Edit this setlist | More Neil Young + Promise of the Real setlists[H/T – JamBase] Neil Young continued his current European tour with current backing band Promise of the Real on Thursday night with a performance at AccorHotels Arena in Paris, France. Promise of the Real, which includes Willie Nelson‘s sons Lukas and Micha Nelson, has been touring with Young since last year in support of their collaborative 2015 album The Monsanto Years, their third studio album and Young’s thirty-sixth.While Young had performed his hit song “Old Man” a handful of times on this tour during the solo portion of the performances, Thursday’s show was highlighted by the first live rendition of the song by Young with the full support of Promise of the Real. The band also tackled “Like An Inca” (from Young’s 1982 album Trans) in the encore slot, laying into the band with tight improv for just its second outing since 1982. You can watch fan-shot video of “Old Man” and “Like An Inca” from the Paris show below, courtesy of YouTube users Gerard Rallo and Jean-Paul Pelicant:“Old Man”:“Like An Inca” encore:
The Thames Tideway Tunnel is a £4.2bn (€5.9bn) London infrastructure project funded by a group including Dalmore Capital and insurers Allianz and Swiss Life.PiP investors are collaborating with a £370m equity contribution. The NIC, the arms-length government agency announced by chancellor George Osborne in October last year, can play “a vital role” in setting long-term priorities for infrastructure investment in the UK, said the PiP, but it will be rendered “obsolete and ineffectual if its recommendations consistently fail to be acted upon”.Overall, it stressed the importance of predictability of long-term returns to pension schemes and said that, for core infrastructure, this mainly had to do with the political, legal and regulatory regimes the assets operate under, as well as in relation to subsidies and any usage revenues.Having noted that infrastructure projects are lengthy ones vulnerable to short-term political risk, PiP said: “It is critical decisions on the UK’s strategic infrastructure needs be separated from short-term, partisan, political interference and that, once the country’s needs are established, there is confidence implementation decisions will be taken within a clearly defined period – not subject to open-ended prevarication”.More specifically, it said it should be mandatory for the government to put before Parliament recommendations from the NIC.“Allowing the government discretion over whether to respond to NIC studies risks introducing political expediency, undermining the perceived independence of the NIC and ultimately rendering it ineffectual,” it said.The Treasury’s consultation proposed that the government would have discretion to do so.The PiP agreed with most other questions in the consultation but opposed the proposal that the remit of the NIC should be set by a letter from the chancellor on behalf of the government.“Allowing the chancellor of the day to set the remit for the NIC risks the introduction of politically driven short termism into the supposed 10-30 year focus of the commission,” said the PiP.“It risks the remit’s being dependent on the particular views of the individuals who happen to hold the office of chancellor at any particular time.”It also disagreed with the NIC’s “working assumption … to only review those areas of infrastructure that are the responsibility of the UK government” and that it should be free to review projects in devolved regions.The responsible authorities in these regions would not, however, be obliged to accept or act on the NIC’s findings, said the PiP.The PiP launched its first investment fund in 2014 and its second in February 2015 – both are externally managed.It launched its first internally managed fund this month, a £1bn direct infrastructure fund.,WebsitesWe are not responsible for the content of external sitesLink to National Infrastructure Commission consultation Decisions on strategic infrastructure need to be free from “short-term partisan, political interference” to unlock investment from UK pension schemes, said the Pensions Infrastructure Platform (PiP) in response to a consultation on the National Infrastructure Commission (NIC) that closed yesterday.The infrastructure venture for pension schemes set out the key conditions that needed to be met to funnel investment capital from UK pension schemes into infrastructure projects in the country:A clear pipeline of future projectsProjects structured to reduce overall risk consistent with producing real returns of 2-5% and to minimise any initial periods of zero yieldInflation-linked return streams for debt and equity financingClarity over long-term regulatory and subsidy regimes It held up the Thames Tideway Tunnel (TTT) as a good example of how multi-year construction projects could be structured to appeal to pension schemes, noting that the project “delivers a yield from day one” and includes contractual risk sharing mechanisms.
