Jamtronica titans The Disco Biscuits have added three new dates to their calendar, scheduling a three-night run at The Fillmore Philadelphia from February 2nd through the 4th. The group has been on fire of late, as limiting their performances to isolated multi-night runs has allowed the group to dive deeper into their catalog and explore new improvisational outlets.The run will be the Biscuits’ first shows of 2017, though the group isn’t done with 2016 just yet! Their annual Dominican Holidaze event is coming up at the beginning of December, as well as three nights at the Tabernacle in Atlanta for New Year’s. The hometown shows at the new Philly venue are sure to bring some heat during the coldest part of the year.Three day passes will go on sale via BiscoTix Today tomorrow, November 15th, at Noon ET. The full ticket on sale will take place this Friday, November 18th at Noon ET as well. You can find more information here, and see the artwork for the shows posted below.

(www.co-opfs.org). She can be reached at … Web: www.co-opfs.org Details It seems like every week some new technology – usually software – is launched that’s designed to completely change the financial services industry.With so many new software and other programs available or on the horizon, how will credit unions keep up with these innovations, and get them into the hands of their members, quickly and cost-effectively? One technology solution is the application programming interface (API).An API can facilitate integration of new features into existing applications, and it can also assist otherwise distinct applications with sharing data, which can help to integrate and enhance the functionalities of both applications.An API is a set of routines, protocols and tools for building software applications. The API specifies how software components should interact and APIs are used when programming graphical user interface (GUI) components. A good API makes it easier to develop a program by providing all the building blocks. A programmer then puts the blocks together.And, if there is one thing that is true today, it’s that people love apps. U.S. consumers download an average of 8.8 million apps per month and their usage of apps grew 76 percent between 2012 and 2013. One of the more prominent apps is Google Maps, which is an API-based program that can easily be integrated into, let’s say, a hotel or restaurant website to provide directions.A Plug-and-Play World“The role of technology in advancing the financial service industry is more critical than ever before,” Stephane Dubois, CEO of Xignite, told OpenSource.com in April 2015. “The use of APIs…is becoming increasingly common as they help to drive speed and cost-effectiveness compared to traditional legacy systems.”As new technologies come to the marketplace, credit unions must be able to offer the best of those technologies to members as quickly as possible, or they will go to a provider who will. This is especially true for mobile banking services for the modern consumer, who is always on the lookout for new and innovative advancements in technology that fit their mobile lifestyle.Along with providing access to state-of-the-art technologies, APIs are a critical solution for a credit union’s systemic operations. Their flexible and modular architecture accommodates largely seamless engagement across service channels (e.g., Google Maps and a hotel website). Specifically, the value of the API becomes increasingly important as financial technology evolves because it:Offers capabilities that are relevant to members’ needs and desires and cost-effective for credit unions to implement.Saves time and resources with fully developed, proven solutions that are customizable with a credit union’s own current lineup of apps.Helps build a reputation for the timely introduction of innovative solutions.Integrates only the solution or set of solutions appropriate for a credit union’s service menu.Offers consistency in data and structure.Introduces the latest features and functionality into an existing channel with no need to switch providers or perform a full-scale data conversion.Creates a path for adding new APIs in the future.And There’s Also BrandingThere is one other advantage to APIs that cannot be overlooked. As credit unions can quickly integrate API technology into their existing product offerings, they can retain their own brand identity, helping to keep the credit union top-of-mind to members.For all of these reasons, in August 2015 CO-OP Financial Services launched the CO-OP API Suite, a set of APIs that pave the way for credit unions to gain greater access to mobile and online banking technology. The CO-OP API Suite allows credit unions to cost-effectively expand their mobile/virtual portfolios to meet growing member demand while retaining the flexibility to add only those functions into their branded channels that work best for them.The CO-OP API Suite is led by the CardNav by CO-OP API. CardNav was unveiled in late 2014 as a standalone mobile app that lets credit union members manage their cards on the fly. The app allows members to set preferences for when, where and how their cards are used, get near real-time alerts and push notifications, and even turn their cards off or on with the touch of a finger.In addition to the CardNav API, the CO-OP API Suite offers customizable versions of CO-OP mobile/virtual products, including the new RealPay by CO-OP person-to-person payments network; CO-OP Bill Pay, remote deposit capture, Member Rewards by CO-OP and CO-OP Shared Branch and CO-OP ATM locators.Participating in an August 2015 webinar hosted by CO-OP, Tony Hildesheim, CIO for Redwood CU, Santa Rosa, Calif., stated, “With its holistic engagement, API technology makes it extremely easy to conduct financial business.”That is true for both the credit union and the member the institution seeks to service. And, we would add, APIs are another way to help credit unions create a close-knit relationship with members – as closely knit as the latest innovations into an existing solution.You can learn more about the new CO-OP API Suite here.
