Consumers fear card fraud

first_img KCS-content whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Share Consumers fear card fraud whatsapp Half of consumers worry about card fraud more than other financial threats, according to a survey today from ACI Worldwide. The payment systems provider says global research, surveying 4,200 consumers across 14 countries, also revealed too many people fail to take basic precautions for protecting themselves from financial crime. Its data showed that in the UK nearly one in ten (nine per cent) consumers break the cardinal rule – never carry your PIN number with your card. On average, this figure rises to 12 per cent globally. The survey also found 15 per cent of UK consumers are still throwing bank statements and receipts in the bin rather than shredding them.

In April we don’t know yet, probably a little higher than March. The reason I gave you these numbers is to show you that the market is oversupplied,” Naimi told reporters.Two Saudi-based industry sources said last week the kingdom had cut output due to poor demand, prompting selling by traders who saw it as a sign of a well-supplied market. But crude rebounded later in the week on optimism about the US economy. whatsapplast_img read more

Site This single family house is located in a gated community on a hill near Taipei. Ever since the beginning of the design, a portion of the land property right was not clearly defined (the issue had been resolved later) hence the structure is limited to be in the North-West of the site. The result is that only 98 sqm of the land is permitted to be developed on this 280 sqm site and the building has to grow vertically with each interior floor area varies from 46 sqm to 76 sqm only (including stair case & elevator shaft).Save this picture!Floor PlanOne main challenge is to satisfy the needs of a multi-generational life style (grandparents, parents, and kids living together) consists of 6 family members in such a limited space. Another main challenge is to respond the local climate which is characterized by intensive heat & sunlight, frequent rain, and high humidity. Save this picture!Courtesy of Preposition ArchitectureOne Identity, Multiple Fronts The House is at a corner between a 6M wide community major rout and a 4M wide lane. The neighboring houses are all facing the 4M lane on the South-West side. The design follows this pattern making its South-West facade to be perceived as a building front from exterior. This is the first “front” of the house. Only few limited openings are created on this first front due to privacy requirements and western exposure to direct sunlight. All the major openings are facing South-East allowing natural light from this direction. Therefore, from the interior, the “front” of the house would be perceived as the one facing the garden instead of the one facing the lane – the “front” turns 90 degrees from outside to inside. The garden keeps the major route in a distance to provide adequate privacy. This is the second “front” of the house. Save this picture!Courtesy of Preposition ArchitectureRight by the site, the major community route makes a big turn and directs all uphill views toward this house. To address this significant direction, a volume is created on the East wing and angled towards this specific direction. When approaching the house uphill, this angled facade becomes the “front” of the house. This third front also connects the other two and completes the totality and identity of the house. Save this picture!Courtesy of Preposition ArchitectureExploring the Characters & Possibilities of Suburb Taipei The area has the distinct characters of suburb Taipei: high density development within natural surroundings. They are small urban blocks between mountains. Most land lots are very small with very limited open space. We concentrate the volumes on one side of the site leaving nearly half of the site being a garden – a sufficient open space to itself. Shortly after the project completion, birds, bees, frogs… quickly settled in the garden. The solid and the void play equally important roles in the project; they counter weight each other and being a backdrop for each other. Multiple levels of outdoor space were created allowing open space extends from ground level up.Save this picture!Courtesy of Preposition ArchitectureMicro-climate Control via Design Strategies Located in sub-tropical zone, Taiwan has long and intensive summer hence reducing heat absorption is an issue needed to be addressed carefully. The building is a RC structure which stores large amount of thermal energy and affect physical environment. Rather than relying on mechanical equipments, this project responds the heat attack through design strategies. The volumetric arrangement plays a role as the first defense at a larger scale. The West rectangular volume is substantially larger and taller than the East triangular volume, and the East volume has more setback distance than the West volume has. Save this picture!Courtesy of Preposition ArchitectureThis arrangement makes the West volume being a sun-shelter to the East which will be completely under the shadow of the West volume after 2PM in summer hence reduces the radiant heat absorption. The West volume is covered with louvers blocking direct sunlight from the West and South. The laundry room and bathrooms inside the West volume are placed at the very West corner and protrude outside to further block direct West sunlight to bedroom exterior wall and help reducing the humidity in the laundry room and bathrooms.Save this picture!Courtesy of Preposition ArchitectureProject gallerySee allShow lessNew Images of Herzog & de Meuron’s Latest New York Condo BuildingUnbuilt ProjectSteven Holl: “Architecture Needs to be Rekindled with the Other Arts”Videos Share Architects: Preposition Architecture Area Area of this architecture project CopyHouses•Taipei, Taiwan (ROC) Area:  350 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  Houses CopyAbout this officePreposition ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTaipeiTaiwan (ROC)Published on January 13, 2016Cite: “Family House in Taipei / Preposition Architecture” 13 Jan 2016.

