‘Broad City’ Shares Deleted Scene Featuring Phish’s Mike Gordon, a.k.a. Shoe Guy [Watch]

first_imgHowever, the final season of Broad City came and went, and Cactus was nowhere to be seen. On Saturday, the show finally shared a deleted scene on their social media accounts which answers fans’ burning questions about what happened to the Gordo scene.The deleted scene comes from the season’s first episode, “Stories,” in which the show’s fictionalized versions of Abbi and Ilana set out to walk from the “tippity top to the tippity bottom” of Manhattan to celebrate Abbi’s 30th birthday. The girls document their trek live on Instagram Stories, and the episode plays like you’re watching the girls’ story on the Instagram app—complete with 15-second clips and selfies and captions and all.As we know from Broad City‘s many references to Phish and the mutual adoration between the band and the show’s creators, Abbi Jacobson is a card-carrying Phish fan. In this particular clip, Abbi has stopped for a bathroom break and is off camera. Ilana is burning some time outside taking selfies for their big Instagram story when she notices a guy who is “definitely on Stories taking pictures of his shoes!”When she runs over to “shoe guy” to compare notes on why “the internet is the f*cking best,” a white-clad silver fox appears in the frame to explain to Ilana that, “Um, no, well, I just kind of do this one thing.” The exchange ends, in true Stories style, with a pair of selfies that dub the stranger “Shoe Guy” and explain that he “wouldn’t gimme his handle”. Check out the clip below: Last fall, a photo from the set of the final season of Comedy Central‘s Broad City prompted instant excitement from Phish fans. In the photo, you can see Ilana Glazer sitting with bassist Mike Gordon on a New York City bench, taking photos of Mike—clad in his oft-meme’d, all-white outfit—taking photos of his shoes. This, of course, prompted speculation that Gordon would make an appearance on the acclaimed comedy.Ahead of the final season’s premiere, Gordon shared a photo of himself with Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, the show’s co-creators and co-stars, from the same day of shooting, seemingly adding weight to the theory that Mike would make a cameo on the show. That’s right—#ShoeGuy is none other than Mike Gordon. The clip has several layers of humor for Broad City-loving Phish fans to appreciate. If you followed Gordon on Instagram during last summer’s Phish tour, you surely noticed his new habit of documenting his nightly outfits and footwear with similar legs-crossed photos of his shoes, socks, and pants (i.e. “I kind of just do this one thing”).Then, of course, there’s the fact that this exchange happens when Abbi is out of the picture for a moment. Were she there, she would have immediately recognized the Phish bassist and the exchange likely would have gone much differently. But from Ilana’s perspective, this is just a funny interaction with some guy grabbing photos of his outfit for the ‘gram.It’s pretty understandable why the clip was scrapped from the episode’s final cut—the joke may have been a little too “inside” for the show’s general audience. Thanks to Abbi, however, for sharing the deleted scene so her fellow Phish fans can enjoy the silliness. Oh, and thanks to #ShoeGuy for keeping that fashion sense on point.last_img read more

first_imgBy SOUTHCOM August 14, 2019 The purpose of the mission is for U.S. service members and medical professionals to work alongside partner and host nation medical specialists to provide medical assistance and help relieve pressure on health systems strained by the Venezuelan migration crisis.The ceremony signifies that medical sites are fully operational and will treat hundreds of patients during its mission.“Since Panama took its first steps as a republic, we’ve had the U.S. helping us in the health system,” said Panamanian Vice Minister of Health Luis Francisco Sucre. “What better way to strengthen bonds between the people of the United States and the people of Panama by providing health care and good quality of attention to all of our population.”The Comfort team consists of more than 900 personnel, including military, nongovernmental organization volunteers, and personnel from partner nations.“As brother countries we reflect our alliances with Panama and Latin America,” said U.S. Navy Captain Matthew Turner, senior Defense cooperation officer in Panama. “Panama is a key partner to take on regional issues. We are happy to take the challenges of health issues side by side.” This marks the fourth Comfort visit to Panama and the seventh to the region since 2007. The embarked medical teams will provide care aboard Comfort and at two land-based medical sites.This mission stop is part of U.S. Southern Command’s Enduring Promise initiative and reflects the United States’ ongoing commitment to friendship, partnership, and solidarity with partner nations in the Caribbean, Central America, and South America.last_img read more

