Last night, Phil Lesh hosted a special Terrapin All-Stars performance at his own Terrapin Crossroads venue, performing as part of a benefit concert event for Unbroken Chain. The show itself saw Lesh team up with some great musicians, including Anders Osborne, Scott Law, Jason Crosby, Ezra Lipp, and Cochrane McMillan.The one set performance kicked off with a cover of Neil Young’s “Rockin’ In The Free World,” and featured a number of Grateful Dead classics like “Sugaree,” “Brown Eyed Women,” “Eyes of The World,” “Fire On The Mountain,” and the traditional “I Know You Rider.” The set also featured Van Morrison’s “And It Stoned Me,” as well as Rolling Stones’ “Midnight Rambler.” Osborne got a chance to show off his originals as well, with versions of “Wind” and “Burning On The Inside.”For fans of Anders Osborne, be sure to catch him next weekend in New York, NY, when he plays back-to-back performances on June 17th and 18th. Osborne will go acoustic on the first night, and will b e joined by his full electric band on night two.

According to Trump, the meeting was Cuomo’s idea.New York has been the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in the United States. The president said of the governor, “believe it or not — we get along.”Trump and Cuomo have had a hot-and-cold dynamic during the COVID-19 outbreak, sometimes trading barbs, while at other times appearing somewhat conciliatory.WNYNewsNow asked Congressman Tom Reed during his teleconference Tuesday morning what he’d like to see as a result of the meeting from his perspective as a New York Representative. Reed says it’ll be important for both officials to put aside their differences during the meeting.“I think both should hear each other out, and one of the things we do in the Problem Solvers Caucus that serves us well is that we dont just talk to each other, we listen to each other,” Reed said. “I hope that this is the sentiment and the culture of the exchange that happens there because New York has a lot to offer the rest of the nation as to the lessons of COVID-19, and by listening to each other, that experience with the problems that we face there could be cut short and prevented in other areas of the nation if it is truly given in a good faith nature to focus on the problems facing people, rather than engaging in partisan politics as the motivating factor for the meeting.”

The annual University of Georgia Cotton and Peanut Research Field Day will be held Wednesday, Sept. 7, at the UGA Tifton Campus.The field day will begin at the Gibbs Farm, a research station on William Gibbs Road in Tifton, Georgia, at 8 a.m. and will conclude at the Georgia Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village.Jared Whitaker, UGA Cooperative Extension cotton agronomist, credits the field day as being a great way for farmers and industry personnel to learn about recent developments in UGA research regarding two of Georgia’s top commodities.“The cotton and peanut teams share information on what’s happening in the industry. We provide everybody an opportunity to come together and see the research that UGA is working on,” Whitaker said.The field day consists of talks given by members of the UGA Cotton and Peanut teams, a tour of the Gibbs Farm, research presentations and lunch, when members of the Georgia Cotton Commission and Georgia Peanut Commission will provide closing remarks.Some of the topics to be covered include plant breeding, agronomy, entomology, pathology, fertility and irrigation. Whitaker said any farmer or industry consultant is invited to the field day.“A tremendous number of topics and ideas will be covered and shared, so there’s probably something for everybody in the peanut and cotton industries and also for those who just want to learn about what’s going on with cotton and peanut research at UGA in Tifton,” Whitaker said.Scott Monfort, UGA Extension peanut agronomist, said most of Georgia’s peanuts are doing well this year despite prolonged periods of drought this summer.“The irrigated crop looks pretty good, and I think we’ll be a little bit above average there,” Monfort said. “As for the nonirrigated crop, it is struggling due to a lack of rain and extreme temperatures. We are remaining hopeful that non-irrigated peanuts will bounce back, allowing Georgia growers to produce a good crop.”To reserve a space at the field day and for more information, contact Michela Rineair at 229-386-3006 or at [email protected] by Friday, Sept. 2.(Kyle Dawson is an intern on the UGA Tifton Campus.)

continue reading » Ransom is nothing new, as we know from popular culture. It is often depicted as a note in crime shows or Western movies, from a kidnapper demanding payment for the safe return of a victim taken hostage. In the age of COVID-19, ransomware is one of the biggest data security threats that companies face. When cybercriminals target businesses for ransom, their key to success is snatching something so valuable that the company is unable to operate without it. For credit unions, this is often vital member information.Cybercriminals use ransomware to employ computer system attacks so sophisticated that they can infect a company’s infrastructure and cause business to freeze. Ransomware is an insidious type of malware that encrypts data, making it indecipherable. The most prevalent attack is tricking an employee into clicking on a link or attachment in an email that allows the malware to enter the company network. This sets up the cybercriminal to demand a “ransom” – typically in bitcoin or another untraceable payment method – in exchange for unscrambling the encrypted data.Ransomware is on the rise (again) and a growing credit union threat. Why now? While the switch to remote working due to the COVID-19 pandemic has enabled credit unions to remain productive, the use of alternate system connection methods has introduced risks that did not exist within the office environment. The most prominent are security vulnerabilities in remote desktop tools and protocols. These tools, by nature, use an open source for remote access, making them more vulnerable to cyberattacks. When computers are not controlled in the office, it can increase the possibility of missed upgrades, insecure wireless networks and weak user passwords.We may want to believe that ransomware is unlikely to target our credit unions, but I am personally aware of multiple instances. At a global level, Skybox Security’s 2020 Vulnerability and Threat Trends Report finds that ransomware has thrived in the first half of the year, with a 72% increase in new samples of the file-encrypting malware.

