Oxford’s Varsity night-mare

first_imgControversy has arisen over the result of the recent Equestrian Varsity Match, with the Oxford team accused of altering the points system in their favour.The match, which is widely considered to be one of the most prestigious equestrian events of the year, took place on Thursday 8th March.At the time, the Cambridge team were ruled to have beaten Oxford after scoring highly in the dressage and show jumping and left the competition with medals and in jubilant spirits.However, on returning home, they were greeted with an email informing them that owing to a change in the scoring, they were no longer the victors, and that the Oxford team had actually won by a single point.In equestrian competitions it is usual for the home team, which was Oxford on this occasion, to decide upon the weightings for the scores each of the events. However the change in result was so drastic that the Cambridge team appealed to the Oxford Sports Federation and requested that the event be reviewed.After further consideration from the Federation, the win was instead awarded to the Cambridge team.A statement from the Oxford Sport’s Federation explained that the confusion was “understandable” as “the Equestrian Varsity Match, along with most Equestrian events has a complicated scoring system, which has been amended several times in recent years.”They further explained that “some confusion” existed with regards to the scoring system which “couldn’t be cleared up on the day” as the Cambridge team were forced to leave “very soon after the event.”They added that a discussion then ensued between the two captains, and it was decided that “as announced at the match, Cambridge were the overall winners.” Both captains agreed to devise a “definitive written scoring system” to prevent similar confusion in future years.Despite this, several Cambridge players expressed a degree of frustration regarding the event. The Cambridge team captain, Charlie Flammiger, told the Cambridge student paper, the Tab, that “we played by their rules, and won by their rules. Like any other sport they can’t be changed after the event”. Flammiger admitted that the problem had been resolved but commented that “it’s a shame that the competition was soured by the confusion.”Several Cambridge students claim to be angered by the confusion. A first-year student commented, “Oxford’s behaviour is awful sportsmanship and very childish; they should stick to the original scoring method and accept that the light blues won.”Another member of the riding team described Oxford’s actions as “outrageously poor sportsmanship” and congratulated the Cambridge team on winning despite the fact that “the odds were stacked against us”.However, Jack Gallagher, a first-year studying French and Arabic at Oxford commented, “Let’s be clear – I don’t like horses and I don’t like Tabs. Both are quite frankly jumped up beasts of burden. However in this case there seems to have been genuine confusion by the Oxford side. Any dispute they had should have been settled at the time; claiming victory does smack of bad sportsmanship. But we mustn’t let the rivalry that makes varsity matches so exciting lead us into accusations of cheating”.last_img read more

