Decanal wisdom

first_imgIt is not an enviable task to keep order in an Oxford college. Accordingly, persons of a decanal persuasion must be accorded great respect given the leniency and understanding with which most go about their jobs. With reports over the last few weeks of various social gatherings being banned first at St John’s and now at St Anne’s, one is led to wonder why college authorities don’t take the bull by the horns and ban fun altogether. While seemingly radical, this would at least provoke an atmosphere of subversiveness. Besides, it would make Merton students feel less left out.  ARCHIVE: 5th week MT 2005last_img read more

Quartetto di Cremona at the Holywell Music Room, 10th February 2008

first_imgFour men, three unshaven, enter the room wearing dark suits: certainly not looking like the kind of people you’d like to meet down one of Oxford’s alleys on a dark night. They are, however, the members of the Cremona string quartet, who performed at the Holywell Music Room last Sunday. The quartet’s music was fascinating to listen to, and their aura very much added to the experience. Should they come and play in Oxford again, they are a must-see for any chamber music listener. The quartet’s intimidating aura was continued by the aggressive opening to Bartok’s string quartet number four, with the slipping of the cello spike at the end of the second movement adding to the drama of the piece. The interesting techniques used by Bartok (such as hitting the string with the wood of the bow) were carried off well by the quartet, and the humorous fourth movement (which is almost entirely pizzicato) induced quiet smiles from the audience at the end. Click here to listen to the Quartetto di Cremona performing Haydn op.76 n.4 Sunrise Menuet. Following the Bartok, the Italian quartet played one of Beethoven’s opus 59 ‘Razumovsky’ quartets: the vigorous ending of the first movement was particularly impressive technically. The very emotional second movement led into a gracious-sounding minuet: whilst this provided a release of tension after the previous movement, it was perhaps a little uninteresting serving more as a bridge between movements.center_img by Robin Thompson, Cherwell24 Music Editor The next coffee concert at the Holywell music room is next Sunday, February 17th, at 11.15am, and will feature cellist Gemma Rosefield playing sonatas by Beethoven and Chopin (tickets available from Tickets Oxford 01865 305305). Whilst perhaps not to everyone’s taste, I believe that the macho nature of the quartet’s playing was well suited to these Beethoven and Bartok quartets. It was interesting to hear the quartet play the cavatina from Beethoven’s string quartet opus 130 as an encore and its passion contrasted greatly with some of their earlier playing.last_img read more

Top 6 credit union technologies that I am thankful for as a member

first_img 30SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Kirk Drake Kirk Drake is founder and CEO of Ongoing Operations, LLC, a rapidly growing CUSO that provides complete business continuity and technology solutions. With its recent acquisition of Cloudworks, Ongoing Operations … Web: www.ongoingoperations.com Details As a late Gen Xer/Early Millennial – I grew up with technology.  I remember distinctly in the 5th grade when the mouse was introduced and our computer lab moved to Macs from Tandys.   I started working in credit union technology on an old EDS World system at 18 as a teller and spent the next 10 years of my career implementing an explosion of technology in credit unions.  As I thought about things I was thankful for – I thought about all of the innovations, software, systems and processes I have implemented and experienced as a member.  Here is my list of technology that I truly appreciate as a credit union member.Remote Deposit Capture in Mobile BankingThis is my all-time favorite.   It is sad that this gets me excited but I really love being able to deposit a check without ever leaving my kitchen.  Just take a quick picture of the front and back, enter the amount and you are done.   I have a corporate account I administer for a networking group and I don’t have RDC with that bank.  It is brutal.  It takes me 4 to 6 weeks to coordinate my schedule and make it to a branch.Automatic Loan DecisioningI am extremely impatient.  Not a little.  A LOT.  Automatic loan decisioning for everything pretty much but a mortgage is what I expect.   Take any longer and I go research and find something else that is faster and more efficient.  Sorry, I won’t wait for a day for a slightly better rate.   Thankfully, my credit union has this and is very efficient with loan processing.E*SignaturesMy credit union supports e*signatures for everything.  This is great – the documents get sent to me and I can complete everything from my phone.  A while back I was cleaning up my files and stumbled across my first car loan from Agriculture FCU.  It was the well worn carbon copy and physical signature. I really -really appreciate – A) not having to sign a physical copy B) not having to store a physical copy.   Thank you Credit Unions who have E*Signatures.7-11 Kiosks connected to Shared Branching If you haven’t used one go try it.  They are Awesome!  Thank you Sarah Bang!   Like many credit union members I don’t live near the credit unions I bank with and can rarely make it into a branch.  Every time there is a transaction that I can’t do through mobile banking, online banking or a call center, the 7-11 Kiosk works.  Everytime.   I have used it on the road to deposit large checks and check multiple credit union account balances.Online Banking & Bill PayI can’t imagine a bank or credit union without these.  My father used to use a phone coupler modem with his laptop in the 80’s and dialed into a Bank.  He downloaded his account data and printed it out on a dot matrix printer.    Thank goodness my first credit union account had online banking.  From my dorm room I could check my balances and avoid bouncing checks as a freshmen in college.  Even though I know how to balance a check book – I haven’t had to since I was a kid.PFM or MintUnfortunately my credit union doesn’t have a great PFM tool.  However, I can use Mint.  It is fantastic for being able to manage my budget, see all of my credit union & brokerage accounts, and manage my full financial picture.   Thank you for PFM software and account aggregation.Thank you credit unions for working hard on my behalf as a member to implement technology, be efficient and provide great rates.  I can’t wait to see the future with digital wallets and for credit unions to use more and more data analytics to improve the member experience and service offerings.last_img read more
