The advice facility for people who are too ill, disabled or frail to attend the Enfield Citizens Advice office will continue to operate for another year thanks to the funding.Doctors of the World UK received £10,000, to help the charity extend the opening hours of its fortnightly family clinic in Bethnal Green, which is aimed at aiding women and children in need by providing easy access to specialists who can provide vital healthcare services.Auditory Verbal UK has also received £6,000, which will enable the charity to increase its provision of services in its Bermondsey centre, while staff from the company are also encouraged to volunteer with the charity.Anita Grover, chief executive of Auditory Verbal UK, said:“Thanks to Aberdeen Asset Management’s donation, more deaf children and their families are able to access Auditory Verbal UK’s early intervention programme at our London centre. That means more children getting the support that they need to learn to listen and talk, and to achieve their full potential.”Other organisations to have received support in the past year include Resurgo’s Spear programme where the foundation’s support enabled two young people to undergo a year’s training, Redhall School where a donation allowed primary seven schoolchildren with special needs to take part in a four-day activity camp, and Gorgie City Farm.The Aberdeen Asset Management Charitable Foundation also selects an emerging market each year, and employees have the opportunity to vote for a project in that country which will receive support for a three-year period. This year the foundation selected the Karen Hilltribes Trust (pictured) as its fifth emerging markets charity partner, and will make a six-figure donation to the charity over a three-year commitment.Each Aberdeen office around the world establishes its own charity committee, whose remit is to manage local giving activities and promote volunteering. Charities can apply for local community funding on its site at any time of the year and must meet the following criteria: Advertisement Tagged with: corporate grants AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis13 Lynda Affleck of Aberdeen’s Charitable Foundation said:“It is incredibly important to us to support the communities in which our staff live and work.

I did this for the community and we gotta be positive in life,” said Calogero Drago, owner of the fine dining establishment Celestino Ristorante at 141 S. Lake Ave. in Pasadena, who said he had never done “to go” orders prior to the stay-at-home mandate.It was either adapt or close.“I didn’t do the three course. I just did a nice, beautiful menu,” Drago told Pasadena Now. “Chicken, fish, pasta, special of the day. You have four different types of pasta, you have two risotto, you have a gluten-free, vegan … everything. So we’ll see. We’ll try this new model, hope it’s going to work.”“We gotta look forward because it’s sad, the situation right now, in one minute the world had changed,” Drago added.In late March, Gale Kohl closed Gale’s Restaurant so employees could be with their families.“During the closure, we cleaned, sanitized and disinfected the entire restaurant. We re-opened the restaurant on April 28,” Kohl told Pasadena Now in an email. “I had to think long and hard as to what was the best thing to do. My employees were all feeling good and wanted to return to work. I looked at everything and knew that unless we re-opened in a timely manner, we would probably not be in a financial position to open our doors again. The costs of just shutting the doors is enormous. Most restaurants could not sustain for very long. At this point, I plan to keep going, support my staff and the community. I have been doing that for almost 19 years and I have no plans of closing my doors.”Pasadena’s Economic Development and Technology Committee last week directed the City Manager’s office to report back with specific recommendations as to how restaurants and other businesses can reopen to dine-in customers in the coming weeks while maintaining social distancing and other safety and health protocols.It’s unclear when City Manager Steve Mermell will submit his report to the EDTECH committee but he told members he would try to get them something during as soon as this shortened holiday week.One of the many options the city is considering is allowing restaurants to set up outdoor dining in parking lots, alleyways, on sidewalks and parklets, the area reserved for street parking that extends 8-feet from the curb.