That’s why we can’t wait for their tour to hit Terminal 5 in New York, NY, on Friday, December 2nd. Tickets can be found here.The pairing between these two bands started last summer, when the bands got together after High Sierra Music Festival for a meeting of the minds at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, CA. The resulting session saw each band cover a track from the other’s catalog, with their collaborative help, of course. The two tracks they laid down – Turkuaz’s rendition of NMS’s “On The Border” and New Mastersounds’ rendition of  Turkuaz’s “The Rules” – were recently released as the Split 7″ EP.Their tour just kicked off with a few nights in Colorado, including a great show in Boulder, CO that we reviewed here. Each show with these two bands turns the energy up the max, as Turkuaz’s funk army style is matched by the chilled out funky grooves of The New Mastersounds. Expect exciting collaborations and non-stop dancing when these two bands come to town!Be sure to catch Turkuaz and The New Mastersounds in New York City when they come into town on Friday, December 2nd.

Controversial wind turbine project passes Monday, receives mixed reaction

first_imgThe project as a whole has received mixed reaction from both community members and local, elected officials. The board says the developer estimates the project will create 150 construction and construction related services jobs in the state, plus seven more for the operation of the facility. At a Sanford Board meeting on Dec. 10, new restrictions were introduced and passed to limit the distance turbines can be placed from personal property and noise frequencies. Democratic Broome County Executive Jason Garnar commented on the approval Monday saying, “It’s going to provide hundreds of jobs in Broome County, millions of dollars of tax revenue, economic development opportunities for years to come, I think it’s really important that we work to bring these projects into our community.” Republican State Senator Fred Akshar spoke out against the approval saying in a statement Monday: The Siting Board referenced this aspect of the process, saying in a statement Monday in part: Following the approval Monday in Albany, the board says the 124-megawatt Bluestone Wind Project will include up to 27 wind turbines; 23 of those in the Town of Sanford and four in the Town of Windsor. These will join a slew of other towers, roads and lines associated with the project. On our news app? Read the full statement by clicking here. ALBANY (WBNG) — The New York State Board on Electric Generation Siting and the Environment, known as the Siting Board, says it approved Bluestone Wind, LLC, to build and run a wind farm in Broome County. “Even through the most contentious and divisive issues facing our communities, it’s government’s role to listen to the people they serve and work together to find a path forward. That didn’t happen today. Once again, bureaucrats in Albany chose to steamroll over local laws passed by the people and local governments they serve in favor of their own political agenda.Today, the New York Siting Board ignored the objections of the only two board members representing the local communities affected by the proposed 27-tower wind turbine project in Sanford.The Town of Sanford unilaterally passed specific local regulations on land use to address the many concerns of local community members, but rather than respecting the wishes of these local communities and working with them, the politically appointed Board proceeded to steamroll over their input and force this project through.In the coming days, I’ll be cosponsoring legislation requiring approval through local public referendum for major projects like this.” “In its decision, the Siting Board waived compliance with a Town of Sanford law prohibiting construction of the project because it was found to be unreasonably burdensome under Siting Board rules. The Siting Board noted that Town of Sanford, a party in the case, did not make any objections regarding issuance of the initial certificate and enacted the moratorium after the conclusion of the evidentiary hearing and the filing of post-hearing briefs.”last_img read more

Dominant India crush Sri Lanka to take series lead in Galle

first_imgGALLE, Sri Lanka (Reuters) – Spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja shared six wickets to help India to a thumping 304-run win against Sri Lanka on the fourth day of the first Test on Saturday for a 1-0 lead in the series.The hosts, chasing a mammoth 550 for victory, only managed 245 runs before their second innings folded in the final session of the penultimate day, after opening batsman Dimuth Karunaratne had been dismissed for 97.Asela Gunaratne, who had fractured his thumb and was ruled out of the series, and stand-in captain Rangana Herath, who suffered a hand injury on Friday, did not bat for Sri Lanka in the second innings.“(I’m) Really happy with the way things went in this particular game,” India captain Virat Kohli said at the presentation. “All bases were covered nicely and the guys stood up when it was needed most.“The surface didn’t offer much. That’s why the win is more special because the bowlers had to work hard.”India, the world’s top-ranked Test side, declared their second innings closed on 240 for three after Kohli completed his 17th Test hundred.The right-handed batsman, who resumed the day on 76, remained unbeaten on 103 after reaching the milestone with a single off spinner Dilruwan Perera.Burdened with an improbable target, Sri Lanka needed a solid opening stand but their hopes were dashed when Mohammed Shami bowled Upul Tharanga for 10, a relief for Kohli who had dropped the batsman at second slip in the same over.Debutant Danushka Gunathilaka did not last long either and was out for two, hitting Umesh Yadav straight into the hands of Cheteshwar Pujara at square leg.Sri Lanka were 29-2 at that stage and needed a solid 79-run stand between Karunaratne and Kusal Mendis to settle things down.India came back strongly after lunch with two quick wickets from left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja, ranked number one in the world in the longest format.Mendis, who made 36, was given not out on a caught behind appeal but India successfully overturned the umpire’s decision on review. Former captain Angelo Mathews fell soon afterwards, mis-hitting Jadeja to get caught by Hardik Pandya.Mathews’ dismissal brought Karunaratne and Niroshan Dickwella together and the pair added 101 for the fifth wicket, before Dickwella was caught by wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha to become Ashwin’s first victim of the innings.Karunaratne dragged the off-spinner, playing his 50th test match, back onto his stumps while playing a sweep shot and fell perilously close to his sixth test hundred.Ashwin, who took 3-65, also dismissed Nuwan Pradeep without scoring before Jadeja (3-71) wrapped things up when Lahiru Kumara skied an attempted slog to become the last man to fall for the hosts.“All credit goes to the India team,” Herath said. “We need to improve ourselves in all three departments.”The second Test will be played from Thursday in Colombo.INDIA 1st innings 600 (S.

