Other set highlights included Mule’s take on Bob Marley’s “Lively Up Yourself” as well as a jam on the Grateful Dead’s “The Other One” with the Rolling Stones’ “Gimme Shelter” lyrics segued into the Mule classic “Thorazine Shuffle” featuring some Santana “Oye Como Va” teases.Check out full audio, highlight videos, setlist and more below, all courtesy of CHeeSeHeaDPRoDuCTioNS!Banks Of The Deep EndI’m A RamSince I’ve Been Loving You / No Quarter (with Jason Bonham replacing Matt Abts)Lively Up YourselfThe Other One Jam/Thorazine ShuffleFull AudioSetlist: Gov’t Mule at The Fillmore, Miami, FL – 9/25/16Set 1:World Boss >Mother EarthMr. ManLarger Than Life >Monday Mourning MeltdownDevil Likes It SlowBanks Of The Deep EndLife Before InsanityI’m A RamSet 2:Since I’ve Been Loving You with Jason Bonham, without Matt AbtsNo Quarter with Jason Bonham, without Matt AbtsFool’s MoonLively Up YourselfFallen Down >The Other One Jam with Gimme Shelter lyricsThorazine Shuffle with Oye Como Va teaseEncore:Child Of The Earthlast_img read more

OIT releases print quota data

first_imgNotre Dame’s Office of Information Technology (OIT), in conjunction with student government, released their Fall 2014 PrintND Report that highlights some of the key data on student printing in light of the printing quota controversy presented last semester.According to the report, 90 percent of undergraduates print fewer than 1,000 pages per semester and 90 percent of graduate students print fewer than 1,500 pages without need for additional quota.Emily Danaher | The Observer Junior Shuyang Li, student government’s director of campus technology, said findings were based on data that OIT collected from the printing systems on campus and reflects the information OIT has recollected from student printing and printer usage on campus.“At the beginning of this semester, we had a meeting with OIT to review printing metrics from last semester, and OIT provided us with all the data that came into the report,” Li said.Li said student government attempted to monitor the new system throughout the past semester and has been in constant communication regarding the print quota changes with campus technology throughout the year.“At the beginning of last semester, student government and senate formed a five-student team to get involved with and monitor the new printing system,” Li said. “We had monthly meetings with OIT as well as internal meetings to discuss what was good and not so good with the new printing system and to see how much students were using the new system.”The new print quota system was implemented last semester in response to the financial deficit OIT faced with student printing, which totaled to more than $80,000. Li said OIT is still managing other changes in the new printing systems including the streamlining of the printing queues across campus, the transition towards the point system, issues with one-sided and double-sided printing and quota rollover across semesters.Li said student government’s frequent communication with OIT addressed changes to the new quota system, such as the issues of the price raise for one-sided printing. While OIT initially implemented an increase in one-sided printing as opposed to double-sided printing, student government negotiated a return to equal pricing in one sided and double sided printing, Li said.“We thought [the change in price for single-sided printing] would be bad for students and had several discussions with OIT and pushed to change it back to the same [system],” Li said.Li acknowledged that although the Print ND Report indicated lower printing quota usage, members of student senate expressed their constituents’ complaints about the the quota’s relatively lowered limit and the elimination of rollover print quota from year to year.“There were three senators on the team who went out to their dorms heard other opinions as well,” Li said. “We heard a lot of student opinions that weren’t satisfied with the new system.”Li said OIT has not indicated to student government officials that any additional changes will be made to the print quota system.“I’m trying to make sure that everything we communicate to students at this point is accurate,” Li said.Tags: campus technology, OIT, print quota, printer, Printing, Student governmentlast_img read more

