Consumers say mobile apps are worth switching for

first_imgAlthough most consumers are remaining loyal to their financial institution (FI), the reasons cited by those who are switching are changing.According to SNL Financials’ early 2015 survey of nearly 5,000 smartphone users, just 11 percent admitted to changing their primary checking account to a new FI in the previous 12 months. This means 89 percent of consumers are demonstrating some degree of loyalty to their current FI.This was especially apparent for seniors (ages 67 and up) and baby boomers (ages 48 to 66), who switched at a rate of just 4 percent and 6 percent, respectively. Notably, rates were significantly higher for young adults ages 18 to 25 and 26 to 35, who switched at rates of 19 percent and 16 percent, respectively.The survey found consumers are increasingly giving consideration to an FI’s mobile application offering in deciding whether to switch. In fact, 26 percent of those who changed FIs did so in search of an improved mobile app experience. continue reading » 32SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Demonstrate exceptional leadership traits at your credit union

first_img 8SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr There are many traits that make a good leader. From keeping open communications with your team to following through on your commitments, good traits and consistency in action can help people feel comfortable and confident following your lead.I came across a short, but distinct list describing exceptional leadership – and I have to say, I agree with everything on it. The list, composed by Marcel Schwantes, principal and founder of Leadership From the Core, described the list as four traits that appeal to all generations. Here’s how the list describes exceptional leaders:They envision the future and get others to do the same. Inspiration is the driving force behind motivation, Schwantes says. In order to empower your team, you have to inspire them so they want to work alongside you to make your vision a reality.They take initiative and act. Great leaders take necessary and beneficial risks and “create urgency with intent and purpose,” he writes. continue reading »last_img read more

CAFCL: We will not return Champions League trophy and medals – Esperance

first_imgEsperance de Tunis say they will not return the trophy and medals of the CAF Champions League to CAF as instructed and will take the matter to the Court of Arbitration for Sports.The Tunisians were ordered to return the CAF Champions League trophy and medals and replay the second leg of their final with Wydad Casablanca, following an Emergency CAF Executive Committee meeting in Paris.The Tunisian side led 1-0 in Saturday’s second leg but Moroccan opponents Wydad Casablanca left the pitch after an equaliser they scored was disallowed.Wydad wanted the video assistant referee to check if the goal should stand but the system was not working.After more than 90 minutes delay, Esperance were declared Champions.The Confederation of African Football (Caf) said the second leg will be replayed at a neutral venue.The 1-1 draw from the first leg in Morocco stands.The replay will be after the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, which ends on 19 July.A Caf statement said “conditions of game and safety were not met” in the second leg and made clear Esperance players must return their winners’ medals as well as the trophy.But Esperance immediately responded in a tweet that they will treat the CAF Exco decisions with complete disregard.The Tunisian Prime Minister Youssef Chahed also took to twitter to salute the Tunisian security forces and says “those who question Tunisia’s security should assume the responsibility.”He has also praised Esperance fans for their discipline and says he will not give up Esperance’s or any Tunisian team’s rights.last_img read more

NFL Combine 2020 schedule, dates, workout times, records, invites & everything else to know

first_imgThe schedule for the NFL Combine in 2020 has been adjusted to satisfy the league’s perpetual thirst for prime-time TV viewers and ratings.The on-field workout portion of the NFL Draft scouting event traditionally had taken place through the mornings and early afternoons of Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday during Combine week. In 2020, those workouts will begin at 4 p.m. ET and end at 11 p.m. ET on the same days, with the exception being Sunday (2-7 p.m. ET). Now viewers can watch young men run around in tights while eating dinner rather than lunch. As for the location of the 2020 NFL Combine, the scouting event will return to Indianapolis for the 34th consecutive year. It’s the only place the NFL Combine has ever been held.NFL MOCK DRAFT 2020:Lions, Dolphins pass on Tua Tagovailoa; Eagles, Raiders, Bills go for playmakersThe aforementioned on-field drills still get the spotlight, but keep in mind the most important activities at the NFL Combine will take place away from the cameras. According to former NFL general manager and current Sporting News contributor Jeff Diamond, behind the scenes at the Combine will be “lots of conversations — legal and illegal under NFL rules — between general managers with their contract/salary cap guys often in tow; conversations with agents for soon-to-be free agents and for players already signed but targeted for pay cuts or release. There also are trade talks among teams looking to move/acquire players or improve draft spots.”While the most important aspects of the Combine for players are physicals and interviews, the priorities for GMs are the agent chats in hotel rooms, bars, restaurants, coffee shops and skyways of Indianapolis … with greater privacy needed for the illegal discussions on other teams’ players who will soon hit the free-agency market.”With that as the background, below is all you need to know about the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, including the TV schedule, the agenda for the players, the list of Combine invites and the drills they will be asked to perform on the field at Lucas Oil Stadium.MORE: The highest, lowest Wonderlic scores in NFL historyNFL Combine 2020 schedule, datesThe biggest change to the NFL Combine schedule for 2020 comes in the start times for on-field workouts Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Now the action will extend into and through primetime.NFL Network, the exclusive TV channel for all on-field drills at the Combine, will present seven straight hours of workout coverage on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. On Sunday, the network will show all five hours of the last group’s (DB) drills. Host Rich Eisen and analyst/draft expert Daniel Jeremiah will anchor NFL Network’s Combine coverage with additional commentary from Charles Davis and others.Below is the complete TV schedule for on-field workouts and drills at the 2020 NFL Combine.Thursday, Feb. 27TimeGroupTV channel4-11 p.m. ETTE, QB, WRNFL NetworkFriday, Feb. 28TimeGroupTV channel4-11 p.m. ETPK, ST, OL, RBNFL NetworkSaturday, Feb. 29TimeGroupTV channel4-11 p.m. ETDL, LBNFL NetworkSunday, March 1TimeGroupTV channel2-7 p.m. ETDBNFL NetworkThe on-field workouts shown on TV, of course, are just the tip of the iceberg that is an NFL prospect’s Combine experience. For many players, the drills are the least relevant portion of the week.A given prospect’s workout at the Combine comes after he has gone through orientation, interviews, measurements, a medical exam, more interviews, media obligations, more medical exams, a position coach interview, psychological testing, an NFLPA meeting, more interviews, the bench press and more psychological testing.