“We’ll probably have some nice open air tents that we will hang with chandeliers and make it very inviting,” said Gregg Smith, co-owner of Arroyo Chop House at 536 S. Arroyo Pkwy.“We don’t have the guidelines from the city yet so we don’t really know what the rest of it will look like,” said Smith, who with his brother, Bob, owns three restaurants in Pasadena. “I wouldn’t be surprised if we need to put some plexiglass partitions.”“I bet you’re going to see 35 to 40 percent of the retailers in Pasadena will not reopen.” Smith added. “And the longer this continues, the more casualties in retail we’re gonna see. And I mean all retail, not just restaurants … the survivors are going to be the ones that make the guests feel secure and healthy and safe.”“Business owners are tossing out any idea possible that will give them some opportunity to have a decent chance at bringing their businesses back online and surviving,” said Councilman Andy Wilson, an EDTECH committee member. “If restaurants are only allowed to operate at a small percentage of its capacity, can they even afford to reopen?”“If the public is not confident that they’re going to be safe then the businesses don’t work because they have no customers,” Wilson added. “We need to make sure as we’re opening these, helping these businesses come back online, that we’re doing it in a way that customers can be confident of taking advantage of those businesses and those restaurants and those services, otherwise they’re not going to show up.”In addition to the cost of implementing new safety and health measures, businesses are facing a minimum wage increase in the city of Pasadena to $15 an hour July 1.“I would suggest that the city council consider a 12 month pause on raising the minimum wage to allow the businesses to rebuild themselves and to reassure their customers that they are safe, clean, and happy to welcome them back,” former restaurant owner Robin Salzer told Pasadena Now. “Employees are suffering, businesses are suffering, and we as a city are suffering.”“Everyone’s already struggling and everyone’s already laid off most of their employees,” said Marc Canter, owner of LA’s famous Canter’s Deli, which operates a satellite in Pasadena out of Kitchen United at 55 S. Madison Ave. “So it would just make matters worse right now. I can’t imagine the city would enforce that during this pandemic.” STAFF REPORT First Heatwave Expected Next Week Your email address will not be published.

If the state can’t show they’re treating churches the same or better than retail, I’m inclined to issue the preliminary injunction.”Bashant scheduled the preliminary injunction and evidentiary hearing in that case for May 13.This is the third time Harvest Rock has filed for an emergency injunction in the Ninth Circuit.On Dec. 22, U.S. District Judge Jesus Bernal denied a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction against Newsom’s stay-at-home orders.The church immediately appealed Bernal’s ruling to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. When asked to explain exactly how California’s public health order unfairly targets the church, the Harvest Rock attorneys compared church gatherings to grocery stores and malls.However, Bernal, according to an article appearing inCourthouse News, said that movie theaters and concert halls were a more apt comparison.Seth Goldstein, a California deputy attorney general, told Bernal at the time the state’s indoor gathering restrictions are neutral, backed by undisputed scientific evidence.In October, Bernal ruled that the church’s right to free speech was not being violated and that Newsom’s order instead opposed where the speech was occurring.“Nothing would prevent the Governor from reinstating the challenged restrictions tomorrow, which would be just another sacrifice of fundamental rights in the name of judicial modesty,” the brief states.

