On Tuesday night, Jack Johnson stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. The show’s host, Stephen Colbert, was so elated by the experience that he joined in on the first two songs of the musical guest’s performance before leaving Johnson to perform a third song with his band, Bahamas.“Folks, this is the best job in the world because I got what I wanted,” Colbert stated before joining the singer/songwriter on the title track from his 2008 album, Sleep Through The Static, which had never been performed on television. The two traded sat on a couple of stools surrounded by Johnson’s Band as they traded verses before impressively joining up for the chorus. From there, Colbert stuck around for a second duet on a cover of “I Love You and Buddha Too”, a 2008 Mason Jennings track to which Johnson contributed vocals. Halfway through the performance, Colbert excused himself and left Johnson and his band to finish off the song. The highlight of the evening came next, as Jack Johnson performed “Big Sur” from his 2017 album, All the Light Above It Too.You can watch all three of the performances below:Jack Johnson & Stephen Colbert – “Sleep Through The Static”Jack Johnson & Stephen Colbert – “I Love You And Buddha Too”Jack Johnson w/ Bahamas – “Big Sur”[Videos: The Late Show With Stephen Colbert]Earlier in the week, David Byrne took the stage at the iconic Ed Sullivan Theater for an incredible, beautifully choreographed Late Show performance of “Everybody’s Coming To My House” with an identically-dressed ensemble that moved throughout the theatre during the performance–often around Stephen Colbert himself, who played along with amusement. Colbert also chatted with Byrne about the theatrics of modern-day politics and spoke about the time in college when he skipped Talking Heads‘ Stop Making Sense tour to write a term paper.

Zoom Video Communications was sued by a shareholder and accused of fraud amid mounting security concerns over the popular video-conferencing app.In a complaint filed Tuesday in San Francisco federal court, the company and its top officers were accused of concealing the truth about shortcomings in the app’s software encryption, including its alleged vulnerability to hackers, as well as the unauthorized disclosure of personal information to third parties including Facebook Inc.Investor Michael Drieu, who filed the suit as a class action, claims a series of public revelations about the app’s deficiencies starting last year have dented Zoom’s stock price — though the shares are still up 67 percent this year as investors bet that the teleconferencing company would be one of the rare winners from the coronavirus pandemic.Zoom Chief Executive Officer Eric Yuan has apologized for the lapses, acknowledging in a blog post last week that the company had fallen short of expectations over privacy and security.Topics :

Mikel Arteta has admitted that the families of his Arsenal players are “concerned” by the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta set to bring Pablo Mari in Fixtures on the continent have already started to fall foul of the virus as countries battle to contain it. Five Serie A games will be played behind closed doors this weekend, while the Swiss Super League has postponed their matches. English football has yet to suffer but some clubs have instructed players not to shake hands while the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham have issued forms to visitors to their training ground in an attempt to prevent potential cases. Arteta said he and his squad will continue to follow medical advice but did concede there are worries from the families of those players who are based overseas. “(We are) not anxious, obviously we read the information, it’s all the time in the media,” he said. “Our families are concerned, we have a lot of foreign players with foreign families in different countries so it’s something that is on a daily basis. “The club and the authorities are in contact every day. We are following all the instructions from the club doctor. “So far the protocols we have been doing are enough but obviously don’t know to what stage it is going to develop. “We’ve seen in other countries the difficult decisions they have to make around it to protect the situation so we have to wait and see and be guided by them.” Sheer fixture congestion seems to be more of a pressing worry for Arteta as he prepares his side for their FA Cup fifth-round clash at Portsmouth on Monday night. Loading… After crashing out of the Europa League to Olympiacos after extra-time on Thursday night, Arteta knows the pressure is on to take the club into European competition for next season. A report claims planned summer moves for three players may have to be scrapped as a result of their early elimination from the competition. Sitting ninth in the Premier League heading into the weekend’s fixtures, the FA Cup could yet be the tournament to provide Arteta with a route to the Europa League. Setup Timeout Error: Setup took longer than 30 seconds to complete. With the FA Cup ties being moved to midweek there is a level of congestion in the coming weeks after the first-ever Premier League winter break earlier in the year. Arteta believes, with Carabao Cup fixtures also in the mix, there is too much strain being placed on the modern player. “We’re not going to please everyone with the decisions that have to be made,” the Spaniard replied when asked about fixture congestion. “What is for sure is that for players it’s an enormous amount of games. The intensity is rising every single year, the level of pressure too, and sometimes it’s too much for them. Read Also:Arteta calls on Arsenal to put Euro pain behind them “Something has to be done because you can see players are cracking and cracking every season. “You can sustain that for one season, two seasons, but after three or four seasons you end up paying the price and I think the quality at some stage will drop.

Have we over reacted to concussions in every level of sports? I am not in any way questioning the need for quick and complete care for anyone who suffers a concussion. I think the problem has become that all hits on the field of play now are considered concussions. I am not advocating going back to the old football saying “he just got his bell rung”, but is it necessary to keep a student athlete from attending school for 3 weeks after a concussion? Yes, it is, if it is truly a concussion. I understand they now are not allowed to use computers during this concussion recovery time which makes it difficult for them to keep up with their studies. I am sure that the medical field is just as perplexed as the rest of us because if they decide a bump on the head is not serious and some kind of delayed reaction occurs, the legal ramifications would get out of hand quickly. Herein lies the dilemma. Have they given the medical personnel a concrete set of guidelines for them to follow or is it left up to the individual person to decide? Again I stress, I do not want any athlete on the field if they have any form of concussion. We don’t need all of the complications that seem to have cropped up after years of not taking concussions seriously. One of the solutions might be to add helmets to more sports than football. Soccer and pole vaulting are two of the areas I think consideration for the helmet must be given. We still want kids to want to play and not be afraid that serious health problems will occur if they do get hit. Another solution might be to delay some sports until the kids are a little older and a little more coordinated. I certainly do not have all the answers.
In an article that I read in the Indy Star, IU basketball coach, Tom Crean, will have roles for his players this year–not positions. His 5 top players are Pharrell, Blackmon, Johnson, Williams, and Bryant. They will all find themselves located on the floor where they can produce the highest number of shots, and thus, produce the most points.This theory worked very well for Crean in the past. His offensive production produced 1.17 points per possession last year. This translated into 77.4 PPG which was tops in the Big Ten.To play for IU you must be very versatile. No player stays in one area of the floor. It is constant movement. You might play the post on one possession and as a shooting guard on another. Unfortunately for IU, they played very little defense and lost way too many games to satisfy their fan base. If you are an IU fan, you have hopes that Crean has figured out a dense for these versatile players.
