The Black Crowes have wrapped up their summer tour with the Tedeschi Trucks Band and The London Souls. They have announced a fairly massive Fall tour, which will be their remaining dates for 2013, and plan on taking all of 2014 off to work on solo projects. Some shows (where denoted) will be “Acoustic Shows”, while others will be full on electric. The band will be playing a 4-night acoustic run at Port Chester’s The Capitol Theater, followed up by a 4-night electric run at NYC’s Terminal 5. Here is an official statement from their website:In addition to their concerts running from September 5-December 14, the band have announced all-acoustic shows October 18, 19, 21 and 22 at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY and electric shows October 24, 26, 27 and 29 at New York City’s Terminal 5. Look for the band to end the tour on December 14 in San Francisco at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. The Port Chester, New York City and San Francisco performances will all feature very special guests; go to www.blackcrowes.com for all the latest. Tickets for the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY and Terminal 5 in NYC go on sale Friday, August 23 at 12:00 PM local time. Tickets for Bill Graham Civic Auditorium go on sale Sunday, September 8 at 10:00 AM local time.The band have confirmed that after these concerts, THE BLACK CROWES have no future plans for touring, as band members will focus in 2014 on solo releases and projects.CHRIS ROBINSON says, “This year in The Black Crowes has re-affirmed my belief in the power of music & the power of love. Can’t wait to see what the future holds, long live rock & roll!”RICH ROBINSON says, “The tour this year has been incredibly positive. From our own shows, and into the Tedeschi Trucks tour where we found our musical soul mates. Really great vibes all around. I’m looking forward to the fall for some great shows.”STEVE GORMAN said, “The tour this year has been a great run, and we’re looking forward to the fall dates in a lot of our favorite towns. The turnout and response from the fans has been overwhelming. After 23 years of doing all we could to kill this beast–and I mean we really threw everything we had at it but just couldn’t get it to die–I think it’s obvious that the best course of action is to enjoy it as much as we can.”Yesterday (8/15), THE BLACK CROWES wrapped a co-headlining summer amphitheater tour with the Tedeschi Trucks Band. They will perform this weekend (8/18) at The Peach Festival in Scranton, Saturday before heading out September 6 for various festival and headlining dates.The Black Crowes’ remaining 2013 tour dates:Thu 9/5 Cooperstown, NY Ommegang Brewery NOWSat 9/7 Arrington, VA Interlocken Festival NOWSun 9/8 Arrington, VA Interlocken Festival NOWTues 9/10 Birmingham, AL Iron City NOWWed 9/11 Fayetteville, AR Arkansas Music Pavilion NOWFri 9/13 Telluride, CO Telluride Blues & Brews NOWSun 9/15 Salt Lake City, UT Red Butte Garden Amphitheatre NOWSun 9/22 Madison, WI Orpheum Theatre NOWTue 9/24 Huntsville, AL Mark C.

A turgid first half gave way to a more enterprising second period capped by a stunning free kick from Forest midfielder Ben Osborn in the 67th minute.For all City’s territorial pressure, they were unable to seriously trouble former Ashton Gate keeper Stephen Henderson in the Forest goal and ultimately fell to an eighth successive league defeat.Lee Johnson handed a debut to German shot-stopper Fabian Giefer in one of two changes to his side who won at Fleetwood Town in the Emirates FA Cup.Elsewhere, Tammy Abraham was restored to partner Milan Djuric up front at the expense of Gustav Engvall.The City Ground was the scene of an angry protest before kick-off as hundreds of Forest supporters made their feelings known towards owner Fawaz Al-Hasawi following another manager departure last weekend.But once the action kicked off, the ill feeling gave way to a rather flat atmosphere as neither team were able to make an early impression.Osborn came close with a low shot from 25 yards that skidded wide of Giefer’s left-hand post, but that was it for the first 20 minutes.David Vaughan skied another effort from distance before Eric Lichaj hammered a shot against Joe Bryan as Forest began to up the ante, but City remained untroubled.At the other end, Johnson would have liked to have seen more of an attacking threat. Djuric was winning more than his fair share in the air, but too often City were beaten to the second ball.Mark Little went into the book ten minutes before the interval for holding back Jamie Ward before Britt Assombalonga headed the resulting free kick over the bar.Giefer, much like opposite number Henderson, had been a virtual spectator until he was suddenly called into action to make a sharp stop four minutes before the break.When Forest attacked down the left and the ball was crossed in, it just ran fractionally behind onrushing winger Matty Cash.That left the youngster having to adjust at the last minute and unable to steer his attempt on target, instead seeing his wayward shot take a huge deflection that prompted Giefer into a fine reaction save down to his right.City finally registered an attempt in the closing stages, as Aden Flint nodded down a long free kick to Djuric, but the big Bosnian striker snatched at the chance and it sailed over.Johnson’s response was to make a double substitution. Gary O’Neil and Little were the men sacrificed, with the young legs of Josh Brownhill and Callum O’Dowda introduced.Straightway there was a reaction. Brownhill won the ball on the halfway line and O’Dowda played a neat one-two before his deep cross was put behind by Jamie Paterson, who was trying to help it back into the danger zone.Then Assombalonga raced through for Forest, but Giefer got his angles right at his near post and there was no gap for the striker to find.The second half was already more eventful than the first within five minutes of the restart.Hordur Magnusson hurled a long throw into the box that took a glancing touch off a defender and dropped perfectly for Paterson on his left foot, but the ex-Forest man sent his low volley inches wide from the best chance of the game to date.City needed 17-goal marksman Abraham more involved and his influence grew around the hour mark.First he forced a save from Henderson from a tight angle, before Brownhill produced an excellent burst from midfield and combined with Paterson to cross low for Abraham, whose first-time shot was bravely blocked by Michael Mancienne.But the Chelsea loanee was soon at the centre of controversy when he looked to have been fouled right in front of Johnson’s technical area.When no free kick was awarded, Forest launched an attack and duly won one of their own in prime shooting range 25 yards out.What followed was a moment of magic. The ball was tapped to Osborn, who flicked it up for himself and crashed an unstoppable volley over the wall and into the net to leave Giefer rooted to the spot.Johnson did not hesitate to bring on Lee Tomlin, who was already stripped before the free kick was taken and duly replaced Djuric.City enjoyed no shortage of pressure as they hunted a route back into the contest, but no longer had their tallest player on the field as Forest survived a barrage of crosses.Bailey Wright nodded wide from a late O’Dowda corner, while Giefer was sent forward from an even later one as Forest pleaded for the whistle.There was still time in the last of five added minutes for Jens Hegeler to head wide from ten yards, but City were beaten.

