Green light for controversial Middle East Centre project

first_imgTHE UNIVERSITY has given the go-ahead to plans to build a new Middle East Centre at St Anthony’s College after positive feedback from local residents. The Centre, known as the Stonebridge Building, has been designed by Zaha Hadid, a Baghdad-born architect famous for her outlandish form-bending designs, and will provide new facilities, including a library and an enlarged lecture theatre. The centre’s planned redevelopment has previously been criticised as having the potential to cause social problems in the local residential area.Described as an “elongated tunnel” and resembling the upturned hull of a ship, the new structure will be situated between Victorian and Edwardian era houses on Woodstock Road in north Oxford.Dr Eugene Rogan, director of the Middle East Centre, said, “We knew that we would get a modern design as soon as we went to Zaha Hadid. Her designs sit comfortably between the two buildings. It is a 21st century structure that does not overpower or upstage the surrounding buildings.”Rogan added, “I am sure people who do not like modern architecture will find grounds for objecting to this. It is a question of taste.”On Friday, an anonymous blogger rebuked the plans on local website ‘thisisoxford.’They wrote, “So who exactly is going to stop the University doing exactly what they want to? The University can and will do anything in this City that it has a mind to.”Debbie Dance, director of Oxford Preservation Trust which was not invited to the consultation, said, “It is always good to see new and innovative designs coming forward, but whether this building is right in this place is the question to be answered. “This area of North Oxford has a recognisable character which is valued by many people, and we look forward to understanding how the architect and College feel that their proposals are to add to this in a positive way.”A University spokesperson claimed that the response from local residents had been positive.”Neighbourhood consultations were well attended and the plans were generally well received. Some of those who attended offered criticisms of the plans for the Softbridge building, but most of the comments fed back to the Middle East Centre have been favourable,” they said.Hadid’s other projects have included the Mind Zone at the Millennium Dome, the Rosenthal Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati, and the BMW Central Building in Leipzig. She is also charged with building the 2012 Olympic Aquatics centre in East London.last_img read more

Full Gallery: Load remaining images The Disco Biscuits wrapped up a strong three night stand at their home festival, Camp Bisco, yesterday. The band added one set per day, starting with one on Thursday, two on Friday, and three on Saturday. Naturally, with six full sets, the band dug deep into their catalog and pulled out some great music.With three full sets yesterday, the band got things started with a down home daytime set. As Biscuits fans made their way down to the main stage, they were treated to an opening “Pygmy Twylyte” jam that wound its way into the classic “Humuhumunukunukuapua’a,” this time played inverted. They kept things grooving in that daytime set with a bust out cover of “Viola Lee Blues,” a Cannon’s Jug Stompers song most known for its role in Grateful Dead setlists. The jam surely harkened back to the Biscuits time playing with the Dead drummers, but they kept things raging at Bisco with a “Shelby Rose -> Little Betty Boop” to close the set.Watch the full set footage below, courtesy of UphoricTV:The two following sets brought more of the Biscuits heat to their festival, bringing out familiar tunes like “Sweating Bullets,” “Aceetobee,” “Little Shimmy in a Conga Line,” “Basis For A Day” and more. They closed out the festival with a soaring version of “Story of the World” as their encore. What a show!Watch sets two and three of the final night, below.last_img read more

Umphrey’s McGee Mashes Up “Electric Avenue” & “Highway To Hell” [Listen]

first_imgWith Umphrey’s McGee’s mash up album ZONKEY due out on November 11th, the band has been sharing individual tracks from their new release. The band has been cleverly combining cover songs by different bands for many years now, though ZONKEY marks the first such effort in the studio.The newest track to premiere (via Relix) is “Electric Avenue To Hell,” a mash-up of Eddy Grant’s “Electric Avenue” and AC/DC’s “Highway To Hell,” with parts of UM’s original “The Triple Wide” as well. The track features Jennifer Hartswick on vocals, a fact that instantly elevates any studio cut.Take a listen to the newest ZONKEY track to debut, below.last_img read more

