The Electric Beethoven album Beathoven came out last week, treating fans to jammed out interpretations of the 3rd and 6th Symphonies of Ludwig van Beethoven. Spearheaded by bassist Reed Mathis, the foundations of these interpretations were certainly laid down on the album, but they truly come to life in the live setting.The band has spent the last several months debuting this “classical dance music” material to the live setting, with a recent show at the Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland, Ohio. Thanks to Reed Mathis and Electric Beethoven, we can listen to the opening segment, a 17-minute “Finale” from Symphony No.3, remastered from the night’s soundboard audio.We recently sat down with Mathis to discuss the project.”I honestly think that this is the beginning of the most exciting and rewarding music of my life so far,” he explained. Read the full interview here.You can catch Reed Mathis and Electric Beethoven at this year’s Brooklyn Comes Alive event on Saturday, October 22nd, alongside 50+ artists at three beloved Brooklyn venues. With members of Dead & Company, The String Cheese Incident, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Lettuce, Snarky Puppy, The Disco Biscuits and more all performing, we can’t wait for this festival!

Two Chinese nationals have been indicted for seeking to steal COVID-19 vaccine research and hacking hundreds of companies in the United States and abroad, including defense contractors, the US Justice Department said Tuesday.Li Xiaoyu, 34, and Dong Jiazhi, 33, also targeted human rights activists in the United States, China and Hong Kong, Assistant Attorney General John Demers said.The indictment comes amid rising tensions between the global superpowers fueled by the coronavirus pandemic which President Donald Trump blames on China. Dissidents targeted The Justice Department said they also targeted “non-governmental organizations, and individual dissidents, clergy, and democratic and human rights activists in the United States and abroad, including Hong Kong and China.”According to the indictment, Li and Dong supplied the Ministry of State Security with passwords for personal email accounts belonging to Chinese dissidents, a Hong Kong community organizer, the pastor of a Christian church in Xian and a former Tiananmen Square protestor.Among the material allegedly stolen were emails between a dissident and the Dalai Lama’s office.The pair were accused of stealing source code from software companies, information about drugs under development from pharmaceutical firms and weapons designs and testing data from defense contractors.Targeted foreign companies were not identified by name.But according to the indictment they included a Dutch electronics firm, a Swedish gaming company, a Lithuanian gaming company, a German software engineering firm, a Belgian engineering software company, an Australian defense contractor, a South Korean shipbuilding firm, a Spanish electronics and defense firm and a British artificial intelligence and cancer research company.Li and Dong allegedly stole information from defense contractors regarding military satellite programs, military wireless networks and communications systems and microwave and laser systems.The indictment was returned by a grand jury in the Eastern District of Washington state on July 7 but was only unsealed on Tuesday.Li and Dong were charged with conspiracy to commit computer fraud, conspiracy to commit theft of trade secrets, wire fraud, unauthorized access of a computer and identity theft.China accused the United States last month of smearing Beijing following allegations that Chinese hackers were attempting to steal coronavirus research.The claims exacerbated tensions between the two countries, which have traded barbs over the origin of the pandemic that has killed more than 600,000 people since it emerged in China late last year.”China expresses strong dissatisfaction and firm opposition to such smearing,” foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said.”Judging from past records, the US has carried out the largest cybertheft operations worldwide,” Zhao said.Topics : “Targeted industries included, among others, high tech manufacturing; medical device, civil, and industrial engineering; business, educational, and gaming software; solar energy; pharmaceuticals; defense,” it said.”More recently, the defendants probed for vulnerabilities in computer networks of companies developing COVID-19 vaccines, testing technology, and treatments,” it said.Justice Department officials said that Li and Dong targeted biotech companies in California, Maryland, Massachusetts and elsewhere but did not appear to have actually compromised any COVID-19 research. Li and Dong, who are believed to be in China, acted in some instances “for their own personal gain” and in others for the benefit of China’s Ministry of State Security, Demers said at a news conference.”China has now taken its place, alongside Russia, Iran, and North Korea, in that shameful club of nations that provide a safe haven for cyber criminals,” Demers said.The Justice Department said Li and Dong, who were classmates at an electrical engineering college in Chengdu, have been engaged in a computer hacking campaign for the past 10 years.They have targeted companies in the United States, Australia, Belgium, Germany, Japan, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Spain, South Korea, Sweden, and Britain, it said.

ELLSWORTH — The 2017 season marked the first time that the recently revived Ellsworth/Sumner football team was eligible to participate in the Class D North playoffs. Thanks to a late-season surge, the Eagles didn’t let that opportunity go to waste.Ellsworth/Sumner won the final three games of the season in October to clinch the playoffs for the first time in history. The appearance marked the football program’s high-water mark since the varsity team returned after a hiatus of nearly six decades in 2012The Eagles had played well all season but found themselves on the losing end of several tight games. The team was 1-4 through the first five weeks but had the lead at halftime in the majority of those games.Ellsworth/Sumner players Charlie Hughes (left) and Ethan DesJardin tackle Houlton’s Ethan Carter during the first half of a high school football game Sept. 22 in Ellsworth. The victory was the first of the year for the Eagles, who later won their final three games to earn their first playoff bid. ELLSWORTH AMERICAN PHOTO BY MIKE MANDELL“The Hermon game was the only game where we weren’t really in it, but other than that, we competed with everybody,” head coach Duane Crawford said. “We knew that if we kept the spirits up and continued doing what we did, things were going to pan out.”This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textOn Oct. 7, the turnaround began when the Eagles beat Stearns in Millinocket for the second year in a row. The 49-7 score marked the biggest margin of victory in team history.In Week 7, Ellsworth/Sumner beat Orono 41-3 to avenge a loss the previous season in blowout fashion. The team continued its scoring rampage into Week 8 and secured the No. 5 seed in the Class D North playoffs with a 48-12 home win over Washington Academy.Although Ellsworth/Sumner fell to Dexter 34-20 in the first round, the defeat didn’t put a damper on what had been a historic campaign. After 56 seasons without a team and five without eligibility because of the Maine Principals’ Association’s rules regarding cooperative partnerships, the Eagles finally had a playoff berth to their name.“You spend years trying to build things up through feeder programs, teaching the game and getting kids involved, and that process can only happen when you have a lot of hard work from a lot of people,” Crawford said.Ellsworth/Sumner has a golden opportunity to build on its success next year. The Eagles had only five seniors on their 2017 roster, and with Little Ten All-Conference selections Connor Crawford and Javon Williams leading the way and a sizable freshman class incoming, the team will have high hopes once again.“We’re excited about the group we have coming back,” Duane Crawford said. “We’ve felt for a while that we’ve turned the corner, and now we can go even further.” MPA approves golf, XC, field hockey, soccer; football, volleyball moved to spring – September 10, 2020 Bio Latest posts by Mike Mandell (see all) Ellsworth runners compete in virtual Boston Marathon – September 16, 2020 Mike MandellMike Mandell is the sports editor at The Ellsworth American and Mount Desert Islander.
