Watch Young Derek Trucks Jam With Brother Duane And Jimmy Herring In 1995

first_imgIn 1995, Derek Trucks was in the midst of making his fame through his own Derek Trucks Band. Beyond coming from a family of rock stars, the young Derek had skills that impressed many at that age. While his talents were undeniable, it was Col. Bruce Hampton (who you’ll see on set toward the end of this video) that really pushed along his career. With the “Godfather of Jam Bands” backing you up, there’s no question that the 16-year-old guitarist had business performing at The Georgia Theatre.Jimmy Herring, another close family friend of the Trucks, also played the show with Derek. In the video below, you can see Derek and Herring practicing during soundcheck, alongside a young Duane Trucks behind the drum kit. Who would’ve expected that 21 years later, these two would be playing together in Widespread Panic? Even more, the young drummer is also now married to Herring’s daughter, making The White Wizard out to be Duane’s father-in-law. The history goes way back between the Trucks and Herring families, but this snippet from a soundcheck in 1995 at The Georgia Theatre really shows just how deep the roots run:Watch the full performance of the Derek Trucks Band with Jimmy Herring at The Georgia Theatre in 1995 below:last_img read more

The Breaking Down Borders Africa Youth Initiative

first_imgBy Ntombi NtanziThe Breaking Down Borders Africa Youth Initiative in collaboration with Brand South Africa will be bringing another chapter of this year’s Africa Youth Summit.The Breaking Down Borders Africa Initiative, is a Pan-African platform led by African youth for the benefit of African youth. The initiative is inspired by the vision of enabling African youth to connect and collaborate towards the prosperity of the continent.To this end, the initiative is invested in bringing all Africans together, to dissect the issues they are faced with and to find solutions that can be applied in resolving the challenges identified. Breaking Down Borders Africa, promotes arts education across the continent including Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Namibia, Uganda, Kenya. DRC, Senegal, Tanzania, Zambia and Lesotho.In March, the launch of the 2018 programme and theme was unveiled – “African youth, building our legacy” to media and stakeholders. The Youth summit will be from the 14th – 18th May 2018.Opening the session was Brand South Africa’s Strategic Relationship Manager, Ms Toni Gumede, who gave insight on how Brand South Africa’s involvement was to support youth programmes that enrich and positively impact South African youth and the African youth as a whole.“This programme is doing exactly what we seek to do through the domestic mandate of Brand South Africa and the Play your part programme, we want to break down borders and build the continent together through active citizenship and encourage all South Africans to contribute to progressive change. We are proud to be part of this programme as it inspires our youth and all citizens to collaborate beyond the borders”; said Ms GumedeA keynote address by, Dr Edith Phaswana; further put things into perspective speaking on the legacy of Mandela and emphasized the need for young people to follow the path paved by struggle heroes for a better tomorrow.“Building a legacy is about having influence into the future…breaking down borders, is beyond the physical but also a mental transition. Through this type of this initiative, the youth is able to drive unity. How will you change the world beyond your departure?”, said Dr Phaswana“As a Play Your Part Ambassador and founder of the initiative, I want to create platforms that allow the African youth to collaborate and connect. Our objectives are to further bring Africans together, through a shared passion for music and dance. I encourage the youth to register and follow the conversation and definitely play their part”, said Founder Paul Modjadji.For more information go to: https://breakingdownbordersafrica.com/last_img read more

