After all, there are many things that can go wrong, but typically, and thankfully, the majority of these problems go unnoticed by members. CU personnel and core partners can correct most issues before the members are affected. However, there is one thing that you can’t flub when performing a core conversion… member facing applications, namely, credit union mobile banking.Your mobile banking app is increasingly the primary avenue that members interact with your CU. In 2016, according to creditunions.com, 48.4% of the 108 million credit union members used their provider’s mobile banking app or transactional website. What about that coveted millennial market? According to recent studies, Nearly 70% use mobile banking, and 31% use it as their primary interface, nearly double any other channel of banking access. While crossing the T’s and dotting the I’s on the back end of your core conversion, it’s imperative to keep member experience first, and to ensure this interface continues to operate seamlessly. What may seem like minor annoyances can turn into major headaches for members:Login – Mobile banking for most members has become a seamless process. If your credit union is doing it correctly, members can easily login and access their financial information instantly. If a problem occurs on the mobile banking end of a core conversion, members may be restricted to login to their mobile app, which is anything but seamless. Members expect painless banking and if they’re met with an error page when trying to login they’re sure to worry about the assets they’ve left under your credit union’s care. continue reading »
President Donald Trump appeared on Saturday for the first time publicly wearing a mask, as more than 66,000 new cases were recorded in the United States, according to the Johns Hopkins University, a new daily record.Latin America and the Caribbean is the region where the disease is surging the most, with more than 76,000 new cases registered on July 11 (compared with just over 70,000 in the United States and Canada, nearly 40,000 in Asia, 17,500 in Africa and 16,000 in Europe).On Friday, the World Health Organization said it was “still” possible to control the situation if “rapid action” was taken to deal with outbreaks.The number of diagnosed cases still reflects only a fraction of the actual number of infections. Some countries test only severe cases, others use them primarily for tracing, and many poor countries have limited testing capacity. The coronavirus pandemic, which has killed more than 565,000 people out of nearly 13 million registered cases worldwide, has been accelerating sharply since the start of July, according to a count carried out by AFP from official sources.The three biggest daily worldwide increases in new cases were seen on Saturday (more than 230,000), Friday (more than 225,000) and Thursday (nearly 220,000).Since July 1, nearly 2.5 million new cases have been officially declared, a record level since the outbreak was first reported in China in December. Topics : The number of declared cases worldwide has doubled in just a month and a half.The United States (3,247,782 cases), Brazil (1,839,850), India (849,553), Russia (727,162) and Peru (322,710) account for more than half of the global total.Worldwide, a total of at least 12,736,737 infections, including 565,151 deaths, have been recorded.Europe is the most affected continent in terms of fatalities, with 202,396 out of 3,355,128 cases while the hardest-hit country the United States has registered 134,815 deaths.
While the Cleveland Indians won’t get to see Ohtani pitch in this three-game series, they could see him hit as soon as Tuesday, although Scioscia wouldn’t commit to that either.Cleveland manager Terry Francona got a good look at Ohtani in 2014, when he managed a team of major leaguers on an offseason trip to Japan. Ohtani, who was 20 at the time, pitched a perfect inning in Game 1 of the series.Could Francona envision Ohtani pitching in MLB by age 23?“I think you could have envisioned him pitching (in MLB) the next week,” he said. “He looked good. He looked real good.”HEANEY UPDATEAndrew Heaney is scheduled to throw 80-90 pitches in a minor league game on Friday, Scioscia said. Heaney, who is out with elbow inflammation, said he felt good a day after a 69-pitch outing in an intrasquad game in Arizona.If Heaney comes through his minor league outing without any problems, he would be able to start by the time the Angels need a sixth starter, which would be during the series starting April 12 in Kansas City.UP NEXTAngels (Garrett Richards, 0-0, 7.20) vs. Indians (Josh Tomlin, 10-9, 4.98 in 2017), 7 p.m., Fox Sports West, KLAA (830 AM).Staff writer J.P. Hoornstra contributed to this story. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error ANAHEIM — A day after Shohei Ohtani’s major league pitching debut, the Angels still weren’t saying when, or if, he will pitch on this homestand.The Angels could have Ohtani pitch Saturday on five days rest or Sunday on six days rest.Ohtani has pitched on at least six days rest every time except once, following a 31-pitch outing in the spring, so it stands to reason that he’s more likely to pitch on Sunday. He threw 92 pitches against the Oakland A’s on Sunday.Manager Mike Scioscia said the Angels on Wednesday would announce their rotation for this weekend’s series against Oakland.
A South Florida commissioner shocked his colleagues and others attending an awards ceremony during Wednesday’s commission meeting.Tamarac Mayor Michelle Gomez and the city’s leadership were handing out Officer of the Month awards and posing for photos with the recognized officers.Afterward, Commissioner Mike Gelin took the microphone from Gomez and asked Broward Sheriff’s Deputy Joshua Gallardo to return to the front of the room.Gelin then criticized Gallardo over what he believed was his false arrest by the officer in 2015, stating, “You probably don’t remember me, but you’re the police officer who falsely arrested me four years ago. You lied on the police report. I believe you’re a rogue police officer. You’re a bad police officer, and you don’t deserve to be here.”Gallardo responded by smiling and walking away.Gomez told reporters afterward, “Completely shocked. This was not something we were expecting. It was supposed to be a wonderful morning. We were giving the awards for the BSO deputies of the month. It was supposed to be a feel-good time.”She took the microphone back from Gelin and expressed support for the officers in attendance and all those who protect our region.According to the website LawEnforcementToday.com, Gallardo took Gelin into custody for resisting arrest without violence in 2014, after Gelin refused to stay away from a scene in which a man had been found beaten.The district attorney chose not to move forward with case, and all of the charges were eventually dropped.“When I shared my video with the state attorney’s office to prove that I did nothing wrong, they declined to file charges against me,” Gelin says. “I had a productive conversation with the Sheriff yesterday and I will try to resolve things and move forward.”Gallardo was being honored at the meeting for his role in the April arrest of a gang member who was wanted for murder in El Salvador and was in the U.S. illegally.