Stoke City to keep Asmir Begovic?

first_img(Source: foxsports) Stoke chief executive Tony Scholes is hopeful they can keep hold of Asmir Begovic as the goalkeeper approaches the final year of his contract.The Bosnia international has regularly been linked with other clubs during his time at the Britannia Stadium, and although his current deal has just over 12 months to run, Scholes believes they can match the 27-year-old’s ambitions.“Clearly Asmir is a terrific goalkeeper and we are very keen to keep him at the club,” he told The Sentinel.“I think when you’ve got extremely good players it is only natural that there will be speculation about their future.“These players are also very ambitious and I include Asmir in that. He is a very focused, very talented and very ambitious young man.“He wants to make sure he can play at the very best levels his abilities will enable him to and to have a very good and successful career in the game .“We hope that we can fulfil all of those things at Stoke City.”last_img read more

Bafana can beat Brazil: Barker

first_img26 February 2014African Nations Cup-winning Bafana Bafana coach Clive Barker is backing current coach Gordon Igesund to come good against five-time World Cup winners Brazil when the two teams clash at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on 5 March.Barker was at the helm when South Africa and Brazil met in 1996 and 1997. The Brazilians won both matches, 3-2 and 2-1 respectively.The former match, contested between the then African champions and world champions, has gone down as a classic in South African football history.The value of experience“I believe in both matches, first at FNB Stadium, when we lost 3-2 having led 2-0 at halftime, and secondly at Ellis Park in the 2-1 loss, we could have come up with better results had we had a bit of experience,” the Black Aces mentor said in a statement late last week.He said one thing that Bafana Bafana needed to remind themselves of was that, regardless of names, it would be a contest of 11 men against 11 men.“One of the biggest short-comings is to give too much respect to your opponents. Yes, Brazil have a star-studded team, but that means nothing once you walk onto the pitch,” Barker said.ImpressedHe declared himself impressed by Igesund’s charges when they beat Spain at the same venue late last year, and said he was expecting a repeat of those heroics from the local boys.“This is a big match for everyone. It is every player’s dream to play against world beaters like Brazil, and I think that inspiration will drive all players to go all out.”Kit launchBrazil will be using the match to launch their 2014 World Cup playing kit. They will use the home kit in the opening half and change into their away kit for the second half.Bafana Bafana will also be launching their new limited edition Nike kit on the night.“We are using the match as a handover of the 2010 Fifa World Cup hosts to 2014 hosts,” said South African Football Association president Danny Jordaan.TicketsThe match kicks off at 19:00 and tickets are going for R50 (upper tier), R100 (lower tier) and R200 (middle tier).Brazil arrivalThe Brazilian squad will arrive on Monday, 3 March, in three batches at OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg.Having previously named a squad of 15 European-based players, coach Felipe Scolari has added three players who ply their trade in Brazil, namely Fluminense’s Fred, Atletico Mineiro striker Jo and Botafogo goalkeeper Jefferson.Fred was the top goal scorer in the 2013 Fifa Confederations Cup, which Brazil won, netting five times, but missed the 1-0 loss to Switzerland in August because of injury.Jo has become a regular under Scolari, while Jefferson returns after missing November’s friendlies against Honduras and Chile.‘A good opportunity’“It’s a good opportunity to meet the group, our last before the final squad of the World Cup [is decided],” Scolari said in a statement released by Confederaçao Brasileira de Futebol (CBF).“It will be an important test against an African team who recently beat Spain, and a good time to talk to the players and coaching staff on planning for the World Cup.”SAinfo reporter and South African Football Associationlast_img read more
