Small businesses can get rate break from Chase on Amex transactions

A global payment company will give members of Canada’s largest small- and medium-business association lower rates on American Express transactions.Chase Merchant Services will charge a new lower rate to Canadian Federation of Independent Business members that process less than $500,000 in Amex transactions.CFIB says the deal aims to make it easier for small businesses to accept Chase payment cards.CFIB president Dan Kelly says the partnership means many of the federation’s members could see significant savings thanks to the offer, with some members potentially seeing fees reduced by almost 50 per cent.“This new deal is a big step forward for small business and recognizes their importance to the Canadian economy,” Kelly said. “Many of our members could see significant savings with the new offer. This will benefit CFIB members by lowering the cost of offering Amex as a payment option, while ultimately providing value to consumers with greater access and payment choice.”Retailers pay fees each time consumers use a credit card. The fees differ based on type of credit card, business and other considerations.As well, Amex transactions delivered through Chase will be processed quickly, give merchants next-day payment in most cases, and administration time will be cut by having one statement only, covering both Amex and Chase transactions.The retail industry has been advocating for lower fees, arguing that Canadian businesses pay some of the highest fees worldwide.CFIB’s 110,000 members collectively process more than $12 billion in electronic payments through Chase every year.More information on the agreement can be found here. — with files from Financial Post staff read more

Dotting the i Raekwon McMillan a field general of OSU defense

OSU junior linebacker Raekwon McMillan (5) encourages Buckeyes fans to make noise during the second half against Indiana on Oct. 8. The Buckeyes won 38-17. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorFew players have such a profound impact from the moment they walk on the field as junior linebacker Raekwon McMillan has had for Ohio State. The unquestioned leader at the helm of the “Silver Bullets,” OSU’s defensive nickname, McMillan has been named as a semifinalist for the Butkis Award, the top award for linebackers at the collegiate level.Playing middle linebacker is an already daunting task for any team, but at OSU it is a key to the success for the Buckeyes. On Saturday’s game against Northwestern, McMillan reacted to a play action fake pass, which ultimately led to a turnover.That relatively simple play might have seemed pedestrian to the outside eye, but the junior said otherwise to the media on Monday.“I had the B-gap,” McMillan said. “So if the quarterback would have handed the ball to the running back in that situation, I would have had to tackle the running back in that gap. But it’s a mesh point, so the quarterback pulled the ball when he saw me come up. He’s kind of reading me the whole play to see if I’m going to be in my zone.”McMillan said once he read the play, he reacted to Northwestern quarterback Clayton Thorson going back to pass and jumped in the way, causing the deflection that ended in an easy interception for redshirt freshman cornerback Damon Arnette.Before every play, there is anywhere from a few moments to 25 seconds for the ball to be snapped, although most college teams put an emphasis on getting the ball snapped quickly. For a player like McMillan, those few moments before the play begins are vital in his role as the man in the middle.About five seconds before the snap, McMillan is responsible for reading the offensive formation, among many other duties. To start, he has to get the call from co-defensive coordinator Luke Fickell,  and relay that message to his unit and the defensive line in front of him to set them up in the proper stance. He also said from there, he is usually directing the strongside linebacker as well as the “backside safety.”“Once I’ve communicated to them, that’s when I go through the eyes, feet and body positioning with their line and see if I can get some keys on the play they’re going to run,” McMillan said. “Once I get that, then I’m in a different mode. It’s time to lock in, it’s time to go make the play.”That list of responsibilities could easily result in the occasional slip-up. McMillan received scrutiny during and following the Wisconsin game after Badgers’ wide receiver Jazz Peavy ripped-up the Buckeyes defense in the first half with an end-around.According to McMillan, he was just doing his job.“When Wisconsin was running the jet-sweep, and everybody was saying I was getting misreads, like I clearly had the A-gap,” McMillan said through a smile. If he were to bust off his trajectory and try to take out the sweep, he said he would not be doing his job. The commitment to staying true to his role and his assignment has caught the eye of his teammates.Junior defensive end Jalyn Holmes, who came in the 2014 recruiting class with McMillan, looks up to him as a friend and as a leader.“What do I do pre-snap?” he said when asked about his routine before a play. “Wait for Raekwon to tell me to do.”McMillan has earned 51 total tackles so far this season, which is technically a “down” year for the Georgia native. Last season he had 74 tackles through eight games, as well as a sack. With some outside criticism being thrown his way, it would be easy for him to start worrying about his level of play.Instead, McMillan plays it off with a grin and a joke.“If I ask y’all, I’m having the worst season in the world,” he said. read more

