Hey, did you hear?

The Toronto Hydro is making some changes at 14 Carlton Street! Part of these changes will be that TEUCU will be
moving to a new location! Our branch will be moving from the mezzanine level to the lobby. We will still operate under the same hours as before and have the same contact information, but there will be a new addition. We are happy to announce the arrival of an ATM at the 14 Carlton location! This new ATM is scheduled to be fully operational in the fall and will be
replacing cash services due to new security issues for staff and members. Although we will do our best to co-ordinate the move with the delivery of the new ATM, there may be a period of time where cash is temporarily unavailable at our 14 Carlton Street location. Please remember that your TEUCU ATM/debit card will work at hundreds of locations throughout the city, surcharge free. If you need a list of ATM locations or would like more information on how to use the cash back service offered by many retailers please call us or you can look online on our website at www.teucu.com.
Please keep an eye on our blog throughout the upcoming weeks
for more updates on the big move!

Rice Patterns!

Rice farmers in Japan create wonderful works of art by planting different varieties of rice in patterns. The 2009 crop has been photographed and can be seen by everyone -not just airplanes! This rendering of Napoleon is near the town hall in the village of Inakadate in Aomori prefecture. See more at Pink Tentacle.

Pepper-spray defence means South Africa robbers face loss of balance at cash machines

Cash machines offer an ever-growing menu of services beyond merely dispensing money. For tampering criminals, this now includes a squirt of pepper spray in the face .

The extreme measure is the latest in South Africa’s escalating war against armed robbers who target banks and cash delivery vans. The number of cash machines blown up with explosives has risen from 54 in 2006 to 387 in 2007 and nearly 500 last year.

The technology uses cameras to detect people tampering with the card slots. Another machine then ejects pepper spray to stun the culprit while police response teams race to the scene.

But the mechanism backfired in one incident last week when pepper spray was inadvertently inhaled by three technicians who required treatment from paramedics.
