first_img Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPROVO, Utah-Wednesday, BYU men’s basketball addressed the media at the BYU Broadcasting Center for the Cougars’ annual media day.Representatives included head coach Mark Pope and seniors, forward Yoeli Childs, guard Jake Toolson and guard TJ Haws.Pope said he enjoys the fact that he has seven seniors as they have a “calming influence” on the rest of the squad and continued, “seniors are magic.”Pope also stated of his squad, “we love drama” concerning a question about how the Cougars handle adversity. Furthermore, he lauded former BYU head coach Dave Rose for helping his squad “understand the nuances of the game.”Childs, when asked what the Cougars have to do to play the right way this season, said “we need to get to the right spots [and] move the ball.”He was also asked about the addition of Toolson to the program and his previous experience with Pope at Utah Valley University. Childs was impressed with this move, saying “it takes out a lot of the guesswork.”In speaking of fellow senior forward Dalton Nixon, Childs lauded him as “a cutter” and “the perfect glue guy,” and calling him “the dude that everyone wants on their team.”Toolson cited the special bond that exists between himself and the coaching staff and said “I want to finish this experience with them.”When asked about Pope’s comment concerning the magic of seniors, Haws said “our guys really know what it takes to win day in and day out.”In closing, Haws said the seniors really want to go out and win and that this season presents a great opportunity for such to occur.

Campus ministry celebrates saint whose relic resides in Basilica

first_imgUnderneath the high altar of the Basilica of the Sacred Heart rests a relic of St. Marcellus, a Roman centurion martyred in 298 A.D. for refusing to deny his Catholic faith.Campus Ministry hosted its annual prayer service for St. Marcellus on Thursday night in the Basilica to remember and celebrate the martyr and all he represents.Fr. Peter Rocca, rector for the Basilica, said St. Marcellus refused to offer incense to an idol in honor of the emperor’s birthday during his time as a soldier in Tangiers, Morocco. He was put on trial for his disobedience and ultimately sentenced to death for his refusal to renounce his Christian faith. Oct. 30 is the feast day of St. Marcellus.“The story goes that he stood in front of the standards of his legion — the legion’s flags — and then made a public declaration that he was a Christian and could no longer keep the oath that he had made to serve the emperor,” Rocca said.The Basilica is also home to the relics of members of the Theban Legion, including its chief, St. Maurice. During the rule of Diocletian, a time of Christian persecution, the legion was instructed to kill a group of Christians they encountered. Many of the soldiers believed in the Christian faith and refused to follow orders, choosing to die instead.“These men, many of whom were martyrs, gave their lives for Christ,” Rocca said. “They point, not to themselves, but they point to their commitment to Jesus Christ, their faith in Jesus Christ. We need those kind of reminders, I think, in our daily lives.”Alan Kreider, professor emeritus at Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary, recounted the martyrdom of St. Marcellus at the prayer service. Rocca said a large number of Mennonites travel to the Basilica from Goshen, Indiana, each year to participate in the prayer service.“The Mennonites have almost adopted St. Marcellus in particular as a patron saint of their commitment to pacifism,” Rocca said. “ … They come all the way here, sometimes walking on foot, from Goshen, Indiana, to offer their prayers to God in front of the icon of St. Marcellus.”At the prayer service, Fr. Emmanuel Katongole, associate professor of theology and peace studies, delivered the 2015 St. Marcellus Day Address.St. Marcellus is considered the patron saint of conscientious objectors, which aligns with values Notre Dame hopes to instill in its students, Rocca said.“I think [St. Marcellus] is very important and relevant to students because he was willing to stand up for what he believed in, no matter what the cost might be,” Rocca said. “He had the courage to profess his faith in Christ, to speak the truth, to be a real witness to Jesus and his beliefs. I think we need models of people like that today.”During the years of Christian persecution, Mass was often celebrated in Roman catacombs on the tombs of martyrs, Rocca said. He said relics are often placed under altars in observance of this tradition. Fr. Sorin brought the relics of St. Marcellus, St. Maurice, the Theban Legion and many other saints to the University from his trips to Rome during the 1860s.“These relics are visible, tangible signs that speak to — in this case — the sacrifice that the individual made for his belief in Jesus Christ,” Rocca said.Rocca said St. Marcellus provides an example to guide students faced with making decisions.“I think too often we are hesitant to speak up, hesitant to do the right thing, hesitant to say the right thing,” Rocca said. “It’s a matter of taking to heart what we profess as Christians and living it out in our daily lives. And sometimes it will mean disagreeing with friends.“I would hope and think that all of our graduates would have the guts and the courage to say and do the right thing, just like St. Marcellus.”Tags: Basilica of the Sacred Heart, Campus Ministry, St. Marcelluslast_img read more

