Reading Cooperative Bank Raises Employee Starting Wage To 15

first_img(NOTE: Reading Cooperative Bank has two locations in Wilmington — 230 Lowell Street and 352 Middlesex Avenue.)READING, MA — Reading Cooperative Bank (RCB) recently announced that it would be increasing the minimum wage for all Bank employees to $15 per hour. The decision was announced at RCB’s year-end employee meeting, where President & CEO Julie Thurlow spoke to the company about the Board of Directors’ plan to help full-and-part-time employees struggling with the rising cost of living in Massachusetts.“We just felt like it was the right thing to do,” Thurlow responded when asked about the move. “We understand that one size does not fit all, and we would never presume that every company can afford to take such measures. The Bank still strongly believes that matters such as this should remain in the hands of individuals, not government.”Thurlow went on to elaborate about the plight of small businesses in the area: “As much as we strive to support workers who just want to make a living wage, we are certainly cognizant of the limitations that our local small business owners face daily and respect the decisions they have to make.”(NOTE: The above press release is from Reading Cooperative Bank.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Hulu tops 25 million subscribers but still trails Netflix by miles

first_img Share your voice Post a comment 0 Tags TV and Movies Digital Media Hulu has been adding subscribers but remains much smaller than rival Netflix.   Sarah Tew/CNET Hulu surpassed 25 million total subscribers across all products in 2018, the company said Tuesday, an increase of 8 million from a year earlier. Like all other subscription streaming video services, Hulu is still far behind global leader Netflix, which had 137 million members worldwide at the end of September. But Hulu noted its milestone means it has more video customers than even the biggest cable and satellite TV companies in the US, which includes Comcast. The cable giant, which incidentally is one of Hulu’s parents, had 21 million residential TV customers at the end of September. (Awkward… )Although smaller than Netflix, Hulu was one of the vanguards of streaming television. As Netflix has secured its dominance, Hulu has grappled with a crowd of rivals to be one of the other services most consumers sign up for. That competition is set to only grow. Traditional Hollywood giants like Disney, Time Warner and others plan to launch their own versions of Netflix this year.In its end-of-year recap, Hulu said it’s the only service of its kind that has full seasons of 80 percent of the shows nominated for Emmys last year. And people are binge-watching there, too. For Hulu’s top 100 shows, more than half of all viewing sessions were for three or more episodes of the same series.Among other stats, Hulu said average time spent per subscriber each month increased 20 percent last year, and it said viewers who subscribe to both its on-demand service and its live-TV offering spend half of their time watching that on-demand or recorded programming. Hulu said it leaned in to that behavior by investing “significantly” in exclusive programming and improving its streaming technology. It reduced buffering by 90 percent, it said. Its advertising revenue hit a new high of $1.5 billion in 2018, up more than 45 percent. The median age of a Hulu viewer is 32, and the average annual household income was $93,000.Correction, 12:11 p.m. PT: This story initially misstated the year that Hulu’s advertising revenue hit a new high.

Cordcutters delight The AirTV is just 4999 today

Tacklife Still lighting candles with matches? Go back to the 1800s, grandma! For a limited time, Red Baby AI (via Amazon) has the Tacklife ELY01 rechargeable arc lighter for just $6.36 with promo code GZ2Y24C4. That’s even less than the Father’s Day deal from last month. The lighter normally runs $13.See it at AmazonThis thing blows matches and propane lighters out of the water. For starters, it has a gooseneck, so it can light where you need it to light. It’s windproof, because there’s no actual flame to blow out. And it won’t ever run out of propane, because it relies on a rechargeable battery that’s good for up to 1,000 uses (!) between charges.The only caveat: If you use it to light candles, wax can get on the tip, which can prevent the arc from lightning. Just scrape off the wax with your thumbnail and you should be back in business.CNET’s Cheapskate scours the web for great deals on PCs, phones, gadgets and much more.

