Millennial Money Playing catchup with credit cards

first_imgAmrita Jayakumar, The Associated Press Millennials would rather swipe right than swipe plastic. They love to pay their brunch tabs with cash. Debt scares them so much they don’t care about credit card rewards.The generation born 1981-1996 is accused of many things, but their dislike of credit cards is blown out of proportion. A Google search for “why millennials don’t like credit cards” returns nearly 5 million results. But is it fair to say they don’t like something they couldn’t get?Some outside factors meant millennials didn’t have access to credit the way previous generations did. Here’s the reality, along with tips to manage credit well at any age.NO INCOME, NO CO-SIGNER, NO CREDITMillennials had a slower entry to credit than their Generation X counterparts in part because of a 2009 law, says Paul Siegfried , senior vice-president at credit bureau TransUnion.The Credit Card Accountability Responsibility and Disclosure Act limited the proliferation of credit card offers that left many younger borrowers — especially college students — in debt. It’s had an outsize role in access to credit for younger Americans.Under the law, issuers cannot offer credit cards to anyone younger than 21 unless they have a qualified co-signer or proof of income. The law also restricts how issuers can market on college campuses: no more free pizza or T-shirts as enticements to open a credit account.The total number of new college credit card accounts opened fell 17 per cent in the year after the law went into effect, according to Federal Reserve data.Making things more difficult, the financial crisis that began in late 2007 led banks to close their coffers to all but consumers with the best credit. “In 2009 and 2010, you had lenders that were reducing credit lines and granting fewer loans, including credit cards,” Siegfried says.This intensified the catch-22 situation for young adults: No one will give you credit because your score is too low; and your score is low because no one will give you credit. Eager to establish their financial lives, tech-savvy millennials helped fuel the rise of other products, like online personal loans.Millennials opened more than twice as many personal loans as Generation X did at the same age, according to a 2017 TransUnion study . Fintech companies, which offer online financial products, grew from 2 per cent of the personal loan market in 2009 to 24 per cent in 2016.HOW MILLENNIALS USE CREDIT CARDSThe financial crisis, along with crushing student loan balances, did leave some millennials wary of debt. But as lenders started loosening up criteria, millennials responded, Siegfried says. The number of new credit card accounts opened by millennials jumped from 5.5 million in the first half of 2013 to 9.3 million in the same period this year, TransUnion says.When they finally get that elusive piece of plastic, millennials in general use it as frequently as previous generations, according to a survey by Aite Group , a financial services industry research company. Forty-six per cent of millennials surveyed say they use their card at least once a week, versus 52 per cent of Gen Xers and 48 per cent of baby boomers.The difference is that millennials tend to carry fewer cards and put more research into choosing one, says Kevin Morrison, a senior analyst and author of the report.HOW TO MANAGE YOUR CREDIT AT ANY AGEMillennial or not, here’s how to make the best use of your cards to build your credit :PAY YOUR BILL ON TIME. This is the single biggest factor influencing your credit score.PAY THE BALANCE IN FULL EACH MONTH, IF POSSIBLE. Some people believe carrying a balance helps your credit score. It doesn’t — it just accrues interest. If you can’t pay in full, try paying more than the minimum.KEEP YOUR BALANCES BELOW 30 Per cent OF YOUR LIMIT. This applies to the balance on individual cards and the total across all your cards. Not using all of your available credit is good for your score, and the lower the better.___________________________________This column was provided to The Associated Press by the personal finance website NerdWallet.

