Needless to say, Widespread Panic’s sold-out run from the world famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre earlier this June was one for the books. The Athens, GA products offered up a fiery red-hot three-night run that featured covers of The Band, Tom Waits, Traffic, Yes as well as the Grateful Dead, fittingly enough the same weekend the Core Four members of the Dead kicked off their Fare Thee Well shows in Santa Clara, CA. Now, you can relive Panic’s take on the Dead’s “Cream Puff War” as well as their classic tune “Holden Oversoul” with some pro-shot footage from the Rocks that weekend. Take a look below.

Last weekend, Save Our Stages Fest brought together over 35 nationally-renowned artists from 25 venues across the country. The musicians’ urgent pleas—alongside those of the festival’s organizer, the National Independent Venue Association—were heard loud and clear by audiences, who stepped up to donate over $1.8 million (and counting) to the NIVA Emergency Relief Fund.The three-day virtual festival saw performances from Foo Fighters, Dave Matthews, The Roots, Miley Cyrus, Brittany Howard, Phoebe Bridgers, The Lumineers, Nathaniel Rateliff, Portugal. The Man, The Revivalists, and many more. These artists appeared at such legendary venues as the 9:30 Club, Appolo Theater, Belly Up Tavern, Boulder Theater, Exit / In, The Independent, Preservation Hall, Ryman Auditorium, Tipitina’s, Troubadour, Whisky A Go Go, World Cafe Live, and more from across the country.Related: Founders Of Turkuaz, L4LM Recruit Maggie Rose, Nikki Glaspie, More For ‘Keep Your Mind In Tune’ Episode 3 [Watch]The Save Our Stages Fest funds raised thus far are inclusive of donations made through YouTube Giving’s Donate button, the Save Our Stages website, text to donate (SOSFEST to 44321, which is still active), and merch sales. This came as NIVA’s latest effort to sound the alarm across the country about the dire financial need that independent venues are still suffering from. Since introduced in the Senate back in July, NIVA has campaigned for the passage of the Save Our Stages Act as 90% of venue owners surveyed by the non-profit say that they will be forced to close permanently without immediate government assistance.Videos from Save Our Stages Fest are still available on artists’ YouTube pages, and the donation buttons are still active. Beginning on Saturday, NIVA will kick off Independent Venue Week with a memorabilia auction to benefit the NIVA Emergency Relief Fund. From October 24th—30th, Independent Venue Week will spotlight programming from some of the country’s most treasured music establishments, as well as panel discussions of pressing issues facing the industry. For more information, head to the event’ website.Earlier this month, NIVA won a major victory as the House of Representatives passed the $2.2 trillion Heroes act which was recently amended to include the Save Our Stages Act. The SOS Act offers over $10 billion in much-needed funding for independent venues in the form of loans and non-repayable grants to keep up with payroll and other operating costs. Unfortunately, the Heroes Act still needs approval from the Senate, and President Donald Trump has stated that he will not approve any further COVID-19 stimulus packages until after the November election.

