After much anticipation, the Grateful Dead finally released their 12-CD box set, July 1978: The Complete Recordings. Focusing on five shows held between July 1-8 of 1978, the complete set is packed with hours of prime Grateful Dead goodness.In addition to the full box set, the Dead have shared a separate release of their performance at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO from July 8th, 1978. This was the second night of a two-night stand, and the band’s second show at Red Rocks ever. The Dead would go on to play the iconic venue for a total of 20 times, setting a long-held sold-out show record that was recently broken by Widespread Panic.Fortunately, the entirety of the July 8th show is also on Spotify, which means we can happily share and listen to the pristine audio from this show. From the opener “Bertha” to the finale, a cover of Warren Zevon’s “Werewolves of London,” which was released that year, this is some of the best Grateful Dead music around. Enjoy! You can also watch Twist & Shout Records owner Paul Epstein talk about the shows, which he attended, below:Thanks for the music, Grateful Dead!

However, the focus on UDAAP is not limited to regulatory compliance risks. Financial institutions, including credit unions, have been targeted in class action lawsuits alleging inadequate disclosures of overdraft protection programs. As with UDAAP claims, the best approach for credit unions to avoid such allegations is to closely analyze their overdraft programs and disclosures and, as necessary, enhance the information provided to members.Available BalanceMany credit unions use the “available balance” (which considers transactions authorized but not yet cleared) to determine whether to pay a particular transaction and also whether to charge a non-sufficient funds fee (when returning an item) or an overdraft fee (when paying an item). Lawsuits allege that the usage of the available balance was not clear and, thus, the overdraft fees were improper because the member’s actual balance was positive.Importantly, using the available balance is allowed. And, there are no regulatory requirements outlining how and when a credit union is required to disclose its usage of the available balance. Rather, the overarching UDAAP standard results in the need to ensure the CU’s overall overdraft program—including usage of available balance—is upfront, clear and transparent to members.

Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) Pete Russell has thrown his support behind a proposal which would limit the number of T20 competitions players can participate in.Due to a notable increase in T20 competitions around the world, the game’s governing body, the International Cricket Council (ICC), is reportedly looking to enforce a three-league cap on players.The decision has reportedly been backed by the majority of Full Members.Broad consensusAt its annual conference in Dublin over the weekend, the Chief Executive Committee (CEC) and the ICC Board discussed the issue and a broad consensus emerged that if players were allowed to participate in any number of leagues, it would affect international bilateral cricket.The move is likely to hit West Indian cricketers the hardest as they are the most popular presence among the many global leagues. The ICC is also reportedly considering making the process of obtaining necessary permissions for hosting T20 leagues in Associate Nations tougher.Too many leagues “First, I think it’s a good idea. I think there are too many leagues creeping up, and I think some of these Associate Members who are allowed to host leagues, like the Canada league…in my opinion they don’t own the rights to host those leagues, because what you want is for the Full Member countries; obviously, the West Indies been a major part of that, they should be hosting the best leagues in the world,” Russell said.The CPL brand“For us, we [CPL] built a brand for over five years and the testimony to that is we have over 200 million people following this tournament around the world; it’s a huge number…bigger actually than the Big Bash, so this league resonates around the world, not just in the Caribbean.“It is a very strong brand already, so for us it’s just about doing more [of] the same, and I think more [of] the same is to make sure we get the best players around the world. Again, we have Chris Lynn, Brandon McCullum, Martin Guptill and David Warner. We have some great players coming down again this year, so we’ll continue to attract the best players, not only because it’s a good tournament but who wouldn’t want to come to the Caribbean for six weeks,” he opined.Apart from the IPL and Big Bash League, the current cricket calendar consists of the PSL, CPL, England’s T20 blast and the Bangladesh Premier League, along with a new league which is expected to kick off later in South Africa. Additionally, there are leagues coming up in Dubai and Norway as well, to add to the ongoing Global T20 Canada.
