The Disco Biscuits have announced their plans for the approaching New Year. On December 28th through 31st, the jamtronica pioneers will return “home” for a four-night run at the Fillmore Philadelphia.Last year, The Disco Biscuits celebrated New Year’s Eve at New York City’s PlayStation Theater following the previous year’s move to The Tabernacle in Atlanta, Georgia.

In April, the venue even honored the band with a banner at the end of a three-night 4/20 run, celebrating the fact that they’ve played the venue the most out of any other act, with nine plays under their belt.Four-day passes are available via the run’s pre-sale, which starts today, and will also be available during the general on sale, which starts this Friday. Single day tickets will also be available starting Friday.

A tale of youthful stupidity holds the key to giving honest, genuine financial advice.by: Tim MaurerThe most important event in my life is one of which I was long ashamed.I was an 18-year-old punk with a monumental chip on my shoulder. You know, the kind of kid certain of his indestructability, sure of his immunity from the dangers of self-destructive behavior.At 2:00 a.m. on a random Wednesday morning in June 1994, after a long day and night of double-ended candle-burning, I set out for home in my Plymouth Horizon. At the time, my car was bedecked with stickers loudly displaying the names of late-60s rock bands. No shoes, no seatbelt, no problem.Not even halfway home, I was awakened by the sound of rumble strips, just in time to fully experience my car leaving the road and careening over an embankment. After rolling down the hill, the vehicle settled on its wheels and I, surprisingly, landed in the driver’s seat. But all was not well. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr

New Delhi: India vs South Africa, 1st Test: Wriddhiman Saha will return to international cricket action after 22 months as India decided to drop Rishabh Pant for the first Test match against South Africa at Visakhapatnam. India captain Virat Kohli on Tuesday confirmed that Saha will keep wickets for India ahead of Pant. 21-year-old Rishabh Pant had failed to impress in recent matches scoring just 58 runs in the two-Test series against the West Indies. He has also failed to play any big knocks in the limited-overs matches. Pant has so far played 11 Tests, scoring 754 runs at an average of 44.4.While Saha has scored 1164 runs from 32 Tests at an average of only 30.6, the 34-year-old is considered a safer choice behind the wickets. He also has shown decent form with the bat scoring two 60s against West Indies A prior to being left out of the XI for the Tests. He scored 60 against South Africa A in Mysore recently.Virat Kohli also confirmed that India are set to go into the game with two spinners in the form of Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin. Rohit Sharma is set to play as an opener.”We are in no hurry with Rohit Sharma as opener. He will be given time and space to find his rhythm and the way he wants to play at the top,” Kohli said at the pre-match press conference.The first Test starts on Wednesday at the Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam. For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.

The “sunrise side” has employees from the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary, TSA, the U.S. Coast Guard, and the Department of Agriculture just to name a few.“I’m sure they didn’t expect this. We just came through the holiday. I’m sure they thought it was just going to happen for a week or so and now here we are in week five,” Thomas said.Thomas said she was inspired to help the local workers because she too was hit with the unexpected. In addition to receiving free food boxes, furloughed workers can stop by the Salvation Army of Alpena to receive food items for their pets.For utility bills and other unforeseen issues there’s a service called 2–1–1.

With the Lakers 30th out of 30 NBA teams in 3-point percentage last season (31.7), Ingram should boost those numbers after shooting 41 percent from behind the perimeter with the Blue Devils. With the Lakers finishing 27th in total defense last season (106.9 points per allowed), Ingram’s history in defending the opposing team’s top scorer could improve those rankings, too.The Lakers also became impressed with Ingram’s respectful demeanor. They interviewed him at the pre-draft combine in Chicago in May and also dined with him the night before his pre-draft workout about two weeks ago at the Lakers’ practice facility in El Segundo.Ingram has fielded plenty of questions about his weight considering few expect his listed 6’9”, 190-pound frame to absorb the daily physical poundings in the NBA. Yet, Ingram has continuously increased weight in both fat and muscle through extensive weight-training and highly caloric diets. Those close to Ingram believe he will eventually overcome that because of his other positive attributes.The Lakers also have the 32nd pick on Thursday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. In a move that carried less drama than a bland Hollywood script, the Lakers selected a player in the NBA draft on Thursday that many expected would wear a purple and gold uniform.The Lakers drafted Duke forward Brandon Ingram with their No. 2 pick, providing an immediate replacement at the small forward spot that Kobe Bryant left vacant following a storied 20-year NBA career. The move may have lacked any element of surprise, but draft selection could still eventually lead to a blockbuster.It’s far too early, of course, to project the 18-year-old Ingram’s future after he won the ACC’s freshman of the year award during his lone season at Duke. But Ingram should complement Lakers’ promising young core to remove the stench from finishing last season with the worst record in franchise history.
