On May 12th, Head for the Hills, the Colorado newgrass quartet, will release their latest album, Potions and Poisons. The album will be the group’s fourth studio album following the 2013 release of Blue Ruin. The group, composed of Adam Kinghorn (Guitar), Joe Lessard (Violin), Matt Loewen (Bass), and Sam Parks (Mandolin), has just released a brand new music video for “Bitter Black Coffee,” a track off the upcoming Potions and Poisons.“Bitter Black Coffee,” which was written by Head for the Hills’ Adam Kinghorn, and its accompanying video is a mournful, longing ode to regretful nights with former flames and their repercussions come sunrise. The video for this latest release by Head for the Hills is shot in black and white and features shots of a man alone at a table, filmed from overhead, as time throughout the day passes; the members of Head for the Hills playing the wistful song together; and the woman who’s clearly on the man’s mind. The gritty video was directed by bassist Matt Loewen and produced by the band, making them the artistic force behind both the song and the moving video that evokes film noir in its stylings.You can check out the Live For Live Music’s video premiere of Head for the Hill’s “Bitter Black Coffee” below along with the lyrics from the song. Pre-sale for Potions and Poisons ends this Friday, May 4th, ahead of its May 12th release so make sure to order your copy now here.

With closer Will Smith unavailable due to back tightness and primary set-up man Tony Watson out due to a bruised left wrist, it was Gustave who received a shot to shut the door in his 17th game with the Giants.“Will told me ‘I’m down today’ and he told me, ‘It’s probably you, you’ll be in the game,’ ” Gustave said.After walking A.J. Pollock to open the inning, Gustave put the game on ice by getting Kiké Hernández to roll into a game-ending 5-4-3 double play.“When I was in the minor leagues, all the time I would have trouble with the first hitter,” Gustave said.Abad, a journeyman left-hander who spent the first four-plus months of the year at Triple-A, may have been the bullpen MVP on Saturday. After Coonrod hit Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner with a 98-mile per hour sinker, Abad entered and induced an inning-ending 3-6-3 double play from Cody Bellinger to end the bottom of the eighth.Beede had given up at least three runs in eight consecutive starts, all of which the Giants lost, but the right-hander showed fans why the club has been adamant about keeping him in the starting rotation throughout the second half of the season.Beede allowed seven baserunners in five innings, but never let the Dodgers score as he preserved a shutout with a fantastic pitch to the Dodgers MVP candidate, Bellinger, to end a pressure-packed bottom of the fifth.“That was hopefully a big out for him,” Bochy said. “To get that win, to get one of the best hitters out in the game with what was at stake.”After the Dodgers loaded the bases with two outs, Beede fell behind in the count 2-0 on Bellinger before painting back-to-back fastballs on the outside corner. The Los Angeles right fielder swung and fouled off the first before he sent a routine flyball to left field to end the inning.“I’m happy that I could get out of that situation facing a guy like Bellinger who’s so talented,” Beede said. “A lot of respect for him, but yeah that situation, just going right after him was the plan.”In his best performance since throwing eight shutout innings against the Mets on July 19, Beede proved he has an ability to go head-to-head and thrive against the toughest lineup in the National League. Anyone suggesting Beede’s performance was a fluke would be wrong, too, considering he threw six innings of one-run ball at Dodger Stadium to earn his first MLB victory on June 17.“Beede threw great, that’s the best his curveball has been in a long time,” Vogt said.The pitcher who followed Beede, Anderson, also enjoyed a strong outing as Anderson struck out two of the three Dodgers hitters he faced in the bottom of the sixth inning. Anderson topped out at 96.1 miles per hour with his fastball and picked up six swings and misses on 16 pitches.Anderson was a college closer at the University of Florida before transitioning into a starter role in the minor leagues, but after losing his spot in the Giants’ rotation this season, it’s possible Anderson has a more promising future as a reliever.“Anderson was special tonight,” Vogt said. “That was a glimpse of something pretty special.”Three of the first four Giants to come to the plate on Saturday reached against rookie starter Tony Gonsolin as the Dodgers rookie surrendered a leadoff bloop single to Mike Yastrzemski, a walk to Evan Longoria and a line drive single to Vogt.Pillar put the team on the board with a slow groundout to the left side of the infield that scored Yastrzemski, but that was the only run the club scored against Gonsolin.Pillar’s RBI groundout helped him become the first Giants player since 2016 (Brandon Belt, Brandon Crawford, Buster Posey) to record 80 RBI in a single season. A year after Andrew McCutchen led the club with 55 RBI, Pillar has a chance to become the first Giants batter with 90 RBI since Posey drove in 95 in 2015. The only run the Giants scored came on a routine RBI groundout from center fielder Kevin Pillar in the top of the first, but it was all they needed to hold off their rivals.Beede opened the night with five shutout innings before Giants manager Bruce Bochy began parading relievers from the visitor’s bullpen beyond the right field fence to the Dodger Stadium mound.The Giants used seven different pitchers including five rookies and held the Dodgers to just four hits in a performance that moved Bochy within five wins of 2,000 for his career.Relievers Shaun Anderson, Tyler Rogers, Andrew Suárez, Sam Coonrod and Fernando Abad combined to hold the Dodgers scoreless in the sixth, seventh and eighth innings before rookie Jandel Gustave took the mound to try and earn his first career save.“What those kids did, they just handled themselves so well,” Bochy said. LOS ANGELES — A sleeping giant? Or sleeping against the Giants?It’s difficult to explain what happened to the Dodgers’ record-setting offense on Saturday night, but when the alarm clock started ringing in the late innings for Los Angeles, no one woke up.The Dodgers average more than 5.5 runs per game and have already set a new National League standard with 253 home runs this season, but a Giants pitching staff led by starter Tyler Beede tossed a stunning shutout in a 1-0 series-clinching win.“It was one of the most fun games I’ve ever caught,” Stephen Vogt said.

