first_imgThere’s no denying the musical legacy of Dr. John, as the New Orleans-based pianist has been a fixture for well over 50 years. Dr. John’s signature honky-tonk piano playing and gravelly voice has been an inspiration on every musician, as his unique swing continues to define a genre of music. It’s no wonder that an all-star group of artists came together to celebrate John in a 2014 concert, The Musical Mojo Of Dr. John.Now, that concert is finally being released as a CD/DVD combination on October 21st. With appearances from Allen Toussaint, Anders Osborne, Bill Kreutzmann, Bruce Springsteen, Charles Neville, Aaron Neville, George Porter Jr., Jason Isbell, Irma Thomas, John Fogerty, Jimmie Vaughan, Mavis Staples, Terence Blanchard, Widespread Panic, Zigaboo Modeliste and more, this was truly an all-star celebration.Among the many performers of the night was guitarist Warren Haynes, who paid tribute to Dr. John with a cover of his 2012 song “You Lie.” Says Haynes about the track, “For an artist of that caliber to still be putting out timeless music is pretty incredible.” The song certainly holds a candle to Dr. John’s famed body of work, as you can see in the brand new video that premiered today on Ultimate Classic Rock.You can find more information about the Dr. John tribute album/DVD release on Amazon.The Musical Mojo Of Dr. John: A Celebration Of Mac & His Music TracklistingDisc 1Right Place Wrong Time – Dr. John and Bruce Springsteen (4:30)Blow Wind Blow – Jason Isbell (3:47)My Indian Red – Cyril Neville (3:32)Somebody Changed the Lock – Anders Osborne and Bill Kreutzmann (3:11)Please Send Me Someone to Love – Dr. John, Aaron Neville and Charles Neville (6:04)Junko Partner – George Porter Jr. and Zigaboo Modeliste (5:14)Since I Fell for You – Irma Thomas (3:49)Stack-A-Lee – Tab Benoit (4:13)Life – Allen Toussaint (3:09)Street People – Shannon McNally (3:32)Goodnight Irene – Dave Malone (5:54)Big Chief – Big Chief Monk Boudreaux (5:23)Disc 2Familiar Reality – Widespread Panic (9:45)You Lie – Warren Haynes (6:34)Traveling Mood – Chuck Leavell (3:53)Back by the River – Ryan Bingham (4:29)Let’s Make a Better World – John Boutté (2:46)Lay My Burden Down – Mavis Staples (5:59)New Orleans – John Fogerty (3:43)Come Rain or Come Shine – Dr. John and Terence Blanchard (6:07)I Walk on Guilded Splinters – Dr. John and Sarah Morrow (7:02)Such a Night – Dr. John and Sarah Morrow (8:27)Blue-Ray/DVDDr. John Interview (Opening Sequence)Right Place Wrong Time – Dr. John and Bruce SpringsteenBlow Wind Blow – Jason IsbellMy Indian Red – Cyril NevilleSomebody Changed the Lock – Anders Osborne and Bill KreutzmannPlease Send Me Someone to Love – Dr. John, Aaron Neville and Charles NevilleJunko Partner – George Porter Jr. and Zigaboo ModelisteSince I Fell for You – Irma ThomasStack-A-Lee – Tab BenoitStreet People – Shannon McNallyGoodnight Irene – Dave MaloneBig Chief – Big Chief Monk BoudreauxDr. John InterviewFamiliar Reality – Widespread PanicYou Lie – Warren HaynesBack by the River – Ryan BinghamLet’s Make a Better World – John BouttéLay My Burden Down – Mavis StaplesNew Orleans – John FogertyCome Rain or Come Shine – Dr. John and Terence BlanchardI Walk on Guilded Splinters – Dr. John and Sarah MorrowSuch a Night – Dr. John and Sarah MorrowBonusLife – Allen ToussaintTraveling Mood – Chuck Leavelllast_img read more

The Credit Bureau: Not nearly as cool as the FBI

first_imgWhat is a credit bureau? For one reason or another, you’ve probably heard of Equifax, TransUnion, or Experian. These are the three big credit bureaus in the United States. A credit bureau is an organization that gathers and studies a person’s credit data, which is provided to them by creditors/lending institutions. But how do they make money? Once they’ve got the data, they wrap it up in a bow and sell the information they’ve accumulated to creditors. So, when you’re applying for a loan of some kind and the powers that be need to decide what to do, the information the creditors use to make their decision is information bought from the credit bureaus. To make it clear, credit bureaus do not decide whether you get credit. They merely collect data and issue it to whatever financial institution requires it. That being said, not all the information a credit bureau has is necessarily accurate. Each year an individual has the right to request one free credit report. This is possible from an amendment made in 2003 to the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act.  You’re also entitled to a free copy of your credit report if it’s used as the basis for a negative credit decision.In fact, a study done by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in 2013 reported that one out of five individuals had an error in their credit report. In some cases, the fix to their credit report resulted in a 25-point difference in their score and in rarer cases, a 100-point difference.In sum, credit bureaus collect information about you, generate credit scores, and sell the information to financial institutions. They don’t have a say in whether you get a loan or not. Check with a credit bureau to see your reports to verify there aren’t any errors, especially if you’re trying to get a line of credit. Remember, it’s free at least once every year. 15SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Derek San Filippo Derek is a freelance writer who spends his off time either working with his rescue animals or writing children’s books.