The University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team will face off against two Hockey East conference teams in their regular season-opening weekend, playing against Boston College Friday and Merrimack College Saturday.This fresh Badger team has already had a few opportunities to build chemistry, as they beat British Columbia twice in exhibition games by scores of 3–0 and 7–5.Their young talent has already seemed to find their rhythm, freshmen Alex Turcotte, Cole Caufield, Owen Lindmark and Dylan Holloway all put points on the board. Head Coach Tony Granato and the Badgers hope this hot start will carry over to the regular season.Men’s Hockey: Badgers NHL draftees set to take off in freshman seasonFollowing an NHL Draft that featured four Badgers, the University of Wisconsin squad is loaded with young talent. Alex Turcotte, Read…The Golden Eagles already started their regular season in full, defeating the University of New Brunswick by a score of 4–2.Wisconsin swept Boston College at home in their two-game series last season by scores of 3–0 and 7–5. The Golden Eagles had a losing record last season, yet they flew to the Hockey East Championship as the seventh seed where they were eliminated by third-seeded Northeastern. Wisconsin and BC had disappointing outcomes to their seasons but are both hungry for a bounce-back year.Likewise, both squads are bringing in new talent, as Boston College’s group of freshmen features five draft picks from this year’s NHL Draft.Men’s hockey: Wisconsin’s overloaded 2019-20 freshmen class is its best in yearsThe University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team recently landed a surplus of talent in their 2019 freshman class. The incoming Read…Forwards Matthew Boldy (12th overall) and Alex Newhook (16th overall), defensemen Drew Helleson (47th overall) and Marshall Warren (166th overall) and goalie Spencer Knight (13th overall) all joined the Golden Eagles this season.This matchup featuring two offensive juggernauts should shape up to be an exciting and fast-paced game, which is why the Badgers will need their defense and goalkeeping to step up. Defensemen K’Andre Miller and Wisconsin captain Wyatt Kalynuk should have their hands full Friday.The Badgers will head to North Andover to play Merrimack College on Saturday, another team looking to rebound after a last-place finish in the Hockey East this past season. The Warriors have not gotten off to a great start thus far, as they were swept in a two-game series on the road against Lake Superior State.The Warriors were led by forward Chase Gresock last season. Gresock put up a team-high 24 points in 34 games as a freshman and already has two goals in two games this season.Merrimack College has improved its top nine forward group, but their issues are still prevalent on both ends of the ice, as they scored just two goals per game and allowed 3.9 goals per game, both statistics being among the worst in their conference.Furthermore, they held a measly 12% average on the power play, whereas their opponents averaged a whopping 26% average against them.These issues for Merrimack College should benefit the Badgers well, as Wisconsin’s potent and high-motor offense may feed off of their back end.Men’s hockey: Wisconsin’s season ends after gut-wrenching 4–3 OT loss to Penn StateThe University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team (14-18-5) saw their season come to an end Sunday after dropping the tie-breaking Read…Wisconsin has an excellent opportunity to begin this year of high expectations with a strong start and will seek to come home with two wins.Game time is at 6 p.m. both Friday and Saturday. Friday’s game can be viewed on NESN+ and listened to live on 1310WIBA. Saturday’s game can be listened to live on 1070 WTSO. Both games can be followed live on Twitter @BadgerMHockey.The Badgers will play at the Kohl Center for the first time next weekend, Oct. 18-19, against two-time reigning NCAA champion Minnesota Duluth.

For the Times-StandardThe Pacific halibut bite all along the North Coast has been nothing short of spectacular this week. Since last Thursday when the ocean finally calmed, limits have been the rule. “It’s as good as I’ve seen it,” said Tim Klassen of Reel Steel Sport Fishing. “There’s been quite a few caught at the Cape in shallow water while rock fishing, and the Eel River Canyon area has been good too. They seem to be all up and down the line clear to Trinidad in 250 to 300 feet of water.” …
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest More sunshine today, and no significant changes to our forecast for the coming 10 days.High pressure moves east of us today, and we should see a little more south wind flow, taking temps up a few degrees over yesterday. Clouds will start to build in by late afternoon. Scattered showers arrive early tomorrow, and we see moisture potential or the next three days – tomorrow, Friday and Saturday. For tomorrow, scattered showers stay relatively light, bringing a few hundredths to a tenth or two over about 60% of the state. The best chances for the upper end of the range will be in the northern half to third of the state. Overnight tomorrow night through Friday, our second wave works through, bringing few hundredths to .4” with 70% coverage. The best action there will be from US 30 north. Then we see our strongest, best organized wave of moisture coming for overnight Friday night through Saturday. This will bring an additional .25”-1” to 90% of the state. All action will be done by Sunday morning. Combined, that means we see three day rain potential at half to 1.5” over nearly all of the state. All action should be done by Sunday midday. However, cold air is rushing in behind the event…and it still is not out of the realm of possibility that we see some wet snow flakes overnight and Sunday morning, mostly in the northern half to third of the state. Stay tuned. The map at right shows cumulative rains for the 3 day period.A dry and sunny pattern returns for the start of next week and runs from Monday the 1st through Wednesday the 3rd. We can’t rule out some light rain on Thursday the 4th, bringing .1”-.6” and 80% coverage, and then we are seeing a second wave of moisture to lift up through on Friday the 5th with another .25”-.5” of precipitation potential.After a dry start to next weekend on the 6th, we have rain back form Sunday the 7th and Monday the 8th. Combined totals can be from .35”-1” over 100% of the state, although rains for Monday the 8th will be mostly from I-70 north. Drier weather completes the extended period for the 9th and 10th.
