Watch Tool’s Danny Carey And Justin Chancellor Join Primus For ‘Southbound Pachyderm’ In NOLA

first_imgCheck out some additional videos of Primus’s performance, including “Jerry Was A Race Car Driver” and “My Name Is Mud,” below: Additionally, this Instagram post captures some of the magic: Last night marked the final performance along the much-hyped Tool tour featuring Primus. The two bands toured together through much of January, but only on the final night, at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, LA, did the two bands actually share the stage.During last night’s performance of “Southbound Pachyderm,” Primus called upon Tool members Danny Carey and Justin Chancellor for the occasion. The exciting collaboration makes sense, considering Carey filled in for longtime Primus drummer Tim “Herb” Alexander back in 2014, when Alexander suffered from a heart attack.Still, seeing members of both bands share the stage must have been quite the thrill. While no great video footage has emerged yet, you can watch this Periscope video to catch some of the action. Here’s a clip below as well:center_img [Photo via AgentOgden Instagram]last_img read more

Consider The Gift Of Education On Giving Tuesday

first_imgAfter Black Friday and Cyber Monday, what better way is there to kick off the holiday season than with a charitable donation? This year, consider donating to education through the Los Alamos Public Schools Foundation. Gifts can be made at www.lapsfoundation.com/donate. Sure, we may all feel bad about splurging on goods for ourselves, but there is a way to stop the shame and guilt–through giving. “Giving Tuesday,” the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, is a nationwide movement built on the premise of giving back. To learn more about the LAPS Foundation and how to get involved and/or make a donation, visit http://www.lapsfoundation.com or call 505.500.6501. Los Alamos High School chemistry students use virtual reality headsets made possible by a grant from the LAPS Foundation. Courtesy photocenter_img So how does your donation help the schools? Donations go towards funding teacher grants over the course of the school year, whether that be purchasing books for guided reading in classrooms, or supplying students with virtual reality headsets to allow them to experience a different approach to learning. An amount can make a huge difference in a student’s academic life. The Los Alamos Public Schools Foundation is an independent organization that supports, challenges, and invests in a successful future for all Los Alamos public school students. Since its inception in 2005, the LAPS Foundation has raised more than $1.5 million to fund opportunities and materials for students, provide professional development for district educators, defray operating expenses, and assist with capital improvements to enrich learning environments in the Los Alamos public schools. The Foundation raises money through generous contributions from individuals and organizations who share the Foundation’s core values.

USA: Stone Harbor Beach Renourishment Resumes

first_imgChildren who live and visit the Borough of Stone Harbor are grabbing their yellow hats and acting as official Honorary Inspectors for the Stone Harbor beach fill project that resumed on Wednesday afternoon, July 3rd.The Borough is making free plastic hats available to children who are curious about the large beach nourishment project underway; each hat has a sticker that reads: “Stone Harbor. Stronger Then the Storm”.“This is a fun way to educate the children and families who visit Stone Harbor’s beaches about the overwhelming benefits of a beach fill project“, said Stone Harbor Mayor Suzanne Walters. “Children are curious and excited to see the fresh, new sand being pumped onto our beachfront and everyone in the Borough is delighted to talk to them about how and why a beach fill project occurs”.The United States Army Corps of Engineers resumed a major beach fill project along the Stone Harbor beachfront on July 3. The project had been suspended for three weeks in June so a smaller beach fill project could be conducted in neighboring North Wildwood. Stone Harbor’s beach fill project will continue in a south to north direction 24 hours a day. seven days a week until it concludes later this month at the 80th Street border shared with Avalon.“Residents and visitors are absolutely thrilled that Stone Harbor was able to successfully negotiate a complete reconstruction of our beachfront following hurricanes Sandy and Irene”, Mayor Walters said. “They appreciate the fact that this project will not only provide a large, recreational beachfront for years to come but also provide the first line of defense from our next coastal storm, not if, but when, it arrives”.Norfolk Dredging of Norfolk, Virginia is the contractor for the beach fill project. To date, the project is approximately 50 percent completed. More than 700,000 cubic yards of sand is being places on the entire length of the Stone Harbor beachfront. Approximately 25 days of dredging operations remain; it is possible the beach fill project will conclude before the end of July.During the July 4th holiday weekend, the project will advance to or near 96th Street. Norfolk Dredging will advance its operations north on the beach during the overnight/early morning hours to prevent interference with beachgoers. A special beach access path is also being constructed to allow for a safe direct or indirect path at the 96th Street beach.All beaches in Stone Harbor will remain open for the duration of this project except for a maximum of 1,000 feet in the immediate construction area. When the project moves north on the beachfront, the beaches that had been closed for a day will be immediately re-opened to the public.[mappress]Press Release, July 4, 2013last_img read more

Regulators’ approach to failures

first_imgWe live in a free market economy. The Legal Services Act 2007 brings changed market forces to the legal services market and the Legal Services Board has a regulatory objective to encourage competition. Apparently well-capitalised new entrants or investors in existing providers are coming into the market. There are said to be circa 100 alternative business structure applications impatiently queuing for SRA licences to practise. The business model is changing and some practices are failing, while others are said to be on the watch list, in the face of continuing consolidation in the market and increasingly limited access to finance and working capital. Such is the nature of competition. We see it in other sectors and have an insolvency regime that is intended to promote and protect an entrepreneurial culture, providing mechanisms that enable businesses to be ‘rescued’ by shedding some of the encumbrances (usually debt) incurred in respect of an earlier business plan, model or strategy, now overtaken by changes in the economy or innovative competition. The legal profession was regarded as a good bet for investment and lending post-2000, but the apparently unforeseen economic impact post-2007/8, a reduced overall demand for some legal services and the introduction of new and different competition, have left some decent practitioners in difficulties. We have seen some better resourced firms stepping forward to rescue all or part of those worst affected, using some of the mechanisms established in the wider economy. So the pre-pack comes to the law. I have always taken the view that practitioners are in business and commercial but working in an environment where a practice failure was traditionally regarded as indicative not of entrepreneurial capability, but of a lack of competence and probably integrity. However, if the overarching regulator encourages the white heat of competition, particularly in an otherwise fairly static domestic market, it must anticipate the impact on existing providers and, presumably take the view that a few failures and accelerated consolidation are in the public interest. Whether some creditors would agree that these costs of transition are in the public interest is a question I won’t answer. So what is the attitude of the regulator to the principals of a failed law firm? Our professional Principles require us to manage our businesses effectively, in accordance with good governance and risk management. The failure of any business suggests the Principals will have failed to meet this mandatory obligation. The question has significance for the individuals falling out of the affected firms as well as those firms who step forward to rescue – thereby avoiding serious disruption to client service, possible reputational damage to the sector as a whole, and potentially expensive interventions. A firm may regard the individuals as good lawyers, with valuable client relationships that they can sensibly add to the reach of their own practice, or to consolidate their position on one or more panels. However they are properly concerned to understand how the SRA will respond and how quickly. Is the rescuing firm going to find itself welcoming an individual or team/group who will later collect an adverse finding that will require disclosure and therefore prejudice later tenders? So, in cases that arise in the future will the SRA look first at the possible regulatory breach, or have regard to a greater public/consumer interest in ensuring the damage from the failure of a firm is limited? Thus focusing on the ultimate outcome? We will see. The able but walking wounded and their potential employers need to know, or at least have sufficient information to form a view, in the management of risk (and discharge of their regulatory obligations). Guidance, with usual caveats in respect of those who demonstrate a genuine lack of integrity, would be helpful. Robert Bourns is senior partner at national law firm TLTlast_img read more
