CUs more comfortable with idea of board compensation

first_imgShould your credit union compensate its board of directors? That was one of the topics discussed in the CUES Podcast Episode 24. Matt Fullbrook, manager of the Clarkson Centre for Board Effectiveness at the Joseph L. Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto and faculty member at CUES Governance Leadership Institute™, has studied credit union board compensation and shared some of his findings.One interesting trend: Years ago, when the topic of board compensation was discussed at CUES Governance Leadership Institute, most attendees said they were directly opposed to board compensation. However, now most attendees support it at least philosophically, even if they wouldn’t compensate at their own credit union.The primary motivator for compensating board members—CU or otherwise—is “you want to attract the best people,” says Fullbrook. For a complicated organization like a credit union, which includes liability risk for the board members, “it’s a lot to ask somebody to commit to being on a board when you’re not paying them,” he says. continue reading » 15SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Man United captain to spend another night in a Greek jail cell

first_imgManchester United captain Harry Maguire was pictured today arriving at a Greek police station for a second night behind bars after allegedly punching a police officer and then attempting to bribe his way out custody. The £85million England international was allegedly involved in a bust-up with a group of other Englishmen before becoming ‘very abusive and aggressive’ towards officers who arrived to intervene last night on the island of Mykonos. Maguire, 27, spent the night in a cell along with two other men thought to be fellow players, aged 28 and 29, and the trio have been transferred to the neighbouring island of Syros where they will appear before the state prosecutor tomorrow on charges including aggravated assault, verbal assault and attempted bribery. The chief prosecutor told local media that he expects Maguire to make an apology at the hearing. Maguire, a father-of-two, was seen this evening being taken into Syros police station by plain-clothes officers after an hour-long ferry crossing to his new jail cell with the two other men. Police said that two of their officers suffered facial injuries during the scrap after they were allegedly hurled to the ground, punched and kicked. Maguire was yesterday pictured drinking at a pool party at SantAnna Bar with fellow United youngsters Marcus Rashford, 22, and Brandon Williams, 19, as well as Love Island star Chris Hughes, 27, and snooker player Judd Trump, 31 and his brother Joe Maguire. It is not clear if anybody at this party was with Maguire later that evening. Police today said that two groups of Englishmen were brawling outside Mykonos’ Fabrica bar in the early hours of Friday morning and when they tried to intervene they were rounded on by three men, including the centre-half. ‘When the brawl was all sorted out, one of the two groups – with the football players – started verbally abusing officers. There were several policemen there. At some point, one of the three members of the group – they were aged 27, 28, and 29 – threw a swing at one of the policemen and a fight ensued.’ Petros Vassilakis a police spokesman said.

They threw down at least two policemen, hit them with their fists and kicked them.’ The police spokesman continued. ‘I can’t tell you what they were telling us. All English swear words against the authorities and against the work of the police. All three, including the football player, are being held in custody, locked up in Mykonos cell. They will appear before a state prosecutor on the island of Syros later today to be charged with aggravated assault.’ Maguire, who earns £190,000-a-week plans to cut short his holiday and return to the UK, according to a source at Manchester United. Lawyers for the club have been in contact with their player and they are awaiting clarification from police on the island over what charges he might face. ‘We are expecting more information from Mykonos as clarification is needed over exactly what happened and what charges he will face, if any.’ The lawyers said.center_img Leaked: Video Of Harry Maguire Fighting In Mykonos Greece before getting arrested.Watch videohttps://t.co/gnNtc065XE| Harry Maguire Fight Video |Retweet pic.twitter.com/fRobGV5IQz— ƳungƁlacMale (@DMPAUL_SR) August 21, 2020 Loading…last_img read more

