Dead & Company Close Out Hometown Run At Shoreline Amphitheatre [Videos]

first_imgDead & Company wrapped up their two-night stand at Mountain View, CA’s Shoreline Amphitheatre on Tuesday night. Despite the show’s proximity to Independence Day, the band did not deliver a rendition of “U.S. Blues” during the hometown performance, though “New Minglewood Blues”  and “Viola Lee Blues” did make the cut.The show opened with a fun “Iko Iko” before moving on to “Alabama Getaway”, ‘New Minglewood Blues” and “Brown-Eyed Women”. Next came “Cassidy,” and “Ship of Fools” before the band closed out the segue-free first set with “Let It Grow” from their “Weather Report Suite”.Dead & Company made up for their lack of first set transitions with a second set in which the music never stopped. Things got started with a “China Cat Sunflower” the flowed right into “Althea” and “Viola Lee Blues” on its way to the expected “I Know You Rider”. Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart’s obligatory “Drums” segment followed before the rest of the band returned to guide the ship through “Space” and “The Other One v2”. Bob Weir then led the band through the latter-day Garcia/Hunter composition “The Days Between”, which melted into “Casey Jones” to end the set. Finally, Dead & Company returned for a encore take on “Ripple”.Dead & Company will return the stage on Friday night when they headline the Mattress Firm Ampitheatre in Chula Vista, CA, just outside of San Diego. However, as previously reported, the band is also hosting a pop-up in Los Angeles on Thursday afternoon, and they’re to wrap up their California run on Saturday at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.Dead & Company – “Iko Iko”[Video: nugs.tv]Dead & Company – “I Know You Rider”[Video: silverclock2]Dead & Company – “Drums”/”Space”[Video: blisstanger]Dead & Company – “Ripple” [Video: mano1971music]Setlist: Dead & Company | Shoreline Amphitheatre | Mountain View, CA | 7/3/18Set One: Iko Iko, Alabama Getaway, New Minglewood Blues, Brown-Eyed Women, Cassidy, Ship Of Fools, Let It GrowSet Two: China Cat Sunflower > Althea > Viola Lee Blues > I Know You Rider > Drums > Space > The Other One v2 > The Days Between > Casey JonesEncore: Ripplelast_img read more

Changes made to Documentary Stamp Tax return procedures

first_imgChanges made to Documentary Stamp Tax return procedures Changes made to Documentary Stamp Tax return procedures The Florida Department of Revenue has redesigned the Documentary Stamp Tax Return For Nonregistered Taxpayers’ Unrecorded Documents (Form DR-228) to enable faster, more accurate processing of returns and payments.Florida law allows persons who average less than five taxable documentary stamp tax transactions per month to remit tax by the 20th of the month following the taxable transaction. Thus, taxpayers who qualify for this tax filing option are not required to register with DOR nor are they required to file a monthly return. Instead, taxpayers with few monthly tax filing obligations file a Form DR-228.The department has asked Florida business and professional associations for assistance in helping to inform nonregistered taxpayers about this improved form.DR-228 forms may be ordered online at www.myflorida.com/dor/forms/order. Taxpayers simply enter their name, address, and telephone number; then select form number DR-228 and choose the number of returns needed.Taxpayers are encouraged to use these original forms. Any DR-228 tax returns with a revision date prior to October 2002 should be discarded.Also available is a Florida’s documentary stamp tax brochure, which reflects law changes that were made during the 2002 legislative session. This information is posted on the department’s Internet site at www.myflorida.com/dor/taxes/doc_stamp.html. Multiple copies can be ordered online; request form number GT-800014.Taxpayers can also order forms and brochures by fax at (850) 922-2208, by phone at (850) 488-8422, or by mail at: DOR Distribution Center, 168A Blountstown Hwy, Tallahassee 32304.center_img January 15, 2003 Regular Newslast_img read more

