The hull was located at a depth of about 15,000 feet in the vicinity of the last known position.Sonar equipment towed from Apache first detected what are believed to be images of the vessel using Orion, a side-scanning sonar system, at about 1:36 pm ET on October 31 during the fifth of 13 planned search line surveys.To confirm the finding, specialists on Apache planned to use CURV 21, a deep ocean remotely operated vehicle, to survey and confirm the identity of the wreckage.The target identified by Orion is consistent with a 790-foot cargo ship, which from sonar images appears to be in an upright position and in one piece.Shortly after the National Transportation Safety Board opened its investigation into the accident, it contracted with the U.S. Navy to locate the missing ship, document the wreckage and debris field, and if possible, recover the voyage data recorder.If the vessel is confirmed to be El Faro, CURV-21, an ROV, outfitted with a video camera will start the documentation of the vessel and the debris field and attempt to locate and recover the voyage data recorder. Those operations are expected to take up to 15 days to complete in ideal conditions but could take longer depending on weather and conditions encountered during the documentation process.[mappress mapid=”17329″]Source: NTSB; Image: TOTE Services Share this article Authorities View post tag: diving division November 2, 2015last_img read more


first_imgWe will discuss the evidence and any future proposals with the Devolved Administrations.Notes to Editors: With all options being considered, I am keen to hear from industry, the devolved authorities and charities on all possible options and evidence on this vital issue. The Government’s full manifesto commitment in this area is “as we leave the European Union, we can take early steps to control the export of live farm animals for slaughter.” The call for evidence, which will last for six weeks, seeks views from across industry, devolved authorities, charities and the general public on how the government might raise standards of animal welfare during transport after the UK leaves the EU. All options for future improvements in this area are being considered, including a potential ban on the live export of animals for slaughter.Latest figures, from 2016, show that each year over four thousand sheep are transported from the UK to continental Europe for slaughter.British Veterinary Association President John Fishwick said:“BVA welcomes the launch of the government’s call for evidence on live animal exports. We believe that production animals should not be transported long distances to the abattoir but should be slaughtered as near to the point of production as possible. Animals should be transported on the hook, as meat, not on the hoof, as live animals.“It is vital that we maintain the UK’s current high standards of animal welfare post-Brexit and seek opportunities to improve them. We look forward to contributing to this call and seeing the results once the evidence has been collected.”This announcement builds on a wide range of animal welfare reforms announced by the government, including: All animals deserve to get the respect and care they deserve at every stage of their lives. This call for evidence begins to deliver on our manifesto commitment which aims to control the export of live animals for slaughter once we leave the European Union.center_img Making CCTV mandatory in slaughterhouses Increasing the maximum prison sentence for animal abuse from six months to five years Updating a number of animal welfare codes A call for evidence for a potential ban on the live export of animals for slaughter after Brexit has been launched by Environment Secretary Michael Gove. It will also look at higher welfare standards for live animal movements.Taking action on live animal exports forms part of the government’s programme of reforms to cement our position as a global leader in animal welfare as we leave the EU and deliver a Green Brexit.The Farm Animal Welfare Committee has also launched a review into the existing welfare standards for animals during transport, and this is being complemented by research commissioned by Defra from Scotland’s Rural College and the University of Edinburgh.Environment Secretary Michael Gove said: We have some of the highest animal welfare standards in the world which we are strengthening further by raising maximum sentences for animal cruelty to five years and introducing mandatory CCTV in abattoirs.last_img read more


first_imgThis weekend, what started out as celebration of David Bowie’s music has become a living, breathing tribute to the legend himself. When The Music Of David Bowie was first announced for April 1st at Carnegie Hall in New York, NY, impresario Michael Dorf intended for the performances to capture the momentum of Bowie’s recently-released album, Blackstar. “The Music Of” has paid tribute to legends like The Who, Paul Simon, David Byrne and more in recent years.Just one day later, news broke that Bowie had passed away from a long battle with cancer. Suddenly Dorf’s musical celebration became a tribute, as more and more artists were eager to perform Bowie’s influential music as a way of bidding the Thin White Duke a farewell.“The unexpected death of David Bowie has turned this tribute, which we have work on for the past 7 months, into a poignany celebration of his music by his friends, peers, and fans,” reads the event website. “We are all deeply saddened by this news. The timing of our public on-sale date was bizarre in its timing and the show is taking on many more emotions. RIP David and may God’s love be with you…”It’s no surprise that tickets sold out practically instantaneously, as the event boasts performances from Mumford & Sons, Blondie, Pixies, Michael Stipe, J Mascis, Rickie Lee Jones, Esperanza Spalding, The Flaming Lips, Ron Pope, Jherek Bischoff, Amanda Palmer & Anna Calvi with Kronos Quartet, Ann Wilson, The Roots, Cat Power, The Polyphonic Spree, Perry Farrell, Jakob Dylan, Holy Holy, Donny McCaslin Group with Mark Guiliana, Jason Lindner and Tony Visconti.

