The membership growth of credit unions grew by 3.6 percent in 2016 according to the Credit Union National Association estimates. Currently, there are more than 7,000 credit unions in the United States of America. Unlike other financial institutions, credit unions operate on the simple principle of cooperatives. Its members are the major investors hence any profit realized through loan interests are shared among the members.

The profits realized through credit unions are solely used to enhance the financial lives of its members. Most people tend to confuse credit unions with other financial institutions such as banks. Although they offer the same services as banks, there is a clear distinction between the two when it comes to the manner in which credit unions are managed. Some of the loan products offered by these institutions include home equity loans, vehicle loans, credit cards, and mortgages. Some of the credit unions also offer health savings accounts.

The credit unions are insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) which is a government-backed agency. For you to become a member of a credit union, you will be required to initiate an initial deposit ranging from $5 to $50 with your preferred credit union.

Dark Dining is the subject on the newest segment from “Informed”, hosted by Rob Lowe. 

The first instance of dark dining occurred in Paris in 1997, and was setup by Michel Reilhac with the name “Le gout du noir”. It wasn’t until 1999 that the first permanent dark dining restaurant was established in Zurich, Switzerland. Dark dining consists of a meal where the patrons are in complete darkness and can’t see anything that they are eating. The idea behind this unique experience is that without the visual component of the meal, other senses will be heightened and increase gastronomic pleasure. Most dark dining restaurants are set up in such a way that there is absolutely no light allowed, even from cell phones or cameras, while others simply blindfold the patrons prior to the beginning of the meal. In many cases restaurants will employ blind or visually impaired servers because they have the skills to function well without sight.

Dark dining is an experience that has gained popularity on a global scale since its start 20 years ago. “Informed”, a series distributed to Public Television PBS Member stations, is hosted by Rob Lowe.

“Informed”, hosted by Hollywood star Rob Lowe, is focussing its attention on Public Transportation in the series’ newest segment

Public transportation is a vital part of what makes a major city thrive and prosper. In an effort to keep small city streets clear of traffic most large cities employ a large system of public transportation to allow commuters to navigate the busy streets. The majority of cities employ a system of underground and above ground train systems in an effort to remove as much congestion from roads as possible. Public transportation, such as high speed trains, is also utilized to connect major cities to one another. One problem that public transportation faces is getting the proper funding to maintain the systems. Many cities have older transportation systems that don’t have the proper funds to keep them maintained properly. The use of a public system of transportation also saves commuters who travel long distances a significant amount of money over time.

This episode from “Informed” will be coming to a Public Television PBS Member station available to you within the coming weeks.
