[Via WNRN Website] Last Friday, we reported about an independent radio station, WNRN, that was planning a 24-hour Phish marathon in honor of their appearance of the 2016 edition of Lockn’. The Charlottesville, VA station fulfilled their promise with 24 hours of Phish programming, with selections spanning the band’s entire career.The station only took three commercial breaks during the 24 hour period, which spanned from 6 PM on Friday, June 3rd through 6 PM on the 4th. The full list includes some iconic selections, including the band’s 2000 show in Japan, Hampton Comes Alive, some Live Phish tracks, and more. The station also does a Grateful Dead program on Saturday mornings, and used the time to play Dead music with Trey Anastasio on lead guitar (i.e. Fare Thee Well and Furthur with Anastasio from Lockn’ 2013).You can see the full setlist below.

What will higher education look like in 2050? That was the question addressed Tuesday night (Nov. 30) by Michael Crow, president of Arizona State University.“We’re at the end of the fourth wave of change in higher education,” Crow began, arguing that research universities followed the initial establishment of higher education, public colleges, and land-grant schools in the timeline of America.In less than a half-century, he said, global market competition will be at its fastest rates of change ever, with several multitrillion-dollar economies worldwide. According to a recent Pew Foundation projection, the nation’s population could reach 435 million, with a large percentage of those residents economically disadvantaged. In addition, climate change will be “meaningfully disruptive” in many parts of the world.The everyday trends seen today, such as declining performance of students at all levels, particularly in math and science, and declining wages and employment among the less educated, will only continue, Crow maintained, and are, to say the least, not contributing to fulfilling the dream of meritocratic upward mobility, quality of life, sustainable environment, and longer life spans that most Americans share.“How is it that we can have these great research universities and have negative-trending outcomes?” Crow said in a talk that was part of the Science and Democracy Lecture Series sponsored by the Harvard Kennedy School’s Program on Science, Technology & Society. “I hold the universities accountable. … We are part of the problem.”Among the “things that we do that make the things that we teach less learnable,” Crow said, are the strict separation of disciplines, academic rigidity, and conservatism, the desire of universities to emulate schools at the top of the status hierarchy, and the lack of scalability that would allow a large number of students to be educated for a small amount of money.Since 2002, when Crow took the helm at Arizona State — which he calls the “new American university” — he has led more than three dozen initiatives that aim to make the school “inclusive, scalable, fast, adaptive, challenge-focused, and willing to take risks.”Among those initiatives were a restructuring of the engineering and life sciences schools to create more linkages between disciplines; the launch of the School of Earth and Space Exploration and the School of Sustainability; the start of a Teachers College to address K-12 performance and increase the status of the Education Department at the university; and broadened access, increasing the freshman class size by 42 percent and the enrollment of students living below the poverty line by 500 percent.Universities must start, Crow noted, “by becoming self-reflective architects, figuring out what we have and what we actually need instead of what legend tells us we have to be.” Research universities today have “run their course,” he added. “Now is the time for variety.”A discussion panel afterward consisted of Cherry Murray, dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, John A. and Elizabeth S. Armstrong Professor of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and professor of physics; History Department Chair James Kloppenberg, the Charles Warren Professor of American History; and Daniel Schrag, director of the Harvard University Center for the Environment, Sturgis Hooper Professor of Geology, and professor of environmental science and engineering.During that discussion, Crow clarified and expanded on some of his points. He discussed, for example, the school’s distance-learning program, which he feels can address issues of scalability without a loss of quality. “Nearly 40 percent of undergrads are taking at least one course online,” he said, which helps the school to keep costs down while advancing interactive learning technologies.He said that Arizona State is working to increase the transfer and completion rates of community-college students, of whom only about 15 percent, historically, complete their later degrees. “We’ve built a system that will allow them to track into universities,” particularly where “culturally complex barriers” beyond finances impede even the most gifted students.