This coming weekend sees the fourth round of the FA Cup, and the same old names will be battling it out for this year’s trophy. On Saturday six-times winners Newcastle United travel to ten-times winners Arsenal, while Tottenham, who have won the cup eight times, face Manchester United (the most successful team in FA Cup history, with eleven wins) on Sunday. It seems impossible to look outside the ‘Big Four’ of Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea when considering who might triumph in this year’s final at Wembley in May. Indeed, many in the game have questioned whether the world’s oldest cup competition has lost its ability to shock. However, things were never thus, and a quick glance at the records shows that the early years of the trophy were dominated by clubs which would be unknown to the modern fan. The first two finals, held at the Kennington Oval in 1872 and 1873 were won by Battersea-based amateur outfit The Wanderers, while subsequent editions were dominated by clubs such as the now defunct Clapham Rovers, who triumphed in 1880. Early editions of the trophy were limited to amateur teams only, and were initially dominated by public-school teams such as the Old Etonians and the Old Carthusians. This was to be expected, as it was in the English public schools that the rules and conventions of modern football had recently been developed. Another nineteenth century institution which was dominated by these public schools was, of course, Oxford University. This created a situation that would appear perverse to any modern observer of football, namely that many of the country’s most talented footballers could be found within the ancient walls of this university.This, incredibly, made Oxford University one of the most feared footballing outfits in the country. The team was packed with internationals, and indeed no less than twenty-nine alumni of this university have gone on to receive full England caps. The team first entered the FA Cup in 1872-3, and defeated Crystal Palace 3-2 in their very first game. They went on to reach the final that year, before losing 2-0 to The Wanderers. The following year they went one better, seeing off the Royal Engineers 2-0 with goals from Charles Mackarness and Frederick Patton. Interestingly, this is the only cup final to date when two brothers have lined up on opposing teams, as Oxford’s William Rawson faced his brother Herbert. Perhaps this record is something for Phil and Gary Neville of Everton and Manchester United respectively to aim for. In the next few years, the University continued its remarkable cup success, reaching three more finals but unfortunately failing to lift the famous trophy again.As the advent of professionalism dawned, Oxford naturally declined as a footballing force. Blackburn Olympic’s 1883 victory over the Old Etonians is often seen as a turning point as football ceased to be the domain of the universities and public schools. The University last entered the cup in 1879/80 but the statistics speak for themselves. Oxford have won the FA Cup, unlike established Premiership clubs such as Middlesbrough, Wigan Athletic and Reading. Furthermore, they were losing finalists in no less than four more finals, the same number as the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Wolves. Perhaps most impressive is Oxford University’s all-time FA Cup record which reads 30 wins from 45 matches. This is an extraordinary win rate of sixty-six percent and a rate better than virtually every modern team in the land. Who cares if these records were set in an age when crossbars were yet to be invented and when games were played wearing caps and trousers! When watching this year’s competition develop therefore, it might be interesting to look back to a day when Oxford University could boast an all- conquering team of the sort Sir Alex Ferguson or Arsene Wenger could only dream. by Matt Miskimmin References from- ouafc.com, thefa.com, fa-cupfinals.co.uk
By Dialogo May 15, 2009 RIO DE JANEIRO, May 14, 2009 (AFP) – Press releases have reported that the last Brazilian Field Marshal died Wednesday at the age of 108 in a hospital in Rio de Janeiro due to health complications. Waldemar Levy Cardoso was the last living marshal – the highest Army rank – in the country after the position was abolished in 1967, only to be assigned to generals in case of war, and will be buried with highest military honors after his wake in Palacio de Caxias in Rio. Cardoso, who was admitted to the Central Hospital of the Army, was appointed to office in 1966 and participated in different Brazilian historical events, including the 1930 revolution that led to the presidency of Getulio Vargas, who served two terms (1930-1945 and 1951-1954). During the last military government (1964-1985), Cardoso was President of the National Oil Council, and during seven months of 1969 led the powerful state oil company known as Petrobras.
