Dead & Company Shares Pro-Shot Video Of “If I Had The World To Give” Debut From 2017 Ohio Performance [Watch]

first_imgDead & Company is taking a well-earned rest this week after giving Deadheads and jam-loving snowbirds four days and nights of musical fun down in Mexico at the 2019 “Playing in the Sand” concert destination event last weekend. Prior to last weekend, the band announced that they would start rolling out the soundboard recordings from all of their performances throughout the fall 2017 and winter 2018 tours.As Dead & Company continues to share the audio from 2017-18 shows to streaming services every Friday, it appears they’ve spent some time perusing through their video vault as well. On Thursday, the band shared the pro-shot video of their first-ever performance of “If I Had The World To Give” (featuring bassist Oteil Burbridge on lead vocals) from their performance at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio back on November 25th, 2017.Related: Dead & Company Wrap Playing In The Sand With Fan-Favorites, Nod To Super Blood Wolf Moon The Robert Hunter/Jerry Garcia-penned Grateful Dead ballad initially appeared on the Dead’s 1978 Shakedown Street album. With this performance, Oteil proved once again that he could easily be considered the strongest vocalist in the band when he finds a Dead tune that fits within his range and comfort zone. The five-minute ballad stretches out to a relaxing seven-minutes in length in this version, as the band makes sure to take their time in reviving the Hunter/Garcia tune. This rendition also includes a pair of solos from John Mayer in the middle, and again towards the end to help ease listeners into the song’s closing notes. Fans can watch the entire performance in the freshly served video below.Dead & Company – “If I Had The World To Give” (Grateful Dead cover) – 11/25/2017[Video: Dead & Company]SiriusXM‘s ‘Tales From The Golden Road’ host Gary Lambert also provided his take on the live cover with some liner notes shared with the video’s debut on Thursday:“If you had to rank the most undeservedly obscure items in the Grateful Dead songbook, there would have to be a place high on the list for this lovely Garcia-Hunter collaboration, recorded and released as the closing track on the Dead’s “Shakedown Street” album in 1978, but performed onstage by the band only three times (all in that year), after which it mysteriously vanished from the repertoire. It was only after Oteil Burbridge emerged as a lead vocalist with Dead & Company that the song made its welcome return with this performance in Columbus.”Dead & Company will take the rest of the winter and spring months off before starting the Dead machine up again for their 2019 summer tour, which is scheduled to begin with a pair of gigs in Mountainview, California on May 31st and June 1st.

Library association awards Carnegie medals to McBride, Giggs

first_imgNEW YORK (AP) — The American Library Association has announced its winners of the Carnegie medals for literary excellence. James McBride won in fiction for his novel “Deacon King Kong.” Rebecca Giggs won in nonfiction for “Fathoms: The World in the Whale.” McBride and Giggs each have strong childhood memories of libraries. McBride would visit them often because they were a “safe space” and because his family couldn’t afford to buy many books. Giggs remembers her mother getting into aerobics “in a big way” and, a few nights a week, dropping off her and her sister at a library near the workout space.last_img

