Every November for the last 12 years, an array of musicians from Colorado have come together to celebrate The Band’s famed final concert, The Last Waltz. Dubbed “The Last Waltz Revisited,” the show serves not only as a star-studded tribute, but also as an important benefit for the Denver Rescue Mission. With the 40th anniversary of The Last Waltz coming up in a matter of days, it was all hands on deck as an all-star lineup of musicians joined forces for the occasion.Among those performing were The Dyrty Byrds, Bridget Law, Eric Martinez, and surprise guest, Paul Hoffman of Greensky Bluegrass. Hoffman joined on mandolin for a number of songs, and lent lead vocals to a beautiful rendition of Bob Dylan’s “Forever Young.” Thanks to Ted Rockwell on YouTube, we can watch this Dylan cover below.[H/T JamBase]

University of Wisconsin women’s hockey hoped to finally make it to the hallowed NCAA Frozen Four tournament final. They walked into New Hampshire with their heads held high and their eyes bright with excitement.Unfortunately, they would not be leaving New Hampshire in the same manner.Wisconsin (35-4-1, 24-4-1 WCHA) met Border Battle rival University of Minnesota-Twin Cities (34-4-1, 24-3-1 WCHA) Friday for one last matchup this season; both teams fighting for the right to play Boston College in the final.The Badgers knew they were in for a fight against the Gophers, only it was one that they could not lose. Head coach Mark Johnson eerily predicted the outcome of Friday’s game during a press conference Monday.“History tells me that when we match up against Minnesota, generally they’re pretty close games,” Johnson said. “They’re overtime games, you know, they’re end-to-end action and for the people that show up, or get a chance to watch it on the stream line, similar to the previous five games this year, it will be entertaining.”Johnson was right on the money with his prediction.Minnesota would start the game off with a goal from freshman Taylor Williamson to get the ball rolling. Wisconsin didn’t let Minnesota stay in the lead for too long, with freshman Sophia Shaver knocking the puck into the back of Minnesota’s net, tying the game up 1-1 at the end of the first period.Women’s hockey: Badger freshmen grow accustomed to Wisconsin-Minnesota rivalryLife as a freshman is never easy. There are roommate issues, homesickness, eating what passes as food at the cafeteria Read…This game was a hard fought match for control of the puck, and neither team was dominant when it came to puck possession. It would be almost 30 minutes of back and forth play before a team would manage to produce another goal.Wisconsin’s Emily Clark then scored at the very end of the second period, giving Wisconsin the lead and momentum moving into the third to seal the deal.Minnesota was not out for the count though, and would wind up sending the game into overtime with an early third period goal that went unanswered by the Wisconsin bench.Women’s hockey: Johnson looks ahead as Badgers eye redemption in Frozen FourThe Wisconsin women’s hockey team is looking ahead to the matchup with the Minnesota Golden Gophers this week after ending Read…Johnson’s prediction rang true as the Badgers and the Gophers played an intense 15 minutes of overtime, with both teams trying their hardest to solidify their spot in the final.Minnesota gave Wisconsin two overtime power-plays, which were crucial scoring opportunities for the Badgers. The Gophers fought their hardest, and managed to kill both off, leaving the Badgers still clinging on, searching for a scoring opportunity.It wasn’t until a goal from Gopher Sarah Potomak, sealing the Gophers’ 3-2 win, that the Badgers ended their 2015-16 campaign. This will be the third time that they’ve lost to Minnesota in this setting in the last three years.But this season certainly was not a waste for the Badgers as they managed to collect both the WCHA regular season and conference titles.Goalie Ann-Renée Desbiens has cemented her place in history as the single-season shut-out record holder, a title that she has fought long and hard for. She is also still in the running for the Patty Kazmaier Award, which will be announced March 19 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.Women’s hockey: Desbiens’ impressive season acknowledged by votersAnne-Renée Desbiens set a new highest-standard for NCAA goaltenders this season. The junior goaltender was named WCHA Player of the Read…While the Badgers and their fans might be upset that their season is over, they should also be proud, knowing that their team is still truly one of the best in the league.

This approach, she argues, will allow for workers to better access social benefits, such as housing solutions, and will also be better able to contribute to the National Insurance Scheme (NIS). “The informal economy, unfortunately, accounts for a significant percentage of the labour force. We have to get more of our workers into the mainstream where they can be normalised and lead highly productive lives. Jamaica’s biggest asset is its people, and we have proven, time and time again, that given the opportunity, we can accomplish great things,” she said. Story Highlights Minister of Labour and Social Security, Hon. Shahine Robinson, says the Government is intent on breaking the “cycle of informality”, where more and more Jamaican workers will be trained and transition into the formal economy.