Breitbart.com 3 November 2015On Monday, the federal government declared itself fit for the madhouse by mandating that a Chicago high school allow a full biological male into the girls’ locker room for all purposes, including nudity. This biological male, the feds determined, was different because he thinks he is a female.The feds have ruled that the presence of a twig-and-berries in the girls’ locker room has been mandated by Title IX of the Civil Rights Act. Yes, ladies and gents and non-cisgenders: it turns out that the battle against sexism enshrined in the ill-written Title IX was actually intended to force underage young women to look at the penises and testicles of mentally ill boys.Progress.The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights spent almost two years checking out the Township High School District 211 because of the transgender “girl.” He filed a complaint with the feds in 2013 after the school refused “unrestricted access” to the girls’ locker room. The district eventually agreed to allow the boy into the girls’ room so long as he used a privacy curtain while disrobing.That wasn’t good enough. The feds determined that this still constituted discrimination. Why? As John Knight, director of the alphabet-soup LGBT and AIDS Project at the ACLU, stated, this was “blatant discrimination.” He explained (well, we think it’s a he, unless he identifies differently today):Keep up with family issues in NZ. Receive our weekly emails direct to your Inbox.It’s not voluntary; it’s mandatory for her. It’s one thing to say to all the girls, “You can choose if you want some extra privacy,” but it’s another thing to say, “You, and you alone, must use them.” That sends a pretty strong signal to her that she’s not accepted and the district does not see her as a girl.Perhaps the district does not see “her” as a “girl” because “she” is not a she, a her, or a girl. Nonetheless, the Office for Civil Rights agreed, with Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights Catherine Lhamon averring:All students deserve the opportunity to participate equally in school programs and activities – this is a basic civil right. Unfortunately, Township High School District 211 is not following the law because the district continues to deny a female student the right to use the girls’ locker room.The student is not female. But never mind that: the subjective opinion of a mentally ill person now governs a student body of some 12,000.So here, in a nutshell, is the government’s new policy with regard to sex and sexuality among youngsters:If you’re a boy who shows a picture of your penis to a girl in your class, you have likely violated both federal child pornography laws as well as local sexual harassment laws. If this happens consistently in your school, the school has violated Title IX.If you’re a boy who says he’s a girl, the girl must be placed in position to see your penis and testicles. If the school does not allow this, the school has violated Title IX.If you’re an adult who sexually touches a child with the consent of the child, you have committed a crime, since children are incapable of consent.If you’re an adult who gives a child hormone therapy or surgery to prevent normal development of the genitals, with the consent of the child, you are a hero.If this all makes sense to you, you should be working for the federal Office for Civil Rights at the Department of Education.http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/11/03/feds-rule-force-high-school-girls-undress-next-naked-boys-think-theyre-girls/
As he’s averaged 23.3 points in the three games since Williams’ defection, Lakers guard D’Angelo Russell made two 3-pointers in the final minute against Charlotte. Lakers guard Nick Young actually made a game-winning 3-pointer against the Thunder on Nov. 22 after stealing a pass directed to Williams. With increased point-guard opportunities amid Williams’ absence, Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson has averaged more points (16.3) and assists (3.3) than his season averages (13.9, 2.1).“Everybody is capable,” Russell said. “We know Lou is clutch every chance he got. We got a lot of players that are the same, but were overshined by Lou. I feel like we can build on it.”Walton said that will hinge on two variables.“One, I want to see who’s playing well that night,” Walton said. “Two, to make big shots, you have to want to take big shots.”But as D’Antoni said sarcastically, ”It’s hard to find a closer when you’re down 20.”“I’ll be nice and quit being an (smart aleck),” D’Antoni said. “They’re going to try to build up the young guys and rightly so. They’re on the right path.”Not as close as Houston, which has launched as a possible NBA championship contender with Williams’ arrival.“Obviously they’re still building for the future,” Williams said of the Lakers. “I was a little anxious to compete at a high level right away being in the latter part of my career. It worked out for both sides.”Paying duesThe Twitter message initially showed Young expressing gratitude to Williams as his teammate. Young then suggested he does not owe Williams for any unpaid bets after the Lakers traded him to the Rockets.