Watch Chicago Farmer Sow The Seeds Of Love At Summer Camp [Videos]

first_imgSinger-songwriter Cody Diekhoff—also known as Chicago Farmer—has made his sets at Summer Camp Music Festival don’t-miss affairs. Chicago Farmer finds strength in Diekhoff’s unique mix of wisdom, wry observations, and effortless ability to relate and connect with his listeners. Chicago Farmer writes songs in the vein of the greats in his field, Arlo Guthrie and John Prine, though his work comes from a singular, small town point of view that is refreshingly honest and surprisingly universal.While many folks think of huge stages, wild light shows, and walls of sound when drawing a mental image of Summer Camp, there is a long-standing home for acoustic music, especially the much-anticipated sets by Diekhoff outside the Red Barn. Though his set on the Campfire Stage took place on Scamp’s last day in blistering 95-degree weather with literally no shade to be found, the crowd packed in to hear this folk troubadour tell his tales and pick his tunes. As always, Chicago Farmer played a fun mix of his classics and several new tunes.We’ve selected four of our favorites to embed below, but there are more from the show online including “All In One Place”, “Indiana Line“, and “Mother Nature’s Daughter“, which you can check out onRex-A-Vision’s YouTube channel. You can check out highlights from Chicago Farmer’s Summer camp set below, including his cover of Tom Petty‘s “Freefallin” and the uplifting ballad of perseverance, “Dirtiest Uniforms.”“Free Fallin’”“Dirtiest Uniforms”“$13 Beers”“Backseat”last_img read more

‘Chief’ set for long overdue win

first_imgFormer top-class campaigner COMMANDING CHIEF should score a long overdue win in today’s competitive looking overnight allowance race over 1300 metres to be contested by 13 starters at Caymanas Park.COMMANDING CHIEF last won the grade one Prime Minister’s Stakes in a titanic tussle with PERFECT NEIGHBOUR over 2000 metres on Independence Day 2014 (August 6), and although yet to win another race since, has run some useful races in defeat, even though sparingly raced.When he last competed, in open allowance company on January 23 for new trainer Spencer Chung, the eight-year-old gelding by War Marshall out of She Knows Beau ran a decent race behind the progressive filly LONG RUNNING TRAIN and CAMPESINO over a mile, finishing six lengths sixth after racing prominently in second entering the straight.Having worked well in preparation for today’s encounter and stepping down to overnight company in the process, COMMANDING CHIEF has a glorious chance of reliving past glories.MOST ACCOMPLISHEDHe is easily the most accomplished in the field, following big-race wins in the St Leger and Gold Cup when trained by Everal Francis, and with three-time champion jockey Dane Nelson sticking with the ride, the hint should be taken.Still, it won’t be a walk in the park for the veteran campaigner as he faces some very fit opponents in SHINING LIGHT, MIRACLE STAR, RED FLAG, EDISON and HOVER CRAFT, all ideally suited to the distance.The Wayne DaCosta-trained HOVER CRAFT (Omar Walker up) not only won in grade one company last season, but was second to FRANFIELD in last November’s Superstakes, and with 1300 metres not too sharp for him, is a worthy opponent. The same can be said of the Gary Griffiths-trained SHINING LIGHT, a recent winner who will love every inch of this race.However, COMMANDING CHIEF has never had it this easy in years and thus gets the vote.Other firm fancies on the 10-race programme are SUPERTRONICS (knocking at the door) to go one better in the second race; stable-companion BIG GEORGE to repeat in the third; GOLDEN GLORY in the sixth; down-in-class BOLD AVIATOR in race seven; and the speedy OPTIMUS to finally deliver in the eighth race for maiden four-year-olds and up over 1000 metres round.last_img read more

first_imgRed Bluff >> Red Bluff Joint Union High School District Superintendent Todd Brose compared the wind damage the track at the school sustained in November to a carpet in a house being ripped up. “It was already a worn track,” Brose said.

Monetizing Speed: AP May Charge for 30 Min Lead

first_imgAfter a summer of establishing blogger guidelines and fair use, the Associated Press is considering charging online customers for a 20-30 minute head start on breaking news stories. According to a report by the AP’s Jeremiah Marquez, the AP’s chief executive Tom Curley made the announcement at the Hong Kong Foreign Correspondents’ Club. Curley suggested that because the AP licenses stories to major hubs like Google, Yahoo and Microsoft’s MSN, these outlets would be willing to pay for scoops. In late July, ReadWriteWeb covered the AP’s controversial introduction of a digital-permissions framework The service alerts the outlet every time a blogger uses AP materials to ensure that content is being used and credited properly. While the news registry effort was met with blogger uproar, this new attempt to monetize breaking stories may meet with different reactions. Writes Marquez, “Tom Curley did not clarify how a product that provided some news earlier would work or specify the target customers for the potential new service.” However, more than anyone, we know the value of this service. Independent bloggers continually struggle to scoop rival outlets to the point that embargoed releases are often broken. Some outlets have even chosen to forgo embargoes all together; however, ReadWriteWeb makes every effort to honor them. To a tech blogger, a 30 minute lead may mean the difference between the front pages of Digg, Techmeme and major traditional outlets, or appearing like a pack journalist. The groups that purchase a 30 minute lead on tech stories will solidify a huge influx in feed subscribers and mobile app downloads and as a result, gain more favor with advertisers.

Crisis looms in international cricket: Brearley, McCullum

first_imgLondon, Jul 4 (PTI) Mike Brearley and Brendon McCullum have warned of “a looming potential crisis” in international cricket and stated the game could soon reach a “point of no return” as it struggles to compete with T20 leagues across the world. Former England captain Brearley, in his final meeting as chairman of the MCC World Cricket Committee, warned that players “from countries lacking the funds to pay their top players well” will see those players “choose these domestic tournaments ahead of making themselves available for their countries.” They led calls for a “rethinking of the distribution model in international cricket”, besides urging the ICC to build on their “conceptual plans” for a Test Match Championship. “For international cricket to flourish, competitive levels need to be close and teams need to be able to field their best players. The committee is worried that with the spread of privately owned T20 leagues and the rapid increase in remuneration, more players from counties lacking the funds to pay their top players well will choose these domestic tournaments ahead of making themselves available for their countries,” Brearley was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo. “The more this happens, the greater the threat to international cricket, not only to Test cricket, but also to ODI and T20s. “The committee is aware of the gradual encroachment of domestic T20 leagues into crickets schedule and the threat this poses to Test cricket. Whereas a few years ago ICC was willing to accept a window for the IPL, now the question is: do we need windows for Test cricket?” Former New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum, who also sits on the committee, said the absence of AB de Villiers from the South Africa side for the Test series against England was “another red-flag moment” for Test cricket and warned of a “tipping point” for the game as a whole. “I dont see T20 leagues as the devil, by any stretch,” McCullum said. “But its how we continue to make sure Test cricket continues as an important game at the same time. Thats where theres probably a tipping point: whats more important? These leagues or the international game? “The actual health of the game is outstanding but the perception in some parts of the world is that the entertainment of Test cricket is diminishing. So were trying to ensure there is context to every Test and we feel the Test Championship would bring that in and we encourage the ICC to continue to bring this to the table.” Brearley termed de Villiers absence a “wake-up call”. The MCC World Cricket committee has, over recent years, argued for a revision of the sports laws which have largely been incorporated into the ICC Playing Regulations.
