Carter Stadium. Photo courtesy of TCU Football Twitter. While construction won’t be complete this season, TCU football is promising Horned Frog fans major improvements in their gameday experience. From buying a cold one to cooling off under giant fans on the concourse and watching highlights on a new video board, the Carter has been upgraded for the 2019 season. The “giant video board,” in the north end zone will be 53 feet wider and 18 feet taller than the previous screen, TCU athletic director Jeremiah Donati said.The new Jumbotron will be 108 feet wide and 48 inches tall, just larger than the screen in Baylor’s McLane Stadium. MillerCoors beer will be available in aluminum cans from the time the gates open until the start of the fourth quarter. Hard seltzer will also be available. Happy-hour concession prices will offer some half-priced concessions and knock $2 off beer prices from when the gates open until 30 minutes before kickoff, Donati said. In a tweet, Donati said the discounted concessions will be “your favorite food items,” but did not offer any other specifics. He predicted that the new grab-and-go convenience stores in the football stadium will have “food options you are going to love.” But in an effort to increase gameday safety, fans who leave the game will need a new ticket to re-enter the stadium. “In benchmarking other institutions, and anticipating trends in large venues, the elimination of the in-and-out policy is the safe action to take,” a spokesperson for the athletic department said. Finally, the visiting bands are being moved to the northwest corner of the stadium, leaving better seats for the TCU faithful. The clear bag policy remains the same, Donati said. The complete $100 million expansion project will not be completed until the start of the 2020 season, Donati announced in a tweet on July 25. “While very disappointing, we wouldn’t be able to deliver a game day experience that our donors deserved,” Donati said. “We have spent the last few weeks looking at every option to access the space but ultimately we believed our donors deserved better. We are committed to delivering a world class experience for them.” The project, which was delayed by weather, was anticipated to debut for Oct. 26’s homecoming game against Texas. The upgrades will include 48 new boxes, two private clubs, more than 1,000 club seats, 22 luxury suites, meeting spaces for corporate events and a 100-foot outdoor balcony overlooking Frog Alley and the TCU campus. The Frogs are set to open their 2019 season on Aug. 31 against Arkansas Pine-Bluff, donning brand-new uniforms for the season.

China announces “release” of Swedish publisher Gui Minhai

ChinaAsia – Pacific PredatorsImprisonedFreedom of expressionDisappearances to go further Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimescenter_img News News October 30, 2017 – Updated on November 9, 2017 China announces “release” of Swedish publisher Gui Minhai Help by sharing this information China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures PHOTO: PHILIPPE LOPEZ / AFP News Gui Minhai has not appeared in public since the announcement of his “release” on 24 October and is said to be staying with relatives in the eastern city of Ningbo while waiting for his passport to be renewed and for the Chinese authorities to let him travel to Germany, where his wife lives.“We are relieved by this announcement but we will not be able to talk of Gui Minhai’s release until he actually leaves China,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “His abduction, detention and forced confession on TV are illegal practices that should not exist.”Last of the five Hong Kong booksellersA co-owner of Causeway Bay Books, a Hong Kong bookstore, and Mighty Current, a publishing house specializing in sensationalist revelations about the private lives of Chinese leaders, Gui went missing on 14 October 2015 and was probably abducted by Chinese intelligence agents from his home in the Thai city of Pattaya.Four other Causeway Bay Books shareholders and employees who were kidnapped around the same time were gradually released the following spring.But Gui appeared on China’s state-owned CCTV on 17 January 2016 giving a “spontaneous” confession that was filmed in a Chinese detention centre. In tears, he said he had returned voluntarily to China to assume his “legal responsibility” for the death of a school student in a traffic accident in China years before, when he was driving while under the influence of alcohol.The account was not very credible, especially as he had already served a sentence at the time of the accident.Warning to government opponents“By abducting a foreign citizen outside China, the Chinese state apparatus sent a very clear warning to its opponents that it is not afraid to go after anyone publishing unwanted information, regardless of their passport or place of residence,” said Cédric Alviani, the head of RSF’s East Asia bureau.“We urge the international community to do more to get China to respect international law and to release the dozens of journalists and bloggers who are still in prison.”The Chinese Communist Party’s 19th congress, which finished last week, approved another five-year term for President Xi Jinping, who has developed a sophisticated apparatus for censoring news and information, spying on the public and cracking down on human rights activities.The People’s Republic of China is ranked 176th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Index, the same position as in 2016 and 2015.

