One of San Francisco’s most historic venues played host to the Grateful Dead on numerous occasions during their formative years, and the intimate 1,150-person venue was packed with Deadheads eager to catch a glimpse of the newest group to hit the Dead scene.Dead & Company features three of the Dead’s original members, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Bill Kreutzmann, alongside keyboardist Jeff Chimenti, bassist Oteil Burbridge and guitarist John Mayer. After performing regularly for the latter half of 2015, the band was bursting at the seams and spitting fire all night. The show featured a sit in from Sammy Hagar on “Loose Lucy” and three Dead & Co debut songs, “Big Railroad Blues,” “Days Between,” and Bob Dylan’s “Queen Jane Approximately.”Full Video/Review: Dead & Company Heat Up The Historic Fillmore In San FranciscoThanks to photographer Dave Vann, we have an exclusive look inside this glorious performance.

Sociologist analyzes KKK impact on modern politics

first_imgProfessor Rory McVeigh, chair of sociology at Notre Dame, co-authored an upcoming article to be published in the American Sociological Review with professors David Cunningham from Brandeis University and Justin Farrell from Yale University.The article, titled, “Political Polarization as a Social Movement Outcome: 1960s Klan Activism and its Enduring Impact on Political Realignment in Southern Counties, 1960 to 2000,” discusses the activities of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) in its heyday, its influence in modern politics and the motivations behind actions from a near half-century ago that are still felt in the world today.“There are really two different core puzzles,” McVeigh said. “One is kind of a substantive puzzle … how has the South, which used to be solidly Democratic and supportive of white supremacy … how has it transformed into a Republican stronghold? … Historians have looked at that but not really paid attention to the role of extremist movements like the Ku Klux Klan.“It kind of fits in with a general academic question about whether or not social movements make a difference,” McVeigh said. “For many, many years, sociologists were studying how [the KKK] emerged in the first place. It’s only been in recent years that people have been turning that question around and asking, ‘do they make a difference?’”McVeigh, Cunningham and Farrell worked with nearly half a century of voting data since one of the peaks in Klan activity during the 1960s. The trio observed changes in voting habits in counties across 10 states in the South that have and haven’t experienced Klan influence, McVeigh said.“We have a measure of Republican voting in 1960 before the emergence of the Klan, and we look at measures of Republican voting through various elections after the emergence of the Klan going all the way to 2000 and we look at Klan activism as something that intervenes within that time period,” Mcveigh said. “Here we are in the 1990s after the Klan has dissolved … and we found that people who hold conservative attitudes towards integration … are more likely to vote Republican. But here’s the important part: that was only true in counties where the Klan were active.”McVeigh said the longest lasting influences of the KKK were sustained through subtler, more mundane means, rather than emphasizing disparity between races. The KKK’s actions brought to light the unwillingness of the general public to discuss and resolve race-related issues, he said.“Our personal networks are more diverse in attitudes than we think they are.” McVeigh said. “Let’s say … we don’t agree on some issue. I could drop you as a friend but more commonly we change the topic that we’re talking about — something we have in common like music or sports.“Then sometimes there’s such an issue that could be a ‘hot topic’ of discussion … and we argue in our paper the Klan was like that. They were so controversial … it became such a hot topic of discussion that you couldn’t just avoid it. In the process people started to choose side and the Klan played a role in bringing the race issue out into the open and aligning racial attitudes with party platforms. … In other words, this kind of radical action can disrupt social networks and place people in different networks that are sustained for so long through social interaction,” he said.Tags: american sociological review, chair of sociology, kkk, klu klux klan, mcveigh, rory mcveighlast_img read more

Adebayor ‘will travel’ with Togo

first_imgTogo claim Emmanuel Adebayor has changed his mind and will represent the country at the African Nations Cup.Tottenham striker Adebayor said last year that he would not go to the tournament, which runs from January 19 to February 10 in South Africa, due to a row over team security and unpaid bonuses.But the 28-year-old appears to have had a change of heart, with reports in Africa on Monday morning suggesting the striker has flown to Ghana to meet up with the Hawks for their pre-tournament training camp.“Of course we’re in the African Nations Cup with Adebayor, we will be together in South Africa,” head of the Togo Football Federation, Ameyi Gabriel, is reported to have told Radio Algeria International.“It is very important to have him there because he is our player and captain of the team.”Although Adebayor has only scored three times for Spurs this year, his absence will be a big blow to the Londoners as their only other recognized striker is Jermain Defoe. Manager Andre Villas-Boas has regularly claimed he does not need to add another striker to his squad in the January transfer window, but he has been linked with another bid for Internacional and Brazil forward Leandro Damiao in recent days.It is unknown whether Adebayor will return to London for Saturday’s home game against QPR or remain with Togo until the tournament begins.Should Togo make the final of the competition, Adebayor will miss four Tottenham matches, although he will return early if, as expected, the team fail to make it out of a tough group that contains Ivory Coast, Tunisia and Algeria.last_img read more
