first_imgFancy bread remains as far from definition as ever. The time has arrived to take action, and fancy bread ought to be put once and for all out of the region of anomalies and made thoroughly intelligible both to producer and consumer.The general progress of the nation to higher levels of dietetic luxury undoubtedly opens new avenues for the baker.The progress of the baker is undoubtedly likely to be rapid in respect to the fact that the demand for finer and much nicer flavoured bread is sure to be an ever-increasing thing. The taste for much improved bread is spreading among the classes.A glance at the menus of any American boarding house will show at once that, in bread, the transatlantic baker has created quite a new branch of dietetic fine art.last_img

first_imgPhil Lesh & Friends | Brooklyn Bowl & The Capitol Theatre | 10/30-31/17 | Photos by Bob Schultz Coming off an energetic and magical sold-out show at the Brooklyn Bowl on Mischief Night the evening prior, for Halloween, The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York, hosted Phil Lesh and an at-capacity crowd for the most anticipated show of his recent East Coast run. The Grateful Dead bassist was joined by The Terrapin Family Band (Graeme Lesh, Ross James, Alex  Koford, though minus Jason Crosby), Nicki Bluhm, Robert Randolph, and longtime friend and keyboardist Rob Barraco. The Preservation Hall Jazz Band also joined in on the Halloween festivities as well, though the New Orleans-based ensemble missed out on the previous night’s Brooklyn Bowl show due to the venue’s smaller stage.Phil Lesh Awarded Key To The Village Of Port Chester At Capitol Theatre Halloween ShowTo celebrate Halloween, the band—mostly dressed up in Day of the Dead makeup save Robert Randolph, who donned a pink bunny suit for the occasion (major props to Randolph as well who must have been suffocating on stage)—offered up a performance full of Halloween treats and tasteful covers. Hundreds of fans dressed up to party, and even most of the venue’s staff were in costume. Beautiful intricate pumpkins decorated the stage, and giant eyeballs floated down from the ceiling. With the atmosphere set, the band came to treat fans to a beautiful night of music.The music started with the upbeat crowd sing-along “The Golden Road (To Unlimited Devotion)” with some tasty passionate keys from Barraco and extended guitar jams from Ross and Graeme. After the classic “Stagger Lee”, Nicki Bluhm took us on a sweet and emotional cover of Marvin Gaye’s “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)”. Next, the beautifully-written “Let The Mountain Be My Home” segued into to the quintessential Grateful Dead Halloween song “Candyman”.“How Sweet It Is”“Candyman”A cover of Hank Ballard’s “Tore Up Over You” was up next and followed by a grungy rendition of Neil Young’s “Old Man”. In the wake of Tom Petty’s recent passing, the ensemble paid homage to the iconic musician with a rendition of “The Apartment Song”, which was made particularly sweet by the steel guitar offerings from Robert Randolph. Ending on a high, the bouncy, upbeat “Sugar Magnolia” ended the first set with a scream.“Old Man”“The Apartment Song” (Tom Petty) > “Sugar Magnolia”What would a Halloween show be without werewolves and monsters? We certainly won’t know this year, as Phil Lesh’s second set opened with Warren Zevon’s “Werewolves of London”, and The Preservation Hall Jazz Band (PHJB) joined in to give the song a New Orleans howl. The ending lyrics of “Werewolves of London” were also changed to include “I saw Peter Shapiro standing out on the street, and his hands were perfect”, referring to the legendary promoter and owner of The Capitol Theatre and Brooklyn Bowl.PHJB stayed on the stage and joined in on Stephen Stills’ “Love The One You’re With”, which saw particularly soulful vocals from Nicki Bluhm and some smooth guitar playing and B-1 organ. Boris Pickett’s all-time classic “Monster Mash” gained new life and more depth with the addition of the PHJB and Robert Randolph’s steel pedal guitar. The crowd karaoke and PHJB’s time with the rest of the band continued during the stand-out renditions of a blazing “Fire on the Mountain” and delectable “Sugaree”.“Love The One You’re With”With the stage clear, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band led the crowd on a twenty-minute mini-set that also served as a master class on horns, showmanship, and real southern funk. Ben Jaffe (Bass/Tuba), Clint Maedgen (Sax), Ronell Johnson (Trombone), Water Harris (Drums), Kyle Roussel (Piano), and Branden Lewis (Trumpet) showed themselves as great musicians and entertainers, all the while giving some old tunes new life and energy.Phil Lesh and his stacked ensemble didn’t offer drums or space on Halloween night, instead returning with a haunting rendition of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Bad Moon Rising”, which was slowed down to one-third speed to open the group’s second set. Graeme’s goosebump-inducing singing and the addition of some magical harmonies and an extensive piano solo made the number a highlight of the show. The time-honored “Playing with the Band” was up next, which segued into “Mountains of the Moon” with Phil on lead vocals. The set ended with a rousing and spiritual “Uncle John’s Band”, before the group returned with the macabre “Sampson and Deliah” as a perfect encore to end Halloween in Port Chester.“Bad Moon Rising”“Uncle John’s Band”Thank you to YouTube user Sean Roche for capturing the videos of Phil Lesh’s Halloween spooktacular at The Capitol Theatre on Tuesday.

