Payments group urges action on CUNA-backed breach bill

first_imgThe Electronic Payments Coalition, of which CUNA is a member, wrote to U.S. House leadership Tuesday to urge advancement of data security and data breach notice legislation.The Data Security Act of 2015 (H.R. 2205), addressed in the letter and strongly supported by CUNA, passed the House Financial Services Committee in December by a 46-9 vote. H.R. 2205 has also been referred to the House Energy and Commerce Committee, where it has not been considered.“It is time to protect consumers’ personal data by putting in place a national security standard,” the letter reads. “That is why we ask Congressional leadership to engage both the Energy and Commerce Committee and the Financial Services Committee to enter into a constructive dialogue with each other to advance comprehensive data security and breach notice legislation that works for all interested parties.”H.R. 2205, sponsored by Reps. Randy Neugebauer (R-Texas) and John Carney (D-Del.), contains the principles that CUNA believes must be present in any data breach legislation. continue reading » 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Big bikes rev up for good causes

first_imgHarley-Davidson’s 2012 range is sure tobe put through its paces, not just witheveryday activity but also at the manygoodwill events where the Harley brandis represented.(Image: Sean Oberholster) Journey of Hope is an annual bike eventorganised to support sufferers and survivorsof breast cancer.(Image: Journey of Hope)MEDIA CONTACTS • Michael CarneyMarketing manager, Harley-Davidson Africa+27 21 674 6320 or +27 71 604 3287Sean OberholsterLoud. Menacing. Dangerous. For many people, these are the first words that come to mind when thinking about motorbikes and bikers.For bikers, it’s about the wind in your hair, the freedom a motorbike can give you, no restraints or seatbelts, a passion for speed, pushing the limits for excitement, a way of life. For Harley-Davidson riders it’s also about giving back to others.The iconic motorcycle brand recently launched its 2012 range, and whether the mighty machines inspire envy, admiration or irritation, it is important to not forget that they are used extensively for good in South Africa and elsewhere.The Turbine Hall in Newtown was the setting for Harley-Davidson’s unveiling earlier in September. The event was hosted by local soap star and Harley rider Jack Devnarain of Isidingo fame. Other big names present included award winning singer Louise Carver, TV personality Kuli Roberts, and musician HHP, as well as popular rockers, Southern Gypsy Queen, who provided entertainment for the evening.“The Harley-Davidson brand represents passion, freedom of expression, individuality, independence and adventure,” said Celine Gruizinga, Harley-Davidson’s country manager in Africa, in a statement. “The launch was proof that Harley is a unique lifestyle brand that extends far beyond the road.”Doing good around the worldHarley-Davidson’s official charity is the Muscular Dystrophy Foundation of South Africa, a cause that’s promoted at rallies and other gatherings. Other chapters around the world support the cause in their own regions.Over 31 years of support, Harley riders have raised millions for research into the disease, which affects people through increasing muscle weakness and death of muscle tissue. Eventually physical functions may become so severely impaired that the individual’s quality of life is diminished.Another charity actively supported by local Harley riders is the annual Toy Run, where bikers bring a toy to give to a needy child over the festive season.  Other riders take part in events such as the Journey of Hope run for breast cancer, or Bikers Against Crime. In July 2011 the Harley brand was involved in the annual Bikers for Mandela Day initiative, which saw a group of bikers depart on a 2 200km round trip through Gauteng and Mpumalanga provinces, working in soup kitchens, painting childcare centres, and helping communities wherever possible.Breaking the mouldThe stereotypical biker is a tough-looking guy with long hair, a beard, bike leathers, tattoos and piercings who belongs to a motorcycle club. While many bikers look the part, underneath they are often professional working people such as doctors, lawyers and other well-earning individuals who buy Harleys to show off their achievements in life. Harleys are generally pricier than the average bike. For many owners, customisation is key, and one Harley can differ vastly from the next one, with unique parts and qualities. This is part of the Harley tradition.Each area with a Harley-Davidson dealership has an associated motorcycle club. These clubs are very supportive of charities, and within the Harley community, over 65 000 bikers have been known to show up for fundraising events. On Harley Davidson runs, responsible riding is what it’s all about and there will always be safety officials present to make sure rules are followed. A chosen biker leads the way, setting the pace for everyone to follow. This biker may not be overtaken because he or she rides at a speed that is safe for everyone. New toys for boys and girlsWith 2012 looming, Harley-Davidson’s new range for the coming year features 29 new innovations, including a bike that changes as your mood changes. The new Dyna FLD Switchback, for touring or for cruising? It can be either within 30 seconds as the bike sports easy-to-detach saddlebags and windscreen, effortlessly changing from one style to the other.Harley celebrates the 10-year anniversary of the original V-Rod engine with a limited-availability power cruiser, the V-Rod 10th Anniversary edition, which will only be sold during 2012. This is one of three new bikes in the V-Rod range alongside the Night Rod Special and the V-Rod Muscle.The new number for Harley-Davidson is 103, as the 2012 line hasn’t just had a change in looks, but a change in heart too. Harley has selected a few of the new models to carry the 103 cubic inch engine, a more powerful, yet more fuel-efficient development.The twin-cam powerhouse, equivalent to about 1 700 cc, allows for cruising at lower revolutions, so the rider can enjoy the ride for longer. The 103 engine produces about 6% more power than its predecessor, the 96.+27 21 674 6320 or +27 71 604 3287last_img read more

