Beyond the high level of playing throughout, the band welcomed a special guest, saxophonist LeRoi Moore, during the second set for some musical antics: Per, “The jam with LeRoi included a segment where he played two saxes, Trey played three guitars, Mike played two basses and the Cracklin’ Rosie cymbals, Fish had four drumsticks and Page was lying across his keyboards playing as many as possible.”Tuesday’s eighth episode of Dinner and a Movie follows the 8/31/12 “F— You Face” show, the 7/27/14 Merriweather “Tweezerfest”, the 7/25/17’s Baker’s Dozen “Jam-Filled” night, Magnaball night two (8/22/15), last year’s first night at Mohegan Sun (7/19/19), the first night of the band’s 2016 Halloween run in Las Vegas (10/28/16), the final night of 2017’s Mexican destination event (1/15/17), and the opening night of their 2018 Alpharetta run (8/3/18).For the “dinner” portion of the festivities, Trey Anastasio shared three recipes of Italian comfort food from Scott Tacinelli & Angie Rito, husband-and-wife chefs and co-owners of Don Angie, located in New York City’s West Village. As the band notes in their announcement, “Tacinelli and Rito were named among Zagat’s 13 Under-the-Radar Chefs to Watch in NYC in 2017, New York’s Rising Star Chefs in 2019, and they earned James Beard Award nominations for Best Chef New York State in 2019 and 2020.

In a saute pan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add in garlic and salt and cook until lightly toasted, about 2 minutes. Add in anchovies, pepper, and oregano and cook another minute longer. Remove from heat and set aside. In a mixing bowl, combine the cooked garlic mixture with bread crumbs, ricotta, pecorino, parmesan, chopped cherry peppers, 2 tablespoons parsley, and egg by hand until well incorporated.Using a small knife, cut the top of the pepper off just below the stem. With your finger or a small spoon, remove as much of the seeds and ribs that you can without breaking the pepper. Using your fingers, carefully push the stuffing mixture into the pepper, pushing gently to get it all the way to the end of the pepper. Repeat with all peppers.In a medium heavy-bottomed saute pan or cast iron skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil over medium heat. Add the peppers and cook, turning occasionally, until golden brown on all sides, 6 to 8 minutes. Add ¼ cup of water to the pan or skillet along with the lemon juice. Place in the oven and bake until peppers are completely soft and cooked through, and the filling is slightly crispy on exposed parts, about 15 minutes. Top with remaining chopped 1 tablespoon chopped parsley and olive oil and serve immediately.Pasta e Fagioli with Black Eyed Peas & Collard GreensMakes about 10 cups, serves 6 to 8¼ pound thinly sliced prosciutto, chopped finely (optional)1 cup extra virgin olive oil½ bunch collard greens (about 9 leaves)6 scallions, sliced thinly, whites and greens separated7 garlic cloves, chopped finely1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes2 tablespoons kosher salt1 ½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepperZest of one lemon¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice1 1/2 cups cooked black eyed peas or 1 1/2 cups canned (from one 15.5-ounce can), drained and rinsed8 cups no-sodium chicken stock1 ½ cups uncooked ditalini pastaPinch of sugar¾ cup grated parmesan, plus ¼ cup for toppingRemove the inner stem from collards and discard. Roll the leaves into a tube and chop them into 2-inch strips. Set aside.In a large pot over medium heat, combine olive oil and prosciutto, if using. Cook until the prosciutto is slightly fried and its fat has rendered, about 3 minutes. (If not using prosciutto, skip this step.) Add the garlic, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Stir well to combine. Continue cooking over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the garlic is fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the scallion whites and cook until they have wilted, about 2 minutes.Add the collard greens, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Continue cooking over medium heat, stirring often, until greens are wilted, 12 to 15 minutes. Add the beans and stock. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then lower heat to maintain a simmer. Simmer for 10 minutes, then add the pasta. Cook until pasta is soft, about 8 minutes.Stir in sugar, scallion greens, and ¾ cup parmesan and serve immediately, topping with the remaining cheese.Polenta Snickerdoodle CookiesMakes about 12-14 cookies1 cup (½ pound) unsalted butter, at room temperature1 ½ cups plus 1/2 cup sugar2 eggs2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract2 teaspoons kosher salt1 ½ cups all-purpose flour1¼ cup plus 1 tablespoon instant polenta1 ½ teaspoon cream of tartar½ teaspoon baking soda3 tablespoons ground cinnamon¼ teaspoon cayenneIn the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine the butter and 1 1/2 cups of the sugar.

