Fitch notes that less than 1% of Fitch-rated RMBS pools have exposure to the areas affected by the earthquakes. Fitch states that less than 1% of Fitch-rated RMBS pools have exposure to the areas affected by the earthquakes, noting that the multiple earthquakes in California last week were in sparsely populated areas.Within the affected areas, Fitch does expects the impact on residential mortgage performance to be modest, and according to Fitch’s data, natural disasters since 1990 have only had a temporary influence on borrower behavior, with delinquency typically returning to pre-disaster levels within 12-18 months.According to Fitch, future natural disasters may bring about more risks, and may impact mortgages more drastically moving forward.“The relatively limited amount of time residential borrowers have been affected by natural disasters in recent decades was mitigated by private insurance, federal disaster funding and stimulus to the economy driven by the recovery, such as construction and repair work,” Fitch states. “Fitch recognizes that future natural disasters may be more severe than those experienced over the past 30 years, potentially resulting in a longer, and more significant, impact on borrower mortgage performance.”Fitch also covered Commercial Mortgage Backed Securities (CMBS). Unlike residential properties, commercial properties do not typically include earthquakes in their insurance coverage. According to Fitch, CMBS exposure in Southern California consists of approximately $34 billion on 2,377 properties, but no negative rating actions are expected for Fitch-rated CMBS with exposure to properties in the region, given servicer advancing, insurance coverage typically required of CMBS loans and strong sponsorship among the larger affected properties. Fitch ratings expects to receive Significant Insurance Event Reports from CMBS master servicers within two to three weeks of events.

Pigeons Playing Ping Pong Harness The Funk For 2 Sold-Out Philadelphia Shows [Recap/Photo/Video]

first_imgPigeons Playing Ping Pong | Theatre of Living Arts | Philadelphia, PA | 11/17/2018 | Photo: Brady Cooling Pigeons Playing Ping Pong returned to Philadelphia last Friday and Saturday for two sold-out shows at The City of Brotherly Love’s Theatre of Living Arts. Consisting of guitarists Jeremy Schon and Greg Ormont, bassist Ben Carrey, and drummer Alex Petropulos, PPPP brought the funk all weekend, dazzling Philly with their entertaining theatrics and high-octane jams. With Pigeons’ dedicated fanbase, “The Flock,” showing up strong, it’s logical that Pigeons Playing Ping Pong will move onto Philadelphia’s The Fillmore the next time they return to town.On Friday night, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong kicked off their first set with “Too Long” and “Somethin’ For Ya” before working through a jam-heavy sandwich of “Time To Ride”/”Kiwi” sandwich. Schon and Ormont flexed some impressive interplay on their PRS guitars, buoyed by Carrey and Pretropulos holding down the steady rhythm section. The four-piece then worked their way through “Overrun”, followed by an impressive cocktail of “Melting Lights”, “Havana” and “Ghostbusters”. “Doc” brought the first set to a close, with Schon firing off on all cylinders.Following a brief set break, Pigeons came back out to open up the second set with “Porcupine” before charging head-first into “Burning Up My Time”. Ormont does an amazing job at captivating his crowd, regardless of the size or venue, and he shined brightly on lead vocals all weekend long. PPPP continued to push forward, offering up a hefty take on “Condenser”, “Su Casa”, back into “Condenser”, with the latter left unfinished. Following “The Hop”, “F.U.”, and “Drunk People”, PPPP invited up vocalist Haley Jane to lend a helping hand on “Love Fool” before moving back into “Drunk People”. Fan-favorite “Penguins” followed, before Pigeons brought the second set to a close with “Funkijam”, “Upfunk”, and “The Liquid”. “Avalanche” served as Friday night’s encore, with Pigeons asserting that there was plenty of gas left in the tank for Saturday night.Pigeons Playing Ping Pong – 11/16/2018With a rowdy crowd begging for more, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong opened up their Saturday show with “Totally” before moving into fan-favorites ” Bad For You”, “Julia”, and “Whoopie”. “Snake Eyes” was next, before PPPP dove into Lion King classic “Just Can’t Wait To Be King”, from their Disney-themed New Year’s Eve show last year. The quartet delivered a serious take on “Lightning” next, before bringing the first set to a close with “Ocean Flows”.Pigeons came back out to open up their second set with “Walk Outside”, before delivering a noteworthy rendition of “Henrietta”. With Petropulos laying down the foundation behind the kit, Schon took off with a scorching guitar solo as Ormont followed closely with the perfect rhythmic riff. An improv-heavy take on “Offshoot” into “Around The World” followed, before the band worked their way into “Funk E Zekiel” paired with “Drums”. Alex “Gator” Petropulos has been crushing the game ever since joining Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, and on Saturday night he ripped up his drum solo, with the faithful “Flock” cheering him on. The band reemerged for “Dawn A New Day” before bringing the second set to a close with “Horizon” into “King Kong”. “Shwanthem” served as Saturday night’s encore, as Pigeons showered their crowd with their psychedelic funk one last time.Pigeons Playing Ping Pong – 11/17/2018Below, you can check out a beautiful gallery of photos from the shows courtesy of photographer Brady Cooling.Pigeons Playing Ping Pong head to their hometown of Baltimore, MD this weekend for a two-night run at Rams Head Live!.