For at least the last five years, Saint Mary’s College President Carol Ann Mooney adopted a policy of admitting and enrolling undocumented students, Vice President for Enrollment Management Mona Bowe said. “Saint Mary’s College does not discriminate on the basis of country of origin, so if a student meets the academic requirements for admission, she would be admitted to the College,” Bowe said. “We believe it is in keeping with Catholic social justice teaching and legacy of the Sisters of Holy Cross that Saint Mary’s admits undocumented students.” A student’s status as undocumented would be confidential information and is protected under the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), Bowe said. “A student’s status as undocumented is confidential,” Bowe said. “However, some students might self-identify as undocumented. This may be to share her story with the College population and/or the media as a way to show the human side of the immigration issue. This would be her decision.” For junior Dara Marquez, a chemical engineering major, the decision to reveal her status as an undocumented immigrant on campus has allowed her to grow both academically and spiritually. Marquez, originally from Mexico but now hailing from Elkhart, Ind., is now protected under “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” (DACA), a program unveiled by President Obama in 2012 giving young undocumented immigrants the right to remain here legally and work for at least two years, provided they are qualified applicants. “Right now I have DACA status,” Marquez said. “Meaning, I have temporary legal status in the United States and have received a temporary social security number to work. Immigration knows I am here, so now I can talk about my status without fear.” She said she attained DACA status while attending Saint Mary’s but was admitted and enrolled as an undocumented student. “Saint Mary’s was really a blessing in disguise for me,” Marquez said. “I didn’t think I would be able to come here because of the cost. I was originally planning on going to a state school because they tend to be cheaper, but with law changes my senior year of high school, public universities were getting more expensive for undocumented students and an administrator at my high school put Saint Mary’s on my radar.” When she first came to Saint Mary’s, Marquez said she was scared to admit her status as an undocumented immigrant to her admissions counselor. She said she is thankful she can discuss her status with College administrators, and for the financial assistance offered to her by the College. “When my admissions counselor called about whether I was planning on enrolling or not, I had to tell her about my situation, including the financial situation of my undocumented family,” Marquez said. “I will always remember her saying on the phone, ‘Nothing is impossible. We will make it work.’ And they did. They were very helpful in finding me scholarships and other types of aid not related to the government.” Bowe said undocumented students are not eligible for federal or state government aid, though no government regulations forbid private funding. As a private institution, Saint Mary’s is free to determine independently how to distribute its financial aid. “Saint Mary’s awards financial aid for all students based on the student’s individual financial need and/or academic merit, under one single policy,” Bowe said. “Awarding less aid to one student does not mean additional aid for a different student, therefore, awarding aid to undocumented students does not take Saint Mary’s dollars away from other students.” Being a part of an undocumented family means the family does not enjoy a stable income, Marquez said. It can be difficult to know your parents have a job today but may not have one tomorrow, she said. “Right now, I tell myself my parents are physically working every day for my education and I am working mentally,” Marquez said. “Mentally, so one day I can say both my parents and I have worked hard enough for me to get my diploma and find a job that will not only support my family, but also one I am passionate about.” Marquez said she is grateful that her Saint Mary’s education gave her the resources and opportunities to choose her own future. “My dad came to the United States first, and my mom and I immigrated one year later,” Marquez said. “My mom and I were separated for three months and when she got to Indiana I could not wait to show her our fridge full of the different soda pop flavors. Unlike in Mexico, she could choose from a variety of flavors. All I want is for my family to be able to choose again — to have the resources to choose a sustainable life.” Marquez said the campus community has overwhelmingly embraced her, even though she is an undocumented immigrant. “I have never felt afraid to reveal my status on this campus,” Marquez said. “It is a very welcoming community, and different departments like Campus Ministry and the Center for Women’s Intercultural Leadership have made it a point to have panels and other types of dialogue about immigration as an issue. This has allowed students to put a human face to the issue and I believe is one of the main reasons I have felt so welcomed into this community.” Marquez maintains a high profile on campus because she is a staunch advocate of immigration reform. Several Saint Mary’s alumnae also have fought actively for the increased rights of undocumented immigrants. Melody Alzarado, a 2012 graduate of the College who is originally from Nicaragua, worked on immigration issues during her time at Saint Mary’s with La Fuerza, a club that promotes Latin-American culture on campus. She said her passion for immigration issues grew during her time at Saint Mary’s, inspiring her to work with community development projects around the issue. “I worked a lot with undocumented students and can honestly say these students are some of the strongest women I have ever encountered,” Alzarado said. “They are driven individuals and I am grateful Saint Mary’s does not discriminate against them based on their status. I think any school can benefit from these students and if they do not admit students based on their status they are missing out on a huge pool of strong, dedicated students.” Novice Sr. Jessica Brock, currently residing at the International Novitiate at Saint Mary’s and the recipient of a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Law and Master of Law degrees, has worked to promote awareness of immigration issues at Saint Mary’s, Notre Dame and Holy Cross College. With her work, Brock has worked directly with undocumented students at Saint Mary’s. “My first impression is to be in awe of how strong the undocumented women at Saint Mary’s are,” Brock said. “Just like any other talented students, these women want the same thing out of a Saint Mary’s education, and I am absolutely inspired by their strength. They all have shown an incredible amount of maturity. Many of them are facing extreme financial challenges with financing their education and I have never heard them complain. “I can without a doubt say they are some of the greatest leaders on campus.” Brock, Alzarado and Marquez said in order to increase discussion about the challenges facing undocumented students, the focus should be on creating dialogue and “getting more people at the table.” The women said increasing dialogue is necessary in order to break down misconceptions and to create an open-minded, welcoming community. “It is about putting a face to the issue,” Marquez. “Once people realize [the issue] is more than politics and is actually about human dignity, the conversation changes” Marquez said the nation will become stronger if conversation about immigration issues, specifically those issues concerning undocumented students, continues to grow. “In President Obama’s first State of the Union address, he talked about the need for our country to be more competitive and innovative,” Marquez said. “Saint Mary’s has allowed me to stimulate my mind, but everyone needs this right [to education]. Everyone should be able to contribute to this dream.”

ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr by. Nicole ReyesEarlier this summer, I posted about hackers going after more than just payment data with their intrusions. The recent news of StubHub’s run-in with cyber thieves is a perfect example of this desire for access to other types of accounts. The online ticket reseller announced customer accounts had been hacked, and the criminals were able to buy tickets to events through the site using the stolen account information.According to the announcement, more than 1,000 accounts were accessed fraudulently. The company said the hackers did not break through Stubhub’s own security. Instead, they obtained Stubhub usernames and passwords from other sources. These include the websites of retailers involved in their own data breaches and malware installed on victims’ computers. Because consumers often use the same login credentials for several sites, the thieves were able to apply the stolen usernames and passwords at Stubhub.Company spokesperson Glenn Lehrman said, “The company detected the unauthorized transactions last year, began working with authorities and gave the affected customers refunds and help changing their passwords.” Although StubHub is based in San Francisco, the case has apparent international reach. In fact, of the arrests made in the case, three were in London, and one was in Toronto.This hack underscores the fact that attackers don’t have to breach your systems to gain access to your customers’ accounts. Vulnerabilities in your customers’ own systems and even poor personal security habits can open your online and mobile banking door just wide enough to let the criminals in. continue reading »

H7 avian flu detected in pair of hunter-shot mallards in state of GeorgiaRoutine testing as part of avian influenza surveillance in wild birds found low levels of H7 RNA in two mallards shot in December by hunters in Georgia’s McIntosh Country.In a news report, the Georgia Farm Bureau said tests were conducted by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) wildlife services, which found small amounts of avian influenza nucleic acid in swab samples collected from the two American green-winged teal ducks. McIntosh County is on the Georgia coast.Robert Cobb, DVM, Georgia’s state veterinarian, said, “We know this virus is out there in the wild year-round and the detection of the virus in these wild ducks serves as a reminder for poultry producers to continue to be vigilant about following recommended biosecurity measures.”In the early spring of 2017, four southeastern states—Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, and Tennessee—reported detections of H7N9 avian influenza at poultry farms. The virus isn’t related to H7N9 circulating in China, and most of the detections involved the low-pathogenic form of the virus.Jan 24 Georgia Farm Bureau report UK detects H5N6 in 3 more locationsThe United Kingdom today reported three more highly pathogenic H5N6 outbreaks that affected three different locations, one of them in London.All of the detections involved wild birds found dead, according to a notification from the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE). Aside from two mute swans found dead in a park in London, the virus was found in a tufted duck found dead in a natural park in the city of Wakefield in West Yorkshire County, about 185 miles north of London, and in eight mallards and a moorhen in Rutland County, about 100 miles north of London. The birds were found on Jan 29, and tests show the virus is a reassortant between H5N8 that has circulated in Europe and European N6 viruses.The UK reported its first H5N6 outbreak in the middle of January, and since then has reported five more. The Netherlands, Germany, and Switzerland have also reported H5N6, which has mostly been found in wild birds.Jan 30 OIE report on H5N6 in the UK
