Holler If Ya Hear Me Brings Major Renovations to Palace Theatre

January 18, 2021 0 Comments

first_imgSay goodbye to the Palace Theatre as you know it! According to the Wall Street Journal, the upcoming Broadway musical Holler If Ya Hear Me will bring major changes to the theater in the form of a $200,000 renovation. The restructuring will create a much more intimate atmosphere for the audience of the musical inspired by the lyrics of legendary rapper Tupac Shakur, which is set to begin preview performances on May 29. The ground-level orchestra seats have been changed into stadium-style seating, often found in movie theaters, reducing the theater’s capacity from 1,740 to 1,120. The renovations will also extend the stage out past the proscenium arch, covering the orchestra pit. The production will have to return the theater to its original state when it shutters. Written by Todd Kreidler, the non-biographical story of Holler If Ya Hear Me focuses on two childhood friends living in a poverty-stricken Midwestern industrial city, struggling to realize their dreams. The production will feature songs from throughout the late rap icon’s career, including “California Love,” “Keep Ya Head Up,” “Me Against the World” and, of course, the title song. The previously announced cast includes Tony winner Tonya Pinkins, Saul Williams, Christopher Jackson, Saycon Sengbloh, Ben Thompson, Tony nominee John Earl Jelks, Joshua Boone and Dyllon Burnside.

first_img 4SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr by: Nicole ReyesExperts are expecting another busy holiday season for retail data breaches and financial sector cybersecurity incidents. When asked if he expects another major retailer breach in the next few weeks, cybersecurity investigative journalist Brian Krebs told CBS This Morning, “I don’t have any doubt.”To share fraud-detection learnings and best practices for minimizing financial losses related to a breach, TMG will present a complimentary webinar, “Year of the Data Breach in Rewind,” for financial institutions (FIs) on Tuesday, Dec. 9.During the hour-long event, I’ll provide insight on how Target and the myriad of breaches since continues to impact credit union and community bank card issuers. I’ll outline the methods TMG has employed to not only spot, but also predict – and, importantly, stop – attacks on consumer accounts stemming from stolen payment card data.Card fraudsters are bringing their A game. And they aren’t just after card data. They’re exploiting any kind of sensitive info they can access. Email addresses create more effective phishing campaigns; answers to security questions easily found on social networks can get them access to accounts via call centers. We’re looking at much more than payment fraud, and fortunately, consumers are becoming more aware of that. continue reading »last_img read more

Wait, what’s a chatbot again?

December 17, 2020 0 Comments

first_imgChatbots are a buzz-worthy topic for all organizations, including credit unions. Members can interact with chatbots in the digital channels they use regularly, like messaging apps and smart speakers, to receive personalized service and support. Chatbots can help fulfill common tasks like verifying account balances, paying bills, and transferring funds between accounts without having to speak with a member service representative. Implementing a chatbot can provide a custom-tailored experience for members while streamlining internal operations for credit unions.Although chatbots are designed to be user-friendly and intuitive, understanding how they work can be a challenge. There’s complex technology running behind the scenes that make chatbot interactions so effortless. You may have heard terms like artificial intelligence, natural language processing, and machine learning in relationship to chatbots. What do these terms mean and how do they come together to create a chatbot? Here’s a shortlist of chatbot-related terminology to help get you started. CHATBOT – A chatbot is a computer program that’s designed to simulate a two-way conversation with another human. Chatbots rely on text input (for example, a user typing a question and submitting it to a chatbot via Facebook Messenger) or speech input (for example, a user initiating a chatbot conversation with voice commands via a smart speaker like Amazon Alexa). For credit unions, chatbots can be an automated means of interacting with members to answer questions and deliver service around the clock. VIRTUAL ASSISTANT – A chatbot might seem similar to a virtual assistant, but they are two different technologies. Virtual assistants (Apple’s Siri, for example) perform simple task completion like checking the weather or locating the nearest restaurant. Although virtual assistants make use of some aspects of artificial intelligence, they aren’t a chatbot because they’re focused on task completion rather than two-way conversation. Another key distinction is that chatbots can chain together several different instructions to achieve goals while virtual assistants typically do not. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI) – AI allows a computer program to complete tasks that would otherwise require human intervention. For example, facial recognition once required both cameras and human beings to make positive identifications. Computer programs now perform this task quickly and at scale by digitizing facial characteristics to find matches. Another example is language translation. Translation programs powered by AI can now translate speech in real time to break down barriers in interpersonal communication. MACHINE LEARNING (ML) – ML is a subset of AI that allows computer systems to learn and improve from experience without direct programming. The technology allows programs to learn from what they do successfully as well as from the mistakes they make, giving them the ability to grow without explicit intervention from a programmer. NATURAL LANGUAGE PROCESSING (NLP) – NLP is a subset of computer science that’s focused on the interaction between computer programs and human languages. NLP combines with ML and AI to understand commands submitted by a human in their own language. Using bill payments as an example, a member might ask a similar question in many ways. For instance, “What do I owe this month?” “What is my current bill?” “How much is my balance?” “What do I need to pay?” These questions are all worded differently, but the intention behind them is the same. NLP helps computer systems understand that, although each question is unique, all should yield the same answer. 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Alison Arthur Alison creates timely product marketing and thought leadership content that keeps Alacriti’s community informed on the latest developments in billing and payments technology.