SMC student reflects on role as state delegate

first_imgSaint Mary’s junior Anna McCambridge proves college students can make a difference in politics.In August, the business major ran for and won the role of precinct delegate during the Michigan state primaries. Later, at a county convention, she was elected state delegate.McCambridge represents the Republican Party for Kent County, which encompasses her hometown of Grand Rapids, Michigan. After spontaneously attending a state convention as a guest along with a few friends, McCambridge said she felt inspired to run. She said she’s always been interested in politics, especially after coming to college; seeing other college students getting involved inspired her.“I saw what kind of impact I could have, despite my age,” McCambridge said.McCambridge attended her first state convention as an elected official in August. “The governor — as well as other Michigan state officials — attended and gave powerful remarks about how important it is to have representation even at such a local level,” she said. “It was pretty cool. As a delegate, I’m an elected official just as many other big name individuals are, so it’s not uncommon to be waiting in line for the ladies room with a senator in front of you and the governor’s wife behind you.”Recently, McCambridge traveled home for a county convention. “Myself and other Kent County delegates met in downtown Grand Rapids,” she said. “We listened to speeches from candidates running for local and party offices. “They travel to different county conventions to campaign and, later, state delegates from each Michigan county, including myself, will meet at the state convention to vote on them.”McCambridge has already voted for many leadership positions, including the Michigan Board of Education. “These are the people that will make a difference in our children’s education,” she said. “The people on the Board of Education are going to be passing laws that will affect the next generation, which will probably include my own future children.”Getting involved at the local level is one of the best things concerned citizens can do, McCambridge said. “While everyone’s focusing on the federal government, nobody’s focusing on the government here at home,” she said. “But it’s these smaller decisions that will affect us the most. That’s why I find it important to get involved in the local level as much as possible. That’s where you have to start to create real and effective change at the federal level.”McCambridge said she believes it’s important for women to get involved in politics. “Some say politics is a man’s world, but I kind of disagree,” she said. “Women just don’t get as much coverage [in the media], but we’re making progress.”In the future, McCambridge said she hopes to continue participating in the political process. “Now that I know how campaigns are run, I can definitely see myself running for office again,” she said. “We, as women, need to not be afraid of losing. Losing is part of life.”Tags: Board of Education, Michigan, Politicslast_img read more

