first_imgLoad remaining images Aqueous set out on a huge 5-week North American tour earlier this winter starting in Indiana, leading them to the edge of the West Coast and then down south ending in New Orleans. Just a week after the West Coast tour ended, the band played their first show back home in New York at Rochester’s Anthology for a sold-out crowd on Friday. For years Aqueous has been steadily growing up the ranks, playing bigger venues and getting placed higher up on festival lineups, but they have always had an overwhelming amount of support in New York. Guitarist Mike Gantzer acknowledged the love of Rochester referring to it as their second home. So being settled in at said home on Friday, the guys of Aqueous provided attendees with what would be a night of almost four hours of face-melting goodness.Related: Aqueous Shares Full-Show, Pro-Shot Video From Stanley Hotel Performance​The night of never-ending jams started off with the “The Median” from the band’s 2014 album, Cycles. The song starts off at a slow tempo, featuring vocal work by both Gantzer and Dave Loss (Guitar/Keys/Vocals) and led into what would be the first huge break-out of the evening. This jam highlighted the fast hands and steady beat keeping by drummer Rob Houk as the band launched from 0-60. From there, the band dove into another Cycles classic, “Kitty Chaser (Explosions)”. It was right in the middle of “Kitty Chaser” when Aqueous switched it up and played the always nostalgic “Undone – Sweater Song” by Weezer, before coming back to an absolutely ripping end to “Kitty Chaser”. The rest of the first set featured numerous Aqueous hits as the band seamlessly transitioned from one to the next including a face-melting jam during “Origami”. By the time the band closed out the first set with “Warren in the Window”, the packed Rochester crowd was hooting and hollering knowing that there were still two more huge sets to come. ​The second set of the evening will go down as being a historic one for the Buffalo rockers. Aqueous is known for their improvisation that occurs when they jam on their released music, but until last night, they had never played an all-improv set. Ganzter even stated that they were just as excited to see what would happen as the crowd was, but no one was truly ready for just how well they would do. Once the band started, they never stopped, going 25 minutes over the scheduled length of the set. Whether it was Loss ripping on the keys or Evan McPhaden dropping bass bombs, something good was always taking place. The set spanned many genres showcasing the true talent of each member of the band. There were ambient jams, up-tempo funk, and some undeniably heavy rock numbers. Perhaps the most astonishing thing about their first ever improv set was the cohesiveness between each member. This young band was playing on levels that you see from bands who have been together for 20+ years.  The set closed with each member playing at the speed of light as a cascade of rainbow themed lights were laid down by the bands Lighting Director, Ryan Bress.​​The energy in the room was palpable as Aqueous left the stage to take another short intermission before hopping on for one last set. The third portion of the show was much like the first, as many blowouts perfectly segued into the next featuring one of the funkiest, low-end, synth-driven jams of “Aldehyde” one could ever hope to hear. All around the room, all one could see was smiles, hands in the air, and people wiggling all over the place. When you looked on stage, each of the Aqueous members had smiles to match. They were having just as much fun as the sold-out crowd, if not more. To close out the night, Aqueous covered the Pink Floyd hit, “Run Like Hell” right in the middle of an emotionally-driven “All In” sandwich. Despite having played for three hours already, there was no stopping Aqueous from coming out to perform an encore before closing out the night. It started with Rob Houk playing a jazz number on the drums before the guys threw it back to their second album rounding out a historical night in Rochester bringing it to a close with “Triangle”. By the end of the night, there was even more energy and applause than when the band first took the stage. Anyone who has seen Aqueous over the last few years will tell you that their growth has been an absolute treat to watch and hear. Their sound is defined, and their live shows are immaculate. From dance floor grooves to face-melting ragers, the band delivers whatever you’re into. If you haven’t seen Aqueous before, there is no time like the present. These guys are going to be around for a while.​Check out some gorgeous photos from Friday night’s show below courtesy of photographer Matt Shotwell.The band continues their 2019 winter tour with a scheduled stop in Erie, PA on Saturday.

