Vulfpeck Announces 15 Dates For 2017 Tour

first_imgVulfpeck has only hit the road for a continuous amount of time once before, in support of their Sleepify efforts, in which the band used Spotify to raise funds for an admission-free tour by releasing a ten-track silent album. Their growing cyber fan base was instructed to play the album on repeat overnight, which generated $20,000 in royalties and ultimately funded Vulfpeck’s first and only real tour in 2014. Since then, the band has made clear that they are not interested in spending time on the road, but rather to play big shows in various cities.Today, the Michigan-bred quartet announced their first, real tour in 2017. They’ll be heading to Minneapolis, Chicago, Toronto, Ann Arbor, Portland, Denver, Los Angeles, Santa Ana, and San Francisco from May 1 through June 7. This is a truly historical moment, as the band who never toured will now take their most recent release A Beautiful Game on the road with them for what is sure to be an incredible run. We can’t help but hope that fellow Vulf collaborators like Cory Wong, Antwaun Stanley, and Joey Dosik will be there too.VULFPECK SHOWS:01 MAY 2017 First AveMinneapolis, MN02 MAY 2017 First AveMinneapolis, MN04 MAY 2017 MetroChicago, IL05 MAY 2017 MetroChicago, IL08 MAY 2017 Lee’s PalaceToronto, ON09 MAY 2017 Lee’s PalaceToronto, ON12 MAY 2017 Michigan TheaterAnn Arbor, MI26 MAY 2017 Crystal BallroomPortland, OR30 MAY 2017 Ogden TheatreDenver, CO31 MAY 2017 Red RocksMorrison, CO02 JUN 2017 The RegentLos Angeles, CA03 JUN 2017 The RegentLos Angeles, CA04 JUN 2017 The ObservatorySanta Ana, CA06 JUN 2017 The FillmoreSan Francisco, CA07 JUN 2017 The FillmoreSan Francisco, CAFor more information and tickets, head to the band’s website.

Making small changes to achieve extraordinary results

first_imgWhat would happen to your life if you gave everything just 5% more effort?Michael Alden, author of 5% MORE: Making Small Changes To Achieve Extraordinary Results, says it transforms everything. Success is often the result of applying just a little bit more effort.It’s not always a massive effort, a radical change, or an overhaul. Often it’s just changing at the margin that makes all the difference.I recently had the opportunity to ask Michael about his research and new book. Michael Alden is the founder and CEO of Blue Vase Marketing and a recipient of SmartCEO Magazine’s 2016 Future 50 Award.What made you decide to research the concept of 5%?After the publication of my first book, Ask More, Get More, I received some fantastic feedback and accolades.  But as I continued to speak with people about achieving their goals, I found that many of them wanted more.  Despite all of the time and money they put into “personal development,” they were not where they wanted to be.  I wondered, why are so many people stuck?  Is there something that the average, everyday person can do to get ahead?  And is it something that is truly achievable, something that doesn’t cost money, something that yields real tangible results? continue reading » 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Reserve cable of Spain-Morocco link fixed

first_imgThe cable laying ship EDT Hercules carried out the sealing operations. Red Electrica also mobilised all the necessary technical and human resources, taking into account the depth where the damage was. The leak incident took place in Moroccan waters 21.6 kilometres off Spain at a depth of 208 metres. Nevertheless, the security of the electricity supply through the interconnection was not compromised at any time thanks to its double circuit and the fact that the cable affected was not in service. There are also talks for a third link between the countries. The seven cables, which cross the Strait of Gibraltar, run from Tarifa, Spain, to Fardioua, Morocco. Spanish grid operator Red Electrica and its Moroccan counterpart ONEE have completed the works to seal the leak in the reserve cable of the link between Spain and Morocco.center_img The electricity interconnection between Spain and Morocco consists of two 400 kV lines. One came into service in 1997 and the other in 2006. The companies advised the Spanish maritime authorities and all the authorities and groups concerned on 31 July. After a brief interruption of just a few hours in the use of the link during the works to seal the leak, which was necessary for safety reasons, the two circuits that make up the interconnection between the two countries were brought back into service following the completion of the repair works. Specifically, the interconnection comprises a total of seven cables: three per circuit, plus one reserve cable. last_img read more

TENNIS : Syracuse wins final two matches to defeat Binghamton

first_imgAnd her teammates proved her right. Both girls were able to defeat their opponents and save the match for SU head coach Luke Jensen and his squad. Harman won the 12th game of her second set with BU’s Lauren Bates and finished her off 7-5 in the final set. In doing so, she defeated an opponent who had taken her down in straight sets a year ago. ‘It would’ve been easy for us to walk off the court, give up and say, ‘Oh, it wasn’t my day,” Harman said. ‘But that’s not how we work here.’ [email protected] With the victory, Syracuse extended its home winning streak to 14. And Parra credited the clutch victories to the experience of both herself and Harman. Facebook Twitter Google+ ‘This team has a bulletproof mentality when it faces pressure,’ Jensen said. Parra edged the Bearcats’ Anna Edelman in a second-set tiebreaker to force a third set and took the final set 7-6. And with everything on the line Friday afternoon, Parra and Harman came through for their team. Published on February 6, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Stephen: [email protected] | @Stephen_Bailey1 And the two players left on the court for SU, Alessondra Parra and Emily Harman, were both trailing their Binghamton counterparts.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Jensen tells the players to think of these matches as real ones against other teams. He tells them to get into a competitive mindset. And he tells them to play like ‘everything is on the line,’ Parra said.center_img Maddie Kobelt stared blankly at the wall opposite from her teammates who were still competing. Disappointed and clearly upset, the SU freshman lifted a tissue to her eye. ‘This is not new for us, even though it’s a challenge,’ Parra said. ‘We know to relax in tight matches like this and just let our best come out of us without forcing anything.’ This mental fortitude roots from extra hours in the weight room and conditioning. Every member of the Orange is required to run five miles in under 40 minutes each fall, Parra said. SU players are ready for these three-set matches, whereas some opponents clearly feel the strain of playing point after point.Harman prides herself on the team’s elite level of conditioning. Kobelt had just dropped her No. 2 singles match after winning the first set and holding a 4-1 lead in the third set. That loss left the Orange trailing Binghamton by one in the best-of-seven match format. ‘We work to win,’ Harman said. ‘End of story.’ Though coming into the season in shape is important, the work the Orange has done in practice is just as valuable. One of Jensen’s coaching philosophies is encouraging competition in practice. Players regularly compete in matches against their teammates. Comments While both Bearcat opponents looked rattled late in their respective matches, Jensen’s pair was cool, calm and collected. It’s a quality most of Syracuse’s players actively display on the courts. Jensen said this attitude is one of the signature traits of his team. ‘This team is one of the fittest in the country,’ Harman said. ‘I’m very confident in saying that. … I’d like to see another team do what we did today.’last_img read more