Northern Gateway hearings to address marine emergency response

Canada has a good safety record. Having said that, there are important things we can learn from different jurisdictionsVANCOUVER — Despite years of planning for the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline and myriad legislative changes that will affect the project, the regulations and best practices from other jurisdictions where tankers tread have not been put in place for British Columbia, studies find.One review of legislation in Washington state, Alaska, Norway and other jurisdictions that see the type of tanker traffic that the West Coast can expect if the pipelines are approved found room for improvement.“Canada has a good safety record. Having said that, there are important things we can learn from different jurisdictions,” said Darryl Anderson, whose Wave Point Consulting has published several papers on the issues around the pipeline proposals in British Columbia.The shipping industry is well-regulated in Canada, Anderson found, but the maritime sector too often makes improvements in response to a critical incident, he said.Alaska, Washington and Norway “have a much more robust regulatory system and a much more robust assessment of risk prior to something happening, so you don’t just have to rely on a marine incident to bring about change.”In particular, Anderson and his colleague, Joe Spears, recommend an independent agency responsible for conducting oil spill risk assessments and directing investment in spill prevention and response.They suggest more stable funding for maritime policy measures, required emergency response drills, and the use of Canadian-flagged vessels for bulk oil transport.Enbridge experts will return to Prince Rupert, B.C., on Monday, to resume testimony under oath about the $6-billion dollar pipeline project.First up, they will be answering questions about one of the most contentious issues facing the Northern Gateway project: planning and response to marine oil spills.The company has committed to “extended responsibility” for emergency response along the marine transportation routes. That would include spill response capacity even in the event of third-party tanker spills, but extended responsibility would not include clean-up costs or compensation.“The tanker owner would remain the responsible party if a spill were to occur along the marine transportation routes,” Northern Gateway confirms in documents filed with the review panel.John Carruthers, president of Northern Gateway Pipelines, said the company has gone well beyond the regulatory requirements in order to ease concerns.“I think people have questions and from a project perspective we’re answering them. And I think there is recognition that some of the questions being asked are broader than any one project, and I think it’s appropriate for government to be looking at it from that broader perspective,” Carruthers said.Commitments have been put in place by government and the company to guard against incidents, including the use of marine pilots familiar with the local area, cutting-edge navigational systems, and spill response capacity that is more than three times the Canadian standard.“I think it’s important to look around the world and take best practices and that’s certainly what Northern Gateway has done,” Carruthers said, citing the commitment to marine spill response.“That’s not something a pipeline company would typically take on, but we did … beyond what’s required by regulation. We certainly have looked around the world to build on what’s being done elsewhere.”Opponents of the Northern Gateway proposal — as well as Kinder Morgan’s plan to double the capacity of its existing TransMountain pipeline from Alberta to Metro Vancouver — fear a catastrophic oil spill off the B.C. coast.It’s a huge concern, said Brenda Belak, a lawyer for West Coast Environmental Law.Industry funds totalling $1.3-billion may not suffice for clean up and compensation, she said.“Once the bitumen is offloaded onto a ship and the ship starts sailing out of the port, the pipeline operator is no longer responsible in that case. It’s the ship operator,” Belak said.It would be very difficult to hold the shipping company legally liable, she said.“Very few of them are registered in Canada.”There are means to ease concerns and ensure project safety, Anderson said, but the debate around the Northern Gateway project has become very polarized.“In these other jurisdictions, they have much more debate about the best practices and they don’t just get into good, bad, are you for it or against it? They have an understanding that there’s a trade-off involved and we’re not having any of that discussion in Canada.”The hearings in Prince Rupert continue on and off in Prince Rupert over the next four months. The joint review panel must submit its report to the federal government by the end of the year. read more

