It was a bonafide reunion of Allman Brothers Band guitarists last night at NYC’s The Beacon Theatre, as guitar slinger Warren Haynes joined Tedeschi Trucks Band for a four-song sit-in during the second set. The TTB is now five nights into their six-night stand, and have welcomed a bevy of guests throughout the run including Jorma Kaukonen, Dave Mason, Eric Krasno, Luther Dickinson and more. However, seeing Haynes and Trucks play together – at the Beacon no less – must have conjured memories of the Allman Brothers days.The two guitarists played together in the Allman Brothers for many years, though that band has not been active since 2014. Haynes appeared during the second set, and, while they didn’t actually play any Allman Brothers songs, the two did treat fans to some blues classics.Haynes would emerge for an extended run at the end of the second set, joining in on Robert Johnson’s “Preachin’ Blues,” Derek & The Dominos’ “Keep On Growing,” the blues standard “It Hurts Me Too,” Blind Faith’s “Had To Cry Today,” and King Curtis’s “Soul Serenade.” Check out videos of the Haynes-Trucks collaboration, streaming below.Preachin’ Blues > Keep On Growing (via Sean Roche)It Hurts Me Too (via Sean Roche)Soul Serenade (via Marc Millman)Had To Cry Today (via Marc Millman)The band ends their run tonight, October 8th, with another two-set performance.

You can also follow on social media with #PFTour18. Today we head from Central Ohio to Central Indiana and our 12 scout teams will cover a lot of ground. Time to hit the road! – TyFinal Pro Farmer Results for Ohio Corn: 179.57 bushels per acreSoybeans: 1,248.20 pods in a 3 foot by 3 foot squareHamilton County, IndianaOur last stop of Day 1 and although it may look a whole lot better than our last stop…it is worse. These ears are a great size but size isn’t all that matters here. Populations were well below what we have been sampling today and pollination issues were noticed as well. Our yield calc here is 127. Ending on a down note. Soybeans were podded all the way to the tips, but there weren’t many pods to speak of per plant. Our pod count in the 3 foot square is 623, also the lowest of the day.Hamilton County, IndianaHamilton County, IndianaHamilton County, IndianaHamilton County, IndianaHamilton County, IndianaHamilton County, IndianaHamilton County, IndianaHamilton County, IndianaMadison County, IndianaThis corn is not very far along and these samples have not been what we are used to seeing today. The later planting may have hampered development in this area of Indiana and it looks like drought was to blame as well. Our yield check here is 135, our lowest of the day. Soybeans were planted in 30 inch rows and population was much higher than previous checks as a result. Unfortunately, this farmer will not see the pod count that he was likely hoping for. Our 3 x 3 foot count is 892.8.Madison County, IndianaMadison County, IndianaMadison County, IndianaMadison County, IndianaMadison County, IndianaMadison County, IndianaMadison County, IndianaMadison County, IndianaDelaware County, IndianaThis field has the most disease pressure we have seen so far today and a good chunk of it is above the ear. With shorter ears coming out at our sample point, the higher population will help boost this number, as will an 18 around. This corn is getting more mature as we go west. Our yield estimate here is 196.7. Soybeans were better than we have seen at the past few stops with stalks podded all the way to the top. A few grasshoppers seen here, but little to no disease. Soil was still tacky from a recent rain which will help these beans to the finish line. Our pod count in a 3 x 3 foot square is 1330.Delaware County, IndianaDelaware County, IndianaDelaware County, IndianaDelaware County, IndianaDelaware County, IndianaDelaware County, IndianaDelaware County, IndianaDelaware County, IndianaRandolph County, IndianaOur boots are muddy after this stop. Plenty of moisture here and the corn looks good from the road and by the ears. The question is will this corn be there for the combine at harvest. Green snap had taken place recently and there will not be enough time to recover. About 40% of this field has been effected. Despite that, our yield check was 208. Soybeans were coming along nicely and had a decent stand. Pop count here was on the low side and there were no new blooms to be seen. Our pod count was 883 in a 3 x 3 foot square.Randolph County, IndianaRandolph County, IndianaRandolph County, IndianaRandolph County, IndianaRandolph County, IndianaRandolph County, IndianaRandolph County, IndianaRandolph County, IndianaDarke County, OhioNo time to stop by the county fair, so have a corn dog for me! I am in the back listening to my two scout colleagues in the front seat talking about how USDA’s numbers were higher