PODCAST: Are fintechs friends or foes?

first_img continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr As fintechs continue to increase their presence in the financial services industry, credit unions must decide to either form partnerships with these potential disruptors or compete against them.The first step in making this decision is to identify your niche—what you’re good at—and determining where to go from there, says Jeremy Pinard, vice president of consumer lending at $10.6 billion asset Alliant Credit Union in Chicago.“Credit unions have to get comfortable finding that niche and understanding they can’t be everything to all members,” Pinard tells the CUNA News Podcast.Discovering that niche might mean changing the products and services your credit union offers, partnering with a fintech company that excels in that area, or opting not to offer that product or service.last_img read more

Food & DiningInternationalLifestylePrint Artist who cooked, served own genitals faces jail time by: – November 30, 2012 Tweetcenter_img Mao Sugiyama shows off the spread that will eventually include cooked genitaliaAn artist from Tokyo who cooked and served his genitals to a paying group of cannibalistic diners could now face two years in prison. Mao Sugiyama, of Tokyo, has been charged with indecent exposure more than two months after the headline-grabbing meal, which five patrons shelled out $250 to consume, according to News On Japan.WARNING: Graphic descriptions below.The 23-year-old self-described “asexual” and three other people who helped organize the event face charges, according to the Metropolitan Police Department.Before turning 22, Sugiyama underwent elective genital-removal surgery. The severed penis, testicles, and scrotal skin were divided up and garnished with button mushrooms and Italian parsley.An MPD spokeswoman told AFP that the four suspects conspired to “openly display the severed male genitals to the assembled 71 guests” at a music club on May 13.Sugiyama made sure to follow all laws, including a ban on organ sales, processing of medical waste and food sanitation requirements, according to comments cited by AFP from the artist.Sugiyama also said the dinner was designed to raise awareness about “sexual minorities, x-gender, asexual people.”The Japan Daily Press reports that, if convicted of indecent exposure, Sugiyama could face up to two years in jail and a fine of roughly $32,000.Indecent exposure in Japan is described as displaying obscene objects, according to the Japan Daily Press. The paper seems to hint that the charge is a bit absurd considering people attending the event likely knew what they were in for.WARNING: GRAPHIC PHOTO OF THE MEALThe penis, scrotum and testicle…Braised, garnished and served for $250.Huffington Post Share Sharelast_img read more
