Halsted Street – Chicago, IL 60614Date:       Thursday – November 9th, 2017Time:      Doors 8pm / Show 9pmTickets:  $15adv / $20dos (Purchase tickets here) Israeli livetronica act G-Nome Project—composed of keyboardist Eyal Salomon, guitarist Shlomo Langer, bassist Zechariah Reich, and drummer Chemy Soibelman—has taken their local scene by storm, selling out venues in their hometown, all the way to Tel Aviv with their brand of electro-funk. However, the G-Nome Project does not always get the chance to make it stateside, so when they do, it’s always a treat. This fall, the group is embarking on a tour across the United States, with thirteen dates currently laid out. During this upcoming fall tour, the group will its triumphant return to Chicago, with a special performance at the Tonic Room on Thursday, November 9th. (Purchase tickets here).In an interview with L4LM earlier this year, Salomon describes the burgeoning Israeli music scene and the inherently American roots of jam music: “The Israeli music scene has actually been on an upswing. The indie scene has produced some great bands recently. Trance is huge here. So is Jazz and Pop. Here in Jerusalem, the city sponsors multiple huge pop-up street concerts each month. But that is usually all very mainstream music. I think there’s something inherently American about the jam scene. It’s not only lacking in Israel; it’s pretty much lacking everywhere in the world outside of America (and Canada). This was one of the things that inspired us to create G-Nome.” You can take a listen to the full audio of G-Nome Project’s performance at Nectar’s in Burlington, Vermont, on September 1st, 2015, to get a taste of the magic that’ll be going down in Chicago early next month. Tickets for G-Nome Project’s show at Tonic Room on Thursday, Nov. 7th are currently on-sale and can be purchased here.last_img read more

KISS your strategic planning hello…

first_img 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Here we are in late August. Our favorite TV shows are in reruns or have been replaced by a Steve Harvey game show. It is too hot to ride motorcycles or do almost anything else during daylight hours. It is the time of year when credit union leaders may start scrambling to figure out what must be done to achieve current year goals. AND, it is already time to regroup and begin thinking about next year.I apologize, about now you are probably seeing an article or blog about planning with every turn of the page… oops, please excuse me, I’m old… with every click of the mouse, but I am going to add a personal insight to the babble.The end of August means that 2017 is 2/3 over – just four more months until the annual year-end reconciliation. If you are good / lucky (choose either or both), your credit union is 2/3 or more on the way to completing 2017 initiatives and goals. If you are not on track you may be wondering why.For several years now I have been privileged to assist credit unions with strategic planning and plan execution using a form of the Balanced Scorecard[1]. In case you are not familiar with the “BSC,” it is a methodology to map strategy and manage deployment of initiatives. For organizations with multiple priorities, the “Scorecard” provides structure to assign responsibilities, measures and goals, and track performance, thereby creating a formal structure to monitor plan deployment. In my opinion, the Balanced Scorecard is a good tool. But, even a tool as good as the Balanced Scorecard cannot add hours to the day. continue reading »last_img read more

Fairfield Nodal dives into Trinidad survey work

The company did no reveal the name of the client nor the value of the contract.“FairfieldNodal’s Z700 data acquisition system is ideally suited to meet the tough environmental conditions in this region that make OBC [Ocean Bottom Cable] or streamer surveys risky. The Z700’s simplified deployment and retrieval process make navigating the difficult currents less difficult,” Fairfield said about its Z700 system.last_img read more

Benzema, Ronaldo steer Real into Club World Cup final

first_img(REUTERS) – Real Madrid reached the Club World Cup final by beating Club America 2-0 on Thursday but FIFA’s new video technology was again the talking point after Cristiano Ronaldo’s injury-time strike caused confusion.Real will meet Kashima Antlers of Japan in Sunday’s final in Yokohama, looking to become world champions for the second time in three years and earn a record 21st international title.The Spanish giants have already won 11 European Cups, three European Super Cups, two UEFA Cups, three Intercontinental Cups and one Club World Cup.Karim Benzema’s classy one-touch finish put Real ahead in first-half injury time, easing nerves after they had toiled against the Mexican side.New Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo rounded off a much stronger performance for Real after the break with a powerful low finish in the 93rd minute.“The first half was a bit difficult for us on a hard pitch and we couldn’t move the ball as we wanted to, so scoring just before the break was great for us,” said coach Zinedine Zidane.Ronaldo’s goal appeared to be ruled offside by Paraguayan referee Enrique Caceres before, in consultation with the video official, he eventually gave the goal.“We have to adapt to what (governing body) FIFA wants. The situation at the end was a bit messy. If they want to improve things with technology that’s great but it has to be clear,” added Zidane.Real initially struggled to break down the CONCACAF champions and the only opportunity before Benzema broke the deadlock was a Ronaldo header that struck the post.Zidane’s team took full control in the second half, producing a series of attacks.Benzema wasted a free header and Ronaldo saw a stinging effort saved by goalkeeper Moises Munoz.Substitute Alvaro Morata also spurned a late chance to kill off the Mexicans before Ronaldo’s stoppage-time strike.“We’re prepared for the final … it’s an important trophy for us,” said Zidane. “We’ve come a long way and the change in time zone meant we struggled to make a good start to the game.“We’re professionals, we didn’t come here to think about other competitions. We’ve got two days to rest and on Sunday we have a vital game.”last_img read more
