He has always denied the charge, insisting that his contacts with criminal circles were motivated solely by the desire to gather information for his reporting. At the time of his arrest, he was working on a story about the “Pink Panthers,” an international ring of jewel thieves, many of whom were from the former Yugoslavia. The delay will be further prolonged by a decision that all of the trial’s documents and all written records of the proceedings so far will have to be translated into Albanian because the new additional defendant is of Albanian origin, although he speaks Serbo-Croatian. The court authorities in Podgorica took this decision just a few days before the Peter Mackler Award ceremony.

Card breach at Kmart stores again creates credit union problems

The second credit-card breach in three years at Kmart has once again forced credit unions, and other financial institutions, to deal with the repercussions of potential fraud involving their accountholders.In the first of two-articles, security experts provide their take on the ramifications of card breaches on credit unions and businesses.Sears Holdings, the parent company of Kmart, confirmed it experienced another malware-based data breach of its card processing systems. The company did not reveal how many of its 735 Kmart locations saw signs of a breach, but said it did not affect online purchases.“Our Kmart store payment data systems were infected with a form of malicious code that was undetectable by current anti-virus systems and application controls,” Howard Riefs, a spokesman for Sears Holding, said in a statement. “Once aware of the new malicious code, we quickly removed it and contained the event. We are confident that our customers can safely use their credit and debit cards in our retail stores.” continue reading » 21SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr read more

Mud Snails, Seahorses and Lady Crabs

first_img‘Seine the Bay Day’ Reveals What Lies BeneathStory and photos by Joe ReynoldsWhat’s swimming in Raritan Bay and Sandy Hook Bay? It turns out quite a bit.Members of the all-volunteer Bayshore Regional Watershed Council conducted the sixth annual late spring “Seine the Bay Day” on June 4. The goal was to discover what fish, crabs and other aquatic creatures live along the edge of Raritan Bay and Sandy Hook Bay, the southern shore of New York Harbor.Surveys were conducted at four locations: Cliffwood Beach in Aberdeen Township, Conaskonck Point in Union Beach, near the mouth of Pews Creek in Port Monmouth, and near the mouth of Many Mind Creek in Atlantic Highlands.As in years past, a 50-foot-long seine net, a horizontal nylon net with buoys on top and weights on the bottom, was dragged through shallow waters and pulled towards the shore. All aquatic creatures were identified, cataloged, and returned to the estuary.The volunteers counted well over 600 crabs in total at all sites surveyed.By seining the shore, watershed members were able to show how local waters are an important nursery. Many of the critters found included young-of-year (YOY) fish – juvenile fish that have hatched out of eggs this past spring. Schools of young herring were found in abundance at Cliffwood Beach, Port Monmouth, and Atlantic Highlands. The herring hatched out of eggs in freshwater portions of the estuary several weeks ago, and are now swimming towards saltier waters with the start of warm weather.Over 20 juvenile winter flounder, a flatfish, were also found at Atlantic Highlands. They averaged in size between two to three inches long. Their high density near the mouth of Many Mind Creek suggests the sandy shoreline is a nursery. As populations of winter flounder continue to decline in the Northeast, it’s important to detect these areas.Other signs of new life included pregnant silversides or spearing, and clusters of snail eggs at all four sites. Exposed Horseshoe crabs were also found in wet sand at Cliffwood Beach.Seahorses were among the diverse marine life discovered by volunteers dragging a net through local waters on Seine the Bay Day.The most unique discovery of the day, however, was hauling in an adult seahorse at Port Monmouth. Yes, they really do exist in Sandy Hook Bay. The Northern lined seahorse is our native species. They often can be found clinging to sea grasses, pilings, or other floating objects in shallow waters foraging for tiny shellfish. Sadly, due to the loss of many sea grass beds, seahorse populations are lower around Sandy Hook Bay than in decades past.In addition to seining, volunteers surveyed the water for salinity, turbidity, and water temperature. Salinity readings were about 23 parts per thousand and water temperature averaged in the low to mid 70s F. Turbidity tests showed the water to be quite murky, especially at Atlantic Highlands, where volunteers could not even see their toes in less than one foot of water.No doubt, seining is a great way to gain an insight into the health of the near-shore environment where many people swim and enjoy the water. It provides a snap shot at what dwells along the edge of Sandy Hook Bay and Raritan Bay.Joe Reynolds is co-chair of the Bayshore Regional Watershed Council (www.restoreraritanbay.org) and a local naturalist. See the website for a full list of fish found at each site.last_img read more

One Reason You May be Fighting with Your Spouse About Money

first_imgBy Carol ChurchMoney is an incredibly common area of conflict for couples, and it can be a really serious one. Some research suggests that fighting over money is one of the most common causes of divorce, especially if the fights are particularly angry or intense. It’s hard, because learning to negotiate finances with another person can be really difficult. We all have our own styles of saving, budgeting, and spending, and what feels right to one person may feel really wrong to another. And in most families, at least some of the time, it can feel like there just isn’t enough money to go around.Perceptions of Spending Styles MatterSo how can partners reduces some of the destructive stress around finances? Surprisingly, one recent study found that some of the problem may be our perceptions about our spouses’ spending styles, more than anything else. In this research, men and women were asked how much financial conflict they experienced along with various other questions, such as how much they earned, how they thought their partner did with money, how much money stress they were under, and so on.When the researchers tallied the results, they found that the #1 predictor of financial conflict was men’s belief that their wives were “bad with” money, which negatively affected men and women both. It also wasn’t good when women thought their husbands were bad with money, though this was less serious.Most of us might have assumed that being under financial stress or not earning much money would predict money conflict the most. It did– but not as much as thinking that one’s spouse was an over-spender. Even couples with plenty of money and few financial worries suffered when someone believed their partner to be a money waster! This problem is especially tricky when you consider that “tightwads” and “spendthrifts” often tend to be attracted to each other and end up together.Image via Pixabay.com/CC0So, how can partners who are experiencing financial stress due to different money personalities (or even just the perception of different money personalities!) improve their situation? One way to handle this is to work on a realistic budget together that allows for each spouse’s hobbies, needs, and interests. If there is frequent conflict over purchases, it may be useful to create a small “fun money” account for each spouse that can be spent as each person sees fit, without spousal discussion. (If the saver wants to put the money in the bank, that’s fine too!) But aside from that account, make a rule not to keep financial secrets from each other. Sometimes false perceptions come about because one spouse suspects the other of “financial infidelity”—hiding spending—even when it isn’t true.Although it may be surprising to learn just how powerful our perceptions can be when it comes to financial conflict, it may also help to know that some of this issue may just be “in our minds.” Financial disagreements with a spouse or partner are difficult, but are something that can be overcome.Save the dates of our 3-part Family Finances Series which begins July 10 with a webinar on Separation & Single Parenting in the Military.References:Britt, S.L., et al.