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – With 2016 winding down, Energeticcity.ca sat down with local MP Bob Zimmer to discuss the happenings during the past year.“For me, the Pacific NorthWest announcement that the project had been approved and was moving forward and now we hear they are looking at an alternative location potentially is even more encouraging.”Zimmer says that was a highlight for 2016 but it will also continue to be a highlight moving forward into next year.Another highlight for the year was the 2 pipelines that were recently approved by Justin Trudeau. Those 2 pipelines being the Kinder Morgan Expansion Project and Line 3.- Advertisement -The local MP says it has been a positive year overall for him and his government.“For me, it has been a really positive year. We’re not in government, we’re the opposition but we’re getting a lot done. I have a couple new roles I didn’t have before, I’m critic for Asia Pacific Gateway so, we just look forward to making sure the government keeps on doing good things in the Asia Pacific and we’re still a good trading nation.”Advertisement Zimmer again talked about the Pacific NorthWest LNG project saying there are many positives to take out of recent developments.“Again, I think Pacific NorthWest. We’ve seen it be approved in different stages. We’re waiting for a final investment decision by the proponent of the project but what is encouraging to me is that an alternative site is being looked at now. We’ve heard that before just to reduce some of the costs and make it viable. To me, that is a good sign for all of us in northeastern B.C. that they are seriously looking at the project still.”Also next year will be the election of a new Conservative Leader for the Conservatives. Zimmer says he is backing one in particular but also says he would to have liked to see Rona Ambrose stay on as Leader even though Ambrose has declined and there is a party policy that once you are the Interim Leader, you can’t run to be the official leader.“That is in May. That is another thing we will be watching and looking to see. Our new Leader will be the director of our party essentially. They will take the part in a certain direction. I’m supporting Andrew Scheer. I think he can unite Conservatives across Canada and win in the next election so that will be something that will change the face of our party slightly.Advertisement It is unfortunate that we will have to see Rona step down. Rona has been a great leader and I have been an advocate of hers for a long time and she has done a great job as Interim Leader but we will move on and pick a good leader that Canadians will like as well.”
I started working in Atteridgeville prison as a religious worker about 8 months ago. They are just normal people that either had the wrong friends, or made the wrong decision.In any case, 3 weeks ago we had a revival service there, and about 580 men stood up to commit their lives to God. There are only about 780 men in that prison. What a miracle God is doing there.Jericho walls, a 24/7 prayer project, was started 5 weeks ago. In some cells every person prays every day now.And for what – for this country. They pray against crime, and they pray against moral decay. They even pray for governement and the police.In our area we have a prayer group that prays for our police and against crime here in Garsfontein. Last month crime was down 40% down. Supt Steyn attributes this to the Grace of God and the support of the community. The same happened in Roodepoort.I am staying here in South Africa and I am working for a better future for us all.And there are so many people that do more than me with less than what I have.Story submitted to SAinfo on 13 May 2008

Tottenham manager Pochettino: We’re not among Champions League favouritesby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveTottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino doesn’t regard themselves among the Champions League favourites this season.Pochettino guided Spurs on a memorable run to the final of last season’s competition, where they fell just short against Liverpool.”No one today will give us a chance to be one of the contenders to be in the final in Istanbul but that is normal,” he said. “That makes it very exciting.”We know to repeat the same campaign we need to play in our best. It is so early to talk about the final but most important is to show our quality, our squad quality and do our best.”I don’t care if people think if we are contenders or not because we went to the final and have a possibility to fight for this title.”I don’t care. I am focused on starting this Champions League in a good way.”Spurs are preparing to begin this season’s campaign, with a Group B opener at Olympiacos tonight.
