I’m just knocked out when anybody does a cover of mine … First of all, I’m happy that someone has heard the song and is moved to cover it. Second of all, it gives me a completely fresh take on the song, and I can then enter it into my own judgmental process … I think there are songs that are better done than I have done them.”In honor of Cohen and his musical legacy, sit back and enjoy a selection of Leonard Cohen songs performed by some of our favorite artists.Gov’t Mule (w/ The Better Half Singers) – “Bird On The Wire”Widespread Panic – “First We Take Manhattan” & “Hallelujah”
Joe Mantello directs a cast that also includes Michael Esper, Rachel Tucker, Aaron Lazar, Fred Applegate, Sally Ann Triplett and Collin Kelly-Sordelet. Sting took on the role of Jackie White, originally played by Jimmy Nail, on December 9 to help bring attention to the show, which struggled to find an audience since opening. Featuring a book by John Logan and Brian Yorkey, The Last Ship is inspired by Sting’s own childhood experiences and his album of the same name. It is set in an English seafaring town that operates around the local shipyard and follows Gideon Fletcher, a man who left home to see the world and returns fourteen years later to find that the future of the shipyard is in danger. The shipyard’s workers decide to take their fate into their own hands and build a towering representation of the shared dream that has defined their existence. Pop star Sting boarding the cast of his musical The Last Ship was not enough to save the show, which will bid farewell to the Great White Way when his limited run ends on January 24, 2015. The high-profile tuner opened officially at the Neil Simon Theatre on October 26, 2014 and at time of closing will have played 29 previews and 105 regular performances. Related Shows “We have been bewildered and saddened by our inability to sustain an audience for this musical that we deeply love,” producers Jeffrey Seller and Kathryn Schenker reportedly wrote in an email to company members on January 5.

FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享From the Economic Times of India:Moody’s Investors Service predicts that India will turn a power surplus country in the next 5 to 7 years as the share of solar capacities rise. It is expected to create challenges for thermal power companies including a drastic fall in their capacity utilization.“Implementing India’s aggressive renewable energy targets will be demanding,” says Terry Fanous, Moody’s Managing Director for Project and Infrastructure Finance ratings in Asia Pacific.Fanous says that in addition to managing project construction and counterparty risk issues, expansion of renewable energy financing requires a stable and predictable policy framework that supports long term investment. India has taken steps to support investment in renewable energy, and further traction in policy reform is key for the sector’s ongoing development.“Domestic banks will continue to provide significant funding for renewable energy projects, but greater funding diversity is needed, Fanous says, adding “Attracting institutional debt will clearly support development of India’s renewable energy sector,” he said.Attracting institutional debt will benefit from ongoing efforts by the government, supported by multilateral development banks (MDBs) as providers of credit.Coal-fired power capacities to come under the glare of sun, says Moody’s Moody’s: India’s Solar Expansion Will Be at Coal’s Expense
When you live in a van in Colorado and the sun dips below the horizon, you have two options. Get in and enjoy that claustrophobic feeling of being in the same small space for far too many hours, or grab some Nite Ize products and keep the fun going. With the fire ban stretching across the state, it’s easy to get discouraged after sunset in the backcountry. Without a fire to base the evening debauchery around, what’s an outdoor enthusiast to do? Luckily, Nite Ize has plenty of products to entertain. Check out some options before for both humans and furry friends alike.Fun for HumansSPOKELIT® LED WHEEL LIGHT – DISC-O SELECT™Nothing says “I’m keeping myself safe, but