The Spirit of Suwannee Music Park came alive for the festival, installing incredible art exhibits and even a floating holographic pumpkin for all to enjoy.Cheese, in turn, matched the festival’s enthusiasm with a three-set Halloween performance for the ages. While the first and third sets were certainly filled with standout renditions of The String Cheese Incident’s classic material, the band brought their A-game for a full second set of just 80’s covers.After a “Welcome To The 80’s” introduction, the band started with Eurhythmics’ “Would I Lie To You?” The band continued with The Clash’s “Should I Stay Or Should I Go,” before Diana Ross’s “Upside Down” had the fans really rocking. The song was obviously a reference to Stranger Things, which featured “The Upside Down” as a counterpart to the normal world. It was a Stringier Things performance, after all.  Thomas Dolby’s “She Blinded Me With Science” came next, only adding to the madness of this fun set.Cheese took the set into a funkier direction with Earth, Wind & Fire’s “Let’s Groove,” before busting out a couple of 80’s rockers in Billy Idol’s “White Wedding” and The B-52’s “Love Shack.” Finally, a medley of 80’s covers, including Talking Heads’ “Burning Down The House,” ended the set.Watch “Burning Down The House” below, via Hulaween’s FB Page.Check out some footage from Stringier Things below via Instagram.

Students explore racial achievement gap in U.S.

first_imgThis year’s first Soup and Substance lecture, presented by student-led initiative Take Ten, explored the educational achievement gap in minority students with a discussion titled, “Soup and Substance: The Racial Achievement Gap in the U.S.”Notre Dame’s Center for Social Concerns provides opportunities for discussion of important social justice issues while also providing food at Soup and Substance.At the discussion, members of Take Ten, a group dedicated to educating young students about methods of conflict resolution, examined the nuances of the racial achievement gap, particularly the socioeconomic factors and institutionalized racism that can lower academic achievement.Abby Balmert, a sophomore and member of Take Ten, said several studies demonstrate how poverty and lack of school resources are present at early stages of childhood, and these effects carry over to affect later academic achievement.“In America, not only does the racial achievement gap start before students even enter school, but over time, it gets more extreme,” Balmert said.Senior Megan Fuerst said scholars debate whether “racial achievement gap” is the correct term. Many educators and researchers argue it still implies inherent intellectual differences between minority students and affluent white students, as opposed to emphasizing the widespread poverty minority students face.“Some people say that racial achievement gap is sort of a misnomer and more of a poverty factor,” Fuerst said. “However, the influence of [racial] stereotypes that scholars have divided into direct influences and single influences is still important.”Fuerst said that, although the term racial achievement gap might be misinterpreted, the effect of institutionalized racism should not be ignored, as racism remains a prominent part of the debate over the educational achievement gap.“What’s most important to remember is that while many people would attribute it directly to income level and socioeconomic status, there’s so many more nuances to it than that,” Fuerst said.Senior Kwame Nuako said the racial achievement gap first became prevalent with the advent of eugenics and standardized testing. Nuako said developers of standardized tests during the early 20th century developed tests in order to “weed out” students who were deemed less capable, specifically minority students, immigrants and poor students.Nuako said that, although some of the racial biases of standardized testing are not as explicit today, ideas of “inherent differences in intelligence between certain minorities,” such as African Americans and Latinos, persist.Nuako said the racial achievement gap is an issue that demands greater awareness and discussion. He said partnerships between educators and the community are important in order to develop solutions.“I think it’s great to explore this topic because growing up, you realize it’s such a pervasive issue no matter what background you come from,” Nuako said. “I think it’s good, no matter your background, to explore this topic. There’s a lot of incorrect information out there, and once you actually get to analyze this critically, you can start to analyze these problems. As Notre Dame students, we have the ability to make a difference.”Tags: abby balmert, Center for Social Concerns, kwame nuako, megan fuerst, notre dame center for social concerns, soup and substance lecture, soup and substance the racial achievement in the U.S., take tenlast_img read more

Guatemala Captures Narco-submarine in Pacific Waters

first_imgBy Dialogo July 13, 2010 The Guatemalan Navy has captured a narco-submarine loaded with five tons of cocaine headed for the United States, Guatemalan authorities said Sunday. The navy, in collaboration with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), intercepted the seventeen-meter-long vessel Friday, in Pacific coastal waters, and arrested four Colombians who were on board. “There was a compartment for sleeping, another for the machinery, and a cargo compartment full of cocaine,” Guatemalan armed forces spokesperson Byron Gutiérrez said at a press conference.