Indian Premier League Ravichandran Ashwin’s Mankading of Jos Buttler results in social media firestorm

first_imgAnd no. I don’t think Ashwin must henceforth be referred to as the “Line of Punjab.”#AshwinMankads— Ramesh Srivats (@rameshsrivats) March 26, 2019In the post-match press conference, Ashwin reiterated that he had done nothing wrong. “It’s there within the rules of the game. I don’t understand where the spirit of the game comes, naturally if it’s there in the rules it’s there. I don’t understand the point of sporting or sportive in that point because it’s rules. What applies for one man does not apply for everyone else,” Ashwin said. Upton, though, was blunt in his criticism. “I think R Ashwin’s actions tonight speak for him and represent him. When I looked in the eyes of his teammates, I’m not sure it represented his teammates. We’ll leave it up to the IPL fans to decide if that’s the kind of thing they want to see, and we’ll leave it up to the cricket world to judge R Ashwin’s actions tonight,” Upton said with anger. For all the Latest Sports News News, Indian Premier League News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. In April 2017, the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) tweaked the rules and cleverly changed the title of the law related to Mankading, which stated that it was the batsman’s fault in case he got mankaded. The new law 41.16 notes: “If the non-striker is out of his/her ground from the moment the ball comes into play to the instant when the bowler would normally have been expected to release the ball, the bowler is permitted to attempt to run him/her out.”  R Ashwin’s Mankading of Jos Buttler was the first-ever in history of IPL.Kings XI Punjab defeated Rajasthan Royals in Jaipur for the first time.Chris Gayle smashed 79 in the encounter while Jos Buttler hit 69. highlights This was not the first time that Buttler had been Mankaded, having been on the receiving end during the Edgbaston ODI between England and Sri Lanka in 2014 where Sri Lanka offspinner Sachithra Senanayake ran him out. Even for Ashwin, this was not the first time. In the 2012 tri-series in Australia, the offspinner had mankaded Sri Lanka’s Lahiru Thirimanne but the appeal was withdrawn by the-then captain Virender Sehwag.   New Delhi: The clash between Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab at the Sawai Mansingh stadium on Monday witnessed a controversial moment when Ravichandran Ashwin mankaded Jos Buttler when the England batsman was batting on 69 and guiding Rajasthan Royals towards victory. However, in a flash, Ashwin removed the bails at the non-striker’s end and appealed for a run-out. The third umpire had a look and gave him out. This resulted in a fiery exchange between Buttler and Ashwin and when the batsman was given out, he was livid. In the post-match greetings, there was no eye contact between Buttler and Ashwin while Rajasthan Royals head coach Paddy Upton exchanged some terse words with the offspinner. The incident fueled plenty of criticism on social media, with the England players having a go at Ashwin. Many former players believed that Ashwin’s action went against the Spirit of the Game and that it was unwarranted. Some former Indian players and commentators supported Ashwin’s actions while even Australian players, notably Rajasthan Royals mentor Shane Warne had some harsh words for Ashwin’s action. last_img read more

ISU expert says stress lingers for dairy producers

first_imgAMES — An Iowa State University Extension dairy specialist says stress continues to be an issue for milk producers trying to deal with low prices.Larry Tranel is also a psychologist. “We’ve seen a lot of cycles in dairy over time — but we really haven’t seen one that had this big a tail on it where it lasted two, three, four years with the low prices,” Tranel says. “We actually take a look at the stress… even though the dairy prices have come back somewhat — we still find that the stress itself is going to have a pretty long tail on it as families try to recover from it.”Doctor Tranel says the extended issues with low prices have taken a toll. “I’m seeing a level of stress that I probably haven’t seen in my 30-year career,” according to Tranel. “When we take a look at the magnitude of the stress — I would say it’s at a very a high level for the most part. Some have weathered the storm quite well — but there’s a lot of people that just really have a hard time.”He says dairy farmers are caught between a rock and hard place. “They can’t afford to get out for the asset values, he says, “but they really can’t afford to stay in either because of some cash flow issues that have lingered on for quite some time,” Tranel says.He says the long-term nature of the dairy industry issues can take a toll. “When people have things we call acute stress — like you have a barn fire or a tragic accident or something just happens real quickly — you don’t have time to prepare for it,” according to Tranel. “But when you have this chronic stress — just day-in day-out for four or five years in a row dealing with that — that’s the kind of stress that eats at peoples nerve endings and gets them more irritable.”Tranel says one of the techniques he recommends for people dealing with these situations is to write things down. He says it allows them to address the issues and move ahead.. As we do farm couple getaways where we bring in these farm couples to try to deal with communication issues, set goals on the farm, trying to transition themselves out of so much stress — the biggest thing they come back with is the fact that you made us write this down is what got us going to the next step. And if you wouldn’t have made us write this down — we’d be talking about this for the next 20 years,” Tranel says.Tranel made his comments at the recent Iowa Farm Bureau annual meeting.last_img read more
