The phrase “Never Miss A Sunday Show” rang true, especially for this historical WSP performance.Four songs into their set led to an explosive surprise for the loyal fanbase. While executing their 1991 tune “The Last Straw,” Jimmy Herring used his guitar to signal a subtle segue toward what turned into a ten-minute version of The Allman Brothers Band classic “Mountain Jam.” While the Panic has played a full “Mountain Jam” before, it hadn’t been done since 1988, a full 2,744 shows ago. This marks the band’s biggest bust out in their 30-year career.The song choice, whether planned in advance or not, comes close to home for members of Widespread Panic. With Jimmy Herring having played with ABB in the summer of 2000, remaining a frequent collaborator since, and with drummer Duane Trucks, nephew of original ABB drummer Butch Trucks, brother to guitarist Derek Trucks, and another frequent inhabitant of the ABB drum kit, there was enough blood on the stage to resonate with fans of either southern rock band. While the Allman Brothers’ version of the song went on for sometimes up to an hour, this ten minute bust out will surely be remembered in WSP history for years to come.Enjoy the audio of “The Last Straw” > “Mountain Jam” in the clip below, courtesy of taper Todd Hodulik via PanicStream:last_img read more

More than half of CU CEOs are female: CUNA research

first_img continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr More than half (52%) of credit union CEOs are female, according to CUNA research, compared with only 5% of commercial bank and 6% of Fortune 500 CEOs. This is according to a recently released CUNA policy analysis issue brief showing the results of its research into CEO gender.“CUNA and the credit union system strongly value diversity and inclusion, and our vigorous research into the subject shows that the credit union system lives up to these principles,” said CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle. “Females are significantly underrepresented in management positions in the financial services industry, so we’re proud that credit unions create and sustain opportunities for female leaders to serve their members and communities.”CUNA’s research also found that even when accounting for institution size, credit unions have significantly more female representation in leadership roles. For example, at institutions between $1 billion and $3 billion in assets, 14.2% of credit union CEOs are female, compared to 3.6% of bank CEOs.last_img read more

The government and people of Jamaica extend thanks to the government and people of the Peoples Republic China for their generosity and longstanding friendship,” the Permanent Secretary said.He added that the relationship has allowed several Jamaicans to have an improved quality of life through restoration of vision and a happier life.For his part, Chinese Ambassador to Jamaica, Tian Qi said the cooperation in the health, is one of the major areas of partnership between Jamaica and China.“Our cooperation is comprehensive and mutually beneficial in nature and with this second Bright Journey, they will perform at least 500 cataract surgeries for patients here and restore their sight.