HSE to fund bilateral cochlear implants for 100 children

first_imgTHE HSE HAS allocated €3.2 million for bicochlear implants in its 2014 service plan, news that has been welcomed by parents of children with hearing issues.Deanna Cairns, whose son Billy has one cochlear implant and is on the waiting list for a second implant, is a member of the Happy New Ear campaign. The parents behind Happy New Ear are campaigning for bilateral (two) cochlear implants to be offered to children as standard.Today, Cairns told TheJournal.ie: “We are delighted, now they have come into line as best practice. It wasn’t the full amount we wanted but at least bilaterals can start being rolled out now.”“I have to say it has been a hard year,” said Cairns.Happy New Ear said: “After a year of constant campaigning, fighting, meetings, petitions and begging we are thrilled with today’s outcome. No more second best for Irish children.” The programme will take time to set up but it is envisaged that the first simultaneous cochlear implant surgery, where they implant both ears at the same time, will take place in May, and the first sequential implant surgery, where the recipient already has an implant, will commence in August. We have been helped along the way by so many people- TDs, journalists, parents and well wishers and we would like to thank them all for their support throughout the campaign.They gave thanks to the Joint Committee established by Gerry Adams and to all the HSE staff who met with them, as well as the Minister For Health James Reilly.“We know he was under more pressure than ever in this budget, and appreciate this more than words can say,” the parents said.Tony O’Brien, Director General of the HSE, said that around 100 children will benefit from the funding, with 50 sequential and 50 simultaneous cochlear implants to be fitted in 2014.They are hopeful that from next year, the number of surgeries will be increased. There are thought to be around 200 children in need of a second cochlear implant at the moment.The Cairns family are now hopeful that Billy will be able to get his second implant. “It’s like the best Christmas present ever,” said his mum.Keith McCormack, the father of a boy whose hearing problems were not acted on by health professionals for 17 months said that the news is good news.“Any cuts in health spending for the country as a whole are a bad thing but if indeed the HSE is setting aside €3.2million to help those in need of bilateral cochlear implants then it will give a ray of hope to them, especially at Christmas,” he said.He added that anything that will give children who may have been failed during their health journey “a chance to succeed, should be welcomed”.“We will have to wait and see how this bilateral implant programme is to be rolled out in detail,” he added. “My little boy Liam and the other children are quite literally in a race against time for this as whatever good nerve endings that they have are continually degrading.”Read: Silent protest outside Dáil today over childrens’ cochlear implants funding>Read: HSE still reviewing where €108m ‘unspecified’ pay savings can be found in 2014>last_img read more

Kinect has sold a million units since launch

first_imgThere’s a lot of valid complaints to level at the Kinect, Microsoft’s recently released gesture-control accessory for the Xbox 360. Its field of view is limited, its voice recognition is spotty, its prone to lag, its more expensive than the competition and its launch titles are lackluster.None of that seems to matter to the general populace though: Microsoft has just announced that the Kinect seems to be selling out across the country. In fact, it’s outselling the PlayStation Move by a factor of about three to one: Microsoft says that in the first ten days of sales, the Kinect has already moved a million units.AdChoices广告It’s worth noting that that number’s going to get even more enormous: Black Friday hasn’t even landed, and the holiday shopping system is still ahead of us. It seems likely that by the time Christmas rolls around, Microsoft will manage to triple that number.Like I said, there’s a lot of legitimate grousing to be done about the Kinect, but a lot of that has to do with Microsoft reaching for the stars with the technology this time around… and so some of the Kinect’s failures are understandable. One thing’s for sure: with a million units in the wild, developers will be galvanized to really master the technology of the Kinect and correct some of its current shortcomings. For all my skepticism, it looks like Microsoft may very well manage to pull the Kinect off and out-Wii the Wii after all.Read more at Microsoftlast_img read more

Scythe to offer transparent open air desktop PC case

first_imgTransparent cases seemed to be all the rage a few years ago, but I never invested in one mainly because they carried a premium price. They also only looked great if you added a bunch of lights inside, and even then you’d probably end up hiding the case under your desk.Now Japanese manufacturer Scythe is launching a rather unusual new transparent case that has an additional feature: it’s an open case. What that means is there are no side panels to encase the components. Instead, everything is left open to the air (and dust) around them.The Scythe ACB-TYPE3 may seem like a mistake from a dust point of view, but it could be the ideal case for someone who regularly tests different components and wants quick access to them. It also opens up the cooling options you have somewhat. For example, you could mount as big a fan as you want on the side of this case, or even completely independently of it.While open, it’s certainly not small and has space for three 5-inch drives, three 3.5″ drives, and two 2.5″ drives. It will work with ATX, micro-ATX, and mini-ITX boards and there’s no chance of you breaking it due to the use of 5mm thick acrylic. In terms of weight, there’s definitely a saving due to it being an open case. As a comparison, the fully-enclosed transparent Scythe ACC-ATX case weighs 5.2kg. The ACB-TYPE3 is only 3.4kg.For the moment the ACB-TYPE3 is only appearing on the Japanese Scythe website, but it’s likely a number of component stores will order stock. It’s certainly a different take on a PC case and one some rig builders are sure to want to experiment with, especially as the price tag is only $85.Read more at Scythe, via FanlessTechlast_img read more

Are these rally images ALSO photoshopped

first_img ALF, the Three Stooges and Mickey Mouse all support Johnny in this real photo. (via Facebook) After Johnny Araya’s Facebook page posted aseemingly doctored photo of  a huge rally for the presidential candidate, critics didn’t waste any time before reacting. Using much better Photoshop skills then Araya’s opponents accused his campaign team of using, quick-witted Costa Ricans created their own versions of what happened at the rally. Mickey Mouse, Justin Bieber and Pope Francis all were there. An anti-Araya Facebook page seems to be keeping tabs on these recently surfaced images.Responding on his Facebook page Tuesday night, Araya (or whoever manages his page) said the photo in question was indeed real.But Costa Ricans never miss a chance to turn a current event into a hilarious meme.  Regardless, Araya might have the last laugh.

Derrick Hall satisfied with Dbacks buying and se