first_img Related In 1983, Susan Pillsbury was a student at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, a long way from her Maine hometown. Luckily, when she needed a dentist, she only had to travel around the corner, to the Harvard Dental Center on Longwood, where the care provided by student dentists still comes at a price attractive to a college kid.“I was just a broke student and someone recommended the Dental School to me,” Pillsbury recently recalled, sitting in an examination chair at the center. “I’ve been coming here since.”Pillsbury, now a Brookline resident, has collected half a dozen crowns, a bridge, and an implant at the center over the years. Cost is one factor that keeps her coming back, but there are many others.“I like getting to know the students, too,” she said. “They seem to be the cream of the crop. They do a really good job, and everything gets checked by the instructors.”The Harvard Dental Center has an active base of more than 38,000 patients. It is the only arm of Harvard that provides direct patient care (students at Harvard Medical School do their clinical studies at affiliated hospitals). The faculty group practice — dental patients are divided among three practice groups — recorded more than 18,000 visits last fiscal year.The other two practice groups — made up of the School of Dental Medicine’s 240 students and collectively known as the Teaching Practices — draw more than 26,000 patient visits a year. One practice group consists of postdoctoral students, who have already received a general dentistry degree and have advanced to one of the more than 12 specialties the School offers.The other tier of dental practice is provided by students working on their first dental degree, doctor of dental medicine. The students provide care under the guidance of instructors and after going through simulations with dummies and digital models. Students spend their first year studying with peers at the Medical School. They transition to the Dental School in their second year, with patient care beginning in year three.“The clinical experience students receive [seeing patients] is the most important to their education,” said German Gallucci, faculty chair of the dental center and the Raymond J. and Elva Pomfret Nagle Associate Professor of Restorative Dentistry and Biomaterials Science. “It is in their clinical training that they take the first steps as dental medical professionals. We see them transitioning to the different stages of their clinical experience, becoming confident clinicians at the end of their education.”Working on a patient for the first time is a watershed in dentists’ careers, Gallucci said, and a moment that sticks in the memory. In his case, the patient was entirely toothless, and needed a complete denture.“It’s a very special moment in the life of any physician,” Gallucci said. “The bonding of student to patient is something wonderful to experience. They’re helping each other.” — German Gallucci, faculty chair of Harvard Dental Center,Over the course of their education, Gallucci said, students are exposed to a range of patients whose cases require different procedures, providing a wide variety of clinical experiences.The center also serves the community by providing affordable access to oral health, he said. The student teaching clinic costs less than the faculty group practice, whose rates are equivalent to those of private practices. That allows people looking for dental care at a reduced rate — including those who might otherwise forego dental care — to get the services they need.But Gallucci noted that the student-patient relationship is a two-way street, and that some patients come back because they enjoy helping students learn.“The bonding of student to patient is something wonderful to experience. They’re helping each other.”On a recent Monday at the Dental Center, a class of second-year students was focused on model teeth in a preclinical lab, while grad student Rami Albahri was working in the School’s new digital dentistry lab, designing a procedure to replace a patient’s missing tooth with a titanium implant.Albahri, who holds a doctor of dental surgery degree from New York University and is working toward a master of medical sciences in prosthodontics, said that the experience of completing a diagnosis and designing a treatment plan for a patient reminds him why he decided to become a dentist.Two floors up from the digital lab, a large, bright room is segmented into smaller cubicles. There, dozens of dental students meet with patients under the watchful eye of circulating dental residents. In a similar cubicle just off the main space, fourth-year student Tom Ferlito took a break from his examination of Pillsbury.Ferlito, who plans to start an orthodontics residency program after graduating in the spring, has met with about 60 patients during his student career. Some have come in once for a simple procedure, while others he sees regularly.“It’s cool seeing someone like Susan coming here for 35 years … knowing all the people Susan helped teach over the years as well,” he said.Winthrop Reed, a Rhode Island real estate agent, started coming to the Dental Center six years ago at the recommendation of his daughter, who works at MassArt. Reed, visiting for the final fitting of a replacement denture, said that he enjoys the center’s learning environment.“Going to the dentist isn’t supposed to be fun, but it’s a lot of fun here,” he said. “What makes it fun is the learning, the academic atmosphere, the bright young people. The professors are just outstanding. It’s just being in this environment. I really enjoy it.” Boston City Council honors School for its many public contributions Making global health a collaborative effort Dental School students take lessons to heart and into the field in Costa Rica center_img Uncertain chapter in dental student’s life Successful brain surgery gives Lindsay D’Amato yet another story to share Harvard School of Dental Medicine to fête 150 yearslast_img read more

