The Disco Biscuits ‘Spraypaint’ A Friday Night Victory On Day Two At Camp Bisco [Video]

first_imgWhat has been a stellar Camp Bisco this year, continued on Day Two with some serious sets from acts such as Odesza, Griz, Thundercat, Lettuce, 12th Planet, The Polish Ambassador, Mija, and more. And, as always, day two witnessed two full sets of pure, unadulterated Biscuits, which featured monster inverted “Mulberry’s Dream” in the first set that came out of “Caterpillar”. Also of note during the first set was the dark, techno jam that came out of “Feeling Twisted” (check it out below around the 1:22:00 mark).Second set was non-stop party as the Philly band opened up with “Strobelights & Martinis > Spraypaint”, and instead of going into “Rainbow Song” the Biscuits took a re-route to “Lunar Pursuit > Helicopters (ending only). The beginning of “Nughuffer” finished off the dyslexic version that the band began the previous day, and finished the set properly with the ending section of “Spraypaint”.Check out video of the first set from Day Two below, courtesy of UphoricTV Presents. We will update when set two is available:The Disco Biscuits Setlist – Camp Bisco – Scranton, PA – 7/15/16Set 1: Jamilia > Park Ave. > Caterpillar > Mulberry’s Dream* > Feeling Twisted > CaterpillarSet 2: Strobelights & Martinis > Spraypaint > Lunar Pursuit > Helicopter#, Spaga, Nughuffer > Spraypaint[cover photo courtesy of Dave Vann @dv_in_sf and Camp Bisco]last_img read more

Administration analyzes Campus Climate survey results

first_imgIn the results of the 2016 Campus Climate survey, 14 percent of respondents indicated they had experienced some form of non-consensual sexual intercourse or contact while a student at Notre Dame.That number, vice president of student affairs Erin Hoffmann Harding said, is too high. “We know, always, that these instances are happening on our campus, and that is not what we want,” Hoffmann Harding said. “We want to do everything we can to prevent these instances, and make students feel comfortable with reporting. You still see that it’s happening, but you still see there is underreporting, which is sobering, but it motivates us to do more and work harder.”While the number is down 2 percent from the 2015 result, Christine Caron Gebhardt, director of the Gender Relations Center at Notre Dame, says there is still a long way to go to get that number down. “That’s not us sitting back and saying ‘[The number] declined so we must be doing great things,’” Gebhardt said. “It’s us saying ‘Great, it declined — what more can we do?’”Hoffmann Harding said it is encouraging to see awareness of policies regarding sexual assault is high. “I was really proud of students who don’t think this behavior should be tolerated on our campus,” Hoffmann Harding said. “The numbers are really good. We’ve seen some of the education programs … give way to a big bump in awareness strategies, so that’s good news.”Heather Ryan, deputy Title IX coordinator, said she was happy to see that 98 percent of respondents indicated they would identify at least one University resource for support. “That [resource] can be wherever they want to go for them, so that was good news in my opinion,” Ryan said. However, according to the results of the survey, only 10 percent of students who indicated they had experienced non-consensual sexual intercourse reported this to the University. The challenge, Ryan said, is removing some of those barriers to reporting incidents.“If we’re going to make a difference here, we have to figure out what’s holding students back,” Gebhardt said. “We’re really trying to empower them and help them see there are resources and things available.”Satisfaction rates for respondents that have reported incidents to the University and gone through the processes were low, according to the results, which is a major focal point for improvement, Ryan said. “We receive feedback on an ongoing basis,” she said. “Continuing to remain open to those conversations is really important … but I think we can do better with that.”The Committee on Sexual Assault Prevention (CSAP) will meet in the coming months to address these barriers and other notable results of the survey. “We try to take our students’ experience, dig deeper into what you’re all saying in focus groups and then look at peer institutions and say, okay let’s hold our programs, our initiatives, the things that we’re doing under a light and see what’s effective,” Gebhardt said. “But let’s not do things because we’ve done it before, let’s do things because they’re effective.”The University plans to administer the survey every other year, Hoffmann Harding said. “We will do focus groups to learn from the results, so we’re not just surveying and surveying,” Hoffmann Harding said. “We’re trying to learn, talk with our community about what the survey has shared with us. For us, that feels like every other year is about the right time frame for us to look at that.”Tags: campus climate, GRC, sexual assault, Student Affairs, Title IXlast_img read more

No Stephen Curry, James Harden in LeBron James’ ‘Space Jam 2’? That’s shoe biz, report says

first_imgThe report comes after Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo turned down a role because he didn’t want to “give up two weeks of private workouts to train with his fellow stars.””I don’t like being Hollywood,” Antetokounmpo said (per ESPN). “I don’t like all this extra drama. I am just going to try to be me.”Despite the casting issue, “Space Jam 2” will continue on schedule and start filming in July after the NBA Finals. IMDB lists the movie with a 2021 release date. Several players already have turned down an opportunity to star in LeBron James’ “Space Jam” sequel, claiming they don’t want the movie to be a distraction to their training. However, a new report reveals there could be more to it than that. Warriors star Stephen Curry and Rockets star James Harden likely won’t join James for the film because of concerns of a shoe rivalry, according to the Hollywood Reporter, which cited unidentified sources. The Hollywood Reporter notes another factor keeping NBA stars away from joining the cast: James’ family life will be more of a focus for the movie, rather than a group of NBA players. The first “Space Jam” movie starred Michael Jordan and featured Larry Bird, Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing, Larry Johnson, Muggsy Bogues and Shawn Bradley. Giannis Antetokounmpo turned down role in ‘Space Jam 2’ The sneakers play a factor because the original 1996 film was inspired and based on the “Hare Jordan” Nike commercial. Nike became an essential part of “Space Jam,” which creates a problem for Curry and Harden because of their current shoe contracts. Curry has a deal with Under Armour through 2024, while Harden is under contract with Adidas until 2028.The report also indicated that Golden State’s Kevin Durant, who is a Nike endorser, won’t be in the movie because of his own Hollywood venture that will be based on his life. He’s working on launching an Apple series, called “Swagger.” Related Newslast_img read more
