PREMIERE: saQi Releases Melodic, Laidback Mix For The Human Experience’s ‘Slow Down’ Series

first_imgOver the past year, DJ and producer David Block (better known as The Human Experience) has brought together an innovative collection of artists and musicians—including visual artists Android Jones and David Hale and producers Random Rab, Bluetech, and more—under the banner “Slow Down,” with, as he notes, the intention to nurture “our greatest human resource—creativity . . . [and] to inspire others to unlock their creative potential.” At the end of June last year, Block released a mix honoring this collective, and in the months since, producers like Random Rab, Bluetech, CloZee, and Hakou have all created their own mixes for the Slow Down series. Today, the genre-defying producer saQi has released his own mix to join the others within the Slow Down mix series.In the electronic music world, saQi has become known for his distinct sound, which combines tastes of blues, soul, funk, latin, hip-hop, dub, jazz, downtempo, and more. With his name coming from the Sufi title for “a mystic muse,” the producer creates deep and sophisticated tracks that still translate well to an energized live setting. Much like the purpose of the Slow Down collective, saQi consistently pushes the boundaries of his craft, having performed shows with the accompaniment of live musicians, vocalists, and dancers in addition to countless more traditional DJ sets. As saQi has noted about these collaborations, “I created the project as means to collaborate with and feature my fellow artists. I love to play music with other people and share the experience with the crowd. The project is not about me, it’s about connecting with other people through music.”With a new release due out on November 10th via The Polish Ambassador’s record label, Jumpsuit Records, saQi is part of a community of beloved progressive artists, many of whom were born and bred on the West Coast, that have carved a niche for themselves within the live music scene. In addition to The Polish Ambassador himself, the producer has previously played with the likes March Fourth Marching Band, Beats Antique, Emancipator, Russ Liquid, edIT, Rising Appalachia, The Everyone Orchestra, and more, and has performed internationally as well as at premier festivals like Coachella, Lightning in a Bottle, Symbiosis, Envision, Burning Man, and more.You can take a listen to saQi’s mix for the Slow Down series below. As the artists said about the mix, “I’m very excited to put this new mix out on the Slow Down series. With all the pressure to keep the dancefloors moving it’s nice to take a moment to sit with some of my slower more melodic music. I hope the mix encourages people in some way to slow down a bit and appreciate the moment. Enjoy.” saQi Upcoming 2017 Tour Dates9-28 – Jumpsuit Family Gathering – Taos, NM10-14 – 1015 Folsom – San Francisco, CA10-30 – Boulder Theater – Boulder, CO1-26 – Gem and Jam Festival – Tucson, AZlast_img read more

