can you live without a crop for that long before seeing a financial return? That’s an important fact that producers have to be aware of.”Pecans are a highly valuable crop in Georgia. According to the UGA Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development, the farm gate value for pecans in 2015 was $361.3 million. Pecans were grown on 165,301 acres and accounted for 51.14 percent of the value of all fruits and nuts in Georgia.(Julia Rodriguez is an intern on the UGA Tifton Campus.)last_img read more

By acting quickly and professionally, all twenty crew members were able to secure themselves in the citadel,” Boskalis said.A citadel is a secured space in the vessel equipped with various means of communication and emergency rations“Upon alerting the local authorities of Equatorial Guinea and the NATO mission MDAT-GoG (Maritime Domain Awareness for Trade – Gulf of Guinea), two helicopters were immediately mobilized from Equatorial Guinea, followed by a navy vessel of Equatorial Guinea and one from the Spanish navy, part of the MDAT-GoG mission,” Boskalis said.“Monday morning at daylight, the Blue Marlin was boarded and fully searched by the navy of Equatorial Guinea and Spain. No pirates were found and the crew was freed from the citadel. All the crew members are in good health. The pirates shot several times during their time aboard the Blue Marlin and caused substantial material damage on the bridge, preventing the ship from being sailable. The vessel is currently approximately 40 miles offshore Equatorial Guinea, in international waters,” Boskalis added.After the freeing of the Blue Marlin, the Spanish naval vessel left Monday afternoon, followed in the evening by the naval vessel of Equatorial Guinea. The latter vessel left five armed guards on board to protect the Blue Marlin. Boskalis has now mobilized a oceangoing tug to take the Blue Marlin to a safe location, Boskalis said.The Spanish Defense Ministry tweeted that its Serviola patrol vessel freed the crew from the citadel, without finding the pirates aboard.last_img read more