Plasan of Bennington part of $1.05 billion armored vehicle contract

first_img(ends) A Bennington, Vermont, defense contractor is part of a billion-dollar US Military contract to build more armored vehicles for use in Afghanistan. The Plasan North America plant is expected to hire 200 workers to fulfill the contract, while the deal could also generate another 100 new jobs with subcontractors in the region.The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) announced Tuesday it has selected Oshkosh Corporation to supply MRAP All Terrain Vehicles (M-ATV) for its fighting forces. Oshkosh has received an initial delivery order from the U.S. Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command (TACOM) Life Cycle Management Command (LCMC) for 2,244 M-ATVs valued at $1.05 billion, following months of government testing on multiple production-ready vehicles. Oshkosh Defense teamed with Plasan North America, with a plant in Bennington for the M-ATV armor system to provide an advanced armor solution. Plasan also developed the armor system used on more than 5,000 legacy MRAPs and thousands of Oshkosh Armored Cab MTVRs already in theater.Governor Douglas said in a written statement: “I would like to extend congratulations to Plasan North America for being part of the winning contract team with Oshkosh Corporation for a $1 billion order of armored vehicles for the U.S. military. “In 2006, I was pleased to personally welcome Plasan to Vermont after our economic development team helped recruit them to the Bennington area.  Without the Vermont Economic Progress Council’s decision to approve Plasan for tax credits totaling more than $1 million, the company may have located elsewhere.  The granting of $1.16 million loan and a further guarantee of $500,000 line of credit by the Vermont Economic Development Authority, or VEDA, also helped secure Plasan’s commitment to Vermont. “Recruiting this kind of good-paying, high technology manufacturing company is a key component of my economic development strategy, and this contract will be a tremendous benefit to Plasan and the Bennington area.  This really demonstrates the effectiveness of our job creation incentive programs. While we obviously don’t have the resources other larger states do, we can compete for companies like Plasan if we have the tools.”Robert G. Bohn, Oshkosh Corporation chairman and chief executive officer said: “We are proud that Oshkosh was chosen to provide its M-ATV offering to the U.S. Armed Forces. Our M-ATV design combines the crew protection warfighters have come to expect in MRAP vehicles with the extreme mobility and durability needed to negotiate Afghanistan’s mountainous off-road terrain.”“Due to the urgent need of our Armed Forces for a survivable and highly mobile vehicle, our Corporation’s number one priority is meeting the Department’s accelerated delivery schedule of the Oshkosh M-ATV. Oshkosh Corporation will put whatever resources are necessary to meet or exceed the government’s delivery schedule. While we believe we can meet or exceed the government’s current delivery requirements, we intend to enter into discussions with other manufacturers to determine if they can assist in the production of the Oshkosh M-ATV.”Bohn went on to say, “As we begin supplying our advanced, high-performance vehicles, our full-service aftermarket support network will be available with replacement parts, technical support, and repair or refurbishment services. If demands for technology or component upgrades should arise, our team is ready to deliver.”Andy Hove, Oshkosh Corporation executive vice president and president, Defense said, “Much has already been done to ensure we can meet the government’s delivery schedule. In recognition of the urgent need, we began daily production of Oshkosh M-ATVs on our flexible manufacturing line a few weeks ago. We and our suppliers have already made significant investments in materials and are well positioned to accelerate our manufacturing capabilities.”The Oshkosh Defense investments, planning and engineering activities, and production of M-ATVs in advance of this award will allow for accelerated delivery of the Oshkosh M-ATV, with initial vehicles available to TACOM LCMC in July.In order to achieve the off-road mobility that soldiers and Marines need in Afghanistan, Oshkosh integrated its TAK-4 independent suspension system onto the vehicle.As further testament to the government’s confidence in this suspension system, the company recently received a supply order to equip more than 1,500 legacy MRAPs (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected) with the TAK-4 system and continues to work with the Army to evaluate using the system on additional legacy MRAP models. The TAK-4 suspension system is used on more than 10,000 Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacements (MTVR) supplied to the Marines and Seabees, as well as on the Marines’ Logistics Vehicle System Replacement (LVSR) and the Army’s next-generation Palletized Load System (PLS).Oshkosh performed more than 7,500 miles of independent off-road testing to identify possible enhancements to the vehicle so it would meet or surpass the performance requirements in the rugged terrain in Afghanistan.Oshkosh Corporation is a leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of a broad range of specialty access equipment, commercial, fire & emergency and military vehicles and vehicle bodies.(Source: Oshkosh Corporation; issued June 30, 2009)last_img read more

‘Fixed’ rates on open-end loans

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading » Has your credit union advertised or disclosed rates on open-end loans as “fixed” without specifying a time period that the rate will be fixed?If so, you’ll likely have to maintain that fixed rate until the account is closed either by the member or by the credit union.In February 2010, the Federal Reserve Board issued a Regulation Z final rule that amended the general disclosure requirements for certain open-end loans and the advertising requirements for all open-end loans (Reg Z Sections 1026.5 and 1026.16, respectively).The Fed adopted the two amendments to restrict the use of the term “fixed” (or any similar term to describe a rate disclosed in tabular disclosures provided with account-opening documents and in advertisements) for open-end loans to instances when the rate would not increase until the expiration of a specified time period.last_img

