House of dimes

first_imgBy Faith PeppersUniversity of Georgia For the past five years, 4-H’ers from across America have been collecting and donating dimes to finance building a Habitat for Humanity house in Atlanta. On Saturday, Nov. 25, at National 4-H Congress, more than 1,200 4-H members will make a final donation during a citizenship ceremony that will bring the total funds raised to $52,000.“When 4-H celebrated its centennial in 2002, each Congress participant brought 100 dimes to donate to a good cause to mark the anniversary,” said Susan Stewart, executive director of National 4-H Congress. “They have continued the tradition each of the past five years to reach their goal of more than $50,000 to fund the house.”Lt. General Russel Honore, commander of the 1st Army at Fort Gillem near Atlanta and an outstanding former Louisiana 4-H’er, will speak to the 4-H’ers during the citizenship assembly. Honore gained national attention when he commanded troops in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina.The 4-H’ers partnered with employees of the Hyatt Regency Atlanta to build the house. Building began in October, and the ribbon will be cut Monday, Nov. 27. Miss America 2006, Jennifer Berry, will be on hand for the ribbon-cutting.Besides the money collected, each state will bring the new homeowner a housewarming gift. Each region of the country was given a designated room to donate gifts for.National 4-H Congress is the annual gathering of selected 4-H members from across the nation in the ninth through the 12th grades to participate in leadership, citizenship and community service.The 4-H program is a nationwide youth development program of land-grant universities in each state and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Cooperative State Research, Education and Extension Service.There are 6.5 million 4-H’ers in the United States. The 4-H program is supported by 538,000 adult volunteers and more than 60 million 4-H alumni.Among the many notable 4-H alumni are Johnny Bench, Rosalynn Carter, John Glenn, Vince Gill, Al Gore, Archie Manning, Reba McEntire, Pat Nixon, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Alan Shepard, John Updike and Herschel Walker.last_img read more

CFO Focus: Two flawed liquidity risk measurements

first_img continue reading » The four most commonly used liquidity measurements are the liquidity ratio, cash flow modeling, the net non-core funding dependency ratio and funding concentrations. Can you guess which among these is “the good,” which is “the bad,” and which is “the ugly?”If you said, the good ones are the liquidity ratio and cash flow modeling, you are correct! For more details on these good measures, please see our full whitepaper. Another good resource for credit unions looking at liquidity is the liquidity section of the National Credit Union Administration’s examiner’s guide.The “bad” measure listed here is funding concentrations. Why I think it is bad may not be immediately apparent. Monitoring funding concentrations is extremely valuable and should be part of any sound funds-management program. All credit unions should monitor their sources of funds, understand the risks of each source and set targets for their funding composition. Furthermore, institutions using non-core funding sources should also set individual and aggregate limits for their use. Where “the bad” comes into play is with the liberties regulators sometimes take with what should be considered as non-core funding sources.For the most part, both credit union managers and examiners agree that non-core funding sources include brokered deposits, internet deposits, correspondent and Federal Home Loan Bank borrowings, and in some cases, large or uninsured deposits. However, examiners have recently expanded the traditional view of non-core liabilities and coined a new term, “potentially volatile funding sources.” ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Indonesia’s virus cases, deaths accelerate after reopening

first_imgThe nation’s provinces have continued to experience a surge of infections and deaths, including Jakarta, where the share of positive test results out of the total tests administered had doubled to 10.5 percent by last week.  As of Saturday, the total cumulative reported cases in Indonesia exceeded those officially reported in China, where the virus was first discovered, for the first time. As of the same day, China had recorded 83,644 cumulative cases, according to the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).Epidemiologist Riris Andono Ahmad from Gadjah Mada University said Indonesia could see a shortened doubling period for COVID-19 cases, possibly causing the country to become one of the worst hit in the world if there was no intervention.He mentioned several other potential hotspots, such as boarding schools, where a number of people from various regions tended to convene with limited social distancing. Confirmed hotspots have now spread outside of Jakarta to East Java, Central Java, South Sulawesi and South Kalimantan. After almost a month of taking gradual steps to reopen the economy, Indonesia has seen its COVID-19 cases and deaths double as crowds reemerge in virus epicenters like Jakarta. Experts have cautioned that the country is at risk of becoming one of the worst hit worldwide.Indonesia had recorded 86,521 total cases and 4,143 deaths as of Sunday, twice the cumulative figure from the previous month.The central government and local administrations gradually lifted requirements under large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) in the first weeks of June. By June 18, the Health Ministry had recorded 41,431 cases and 2,276 deaths nationwide, surpassing Singapore for the first time as the Southeast Asian country with most officially reported cases. “There must be tough enforcement from the government and popular awareness if [people] don’t want to prolong the pandemic. The problem is that there is sometimes resistance, and with the large number of people there, there has to be bargaining in prevention efforts,” he told The Jakarta Post.Indonesia’s daily fatality average among confirmed cases increased to 77 deaths per day in the past week from 62 deaths per day in the previous week, according to data compiled by the Post.The World Health Organization (WHO) warned in a report on July 15 that the deaths of patients under surveillance (PDP) in Indonesia had been substantially higher than the deaths of confirmed COVID-19 patients in most provinces in Java.Nationwide data compiled by volunteer group Kawal COVID-19 shows more than 8,000 deaths among PDPs and people under observation (ODPs), which the government has now renamed probable and suspected cases, respectively.Starting in early June, offices reopened as restrictions were eased. Only Jakarta and its satellite cities and regencies began the transition out of PSBB, which allowed the gradual reopening of several service sectors. Tangerang city and regency, as well as South Tangerang, remained under full PSBB, according to the national COVID-19 task force.Government COVID-19 spokesperson Achmad Yurianto said recently that many of the new confirmed COVID-19 cases in Indonesia were found in office settings with poor air circulation and workers who were not wearing masks.An epidemiologist at the University of Airlangga, Laura Navika Yamani, said with no mobility restrictions between provinces and cities that had different levels of risk, there could be a “widening spread of the virus” to areas that were thought to be virus free.”The exponential growth of cases to even double [within a month] is expected when taking into consideration the virus’ characteristics. One person may infect two to four other people, depending on how much interaction [the person] has [with others],” she said.The virus has now reached 464 of the country’s 514 cities and regencies from 431 on the same date last month. Currently, 269 labs are in operation to conduct COVID-19 tests.Despite a growing network of labs, Indonesia continues to have one of the lowest testing rates in the world, having tested 707,238 people so far. Data compiled by Worldometer shows that Indonesia has tested 439 people per 100,000, while China has tested 6,281 people per 100,000.The WHO report said that only Jakarta had met its minimum surveillance benchmark of 1 test per 1,000 people per week, one of the requisites for loosening restrictions that the government adopted in its latest COVID-19 prevention and handling guidelines.Riris said that without any government intervention, there would be “very big” collateral damage after reopening.”The epidemic is like burning fuel, and the fuel, in this case, is people without immunity. The sooner they’re burnt, the sooner it will end. But as a result, the healthcare system will be overwhelmed, fatalities will be high and the economy might collapse,” he said.Topics :last_img read more

