Fans of the Grateful Dead got an earful of new music earlier this year, when The National’s Aaron and Bryce Dessner compiled a 59-track tribute album to the beloved group. Titled Day Of The Dead, the box set featured some incredibly unique covers from contemporary artists. Among those featured in the set was a rendition of “Terrapin Station,” which remained faithful to the original with a number of artists contributing, including Daniel Rossen, Christopher Bear & The National, with Josh Kaufman, Conrad Doucette, Sō Percussion & Brooklyn Youth Chorus. The full suite is not only featured on the album, but will be released as part of an EP highlighting Day Of The Dead.The Terrapin Station (Suite) EP features the “Terrapin” as the A-Side, and the B-Side includes also Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy’s “If I Had The World To Give,” Tunde Adebimpe, Lee Ranaldo & Friends’ “Playing In The Band” and Bryce Dessner’s “Garcia Counterpoint,” an original composition. Listen to the “Terrapin” suite streaming below.The new EP comes out on August 5th and can be pre-ordered here.
A rape was reported to a University administrator March 22, according to the Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP) crime log for March 23.The alleged rape occurred on an unknown date in 2014 in a Notre Dame residence hall, according to the crime log entry.The Jeanne Clery Act, originally known as the Campus Security Act, is the federal law that details how and what universities and colleges are required to disclose in terms of crime on campus, according to the Clery Center for Security on Campus. In accordance with this regulation, students did not receive an NDSP crime alert email detailing the allegations when they were reported to the University.Both the daily crime log kept by NDSP and the crime alert emails the Notre Dame community receives are the result of regulations in the Clery Act. The Clery Act requires universities and colleges to “issue timely warnings about Clery Act crimes which pose a serious or ongoing threat to students and employees.” These crimes fall into three major categories: criminal offenses, hate crimes and arrests and referrals for disciplinary action. Because the Clery Act does not dictate a timeframe or requirement for a “timely” warning, crimes that are reported a significant amount of time after they occur may not meet the timeliness standard. NDSP judges on a case-by-case basis whether or not the reported incident necessitates an alert based on its timeliness and whether or not the offender in question poses a threat to the community at large.Information about sexual assault prevention and resources for survivors of sexual assault are available online from NDSP and from the Committee for Sexual Assault Prevention (CSAP).Tags: Clery Act, NDSP, NDSP crime log, sexual assault, Title IX
Many teams across the country celebrated the opening day of official NCAA men’s basketball practices by hosting Midnight Madness pep rallies – often consisting of little more than dunk contests and three-point shootouts.USC, however, went through a grueling practice that lasted nearly three hours.“We want to make sure that we get straight to work,” said coach Kevin O’Neill. “We have a lot of new guys.”Sophomore guard Maurice Jones, who averaged 9.9 points last season, and sophomore forward Garrett Jackson, who contributed an average of 3.2 points per game, are the only two returning players who scored a point for USC last season.Freshman guard Danilo Dragovic, as well as transfers Ari Stewart and Eric Wise, practiced officially with the team for the first time. Stewart and Wise will not be eligible to compete until the 2012-2013 season.Sophomore forward Dewayne Dedmon, who sustained a non-displaced fracture of his right hand, was limited but practiced with a large cast.Senior guard Jio Fontan, who suffered an ACL tear during the exhibition games in Brazil, and sophomore forward Curtis Washington, who has a torn labrum, did not practice. Both could be sidelined the entire season.“We are going to experiment with a lot of [rotations],” O’Neill said. “We need to figure out this team over the next month-and-a-half to two months.”The Trojans open the season at home Nov. 11 against Cal State Northridge.