Four killed as Tropical Storm Isaias pounds US Northeast

first_imgCooper said he had spoken with US President Donald Trump, who had pledged aid.A man in the New York City borough of Queens became the fourth fatality when a tree crushed a car he was inside, local authorities said.Social media images showed tornadoes in Cape May, Marmora and Long Beach Island along New Jersey’s southern shore, and tornado damage in Dover, Delaware.In Bear, Delaware, Tammy Trelford Campos said she was terrified to hear a tornado destroy her backyard.”The damage is crazy. No power, almost all my trees are split or uprooted, water is coming in all windows,” she said on Facebook.New York City, much of New Jersey, all of Massachusetts and other parts of New England went under a tornado watch. New York state officials temporarily shut down coronavirus testing centers as a precaution.As of 2 p.m. ET on Tuesday the storm was about 20 miles (35 kilometers) west of Albany, New York, with maximum sustained winds of 65 miles per hour (100 km per hour), according to the Miami-based US National Hurricane Center.”The center of Isaias will continue to move farther inland over eastern New York and Vermont this afternoon and evening, and over southern Canada tonight,” the NHC said. Tropical Storm Isaias killed at least four people on Tuesday as it made its way up the US Atlantic Coast, including two deaths at a North Carolina trailer park that was struck by a tornado spun off by hurricane-force winds.The storm knocked out power to more than 2.8 million homes and businesses from New York to North Carolina, according to electric companies.Isaias, which was briefly a Category 1 hurricane when it made landfall in North Carolina late on Monday, reduced the mobile home park in the north of the state to rubble hours later, leaving two people dead. “It doesn’t look real. It looks like something on TV. There’s nothing there,” Bertie County Sheriff John Holley told local reporters. “Vehicles are turned over. Vehicles are piled on top of each other. It’s just very sad.”A mother and her two children who were missing for hours after the storm ripped through the area were found safe later on Tuesday.In Mechanicsville, North Carolina, a large tree fell on a car, killing the driver, the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office said. The sheriff’s department did not immediately identify the motorist.North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper said on Twitter that as of 2:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday more than 172,000 homes remained without power, even as Isaias moved northward and skies cleared.center_img Topics :last_img read more

PGGM prepares resolution to force through independent board at Oracle

first_imgIn the US, shareholders have a non-binding right to vote on remuneration.Although Ellison has recently announced that he will step down as chief executive, he also indicated that he would become the key trustee for technical matters, as well as chairman of the board. “This won’t improve the extremely bad corporate governance at Oracle and will confirm Ellison’s power,” Jackson said.Oracle’s board has twice ignored a majority of shareholders rejecting its remuneration policy.According to Jackson, Oracle also failed to reply to a previous offer to discuss the resolution.The FD quoted Jackson as saying: “We want to increase the pressure on the company. If this is going nowhere again, we could consider disinvestment from Oracle.”She declined, however, to provide details about PGGM’s stake in the technology firm, pointing out that the asset manager’s initiative was a “matter of principle”.“Oracle is one of the worst performers on corporate governance,” Jackson said.“Whereas banks and other technology companies are open to engagement, Oracle is fully keeping the boat away from the shore.”Last year, PGGM, RPMI and CalSTRS voted against the entire Oracle board in a dispute over pay and board accountability, after the company’s compensation committee ignored their concerns.In a letter at the time, the three players noted that their criticisms also extended to “wider issues of proper board accountability”. PGGM, the €178bn Dutch asset manager, is preparing a shareholder resolution to appoint independent trustees at California-based technology firm Oracle. In Dutch daily Het Financieele Dagblad (FD), Catherine Jackson, PGGM’s adviser, said: “The resolution is a next logical step, as shareholders lack any right at Oracle, where all board members are loyal to CEO Larry Ellison.”PGGM has been critical Ellison’s power and Oracle’s high remuneration levels since 2010, working in tandem with UK railway scheme Railpen.The large US teachers scheme CalSTRS, the automobile industry scheme AUW and the Nathan Cummings Foundation have now also joined PGGM in its bid to effect change at Oracle, Jackson said.last_img read more

Arsenal set to loan out 12 players this January

first_img Loading… According to The Athletic, Eddie Nketiah and Emile Smith Rowe are receiving the most admiring glances as Mikel Arteta looks to narrow down his squad.Nketiah, who left Leeds after just two league starts in five months, is said to be deciding between Bristol City, Sheffield Wednesday and Nottingham Forest for his next excursion.Brentford were also reportedly interested but have fallen out of the running after being unable to guarantee a regular starting spot for the 20-year-old striker.Meanwhile a number of clubs are making presentations to Arsenal about what they can offer attacking midfielder Smith Rowe.An underwhelming stint at RB Leipzig at the back end of last season is thought to make a loan to an English club this time around more likely.Huddersfield are the side most prominently linked with the 19-year-old so far.Game time is a priority for the club’s promising youngsters with Smith Rowe only managing six appearances this campaign.Otherwise, an additional ten players are reportedly listed to leave on loan or permanent deals this month.One first-team departure could be Shkodran Mustafi – the German recentlychanging agents in an apparent bid to find a new team. The January window action is set to escalate after a stand-offish opening from English clubs with two Gunners youngsters among those lined up for loan moves. Arsenal may have started the month quiet on the transfer front but reports suggest as many as twelve players could leave.Advertisementcenter_img Read Also: Man Utd, Tottenham battle Arsenal for Barca defenderThat is in spite of three key defenders currently being unavailable due to injury – Kieran Tierney, Calum Chambers and Hector Bellerin.Dani Ceballos, Rob Holding and Gabriel Martinelli are also battling fitness issues.But Granit Xhaka is set to stay put after Arteta helped the midfielder reconcile with fans after an infamous bust-up saw him lose the club captaincy.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Promoted ContentThe Funniest Prankster Grandma And Her GrandsonBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever MadeWho Earns More Than Ronaldo?10 Risky Jobs Some Women Do6 Most Unforgettable Bridges In The WorldThe 10 Best Secondary Education Systems In The WorldYou’ve Only Seen Such Colorful Hairdos In A Handful Of AnimeWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?2020 Tattoo Trends: Here’s What You’ll See This YearThis Guy Photoshopped Himself Into Celeb Pics And It’s HystericalBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For ThemThe Rarest And Most Valuable Card In The Whole Worldlast_img read more

