[Photo: Andrew Scott Blackstein] Earlier in the week, Phil Lesh, the beloved Grateful Dead bassist, announced that he would be performing a string of shows in Chicago and Nashville in November with The Terrapin Family Band—on November 15th and 16th, the ensemble will hit The Riviera Theatre in Chicago followed up by a performance on November 18th in Nashville at Exit/In. Yesterday, Phil Lesh’s son and guitarist for The Terrapin Family Band, Grahame Lesh, revealed more information about these upcoming shows, noting that Soulive and Lettuce guitarist, Eric Krasno, would be joining the group in November as a special guest performer.Eric Krasno Joins Phil Lesh For Tribute To Classic 1977 Grateful Dead Show [Photos/Videos]The news of this collaboration is by no means out of left field, as Krasno and Lesh have previously played together numerous times. Also, considering that Phil Lesh & The Terrapin Family Band’s upcoming five-night Halloween run will see the group perform with Nicki Bluhm, Robert Randolph, and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, as of late, it seems that Phil Lesh has been loving augmenting his lineup with special guests. Tickets for both of the Chicago shows and the Nashville show went on sale this morning.
Students and faculty gathered Friday to engage in feeding their minds and their stomachs. “The Professors for Lunch Series” kicked off last week to discuss “The Unintended Reformation: How a Religious Revolution Secularized Society” — the latest book of Brad Gegory, professor of Early Modern European History. The event was the first in the Series, an initiative inspired by Political Science Professor Vincent Munoz’s desire to build the intellectual life for students on campus. “Notre Dame students are fantastically smart, but it seemed to me that we should offer them more to encourage their intellectual life beyond the classroom,” Munoz said. “We do a fantastic job of providing athletic activity beyond the classroom, and ND students are known for their athletic prowess, but I don’t think they’re known for their intellectual curiosity. I think it’s there, but the culture hasn’t developed.” Munoz said that this was an immensely student-driven event, reflecting on feedback that he collected from students in classes and in conversation. Morgan Pino, senior and undergraduate assistant to Munoz, said she met with Munoz to help coordinate the event. “His basic idea was that he wanted to bring the professors to the students,” Pino said. “He sees how busy we are and felt like the students don’t necessarily get intimidated, but find the professors a little inaccessible.” Since students eat meals in the dining halls three times per day, Pino said they decided to host the event during a meal to help Notre Dame students find time for intellectual life in their busy schedules. The talks, Pino said, feature a group meal before a question-and-answer session and general conversation. Senior Laura Taylor, a participant in the talk hosted by Gregory, said the convenience of the talks gave the already-attractive event extra allure. “I was very excited about the event because it offered a ton of students from all majors the opportunity to witness a lecture from one of Notre Dame’s most renowned professors,” Taylor said. “Even better, it was offered at lunch a much more convenient time of day for most students … and it was held at an easily accessible location.” Student government’s Neal Ravindra, director of academic affairs, helped to coordinate further logistics of the event and helped attract students. “Originally [Pino] and Professor Munoz reached out to us and asked if we wanted to help promote the event and get students to come,” Ravindra said. “We mainly helped to hammer out details and to direct logistical things like advertising.” Ravindra said student government representatives are excited about the series, and would love to see it continue in the future. “We are very glad for the opportunity to provide students with this cross-disciplinary experience and to see them pursue learning outside of the classroom that’s not necessarily going to be for anything other than their intellectual development,” he said. Ravindra said the events were planned around three specific goals outlined by Munoz to nurture, help and create. “Our goals are to nurture undergraduate intellectual life beyond the classroom, to help create an interdisciplinary intellectual community among the faculty and between faculty and students and to create a forum for learning for the entire Notre Dame community, while recognizing and celebrating outstanding faculty achievements,” Ravindra said. Taylor said she plans to attend more lunches because she appreciated the opportunity to engage intellectually with faculty and students from diverse disciplines. Also, she is excited by its potential to have a positive impact on the Notre Dame community. “The atmosphere at Notre Dame is definitely one centered on academic performance; this is wonderful, but it allows students to get too wrapped up in their specialized courses of study,” Taylor said. “These opportunities for discussion are an excellent chance to broaden our minds and expose ourselves to the incredible breadth of knowledge that is being shared by our professors.” Freshmen Matt Hing of Dillon Hall and Kendra Reiser of Pangborn Hall also attended the event, and said that they enjoyed the chance to hear one of Notre Dame’s prominent professors discuss his work. “Professor Gregory is an engaging professor in class, so I wanted to hear him outside [of class],” Hing said. Resier echoed Hing’s thoughts. “I wanted to attend the event because I wanted to learn more about how religion can play a stronger role in the institution that we have,” Reiser said. Munoz said judging from the feedback of the first event, he envisions holding this event more frequently. “I think we’ve hit upon a good idea,” Munoz said. “We’re doing it to make life at Notre Dame more interesting for the students. The focus is on creating an event that would resonate with the students, what would be intellectually engaging for them. We want to not only cater to their interests, but elevate them.”
