Joey Dosik Captivates Sellout Crowd In NYC Performance [Gallery]

first_imgDosik lead his talented trio through selections from his Game Winner EP, debuted a new solo arrangement of Game Winner track “Competitive Streak” (performed with delicate beauty on a classical acoustic guitar), covered The Beatles and Marvin Gaye, challenged to crowd to rap along with a Will Smith song, and even treated the sold-out crowd to new tune dedicated to his grandmother (which he hinted would be sung by Antwaun Stanley on an upcoming Vulfpeck release). Dosik closed out his set with an extended performance of “Game Winner” featuring an amusing first-hand musical recounting of the highly publicized Charles Oakley/James Dolan drama that took place during his “second to last” trip to see the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.Before the encore, Dosik commented, “One thing we need to do more as a society is listen to women,” and brought up longtime friend Nadia Tykulsker for a reading of James Baldwin‘s poem “Paradise” before sending the audience home with tender ballad “Simply Beautiful.”You can catch Joey Dosik and his many musical talents on the road with Lake Street Dive throughout February and March. Head here for a full list of upcoming dates.Setlist: Joey Dosik | (le) Poisson Rouge | New York, NY | 2/19/17Inside Voice, Don’t Want It To Be Over, Running Away, Arrow Through Me, Past The Point, Don’t Let Me Down, Grandma Song^, Stories^, Competitive Streak^**, What’s Happening Brother^, Take Mine^, Game Winner^ENCORE: James Baldwin poem “Paradise” read by Nadia Tykulsker, Simply Beautiful **Played on classical guitar; ^Solo Joey Dosik | (le) Poisson Rouge | New York, NY | 2/19/17 (photos by Andrew O’Brien) On Sunday evening, singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Joey Dosik made his way to New York City’s (le) Poisson Rouge for his final headlining performance before an extended run of dates supporting Lake Street Dive. As he mentioned in his interview with Live For Live Music last week, Dosik was particularly excited for the intimate performance–a rare chance to perform on a real grand piano and indulge his cocktail lounge singer proclivities while simultaneously doing things “you’ll never see at a jazz show in 2017.” “This is totally my element,” gushed Dosik, “This is a therapy session for me tonight.”While each song on the setlist was beautifully performed, the true magic of the performance came from the charismatic showmanship and colorful commentary that he expertly wove into the set. Clearly relaxed and enjoying himself, Dosik crooned about the meanings of songs, told stories, and waxed nostalgic without breaking his musical stride. The audience, in turn, laughed and cheered along, hanging on his every word. Load remaining imageslast_img read more

Body of work

first_imgPer-Olof Hasselgren already knew English when he arrived to the United States from Sweden 31 years ago, but in his stateside conversations, he couldn’t help but sense an owl in the moss.Befuddled when someone remarked that something was “fishy,” Hasselgren didn’t yet grasp American slang and idiomatic expressions. “Something’s fishy” wouldn’t make much sense directly translated into Swedish, but Hasselgren eventually located its Swedish counterpart, that aforementioned head-scratching phrase involving feathered critters in a bog. (Another American expression, “to beat around the bush,” would mean to “walk like a cat around hot porridge” in Sweden.)The George H. A. Clowes, Jr. Professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School and surgeon at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center began keeping a log of these newfound turns of language as he discovered them, learning that quite a bit of American slang was based on anatomy and body parts, his specialty.Though the surgeon spends most of his days focusing on endocrine organs, phrases like “foot in one’s mouth” and “tongue-tied” truly piqued his interest, along with the idea that expressions can be both funny and educational.“When I have medical students and residents scrubbed in during my cases in the operating room, there are many opportunities to demonstrate and discuss anatomy,” he said. “I often make the point that anatomy matters. I usually also jokingly add, ‘You even need to know your anatomy to be able to speak and understand your language properly.’”About four years ago, Hasselgren realized he had a project on his hands and began shopping around his compendium of expressions. That book, “Body Language — From Head to Toe,” contains more than 2,000 English idioms, words, and expressions related to anatomy.Hasselgren also looked for body-related expressions in Swedish but concluded that more are found in English. “A lot are … butt-related,” he noticed. So many, in fact, that they warranted their own chapter that features expressions like butt out, butthead, butt of a joke, as well as some choice curse words. All are defined, as with any dictionary, and Hasselgren even demonstrates how to use each in a sentence (in case you don’t already know it like the back of your hand).An avid reader, Hasselgren said he’s always enjoyed the writing component of his profession, mostly penning articles for scholastic journals. But “Body Language” is decidedly cheekier work, especially for the often humorless field of medicine.“I like to play with words, and most people pick up on it,” he said. “I often had to get up quite early before going to work to work on this book and then continue late evenings. It took some effort, but I had a lot of fun.”He was, after all, just following his gut.last_img read more

