first_imgBlues-rock guitarists Eric Krasno and Marcus King will both play a pop-up, pool-side performance at Dead & Company‘s “Playing In The Sand” event down in Riviera Maya, Mexico on Saturday. The duo set was announced on Friday, and will take place at 1 p.m. local time at the pool of the Barceló Maya Colonia Hotel on Saturday afternoon, as attendees at the four-day destination event will look to continue their south-of-the-border party into the heart of the weekend.Both Krasno and King had been at sea the past few days, as both musicians were part of the ongoing 2019 installment of JamCruise. The two helped lead an all-star performance in the ship’s Spinnaker Lounge on Day 2 of JamCruise on Wednesday, where they rocked the boat alongside drummer Duane Trucks (Widespread Panic), keyboardist Deshawn “D-Vibes” Alexander (Marcus King Band), and Kevin Scott (The Invisible Whip). The pop-up performance on Saturday will act as the latest live collaboration between the two musicians/friends, as the guitarists have come to develop quite the tandem with recurring sit-ins at each others’ shows over the last few years as King’s career continues to blossom.Dead & Company had the day off on Friday following an impressive night one performance on Thursday. Fans and snowbirds who are at the event were also invited to check out the Dead-themed photo gallery event at The Hard Rock Hotel on Saturday morning, which featured showcased work from renowned GD photographer, Jay Blakesberg.Regardless of what beach-side plans attendees may have had for Saturday afternoon, fans should still try to make their way over to the Barceló Maya Colonia pool by 1 p.m. later this afternoon for a pre-Dead & Co. jam session.last_img read more

Community remembers fifth-year student

first_imgXavier Murphy, a fifth-year student and former resident of Zahm Hall, died Tuesday after a short battle with cancer. He was 22. Zahm Rector Corry Colonna said he and Murphy both joined Zahm in 2007 and got to know each other well during Murphy’s four years in the dorm. “He had an amazing energy about him, always so positive. He greeted everyone with a big smile,” Colonna said. “He was soft-spoken but confident and always respectful.  He had a sensitivity about him that attracted others to him.” Murphy was diagnosed with leukemia exactly one month before he died. He developed pneumonia over the weekend. Murphy, who is from Anderson, Ind., graduated with a degree in political science with the class of 2011, but was on campus this semester to finish one class and intern with the football team. “It is so very hard to imagine that energetic person is now passed,” Colonna said. “As a person of such energy, of good faith, and kindness will be how we remember him.” Murphy’s mother, Marcia Murphy, said her son was a quiet, private person, but the time since his diagnosis allowed her to see a different side of him. “He did begin to open up more and share and tell us things like he never would,” she said. “That very first day, I’ll never forget how he said, ‘I’m just so scared.’ That was so un-Xavier to open up that way.” But throughout his battle with cancer, his mother said Murphy rarely complained. Instead, during one of his most painful days, Marcia said Murphy comforted her when she cried. “It’s really weird because he got this big smile, and he did have a beautiful smile, and said, ‘Why are you crying, mom?’” Marcia said. “And I said, ‘Because it is so hard to watch you suffer.’ He took my head in his hands and said, ‘It’s okay, I’m going to be okay.’ “He didn’t fight it. He wasn’t afraid. He comforted me in his suffering.” Murphy’s father, David, also remembers Murphy’s ability to comfort those around him. “He was a gentleman in the sense that he didn’t want people around him to feel badly about themselves [or] to feel sad,” David said. “He was a lovely guy who is going to leave such a huge impact on all of us.” His parents also said Murphy embraced God during his last few weeks, and asked for confession before he died. David said Murphy loved Notre Dame and his time living in Zahm. “He loved the family he found at Notre Dame,” David said. “He loved Zahm. He loved that place and those boys were his brothers … They have been so loving and supportive, and it has meant a lot to our family.” Murphy’s younger brother, Julian, also attends the University. Zahm celebrated a Mass in honor of Murphy on Tuesday in the dorm’s chapel, followed by a walk to the Grotto. Over 150 students processed into the Grotto with candles, and many members of the crowd raised their arms in an “X” above their heads to honor Murphy. Murphy served as one of the three senior football managers last year and was interning with the football team this year. Head Football Equipment Manager Ryan Grooms called Murphy trustworthy and loyal. “Immediately, he’s one of those kids you kind of fall in love with,” he said. “He had one of those attitudes and personalities that just kind of lights up the rooms and brings happiness to everybody around you.” University President Fr. John Jenkins said in a statement Murphy will be missed by the Notre Dame community. “Our prayers and condolences go out to Xavier’s family and friends,” Jenkins said. “By all accounts he was an exceptional and greatly loved young man who will be deeply missed.” Prior to Murphy’s passing, Zahm had planned events to support Murphy and raise awareness for cancer patients. Colonna said he hopes to continue with the events. He said Zahm hopes to hold a “Raise an X for X” campaign during the Notre Dame vs. Navy football game Oct. 29, which would have been Murphy’s 23rd birthday. However, Colonna said he wants to get permission from the Murphy family before moving forward with the event. The campaign would ask the student body to stand and make an “X” with their arms over their heads, mimicking the symbol residents of Zahm traditionally make during the Celtic chant. “X isn’t just for Xavier, it is for us, but it can be a variable for anyone who is fighting cancer,” Colonna said. Zahm would also sell red T-shirts and bandanas to raise money and awareness for those battling cancer. As part of his leukemia treatment, Murphy needed to receive frequent blood transfusions. Colonna said Zahm will hold a blood drive Nov. 7 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the LaFortune Ballroom. A funeral Mass will be celebrated for Murphy on Saturday at 11 a.m. The location is not set yet, but will be in one of two churches near Murphy’s hometown.

