Umphrey’s McGee Debuts Emerson, Lake & Palmer Song In Honor Of Keith Emerson

first_imgYesterday, music fans everywhere were shocked by the news of Keith Emerson’s unfortunate passing. The keyboardist was a renowned musician, powering the melodies and progressive exploration of the rock trio Emerson Lake & Palmer. Certainly, a band like Umphrey’s McGee, known for a more progressive-leaning rock sound, would have been influenced by ELP’s tremendous works.With that in mind, Umphrey’s debuted a cover of “From The Beginning” in the encore, a song featured on ELP’s 1972 album, Trilogy. The classic tune was dedicated to the memory of Keith Emerson, and executed to perfection. The show featured many highlights, including a cover of Rolling Stones’ “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking” with beloved saxophonist Skerik. While we wait for media to emerge from the show, listen to the original version of “From The Beginning” below:You can also enjoy the second set-opening “All In Time” from the show, courtesy of Mark Masterson:  Check out the full setlist below, thanks to All Things Umphrey’s:Setlist: Umphrey’s McGee at The Moore Theatre, Seattle, WA – 3/11/16Set 1: October Rain > Conduit, Miss Tinkle’s Overture, Anchor Drops > Resolution > 2×2 > Little Gift > Alex’s HouseSet 2: All In Time > Attachments, Wappy Sprayberry > All In Time, The Crooked One > Mail Package, Can’t You Hear Me Knocking[1]Encore: From the Beginning[2] > In The Kitchen[1] with Skerik on saxophone[2] debut, Emerson, Lake & PalmerNotes: From the Beginning played in remembrance of Keith Emersonlast_img read more

Is your data incomplete, outdated or just plain wrong?

first_imgSeveral years ago, there were reports about how Target uses predictive analytics to identify customers who are pregnant and then markets to them accordingly. A New York Times article included the story of a father who was upset that his teenage daughter received coupons for baby clothes and cribs … until his daughter confirmed that she was expecting.Therefore, I was not taken by surprise when, soon after reading about it, I received an email from Target congratulating me on my new baby. Except I wasn’t pregnant. I still sometimes wonder which combination of purchases it was that put me in the wrong bucket. I laughed it off and told the story a few times. But I can easily imagine how upsetting that message could have been be for a different woman in a different situation.That is an extreme example of just how bad inaccurate data can be. But bad data isn’t always wrong data. As our cover story explains, bad data is also incomplete or outdated information about your members.“Bad data happens more often than we think,” says Karan Bhalla, CEO of CUES Supplier member CU Rise Analytics, Vienna, Virginia. “Everybody is having a lot more information thrown at them every day. Managing all that data requires a big culture shift and new expertise.” ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading »last_img read more

President Trump orders policy overhaul so military academy athletes can go pro immediately

first_imgThe move, which gives Acting Secretary of Defense Mark Esper 120 days to develop a new plan, would reverse a policy Trump’s administration had executed in 2017. Athletes enrolled in military academies cannot play sports before serving at least two years in the armed forces under the current Department of Defense policy.”Once implemented, the President’s policy will empower our cherished Academies to compete even better in sporting activities against other colleges and universities, benefitting student-athletes and the Armed Forces,” Sanders said. “The president wants our military to be strong in all respects, even in athletics.” Related News Roger Staubach went on to have one of the most successful pro careers after he played college ball with Navy and served a tour of duty in Vietnam. He was quarterback for the Midshipmen from 1962-64 and earned the 1963 Heisman Trophy before winning two Super Bowls in his 11-year stint with the Cowboys. Megan Rapinoe: ‘I’m not going to the f—ing White House’ President Donald Trump fires back at Megan Rapinoe: ‘Finish the job!’ President Donald Trump on Wednesday signed a presidential memorandum ordering the Pentagon to develop a new policy to delay mandatory active service for athletes attending the nation’s military academies so they can play professional sports immediately after graduating.”Highly talented cadets and midshipmen who receive the extraordinary benefits of an education from an Academy or through a ROTC program at taxpayer expense should be able to both take advantage of the short window of time during which playing professional sports is realistically possible, while also honoring the commitment they have made to our Armed Forces and our country,” press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement, per The Hill.last_img read more
