Late last year, Medeski Martin & Wood were set to celebrate their 25th anniversary with three shows at intimate NYC venue (le) poisson rouge. Those shows were rescheduled due to health issues with bassist Chris Wood, ultimately being pushed back until after the New Year. Though the 25th anniversary shows are now being held during the band’s 26th year together, the feeling was much the same, as the three renowned musicians took the stage with determination for the first of three nights yesterday.LPR is a venue that holds 700 people – certainly an underplay for a band as well respected as MMW. The sold out crowd was particularly enthusiastic, packing the intimate room but never stepping on each other’s toes in the process. As Medeski Martin & Wood emerged in the burgeoning NYC jam scene of the 1990’s, the intimate performance must have felt like a family reunion of sorts, rekindling the old flames with some great music, setting, and crowd.The trio opened the show with three members of the Ho-Chunk Native American tribe, who chanted and played percussion while simultaneously decked in Green Bay Packers jerseys. You can see them in the following photo.After the emotional opening performance, it was time for the musical odyssey that is John Medeski, Billy Martin and Chris Wood. The trio locked in immediately, as if no time had passed since their last performance months ago. Their music is a seamless blend that explores the realms of jazz, funk, ambient, avant garde and downright psychedelic sonic exploration. At times groovy and at other times cosmic, this was MMW at their finest. After 25(+1) years, they’re more than a band, but a instinctual musical unit that ebbs and flows to perfection.Songs played throughout the night include opening number “Think” and set one closing tune, “I Wanna Ride You.” The show also included performances of “Night Marchers,” “Shack Man,” “Buster,” “Jelly Belly,” “Chubb Sub” and an encore of “Just Like I Pictured It.” Below, check out a pair of videos captured from the event.

After six months of little playing time, Australian shot-stopper Mark Schwarzer will play for Leicester City on a permanent deal, according to both clubs.With the transfer window open, it was just a matter of time for Chelsea to make a move regarding their goalkeepers. While all eyes were set on the possible departure of Petr Cech, it was Mark Schwarzer who went ahead and signed for Leicester City on a permanent deal until June 2016.Earlier this week, Jose Mourinho thanked the Australian for his commitment with the team, stating he will be missed not only for the player he is, but more for the team-mate and friend he was.As a goalkeeper, when we needed Schwarzer, he was there for us, and as a person and a professional he was an amazing guy in our group. On behalf of myself, my staff and my players I want to say we are going to miss the big guy and we wish him all the best in his new life at Leicester,” Mourinho said.Schwarzer played 12 games for Chelsea last season, including a substitute appearance in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League semi-final against Atletico Madrid. He played against Liverpool during that memorable victory against Liverpool at Anfield Road.On the other hand, the Foxes greeted their new signing while informing their fans of Schwarzer’s resume.”Mark, 42, joins the Foxes on a free transfer from Chelsea and brings a wealth of top-flight experience to the Foxes squad. The Australian international stopper has made over 500 Barclays Premier League appearances for Middlesbrough, Fulham and the Blues over 18 years and is part of an elite goalkeepers’ club, alongside Petr Cech and David James, to have kept 150 Premier League clean sheets,” can be read on the team’s website.

LATEST STORIES Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH “You understand the magnitude of decisions that you make in your life can affect a lot of people all at once,” Irving said in the more than 4-minute video . “And when you get to that point and you understand that the best intentions for you and ultimately to be in your truth, and find out what you really want to do in your life and how you want to accomplish it — that moment comes and you take full advantage of it.“And there are no other ulterior reasons other than being happy and to be somewhere you feel like it’s an environment that’s conducive for you maximizing your potential.”Irving apparently felt it was time to get out from under the colossal shadow cast by James. The pair won an NBA title together — the first for any Cleveland team since 1964 — in 2016, but Irving did not single out James in his video or the accompanying note.When the Cavs first announced Irving’s trade on Aug. 22, James offered praise to his younger teammate on Twitter , saying: “Special talent/guy! Nothing but respect and what a ride it was our 3 years together.”Irving’s comments were his first since the trade. He was sent to the Celtics for All-Star guard Isaiah Thomas, forward Jae Crowder, center Ante Zizic and the 2018 first-round pick Boston acquired from Brooklyn.ADVERTISEMENT Arellano’s Lervin Flores crowned new NCAA slam dunk king SEA Games in Calabarzon safe, secure – Solcom chief In a meeting last month with Cleveland owner Dan Gilbert, Irving said he wanted out.

Michigan State Eron Harris Eron Harris hasn’t yet suited up in a game for Michigan State’s basketball program, but we feel it’s safe to say the Spartans’ fan base is going to like him very much. The former West Virginia guard transferred into MSU’s program this offseason and will be eligible for the 2016-17 season after sitting out the upcoming season due to NCAA rules. Once he’s eligible, watch out. He’s not only a great scorer (averaged 17 points a game at WVU last season) but also a freak athlete, as he proved at MSU’s Breslin Center earlier today. Check out this video of Harris throwing down some ridiculous dunks, courtesy of MSU guard Denzel Valentine. Whoa. Michigan State’s fan base is definitely going to like him.