(Image: Fifa)Janine ErasmusThe growing popularity of women’s football in South Africa has led to the launch of the Absa Women’s League, an initiative for the growth and development of the women’s side of the sport. The country joins England, Spain, the US, and others that hold major tournaments for women footballers.The Union of European Football Associations also has a women’s championship, and there is a Fifa Women’s World Cup, held, like the men’s tournament, on a four-yearly basis. The next such event is scheduled for 2011 in Germany.The local league, which will be run by national banking group Absa in partnership with the South African Football Association (Safa), kicked off at the Development Centre in Klipspruit, Soweto, earlier in February. Absa’s contribution to the scheme is a massive R20-million ($2-million) and will run concurrently with its sponsorship of the men’s game.Making their markInterest in women’s football has been growing steadily, especially since the international success of the national team Banyana Banyana, but sponsorship opportunities have been scarce and have hindered development. Absa’s involvement is expected to breathe new life into the game.A national women’s league was launched in 2001, with Safa and insurance company Sanlam the driving forces. Sanlam’s sponsorship ended in 2003 but mobile provider Vodacom stepped into the gap. Vodacom withdrew its backing at the start of the 2007/2008 season, leaving women’s football adrift.Despite the uncertainties, women footballers have still managed to make their mark on the continent and abroad, with a number of South Africans currently playing for top clubs overseas.In an October 2008 interview with online magazine gsport … for Girls!, former Banyana captain Desiree Ellis lamented the lack of sponsorship for women’s football in South Africa.“Players are looking for jobs,” she said, “and most players stop playing, as football doesn’t put food on the table. Sponsorship is non-existent and it is strange that corporates like 1st for Women and Foschini, who sell women’s products, have not come on board.”It is not surprising that there are high hopes for the brand new Absa Women’s League. The banking group is thrilled to be able to assist with the development of women’s soccer, said Group Executive of Marketing Mohale Ralebitso.“The Absa Women’s League promises to bring a whole new dimension and lots of excitement to the Beautiful Game,” said Ralebitso. “We sincerely hope that individual and team talent will be exposed both locally and abroad. Such partnerships can only elevate the game to greater levels and afford the players and fans a chance to revel in the beauty and wonder that each game offers.”The newly crowned Confederation of African Football (CAF) Woman Footballer of the Year, Banyana striker Noko Alice Matlou, was the guest of honour at the launch. “It is encouraging that the corporate world is serious about football at this level,” she remarked.Fierce competitionThe tournament will take place in two phases. Phase one will extend across the country throughout all 52 Safa regions. An average of 12 teams per region – 624 players in all – will ensure fierce competition and lively play. Regional winners will go forward to a provincial play-off in phase two, and two teams per province will be promoted to the provincial women’s league.Safa CEO Raymond Hack expects the new initiative to take women’s football development to another level and unleash the untapped potential of South Africa’s female footballers.“This new tournament is an important grooming ground for future stars of the nation,” said Hack. “It is from these development structures where Noko Matlou was spotted two years ago; and this week she was named the CAF African woman player of 2008. We are confident that the Absa Women’s League will unearth more diamonds.”International starsSouth Africa’s women footballers excelled at the international level in 2008. For the first time ever the national team Banyana Banyana made it to the finals of the African Women’s Championship in November 2008.The tournament, under the auspices of CAF, was played in Equatorial Guinea. The hosts were ultimately victorious but South Africa’s Matlou was the joint top scorer of the event and shared the Golden Boot prize with Genevova Anonma of the host team.Earlier in the year the national under-20 team, Basetsana, won the Women’s Championship of the Council of Southern Africa Football Associations, the only regional tournament of its kind. Basetsana’s 2008 win marked South Africa’s third consecutive victory and gave the national women’s team the right to retain the trophy permanently.Once again Matlou was the star of the show, scoring a hat-trick in the final and finishing as the most prolific scorer. The striker’s heroics did not go unrewarded, as she walked off with the top honour for a woman footballer at CAF’s glittering annual awards ceremony held in Lagos, Nigeria, earlier in February.At home, the sport has been graced with the feminine touch behind the whistle as well. In 2007 former player Deidre Mitchell became the first woman to referee a Premier Soccer League (PSL) game, when she took to the field for a Santos and Kaizer Chiefs clash. Mitchell handled the game with superb confidence, according to reports, booking no fewer than four players in the first half.“I was very happy with her performance,” said Ari Soldatos, the PSL referees appointment officer, afterwards. “She did the refereeing fraternity proud.”Mitchell has since been appointed to the Fifa panel of international referees and officiated at a summer Olympic Games match between the Japanese and New Zealand women’s teams in Beijing in August 2008. Mitchell was the only woman referee to represent the African continent, although she was accompanied by two assistant referees, Tempa Ndah Francois from Benin, and South Africa’s Nomvula Masilela.Do you have queries or comments about this article?

Freak thunderstorms a real threat to air safety According to CNN meteorologist Pedram Javaheri, conditions were clear and calm when the plane crossed over the Mediterranean Sea”The area in question in the eastern Mediterranean is currently under clear skies, but computer models suggest a storm system may impact the region as early as Friday afternoon,” he said.”Once the plane reached the Adriatic Sea, several hours into its journey, clouds were beginning to clear and it remained that way for at least another 1-2 hours before the plane’s final known location.”If there are any survivors, there’s still a window to save them.”The water temperatures in the eastern Mediterranean near Egypt are in the low 20s Celsius [mid to low 70s Fahrenheit],” Javaheri said.”Survival times in such waters range from 2-7 hours for the elderly or individuals in poor health, while they range anywhere from 2 to 40 hours for healthier individuals.”
