Thursday’s lineup featured post-hardcore acts like The Front Bottoms, Thrice, The Get Up Kids, and Envy on the Coast. Friday’s vibe shifted toward reggae-centered acts, with headlining sets from Sublime with Rome, Dirty Heads, and 90’s ska-punk favorites Less Than Jake.Great South Bay’s Saturday and Sunday lineups appealed most to jam fans. Umphrey’s McGee headlined Saturday evening’s bill along with Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Papadosio, JGB featuring Melvin Seals, and Andy Falco & Friends. Finally, on Sunday, the festival closed with help from American rock-and-roll and bluegrass favorites, including sets by Electric Hot Tuna, Little Feat, the Devon Allman Project featuring Duane Betts, and more.Great South Bay is the biggest and longest-tenured four-day “American Themed” music, art, and cultural event on Long Island.

Pedersen realizes he must step up

first_imgKelsey Fenton / The Badger HeraldA season ago, tight end Jacob Pedersen was the unexpected breakout player, the bonus threat to an elite quarterback in Russell Wilson and a receiving crew led by Nick Toon and Jared Abbrederis.Finishing third on the team behind Abbrederis and Toon with 356 receiving yards on 30 receptions, the then-redshirt sophomore became a favorite target for Wilson – particularly in the end zone, where he grabbed eight touchdowns. That season left Badger fans drooling at the thought of the second coming of Lance Kendricks circa 2010, when the AP second-team All-American caught 43 balls for 663 yards.But Pedersen, who head coach Bret Bielema said dropped three passes in the loss to Nebraska Saturday, is not shy about admitting he hasn’t matched his own expectations. “There’s no reason for [quarterback Joel Stave] to target us,” Pedersen said. “We don’t make the plays for him; we make him look bad. I wouldn’t throw to me either. So that’s got to be a trust level, he’s got to be able to trust me, so we’re working on it.”Through five games, the redshirt junior tight end has shown shades of his 2011 form – his best performance a four-catch, 36-yard day including his lone touchdown catch of the season against Oregon State – but is off the pace of last year’s Mackey Award semifinalist form.Pedersen and No. 2 tight end Brian Wozniak have together accounted for only 132 yards through the air this season, the former with 95 receiving yards and the latter adding just 37 more. But the man whose eight touchdown grabs tied him for  second-most in the nation last year said picking up his play is a mental battle.It’s something he has not faced before, but Pedersen refused to place the blame on anyone aside from himself.“As far as the drops, my coach took blame for stuff like ‘I’m not doing enough drills,’” he said. “I learned to catch when I was 3 years old, so it’s not on him at all. It’s just something I [need] to work on; I just got to get in more reps after practice, get on the jugs, things like that.”Though Wisconsin is best known for producing a steady supply of NFL-caliber offensive linemen and power-based running backs, tight ends have established a more recent legacy of success wearing the cardinal and white. Kendricks is now in his second season with the St. Louis Rams, and former Badgers Owen Daniels and Garrett Graham both play for the Houston Texans.Pedersen seemed the next man in line to continue that trend, but a revised playbook under new offensive coordinator Matt Canada and the increasing use of tailbacks as receivers out of the backfield have changed how tight ends are used. Though Pedersen said he is running just as many routes as last season, the new offensive coordinator’s system has given 12 different players at least one reception this year. “I don’t think it’s declined so much as [Canada is] just trying to find the best ways to get us the ball,” said Wozniak, who often lines up opposite Pedersen. “[Abbrederis] is playing great, so we want to get him the ball in the air. … I just think that it’s getting spread out more to two guys instead of just one sole guy.”But according to UW tight ends coach Eddie Faulkner, the Badgers used tight ends on 75 percent of their offensive snaps against UTEP and Utah State, evidence they still maintain an important offensive role.One of Bielema’s six new hires in the offseason, Faulkner is quick to point out Pedersen’s numbers declined in the second half of last year and such a trend could reverse in 2012. And the Menominee, Mich., native’s most important contributions this season may have come in helping other receivers get open and blocking along the edge of an offensive line that has not consistently cleared the way for running backs as in years past.As he tries to cut down on the dropped passes and mental mistakes that have given him stats barely better than his best game of 2011 – 80 yards and two touchdowns against Oregon State – Pedersen said he must continue to play to his strengths, something he got away from early this year.“My coach asked me on Sunday what I got to do, and I just said ‘be me,’” Pedersen said. “I’m trying to do be something I’m not, so I just … [need] to play and I think I’ll be fine.”Wozniak and Bielema both said the redshirt junior has looked impressive in practice and seems confident he will help the Wisconsin offense put together a complete game with consistent scoring drives, something it has searched for all year.But first, Pedersen must regain trust in himself and remember what created these expectations in the first place.“He’s just at a certain point – we [have] all the faith in the world in him – it’s just him having the faith in himself and making sure he’s keeping that confidence. And he will,” Faulkner said.“He’s a good player, he’s a resilient guy, he takes ownership of whatever it is that’s going on, and we move forward.”last_img read more