Syracuse moves into 1st place with 8-3 win over Mercyhurst

first_img Published on January 10, 2020 at 11:57 pm Contact Mitchell: mbannon@syr.edu On a two-on-one late in the third period, Mercyhurst forward Abigail Schauer scored the type of goal that has hurt the Orange all season. But not tonight. Not when eight Orange goals preceded it. On Friday night at Tennity Ice Pavilion, Syracuse (6-13-1, 5-1-1 College Hockey America) dominated Mercyhurst (11-8-2, 5-2-0) from the opening puck drop to the final buzzer. The Orange chased two Mercyhurst goaltenders on their way to the first home win of the season, an 8-3 win that launched them to the top of the College Hockey America conference.“Everything’s starting to come together,” Kristen Siermachesky said. “I think it’s just a lot of hard work that’s finally paying off.”Almost seven minutes into the first period, defender Lindsay Eastwood sent a saucer pass across the neutral zone to Brynn Koocher and headed off for a change. Koocher was all by herself heading down the right wing with two Lakers to beat. The freshman forward fainted to the right, and when a Laker defender pinched on her, Koocher cut inside past her. Koocher pulled the puck on to her backhand away from the outstretched stick of the final Mercyhurst defender and tossed a backhander towards the far side of the net to open the scoring.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“They’re doing what they always do,” a Mercyhurst fan said. “They start off slow.”The slow Laker start continued for nearly the rest of the first period, where a perfectly placed wrist shot and slapshot from the point by Savannah Rennie and Eastwood respectively put the Orange up 3-0.Bounces that may have failed to go Syracuse’s way earlier this season found open sticks and, often soon after, the back of the Laker net.Halfway through the second period, the Orange set up in their umbrella formation, looking to add to their 4-1 lead on the power play. As the Orange moved the puck across the blue line, forward Lauren Bellefontaine drifted off the half-wall and lifted her stick in the air, waiting for a one-time pass. Mae Batherson obliged, sending Bellefontaine a pass which she clapped towards the Laker net. The puck, however, was drifting wide before a cutting Emma Polaski’s outstretched stick knocked the puck out of the air and into the twine.“We made our own breaks tonight,” Paul Flanagan said.While SU’s offensive explosion kept the puck in the Mercyhurst end for much of the game, Ady Cohen was backing it up at the other end of the ice. With 4:59 remaining in the second and bodies littered in front of Cohen’s crease, the senior goaltender located an initial Laker shot and made another sprawling glove save to end the threat.Halfway through the third and once again on the powerplay, lifted her stick, teeing up what would have been her second slapshot goal of the game, from the exact same spot. This time, however, Eastwood slapped a pass to the slot where Polaski had positioned herself. The pass deflected off Polaski’s stick but found Bellefontaine a few feet behind her who rifled home the 7-2 goal.“I noticed that they’re coming out on me hard,” Eastwood said. “They were taking away the shot for me so I had to find something new to do.”Bellefontaine’s goal knocked Laker goaltender Jenna Silvonen out of the contest, who had earlier replaced starter Kennedy Blair in net. For the second game in a row, the Orange faced three opposition goalies. Unlike last game, however, Mercyhurst’s carousel was not planned. A month ago, Syracuse spent a weekend in Saint Charles, Missouri filling their opposition’s net. The Orange scored 20 goals during a two-game sweep of a Lindenwood team that was forced to play position players in net because of a series of injuries.Friday night’s shellacking may prove Syracuse’s routs at Lindenwood weren’t flukes. In handling the previous top seed in the CHA, SU heads into the rest of the double-header as the conference’s team to beat. “[First in the CHA] is a huge position for us,” Siermachesky said. “That means a bye in the first game [of the playoffs], which would be awesome. I think for right now we just have all eyes on our next game and try to maintain that position.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

I miss fufu – Otto Pfister admits
