Watch Karina Rykman Jam Out “China Cat Sunflower” On ‘Live From Out There’ [Video]

first_imgOn Monday, bassist Karina Rykman shared her performance of “China Cat Sunflower” from the Live From Out There tribute to Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter. The performance from the rising Marco Benevento bassist and her temporary lineup originally aired on April 26th.11E1even Group‘s six-week lineup of Live From Out There programming came to a close on Sunday, April 26th with a tribute to the Grateful Dead lead guitarist and his lyrical counterpart. The celebration also featured contributions from Alex Bleeker, Julian Lynch and Martin Courtney (Real Estate), George Porter Jr., Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes), Chris Funk (The Decemberists), Brian Elmquist (The Lone Bellow), James Petralli (White Denim), Hiss Golden Messenger, Paul Hoffman (Greensky Bluegrass), Jay Blakesberg, and more.Related: Watch WABC-TV’s Report On The Unshakable Fortitude Of Karina RykmanThis one-off performance wasn’t with Rykman’s eponymous solo band—with Adam November (drums) and Chris Corsico (drums)—but rather her makeshift quarantine pod band including Marlo Shankweiler (guitar), Isaac Slone (guitar), Nathan Slone (drums), and of course Rykman holding down the low end.In the absence of the pro-shot drone style footage fans saw during Quarantine Comes Alive, this performance takes on a much greater DIY nature. Combine the singular camera angle with non-mastered sound, and it even takes on a bit of a garage band-style quality. That is not to take away from the actual merits of the improvisation itself, as some of the best jamming can be found inside garages all across the country—and some of the best Dead can be heard via suboptimal recordings.Watch Karina Rykman and company perform “China Cat Sunflower” at Live From Out There back in April.Karina Rykman – “China Cat Sunflower” (Grateful Dead) – Live From Out There – 4/26/20[Video: Karina Rykman]last_img read more

Player will ‘do everything possible’ to secure transfer this summer, that’s…

first_imgThe Croatian midfielder forced his way out of the Spanish club last summer, feeling he wouldn’t be valued enough there.With Zinedine Zidane now back in charge at the Bernabeu, Kovacic’s mind is even further made up. Despite Madrid being one of the biggest clubs on the planet… it’s not somewhere he wants to be.A couple of week ago we covered claims from Marca that the footballer’s ‘priority’ is to sign for Chelsea beyond the end of the current campaign.He’s found what he was looking for, at least to a certain extent, and is enjoying living in London.The big problem is Chelsea’s registration ban, which will make a summer move impossible, unless CAS either overturn the ban or allow the Blues to sign players whilst a full appeal is heard.Tuesday’s edition of Marca makes it very clear that Kovacic has made his mind up and isn’t set to change it.The 24 year old will ‘do everything possible’ to secure himself a Real Madrid exit, whether that’s to Chelsea or anywhere else.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Strategy Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoDating.comWhere do attractive singles meet in Tung Chung?Dating.comUndoManuka FeedFeeling Stressed Out?

New college baseball wristband rule may thwart sign stealing

first_img FOLLOW US SUBSCRIBE TO US First Published: 14th February, 2020 22:40 IST LIVE TV Last Updated: 14th February, 2020 22:40 IST New College Baseball Wristband Rule May Thwart Sign Stealing A new rule intended to help speed up the game also could thwart attempts to steal signs in college baseball. A new rule intended to help speed up the game also could thwart attempts to steal signs in college baseball.The NCAA will allow a pitcher to wear a wristband with a signal card when the season opens Friday, allowing him and the catcher to look into the dugout to get pitch calls and eliminating the need for the catcher to relay the call with hand signs.Sign stealing has come to the fore since the Houston Astros were found to have used electronics to steal signs during their run to the 2017 World Series championship and in the 2018 season.The wristband rule in college baseball was put in to expedite the process of coaches calling pitches from the dugout with the implementation of the 20-second limit between pitches.“The wristbands with the card that you can change every inning makes it harder for people to steal signs,” Minnesota coach John Anderson said. “We’re in a similar space as professional baseball with all the video systems and cameras and more television broadcasts today.”Attempts to steal signs has always been accepted in baseball, with coaches and players keeping an eye on the opponent’s on-field mannerisms, how the catcher sets up or how fielders move, not to mention trying to figure out hand signs.“There’s a way to pick pitches and a way not to pick pitches,” UCLA coach John Savage said. “If you get an unfair advantage from the in-game (TV) monitor or center field camera and relay pitches right away, I just think it’s very unethical.“The message has been sent. Everybody’s been talking about it literally every day since that (Astros) thing came out and they’re still talking about it, and it’s not going away. Your job as a staff is to make sure that you fix anything you’re doing in terms of giving away pitches. That’s always been on the plate. But this other way of doing it is clearly crossing the line.”An investigation found that the Astros used the video feed from a center field camera to view and decode opposing catcher’s signs. Players banged on a trash can to signal to batters what was coming, believing it would improve chances of getting a hit.Illegal sign-stealing hasn’t been a big issue in college baseball except for one notable exception. In 2004, Florida State coach Mike Martin accused Miami of stealing his catcher’s signs using a clubhouse television and walkie-talkies.According to news accounts, Martin said Miami’s walkie-talkies were on the same frequency as the ones the Seminoles used to communicate with their bullpen. Martin heard a Miami player correctly predict pitches to a person who apparently was in the dugout or stands, and that person somehow tipped off the batter. The Atlantic Coast Conference investigated but no action was taken.Wristbands have long been used for play-calling in football, with the quarterback getting a signal from the sideline and then looking at his wristband to match the signal with the play. Similarly, the pitcher’s wristband might display numerical combinations for specific pitches, such as 1-3-1 for a fastball and 5-4-1 for a curveball.The numbers could change throughout the game or even during an at-bat to minimize the chance of sign stealing from the opposite dugout, by a runner on second base or, worst case, by someone monitoring the TV broadcast in the clubhouse.Not all teams are on board with pitchers wearing wristband.“I think it gives them too much on their plate,” Savage said. “It’s tough enough to execute a pitch, pitch out of problems, navigate through a game. I don’t necessarily want the pitcher having to look into the dugout after every pitch and look for a sign. Our job is to come up with a system that’s really hard to pick from the pitching coach, which is myself, to the catcher.”Anderson is in wait-and-see mode. At Minnesota, the catcher and pitcher call games themselves with occasional input from coaches. Anderson said that system will continue, but he is considering having the catcher and pitcher wear wristbands and have the catcher flash signs that change by inning or situation.“We’re edging into that space, I’m afraid,” Anderson said. “We’re paranoid, no question, so we’re going to pay attention. If we feel we can’t keep our kids in position where people don’t have our signs, we’re going to have to go into that space as well.”The new rule requires the pitcher to be on the mound but not on the rubber when he looks into the dugout and then at his wristband. To not distract the batter, the card must be dark in color and worn on the inside of the forearm and wrist unless the card is covered with a flap.Savage and Anderson said they suspect, but can’t prove, some of their opponents have used technology such as TVs in the clubhouse to steal signs.“When you see guys sitting on pitches and squaring up pretty good breaking balls and change-ups in fastball counts, you start to wonder,” Anderson said. “I think we’re all a little gun shy, too, because we’re all aware of what’s potentially going on. You get a little paranoid just because you know it’s a possibility.”Image Source: AP  center_img Written By WATCH US LIVE Associated Press Television News COMMENTlast_img read more
