Dave Matthews Band is now six shows into their summer tour, and, so far, each concert has featured a song busted out for the first time in over one hundred shows. The tour unofficially began with a 25th anniversary show in the band’s hometown of Charlottesville, VA, where they played three new songs and busted out “The Last Stop” for the first time since 2010. Within each subsequent show, “Shotgun,” “Dreamgirl,” “Dive In,” and “Break Free” were all brought out from hiding, adding an aura of mystery to any given performance. What will they bust out next?Last night, the group settled in to the Verizon Arena in North Little Rock, AR, opening up their show with “Seek Up” before playing the new song “Bismarck.” The bust out of the night was “The Idea Of You,” which had been shelved since 8/24/14 (104 shows). The song first appeared around 2006, and was in heavy rotation from 06-08, only to be performed intermittently ever since.The full show featured some great classics as well, including the “Jimi Thing” paired with a partial cover of Prince’s “Sexy MF,” and an encore that featured “Dive In” and a cover of Bob Dylan’s “All Along The Watchtower.”Watch a number of highlights from the show, including “The Idea Of You,” courtesy of Chad Jones’ playlist below.DMB resumes their tour tomorrow, May 20th, in Cincinnati, OH.

In the long history of rock and roll, there has never been another performer quite like The Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger–unless, of course, you count beloved theatrical chameleon and comedic enigma Tim Curry…Oh wait, you hadn’t heard? Turns out that in addition to his murderous dancing clowns, dastardly Muppet pirates, and cross-dressing nymphomaniacal mad scientists, Curry also does a spot-on Mick impersonation. Check out the clip below via Midnight Pulp:There…don’t you feel a little happier now? Thanks, Tim Curry.See also: Someone Removed The Music From David Bowie & Mick Jagger’s “Dancing In The Street” Video, And It’s Hilarious[h/t – Midnight Pulp]
Harvard Law School’s (HLS) impressive Langdell Hall was named for its famous patriarch, Christopher Colombus Langdell, an alumnus, professor, first dean of the School, and architect of the now ubiquitous case method.But on Friday night, beneath a long white tent that stretched almost the entire the length of the gray building next to Holmes Field, women were the focus of attention. Close to 600 of them, and a few men, gathered to celebrate 60 years of women at the School.On several video screens, images of alumnae appeared side-by-side with photos of their daughters, all HLS attendees. The shots included pictures of Jane Ginsburg, class of 1980, next to her mother, Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who enrolled at Harvard in 1956 but ultimately finished her law degree at Columbia University.“We’re all sisters in law,” said HLS Dean Martha Minow, who mingled with the crowd for close to an hour before opening the speaking portion of the dinner celebration.The weekend event, “Celebration 60,” was developed around the theme of women’s leadership and included three days of panel discussions and addresses on topics ranging from women in the judiciary to women as entrepreneurs outside the field of law.One of those entrepreneurs, who transitioned to a life in letters, was writer and lecturer Susan Cain. The 1993 HLS graduate and author of the best-selling “Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking,” delivered Friday’s keynote address, and discussed how society needs both the skills and expertise of those more comfortable in the spotlight and the strengths and talents of those who describe themselves as introverts.“This is the next great diversity issue of our time,” said Cain.While introverts tend to be more comfortable spending a quiet night at home instead of mingling at a bustling party, the phenomenon goes “way beyond socializing,” said Cain, and has major implications for innovation and leadership.According to Cain, the key factor that distinguishes the two personality types involves stimulation. Introverts, she said, feel most alive when there is “less stuff” coming at them. Great innovators such as designer Philippe Starck, investor Warren Buffett, writer J.K. Rowling, and scientist Albert Einstein all shared an important trait: the need for solitude as a way to engage in serious reflection.Einstein, said Cain, was famous for his admission that he wasn’t smarter than everyone else, he was simply willing to “stay with problems longer.” The same is true for Rowling, who was on a train staring out at a field of grazing cows when she the idea of a boy wizard suddenly struck her. Instead of rushing home to churn out a book, Rowling spent five years carefully developing the story.“It was that kind of a process, the process that is often maligned in our … ‘think-fast, act-fast’ type of culture,” said Cain, “that brought us ‘Harry Potter.’ ”Introverts also make great leaders, said Cain. People naturally gravitate to introverts because of their passion for handling one or two things, she said, and introverts know how to push themselves out of their comfort zones and “draw on their natural strengths.”Cain emphasized that there is no “one-size-fits-all” environment, with extroverts and introverts alike capable of making critical contributions in boardrooms and beyond. She encouraged introverts in the crowd to be well prepared ahead of meetings, be ready to speak up early, and be sure to schedule the quiet, reflective time they need. Respect that time, Cain said, “as intensely as you would a business meeting.”Extroverts, Cain suggested, should do things like schedule one-on-one meetings with introverts, and make an effort to reserve their own solo time.In closing, Cain urged her listeners to join the quiet revolution and “think a little bit differently about what it means to be quiet.”The following evening Minow and U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a former HLS professor, engaged in a wide-ranging discussion. Warren received the Harvard Law School Association Award.In collaboration with the celebration, the Harvard Law School Library is hosting the exhibit “Women at HLS: 60 Years of Transformation” in the library’s Caspersen Room. The show is on view through Dec. 13.
LONDON (AP) — Prince Harry has accepted an apology and damages from the publisher of British tabloid The Mail on Sunday and its online version, MailOnline, in a libel lawsuit relating to articles about his relationship with the British armed forces. Harry sued Associated Newspapers for libel over two articles published in October which claimed he had snubbed the Royal Marines after stepping down as a senior royal. Harry has served for a decade in the British army, and his lawyers said the articles caused considerable damage to his reputation and credibility with veterans. His honorary military titles have been put on hold after he and his wife, Meghan, stepped down as working royals and moved to the U.S. in early 2019.