Joseph Mariathasan: ‘An open China heralds a more beautiful spring’

first_img“A more open China heralds a more beautiful spring,” declared the Chinese ambassador to the UK, Liu Xiaoming, last week at a lecture in the new Bloomberg offices in London.What was most fascinating about his talk was what he did not mention, rather than what he did. The elephant in the room, and the name that dare not be mentioned: US president Donald Trump.In the topsy-turvy world in which we now live, China is opening its economy to free trade and globalisation, while the US has shifted to a narrower ‘America First’ policy, defined by a simplistic, mercantilist view of international trade.“A single flower does not make a spring,” Liu said. “It requires different flowers blooming together. The beauty of the world requires different countries blooming together.”  That China is willing to publicly affirm that belief shows the confidence of a nation that knows its future is going to be better than its past, and that its rising prosperity can also be an enabler for increasing the prosperity of its trading partners. Wealth creation in the world is not a zero-sum game, as America’s mercantilists may believe.For China, 2018 represents the 40th anniversary of the start of its reform process and the opening up of the Chinese economy. In 1997, its GDP represented 2% of the global economy. In 2017, at $12trn (€10trn), it represents 15% of the global economy and is already the second largest economy on the planet. It is on course to become the largest within the next generation by a factor of two or three.China may be run by a Communist leadership but, as anyone who has been to China can vouch, its economy has embraced free markets with gusto. The Chinese call it “a path of socialism with Chinese characteristics”. Four decades of reform allows a certain perspective to be had on that process.The ambassador listed three lessons to be learned. Firstly, to advance the reform process, China had to follow the trends of the times. There was no clear textbook on what should be done; they had to “cross the river by feeling the stones”. The high-speed growth of the first few decades was being abandoned in favour of high-quality growth.The low hanging fruits have all been plucked, and it is the more difficult issues of what to do with state owned assets, environmental pollution and similar issues that require more resources.Secondly, to develop further reforms, Liu argued that China needed to find out what had gone wrong in the past, and adopt a solution-led reform process.Thirdly, the success of the reform process should be judged by its impact on the population, in terms of metrics such as poverty alleviation, urbanisation and the environment, he said.At the last Party Congress it was made clear that China intended to continue its policy of opening up its economy. The ambassador said this would be done through increasing market access in financial and manufacturing sectors. China would then create a more favourable environment for investment, with more protection for intellectual capital and the break-up of monopolies.Lastly, it would focus on increasing imports, Liu said. This is clearly an area of great sensitivity for the rest of the world, particularly in the US. China will be cutting tariffs on cars and other products, but it also wants to see a relaxation of rules on technology exports – again a sensitive area for both the US and the EU.While critics complain that China has not been effectively adhering to World Trade Organisation rules, Trump’s rhetoric has put pressure on China and what we are seeing could be interpreted as a response to such criticisms.For the UK, China represents its most important trading partner in a post-Brexit world. Germany leads the EU in terms of trade with China, particularly in manufactured goods, and it is hard to see that changing any time soon.The UK does not have anything to bring out of its cupboard that is going to supplant the demand for BMWs and Mercedes. What the UK does have is a vocal and high-profile consensus with China on upholding globalisation and a multi-lateral global trading system. The US is now adopting a narrow populist and anti-China stance – with Britain at least, China can see the ability to have a very stable long-term partner, and the UK government is anxious to exploit this.Last week, the UK’s minister for trade and export promotion Rona Fairhead opened the UK’s national pavilion at the Silk Road International Expo (SRIE) in Xi’an. The UK’s largest ever trade delegation to north-west China was in attendance, promoting key sectors where the UK has strengths, particularly advanced manufacturing.China has encouraged investment in its trade routes, such as the ‘One Belt and One Road’ initiative – this event was an opportunity for UK companies to showcase their prospects for cooperation.The ambassador made reference to the “golden era” of China-UK relations that opened up after president Xi Jinping’s visit to the UK in 2015. He also suggested that Britain pay attention to China taking a number of major steps to further open up its financial sector this year.The UK cannot compete with Germany in selling cars to China, but the ambassador did proclaim that Britain had always been at the cutting edge in finance.For Britain, can it take the lead in the new opportunities that China’s reforms will bring? Post-Brexit, developing more trade with China will be a necessity, not just a daydream.last_img read more

Dominica government embarks upon massive project in the City

first_img Tweet LocalNews Dominica government embarks upon massive project in the City by: – March 30, 2012 Hon. Roosevelt Skerrit. Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has announced that his government is willing to work with various private sector entities in Roseau as it seeks to embark upon a new sidewalk project in the city.The prime minister revealed earlier this week that government will soon be erecting sidewalks in Roseau geared at controlling traffic and further enhancing the city.He also noted that government will soon construct apartment buildings in Roseau which will cost US$40 million.According to the prime minister, one of the apartments will be erected in the Boys Avenue.“The bulk of the apartments will be in Bath Estate, where the old housing division was located. Government has some couple of acres of land there. I believe it would lend itself to a very nice community there. Government has also acquired a substantial amount of land in the Boys Avenue area”.He said the intention would have been to use the Kennedy Avenue, Pound area but there is a challenge in relocating the residents of these areas.“You must build houses first to relocate these people. The intention is to acquire these buildings because a lot of the derelict buildings are owned by people. Either they are dead or out of state so we are looking to acquire them to build more apartments and extend the private sector,” he said.Meantime Prime Minister Skerrit says government will also be embarking upon drainage project in Roseau.Dominica Vibes News Share Sharing is caring!center_img Share 29 Views   one comment Sharelast_img read more
