KUALA LUMPUR: Eligible members of the Armed Forces Fund Board (LTAT) will be receiving a 12% dividend as a result of the board registering a higher profit or the financial year ended Dec 31, 2016. The fund saw a 5.7% increase in its earnings to RM811 million for 2016 compared with the previous year’s profit of RM766.8 million. Eligible members will receive 6% dividend and 6% special bonus in the form of units trusts amounting to RM685.5 million. The 12% dividend is higher than the average yearly dividend and bonuses paid out since the establishment of LTAT 44 years ago, which stands at 11.3% a year. For the financial year under review, LTAT’s total assets increased to RM9.5 billion from RM9.3 billion in FY2015 while members’ contributions amounted to RM8.6 billion, compared with RM9.1 billion in the previous year. “I am very pleased with the results and performance achieved by LTAT for FY2016 and hope this performance will be sustained and improved for the coming years to ensure that the welfare of the serving members and retired members of the Armed Forces is always protected,” said Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein.

Booking As soon as I learned that Hawaiian Airlines' retrofitted A330s would be flying to JFK this month, I searched Google Flights and bought a one-way ticket to Honolulu for $1,153.28 using my Amex Platinum card — I ended up earning almost 5,800 Amex points since the card gives you a 5x bonus on airfare when tickets are booked directly with an airline or through Amex Travel. Airport and Check-In Hawaiian Airlines operates out of JFK’s Terminal 5, which is also home to JetBlue, Aer Lingus and TAP Portugal. The departures hall at T5 is overwhelmingly JetBlue-focused, and Hawaiian Airlines occupies only a few desks at the far end. Considering the ridiculous security lapse that happened at JFK over the weekend, I was very curious to see how the TSA was handling things. Agents definitely seemed to be making an extra effort to contain passengers in line and keep a a closer eye on those passing through the terminal — they were not at all amused when I pulled out my camera and tried to snap a few pictures.

Shortly before starting my internship at TPG, I came across Peter Rothbart’s post on maximizing the benefits of FoundersCard in Las Vegas. Like Peter, poker plays a large part in my life as I run a poker coaching business and have a strategy podcast and blog . Knowing that I would be returning to World Series of Poker in Las Vegas this coming summer and likely staying at Caesars properties, saving a ton of money on resort fees alone convinced me to apply for the card. FoundersCard‘s current public offer is $795 per year for membership, plus a one-time $95 initiation fee. If you sign up here , though, you’ll receive annual membership for only $395 with a waived initiation fee. Now you might be thinking how could we at TPG recommend a card with no sign-up bonus that costs around the same as the best premium travel credit cards . Well, first of all, it's important to note that FoundersCard isn't a credit card; you can't charge purchases to it — instead, as a member you're eligible to a wide variety of discounts, including many specific to Las Vegas.

This truck came standard with a heavy duty winch, which can be utilized from either end of the truck, using a series of cables and pullies mounted beneath the truck, along with the removable bumper mounted cable guide. This winch was designed to pull this truck up (or down) the mountainside, and the PTO does engage fully. The winch drum itself spins freely but not when the PTO is engaged so it will more than likely need servicinig or simply to have fluid added to it. The bonus? How about a fully adjustable 6 foot snow plow, that's been custom fabricated to mount onto the front bumper. This truck is rugged, reliable, and ready to for any terrain you're willing to traverse. Have we mentioned that the underside is as dry as the desert wind? Well, it is. As far as the interiorWait, what interior?! The interior is very raw and basic. Wooden floor treads line the cargo area, while 2 metal-framed pilot and co-pilot seats occupy the front end.

With this card, you'll earn 2 points per dollar spent at Southwest and 1 point per dollar on everything else. Unfortunately, this card does charge a 3% foreign transaction fee , so you won't want to use it on overseas trips. You'll also get 3,000 bonus points after your cardmember anniversary each year, and with only a $69 annual fee, the cost of keeping the card long-term is at the low end of the scale for airline co-branded cards. Finally, the points you earn from spending on this card count toward earning the Southwest Companion Pass, which will remain the case even after hotel point transfers no longer count after the end of March . At that point, Southwest credit cards will be one of the few ways left to earn qualifying Companion Pass points other than actual flights on Southwest . So if you've got a lot of spend during the year and fly regularly on Southwest with a spouse, family member or friend, this could be the perfect card for you.

The accredited reseller will therefore serve as the vendor's eyes and ears on the ground – a huge bonus in the eyes of customers that, while no longer willing to tolerate lengthy tech deployments or business disruption, do not want to lose the human element from their supplier relationships altogether. Finally, solutions providers should look to stand out by raising their security credentials, irrespective of their specialisation, as with pretty much every piece of software, hardware, device, sensors or other endpoint now connected to the internet, security is going to be a far bigger consideration for their target customers. This is the age of the Enterprise of Things - the network of intelligent connections and endpoints within the enterprise that enable products to move from sketch to scale - and solution providers and value added resellers need to be able to demonstrate not just an understanding of the security issues – they need to be able to proactively recommend solutions to customers wary of the prospect of creating new vulnerability points within their corporate network.

Thanks to this new music video from Aussie singer-songwriter Betty Who , we now know exactly what a night out at the local coin-operated laundromat looks likeand the right attire for turning the doldrums of laundry time into a proper disco fest. In the upbeat dreamscape video for Some Kinda Wonderful, the alt-pop ingenue manages to turn a dreary few hours of chores into a fantastical party, complete with an attempt to chat up a newfound crush (and get a peek at his requisite chiseled abs). While the partyand the affections of the crushmight be all in her head, Who's cheeky attitude and the song's catchy hook will latch easily onto listeners' imagination. Some Kinda Wonderful is the third single off of Who's upcoming album The Valley , out later in March. Check it out above, and just try not to start bopping along. Bonus: the next laundry day is already looking up.

Showering earlier in the evening gives your body a chance to cool off and can even trigger sleep, says Shelby Harris, director of behavioral sleep medicine at New Yorks Montefiore Medical Center. Several studies have shown that warming your body by taking a bath can help induce sleep when theres enough time to cool off afterward. While much of the research has focused on baths, a 20-minute shower would have similar effects, Harris says. Time your shower so you're done about an hour and a half before you want to hit the sack, Harris recommends. That way, by the time you lay down in bed, your body will be cool, dry and ready for sleep. As a bonus, you can fold the very important step of washing your face into your nighttime shower. According to the National Sleep Foundation, cleansing before bed can help clear your skin and reduce breakouts, guard against wrinkles and help night creams and moisturizers work more effectively.