In counties that are reporting < 70% in, Biden is running 2-3 points ahead of Clinton’s numbers from 2016. We’ve seen that happen in several states, only to have it fade away as Election Day votes crowded out early votes. However, in counties like Hennepin, where 94% are already in, Biden leads 70 to 27. Compare with 63 to 28 four years ago.There are actually several counties in MN that are blue at the moment that were red last cycle.

The UK’s Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS), Dutch pensions company PGGM and Canadian pension fund manager OPTrust are investing €350m in infrastructure debt for Globalvia Inversiones.USS is investing €150m and PGGM and OPTrust are each investing €100m in the form of a convertible loan to Globalvia Inversiones – a portfolio of 20 core infrastructure companies based in seven countries.PGGM and OPTrust are both adding to commitments of €200m each made to Globalvia in 2011, the pension funds said.USS said the structured facility added to its growing portfolio of infrastructure debt and equity investments and matched its strategy of developing private market investment opportunities that fit well with its long-term pension liabilities. Gavin Merchant, senior investment manager for infrastructure at USS subsidiary USS Investment Management Limited (USSIM), said: “Our ability to invest across the capital structure has allowed the deal team to originate and execute this unique opportunity for the scheme.”He said the Globalvia deal was an important new investment that further diversified the pension scheme’s portfolio of infrastructure assets.Globalvia was established in 2007 and is owned by Spanish groups Fomento de Construcciones y Contratas and Bankia.Completion of the deal is subject to approval by the European Commission.USSIM arranged the transaction for USS, and its in-house infrastructure team will manage the investment, which USS said substantially reduced its overall cost of investing in infrastructure.The UK pension fund said the new commitments of €350m from the three pension funds would help Globalvia expand its existing portfolio of 14 toll roads and six light rail assets.
After 16 years, 15 managers, five owners, one relegation to League One, one administration, four play-off defeats and a couple more near misses, Leeds are back. The Pride of Yorkshire, the club of Don Revie, Billy Bremner, Jack Charlton, Allan Clarke, Peter Lorimer, Howard Wilkinson, David Batty, Gary Speed and Lucas Radebe have returned to the Premier League after West Brom’s failure to win at Huddersfield on Friday night. To the list of club legends can be added Marcelo Bielsa and the unassuming Argentinian has become an honorary Yorkshireman because of his achievement in leading Leeds back to the Promised Land. Owner Andrea Radrizzani took a massive gamble when he enticed Bielsa to Elland Road in June 2018 to make him the best-paid manager in the club’s history. For all his fine football and success with Argentina and Chile, Bielsa was tagged as a nearly man because of his failure to win anything in Europe. His critics said his teams always faded in the home stretch because he ran his players into the ground, playing his energy-sapping, high-intensity possession football. Last season’s collapse when Leeds lost to spygate rivals Derby in the play-off semi-finals after topping the Championship for most of the season backed up this criticism. Despite having to sell top scorer Kemar Roofe and teen talent Jack Clarke to balance the books following this failure, Leeds shrugged off this disappointment to be even stronger this season. They have been in the top two for most of the season and have powered towards the finishing line, winning their last four games. Bielsa has also won promotion his way. He has never deviated from his passing style of football, which has inspired the likes of Pep Guardiola and Mauricio Pochettino. He never bowed to pressure from the fans to start the on-loan Eddie Nketiah or Jean-Kevin Augustin ahead of Patrick Bamford. The South American never lost sight of doing what he felt was best for the team and all his decisions have now been vindicated. Bielsa has improved every player at Leeds – even Pablo Hernandez at 35 – and in Kalvin Phillips they have a future England player. Credit must also go to Radrizzani and after a succession of owners, who failed to deliver for Leeds’ long-suffering fans, the Italian has won promotion three years after taking full control. Director of football Victor Orta has played his part in helping to land Bielsa and also for his wheeling and dealing in the loan market, which would make even Harry Redknapp jealous. Loan stars Ben White, Jack Harrison, Helder Costa and Illan Meslier have all been key to ending Leeds’ 16-year exile from the top flight. The final mention must go to Leeds’ fans and they deserve this moment more than anyone because of what they have endured since 2004. read also:Leeds on verge of promotion to Premier LeagueAt times it did seem that Leeds were damned as they suffered relegation to League One, administration and saw every home-grown talent from James Milner to Clarke sold off. Yet they fans remained loyal and their support has been the one constant during all the years of turmoil. Leeds are back and the Premier League will be all the better for their return.
