Is your credit union diverse?

first_imgHappy early Thanksgiving compliance friends!Earlier this month, NCUA hosted its first annual Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) summit. The agency described it as an event “where credit union and industry professionals who are committed to advancing diversity, equity and inclusion within the credit union system gathered to share best practices, challenges to advancing diversity, and learn how NCUA can support the industry in its efforts.” Executives from various credit unions across the country with a commitment to diversity and inclusion served as speakers and panelists at the summit. Some of the topics covered included the value of DE&I, best practices and methods for collecting diversity data, and the agency’s annual voluntary self-assessment. At the summit, NCUA Chairman Rodney Hood expressed that “financial inclusion is the civil rights issue of our era”, and announced the creation of an NCUA Culture Council.The information below may serve as a starting point for credit unions interested in learning more about DE&I and NCUA’s Annual Voluntary Credit Union Diversity Self-Assessment.What Does It Mean for a Credit Union to Be Diverse and Inclusive from an NCUA Perspective?Credit unions were founded on the premise of providing provident credit to members- any member. Legally, credit unions cannot discriminate as to who they lend to, but Dodd-Frank gave new emphasis on agencies looking at diversity from an employer perspective.

Victory for VanDeest at Marshalltown

first_imgMARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (July 8) – Racing at the Marshalltown Speedway on Friday night shared the Central Iowa Fairgrounds with the county fair.Chase Rudolf took the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod lead as the green flag flew, and was looking strong.  By lap five, he had 12th starting Jared VanDeest to contend with but continued to keep his lead.VanDeest was relentless, however, pestering Rudolf until finally making it pay off at lap 12, when he grabbed the lead. VanDeest was able to distance himself from the pack in the final handful of laps, and took the checkers and the win. Eleventh starting Cory Rose was runner-up and Rudolf was third.The 15-lap IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock event went to Adam Armstrong.  Armstrong, who has been racing a SportMod this season, jumped back into his Hobby Stock for the night and made the switch seem effortless.  He had the lead at lap seven, and then pulled away the remaining laps to take the easy win. Leah Wroten started ninth and took the runner-up spot. Gene Nicklaus took third.There was fast and furious racing in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car 20-lapper. Todd Reitzler led the race immediately but suddenly at lap two there was the 99D of Damon Murty on his tail.  Murty, who had started 12th, flew around the topside and began dogging Reitzler.Donavon Smith had also made big advances, getting to third and pressuring both Reitzler and Murty.  At lap nine, Reitzler’s night turned into a nightmare, when his car appeared to dig into the entry of turn one, and then he took a huge ride as the car rolled.  Thankfully, Reitzler emerged from the car unhurt.When racing picked back up, Murty was now the leader with Smith in second.  Murty returned to his topside run, Smith trying the low line, but it was all Murty’s race from there on out, as he crossed under the checkers first once again.  Smith kept the runner-up spot and third went to 10th starter Steve Meyer.No one should have been disappointed with the 20-lap Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified fea­ture action. Trent Jackson and Jimmy Gustin wowed the crowd with lap after lap of close racing before Jackson took the checkers ahead of Gustin and Jacob Murray.last_img read more

Is The iPad Mini The “Real” iPad?

first_imgRelated Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#Apple#iPad mini#Say Sweet 16 dan frommer Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Apple’s iPad mini goes on sale this Friday, and big questions for Apple include: How will it affect overall iPad sales? Will it cannibalize bigger, more expensive iPads? Will it sell out, despite a price premium over competitors like Amazon’s Kindle Fire?Based on early reviews, it appears the iPad mini is on the verge of becoming the “real” iPad. That is, the full-size iPad (“iPad classic”?) will still exist indefinitely, but most people will end up buying the iPad mini. It’s less expensive, easier to handle, with the main immediate tradeoff — lower display resolution — something that most people won’t hold against it, if they even notice it. (Let’s not forget that most people on the planet have never seen a retina display, let alone purchased a retina iPad.)Apple has, of course, seen this movie before. The iPod mini, introduced in 2004, was a catalyst that sent iPod sales through the roof, bringing millions of new buyers to the iPod and to Apple in general. It wasn’t perfect, either — it had a much smaller storage capacity than the bigger iPod, and wasn’t that much cheaper — but it was cheaper enough and fun and colorful and small and people loved it.In 2003, the year before the iPod mini launched, Apple shipped 1.5 million iPods. In 2004, after the iPod mini went on sale in February, Apple shipped 8.3 million iPods — more than 5X as many. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting That multiplier is probably not going to happen here: Apple has already shipped 58 million iPads over the past year, and I’m not sure Foxconn could even make 300 million iPads over the next year if Apple asked it to. But I wouldn’t be surprised if the iPad mini at least helped Apple double iPad sales year-over-year by the time supply and demand is in sync.There are many reasons why the iPad isn’t the iPod all over again, or at least not exactly the same story. These range from competition to supply constraints to overall growth of the mobile device market to Apple’s already massive popularity. But I think it’s safe to say the iPad mini is going to be huge for Apple — and huge for Tim Cook’s prediction that the tablet market will outgrow the PC market.This post originally appeared on Splat F with Dan Frommer.last_img read more