Workload panel calls for no major changes

Workload panel calls for no major changes

first_img February 15, 2001 Gary Blankenship Senior Editor Regular News Workload panel calls for no major changes Workload panel calls for no major changes Senior Editor The Florida Supreme Court doesn’t need any more justices, nor does there need to be a separate supreme court to handle criminal appeals, according to a legislatively-created commission studying the court’s caseload. But the court should consider extending the term of the chief justice, and the legislature should look at requiring a higher juror consensus to impose the death penalty. The Supreme Court Workload Study Commission, winding up its work at a January 29 meeting in Tallahassee, also rejected a proposal that would have minor Bar grievances handled by a Supreme Court-appointed commission of selected judges rather than the court itself. That 5-4 vote was the closest issue decided by the panel, which plans one more meeting to polish its final report before submitting it to the legislature. Bar President Herman Russomanno commended the panel on behalf of the state’s lawyers for “outstanding work” in its efforts to improve the administration of justice in Florida and urged the legislature to accept the recomendations. “It was evident that the commission worked diligently to gather all the evidence and take testimony from all interested parties on a wide range of issues pertaining to the Florida Supreme Court,” Russomanno said. “The distinguished members of this commission and the dedicated staff members of the Senate and House assigned to this commission worked extremely hard to provide a timely report to the legislature before the beginning of this session.” The commission was formed last year by the legislature after it considered but did not act on proposals to increase the court from seven to nine justices and to have the governor select the chief justice for a six-year term. Currently the court rotates the chief justice post to the most senior member who has not served as chief justice for a two-year term. The commission quickly dealt with expanding the size of the court, voting unanimously to keep it at seven members. “We’ve heard all the testimony and I haven’t heard but one who thinks it is a good idea and everyone else thinks it’s a horrible idea,” said commission member and former Bar President John Frost. But the issue of a separate court of last resort to handle all criminal appeals produced extensive discussion. “We as a state are pushing 16 million people,” said commission member Bruce O’Donoghue, president of an Orlando traffic engineering company and who moved to recommend the separate court. “I think the fact is criminal cases are slowing the process down and they’re not going to decrease, and I think that people in this state want things to move as expeditiously as possible.” Commission member and state Rep. J. Dudley Goodlette amended the motion to have the commission recommend that the legislature consider a separate criminal court as part of any other Article V amendments. He did not specify the number of judges who would be on the new court, but said he would prefer to have five rather than seven, and that with a separate criminal court, the number of Supreme Court justices could be reduced to five. “I believe there is a workload problem and I think we need to be creative in addressing how we resolve some of those workload problems,” he said. “I don’t believe business as usual is the right answer.” Commission Chair Stephen Grimes, a former Supreme Court justice and district court of appeal judge, said a separate criminal court of appeals might be needed in the future, but isn’t necessary now. He noted the recent tension between the Supreme Court and lawmakers, adding, “I think to suggest that the legislature should study it further, they would go ahead and do it [create the new court].” For now, Grimes said the Supreme Court has taken steps to meet rising workloads, including identifying and quickly handling “tag” cases the name given when several cases come to the court raising the same legal issue. Tag cases have been identified as a culprit for causing some recent delays in rulings, and court officials told the commission how the court is moving to identify tag cases, decide the leading case of the group and then quickly apply that to the other related cases. Frost agreed with Grimes: “We’re saying we think by giving additional staff and additional resources we can deal with this. I don’t see a crisis. If we put anything in the report that even hints at a criminal court, it’s going to go on the fast track [at the legislature].” The commission rejected the O’Donoghue-Goodlette motion by a 6-3 vote, with Palm Beach Gardens lawyer Ralph Fisch joining the two movers. On the term of the chief justice, commission members agreed it was best to leave the choice with the court. But they also said the choice should be based on administrative abilities and the court should consider a three-year term, with the possibility of reelection, to allow a chief justice more time to accomplish his or her goals. “The incoming chief justice requires six months to a year before he can make changes he would like to see in the court, and there would be very little time left for these changes to produce meaningful results,” said Fisch, who moved to extend the term from two to three years. Grimes said outsiders generally think the chief justice has more power than he or she actually has. “Internally, if the majority of the court doesn’t agree with the chief justice, the chief justice can’t really take the positions he or she might like to take. The chief justice can’t put in a totally new system — he can do a little tinkering,” he said. “It [a longer term] would have some merit in dealing with the legislature because you would have a little more rapport and understanding.” That proposal passed unanimously. On jury recommendations for the death penalty, commission member and Third District Court of Appeal Judge Robert Shevin moved that the commission recommend that the legislature require at least a 9-3 jury vote or higher before a judge could impose a death penalty. He noted that three states the commission heard testimony from Texas, Oklahoma and Washington each require a unanimous jury before the death penalty can be imposed. (Florida requires a unanimous jury on guilt, but only seven of the 12 need to recommend death. Technically, a judge can impose a death sentence if a jury recommends life without parole, but most of those sentences are overturned on appeal.) Shevin said there is at least some evidence that death cases that had a 7-5 or 8-4 jury recommendation are more likely to be overturned on appeal. “I think it would, number one, bring to the table those cases that are really death penalty-deserved cases and, number two, significantly help the workload of the Supreme Court,” he said. But other commission members questioned how much such a change would help and how many fewer cases would actually reach the court. The commission voted 6-3 to reject Shevin’s motion and then unanimously approved a motion by Frost to tell the legislature the commission believes requiring a super majority vote would reduce the court’s workload and lawmakers should further study that issue. The commission did vote unanimously to recommend that the legislature act to statutorily bar judges from imposing the death penalty when the jury recommends life. That rarely happens now and commissioners said the law should reflect that practice. On Bar grievance cases, the commission reviewed a letter from former Justice Ben Overton advocating a Supreme Court-appointed commission of five current or retired judges to handle Bar grievance cases where the penalty is a 90-day suspension or less. More serious cases would still go to the court. Grimes endorsed the suggestion, estimating that the court spends about five percent of its time on Bar grievances, about half of that on cases involving 90-day suspensions or less serious sanctions. “I can recall a number of times spending considerable time debating whether to have a 30-day suspension or a 60-day suspension,” he said. But Frost argued the court already has the authority to enact such a change and would do so if grievances were a significant problem. He also noted that the current justices told the commission handling Bar grievances was not a problem. “It’s very important that the public understand that the highest court in this state does lawyer discipline. They are the ones that deal with lawyers,” Frost said. “If you spread it out to DCAs or other courts, you’re going to lose some of that credibility.” Frost, Shevin, Goodlette and commissioner members Jerry Gardner and Scott Bates voted for the motion to recommend no change. Grimes, O’Donoghue, Fisch and commission member Abraham Fischler, a former public member of the Bar Board of Governors, voted against the motion. On other issues, the commission voted: • To support the Supreme Court’s request for more staff and improved technology to help it continue to improve its case management, particularly on death penalty and tag cases. Supreme Court Clerk Tom Hall told the commission the court this year has requested four new employees for his office and two more for the court’s central attorney staff. • To recommend the Supreme Court continue work to reduce backlog caused by tag cases. Commission members decided not to make specific recommendations, but noted that some cases could be held at DCAs while lead cases are decided by the justices. • That the legislature should provide more clerks for trial judges who handle death penalty cases to help reduce errors and hence appeals to the Supreme Court. • Not to recommend that trial judges hold hearings prior to trial to determine whether the death penalty should be sought in a case. “I think the state attorney has to make the ultimate determination on whether it’s a death case or not a death case,” Shevin said. As the commission wrapped up its work and prepared to adjourn, commissioners agreed the final report should reflect an observation made by Fisch: “The consensus of all the witnesses who testified is that the basic problem at the Supreme Court is case management and the legislature should be encouraged to continue its assistance in technology and by increasing staff.”last_img read more

