Setlist: Breaking Biscuits | Purple Hatter’s Ball | Live Oak, FL | 6.2.18The Horror (RJD2), Can’t Leave The Night (BadBadNotGood), Inside You (Eddy Henderson)> Robot Rock (Daft Punk), 1999* (Prince), Phantom Pt. II (Justice)*W/ Roosevelt Collier Breaking Biscuits brought their two great tastes–the Disco Biscuits‘ Marc Brownstein and Aron Magner together with Break Science‘s keyboardist Borahm Lee and drummer Adam Deitch (also from Lettuce)–for a deep cut set of electronica, jazz, funk and hip-hop covers at the 2018 edition of the Purple Hatter’s Ball. While the futuristic supergroup has only had the chance to collaborate a handful of times, they never fail to astound and cause the crowd to get down and dirty. Their set at the Purple Hatter’s Ball even included a sit-in with sacred steel master Roosevelt Collier who kicked their cover of Prince‘s “1999” to religious heights!All of this funky music was being made for the best of causes. The Purple Hatter’s Ball was founded to keep the memory of a fallen friend to the Florida music scene, Rachel Morningstar Hoffman, alive and well. Though the story of her death is a true tragedy, the way the community has rallied behind the efforts to ensure her fate never befalls another is one of the more moving stories in the festival world. You can donate to The Rachel Morningstar Foundation HERE and then check out the two extended clips of Breaking Biscuits jamming tunes from BADBADNOTGOOD, Eddy Henderson and Daft Punk below. Enjoy!Breaking Biscuits – “Inside You>Robot Rock” – 6/2/18 Breaking Biscuits – “Can’t Leave The Night” – 6/2/18

In total, 130 Pensionskassen (94%) were considered to have sufficient “risk-bearing capacity”, according to BaFin’s statement.BaFin supervises 138 Pensionkassen. It excused 16 from taking part in the stress test because it considered their “risk-bearing capacity” to be assured as a result of them pursuing low-risk investment strategies.A spokesman for BaFin said that Pensionskassen’s ability to bear risks had not changed significantly since last year.In an introduction to the regulator’s 2016 annual report, BaFin president Felix Hufeld said that Pensionskassen were under considerable pressure from low interest rates and have already begun to take measures to strengthen their risk-bearing capacity.Nearly all Pensionskassen have built up additional provisions, he said.However, he warned that some might not be able to deliver promised benefits in full if interest rates stayed low.According to statistics published in BaFin’s 2016 annual report, the average funding level at Pensionskassen was 131% and therefore in line with last year’s level of 132%.As at the end of 2016, Pensionskassen in Germany had €155bn in assets, up 5% from 2015. BaFin said they remained mainly invested in investment units, bearer bonds and other fixed-income securities, as well as registered bonds and loans.BaFin today said it would not disclose the names of the Pensionskassen and Pensionsfonds, nor those of the companies financing them, that are due to participate in EIOPA’s second stress test of EU pension funds. Eight German Pensionskassen did not pass the German financial regulator’s stress test for 2016, BaFin has said.BaFin said the eight schemes were smaller Pensionskassen – insurance-based occupational pension plans – and did not belong to the 40 largest in the sector.The stress test examines how Pensionskassen would fare in four different situations involving short-term, adverse capital market changes. Last year seven did not pass the stress test, and the year before it was nine.The eight Pensionskassen failed BaFin’s stress test because they did not pass all scenarios tested. The supervisor said they generally missed the required funding level by a small margin.

It’s what is happening, it’s nothing new. But I have the strength to continue, I have faith in my players and I believe we can turn this around.” Barcelona have already sacked their coach this season, with Setien replacing Ernesto Valverde in January, while a number of off-field controversies have created tension between key players and the board. Former Real Madrid forward Jorge Valdano said this week the Clasico would be a battle of “two lame ducks” but Zidane said the criticism has been harsh. “When teams start dropping points, people sometimes over analyse,” Zidane said. “Real Madrid and Barcelona are first and second in the league so what does it say about the others? “I don’t think people can say we are a disaster if we are first and second in the table. There are always periods where you are good and periods where you are less good.” Setien was at the Santiago Bernabeu to watch City’s win over Madrid in the Champions League and spoke to Pep Guardiola after the match. “I didn’t go to see Guardiola, I went to see the game and to watch an opponent very similar in terms of style to ours,” Setien said. “We talked about different things. There are some things City did that could be good for us and other things that are not for us and we aren’t interested in.” Jordi Alba was given the green light on Saturday to play after recovering from an adductor injury while Setien confirmed Gerard Pique is fit, despite turning his ankle against Napoli on Tuesday. read also:Neymar re-opens legal battle with Barca over £33m claim “It’s not damaged and he will not have any problem,” Setien said about Pique. On Alba, he added: “We’re feeling positive, it’s just whether we start him or not. We’ll see how he feels tomorrow.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Zinedine Zidane said the Clasico on Sunday will not decide the title race even if Real Madrid lose to Barcelona and fall five points behind them in La Liga. Barcelona players in training ahead El Clasico Yet opposite number Quique Setien believes Barca’s two-point cushion at the top makes the match at the Santiago Bernabeu “much more important for Madrid” than his team. Victory for the Catalans would effectively give them a six-point advantage over Madrid, given what would be a superior head-to-head, with 12 games left to play. But Zidane insists there would be still be a way back. “I don’t think anyone will lose anything this weekend,” he said in a press conference on Saturday. “There are still 12 games left, we’ll still be in the title race regardless of the result. But we’re going to try to win, 100 per cent.” Setien, also speaking Saturday, said the pressure was all on Real. “For Madrid this match is certainly much more important than for us. In relation to their situation in the table, it is a key match, I don’t know if it’s decisive, but it’s very important.” After Madrid, Barcelona will only have one away game left against the top six, when they face Sevilla in April, yet Setien thinks there will be more twists to come. “A victory would give us an advantage but I don’t know if it would be enough,” said Setien. “I think probably not because we’ve already seen a lot of surprises.” Both teams have endured a bumpy few weeks but Barcelona arrive in a better mood after Madrid’s 2-1 defeat to Manchester City on Wednesday made it one win from five games for Zidane’s side. Asked if his job would be under threat if they fail to win the title this term, Zidane said: “I don’t know, that’s a question for someone else. I know what I have to do. “We’re going to try to win something, thats what we’re working for but you can only have one winner.” Loading…