It was announced today that the award-winning new documentary A Whole Lott More will have its New York Gala Premiere on Monday, March 10th, at 6:30 p.m., as part of ReelAbilities: NY Disabilities Film Festival, at the JCC in Manhattan located at 334 Amsterdam Ave at West 76th street.The Premiere screening will be introduced by Emmy-nominee Victor Buhler, the director of A Whole Lott More, and by Wanda Huber, who is featured prominently in the film.Following the screening, Tamsen Fadal – Emmy-winning anchor, PIX 11 News – will moderate a Q&A with Executive Producer Loreen Arbus, President & CEO of The Loreen Arbus Foundation, Inc., Jacqueline Conley Director, Program Services, United Cerebral Palsy of New York City and John Sasso, Assistant Director, IT Services, Northeast AccessAbilities Leader, Ernst & Young, LLP.A Whole Lott More has already won the Audience Awards at both the Toronto HotDocs Festival and the Indie Memphis Film Festival, and Best Documentary at the Cincinnati Film Festival.A Whole Lott More began when director Victor Buhler, motivated by a car accident that left him in a wheelchair, decided to tell the powerful story of an Ohio company that hired primarily workers with disabilities, yet had been able to compete for decades, until the collapse of the auto industry gave the company a year to reinvent itself and find new contracts or close down. A Whole Lott More examines work and disability through new perspectives, revealing the struggles of over 8 million people in America with developmental disabilities to join the work force. It is a film about the great spirit of the American worker, about the economy, and about three unforgettable characters – who happen to have a developmental disability – and their quest for a job.A Whole Lott More will also have three other screenings: • Hunter College – March 6th at 7:00 p.m. • The Actor’s Fund in Brooklyn – March 10th at 7:00 p.m. • Jacob Burns Center (Pleasantville, NY) – March 13th at 7:30 p.m.To purchase tickets to the New York Premiere of A Whole Lott More at the ReelAbilities: NY Disabilities Film Festival or additional screenings on March 6 and March 10th click here.

Bradley Roby is coming back. The Ohio State redshirt sophomore cornerback is returning to Columbus for his junior season after flirting with the possibility of declaring for the 2013 NFL Draft, according to multiple reports. Roby, who was named an Associated Press second-team All-American and consensus All-Big Ten selection, played a considerable role on the defensive side of the ball during the Buckeyes’ undefeated 2012 season. Under the director of coach Urban Meyer, OSU finished the year 12-0 and is currently ranked No. 3 in the AP’s top-25 poll. Roby, who secured 63 tackles in addition to 17 pass breakups and two interceptions, will return to a defense that loses its starting defensive line, two of its starting linebackers, and fellow cornerback Travis Howard. Roby’s teammate, junior defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins, opted to forgo his senior year and enter the draft instead. While Roby arguably played as consistently as any Buckeye throughout the season, perhaps his most notable game was against Nebraska on Oct. 6 when he recorded two interceptions, one of which he returned for a first-quarter touchdown to open the scoring. OSU went on to win, 63-38. At practice the next week, OSU cornerbacks coach Kerry Coombs told reporters that Roby would be a “first-round pick down the road.” “A kid like Bradley, whose film study is extraordinary, hours and hours of film study, he’ll know his opponent. He understands the route that’s coming, he’s prepared for the ball when it comes and then you go to finish those plays,” Coombs said Oct. 8. “He’s the guy that wants to make plays, that needs to make plays for our team to be successful.” Roby’s decision will likely help solidify Meyer’s Buckeyes as one of the early favorites for the 2014 BCS National Championship.
