As The Crow Flies Closes 2018 With Marcus King Band At The Cap [Video/Photos]

first_imgLoad remaining images As The Crow Flies brought their 2018 full circle as the band laid down two brilliant performances at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York; the same venue that saw the band take flight for the very first time last spring.The two shows at that Capitol Theatre to close out the year proved to be somewhat of a validation of what this resplendent band is capable of. The performances this time around were much more fluid and engaging compared to the band’s initial live effort at the venue back in April of 2018.This probably shouldn’t come as a surprise considering the fact that the members of As The Crow Flies had a six-week tour to not only learn to play the material with one another but also get to know each other personally off the stage as well.Night one at the Capitol Theatre was a rousing affair that primarily offered fans a selection of tunes that the band had played throughout the course of their inaugural tour.Chris Robinson set the tone for the Black Crowes love-in from the outset by getting things started with a rousing rendition of the Joe Cocker classic, “Feeling Alright.” The song had the entirety of the sold-out audience singing and swaying in unison with the frontman as he delivered some of his trademark dance moves, while also engaging with the crowd with a few head bobs, peace signs and a myriad of other nods to the faithful in attendance.The first evening’s initial surprise came in the form of the band’s performance of “Goodbye Daughters of the Revolution”, from the often underappreciated Black Crowes record, Warpaint.The band had largely stayed away from the Crowes’ later years catalogue on their initial tour, thus fans had to be excited that one of the gems from that era found its way to the lighted stage at least one more time.Admirers of perhaps the most revered Black Crowes record, Southern Harmony and the Musical Companion, surely must have been elated with the remainder of night one’s setlist, as nearly half of the remaining selection of songs performed on the evening came from that very record.The clear highlight on night one had to be the nearly twenty-minute take on the Black Crowes live staple, “Wiser Time.” The front half of the song featured keys player Adam MacDougall laying down an extended funky jam that seamlessly bled into Marcus King’s jaw-dropping solo.King, whose own outfit The Marcus King Band, opened up both nights at the Capitol Theatre, is perhaps one of this country’s most inspiring and talented young musicians.I use the word musician here because the twenty-two-year-old wunderkind isn’t just a generational guitar player, King is also an equally gifted songwriter and vocalist in his own right.The Marcus King Band’s latest release, Carolina Confessions, is a soulful, blues-driven rock and roll masterpiece that signaled King and his bandmates are destined for greater things throughout 2019 and beyond.As King’s solo on “Wiser Time” wound down, it effortlessly segued into Audley Freed’s time in the sun. The former Black Crowes guitarist reminded everyone in attendance exactly why he’s one Nashville’smost respected players as well as why superstars such as Sheryl Crow hand pick Freed to tour and record with.It would be a crime not to mention the talent that former Black Crowes and Gov’t Mule bass player Andy Hess brings to the table as a musician. Hess plays with a thundering force while also possessing a stage presence that adds more to As The Crow Flies live shows than most other bassists could ever hope to emulate.The band closed out night one at the Capitol Theatre with the Rick Derringer classic, “Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo,” a song which had served as the encore on a number of As The Crow Flies initial tour dates throughout the course of 2018.Although the show seemed to be on the shorter side, fans were buzzing about the night’s brilliance and talking to one another about what night two may have in store as they smiled and danced their way outside of Capitol Theatre’s doors and into the somewhat chilly and damp streets of Port Chester.Heading into the second evening of Black Crowes music, most die-hard fans were likely hoping for a set list that either featured songs the band had not played the previous night or even ever before.As The Crowes Flies didn’t disappoint in this regard as most of the songs that were featured on night two fell into one of these two aforementioned categories.Likely the second evening’s biggest surprise had to be the cover of the Allman Brothers staple, “Revival,” a song the band never played as a collective until New Year’s Eve in Port Chester, New York.Other highlights included a rambunctious take on the Rolling Stones’ “Jumping Jack Flash,” soulful renditions of Black Crowes classics such as “Descending” and “Sister Luck,” as well as the one-two punch of Deep Purple’s “Hush” and the Marshall Tucker Band’s, “Take The Highway,”the later of which served to close out the two-night celebration of the Black Crowes’ legacy at the Capitol Theatre.It’s impossible to know if As The Crow Flies will ever take flight again. Every musician in the band is tied to a variety of musical projects that would seemingly make it difficult for the band to see the lighted stage again in 2019.Should the two performances in Port Chester, New York end up being the swan song for As The Crow Flies, the band undoubtedly left their die-hard fan base with a litany of musical memories that should keep them all singing, smiling and dancing for decades to come.As The Crow Flies 12/31/18[Video: Relix Channel]Setlist: As The Crow Flies | Capitol Theatre | Port Chester, NY | 12/30/18Feelin’ Alright, Sting Me, Hotel Illness, Non-Fiction, Goodbye Daughters of the Revolution, Good Friday > Almost Cut My Hair, My Morning Song, Wiser Time, She Talks To Angels, Thorn In My Pride, Sometimes Salvation, Jealous Again, RemedyE: Rock & Roll Hootchie KooSetlist: As The Crow Flies | Capitol Theatre | Port Chester, NY | 12/31/18Remedy, Sting Me, Twice As Hard, Good Morning Captain, High Head Blues, By Your Side, Siater Luck, Thorn In My Pride, Revival, Descending > Jumping Jack Flash, Wiser Time, (Only) Halfway To Everywhere, Jealous Again, Hard To Handle > HushE: Take The Highway Photo: Robert Fortecenter_img Photo: Robert Fortelast_img read more

