Golden 1 introduced a Pay Disruption Assistance Program and Noble works with members on a case-by-case basis.At R.I.A. Federal Credit Union in Rock Island, Ill, members with existing loans can defer payment up to 60 days. The credit union will also reduce the loan rate or payment for up to six months, and it introduced a special payroll-impaired loan for up to $3,500 at 5.99% for up to 18 months.IH Mississippi Valley Credit Union, in Moline, Ill., offers affected members a 12-month, 1.99% annual percentage rate government payroll assistance loan up to $5,000. To qualify, members need to have their government payroll directly deposited into a credit union account or provide a paystub or proof of their furlough from their government agency. If members do not need payroll assistance but have a loan at the credit union, they may defer one monthly payment of any consumer loan at no charge.last_img read more

The 3 people you shouldn’t hire

first_imgThere can be a lot of pressure on you when you’re interviewing job candidates, especially if you’re having to replace a great employee. No matter what position you’re hiring for, you want to make sure you find a candidate that’s not only a good fit for the position but a good fit for your team and your company culture. There are a lot of good options to hire, but here are three people you might want to avoid…The (too) quiet person:  It’s not a crime to be a little shy (it’s def better than saying really dumb things), but when a candidate wants to make a good impression, it’s a good idea to have something to say. Look for the candidate who is delivering great answers and asking great questions. If someone really wants to fill your opening, they’ll be prepared with plenty to say.The brown noser: When I was a kid, I used to love reruns of classic sit-coms like Leave it to Beaver. If you’re familiar with the show, then you probably remember Eddie Haskell. He was the guy who was a little sleazy but always turned on the fake charm whenever there were parents around. A job candidate who says exactly what they think you want to hear is definitely not the right person to join your team. It’s usually pretty easy to spot someone who’s faking it. Find someone who feels like a good fit and doesn’t seem deceptive.The Negative Nancy: You would think that anyone interviewing for a job would try to have a positive outlook. For some, they see a job interview as an opportunity to complain about their current/previous workplace. If they have a legitimate reason to complain that may be one thing, but I’d bet they’re probably the type of person who’s going to look for the negative anywhere they work. Think about whether or not you want someone like that on your staff. 5SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for CUInsight.com.

Lending Perspectives: Preparing your portfolio for the next recession

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr We have now entered year 10 of the recovery since The Great Recession, which is fairly unprecedented territory when it comes to an economic expansion. Many lenders in the industry have already been making preparations the last several years for the next recession. A variety of auto lenders pulled back their sub-prime lending as early as 2016 for fear of the next recession; sub-prime loans typically don’t survive a recession very well.From past experience, some credit unions tend to be a little late to the party, so to speak, when it comes to preparing for a recession. We tend to be act like eternal optimists until we take a serious hit; I’m thinking of the famous Mike Tyson quote about everyone having a plan until they get punched in the mouth. Sometimes, as lenders, we’re in denial that the economy will ever take a breath and experience some contraction. For others, trying to squeeze every drop of loan growth out of the economy is of utmost importance; resulting collection problems are something to worry about next year. Frankly, this has never been a problem for me; I like to joke that I’ve predicted five out of the last three recessions.For those realists who want to start preparing now, how can you be sure your credit union will ultimately be ready? I’ve seen too many unprepared credit unions suffer in a downturn in my 30 years in the credit union movement and, more importantly, heard of too many members affected as their credit union is more focused on fixing their portfolio than lending money. To evaluate your preparedness, honestly assess your credit union in these four areas: continue reading »last_img read more

TZ Bakra is the first in Croatia to organize a licensed Interpret Europe course for guide interpreters

