Every year moe. looks at the Summer Camp Music Festival as a chance to give their fans something special, and this year they decided to pull out all the stops when it came to debuting and busting out rare covers. Over the course of a truly epic 45 minutes, moe. covered songs from two of music’s biggest legends and one of their own classics for a mind boggling three song run.We’ve already shown you their last night bookends renditions of The Who‘s “Baba O’Riley” and Cream‘s “White Room” but we saved the biggest and wildest for last. With Kyle Hollingsworth from String Cheese Incident on hand to deliver some stellar support on keys, moe. gave an impressive reading of the Pink Floyd song “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” from the seminal Wish You Were Here album.The cheers that greeted the opening strains of “Shine On” grew all the louder as the band then segued into their own dark masterpiece “Opium,” always a crowd favorite. Finishing their ten minute plus version of “Opium,” the band showed they weren’t done with Hollingsworth or special covers from classic bands by sliding directly into a ripping version of the seminal Talking Heads tune, “Making Flippy Floppy”! Al Schnier did a credible David Byrne impression, and the rest of the band showed how a Talking Heads jam-band would have sounded.Our own Rex Thomson was on hand and made sure to set up near the soundboard to catch as much of the amazing light show from Preston Hoffman as possible. Making imaginative use of image mapping technology and dozens of moving stands Hoffman delivered one of the best visual displays ever seen at Summer Camp. Another tip of the hat goes to moe. sound engineer and all around handyman Steve Young, who set up rear channels in the concert field to deliver a full quadraphonic sound-scape to really take the psychedelic experience to the next level. Check out the 45 minutes of musical madness below!
The Tectonic Theatre Project, famous for the “Laramie Project,” will be directing a play at Saint Mary’s to be performed Nov. 9 through Nov. 12. Rather than having a single plot throughout the show, there will be multiple stories taken from interviews of students across campus. The interviews, which will tell the stories of Saint Mary’s students, will be modified into scripts to be performed by actors.At Saint Mary’s, they will be using methods similar to the “Laramie Project” by conducting interviews of students and how they see diversity at Saint Mary’s.Thespians Unplugged co-presidents Stephanie Johnson, a junior, and Makena Henell, a senior, explained that the project is “collecting stories from alumnae and students of all walks of life” and that the main objective of the production is to explore diversity on campus.“This is a very artistic show we’re covering, it’s not a show like ‘Romeo and Juliet’ where they are there throughout the play,” Henell said. “So we are going to have a lot of interviews and have an artistic take on them, so come with an open mind.” Johnson said an objective of the show is to open the eyes and minds of the numerous students on campus, especially freshman. “I want to see conversations and dialogue started outside the theater, how first years are impacted and see how the project interacts with our school,” said Johnson.Henell said it is good to accept diversity as an advantage, especially for the freshmen who are adjusting to a new environment.“I think people are a lot nicer here and I feel like it’s because you have to stay inside during winter,” Henell said. “Though I have heard a lot of stories about girls in the dining hall being nasty to the workers, or a girl who came out as lesbian and who was told to leave. Expectantly, there was an overwhelming response from others that told her “once a Belle, always a Belle.””Henell said through the stories, there is a hope to bring about a stronger bond between Saint Mary’s students, as the actors will be telling the stories of fellow Belles. “We want to know how people are represented or aren’t represented.” Henell said. “I want Saint Mary’s to really open their eyes and really understand people around them. I want us as a community to get together and not judge people on their skin color, orientation or economic status. I hope that people are more mindful to another’s situation, to their backgrounds and where they come from. The biggest thing: I want people to see the show and become more open and maybe take something from it.”Audition times will be in early September.