Paul Goldschmidt’s value to the Cardinals is in the details

first_imgGoldschmidt can focus on investing in his new team and new division for years to come while bringing his MVP-caliber performance and detail-oriented approach to the game. In a clubhouse that has had enough turnover that Yadier Molina and Adam Wainwright are the only regulars left from the Cardinals’ championship team in 2011 (though Matt Carpenter had a cup of coffee that year), Goldschmidt has a lot to teach the guys around him. Of course, he stays low-key about this role.“It’s not really about me. I just try to step in and do my job,” Goldschmidt said. “Follow the lead that these guys have set, try to fit in with this team, and do the best I can to help this team win.”Doing the best he can has a lot to do with the details, like tagging up and getting an extra base. If Goldschmidt keeps doing that, and his teammates can pick up and do the same, it might be enough to tilt that one game that decides the whole thing. MORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whip-around show on DAZN“I’m just honored to be a part of it,” Goldschmidt said before Thursday’s opening day game in Milwaukee.The Cardinals lost Thursday 5-4, as the Brewers’ steady starting pitching, knockout bullpen and deep lineup proved too much. Both teams know that the NL Central is shaping up to be a dogfight — in Texas the Cubs stomped the Rangers 12-4 on Thursday — and Goldschmidt was brought to St. Louis to bring the kind of boost the Cardinals need to come out on top.His credentials are undeniable, but a huge part of Goldschmidt’s worth comes from the things he does that don’t appear on his Baseball Reference page. At times last year, the Cardinals drew criticism for uncharacteristically sloppy play, so Goldschmidt’s presence carries value beyond his stat line.Cardinals manager Mike Shildt said that simply having him in the lineup “settles everything down” for the rest of the order. Even when he’s not filling up the box score, Goldschmidt has something to offer.On Thursday he struck out three times and drew an ultimately ineffectual walk, but one play in particular served as the best example of his intangibles.In the top of the sixth, while the Cardinals were down by two runs, Goldschmidt led off the inning with a walk. Paul DeJong struck out, and then after Junior Guerra relieved starter Jhoulys Chacín, Marcell Ozuna singled to left and Goldschmidt moved to second. Yadier Molina worked a full count and then flew out to Christian Yelich in right field, and Goldschmidt tagged up and hustled to third.There, with two outs, and runners now on the corners, Goldschmidt had given his team a better chance to score. It’s a small thing, but it’s the kind of detail in Goldschmidt’s game that has already stood out to teammate Matt Carpenter.“He’s a complete player. He’s not just going to be a slugger who hits in the middle of our lineup and that’s all he brings to the table,” Carpenter told Sporting News. “He really is a five-tool guy.”MORE: Fernando Tatis Jr. shows why he belongs in MLB nowCarpenter and Goldschmidt have played against each other since their high school days when both were in Texas and again as National League opponents. But for the first time Carpenter is seeing what Goldschmidt’s off-the-field work is like, and he said he’s been struck by his new teammate’s attention to detail.“It’s the quantity of his preparation,” Carpenter said.One game into the season, Goldschmidt knows the value of those little details, like tagging up and heading for third base.“We’ve seen how tough this division is. It can come down to one game,” Goldschmidt said before Thursday’s contest. “It might be this game.”Last year, the Cardinals arguably came within a baserunner of disrupting the Brewers’ path to the NLCS, so making a habit of edging out an extra base can pay off, even if it ultimately didn’t on Thursday for the Cardinals.After Goldschmidt tagged up and got to third safely, Dexter Fowler popped out to shortstop to end the inning. Goldschmidt’s efforts, it would seem, had come for nothing.But attentive fans and players of the game know better. It might not have turned into a run this time, but Goldschmidt — and his watching teammates — know that it could next time. Or the time after that. And every extra run will be needed to win the division. Before a pitch of the 2019 season was thrown, Goldschmidt’s new teammates could see what was ahead.“I’ll say this now, the team who survives this division is going to win the World Series,” Carpenter said. “Talk about being battle-tested, you’ll get a really good chance once we get out of it.”Goldschmidt knows the challenge the will come over the next six months, too. He’s played against the teams in the division before, but not 19 times a season, which makes a big difference. For instance, before Thursday he had only faced Brewers reliever Josh Hader twice, and it showed. Goldschmidt swung almost helplessly at three straight fastballs in the eighth.MORE: Reds have new energy that could liven up NL CentralBut Goldschmidt will have years to learn the division, thanks to a contract extension that was completed a week before the season started. When the Cardinals traded for him, he had one year left on his current contract, which could have meant that his tenure in St. Louis would be short. Goldschmidt insisted that this would not have been a distraction during the 2019 season had an extension not been reached, but he was still glad to get it done.“One more thing that won’t be on my mind,” Goldschmidt said. “It’s something you know is going to come up, it’s a part of being a major league baseball player. Having that done is good.” MILWAUKEE — Almost a year ago, Paul Goldschmidt was in St. Louis for the Cardinals’ season home opener. He remembers the jubilant atmosphere and the bit of awe that he felt, even as a member of the opposing team, watching as the Cardinals celebrated the history of their franchise.Now, at the dawn of the 2019 season and only one official game with his new team under his belt, Goldschmidt is still getting used to the new uniform he’s putting on and all the history comes with it.last_img read more

