By Dialogo June 20, 2011 To mark the end of their assignment as Partner Nation Liaison Officers (PNLOs) representing Colombia, Uruguay, and Canada, General Douglas Fraser, Commander of the U.S. Southern Command, presided over an award ceremony on 17 June to honor the departing officers. “Having the Partner Nation Liaison Officers in SOUTHCOM allows us to recognize the partnerships we have and represents the importance of our partnerships,” said Gen. Fraser as he presented a Joint Service Meritorious Award to each of the departing country representatives. Captain Hugo M. De Barros, of the Uruguayan Navy, served SOUTHCOM from July 2009 to July 2011and was instrumental in furthering military relations between the United States and the Republic of Uruguay. Cpt. De Barros expertly assisted the SOUTHCOM Commander with strategic-level visits by the Uruguayan Government and Ministry of Defense to the United States and provided vital assessment on Uruguayan strategic posture. “For an old sailor like me, who is sailing the last miles in his career, this recognition has a huge emotional impact,” said Cpt. De Barros upon receipt of his award. “I have found I started referring to SOUTHCOM as ‘us’ instead of ‘you all’.” Gen. Fraser highlighted that Cpt. De Barros is a third-generation sailor and belongs to the only Uruguayan family to have four consecutive generations serve their country’s Navy, with his son currently serving as Lieutenant at the Uruguayan Navy. Colonel Oscar O. Lopez of the Colombian Army served as PNLO from July 2010 to July 2011, and distinguished himself by providing valuable insight to the military strategies of both countries, resulting in enhanced mutual understanding vital to the strengthening of the partnership between the United States and Colombia against Counter-Illicit Trafficking and Narco-Terrorism. “It was your perspective and willingness to share and tell us how we can improve our participation in helping Colombia’s fight against the FARC, that makes the difference to us,” commended Gen. Fraser, upon presenting Col. Lopez’s award. “The enormous support you [SOUTHCOM] give us [Colombia] positions you as one of our strongest allies and a great friend,” said Col. Lopez. Lieutenant Colonel James D. Waddell, of the Canadian Expeditionary Force Command, was the longest serving PNLO at SOUTHCOM, serving in Miami since September 2006 to July 2011. “Lt. Col. Waddell welcomed me to SOUTHCOM,” said Gen. Fraser. “He is one of the longest serving members at the Command, even more so than many of our U.S. servicemen.” “I have dedicated close to 25 percent of my military career to working with the U.S. Military. …My experience during the last five years in SOUTHCOM has been wonderful; it has been an education, both professional and personal,” acknowledged Lt. Col. Waddell. In addition to SOUTHCOM personnel, the families of all three representatives were in attendance to bid them farewell, along with Consul General of Colombia Alvaro Gallardo and representative of the Canadian consul, Mr. Paul Cunningham.

The World Council of Credit Unions is working with a number of organizations to bring relief to Nepal, where a 7.9 magnitude earthquake struck Saturday and an aftershock hit Sunday, killing thousands and reducing buildings and infrastructure to rubble.Nearly 30 of the 75 districts in Nepal have been designated as crisis zones, as many people are still believed to be trapped under collapsed buildings in dense areas, or stuck in rural and mountainous areas, which, including Mount Everest, have experienced deadly avalanches.World Council is communicating with the Nepal Federation of Savings and Credit Cooperative Unions (NEFSCUN) and the Association of Asian Confederation Credit Unions to coordinate fundraising efforts to aid employees and members of local credit unions, known in Nepal as savings and credit cooperative societies.Rather than activating CUAid–a program organized by the National Credit Union Foundation to specifically help credit unions and their members–the foundation is asking that all funds be directed to the World Council’s efforts. continue reading » 8SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr

US Department of Labor continue reading » The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) this week approved the Department of Labor’s request to delay the effective date by 18 months, to July 1, 2019. CUNA sent several comment letters during the rulemaking process pushing for the delay, to give credit unions extra time to resolve any additional compliance challenges.The rule defines who is a fiduciary of an employee benefit plan.In addition to the delay, CUNA supports additional research efforts to ensure credit union members are not harmed by the unintended consequences of overly broad rules, and additional analysis into whether the rule may limit choices for moderate or low-income consumers. 14SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