than expected but after our first stop, I think they are getting the hint.Another great looking field of corn here. Well into dent again and ear fill was ideal. Population was solid and our average arounds was over 16. Yield check here is 219. These soybeans had weather stress that we haven’t seen much of over the past 2 weeks. Our goal is to find the most representative part of the field to get a fair calc. It was still a low pod count of 633 in a 3 x 3 foot square.Darke County, OhioDarke County, OhioDarke County, OhioDarke County, OhioDarke County, OhioDarke County, OhioDarke County, OhioDarke County, OhioShelby County, OhioWe have a split route today, so one group is taking samples from Central Ohio to Ft. Loramie and my group will be starting just west of there and finishing the route to Central Indiana. With me today is a Crop Insurance agent from Minnesota and a grain buyer from Singapore. Our new friend from overseas is pretty overwhelmed with how much green space we have. His country is all concrete and tall buildings. For fun, he goes to the mall and to the movies. Gives you a greater appreciation of what I see everyday out here.Our first stop was Dollar General. Turns out we left our 30 foot rope at the hotel. I have in the back seat measuring out 30 feet of the cheap 50 foot rope we found.Our first actual field did not disappoint. All 3 ears pulled in this sample were filled nicely and very heavy. Kernal depth was impressive and our yield estimate 191. Soybeans are calculated by pods in a 3 foot by 3 foot square and that number here is 1,836. These beans were very healthy and pretty well done setting pods. Moisture levels here were not great. Seemed drier than I expected it to be. The rains coming will be welcomed here.Shelby County, OhioShelby County, OhioShelby County, OhioShelby County, OhioShelby County, OhioShelby County, OhioShelby County, OhioShelby County, Ohio
QC cops nab robbery gang leader, cohort The IBSF isn’t waiting.“I understand that it was a difference of culture and that the Russians don’t believe they did anything wrong,” U.S. women’s skeleton veteran Katie Uhlaender said after the IOC decision to strip the medals and issue the Olympic bans was announced Wednesday. “But this was the only way to fix it.”Uhlaender will be promoted to the bronze medal spot once Nikitina, as the IOC has ordered, surrenders what had been her bronze from Sochi and the IBSF updates the results. Tretiakov was the men’s gold-medalist; the revised order of finish for that event will now have Latvia’s Martins Dukurs getting gold, Matt Antoine of the U.S. bumped up to silver and Latvia’s Tomass Dukurs, Martins’ brother, will become the bronze medalist.Uhlaender, who was fourth, will soon officially be third behind gold medalist Lizzy Yarnold of Britain and silver medalist Noelle Pikus-Pace of the U.S.Sliders have lauded the IOC for doing the right thing, though noted that racers like Uhlaender and Tomass Dukurs — even once they have medals in hand — will never be able to replicate the moment on a podium that they should have had in Sochi.ADVERTISEMENT Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Elena Nikitina of Russia celebrates her bronze medal win during the women’s skeleton competition at the 2014 Winter Olympics, in Krasnaya Polyana, Russia. The International Olympic Committee has banned four more Russians for doping at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, all competing in the sliding sport of skeleton and includes men’s gold medalist Alexander Tretyakov and women’s bronze medalist Nikitina. AP FILE PHOTOThe two Russians who had their medals from the Sochi Games stripped because of doping have been barred from competing in World Cup races, at least temporarily.It’s the latest sanction against Aleksandr Tretiakov and Elena Nikitina, who had their medals — gold for Tretiakov, bronze for Nikitina — taken away Wednesday (Thursday Manila time) after it was determined they were part of Russia’s state-sponsored doping program at the 2014 Olympics. They have already been banned from future Olympics, and now may have no place to slide.ADVERTISEMENT Read Next LATEST STORIES Japan ex-PM Nakasone who boosted ties with US dies at 101 Raisman embraces role as ‘Fierce’ advocate for abuse victims Stronger peso trims PH debt value to P7.9 trillion Kris Aquino ‘pretty chill about becoming irrelevant’ “Having the physical medal’s cool, but most of it in my opinion is the experience of everything that happens,” Antoine said. “That’s what you cherish the most.”Not having the top Russians on the World Cup circuit figures to have a major impact on the points standings.Nikitina was the World Cup women’s points leader after the first two races of the season, and was coming off a victory last weekend in Park City, Utah.

