  • Connecting with multicultural members: Research findings for supporting diverse communities

    first_imgOver the past five years, multicultural consumers have accounted for 100 percent of U.S. population growth and 61 percent of credit union membership growth. As the population becomes increasingly diverse, understanding cultural differences should be a top priority for credit unions, especially with the drive for profitable growth.Our What Matters Now™: Insights from Multicultural Consumers research uncovered significant differences in behavioral areas like financial product ownership and research behaviors. Those kinds of valuable insights are the keys to understanding how different cultural groups feel about and use financial services. It’s the kind of actionable data that credit unions can use to connect in meaningful ways to this growing segment of the population.Through this research, our eyes were opened to how people across all races and ethnicities use financial products and services. To learn more about these insights, view our recent webinar.

  • WI Women hoping to break semi-final jinx

    first_imgMUMBAI, India (CMC):West Indies Women are determined to break their semi-final jinx when they clash with New Zealand Women in the second semi-final of the Twenty20 World Cup at Wankhede Stadium here today.The Caribbean side have never reached a T20 World Cup final, having fallen at the final four at each of the last three events, and captain Stafanie Taylor believes her side is poised to finally get over this mental hurdle.Taylor, meanwhile, has been the most consistent batsman with scores of 40, 40, 35 and 47 at the top of the order, while those around her have struggled.”Today in training, I actually said at the meeting that I think this is the fourth time that we will be in the semi-finals, and this time around it’s not actually against Australia, so I think maybe that’s a plus for us,” Taylor told a media conference here yesterday.”But we definitely want to cross this barrier. We’ve been here too many times not to know how to approach it, and today, at training, the vibes there was fantastic, and that’s what I want to see going into tomorrow’s game, so we just hope we can put our best foot forward and go out there hard.”UNDER-19 SUCCESSThis time around, the Windies Women have a special belief which has been further bolstered by the success of the Under-19 West Indies team at the ICC Youth World Cup in Bangladesh earlier this year.”We’ve been talking about since the time the Under-19s won the tournament. It’s more like an inspiration for us,” Taylor noted.”We know that we came close in the past and this is like more drive to actually go out there and do the job and to see that both men or in the semi-final, and playing at the same ground I think that’s fantastic. We definitely just want to go out there and do our best.”She added: “On Twitter and Facebook, it’s just blowing up to know that both of us are actually in the semi-finals. Everybody is just behind us a hundred per cent and giving us good feedback.”It’s about us going out there and actually doing it. I think it’s a mental thing tomorrow … they say 75 per cent of the game is played there (mind) and I think it’s on that day who is actually more composed. If we try to do that, we can pull this off.”last_img read more

  • VMware: Drops Prices by Half for Small Business Market

    first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts alex williams VMware is changing the pricing model to a more pay as you go basis and is cutting by half the cost of its low-end offerings for the small business market.The pricing changes are a reminder of how competitive it is getting as virtualization technologies become a means for deploying private clouds.Microsoft this week announced it own initiative to launch private cloud environments at its Worldwide Parters conference. Microsoft is in alliance with Citrix, a competitor to VMware. For hardware, Microsoft has formed alliances with Dell, Hewlett-Packard and Fujitsu.VMware has another approach. Its strategy is to help data centers run, secure and manage applications in the private cloud or have them bridged on-demand to partner-hosted public clouds.It is apparent that VMware is trying to increase the pressure on Microsoft while also responding to criticism about its higher prices.Under the new pricing for VMware vCenter products, customers will now be charged for which virtual machines that get powered. So, for example, if a client has purchased 10,000 virtual machines in the previous 12 months then it will only pays for the virtual machines it powers up. The pricing is effective September 1.The model borrows from cloud computing services. It’s clear the intention is to provide more attractive ways to get customers to scale its use of virtualization services but on a pay as you go basis. Customers have been asking for this change as they commit more deeply to virtualization.This in turn provides insight into VMWare’s plan to reduce by half the cost of its software for the small business market. VMware is seeing some of its most significant growth with small businesses. VSphere Essentials is VMware’s most affordable virtualization platform. It will now cost $495 for six CPUs, or $83 per processor. That is down from nearly $1,000 for six CPUs. VMware is also announcing it is tripling the power of its virtual management environment, providing the capability to for its VMware vCenter Server to maintain up to 15,000 virtual machines.The new upgrade is designed to increase the scalability of the platform to support cloud computing service providers. VMware’s news goes into far deeper detail on issues such as its memory compression technology enhancements and faster migration capabilities.But the most interesting news is the contrast to Microsoft.VMware is using its position in the market to create disruptions in pricing models. In turn, its incremental improvements provide the company with the capability to offer easier scaling capabilities with more flexible pricing, helping small businesses most of all.

  • Video: Cam Newton Is Getting Crushed For Sulking, Walking Out Of Press Conference

    first_imgCam Newton is unhappy during press conference.Cam NewtonThe people who don’t like Cam Newton have more fuel to add to that hate fire. The Carolina Panthers’ quarterback is currently getting crushed on social media for the way he handled himself after his team’s loss to the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl. At his post-game press conference, Newton sullenly sat for roughly three minutes, barely answered any questions and then got up and left. Here’s video of his exit. Panthers Cam Newton barely answered questions and here he exits pic.twitter.com/eNMDpv2sQH— Cam Inman (@CamInman) February 8, 2016And here’s some of the reaction. Cam’s presser was weak. If you’re going to celebrate when you win, you’ve got to face the music when you lose.— Jim Rome (@jimrome) February 8, 2016I’m a Cam fan. Tonight’s outcome doesn’t change how incredible he is, was this season. But how he handled the presser was most disappointing— Chris Fedor (@ChrisFedor) February 8, 2016BTW…I love Cam…great player, but wish he would’ve handled that press session better than that— Joel Klatt (@joelklatt) February 8, 2016It’s fair to call Cam a front runner now. Dude lives it up when things go well, turns into a whiny brat when they don’t.— Clay Travis (@ClayTravis) February 8, 2016So disappointing. I get that he’s in pain. I’m not a Cam hater, but he has to be a better leader & professional. https://t.co/emFpcziUjW— Jerry Brewer (@JerryBrewer) February 8, 2016Just when I start liking Cam, he goes back to pouting and a walk off at the press conference. Stardom is a two way street.— Hunter Mahan (@HunterMahan) February 8, 2016Hardest thing to do after a “big game” loss is speak to the media (yes I know I had to a lot) but what was that Cam Newton?! #MVP #SB50— Taylor Twellman (@TaylorTwellman) February 8, 2016I see college freshmen and sophomores handle themselves better annually after losing in the Final Four than Cam Newton just did. Ooooof.— Matt Norlander (@MattNorlander) February 8, 2016Obviously, it’s understandable that Newton is disappointed, but the criticism of him is (mostly) fair here. He could’ve acted better.last_img read more