Starting Football Programs

first_imgTwo of the areas’ young coaches are learning how hard it is to either start a football program from scratch or revive one which has taken its lumps for several years. In the case of a new program, like OA, you will fight the numbers game. When your enrollment hovers below 200, you are never going to get the kids out like an East Central will. If you only win one game for two or more years, it is hard to get more than about 30 kids out even if you have 900 in the high school. This is what Chris Nobbe found when he took over the head job at South Dearborn. It is hard to predict which program will prosper faster. OA under Wes Gillman has one advantage in that they will be playing a lot of 1-A schools just like they are. Chris, on the other hand, is faced with playing 3-A to 6-A schools. Even if he has more athletes, his competition level in the EIAC is never going to be easy. Both of these young men had stellar high school careers in football. Coach Gillman came within one game of leading the Wildcats of Franklin County to a state title. A knee injury in the title game probably cost him that achievement. Chris was a 3-sport star at Batesville High School, and despite his size, always played bigger than he really was. He only had one gear and that was wide open. Both of these young men, given enough time, will give their respective schools football programs that they will be proud of.last_img read more

NA LCS roundup: teams officially confirm entry

first_imgLast but not least, 100 Thieves will be hoping to steal a trophy or two as they officially enter the franchise system. Led by the esports experience of Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag, and the sporting expertise of the Cleveland Cavaliers, the organisation has already secured the services of pr0lly, one of the most respected coaches in the LCS.Unfortunately, the acceptance of so many new brands comes at the cost of old ones, the most contentious of which was undoubtedly Immortals’ exit from the NA LCS. The team has since made a statement on its dismissal, in which Noah Whinston addressed the fans and urged them to continue to support the organisation in other endeavours.Esports Insider says: It’s been a real rollercoaster for the NA LCS since the franchise system was announced; finally, that ride comes to an end, just in time for all the juicy drama of off-season player transfers to kick in. Good luck to all ten organisations who made the cut, and even more to those who didn’t. We look forward to seeing the NA LCS reach even greater heights under the new system. It’s been a long time coming, but amidst the dramatic hubbub of a crazy start to the transfer window, North American LCS teams have been making official statements on their bids into the new franchise system.Copyright – ESL | Helena KristianssonIn case you haven’t heard, the NA League of Legends Championship Series will be reformatting from 2018 onwards, with the league franchising and existing teams forced to compete with fresh applicants for spots in the new system.The news was followed by a steady stream of reports last month that leaked the supposed successful entrants, which reached a finale on the 20th of October as the Houston Rockets were the tenth and last application rumoured to have been granted a spot.Those reports have finally been granted credence as Riot Games made an official team announcement down on the corner of the LoL Esports site. The page includes a brief introduction to each organisation, some social links, and groovy wallpapers which also give us a glimpse into the new team logos.The teamsThe Golden Guardians come from arguably the NBA’s biggest team, and they’ll be hoping to replicate the success of the Golden State Warriors in League of Legends. The team has just announced Hunter Leigh as the head of its esports division to lend them his know-how in their pursuit of success.Echo Fox have confirmed their re-entry. The team was recently included as part of an investment partnership between Vision Esports and the New York Yankees. A dramatic announcement video features some spicy words from famous owner Rick Fox, who has one simple goal: to win.Clutch Gaming (previously rumoured to be called Clutch City Gaming) are the squad bankrolled by the Houston Rockets, and they’re already “looking forward to kicking ass”. They will also rock one of the tastiest logos in the NA LCS.It’s definitely no surprise to see Team SoloMid back in the league. The team is one of the most established and well known esports organisations in the world, and have dominated the NA LCS since its inception. Their announcement was accompanied by a video from Reginald promising an increase in budget, which is sure to please TSM fans.Fan favourites Cloud9 are another squad looking to build on past success in North America. They have attended every Worlds since storming into the NA LCS in 2013, a history that doesn’t look too shabby when recounted in their video announcement.FlyQuest are a team who some were surprised to see make the cut, but news of their successful application to franchising was accompanied by a heart-on-sleeve open letter, in which they promised “We WILL do better”. A video heavily featuring AD carry Wildturtle might suggest they are looking to build a new team (or brand) around him, and accompanies a fresh new logo. Team Liquid are back “with something to prove”, and it certainly seems that way after the team has seemingly been involved with every rumoured player purchase in the offseason so far. Their announcement was embellished by a pair of videos with quotes and memes aplenty, including a terrific shot of co-CEO and co-owner Steve Arhancet shooting dollar bills whilst a dirty dubstep beat drops in the background. 10/10.Famed FPS powerhouse OpTic Gaming make their entry into League of Legends official. The organisation is reputed for having one of the fiercest followings in esports, and now the Green Wall is coming to the NA LCS.It wouldn’t be the LCS without Counter Logic Gaming, and CLG is back for another run at success. The oldest competitive League of Legends team will again take to the Rift on the North American stage, and they have a lot of history to live up to.last_img read more

