Ween Announces Their First Release Since 2008, “GodWeenSatan Live”

Posted on by

first_imgOn September 14th, 2001, seminal alternative rock band Ween were faced with a conundrum: should they go on with the re-release party they had planned for their 1990 album GodWeenSatan: The Oneness? With all of the turmoil in the world after the horrific attacks on September 11th just three days prior, the band was simply unsure if they a concert or party was the right move. The band decided to take the stage at their local New Hope, PA bar, John & Peter’s, and play through the pain and the anger. What resulted is the stuff of legend, a powerful cover-to-cover rendition of the album in its entirety in front of a capacity crowd.“There was a sense of raw emotion the night of the show. It had been only a few days since the towers had fallen, and everyone in the world had been glued to their TVs,” explains Dean Ween in a press release. “As we walked onto the stage the crowd was in a daze, but we came to play that night and needed to deliver in a big way. It was very cathartic on both sides of the stage, for both band and audience.”He continues, “Remarkably, that night, we were able to conjure up the spirit we had when we originally wrote these songs – some dating back to 1985. I have never heard Gener sing as hard as he did that night. He was screaming, just like he did when we cut the record. I broke out my old 1958 Fender Musicmaster – the same one I had played on GWS.”The show was never released to the public, however, thanks to a 24-track tape recording, Ween fans can now hear this legendary set for the first time. The band have announced that GodWeenSatan Live will be released on November 16th. The album, which contains the full recording of that magical night in New Hope, will be released as a double LP pressed onto 180g white vinyl. This marks Ween’s first new release since 2008.Explains Deaner, “9/14/01 was a very special night for Ween, a time way before it was trendy for bands to perform an album live in its entirety. It seemed like a good idea at the time, and now we’re pretty sure it was.”You can pre-order GodWeenSatan Live at this link. See below for the album’s art.last_img read more

Big Mean Sound Machine Is Using Their Fall Tour To Build Support For The NY Health Act

Posted on by

first_imgExperimental afrobeat/funk act Big Mean Sound Machine is heading out on tour next week, and for a major purpose at that. The Ithaca, New York-based group has announced they will be partnering up with the Campaign for NY Health with a goal of building support to finally pass the NY Health Act—a bill that is currently one co-sponsor shy of passing a law that would guarantee Medicare to all New York State residents.Big Mean Sound Machine made the announcement via their Facebook page. Check out the full statement below:Very excited to announce that we are teaming up with Bella’s Bartok and the Campaign for New York Health to help build support for the New York Health Act, a bill in the state legislature which would guarantee health care to all New York state residents regardless of age, wealth, place of employment, or immigration status for our Fall Tour!Since its inception, one of the core values of Big Mean Sound Machine has been to bring people and communities together in celebration and healing through music and dance. In these wild times, we feel it is important for musicians and artists to stand up for our creative communities. After reading this bill and reflecting on the state of healthcare in this country, especially compared to that of other first world nations, we feel it imperative that people be made aware of how healthcare reform could truly benefit everybody; and what better place to start than in the beautiful state of New York which we proudly call home. The New York Health Act has passed the state assembly the past three years in a row and is one state senate co-sponsor short of majority support. We are actually very close to making universal health care a reality in New York and we hope that the feelings of community, compassion, solidarity and freedom generated at our live shows can spill over to help raise awareness of what a equitable and more affordable health care system that benefits all of us could look like.NY HEALTH ACT INFO >>> nyhcampaign.orgFor tickets and more information one BMSM’s Fall tour, check out the band’s website.Big Mean Sound Machine Fall Tour Dates9.15 | Oneonta, NY | B Side Ballroom & Supper Club9.16 | Rochester, NY | Rochester Fringe Festival10.6 | Northampton, MA | Pearl Street Nightclub Ballroom*10.7 | Fairfield, CT | StageOne10.20 | Ithaca, NY | The Haunt10.21 | Pittsburgh, PA | The Rex Theater10.27 | Saranac Lake, NY | Waterhole10.28 | Rochester, NY | Funk ‘n Waffles Music Hall11.3 | Apalachin, NY | Ransom Steele Tavern*11.4 | Kingston, NY | BSP Kingston11.17 | Buffalo, NY | Buffalo Iron Works*11.18 | Syracuse, NY | Funk ‘n Waffles Downtown*12.1 | Raleigh, NC | The Pour House Music Hall12.2 | Asheville, NC | Asheville Music Hall12.9 | Albany, NY | The Hollow Bar + Kitchen12.15 | Brooklyn, NY | Brooklyn Bazaar12.16 | Boston, MA | Middle East Restaurant and Nightclub**with Bella’s Bartoklast_img read more

