As new credit union directors settle into their roles and responsibilities, they can offer valuable views on several persistent challenges facing many boards, which may be informed by their own experiences being recruited and trained for board service.Stagnation and Demographic HomogeneityCredit unions have more long-tenured board members than other business sectors, which increases the likelihood of a default toward the status quo, suggests Matt Fullbrook, manager of the David & Sharon Johnston Centre for Corporate Governance Innovation at the Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto. Fullbrook is also and faculty at CUES Governance Leadership Institute™ at Rotman. And especially for historically SEG-based credit unions, board membership may skew toward people from the same or similar professions.“People who are familiar with each other and used to interacting tend to be much less likely to challenge each other and to step outside what they’re used to in recruiting new directors,” he says. “There’s a huge amount of both scientific and anecdotal evidence suggesting that diverse perspectives dramatically enhance the ability of groups to make good decisions. They’re more willing to challenge each other. They bring diverse perspectives to what might seem like a mundane question or decision, which may raise new opportunities.” continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
Work on the runway of Dubrovnik Airport, which is currently the largest construction site in the Republic of Croatia, according to plan, began these days and will last until March 15, 2019, when Dubrovnik Airport should be fully ready for the new tourist season and even better reception of passengers, and also for even better air connections between Dubrovnik and Zagreb, on which the local population depends. During the execution of works, regular winter traffic will take place with minor restrictions, and you can see the traffic schedule HERE.Temporary traffic regulationFor the purpose of performing works at the airport, they also mean a new, ie temporary traffic regulation. The main entrance to the airport for all vehicles will be on the east side (current entrance for cargo and administration building). During the works, the parking lot at the airport will be free, ie without parking fees.These works will require constant adjustments and will directly affect the restrictions, which will have to be introduced in the flight schedule.Aware of the needs of passengers, Dubrovnik Airport has limited these works to the minimum necessary period, specifically to the period from November 8 to December 9 this year, in which certain types of aircraft will not be able to operate at night. As they point out from Croatia Airlines (CA), adhering to the protocol agreed with Dubrovnik Airport, and in order to transport as many passengers as possible, CA as the Croatian national airline will ensure daily connections between Zagreb and Dubrovnik, implementing a reduced flight schedule. Following the above, and having in mind the realistic flight limitations and always guided by the principle of passenger safety, the reduced flight schedule will be subject to change, depending on daily operating or weather conditions, as well as the stage of work. It should be emphasized that Croatia Airlines, instead of canceling flights, will perform special preparations with crews in the specified period in order to perform flight operations completely safely and despite all restrictions caused by works in ZL Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik Airport and Croatia Airlines will strive to less likely to affect passengers, who will jointly, with the maximum engagement of all capacities, inform about all the necessary changes. To all passengers who bought tickets for evening flights at a time when all the restrictions related to the mentioned works were not yet known, Croatia Airlines will offer a transport service in alternative terms and try to find an acceptable solution and justify their expectations. “Dubrovnik Airport and Croatia Airlines apologize to all service users for possible inconveniences and thank you very much for your patience and understanding given the great complexity of the project for the reconstruction of the maneuvering areas of Dubrovnik Airport.”Conclude Croatia Airlines.RELATED NEWS:FROM 2019 DIRECT FLIGHTS FROM DUBROVNIK TO THE USADEVELOPMENT OF DUBROVNIK AIRPORT IN WINTER SEASON 2018/2019 In the coming winter, Dubrovnik Airport continues the implementation of the Project “Development of Dubrovnik Airport” co-financed by the European Union, through the Operational Program Competitiveness and Cohesion. The most sensitive part of the Project is the reconstruction of the runway, which according to the dynamic plan of works will continue in early November 2018. This reconstruction began last year and was completed in the length of 1200m.The ZLD Development project during the winter season (October 28, 2018 – March 30, 2019) will take place in three phases:• Phase 1 (beginning of November – mid-November): during this period, reconstruction works on the USS will begin, due to which the USS will be limited in force, the length of which will then be 1425m for landing and 1575m for take-off;• Phase 2 (late November – early December): during this period, work on the USS will continue, while the restrictions will be slightly different from Phase 1. The length of the USS for landing will be 1425m while for takeoff it will be available 1515m;• Phase 3 (December 2018 – March 2019): during this period, works on the USS will be carried out, but the limitations of the USS will be significantly lower compared to Phases 1 and 2.

