Chipotle sales to benefit charity

first_imgStudents will be able to support a great cause while enjoying a tasty burrito Thursday when Saint Mary’s Dance Marathon hosts a giveback night at the Chipotle in Eddy Street Commons. From 2 p.m. to 10 p.m., 50 percent of the proceeds generated will benefit the Riley Hospital for Children when patrons bring in a voucher advertising the giveback. Dance Marathon vice president of marketing Kate Kellogg said students should take time out from studying for finals to visit the event. “It’s a good break from studying,” Kellogg said. “It’s a good way to give back to the community.” Kellogg said Dance Marathon chose to partner with Chipotle because of its close proximity to both the Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s campuses. “It’s easy access for students and freshmen who don’t have cars,” she said. “They can just take the trolley.” Although the Riley Hospital for Children is located in Indianapolis, it helps treat children of local families, and some of them attended the Dance Marathon family dinner last Friday. “It’s really neat to see that Riley doesn’t just treat children from Indianapolis, but children from all over,” Kellogg said, “[Riley] is doing great work all over.” Last year SMC Dance Marathon held a similar giveback night and earned $2,000 for its cause. Kellogg said that Dance Marathon is aiming to match that amount this year. If students can’t make it to the giveback event but still want to help Dance Marathon, Kellogg said the group will host a Buffalo Wild Wings giveback event next semester. Students will also be able to register as a dancer for the Dance Marathon event in the spring during three days in January and three days in February, Kellogg said. Kellogg said she and the other members of Dance Marathon are passionate about the event because they’ve met some of the children affected. “We went to a luncheon at the hospital and [saw] the children treated at Riley and how great the families’ experience was,” she said. “[We heard] the children’s stories of growth and feeling and the way the hospital touches them.”last_img read more

Narco-populism: A Control Model for Potential Study

first_imgIn Colombia, for example, the cocaine barons’ main icon was Pablo Escobar (1980-1990); his luxuries included sponsoring soccer teams, using planes for advertising, building affordable housing in the lower-income areas of Medellin, using the press to portray himself as a victim of persecution, and many others. What takes place, in fact, is large-scale bartering. They take advantage of the extreme deprivation in poor communities, such as in the favelas (slums) within Rio de Janeiro, and buy support from those poor populations at a bargain. If that does not sound familiar, let’s look at some of the most classic cases. Of course, technology accompanies the process, and cyberspace is often used for those practices. The most critical phase usually takes place when financing drugs is used as a way to provide authenticity for illegally obtained power. The main actions usually include hiring lawyers, recruiting people from Human Rights organizations and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), financing political campaigns, and the ensuing election of mayors and members of parliament. Finally, after more than two decades, there are still people in Medellin who lay flowers at Pablo Escobar’s grave every day. In Rio de Janeiro’s favelas, young drug dealers still spray paint walls with graffiti of Rogério Lengruber’s initials and those of other gang leaders who have been dead for over a decade. By Dialogo December 21, 2015 Congratulations to Colonel (R-1) Montenegro for the excellent approach to narco-populism. Excellent overview of what is happening in Public Security, especially in the State of Rio de Janeiro. Organ system failure that seeks to provide stability, favoring and making space for traffickers to occupy the State’s vacancy. Organized crime occupies the spaces where the government is absent in many different ways and always with a lot of creativity. With minor variations, some of the activities have found a scenario that is quite fertile for replication in Latin American countries. The context is usually adorned with the same ingredients: indifference to poverty, decline of the elite, demoralized politicians, social contrasts, corruption, and government inefficiency. This phenomenon, which is now called narco-populism, deserves to be studied from a multidisciplinary perspective by professionals with different viewpoints. A flawed interpretation by less enlightened individuals and the gains of unethical opportunists make this scenario a direct threat to democracies that are still in the process of consolidation. In Mexico, “Chapo” Guzman is still seen by a significantly large part of the population as the great “sheriff” of Sinaloa for having distributed “confiscated” land, food, and construction materials. The drug-trafficking leaders in Rio de Janeiro’s favelas have been financing funk parties (rave-like dances), medical treatment, home repairs, Christmas presents, fireworks for New Year’s Eve, soccer tournaments, etc. since the 1990s. At some events, people sing songs praising drug trafficking, sex, and hostility against the police with the connivance of corrupt elements within law enforcement. This scenario is favorable to drug traffickers who purport to be the “messiahs of the poor,” an opportunistic revision of the Robin Hood character. Among disadvantaged populations, they profess to be providers of wealth and instant justice and even claim to be mediators for family issues. This is just one of the features that characterize the failure of a democratic, rule-of-law state. *Sampaio Task Force Commander during the pacification of the Alemão and Penha Slum Complexes in 2011 and 2012. M.S. in Military Sciences. Only by understanding the meaning of narco-populism can Latin American countries correctly choose effective actions to fight this scourge and encourage the population to adopt the right attitude. There are other similar activities that still continue, including the systematic use of violence, targeted killings, infiltration, blackmail, extortion, threats to their direct enemies, and impressive escapes from prisons with the use of helicopters or underground tunnels. last_img read more