We welcome you to our shores and look forward to an excellent relationship,” Mrs. Robinson said.She added that the magnitude and size of the hotel investment “is rather encouraging”, as the workers who are trained will find employment “in keeping with the decent work agenda”.The Minister said she is “beseeching” all employers to take every step to utilise the local workforce, noting that “our Jamaican workers” are known internationally to be industrious and committed.“Construction of this hotel will certainly create job opportunities for our citizens. Our workers remain one of the most important pillars in our social and economic advancement. The provision of jobs is not only in recognition of their worth to society, but also our commitment to their own personal development,” she argued.
NEW YORK, N.Y. – Uber has named Barney Harford its new COO, the same day the European Union’s top court dealt it a blow, ruling that the ride-hailing company should be regulated like a transportation company and not a technology service.Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said Wednesday that Harford would oversee Uber’s global operations, marketing and customer support teams beginning on January 2.Even before the EU setback announced earlier Wednesday, Uber has had a rough 2017, from the ouster of CEO Travis Kalanick, sexual harassment allegations and the revelation that it covered up a massive breach of customers’ data. Kalanick resigned in June, under pressure from the board after a video surfaced of the former CEO arguing with a driver for the company.Last week, a federal judge unsealed an inflammatory letter in which a former Uber security specialist accused the ride-hailing service of corporate espionage. The judge urged prosecutors to investigate allegations that Uber stole technology from Waymo, Google’s autonomous vehicle unit.The company, founded in 2008 and based in San Francisco, has also seen numerous defections by executives and board members in the past year.Harford, who has been serving Uber in an advisory role since October, is the former CEO of Orbitz and serves on the boards of United Airlines and RealSelf. He moved to the U.S. from Britain in 1999 to work for Expedia, where he worked with Khosrowshahi.

Archaeologists found four artifacts in total, one complete biface tool and three biface fragments, but could not make a cultural association, it said.The commission acted on an order under the Heritage Conservation Act to secure the four artifacts for protection and further examination, it added.It said the area had been logged twice, prepped and replanted, and all soil layers where cultural artifacts would typically be found had been removed and were at some distance from where the items were found.The Coastal GasLink pipeline would transport natural gas from northeastern B.C. to LNG Canada’s export terminal in Kitimat on the coast.With files from the Canadian Press HOUSTON, B.C. – Members of the Unist’ot’en clan are standing by their claim that indigenous artifacts were found at the construction site of the Coastal GasLink Pipeline.The Unist’ot’en clan said Monday the artifacts were recovered from a site that “had been heavily disturbed” by Coastal GasLink bulldozers. It said in a statement that the “cryptic bulletin” from the commission “ignores the role that CGL’s industrial activity has played in disturbing this cultural site and displacing these artifacts.”The Unist’ot’en have previously said the two tools were removed to protect them. The clan has also said an archeologist from the Smithsonian Institution estimated one of the tools dates back up to 3,500 years. The Oil and Gas Commission said in an information bulletin that investigators found stone artifacts on top of frozen clay soils and the archaeology branch of the provincial Forestry Ministry is working to return the items to the appropriate Indigenous communities.“The soils upon which the artifacts were found would not typically contain any such cultural artifacts, and this was likely not their original location,” the commission said.“However, a definitive determination on their exact location of origin cannot be made.”The two stone tools that were originally reported discovered were not present at the site, the information bulletin said.The Unist’ot’en said they have not been included in the archeological work done on their territory. “Wet’suwet’en cultural artifacts cannot be properly identified and analyzed without the input of Wet’suwet’en people,” it said.Coastal GasLink quoted the Forests Ministry as saying there was “strong evidence” the artifacts had been moved from their original location, as they were found sitting on top of a frozen slab of clay. Remaining sediments are considered to be “culturally sterile,” it added. The Forests Ministry said in a statement it was impossible to determine the age of the artifacts or attribute them to a specific Indigenous community.“There is no way to determine when or how they came to be in the location,” it added.Analysis of the artifacts is complete, and the branch is now working toward returning them to the appropriate communities, it said.In an emailed response to questions on Monday, the commission said the team examining the site was not aware the two tools had been removed.