by: Matthew FrankelA mortgage can be quite a drain on your long-term financial health, and it can ultimately cost more than you expect. For example, did you know that a $200,000 30-year mortgage at 4.5% interest will cost you almost $365,000 including all of the interest?Obviously, you don’t want to pay any more than absolutely necessary. With that in mind, our experts have three suggestions that could save you thousands of dollars on your mortgage.Matt FrankelOne way to save a lot of money on your mortgage is to set up biweekly payments. Effectively, you’ll make a full extra mortgage payment each year, which can cut years off your loan while saving you thousands in interest.With a biweekly plan, instead of paying your entire mortgage payment once a month, you pay half of the standard amount on a specified date every two weeks. Over the course of a year, you’ll make 26 half-payments, which are equivalent to 13 full payments. continue reading » 7SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr

CUNA filed a petition seeking TCPA relief last month, and it was issued for comment by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) last week.“We ask you to consider these issues as the Subcommittee marks-up legislation to amend the Communications Act of 1934 to reauthorize appropriations for the FCC, to provide for certain procedural changes to the rules of the Commission to maximize opportunities for public participation and efficient decision making, and for other purposes,” wrote CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle.CUNA’s petition requests the FCC issue a declaratory ruling that wireless informational calls to credit union member-owners with whom the credit union has an established business relationship, or where the call or text is in fact free, be exempt from the TCPA’s prior express consent requirement for autodialed and artificial or prerecorded voice calls. 9SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr

(BBC) – BRAZILIAN football star, Neymar, has denied an accusation that he raped a woman in Paris.According to a police report filed in São Paulo, the woman alleges that the attack took place in a hotel in the French capital, where Neymar plays for Paris St-Germain (PSG).Neymar sought to prove his innocence by posting what he says is an exchange of Whatsapp messages between the pair.He is now in Brazil training with the national team for the Copa América.What are the allegations?According to police documents, the woman – who has not been named – got to know Neymar on Instagram and he suggested they meet in Paris.He provided her with an air ticket from Brazil to France and a reservation at a luxury hotel in Paris.When Neymar came to the hotel on 15 May, he was “apparently drunk”, the woman alleges.After conversation and embraces, “at some point, Neymar became aggressive, and through violence, engaged in sexual intercourse against the will of the victim”, the police document states.The woman returned to Brazil two days later, without reporting the alleged incident to French police, because she was “emotionally shaken and afraid to register the facts in another country”, the document continues.What does Neymar say?In a statement released after the accusations became public, the footballer’s management condemned “the unjust accusations and, above all, the exposure in the press of an extremely negative situation”.The statement said Neymar had been the “victim of an attempted extortion” and “evidence of attempted extortion and non-rape will be submitted to the police authorities”.Neymar directly addressed the allegations in a seven-minute video on his Instagram page.The unmarried footballer posted the video alongside the caption (in Portuguese): “Due to extortion, I’m being forced to expose my life and my family..”Speaking in Portuguese, the footballer said: “I’m very upset but from now on I’ll expose or tell all about what happened with that girl. It was an intimate thing but I have to open myself up to prove that nothing exceptional happened.“What happened that day was a relationship between a man and a woman, within four walls, like with any couple. And the next day nothing much happened. We kept exchanging messages. She asked me for a souvenir for [her child].”During the video, the 27-year-old shows what he claims to be a long series of WhatsApp messages with the woman, including photographs of her in her underwear.He says he had to make them public to “prove that nothing really happened”.Neymar’s father, Neymar dos Santos, also dismissed the allegations, telling Band TV in Brazil on Saturday that “it is clear that it was a trap”.
Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on February 26, 2014 at 9:34 pm Contact Tyler: [email protected] For the first time this season, No. 2 Syracuse (5-0, 2-0 Atlantic Coast) trailed at the end of the first half. Then a successful comeback in the second frame produced a familiar result.Alyssa Murray and Katie Webster both netted hat tricks to help the Orange storm past No. 10 Boston College (3-1, 1-1) for a hard-fought 11-9 victory in Newton, Mass. With the win, Syracuse now sits in sole possession of first place in the ACC.“We rushed our shots early on, and some of our players lost a little confidence,” SU head coach Gary Gait said. “We came out in the second and responded.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe game remained scoreless until Murray received a pass from Kayla Treanor and fired it past BC goalkeeper Emily Mata with 19:41 remaining in the first half.Mata, though, made five saves during the frame to help the Eagles jump in front. Mikaela Rix provided the offensive fireworks by firing three tallies past SU’s Kelsey Richardson to help build a 4-3 lead by the break.“It was extremely cold, and it played into BC’s style,” Gait said. “They slowed the ball and the game down.”But Syracuse was able to pick up the pace.Webster tied the game only 2:22 into the second half, and minutes later a four-goal spurt put the Orange ahead for good. Treanor began the run with her 17th goal of the year, and freshman Taylor Poplawski also raised her goal tally on the season to 12. Treanor added another score for her team-leading 18th goal.The Eagles stuck around and faced a manageable 10-8 deficit with only three minutes remaining. Then an empty-net goal by Gabby Jaquith dashed any hopes of overtime.The Orange will kick off a seven-game home stand Sunday at 1 p.m. against Towson, the team’s third consecutive ranked opponent.“Being on the road isn’t a bad thing at times,” Gait said, “but it will be good to be back home in the Dome.” Comments

Tags:#Apple#mobile#web The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology dana oshiro When Smule’s Ge Wang, Lyricfind’s Darryl Ballantyne and Tapulous’ Bart Decrem got together to discuss mobile applications at the San Fran Music Tech Summit, the hottest subject was application pricing. While music publishers have searched far and wide for better monetization strategies, few facets of the business have shown the same revenue growth as mobile apps. Thanks to the iPhone, customers are used to paying for mobile applications and according to Appsfire, all but one of the top grossing apps is priced above $2.99.Appsfire recently released a list of the top 50 grossing apps in the App Store and the results are surprising. Based on a sample compiled from 1200 devices and calculated using a UNITS SOLD x UNIT PRICE formula, only Flight Control is priced as low as 99 cents. Applications such as multi-surveillance video feed app iRA Pro ($899.99), mobile podcasting application Poddio (149.99) and TomTom’s Western European navigation app ($139.99) are the list’s most expensive products. Meanwhile, more well known apps like Tweetie ($2.99), Midomi’s music identifier ($4.99) and Air Sharing ($4.99) are more moderately priced at the low end of the spectrum. Says Appsfire, “If your app brings something real to the table, be it a game or a utility…then price it accordingly. The price is right when there is a salary at the end of the month. Don’t succumb to the temptation of the 99 cent app, it’s a lure and only serves to feed the get-rich-quick fairy tales that even kids would find hard to believe.” Developers should remember to calculate Apple’s percentage into the pricing structure as well as the fact that the top downloaded apps are not necessarily the top grossing applications.
