Watch Dean Ween Join Claypool Lennon For The Best ‘Southbound Pachyderm’ Ever

first_imgEdit this setlist | More The Claypool Lennon Delirium setlists On June 18th, 2016, The Claypool Lennon Delirium wrapped up a smooth sailing summer tour leg with a performance at the renowned Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY. With Dean Ween Group on as opening support, the two bands each provided a unique flavor of psychedelia for the night. The opening set even saw Les Claypool reprise his role from the night before, joining the Dean Ween Group on “The Mollusk.” The real special treat from last night’s show came in the encore, however, when Ween paid it forward.[Video by Brosef Wilson]After a rocking set that included most of the band’s new album The Monolith of Phobos, the set ended with spacey versions of Pink Floyd’s “Astronomy Domine,” “Captain Lariat,” and The Beatles’ “Tomorrow Never Knows.”Finally, the band welcomed out their first-ever guest, as Dean Ween plugged in after a few minutes of the hit Primus tune, “Southbound Pachyderm.” From there, the three string players – Ween, Lennon, and Claypool – were locked in as tightly as can be. It was an extraordinary moment of psychedelic musicianship, one captured brilliantly by Rey Mdo.

With an eye to the physical qualities of the World Heritage-listed site and the project’s complex procurement process, the design concept was not only about touching the earth lightly but also about receding into the landscape and hugging the slope on the hill so that the physical presence of the house could be somewhat hidden in its surrounds.”More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home5 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor5 hours agolast_img read more

Syracuse gets set to defend Johns Hopkins overhand shooter Ryan Brown

first_imgPlayers like SU’s man-up specialist Derek DeJoe generate massive power from a sidearm release, but that’s less a part of Brown’s arsenal.“Shooting the ball overhand has allowed me to be very consistent compared to shooting the ball sidearm,” Brown said in the video. “When shooting the ball overhand, you have a greater margin of error.”He explained how holding onto the ball too long while shooting sidearm will make it go wide and having an early release will place the ball right at the goalie. But with an overhand approach, an early release just means a shot lower in the goal and a later release puts the ball in the upper corners.As is evident by his numbers against Syracuse, the junior’s prolific shooting may not result in a handful of goals every game. But to counter that, he relies on Shack and Wells Stanwick, his fellow attacks, to draw defenders and create opportunities for him.Brown leads JHU with 58 goals, but the Stanwicks and Joel Tinney have combined for 70 more.“He’s a smart player so he knows not every game you’re going to get 12 shots and get eight goals,” SU attack Kevin Rice said. “He has two smart attackmen that he’s playing with in the Stanwicks and they do a good job of helping create opportunities for him, so he just sort of let’s the game come to him and when he gets his opportunities he’s a great shooter.”SU head coach John Desko highlighted JHU’s ability to shoot the ball as its strength, pointing out Brown as someone who’s a “tremendous” shooter. To defend against that style of player, Mullins said, can be as simple as keeping a stick on his hands since he’s not likely to present a plethora of moves off the dodge.It’s the third time facing the 5-foot-10 attack in two years. So for Syracuse, it’s just about limiting what Brown has already proven to be lethal.“I don’t think we’re really worried too much about him dodging hard to the cage,” Mullins said. “…but just knowing where he is on the field and making sure we can collapse on him if they pass him the ball.” Comments Ryan Brown doesn’t fit the stereotypical mold of smaller, shiftier attacks that are proliferating through college lacrosse.“Ryan Brown, is actually, he’s not a dodger really, he’s more of a shooter,” Syracuse defender Brandon Mullins said of the Johns Hopkins attack.It’s Brown’s patented overhand release that allowed him to be so effective against the Orange, scoring eight goals on 11 shots in a 12-10 loss to SU on March 15, 2014. But it’s a tendency SU clamped down on this season, allowing the junior only two goals on eight shots when the teams played again just two months ago.And when second-seeded SU (13-2, 2-2 Atlantic Coast) faces the Blue Jays (10-6, 4-1 Big Ten) on Sunday at noon with a spot in the national semifinals on the line, Syracuse will have to replicate that stingy defensive effort to prevent Brown’s overhand shooting style from taking over the game.“Coach always says know who their players are and adjust accordingly,” Mullins said. “And he’s definitely one of the top players that we have to focus on so I think we were able to do that last time.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn an instructional video with Lacrosse Magazine from January, Brown went step-by-step into how he’s perfected the overhand release.First it’s making sure his hands are positioned behind his face. As a right-hander, he envisions his head at 12 o’clock and feet as 6, so he releases from 11 and finishes at 5. Then after the release, he makes sure to follow through directly toward the goal.

