Mitek’s “Commercial Mobile Deposit Capture” can certainly add a ton of value to a credit union’s already loaded arsenal of mobile services. It’s the next step in mobile and credit unions can leverage a technology like this to its growing small business membership — which ultimately enhances its value.We invited Mitek’s VP of Product of Mitek Systems Sarah Clark on the show to get the lowdown on this new mobile service. Sarah explains how this remote technology differs from the uber convenient remote deposit capture service that I can’t live without now. We also discussed how this technology can be very attractive and “sticky” service to small businesses looking for a place to manage their money — as well as how it works, why it’s needed, and when it’s available. continue reading »
DURBAN, South Africa (AP):James Taylor led England’s fightback on the first day of the first test against South Africa as his half-century took the tourists out of trouble and to 179-4 at stumps yesterday.The 5-foot-6 Taylor – affectionately nicknamed ‘Titch’ – stood tall for England to make 70 after Dale Steyn’s fiery early burst had the tourists struggling at 12-2 in overcast, fast-bowler-friendly conditions in Durban.”It couldn’t have been more perfect conditions for the South African bowling unit, so, overall, I thought it was a pretty solid day for us,” Taylor said.Steyn struck the first blows with the dismissals of England captain Alastair Cook for a duck and Test debutant Alex Hales for 10. Joe Root’s aggressive innings of 24 ended swiftly, leaving Taylor and Nick Compton to steady the innings.Compton was 63 not out and helped Taylor rescue England with a 125-run partnership on the opening day of the four-Test series against the top-ranked Proteas.Steyn ended their resistance when he tempted Taylor to hang his bat out and feather an edge to wicketkeeper AB de Villiers right at the end of the day.”I loved batting today. It’s just a shame I couldn’t kick on,” Taylor said.

Continue to explore some of the most amazing geocaches around the world. Check out all of the Geocaches of the Week on the Geocaching blog. If you would like to nominate a Geocache of the Week, fill out this form. Unit Headquarters often look like this… Or this. Share with your Friends:More Find “Born” and you might end up doing this. Or this… Another stop along for the outside teams. One of the stops along the way, perhaps? Those who reach this cache know ultimate geocaching success. Snacks for the inside team. The outside teams will just have to wait.Geocache Name:Born (GC5EG96) — by team SOKO Gänseliesel (Hatti1971 & TobiO79)Location:Göttingen, GermanyN 51° 34.319 E 009° 56.308Difficulty/Terrain Rating:D5 / T4Why this is Geocache of the Week:“Born” is a real-time adventure geocache, one of several such caches in Germany. The cache page (which is in German) sets the scene for this adventure (all a hypothetical scenario): The Federal Criminal Police Office has learned that a bombing is imminent in the city of Göttingen. Special Unit “Gänseliesel” has been summoned to begin the investigation. Chief Commissioner Schönbeck has been appointed to lead the unit. So far, the investigation has revealed that the bombs have been placed in Göttingen and are already on a countdown. The clock is ticking.This D5/T4 geocache cannot be found alone. In fact, you’ll need 10-20 geocachers split into three teams in order to have a chance of finding it. One team stays at “Headquarters”: a location of their choosing, preferably filled with snacks. The other two teams are sent to 45 different locations around the city. At every location there’s a countdown, and all three teams are given a question/puzzle to solve.According to the cache owners, “The teams in the city have to use the public transport to get to the locations in time and answer questions about historical or famous places in Göttingen. The team in the headquarter must deal with encryption, picture analysis, internet-research, maps and bus-timetables.”If all three teams solve their puzzles and submit their answers before the clock runs out, they continue on to the next task. This continues until the investigation is concluded and Göttingen is saved when the bomb is diffused. In total, each team is working non-stop for five hours. The moving teams will cover about 45 km throughout the evening, and eventually reach the center of the city. The CO says, “At the end, all three teams get to know where the geocache is hidden and move together to sign the logbook. Some teams even bring a bottle of sparkling wine to celebrate the successful search.”The T4 rating is well-earned. That’s all we’ll say here, but check out the photos below for more about this amazing cache.What the Cache Owner has to say:How often are the teams unable to “defuse the bomb” in time?“If your team starts the hunt for the geocache BORN, you never know if you are succsessfull. If one team is not able to reach the destination in the timelimit, the team in the headquarter cannot give the right answer. The investigation stops and the team must start another time. There ist always a tense between physical effort and moments of happiness on the one side and disappointment if you fail a task. Even though the geocache is difficult D5, some teams get it on the first attempt. Every second teams has to start a second time from a backup-point and only a few teams fail more often.”How long did it take you to develop this cache?