Board to meet November 30

first_imgBoard to meet November 30 November 15, 2001 Regular News A discussion on multidisciplinary and multijurisdictional practices, the annual audit report of Bar finances, and the last of this year’s two-year cycle procedural rule amendments will be among the items addressed by the Bar Board of Governors at its November 30 meeting. Governors will also take up again an appeal of an ethics opinion on advance funding, make a variety of appointments, and hear a report from the Family Law Section on its activities. The board will be having one of its periodic out-of-state meetings, this time in Atlanta. More than 900 Florida Bar members practice in the greater Atlanta area, and a reception, sponsopred by the Out-of-State Practioners Division, is planned to give those lawyers a chance to meet with board members. State Bar of Georgia President Jimmy Franklin and members of that bar’s Executive Committee will be attending the meeting, and a panel discussion is planned with members of both groups on the multidisciplinary and multijurisdictional practice issues. The Florida Bar has been a leader in the effort to block the establishment or growth of MDPs, while the Georgia bar is considering what position to take on that issue. The Florida Bar is studying the MJP issue, which is concerned about when it is proper for out-of-state attorneys to handle legal issues and related topics, including disciplinary questions. The Criminal Procedure Rules, Workers’ Compensation Rules, and Code and Rules of Evidence committees will present their two-year cycle rule amendments to the board for its review. That will complete the initial year of the new biennial rule cycle process, which has the procedural rules committees presenting amendments every other year, instead of the previous four-year cycle, and half of the committees presenting their changes in any given year. The Audit Committee will present the findings of the Bar’s outside auditors on the fiscal 2000-01 year operations, along with any recommendations from the auditors. That fiscal year ended June 30. The board will revisit Proposed Advisory Opinion 00-3 from the Professional Ethics Committee, which addresses advance funding companies. Those companies offer to loan money to personal injury clients secured only by expected winnings. The PAO 00-3 holds it is ethical for attorneys to tell clients about advance funding companies and, if the client gives written consent after consultation, to share confidential information with a funding company. An early version of the opinion also held that lawyers could issue letters of protection to the funding company, but the final version omitted that. It did say a lawyer could honor such a letter executed by a client. Some board members, at their October meeting, expressed reservations about the ethics of advance funding companies and the interest rates charged. Others said while some companies might be unsavory, it was not the lawyers’ duty to prevent clients from entering into such agreements. The board tabled the issue so members could review earlier drafts of PAO 00-3. Family Law Section Chair Norman Levin is scheduled to present the section’s annual report to the board. He is also expected to meet with the Disciplinary Procedure Committee over a planned revision to Rule 4-1.8(i), which prohibits an attorney from obtaining an interest in the client’s property which is subject to the cause of action. The DPC is considering an amendment to clarify that lawyers may not obtain a mortgage on client’s property, which would include property being divided in a divorce. The Family Law Section’s Executive Council has voted to oppose that, saying it would make it harder for some clients to obtain lawyers. The council also has gone on record in favor of allowing lawyers to get a percentage of property divided in a divorce as a way to improve access to the justice system. Appointments to be made include: • One lawyer from the federal Northern District of Florida for a four-year term on the 11th Circuit Judicial Conference. • One lawyer for a two-year term on the Greater Orlando Area Legal Services, Inc., Board of Directors. • Five lawyers, one from each district court of appeal jurisdiction, for two-year terms on the Florida Realtor-Attorney Joint Committee. • One lawyer for a three-year term on the Florida Rural Legal Services, Inc., Board of Directors.

