There May Be An Allman Brothers Band Reunion For 2017 In The Works [Report]

first_imgEver since their final shows at the Beacon Theatre, fans have been pining for a reunion of The Allman Brothers Band. Now, according to bassist Oteil Burbridge, it seems that reunion may be closer than ever.According to an interview in the San Diego Union-Tribune, Burbridge said, “I think the original guys have been talking. We’ll see what happens.” He also talked about being open to reprising his role in the band, saying, “Oh, yeah, I’m always waiting for that call… Gregg (Allman) texted us not long ago, saying: ‘Hey, maybe we should start thinking about getting something together in 2017.’ I said: Hey, man, I’m here! Holler at me!’”When we spoke to Burbridge earlier this year, “There’s PLENTY of time left for an ABB tour. We’ll see what happens. I’m game for it. Playing in both bands in the same year would certainly be cool. Never think your best days are behind you.”Considering that Derek Trucks and Gregg Allman performed together just last night, it seems anything is possible. Then again, Trucks and Warren Haynes both pushed for the end of the ABB to work on their own projects, so perhaps a reformed Allman Brothers would have a different lineup from the one that toured throughout the 2000s. Only time will tell.last_img read more

University professors opt to teach virtually in light of COVID-19

first_imgNotre Dame professors will teach in three formats this semester: fully-virtual, hybrid or in-person with a virtual component for students in quarantine or choosing to take class online this semester. The majority of professors teaching in a full-virtual format have underlying medical conditions or they have a family member who does.Professor David Hutchison in the Mendoza College of Business opted to teach fully-virtually this semester due to family health concerns.“My wife suffers from lupus rheumatoid arthritis, chronic lung issues with pneumonia,” he said. “She’s an asthmatic, and she’s got probably a half a dozen or so other autoimmune conditions. So, all of that leaves her at very high risk, should she contract the virus.”Hutchison said he also has a daughter who does not currently live at home, but is likely to for a meaningful period of time during the term, has a condition called POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome) and another condition called mast cell disorder and mast cell disorder, which puts her in a very high-risk position relative to the coronavirus.Hutchison primarily teaches real estate classes in the finance department of Mendoza. His classes will take place synchronously as opposed to asynchronously. “Part of what makes Notre Dame the unusual and special place that it is is that it emphasizes community,” he said. “My job has historically been to be a part of your students’ community, as an instructor and as an advisor and, basically, mentor; I’ve worked my duration here at Notre Dame with that in mind. … I bet you would hear from them — the vast majority of [professors] — that we have no real interest in doing things this way.”Typically, Hutchison offers his help to students undergoing career discernment and interview preparation for internships and full-time positions. He emphasized the importance of adding extra time throughout his day to communicate with students via phone, text message, email and Zoom.“It makes a whole lot of sense for me to try to accommodate what you folks are comfortable with because there’s one of me and a whole lot of you,” he said. Professor Tatiana Botero in the College of Arts and Letters is also teaching virtually this semester.Botero said she has underlying conditions that make her susceptible to the coronavirus. She also said this allows her to stay home with her 13-year-old son during the day, who would have otherwise been home alone. “It would have been very challenging to oversee his school day at home — e-learning — while I was at the University,” she said. Botero is teaching two Spanish language classes this semester both with two sections of students. She plans to teach synchronously most weeks with an occasional Friday asynchronously for project-work. She said she preferred to teach her language classes virtually because it allows for facial expressions and better enunciation than when wearing masks and social distancing in-person. This, in turn, helps foster community among her students, she said.“In class discussion, it’s just not feasible to have pair-work, collaborative work, when you have to be 6 feet apart in the classroom. And then also wearing masks, myself included, the students can’t really see how I’m speaking,” Botero said.She said pair-sharing — when each student has the opportunity to think and share their thoughts in the language — is a core component of her classes. “I’m really happy we are [using] Zoom because we can still have the pair-work in breakout rooms, then we can come back to the class in gallery view to see all the students and they can see me,” Botero said.Using Zoom allows her to check-in on the pairs working together in breakout rooms as the host. Both Hutchison and Botero emphasized the importance of fostering community and collaboration in and out of class through the use of technology during this semester. Tags: 2020 fall semester, Arts and Letters, Mendoza, virtual learning, zoomlast_img read more

Fishing the North Coast: Plenty of Klamath salmon left to catch

Rice to receive 107 million from Kinder Foundation for education research

first_imgShare3Rice UniversityOffice of Public Affairs / News & Media RelationsDavid [email protected] [email protected] to receive $10.7 million from Kinder Foundation for education researchHOUSTON — (April 18, 2017) — The Kinder Foundation has awarded a $10.7 million grant to Rice University’s Houston Education Research Consortium (HERC) to expand its innovative work to additional school districts in the Greater Houston region.Ruth López Turley. Photo by Jeff Fitlow.HERC is a research-practice partnership between Rice and the Houston Independent School District (HISD) that aims to improve the connection between education research and decision-making. The center’s research has included topics such as the benefits of pre-kindergarten, the effect of teacher evaluations, the impact of school closures, and the predictors of dropping out of school. Established in 2011 and housed in Rice’s School of Social Sciences and Kinder Institute for Urban Research, HERC’s ultimate goal is to close socio-economic gaps in achievement and attainment.“We’re extremely grateful for this opportunity to develop a regional research agenda together with school district leaders,” said Ruth López Turley, HERC director, associate director for research at the Kinder Institute and a professor of sociology in Rice’s School of Social Sciences. “There are many issues that can’t be addressed through a single school district, but using research to collaborate across districts within the same region is promising, and having the resources to do this work is rare. This is truly a meaningful gift to children in the Houston metropolitan area.”The grant will allow HERC to continue its research with HISD while extending the center’s analytical reach to several additional districts, Turley said.  She said HERC will work in partnership with school district leaders to develop a research agenda focusing on issues of regional importance, such as segregation, effective curriculum and programs, and bilingual education.“Dr. Turley represents the very best of how universities can collaboratively engage with communities to take on the world’s most complex challenges. HERC has already shed light on a number of important educational topics, and this generous gift will expand HERC’s good work in service to our community’s children. We are grateful to our school district partners and to the Kinder Foundation for making this important work possible,” said Rice Provost Marie Lynn Miranda.HERC will also facilitate data sharing and disseminate research findings that can benefit the region. Finally, HERC will consult with state agencies, including the Texas Education Agency, the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, and the Texas Workforce Commission for supplemental data and information sharing that affects the region.“This is an extraordinary grant not only to Rice University, but also to the entire Houston metropolitan area,” said Rice President David Leebron. “Rich and Nancy Kinder’s incredible support of HERC will impact lives for generations to come by addressing the area’s most important education issues.”“Under the leadership of Dr. Ruth López Turley, HERC has excelled at bringing together the right decision-makers and quality analysis to improve K-12 education,” said Nancy Kinder, president of the Kinder Foundation. “Broadening HERC to include more districts will have far-reaching positive implications for children growing up in the Houston region.”Turley said HERC focuses on creating a direct line of communication between education researchers and decision-makers to ensure that all children have access to a high quality education, regardless of their economic status or where they live. HERC’s research agenda is shaped by the needs of local education leaders, and the decisions of these leaders are informed by the research produced by HERC and its affiliates.
