Today, Tedeschi Trucks Band has released “They Don’t Shine”, the second single from the band’s forthcoming studio album, SIGNS. The upcoming release acts as the band’s first studio effort since 2016’s Let Me Get By, and is scheduled to arrive later this month on February 15th via Fantasy/Concord Records.The 11-track album was co-produced by TTB leader and guitarist Derek Trucks along with Jim Scott and Bobby Tis, and will include all original songs which were recorded live on two-inch analog tape at their Swamp Raga Studio. TTB brethren Warren Haynes, Oliver Wood, Doyle Bramhall II, and Marc Quiñones also appear on the record. Some of the tracks to be included on the album are titled, “Strengthen What Remains”, “Still Your Mind”, “All The World”, and “Hard Case”. The latter was written by Mike Mattison, Derek Trucks, and Susan Tedeschi, and was debuted as the album’s soulful lead single last month.Today’s release, “They Don’t Shine”, is described by the band as a “double shot of straight-ahead rock n roll, complete with a tight 8 bars of guitar heroics by Susan [Tedeschi] and a long fade out that leaves the chorus dancing between your ears even after the song is long gone.” Listen for yourself:Tedeschi Trucks Band – “They Don’t Shine”[Audio: Tedeschi Trucks Band]“SIGNS reflects on the losses suffered by the band in the past few years while still finding cause for hope and celebration in the beauty of life and nature,” the band mentioned in a statement shared to their Facebook last week, dedicating the album to their friend and mentor Col Bruce Hampton (Ret.). Other losses include the recent deaths of TTB mentors like Leon Russell and Allman Brothers Band members Butch Trucks and Gregg Allman.In addition to their upcoming tour dates–including multi-night runs at the Saenger Theatre, Ryman Auditorium, Warner Theatre, and more–Tedeschi Trucks Band will celebrate the official release of SIGNS with a show at Brooklyn Academy of Music in Brooklyn, New York on Wednesday, February 20th.

A coalition of civil society groups has called on the House of Representatives to repeal problematic articles in the revision to the Constitutional Court (MK) Law, alleging they contain conflicts of interest that can harm the Court’s impartiality.Among the coalition members are West Sumatra’s Andalas University’s Constitution Study Center (PUSaKO), Indonesia Center for Law and Policy Studies (PSHK), Indonesia Corruption Watch (ICW) and judicial watchdog KoDe Inisiatif.”The House and the government must drop the article that increases the minimum age of justices to 60 years and it should not scrap the existing regulation that justices can serve for only five years and must be reelected for another term,” Hemi Lavour of Pusako said in an online press conference on Friday. “The articles would only benefits a few justices.”The coalition said that if passed, most Constitutional Court judges who were currently in office would keep their position until they were 70 years old, 10 years longer than the maximum age for justices set in the existing 2011 Constitutional Court Law. The coalition also noted that only one judge could not continue the term because he has not reached the age of 60 at the end of his service.Read also: Constitutional Court rejects judicial review request on tenure of its own judgesAgil Oktrayal of the PSHK lambasted the government and the House, saying the revisions were a constitutional setback, especially because the House never included the bill in the 2020 priority list (Prolegnas) “The House never came up with the academic rationalization related to the amendments,” Agil said.He also raised suspicions that the bill was being used as a “political swapping” tool as many controversial laws were currently being challenged at the Court, such as the state spending and financial relief law, the mining law, the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) Law and the omnibus bill on job creation.Agil further criticized the swift deliberation of the bill, which was conducted behind closed doors between the House and the government during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.“The deliberation process was very quick and closed [to the public]. This goes against the spirit of reform; in the Reform era of 1998, people wanted to have a Constitutional Court,” he said.The court was officially established in 2003 following mounting support from the public who demanded an institution that would allow them to challenge laws or election results. The House Commission III overseeing legal affairs began deliberating the bill on Monday. The government then submitted the problem inventory list (DIM) of the bill on and formed a working committee with the House on Tuesday.On Wednesday and Thursday, the government and the House discussed the bill twice in closed-door hearings.Read also: House starts deliberating Constitutional Court Law revisionCommittee member Sarifuddin Sudding said the commission and the government had agreed on several changes in the bill, such as the extension of the minimum age limit to become a Constitutional Court justice, as well as the terms of office for chief justice, deputy chief justice and justices.If the House and the government can agree on all the revisions, the commission will pass the revision into law.“After that, we will bring the revised draft to a plenary session for the second level of deliberations,” the National Mandate Party (PAN) politician said.Constitutional justice Enny Nurbaningsih denied that the Court had any interest in the revision of the MK law.Enny said the justices would always uphold the Bangalore Principles of Judicial Conduct, which identify six core values of the judiciary, namely independence, impartiality, integrity, propriety, equality, competence and diligence.“The Constitutional Court justices will carry out their tasks independently. This is a non-negotiable principle,” she told The Jakarta Post on Friday.Topics :