first_imgIRENA: Southeast Asia a prime market for renewable energy growth FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Reuters:Southeast Asia is a potential hotspot for renewable energy, yet the region has not met expectations because it lacks policy frameworks that would encourage investment, the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) told Reuters.Renewables across the world have typically been boosted by policies like price subsidies and guaranteed grid takeoff. In Southeast Asia, though, barring some exceptions such as in Thailand, support for renewables has been smaller, and the region lags far behind others in renewable output despite its potential, especially for solar, geothermal and wind power.Global renewable capacity, excluding hydro, has soared from under 100,000 megawatts (MW) in 2000 to more than 1 million MW in 2017, according to IRENA data. Only a tiny portion of that has come in Southeast Asia.Now, there are also efforts underway in Southeast Asia: The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) plans to generate 23 percent of its primary energy needs from renewables by 2025, up from just over 10 percent now. To help achieve that, ASEAN and IRENA signed an agreement this week to boost renewable investment and deployment.“I think the adoption of the 23 percent target is a very good step, but that needs to be translated now into policy actions,” said [IRENA’s director general Adnan] Amin. “Over the next decade, a total of $290 billion will have to be invested for Southeast Asia to reach its targets, a ten-fold increase on the annual investments we’re seeing today,” Amin said, speaking to Reuters while attending Singapore’s International Energy Week (SIEW).Amin said renewable investment, including in Southeast Asia, would receive a boost from “dramatic reductions in the cost of renewables.” Solar panel prices have crashed to under 50 cents per watt of electricity, from around $70 per watt in 1980 as technology and manufacturing efficiency have improved. At the same time, Amin said capital markets were starting to price carbon risks, raising the cost of fossil fuels. “Financial institutions have started to bail out from financing coal, so, cost of investments in coal will rise while cost of investments in renewables are decreasing,” Amin said.More: Southeast Asia’s renewables held back by policy inaction: IRENAlast_img read more

first_imgWhether it’s regulatory developments such as the Dodd-Frank Act or seeking new ways to reach new members, technology is a key compliance tool. But do you need to make yet another investment in yet another system?Not if you have a comprehensive enterprise content management (ECM) solution in house.In the first two parts of this series, we examined how ECM, or document management, revolutionizes human resources and accounting departments. Now let’s see how this technology eases your compliance woes and helps your credit union become entirely connected – and more efficient.Through defined user groups and rights, ECM ensures only appropriate users have access to information. So you don’t have to worry about employees accessing their coworkers’ financial records at your credit union. This increases document security without limiting access.But that’s just the beginning; here are three more ways how ECM can be used as a compliance tool:AuditabilityEvery time a user accesses, views, edits or acts on a document, ECM automatically records the action. It automatically creates audit logs that managers can easily view. These logs are even available to external auditors to save you billable hours and resources.So you don’t need to spend time preparing for audits. No more dusty files to search through.Instead, by electronically capturing all documents and records, you can simply give auditors limited access to your ECM solution. You let auditors search for and find what they need themselves.Records management and retentionComplementing auditability is ECM’s records management, giving you the ability to control and set retention schedules for documentation. That helps with audits or future audits that will happen, making sure you can give auditors easy access to necessary documents while automatically purging documents that should be destroyed.Regardless of what state your organization is located in or what the U.S. government requirements are, or just different individual institutional requirements, you are able to set the proper retention requirements for your documents.To me, that goes hand-in-hand with audit trails. Not only does this combination make preparation for audits easy, it gives you the ability to proactively comply with evolving regulations.TransparencyToday’s credit unions are looking for technology solutions that bring transparency to their business and transactions.With ECM, you can set workflow notifications that automatically inform employees when a document is due for an update or whether it no longer complies with a specific regulation.Or, if it is missing information, you can set up notifications so they are automatically emailed to the employees at your credit union. Not only does this ensure that you’re meeting compliance regulations, but you also don’t have to worry about any potential fines.ECM really helps credit unions stay ahead of any impending regulations ensuring that your employees are up-to-speed, as well as making sure that your systems are secure, auditable, traceable and flexible enough to adapt to whatever changes are heading down the regulatory road.There you go. Three ways to crush compliance concerns.Are you crushing them? Or are they crushing you?In the next part of this series, we’ll take a look at how branches can embrace ECM and be part of your connected credit union. 33SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Michelle Harbinak Shapiro Michelle Shapiro has more than a 15 years of experience in the banking industry to her role as Financial Services Industry Expert at Hyland Software.

