KastKing Pink Braided Fishing Line

Rosendin Electric’s Diya Peter Wins 2015 Women in Construction Award

Constructech Recognizes Operations Applications Team Leader for Her Role in Bringing New Technology to All Rosendin Electric Regions.

Rosendin Electric

San Jose, CA, USA (September 22, 2015) — Rosendin Electric, one of the nation’s largest private electrical contractors and an employee-owned company, is proud to announce that Diya Peter, Operations Applications Lead for the company, has been recognized by Constructech Magazine with a 2015 Women In Construction Award. The Award is presented each year to the most influential women shaping the construction industry.

Ms. Peter was selected as one of a select group of women who are having an impact on construction. In her role as Operations Applications Lead, Ms. Peter has been responsible for the design, development, and deployment of all applications used by Rosendin Electric’s Field and Operations team. Much of her responsibility includes implementing new technology to Rosendin Electric’s regional offices as well as field training. Most recently, she has been implementing a new time-tracking application designed for field payroll and time management, and deploying construction project management platforms companywide.

“Diya is an evangelist for new ideas and new technologies and has been instrumental in bringing the latest applications to the field,” said Sam Lamonica, CIO of Rosendin Electric. “Her experience and passion have been instrumental in gaining the confidence of our field personnel and regional managers and getting them to embrace the latest technology tools.”

Ms. Peter has more than seven years of experience in developing and managing IT systems for the construction industry and she serves as a mentor to other women, drawing from her extensive experience in IT and construction to counsel them on future career opportunities. She is also active with an industry-related CIO Scholarship Fund, which has been tasked with starting a Young Professionals Group to support MIS students.

“I am honored to receive a Women in Construction Award,” said Ms. Peter. “Women are still a minority in the construction industry, and this award not only speaks to the value of my contribution, but it honors all of the women who are changing the face of construction.”

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, women only make up 8.9 percent of the construction workforce, and even a smaller percentage contributes to construction technology. Constructech’s Women in Construction awards honor those women who are not only contributors to the construction industry, but also whose passion and leadership are shaping the future of construction.

Monika Mori Named as the Gallery’s New Featured Artist

Light Space & Time Logo

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is pleased to announce that contemporary artist Monika Mori is the gallery’s newest featured artist.

Monika Mori - Artist Showcase

Jupiter, FL, USA (September 19, 2015) — Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is pleased to announce that contemporary artist Monika Mori is the gallery’s newest featured artist. She will now be presented and promoted in the gallery’s Artist Showcase for the next 30 days.

Monika Mori, a/k/a MOO, was born in 1960 in Moedling, Austria. She had studies in Fine Art, amplified her scope as an artist by formal training courses and workshops throughout Europe and the United States.

The Austrian contemporary multimedia artist creates playful moody paintings, drawings and collages celebrating experiences and emotions animated by dazzling colors or strictly black and white. Her early works are highly expressive – she has always wanted the world to hear what she has to say, and these artistic communications embody her emotions, experiences and her delight at the interaction with color. For Mori, color is liberating.

In her series “Mystical Garden” which started in 2012 and found its renaissance this year, she creates flowers in a seemingly easy style. These drawings are a moral suasion to protect nature instead of manipulating seeds. It is her great concern that people relearn to think independently and to act accordingly. She thinks that mankind had become lazy, likes to have regulations in all areas so that they can make others responsible.

Mori’s work has been exhibited worldwide and is included in public and private collections around the globe. Her website http://www.mori-art.at.

Market Rates Insight Introduces FeeBuilder, an Interactive Fees Database to Help Financial Institutions Optimize Fee Revenue

New National Fee Tracking Database Gives Banks and Credit Unions Live Competitive Information on Retail Deposit Fees.

Market Rates Insight

San Anselmo, CA, USA — Market Rates Insight, Inc., the leader in financial services pricing intelligence for deposits, personal loans, mortgages, and fees, today announced the launch of FeeBuilder™, the first live retail deposit fees database for financial institutions (FIs). FeeBuilder is a subscription-based, interactive, decision-support fees database that helps financial institutions (FIs) make up-to-the-moment observations about retail FI deposit fees nationwide. The latest FDIC data shows that consumer overdraft charges, periodic maintenance charges, and ATM fees alone make up more than 50 percent of service charges on deposit accounts. FeeBuilder provides a competitive benchmark for FIs to optimize competitive deposit account fees instantly, and to answer off-cycle fee questions.

FeeBuilder was designed to help FI decision-making for competitive deposit fees. It provides instant peer-to-peer analyses at the national, state, and local level with comprehensive competitive fee data on checking, savings, money market accounts, and certificates of deposit. FeeBuilder covers overdraft, non-sufficient funds (NSF), monthly service fees, ATM fees, and wire transfer. Users can segment by product, geographic market, and by FI. FeeBuilder includes access to deposit fees at 95 percent of banks with over $10 billion in assets, 98 percent of credit unions with more than $1 billion, and all significant direct banks. With 1,700 FIs and growing, this database is essential for FIs that depend on deposit fee revenue, and it is the first and only fees tracking service to offer daily updates for immediate decision support.

With interest rates still at record lows, FIs are increasingly dependent on deposit fees for revenue. In fact, overdraft fees have become a primary source of revenue, accounting for nearly $32 billion in 2013. Very soon, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) will issue new overdraft guidelines that will affect some fee revenue.

“FI margin squeeze is real. Banks and credit unions are facing mounting market and regulatory pressures at a time when the velocity of change and demands for transparency are overwhelming,” said Rick Barham, founder and CEO of Market Rates Insight. “It’s more important than ever to be able to have a fast and accurate fees benchmark. Aligning your deposit fees with live market data not only helps you keep pace with the competition, but it also means you aren’t leaving potential revenue on the table. FeeBuilder helps our clients stay one step ahead, and it answers their most pressing questions.”

FeeBuilder is essential for executives who need to set deposit fees or develop new financial products. FeeBuilder can be applied in a number of ways:

1. FeeBuilder answers off-cycle questions about fees without the usual delay of waiting for a custom fee study.
2. FeeBuilder helps FIs locate alternative revenue sources to Overdraft.
3. FeeBuilder provides a competitive benchmark for current and new products.
4. FeeBuilder reveals market trends by geography, product category, and institution.
5. FeeBuilder shows where the CFPB is exerting influence on OD with live market data.
6. FeeBuilder also is valuable for business development, opening new markets, and M&A strategies.

FeeBuilder is delivered as a quarterly report and on-demand. The data is structured as a comprehensive spreadsheet that provides snapshots that can be manipulated for inclusion in reports, projections, and presentations.

Included with the FeeBuilder subscription is a quarterly bonus look at the data via TrendSpotter, showing fee changes highlighted by product category or institution. TrendSpotter quickly reveals how the industry is responding to consumer and regulatory pressure regarding fees, and it shows accumulated changes by fee at the national level.