Along with Tretiakov and Nikitina, Mariia Orlova and Olga Potylitsyna — who have been racing on the lesser-tier Intercontinental Cup Circuit this season — were also banned, just as they were by the IOC.

Former India midfielder Renedy Singh believes skipper Sunil Chhetri will be the key to India’s Asian Cup football tournament campaign as he sets the best example in the current team.”There are many players who have been doing well recently. But for me, Sunil sets the best example. He has done so well consistently over the past few years. He may not be growing younger, but most significantly, he’s not just there to support. He is there to lead by example,” Renedy was quoted as saying by the All India Football Federation (AIFF) website.Renedy, best remembered for his accurate crosses from the flanks and his dead ball exploits, also said that ace Sunil is at the stage of his career where he can take up that mantle.”It’s good to see that Sunil has improved as a dead-ball player. Back in our days, he never used to take free kicks — it was either me or Steven Dias,” he recollected. “But then one fine day, he walked up to me and said, Renedy-bhai, you can’t take both free kicks and penalties. I want to chip in too,” Renedy smiled.”So we decided that Sunil will take penalties, and we would continue taking the free kicks. But he didn’t stay content with the penalties. Rather, he improved himself as a free kick taker. In fact, he has scored from many free kicks since then,” Renedy stated.”Just outside the box, Sunil has been deadly. A bit further down, I think (Anirudh) Thapa and Narayan Das are pretty good with the dead ball too,” said Renedy who was part of India’s AFC Asian Cup Doha 2011 campaign.advertisement”You have the others around Sunil to support him – the likes of Gurpreet, Sandesh and Jeje are the senior players who should lead by example. Then the younger lot will also follow,” opined Renedy.Renedy feels India’s first match against Thailand will set the tone.”We have to go all-out against Thailand in the first match. Do not think about UAE, do not think about Bahrain. Just go after the result in the first game,” Renedy advised.”Only after the match we can decide on the next course of action. If they can get a result against China, we should be able to do the same against Thailand,” he said.”The Asian Cup is a huge platform and there’s always something to learn from these matches. Play your heart out because such opportunities don’t come each and every day,” he signed off.Also Read | AFC Asian Cup 2019: Gouramangi Singh feels hosts UAE will be India’s toughest matchAlso Read | Asian dream has to be converted into a reality: AIFF boss Praful Patel
NEW ORLEANS, LA – JANUARY 01: Cardale Jones #12 of the Ohio State Buckeyes celebrates after throwing a 47 yard touchdown pass to Devin Smith #9 in the third quarter against the Alabama Crimson Tide during the All State Sugar Bowl at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on January 1, 2015 in New Orleans, Louisiana. (Photo by Sean Gardner/Getty Images)When Chicago Bulls star Joakim Noah mouthed off about the SEC to Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones, he probably didn’t expect a feud like this. Cardale Jones has already joked about fighting and boxing against the former Florida Gator, and he continues to tweet at Noah during every game in the Bulls’ series against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Bulls lost tonight’s game five 106-101 to go down three games to two in the Eastern Conference semifinal, and Jones was all over Noah once again.I see the Bulls wanna start some mess while 12 ain’t there, yall lucky— Cardale Jones (@CJ12_) May 13, 2015LETS GO CAVSSSSSSS— Cardale Jones (@CJ12_) May 13, 2015GET UP CHUMP!— Cardale Jones (@CJ12_) May 13, 2015Just double team D Rose, @JoakimNoah is self checked, he’s not a factor on offense— Cardale Jones (@CJ12_) May 13, 2015Ain’t nobody hating on Noah I just don’t like the bum, Butler, Rose, Gasol, & the rest of the Bulls, mess with yall just not this series— Cardale Jones (@CJ12_) May 13, 2015CLEVELANDDDDDDDD— Cardale Jones (@CJ12_) May 13, 2015great pass @JoakimNoah— Cardale Jones (@CJ12_) May 13, 2015Let Noah shoot the 3— Cardale Jones (@CJ12_) May 13, 2015Ayyyyyyyyyy Lets Go Cavs— Cardale Jones (@CJ12_) May 13, 2015Just in case @JoakimNoah don’t know 3-2…… CAVS— Cardale Jones (@CJ12_) May 13, 2015Don’t insult Cardale Jones if you value your Twitter mentions.
