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.

West Brom tried to provoke us, claims Chelsea keeper Courtois

first_img West Brom twice came from behind to equalise, with James McClean’s late strike earning the visitors a point in a feisty contest where Diego Costa was one of the main protagonists. There were six bookings in the game and Claudio Yacob was promptly substituted by West Brom boss Tony Pulis after avoiding a second yellow card for an off-the-ball trip on Costa. Courtois felt the change was telling. “The first, Pedro wanted to come inside and play the ball, but it took a touch to Gardner and he hit a fantastic shot. “The second came after a free-kick, we tried to head it clear, the ball touched our player and the shot went in the corner again. “They were unlucky and that’s the position we are in at the moment. “They were goals maybe last year we didn’t concede because we were up top, and now they are the kind of goals you concede because you are down there. “We have to keep on fighting, we have Everton now which will be a difficult game as well, but we have to fight for every game and every point.” Chelsea were suspect in defence, but also less than ruthless up front, with Costa among those spurning chances. It was put to interim boss Guus Hiddink that Chelsea will at some point claim a handsome win with the chances they create, something which former boss Jose Mourinho also believed. “We want it to materialise,” Hiddink told Chelsea TV. “That’s my concern, a bit, that we create and we are not finishing it totally off.” Baggies boss Pulis praised Gardner for his impact, after coming on as an early replacement for James Morrison. Scotland midfielder Morrison suffered a hamstring problem, which he had nursed into the game. “Gardner came in and did really well,” Pulis said. “He filled that pocket well and can strike a ball so well. “He’s one of the best pros I’ve worked with. He works with the young players, he’s here early and always has a great attitude.” “I think he (Yacob) should have been sent off,” Courtois said on chelseafc.com. “Their manager took the player off one second after the foul so I think everybody knows that was clear. “We’re very disappointed. It was a game we wanted to win. It was a tough game with them playing only long balls, (playing for) second balls, trying to provoke players. “It was a bit frustrating. We tried to do our best, we came back, but sadly they got the second goal.” Chelsea’s frustrations – and Costa’s in particular – threatened to boil over at full-time, with the Spain striker angrily hitting the perspex tunnel as he left the field. Courtois rued the goals conceded, with Pedro losing possession for Craig Gardner’s effort and Chelsea twice failing to clear before McClean’s leveller. It left the Blues 14th in the table, 12 points adrift of their target of a top-four place ahead of Saturday’s visit of Everton. “They (the goals) were a bit unlucky,” the Belgium goalkeeper added. Press Association Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois criticised West Brom’s approach in Wednesday night’s 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge, claiming the Baggies tried to “provoke” the Blues. last_img read more

