BSA: Don’t just train it—understand it

first_imgIn credit union training, some issues are so important that they allow no room for error. Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) compliance is one such issue.BSA isn’t just another set of regulatory hoops for your credit union to jump through; it’s one of the most crucial pieces of financial legislation in U.S. history, and it ensures that credit unions do their part to find and report money laundering. Your obligation to comply with BSA is both a legal and moral one.How do you ensure your staff is fully prepared to maintain BSA compliance? The job starts with the trainer.Inventor and businessman Charles Kettering once said, “There’s a great difference between knowing a thing and understanding it.” For a trainer to truly engage their staff in BSA compliance, they need more than just cursory knowledge of the law. Trainers need to actually understand the content and the implications of BSA for their credit union. By understanding the Bank Secrecy Act, trainers will be able to design a training approach that explains the law’s most challenging aspects effectively and accessibly.Trainers who make the time investment to learn about different aspects of the BSA are more equipped to answer nuanced, department-specific questions and help staff members relate training back to their role.Another benefit of this approach is articulated by CUNA’s Director of Compliance Education, Tracy Blaske. “The more BSA courses you take, the quicker you’ll learn what makes for effective BSA training,” she notes. “CUNA’s BSA courses—which are vetted by experts and carefully designed to present information in an easily digestible manner—are excellent models for your own training program.”If you need one more incentive to self-train on the BSA, consider this: trainers are in a unique position to set an example for the rest of their credit union. Staff members turn to trainers for guidance on learning and professional development.By enrolling in BSA training, trainers communicate the law’s importance in a way that books and lectures cannot convey.To view CUNA’s BSA training options, visit cuna.org/courses. 27SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Marlo Foltz For the past 15 years, Marlo has designed, developed and conducted training programs for credit union employees, executives and volunteers.

Wheat vernalization

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest For winter wheat to produce grain, it has to experience a period of cooler temperatures once the germination process has started. When exposed to temperatures near 40 degrees F for a period of about three weeks, wheat undergoes vernalization which allows it to produce a seed head. If for some reason wheat plants are not exposed to this period of temperatures they will stay in the vegetative stage and will not produce a seed head.The exact time and temperature required for vernalization varies from variety to variety. Research has linked winter hardiness and maturity to vernalization requirements. For instance, varieties that are more winterhardy and later maturating require lower temperatures and longer periods of cooler weather for vernalization to occur. Even in a mild Eastern Corn Belt Winter, wheat will still be exposed to temperatures cold enough to allow it to go through the process of vernalization.last_img read more

eBay Debuts New Local Shopping Site

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Today eBay has launched its new local shopping site called GiftsNearby, while Google continues to hunt for a local e-commerce service after its $6 billion buyout offer was rejected by coupon site Groupon earlier this month.The new eBay site integrates technology from eBay’s acquisition of Milo.com, a local shopping startup bought by the auction giant for $75 million at the beginning of December. Milo, which calls itself the “anti-Amazon” helps consumers spot local deals in real-time by tracking the product inventory at over 50,000 stores.eBay Goes Local with Milo-Powered GiftsNearbyMilo’s retailer partner list includes ?several big names like Target, Macy’s , Sears, JCPenney, Nordstrom, IKEA, RadioShack, Best Buy, Borders, Barnes & Noble, The Home Depot, EBGames, Gamestop, Finish Line, Toys R Us, Lowe’s, Ann Taylor and others. The company touted 140 retail partners at the time of its acquisition.Now, only weeks later, eBay has launched its first major integration of Milo’s technology into an eBay property at giftsnearby.ebay.com. The new site shows popular holiday gift items from local stores either in or near a user’s zip code. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts Tags:#e-commerce#Location#news#web Best Buy has stepped up as a launch partner with the site, offering GiftsNearby shoppers the ability to purchase the item online through the website for pick up at a local store. It’s the only store at present with this option.As for the user experience, it’s pretty good, for what was clearly quick and dirty pre-holiday launch. However, the site lagged at times for us, and then failed to load our local deals on the last refresh. You mileage may vary – we tested on Google Chrome, and not even on all versions (e.g. stable, beta, developer, Canary, etc.)Local Shopping Heats UpThis isn’t the only integration of Milo’s technology – eBay recently added local search results to its RedLaser barcode scanning application (another 2010 acquisition) which works on both iPhone and Android mobile platforms. eBay says that GiftsNearby marks the company’s “first” e-commerce integration with Milo, a statement that indicates there’s more to come.In 2011, expect to see the local shopping scene heat up even more. eBay now has Milo, Amazon invested $183 million in LivingSocial, another local deals site with Groupon-like aspirations, and Groupon itself will no doubt continue to grow after passing on Google’s buyout offer. Meanwhile, Google is sure to pick up a Groupon clone soon enough (BuyWithMe is said to be on the short list), and by the looks of our email inbox, every startup peddling local deals hopes to be the one Google chooses.In the meantime, you can enjoy the fruits of this localized e-commerce competition for your own holiday shopping purposes at GiftsNearby.ebay.com. sarah perez Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…last_img read more

