World Bank Gives $15 Million to Fight Haiti Cholera

first_imgBy Dialogo January 20, 2011 The World Bank announced on 18 January a $15 million grant to Haiti to fight a persistent cholera epidemic, which has claimed the lives of more than 3,700 people since October. The funds, said the organization in statement, will go towards public campaigns to prevent infection and increase the capacity of Haiti’s health ministry to deal with the emergency. The World Bank approved an extra $5 million grant to go with $10 million first pledged in October to make a total donation of $15 million to combat the health crisis, the statement said. After the January 2010 earthquake, the World Bank Group committed 479 million dollars to the first 24 months of reconstruction, the body said, adding that a year later two thirds of the pledge has been delivered. Haiti’s cholera death toll has risen to 3,838, according to government figures, in what is a persistent but apparently declining daily death toll. The figure marks the total since the outbreak was first discovered in mid-October up to January 11. Total infections rose to 188,967 in Haiti, including 105,827 people who have been treated in hospital.last_img read more

5 New Year’s resolutions for credit union marketers

first_imgThe new year is here and it’s clear that it’s a time of transformational change. New technologies, a new generation, and new competitors are joining to dramatically reshape how financial institutions reach out to both potential and current members.So, what should you do to help your institution keep up?To get you started here are 5 resolutions you can make to help your credit union thrive in 2018:Think mobile. Mobile traffic to top retail banking websites is up 121% since 2014, according to, citing research by Adobe Digital Insights and 87% of financial executives say mobile will be an equal or better source of new account origination in the next three years.Promise yourself to double down on growing your mobile channel, both in terms of users and uses. Also, explore how to implement new account origination via mobile. This will pay off in the years ahead, especially when recruiting millennial members. Study the best. It’s easy to preach about going mobile, but personal experience is essential. Each month, dig deep into one mobile app (PayPal, Venmo, Uber, Amazon, or whatever leading, consumer-facing app you want to get to know well). Especially explore leading credit union and bank apps.The point of this research is to hunt for ideas and tools you can adapt for your own credit union. With Amazon, for instance, the use of artificial intelligence to generate shopping choices is dazzlingly good—how can your credit union do something similar? Ask these kinds of questions about each leading app you explore. Go local. Credit union marketers will tell you that real success focuses on the value of a credit union’s local roots. In an age when money center banks are getting ever bigger, an emphasis on the credit union as a local business is a winning strategy. In fact, Snap Retail, citing Edelman Digital, says 40% of millennials prefer shopping locally.Come up with marketing messages that highlight your credit union’s local roots. Run online ads (geo-targeted to local consumers) that feature local places and people. At every turn, remind members and prospects that your credit union is run by and for locals. Embrace analytics. Make 2018 your year of data analytics. You might be thinking this is too expensive or too difficult and time-consuming for your credit union. A half-decade ago it was, absolutely. However, now CUSOs and consulting firms are developing data analytics tools that are specifically designed to usher credit unions into this revolution, making the process easier and more affordable. It’s important. A credit union that has mastery of its data analytics—really knowing their members’ wants and needs—is that much closer to success. Data analytics takes the guesswork out of decision-making. That’s why just about all the top credit unions admit (at least off the record) that they are investing substantial resources into their data analytics efforts. Let go. Where to find the time to do your new resolutions? Easy. Stop doing other things. “Like what,” you ask?A lot of credit unions do the same-old marketing, year in and year out. These include using the same statement stuffers, direct mail pieces (sent via US Mail), print ads, and sponsorships. Make a resolution to track how each of your campaigns performs, and be ruthless about eliminating the duds.Say that to many senior credit union marketers, and they agree it’s a good strategy. Yet they encounter a significant obstacle when the board or the CEO expects to see those kinds of more typical campaigns. In that case, speak up. Explain that the performance just doesn’t warrant the cost in this ever-evolving financial services industry. The numbers will do your persuading. Getting the idea? Transforming a credit union for 2018 doesn’t have to be difficult. It starts with a few resolutions. Stick with them, and you will see results.Wishing you all a happy, healthy, and successful new year! 53SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Robert McGarvey A blogger and speaker, Robert McGarvey is a longtime journalist who has covered credit unions extensively, notably for Credit Union Times as well as the New York Times and TheStreet, … Web: Detailslast_img read more