The easy Red Spruce Knob Trail will reward you with a view of the Crooked Fork watershed, plus the remains of the old lookout tower. Discover another architectural treat on Props Run, where an arch bridge stretches over the creek. This section of the trails follows right along the vast Monongahela National Forest, so you can slide off into this scenic national gem to explore hundreds of additional miles of trail.4. Alpine LakeAcres of winter wilderness fan out from Alpine Lake. Lakeside Loop winds around the water, while Lake View Circle Trail dips closer to the shoreline. If you want an up-close view, the more difficult Seven Bridges Trail cozies up even further to the shoreline, and scoots smoothly along the edge for about a mile.Tracing further out on the trails a few miles, you can reach Old Firetower Peak, the highest point at the resort.5. Bald KnobIn the midst of White Grass Touring Center is Weiss Mountain, which used to be a downhill skiing slope. You can still take a cross-country trek up for a view of Canaan Valley. But the best view is from nearby Bald Knob, the 3rd highest point in West Virginia. Even though it can get steep, less experienced skiers can still reach the peak.The backcountry trails at White Grass also link to the open plains of the Dolly Sods Wilderness. With enough powder, you can barrel over boulder gardens, or even burrow into a snow cave. Take Fido to for a winter walk in the meadows, too: the trail to the sods from White Grass is pet-friendly.CanaanValley-sjs-25. Bluestone Canyon & National ParkThe ungroomed trails of Pipestem Resort State Park are challenging, but worth it. The Lick Hollow Trail winds to the top of the Bluestone Canyon Rim for a sweeping view of the National Park 1,000 feet below. For a more historic backdrop, look for lingering remains from the pioneer days along the South Side Trail.Discover more winter beauty and adventure in West Virginia on the Best of Winter map: The Mountain State is best known for its ski slopes, but the cross-country skiing and snowshoeing terrain is the real winter gem.Along the trails, you can discover scenic wonders of West Virginia, from glistening frozen waterfalls to sweeping National Forest vistas.If you’re looking for a scenic trip on the winter trails, here’s a look at what you can uncover:1. Blackwater FallsAll it takes to tame a wild mountain waterfall is a little winter chill. If temperatures creep low enough, even the nearly 60-foot Blackwater Falls freezes solid, creating a massive, cascading icicle garden. Snowshoe the overlook trail to get a good vantage point of the enchanting scene.If the snow is high enough, the park’s trails are also great for skiing. For a wondrous winter view of the slopes, trek to Lindy Point, which opens up to a panoramic view straight off into the winding Blackwater Canyon, where stacked, snow-draped mountains rise up from the valley and stretch on for miles. BlackwaterFallsWinter-sjs-04-22. DeerIf you’re sweeping through Canaan Valley Resort State Park, you’ll probably meet a few deer along the way. The graceful creatures are used to sharing the valley with humans, so they aren’t as skittish. While you can’t approach them, you might be able to catch an amazing photo.3. Highland Scenic HighwayThe Highland National Scenic Highway is every bit as stunning in winter, but the road is closed for the season. Luckily, with no traffic to worry about, the path is clear for pedestrians (of sorts). The Elk River Touring Center ski trails criss-cross a section of the rugged highway’s terrain. read more

first_imgATM equipment can be expensive. The typical capital investment for ATM hardware ranges from $6,000 to $40,000 – depending on the size and operations capability of the machine. In addition to initial expense, financial institutions must perform ongoing operations and management to connect, maintain and service each ATM.In some cases, regular operation requires contracts with third-party vendors. The institution will also likely incur personnel expenses to arrange and monitor each of the ATM functions. Finally, banks and credit unions must maintain ATM compliance for each machine – including hardware and software upgrades to meet security compliance, ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliance and EMV chip-card compatibility.Today, ATMs are rarely a profit center for financial institutions. Instead, these machines are a depreciating asset requiring a continuing expenditure of time and management dollars. The costs and requirements have begun to drive many banks and credit unions out of the ATM business – often in favor of full outsourcing to third-party ATM operators. Own the Benefits, Not the HardwareSelecting an ATM outsourcing program from a third-party vendor provides institutions with a variety of benefits – and uniquely fits a “benefits, not hardware” outlook. Though some institutions select to retain machine ownership and only hand over operations to a third-party, many choosing outsourcing options hand over full ownership of their machines along with the operational functions.Outsourcing ATM operations results in immediate benefits – freeing up employee time.However, third-party ATM management provides other perks, as well. Businesses specializing in ATMs are more focused on ATMs with a greater number of staff available to monitor, manage and assess the ATM fleet. As a result, they are usually capable of providing a higher level of ATM service.ATM outsourcing also lowers the cost to financial institutions as outsourcing vendors leverage their larger ATM fleet to lower overall expenditures for goods and services – passing those savings onto their clients.Credit unions selecting to eliminate ATM ownership gain even more benefits as they are no longer responsible for handling upgrades or replacements to their ATM fleet. While most financial institutions are very familiar with the high cost of these upgrades due to the recent sunset of Windows XP and the introduction of new EMV standards at the ATM, they are not looking into the future, when support for the current operating systems end in 2020. This single benefit reduces significant overhead costs that financial institutions will run into again.Outsourcing in ActionCitizens Bank, based in Kilgore, TX, and Community National Bank (CNB), of Hondo, TX, are two community-based financial institutions that have selected outsourcing over in-house ATM operations.Citizen’s Bank needed to reduce capital expenditures and free up employee time to focus on newer products and services. Choosing to outsource their ATM fleet allowed the bank to reclaim some of the capital expenditure as well as the time and effort they had tied up in maintaining their ATM network.CNB cites compliance as the final straw in their decision to outsource their ATM management. “We didn’t want to sink any more capital into ATM upgrades or buying new machines,” said CNB President and CEO, Ronnie A. Miller. “We needed a solution that would allow us to reduce our costs, eliminate costly service agreements and relieve the compliance burden without compromising the service our customers have come to expect from us.”Both CNB and Citizen’s Bank have seen a consistency in excellent service, a cut in compliance and regulatory headaches and a significant cost savings. Handing over ATM management has allowed them to focus their attention on more significant items – such as opening commercial accounts, generating more loans, mobile banking, remote deposit capture and Apple Pay.“I don’t know why any bank would want to own or operate ATMs anymore,” said Citizens Bank Executive Vice President Melvin Jordan. 27SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Paul Albright Enterprising Sales/Management Leader with more than 18 years of Payments Industry expertise building a portfolio of C-Level clients.