Apple Kills Aperture – Final Cut Pro X and Logic Safe for Now

first_imgIf you’re a photographer that uses Apple’s Aperture photo editing application, it’s time to start learning Lightroom.After speculation over the last few years that Apple may be abandoning the pro photo editing space, an announcement today confirms that as fact. Apple will no longer be developing Aperture, the photo organization and editing program used by many pro photographers. Aperture has gone without any significant updates since 2010…a foreshadowing of today’s announcement.At this year’s Worldwide Developer’s Conference Apple announced “Photos”, an application we now know is intended to take the place of iPhoto. Apple has announced that Aperture users will be able to migrate their existing photo libraries to ‘Photos for OSX’ when it ships in 2015. The editing functionality in Photos is more advanced then what we’ve seen in iPhoto in the past, but there’s a big question about whether it will provide the same professional feature set that Aperture had.Image: Photos for OSXJust as Apple faced a backlash with the announcement of Final Cut Pro X in 2011, we can expect the same with this announcement (and a similar exodus to Adobe’s Creative Cloud).Update to Final Cut Pro X, Motion & CompressorIn related Apple news, they’re showing support for other creative industries with the announcement of an update for Final Cut Pro X, Motion and Compressor. The list of updates in the Final Cut Pro X 10.1.2 release include:Optimized, proxy, and rendered media can be stored at any location outside of the libraryEasily delete optimized, proxy, and rendered media from within Final Cut Pro XUsed media indicators for Compound clips, Multicam clips, and Synced clipsOption to show only unused media in the BrowserApply a standard (Rec. 709) look in real time to high dynamic range and wide color gamut video from ARRI, Blackmagic Design, Canon, and Sony camerasAutomatically apply an ARRI embedded 3D LUT from the new AMIRA cameraSupport for Apple ProRes 4444 XQImproved speed and accuracy when synchronizing clipsAudio recording improvements including countdown and automatic Audition creation from multiple takesFast export of cuts-only projects containing XDCAM mediaExport entire library as a single XML fileSelecting a library displays key metadata in the InspectorAdjust relative and absolute volume of a clip or range selectionCreate Keywords from Finder Tags when importing mediaOption to sort events by date or name in the Libraries listImport a clip by dragging directly into the BrowserShare 4K video to VimeoJump to TechCrunch for a full listing of Motion and Compressor updates.Are you an Aperture user?

