When the pandemic crisis hit the U.S. in March of this year, CO-OP transitioned 80% of our workforce to remote work in a matter of days. This enabled staff to continue serving our credit union clients without a hitch.That doesn’t mean the move was without risk. In fact, cybersecurity concerns were top of mind for Paul Love, CO-OP’s Chief Information Security and Privacy Officer. Paradoxically, he viewed it as more of a “people problem” than a technological challenge. ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
London (AFP) – David Gower has urged the rest of world cricket to follow the West Indies in demonstrating a “spirit of co-operation” as the global game looks to get back on its feet amid the coronavirus.The West Indies are due to arrive in England this week, ahead of a three-match Test series rescheduled for July even though the pandemic has claimed at least 48,000 lives in Britain, according to official figures.International matches are central to the financing of the game at all levels, with the England and Wales Cricket Board estimating it could lose £252 million ($316 million) if there are no fixtures at all this summer as a result of COVID-19.“The West Indies have done us a favour,” former England captain Gower told Britain’s Press Association.“It is a unique situation and one with huge pressures.“It will be a huge relief for these games to happen because getting going again is the key.”Gower, the newly-installed president of the Lord’s Taverners, a cricket-related charity that supports disabled and disadvantaged young people, added: “Let’s face it, last year was extraordinary with the World Cup win (by England) and an exciting Ashes but the problem for any sport is that the public consciousness only lasts a short while.“With the exception of football, probably, if you haven’t got live sport you’ve got nothing to pin tomorrow’s newspaper or the next five-minute clip on television or radio.“The losses this year will be sizeable and any loss of income impacts the whole game, from the Test team to counties, to clubs and schools.”Gower said the sport had been grappling with a number of major issues prior to the pandemic.“There were lots of problems in cricket before Covid-19, particularly in terms of the nations outside India, Australia and England, and issues around finance and structure.“They won’t go away on their own but if all this does help foster a spirit of co-operation, so much the better.“It would be great if there was a feeling of all being in this together and if the old power struggles could be set aside in favour of keeping everyone in business, getting games on and keeping everyone safe,” he insisted.
U.S. Golf Flags on the golf course. Sumner Newscow report â€” It might not be an ideal weekend for Memorial Day golf. But if you are driving along U.S. 160 take a gander at the U.S. Golf Flags at the Wellington course.These special flags are in honor of the U.S. Veterans who served our country. Derek Harrison, Wellington golf pro, said the flags will be used only on special occasions like Memorial Day weekend, Fourth of July and on Veteran’s Day.The patriotic gesture probably didn’t help anyone’s golf game, but most would agree it’s a nice touch and salute to our servicemen.Â Follow us on Twitter.

But I’m not sure how many times I’ve seen people golfing and just lay the normal flags on the ground while taking a shot. Of course, this is a “no-no” with the Stars and Stripes. I hope the golfers this weekend have more respect for the US flag than they do the normal golf flags.

Report Reply +2 Vote up Vote down JustMe · 324 weeks ago Obviously done the right way in the picture, Ted. And the fact I have at least two “thumbs down” tells me what some people think of the flag. Which is pretty much a reflection of what they think of veterans. Stay classy, Wellington.

Report Reply +2 Vote up Vote down Crusader pride · 324 weeks ago JustMe are you serious….Wellington does Memorial Weekend like very few small towns. The Avenue of Flags is awesome. The fact that the Golf Course chose to celebrate this great holiday is even more of what Wellington is all about. The fact that you got on here an assumed that the flag would just be thrown around is what people are giving the thumbs down for…I seen several players either just put with the pin in or took turns holding the flag. Maybe you shouldn’t look for the negative in everything….. Report Reply 1 reply · active 324 weeks ago +1 Vote up Vote down JustMe · 324 weeks ago Mr. Pride, I’ve reread my post several times and don’t see anything negative in it. Only a “hope” that they treat the flag with more respect than the normal golf flags. My first sentence even gave them “props” for doing it. Maybe you shouldn’t just look for the negative in my posts.