A sound bar for Sonos disciples Now playing: Watch this: Tags Preview • The Sonos Playbar is official: A sleek sound bar that streams all your music for $700 CNET may get a commission from retail offers. Sonos Playbar At just $50 refurbished, the AirTV is one of the cheapest ways to keep local TV channels. And no monthly fees! AirTV Update, July 11: The refurb AirTV is sold out at the $50 price. You can pick up a new AirTV at Amazon for $80 ($40 off), or you can check out the similar Amazon Fire TV Recast for $130 ($100 off). That latter product costs more — and only works with a Fire TV streamer — but it includes a built-in 500GB DVR. Like the AirTV, however, it requires no monthly fees.Read the Air TV review | Read the Fire TV Recast reviewFor many a cable TV cord-cutter, local channels are the final piece of the puzzle. How can you continue to watch (or record) those stations without piling on more monthly fees and defeating the whole point of cutting the cord?Here’s how: Today only, and while supplies last, Woot has the refurbished AirTV dual-tuner local-channel streaming box for $49.99, with free shipping for Amazon Prime subscribers. (Others pay $5.)See it at WootEverything you need to know about this product, you can find in CNET’s AirTV review. However, allow me to sum up: Connect an antenna to the AirTV box, then link the box to your Wi-Fi network (or plug it into your router’s Ethernet port). Presto! Now you can watch live local channels via your streaming devices (Fire TV, Roku and so on) and mobile devices (even if you’re away from home).Better still, the AirTV can pull DVR duty, though it’s BYO USB hard drive. If you have an extra one lying around, great. If not, here’s a Toshiba Canvia 1TB drive for just $49. (My point: Adding your own storage is extremely affordable.)Although the box was “built for SlingTV,” you definitely don’t need a SlingTV subscription. If you have one, those channels will populate the program guide alongside your local ones, which is nice. Even nicer? There’s no monthly fee for AirTV’s program guide.So, yeah, you’re in for $50 for the box. And if you already have an antenna and hard drive, you’re done. The latter is optional, and here’s an indoor HD antenna for just $17.Cord-cutting solutions don’t get much cheaper than this. Even if Woot’s supply of refurbs runs out, the AirTV is quite reasonable at $79.99.If you’ve used one and have thoughts to share, hit the comments section!Bonus deal: The Sonos Playbar drops to $549 (save $150)Sonos Playbar Jason Jenkins/CNET Speaking of refurbished gear for your TV viewing pleasure, the Sonos Playbar sound bar normally sells for $699, but for a limited time, you can get a refurb Playbar for $549. That’s a rare deal and one of the biggest discounts I can recall seeing on this speaker.See it at SonosEverything you need to know about it, you can learn in CNET’s Sonos Playbar review. (Wow, did this thing really come out way back in 2014?)One thing worth adding: All refurbished Sonos gear is guaranteed to be good as new, right down to the full one-year warranty. Sure, at $549 the Playbar is still a pricey addition to a home theater — but at least it’s a little less outrageous.

Can Indian opener KL Rahul break Pakistani cricketer Babar Azams record in

first_imgPandya and Rahul in England.Gareth Copley/Getty ImagesIndian opener KL Rahul is on the verge of achieving a milestone of becoming the fastest to score 1000 runs in T20Is and breaking Pakistani cricketer Babar Azam’s record when Team India face West Indies on Saturday, August 3. Azam achieved this feat in 26 innings.The part-time wicket-keeper and frontline batsman, who is quite comfortable in this format of the game, is just 121 runs short of becoming the seventh Indian to score 1000 runs in T20 internationals. If he scores the required number of runs in Saturday’s clash, then he will break the record of Babar Azam as he will achieve the feat in 25 innings. Indian skipper Virat Kohli reached the milestone after playing 27 innings also.It is not an easy task for the Karnataka born player as scoring a ton in a T20 match is never easy. But the 27-years old right-hander already has three centuries in T20 matches out of which two have been scored for Team India.But, looking at his current form, it will not be that easy for the opener to play such a massive innings. He was in mixed form through the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Rahul got starts in many of the matches but failed to convert them to big scores except on one occassion when he scored a century against Sri Lanka. Team India sporting the special cap. Robert Cianflone/Getty ImagesIndia exited the World Cup after facing defeat at the hands of New Zealand by 18 runs.

the first English club to lose in the Champions League this season with a ruthless 3-0 rout by AS Roma Conte lamented that the English champions who would have advanced to the last 16 with a win "lacked everything" after a match where they went a goal down after 38 seconds the first of a Stephan El Shaarawy double El Shaarawy made it 2-0 after 36 minutes when ex-Roma defender Antonio Rudiger failed to control Radja Nainggolan’s long ball forward Argentine Diego Perotti scored the third midway through the second half before missing a chance for a fourth Chelsea coach Antonio Conte looking solemn after the matcha against AS Roma AP "Roma proved to have more hunger more desire more will to fight and to beat us We lacked everything" complained Conte "If we think because our name is Chelsea the opponent is fearful this is not the right way We must have a great desire in every game" The former Italy and Juventus boss took over Chelsea in 2016 winning the Premier League title in his first season But this campaign they are trailing nine points behind leaders Manchester City "What I am most disappointed about is the performance in the second half I believe in the first half we played well" he continued "We then created many chances but we weren’t clinical or ruthless enough to convert them "There is great disappointment for our second half because I didn’t see positive things it was really bad for a team like us" Hunger missing Chelsea can still qualify from Group C as Atletico Madrid were held 1-1 by Qarabag in Madrid Conte’s side are four points above third-placed

the Stadio Olympico El Shaarawy got the Roma party going But despite the perfect start Roma did not have it all their own way as three early chances fell to Eden Hazard who was by far the most dangerous Chelsea player The visitors had two more opportunities before the break from Marcos Alonso and Tiemoue Bakayoko after the hosts had already pulled clear Di Francesco hailed an impressive team performance "We’ve shown that we’re an improving side We mustn’t stop now though We have to push on from here "We need to take this spirit with us in all competitions across the campaign and if
