This past weekend Charleston, SC based Phish tribute Runaway Gin made their long awaited Big Apple debut to rave reviews. In the 3rd show of their pre-Thanksgiving run, the rigorously touring Phish tribute introduced Manhattan to both the slow and funky “Llama” (as played at Mann in 2016 and Raleigh in 2015) and “Camel Walk” with the beat from “Honky Tonk Women” (similar to Phish’s version with the “Low Rider” beat from a Dick’s 2016 soundcheck.)In a seeming nod to the Hampton 1998 Phish run played 18 years before almost to the date, Runaway Gin opened the Highline Ballroom show in the same fashion with Gary Glitter’s “Rock and Roll (pt. 2)” hyping the crowd into a frenzy for the phan favorite “Tweezer” which followed. “Tweezer” quickly went type 2 and out popped a surprise “Sneakin’ Sally Through the Alley” which quickly went off the rails into a neo-psychedelic jam space.Watch the “Tweezer” > “Sneaking Sally In The Alley” video below, courtesy of LazyLightning55a.Next RG pummeled into a fiery “Axilla (pt. 1)” in honor of Graig Adler (@FurryThug)’s Birthday followed by the juggeranaut compostion “Reba” which was then followed by a shreddy “Maze” with some whistling over the intro reminiscent of the Darien Lake 1993 version. Unlike the Darien Lake version however – Runaway Gin returned to tag Reba after “Maze”. To end the set RG played a psychedelic and funky jammed out Tube followed by a searing Good Times Bad Times which featured some backwards guitar playing from guitarist Andy Greenberg.Watch the band take on “Maze,” courtesy of LazyLightning55a.Set two opened with a rare combo of “Wolfman’s Brother” -> “Cities” which in response to a cardboard Llama head cut out in the crowd cleanly segued into a slow funky version of “Llama”. Next Runaway Gin played another song absent from 2016 Fall Tour – the ubiquitously requested “You Enjoy Myself”. YEM led into a vocal jam per usual which quickly gave way to “Twist” which transitioned into “Carini” and finally morphed into “Tweezer Reprise” to end the set.In rare form Runaway Gin reemerged to thunderous applause for a four song encore consisting of a surprising “Camel Walk” with the beat from “Honky Tonk Woman”, a cover of Ween’s “Roses are Free” fused deftly into the Phish classic “Lizards”, and finally Phish’s hyper-speed rendition of bluegrass classic “Uncle Pen”.Setlist: Runaway Gin at Highline Ballroom, New York, NY – 11/19/16Set I: Rock and Roll (pt. 2) > Tweezer -> Sneakin’ Sally Through the Alley -> Axilla (pt.1)$, Reba -> Maze* > Reba, Tube > Good Times Bad TimesSet II: Wolfman’s Brother -> Cities -> Llama^, You Enjoy Myself -> Twist -> Carini > Tweezer RepriseE: Camel Walk&, Roses are Free -> Lizards, Uncle Pen$dedicated to Graig Adler *w/ whistling over intro ^slow and funky &w/ beat from Honky Tonk Women
As the rains came down inside Madison Square Garden, one fan of Phish apparently couldn’t keep it together. According to a report in the New York Daily News, 40-year-old fan Scott Zaleski apparently blacked out at the concert, and caused some havoc in Times Square after the show.Zaleski reportedly tried to steal the gun off of three police offices stationed in Times Square, near 36th and Broadway. He also apparently kicked another officer in the shoulder as he was being ushered into a police car, and thus is being charged with attempted robbery and assault after the incident.His lawyer, Robert Kelly, said, “He had no intention of causing harm to anyone and apologizes to the NYPD… He feels terrible, embarrassed, he had no recollection.” Zaleski was released on his own recognizance after the incident, and was taken to Bellevue Hospital for a psychological evaluation.If you’re going to take drugs at a Phish show, maybe don’t attack the police afterwards…
By Dialogo August 09, 2013 UNITED NATIONS – United Nations (UN) experts will head to Panama next week to inspect a North Korean ship impounded last month after the discovery of Cuban missile parts in its cargo, Sylvie Lucas, Luxembourg’s UN ambassador, said on Aug. 7. “The panel will go next week to Panama to assist in the investigation, and then will present a report to the committee,” said Lucas, chairman of the UN sanctions committee. The experts will report back to the committee, which will then determine whether North Korea is in violation of any sanctions. Lucas declined to speculate on what regulations may or may not have been broken. The United States and other countries have stated that the discovery of non-declared Cuban weapons in the North Korean vessel represents a clear violation of UN sanctions against North Korea because of its nuclear program. Cuba insisted that missiles found within a sugar consignment aboard the Chong Chon Gang freighter were obsolete arms due to be repaired and returned by North Korea. Panamanian authorities boarded the vessel because of suspicions it may have been carrying drugs. [AFP (United Nations), 08/08/2013; La Estrella (Panama), 07/08/2013]
Consider the relationship between your credit union’s enterprise risk management (ERM) team and the internal audit team. If these two teams work together and share information, not only will they decrease the likelihood of duplicating efforts, they’ll be able to improve your risk management process.While these two groups may feel threatened by each other’s work, says Scott Hood, strategy, risk, and assurance partner with Rochdale Paragon Group, “their roles are complementary, and they should be working together.”Hood will address the CUNA Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance Leadership Conference in Nashville Sept. 23-25.How is the role of ERM expanding?Scott Hood: Credit unions have been expanding the role of ERM for the last five to six years. Initially, they considered ERM to just include the identification and assessment of the most significant risks in the organization, the enhancement of procedures used to mitigate those risks, and the use of that information in the strategic planning process.