L4LM Staff Picks: Our Favorite Albums Of 2018

first_imgAs the year comes to a close, it’s time to look back at the wild ride and whirlwind that was 2018. For this year’s Live For Live Music Staff Picks, we’ll be reliving some of our favorite musical moments, events, and releases of the past year. Today, we’re revisiting our staff’s favorite albums of 2018. Enjoy!Anderson .Paak – OxnardMulti-talented west coast hip-hop artist Anderson .Paak released his highly anticipated new studio album, Oxnard, in November via Aftermath/12 Tone Music Group/Atlantic Records. The follow-up to 2016’s multi-Grammy-nominated Malibu, the fourteen-track record marks Anderson .Paak’s first LP on Aftermath Entertainment, the imprint founded by Oxnard‘s executive producer, Dr. Dre.Anderson .Paak worked with Dre on the entirety of the project, bringing in an insane group of guests to collaborate on the record including rappers Kendrick Lamar (the collaboration earned a Grammy nomination for ‘Best Rap Performance’), Pusha-T, J. Cole, Snoop Dogg, Q-Tip, and BJ the Chicago Kid, as well as vocalists Kadhja Bonet, Norelle, Cocoa Sarai, and more. MF DOOM and Freddie Gibbs producer Madlib also participated in the production of the album. Listen to Anderson .Paak’s Oxnard here.Marcus King Band – Carolina ConfessionsThe Marcus King Band released their most recent album, Carolina Confessions, in October. Produced by Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson), the album showcases the 22-year-old frontman’s maturation as a songwriter, as King takes writing credit on all ten tracks, in addition to on one co-written with The Black Keys‘ Dan Auerbach.“What’s really different about this record is the fact that the songs weren’t road tested before we cut them,” King told L4LM in a recent interview. “For Carolina Confessions, I wanted all the songs to be conceived right there in the studio, so that when we played them live we’d be able to approach them from completely different directions.”Considering Marcus King’s soulful and emotive vocals, some may be surprised to learn that the frontman never intended to be a singer. However, anyone that knows King personally or professionally wouldn’t be shocked to hear that his ambition to bring ever more to the table as an artist is what drives him. “What I wanted to do with this record was show the other side of who I am, which is a writer,” Marcus confided to L4LM. “I wanted to show that writing could be one of my strong suits and that I was more than just a singer or just a guitar player.”“This is the first record where I also really felt like a vocalist,” he confessed. “My first two albums, I felt like a guitar player that was singing almost out of necessity because no one else was going to do it. Carolina Confessions is the first album where I feel like my playing, my singing and my songwriting are all on the same level playing field.” Listen to Marcus King Band’s Carolina Confessions here.Khruangbin – Con Todo El MundoKhruangbin has been blowing up as of late, with the Texas trio gaining national recognition for their melodic, fun, and funk-driven tunes. Featuring Laura Lee on bass, Mark Speer on guitar, and Donald Johnson on drums, the trio is deeply psychedelic and draws from 1960’s Thai funk.In January, the band released their second full-length album, Con Todo El Mundo, via Dead Oceans. Following 2015’s The Universe Smiles Upon You, the group cemented their place in our hearts with another worldly release that puts forth some of the greatest, most chilled-out grooves of the year.Since releasing Con Todo El Mundo, the band has gone on its own headlining tour, while also touring in support of Leon Bridges, and, in 2019, will perform one show with Trey Anastasio’s newest band, Ghosts of the Forest.The Wood Brothers – One Drop Of TruthThe Wood Brothers released their new album, One Drop of Truth, back in February via Honey Jar/Thirty Tigers. The ten-track collection marks the trio’s sixth record to date, and was self-produced by bandmates and brothers Oliver and Chris Wood as well as Jano Rix. The album has been nominated for ‘Best Americana Album’ in the 2018 Grammy Awards.EXCLUSIVE: Oliver Wood Talks New Album, Storytelling, & The Wood Brothers’ OriginsBuilding off the success of their previous studio album, 2015’s Paradise, and 2017’s live release, Live At the Barn, recorded at Levon Helm‘s barn, The Wood Brothers found themselves at a fortuitous crossroads. Following a tour with Tedeschi Trucks Band, high profile festival dates and sold out headline shows, the band felt free from the cyclical album release, tour, write, record and do-it-all-over-again pressures.With all three members living in Nashville, they were afforded easy access to each other as well as a wealth of local independent studios at their disposal. This allowed them to start work on the album in January of 2017 with a new approach.“Instead of going into one studio and recording it all at the same time, we picked a couple studios, and started to experiment,” said Chris Wood in a press release about the album. “Sometimes we’d just make demos of songs to see if we got anything we liked. There was no pressure, and that really freed us up. We just did one or two songs a day, put it aside, let the songs simmer, and then we’d have a fresh perspective on what was working or not working. You need time to go by to gain objectivity.”The band extended this approach to the mixing process, sending tracks to four different mixing engineers, each selected based on what the song demanded. Scotty Hard (who’s worked extensively with Medeski Martin & Wood, among others) was recruited for the “edgier, funkier tunes,” “Sky High” and “Happiness Jones.” Mike Poole (who worked on The Wood Brothers album ‘The Muse’) mixed “Sparkling Wine” and “Strange As It Seems.” Their old friend Brandon Belle from Zac Brown’s Southern Ground studio took on “Laughin’ Or Crying”. The remainder of the album was mixed by Grammy Award-winning engineer Trina Shoemaker, especially sought after by The Wood Brothers for her work with Brandi Carlile. Listen to The Wood Brothers’ ‘One Drop of Truth’ here.Aqueous – Color WheelBuffalo-based groove rock quartet Aqueous released their newest studio album, Color Wheel, back in October. The new album, the band’s first full-length studio effort since 2014’s Cycles, was recorded at Goo Goo Dolls bassist Robby Takac‘s GCR Audio in Buffalo, NY, the band’s hometown, and was released in three parts. The band explores hip-hop, progressive rock, and jazz influences in this newest release, which features a collaboration with the Turkuaz Horns on “Weight Of The Word”, a song we’ve seen in Aqueous’ live rotation.“The general concept was kind of a critique or analysis of our habits as humans with the Internet right now,” guitarist Mike Gantzer shared in a recent interview with Billboard. “For me, a color wheel represents a palette of emotions. So we were looking at how we present this perfect version of ourselves on the Internet; We set out to make a cookie cutter version of our life that’s really idealized, but that does not represent at all the emotional complexities of a person’s life – the color wheel of different emotions.”The record was written and produced by the band, but this time they took a new approach – “Seventy percent of the songs were written weeks or even days before we went into the studio, so there weren’t many preconceived notions going in this time, which made it pretty exciting,” added Gantzer, making the album their freshest material to date. Listen to Aqueous’ Color Wheel here.Honorable mentions, based off the results from our recent reader poll, include Circles Around The Sun‘s Let It Wander, David Byrne‘s American Utopia, Lotus‘ Frames Per Second, Mac Miller‘s Swimming, Mungion‘s Ferris Wheel’s Day Off, Turkuaz‘s Life In The City, Umphrey’s McGee‘s It’s Not Us and It’s You, and Vulfpeck‘s Hill Climber.last_img read more