Student Malcolm Branson had the burners in Ohio State footballs fastest student

Fourth-year in criminology Malcolm Branson (right) celebrates with football operations coordinator Fernando Lovo after finishing tied for first in the first heat of the fastest student race. The race took place during halftime of the 2014 Spring Game April 12 at Ohio Stadium.Credit: Mark Batke / For The LanternAmid the hype surrounding the 2014 Ohio State football Spring Game, the fastest student race stole the show at Ohio Stadium.Wrapping up a competition that started March 26 at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center, five students got a chance to showcase their talent against members of the Buckeye football team in front of the 61,058 fans in attendance to see Urban Meyer’s squad in action for the first time since last fall.Student participants Malcolm Branson, Jacob Gifford, Collin Foltz, Mesiah Smith and Ben Hittner took their places against senior cornerback Doran Grant, redshirt-freshman wide receiver James Clark, sophomore H-back Dontre Wilson, sophomore punter Cameron Johnston and freshman kicker Sean Nuernberger.Branson, a fourth-year in criminology, said he and the other student contestants had a chance to get to know each other before competing.“We all hung out together before the race,” Branson said. “We had a good time.”After the first heat, it appeared as though Branson pulled away from the pack of students and players and was victorious, however the race was declared a tie between Branson and Grant. An ensuing “run-off” was announced.Grant was victorious in the “run-off,” and celebrated by performing a backflip near midfield after the race.“Me and James Clark were talking trash beforehand so I had to make sure I beat him. And then the student, he said he got me on the first one so we had the run-off to seal the deal,” Grant said after the Spring Game. “It was very fun, the whole team was around, the whole stadium was watching to see who is the fastest man on campus.”Meyer mentioned time and again during spring practice how he wants the OSU student body to “have ownership” of his program and get involved, attempting to do so with the fastest student competition and Student Appreciation Day April 5.“Well, I get a little upset … sometimes. Take away the students and I don’t have a job … our president doesn’t have a job,” Meyer said in an interview with The Lantern March 24. “All our focus around boosters and whomever, and I get that. But I’m never gonna, I want students on our side.”Meyer went on to joke that if a player did line up and beat speedsters in Wilson and others, the player would lose their scholarship. But even though it appeared that did happen Saturday, Branson, a graduate of Perry High School in Massillon, Ohio, and a former track runner, said after he wasn’t sure if he won the first race or not.“Initially, I didn’t know,” Branson said. “The video looked like I had it, but they said it was a tie.”Grant said Branson might have been the winner in the first heat.“He probably did, because I eased up (at the end),” Grant said.No matter the outcome, Branson said the event was worth it.“I enjoyed the experience, it was very fun,” Branson said. “I’m a little bit upset that I didn’t come up with the second win but it is what it is.”Branson said some of the OSU football players congratulated him after the race.“They told me, ‘I had the burners,’” Branson said.The race was aired live on the Big Ten Network as well as the game in which the Gray defeated the Scarlet, 17-7. read more

Wouldnt one increase have been enough Martin hits out at insurance levy

first_imgTHE FIANNA FÁIL leader today accused the Government of “making life unbearable” for middle-income families.Micheál Martin asked Taoiseach Enda Kenny if, in light of yesterday’s decision to increase the levy on private health insurance, the Government would increase the amount of tax relief available on policies.Martin said that Government policies were “driving people out of the private health insurance market”. Wasn’t one increase enough? Given everything that is happening in the health insurance market? Why are you hammering hard pressed families, who are of the view that they are paying for everything anyway? The Taoiseach hit back, accusing Martin of “denying reality” and advocating the abandonment of the risk equalisation scheme, which ensures that elderly policy holders pay the same as younger cohorts.“The objection of the Health Minister is to reform the health service, but to do so in a way that allows elderly people pay the same as younger people. Every year, 20,000 people reach the age of 65.”About 19 per cent of health insurance policy holders are 65 or older, the Taoiseach said, adding that community rating and risk equalisation must be protected.Martin said that he never advocated the policy change, but said that the “haemorrhage could not go on” if the sector was to be protected.“The centre will not hold if the haemorrhage continues. Meanwhile, you’re making life unbearable for hard-pressed families with this incoherent and ad-hoc policy.”In response, the Taoiseach said that younger insurers could not “have it every way”, saying that they had an advantage in having younger customers, who typically cost less to cover.Read: Health insurance levy will cost customers “up to 15 per cent”Read: Department of Health to increase cost of health insurance policieslast_img read more

Liverpool have already uncovered Man Citys weakness – Robertson

first_imgPrior to the first leg of the quarter-final clash of the Champions League between the Premier League teams, Andy Robertson gave his two bits on whether the Anfield side could possibly get the better of the Citizens.Considering Liverpool are the only team, who have so far been able to beat Manchester City in the Premier League, they might indeed find the inner strength to do so again and thus proceed further to the semi-finals of the league.“I think it will be such a hard game. It’s the quarter-finals of the Champions League and I think if we’d have got any of the teams it was never going to be easy,” Andy Robertson shared, according to Metro.norwich city, manchester city, premier leagueReport: City are stunned by Norwich George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Manchester City was stunned by Norwich City in todays Premier League clash.Much has been made in recent days of the potential impact of Aymeric…“It doesn’t get much harder than Man City, arguably one of the best teams in Europe just now. But we managed to get the better of them at Anfield a couple of months ago and if we can take anything out of that performance then we managed to show their weaknesses, especially in that 10 minutes when we scored three goals,” the Reds’ left-back stated.“But they also showed our weaknesses by scoring three goals, which obviously we weren’t happy with and in a two-legged tie that might not have been good enough.”last_img read more