Power machine

first_imgIt’s probably the most awaited car in India after the Tata Nano. And judging by the initial reception to the SUV it seems like a lot of people were patiently waiting for the Toyota Fortuner. The Fortuner is built on the same IMV platform as the Innova, but has improved steering response and more performance-biased suspension and underpinnings.The SUV shares more of its looks with the Hilux, Toyota’s pickup truck on the same platform that is sold overseas, than the van like Innova we are so familiar with. Despite being a four-year-old design, albeit facelifted before the Indian launch, the Fortuner still looks quite contemporary. The 17-inch wheels, bulging wheel arches and high ground clearance give the Toyota a proper butch look.Inside, there is a sense of deja vu. Thanks to its Innova link, the dash layout and switch gear is similar. So is the steering and the central console layout. The latter also features an identical green backlit audio system and climate control as the Innova. But, for a vehicle almost twice the price, the Fortuner is a bit of a letdown. The side rear-view mirror control is awkwardly placed near the headlight levelling switch and the most contemporary bit of the dash is the white-backlit meters in the instrument panel. The seats are a great part of the Fortuner. The front set is highly supportive, albeit completely manual. The middle row too is quite good, and features backrest and fore-aft adjustment. The middle row also gets a roof mounted air-con control, which directs air to the middle and last rows. The last row is quite comfortable, with a natural seating position that won’t be discomforting on longer drives. The Fortuner is powered by Toyota’s common-rail D4-D diesel engine that displaces 2982cc. The engine packs a good load of power and torque, delivering it quite early in the rev range. The torque is easily put down by all four 265/17 in tyres, via the permanent four wheel drive system. It feels great to drive and doesn’t feel out of breath at all. The five-speed manual (no automatic just yet), is no racing ‘box but not bad to use, though it has a long throw.Toyota has stiffened the Fortuner for India (as compared to other Asian markets), and this means that the low speed ride of the SUV suffers; the handling, however, gains. The stiff suspension, wide tyres and four wheel drive lend the SUV good body control, grip and drive around bends, respectively. The steering is light but lacks directness and feel. It’s the same with the brakes; there’s ABS but the brake feel and bite isn’t linear or ferocious.The Fortuner is rugged and with the looks and dimensions befitting a proper SUV. That it’s a Toyota naturally helps. Price: Rs. 19.8 lakh.On the road: Nizamabad to KanyakumariLeaving Nizamabad in our Audi A4 in the wee hours of the morning allowed us a clear run towards Hyderabad, we expected to get across Hyderabad fast, but were caught by the morning office and school traffic. We went around the city to avoid city centre traffic, before hitting the road towards the new Hyderabad airport. Once past the city traffic, we started making good time and stopped for some quick idlis. It was good to see how the new roads can instantly increase your pace and confidence. Entering Bangalore is a bad idea at anytime, especially in the evening. We opted for a bypass which took us all the way around the city and brought us near Hosur, the industrial town neighbouring the city. The road was complete, and featured enough reflectors and cat-eyes to keep the journey safe till Salem, our next stop. From Salem to Kanyakumari the largely completed highways took us through some of the most scenic parts of the peninsula. We left early and had the highway much to ourselves till Madhurai. Once past, one of the most amazing landscapes came forth. We were driving on table flat land that let to a range to high hills cutting into the sky and the dark monsoon clouds. These flanked us much of the way, and look truly amazing in the distance. Before reaching Kanyakumari, we made a slight detour to see the Vattakottai Fort, taking in the views of the blue sea and Cape Comorin from far.-Siddhraj SinghHero Honda ZMRIf one needed to cross states in the country, the Karizma for long, was the perfect answer. Now though, a new version of the Karizma is out. And we will say it straight off; it is even better. The looks have changed for the better. The ZMR conveys its sport touring intentions better than any of its competition. It now sports a full fairing that houses a headlamp unit. The tail meanwhile is nicely sculpted. We also like the tail lamp unit which features LEDs and integrated side indicators. Split grab rails make their debut on the bike, but aren’t the most comfy to hold on to. The all new digital instrumentation is easily the best looking and the freshest design we have seen in the recent past. The setup is also easy to read and programmable to read out customised welcome and sign off notes.The rear dampers are now gas charged and the improvement in ride quality is immediately evident. The ZMR also handles brilliantly. It’s supremely stable in a straight line and around bends it’s sharp, light footed and very forgiving. The most significant change on the ZMR is to the engine. It still uses the same engine as the older Karizma and is as refined through most of its operating range, but it’s now fuel injected. Also, there’s an oil cooler for more efficient cooling. The power and torque ratings haven’t improved by much though, but on the road, the ZMR is a tad quicker than the older motorcycle. It also has better throttle response while the rideability only gets better towards the top of the rev range. Price: Rs. 91,000 ex showroom. -Vikrant SinghColumn courtesy: Auto Bild Indiaadvertisementadvertisementlast_img read more