Help to hold on to trained staff

Help to hold on to trained staffOn 18 Jan 2000 in Personnel Today David Blunkett has launched a training scheme aimed at countering employers’fears that newly-skilled staff will be poached.The Secretary of State for Education and Employment last week announced thatthe department will contribute to loans to employers to train staff. Theemployer, rather than the individual, will be responsible for repayment – butthis transfers to the new employer if the staff member leaves.”Each employer would gain the full benefit of investment, paying for itover an extended period,” Blunkett said. “Employers are often reluctant to invest in training because they fearthat trained employees would be poached by competitors.”The scheme is based on a recommendation from the Skills Task Force, headedby Chris Humphries. It would involve a partnership between the nationaltraining organisation setting up the scheme, administered by a bank. Governmentcontributions come via its subsidies to NTOs.Blunkett acknowledged there are severe skills shortages in certain sectors.He cited the gas industry, which registered only 128 new fitters last year, inan occupation where the workforce totals 100,000.www.dfee.gov.uk/news/last_img read more

From lender-to-lender: Tips to keep auto finance strong in tough times

first_imgThis is placeholder text In October, Allied Solutions’ CEO, Pete Hilger, moderated a panel on “The State of the Auto Financing Market” for NAFCU’s Virtual Lending Conference. During this conversation, James Schenck, CEO of Pentagon Federal, and Tom Kontos, Chief Economist for KAR Global discussed how lenders can develop strong, safe, and competitive lending programs in our current economic environment. Here are a few strategies lenders can leverage to strengthen their auto finance programs, identified during this panel presentation:Refine credit standards and pricing in preparation for increasing risksIt’s important to remain cautious with your credit standards to keep risks lower as more deferral and forbearance programs expire and the full impact of the pandemic – delinquencies and defaults – becomes clearer.If you are looking to expand into new markets, look at ways you can refine your credit scoring model to more accurately target borrowers within your preferred credit tiers rather than expanding your lending parameters outside of your comfort zone. Pricing risk accurately will help to expand into new markets, without needing to go beyond to your risk tolerance and appetite.Evolve remarketing strategies as repossession volume continues to growRepossession volume has grown over the past few months. Dealer demand has kept up with this growth in supply, given that the used car market remains strong among a more financially conservative consumer-base. This balance of supply and demand has helped keep repo values up for lenders. However, repo volume is going to continue growing as delinquencies and charge-offs grow, making it harder for lenders to keep up with the volume. Consider outsourcing remarketing processes to a third party that has the tools to scale appropriately and help free up resources to focus on other strategic priorities. These partners are equipped with the technology, data, and expertise to bring about the highest possible returns on behalf of your lending institution.Maintain a good mix in the loan portfolio to increase market share Developing a strong, diverse portfolio will help to sharpen your competitive edge and attract more borrowers on an ongoing basis. Here are some front-end and back-end strategies to strengthen your portfolio:Partner with fintech on the origination side to enhance and simplify consumer experiences and internal processes.Adopt technology to speed up underwriting and allow for same day, instant loan decisions to better compete with digital lenders.Put forth omni-channel marketing and advertising efforts (in house or outsourced) to get the word out about what loans you have and to get in front of your target markets.Diversify the loan options being offered to your target markets.Be more strategic in your mix of direct and indirect loans; indirect lending can be a great tool for opening new opportunities in markets where your institution is less recognizable or has weaker direct lending.Price insurance products (i.e. GAP, MBP, Debt Protection) into the loan to mitigate risks with protections paid-for by the borrower.There are always opportunities to maximize growth through any economic cycle. The key is to step back to learn where opportunities lie within your markets and among your consumers to determine how and where to focus your energy.Watch “The State of the Auto Finance Market” to dive deeper into lending growth and risk strategies.

