From new technology to increased regulation, credit unions are experiencing the effects of these changes each day.On top of that, credit unions are facing threats now that didn’t exist just a few years ago. Cyberattacks have become a huge threat. The risks associated with cyber incidents are significant and can leave your credit union with huge problems.These attacks can be costly, resource intensive, and damaging to your credit union’s reputation. A recent study found that the average cost of losing control of your network is $40,000 per hour, a massive hit for even the largest credit union. Additionally, credit unions that experience data breaches lose an average of 12 percent of their members.Cybersecurity defenses are an important aspect of compliance. NCUA has rated cybersecurity as the top supervisory priority for audits in four out of the past five years. This emphasis will only heighten as cyberattacks become more complex and harder to prevent. continue reading »
Two children have been awarded €17,000 following an accident during which their father crashed into a wall.The children, who are sisters, were both wearing seatbelts but were thrown forward and then backwards during the accident in April, 2016. Both were treated by Letterkenny-based GP Dr James McDaid who said they were suffering from classic whiplash symptoms.Barrister Gareth McGrory told Letterkenny Circuit Court that the children were 5 years old and 4 years old at the time of the accident.Both complained of chest pain and muscle injury was diagnosed when they attended Letterkenny University hospital.Both have since made a full recovery, the court was told.Judge John Aylmer said he was happy to recommend the offer of €17,000 for each girl.Sisters awarded €17,000 after father crashed into wall was last modified: May 13th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
With just 16 days to go for the World Cup opening ceremony in Dhaka, the fever is rising fast in India.India will fight it out for the coveted World Cup with 13 other teams.While fans are making sure that they don’t miss out on the tickets for key matches, members of the Indian team are utilising their rare off days to complete shooting for advertisements.Soon the same players will turn serious as they get into a preparatory camp at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore and then in Chennai.India begin their campaign against Bangladesh in Dhaka on February 19.For a tournament of this magnitude, a lot of background work is required – from fool-proof security to logistics to ensuring good pitch and ground conditions for a healthy contest between bat and ball. Both the International Cricket Council (ICC) and tournament co-host Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) are leaving no stone unturned to ensure that all 49 matches are staged without hassles.India is crazy about cricket and the madness is expected to reach an unprecedented height during the 45-day competition.An Australian team in transition will attempt to register its fourth straight title triumph while the likes of India, England and South Africa will try to stop Ricky Ponting’s side from running away with the trophy on April 2, when the final is played at a completely renovated Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.The World Cup has grown over the years, since the first edition was played in 1975 in England. From eight teams 36 years ago to 14 now, the tournament has expanded in every sense of the term. Besides the honour of becoming the world’s number one team, there’s a lot more at stake. A total prize money of $ 10 million, of which $30,00,000 will go to the winners, would ensure that players give their best performance.advertisementThis is the third occasion that the World Cup is coming to the Indian subcontinent, the earlier occasions being 1987 when it was hosted for the first time outside England – and 1996. This year, south Asia could have made a record with four countries jointly hosting the World Cup, but security concerns meant that Pakistan was chucked out, leaving only India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh to stage the tournament at 13 venues.India has eight venues, Sri Lanka three and Bangladesh two. The semi-finals will be played in Colombo and Mohali while the final at a stadium about 16 kilometres from Sachin Tendulkar’s home in Mumbai.Unlike for the 1987 World Cup, when India and Pakistan cricket boards joined hands to successfully win the bid to host the tournament, it was much easy to beat the only contenders, Australia-New Zealand, for the 2011 edition. The south Asian nations won 10- 3 on April 30, 2006, after the ICC relaxed the rules to allow them to submit their main bid after its expiry date. It was not surprising, since an estimated 70- 80 per cent of ICC’s revenue comes from Indian companies or the MNCs based in the country.