Chile Emphasizes the Importance of Women in Peacekeeping Missions

first_imgBy Guillermo Saavedra/Diálogo January 29, 2019 Through the Joint Peacekeeping Operations Center (CECOPAC, in Spanish), the Chilean Joint Chiefs of Staff concluded 2018 with a course addressing the role of women in United Nations (UN) peacekeeping missions. The international course Women, Peace, and Security: Gender Integration in Peacekeeping Operations was conducted December 3-7, at CECOPAC in Santiago, Chile. Forty-five units from security and armed forces of the region, including representatives of Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Guatemala, El Salvador, the United States, and Uruguay, took part in the course. Participants learned about gender issues, cultural diversity, human rights, and negotiation, among other topics. The objective of the activity was to share basic and fundamental knowledge on gender perspectives in peacekeeping missions to provide the proper tools and skills to the personnel deployed in these operations. The course also emphasized the role of peacekeeping personnel as protectors of the most vulnerable members of the population—women and children. “In the last two years, this has been a particularly relevant issue for us,” Chilean Navy Captain Marco Villegas Zanón, CECOPAC director, told Diálogo. “Basically, the course’s purpose and focus is to prepare monitors in these fields.” Troop requirement The course was conducted as part of the Global Peace Operations Initiative (GPOI), a program of the U.S. Department of State that seeks to reinforce partner nations’ capabilities in the execution of peacekeeping operations. CECOPAC conducted the third edition of the course with the support of U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) through the Security Cooperation Office at the U.S. Embassy in Chile. “U.S. involvement is present in all areas,” said Capt. Villegas. “Professors come from the United States; they’re involved in the coordination of activities and program design, logistics, and the possibility of bringing foreign students to the country.” The course is the result of a partnership among GPOI, SOUTHCOM, the U.S. Navy’s Naval Postgraduate School, and CECOPAC that dates back to 2013. The activity also supports UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace, and Security, and is a requirement for troops that deploy in peacekeeping operations. “[Resolution 1325] extends the traditional concept of security to include more citizens, especially women and people who weren’t traditionally considered part of the security structure that a country was supposed to provide,” said Guillermo Holzmann, a Chilean defense and international affairs analyst. “It suggests who should provide those conditions, and who should be the participants, and this is where it advises on the inclusion of women […], in humanitarian situations requiring security conditions that will be much more efficient and effective when the gender perspective is addressed.” Better prepared The course was taught in a conference format, with several modules distributed over the course of five days. Activities included lectures on concepts of organizational change, stress management, and intercultural communication, among others. “The course addresses a full range of risks, from marginalization of women to sexual and gender-based violence,” Alex Concepción, GPOI assistant program manager at SOUTHCOM, told Diálogo. “We take the perspective that peacekeepers who understand the risks to women develop intervention skills and apply those skills to realistic scenarios. They are better prepared to act morally and effectively when they encounter a genuine threat in a conflict situation.” According to Concepción, CECOPAC played an important role throughout the initiative and demonstrated its regional leadership in preparing security and armed forces on women’s empowerment issues. He added that Chile showed great interest in helping regional countries to deploy in peacekeeping missions. “At a regional level, Chile is very progressive in these areas,” Concepción said. “Chile was the first country in Latin America to create and develop a National Action Plan for Women, Security, and Peace, which has inspired other countries in the region, [such as] El Salvador and Paraguay, to work on their own plan.” “I would like to emphasize the opportunity that the GPOI initiative gives us to teach these topics to national and foreign personnel,” Capt. Villegas concluded. “Also, [I want to emphasize] the fact that we can contribute to training people throughout Latin America.” The course was first taught in Uruguay, in 2015. It was carried out twice more in 2018, in Peru in May and in Chile in December. CECOPAC plans to conduct the same course in El Salvador in 2019.last_img read more