What is the impact of the NCUA’s risk-based capital rule?

What is the impact of the NCUA’s risk-based capital rule?

first_imgLast month, the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) approved the long-awaited final rule on risk-based capital requirements for credit unions. The rule aims to reduce the possibility of high-risk credit unions exhausting their capital and causing systemic losses, which all federally insured credit unions would have to cover for through the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF).According to Debbie Matz, NCUA Board Chairman, the new rule fulfills the NCUA’s obligations under the Federal Credit Union Act and targets high-risk, outlier credit unions that have the potential to contribute substantial losses to the NCUSIF. “The Federal Credit Union Act requires NCUA to update its risk-based capital standards to be comparable with the federal banking agencies,” Matz added.The rule applies only to federally-insured, natural-person credit unions with more than $100 million in assets. This means that more than three-quarters of the nation’s credit unions are exempt from the rule. To match risk-based capital rule implementations of other federal banking agencies, the NCUA rule will become effective on January 1, 2019.If the rule were to become effective today, only 16 of the 1,489 credit unions impacted by the rule would fall into a lower capital category, according to Matz. Prior to the effective date, those 16 credit unions will need to reduce the risk on their balance sheets, raise capital to cover the risks or employ some combination of reducing risk and raising capital. continue reading » 5SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

‘Hidden’ defaults set to soar as recession squeezes firms

‘Hidden’ defaults set to soar as recession squeezes firms

first_imgIn the practice, borrowers offer creditors new or restructured debt securities in exchange for the ones they hold. Companies can also offer cash to buy back notes at a substantial discount to the principal. In sum, the packages amount to less than what the firms originally owed.Distressed exchanges can be acrimonious at times, as was the case for Chinese firm Asia Aluminum Holdings Ltd., where bondholders formed a group to oppose a buyback proposal in 2009, as they felt it was too low. The company eventually canceled the bond buyback and liquidators were appointed.Investors may agree to distressed exchanges for a variety of reasons: they might believe the borrower just needs time to turn things around, or they may feel they would lose more if the company were immediately pushed into liquidation.In some instances, investors even initiate the discussion with the company to buy back bonds as they are keen to liquidate their holdings and can’t find other buyers, according to Xavier Jean, senior director for corporate ratings at S&P Global Ratings.While the exchange price may be higher than the current market price, it is important for investors to look beyond short-term mark-to-market gains as they don’t get their principal back, according to Raymond Chia, head of credit research for Asia-excluding Japan at Schroder Investment Management.The winner in distressed exchanges is “always the company” and the loser is the investor, he said. “Distressed exchanges often are just ‘bandages’ and the firm eventually goes bankrupt,” said Edward Altman, a professor emeritus at New York University’s Stern School of Business and director of credit and debt market research at the NYU Salomon Center. Altman, who developed a widely used method called the Z-score for predicting business failures, estimates that up to 40 percent of distressed exchanges end in bankruptcy within three years.Winners, LosersThe Covid-19 outbreak and unprecedented lockdowns prompted the International Monetary Fund to predict that the “Great Lockdown” recession would be the steepest in almost a century. If history is any guide, that means there will be a surge in distressed exchanges.There was a spike in such practices during the global financial crisis, and cases have remained high in recent years as borrowers struggled under debt they had piled on in a decade of cheap money. Distressed exchanges as a share of total defaults rose from around 10 percent in the years before 2008 to roughly 40 percent subsequently, according to Moody’s in March. The worst recession since the Great Depression is prompting indebted companies to default, and increasingly more will do so in a way that’s harder for investors to detect.Rating firms predict that more companies will pursue distressed debt exchanges, in which they try to overcome liquidity problems by swapping debt or buying it back at steep discounts. Such moves are less stark than missed payments and can fly under the radar for the general investing public, but often result in losses for creditors and are usually counted as defaults by rating companies.Moody’s Investors Service forecasts an increase in the overall number of distressed exchanges amid the economic downturn stemming from the coronavirus pandemic and low oil prices. Fitch Ratings said the “price dislocation” in high-yield bond markets could lead to a surge in the practice. There have already been a handful of them this year, including Indonesian coal firm Geo Energy Resources Ltd. and Chinese business park developer Yida China Holdings Ltd.center_img Topics :last_img read more

