STS9 Was On Another Planet As They Finished Their Two-Night Run At ACL Live [Recap / Setlist / Video]

first_imgElectronic-jam legends STS9 returned to ACL Live at The Moody Theater last night for their second and final show at the venue, and they delivered an out-of-this-world performance. The band worked through several of their treasured classics and utilized tons of transitions to put together another high-octane performance.The band opened things up with “Common Descent”, transitioning into “Worry No More” for a great opening one-two punch. “Pianoir” followed, opening up a huge segment that went into “Glogli,” and then “Vibyl,” which contained a strong tease of “The Message” by Grandmaster Flash. “Love Don’t Terrorize” followed, before the band finished off set one with “Out of This World” into “Frequencies 2>3”.Set Two started off with a fun take on “Totem.” “118” followed, before “Give and Take” and “F Word” were trotted out. “Forest Hu” was then stretched out with a jam that landed on “Rilly Wut?” STS9 then explored space with “Hubble”, before finishing up the second set with a run from “World Go Round” into “Awesome” into “The Unquestionable Supremacy of Nature”.For the encore, STS9 busted out one of their most beloved songs, “Aimlessly”, which dropped right into “Nautilus” for a few minutes. The band then fell right back into “Aimlessly”, a perfect segue that brought an excellent two nights in Austin to a close.STS9’s next stop is a two-night run at the Aragon Ballroom next weekend, February 3rd and 4th.

North Massapequa Woman’s Mysterious Death Probed

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Irene LeutjeNassau County police are asking for the public’s help in solving the mystery of a 60-year-old woman who had been missing for about a month before she was found dead about five miles from her North Massapequa home.Construction workers reportedly discovered the body in the bushes outside of a vacant, Sandy-damaged waterfront home on Ocean Avenue in Massapequa on Valentine’s Day. Police identified the woman Tuesday as Irene Luetje, a Farmingdale State College secretary known to friends and family as “Renee.”“Unfortunately at this point it’s a mystery to us why she was there, how she wound up there and ultimately how she died,” Det. Lt. John Azzata, head of the Homicide Squad, told reporters during a news conference Wednesday.Investigators said that they found no apparent trauma to the victim and there appears to be no signs of foul play, but medical examiners have yet to complete an autopsy. It wasn’t clear how long she was dead before being found.Newsday reports that Luetje’s family filed a missing person report for the woman after she neither showed up to grandniece’s birthday party Jan. 6 nor went to work the next day.What happened in the five weeks between her disappearance and discovery remains a mystery. The worker who made the find told WCBS radio that he heard rushing water and was looking for the water main when he spotted the body.Azzata said Luetje was known to take long walks, was taking medication for hypertension and doesn’t appear to have been robbed. He suggested that she could have been seeking assistance for a medical problem when she collapsed.“The campus is terribly saddened by her death,” said Kathy Coley, a college spokeswoman. “We send our deepest condolences to Irene’s family.”Homicide Squad detectives ask anyone with information regarding this person to contact them at 516-573-8800.last_img read more

The Internet of Things in retail banking

Wentzlaff joined OnApproach in 2013 as a Business Development Analyst and is now currently Director of Business Development. He is responsible for developing marketing strategies, driving prospects to … Web: www.onapproach.net Details The Internet of Things (IoT) has gained a considerable amount of hype as the “Next Big Thing” to change the world as we know it. Applications of IoT are thought by some to be limited only by the human imagination. From simply controlling your home (e.g. – lights, thermostat, etc.) with a smartphone, to life saving medical and healthcare systems, IoT is pervasive and growing rapidly.The financial services industry has recently started experiencing the IoT disruption in the form of mobile banking. While mobile banking is seen as an incredible advancement in financial services, it may only be the tip of the iceberg for the Bank (or Credit Union) of Things.In recently published whitepaper, The Bank of Things: How the Internet of Things will Transform Financial Services, Author Ian Webster of Accenture discusses what he refers to as ‘Customer 3.0.’ Much like I discussed in one of my pervious articles, Why Attracting Millennials Requires Big Data/Analytics, Webster’s ‘Customer 3.0’ is “hyper-connected, highly informed, very demanding and spoilt for choice. They expect to be engaged as individuals, and on their terms — when, where and how they want.” This new information expectation is requiring banks/credit unions to think of innovative ways to transform their data into valuable assets that provide a better customer experience.Examples of IoT in Financial Services‘Customer 3.0’ is being conditioned to expect much more information in all areas of their lives with retail banking being no exception. IoT is still in its adolescence in the financial services industries but there are several practical example of IoT in banking that do not seem far-fetched, consider the following example:Loans are a major source of revenue for financial institutions but with interest rates at historical lows, differentiating one loan from another is difficult. So how do you ensure someone uses your financial institution for their next loan? By being the first image a customer sees when deciding to make their next big purchase. With advanced geo-tracking using beacons (IoT technology), financial institutions can send out the most accurate and timely marketing alerts.Imagine walking onto a car dealership and receiving an alert from your mobile banking app that automatically tells you how much financing you’ve been approved for. Even better, the auto loan application can be completed using your smartphone and contain prepopulated data stored from previous transactions (e.g. current address). Imagine an app offering you a deal if you purchase the exact car you’re looking at. With beacon technology you can send offers such as, “Save $1,000 on that new 2015 Chevy Impala if you use Sample Federal Credit Union financing.” This may seem like a “too good to be true” scenario, but with IoT (beacons) and Big Data, this is something retail banking institutions could start doing today.Living in Harmony: Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data & AnalyticsIoT presents a tremendous opportunity for financial services, but it also presents a serious challenge. In addition to the countless new applications for internet connected banking, IoT is also expected to generate a plethora of data. This data is coming from a variety of new sources, at high-velocity and in increased volumes (also known as Big Data).“…Internet of things-related technology and services revenue is forecasted to grow from US$4.8 trillion in 2012 to US$8.9 trillion by 2020. The future is coming fast — and to capitalize on these opportunities, today’s banks need to invest in developing the ecosystems and capabilities that will drive tomorrow’s Bank of Things.” -Ian Webster, AccentureTime is of the EssenceWithout the proper technology to store, process, and analyze the data generated from Internet of things-related banking, retail banking institutions will not be able to serve ‘Customer 3.0’ in the way they desire.Failure to address the needs of ‘Customer 3.0’ will challenge the future viability of most banks and credit unions. The financial services industry is at a cross roads and needs to think about how to reinvent itself before it’s too late. There are several companies that have noticed this tremendous opportunity and have started investing in similar technology. A few of these companies worth mentioning are Apple (Apple Pay), PayPal, and Lending Club (backed by investment from Google).As we enter the era of IoT and the ensuing massive data explosion, how will your institution react? Will it sit on the sidelines and wait for the innovators of the industry or will it get ahead of the curve, start investing in Big Data/Analytics, and be one of those innovators?last_img read more
