Focus on the future

first_imgTime doesn’t stand still. While it’s easy to focus solely on members and the work directly in front of us, we must keep an eye toward the future.That means anticipating and adapting to trends in technology— whether it’s payments, mobile apps, or your website.But it also means cultivating and retaining top talent. Like it or not, our current credit union leaders will not be here to serve the industry forever.At some point—and for some credit unions, at a point very soon—these folks will retire and the industry will need to have successors ready to take their place.That’s why we must identify and mentor those who will guide this movement into the future.We need to empower those who will one day pick up the reins and play key roles in the growth of our industry, in developing solutions to new business needs, and in making a difference in our advocacy efforts. continue reading » 17SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Broome County parks see increase in boat rentals

first_img“Dorchester Park alone, boating revenue we matched in the first five days what we did in July 2019 last year. So we’ve definitely seen increases in attendance, revenue, and just across the board,” said Woidt. Since there has been an increase in people, Broome County Parks had more spots to fill this summer. She says one reason for the increase could be because boating allows for social distancing. “It’s a really safe activity — you can come with your immediate household. Our crews are sanitizing the boats between each use, sanitizing the life jackets. Once you get out on your boat, you’re out on the lake, and it’s very easy to distance from everyone else that’s out there,” she said. “This year we’re fully staffed with our lifeguards, and we’ve added extra. With social distancing, we want to be able to open all of our sections so people can safely go swimming in the water, social distance from each other. Same with our laborers, we’re fully staffed there because we have a lot of extra cleaning protocols we’ve put into place this year,” said Woidt.

Broome County Parks says they have seen a significant increase in both attendance and boat rentals in the past few months. (WBNG) — More people are looking to get out on the water this summer. “People aren’t traveling as much this year with everything going on, so I think they’re really utilizing the local parks to get out, just get away from the house, get outside and just enjoy the outdoors,” said Woidt. Director of Parks, Recreation, and Youth Services Liz Woidt says Dorchester Park has seen the spike first hand. Due to the pandemic, many people are looking for ways to take advantage of the outdoors while staying close to home.last_img read more

Parents who took children out of school have court cases thrown out (UK)

first_imgDaily Mail 3 May 2016Family First Comment: Interesting case in the UK which could have some influence on any similar case in NZ.“The parents’ legal victory comes after father Jon Platt had the £120 fine he received for taking his seven-year-old daughter to Disney World during term time overturned in October last year. Mr Platt, from Nettlestone, Isle of Wight, had to travel during term because there was no other date when all the relatives would be available, but the girl’s school on the island refused to sign off on her absence.”Parents who were facing prosecution for taking their children out of school during term time have had their cases thrown out of court in a landmark ruling.Two couples were put on trial after council welfare officers in Swindon, Wiltshire accused them of failing to secure regular attendance for their children because they had pulled the youngsters out of class.However, magistrates have now said the case can not proceed because there is no legal benchmark for what constitutes ‘persistent’ absence.The ruling could cast doubt on many similar prosecutions being pursued against parents across the country.The first couple’s child, who is of secondary school age, was pulled out of class for a five-day holiday in October last year without written permission, the court heard.READ MORE: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3569590/Parents-prosecuted-taking-children-school-term-time-cases-thrown-court-landmark-ruling.htmllast_img read more

Do Nice Guys Always Finish Last?

first_imgLifestyleRelationships Do Nice Guys Always Finish Last? by: – September 7, 2011 Share Share Tweet Sharecenter_img Sharing is caring! 72 Views   no discussions Do Nice Guys Finish Last? DUH!A while back, I asked these questions on behalf of men everywhere, which led to very heated responses from people all across the nation. By the way, my inbox thanks you for the work out. One of the questions breathed life into a fairly common debate: Do nice guys finish last?Well, nice guys may not always finish last, but they’re fairly accustomed to watching other guys cross the finish line before them. The essence of my question was this:“Why do you always say you want a nice guy with a sense of humor, but only go out with the jerk…..?”Let me share a few responses:“Most girls, including me, fall for the jerks for one simple reason, we have been hurt so many times… that when a guy that is sweet, has a sense of humor, and loves us for who we are, comes along… we run. We are afraid and in turn we end up with the jerk. If someone could knock some sense into us… that would be wonderful.” – Punchick1022“Nice guy is not equivalent to “door mat.” You should be funny, considerate of others, and be able to stand by your convictions. That’s my version of a “nice guy.” A guy who just dotes on you and caters to your every whim and never disagrees with you is a door mat, and completely boring. So no, we don’t want a real (jerk), we want someone who will stand up for what they believe in. Passion is sexy. Even if you lost the argument/debate in the end, you still made a go of it. That’s what’s important. And personally, I’m opinionated, confident, and assertive. I need a guy who won’t back down to my strong personality, but will stand up to do the dance with me. I like a little bit of fire and conflict. I need it to balance a relationship properly” – Erin“Bad boys have the confidence that funny guys lack. Confidence in men is very, very hot!” – Alicia“Guys with bad temper and/or are (jerks) are passionate and usually have a great sense of humor. Guys with only a good sense of humor are usually too nice and do not present a challenge.” – eMCBEE“I suspect, one of the reasons why girls go for ill-tempered a&%holes with no sense of humor is cuz they fall for the pretty face and the hot bods first( and then they) realize the dude’s a (jerk.) Or the bigger truth is that women think they are that special one to tame the wild horse…but sadly, that usually doesn’t happen and it takes a few relationships for us women to realize wild horses can’t be tamed.” – Doreen KThere were hundreds of similar reactions. Women admitted to regularly eschewing the “nice guy” for the bad boy. The bad boy who, by the way, eventually screws up so often with so many women that his template is the one an alarming number of women use as the basic framework of most men. The bulk of the respondents also say that they eventually grow out of their bad boy phase. I can hear it now, “Marcus you’re generalizing!”Yes I am.Listen, these generalizations begin somewhere, don’t they? There are true generalizations and there are false generalizations. This one happens to be mostly true. Easy. The real question is : Why is being “nice” synonymous to being “soft” or a “door mat?” How did that one start? What’s even more ridiculous is that so many guys are conditioned to believe the mythology – so they perpetrate the myth themselves by acting in that bad boy way because so many women are attracted to the cocky, loudmouth rather than the humble, confident dude.And I can tell you this; guys are always going to do the things that they believe are attractive to women. Comedian Dave Chappelle put it best. “Men like nice cars because women like men…who drive nice cars.” BINGO! If today we found out that women are hot for guys with one eye, the eye removal Industry would shoot through the roof! This puts women in a powerful position.So do nice guys finish last? My answer is….usually. I mean sure, there are the guys who break through the stereotype eventually. Usually it’s later in life after the bad boys have already abused millions of hearts and emotions, so that Mr. Nice Guy is finally viewed as the top preference. Hey, it’s not where you start, it’s where you finish, right? One could say, “See, nice guys do eventually win!” But I could counter by saying that Mr. Nice Guy is still the runner up. He wins by the eventual total disqualification of The Bad Boy, not because he’s seen as the best choice right off the bat.If only ladies had the wisdom of maturity a little earlier!Seeing more nice guys finish first creates more nice guys.Were/are you into bad boys? When did you give up on “bad boys?”By Straight Male Friend Marcus Osborne for GalTime.comlast_img read more

