Watch Dean Ween And Father John Misty Jam Backstage At Bonnaroo

first_imgBonnaroo is known for its collaborative spirit. When artists arrive at the festival, its understood that sit ins and jam sessions are not only suggested, they are expected. Sometimes the artists just want to keep playing when their sets are over, in backstage situations that, with so many artists from all walks of life on The Farm, can be once-in-a-lifetime.That’s just what happened this Sunday, when Ween and Father John Misty played back-to-back sets to close out the Which Stage. While Dead & Company played their epic two-set finale on the What Stage, Dean Ween and Father John Misty jammed out in Ween’s dressing room. Ween plays bass, and Father John plays drums, a throwback to his days in Fleet Foxes. With Kurt Vile and others looking on in the background, it’s awesome to see these musicians playing for the joy of playing.See below for a video of this rare performance!last_img read more

Getting around gluten

first_imgThe Harvard Allston Education Portal on Thursday hosted a workshop examining the effects of gluten on health, with Jennifer Zartarian of Cambridge Health Associates answering questions and acting as a guide through the latest research.Zartarian started the workshop by asking if anyone in the group had celiac disease, a serious condition connected to gluten, a substance found in cereal grains, particularly wheat.Bibiane Baptiste, who works in Harvard Alumni Affairs and Development, was diagnosed with the disease in 1995. Baptiste said her digestive system was “always bad” for as long as she could remember. Dull pain in her stomach escalated when she ate fried or spicy foods. Her reactions were so severe her color changed, and she couldn’t walk. She also had problems with fibromyalgia. “I felt like I was dying,” she said, until finally she was diagnosed and adjusted her diet.“It’s easier now,” Baptiste said, because there are so many gluten-free options on the market. But, she said, living gluten-free can still be a challenge and “very expensive.”Baptiste’s story is a typical one, said Zartarian. Many people also experience fatigue, depression, and numbness, among other conditions, as a result of celiac or gluten sensitivity. In addition, research suggests celiac sufferers are at greater risk of developing lymphoma, she said.Gluten shows up in everything from bouillon cubes to “natural flavors,” besides being in many pastas and breads. According to Zartarian, “One percent of the population has celiac, and 6 percent has gluten sensitivity,” or some type of reaction to gluten.More awareness is helping, she said. The Food and Drug Administration recently ruled that to be labeled “gluten-free,” a food must contain less than 20 parts of gluten per million, because “any more than that risks irritating the gut lining.”Gluten-free grains include brown rice, quinoa, amaranth, wild rice (which is actually a grass), corn, and gluten-free oats. These can usually be found in the bulk section of health food stores, and make a nice addition to meals. Slow cooking or soaking grains overnight makes them easier to digest, Zartarian said.Gluten-free grains include brown rice, quinoa, amaranth, wild rice (which is actually a grass), corn, and gluten-free oats. These bags of wild rice were handed out to attendees. Jon Chase/Harvard Staff PhotographerShe also suggested adding nuts, or toasting grains in the pot prior to adding water to bring out their natural, nutty flavors. Turning to baking, she recommended combining rice flours with other gluten-free flours, such as garbanzo.Finally, Zartarian encouraged the group to experiment, and made sure everyone left with recipes.last_img read more

Student government to host mock election on day before national election

first_imgNotre Dame student government will hold a mock election for the school Monday, before Election Day Tuesday. Due to COVID-19 concerns, voting will be online through Qualtrics.Student government will send out an email to the entire student body at 7 a.m. Monday, and the virtual polls will close at 6 p.m.Riya Shah, director of national management in student government, said a mock election gives students an opportunity to get to know what it is like to be civically engaged. At the same time, it allows international students and undocumented students who cannot cast their vote the chance to experience the American electoral system.“Since this is the first presidential election for everyone on campus, it’s very interesting, and … Even the seniors who I do know have mentioned that they don’t think anything like a real mock election happened last time around,” Shah said. “I know that a lot of other universities and high schools have this in the U.S, and I feel that this mock election would be a great opportunity to understand where the student body stands.”Unlike the U.S. presidential election, the student government mock election will not be following the electoral college system.“We initially proposed that each dorm would not represent a different state and would be given a certain number of electoral votes,” Shah said.After talking with students who expressed concerns about having their entire dorm lean to one party, Shah said they decided not to use the electoral college system in order to be more inclusive.Shah said they decided that a popular vote would be more appropriate, with whichever candidate receiving the most votes winning the mock election.“However, we are going to try and calculate the electoral college votes as well … and report that as well to see if the results from the popular vote would align with the electoral college,” Shah said.Instead of analyzing the specific results of each dorm, Shah said they will look at trends across different areas on campus, such as South Quad, North Quad, West Quad and more.There will also be an election night event hosted by College Democrats, College Republicans, ND Votes, BridgeND and student government to talk about the implications of the mock results, and what it means for Notre Dame’s campus and civil discourse.“Through the mock election, it is our intention to foster civic engagement, mobilize students to political activity and promote fruitful dialogue,” senior and student body president Rachel Ingal said.Ingal said by holding the mock election, student government also strives to help students be more aware of this historic election.“We hope that the exercise will serve as a launchpad for person-to-person conversation, with the goal of empathetic understanding,” Ingal said. “It is our aim to keep our campus aware of the national moment and its importance, in order to be discerning citizens who advocate for the common good.”Tags: 2020 election, mock election, Student governmentlast_img read more

Towns, city deserve fair share of sales tax

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion There’s a real issue this election that the Schenectady County Legislature has truly hoarded a disproportionate share of the sales tax dollars and is shortchanging every town and the city of Schenectady.Every legislator up for election this year has failed the people who have voted them into office with the exception of Glenville Supervisor Chris Koetzle and Councilman Jim Martin — they’re the only ones speaking up. And if we want our fair share, we need to have a clean sweep of the career politicians, especially those who are double-dipping from public dollars on the county payroll.In 2004, Schenectady County sales tax revenues were approximately $48 millio. Since then, these revenues have grown to approximately $98 million. Niskayuna, Glenville, Rotterdam and the city’s share have practically remained stagnant, while these revenues have more than doubled. The bottom line is every local portion of your property tax bill could be reduced by up to 50 percent.Do you want your fair share? Vote Row B and send a message that we are mad as hell and not gonna take it anymore.Peter GuidarelliSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:Anderson starts, but Dodgers finish off NLCS winTroopers: Schenectady pair possessed heroin, crack cocaine in Orange County Thruway stopSchenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsSchenectady NAACP calls for school layoff freeze, reinstatement of positions As a former Schenectady city councilman and county legislator, I can speak from experience regarding the need for our elected city, town and county officials to fight for the people who elect them into office.last_img read more
