Most people’s false stereotypes of the Millennials include they are over-praised whiners, kids who jump from fad to fad, and a group that is more concerned about technology connection than personal interaction.However, according to a recent e-book from Credit Union Student Choice, financial institutions can successfully connect and build relationships with Gen. Y. Offering more than just theory and a bunch of statistics most people already know, Millennials: How Credit Unions Can Build, Strengthen and Maintain Lasting Relationships provides practical tips and suggestions for reaching this key demographic. And at 38 pages in e-book format you can quickly review the pertinent points.In all honesty, it is one of the best resources I’ve read in many years on a topic (reaching the Millennial Generation) near and dear to almost every financial institution. It has many answers to questions credit unions and banks are asking when it comes to reaching Gen. Y. Like, “who are these people,” “how do they really like to be treated,” and “what changes should financial institutions make to connect with them?” continue reading »
SHARE Email Facebook Twitter February 26, 2018 Governor Wolf Statement in Support of All Pennsylvania Workers as Supreme Court Hears JANUS Case Jobs That Pay, National Issues, Press Release, Statement Harrisburg, PA – As the Supreme Court of the United States hears opening arguments on Janus v. AFSCME, Governor Wolf offered the following statement in support of Pennsylvania workers and the collective bargaining that has helped workers inside and outside of unions:“As this case attempts to take us backwards, we must charge in the opposite direction and make the economy work for all Pennsylvanians. If the Janus case is decided against workers, they could lose the right to have their voices heard in their workplace. As a former business owner, I know that it is great workers that make companies successful and when workers are well-treated, their success is even greater.“Unfortunately, for special interests that are driven by profits, Janus v. AFSCME is part of decades-long effort to destroy unions. Special interest groups have formed throughout the country with the goal of weakening unions, and making it easier for their donors to make money at the expense of working families.“Here in Pennsylvania we are going to fight for working families. A living wage and strong unions for workers will allow our economy to grow and strengthen Pennsylvania’s middle class. As the Supreme Court hears this case, we will do everything in our power to make sure Pennsylvanians can join together to fight for the good, union jobs our communities need.”Read Governor Wolf’s joint op-ed with Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney and Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto here.

Share Share Share Sharing is caring! 106 Views no discussions Tweet NEW YORK, United States (CMC) – A new report by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the World Bank shows that millions of people in the Caribbean and the Americas do not have access to essential health services.The report says six per cent of 400 million people, who do not have access to these services, are “tipped into or pushed further into extreme poverty because of health spending.”“This report is a wakeup call: It shows that we’re a long way from achieving universal health coverage. We must expand access to health and protect the poorest from health expenses that are causing them severe financial hardship,” said Dr Tim Evans, Senior Director of Health, Nutrition and Population at the World Bank Group.The report, “Tracking Universal Health Coverage,” is the first of its kind to measure health service coverage and financial protection to assess countries’ progress towards universal health coverage, according to the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO).The report looks at global access to essential health services – including family planning, antenatal care, skilled birth attendance, child immunization, antiretroviral therapy, tuberculosis treatment, and access to clean water and sanitation – in 2013, and found that at least 400 million people lacked access to at least one of these services.“The world’s most disadvantaged people are missing out on even the most basic services,” said Dr Marie-Paule Kieny, Assistant Director-General, Health Systems and Innovation, at the WHO.“A commitment to equity is at the heart of universal health coverage,” she added. “Health policies and programmes should focus on providing quality health services for the poorest people, women and children, people living in rural areas and those from minority groups.”The report also finds that, across 37 countries, six per cent of the population was tipped or pushed further into extreme poverty (US$1.25/day) because they had to pay for health services out of their own pockets.When the study factors in a poverty measure of US$2/day, 17 per cent of people in these countries were impoverished, or further impoverished, by health expenses, according to PAHO.WHO and the World Bank Group recommend that countries pursuing universal health coverage should aim to achieve a minimum of 80 per cent population coverage of essential health services, and that everyone everywhere should be protected from catastrophic and impoverishing health payments.This is the first in a series of annual reports that WHO and the World Bank Group will produce on tracking progress towards Universal Health Coverage (UHC) across countries.The New York-based Rockefeller Foundation and the Japanese Ministry of Health supported the report, which was released six months before the second annual Universal Health Coverage Day on December 12.

“I know it’s not 100 per cent appropriate as a Liverpool manager but I admire him,” he said. “I remember he was the first British manager I met. “We had breakfast. I’m not sure how much he remembers but I remember because for me this moment was like meeting the Pope. It was absolutely great and from that first season we clicked.“I didn’t think at this moment I would have a trophy in my hands named after him.” Last year’s winner Chris Wilder had to settle for the runner-up spot this time around after narrowly missing out on Europe in a remarkable return to the Premier League for Sheffield United. Also short-listed were Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth and Leeds’ Marcelo Bielsa, who was named Championship manager of the year after earning the title. Coventry boss Mark Robins took the League One award and Crewe’s David Artell was named League Two manager of the year. Emma Hayes was named Barclays FA Women’s Super League manager of the year after leading Chelsea to a league and Continental Tyres League Cup double, while Aston Villa’s Gemma Davies took the FA Women’s Championship award after a curtailed campaign. The Premier League manager of the year will be awarded separately next month.

The Reds ended a 30-year wait for top-flight glory in a season that also saw them crowned world champions following on from last year’s Champions League success. The award was announced by ex-Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson, after whom the trophy is now named. “Jurgen, fantastic,” Ferguson said on Sky Sports. “We speak about Leeds spending 16 years in the Championship, but Liverpool 30 years since winning that league, incredible. “You thoroughly deserved it. The performance level of your team was outstanding. Your personality runs right throughout the whole club. It was a marvellous performance. “I’ll forgive you for waking me up at 3.30am to tell me you have won the league! Thank you, but anyway, you thoroughly deserved it. Well done.” Klopp declared himself “absolutely delighted” to get the award, which he dedicated to his staff. And the 53-year-old said he was honoured to be handed a trophy named in honour of Ferguson.Advertisement
