Tagged with: Charity Operation Homefront Veterans VFSAC VFSAC Golf Classic Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Last week, representatives from a broad array of companies representing the mortgage industry and beyond gathered at the Stonebriar Country Club in Frisco, Texas, for the first annual Veterans Financial Services Advisory Council (VFSAC) Golf Classic. Hosted by VFSAC, an organization that helps veterans and their families in search of support related to housing and critical services, the day’s events raised more than $200,000 to benefit Operation Homefront, a national 501(c)(3) that partnered with VFSAC to address the ongoing housing needs of veterans and their families.Sponsors for the 2019 VFSAC Golf Classic included ALAW; Aspen Grove Solutions; Auction.com; Carrington; Five Brothers Asset Management; Ginali Associates; Goldman Sachs; Google; LoanCare; National Field Representatives; Novare National Settlement Service (A Division of Fidelity National Title); Prominent Escrow Services, Inc. and FIN Title; RSMA Law; Rushmore Cares; Safeguard; ServiceLink; Xome; and York-Jersey Underwriters.After attendees spend the day on the green, they reconvened inside the clubhouse for a silent auction and presentations that included a brief welcome from VFSAC Chairman and Rushmore Loan Management Services CEO Terry Smith.”We have the opportunity to do a lot of great things through VFSAC,” Smith said.VFSAC Founder Ed Delgado brought up an earlier discussion with Operation Homefront President and CEO John Pray, Jr., Brig. Gen., USAF (Ret.), in which they discussed the nature of the sacrifices that veterans make in service of their country. Delgado recalled Pray telling him that he never viewed his time in the military as a sacrifice, but rather as “an honor, a privilege, and a duty.”Delgado then discussed one particular veteran’s case he had encountered: a former service member who needed $1,100 to fix the transmission on his truck. That may not have seemed like much, Delgado explained, but it was about more than just transportation. This veteran wasn’t just using the vehicle to get around at the time—he was living in it.”When we talk about honoring those who have given us so much,” Delgado said, “think of that veteran.”Delgado then introduced U.S. Army Specialize Erica Corley, a seven-year veteran who served as a medical lab tech and had spent one year in Kuwait.”When I came home,” Corley said, “I didn’t have a home to come home to.”Through Operation Homefront, Corley, a mother of two, is to be the recipient of a mortgage-free home in Mesquite, Texas. Speaking before the group, Corley laid out the process required to go from application to receipt of the home, a process designed to ensure that the chosen veteran is capable of keeping that home in the long run.”They show you how to be a homeowner,” Corley said.Founded by Five Star Global President and CEO Ed Delgado in 2016, VFSAC’s Executive Council includes leaders from Auction.com, Alacrity Services, Aspen Grove Solutions, Five Brothers Asset Management, The Five Star Institute, Home Depot, Operation Homefront, Rushmore Loan Management Services, Safeguard Properties, and ServiceMac.Editor’s note: Although VFSAC was founded by Five Star Global President and CEO Ed Delgado, it is an independent working group and is not affiliated with Five Star Global, Five Star Institute, or any of its companies.

The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology When it comes to the war for mobile phone supremacy, Microsoft knows that it is the underdog; that it needs to make some drastic moves to make a dent in the power bases of top dogs Apple and Google/Samsung. So Microsoft appears to have given its marketing wing carte blanche to do whatever it can to snipe at Android and iPhone. That battle has now busted into the realm of social media, specifically Twitter.Horror Story?In an attempt to highlight the Android operating systems susceptibility to malware, the Windows Phone twitter account asked its followers on Wednesday to tell a “horror story” of Android malware with the hashtag #DroidRage.Predictably, this is not working out all that well for Microsoft. We have seen time and again how hashtag marketing campaigns on Twitter have turned against their creators and made the company making the call-to-action look foolish. To a certain extent, that is precisely what is happening to Microsoft and its #DroidRage stunt: It goes on like that.Android Haters?Not all of the Twittersphere is down on #DroidRage though. Android is not a perfect mobile operating system and it is surely open for criticism. There is no perfect mobile operating system, of course, no matter how much the iOS/Android/Windows Phone/BlackBerry fans crow about how theirs is the best. Some tweeters are are taking Microsoft’s invitiation to point out some of Android’s deficiencies, such as individual device performance and operating failures (but not malware so much). What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement The irony of the #DroidRage hashtag is that it targets Android’s proclivity towards malware from a Microsoft-made mobile operating system. Yeah, Microsoft is criticizing someone else about malware. This is the company that has dealt with more than a decade of malicious programmers and spammers attacking its Windows and Internet Explorer platform – mostly because it was the biggest and most susceptible target.Android Does Have Vulnerabilities The Windows Phone attack is not completely without merit. Apple keeps a very tight rein on what enters its app store and it has seen only a handful of malicious apps or file vulnerabilities in iOS. On the other hand, the open source nature of Android and its Google Play app store, along with its large user base, make Android an enticing target for hackers. Security firm Kaspersky Labs notes that more than 9,000 new malicious .dex files were added to its mobile malware database in the third quarter of 2012. Most of those files were designed to attack older versions of the Android operating system, specifically 2.3.6 Gingerbread. One of the accepted rules in the malware industry is that malicious hackers target the biggest user base because that gives them the highest probability of success. Right now, Android is by far the biggest smartphone user base in the world and the ability to hack smartphones (any smartphone, not just Android) gives blackhats the opportunity to obtain unprecedented levels of personal information from their victims. One reason that Windows Phone has not yet seen a large degree of malware attacks or hacking attempts is because its market share is so small compared to iOS and Android. It’s just not cost efficient for malicious hackers to target Windows Phone yet, much less Windows Phone 8. Make no doubt about it, though, if Windows Phone starts selling extremely well, the malicious hackers will come out of the woodwork en masse to probe its vulnerabilities.When it comes to the war for smartphone supremacy, Microsoft needs to do whatever it can to attack the leaders. The biggest opportunity for Windows Phone to succeed is to steal market share from Android and the #DroidRage campaign is an attempt to do just that. The company just needs to make sure that it doesn’t shoot itself in the foot.What do you think of Microsoft’s #DroidRage Twitter campaign? A viable attack against Android or a marketing campaign gone horribly astray? Let us know in the comments.Top image courtesy of developer isidromxz on XDA Forums.