The Committee of Administrators (CoA) chief Vinod Rai Friday said an agency will be hired within the next 10 days to deal with recommended gender sensitisation classes for BCCI CEO Rahul Johri, two months after he was exonerated by a probe panel of alleged sexual harassment.While Johri was cleared of the sexual harassment allegation in November, lawyer Veena Gowda, member of the three-member probe panel, recommended gender sensitisation classes for the CEO after finding his behaviour “unprofessional and inappropriate” on one occasion.”Gender sensitisation will be pursued as per the recommendation of the inquiry committee, under the supervision of BCCI’s POSH (prevention of sexual harassment committee) and it will be done without any delay. I expect it to be done within the next 10 days,” Rai told PTI.While COA had mulled gender counselling for the Indian team in the wake of sexist comments made by Hardik Pandya, little progress has been made in implementing the recommendation concerning Johri.Rai also made it clear that Johri has no issues in attending the classes.”The CEO is willing to undergo gender sensitisation process. There is no issue there,” said the former CAG.Fellow COA member Diana Edulji also welcomed the chairman’s move on the controversial subject.The delay happened mainly because Rai and Edulji differed on the choice of agency to be hired for the gender sensitisation classes.Edulji did not want the company (Kapgrow) which had conducted a POSH training programme for BCCI employees earlier this year and therefore, Gowda was entrusted with the job of recommending names of two agencies.advertisementThe fact that the BCCI’s internal complaint committee chief Karina Kriplani resigned in October also contributed to the delay.”The new BCCI POSH committee have had two meetings on the issue. In its third meeting, which will happen before month end, it will finalise the agency which will provide gender training to the CEO,” said a BCCI source.When PTI contacted Gowda to comment on BCCI not arranging gender sensitisation classes for its CEO yet, she said: “I gave my point of view in my recommendation. I have nothing more to add to it.”Johri had resumed office immediately after getting a clean chit from the probe panel.Also Read | Umesh Yadav demolishes Kerala, defending champions Vidarbha enter finalAlso Read | Cheteshwar Pujara, Indian cricket’s marathon man, turns 31Also Read | Youngsters like Prithvi creating healthy competition in the team: DhawanAlso Read | Team India receives traditional welcome in Mount Maunganui
Jordan Henderson says Liverpool must learn from Man Utd drawby Paul Vegas4 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveJordan Henderson says Liverpool must learn from Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Manchester United.The Reds were unable to flex their muscles throughout the clash and relied on Adam Lallana to score an equaliser with time running out.Asked if a point was a fair outcome, the captain told the club’s website: “Probably. I didn’t think we performed well enough in the first half, not our usual selves really, especially with the ball.”We could have been a lot better but I thought second half was a lot better. We changed it a little bit tactically, which helped us, and I thought the longer the game went on we were pushing for that winner, and towards that last five to 10 minutes I thought we were going to get it.”Ox came close with a great strike with his left foot and we kept pushing but, overall, a fair reflection of the game would have to be a point.”But, like I say, we have got to be much better for the 90 minutes. I was disappointed we couldn’t come here and put on a top performance because I felt as though we could have done that today.”When you can’t win, you don’t lose, and that’s the sign of a good team. But we’ve got to learn from the game today and make sure it doesn’t happen again.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
Indiana’s Troy Williams will be looking to do this again on FridayToday’s game against Michigan State is huge for Indiana for a number of reasons. The Hoosiers can pick up a big win against another likely tournament team, and impress a pair of huge recruits that are attending the game at Assembly Hall. Forward Hanner Mosquera-Perea is playing his part in the effort. The high-flying junior somehow split four Spartan defenders from just a few feet inside the foul line to slam home a missed three attempt. DUNK OF THE YEAR: https://t.co/NuDV8t1GV1— OHB (@ohholybutt) March 7, 2015We’d tell Michigan State to box out, but we’re sure Tom Izzo has already covered that.

In Russia, Team USA won 28 medals, which was roughly 10 percent of the total medals awarded that year — just one behind the Russians for the overall lead.3After the Russians lost four medals from their initial 2014 total in a doping scandal. But if you were to eliminate events that were introduced in Lillehammer ’94 and beyond, the Americans would have finished with just 11 medals, or roughly 7 percent of the total medals awarded that year in those longer-term sports.With their medals in X-Games sports, Team USA were very nearly on top of the Winter Olympics world in 2014. Without those medals, they would have finished in a relatively pedestrian tie for sixth place.