“The idea was created in Summer ’14. First we both made a list of locations in Göttingen that are interesting, then Hatti and I spend two days on bikes in Göttingen to visit all this places and take photos of the question-to-answer-stations. Then i took a bus map and planned two routes with basecamp that touch a lot of the interesting places. Meanwhile I develloped the homepage with all the functions you need to play this timed cache and manage teams and so on…The biggest part of work was to invent a story to connect the 26 chapters of the cache and find 3 x 26 tasks to occupy the three groups. When all was done we two played both outside-routes in realtime to check if the calculated times are ok to get to know what the cache will look like for the teams. The last step was a beta-test with a little group of geocachers to test the complete cache. On January the first, the cache was published. I think the cache was surely over 50 hours of planning, phoning, riding in Göttingen…”Is there anything you would like to say to the Geocaching community?“We love to invite you to come to Göttingen to find BORN or our brand-new spin-off ALERT (GC5RRQF). We want you to have a gread time and wish you that you are doing the great experience what it’s like when teamwork succeeds. We have read all the amazing logs on our geocaches and thank for every feedback. Göttingen is an interesting city and you can discover it from a completely different side, if you hurry through the streets with the ticking clock in your neck. It was a hard job to concept our two geocaches, but the feedback from the community is great.”Photos:You know it’s a cool cache when it has its own logo. This team eventually found success.Smiling (and weary) faces after completing the investigation.

A major milestone like 3 million geocaches is the perfect excuse to make an infographic. Who doesn’t love infographics?!In all seriousness, this achievement is thanks to efforts by people all around the world. Collectively, they contributed millions of hours of time — time spent researching hiding spots, making containers, reviewing caches, hosting events, cleaning up the environment, and more. The result is more than 3 million geocaches. It’s 3 million experiences as interesting and varied as the people who created them!Here’s a look inside 3 million geocaches: Share with your Friends:More SharePrint RelatedCelebrate 3 million geocaches with a new souvenir!April 18, 2017In “News”What 2 Million Active Geocaches Means to MeMarch 4, 2013In “Community”Mother of Father’s Day: Investigating The 3 Parts of Every GeocacheJune 21, 2015In “Community”
So what did Vaughn and Wilson think about the time they spent shooting the movie in Google’s Mountain View, California, campus – with its free food, nap pods and colorful bicycles?“It looked like a Sandals Resort,” Vaughn joked.“You assume a lot of work gets done there…” Wilson added.“…But you never see anyone do any work,” Vaughn concluded. fredric paul 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… Related Posts 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout Hollywood is known for making you believe in almost anything, but a new comedy with Google as the backdrop may be asking too much. When I first heard about The Internship, the new comedy about a pair of 40-somethings (played by Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson) who land a coveted summer internship at Google competing against a bunch of college students, I couldn’t understand why the search giant was willing to get involved.Even though co-founder Larry Page stood on stage at Google’s I/O developers conference and lauded the movie’s ability to get kids interested in technology, the concept seemed silly and low-brow and, frankly, not up to Google’s standards. After attending a private screening of the flick – which opens in the U.S. on June 7 – I now totally get why Google jumped in with both feet when co-writer Vaughn called with the idea two years ago. The movie is two-hour a love letter to the idea of Google as both the perfect place to work – and a crusading force for improving humankind. (Some see it as little more than a commercial.)In fact, after watching it, I wanted nothing more than for the movie to be a true story, not just a fish-out-of-water fable set in the Googleplex. But that feeling had nothing to do with the movie’s depiction of Google’s too-good-to-be-true culture, perks or life-affirming mix of meritocracy and paternal benevolence. No, not at all.If Google Can Do This In A Movie…Instead, my fervor to believe centered around one pivotal scene where Vaughn and Owens must prove their mettle manning the phones on the Google Help Line.That’s right, the Google Help Line! Oh, but if it could possibly be so!Of course, anyone who has ever dealt with Google knows that there really isn’t anything like a Google Help Line – at least for the vast majority of customers. Google is great at providing online and automated customer service. But woe betide the Google user who needs help that goes beyond that.Trying to reach a human being at