First the 32nd annual Fort Wayne Farm Show was moved from its usual January timeframe to new dates in March because of the pandemic. Now the annual event at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne is canceled altogether.Show Director Dan Slowinski says it was uncertainty that finally made the decision clear.“With the recent spike in Indiana and the color coordinating that they do with the counties, Allen county being in the orange and flirting with the yellow, it just wasn’t a feasible option. There’s too much on the line we felt like. We felt this was the safest and smartest decision to make for the show altogether.”Slowinski says exhaustive efforts were taken to produce this year’s Fort Wayne Farm Show. The postponement to March was one of those, but additionally the floor plan was modified, extra masks and sanitizer were to be provided, there just wasn’t an option that would allow for a strong show.Unlike some business models that may permanently change even after this pandemic, he expects farm show patrons will be anxious to visit those shows once again.“I 100 percent expect that,” he said. “I expect it to be a very positive and strong show and I know both exhibitors and attendees are going to be anxious to get there and I see us coming out of this thing stronger than ever, yes.”The next Fort Wayne Farm Show is set for January 18, 19, and 20 of 2022.Tradexpos, Inc. produces Ft. Wayne and three other indoor agricultural tradeshows, and they did keep their Wichita Farm & Ranch Show in early December open.“It was a slightly smaller show than previous years, which was expected, but the overall feedback we got back from the exhibitors was very positive. They were happy to have the show. They had a good experience and overall we consider it a successful show.”For now, the North American Farm & Power Show in mid-March in Minnesota and the Topeka Farm Show in mid-April are planning to open.

The Impact of Hailstorms on Home Maintenance

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / The Impact of Hailstorms on Home Maintenance Subscribe About Author: Radhika Ojha in Daily Dose, Featured, News, REO Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Some states across the country saw an increase in home maintenance activities despite an overall housing slump in March. This, according to the latest BuildFax Housing Health report.The report, which explored the projected impacts of hail season on the housing stock, also leverages U.S. property condition and historical data to deliver macro- and microeconomic trends.The largest year-over-year increases were seen in New Mexico, New York, and North Carolina at 11.3%, 11%, and 7.5% respectively. Heading into summer, the report noted that the percentage of maintenance projects was likely to rise in hail- and hurricane-prone states.It noted that as it rebuilds from the impact of Hurricane Florence, North Carolina continues to see elevated maintenance activity with recovery expected to last at least seven months for major repairs such as roof, plumbing, electrical, and mechanical.As the hail season picks up, the report also projected increased maintenance work across the Midwest and Texas. According to the report, between 2011 and 2016, hail storms and wind damage accounted for 40% of all insured losses on a national level “and estimates continue to climb.”BuildFax also analyzed five severe hail storms over the past three years in Minnesota, Colorado and Texas to reveal that the average recovery of major systems following such storms lasts 5.4 months.Roof and mechanical systems saw the most impact from a storm. The report noted that on a national level, roof maintenance increased 246.92% in the first three months following the average hailstorm compared to the year prior. In hail-impacted areas, homeowners risked repeated property damage, “but insight into property change and risk conditions enables carriers to accurately estimate claims pay outs and resolutions.”The report draws focus to property insurance as both, home maintenance and delinquencies tend to spike after a storm. As reported recently by DS News, without proper insurance, many homeowners impacted by natural disaster may be forced into foreclosure.Looking at the overall housing market, the report saw a downward trend in housing indicators in March. While single-family housing authorizations decreased by 8.39%  existing housing maintenance volume decreased by 5.07% year over year.  Existing housing remodel volume also decreased by 9.76% during this period.“The downward trend in housing activity has led to increased focus on the sector,” said Jonathan Kanarek, COO, BuildFax. Yet, there’s hope for the spring season.“In March, the Fed signaled no additional rate increases in 2019, which could boost investment in the housing market. The announcement is good news for consumers heading into the spring homebuying season. We may see some relief across maintenance and remodeling indicators, as home sales typically facilitate investment into the existing housing stock,” Kanarek said.