Submitted by The Crowe Law OfficeHolly Scott enjoys her new office at Crowe Law in downtown Yelm.Holly Scott believes that the legal profession is a service industry. “That’s something Dan Crowe and I share, an understanding that we’re helping people with problems they can’t necessarily deal with on their own,” she says. In January, Scott joined The Crowe Law Office in Yelm, bringing a wealth of experience in workforce issues and a familiarity with family law.Before law, she had a career as a human resources professional. While at a power plant that served hospitals and medical facilities in Boston, she got to know many of the workers. “They were all union crew,” she says. “I learned a lot about labor law through them, but being in HR I was also navigating employment law through the non-represented employees. I got involved in that whole process and really interested in that type of law.”After graduating from Seattle University Law School, Scott worked for the Department of Labor and Industries and later, the Employment Security Department. “Working for L & I, I was dealing with a lot of wage complaints, farm workers and child labor issues,” she says. Mostly, she focused on the legislative process, although she also worked closely with those who answered the wage complaint hotline. “Most of the calls were from people who weren’t getting paid their wages, experiencing wage theft, or people who weren’t getting their meal and rest breaks properly applied,” she says.At Crowe Law, Scott will be focused on general practice. “Whatever comes up,” she says.In addition to her regular job, Scott volunteers regularly with Thurston County Volunteer Legal Services and in King County. A lot of those cases involve family law, and the experience helps to keep her contributions in perspective.“Right now, I have a few pro bono cases that are really tough situations,” she says. “Every time I see some of these clients, I’m awed by what huge things they are doing. In some cases, relatives are taking in children of family members to make sure that they’re taken care of, because the alternatives would be tragic. I’m just helping these amazing people do what needs to be done.”Coming from Boston to Seattle to Olympia to Yelm, Scott has definitely noticed some differences. “Everybody knows each other, which is a really cool thing for me,” she says. “You go to Thurston County Bar Association functions and you know everyone in the room. You go to court, you see people that you know.”In Yelm, she’s getting to know whole families, which brings her full circle. “I’m originally a small town girl from Reno, Nevada and then went and became a city girl, and now I’m back to a small town and all the adventures that come with that.”The Crowe Law Office offers comprehensive legal services, including criminal defense, family law, estate planning, business law, real estate and civil litigation.

28 May 2010 The Moses Mabhida Stadium, Durban’s spectacular 2010 Fifa World Cup venue, has scored not only an engineering first for an African stadium with its majestic arch. It has also become the world’s first “quantum” stadium. Quantum “cryptography”, which in layman’s terms refers to anything written in secret code, is a new technique of providing ultra-high communication security by encoding data within quantum particles. A person who tries to intercept an information feed protected in this way without being noticed must first break the established laws of quantum mechanics. “This is the first public global event to use such a quantum-based encryption solution,” says Professor Francesco Petruccione of the University of KwaZulu-Natal’s Centre for Quantum Technology, which has led the project in partnership with the city of Durban. “The project will provide a high-level security system along the optical fibre communication link between the stadium and the Joint Operations Centre during the World Cup,” Petruccione said last week. “To achieve this, we use quantum mechanical methods to distribute ultra-secure encryption keys.” Information conveyed through optical fibre links is often not encrypted, and therefore vulnerable to tapping using equipment readily available via the internet, Petruccione noted. The quantum-based system will make it virtually impossible for hackers to tap into communication between the two points via telephone, e-mail and video links. KwaZulu-Natal Premier Zweli Mkhize last week congratulated Petruccione and his team, comprising mainly academics and post-graduate students, for what he called a “remarkable innovation”. University of KwaZulu-Natal deputy vice-chancellor Rob Slotow said the university was pleased that it could make a contribution to the running of the World Cup. “Especially in this, the most spectacular stadium in South Africa,” he added.

