Conservatism is in ‘crisis’

first_imgAndrew Sullivan, political commentator and blogger with The Daily Beast, gave the 2011 Theodore H. White Lecture on Press and Politics at the John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum Thursday.In his lecture, “Conservatism and Its Discontents,” Sullivan argued that conservatism today is in a “crisis” and is “unrecognizable” from its traditional heritage. Sullivan said that he “does not recognize the Republican Party as a conservative force.”True conservatism, Sullivan said, is concerned with the “paradox of progress” and recognizes that “society is not a formula” and that “culture matters.” He went on to point out that the state is not the only danger to free society. “The accumulation of power by bankers and corporations is also a threat, and should be subject to conservative critique,” he told his forum audience.Preceding the lecture, the seventh annual David Nyhan Prize was awarded to Thomas Frank, author of “What’s the Matter With Kansas?” and a columnist for Harper’s Magazine. In his remarks upon receiving the award, Frank said, “We are living in an age of catastrophic intellectual malfunction.”Recalling political policies over the past decade, he said, “The consensus was wrong all along,” but added, “my views were outside the consensus.”Thomas Frank was the winner of the 2011 David Nyan Prize. Frank is the author of “What’s the Matter With Kansas?”last_img read more

Mountain Mama: Hitchhiking for the Ladies

first_imgDear Thumbs Up,While hitchhiking is generally never considered a “safe” activity, in many paddling communities picking up kayakers happens often. Other paddlers stop, knowing that it’s just good shuttle karma to give someone a ride – after all what goes around comes around. Even locals accustomed to seeing paddlers to offer rides. Assess the area and decide for yourself whether you think it’s safe to hitchhike.You don’t have to take every ride offered to you. If a ride makes you feel uncomfortable, just say no thanks. When all else fails, a river knife strapped to your PDF might prevent unwanted advances.Setting shuttle can be part of the adventure. There’s something about the anticipation of waiting for a ride, sizing up every passing car to see if the driver will stop. Connecting with the driver provides the random connection that can result in a new paddling friend or an interesting conversation.Besides, a heated car is always warmer than the cozying up with paddling gear at the put-in. Appeal to your man’s sense of chivalry. Praise his toughness for being able to guard the kayaks and withstand the cold temperatures.Thumbs Up, trust your gut to determine whether a particular area and a ride feel safe for hitchhiking. Use common sense when considering what to wear. Paddling gear sends a different message than a bikini. But by all means, get out there and figure out every aspect of paddling for yourself. Feeling comfortable hitching a shuttle will come in handy when you paddling without your man. And remember to return the favor when you have the opportunity to help other paddlers set their shuttle.Cheers!Mountain Mama Dear Mountain Mama,My boyfriend is teaching me to kayak and often we only take one car. He normally drives me to the put-in and I wait there with our kayaks and gear while he drives to the take-out and then hitches a ride. Last time we went paddling, it took him forever to get a ride. I froze waiting for him and told him next time I’d do the hitching, since I’ve got better odds of getting a ride. He told me it wasn’t safe for a woman to hitchhike and he wouldn’t “let” me put my life at risk in order to shave a few minutes off of the time it takes to set shuttle.We’re still arguing. Is it safe for a woman to hitchhike the shuttle?Yours,Thumbs Uplast_img read more

Eleven New Radars Will Shield the Colombian Coast

first_img Colombia acquired eleven new radar systems to shield the Colombian coast, announced the Minister of Defense Juan Carlos Pinzón on August 18, during the inauguration of the new Coast Guard station Coveñas. “The country will be shielded in the coming years, the Colombian coast will be reinforced with the acquisition of eleven radar systems, which willl monitor the coast and vessels at sea,” said Pinzón. The Minister explained that these new monitoring and control capabilities, not only will combatt drug trafficking better, but also smuggling and arms trafficking, among other crimes. “In the next two years, this will allow the Colombian coasts to be under a radar system, which will locate any irregular behavior at sea and on the coasts,” said the senior official. He added: “This also improves the civil navigation, because having good radar systems functions the same as air traffic control in identifying navigation routes and which ships are sailing.” Finally, the Minister of Defense, Juan Carlos Pinzón, announced the strengthening of the Coast Guard’s capabilities, with the acquisition of three new coastal patrol boats and new Midnight-class speedboats.