Tennis Has An Income Inequality Problem

Tennis is played and followed in most nations worldwide. But professional players aren’t making much money. Fewer than 1,000 pro players break even at the sport. Far fewer make a decent living.The opportunities to make good money are dwindling. More players are competing for prizes that are growing slowly, especially at the game’s lowest levels. Earlier this month, the ATP World Tour, which runs the most lucrative pro men’s events, announced it was increasing prize money significantly over the next four years. But the most exclusive tournaments will get the biggest boosts. After adjusting for inflation1Which I did using the U.S. Consumer Price Index, since U.S. dollars are the standard currency in tennis, prize money on the ATP’s Challenger Tour — the equivalent of baseball’s AAA minor league — has fallen by 25 percent in the last six years.Soon after the ATP’s announcement, the International Tennis Federation released results of its analysis of the pro game’s financials. Among the sobering findings: Only 336 men and 253 women made more than they spent playing tennis last year.2That doesn’t count sponsorship money and appearance fees, but it also doesn’t count coaching expenses.In every pro sport, many compete for few lucrative slots. Tennis’s economics are particularly brutal. Players are individual contractors who have to cover their own transportation, equipment, coaching and — at some events — accommodation and food. Almost all of them have to supplement their winnings with sponsorships, support from their national federations or their families, odd jobs or all of the above.The best 104 men and 104 women get safe passage to the four Grand Slam tournaments each year.3Each Grand Slam tournament has spots for 128 men and 128 women in its singles draws. Typically 104 men enter singles directly based on their ranking, while the rest of the slots go to players who qualify in a pre-tournament playoff, or who get a wild-card slot from organizers. Women’s draws are constructed similarly, though most majors allot four fewer qualifying slots for women, and four more direct-entry positions. They’re the players who have a chance to make a lot of money playing tennis. Lose your first match at each one last year, and you would still earn roughly $130,000. The rest of the players in the world are fighting for much smaller purses. The ITF estimates that the 4,978 men who won some prize money last year but weren’t in the top 1 percent earned, on average, a little over $13,000. The bottom 99 percent of the 2,650 women who earned prize money averaged about $22,600.If you’re the 350th best man in the world at baseball, basketball, American football, ice hockey or soccer, you’re earning more than $500,000 each year, expenses paid. If you’re the 350th best man in tennis, you’re probably either falling into debt or getting help from a sponsor or parent. Tennis looks better financially for women than for men, relative to other sports, yet it’s likely that fewer than 200 women are earning a living from tennis prize money.Tennis’s problem is that its fan base is wide but not deep. It has fans in countries around the world, but rarely enough to support a major tournament with sellouts and big TV ratings in any single market.The ITF is considering how to divide the revenue among players in a way that’s best for the game. The nonprofit body is studying the sport’s economics to make sure that players who are good enough to break through don’t quit the game before doing so — and to hasten the departure of those who aren’t good enough. The ITF’s data shows it takes about a year longer now than it did in 2000 for a player to go from his or her first ranking to reaching the Top 100, which is another year during which promising players might get discouraged and drop their rackets.“The last thing I’d want is for an exceptionally talented player to have to leave the game after a year or two, before they realize their potential,” Kris Dent, the ITF’s director of pro tennis, said in a telephone interview. “That’s something that drives what we’re doing, first and foremost.”The ITF enlisted outside researchers in Australia and the U.K. for its study. It surveyed 7,605 players worldwide, three-quarters of them active professional players. Just 6 percent of women and 5 percent of men who responded said their prize money in their most recent year of professional play covered their expenses. More than half of men and women said they had to cut costs to a level they deemed unacceptable for hotels and the number and quality of tournaments they played.The life most pro players lead is far from glamorous. They are concerned more with having enough balls and a good court to play on, than with paparazzi and endorsements. Players were asked in the survey where they’d be OK with cuts. Balls and facility maintenance were lowest on their list. In a recent post on Facebook, 22-year-old Tomás Buchhass of Argentina lamented “courts in a pitiful state which are a hazard to the physical well-being of the players” at a Chilean ITF event. And a photo of a shredded net on a practice court at a Tunisian ITF event made the rounds on Twitter last month.4An ITF spokesman confirmed the photo is genuine and added, “It is essential that tournament conditions meet the minimum standards expected by the ITF. Where complaints about an unacceptable site are upheld following investigation, as they were on this particular occasion, we will not approve the site for any future Circuit tournaments unless we are entirely satisfied that steps have been taken to ensure no repetition.”In one of the least surprising findings of modern polling history, nearly all players said prize money should increase. (Just who were the 12 percent of men and 21 percent of women who disagreed, the ITF couldn’t say.)Dent agrees with players, to a point. He’d like to see less hardship for young players. For instance, he wants the lowest-level tournaments to cover players’ food and hotel costs in the form of a per diem; this year fewer than 4 percent of ITF pro events covered all players’ hospitality costs. That would help encourage players to travel to more tournaments. More prize money would help, too, but big increases aren’t realistic for most events. Below the top rungs of the men’s and women’s tours, there is little to no income coming from sponsorships, ticket sales or broadcast rights, Dent said. National federations, sometimes with grants from the ITF or the Grand Slams, generally cover costs, and aren’t likely to pay for big prize-money increases.Many different bodies run the sport. Each of the four Grand Slams is run by the host nation’s tennis federation. The ATP runs the men’s tour, the WTA the women’s tour. For the men, the ATP handles the highest minor-league level, of Challengers, while the ITF runs the lowest-level pro tournaments, called Futures. For women, the ITF runs all events below tour level.The ITF runs the least lucrative tournaments, so it doesn’t have much leeway to increase prize money at those. Dent wants to shrink the player pool so there is more money for each player. “We need to look at how we reward players who are progressing, but start to make it harder for players who aren’t,” he said.Tennis isn’t likely to start forcing players to earn tour cards, as golf does. But Dent repeatedly cited golf as an example of a sport that properly “signposts” steps on aspiring pros’ journeys. Tennis, he said, needs to a better job of that. The point of Futures and Challengers isn’t to award enough money for players to live on, but to identify the best emerging talents and bestow ranking points so they can qualify for bigger, more lucrative tournaments. Toughening playing-down rules, which prevent players from competing at events below their level, are a way for the ITF to ensure that prize money and ranking points at entry-level events get divvied up among emerging stars, not established veterans.Dent also envisions adding yet a lower level of competition — development events that cash-strapped national federations can support so that local players can afford to play without heavy travel costs. The events would have smaller draws and use officials with less experience than is required at current ITF events — while not skimping on costs for courts and balls.“Already a number of developing nations, particularly in Africa, find it difficult to host events at the prize-money level we have,” Dent said. Nearly half of men’s prize money at ITF events, and more than half of ITF women’s prize money, was distributed at European events this year.The pool of money for aspiring players could be growing soon. In March, the ITF Board will consider the idea of the development tour and other potential changes — including increases to prize money and hospitality — in light of the research. The ATP likely will increase prize money and hospitality spending at Challenger tournaments next year, too, according to a spokesman — which would reverse recent stagnation and decline.The big money, though, remains at the top of the game — and the gap likely will widen. The ATP’s recently announced prize-money increases are biggest for the 500- and 1,000-level tournaments, which are the most exclusive ones, with increases of 50 percent and 54 percent, respectively, in 2018 compared to this year, after adjusting for projected inflation. The 250-level events, one notch up from Challengers, will increase prize money by just 6 percent. read more

