Goose Shares Pro-Shot “Drive” From 2019 Buffalo Club Show [Watch]

first_imgGoose has shared a pro-shot, multi-camera video highlighting the band’s 30-minute performance of “Drive” played during a packed show at Nietzsche’s in Buffalo, NY back on November 16th, 2019. The entire performance at the smaller Buffalo venue was recently released in full on digital formats earlier this month, with a vinyl pressing due out in February.The lengthy, jam-filled rendition of “Drive” was the closing number for the first set of the night, and saw the band treat its fans in attendance to quite the dance party before heading into set break.“Buffalo was a sure highlight for us in 2019. Like a lot of our Fall 2019 shows, it was our first time headlining in town and the show sold out way in advance, so the energy was through the roof,” guitarist/keyboardist Peter Anspach said about Goose’s performance that evening. “One of my favorite things to do on that tour was survey the crowd, and that night we had people from all over the place, it was really humbling to see that people had traveled just to see us at this small bar in Buffalo, and it turned out to be an absolutely magical night.”Related: L4LM Staff Picks: The Quarantine MVPs Who Kept Us Going In 2020 [Videos]Revisit the band’s marathon performance of “Drive” in the newly-shared video below.Goose – “Drive” – 11/16/19[Video: Goose]Click here for the album’s vinyl pre-order options ahead of its February 8th release.last_img read more

NEWS SCAN: ‘Downer’ law overturned, California pertussis progress

first_imgJan 24, 2012US Supreme Court overturns California’s ‘downer’ livestock lawThe US Supreme Court yesterday unanimously overturned a California law that required euthanization of “downer” livestock as a food safety measure, thereby upholding the supremacy of the Federal Meat Inspection Act (FMIA) of 1906, Food Safety News (FSN) reported today. California enacted the law in 2009, banning the sale or slaughter or downer cattle, pigs, goats, and sheep, which are animals that are unable to walk. Downer cattle may pose an increased risk of bovine spongiform encephalitis, or mad cow disease, though no cases have been identified in the United States since 2006. The National Meat Association challenged the California law on behalf of pork producers, and a federal judge in Fresno struck down the law, but the Ninth US Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco reversed that decision. In its decision, the Supreme Court said the FMIA “expressly pre-empts” state laws aimed at federally inspected pork facilities.Jan 24 FSN storyCalifornia ends 2011 with no pertussis deathsFor the first time since 1991, California reported no pertussis (whooping cough) deaths last year, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) said in a statement today. The zero fatality report comes a year after the disease sickened 9,000 Californians and killed 10 infants. Dr Ron Chapman, director of the CDPH, said contributing factors were greater pertussis awareness, more rapid diagnosis and treatment, and increased vaccination rates. “I thank our public health and medical communities for working together and being especially vigilant following the 2010 epidemic,” he said in the statement. The state offered hospitals free vaccine for new parents. A new state law takes effect this fall that requires students in grades 7 through 12 to get a tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (Tdap) booster. The CDPH said state had more than 3,000 infections in 2011, which is still high. For comparison, in 1991, the last year when no deaths were reported, only 249 pertussis cases were reported. Of 575 babies 3 months or younger who had pertussis, 42% were hospitalized last year, down from 59% in 2010.Jan 24 CDPH statementlast_img read more

Shield law would safeguard democracy

first_imgThe newspaper had been the subject of a grand jury subpoena so broad that one constitutional law expert at Arizona State University, James Weinstein, called it “outrageous.” The subpoena demanded not just information from reporters, but information about all the newspaper’s online readers, including their Internet domain names and the Web sites they visited before reading New Times. The newspaper’s supposed offense? It published an article saying that the county sheriff, Joe Arpaio, kept his home address private to shield nearly $1 million in cash real-estate transactions. The Phoenix New Times printed that address, allegedly in violation of a state law. Citizens in a democracy need a free flow of information, and the sources of that information sometimes need protection. A shield law provides not all, but some of that protection.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Some wondered if this would ever happen, but the House of Representatives last week passed a bill that is close to the heart of a democracy because it helps assure a free flow of information. Moreover, the vote was by a wide and veto-proof margin. The act, in the words of Speaker Nancy Pelosi, is “fundamental to our democracy and ? to the security of our country.” Usually referred to as a shield law, it would support the right of journalists to protect confidential sources. Many states, including California, already have shield laws, but the federal government has been the holdout. Various administrations, including the current one, have tried to maintain that Justice Department policies already protect journalists’ confidential sources. The current administration makes the same point, which no one should take seriously. The White House has said the president would veto the act if it is passed by both houses. The time has come to pass a federal shield law. The margin in the House vote makes the point forcefully: 398-21. Among the few opposing the measure are those disappointed that it isn’t stronger. The bill in its present form covers only those who practice journalism as a substantial part of their livelihood or substantially for private gain. It ought to cover bloggers and others as well. The First Amendment protections of a free press safeguard the rights of all Americans, not just those on certain payrolls. There have been many wrongdoings corrected only with the help of confidential sources, the most celebrated being the Watergate crimes in the Nixon administration. But such wrongs exist at all levels. And the protection is essential at many levels, not all of them in the big-city centers of journalism that brought down the Nixon White House. For example, an alternative weekly newspaper, the Phoenix New Times, is the target of a potentially devastating onslaught by the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office. The weekly reported on its plight Thursday, at its own peril because of grand jury secrecy rules. The owners, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, were quickly arrested on misdemeanor charges of violating those secrecy rules. last_img read more