CASC Symposium on Youth and Violence underway at the Public Service Training Centre

first_imgLocalNews CASC Symposium on Youth and Violence underway at the Public Service Training Centre by: – August 8, 2011 38 Views   no discussions Share Tweet Sharing is caring!center_img Share Share Participants at the CASC Youth Symposium.Over seventy-five youths from across the Caribbean Region are today participating in a Youth and Violence Symposium, which has been organized by the Caribbean Award Sub-Regional Council (CASC) and sponsored by the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture.According to the organizers, the symposium was organized in an attempt to combat youth idleness by providing an avenue for young people to contribute to their personal growth through skills, develop meaningful service to their community and healthy lifestyles.Chief Youth Officer in the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture Mr. Jules Pascal, while addressing the symposium, referred to the period of being young as one of the most difficult periods in one’s life.Cheif Youth Officer, Mr. Jules Pascal addressing the symposium this morning.“Youth is a period in an individual’s life that is probably the most difficult. It is considered the most difficult because that is the time that the individual is in transition, it is difficult because that is the period when the young person wants to develop his or her own identity, it is a period where the young person is propelled into moving from childhood to adulthood and that is a difficult transition. I say it is difficult because during that period one has to grapple with a lot of difficulties and a lot of challenges,” he said.Mr. Pascal also described this period as one which is misunderstood as a result of the changes one encounters.“Youth is also one of the most misunderstood periods in an individual’s life. I say misunderstood because during that time many changes are taking place and even the youths themselves have difficulty in understanding that period of transition; it is misunderstood and it is misinterpreted.  Dr. Francis Severin addressing the symposium this morning.Meantime Dr. Francis Severin, Head of the University of the West Indies Open Campus Dominica, also addressed the symposium on the topic ‘Society and How It Is Affected by Youth Violence.’In his deliberation, he quoted the lyrics of reggae superstar Bob Marley’s “Coming in from the Cold”, to highlight to the youths that although their circumstances may be difficult they should not resort to violence.“Would you allow your circumstances to cause you to kill your brother man, or rape, or steal, counterfeit, forge? Would you let the system cause you to do these things? The response should be a resounding NO!”Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

Leicester City take out another bank loan to survive

first_imgLeicester City have taken out a loan with Australian bank Macquarie. The loan is secured against the Premier League payments City will receive up to January 2022. The club are estimated to receive around £147m in prize money and TV payments for this season, and a similar finish in 2020-21 will earn a similar amount, with the Premier League paying out three or four times per year. However, the size of the loan taken out by City is not known. It is the seventh time the club have entered into an arrangement with Macquarie, starting in October 2018, when City took out a loan to receive the payments for Riyad Mahrez upfront, with Manchester City’s payment installments going to Macquarie. A further loan was taken out in December of that year, in order to help with the construction of the new training ground at Seagrave.Advertisement Before this week’s loan, City most recently did a deal with Macquarie in January, when the loan was guaranteed against Premier League payments until March 2021. The most recent financial report shows City took out loans of £54m in the 2018-19 financial year, and a £45m loan with Macquarie after May 2019. read also:Fenerbahce offer €12m to loan Leicester City striker Iheanacho They also entered into a six-year facility loan worth £91m with the club’s owners King Power in order to complete the build of the new training ground. In the unlikely event that City are relegated next season, Macquarie will then collect the parachute payments received by the club from the Premier League.
