Why you might need an overlap letter to expand

first_imgWhen considering a field of membership expansion, you may run into an overlap with another credit union’s field of membership. Depending upon your charter type, you may need to submit an overlap letter to the NCUA.Overlaps are permitted when the expansion’s beneficial impact on the convenience and needs of the proposed group outweighs any adverse effect on the overlapped credit union.The NCUA rules vary for different charter types and bonds. See how an overlap letter might affect your specific charter type:Community Charter: If you are a community credit union you are in luck! The NCUA  permits community credit unions to overlap any other charters without performing an overlap analysis. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Gold Coast real estate: why the Hinterland is so popular

first_img22-30 Eagles Retreat Place, Tamborine Mountain.A SPRAWLING Tamborine Mountain estate on the market for almost two years has finally sold for $2.25 million to a Brisbane-based family.Eagles Retreat, complete with a helicopter pad and giant chess set, first hit the market in November 2016 and was taken to auction twice through Ray White Prestige Gold Coast. The luxury four-bedroom house at 22-30 Eagles Retreat Place, was designed and built by Brett and Denise McMahon in 2008 after they were drawn to the panoramic view of the Coast.“They are comparable with those of the (Sydney) Harbour Bridge from our last home in Point Piper, Sydney” Mr McMahon told the Gold Coast Bulletin when it first hit the market.“It is a uniquely elegant, private getaway, yet a walk to terrific restaurants, shops and cafes.“It’s close to everything, designed for the owners, family and friends to enjoy a world-class entertainer’s home with stunning, panoramic views.”Property records reveal the pair paid $265,000 for the 1.04ha parcel of land in 2003.Inside the house, the ‘great room’ as it is affectionately called by the McMahons, is the heart of the house — it combines a dining, lounge, snooker table and games area that flows out to the terrace.

In the end, Josh Thomas of Ray White Prestige, managed to secure a buyer for property, dubbed Tamborine Mountain’s “most luxurious home”.“There had been consistent interest in the property since it hit the market,” Mr Thomas said.“It’s a very unique opportunity with a bespoke design so it was always going to attract a particular market.“There were multiple offers on it during the campaigns we have had on it.” 22-30 Eagles Retreat Place, Tamborine Mountain offers a panoramic view of the Gold Coast. Fancy a game of pool? A 13m lap pool, outdoor spa and underfloor heating are among the property’s luxury features.Mr Thomas said the sale was bittersweet for the ­owners. “I think they were very attached to the property because the design was personal to them,” he said.“Like any property you build and design from scratch, selling is going to be a bittersweet undertaking but at the end of the day their goal was to sell it.”He said the Hinterland property market was going from strength to strength.“People are waking up to the knowledge that you can have quite a lot of acreage at an affordable price and still be half an hour to the beach” he said. “It’s a fantastic lifestyle to have.”Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:58Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:58 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels720p720pHD576p576p360p360p216p216pAutoA, selectedAudio Tracken (Main), selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Three Brazil goals disallowed in draw with Venezuela

first_imgBy Richard MartinSALVADOR, Brazil (Reuters) – Copa America hosts Brazil had three goals ruled out and missed a series of chances, as they were held 0-0 by Group A rivals Venezuela on Tuesday.Roberto Firmino had a goal chalked off late in the first half after the referee awarded a foul against the hosts, before substitute Gabriel Jesus found the net on the hour mark only for a Video Assistant Referee (VAR) review to deem Firmino offside in the build-up.Philippe Coutinho looked to have finally found the winner when he netted from close range but VAR intervened again.Brazil lead the group on four points ahead of Peru, who beat Bolivia 3-1 earlier in the day and also have four points.Brazil meet Peru in their final group game on Saturday with both sides needing only a draw to seal their place in the quarter-finals. Venezuela have two points while Bolivia are without a point, with the two facing each other on Saturday.The top two in each group are guaranteed a place in the last eight, along with the two highest-ranked teams finishing third.Brazil made a brighter start than in their 3-0 win over Bolivia in the tournament curtain-raiser but failed to take their chances as David Neres and Firmino missed the target and Richarlison was thwarted by Venezuela goalkeeper Wuilker Farinez.Venezuela tightened things up at the back and nearly took a surprise lead when all-time top scorer Salomon Rondon narrowly missed the target with a near-post header.Richarlison was taken off at halftime and replaced by Manchester City striker Jesus, who instantly livened up Brazil’s attack but failed to help provide a goal.The final whistle was greeted by loud boos from the unimpressed 39 000 supporters at the Arena Fonte Nova, the hosts again failing to attract a full house after underselling the opener, with over 10 000 seats left empty this time.last_img read more

