This past weekend, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead made their highly awaited return to The Capitol Theater, NY for a two-night run at the historic venue, and their first shows in Port Chester since their 2016-2017 New Year’s run. As is usual in the New York market (and in most other markets, to boot), the performances sold out at lightning speed, and the band returned the favors by bringing their own electric musicianship and improvisation to one of the late Jerry Garcia‘s favorite venues.

Between their spring and summer tours in 1997, Phish claimed that they wrote over 15 songs that were ready to rock. The band clearly lived up to their promise, kicking off a European tour by debuting nine songs on the first day, six on the second, and one more on the third.Among these new songs were some gems that would appear in setlists for many years to follow. On that first night alone, fans witnessed the debuts of “Ghost,” “Limb By Limb”, “Dogs Stole Things”, “Wading In The Velvet Sea”, “Water In The Sky”, “Vultures”, and “Olivia’s Pool”, as well as the Phish debuts of Sly and the Family Stone’s “Stand!” and Jimi Hendrix’s “Izabella”.The evolution of these musical gems has been notable. A song like “Ghost” has gone through many iterations through its history, while the Page McConnell-led “Wading In The Velvet Sea” sounds much like its debut version.There’s really only way to experience these debut Phish performances; listen to the full audio from the 6/13/97 show from Dublin, below.Setlist: Phish | The S.F.X.

HONOLULU (AP) — A U.S. Army soldier has been charged with murder after his wife was found dead at Hawaii’s Schofield Barracks. Raul Hernandez Perez, an Army specialist from Florida, was charged in the killing of 25-year-old Selena Roth. Hawaii News Now reported that Roth was found dead in a trash can on Jan. 13 after concerned family members requested a welfare check. Roth and Hernandez Perez had filed for divorce in October. The Army says a trial date has not yet been set. Hernandez Perez did not respond to a request for comment by the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.
Boy, oh boy, is summer heating up. The Northeast is melting, the Midwest is sweltering, and the Southwest may as well be inside an oven. Things are not quite that bad in our neck of the woods, but the heat and humidity are definitely taking their toll, not only on our sweat soaked shirts, but also on our collective psyche. Oppressive summer warmth tends to boil the brains of the living into an irrational, easily irritated soup of bad vibes. If there ever actually is a zombie apocalypse, I’m betting it will be caused not by a virus, but by an increasing heat index (or, if you wanted to extend the thought: GLOBAL WARMING CAUSES ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE!). But I digress.The only way to stop the coming brain-eating day of reckoning is to cool off, literally. It’s time to grab the kids, your honey, your dog, and head for the high country and all the crisp, refreshing, natural swimming holes they offer. The best way to access the best, and coldest, swimming holes is the Blue Ridge Parkway, because more elevation means cooler water. One of our favorites off the BRP in North Carolina is at milepost 417 and the Looking Glass Overlook: Skinny Dip Falls.There is a lot to love about Skinny Dip Falls: it’s easily accessed via a short hike, the water is always ice cold – even in July and August, and there is a great rock to jump off. Despite its name, Skinny Dip Falls is no nudist sanctuary, so keep those drawers on until you get home. You may only be able to stay in the chilly water for a few minutes, but it will be worth it: think about how many brains you will save from getting eaten.Directions to Skinny Dip Falls:The short half-mile trail to the falls is directly across the Blue Ridge Parkway from the Looking Glass Overlook at milepost 417. Follow the obvious trail until you hit the Mountains-to-Sea Trail and take a left to the falls.View Larger Map
A very different command and control structure was used at the 2012 Rio+20 Conference, and at the 2011 Military World Games, both very successful. During the unbelievable incident, escorts on motorcycles were confused about the itinerary and Federal Police officers stepped out of their vehicles, in an attempt to prevent access to the pope. The images were transmitted live to the world and caused great apprehension because of the danger that the sovereign pontiff was exposed to, and the possibility of an attack. By Dialogo July 26, 2013 The motivation, which was probably political-ideologically driven, was articulated between the ministries of Defense and Justice, against the recommendations of the Armed Forces Joint Staff. The lack of consensus between both responsible agencies, during the evaluation of errors, clearly shows the absence of unity of command in managing the process. This serious vulnerability was the result of a lack in coordination between the Extraordinary Security Department for Large Events (from the Ministry of Justice) and the Transportation Department of the City of Rio de Janeiro. This experimental and unprecedented structure tends to present problems in the coordination, control, synchronization matrix, and in the circumvention of terrorist threats (reactively, counter-terrorism and proactively, anti-terrorism). The lack of unity of command most likely led to a disregard of the performance study of the scenario promoted by the Brazilian Intelligence Agency (ABIN), most of all, considering the instability in the city since the Confederations Cup, in which riots caused by unsatisfied crowds who have been trying to take advantage of the visibility of large events to obtain public attention for their demands and to erode the government of the state of Rio de Janeiro. During the pope’s visit to Rio de Janeiro, the entire convoy was kept for more than 35 extra minutes on a busy street, in downtown. It is clear that for the 2014 World Cup it will be necessary to return to the systematically adopted method used in previous events, such as the London Olympic Games and the Rio+20 Conference.