8 secrets to building a budget you can live with

Posted on by

first_imgSome people refer to budgets as a “money diet.” That’s an unfortunate choice of words given the negative connotations associated with dieting: reduced options, deprivation, maybe even pain.Fortunately, a budget doesn’t have to hurt. It’s not punishment for sins real or imagined; it’s a simple, smart tool for taking control of your finances.Like a healthy and realistic diet, budgeting is all about balance: saving money (or calories) where you can so you can spend (or eat) where you want. So, whip your finances into shape by following the next eight secrets to a budget that makes sense — and cents — for you.1. Create a goal. What do you really want out of life in the short and long terms? Maybe your budget is currently about damage control: managing consumer or student debt, or paying off that lemon you wish you’d never bought. continue reading » 61SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

The new talent: How to recruit and retain young and diverse board members

Posted on by

first_imgFor the past two years, I have attended the a large credit union board of directors conference as part of the delegation of 360 Federal Credit Union, based in Connecticut. Both years I had generally the same experience, I was one of the youngest (likely the youngest!) board members of any credit union delegation, way below the average age. Also, I was one of the few of Latino heritage, and in general there were not very many minority board members. At both conferences, almost everyone admitted the need for recruiting young and diverse board talent to remain competitive, but many were struggling to find and retain such talent. As a young and diverse board member from a credit union that has successfully recruited and retained such talent, I decided to write this article to share my experiences and help credit unions in this crucial task. I don’t claim to have all the answers and you should get perspectives from others, but my experience can be replicated at other credit unions to improve their chances of success. First of all, why should credit unions look for young and diverse board members? Every organization needs to be able to stay in touch with the times in order to remain competitive, serve the needs of its market, and grow. In order to do that, credit unions need to know their market, and there is no way to know that market unless they regularly engage in and involve that market in its decision making. According to The Brookings Institute, Millennials have surpassed Baby Boomers to become the nation’s largest age group. They are also one of the most diverse generations in our history.¹ Ignoring these population trends will guarantee that eventually every organization that doesn’t adapt will be sidelined by its competition who does, thus gaining a competitive advantage. The statistics also recommend recruiting young and diverse board members. The Boston Consulting Group found that companies with diverse management have 19% higher revenue and 9% higher EBIT due to improved innovation when compared to companies with less diverse management. Recruiting this kind of talent can help keep a credit union ahead of its competition and improve its financial performance! How should credit unions find young and diverse talent? Instead of waiting for them to come to you, I suggest you go to them! There are lots of different ways you can do this, so the methods outlined in this article are not exhaustive. There are many young and diverse professional organizations that are full of talented potential candidates who are looking for an opportunity to prove and distinguish themselves. A credit union can send representatives (even board members) to these events to meet these potential candidates and hear how they want to be served by a credit union. Also, a credit union can host events in its offices designed to attract a young and diverse crowd. For example, I was eventually  recruited because I met the Vice President of Human Resources of 360 Federal Credit Union at a seminar about understanding credit scores. At this event, 360 Federal Credit Union was able to attract a crowd of people to come to one of their offices, meet potential candidates, and even advertise itself to prospective members!  Credit Unions can use other methods like hiring a recruiter, but they can be expensive and often lack experience recruiting young and diverse talent. They can also utilize social media like LinkedIn to advertise board openings. Another method is to task the credit union board members and staff with exploring their networks to find potential candidates. 