Diebold & Samsung unveil face-based ATM technology

first_img 20SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr ATM giant Diebold Nixdorf and IT services company Samsung SDS America have revealed technology that could soon allow credit union members and other financial services customers to get money out of an ATM using only their faces.The technology, debuted this month, lets members set up ATM withdrawals from anywhere via their mobile banking apps. Users then go to an ATM, tap their phones to a near field communications (NFC) reader on the ATM and authenticate with facial recognition software on their mobile devices. The terminal then dispenses their cash.The process is supposed to take less than half the time of a standard ATM transaction, according to Samsung SDA America.Though many financial institutions are already rolling out cardless ATM-transaction technology, the Diebold/Samsung concept provides a way to use an ATM without needing a card or a PIN. continue reading »last_img read more

Danish roundup: PFA, Unipension, MP Pension, ISP

first_imgThe firm said in its report that it had changed its investment strategy before the start of this year to take account of the more volatile markets and the very low levels of interest rates.“This has meant a reduction in risk within the portfolio by bringing down the equities exposure, as well as an increase in the more stabilising asset classes such as property,” it said.As a consequence, all PFA customers came through the first half without negative returns, in spite of the negative market movements.PFA Group’s total assets rose to DKK584bn at the end of June from DKK545bn at the end of December.Meanwhile, the three pension funds run by Unipension – MP Pension (MP) for Danish M.A.s and M.Sc.s, the Architects’ Pension Fund (AP) and the Pension Fund for Agricultural Academics and Veterinary Surgeons (PJD) – reported first half pre-tax investment returns of 3%, 2.8% and 3.4% respectively.This compares with full-year 2015 returns of 4.4%, 5.1% and 4.7% for the three funds.All three pension funds said their half-year results included extra costs due to their ongoing separation from the Unipension cooperation they have worked within for the last few years.But administrative expenses were lower than had been expected, the pension funds said. MP Pension’s figures showed Danish equities to be its poorest-performing asset class in the six-month month period, making a 3.8% loss, while gilt-edged bonds were the strongest performers, with a 7.5% return.The pension funds announced in December that the Unipension name would disappear by the end of 2016, after AP and PJD decided to move their schemes to labour-market pensions provider Sampension, with MP Pension continuing alone.In other news, Engineers’ pension fund ISP, which is outsourced to commercial mutual provider AP Pension, saw the return on its guaranteed pension product surge to 12% in the first half of this year from 0.4% for the whole of 2015.Announcing interim results, the pension fund said the high return on the product was due in particular to the fall in interest rates in the period, which produced bond-price rises, as well as gains on its interest-rate hedging.However, the low level of prevailing interest rates also meant ISP had to put more money aside to be able to live up to its guarantees, the pension fund said.Yields on market-rate pensions were between 1.1% and 3.5% in the first half, depending on risk profile, compared with a range of 1.1% to 2.4% for the whole of 2015.Karin Elbæk Nielsen, director at ISP, said: “It was an area of focus for the board to maintain the positive development in returns, which was not as good in 2015.” Denmark’s largest commercial pension provider PFA Pension reported a fall in investment returns in the first half of this year but said steps it had taken to cut risk had kept profits positive despite negative markets.The return on PFA’s average interest rate product fell to 1.9% in January to June from 3.2% in the same period last year, while the return related to market-rate products fell to 2% from 6.6%.In absolute terms, however, PFA’s total investment return for the six-month period was DKK21bn (€2.8bn), up from DKK8bn.Allan Polack, chief executive at PFA, said: “I am very pleased with the return of DKK21bn, most of all on behalf of our customers because, in spite of a very challenging investment environment in the first half year – with low oil prices, Brexit, negative yields and other significant moments of instability – they can see a positive return on their pension assets.”last_img read more
