Nussle, along with CUNA Chief Advocacy Officer Ryan Donovan, spoke to Bloomberg about the need for federal data protection legislation and other topics.Nussle, a former member of Congress representing Iowa, said he data security should be at the top of lawmakers’ to-do list, noting, “that has possibly the best likelihood to move.”Donovan said any data protection bill should put the same kind of protection and remediation requirements on merchants that financial institutions already face.“When that payments system is secure from all angles, we’ll see the number of data breaches decreases,” Donovan said.
Not every problem in an organization makes it all the way to the CEO’s ears. That’s why it is important as a leader to set the expectation that all employees are problem solvers. If someone sees an issue and has an idea to fix it, they should feel comfortable sharing it. Letting problems fester can create negative undercurrents among employees and potentially impact the customer experience.Leadership guru and award-winning author David Dye identifies two reasons why employees don’t offer up solutions more often: no one asked directly, and employees don’t think anything happens afterward.To address these sentiments, Dye offers seven ways leaders can respond to employees’ suggestions and encourage more solutions:Say “thank you.” Acknowledging an employee’s contribution and effort makes them feel valued. continue reading » 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr read more

Dan Cohen AUTHOR Spikes now being installed on the White House fence to enhance security were manufactured at Rock Island Arsenal’s Joint Manufacturing and Technology Center.The “removable anti-climb feature consisting of sharp metal points” was designed by the U.S. Secret Service. Rock Island Arsenal, located on the Mississippi River between Iowa and Illinois, is the Army’s only full-scale metal manufacturer. Personnel from the Joint Manufacturing and Technology Center began helping to install the spikes last week. The work should be finished next month.The security enhancements are intended only as a temporary measure; the Secret Service and the National Park Service are developing a long-term design solution. The modifications are a response to an incident last year in which a man carrying a knife scaled the White House fence, ran across the North Lawn and entered the residence before being tackled by a Secret Service officer.To see the fencing being installed, watch a video from the Washington Post. read more
Kolkata: Coming down heavily on the BJP, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday said the soaring prices of essential commodities will result in the middle-class being badly hit which will, in turn, become a question of their basic sustenance. “The hike in fuel price will affect the kitchen while the rise in the price of petrol and diesel will hit the transport sector badly,” she told newsmen on Saturday.The Chief Minister also said that the price of cooking gas has skyrocketed without any rhyme or reason. “Things are going beyond the reach of the middle-class. How can they make their both ends meet? How can they sustain,” she said and added: “But the Centre is not taking any measure to bring down the prices of petrol and diesel and that of the cooking gas.” Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsIt may be mentioned that the Trinamool Congress is the first national party to raise voice against the hike in the price of fuel. The Trinamool supremo had instructed her party leaders to hold rallies and meetings throughout the state. On Tuesday, the youth wing of the party had held a sit-in demonstration at the Gandhi Statue. The meeting was addressed by the president of the youth wing Abhishek Banerjee.Banerjee has said over and again that the hike in the prices of petrol and diesel are affecting the transport sector badly. “The Centre is totally indifferent towards this problem faced by the common people,” she maintained.

I want to be by the side of my people on the day of festivals. I take part in Durga Puja, Eid and Christmas and I do not differentiate between communities. I think they did not check the calendar before fixing the date of the meeting.” read more
