Dailymotion has been inaccessible from within Tunisia since 1 September.“Whether it is responsible or not, the ATI should take a position on this measure and should not leave Tunisian Internet users with no idea of what is happening,” the press freedom organisation said.The ATI told Reporters Without Borders that it was “not aware of the filtering” that is assumed to be the cause. But TopNet, one of Tunisia’s leading Internet Service Providers, referred to “temporary filtering” that had been decided by the ATI.Technical problems were cited when Dailymotion could not be accessed for about 10 days in April.

Papadosio and EarthCry multi-instrumentalist Anthony Thogmartin has announced the second annual Seed to Stage Academy Ableton Live school, set to take place from April 2nd through April 5th in Asheville, North Carolina.One of the first events of its kind, attendees can expect a four-day immersive Ableton “wizard school” where beginner or advanced musicians can gain hands-on training on the popular digital audio workshop software with Thogmartin and Papadosio’s Sam Brouse.As Thogmartin explains, “I’ve been wanting to open up the different styles of music, and Sam is one of the best compositional artists I know. Sam is going to be teaching songwriting and composition. Him and I both are going to be writing classes for it, and this year, songcraft and live performance are going to be one of our main focuses,”After teaching Ableton Live lessons for around a decade, Thogmartin has completely tapped into the programs various capabilities, constantly solving problems by syncing different components with his band members. He recently started up a “Seed to Stage” YouTube channel where he frequently posts educational videos about Ableton Live for at-home musicians.“Not everyone can watch a video and learn that way. The Academy is very hands-on, and there’s two different classes you can take at once. We have advanced classes and basic ones happening simultaneously. The first three days, we have beginner and advanced two-hour classes in the morning. In the evening, we have a three-hour period called ‘Group Shred Time’ where we have tables set up and people bring their gear and can get one-on-one time with us for specific projects they are working on,” says Thogmartin.This immersive event allows students to tailor their learning experience to gain unique hands-on training with Ableton Live software, receive insider industry knowledge, and master the mindset of a successful career in music in the heart of West Asheville. Students will be able to significantly expand their knowledge on the software and kickstart their career at Ambrose West, which is equipped with a state-of-the-art PA system, sound absorption panels, and multiple breakout rooms. On the fourth day, students can choose to play a 15-minute set to open up for EarthCry’s CD release party at Asheville Music Hall on Friday, April 5th.As Anthony Thogmartin notes, “I would encourage people to want to perform on the fourth day. It gives everyone a chance to perform in front of a crowd, get some photos taken, and hopefully get some social content for their career. This is an all-inclusive, one-stop shop to get your music career started. Music can be anything. If people knew what was possible with the tools that we have and the freedom of being able to record yourself at any time, the possibilities are endless. There’s just so much more that we can do. Technology doesn’t have to be so rigid. It can be fluid like the mind is and that’s what we’re trying to foster with this event.”You can find more information on the Seed to Stage Academy and secure your spot via the official event website.
Published on April 13, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Chris: [email protected] | @chris_iseman Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ The last time Syracuse played Providence, the Orange felt more frustration than anything else. Despite winning the game, SU couldn’t hide its feelings about the way the Friars played.‘That’s not the way you want to play lacrosse,’ SU goaltender John Galloway said last year after that game. ‘There’s no beating around the bush. That’s not lacrosse, what we played today.’Galloway and Syracuse (9-1, 2-0 Big East) will head to Foxboro, Mass., on Saturday (4 p.m., Time Warner Sports) to play Providence (3-7, 0-2) at Gillette Stadium, finally getting its chance to get rid of any of those lingering feelings of frustration. The frustration was brought on by the Friars’ stalling offensive game plan — and almost complete abandonment of offense — in the first period. And if the Friars have to do it again to slow SU down, they’ll have no problem doing so.Down 3-0 with five minutes left in the first quarter last season, Providence midfielder Jake Nolan stood behind the net with the ball in his stick and never moved. The Friars stopped passing and dodging, choosing instead to drain the clock rather than risk losing possession and digging into a deeper hole. The Orange was in complete command, and Providence head coach Chris Burdick knew he had to slow it down.‘I think that’s what you saw last year,’ Burdick said in a phone interview Wednesday. ‘The tempo of the game was starting to get out of control, and we felt that if we could keep a 3-0 score going into the second quarter, we’d have a much better chance to win than if we let them keep rolling on us.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFor a brief time, the Friars were successful. They scored three times in the second period, but a series of SU runs in the second half let the Orange pull away for an easy 14-5 win. Burdick said teams familiar with his coaching style would know that when Providence is down, it’ll hold the ball and take back the pace of the game for as long as it can.For Burdick, the game plan worked, as it kept the Orange from having extra possessions. On Saturday, Burdick said that’ll be the key for the Friars again.‘They’re extremely dynamic, and they have a lot of weapons and a lot of talent, and they go really deep,’ Burdick said of Syracuse. ‘The first thing that jumps off the page to you is possessions, winning possessions and winning faceoffs.’The theme of controlling possessions will take precedence once again from the start. That’s especially true, considering the Orange is outscoring its opponents 39-20 in the first quarter of its games. And Providence has struggled early all season, being outscored 23-13 in the first period.Burdick called it a ‘perfect storm.’ One team’s dominance is another team’s constant struggle. Although for Syracuse, that’s still not a reason to look at this game as an easy win. After SU fell to Cornell on Tuesday, head coach John Desko emphasized that any opponent can be a threat if his players aren’t focused in practice or going into the game.‘We can’t approach our next game like that,’ Desko said. ‘I think one of the things that we’ll get out of this is the guys need to come in really focused for practice. And I think, as coaches, we’ve got them to understand who our next opponent is.’That next opponent is a team ready to take control of the game as soon as it gets the opportunity. Against Cornell, SU came out slowly. It didn’t match the Big Red’s hustle or intensity. Providence is not Cornell, but if SU overlooks it too much, it may find itself in another game of catch-up. Like it did last year, the Friars will look to do what they believe is necessary to have a chance to win.If Saturday goes the way the whole season has gone for Syracuse, Providence will only bring its best. The Friars will do anything they need to do to score, including holding onto the ball to limit SU’s possessions. Syracuse might be the favorite, but it’s still looking to make adjustments the next time it takes the field.Or else that frustration will only continue.‘Every team we get, we get their best game,’ SU attack JoJo Marasco said. ‘We’re going to have to come out and play with more excitement and pick up our game a little bit.’[email protected]
