To honor their 20th anniversary, Umphrey’s McGee will hit New York City for a three-night run at the Beacon Theatre from January 19th through 21st, 2018. For the second night of the run, on January 20th, vinyl impresario and longtime friend of the band, Wyllys, will play an official Umphrey’s McGee after-party at The Cutting Room.Before becoming a DJ, Wyllys cut his chops as a crew member for Umphrey’s McGee, touring with the band for years across the country and overseas. It comes as no surprise that he would want to pay his respects to the band that gave him his start in the best way he knows how: a down and dirty, disco-drenched late night party. While Wyllys is known for his exclusively-vinyl DJ sets, his live band shows are another level. He typically recruits an impressive array of musicians to improvise live over his disco beats—the result is typically a fun, funky, and infectious sound.Umphrey’s McGee Announces Intimate Storytellers Show In NYCFor this edition of his live band Wyllys has put together The Will To Live, featuring an all-star cast of local New York players. Rob Compa from Dopapod will lead the charge on guitar, while Mike “Maz” Maher from Snarky Puppy will lay down his impressive trumpet skills. Those familiar with Wyllys’ NY Hustler Ensemble will recognize three alumni: former Trey Anastasio Band & New York Hieroglyphics man Peter Apfelbaum will be on percussion for the evening, while guitarist Chris Cartelli from Newton Crosby and keyboardist Zac Lasher from U-Melt will round out the all-star cast.Wyllys And The Will To Live will take the stage at The Cutting Room shortly after Umphrey’s finishes their show uptown and is sure to keep the crowd grooving deep into the night. Wyllys always has plenty of tricks up his sleeves, and you never know who might show up to perform when he is spinning! Tickets to this show are on-sale NOW at this link.

Despite great uncertainty and sudden changes that cut their senior year short, the Saint Mary’s class of 2020 had no shortage of great memories to share about their college experience as they reflected on their time as Belles. For business administration major Maggie Cloud, her favorite Saint Mary’s memory happened during her first week of freshman year. “We would play card games every night that week, and that is how I met my best friends,” she said in an email. “Since that first week, we have been inseparable, and I always remember that week as the first time I really fell in love with Saint Mary’s and it became home.”These were the moments that solidified her friendships and contributed positively to her experience at Saint Mary’s.“It was small moments like playing cards on the floor of my dorm room with my friends that really shaped my entire experience at Saint Mary’s, and I am forever grateful for that time,” Cloud said. Rebecca Strom, a humanistic studies and English writing major, said in an email that her favorite memories of college include both her earthly and supernatural college friends. “The ghost in our Le Mans dorm, Paul, liked to play Cards Against Humanity with us,” Strom said. “Sometimes, he even won.” The pandemic is not the first unprecedented circumstance the senior class experienced during their four years. Psychology major Olivia Rake’s favorite memory took place during the temporary cancellation of classes during the Polar Vortex of 2019.“It was so fun just being able to spend all that time with my best friends,” Rake said in an email. “We were living in Le Mans at the time. We spent a solid two days binge-watching shows, laughing and eating way too many snacks. It was great.”Rake said her time at Saint Mary’s was made special by the amazing people she met. “Having these close friendships has enabled me to have a ’family’ at school, and I think that’s what I will miss most,” she said. “I can’t wait to come back for football games and see all my friends again.”In addition to the extreme cold, warm weather has also contributed to many great memories for students. History and political science major Molly Donegan said in an email that her favorite memory is playing frisbee outside Le Mans.“One of my most favorite memories at SMC occurred the spring semester of my junior year,” she said. “One of my friends had a frisbee in her backpack, and it was such a beautiful day, so she suggested we go throw it around on Le Mans Green. We made our way to the iconic side of Le Mans and just threw it in a circle for a couple of hours with not a care in the world.” Donegan said experiences like this one and the welcoming community made Saint Mary’s feel like a second home for her. “The friends I’ve made here are lifelong friends,” she said. “I truly feel I am somehow a part of this giant extended family. I am going to miss barging into my friends’ rooms to see what they are going to wear on a night out and our late Steak n’ Shake outings. Most of all I’m going to miss living right down the hall from my best friends. This tight-knit community is what I’m going to miss the most.”Despite all of the changes that occurred this semester in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the traditional hooding ceremony still was a highlight for chemistry major and engineering student Andrea Ruiz-Montoya. “My favorite memory is the hooding ceremony,” she said in an email. “Even amid a global pandemic and having it virtually, the people who I cared about were there and that was enough for me.”Ruiz-Montoya spoke on behalf of her class, stating that experiencing this virtually helped provide her with the closure she needed. “I was