Almost a month after concluding their Wheels of Soul run at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Tedeschi Trucks Band regrouped last night in Syracuse, New York for a performance at the Chevrolet Court for the New York State Fair. The husband-and-wife duo led their 12-piece ensemble through a 15-song set, welcoming moe. guitarist Al Schnier for a collaboration on Derek and the Dominos‘ “Tell the Truth”.Mixing together their own blues-tinged originals with an exceptional mix of classic covers, Tedeschi Trucks Band was in full-force last night. Keeping it close to home with covers of Derek Trucks Band‘s “Get What You Deserve”, and reaching into familiar pockets for covers of The Band‘s “Down In The Flood” (perfomed by TTB for the third time ever since their debut earlier this year), Johnny Moore’s Three Blazers‘ “How Blue Can You Get?”, and Joe Cocker‘s “Space Captain”, Tedeschi Trucks Band frequently uses the inspiration of these covers to expand upon their own authenticity. Without knowing the origins of these songs beforehand, one is safe to assume they belong to TTB when they play them.During their cover of Derek and the Dominos’ “Tell The Truth”, Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi welcomed out moe. guitarist Al Schnier for a nearly 10-minute collaboration, marking one of the night’s greatest highlights. Toward the end of the show, the band really let loose and turned in 13+ minute versions of their own “I Want More” and “Midnight In Harlem”.Thanks to binto37, you can listen to the full show below:Tedeschi Trucks Band – Chevrolet Court at the New York State Fair – Syracuse, NY – 8/23/18[Audio: binto37]Setlist: Tedeschi Trucks Band | Chevrolet Court at the New York State Fair | Syracuse, NY | 8/23/18Don’t Let Me Slide, Laugh About It, High & Mighty, Get What You Deserve (Derek Trucks Band), Lord Protect My Child (Bob Dylan), Bound For Glory, Made Up My Mind, Down In The Flood (The Band), Part of Me, Tell the Truth (Derek and the Dominos, feat.

He said his goal is to reopen in the fall with as many students in-person as possible, but the district will be focusing on younger students. “We are focusing on the elementary population, whether that’s K-5, K-6, K-8 whatever configuration we land on that’s the population that we are looking at, and the same thing that the other districts are talking about, what do you do with the high school you know?” Gill said. The deadline for districts to submit their reopen plan proposals is this Friday, July 31. The state education department will then review them over the next week, and then submit final guidance during the first week in August. Superintendent Dr. David Gill of the Chenango Valley Central School District told 12 News Wednesday he has created three reopening plan proposals. These include a full reopen in-person, a hybrid approach, and a fully remote option. TOWN OF FENTON (WBNG) — With so much uncertainty surrounding the upcoming school year, districts have to plan ahead. The district held a regular board of education meeting Wednesday night where Gill presented his various proposals to the board. He said the board would review them, add any last minute guidance and then approve them by Thursday. He said this was necessary because schools still do not have final guidance from the state, and with the ever-evolving coronavirus situation, districts need to be able to adapt.
The likely national figure is well below the more than 700 infections detected in a single day earlier this month, although authorities urged some caution.”We shouldn’t hang everything on a single day’s result, but overall the trend is good,” Victoria state’s Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton told reporters in Melbourne.Australia has now recorded nearly 24,000 cases of COVID-19, while the death toll rose to 438 after 17 people in Victoria died from the virus in the last 24 hours.The slowdown in new infections comes two weeks after the Victorian capital Melbourne imposed a nightly curfew, tightened restrictions on movement and ordered large parts of the state’s economy to close. Australia’s biggest biotech company CSL Ltd, meanwhile, said it was in talks with AstraZeneca to determine if the potential COVID-19 vaccine being developed by the British drugmaker could be manufactured locally.”We are assessing the viability of options ranging from the fill and finish of bulk product imported to Australia through to manufacture of the vaccine candidate under license,” a company spokeswoman said in an emailed statement.The government on Sunday said it was close to striking a deal that would permit the production of a vaccine in Australia, likely in 2021.Still, officials urged people to continue practicing social distancing and to wear a masks if in a crowded venue.Masks are only mandatory in Victoria, and many people in other states continue to shun health advice. Sydney bus drivers on Tuesday said they would strike for 48 hours if face coverings were not made mandatory. Australia was on track on Tuesday to record its lowest one-day rise in new COVID-19 infections in a month, buoying hopes that a stringent lockdown in the country’s second-most populous state has prevented a fresh wave of cases nationally.Victoria, the epicenter of Australia’s latest COVID-19 outbreak, said it detected 222 cases in the past 24 hours, while the country’s most populous state, New South Wales, reported three new infections.Although not all other states had reported on Monday, most have effectively eliminated the virus, putting the country on course to post its lowest one-rise since 212 cases on July 18.

