The last day of Jam Cruise is a doozy. Music runs from noon through the night and into the morning. Within an hour or two of things winding down, you’re pulling back into the Port of Miami as the sun rises. Then, the Jam Cruise faithful, joyously sequestered for the better part of a week, scatters to the four corners of the Earth once again.Now that we’re back on dry land after Jam Cruise 17, it all feels like a blur, in the best possible way. One big, happy blur. But before we take a step back and reflect on the voyage as a whole, we still have to recount the highlights from the final day of festivities.Jam Cruise 17’s last stand featured performances by Jon Stickley Trio, a Sunday gospel set with Melvin Seals & JGB, Everyone Orchestra, Fruition, the Jennifer Hartswick Super Jam, Monophonics, Turkuaz, Southern Avenue, Kamasi Washington, Naural Selectah, Spafford, Galactic, a Jam Room Session hosted by TAUK’s Isaac Teel, a Pickin’ Lounge hosted by Leftover Salmon’s Vince Herman, a late-night set from DJ Soul Sister, and much more.You know the drill: With multiple sets running simultaneously from 12:00 p.m. on Sunday through 5:00 a.m. Monday morning, it was impossible to catch it all. However, here’s just a few of the most memorable moments from the final day of Jam Cruise 17. You can also check out recaps from Jam Cruise 17 day 1, day 2, day 3, day 4, and day 5 now to relive the magic that went down aboard the Norwegian Jade.Melvin Seals Takes Jam Cruise To ChurchEarly Sunday afternoon, the great Melvin Seals and his present-day JGB lineup got drowsy day-six spirits soaring with their joyful set on the Pool Deck. From the uplifting Karl Denson sit-in on Staple Singers classic “I’ll Take You There” to the set-closing cover of Eric Clapton‘s “Lay Down Sally”, Melvin and his crew were the perfect jolt of soulful energy to kick off Jam Cruise’s final day. As Seals mused after Denson’s appearance, “That’s what Sunday morning’s all about.” Preach, Brother Melvin…Fruition Makes A Statement On The Pool DeckUp against an all-star Everyone Orchestra session and a wild “BamBOOZIN” party with Andy Frasco & The U.N. and Leftover Salmon, Fruition’s Sunday set on the Pool Deck had some difficult schedule competition. However, those who stayed the course saw an incredibly talented band of musicians and songwriters play a standout set, even among all the many great sets played aboard the Norwegian Jade. In addition to a diverse crop of originals old and new, Fruition enlisted Turkuaz trumpeter Chris Brouwers for a remarkably true-to-form cover of The Beatles‘ “Magical Mystery Tour”. They were also joined by Jon Stickley and Lindsey Pruett of Jon Stickley Trio for some dark and dirty rock and roll improv, an impressive show of stylistic range for both of the Americana-steeped acts.After A Week Of Collabs, Jennifer Hartswick Hosts The Baddest Jam Session Of Them AllThe Jennifer Hartswick Super Jam was a highly anticipated Sunday schedule highlight throughout the week, but the actual performance exceeded even the loftiest of expectations. Over the course of the set, Hartswick’s band was rounded out by a continuous stream of Jam Cruise artists including Lyle Divinsky (The Motet), Drew Sayers (The Motet), Parris Fleming (The Motet), Skerik, Big Sam, Nikki Glaspie (The Nth Power), Kevin Scott (The Cleaners), Brandon “Taz” Niederauer, Joey Porter (The Motet), Nick Cassarino (The Nth Power) Adriyon de Leon (Matador! Soul Sounds), Shira Elias (Turkuaz), Rob Marscher (Star Kitchen), Isaac Teel (TAUK), Joel Gonzalez, Nate Edgar (The Nth Power), Nick Cassarino (The Nth Power), Garret Sayers (The Motet), Kim Dawson (Matador! Soul Sounds), Chris Littlefield (KDTU), Craig Brodhead (Turkuaz), Chris Spies (Matador! Soul Sounds), Michelangelo Carubba (Turkuaz), Sammi Garett (Turkuaz), George Porter Jr., Ryan Jalbert (The Motet), Eddie Roberts (Matador! Soul Sounds), Danny Mayer (Star Kitchen), Roosevelt Collier, Chris Chew, Leslie Mendelson, Mary Corso, Melvin Seals, Dan Lebowitz (ALO), and more. The star-studded dance party featured funky renditions of “Shake Your Booty”, “Ain’t Nobody (Loves Me Better)”, “Give It To Me Baby”, “Magic Man”, “Love The One You’re With”, “This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)”, “If I’m In Luck”, and a moving, set-closing rendition of “I Shall Be