Listen To Bob Dylan’s Brand New Album, ‘Fallen Angels,’ Streaming In Full

first_imgLegendary folkster Bob Dylan returns with his 37th studio album, Fallen Angels, on May 20th. The album serves as a follow-up to 2015’s Shadows In The Night, which sees Dylan covering some of the lesser-known songs of Frank Sinatra’s catalog. The new release continues down that trend, with Dylan picking out favorites from The Great American Songbook for the release. Dylan’s voice has never been perfect, and at 74-years-old, it’s more about his ability to tell a story than actually sing. Still, he captures the essence of these forgotten songs with an enthusiasm, reeling in a listener and teaching some sort of folk lesson.In advance of the new release, Fallen Angels is streaming in full via NPR’s First Listen. Tune in below:Dylan is also featured on the Desert Trip lineup, with The Who, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Neil Young, and Roger Waters. Check out the latest update on that festival here.last_img read more

Your consumers: Smart strategies for providing short-term liquidity

first_imgAccording to the Pew Research Center, about half of lower-income Americans report household job or wage loss due to COVID-19. Young adults were disproportionately at risk of job losses from COVID-19, as were the least educated and those working low-wage jobs—common demographics of workers in high-risk industries, such as restaurants/bars and other service sectors such as transportation, retail, personal care, arts & entertainment, childcare and many others.Other common characteristics of these consumers which worsen their financial situation:They often don’t receive benefits such as paid leave.They do not have the option to work remotely.Many do not have emergency funds.Many do not have access to liquidity to pay their bills. In fact, under a traditional credit scoring system, many of these workers would not qualify for loans or other types of short-term credit.They often have no choice but to turn to high-priced payday loans.Although federal regulators have repeatedly urged credit unions to offer more favorable alternatives to high-priced loans—particularly on the heels of COVID-19, the prevalence of predatory lending continues, often trapping consumers in endless cycles of payday loan debt. Give your members a better way, or they WILL stray.  In Velocity Solutions’ free white paper, we’ll discuss how the current economic crisis is affecting consumers’ financial behavior, and various strategies and options for providing short-term liquidity to your members in a time when they need your support more than ever.For more information, download our free white paper, Part IV of Velocity Solutions’ Credit Union Recovery Series:  Your Consumers: Smart Strategies for Providing Short-Term Liquidity. 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
