With Dead & Company’s summer tour just weeks away, new guitarist John Mayer recently shared a fun image from the band’s previous fall run. The post features a white board that served as something of a master list, naming a total of 69 songs for the band to choose from in any given setlist. Mayer captioned the photo, saying “The white board we used for Dead & Company rehearsals last year. Still works as a master list. (We’ll be adding to it as well…)”When we took a closer look at the totals from Dead & Company’s tour, we counted a total of 95 songs, including 72 Grateful Dead originals and an additional 23 covers from the Dead’s repertoire. Mayer also recently named four songs that the band is planning on debuting this summer, which you can read here (Spoiler Alert!).Even bassist Oteil Burbridge commented on Mayer’s post, saying, “Homework for John Mayer and I from Dead & Company rehearsal last fall at TRI Studios. I’ve never learned so many songs in such a short time period…. and the list is growing!” Enjoy the list below.

Toon are currently 15th on the table, five points ahead of the drop zone.Benitez said: “We have to be realistic and understand that we will be in the bottom half during the whole season.”For me, it is almost clear and if we can be better than three teams, it will be another miracle.”It was a miracle last year. People were thinking, ‘Oh, you finished 10th…’, but with a couple fewer wins, we could have been in the bottom five, so it was a miracle.”If we do the same this year with teams spending even more money than last year, it will be a miracle.”

Speaking at a workshop on hazard resilience at the Mines and Geology Department, Hope Gardens, St. Andrew, on July 23, Mr. Williams said these approaches should be undertaken proactively. “Our challenge is to clearly mark the path that leads to the goal of reducing the impacts of hazardous events on our society and economy by enhancing the resilience of buildings and infrastructure systems in our communities. To do this, it is necessary to shift our thinking from the old way – designing and operating buildings and infrastructure as independent systems – to a new way as an integrated system,” he said. Commissioner of Mines, Leighton Williams, says resilience planning and integration are critical components to reducing the impact of hazardous events on the society and the economy. Story Highlights Commissioner of Mines, Leighton Williams, says resilience planning and integration are critical components to reducing the impact of hazardous events on the society and the economy.Speaking at a workshop on hazard resilience at the Mines and Geology Department, Hope Gardens, St. Andrew, on July 23, Mr. Williams said these approaches should be undertaken proactively.“Our challenge is to clearly mark the path that leads to the goal of reducing the impacts of hazardous events on our society and economy by enhancing the resilience of buildings and infrastructure systems in our communities. To do this, it is necessary to shift our thinking from the old way – designing and operating buildings and infrastructure as independent systems – to a new way as an integrated system,” he said.He added that resilience planning should be interwoven in a community’s social and economic systems, since they are supported by the physical infrastructure and the vital services it enables.“Providing communities with guidance to avoid disastrous consequences can make a tremendously positive difference. Helping communities to make hazard resilience an integral part of their long-term planning and development is an incredible two-for-one deal,” he said.Mr. Williams said these will not only increase resilience to disruptive events and reduce their enormous toll on people and the economy [but] it will also make communities better places to live and more desirable locations for business and industry.He pointed out that communities need actionable information and guidance to support their decision-making and their investments in resilience.“With reliable information, methods and tools, communities can assess their strengths and their vulnerabilities. They can identify their blind spots and they can develop an integrated view of what resilience looks like, so that all the key players will be involved in helping to make it a reality,” he said.In his remarks, Programme Leader, Natural Hazard Management, University of Chester, Dr. Servel Miller, said resilience to natural disasters refers to the ability to protect and save lives while reducing vulnerabilities to changes, particularly as it relates to climate change.The workshop was organised in partnership with the University of Chester and sought to bring together decision makers, community planners, policymakers and experts in making communities more hazard-resilient.

TORONTO – Canaccord Genuity’s third-quarter earnings got a major lift from a flurry of deals in the Canadian cannabis sector, which helped the investment bank see its net income rise more than 500 per cent year-over-year.The Toronto-based financial services and advisory firm reported adjusted net income before taxes of $50.3 million for the three-months ended December 31, compared to $7.8 million during the same period in 2016.That works out to earnings per share for the fiscal third quarter of $0.31, well above the $0.17 expected by analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters.It also earned revenue of $309.4 million, marking a record for the organization.“Canaccord Genuity was the leading independent investment bank in Canada for calendar 2017 by a wide margin for both number of transactions and total amount raised, and this business continues to be active with numerous transactions in the blockchain and cannabis sectors,” said its chief executive officer Dan Daviau in a letter to shareholders.Daviau said the primary driver was its capital markets division, which participated in 141 transactions globally including several large transactions in the marijuana sector for companies such as Aurora Cannabis Inc.The investment bank was also kept busy by growing interest in blockchain, participating in transactions for firms such as Global Blockchain Technologies.But financing activity was particularly brisk in the cannabis sector as firms raised cash to gear up for the legalization of the drug for recreational use in Canada later this year.Smaller investment banks such as Canaccord have been the beneficiaries of Canada’s burgeoning cannabis industry, while the country’s biggest banks — many of which have ties to the U.S. where medical pot remains illegal under federal law — have been reluctant to serve them.And in January, U.S. Attorney-General Jeff Sessions rescinded an Obama-era memo that suggested that federal lawmakers would not intervene in states where the drug is legal, which allowed legalization of the drug to flourish in several states. Sessions said he would leave it to federal prosecutors in those states, such as California, to decide how aggressively to enforce federal law.That same month, the Bank of Montreal participated in a $175-million bought deal for licensed marijuana producer Canopy Growth — which does not have any U.S. exposure — marking a big shift in policy for the country’s biggest financial institutions.Daviau said Wednesday that Canaccord is “happy” the big banks want to enter the sector.“(It) just adds further credibility to the sector, improves valuation, broadens distribution,” he told analysts on a conference call.He also noted that most of the money Canaccord makes in the cannabis sector comes from “helping little companies grow to be very big companies.”“We don’t pursue bank competition in that area,” he said. “Quite frankly, we’d welcome it. But they wouldn’t stand a chance.”Companies in this story: (TSX:CF, TSX:ACB, TSX:BMO, CSE:BLOC)
At the time, CN chief operating officer Mike Cory told analysts that the company was “catching up” in some areas where it was surprised after reducing its workforce in early 2016.CN said Monday that it has appointed CN chief marketing officer Jean-Jacques Ruest as the interim replacement for Jobin while it conducts a search for a new permanent CEO. Ruest has been with CN Rail for 22 years and has been its chief marketing officer for the last eight years.“Mr. Ruest is well known to customers and investors, and is well positioned to focus the company and its very experienced and proven team of railroaders to rapidly address operational challenges during the transition,” chairman Robert Pace said in the statement. “CN must accelerate execution of the innovation strategy articulated at our investor day last June. The board is confident this remains the right course to restore and retain industry-leading metrics and best in class customer service.” MONTREAL, Q.C. — Canadian National Railway Co. has replaced president and chief executive Luc Jobin, saying its board of directors believes the company needs a more energetic leader who will speed up execution of its strategic vision.The Montreal-based company also said it recognizes the railway has had operational and customer service challenges since last fall when it experienced what the statement called “insufficient network resiliency.”In October, the company said it was on a hiring spree because it didn’t have enough crews to handle increased demand prompted by a stronger North American economy.
