first_imgEarlier this week, we shared some unfortunate news from the family of Eric Lindell. The New Orleans musician is suffering some serious familial setbacks, as his newborn baby is on life support and, in the process, doctors discovered a heart condition in his wife. The one bit of fortunate news from this is the strength of the musician/NOLA community, who have rallied for fundraising efforts in support of the family.After a successful GoFundMe campaign, a number of musicians are taking this to the next level. One week from today, Friday March 25th, The Hall At MP in Brooklyn, NY will host a late-night fundraiser for Lindell. Confirmed musicians thus far include the “Piano Prince of New Orleans” Davell Crawford (keys, vocals), Gregg Allman Band guitarist Scott Sharrard (guitar, vocals), Elise Testone (vocals), Lindell collaborators Chris Fitzgerald (sax) and Arne Wendt (keys), as well as members of the Brickyard Band, Shady Street Show Band, and many special guests. There will also be raffles from photographers Marc Millman, Scott Harris, and artist Mattie James.ALL proceeds will go to the Lindell family, and tickets are now on sale via Ticketweb Cares. For those who want to give more, feel free to visit the GoFundMe campaign in progress. Lindell himself commented on how touched he is for all of the support. Read his note below:I can’t describe in words how much Sarah and I appreciate the love and support from friends and family and folks we have not even met yet. Nothing can prepare you for something like this. Nothing can be more upsetting than to see sick children …it’s heart breaking how many families are here at the children’s hospital…every one with a story.We found out our son had CDH and Duodenal Atresia in November and our doctors back home said there were only a few places in the country that deal with these high risk situations. We were informed that Colorado was the best and had the highest success rate.After our first call with them, it was clear where we needed to be and they said they wanted us in Colorado ASAP, so we left shortly after Christmas. Once we arrived, we met our amazing team of doctors and nurses twice a week…which are truly some of the kindest, smartest people we have ever met.The last couple months of the pregnancy where very hard on Sarah .. Due to the CDH and Duodenal Atresia she retained way too much fluid…so they did an Amino Reduction to relieve the pressure from her heart and lungs and to try and keep the baby longer, in hopes of further lung development.A couple weeks later our son Kay Chevalier Lindell was born on March 2nd at 3:30AM…weighing in at 5 pounds. He had his first surgery and went on Ecmo machine March 3. They noticed during the C section that Sarah was having irregular heartbeats…as soon as the baby was delivered they rushed Sarah off to an adult hospital where they monitored her heart for couple days.They finally discharged her so she could come back to children’s hospital and be with baby Kay. Shortly thereafter we had to rush Sarah to the ER where they found out that the left part of her heart was not pumping with the same pressure as the rest of her heart. They have her on heart meds and have discharged her with her own blood pressure machine.Sarah has been so strong and brave through all of this and is now in NICU with baby Kay. The connection between a mother and baby is the most incredible thing I have ever seen. When she talks to him and kisses him…it is amazing how he responds…love magic…it is true and powerful.There is nothing stronger or greater than a mother’s love. We have to love our families with all we have. Thank U to all of our friends and family for the positive thoughts and prayers…each and every one of you have restored our faith in humanity. There are truly some warm heart’d people out there. Thank U so much for thinking of us and including us in your thoughts and prayers.Eric Lindell & Familylast_img read more

