Idina Menzel Sleighs (Get It?) On ‘Do You Hear What I Hear?’

first_img Idina Menzel Star Files Related Shows If/Then star Idina Menzel stopped by Live with Kelly & Michael on December 12 to perform a yuletide classic from her new album, Holiday Wishes. Brace yourselves, because the Tony winner’s rendition of “Do You Hear What I Hear?” is full of riffs, modulations and a whole lotta belt. But really, would that little lamb and shepherd boy have it any other way? Menzel also sat down with Ripa and Strahan, who brought her back to her pre-Broadway days as a Bar/Bat Mitzvah singer. “I’m waiting for those videos to surface, actually, on one of these kind of shows,” the supernova said, “but there are none, thankfully.” Even if there were, she had the forethought to make herself borderline unrecognizable (thanks to some Stiff Sutff), just in case. Check out the clips below, and look out for fellow If/Then co-star Tamika Lawrence on backup! If/Then Show Closed This production ended its run on March 22, 2015 View Commentslast_img read more

Almagro: ICC Should Investigate Torture in Venezuela

first_imgBy Voice of America January 29, 2020 On December 12, 2019, Luis Almagro, secretary general of the Organization of American States (OAS), said that the International Criminal Court (ICC) should investigate torture in Venezuela inflicted on adversaries with the support of Cuban agents.Almagro’s statements followed the presentation at OAS headquarters in Washington, D.C. of the annual report on Venezuela by the Casla Institute, a Prague-based think tank focusing on Latin America.The report accuses the disputed government of Nicolás Maduro of “systematic repression” and of perpetrating “crimes against humanity.”Almagro said that the Casla Institute had found new evidence about torture methods used at clandestine centers in Venezuela, “under clear Cuban influence.”“The systematic and generalized use of torture in Venezuela to attack those who aim to restore fundamental rights and democracy is clearly a crime against humanity that should be immediately investigated by the ICC Office of the Prosecutor,” Almagro said.The OAS secretary general also stressed the lack of “essential guarantees” for citizens in Venezuela, where “the judicial system serves only the regime’s interests” and “security forces systematically persecute every individual who does not obey the dictatorial system.”“Even in the country’s urban areas, which were traditionally loyal to the regime, now the government is sending the Police’s Special Action Forces [FAES, in Spanish], as well as ‘colectivos’ [illegal armed groups that support Maduro] to keep them under control and prevent any dissent,” he added.“Thousands of extrajudicial killings” are taking place, particularly in these areas, he added.Almagro said that the July report of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) reported 5,287 extrajudicial killings in 2018 and 1,569 from January to May 2019, confirming what the OAS had already documented in 2018.In February 2018, the ICC started preliminary investigations on alleged crimes committed in Venezuela during massive protests against Maduro in 2017, which left a death toll of 125.In a report published on December 5, 2019, the ICC’s Office of the Prosecutor said that they expected to finish evaluating the documents provided by the OAS and the OHCHR, among others, “in early 2020.”last_img read more

Mobile banking’s impact on revenues and attrition is astounding

first_img 13SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Though increasing adoption rates seem to have settled the question of demand for mobile banking services, the ROI of mobile banking has proved more elusive. Mobile banking, which may not be perceived to produce direct revenue, must be evaluated by indirect results. Accordingly, Fiserv in conjunction with Raddon Financial Group studied mobile banking users, online users, and branch-only users, and compared their product usage, transaction frequency, attrition rates, and revenue generation.The study found that mobile banking currently offers financial institutions significant ROI with the unrealized potential being in the millions for the average bank or credit union. The value was determined by comparing key attributes in the three months before and after consumers enrolled in mobile banking. The year-long aggregated analysis was conducted at select banks and credit unions using the Mobiliti™ banking and payments solution from Fiserv.Eight credit unions and nine banks across a range of asset sizes up to $3 billion participated. The exhaustive, one-year study anonomously tracked the activity of 240,000 credit union members and 283,721 bank customers. Respectively, these included about 27,000 and 39,000 mobile users.The objective of the study was to assess specific return on the mobile investment. Non-users of mobile services served as a control. continue reading »last_img read more