Google is well-nigh impossible, and deliberately so. That kind of customer service just doesn’t scale. Even big corporate customers sometimes get frustrated when they can’t get the kind of help-desk support for which, say, Microsoft is known for. But Google knows that once you start down that rat hole, there’s no coming back.The Internship Is Not A DocumentaryAfter the show, Vaughn, Owen and director Shawn Levy talked to the press and the 100 spiffed-up actual Google Interns (Nooglers, in the company’s parlance) in attendance about how the movie wasn’t even trying to hew very close to reality:“A lot of stuff is realistic,” Levy said, but “this was not a documentary on Google.” The filmmakers were not trying to say “this is really how things are done.” If we were making a movie about Google, we would have done it more accurately,” he added. “But we were making a movie about these two guys, with Google as a backdrop.”Unlike in the movie, Levy acknowledged, real Google internships are not structured around hyper-competitive team contests with only the winning team getting job offers. But Vaughn, who came up with the story and co-wrote the movie, called that competition “the motor of the movie.”Google gave us creative license, Levy said, telling the audience that “It felt like you guys really respected the needs of the narrative.” In return, he added, “We tried to be true to Google… however semi-accurate it may be in regards to how the internship program really works.”According to the LA Times, “Google did have approval over how its products and culture were represented in the film, but it did not have final cut.” The Wall Street Journal, meanwhile, reported that “when filmmakers wanted to introduce a scene in which Google’s self-driving car gets into a wreck, Google objected and the crash was cut.” Top and bottom images by Fredric Paul for ReadWrite. 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People…
“I am neither an accused nor a respondent in the case. The State government has no role in the investigation of this case,” said Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Thursday referring to the ongoing case in the murder of rationalist Dr. Narendra Dabholkar.During a discussion on the Governor’s address in Assembly, the CM, while responding to the issue raised by Chhagan Bhujbal (Nationalist Congress Party), recalled a comment by the Bombay High Court during the hearing in the Dr. Dabholkar case, and said that all organs of democracy must respect the powers and rights of each other.In March, the high court had expressed displeasure over the pace of probe in the Dr. Dabholkar murder and asked whether the Chief Minister did not have time to take stock of the situation. “What is the CM doing? He holds 11 portfolios, including Home, but does not find the time to take stock of the case. His deputies do not have the time to remove obstacles in the probe?” the court had said. Noting that a political leader belonged to the State and not just any party, the court observed, “It is a sovereign function and cannot be outsourced.”Mr. Fadnavis said, “I read the comments in a newspaper and must inform the House that those are not part of the court order.” “Legislature, executive and judiciary are three organs of the democracy and each has their role and rights specified. We respect the judiciary and it is also seen as a place to get justice by common people. I expect that all three organs of the democracy should respect each other’s rights and roles,” he said, adding that he was drawing attention of the Assembly to the academic points so that members could take note.Explaining that the order of the apex court in separate cases have upheld the Right to Reputation, Mr. Fadnavis said he is not connected to the probe in the murder case as it is being investigated by the Central Bureau of Investigation.Watch out for LotusExplaining the type of syllabus being taught to school children, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis read out some easy lines from a Class I Marathi book, much to the amusement of the entire House. CM read out the line ‘Chhagan kamal bagh’ (Chhagan, watch the lotus) looking at senior NCP leader Chhagan Bhujbal who smiled back. Lotus is the BJP’s election symbol and Opposition benches are facing the danger of a mass exodus to the BJP. Another NCP leader Ajit Pawar had on Tuesday commented that BJP should not make the next Leader of Opposition join the party. On Thursday, the House burst into laughter after Chhagan and lotus were connected in one sentence.Yoga lessons from Baba RamdevNewly inducted minister in the Cabinet Ashish Shelar was in for a surprise when he was invited by Yoga guru Baba Ramdev to perform some relatively easy looking asanas. Baba Ramdev was addressing a press conference in the Assembly to launch an initiative for the International Yoga Day, when he invited Shelar to join him on the make-shift stage. Ramdev then revealed he had known Mr. Shelar since 2004 when he displayed his yoga skills for the first in Mumbai at the MMRDA grounds. The minister performed a few moves before hastily leaving the floor, in this case the tiny table on which Ramdev had climbed to perform, with some experience that would hold him in good stead during his tenure.
