The OUSU elections suffered another embarrassing setback this week when personalised voting codes arrived almost a day late.Thousands of students were left unable to cast their ballots after the window for voting began on Tuesday, leading to fears that the result of the election might have been affected.It is thought that the problem stemmed from a delay in the mail delivery system, due to a time-lag in sending out vast numbers of personalised emails.On Monday night, election organisers used mail merge to send out 19,000 individual voting codes in personalised emails.However, by midnight on Tuesday, most students still hadn’t received their code. At 9.39 on Tuesday morning, Returning Officer (RO) Madaline Stanley sent emails to JCR and MCR presidents asking them to inform their Common Rooms that the emails containing their voter codes had been delayed and that they should email the RO if their codes had still not been received by 1pm.However, by 1pm, the vast number of students had still not received their codes. It was only through an email dated 02.46 on Wednesday morning that the vast majority of students gained access to the code that would enable them to cast a vote.One student criticised the lack of foresight on the part of the election’s organisers:“This seems to typify the incompetence that most students associate with OUSU.“I think it reflects really badly on OUSU and it’s hard to believe that there had been so little planning and organisation.“I just hope that this doesn’t have a negative effect on the outcome of the elections”. This has been the second major set-back in the run-up to the elections. The election was due to take place last week, but had to be delayed after OUSU newspaper, Oxford Student, failed to print the manifesto of the presidentialcandidate, John Maher, in the Joint Manifesto Booklet (JMB).In an email sent out on Wednesday to apologise for and explain the delay, Stanley stated that the voter codes had been delayed by a “technical error with the mail server” and that “at the present time it seems that some of the messages remain trapped somewhere in the ether”.She stated that members of OUSU’s Elections Committees had spent “all day (and most of the night)” attempting to ensure students received the voting codes in time to vote before the polls closed at 6pm on Thursday.Organisers were forced to resend the codes again using an alternative mail server, meaning that some students received their codes twice. An explanation has not been offered as to why this server was not used in the first place.Stanley explained, “we think it’s better for people to get a couple of emails rather than run the risk of not receiving the original message in time to vote.Your voter codes will not have changed, so there’s no risk of multiple voting.” Stanley apologised for the inconvenience, but stated that it was “perhaps inevitable that we’d experience some problems” as this is the first year that elections have been run online.She claimed that they had attempting to check that the system would work by running a number of test elections but argued that “there was no practical way of simulating an event on this scale”.The extended polling period of three days, rather than one day, was apparently to ensure that time was built in to allow organisers to fix any problems that might arise.Stanley pledged to review the process after the election and ensure that such “trouble spots” do not occur again.The same email also defended RO Madeline Stanley and the OUSU Elections Committee and stated that the “problem at the heart of the delay was a purely technical one that could not have been foreseen or prevented by any single person”.It warned that “ad hominam attacks” on Stanley are “unwarrented [sic] and unfair” and might “constitute harassment under the Proctor’s guidelines.”At the time, the Returning Officer said that “the OUSU elections committee will be spending the extra week to… fine tune the voting system.”

Rhode Island offshore wind project to cost less than 10 cents per kilowatt-hour FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Providence Journal:When critics assailed the high price awarded to Deepwater Wind nearly a decade ago for power from what would be the first offshore wind farm in the nation, the Providence company and its supporters in Rhode Island state government vowed that savings would come with future projects down the line.With a proposed agreement announced Thursday, they would fulfill that promise.Under the contract filed with the Public Utilities Commission, National Grid would pay Deepwater, now part of Danish-owned Orsted U.S. Offshore Wind, a flat rate over 20 years of 9.8 cents per kilowatt hour for power from its Revolution Wind Farm, a 400-megawatt project proposed in Rhode Island Sound.And critically, the deal is projected to save Rhode Island about $90 million in energy costs over the life of the contract, or about 50 cents per month for the typical electric customer in the state.The power purchase agreement proves that Rhode Island can develop renewable energy at an affordable cost, state energy commissioner Carol Grant said in an interview. “It’s not either/or. It’s not clean or affordable. It’s both,” she said.More: National Grid contract with Orsted would save customers $90 million over 20 years

Should this happen, you not only suffer a blow on your CU’s reputation but also accrue financial and legal jeopardy arising from non-compliance with federal regulations designed to protect such data.Cyber threats like the Equifax breach, which affected over 143 million people, have changed the way security is viewed in organizations. Security professionals concluded that this attack was an efficacious intelligence operation targeting to spy on U.S. citizens. The breach served as a wakeup call for the financial industry’s risk profile, highlighting the need for financial institutions to shift focus from risk mitigation within the institution to addressing risk profiles with a broader perspective and implement comprehensive security reaching beyond the walls of the institution.Credit unions and other financial institutions can use various levels of technology and compliances to counter cyber-attacks and ensure they are maintaining compliance and keeping customer data safe. Effective security checks to implement in your CU should be focused on data-at-rest defense, application encryption, tokenization, security event, information management systems and privileged user access management.

The Grand Forks International Baseball Tournament (GFI) is pleased to announce that for the first time in tournament history Australia will be coming to Grand Forks. The Geelong Baycats will be representing the Australian Baseball Federation. Their team manager, Nathan Holmes, said, “The Geelong Baycats are extremely proud to be offered an invitation to this prestigious tournament. Our players are thrilled at the opportunity of representing Australian baseball and the Geelong community on the international stage in Grand Forks.” Australia will take its place alongside other nations who have previously participated at the GFI. Taiwan, Japan, China, Russia and Mexico have all been here. However, one tournament record will be broken even before play begins on Aug. 31 – this will be the farthest any team has travelled to attend this tournament. Geelong is a city of almost 200,000 and is in Victoria, the second most populous state in Australia. Melbourne, 75 kilometres from Geelong, is its capital. The Geelong Baseball Club has been very active in developing the sport in Australia. This season the Baycats won their first ever Division One Club Championship and made their second appearance in the Championship series, losing a hotly contested final to the Waverly Wildcats. They were selected as the Club of the Year and Nathan Holmes received Coach of the Year honours. They have arguably the best playing facility in Australia. There are about 25 baseball players from Australia who have made it to the major leagues. The Geelong Baycats organization has long been producing young baseball talent and their most recognizable export to the big leagues in the United States is Graeme Lloyd. Lloyd pitched for 10 years while playing for 7 different clubs which included helping the New York Yankees to World Series titles in 1996 and ’98. Most fittingly he also played for both the Toronto Blue Jays and Montreal Expos during his pro career. His birthplace was Geelong, Victoria, Australia. And years later the team from his home town will participate in Canada’s richest invitational baseball tournament. In the letter confirming their attendance at the GFI they wrote, “We can’t wait for the umpire to call ‘Play Ball’ on our first game in Grand Forks. City of Grand Forks, province of BC and yes, even Canada, get ready, plan to be at the GFI August 31 to September 5 for the Aussies are coming!