Press Association Manager Arsene Wenger has challenged his Arsenal squad to show their true value when big-spending Tottenham head to the Emirates Stadium for Sunday’s north London derby. While Spurs star man Gareth Bale is on the verge of a multi-million pound move to Real Madrid, they have nevertheless smashed the club transfer record three times this summer bringing in the likes of Paulinho, Etienne Capoue, Nacer Chadli and £26million striker Roberto Soldado, with the signing of Romanian defender Vlad Chiriches from Steaua Bucharest confirmed on Friday. Tottenham’s summer spending spree passed the £90million mark when they completed the signing of Erik Lamela from Roma while the club announced last night they had reached an agreement with Ajax over the transfer of Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen. “I know all the players they have bought. For the rest, we will see how well they integrate and how well they will do. It is very difficult to predict that,” said the Arsenal boss, whose side again finished above Spurs in fourth place last season. “They try very hard (to bridge the gap) of course, that is normal. In our job, there is always a technical risk when you buy more than three players because you unbalance a little bit the stability of your squad. “I know that in England it is very well seen, but it is always difficult when you bring so many players in, how everybody will do to predict that.” Wenger says Arsenal – who failed in bids for Gonzalo Higuain, Luis Suarez and Yohan Cabaye earlier this summer – will never be bullied into paying what they believe are inflated fees to push through a deal or make any “panic buys” ahead of the September 2 deadline. “We have financial potential, I wouldn’t deny that, but we will decide still to pay the right price,” he added. Wenger maintains direct comparisons between Arsenal and Tottenham’s strength cannot be drawn just on spending alone. He continued: “I think about does my squad have a chance to fight for the Premier League or not. We don’t compare to Spurs especially. “Last year, if you had looked at Chelsea’s squad at the start of last year, would you have said they had a squad to fight for the Premier League last year? Yes. “However, they finished two points ahead of us and it is in the last game that it (third place) has been decided. “So you let people talk and you try to analyse the quality of the game you have. “I just can say one thing, in the last six months we have lost one game.” By contrast, Wenger has completed only the free transfers of midfielder Mathieu Flamini and France Under-21 striker Yaya Sanogo. Arsenal are, though, expected to be late movers ahead of the September 2 deadline – with Karim Benzema, Mesut Ozil and Angel di Maria of Real Madrid said to be top of the wanted list. Wenger, however, insists his men can show they are more than a match for Spurs’ new big-money signings by continuing on from the wins over Fulham and Fenerbahce following an opening day home defeat by Aston Villa. “I can understand that it is very interesting for people to read the newspapers and see who goes in and out, but there is only one thing that matters if you really love football – and that is what happens on the pitch,” said Wenger, who will be without forward Lukas Podolski for up to three months because of a torn hamstring. “We have a way to play, good players and let’s focus on that. “It’s a good opportunity for us to show our strengths against Tottenham because they have as well strengthened their team. “I am confident that we will have a very good performance.” Wenger is not in awe of Tottenham’s summer spending spree – and even claimed it could end up destabilising the balance of the squad rather than turning them into Barclays Premier League top four contenders.
