Mediums of exchange have been in existence for thousands of years. Today’s payments game features an interesting blend of time-tested products and delivery systems coexisting with technological innovations. It may seem impossible to keep up, but staying on the sidelines is not a viable option.The challenge for whoever is in charge of payments at your credit union is this: You have to manage your business line, first and foremost, but you also have to keep tabs on evolving technology and changes in the marketplace. Consider: What are the performance measures and levers in your business and how can you marry them with technology advancements?On the marketplace front, small payment providers and payment threats are lurking at every turn. Since the market is still relatively fractured and immature, each credit union needs to research, study and discuss where it fits into the landscape. At this point, it’s hard to know which options will take root.

‘Visually stunning’ southside home enters FNQ market Why FNQ property prices could be on the up 8 Elizabeth St, Flying Fish Point is listed with RE/MAX agent Daniel ArnottWITH endless and open beach views, this “hidden gem” encapsulates the popular Far Northern expression – where the rainforest meets the Reef. Through the front door of 8 Elizabeth St, Flying Fish Point, is the edge of the rainforest and at the rear, the backyard turf shares grains of sand with the beach. The three-bedroom beach house is described as a “slice of paradise” by RE/MAX selling agent Daniel Arnott. “I didn’t even know this place existed – it’s one of Far North Queensland’s best-kept secrets,” he said. The backyard turf meets the beach at 8 Elizabeth St, Flying Fish Point. MORE NEWS Agent speechless after 123 groups storm open home “It’s got basically its own private beach. “If you wanted to, you’d be able to fish from your bed, that’s how close you are to the beach. “From your kitchen it would take you about 10 seconds to have sand on your feet.”He said the property’s location wasn’t all about the beach, with the short 10-minute drive to Innisfail making it a suitable home for a wide range of buyers. 8 Elizabeth St, Flying Fish Point is only 10 minutes from Innisfail.“It’s complemented by the art-deco village of Innisfail, which has everything you need just 10 minutes away. But then when you’re back at this house it feels like you’re a million miles away from everything. “It’s a quiet neighbourhood, the beach is pristine and I saw some dolphins the last morning I was there. It’s probably a location not many have considered and not many have heard of.” Mr Arnott said when holiday-makers or visitors to the area did stumble across the property, they would begin making offers. “People have knocked on the door and said would you let us rent it out for the holidays. “It’s never been holiday let, but they’ve been offered $3000 a week.” 8 Elizabeth St, Flying Fish Point is listed with RE/MAX agent Daniel ArnottAnd their reasoning for the generous offers could be due to any number of features this tidy, renovated property packs.

It’s also got a separate living area as well, at the front of the property if you wanted to breakaway and just entertain.” He said the “very open” home enjoyed sea breezes as well as plenty of natural light to highlight the rare black bean timber floors. The large deck at 8 Elizabeth St, Flying Fish Point has endless beach views.However, he said, one of the true retreats in the home was the master bedroom. “They’re all good-sized bedrooms with plenty of natural light but you just get really beautiful views from the master bedroom.”Nearby is a school, a park and a licensed cafe all within walking distance, but a major drawcard is access to the reefs via the Flying Fish Point boat ramp, just one minute away. “The property has onsite parking for your boat,” Mr Arnott said. “It’s fully fenced and gated so if you did use it as a holiday home, you could keep all your toys secured onsite. We’ve fielded a lot of inquiry from Melbourne. People simply wanting a change and they’re wanting to move there. Others have wanted it as holiday house. “No price on it yet, the owner is seeking expressions of interest for now.”

The health director for Palm Beach County said the large gatherings in the city have been the cause for a spike in coronavirus cases.Dr. Alina Alonso, the health director for Palm Beach County, said there have been some large gatherings in western communities and other parts of Palm Beach County that are contributing to the spread of the virus.“In the areas of the Lake Worth corridor where there is a significant amount of parties resulting from birthdays, weddings, get-together barbecues, whatever you have that brings folks together,” Alonso said. “We see that after these events, we have spikes in the number of cases.”However, Alonso also said that the county’s daily lab positivity rate is going down in Palm Beach County, and she added that’s a sign we’re going in the right direction because it indicates how much virus is in the community.Alonso said masks and social distancing are working to slow the spread of the virus.According to the latest numbers from the Florida Department of Health, there are 34,929 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Palm Beach County, including 861 deaths.

