first_img During a ceremony to honor Colombian Army Colonel José Alejandro Forero on June 29, General Douglas Fraser, Commander, U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) expressed his thanks for the colonel’s year of service as one of the Partner Nation Liaison Officers. Col. Forero came to SOUTHCOM in the summer of 2011 with extensive experience in fighting the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), as a war college professor and with more than 27 years of service in his country’s Army. In Gral. Fraser’s words, during his tenure in SOUTHCOM, Col. Forero was instrumental in facilitating the communication between the Armed Forces of the United States and those of Colombia, and especially in sharing the necessary information to coordinate collaborative efforts in support of the regional fight against narcotrafficking and Countering Transnational Organized Crime. “José, Sandra, we’ve learned from you and benefitted from your knowledge of Colombia, from your willingness to learn how we work and to engage within our command,” said Gral. Fraser to the colonel and his wife. “Your dedication to our duties shed invaluable insight into the mutual understanding of our nations,” he added. Attendees not only included members of SOUTHCOM’s Joint Staff, but Brigadier General Leonardo Barrero, Director of Operations, Colombian Military, who has known Col. Forero for the last 27 years, was also present. “I am… we are truly saddened today to bid farewell to a family like SOUTHCOM, that has welcomed us with open hearts since our first day,” said Col. Forero for his part. He explained that as they made the trip to Miami one year ago, he and his family fretted feeling like strangers in a foreign country and far from home. “But it was not the case,” he stated. “We have made very good friends and felt like we fit right in…we have been introduced to great commanders and we depart very thankful of our time here.” “I will take back with me valuable lessons from this experience and share them with my peers to implement in our own development of new projects. My job was to bring the Armed Forces of the United States and Colombia closer together and am thankful to all of you who have made my duty a success,” he ended, as he received a Joint Service Meritorious Award for his service. SOUTHCOM established the Partner Nation Liaison Officer (PNLO) Program in 1998, with the focus of establishing links with U.S. partner nations in Central and South America and the Caribbean that would serve as a conduit to foster a better understanding of mission and tactics, facilitate the ability to integrate and synchronize operations, assist in the transfer of vital information, enhance mutual trust, and develop an increased level of teamwork. Congratulations on the very important work performed in our country by Comando Sur, also thank you for having built the Youth Comprehensive Care Center in Buenaventura; unfortunately that place is abandoned and run down, we are a group of young people who are demanding answers regarding its administration from the management, as we are worried that it will deteriorate without having been used. We hope to get in touch with you in order to send you pictures and better describe the situation of the establishment, we only wish you were in our city so that you could verify everything that I am telling you.

Doug’s responsibility at Allied includes overall responsibility for the Loan Servicing Products Division (LSPD).  LSPD encompasses all aspects of operations … Web: https://www.alliedsolutions.net Details When assessing risk mitigation, insurance monitoring is only one part of the equation. Insurance monitoring and collateral protection insurance (CPI) placement are powerful components of a comprehensive risk management solution that opens access to information in real-time that can be used to enrich existing data in order to make more informed decisions. For example, non-payment insurance cancellations are a leading indicator of other types of default. Data gathered in the process includes information beyond “just” the insurance – it includes, monitoring coverage, collateral location information, other contact information, etc. that can be used to understand the bigger picture.   As we emerge from the pandemic and look toward a return to normalcy, here are some of the questions you should be asking yourself about risk:What can you do to mitigate risks, whether known or not?  Do you know what risks are emerging in your portfolio?  Do you know how many states have published guidance or moratoriums on non-payment cancellations?  Do you know how many states have moratoriums on vehicle repossessions? Understanding Risk with Insurance MonitoringThe old-school notion of large-scale human intervention is a thing of the past when it comes to insurance monitoring. As we make our way through this pandemic, we will see an increased customer preference to communicate via non-paper methods utilizing available technologies.  