Is the millennial challenge a matter of age … or mindset?

first_img continue reading » Throughout the halls of most credit union events, you will hear someone issuing to the organization’s leadership an imperative to recruit younger board members, which will help solve the aging membership issue.As a scholar/thinker/strategist, I ask, is the recruitment of younger board members actually going to solve the problem, or is the problem based on another, masked issue? Having posed that question, I decided to study the leadership ages of companies that are currently winning millennials. The results are shown in the table.Based on this, one can definitely see that leading millennial companies have similar leadership ages to that of credit unions; therefore, how are they winning when credit unions aren’t? 15SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Battle for safety: Three-way fight on the final day

first_imgKampala, Uganda | PREMIER LEAGUE | The battle for safety will be decided on the final day as Aston Villa, Watford and AFC Bournemouth fight for one place in the Premier League and it could all come down to goal difference, or even goals scored.Villa are outside the relegation zone for the first time since February and are the team in form, having taken seven points from a possible nine, most recently beating Arsenal on Tuesday.They travel to West Ham United knowing a draw would put them out of reach of AFC Bournemouth. Through goal difference, they can also stay above Watford by matching the Hornets’ result at Arsenal.Villa can take heart from their goalless draw in September’s reverse fixture against West Ham, while their Egyptian star Trezeguet will aim for more heroics after scoring three goals in his last three matches.For Watford, who have lost their last five away matches, a draw at Emirates Stadium would also keep them above AFC Bournemouth, but must hope it is better than Villa’s result to overtake them.If Villa win, Watford must do the same while also achieving a two-goal swing in goal difference. Both winning with a one-goal swing would mean the two sides finish level on points and goal difference, but Villa would stay up through scoring six more goals this season.Cherries’ great escape?AFC Bournemouth travel to Everton where only a victory, combined with defeats for both Villa and Watford, will keep them up.Although Eddie Howe’s Cherries can draw confidence from their 3-1 win in September’s reverse fixture, Carlo Ancelotti has yet to be beaten in his nine matches at Goodison as Everton manager.*****PLShare on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Further human rights violation come to light at Qatar 2022 WC

first_imgAdvertisement qspNBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs3ba1Wingsuit rodeo📽Sindre E2zp( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) xs3evWould you ever consider trying this?😱r1kvCan your students do this? 🌚1aRoller skating! Powered by Firework The 2022 FIFA World Cup will be hosted in Qatar and hundreds of migrant labourers used for construction, are being forced to work in extreme temperatures, report Amnesty International. Qatar’s construction boom hit its peak this summer, ahead of the World Cup and most of the workers are toiling hard in temperatures of up to 45C for up to 10 hours a day with hundreds estimated to be dying from heat stress every year. The Qatari authorities however, have claimed that they are on course to protect the workers from heat-related injuries through a work ban that prohibits working in unshaded outdoor areas between 11.30 and 3pm.Advertisement The country’s construction boom started following their successful bid for the 2022 FIFA World Cup and the country’s migrant worker population suddenly rose to 1.9m. Many of these young men are from Nepal, India, Bangladesh and Pakistan who travel to the country to build the stadiums, roads and hotels that will service the tournament.Advertisement Doha, the capital, is currently hosting the World Athletics Championships and the athletes have already complained about the extreme heat conditions last week. But the workers remain in dire situations as there is a serious risk of harm from heat stress between 9am and 12 noon throughout October. A recent research showed that working in high temperatures puts a huge strain on the human cardiovascular system, leading to fatal heart attacks and other cardiovascular diseases.A professor of cardiology at the Oslo University Hospital said, “Young men have a very low incidence of heart attacks yet hundreds of them are dying every year in Qatar attributed to cardiovascular causes. Their bodies cannot take the heat stress they are being exposed to.”Advertisement While a government spokesperson claimed, “We know that working conditions, particularly in summer, can be challenging and that heat stress needs particular attention, which is why we have introduced the national heat stress guidance.”Professor Tord Kjellstrom, a consultant on environmental and occupational health for the United Nations has asked for immediate solutions to this problem citing,“As global temperatures rise because of the climate crisis, the health risk posed by heat stress will have devastating health consequences for millions, yet is still not being seen as the emergency that it is. This has to change.”  Advertisementlast_img read more

The Death of the Gatekeepers

first_img“You aren’t tall enough.”Thank you very much for your time, but I believe someone is going to hire me anyway.“You don’t have the right education. You aren’t Ivy League.”Thanks so much for your time. I believe you are wrong, and I believe someone, likely someone across the street, is going to recognize my value and give me a job. See you soon.“We don’t think your book is good enough to publish.”Thank you so much for taking the time to read my manuscript and for your opinion. I am going to go ahead and publish it anyway.“We don’t think you have a good enough voice. Come back and try again next year.”I so much appreciate you taking the time to hear me. But I am a singer, and I am going to go ahead and share my voice with the world all the same. See you at the Grammys, bitches.The Gatekeeper’s DemiseThere are no more gatekeepers. There is no one with the right or the ability to stand between you and your sharing your gift with the world.If you want to be a model, no one can stand between you and the people who believe you are exactly right for their campaign. You can watch the television shows where aspiring models are told they’re not good enough, but know that those models can work with or without anyone’s permission.If someone doesn’t believe you are good enough to hire, for whatever reason, there is someone across the street waiting for someone just like you. Even without the Ivy League education. Even without the sheepskin. The person who believes you aren’t good enough has their own opinion, and that opinion belongs to them alone.Maybe you have written the great American novel only to be turned down by every major publisher. There is no one that can stop you from publishing your book, promoting it yourself, and building and serving your own community, the community of people who love your stories and the way you tell them.You are singer? Your voice isn’t anything like those people you hear on American Idol or The Voice? Neither is Bob Dylan’s, Neil Young’s, Brian Johnson’s, or Bruce Springsteen’s. The tools to record are cheap and ubiquitous. So are the tools to reach your community.There are no more gatekeepers. The only thing standing between you sharing who and what you are with the world is your willingness to put yourself out there. All you need is confidence.last_img read more

