first_img[Photo: Shervin Lainez] The Magpie Salute is the new ten-piece band of The Black Crowes’ Rich Robinson, Marc Ford, Sven Pipien, and Charity White in addition to Joe Magistro, Nico Bereciartua, Michael Bellar, John Hogg, Adrien Reju and Katrine Ottosen. The dynamic group has just released a brand-new music video for their song “Omission”—the lead single off the group’s self-titled debut album, which will be released on June 9th via Eagle Rock Entertainment. The Magpie Salute’s “Omission” is a powerful song, opening with commanding guitar licks that make way for lead vocalist John Hogg’s authoratative vocals. The rugged song is a master course in rock ‘n’ roll, creating an impressive debut for the new project. In this new video directed by Matthew Sterling, the drama of the rock-centric tune is emphasized by the crisply contrasted, black-and-white footage of the band laying into the song. As Rich Robinson said in a statement, “The overall idea was based on the light and dark aspects of the human psyche and taking a reference from the Magpie which has elements of the light and dark.”Rich Robinson Reunites Black Crowes Members For Debut Of The Magpie Salute [Watch]In the new video for “Omission,” the drama of the rock-centric tune is emphasized by the crisply contrasted, black-and-white footage of the band laying into the song. The video directed by Matthew Sterling is coherent, alternatingly direct with shots of the full band and with gorgeous kaleidoscopic overlays, exploring the power of black, white, and all the full spectrum of grays. As Rich Robinson said in a statement, “The overall idea was based on the light and dark aspects of the human psyche and taking a reference from the Magpie which has elements of the light and dark.”The Magpie Salute’s new video comes on the heels of the release of The Magpie Salute and the group’s subsequent tour promoting the new project and its album.

Georgia 4-H Impact

first_imgAs a Georgia 4-H agent, Pamela Bloch knows that 4-H can change the lives of young people. To the uninitiated, however, that impact can be hard to describe.Earlier this year, Bloch finished a paper that describes the impact 4-H can have on students based on a series of focus groups she conducted with Georgia 4-H alumni.For her study, which she completed as part of her master’s degree program in the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences’ Department of Agricultural Leadership, Education and Communication, Bloch focused on the impact of Georgia 4-H’s Project Achievement program.Project Achievement allows 4-H’ers to select areas of interest and carry out projects related to those areas. They learn about a topic — whether it be cooking, textiles or animals — and then develop, practice and deliver a presentation on that topic. The goal is to help a child decide whether they are really interested in a certain topic and whether that interest could lead to a career.“Project Achievement is such a strong component of 4-H, so I wanted to see whether there is something that connects project achievement with alumni moving into their adult lives,” she said.Bloch, who works as a Georgia 4-H agent with UGA Cooperative Extension in Gwinnett County, knew that her participation in Illinois 4-H’s Project Achievement as a child laid the groundwork for her career as an Extension agent, preparing her to speak in front of large crowds with confidence. She wanted to know how the program influenced the career paths of other former 4-H’ers.“The data came back really interestingly,” Bloch said. “When I was looking at what I was finding, Georgia 4-H Project Achievement has helped people to build friendships, develop positive habits and strengthen public speaking skills.”Two lawyers from two separate focus groups attributed their time in 4-H with developing the public skills they used on a daily basis.Bloch’s research has helped to confirm that there is a tangible connection between Project Achievement and the success that alumni attain in their careers. She found that arming kids with tools that help them to learn more and speak with confidence has helped shape the careers of 4-H’ers in Georgia.For more about the programs offered by Georgia 4-H, visit georgia4h.org.last_img read more

England’s Cope pipped by play-off eagle

first_img England’s Jack Cope was dramatically pipped in a play-off for the Irish boys’ championship when his opponent holed out for an eagle. Cope, 17, lost out to Ireland’s Mark Power, whose wonder shot from 129 yards meant he successfully defended the title at Castletroy Golf Club, Limerick. The two players tied at the end of regulation play on five-under par 283, with Cope (Minchinhampton, Gloucestershire) scoring 71 70 70 72. A three-hole play-off was required to decide the destination of the trophy. Returning to the 16th, Power struck the first blow with a birdie four while Cope found himself two behind having made bogey. However, Cope bounced back immediately when he birdied 17 as Power bogeyed and surrendered his advantage. Deadlocked playing the last, Cope was 15 feet from the pin as Power stood over his approach shot. Power’s odds were drifting but then he produced a shot in a million, and holed out to seize the title. England’s Danny Daniels (Essendon, Hertfordshire) took third place on two under with rounds of 72, 68, 71, 75. Both Cope (image copyright Still Photography) and Daniels are members of the England Golf boys’ squad. Click here for full scores 1 Jul 2017 England’s Cope pipped by play-off eagle last_img read more
