This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Grateful Dead’s legendary Barton Hall show, a performance that took place on 5/8/77 at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York and that is widely considered one of the “best” Grateful Dead show—this is for a number of reasons including the pristine soundboard recording by Betty Cantor-Jackson, which was then widely disseminated to fans across the United States. However, it’s important not to lose the Barton Hall show in history; their extensive ’77 run was chock full of wonderful shows, particularly because the tour came on the heels of Terrapin Station, which the entire band was stoked on as their most polished album up to that point (eliciting Weir to tell Rolling Stone “People won’t believe it’s us. . . . It’s the Dead without all those wrong notes.”). In honor of the anniversaries of both the 5/8/77 Barton Hall show and their May ’77 tour as a whole, two new records have been released: the long-awaited official release of the iconic 5/8/77 Barton Hall show as well as an 11-disc box set, Get Shown The Light, which features a collection of performances captured by Cantor-Jackson during May, forty years ago.Listen To The Grateful Dead’s Most Famous Performance, Cornell ’77, On Its 40th AnniversarySomewhat ironically, both of these releases have made their way onto Billboard’s top 15 albums chart—marking the two highest-charting Grateful Dead albums in over thirty years. The Cornell ’77 release came in at #10 on the chart. The massive Get Shown The Light compilation (which includes Dead spring ’77 performances at Cornell, as well as New Haven, CT; Boston, MA; and Buffalo, NY) rings in at #15. As the 40th anniversary of these shows come and go, with the Grateful Dead’s albums receiving more commercial “success” than ever in the past three decades, I think it’s pretty clear that no, our love will not fade away.

By Brad HaireUniversity of GeorgiaWhether you’re in a rural field or in a city garden, pick up a handful of soil. Inside your hand could be as many living organisms as there are people on the earth. One gram of soil could have several billion bacteria. It could contain as many as 5,000 kinds of organisms.”Soil microorganisms constitute the largest single undescribed source of genetic richness and diversity on the planet,” said Mark Williams, a soil microbiologist with the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.Micro respectThese microbes are the unsung heroes of a healthy environment, Williams said. He’s trying to find out more about how and why they do what they do when exposed to stresses like when soil becomes dry.Soil microorganisms include nematodes, protozoa and algae. Most soil microorganisms, he said, fall under three categories: fungi, actinomycetes and bacteria.In most cases, microorganisms account for as much as 95 percent of the total weight of organisms in soil, although the other ones, including worms and insects, are the only ones you see.Studying, identifying, numbering and comparing species of microorganisms you can’t see with the naked eye, Williams said, can be tough.He uses nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. It’s better known by its medical name: magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI. He uses some DNA-based methods and isotope analysis, too, to study his tiny subjects.In recent decades, the need for sustainable agricultural practices has grown. This basically means giving as much back to the environment as you take from it to grow a crop or raise livestock. It includes reducing and more precisely using farm chemicals and fertilizers in soil.But to do this, Williams said, you have to understand microorganisms, the primary agents that supply nutrients to crops.Microorganisms do mainly three things:* Clean up the world by decomposing plant litter such as dead roots, leaves and sticks.* Release and make available basic plant nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus and sulfur.* Make it easier for water to get into the soil and for plant roots to penetrate and grow.They can catch nutrients from the atmosphere, too, and break down some pollution like sewage and chemical spills.Wet or dryWilliams looks at how a soil’s environment can determine what kind of and how many microorganisms are in it. He also wants to know how they can affect and change the soil environment around them.His recent studies focus on how soil microbial communities respond to wet and dry soils. This is vital to agriculture in Georgia, he said, where a growing season can have extended periods of either wet or dry conditions.Knowing how microorganisms act or don’t act at different levels of soil moisture, from drought to extreme rain, can help scientists and farmers get the most out of the chemicals and fertilizers they put on crops.

Murrell also earned a spot on College Soccer News’ national team of the week.Syracuse defeated Albany, 2-1, on Oct. 7, thanks in part to Murrell’s corner-kick goal that night. He also assisted on both of Hilliard’s goals in SU’s 3-1 win over Wake Forest on Saturday. Murrell’s six assists on the season rank him second in the Atlantic Coast Conference.Syracuse was also named the No. 2 team in the country in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America coaches poll Tuesday.The Orange will try to solidify that ranking as it travels to Connecticut on Tuesday for a 7 p.m. matchup against the Huskies in Storrs, Connecticut.