Yellowknife business woman fearful of violence around day shelter

first_imgCharlotte Morritt-JacobsAPTN NewsApril Desjarlais spends much of her work day monitoring security camera footage of the Yellowknife sobering center and day shelter.The Metis business owner is located next door and is fearful from the violence she’s witnessed.On April 10, Desjarlais called emergency responders after she watched a woman get knocked to the ground on the sidewalk outside of her office window.“I was sitting exactly right here sitting with a client. I felt her head resonate on my feet because she was hit so hard and knocked unconscious for well over two minutes,” Desjarlais said.The day before, Desjarlais attended a city hall meeting and voiced her frustration over what she attributed as a changed atmosphere in the area of the shelter.(April Desjarlais monitors her security cameras in her Yellowknife office. Photo: Charlotte Morritt-Jacobs/APTN)She said she’d pleaded for more communication well before the shelter opened.“When the Health and Social services Department presented at city hall in Sept 2018, they had mentioned that was an open communication going on, a lot of dialogue between myself and their department,” she said.“I had never even been introduced to them at that moment.”Desjarlais said respects the work of the shelter staff and doesn’t see the issue as a “not in my backyard,” argument.However, the shelter resides in the same neighbourhood as the downtown liquor store, and sits just a stone’s throw away while sharing an alleyway.“The proximity of the day shelter to the liquor store is encouraging a never ending cycle of binge drinking and we see it day in and day out,” said Desjarlais.“At the beginning in early morning it is a fairly happy atmosphere around here but as the day moves on and individuals are onto their second, third or fourth bottles that’s when the violence increases.”(A fight breaks out near the Yellowknife shelter)In an effort to gain traction and keep the public informed on what is going on, Desjarlais has taken to Facebook and created the “Yellowknife day shelter neighbours group,” posting several videos depicting altercations involved people presumably in the area because of the shelter.The day shelter and sobering centre opened in September 2018.Operations of the day shelter are managed by the NWT Disabilities Council, contracted by the territorial health and social service department.APTN News requested an on-camera interview but was told no one was available to discuss the matter.On the same block, property owner John Willistone said he, like Desjarlais, was not consulted prior to the shelter opened.“No one came to us to say we are going to do this, do you have any suggestions. How do you think it is going to impact your businesses here,” he said.Williston rents out the building on 51st Ave., which house businesses such as Subway and Korea House.“We have had broken windows and fights in Subway,” he said. The poor guy who owns subway was been burdened with that.“The  girls at Korea house there have been days where they lock the door and when they see a customer they quickly unlock the door and run out.”Desjarlais is also losing business and said she is losing a tenant of a decade because of an alleged assault that took place as an employee was coming into work in the middle of the day.She is now advocating for a good neighbor agreement involving all stakeholders in the area.“If we had something in place, something that addresses all the challenges that we have and holds people accountable, maybe enforceable by a bylaw we really can see change on the street,” she said.She admitted that she has seen an increase of RCMP presence since the videos posted on the Facebook group have been shared online, but she is afraid the support may only be temporary.“We have actually seen RCMP stop individuals and dump their liquor. Even search their bags and jackets to only find more and more bottles. As they are walking into the shelter they are getting dumped. But is this just a reactionary thing,” Desjarlais said.Until solutions to deal with the issues Desjarlais has cited she will monitor street fights from her office [email protected]@aptncharlottelast_img read more

HC restrains IABF from using India or Indian in name

first_imgNew Delhi: The Delhi High Court passed an interim order on Thursday restraining Indian Amateur Boxing Federation (IABF) from using ‘India’ or ‘Indian’ in its name. Justice Prathiba M Singh also asked IABF, which was in the process of conducting a national sub-junior men and women boxing championship, to inform all the participants that they are not a recognised national sports federation of boxing. The court’s interim order came on a plea by Boxing Federation of India (BFI) seeking permanent injunction against IABF from using word ‘India’ or its natural variations and from representing themselves as a national sports federation for boxing or that it is recognised by Indian Olympics Association, Ministry of Sports and Youth Affairs and International Boxing Association (AIBA). Also Read – Dhoni, Paes spotted playing football togetherAdvocates Hrishikesh Baruah, Parth Goswami and Hemant Phalpher, representing the BFI, submitted in the court that IABF was in the process of conducting national sub-junior men and women boxing championship in Jabalpur and was collecting money from boxers as entry fees. BFI, which claims to be the recognised national sports federation for boxing in India, said IABF was misrepresenting itself as being affiliated with the IOA, which is factually an incorrect statement. Besides IABF, its president Abhishek Matoria and secretary general Rakesh Thakran were also made parties to the suit. The court perused a February 1 letter issued by IABF seeking to conduct the first sub-junior inter zonal men and women national boxing championship 2018-2019 in Jabalpur between March 10 and 13 and between March 12 and 15 respectively.last_img read more
