  • NBA commissioner weighs in on China, Hong Kong controversy

    first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailScott Evans / ESPN Images(NEW YORK) — NBA commissioner Adam Silver has voiced his support for Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey, whose pro-Hong Kong tweet set off a firestorm of debate.At a press conference in Japan Tuesday, Silver said the NBA will protect its employees’ freedom of speech.“The long-held values of the NBA are to support freedom of expression and certainly freedom of expression by members of the NBA community,” the commissioner said.Overnight, Silver also released a statement:I recognize our initial statement left people angered, confused or unclear on who we are or what the NBA stands for. Let me be more clear.Over the last three decades, the NBA has developed a great affinity for the people of China.  We have seen how basketball can be an important form of people-to-people exchange that deepens ties between the United States and China.At the same time, we recognize that our two countries have different political systems and beliefs.  And like many global brands, we bring our business to places with different political systems around the world.But for those who question our motivation, this is about far more than growing our business.Values of equality, respect and freedom of expression have long defined the NBA — and will continue to do so.  As an American-based basketball league operating globally, among our greatest contributions are these values of the game.In fact, one of the enduring strengths of the NBA is our diversity — of views, backgrounds, ethnicities, genders and religions.  Twenty-five percent of NBA players were born outside of the United States and our colleagues work in league offices around the world, including in Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Taipei.With that diversity comes the belief that whatever our differences, we respect and value each other; and, what we have in common, including a belief in the power of sports to make a difference, remains our bedrock principle.It is inevitable that people around the world — including from America and China — will have different viewpoints over different issues.  It is not the role of the NBA to adjudicate those differences.However, the NBA will not put itself in a position of regulating what players, employees and team owners say or will not say on these issues.  We simply could not operate that way.Basketball runs deep in the hearts and minds of our two peoples.  At a time when divides between nations grow deeper and wider, we believe sports can be a unifying force that focuses on what we have in common as human beings rather than our differences.The backlash began when Morey tweeted an image that read “Fight for Freedom. Stand with Hong Kong” last week, supporting pro-democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong. Morey deleted the tweet but it prompted Chinese state television and internet giant Tencent — who inked a five-year, $1.5 billion deal in August to stream NBA games in China — to announce they will not show Rockets games.Furthermore, former Rockets star Yao Ming announced that the Chinese Basketball Association, which he is president of, is suspending its relationship with the Rockets.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

  • Member data and the merger effect

    first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr There are a lot of considerations for any organization going through a merger. It takes cooperation and patience to combine cultures, assets and staff during a merger, but for credit unions, the effect on members is a major factor to keep at the forefront. Members often come to credit unions to experience a better value through more customization, better service and a more personal banking experience. A merger might be unsettling for members, so it’s important to reassure them that their experience will not be negatively impacted by the changes a merger will bring. To actually follow through on that, maintaining a tight lock on member information and data will be essential. Here are some tips regarding member data security that credit unions should know when embarking on a merger.RankBegin by ranking the importance of all the data and segment by data type. This might include checks, financial statements and reports, loan agreements, etc. Ranking this data will give it a score that reflects its sensitivity, access level, retention period and how critical the data is to your CU and members. This will allow your credit union to lock down the most sensitive and important data first and move deeper into data that is ranked at a lower priority. continue reading »last_img read more

  • World Athletics Championship : What To Expect From Team Nigeria

    first_imgNigeria will be represented by 12 track and field athletes at the 16th edition of the IAAF World Athletics Championships to kick off this Friday in London. As usual, the team will be led by the most successful Nigerian athlete in the Championships, Blessing Okagbare, a Silver and Bronze medal in Moscow in 2013 seals that fact.For the umpteenth time heading to a major athletics event, Nigeria relies on Okagbare to put its name on the medals board, a hopeless stance this time around. Okagbare has posted slower times for a while now, only able to hit a sub 11 seconds once this year – a 10.99s 3rd place finish at the London meeting, lost her hair in the Long Jump in Oslo but was able to retain her 100m title at the Warri Relays.Oluwatobiloba Amusan has been hugging the headlines since the wee end of 2016, mostly racing for her school – The University of Texas at El Paso in the NCAA. Notable achievement is posting a time of 12.57s in Eugene, a record which ultimately landed her a 2nd spot in world, only bettered by World champion Kendra Harrison – 12.55s in 1st place back in June. The world Champs is nothing like the fields in the NCAA, perhaps Amusan could have tested her might against a tougher field in Lausanne but was hampered by visa issues. Amusan was awarded the best female athlete in her conference, but on her debut in London, the Nigerian champion will be racing against the best legs in the world. It’ll be great to at least see her reach the semi-finals. The ever smiling Ese Brume has tasted the big stage before, placing 5th overall at the 2016 Rio Olympics.Brume is shy and at that point where her potential is beginning to burst out, the student-athlete is racing for Adidas at the Eastern Mediterranean University in Cyprus. She leaped to a mark of 6.49m at the Drake Relays in April and also defended her national title at the All Nigeria Track and Field Championships last month.It’s been a while we had sibling athletes in the Nigeria athletics frame, perhaps not one of note since the Ezinwa Brothers, this time it’s Glory and Samson Nathaniel. Samson is currently the National champion with PB of 45.23s in the Men’s 400m while sister Glory posted a PB of 55.90s in the Women’s 400mH in Baku. Both will have to better their times to enable them get out of their respective heats.There’s a somewhat ray of hope that the quartet of Okon-George, Yinka Ajayi, Margaret Bamgbose, Emerald Egwin and Abike Egbeniyi will yield at least a semi final finish in women’s 4x400m relay, anything outside that is being hopeful.Shot Putter Chukwuebuka Enekwechi will be competing for Nigeria for the time, with a SB of 21.07m, he will get to the final if he throws a similar distance in London, but that’s asking for too much from a debutante.According to the grapevine, the Athletics federation of Nigeria are still waiting on the Ministry of Sports for funds, It’s not soothsaying but most of these athletes will end up in London by paying through their own pockets. So about what to expect, you do the maths.Relatedlast_img read more
