On Friday night, Umphrey’s McGee offered up a two-set performance at Charlotte, NC’s Charlotte SHOUT! Festival held at Romare Bearden Park.Following an opening set from G. Love & Special Sauce, Umphrey’s McGee opened up their first frame with “Remind Me”, a collaboratively written tune off of the band’s 2018 It’s Not Us release. The six-piece charged forward with tenacity as they sandwiched “Sociable Jimmy” in between an exploratory “Nemo”. Umphrey’s continued on with “Roulette” and “Triple Wide” before inviting up G. Love and Ryan Stasik‘s Doom Flamingo bandmate, Mike Quinn, for a cover of The Rolling Stones‘ “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking”. The ensemble tore up the Sticky Fingers cut for only the third time ever, bringing their electric first set to a close.Following a brief setbreak, the band returned to open their second set with “Nothing Too Fancy”, which would ultimately be left open-ended and finished as the set-closer. Moving out of “Nothing Too Fancy”, Umphrey’s McGee coasted into “Partyin’ Peeps”, followed by fan-favorites “Bridgeless”, “Attachments”, “Wappy Sprayberry”, and “Glory”. “Glory” gave way to an explosive segue back into “Nothing Too Fancy” to close out the second set. The band returned to deliver a lone encore of Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb”.Check out some fan-shot clips of Umphrey’s Charlotte SHOUT!

When you are diagnosed with any type of cancer, you fight like a champion. Paqui Kelly, two-time breast cancer survivor and co-founder and board president of the Kelly Cares Foundation, understands that fight.Kelly founded the organization with her husband, Irish head coach Brian Kelly, after her first experience with cancer.“I was sick for 18 months for the first time around. After I got better, I wanted to do something to help,” Kelly said. “I saw a lot of things when I was sick, and I was thankful that I had all the insurance that I needed, rides to chemo, people to take care of me during times that weren’t very good days.“There were people, single people, who were struggling doing the same things I did. I found out that there are a lot of non-profits that have lots of little ‘angel people,’ as I call them, those single people, because they need help just like everyone else. That was where the idea started.”Monday, the organization held “Paqui’s Pink Out Zumba,” a free Zumba class on the field at Notre Dame Stadium, Kelly said. More than 900 people attended the event and participants received free goody bags and t-shirts.“It’s a lot of fun, and you can’t go wrong with movement and music,” Kelly said. “I’m so excited to be a part of it. We share stories and [talk about] how much has changed because of the amount of fundraising, education, new drugs and early detection programs.”Kelly said this is the second year the foundation has hosted Zumba in the stadium.“Cancer doesn’t just happen in October. Our theme for Paqui’s 2015 Wellness Playbook is educate, thrive and support,” Kelly said. “Those are the things you need to do. If you have an illness, you’ll need to educate yourself about that illness. You are going to have lots of support and to let yourself accept that support. The thrive part [of the theme comes in] when the people supporting you thrive off of you becoming better. It’s all part of the healing process, in my experience.”The Paqui’s Playbook series was created after the organization felt that breast cancer support was lacking in the South Bend area, Patrizia Martellaro, the marketing and development manger for the foundation, said.“There is not a lot in the area during October. So the series was created and designed to touch everyone with a bunch of different activities,” Martellaro said. “It is meant to get people educated on breast cancer and what they can do as a survivor or someone going through it or someone who just cares about the cause.”Martellaro said that the foundation wanted to plan a fun event that everyone could get involved with during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The event was designed to bring in students from the University, as well as those from the surrounding South Bend community.“Because health is one of the pillars of our organization, and staying healthy, having a healthy lifestyle is so important to preventing any kind of disease, including cancer, we wanted to do something health-related that people could get involved in,” said Martellaro.According to Kelly, the event was simply designed to raise awareness for the cause.“For the people that have gone through it, it is something to help them celebrate their health,” she said.Throughout Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the foundation will hold numerous different events as part of the Paqui’s Playbook series, Martellaro said. In addition to the Pink Out Zumba Event, the foundation will be holding a Pedal in Pink Cycle event on campus in the Rockne Memorial on Oct. 27.“What we hope people get out of it [is] to motivate each other to go get their mammograms and have good health habits. That is the goal,” Kelly said.Tags: breast cancer awareness, cancer, Kelly Cares Foundation, zumba
