The Grateful Dead Played A 32-Minute “The Other One” On This Day In 1972

first_img1972 was a banner year for the Grateful Dead, as the band was at the peak of their ability to combine psychedelic jamming with legitimate and impressive songwriting. The shows they were playing throughout that whole year were truly remarkable, including the set from the Baltimore Civic Center on this day 45 years ago.The whole show rips from front to back, but the stand-out moment is certainly the 32:02 written next to “The Other One.” This is an out-of-this-world celebration of psychedelia, and we’re all invited along to ride the bus. It’s times like these that we’re thankful for tapers like Carly Wolfson and the DeadLists Project, enabling us to listen to full audio from what was just another night on the road, so many years ago.Enjoy the full stream, embedded below.last_img read more

Antigua in Talks With United States to Increase Airlifts Between Countries

first_imgST. JOHN’S, Antigua, CMC – Tourism Minister, Charles Fernandez, remained buoyed at the prospect of increased airlift from the United States to Antigua following a week of meeting and negotiations with representatives of US-based airlines.“We had a very hectic road trip to meet with executives of four major US carriers to present Antigua and Barbuda’s growth and hotel rooms. We are looking towards another record-breaking year of arrivals to Antigua and Barbuda,” said Fernandez, adding “our aim is to convince them that Antigua and Barbuda is not only expanding but also improving its product.“This has been one of the most successful months in airlift for us this year!  The overall feedback from our airline partners, this year, is that they have seen strong demand for our product, particularly during the summer months, largely as a result of the over 500 rooms that we have added within the last few months; and our robust summer campaign #WhatCoolLooksLike”, he said.Fernandez said that it was encouraging news for Antigua and Barbuda coming on the recent announcement by Virgin Atlantic to also add an additional daily flight to the destination this winter from the United Kingdom; and British Airways offering daily service year-round starting summer 2020.“This is a ringing endorsement and clear confidence in Antigua and Barbuda, as a preferred destination of choice by our airline partners” said Fernandez.Tourism officials said a series of successful presentations were made to the airline partners, with a detailed update given on the improved airport infrastructure, recent growth within the destination’s room stock, in addition to more planned development with over 2,000 new hotel rooms on schedule to be ready in the next two years.Meetings were also held with United Airlines and Southwest to explore all opportunities for the destination, in particular, the new US gateways of Houston, Dallas, Fort Lauderdale, and Chicago.Chief executive officer of the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority, Colin C. James said he was pleased with the feedback from the airline partners who welcomed the face-to-face meetings.“The two new additional Jet Blue flights, each 150 seats per flight, will have the airline flying to Antigua on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.  The increase in this carrier’s capacity will be a welcome boost for our weddings and honeymoon market.“It will ensure that adequate airlift is available to support the marketing efforts of both the Tourism Authority and our hotels ahead of the busy Thanksgiving holiday in the United States, which signals the start of the winter season,” said James.The meeting with American Airlines also resulted with agreement on the resumption of the second daily flight from Miami on December 18th.last_img read more

City League Roundup…Perry knocks off Allderdice in final seconds

first_img“Allderdice is a big, strong team,” Perry head coach Marco Corona said. “They played into our strengths as we are a quicker and faster team. We endured and persevered throughout and that is the main thing that led us to a win.”The Dragons were led by Ishmail Swain with 14 points and 8 rebounds. Justin Dobbs and Ben Mickens each added 12 points. “Our slogan on this team is “HAWK-D,” said Allderdice head coach Andre McDonald. “One thing that I can complement our team on is our aggressive intensity on defense and I just like their hard work on each transition. But my hat goes off to Perry. They played like the defending champs that they are.”Perry was down by 10 at the beginning of the fourth quarter before they mounted a comeback led by Harrington. Their junior point guard, Marcus Smith, was slowed down by back spasms and as a result, was held scoreless. He is among the team leaders in scoring this season, averaging more than 17 points a game.Oliver 55, Gateway 45The Bears took care of business against quad-A giant Gateway Jan. 31 at the Pittsburgh Basketball Classic on the campus of Robert Morris University. They have established themselves as one of the teams to beat in the City as they hold the second-best overall and conference records in the league.“We were down two at the half and we wanted to come out and step up things in the second half,” said Oliver head coach Carey White. “That’s what we did. We came out in that second half and started executing. Our defense started taking over and we started to force them into making bad decisions on offense.”Oliver’s senior guard Evan Schell led the way for the Bears with 26 points, including a game-high 7  from behind the arc. Delvon Murray helped the cause with 12 and Phil Ferguson added 11.They made 10 of 13 foul shots in the game, all coming in the fourth quarter.“When it came down to it, we were able to hit the big shots,” said White. “I can’t say enough about our team’s confidence going down the stretch, which makes me excited about what I saw out there.”Craig Banks and Tyler Scott each had 11 points to lead Gateway.Other results:Jan. 26Allderdice 62, Schenley 50Top scorers: (S) Brandon Johnson, 13; Walter Tyler, 12; (A) Justin Dobbs, 16; Brandon McClester, 15; Ben Mickens, 14Carrick 53, Peabody 41Top scorers: (P) Adeneyi Oshoko, 9; (C) Jordan Wilson, 17; Travis Lewis, 13; Rasheed McKamey, 12.Oliver 70, Langley 40Top scorers: (O) Evan Schell, 15; Phil Ferguson, 12; (L) Ronald Carson, 9; Jason McGinnis, 9.Perry 71, Brashear 62Top scorers: (P) Daryl Harrington, 26; Marcus Smith, 16; (B) Henri Chatman, 21; Todd Brown, 15; Elijah Peterson, 13Jan. 29Schenley 92, Westinghouse 59Top scorers: (W) Marcus Falls, 29; Isaiah Naylor, 12; (S) Brandon Johnson, 31; Alonzo Murphy, 14; Camerin Nesbit, 12; Arthur Smith, 12; Mike Robinson, 10Peabody 64, Brashear 53High scorers (B) Henri Chatman, 30; (P) Sharod Green, 17; Adeneyi Oshoko, 16; Marzell Baskins, 10; Rudy Freeman, 10Boys StandingsTeam     Conf.     OverallPerry     10-0        14-1Oliver      8-2        11-4Allderdice      7-3        10-5Peabody      5-5        5-10Westinghouse      4-6        7-9Carrick      4-6        7-9Schenley      4-6        6-9Brashear      2-8        2-13Langley      0-9        0-14Upcoming GamesFeb. 53:15 p.m., Carrick at Perry7:30 p.m., Brashear at Schenley, Allderdice at Westinghouse, Langley at PeabodyWestinghouse girls stillholding on strongAs for the girls, the Lady Bulldogs of Westinghouse are still holding their own and are looking to be a prime target for defeat in the league, going down the stretch.
