Last night, Tedeschi Trucks Band brought their riveting 12-piece to Bethel Woods Center for the Arts as part of their Wheels of Soul tour. With special guests and brothers Luther Dickinson and Cody Dickinson, and singer David Hidalgo on set, the night wrapped into a blues-twangin’, soul-stirrin’, cover-heavy night to remember. From Sly & The Family Stone to The Lovin’ Spoonful, Traffic and Elmore James, Bob Dylan and The Beatles, the band really brought new heights to some of the songs that have been shifting around their catalogue. A definite highlight of the night was when Cody Dickinson joined the stage on the electric washboard for a tribute to Carlos Santana on his birthday, covering “Soul Sacrifice.”Soul Sacrifice (with Cody Dickinson on electric washboard)With A Little Help From My Friends (with Luther Dickinson on guitar)Sky Is Crying (with David Hidalgo)[via YouTube user Sean Roche]You can also stream the full show below, courtesy of Yossi3080:Check out the full setlist.fm listing below:Edit this setlist | More Tedeschi Trucks Band setlists
There are more than 120,000 species of flies in the world. Butwhen most people hear “fly,” they think of the housefly. Whereverpeople are found, houseflies are there, too. Immature houseflies are called maggots. They live in moist,decaying, organic material, such as garbage or feces. When thelarva pupates, it forms a hard outer pupal shell and becomes anadult within it.In the warmth of summer, a housefly can complete its life cyclefrom egg to adult in about 10 days, with as many as a dozengenerations per summer.Once the adult fly emerges, it must feed and mate. Typically, anadult fly lives only a few days. In her lifetime, though, afemale housefly can produce three or four batches of eggs, withmore than 100 eggs per batch.Whoa!Theoretically, a single pair of houseflies mating in the springcould result in trillions of flies before the summer’s end.Fortunately, diseases and predators prevent this potential frombeing realized.Houseflies can’t chew food, so they must spit on it to soften itbefore they sop it up. They also have a tendency to defecatewhile eating, so they’re very good at contaminating food.Considering where flies come from, it’s best not to let them walkaround on our food.Because they can spend the winter in buildings such as barns andgarages, adult houseflies can be active on warm days even inwinter.When temperatures cool at night, flies become inactive and reston overhead surfaces. Typically, they stay close to food andegg-laying sites such as garbage and manure.While traps can catch a lot of flies and insecticides may kill afew, the best way to suppress them is to keep the maggots frombecoming adult flies. Eliminating breeding sites is the onlylong-term strategy and requires good sanitation.How to stop fliesSo, clean up potential breeding areas and properly dispose ofthese materials. Seal garbage inside plastic trash bags to keepflies from having access.Garbage cans and dumpsters should have tight-fitting lids and becleaned regularly. They should be placed as far as possible frombuilding entrances. You don’t want to lure flies in so they hangout near the door and come inside when it’s opened.Because flies can’t be completely eliminated, it’s important tokeep them out of our homes with screens and other methods.Restaurants and warehouses sometimes use air curtains to createan airflow that keeps flies from flying in. Light traps can beused to catch those that manage to get inside.Flies are so successful and prolific that the fight against themand the annoyance they cause is unlikely ever to be won. Afterall, as Ogden Nash reminded us, “God in his wisdom made the flyand then forgot to tell us why.” Volume XXXINumber 1Page 15
Dutch-Ghanaian Winter Olympian Akwasi Frimpong has today been appointed as the seventh member of the Start-Up Group for the new Athlete-led Movement for change, Global Athlete.In joining Global Athlete, Frimpong who made history at Pyeongchang 2018 by becoming West Africa’s first male skeleton athlete at a Winter Olympic Games – is part of a growing number of cause-driven athletes worldwide that want to reform sport and bridge the current disconnect between administrators and athletes with regards to the way sport is run. Frimpong has joined Global Athlete to give athletes their rightful say at the decision-making table alongside administrators – something he believes is currently absent from Olympic and Paralympic sport – and to ensure athletes are treated fairly.“At a time when athletes are rising, I am delighted to be joining Global Athlete so that I can play my part in creating history by changing the way sport is run at the very top,” said Frimpong.“Positive change in the world of sport is inevitable. Athletes and administrators who are bold, ambitious and crazy enough to believe they can create positive change to the way that sport is governed are the ones that usually succeed. “We must embrace the ambition of those that want to change sport for the better, and there can be no time to waste in securing that change,” he added. The 33-year-old, who was born in Ghana and moved to the Netherlands aged eight, has been an inspiration to millions of aspiring athletes across Africa and the world through his Hope of a Billion campaign. Frimpong established Hope of a Billion having been motivated by an ambition to become the first African to win a medal at the Winter Olympics. Through the campaign, Frimpong aims to become an example for more than a billion Africans and underdog athletes who have been told their sporting dreams are not possible. With Hope of a Billion, Frimpong provides an example that ‘any dream, whether it is being a doctor, a lawyer, a businessperson or an Olympian, is possible with hard work, dedication and perseverance’. “I am thrilled to welcome Akwasi to our growing athlete movement,” said Global Athlete Director General, Rob Koehler. “Akwasi has an incredible backstory of courage and triumph in the face of adversity, and it is athletes like him that have inspired so many others to speak up when things need improving and to stand up for what’s right. “Our Start-Up Group looks forward to working with Akwasi as, collectively, they reach out to athletes from all sports and all countries to improve and modernise athlete rights,” he added.

