WASHINGTON – The American Bankers Association – through its subsidiary the Corporation for American Banking – announced today at the 2017 American Bankers Association (ABA) Regulatory Compliance Conference that ABA has endorsed the Predict360 Compliance Management solution of 360factors Inc. A leading cloud-based Enterprise Risk and Compliance Management platform technology and services company powered by artificial intelligence, 360factors helps companies improve business performance by reducing risk and ensuring compliance.

360factors’ Predict 360 compliance management solution earned the ABA’s endorsement for its ability to help banks respond to new regulations and manage regulatory burden using artificial intelligence (AI) and natural language processing (NLP) technology.   The solution automates and reduces the effort involved in managing constantly-changing regulatory compliance requirements.

 “We are proud to have ABA endorse our compliance management solution.” said Carl McCauley, CEO at 360factors. “Our Predict360 solution helps banks and financial services firms drive business transformation across all their governance, risk and compliance functions using a single, integrated platform. It increases efficiencies, reduces cost and improves quality for companies managing regulatory changes, operational risks, compliance, and policies and procedures.”

“360factors’ Predict360 solution was selected because of the seamless integration of all their modules in their compliance management suite, the ease of-use of their solution, and their focus and pricing advantages for small, regional and large banks,” said Bryan Luke, chairman of ABA’s Endorsed Solutions Banker Advisory Council. “Unlike many of the other compliance management solutions which were only affordable by large institutions that could devote many months and significant manpower to deploying their solutions, 360factors stood out in the evaluation based on their capabilities to serve the needs of smaller community and regional banks, as well as the larger banks, that comprise a significant part of ABA’s membership base.” Luke is also president and COO of Hawaii National Bank in Honolulu.

360factors’ Predict360 Compliance Management solution is easy to use, quick to deploy and has a low total cost of ownership to help reduce their clients’ efforts in managing their compliance and regulatory requirements.

THE WORLD’S LEAST EXPENSIVE ELECTRIC CAR TO OWN AND OPERATE

Written by admin on Jun 9th, 2017 | Filed under: Press Releases
ZEV Electric, West Virginia, USA is now delivering the $5,700 T3-1 Micro car to its first customers.  The vehicle is a unique, 2 door, three seat, three wheel car that was designed specifically to be the lowest possible cost electric vehicle to buy and operate.  The introductory price of only $5700 should certainly seize the low priced purchase price record.

ZEV Electric is one of the oldest companies in the electric vehicle business, having started making electric motorcycles and scooters 11 years ago.  ZEV currently makes the world’s longest range and fastest electric motor scooters with speeds to over 100 mph and range   to 185 miles.  It has the largest model line of electric 2 & 3 wheelers in the world.  But – ZEV was getting calls and emails from the 97% of the population who did not drive motorcycles about what they wanted. The result was a market driven response to people contacting the company and asking specifically for the development of something small, that would be the absolute lowest cost to buy and own.  Contrary to what is normally assumed, would be buyers did not want big range nor speed.  They recognized that their use pattern would be to drive to work or for errands in a round trip of less than 30 miles.  These same would be buyers recognized that their driving would not involve highway driving, so speeds need not be high.  Generally, commuter vehicles also only have one person in the vehicle.  So speeds of 30 mph, and range of 35 miles would fulfill many people’s needs.  A charging time of 4.5 hours off of a normal 120 house wall plug (faster on 220) lets people charge at work or at home, or about anywhere they can find a plug.  For the next tier of customer use needing more range, ZEV offers a long range version of the T3-1 with a larger capacity lithium battery pack for $8,900 for 50 mile range.  http://zelectricvehicle.com/31.html

To make the vehicle as low cost to operate, ZEV created the vehicle so that it could be licensed as a motorcycle with extremely low insurance and registration costs.  In many states the vehicle can be driven without a license, or insurance, or tags.  Many other states have rules that allow enclosed trike motorcycle to be driven on a car license. Insurance companies in the past have issued full coverage for ZEV for between $90 and $130 a year.

To make the vehicle as low of a cost as possible to build and purchase, the concept was to use motor scooter and cycle body construction with injection molded plastic to form the body over a steel tube chassis to drive the cost down.  A fully painted body kit can be installed by virtually any owner with a screwdriver and a small socket set for less than $900 should any damage be incurred.  A set of replacement battery are $350 and expected to last at least two years. These batteries can be replaced by just about anyone with basic hand tools.  The motor is an AC induction motor of 4 Kw.