Shining resilience in action. Pictured: Danielle Cruz, Tansley Stearns, Liz Webb (my mom), MacKenzie StearnsAll of us face challenges. Those challenges happen to us and sadly, they also happen to the people we love. My mom, Liz Webb, has Crohn’s disease. Her journey through this health challenge has been agonizing. It took us years to find a diagnosis. Along the way, her doctor of more than 30 years “fired” her, not believing that there was an issue. She has undergone unnecessary surgeries. She has gone weeks without eating. She has lost many pounds. She has learned to survive on a fairly restrictive and cautious diet. She has felt isolated, lonely, frustrated, and scared. Despite the struggle, if you had the opportunity to meet her today, you would encounter a vibrant, positive, smiling woman. My mother emanates resilience. Resilience also matters to our credit unions. As organizations, we face tremendous pressure and mounting challenges. Even with vision, extraordinary passion, exceptional teams, and operational mastery, bad days happen. New regulations are enacted. Talent can be hard to find, attract, and retain. Consumers demand more desiring advice, exceptional experiences, and ease of use. The competitive landscape has never been more complex. The broader world and economy presents uncertainties. Beyond the strategic, sometimes we just have a rotten day. The best organizations find a way to grow resilience. They experience the challenge, they face it head on, they learn from it, and they find their way through to a better place. That likely seems intuitive, but how do we move from knowing that resilience matters to our teams to providing mechanisms and a purposeful approach to building resiliency that sustains and supports our scaling credit unions?According to Harvard Business Review’s, “The 4 Things Resilient Teams Do,” resilient teams have these things common:“They believe they can effectively complete tasks togetherThey share a common mental model of teamworkThey are able to improvise, andThey trust one another and feel safe.”To help ensure these resilient teams grow in our organizations, we must invest in developing psychological safety. According to Google’s “Guide: Understand team effectiveness,” psychological safety, “refers to an individual’s perception of the consequences of taking an interpersonal risk…and in a team with high psychological safety, teammates feel safe to take risks around their team members.” Why invest in this effort? It drives bottom line results. According to Dr. Ranga Ramanujam’s, piece “Fostering psychological safety in collaborative work pays off,” “At Google, individuals in teams with higher psychological safety brought in more revenue, were more likely to stay at Google, more likely to incorporate their teammates’ ideas in formulating proposals, and received significantly higher performance ratings from executives.”In my observation of my mom, her experience through the challenges of Crohn’s, and what we can apply as we build more resilient credit union teams, we can follow what I term the “REBOUND” model:R – Reel. One of my favorite Cameron Crowe movies, “Elizabethtown,” includes this line, “You have five minutes to wallow in the delicious misery. Enjoy it, embrace it, discard it. And proceed.” Reeling is about experiencing the pain. Feeling it deeply. For my mom, this was mourning the loss of living a life without chronic illness. It was enduring the frustration when simply going out to dinner. It included asking for special options that wouldn’t cause a flare-up. We have to feel the pain to move on from it. Whether it is change we create at the credit union or change that has been created by others, human beings struggle as things adjust. Just as when we grieve, we have to experience the feelings we have, or we can’t move past them. In our credit unions we can support one another as we reel. Some individuals experience changes and move on rapidly. Others may need more time. Understanding how and at what pace each of us moves through our “reeling” is crucial. E – Engage Your Tribe. Some of our reeling may be internal and we may need time and space. We will also need the support of our tribes. As my mom’s journey has progressed, her tribe includes friends who check on her, it includes family members who have helped drive her to treatments, and it has included me being the “heavy” with her doctors when we aren’t making progress. Our tribes know us, understand our foibles and love us without question. Sometimes this tribe may be a part of our credit union. Other times, our tribe may be friends or family that have no connection to our organizations. Either way, making sure that each individual on our teams have an opportunity to engage those people who know them, love them, and bring them comfort is crucial. B – Brainpower Boost. Once we’ve felt all that we need to and we’ve engaged our tribes to feel supported, our brains are ready to learn and bring in the power of other brains. In the case of my mom’s illness, this took us years. However, we have finally found a doctor who is an expert in digestive illnesses. Her expertise has brought my mom relief through treatment options and it has brought her peace of mind knowing she has someone with answers in her corner. In our credit unions, these experts might be internal and sometimes they may be external resources we rely on to help us gain knowledge that can inform what’s next. We can enhance the power of the whole credit union by bringing in individuals with experiences that fill the gaps in our experience.O – One foot in front of the other. Forward motion helps. At some point, we have to stand back up after our frustration and disappointment has been expressed, we’ve leaned on our tribe, and we’ve learned all we can and move into the next day. For my mom, sometimes this means finding a way, even when weak, to make it to church on Sunday. Sometimes it means going to dinner with a group of her former colleagues, even when she can’t order a meal. Sometimes it means making a trip from Michigan to Colorado to visit her family. Her doctor has shared with her this advice, “Live your life.” The same is true for our teams. Whether we’ve experienced disappointment, loss, or simply are adjusting to a changing world, we have to focus on serving our members. Moving forward, doing