Local hospital opening up its new “Farmacy” food program

first_imgSIDNEY (WBNG) — A.O. Fox Hospital’s Tri-Town campus is launching a new food program that provides food items to patients in need after the hospital was given thousands of dollars in a grant. “Because we live in a rural community, we don’t have access to healthy foods as much as we’d like to,” said Buttice. “We don’t have transportation, we don’t have the resource in our homes.” Similar to a food pantry, officials who started the farmacy say it’s a whole lot more than that. They also provide an education on how to cook healthier meals. “We’ll be offering free cooking classes,” said Director of Education and Employee Wellness, Sarah Buttice. “They know what to do with the food when they get it. They can introduce it to their families, and help them see the benefits of eating healthy.” Some of the food in the farmacy include fresh fruits and vegetables, low sugar cereals, and healthy soups. Buttice says the Tri-Town campus covers an area that doesn’t have the best resources when it comes to healthy food. Those eligible for this program include patients who get referrals from clinicians. Usually, that would include patients with chronic diseases like heart disease or diabetes. Other patients with food insecurity, lack of health insurance, or low household income can also be eligible. The farmacy will open 9 a.m. Tuesday, January 7 at the A.O. Fox Hospital Tri-Town Campus in Sidney. You can find it right when you enter the campus’s Sidney Specialty Services doors.last_img read more

Novatek says first Yamal LNG cargo sold to Petronas’ UK unit

first_imgLNG World News Staff Yamal LNG (Image courtesy of Novatek)Russia’s Novatek, the operator of the recently commissioned giant Yamal LNG export project, said on Monday that the first cargo from the Arctic facility had been sold to a UK-based LNG unit of Malaysian energy giant Petronas.The first LNG cargo containing 170 thousand cubic meters of the chilled fuel has been shipped aboard Sovcomflot’s Arc7 ice-class LNG tanker Christophe de Margerie.The cargo was bought by Petronas LNG UK Limited that has a 50% equity and capacity stake in the UK’s Dragon LNG terminal at Milford Haven.Novatek added in its statement that LNG sales under Yamal LNG’s long-term contracts will start in April 2018.“All LNG sales prior to that date will be sold by Yamal LNG shareholders on a spot basis,” the company said.Novatek’s chief executive and co-owner Leonid Mikhelson said that the departure of the first Yamal LNG shipment marks the official entry of Novatek into the global gas markets.“This event begins the process of developing and liquefying our massive natural gas resources on the Yamal and Gydan peninsulas into more than 70 million tons of LNG. This potential gives our country an opportunity to become one of the biggest global LNG exporters,” Mikhelson said.The three-train Yamal LNG plant, designed to produce about 16.5 million tonnes per year, started liquefying natural gas from the South Tambey field on the Yamal Peninsula earlier this month.The export project’s first liquefaction train will gradually ramp up capacity to 5.5 mtpa.Other two trains are expected to come onstream in 2018 and 2019.last_img read more