Aaj Tak Executive Producer Ajay Kumar on the highlights of 2010

first_imgConnect with the EditorWhat a year went by – scams, corruption – monetary and ethical – political harakiri, an air crash, rail accidents, natural disasters, rising prices and what not. But before we write off 2010 as a non-happening, disgusting and gloomy year for India, let’s look at how “Bharat” fared this year.It was a time of awakening for the hinterland – Bihar, to be precise. Did anyone ever imagine that people of this backward and written off state would exercise their democratic rights in a manner that defines the very essence of development and progress? That a state so divided in terms of caste, creed, birth, bigotry and bias, would rise up in arms against all those who have forced on this landmass a series of regression. That the people of Bihar would appreciate the fruits of development and give expression to their desire to be one with modern ‘India’. This is no mean feat for a state so seeped in corruption, underdevelopment and chaos.”Bharat” did really move India in 2010. Or else can one explain how the Indian contingent performed so well in both the Commonwealth Games and in the Asian Games. It was the determined talent from the small towns of Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab and Karnataka who stole the limelight. Be it boxing, wrestling, gymnastics, sprint race, hockey or shooting – Indians have never felt proud of their sportspersons as they did during these two sporting events. Likewise in cricket, players from little India or “Bharat” like M S Dhoni, Saurabh Tiwari, Munaf Patel, Sreesanth, Suresh Raina and Praveen Kumar stood tall over cricket stars from erstwhile cricket boards like Mumbai or Delhi. Had it not been for “Bharat” then at least in sports, India would have still trailed like in yesteryears.Even in economic terms, semi-urban “Bharat” fared much better than the so-called prosperous and economically vibrant India. Spending from semi-urban centres outstripped the metros. Demand picked up in the countryside and numerous B+ cities ordered many more Mercs and BMWs than the centres of wealth like Mumbai and Delhi. Naturally all corporate focus is gradually shifting towards the till now neglected “Bharat”.But alas, this rosy picture doesn’t take away the sting of increasing prices which destroyed the dreams and aspirations of middle-class India. Never before have prices of essential commodities risen so steeply as they have in 2010. Sugar, vegetables, pulses, wheat flour, petrol, diesel – everything went beyond the realms of middle India’s pocket and the government simply washed its hands off. Every three months, the Agriculture Minister and the Prime Minister assured the people that inflation would be brought under control, but prices kept moving northwards. As a matter of fact, the government neither bothered nor did it appear to be bothered about rising prices. So much for a government headed by an economist Prime Minister.People could have still digested uncontrollable price rise as income too grew in 2010. But the spate of scams, corruption and graft cases completely tarnished the brand equity of the honest Prime Minister – Manmohan Singh. His silence over the 2 G graft case, on former communication minister A Raja’s role in allocation of spectrum to favoured firms, the Radiagate expose and the role of movers and shakers in political, bureaucratic and journalist circles, exorbitant and humongous scale of corruption by the Commonwealth Games  Organising Committee, completely took off the stamp of incorruptible administrator. While the Congress party did try to send in a message that corruption will not be tolerated by removing Ashok Chavan from the hot seat in Maharashtra following the Adarsh society expose. To say that this washed away the tag of “chalta hai” approach by the government and the Congress is meaningless. After Bofors, these series of scams will be remembered for government’s inactivity and inept handling.In terms of judicial activism, 2010 saw some important and landmark decisions. The three-way formula suggested towards resolving the Ayodhya tangle is a luminary example of realism and pragmatism. Actually it would not be inappropriate to suggest that the entire controversy now seems irrelevant. The fast-paced Kasab trial and the overwhelmingly clear judgement on the role and active participation of certain sections of Pakistani establishment in perpetuating the horrors of Mumbai terror attack is worth remembering. This verdict has given the Indian investigative agencies huge leverage in terms of a concrete judgement, which can act as a basis for all future terror-related talks with Pakistan. But the recent mudslinging on former Chief Justice of India K.G. Balakrishnan with respect to A Raja’s pressurising a High Court Judge in Tamil Nadu, left a bitter taste in the end of the year. It also made us realise that all may not be above temptation.In this backdrop, the year 2011 may not hold much in its belly. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will have to unshackle himself from the image of a lame duck PM trying to survive Her Majesty’s Voice. Its’ time he came out of the shadows of the Congress President and encashed his own brand equity as an honest, upright, uncompromising administrator.Fiscal deficit may be bridged in the book by the sale of 3G spectrum in this financial year but fiscal policies and inflation still haunt the nation like never before. Announcement of policies like education to all, employment to all, unique ID to all need to be backed by concrete policy framework and affirmative action.On the foreign policy front, the Indian State needs to realise that being a stooge of the P-5 will not serve the national interest. All these heads of state came to India to generate business for their own countries. As a consumer, India needs to be aware of its rights and demand a fare share in the international order. Instead of being mere consumers of white goods and armaments, we should demand investment in infrastructure, core industries and sectors which drive employment in our country.Socially, the national drive needs to give space to the fairer sex. Let the parliamentarians finally accept the fact that repression is not the best policy. If Women’s Reservation Bill is accommodated to give due representation to our womenfolk, it will not eat into the spadework of male politicians.Another social, rather parochial, matter of national importance is the so-called “honour killing”. Can anyone in his/her rational mind explain the vengefulness exhibited by literate and educated parents killing their own off-spring? Hopefully this year and the years to come will see a marked departure from such social evils.The wishlist can go on and on. But the moot point is India and “Bharat” need to move in sync. And it’s the people who make modern nation states. So kudos to the people of India who have shown marked resilience in past and made huge departures. Hopefully, we shall see many more.last_img read more