To make the vehicle usable by as many people as possible and to conform to the motor scooter regulations, the vehicle has all controls on the handlebars.  No foot controls at all.  The T3-1 has a flat floor at a low height to aid entry/exit.  The double doors with roll up windows open almost straight out from the vehicle sides. There is space behind the rider’s seat for a folding wheelchair.  The rider’s seat is on a sliding track and tilts to let two people enter the rear seat or cargo area.  The rider’s seat can accommodate 6 ft tall riders and leave headroom. A 350 lb rider has also driven the vehicle.


             

As a T3-1 costs less than a golf cart, and has far more range and speed, it is expected to offer an alternative to people who live in areas where golf carts are used on roads, but not be limited to the often special road areas carts can be restricted to.  As UTV and ATV vehicles are not usually allowed on roads, the T3-1 can be an alternative to those.  The T3-1 is also faster than NEV vehicles and costs far less also.

ZEV are delivered direct to the customer’s residence in areas where there are no dealers.  ZEV expects that the T3-1 will become the first of an expanding line of faster and longer range trikes to be released and fully complementary to its current line of 2 wheeled vehicles into the future.

“AFFIRMATIVE ACTION UNDER TRUMP– WHERE CAN IT GO?” ask former White House spokesman Robert Weiner and policy analyst Paula Hong.

Written by admin on Jun 7th, 2017 | Filed under: Press Releases

(Washington, DC)–Minorities should remain hopeful under the Trump administration, but mist overcome serious obstacles, argue Robert Weiner and Paula Hong in an op-ed just released in the Michigan Chronicle, named twelve times as the #1 African-American newspaper in America. .

Weiner and Hong begin, “Few remember but in December 2015, presidential candidate Donald Trump called Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia out during his campaign, saying he, “did not like” Scalia’s belief that minorities, specifically African Americans, would be better off attending ‘slower-track schools’—disregarding affirmative action’s purpose to provide minorities with opportunities.”

They proceed, “The hope for minorities that President Trump would remain ‘fine with affirmative action’ was short-lived with Trump’s appointment of Betsy DeVos on February 7, 2017–who denied 77 universities funding requests on Thursday, May 25, 2017 for inadequate ‘formatting rules’ which she blamed Obama for creating.”

They continue, “The contradictory decisions left minorities despondent about the increasingly right wing influenced Court and White House on issues such as education, health care, small business support, food aid and police reforms.”

They state, “The New York Times on May 28, 2017 and the Washington Post on May 29, 2017 had lead stories titled ‘Minority Advocates Say Trump’s Budget Will Hurt Their Causes’ and ‘Trump administration plans to minimize civil rights efforts in agencies’ following the crisis of President Trump’s proposed budget which would reduce agencies’ civil rights advocacy.”

They add, “Minority protections could still garner strength through victories elsewhere, however, such as the Court’s recent decision to turn down a North Carolina case on May 15, 2017 that targeted ‘African-Americans with almost surgical precision” during voter registration according to Circuit Judge Diana Gribbon Motz.’”

They exclaim, “Michigan has had an intricate history of approved then overturned then re-approved bans on the issue of affirmative action in college admission. The decision by the Supreme Court on April 22, 2014 to overturn the Michigan Civil Rights Amendment case (Hudson vs Michigan in November of 2006) was a reversal for minorities who hoped to bring back affirmative action. Rep. John Conyers (D-Detroit), Dean of the Congressional Black Caucus and the House of Representatives, called the decision ‘counter to Constitutional equal protection.’”

They assert, “Under the Administration-supported, House-passed repeal-and-replace health plan, three million African Americans and four million Hispanics will lose coverage (currently) provided by the Affordable Care Act.”

They continue, “What Trump boasts as being a “great plan,” will cause upwards of “an estimated 51 million people under age 65 to be uninsured over the next decade, compared with 28 million who would lack insurance under current law, according to the Congressional Budget Office.”

They expand, “The 2014 Census Bureau found that ‘The number of Michigan residents with health insurance grew by a quarter million during the first year of Obamacare.’”

They reassert, “Not only has the new Administration left minorities worrying about their future health, but their safety. The Trump administration argued against Federal Judge James Bredar’s decision on April 7, 2017 on police reforms.

They go on, “Bredar disregarded General Jeff Session’s ‘review of more than a dozen federal agreements with police forces that [would] address problems of racial profiling, discrimination and use of excessive force,’ and instead, approved the Baltimore police’s plea to justify what the Obama Justice Department found as unconstitutional and discriminatory practices.”

