His keynote address at a CEO/Director meeting focused on CUNA’s efforts to advocate, unify, advance and promote the credit union industry.“Credit unions in the U.S. have seen many positive trends in 2018 – from membership growth to increased financial benefits for both members and non-members,” Nussle said. “The credit union difference is our cooperative superpower. It’s our best asset, our competitive advantage, and it extends across the globe.”Last year credit unions provided more than $16 billion in benefits to American consumers, members and non-members alike.

Division threatens Premier League’s chances of comeback

first_imgLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Warring Premier League clubs will meet on Monday with tensions mounting over the divisive ‘Project Restart’ plan to finish the season amid the coronavirus crisis.Premier League chiefs hope to return to action in June, but that goal could be scuppered by an internal battle between clubs fiercely protecting their own interests.The Premier League delayed their latest meeting until after British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s address to the nation on Sunday.But, for those clubs and players concerned about the rush to return, Johnson’s admission that the virus transmission rate is still too high to significantly ease Britain’s lockdown until at least June 1 was hardly reassuring.Johnson offered no details about the Premier League’s short-term future and indicated that while the general population will be allowed to play sports from Wednesday, they must do so only with those in their own households.And the growing unease about the Premier League’s desire to finish their remaining 92 fixtures only increased on Sunday when Brighton admitted a third player in their squad had contracted the virus.The scheduled return of Germany’s Bundesliga from May 16 had raised hopes that the Premier League could follow suit, yet there are stark differences between the health crisis in both countries.Britain’s death toll from the pandemic passed 30,000 this week to become the worst hit country in Europe.By contrast, Germany has registered just over 7,000 deaths.However, German second tier club Dynamo Dresden have put their entire squad and coaching staff into two-week isolation after two players tested positive for the virus.Also on Sunday, La Liga confirmed five unnamed players have the virus and will go into quarantine.Brighton chief executive Paul Barber has been one of the more vocal critics of the restart scheme and he told the Mail on Sunday: “We have got to be careful that we do not misstep here because if we do, it could ruin lives. It could cost lives. And we cannot afford that.”Testing and player welfare remain major hurdles to overcome, with Norwich midfielder Todd Cantwell summing up the feelings of worried players when he responded to the positive test at Brighton by tweeting: “We are just people too”.– ‘Huge challenge’ – A lack of unity has provoked another complication for the Premier League over the use of neutral venues.League chiefs believe they will only get the government’s green light to restart if the number of venues are limited to reduce the medical, police, security and broadcast personnel required.There are also fears over fans congregating at home stadiums, even though the matches would be played behind closed doors.Leading the resistence to neutral venues are clubs near the bottom of the table and at risk of huge financial losses by dropping out of England’s lucrative top-flight.Brighton had five of their remaining nine games at home, while Aston Villa were due to play six of their last 10 matches at Villa Park.“What we can’t accept is a fundamental change to the competition three-quarters of the way through,” Barber said.“That is not fair and there is absolutely nobody who will convince me otherwise.”Villa’s chief executive Christian Purslow said giving up home advantage “is a massive decision”.Seven of the 20 top-flight clubs would need to officially reject neutral venues to stop the plan going ahead, although it has been reported the issue won’t be put to a vote on Monday.The UEFA deadline for restart proposals is May 25 and League Managers Association chief executive Richard Bevan has warned a failure to reach consensus soon could see the season cancelled.Aware of the animosity between clubs, Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish conceded it won’t be easy to restart in the current climate.“It may prove beyond us. We have huge challenges in order to get it back to complete the season but we are planning on doing so,” Parish told the BBC.“There are no easy answers. We have to work through it as a collective. I think we will come out with a consensus in the end.”Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

TEAM332163.61915.7913.013.02276.7 The Steelers first prime time game of the season takes them to Cincinnati to take on an old division foe, the Cincinnati Bengals.Both teams come into the matchup at 0-1 and already in desperate need of a win in order to avoid the dreaded 0-2 start.  The Bengals lost to the Bears last week but looked like a decent football team in doing so.On the other hand, the Steelers lost at home to the Titans and looked like a Pee Wee team, unable to accomplish anything on the offensive side of the ball. In order for the black and gold to come out of Cincinnati with a win on Monday Night, they’ll need to play a lot better than what they showed us to open the season.Here are the Steelers Keys to Victory:1. The team must figure out a way to run the ball.  They put up a total of 32 rushing yards in week 1 and that’s never going to be enough to win. Isaac Redman needs to find the holes sooner and the offensive line needs to open up those holes more often.2. It goes without saying but the team has to protect Big Ben. He was knocked around all game long against the Titans and if they want to have any chance against a ferocious Bengal defense (see an angry James Harrison) then they must keep Ben upright.3. The defense must find a way to stop AJ Green. He’s an elite receiver and Ike Taylor should be matched up against him all game long. That said, Taylor may not be enough. It could take double coverage to stop Green who’s been tearing up the league since he arrived in 2011.4. The black and gold need to avoid penalties. In recent years the team has been penalized at an alarming rate and during crucial points in the game. They have to keep their composure against the hated Bengals and stay disciplined. The Bengals are talented enough these days (I can’t believe I just wrote that but it’s reality) and they don’t need any additional help.A Few Things To Watch This Week:1. James Harrison-Everyone is saying the right thing. Harrison and the Steelers say there are no hard feelings but that’s not the truth. Harrison is angry and he wants to take it out on the black and gold with a vengeance.  He’s going to be gunning for Big Ben and he’s going to be revved up for this one.  It could be a very dangerous combination.  2. Fernando Velasco-The team just signed him off the street and he should be starting at center for the Steelers on Monday Night. He wasn’t a bad pickup at all, he was rated as the 11th best center in the NFL in 2012 so Pittsburgh is fortunate to have landed him after Pouncey was lost for the season but will he be able to start and play effectively after only a few days of practice?3. The running game-They should be embarrassed after their efforts last week, putting up a feeble 32 yards. They have something to prove and they need to get it rolling immediately. It will be interesting to see what kind of a role the newly re-signed Jonathan Dwyer plays for this team. He appears to be the most talented back on the active roster and should probably have never been released in the first place.4. Kion Wilson-Who? Kion Wilson. He’s the new starting inside linebacker of the Pittsburgh Steelers now that Larry Foote is done for the year. Wilson was out of football last season and is now not only starting for the black and gold but he’s expected to communicate the defensive play calls to the rest of the group.  Is Wilson able to do what’s needed?
