String Cheese Incident Covered ‘Spanish Moon’ With Half Of Little Feat, Fifteen Years Ago Today

first_imgThe String Cheese Incident has enjoyed a great many collaborative sets throughout their career. They’ve played with pretty much everyone, from Ms. Lauryn Hill to Skrillex to Peter Rowan and David Grisman. Back in 2001, when SCI was making a name for themselves, they managed to link up with three members of Little Feat for a memorable performance at the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles, CA.Opening with “Black Clouds” is always a good start, and there was a fun moment when longtime fan Daev Brown came on stage to help sing “Resume Man” in the first set. However, when Bill Payne, Fred Tackett and Sam Clayton were introduced halfway through set one, for a live rendition of Little Feat classic “Spanish Moon,” all bets were off. The Little Feat members stuck around for a jam session and a rendition of the long-lost favorite, “San Jose.”The second set is also some great work, with a fun “Rivertrance > Rhythm of the Road > Rivertrance” opening things up, as well as a “Round the Wheel” that incorporated a number of classics. However, the encore of Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition,” featuring Payne and Tackett, brings the show home in fine fashion.Tune in to full audio below, thanks to an uncredited source with soundboard audio (via Archive.org):SCI kicks off a “March Madness” tour one week from today, Thursday, March 10th, in Reno, NV.

Absurdity. The Harbor Master’s Office is closed on weekends, so foreign yachts cannot enter Croatia

first_imgTOTAL REVENUE OF NAUTICAL PORTS IN CROATIA LAST YEAR WAS 857 MILLION HRK CAPACITIES AND OPERATIONS OF NAUTICAL TOURISM PORTS, 2018 Average daily consumption of boaters according to the research “Attitudes and consumption of sailors in Croatia – TOMAS NAUTIKA Yachting 2017.” is 126 euros per day, and last year the total revenue of nautical ports in Croatia amounted to 857 million kuna, of which 72,2 percent related to the rental of berths.  So, if boaters want to enter Croatia, they can only do so during the week until 15.00, and on Saturday until 13.00. So much for tourism development. Insane and absurd – only in Croatia. Namely, in order for the yachts to enter Dubrovnik and its surroundings, it is necessary to perform a control by the police, customs and the Port Authority. However, the Port Authority cannot perform the control because in the middle of the season, they do not work on holidays and weekends. And not only that, but the working hours of LK – branch offices during the week are until 15.00. In order for yachts coming from the direction of Montenegro and the southern side of the Mediterranean to be able to enter the Croatian territorial sea, ie the Dubrovnik waters, they logically have to pass the border control in Cavtat. However, they cannot do that on weekends (Saturdays after 13.00 pm) and on holidays because the Port Authority of Dubrovnik – Cavtat branch office is not working, reports Dubrovnik Diary.center_img Yes, you read that right. Harbourmaster’s Office – Cavtat branch office is closed on weekends. How then to develop tourism, and especially nautical tourism? How to logically explain this fact to sailors? RELATED NEWS: But even though nautical is one of the important segments of tourism development, especially in the pre- and post-season, we are again falling on the foundations and incredible omissions. Although we try to write positive stories, unfortunately the reality and sometimes absurdity of our system encourages us to write negative news as well. Thus, a new absurdity of our tourism comes to us from the Dubrovnik-Neretva County, more precisely from Cavtat. last_img read more

Cannabis referendum: This is about recreational use, not medicinal treatment

first_imgStuff co.nz 24 August 2020Family First Comment: Ouch! The smokescreen of the Drug Foundation and Chloe are destroyed by this good doctor…. So many good statements that it’s hard to know which bit to highlight!“Suggesting that voting yes for recreational cannabis will mean better access for medicinal treatment is misleading at worst and disingenuous at best…. As a GP I feel a duty to help ensure the public is properly informed when they cast their vote, they should know about the existing availability of medicinal cannabis and the potential risks of self-prescribing cannabis for health reasons. I’m concerned that many voters have been led to believe a cannabis referendum ‘Yes vote’ equals a ‘Yes’ for medicinal cannabis. This is not the case; patients already have access to medicinal cannabis. It’s legal under the Medicinal Cannabis Scheme and currently available via prescription from doctors who can identify any potential drug interactions and adverse effects that may affect a patient.”“Admissions to psychiatric hospitals for marijuana induced psychosis will go through the roof. Over the last few years we’ve put millions of dollars into the prevention and treatment of mental illness. Speak to any health professional that works in this field and they’ll tell you the impact that marijuana has on psychosis. Increasing access will undoubtedly result in a surge in mental health admissions. Smoking cannabis comes with the same risk of lung damage as smoking cigarettes and let’s remember New Zealand has made a commitment to be smokefree by 2025.”#VoteNopeToDopeOPINION: Suggesting that voting yes for recreational cannabis will mean better access for medicinal treatment is misleading at worst and disingenuous at best.With the cannabis referendum fast approaching, arguments for and against the legalisation of cannabis for recreational use are being put forward by numerous interested parties.As a GP I feel a duty to help ensure the public is properly informed when they cast their vote, they should know about the existing availability of medicinal cannabis and the potential risks of self-prescribing cannabis for health reasons.I’m concerned that many voters have been led to believe a cannabis referendum ‘Yes vote’ equals a ‘Yes’ for medicinal cannabis.

It’s legal under the Medicinal Cannabis Scheme and currently available via prescription from doctors who can identify any potential drug interactions and adverse effects that may affect a patient.Should recreational cannabis be legalised it may become more commercially viable for local companies to also enter the medicinal cannabis market, however this is not a given. The Ministry of Health has set stringent requirements for the approval of new medicinal cannabis products and no new applications have been made to date.However, the public should be aware that legalising cannabis for recreational use isn’t a guarantee of better access to safe, tested and approved cannabis products for medicinal treatment.Dr Mark Hotu is a GP and medicinal cannabis specialist at the Green Doctors clinic.READ MORE: https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/cannabis-referendum/122437472/cannabis-referendum-this-is-about-recreational-use-not-medicinal-treatmentlast_img read more