JOHNSON CITY (WBNG) — Cancer patients battling the disease have to take extra precaution amid the coronavirus pandemic. “It’s in the back of my mind but it’s not up front yet, not something I need to stress about,” Brandy tells 12 News. Brandy Davis has been fighting Grade 4 Glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer, since September 2017. “They stay, pretty much even in the house, six feet away from me at most times. She’s (her daughter) had a couple of moments where it’s like mom I want to give you a hug, but I can’t,” Brandy says. “It can get pretty lonely. Like I said, 2 1/2 hours of just sitting there and contemplating anything that goes through my head at that particular point. I like to be kept company during that time, and I can’t right now.” For cancer patients, the coronavirus may not be their biggest worry, and Brandy says her doctors have not brought it up to her because they do not want to add more stress. “When I get to the office, they take my temperature and ask me if I’ve been sick or in contact with anybody that has been,” she says. “If I’m going to get it, I’m going to get it. I take the same thinking that I did when I was diagnosed with cancer, it happened for a reason,” Brandy told 12 News. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says COVID-19 may pose an even bigger threat to those who are immunocompromised. Davis receives avastin injections every two weeks, a form of chemotherapy she has been treating her cancer with for about two years. This treatment typically takes two and a half hours, but with extra safety measures being taken during the COVID-19 outbreak, Brandy has to spend that time alone. Brandy has two children who are also making sacrifices to keep their mother safe. Brandy only leaves her house for doctors appointments, receiving treatment at Broome Oncology. Brandy chooses to keep a positive mindset, even during the most difficult of times. Brandy receives MRI’s every few months to check on the status of her tumor, and said if she needs additional treatment or services, her doctors are there to make sure everything is taken care of amid the COVID-19 crisis. “Like” Nicole Menner on Facebook and “Follow” her on Twitter.
Drops of 10 percent in the Dow Jones Industrial Average and 9.5 percent in the S&P 500 were the worst for both since 1987. On Oct. 19, 1987, now known as “Black Monday,” the Dow crashed 22.6 percent in its biggest ever-single day decline.Wall Street’s most recent selloff comes as countries around the world grapple with how to contain the fast-moving coronavirus and its economic effects.Read also: Time-out: IDX halts trading as shares plunge 5% The velocity and depth of the drop has shocked investors accustomed to a decade of gains on Wall Street that were interrupted by only a handful of corrections.“Fear of missing out has turned into fear of the unknown,” lamented John McClain, fixed income portfolio manager at Diamond Hill Capital Management, in Columbus, Ohio. “We haven’t seen a situation like this before.”S&P 500 bear market: Bear or almost bear markets since 1966 on average have declined 31 percent before recovering. (Reuters/Refinitiv Datastream/Yardeni Research/LPL Financial).Usage: 0 (Reuters/Refinitiv Datastream/Yardeni Research/LPL Financial)The S&P 500’s rout has left it trading at under 16 times expected earnings, its lowest level since early 2019, according to Refinitiv Datastream. But that figure offers little confidence because earnings estimates for companies are likely to fall as corporations provide more details about how badly they have been hurt by the virus that broke out in China late last year and has now spread across the globe.“With a recession all but guaranteed at this point and the S&P 500 entering bear market territory today, one question worth asking is, how much is priced in?,” Bespoke Investment Group wrote in a research note.Reflecting that uncertainty, the Cboe Volatility Index , known as Wall Street’s “fear gauge,” jumped on Thursday in its biggest-ever one-day surge.“This is not an economic problem – there are ramifications of it that are economic – but the problem is this virus and the panic it is causing,” said Tim Ghriskey, chief investment strategist at Inverness Counsel in New York. “Is the panic overdone? I would say it is definitely overdone, but that doesn’t stop people from being freaked out.”That panic spread beyond stocks, with demand for dollars via the currency derivative market surging to its highest level for years in a sign that coronavirus-induced economic stress is starting to manifest itself in a broad scramble for greenback funding.Among the victims of Wall Street’s implosion is US President Donald Trump, who touted a stunning run-up in the stock market as evidence of his success in the White House. Most of those gains have now evaporated.The Trump slump: S&P rout puts Trump further behind Obama at the same time into their presidencies. (Reuters/Refinitiv Datastream).Usage: 0 (Reuters/Refinitiv Datastream)Investors are also becoming increasingly concerned that the coronavirus outbreak will hit US corporate cash flow if it keeps workers at home or prevents companies from paying employees. Bond funds have taken a hit and companies including Boeing are drawing on credit lines.Traders expect the Federal Reserve to cut interest rates again aggressively at its policy meeting next week to counter the coronavirus. That followed the Fed’s surprise 50 basis rate cut last week, which failed to stabilize markets.“We have to see coordinated fiscal and monetary policy, as well as government,” said McClain. “People need to know there’s a plan in place. This isn’t Twitter. You have got to have details.” As trading ended on Thursday in Wall Street’s worst day for three decades, shell-shocked investors had no idea how much further the market was likely to fall as the coronavirus pandemic spread fear of a global recession.A 16-day drop of almost 27 percent in the S&P 500 has left portfolios in tatters. The suspension of professional sports games, canceled conventions and half-empty restaurants has raised fears – not about whether the longest US economic expansion on record is ending – but about how deep a now presumed recession will be.“This was worse than any day in 2008. It was worse than Sept. 11. I started in 1993 and this was the most panicked market I’ve ever seen,” said Christopher Stanton, chief investment officer at Sunrise Capital Partners LLC in San Diego. “People are just trading on conjectures stacked on additional conjectures.” Topics :