David Moyes hailed January signing Juan Mata after watching him inspire Manchester United to victory at Newcastle. The 25-year-old Spaniard, a £37.1million capture from Chelsea, scored twice and set up Adnan Janujaz for his late strike as United cruised to a 4-0 Barclays Premier League win at St James’ Park. Manager Moyes said: “I think Juan Mata has played really well and I think he has made us better. He hasn’t had the goals in the earlier games, but I really thought he played fine in the games. Press Association “I don’t know where it’s going to be, I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I want to try to keep winning the games and see where we end up. “If we get into that situation, then we can make a call on it.” In the meantime, Moyes will turn his attention back to the Champions League and was hoping for good news on Wayne Rooney’s toe injury on his return to the north-west. He said: “I have not heard today from the medical team back at Carrington, but we are hoping it will be making progress. “He’s a really important player for us and we will give him every opportunity to be right with his toe.” Opposite number Pardew was in subdued mood as he reflected upon a seventh defeat in 10 league games – Newcastle have conceded 11 goals without reply in the last three – as a season which at one point promised so much continues to unravel at an alarming rate. He said: “It’s tough. I understand the fans’ frustration. They want to see exciting football at this stadium and we are just not producing it at the moment. “We need to just gather ourselves together and hopefully go to Stoke and put on a performance which is above the last three. “I thought the commitment was on the pitch, there was a lot of good commitment. We actually had some decent performances in and around that performance, but United were too good. “The last few results, particularly the last three, have been tough, tough games for us. “The opposition have been above us, there’s no doubt about that, and we have not really had any breaks in the games. “We had chances. The first goal was essential for us, I thought, and we didn’t get it.” “But recently he has started to get the goals and, more importantly, assists as well. “Over the last few seasons in the Premier League, Juan Mata is one of the best assist-makers and he has always got himself a good tally of goals. “We needed that and he is coming up with the goods now.” Moyes made wholesale changes for the trip to Tyneside with only three of the men who started against Bayern Munich in midweek – Phil Jones, Antonio Valencia and Marouane Fellaini – retained with one eye on Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final return leg. However, once Mata had fired them ahead from a 39th-minute free-kick which Magpies boss Alan Pardew felt should never have been awarded, they never looked back. Mata added a second from close range five minutes after the restart and Javier Hernandez put the result beyond doubt 15 minutes later, before substitute Januzaj wrapped up a comfortable win at the death with the help of a deft assist by the Spain international. The win lifted United into sixth place, with Tottenham not in action until Monday evening, but Moyes refused to be drawn on the prospect of a Europa League campaign. He said: “The job I would like to do is finish as high up the table as we can.
Syracuse sophomore Lysianne Proulx started her first game in net on Sunday afternoon, but her offense failed to produce and the Orange fell, 3-1, to Colgate. Although SU (3-4) outshot Colgate (2-2-2) and controlled most of the possession, the Raiders were able to capitalize on their quality chances to beat in-state opposition in Hamilton.Colgate’s defense remained stout throughout the game and limited the Orange to eight shots on goal on 17 total shots. Colgate converted three goals on five shots on net.In the 40th minute, Colgate drew a foul in the box and elected Abby Sotomayor to take the penalty kick. She drilled a shot on the ground to the bottom left corner, opposite of where Proulx guessed. The PK gave the Raiders a 1-0 lead.In the 49th minute, Colgate’s Sage DiGiulio launched a shot from 25 yards out, which floated over Proulx’s fingertips for a 2-0 advantage.Sotomayor was not content with just the penalty kick goal. In the 76th minute, she lasered a long ball off her right foot into the upper right corner to put the Raiders up 3-0.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse answered a minute later with a Kate Hostage penalty kick, which she drilled into the top right corner. Hostage’s goal was not enough for SU to mount a true comeback effort, though.Proulx registered two saves, and none of the three goals were preventable. It is unclear whether her performance earned her the full-time job, as head coach Phil Wheddon has kept his options open. The team returns to SU Soccer Stadium for the first time in September for a Thursday matchup versus Kent State.
