Jamgrass legends Leftover Salmon brought their wares to San Francisco, CA last night, hitting the famed The Fillmore venue along their winter tour. The stop in San Francisco had a surprise visitor, however, as the band called upon Bill Kreutzmann to lend a hand on an appropriate Grateful Dead cover.Kreutzmann joined the fold for a great rendition of “Playing In The Band,” a hitting choice considering he was literally playing in the band. Check out a video of the performance below, courtesy of Benjy Eisen.Kreutzmann also played on “New Speedway Boogie” with Salmon, adding his drums to the celebratory performance. The show was also held on the 50th anniversary of the Human Be In, which took place in San Francisco, and the energy of that historic moment was felt by all in attendance.You can see the band’s video of “New Speedway” embedded below.[Cover photo via acidpalace // Instagram]

In total 85 visitors participated in the field demonstration to raise awareness of the innovative technology with stakeholders and local communities.The ¡VAMOS! (Viable Alternative Mine Operating System) project is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program. Featuring a total of sixteen partners from nine EU countries, ¡VAMOS! seeks to address the EU’s need for (critical) raw materials, by making possible the extraction of mineral deposits from inland water-bearing areas.To reach this aim, the partners have developed an innovative system whereby a remotely operated mining vehicle is launched from a waterborne carriage.“The ¡VAMOS! team has successfully demonstrated their ability to use the prototype mining system in very hard rock. State-of-the-art electronics and visualization has been used to control the operations. All this was done with great consciousness and care for safety, the environment and involvement of local stakeholders,” said Sander Steenbrink, General Manager Corporate Research and Development at Boskalis from the Netherlands, and Advisory Board member for the ¡VAMOS! Project.Damen Dredging Equipment, being one of the main industrial partners within the ¡VAMOS! Consortium designed and built the aforementioned Launch & Recovery Vessel, plus the Slurry System on board of the Mining Vehicle.Frank Bosman, RD&I Development Manager of Damen’s Product group Dredging is the Project Manager for this scope, said: “This project has given us the platform to develop a dual stage slurry pump, which can be used in any mining or dredging situation where a high discharge pressure is needed and only limited space is available. Its further features, such as a high efficiency and large ball passage, have proven themselves in the ¡VAMOS! field trials, to be of the same high quality of any other Damen dredge pump.”The ¡VAMOS! trials will conclude early November, after which the on-site team – consisting of SMD, Damen, Sandvik, InescTEC, Fugro, Zentrum für Telematik, Fugro and BMT Group Ltd – will demobilise from the Irish site. In the coming months the test results will be evaluated, and reporting to theEU will follow.
Wolves are close to signing Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez on a season-long loan. Press Association Incidentally, former Arsenal striker Benik Afobe is already at Wolves, who tweeted: “(Manager Kenny) Jackett has confirmed that Wolves have a verbal agreement with @Arsenal for the loan of Emiliano Martinez. Hopefully completed today.” Martinez was last season loaned to Wolves’ Championship rivals Rotherham, whose manager Steve Evans said: “(He was) great for us. “We’re going to be watching Emi on Match of the Day in six to eight months and then for a number of years as Arsenal’s No 1.” The 22-year-old Argentinian has little hope of first-team football under Arsene Wenger following the £10million arrival of Petr Cech and the fine form of David Ospina last season. Martinez’s departure would, however, also represent a risk for Wenger – Wojciech Szczesny has already been loaned to Roma and Martinez’s departure would leave Arsenal with only two senior goalkeepers.
Italian champions Juventus have backed their star forward Cristiano Ronaldo in the wake of a summon being issued for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner over an alleged rape.Kathryn Mayorga accused the player of sexual assault in her hotel room in 2009 via an interview released last Friday by Der Spiegel.Las Vegas Police Department (LVPD) have since confirmed that they are reopening the case but Juve, who signed Ronaldo from Real Madrid in the summer for £100m ($128m), have vowed to stand by their player via statements posted on social media. “Cristiano Ronaldo has shown in recent months his great professionalism and dedication, which is appreciated by everyone at Juventus,” the Turin giants said via Twitter.“The events allegedly dating back to almost 10 years ago do not change this opinion, which is shared by anyone who has come into contact with this great champion.”The statement comes in the way of a denial from the player, who said: “Rape is an abominable crime that goes against everything that I am and believe in.“Keen as I may be to clear my name, I refuse to feed the media spectacle created by people seeking to promote themselves at my expense.”Meanwhile, Ronaldo’s lawyer has previously said: “The reporting in Spiegel is blatantly illegal.”He added that he had been instructed to seek compensation for “moral damages” over “probably one of the most serious violations of personal rights in recent years”.A statement released from LVPD, reported by the BBC, said: “At the time the report was taken, the victim did not provide detectives with the location of the incident or suspect description.“As of September 2018, the case has been reopened and our detectives are following up on information being provided.”Ronaldo missed the club’s midweek 3-0 Champions League encounter against Young Boys after being dismissed in their opening match against Valencia for which he received a one-game ban, but is slated to make a return for the Serie A leaders when they face Udinese in league action today.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