Relive The Disco Biscuits’ Hilarious Clap Back At Umphrey’s McGee With This Ginuwine Cover

first_imgBack in September, Live For Live Music talked to Joel Cummins of Umphrey’s McGee and Aron Magner of The Disco Biscuits about the two bands’ ongoing prank war with one another. The friendly prank war has been going on for a while now between the two jam giants, with past retaliations including lowering dildos from the ceiling during shows and, over the summer, Umphrey’s using a photo of a passed-out Jon “Barber” Gutwillig on their all-access credentials.EXCLUSIVE: Joel Cummins Talks Umphrey’s/Biscuits Prank War And Post-World Series Hang With The CubsEXCLUSIVE: The Disco Biscuits’ Aron Magner Talks Prank War With Umphrey’s, Spotify, And BCALast weekend, The Disco Biscuits rounded out their three-night Colorado run with a final performance at Denver’s Fillmore Auditorium. During the fiery final show of the run, the jamtronica juggernauts offered up a stand-out performance with highlights throughout—including snow machines firing off toward the tail end of second set and an extravagant show-closing encore of Edvard Greig‘s famous late 1800’s orchestral composition “In The Hall of the Mountain King” (marking the group’s first rendition of the piece since 7/10/04 [643 shows]).Disco Biscuits Cover Ginuwine, Make It Snow Indoors In Colorado Finale [Full Video]However, one particularly hilarious moment during the over-the-top show came during the second set, when the band offered up an out-of-field and ridiculous cover of Ginuwine’s “Same Ol’ G” coming out of “Crickets” . Continuing the long-running joke and prank war with Umphrey’s, Barber changed the lyrics of the song to reference the incident that landed him on Umphrey’s laminates. You can watch the video of the Biscuits’ cover of Ginuwine’s “Same Ol’ G”, plus read the new and improved lyrics to the 90’s hit tune below, as posted by bassist Marc Brownstein on Facebook. Disco Biscuits’ lyrics for “Same Ol’ G”, 11/18/2017: I used to be the main one touring,But now I choose to stay at home.Most of my friends still touring,This time the G’s full grown.And I think about my future lately,Whatever that may be.And now it’s pretty clear to me,That I can just be G.I went to the show to see Umphrey’s McGee,I went backstage and I feel asleep,Paparazzi taking pictures of me,And you know I was barely free.Them boys aint got nothing on me,I did the laminate all for free,I ain’t changed and I’ll always beThe same ol GIf I want to play a party,1000 people come along.And I wear a 1 piece jumpsuit,Cause I can just zip that on.[Photo: Rios Photos]last_img read more

​​​​​​​COVID-19: Indonesia expects WHO to assist in procuring rapid antigen test kits

first_imgIndonesia is expecting the World Health Organization (WHO) to include the Southeast Asian country among the recipients of the rapid antigen test kits so as to speed up coronavirus detection in the archipelago.Earlier on Monday, the WHO announced that some 120 million antigen test kits would be available at a cost of US$5 each for low- and middle-income countries. It said the $600 million scheme would serve to expand testing in poorer nations where lab facilities or trained health workers to carry out swab tests were lacking.”We have communicated with the WHO’s representative in Indonesia and we asked [for Indonesia] to be considered to receive the test kits from the WHO,” national COVID-19 task force spokesperson Wiku Adisasmito said on Thursday. Read also: Use antigen tests for screening but with caution: ExpertsWiku said Indonesia would immediately use the rapid antigen tests to expedite coronavirus screening and detection in the country.“Will lndonesia use rapid antigen tests? The answer is yes. We have received good quality antigen tests recommended by the WHO. We are currently reviewing and considering to use them,” said Wiku.He went on to say that the rapid antigen tests were more accurate than the rapid antibody tests. However, they may require further confirmation with a PCR test, especially if a person tests negative but appears to have COVID-19 symptoms.The antigen tests offer the chance of a faster result, even within minutes, without sophisticated lab equipment. It only uses a paper strip containing coronavirus antibodies that react when touching the virus’ spike protein. (aly)Topics :last_img read more