7 June 2010Pan-African mobile operator Zain has struck a deal with Cell C that will see the expansion of the Kuwait-based company’s “One Network” – a service that allows its users to go to other countries within the network and still pay local rates – to South Africa.The One Network borderless mobile phone platform enables pre-paid and post-paid Zain customers, when travelling to another One Network partner country, to be treated as local customer in terms of pricing, while retaining home country service functionalities.Now, in South Africa, Zain customers will be able to make calls, send text messages and access the internet (use data) at local rates, and receive incoming calls at a minimal charge.“We have reached a significant milestone by our presence in South Africa, the region’s superpower, which this summer will be the focal point of sporting world,” Zain Africa CEO Chris Gabriel said in a statement last week.No pre-registrationThere is no need for customers to pre-register, no roaming deposits, and no complicated dialling formats. As in any other One Network country, Zain customers in South Africa will be able to recharge their pre-paid lines with locally purchased top-up cards.“Simplicity is one of the core values of Cell C, and One Network makes roaming a lot simpler for our Zain customers,” said Cell C CEO Lars Reichelt. “We are happy to enable Zain visitors to South Africa to make use of our network at prices similar to what local customers would pay.”One NetworkSince its introduction in East Africa in September 2006 and its cross-continent expansion thereafter, One Network has been recognised by the international mobile industry for setting new standards in cross-border mobile communication.Over 40-million Zain users from 15 countries across the continent will benefit from the deal with Cell C. These include Burkina Faso, Chad, Congo Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Gabon, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Madagascar, Niger, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Have a child who might enjoy snorkeling Lake Erie shipwrecks? Maybe your kid is fascinated by space and aerodynamics? Does your youngster want to spend time honing leadership skills?The College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences at The Ohio State University (CFAES) has got a camp for all of that —and much more.Thousands of youths across the state will participate in Ohio 4-H camps that are now or will soon be in session. Ohio 4-H, the youth development program of Ohio State University Extension offers or sponsors the camps in all 88 of Ohio’s counties, said Hannah Epley, an OSU Extension 4-H camping specialist.Last year, 17,213 youth participated in 4-H youth camping programs, Epley said. That includes 2,798 teen counselors, she said. Of those campers, 12,612 youths participated in overnight camps, while 4,601 participated in day camps.“The Ohio 4-H program offers camp options for youths to assist developing their self esteem and to provide an opportunity for individuals to develop responsibility away from home and parents or guardians,” Epley said. “The camps also assist in developing leadership and other skills.”In addition to the camps offered in each county, Ohio 4-H offers several statewide specialty camps, including:4-H Space Adventure Camp: a three-day camp that introduces 5th-7th graders to the world of flight and science through building and testing flying machines, conducting computer flight simulations, learning about the principles of aerodynamics and gaining an overview of the development of the space flight program.Ohio Military Kids Camps: A multi-day camp that is designed to help Ohio’s military kids become more resilient and prepared to manage the stresses of growing up in a military family. Interacting and making friends with others who are going through the same experience helps build confidence, leadership skills and a sense of community.Sea Camp: a five-day camp held on Kelley’s Island on Lake Erie for teens ages 13-18. The camp is designed to teach kids about the science of the lake, marine-related skills and the history and recreational uses of Lake Erie.Leadership Camp: a five-day camp for teens ages 15-18 that focuses on the development of peer leadership skills designed to enable participants to have an impact in their home 4-H club, county, community or school.Special Needs Camp: a three-day camp that features adapted activities including environmental science, crafts, music therapy, aquatic skills and horseback riding.4-H Camp Tech: a three-day, two-night camp, located on the Columbus campus of Ohio State, that introduces 6th-8th-graders to a variety of activities including coding, robotics, engineering design and electricity.The camps are open to all kids statewide — you don’t have to be a member of 4-H, said Sally McClaskey, Ohio 4-H’s education and marketing program manager.McClaskey operates the Camp Tech, which is hosted at Ohio State’s Nationwide and Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center, 2201 Fred Taylor Drive, and is a part of the science, technology, engineering, and math offerings by OSU Extension’s Ohio 4-H program. The campers also get to spend the night in OSU dormitories as part of the camp, in order to give them a campus experience, she said.“In addition to meeting new people and learning new things, the camps that are held on Ohio State’s campus introduce the kids to a college experience that may make them want to attend Ohio State in the future,” McClaskey said. “Summer and 4-H camp really just go together.“It’s a nice spectrum of opportunities for kids to engage in during the summer, and it’s something that kids really look forward to.”The cost for each camp varies and there may be opportunities for scholarships depending on the camp.
