In the COVID-19 crisis: Is a credit union right for you?

first_img continue reading » Today, consumers have more banking choices than ever when it comes to how and where they’ll manage their money: traditional brick-and-mortar banks, online-only banks, robo-advisors, fintech apps. Another option is the credit union—a financial institution that can range from small and local, to truly national in scope.For consumers who have become jaded about the banking industry, the promises of credit unions—from excellent customer service and financial education to impressively competitive rates—can generate cynical responses. But there are some very good reasons 117.5 million Americans chose credit unions for their financial needs as of 2018.Here’s what you can expect from a credit union if you choose to become a member.What a Credit Union IsA credit union is a financial institution, like a bank, except its ownership is different. By joining a credit union, you are becoming a member of a not-for-profit cooperative. The credit union members own the institution, rather than its being a traditional bank that has private owners or public shareholders. 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

The State Inspectorate is finally bringing order. The eVisitor system compares ads on to catch illegal renters

first_imgApart from the fact that illegal renters lower the price, they do not pay taxes (thus earning more than you) damage directly to you, as well as to the entire tourist destination. The new State Inspectorate has consolidated the tasks of 17 inspections within eight ministries. Thus, market, sanitary, veterinary, agricultural, hunting, forestry, phytosanitary, tourist, mining, inspection of pressure equipment, energy, management of toxic chemicals, labor, construction, environmental protection, nature protection and water inspection are united. Those who do everything according to the Law do not have to be afraid or intimidated by inspections. Recall, in accordance with the new amendments to the Law on Hospitality, which, among other things, requires that tourism inspectors have the opportunity to apply the principle of opportunity, ie the possibility that minor violations can be warned, with a deadline to correct irregularities, not to they immediately print out fines. So, if someone has listed their apartment on, it is easy to see if the same landlord is also registered in the eVisitor system. On the other hand, all those who respect the Law and settle all their obligations to the State, turn out to be “fools” towards those who do not. So accordingly, the question arises whether you will report your “colleagues”, friends, neighbors who rent illegally? On the other hand, illegal renters are unfair competition and a big problem of our tourism. In addition to not paying taxes and all other levies, by lowering prices, they destroy the market and thus are unfair competition to all those who pay everything regularly and according to the law. RELATED NEWS: As the inspections merged and with the reorganization of the independent State Inspectorate, the work of the inspections should have been more efficient and functional. In tourism, it should enable a clearer and more concrete fight against the black and gray economy. Certainly, it is in everyone’s interest to suppress the black market, because they are unfair competition to legal landlords. It is in everyone’s interest to combat illegal landlords. Why would they be “smart” and you “fools”. Yes, that is exactly what everyone who pays according to the law turns out to be. center_img Report illegal landlords as well as anyone else who does not comply with the Act. “Advertising on platforms such as and Airbnb can also be a reason to conduct inspections. Namely, the Law on Catering stipulates that when advertising and advertising services and displaying messages in promotional materials, the landlord may use only the designation of the prescribed type and the category and type of special standard of the facility determined by the competent office, and when advertising and advertising services with taxpayers from the European Union must indicate the tax number, ie VAT identification number”, They explain in the inspectorate for Poslovni dnevnik. TAX ADMINISTRATION MOVES FISCALIZATION SUPERVISION IN THE ACCOMMODATION SERVICE SECTOR Everyone must pay taxes and all levies prescribed by law, including landlords. We need fair market competition, so let the one who is better, more creative, more proactive, more capable “win” and the one who invests more in quality and gives his personal contribution as a host. Non-payment of taxes, non-registration of workers and illegal landlords are the cancer of the wound of our tourism, and the State Inspectorate will focus on that. In order to carry out better control and bring order to the black zone, under the new law, inspectors will be able to enter facilities that have not reported renting accommodation. It is the tourism sector, renters and catering facilities, announced by the State Inspectorate, that will be in focus before the start of the peak tourist season. The unified State Inspectorate began operations on Monday (April 01st). How to find illegal renters? Simply. Assistance to the State Inspectorate will be eVisitor data where all renters must register, and illegal renters will be compared with data / advertisements on the strongest booking portals, such as and Illegal renters are unfair competitionlast_img read more