first_imgAware of the fact that the world heritage has been presented to a wider audience for a long time and that the greatest asset for overcoming the tourist isolation of Bakar is its rich natural and cultural heritage, the Tourist Board of Bakar and the City of Bakar have recognized the need for quality education of tourist guides. museum staff and staff in nature parks.Therefore, in cooperation with the first interpretation guide and coach in Croatia and the author of popular “Secret Zagreb” tours, Ivo Silla, they decided to organize a licensed Interpret Europe course “Guide interpreter” which will be held in October and November in Bakar. That’s right In July, the Tourist Board of the City of Bakar filled all places for the Interpret Europe licensed course “Guide interpreter” which will be held in Bakar in October and thus became the first destination in Croatia to independently organize a licensed Interpret Europe course for guide interpreters.Costumed themed tours, visitor centers, storytelling, workshops, ecomuseums – all this is the interpretation of heritage, ie the way in which natural and historical heritage is “translated” into a language understood by the local population of all generations (especially children and youth) and visitors and tourists Interpret Europe is a European professional association that brings together about 500 professionals in the field of heritage interpretation from 45 countries and through a series of courses held by their members in their countries conducts various trainings with the aim of better interpretation of heritage, indispensable. part of cultural tourism.In this way, the Tourist Board of the City of Bakar is actively involved in the development of heritage interpretation in the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County with the desire that Bakar emerges from decades of tourist isolation through interpretive guides and other professionals who will reveal rich Bakar heritage to visitors. which are actually the essence of tourism.”Tečaj in Bakar will be the first Interpret Europe course for interpretive guides in Croatia organized exclusively by Croatian organizers. Although we are one of the smallest tourist boards, and our tourism development lags far behind that in Kvarner, we are proud that we, together with the City of Bakar, organized education which is a prerequisite for the development of quality, strategically oriented tourism in our area. In this context, we are extremely pleased with the recent publication of an article in the newsletter of the Intepret Europe association in which Iva Silla and expert for the promotion of interpreted heritage Silvija Jacić presented activities in the field of heritage interpretation that we launched in Bakar such as Ponikva Educational Trail Walks through history or a program for children called “Little Naval Battle”. We intend to continue and develop all of them, as well as some new ones like this course, even more intensively, into quality tourist products.”Emphasized the director of the Tourist Board of the City of Bakar, Sonja Jelušić Marić.Through 40 hours of theoretical and practical classes, trainer Iva Silla will teach students the skills of interpretive guidance that are achieved through interpretive techniques and methods and the search for unique properties of phenomena and objects. The course also includes non-personal interpretation, understanding groups of visitors with special needs, and learning about sustainability and the use of interpretive criticism. At the end of the course, participants will be trained to plan and perform interpretive guidance, which will raise the quality of their work and bring stronger memories and new experiences to visitors. All guides, participants of the course, after successful passing become certified interpretation guides, and those who are not engaged in leadership will gain useful knowledge about the interpretation of heritage. At the same time, in newsletter of this important European association, a text was published on the increasingly intensive interpretation of the cultural and natural heritage of the City of Bakar, which is becoming its main tourist asset.RELATED NEWS:last_img read more

Six months into anti-virus fight, Korea gears up for long fight

