first_imgLettuce | Red Rocks Amphitheatre | Morrison, CO | 5/13/2017 | Photo: Phierce Photo Detonating on Saturday, May 13th, Lettuce’s second annual Rage Rocks performance at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre is already the stuff of legend. Predictably, the Royal Family extravaganza was a mighty display of funk, soul, jazz, and fusion muscle, creating an evening brimming with explosive jams from Lettuce and their fantastic friends. Guests included Marcus King, John Scofield, and New Orleans royalty George Porter Jr. and Cyril Neville for two sets of chunky, greasy Lettucefunk, as well as opening hits from JRocc, Turkuaz, and The Russ Liquid Test.Lettuce Rages Red Rocks With Ghostface Killah, George Porter Jr., John Scofield, And More [Photos/Videos]However, the most buzzed about collaboration of the evening was Ghostface Killah’s emergence to kick off Lettuce’s second set. The reclusive Wu-Tang emcee, sorcerer of the non-sequitur, and among the most cherished and respected personas in hip-hop, stepped into the Colorado night with authority, and their chemistry sparked electric from the very first verse. Taking the stage in Jedi robes after a haunting “Requiem” intro, Lettuce plus Tony Starks dove right into the chilling boom-bap of “Mighty Healthy”, the beloved deep cut from Ghost’s sophomore LP Supreme Clientele. It was nothing short of transcendental, as the band reproduced RZA’s voodoo metronome with tenacity. From there, Ghostface led the team into the timeless Shaolin anthem “C.R.E.A.M.”, and the crowd lost their minds chanting the classic refrain “Dolla Dolla Bill, Y’all.”Listen as Ghostface himself is blown away (“Oh Shit!”) as he realizes the band is playing the song’s sample source material (The Charmels “As Long As I’ve Got You”) underneath his rhymes. The rapper is equally amazed by the furious reactions from the Rage Rocks audience. Meanwhile, drummer Adam Deitch absolutely nails the drum programming on “Shimmy Shimmy Ya,” solo-salvo from dearly departed Wu-heyoka Ol’ Dirty Bastard.Lettuce, Snarky Puppy, Turkuaz, & More To Headline New Event Funk Of AgesThe Big Apple bully squad wasn’t done yet, milking one more classic from the collab that wasn’t even on the setlist: “Daytona 500.” The song represents a feverish display of emceeing from GFK’s 1996 debut Ironman, licking shots over Bob James‘ omnipresent scorcher “Nautilus.” To be raging second row at Red Rocks and hear my favorite band perform my all-time #1 Ghostface song with the man himself? In a word, deliverance! To quote the hero of the hour, Ghost-Deini: “Let’s f*ckin’ hear it for the Lettuce band!”Please enjoy this crisp audio of the Lettuce/Ghostface Killah Rage Rocks collabo courtesy of Upful LIFE.