PH needs to ‘continue to get better’ as rest of Southeast Asia catches up

Photo from Fiba.comOne of the biggest realizations of Gilas Pilipinas from the 2017 Southeast Asian Games is that everyone else in the region has caught up in terms of level of competition.Though the Philippines came away with the gold medal in men’s basketball, it faced a tall challenge from regional rivals like Thailand, Indonesia, and Singapore.ADVERTISEMENT Trump signs bills in support of Hong Kong protesters Coach Chot Reyes admitted that the Philippines should start developing its ranks from the ground-up, and it starts in the biennial games.“We have to continue getting better, not only for our Southeast Asian opponents, but for Asia as well, and not only for Asia, but also for the world,” Reyes said on Thursday at the homecoming presser hosted by Chooks-to-Go at Marco Polo in Ortigas.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSBoxers Pacquiao, Petecio torchbearers for SEA Games openingFour-time SEA Games gold medalist Kiefer Ravena echoed those sentiments, noting that unlike before Gilas couldn’t simply just turn it on when it wanted to against quality competition.“Before, we could be lenient in practice and still expect to come out on top. But as they grow and get better, the task of getting a gold medal just gets harder and harder. For us with this type of program, we really have to have the dedication because we already know how tough the opposition will be,” he said.

It doesn’t matter if we have one day or one month to prepare, we’re all going to fight. That’s the message we have for these guys and it’s very consistent,” said Reyes. “We might be outplayed, we might be outmatched, we might be outsized, but we’ll never be outfought.”ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

When is it acceptable to make money off sweetgrass

first_imgTamara Pimentel APTN NewsEarlier this week APTN News reported that an Alberta elder was furious a department store in Calgary was selling sweetgrass.She said traditional medicines aren’t meant to be profitable.But when is it acceptable to make money from sweetgrass?Amy Willier and her mother, Yvonne Jobin, run Moonstone Creations in Calgary.It’s a gift shop selling Indigenous art and clothing, along with sage, sweetgrass and smudge kits.Willier argues times have changed.“I can see people being upset with the lack of protocol and having an expectation when you’re picking medicines and using medicines, that it’s done in a traditional way,” she said.“But from a store perspective I also can understand that, yea, you kind of need to make money.”Willier said her sweetgrass is picked by an elder from Saskatchewan who is paid with tobacco and money.“Traditionally we gave gifts – It’s an exchange,” she said. “The exchange right now is money because it costs gas to go and pick. It all costs money because that’s the world that we live in.“The question here in the middle of winter, in January, the question is – are you going to smudge, or not smudge? If you want to smudge you’re going to find a source.”[email protected]last_img read more