Anhydrous leak contained at Mason City co-op

first_imgMASON CITY — An anhydrous ammonia leak has been contained at a co-op on Mason City’s south side.Emergency authorities were called to the Five Star Co-op at about 9:30 Tuesday morning after an 80-thousand gallon anhydrous ammonia tank was hit and a valve was sheared, causing a release of the gas.Five Star general manager Ken Smith says they immediately contacted first responders and authorities as their foremost concern was for the safety of the community and their employees. The Mason City Recycling Center and the Cartersville Elevator were evacuated but no homes in the area adjacent to the co-op were impacted.A hazmat team from the Mason City Fire Department was able to install a new valve and control the leak shortly before 4 o’clock yesterday afternoon. Smith says they continue to work at the direction of local authorities but the tank is secured, and that no injuries were reported.Exposure to anhydrous ammonia can cause irritations to the eyes, nose and throat, as well as cause breathing difficulties and chest pain.last_img read more

Only three trafficking arrests on Super Bowl week, FBI says

first_imgIt could be possible the number of arrests will change. One anti-trafficking advocate said it was quote, “disappointing” that only three arrests were made. According to the F.B.I, only three people were charged with sex trafficking in the week leading up to the Super Bowl in Miami.Officials say they arrested a man and a woman from Miami, and a Connecticut man on charges of trafficking women.The FBI also says law enforcement located four missing young women who were trafficking victims.Last year, reports state that there were 6o arrests for Super Bowl week in Atlanta.Leading up to Super Bowl week there was a lot of attention brought to trafficking, but the agency won’t confirm if that is why the numbers are so low.Florida Lt.

Kobe still being pursued for International League

first_imgWhile the prospects of a normal tipoff to the National Basketball Association season continue to slip away, league stars are still being pursued. Rumors have swirled all summer around the possibility of Los Angeles Lakers star forward Kobe Bryant traveling east to an Italian League team, Virtus Bologna and it now appears the club has put the talks into fast forward. The Italian club has offered Bryant between $1 million and $2 million dollars to play in just one exhibition game according to various Italian reports quoted by ESPN.Several league superstars have openly flirted with the idea of playing abroad through the media such as Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard, New Orleans Hornets guard Chris Paul, New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony and Memphis Grizzlies forward Rudy Gay. Bryant’s childhood link to Italy—where he lived while his father played Italian basketball—makes him a natural candidate to return but to snag a marquee name like of Bryant apparently requires a lot more work, and patience.last_img read more

Got Windows Phone 7? Microsoft’s Tracking You Too

first_imgRole of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement It might be time to state the obvious: If you have a smartphone in your pocket, someone knows where you are, right now. First, we found out that Apple, maker of the uber-popular iPhone and iPad, has been storing and tracking location data on its devices for more than a year now. Next, we learned that Google, the company that likely knows what you’ll be having for dinner before you do, was also in on the fun. Now, it looks like Microsoft has been collection location data on devices running the Windows Phone 7 mobile operating system. Surprise!Concerns over location-tracking smartphones first surfaced last week when data scientists Alasdair Allan and Pete Warden announced that they had come across a file on Apple devices running iOS 4.0 or later, which appeared to store historical location data for the past year. Not only that, but these devices were sending this data back to Apple twice a day. Researchers and hackers alike quickly began poking around and found that Google was also tracking location on its Android mobile operating system. By comparison, however, Android does not store the data locally, instead sending only recent location data back to servers.Now, CNET’s Declan McCullagh has reported that “Windows Phone 7, supported by manufacturers including Dell, HTC, LG, Nokia, and Samsung, transmits to Microsoft a miniature data dump including a unique device ID, details about nearby Wi-Fi networks, and the phone’s GPS-derived exact latitude and longitude.”According to the article, Windows Phone 7 sends small data packets back to the server, but does not store anything locally on the device. Unlike the rest, iOS devices store the data locally (and unencrypted, unless you tell iTunes to encrypt your backup), which Apple insider John Gruber speculates is simply an oversight or a bug by Apple. Either way, it’s grossly insecure.With Android, iOS and Windows Phone 7 all joining in on the location tracking, storing, recording fun, we’re just left with Nokia Symbian and RIM, which The Guardian has inquired with, but so far hasn’t posted a response.Either way, we’re thinking it’s safe to say – if you are carrying a device with a GPS chip in your pocket, put on your tinfoil hat because you, my friend, are being tracked.