Topics : Japan also imposed the TRQ policy on Indonesia’s tropical fruit products such as fresh pineapple and banana, with the latter providing free entry for up to 1,000 metric tons per year for five years, IJEPA Annex 1 shows.Besides greater market access for export products, Made said the government was also lobbying to include travel workers into an article on the movement of natural persons, which allows entry and temporary stay permits for Indonesians workers in Japan.“As the Japanese government is currently focusing on tourism, Japan needs workers that can provide services to their tourism. We do have trained workers that could cater to that,” she said.IJEPA currently only provides entry and extendable one-year stay permits for skilled medical workers such as nurses and elderly care workers, outside of professional services workers and businesspeople, according to the agreement’s Annex 10.Indonesia has sent 622 nurses and 1,494 elderly care workers during the first 10 years of IJEPA’s implementation, Trade Ministry data shows.The ad interim charge d’affaires of the Indonesia Embassy in Tokyo, Tri Purnajaya, hopes that IJEPA would boost trade and investment between the two countries. The embassy is currently vying to establish a travel corridor for Japanese businesspeople to travel to Indonesia.“We are currently working with the Japanese government to promote easing travel restrictions, so we could facilitate more business travel between the two sides,” he said.IJEPA was implemented by the two countries in 2008 and was reviewed in 2013 based on Article 151 of the agreement, which mandates a general review in the fifth year since the agreement took effect.However, IJEPA’s general review [GR-IJEPA] negotiation effort was stalled in 2016 due to disagreements over automotive products and steel tariffs. It was then resumed in the following year, with the GR-IJEPA report concluded in 2019. The government is seeking to expand access to the Japanese market, reduce tariffs and liberalize the movement of workers in tourism through Indonesia-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement (IJEPA) renegotiations.According to the Trade Ministry’s bilateral negotiations director Ni Made Ayu Marthini, the government is focusing on expanding its market access and reviewing Japan’s Tariff Rate Quotas (TRQ) for Indonesia’s agricultural products.“In regard to market access, some of our fishery products still have higher tariffs to enter the Japanese market, including canned products. We would also like to secure the fruit market in Japan, and Japan currently implements the TRQ for Indonesia’s [products],” she said during an online webinar held by SSEK Legal Consultant on Tuesday. Greater market access for Indonesia’s products would boost trade between the two countries, Made said, as Japan is Indonesia’s third-largest export destination and second-largest import source.The total value of trade between Indonesia and Japan reached US$31.56 billion in 2019, a slight decrease from $37.44 billion in 2018, according to Trade Ministry data. Indonesia also posted a trade surplus of around $320 million in 2019.Under IJEPA, fresh and chilled fishery products from Indonesia, including salmon and trout, are excluded from tariff reduction commitments alongside canned tuna products. Meanwhile, other canned fishery products are subject to further negotiations, according to the IJEPA’s Annex 1.“We want 0 percent tariff on [canned fishery] products because we think it will be a win-win situation. Japanese consumers will have the products and there are many Japanese investors who are investing in Indonesia to produce them for the Japanese market,” Made said.
The International Accounting Standards Board has cleared an amendment to its lease accounting standard, International Financial Reporting Standard 16, that it says will ease the burden on lessees during the COVID-19 pandemic.Under the terms of the quick-fix amendment, which will apply to lease payments made up until 30 June 2021 and was issued today, lessees do not need to reassess their leasing contracts for accounting purposes – a potentially time-consuming and costly process – where a lessor varies lease payments to take account of the pandemic.The IASB published an exposure draft setting out the proposals on a shortened two-week comment period on 24 April. The board also decided during the 15 May meeting to take no further action in relation to lessor accounting. IFRS 16 requires lessees to assess each lease at inception in order to identify and recognise a separate lease liability and so-called right-of-use asset. The standard also tells lessors that they must effectively repeat this process where the terms of the lease contract change.With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, a number of lessees have negotiated reductions in their lease payments – potentially triggering a reassessment of their leases.The IASB amendment now means that they will be able to ignore lease payment forbearance where it is linked to COVID-19, subject to certain disclosures about the profit or loss effect. Reactions to the proposal were mixed in the comment letters submitted to the board, some 15 of which arrived after the end of the 14-day curtailed comment period. The CFA Institute noted that the nuances and potential implications of the proposed amendment were “[t]oo many to fully, robustly consider and evaluate in the two-week exposure period.”The group went on to remind the board that investors need to be able to understand the cash effect of the rent concessions. Another investor group, the Corporate Reporting Users Forum, however, broadly endorsed the changes. FRC chair departure news disappointsThe UK’s Financial Reporting Council (FRC) has announced that its recently appointed chairman, Simon Dingemans, is to step down from his role after serving just seven months in the role.The department for business, energy and industrial strategy is to begin the search for a successor, the audit watchdog said in a statement.According to the statement, it “had not proved possible” for Dingemans to manage potential conflicts of interest arising between the part-time role of FRC chairman and other appointments in the private sector that he was keen to pursue.