Arsene Wenger accepts things can get a “bit heated” between rival managers, but feels Jose Mourinho showed a lack of respect when the Chelsea boss said 10 years without winning the title must be “very boring” for Arsenal supporters. There is certainly no love lost between Wenger and Mourinho, the pair having squared up in the technical area at Stamford Bridge earlier this season. The Arsenal boss was given the opportunity to respond when he spoke to the media on Friday morning ahead of the Barclays Premier League match at Hull on Monday night. When asked what he thought of Mourinho’s comments, Wenger replied: “The biggest thing for a manager is to respect other managers. Some people have to improve on that.” Asked if Mourinho should conduct himself with more dignity, the Arsenal manager answered: “Look, everybody lives with his own internal problems and I live with mine. That’s enough.” Chelsea held a press conference later on Friday ahead of the match with Crystal Palace on Sunday, when they could seal the championship. Mourinho was given the chance to respond to Wenger’s earlier statements, but waved away any questions on the matter. Wenger has endured his fair share of touchline bust-ups down the years, the fiery relationship with former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson the subject of many a back page. The 65-year-old, though, believes coaches must eventually put a distance between professional and personal disagreements. He added: “You can have incidents with other managers sometimes. It gets a bit heated when you fight directly with them, but in the end I believe time heals and the important thing is to respect each other as much as you can.” Failure to beat Chelsea effectively ended any already slim hopes of a late title push, the Gunners now some 13 points off the pace after the Blues won at Leicester in midweek, although with a match still in hand. Arsenal could be down to fourth place by the time they kick off at Hull on Monday night. Wenger was asked if he felt the deficit was a fair reflection of the difference between the two sides, with Arsenal having enjoyed a superb run of form in 2015 following a poor start. “That is always very difficult to say because when you fight for the championship, you win some games because you smell you can do it, not because you’re fourth or fifth. It doesn’t always represent the value of the team,” the Arsenal boss said. “The gap is a gap and they have been more consistent than us from the start of the game. They had a very strong start and that kept them going until the end.” Wenger has a near full-strength squad to choose from, with full-back Mathieu Debuchy doubtful because of a hamstring problem. Midfielders Abou Diaby and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could also come back into contention before the end of the season, along with captain Mikel Arteta. “He makes progress week by week, but needs more time,” said Wenger, who expects both Arteta and Tomas Rosicky to agree new deals. Arsenal have been linked with a summer move for an experienced goalkeeper, including Chelsea veteran Petr Cech. Wenger, though, indicated that was an area which he had confidence already. “I believe in the goalkeepers I have,” added the Arsenal boss. “I believe that (Wojciech) Szczesny is a very good goalkeeper and (David) Ospina has come in and done a fantastic job. “You look at the numbers in the Premier League and who is top of all the goalkeepers and you will see it is Ospina.” Press Association Some Gunners fans chanted “boring, boring Chelsea” during last weekend’s goalless draw at the Emirates Stadium, which moved the Blues a step closer to the Premier League title for the first time since 2010. In his post-match press conference, Chelsea manager Mourinho responded by turning the tables back on Arsenal, who last won the English top flight with the ‘Invincibles’ of 2003-2004.
(REUTERS)-German tennis has responded with outrage after the United States Tennis Association (USTA) made the embarrassing error of playing the Nazi-era version of Germany’s national anthem during a Fed Cup tie in Hawaii.The version played included the first stanza, beginning “Deutschland, Deutschland uber alles,” which was used as Nazi propaganda. It was dropped after World War Two.“I thought it was the epitome of ignorance, and I’ve never felt more disrespected in my whole life, let alone in Fed Cup,” Germany’s Andrea Petkovic said, adding that she considered walking off court before the singles match against Alison Riske.She later said her first comments had been somewhat emotional but that was because the incident happened before her game and she was left stunned.“We were left shocked and did not know how to react,” Petkovic said.German team coach Barbara Ritter said the mistake was “an absolute scandal, a disrespectful incident and inexcusable”.German tennis federation chief Ulrich Klaus said his American counterpart had apologised for the mistake.“Our American hosts at the Fed Cup opening in Hawaii made a mistake that should not happen,” Klaus said in a statement.“The fact that in the year 2017 a wrong anthem can be played that is associated with the horror of the past was for players and staff and the officials present both shocking and disturbing.”“The USTA through its president Katrina Adams has apologised officially in writing and in person and deeply regrets the blunder.”Riske won the opening rubber to give the U.S. a 1-0 lead. Bad weather prevented any further play on the opening day of the tie.