Growing young professionals into credit union champions

first_imgThe next generation of leaders, who may have not yet reached executive level, are becoming more influential in organizational success. Recognizing that young professionals are proving to be the lifeblood of successful organizations; State leagues and associations offer an artillery of benefits and resources to get them where they want to go.At the Louisiana Credit Union League (LCUL), we recognized early on that not only was there a void in the industry for young professionals to network, but our industry also lacked a platform to help with their overall understanding of the movement. As a result, LCUL took the lead in creating one of the most dynamic networks of young credit union professionals – more than 400 members strong! We are proud to join a long list of state trade associations who have formed similar communities that strive to expose young professionals to credit union values with the goal of developing them into credit union champions.What we’ve learned…A successful paragon of our industry’s philosophy of cooperation and collaboration, leagues and associations regularly share best practices. A hot topic of late is the key components to successfully grooming the next generation of leaders. Some of the things we collectively agreed on:Use them as a resource…and vice versa. An environment where they can learn from industry leaders is ideal, but young professionals also want to share their ideas and opinions. Create an environment where conversations can be beneficial for everyone. This helps establish a level of respect for one another and what each has to offer. In my personal experience, they are a great sounding board during strategic planning as trends move at rapid pace. They also served as a lightning rod to help seasoned professionals like myself reconnect with why I love what I do.Volunteer Opportunities. They’re looking to be a part of something bigger than themselves. This is the perfect opportunity for younger employees to interact with the community while engaging with the credit unions core values all at the same time. It’s a win-win.Networking is everything. We must keep them engaged year-round. The constant connection helps build their relationships as well as their skill set and industry knowledge. And not just networking with peers, but anyone in the business arena that can build their personal brand.Resources for overall development. Yes, it is important to establish what the credit union philosophy is all about and the critical issues that we face. However, it’s just as important to help them grow in the general business arena, such as resume writing and business etiquette.From Ideas to Actions…Leagues play a formative role in engaging young professionals in a variety of ways, providing essentials that will grow our young professionals into credit union champions.The Louisiana Credit Union League flipped the CRASH concept, holding a “reverse crash” at the annual YP conference. A handful of ‘seasoned’ conference attendees had the chance to weigh in on the discussions. Reverse crashers learned just as much, if not more, than from the young professionals in attendance.The Carolinas Credit Union League developed the CUaware Protégé Mentor program, providing credit union professionals in the Carolinas an opportunity to be paired with a mentor from a league-affiliated credit union.YP Leads is open to Northwest Credit Union Association member credit union employees who identify as young professionals. Official YP Leads serve as ambassadors for the movement over a year by committing to serve as a strong credit union advocate by attending an advocacy event or championing local advocacy efforts. More than just a social networking initiative, program participants are exposed to the real issues affecting our industry.Volunteering is the core of all young professional communities and is nearly impossible to list them all. One special example is Oregon’s Pack for Parents. Often parents are blindsided by unexpected and indefinite stays at the hospital. To help alleviate the stress, they packed 300 “overnight” packs to help make their extended stay a little more tolerable.Need a little guidance? The League of Southeastern Credit Union provides a young professional resource page that includes YPG Networking Events Guide and YPG Community Outreach Guide.Like many other leagues, the Virginia Credit Union League hosts an annual YP Workshop strictly dedicated to young professionals. While they discuss issues and topics that matter most within the credit union system, the event also provides guidance for overall professional development applicable in any profession.Cornerstone Credit Union League has their young professionals“takeover” a local chapter meeting, volunteering not only their time, but their ideas, in front of a mixed audience.These are just a few examples of league efforts facilitating engagement and development. You can see that our young professional collaboration initiatives offer just about everything they need to rally around the credit union movement.If you are a seasoned credit union executive, I urge you to make the investment in your young professionals like your associations have. I promise you will see their passion firsthand as they play a significant role in championing issues that impact the future of our industry.  Reach out to your league and ask how they can help you in this effort.If you are a young professional reading this, congratulations on finding yourself in what I believe to be an incredibly special industry! I encourage you to visit your League’s website or contacting a League representative to learn more about young professional initiatives. And don’t be shy about asking the appropriate executive at your credit union to support your participation; my experience tells me they will appreciate your imitative and commitment to credit unions.Regardless of your tenure in the movement, you can help our efforts to retain talent within our movement for the long-term prosperity of credit unions. 91SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Bob Gallman Bob Gallman, a native of Jackson, Mississippi, is the President/CEO of the Louisiana Credit Union League.With extensive credit union career experience, Bobhas an established and significant body of … Web: https://www.lcul.com Detailslast_img read more
