Drug involvement at St Peter’s bop brawl

first_imgPolice officers were called to a fight which broke out at a St Peter’s College bop on Saturday 12 October. Thames Valley Police confirmed that two men were arrested, one of whom was cautioned for possession of cannabis.The two London men, aged 31 and 21, were believed to be friends of a bop attendee. They are due to appear at Oxford Magistrates’ Court later this month, charged with obstructing or resisting a police officer in the execution of their duties. Both have been released on bail.Neither of the men in question are thought to be members of Oxford University.Cherwell understands that St Peter’s porters managed to eject the two men from the bop itself, but had to call police in order to remove them from college premises.One unnamed St Peter’s student told Cherwell that she saw thirteen policemen enter the bar on Saturday evening. She said, “There were a couple of guys having a fight – not Peterites, just randoms. But they brought all the police for crowd control if they needed it.”She added, “It was pretty crazy for the first bop”.last_img read more

Bob Weir And Wolf Bros Work “All Along The Watchtower” Inside “Dark Star” On First Night In NYC [Videos]

first_img“Dark Star” (Partial) Setlist: Bob Weir and Wolf Bros | The Beacon Theatre | New York, NY | 11/18/18Set One: Jack Straw, Maggie’s Farm > Me and My Uncle, Looks Like Rain, Gonesville, Loser > Josephine, Throwing StonesSet Two: Deep Elem Blues, Dark Star (v1) > All Along The Watchtower > Dark Star (v2) > Two Djinn > Wharf Rat, China Cat Sunflower > I Know You RiderEncore: Going Down The Road Feeling BadNotes: Weir switched from acoustic to electric during “Loser”, and again during “All Along The Watchtower”; “Wharf Rat” contained “Dark Star” teases; “Going Down The Road Feeling Bad” contained “China Cat” tease. “I Know You Rider” (Partial) On Sunday night, Bob Weir and Wolf Bros began the final stop on their inaugural tour with their first of two performances at the storied Beacon Theatre in New York, NY. While many of the shows on this tour have included special guests to augment the group’s core lineup of Bob Weir, drummer Jay Lane, and bassist Don Was, night one in Manhattan was all about the trio and the fantastic setlist they wove together throughout the night.The evening began with a spirited “Jack Straw” that saw Weir and Lane trade lead vocals. A well-played rendition of “Maggie’s Farm” followed, marking the first of two Bob Dylan covers on the night. Live Grateful Dead favorite “Me and My Uncle” came in next. As Weir stepped to the mic to begin the next tune, he seemed to have a new idea, opting to put down his electric guitar and pick up his newer acoustic for “Looks Like Rain”. Bobby shined on lead vocals on this excellent rendition of the Grateful Dead ballad, commanding the room with a seasoned swagger.Next up was Blue Mountain track “Gonesville”, a staple of Wolf Bros setlists throughout the tour. As the band readied themselves for the next song, Weir seemed to have some commentary on deck for the coming number. However, after taking a beat to collect his thoughts, he mused, “I’m trying to think of a story about this song. I guess I’m gonna have to let it tell itself.” The song in question was Jerry Garcia/Robert Hunter classic “Loser”, which saw Weir switch from acoustic back to electric mid-song. Finally, the band wrapped up the show’s first frame by rocking and rolling with “Josephine” and dancing and shaking their bones with “Throwing Stones”.Set two got moving with “Deep Elem Blues” before moving into “Dark Star” to the audible excitement of the sold-out crowd. After an extended instrumental intro, Weir led his Bros through the first verse of the Dead jam vehicle before taking a detour into the second Dylan cover of the night, a slinky, subtle “All Along The Watchtower”, which once again saw Weir switch from acoustic to electric mid-jam. From there, the band landed back in “Dark Star” for the song’s second verse before moving into RatDog‘s “Two Djinn”, which saw both Was and Lane take their time to shine.Next, the band moved into “Wharf Rat”, the hot Sunday crowd cheering and singing along. After an excellent reading of the song featuring some residual “Dark Star” licks from Weir, the trio moved into the final segment of the set: an emotionally potent “China Cat Sunflower” > “I Know You Rider”. Finally, after a brief break, the band returned to the stage for a “Going Down The Road Feeling Bad” encore complete with added elements of “China Cat”.Bob Weir and Wolf Bros will wrap up their nationwide tour tonight with their second and final night at the Beacon, and considering it’s the final night of the tour—and it’s taking place in the Big Apple—you can likely expect some special guest Bros to make an appearance. Who do you think will join the party?Check out a selection of clips from Bob Weir and Wolf Bros’ first night at The Beacon Theatre below:“Throwing Stones” (Partial) “All Along The Watchtower” (Partial)last_img read more

Vermont Energy Partnership comments on Vermont Yankee reliability report

first_imgNorthstar Vermont Yankee,In conjunction with a report from the Public Oversight Panel conducting the comprehensive vertical audit and reliability assessment of the Vermont Yankee Nuclear Facility, Brad Ferland, President of the Vermont Energy Partnership issued the following statement. This is another thorough and exhaustive study that shows Vermont Yankee should be part of the state s energy future. The bottom line is the report states the plant is reliable and that this reliability can be maintained.The more than 6,000 hours of work involved in this study follows approximately 20,000 hours of inspections the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission has undertaken with respect to the plant s license renewal application, as well as exhaustive, regular, annual safety inspections.Furthermore, numerous independent studies have found that Vermont Yankee is critical to ensuring Vermont has low-cost power and that the state continues to maintain one of the country s lowest carbon footprints on both an absolute and per capita basis.As it is critical for Vermont s economy to maintain the low cost, clean, reliable power that Vermont Yankee provides, the Vermont Legislature can send out a positive message that the state is open for business and that consumers will continue to have low-cost power by an affirmative vote that it is in the public interest of the state that the plant continue to operate.The Vermont Energy Partnership (www.vtep.org(link is external)) is a diverse group of more than 90 business, labor, and community leaders committed to finding clean, affordable and reliable electricity solutions to ensure Vermont stays a great place to live and work. Our mission is to educate policy makers, the media, businesses, and the general public about why electricity is imperative for prosperity, and about the optimal solutions to preserve and expand our electricity network. Entergy, owner of Vermont Yankee, is a member of the Vermont Energy Partnership.last_img read more