In December 2014, Maurice Clarett spoke at a correctional facility in Marion, Ohio. There, the former Ohio State star running back sparked a relationship with Gary Mohr, the Director of the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction over prison reform discourse.On Wednesday at the Riffe Center in downtown Columbus, Clarett is one of four speakers — along with Mohr — as a part of the U.S. Justice Action Network’s discussion on Ohio’s options to improve public safety and overall effectiveness of its justice system, per the release.“It opens the conversations to ‘Hey, not everybody needs prison,’” Clarett said. “When guys seem to get in trouble, it’s not like a one size fits all. It’s not like, ‘Hey, throw them in jail and everything will be repaired.’ It’s really setting that extra layer of offering some sort of deterrence and redirection.”Clarett was a member of the 2002 OSU national championship team, then found himself in trouble and was eventually kicked out of the program. He spent three-and-a-half years behind bars at Toledo Correctional Institution on charges of aggravated robbery.That’s where his life began to change.Former OSU running back Maurice Clarett speaks at an OUAB event Feb. 20, 2014 in the Archie Griffin Ballroom at the Ohio Union.Credit: Lantern file photoKhellah Konteh, warden of Toledo at the time, was arguably the biggest influence on Clarett and the reason he was able to turn his life around. Konteh placed Clarett into programs where Clarett began to feel a purpose. Clarett said that Konteh told him that he believed in him and made him feel appreciated, which helped him to assimilate into a brotherhood through rehabilitation.“He ran the prison right,” Clarett said. “If you want to look at the model example, you can look at Kellah Konteh. He was the warden of the year for a reason. Just the way he engaged with guys and tried to rejuvenate their lives and just so much stuff he did. I can go on and on and on, but the man changed my life.”Once he was released from prison, Clarett began speaking to high school students, which evolved into larger groups of individuals and eventually sparked a cross-country tour in 2015 to football programs such as Florida State, Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi State and TCU.In June 2016, Clarett opened an intensive outpatient program known as The Red Zone, which offers alcohol and drug addiction treatments and mental health problems among other services. The Red Zone works with roughly 300 families, and houses 30 men and 15 women.His speech on Wednesday serves as one of several steps toward a goal of community integration for people when their sentences end and a more centralized focus on rehabilitation for criminals.In prison, if you don’t get it yourself, it’s not going to happen. And the prison doesn’t do a great job of creating circumstances for you to grow. I can speak to that from experience. – Maurice ClarettWhen Clarett was released from prison, he said, there wasn’t anywhere for him to turn to except the same areas where he would continually get into trouble or areas that had a criminal mentality. That experience made Clarett realize that there are other circumstances at play. Some people who continue to go back to jail aren’t necessarily given a chance based on their circumstances. Without the appropriate resources, how can these people change and stay out of prison?“Our society can be better and open to accepting more people who have felony convictions or different hindrances,” Clarett said. “There is a lot of laws that are in place — like MDO (major drug offender) — there’s a tremendous amount of laws and a tremendous amount of languaging that goes in place that shouldn’t necessarily be in place … There needs to be more professionals inside the system. There needs to be more social workers inside the system. It’s kind of insane to believe that the gentleman or the woman who happens to be the correctional officer, who happens to have the most contact with the inmates, happens to be the least educated.”The Red Zone is located in Youngstown, Ohio — Clarett’s hometown. He splits his time between his roots and his current city of Columbus. A native of Canal Winchester, nearly 20 miles outside of the city, Clarett sees a lot of the same problems in Youngstown present in Columbus. In 2016, Columbus’ homicide rate was seventh highest in the country and the city has one of the nation’s largest opioid problems.Among several social constructs that factor into criminal activity, Clarett said education is one that correlates to abusers of alcohol and drugs and those with mental health issues.“Society is such in a way that if you don’t make it to college, you’re almost forgotten about. If you don’t make it to college, either community college or state college or university of some sorts, society just doesn’t have any resources for you,” he said. “Guys that have been left out that don’t have guidance, and they’re done with high school, they’re in between jobs, they don’t have a set of skills, and for whatever reason, things just break down and they just can’t piece this thing together … There are places to help you develop if you’re stuck in that rut. Prison often isn’t the best platform for guys to spring from. Prison is often one of the worst places to go to learn more about what you’ve learned before to get you into that space.”Clarett doesn’t claim to be knowledgeable on the facts and the studies of prison rehabilitation. That’s where Mohr and Robert Alt, president of the Buckeye Institute, factor into the discussion. Clarett said what he can do is tell it like it is from his personal experiences inside and outside the system.Maurice Clarett watches former OSU basketball player Kristin Watt (right) speak at a forum about paying college athletes on April 16, 2016. Credit: Lantern file photoWhile Clarett continues to lecture on prison rehabilitation reform, he said he is working toward a degree at OSU.“I’m working with an individual down there right now to finish my degree,” he said. “I’ll knock out some coursework at Columbus State this summer … I probably got two-and-a-half years left. I completed some work while I was in prison, but the ultimate goal is for me to come back and finish at Ohio State.”Clarett said he does not have a set graduation date or a selected major at the moment. He is planning to take classes that cater to his skill set, such as business, social work, education and other subject matter.Wednesday’s speech is one of many ways Clarett has impacted communities since his time in prison. He said he never thought he would turn out to become an inspirational speaker, but there come responsibilities with his platform as a recognizable athlete and someone who has witnessed the prison system in America from both sides.He’s trying to do right by those opportunities.“In prison, if you don’t get it yourself, it’s not going to happen. And the prison doesn’t do a great job of creating circumstances for you to grow. I can speak to that from experience,” he said. “Hopefully we can create a different platform or a different layer that can assist guys and getting out of prison and moving forward to allow them to not perpetuate the same things that have been going on for the past 20 to 30 years.”The event is scheduled for 5-7 p.m.