Football mourns as plane crash kills Brazilian players

first_imgLa Unión, Colombia | AFP | The football world was plunged into mourning Tuesday after a plane carrying a Brazilian team crashed in the mountains in Colombia, killing 75 people with six survivors, officials said.Football legends Pele and Maradona as well as current superstar Lionel Messi led tributes to the players of Chapecoense Real.Having risen only recently from obscurity, the team was on its way to play in the finals of the Copa Sudamericana, South America’s second-biggest club tournament when the accident took place.“The pain is terrible. Just as we had made it, I will not say to the top, but to have national prominence, a tragedy like this happens,” club vice-president Ivan Tozzo told Globo SportTV.“It is very difficult, a very great tragedy.”Colombia’s civil aviation authority said in a statement that 75 people were killed in the crash and six survivors were being treated in hospital. ‘Electrical failures’ The charter plane of Bolivian company LAMIA, which left from the Bolivian city of Santa Cruz, declared an emergency at around 10:00 pm Monday (0300 GMT Tuesday).It reported “electrical failures” and crashed a short time later near the city of Medellin, its destination, officials said.The British Aerospace 146 airliner was first sold as new in 1999 and was used by two other airlines before being eventually acquired by LAMIA, a spokesman for the manufacturer told AFP.Aircraft tracking website Planespotters said it was sold to LAMIA in 2013.Specialist sites revealed that the same plane was used two weeks ago to fly the Argentine national team with Messi on board to San Juan, Argentina for a World Cup qualifying match.Britain’s Air Accidents Investigation Branch said it was sending investigators along with representatives of the plane’s manufacturer BAE Systems to Colombia to help with investigations. ‘Disastrous scene’ Scores of rescuers picked through the wreckage of the white fuselage which was plastered over a remote hillside in northwestern Colombia.The plane went down about 50 kilometers (30 miles) from Medellin, the country’s second largest city, in an area called Cerro Gordo.Elkin Ospina, the mayor of the town of La Ceja near the crash site, said the mountainous terrain was some 3,300 meters (10,800 feet) above sea level and very difficult to access.“We found ourselves faced with a disastrous scene. The plane was completely destroyed,” fire service captain Elkin Gonzalez told AFP. In all, there were 72 passengers and nine crew on board, including the team and numerous journalists going to cover the game.Rescuers and aviation authorities said the survivors were three players, two crew members and a journalist.“I have just seen the plane and given the state it is in, it is a miracle that six people survived,” said the governor of the surrounding Antioquia region, Luis Perez.The survivors included three players: defenders Helio Neto and Alan Ruschel and another goalkeeper, Jakson Follmann.The other known survivors were two crew members and a journalist.The team’s goalkeeper Marcos Danilo Padilha, 31, died on the way to hospital, the civil aviation authority said.His last-minute save in the semi-final had ensured the team made it through to the Copa Sudamericana final.Game suspended The cup final first-leg had been scheduled for Wednesday against Atletico Nacional of Colombia.In an emotional gesture, Nacional called in a statement for the title to be handed to its Brazilian opponents in tribute.It asked of CONMEBOL “that the Copa Sudamericana title be handed to Chapecoense Football Association as an honorary trophy for its great loss, and as a posthumous homage to the victims of the fatal accident that has put our sport in mourning.”Regional football confederation CONMEBOL suspended the game. It had yet to announce how the title would be settled.A source close to CONMEBOL told AFP it was “very unlikely” that the final would ever be played.Brazil’s President Michel Temer declared three days of mourning for the victims.Dashed dreams Chapecoense is seen as one of the minnows of Brazilian club football.It was founded in 1973 in the city of Chapeco in southern Santa Catarina state.After decades in the lower divisions, Chapecoense returned to Brazil’s top flight Serie A in 2014 for the first time since 1979.The mayor of Chapeco, Luciano Buligon, described the city’s despair, in tearful comments to TV Globo.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
