In August, Pearl Jam hit Chicago’s Wrigley Field, as the band continued their brief U.S. run of “Home” and “Away” shows, which kicked off with a pair of performances in their native Seattle, Washington. The sold-out show saw the band performing many of their classic tracks in addition to tributes to Tom Petty (“I Won’t Back Down”), David Bowie (“Rebel, Rebel”), and Chris Cornell (“Missing”). Hilariously though, what the show will likely be remembered for is the appearance of Dennis Rodman during the show’s first of two encores.After the encore-opening rendition of “Just Breathe”, the former NBA superstar and five-time NBA champion appeared on stage to give Pearl Jam’s frontman Eddie Vedder a ukelele before his song “Sleeping By Myself”. Rodman, as of late, has become well-known for his close relationship with North Korea, having visited North Korea’s capital, Pyongyang, multiple times and serving as a truly bizarre ambassador between the United States and the isolationist country led by dictator and major basketball fan Kim Jong-un.While the appearance of Dennis Rodman was no doubt surprising to many, it’s not necessarily totally out-of-left-field. Rodman has gone on the record as a major fan of the iconic rock act, having made guest cameos at several of their concerts over the years. Rodman also publicly thanked Eddie Vedder on television earlier in 2018 while he was on hand in Singapore for Donald Trump’s North Korea Summit. As he explained in an interview last year, “I went and got that album [Ten] and I would played it every day. For some reason, [“Black”] was on, I think that saved my life.”Watch pro-shot video of Pearl Jam covering David Bowie’s “Rebel, Rebel” below:Pearl Jam – “Rebel, Rebel”[Video: Pearl Jam][H/T Jambase]

But you find is that in the month of June there were two cases and in the month of July three cases. We need to be careful about the environment that we are working and what we are finding is that the disease is occurring more and more among people working in the outdoor situation, people doing farming you know that sort of operation; outdoor work, work related to construction.”He also advises persons who work outdoors to wear protective gear while working.“So basically people doing outdoor activities have to be careful; if you have a breaking in your skin you need to wear gloves. If you suspect that your environment is contaminated with rats, you suspect animals around you; anytime you suspect sick animals you should report the matter to the Veterinary Unit of the Ministry of Agriculture. These are the measures that need to be taken by our population now,” he said.The Ministry of Health reported that two people had died from the disease in June of this year.Dominica Vibes News 53 Views no discussions
The Merseyside derby kicks off a huge day of football in the Premier League as Liverpool and Everton do battle at Anfield today. It will be Sam Allardyceâ€™s third game in charge of the Toffees with his side hitting a spot of good form at just the right time, keeping clean sheets in each of their last three outings, including a 3-0 win against Apollon Limassol in the Europa League on Thursday.Allardyce has urged his side to stick to their own game plan and not let the enormity of the Merseyside derby occasion intimidate them. â€œThe whole occasion is a great test for the players,â€ Allardyce said. â€œIt is one they need to rise to and no matter how well Liverpool are playing at the moment it is a derby and anything can happen. All I can ask the players is to play their best game.â€œWe donâ€™t want to let the occasion overawe us… We know we probably wonâ€™t have as much possession as Liverpool do but we need to ensure we maximise it when we do and use it in the right manner. Then when we get a chance, we need to be very clinical. Hopefully that can give us a good performance and at the end of that a result.â€Liverpoolâ€™s only defeat in their last 20 games in all competitions at Anfield either side of last summer (W12 D7) was a 2-1 loss to Sam Allardyceâ€™s Crystal Palace on April 23 in the Premier League.Liverpool also won their midweek European clash – a 7-0 victory against Spartak Moscow in the Champions League – to extended their unbeaten run to nine games in all competitions.â€œThe challenge for all of us in the stadium is that we donâ€™t expect that we play football like we did in the last 20 minutes against Moscow,â€ Jurgen Klopp said. â€œThat was confident, that was flying, all that stuff – we have to start from the ground, from the basics again.â€œWe have to be ready for hard challenges. But, from our side for sure, it should not be only hard. Thatâ€™s all that we know about a game like this, and then we can win the game.â€Phil Jagielka is set to return to the Everton squad for todayâ€™s Merseyside derby. The defender missed the Premier League victories over West Ham and Huddersfield but is fit again, although he and Michael Keane may have to settle for spots on the bench after back-to-back clean sheets. James McCarthy and Yannick Bolasie are back in training and nearing returns.Liverpool left-back Alberto Moreno could be sidelined for up to six weeks with an ankle injury. The defender will be assessed by a second specialist over the weekend but the fear is the problem, sustained in Wednesdayâ€™s win over Spartak Moscow, could keep him out until the new year.James Milner is likely to fill the vacancy for todayâ€™s clash while captain Jordan Henderson is set to start in midfield after sitting out in midweek.Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 14 games in all competitions against Everton – just one game short of their longest-ever such run against their Merseyside rivals (15, set between March 1972 and April 1978).Everton are winless in 17 successive Premier League visits to Anfield (D8 L9), since a 1-0 win in September 1999 thanks to a Kevin Campbell strike.Indeed, Everton have won just one of their last 21 top-flight games against Liverpool (W1 D9 L11), a 2-0 victory in October 2010.Liverpool have scored four 90th-minute winning goals against Everton in the Premier League – no side has scored more against a specific opponent in the competition (also Chelsea vs Wigan, Newcastle vs Tottenham and Tottenham vs West Ham).This fixture has seen a record 21 red cards issued across the 50 Premier League meetings, with 14 for Everton and seven for Liverpool.Mohamed Salah has had a hand in 15 goals in his first 15 Premier League games for Liverpool – more than any other player for the club.