“It doesn’t work that way,” Williams said. “When they come to Houston in a couple of weeks, he’s got to pay up.”The Lakers play in Houston on March 15. So, Williams told a reporter to inform Young that he’s “looking for him” to arrive in Texas with enough cash to clear his debt.“Metta (World Peace) owes me money, but I’m not worried about Metta,” Williams said. “Metta’s good at paying. Nick’s always late.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error LOS ANGELES >> The responsibility mostly fell on Kobe Bryant, who remained intent on taking the last shot through shooting streaks and slumps.Even with Bryant no longer in the shadows for the first time in 20 years, the Lakers, so far, haven’t used the 2016-17 season to develop their next closer. Instead, they leaned on veteran guard Lou Williams, who led the Lakers with 18.6 points off the bench and ranked among the league’s best in fourth-quarter points (7.7).The Lakers can no longer depend on Williams in crunch time after trading him last week to Houston for reserve forward Corey Brewer and a 2017 first-round pick. While the Lakers made the move to develop their young roster, will they also find a definitive closer?“It’s a challenge, but it’s fun to watch those guys out there trying to get to that next level,” Lakers coach Luke Walton said. “I think we’ll get there.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersThe Lakers (19-42) enter Friday’s game against the Boston Celtics (38-22) at Staples Center mindful that process will take longer than it took for Williams to fit in with the Rockets.Houston coach Mike D’Antoni said Williams is “a lot better player” than he initially thought after entering Wednesday’s game against the Clippers averaging 24 points on 50 percent shooting from the field and from 3-point range. While Williams’ credited D’Antoni’s free-flowing offense that centers on 3-pointers, layups and foul shots, D’Antoni contended the 30-year-old Williams “can do this for another five years.”Meanwhile, the Lakers have lost their three games since Williams’ departure for two reasons. They struggled to make games close in double-digit losses to Oklahoma City and San Antonio. The Lakers folded in the final minutes to Charlotte.“They still have a problem with scoring down the stretch. As a team they’ll have to figure out who is their go-to guy,” Williams said. “A few of them have it. But it’s a matter of collectively who they’re going to put the ball in whoever’s hands and live with that guy.”There are some candidates.
BILL FLETCHER JR.(NNPA)—The recent news about NFL Hall of Famer Tony Dorsett was more than unsettling. Having been diagnosed with the early stages of chronic encephalopathy, an illness directly related to head traumas, he feels his life slipping away from him. At the age of 59 he faces an uncertain future, yet it is a future that has confronted many football players, past and present.Dorsett was part of the group of former football players who settled with the NFL recently for $765 million in connection with conditions such as CTE that have resulted from their football years. The settlement itself was highly controversial since it underestimates the extent of damage done to football players and, in effect, let’s the NFL off the hook. Nevertheless, many former players were desperate for a settlement in order to address their on-going medical problems.Dorsett was a star among stars, someone who seemed nearly invincible in his greatness. Nevertheless, careers end and the physical damage inflicted on the players over the years takes its toll, resulting in conditions such as CTE and a shortened life-span for these modern-day gladiators.When we hear the news about former players, such as Dorsett, most of us shake our heads in both sadness and frustration…and then we turn on the next football game. We create a peculiar sort of disconnect between the reality of the injuries faced by these players, and the activity that so many of us watch on any given Sunday. We do not stop and think about the sorts of demands that we, the fans of professional football, need to place on the football industry in its entirety.The issue of safety is not one exclusive to the NFL. It really is a matter that must be addressed when high schoolers start playing and then when they work their way to college. The injuries start early and there is no scientific certainty as to how many injuries ultimately result in conditions such as CTE, not to mention countless other challenges, such as injuries to bones and joints.There comes a time when shaking our heads, as those watching the gladiators competing on Sundays, makes us complicit in the misery that many of these players face upon the end of their careers. Perhaps it is time to join with the NFL Players Association in demanding greater steps to address safety, but also appropriate medical care and long-term assistance for the players when they have moved on. To do otherwise feels no different than the equivalent of watching the gladiators do battle in the ancient Roman coliseums. The only difference seems to be that death was quicker in the coliseum. Today, we allow our modern day gladiators to end their lives slowly in misery and absent dignity.(Bill Fletcher Jr. is a senior scholar with the Institute for Policy Studies, the immediate past president of TransAfrica Forum, and the author of “They’re Bankrupting Us”—And Twenty Other Myths about Unions.