New Delhi, Mar 6 (PTI) A parliamentary panel examining an anti-corruption amendment bill that seeks inclusion of a provision for prior sanction to be obtained by the CBI or police before initiating action against corrupt officials, serving and retired, has got extension till April end.The Select Committee of Rajya Sabha headed by BJP MP Anil Madhav Dave is examining the bill to amend Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988.”The Committee has got extension to submit its report by April 29,” Dave said.The proposed legislation has a provision that “no police officer shall conduct investigation into any offence alleged to have been committed by a public servant” under the PC Act, where the alleged offence is relatable to any recommendation made or decision taken by such public servant in the discharge of his official function or duties without the previous approval of Lokpal (for central government staff) and Lokayuktas (for those working under state governments).The Centre is yet to set up the institution of Lokpal and Lokayuktas–as mandated under the Lokpal and Lokayuktas Act, 2013.Earlier, the Supreme Court had in 2014 held as invalid and unconstitutional a legal provision which makes obtaining sanction of competent authority mandatory for CBI to probe a corruption case against an officer of Joint Secretary rank or above, saying it has the propensity of shielding the corrupt.In its verdict on validity of Section 6A of the Delhi Special Police Establishment (DSPE) Act, which protects senior bureaucrats from being investigated in corruption cases without prior approval of the central government, the apex court had said “the corrupt public servants, higher or lower in rank, are the birds of same feather and have to be dealt with equally”. The DSPE Act governs functioning of the CBI.advertisementHowever, there is no need for prior permission in case of arrest of person on the spot while accepting bribe.The new changes, recommended by the government last year through official amendments in the bill, make it mandatory for a police officer or an agency like CBI to refer any corruption complaint first to Lokpal or Lokayuktas, as the case may be, thus restraining them from taking any action on it.Dave, BJPs Rajya Sabha member from Madhya Pradesh, said the Select Committee has sought comments from states, union territories, NGOs and other stakeholders on various provisions of the bill by this month-end. “We will be submitting our report by April 29,” he told PTI.

Puel tightlipped on Leicester job pressure after Chelsea shockby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLeicester City boss Claude Puel refused to discuss his position after victory at Chelsea.Puel was under scrutiny prior to the match, with reports suggesting the Foxes manager might be fighting for his job over the festive period.”I have nothing to justify,” Puel said. “I am the manager of my team and try always to do my best to get the right balance to protect some players, get the best out of other players, and put a team on the pitch with the ability to win the game.”Asked if the players’ performance at Stamford Bridge showed he had their support, Puel said: “I have no comment about this.”I made my work. It’s not all the time easy. But, all the time, it’s important to analyse the games and not just to look at the ranking in the table.”If we analyse it since the beginning of the season, we’ve had fantastic games and performances sometimes without consistency.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
Man Utd defender Harry Maguire won’t change his styleby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United defender Harry Maguire says his style fits well with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s system.Maguire will not be changing is his willingness to bring the ball out from the back and link play with the midfield and forwards.”I definitely feel like it’s the modern game, bringing it out from the back and it’s something I do thrive on,” Maguire told United Review.”I want to step in and help the team going forward by starting attacks well and threading balls through the lines, to try and get people on the half-turn to play forward.”I think it’s a big part of the game now, for centre-backs not just to defend, but to have a big part in keeping the ball, controlling the game and starting attacks.”My game will improve the more I know my team-mates and the more I experience I have of playing with them, the position they take up, the way they want to receive the ball and the areas in which I receive the ball so I know where my team-mates will be without having to look and try to find them.”It will improve and I’m sure I’ll improve throughout the season, playing with my team-mates more and improving my relationship with Vic (Victor Lindelof). We will improve as a team as well and we’ve got to improve.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, says the policy of free access to health care is a right that every Jamaican should be able to enjoy, regardless of financial status. Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, says the policy of free access to health care is a right that every Jamaican should be able to enjoy, regardless of financial status.Addressing St. Ann business leaders and medical practitioners at the opening of the expanded operating theatre and the renovated male surgical ward as well as the handing over of an ambulance at the St. Ann’s Bay Regional Hospital on October 6, Mr. Holness said he is aware that the policy has brought on added pressure on the public health system with more persons now seeking treatment at hospitals.