Three Harvard faculty members, whose research ranges from the spatial organization of ultra-cold atoms to the effect of racial differences in America to the psychology of suicide and self-injury, are among the recipients of this year’s MacArthur Foundation fellowships.Roland Fryer Jr., Robert M. Beren Professor of Economics; Markus Greiner, associate professor of physics; and Matthew K. Nock, professor of psychology, will receive the prestigious “genius” grants, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation announced today.The three are among 22 recipients from a variety of fields to be recognized by the foundation for their originality and dedication to their chosen fields. The annual awards are no-strings-attached grants of $500,000, which recipients may use to pursue their own creative, intellectual, and professional inclinations. Recipients are nominated anonymously, and don’t know they are under consideration until they are notified by the foundation that they have won.“This has been a year of great change and extraordinary challenge, and we are once again reminded of the potential individuals have to make a difference in the world and shape our future,” said Robert Gallucci, president of the MacArthur Foundation. “The MacArthur Fellows exemplify how individual creativity and talent can spark new insights and ideas in every imaginable field of human endeavor.”For Fryer, that field is illuminating the causes and consequences of economic disparity due to race and inequality in American society, particularly when it comes to education.Most recently, Fryer led an experiment to examine whether financial incentives work as a method of boosting student achievement. In a study that examined 20,000-plus students at more than 200 schools in three cities, the results found that incentives alone have no significant impact on state test scores.Though he has yet to decide how he will use the grant funds, Fryer hopes to develop a scalable solution to a problem he calls the “civil rights issue of the 21st century” — closing the racial achievement gap.“I’m still in a bit of shock,” said Fryer, of being named a MacArthur Fellow. “The feeling that is most prominent at this point is one of gratitude — to the foundation for the fellowship, to my colleagues, and to the University for doing what it can to provide an environment for faculty where ideas are our only constraints.”Greiner learned of his award two weeks ago, while visiting friends in Munich, but initially believed he’d been contacted by the foundation seeking information about another nominee.“They called to tell me they needed information regarding a MacArthur Fellow, and had some questions regarding their CV and background, but then told me they were talking about me,” Greiner said. “It was a wonderful surprise.”Greiner’s work focuses on using lasers and magnetic fields to cool atoms to ultra-low temperatures — near absolute zero — then trap them in lattices created using lasers. Once trapped, the atoms behave similarly to electrons, enabling the investigation of quantum phenomena like superconductivity under conditions that can be more easily controlled.For Nock, who studies suicide and self-injury in adolescents and adults, the grant offers the chance to seed programs that not only advance our understanding of suicide, but our ability to predict and prevent it, he said.As a researcher, Nock has made significant breakthroughs in understanding why people harm themselves. Using a multidisciplinary approach that combines epidemiology, laboratory experiments, mental associations, and real-world biological and psychological assessment, he has documented the mental state of people considering or recently engaging in self-injury. His work has uncovered a psychological marker — the extent to which a person associates his or her self-concept with death — and the strength of that association, which can be used to predict suicide attempts with greater accuracy than before.Despite being named a “genius” by the MacArthur Foundation, Nock said the credit for his work should be shared with his many collaborators.“The MacArthur Fellows Program recognizes individuals, but our research is very collaborative in nature, and I am only one very small part of the outstanding team of researchers that contributed to the work recognized by this award,” he said.

