In the world of financial technology, things can move quickly, and keeping up with the latest trends and activities can be a monumental task. One of the latest and most promising industry trends is the use of blockchain, a shared digital ledger of transactions.What is blockchain?Blockchain first came to recognition as the foundation of the cryptocurrency bitcoin. Bitcoin uses blockchain to structure, verify, and keep track of all bitcoin data. Blockchain is made up of blocks of transactions chained together and shared with the entire network. In the credit union world, the blocks are essentially transaction statements, chained in chronological order and visible to all participants in that banking system. A blockchain serves as a full digital ledger of all transactions.Blockchain securityWhile blockchain may be used to assist and increase efficiencies in a number of industries, blockchain’s tamper-proof security offers huge advantages to credit unions in particular. Due to blockchain’s cryptography, data validation requirements, and time stamps, it’s next to impossible to manipulate data in a blockchain. Data entered in a block cannot be changed, and transactions cannot be reversed. When blocks are added to the chain, another layer of security makes it even more unlikely anybody could disrupt any portion of the data. Here’s how blockchain keeps financial information safe:Blockchain distributes information on a need-to-know basis. Detailed financial information is available only to the parties involved in a specific transaction.General ledger information about every transaction is available to the entire network, providing transparency and the opportunity for all network members to verify that transactions are handled correctly. Each network participant is able to change its own data only; since no member is able to change the overall ledger, all participants enjoy the highest level of security.How credit unions can use blockchainThere are a number of potential uses for blockchain technology in credit unions:Credit unions could realize substantial savings in staff hours, audits, and document storage requirements by using blockchain’s digital ledger in place of their own transaction records.Blockchain could be used to make retail payments and payments between countries faster, more efficient, and more secure.Blockchain’s ledger and detailed transaction data could be used to verify the sale and purchase of securities.The future of blockchain in credit unionsIf you’re investigating blockchain or considering using blockchain technology in your credit union, you’re in good company. According to a report by IBM, 15% of banks expect to use blockchain commercially this year. Blockchain may provide a smart way to cut costs while retaining the records required in the highly regulated credit unions world. In a study of eight top world banks, Accenture suggested that blockchain may help banks cut operational costs by 30%!

This follows several weeks of work between the Wolf Administration and the legislature that culminated in a bi-partisan agreement that will modernize and strengthen environmental protections at oil and gas sites in Pennsylvania. The Office of the Attorney General will now review the regulations. The governor also announced that his administration will work with the legislature to draft conventional Chapter 78 regulations to which all sides can agree.“I am pleased to have reached bi-partisan agreement with the legislature on the unconventional oil and gas regulations, which will better protect the health of our environment and our residents,” said Governor Wolf. “These new safeguards further my goal of improving the protection of water and public resources, as well as public health and safety, and also address landowner concerns, enhance transparency, and improve data management. These regulations have been under development for more than five years, through three separate administrations and have benefited from an unprecedented process of engagement and public participation. I would like to thank both Democrats and Republicans for working together with me, and for the commitment both sides showed to ensuring our environment and our people are safe.”These regulations aim to assure the protection of public health, safety, and the environment, and were developed after extensive engagement with the industry and unprecedented public participation including:20 Advisory Board and Committee meetings.2 public comment periods.135 days of public comment opportunity.12 public hearings.Nearly 28,000 comments received.Since taking office, Governor Wolf has fought for stronger environmental protections and taken measures to fight climate change.

The biggest challenge from the impending sulphur cap regulation and the industry’s decarbonization ambitions for engine makers is the decision on which fuel will be used, according to Wayne Jones OBE, Chief Sales Officer and Member of the Executive Board of MAN Energy Solution.Speaking at the 4th annual Naftemporiki Shipping Conference, held in Athens on October 3, 2018, Jones said that the issue of the fuel choice is a question of picking a fuel that doesn’t only meet the regulations of today, but those of tomorrow as well.“What will everyone use in the future or will there be a myriad of fuels? For me, the only way forward is to go with gaseous fuels – and the infrastructure will follow in due course,” Jones said.“MAN Energy Solutions believes fully in its technology, to the extent that we pledge to subsidize the first 10 shipowners that convert their engines to LNG or a gas-derived fuel – up to a cumulative total of EUR 2 million – because I think someone has to stimulate the industry to think more holistically and long-term.”The company believes that it is time for the maritime industry to find clean, decarbonized solutions for seaborne trade and transportation. The best way of doing so, according to MAN, is to establish natural gases as the fuels of choice in global shipping.The company strongly promotes a global ‘turn to gas’, driven by the IMO, and a common approach by the shipping industry and politics to invest in infrastructure development and retrofits.MAN Energy Solutions’ entire portfolio of dual-fuel engines, all running on clean fuels such as LNG and LPG, has secured almost 400 projects in total so far, the company said.
Liverpool legend, John Barnes, believes there still exists a significant problem in football about the treatment of black managers in football. Loading… Earlier this week and in light of the Black Lives Matter movement, Raheem Sterling claimed racism is “the only disease right now”. The Manchester City star also questioned the number of opportunities afforded to BAME managers in the game, using Sol Campbell and Ashley Cole as examples. Sterling argued they had not been offered the same chance as their peers Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard. Now Barnes has shared his thoughts on the unconscious bias that surrounds black managers football. He believes there is a stigma that is more damaging to the game than the obvious racism from supporters that we see in the terraces. “I managed at Celtic in 1999 and Tranmere in 2008, nothing has changed in that time,” Barnes told BonusCodeBets. “We’re just pretending this is just something new, that black managers can’t get jobs. Nothing has changed. I don’t think, as a society, we have changed our perception as to whether a black manager is capable of being a good manager, we must change it in society. “Here’s a question. Can a black man make a good manager? That question in itself is a racist question, I’ll tell you why, because it presupposes that there’s a possibility that a black man can’t be a good manager, because he is black. When people answer that question, a lot of people say ‘Well, I don’t know.’ ‘I don’t know’ is a racist answer. Because if I ask somebody, ‘Can a man jump out of a plane without a parachute, and fly?’ The answer is no, because he knows 100% that he can’t. If he said, ‘I don’t know’. He in his mind would think, yes, there’s a possibility that he would fly but he can’t, so he would say ‘I don’t know’. read also:Barnes, Vardy doubles put Iheanacho’s Leicester back on track “So, with ‘I don’t know’, it means that in your own mind, you think there’s a possibility, that a black man cannot be a good manager because he is black. And that’s a problem. Society isn’t sure, which then shows that they do have a perception in their mind, that it is a possibility a black man could not be a good manager. So that’s obviously racist. “But it shows the unconscious bias that people have, that stops not just black managers, but black people getting on in life. The unconscious bias affects not just black people negatively, it also affects women. Can a woman be a good manager, we don’t know? Can a gay person fight in a war, we’re not sure? Why aren’t we sure? “It then shows that we have a bias in relation to whether we believe they can do that job. And it’s not just the real racist, who have that opinion, the most articulate opinion, and that is the biggest problem in football. Not the obvious racists or the obvious racism towards black players or black managers, it’s everybody. “ FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Promoted ContentSome Impressive And Almost Shocking Robots That Exist5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme ParksThis Guy Photoshopped Himself Into Celeb Pics And It’s HystericalBest Car Manufacturers In The WorldCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable Way6 Interesting Ways To Make Money With A DroneWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?8 Amazing Facts About Ancient EgyptThis Guy Photoshopped Himself Into Celeb Pics And It’s HystericalA Guy Turns Gray Walls And Simple Bricks Into Works Of ArtWhat Are The Most Delicious Foods Out There?Top 10 Enemies Turned Friends In TV