NAFCU has been hearing from members that examiners are conducting website reviews as part of recent examinations. A credit union’s website can contain advertising content as well as impact other areas of compliance. Here are some things to consider if conducting a review is on your radar.Advertising ContentKeep in mind that federal regulations define advertisement quite broadly. For example, under Regulation Z, an ad is “a commercial message in any medium that promotes, directly or indirectly, a credit transaction.” NCUA’s Truth in Savings rule is similarly broad, as is NCUA’s general advertising rule. As a result, much of a credit union’s website could include content that federal regulation considers to be an advertisement. Below are several regulatory provisions that may impact a credit union’s website due to its advertising content:Use of the Official NCUA Sign and Advertising Statement – Section 740.4(a) requires credit unions to display the official sign “on its Internet page, if any, where it accepts deposits or opens accounts.” Section 707.5 requires a credit union’s website to state “federally insured by NCUA,” but this can be accomplished using the official sign. However, if a particular credit union page has information about investment-type products that are not insured, such as those offered through a CUSO, it could be problematic to include this information if it insinuates that uninsured products are insured. continue reading » 6SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
When first asked if technology training differs much from the other types of training credit unions tend to do, Dixie Abramian, CME, CSE, responds, “not necessarily. There is always a learning curve when it comes to anything new that is introduced.”That said, there’s little question that taking your employees through something so massive as a core conversion is a more complex affair than most other tech training endeavors. “It can take a while longer to get everybody up to speed on and comfortable with a new system,” says the CUES member, president/CEO of $1.3 billion, 45,000-member Firefighters First Credit Union, Los Angeles. “It can take them longer to get bought-in to it, too.”Shareta Caldwell agrees—and suggests the increased intensity associated with training related to a core conversion shouldn’t be too surprising. “It’s different from any other conversion you do,” says Caldwell, VP/HR for $75 million, 5,600-member VA Desert Pacific Federal Credit Union (vadpfcu.org), Signal Hill, California. “This is everything. This is how your credit union runs.”With almost any other technology purchase or investment, “you can get away from it easily,” she adds. “The contracts usually are short. And at the end of those contracts, you can walk away without [losing] much money if you’re not happy.” continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
I was clueless the first time I spoke to an executive recruiter.In my mid-20s, I was fortunate to have a job that connected me well to industry leaders. When a recruiter called to ask if I knew anyone who would be a great fit as the President/CEO of a trade association based in my home state, I assumed he was calling for a referral. I rattled off a few names before he stopped me: Listen. You’ve never worked with a recruiter before, have you? I’m calling to ask if you would consider applying.I laughed out loud. My demographics did not match what I thought he was looking for.While he acknowledged that I might not seem like a perfect match, he liked what he had heard and encouraged me to apply. He shepherded me through the experience, offering guidance about the process, the expectations, the members of the Board, and the qualities they were seeking. His commitment to his client was to uncover the best talent available, and he knew the only way to do that was to get to know—and help tell—the story of every candidate. At the conclusion of that search, even though I was not chosen for that job, I was confident that I had presented well as a candidate.The next time I applied for a position with an executive recruiter, I did not get a call back.I didn’t the next time either.In fact, when I was ultimately hired as a first-time CEO, I had initially been excluded from the candidate pool. It was only after I mentioned my interest to someone on the search committee that I was considered, and only then because she demanded it. This was a frustrating experience for my eventual employer who had not been happy with the candidates initially presented. When they had asked about the lack of diversity, they were told they had been presented all qualified candidates the recruiter had reviewed. In this case, it was not that I was unqualified; it was that the recruiter had not looked at my application.What was the difference in these starkly contrasting experiences? Had some mysterious algorithm locked me out of some searches, but let me into others?The executive search experience can be frustrating for both candidates and hiring managers. Traditional search methods often lead to homogenous candidate pools that leave organizations wondering where the rest of the talent is and candidates uncertain if their applications were ever received.While emerging technology has opened channels that allow for much wider reach, it has also depersonalized many elements of the job search. Some recruitment processes have struggled to strike the balance needed to maintain the human connection with the increasing number of candidates that technology brings. Overwhelmed with resumes, recruiters may slip into the habit of seeking the familiar: Candidates they know, who they have previously placed, or who have been referred directly. Exclusion from searches does not always stem from a systematically biased algorithm, but the persistent human bias of “in-group promotion.” Consideration comes down to who you know and who knows you, not progressing much beyond directly inviting people we know to apply for open positions. This method might seem safe, but often results in teams of individuals with similar backgrounds and ways of thinking, limiting