Buddy Guy Invites 13-Year-Old Brandon ‘Taz’ Niederauer To Play With Him In NYC [Watch]

first_imgOn Wednesday, July 20th, 2016, Buddy Guy performed at The Theater at Madison Square Garden, with support from Jeff Beck. Young guitarist Brandon “Taz” Niederauer was in the crowd, taking a night off from his School of Rock The Musical gig, and enjoying the evening with two of his favorite musicians. By this point, Niederauer had played with the majority of his idols, from Gregg Allman to Warren Haynes to George Clinton to Gary Clark Jr., among others, though he had never previously played with Buddy Guy.As Buddy roamed the audience on a wireless microphone, as he customarily does at his shows, he passed by the teenage guitar phenom, handed him a guitar pick, and said “strum,” to which Niederauer responded, “I can play.” The next thing you know, ten minutes later, Taz was up on the stage, strapped into one of Buddy guitars and playing the blues alongside one of the greatest living legends of our time as he looked on, commenting about Taz’s chops with amazement.As we celebrate Buddy Guy’s 82nd birthday today, watch the blues elder statesman and the talented young prodigy trade melodies in the video below:Buddy Guy Jams with Brandon “Taz” Niederauer – 7/20/16[Video: Rock, Roots, & Blues – Live!]Brandon “Taz” Niederauer will be paying tribute to some of his biggest influences, including Col. Bruce Hampton, Butch Trucks and Gregg Allman during a very special performance at Brooklyn Comes Alive, set to take place at three fan-favorite venues in Williamsburg, Brooklyn on September 29th, 2018. For his tribute to mentors lost, Taz has recruited a roster of living legends including The Meters bassist George Porter Jr., Lettuce guitarist Adam “Shmeeans” Smirnoff, Aquarium Rescue Unit drummer Jeff Sipe, Gregg Allman Band organist Peter Levin, and former American Idol contestant Elise Testone, who sings with him in his touring solo band.To see a full list of the unique tributes, super jams, and artist passion projects on deck for Brooklyn Comes Alive 2018, or to purchase your tickets now, head to the event’s website.last_img read more

 

Student government offers city bus tour

first_imgTo counteract students’ tendency to stay within the Notre Dame campus “bubble,” student government is offering a bus tour of South Bend.The bus tour, which has been offered for the past five years, will leave from the flagpole between the Joyce Center and the stadium at 5 p.m. Monday.The tour is meant to provide students an opportunity to see the city of South Bend as more than just home to the University.Junior Claire Sokas, chair of student government’s Community Outreach Committee, said students, especially freshmen, have much to gain from becoming better acquainted with the community outside the campus.“It will give them a better idea of the opportunities and activities off campus,” Sokas said. “I hope it gets them to get off campus a lot more than I did my freshman year.”Transpo, South Bend’s bus service, provided the buses and collaborated with student government in planning the event.“I hope it helps [students] realize how easy it is to get off campus with Transpo, and how many things there are to do, especially in downtown South Bend which is really thriving,” Sokas said.The bus tour will highlight the city’s shopping and dining areas — from the stores and restaurants along the campus’s perimeter at Eddy Street Commons to those at the center of downtown South Bend.The tour will stop downtown at the Morris Plaza for pizza and a brief presentation with Mayor Stephen Luecke before returning to campus, Sokas said.While incoming freshmen are especially encouraged to take advantage of the bus tour, all students are welcome to take part, and there should be enough space on the buses to accommodate all interested students.“The tour is open to anyone, but geared towards freshmen,” Sokas said. “Last year’s turnout was really good, so we’re hoping this year’s is too.”There will be a table set up at Domerfest tonight where freshmen can get more information about the tour.The tour is expected to take less than two hours and students can expect to be back on campus before 7 p.m. Monday.last_img read more

Saving Trees.

first_imgTrees Struggle to Survive For a tree to survive a dry period, it needs about 2 gallons of water per day for every inch of trunk diameter (measured at 4.5 feet above the ground). For example, a 10-inch diameter tree would need 20 gallons of water per day. Distribute this amount of water under the crown of the tree. Provide drainage with the watering, as trees don’t survive long in stagnant soils. Apply survival-level water every three days when it hasn’t rained to recharge the soil water. Don’t water daily, especially on heavy soils. Some excessively well-drained soils may need more frequent watering. Apply water in the evening to minimize evaporation loss. For more information on trees, water and drought, see the University of Georgia School of Forest Resources Drought Information Site at www.forestry.uga.edu/efr and the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences drought site at www.griffin.peachnet.edu/caes/drought/.last_img read more

Chelsea close in on £30m Arsenal transfer target Gabriel Magalhaes

first_imgChelsea are stealing a march on Arsenal in the race to sign Gabriel from Lille (Picture: Getty)Chelsea have stolen a march on Arsenal in the race to sign Lille defender Gabriel Magalhaes.The Brazil youth international impressed against Frank Lampard’s side during the group stages of this season’s Champions League and is valued at around £30million by the Ligue 1 club.Lampard has afforded regular opportunities to Andreas Christensen, Kurt Zouma, Antonio Rudiger and Fikayo Tomori this season, but has struggled to settle on a regular combination at the heart of his defence. Chelsea were banned from making any new signings last summer but after their punishment was halved by the Court of Arbitration for Sport they have already made progress with rebuilding their squad ahead of next season.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTHakim Ziyech will join from Ajax, and Eurosport claim a deal for 22-year-old Gabriel is almost complete. Arsenal had been heavily linked with the centre-half and had hoped their strong relationship with Lille following the signing of Nicolas Pepe would stand them in good stead.Mikel Arteta was able to strengthen his defence in January with the loan signings of Pablo Mari and Cedric Soares. Arsenal have the option to make both deals permanent in the summer but the futures of Shkodran Mustafi and Sokratis Papastathopoulos remain uncertain.Mustafi’s form has improved markedly since Arteta’s appointment as Unai Emery’s permanent successor, but earlier this week admitted he was far from confident he would be offered a new deal.‘I’ve played more regularly under Mikel Arteta, also in the Premier League. That has really helped me. I feel very good. I understand his style of football, how he likes to play, that really fits me,’ he told Sky in Germany.