Online labor demand dips 123,800 in April, Vermont up 800

first_imgOnline advertised vacancies slipped by 123,800 in April to 4,322,300 according to The Conference Board Help Wanted OnLine (HWOL) Data Series released today. The April decline follows a strong gain of 763,100 in the first quarter of 2011. Vermont was up 800.”Labor demand has risen to levels we last saw just before the official start of the recession four years ago,” said June Shelp, Vice President at The Conference Board. “At the same time, the number of unemployed has doubled and now stands at 13.5 million (March unemployment data), and some professions have clearly fared better than others in job opportunities. At this stage, there are occupations where the supply/demand rate has fallen significantly and there are two or less unemployed for every advertised vacancy. However, other occupations are still experiencing relatively high supply/demand rates above 4.0, reflecting the fact that there are over four unemployed for every advertised vacancy.” (See Occupational detail).REGIONAL AND STATE HIGHLIGHTSThe April dip in labor demand reflects declines in slightly less than half of the States (23) which more than offset gains in the other 27 StatesThe trend in labor demand turned up in 2011 in all of the 20 largest statesAmong the regions, the South declined 57,700 in April. In addition to Maryland (-23,200), Texas, Florida and Georgia were down 9,300, 8,500, and 7,300, respectively and Virginia was down 4,300. Partially offsetting these losses was a gain in North Carolina, up 3,500. In the first four months of 2011, labor demand in North Carolina has risen 25 percent. Among the less populous States in the South, Tennessee gained 800 and Oklahoma rose 1,200 to 46,100 online advertised vacancies in April. Alabama was up by 500, while South Carolina lost 1,700.In April, the Midwest held steady, with a slight dip of 700. Indiana, one of the smaller states in the region, posted the largest gain, up 3,400 to 70,300. Among the larger states, Wisconsin rose 2,000 and Missouri was up 1,200. States posting declines in April included Illinois, down 3,300 to 165,800 and Michigan, down 3,600. Ohio rose by 900 and has gained 36,500 (29 percent) in labor demand thus far in 2011. Among the States with smaller populations, Kansas increased by 1,400 and Iowa and Nebraska added 900 and 600, respectively.The West declined 47,400 this month with losses in some states offsetting gains in others. California had the largest loss with a decline of 36,700; Arizona posted the largest gain (up 1,500) in the region. Colorado and Washington declined 8,400 and 4,200, respectively, while Oregon was down 1,400 to 53,200. Utah declined by 1,600 but its overall increase this year is 6,200 (23 percent). Some of the less populous States posting increases are New Mexico and Idaho which rose 700 and 1,000, respectively.The Northeast was down by 36,000 in April. In addition to Massachusetts (down 11,500), Pennsylvania declined 8,200 and New York fell by 7,100. New Jersey posted the largest gain in the region with an increase of 3,900 to 144,100. Among the smaller States in New England, Connecticut fell by 11,300 while New Hampshire and Vermont were up by 1,600 and 800, respectively. Maine and Rhode Island remained virtually unchanged with slight gains of 200 each.The Supply/Demand rate for the U.S. in March (the latest month for which unemployment numbers are available) stands at 3.05, indicating that there are just over three unemployed workers for every online advertised vacancy. Nationally, there are 9.1 million more unemployed workers than advertised vacancies. In March, there were eight States where there were fewer than two unemployed for every advertised vacancy including North Dakota and Nebraska (Supply/Demand rates of 1.08 and 1.44 respectively) as well as Alaska and Maryland (both at 1.60), New Hampshire (1.68), South Dakota (1.75), Vermont (1.76) and Virginia (1.85). The State with the highest Supply/Demand rate is Mississippi (7.30), where there are more than 7 unemployed workers for every online advertised vacancy. There are a number of States in which there are over four unemployed for every advertised vacancy including Kentucky (5.45), Alabama (4.45), California (4.26), South Carolina (4.20), Florida (4.15), and Michigan (4.00).It should be noted that the Supply/Demand rate only provides a measure of relative tightness of the individual State labor markets and does not suggest that the occupations of the unemployed directly align with the occupations of the advertised vacancies (see Occupational Highlights section).OCCUPATIONAL HIGHLIGHTSThe recovery has been uneven across occupations although supply/demand rates have improved in all of the broad occupational categories since the height of the recessionComputer and mathematical science is the only broad occupational group where the number of advertised vacancies remained above the number of unemployed throughout the recessionSupply/Demand for Selected OccupationsThe recession and the current recovery have not treated all occupations equally. How hard, or easy, it is to find job opportunities vary by occupation. Supply/demand rates provide a measure of how many advertised vacancies there are relative to the number of unemployed workers seeking employment in these occupations. In other words, they are an indication of the relative tightness of the labor market for various professions. Some high wage, high-tech occupations that faired best during the recession (computer and mathematical science, and healthcare practitioners and technical workers, for example) are still proving to have the most favorable supply/demand rates.”While the number of ads relative to the number of unemployed in all of the major occupational categories deteriorated during the recession, for some relatively high-wage, high-tech categories there were always more advertised vacancies than unemployed looking for jobs,” said Shelp. For computer and math occupations, the number of vacancies for unemployed job seekers deteriorated from around nine openings to under two openings as the recession deepened. By last month (March’11) the number of advertised openings was back up to five for every unemployed.In contrast, in office and administrative work, and food preparation and service, the number of