something, helps our brains adjust to our new normal. It also helps us feel like we are accomplishing something, even if it is small.U – Understand good still exists. When we experience change and loss it can feel hopeless. Some weeks, months and even years can feel like a pile on. During the early days of my mom’s experience with Crohn’s, we felt that exhaustion. I know my mom wondered if she would ever “get her life back.” Despite this, she has a magical ability to see the good, and I’ve watched her celebrate small wins like moving from eating only squash soup to adding in English muffins. In our credit unions, as leaders, we can influence our teams’ abilities to see the good that exists by catching them doing things well and elevating the wins that occur. Especially as those wins relate to the changes we are carrying forward, engaging with small successes helps change our collective mindset to a more positive view.N – Never give up. Persistence matters. There is also a reason that “never give up” comes nearly at the end of the REBOUND model. We have to have strength to persist. Today, as my mom has learned, grown, and experienced the ups and downs of Crohn’s, it is easier than it was at the beginning to push through. With support, knowledge, small wins, and progress, it was easier for her to handle the next obstacle, knowing that she had launched over the last. As our teams feel our support, observe us standing with them through the tough times, and experience their own ability to weather change and challenges, they will grow their persistence muscles and insist that there is not any hurdle they can’t gracefully avoid or leap over.D – Distract. Despite all of our best efforts, some days are dark. Throughout my mom’s illness, in order to receive treatment, she has had to go through testing and periods of waiting for test results to return in order for treatment plans to be put in place. The days and nights are long, tedious, and overwhelming. Sometimes the only answer is a Netflix binge or a long phone call to talk about what is happening with her granddaughter. As leaders, sometimes we have to build in some distractions and relief for our teams. It can be as simple as organizing a potluck or inviting a conversation that isn’t work related. Distraction can be a simple and important tool for helping all of us deal with the intensity of change.All of our worlds are changing rapidly. In order for our credit unions to win the war for talent, create value for our members, and grow to provide even stronger impact for the hard-working people we serve, we must build resilient organizations. My mom has inspired me her whole life. In the last eight years, as she has found her way through a debilitating disease, and she has inspired me even more. Let her example inspire you to lead using the REBOUND model to overcome challenges, develop resilience, and make your credit union team even stronger. 48SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Tansley Stearns Tansley is a dynamic force of nature, fiercely crusading on behalf of all credit unions while tirelessly driving forward the brand image and family spirit of Canvas.

Tracey Stack and Emma Nancarrow at 12 Parry St.BELGIAN GARDENS is becoming one of Townsville’s most in-demand suburbs with houses staying on the market for an average of only 20 days.Properties in the seaside suburb sell quicker than any other suburb in Townsville with the average days on the market well below the Townsville-wide average of 68 days, according to Core Logic figures.Homes in Belgian Gardens also fetch higher prices with the median house price sitting at $475,000 compared to the Townsville median house price of $340,000.Smith & Elliott agents Tracey Stack and Emma Nancarrow are selling several Belgian Gardens properties including 12 Parry St, which is listed for $869,000.They said properties in Belgian Gardens tended to receive strong interest from buyers and didn’t stay on the market for long.“It’s a really cool, breezy suburb and you get lovely breezes straight off the ocean and there is a lot of really good-sized blocks and different types of houses,” Ms Stack said.“Homes there are very popular and they don’t tend to sit on the market for a long time.“The Belgian Gardens State School has a lot to do with it as well because you’re in the catchment area,” Ms Nancarrow said.More from news01:21Buyer demand explodes in Townsville’s 2019 flood-affected suburbs12 Sep 202001:21‘Giant surge’ in new home sales lifts Townsville property market10 Sep 2020The city-fringe suburb is within walking distance of The Strand and is home to many stately Queenslanders, some of which have undergone dramatic renovations.About 1935 people live in the suburb and it is popular with families, with 65.2 per cent of homes being family households.The median age in the suburb is 38 while 19.1 per cent of residents are under the age of 15.Ms Stack said 12 Parry St was a prime example of a beautiful Belgian Gardens home that had been extensively renovated and she expected it to be popular with buyers.The six-bedroom, three-bathroom home sprawls over two levels and features large living areas, a pool, fire pit and a kitchenette.“This property has been built to the highest specs and it’s got so many extras like a television in the outdoor living area by the pool, another television up on the deck,” she said.“It would suit a family or someone looking for a dual living arrangement because there is a kitchenette downstairs with an under-bench oven, cooktop and room for a fridge.“There aren’t many houses we come across that have these amenities and such large-sized living areas.”