UK stewardship watchdog floats ‘section 172’ for asset managers

first_imgIn its suggested revised form, the corporate governance code would acknowledge the importance of boards considering the way their companies interact with the workforce, customers, suppliers and wider stakeholders. Should the Stewardship Code more explicitly refer to ESG factors and broader social impact? If so, how should these be integrated and are there any specific areas of focus that should be addressed? The FRC noted there had been more focus on section 172 duties as part of recent corporate governance reform discussions. The accounting watchdog said it had been suggested that, if boards were to be required to report on the way in which they have carried out these duties, investors should also be encouraged to monitor and engage on these issues. Luke Hildyard, PLSALuke Hildyard, policy lead for stewardship and corporate governance at the pension fund trade body, said: “Despite the reduced length, the proposed [Corporate Governance Code] contains many positive new measures, particularly the recognition of the importance of corporate culture and employee voice. However, monitoring and enforcement of these provisions will be critical. PLSA research found that most companies already pay lip service to these issues in annual reports, but provide little concrete data demonstrating the strength of their relations with the workforce. “The proposals to require long-term incentive plans to be at least five years in length is welcome and will accelerate existing progress in this direction. However, the changes are unlikely to reduce levels of executive pay or address societal concern about gaps between executives and the wider workforce.” The Investment AssociationAndrew Ninian, director of corporate governance at the asset management industry body, said: “The launch of the revised UK Corporate Governance Code is a welcome step in the evolution of our corporate governance system. The government’s Green Paper [released in November 2016] set out important challenges to the UK corporate governance system, particularly on stakeholder voice and executive pay. It is important that the governance code responds to these challenges so that the UK remains globally competitive and that investor stewardship continues as a key tenet.”ShareActionBethan Livesey, head of policy at the responsible investment campaign organisation, said: “The FRC shows that it is willing to amend the Corporate Governance and Stewardship Codes to ensure that both can help engender trust and long-termism in business. The onus is now on the corporate and investment sectors to press the FRC to be ambitious in taking this agenda forward to build a sustainable UK economy.” The UK’s Financial Reporting Council (FRC) has set out an initial line of inquiry about the future of the country’s Stewardship Code, including a focus on the roles of different organisations in the investment chain.  Comments and questions relating to responsible investment, long-term investment, sustainability, and environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors pervaded the stewardship section of the watchdog’s consultation document regarding the UK Corporate Governance Code.Within the consultation, the FRC asked respondents whether the Stewardship Code should set out expectations for asset managers to consider a wider group of stakeholders as part of their engagement.This would reflect the aim of section 172 of the Companies Act, according to which a director of a company is required to act in the way s/he considers, in good faith, would be most likely to promote the success of the company for the benefit of its members as a whole, and in doing so have regard to a range of matters.center_img The FRC does not have a mandate to impose duties on asset managers – this falls under the remit of the Financial Conduct Authority – but said it believed “a greater focus on how investors assist companies to build long-term success would be helpful”.It was therefore seeking views about how this could be better reflected in the Stewardship Code, “including through the use of a ‘section 172’ for asset managers”.The FRC asked:How could an investor’s role in building a company’s long-term success be further encouraged through the Stewardship Code?Would it be appropriate to incorporate ‘wider stakeholders’ into the areas of suggested focus for monitoring and engagement by investors? Should the Stewardship Code more explicitly refer to ESG factors and broader social impact? If so, how should these be integrated and are there any specific areas of focus that should be addressed? The watchdog’s view was that the Stewardship Code should not only be relevant for ESG decision-making, but it said it was interested in views about how it could be amended to refer more effectively to ESG factors and integration.It has also asked whether the stewardship code should be amended to ask investors to consider company performance and reporting on adapting to climate change – a suggestion made by the UK Committee on Climate Change in June – and whether board and executive pipeline diversity should be included as an explicit expectation of investor engagement.The FRC also called for views on whether the code should support disclosure of a manager’s approach to directed voting in pooled funds, given that some asset owners have questioned their ability to do so.As signatories to the current Stewardship Code, asset managers, asset owners and service providers are expected to provide a public statement about their approach to stewardship, using the code as a framework. The FRC is considering revising the code to provide more specific expectations about best practice more in line with the ‘comply or explain’ format of the corporate governance code.It also asked for views on the idea of separate codes for different signatory categories, either by type of organisation or according to whether they invest directly or indirectly.The FRC also noted that some signatories “consider themselves responsible investors, as opposed to responsible shareholders” and that it was therefore interested in how it could addressed the fact that investors view their responsibilities in different ways.A detailed consultation on specific changes to the stewardship code is slated for late 2018.Trimmed corp gov code ’about purpose’ The watchdog today also launched a formal consultation on changes to the UK’s Corporate Governance Code.The FRC said changes would make the code “shorter and sharper” – down from around 11,000 words to under 5,000, the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association noted.The accounting body said the revised code would focus “on the importance of long-term success and sustainability”, while addressing “issues of public trust in business” and ensuring the attractiveness of the UK post-Brexit.The corporate governance consultation closes on 28 February 2018.Industry reactionsThe Pensions and Lifetime Savings Associationlast_img read more