360 Federal Credit Union has used this tactic successfully to recruit new board members. In order for any recruitment tactic to work, credit unions need to be willing to talk to and support these potential candidates. We rarely see young and diverse people serving on organizational boards, so the prospect of serving on a credit union board can be intimidating. Credit unions need to be willing to answer their questions, calm their concerns, and show them that they will be supported during their service. Show them that they will be valued for who they are, that their insights and skills matter, and that they are not being used as a simple “token” to fill some kind of quota or to show off. I suggest showing them how the credit union plans to invest in them. Is there monetary compensation involved? What kinds of opportunities are available for education and development (this is especially important if the potential candidate is not familiar with the credit union industry, which few will be)? How will credit union board experience help them in their careers? How is the application or election process run? What should they expect as part of the onboarding process? I would also suggest the credit union consider offering a mentorship opportunity with a more experienced board member. Once these concerns are addressed, the candidate will likely feel like serving on the board would be a good use of their time and that they will be able to make a difference. Failing to do this is a major reason why credit union boards fail to convince qualified candidates to apply or run for board vacancies. Then comes the next step, of equal importance, which is the process of retaining the young and diverse talent on your board. You need to develop an atmosphere that will embrace and value the unique perspectives of these new board members. For example, many credit unions have struggled to retain board members because they couldn’t come to meetings during the middle of a work day. This might be fine for individuals who are retired, but not for those with typical 9am to 5pm jobs. I suggest making sure board meetings occur later in the day or early evening to minimize disruption to the work day. Credit unions should also utilize technology to allow board members to attend meetings remotely via conference calls or other virtual meeting programs. I have called into board meetings when I was traveling for work, and it has allowed me to contribute even when I am physically far away. At first, don’t be surprised when a new board member is quiet. They may still be intimidated by being on a new board, especially if they are not familiar with the industry. Take the initiative to reach out to them and respectfully solicit their opinions and feedback in meetings. Maybe even give them opportunities to issue certain reports to the board so that they can practice speaking to the group. Occasionally, schedule one-on-one meetings between the board chair and the new board members to check up on them and see how they are feeling. Don’t let new board members feel isolated and ignored, that is a major reason why they end up leaving. Take their suggestions seriously and make sure their concerns are addressed.As I mentioned earlier, continue to invest in new board members to make sure they get up to speed. Invite them to join various sub-committees and even ask them if they could see themselves as future board officers. Give them plenty of opportunities to grow and be heard. Sending young and diverse board members to conferences to network and learn from other credit unions is a major way to engage them. There are various young and diverse credit union professional groups, like the World Council Young Credit Union Professionals, that can be major resources to these new board members. Showing them that there are other credit union board members that look like them will inspire them to get more involved. Recruiting and retaining young and diverse board members is crucial to the long-term success of any credit union. If credit unions take a proactive approach to recruiting such talent, and develop a welcoming culture that values their insights, then they will unlock their amazing potential and get a competitive advantage. Be patient, be persistent, and make the necessary changes, because they will be worth it. Feel free to reach out to me to continue this important discussion. ¹https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2018/03/01/millennials-overtake-baby-boomers/ 20SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Luis A.

Bild: Croatia is among the eight countries that German tourists could visit this summer