Baltimore Ravens football player and former Rutgers University standout, Ray Rice holds hands with his wife Janay Palmer as they arrive at Atlantic County Criminal Courthouse in Mays Landing, N.J., Thursday, May 1, 2014. (AP Photo/Mel Evans)The attorney leading the NFL players’ union investigation into the Ray Rice domestic violence case told The Associated Press the league and the Baltimore Ravens have not been cooperating.Richard Craig Smith told the AP on Friday night that the NFL has not provided documents and witnesses requested by the NFLPA’s investigators, while the Ravens have refused any cooperation with similar requests.“I am interested in the facts, and if we get cooperation from all the parties that were involved, we will have an understanding of what happened,” Smith said. “We cannot accept public statements that call for transparency, candor and openness and then not allow the investigators to do their jobs.”The union’s investigation, like a similar probe organized by the NFL, isn’t a law enforcement inquiry and the parties involved aren’t under any legal obligation to comply with requests. The league and the union, however, have each said separately that they wanted answers in the case.A spokesman for the NFL couldn’t comment immediately when reached Friday night while a spokesman for the Ravens didn’t immediately return a phone message.NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Rice indefinitely Sept. 8 for violating the league’s personal conduct policy, once video of Rice hitting his then-fiancee was released publicly.The players’ union hired Smith, a former federal prosecutor, one month ago to oversee its investigation into how the Ravens and the league handled themselves during the events that led to the suspension, as well as how the team handled issues like due process. Separately, the NFL hired former FBI director Robert S. Mueller III to conduct a probe into how the league handled evidence as it investigated the claims against Rice. NFL owners plan to make the findings of Mueller’s report public.Smith said the union’s investigation is important to ensuring the process was fair, and that requires transparency.“If the NFL is genuinely concerned about fixing the issues that led to an admitted mistake, then they should be honest and forthright about what they knew and when they knew it,” Smith said. “We want both our team and Bob Mueller’s team each to be able to conduct a thorough review of all the relevant facts.”Smith, the head of regulatory and governmental investigation for the law firm Norton Rose Fulbright, represented the union during the Saints bounty scandal that resulted in four players being reinstated from suspension through an appeal in 2012.Goodell originally suspended Rice for two games. Once the video became public, the Ravens cut Rice, and the league banned him indefinitely. The league considered the video to be new evidence, giving Goodell the authority to further suspend Rice.The players’ union appealed Rice’s suspension, saying he should not be punished twice. Former U.S. District Judge Barbara S. Jones was selected by the commissioner and the players’ union to hear the appeal. A person familiar with the case told the AP that Judge Jones told Goodell on Wednesday that he should testify at the hearing, which will be held Nov. 5-6.The person, speaking on condition of anonymity because details haven’t been made public, said Adolpho Birch, the NFL’s vice president for labor policy, league attorney Kevin Manara and security chief Jeffery Miller also are expected to testify along with Ravens President Dick Cass and general manager Ozzie Newsome. Rice plans to testify and his wife, Janay, might testify, the person said.___AP NFL websites: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow Rob Maaddi on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP_RobMaaddi
