first_imgTedeschi Trucks Band has a treat in store for fans this morning, with the official announcement of a brand new live album and concert film. Dubbed Live From The Fox Oakland, the film and audio were recorded on September 9th during the band’s two-night stand at The Fox Theater in Oakland, CA. The concert film and audio will capture seventeen live tracks from that evening’s performance at the Fox, mixed to perfection using a vintage Neve console for full 5.1 surround sound.This album has been in the works for a long time coming, as Derek Trucks had mentioned it on several occasions in interview conversations. Trucks explains in the new press release, “we’ve been wanting to properly document the progress of this band for a while and it really felt like we were hitting our stride and firing on all cylinders last fall.” Susan Tedeschi adds, “it was special capturing the live performance from Oakland. The audience was great and the band played with passion. I am thankful we captured the band at this moment in time.”The movie itself, in addition to presenting the glory that is Tedeschi Trucks Band live in concert, will also contain behind-the-scenes footage from the band and interviews with Marc Maron and David Fricke. Clearly, we are not the only one’s excited about this new project, as David Fricke noted that Live From The Fox Oakland is “an authentic, widescreen group portrait . . . simply the truth of what happened, in all of its shared glory” within the liner notes.Live From The Fox Oakland is due out on March 17th. You can watch the band’s performance of Derek and the Dominos’ “Keep on Growing” from The Fox to get stoked on this upcoming live release.The full trailer for the release can also be watched below.Pre-order information can be found here, and the full tracklist and album artwork can be seen below.Live From The Fox Oakland Tracklist1.

Livelier pension scheme bulk annuity business ahead, says consultancy

first_imgBulk annuity activity by UK pension schemes is likely to pick up after a relatively slow start to the year that instead saw strong deal flow driven by insurers’ appetite to re-insure risk, according to consultancy Aon Hewitt.Bulk annuity transactions worth around £2.7bn (€4.6bn) were placed in the first half of 2016, compared with £4.4bn in the same period in 2015, it said.This is partly because new auctions need to develop after “a lot” of business was placed in the last quarter of 2015, according to the consultancy.However, it noted that the second half of the year has got off to a strong start in the risk settlement market, citing deals such as buy-ins by ICI and Pilkington pension schemes and a longevity swap by the UK’s electricity sector pension fund. Like other market participants, it said that bulk annuity pricing is favourable for pension schemes.Still, it noted that in the first half of the year much of the risk settlement deal flow in the first half of the year has been from the insurance market rather than from high levels of activity from pension schemes directly.According to Aon Hewitt, this insurer-driven business involved longevity reinsurance deals and back-book of annuity business.The latter is where insurers purchase blocks of in-force annuities as some insurers decide they would prefer to shed their exposure to annuities in light of the Solvency II framework.Including deals involving company pension schemes, a total of around £12.1bn of bulk policies were transacted in the first half of the year, according to the consultancy.It said that there remains “substantial” market capacity for pension schemes to transfer risk despite the back-book, and that the hope is that the exit from the UK bulk annuity market by Prudential “will not impact heavily on pricing”.Looking ahead to 10 years from now, consultancy Hymans Robertson last week said that the bulk annuity market is set to experience a “capacity crunch”.last_img read more

