On Saturday night, Dead & Company returned to New York’s Citi Field for their second time in as many nights. Marking the eleventh show of this summer tour, Dead & Co continued to dig their heels deeper into the Grateful Dead‘s expansive repertoire, completing their first-ever trek through a staple live Dead suite (“St. Stephen” > “William Tell” > “The Eleven”).An apparent shortage of ticket scanners—in addition to a noticeably larger crowd than the previous night—delayed large portions of the crowd at the gates, forcing many to listen to the band’s opening “Sugar Magnolia”, “Mississippi Half-Step”, and “Peggy-O” from outside the stadium’s walls. Both the crowd and the band seemed to settle in by the time John Mayer took the reigns for a “Bertha” dance party.Dead & Company – “Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo” > “Peggy-O” [Pro-Shot][Video: nugs.tv]Next, bassist Oteil Burbridge stepped to the mic to deliver his tender reading of Jerry Garcia/Robert Hunter ballad “Comes A Time”. The song has become a go-to Oteil tune in the past year but packed an extra emotional punch as it returned to Citi Field, the same venue where they debuted the song last summer.A breezy “Jack-A-Roe” followed, providing a breather before a focused “Bird Song” > “New Speedway Boogie” > “Bird Song” sandwich took the band into set break flying high. After night one’s first set ended with a whimper on a somewhat disjointed “The Music Never Stopped” > “Easy Answers” segment, the ending of Saturday’s first frame was creative and flawlessly executed, a fortuitous omen for what was still to come.A thumping “Help On The Way” set the pace in the second set’s opening slot before faithfully flowing into “Slipknot!” and, finally, a truly excellent “Franklin’s Tower”, which built to a powerful peak behind Jeff Chimenti‘s fantastic organ work. It was Mayer, however, who pushed this rendition over the top, commanding the classic anthem with a palpable air of confidence that he’s dutifully built over the course of his tenure in the world of the Dead.Dead & Company – “Help On The Way” > “Slipknot!” > “Franklin’s Tower” [Pro-Shot][Video: nugs.tv]“Help”/”Slip”/”Franklin’s” have largely remained a package deal with Dead & Company, as they were for the Grateful Dead. However, not all of the Dead’s classic live suites have retained their groupings with Dead & Company. “St. Stephen” has been a staple of Dead & Co setlists since the band’s inception in 2015, but the “William Tell Bridge” > “The Eleven” that customarily followed the song in Grateful Dead days has remained notably absent.On Saturday night, after pushing through some early lyrical flubs for an energetic and exploratory “St. Stephen”, the band steered into “William Tell”, building tension behind some mesmerizing guitar work from Mayer before diving into the cathartic release of “The Eleven”. The calypso-flavored favorite, so named for its unusual 11/8 time signature, couldn’t have hit its mark more perfectly. Bob Weir led the band on vocals with a youthful energy as Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann kept the song’s complex rhythm squarely in the pocket.Dead & Co fans have wishfully waited for the unveiling of “The Eleven” for nearly three years, crossing their fingers at the end of each “St. Stephen” in hopes that this may finally be the night. With the triumphant Dead & Company “The Eleven” debut falling after an incredible “St. Stephen” jam on the 11th show of their summer tour, the moment had never been more right to unleash it. Here’s to hoping the song sticks around now that it’s finally arrived.

After coming to a full stop, the band moved into their customary fourth-quarter ballad—a stirring “Stella Blue”—before landing in a “Sunshine Daydream” coda in the closing slot, completing the “Sugar Magnolia” that started the show. Finally, the band returned to the stage for a “One More Saturday Night” encore before taking their well-earned Big Apple bows.Dead & Company’s 2018 summer tour continues on Tuesday, June 19th at Darien Lake Amphitheater in Darien Center, NY.

