first_img Related Kirby Adams, Chief Executive Officer of Corus, visited Newham in East London to cast his eye over Corus’ investment in triathlon – one of Britain’s fastest growing and most successful sports.Double Olympic gold medallist, Dame Kelly Holmes, joined him as 1,000 children from 21 schools experienced their first taste of a sport in which Britain has five current world champions and a support staff network that is the envy of the rest of the world.Corus is embarking on the fourth year of a corporate partnership with British Triathlon that is committed through to 2013. Newham marks the start of the 2010 Corus Kids of Steel series, which will visit 15 venues in total and reach more people than it ever has in previous years.The children took part in a mini-triathlon at Newham Leisure Centre, involving swimming, cycling and running. Other Corus Kids of Steel venues also have a special connection with the steel company, with key venues including Scunthorpe, Teesside, Corby and South Wales.Adams, who has been Corus CEO since April 2009, said: “Corus has a major emphasis on community involvement. It’s a strength we have as a company and it’s central to our ethos. At many of the Corus Kids of Steel venues we are a major employer and we are committed to the local community. We actively encourage our staff to volunteer at Kids of Steel events to give something back.“Our corporate partnership with British Triathlon is focused on ensuring that the grass roots of the sport are being nurtured, and that children have the opportunity to experience an Olympic sport in their own community. We hope they will be inspired to emulate the successes of athletes such as ITU Triathlon World Champion Alistair Brownlee, but if they don’t, they will know what triathlon is and they will remember Kids of Steel as a highlight.Dame Kelly Holmes commented at the event, “It is fantastic to be here at Kids of Steel today and see hundreds of youngsters getting the chance to experience triathlon. The sport has some very talented young stars coming through at the moment and we need more events like this to help inspire the next generation.”British Triathlon CEO Zara Hyde Peters added, “Corus Kids of Steel is a hugely popular and successful programme and we are delighted to see the series extend to 15 events this year, ensuring that around 12,000 children are exposed to the sport at community level as well as their parents, schoolteachers and a whole army of potential new sport participants.”Kay Shagourie was here today watching her son, Zakeus-Blue, from St Helen’s Primary School in Plaistow, take part, she said, “He took part in Kids of Steel for the first time last year and absolutely loved it. Since then he hasn’t stopped taking part in events and has joined the Newham & Essex Beagles triathlon club.”Eight year old Katie Britto, also from St Helen’s was taking part in her first triathlon. After crossing the finishing line, she said, “I really enjoyed it, especially the running bit and getting my medal. I would like to do more things like this.”www.britishtriathlon.org www.corusgroup.com/triathlon  last_img read more

first_imgby. Julian HattemTarget’s holiday shopping season data breach is costing the nation’s credit unions an estimated $25 to $30 million, they report.A survey from the Credit Union National Association (CUNA), a trade group, found that the hack cost about $5.10 per new credit card issued. Added up, that comes to tens of millions of dollars for the financial institutions.Credit unions and banks have criticized Target over the data breach. Even though the financial institutions had no involvement with the incident, they have to finance the cost of reissuing new cards for shoppers affected by the hack.“Contrary to what some may think, these expenses will not be reimbursed to credit unions and their members by Target or other retailers,” CUNA president Bill Cheney said in a statement. “Rather, credit unions must solely cover these costs of card program administration, including in these circumstances of reacting to a merchant data breach.”Cheney added that the costs could rise, if greater losses are reported as result of the hack. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Nope, it’s not the Millennials. It’s the Mass Affluents.Nielsen defines this group as those households with $250,000 to $1,000,000 in liquid assets, excluding real estate. This is not a huge market segment, as the mass affluent only represent 12 percent of U.S., translating to an estimated 13 million households. Yet, this segment has remarkable buying power and has estimated aggregated income producing assets of just over a whopping $7.5 trillion. This market segment needs your attention now. They present retail bankers with a very attractive sweet spot between the mass-market and affluent market, as they offer a larger, more accessible audience. They have a very distinct lifestyle from the rest of the US in terms of demographics, media consumption, financial attitudes and preferences for financial products and services.Primarily suburban dwellers, where many of you have a brick and mortar presence, these households are generally comprised of empty-nesters and baby boomers. Well educated, often with graduate degrees, they maintain high-level careers in finance, business and management. They are active in their community, socially acclimated and pay attention to physical fitness. Based on analysis of high-asset households, the Mass Affluent tends to be found fairly far outside the nation’s large metros, locating in smaller markets. Large pockets of Mass Affluences can be found in “second cities” like Hartford, CT, Santa Barbara, CA, San Antonio, TX and Richmond, VA— places noted for both livability and more affordability.The Mass Affluents are avid consumers of media and consume news via TV, online and print. These are homeowners that also consume media focused on their personal lives and spend a great deal of time watching the Food Network, HGTV and PBS. Remarkably, they are becoming avid Facebook and Pinterest fans. This segment does not favor broadcast TV and they are frequent DVR users. HINT: Don’t plan on using TV ads to reach this segment! Interestingly, they blend digital media consumption with good ole fashion newspapers and magazines. This segment is 25% more likely than average to access the Internet from work and when they go online, it’s business, finance and investments that are top of mind. They stay informed of financial topics and news, while also allowing time to visit their accounts by tracking assets via sites like Bankrate and Bloomberg. They want to see portfolio values augmented with content that enriches their financial well-being. HINT: Sorry, your newsletter is not reaching them. HINT: If all you offer is plain vanilla online banking – it’s a quick glance and they are out of there!The Mass Affluents are not afraid to enhance their home with grand improvements, like kitchen remodels and home additions.  