Upcoming, The Social Events Database, Is Planning Its Rise From The Dead

first_imgUpcoming will use APIs provided by Twitter and Foursquare for authentication, network graph, and place name database. In order to follow and share events with friends, people will have to use Twitter to login to Upcoming.“I’m probably going to focus on Twitter to start. The relationships on Twitter are more conducive to the community that works on Upcoming, rather than Facebook,” Baio said in an interview. “When you follow people [on Twitter] it’s more about shared interests than it is about that you knew them once in your life.”When Upcoming first launched, there was no way to pull in a place database—people had to add their own locations, including states, cities and venues. Now with Foursquare’s massive collection of places, users won’t have to add a new place each time an event is created.Facebook is currently the most popular way for people to create events and invite friends, but its system is flawed. Not everyone has a Facebook account, and as social networking becomes more fragmented, friends don’t just live in one place—for instance, there are a handful of Twitter friends I’d want to invite for drinks, but they’re not my friends on Facebook. Facebook events are limited to your Facebook friends, and it’s not a great way to find and meet new people.Eventbrite, another massive events website, also has shortcomings. While it’s great for organizing large, official meet-ups, it doesn’t create much of a community. It’s also less-than-ideal for small, personal events. Putting People Over DataUpcoming, if successful, could offer a serious alternative to Facebook events. But it won’t be like Facebook. Baio said he won’t collect data like photos, events and personal information and sell it to advertisers.“I’m extraordinarily sensitive to ads and traditional ads—it’s just not something I’ve ever had any interest in and I feel like you should own your own data,” he said. “You’re putting stuff in, it’s not just data at that point. In the case of Upcoming, people were putting in their memories.”Baio said while he might consider using email as a login option for those who would prefer to remain anonymous, the social graph that Twitter provides would give users a better way to find and follow events from people with whom they share similar interests.Now that the new Upcoming is fully funded, Baio will get to work. There’s no precise launch date yet, but he hopes to have a public beta available by March 2015.  Images courtesy Upcoming Kickstarter Way before Facebook events became a standard for managing social gatherings, there was Upcoming.org. Launched in 2003, Upcoming was a way for you to track events you planned to attend, invite your friends, and see the events they were going to. Upcoming was one of the first sites that used the concept of social networking to go beyond pages and profiles, and it focused primarily on art and technology events around the world. The founders sold it to Yahoo in 2005, and like many companies so acquired, Upcoming got shut down last year, following years in which its service had merely slumped along.Yahoo, however, recently offered to sell Upcoming.org back to its original founder, and now it’s ready to make a comeback—this time, promising not to make the mistake of selling a company users love.And it’s using new social technologies that weren’t available the first time around.A New Social Event ExperienceAndy Baio, founder of Upcoming, launched a Kickstarter campaign on Wednesday to bring back the social events manager. The campaign achieved its goal of $30,000 in just 90 minutes. Baio is the former CTO of Kickstarter, so it makes sense for him to launch his new venture on the crowdfunding platform.His campaign is half nostalgia, half promises of a new and better Upcoming—one that leverages our social networks to find events that our friends and contacts are excited about. Anyone who remembers Upcoming as a place to find and connect with friends can appreciate the homage to its historical mission; new users may just be interested in a social events manager that doesn’t rely on Facebook.

Goffin beats Federer at ATP Finals, faces Dimitrov in final

first_imgHowever, Federer wasted two game points in the second game of the second set. Goffin produced a forehand passing shot to take his first break point of the match.“It was a tough game to get broken at 1-0,” Federer said. “I had I think multiple game chances to get out of the game and go 1-1, keep the pressure up. Things really turned around for him at that moment.”The winners flowed from Goffin’s racket, unsettling Federer, who coughed up uncharacteristic errors.Goffin needed just the one break in both the second and third sets and displayed a previously unseen grit to deny Federer his lone break point opportunities in either set.It was testament to the remarkable season Federer has put together that his loss came as such a major surprise.ADVERTISEMENT Japan ex-PM Nakasone who boosted ties with US dies at 101 “It is the best win of my career, for sure,” said Goffin, who lost all six of his previous encounters against Federer.“I started to feel the ball better at the end of the first set, so I wanted to be more aggressive. It paid off. I started to serve well. My forehand was going much better.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutHis opponent on Sunday in the final will be Grigor Dimitrov after the Bulgarian defeated Jack Sock 4-6, 6-0, 6-3.With Federer having lost just four times during a season that saw him claim his 18th and 19th Grand Slam titles at the Australian Open and Wimbledon, it looked ominous for Goffin when the six-time champion broke twice on his way to winning the first set.

(AP Photo/Tim Ireland)LONDON — A set up against a man he’d never lost to, Roger Federer looked to be cruising toward a shot at a seventh ATP Finals title. David Goffin had other ideas.The Belgian rallied in the semifinals on Saturday to claim the biggest win of his career and stun the favorite 2-6, 6-3, 6-4.ADVERTISEMENT However, neither the loss to Goffin nor the fact he finishes the year second, behind Nadal in the rankings, will prevent him from being favorite for the Australian Open in January.“It’s been an amazing year for me,” Federer said. “Been so happy that I was playing at this level from the beginning till basically the end, till today.”The match was typical of Goffin’s inconsistent week on his full debut at the tournament, after he played one match as an alternate a year ago.After defeating a wounded Rafael Nadal in his opening match, he was thrashed in just 74 minutes by Dimitrov, and qualified for the semis with a comfortable win over Dominic Thiem.“Both are really special,” said Goffin, after becoming only the sixth man to defeat Nadal and Federer in the same tournament. “It was the first time against Rafa. Then the semifinal for the first time for me here, and to beat Roger for the first time here in such a big event, big tournament, it was the perfect moment.”Dimitrov ensured he’ll end the year at a career-high No. 3 after coming from behind to defeat Sock.Having won his previous two matches for the loss of just four games, Dimitrov’s title credentials were given a far more rigorous examination by the American.Dimitrov is the first debutant to reach the final since David Ferrer in 2007.Goffin will be the underdog again after winning just two games against Dimitrov on Wednesday.“It will be something different hopefully,” said Goffin, who can move to a career-high No. 5 if he claims the title. “I hope to play the tennis I played today. I’ll try to be more aggressive, also go for the shot, and yeah, go for the trophy.” 3-time Olympic champion ‘Pocket Hercules’ dies at 50 CPP denies ‘Ka Diego’ arrest caused ‘mass panic’ among S.