I’m here to party” quite like the SpokeLit LED Wheel Light from Nite Ize. The SpokeLit is an LED lighting accessory for all occasions. And we mean ALL OCCASIONS. You can select between six colors or leave it on the color changing DISC-O Select mode to keep you seen and safe with perfect side visibility while riding your bike. Biking home from work? SpokeLit. Biking to the bar on a Saturday night? SpokeLit. Biking across the desert at Burning Man? Definity SpokeLit. This shock and weather resistant light is super efficient and has a battery life of 20 hours (roughly the length of one REALLY GOOD party). In all honesty, it just makes riding your bike more fun. We’ve even used ours along with a headlamp while mountain biking at night. We usually select our color based on our mood… Which is almost always Disc-O mode.FLASHFLIGHT® LED LIGHT-UP FLYING DISCWhen we’re backpacking we choose food with a high nutrition-to-weight ratio. When we’re in the van, we choose our toys with a high fun-to-size ratio. The FlashFlight LED Light-Up Flying Disc always makes the cut. The FlashFlight is a LED Light Up flying disc designed by an Ultimate Frisbee player to perform as beautifully as it looks. Weighing in at a mere 185 grams the FlashFlight is our go-to for fun whether we’re in the van or spending a night in the backcountry. The FlashFlight is not only water resistant but it floats, too! Nite Ize incorporated fiber optics as well as long-life LED lights into the FlashFlight to make sure you can see it from every angle. Obviously, it’s great at night, but it was designed to fly like a high-quality flying disc and you’ll be reaching for it even during the day. Fun for DogsHUCK ‘N TUCK™ GLOWSTREAK® COLLAPSIBLE THROWER + LED BALLWe often play fetch with our van pooch after dark, and before the Huck ‘N’ Tuck Glowstreak Collapsible Thrower and LED ball, we lost an uncountable amount of tennis balls. With the LED ball, and easy to store thrower, we can tire our puppy out every night after finding camp. The Huck ‘N’ Tuck thrower extends to two feet long for long arching throws, and collapses down to 12” so it’s easy to store in the van. The motion-activated LED ball comes to life with a bounce against the ground or the first throw, and keeps glowing until it’s stationary for five minutes. You get five more minutes of the LED’s blinking before it turns off. This ensures you can find the ball even when your pup is done running. That strong little LED has 35 hours of glow time so you can play throughout the entire summer. The LED ball is molded, shockproof AND waterproof (and it floats!). This means if you have a pup that likes to swim, you can keep the water games going all night. The ball has ridges so it won’t slip as he makes his way back for another throw. It is also the same size as a tennis ball so it’s compatible with all throwers! Our dog has put this ball to the test, and it’s stood up to his slobber, chewing, and his incredible ability to hide the ball from us when we’re done playing.NITEHOWL® LED SAFETY NECKLACEWe have an adventure dog. He sprints along as we bike down single track, secures the perimeter every time we arrive at a new campsite, and scrambles up rock fields as we make our way to summits. This dog knows freedom and yearns to roam like the rest of us. When we arrive at camp, we instantly reach for the Nitehowl LED Safety Necklace. The collar is made up of flexible polymer which you trim down to fit your pup’s neck exactly. It comes in three different colors so you can easily distinguish between other dogs wearing the same collar. The button on the weather-resistant battery pack cycles you through solid lights, flashing, and off. We use the flashing mode when walking through crowds at festivals to make sure our pup is seen, and so everyone else knows he’s ready to party. At campsites, we use the solid option so we can always spot him (and he’s still ready to party). Sometimes it’s catching glimpses of him sprinting through the trees around us, or as a glowing reminder he’s curled up next to our camp chair snoozing once he’s partied out.Nite Ize is the Live Outside and Play’s title sponsor.