HINT: This market could be home equity heaven. Before I forget, It’s important to note, particularly as you roll out your mobile products, almost 60 percent of higher income consumers, like the Mass Affluent, own a smartphone and 31 percent own a tablet. HINT: If your rollout messaging strategy is solely focused on the millennials, you will fail. If you think your future or brand strategy is solely dependent on the Millenials, you are in for a rude awakening.Reaching this highly concentrated group can be difficult, especially through traditional direct marketing channels. With the Mass Affluent, a strong online presence is important and digital marketing is an effective way to reach this valuable audience. Note however, they are 8% less likely than average to access a Internet browser using a mobile device. Perhaps this is because they spend more time than average, on the web while at work.While the Millennials have generated plenty of market buzz, and certainly should be an attractive market segment to financial institutions, I believe the Mass Affluents also offer great opportunity to credit unions and community banks. The next time you turn to HGTV or pick up a copy of Kiplinger’s, take a look at the advertisers. The big banks, card companies and investment firms, may know something you don’t know.last_img read more

first_imgJan 17, 2013Ebola antibodies found in Bangladesh batsFruit bats in Bangladesh carry antibodies against two Ebola virus strains, suggesting that the geographic range of the virus extends to south Asia and adding to evidence that bats may be the natural reservoirs. The study, led by researchers from the nonprofit global organization EcoHealth Alliance, appeared yesterday in Emerging Infectious Diseases. The team sampled a variety of bat species in four Bangladesh districts from April 2010 to March 2011. Blood tests revealed that 5 (3.5%) of the 276 bats were positive for antibodies to Ebola Zaire and Reston viruses. All five were healthy male fruit bats. Earlier studies have found evidence of Ebola antibodies in bats from Africa, the Philippines, and Spain, and in October 2012 researchers reported similar findings in bats from China. Lead author Kevin Olival, PhD, said in an EcoAlliance press release, “This study has been vital to better understand the wildlife reservoirs and potential transmission routes for Ebola virus in Bangladesh and the region.”Jan 16 Emerg Infect Dis studyJan 16 EcoHealth Alliance press releaseOct 23, 2012, CIDRAP News scan “Ebola antibodies found in Chinese bats”Uganda declared Ebola-freeUganda’s health ministry yesterday declared an end to an Ebola outbreak in Luweero district that began last November, according to AllAfrica News yesterday. The statement means the area has gone 42 days without detecting any cases, after seven cases were reported, with six of them in relatives living in the same sub-county. It follows by a month an Ebola-free declaration in Kibaale district.Jan 16 AllAfrica articleStudy: Fecal infusion boosted drug treatment for recurrent C diff infectionIn a small Dutch trial, fecal infusion worked significantly better than a standard antibiotic regimen for ridding patients of recurrent Clostridium difficile infections, according to a report in the New England Journal of Medicine yesterday. The researchers say antibiotic treatment for a first C difficile infection fails to effect a lasting cure in 15% to 26% of patients. In the study, patients were randomly assigned to receive one of three treatments: (1) 500 mg of oral vancomycin four times a day for 4 days, followed by bowel lavage and subsequent infusion of a solution of donor feces through a nasoduodenal tube; (2) a standard vancomycin regimen (500 mg four times a day for 14 days); or (3) a standard vancomycin regimen followed by bowel lavage. Thirteen of 16 (81%) patients in the infusion group were free of C difficile–related diarrhea after the first infusion, the report says. The other three patients were given a second infusion with feces from a different donor, after which symptoms cleared in two of them. The C difficile infection resolved in 4 of 13 (31%) patients who received vancomycin alone and in 3 of 13 (23%) who received vancomycin and bowel lavage. Both outcomes were significantly poorer than that in the infusion group (P < .001). There were no significant differences in adverse events, except that the infusion group had mild diarrhea and cramping on the infusion day. After the infusions, the recipients had greater fecal bacterial diversity, similar to that observed in the donors.Jan 16 N Engl J Med articleEvidence of Lyme-like disease found in US patientsA disease closely related to Lyme and also transmitted by deer ticks has been detected in an 80-year-old New Jersey woman, and 18 other patients in the Northeast have developed antibodies to the disease, according to a case report and letter in today's New England Journal of Medicine. The woman, who had been treated for Lyme disease in 2006 and 2007, was assessed after 4 months of symptoms. She had been found to have cancer in 2005 and was immunocompromised. During her workup, physicians detected Borrelia miyamotoi in her cerebrospinal fluid via microscopy and polymerase chain reaction. The B miyamotoi spirochete is closely related to B burgdorferi, the cause of Lyme disease, and both are transmitted by Ixodes ticks, according to the case report. In the letter, scientists from Yale and other US institutions reported analyzing serum samples taken from patients from New England and New York from 1990 through 2010. They found that 18 of the 875 patients (2%) had antibodies to B miyamotoi, with 3 of them having seroconversion associated with symptoms, suggesting recent infection. None of these 3 was immunocompromised. The authors say their findings suggest that "B miyamotoi infection may be prevalent in areas where Lyme disease is endemic in the United States."Jan 17 N Engl J Med case reportJan 17 N Engl J Med letterlast_img read more