first_imgTopics : The fight against the COVID-19 for the past six months feels like running 10 kilometers of a marathon “at full speed” said Jeong Eun-kyeong, chief of Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The most pressing task is to secure medical professionals and hospital beds to treat seriously ill patients, as well as other personnel to trace, test and treat COVID-19 patients, she said at a briefing Monday. Monday marks six months since Korea reported the first COVID-19 case on Jan. 20. “In the situation where COVID-19 is raging worldwide and a long fight is inevitable, our goal is to contain and control the size and pace of the virus outbreaks to a level where our medical, quarantine and social systems can manage them so that we can protect lives of those in high-risk groups — such as the elderly — and minimize the social and economic fallout,” she saidThe most pressing challenges are to develop a vaccine and treatment for the COVID-19 patients, as well as to build up medical capacity to be prepared for a spike in the COVID-19 patients. Not to overwhelm the country’s health system and better cope with the prolonged pandemic, the country needs to secure more medical professionals in looking after seriously ill patients as well as hospital beds, she pointed out. She also noted the need to change the country’s institutions, culture and social practices for citizens to be able to keep personal hygiene and maintain physical distance with others in their daily lives. She referred to support for more paid holidays or telecommuting as examples. For about a month after Korea saw the first COVID-19 patient on Jan. 20, the country reported about 30 cases for the month — about 1.03 persons a day — mostly coming from China.The virus situation began to get serious in mid-February as hundreds of new cases were reported a day in connection with the country’s largest-yet cluster — a branch of Shincheonji Church of Jesus in Daegu. So far, a total of 5,213 people were linked to the cluster. Two other major clusters — Cheongdo Daenam Hospital in North Gyeongsang Province and a call center in southwestern Seoul – also drove up the number of new cases. From Feb. 18 to May 5, it saw about 138.13 daily cases on average a day. Coupled with the country’s efforts to rapidly and extensively trace, test and treat COVID-19 patients, the government put in place a social distancing campaign in late February through early May. On April 1, it required all international arrivals to self-quarantine for two weeks — regardless of nationality — as part of efforts to stem the continued influx of imported cases. The efforts helped Korea largely bring the coronavirus under control until the number of cases began to spike again after a long holiday in early May. The virus transmission that began at bars and clubs in Seoul’s party district led to outbreaks at logistics centers, churches and door-to-door sales events. Since May 6, the country saw about 39.29 cases a day on average until Monday. On Monday, Korea reported 26 new COVID-19 cases, with 22 imported from overseas and four locally transmitted, according to the KCDC. The total caseload rose to 13,771. Of the 22 imported cases, 10 were detected during the quarantine screening process at the border and the rest while the individuals were under mandatory self-quarantine in Korea. Eighteen of them were from Asia — including 9 from the Philippines, three from Pakistan, two from Iraq, two from Kazakhstan and one from Indonesia. Two were from the United States and two from Mexico.For the past two weeks, 59.5 percent of the COVID-19 cases were imported from overseas. Of the country’s total 2,067 imported cases, 39 percent of them have come from Asia excluding China, followed by the Americas at 33.9 percent, Europe at 24.8 percent, Africa at 1.3 percent and China at 0.9 percent. Some 53.6 percent of the cases were detected after people entered the country, while the rest were found during the quarantine screening process at the border. The vast majority of the cases, or 68.2 percent, involved Korean nationals.As part of efforts to stem the imported cases, starting Monday, the government added two more countries to the list of “high-risk” countries, requiring those coming from the countries to submit a certificate issued within 48 hours proving they tested negative for the coronavirus.As for locally transmitted cases, two were registered in Seoul, one each in Gwangju and South Jeolla Province. So far, 12,572 people, or 91.3 percent, have been released from quarantine after making full recoveries, up 16 from a day earlier. Some 903 people are receiving medical treatment under quarantine.One more person died, raising the death toll to 296. The overall fatality rate stands at 2.15 percent — 2.56 percent for men and 1.82 percent for women. The rate is much higher for those in their 80s or over — 25.26 percent — and those in their 70s — 9.55 percent.The country has carried out 1,470,193 tests since Jan. 3, with 21,302 people awaiting results as of Wednesday.last_img read more

