Heck, just about any business is these days. But credit unions especially have been cutting it close to the bone when it comes to revenue and expenses because, well, they’re there to help the people, not make a ton of money — and that’s just cool.But any extra cash from a new revenue stream allows a credit union to reinvest in new services and technologies that will make them more valuable. Along comes a new CUSO called Alliance LLC that is doing just that. It essentially pays your credit union to process your mortgage loans. Sounds pretty sweet. Well, we invited Alliance’s CEO Mike Steuer on the program to get to the bottom of this dividend model that benefits all parties involved. Check it out and let us know what you think.Visit: www.alliance-llc.com continue reading »

Liverpool need just two more wins to claim their first English championship in 30 years.But the pandemic has seen the season suspended since March 13 with no certainty over whether it can resume and if all the remaining 92 games can be played if the campaign gets underway again. Liverpool have halted their planned redevelopment of a stand at Anfield for a year in response to the coronavirus crisis.The Premier League leaders said Monday the pandemic had seen them call a halt to work on the Anfield Road stand that will increase the capacity of the ground to 61,000.Liverpool had hoped to have the work finished in 2022 but the project won’t now be completed until 2023 at the earliest. “We have experienced a number of delays to the planned project as a direct result of the COVID-19 lockdown,” Liverpool chief operating officer Andy Hughes told the club’s website.”Given the challenges that many sectors are facing right now, including the construction, procurement and public sectors, we are taking a responsible approach to pause the project for at least 12 months.”The complex build program for Anfield Road is an 18-month process and needs two clear summer closed season windows in order for it to be successful.”This is why we are pausing on the project for at least 12 months so the earliest we could complete the program is summer 2023 rather than summer 2022 as originally planned.” Topics :
HealthLifestyle Paracetamol warning: ‘Slightly too much can cause overdose’ by: – November 23, 2011 Taking slightly more than is recommended can cause significant damage over timeTaking slightly too much paracetamol day after day can be fatal, experts have warned.A dangerous dose might just be a few pills too many taken regularly over days, weeks or months, they said.Researchers at Edinburgh University saw 161 cases of “staggered overdose” at its hospital over a six-year period.People taking tablets for chronic pain might not realise they were taking too many or recognise symptoms of overdose and liver injury, they said.The researchers told the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology that this life-threatening condition could be easily missed by doctors and patients.Doctors may not initially spot the problem because blood tests will not show the staggeringly high levels of paracetamol seen with a conventional overdose, where someone may have swallowed several packets of the drug.Patients who have taken a staggered overdose tend to fare worse than those who have taken a large overdose, the study suggests.Dr Kenneth Simpson and colleagues looked at the medical records of 663 patients who had been referred with paracetamol-induced liver injury to the Scottish Liver Transplantation Unit at the university hospital.The 161 who had taken a staggered overdose were more likely to develop liver and brain problems and need kidney dialysis or help with their breathing. They were also more likely to die of their complications.Dr Simpson said: “They haven’t taken the sort of single-moment, one-off massive overdoses taken by people who try to commit suicide, but over time the damage builds up, and the effect can be fatal.”Professor Roger Knaggs of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society said patients should heed the warning.“If people experience pain and paracetamol doesn’t help, rather than thinking a ‘top up’ dose may work, they should consult their pharmacist for alternative pain control or referral to someone who can help with the cause of the pain. “The message is clear: if you take more paracetamol than is recommended, you won’t improve your pain control but you may seriously damage your health. “At this time of year people should also take care with combination cold and flu products which may have paracetamol as one of the ingredients. It’s easy to take more than intended, so if in doubt consult your pharmacist.”Meanwhile, researchers at King’s College London and Lund University in Sweden say they have discovered precisely how paracetamol works in the body. It is via a protein on nerve cells called TRPA1, says Nature Communications.Now that they understand this principal mechanism, scientists can start to look for molecules that work in the same way to effectively relieve pain, but are less toxic and will not lead to serious complications following overdose.By Michelle RobertsHealth reporter, BBC News 24 Views no discussions Sharing is caring!