Pandemic, omnibus bill to greatly impact small-scale fisherfolk

October 19, 2020 0 Comments

first_imgWhile their livelihoods are already affected by the COVID-19 outbreak, small-scale fishermen in the country may face more danger in the form of a contentious omnibus bill on job creation, which may place them in an unfair competition with larger fishermen.Madina, 47, a fisherman for over two decades in Cilincing, North Jakarta, said 2020 had so far been the hardest year to make ends meet.The period from March to May is typically not off-season for fishing, even for small-scale fishermen with small boats like himself. Yet he has not been able to find markets or wholesalers who wanted to buy his catch at a proper price in the past few months, given that many businesses — like restaurants — are suffering financially due to the COVID-19 outbreak.He said he used to be able to sell various fish at around Rp 18,000 (US$1.20) per kilogram and up to Rp 30,000 for crabs. But now, he can only sell fish for Rp 10,000 per kg and even as low as Rp 5,500 per kg to fish-curing businesses just to get through the day.The daily volume of fishing catch varies among fishermen, depending on the size of their boats. A small fishing vessel with two to three additional crew members can usually catch 20 to 40 kg of fish during regular seasons, according to Madina. Meanwhile, he must spend at least Rp 160,000 a day on fuel and other expenses for fishing.“Because of the pandemic and social restrictions, every [fishermen] here in Cilincing is affected,” Madina told The Jakarta Post. “But we can’t keep wallowing in it.” Activists have warned of another looming threat even when the pandemic is over, namely the omnibus bill, which is heavy on luring new investments and revises several provisions in the 2004 law on fisheries and the 2016 law on protection for small-scale fishermen. In particular, it no longer distinguishes between fishermen with large boats and those with small boats, which critics say may put small-scale fishermen in an unfair competition with larger fishermen.According to the 2004 law, small-scale fishermen are those operating boats under 5 gross tonnage (GT). While the 2016 law regulates privileges and government subsidies for fishermen with boats under 10 GT.Activists have also criticized the omnibus bill for requiring small fishermen to have permits.“If there are no distinct categories, we fear that larger-scale fishermen would receive the same privileges as smaller fishermen,” Indonesian Biodiversity Foundation (Kehati) program director Rony Megawanto said in a recent online public discussion.He warned that the omnibus bill would also encourage overfishing and threaten marine biodiversity.Not many low-educated small-scale fishermen realize the impacts the omnibus bill would have on their livelihoods in the long run, Madina said.“Not to mention, not many of us have access to information about the omnibus bill,” he said.Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Ministry’s director general for capture fishery Zulfikar Muchtar said that under the omnibus bill, fishermen would instead be classified according to the scale of their business.“If we run a simulation based on the scale of business, small fishermen will be on par with micro and small enterprises. These small-scale fishermen will later be exempted from certain regulations [and obligations], just like what the government is doing with micro and small enterprises,” Zulfikar said.He promised to look into the issue and map the needs of small-scale fishermen, who make up around 90 percent of fisherfolk in Indonesia.According to ministry data, there are 572,270 fishing boats in the country, 506,720 of which are boats smaller than 5 GT, 43,696 between 5 and 10 GT, 17,121 between 10 and 30 GT, and 4,734 are big boats with over 30 GT.Zulfikar said any adjustments favoring traditional fishermen could be followed up by implementing new government regulations (PP) after the omnibus bill was passed into law.Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Minister Edhy Prabowo has encouraged fishermen to apply for loans at the Public Service Agency for Marine and Fisheries Capital Management (BLU-LPMUKP).“Let’s make use of the BLU loan which offers an interest rate of only 3 percent,” Edhy said during a recent virtual public audience with the Indonesian Traditional Fishermen Association (KNTI).Topics :last_img read more
