first_imgWith as deep and plentiful of a catalog as any band in history, the Grateful Dead wrote and performed more than 150 original songs during their thirty year reign as the greatest touring band on earth. From their well-known classics like “Friend Of The Devil,” “Sugar Magnolia,” and “Truckin’” to the rarely ever played tunes like “Rosemary” “Born Cross-Eyed” and “Maybe You Know,” the Dead canon is a treasure trove of sonic bliss for any listener willing to take it on.Phil Lesh & Friends Cover Beatles, Dylan & More In Vegas Opener [Gallery/Setlist]Thanks to one user on, Osty Gale, you can listen to every debut version of each of the Dead’s 150+ original tunes. Beginning with “Caution (Do Not Stop On The Tracks)” recorded from the Dead’s January 1, 1966 at the Fillmore Auditorium all the way up until the premier of the Phil Lesh written “Unbroken Chain” performed at The Spectrum in Philadelphia on March 19, 1995, this compilation has it all.

first_imgBy D. Scott NeSmith University of Georgia Volume XXVIII Number 1 Page 10 Our friends to the north may not worry over the amount of winter “chill hours” they get. They get plenty. But here in the Southeast, it’s critical in growing blueberries.What and why?Chill hours is a term for the number of hours required (below 45 degrees from Oct. 1 through Feb. 15 in Georgia) for many fruit crops to bloom “normally.” Neither the temperature nor the accumulation time are exact. They’re just guidelines.Blueberry varieties are classified by the number of chill hours they need to readily bloom. If you plant a high-chill cultivar in a low-chill environment, then spring bud break may be erratic and prolonged. This can lead to poor pollination, especially for rabbiteye blueberries.Likewise, if you grow a low-chill plant in a high-chill area, it’s very likely to bloom prematurely, which can lead to freeze damage to blooms and severe crop losses.In a study of seven rabbiteye blueberry varieties over the past five years near Alapaha, Ga., the five-year average bloom dates were: “Climax,” March 7; “Premier,” March 13; “Austin,” March 16; “Alapaha,” March 18; “Brightwell,” March 21; “Tifblue,” March 23; and “Ochlockonee,” March 27.Study resultsA few things are evident from the study.First, the varieties bloomed on different dates. So they respond differently to the same amount of chilling. This is due to some varieties having a lower chilling requirement than others.It’s critical to recognize the differences in blueberry variety bloom dates and to plant a mixture that will bloom near the same time.Overlapping bloom times are crucial in growing rabbiteye blueberries, since the species requires cross pollination to successfully set fruit.Tifblue, for example, would likely perform much better, in terms of fruit set, if planted with Brightwell than if planted with Climax. The new releases Alapaha and Austin have compatible bloom dates, so they would be good varieties to plant together.If you want three varieties, it might be useful to plant a mix of Alapaha, Brightwell and Premier to provide the most overlap in bloom time.The study shows, too, how greatly the bloom date can vary from year to year, depending on the number of chill hours.Interestingly, the test site had a near-record low number of chill hours (363) in 1999 and a near-record high number (916) in 2001. These two years should represent the extremes for bloom dates for these varieties.The bloom dates in the frigid winter of ’01 and the warm winter of ’99 were: Climax, March 1 and 16; Premier, March 3 and 28; Brightwell, March 5 and 29; Austin, March 6 and 24; Alapaha, March 8 and 23; Tifblue, March 11 and 30; and Ochlockonee, March 14 and April 4.Use these dates to help assess the risks of growing a variety in your area. Those that consistently bloom after your average last frost date would be less at risk than those that bloom earlier.If you still want to plant the risky varieties, try to use higher sites that are less prone to frost damage. Or, if possible, use frost-protection sprinklers on these varieties.Getting the informationIn Georgia, you can get up-to-date weather data, including chill hours, for more than 50 sites across the state from the Georgia Automated Environmental Monitoring Network ( can get a general idea of when your blueberries might bloom, based on the chill hours received for the year. (Again, this isn’t exact).It’s hard to do anything about the weather. But this shouldn’t keep us from being learning the effects of year-round weather on the growth of crops like blueberries.It may look like little is going on in those leafless blueberry plants during the winter, but don’t be fooled. Those plants are chilling out, getting prepared to bloom.last_img read more

first_img Premier League stars Diego Costa, Juan Mata and Santi Cazorla will not be playing at Euro 2016 this summer OFICIAL | Lista provisional de 25 jugadores para la #EURO2016 / Provisional 25-man call up for the #EURO2016— Selección Española (@SeFutbol) May 17, 2016 1center_img Diego Costa, Juan Mata and Santi Cazorla will NOT be at Euro 2016.The Premier League trio have been left out Spain’s 25-man provisional squad for the tournament by boss Vicente del Bosque.Brazil-born striker Costa has struggled to impress under Del Bosque since switching his international allegiance in 2013, scoring just one goal in ten appearances.He has also endured a difficult season for Chelsea and has netted only 12 times in the Premier League for the deposed champions.Mata has been a virtual ever-present for Manchester United this term but has also been overlooked.Arsenal’s Cazorla is left out having only recently returned from injury, while his club teammate Hector Bellerin has been named on the standby list.Former Chelsea and Liverpool striker Fernando Torres has also been unable to force his way into the squad, despite an impressive end to the season with Atletico Madrid.Torres has scored 10 goals in the last 19 games, helping Atletico to the Champions League final and third place in La Liga, but that has not been enough to earn a first call-up since the 2014 World Cup.Bayern Munich defender Javi Martinez is another notable omission from Del Bosque’s squad, while uncapped pair Lucas Vazquez and Saul Niguez, of Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid respectively, are included.Spain travel to France next month hoping to retain the crown they won in Ukraine and Poland four years ago and they begin against Czech Republic in Toulouse on June 13.Check out the full squad below!last_img read more
