Jimmy Fallon is known for his musical parodies. Whether he’s making fun of Neil Young or Bob Dylan, Barry Gibb or Mick Jagger, Fallon loves a good parody of a music legend. Well, Fallon got a taste of his own medicine last night, as Saturday Night Live veteran and current star of The Last Man On Earth Will Forte stopped by The Tonight Show last night to poke a little fun at Gregg Allman.Portrayed as a special guest of The Roots, Forte fashioned himself as “Gregg Almond” from the “Almond Brothers”. Forte’s character claimed that the Allman Brothers are just a rip-off version of his Almond Brothers band and at one point he performs a joke-song with help from the band. There are a lot of almond/nut jokes and…well, I’ll let Forte and Fallon take it from here.See below for to watch Forte’s appearance as “Gregg Almond” on The Tonight show with Jimmy Fallon.

And because the complexity of your infrastructure continues to evolve it is difficult to determine what to test and how to test it! In working with hundreds of credit unions each year, it is quite common for me to see that most credit unions focus their Disaster Recovery (DR) testing energy on the core transaction processor. That’s one test. What about your delivery channels (ATMs, Online Banking, Shared Branching, etc) or critical business processes such as payroll and cash management? Can you start to see where the “One DR test per year” approach to may be inadequate and/or perhaps even negligent in today’s high risk environment?I can almost hear what you are thinking – “great …. more testing” (imagine this drawn out in the infamous voice of the boss from Office Space – That’d be grreaaatt.)And I get it – between operational duties, continuity planning, security implementation/testing and compliance/regulatory checklists – you are tapped out! continue reading »

Fair caught the ball in the left corner and waited. The Syracuse forward had time to size up his first 3-point attempt of the game, which dropped smoothly through the basket moments later.The shot – the first field goal by either team – came in the first 71 seconds in the game, but it revealed to St. John’s that Fair could score from anywhere on the floor, something he put on display for the remaining 39 minutes of the matchup on Sunday.“I kind of felt my rhythm early,” Fair said. “I made a couple 3s and then after that, that kind of opened up the rest of my game. That’s why I was able to drive and make the midrange shot as well.”Fair scored in a variety of ways – from beyond the arc and on the offensive glass, on drives and midrange jump shots – en route a notching a team-high 17 points in the Orange’s (20-3, 8-2 Big East) 77-58 victory over the Red Storm (15-9, 7-5) in the Carrier Dome on Sunday. He was solid from start to finish, picking his spots within the offense and coming through to thwart a St. John’s comeback bid in the second half.“C.J. was terrific as always,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said. “It was a good win.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFair’s open 3 from the corner to start the game got his adrenaline flowing. The confidence grew from there, as he skied for an offensive rebound and banked in the follow to extend an early SU lead to six.A midrange jumper from the left corner swished through the net just as his long-range attempt to get it started did. It showed off another part of his well-rounded game and gave Syracuse a comfortable 12-point lead with 8:41 to play in the first half.Then came his second 3.Again it came from the left corner. And again with an easy swish through the net. Only this time Fair exaggerated his follow-through, holding it up for his teammates and opponents to see before he trotted down the court with a smirk on his face.“I felt good because I knocked down my first few 3s,” Fair said. “The team kept leaving me open because I’m not really known as the 3-point threat I guess and for me to knock it down, them two shots got me going.”St. John’s scouting report changed after the break.The Red Storm was well aware of Fair’s ability to hit the open 3 and opted to challenge the forward when he caught the ball on the perimeter.And as Fair said, that only opened up the final weapon in his offensive arsenal.With St. John’s closing in on Syracuse, cutting its lead to five points less than nine minutes into the second half, Fair caught the ball in the left corner, behind the arc. He drove baseline, absorbing contact from Red Storm forward JaKarr Sampson with each step to the basket, and released a high-arcing shot beyond the reach of St. John’s 6-foot-9 shot-blocker Chris Obekpa.The ball bounced around the rim and dropped. Syracuse led by seven and the threat was over. The Orange’s lead would never dip below eight in the final 11 minutes.“C.J. was great,” point guard Michael Carter-Williams said. “He got to the hoop, made his free throws, the pull-up jumper was good – he just had an all-around game and that’s the type of player C.J. is.”The junior also paced SU with nine rebounds in a steady 39-minute performance that has come to be expected by Boeheim and Fair’s teammates.Syracuse guard Brandon Triche said he expects Fair’s scoring average to continue to climb down the stretch. And he was quick to point out the forward leads the team in rebounding while playing nearly 40 minutes every game.But Sunday, it was Fair’s contribution to the offense that stood out. His first 3 sparked a strong start by the Orange, his midrange jumpers kept St. John’s at arm’s length for much of the contest, and his tough drives sealed the game in the second half.His all-around game came to the forefront right when Syracuse needed it against St. John’s.“He’s our most complete or consistent player and he’s just bringing it every night,” Triche said. “That’s what we need.” Comments
Matteo Darmian Manchester United expect to wrap up the signing of full-back Matteo Darmian within the next 24 hours.The Red Devils have agreed a fee of around €18m (£12.9m), plus add-ons, with Torino and are now finalising terms with the Italy international.Louis van Gaal had made it a priority to sign an experienced right-back this summer having used Antonio Valencia in that position for much of last season.Darmian, who has been capped 13 times by Italy, fits the bill and his versatility is believed to be a key factor behind the move, with the 25-year-old also able to operate in the centre of defence.He will become United’s second signing of the summer, following the £25million arrival of Memphis Depay from PSV.Torino president Urbano Cairo hinted earlier this week that Darmian could depart after four seasons at the club.“I told Darmian last year after the World Cup that if offers arrived for him I could not sell him then,” Cairo told the Italian press.“We had already sold (Ciro) Immobile and (Alessio) Cerci and I could not afford to lose another excellent player. But I promised him we would review his situation this summer.“Football is like this and it’s normal that an extraordinary man like Matteo wants to try and win the Champions League. Torino can’t win the Champions League.”With Darmian arriving, United will listen to offers for Rafael after the Brazilian failed to convince Van Gaal of his worth last season. 1