Wild, wacky weekend leads to 40-plus game suspensions

first_imgBy Bruce Fuhr,The Nelson Daily SportsThere must have been a full moon hanging over the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League this past weekend.Why else would 16 players be suspended for a total of 44 games over three days?“I don’t know maybe it really was a full moon,” KIJHL president Bill Ohlhausen said when asked if he knew why all the line brawls. “I have to admit as the president I’m a little disappointed but maybe it’s getting close to Christmas and the players are not thinking about the rules that are in place to stop these sort of events from happening.”The craziness started when Columbia Valley’s Guillaume Glasspoole was hit with a match penalty Friday. His sentence, three games.In Fruitvale Saturday, gloves starting flying between Beaver Valley and Nelson with 2:07 remaining in the third period.The line brawl cost Hawks’ Keanan Patershuk and Arie Postmus and Blake Arcuri and Cody Abbey of the Leafs each three games for multiple fights in the same stoppage.
Game referee Jim Maniago handed out more than 145 minutes in penalties.Four Columbia Valley players and five from the Penticton Lakers were also suspended for, what else, multiple fights in the same stoppage.“The message is already out there,” Ohlhausen exclaimed. “Hockey Canada has decided any major penalty in the last 10 minutes o the game is an automatic one-game suspension.”“And multiple fights in the final 10 minutes or after the game are all things we as a league are trying to get through to the players that will not be tolerated,” Ohlhausen added. “It’s the same message the NHL is using to try to stop fighting.”Nelson coach Chris Shaw feels emotions may have started to escalate during an earlier game in Nelson between the Hawks and Leafs.Those emotions hit the boiling point during the final minutes Saturday.“It wasn’t anything that was cheap or dirty,” Shaw explained. “It was kind of a situation that happened where one player went to protect another one and then the other player went to protect his player that all turned into a line brawl.”“It’s not something that’s uncommon in the past in hockey but now a days you don’t see it happen that often,” added Shaw, part of the collateral damage from Saturday night, suspended for one game for his team being involved in four fights in the game.Abbey and Arcuri started serving their three-game suspensions Sunday, watching from the stands Nelson lose 6-5 in double-overtime. The pair is due to return January 2, 2011 in Spokane when Nelson faces the Braves. “I hope it was just a freak thing and it’s all over with now,” Ohlhausen said. “I hope it was just the players ready for the Christmas break and not thinking about the rules.”We can only hope because the next scheduled full moon is set for early January 2011, when the league begins the home stretch to the season following the Christmas [email protected]last_img read more