unemployed continues to exceed than the number of vacancies. In food prep and service, for example, there were almost eight unemployed for every advertised vacancy in March’11. “That is a significant improvement from the worst month (May’09) when there were 14 unemployed for every advertised vacancy,” said Shelp, “but not a great comfort to those workers still seeking jobs in this field.”Nationally, the supply/demand rate for all occupations in March’11 was 3.05, or three unemployed for every advertised opening. Job categories where there are relatively good opportunities (i.e., not more than two unemployed for every advertised vacancy) in addition to computer and math jobs, include occupations typically called high-tech ‘life, physical, and social sciences (1.0), architecture and engineering (0.8) ‘ as well as business and financial operations (1.4), management (1.5), and healthcare practitioners and technical (0.37) and healthcare support occupations (1.7).Occupations where there continue to be a large number of unemployed for every online advertised opening include construction and extraction (22 unemployed for every opening), production jobs (7.9), building and grounds work (11.1), food preparation and service related jobs (7.8), and personal care and service occupations (7.4). “There has been significant improvement in these occupations since the worst months of the recession, but we still have a long way to go to put all of these workers back into jobs,” Shelp noted.Changes for the Month of AprilAmong the top 10 occupation groups with the largest numbers of online advertised vacancies, categories posting increases included transportation and material moving, up 3,500 to 204,800 and installation, maintenance and repair, up 2,800. Construction and extraction jobs rose 1,200.Occupation that posted fewer vacancies in April included healthcare practitioners and technical occupations, down 28,600 to 568,500. This drop was led by declines in advertised vacancies for speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, and physical therapists. At the same time, healthcare support occupations fell by 11,400 to 129,100. Similar to the decline in healthcare practitioners and technical positions, there were declines in openings for physical therapist assistants and occupational therapist assistants.In April, office and administrative support vacancies decreased by 14,000 to 459,800. General office clerks, receptionists and information clerks were among the occupations which saw a decrease in advertised vacancies. In the first four months of 2011, office support occupations have gained 59,800. In spite of this increase, job opportunities still remain challenging in this occupational category with 3.45 unemployed workers for every advertised vacancy (March 2011 data, the latest available for unemployment).Food preparation and serving related positions slipped by 14,400 to 135,300 with a drop in demand for a variety of jobs including dishwashers, cooks for institutions and cafeterias, and food preparation workers. There are still almost eight unemployed workers (7.79) for every advertised vacancy (March data). The overall gain in this occupational category since the end of last year has been 25,900 (24 percent).METRO AREA HIGHLIGHTSWashington, D.C., Oklahoma City, Honolulu and Boston have the lowest Supply/Demand ratesIn April, all of the 52 metropolitan areas for which data are reported separately posted over-the-year increases in the number of online advertised vacancies. Among the three metro areas with the largest numbers of advertised vacancies, the New York metro area was 15.2 percent above its April 2010 level, the Los Angeles metro area was 13.8 percent above last year’s level, and the Washington, D.C. metro area was 5.2 percent above its April 2010 level.The number of unemployed exceeded the number of advertised vacancies in all of the 52 metro areas for which information is reported separately. Washington, DC continues to have the most favorable Supply/Demand rate (1.17) with about one advertised vacancy for every unemployed worker. Oklahoma City, Honolulu, Boston, Baltimore and Minneapolis were metropolitan locations where there were just under two unemployed looking for work for every advertised vacancy. On the other hand, metro areas in which the respective number of unemployed is substantially above the number of online advertised vacancies include Riverside, CA ‘ where there are over nine unemployed people for every advertised vacancy (9.07) ‘ Sacramento (5.73), Miami (4.96), and Los Angeles (4.42). Supply/Demand rate data are for March 2011, the latest month for which unemployment data for local areas are available.PROGRAM NOTESNote: The full HWOL time series from May 2005 forward is now available; the initial release of the HWOL annual series revision in January 2011 had been limited to time series data from January 2007 forward. The current April release also includes updated seasonally adjusted data along with a correction for a processing error affecting the November 2009 through January 2011 levels, but the trends for this time period have remained essentially unchanged.The Conference Board Help Wanted OnLineâ ¢ Data Series measures the number of new, first-time online jobs and jobs reposted from the previous month on more than 1,200 major Internet job sites and smaller job sites that serve niche markets and smaller geographic areas.Like The Conference Board’s long-running Help Wanted Advertising Index of print ads (which was published for over 55 years and discontinued in October 2008 but continues to be available for research), the new online series is not a direct measure of job vacancies. The level of ads in print and online can change for reasons not related to overall job demand.With the December 1, 2008 release, HWOL began providing seasonally adjusted data for the U.S., the nine Census regions and the 50 States. Seasonally adjusted data for occupations were provided beginning with the December 2009 release. This data series, for which the earliest data are for May 2005, continues to publish not seasonally adjusted data for 52 large metropolitan areas.People using this data are urged to review the information on the database and methodology available on The Conference Board website and contact us with questions and comments.

