James Taylor Delivers Post-Super Bowl Performance On “Colbert” Alongside Former Yankee Bernie Williams [Watch]

first_imgJames Taylor was the featured musical guest on Sunday night’s episode of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. While most folks across the country were heading home either in celebration or disgust following last night’s Super Bowl, Taylor was taking the stage with his band to deliver a pair of televised performances of “Your Smiling Face” and “Shower The People”.Taylor was on the CBS show to promote his upcoming run of winter tour dates alongside Bonnie Raitt, which are scheduled to begin tomorrow, Tuesday, February 5th, with a performance at the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati. Although a performer as seasoned as Taylor shouldn’t need a pre-tour warmup, Sunday’s appearance on the popular late night show certainly gave him the opportunity to remind America of his phenomenal abilities. The performances also gave Taylor the opportunity to introduce one of the newest members of his live band, with former Yankees outfielder Bernie Williams joining in on guitar duties for the evening.Taylor’s first performance of the night was “Your Smiling Face”, an uptempo, feel-good tune from his 1977 JT album. Williams can be seen strumming away with his own close-up shot at the 0:35-second mark in the video below.James Taylor – “Your Smiling Face” [Video: The Late Show with Stephen Colbert]For his second performance of the night, Taylor replaced Williams and the horn players in his band in exchange for a small troupe of backing vocalists to help deliver a lovely rendition of his acoustic-based ballad, “Shower The People”. Taylor may be 70-years-old as he enters 2019, but that trademark voice of his hasn’t seemed to have aged a day, and still shines just as brightly as his catalogue of hits. Fans can watch Taylor’s performance of “Shower The People” from Sunday in the video below.James Taylor – “Shower The People”[Video: The Late Show with Stephen Colbert]Taylor’s winter tour alongside Raitt is scheduled to run until March 2nd. From there, Taylor will head out to Las Vegas for his scheduled 12-show spring residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace beginning on April 17th. Fans can head over to Taylor’s website for tour and ticketing info.last_img read more

Learning from student athletes

first_imgOn their first day back to school after holiday break, more than 750 students from the Jackson Mann K-8 School and Gardner Pilot Academy in Allston packed the stands at Lavietes Pavilion to watch the Harvard women’s basketball team take on the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.Some students held handmade signs rooting for the Crimson, while other signs simply said “Thank You, Harvard.”The students were on campus for Harvard’s first “education day,” which aimed to give them a firsthand look at the life of student athletes.“Creating education day around the Harvard women’s basketball game was an opportunity to introduce children from neighboring schools to hear from student athletes and visit our facilities before the competition, as well as to participate in the Harvard experience at a game,” said Sue Byrne, the University’s associate director of athletics, sales and marketing.“Events like this are important since they integrate athletics and academics and build community and pride in Harvard,” she said. “The Jackson Mann School and Gardner Pilot Academy were so receptive to our invitation, and their collaboration was tremendous. We hope to make next year’s event even bigger and better.”Josef Johnson ‘18, a member of Harvard’s wrestling team, chats with one of the younger Allston students visiting Harvard. Courtesy of Harvard Athletic CommunicationsHarvard student athletes on the wrestling, women’s track and field, and men’s tennis teams were on hand to talk to the children about the challenges and rewards of taking part in sports. They discussed the value of a healthy lifestyle and the importance of taking their studies as seriously as their training.“As students walked into Harvard athletic facilities you could hear the ‘oohhs’ and ‘aahhs’ at the impressive equipment and the positive messages that students received from undergrads about what it takes to be a student first and an athlete second, which was a very valuable learning moment for our students. It is opportunities like these that enable students to envision their future educational and athletic goals,” said Lauren Fogarty Lafferty, director of extended services at the pilot academy. “Overall, the trip was a great opportunity for students and staff to deepen their sense of community among one another and with Harvard.”“It was a very special experience. Education day reminds the players where they came from and shows the kids who they can be. It is an inspiration and motivation to everyone both on and off the court,” said AnnMarie Healy ’16, a forward on Harvard’s women’s basketball team.The student athletes demonstrated some tricks of their trade — such as wrestling moves, how to take off from starting blocks, and how to hop into the long-jump pit. During the actual basketball game, students joined in timeout T-shirt tosses, trivia questions, and of course the Wave. Teachers from both Jackson Mann and the pilot academy even tried their hands at a game of halftime knockout.The Crimson fell just shy of a victory, losing by a buzzer-beater, but the guests didn’t seem to mind, as they cheered until the last second.“What an exciting day. We came close to knocking off one of the top teams in the country, with the help of our fans from Gardner Pilot Academy and the Jackson Mann School,” said Kathy Delaney-Smith, head coach of the women’s basketball team. “We look forward to welcoming the kids back to Harvard next year.”last_img read more

James Corden & Rosie O’Donnell Show Off Their Hamilton Rapping Skills

first_img View Comments Hamilton Related Shows from $149.00center_img And you call yourself a Hamilfan? Step aside for Rosie O’Donnell and James Corden. When O’Donnell, who’s hosted the Tony Awards thrice previously, visited Corden on The Late Late Show, she had some advice for this year’s emcee: practice saying “And the Tony goes to Hamilton.” This led to her admitting she’s seen the Lin-Manuel Miranda masterpiece literally a dozen times, likening it to a religious experience, and rapping a good bit of the opening number with Corden. Color us impressed! We now have two people to add to our “King George dream casting” list. Take a look at the clip below, and someone please send poor Nikki Glaser the Hamilton cast recording pronto.

