New email-based EMV education tool launched

first_imgOver the past few months, I’ve written about the lack of robust EMV chip card education among merchants and consumers. As the U.S. payments industry continues its EMV migration, data consistently indicates a gap between what retailers and consumers need to know about EMV chip cards and what they actually know about them.The Payments Security Task Force and the EMV Migration Forum hope to close (if not eliminate) that gap. To that end, the two payments associations teamed up to create the CHIP IN Education Initiative, which educates consumers and merchants about new EMV-enabled cards. Through CHIP IN, individuals can sign-up to receive EMV-related examples of social media posts and hashtags, educational downloads, visual aids, training guides and media interview tips via email. Participants can then share these materials with their own communities to educate a broader sector on EMV basics. Although the CHIP IN initiative has concluded, the mailings are still available to be forwarded from their website.The CHIP IN materials are to be used in conjunction with GoChipCard.com, a website designed by both organizations to provide consumers, merchants and financial institutions with information on EMV chip cards and their security features. continue reading » 4SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

first_imgArsenal’s provisional fixtures for Premier League restart announced Comment The games will be played behind closed doors, but Premier League chief executive Richard Masters is hoping fans will be back in attendance soon.‘No one knows when matches will move away from the behind-closed-doors model and it is right to have contingency plans in place,’ Masters told Sky Sports.‘But there is optimism at the Premier League and at clubs that we will see fans back in the stadiums next season and it may happen on a phased basis.‘Hopefully it will be a huge morale boost and that is what we’ve been working towards.‘We’ve got some incredible fans in this country and we all know the Premier League as we know and love it won’t be fully back until we have fans back through the turnstiles.‘Getting it back on our TV screens for people to enjoy will hopefully give the whole country a boost.’MORE: Ian Wright was late for training ‘every single day’ at Arsenal, claims Tony AdamsMORE: Gary Neville highlights Arsenal’s big mistake with Pierre-Emerick AubameyangFollow Metro Sport across our social channels, on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.For more stories like this, check our sport page.

Beat writers predict Syracuse-UConn national championship game

first_imgFourth-seeded Syracuse (30-7, 13-3 Atlantic Coast) advanced to the national championship game after an 80-59 win over No. 7 seed Washington on Sunday night. Up next is Connecticut (37-0, 18-0 American Athletic) with a national title on the line.Here is how our beat writers think the game will play out.Connor GrossmanConnecticut 83, Syracuse 64Second fiddleSyracuse’s dream season has improbably rolled into the season’s final day. As remarkable of a run the program has had in a postseason it hadn’t won two games in before this year, that won’t be Tuesday night’s biggest storyline. Nothing is going to outshine the luster of three-time defending champion UConn, a team that has lost one game in the last 1,119 days. One. Breanna Stewart, a central New York product, is lined up to sweep a career of four national championships, and possibly four tournament Most Outstanding Player  awards if she performs to her capabilities in the final game of her illustrious career. Syracuse can do its best to set its press and score in transition, and off turnovers. It’s made it further than 348 other Division I teams working off its blueprint. But even that can’t stand between Stewart, head coach Geno Auriemma and Connecticut from another title.Jon MettusAdvertisementThis is placeholder textConnecticut 79, Syracuse 55Close enoughSyracuse has already achieved basically the best end to a season it could have possibly hoped for. This run of 17 games in which the Orange has lost just once was improbably, but continuing it with a win over Connecticut in the national championship would be a miracle. UConn is too good at every position — especially its three-headed monster of Moriah Jefferson, Morgan Tuck and Stewart, which are all considered to be WNBA-level talents. Syracuse is going to be outmatched in nearly every aspect of the game, but so has everyone else that the Huskies have played. Connecticut is going to make history with its fourth national championship in a row. But Syracuse earned the right to be on the court at the same time.Paul SchwedelsonConnecticut 71, Syracuse 58No shameThe magic carpet ride for Syracuse finally comes to an end, but there’s no shame in losing to the undefeated three-time defending national champions. Not a single one of UConn’s games this season has been within single digits and the streak continues on Tuesday night. The Huskies are so dangerous because even without one or two top players, they can still dominate. Three-time NCAA tournament Most Outstanding Player Stewart only scored two first-half points in the semifinal and UConn still led by 21 at halftime. Tuck, Jefferson and Stewart, the North Syracuse native, each end their careers the only way they know how, with a national championship, and they leave college with four title rings.