Calgary ’88 was a low point — American athletes won just six medals. But all that mediocrity has been flipped on its head as the list of events grows.It should be said that the big air crowd aren’t the only American athletes responsible for this recent stretch of Winter Olympic team success (or who’ve benefited from events added to the games in the past three decades): Speedskaters like Apolo Anton Ohno and Shani Davis have had brilliant careers, and their achievements on ice also helped to augment Team USA’s recent medal hauls.To be sure, more traditional Winter Olympians like skiers Ted Ligety, Lindsey Vonn and Mikaela Shiffrin — and their predecessors like Tommy Moe, Picabo Street and Bode Miller — have assured that Team USA remains a threat in the Alpine events. The Americans aren’t exactly Austrians on the slopes, but they’re not exactly Bulgarians, either. But outside of the Alpine realm, don’t expect the Americans to impress in the more historic events: They’ve captured just one medal each in curling, ski jumping and cross-country skiing, and they’ve won exactly zero medals in biathlon.The cynical take is that this stuff looks really good on TV, and it’s all a big ratings grab for NBC, which has owned the U.S. broadcasting rights for the Winter Olympics since 2002. Whatever the impetus for adding new sports, and especially new extreme sports, the Americans continue to capitalize. It should be noted here that Canada has had a similar windfall: While the U.S. has totaled 64 medals in the events introduced in 1994 and beyond,4Through Thursday. Canada has captured 55.The Americans aren’t at the top of the medal table right now, but they still have events like ski aerials, ski slopestyle, ski halfpipe and the debut event of snowboarding big air — the most X-Games-y of X-Games-y sports — so there are plenty more opportunities to do what they do best. Now if only they could figure out how to slide a rock across a narrow sheet of ice toward a bullseye, they’d really be onto something. Medals BiathlonMass start women090.0 Freestyle skiingWomen’s slopestyle1333.3 Freestyle skiingMen’s halfpipe1333.3 Medals SnowboardingWomen’s snowboard cross1911.1 Every two years, the Olympics give Americans a chance to feel good about themselves. In the summer, U.S. swimmers and track stars consistently reign superior — and its gymnasts are usually right there, too. The American basketball team, now borrowed from the NBA, often seems like it could sleep through the first half and still coast past most of the other countries. Because of this, the U.S. has finished atop the medal table for every Summer Games since 1996.In the winter, the U.S. has grown accustomed to a similar degree of success, albeit not with nearly the same level of global domination. Since the U.S. hosted the 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake City, the Americans have finished no lower than second on the medal table, with the 2010 Vancouver Games providing a high-water mark of 37 medals. So far in Pyeongchang, Team USA has won eight medals through Thursday, and five of those medals were golden.But for anybody old enough to remember the Cold War, American success in the winter may seem a little odd. For decades, the U.S. was pretty, well, meh — never bad enough to get shut out, but more often than not looking up at the Soviets, Austrians and Norwegians. So what changed? The answer is obvious: It’s flying through the air, performing a chicken salad or a double Michalchuk.Since the 1990s, Americans have retained their stranglehold on sports you might see in a Mountain Dew ad. Freestyle skiing aerials were introduced in the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, and snowboarding came along four years later in Nagano, Japan — with more individual events added in these sports each winter cycle.From 1994 to 2014, the U.S. racked up 34 medals in those two disciplines, 18 of which came on the halfpipe alone.1Freestyle skiing and snowboard. The U.S. has been on the same track so far in South Korea. A pair of 17-year-olds named Chloe Kim and Red Gerard — who claimed Olympic gold in women’s halfpipe and men’s slopestyle, respectively — have been the emerging stars. Shaun White, meanwhile, avenged his forgettable performance in Sochi and returned to the top of the men’s halfpipe podium; Jamie Anderson snagged a gold in women’s slopestyle; and Arielle Gold stood next to teammate Kim on the halfpipe podium, a bronze slung around her neck.With those five freestyle medals in the bag, Team USA is well on its way to matching the 11 it won in Sochi. But even when you get away from the halfpipe, the U.S. has capitalized on other newly introduced events as well, such as two-woman bobsled, women’s ice hockey and skeleton.2Men’s skeleton appeared in 1928 and 1948 and returned for good in 2002, with the addition of women’s skeleton.

