Brutal Cold, Light Snow Hits Long Island

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York The blast of frigid air that enveloped Long Island Tuesday morning also came with light snow—a dusting that arrived just as commuters hit the roads. The white stuff is expected to continue to fall throughout the afternoon, but accumulation may not exceed 2 inches, according to the National Weather Service. Meteorologists at the NWS’ Upton office predicted between 1-2 inches, with most of the snowfall coming before 5 p.m. There is a chance of snow showers in the forecast until 7 p.m., however. While accumulation may not be significant, it’s the frigid temperature that could turn out to be the biggest nuisance. Forecasters predict a high of 26 degrees Tuesday with wind chill values between 10 and 15 degrees. The brutal chill will hang around all week, meteorologists said. Wednesday could be even colder, with the wind chill making it feel like 5 degrees during the day and below zero in the evening. There is a slight chance of snow showers Wednesday.last_img read more

NAFCU urges disclosure exemption for credit unions ahead of today’s CFPB hearing

first_img continue reading » NAFCU, noting the uniqueness of credit unions and their limited authority for member business lending, urged ahead of a CFPB public field hearing today that the CFPB exempt the industry from any future rulemaking that would require further disclosure of business loan information.Today’s hearing, slated for 11 a.m. Pacific (2 p.m. Eastern) in Los Angeles, will review a Dodd-Frank Act small business lending requirement that the CFPB collect information on small business loans made to women- and minority-owned business.NAFCU will monitor the hearing for any potential impact on the credit union industry.“Credit unions serve distinct fields of membership, and as a result, institution-level data related to women-owned, minority-owned, and small business lending substantially differs in relation to other lenders,” wrote NAFCU Regulatory Affairs Counsel Andrew Morris in a letter to the bureau on Tuesday. “Given the unique characteristics of credit unions and the limits placed on member business loans (MBLs), the CFPB should seek to exempt credit unions from any future rulemaking that compels disclosure of business loan information.” 15SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

The Arena’s search for a new sponsor begins

first_imgCurrently, the Arena is developing the RFP, which Marion says is the most important step and he hopes will be sent out within 30 days. Arena manager Chris Marion says a new deal will not be in place by June 30, because it is a timely process that needs to be done the right way. “Developing the RFP, getting it out to the companies in the area, letting them review it, reviewing the proposals that come back, negotiating a contract, getting approvals and then actually implementing it, it’s quite a bit,” he says. Toward the end of 2019, Maines informed the Arena it would not be renewing the naming rights contract between the two, after a six-year partnership. “Like” Nicole Menner on Facebook and “Follow” her on Twitter. “You want to make sure you are defining exactly what you want to get out of the relationship so the potential sponsor knows what they are getting, the county knows what it’s getting, and we’re all on the same page.” Marion said he expects the entire process to be complete within four to five months, in line with the start of the next Binghamton Devils season. BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — As of June 30, Floyd L. Maines Veterans Memorial Arena will no longer have “Floyd L. Maines” attached to its name. center_img “We’re looking not just for the company to put their name on our building or logo on our uniforms, but a partner that’s going to really honor the building and its purpose, help us bring more events to the building, and take us through this phase we’re in now and create a building we can be proud of for another 50 years,” said Marion. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, Marion said he is optimistic when they send out the RFP, companies will be interested in a sponsorship. Marion says the Maines contract was worth $75,000, but said “when we put out a proposal, we don’t necessarily put out a minimum number,” adding “obviously the more money that comes in the more we can do with the facility in terms of reducing the property tax support the building receives. “We’re going to take our time, make sure we write the RFP or request for proposal for the next sponsor in a way that meets our goals, the goals of the community, the Veterans Memorial Arena. “There’s a lot of things that need to fall into place when you look at the marketing that goes along with the naming rights. From the physical signage, to the digital signage to the name of the building appearing on printed tickets,” he says. Marion added it is a lengthy process from start to finish. last_img read more

CMI longevity model could cut Swiss liabilities by up to 3.5%

first_imgApplying the continuous mortality investigation (CMI) model could slice between 2.5% and 3.5% off liabilities in Swiss Pensionskassen, according to consultancy group Libera.The CMI model incorporates regular adjustments to increases in longevity, whereas standard mortality tables currently project an unbroken upwards tendency.“Under the CMI model the life expectancy of a 65-year-old Swiss male is 3.5% lower than compared with the model used by the federal statistical office,” Libera noted.However, so far “no Swiss Pensionskassen are applying the CMI model”, Benno Ambrosini, board member at Libera, confirmed to IPE. “But there is no regulatory impediment to using a different model as long as it is adjusted to the Swiss population,” he added.Swiss law only states pension funds have to “calculate their annual reports based on accepted basic principles and openly accessible technical foundations”, Libera explained.In the UK the model has been discussed and applied more widely . Most recently actuaries have calculated that UK life expectancy improvements have stalled in recent years, which could reduce liabilities for many pension schemes.“What has still to be decided is the long-term adjustment rate to be used in the CMI model for Switzerland,” Ambrosini said.However, he criticised the rate used by many UK companies, saying the 1.25% widely used in the UK was based on “too little” substantial evidence.The CMI model is based on the assumption that current rates of mortality improvement converge to a single long-term rate, as noted by the UK’s Institute and Faculty of Actuaries.last_img read more
