Watch Hard Working Americans Play Adult Swim’s Bizarre Fish-Tank Stream/Talk Show, ‘FishCenter Live’

first_imgFormed in 2013, Hard Working Americans is a well-seasoned all-star group composed of Dave Schools and Duane Trucks of Widespread Panic, Todd Snider and Chad Staehly of Great American Taxi, Daniel Sproul of Rose Hill Drive, and multi-instrumentalist Jesse Aycock. The group is currently in the midsts of their fall tour, which spans through to the beginning of November, in support of their new live album, We’re All In This Together. Yesterday, Hard Working Americans found the time to stop by the offices of Adult Swim, making an appearance on the network’s eccentric program, FishCenter Live—a bizarre talk show that narrates footage of tropical fish in a fish tank.During their live performance on FishCenter Live for the show’s fall concert series, Hard Working Americans opened their time on the show with renditions of “Half Ass Moses” and “Burn Out Shoes” before moving into a light-hearted interview segment (with the camera view shifted back a stream of the fish tank), during saw the group and the show’s hosts taking call-in questions. The format is definitely one of the more strange settings for an interview, but it’s worth a watch. You can check out a replay of the Hard Working American’s appearance of FishCenter Live here, with their segment starting around 9:37. [H/T JamBase]last_img read more

2 issuers to pay NCUA $378M over faulty RMBS

first_img 9SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr NCUA on Monday announced $378 million in settlements, combined, with Barclay’s Capital and Wachovia over now-defunct corporate credit unions’ purchases of faulty residential mortgage-backed securities and said net proceeds will go toward a reduction in credit unions’ corporate stabilization assessments.“We appreciate NCUA’s diligence and welcome the recovery of the funds on the sale of faulty securities that precipitated the downfall of five corporate credit unions,” said Carrie Hunt, NAFCU’s senior vice president of government affairs and general counsel. “NAFCU continues to encourage the agency to not only maintain its persistent legal recovery campaign, but we also urge NCUA to be fully transparent with the industry as to how these recoveries will eventually be returned to credit unions.”In these recent settlements – $325 million from Barclay’s Capital and $53 million from Wachovia – neither institution admitted fault for losses related to the RMBS purchases that led to the failure of five corporate credit unions.NCUA says it is continuing to pursue litigation in federal courts in New York, Kansas and California against financial firms, including Goldman Sachs, UBS, Credit Suisse and Morgan Stanley, based on the sale of faulty securities that caused the collapse of five corporate credit unions. The agency says total recoveries from litigation against banks that sold faulty RMBS to the corporate credit unions will reach $2.2 billion after Monday’s settlements. continue reading »last_img read more

Secular Scientists Prefer Humans Extinct

first_img(Visited 71 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 At a recent panel, scientists doubted whether it would be a good idea to revive the human species if it went extinct.They call themselves experts. In a report on Live Science, Laura Geggel says that five ‘experts’ engaged in a debate about ‘de-extinction’ of animals (resurrecting extinct animals back through genetics). Things got interesting during the Q&A when someone asked about another mammal, Homo sapiens. Geggel describes the response,If humans were to go extinct, would it be ethical to revive the species, to allow us to live once more on this blue planet?It’s a tough call, but maybe not, according to a panel of five experts who debated “de-extinction” during the annual Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate at the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) in New York City on Wednesday (March 29). Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, director of the AMNH Hayden Planetarium, moderated the debate, which honors Isaac Asimov (1920-1992), a biochemist and science-fiction writer who famously wrote the “three laws of robotics.”The only beings that would be able to de-extinctify humans, though, would be mythical space aliens or further-evolved earthlings who understand genetics and know how to perform genetic engineering. What would they do with us low-lifes?Were another intelligent life to de-extinctify humans, would they put us in a zoo-like environment? For a sentient being, that would be “extremely frightening and scary,” said panelist Greg Kaebnick, a research scholar at the Hastings Center, an independent bioethics research institute in Garrison, New York. “The animal welfare concerns just get overwhelming.”Kaebnick must have forgotten that some of his evolutionist predecessors did exactly that. In 1904, led by hard-core Darwinian Samuel Verner, evolutionists exhibited Ota Benga, a black man from an African tribe of pygmies (fully human), into a zoo (see report by Jerry Bergman on Creation.com). He was exhibited as a “primitive man” or an “emblematic savage,” scarcely more than an ape, even though Mr. Benga later got married, learned English, was baptized a Christian. The dehumanizing treatment he had received at the hands of evolutionists, however, left him scarred for life, and he eventually committed suicide, Bergman says.We can tell it wouldn’t be real live African apes that we are familiar with who would bring back humans from extinction. Chimpanzees don’t appreciate Beethoven—or even Justin Bieber, for that matter. Phys.org says that music played to apes, including “work by Mozart, Beethoven, Adele and Justin Bieber,” fell on deaf ears. Contrary to previous reports, “Playing music to captive chimpanzees has no positive effect on their welfare, researchers have concluded.”Yes, it would be “extremely frightening and scary” to imagine Planet of the Apes soldiers torturing captive humans with Justin Bieber music all day. But we ask, how did ‘animal welfare concerns’ evolve? Is that not a question of morals? If morals evolve, then one could imagine a moral system emerging on Planet of the Apes that considers torturing humans with Justin Bieber as a moral good, in their captives’ best interests.We bring you these two reports to show how secular, liberal, atheist ‘experts’ have gone completely wacko. They are the intellectual progeny of staunch atheist Isaac Asimov who—having rejected the God of the Bible—created fantasy worlds of his own to sell to the public.Morality is rooted in human exceptionalism. As Jefferson famously wrote, we are endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights. We are not just mammals, though our souls are housed in physical bodies (very exceptional bodies) that share all the mammal traits. To call the human species ‘just a mammal’ commits the fallacy of reductionism. We humans have intrinsic value not because of our mammalian traits, but because we are eternal souls created in the image of God.last_img read more