One by one, roll each ball in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper (or a silicone mat) sprayed with nonstick cooking spray and place 6-7 cookies on each, leaving lots of room between them. Gently press down on each cookie with the palm of your hand to flatten them.Bake until just golden brown around the edges, 10-12 minutes.

Feds propose ban on rope-swinging from Utah arches

first_imgSALT LAKE CITY | Federal officials have proposed a two-year ban on rope-swinging from iconic Utah arches and other high-flying activities at two popular landmarks that have led to deaths and injuries witnessed by visitors flocking to the sites for peaceful reflection.The Bureau of Land Management says rope activities at Corona Arch and Gemini Bridges near Moab can disturb other people in easily accessible hiking areas that each receive 40,000 or more visitors a year.People often shout or scream while they swing, and in one case, a group authorized to celebrate Passover under the Corona Arch was interrupted by rope swingers above, according to a BLM report released Monday.Though the number of people who participate in the extreme activity is thought to be small, it’s become a regular occurrence and can be dangerous. A West Jordan man, 22-year-old Kyle Lee Stocking, died at Corona Arch last year after leaving too much slack in his rope. A 25-year-old New Yorker was critically injured in May.Those accidents happened in front of visitors, including children, the report says. Another rope swinger, 32-year-old Adam Jason Weber, was also killed last year swinging from Day Canyon, about 7 miles west of Moab.The pendulum-style sport is relatively new, and started to take off at Corona after a high-adrenaline video was posted to YouTube titled “World’s Largest Rope Swing” two years ago. That video has gotten more than 2 million views.“We have seen the popularity of some roped activities skyrocket in recent years,” said BLM Utah spokeswoman Megan Crandall.Signs of wear are also starting to show, including bolts bored into the rock and rope scars at both Corona and Gemini Bridges, a set of two rock spans and the head of a side canyon.The proposed ban would also affect other rope activities. That includes highlining, or balancing on taunt ropes between the two rims of the canyon, as well as ziplining and rappelling, all of which are popular at Gemini Bridges.Attempts to contact people who rope-swing in the area weren’t successful Tuesday, but Moab-based climbing guide Evan Howes said in June that the area has seen an “explosion” in extreme-sports adventurers, rendering it “Disneyland-esque.”“I don’t envy the position the BLM is in,” Howes said. “They’re trying to preserve the experience for some people, and that means limiting it for others.”The BLM is accepting written and emailed comments from the public through Sept. 25. The agency hasn’t set a deadline for a decision on the ban or when it might go into effect if it is approved.If restrictions are put in place, they would affect some 32 acres around Corona Arch, including Bowtie Arch, and about 10 acres near Gemini Bridges.Rope activities wouldn’t be restricted elsewhere.“That’s one of the things that makes Moab so unique, it’s a great place for kids, and for high-adrenaline, more extreme activities, there’s a place to do that,” Crandall said. The two-year period is designed to let the agency study the issue and make a decision on possible permanent restrictions.last_img read more

Chatham-Kent looking at 311 for customer service

first_imgChatham-Kent will be moving forward in implementing a 311 number to improve customer service.The inspiration for bringing in 311 is its ease of use for Chatham-Kent residents, who will simply have to dial a simple three-digit telephone number for specific situations instead of calling the current municipal number.When implemented, 311 will be a non-emergency telephone number that residents can use to contact Chatham-Kent’s customer service call centre to find information about municipal services, make complaints or report problems such as graffiti or road damage.Chatham-Kent councillors approved a motion at their recent council meeting that directed administration to move ahead with the switch to 311.Leanne Segeren-Swayze, Chatham-Kent’s director of customer service, said the implementation of the service would not have a lot of costs, other than staff time.The change to 311 is the first step in calling the municipality is seen as an opportunity to improve and expand customer options to request service, information or report a concern.Chatham-Kent explored switching to 311 as a service option in 2005 but, due to the cost of close to a million dollars, the idea was not feasible at the time.Segeren-Swayze said there have been many changes to telephone service providers and technology over the past few years, which make it possible to make the switch to 311 to route calls without it being an administrative high cost.“It’s essentially zero cost,” Segeren-Swayze said.It’s expected it will take over a year to implement the 311 system, as Chatham-Kent has to contact and consult neighbouring municipalities, such as Walpole Island and St. Clair Township, to get permission and make agreements about routing calls because the Bell boundary is not the same as municipal boundaries.“Our infrastructure is already in place with our call-centre software, so we’re ahead of the game in terms of training and staff preparation for this service. It would be a very easy implementation,” Segeren-Swayze said to council.South Kent Coun. Trevor Thompson said he couldn’t support implementing the 311 service due to the lack of community engagement about the possible implementation.“There are a lot of important questions that still need to be answered and a lot of important feedback from the people of this municipality,” Thompson said, noting that everyone knows the current number.The current number wouldn’t go away, as the 311 number would route all calls to the 519-360-1998 number.Both London and Windsor have the 311 service.Chatham-Kent is also in the process of developing and implementing options for customers to text the municipal customer service team, as well as website options for self-reporting and service requests by year-end.During the 2019 budget deliberations, council approved the funding to upgrade the existing citizen request system, which will already expand the options for the self-reporting and logging on the municipal website.Chatham-Kent is also exploring the options of smartphone apps for simplified customer access. The implementation of 311 would be another option for customers to access Chatham-Kent’s customer service team.last_img read more