SA’s R97bn power programme

first_img19 February 2007State-owned electricity company Eskom has made “significant progress” in a R97-billion programme to revamp South Africa’s electricity infrastructure, says Public Enterprises Minister Alec Erwin.Briefing journalists in Cape Town last Monday, Erwin said spending on Eskom’s build programme amounted to about R11-billion so far, with three coal-fired power stations which were mothballed in 1990 about to come back on stream to meet the country’s rampant energy demands.The return to service of the coal-fired stations at Camden, Grootvlei and Komati – all in coal-producing Mpumalanga province – are expected to meet previously set deadlines for recommissioning.According to Erwin, the 1 600MW Camden station will once more be contributing to SA’s national grid by the end of March, the 1 200MW Grootvlei plant will be back on stream by the end of May, and the 1 000MW Komati plant is expected to be back in action by September.At the same time, four gas turbine power stations – at Atlantis outside Cape Town, and Mossel Bay on the east coast – are expected to be back in operation by May, providing further peaking capacity of around 1 050MW.In addition, Erwin confirmed that South Africa would be building a second conventional nuclear power plant in one of the three Cape provinces – Northern Cape, Eastern Cape or Western Cape.A demonstration model of a Pebble Bed Modular Reactor – with planned capacity of about 165MW – is also under construction at the site of South Africa’s only existing conventional nuclear reactor, Koeberg in Cape Town.All these interventions are expected to add thousands of megawatts over the short term to the country’s electricity grid which, with its capacity currently stretched to a limit of between 37 500MW and 40 000MW, is in “a tight supply” situation.Erwin said the government would be making other, long-term infrastructural adjustments over the next 10 to 20 years that would resolve this tight supply scenario, which he attributed to the high energy demands resulting from the country’s rapid economic growth.The South African economy is currently going through the longest sustained upswing in its history. Gross domestic product (GDP) per capita growth, which was less than one percent a year between 1994 and 2003, accelerated to 3.1% in 2003, 4.8% in 2004 and 5.1% in 2005.Eskom is the eleventh-largest electricity utility in the world and the biggest power supplier in Africa, supplying about 63% of the continent’s needs and about 95% of the electricity consumed in South Africa.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

But Mike Schultz says that the things that make up your true value proposition have to do with the true value that you are able to provide to THAT particular customer, and it takes time to get to know what those needs are. Insight selling helps you move into the client’s world and discover the things that make your company of greatest value to them. Find out how to go about the insight selling process, on this episode of In The Arena.The best way to help sales prospects deal with their fear and risk.Many salespeople believe that if they bring up the risk or fear related to a purchase, they will lose the sale. But Mike’s research shows that the people who lose the sale are the ones who do NOT bring up the risks and fears the customer faces.

Learn how to use the reality of risk to make even more sales, on this episode of In The Arena.The 4 things to get your #buyer to believe in to minimize their #risk, on this episodeClick To TweetHonesty about the risk of a purchase can result in repeat sales.When a salesperson addresses the risks of the customer’s potential purpose head on, trust is built.

Those are the customers that come back and express loyalty because they appreciate the concern the salesperson has shown for their situation. Learn how to build that kind of trust, on this episode.The trend toward dismissing the personal relationship in sales is a mistake.The personal relationships that occur during the sales process are STILL the most powerful component that salespeople need to take care of. It’s those relationships that build things like trust, repeat business, loyalty, and the other things that every sales professional wants.