Why Barcelona and Messi might be heading for a convenient divorce

first_imgBarcelona might well be a club on the brink of institutional crisis.There are problems in La Masia where the production line is malfunctioning. The style of play in the first team under Luis Enrique betrays the principles that brought Barca widespread acclaim – and titles – under his predecessors.He has the Messi – Suarez – Neymar trio at his disposal but has laid waste to Barca’s controlled style to make sure they get the ball quickly and often.Enrique preparing tactical switchThe transfer policy under sporting director Robert Fernandez is turning up more misses than hits, including signings such as Paco Alcacer, Aleix Vidal and Arda Turan.There is bound to be upheaval at Camp Nou this summer. Barca could well be looking at an outlay of more than €100m – yet again – just to get the squad up to standard. The problem is that they’ve not got that amount to spend.The late summer signing of Andre Gomes from Valencia was part-financed by bringing forward a portion of the 2017 transfer budget – estimated to be a shade under €30m – meaning they will only have around €60m to play with. For that you might get Marco Verratti’s left foot and not much else.Then there is the issue of Lionel Messi’s contract. The 29-year-old has not yet reached a deal with Barca regarding the renewal of his current deal which expires in 2018.Barca are right at the very top of their wage budget as things stand – sustaining the MSN trident is no cheap trick – but will have to match Messi’s demands. As he is the only superstar currently pulling his weight, he will be entitled to ask for his market value.Messi is more than halfway through a four-year deal worth a basic €32m per season after tax but it’s structured unconventionally. For the first two seasons of that deal Messi received €22m. This season – and next – he receives €42m.Messi will no doubt be expecting an improvement; at least €35m per season for the duration of another four-year term. He has scored 19 goals in 20 league games this season and is shouldering an increasing burden for Luis Enrique’s side, so it would appear to be a no-brainer for Barca to pay up.Messi’s interests – however – might not be best served by remaining in Catalunya this summer.These are not the conditions in which Messi can sustain his own streak of success. Barca are on a downward trend – unless something drastic happens – and Messi deserves more than enduring the whistles and boos of a Camp Nou crowd frustrated by a lack of progress.Barca is all Messi knows. He is the clear boss having grown into the role as leader following the departures of big personalities like Carles Puyol, Xavi Hernandez and Dani Alves. The team is bent to his will.Barcelona’s 2016-17 season, however, has laid bare the extent of their structural deficiencies not just on the pitch but off it. Messi’s contributions – such as his double against Leganes last weekend – are serving to paper over the cracks. The significant fan dismay around Camp Nou – including recent boos and whistles against Gomes – is said to have agitated him. What Messi deserves is the assurance that Barca can build a team around him good enough to compete with Real Madrid for the biggest trophies in Spain and in Europe. Currently they cannot make that promise to him.Barcelona are going to have to rebuild their team and strengthen it for the coming seasons but that is not what Messi needs. Barca’s financial constraints mean that they cannot build easily. Messi wants a team good enough to sustain a treble bid but the irony is that he might have to leave for them to afford it. The indulgence of MSN costs a lot both in terms of investment and identity.It might be easier for them to create a side without him, as painful as that might sound, and that’s why a divorce is not as unthinkable as it once was.It would not be completely without precedent. Former Barca president Sandro Rosell has revealed that the time to sell Ronaldinho was after winning the Champions League in 2006 and admits he would have done so had Cristiano Ronaldo or Kaka been available.Zidane: our lead is nothing “When you are Barca manager you have to be cold-blooded,” he said to El Periodico.Messi’s buyout clause stands at €250m but Barca would accept significantly less than that with only one year on his contract. Let’s say for example they take in €150m for him plus the €140m-odd in saved wages over the life of another four-year contract. Those are not inconsiderable sums – especially for a team sorely lacking balance in the squad.Once upon a time homegrown players like Victor Valdes, Puyol, Sergio Busquets, Xavi, Andres Iniesta and Pedro were coming through and ensuring massive fees were not needed to maintain that balance. Those days are over.The pain of losing Messi is going to come some day for Barcelona. When all is said and done he will have led them through their most successful period in history. Will he retire there? Will he decline?Footballers usually get around a decade at the very top and in that respect Messi is already in added time. Wouldn’t it be prudent – and not to mention brave – for Barcelona to cash in while the price is high and ensure they can move forward?last_img read more

