One of his latest works, Taking Another Look, saw Lewis continuing to reinvent his iconic sound.Interestingly enough, the deluxe edition of Taking Another Look features alternate takes on the songs from the album. One of the bands featured on the album was TAUK, the progressive instrumental fusion quartet based out of Long Island. “We are honored to be a part of this new record. Ramsey Lewis is giant in the Jazz community and beyond. It cannot be overstated how much his music has influenced musicians around the world for his entire career, all of us included. His music is meaningful, has soul, and has lasted the test of time. There is no one, and will never be another like him.”TAUK put their unique spin on the composition “Sharing Her Journey,” transforming the jazz classic in true TAUK fashion. Though the deluxe album was released last year, it will make its way into the digital realm this Friday!To get you excited for this new release, we have the honor of premiering TAUK’s take on this Ramsey Lewis track.

(http://www.verizonenterprise.com/DBIR/2015/?&keyword=p6922139308&gclid=CJXf_83Z-sQCFQqOaQodiIwAyw).How effectively you deal with data breaches is an increasingly important factor in determining your credit union’s bottom-line. Verizon’s report is the best I have seen when it comes to providing an objective analysis of data breach trends. Here are my takeaways from the report:Is greater information sharing the answer? One of the best ways to mitigate the negative consequences of data breaches is to get the word out about compromises as quickly as possible. We need more sharing of information. But rather than facilitating sharing within a given industry, the report concludes that greater emphasis has to be placed on sharing between industries that share common characteristics. In fact, it concludes that “our standard practice of organizing information-sharing groups and activities according to broad industries is less than optimal. It might even be counterproductive.” Greater inter-industry coordination is the type of mission that only government can facilitate and it’s fraught with a host of privacy issues. We are talking about sharing information about members over an array of businesses and industries inconceivable when Gramm–Leach–Bliley was passed. continue reading » read more
Researchers work in a laboratory at the Philippine Genome Center on March 12, 2020. Senate President Vicente Sotto III on Sunday called for expanded mass testing for coronavirus disease ahead of the anticipated lifting of enhanced community quarantine. ABS-CBN NEWS “The premature lifting of the strict quarantine regulation could lead to a worse second COVID-19 wave,” Sotto said. MANILA – With areas under enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) likely shifting to general community quarantine (GCQ), Senate President Vicente Sotto III underscored the need to expand mass testing for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). “Let us remember that even among the quarantined population, the threat that the virus had already invaded their communities and even homes without them being aware of it is also high,” Sotto said in a statement. He added that the outcome of COVID-19 mass testing will also warn government leaders against prematurely lifting the ECQ in Metro Manila and other high-risk areas. “Kung sila na nasa bahay lang at sumunod sa lahat ng health protocols ay nag-positive sa virus, siguradong mas malala ang pwedeng mangyari kung ma-lift na ang enhanced community quarantine at ang lahat ay papayagan ng lumabas ng kanilang mga bahay,” said Sotto. Just like in the Senate, according to Sotto, where 20 employees were tested positive for COVID-19 during a rapid testing conducted on staffers, who complied with the government’s order to stay home, did not get exposed to anyone with COVID-19, and did not show nor feel any symptoms of the highly contagious disease. Sotto said that the mass testing conducted by the Department of Health (DOH) in all provinces in the country should also be done to more people for a clearer picture of the extent of COVID-19’s transmission. Metro Manila and other high-risk areas remain under enhanced community quarantine until May 15. All other provinces are under the more relaxed general community quarantine until mid-May./PN read more