Hold off on the hype train

first_imgI should be really thrilled right now. I should be ecstatic. I should be bragging to all of my friends who find themselves in a city other than Los Angeles this fall. This upcoming season of Angeleno sports, both pro and collegiate, is anticipated to be one of the most eventful in recent memory. A pair of (admittedly mediocre) professional football teams will battle for relevancy and a fanbase this fall. The Los Angeles Angels are thanking the heavens for the creation of the second wildcard spot. The UCLA Bruins will be led by the Rosen one. And in the midst of it all this fall, the reign of Lonzo-mania will commence at Staples Center. At the center of what will surely be a hectic time for Los Angeles sports are two teams near to my heart, who I fear may be riding hype trains toward derailment: The USC football squad and the Los Angeles Dodgers. Both of these teams currently bear very high championship expectations. They each certainly have compelling elements that would lead many to anticipate successful seasons. And with both teams currently riding abnormally long title droughts, this high bar should be expected from championship-hungry fanbases. It’s been 29 years since the Dodgers last hoisted the Commissioner’s Trophy. And while USC is the reigning Rose Bowl champion, it’s no secret that the national title trophy is the most coveted hardware within the confines of Heritage Hall — and the Trojans haven’t brought it home since 2004. Even that title was technically stripped after the Reggie Bush scandal. I’d love to jump on the hype train for both the Dodgers and the Trojans — really. Away from the journalistic setting, I’d love to boast to my friends about the whooping USC has in line for Alabama during next season’s College Football Playoff. However, I’m hesitant to board the train; I’m a victim of sports heartbreak, especially when it comes to my beloved teams underperforming. When USC kicker Matt Boermeester’s 46-yard field goal split the uprights this past January against Penn State, the Trojans clinched their record-25th Rose Bowl Trophy. USC is the undisputed historical champion of the Grandaddy of Them All, but it’s a 12th national championship trophy that Trojan nation has been longing for for the past 13 years. The Trojans enter the 2017 regular season with a No. 4 preseason ranking from the opening AP Top 25 Poll. Led by all-world redshirt sophomore quarterback Sam Darnold, USC is projected by many to clinch a spot in the College Football Playoff behind a Heisman-caliber signal caller. Of course, the hype train is always very real at USC, no matter the outcome of the prior season. Coming off a Rose Bowl victory, it’s apparent that many following the program are calling 2017 a national championship or bust type of campaign. As promising as the team looks, I can’t look past the last time USC had this sort of anticipation: the tumultuous 2012 season. The Trojans entered 2012 ranked No. 1 nationally, led by star quarterback Matt Barkley — they would go on to finish that season unranked after an underwhelming 7-6 regular season campaign. It was the first time since 1964 that a team opened a season No. 1, but failed to be ranked by the end of the year. Cases like the 2012 season make me hesitant to snag College Football Playoff tickets to watch my dear Trojans — well, some financial barriers may also contribute to my hesitancy. Now, about those Dodgers, the boys in blue who captivated the baseball world for an entire summer. Dave Roberts’ team is another that has a hype train I am dying to board, but cannot due to prior experiences. The Dodgers’ 43-7 run over a 50-game span this summer was the winningest 50-game stretch in Major League since 1912. Los Angeles (87-35) currently holds a monstrous 20-game lead over Colorado (68-56) in the NL West standings. Even more satisfying for Dodgers fans: Los Angeles has a 39-game lead on the San Francisco Giants (50-76). Glorious. Once again, I’d love to punch my ticket to the World Series this early. The magic at Chavez Ravine is undeniable right now, that’s indisputable. Hasn’t the 3-run bottom of the ninth walk-off become conventional for this Dodger team? Don’t you just expect them to make a dramatic comeback every single night? The magical moments narrated by Joe Davis this season have captivated — and enlarged — the Dodgers’ fanbase. Just the other night my roommate was guaranteeing me a World Series title from the Dodgers. But I fear that I’ve watched too much baseball, endured too much heartbreak, to join him in his optimistic fandom. I remember the 2013 season and the 42-8 run the Dodgers underwent during the summer of the Puig. That Dodgers team was a freight train, which included a dominant Clayton Kershaw and fresh-faced Yasiel Puig. However, that mighty train was derailed by an un-hittable Michael Wacha and the Cardinals in the NLCS.Don’t get me started about those 2008 and 2009 Dodger teams that met their demise against the Phillies in the NLCS in consecutive seasons. Those series have forever tainted my appreciation of Jonathan Broxton as a Dodgers closer. Fandom is an interesting thing, isn’t it? Your experience of the sports world starts off very subjective: following your team from your town, following your favorite player. But the more you divulge into its depths, the more you gain an objectivity: you take into account other division races, other teams, other players, the league as a whole. You slowly but surely begin to realize where your respective team stands in the food chain; you also gain a broader scope on the ultimate irrelevance the regular season. You realize there is a postseason, and that’s where the dream-making or heart-breaking ultimately takes place. How I long for the simple days. When my team was going to win the title every year. When the quarterback of my team was going to win the Heisman every year. When my team was going to end their nearly three-decade long championship drought. So it’s probably best to not corrupt my roommate’s optimism with the complexities and disappointments of devout sports fanaticism.last_img read more