Don Mattingly feeling secure with the Dodgers

first_imgDay 15 into spring training, he’s just about finished addressing his comfort level after working last season without the hammer of security and then expressing his reluctance of doing the same this year during his now infamous season-ending press conference.Soon after managing the Dodgers within two games of their first World Series since 1988, Mattingly expressed discomfort with working on only the one-year guaranteed contract that vested last October. It all came out in an awkward press conference in which Mattingly said he didn’t want to work where he wasn’t wanted. Meanwhile, an obviously uncomfortable Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti sat just a few feet away.A month later the Dodgers removed any uncertainty by awarding Mattingly with a new deal.Now he just wants to move on.“I’ve answered this way too many times,” Mattingly said. “I do feel comfortable, but honestly it’s really at a point where, can we talk about baseball and just get past that?”Perhaps.But it’s worth noting that in the overly captious eyes that observe him every day, a different Mattingly has been detected this spring.And whether Mattingly wishes to talk about it or not, his players certainly have picked up on it.“He expresses himself better,” relief pitcher J.P. Howell said. “It’s something he doesn’t know he’s doing. Not that he was forced, but it’s more natural.”Or, as studious catcher A.J. Ellis noticed during Mattingly’s season-opening team meeting two weeks ago, someone now at ease with being in control.“Just the confidence. You could feel it in that first meeting,” Ellis said. “He took complete control of the room, he controlled the conversation. He was really able to communicate the way that he wants us to go about the game.“You can tell that he did it with a conviction of ‘This is my team. I’m not going anywhere. This is the way I want the game to be played’ — and it’s the right way. That’s the way we should approach the game. He’s able to communicate that extremely well.”Whether the message is any different today than last spring really doesn’t matter. Nor is who’s delivering it.In the bottom-line world of professional sports, it’s who has the juice to enforce it.Mattingly, now armed with a a new contract, has it and the players know it.That isn’t to say they undercut him last year when his long-term future with the Dodgers was in doubt or disobeyed him.It’s just that now, all gray matter has been eliminated.This is unquestionably Mattingly’s Dodgers now.“It was kind of like, you could feel that he had the confidence and he can implement the way to play the game,” Ellis said. “The first time he had a three-year deal it was his first year as a manager. Now this is year four. He’s built up three years of managerial experience, now he has another three-year contract. He knows he’s going to be stable here, especially with the way we’re going to play. With the second three-year contract, he can really communicate the way the game should be played, the way that we should play it and the way that he’s going to manage it.”Or as Andre Ethier explained: “There was as little more ownership in him feeling like it really is his, coming from that perspective. He was, I guess, not too sure of where he stood. You could definitely see, I guess, him reflecting that in that talk right there.”Even if it’s just perceptually, that matters to players.Mattingly isn’t expressing anything different now than he always has with the Dodgers.Be prepared. Be ready to play. Be committed.Nor is he re-inventing the wheel.But what he’s saying is being received a little more attentively now that his future is secure.That’s the power of security. And that’s exactly why Mattingly was so reluctant to manage this year without it.“It’s the same thing with a player. You get an extension, you get some team to say ‘You’re their guy’ and all of a sudden people think you’re a better player because of that,” Ethier said. “Maybe that’s a part of that, where it’s more respect from outside people. A team’s committed to him longer, like with a player.“It’s nothing personal, it’s just across the board in baseball. A guy who’s an all right player, five or six years in the big leagues he’s a good player, then the team locks him up and everybody’s talking about him when he’s the same player he was before. Now just because a team committed to him in years and money, it opens up your eyes and he sees it that way. I think maybe it’s the same way with Donnie.”Not that he cares to talk about it.“To me, I’m just happy where I’m at,” Mattingly said.And that’s [email protected] @DailyNewsVinny on Twitter Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error GLENDALE, Ariz. — The steady rain pelting central Arizona on Saturday morning forced Dodgers manager Don Mattingly indoors to do his daily media session. A game against the Milwaukee Brewers loomed in a few hours, although mother nature didn’t appear to be cooperating. So for now about the only newsworthy items were injury updates on outfielder Matt Kemp and pitcher Zack Greinke, both of whom seem to be progressing well.Mattingly, on the cusp of his fourth year managing the Dodgers, delivered both reports comfortably and confidently. He was concise but informative. To the point, but still enlightening.It wasn’t necessarily in contrast to similar tasks he completed over his first three seasons leading the Dodgers. He’s always been cordial and informative.center_img But there is a definite ease to him that hasn’t always always been apparent in past years. Maybe it’s the result of the three-year contract extension the Dodgers gave him last winter, which provided him the security and peace of mind lacking all last season while working on an expiring contract.Maybe it’s just the familiarity of being in charge of the same team for four consecutive years, a virtual lifetime in the rapidly dwindling shelf life of modern-day managers.Whatever the case, Mattingly appears as comfortable as he’s ever been as the Dodgers skipper.Not that he’s real excited talking about it.last_img read more