“Surely the key thing was appointing someone with the passion and commitment to make the position their major job and forgo other job offers if there were a conflict?”Sharon Bowles, former MEP and ECON chairSharon Bowles, former MEP and chair of the European Parliament’s economic and monetary affairs committee, told IPE: “This is really disappointing news. “The remit was to lead the FRC out of the disaster it had become. Surely the key thing was appointing someone with the passion and commitment to make the position their major job and forgo other job offers if there were a conflict?”Bowles, who herself applied unsuccessfully for the role last year, added that it was important for the public to understand fully the details of the compromise reached over potential conflicts of interest. She added: “Meanwhile, this is another setback for the FRC that raises serious questions about the quality of the appointment process.”ESMA cautions over COVID-19 P&L presentation Separately, the European Securities and Markets Authority has issued a public statement addressing a number of issues relevant to half-yearly interim financial reporting during the COVID-19 outbreak.In a bulletin, the watchdog notes in particular that disclosures that would normally apply to full year-end accounts could also provide useful information to users of accounts in upcoming interim financial statements in light of the pandemic.It also reminds issuers of the importance of providing financial information under the Market Abuse Regulation on a timely basis – despite current difficulties.Further, the ESMA bulletin calls for “caution” in the presentation of COVID-19 related items in the profit or loss account. ESMA notes such presentation “may not faithfully present issuers’ overall financial performance, position and/or cash-flows, thus being to the detriment of users’ understanding of the financial statements”.Investors have recently complained that the so-called EBITDAC – Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortisation, and coronavirus – performance measure amounts to massaging financial results because it adds back in the economic impact of the pandemic.In an updated guidance document on so-called alternative performance measures, the UK FRC notes that such measures “are likely to be highly subjective and, therefore, potentially unreliable.”‘Integrated reporting’ council launches consultationFinally, the Integrated Reporting Council has launched a 90-day public consultation on an update to its Integrated Reporting Framework. The IIRC framework, unlike a financial reporting model, sets out to capture how a business manages six so-called capitals for success, which it has identified as financial, manufactured, intellectual, human, social, and natural capital. As such, its supporters say its remit is wider than any model focused more or less on a single metric such as the Carbon Disclosure Project or the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board model.The exposure draft is open for comment until 19 August.Read morePensions accounting: A matter of survivalIf there is one thing defined-benefit (DB) scheme sponsors and trustees can be sure of this year, the COVID-19 pandemic is going to affect not only their ability to fund schemes but also how they account for them.

Officials in Miami are reporting that a Repo man was shot while sitting in his vehicle after repossessing a vehicle moments earlier.The incident occurred around 5:30 a.m. Friday on Northwest 11th Court.According to the report, the victim, 31-year-old Petr Cherepanov, was sitting in the tow truck with his assistant 23-year-old Cristian Fernandez nearby when a suspect driving a dark gray Ford Fusion pulled into the parking lot and began shooting at the tow truck. The suspect or suspects then fled in a black Infinity Q50 which had been repossessed earlier.Cherepanov was struck by a bullet fragment but was able to drive himself to a nearby hospital. He has since been listed in stable condition. Fernandez was uninjured during the incident.Authorities are now searching for the suspects.
Quarter-final PreviewSochi, July 6: A strong and compact Croatia will fancy their chances against surprise package and hosts Russia when the two sides clash in a FIFA World Cup quarter-final tie here on Saturday.Croatia, basking in the afterglow of their golden generation of footballers, will be targeting the World Cup semi-finals for the first time since 1998 — when they made their debut as an independent nation on football’s biggest stage.In 1998, Croatia finished third in the World Cup with a team considered to be their best-ever side. If they win against Russia, this Croatian team will join them in the history books.In Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic, Croatia have arguably the best midfield in Russia and Mario Mandzukic and Ante Rebic mean they will be more forceful in attack than the Russians. Rakitic and Rakitic have also been protecting defenders Dejan Lovren and Domagoj Vida.Rebic, along with Andrej Kramaric and Ivan Perisic may feature ahead of the midfield duo of Modric and Rakitic. Mario Mandzukic will lead Croatia’s attack. In case, Croatia go with three-man midfield, one of Mateo Kovacic and Marcelo Brozovic may get a place.Until their dramatic penalty shootout win against Denmark in the last round, the Croatians hadn’t progressed past the last 16 since 2008. They will believe now they that can equal the ‘Class of 98’.Zlatko Dalic’s side showed what they got by dismantling Lionel Messi’s Argentina 3-0 during the group phase.”We have shown in this World Cup that we have the right to hope for big things. We are playing really well and we have such players that we certainly should believe can go to the very end,” defender Domagoj Vida was quoted as saying by various media outlets.Croatia will pin their hopes on Real Madrid star Modric who has possibly been the best midfielder at the tournament.Sixteen of Dalic’s squad play in Europe’s big five leagues, with Monaco goalkeeper Danijel Subasic the hero against Denmark when he saved three penalties.