Posted on by

first_imgThere are also various other factors, from fear of travel, declining spending and financial power, lack of vacations, etc.… Measures are slowly being planned or are already being relaxed in each country, which means there will be a strong narrative of each country (buy and travel locally) in order to start the local economy as soon as possible, which is currently an imperative. It is in this segment that the Germans are very much aware of the need to strengthen the local economy. Of course, one should be aware and realistic, until a vaccine or cure is found, we cannot expect a recovery in tourism, which will surely last from that moment for 2-3 years. In the current situation, we also cannot expect large tourist traffic and tourist activity, but we should certainly look at it and be optimistic, ie do our best to catch some tourist traffic. That is why we need to react quickly and be ready, listen to the situation in every market and be proactive. Of course, to emphasize once again, one should be optimistic and do everything to activate the tourist market, as always, but one should also be aware of the realistic framework. This tourist year needs to be crossed, at least when it comes to some big tourist numbers, and if the situation gives us a chance, of course we need to embrace it and do everything in our power. But also our long coast has too many places and coves for distance as well as smaller tourist destinations. Certainly the demand will be for houses and villas with swimming pools, especially those in rural areas and away from city centers, as well as active holidays and the interior. Certainly, such texts and advertisements in the most widely read and extremely influential German newspapers are a big plus. And just a great foundation, if and when the situation is further improved in an optimistic scenario, to direct promotional budgets to save from the tourist season what to save that. / / / A VIEW FROM GERMANY: IF YOU TRAVEL ACROSS BORDERS AT ALL, THE GOAL WILL BE A EUROPEAN COUNTRY But we must also be aware of the question of when and if it will open borders. As Capak recently stated, borders will be opened only if the situation in other countries is stable, ie if it is better than in our country. Certainly, regional travel will be in trend in the coming years, not so far from your home. Here, as a car destination, we certainly have an advantage. Also, after more than a month of quarantine, self-isolation, psychological fear and negative news, of course, everyone has a very strong desire to travel, to finally “breathe”. But what will be the real rational desire to travel when it comes during that time we will see. One is desire and the other is reality. However, fear is the strongest and the main opponent of tourism. / / / GERMANY AS OUR MAIN BROADCASTING MARKET, RECOVERY EXPECTED ONLY IN AUGUST OR SEPTEMBER Also, in addition to Bild, today it is German state television ZDF in the morning program reported on Croatia, and they released and staff from the new CNTB campaign #CroatiaLongDistanceLove. BILD: So will Croatia leave our vacation Factors that will play a role Prema article the most widely read German newspaper picture, Croatia is one of eight countries that German tourists could visit this summer. This fear is further expressed for families with children. And that’s why it’s important to be close to some hospital center, and the islands in this story are extra risky, because of the distance and without a direct road connection to the mainland. Despite the uncertain situation in which it is not known whether tourist trips can be realized, Bild singled out eight countries that could be desirable destinations for German tourists this summer, namely: Croatia, Greece, Austria, Switzerland, Tunisia, Sweden, Denmark and Iceland. Namely, Bild believes that these countries have responded well to the pandemic and that they could be ready for the arrival of tourists by the summer. The situation is changing from day to day, and we should react accordingly. At the moment, no one can say for sure what the weather will be like in September, and how the whole coronavirus situation will develop. Admittedly, epidemiologists expect a second wave of spread sometime in September, but for now, scientists and epidemiologists from around the world still have too many questions and assumptions and too few answers. / / / ISLIVING THE MOOD OF AUSTRIAN TOURISTS AND THE IMPACT ON THE SUMMER SEASON IN CROATIA Until May 03, a warning to citizens not to travel abroad is in force in Germany, and by the end of April it will be decided whether the recommendations will be extended. Certainly, Switzerland and Austria are also counting on German tourists, who in the context of the current need for social distance, active vacation, nature, ecology have a strong trump card. As well as the fact that the destinations are closer than us. BILD: Wo man im sommer trotz Corona Urlaub machen kann Also, Bild ranked the chances of tourist trips in these countries, and Croatia and Greece are in the category of “good chances”. Austria and Switzerland are in the “very likely” holiday category, while other countries are in the “likely” category. It is stated that Croatia introduced strict measures in the fight against the virus in a timely manner, which was a good decision that paid off. Director of the CNTB in Germany Romeo Draghicchio believes that in Croatia there are many accommodations in which it is possible to maintain a distance between guests. “Croatia is in a good position due to its accessibility by car via Austria and Slovenia, and if these countries open their borders, air flights are also possible.Draghiccho points out. last_img read more