Marketers in Liberia have been urged to be steadfast and step up to the plate in boosting the economy in the awake of the prevailing Ebola crisis affecting the sub-region.Making the plea for marketers, particularly women, Charles Naiwah, program manager of Foundation for Women (FFW), urged marketers to rise up above the deadly foe of Ebola and properly manage the business sector for the development of their nation. Addressing the marketers yesterday, he encouraged Liberian women to be courageous in these trying times of the national economy, adding; “Don’t let Ebola put you out of business.“Let’s be serious in the fight against this virus in order to make our businesses stronger,” the FFW manager indicated.Relative to the fight against the deadly Ebola virus, the micro-finance organization called on residents of Liberia, particularly market women, to understand the fact that “Ebola is real and has no remedy, but early treatment can reduce the risk of death. Don’t hide any sick or dead person, he admonished, urging them to report to the health authorities anything that looks like the virus.”Control the children who remain at home to avoid coming in contact with strangers.”It’s better to be selfish and remain alive than to be generous and get killed at the hands of Ebola. That is why we have come to identify with you people in these communities today.”We’re partners; so Ebola will not make us fall apart. Our partners met and raised some resources to procure awareness materials and preventive gears for you in order to contain the spread of the virus. We will not sit back and allow our members to fight the virus alone. We are with you every step of the way. We want our borrowers to fight the disease face-to-face in an effort to kick the virus out of Liberia,” Naiwah asserted.FFW made the call when the local organization that is operating in 14 of Liberia’s 15 political subdivisions presented scores of anti-Ebola materials for 37 market women from three communities. The micro finance organization described the donation as “arms and ammunitions in the combat against Ebola.”Receiving the items on behalf of the three groups, leaders of the market women expressed their appreciation to the FFW family for the gesture.In separate statements, Madams Vera Tweh of Airfield, Emma Ricks of Catholic Junction and Marlyn Davis of Old Road Communities described the donations as “a positive step in battling the deadly Ebola virus.””A friend in bad times is truly a real friend indeed,” Madam Davis said.She pledged her women’s organization’s fullest corporation in the national fight against Ebola, pledging, “The materials will be used for the intended purpose.” Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
12 July 2012South African business confidence improved in June following the dip in May, the SA Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Sacci) reported on Wednesday, while cautioning that the uncertain global situation would test the recovery going forward.Sacci’s Business Confidence Index (BCI) improved by 2.1 points to 94.9 in June.“A substantial annual gap in the BCI of 8.4 points developed between May 2011 and May 2012, but narrowed to 7.5 points between June 2011 and June 2012,” Sacci said in a statement.The dip in the Business Confidence Index (BCI) in May 2012 was followed by notable improvements in the sub-indices in June 2012. While only two of the 13 sub-indices of the BCI were positive on a month-on-month basis in May, eight sub-indices turned positive, with one remaining unchanged in June 2012.The majority of the sub-indices in both the financial and real economic divisions of the BCI were positive in June.“The annual comparison of the sub-indices was less convincing, where five of the 13 sub-indices improved in June 2012 and one remained unchanged,” Sacci said.“The financial environment was less supportive of a positive business mood than a year ago, while there were signs that the real economic environment may have consolidated.”Although the improvement in business confidence is important, the recovery of the BCI in June may still be tested given the uncertain global economic situation.Sacci said the need for market-driven private sector fixed investment from local as well as foreign investors remained vital.“Although business confidence has strayed from its current downward trend originating in March 2012, the promotion of a domestic environment that is nurturing to the supply-side of the economy could cause a more lasting directional change in business confidence,” the chamber said.Source: SANews.gov.za

