One way credit unions can do this is to partner with small businesses and employees of small businesses to offer account origination and lending options. By adding individual members and business accounts from small businesses, credit unions can facilitate community engagement and support local economies.According to the US Small Business Administration (SBA), approximately 30.2M small businesses employ 48.9 million people. In 2016, the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council valued small business loans less than $100,000 at $82.6B. With the number of banks decreasing steadily, the opportunity for credit unions to work with the small business market is ripe for the taking.Recognizing the unique opportunity small business presents to credit unions, the NCUA issued a memorandum of understanding with the SBA to provide credit unions with the resources to better understand and serve the small business market. This partnership includes the SBA guaranty program, with more than 200 credit unions participating.The sheer number of small businesses and their employees paired with increased lending market demand, and an SBA/NCUA partnership, there is no reason not institute a small business trade, industry, or profession (TIP) charter designation.

Gunmen attack School in Kenya Pope Francis on Thursday appealed to Somali Islamist militants who killed 148 people at a Kenyan university this month to stop their brutality and “come to their senses”.He told Kenyan bishops visiting the Vatican that he prayed for those killed by acts of terror, ethnic and tribal hostilities in Kenya and elsewhere in Africa.“I think most especially of the men and women killed at Garissa University College,” the leader of the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics said.“May those who commit such brutality come to their senses and seek mercy.”The gunmen hunted down Christians while sparing Muslims in the attack on April 2. Francis has repeatedly expressed alarm about Christians being targeted for their faith and condemned the beheading of 21 Egyptian Copts in Libya in February.He urged the visiting bishops to work with Christian and non-Christian leaders to promote peace in predominantly-Christian Kenya.Al Shabaab said Garissa was revenge for Kenya sending troops into Somalia to fight alongside African Union peacekeepers against the Islamist group.–REUTERSRelated Gunmen attack Kenya University compound Police launch manhunt for Kenya University attackers

Comments In its first test of the season, Syracuse is expecting Villanova to turn to its bag of tricks.It’s a trend SU picked up on from watching the Wildcats’film against Boston College last year, and Villanova’s trickery is not something the Orange gets a glimpse of too often.“The Boston College game — they did a lot more formations, a lot more fast tempo, a lot more everything than the rest of their games,”SU defensive coordinator Chuck Bullough said of Syracuse’s Football Championship Subdivision opponent. “Do they consider us like BC or do they consider us like they did the rest of the second half of their season?“We think —we don’t know —that they’re probably going to come out and do some of that stuff.”From the get-go, the Orange may very likely face a curveball as it looks to get started on the right foot in its 2014 campaign. The Wildcats, based on SU’s findings in the film room, utilize a multitude of unbalanced formations — including unorthodox alignments of their offensive linemen —and deceptive play-calling.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textYet the Orange has been up against this strategy once in the recent past. North Carolina State used an identical formation last year, SU linebacker Cameron Lynch said, so Syracuse may not have much of a reason to worry when it hosts Villanova in the Carrier Dome for the season opener on Friday at 7:30 p.m.“Excellent FCS opponent — probably the best FCS opponent to come in here in a long time,”Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer said.The Orange may only defend 10–15 plays with unbalanced formations by the end of the year, Shafer said. SU expects Villanova to be the first to start the trend.In some of the Wildcats’formations they line up a tackle on the opposite side and place the tight end right next to a guard.Villanova’s offense also has a tendency, Shafer said, of running zone reads that react off a defensive tackle rather than a defensive end. As opposed to letting a more athletic end into the backfield, the Wildcats often free up a bigger, usually slower, lineman and the Wildcats’quarterback will react to him instead.The Wildcats then whip out the jet sweeps and fake jet sweeps, reverses and fake reverses, guard pulls and whatever else they think might throw their opponent off. Add a fast tempo to the mix, and Shafer said it can be taxing to a defense.“The big thing is if we get something that’s whacky that we’ve never seen before, we try to cover it down and play sound defense,”Shafer said. “If they get one on us, we’ve got to brush it off and go to the next play.”The Orange has had all of training camp to prepare for Villanova, a timeframe Bullough called a “blessing”compared to only having a mid-season week to strategize for such schemes.Last October, N.C. State used the same unbalanced formation against the Orange, Lynch said, but SU was prepared for it, giving the setup little bearing on the outcome of the game. Syracuse held NCSU to 10 points and 129 yards on the ground.Villanova’s attempt to sneak past Boston College with trickery and a quick tempo in its season opener last year didn’t pan out either. The Wildcats led 14-7 at halftime before losing 24-14. Still, Lynch knows from experience not to take Division I-AA programs lightly, after needing a second-half bounce-back to defeat Stony Brook at home in 2012.But he’s just looking forward to finally hitting somebody not in Orange.“We’ll be on our P’s and Q’s, do our assignments,”Lynch said. “We’ll watch our pull keys and don’t worry about the window dressing that they have going on.“It’s going to be a good one and I can’t wait.”Related contentDaily Orange beat writers Jesse Dougherty and Jacob Klinger preview the Villanova-Syracuse opener in the first ‘On the beat’ of the season.

The Minister of Youth and Sports Isaac Asiamah has directed the National Sports Authority (NSA), to desist from forcing sports associations/federations to appoint representatives of the NSA on the various associations as their General Secretaries, Joy Sports can reveal.In a meeting with the Ghana Olympic Committee (GOC) hierarchy, the NSA, Ghana Athletics Association (GAA) and other many other association heads on Wednesday evening, Mr Asiamah told the NSA their members should be decoupled from the umbrella body of associations in the country. This move was necessitated following appeals from the Olympics Committee headed by Ben Nunoo Mensah to the Minister to have the sporting bodies decide on what is best for their administration, Joy Sports sources revealed.On December 20, 2019, Director General of the NSA, Professor Peter Twumasi said it was illegitimate for executives of federations to ‘remove officers of the Authority who have been assigned as Secretary Generals.’Prof Twumasi in the letter noted that various federations/associations are enjoined to follow the dictates of the NSA and as such, they have the power to regulate their operations.Mr Asiamah in response to the letter at the meeting said it is not mandatory for staff of the NSA to serve as Secretary Generals of associations as it is a violation of their constitutions and best international practice and ordered that the letter to the federations be withdrawn. He also asked the NSA to discontinue their investigations of Secretary General of the GAA, Bawah Fuseini, who was scheduled to make a second appearance before the NSA inquest team next week Tuesday. Asiamah noted that Fuseini was only performing his constitutional duties. The Member of Parliament of Atwima Mponua constituency advised the NSA to devise strategies of working cordially with associations, rather than forcing them to kowtow to their whims and caprices.The Minister also ordered that the NSA write to the GAA to sanction the upcoming cross country athletics championship scheduled for February 22, 2020. According to him, the GAA is the mother body of athletics in the country and every athletics event in the country should be approved by them.—
