The said direction is given by an Additional Sessions Judge at Karkardooma court while disposing of a bail plea moved by one of the accused of participating in the riots that took place in the northeast districts of Delhi. While granting the bail to the accused, the court observed that: ‘The reply of the IO had stated that Aslam is an eye-witness who has given a statement under section 161 of CrPC that he has seen the accused Yogedender Singh at the scene of crime while entering the house. The said assertion in the reply is factually false as reflected in the charge-sheet.’ While noting that the narrative presented by the Investigating Officer is different from the facts mentioned in the charge-sheet, the court highlighted that the IO has to be careful about what he writes. The court also took into consideration the fact that the accused has three minor children and his wife is suffering from physical and mental ailments, receiving treatment from the IHBAS Hospital. The court also observed that the prosecution wrongly quoted an eye witness identifying the accused at the spot, when as per the charge-sheet, the accused was nowhere to be found near the scene of crime. The accused in the present case was represented by Advocate Bilal Anwar. Next Storylast_img read more

Immobile mobile banking: Stuck in the mud

first_img 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Robert McGarvey A blogger and speaker, Robert McGarvey is a longtime journalist who has covered credit unions extensively, notably for Credit Union Times as well as the New York Times and TheStreet, … Web: www.mcgarvey.net Details How many of your members do most of their banking via a mobile app?How many should?Milestones to remember before answering:iPhone introduced June 2007SMS banking via phone debuted in Europe 1999Mobile banking smartphone apps take off in 2010We are 20 years into the banking by mobile revolution and 10 years into the banking by smart app revolution so tell me this: why do roughly half of us not use a mobile banking app, according to a 2018 Harland Clarke report.About half plain never use the thing.  Never.The document elaborated: “Only about a third of respondents are using a mobile banking app on a phone or tablet with some regularity — a minimum of three times a month. This means, despite the fact that 77 percent of Americans now have a smartphone, two-thirds are not using mobile banking at all or are only using it a few times a year.”Talk about a failure on the part of bankers and credit union executives.This is an era where ever more of us meditate via smartphone, we interact with “personal” trainers via smartphone, we do email on the device, we keep our calendars on the phone, we even read books and watch movies on phones.That anemic mobile banking take-up is despite the obvious fact that smartphone access has an enormous advantage for consumers, namely, easy biometric login (fingerprints for most of us). Don’t ask me the password for my primary credit union account or my mega bank account. I do not know them off hand and that’s because I adopted long, random passwords but I mainly sign in with a fingerprint on a smartphone.The other consumer advantage of course is the mobility of information itself.  A consumer standing in the checkout line does not have to guess her/his checking balance. A few clicks and there’s knowledge. That ubiquity of information is a revolution that helps empower every consumer to be smarter in her/his financial decisions.For the financial institutions, too, there’s a plus: vastly lower costs.  Case in point per Harland and Clarke: “Mobile deposit is worth your effort. For financial institutions, the savings are huge — mobile deposit costs financial institutions just $0.08 per transaction, versus $.80 at an ATM and $8 via teller.”Those cost savings are across the board. Digital access just is a lot cheaper for the institution than is analog, in person access.Here’s the money question: why don’t more of us do more of our banking on a mobile device?A report by Extractable entitled Digital Experiences in Banking 2019 offers a clue: “In an era of digital self-service, 50 percent of the top 20 banks don’t offer an option to open an account online, and several lack a mobile optimized site.”Those are stunning shortcomings.Why can’t consumers open a new account on a mobile device? There is no good excuse for the lack.  Just as there is no good excuse for the lack of mobile optimized sites.Financial institution digital access simply is not keeping up with broad advances elsewhere in the digital world.And you wonder why growing numbers of Millennials and Gen Z migrate to non banks.The non banks, in most cases, are mobile first fintechs that are created to capitalize on the plusses of mobile access. They are good at precisely what traditional financial institutions are not and digital, increasingly, appears to be a top priority, especially for consumers under, say, 35.They are the future of any financial institution.  The fintechs are wooing and winning them.More bad news is that despite having access to mountains of consumer data, financial institutions simply cannot personalize mobile banking. Said Extractable, “94% of banks surveyed in the recent Digital Banking Report say that they can currently only deliver basic levels or no personalization at all.”Call that a huge fail, especially this many years into the mobile transformation.Question: is your institution’s mobile banking product yours? Or is it a vendor’s with essentially no customization, for your institution or your members? It’s an embarrassing question to answer a decade into this.Especially because the truthful answer is that the vast majority of credit unions offer no meaningful institutional customization.  The credit union down the block offers the exact same mobile banking experience and they both are blah, both fail on member personalization too.Credit unions today have two obvious lines of attack.  They need to focus on really upping mobile usage by members.  And they need to find ways to create more personalized, compelling digital experiences.Time is shortening. The time to act is now.last_img read more