Nigeria Football Federation has stated categorically that there has been no election into the executive committee of the Anambra State Football Association. Chairman of Chairmen of Nigerian Football, Alhaji Ibrahim Gusau minced no words in declaring that what took place in the State on Monday, 27th July 2020 and which some stakeholders styled ‘an election’ was a charade of very low grade, and the NFF would never recognize such a sham. “That was an act of brigandage and the NFF fully dissociates itself from it. The Electoral Committee sent to the NFF a letter which they received from the Anambra State COVID-19 Task Force, requesting that the elections into the State FA and the local football councils be postponed, in line with the situation in the country, as the ban on sporting activities and mass gatherings was still alive.Advertisement Loading… “The same Electoral Committee issued a press statement on Monday, 27th July 2020 informing the general public that the elections would no longer hold, and regretted the inconvenience that the sudden postponement may have caused the candidates, delegates, observers, stakeholders and the general public. read also:NFF chieftain Ofo-Okenwa to be buried Friday“In view of these, it is incomprehensible how anyone could have gone ahead with the charade they are calling ‘election’, and you begin to wonder who actually conducted the so-called election,” Gusau said on Tuesday. Gusau, who is also a Member of the NFF Executive Committee, stated further: “That was an affront on the Government and the NFF will never be part of it. The Anambra State COVID-19 Task Force made it clear that there should be no such gathering. It is irksome, and let it be said without ambiguity that the NFF does not recognize such a sham and it cannot stand.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Promoted ContentYou’ve Only Seen Such Colorful Hairdos In A Handful Of Anime7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend BetterThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

The Wisconsin women’s volleyball team will defend its home at the Field House for the second consecutive weekend with matchups against Michigan and Michigan State.The Badgers are hoping to extend their success after a weekend against tough opponents like Ohio State and Penn State. Despite getting off to a strong start and taking the first game, Wisconsin lost its third straight conference match to the Buckeyes 3-1 last Friday.However, the resilient squad was able to bounce back and not only take on the defending national champions, the Penn State Nittany Lions, to five sets, but come out on top. This was the Badger’s first five-set win of the season. The two teams traded sets all the way through the fourth. Then, Wisconsin went on a 7-1 run and never gave up the lead.Freshman setter Courtney Thomas and the rest of the Badgers are happy to have an extra confidence boost but still remain humble.“It was good for us, beating Penn State is awesome,” Thomas said. “It gives us another win that we needed but just beating them doesn’t give us other wins, so we have to come out strong this weekend.”The Badgers’ first opponent is Michigan. Wisconsin was successful against the Wolverines at their home gym in Ann Arbor earlier this season, beating the then No. 18 squad 3-1. The Badgers’ strong offense and blocking helped them upset their second ranked opponent, and with the help of Ellen Chapman’s 12 kills, the Badgers nearly doubled the Wolverine’s hitting percentage.Led in blocks by freshman Crystal Graff and Alexis Mitchell with six blocks apiece, Wisconsin out blocked Michigan 16-10.Head coach Pete Waite was pleased with his team’s consistency and composure last time around and hopes that Graff’s absence won’t affect that same rhythm his players maintained during the previous encounter with the Wolverines.“The biggest thing is staying tight as a team,” Waite said. “Each player has to do what they can to help their teammates out. When they do that, their chemistry starts building and building, and they really are a tight group and they play some really good ball.”The solid and consistent play will be key, especially when defending against Wolverine outside hitter Alex Hunt. Hunt, a senior, previously scored on 15 kills against the Badgers and has had double digit kills in 17 matches, shining even against top ranked opponents such as Nebraska, where the senior tallied 22 kills and 17 digs.Hunt receives the ball from freshman setter Lexi Dannemiller. Dannemiller is a three-time Big Ten Freshman of the Week and has recorded 10 double-doubles so far. The freshman distributed 45 assists in her last meeting with the Badgers and averages 11.63 per set. With Hunt and Dannemiller at their best, Waite expects a much different Michigan team this time around.“I think they were off their game a little bit,” Waite said. “I think we caused some of that, but they are also a very good team. As we watch them on tape, we can see that they are playing some good ball now. Alex Hunt is an All-American who almost scores at will, so we really need to pass well when she is serving and defend well when she is attacking.”Wisconsin will also see strong attacking from Michigan State on Saturday. Previously, the Badgers were defeated 3-1 by the Spartans at their home in East Lansing. Wisconsin fell behind early, losing the first two sets.Despite a 34-32 win in the third set, the Badgers couldn’t hang on during a 6-3 Spartan run in the fourth game to secure the match.Redshirt senior Jenilee Rathje leads the Spartans. The 5’11” outside hitter had a monstrous 26 kills against the Badgers and averages 4.36 kills per set. She is assisted by sophomore setter Kristen Kelsay who adds 6.32 assists per set.“The biggest thing for any team is serving tough and attacking in strong ways so that their setter can’t get to the ball so easily, and I think we have been doing a great job of that,” Waite said. “But Rathje is a good athlete. Some players are going to get their kills. Sometimes it’s a matter of limiting their teammates, and hopefully we will be able to do that.”Playing well defensively will be very important for the Badgers this weekend, especially going up against tough attackers like Hunt and Rathje. Thomas recognizes that defense may be the difference for Wisconsin.“Defense is a really big key,” Thomas said. “Obviously against Penn State we out-dug them so that was great. We can see that if we play really good defense we can run our offense pretty well and come out with a win.”