Zack to chair ABA House of Delegates

first_img March 15, 2004 Managing Editor Regular News Zack to chair ABA House of Delegates Zack to chair ABA House of Delegates Mark D. Killian Managing Editor Miami lawyer Stephen N. Zack has been named chair-elect of the ABA House of Delegates, the second ranking officer in the organization.Other Florida lawyers who will serve in ABA leadership positions include Tampa’s Michael A. Bedke, who will represent District 8, which is composed of Florida and Texas, on the ABA Board of Governors, and Orlando’s Suzanne E. Gilbert, who is the sole nominee to serve as a Young Lawyers Division representative on the ABA board. Steve Zack Zack, who has chaired the ABA Standing Committee on Bar Activities and Services and is a past president of The Florida Bar and the National Conference of Bar Presidents, will begin his two-year term a year from now. Many who are elected chair of the House of Delegates go on to serve as ABA president.“I believe that the chair of the house is one of the most interesting positions in the ABA because it is a 540-person unicameral legislature that sets the policy of the legal profession,” said Zack, who has been a member of the House of Delegates for the past 15 years. “I realize how important it is that the house have an opportunity to have the debate it has and am very excited about the opportunity to serve as its chair.”Zack said it was his mentor, the late Chesterfield Smith, who encouraged his participation in the ABA and that the leadership of the house was something to which he should aspire.“I wish he were here to be a part of this,” said Zack, who also has served as special counsel to Florida’s former governor, now U.S. Sen. Bob Graham.“If there is an important issue that the legal profession is involved with, it comes before the house by way of resolutions [from state bars or ABA sections] and then is debated in that forum and if adopted, becomes a policy of the ABA,” Zack said. “Obviously, if the ABA speaks on any issue, it becomes a statement of the legal profession and is highly persuasive both in Congress and among the state and local bar associations.”Zack said it is the House of Delegates that is the voice of the legal profession and the chair of the house is someone who makes sure that the debate that occurs in the house occurs “with respect for everyone and dignity and, hopefully, a sense of humor as well.”Zack said he saw running for chair of the House of Delegates as a natural progression in his work within the ABA.“It was time to either move up or move out,” Zack said. “After 15 years in the house, it was an opportunity to chair the house or give someone else an opportunity to sit in the house.”Zack said he will strive to provide the same valuable leadership Florida provided the ABA through the likes of Chesterfield Smith, Wm. Reese Smith, Sandy D’Alemberte, and Martha Barnett.“Without their doing the fine work they had done, then I believe it would have been very difficult to be considered for this position,” Zack said.Zack encouraged Florida lawyers to continue to present issues to the ABA house and asked that they enlist the support of the ABA in achieving their objectives on behalf of the legal profession and their clients.Zack also has chaired the Florida Ethics Commission and previously served as a member of the Florida Entertainment Commission and the State of Florida Constitution Revision Commission. Zack also has served as chair of the ABA Select Committee of the House, the ABA Board of Governors, and as a member of the Board’s Finance, Communications and Operations Committees. Zack has also served as a member of the Federal Judicial Nominating Commission for the Southern District of Florida, as a member of the 11th Circuit, Miami-Dade County Judicial Nominating Committee, and as a member of the Dade County Fair Campaign Practices Committee. Michael Bedke Bedke was elected to a three-year term on the ABA Board of Governors, recently concluded a term as chair of the ABA ‘s Standing Committee on Membership, and also has chaired the ABA Commission on Domestic Violence and the ABA’s Young Lawyers Division.“I guess that I am old school in that I believe we are part of a learned profession and we owe an obligation to give something back to society, and the ABA has been at the forefront of those issues,” Bedke said. “Also, the issues that are impacting the profession ultimately are debated and resolved, to some extent, at the ABA.”Over the next few years, Bedke thinks the ABA board will focus on the organization’s financial well-being, membership benefits, and increased membership.“Dennis Archer, the ABA’s current president, really has been beating the drum to bring more people back into the ABA,” Bedke said. “We have got to bring more military lawyers; we have got to bring more sole and small practice practitioners; and we have to bring more diversity into the ABA.”Bedke said if the 400,000-member ABA is going to hold itself out as the national spokesperson on behalf of the profession, it must represent the majority of lawyers in the country.“I think that is going to be a real focus for the organizations and particularly for the Board of Governors over the course of the next couple of years,” he said.Bedke said he wants to hear from Florida lawyers about issues the ABA should, or should not, be addressing, and urged them to contact him at michael.bedke@“I’m here to help ensure their voices are heard,” Bedke said. Suzanne Gilbert Gilbert, the daughter of former Florida Bar President Leonard H. Gilbert, will be officially elected to the post of YLD member-at-large representative to the ABA Board of Governors in August. She will then serve for one year as the nominee, and in August 1995, will begin a two-year term on the board as one of two ABA YLD representatives.Gilbert began her involvement in the ABA YLD in 1999, about six months after she began working at Holland & Knight and a little over two years since she began practicing.“My dad, who at the time was chair of the fellows of the American Bar Foundation, stressed to me the importance of service to the bar through both his words and his actions,” Gilbert said. “I had grown up around The Florida Bar and the ABA through my dad’s work in both organizations and was excited to be involved as an attorney.”Gilbert said ABA YLD is a forum for debate on issues that affect lawyers, many times used as a testing ground for issues that will be presented on the floor of the ABA House of Delegates. She said it provides a wonderful opportunity for young lawyers to raise issues of concern, both procedural and substantive, such as multidisciplinary practice and domestic violence.“I am very fortunate to have such wonderful role models for bar service — Chesterfield Smith, Martha Barnett, and my dad, to name a few,” said Gilbert, noting the ABA YLD represents approximately 135,000 young lawyers across the country. “One of its primary missions is service to the public and the legal community. We are often recognized as the public service arm of the ABA. Currently, we are promoting our public service project entitled “One Child, One Lawyer,” which has as its aim increasing awareness of the unmet legal needs of children.”Gilbert also said she will continue to do what others in Florida did for her — help Florida young lawyers who want to be active participants in the ABA YLD get involved.

