first_imgYesterday was a big day in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, as Dr. Christine Blasey Ford came forward, accusing Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, of sexually assaulting her at a high school party in Maryland during the early 1980’s. Dr. Ford’s heroic testimony has come with increasing threats to her family and private life, to the point where she had to sell her home and relocate, and needs a full security detail for the safety of herself and her family.A GoFundMe page was started on September 18th for the Standford psychology professor and her family, with an original goal of $150,000 quickly surpassed by generous donations. None other than Grateful Dead bassist, Phil Lesh, appears to be the top donor, with a donation of $10,000 in hopes of assisting Dr. Ford and her family with “covering the immediate security and personal expenses.” Following yesterday’s historic hearing, the GoFundMe stopped allowing donations, with a final total of $473,622 raised for Dr. Ford and her family over the course of the nine-day period. You can see a screenshot of the donation list below:Phil has been particularly active this month politically, hosting a concert under the banner Phil Lesh & “Very Special Friends” at New York’s fabled Apollo Theater to benefit live music-oriented voter registration and activism non-profit, HeadCount. The event, billed as “Don’t Tell Me This Country Ain’t Got No Heart: A Benefit for Voter Participation,” saw Lesh team with touring outfit The Terrapin Family Band, guitarist Eric Krasno, and vocalist Nicki Bluhm for the entirety of the performance, as well as sacred steel guitar master Robert Randolph, rapper Talib Kweli, and the Harlem Gospel Choir to give the performance an appropriate shot of soul.Unpacking The Many Layers Of Signifiance In Talib Kweli’s Sit-In With Phil Lesh At The ApolloWatch video of Phil Lesh & Very Special Friends with Talib Kweli and the Harlem Gospel Choir below, and remember to get out and VOTE in November!Talib Kweli w/ Phil Lesh, Terrapin Family Band, Eric Krasno, Nicki Bluhm, Robert Randolph, & The Harlem Gospel Choir – “Get By”[Video: Live For Live Music][H/T Relix]last_img read more

first_imgDrinking alcohol and experiments usually do not go hand in hand.Tomorrow however, three participants, Brent Hodson from The Northeast News, Kimberley Molina from Moose FM and Russell Eggleston from Northern Groove, will take place in a drinking experiment.- Advertisement -From 3-6 p.m. at J.D. Fitzgerald’s Pub, the control group will be forced to consume one alcoholic beverage every 15 minutes, in order to record the affects of alcohol on an individual. After each drink, the participants will be subjected to a breathalyzer and a series of tests by an RCMP officer, measuring their blood alcohol level.The experiment, created by the local RCMP, is to showcase how alcohol effects everyone differently with regards to blood alcohol levels.The experiment stemmed from growing concerns regarding the stricter drinking and driving laws being enforced in B.C.Police want to showcase that there still is a safe level of alcohol the public can consume which depends on the individual person, not the amount of liquor.Advertisement The entire event will be broadcast live on the Moose, so tune in, get informed and have a laugh at some other peoples’ expense.last_img read more