UK Supreme Court rules suspension of Parliament was illegal

first_imgJohnson, who is in New York for the U.N. General Assembly, has refused to say whether he will resign if he is found to have broken the law, or will seek to shut down Parliament again.The decision followed three days of hearings last week before a panel of 11 judges.The court rejected the government’s assertions that the decision to suspend Parliament until Oct. 14 was routine and not related to Brexit. It claimed that under Britain’s unwritten constitution, it is a matter for politicians, not courts, to decide.The government’s opponents argue that Johnson illegally shut down Parliament just weeks before the country is due to leave the 28-nation bloc for the “improper purpose” of dodging lawmakers’ scrutiny of his Brexit plans.They also accused Johnson of misleading the queen, whose formal approval was needed to suspend the legislature.Johnson and Parliament have been at odds since he took power in July with the determination to take Britain out of the EU on Oct. 31 with or without a divorce deal with Europe.___Jill Lawless reported from New York. LONDON — In a major blow to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Britain’s highest court ruled Tuesday that his decision to suspend Parliament for five weeks in the crucial countdown to the country’s Brexit deadline was illegal.The unanimous Supreme Court ruling declared the order to suspend Parliament “void and of no effect.”Supreme Court President Brenda Hale said the suspension “was unlawful because it had the effect of frustrating or preventing the ability of Parliament to carry out its constitutional functions without reasonable justification.”She said the court’s decision means Parliament was never legally suspended and is technically still sitting.In this nation without a written constitution, the case marked a rare confrontation between the prime minister, the courts and Parliament over their rights and responsibilities.It revolved around whether Johnson acted lawfully when he advised the queen to suspend Parliament for five weeks during a crucial time frame before the Oct. 31 Brexit deadline when Britain is scheduled to leave the European Union.last_img read more

BOOK REDISCOVERS BAHAMAS HERITAGE TO REVEAL NATIONAL IDENTITY AND PURPOSE

first_img Related Items:bahamas, Captain Bethel, lucayans, tellis bethel, turks and caicos islands Recommended for you Hurricane Jose Not A Threat to The Bahamas, For Now Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppNassau, Bahamas DEC 21, 2014 – Tellis Bethel has just released his latest book, ‘The Lucayan Sea: Birthplace of the Modern Americas.’ A naval officer by profession, Captain Bethel uncovers fresh insights concerning the rich heritage of The Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands to unveil a hidden identity, purpose and destiny for the people of these islands at a critical juncture in their history. His timely research explores the plight of the indigenous Lucayans and the impact of world-changing events that originated from the shores of the Bahama chain of islands at the dawning of the modern Americas.The peaceful Lucayans were an offshoot of an ancient migration that trekked eastward across Asia into North America. They were the first to settle the Bahama Islands, the first to welcome Italian explorer Christopher Columbus to the Americas in 1492, and the first to suffer total genocide at the beginning of a new era. Through this tragic episode and the historic events that followed, Captain Bethel reveals an ‘inherent responsibility’ for the inhabitants of these islands that, if fulfilled, would foster peace, security and prosperity for generations to come.Like a maritime explorer of old, Captain Bethel takes readers on a voyage to ‘rediscover’ the New World of the Americas through the extraordinary heritage of the Bahama Islands and the peoples who inhabited them. As readers journey through the pages of this eye-opening book, they will discover:• An ancient quest that culminated in the Bahama chain.• The birthplace of the modern Americas.• A leadership role that modern-day Bahamians and Turks and Caicos Islanders were meant to play within the Americas and the wider world.• An inherent responsibility bestowed upon today’s inhabitants of The Bahamas and The Turks and Caicos Islands, and the many visitors to their shores as a result of the Lucayan genocide.• A life-enriching identity for the people of The Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands in light of their history, geography and culture.• A proposed name for the waters surrounding the Bahama chain as a lasting tribute to the Lucayan legacy, and a reminder for all to help make the world a more peaceful place.Now available online at Amazon.com (hard copy and kindle) and Barnes and Noble (hard copy), The Lucayan Sea: Birthplace of the Modern Americas will soon be available at bookstores in The Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands.ABOUT The Author:Born in Nassau, Bahamas, Captain Tellis Bethel is a British-trained naval officer, currently serving in the Royal Bahamas Defence Force as Deputy Commander Defence Force. His unique insights about the rich heritage of the Bahama Island chain speak to an identity, purpose and destiny for the people of these islands that are fundamental to their peace, security and prosperity. A graduate of the Britannia Naval College in Devon, England, Captain Bethel has a Master of Arts degree in Leading Innovation and Change from York St. John University, York, England.