Released”. It’s a set no Jam Cruiser will surely ever forget.Southern Avenue Some Serious Guests In The Spinnaker LoungeAfter showing Jam Cruise what they could do on day two, the Memphis-based powerhouse soul-rock quintet recruited a slew of high-powered guests for their second and final set in the Spinnaker Lounge. The set saw Southern Avenue power through original numbers and crowd-pleasing covers with help from The U.N.’s Arno Bakker, Deshawn “D-Vibes” Alexander (The Cleaners, The Marcus King Band), Joe Marcinek, Roosevelt Collier, Galactic’s Shamarr Allen, and more. George Porter Jr. joined the fray to help hold down the low end on Stevie Wonder‘s “Superstition”, featuring an enthusiastically received “We Want The Funk” jam led by guitarist Ori Naftaly. Nikki Glaspie also hopped in for some dueling drums with Tikyra Jackson, who has previously noted Glaspie as one of her drumming inspirations. All told, it was a truly special set for the talented up-and-comers.Turkuaz Brings The Party To The Pool Deck, Featuring Members Of TurkuazEven though they played their first of two Jam Cruise sets back on night one, the name “Turkuaz” was on the lips of every artist and cruiser alike throughout the journey, as various members of the band lent their talents to seemingly every act on the schedule. By the time they took the stage for their Sunday evening Pool Deck set, seeing Turkuaz in their usual colors with their “home team” band was a refreshing return to form. Frontman Dave Brandwein even prompted a few laughs in commenting on the Turkuaz boat takeover, expressing his gratitude toward the musicians onstage: “We’ve got the Turkuaz Horns sitting in with us,” he joked. “We’re so grateful to have them. We weren’t sure if they’d be available, but…” Of course, it wouldn’t be a true Jam Cruise blowout without some noteworthy sit-ins, which Turkuaz delivered in kind with guest spots from Joey Porter (The Motet), Roosevelt Collier, and Brandon “Taz” Niederauer.Spafford Howls At The (Super Blood Wolf) Moon On The Pool DeckSpafford had the honor of closing down the Pool Deck on the final day, a slot with the added bonus of occurring in the open air with the Super Blood Jam Wolf Eclipse Party Moon (or whatever) going on directly overhead. The audience howled appropriately as the band took the stage in matching blue Jam Cruise windbreakers and visors and proceeded to make their improvisational intentions known with an adventurous reading of go-to cover “Mad World”. Next, Spafford welcomed young guitar prodigy Brandon “Taz” Niederauer to join in on “America”, pushing him to go further “out there” than his typically ripping though structurally boxed-in guest solo segments normally allow.After moving through “The Reprise” and “Backdoor Funk” under the glow of the moon, Spafford launched into a unique and exploratory rendition of The Grateful Dead‘s “Eyes of the World”, their first rendition of the song in more than three years. “All In” and “Minds Unchained” followed before the band welcomed out a guest horn section featuring members of The U.N., KDTU, and more for a set-closing cover of Van Morrison‘s “Cleaning Windows”.Isaac Teel & Company Tear Down The Jam RoomThe Jam Room was a nightly highlight on Jam Cruise 17 (surprise, surprise), but TAUK’s Isaac Teel raised the bar and then ripped it down with his incredible Jam Room session late Sunday night. The multitalented drummer/vocalist led a rotating band comprised of his TAUK, members of The Motet, Turkuaz, The U.N., The Nth Power, and more, propelled by the obscenely talented rhythmic one-two punch of himself and Star Kitchen drummer Marlon Lewis. The session also saw Teel welcome Kamasi Washington, Deshawn Alexander, Alison Shearer and more for soul-infused covers of pop and R&B favorites like Destiny’s Child‘s “Jumpin’, Jumpin’”, Justin Timberlake‘s “Señorita”, Thundercat‘s “Them Changes”, and more. Even after 6 days of fantastic performances, Isaac Teel’s Jam Room—the last “band” on the Jam Cruise schedule—managed to leave jaws on the floor.That’s a wrap on Jam Cruise 17. Thanks to the team at Cloud 9, to all the amazing performers and, of course, to the wonderful Jam Cruise crowd for creating an unforgettable weekend. Stay tuned for more post-event coverage and artist interviews from aboard this year’s Jam Cruise. See you next year!
FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Nikkei Asian Review:BHP Group might sell off coal assets, the mining giant’s chief hinted Tuesday, joining global peers in the move toward environmentally sustainable businesses as retail and institutional investors grow more sensitive to such issues.“We increasingly have concluded that this is not a business that is going to offer the prospects for growth and would compete for capital … compared to our other businesses,” CEO Andrew Mackenzie said on an earnings call.And while coal is not going away quickly, “the plentiful supply of energy coal, combined with a somewhat dampening in demand, as it’s going to form a smaller part of the market share going forward, means that this is a less interesting asset than others for us to invest in,” Mackenzie said.BHP owns the Mount Arthur thermal coal mine in the Australian state of New South Wales, as well as the Cerrejon project in Colombia. BHP’s thermal coal output in ownership stake terms came to 27 million tons during the fiscal year ended June, down 6% from a year earlier.The Anglo-Australian multinational projects the output to sink as far as 13% in the fiscal year ending June 2020, underscoring the extent of the downsizing. If a buyer made a generous offer for the two mines at this moment, BHP will seriously consider it, a company insider said.BHP at one point owned coal mines in South Africa and North America. It produced 73.49 million tons of thermal coal in the year ended June 2014 — nearly three times the volume of the year ended this June. Production plunged after BHP parted with South African and North American assets. Output went further south in recent years due partly to inclement weather in Colombia.More: BHP weighs pullout from coal mining as investors grow greener BHP CEO says company likely to exit coal mining business

3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Every credit card portfolio in the movement will be tested this year. Intense competition for cardholder business, changing consumer preferences and on-the-move interest rates are just a few of the trends already presenting cards teams with tough challenges, yet also unprecedented opportunity.To position themselves for success in the evolving world of credit card issuance, savvy credit unions are looking more closely at cardholder data. Coupled with skillful analytics, data from a variety of internal and external sources allows cards managers to make quick decisions with confidence. The result is an intuitive program, one that adjusts to offer customized features, benefits and perks—often before members even know they want them.Take credit lines, for example. Cardholders rarely consider asking their issuer to change what many of them perceive to be set-in-stone limits. Yet, when presented with even a modestly increased credit line, cardholder appreciation for the benefit becomes apparent.This is particularly true among credit union cardholders. That’s because cooperatives are very often on the extreme end of conservatism when it comes to extending credit. Not only does this conservatism leave worthy borrowers completely off the credit union radar; it opens the door for aggressive competitors and financial technology lenders to begin courting a credit union’s members. continue reading »

The Bahamas-registered cargo vessel Celtica Hav grounded on a stone training wall in Wales due to a lack of detailed pilotage plan.The 1984-built vessel ran into trouble in the approach channel to the River Neath with a harbour pilot on board at the time who had control of the steering and speed.According to the UK’s Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB), a detailed pilotage plan had not been made by either the ship or the pilot, and the master/pilot exchange did not cover all hazards, including that posed by the training walls.Additionally, the pilot did not have full positional awareness when Celtica Hav left the dredged channel and did not fully appreciate the risk of grounding on the training wall. The report also showed that the vessel’s electronic navigation equipment was not adequately utilised to monitor the vessel’s position and assess its progress.Following the incident, Celtica Hav was quickly re-floated and manoeuvred clear of the training wall. It suffered extensive shell plate damage to the bottom of its hull, which resulted in water ingress to several ballast tanks and flooding in the engine room.The flooding was contained using the vessel’s bilge and ballast pumps, and submersible salvage pumps provided by the harbour authority.There were no injuries to personnel and no damage to the environment.MAIB said that recommendations have been made to the Neath Port Authority (2019/101 and 2019/102) and HAV Ship Management NorRus AS (2019/103 and 2019/104) to improve the planning of pilotage and the quality of the master/pilot exchange of pilotage information.

ILOILO – Retailers are respecting theprize freeze in five northern Iloilo municipalities that declared a state ofemergency due to the devastation caused by typhoon “Ursula”, according to theDepartment of Trade and Industry (DTI) Region 6. Gov. Arthur Defensor Jr. said aprovince-wide state of calamity may be declared if data would warrant it. According to Pollentes, what should befollowed were the prevailing prices as of Nov. 24 – these were the suggestedretail prices released by DTI on October 2019 – or a month before the typhoonstruck. Hoarding is the undue accumulation ofany basic commodity beyond the normal inventory levels, or the unreasonablelimitation or refusal to dispose of, sell or distribute the stocks of any basicnecessity or prime commodity to the general public, or the unjustified takingout of any basic necessity or prime commodity from the channels ofreproduction, trade, commerce and industry.

Profiteering is the sale or offeringfor sale of any basic necessity or prime commodity at a price grossly in excessof its true worth. On the other hand, a cartel is anycombination of or agreement between two or more persons engaged in theproduction, manufacture, processing, storage, supply, distribution, marketing,sale or disposition of any basic necessity or prime commodity designed toartificially and unreasonably increase or manipulate its price./PN