This extends to the insurance monitoring process, with technology such as Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) making up over 80% of all insurance transactions received. For most portfolios, this means insurance status updates (e.g., Renewal / Non-Renewal, Cancel / Reinstatement) are received and processed without any intervention. For non-EDI transactions, digital automation can check one of the many insurance carrier websites for status and update records millions of times annually with no intervention. Since they are not dependent on U.S. Mail, or subject to potential delays, EDI and digital automation are preferred methods for obtaining insurance updates.    Even though technology plays an important role in obtaining and maintaining insurance information, physical mail does continue to be an important part of the process. However, technology such as Optical Character Recognition (OCR) can be utilized to ensure timely and accurate updates to insurance status.  Mitigating Risk with CPIThe monitoring process positively influences customers to maintain insurance as part of their loan agreement, but the reality is some customers will not maintain it. On average, in prime / near prime portfolios, 1-3 customers out of every 100 won’t maintain insurance. This is where CPI steps in as one of the best ways to protect you against financial loss. There are many coverage options and features available that all work to do the same thing – mitigate risk in your portfolio.    The good news is 97-99% of customers maintain their own insurance when a portfolio is actively monitored. For the remaining 1-3% it can feel like a challenging process – but it doesn’t have to be. An important aspect of monitoring and CPI placement is providing customer friendly methods to assist in resolving uninsured risks, especially when a CPI certificate is issued.  An important component of this is to provide a customer facing web portal that is intuitive and easy to interact with. It should offer as many options as possible to self-service with enough clarity so that the customer understands what is needed to resolve their issue. Features such as live chat, calling into a call center, or self service through interactive voice response (IVR) can enhance the customer experience. Manage Risk to be Customer AND Client FriendlyAs much as technology is deployed to create a low-touch, low-noise process for customers, the same can be said for financial institutions. System integrations and Payment Recalculation Modules (PRMs) play a vital role in automating the majority of the transactions within a program.  Also, as on the customer side, a dedicated self-service portal can allow institutions to address day to day transactions without the need for outreach.  Especially in our current pandemic environment and moving forward, having a comprehensive risk management solution can help beyond just monitoring insurance. These tools can be leveraged to help strengthen your business continuity program (BCP), more effectively monitor compliance and regulatory guidelines, and maximize repossession recoveries. There are many factors to consider when evaluating your existing and potential risk management programs. Insurance monitoring and CPI as part of a comprehensive risk management solution can both protect your portfolio AND provide data and insights not available through any other existing mechanisms.  You can simultaneously protect your portfolio and keep noise to a minimum – it’s the ultimate win-win.last_img read more

first_img Comments Before his next game, Carey prayed for Charli. He said he scored more than 30 points in his first game since he lost her, with Kansas assistant coach Norm Roberts watching. (The Jayhawks later offered him a scholarship.) He’s prayed before every game since. Before, he worked hard and trained on his own. But he’d laugh and joke at practice, make light of something funny or look away from the action on occasion, Carey said. Sometimes, he shortened workouts to hang out with friends. He was developing into one of the top players in his grade, piquing interest from Syracuse, Connecticut, Kansas and Miami. He may have fallen complacent. “He was lazy at one point,” Salmon said. “But around Charli’s death, it got personal. Maybe that’s when the light went off inside him. His senior year especially, his focus was another level.” UPDATED: Dec. 12, 2018 at 11:18 a.m.The lasting image is her smile. Jalen Carey will never see it again, but Charli Roberts’ unrestrained smile remains bottled up inside him. Every step on the court invokes a catalogue of emotions, not the least of which is his memory of that smile. That laugh. That love. She was a year older, but Charli knew how to relate to Carey. She knew what he liked. She taught him how to drive in her Teaneck, New Jersey backyard. She celebrated accomplishments big and small, usually followed with a dab. She was an older sister — something Carey, an only child, didn’t have. Now a freshman point guard for Syracuse (7-2), if there were a defining event in Carey’s life, it came Thursday, March 2, 2017. He was a junior at Immaculate Conception (New Jersey) High School. On