Indiana Jobs Rate Slightly Down At 5.8 Percent

first_imgINDIANAPOLIS – The jobless rate in Indiana remained steady in August dropping to 5.8 percent, according to a newly released report from the Indiana Department of Workforce Development.The unemployment rate in July was one-tenth of a percentage point higher at 5.9 percent.Despite the decrease in unemployment, Indiana’s private sector shed 2,600 jobs in August, led primarily by the Private, Educational & Health Services sector, which declined by 4,100 over the month.Losses were somewhat offset by a growth of 900 jobs in the Manufacturing sector, which has added more than 20,000 jobs over the past year.“Indiana’s unemployment rate has decreased 1.7 percent over the past year, while the labor force has expanded by more than 51,000 workers, which is quite remarkable,” said Scott B. Sanders, Commissioner of the Indiana Department of Workforce Development.“During the same period, the Hoosier State has also added more than 56,000 private sector jobs. Together, these figures stand in stark contrast to our Midwestern neighbors.”Indiana remains the leading state in the nation in manufacturing job growth over the past year and is ranked second overall in the most manufacturing jobs since 2009.last_img read more

DeSantis Says Schools Should Open; PBC Prepares for Distance Learning

first_imgThe Palm Beach County School District released new details on Thursday as to how the 2020-21 academic school year may look, one day after school board members reached a consensus to begin the year with online-only classes.A spokesperson for the district sats that, unlike last March when teachers had just a few days to prepare and switch to distance learning, the district has had all summer to prepare for the possibility of virtual teaching with the new school year.In addition, Justin Katz, the president of the Palm Beach County Classroom Teachers Association, says the district will give teachers professional development training over the next few weeks, in an effort to help them be better equipped for online teaching.“There’s going to be a very rigid set of rules and working conditions that teachers will have to adhere to or face reprimand because that’s what we need to do to perform uniform high quality education,” Katz explains.In addition, a spokesperson says the school district plans to distribute 82,000 more laptops to students and make WiFi more readily available throughout the district.At Wednesday’s school board meeting, board members decided to start the 2020-21 academic year, which is scheduled to begin on Monday, Aug. 10, with online-only classes.A final vote will take place this Wednesday, July 15.WATCH LIVE: Press conference with U.S. Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia in Jacksonvillehttps://t.co/iPQ1J4aefk— Ron DeSantis (@GovRonDeSantis) July 9, 2020 Claiming that students statewide have suffered an “education gap” from online distance learning, the governor asked school districts to consider opening campuses right away for the 2020-21 academic year.“I want our kids to be able to minimize this education gap that I think has developed,” DeSantis explained. “In spite of good efforts with the online, it’s just not the same. So I worry about that gap.”The governor went on to say that he is concerned about the social impact that distance learning has on children.“There’s something to be said for being in school, seeing people you know, growing up like a normal kid,” according to the governor.He added that he would not hesitate to put his three children, who are not yet old enough to attendAccording to Gov. DeSantis, exceptions should be made for students who have significant health issues, and that choice is up to parents.“Different parents have different calculations. If a parent wants to opt for virtual education, they should absolutely be able to do that. We shouldn’t be forcing them to do any kind of decisions,” DeSantis said.There are 232,718 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 4,009 deaths in Florida as of Thursday.Palm Beach County has 18,656 cases and 578 deaths. Board members also suggested the possibly of having teachers go into their classrooms several days a week to use their SMART Board and materials to teach children at home.A vote on that suggestion is also set for Wednesday.Following the final decisions, the school board will submit their plan to the Florida Department of Education for final approval.Last week, the Florida’s Department of Education issued an order requiring public school districts to open campuses five days a week.However, Palm Beach County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Donald Fennoy said the district has some flexibility with that order, as the district takes recommendations and advice from health leaders.On Wednesday, President Trump said he wants schools to reopen nationwide in the fall, and threatened to cut federal funding if they fail to reopen.Meanwhile, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said Thursday that children should be learning in classrooms.“Educating our kids is absolutely essential,” DeSantis said during a news conference at the Jacksonville Port Authority. “I have no doubt we can do this safely.”WATCH GOVERNOR ON SCHOOLS:last_img read more