first_imgSo how many new harsh environment rigs does the world need?If demand for new and efficient rigs in harsh environment areas rises and if oil companies’ preferences for new rigs continues – both of which we believe to be true – the market will need more rigs.After contract awards to the Deepsea Nordkapp and West Mira, there are still six newbuild rigs which could potentially work in Norway, the United Kingdom, and Canada.But at least another six rigs will become non-competitive by 2020 in addition to the 15 which are already considered to be out of the competitive drilling market. So the market will absorb the current newbuilds without affecting real supply.While supply stagnates, we estimate that Norway, the UK, and Canada will hit 43 rigs, up by ten from around 33 (plus two committed) rigs today and leading to a shortfall of five rigs. To maintain 85% utilization, we would need a further eight rigs on top of that.So up to 13 newbuilds could enter the market over the next three years (in addition to the six existing and uncontracted newbuilds) and we’d still have 85% utilization.Oil companies, who’ve proudly touted their offshore drilling cost-cutting efforts in the North Sea, may be about to discover that costs are going up again. Without more harsh environment semisubs, oil companies will experience a major cost disruption if utilization reaches above-normal levels.In the meantime, as more longer-term contract requirements materialize and newer rigs continue to be preferred for efficiency reasons, dayrates will more toward $400,000 for longer programs.Offshore Energy Today has shared the article above with permission from the author. You can read the original post at Bassoe.noThe views and opinions expressed in this article are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of Offshore Energy Today. Norway has nearly closed the door on old rigs, the UK to followBassoe Analytics shows that virtually all working semisubs in Norway are committed through 2019. There are gaps here and there, but contract extensions and new awards are likely to keep these rigs working well into the next decade.If you look at the age of the 15 rigs working in the country, only two were built before 2000.The Transocean Arctic and the Deepsea Bergen, built in the 1980s, are committed at least up until 2020, but, apart from these, the rest of the earlier generation rigs are cold stacked and unlikely to return to service in Norway other than for plug and abandonment or workover projects.Modern rigs are clearly preferred today, and that trend will continue. Equinor, already with some of the highest environmental and efficiency standards, says that their policies will only become more stringent as they remain steadfast in using the most sustainable and effective rigs in the fleet.The United Kingdom has 13 semisubs on contract, and ten of them were built before 2000. There’s a limit for how long this situation can last.Over the next few years, we expect the market in the UK to develop in much of the same way that Norway has. Older rigs, as they roll off contract and near their special survey due dates, will one by one become relegated to low-tech work or sent to scrapyards. New-rig availability is low, reactivation and upgrades of older rigs unlikelyLooking at the fleet of new available rigs, there isn’t much to offer. Three rigs have future commitments (including newbuilds West Mira and Deepsea Nordkapp). That leaves ten new or under construction semisubs to fill the coming gap in supply of rigs as older ones are phased out.And as eight of the ten available new rigs are Norway-compliant (and able to command higher dayrates), the momentum in dayrates for harsh environment rigs will build.You could argue that the future rig supply gap could entice owners to attempt to reactivate and upgrade their old rigs. The Stena Don, for example, will undergo extensive upgrade work at Damen Verolme this year, but it was delivered in 2001 and is a far more logical upgrade candidate than those built in the 1980s (which account for most of the supply of old rigs).At the same time, Ocean Rig announced earlier this year their intention to raise equity to reactivate the Eirik Raude (built in 2002) for over $100 million. This deal failed, and it was likely investors’ reluctance to put high-risk money into an old rig that killed it.center_img Transocean Barents; Photo by: Fiver; Source: Wikimedia – under the CC BY-SA 4.0 license (The image is cropped)By: David Carter Shinn, Bassoe OffshoreThere just aren’t enough new rigs to meet long-term drilling requirements in the North Sea and Canada. More newbuilds are coming.Harsh environment semisub dayrates hit their lowest point in recent history about two years ago, but they’ve been creeping up ever since.While better planning, prudent project cost management, and general organizational and technical efficiencies have allowed oil companies to save big money exploring and developing North Sea fields, most of the savings has come from being able to contract cheap offshore drilling rigs.Rigs were cheap not only because of a high availability rate, but also because oil companies sanctioned shorter drilling projects – rig owners normally don’t lock their rigs in at low rates for long-term contracts.Out of 24 semisub contract fixtures in 2018, only one (the Deepsea Nordkapp’s two-year contract with Aker BP at $325,000 per day) has a duration of two years or more. Average new-contract durations in 2018 are running at just over 200 days.Now, the need for new investments and longer drilling projects is expected to pressure oil companies into contracting rigs for multi-year programs. And these programs will require new, efficient rigs, with energy-saving features to lower carbon emissions.The problem is that, as things stand today, there won’t be enough of these rigs around.This impending lack of new rig supply is what’s driving owners like Awilco to build new, specialized semisubs for midwater operations in the North Sea. Other rig owners are likely to follow with newbuild orders over the next six months, but will enough of them be built?last_img read more