The property offers privacy and seclusion plus the 44m of absolute beachfrontage is spellbinding,” he told The Courier-Mail.More big dollar sales were expected to come out of Queensland this year given the breadth of luxury lifestyle properties and the large number of active local investors and sea-changers as well as expatriates from London, Dubai, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore in the market.“The expat and interstate market continue to fuel the high-end property sales in Noosa,” Mr Hunter said. “You can never put a cap on the lifestyle that people are seeking (and how much they’ll pay).”At close to $22 million, the super-sized 3,595sq m estate will change hands for three times what owner IT entrepreneur Daniel Wallis paid five years ago. Mr Hunter put the recordbreaking sale of 21-23 Webb Road, Sunshine Beach, down to how rare the property was.“The actual land component is such a rarity on the coast. There would be a handful of properties like it and how often does one actually become available to the market? It’s extremely rare, that’s why it sold so quickly.”Queensland’s most expensive residence sold in the past two years was Tidemark, the home of former Billabong executive Scott Perrin which landed $25 million in late 2016, while Brisbane’s top sale in that period was $18.48 million for a spectacular cliffhanger 1 Leopard Street, Kangaroo Point.

Allianz’s €654.3m Austrian Pensionskasse was the best performing fund in almost every risk category in both three- and five-year periods to the end of 2016, according to Mercer.The consultancy presented the results of long-term research into performance reported by Austrian Pensionskassen on Wednesday.As each pension fund in Austria runs different portfolios for different clients – and different risk categories within those, according to a life cycle model – comparisons of overall returns are difficult.According to the statistics compiled by Mercer, the Pensionskasse offered by Allianz performed best in the defensive, conservative, balanced, and active risk categories over both three- and five-year periods. For the defensive category, for funds with equity exposure under 16%, Allianz returned 4.83% over three years, 100 basis points ahead of second-placed VBV.In the balanced category (equities between 24% and 32%), Allianz funds took first and second place over three years with returns of 6.25% 5.3%. Valida was in third place with 4.73%.In the dynamic category – for funds with 40% or more in equities – VBV claimed first place with a 5.8% gain.The statistics do not reveal the worst performer in each category, but the spread between first and third place in several categories was significant.Over a five-year-period Allianz remained the best performer in all categories with the exception of dynamic, which the €6.3bn VBV led.The spread in performance over the five-year time period was most pronounced in the balanced and active (32% to 39% equity share) categories. While Allianz returned 6.93% and 7.40% annualised in each category respectively, the market average was 4.98% and 5.89%.In an interview with IPE, Allianz Austria’s CIO Martin Bruckner said: “We were not too worried by the market downturn at the start of last year and were able to use it to buy some overweight in equities.”At the presentation of the results Michaela Plank, principal at Mercer Austria, commented: “The long-term performance of Austrian Pensionskassen is good in light of the volatile markets.”The major performance driver last year, when the overall market performance was 4.2%, was similar for most Pensionskassen. “We further increased emerging market bonds,” said Martin Sadelic, managing director at Valida, which manages €6.6bn in total both for the Valida Pensionskasse as well as the Valida Industriepensionskasse, the former Siemens corporate pension plan.Results for “Vorsorgekassen” were also presented, covering the provident funds managing assets for the mandatory severance pay provision each employer has to build up for their staff.The NÖ Vorsorgekasse was the best performer last year with 3.59%, while the market returned 2.25% on average. Over three years it gained 3.07%, beating the market’s 2.46%.As contributions to Vorsorgekassen are mandatory since 2003 assets in this segment have grown to almost €9.5bn as per year-end 2016 with over €1.3bn in contributions for last year.For the full chart of returns by Austrian retirement providers as well as further information on the country’s pension debate see IPE’s April issue.
