Why your corporate culture matters

first_img continue reading » 7SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Brand. Values. Culture. We throw these words around quite a bit in corporate America, often with minimal regard for what they actually mean or the impact they have. Sometimes we even hang them on the wall as proof that we’re important enough to have them.None of that matters if you don’t practice what you preach (or prominently display). Do your employees even know what your bank or credit union values? Perhaps the better question is do the behaviors within your bank or credit union reflect what you say your culture is?Every credit union, every bank, every business has an internal culture whether they recognize it or not. The way management treats employees is part of your culture. The way employees treat each other is part of your culture. The way your bank or credit union makes your employees feel when they are at work is a big part of your culture.Why does any of this matter? Because your corporate values and your internal culture impact your brand strength. If your internal culture is weak or inconsistent, your brand will be, too.last_img read more

Croatia is experiencing the growth of nautical tourism, but the problem is the lack of berths

first_imgCroatia is growing nautical tourism, but the problem of lack of berths must be solved – are the conclusions of the meeting of nautical associations of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce with relevant institutions in nautical, which took place yesterday as part of a two-day conference Nautical Tourism Days organized by the Croatian Chamber of Commerce at sea and communications on all important topics for nautical tourism. “With a fleet of more than four thousand chartered vessels, with more than 140 nautical tourism ports, 17.000 berths, then more than a million cruise passengers in 2018, Croatia is a nautical superpower and we are one of the most important nautical destinations, not only in the Mediterranean but and globally “, said the vice president for agriculture and tourism of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce, Dragan Kovacevic. Last year’s revenues of nautical tourism ports reached 857 million kuna, while the average consumption of a guest on a charter boat is 183 euros per day, which is more than double the daily consumption of the average Croatian tourist.  “Our expectations are to repeat last year’s results, when we had a decline in vessels in transit, which is attributed to the recession in Italy, then our price increase, and the reckless increase in sojourn tax. At the Marina Association, we will be satisfied if the results are at last year’s level. We are optimistic despite caution. We have become annoyed with ourselves as we repeat the problem of high VAT rates in tourism, and our competitiveness is further hampered by the awakening of some destinations such as Turkey and Greece.”, Said Sean Lisjak.  The President of the Association of Service Providers on Boats – HGK charter Paško Klisović pointed out a number of problems encountered by members of this association. “Part of the problem can be solved by better promotion in some markets, especially in the US. We need to motivate Americans to come in greater numbers as far as our nautical tourism is concerned. Existing markets are stagnating because we have reached the limit on them. Last year, our fleet grew by seven percent, and the number of our guests increased by less than two percent. The fleet will grow this year as well, and we will be pleased if we repeat the past. We are a little worried about the fact that, as far as it is concerned booking, Greece has become the most sought-after charter destination. These are trends and the right moves need to be made”, Said Klisovic. Vice President for Agriculture and Tourism of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce Dragan Kovačević The president of the HGK marina association, Sean Lisjak, said that it was very important for the members of this association to find out where they were stuck regarding the adoption of the Law on Maritime Property and Seaports because they promised that the law would start parliamentary procedure at the end of last year. “The money is spent not only on vessels, but also on all other forms of tourism, and more than 30 percent; from culture, sports, entertainment to eno and gastronomic offer”, Said Kovacevic, adding that these are all parameters that speak of nautical tourism in the Republic of Croatia as one that is becoming the most dynamic tourist product, just like in the world, and that it has huge potential, but that we need to make wise moves to direct its further development. “The Ministry of the Sea has started drafting three reform laws that define maritime affairs, two of which – the Law on Harbor Master’s Offices and the Maritime Code – came into force this year.”, Said Assistant Minister of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure Andjelko Petrinic and added that the third law – the Law on Maritime Property and Seaports (ZPDML) is ready, more or less all the objections of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce, the Association of Marinas and HUP have been adopted. we expect at the public consultation in June, ie its adoption in the fourth quarter of this year. In addition, he pointed to the problem of lack of nautical berths. last_img read more

