Tiger Woods named in wrongful-death lawsuit by family of man who died in DUI crash
Written by May 15, 2019 /Sports News – National Tiger Woods named in wrongful-death lawsuit by family of man who died in DUI crash FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPhil Ellsworth / ESPN Images(JUPITER, Fla.) — The family of a man who worked as a bartender at Tiger Woods’ flagship restaurant in Florida has filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against the 15-time Major winner, his girlfriend and the restaurant. Nicholas Immesberger, 24, had a blood alcohol level that was more than three times the legal limit when he crashed his car on Dec. 10, 2018, according to his family. The lawsuit was filed on Monday. Lawyers for the family held a news conference on Tuesday during which they said that on the day he died, Immesberger had worked a lunch shift and then spent three hours drinking at the bar, called The Woods, before setting off for home. His family says that he was served alcohol to the point of “severe intoxication.”Neither Woods nor his girlfriend, Erica Herman — who works as a general manager at the Jupiter, Florida, bar — were there on the day Immesberger died, Spencer Kuvin, a lawyer for the family, said on Tuesday. He claimed, however, that Woods was aware of Immesberger’s addiction to alcohol.The family’s attorneys also claim that video showing Immesberger drinking at the restaurant’s bar after work on the night he died had been destroyed.Lawyers for the Immesberger family said the lawsuit was intended to “prevent the further destruction of evidence.”“Tiger, Erica and The Woods staff all knew that Nick had a disease. He was addicted to alcohol,” said Craig Goldenfarb, another lawyer for the family, during the news conference.The pro golfer, who received the Medal of Freedom from President Trump on May 6, addressed the issue at a news conference Tuesday for this week’s PGA championship.“We are all very sad that Nick passed away. It was a terrible, terrible night, terrible ending and just…we feel bad for him and his entire family. … It’s very sad,” Woods said.Immesberger’s parents say he was planning on going back to school to become a firefighter. They are now seeking unspecified monetary damages. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved. Beau Lund
When women were in charge
Dear editor: (Re: Rachel Hodes, Hoboken Democratic Committee, on sexual harassment of women, Dec. 10) Remember Time magazine’s annual Man Of The Year? In those days, only men made history. But in 2017 Time has a “Person of the Year”, and that “person”? women, who are “The Silence Breakers, the Voices that Launched a Movement.” The movement began when a woman, allegedly groped and nearly raped by powerful movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, spoke out. Wow shock after her lonely voice, the deluge.Women all over the country began speaking out, naming names, and nearly every day since, some powerful man, his reputation and career ruined, retires in guilty disgrace. Observers of our national scene are wondering if the time isn’t approaching when men, who have made a mess of things, are about to be shouldered aside by women, and Time does report that more women are running for political office about time. When women ruled, the world was a happier place. Women ruled?The two great apes that we humans most resemble, that we share 98% of our genes with, are the chimpanzees and the bonobos. Both these apes live in south central Africa, the chimps north of the Congo River, bonobos to the south. But the difference between them is like night and day. Chimpanzees are violent and warlike and patriarchal, males always fighting for dominance. Female chimps are only ready for sex in estrus, a fact highly frustrating for the testosterone-laden males, who relieve their frustration through aggression and fighting neighboring tribes of chimps.Bonobo females are receptive at any time, and not only receptive, which implies passivity, they are also givers, initiators, in fact all bonobos seem ready for sexual encounters all day long, shocking the missionary wives (habituated to only one, supine, position) who first beheld them in their little Eden. Their society is matriarchal. Females rule the roost. When arguments arise, fighting is avoided by sex and kissing. If that doesn’t work, and if some knucklehead male does get out of hand, several sisters will beat him up. But males in bonobo society are content. Why wouldn’t they be? What else can a sane male desire but enough fruit to eat and sexually active and inventive females all around him?The reason our world is in such a violent, chaotic mess is that those of us who carry chimpanzee genes have become our rulers. There is historical evidence that human society was once matriarchal, ruled by bonobos, but, according to Merlin Stone (When God Was a Woman), there appeared in the Middle East a chimpanzee god who ordered his followers to destroy all the bonobo-inhabited towns in Canaan, to “utterly destroy all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox, and sheep, and ass, with the edge of the sword, you shall save alive nothing that breathes”, and his followers did so, installing patriarchal rule where female sexuality was strictly controlled by males, as it is to this day among Jews, Muslims and Christians.Proof of the difference between warlike chimps and peaceful bonobos is this: When the Brits and Americans were bombing civilians and destroying ancient cities of defenseless Germany in the final days of WW2, the bonobos in the Munich zoo died of heart attacks when bombs fell nearby, the chimps survived.T.