The 5 types of data analysis every credit union marketer should know

13SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr The old saying “a picture is worth a thousand words” is no less true today than it was decades ago, even though that simple picture has been replaced by myriad types of imagery. Humans are visual creatures, and many of us just absorb and understand information better when we receive data visually/graphically. That’s the fundamental premise that helps make data modeling so very useful for financial marketers.Data modeling works because it is a visual representation of quantitative data that we can use to identify, analyze, and exploit interactions between data profiles. It allows us to compare and analyze sets of data, identify correlations and make educated interpretations and predictive assumptions — all capabilities that are particularly useful in customer acquisition.In our new whitepaper, Supporting Customer Acquisition Through Data Modeling, we explain in more detail how to use data modeling to achieve marketing objectives like customer acquisition. Many of the subject areas we touch on are worth a deeper dive, so let’s take a look at how data analysis works in relation to data modeling. continue reading » read more

UK roundup: TPR pipes up over inter-DC transfers; ‘Cross-country’ PRT deal

first_imgThe Pensions Regulator (TPR) has updated its COVID-19-related guidance to tell trustees they must continue to prioritise transfers between defined contribution (DC) schemes during the pandemic and stay alert to scams.At the end of March trustees of defined benefit (DB) schemes were told they could delay new member requests for quotations for transfers to DC schemes by up to three months to review their transfer basis, but TPR today said “this is not the case for transfers between DC schemes where the valuation of benefits is less complex”.David Fairs, TPR’s executive director of policy, said: “Our latest guidance should help trustees of DC schemes prioritise what’s most important – such as ensuring DC to DC transfers are completed in a reasonable time, so savers don’t lose out.“As well as carrying out their due diligence on transfers, trustees should help protect members by highlighting the risk from scammers in their own communications,” he added. Last month TPR published guidance asking trustees to write to DB members looking to move retirement funds to warn them of the risks during the pandemic and urging them to consider their decisions carefully.IHS Markit syncs UK, US pension risk transferLegal & General has simultaneously agreed pension risk transfer transactions for IHS Markit US and UK pension plans, the first time the insurer struck a “cross-country” deal.The UK transaction was for £37.8m (€42m) and covered around 150 members in the IHS (Global) Ltd. Pension and Life Assurance Scheme. The US transaction was for $97.2m, covering around 1,200 members in the IHS Retirement Income Plan.Stafford Napier, chair of the UK plan trustees, said: “This transaction is a key step in our plans to de-risk the provision of pension benefits for our members in the UK. We had been discussing the opportunities for de-risking with our sponsoring employer for a number of years.“With the support of the company, our advisers and Legal & General we were able to complete the transaction efficiently and on time even in the face of the challenging financial circumstances surrounding the coronavirus emergency.”Recent market volatility, in particular wider credit spreads, has however led to some attractive pricing in the UK bulk annuity market.“We would anticipate a global approach to de-risking being one of the key levers that sponsors with UK and US obligations look to utilise going forwards.”Greg Robertson, transactions specialist at Willis Towers WatsonGreg Robertson, transactions specialist at Willis Towers Watson, which advised on both deals, said the co-ordinated transaction “further demonstrates the value of innovation in the bulk annuity market.“With demand for transactions still high, it remains important for schemes to differentiate themselves in order to maximise insurer engagement and to secure attractive pricing.“One of those differentiators might now be a global approach to de-risking. We would anticipate this being one of the key levers that sponsors with UK and US obligations look to utilise going forwards.”IHS Markit is a global provider of research, market intelligence and analysis. L&G noted that it has been a client of its asset manager LGIM for more than 15 years.Pace de-risks again with AvivaPace, the Co-operative Pension Scheme, has insured the defined benefit liabilities of an additional 2,300 members after striking a £350m buy-in with Aviva.The deal was completed using a pre-agreed “umbrella contract”, and comes on top of £1bn deal between the two parties announced in January. The Pace pension fund has also struck a £1bn buy-in with the Pension Insurance Corporation.The process to select an insurer, in this case Aviva, and negotiate terms was led by Aon on behalf of the trustee. Legal advice was provided by Linklaters and investment advice by Mercer.Chris Martin, of Independent Trustee Services Limited and Pace trustee chair, said: “The trustee board is delighted to have been able to take this further step in enhancing the security of our members’ benefits.“The ability to transact this quickly and efficiently is testament to all of the hard work from our colleagues in the Co-op Pensions Department in getting Pace to a position where such security enhancing options are possible. Thanks also go to all of our advisers for their work in exceptionally challenging circumstances in making this outcome possible”.Tom Scott, principal consultant in Aon’s risk settlement group, said: “By leveraging the previous buy-in transaction with Aviva, we were able to capture a short-term pricing opportunity on behalf of the trustee.“Swift execution was required in the circumstances, which was made possible by the scheme being well-prepared and having efficient and nimble governance processes in place.”Looking for IPE’s latest magazine?

Man Utd suffer transfer blow as Everton ace pens new five-year contract