Connect your talent plan to your strategic plan

first_img 7SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Stuart R. Levine Founded in 1996, Stuart Levine & Associates LLC is an international strategic planning and leadership development company with focus on adding member value by strengthening corporate culture.SL&A … Web: www.Stuartlevine.com Details Companies that connect their talent planning to their strategic planning do better. In your strategic planning process, your credit union identifies the most important business opportunities and develops strategies to capitalize upon them. In your talent planning, your organization identifies and quantifies the key roles and responsibilities within your organization and allocates talent to capitalize upon them. Alignment of your strategic planning and your human capital planning should involve all levels of the organization, from the staff, through senior management and up to and including your credit union’s board.You need the right positions and the right people to execute strategy, and for strategy to succeed, rigorous human capital planning must be the rule. Think about the top value creation positions within your credit union and where they are located within the organization. A fresh look at your existing positions will yield new insights. Start by considering current jobs and the goals that each position is designed to accomplish. Then consider the skills of the person needed to realize those objectives. Focus on the outcome you want the position to create, and don’t limit your thinking to the qualities of the employee currently in that position. They may or may not be the right fit. Use quantitative measures for each position’s value to the organization. Apply the same analysis of talent to the positions that do not yet exist, but must be created for your strategy to succeed.Every position should add value to the organization. Yet some positions contribute much more than others. When organizations take a deep dive into the roles with the highest value creation, they generally find that essential positions are filled by people at various organizational levels. Key value-driving roles often do not match the levels on your organizational chart. In fact, your analysis will probably discover that some positions are so important that it would be difficult to function without them, and these positions can be at levels well below the C-suite. Because of their lack of seniority, key positions may not get senior level attention and could be overlooked. The lack of recognition and reward for people in key roles can cause retention and motivation problems, to the detriment of the organization.Extend your talent analysis to your credit union’s board. All too often board recruitment relies on word of mouth and friends of the current board. This is a formula for a uniformity in thinking that can lack the broader perspective that today’s world requires. Continuous technological, tax and regulatory changes in financial services require open-minded creative thinking to grasp business needs and opportunities in new ways. Board members have a duty to provide fellow board members with innovative ideas and new approaches. The right talent mix is needed for your board, just as it is with your entire organization. Talent planning complements your strategy. The strategic planning process guides your organization from where you are now to where you want to be in the future, and your human capital plan makes that strategy a reality. The key positions within your credit union have the strongest affect on strategic advancement. Allocating the best talent to those positions gives power to your strategy.last_img read more

The Best Mens College Basketball Teams Just Arent Very Good This Year

If Michigan State were as strong as the average top-rated team, it would win this year’s tournament a shade less than 17 percent of the time, instead of little more than 10 percent. The same goes for Villanova, a likely No. 1 seed currently ranked second by Pomeroy; instead of being expected to win nearly 18 percent of the time, the Wildcats’ low rating limits them to odds below 12 percent. In fact, the collective tournament win probability for Pomeroy’s top 3 teams is about 14 percentage points lower than it would be in a typical season, simply because 2016 has so much parity — the best teams aren’t as good as top teams normally are.Because the NCAA Tournament is a zero-sum game, the rest of the field gains from this lack of top-heaviness. Although pretty much every team ranked No. 4 to No. 25 by Pomeroy benefits some (teams ranked below that don’t really have much of a chance either way), the biggest beneficiaries are positioned in the back half of the top 10 and into the teens: All of this means more teams will have more of a chance this year than in just about any other season in memory. Get ready for one Mad March. March Madness is always rough on favorites. In your typical men’s college basketball season, the statistical favorite goes into the NCAA tourney with only about a 20 percent to 25 percent probability of winning the championship. In other words, even the “best” team is three or four times more likely to lose early than it is to win it all. We can be vaguely confident that one of the top handful of teams will emerge from March’s wreckage unscathed, but that’s about it. Over the past seven seasons, the eventual champ was (on average) the tourney’s seventh- or eighth-most-likely winner beforehand, according to simulations using Ken Pomeroy’s ratings.And this year has the potential for a lot more anarchy than usual. Michigan State is the consensus top team according to a variety of predictive metrics, but that’s not unanimous — there are some solid indicators pointing to Villanova, North Carolina and surging Kansas as well.1The Jayhawks rank first in Jeff Sagarin’s ranking of recent team performance. And if the Spartans truly are the best, they’re one of the weakest top-ranked squads in recent memory. Since Pomeroy began tracking team ratings in the 2001-02 season, only one No. 1 team — the 2005-06 Duke Blue Devils — owned a lower pre-tournament power rating than Michigan State has now. Plus, Sparty might not even earn a No. 1 seed; only 11 of the 77 bracket prognosticators aggregated by Bracket Matrix see the team headlining a region in the NCAA Tournament.This isn’t meant to pick on the Spartans (sorry, Nate!), but it does illustrate that if even the nation’s strongest team has a number of factors limiting its championship odds, it’s going to be an unusually wide-open year for the tournament.To see exactly how much this year figures to depart from the norm, I plugged Pomeroy’s ratings into ESPN’s latest Bracketology projection, calculating each team’s odds of winning the tournament if Selection Sunday goes as Joe Lunardi predicts. Virginia checked in first with a 12 percent probability of winning — significantly lower than the 20 percent to 25 percent chance held by the typical pre-tourney favorite — followed by Villanova at 11.7 percent and Michigan State at 10.4 percent. I then re-simulated the bracket after assigning each team the typical strength connoted by its Pomeroy ranking — i.e., how much better would the top teams’ odds be if they were as strong as in an ordinary season? read more