Listen To Pigeons Playing Ping Pong Play A One-Song, 63-Minute “Funk E Zekiel” Set On Nugs.Net
Over the weekend, the funk-jammers of Pigeons Playing Ping Pong were in the Northeast, finishing out a four-night run that took the Baltimore-based band to Providence, Rhode Island, and Burlington, Vermont, ahead of a two-night stand at Portland, Maine’s Port City Music Hall. After a standout and sold-out first show at Port City Music Hall on Saturday night, Pigeons returned to the yet-again sold-out Portland venue and proved the age-old adage, “Never Miss A Sunday Show”, on Sunday night.Coming off a fiery show the previous night and without any opening support, Pigeons blew through their first set, opening up the show first with two well-segued songs off 2016’s Pleasure, “Burning Up My Time” and “Pop Off”. After Psychology favorite “Melting Lights” and a take on “Offshoot”, the band launched into a high-octane string of songs to close out set one. Early fan-favorite “Stay” was used to house a standout cover of Nirvana’s “Come As You Are”, followed by takes on “Kiwi” and “Fortress”. Ending the first set with a bang, Pigeons offered up a rendition of “Doc”, off the group’s most recent studio album, Pizazz.However, the pinnacle of Pigeons’ Sunday performance was their historic second set, which saw the band lay out an hourlong, single-song set built around the band’s early classic, “Funk E. Zekiel”. With a focus on extending and pushing the limits of the jam, throughout their out-of-left-field jam, the band built off “Funk E. Zekiel”, eventually segueing the tune to jam on the triumphant theme song from Chariots of Fire.Thankfully, the entire mind-blowing performance from Pigeons Playing Ping Pong is now available on nugs.net. Head here to listen to the extended, one-song second set. You can also check out a full gallery of Sunday night’s performance below, courtesy of Vic Brazen.Setlist: Pigeons Playing Ping Pong | Port City Music Hall | Portland, ME | 4/15/2018 Set One: Burning Up My Time > Pop Off, Melting Lights > Offshoot, Stay > Come As You Are* > Stay > Kiwi > Fortress, DocSet Two: Funk E Zekiel +Encore: Somethin’ For Ya > Havana > Fun In FunkNotes: * Nirvana cover | + 63 minute version, with Chariots of Fire teaseAlready, word of Pigeon’s Sunday performance has begun circulating on social media and message forums, given the fact that Pigeons Playing Ping Pong’s one-song second set was unprecedented. However, while Sunday’s second set might have been a deviation from the group’s norms, the set falls in line with a long history of jam bands testing their limits of how far they can stretch a jam. Realistically, for decades, young and energetic jam bands have been challenging themselves to stretch single-song performances for as long as they can.For example, during Phish’s 1997 Fall Tour, the group laid out a 59+ minute “Runaway Jim” at the Worcester Centrum Centre on November 29th. This legendary “Runaway Jim” marks the longest jam Phish has ever played from a specific song—excluding solely jam-oriented performances like the late-night disco set at The Great Went, the Tower Jam at IT, Ball Square Jam at Super Ball IX, or the Drive-In set at Magnaball.In terms of one-song sets, Benevento/Russo Duo featuring Mike Gordon previously executed a one-song first set in 2005 during a performance at The Georgia Theatre on April 27th, 2005. Ringing in at 54-minutes, the trio built off the tune “Foam”, offering up a plethora of well-worked teases as the jam unfolded.These examples are just prominent ones that stand out, though a number of other jam bands have taken on the challenge to push themselves to jam songs for long periods of time. The Disco Biscuits “Movie Jams” from fall 2001 saw the band improvising their own scores for various movies, making for some unique and lengthy improvisations. Slightly before that fall run, in 1999, for the Biscuits’ famed Akira New Years Eve jam, the group improvised a set for an hour and 45 minutes.Even more recently, with slightly newer bands, the challenge to stretch improvisations has continued to draw certain artists in. One of Pigeons’ contemporaries, Spafford, has gained fame for frequently stretching songs to their limit, with multiple instances of one or two song