Hundreds of Thousands of Consumers, Billions of $$ Move to Credit Unions

 

Rising fees at banks spark consumer action during October in run-up to ‘Bank Transfer Day’

Credit Union National AssociationWashington, D.C. – Reacting to rising fees at banks, hundreds of thousands of consumers have rushed to credit unions over the past four weeks, and have joined existing credit union members in depositing or shifting billions of savings to credit unions, according to estimates released today by the Credit Union National Assn. (CUNA), the nation’s largest credit union advocacy group.

Based on the responses of a nationwide survey of 5,000 credit unions, CUNA estimates that at least 650,000 consumers across the nation have joined credit unions since Sept. 29 (the day Bank of America unveiled its now-rescinded $5.00 monthly debit card fee).  Also during that time, CUNA estimates that credit unions have added $4.5 billion in new savings accounts, likely from the new members and existing members shifting their funds. «Read the rest of this article»

Which Way Does the Wind Blow?

 

Written by Michael Finneran
NASA Langley Research Center

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationHampton, VA – On a bluff overlooking the Atlantic, Grady Koch spent a month watching ocean winds.

He beamed a laser over the sea, day after day, measuring conditions offshore using an instrument called Doppler Aerosol Wind (DAWN) lidar.

What Koch learns from the experiment will be used by scientists to advance weather forecasting technology — and also by a consortium hoping to develop a wind farm in the very spot where the wind data is being taken.

Devotional from Brother Shepherd

 

Written by Brother Shepherd

The Cumberland River is up and over parts of McGregor Park and the Riverwalk.Some time back I rode down by the Cumberland River to see how high the water was after the rain that we had.  Many times in the past years, I have seen Cumberland River rise so high that it’s even out of its banks and onto Riverside Drive. I have always been amazed at how much water that took, but the water always recedes.

As the river flows, it reminded me of what Jesus told His disciples, “Out of you shall flow rivers of living water.” This is found in John 7:38. That’s always made me wonder how strong my witness in the Lord has been in years past. Has the Living Water of Jesus Christ flowed out of me? «Read the rest of this article»

AAA Foundation Study Finds

AAA Foundation for Traffic SafetyWashington, D.C. – Nearly all drivers (96 percent) feel drowsy driving is an unacceptable behavior, yet almost a third (32 percent) admitted driving when they were so tired that they had difficulty keeping their eyes open in the past month, according to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety ‘s 2011 safety culture survey.

A study released last year by the AAA Foundation found that one of every six deadly crashes and one in eight crashes causing serious injury involved a drowsy driver. This is substantially higher than previous estimates, confirming the suspicions of researchers that the impact of drowsy driving on motor vehicle crashes, injuries, and deaths has been greatly underestimated. «Read the rest of this article»