Governor Wolf: Pennsylvania is Prepared for Widespread Winter Weather Impacts

first_img Do NOT call 9-1-1 to report power outages. Those calls take dispatchers away from other emergencies and can also slow a storm response because you’re not talking directly to the utility.Tips to help stay safe until power is restored:Use flashlights or battery-operated lanterns for emergency lighting. Do not use candles or other potential fire hazards.If you use a generator, do NOT run it inside a home or garage. Also, connect the equipment you want to power directly to the outlets on the generator, not your home’s electrical system, which could shock or injure utility crews working on nearby power lines.Turn off lights and electrical appliances (except for the refrigerator and freezer). When power comes back on, it may come back with momentary “surges” or “spikes” that can damage equipment.After you turn the lights off, turn one lamp on so you will know when power is restored. Wait at least 15 minutes after power is restored before turning on other appliances.Check on elderly neighbors and those with special needs who might need additional assistance.Electric power outages can affect gas furnaces and other appliances. If they do not function properly when power is restored call a professional for service.If you smell natural gas, get everyone out of the building immediately. Leave the door open and do NOT use phones, switch lights or turn appliances on or off, or take any other action while inside the building. After you are safely outside, call 9-1-1 from your cell phone or neighbor’s home.“I cannot stress enough the importance for everyone to heed weather forecasts, listen to directions from emergency officials, and plan accordingly,” Governor Wolf said. SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Press Release,  PSA,  Weather Safety Harrisburg, PA – With winter weather forecasted to impact much of Pennsylvania Thursday morning through Friday morning, Governor Tom Wolf said state agencies are prepared and is asking all Pennsylvanians to prepare, too.“While weather forecasts are calling for varied types and levels of precipitation across the commonwealth, we must be prepared for all possible weather scenarios,” Governor Wolf said. “Pennsylvania’s state agencies are geared up to ensure resources and staff are prepared and ready to help.”The Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency’s (PEMA) Commonwealth Response Coordination Center will be activated with extra watch officers staffing PEMA overnight and the situation awareness and logistics units beginning at 8:00 AM tomorrow; PennDOT area command will be active at PEMA beginning at midnight tonight. All other agencies, including the Pennsylvania State Police, the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs, and the Pennsylvania Turnpike, are on alert.“PEMA is in close contact with county emergency management teams to ensure each has what it needs to help locally,” PEMA Executive Deputy Director Jeff Thomas said. “We conduct calls as needed to hear from each county – for a status report and to attend to any unmet needs. But, let me stress that our counties are prepared and ready to handle any need.”PennDOT urges motorists traveling during winter weather to make sure their gas tank is full, and they pack an emergency kit, which should include non-perishable food, water, blanket, small shovel, and warm clothes. Remember also any special needs, such as baby food, pet supplies or medications.“We have been preparing for winter since the last one ended, and we’re calling on the public to be our partners in safe travel,” PennDOT Secretary Leslie S. Richards said. “Drivers should check travel conditions before they leave home, allow plenty of time, and drive according to conditions, not their schedule.”Motorists should make certain their vehicles are weather-ready with working windshield wipers, adequate wiper fluid, and snow tires or tires with adequate tread depth for ice and snow.PennDOT is prepared with plow trucks, materials, and other equipment ready. Crews will be working around the clock if necessary to keep roads safe and passable.With the varied types of precipitation expected with the storm, PennDOT is pretreating roadways where conditions warrant based on anticipated precipitation and road temperatures.PennDOT anticipates reducing speed limits as necessary throughout the storm, and while no vehicle restrictions are planned at this time, they could be implemented if conditions warrant.Motorists are reminded that roadways will not be free of snow while precipitation is falling. With freezing temperatures, roads that look wet may be icy, and extra caution is needed when approaching bridges and highway ramps where ice can form without warning. Motorists should leave plenty of space – six car lengths – when following a truck that is plowing or spreading winter materials.Motorists can check conditions and snow-plow locations on more than 40,000 roadway miles, including color-coded winter conditions on 2,900 miles, by visiting www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 860 traffic cameras.511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional Twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission provided the following tips for consumers to prepare and stay safe:Pre-Storm:Write down, print or save toll-free outage hotlines for your electric utility and/or your natural gas utility, which are listed on your monthly bills and posted on the PUC website.Save the website address for your utility’s outage reporting system, which can provide updates on repair and restoration efforts. Those electric utility outage sites and natural gas company websites are available on the PUC website.Keep your cell phone charged, so you can contact your utility company, other emergency services and family members during any power outage.Secure necessary food, medicine and other supplies, including batteries for flashlights.Should you lose power during a storm, consider the following:Call your utility hotline to report outages – do not assume that the utility already knows about your outage or that others have already called.Do NOT touch or approach any fallen lines. If you have a downed power line or another hazardous situation, call 9-1-1 and then contact your utility.Stay away from objects or puddles in contact with downed power lines.Do NOT try to remove trees or limbs from power lines.Pre-charge cellular phones or keep a portable cell phone charger on hand. Plan to use a corded phone, cordless phones won’t work without electricity. November 14, 2018 Governor Wolf: Pennsylvania is Prepared for Widespread Winter Weather Impactslast_img read more