BULAWAYO, Zimbabwe, CMC – The enterprising Shai Hope was left stranded agonisingly short of a third Test hundred as West Indies lost seven wickets in a dismal final session to be bowled out cheaply, giving minnows Zimbabwe the advantage on the opening day of the first Test here Saturday.The right-handed Hope stroked a composed unbeaten 90 while opener Kieran Powell chipped in with 56 but the Caribbean side found it difficult to cope with Zimbabwe’s spinners on a turning track at Queens Sports Club and were humbled for 219 in their first innings.Leg-spinner Graeme Cremer snatched four for 64 to reach 50 wickets in Tests while left-arm spinner Sean Williams prised out three for 20, as the Windies capitulated from a healthy position of 175 for three about half-hour after tea, to lose their seven wickets for a mere 44 runs in quick time.In reply, Zimbabwe safely navigated the five overs available to reach 19 without loss, 200 runs behind heading into Sunday’s second day.Solomon Mire was unbeaten on 17 while Hamilton Masakadza was yet to score.Opting to bat first, West Indies suffered an early setback when vice-captain Kraigg Brathwaite lasted 22 balls for his three before getting a thin edge behind off seamer Kyle Jarvis with 14 runs on the board.And they were in further trouble in the third over following the hour mark when Kyle Hope was adjudged caught at the wicket on review for 16, giving debutant all-rounder Mire his first wicket in Tests at 35 for twoHowever, Powell and Shai Hope then came together in a key 75-run, third wicket stand which guided the visitors to 65 without further loss at lunch.Unbeaten on 25 at the break, left-hander Powell moved into the 30s in the third over followng the resumption with a top-edged pull for four off Jarvis before entering the 40s with a sweetly-timed cover drive for four off a full toss from the same bowler, a few overs later.He raised his half-century – his first in 13 innings since his return to international cricket earlier this year – just before the hour mark of the session with a streaky four past the keeper off pacer Chris Mpofu.But he lasted just 14 more balls before edging a sweep at Cremer onto his pad and into the hands of Craig Ervine at short leg, to depart in the second over after the drinks break after facing 133 deliveries and striking six fours.Hope, on 19 at lunch, then took charge, anchoring a second successive half-century stand by adding 64 for the fourth wicket with Roston Chase who made 31.All told, Hope faced 201 deliveries and counted seven fours and a six – a clean blow over mid-wicket off Sikander Raza.He was forced to ride his luck, however, suriving a chance to Masakadza at slip off Cremer on 41 and then being acquitted on 51 by DRS after being given out caught at slip off Sikander Raza, in the final over before tea.Together, he and chase steered the Windies to tea at 154 for three but things fell apart in the first hour, with the wickets of Chase and Jermaine Blackwood (1) in quick succession.Chase, unbeaten on 20 at the break, gave Ervine his second of four catches close in when he failed to keep down one from off-spinner Sikandar Raza. He faced 64 balls and counted three fours.Three overs later, Cremer dragged Blackwood from his crease and had him stumped, leaving the Windies on 179 for five.Hope and wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich (11) attempted a repair job in a 23-run, sixth wicket stand which took their side past the 200-run mark.But Dowrich edged Williams to Masakadza at slip at the start of the final hour leading to a swift decline which saw the last five wickets tumble for 17 runs.Hope, on 56 at tea, continued to carry the innings as he marched towards three figures but lacked support.Captain Jason Holder was adjudged lbw to Williams for eight at 212 for seven and tail-enders Devendra Bishoo, Kemar Roach and Shannon Gabriel all failed to score, lasting a total of nine balls, as Cremer and Williams clinically mopped up the tail.

