All Systems Go for the 62nd Annual Night in Venice

first_imgIf the calendar reads mid-July, that means Night in Venice plans are heating up in Ocean City.The annual boat parade, one of the most eagerly-anticipated events of the summer season, takes place in its 62nd annual edition this Saturday, July 16th. And why wouldn’t it be anticipated? Where else can you join thousands of spectators and watch as dozens of decorated boats make their way along the route from the Longport Bridge along the back bays to Tennessee Avenue?This year’s official theme of “Destination America” encourages entrants to represent the great cities and regions of the United States. But participants may also express themselves with a theme of their own choosing. That leaves the door open to irreverent, humorous and downright wacky entries guaranteed to delight and entertain the spectators. In addition to the many great viewing locations along the route, thousands more will attend private parties at bay front homes decorated for the occasion.“Forrest Gump” on the Keeper took second place in the Comic Division for big boats. Credit: Jim SchultzThe all-important weather forecast looked promising: sunny all day Saturday with an afternoon shower clearing in time for the 6:30 pm start and the temperature dropping to a comfortable 75 degrees with a low of 72 by event’s end.Boat parade award categories include Most Original, Best Decorated, Musical, Comic, Classic (for older boats) and Children’s Division for boats decorated by kids 15 and under. Residence awards will be made for decorated houses and decorated condos.The parade’s lineup this year will include members of the Philadelphia Eagles, an a cappella choir from St. Augustine Prep, a tribute to pop icon Elton John, Gina Castanzo, a contestant on the hit television show “The Voice”,This year, for the first time in four decades of Night in Venice events, there will be a fireworks show starting at approximately 9 p.m. The fireworks will be shot off a barge and will be visible along the bay front, according to a City press release.Also new this year will be a Collegiate Cup awarded to the best entrant representation of a college or university, best non-profit organization, and best commercial entity.All entrants in the boat and home divisions will receive a commemorative coffee mug, and all boat entrants also receive a free photo of their boat in action.Grand Marshal for the event is Olympic 5-time medalist and all-around champion at the 2008 Olympiad, Nastia Liukin. Liukin currently is a sports commentator for NBC Sports who will be announcing the 9-gymnastics competitions for the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, later this summer.For more information on Night in Venice, call 609-399-6111 or e-mail event coordinator Michael Hartman at [email protected]last_img read more

Speech: Melanie Hopkins remarks at the Launch of the One Ocean Hub in Fiji

first_imgAnd I am delighted to be back at USP again today to announce this new package of UK assistance. I congratulate you for winning this prestigious grant and hope that this will mark a new high point in Commonwealth partnership on oceans management.Thank you and vinaka vakalevu. To survive and prosper, we need healthy oceans.In the words of Dame Meg Taylor, Secretary General of the Pacific Ocean is at the heart of our cultures and we depend on it for food, income, employment, transport and economic development.I am delighted to be here today to announce an award to the University of the South Pacific of a £1.6 million research grant through the UK’s Research and Innovation’s Global Challenges Fund. This will enable researchers from USP to partner with its One Ocean Hub teams as they work at addressing the urgent challenges of oceans law, science and governance. Last year, of course, we celebrated USP’s 50th anniversary. I was delighted to accompany TRH Duke and Duchess of Sussex to USP where they announced 4 new climate scholarships. In 2016, the British government launched in the Pacific the Commonwealth Marine Economies which enables Pacific SIDS to utilise world-leading expertise in marine science from the United Kingdom. Delighted that some of the scientists are with us today. Vanuatu and the UK are co-chairing the Commonwealth Clean Oceans Alliance action group on marine plastics. United Kingdom has announced a further £10m of funding to support members to tackle the scourge of marine plastics. UK Parliamentary Under – Secretary was in Vanuatu last week for a regional meeting with Pacific counterparts to pledge UK’s willingness to work with the Pacific.center_img Led by researchers from the University of Strathclyde in the UK, one aspect of the research is to support decision making based on evidence of risks and opportunities among competing ocean uses.This research will greatly assist in coral reef management and monitoring invasive marine species management, conservation of threatened and migratory marine species such as sea turtles and whales, waste management and pollution control.Last year the United Kingdom was honoured to host the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting. The need for greater Commonwealth cooperation on both climate and oceans were at the heart of that meeting, including agreement to create a new Commonwealth Blue Charter.So Commonwealth countries coming together to agree new standards on the ocean protection can create real change for the entire planet.For the British government, oceans is the new frontier in our partnership with the Pacific region.Today’s announcement is part of a wider package of cooperation on oceans: USP Vice Chancellor Professor Pal Ahluwalia, distinguished guests, One Ocean Hub teams from the UK, South Africa, West Indies and the Solomon Islands, members of the media, ladies and gentlemen,last_img read more