NewsRegional WARNER RETURNS: Suspended FIFA vice president insists he did no wrong by: – June 3, 2011 PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, CMC – The suspended vice president of the football’s world governing body, FIFA,  Austin Jack Warner returned home Thursday night insisting that he has no plans to step down as a government minister, while blasting critics, including ministerial colleagues, over his ongoing battle to clear his name over allegations of bribery.FIFA on Sunday suspended Warner while its Ethics Committee conducts an investigation in allegations that he and former presidential candidate Mohamed Bin Hammam and two Caribbean Football Union (CFU) officials were involved in offering US$40,000 to national associations of the Caribbean Football union (CFU) at a meeting on May 10 and 11 here, in return for their votes in the FIFA presidential election last Wednesday.But Warner, who is also the Minister of Works and Transport in the Trinidad and Tobago, and has received a public endorsement of support from Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissessar, told reporters that he has no intention of stepping down as a government minister and that the allegations made against him “was much bigger than Jack Warner” but against the entire Caribbean football federation.“I will give everything I have to uphold the Caribbean,” Warner said.“I truly am thankful for the support of the Prime Minister. Within 24 hours I got a letter of support from the Prime Minister indicating her support. I want to formally thank her,” Warner said adding that he understood his critics call. “I understand my critics. I would have preferred that if their criticism was not motivated by blood lust or malice. They are smelling blood and I say I understand this but I do not accept this,” he said.Warner expressed disappointment that Legal Affairs Minister Prakash Ramadhar, who is also seeking the leadership of the Congress of the People (COP) party, had publicly called on him to step down pending the outcome of the probe.The COP is the second biggest partner in the five-member People’s Partnership coalition government here.“My disappointment was Prakash Ramadhar, as a lawyer he should know better and he and I were good friends until now,” Warner said, adding that he would not be used for “political mileage”.“How can you be a political leader? This for me is nonsense. I am heartened by the stand that Anil (Sports Minister and COP member) took, I’m totally disappointed in Prakash Ramadhar… But if he believes this will help him, I wish him well,” Warner said.He said if he had to step down, he would of his own accord and he did not need to be prompted to do so.Warner stressed that people should not cast judgments too early.“I know people want blood, they want Jack Warner but let us not be too hasty,” he said.Warner, who was greeted by several government ministers and supporters, some armed with placards reading “We support Jack Warner” said “I must maintain I did no wrong”.last_img read more

Setien’s appointment was announced on Monday, giving him a full week to work with his players before their first match. “The first week’s gone well,” Setien told a press conference. “Much better than I expected. When you come to a new team there’s always uncertainty about how they’re going to respond. There’s always a stimulus from the players, you see they are very keen because of the change.

It is a challenge of maximum difficulty – we know the statistics and we want to turn it around,” he said Azeez who was in action for 85 minutes in the team’s Copa del Rey clash leading to Sunday’s league match, ironically got a yellow cards in the match as well as the league tie against Mallorca preceding it.

Simmons, named during the game as the NBA’s Eastern Conference player of the week, did it all in a dominant performance for a 76ers team trying to keep their playoff push on track despite the absence of injured big man Joel Embiid. The Aussie star connected on 12 of 14 from the field in his fifth straight game with 20 or more points, achieving his fourth triple-double – posting double figures in three key statistical categories – of the season. For good measure, he added five steals and two blocked shots. “Ben was ridiculously dominant tonight,” 76ers coach Brett Brown said. “He was just multi-skilled, used all over the place in multiple positions, ball-handler, screen setter, post target. He was incredible.” Spencer Dinwiddie scored 22 points for the Nets, who led by 10 in the third quarter but dropped their fourth straight.