Red Cross Seeks $1 Million For Victims Of Agatha In Guatemala

first_imgBy Dialogo June 04, 2010 The International Federation of the Red Cross launched an appeal seeking to collect a million dollars in aid for 7,500 people in Guatemala affected by Tropical Storm Agatha. The aid will contribute to providing “food and non-food relief items, emergency health care and shelter and water and sanitation” for 7,500 people over the next six months, the organization announced. In addition, the International Federation will send 300,000 dollars to its local branches in Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador for the purpose of assessing the damage and offering food support and relief items to the victims. So far, aid for 5,000 people in the affected countries has been mobilized from Panama, according to a statement by Paco Maldonado, the coordinator of the International Federation’s Pan-American Disaster Response Unit, headquartered in Panama. The aid consists of hygiene kits, kitchen utensils, containers of water, mosquito nets, blankets, and water filters, according to Maldonado. Agatha, the first tropical storm of the 2010 hurricane season, dissipated Sunday after striking a heavy blow to the Pacific coast of Central America. The storm brought torrential rains that led to floods, landslides, structural collapse, and the blockage of access routes to a number of communities, leaving at least 184 dead and more than 100 missing, 50,000 people directly affected, and 140,000 people indirectly affected across the region, according to the Red Cross.last_img read more

NBC’s obsolete Olympics: Is your credit union cable-passé?

first_img 4SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Heather Anderson Heather Anderson is co-founder of OmniChannel Communications, a marketing company that serves fintech and asset/liability management firms. Previously, she was executive editor of Credit Union Times. She has more … Web: Details Thank god the Olympics are over. I’d rather watch another video of Armenian weightlifter Andranik Karapetyan dislocating his elbow than suffer through another painful night of NBC’s Olympic coverage. The network’s outdated programming has only reinforced television’s growing relevancy problem with tech and social-savvy viewers.Is your credit union making the same mistakes?Take, for example, the network’s sexist commentary. I had seen some social media posts criticizing the network but didn’t think much of it. Everybody criticizes the media.But not even five minutes after tuning in, my jaw dropped when I saw it for myself. As gold medalist swimmer Abbey Weitzeil entered Aquatics Stadium, commentator Rowdy Gaines quipped, “Let’s get a smile, Abbey.”No commentator would dream of encouraging Michael Phelps to smile for the good folks watching on TV right before he competed for Olympic gold.Why does it matter? Because it communicates that men compete, while women merely perform. That’s sexist, outdated and flat-out repulsive.If you don’t realize how much women bristle at being told to smile, you’re probably loathed in your credit union. Millennial women often respond to such a patronizing request with indignation. Baby boomer and Gen X women aren’t as obvious. They’ve grown accustomed to forcing a pleasant facial expression the clueless man perceives to be a smile intended to brighten his big, important day.The outward response doesn’t matter – all three generations of women note to avoid this man in the future. If he’s in the business of growing market share, he’s striking out with half of his prospects.NBC’s scheduling and delivery channels are also frustrating. Because the network only shows events during prime time, by the time it airs here on the West Coast, I’ve known the results for three hours or more. NBC is live streaming events this year for the first time ever on its website, but a cable provider login is required.In an omnichannel world, NBC will die a slow, painful death if it limits online viewers to only cable subscribers. By the next Olympics, it’s estimated at least ¼ of U.S. households won’t have cable service. The network paid $4 billion for exclusive domestic broadcast rights in the U.S.; that’s a lot of money to limit access to a rapidly decreasing market.Does your credit union provide an omnichannel experience? If you don’t communicate with members via text message, interact with them on social media or provide a mobile app that offers complete account access, the answer is no. And if that’s the case, you’re also dying a slow, painful death.Consumers today want what they want, when they want it and how they want it. There may be significant operational hurdles that prevent you from offering a true omnichannel experience, but consumers don’t care about your problems. The cooperative structure is important within the credit union community, but consumers aren’t willing to sacrifice convenience and innovation to support the credit union philosophy.Just like Netflix, Hulu and livestreaming apps provide an alternative to cable television, there are plenty of innovative financial service providers ready to steal your market share. Like the Olympics, the purchase of goods and services will survive the ages. How you deliver that service determines whether you survive, too.last_img read more