State-of-art port control centre opens in Cape Town

first_img2 May 2014South Africa’s first maritime port of entry control centre represents a milestone in the country’s journey to secure, modernise and control its borders, Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan said at the opening of the centre at Cowrie Port in Cape Town harbour on Friday.The centre puts all the government departments and agencies involved in immigration and border control under one roof. These include the departments of home affairs, health, agriculture and fisheries, the SA Police Service (border police and crime intelligence), and the SA Revenue Service (customs).The state-of-the-art centre would not only improve security and immigration issues, but would also serve to enhance trade and South Africa’s status as a logistical gateway to Africa, Gordhan said.TradeThe rationale behind the centre was in line with the National Development Plan, the minister said. Among other things, the NDP aims to stimulate growth by lowering the cost of doing business in South Africa, improving the country’s competitiveness and exports, and linking local products with other emerging markets.Gordhan said the fast-growing markets of Africa represented important new markets, and the NDP was committed to increasing South Africa’s trade with its regional neighbours from 15% to 30%.‘Complex borders’Home Affairs Minister Naledi Pandor, also speaking at Friday’s opening, said the centre had been designed “to accommodate in one spot not only customs, excise and immigration, but also health, safety and intelligence.“Ports are complex borders to manage. Cowrie Place will provide the space and facilities to manage passengers and cargoes more efficiently than before.”Pandor said the government hoped to establish a border management agency by the end of 2016, taking advantage of the lessons learnt from Cowrie Place.A flagship feature of Cowrie Place is the co-ordination monitoring centre, where the data and information will be fed, assimilated and made available to all government department and agencies involved in the maritime border management.“For the bona fide tourist or member of the trade community, this will mean better service,” Gordhan said. “For those who intend to challenge the laws of our country, be warned, as we intend to raise the bar of compliance by an order of magnitude.”Important portCape Town’s port is oldest in South Africa, but despite changes to its maritime culture brought by air travel and containerisation, it is still an important point of entry.The port processes more than 870 000 containers as well as nearly 730 000 tons of dry bulk per annum, Pandor said.A total of 6 173 commercial vessels and 55 passenger vessels entered and/or left the port in 2013, while more than 62 000 people entered and/or departed from Cape Town harbour.Pandor said E-berth at the harbour would be developed into a fully fledged passenger liner terminal to complement Cowrie Place.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

ESPN’s Bill Simmons Rips Dick Vitale, Calls Syracuse’s Jim Boeheim A “Disgraced College Coach”

first_imgBill Simmons in the Grantland studio.Jim Boeheim held a press conference this morning following the news that he will be retiring as Syracuse’s men’s basketball coach in three years. The decision to retire comes roughly two weeks after the NCAA hammered the Orange with vacated wins, scholarship reductions and a nine-game suspension for the 70-year-old coach. After the press conference, ESPN college basketball analyst Dick Vitale went on SportsCenter. Vitale, who is notorious for being unable to criticize elite coaches, said the only thing Boeheim did wrong was putting his trust in the wrong people. “Jim Boeheim didn’t cheat. He’s guilty of one thing, trust,” Vitale said.This seems to irk ESPN’s Bill Simmons the wrong way, as he ripped Vitale and Boeheim with a series of tweets. The Jim Boeheim situation is high comedy. “I’m sorry we cheated so many times… as a punishment, I’m retiring 3 years from now.”— Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) March 19, 2015You know what high school hoop stars love more than anything? A disgraced college coach in 3-year limbo. Should work out great for Cuse.— Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) March 19, 2015Dick Vitale just cleared it up for us – Jim Boeheim is NOT a cheater. He just trusted the wrong people. Why didn’t Nixon use this defense?— Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) March 19, 2015Don’t get suspended, Bill.last_img read more
