Gov’t Mule Welcomes Jackie Greene, Jimmy Vivino, & More For Road Trip-Themed New Year’s Show At The Beacon [Photos/Videos]

first_imgGov’t Mule w/ Jackie Greene, Shawn Pelton – “Tuesday’s Gone” [Lynyrd Skynyrd cover], “Auld Lang Syne” Haynes and company returned to the stage with Jackie Greene and Shawn Pelton, who would help play through an impressive 20 songs (mostly covers) as part of their Travel Tunes set themed around the Beatnik life of being out on the road. The audience could enjoy the musical journey from the comfort of their padded seats in the beautiful theatre as Gov’t Mule gave fans covers of Deep Purple‘s “Highway Star”; Black Crowes‘ “Wiser Time”; Little Feet‘s “Two Trains”; Lynyrd Skynyrd‘s “Tuesday’s Gone”; and of course, New Year’s anthem “Auld Lang Syne”. The second set continued with more live debuts of road-themed rock anthems including the Grateful Dead‘s “Casey Jones”; The Wailers‘ “Stop That Train”; Tom Petty‘s “Runnin’ Down a Dream”; and a trio of Allman Brothers favorites including “End of the Line”, “Ramblin’ Man”, and “Seven Turns”. You can view a gallery of photos from Gov’t Mule’s New Year’s blowout below via photographer Eric Gettler. You can also watch a selection of clips from the performance via YouTube. The show’s encore continued with the addition of a few more special guests beginning with consecutive drum solos from Mountain drummer Corky Lang, Pelton, and Mule’s Matt Abts. Jimmy Vivino was also invited to once again join in on the fun in helping cover Jeff Beck‘s “Freeway Jam”, Bob Dylan‘s “It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry”, and Charles Segar‘s “Key to the Highway”. The night came to a close with the band once again revisiting the recognizable theme to “Auld Lang Syne”. New York City was the place to be to celebrate the arrival of 2019 on Monday night, with tourists stuffing themselves into a rainy and dreary Times Square and Phish launching their fans into space at Madison Square Garden. Further uptown in Manhattan’s Upper West Side however, Warren Haynes and Gov’t Mule took their own fans for an On The Road-inspired musical journey filled with classic rock covers and special guests throughout their annual New Year’s Eve concert at The Beacon Theatre. The show on Monday was their second at the venue in four days as part of this year’s NYE run, following their performance at The Beacon on Saturday night. The first set of the night featured a 12-song mix of Gov’t Mule originals, although the band began introducing live material fitting for the night’s theme towards the end. The band tore through live renditions of “Brown Down on the Brazos”, “Banks of the Deep End”, Railroad Boy”, and “Bad Little Doggie” to start the night. Some of the highlights from set one included a subtle tease of “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed” by The Allman  Brothers Band during “When the World Gets Small”, as well as their live debut cover of “Hear My Train a Comin’” by Jimi Hendrix. The band would close out set one with a “Blind Man in the Dark” reprise, followed by “Bring On the Music”, with the latter’s title acting as a musical nudge as to what would be following in the second half of the show.

AEP to close 1,300MW unit 1 at Rockport coal plant by 2028

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Power Magazine:A federal judge in Ohio on July 18 approved American Electric Power’s (AEP’s) plan to close Unit 1 of its two-unit, 2,600-MW coal-fired Rockport Plant in Indiana. The modified consent decree approved by the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio on Thursday is the latest chapter in a long-running dispute among AEP, the Sierra Club, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and several states.The Rockport consent agreement has been updated five times since 2007. That’s when AEP reached a deal with states, environmental groups, and the EPA to settle charges that the utility’s expansion of the Rockport plant occurred without the proper permits, and without installing the best available emissions controls, as required by federal law.As part of the court battle, AEP two years ago was ordered to install scrubbers at Rockport’s Unit 2, a move that the utility said would have cost it $1.4 billion. The judge’s ruling today means the utility will not have to make that upgrade.AEP in a news release Thursday said: “American Electric Power today announced that the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio has approved a modified agreement that will accelerate emissions reductions from the company’s remaining coal-fueled power plants in the Midwest, eliminate a requirement to install high-cost emission reduction equipment at the company’s Rockport Plant in Rockport, Indiana, and retire Rockport Plant Unit 1 (1,300 megawatts) by the end of 2028.”Unit 1 at Rockport came online in 1984. Unit 2 entered commercial service in 1989. The plant is located about 35 miles east of Evansville, Indiana, along the Ohio River. Rockport was honored as Large Plant of the Year by the Powder River Basin Coal Users’ Group in 2009.AEP in a news release said it has retired more than 8,600 MW of coal-fired generation since 2011, and it plans to retire another 1,100 MW by the end of 2020. The utility said it has started operation of 724 MW of wind power and battery storage, and plans to add more than 9,100 MW of wind and solar generation by 2030.More: AEP will close 1,300-MW Indiana coal unit AEP to close 1,300MW unit 1 at Rockport coal plant by 2028last_img read more

