Read his sentiments below:This was going to be Mac Miller’s year. He made a quantum leap in his music. That’s incredibly hard to do, to evolve and get better and more focused while your career is already underway. You don’t get there without a lot of work, and Mac had put the work in. I didn’t expect to play on his album the day he played some songs for me at his house, but when I heard “Small Worlds,” I gave it a short, chirpy little “yup,” which is the highest praise I can give a track. It means we don’t need to say another word, it’s going down. I grabbed the nearest guitar in the room and within a couple of hours we had finished a tune that made me so incredibly happy to have a part in, not to mention we established a nice little friendship. He was so funny I just kind of stopped typing “LOL” back in our texts. Mac was, to me, on permanent LOL status. I gave him whatever guidance I thought I had the right to, having been through the press ringer in the past and wanting him to understand that none of that noise could ever really take a bite out of the music he was about to put out.The last time I saw him, he was playing Hotel Cafe’ in Los Angeles for a crowd of 100 people. He was nervous, and honest about it with the audience. I thought that was so endearing, especially seeing as he would go on to play one of the best sets I’d seen in a very long time. His band was unreal. You gotta know that if you weren’t familiar with Mac Miller, you were about to be, whether you would have seen him at a festival, or a friend was going to catch a show and tell everyone they knew about it (like I did.) Mac put in the work. He made his best album and formed the band that was weeks away from becoming a breakout live sensation. Believe me when I say that. I send my love and support to everyone who knew him better, because what relative little I did, I just adored.[H/T Jambase]

The singer, whose dreadlocks were tightly gathered in a multi-colored headwrap, continued to sprinkle the chant into his lyrics throughout the evening, allowing a flow of loving energy to spread throughout the audience, who were all just as busy dancing furiously as the band was playing. The performance continued with a mix of simply phenomenal horn solos courtesy of saxophonists Martín Perna and Morgan Price, as well as trumpet player Jordan McLean.Fans can relive the musical magic from Friday night’s performance via the photo gallery below, courtesy of Tom Coyote.Antibalas will continue their 20th-anniversary tour with another show at Brooklyn Bowl on Saturday evening.

FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享The Bond Buyer:Ohio-based American Municipal Power Inc. says it has resolved a Securities and Exchange Commission probe triggered by the troubles of the coal-fired Prairie State Energy project in Illinois.The resolution was disclosed in an offering statement for the refunding of up to $67 million of debt tied to the project.Proceeds will refund debt sold in 2008 and 2009 to finance AMP’s share in the campus. The refunding will lower debt service requirements over the next five years to better position the project cost structure in relation to participant billings.The Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis, an environmental group that promotes renewable sources of energy, said that even after the refinancing of Prairie State bonds, the cities and towns throughout the Midwest that signed contracts to purchase power from the Prairie State plant are paying almost twice the price for power sold on the energy markets.“Some are finding themselves in a position where they are using up reserves or can’t provide money from the electric funds to support their general revenue funds,” executive director of the IEFFA Sandy Buchanan said. “For example, IEEFA found that in 2016 the city of Galion, Ohio paid $2.3 million more for power from Prairie State than it would have paid had it purchased power through the wholesale market. Even with a series of bond refinances and other measures aimed at mitigating the city’s participation in the plant, the Galion Electric Fund has used up a sizeable portion of its reserves, and is now considering whether it needs to raise electric rates.”More ($): No SEC action as probe into AMP’s Prairie State bonds concludes In Prairie State Settlement, AMP to Refund $67 Million
September 1, 2002 Regular News Ethics panel warns staff attorneys about outside employment Ethics panel warns staff attorneys about outside employment A trial court staff attorney may not moonlight in a nonlegal capacity at his spouse’s legal professional association, even if he only serves as a courthouse runner or a computer consultant, according to the Florida Trial Court Staff Attorneys Association Ethics Advisory Committee.The staff attorney also may not hold an officer’s position in his wife’s firm or own shares of stock in the legal professional association. Opinion Number 2002-01 T he Ethics Advisory Committee of the Florida Trial Court Staff Attorneys Association is charged by the association with rendering advisory opinions to staff attorneys that interpret the application of the Code of Judicial Conduct, the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar, and other relevant authorities to specific circumstances confronting or affecting staff attorneys. Its opinions are advisory only.The committee said the Florida Judicial Ethics Advisory Committee has ruled that the Florida Code of Judicial Conduct applies indirectly to law clerks, and therefore, trial court staff attorneys.The committee said a trial court staff attorney serving his wife’s firm as a courthouse runner would violate Canons 2B, 3A, and 5A(1), (2), & (3). The applicable portion of Canon 2B advises that a trial court staff attorney not use his/her position to advance his/her private interests, or the private interests of others.“The trial court staff attorney, when serving as a courthouse runner, will be seen constantly going in and out of the chambers of different judges,” the panel said. “These actions coupled with the nature of the trial court staff attorney’s duties would convey the impression that the delivering runner has free and unfettered access to any number of judges, and is in a special position to influence their decisions regarding the legal professional association’s deliveries.”Canon 3A also advises, among other things, that judicial duties take precedence over all the judge’s other activities, the panel said. So, too, should the trial court staff attorney’s research and writing duties take precedence over any outside employment responsibilities.The panel also said it could be argued that employment as a computer consultant by the spouse’s professional association could constitute the practice of law or lend itself to an unavoidable appearance of impropriety grounded in the misuse of the prestige of the judicial office.“How would employment of the trial court staff attorney in this position appear to third parties, prospective clients in particular?” the panel said. “Theoretically, it can carry with it an unofficial endorsement of the circuit’s judiciary.”The panel said the trial court staff attorney’s employment could unwittingly become the selling point for choosing representation by the spouse’s legal professional association.The panel also said ownership of “even a small to minuscule interest of stock” in a legal professional association can reasonably cast doubt as to a trial court staff attorney’s ability to carry out his/her research and writing responsibilities for the judiciary.Canon 5(D)(1)(b) advises that a trial court staff attorney, like a judge, shall not engage in financial and business dealings that would involve him/her in frequent transactions or continuing business relationships with those lawyers or other persons likely to come before the court.“The fact that the submitting trial court staff attorney would own stock in the professional association, again the amount being unimportant, involves him/her in a continuing business relationship with lawyers who would appear repeatedly before the court,” the panel said. “In addition, it can be assumed that the trial court staff attorney would often be involved in making decisions with regard to the business operations of the legal professional association.”Ownership of stock in the association would require the submitting staff attorney to recuse/disqualify himself every time an attorney from the association appeared before the court where he is specifically employed, the committee said.“Recusal or disqualification would be required, no matter the amount of stock owned, to avoid an appearance of impropriety,” the panel said.

But wanting it and having it are two different things. What one trait can help build a better team at your credit union? An annual training session? Maybe for the day. A fun team building exercise? Sorta kinda, for a few weeks. What if I told you that building ongoing synergy is as easy as being nice?The most common problem we tackle at our credit unions is buy-in from the front line. This is the place where teamwork—or the lack thereof—appears first. The root of this problem is often as simple as a culture that is not bad, but not intentionally cultivated or vision-centered.Being nice isn’t a new concept in promoting positive culture in the workplace. Stephen Covey says this in his 1989 book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: “Members of productive teams take the effort to understand each other, find a way to relate to each other, and then try to make themselves understood.” continue reading »