COVID tests completed as Tour de France holds its breath

COVID tests completed as Tour de France holds its breath

first_img‘Living with the virus’ Tour de France director Christian Prudhomme appealed to fans to mask up and play the game on the roadsides.While the vast majority of spectators along the route have played the game, AFP has witnessed a number of unmasked fans approaching riders on the hillsides and shouting encouragement from close range.”It’s nowhere near as bad as most years,” said British rider Adam Yates who wore the yellow jersey for much of the first week. “For me it was all right.”French rider Julien Alaphilippe has also been impressed that most roadside supporters are fully masked up.”I haven’t been counting but most of people I’ve seen have been wearing a mask,” he said on Monday. “It’s well managed. There are people on the climbs, it’s part of the Tour. If everyone respects the rules and wears a mask, then the Tour can continue.” French Prime Minister Jean Castex, who was present on the Tour on Saturday, insisted it was important for France to see the Tour going ahead. “Living with the virus is the doctrine of the Tour and the government, but everyone must protect themselves and obey the rules so that the Tour can take place,” said Castex said.”What I have seen today in my Pyrenees pleased me.”Roglic, who came second in Sunday’s ninth stage, leads defending champion Ineos leader Egan Bernal by 21 seconds. Egan Bernal, Primoz Roglic and the rest of the peloton has undergone a second wave of COVID-19 swab tests with the samples sent to Paris for analysis, the Tour de France testing center confirmed to AFP on Monday’s rest day.Any team returning two or more positive PCR tests, be they riders, managers, doctors, masseurs or mechanics, risks being excluded from the remainder of the race.The original idea was to ban teams where two riders tested positive but two days ahead of the Grand Depart on August 29, as much of France went on red alert with the pandemic numbers rising, the French government requested that it also include support staff. Each team on this year’s trimmed down Tour was restricted to 30 members, but some arrived with as few as 25.Four members of the Lotto-Soudal team were sent home after two mechanics returned positive tests — the other two were their room-mates.The PCR test involves a famously queasy moment with a Q-tip inserted in each nostril and then twisted.”It’s uncomfortable, but necessary,” Astana’s Colombian captain Miguel Angel Lopez, known as one of the peloton’s toughest guys, told AFP with a smile.”We couldn’t have run all these races without all the precautions that have been put in place to protect us,” said the 26-year-old who was nicknamed ‘Superman’ in his homeland after fighting off three roadside thugs who foolishly tried to steal his bike when he was a teenager. “The final team has now been tested and these tests have now been sent to a laboratory in Paris for analysis,” a member of staff at the center told AFP.”The results will first be communicated to the team doctors, who must then pass those results on to the International Cycling Union.”They in turn will inform the Tour organizers,” the official said.The results will be announced officially on Tuesday morning ahead of stage 10, although teams may leak those results ahead of time.

Fugro to Help Improve Coastal Resilience in Tuvalu

Fugro to Help Improve Coastal Resilience in Tuvalu

first_imgFugro has been awarded a contract by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) to survey the Polynesian island country of Tuvalu.Located in the Pacific Ocean, Tuvalu is the world’s fourth smallest nation with a population of around 11,000 and a total land area of 26 km2. The country is remote and, with low lying islands, is one of the most vulnerable to the effects of climate change.The survey, to be conducted in 2019, will utilize Fugro’s airborne lidar bathymetry (ALB) technology, providing accurate national coverage of shallow (0 – 50 m), nearshore and lagoon bathymetry and island topography.The survey data will primarily support the Tuvalu Coastal Adaptation Project’s island vulnerability assessment work and will also feed into a very broad spectrum of vulnerability, adaptation, infrastructure development, natural resource management and environmental monitoring needs.“Tuvalu’s remoteness and susceptibility to the effects of sea level rise and tropical storms will benefit from Fugro’s advanced technology for mapping shallow water environments safely and cost-effectively. Our surveys will provide the baseline data necessary to plan adaptation and resilience responses,” commented Paul Seaton, Fugro’s Director for Business Development and Government Relations for Asia Pacific.The provision of this data is widely seen as an extraordinary step towards improved planning, understanding resources and assessing national vulnerability. Important services, such as navigation in shallow waters, will also be greatly enhanced and the baseline data will be of key interest to development partners and local authorities.last_img read more
