Victor Wooten Announces 2019 Spring Tour Dates Featuring Immersive “Wooten Woods Experience”

first_imgThis spring, master bassist Victor Wooten will hit the road this spring with his Victor Wooten Band, in addition to a select group of students from his immersive Wooten Woods music and nature camps.Known for their funky/jazzy music and powerful unpredictable performances, The Victor Wooten Band—comprised of his brothers Regi Wooten and Joseph Wooten on guitar and keyboards and Derico Watson on drums—will play “a dynamic mixture of old and new music mixed with improvisations jams and classic cover songs.”In addition, fellow musicians and educators Steve Bailey, Bob Franceschini, Bob Hemenger, and a select group of students from Victor Wooten’s Center for Music and Nature will add to the extravaganza. For the first time ever, Wooten and friends will include an audience participation demonstration of the educational program that has helped and inspired countless people worldwide.Wooten is not just an accomplished musician, but also an acrobat, magician, and skilled naturalist who created Victor Wooten’s Center for Music and Nature in 2000. The 147-acre camp retreat in Tennessee is open people of all ages, and helps students focus on the relationship between music, nature, and life. Through highly interactive programs on topics such as music, nature, community, and creativity, Wooten aims to enhance students’ abilities with tools that can be used to enrich their personal lives as well. In addition to a spectacular night of music, The Wooten Woods Experience Tour will give audiences a glimpse into the magic that happens at Wooten’s Center for Music and Nature.“Music is a great way – and a safe way – to teach just about any life principle,” Wooten declares in a press release. “To be in a band, you have to listen to each other. Bands are at their best when every instrument is different, not the same. Everyone takes turns talking and everyone speaks with their own voice. A lot of times musicians might ask, ‘What would you like me to play?’ I say, ‘Listen to the music. The music will tell you exactly what it needs.’”In addition to the newly announced tour, Victor Wooten will join Bela Fleck and the Flecktones on their 2019 30th-anniversary tour, which the band promises will be “their most extensive tour in years.”See below for a full list of dates on the upcoming Victor Wooten Band/Wooten Woods Experience tour.

Cappelli: With our infrastructure we have reached our maximum

first_imgWhen asked what is the direction of future development of our tourism, Cappelli for H1 Television points out: “Let’s not compare ourselves with Turkey and similar destinations, Croatia is not and never will be. We must be aware that in the main season we can no longer expect a growth of 10-15 percent more tourists every year. In the announcement of the season, I announced that we expect growth of about 1-2 percent, revenue and revenue. Croatia has reached a maximum ” said Cappelli. Tourism Minister Gary Cappelli said in a media release that it was not yet clear whether the strategy would be written in seven or ten years. The Croatian Tourism Strategy has been written until 2020, and in 30 to 60 days the Ministry of Tourism will announce a tender for the selection of a contractor for the development of a new Croatian Tourism Strategy. Achieved 20 million tourists and 100 million overnight stays with our infrastructure is our maximum, said Cappelli and added: “Croatia must develop before and after the season and raise quality. This year I have 6 percent growth in the pre-season, and we expect growth in the post-season, booking is excellent”Said Cappelli, emphasizing that as of yesterday, we are recording 4 percent more tourists. center_img The current strategy for the development of tourism has been developed by the Institute for Tourism, and in addition to the Institute for Tourism, the consulting companies Horwath HTL and HD Consulting are certainly waiting for the new tender. Of course, one is the form, and something completely different is the content and implementation of the same. Photo: Mintlast_img read more

Joseph shows progress, but continues to struggle in Syracuse’s win over Louisiana Tech