Kashmir belongs to Kashmiris, not India or Pakistan: Shahid Afridi

first_imgNew Delhi: Former Pakistan crickerter Shahid Afridi has said that Kashmir belongs to the people of the valley and not India or Pakistan beside urging the two nations to resolve the issue through a Kashmiri-owned, Kashmiri-led peace process. Afridi in his autobiography named ‘Game Changer’, also said that Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan must do more for Kashmir and its people.”Kashmir belongs to the Kashmiris. Not to Indians. Not to Pakistanis. That debate comes later. But first and foremost, Kashmir is for the Kashmiri people themselves,” the 39-year-old said in the book, co-written with journalist Wajahat S. Khan.Meanwhile, also showering praise on Pakistan PM Imran, the cricketer said: “From his peace overtures (I quote his first speech, about Pakistan taking two steps towards peace if the Indians take one step — an approach I personally believe in too) to opening the Kartarpur corridor and releasing the Indian Air Force pilot shot down by the Pakistanis in February 2019, peaceful relations with India are essential. Both countries, even the subcontinental region, will flourish.”However, Imran Khan must do more about Kashmir. We have to resolve that issue. We have to save the Kashmiri people, and we must involve them in the peace process. Nobody in the Indian subcontinent has suffered or struggled more than Kashmiris.””So much resources go into guarding this territory. So much goes into policing the Line of Control. So many mouths can get fed, so many minds can be nourished, if India and Pakistan resolve the Kashmir issue through a Kashmiri-owned, Kashmiri-led peace process,” Afridi added.