(March 11, 2015)–Fresh off the biggest win of her career, California-bred Warren’s Veneda heads a field of seven older fillies and mares set to go 1 1/8 miles in the 78th running of the Grade I, $400,000 Santa Margarita Stakes this Saturday at Santa Anita.Conditioned by Craig Lewis, Warren’s Veneda followed up on an off-track win in the 1 1/16 miles Paseana Stakes Jan. 11 with an emphatic 2 ¾ length win at the same distance in the Grade II Santa Maria Stakes on Feb. 14, which was her first graded victory. A 5-year-old mare by Affirmative, out of the Flying Continental mare More Cal Bread, Warren’s Veneda is owned by her breeder, Benjamin Warren.Although Warren’s Veneda will try a mile and one eighth for the first time Saturday, she is at the top of her game and the way she won the Santa Maria would indicate the extra sixteenth of a mile should be well within her grasp. With an overall mark of 21-7-3-5, she has earnings of $587,612.A winner of the Grade III Monmouth Oaks six starts back this past August, trainer Larry Jones’ Cassatt ships west from New Orleans on the heels of three consecutive gate to wire scores at three different tracks, having won the Zia Park Oaks on Nov. 26, the Tiffany Lass at Fairgrounds Dec. 21, and the Houston Ladies Classic on Jan. 24.A 4-year-old Kentucky-bred filly by Tapit, Cassatt appears to be the speed of the Santa Margarita field, although she could get pace pressure from Bob Baffert’s Tiz Midnight. Owned by Fox Hill Farms, Inc., Cassatt is 9-6-1-0 and has earnings of $603,033. Like the favorite, she too will try 1 1/8 miles for the first time.A close second to the mighty Beholder four starts back in Santa Anita’s Grade I Zenyatta Stakes Sept. 27, Tiz Midnight won the Grade II Bayakoa two starts back at Los Alamitos Dec. 6, but bombed on a wet fast surface as the heavy 3-5 favorite in the Paseana Stakes Jan. 11, finishing sixth, beaten 15 ½ lengths by Warren’s Veneda. A 5-year-old mare by Midnight Lute, Tiz Midnight has come back to train well for Baffert and she’ll try to rebound on dry land Saturday.Bred in Kentucky by Karl Watson and Paul Weitman, Tiz Midnight is owned by Watson, Weitman and Mike Pegram and she has an overall mark of 10-4-3-1, with earnings of $334,970.Todd Pletcher’s upstart Dame Dorothy, a 4-year-old Pennsylvania-bred daughter of Bernardini, ships west from South Florida following a two length win in the seven furlong Sunshine Millions Distaff at Gulfstream Park on Jan. 17.

Based at Palm Beach Downs training center, she has earnings of $357,460.Off at odds of 52-1, trainer Keith Desormeaux’s California-bred Uzziel was second, beaten 2 ¾ lengths by Warren’s Veneda in the Santa Maria. Well beaten two starts back in the Grade I, seven furlong La Brea Stakes Dec. 26, Uzziel has sprinter-type speed and could be dangerous contesting the early lead along with Cassatt and Tiz Midnight.A 4-year-old filly by Harlington, Uzziel is owned by her breeders, James and Tammy McKenney and will make her second start in the care of Desormeaux. She is 12-4-1-2 overall with earnings of $199,138.The complete field for the Grade I Santa Margarita Stakes, to be run as the eighth race on a nine-race card Saturday, all horses assigned 118 pounds, with jockeys in post position order: Legacy, Joe Talamo; Cassatt, Kerwin Clark; Dame Dorothy, Rafael Bejarano; Thegirlinthatsong, Mike Smith; Tiz Midnight, Martin Garcia; Uzziel, Kent Desormeaux, and Warren’s Veneda, Tyler Baze.First post time on Saturday is at 12:30 p.m. Admission gates open at 10:30 a.m.

Robin Uthappa, who hit a 39-ball 68 to help Kolkata Knight Riders beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 17 runs on Saturday, said the team now wants him to bat at No.3. (Scorecard)After a shaky start being put in to bat by visiting captain David Warner, Uthappa stemmed the rot with a brilliant 68 to help KKR post 172/6. Sunrisers Hyderabad could reach 155/6 in their allotted 20 overs with Kolkata bowlers putting on a commendable performance.”The team requires me to bat at No 3. I have taken that challenge on. It’s a very important position as well. It’s an important wicket and we need someone who is experienced and can handle that pressure to make sure that you don’t lose another wicket immediately,” Uthappa, who usually opens the batting for the men in purple, told reporters at the end of the match. Uthappa was adjudged the man-of-the-match. (KKR vs SRH: Highlights)”I wouldn’t say that the experiment is not working, because it’s just one game,” the Karnataka batsman said of opener Sunil Narine who failed on Saturday managing just six.”He is hitting the ball really well. I think it’s important for us to back him. If we don’t back players in this tournament, they trend to breed insecurity and we will back Sunil all the way. He is going to repay that faith.” (Robin Uthappa, spinners star as Kolkata Knight Riders beat Sunrisers Hyderabad to go on top)KKR were always in control of the game, Uthappa said.”At no point, we were out of the game. They never had the upper hand. We kept the momentum really well and after not getting wickets in the first six overs I thought we did really well to keep the momentum,” he pointed out. (Kolkata Knight Riders can take a lot of confidence especially after this win: Gautam Gambhir)advertisementAsked if KKR were a few runs short, Uthappa said: “We did end up with a little less than we intended to. But credit should be given to the bowlers for the way they bowled. Bhuvi bowled really well at the death and he is an extremely good death bowler. We did out best and had faith in our bowlers.”