First coronavirus death on US soil confirmed, Trump calls for calm

first_imgThe first fatality from the novel coronavirus has been confirmed on US soil, as President Donald Trump on Saturday urged Americans not to panic.Health officials said the man who died in Washington state was one of a handful with no known links to global hot zones to have contracted the virus — indicating that the pathogen was now likely spreading in communities.The death occurred in King County, the most populous in the state and home to Seattle, a city of more than 700,000 people, officials told AFP. “Our country is prepared for any circumstance,” Trump insisted, calling on “the media and politicians and everybody else involved not to do anything to incite panic.”Trump identified the victim as “a wonderful woman,” but the CDC later said it had misinformed the president in an earlier briefing.Washington state also reported on Saturday the country’s first case of coronavirus in a health care worker and the first possible outbreak in a nursing home. This comes after the states of Oregon and California confirmed late last week the first instances of infected US patients who had not traveled overseas or come in contact with anyone known to be ill.”While there is still much to learn about the unfolding situations in California, Oregon and Washington, preliminary information raises the level of concern about the immediate threat for COVID-19 for certain communities in the United States,” the CDC said.- ‘We will see more cases’ -Trump said he would meet with leaders of big pharmaceutical groups at the White House on Monday to discuss treatments and efforts to develop a vaccine to combat the virus.The president said the number of cases detected by the US public health system now stood at 22. Combined with patients who were repatriated from abroad, the overall number of infected on US soil is now about 70.”We will see more cases,” Health Secretary Alex Azar told the White House press conference.”But it’s important to remember, for the vast majority of individuals who contract the novel coronavirus, they will experience mild to moderate symptoms.”Their treatment will be to remain at home and treat the symptoms as they would the flu, he added.The president and other officials also announced a more complete ban on travel from Iran, which has seen a rapid spread of the disease, and encouraged Americans to avoid travel to hard-hit areas in Italy and South Korea.Vice President Mike Pence, charged by Trump to lead efforts against the virus, said that an existing ban on travel from Iran had been expanded to include any foreign national who has visited the Islamic republic within the last 14 days.Trump also said the United States was ready to assist Iran with its coronavirus outbreak and that “all they have to do is ask.”An American citizen died of the new coronavirus in early February at the Chinese epicenter of the global outbreak, the city of Wuhan, the US embassy confirmed at the time.Worldwide, the virus has hit about 60 countries across the globe, with more than 2,900 people killed and over 85,000 infected since it was first detected at an animal market in Wuhan late last year.Topics : The victim was in his 50s and had “underlying health conditions,” said Jeff Duchin, public health officer for Seattle and King County.”It is a sad day in our state as we learn that a Washingtonian has died from COVID-19,” Washington state Governor Jay Inslee said in a statement, sending condolences to the victim’s loved ones.Inslee declared a state of emergency over coronavirus, freeing up funding for state agencies and allowing the use of the Washington National Guard, if necessary.Speaking at a White House news conference Trump said that “additional cases in the United States are likely,” but added that “healthy individuals should be able to fully recover.”last_img read more

Hamilton marches in ‘really moving’ London anti-racism protest

first_imgEarlier, Hamilton had penned an article for Britain’s Sunday Times newspaper in which he said he was launching his own diversity body to attract more black youngsters into motor racing, insisting the “time for token gestures is over”.Hamilton, a powerful and influential voice, said he was teaming up with Britain’s Royal Academy of Engineering to launch The Hamilton Commission.”I’ve been fighting the stigma of racism throughout my racing career — from kids throwing things at me while karting, to being taunted by fans in black face at a 2007 Grand Prix, one of my first Formula One races,” wrote Hamilton.”Despite my success in the sport, the institutional barriers that have kept F1 highly exclusive persist. “It is not enough to point to me, or to a single new black hire, as a meaningful example of progress. Thousands of people are employed across this industry and that group needs to be more representative of society.”The research partnership wants to encourage young black people to study science, technology, engineering and mathematics.Hamilton hopes that will then open up avenues to boost the number of minorities represented in Formula One.”The time for platitudes and token gestures is over,” he insisted.  “I was proud to be out there acknowledging and supporting the Black Lives Matter movement, and my black heritage. “I was also happy to see so many white supporters out there in the name of equality for all. It was really moving. I’m feeling extremely positive that change will come, but we cannot stop now. Keep pushing.”Hamilton also posted a photograph of himself holding up a Black Lives Matter sign while his T-shirt slogan said: ‘Black is a vibe’.The six-time world champion also wore a yellow scarf around his face. Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton marched in the latest anti-racism protest in London on Sunday, describing the experience as “really moving”.The 35-year-old Hamilton, the only black driver in F1, joined the protests which have become common since the death of George Floyd in the United States last month.”Went down to Hyde Park today for the peaceful protest and I was so proud to see in person so many people of all races and backgrounds supporting this movement,” Hamilton wrote on Instagram.center_img Topics :last_img read more