Is Roanoke the Second City of East Coast mountain towns? Maybe.Does Roanoke care? Probably not.Sure, being called the Chicago of outdoor towns might be considered some serious southern shade, but for residents of the Star City, it’s darn-near a compliment.Like Wrangler jeans, Roanoke offers a solid itinerary of outdoor goodness, without the coolness tax, which can sting visitors to a town further south.Photo: Main Street Hub / Karin SmithThe new popularity of the Star City of the South (as Roanoke is called because of its iconic mountain ornament), inspired Diane Hailey to open the city’s 4th true bed & breakfast establishment. In Summer 2018, she cut the Grand Opening ribbon on her own inn to welcome tourists and guests to her adopted hometown. “I really strived to create the best Roanoke lodging option for outdoor adventure travelers,” says Hailey. Born in Waynesboro, Hailey is no stranger to the Appalachian Trail and Blue Ridge Parkway. “I’ve lived almost my entire life within 30 minutes of either the AT or the Parkway,” she says. “The Blue Ridge Mountains are my family,” she continues.Photo: Main Street Hub / Karin SmithFerrum College brought her to the southern point of the Shenandoah Valley, and she never returned to Augusta County. Instead, life brought her to Roanoke and she quickly jumped in to help Roanoke’s Historic Old Southwest neighborhood wash its face. In 2012, she bought her first neglected home in Old Southwest. “Compared to Charlottesville or Asheville, I purchased the Downtown Duplex for a song. I spent two years learning how to do a lot of the work myself and turned the duplex back into a beautiful single family home, “ Hailey explains. Hailey is quick to admit that she is a rehabilitator and not a preservationist. “I put my own stamp on my projects,” she explains. “My goal with a house is not to take it back to its original state, but to create a unique space for modern and energy-efficient living,” she explains.Photo: Main Street Hub / Karin SmithFor Roanoke Boutique Hotel, Hailey purchased a 3,500 sq. ft home in the same historic neighborhood, and even closer to Downtown. “The house was in horrible condition and had been boarded up and ignored for five years,” says Hailey. Once she took ownership, she gutted the c.a. 1890 structure to its studs and structural brick. After 3 months of careful demolition to expose the brick and rustic charm, the home was redesigned with hikers and mountain bikers in mind. Complete with king size beds, outdoor showering facilities, locked indoor bike storage, wide walkways, and a huge kitchen, Roanoke Boutique Hotel is an oasis for outdoor enthusiasts anxious to find lodging that doesn’t turn away the tired, sore and dirty. “I’m an avid hiker and an Appalachian Trail maintainer (Hailey co-maintains a 6-mile section on Sinking Creek Mountain in Craig County); therefore, I’m well aware of how dirty hikers can get, so I created an inn that embraces dirty gear,” she explains.Photo: Main Street Hub / Karin SmithWith easy access to the AT, Blue Ridge Parkway and Carvin’s Cove mountain biking, Roanoke has a lot to offer outdoor enthusiasts who are looking for value vs. brand name. And the innkeeper at Roanoke Boutique Hotel is more than willing to help plan a guest’s outdoor adventures. “My favorite part of running the inn is helping guests pick their hikes and plan their adventures,” says Hailey. “I make sure visitors maximize their days while they’re in town, and not waste time looking for the best fit for restaurants, breweries, and trails.” “Not everyone can hike the Triple Crown, so I size up their abilities and put them on a trail that won’t ruin their trip.” “If you hike a strenuous trail the first day and have to lay in bed for 3 days after to recuperate, you’ve taken away from the whole experience. I make sure the hike matches the hiker. “Photo: Main Street Hub / Karin SmithAnd Hailey is no stranger to strenuous hikes. In 2016, she and a friend completed the Triple Crown in one day. When a Roanoke Times reporter posted photos of the epic hike while the women were still on trail, the story quickly went viral and the two had a following of several hundred hikers before they made it from Dragon’s Tooth to Tinker Cliffs. The story quickly became one of the most-clicked photo galleries of that year, and remains a vivid memory for Hailey.“I knew that day I wanted to make a living helping people get outdoors.”
5SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Dave Adams Dave Adams is President / Chief Executive Officer of CU Solutions Group. The CUSG office is located in Livonia, Michigan.Mr. Adams joined the Michigan Credit Union League in August of … Web: www.CUSolutionsGroup.com Details Soon, the holidays will have come and gone, and we will be left with a new year full of resolutions and fresh goals to achieve. As leaders, regardless of position or number of employees, we should ask the question of ourselves, “How can I live better and lead more effectively in the new year?”I’m a big fan of author Stephen Covey’s concepts of personal leadership and the “7 Habits of Highly Effective People.” When I first heard him speak, I was struck by the power and simplicity of his words and how they rang true especially with leaders who felt inadequate both in their personal and professional lives. The appeal of his message was in the wisdom of principle-based leadership that seemed to resonate with just about everyone. I loved the way that Covey’s seven habits were separated into two sections, three for individual, “get yourself together” habits and three for interpersonal behavior or “team” habits and then the seventh being just the self-improvement habit he called, “sharpen the saw.” The book has sold 25 million copies in 40 languages worldwide and remains one of the best-selling nonfiction business books in history. U.S. President Bill Clinton invited Covey to Camp David to counsel him on how to integrate the book into his presidency.Of course, the seven habits in the Covey framework are all so much easier said than done. At Michigan Credit Union League and CU Solutions Group, we give all of our new employees the 7 Habits book as a sort of personal leadership and personal happiness bible. And we structure mid-year and year-end recognitions around these concepts.I’m proud and honored at the holiday season to give our employees a $100 pay it forward gift card. It’s amazing to see how they take a small gesture and multiply it – to make an impact on so many lives. This year, six of our staff took their gift cards and, along with a special Christmas card, and delivered them on a chilly Sunday evening to the home of 5-year-old Lily Bowen, a little girl diagnosed witha type of nerve cancer called neuroblastoma. After a well-child visit, the family received the devastating cancer diagnosis that gives her a 50% chance of survival and requires a 5-day chemo treatment every 21 days. Our caring staff paid forward their holiday gift cards and surely made an impact that night by showing love and support to Lilly and her family.During this same weekend, our credit union community heard of the sad and untimely passing of Adam Kearns, VP of Business Development with the Ohio Credit Union League. Adam was an incredible young man with a big heart and passion for doing good. He left behind a loving wife Katie and two adorable young children. His death, just one week before Christmas reminds us all of the importance of holding our loved ones close and the need to make an impact every day of our lives.These are just two stark reminders of how we should all have a sense of urgency for doing good and showing love and compassion within our sphere of influence.Covey taught that people want to find happiness and betterment in the way that they live, love, learn and leave a legacy. What a great framework for understanding what drives our happiness and success! As a New Year approaches, for me as a leader, I find myself introspective about how I need to improve in these areas and strengthen my seven habits. A few weeks ago, I was so moved by the eulogies given at the funeral service for President George H.W. Bush. Watching his son, George W. Bush, a former president himself, well up with emotion as he honored his dad with the spoken word was so moving and poignant as four other presidents listened on the front row. President Bush referenced his father’s inaugural address and challenged all of us to lead in kinder, gentler ways espoused by these words:“My friends, we are not the sum of our possessions. They are not the measure of our lives. In our hearts we know what matters. We cannot hope only to leave our children a bigger car, a bigger bank account. We must hope to give them a sense of what it means to be a loyal friend; a loving parent; a citizen who leaves his home, his neighborhood and town better than he found it. And what do we want the men and women who work with us to say when we’re no longer there: That we were more driven to succeed than anyone around us? Or that we stopped to ask if a sick child had gotten better and stayed a moment there to trade a word of friendship?”I believe that managing our perspective every day is the secret to happiness and leadership success. There will always be reasons to be hard on ourselves or to feel inadequate. And we will always be flawed. But finding joy in life despite our shortcomings and negative experiences comes from altering our perspective to a more positive, humble and service-oriented tone, just as President Bush so eloquently encouraged.This great credit union movement gives leaders at all levels the opportunity to make an impact on peoples’ lives by working together with the “people helping people” philosophy that is the hallmark of credit unions.So, my four big new year’s resolutions for how I live, love, learn and leave a legacy are these:1. Live Better: I want to live with a greater sense of urgency for making a difference in the lives of my family, friends, work colleagues and even the occasional stranger whose life I can impact.2. Love Better: I need to repair damaged family relationships by being the one to reach out. I also don’t want to take for granted my family and loved ones. I can show them and express to them my love in words and actions. And I can love my colleagues and staff by listening and leading with greater compassion and respect.3. Learn Better: I need to be entertained more by reading and watching non-fiction vs. fiction. I need to be more open to learning from my partner, my family, employees and colleagues in exercising the humility to realize that I’m not supposed to be the one with all the answers. Listening and learning from those closest to me will make me a better person and a better leader.4. Leave the Right Legacy: I want to double down on doing the right thing rather than the politically expedient thing in my work and with my family. In my work life, principle-based leadership, better listening, improved collaboration, and belief in the team will be my focus. In my personal life, I want to treat my partner and children more like friends and never as projects. Seeking first to understand, then to be understood is the habit I most need to foster and improve.As leaders, we always need to remember that there is a long line of people who could do our jobs as well as, or better than we do them. Leadership is a stewardship and a privilege that we should never take for granted.Good luck with your important new year’s resolutions for improving the way you live, love, learn and leave a legacy. I’m looking forward to working toward mine.Happy holidays and a happy new year!
