Older adults are among the most vulnerable for contracting the virus.The virtual celebration via Zoom is scheduled Saturday, July 18, from 3 to 5 p.m. Athletes, Laskey and others will share photos and videos from past years, fitness tips will be offered by Pasadena Senior Games sports commissioners and athletes, and friendships forged over the years will be rekindled.“Every year the Pasadena Senior Games promotes healthy lifestyles for older adults through education, fitness and the spirited competition of sports,” said Laskey. “These remarkable athletes are shining examples that good health, socialization and optimism all contribute to healthy lifestyles, so we all remain confident that next year they will be able to compete again.”Athletes are invited to display or wear their medals, T-shirts and/or other memorabilia from prior Pasadena Senior Games during the Zoom celebration.Friends and families of athletes, the Pasadena community and others are welcome to join in the celebration.To register or for more information, visit www.pasadenaseniorcenter.org and click on Lectures and Events, then Online Events, call (626) 795-4331 or email [email protected] Everyone who registers online will receive email instructions for accessing the Zoom celebration.For more information about Pasadena Senior Center programs and services, including more online options for classes, events and activities during the COVID-19 crisis, visit www.pasadenaseniorcenter.org or call (626) 795-4331.The center, at 85 E. Holly St., is an independent, donor-supported nonprofit organization that has been deemed an essential service provider for older adults by the city of Pasadena, so its doors remain open five days a week for social services and other assistance to older adults in need. Hours during this period are Mondays through Fridays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

In particular, according to a new Fiserv study, there is a strong correlation between mobile banking usage, debit and credit card point-of-sale transactions and ATM usage.Fiserv compared the number and frequency of transactions in the three months before and after consumers enrolled in mobile banking. Although existing mobile banking users account for 14.4 percent of the customer base in the banks studied, they drove more than 39 percent of the total point-of-sale (POS) spend. When consumers can check their balances on their smartphones when they’re out and about, it may lead to increased spending of available funds. And of course, increased card usage means more incremental interchange revenue for financial institutions. continue reading »