Trail Mix – Chuck Hawthorne

first_imgCH – If you want to hear every word and every note, one of the last listening rooms is the Cactus Cafe on the UT campus. That’s one hell of a storied room. If you want to kick your heels up at a honky tonk, try The Broken Spoke or Giddy Ups. Somewhere in between are The Saxon Pub and Continental Club. The Paramount Theater is the place to catch the big acts. BRO – Best place for hunting vinyl? CH – You’ll have a hell of a good time if you can catch Walt Wilkins & The Mystiqueros in town. They’re not afraid to have fun, and the songs . . . well, you’ll see. CH – Try this. Check out Mystery Monday, hosted by Christine Albert, with her mystery guest, at El Mercado. Then cruise over to Donn’s Depot for the post-show soiree with Chris Gage behind the keys. It’s tradition. There’s something about songwriters from Texas that sets them apart from their contemporaries from around the country. And be sure to listen to “Such Is Life (C’est La Vie),” alogn with tunes from Steve Goodman, The Steel Wheels, Giri & Uma Peters, and many more on this month’s Trail Mix. BRO – Local music hero? BRO – Local band our readers should know about? CH – Matt’s El Rancho. You can’t beat the Tex-Mex food. A lot of deals have gone down there, music and other wise. I’ve heard LBJ held court there back in the day. “Amarillo Wind” and “I Will Fight No More Forever” are two of the finest songs I have heard all year. BRO – Favorite local distillery? CH – Out of town guests usually want to go to the Texas Chili Parlor for a Mad Dog Margarita, a la “Dublin Blues,” the Guy Clark song. We’re forced to take them there. You know, just being good hosts. It’s a tough duty. CH – Desert Door Distillery. They make a sotol that’ll make alliteration impossible. BRO – Favorite outdoor adventure? CH – I don’t hunt vinyl much, but I’m partial to Waterloo Records. I discovered Waterloo and credit cards around the same time. That was a mighty dangerous combination. Catch an indoor performance if you can. They have some great ones. BRO – Favorite local restaurant? Chuck Hawthorne certainly can keep company with all l of them. His sophomore release, Fire Out Of Stone, dropped last week. This collection of songs is as Texas as they come, rich with dusty boot honesty and echoes of the wide open Texas plains. BRO – Best place to catch a show? BRO – One place an out-of-towner should visit? CH – The patio at The Saxon Pub. Or camping with Libby Koch at Flathead Lake in Montana with a grizzly bear named Pucker. But the Austin thing to do is float the Guadalupe or Cormal Rivers with a cooler full of your favorite beverage. BRO – Favorite place for a post-show libation? CH – Ray Bonneville has a residence in Austin. If you can catch him in town, he’s the maestro that got me started. Folks like Guy Clark. Dale Watson. Ray Wylie Hubbard. Nanci Griffith. Ryan Bingham. And so many more. Their work seems to have an extra dash of kick ass and grit. If you find yourself in the Texas state capital, Chuck Hawthorne has served up a pretty solid hit list of places to visit. You can catch Chuck live at The Grove on August 4th. Later in August he has dates lined up all around Texas. For more info on those dates, as well as how you can grab a copy of Chuck’s new record, check out his website. Austin has long been on my list of places to visit, so I recently caught up with Chuck to let him dish on his hometown, one of the most musical cities in the country.last_img read more

12 financial tips loan officers must share with members

first_imgLoan officers should strive to be more than form pushers and evolve to be viewed as members’ financial advisors. When you have a loan origination system that provides a holistic view of your members’ financial data, you are more apt to position yourself as an advisor, increasing the opportunities to provide additional member services. Here are 12 tips to give members that will help put them into a better financial position:Set Realistic Budgets. Budgeting is a great way to establish benchmarks for spending and saving. But, they aren’t going to be useful if they’re set in a vacuum. Don’t forget to include emergency savings accounts, savings plans – both short and long term – for vacations, college funds, home purchases, and retirement.Track Your Budget. Budgets help members live within their means, but they can be difficult and time consuming to track. Maintaining a record of cash flow in a home is complex and detail oriented. This is where most of your best-laid plans go off the rails. Help members by introducing them to websites, software, and mobile apps that are designed to help with budgeting, such as mint.com or other Personal Financial Management (PFM) tools. 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading »last_img read more

Yobo reveals what he will bring to Eagles’ as assistant coach

first_imgAlthough many have criticized his appointment owing to lack of certification and qualification, the former Everton player believes he has what it takes to excel in the role.“I am bringing back that motivation. As a former captain, I’m bringing inspiration. I’ve been there and I’ve done it all,” he told former Super Eagles media officer Colin Udoh in a live Instagram chat monitored early in the week.“I was a fan of the team before I became an assistant coach, so I’ve seen from a fanatical point of view how people feel when they are watching the team. We as players, while playing, don’t notice these things but after my retirement, I’ve been a pundit, I’ve given my opinion about what should be done in the team.”Yobo also hinted that his 15 years of experience as a top professional will be vital for the team.“I’m bringing in my experience. Having over 15 years of consistency in my career, I think that is a lot. The good thing is that the spirit is going to improve. The 40-year-old was appointed Eagles’ assistant coach in February following the dismissal of Imama Amapakabo by the Nigeria Football Federation.