Seventh heaven as the Trolley keeps growing

First day operations were nearly flawless, with standing-room-only crowds by noon.MVW is perhaps the most ambitious project yet undertaken by the Metropolitan Transit Development Board since revenue service began on the initial San Diego Trolley line between downtown and San Ysidro on the Mexican frontier in July 1981. During the past two decades, starting when the MTDB was founded to develop the LRT network, planning and/or construction have been virtually continuous: this is the seventh extension.However, MVW is dramatically different and posed a significant engineering challenge to MTDB. At $220m, the price was quite high compared to the penurious standard set during the construction of previous segments, which were mostly built at-grade along existing railway rights-of-way and city streets.’The extension represents a move away from the use and reuse of existing railroad corridors and trying to fit into existing and future developments,’ says MTDB General Manager Thomas F Larwin. ’The higher cost of this new project is going to prove to be very cost beneficial over time because of the way it fits into development. We will do more to shape travel habits … using transit in more significant ways than I think we have been able to do with existing portions of the system.’MVW required two long and expensive viaducts, both of which include stations. They cross the sprawling car parks of the Fashion Valley shopping centre, which is also the site of a regional transit interchange, and Qualcomm Stadium, home of the city’s baseball and football teams and a projected source of substantial ridership.The scenic route parallels the environmentally sensitive San Diego River, where a number of costly mitigation efforts were required to preserve wetlands and wildlife habitats as well as minimising potential traffic and flooding impacts. In addition, three major bridges and a road underpass were needed. Thus 40% of the 9.8 route-km is located above or below grade and there are just two level crossings.Integrated stationsThere are seven new stations which are located next to various activity venues. These include three large shopping centres at Fashion Valley, Hazard Centre and Mission Valley – the last of these requiring two bridges to take the line across the river. Other stops serve existing and future residential and commercial complexes. Sites for two more stations have been reserved, to serve the Riverwalk Golf Club and the planned Mission City development.The $9.2m station at Qualcomm Stadium has ramps and stairways leading from ground level to a spacious mezzanine circulating area and thence to a wide centre platform and two side platforms. This, combined with sidings at each end having a capacity of 18 cars waiting for an event to end, will allow up to 6000 passengers to be removed within 30min. At other times the stadium’s spacious car park is used as a park-and-ride facility.MVW is expected to generate an average of around 6000 daily boardings. Ridership figures had not been released when this article went to press, but just one week after the opening a November 30 football game saw more than 5 000 fans arrive by rail.Prior to MVW, the Trolley’s average weekday ridership was nearly 56000, with Saturday and Sunday patronage around 90% and 80% of this respectively. An all-time record was reached in July 1997, when weekday boardings for the entire month averaged 62 500. Total traffic for the fiscal year to September 30 1997 was 18.3 million passengers. The Trolley’s farebox recovery rate is currently 67%, which is impressive for North America but below the legendary highs of around 90% recorded during the early 1980s when only the line to San Ysidro was in operation.Concurrent with the opening of MVW, MTDB has initiated a colour coding of its lines. MVW forms part of the 41.1 km Blue line, which runs north from the frontier at San Ysidro via central San Diego to Old Town, then east to Mission San Diego station at the end of the new extension. The 35.8 km Orange line starts from Imperial & 12th and heads west along the Bayside route serving the downtown waterfront, where a large conference centre is located. It then loops back through the city centre and serves various eastern suburbs before terminating in the city of Santee.The two Trolley routes meet at the former Santa Fe railway station, which now forms the city’s central transport hub. There is a cross-platform connection with the frequent Amtrak service to Los Angeles and the Coaster commuter trains to Oceanside. A few steps away are numerous San Diego Transit bus lines.Trams generally operate on a 15min headway, although at peak hours there is a 7.5 min service on the Blue Line between San Ysidro and Old Town. The basic headway falls to 30min during late evenings and weekend mornings, and at all times on the Orange Line beyond El Cajon to Santee.Expansion continuesPlanning is at an advanced stage for two more extensions, known as Mission Valley East and Mid-Coast. The 9.3 km MVE will complete the Mission Valley route, and connect to the Orange line at Grossmont Centre station in the city of La Mesa. In October the MTDB board officially selected light rail as the locally-preferred alternative for this corridor and made it the next construction priority. With an environmental impact report already completed, the next step will be the start of preliminary engineering work later this year.The four-station MVE has been costed at $267m. Much of this is accounted for by a 1.5 km tunnel and station beneath the San Diego State University campus, a first for the Trolley. As with MVW, there will be numerous elevated structures. Construction is tentatively set to begin in 2001 and be completed three years later, although the project might be broken into two segments depending on the availability of funding. However, Larwin is anxious to complete the line earlier if possible, and says he intends to pursue some type of public-private partnership, possibly including a design-build arrangement.The Mid-Coast LRT project will follow the MVE, although the initial three-station segment costing nearly $91m is already in preliminary engineering. This line would leave the Mission Valley route at the San Diego River and head north 5.5 km to Balboa Avenue within the San Diego Northern railway right-of-way, already owned by MTDB. The 11.6 km second segment to University City, with a price tag of more than $264m, will follow an alignment adjacent to the Interstate 5 highway.In the more distant future is a possible spur to the airport, which will be financed by the Port District. This will probably adopt some form of peoplemover to shuttle passengers to the nearest Trolley station. Also being studied is a long inland corridor following Interstate 15 all the way to Escondido in the north of San Diego County. Light rail or higher speed interurban trains are a possibility along all or part of the route but HOV lanes carrying express buses seem more likely, at least as an interim, given the uncertainty of funding at both local and federal levels. A preferred alternative is due to be selected in mid-1999.Future light rail projects yet to be studied include the South Bay Extension, which would loop through National City and Chula Vista, inland from the existing Blue line to San Ysidro. This might also serve a second border crossing point to the Mexican city of Tijuana. The Mira Mesa corridor would extend the Mid-Coast line inland from University City along Mira Mesa Boulevard to meet the I-15 corridor. In a November statement MTDB confirmed its long term goal: ’by 2010, if funding permits, the San Diego region would be served by a 113 km light rail network and a 69 km commuter rail route. This network is incorporated in the Regional Rail Transit Plan, revised every two years by the San Diego Association of Governments.’Widespread and ongoing political support of the Trolley and its programme of incremental expansion has helped lead it to success. It’s a plan which Larwin, who has been with MTDB for 18 years, enthusiastically supports. ’Yes, you make some mistakes but you get a chance to correct them’, he says. ’They’re not as big as they might be if you were to do a real big system all at once. You can learn as you grow. I think it’s proven to be very worthwhile.’last_img read more

Man United goalie crashes £170,000 Lamborghini on the way to training

first_img The incident happened near the club’s Carrington training ground on a very cold and potentially icy morning in Manchester, with the number two goalkeeper’s car ending up underneath a roadside barrier. He’s done very well to come away from the incident without any injuries and according to BBC Sports reporter Simon Stone he still managed to make it into training. Romero has played nine times in all competitions this season, playing in the Europa League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup, and kept seven clean sheets in those games with United winning all but two, both of which were draws. The 32-year-old signed for the Premier League in 2015 as back up for David de Gea and he’s been considered the best back up keeper in football throughout that time, stepping in brilliantly whenever needed.