continue reading » The dynamics of small business lending have been changing rapidly over the past 10 years. Owners of small businesses today probably got their introduction to lending via fintech, so it’s not surprising that small-business owners are now turning to online loan origination processes in greater numbers. Having forged their expectations as consumers of personal loan and mortgage solutions in the early 2000s, these consumers-turned-business-owners now demand the same efficiencies in the enterprise arena.Two recent studies from the Federal Reserve Banks of New York and Cleveland point to clues regarding the nature of these businesses, as well as their preferences when dealing with financial institutions. The studies indicate that smaller businesses (those with annual gross revenue of less than $1 million) gravitate toward online lending in greater numbers than their larger counterparts.The most telling sign for the future, however, concerns the year-over-year satisfaction rates reported by small businesses between 2015 and 2016. Business owners participating in the New York study reported an increase of 31 percent in satisfaction with the online processes and results for that 12-month period. That is an amazing jump that should be setting off sirens in your credit union. That kind of increase in client satisfaction is reminiscent of the move Japanese auto makers made in the late ’70s against U.S. manufacturers. 11SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
Sep 5, 2008 (CIDRAP News) – Amid concern about rising resistance to oseltamivir (Tamiflu) in influenza A/H1N1 viruses, a Dutch team this week reported the death of a leukemia patient who was infected with an H1N1 virus that was resistant to the antiviral drug.In a letter in this week’s New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), the Dutch authors said the case suggests that oseltamivir-resistant H1N1 viruses can cause disease, despite evidence from animal studies that the resistance mutation makes the viruses much less dangerous. The letter said the man’s virus was also resistant to amantadine, an older antiviral drug.On Aug 20, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported that 31% of influenza A/H1N1 isolates from 16 countries that conducted recent tests carried the H274Y mutation, which confers resistance to oseltamivir. Resistance levels ranged from 100% (10 of 10 isolates) in Australia to 13% (4 of 32 isolates) in Chile.Emergence of the oseltamivir-resistant H1N1 virus was first noted in Norway in January, and since then researchers have found the virus in 35 countries, including the United States and Canada.The spread of the oseltamivir-resistant H1N1 virus has puzzled experts because it has not been clearly linked to treatment with the drug.In the case report, authors from Erasmus University Medical Center in Rotterdam wrote that a 67-year-old man who was on chemotherapy in a 3-year battle with chronic lymphocytic leukemia was hospitalized with shortness of breath, a dry cough, and fever. On his second hospital day, he experienced acute respiratory failure, and his physicians placed him on a ventilator and started empirical antibiotic treatment.Computed tomography (CT) revealed that the patient had patchy lung infiltrates, and tests on samples from his respiratory tract showed he had influenza A/H1N1.On the sixth hospital day the man received oseltamivir, but by day 13 physicians discontinued the drug because sequence analysis of the virus revealed the H274Y mutation and there was no decrease in the viral load.The authors reported that the mutation was found in samples obtained before the patient began oseltamivir therapy. The man’s family and the hospital record revealed that he had had no contact with patients who were taking oseltamivir.On the 15th hospital day the man’s doctors prescribed amantadine, and after a few days his neutrophil count increased, a sign of bone marrow recovery, the group reported.On day 20 doctors took the patient off the ventilator and instituted zanamivir treatment. However, 2 days later the man had respiratory failure again, and his medical team put him back on the ventilator and discontinued zanamivir therapy. (Like osteltamivir, zanamivir is a neuramnidase inhibitor, but no increase in zanamivir resistance has been reported recently.)By day 26 physicians detected no influenza virus, but did note that sequence analysis showed an amantadine-resistance mutation in the viral M2 protein (L26F). They wrote that recovery of the immune system was probably responsible for clearing the virus, because the patient had received only three doses of zanamivir.A repeat CT scan taken on day 28 showed that pulmonary infiltrates had progressed. Because of the man’s poor prognosis, the ventilator was removed on day 34, and he died 3 days later.The authors cited animal studies indicating that oseltamivir resistance leaves H1N1 viruses “severely compromised.” Despite these reports, they wrote, “the case we describe suggests that this oseltamivir-resistant virus can be pathogenic, at least in an immunocompromised patient.”In an editorial published by Eurosurveillance in January, authorities said resistant viruses with the H274Y mutation had been seen in previous flu seasons but were rare and did not spread easily. But the more recent H1N1 isolates with the mutation were “fitter” and were spreading in the community, they wrote.Van der Vries E, Van den Berg B, Schutten M.

The pension fund has a long-term strategic allocation to equities of 40%. It wants to replace this with “a fully featured trading and portfolio tracking tool”, which it said should help to mitigate risk and improve efficiency. Dealing activity amounts to several hundred million pounds sterling in a typical year, the tender notice said. Annual trading volumes for Lothian’s internal portfolios have typically ranged between 1,000 and 2,000 trades a year for internal equity portfolios, and between 100 and 200 trades a year for internal bond portfolios. Lothian Pension Fund is looking to move from Excel spreadsheets to “fully featured” investment software to manage its equity and bond dealing.It is doing so to meet regulatory requirements and ensure its investment management is efficient.The Scottish pension fund invests around £7bn (€7.9bn) of assets, including the assets of two other pension funds administered by the City of Edinburgh Council. It has a regulated investment management company, LPFI Limited, which was granted authorisation from the UK regulator earlier this year.Currently the equity and bond dealing carried out by its internal portfolio managers is managed using an entirely manual system, according to a tender notice.