The University of Wisconsin ended the second half of Tuesday’s game against Pennsylvania State University with a 24-point advantage in the second half, disguising every trace of what was a three-point, pound-for-pound battle in the first.The biggest surprise of Tuesday night was when the Nittany Lions took the locker room at the half six out of 10 from beyond the arc and a 52 percent shooting from the floor. Heading into the match, PSU ranked last in the Big Ten for field goal percentage at 40.9 percent.Gard said his team has a knack for self-diagnosing problems from the first half and constantly communicate what changes need to be made among themselves.“I probably didn’t say anything [at the half] new that they didn’t already hear from a teammate,” Gard said.Men’s basketball: With Minnesota victory locked in, Badgers are ready to take shots at Penn, RutgersThe University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team prevailed Saturday with a thrilling overtime win against the University of Minnesota, but Read…PSU’s leading scorer, junior guard Shep Garner, lead the offensive charge for the team with 9 points on 3-3 attempts from downtown, 3-4 from the floor overall.Every time the Badgers seemed to manufacture a hard-earned bucket, the Lions silenced the Wisconsin faithful with a piercing three from either Garner or Payton Banks.“We had to re-emphasize our rules in transition, and we have to have some pride in that, and we did,” Gard said.On the other end of the hardwood, the Badgers finished the first half just under 40 percent as a team from the floor, and a mere 33 percent from three. The Badger bench wasn’t much a factor either with only two points on 1-5 shooting.Yet, thanks to an enormous second half, the Badgers and Lions traded places in the box score when it came to shooting percentage. Penn State quickly fell behind as a 16-5 run to open the half by Badgers put the Lions in a seemingly insurmountable 14-point hole.“Taking it one possession at a time,” Gard said. “I don’t think there is any magic potion for playing more consistently.”PSU finished with an abysmal 27 percent shooting in the second half, bringing the team’s total below 40 percent while the Badgers used a 15-27 performance to give UW its fourth consecutive game shooting more than 40 percent from the floor.Men’s basketball: No. 15 Wisconsin must shake off fatigue to avoid home upset against Penn StateEthan Happ collapsed triumphantly to the floor near midcourt following the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team’s overtime victory against Read…Wisconsin senior guard Bronson Koenig carried the Badgers throughout the night, posting 10 points in both halves on 8-13 shooting and 4-9 from three.It was a great night for the Badgers’ starters all around, with sophomore forward Ethan Happ posting 14 and senior forward Vitto Brown with 16.PSU head coach Pat Chambers mentioned the difficulty that comes with neutralizing Wisconsin’s big three on offense —Hayes, Happ and Koenig.“It’s pick your poison, you have to take advantage of Happ and Hayes and then Koenig punishes you,” Chambers said.Brown, who left Saturday’s match against the University of Minnesota due to injury, looked at his best against the Lions Tuesday night. Shooting 75 percent from the floor, the 6-foot-8 forward even nailed a pull-up three from the top of the key with a PSU defender in face.“We don’t play to the scoreboard, play every possession as well as possible and then usually the scoreboard takes care of itself,” Gard said.Despite Wisconsin’s 27-point margin of victory, not every aspect of the Badgers game was as glamorous as it appeared. Hayes and Happ both shot an identical 4-8 from the free-throw line, accounting for all eight of Wisconsin’s misses on 29 attempts from the line.