JAAA boss wants separate sports ministry

first_imgPresident of the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association Dr Warren Blake would like to see sport being given its own ministry, as well as the development of more regional sporting facilities, when the new government unfolds. Blake told The Gleaner that a separate ministry for sport would aid in the long-term planning and development of sports locally. “The importance of sports to Jamaica has really grown, especially over the last four years, it has grown tremendously and there are really lots of things that sports can do for this country,” Blake told The Gleaner at the G.C. Foster Classics at the G.C. Foster College of Physical Education and Sport on Saturday. “Having a separate ministry for sports would help make this happen and it would help not only track and field, but all sports, so you could start to plan long-term for the development of the country,” he added. Dr Blake added that he would like to see more synthetic track and field surfaces being built across the island. The only all-weather tracks which exist currently in Jamaica are at the G.C. Foster College, the National Stadium, Stadium East, Calabar High School and the Montego Bay Sports Complex. “I would like to see the development of a number of mini-stadia across the island so that synthetic surfaces could be not only in Kingston and Montego Bay. There is none in the centre or the eastern end of the island, so we would like to see more synthetic surfaces placed across the island,” Blake said.last_img read more

These Portable Technologies Are Going to Change the Video Production Industry

first_imgA new wave of advanced cameras puts state-of-the-art technology in the palm of your hand.There are few industries that move as fast as the film and video industry. It seems like there are game-changing camera releases every few days. Here’s a quick look at the new cameras that are shaking up the status quo this week.The Light L16 CameraAnnounced just a week ago, the Light L16 camera is looking like it might radically change the way we take pictures and shoot video. Instead of taking a picture or shooting video with a single camera, the Light camera is essentially 16 different cameras mixed into one. When you push the shutter button, the Light camera will take 16 pictures — and then stitch them together.Even more impressive is the ability to change the depth of field in post-production. Want to isolate your subject? Just dial up the bokeh slider and watch your background become out of focus. Light released a short lifestyle video showing the Light L16 in action. Check it out:The L16 is scheduled to be available in Spring of 2016 for the price of $1,700. However, there’s no information yet about details like dynamic range or sensitivity. You’ll want to keep an eye on this camera.DJI OsmoDJI is branching out of the drone world with their latest gear announcement, the DJI Osmo. In a nutshell, the Osmo is a motorized 3-axis gimbal stabilizer with a 4K and 120fps HD capabilities.The stabilizer is designed to be small, lightweight, and compact, making it perfect for travel and run-and-gun situations. Using your smartphone, you can monitor the video coming from the Osmo camera via bluetooth.DJI Released a quick video with sample footage shot on the Osmo. The footage isn’t breathtakingly cinematic, but it’s very impressive, given how small the device and camera is.The DJI Osmo will begin shipping October 15th for $650, which is not a bad price for such a powerful tool.The iPhone 6sHalf of this image was shot on an iPhone 6s. The other half was shot on an a7RII. Can you guess which is which?I know what you’re thinking: the iPhone 6s. How could this possibly change the industry? I shared your concerns until I saw this side-by-side comparison video between the new iPhone 6s and the Sony a7RII. Check it out:Note: In the image above, the left side is the iPhone 6s. The right is the a7RII. The iPhone 6s has also been used to shoot a fantastic short film called The Painter of Jalouzi, in which you’ll notice how well the device holds up when capturing the sky. While there’s certainly a way to go, it’s not impossible to think that a film designed for online distribution could be shot on an iPhone, as long as the lighting is good.What do you think of the technologies mentioned in this article? Will they change the industry? Share you thoughts in the comments below.last_img read more