The club treats everyone equally.’AdvertisementAdvertisementEarlier this week one of Carrasco’s teammates accused the former Atletico Madrid winger of deliberately incurring a suspension to avoid having to play for his club.Speaking on Chinese social media platform Weibo, Yu Ziqian said: ‘You’re a star and you play well, but you can’t win a game by yourself.‘When we played Shanghai Greenland Shenhua you deliberately got a fourth yellow card (in the season) and got a suspension to avoid playing Shanghai SIPG; and then you went back to Europe ahead of schedule.‘When we played Hebei China Fortune you told the club your plane was late.

When we play training matches you just you just stand around the pitch, you do not attack and do not defend.‘The atmosphere of team training has been ruined. As a professional football player, training and games are as important as life.‘No matter how important a person is, he cannot override the team. I really hope we can say a nice goodbye to you just like we welcomed you at the beginning!’Unai Emery is keen to bring Carrasco to north London, while the player is desperate to return to Europe in order to boost his chances of making Belgium’s Euro 2020 squad.Arsenal, who failed in their attempts to sign Carrasco in January, are, however, struggling to agree a fee with Dalian who are yet to decide whether or not to cash in on their prize asset.More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

A library with a fireplace and a retro vibe were the initial attractions to this home

first_img227 Dewar St, CorindaMore from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home2 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor2 hours ago“I think I fell in love with the library with the brick fireplace. Once we started renovating, we realised it was easier just to practically demolish the whole back of it, we were just going to keep this, keep that, keep the roof, but we ended up virtually keeping none of it except for the library and a front feature brick wall, which I went to great pains to retain.’’Ms Barnhill said she went to great trouble to have the front gate, front door and the door to a wine room made in steel, glass and brass and those accents picked up the home’s glazed brick.“And the library is just a beautiful, warm, lovely room, it has still got that sixties feel,’’ she said.The home is on a large 1867sq m block. The renovation is in a California Modernist style. 227 Dewar St, CorindaIt was the library that Lee-Anne Barnhill fell in love with when she bought her home at 227 Dewar Tce, Corinda, 10 years ago.Her plans then were to renovate the property and turn it into a large family home, but it was something they put off and have just recently done.The result is an almost complete rebuild of the home and a decision that, as their children have now grown up, they would sell it instead. 227 Dewar St, CorindaThe floor plan is split level and is built around central living areas. A number of the rooms open to the outdoor spaces.The outdoor area has a fireplace, barbecue area and a wine fridge.This area has river views and a terraced garden area and swimming pool. There is also a boat pontoon. 227 Dewar St, Corinda“The kids grew up and a family home as such wasn’t required at all,’’ Ms Barnhill said. “It really presents as a brand new home.“Honestly, I bought the house because I fell in love with the sixties retro, funky look. It was dark brown, glazed brick which everyone poo-pooed in those days, but now of course everyone wants it because it is so fashionable. “I loved the joinery and just the feel of it and the library. 227 Dewar St, CorindaThe kitchen has Bianco Venato benchtops with three ovens, two dishwashers, and a separate butlers scullery with foldback windows.There is pure wool carpet in the main bedroom and a walk-in robe. The ensuite has Elba Stone marble, a freestanding bathtub and double shower.There are six bedrooms and four bathrooms throughout the house.Ms Barnhill said the house was close to public transport and within walking distance to some of the best known private schools in the area, and would suit a large family.
