The Internet of Things—the concept that people’s everyday items and devices communicate with each other via the internet—affects “every single industry,” CSCU’s Tom Davis tells the CUNA News Podcast.Connected devices are everywhere, including clothing and gardens, says Davis, CSCU’s senior vice president of finance and technology.And because many of these smart devices don’t have tangible user interfaces—as is the case with popular smart home devices from Amazon and Google—any transactions through them are mostly invisible.For example, think about ordering a pizza with the Amazon Echo.The consumer doesn’t reach for a card or enter a security code. Echo processes the order with a voice command. continue reading » 22SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
In 2010, Donald Trump spoke of global warming as “a con,” later tweeting that “the concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.” More Nazi-style propaganda? I think this is “fake news” about the Chinese who, on many days either must stay indoors or wear masks to protect them from their smog. I think they know a bit about pollution and global warming.Later, Trump told a right-wing talk show host, “I’m not a believer in man-made global warming. It could be warming, and it’s going to start to cool at some point. And you know, in the early 1920s, people talked about global cooling. But the problem we have, and if you look at our energy costs, and all of the things we’re doing to solve a problem that I don’t think in any major fashion exists.” Eh? What? Does this even make sense? What did he just tell us? He may profess not to believe in global warming, but he’s building higher sea walls at some of his coastal properties to prevent the flooding that comes with rising sea levels. So I think he’s lying to us (again) when he says global warming is a con and a hoax.Meanwhile, please conserve fossil fuels and eat less beef. It will even save you money.And in the Democratic primaries, consider a vote for Tedra Cobb for representative to the House.

Manchester City have alerted interested clubs after deciding to part ways with Matija Nastasic either on loan or permanently, reports Metro.The news will be of particular interest to Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, who had pinpointed the centre-back as a possible replacement for Thomas Vermaelen.Nastasic exitNastasic was something of a revelation at Manchester City after joining from Fiorentina in 2012. The 21-year-old, then 19, fitted into the set-up seamlessly as Vincent Kompany continued to struggle with injury.However, those roles were reversed last season with Kompany returning to fitness and the Serbian international spending the vast majority of the campaign on the treatment table. With doubts lingering over his long-term availability, Manuel Pellegrini is ready to cash in on him once the prospective deal for Eliaquim Mangala has been completed.Arsenal interest Wenger has been an admirer of Nastasic since his youth level days. The same report claims that Arsenal have been tracking the centre-back since he was 16-years-old and Wenger is ready to take his chance to bring him to the Emirates Stadium.
Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini are facing likely bans of around seven years when FIFA’s ethics judge delivers his verdict on Monday.Barring a major surprise, both FIFA president Blatter and UEFA president Platini are expected to be found guilty of ethics code breaches surrounding a £1.3million “disloyal payment” made to the Frenchman in 2011.German judge Hans-Joachim Eckert, the chairman of FIFA’s adjudicatory chamber, held disciplinary hearings for the pair last week and is due to announce his findings and any sanctions on Monday morning.Ethics investigators accept that proving corruption, which carries a lifetime ban, will be difficult – it was reported on Sunday that Blatter himself had claimed that those charges would be dropped.Investigators are very confident that other charges including conflict of interest, false accounting and non co-operation – or criticism of the ethics committee – will be proved. A file running to more than 50 pages was submitted by investigators.Sources with knowledge of the case say sanctions handed down to other FIFA officials previously provide an indication of the level of the bans faced by Platini and Blatter. In July, Harold Mayne-Nichols. the official who headed the inspection team for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups, was banned from all football-related activity for seven years for conflict of interest and breach of confidentiality.Former FIFA vice-president Chung Mong-Joon from Korea was banned for six years in October for ethics code breaches that he said related to matters such as duty of disclosure, and confidentiality.Platini boycotted his hearing in Zurich on Friday in protest, claiming a decision already appeared to have been made. His lawyers attended, but it looks as though the Frenchman is already preparing to take the matter to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.His slim hopes of running for the FIFA presidency on February 26 would be finally ended by any sort of a ban however. The provisional suspensions imposed on him and Blatter in October mean he has been unable to carry out any campaigning.Blatter is unlikely to go quietly either as he faces an end to his four decades at the top of FIFA. The 79-year-old has called a news conference for Monday morning in Zurich in the same building that used to house FIFA before it moved to its new headquarters in 2006. He has already claimed in media interviews that the ethics committee has no power to remove him as president. –Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM. Our hashtag is #JoySports