By Eduardo Szklarz/Diálogo July 02, 2020 The Brazilian Federal Police (PF, in Portuguese) has increased operations against narcotrafficking in different parts of Brazil in the last few weeks. On May 19, the PF launched Operation Alias to dismantle a criminal organization that specializes in international drug trafficking.The organization operated from Guajará-Mirim city, Rondônia state, on the border with Bolivia, and had a divided and structured chain of command. Their members smuggled drugs from Bolivia and Peru, to then ship them to other Brazilian states. The leader used many fake documents to mislead police operations.Agents served six arrest warrants and four search and seizure warrants in four cities of the northern and northeastern regions. One of the suspects is on the run in Peru.“Members of the criminal group would receive drugs from Bolivian and Peruvian suppliers, hide them in trucks and cars, and ship them to consumer centers,” the PF said in a statement. Thanks to the investigations, police officers were able to prevent four shipments of cocaine hydrochloride, seizing about 150 kilograms in total.The individuals arrested gave statements at police stations and were sent to state prisons. “They will be indicted for transnational drug trafficking, racketeering, and money laundering,” the PF informed.Joint operationOn May 19, Federal Police and Paraná Civil Police officers seized about 800 kg of marijuana as part of Operation Horus. While patrolling Lake Itaipu, police officers saw a boat from Paraguay crossing over to the Brazilian side. As they approached it, the skipper took off and abandoned the boat in a clandestine region of Porto Britânia, the PF indicated.During the searches, police officers confirmed that the boat carried what seemed to be marijuana. “They also found a white pickup truck, partially loaded with the same substance found inside the boat,” the PF said. “Local searches did not lead to the individuals responsible for the boat or the car.”Authorities seized a total of 770 kg of marijuana and sent it to the Federal Police Station in Foz do Iguazu, in the Tri-border region, along with the boat and the pickup truck.Two arrested for drug traffickingOn May 16, the PF arrested two individuals aboard an airplane with more than 130 kg of illicit drugs, at the Flores Airport, in Manaus, Amazonas state. Agents found 125 packets with 56 kg of cocaine and 74 kg of skunk weed (selectively bred cannabis strains) on the airplane. The airplane had flown in from the city of Tabatinga, also in Amazonas state.Authorities took the occupants of the aircraft and their luggage to the Amazonas Federal Police Regional Office. “Both men — the pilot, 32, and the passenger, 21 — were arrested and charged with transnational drug trafficking and racketeering,” the PF said.