Letters to the Editor for Sunday, Jan. 19

first_imgUnion sports focuses on more than scoresIn our society, wins and losses are the norm in evaluating athletic performance.However, I gained a much deeper appreciation for Union College sports programs recently at an event hosted by men’s hockey coach Rick Bennett, women’s coach Josh Sciba and Athletic Director Jim McLaughlin, who shared their philosophies and approaches.Unlike many collegiate athletic programs across America, engaged in a single minded, “win at all cost” mentality, incubating athletes for professional levels, Union fosters a different approach. Instead, Union is focused on more holistic coaching of individual young men and women, who must prove and maintain their academics and a host of other character-building requirements in order to represent the college athletically.At Union, metrics such as graduation rate, academic performance and community service are among the norms. As public ambassadors of the college, all Union athletes are held to strict high standards.This comprehensive approach strives to make everyone, not only the best athlete, but more importantly the best person they can be.So, while Union’s teams may not always be ranked number one in the standings, the athletes are finishing on top in character and integrity.Keep up the great work, Union athletes and coaches.Michael DaviNiskayuna Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionTo get more priests, expand search poolI was born a Catholic, and I will always be a Catholic. My education is entirely Catholic. My teachers were nuns, priests, and brothers — nuns in grammar school, priests in high school and brothers in college.I have traveled the world and lived in Peru and Brazil.I have attended mass in Europe, the Far East, Mid-East, Africa, South America and all over the United States.A consistent Sunday homily theme is that we should pray for more young men to choose the priesthood vocation. Currently, there are not enough priests to practice the church’s teaching.I propose a fix for the priesthood shortage.First, allow the priests to marry and let already-married men become priests. These men will better understand what it is like to be the head of the family, what it takes to grow a family. They will be better shepherds of their flocks.Second, allow women to become priests. I have met many women that are more intelligent, courageous and pious than men.They would make outstanding priests. I often witness women taking leadership roles in my church.They perform tasks that no one else wants to do, and they do it with vigor and exceptionally well.Wake up, Vatican. It is time to stop complaining and time to take action.Rafael PoloNorthville Cuomo is creating a NY ‘State of Chaos’Let’s get serious here. Gov. Andrew Cuomo, in his third term, has brought our state into a true “State of Chaos” — one of which a thriving state could never sustain. Yet here we are.Despite his State of the State rhetoric of grand accomplishments and initiatives, a $6 billion budget deficit remains. His vision of “E Pluribus Unum” has instead divided us. And ironically, as he claimed “ … to address the issues causing anxiety and frustration,” he has pushed the very issues (none of which were covered in his speech) that have produced record levels of anxiety.The dangers of a third term, as history has shown us, have now come to full realization. His previous controversial agendas, including Common Core and legalization of gambling, have affected families in harmful ways that he has yet to acknowledge.Who could possibly understand his end-game intentions, as he proceeds with the most personal and community-altering issues that impact all?With his recent push of bail reform, mandated HPV/flu vaccine, undocumented immigrant driver’s licenses, legalization of alcohol in theaters and the legalization of marijuana, one can only assume he is aiming for a total “State of Chaos.”These issues continue to affect us all in dangerous ways.This governor, and the state legislators supporting him in this chaos, need a reality check.Contact the governor’s office and your state legislators to address these life-altering issues that affect each of us.

LD re-appoints Nordea, adds Nykredit in DKK20bn bond mandates award

first_imgPeter Kjærgaard, CIO at Danish mortgage bond specialist Nykredit Asset Management, said it was no secret the LD mandate win was very important to the firm and that the team had worked hard to get it.“LD has run a very professional process, and they’ve been good at giving us feedback,” he said.The reason Nykredit Asset Management won the contract was threefold, he said.“First of all, there is the well-documented investment process we have, secondly the experience of the team and thirdly, our risk management process – both within the investment team, but also the risk-management set-up that surrounds that within Nykredit Asset Management,” Kjærgaard said.Christian Hyldahl, head of investment at Nordea Investment Management, said the company was very happy to win its mandate.He said while the asset class the company had been re-hired to manage was very well defined, primarily involving Danish mortgage bonds, what was unique about Nordea Investment Management’s investment process was that it did not apply any macros or overlays.“We have a lot of focus on risk management, so we don’t have any large duration bets,” Hyldahl said. “The investment process is quantitative and risk-management-driven with focus on extracting alpha from securities selection.”LD also awarded a short-duration bond mandate of just under DKK2bn to HP Fondsmæglerselskab, which Christensen described as a specialist manager with a very experienced team, even through he said it was not so well-known.Foreign managers won the two global bond mandates, with Paris-headquartered AXA Investment Management taking on a portfolio of European investment-grade bonds of around DKK2.5bn.New York-based Fischer, Francis, Trees & Watts won the smallest mandate of around DKK700m for global indexed bonds.The contracts awarded all cover a four-year period starting as soon as possible, the pension fund said, adding that they could be extended for up to six years.The total volume of the mandates is between DKK20bn to DKK23bn, depending on allocation decisions and members’ withdrawal of funds.Christensen said that, for investment-grade bonds, it was important the manager have particularly strong skills in credit analysis and sector allocation.He added that competition on both quality and price in the award process had been stiff.“This led to changes in some of the appointments,” he said. “The tender was carried out according to EU rules, which only increased the competition.”Nykredit Asset Management is replacing Maj Invest, and HP Fondsmæglerselskab is taking over from Nordea Investment Management.Meanwhile, the mandate won by AXA Investment Management is a new one, replacing a fund investment.Christjansen stressed that LD had been very satisfied with the results generated by the managers that had worked for the pension fund up to now.In July and March this year, LD – which now outsources all investment management – awarded four equities mandates. Danish pension fund LD has awarded around DKK20bn (€2.7bn) of bond mandates, with existing manager Nordea Investment Management and newcomer Nykredit Asset Management taking on the lion’s share of the outsourced work.LD, which manages a non-contributory pension scheme for Danes based on cost-of-living allowances for workers granted in 1980, put the bond mandates out to tender earlier this year.Nordea Investment Management and Nykredit Asset Management have each won a large Danish and North European gilt-edged and mortgage bond mandate of around DKK9bn.Claus Buchwald Christjansen, head of investment at the DKK53bn pension fund, said: “The decisive factor was not just a deep knowledge of the Danish and Northern European bond markets. The Danish managers are also in the top class internationally within risk management.”last_img read more