After four years of sisterhood, 18 graduates of Saint Mary’s will be entering their fifth year of study at Notre Dame to complete the Dual Degree in Engineering program. This program provides Saint Mary’s women the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree from the College and a second bachelor’s degree in engineering from the University. Brynne DuBois, a 2018 graduate from Saint Mary’s, said her decision to partake in the dual degree program stemmed from a desire for the experience of both a small liberal arts school and a larger university. She said the combination of the two give “a well-rounded college experience.”DuBois earned her degree from Saint Mary’s in computing and applied mathematics. At Notre Dame, she will be working toward a degree in computer science. Due to the program’s five year duration, a student holds senior status at Saint Mary’s while remaining a junior at Notre Dame. Dubois said being both a senior at Saint Mary’s and a junior at Notre Dame kept her busy.“I was in the depths of my computer science curriculum,” Dubois said. “I had so much to do. I always had exams really early in the morning.” Despite the intensity of her classes and juggling between two campuses, DuBois said that Saint Mary’s is a special place for her and that her Belles are friends for life. Similarly, Rachel Bonek, another 2018 graduate, said she will miss living with her roommate of four years, especially in LeMans Hall. It will be a nostalgic adjustment for her. As a strenuous program, various obstacles unfold for students to endure, Bonek said; aside from the dense course load and juggling of two campuses, unexpected challenges surfaced she said. For instance, Bonek said there had not been many electrical engineers in the program before her, meaning nobody was ahead of her for guidance. Bonek received her degree in physics and applied mathematics from Saint Mary’s and will be earning a degree in electrical engineering from Notre Dame. ”Now that I have one degree I can see the ball rolling,” Bonek said. “I am looking forward to Notre Dame but I will definitely miss Saint Mary’s.”Saint Mary’s alumna, Morgan Matthews, class of 2018, said the dual degree program allowed her to experience “the best of both worlds.”“When I came to visit campus, about a month before I moved in, I found out about the program and it was a two-for-one,” Matthews said. “I had to take it. It was right up my alley. I really wanted to do engineering and I really loved chemistry.” Additionally, Matthews said the program satisfied both her desire to obtain a degree from Notre Dame and to experience the community at Saint Mary’s. “There are 17 others who have graduated the Saint Mary’s portion of the program with me and we’ve become so close,” Matthews said. “I really felt like I could give my all at Saint Mary’s.”The transfer to Notre Dame this year has not quite set in for Matthews yet, she said.“It’s kind of surreal now, going into your fifth year,” Matthews said. “I’m almost just going through the motions. Once I get into the school year I think it will hit home that this is my final year.”Tags: College of Engineering, Dual Degree in Engineering, Transfer, Welcome Weekend 2018

Several outbreaks at slaughterhouses, not just in Germany but also in France, have put a spotlight on the working and housing conditions that the workers — many of whom come from Romania or Bulgaria — are put under.The German government in May banned the use of subcontractors in the meat industry in a bid to curb the controversial practice of companies using middlemen to supply workers from abroad who are more vulnerable to abuses.Although Germany has weathered the coronavirus storm better than many of its European neighbors, the slaughterhouse outbreaks have dealt a blow to its efforts to restart Europe’s top economy. Topics : Several police officers were hurt in clashes with residents of a high-rise apartment block in the German city of Goettingen who had been placed under quarantine over a coronavirus outbreak, authorities said on Sunday.The violence erupted on Saturday as a group of residents sought to break through a metal barrier installed to keep the 700 people living in the residential complex in to prevent possible transmission of the virus.Some flung stones, bottles and wooden slats at officers, the city’s police chief Uwe Luehrig told journalists on Sunday. Residents in the complex were put under quarantine on Thursday after two of them were found to be infected with COVID-19. By Friday, 120 people in the building tested positive.Goettingen is one of several outbreak clusters that have emerged in Germany since lockdown restrictions were lifted in May, including a huge cluster at a slaughterhouse in the North-Rhine Westphalia district of Guetersloh.More than 1,300 workers out of a total of nearly 7,000 have tested positive, and the region’s state premier Armin Laschet said Sunday that he “cannot rule out a blanket lockdown”.
Since its inception in 2005, it has launched seven funds and several co-investments for 170 projects with a total value of €25bn.The transaction with ABP involves the entire holdings of the DIF II fund, which had been established in 2008 for a ten-year period. It comprises projects in western Europe.The deal also includes the cross-shareholdings of twelve assets in the €800m DIF III fund, which also covers projects in the US and Canada.Among the acquired projects are the DUO government building in Groningen, the Montaigne school in The Hague, hospitals as well as part of the A15, the main access road to Rotterdam’s ports.The deal also includes €125m of solar and wind farms in France and Germany, which provide energy to 120,000 households.Commenting on the transaction, Corien Wortmann-Kool, ABP’s chair, said that the investment was important to the scheme’s ESG policy for three reasons.“We invest in local infrastructure, extend our stake in solar and wind power and also contribute to the UN’s Sustainable Development goals.”She said the package would provide “solid and stable returns for ABP’s 2.9m participants for the long term”.ABP has been actively looking for investments that combine good returns with solutions for social and environmental issues for several years.It said 57% of the acquired projects contribute to sustainable development goals.DIF said it had mandated Campbell Lutyens and Loyens & Loeff as financial and legal advisors, respectively.It added that APG, ABP’s asset manager, had requested DIF to continue managing the portfolio through a new investment vehicle for a 25-year term.APG and PGGM last week said they have developed a “taxonomy” of investment opportunities linked to 13 of the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The €389bn Dutch pension fund ABP has bought 48 projects from the Dutch Infrastructure Fund (DIF) in a €700m deal.The investment contributes directly to the civil service scheme’s target – set in 2015 – of doubling its investments in sustainable development to €58bn in 2020, ABP said in a statement.As at the end of 2016 these investments amounted to €41bn.DIF is a €4.2bn Schiphol-based independent specialist investment group, focusing on infrastructure assets in the Netherlands and abroad.