Sandals drops major bomb makes Misick brothers look terribly suspect

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 01 Feb 2016 – A weekend statement from Gordon Butch Stewart, Chairman of Sandals Resorts International paints a grim, very grim picture for the lead defendant, Michael Misick in the ongoing SIPT trial.Stewart said principals of his company did not know that $1.65 million dollars, plus, was paid into the account of Prestigious Properties and they named four Misick brothers as owners of that real estate firm: Michael, Washington, Philip and Chalmers through his law firm, Chalmers & Co. A high powered law firm and a big time accounting firm were hired by Sandals and reportedly scoured the SRI accounts in search of the alleged pay out, and with the pressure from the DOJ or US Department of Justice; Sandals did find the payment. According to Stewart, it cost him a fine by TCI Authorities of $12 million and he fired the Treasurer who according to this release went rogue to issue the money to Prestigious Properties. “The unauthorized payments were made by a Senior Executive and then Treasurer of Sandals. This culminated in the separation of the Senior Executive from the company and was followed by Sandals filing a lawsuit against him in the Bahamas to recover the unauthorized payments.” Sandals said they also had to give evidence to the DOJ and SIPT and said the Robin Auld Commission of Inquiry was what led them to dig deeper and Sandals found that others also siphoned money from the company; they are now facing prosecution in Jamaica.