Ex-Nassau Police Commander’s Sentence Stayed Pending New Appeal

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York A judge granted an ex-Nassau County police commander’s request to postpone serving his jail sentence for a misconduct conviction while New York State’s highest court decides if it will hear his appeal.Leslie Stein, an associate judge at the state Court of Appeals in Albany, granted Monday the stay of execution of a 60-day jail term that William Flanagan, a former deputy Nassau police commissioner, was sentenced to after he was convicted of misconduct and conspiracy two years ago.“Stay is granted only pending this court’s determination” of whether it will hear Flanagan’s attorneys argue why they think the court should overturn his conviction, the judge wrote in her order. The conviction was upheld two weeks ago by the state Supreme Court Appellate Division, Second Judicial Department.Prosecutors have said that Flanagan helped quash the case against Zachary Parker, of Merrick, who stole thousands of dollars worth of electronics from his alma mater, John F. Kennedy High School in Bellmore, shortly before he graduated in 2009 while he interned with the Nassau police Ambulance Bureau. The burglar’s father, Gary, was volunteering for the nonprofit Nassau County Police Department Foundation when he asked Flanagan for help with the case.Acting Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas had opposed the request to stay Flanagan’s sentence. The appellate division in Brooklyn first stayed the execution of his sentence pending the first round of appeals.Flangan’s attorney, Donna Aldea, head of the Appellate Practice Group for Garden City-based Barket Marion Epstein & Kearon, LLP, said that she is confident that the Court of Appeals will overturn the conviction. Her argument is that he didn’t receive a fair trial due to prosecutorial misconduct, prejudicial statements and insufficient evidence.Singas’ office stands by the conviction. A panel of four judges in the appellate division wrote in their decision upholding the conviction that any errors prosecutors made were mitigated by “overwhelming evidence of the defendant’s guilt.”Two other ex-police commanders—John Hunter, the retired Deputy Chief of Patrol, and Det. Sgt. Alan Sharpe—both pleaded guilty to misconduct and were sentenced to probation in connection with the case, which stemmed from a Press expose into police favoritism for the nonprofit’s donors. Zachary Parker pleaded guilty to burglary and was sentenced to prison after violating his probation. He has since been released.last_img read more

Predicting a ‘relatively comfortable’ 2-1 victory for the Red Devils at Old Trafford, Owen said: ‘Manchester United’s point at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium on Friday means that they are now unbeaten in their last 12 games in all competitions (won eight) and have pretty much picked up where they left off prior to the lockdown.‘Sheffield United on the other hand, will be playing their third game in a week and they certainly haven’t been able to get back to pre-lock-down form. ‘Their 3-0 defeat at the hands of Newcastle United was their biggest loss since losing by a similar score to Middlesbrough back in August 2018.‘Back to back matches without scoring a goal will undoubtedly have knocked the Blades’ confidence and with a relatively small squad to choose from as well as the absence of on-loan keeper Dean Henderson due to the conditions of his loan move, I fancy Manchester United to continue their impressive form with a relatively comfortable 2-1 home victory.’What will the result be at Old Trafford?Manchester United win0%Draw0%Sheffield United win0%Share your resultsShare your resultsTweet your results Comment Advertisement Michael Owen makes Premier League predictions for Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea vs Manchester City Michael Owen has delivered his predictions for the Premier League’s upcoming games (Picture: Getty)Michael Owen predicts both Manchester United and Arsenal will secure their first wins since the season’s restart over the coming days and has backed Chelsea to hold Manchester City to a draw at Stamford Bridge in his tips for Matchday 31.Premier League teams have had more than three months without top-flight action to prepare for the run-in and managers will by now hope their players are up to speed from both a mental and physical perspective.Liverpool’s stalemate with Everton in Sunday’s Merseyside derby at Goodison Park gave second-placed City the opportunity to close the gap to *just* 20 points at the top of the table.

EPL: Newcastle in takeover talks with Saudi Crown Prince after Man Utd bids

first_imgMike Ashley is in talks to sell Newcastle to the Saudi Arabia sovereign-wealth fund, it has been claimed. The influential Wall Street Journal are reporting the Saudi’s are considering buying the Tyneside club for £340m. It is the latest stage of Saudi Arabia focusing on sports and entertainment as part of economic reforms to improve the countries standing. Amanda Staveley watches on from the stands The WSJ are reporting that the prospective buyer is the Public Investment Fund, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s key investment vehicle. Newcastle fans will be sceptical after several years of aborted or false claims being made from parties said to want to buy the club.There have been many businessmen trying to scrape together the cash to meet Ashley’s demands, but he has pledged only to sell if to someone with the clout to invest and revamp the club.The financier Amanda Staveley is mentioned by the WSJ as organising investors to join the buy-out. She has lurked for a couple of years, including claiming bids had been made, but never been able to strike a deal. A Saudi buy out would be controversial and reopen the debate about the nation’s “sportswashing” using events like golf and boxing to improve the country’s image.

Pilkington blow for Canaries

first_img Press Association The Republic of Ireland international will not be back in contention until the new year after sustaining a grade two tear. News on Robert Snodgrass’ knee problem is slightly better, with Hughton saying he will be out for a few weeks but not as long as Pilkington. Norwich manager Chris Hughton expects Anthony Pilkington’s hamstring injury to sideline the midfielder for up to six weeks.center_img “Anthony has had a scan which shows a grade two strain which usually means five or six weeks out,” reported Hughton telling the club’s annual general meeting. “Robert came back from international duty with Scotland and felt his knee at the beginning of training on Friday. “He travelled with us to Newcastle as we hoped it would settle down, but unfortunately it didn’t, and he could be out for a few weeks but not as long as Anthony.” Striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel (toe) is expected to be fit for the home match against Swansea in mid-December but the comebacks of Mark Bunn (ankle), Alex Tettey (ankle) and Elliott Bennett (cruciate ligament) will all be longer. Injuries have not helped the Canaries’ run of form which has seen them win just once in their last six matches, dropping them to 16th in the Barclays Premier League. “You go through good periods where you’ve got no injuries, you keep doing things the same, and then you can pick up some,” added Hughton, in comments reported by the Norwich Evening News. “It’s just unfortunate we’re going through one of those periods at the moment, but we have to be able to cope with that, and it’ll give others an opportunity. “I’m not going to sit here and say I’m completely happy with our performances. “Are we where I’d hope we would be at the moment? No, we’re not. It’s my responsibility to make sure we do something about that, starting with Crystal Palace on Saturday.” last_img read more