first_img Rising tensions over its weapons programs prompts high alert in U.S., China A historic summit, with uncertain outcome The worry over North Korea Belfer Center expert looks at potential progress, fallout from the North, South Korea meeting center_img Related As he introduced “Hanoi Summit: The Start of Real Negotiations?” on Thursday morning, Reid Pauly quipped, “It’s a good thing we put a question mark in the title.”Pauly, a fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, may have been joking, but the interrogative hung over the panel on Thursday in the wake of the sudden end of the Trump administration’s second U.S.–North Korea summit.The Harvard Korea Working Group seminar at the Belfer Center was convened to assess the outcomes of the summit, but the four panelists found themselves instead weighing the results of the aborted meeting between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Although the summit’s sudden end is widely seen as a failure, the panelists’ take was generally upbeat.“Contrary to much of the headlines, I think this was a great success,” said Katharine Moon, Wasserman Professor of Asian Studies at Wellesley College and a nonresident senior fellow at the Brookings Institution. She said she has drawn several conclusions from the talks, all of which point to the resumption of more normal diplomacy.“Donald Trump finally encountered the fact that his self-dubbed charm offensive has its limits and now real experts need to do the work,” she said. Attempting to go it alone, she said, Trump “confronted the real North Korea, which plays hardball,” including “evidence that North Korea does not have intentions to give up or bargain away its nuclear capabilities.” In fact, the decision to pull out was a sign of that progress, in that Trump, who reportedly may have been tempted to seek a deal at any cost, was “reined in” by his senior advisers, she said.Gary Samore, co-chair of the Kennedy School’s Korean Security Study Group, was equally optimistic. “This could turn out to be a very positive learning experience for both leaders,” he said. “It wasn’t just that Trump now recognizes that personal chemistry and warmth are no substitute for preparation, Kim Jong-un has learned that he can’t just deal with Trump directly and circumvent the rest of the U.S. government.”,For historical perspective, William Tobey, co-chair of the Korean Security Study Group, brought up Ronald Reagan’s 1986 summit with the Soviet Union in Reykjavik. That summit was “widely seen as a failure,” said Tobey, who served on the national security council under three presidents, but ultimately it resulted in the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty of 1988. “This is the start of negotiations,” said Tobey. John Park, director of the Korea Project, agreed, adding, “It wasn’t a single summit, but a process.”Still, what will happen next is unclear. Panelists reported scanning the official North Korean news site for any developments — but as of Thursday morning, the celebratory announcements of the summit’s start had not yet been updated. While the U.S. is calling the summit a failure, said Samore, “We don’t know what the North Korean version is,” or how the country will spin its abrupt ending.Samore shared an optimistic note: “Trump walked away in a very gracious way, showering compliments on Kim Jong-un,” he noted. “In terms of diplomacy, it was the right way.”Any next steps may have to happen soon. “Trump has a limited amount of time,” said Moon. With political problems and the 2020 elections looming, he probably has until next fall to make any further progress, she and others agreed.Kim, however, is seen as having more leeway. “He’s already tested a thermonuclear device,” said Samore, adding that China and Russia have already reduced sanctions and that China, in fact, may secretly be providing additional subsidies.A wildcard, as several panelists also noted, is that Kim has prioritized building up North Korea’s economy. Indeed, visits to Vietnam’s economic centers by Kim and members of his entourage appear to be continuing, despite the summit’s end. This may provide an impetus to further diplomacy. But complicating the economic factor is that “we’re in the middle of a U.S.–China trade war,” said Park. “If we weren’t, the subject of secondary sanctions would be interesting.”Overall, the panel agreed that the current dual freeze is likely to last, with Kim holding off on additional testing and U.S.­–South Korea military exercises kept to a minimum. This, they said, may simply be what real diplomacy looks like. Even as the U.S. might look back at Reykjavik for a precedent, North Korea may be examining the experience of its own allies. “It took seven years from when Nixon went to China to normalize relations,” Park pointed out.“We’re headed toward a return to normalcy of doing staff work,” said Tobey.last_img read more

first_img “I don’t think he has actually done badly knowing that he is from Nigeria – where developmental football is not so strong– and going to Manchester City where he was able to hold his own among some of the biggest names in world football,” he continued. “At Leicester City, it took him almost a season to blend in because at Leicester, their style of football is much quicker than where he was coming from. “Those of us who know Iheanacho understand that he is not a fast player but a highly intelligent player, trust me, he will continue to improve and score goals if he gets regular playing opportunities.” He added: “Before English football was suspended due to Covid-19, he got some goals and you will agree with me that he has greatly improved – a far difference from the time he joined the club. “I can only hope that by next season, he gets his feet completely right and continues to deliver. “For those writing him off, it is so early because I can tell you for free that his future is extremely bright because he has not started yet.” read also:Coronavirus: Iwobi, Ndidi, Iheanacho face 20% pay cut So far this season, Iheanacho boasts eight goals across all competitions for Brendan Rodgers’ men, with three of them coming from the English top-flight. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Former Super Eagles star and Golden Eaglets Assistant coach, Nduka Ugbade, has revealed why Kelechi Iheanacho has not been playing to his full potential at the English Premier League. Kelechi Iheanacho  The Foxes were labelled to have pulled off quite a coup when winning the race for the Nigerian from Manchester City. However, the 23-year-old is yet to reach his potential at King Power Stadium. Nigerian football great, Ugbade – who worked with Iheanacho as assistant coach of the Nigeria U17 and U2 teams, believes the wrong approach is being taken with the star. “Iheanacho’s coaches must know how best to use him,” he told Goal. “He is not an outright striker but he can play behind the main striker to provide assists while scoring goals. “Myself and Manu [Garba] know him very well and we know what he is capable of doing. All he needs now is getting regular playing time to get himself back into the game.” For Ugbade, learning different roles could be demanding for any young player, nevertheless, he suggests the Super Eagle will bounce back if he gains regular playing time at East Midland.

Craig Bartz was back on the prowl early on, leading the first 12 laps. Bartz slipped just high enough the next time around to allow Lance Arneson and Marcus Yarie to slip past and into the top two spots.Yarie continued to pressure Arneson as the race ran on but Arneson was up to the challenge and scored the win.In the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod feature, Tracy Wassenberg led the final 19 laps after taking the lead from Tristin Peebles on the way to his third win of the year.
