The last weekend of this year’s New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival is in full swing, with the Fairgrounds packed with performances by dozens of artists each day and the city alive with late-night performances running well beyond after the sun comes up. Yesterday, saw an abundance of incredible musicians grace the various stages across the Crescent City on Cinco De Mayo following the end of Friday’s official Jazz Fest performances for the day, and luckily, photographer Dave Vann was there to capture some of the action as it went down.As always, Jazz Fest Late Nights are expansive, and no amount of coverage could truly do the bounty of musical collaborations across the city justice, so we’ll just give you a taste of the musical insanity that was going down across the city. At the Orpheum Theater, Austin’s four-piece rock group White Denim took to the stage early, putting on a lively performance that got folks primed for Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe. Denson and his Tiny Universe compadres planned a special performance in store—their tribute to The Rolling Stones’ Exile On Main St. (a fitting tribute considering that Denson himself joined The Rolling Stones as a touring member back in 2014) with the group’s take New Orleans take on the classic album dubbed Exile On Bourbon St.—for the fans who made it out.Across the way, The Howlin’ Wolf was going off with the 15th Annual Bayou Rendezvous underway since 9 p.m. and no plans of stopping until after breakfast was served this morning. In addition to the all-star super-groups gathered for the evening to headline the event—Dr. Klaw featuring the Shady Horns and the Bayou Rendezvous All-Stars—a number of other big names were rounding out the other seven performance slots across the event’s two stages. In the wee hours of the morning, Orgone and Lebo And Friends—brought together by Dan Lebowitz of ALO and Steve Kimock fame and featuring Steve Adams (ALO, Nicki Bluhm), Stu Allen (JGB Band, Phil Lesh), and Jay Lane (Ratdog, Primus)—were just starting their night around 4 AM.

Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York The highest court in New York State has denied a motion requesting a re-do of arguments in an appeal of a former Nassau County police commander’s conviction for covering up a burglary.The ruling Tuesday came three months after the state Court of Appeals upheld a lower appeals court’s prior confirmation of a Nassau jury’s 2013 verdict convicting William Flanagan, the ex-Nassau police second deputy commissioner, of misconduct and conspiracy.“A jury convicted William Flanagan of official misconduct and that conviction has been upheld all the way to the state’s highest court,” Nassau County District Attorney Madaline Singas said. “I commend our investigators and prosecutors for their outstanding work holding this defendant accountable for the criminal betrayal of the trust placed in him as Deputy Police Commissioner.”Prosecutors have said Flanagan helped quash a burglary committed by Zachary Parker, the son of his friend, Gary Parker, who volunteered for and donated to the nonprofit Nassau County Police Foundation. Zachary, who was a Nassau police Ambulance Bureau intern at the time, had stolen thousands of dollars worth of electronics from his alma mater, John F. Kennedy High School, shortly before his ’09 graduation, authorities have said.Parker wasn’t arrested for the theft despite school officials repeatedly insisting that they wanted to press charges. The theft and cover-up were the subject of a ’11 Press expose, which sparked an investigation by the Nassau County District Attorney’s Office.Parker was subsequently convicted of burglary, sentenced to prison after violating his probation, and has since been released.Flanagan was among three former police officials charged in the cover-up. John Hunter, the retired Deputy Chief of Patrol, and Det. Sgt. Alan Sharpe both pleaded guilty to misconduct and were sentenced to probation in connection with the case. They were spared jail time in exchange for their pleas.Judge Mark Cohen—a Suffolk judge brought in after two Nassau judges recused themselves from the case—had sentenced Flanagan to 60 days in jail, but execution of that term had been repeatedly stayed pending the appeal. Cohen also sentenced Flanagan to five months of probation.After the February ruling, Flangan began serving his jail term and was released March 31, jail officials said. He served his time at Suffolk County jail in Riverhead because of his ties to Nassau.His attorney, Donna Aldea, declined to comment.

We received the first reactions to the proposal of the new Tourist Membership Act from the Croatian Banking Association (HUB), since according to the proposal of the new Tourist Membership Act, banks should become liable to pay tourist membership fees.The new proposal reduces the number of rates for calculating membership fees from the current 28 to 5 and deletes part of the membership fee: activities such as maritime and coastal transport of goods, operation of sports facilities, computer programming, information services, translation and interpreter services, artistic creation , hairdressing and other beauty treatment.While on the other hand, with the new proposal, banks become liable to pay membership fees in the part for income in the balance sheet from the group “income from fees and commissions” “ In the field research, we noticed that banks directly benefit from tourist traffic, because in July and August they recorded a drastic increase in ATM turnover, and the turnover of cardholders also increased. Given that their income in this segment of business increases significantly during the heart of the tourist year, it was decided to put banks on the list of activities that will pay tourist dues. pointed out the Minister of Tourism Garri Cappelli and added that the goal is a fairer model of coverage of taxpayers as well as the distribution of funds paid from membership fees.HUB: Banks in Croatia already pay the fee based on the income from exchange operations realized in the tourist place, and the new law would also pay the fee based on the total income from fees and commissions.As they point out from HUB until the moment of publication, they did not have information about the details of the new Bill on membership fees in tourist boards or that a new increase in fees for the banking industry is planned. “In principle, we can say that we do not consider it logical that banks, which do not perform a registered tourist or service activity, are expected to be subject to this levy. For a longer period of time, the tax relief of the economy has been discussed, and this Act introduces an additional levy on one branch of the economy. Banks in Croatia already pay the fee on the basis of income from exchange operations realized in a tourist place, and the new law would pay the fee on the basis of total income from fees and commissions. The law clearly implies that the legislator is a person who permanently or seasonally income from the provision of catering services, services in tourism or performing activities directly related to tourism. By extending the base to the total income from fees and commissions of banks, it would unjustifiably burden banks for those activities that are not related to the provision of services related to tourism (such as fees and commissions for credit, guarantee and similar transactions). stand out from the Croatian Association of Banks, which brings together 19 leading Croatian banks, which make up more than 97 percent of the total assets of all Croatian banks.They add that this would drastically increase the base for banks, and thus the total amount that banks pay based on the performance of their core business. According to the first calculations of HUB, the total cost of the tourist membership fee would increase 10-15 times, and consequently the regulatory cost for the banking industry would be significantly higher. As a result, the banking industry would have less room to lower interest margins and make the most favorable offer for its consumers. “Generally speaking, a long-term sustainable approach to stimulating the growth of the entire Croatian economy should primarily go in the direction of creating adequate preconditions and frameworks that will enable even better use of existing potentials of a well-capitalized, liquid and strong banking system, ie financing as many quality and profitable Instead of adopting additional measures and levies that could potentially reduce the overall credit potential of the financial sector, the creation of such an entrepreneurial framework and, consequently, the growth of the real economy will have a positive effect on revenue growth generated by the state. ” conclude from the Croatian Association of Banks.GET INVOLVED IN THE PUBLIC HEARING / / / Law on Tourist Boards and Promotion of Croatian Tourism, Law on Tourist Tax and Law on Membership Fees in Tourist Boards at Public Hearing