133 The Peninsula, Helensvale.“The house itself has quite a luxurious style. There are two big voids and the one towards the back of the house gives the main bedroom water views. It spills in and it is beautiful.” Mrs Kitto said the guest suite had come in handy to accommodate family and friends visiting from Sydney. 133 The Peninsula, Helensvale.A modern colour palette combines with soaring ceilings and trendy finishes throughout the home, while the ensuite in the main bedroom oozes luxury with a freestanding bathtub. “We are moving to another waterfront house on the northern end of the Gold Coast,” Mrs Kitto said. 133 The Peninsula, Helensvale.“It is located on a cul-de-sac and the kids play in the frontyard without having to worry about a lot of traffic going past. We really didn’t have to compromise when we moved here.” The mother of two said the family had taken advantage of their waterfront position.“We love to fish and throw out crab pots,” she said. 133 The Peninsula, Helensvale.“We were really excited to find a waterfront home that could fit our boat and caravan and … still had space for a swimming pool and the kids’ cubby house,” Mrs Kitto said.

ANTONIA MERCORELLA Prior to the pandemic, Queensland was already on the relocation wishlists of many interstate buyers.Now, with many people now working remotely, the experts believe they may soon make that move a reality. “Prior to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, Queensland was the number one destination for interstate relocations – particularly from major metropolitan areas such as Sydney and Melbourne,” Ms Mercorella said.“As this pandemic continues to affect us all, it’s introduced many of us to the possibility of a ‘new normal’ way of working – that is, remotely from home. “And spending more time at home is seeing more people considering their options. More from news01:21Buyer demand explodes in Townsville’s 2019 flood-affected suburbs12 Sep 202001:21‘Giant surge’ in new home sales lifts Townsville property market10 Sep 2020“As a result, interstate demand continues to strengthen in Queensland with the main drawcards being affordability, liveability and the lifestyle on offer. “We anticipate this demand to surge in the coming year ahead as we navigate through to the other side of this pandemic.”But its not just interstate migration that could boost the Queensland property market, Mr Pressley believes economic policies will take centre stage in the lead-up to Queensland election on October 31.“The 17.7 per cent increase in the state’s population over the decade ending 2019 was the second highest in Australia,” he said. “Unfortunately, the state’s unemployment rate was above the national average for all of the decade and this directly influenced underwhelming real estate markets right across Queensland. “We are currently in a state election year and economic policy is certain to play a key role for both the election result and Queensland property markets.”And first home buyers appear to already reaping the rewards thanks to a boost in grants.Ms Mercorella said the number of first home buyers jumping onto the property ladder had remained “relatively steady” in the first quarter of the year, despite a sharp drop in new listings and overall real estate transactions.“With post quarterly data showing moderate market stability, what we’ve witnessed is a strong increase in first homebuyer commitments,” she said. “In fact, in Queensland they’ve literally doubled over the last three months, rising from 1501 in April to 3079 in May and 3023 June. “These figures show that first-home buyers are possibly set to dominate the market for the first time in a long while – which is thanks to a combination of government stimulus, low interest rates, a change in investor behaviour and a rise in the rates of vacancy in rental properties.”Data held by realestate.com.au also shows that Queenslanders are currently the most confident about buying and selling in the nation.She said this was likely due to the state’s low levels of COVID-19 cases.“And perhaps the realisation that Queensland is a pretty nice place to be if you’re going to be locked down,” she said.Ms Conisbee said first home buyers are currently the most active market in Queensland, with first homebuyer inquiries having doubled compared to last year. For existing housing, the realestate.com.au data showed that high-end, premium markets were also holding up well, and likely being driven by a “flight to quality” and the fact that job losses have been less felt by white collar workers.Ms Conisbee said that investor activity remained slow and had dropped since last year, according to REA data. “This will be the toughest market over the next 12 months,” she said. SIMON PRESSLEY NERIDA CONISBEE “Townsville is Australia’s largest city north of Brisbane, 14th largest overall, and the nation’s military capital. “From the recently developed Cowboys NRL stadium, to new hotels, expansions of university and port infrastructure, a few major renewable energy projects and an expanding manufacturing sector, there’s a lot happening in Townsville. “The