first_imgAre you planning to build a new website or improve your current one?How will you use content marketing and marketing automation?Do you have a digital marketing plan to guide you along your journey?Where Are You on Your Digital Marketing Journey?We understand every credit union is at a different point in their digital marketing journey.But after working with more than 420 financial institutions over the past 14 years, we have identified ten specific areas of focus that help banks or credit unions leap ahead of their competition.And I want you to leap ahead of your competition in 2016. That is my hope for you.If you are one of the more than 70% of banks and credit unions who d o not have a digital marketing strategy, ask yourself the following ten questions:How does your digital marketing compare to other banks and credit unions?Have you established an appropriate budget required to achieve your digital marketing goals?How do your consumer personas and market segments go beyond basic demographic data?How do you differentiate yourself from others who promote “great rates and services?”What staff and processes are needed for you to achieve your goals for growth?What digital journeys have you documented to guide consumers through their buying cycle?What marketing technology platforms do you need to achieve your goals for growth?What process do you use to produce digital stories that emotionally connect with consumers?What distribution channels do you need to communicate with your key consumer segments?How do you quantify digital marketing success with KPIs tied back to your goals for growth? Don’t worry you find yourself struggling with these questions. You’re not alone.But you don’t have to be like everyone else.You can be better.What’s Your Digital Marketing Score?The first step to becoming better is to gain an understanding and awareness of where you are now and where you should be.The Quick Digital Marketing Assessment will help you quickly identify your digital marketing growth areas. So far, over 50 banks and credit unions have taken the assessment. And the average Digital Marketing Score is 24 out of a possible 100.There is obviously much room for improvement and growth.For example, a VP of Marketing for a financial institution in Florida saw this opportunity. She reached out to us ahead of her strategic planning session hoping to gain guidance as a new website along with digital and content marketing were key strategic items for her.But she needed a more formalized plan to help overcome her Board of Directors’ and executive team’s fears about digital marketing to gain support and buy­in to move forward.We recommended a D igital Marketing Blueprint to help her along the way, and she recently shared, “We just went over the final slides for the strategic planning session and I used several from your presentation – our CEO is very happy. Our CFO also stated marketing needs more people and everyone agreed we may adjust budget for digital marketing so all good stuff!”Just as we have helped guide this VP of Marketing and many others along their digital marketing journey towards success, a D igital Marketing Blueprint provides clarity and confidence.This VP of Marketing did not let her Board of Directors’ and executive team’s fear of the digital marketing unknown, fear of change, and fear of failure stand in her way. 7SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Jonathan Lay As Senior  Advisor at CU Grow, Jonathan Lay helps banks and credit unions use digital marketing to tell stories that sell. He brings over a decade of digital marketing experience … Web: www.cugrow.com Details We are now less than a few weeks away from 2016.A year that I believe is full of hope and opportunity, especially for credit unions who focus on using digital marketing to grow as consumer shopping behavior for financial services continues to evolve.As the end of the year approaches, it’s natural to reflect on how this past year went.Yet, many times, and I’m just as guilty of this, we sprint right into the new year without much introspection. We hurdle forward without reevaluating where we are headed.We may have the best intentions to change and improve ourselves and our credit unions. But life happens, and we continue reactionary living and as a result, make no real progress.Promises and Resolutions to Change Are Not EnoughIt is good to have a resolve to change.It is good to set goals.And it is good to have a plan.But we need to take action to change, achieve our goals, and turn that plan into reality.However, three things often cripple our resolve to change as they stand in our way to take action.In fact, we have seen the same three traits show up in credit union executive teams time and again through our D igital Marketing Blueprint engagements:The fear of the unknownThe fear of changeThe fear of failureAs you continue to plan for 2016, take a moment to consider the following questions and think about what might be standing in your way: And neither should you.By facing these fears head on with knowledge and insight, you will have confidence to seize an opportunity to make 2016 your credit union’s best year ever.last_img read more
