Chris Cornell, Tom Morello, Brad Wilk, and Tim Commerford have reunited as Audioslave for the first time in over a decade at the Anti-Inaugural Ball at the Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles last night. The Soundgarden and Rage Against the Machine supergroup performed three tracks off their debut 2002 self-titled LP, including “Like a Stone”, “Cochise”, and “Show Me How to Live.”The band hadn’t performed together since November of 2005, and officially broke up in early 2007 after releasing their third LP Revelations. It’s not likely that the band will continue this reunion in any shape or form, rather, it seemed to have been a one-time thing for the anti-Trump concert.Watch the entire performance below, courtesy of YouTube user Ted Weitzman:In a previous statement the band explained, “The Anti-Inaugural Ball is a celebration of resistance. Resistance to racism. Resistance to sexism. Resistance to homophobia. Resistance to bullying. Resistance to environmental devastation. Resistance to fascism. Resistance to Donald Trump. We are staring down the barrel of a dystopian nightmare unless we act NOW, unless we fight back NOW. We intend to create ‘No Trump Zones’ across the country; in our homes, our schools, our places of work, and our concert stages. Bad Presidents make for great music. Join us as we get loud and stand together to defend our rights, our country, and our planet.”The event also featured performances from Prophets of Rage, along with special sets from Jackson Browne, Jack Black, Vic Mensa, and the Los Angeles Freedom Choir.

The fugitive of the high-profile Bank Bali corruption case, who reportedly is staying in Malaysia, had requested last week through his attorneys that the case review trial be held virtually, citing his health condition as the reason for his absence. He filed the case review petition against his conviction to the South Jakarta Court in early June after being wanted by authorities since his escape in 2009.One of the prosecutors, Ridwan Ismawanta, also asked the judges to reject the online hearing request. He said, citing Supreme Court circular No. 1/2012 on case review procedure, that teleconference hearings could only be held at district courts, prosecutors’ offices and detention centers and were only applicable to prisoners, defendants and witnesses.“The plaintiff’s request [for an online hearing] is disrespectful to the court and [what he did] is contempt of court,” he said.Read also: House deputy speaker reported for not allowing supervisory hearing for Djoko Tjandra’s case He added that Djoko’s absence was unacceptable as his team of lawyers did not present evidence of his health condition.Djoko’s lawyer Andi Putra Kusuma conveyed in last week’s hearing that his client had been ill and could not attend the hearings because he was undergoing medical treatment in Malaysia.The panel of judges did not clearly state whether the case review hearing would be continued or stopped, after adjourning it for around 1.5 hours on Monday afternoon.The team of prosecutors, Ridwan said, refused to sign the dossiers of the hearing, insisting that the defendant must be present for the case review trial.He said the prosecutors’ refusal had not dropped the case review petition yet as he suspected it could be forwarded to the Supreme Court.“The petition must be denied without the presence of the defendant,” he said as reported by tempo.co.Topics : Prosecutors at the South Jakarta District Court have demanded that the panel of judges drop the case review plea filed by notorious fugitive Djoko Soegiharto Tjandra as they also ask for judges to deny the graft convict’s request for a virtual hearing following his consecutive absence.“We demand the panel of judges reject the case review petition filed by Djoko Sugiarto Tjandra and declare the request cannot be accepted,” a team of prosecutors said in the broadcast hearing at the court on Monday.The panel of judges, presided over by judge Nazar Effriandi, held the hearing for the fourth time on Monday, which Djoko failed to attend again.
Verna and Peter Dauterive Hall, USC’s first interdisciplinary social sciences building, opened for the first day of classes on Monday.Dauterive Hall, which was spearheaded by the Provosts’ office rather than an individual school, will have a special emphasis on collaboration and interdisciplinary studies.Working together · The $30 million building will house several research institutes and its entire lower level will be dedicated to research. — Christine Yoo | Daily Trojan“The donor, Verna Dauterive, had a vision for the building that it be a space activated with students, and focused on collaboration,” said Rob Cooper, vice provost for academic operations and strategy.Dauterive, an honorary USC Trustee, pledged $30 million for the six-story, 110,000-square-foot building in 2008, in memory of her late husband Peter Dauterive. Construction began in fall 2012, and the building was completed on-time and on-budget at the end of June 2014.Classrooms located on the ground level of the building will host undergraduate and graduate courses across a variety of subjects in the David and Dana Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences, the Marshall School of Business, the Gould School of Law and the Sol Price School of Public Policy, among others.The centerpiece of the building is a five-story atrium that will house several research institutes including the Center for Economic and Social Research, Center for Mind and Society, Leonard D. Schaeffer Center for Health Policy and Economics, Schwarzenegger Institute for State and Global Policy and the Sol Price Center for Social Innovation.“We chose an architect that could help us create our vision of collaborative space and what it meant to researchers,” Cooper said. “The atrium building will allow collaboration to be based in the center of the [hall].”Provost Professor of Psychology and Marketing Norbert Schwarz and Dean’s Professor of Psychology Daphna Oyserman brought the USC Dornsife Mind and Society Center to the university from the University of Michigan last year. They look forward to utilizing the building.“The building has excellent research space,” Schwarz said. “The whole lower level is research space for interviews, laboratories and space for representative panels for surveys, so there’s great infrastructure.”Though much of the space will be used for research, undergraduate students are also looking to capitalize on the collaborative nature of the building.Dauterive Hall will also be looking to add more research institutes to the building. Only two of five atrium floors are currently occupied. Administrators and faculty look forward to using the remaining areas as a collaborative space.“Collaboration is always important, and is one of the hallmarks in what USC believes in for students, faculty and research centers,” said Bonnie Reiss, global director of the Schwarzenegger Institute for State and Global Policy.