The campus was abuzz. A hoard of agents, reporters, photographers, NFL scouts and coaches formed a ring around the field. Friends and family gathered in the stands. Hundreds of students, teachers and passersby stopped to watch.Former USC football players showcased their skills to NFL personnel Wednesday, hoping to increase their chances of getting drafted later this month.That’s right. On one of the hottest days of the semester, the hottest place to be was Cromwell Field, watching players many people will only ever see on TV. Rarely is the entire USC community pulled together by one gravitational event on campus, but Wednesday’s Pro Day happened to be one of those days.It was a sight fill any Trojan with a sense of pride, and also served to challenge those who had written off USC. Football is alive and well in Southern California, and Pro Day is still a big deal around here.Only a few schools in the country can annually attract large crowd for Pro Day, and USC is still one of those schools. Yes, there were probably a dozen schools this year with a larger turnouts during their Pro Days, but often it was to see an exception, one player with extremely huge potential.USC does have a player who many scouts were focusing on in offensive tackle Tyron Smith. Smith was the reason Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett came out Wednesday, and he didn’t disappoint.But Smith is an offensive lineman, which isn’t one of those sexy, glamorous positions that make people like Paris Hilton, Gisele Bundchen and Kendra Wilkinson flock to the sport. Smith isn’t the reason everyone who walked by Cromwell stopped and watched for minutes or hours. Just the mere thought of USC Pro Day was enough for hundreds of people to check it out.It also was enough for superagent Drew Rosenhaus. There are few agents in the world whose name carries more weight than Rosenhaus. Rosenhaus is the Swackhammer of football. Much like the Monstars boss represented every player on Moron Mountain, Rosenhaus monopolizes the best NFL players on this planet. So if Rosenhaus shows up somewhere, you know it’s a big deal.But attendance wasn’t just limited to a few notable faces. Thirty-one of the 32 NFL teams were represented at Pro Day, which is a sign the program is healthy. Among them were three general managers, Oakland Raiders coach Hue Jackson and Minnesota Vikings linebackers coach Mike Singletary.The fact that all these people came to USC shows the Trojans still have a lot of options to offer teams.In addition to Smith was fellow offensive lineman Kristofer O’Dowd, wide receiver Ronald Johnson, tight ends Jordan Cameron and David Ausberry, running backs C.J. Gable and Allen Bradford, defensive tackle Jurrell Casey, linebacker Malcolm Smith and quarterback Mitch Mustain. That’s more variety than you’ll find in the periodic table. Heck, you might be able to fill a team to compete with Brett Favre and the Wranglers in a swampy field in Mississippi.So even though there wasn’t a star working out on Cromwell Wednesday such as Reggie Bush, Matt Leinart, Taylor Mays or Rey Malauga, that didn’t stop Pro Day from being the spectacle that it always is at USC.And I think that’s one spectacle athletic director Pat Haden wouldn’t mind keeping around.“Spittin’ Sports” runs Fridays.

From David Gilreath’s opening kickoff return for a touchdown to the final whistle, fans were eager to celebrate an OSU loss on Oct. 16.[/media-credit]It was perfect.The underdog had the No. 1 team in the nation at home, a place where those rankings haven’t mattered much. It was time to make a statement, to let the rest of the country know Wisconsin was for real.Mission accomplished – twice.As soon as the 2010 football schedule was released, Oct. 16 was circled and starred. The Buckeyes – who everyone loves to hate, and who the Badgers have played pretty evenly over the past decade – were coming to Camp Randall. It was a night game, and ESPN’s College GameDay was in town. Something special had to happen against the top-ranked team, right?And following a conference play-opening loss to Michigan State that made the Badgers look doomed for disappointment, the OSU game loomed larger than ever. Jim Tressel’s squad looked like it might steamroll UW. Bret Bielema’s boys had Rose Bowl aspirations that would hinge on an upset of OSU.Drama, anyone?David Gilreath finally returned a kickoff for a touchdown – the opening kickoff, nonetheless – and Madison erupted. Fifty-nine minutes of play later, the Badgers were mobbed by a deluge of ecstatic fans celebrating a 31-18 win over the Buckeyes.Season saved, statement made.And like any good tale, there was the opportunity for a sequel. But would it play out like “The Godfather, Part II” or “Blues Brothers 2000”?When Ohio State’s basketball team regained the No. 1 ranking just in time for a trip to the Kohl Center, Herald Sports appropriately ran the headline, “We’ve heard this story before.”Down by 15 points early in the second half, it looked like that $100 for the game ticket had gone to waste. UW couldn’t score and OSU was running – practically sprinting – away with a huge road win.But then Jordan Taylor woke up and showed America why he is one of the nation’s top point guards. With 13:21 to play, he keyed one of the greatest Wisconsin comebacks, overcoming a 15-point second-half deficit for just the sixth time in UW history. Taylor scored 18 points in that last 13-and-a-half minutes, playing a direct part in 34 of UW’s final 39 points.Taylor finished with 27 points, making the game final, UW 71, OSU 67.Again, No. 1 Ohio State came to Madison. And again, the Buckeyes could only trudge off the playing surface as Badger fans stormed out of the stands to celebrate.How often does a team get the chance to beat the No. 1 team at home in a season, let alone twice? And how many teams capitalize on both opportunities? Both were great moments, and both complemented each other; neither was as impressive unless the other was considered.So yes, Wisconsin taking down No. 1 Ohio State at home is the top moment of the 2010-2011 year. As for which particular win, that’s up to you.
