Additional efforts could help FinCEN collect most accurate cost estimates

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr This post is currently collecting data… This is placeholder text continue reading »center_img CUNA submitted comments Tuesday on the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network’s (FinCEN) continued efforts to update burden estimates for Bank Secrecy Act regulations. The Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) requires agencies to estimate the burdens their regulations impose on regulated industries.“CUNA supports FinCEN’s efforts to update these PRA burden estimates in order to more accurately understand the regulatory compliance costs to financial institutions,” the letter reads. “We also agree that the identify verification, list consultation and recordkeeping burdens are relevant for accurately calculating the true costs of complying with the Customer Identification Program (CIP) regulations.”The letter also notes that CUNA believes this PRA update can help FinCEN strike the right balance between the costs imposed on leanly staffed and primarily locally oriented credit unions and the benefits that the federal government and law enforcement gain from the regulation’s requirement.last_img read more

Monday Wrap Up

first_imgCongratulations to the East Central Trojans on winning their 4A sectional title last Friday night against Edgewood High School.  Unfortunately, the Batesville Bulldogs came up one touchdown short against the Brownstown Central Braves.Girls basketball got underway this past week.  It appears that Greensburg, Lawrenceburg, and South Ripley are 3 of the teams to beat in this area.  It is very early, so we will have to wait and see how things progress.In recent blogs I have mentioned athletes who had great fall seasons.  I want to add 2 names to that list.  Lauren Kelley of Franklin County High School who was an individual sectional champion in cross country, and Georgia Gratz of Batesville High School who finished her career as one of the most prolific scorers in soccer for this area.  Congratulations, Ladies!last_img read more

Science of Hope Comes to Thurston County

first_imgFacebook0Tweet0Pin0Submitted by The Thurston County Prosecuting Attorney’s OfficeIn collaboration with TOGETHER!, Family Support Center of South Sound, Thurston Thrives, and the United Way of Thurston County, the Thurston County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office is excited to announce The Science of Hope workshops with Dr. Chan Hellman, a nationally recognized researcher in Hope theory and research. As part of the Thurston Thrives community wide effort in creating a strong, healthy, and safe community – the Science of HOPE brings together community partners in creating positive community impact.What is the Science of Hope? Hope is a cognitive process requiring the capacity to develop pathways toward a desirable goal and the ability to direct and sustain mental energy toward those paths. Hope is the result of “will power” plus “way power!”Why is the Science of Hope so impactful to our community? Having high levels of Hope improves coping skills, buffers against stress, predicts achievement, enhances positive relationships, and promotes healthy adaptive behaviors and resiliency. Research tells us that Hope is a leading indicator of success in relationships, academics, career, and business.Because Hope has such a positive impact on building thriving communities and individuals, we are thrilled to bring Dr. Hellman to Thurston County. Specializing in research, evaluation, measurement and statistics, Dr. Hellman is one of the nation’s leading researchers on understanding and measuring Hope and the concept of Hope as a social gift.All Science of Hope workshops are free and open to the public – pre-registration is required. All the details about the workshops and registration can be found here.Workshops include: Building Hopeful Communities, Building Hopeful Organizations, Hope on the Front Lines, The Economic Value of Hope, and Hope in Education.All workshops will be held at the SPSCC Lacey Campus, located at 4220 6th Ave SE, Lacey.Additional information on Thurston Thrives. http://thurstonthrives.org/news/.last_img read more

17 days agoBarcelona battling to have Dembele red card overturned

first_imgAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say Barcelona battling to have Dembele red card overturnedby Carlos Volcano17 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveBarcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele’s red card against Sevilla is unlikely to be overturned.It will mean he is set to miss the clash with Real Madrid. The RFEF code says insulting a referee comes with at least a two game ban.Mateo Lahoz sent off Dembele for saying “very bad, you’re very bad” after he dismissed Ronald Araujo on the defender’s Barca debut.In 2016 Celta midfielder Fabian Orellana was banned for three games for telling the referee “how bad you are”. Two for the insult and one for getting two bookings. last_img read more