Melco moves to placate Philippines shareholders as new tender offer date set

first_img 181 Chinese nationals arrested in dispute over POGO accreditation status Load More Melco International Development grants Evan Winkler HK$269 million share options Melco Resorts and Entertainment (Philippines) Corporation (MRP) will commence its tender offer to shareholders on 31 October 2018, it announced in a filing with the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) on Tuesday. But the company was quick to address a series of investor concerns over the matter, having last week been forced to reverse a previous decision to delist from the PSE.MRP revealed last Friday that it had formally withdrawn its application to delist, although it gave no reasons for doing so at the time. Philippines rejects China’s call to ban online gambling RelatedPosts The company has addressed those reasons in its latest filing on Tuesday, stating that the tender offer would no longer be conducted for the purpose of voluntary delisting MRP but instead be carried out to increase the shareholding of MRP’s controlling shareholder MCO (Philippines) Investments Limited.“The change of purpose for the tender offer, which led to the withdrawal of the petition to delist by MRP on 19 October 2018, is aimed at alleviating certain investors’ concerns that the potential delisting may exert undue pressure on their decision process related to the acceptance of the tender offer,” MRP said.“Investors are assured that they are free to conduct their evaluations and arrive at a decision whether to tender their shares at their absolute discretions.”However, MRP also reinforced its defense of the Php7.25 per share offer price per tender offer share following recent criticism that it was unfair because it was only around half of its initial share price in 2013.The company said there was a misconception that all MRP shareholders must agree with the terms of the tender offer, including the offer price, for it to proceed.“The tender offer is presented to ensure that MRP shareholders who find the offer price and other terms of the tender offer acceptable are not deprived of an opportunity to sell,” it said.“The bidder (MCO) would like to emphasize and remind MRP shareholders that not all MRP shareholders have to agree with and accept the terms of the tender offer … the bidder respects that certain MRP shareholders may have differing views on the terms of the tender offer, including the offer price.“If any MRP Shareholder does not believe that the offer price of Php7.25 per tender offer share is attractive, they may choose not to tender their MRP shares in the tender offer. Even if an MRP shareholder believes that the offer price is at or above fair value, they still have no obligation to participate in the tender offer.”MCO currently holds a 72.54% stake in MRP.last_img read more

It does, however, point to Kia’s continuing and admirable focus to making its cars genuinely fun to drive.While the GTS is ultimately made up of minor tweaks, the Stinger was already good enough to not need a reinvention. Instead, Kia is changing the fundamental behavior of the Stinger’s all-wheel-drive system, potentially offering a better balance between RWD behavior and AWD ability.As a self-proclaimed differential nerd, I find this stuff pretty exciting. It’s the sort of thing that most manufacturers overlook, installing wimpy, front-biased systems and then slapping an AWD badge on the trunk.

Subaru’s all-wheel-drive system is one of the better ones on the market, and the company’s finally figured out how to put together a decent infotainment setup, as well.While the Outback is something of a bridge between a station wagon and a typical crossover, this Subaru does “SUV” better than most of its segment’s more traditional players.