They persist, “Many considered the conservative Roberts Court’s refusal to take the case as a victory, a step in the right direction for minorities’ voter rights. The refusal to overturn limited Republicans from “restricting access to the ballot”, according to Democratic National Committee chair Tom Perez. The Court’s decision provides hope that sometimes, but not always, the current Court could protect minority rights.”

They continue, “President Trump appointed Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach a leader of his Advisory Commission on Election Integrity committee but critics charge that the group is stacked in favor of obstacles to voting.  Kobach ‘has built a political career on xenophobia,’ according to ACLU Voting Rights Project Director Dale Ho.”

They state, “Affirmative action does not stop at college admissions, health care, and voter registration. It increases all aspects of life for minorities including education, nutrition, employment, transportation, business opportunity, economic security, and housing.”

They point out, “The Trump Administration’s budget proposals include cuts from many Section 8 programs–the Department of Labor ($2.5B), Department of Housing and Urban-Development ($6.2B) and the Community Development Block Grant Program ($3B)– where African American ‘workers make up 18 percent of the nation’s 2 million federal workers — more than any other minority group.’”

They say, “Tanya Ward Jordan, president of Coalition for Change, says ‘The Trump freeze…will undoubtedly hit the black community hard.’”

They point out, “Among 28 states that have passed their own laws regarding affirmative action includes Michigan who, in 2006, added to its Constitution Section I Article 26, ‘prohibiting preferential treatment and discrimination in state employment and contracting.’ Economists expect to see more years of growth for the state since the decision.  However, Director of University of Michigan’s Research Seminar George Fulton says, ‘It’s just not clear to us what the policy initiatives moving forward are going to be with this [Trump] administration.’”

Weiner and Hong conclude, “Affirmative action means reaching out to those disproportionately harmed and providing minorities with means to protect their legal rights and to secure their futures. Minorities can only begin to know whether they should increase their hopes once what President Trump says and does become in sync. In the courts, congress, and state and local actions, the battle will be fierce, but hopeful.”

Robert Weiner is a former spokesman for the Clinton and Bush White House, and the House Government Operations Committee. Paula Hong is a policy analyst at Robert Weiner Associates and Solutions for Change.


The International Association of Claim Professionals Holds Annual US Regional Conference

Written by admin on Jun 7th, 2017 | Filed under: Press Releases

 The International Association of Claim Professionals (IACP) hosted its Annual U.S. Regional Conference on Thursday, June 1st at the Union League Club in Midtown Manhattan.  The conference was co-chaired by Edward Quinn, President, and Catherine Kalaydjian, IACP Director Corporate Development and IACP Past President, working closely with other committee members, Marc Karnell, Chuck Kroh, Corinne Kruse, John LaCava, Frank Nicoletti, and Rich Traub.  The conference was again well attended by well over 100 participants and supported by a cast of industry leading professionals.

 

The Keynote speaker featured Dante Alighieri Disparte, Founder and CEO, Risk Cooperative, highlighting the instrumental role that our industry can provide in dealing with the evolving world of risk.  The discussion of the convergence of man-made and natural risks and how the industry can more boldly address the concept of resilience, through innovation at all levels, using analytics and creativity to deal with the known and unknowns, like pandemics such as Zika and Ebola as well as the major power outage on the Eastern seaboard, was thought provoking.   

 

The introductory speaker featured, Mark Dombroff, Partner with Dentons U.S., who riveted the audience with gripping stories and videos of several aviation disasters that he has worked on, clearly demonstrating successful strategies he has applied to reach positive resolutions for his clients; Carl Hedde, Head of Risk Accumulations, Munich Re America, brought needed focus to the impressive results of as a result of improvements in fortified construction; Tracey Haley, AVP and Director, Surety & Financial Claims at Zurich N.A., provided an insightful perspective on the tripartite nature of Surety Claims, and the associated complications in their resolution. The afternoon program led off with a timely panel discussion on the increasing frequency and volatility of Securities Class Actions, moderated by Heather Fox, General Counsel, ARC Excess and Surplus and panel members, Peter Critchell, VP, D&O Financial Lines Claims at AIG and Laurence Rosen of The Rosen Law Firm; followed by Christopher Grant McDaniel, of Deloitte Consulting and Digital Security on the power of BlockChain and Jonathan Nguyen-Duy, VP at Fortinet, who challenged the audience to recognize the constant exposures, occurring on a daily basis related to cyber-crime and importance of diligent cyber security.  


Waves Announces Technology Innovations for the Real World

Written by admin on Jun 6th, 2017 | Filed under: Press Releases
With the completion of its core functionality, Waves will now build on its powerful feature set to ensure the network is enterprise-ready and prepared for mass-market applications.