Happy Monday and National Nap Day, Compliance Friends!Before you commence post-daylight savings napping, join me for a compliance blog.A few months ago, I wrote a riveting blog about disclosing lender credits on the loan estimate. I explained that credit unions are not permitted to decrease the amount of general or specific lender credits, even if the closing costs decrease from the estimated amount. That means trying to offer a “no closing costs” loan puts credit unions at risk of having to refund borrowers cash if their estimate of lender credits ended up being higher than needed to cover closing costs.Recently, the CFPB heard our cries for help and released 10 FAQs about lender credits. This blog will discuss a few of the questions from the CFPB’s guidance that closely resemble some of the issues we have seen.“Question 3. Is a creditor required to disclose a closing cost and a related lender credit on the loan estimate if the creditor will absorb the cost?” continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr

The government unveiled on Wednesday a bigger stimulus package worth Rp 677.2 trillion (US$47.6 billion) to anchor the virus-battered economy, the growth of which is expected to fall to a level similar to that of the 1998 Asian financial crisis.The latest budget, which is higher than the Rp 641.17 trillion initially allocated, aims to strengthen the healthcare system, direct more spending toward social protection to boost consumption and provide incentives to rescue Indonesian businesses from bankruptcy and workers from layoffs.Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati said the government had put in place support measures to counter an economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic, adding that the government would again revise the macroeconomic assumption underpinning the state budget to cover for the larger stimulus package. “This is a thorough stimulus package to support people’s purchasing power and businesses,” Sri Mulyani told reporters in a livestreamed news conference. “We are hoping that this stimulus can maintain our economic growth at above zero percent.”The Indonesian economy grew 2.97 percent year-on-year (yoy) in the first quarter, the weakest in 19 years, as household spending and investment growth plunged as the outbreak hit economies around the world.Read also: Experts, activists call for heightened public scrutiny of COVID-19 policies, fundingSri Mulyani said gross domestic product (GDP) growth could be lower than the government’s projection of 2.3 percent this year. In the worst-case scenario, the government expects the economy to contract 0.4 percent. Under the new stimulus budget, the government will provide Rp 87.55 trillion for the healthcare sector, Rp 203.9 trillion to strengthen social safety net programs and Rp 123.46 trillion in incentives for micro, small and medium businesses.As much as Rp 120.6 trillion will be allocated for bigger tax incentives and Rp 97.11 trillion to support ministries and regional administrations, while Rp 44.57 trillion comprises the stimulus for state-owned enterprises (SOEs) and labor-intensive businesses.The government now projects the state budget deficit to reach 6.34 percent of GDP, up from the previous estimation of 6.27 percent. It expects state revenue to reach Rp 1.4 quadrillion this year, while state spending is projected to increase by Rp 124.5 trillion to Rp 2.74 quadrillion.“We will treat the widening budget deficit carefully in terms of sustainability and financing,” Sri Mulyani pledged. “We will look for financing sources with the lowest risk and costs.”Read also: Indonesia may lose market confidence due to mounting debts: World BankBank Indonesia Governor Perry Warjiyo pledged during the same briefing to continue buying government bonds in the primary market as the last resort and non-competitive bidder to help finance the government’s budget. The central bank has bought around Rp 26 trillion worth of bonds directly through auctions.“Close coordination between the Finance Ministry and the central bank in budget financing has fueled confidence among market players,” Perry told reporters. “With growing market optimism, we expect that the needs of our bond buying program will be small.“Bank Indonesia is also ready to minimize the government’s interest rate burden to support economic recovery if needed.”BI has injected a total of Rp 583.5 trillion since the beginning of the year to carry out monetary operations to stabilize the financial market and boost bank liquidity, among other purposes.World Bank senior economist for Indonesia Ralph van Doorn called on the Indonesian government to take steps to maintain market confidence as debt mounts amid the outbreak.“The government must [provide assurances over its] fiscal strategy to raise revenues back to at least the 2018 level to flatten the debt curve,” Van Doorn said recently.Read also: Explainer: Indonesia to finance coronavirus battle mostly through debtIt should unwind “exceptional measures” taken to battle the pandemic after the virus threat subsides, including by reinstating the deficit ceiling of 3 percent and ending Bank Indonesia’s partial financing of the deficit, he said.Indonesia’s debt-to-GDP ratio would rise to 37 percent this year, from 29.8 percent at the end of last year, van Doorn projected.Center of Reform on Economics (CORE) Indonesia economist Piter Abdullah, meanwhile, lauded the government’s move.”Although it may not be enough, the move signals that the government is flexible about adjusting the stimulus,” Piter told The Jakarta Post on Wednesday. “This would boost market confidence and help strengthen the rupiah exchange rate.”Topics :