Martha J. Hammerle, age 80 of Batesville, died Monday, February 1, 2016 at St. Andrew’s Health Campus. Born October 17, 1935 in Richmond, Indiana, she is the daughter of Irene (Nee: Baumer) and Joseph Vogelgesang. She married William Hammerle July 2, 1966 in Richmond and he preceded her in death in April of 1982. A member of St. Louis Church and the Knights of St. John’s Ladies Auxiliary, Martha spent 40 years as the bookkeeper for Hirt & Ellco and the last 12 years with Eckstein Heating and Cooling.Limited mobility didn’t stop Martha from enjoying many hobbies. An avid I.U. basketball, Colts and Reds fan, she was also fond of occasional trips to the casino and a regular at Thursday night bingo at St. Louis until recent years. Other interests included romance novels, jigsaw puzzles and movies on the Hallmark Channel. Apparently Martha was also extremely competitive and very fond of Yahtzee, along with her neighbors. Games were weekly and phone calls during that time were met with “not now” and a click. By not winning, you could expect to have “loser” taped to your mailbox. According to the kids, mom wasn’t the greatest cook, but were quick to point out that no known cases of food poisoning have been reported. What was most important to Martha was family. She dearly loved having her grandchildren around and was also very close to her nieces and nephews.She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law JoLynn and Joe Eckstein of St. Leon, Indiana; son and daughter-in-law John and Patti Hammerle of Brownsburg, Indiana; brothers Jim Vogelgesang of Richmond, Indiana, Don Vogelgesang of St. Augustine, Florida and five grandchildren. In addition to her husband an parents, she is also preceded in death by her sister Ruth Vogelgesang.Visitation is Thursday, February 4th, from 4 – 7 p.m. at the Weigel Funeral Home. Funeral services are 10 a.m. Friday, February 5th, at St. Louis Church with Rev. Alan Hirt O.F.M. officiating. Burial will follow in the church cemetery. The family requests memorials to Margaret Mary Health Foundation Hospice.

Reports claim the Foxes squad is set to bank £5million after keeping them in the Barclays Premier League. They beat the drop against the odds by winning six of their last eight games ahead of Sunday’s finale at home to QPR. The Foxes spent 140 days at the foot of the table this season and have become just the third side in the league’s history to survive after being bottom at Christmas. And Pearson believes they have earned their reward after producing a stunning comeback. “We have to be careful when we talk about bonuses. Any bonus scheme going to be paid to players is agreed before the season starts,” he said. “We have owners who are very generous but anything bonus-related is already set aside and nothing else needs to be spoken about. “I find it quite irritating that people want to go down that route. “I find it a bit distasteful. Different things motivate different people but it’s a bit of a cheap shot when stories are surfacing about how much Premier League survival is worth. “In my experience of working with players that’s maybe somewhere in their minds. “But I don’t at all feel like I’ve been working with a group of mercenaries. It does surface from time to time. Boss Nigel Pearson insists his Leicester players deserve every penny of their survival bonus. “To make things clear the bonus scheme in place is like any other one. “I’m aware that something is out there and it is a bit disappointing. “Whatever they get they deserve in my opinion. I don’t know what it is to be honest with you.” David Nugent is out with a calf injury while Danny Simpson will not be considered while the club examine his case following his conviction for assault this week. Leicester could finish 14th after a turbulent season which has seen Pearson in the spotlight for rows with journalists and a bizarre touchline confrontation with Crystal Palace’s James McArthur. In February there were widespread reports he had been sacked before Leicester backed him and Pearson admits he is already moving on from this season. “I’ve enjoyed bits of it. I find it hard to enjoy and I do get a bit annoyed with myself that I can’t enjoy the good moments always,” he said. “I’m already thinking about the next stage. I’ve not really had the chance to reflect because we’re still in the season. “That reflective process takes place in its own time. We have made some key improvements, quite remarkable adjustments.” Press Association
The creators of WhatsApp have released an update after finding a security flaw in their software that would allow hackers access to customer phones.The company reported Monday that hackers could implant malicious code on to a victim’s phone by placing a voice call to the victim on WhatsApp.“The attack has all the hallmarks of a private company reportedly that works with governments to deliver spyware that takes over the functions of mobile phone operating systems,” a WhatsApp spokesperson said in a statement.While WhatsApp did not name the private company behind the code, an insider told reporters that the company behind the code is NSO Group, an Israeli cyber company that has developed the malware designed to spy on its victims through their phone.Representatives with NSO have since released a statement to CNN stating that they are not using their product to spy on customers, instead they have released it to government agencies with the intention of fighting crime. They also mentioned that they do not control what the agencies choose to do with the software:“Under no circumstances would NSO be involved in the operating or identifying of targets of its technology, which is solely operated by intelligence and law enforcement agencies.”“Those agencies determine how the technology is used without any involvement from the company,” they continued.The makers of the app are now urging users to update WhatsApp on their devices which will eliminate the vulnerability in its system.The app can be updated through your devices App or Play Store.Read more here.
