Open banking: User experience over technology

first_img continue reading » What is it? There’s a lot of chatter about ‘Open Banking’ in the UK, a new world where our banks and other regulated organisations will be able to share, access and orchestrate our banking information to help us make better product decisions, save money and reduce unnecessary administration.Just as importantly, it is aimed to dilute the control of the major banking players and allow smaller challenger banks and other 3rd party financial organisations to compete and offer innovative solutions.Opening Banking has been live since the first half of 2018 and in January 2019 alone, over 23m successful Open banking API calls were made, representing around 30% growth over the previous month.However, a survey from consumer group Which? found that 92% of respondents hadn’t even heard of it. Other polls suggest people find the idea of data sharing scary. ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Arrest made in city tree torching

first_imgGLENDALE – Police on Wednesday said they arrested “the Grinch” who set fire to a 30-foot Christmas tree in a plaza behind City Hall because he was burned up about a parking ticket. Bruce Morrison, 52, of Glendale allegedly used an accelerant to set fire to the city’s Christmas tree Friday. The tree, which had been imported from the Pacific Northwest, had to be removed after limbs, electrical fixtures and decorations were destroyed. Glendale police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said city workers spend a lot of time each year decorating the tree.

A witness saw Morrison run away from the burning tree and described the blue pickup truck he used to flee the area, police said. When information on the arson attack was later broadcast to police units, an officer thought the vehicle description sounded like a truck she had recently left a parking ticket on while it was parked in a red zone near City Hall. The owner was traced through the license plate information the officer took down and Morrison was arrested Wednesday. He was booked on suspicion of arson and was being held in lieu of $50,000 bail. City Councilman Ara Najarian was the master of ceremonies when the Christmas tree was lit with electric lights in early December. His two young sons flipped the switch to light the tree. “It was a very large tree, it was nicely decorated and it was the focal point … of our Christmas celebrations for the city,” Najarian said. “You couldn’t miss it.” The damage to the decorations and lighting on the tree are estimated at more than $4,000, but the value of the tree itself was not available Wednesday. The parking ticket would have cost Morrison about $45. “Unfortunately, he got a parking ticket, he was upset with the city,” Lorenz said. “Why he would be upset with the city because he parked in a red zone nobody knows.” Alex Dobuzinskis, (818) 546-3304 [email protected] 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
