first_imgA year ago tonight, Greensky Bluegrass turned out the Brooklyn Bowl, delighting bluegrass lovers to an epic night of picking that included guest sit-ins from Eric Krasno of Soulive/Lettuce as well as The Infamous Stringdusters’ Andy Falco. Krasno first jumped in the mix at the of the first set, contributing on “Ain’t No Bread In The Bread Box,” ferociously trading licks with Greensky’s Anders Beck on an extended jam.Later on in the second stanza, Stringdusters’ guitar player Andy Falco emerged for covers of Bill Monroe’s “Working on a Building” and David Grisman’s “Eat My Dust,” exploring all kinds of interesting space within the outer limits of the songs’ structures. For a finale, Krasno returned to encore with GSBG on the Allman Brothers Band’s “Midnight Rider,” the entire crowd singing along in unison.You can watch a clip of Eric Krasno’s sit in on “Midnight Rider” below as well as listen to full show audio via Setlist: Greensky Bluegrass at Brooklyn Bowl, Brooklyn, NY – 1/29/15Set I: Just to Lie > Train Junky, The 4, In Control, Seymour, Probably Kill You, All 4, Breadbox*Set II: Bring Out Your Dead, Working on a Building^, EMD^, What’s Left of the Night, Wings for Wheels, Demons, Hit Parade of Love, Tarpology > One Slip > Tarpology > One Slip > TarpologyEncore: Midnight Rider** with Eric Krasno ^ with Andy Falcolast_img read more

Tired teens 4.5 times more likely to commit crimes as adults, study finds

first_imgShare Teenagers who self-report feeling drowsy mid-afternoon also tend to exhibit more anti-social behavior such as lying, cheating, stealing and fighting. Now, research from the University of Pennsylvania and the University of York, in the United Kingdom, shows that those same teens are 4.5 times more likely to commit violent crimes a decade and a half later.“It’s the first study to our knowledge to show that daytime sleepiness during teenage years are associated with criminal offending 14 years later,” said Adrian Raine, the Richard Perry University Professor with appointments in the departments of Criminology and Psychology in the School of Arts & Sciences and the Department of Psychiatry in Penn’s Perelman School of Medicine.He and Peter Venables, an emeritus psychology professor at the University of York, published their findings in the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry. Pinterest Share on Facebook LinkedIncenter_img Email Share on Twitter Raine had collected the data for this work 39 years earlier, as part of his Ph.D. research (studying under Venables) but had never analyzed it. Recently, he began noticing cross-sectional studies, those that analyze multiple behaviors at a single point in time, connecting sleep and behavioral problems in children. He dug out his old dissertation work to look for a link between these and illegal behavior in adulthood.“A lot of the prior research focused on sleep problems, but in our study we measured, very simply, how drowsy the child is during the day,” Raine said.To get at this information, he tested 101 15-year-old boys from three secondary schools in the north of England. At the start and end of each lab session, which always ran from 1 to 3 p.m., he asked participants to rate their degree of sleepiness on a 7-point scale, with 1 being “unusually alert” and 7 being “sleepy.” He also measured brain-wave activity and sweat-rate responses to stimuli, which indicates the level of attention a person pays to a tone being played over headphones. This represents brain-attentional function, Raine said.Next he collected data about anti-social behavior, both self-reported from the study participants, as well as from two or three teachers who had worked with each teen for at least four years.“Both are helpful. There are kids who don’t really want to talk about their anti-social behavior, and that’s where the teacher reports really come in handy,” Raine said. “Actually, the teacher and child reports correlated quite well in this study, which is not usual. Often, what the teacher says, what the parent says, what the child says — it’s usually three different stories.”Finally, Raine conducted a computerized search at the Central Criminal Records Office in London to suss out which of the original 101 had a criminal record at age 29. Excluding minor violations, focusing instead on violent crimes and property offenses and only those crimes for which participants were convicted, the researchers learned that 17 percent of participants had committed a crime by that point in adulthood.With these data in hand, Raine also incorporated the study participants’ socioeconomic status. He found a connection.“Is it the case that low social class and early social adversity results in daytime drowsiness, which results in inattention or brain dysfunction, which results 14 years later in crime? The answer’s yes,” he said. “Think of a flow diagram from A to B to C to D. Think of a chain. There is a significant link.”Put another way, he added: “Daytime drowsiness is associated with poor attention. Take poor attention as a proxy for poor brain function. If you’ve got poor brain functioning, you’re more likely to be criminal.”The researchers stress that drowsiness in and of itself doesn’t always predispose a teenage boy to becoming anti-social. And many children with sleep problems do not become lawbreakers. But the researchers did find that those with sleepiness and a greater frequency of anti-social behavior during teenage years had higher odds of a life of crime later.Knowing this could potentially help with a simple treatment plan for children with behavioral issues: Recommend they get more sleep at night.“That could make a difference not just for anti-social behavior at school with these teenage kids but more importantly, with later serious criminal behavior,” Raine said. “More sleep won’t solve crime, but it might make a bit of a dent.”last_img read more

Hazard misses penalty as Chelsea draw

first_imgSee also:Mourinho unhappy with players after drawMaribor v Chelsea player ratings Maribor 1 Chelsea 1 Eden Hazard missed a late penalty for Chelsea in Slovenia, where Nemanja Matic’s 73rd-minute equaliser rescued them from a shock Champions League defeat.The Blues were trailing to Agim Ibraimi’s fine strike when Matic poked home John Terry’s goal-bound header from Cesc Fabregas’ corner.AdChoices广告A win would have clinched Chelsea’s place in the knockout stage with two matches to spare.But, having been fouled in the box by Mitja Viler with five minutes remaining, Hazard made a complete hash of the resulting spot-kick.The Belgian attempted to outsmart Jasmin Handanovic but the keeper stood his ground and embarrassed him by easily saving his woeful attempt.Handanovic had earlier produced saves to deny Didier Drogba and Hazard, while Andre Schurrle’s blushes were spared by an offside flag after the German contrived to miss from three yards out after being set up by Willian.Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho made a double substitution at the break, sending on Diego Costa and Oscar in place of Schurrle and Willian.But five minutes later his team were behind.Filipe Luis was slow to close down Ibraimi and he took full advantage, brilliantly curling the ball into the top corner of the net from the edge of the penalty area.And it would have been 2-0 had Luka Zahovic then not inexplicably missed the target with the goal at his mercy after being found by Viler’s left-wing cross.Chelsea responded strongly, with Drogba going close and the visitors being denied a penalty after Oscar went down under a challenge from Arghus, before Matic eventually hauled them level.Had Handanovic not then brilliantly saved from Costa, Hazard not fluffed his lines or Zahovic not missed that earlier sitter, the outcome could have been very different.The result, along with Sporting Lisbon’s 4-2 victory over Schalke, leaves Chelsea – now unbeaten in 16 matches – three points clear of the German side and needing to win one of their remaining two Group G games to guarantee their progress.Chelsea (4-2-3-1): Cech; Ivanovic, Zouma, Terry, Filipe Luis (Ramires 57); Matic, Fabregas; Schurrle (Costa 45), Willian (Oscar 45), Hazard; Drogba.