able to speak on behalf of the class of 2020 and express our gratitude towards the people who made this possible,” she said. “Although it was last minute, I was happy to see it resonated with many people. There was something about putting my feelings into words that gave me the sense of closure a live ceremony probably wouldn’t.”Biology major Kassidy Jungles said in an email that her time at Saint Mary’s was defined by moments that made her understand what it means to be a Belle. “I have so many special memories of Saint Mary’s, but I will never forget walking over with fellow Belles to attend Domerfest,” Jungles said. “A few hours earlier, I remember saying tearful goodbyes to my parents and in a matter of hours, I felt so welcome and as though I truly belonged at SMC. When we walked past Le Mans, juniors and seniors opened their windows to display SMC posters and shouted, ‘Belle Yeah!’ to the first-year students below. In this moment, my entire college journey existed right before my eyes and I would do anything to be able to experience it all again.”Becoming a resident assistant and participating in the Study of the United States Institutes for Student Leaders (SUSI) had had a positive impact on gender and women’s studies major Genesis Vasquez’s experience, she said in an email. “I was a RA 2017-2019 and in the SUSI program summer 2018,” Vasquez said. “I met amazing people and some of my best SMC friends that have been with me through a lot of different phases in my college career and personal life. They have shaped me into the person I am today, and I thank them a lot for really having my back.”Abigail Seubert, a psychology major, said in an email that she will miss the wonderful people she has met during her time at Saint Mary’s.“The friendships I made in the first weeks of my freshman year that have become my lifelong friends,” Seubert said. “From Domerfest and dorm parties to spring breaks, sleepovers, holiday gift exchanges, wine nights, 21st birthday celebrations, all-nighters studying for exams, you name it … I’ve had my best friends by my side. I will miss living with my best friends, but I know the relationships I have formed during my four years at Saint Mary’s have foundations to last us a lifetime.”Tags: commencement 2020, dorm life, friendships, Graduation

All this week we’re handing the reigns of our Instagram account over to western North Carolina adventure photographer Mitch Bearden. One look at Mitch’s account will give you serious case of adventure envy. Wether he’s documenting a stellar sunset somewhere in the mountains of Jackson County, North Carolina or a whitewater kayaking excursion on the famed Chattooga River, Mitch perfectly captures the outdoor essence of the Blue Ridge region, particularly outdoor adventure scene in western North Carolina.“Since picking up photography as a hobby nearly a decade ago, it has always been my focus to photograph the beautiful scenery around me, wherever I am,” Mitch said. “As my skills and interests expanded, I also fell in love with photographing the people who find joy in the exploration of their surroundings. I also shoot weddings, engagements, graduation portraits, and more!”Follow along all week as we share some of Mitch’s best photos on both our Instagram timeline and our story feed, and get to know Mitch a little better by reading the short Q & A below.BRO: Your photography focuses heavily on western North Carolina. Are you originally from the area? MB: I actually grew up in the Atlanta area. From a young age I can remember taking camping trips into the mountains of North Georgia and western North Carolina a few times a year. As I grew older, the trips became more and more frequent until I moved to WNC in 2012.BRO: How did you get your start in outdoor adventure photography? MB: Initially I bought a camera to get video while whitewater kayaking all over the Southeast. From there, I realized how much more I enjoyed taking photos as opposed to video. That transferred from kayaking to all of my outdoor pursuits when I moved to the area and began exploring more around WNC.BRO: What kind of equipment are you shooting with? MB: I shoot with my Canon 6D DSLR. I also have a DJI Phantom that I use for aerial photography.BRO: What’s your favorite outdoor pursuit to photograph? MB: Whitewater kayaking. It was my first love for photography, and continues to be my favorite.BRO: What’s your favorite season for outdoor adventure shooting? MB: Summer- there are so many different flowers that bloom that bring so much color to the mountains in early and late summer. The green vegetation really feels like a rainforest.BRO: One piece of gear you won’t go into the woods without? MB: Other than my camera gear, there are very few places I’ll go outdoors without wearing my Astral Brewers. They’re so versatile and have such great traction on nearly any terrain.BRO: Favorite hike in the Blue Ridge? MB: The Art Loeb Trail is pretty incredible with a lot of great access. It can be broken into a few different day hikes or hikes in its entirety over a few days.BRO: Favorite spot for shooting fall foliage? MB: Anywhere in the Ranger District of Pisgah National Forest. There are so many great trails throughout that area with incredibly diverse ecosystems. With a huge elevation range you can shoot fall photos over a longer period of time.BRO: Any advice for budding adventure photogs just looking to get their feet wet? MB: Just get out there and shoot with whatever equipment you have available, develop your own style for photos, and just have fun with it!

