September’s Stimulating Tips for Teens

Banks vs Credit Unions

Consider these little-known facts. If you have an account at a credit union, you are considered a member of that credit union. You have the right to vote on who makes the decisions at your credit union. Credit unions often have lower interest rates than banks, which can make a difference if you need a personal, car, or home loan one day.

Banks, on the other hand, are “for profit” companies. Their interest rates and fees are generally more expensive. Banks may have more locations available, more online features, and may be open outside of normal business hours.

 Whichever you decide to do business with, here are a few terms that mean the same regardless of which you choose.

Deposit:   Putting money in your account

Withdrawal:  Taking money out of your account

Balance:   The amount of money in your account

Fees:   Money charged to you for different services provided

Overdrawn: Using more money than your current balance. This can result in more fees

For Profit: To make money.

Look for next month’s Continuous $timulus discussion. Until then, Keep your mind on your money!

The New Artificial Intelligence: Risk or Reward?

One of the most significant risks posed by AI is the potential for data breaches. AI systems rely on vast amounts of data to function, and if that data falls into the wrong hands, it can be used to steal sensitive information or launch targeted attacks. For example, a hacker could use AI to analyze a company’s social media accounts, email correspondence, and other publicly available information to identify potential targets for phishing attacks or other forms of social engineering. They could also use AI to analyze a company’s network traffic and identify vulnerabilities that could be exploited to gain access to sensitive data.