sets under their belt. Going back a little further, Dopapod has previously released a 56-minute cover of Pink Floyd’s “Echoes”, and Reed Mathis & Electric Beethoven have released a live re-imagining of the first movement of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3 titled “In Memory Of A Great Man” that rings in at 50-minutes.So, let’s remember that while it might be fun to immediately compare artists, historically, taking on this challenge has inherently been a hallmark of a successful and dynamic group in its own right, with a long line of past artists similarly pushing themselves to take their improvisational abilities to their limits. Regardless, we’re super psyched to see Pigeons enter this new territory in their career, which will inevitably be talked about for years to come, and to see how they continue to push themselves to grow and evolve. Cheers Pigeons, and mad respect!Photos: Pigeons Playing Ping Pong | Port City Music Hall | Portland, ME | 4/15/20 | Credit: Vic Brazen Photo: Vic Brazen Photo: Vic Brazen Photo: Vic Brazen Load remaining images

Student government hosts annual Majors Night
The East Wing of South Dining Hall was loud, busy and full of students Monday night, but not because of the dinnertime rush. Approximately 600 students attended the seventh annual Majors Night, organized by student government’s academic affairs department and held from 6 to 8 p.m. Neal Ravindra, chair of the academic affairs committee, said information was provided about the many majors available on campus, but also about minors, research opportunities, opportunities to volunteer, internships and scholarships. “The primary purpose was to answer any questions students may have about their course of study at Notre Dame and to allow students to learn about opportunities outside the classroom — to both lessen confusion and to inform,” Ravindra said. “[I went] to check out all of the majors and minors that interest me,” he said. “I think they did a great job of displaying information and having people talk about the experience of the students in each program.” Freshman Ashley Armstrong said she knows she wants to study engineering, but she is not sure what kind. “I enjoyed the time I spent here and talked to a lot of people about engineering,” she said. “I also talked to someone from CUSE; it was very informative and I now plan to apply for funding so I can do research in London over the summer. I didn’t know Notre Dame would pay for something like that.” Ravindra said the majority of the students in attendance were freshmen. He said traditionally, not many sophomores, juniors or seniors attend the event, even though many groups were represented at the event, all of which offer valuable opportunities to upperclassmen. He also said students who already have a major can still come to learn about other academic opportunities. “It is the best and quickest way for upperclassmen to learn about adding minors or concentrations,” Ravindra said. Sophomore Michael Neuberger said he is not sure what course of study he wants to follow, and went to Majors Night to learn more about the different opportunities. “I’m unsure about what major I want. I just switched from the business school to political science, but I’m also looking at other possible Arts and Letters majors,” Neuberger said. “I officially declared as a political science major today, so I came here to grab some of the information sheets they are handing out.” Ravindra said the event is also important for various members of the Notre Dame faculty. “It allows faculty to disseminate information about their departments, meet new students and recruit students,” he said. Program of Liberal Studies (PLS) professor Tom Stapleford said Majors Night is a great way for the department to reach out to students. “Not many students know about the Program of Liberal Studies. It is a great way for us to get the word out to students and a great opportunity for them to ask questions of us,” Stapleford said. Students were asked to complete and submit a survey about their experience at the event and Ravindra said the results will be used to maintain and improve the event in the future. “The survey allows us to see what’s working and what’s not working,” Ravindra said.