Craft celebrated on Heritage Day

This year, all around the country festivities will take place under the theme Celebrating South African Craft, Our Heritage.The public holiday is the culmination of the annual Heritage Month campaign, which is overseen by the national Department of Arts and Culture (DAC). The programme is aimed at building national pride and increasing social cohesion through the month-long series of events.On 24 September this year South Africa’s deputy president Kgalema Motlanthe will travel to Moroke, Greater Tubatse municipality, in the north of Limpopo province, to address crowds at the national Heritage Day celebrations.Motlanthe, Arts and Culture Minister Lulama Xingwana, Limpopo Premier Cassel Mathale and other government representatives will lend their weight to the day’s proceedings.To start, there will be a traditional cleansing ceremony at the Bapedi heritage site of Tjate in the historical Sekhukhune district. Here, in 1879, the Bapedi (Pedi people) under King Sekhukhune I fought heroically against colonial occupation, taking on a combined British-Boer-Swazi force. Outnumbered and outgunned, they ultimately lost the battle.This ceremony will be followed by the main event in Moroke. A craft exhibition titled Beautiful Things has been arranged as part of the celebrations, where crafters from all nine provinces will be able to sell their wares. Various cultural groups will also perform.While this is the national event, other functions are planned for elsewhere in the country – these include street parades, craft exhibitions and the launch of various Investing in Culture projects.The DAC’s Investing in Culture programme supports craft initiatives around the country, 40% of them in rural areas, through funding and training. Since the programme’s inception in 2005 it has invested about US$40-million (over R300-million) in craft projects.Thriving craft sectorSpeaking at the launch of Heritage Month at the world heritage site of Mapungubwe in Limpopo earlier in September, Xingwana emphasised the craft sector’s important socio-economic impact.About 38 000 people earn a living through an estimated 7 000 small enterprises around the country, and 1.2-million in total support themselves and their families through craft and related enterprises.Moreover, the Department of Trade and Industry estimates that craft contributes $269-million (R2-billion) or 0.14% to South Africa’s GDP annually.“The crafts sector can also be used as a catalyst for rural economic development and for fostering expanded participation in the economy, especially by women,” said Xingwana. South Africa’s crafters are predominantly female.Xingwana deplored the exploitation of rural crafters by intermediaries and unscrupulous retailers, adding that access to reputable markets is an ongoing problem. She also noted the lack of a national body to represent this sector, saying that as individuals, crafters do not have a strong enough voice to negotiate on pricing and often they have to take what they can get.“Paying attention to the crafts industry will help forge a national identity,” she said, “restore respect between the knowledge holders who transmit skills to our youth, and promote Proudly South African products and their economic potential to South Africans”.On the eve of Heritage Day Xingwana will host a gala dinner in Polokwane, Limpopo’s capital. At this event DAC and the Old Mutual Foundation, the social investment arm of financial services group Old Mutual, will sign a memorandum of understanding to collaborate in helping crafters with basic business and leadership training, and better access to markets.Sizzling celebrationNot only is the 24 September a celebration of culture and craft, it’s also designated National Braai Day. This event falls in line with the vision of Heritage Day, and that is to bring people together to enjoy one of the country’s great traditions – the braai (Afrikaans, meaning barbeque).The non-profit, non-political organisation Braai4Heritage is behind Braai Day, encouraging South Africans to celebrate this unique aspect of their heritage, while cooking up a storm.This culinary custom originated in the Afrikaner community, but has since transcended demographics and become popular among all ethnic groups and countries in the Southern African region.The patron of National Braai Day is the esteemed Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu. When approached in 2007, Tutu gladly accepted the patronage, saying that the braai is a force for unity.“It’s a fantastic thing, a very simple idea,” enthused the archbishop on the first Braai Day two years ago. “Here is one thing that can unite us irrespective of all of the things that are trying to tear us apart.”The Nobel Peace laureate then reached for an apron and tongs and took his place beside the fire before tucking into a boerewors roll. Boerewors (Afrikaans, meaning farmers’ sausage), a braai essential, is a spiced beef sausage packed into long casings. Popular variations in Southern Africa include flavours such as chilli, garlic and cheese, as well as different meat fillings such as kudu or springbok.Initially the braai idea came under fire from the National Heritage Council due to fears that it would demean Heritage Day, but the meaty organisation later received the blessing of the council and Braai Day has now become a driving force for nation-building.Queries or comments?