As a credit union leader, you may be asking yourself, Can I afford to implement artificial intelligence (AI) applications now? Is it a must-have? Is it going to have a measurable impact on my business? You’re not alone. Many CEOs are trying to determine its value before leveraging AI.The top reasons companies today are using AI are for speed, efficiency, lower costs, and to make better decisions – in short all of the things you need to be competitive in the modern financial services market. How competitive you are will determine whether you retain your member relationships or lose them to newer, faster, sexier models, like fintechs. AI offers a great opportunity to get deeper product penetration by correctly matching products with member needs and so much more.If you consider members’ behaviors online, they are logging this information for us. They’re on social media and they are connected with friends, family, and former schoolmates, buying products and gaming. They use online calendars for their scheduling and track where they are via Fitbit. Whether members like it or not, how they interact with the world is being captured, cataloged, measured, and analyzed every day by marketing and technology companies, governments, financial institutions and AIs. In fact, Google is training its AI with full access to everything Google captures. It’s scary and mind boggling. 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading »

ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr The first cryptocurrency created by a major U.S. bank is here — and it’s from J.P. Morgan Chase.The lender moves more than $6 trillion around the world every day for corporations in its massive wholesale payments business. In trials set to start in a few months, a tiny fraction of that will happen over something called “JPM Coin,” the digital token created by engineers at the New York-based bank to instantly settle payments between clients.J.P. Morgan is preparing for a future in which parts of the essential underpinning of global capitalism, from cross-border payments to corporate debt issuance, move to the blockchain. That’s the database technology made famous by its first application, bitcoin. But in order for that future to happen, the bank needed a way to transfer money at the dizzying speed that those smart contracts closed, rather than relying on old technology like wire transfers.“So anything that currently exists in the world, as that moves onto the blockchain, this would be the payment leg for that transaction,” said Umar Farooq, head of J.P. Morgan’s blockchain projects. “The applications are frankly quite endless; anything where you have a distributed ledger which involves corporations or institutions can use this.” continue reading »
The Croatian National Tourist Board is participating in the largest annual meeting of the North American Tour Operators Association “2018 USTOA Annual Conference & Marketplace”, which is being held in its 40th edition this year in Phoenix from November 27 to 30. In addition to the Croatian National Tourist Board, the Tourist Board of the City of Zagreb, the Tourist Board of the Dubrovnik-Neretva County and the Tourist Board of the City of Dubrovnik are also participating in this important gathering. Croatia is one of the fastest growing destinations on the American market, said the director of the CNTB Head Office, Kristjan Staničić, and added: “It is a very important and important gathering which, in addition to North American tour operators, ie active members of the USTOA, also attracts many other associate members and representatives of tourist offices and the tourism industry of countries from around the world. This was also an opportunity to meet key partners such as TravelZoo, Collette, Holiday Vacations, Cox and Kings, The Travel Corporation and Stride Travel. “, said director Staničić, PWC / Off the Beaten Track TOP 5 The excellent status of our country in the large American market is confirmed by the results of market research by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), whose representatives were one of the speakers at the forum. According to the research, Croatia is included in the top five “Off the Beaten Track” destinations, right after Iceland and Cambodia, and before Colombia and Vietnam.CNTB: We expect growth from US trafficThe CNTB expects the continuation of double-digit growth in traffic from the USA in 2019, in which the new direct flight of American Airlines on the route Philadelphia-Dubrovnik will significantly contribute. According to the eVisitor system, 578 thousand arrivals and 1.6 million overnight stays were made from the US market so far this year, which is an increase of 23 percent in arrivals and 18 percent in overnight stays compared to the same period last year. Top destinations for American tourists by overnight stays are Dubrovnik, Split, Zagreb, Hvar and Rovinj.

France has decided to refuse the proposal of Italian shipbuilder and ship designer Fincantieri to acquire the majority stake in STX France shipyard. By using its right of preemption, France will control 100% of STX France in the next few months.The decision will give the country time for better negotiation and agreement, Bruno Le Maire, French Minister of Economy and Finance, tweeted on July 27.However, the nationalization of the shipyard is temporary as the country does not intend to remain the sole shareholder, STX France said in a statement. France would set up in the long term a round table aimed at forming STX France’s new shareholder structure.The country will continue to negotiate with Italian partners in the coming days, Le Maire added.Specifically, France plans to offer Italy to expand shipbuilding cooperation into naval ships, Reuters reported citing Le Maire as saying.World Maritime News Staff