Nor would she disclose pricing but said the service is available as a site license for a flat annual fee.According to Hanley, one of TV Time’s network clients recently used the TVLytics tool as part of negotiating advertising deals. Ad buyers were undervaluing one of the network’s primetime shows compared with a competing program that had a slightly higher Nielsen rating. Using TVLytics, the network found that its own lower-rated show actually had higher engagement and more positive sentiment than the competitor, and used that to obtain higher ad rates.Meanwhile, how comfortable are TV Time’s users with the fact that the company is selling their data (albeit anonymized) to third parties? Hanley said the company is fully transparent with users about its business model. In fact, after it recently updated the app to comply with Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the additional disclosures about TV Time’s data-sharing practices turned out to actually improve engagement. “We thought we’d get blowback but it’s actually been positive,” Hanley said. Users “have the sense they are affecting the creation of TV shows.”TVLytics provides different categories of metrics including mobility (which devices fans are watching the show, including phones, tablets, computers or televisions, and how does that vary by content, genre or country); favorite characters; anticipation about new/returning shows; affinity (which competitive or similar shows fans of a series are also watching); bingeing (how quickly are shows being watched over a time period); social engagement (which shows fans share or post about most in their social feeds); and emotional response (how viewers react to specific episodes or different kinds of programming).The company’s current business model is a pivot from the original plan. It was founded in 2014 as Whipclip, whose app was designed as a social network for TV fans to share short, licensed clips of their favorite shows. That didn’t work because the startup had difficulty obtaining rights to clips; last year it changed its name to TV Time and migrated Whipclip users to the new app. The social features of the current app are based on tech developed by TVShow Time, a small Paris-based startup the company acquired in December 2016. Popular on Variety Startup TV Time is opening the kimono to its database with billions of fan reactions to television shows — to let TV networks, digital-video services and others take a deeper dive into the buzz about specific programs, characters, and episodes.The company’s new TVLytics platform provides a window into reactions to 60,000 shows, including on traditional TV and on subscription VOD services like Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and YouTube. The data is pulled from TV Time’s user base, which averages 750,000-1 million active users on a daily basis. The free app lets users track TV shows, get recommendations and vote in different categories for each program.The point of TVLytics isn’t to gauge total audience for a TV show, a la Nielsen ratings. Rather, TV Time’s TVLytics is designed to provide a read on what fans of a particular show are especially passionate about (or, by the same token, what they hate) and benchmark that against other content. TV Time’s listing data largely comes from open-source provider TheTVDB.com, supplemented with data from ColorTV-owned Guidebox, a provider of TV search and discovery metadata.TV Time has about 35 employees, most based at its Santa Monica, Calif., headquarters, with a three-person team in Paris who came from TVShow Time. the company has raised $60 million to date from investors include WME, Eminence Capital, IVP, Raine Ventures, Greycroft, and industry execs including Ari Emanuel, Peter Guber, Steve Bornstein, Scooter Braun, Gordon Crawford and Ron Zuckerman. The company is led by co-founder and CEO Richard Rosenblatt, former chief exec of Demand Media and chairman of Myspace.The TV Time app is available free to download from Apple’s App Store and Google Play Store. The app offers subscriptions for $1.99 monthly (or $11.99 yearly), which provides access to special features like custom posters, fan art and access to enhanced stats.Here’s a screenshot of TVlytics’ show view, displaying results for Netflix’s “GLOW”:center_img ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

The company has sold custom reports before, but now it’s selling self-serve access to the full TV Time database.What’s important to note: The data aggregated by TV Time is self-reported — it’s not a passive measurement service that tracks actual behavior. In addition, the app’s user base skews young, primarily comprising people 18-34. Another point: Only 10%-12% of its active users are in the U.S. The company is boosting its focus on increasing reach into the U.S., according to Reed.TV Time competes against other players that track social reaction to TV shows and viewing on OTT platforms, including Nielsen and specialty firms like 7Park Data and Canvs. TV Time’s execs say the company’s approach is different because its app collects first-party data (i.e., it’s not culling reactions from Facebook or Twitter) from highly engaged television viewers in real time. And compared to rivals, TV Time provides more fine-grained analysis, showing viewers’ emotional reaction to a series, episode, character, or specific moments in an episode.For example, TV Time’s data shows that fans of Netflix’s “GLOW” are most likely to also be interested in “Fleabag” (BBC/Amazon), “Barry” (HBO) and “Crazyhead” (E4/Netflix).“It’s a quantitative way to get at qualitative data,” said Carol Hanley, TV Time’s chief revenue officer. She joined the company last fall, after serving as CRO of Deluxe Entertainment Services Group.To date, TV Time has logged more than 10 billion data points from users about individual episodes, and it claims users check into the app more than 43 million times per month. According to Hanley, to data can help business users identify emerging trends, analyze competitors, and find new audiences, as well as to help inform casting, licensing and marketing decisions about shows.last_img read more

