Increased stakes: Fraudsters set sights on high dollar items

first_imgIn the fight against fraud, community financial institutions (FIs) are tasked with finding a balance between stopping card fraud and allowing valid cardholder activity. Although cardholders want their FIs to have fraud prevention strategies in place, they do not want to be inconvenienced by unwarranted declines. More affluent cardholders, in particular, tend to be sensitive to those types of declines.For fraudsters, affluent cardholders present a unique profit opportunity. In fact, there has been a recent spike in thieves focusing their attention on cardholders likely to have higher credit limits. By replicating the transactions these affluent cardholders make, fraudsters can often go largely undetected and live a life of luxury — on the real cardholder’s dime. continue reading » 8SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Equinor to extend lifetime of Oseberg’s smallest platform

first_imgNorway’s Equinor has been granted consent for continued use of the Oseberg Øst (East) platform located in the North Sea until March 31, 2031.Oseberg Øst is the smallest platform in the Oseberg area and it is located in the northern part of the North Sea, 15 kilometers east of the Oseberg field. The field was proven in 1981 and production started in 1999.Equinor had a permit to use the platform through 2018.The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) said on Friday it believes there is a basis for continuing operations on Oseberg Øst to recover remaining resources in the field and therefore has given its consent to Equinor to do so.The original oil reserves were 26.6 million standard cubic meters of oil (167 million barrels). The remaining oil reserves are estimated at 4.9 million cubic meters (31 million barrels).The field was developed with an integrated fixed platform with living quarter, drilling module and separation of oil, water and gas.The oil is transported by pipeline to the Oseberg field center for further treatment and transport via the Oseberg transport system to the Sture terminal in Hordaland County. The gas is primarily used for injection and power production for the installation.Equinor has also received consent from Norway’s offshore safety agency, the Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA), to extend the operating life of the Oseberg Øst platform and associated pipelines to Oseberg A.The PSA said earlier this week that the consent for extended operating life was contingent on the operator having ascertained that the facilities, pipelines and equipment were in a state that permits them to always be operated safely and in compliance with regulatory requirements.Considering that Equinor has made the requisite assessments and investigations to ascertain this, the safety agency has given its consent for extension.Offshore Energy Today Stafflast_img read more

Guardiola won’t watch ‘unstoppable’ Liverpool face Man Utd

No manager wins all the time, we’ve lost some games so what can we do to get better? It’s simple.” Meanwhile, Guardiola has been boosted by the news that defender Aymeric Laporte, out since August with a knee injury, expects to be back for next weekend’s FA Cup tie with Fulham and the second leg of the League Cup semi-final against Manchester United three days later. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Pep Guardiola will not watch “unstoppable” Liverpool’s game with Manchester United this weekend because the gap between the Premier League leaders and his Manchester City side is too big. insists his City players still deserve credit for the way they have played this season, even though they go into their clash with Crystal Palace on Saturday trailing 14 points behind Liverpool. Pep Guardiola won’t watch Liverpool face Manchester United He admits that he is now interested only in securing a top-four finish and chasing honours in three cup competitions rather than events at Anfield involving Liverpool. “We are far away, they are unstoppable in those terms. We’ve dropped points, we conceded and didn’t win games,” Guardiola told reporters on Friday. “This game is about the results and I’m glad we continue to attack quite well but the reality is the reality. They’ve won 20 of 21 games and they’d be leading all the leagues around the world. “It would be nice to focus on Wilfried Zaha and Crystal Palace, and then Tuesday we have Sheffield United. “Being so far away means it’s not interesting to look at what Liverpool do. It’s better to focus on what we can do for the rest of the season in the Premier League and other competitions.” In the past eight years, Chelsea, twice, Leicester and Manchester United have all failed to finish in the top four in a title defence. But City’s 13-point cushion over fifth-placed United makes Champions League football next season look a near certainty for Guardiola. – ‘We are fighting’ – “The target was catch Leicester and now it’s to maintain this, always there is motivation to play good,” Guardiola said. “I think the team show this season that still we are going to do it. What happened to previous champions? They gave up and didn’t quality for the Champions League. “Still we are there fighting, far away but the opponent is exceptional. I’m so proud, now we are in this position we need to qualify as quickly as possible for the top four. That’s the important target.” City’s league difficulties have led to speculation that Guardiola’s long-term commitment to the club might be in question, with the Catalan currently under contract only until the end of next season. There has been talk about the possibility of Guardiola staying beyond that period but, regardless of what happens after the end of his current deal, the City manager is adamant that he will be back for next season. “I’m staying unless they sack me -– 100 percent unless they don’t like it,” he said. “I’ve said it many times. Not because we won the last two games, I’m sorry, I’m going to stay.