A List of Rules for Sales Success

first_imgFocus 10X as much time and energy and money on becoming someone worth buying from as you do on electronics, sporting events, or wherever you spend these resources now.Start every day with getting your attitude right, even if it means exercising first thing in the morning, meditating in the car, or listening to music that changes your state (for my money, AC/DC’s For Those About to Rock works beautifully).Read books on your craft, but also read non-fiction books and magazine articles to better understand your world and to improve your ability to think laterally.Prospect every day, even when you don’t feel like it, and even when you have a full pipeline.Spend time nurturing your dream clients, even if your competitor has them locked down, even if they are completely cold, and even if you have warm leads.Don’t spend time with people who can’t or won’t buy what you sell, even if you believe they should, and even if they would benefit from doing so.Plan every sales call, even if you have made 1,000 sales calls, and even if you believe it is not necessary.Listen more than you speak, and give people more time to respond by waiting until they run out of words, even when it feels uncomfortable.Remember that selling isn’t something you are doing to someone. It is something you are doing for someone and with someone. You are helping people produce outcomes they could not produce without you.Start the conversation at the highest level of value possible, even if you feel like you need to lean on the credibility of your company, and even if you really want to share your solution.Ask the difficult questions, even when they make you uncomfortable, and even if they make your dream client uncomfortable.Identify all the people who are involved in any deal, even if it is difficult to manage, and even if this causes you to have to engage with people who oppose the change you are helping your dream client make.Never give up on pursuing your dream client, even if it feels like a waste of time, and even if they have a contract with your competitor.Work to control the process and the sales conversation, even if the person or people you are working with try to avoid making the commitments they need to make, and even if you have to persist and go back over ground you have already covered.Close your web-browser for 90 minutes at a time while you focus on what’s most important. Close your email for 90 minutes while you are doing the work that produces the outcomes you want. Remember, you would have both of these things closed if you were with a client, and you should treat your goals like they are a client in which you are investing time.Ask for the commitments that you have earned, and when that fails, explain the value for your client in agreeing and ask again.Spend as much time studying human psychology as any other subject, as all of your results are going to be produced through or with other people.Remember that your clients have very real concerns that prevent them from taking action, and it is your job to resolve those concerns completely, even if they are irrational, and even if it is difficult work.Respect your competition, never underestimate them, and work hard to be the kind of person who wins a competition because they outperformed their competitors by creating a preference to work with you over all others.Be open-minded about the processes and methodologies available in sales, and never discount ideas with which you disagree, especially if they bring value to others. At the same time, remember everything is contextual, and be skeptical of any claims that you can have what you want without effort.In all human relationships, fast is slow, and slow is fast. If you want to go fast, go slow. If you don’t want to go slow, don’t try to go fast.Work harder than anyone you know. Work smarter than anyone you know.Plan your week over the weekend and block the time for your most important outcomes. Start the week knowing what you are going to do and get a jump on the competition.Don’t fear failure. Accept it as feedback, make adjustments, and try again.last_img read more

Appeal to remove image of female on social media

first_img ALERT # 2 ON POTENTIAL TROPICAL CYCLONE NINE ISSUED BY THE BAHAMAS DEPARTMENT OF METEOROLOGY THURSDAY 12TH SEPTEMBER, 2019 AT 9 PM EDT If you have images or information of any possible suspect, it is suggested that you email it to [email protected] instead of sending on WhatsApp or posting on Social Media.  Press Release: RTCIPF Related Items:#magneticmedianews Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos, March 5, 2017 – Providenciales – The female whose image has been circulating on WhatsApp and Social Media indicating tht she is the mastermind of a robbery and shooting incident that occurred yesterday (Saturday 4th March 2017) at a Resort in Lower Bight, Providenciales, has voluntarily reported to Police stating she has no involvement with this incident.Detectives did not have any suspicion of this particular female, however her image including Social Media profile has surface and had since went viral accusing her of being a part of the set-up.The public is reminded to act responsibly when publishing statements that are non-factual about persons on the internet and since this can cause damage to a person’s reputation, character or integrity, civil suits may be taken.  If the Police have reasons to believe that a person has committed a crime, they may issue wanted images to the public for assistance.Persons must also be careful of their Whatsapp Interactions.