the bus from his father’s apartment in New York City, on his way to school across the Hudson River, he got a phone call. Carey’s friend, Owen, had a strained voice. His sister, Charli, had diabetes, and she required an insulin pump attached to her hip. Overnight, it stopped working. Charli never woke up. Carey broke down in tears on the bus. Since that day, his life has carried extra meaning. He lost one of his closest friends, but he didn’t lose focus. He reconfigured the energy associated with her loss and ascended into a better version of himself. In the locker room before every game, he prays for Charli. He prays in her spirit, which he’s carried with him from his humble beginnings to Syracuse, where he hopes to be the future of the Orange backcourt and get a step closer to his NBA dreams. AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“She wanted me to be the best I could be in life,” Carey said last month. “She didn’t want me to just do one thing. She wanted me to do everything and be the best I could be.”***Charli Roberts died after the insulin pump she relied on stopped working overnight. Courtesy of Owen RobertsFor Carey, basketball became an escape from city life. He was raised in a public-housing building in Harlem, one building from the apartment in which SU associate head coach Adrian Autry grew up. Carey said he saw friends, kids he went to school with and teammates on youth basketball teams, fade away. He stopped seeing them at school and on the hardwood. So he prioritized basketball, which gave himself and his father, John, something to do and somewhere to be. Had John not challenged his son by sending him to school in New Jersey, Carey wouldn’t have met his inspiration. John wanted to force his son to adapt, so he enrolled him in Dwight-Englewood (New Jersey) School, to which Carey commuted between an hour and 90 minutes on a bus, from 112th and Lenox Avenue to northern New Jersey. Carey met Roberts, who also played basketball, at school one day in the ninth grade. Roberts invited Carey over to his house, where he met Roberts’ older sister, Charli. They hit it off. Together, Carey, Charli and Roberts went to movies, drove go-karts and played laser tag. They shot hoops, ate and did homework. Carey said he didn’t have to give a heads-up that he was on his way. He frequented dinners and stayed over some nights. Charli implored Carey: Don’t fall behind in school. From Charli, Carey saw a smile he wanted to emulate. He learned from her to cheer up others. He challenged himself to find a positive in any negative situation. He played as if another game may never come. “She was never down,” Carey said. “Always in good spirit, smiling or joking, helping someone who wasn’t having a good day. That’s what I try to do. If anything’s going wrong, someone else’s day could be going much worse.”Near the beginning of March, Charli picked up Carey near the George Washington Bridge. Roberts said they went to the Cheesecake Factory for a belated birthday dinner to celebrate the birthdays of Roberts (Feb. 17) and Charli (Feb. 18), who had just turned 18. And then came the day that left Carey without the person he called his sister. Less than 48 hours later, tears welled his eyes. ***Alexandra Moreo | Senior Staff PhotographerGrowing up, Charli dreamed of being a high school basketball coach. Roberts said the role would have fit her outlook toward life well. She wanted to mentor young girls and set them on a path for a productive life. She excelled in school. The day after she died, eight letters arrived at her family’s mailbox in Teaneck. Letters from Seton Hall, Temple, Hofstra and other colleges arrived. She had earned several full academic scholarships, Roberts said, though she never got the chance to read the letters. The unread letters leave Carey wondering, imagining the person she could have become and the lives she could have changed. He sees it as his best way to forge ahead: Live in her honor. “It became that he was living for two people, not just himself,” Roberts said. “When she died, Jalen thought to himself, ‘You really got to make it now.’” Carey and Roberts made a pact to live for Charli, although that didn’t make the weeks after her death any easier. After school, they sat in Roberts’ room in silence. Carey cried. When he thought about her too much, he prayed for her, talked about her, reminisced about her. When the thoughts overwhelmed him, they found refuge in the basketball gym. Even now, as a freshman in college nearly two years later, Carey calls Roberts when she’s been on his mind. Rather than make jokes at practice, Carey said he retooled his focus. No laughing. No more settling for jumpshots when he could take the ball to the rim. Charli was watching over him. He couldn’t mess around.CORRECTION: In a previous version of this post, Jalen Carey’s position was misstated. He is a member of the backcourt. The Daily Orange regrets this error.center_img Published on December 12, 2018 at 3:04 am Contact Matthew: [email protected] | @MatthewGut21 Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