Mistakes in season opener force Syracuse defense to work on slides, communication

first_img Published on February 20, 2013 at 1:52 am Contact Jacob: [email protected] | @Jacob_Klinger_ Syracuse’s defensive slides were too sloppy, communication was weak and 16 goals were just too many.Even when the Orange double-teamed Albany, the Great Danes’ attack had its way Sunday.“We knew their attack was good, but I don’t think we were expecting them to come out firing as hot as they did,” sophomore defender Brandon Mullins said. “Kind of being surprised like that, it just threw us off-guard the whole game.”After allowing eight first-half goals, the Orange played from behind the rest of the game, and Albany continued to score from close range on blown defensive coverages. Syracuse’s defense must regroup when it hosts Army this weekend in the Carrier Dome.The Black Knights play a more physical attack that will look to fire from outside, different from an Albany team that attacked in close. Six-foot-3, 231-pound attack Garrett Thul leads the unit. In three games, he has 12 goals on 45 shots. Midfielder John Glesener will rotate in and out of attack.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“They switch it up, they go back and forth with it, so you got to be ready for that,” SU head coach John Desko said. “Those are two big, strong physical players who can really shoot the ball hard from the outside.”Thul and Glesener will break through double-teams and slides, Desko said. And while the Orange can’t fully plan for physical dominance, it can scout better in preparation and talk better on the field.Albany’s game-winning goal Sunday came off of a missed slide. Defender Brian Megill slid to cover Lyle Thompson in the first minute of the second overtime, leaving Miles Thompson open on the crease. No one covered for Megilll when a midfielder should have checked down.SU goaltender Bobby Wardwell said he thinks it came down to communication. Two or three players moved to cover Lyle Thompson, and a couple Great Danes were left open on the backside.Mullins chalks the defeat up to more than communication. Even when the Orange could get two defenders on an attack, it couldn’t stop the quick hands and feet of the Thompsons.SU will have to push out more on defense and tie up the hands of the Black Knights shooters. Mullins expects a physical battle throughout with picks to free up Thul. Still, Army presents a more manageable challenge.“I have a feeling they’re going to be a little more traditional,” Mullins said. “I think our defense will be able to adjust a little more to what they’re used to.”Army will be better scouted, too. Megill rattled off Thul and Glesener’s shooting stats after watching film of Army’s victories over Virginia Military Institute and Massachusetts. Mullins used the game tape from SU’s loss to look for adjustments.Even with the tinkering and improvements, SU’s defense is expecting a long, brutal fight in front of a sizable pro-Black Knights crowd.“There’s no coming-to-the-Dome jitters, they’re used to it, they come here every year,” Megill said. “And they never quit, I mean, they’re Army. They’re the Army.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
