Amazon Bank: When Will Banking's Worst Nightmare Come True?
QUOTE Traditional banking providers are definitely vulnerable. In a Bain & Company survey of more than 133,000 banking customers in 22 countries, consumers said they trust Amazon and PayPal with their money nearly as much as their banking provider. Some 55% of U.S. consumers said they are open to buying financial products from established tech firms. And 73% of Millennials said they would be more excited about a new financial offering from the likes of Amazon, Google, Paypal or Square than from their bank.

An irreplaceable distiller of ideas: Ron Tandberg mourned by admirers
"People loved his succinctness. He was pithy, he was right to the point. It didn't matter what you'd think about his particular political stance on the subject, the fact was, no one ever misunderstood where Ron stood."

He said there was a "wonderful time" for more than 10 years from 1975, when Spooner, Tandberg, Peter Nicholson and Michael Leunig worked in one room, with other desks reserved for Arthur Horner and Bruce Petty when they came in.

"I rang Ron two weeks ago, to say how sorry I was to hear [of his illness], and we both were reflecting on the fact that we had a wonderful time."

Islamwissenschaften als Kampfsport: Eine französische Debatte über die Ursachen dschihadistischer Gewalt
24 Juni 2016
Von Dr. Leyla Dakhli
Die Frage nach den Ursachen religiös motivierter Gewalt ist in Medien und Politik allgegenwärtig – dies gilt für Frankreich genauso wie für Deutschland. Welche Rolle spielt der Islam, welche Bedeutung haben soziale Konflikte? Und welche Verantwortung trägt die europäische Politik in der Region? Die Debatte wird in Frankreich besonders kontrovers geführt, die Argumente sind allerdings auch für den hiesigen Kontext aufschlussreich. Leyla Dakhli gibt einen Überblick über die Kontroverse und die unterschiedlichen Erklärungen, die von prominenten „Islamologen“ vorgetragen werden. In Frankreich gilt die Islamologie als Teil der Kultur- und Sozialwissenschaften, die sich mit der Geschichte, Kultur und Politik des Islams und muslimischer Gesellschaften beschäftigt.

Blockchain Banking Startup BABB Names New CIO | PYMNTS.com
QUOTE Blockchain-based challenger bank BABB — which stands for Bank Account-Based Blockchain — has hired a new CIO. The company said Thursday (Jan. 4) that bank technology veteran Paul Johnson will take up the position. Johnson previously served as chief of another U.K. challenger bank Aldermore, at which he oversaw its IPO in 2015. BABB is planing its own initial coin offering (ICO) later this month. “I can only see blockchain technology as the next step in this evolution of payments and asset transfer in the future,” he said in a statement announcing his position at BABB. “The BABB proposition highlights this extremely well with the ‘everyone is a bank’ concept, and I am excited to be joining the team to build this platform.”