“The pandemic is still accelerating,” Tedros told the virtual conference.”We know that the pandemic is much more than a health crisis, it is an economic crisis, a social crisis, and in many countries a political crisis,” he said.”Its effects will be felt for decades to come.”A vaccine remains months off at best despite several trials, while scientists are still discovering more about the virus, its symptoms and the extent to which it may have spread before being identified. “The politicization of the pandemic has exacerbated it. None of us is safe until all of us are safe.”The WHO warned last week of a new and dangerous phase of the coronavirus pandemic, with people tiring of lockdowns despite the disease’s rapid spread.The COVID-19 illness, which has now killed more than 465,000 people and infected almost nine million worldwide, is surging in the Americas and parts of Asia, even as Europe starts to ease restrictive measures. Lockdowns imposed to halt the spread of the virus have caused crippling economic damage, but the WHO says the pandemic still poses a major threat. The novel coronavirus pandemic is still accelerating and its effects will be felt for decades, the World Health Organization’s director-general told an online conference on Monday.Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a virtual health forum organized by Dubai authorities that the greatest threat facing the world is not the virus itself, but “the lack of global solidarity and global leadership”. “We cannot defeat this pandemic with a divided world,” he said.

He added that this differed from pension funds’ aspirations, “who are often already focussing on the next step, such as better apps, financial planning tools and customer service”.The consultancy further concluded that most providers found managing their IT suppliers difficult.“Making sure that a supplier fulfills all of a pension fund’s wishes is a complex game, which not only requires IT expertise, but also commercial and legal knowledge,” IJmker explained .He argued that guiding external partners would become more important, as the survey also revealed a trend toward increased outsourcing by parties still depending on internal IT systems.The survey also showed that insufficient data quality could hamper the improvement of systems and achieving golas such as setting up financial planners.According to IJmker, this doesn’t necessarily mean that a scheme’s data are wrong.“The information could be insufficiently refined, or a pension fund could have poor access to the data,” he pointed out.The study didn’t identify the participating players. However, inquiries by Dutch pensions publication Pensioen Pro in 2018, disclosed that APG, PGGM, MN and AZL needed significant adjustments to their IT systems to cope with individual pensions accrual.At the time, implementing the changes would take up to four years and costs were estimated at up to tens of millions of euros. A survey by organisational consultancy Quint has suggested that nine out of 10 Dutch pension providers are anticipating fundamental adjustments to their IT systems in the coming years.The company, which surveyed 22 providers, insurers and pension funds with in-house administration, found that they mainly aim to improve data security, following a shift to individual pensions accrual in the new pensions system, as well as make use of more flexible systems.The providers intend to achieve their goals by using cloud services through outsourcing their server operations as well as developing or purchasing new software.“Many plans target improving operational quality,” said Arno IJmker, partner at Quint. “The majority of participants in the survey cited this as the focus of their strategy.”
Also, the town has a total 52,973population based on 2015 Census of Population and 66.01 square kilometers ofland area. The conversion is primarily envisionedto promote Malay’s economic potential and spur investstments. Proposed by the Sangguniang Bayan ofthis town in 2010, the plans and consultation of the Malay cityhood with thestakeholders are already in the preliminary stages. It also has more facilities like banksand telecommunication companies, and more developed infrastructure than othertowns in this province. Caticlan Jetty Port serves the general area of the municipality of Malay, Aklan. The port is used to cross its passengers from Sibuyan Sea to Boracay Island and vice-versa. BOY RYAN ZABAL/AKEAN FORUM As part of their bid to the mission,Bautista issued Executive Order No. 54 that would establish Malay CityhoodTechnical Working Group (TWG) tasked to conduct assessment and evaluation onthe requirements of cityhood. They would also assist the Sangguniang Bayan ofthis town to craft a resolution requesting the House of Representatives aboutit. This first class municipality with 17barangays – three of them in Boracay Island – has met the requirement forlocally generated funds. However, it also needs to qualify the criteria on landarea and population before it could be converted into a city. The acting mayor will head the TWG,while Malay Legal officer Atty. Melanio Prado will act as the secretariat. The town’s bustling economy is anchoredon tourism activities in the world-famous island of Boracay, the Airport andport of Caticlan, and the ports of Sambiray, Tambisaan, Cagban and Tabon. MALAY, Aklan – This municipality isstriving for a cityhood that aims to achieve unprecedented growth and toimprove the level of local government, according to acting Malay town mayorFrolibar Bautista. Bautista aims to convert the town into acomponent city with a mission “to enhance local autonomy in its truestsense, not only by legislative enabling acts but also by administrative andorganizational reforms.” “Malay, Aklan is a class of itsown, center of trade and commerce, capable of fiscal independence, point ofconvergence of transportation, rich haven of agricultural, mineral, and other naturalresources, and a grand tourism spot of Boracay,” the EO states. Republic Act No. 9009, which amendedSection 450 of Republic Act No. 7160 (Local Government Code of 1991), requiresa population of at least 150,000, a land area of at least 100 square kilometersand a minimum of P100 million locally generated average annual income for thelast two consecutive years for a municipality or cluster of barangays to beconverted into a component city.(With areport from Akean Forum/PN)