With just less than a minute remaining in the first half of the Ohio State men’s basketball game against Penn State, OSU sophomore guard Aaron Craft attempted to alley-oop freshman forward Sam Thompson about 35 feet from the basket. Thompson leapt to catch the ball, but Craft’s pass never made it into his hands. Instead, the pass landed in the hoop and was good for a 3-pointer. “Well, I got pretty lucky,” Craft said. It was that kind of night for the Buckeyes. No. 4-ranked OSU routed Penn State, 78-54, and moved into a share of the Big Ten lead. The 24-point victory is nothing new for the Buckeyes, especially at home. Not only are the Buckeyes undefeated at the Schottenstein Center, but only one team — Florida — has come closer than 17 points. The win moved OSU’s home record to 15-0 on the season and extended their home win streak to 37 games, the second-longest such streak in program history. PSU coach Patrick Chambers said playing at home is a huge advantage for any team. “The comforts of home and playing in this arena and the fans — it helps (OSU),” Chambers said. “It makes a difference. Going on the road in the Big Ten is absolutely brutal.” Defense led the way for the Buckeyes. PSU missed their first seven shots from the floor, and OSU jumped to an early 8-0 advantage. With six minutes remaining in the first half, PSU had managed just six points and was shooting less than 25 percent from the floor. OSU led at halftime, 38-18. Coming into the game, PSU junior guard Tim Frazier was the Big Ten’s leading scorer, averaging 18 points a game. Frazier got his points in the game, finishing with 16, but 11 of those came in the second half when Craft was only on the floor for six minutes. Craft contributed offensively as well, adding 11 points. Chambers said Frazier needs to bring it every night for his team to be successful and Craft got him out of his game. “I thought Craft did a great job on him.” Chambers said. “I think Craft got into Tim a little bit mentally and physically.” OSU coach Thad Matta agreed. “I thought Aaron was extremely effective,” Matta said. “I think (Frazier) had six points with 12 minutes to go and Aaron likes a good challenge. But for the majority of the game we gave him good support.” Craft made up for missing Thompson in the first half by throwing a lob from an inbounds play that Thompson caught high above the rim and finished with a one-hand jam. Thompson, who joked that he was a “decoy” on the first play, said he and Craft talked about the 35-footer at halftime. “I had a pretty good laugh about it,” Thompson said. “We just executed the play in the second half. The dunk gave OSU a 51-29 lead. Thompson finished with six points, two rebounds and three assists. Senior guard William Buford, who has been going through what some have described as a midseason slump, found his stroke from behind the arc, connecting on three 3-pointers. Buford had 15 points and 9 rebounds on the game. OSU sophomore forward Jared Sullinger left the game with just under 11 minutes remaining, but was still the Buckeyes’ high-point man, ending with 20 points and 13 rebounds. The win improves OSU’s overall record to 18-3 and its conference record to 6-2. The Buckeyes are now tied atop the Big Ten standings with Michigan, which travels to the Schottenstein Center Sunday for a 1 p.m. tipoff. The game, which is already sold-out, will have Big Ten title ramifications. “You always got to get up for Michigan,” Sullinger said. “Every sport at Ohio State and Michigan, if we clash it’s always a rivalry.”
Arsene Wenger, who publicly announced his departure from Arsenal, where he spent the last 22 years, has reportedly turned down a big-money offer from Paris Saint-Germain.It is believed there a three-year contract was offered to Wenger and if he was to accept, PSG would be paying him about 15 million euro per year – an offer not many can refuse.However, according to Football Fancast, he is desperately in need of a break as not only has he not taken any rest for the last two decades, but he has built a sentimental relationship with Arsenal.Opinion: Neymar will earn respect back from the PSG fans Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 After completing his incredible return to Parc des Princes, we predict that Neymar will earn the respect back from PSG supporters.The situation between Neymar…Facts are that Les Parisiens are in desperate need of a capable manager as they are currently regarded mostly as a joke – after all the money spent they are yet to win a single European trophy. Wenger is a perfect fit for the role as he has the needed experience to take care of such a squad and could possibly turn them into the top team in Europe.Considering the sum PSG are willing to pay for him and his refusal, it seems like PSG need Wenger way more than he needs them at the current moment.