Trojans don’t warrant caution

first_img But I was convinced long ago that the Trojans’ offense is as good as it looked while ringing up 45 points over the final 35 minutes in Autzen Stadium. Saying “never’ in sports is foolhardy which is why I can envision the Trojans losing a game this season. But whoever knocks them off is going to have to keep the Trojans from scoring a bunch of points (a near-impossible endeavor, barring injury to prime personnel or three or four key turnovers) or at least score a bigger bunch of points than the Trojans do. The prospects of someone doing the latter doesn’t seem as likely, based upon what USC’s defense did to a very good offense, in hostile surroundings, Saturday. More college football It resulted in at least a couple of cautionary columns, one in a Southern California newspaper and another on a national Internet Web site, but there wasn’t much about the performance of the USC football team in its 45-13 victory in Eugene, Ore., Saturday that made me think: “This team is going down, and soon!” Sure, the offense was a bit wobbly for a about a quarter and a half as the Trojans fell behind Oregon, 13-0. But the defense, the supposed potential Achilles heel in the program’s hopes for a third consecutive national title, was stifling after the 36-yard touchdown pass over the head of a relative greenhorn (John Walker) starting his first game at cornerback. I’m not convinced the defense, a shell of what it was last season (at least personnel wise), is as good as it played against a very good Ducks’ offense Saturday. center_img If someone had suggested a month ago that I was going to spend more than three hours watching the Purdue-Minnesota game Saturday, I might have answered “Hey, my life is not that sorry!” But it was thoroughly entertaining, and the Gophers look like they might duke it out with Michigan State for the right to play USC in the Rose Bowl game. Uh … on second thought … I guess we’re more apt to see the Trojans take on Texas, Virginia Tech or Florida State in the BCS title game. As you are beginning to understand, I don’t have much faith in any of USC’s next eight opponents’ chances of keeping the Trojans out of Pasadena on Jan. 4. South Florida’s 45-14 victory over then-No. 9-ranked Louisville Saturday easily qualified as the “You’ve got to be freakin’ kidding me!” score of the weekend. Mind-boggling stat of the weekend: Michigan State’s offense had 30 gains of 10 or more yards in the 61-14 victory at Illinois. H.S. gridders A year from now, if all goes to plan, he’ll be representing the 5th District on the Long Beach City Council. For the time being, though, David Radford is the newest inductee into the Millikan High Hall of Fame. Radford, the Rams’ head football coach during the 1985-90 seasons, was honored at halftime of Millikan’s eventual 30-23 loss to visiting Downey Friday night. Radford has also had coaching and teaching stops at Poly (1964-68), Long Beach State (1969-70), Jordan (1971-76) and St. Anthony (1991-95) to go along with his 13-year stint at Millikan, where he also served as Dick DeHaven’s assistant for eight years. He’s strictly a football observer now, but the soon-to-be 67-year-old (in December) isn’t inflicted with any loss of energy or ambition. He’s an associate athletic director at Hope International University in Fullerton, where he oversees a tennis program that he thinks has a chance to make a splash on the NAIA scene this season, and is now dipping his toe into the political waters. “I taught government forever, and my pulse is in the 5th District,” he said. “The people in the district know me, and I feel like I’m in a good place with my life now.” So, why not? His motto? “Common sense for the common good,” he said. It sounds logical to me. Basketball stuff The UCLA Bruins will host what promises to be one of the most tantalizing nonconference games of the 2006-07 season. On Dec. 23 of next year, the Ohio State Buckeyes expected to be led by Greg Oden will visit Pauley for the first of a two-game series that was agreed upon recently. CBS will nationally broadcast both games (the return match will be in Columbus in December of 2007). Oden is a 7-footer at Lawrence North High in Indianapolis and is projected as the No. 1 pick in the 2007 NBA draft, assuming he’s ready to call it a college career after just one season with the Buckeyes. Ohio State is also expected to sign two other likely McDonald’s All-Americans in November in Oden’s high school teammate, 6-1 Mike Conley, and 6-4 Daequan Cook (Dayton Dunbar). “Hoops for Hope” proved to be an entertaining Sunday night of basketball at Ocean View High. Organized by Steve and Meg King of Huntington Beach, the parents of Mater Dei standout junior Taylor King, the game was played to benefit some of those displaced from their Gulf Coast homes by Hurricane Katrina. The “Black” team knocked off the “White’, 136-123, in a game in which, as is usually the case, “defense’ was defined by a few spectacular shots (most of those by 6-9 Alex Stepheson of Harvard-Westlake while playing for the Black) or steals (a few of those by Brandon Jennings of Dominguez, also on the Black squad). Chase Budinger, a 6-7 forward at La Costa Canyon High in Carlsbad who committed to Arizona on Aug. 17, had a game-high 32 points while missing on just 3-of-18 shots from the floor for the Black. Stepheson, who visited Connecticut over the weekend and is also considering North Carolina, Georgia Tech, Washington and UCLA, had 23 points on 10 field goals eight of which were dunks. Malik Story, a sophomore from Artesia, added 16 points while hitting four 3’s for the Black. Forward Matt Shaw (Fairfax) led the White with 25 points, while James Keefe of Santa Margarita (who will sign with UCLA in November), and Patrick Christopher of Dominguez (who re-confirmed his commitment to sign with Cal), added 19 and 16 points, respectively. Deon Thompson, a 6-8 center at Torrance who is considering signing with UCLA, North Carolina, Kentucky, Gonzaga or Connecticut, had seven points for the White. But he looked very polished during the four or five times the ball was actually passed to him in the low post. USC, which got a commitment from Daniel Hackett, a 6-4 junior at St. John Bosco whose father, Rudy Hackett, is now a Trojans’ assistant for Tim Floyd, last week, got another commitment from an underclassmen when Story said he plans to eventually (in November of 2007) sign with USC. The 6-5 Story and Hackett are teammates on Pat Barrett’s Southern California All-Stars team, which also includes Taylor King, Brandon Jennings and Chase Budinger, among others. Ken Story, the father of the Artesia sophomore, said Sunday night that neither he nor his son has been questioned by anyone from the ABC Unified School District concerning its investigation into possible CIF rules violations by the school’s basketball program. Ken Story also said that Artesia coach and athletic director Scott Pera, placed on administrative leave by the school district during the investigation, hasn’t been allowed to speak to his players or the players’ parents since classes started several weeks ago. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Humboldt State softball returns home, sweeps doubleheader against Dominguez Hills

first_imgMcKinleyville >> With a Cal State Dominguez Hills team and its California Collegiate Athletic Association-worst ERA rolling into town, there was plenty of potential for the potent Humboldt State offense to do some serious damage.That was certainly the case in the Jacks’ first game back within Humboldt County lines.Led by senior Breonna Bejaran’s two-home run day, the No. 1-nationally ranked Jacks exploded for 15 hits as the top of the Humboldt order did major damage from the first inning …last_img

South Africa to launch ‘war on poverty’

first_imgThe percentage of South Africans living on less than a 2007 benchmark of R462 a month had decreased from 58% in 2000 to 48% in 2005. Source: BuaNews Briefing reporters in Cape Town on Sunday on a three-day Cabinet meeting that took place in Pretoria last week, Mbeki said the campaign would kick off in August, focusing on the most deprived wards in all nine provinces. The strategy would include motivating each household to make its “own contribution” to its struggle against poverty. According to a Development Indicators report released earlier this month by the Policy Co-ordination and Advisory Service unit in the Presidency, income growth among South Africans, combined with the expansion of social grants, had resulted in a rise in income among the poorest of the population since 2000. Taking population increases into account, the number of South Africans lifted out of poverty since 1996 had reached 9-million, the report found, with about 12-million now supported by one or more of the various forms of social grants provided by the government. The teams would go “from household to household” in the identified areas in order to make the most direct, helpful interventions to take these households out of poverty, Mbeki said. The most deprived households identified in the poorest wards would be visited periodically during the campaign by a team of professionals and community workers to identify their specific needs, accelerate their access to government services, and provide safety nets. 28 July 2008 South Africa is to launch a nationwide campaign to reduce poverty among the country’s poorest citizens, President Thabo Mbeki said on Sunday. Mbeki said that last week’s Cabinet meeting had noted that South Africa was on track towards achieving its medium-term goals of halving poverty and unemployment by 2014. The long-term goal was for South Africa’s poorest households to receive assistance and support in a co-ordinated and sustained way, with a national “war room on poverty” leading the campaign from the office of the Deputy President. “Even though many challenges still need to be tackled, attaining high and sustained economic growth is and will continue to be a key part of our strategy to achieving these medium-term goals,” Mbeki added.last_img read more