Melanie May | 16 April 2019 | News Neil Laybourn & Jonny Benjamin announced as Fundraising Convention Plenary Speakerscenter_img Tagged with: National Fundraising Convention The Institute of Fundraising has announced that Neil Laybourn, Founder of This Can Happen, and mental health campaigner Jonny Benjamin MBE will be the Plenary Speakers for July’s Fundraising Convention.Laybourn (main image: left) and Benjamin (right) will speak on the second day of Convention, Tuesday 2 July. Jonny Benjamin MBE is an award-winning mental health campaigner, film producer, public speaker, writer and vlogger. At 20 he was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder and ten years ago met Neil Laybourn when he stopped to talk to Benjamin who at the time was sitting by Waterloo Bridge contemplating suicide. Talking to Laybourn persuaded him to take a step back, and his 2014 social media campaign with Rethink Mental Illness to #FindMike: the man who talked him out of jumping off the bridge, went viral and led to Benjamin becoming a prominent spokesperson on the subject of suicide.He now speaks publicly about living with mental illness and has written articles and given interviews on TV, radio and in print around the world to help educate and break stigma. He has also produced and presented documentaries on BBC Three and Channel 4 on the subjects of mental health and suicide.In 2016 Benjamin also launched ThinkWell, a mental health programme for schools, and in 2017 wrote the first of two books on mental health entitled The Stranger On The Bridge. Laybourn was also recognised for his part in the #FindMike campaign, with a Pride of Britain award in 2014. In 2017 he came up with the idea for This Can Happen – a mental health conference tackling challenges in the workplace. In the same year he co-founded the international mental health campaigning organisation You Alright Mate? to bring business leaders, fellow campaigners and international support organisations together.Most recently Laybourn co-founded the charity Beyond Shame Beyond Stigma to raise funds for preventative mental health and young people’s mental health solutions and in July was awarded an Honorary Doctorate by Bristol University for work in mental health campaigning and advocacy work, alongside Benjamin.Together, the two men have spent the last four years helping organisations from schools and universities to large corporates in the UK and across the world tackle the stigma of mental health and offer support to workers and students facing challenges.More information on the Convention programme is available on the site.  485 total views,  2 views today Advertisementlast_img read more

Fired for striking, grad students win reinstatement

first_imgGraduate student workers at the University of California-Santa Cruz, represented by United Auto Workers Local 2865, have won the rehiring of 41 teaching assistants fired in February for striking. “In large part, this is a win for Santa Cruz workers — for workers in general,” said Veronica Hamilton, the UAW 2865 Santa Cruz unit chair and one of the 41 fired. (Santa Cruz Sentinel, Aug. 13)University of California-Santa Cruz students support striking teaching assistants, Feb. 13.The struggle began in 2019 after a contract between Local 2865 and the statewide university system was ratified. Santa Cruz teaching assistants went on a wildcat strike — not permitted under the contract’s “no-strike” clause — to demand a Cost of Living Allowance (COLA) increase. They argued that their $2,400 monthly income was not enough to cover the high costs of rent and other necessities in that part of the country, and withheld grades for that semester. On Feb. 10, they escalated the fight to an all-out strike, and graduate students at several other campuses joined their “COLA4ALL” campaign.The movement for a livable income won support among the student body, the faculty and the community, with several militant demonstrations blocking traffic. The firings prompted solidarity actions around the state.The university retaliated against 75 Santa Cruz strikers, firing over half and denying others teaching work. Those with the lighter punishment won a path to reinstatement in an earlier agreement. Now with the latest mediated settlement, all those disciplined will have the opportunity to work this fall.Disciplinary records will be expunged, including those of 245 who were given warning letters for withholding grades.This is still only a partial win for the student-workers; reinstatement could be revoked if they strike again. While the UC management extended a $2,500 yearly “housing allowance” during the strike, teaching assistants still need the COLA raise. But as Hamilton told the Sentinel, “Some of our most brilliant scholars are able to return and that’s excellent.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Senate Finishes Work on Farm Bill Until June

first_img Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Senate Finishes Work on Farm Bill Until June SHARE Previous articlePence Signs Farm Transportation BillsNext articleSenate Vote to Cut Crop Insurance Funding Angers Corn Growers Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter SHAREcenter_img By Gary Truitt – May 23, 2013 Senate Finishes Work on Farm Bill Until June The Senate will not hold additional votes on amendments to the Agriculture Reform, Food and Jobs Act of 2013 until they return from the Memorial Day recess. That means the next vote is scheduled for Monday, June 3rd. On Thursday – Senators voted on three crop insurance amendments. An amendment to end crop insurance subsidies for tobacco was rejected 44 to 52. Ninety-four Senators voted to approve an amendment to authorize the use of the insurance fund to reduce fraud and maintain crop insurance program integrity. That amendment was sponsored by North Carolina’s Kay Hagan. Senators also agreed to an amendment from Dick Durbin of Illinois and Tom Coburn of Oklahoma to limit premium subsidies for those with an average adjusted gross income above 750-thousand dollars. The vote was 59 to 33.Senate Ag Chair Debbie Stabenow urged Senators to vote against the Durbin-Coburn amendment. She said it would raise premium costs by 40-percent for the affected farmers and would reduce the amount of acreage that must comply with federal conservation standards. According to an analysis of the amendment from former USDA Chief Economist Keith Collins – released by the American Crop Insurers Association Thursday – the affected farmers would be looking at a 37-percent increase in the cost of their premiums if they are buying 70-percent coverage because the amendment would reduce the government’s premium support by 15 points. A farmer purchasing 50-percent coverage – according to the analysis – will see a 45-percent increase.The vote for the Durbin-Coburn amendment wasn’t just a defeat for the crop insurance industry – but also for the coalition of farm and conservation groups that reached the agreement to link crop insurance to conservation compliance with no income restrictions on subsidies. Other groups – like the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition – supported the amendment. Source: NAFB News Servicelast_img read more