Kenny Dalglish impressed by new Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp’s attitude

first_img The 48-year-old German addressed the media on Friday morning for the first time since his appointment was confirmed. He described himself as “the normal one” and said he was committed to “full throttle” football – a philosophy he built in seven successful years at Borussia Dortmund before leaving earlier this year. Dalglish, the last manager to bring the league title to Anfield back in 1990 and a winner of six league titles and three European Cups with the Reds as a player, said: “I just heard Klopp’s press conference and he sounds very, very impressive. I think the supporters will need to fasten their seat belts – I’m sure they will really enjoy him. “He seems to be somebody who’s not in love with himself, which the Liverpool supporters can relate to. I’m sure they will take him to their hearts. He’s described himself as ‘the normal one’ and that will do them fine because they regard themselves as being pretty normal. “I don’t know him – I’ve only seen snippets on TV or radio but he came across very, very well this morning and I think that augurs well for everybody.” Klopp’s reign begins with a difficult trip to Tottenham a week on Saturday, followed by home outings against Rubin Kazan and Southampton in the Europa League and Premier League respectively. Dalglish added: “He’s got off to a fantastic start but it’s a really difficult run of games coming up and I’m sure, as he said this morning, he is going to work as hard as anybody else and if everybody works together it’s not rocket science – (if) everybody works together you’ve got a much better chance of success.” Kenny Dalglish has advised Liverpool supporters to “fasten their seat belts” for life under new Reds boss Jurgen Klopp.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Raptors braced for big response from Warriors in NBA Finals tonight

first_imgBy Frank PingueTORONTO, Canada (Reuters) – The Toronto Raptors scored an impressive win over the two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals opener and are now preparing for what could be a mighty response.Golden State’s bid for a fourth title in five years did not get off to the start they had hoped and while Toronto may feel good about their chances in the best-of-seven series they know they have plenty to improve on to clinch a maiden championship.“We know that after a win the team that gets beat gets really determined. They try to fix things. They mostly play a lot harder and more physical and all those kind of things,” Raptors head coach Nick Nurse told reporters on Friday.“And for us, we just had a lengthy, lengthy film session. There was plenty out there that we need to do better if we want to win another game in this series. “So we have to fix those things and get ready to play a game. And treat it as a game, one game.”Nurse, whose team on Thursday won the first NBA Finals game ever held outside of the United States, said the Raptors will now have to deal with the challenges of getting back to business after experiencing the highest of highs in the series opener. According to the first-year coach, the task for the Raptors starts with transition and doing all they can to make sure the Warriors are forced to play against a five-man defence, which he feels can guard effectively when done right.“A little bit more ball pressure, a little bit more when there’s a mistake somebody covering up that mistake as quick as possible, and then somebody covering up for that guy who just covered up for it,” said Nurse.“But again, it starts with your defence that has to get set up, and Warriors team play really fast.”One player the Raptors will not have to worry about for at least one more game is twice NBA Finals Most Valuable Player Kevin Durant, who has been ruled out of today’s contest with a calf injury, but the Warriors have plenty of other weapons that can take over a game. The Raptors, however, have their share of weapons too, including Cameroonian forward Pascal Siakam, who rose to the occasion with a breakout game on Thursday in which he scored a career-playoff-high 32 points. The timely emergence of Siakam, whose point total was the highest in an NBA Finals game by an NBA G League alumni, gives the Raptors one more weapon should the Warriors manage to keep both Kawhi Leonard and Kyle Lowry in check.“He’s has a God-given ability of having a big engine with lots of energy that enables him to play with a certain speed, athleticism, and enables him to work very hard every single day,” said Nurse.“That motor he’s been given, he’s using to the best of his ability. He soaks up things. He takes it to the court. He works, works, works. He takes care of himself. He’s really got a burning desire to be a very, very good player in this league.”last_img read more