Build a Compost Pile

first_imgDuring the fresh-vegetable season, from my family of four, I’ve been putting about 14pounds of kitchen materials a week on my compost pile. Most kitchen scraps may be used, too, except for animal fat, bones and milk products. You can hasten the decomposition if you turn the pile every few weeks. If you don’tchoose to turn it or can’t, don’t worry — it will still decompose. It will take longer, butwhat’s time to compost? On top of this, spread one cup of complete garden fertilizer or a couple of shovelfuls ofmanure. You can also add a light layer of soil. The best activator for compost is oldcompost. Normally, five to eight months will be required to finish compost, depending on thematerial used and the heat and moisture available during the composting period. Fall is a great time for composting because of the abundance of leaves to add to the pile. Compost is ready for use when the material turns dark and becomes crumbly. Finishedcompost will have lost much of its original identity and will have an “earthy” smell. These include coffee and tea grounds, eggshells, peelings of vegetables and fruits, canningby-products such as tomato peels, apple peelings and cores and corn husks. Kitchen Compostables Continue to alternate layers. As each is complete, water it thoroughly. Keep the pile moist,but not soggy. If you don’t want to use anything at all, just pile up the composting material. That willwork, too. Just think how much each family is putting into the landfill from the kitchen. Thesematerials are completely degradable in the compost pile within four to six weeks. The size will vary with the amount of material, but any size smaller than 3 feet wide by 3feet high isn’t recommended. It’s too small to heat up and decompose the materialproperly. What to Compost When those beautiful autumn leaves have blown from the trees and become unsightlybrown masses in your lawn, don’t fret and don’t burn. Simply build a pile and recycle theleaves through the composting process. When you clean up the garden, yard, flower beds or other outside areas, don’t forget thatalmost all of this plant material, too, can be added to the compost pile. I just dig a small hole in the compost pile, place the materials four to five inches deep andcover them with leaves, grass clippings or other plant materials. Then I continue thatprocess clockwise around the pile. To learn more about composting, contact your county extension agent. Containing the Pile Some type of enclosure to contain the material is best. But the sides of the bin shouldallow free air movement into the material. The best bin material is probably2-inch-by-4-inch dog fencing 3 feet high. Good compost is especially useful for improving soils that are low in organic matter.Although it does add some nutrients, the main benefit of compost is improving the soil’sphysical condition. Building the Pile Using Compost Almost all organic material may be used: sod, grass clippings, leaves, hay, straw, someweeds, chopped corn cobs, corn stalks, sawdust, newspapers, etc. Avoid weeds and grassplants that have developed seed heads. For ease of handling, it’s best, too, not to go over 5 feet by 5 feet by 5 feet. Size of Compost Pile Simple rules to follow in composting: Apply the compost to garden soil at the rate of four bushels per 100 square feet. You don’t have to build the pile all at once. Begin by spreading an 8- to 12-inch layer oforganic material over the area.last_img read more

Van Oord Completes East Anglia ONE Foundations

first_imgVan Oord has installed the last jacket foundation for offshore wind farm East Anglia ONE and delivered it to the client ScottishPower Renewables.This achievement marks Van Oord’s completion of its work for this UK wind project.As a main contractor, Van Oord transported and installed all 102 foundations.Due to be completed in 2020, East Anglia ONE is expected to supply the equivalent of more than 630,000 British households with green electricity.The work took place at a depth of more than 40 meters in the North Sea at a location where the seas are often rough, the current strong and visibility minimal. In order to be able to install wind turbine foundations in these conditions, Van Oord developed a pile-driving template.The team used this template to drive the anchoring piles for each three-legged jacket foundation into the seabed with millimeter precision. Subsequently, the wind turbine foundations could be installed in the piles.“Thanks to our ingenious working methods, the expertise of our project team and close cooperation with our partners and our client, we succeeded in installing all jacket foundations for wind farm East Anglia One smoothly and safely. We are proud to contribute to the UK’s energy transition,” said Arnoud Kuis, director Offshore Wind at Van Oord.Client ScottishPower Renewables outsourced the manufacture of the jacket foundations and anchoring piles to suppliers in the United Kingdom, Spain and the Middle East.Van Oord was involved in the logistics and transported some of the foundations to BOW Terminal Vlissingen, the storage and transshipment port for the wind turbine foundations.last_img read more
