Phish Reminds Fans That “Most Shows Spell Something” At Dick’s, 5 Years Ago Today

first_imgFive years ago, Phish opened up their third-annual Labor Day weekend run, at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colorado. Following 2011’s legendary “S” show, during which every song played including the encore started with the letter “S”, and 2012’s gargantuan renditions of “Light” and “Sand”, fans showed up to Phish Dick’s in 2013 with high expectations, and the band thoroughly delivered.In addition to a lengthy list of other highlights, both sets on 8/30/13 wound up producing top-tier renditions of fan-favorite Phish songs—from first set’s “Icculus” and “Esther” to the debut cover of Little Feat‘s “Easy To Slip” to the eventual conclusion that Phish was continuing their tradition of setlist wordplay, as the first letters of the songs played at this show, when reversed, revealed the message “Most Shows Spell Something.”Phish’s “Most Shows Spell Something” show from 8/30/13 at Dick’s is a show that still gets love and attention. As we await Phish’s 2018 return to Dick’s this weekend, you can relive the “Most Shows Spell Something” with footage of  “Icculus” and “Oh! Sweet Nuthin’” played in Commerce City, Colorado, five years ago today.Phish – “Icculus” – 8/30/13[Video: LazyLightning55a]Phish – “Oh!

Six countries to get grants for flu vaccine production

first_imgApr 24, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – In an effort to improve developing countries’ access to potential pandemic influenza vaccines, the WHO (World Health Organization) said today it is awarding grants to six countries to help them develop the capacity to make flu vaccine.The grants of up to $2.5 million each will go to three countries hit hard by H5N1 avian flu—Indonesia, Vietnam, and Thailand—plus Brazil, Mexico, and India, the WHO said. The money will come from $10 million supplied by the United States and $8 million from Japan.The announcement comes on the eve of a WHO-sponsored conference on ways to provide developing countries with access to pandemic vaccines. The issue came to the fore in February, when Indonesia revealed it had stopped sending H5N1 virus samples to the WHO, in order to protest use of the samples by drug companies to make vaccines priced beyond the country’s reach.In late March, following a meeting with the WHO, Indonesia promised to resume sending the samples in return for a WHO pledge to develop new guidelines for sample sharing and an interim promise not to share samples with drug companies without the source country’s approval. However, the WHO has not yet reported receiving any samples.In announcing the grants today, Dr. David Heymann, the WHO’s assistant director-general for communicable diseases, said, “It is imperative that the global community works collectively to ensure more equitable access to a vaccine and other health measures in the event of an influenza pandemic. We all have a responsibility to protect global health security.”With flu vaccine production facilities, countries will be equipped to protect their people from seasonal flu, said Dr. Marie-Paule Kieny, director of the WHO Initiative for Vaccine Research. And if a pandemic emerges, the facilities can be converted to make a vaccine based on the pandemic strain, she said.It will take at least 3 to 5 years for the six countries to start producing vaccine, the WHO said. Until then, they will need help to ensure they can obtain vaccines.The meeting scheduled tomorrow will include officials from countries with human H5N1 cases, donor countries, and vaccine manufacturers in developed and developing countries.The WHO had announced Mar 22 that six projects to establish flu vaccine production facilities in developing countries were in the final approval stage, but the countries were not named at that point.See also:Mar 27 CIDRAP News story “WHO, Indonesia reach accord on virus sharing”last_img read more

Narine shackles England as Windies claim sole T20

first_imgWEST Indies produced a watertight bowling performance to strangle England and claim victory by 21 runs in the one-off Twenty20 international at Durham on Saturday.Chasing 177 for victory, the hosts looked well on course after Alex Hales blasted 43 from just 17 balls to light up the powerplay overs on a bitterly cold night at Chester-le-Street.But Sunil Narine’s 2-15 turned the screw as only Jos Buttler – who passed 1,000 T20I runs in making 30 – and Jonny Bairstow (27) offered any hope before the home side fell well short, all out for 155.In truth, England ought to have been chasing in excess of 200 after a destructive opening stand from Evin Lewis (51) and Chris Gayle – whose first six in his 40 from 21 was his 100th maximum in T20Is.Liam Plunkett (3-27) and Adil Rashid (3-25) dragged the hosts back into contention, but Eoin Morgan’s side were left to rue failures with the bat as Narine turned the screw and ensured the Windies’ white-ball stars did what their Test colleagues could not, after a 2-1 defeat in the five-day arena.Gayle’s milestone moment arrived from his seventh delivery, dispatching David Willey over midwicket, and he followed that up by crashing the next ball over the bowler’s head, narrowly missing a media box window.The best of his four maximums went like a tracer bullet over cover off Chris Jordan, before Lewis got in on the act by taking 16 from Tom Curran’s first three balls of the sixth over.Gayle’s fun came to an end after the powerplay, though, as he ambled lazily for a single and was run out smartly by a combination of Jason Roy and Plunkett.Plunkett continued to check the Windies’ progress by removing Lewis, Marlon Samuels and Kieron Pollard in his final two overs, while his Yorkshire team-mate Rashid followed suit in claiming three scalps as the tourists somewhat limped through to 176-9 from the remainder of their allocation.England’s reply got off to the worst possible start as Roy fell to the first ball, and Rovman Powell’s drop of Hales four deliveries later proved costly, the opener thumping eight fours and a six to get the hosts ahead of the rate.But he, Joe Root and Morgan fell in successive overs to leave England 68-4 – a wobble steadied by Buttler and Bairstow, their 50 stand brought up in glorious fashion as the latter drove Pollard over wide long-off for six.Buttler holed out immediately afterwards, though, and when Bairstow perished it left England’s tail too much to do as the Windies were able to warm themselves with a well-earned victory.(Omnisport).last_img read more