Slideshow Muon g–2 ring takes final steps to new home

At the marina, it was lowered by crane onto a waiting barge. It would be carried by boat down the Atlantic coast, around Florida, and up three rivers to Illinois. Fermilab Brookhaven National Laboratory Fermilab Three thousand people turned up to see the ring arrive at Fermilab on 26 July 2013. It had traveled 5000 kilometers by land, sea, and river. Just last week, we rolled the magnet out once again. We had [hauling company] Emmert International come out and help us with the final leg of the journey. They brought it out on Saturday morning around 8 o’clock and towed the ring about a mile to the new building.Then, of course, they needed to get it into the building. We were clever enough to remember to design a hole big enough for it to fit through. There’s no door that you could possibly make that would accommodate it, since it’s 50 feet [15 meters] wide. It kind of looked like a giant CD player, when the whole ring just went sliding into the side of the building on a rail system. Inside, it still looks like the ring is levitating, because it’s on some scaffolding as they slowly lower it down to the experimental floor, which is about 16 feet [5 meters] below ground level.Q: What was the hardest part of the moving process?A: From my perspective, one of the hard parts was finding the right vendor for the job: a transportation company that could safely move this magnet and would have the political skills necessary for all the hurdles when it comes to trying to move a 50-foot-wide thing through areas where nothing that wide has ever been transported before. That was quite a task, but Emmert International was fantastic to work with. In fact, we’re going to meet their crew at the bar in about 2 hours for a beer.Q: What was the scariest moment?A: When the barge was coming up Cape Hatteras, there was a storm blowing up and the wave data started getting bigger, and bigger, and bigger. And we’re like, “Oh, man.” Cape Hatteras is well known as a shipping graveyard. So we made the decision to pull up into Norfolk and wait out the storm before we continued.Q: The most exciting?A: Truly the most exciting moment by far was the reception the ring received when it arrived at Fermilab. We invited the public to come out and see it when it arrived. Three thousand people showed up. The lab eventually had to close the gates because there wasn’t any more room. To have the ring roll down by Fermilab’s reflecting ponds, and a crowd of 3000 people cheering—I don’t know how we’ll ever rival that moment in a science experiment, it was just amazing.Q: The ring is so delicate. Do you know yet if all its systems survived the journey?A: We’ve done all the tests we can on the ring while it’s warm and not hooked up to a cryogenic plant. You can measure the electrical resistances, put a voltage on it, make sure it’s not leaking current, check the piping systems that will hold liquid helium to make sure they’re intact. We’ve done all those basic tests and everything looks good so far.But this is a superconducting magnet, and for it to operate, it has to be cooled down to liquid helium temperatures. That’s the name of the game for the next 6 months. We will be rapidly trying to build the superconducting systems and connect the cryogenic wires and get the power supply operational so we can do the ultimate test, which is to cool and power the magnet.Q: When will the experiment start running?A: You can get it cold in about 6 or 7 months. But it’s not just good enough to have a strong enough magnetic field. It also has to be an extremely uniform magnetic field. So after the magnet is powered, that immediately begins a phase where we spend 9 months to a year iteratively changing little pieces of steel, adding little pieces of wire with currents flowing through them, where we effectively try to “shim” the magnetic field—applying corrections to make it very, very uniform.And then you still have to be able to see the muons somehow. They’re not visible to the naked eye or anything—it takes a very sophisticated set of detectors and electronics and a data acquisition system. There’s a lot to the experiment beyond just the magnet. So all those systems are being prepared.By the time that’s all done, that’s still about 2, 2-and-a-half years from where we are today. The current start date is March 2017, but we’re hoping there are a few tricks we can play along the way that might make it go a little faster. Of course, you never know—it’s science. Building a new ring at Fermilab would have cost $25 million, whereas moving the existing one from Brookhaven cost $3 million. Heavy-haul transport company Emmert International designed a 40-ton transport fixture to hold the ring steady during its journey. Brookhaven National Laboratory The ring left Brookhaven in the wee hours of 24 June 2013, traveling by truck down Long Island’s William Floyd Parkway to the Smith Point Marina. Brookhaven National Laboratory Spectators came out to see the ring at several points during its 1-month journey. Many compared the sight to a UFO. Fermilab Over the next 6 months, physicists will cool the ring to superconducting temperatures and test its magnetic field. Until then, they can’t be sure if the delicate ring survived the journey intact. The team hopes to begin taking data in March 2017. After waiting out a storm near Norfolk, Virginia, the ring made it safely to the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway north of Mobile, Alabama. Brookhaven National Laboratory Fermilab Once it reached Lemont, Illinois, the ring was loaded back onto a truck for a 3-night journey across shuttered roadways to Fermilab.

Beginning at Brookhaven National Laboratory in Upton, New York, it traveled 5000 kilometers down the Atlantic coast, up three rivers, and across several highways to reach its new home at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) in Batavia, Illinois. The ring is a key part of an experiment to measure a property called magnetic moment in muons, much heavier subatomic-particle relatives of electrons. Scientists saw tantalizing hints of new physics during Muon g–2’s first run at Brookhaven from 1999 to 2001. But to be sure, they need to run the experiment again with Fermilab’s more powerful muon beam—which is why they moved the 15-meter-wide ring halfway across the country by truck and barge. Science talks to Chris Polly, Muon g–2’s project manager, about some highlights of the trip and what’s in store for the ring at its new home. For more about Muon g–2’s journey, check out the slideshow above.Q: What’s happened at Fermilab since the ring arrived last year?A: Since the ring got here, we’ve been constructing the new home for the magnet. It needs a building with very special temperature and floor stability requirements, and there wasn’t any place here that would accommodate it. After the ring was successfully transported, the work to construct the experimental hall got going at 100%.