Grower organizations encourage manufacturers to implement AgGateway’s ADAPT for precision ag

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest A dozen leading U.S. grower organizations are hailing the collaborative efforts that led to the new AgGateway ADAPT framework for interoperability in precision ag systems – citing the many benefits to farmers, and are calling on Farm Management Information System (FMIS) companies to formally commit to integrating the ADAPT framework into their systems in the near future.The support was expressed in a letter this month to AgGateway Chairman David Black from the American Farm Bureau Federation, American Soybean Association, National Association of Wheat Growers, National Barley Growers Association, National Corn Growers Association, National Cotton Council, National Farmers Union, National Sorghum Producers, National Sunflower Association, U.S. Canola Association, U.S. Dry Bean Council, and USA Rice.“Over the last decade, the most consistent concern raised by farmers using precision ag is that ‘different systems won’t work together,’” the letter states. “The farm and commodity groups are pleased that AgGateway member companies worked collectively to solve this problem by creating ADAPT…. As organizations representing producers of all commodities and in all 50 states, we offer our support to encourage FMIS companies to formally commit to integrating the ADAPT framework in the near future.“We are grateful for this truly impressive show of support from grower organizations, and are ready to assist companies — and get their feedback to continually improve ADAPT — as they incorporate this technology into their proprietary systems,” said Mark Stelford, Chairman of AgGateway’s ADAPT Oversight Committee and General Manager of Premier Crop Systems.As AgGateway’s ADAPT is integrated into products, the grower will be much better equipped to manage data across different precision agriculture systems, regardless of the system manufacturer. ADAPT is an open source project, allowing precision ag software providers globally to use the software and to contribute to its continued development. The ADAPT framework is comprised of an Agricultural Application Data Model, a common API (Application Programming Interface), and a combination of open source and proprietary data conversion plug-ins. Developers can access additional information about the ADAPT SDK, as well as access the model, by going to www.ADAPTframework.org.“ADAPT and the accompanying data format enables the interoperability between software systems, service providers and advisors that farmers need to perform their routine operations more efficiently and seamlessly,” said Tarak Reddy, Chair of AgGateway’s ADAPT Technical Committee and Delivery Architect of John Deere Intelligent Solutions Group.Companies that have committed to using ADAPT and releasing plug-ins for many of their proprietary data formats currently include AGCO Corporation, Ag Leader Technology, CLAAS, CNH Industrial, Deere & Company, Praxidyn, Raven Industries, Topcon Precision Agriculture, and Trimble Navigation. The “plug-in” technology allows the ADAPT platform to work with individual, proprietary products.The AgGateway team publicly released the open-source ADAPT — which stands for Agricultural Data Application Programming Toolkit — in February. The timeline for plug-in development will vary by manufacturer this fall and into 2017; some plug-ins are immediately available to FMIS companies, who can check with the manufacturer for availability and licensing details. At the same time, AgGateway members have developed an ISO plug-in to support a broad range of ISO-compatible systems under an open source license.Companies currently participating in AgGateway’s ADAPT Oversight Committee include Ag Connections, Ag Leader, AGCO, Agrian, CNH Industrial, Central Valley Ag Coop, CLAAS, Conservis, Independent Data Management, John Deere, Land O’ Lakes, Monsanto, Premier Crop Systems, ProAg, Raven Industries, Software Solutions Integrated, SST Software, Syngenta, Topcon Precision Agriculture, Trimble, Uptake and ZedX. For more information and to join the work of the committee, contact the committee at [email protected] addition, the ADAPT Oversight Committee met at the AgGateway Annual Conference November 7-10 in Orlando.