Spafford Releases Live 53-Minute Improv Studio Session And More [Pro-Shot Video]

first_imgEcho Sessions, Asheville, NC, 10/23/2017 — My Road Echo Sessions, Asheville, NC, 10/23/2017 — Electric Taco Stand[Photo: Patrick Hughes] Spafford took part in an in-studio performance dubbed the Echo Sessions hosted by I Am AVL (Independent Arts and Music Asheville) to support Asheville, North Carolina’s local music scene. I Am AVL’s Echo Sessions are particularly special as they offer artists the option to do whatever they want with their time, with past performances ranging from 45 minutes to a couple of hours. For Spafford’s segment, fans were also invited to tune into a live multi-cam stream of the open-ended performance, which took place in an old church that’s been transformed into a world-class recording facility.Spafford To Play NOLA Halloween Show; Here’s What They’ve Done In The PastThe “Echo Sessions” set proved to be the perfect environment for Spafford to launch into an improvisational musical journey. In recent months, Spafford has become known for these improvisation-oriented explorations, having released the hourlong studio improv album Abaculus this past August. The Echo Sessions also came on the heels of Spafford’s fiery and improv-heavy show in Columbia, Missouri, this past Thursday, during which the band unleashed a massive, 57-minute “Bee Jam” as a part of their three-song first set.To open the performance, Spafford came straight out the gates with a 55-minute improvisational first set that is already earning legendary status. In this near-hourlong jam, the band was truly limitless and without boundaries, proving that they were truly in their element. Across the hour, the band explored many themes, often landing in bliss-filled major key progressions, swampy funk-filled low-end jams, electronic grooves reminiscent of 90’s warehouse parties, and blistering guitar peaks.Spafford Shares Pro-Shot “Ain’t That Wrong” With JJ Grey Jam SandwichWith the stream also providing live video, it was clear that the individual band members were enjoying themselves just as much as listeners. After the first segment wrapped up, listeners could hear Brian Moss (guitar/vox) asking the engineer just how long the group’s non-stop first set had gone on for, clearly having been lost in the jam with the rest of the audience.After a quick set break, Spafford returned with a number of the band’s heavy hitters and a new Andrew “Red” Johnson (keys/vox) original, “My Road (My Road)”, which was debuted for the first time just last week. In true Spafford form, all of the second set’s songs were heavily laced with additional improvisation, showing just how connected the band’s members are to one another in a synchronized musical conversation.Spafford’s “Echo Session”, which was hosted by I Am AVL (Independent Arts and Music Asheville), can be viewed in all of its glory below. See for yourself why this is being hyped as a truly special moment in the band’s history.Setlist: Spafford | Echo Sessions with I Am AVL | Asheville, NC | 10/23/2017Set One: Jam [1]Set Two: Eternity, My Road (My Road), Electric Taco Stand, Backdoor Funk, Weasel, Beautiful Day[1] 55 minutesEcho Sessions, Asheville, NC, 10/23/2017 — Set One (Jam)last_img read more

4 reasons young adults should join a credit union

first_imgWhether learning a language, mastering a sport or gathering gobs of greenbacks, starting young is always a plus. It’s also crucial to get into good habits early, before hard-to-break bad ones are cast in concrete.A perfect example: Start a lifetime of saving and borrowing at a credit union, which may cater to young adults better than a bank can.“A great concern for people just entering the workforce is the stagnant nature of wages and benefits, so it makes sense to look at opportunities to reduce costs and receive higher rewards,” says Marco Pantoja, interim director of the University of Missouri Office for Financial Success in Columbia, Missouri.Here are 4 reasons millennials should consider a credit union.You may get a better deal on a savings account or certificate of deposit. This fall, the average 5-year CD paid 0.85% APY, Bankrate’s survey of banks and thrifts found. Credit unions, on average, paid 1.55% APY, according to the National Association of Federal Credit Unions.It may be cheaper to borrow from a credit union. “When borrowing, one of the major needs for which people use financial institutions, credit unions have lower rates and lower fees,” Pantoja says. continue reading » 97SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

