Be Better: COVID-19 payment trends that allow credit unions to outshine big banks right now

By on December 17, 2020

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr As Americans hunker down in their homes, changing everything about where and how they spend money, credit unions are entering uncharted territory.  However, one thing is certain: credit unions must continue to be compassionate banking alternative: delivering the financial support that consumers and small businesses need now and in the face of an uncertain future.Big banks are going to do what they always do: put profit before people. Just this morning, for instance, thousands of small business owners voiced their anger on social media after being denied from Bank of America’s Paycheck Protection Loan Program. The bank stated it would only offer relief to customers that have an existing credit card or lending relationship with the bank.While Bank of America reversed its decision only after massive criticism, the initial policy demonstrates the clear connection they draw between the payments and lending side of their business and that, for them, these decisions are purely transactional. Credit unions can stand as the compassionate financial alternative, leveraging payments to support members’ immediate financial needs while building long-term relationships with them. continue reading »last_img read more

Endicott mayor recommends village board cancel new recycling operation restrictions

By on December 8, 2020

first_imgENDICOTT (WBNG) — The back and forth over industrial zoning in Endicott continues. She said, “We learned that the only decision we as a Village could make was regarding adding safety restrictions to our existing zoning code.” After months of conversations over Zoom, met with some oppostion, Endicott Mayor Linda Jackson said she is recommending the village board repeal the restrictions recently passed on the recycling operations in the village. In a press release sent to 12 News, Jackson says Endicott is a village with a reputation built on technology and is what its economy depends on. Jackson explained the village was initially skeptical of the DEC following through on its responsibilities based on past experiences. It comes as the battery recycling facility set to be operated by SungEel MCC Americas was put on hold by the DEC, which wants to look further into its recycling process and certain chemicals involved before it gets up and running. “Recently they have proved to be responsive to the watchdog role they play over this company,” said Jackson. “We will let the DEC and the company work out the next phase of the permit review process.”last_img read more

Cricket News Sri Lanka end New Zealand tour without a win, lose one-off Twenty20 International

By on September 19, 2020

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Sri Lanka has ended their tour of New Zealand without a win as they lost the one-off Twenty20 International in Eden Park, Auckland by 35 runs on Friday. This follows the results on the tour when they lost the two-Test series 1-0 and were blanked 3-0 in the ODI series. This loss will hurt the Sri Lankan team badly as they allowed New Zealand to recover from 55/5 after winning the toss and opting to field. Sri Lanka skipper Lasith Malinga struck in the very first over by removing Martin Guptill (1). Kasun Rajitha was next when he dismissed Tim Seifert (2). Malinga struck again when he removed the dangerous Henry Nicholls (4) and New Zealand sunk further when Rajitha dismissed Munro for 16.Things continued to go downhill for New Zealand as Ross Taylor and Mitchell Santner struggled to get going after the powerplay overs. When Santner (13) was dismissed by chinaman Lakshan Sandakan, New Zealand were 55/5 in 10 overs and in danger of being bowled out for a below-par score. However, as he had done in the ODI series, Taylor once again stepped up and played an innings of substance. This time, he was the sheet anchor as Doug Bracewell, promoted up the order, played a stirring cameo.Read More | Pandya dropped for Sydney ODI, reportedly set to return homeThe hosts capitalised on some loose bowling from Lahiru Kumara as 17 runs came off the 12th over, with Bracewell hitting his first six. Although Taylor departed in the 16th over for a solid 33, Scott Kuggeleijn stepped up and delivered the finishing touches. Bracewell targeted Thisara Perera by blasting three sixes and a four as 23 runs came in the 17th over and Kuggeleijn got into the game by hammering two more sixes off Rajitha. Kuggeleijn ended the innings in style as he hit two further sixes off Rajitha and New Zealand ended on 179/7, with 64 runs coming in the last four overs.Read More | Rahul Dravid, ‘The Wall’ turns 46- Here are some memorable knocksSri Lanka stumbleIn response, Niroshan Dickwella hit a four and six off Lockie Ferguson but the bowler had his revenge when he got rid of Sadeera Samarawickrama in the first over. Tim Southee conceded 18 runs in his first over as Sri Lanka made a fast start but Kuggeleijn and Bracewell showed his mettle this time with the ball.In his first over, Kuggeleijn dismissed Kusal Perera for 23 while Bracewell struck first ball by sending back Dickwella for 18. However, Thisara, who was in fine form in the ODIs, continued to punish the New Zealand bowling as Sri Lanka maintained a scoring rate over 10 per over. Perera got going with an upper-cut off Bracewell and he lofted Santner into the stands at deep midwicket. Kusal Mendis’ dismissal for 17 did not slow down Perera who got a four and a six off Ish Sodhi. However, Ferguson dealt the killer blow for Sri Lanka when he cleaned up Thisara for 43. Following his dismissal, Sri Lanka lost five wickets for 26 runs as New Zealand sealed the contest in style.Sri Lanka now head to Australia for two Tests in Brisbane and Canberra while New Zealand gear up to face Virat Kohli’s Indian cricket team for five ODIs and three Twenty20 Internationals. last_img read more