No home turf advantage for Petrobras as Dutch court takes on shareholders case

first_imgA Dutch-based organization representing Petrobras’ shareholders who suffered losses as a result of the long-running bribery and fraud schemes the Brazilian has been engulfed in, has made a major breakthrough as a Dutch court has decided to take the case on.According to International Securities Associations & Foundations Management Company (ISAF), on Wednesday, the District Court in Rotterdam ruled in favor of Stichting Petrobras Compensation Foundation (SPCF or Foundation) regarding arguments to establish jurisdiction in the Netherlands for eligible Petrobras investors seeking compensation for losses related to the “Lava Jato” or “Operation Car Wash” scandal.Also, the Court ruled that the arbitration clause in Petrobras’ Articles cannot preclude the SPCF from bringing a claim against Petrobras on behalf of aggrieved Petrobras shareholders.ISAF congratulated SPCF on the “important legal decision,” reminding investors that losses from investments in primary shares of Petrobras traded in Brazil on the Brasil Bolsa Balcão S.A. or B3 – Brazil (formerly BM&FBOVESPA) and via linked markets in Europe and also Bonds bought outside the US, will not be compensated under the US $3 billion settlement in the US.ISAF was referring to a $2.95B settlement reached with U.S. investors and approved by the Federal District in Court in New York on June 22, 2018, as final.Robert Frome, Chairman of ISAF, commented: “The ruling affirms that Petrobras investors, who were caught by surprise when revelations of corruption and fraud emerged in 2014, will be heard in a legal forum in the Netherlands which has previously dealt with complex collective shareholder litigations.”Frome continued: “The ruling in Rotterdam should be encouraging to investors, who originally believed that their recovery options were limited to arbitration in Brazil, and were thus rightly discouraged by the probable unfavorable outcome for investors in a ‘home court’ jurisdiction for Petrobras.”In a statement responding to the news from the Netherlands, the Brazilian oil company said:” Petrobras denies all allegations presented by the Foundation and continues taking the necessary measures to defend its interests.”The Brazilian company sees itself as the victim. It said: “It is worth mentioning that the Brazilian authorities, including the Federal Supreme Court, recognize that Petrobras has been a victim of the acts revealed by Operation Lava Jato. As a victim, the company has already recovered about R $ 2.5 billion and will continue to seek all appropriate measures against companies and individuals that have caused damages.”last_img read more

Balotelli lists ex-Liverpool, Man City teammates in his best XI

first_imgMario Balotelli insists he “only has good memories of the Premier League” as he included two of the division’s all-time great midfielders in his ultimate XI. The Italian forward spent three years at Manchester City after joining from Inter Milan in 2010, and then after heading back to Italy with AC Milan he returned to England for a season with Liverpool in 2014. Brescia striker Mario Balotelli is a reported target for Turkish side Galatasaray His time in the Premier League may have been full of incident and intrigue off the pitch, but he did win the division with City in 2012, a year after he’d also lifted the FA Cup with them at Wembley. When asked to name his ultimate XI during a Puma Football Instagram chat with Thierry Henry, Balotelli picked his former City teammate Yaya Toure in his midfield along with his old Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard and Italy legend Andrea Pirlo. “Pirlo guarantees you 10 goals a year, Yaya can do it all,” he said. “That’s a good team I think, although I left you [Henry] out, I left Cristiano [Ronaldo] out.” Balotelli picked Gerrard in his XI Balotelli plumped for the former Brazil forward Ronaldo in attack with Lionel Messi and Antonio Cassano, with his defence carrying a strong Inter Milan and Italy influence. Balotelli also reflected on his time in England during the conversation with Arsenal great Henry. “I only have good memories of the Premier League,” he said. “The Premier League is the best. The French league is physical too, though.” In elaborating on the controversies in his career, he added: “I always say I was crazy, but I wasn’t even crazy, I was just young.