Waves was launched a year ago after its extremely successful crowdfund, and the full decentralised network has been operating for around 7 months. During that time the development team has built the core functionality of token operations, the decentralised exchange (DEX) and the first gateways, attracting numerous businesses to the platform along the way.
Now that this initial ‘bootstrapping’ of the network and ecosystem is complete, the foundations are ready for Waves to expand to become a robust platform suitable for far wider adoption, with updated core features and extensive new ones.

New milestones

A series of new features will be integrated in Waves to enable high transaction throughputs and business tools: a fast yet scalable system that can deal with the rigours of real-world commercial use.

  • Bitcoin NG-like mining. In this approach, miners generate empty ‘keyblocks’, which give them the right to generate ‘microblocks’ containing new transactions. These are pushed into the network until the next keyblock is generated. An adapted approach of this for Waves, along with larger blocks and low transaction fees, will enable thousands of transactions a minute – making the platform ideal for high-throughput applications.
  • State storage optimisation. Use of authenticated data structures will allow users to store only token data that is important to them – an important feature for addressing blockchain bloat for a custom tokens platform, which may have many thousands of assets on it. Nodes still verify all transactions for all tokens.
  • Smart contracts. Many lessons have been learned from Ethereum’s rise to prominence. Waves’ smart contracts will be non-Turing complete, a generalisation of bitcoin scripting that encompasses most of the same functionality. These smart contracts – essential for any credible blockchain platform – will run for the price of a normal transaction.
  • Anonymity and security. Multi-signature transactions will be implemented, as will anonymous transactions. These are, again, critical for real-world business applications.

‘Together, these measures will make Waves truly unique. It will be suitable for high-throughput use cases, with the business logic and security features that are fundamental to the confidence that mainstream organisations need in a blockchain platform,’ comments Waves CEO, Sasha Ivanov. ‘As a result, Waves will be better positioned for real-world applications than any other open blockchain.’

Alongside all of this, the Waves ecosystem is steadily expanding. New partner organisations are coming on board, new fiat gateways are being organised, and a compliant token crowdfunding platform, Tokenomica, is being launched. ‘Business development is taking off. Waves is the foremost blockchain platform in Eastern Europe, and we are gaining a lot of interest from all walks of life. We are very excited about the future of Waves, and of blockchain technology in general.’

In addition to the Forum co-founders, several other highly acclaimed educators and mentors will be present to share their knowledge.  Brittany O’Donnell is a math teacher who holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and a certification in Students with Disabilities, amongst many other achievements.  She will be sharing insight which comes first hand from her experience working with youth.  Millennial Mindset coach, Marcel Petitpas, recognizes the millions of people throughout the world who are unfulfilled in the workplace and never end up reaching their potential.  He will be speaking on how he works to change this through letting go of fear and focusing on individual purpose.  Wendy Lamparelli, an experienced nurse and important member of the Hacksenback School District, has been a key piece in development in the area.  She implemented a Code Blue Plan which saved at least four lives in the Hacksenabck District alone.  She is extremely passionate about health and wellness for children and believes strongly that they must thrive to learn. Melanie Alston-Balaputra, Vice Principle of Barrington High School, will also be speaking at the event offering experience, insight and guidance youth and youth culture.

From 0 to 10,000: crossMarket Online Network Growing!

Written by admin on Jun 2nd, 2017 | Filed under: Press Releases

Karlsbad, June 02, 2017: In late 2015, Across Systems went online with its crossMarket network for the translation and localization industry. Since then, the number of members has grown continually, surpassing the mark of 10,000 in May.

In view of the poor transparency and lack of structure of the translation market in general, the search for suitable translation partners or – from the opposite perspective – the search for customers with interesting translation projects often represents a major challenge. crossMarket has been developed for the purpose of facilitating the search for translators, language service providers, and industrial enterprises for joint projects.

“By means of informative profiles, our online network assists customers in gaining a quick overview of the competencies of translators and LSPs. The membership figures confirm our claim that a more systematic search for a translation partner increases the probability of finding a suitable partner for a particular project”, says Tanja Wendling, Head of Marketing at Across Systems.

With its professional user profiles, crossMarket offers attractive marketing opportunities for language experts. In the industry, the network has already attracted a lot of attention, which Across Systems continues to promote with systematic communication measures.
From June 1, 2017, Across will celebrate the 10,000-member mark with a 10-day discount campaign. For more information, go to www.crossmarket.net.