first_imgRules would require screening July 1, 2005 Regular News A special Bar committee has recommended three rule changes to the section of Bar rules that allows law students and those waiting to take the bar exam to be interns for public agencies or nonprofit organizations.The panel was formed in response to concerns expressed by Justice Fred Lewis that interns were not being well screened under current rules. That resulted in some interns with criminal records being placed with state attorneys, and other similar problems.Board member Robert Rush, who chaired the special committee, presented its findings at the board’s June meeting.The proposed changes:• Require prospective in-state interns have made application for Bar admission and have an initial character and fitness clearance from the Florida Board of Bar Examiners.• Clarify that legal aid organizations that use interns must exclusively serve the indigent.• Add a rule section that provides that after an intern graduates from law school, any continuing internship terminates if he or she fails any part of the bar exam. Interns are already required to take the next available exam after their graduation.The recommended changes have been sent to Justice Lewis in a letter from Rush following the board’s acceptance of the committee’s recommendations. The committee’s transmittal presumes full court consideration of any changes, and further opportunity for public comment before any amendments would be adopted.center_img Rules would require screeninglast_img read more

first_imgNerea Urquiza and her fiancee Andrew McPike have a baby on the way, are newly engaged and have just purchased their first property together. Picture — Mark CallejaA FINANCIAL expert has warned that as long as Millennials aren’t prepared to give up the lifestyle they currently enjoy they probably won’t own a home.AMP Advice financial adviser Anthony Jones said if they wanted to get a foot on the rung of the property ladder something had to give and the first place they needed to start looking at was their finances.He said owning a property didn’t have to mean doing nothing else — you could have it all, to a certain extentHis tips for those who want it all — property ownership and a life — are:1. To take a good look at your property wishlist, do you really need all the high-quality fixtures and fittings in your home or should you buy something more low-key?2. Have you taken into consideration the cost of rates and utilities when looking at what you can afford?3. Are you living off your credit cards? If so, this might not be the right time to take out a mortgage.4. Do your lifestyle wants marry up with paying off a mortgage or is home ownership actually not for you? 5. Do you need to have that $40,000 wedding or $10,000 engagement ring or would you rather spend that money on a property? One couple who are pulling in the budget reigns to own their first home are Nerea Urquiza and her fiancee Andrew McPike.Ms Urquiza, who is now 32 weeks pregnant, and became engaged to Mr McPike, in November said the couple had to make some tough financial decisions to buy their apartment at Gasworks Residences in Newstead.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home1 hour agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor7 hours agoGasworks Residences in Newstead have provided a homeowner dream for Nerea Urquiza and her fiancee Andrew McPike.She said their wedding, later this year, would be quite low-key to cater for their move into their apartment in April next year.“We’ve definitely had to make sacrifices, you want everything, to enjoy life, go out for dinners, travel but something has to give sometimes,” she said.“If you choose to live like that then you have to be okay with it taking longer to save for a house deposit.” Mr Jones said it was important to plan your lifestyle not your mortgage repayments.“People really need to sit down and think about the long-term implications of their choices,” he said.“Because people don’t set themselves a pathway and some goals they tend to do something and then work out if they can afford it later.“My job has become more about lifestyle management than financial management where I need to help people sit down and think about the implications of having a wedding, stopping work to have children, buying a house etc.”Mr Jones said while the great Australian dream was to own your own home, it was becoming increasingly out of reach and decisions needed to be made.“The environment we’re in isn’t really helpful for first home buyers at the moment,” he said. “There are low interest rates and easy credit but the problem is that wages aren’t rising but the gap is rising between peoples ability to repay the debt they have to take to get into the housing market., let alone saving enough for a deposit.”last_img read more