local property market started to gain momentum in mid-2019 and this has continued throughout 2020. “The first homebuyer market is taking advantage of good quality houses for under $400,000 while general activity among owner-occupiers is solid.” Head of research at Propertyology, Simon Pressley. Real Estate Institute of Queensland CEO Antonia Mercorella Picture: Richard Walker“The Townsville housing market was continuing its steady recovery at the commencement of this year – and it appears that state of play has continued over the first quarter. “The median house price posted a small price reduction of 0.8 per cent with prices slightly lower, down 1.6 per cent over the year. “The Townsville median house price for the year ending March was $315,000 – one of the most affordable in the state.“The Townsville unit market also posted a small median price drop in the March quarter – down two per cent to just $235,000. “Over the year ending March, its median unit price reduced by 1.8 per cent to $240,000. “The region’s unit market remains challenging with prices yet to start firming in a significant way. “Furthermore, in the nearby Whitsunday region, its heavy reliance on tourism is likely to impact both the house and unit markets over the medium term.”“As for the rental market, the Townsville vacancy rate was 2.9 per cent at the end of March.“And all indicators seem to point to tighter conditions in three months’ time. “The volume of advertised rental properties has been steadily falling each month this year, with the number available now down about one third since the start of 2020. “The insulated nature of the local economy has meant that the region’s rental market hasn’t suffered the same fate as many other locations it seems.” Townsville floods.

Loading… Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is good enough friends with Carlo Ancelotti to consider inviting him to a party at his house but would not do so because of the difficulty it may cause the new Everton boss. Instead, Klopp is only interested in making things difficult on the pitch for his opposite number in the away dugout in Sunday’s FA Cup Merseyside derby. Since the 5-2 defeat in their league meeting at Anfield a month ago – a result which cost Marco Silva his job – the Toffees’ fortunes have improved under caretaker boss Duncan Ferguson and now permanent manager Ancelotti. Ancelotti, as the then coach of Napoli, is the only manager to this season beat one of Klopp’s full-strength teams, in the Champions League back in September. So while this weekend’s meeting will be cordial, it will also be competitive. “We used to be (good friends),” Klopp joked. “We didn’t see each other a lot, it is strange that we both feel like this, we’ve met around games and meetings as managers. “When he came here I thought ‘If I had a party could I invite the Everton manager as he lives just around the corner?’. “I am not sure where he lives but the house next to me is free and that would be really funny (if he moved in). “I am not on social media but if I took a picture like this (with him) and sent it out, I don’t know how exactly that would look to the outside world, but I would not bring him into this kind of situation. “I only want to bring him difficulties on the pitch and we always respect each other.” Promoted Content9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A TattooA Hurricane Can Be As Powerful As 10 Atomic Bombs7 Universities In The World Where Education Costs Too MuchIs This The Most Delicious Food In The World?10 Risky Jobs Some Women DoMind-Bending Technology That Was Predicted Before It AppearedTop 7 Best Car Manufacturers Of All TimeWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend BetterCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable Way10 Hyper-Realistic 3D Street Art By Odeith8 Addictive And Fun Coffee Facts They are unbeaten in five of their seven matches – and one of the defeats was a penalty shoot-out loss to Leicester in the Carabao Cup – and their players look rejuvenated. “That’s management. It doesn’t say anything bad about Marco Silva, it is just things are like this from time to time,” added Klopp. “But Carlo Ancelotti is one of the smartest people I ever met and he wouldn’t have taken the job if he was not convinced that Everton’s squad was good, really good. “They’ve invested a lot in the transfer market in recent years and it didn’t work out for whatever reason but the combination of a good manager and a good squad helps from time to time in football and Carlo is obviously is someone who can lift a group when he enters the room. “When I heard it (Ancelotti’s appointment) I thought ‘that’s a proper combination’ and they will do well, 100 per cent, especially over the season. “But it is still a big challenge in the Premier League as there are other teams who are doing not too bad as well. “I am not too concerned about what Everton are doing but in this moment of course because we play them. “We lost that game in Napoli because there was a penalty which was no penalty and we didn’t play that bad. It wasn’t that they out-played us constantly.