For many hotels terror risks make tight security routine

first_imgIn many parts of the world, the constant fear of extremist attacks has led to tighter security measures at hotels and resorts, but that is less so in the United States, where hotels are reluctant to intrude on the privacy of guests.Security experts say the shooting attack that left at least 59 people dead in Las Vegas could lead to more cameras and more training for hotel staff.More aggressive measures such as metal detectors or X-ray screening of guests and luggage — standard for airline travel — are less likely to gain footing in the U.S. because of cost and privacy concerns.Although they are private property, hotels are notably public spaces in most of the world. In many places, luxury hotels have entrances from shopping malls, and their lobbies serve as a refuge from noisy, chaotic streets.Hotel operators in other countries are increasingly deploying armed guards, vehicle barricades, X-ray machines and other measures to reduce the risk of attack.The King David Hotel in Jerusalem, where President Donald Trump and other foreign leaders have stayed, reportedly uses infrared cameras carried by balloons and robots in sewers to search for bombs. Windows on higher floors can withstand gunfire and rocket-propelled grenades, and the air conditioning system is designed to block attacks using poison gas.The Resorts World Manila casino in the Philippines said it hired a security contractor, Blackpanda, and established new security protocols after a man with a gambling addiction carried out an arson attack in June that left 37 dead, the latest major incident in Asia.Even before the attack, visitors to Resorts World — like many other hotels, office buildings and shopping malls in Manila — were required to pass through metal detectors and have their bags X-rayed. Somehow the attacker got past hotel security with an ammunition vest and assault rifle.That was a trifling arsenal compared with the 23 guns and prodigious ammunition stockpile that 64-year-old Stephen Paddock hoarded in his room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel casino overlooking the Las Vegas Strip and a packed country music festival.Attention is certain to focus on how Paddock was able to carefully prepare and stage his deadly attack on Sunday night.“My guess is we will see more security cameras at many hotels and more monitoring of people who bring many large packages to a hotel room,” said Bjorn Hanson, a professor of hospitality and tourism at New York University. “But I don’t think one event will lead to more intrusive measures” in the U.S. such as metal detectors or X-raying guests’ bags.Hanson also believes that hotels, perhaps pressured by their insurance carriers, will increase training of staff to spot suspicious behaviour or materials left in rooms. There is a model for that in training to help staff spot human trafficking, he said.Jeffrey Price, a security expert at Metropolitan State University of Denver, said employees who clean rooms should report it to a supervisor if they see weapons, but that screening guests’ bags would be difficult in a place like Las Vegas, where people having a lot of luggage is not all that unusual.“It would be a logistical nightmare to screen everybody going into and out of the hotel room, not to mention costing billions of dollars,” Price said. “That also gets into all sorts of privacy-rights issues.”Hanson and Price said people who attend major public events should take their own precautions including knowing where the exits are, having an escape route in mind and a place to meet with companions if they get separated.The American Hotel and Lodging Association said that hotels in Las Vegas were working closely with local law enforcement after the shooting.“Hotels have safety and security procedures in place that are regularly reviewed, tested and updated as are their emergency response procedures,” the group’s president, Katherine Lugar, said in a statement. “As we better understand the facts in the coming days, we will continue to work with law enforcement to evaluate these measures.”Hotels already employ security measures such as asking guests to show their room key in the lobby, and limiting access to some floors to those who have a keycard. But because the U.S. hasn’t had the same experience — in frequency or ferocity — of hotel attacks in countries where security is tougher, that could make stringent measures seem less worthy when applied against a cost-benefit ratio.Other regions can’t afford or aren’t willing to take the risk. For instance, Africa saw two attacks on hotels within months of each other in 2015 — 38 died in Tunisia and 18 in Mali.Tunisia depends on tourism and seen arrivals plummet since a spate of attacks. Since 2015, hotels have beefed up police presence and brought in metal detectors.At the Radisson Blu hotel in Mali’s capital of Bamako, there is now a scanner for bags, and vehicles are blocked from driving in front of the building.In some cases, extra security steps were not enough.In 2009, attackers in Indonesia smuggled explosives past security guards and metal detectors and set off a blast at the Marriott and the Ritz-Carlton hotels in Jakarta that killed eight. Six years earlier, a car bomb at the Jakarta Marriott killed 12.In India in 2008, extremists targeted two luxury hotels, a train station and restaurant in a 60-hour siege in Mumbai that left more than 160 dead.Hotel chains operating in India including Accor, Hyatt and Marriott now use handheld trace detectors and X-ray scanners to check for explosives and contraband. The upscale Lemon Tree Hotel at New Delhi’s airport brought in a facial recognition system to keep track of visitors.Indonesia and India have strengthened hotel security since then, said Mario Hardy, CEO of the Pacific Asia Travel Association. Vehicles are checked, many hotels scan luggage with X-rays, and there are more security cameras.“As consumers we may sometime see those as nuisance, but I think events such as these remind us all the importance of security measures,” he said.___Kelvin Chan reported from Hong Kong; David Koenig reported from Dallas.last_img read more

Better prices and new pipelines expected to drive higher Canadian crude output

first_imgCALGARY – A pipeline capacity gap that is impeding the movement of Western Canada’s crude to market will close by 2021 and there will be surplus room from about 2022 until 2030, according to the Canadian Energy Research Institute.The Enbridge Line 3 and Trans Mountain expansion pipeline are expected to come onstream in about two years, followed by the Keystone XL pipeline about a year later, the Calgary-based think-tank said Tuesday in a forecast based on financial and market modelling.It predicts Canadian crude oil production will jump to 7.2 million barrels per day by 2038 from 4.2 million bpd last year, aided by thirsty markets that will drive global oil prices above US$100 per barrel by 2030.Oil production growth will come mainly from the oilsands, which will build from the current 2.65 million barrels per day to just under 5.5 million bpd by 2038, CERI says in its reference scenario.“In all cases, we see increases in the production of oilsands because we see increasing demand for oil globally,” said CERI CEO Allan Fogwill.“We see the market access issue being resolved and we also see improvements coming in the production of oilsands, helping reduce the cost.”Its oil production forecast is higher than one released last week by the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, which predicted that Canadian oil output will increase to 5.6 million bpd by 2035 as oilsands production rises to 4.2 million bpd.Emissions from the oilsands would exceed the Alberta government’s cap of 100 million tonnes of carbon dioxide per year by 2030 with current technology, Fogwill said, but added new technologies are expected to allow the industry to continue to grow without violating the cap.CERI foresees a much darker future for natural gas than oil, with rising production from shale gas wells in the U.S. replacing western Canadian gas in its traditional markets of Eastern Canada, the eastern U.S. and, eventually, mid-continent U.S.Gas production will fall from current levels of about 16.5 billion cubic feet per day to about 15.4 bcf/d over the next two decades unless LNG export facilities are built to send gas to new markets overseas, Fogwill said.About 14 liquefied natural gas processing facilities have been proposed for the West Coast but none are being built as yet. CERI calculates that two LNG terminals would add about five billion cf/d to demand for gas mainly from Alberta and B.C.The picture for natural gas could get even worse if oilsands producers succeed in their goal of reducing the amount of gas they burn to create steam to produce bitumen, Fogwill said.Follow @HealingSlowly on Twitter.last_img read more