Steve and Roberta Huster hold Hooker Deer Drags in front of their shop, aka “company headquarters.”SUNMAN, Ind. – A local company hopes to strike it rich when they appear on the Discovery Channel’s ‘Billy Bob’s Gags to Riches’ on Tuesday, November 25.Steve and Roberta Huster are the owners of Hooker Deer Drag, a Sunman-based company that invented a product to allow hunters to drag and load deer with ease.The couple was offered an opportunity to appear on the new television show, which gives inventors the chance to pitch their product or idea to Jonah White.White is the founder of the popular Billy Bob Teeth. He is now the CEO of a multi-million dollar gag-gift empire and uses the show to help find new products to add to the Billy Bob line.Steve and Roberta scored well during the interview process and traveled to the company headquarters in Hardin, Illinois, in May for filming.Steve recalls, “We took several sets of deer drags with us and when we were killing time in town, we were telling people that we were going to be filmed for the Billy Bob show.”“He is the largest employer in that county,” Roberta added.“We showed some people our pamphlets and I almost sold out of everything we brought before we even did the filming,” Steve continued. “They wanted to buy them right there on the spot, so they saw something!”Steve created the Hooker Deer Drag after several years of physically dragging a deer by any means available. He began selling the product locally in 2011 and received a design patent this year.Steve handles the sales and marketing end of the company and Roberta is a graphic designer. They told us merchandise sales are in great demand due to the slogan, “Take a Hooker to the woods with you!”The deer drags are manufactured at Wire-Tek in Sunman, and the couple assembles and ships out each order personally.“When I put it in the box before I seal it up, I always sign my name on there with a ‘thank you,’” Steven admitted. “And its genuine, I really appreciate every order.”Hooker Deer Drag has sold locally and as far away as Sweden.The couple also travels often in an effort to get the word out about the growing business. They were approached by television producers at a trade show in Pennsylvania last February.“I was very hesitant,” Roberta recalled.Referencing other reality shows, she told producers, “I cannot come on TV and have someone humiliate us, because we are a very small company.”The Sunman couple decided to go through with the interview process after learning more about Jonah, who created his wealth through hard work, family values and a creative idea.“He is a super nice guy, and has more money than he can spend on himself, his family or whatever. He feels the need to give back,” Roberta said. “Like with us, he said if you don’t get anything out of this but publicity, than people will see your product.”‘Billy Bob’s Gags to Riches’ debuted early November and the Hooker Deer Drag owners are scheduled to be shown on the fourth episode of the show.Will the Husters make a deal with Jonah White? You’ll have to watch the show to find out.“We had to sign a confidentiality agreement,” Roberta explained.Steve added, “and we are not exactly sure what is going to be on there either!”The episode airs at 10 p.m. on November 25.
Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse (26-9) will open NCAA Tournament play in the second round against Montana on Thursday at 9:57 p.m. in San Jose, Calif. The 13th-seeded Grizzlies (25-6) put together a 14-game winning streak from Dec. 19 to Feb. 9, and finished the year 19-1 in Big Sky play. This will be the program’s third trip to the tournament in the last four years, with its previous two ending in losses in the first round to New Mexico in 2010 and in the second round to Wisconsin in 2012.Montana’s leading scorer, 6-foot-7 forward Mathias Ward (14.8 ppg), is out for the remainder of the season after undergoing foot surgery earlier this month. The Daily Orange broke down Thursday’s matchup with Bob Meseroll, who covers the Grizzlies for the Missoulian.The Daily Orange: Without Ward, how does that change the dynamic for Montana going into the tournament?Bob Meseroll: I think the biggest loss is of a low-post threat. Mathias is a very good outside shooter, and he’s more of a face-up post player than a back-to-the-basket guy, but he was capable of going down low and getting some points near the rim, and that’s the biggest thing I would say that’s missing right now. They’re still getting it from their guards Will Cherry (13.9 ppg) and Kareem Jamar (14.5 ppg), but it’s in a different way. They have to drive to the basket in the case of Cherry. In the case of Jamar, he will post people up.The D.O.: How do you think Montana is suited against Syracuse’s zone? Is that something they’ve seen at all this year?AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBM: They’ve seen a fair share of zone because of Cherry and Jamar and their ability to get to the rim. A lot of people have used zone to try to clog up the middle and keep them from slashing to the rim. They’ve had mixed success, I would say, against the zone. Sometimes, they get a little tentative and settle for outside shots, and I know that, that is not what Coach (Wayne) Tinkle wants. He wants them to stay aggressive, and if they’re getting outside shots, he wants them to be for kickouts after the guys drive into the lane and kick out to shooters to get them better looks. They are a pretty good shooting team from the perimeter.The D.O.: Are there any defensive matchups Montana is concerned with against Syracuse?BM: I haven’t had a chance to talk to coach Tinkle about specific matchups yet. Defensively, though, for the Grizzlies, it starts with Will Cherry. He’s the two-time defensive player of the year in the Big Sky, and he’s second in the Big Sky all-time in career steals. He’s Montana’s leader in career steals. People will be surprised at the kind of balls he can get to.The D.O.: How do you think Cherry (6-foot-1) will match up with Syracuse’s Michael Carter-Williams (6-foot-6)?BM: I would definitely expect Will to be matched up on Carter-Williams. He always takes the opposing team’s best offensive player. Last week, because of some switches during a play, Will found himself matched up against a 6-5 kid from Northern Colorado, so of course they cleared it out and tried to isolate the 6-5 kid on Will Cherry, and they got the ball to him and the kid went up for a shot and Cherry blocked it. I don’t think the extra five inches are going to be a major factor.The D.O.: Do you think Syracuse’s height advantage will be a factor, or is that something Montana can overcome and adjust during the game?BM: I think what will be a big factor, and could be the decisive factor, will be rebounding. At least I’ve heard that Syracuse gets a lot of offensive rebounds, and the Grizzlies are not a great rebounding team, so I think how they’re able to hang with Syracuse on the boards will go a long way to determining the outcome.The D.O.: What is the key for Montana to pull off the upset against Syracuse?BM: I think getting off to a good start would be really important, just to maintain the confidence that they’ve played with all year. Obviously, they can’t get too far behind because against a team like Syracuse, it’s not going to be very easy to come from way back.

Pixel.bet has launched a new betting platform focused purely on esports. The website has been launched in beta and will offer an array of odds for esports fans to bet on across the biggest esports titles and events. The website is initially launched in European countries, but will operate under a Curacao license and as such will not be available to UK punters unless the company obtains a license from the UK Gambling Commission. Currently the sleek looking website lists odds for League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2, Call of Duty, Starcraft II, Overwatch, Heroes of the Storm, Street Fighter and Rocket League. It’s a comprehensive list of games, so there’s no shortage for bettors to choose from. Interestingly, in the bottom right corner the website lists six of the largest esports teams: Team Liquid, Fnatic, Evil Geniuses, Virtus.pro, FaZe Clan and SK Gaming although clicking on each of the teams doesn’t actually do anything. Richard Smith, pixel.bet CEO, commented: “At present, eSports fans are not being served in the way they deserve. Their favourite games are tucked away in a small corner of a huge sports betting platform where the focus is football or tennis.“We want to change all that by focusing purely on the games we and they love. We know what they want because we want it to.“Pixel.bet has been designed to offer eSports fans a platform that is simple, fast and seamless. We spent a lot of time optimising the UX, making a solution that would be simple to place a bet while watching your favourite team playing live on Twitch.”Esports Insider says: Another dedicated esports operator enters the fray. The space is getting busier and busier as time goes on, and it still remains to be seen if traditional bookmakers are winning the battle over dedicated. This year will likely provide us with a big indication.