The Jim Blaine Marathon: On mergers, banks, and member owners

first_imgHave credit unions moved from being shepherds to being wolves?  Is there any point to merging two healthy credit unions? Do credit unions really differ from banks? Is member ownership a hoax?Buckle up because Jim Blaine, in a wide ranging marathon interview, took on those topics and plenty more.  He talked freely, passionately about an industry he loves and now it is an industry he worries about.Who better to have such thoughts?  Blaine has to be poster child for credit union leadership excellence in the post war era. At 30 he took over as CEO of the $300 million State Employees’ Credit Union in North Carolina.  That was 1979. Come 2016 and he retired. SECU had grown to $33 billion – and it had 256 branches and 5800 employees. It could – and it did – thumb its nose at neighboring Bank of America and those who have followed Blaine’s career know he has not backed off from rumbles with NCUA, CUNA and others.Blaine starts out by questioning the wave of mergers that is now rocking the world of credit unions. Why not just liquidate the institution and give every member $1000? Blaine says very plainly that there is no good purpose served by these mergers.He added that in his many years at SECU, never once did a member come in and ask, what’s your assets today?  Members do not care. They do care about car loan rates, NSF fees, how long it takes to approve a mortgage app. But they do not care about assets.Blaine, by the way, is not exactly for credit unions liquidating.   In fact he denounces the loss of a few hundred credit union charters yearly where a couple hundred charters evaporate every year. “It’s very, very hard to charter a new credit union,” said Blaine.So why not let a visionary group that wants to open a new credit union buy that charter and fast track the opening process? An endurance race that typically takes many years could be shortened to a matter of months. And the credit union industry would get stronger.What Blaine also is doing in his denouncing of mergers of healthy institutions is highlighting a reality that, typically, those mergers accomplish just about nothing. The resulting institution, a bit bigger, is in fact no more competitive. And there typically are no new efficiencies. Blaine also worries about the loss of local institutions, where in many credit unions nowadays all decisions – including the trivial – get made at corporate HQ.Credit unions, he adds, are in many cases no longer serving local interests – they are serving the institution’s self interest and they also are increasingly given their orders by distant masters as control shifts from local branch managers to corporate policies. In some cases, Blaine insists, a branch manager does not even have the authority to reverse an NSF fee.  That’s sad.It’s also a bleak comment on the vitality of local credit unions.  “Standardization kill creativity,” Blaine pronounces.He also noted, with considerable discontent, that the major credit union trade associations appear to have forgotten the credit union mission to help the working man and working woman prosper in a world populated with financial sharks. In that regard he pointed, for example, at the trades urging CFPB to pull back protections against payday lenders.“That’s the wrong message for credit unions to be sending. It may become life threatening. They do look like banks,” said Blaine.Is there in fact a future for credit unions?Maybe. Maybe not.  Blaine highlights a strategy for keeping credit unions relevant. But he frets that many may not heed the message.As shepherds, Blaine says, credit unions have an obligation to tell members what they need, not what they want – and also not what the institution wants to sell. Maybe what’s best for the member is spending $500 on car repairs rather than $30,000 on a new car. “You have an obligation to a member owner that isn’t their to a bank’s client,” said Blaine.But how many credit unions still see that counsel as their role?“Credit unions are a social movement,” said Blaine.But much of this, said Blaine, is getting lost and he sees that as terrible.Listen up to the full Blaine podcast here. It runs around an hour. 12SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Robert McGarvey A blogger and speaker, Robert McGarvey is a longtime journalist who has covered credit unions extensively, notably for Credit Union Times as well as the New York Times and TheStreet, … Web: www.mcgarvey.net Detailslast_img read more

Bulog seeks approval to import 200,000 tons of sugar ahead of Ramadan

first_imgThe State Logistics Agency (Bulog) is seeking the government’s approval to import 200,000 tons of sugar to stabilize prices during this year’s Ramadan, which will begin in late April.The agency’s director for operations and public services, Tri Wahyudi, said in Jakarta on Wednesday that the sugar price, which had exceeded the government’s current price ceiling, was expected to further increase during the fasting month when food consumption is far higher than on normal days.Imports, he said, were needed in order to increase the supply in the market because the sugarcane in the country could only be harvested after Idul Fitri, a celebration that comes after a full month of fasting. “The sugarcane can be harvested after Idul Fitri. So we propose an import of 200,000 tons. It is sugar for consumption, not raw sugar for industries,” Tri was quoted by Kompas as saying.Tri acknowledged that the agency had received requests from various parties to import sugar because they feared the price increase would continue if Bulog did not increase the supply in the market.”We have submitted our proposal to import sugar to the coordinating economic minister. We need to import to stabilize the price,” he added.At present the sugar price has reached Rp 4,000 per kilogram, exceeding the government’s price ceiling of Rp 12,500 per kilogram.In 2018, Bulog did not import sugar because it had around 400,000 tons of sugar stocks ahead of Ramadan.
