What is the impact of the NCUA’s risk-based capital rule?

first_imgLast month, the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) approved the long-awaited final rule on risk-based capital requirements for credit unions. The rule aims to reduce the possibility of high-risk credit unions exhausting their capital and causing systemic losses, which all federally insured credit unions would have to cover for through the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF).According to Debbie Matz, NCUA Board Chairman, the new rule fulfills the NCUA’s obligations under the Federal Credit Union Act and targets high-risk, outlier credit unions that have the potential to contribute substantial losses to the NCUSIF. “The Federal Credit Union Act requires NCUA to update its risk-based capital standards to be comparable with the federal banking agencies,” Matz added.The rule applies only to federally-insured, natural-person credit unions with more than $100 million in assets. This means that more than three-quarters of the nation’s credit unions are exempt from the rule. To match risk-based capital rule implementations of other federal banking agencies, the NCUA rule will become effective on January 1, 2019.If the rule were to become effective today, only 16 of the 1,489 credit unions impacted by the rule would fall into a lower capital category, according to Matz. Prior to the effective date, those 16 credit unions will need to reduce the risk on their balance sheets, raise capital to cover the risks or employ some combination of reducing risk and raising capital. continue reading » 5SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

The Joule Thief uses cans as a battery power

first_img Genome Engineering Could Provide New Method of Creating Diesel Culhane is taking his innovation to Nepal first. The system, which would rely on the aluminum cans left by excess tourist activity. The plans involve setting up both solar and biogas plants that will run on this technology. The cans initially will be filled with water and wood ash, which allows it to collect potassium hydroxide. Over time the system will use simple electrodes to set up batteries.Joule Thief video. More information: Explore further (PhysOrg.com) — Thanks to a child’s toy and the mind of T.H Culhane visitors to the explorer’s symposium at the National Geographic headquarters got to take a look at how the world of aluminum cans we use every day can be used to power batteries. The project began, as many things do, with a video on YouTube. In this video a child uses aluminum cans to make a very small and simple battery. This document is subject to copyright.

The joule thief can be used with any cold beverage holder, when it is done for a child’s experiment. The joule thief uses a weak charge in order to create and then convert the power from the can into real power that can be used in a variety of different applications. In this case the power was used to convert a dead AA battery. That battery was able to yields 1.2 volts of power that is then sent to a 3 volt LED light. It is able to power the light with its energy savings. last_img read more