first_img Published on December 14, 2014 at 10:32 pm Contact Phil: [email protected] | @PhilDAbb Facebook Twitter Google+ Twenty seconds was all it took for a full wave of the Kaleb Joseph roller-coaster ride.Right after feeding forward Chris McCullough for a basket, the point guard was ducking the feet of a dunking Erik McCree — a result of Joseph’s own blunder.“He’s trying to do his best at what he does,” senior Rakeem Christmas said. “He’s trying to find open people and I think he’s overthinking. We’ll go through the film and we’ll go through all the things he can’t do and we’ll be fine.”The aggression that Joseph has pledged to maintain on the offensive end bit him more than it helped him on Sunday afternoon. Although he hinted at progress by shooting efficiently with nine points in Syracuse’s (6-3) 71-69 win over Louisiana Tech (7-3) in the Carrier Dome, Joseph more so resembled the freshman point guard he is by committing a season-high eight turnovers to go along with his four assists in a full 40 minutes.And those mistakes drew the brunt of head coach Jim Boeheim’s assessment of his first-year floor general after the game.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Kaleb made some really good plays today, but he can’t make those unforced (mistakes),” Boeheim said. “A couple of them were traps — you turn it over, that’s OK. But he can’t make the unforced ones that he made … because his turnovers are right in the open where they’re scoring.”Joseph turned it over twice in the opening five minutes — the first one trying to beat the Bulldogs’ press, the second one a late bounce pass to the middle of the floor that McCree grabbed for a transition dunk.Yet through the following five minutes, Joseph responded by hitting a jumper from the free-throw line, calmly draining a wide-open 3 off a pass from Christmas, and sinking a floater from the lane.But after that were two ill-advised attempts to push the ball ahead on the break. By halftime, Joseph had efficiently hit three of his five shots, but had already surpassed his season-high with five turnovers.“Obviously he made a couple of mistakes, but that’ll happen,” forward Tyler Roberson said. “I trust him as a point guard.”SU was ahead by nine with 8:33 left, but that lead slowly dissolved as a pair of Joseph turnovers directly led to Louisiana Tech points and the Bulldogs cut into the deficit. He clanked a wide-open 3-pointer that would’ve put the Orange up by seven with 1:58 remaining.With the score tied 69, Joseph’s drive to the basket in the final 10 seconds was a feeble layup attempt that was deflected by Michale Kyser and never had a chance.Yet the mere fact that Joseph — who left the locker room before reporters arrived for postgame interviews — was on the floor with the game on the line is an improvement from last week, as slight as it is.After turning the ball over in the final minute of the Orange’s loss to Michigan on Dec. 4, Joseph only saw the floor in four seconds of the last 13 minutes of SU’s 69-57 loss to St. John’s on Dec. 6.But as a scorer, he was a useful sidekick to Syracuse’s primary scorers on Sunday — an attempt to disprove Boeheim’s statement after the SJU loss that Joseph’s not a 3-point shooter. The point guard earned his crunch-time minutes against the Bulldogs, even though he didn’t make much of them.“He’s just not really a point guard yet. He’s trying to learn how to play the point,” Boeheim said, before pausing for five seconds.“It’s going to take him a long time to.” Commentslast_img read more

Huddersfield appoint Powell as their new manager

first_img1 New Huddersfield manager Chris Powell Chris Powell has been named the new Huddersfield manager.The former Charlton boss replaces Mark Robins, who was sacked on the opening weekend of the Championship season following a 4-0 defeat at home to Bournemouth.Powell, 44, was in charge of Charlton for three years, guiding them to the League One title in 2012, but was sacked in March following a disagreement with new Valley owner Roland Duchatelet.Huddersfield chairman Dean Hoyle told the club’s official website: “We’re delighted to be able to welcome Chris to Huddersfield Town as the new manager.“We’ve taken our time over this appointment, as we wanted to give ourselves time to put in the groundwork and ensure we get the right man for the job. We believe we have in Chris.“As I said when the process began, I felt it was important that we found a manager who had ‘done it’ and Chris certainly fits that bill. He has ‘done it’ by guiding Charlton to promotion to the Championship and then finishing ninth in the 2012/13 Championship season – all achieved on a limited budget by getting the best out of his players.“Chris also has an excellent pedigree of developing young players, with the likes of Carl Jenkinson, Diego Poyet, Callum Harriott and Jordan Cousins emerging in Charlton’s first Tteam under his guidance. That is an important factor in our vision for the club.“As a player, a coach and a manager, Chris knows what it takes to succeed at Championship level. Alongside his experience with Charlton, he was also promoted out of this division three times during his playing career and has become accustomed to winning.“We’ve met Chris to discuss the job in two long meetings and both times he has impressed us with his enthusiasm, passion and knowledge of Huddersfield Town and the Championship. He is personally highly motivated and we feel he will get the best from the players. His record demands respect and we think he is the ideal man to take this club forward.“Make no mistake – throughout the football industry, Chris is held in extremely high regard. This is an excellent fit with the club and how we operate.”The former England full-back’s first game at the helm will be at home to Middlesbrough a week on Saturday.last_img read more

Swank helped Ohio Farm Bureau grow into the advocacy organization it is today, all the while keeping the economic and social well being of farm families top of mind.Among the most important legislative accomplishments that occurred during his tenure were the establishment of Current Agriculture Use Value (CAUV) program, the phase out of the personal property tax for agricultural production and in 1992 leading a coalition of business and industry groups against Issue 5, the chemical labeling law ballot initiative.During his 40-year career, Swank received the Ohio State University Board of Trustees Distinguished Service Award, Ohio Farm Bureau’s Distinguished Service Award and is a member of the Ohio Agricultural Hall of Fame, to name just a few.A U.S. Air Force veteran, Swank earned his Bachelor of Science, master’s and doctorate from Ohio State University and was recognized by the university in many ways, including the establishment of an endowed chair in Rural\Urban Policy.

You can know and teach that group that’s right in front of you, but pretty soon, they’re not here and it’s a new group. We’ve got the knowledge that there always is this parade of people, a parade of issues–it never stops and so our work is never done. ~ C.