Injuries to pitchers Olivarez, Vanevenhoven doom Badgers in late innings

first_imgJEFF SCHORFHEIDE/Herald file photoA season-high 740 fans attended the season finale, butWisconsin’s softball team was unable to feed off the vocal crowd. After pitcherLeah Vanevenhoven gave up five runs in the second inning, UW appeared to beemotionally deflated and was never able to muster a rally.This was in stark contrast to the day before, when theBadgers made several impressive defensive plays and kept Minnesota off thescoreboard until the eleventh frame.“I think on Saturday we just went out there, had fun andplayed with our hearts,” sophomore pitcher Letty Olivarez said of herteammates. “It was our final day, it was senior day, and we wanted to play forJoey [Daniels] and Lynn [Anderson]. It just didn’t carry on over to today. Wecame out quiet and we came out flat, and nobody was there.”Wisconsin’s softball team shut out border rival Minnesotathrough the first ten innings of an eleven-inning game Saturday before freshmanKristyn Hansen gave up four runs in the eleventh. Sunday, the Gophers scored 14runs in the first four innings before the game ended via the “mercy rule” afterthe fifth inning.Inconsistent pitching has plagued the Badgers all year long,and it was fitting that UW would end their season on a note like this.“I think this series clearly sums up our season,” sophomoreLetty Olivarez said. “Our whole season has been like this; one day we are great,the next we are awful. I just hope we learn from it for next year. We have tocommit. We need to commit to every game and every pitch.”Vanevenhoven gave up 11 hits and three walks as she wastorched for nine earned runs in three innings of work. As has been the case allseason, Vanevenhoven received little help from her defense, who committed fourerrors and botched several other plays. Vanevenhoven leads the conference inlosses with 24 on the season, although part of that can be attributed to theleague-leading 69 unearned runs that UW has given up.Wisconsin ran into some bad luck when both of their top pitcherswere injured during Saturday’s game. Vanevenhoven was hit in the hand by a linedrive, which forced her out of the game for one-third of an inning. In theeleventh inning, a line drive hit Olivarez in the knee, forcing her to leavethe game. Olivarez was not available for Sunday’s game, and though Vanevenhovenstarted, she appeared to still be suffering the effects of Saturday’s injury.“Clearly the injuries affected us a bit,” Olivarez said.“Leah wasn’t herself today, and I felt extremely bad that I was hurt andcouldn’t help the team out. Leah was out there battling, but clearly she wasstruggling, and it hurt the team that I was unavailable to pitch.”last_img read more

Under the Radar at UFC 235: Pedro Munhoz

first_imgJoin DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearHe has looked terrific as of late and has the potential to cause further chaos in the bantamweight division by handing Garbrandt a third consecutive loss this weekend in Las Vegas.Don’t sleep on Pedro Munhoz; he’s a real player in the 135-pound ranks. Prior to every event, Under the Radar will cast the spotlight on an up-and-coming talent who shows the potential for growth in their division and isn’t getting enough attention as they head into battle.Name: Pedro Munhoz Record: 17-3 (1 NC) overall; 7-3 (1 NC) UFCDivision: BantamweightTeam: American Top TeamPedro Munhoz just hasn’t been able to put together the right wins at the right time in order to propel himself into the thick of the title chase in the bantamweight division, but that doesn’t mean the 32-year-old “Young Punisher” shouldn’t be viewed as a viable threat in the division.While Munhoz has earned some quality wins inside the Octagon, including first-round finishes of Rob Font and Bryan Caraway, it’s his trio of losses that really illustrate where he fits in the bantamweight hierarchy and why he is someone people should be paying closer attention to heading into UFC 235 this weekend in Las Vegas.Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearAfter racking up 10 consecutive victories to start his career, including winning and defending the RFA bantamweight title, Munhoz debuted in the Octagon on short notice and went the distance in a losing effort against Raphael Assuncao, who was fresh off his split-decision win over TJ Dillashaw and 5-0 in the division at the time.His two other losses both came by split decision — one to Jimmie Rivera a little over three years ago and most recently to John Dodson last March. Both fights were closely contested and no one would have batted an eye if the split fell in Munhoz’s favor in either instance.He’s one round on one scorecard away from entering this weekend’s matchup with former champ Cody Garbrandt on a seven-fight winning streak — and two rounds on two cards away from being unbeaten in his last 10 — and yet very few people seem to view the Brazilian finisher as a real threat in the 135-pound ranks.And that’s a mistake.While some will look at those three losses to top contenders and categorize Munhoz as a talented guy, who isn’t quite good enough to beat the best the division has to offer, I look at him as a tough matchup for just about anyone and someone whose skills and abilities are far greater than his results would indicate.It’s the case I make whenever James Vick fights and talks about how guys aren’t on his level and cites his nine wins — quality matters more than quantity, so while Vick and others have shinier records, give me a guy like Munhoz (or Paul Felder last week against Vick) who might have caught a couple of losses along the way, but has been in there with and proven himself against significantly greater competition.Which is why I think he’s being overlooked heading into this fight with Garbrandt on Saturday.In terms of style and demeanor, Munhoz is the exact opposite type of guy I would want to come back against if I’m the former champion because he’s never been finished, has no problem getting into a firefight if that’s what you’re looking for and has an arsenal of weapons he can finish you with if you get loose and make a mistake … which is precisely what Garbrandt has done in each of his last two fights.While he carries a reputation for being “a submission guy,” Munhoz has much better boxing and power in his hands than he’s often given credit for and his submission wins often come as a result of his landing big shots that put opponents down or turn them into panic wrestlers. If he gets you in that position, Munhoz has shown he’s adept at finishing, either by following up with strikes or clamping on his signature guillotine choke, which he can secure in a flash.The most interesting wrinkle in this fight — at least to me — is how the Brazilian will hold up if Garbrandt is able to land big shots on the feet. Thus far, Munhoz has proven to be ultra-durable, but “No Love” sits down on his punches and carries more power than just about anyone in the division, so if he lands clean, Munhoz’s chin will be put to the test.This is the fight I’m looking forward to the most on Saturday night because it’s such an intriguing clash of styles and Munhoz feels like such a criminally underrated talent heading into a winnable fight against a former champion.last_img read more