Aardklop 2003: ready to rock!

first_img16 September 2003Some of South Africa’s top musicians will be in action at the Castle Loud Oppiaarde Rock Festival from 23 to 27 September at the Potchefstroom University Rag Farm.It’s an opportunity for music lovers to take in a wide variety of styles, incorporating not only Afrikaans performers, but top South African musicians, as well as a guest act from overseas.The festival will, in an exciting addition, also feature a number of collaborations between artists, with some unusual combinations and interesting musical results.One of the headline acts will be the eclectic group BOO!, who have returned to South Africa for a break from touring. They have been in Europe, where they have played in The Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, Croatia, Hungary, Italy, England and the Czech Republic to promote their new album “TNTLC’.The French connectionAlso making the journey from Europe is the jazz collective ARFI, who will be presenting “Stories of the Uncanny’, which is sponsored by the Alliance Françoise, the French Institute and the Goethe Institute.“Stories of the Uncanny’ is a thriller filmed in 1919 which was lost for a number of decades before it was rediscovered by the Cinematheque de Paris and restored by the Kirch Group.ARFI will be performing the live sound track to the movie, which features five short stories: In the first, “Horrible Nights’, a man and a young woman visit a hotel and the next morning, when he wakes up, she has vanished without a trace. In the second story, “The Black Cat’, a drunken man murders his wife and buries her in the wall of his basement with her living cat.In the third story, “The Hand’, a man who murders his enemy is strangled by the ghost of the dead man, while in the fourth story, “The Suicide Club’, a police inspector visits a club where every night a member who draws the ace card must die. The final story presents a lighter side to things, when a marriage that is failing is revived after a stranger shows interest in a man’s wife.Bigger and betterAardklop 2003 will be even bigger than 2002’s successful production, and the programme has been expanded beyond last year’s. It was decided to include an international act for the first time, the aforementioned ARFI, while artists one would not normally associate with Aardklop, such as Mandoza and Zef Sketse, will also be performing.Adding an exciting component to the festival was a request by the organisers for certain artists to work on collaborative projects. This has resulted in combinations such as Not my Dog (winners of the South African Music Association’s best rock album) playing with Mister Fat from Brasse van die Kaap; Albert Frost teaming up with exciting new Blues’ talent Dan Patlansky; and the Brixton Moord en Roof Orkes joining forces with Karla du Plessis.The complete list of artists for OppiAarde 2003 is as follows:Albert Frost and Dan PatlanskyAlta JoubertAnika and ElrineARFI – Stories of the Uncanny (France)Arno Carstens’ New PornBOO!Brasse van die KaapBrixton Moord en Roof Orkes with Karla du PlessisddisselblomMandozaMax NormalNot my Dog with Mister FatThe NarrowValiant SwartZef SketseTickets for the Castle Lager OppiAarde concert are available at Computicket at R55 each.For more information, phone 083 258 2595 or visit the Aardklop 2003 website, which has details on the full programme and the artists.Source: Aardklop 2003last_img read more

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Trippier: What Diego Costa calls me at Atletico Madridby Paul Vegas4 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveKieran Trippier has revealed a nickname Atletico Madrid teammate Diego Costa has given him.The England full-back completed his move from Tottenham to the Spanish club in the summer, where Costa is also currently plying his trade.And the ex-Chelsea striker has wasted no time in giving Trippier plenty of banter, naming him after Man Utd and England legend Wayne Rooney.Costa has a reputation for being hot-headed with a fiery temper, but Trippier explained his other persona as the joker of the dressing room is more accurate.“He calls me Rooney ten times a day!” Trippier told Marca. “He’s like that all the time and it makes me laugh. But it’s Diego. I don’t mind. We all find it fun.“I like him to make jokes every day. I knew him from the Premier League and he’s the funniest player I’ve ever played with.“There’s a great atmosphere on the team, joking with each other, but Costa is the funniest. He also says I look like a boxer – but I don’t think so!“It’s been easy to adapt here. The weather is nice. The food is incredible, better than in England. People welcome me and make my family smile.

College Football’s Top 10 Coaches, Per Athlon Sports

first_imgAthlon Sports ranks college footballs best coaches.Athlon SportsAthlon Sports has ranked every college football coach, No. 1 to No. 128, ahead of the 2016 season. You can view the full list here. The top of the list is what most people care about, though, and inside Athlon Sports’ top 10, there aren’t too many surprises. The biggest “surprise” is probably that there is only one SEC coach in the top 10, but there isn’t a clear SEC coach slight. [email protected] ranked the top #CFB coaches in the country & only 1 SEC coach made the top 10 pic.twitter.com/cBaH9hzp4z— Paul Finebaum (@finebaum) June 21, 2016The No. 1 and No. 2 spots are extremely obvious and unarguable. After that, there are a handful of coaches who could be deserving of the No. 3, No. 4 and No. 5 spots.If you were starting a college football program tomorrow, though, Harbaugh would almost certainly be the choice behind Saban and Meyer.last_img read more