Braun: Expect big things from Bo’s squad

first_imgJoe Krabbenhoft can’t be pleased with the way he ended his Wisconsin career.His 0-for-2, zero point, five foul effort in the Badgers’ 60-49 loss to the Xavier Musketeers on Sunday doesn’t remind avid Wisconsin fans about what he brought to the table during his four years, or even this season at UW.The game, however, was a different story.Leading by two points at halftime, and after they opened the second half with a 6-1 run, it sure looked like the Badgers were ready to waltz their way into the Sweet 16 for the second straight year.Not so fast.Like countless other times this season, Wisconsin wilted under the pressure, blowing the game, and this time its season altogether. Talk about a letdown.Now that I’m done with venting my frustration, I’ll get to my point.Even with that loss, the Badgers did something very few thought they could accomplish; they won a game in the NCAA Tournament — something they couldn’t even do in the Big Ten Tournament a week earlier.ESPN bracketologist Joe Lunardi, who’s usually right about who should be in and out of the NCAA Tournament, went as far to say that the Badgers didn’t belong in the field of 65.Well, if that’s the case, then neither did Florida State.The Badgers beat out the Seminoles in overtime in the first round, silencing any critics and setting up their second round loss to Xavier.But don’t take that first round win away from them. Florida State is a very underrated team, and any time a No. 12 seed upsets a No. 5 in the first round, it has to be something worth noting.Just for reference, it’s worth mentioning the Badgers’ few triumphs in the loss.Trevon Hughes seemed to conquer his sometimes-shaky play during the regular season, Keaton Nankivil showed he can nail the deep jumper, and Jordan Taylor earned every minute he played.OK, maybe all those things didn’t get the win, but simply put, I can’t help but be proud of the way the Badgers turned around their season.Sure, they didn’t come close to the 31 wins they accumulated last year, but they kept Bo Ryan’s NCAA Tournament streak alive, and made some noise in the process by beating the Seminoles.Now, though, it’s time to get excited. With three starters returning, not including Nankivil, Taylor, and freshman Rob Wilson — all of whom received ample playing time this season — this whole rebuilding phase will be all but a memory come 2010.As for Krabbenhoft, while he might not be happy with the way his last game went, you can be pretty sure he’ll look back on this season as the one in which he learned the most about life and basketball.Last year, the closest thing to adversity the Badgers faced was two losses to Purdue and a tough loss to Davidson in the NCAA Tournament.This season, although they weren’t as successful, you can argue the Badgers accomplished as much with what they had than any other team in the Big Ten. For that, you can thank Ryan, Krabbenhoft, and Marcus Landry.Few believed that the same team that lost six straight games in January would be able to bounce back to a fourth place finish in the Big Ten. Comparably, Notre Dame and Georgetown, both of which were ranked in the top 10 this season, were never able to reverse their losing ways.So, while looking back at a lost season might be what everyone is doing at this point, remember what Wisconsin has to look forward to. Krabbenhoft may be upset right now, but at the same time, he’s probably pretty darn sure he’ll be watching his alma mater in the big dance next year.Jonah is a sophomore majoring in journalism and Hebrew and Semitic studies.

Clippers’ Jamal Crawford wins record third Sixth-Man award

first_img“It’s always weird being up here by yourself, honestly, because this is truly a team award,” he said. “If you think about it, I made some shots, but I couldn’t have done it without being drawn plays or if I didn’t get the ball in the right spot from my teammates and the picks weren’t set.”Crawford’s teammates took in the ceremony. Blake Griffin praised Crawford.“Jamal’s impact on our team goes so far beyond what you can actually see,” he said. “It’s the things in the locker room, it’s the calming presence on the bench, the steady hand. And in a lot of ways, this award, I think, means so much to guys in this position because a lot of those guys who are sixth men could go anywhere and probably start on a lot of teams.”Crawford tallied 51 first-place votes and 341 total points from a panel of 130 sportswriters and broadcasters. Andre Iguodala of Golden State finished second with 33 first-place votes and 288 points and Enes Kanter of Oklahoma City was third with 19 first-place votes and 182 points.Kevin McHale, Ricky Pierce and Detlef Schrempf had shared the record with Crawford for winning the Sixth Man award twice. “It’s more about not cheating the game, being in love with the game,” Crawford said.Crawford averaged 14.2 points, 2.3 assists and 26.9 minutes during the regular season for the Clippers, who will take on Portland in Game 2 of their first-round playoff series Wednesday night at Staples Center; the Clippers lead 1-0.Crawford also won the award in 2009-10 with Atlanta and 2013-14 with the Clippers, whose coach – Doc Rivers – put Crawford’s third such honor in perspective.“To be the only guy to score a certain amount of points in the NBA – (Kareem Abdul-) Jabbar – the only guy to get a lot of assists – (John) Stockton, I mean, when you become the only guy in history, that means a lot,” Rivers said.To Crawford, his individual success is not so individual.

He was named NBA Sixth Man of the Year for a record third time earlier in the day. At 36, he became the oldest to win the award, breaking his own record when he won it two years ago at 34.Crawford, in his 16th season, was asked how he can still look like he’s 25 on the court.“Well, my wife (Tori) makes me drink a lot of water,” Crawford said.