Each athlete receiving the necessary number of votes, by position, is then extended an invitation. While it is not a perfect science, the goal of the committee is to invite every player that will be drafted in the ensuing NFL Draft.”Below are the 337 players who were invited to the 2020 NFL Combine, in alphabetical order and organized by position group.QuarterbacksQBCollegeKelly BryantMissouriJoe BurrowLSUKevin DavidsonPrincetonJacob EasonWashingtonJake FrommGeorgiaAnthony GordonWashington StateJustin HerbertOregonJalen HurtsOklahomaBrian LewerkeMichigan StateJordan LoveUtah StateJake LutonOregon StateCole McDonaldHawaiiSteven MontezColoradoJames MorganFlorida InternationalShea PattersonMichiganNate StanleyIowaTua TagovailoaAlabamaRunning backsRBCollegeSalvon AhmedWashingtonCam AkersFlorida StateJet AndersonTCULeVante BellamyWestern MichiganEno BenjaminArizona StateRaymond CalaisLouisiana-LafayetteDeeJay DallasMiamiAJ DillonBoston CollegeJ.K.

(Again, the league is aiming for better TV ratings.) From Sports Illustrated’s Kalyn Kahler:”Roughly eight or nine position-specific drills have been cut from the workouts and replaced with the same number of new drills. The committee decided to add timing to some existing drills like the gauntlet, and the defensive backs’ W drill, in order to make the workouts more entertaining for fans tuning in to the NFL Network’s broadcast. …”Some of the new drills include a smoke route for quarterbacks and wide receivers. A smoke route is a short route, a one-step hitch that is popular in run pass option plays which are now a staple of NFL offenses. The smoke route is usually used on the backside of a run play as a bail out for the quarterback when the run look isn’t there. This drill will also be timed, from the quarterback’s hands to the receiver’s hands.”Per Kahler’s report, there will also be new drills for tight ends and linemen, including a figure eight pass-rush drill for D-linemen.The timed “Figure 8” drill will be a new addition for DL at the NFL Scouting Combine.Prospects are to stay as close to the hoop as possible. There’s an object on the ground for them to grab while staying on the move, which shows their bend/flexibility.Here’s an example:— Jordan Reid (@JReidNFL) February 20, 2020NFL Combine recordsBelow are the best numbers for the core NFL Combine events — 40-yard dash, bench press, vertical jump, broad jump, three-cone drill, 20-yard shuttle and 60-yard shuttle — since 2006, or what the league calls “recent” history.The NFL does not keep Combine records, so these marks are unofficial.MORE: Complete NFL Combine recordsBench pressRecord holder: Stephen Paea, DT, 2011Repetitions (225 pounds): 49Top five since 2006:RankPlayerRepsPos.Year1.Stephen Paea49DT20112.Mitch Petrus45OL2010T3.Jeff Owens44DT2010T3.Dontari Poe44DT2012T5.Russell Bodine42C2014T5.Harrison Phillips42DT2018T5.Tank Tyler42DL2007Vertical jumpRecord holder: Chris Conley, WR, 2015 / Donald Washington, CB, 2009Height: 45.0″Top five since 2006:RankPlayerHeightPos.YearT1.Chris Conley45.0WR2015T1.Donald Washington45.0CB20093.Byron Jones44.5CB2015T4.A.J.