the team’s capacity for innovation and deep understanding of diverse member groups.If your organization is committed to attracting diverse talent and perspectives that will drive your organization forward, consider these four items before you kick off your recruitment process:Set an intention for direct recruiting:It is still true that most people find jobs because of who they know. It is also true that humans tend to know people like themselves. Therefore, when your recruiter invites contacts to apply for a position, there is a likelihood that these candidates may be very similar to one another. Ensure your approach to direct recruitment goes beyond one individual’s network and is intentionally inclusive of broad demographics and backgrounds.Consider where to post your position:Using typical social media channels and inside-the-industry advertising sources will lead to a full talent pool with a high number of applicants. This pool may not reflect the community you serve and may not bring in talent outside a more traditional bubble, though. If your organization is committed to vetting a talent pool that is likely to understand your community and your members, your recruiter should expand his or her search efforts beyond industry channels to reach into your specific community, too.Be consistent with internal candidates: Organizations do not always know the full story of the latent talent already on staff, missing opportunities to promote well-qualified individuals. Long-time employees may end up with fewer opportunities for growth when assumptions are made about their skills, strengths, and ambitions. This is why many talented executives wonder if the only way to move up is to move out of an organization. Strategically recruit within your organization for promotions and new positions, at least as much as you would externally. The talent you already have on staff may surprise and delight you—and it comes with institutional knowledge!Refine your requirements: One of the most common ways organizations inadvertently perpetuate homogeny in leadership is by assuming that the experience, traits, and background held by a successful incumbent should be replicated. When defining the ideal candidate profile, scrutinize why something is included as a necessary qualification. Must your CEO be a CPA when accounting and finance functions are delegated? Is there a correlation between holding a Master’s Degree and being a successful VP-Lending? Be careful, too, about the years of experience you require. If, for example, you want to hire a Chief Digital Officer with 10-15 years of experience in mobile banking, you will have a limited pool: The iPhone was not invented until 2007 and mobile banking was not ubiquitous until after that pivotal event. Engage in strategic conversations about what it really takes for a candidate to be successful in carrying out the objectives of a specific role, then remove any non-essential requirements from the job posting.As unemployment remains historically low, the freelance economy attracts talented professionals seeking flexible options, and human capital remains the most important way credit unions can differentiate, the stakes have never been higher in the war for talent. Be sure your executive search processes are designed to attract and include the best of who is available.In October 2019, O’Rourke and Associates became a division of Humanidei. This progressive change was made to reinvent the gold standard of executive recruiting in the credit union space, recognizing that organizations won’t be successful in attracting today’s talent with yesterday’s techniques. 9SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Jill Nowacki Jill Nowacki started her career with credit unions in 2001.

China reported more than 50 imported cases of the coronavirus on Friday, hours after announcing a ban on foreigners entering the country.In recent weeks China’s tally of infections has dwindled dramatically, with only a handful of domestic patients each day. But just as the country appears to bring the outbreak under control, nations around the globe have been battling to control soaring numbers of infections in new hotspots.There were another 55 new infections in China Friday, the National Health Commission said, with one local infection and 54 imported cases from overseas. Topics : Beijing has been racing to control the number of infections being brought into the country — mostly Chinese nationals returning home from overseas, including large numbers of students abroad.On Thursday Beijing announced dramatic measures to curb arrivals into the country, including reducing the number of international flights, limiting the capacity on board to 75 percent, and imposing a ban on foreigners entering China.Non-nationals living in China with valid visas and resident permits will be blocked from returning to the country after midnight on Friday night, the foreign ministry said in a statement. The ministry said it was a “temporary measure that China is compelled to take in light of the outbreak situation.” Diplomats and the crew of international airlines and vessels will still be permitted to enter.Flights in and out of China will also be capped at just one route a week to each country, including for international airlines.The tally of cases brought into China from abroad climbed to 595 on Friday, health officials said.A series of strict measures had already been put in place to try and stem the wave of infections coming in.All Beijing-bound international flights have been diverted to other urban centers, where passengers will first be screened for the virus.Many Chinese cities including Beijing and Shanghai have also imposed a compulsory 14-day quarantine for all arrivals from abroad. There were nearly 1,100 return international passenger flights scheduled to come to China this week.There were another five deaths on Friday, according to the National Health Commission — all in the province of Hubei where the virus first emerged late last year.In total 81,340 people have been infected in China, and the outbreak has claimed 3,292 lives.