Farmers can potentially run out of operating credit before harvest and have to pass up a good opportunity because they don’t have cash or credit available. So, how can producers plan ahead for equipment purchases instead?“It’s best to plan out machinery purchases well in advance and secure sufficient financing for those purchases to avoid losing money because of financing costs, said Vince Bailey, Senior Vice President of Ag Underwriting with Farm Credit Mid- America. “Farmers can also consider a lease that offers a lower annual payment, combined with a limited down payment requiring less cash up front.”Bailey says that operating lines of credit are designed to accommodate short-term purchases like input costs and therefore have a higher interest rate and that paying a percentage point higher to finance a long-term purchase can have unforeseen long- term costs.For more financial tips, insights and perspectives from Farm Credit Mid-America visit e-farmcredit.com/insights.AUDIO: The Ohio Ag Net’s Ty Higgins visits with Farm Credit Mid-America’s Vince Bailey about planning for an equipment purchase.FCMA Vince Bailey 8.21.17
Choosing the right lenses for your video production can make or break your project. This round-up of EF lenses can help you prepare for your next shoot.Before I show up on set, I take several preparatory steps to ensure that I can capture everything the client needs. It starts by asking myself what I am filming. This determines which lenses I should use, and what additional equipment I’ll need.Next I ask myself how much time I have so I’ll know how quickly I have to move on set. If the timeframe is narrow, for example, I may bring zoom lenses to speed up my workflow. If, however, I have plenty of time, I can use prime lenses to get some truly great images.Zoom EF LensesHere are my go to EF zoom lenses.Canon EF 24-70mm 2.8This is my favorite medium zoom lens. It allows you, with a single lens, to grab some great wide shots, and get close to your subject. Something to keep in mind, however, is that when you zoom, the front of the lens protrudes outwards. This doesn’t bother me, but if you are using a matte box, it can create problems.Canon EF 16-35mm 2.8This is my go-to wide angle lens. I absolutely love how wide an image this lens can produce. It can also zoom to a 35mm to help grab some interesting medium-closeup shots. The front of the lens does not change when you zoom from a 16mm to a 35mm.Canon EF 70-200mm 2.8This is my all-time favorite zoom lens. The Canon 70-200mm gives you a ton of composition options in a pinch. This lens also has a built-in image stabilizer, which allows you to capture handheld shots if you need to.Prime EF LensesHere are a few prime lenses that I prefer to use if I have a bit more control over the production. These lenses can capture an amazingly sharp image, with a beautiful bokeh. Keep in mind that prime lenses require you to change lenses if you’d like a wider or tighter shot. Canon EF 85mm 1.8The Canon 85mm is a beautiful lens. The background just fades away from what’s in focus. I love using this lens for interviews and close-ups.Zeiss EF 100mm F2 MacroThe Zeiss EF 100mm Macro lens lets you get extremely close to the action. I typically use this lens for product shots and extreme close-ups.Canon EF 50mm F1.8The Nifty Fifty! This lens is a must-have! It’s one of the least expensive Canon lenses, but it can produce some gorgeous images. The 1.8 Aperture makes this an amazing low-light lens, if you are hurting for light at a shoot.Rokinon EF 14mm T3.1 CineThis is a great lightweight wide angle lens. I typically use this when filming on a Ronin or Steadicam. The de-clicked aperture allows you to adjust the exposure on the fly.Bonus: PL Cinema PrimesIf I’m not shooting with EF lenses and have complete control over a set, I prefer to use my Sony CineAlta 4K PL Cinema Prime lens kit. These lenses are about six pounds each, so it’s not easy to move quickly with them. All six lenses have the same size and weight, so when you change your lenses, you don’t have to reposition your lens support and matte box.These lenses are very durable with full metal construction. They also have focus distances, so you can be confident with your focus pulls.These are just some of my preferences when choosing lenses. There is no right or wrong choice — it simply comes down to what works best for you. The most important thing to remember is that lenses are tools. You need to make sure that you bring, rent, or own the right tools for the job.What lens combinations do you prefer to shoot with? Let us know in the comments.
