Stuff like this doesn’t really happen a whole lot,” Johnson said.In moving up, Johnson would be leaving a crease he’s had so much success in since joining the Everblades, starting off this season hot by winning goalie of the week and having an eye on a Kelly Cup run.

Like literally last year was our year and now this is our year,” Johnson said.Instead, he is leaving the keys to rookie Devin Cooley.“He is the next man up. He’s got the skills to do it, he’s got the talent, the work ethic to do it,” Johnson said.center_img Blades losing local products Roe, Solow in offseason June 16, 2021 Cooley was loaned to the Blades by the Predators and with Johnson formed without a doubt the best duo in the league, making an instant impact from the first time he touched the ice in Hertz Arena.“As a rookie you really want your start to be great and luckily I was able to have that because of the team in front of me,” Cooley said. “My first game I was able to get a win and my first week I was able to get goalie of the week.”As the torch of great goalies in Southwest Florida gets passed, Johnson knows fans won’t be disappointed.“Cools has got it, He’s got it under control and I know those guys will have his back along the way for sure,” Johnson said.Cooley is up for the challenge.“Yeah, I think we have a really great team this year and I think we have a heck of a chance doing it, so yeah I am ready for it,” Cooley said.The Everblades are back on the ice Wednesday night at home against Jacksonville.

Stop protecting your voice segment and move on,” he said.

Oysterhead Works Cream, Phish, Primus Debuts Into Second CO Show [Videos]

first_imgOysterhead returned to 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, CO Saturday for night two of the supergroup’s long-awaited reunion concerts.Night two saw Oysterhead, comprised of Trey Anastasio, Les Claypool, and Stewart Copeland, run through all 13 songs on the band’s lone album, The Grand Pecking Order, as well as debut renditions of songs by Cream, Primus, and Phish. While the setlist was predominantly made up of the same tunes as night one, the two-set performance saw the group experiment with the song order as the show opened with “Mr. Oysterhead”. After an airy jam that stretched the song near the 20-minute mark and contained teases to “Them Changes” by Band of Gypsies, the band went into “Oz is Ever Floating”, followed by “The Grand Pecking Order”, and “Shadow of a Man”. The band then pulled out its first debut of the evening with “White Room” by Cream. The classic 1968 psych-rock staple saw Claypool take lead vocals for the verses, while Anastasio took over singing the higher-register notes for the refrain to take the band into set break.Much like the previous night, the second performance saw Anastasio and Claypool don acoustic guitars for “Birthday Boy” and engage in some friendly banter. “We meet again on the wooden stools of glory,” Claypool beckoned to Anastasio. “I have so much I want to talk about right now,” which culminated in Claypool asking his burning question, “so who’s better looking, me or Dave Matthews?”The two finally got down to business as Claypool introduced the song, “We’re not supposed to say what this song’s about, but I’ll tell you four things: Vegas, a penis, some cocaine, and a pair of tits.” To which he quickly added, “and Kid Rock.”The band went electric once again for “Little Faces”, followed by “Polka Dot Rose”, and “Wield The Spade”, which saw Anastasio remain at the guitar this time, as opposed to Friday night when he took over Copeland’s position behind the kit. After that came “Army’s On Ecstasy” and “Owner of the World” to close out the second set.The encore kicked off with the band’s first-ever attempt at a Primus song, with “Those Damned Blue-Collar Tweekers” from 1991’s Sailing The Seas of Cheese. Not to be outshined, Oysterhead then launched into the high-energy Phish instrumental “First Tube”, followed by the show-closing “Pseudo Suicide” to complete the entire track listing from Pecking Order.Check out a collection of fan-shot videos from night two of Oysterhead at 1STBANK Center.Oysterhead – “Mr. Oysterhead” – 2/15/20[Video: DrummerJT7]Oysterhead – “Shadow of a Man” – 2/15/20[Video: DrummerJT7]Oysterhead – “White Room” (Cream cover) – 2/15/20[Video: DrummerJT7]Oysterhead – “Birthday Boys” – 2/15/20[Video: DrummerJT7]Oysterhead – “Little Faces” – 2/15/20[Video: Jeremiah Rogers]Oysterhead – “Polka Dot Rose” – 2/15/20[Video: Joe Blake]Oysterhead – “Army’s On Ecstasy” – 2/15/20[Video: Jeremiah Rogers]Oysterhead – “Those Damned Blue-Collar Tweekers” – 2/15/20[Video: Jeremiah Rogers]Oysterhead – “Pseudo Suicide” – 2/15/20[Video: DrummerJT7]View VideosWith the two reunion shows down, Oysterhead will part ways until the members meet back up in April for a pair of California dates.

Turning Back the Clock on Workplace Flexibility

first_imgThese days (like many of my peers here in Washington!) I am working overtime on the Department of Labor’s (DOL) proposal to change the #overtime regulations, which is now under final review.  This regulation from Washington is a classic example of the law of unintended consequences.Let me explain.While I may be putting in some extra hours asking Congress to help push back this harmful #overtime rule, as an exempt professional, I am afforded the opportunity to do my job with a high degree of autonomy, working when and where it works best for me……….and this means everything to me!As a single Mom of two elementary school age girls, the workplace flexibility I enjoy allows me to effectively juggle my two passions – my kids and my work. I can slip out for the honor roll assembly, chaperone field trips, and work from home when school closes for inclement weather.  I typically work after the girls go to bed to catch up, but am able to oversee homework, dinner, and the bedtime routine…..priceless.But under the Administration’s proposal to raise the salary threshold to be exempt from overtime pay by more than 100 percent (from $23,660 per year to $50,440 in 2016), countless employees will have to be reclassified to non-exempt status.  This is especially true in certain sectors and geographic areas with a lower cost of living.  So my exempt status may not be in jeopardy here in Washington where salaries tend to be higher, but in my home state of Nebraska, it’s a different story. So what does the loss of exempt status really mean? Well, for many employees who have worked their way up to achieve this “professional” status, reclassification to hourly will be seen as a demotion.  Most importantly, this change will mean a significant loss of workplace flexibility.  Employees’ work hours will be closely tracked.  Enter the notion of punching a time clock and rigid schedules.  Exit workplace autonomy and flexibility that the 21st century workforce has grown accustomed to.  In other words, this proposal will effectively turn back the clock on the modern workplace.Proponents of this overtime regulation believe this rule will result in more take home pay for employees as they would now earn overtime pay.  That’s just not the case, as employers with tight budgets will watch hours closely to control overtime costs. At the end of the day, most employees will not earn more money but will lose flexibility.SHRM and many other members of the Partnership to Protect Workplace Opportunity are working to ensure that policy makers understand the unintended consequences this overtime proposal will have on employees, small businesses, nonprofits, local governments, and colleges and universities.And some in Congress are listening.  Recently, leaders in the House and Senate introduced S. 2707 / H.R. 4773, the Protecting Workplace Advancement and Opportunity Act.  This reasonable legislation would not prevent the DOL from moving forward with a change to the overtime rules.  It would simply require the Department to do a better economic analysis on the impact changes to the overtime rules would have on vulnerable groups.  This is important for SHRM and our members who always maintained an increase in the salary threshold was warranted, but the current regulation was just too much, too fast.Changes to the overtime rules should work for both employers and employees.  Ensuring the DOL has access to better data can help them produce a new regulation that would do just that.  It’s a responsible approach that HR professionals can and should get behind to avoid turning back the clock on the 21st century workplace.  Please take action now in support of this legislation.last_img read more
