Will live mobile video banking become the branch of the future?

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Typically when bank and credit union executives hear “video banking” they think of ITMs — interactive teller machines — units used for drive-up banking and in-branch kiosks. They’ve been around for years and a number of institutions have had success with them.But now the technology has evolved, and so have consumer habits. Chatting by FaceTime or Skype is done by millions every day. Video conferencing has become commonplace in business. And of course people create and view videos constantly with their mobile phones.So why not skip the trip to the bank and just video-connect on your phone with your favorite banking assistant to help you with getting a mortgage or setting up a CD ladder? Sure you could just Skype them if you had their number but that wouldn’t allow you to view, exchange and even sign documents on your phone or laptop. continue reading »last_img

Indonesia needs 31,000 charging stations to reach electric vehicle goals

first_imgPLN technology vice president Zainal Arifin said on Tuesday, Sept. 1, that such stations mainly catered to commercial always-on-the-go vehicles such as taxis, buses and online motorcycle taxis. Personal vehicles could charge when parked at home.In general, “the most effective way is charging overnight and so we can make that [night time] electricity cheaper,” he added at an online discussion about a new Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry regulation on EV charging stations.PLN’s road map and the energy ministry’s regulation tick two more boxes on a checklist of regulations hoped to foster EV growth in Southeast Asia’s largest economy. The two documents build upon Presidential Regulation No. 55/2019 on EVs.Read also: Jokowi signs electric vehicle regulation” The company projects over 326,000 EVs on the road between 2020 and 2025, which would slash Indonesia’s reliance on oil, a commodity that is heavily imported at the expense of swelling the country’s trade deficit.According to available traffic police data, there were 1,419 EVs, 95 percent of which were motorcycles, in Greater Jakarta as of August last year.The energy ministry’s new regulation supports EV growth by standardizing charging socket types and centralizing business permit issuance for three stations types: battery swapping, commercial charging and private charging.“The rule is consumer protection. Give consumers the choice,” said energy ministry electricity business development director Hendra Iswahyudi of regulation No. 13/2020.On Sept. 1, the ministry inaugurated the country’s first set of battery swapping stations for electric motorcycles. The stations are owned by startup PT “EzyFast” Energi Pratama.The number of battery swapping stations in Indonesia is expected to reach 52,125 by 2030 to accommodate electric motors, according to the energy ministry and the Agency for the Assessment and Application of Technology (BPPT).However, Hendra and Zainal acknowledged that much work remained such as drafting laws over battery recycling and – the elephant in the room – making electric cars cheaper.Electric cars cost three times more than their fossil fuel-powered counterparts, while electric motorcycles cost 1.5 times more, according to a study by Jakarta-based energy think tank the Institute for Essential Services Reform (IESR).The IESR identified the lack of charging stations as one of three key factors inhibiting electric car growth in Indonesia. The other two were limited fiscal incentives and the high costs of supporting EV infrastructure.“The domestic vehicle industry is not yet developed so, for 2 to 3 years to come, it is likely that most electric vehicles will be imported,” IESR executive director Fabby Tumiwa told The Jakarta Post on Wednesday.He noted that setting charging station standards helped attract investors as standardization prevented the stations from turning into stranded assets.Fabby also emphasized the need to detail an electricity pricing and station location strategy, adjusted to known EV charging habits, to boost EV growth in Indonesia.Topics : State-owned electricity giant PLN estimates that Indonesia needs more than 31,000 new electric vehicle (EV) charging stations by 2030 to reach government goals.Private and public players need to invest Rp 54.6 trillion (US$3.7 billion) to install 31,000 commercial charging stations over the course of 10 years, according to PLN’s station development road map.Over a third of the stations will be in Jakarta, while the rest in cities as far east as Makassar, South Sulawesi. Apart from at gas stations, such charging stations will be built at shopping malls, markets and apartment complexes, among other sites with sizable parking lots.last_img read more

Bucksport football rolls to Senior Night victory

first_img Latest Posts Latest posts by Mike Mandell (see all) Mike MandellMike Mandell is the sports editor at The Ellsworth American and Mount Desert Islander. He began working for The American in August 2016. You can reach him via email at mmandell@ellsworthamerican.com. BUCKSPORT — Joel Sankey was one of two people at midfield, but he wasn’t easy to see.With temperatures dipping below freezing on the coldest night of fall so far, the longtime Bucksport head football coach’s face was buried deep in the hood of the large parka he was wearing. The players and other coaches high-fived and celebrated near the 20-yard line, but Sankey lingered to have a word with a referee.As he finished his conversation and walked over toward his team, he pulled back the hood to reveal a wide grin on his face. Bucksport, which was 1-3 three weeks earlier after suffering a blowout loss to Orono on Homecoming, had just won its third game in a row.“Even when things weren’t going well, I told you that you could be a good football team,” Sankey told his players. “Guess what? You’re a good football team.”This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textBucksport showed as much in the team’s 39-8 victory over the Houlton Shiretowners on Friday night. Although the Golden Bucks turned the ball over four times in the first half, their stout performance on defense overwhelmed the Shiretowners and allowed their offense to pull away late.After a scoreless first quarter, Chase Carmichael opened the scoring for Bucksport on an 11-yard touchdown pass to Keigan Riccard with 5:20 left in the first half. That looked to be all Bucksport would get in the half until Carmichael found Carter Tolmasoff for a 60-yard touchdown with 32 seconds remaining to give the Golden Bucks a 13-0 lead.Midway through the third quarter, Carmichael found Tolmasoff once again. His third touchdown pass of the game went for 50 yards and put Bucksport (4-3) up 19-0. It also gave Tolmasoff, who had found ways to slip through the Houlton secondary all night, more than 100 receiving yards.“For the first [touchdown], the corner was covering me man-to-man all by himself, and the second time, they had a linebacker on me,” Tolmasoff said. “I was just able to get past their guys both times, and Chase threw good passes my way.”Matt Vincent, who rushed for over 200 yards against Stearns/Lee Academy last week, punched the ball in from a yard out to give Bucksport a 25-0 lead with three minutes after Tolmasoff’s second touchdown. Houlton (2-5) avoided a shutout with a touchdown and 2-point conversion with 9:43 to play, but another score from Vincent and a 46-yard touchdown run from Luke Wardwell finished off another decisive home win for the Golden Bucks.“This was just a great win for us, and it’s a great moment to go out on as a senior playing on this field,” Brody Boynton said. “Defensively, I thought we just stopped them well all night. Even after they got that one touchdown they had on us, the offense went right back to work and scored again.”The mood around the team has changed, too. After a 3-5 year in 2015 and a rough start to this season, Bucksport is starting to look a bit like the Golden Bucks of old. With two games remaining, the toughest part of their schedule — the three-game stretch against Maine Central Institute, Dexter and Orono in September — is behind them.After Sankey concluded his talk, the Bucksport players did their “DIG DEEP!” victory chant. They do it after every win, but this one was particularly special.“Seniors, this is the last time you’ll do this on your home field,” assistant coach Sean Geagan said. “Make it one you remember.”At this rate, that chant could last through October. And with the playoffs around the corner, the Golden Bucks might get to do it on with their coach’s face deep in his parka a few more times.Bucksport’s next game will be on the road against the Mattanawcook Academy Lynx at 7 p.m., Friday, Oct. 21.
