Hall & Oates Team With Train For First New Song In 14 Years [Listen]

first_imgIn January, it was announced that Hall & Oates–comprised of Daryl Hall and John Oates–would hit the road with Train for an extensive 40-date North American tour. Today, in anticipation of this collaborative tour, Hall & Oates have released a brand-new song called “Philly Forget Me Not”. The new tune marks the duo’s first new track in fourteen years, when the two musicians released three original tunes on 2004’s Our Kind Of Soul, an album which was mostly composed of covers of soul hits from the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s.“Philly Forget Me Not” is a collaboration with Hall & Oates’ tour co-headliners, Train. When the joint tour was announced, a press release promised that “fans can expect full sets from both Daryl Hall & John Oates and Train, followed by a show stopping joint set.” Given this, it’s likely that “Philly Forget Me Not” is a preview of what to expect from these highly anticipated joint sets.

British Steel agrees restructuring deal ‘in principle’ with TPR, PPF

first_imgLesley Titcomb, TPR chief executive, emphasised that there were still “important details to be finalised” before giving the RAA the green light.In a statement, Titcomb said: “Good progress is being made in our discussions with Tata Steel UK and the trustees about the future of the British Steel Pension Scheme.“Pension restructurings which involve an RAA are rare, and we will only approve an RAA where stringent tests are met, so that they are not abused by employers seeking to inappropriately offload their pension liabilities.“We also continue to work with Tata Steel UK and the trustee in respect of the proposal to offer members an option to transfer to a new scheme sponsored by Tata Steel UK, which may occur should the approval to the RAA be granted, or stay in the BSPS and receive PPF compensation. The successor scheme would be subject to qualifying conditions.”Johnston said in a statement on the British Steel scheme’s website: “Although the PPF is an important safeguard for pension schemes generally, the trustee [board] believes that the BSPS has sufficient assets to offer members the potential for better outcomes by enabling them to transfer to another scheme offering modified benefits.“For most scheme members, these modified benefits are expected to be of greater value than those they would otherwise receive by transferring into the PPF.“Tata Steel UK’s willingness in principle to sponsor a new scheme post-RAA, subject to conditions agreed with the BSPS trustees, paves the way to allowing members to make a choice based on their personal circumstances. Discussions are progressing constructively and we expect to be in a position to communicate the final outcome to members soon.”Pensioner members transferring to the PPF would receive benefits in full, but annual increases are capped at 2.5%. Members yet to retire receive 90% of their annual pension income, capped at £34,655.05 a year.A spokesperson for the PPF said: “Members of the scheme can be reassured that we are there to protect them throughout this process and they will be able to receive at least PPF levels of compensation, should they remain in the scheme and BSPS enter the PPF assessment period.” Tata Steel is to pump £550m (€640.8m) into the British Steel Pension Scheme (BSPS) as part of a major restructuring agreed in principle with trustees and the UK regulator.“Discussions are progressing constructively and we expect to be in a position to communicate the final outcome to members soon.”Allan Johnston, chair of trusteesThe deal will also see the pension fund take a 33% equity stake in Tata Steel UK.The restructuring will take the form of a regulated apportionment arrangement (RAA), an option the BSPS trustee board has been advocating since Tata Steel first sought to cut its pension costs. While far from finalised, the RAA signals a landmark moment for UK defined benefit pension schemes, given the high-profile nature of the case.Both the Pensions Regulator (TPR) and the Pension Protection Fund (PPF) said the agreement met their published principles for allowing an RAA.Crucially, this included the two organisations agreeing that Tata Steel UK was facing insolvency if its pension costs were not addressed.However, the arrangement is still subject to a 28-day approval period as the regulator and the PPF analyse the details.As part of the deal, and subject to approvals from TPR, Tata Steel UK will sponsor a new scheme, to be set up using assets from the existing BSPS. No details have been agreed, but BSPS’s trustee board said the new scheme would offer “modified benefits”.BSPS members would be given the option of moving to the new scheme, or remaining with the original scheme, which will transfer to the PPF.This new scheme is subject to qualifying conditions set by TPR. If these are not met, the full £15bn scheme would transfer to the PPF. Allan Johnston, chair of trustees, maintained that “most” members would be better off in the new arrangement.“Pension restructurings which involve an RAA are rare, and we will only approve an RAA where stringent tests are met.”Lesley Titcomb, chief executive, TPRlast_img read more

Charles City nurse anesthetist pleads guilty in painkiller case

first_imgCHARLES CITY — A Charles City nurse anesthetist has pleaded guilty to tampering with opioid painkillers.US District Court records show Christopher West has also pleaded guilty to obtaining a controlled substance by deception.West was accused of ordering extra painkillers so he could use the leftovers. Prosecutors also say West reported several times that painkiller vials broke when he dropped his anesthesia kit at the Floyd County Medical Center in Charles City. Prosecutors say he actually stole the vials and used the painkillers himself.Hospital officials who’d grown suspicious of West last year also checked a supply of painkiller vials and ampoules and found they’d been opened, the painkiller replaced with saline and then glued back together.West faces ten years in prison on the tampering charge and four years on the drug charge when he’s sentenced at a later date.last_img read more