first_imgNews | August 11, 2008 BRICK Surgical Light Aims to be Compact, Affordable August 12, 2008 – The new LumitexMD “BRICK” medical grade light source from Lumitex Medical Devices Inc. provides bright white light reportedly for excellent surgical site visualization in a small, portable, affordable package.Using a 24-watt Solarc high-intensity arc lamp, the BRICK provides white light (5,500° K) in a very small package measuring 5.8 inches by 3.5 inches by 2.8 inches, with a light weight of 2.2 pounds (including power supply). The company said it is ideal in combination with LightMat, VersaLight, or a headlight in surgical centers where space and cost are key factors. The Brick’s optical design provides more than half the brightness of a typical 300-watt Xenon light source, at about one-quarter of the cost, said the company. The Brick uses a standard ACMI connector. A mounting clamp available from LumitexMD enables the BRICK to be attached to either an IV Pole or a surgical table accessory side rail. LumitexMD’s clamp mounting system locks the BRICK onto a small shelf and then clamps it securely to the IV Pole or surgical table. The mounting system’s design allows the mounting plate to be rotated so that the BRICK is always in the correct operating orientation on either IV Pole or surgical table. This system helps stabilize the unit and make it versatile enough for use in the OR, SurgiCenter, or a doctor’s office.

Kapil Sibal at the press conference on Friday.News18 We were hoping that the anguish of the judges as reflected in their statements to the press would be addressed by the Chief Justice and the Chief Justice in response would set his house in order More than three months have passed Nothing has changed Recent communications of two senior judges to the Chief Justice reveal that the Chief Justice has not asserted the independence of the judiciary in the face of interference by the executive When the judges of the Supreme Court themselves believe that the judiciary’s independence is under threat and democracy in peril alluding to the functioning of the office of the Chief Justice of India should the nation stand still and do nothing Should the people of this country allow the institution to diminish and not protect it both from within and without That is what we were confronted with when contemplating action to ensure the independence of the institution that protects the rights of citizens and is the arbiter of the fate of the democracy we cherish The choice was not easy because either way the repercussions are serious The Constitution allows only one recourse to remedy the situation Since there is no other way to protect the institution except to move an impeachment motion we members of the Rajya Sabha do so with a heavy heart We took upon ourselves to move the impeachment motion in the background set out above but on the basis of charges of acts of misbehaviour that are set out in the impeachment motion We do not wish to repeat those charges here in detail We only wish to state that any one occupying the office of the Chief Justice of India must be judged on the basis of the highest standards of integrity The charges as stated suggest conduct unbecoming of a person holding the office of the Chief Justice of India The first charge relates to the conspiracy to pay illegal gratification by persons in relation to the Prasad Education Trust case and the manner in which the case was dealt with by the ChiefJustice It is on record that the CBI has registered an FIR There are several recorded conversations between middlemen including a retired judge of the Orissa High Court excerpts of transcripts of which are set out in the articles of charge References to the Chief Justice by innuendo in these conversations are evident The denial of permission to the CBI to register an FIR against Justice Narayan Shukla of the Allahabad High Court when the CBI shared incriminating information with the Chief Justice was itself an act of misbehaviour All this requires a thorough investigation The second char relates to the Chief Justice having dealt on the administrative as well as on the judicial side with a writ petition which sought an investigation into the matter of Prasad Education Trust in which he too was likely to fall within the scope of investigation The practice in the Supreme Court is that when the Chief Justice is in a Constitution Bench and matters are to be listed requests for listing are made before the first puisne judge This is an age-old practice On 9 November 2017 when a writ petition was mentioned before Justice Chelameswar at 1030 am since the Chief Justice was sitting in a Constitution Bench the same was directed to be listed later the same day When the matter was taken up a note dated 6 November 2017 was placed before the judges hearing the matter by an official of the Registry This is the basis of the third charge alleging that the note of 6 November brought to the attention of Justice Chelameswar on 9 November as the matter was taken up was antedated The charge of antedating is by all accounts a very serious charge The fourth charge relates to the Chief Justice having acquired land when he was an advocate by giving an affidavit which was found to be false Further despite the orders of the ADM cancelling the allotment in 1985 the Chief Justice surrendered the land only in 2012 after he was elevated to the Supreme Court The fifth charge relates to the abuse of exercise of power by the Chief Justice in choosing to send sensitive matters to particular benches by misusing his authority as Master of the Roster with the likely intent to influence the outcome As representatives of the people we are entitled to hold the Chief Justice accountable just as we are
