Even before the days of destination events and transformational festivals, The String Cheese Incident were always looking for ways to give their fans unique concert experiences. One such opportunity came in 1998, when the band traveled South to the Akumal Performing Arts Center in Akumal, Mexico.Cheese rose to the occasion of the run, playing their hearts out under the tropical skies for the multi-night run. In addition to a great setlist on the first night, the band also had some special guests in the form of Vince Welnick (of the Grateful Dead) and Keller Williams.Fortunately, video captured from this Akumal opening night is in circulation, capturing the band’s first set with the Vince Welnick collaboration. Welnick joins Cheese for a rollicking cover of “That’s What Love Will Make You Do,” a Jerry Garcia Band classic, and the band keeps the fans entertained with great jams on songs like “Lester Had A Coconut,” “Round The Wheel” and so many more.Watch the video below, courtesy of mojowrkn on YouTube.The second set is also chock full of highlights, including a jam with Keller Williams on “All Blues” and lengthy renditions of “Impressions”, “Galactic,” “Shine” and more.

Querrey is the first American man in the semi-finals of a Grand Slam since Andy Roddick finished runner-up at Wimbledon in 2009.“It feels great. It’s a dream come true to be in the semi-final at Wimbledon, it’s very special,” Querrey added.There was no sign of the drama to come at the start of Wednesday’s match.Murray, 30, was supreme in the first set, carving out the key break for 2-0 and taking the opener on the back of just two unforced errors.The Scot was a break to the good at 4-3 in the second before Querrey unexpectedly reeled off three straight games to level the quarter-final, firing 16 winners, twice as many as the top seed.ADVERTISEMENT Duterte’s ‘soft heart’ could save ABS-CBN, says election lawyer Malacañang open to creating Taal Commission LIVE: Sinulog 2020 Grand Parade Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next World number one Murray’s challenge petered out when he began limping off his right leg, his movement severely compromised by a recent hip problem.Querrey will face either Gilles Muller of Luxembourg, who stunned Rafael Nadal in the fourth round, or former US Open champion Marin Cilic for a place in the final.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?

Guyana-Venezuela border controversyForeign Minister Carl Greenidge said on Thursday that the domestic issues facing Guyana could have a negative impact on the country’s image internationally as the border controversy matter with Venezuela continues before the International Court of Justice (ICJ).He made this comment during a symposium hosted by the Guyana Trades Union Congress (GTUC) where he called for a united front between Government and the Opposition on the Guyana-Venezuela border controversy even as the outcome of court rulings over the December 21, 2018 no-confidence resolution loomed.“I myself don’t think that it was a coincidence. The Venezuelans were notified on December 6 and 7 and they said nothing; the works started and they did nothing, but when they did move, it was immediately after this internal problem,” the Foreign Affairs Minister opined.He further said that settling the issue would address Venezuela’s recent maritime transgressions, which, among other things, were aimed at the country gaining access to the Atlantic through the Essequibo region. It was one day after the 33-32 passage of the Opposition filed motion that Venezuelan Navy operatives temporarily intercepted an ExxonMobil-contracted oil exploration vessel offshore the Stabroek Block in Guyana’s Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).The ExxonMobil vessels under contract by the company and its partners, CNOOC of China and NEX of the USA, were performing exploratory seismic work when they were intercepted about 10:30h on December 22, 2018.Greenidge posited that our internal divisions “could weaken” the country on the international stage. “They weaken us in the eyes of our enemies. They believe that when we are divided, we don’t have as much of a voice internationally,” he stressed.At the same time, the senior Cabinet member explained that the maritime issue could not be sorted out unless the land controversy was finally put to rest since a country would needed a coastline to stake a claim to maritime space. The Minister also outlined that the sections of the Stabroek Block where the vessel was intercepted was far removed from the area, where Guyana’s western neighbour claimed there were Orinoco River delta deposits.“The Orinoco delta is roughly 120 kilometres from the boundary that constitutes Guyana’s EEZ … it’s not nearby, you can’t just wish that you were a couple of miles different,” he noted.Greenidge further said that Venezuela’s 2015 decree affected the maritime boundaries of 14 Caribbean countries. He has made it clear that the marine space, including all minerals, under sea and in the air, belonged to Guyana.Despite Guyana moving to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to clear up the controversy, Bloomberg News has reported on Venezuela’ controversial plans to remap its Caribbean off shore oil in the next few months which could further add to tensions with Guyana.Officials at the state-owned Petroleos de Venezuela were tight-lipped on the matter, but, according to reports, the new survey will also include areas bordering the Caricom nations of Grenada and St Vincent and the Grenadines.Last year, the Guyana Government filed documents at the ICJ outlining the challenges created by Venezuela and outlined why it believes that the Court has a right to hear its case to settle the border controversy over the 1899 Arbitral Tribunal Award.Greenidge recently met with the US National Security Council’s Western Hemisphere Affairs Director Mauricio Claver-Carone in Brazil over the matter. Carone urged Venezuela to respect international law and the rights of its neighbours. Further, the US State Department reiterated in a statement that “Guyana has the sovereign right to explore and exploit resources in its Exclusive Economic Zone”.During Wednesday’s symposium, retired Major General Joe Singh gave a presentation outlining the historical background to the 1899 Arbitral Tribunal Award that later became a matter of contention.