“I know the difficult circumstances our doctors, nurses and other staff members encounter. I have also taken note of those who have said that this policy cannot work. Indeed, the figures have shown that persons seeking health care have increased since the policy was put in place. It has also shown that by virtue of this, our health facilities have come under stress,” he noted.Mr. Holness said that while he understands both sides of the conversation, “this is not a reason to abandon the policy.”“In fact, we have had introspective discussions within our Cabinet regarding the policy, because we don’t want to burden our Jamaican people purely because we had made a political commitment. But, when we examine the policy, it is the right thing to do,” the Prime Minister said.He further argued that an increase in waiting time at health facilities is not a reason or an excuse to abandon the policy, adding that Health Minister, Dr. the Hon. Christopher Tufton, should be commended for his thorough approach in trying to find a balance.“What we are discovering is that the issue of waiting time, though it may have been triggered by an increased number of Jamaicans seeking health care, is not totally a resource problem,” Mr. Holness pointed out.“In many instances, it is a management problem. It is also an information problem as well as a business process problem. So, the programme that the Hon. Minister has put in place to quantify and to measure the issue of waiting time, so he can better manage the process, is a sound one,” he added.Mr. Holness said that some persons have not been exercising the correct options when trying to access the proper health facilities.“Part of this is to get people who use the health facilities to find the appropriate ones. Some are going to facilities where they could get the same treatment elsewhere at places designed to treat their problems,” he noted.Mr. Holness said persons who are in need of primary care are erroneously going to secondary and tertiary institutions, adding that “by just changing the information flow by educating the user has resulted in a reduction in waiting time.” “I know the difficult circumstances our doctors, nurses and other staff members encounter. I have also taken note of those who have said that this policy cannot work. Indeed, the figures have shown that persons seeking health care have increased since the policy was put in place. It has also shown that by virtue of this, our health facilities have come under stress,” he noted and while he understands both sides of the conversation, “this is not a reason to abandon the policy.” Story Highlights Addressing St. Ann business leaders and medical practitioners at the opening of the expanded operating theatre and the renovated male surgical ward as well as the handing over of an ambulance at the St. Ann’s Bay Regional Hospital on October 6, Mr. Holness said he is aware that the policy has brought on added pressure on the public health system with more persons now seeking treatment at hospitals.
BEIJING, China – China’s global trade balance swung to a rare deficit in March as exports shrank but its surplus with the United States, the centre of a worsening dispute with Washington, stood at $15.4 billion.Exports contracted 2.7 per cent from a year earlier to $174.1 billion, down from the 24.4 per cent growth for the first two months of 2018, customs data showed Friday. Imports rose 14.4 per cent to $179.1 billion, though that was down from 21.7 per cent growth in January and February.“The upshot is that the latest trade data suggest that both domestic and foreign demand held up well in March,” said Julian Evans-Pritchard of Capital Economics in a report.The trade surplus with the United States contracted 13 per cent from a year earlier, while China’s global trade balance swung to a $5 billion deficit.President Donald Trump has approved a possible tariff hike on $50 billion of Chinese goods in response to complaints Beijing steals or pressures foreign companies to hand over technology. Trump is demanding Beijing take steps to narrow its trade deficit with the U.S., which Washington says stood at a record $375.2 billion last year.China runs multibillion-dollar monthly surpluses with Europe and the U.S., which helps to offset deficits with Japan, South Korea and developing countries that supply industrial components and raw materials. The global trade balance often slips into deficit for one month early each year as factories restock following the Lunar New Year holiday.“The biggest risk going forward is clearly that the current trade tensions escalate to the point where meaningful tariff barriers are erected,” said Evans-Pritchard. “But even if this is avoided, trade looks likely to soften slightly over the coming quarters given that global growth now appears past its peak and China’s own economy faces rising headwinds from tighter policy.”Chinese President Xi Jinping announced market-opening measures including a cut in import taxes on autos and an easing of controls on foreign ownership in China’s auto industry.The Commerce Ministry denied Thursday that had anything to do with the dispute with Washington and said negotiations were impossible while Trump was threatening tariff increases on a possible $100 billion list of additional goods.Forecasters have been expecting Chinese economic growth to weaken since late last year after regulators tightened controls to cool a boom in bank lending and real estate sales they worry is driving a dangerous rise in debt.Meanwhile, China’s trade surplus with the 28-nation European Union, its biggest trading partner, shrank by half from a year ago to $3.6 billion.___Online:General Administration of Customs of China (in Chinese): www.customs.gov.cn