Electronic Data Retention and FRCP Rule 26

first_imgChanges were proposed to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) that will impact litigation and the eDiscovery process.  The FRCP lays out rules that are applied in civil cases that are held in US federal courts.  FRCP rules attempt to create a uniform standard that is applied across federal courts.  Many states also model their civil trial rules on those of the FRCP.New changes to the FRCP provide more details on how companies need to handle their business records stored as electronic information to be able to comply with discovery requests.  Discovery happens during the pre-trial phase of a lawsuit where parties can request or subpoena documents and evidence from other parties.New changes were proposed in April 2005 and will go into effect on December 1, 2006 unless Congress takes action.  Of particular interest among the proposed changes is Rule 26.  Rule 26 defines what is considered as discoverable Electronically Stored Information (ESI).  eDiscovery is the legal discovery process as applied to ESI. ESI includes email, email attachments, voicemail, instant messaging, backup tapes, transaction logs, and video files.  Records Management involves the process of ‘declaring’ a document to be a record, and in effect, creates a subset of all company electronic documents.  ESI seems to be much more far reaching and apply to all company electronic data.Maintaining ESI for eDiscovery is challenging and will be easy to get wrong.  The costs related to in-house legal and IT resources can be high.  Privacy issues need to be addressed in any solution.  Companies that don’t comply can be subject to large fines and damaged reputations.  Morgan Lewis Resources has an excellent slide set describing the new requirements and a checklist for creating an eDiscovery Strategy.FRCP Rule 26 requires the parties in the litigation meet and discuss the format ESI is to be delivered, and the responding party may be forced to provide a specific requested electronic format.  For example, the requesting party might specify the ESI to be delivered in the original authored format, PDF, or image, and whether or not metadata should be included as well. A party may claim that ESI can’t be produced because of undue or burdensome costs and the court may agree, but the requesting party may argue that there is “good cause” and force the delivery of the ESI.On request, a company will need to provide a complete data map of all company data repositories for all company locations.  For large companies with no pre-planning, producing an ESI data location directory will be difficult to do quickly.The volume of ESI for a company can be staggering, but there is another twist that further complicates the problem.  Some ESI is proprietary and might include privileged trade secrets or financial information.  This kind of privileged information may be exempt from the eDiscovery process, but being able to identify and extract it from non-privileged ESI will be difficult.  Rule 26 provides a “clawback” clause where any privileged data released inadvertantly during eDiscovery and the producer can request that it be removed and destroyed.Data retention for eDiscovery parallels in many ways or may even extend a company’s strategy for handling Records Management.  Companies need to determine what kind of data can potentially be requested, how to retain the data, and for how long the data should be kept.Failure to have a good plan in place to address eDiscovery can result in significant fines and potential criminal sanctions.  FRCP 26 echoes again the need to have sound data retention policies.  While some are seeking to reduce or limit the data retention requirements of Sarbanes-Oxley, similar requirements keep popping up elsewhere that will in the end just make data retention a requirement that becomes standard practice for a company doing business.last_img read more

Where Do We Find the Time? Social Networking Use Up 82%

first_imgThe numbers include statistics from the US, UK, Australia, Brazil, Japan, Switzerland, Germany, France, Spain and Italy, and show the United States well in the lead, with over 140 million unique visitors in December 2009. If the numbers are right and each unique visitor is really a different person, then nearly half of the US population visited a social networking site last month. Australia, on the other hand, leads the pack, with its users staying on social networking sites for just under seven hours.

Check-Ins Coming to Facebook Events

first_imgA Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Tags:#Facebook#Location#web Related Posts The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verificationcenter_img Facebook is testing a new feature that would let users check-in to their Facebook events. AllFacebook.com first caught wind of the feature today, noting that some iPhone users are now seeing the option to check-in to events they’re attending.A Facebook spokesperson says that “We’re currently testing this and it will be available with the next iPhone release.”According to AllFacebook.com, the check-in option shows up only for items you’ve confirmed you’ll be attending and only when you arrive within the event’s geographic area. The new feature would likely boost the use of Facebook Places by bringing the ability to check in to the popular Facebook Events module. Places launched last summer, and despite the network’s massive user-base, Facebook’s location-based service faces competition from a number of other companies, most notably Foursquare and Gowalla. A recent survey of merchants, however, did find that more are spending their marketing dollars on Facebook Places than on Foursquare. The addition of a check-in option for events is just one way Facebook has been working to expand Places. It’s also been expanding its Deals feature as well, bringing Groupon-like coupons to those who check-in at or near certain businesses.