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Classic rockers Van Halen had Nikon at Jones Beach Theater jumping on Saturday night.Outlined in the fluorescent colors of the stage lighting, lead vocalist David Lee Roth danced flamboyantly around in one of his usual tight outfits, backed by the electric strums of guitarists Eddie and Wolfgang and drummer Alex Van Halen.The show was their second at the amphitheater last week. Promoters had added the additional concert earlier this year due to popular demand to see the popular California rockers.The set included their many fan favorites, including “Beautiful Girls,” “Hot for Teacher” and “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love.” The night concluded with their cover of The Kinks’  “You Really Got Me,” “Panama,” their 1984 hit, “Jump,” plus a whole lot of applause.Following Eddie Van Halen’s icy interview with Rolling Stone in June, with worrisome implications about the band’s future, fans were relieved to see the bands’ dynamic on stage.Despite their differences, the tension between David and Eddie was nonexistent, even if David and the Van Halens all cut hands pretty quickly at the end of the show.Their maturity was a clear indication that this was a night not for themselves or their fame or their money, but for the fans.last_img read more

Boeheim: John Thompson, who died at 78, ‘was one of a kind’

first_img Comments Boeheim and Thompson had a fraught relationship over the years but eventually became friends. “It’s really hard right now,” Boeheim said on ESPN’s “Get Up.” “We had the toughest rivalry you could possibly have for a few years. North Carolina and Duke is what everybody talks about in (college) basketball, and I think it is the greatest rivalry for a long period of time. But for about 10 years, Syracuse and Georgetown was — there was nothing quite like it. John built that really out of nothing.”The two Naismith Hall of Famers met 46 times in their careers, with Thompson’s tough, defensive-oriented teams winning 25 of the matchups. At 6-foot-10, with his signature white towel slung over his shoulder, Thompson was known to be an imposing figure on the bench. Among Division I head coaches, his number of wins ranks 62nd among with a 596-239 (.714) record. Thompson’s legacy off the court is arguably more important than his legacy on it. He recruited predominantly Black teams — some thought Georgetown was actually a historically Black college because of its basketball team. He gave a young point guard named Allen Iverson a chance after he was wrongfully accused of being in an altercation with a woman when he was 17. Iverson thanked Thompson on Twitter for saving his life.Thompson was an inspirational figure for Black coaches in every sport. Syracuse football head coach Dino Babers said he once listened to the “powerful, powerful trailblazer” speak at a banquet.“(Thompson was) someone that, if you were a young coach at the time like I was, and if you aspired to become a head coach, (he was) someone you needed to listen to,” Babers said. “He had extreme knowledge, and there’s no doubt his knowledge was power.”SU women’s head coach Quentin Hillsman has also interacted with Thompson. He shared his condolences on Twitter with a broken heart emoji, writing “going to miss you, ‘Pops.’” Facebook Twitter Google+ “We lost a great basketball coach and a great person with the passing of my friend John Thompson,” Boeheim said in a tweet. “He was a leader in the game and in life. John empowered all coaches, but especially Black coaches and Black players.” center_img Published on August 31, 2020 at 4:49 pm Contact Danny: [email protected] | @DannyEmerman The Daily Orange is a nonprofit newsroom that receives no funding from Syracuse University. Consider donating today to support our mission.The college basketball world is mourning the loss of legendary coach John Thompson, who died of unknown causes Sunday night at the age of 78. Thompson coached at Georgetown from 1972 to 1999, through the height of the Big East conference, and led the Hoyas to a national title and three Final Four appearances. He was the first Black head coach to win the NCAA Championship and became one of the most recognizable figures in college basketball history. Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim said in an interview with Syracuse.com that Thompson may have been “the most impactful coach we’ve ever had.” Boeheim’s Orange were fierce rivals with the Hoyas through the 1980s and 1990s, the height of the Big East. “He was one of a kind,” Boeheim said Monday. “There aren’t that many. He brought a presence to the game that nobody does, has. He was a great coach, but he was also a role model for a lot of coaches — white coaches and Black coaches.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThompson’s Hoyas upset the Orange in the last game at Manley Field House in 1980, leading Thompson to say “Manley Field House is officially closed.” Syracuse entered the contest ranked No. 2 in the nation and riding a 57-game home winning streak, but lost 52-50 to Thompson and Georgetown. last_img read more

United Way Of Thurston County Partnering With RSVP To Find Reading…

first_imgFacebook12Tweet0Pin0 Most people agree that a quality education is a building block for a good quality of life.  When children enter kindergarten without fundamental reading skills they begin school already behind.  Studies show that if a child is not reading at their grade level in 3rd grade, they continue to struggle and it greatly impacts their ability to graduate on time. When kids don’t graduate, most will lack the skills to succeed as self-supporting adults. Nationwide, United Way has launched a three-year commitment to recruit 1,000,000 volunteers to provide early academic support to school kids in need.  Ambitious?  You bet.  But United Way believes it can be done.  In our community the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) has developed a model to help our schools and young readers who may be struggling. Being a reading buddy is a minimum commitment of 30 minutes per week and requires no formal training.  Volunteers provide an essential role in a child’s academic development, by practicing literacy and comprehension, while encouraging an appreciation of reading for a child who may be feeling discouraged.center_img In the past few years, our public schools have faced immense budget cuts.  A reduction in staff assistants and increased classroom sizes challenge our teachers.  But clearly, schools cannot manage the needs alone.  Communities must now become involved even more to ensure that each child gains the important tools needed to become productive adults. United Way and RSVP hope to instill the value of reading in the earliest grades, which will carry them through high school graduation and beyond.  Common good for our youth is common good for all.  If you want to help our schools and be a reading buddy, contact Jennifer Thompson, RSVP Volunteer Coordinator at 360-943-2773 x 21 or [email protected]last_img read more
