Dean Ween Covers His ‘Favorite Bernie Worrell Song’ With P-Funk’s Michael Hampton [Listen]

first_imgDean Ween, aka Mickey Melchiondo Jr., has been a long time fan of the Parliament-Funkadelic sound, and it’s no surprise that he was hit hard by the recent passing of keyboardist Bernie Worrell. Worrell had collaborated with Ween in the past, sitting in with the full band back in 2003 (watch here). Now, Dean Ween is honoring Worrell’s legacy in the most fitting way possible: through the music.The guitarist recruited P-Funk’s own Michael Hampton, as well as Bill Fowler and Glenn McClelland, to record a full tribute of Ween’s “favorite Bernie track,” a tune called “Liquid Sunshine.” Read Dean Ween’s comments below, and listen to this great song below.A tribute to the funkiest keyboard player to ever grace this planet, or anywhere in the known universe. I’m not even sure he was from this planet actually, a once in a lifetime master along the lines of Jimi, or Ravi Shankar.This was always my favorite Bernie track—the whole Motor Booty affair record actually. I consider it his P-Funk masterpiece, the whole damn album is the best P-Funk keyboard record to my ears. Rest in P Doctor Woo. Michael Hampton, Bill Fowler, Glenn McClelland and Deaner.last_img read more

Hong Kong orders masks indoors in public as daily cases hit record

first_imgHong Kong will extend strict social distancing measures from midnight on Wednesday, ordering masks in all indoor public areas including malls and markets, as the global financial hub reported a daily record increase of novel coronavirus cases.Hong Kong tightened social distancing measures in July after a spike of locally transmitted cases and as authorities warned about a third wave of infections.”This is the most critical time for Hong Kong. We ask citizens to be patient and stay at home as much as possible,” Health Secretary Sophia Chan said. Commenting on the spike in cases, she said people had become more relaxed and were going out more without wearing masks. The new order for masks in indoor public places would be for two weeks.Hong Kong reported 113 coronavirus cases on Wednesday, a new daily record, including 105 locally transmitted infections.Since late January, more than 2,000 people have been infected in Hong Kong, 14 of whom have died.Chan said the closure of 12 types of venues including gyms and entertainment centers would continue until July 28, as would a ban on dining in restaurants after 6 p.m. Topics :last_img read more

Consultants draw blank on latest IAS 19 amendment

first_imgThe London-based International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) has released a narrowly focused amendment to its pensions accounting standard, International Accounting Standard 19 (IAS 19), Employee Benefits.The change, the board said in a press statement, will clarify how defined benefit (DB) plan sponsors must attribute service-related pension contributions from either employees or third parties.The new requirements will take effect from 1 July 2014, with early application permitted.But pensions accounting experts contacted by IPE have drawn a blank when asked which plans would be hit by the clarification. Simon Robinson, a consultant actuary with Aon Hewitt, said: “Their narrow scope amendment takes most – perhaps all – pension plans out of the scope of this change.  I have yet to find a UK plan, for example, that will be caught by this change.”Under the new requirements, where the contributions to a DB scheme depend on the number of years’ past service, sponsors must following paragraph 70 of IAS 19 and use the same attribution method as they used for the gross benefit.However, a practical expedient built into the amendment allows sponsors to account for the contributions as a reduction in service cost in the accounting period in which service is rendered if they are independent of past service.Robinson said he would struggle to value a plan in line with the new requirements.“My primary problem is that it takes a negative DC benefit (employee contributions) and tries to apply DB accounting to it.“The process of valuing one of these plans under this approach would almost certainly be a disproportionate effort compared with any arguable benefit in terms of theoretical correctness.”Separately, a leading practitioner close to the issue agreed it was difficult to see where, if at all, the new requirements would kick in.Where they do apply, the source added, applying them in practice could prove challenging, particularly where recordkeeping is incomplete.Another major firm of actuaries told IPE the amendments were not expected to change practice among UK plan sponsors.Elsewhere on IAS 19, newly published minutes of the November 2013 International Financial Reporting Standards Interpretations Committee (IFRS IC) meeting reveal that the extent of the committee’s continuing struggle to determine which troublesome DB plans to address with its revamped IFRIC D9 project.The D9 project is a bid by the committee to address the accounting mismatch that arises when the IAS 19 discounting model to a population of troublesome contribution-based promises.The mismatch is the result of applying either a high-quality corporate bond or government bond discount rate to member benefits that are calculated by reference to the returns on different pool of assets.The November minutes note: “The Interpretations Committee acknowledged that the scope of this project might be broader than it had envisaged, specifically depending on the definition of the variable components of the plans that fall within the agreed scope.”In other tentative decisions reached during the 12 November meeting, committee members agreed benefit promises with vesting conditions and demographic risks should be within the scope of the project.But benefit promises with salary risk look set to remain outside the project scope.As for where the dividing line will fall between variable and non-variable components, the majority of committee members said they would be unhappy with any more to limit the definition of a variable component to returns based on the actual return on any plan assets.Behind that concern was the fear that any such move would leave many economically similar plans outside the scope of any interpretation and accounted for under IAS 19’s projected unit credit approach.In an interview with IPE, interpretations committee member Andrew Watchman said: “The challenge facing IFRIC is to define the scope of this third category in a way that captures the plans for which the mismatch issue is most evident and problematic, without sweeping in many other plans for which the existing model seems to work well enough.”The November 2013 IFRIC Update warns: “The Interpretations Committee acknowledged that the scope of this project might be broader than it had envisaged, specifically depending on the definition of the variable components of the plans that fall within the agreed scope.”The report continues that the committee will “discuss at a future meeting how to proceed with this project”.last_img read more
