The royal couple appeared in the audience on the “Britain’s Got Talent” finale as host Declan Donnelly introduced Curry as “someone you two know very well.”“Hello ‘Britain’s Got Talent,’” Curry said in his 25-second video message. “It’s a joy to bring you these greetings. To all of the contestants, to the judges, to the audience and to all who make this possible, thank you. Thank you for what you’re doing. Thank you to the contestants who offer yourselves and share your talents and your gifts with the rest of us. You actually bring some joy and happiness. So thank you. God bless you, God keep you and may God hold us all in those almighty hands of love.”Donnelly couldn’t help getting in a wisecrack alluding to the length of Curry’s 14-minute royal wedding sermon.“That’s quite a short one by his standards, wasn’t it.

FFIEC updates pandemic planning guide

first_img continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr A little while ago, NAFCU blogged about the NCUA’s business continuity planning guidance and the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council’s (FFIEC’s) 2007 Pandemic Planning Guidance. In light of the spread of Covid-19 a.k.a. the coronavirus, the FFIEC updated its Interagency Statement on Pandemic Planning (the guide), identifying “actions that financial institutions should take to minimize the potential adverse effects of a pandemic.” In a related press release, the federal financial institution regulators encouraged financial institutions, including credit unions to continue meeting the financial needs of members affected by coronavirus.The guide begins with a discussion of the unique challenges presented by a pandemic in comparison to other disasters. The guide then explains how to incorporate pandemic risk into a credit union’s business continuity management, including the business impact analysis, the risk assessment, and risk monitoring and testing. Let’s briefly touch on each phase:The Unique Challenges of a PandemicIn order to effectively serve members, it is important to tailor a credit union’s traditional business continuity plan (BCP) to address the unique challenges posed by a pandemic.

De Guzman given penalty job

first_img Swansea return to league business with Laudrup adamant their strong campaign must not finish with a damp squib. The Swans have compiled 37 points from 27 games, just three short of Laudrup’s initial target of 40 points. But the Dane does not want a repeat of last season, where the Welsh side tailed off badly after getting to 39 points, winning just two of their final nine games. He said: “If you look at some of the sides we have to play, they all have something to play for. Newcastle are not 100 per cent safe, neither are Norwich. West Brom are still playing for a place in Europe while Arsenal and Tottenham are going for the Champions League. “We cannot stop being competitive because if we do we will lose all the games. “It is part of being more mature; I am not saying we have to win six or seven of these games but we must keep being competitive. “Look at last year when the team reached 39 points after some very good weeks, then suddenly lost five of the last nine, so we cannot stop competing, we have to go on.” The only low point in last weekend’s emphatic 5-0 Capital One Cup final victory over Bradford was the unseemly row between Nathan Dyer and Jonathan de Guzman over who would take Swansea’s spot-kick, after Matt Duke had been sent off for bringing down the Dutch international. But Laudrup has confirmed De Guzman is now Swansea’s designated penalty taker, and said: “It was was very unusual as we had not had a penalty before, but maybe we will now have a penalty on Saturday. As for who will take it – you never change a winner so if Jonathan de Guzman is on the pitch he will have it.” Manager Michael Laudrup has moved to make sure there will be no penalty ructions when Swansea face Newcastle on Saturday.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Pelicans’ Julius Randle expected to decline player option, report says

first_imgIt appears like Julius Randle will test free agency.The Pelicans big man is expected to decline his $9 million player option this offseason, according to a report from The Athletic, which cites unidentified league sources. They are also expected to select Duke star Zion Williamson with the No. 1 pick on June 20.Williamson has drawn comparisons to Randle, who is taller by two inches at 6-9 but is also more than 30 lbs lighter. It’s unclear how New Orleans will proceed, as it will have two undersized, athletic, left-handed forwards on the roster if they keep both.Nevertheless, New Orleans has plenty of options.

Domingo German says he isn’t retiring from baseball, apologizes to Yankees for cryptic post

first_imgGerman, 27, still needs to serve the final 63 games of his 81-game suspension, which stems from an alleged domestic violence incident last September involving his then-girlfriend.He had been one of New York’s best young pitchers before his violation of league rules, earning a team-high 18 wins to go with a 4.03 ERA last year. But missing a year and a half due to the combination of his suspension and the COVID-19 pandemic could bump him from the Yankees’ long-term rotation plans. He can become a free agent after the 2023 season. Suspended Yankees right-hander Domingo German has walked back a cryptic post to his Instagram account Friday night that suggested he would retire.German raised confusion when he wrote: “If I decide not to come back, I will be very proud of my 11-year professional career. God bless everyone who has supported me.” Manager Aaron Boone said he was unsure what German meant and confused by the situation. In an Instagram post Saturday afternoon, German clarified he did not intend to step away from baseball and apologized for insinuating otherwise. He is suspended under MLB’s domestic violence policy and will not return in the abridged 2020 campaign.”To my teammates, the Yankees organization, and our fans, I am very sorry for the unsettling post last night,” German wrote. “This past year has been very tough for my family and myself, for which I take full responsibility.”Not being with my teammates while they get ready for the season, knowing I have let them down, has taken a toll on me and last night I let my emotions get the best of me.”Domingo German’s retirement lasted approximately 22 hours, according to his Instagram. pic.twitter.com/1CrAqfQr89— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) July 18, 2020MORE: Blue Jays must scramble after Canada bans MLB gameslast_img read more
