In a victory for CUNA and credit unions, the Senate voted Tuesday to in favor of a resolution to repeal the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s arbitration rule under the Congressional Review Act. With the House approving the resolution of disapproval in July, H.J. Res. 111 will now go to President Donald Trump for his signature, expected in the coming days.“We’re grateful that the Senate, and the House, recognized that the CFPB’s arbitration rule did not benefit credit unions members,” said CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle. “This rule ignored the different size and member-ownership structure of credit unions and instead treated them as akin to abusive Wall Street banks. The CFPB’s rule encourages credit union members to act against their own best-interest by engaging in costly class action litigation which depletes the resources of the membership as a whole and instead benefits trial lawyers most. This rule was just the latest example of the one-size-fits-all rulemaking coming from the CFPB and thankfully Congress acted to remedy the situation.”The CFPB’s rule, finalized in July, would have restricted the use of pre-dispute arbitration clauses. Stopping the rule is a victory for CUNA’s Campaign for Common-Sense Regulation, launched earlier this year to see common sense regulations enacted. continue reading » 9SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrread more
Kyler Murray fires a missile to Christian Kirk for a 56-yard touchdown for the Cardinals. Murray responded in the best way possible, throwing touchdown passes on Arizona’s next two possessions – including a 56-yarder to Christian Kirk – but the Dolphins answered each of those with scores of their own, including a nine-yard strike from Tua to Preston Williams, who injured his foot on the play when diving for the goal line.The Dolphins led 24-17 at half-time, but the Cardinals turned that into a seven-point lead by the end of the third quarter as Murray found the endzone on a 12-yard run following off the back of a 21-yard scoring strike to Darrell Daniels, who outwrestled Miami cornerback Byron Jones for his first career TD. Preston Williams dives over the line for a Miami touchdown but injures himself on the play. Miami Dolphins’ rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa got the better of Arizona Cardinals’ own, exciting young QB talent Kyler Murray as he led his team to a thrilling 34-31 win in his second NFL start.Tua completed 20 of 28 passes for 248 yards, with two touchdowns and no turnovers. He also ran seven times for 35 yards as Miami (5-3) won their fourth-straight game – the team’s longest winning streak in four years. – Advertisement – Dolphins 7-0 CardinalsShaq Lawson 36-yard fumble return for a TD (extra point) Cardinals stats: Kyler Murray, 21/26, 283 yards, 3 TDsRushing leader: Kyler Murray, 11 carries, 106 yards, 1 TDReceiving leader: Christian Kirk, five catches, 123 yards, 1 TDAlthough the QB clash was the big draw, Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders also had a crucial role in the victory as he made two field goals, including a career-best 56-yarder. His other conversion, from 50 yards, set a Dolphins record for consecutive kicks without a miss (20) and proved to be the winning score.It gave Miami a 34-31 lead with three minutes and 30 seconds left on the clock; the Dolphins defence forced the Cardinals into a 49-yard field goal try by Zane Gonzalez to tie the game and possibly take it to overtime but he missed with the kick. 1:06 Darrell Daniels scores his first NFL TD as he snatches the ball in the endzone for the Cardinals.

Their involvement has outraged the Indonesian Teachers Association (PGRI) and the two-largest Muslim organizations in the country, Nahdlatul Ulama (NU) and Muhammadiyah.They expressed their objections and withdrew from the program, saying that organizations with corporate backing should not be allowed to participate and get support from the state budget.The three organizations were selected to participate in the “Elephant” category of the program, making them eligible for the largest grant of Rp 20 billion (US$1.3 million) to train teachers at 100 schools. Tanoto and Putera Sampoerna are also in the “Elephant” category.In addition to emphasizing the latter two’s participation in the self-financing scheme, Nadiem also apologized to the three organizations and promised to evaluate the POP.However, they have yet to decide whether they would reenter.Syaiful Huda, chairman of the House of Representatives Commission X overseeing education, said Nadiem had not informed lawmakers about financing schemes other than a fully funded scheme sourced from the state budget.”If there had been no public criticism, maybe the program would still have only one scheme. But I think adding the two new schemes is a good idea,” Syaiful said on Thursday.Tanoto and Putera Sampoerna, he said, should be the supporting organizations taking part in the program using their own money.”I think this is the best policy and it’s acceptable,” the National Awakening Party (PKB) politician said.However, he added that the House would still summon Nadiem to provide an explanation as to why the House had never been told about the other two financing schemes for the program.“There was only a single scheme, the fully funded one worth Rp 595 billion.” The Tanoto Foundation and the Putera Sampoerna Foundation will not be eligible for a grant from a government teacher training program, Education and Culture Minister Nadiem Makarim has said.They will instead use a self-financing scheme to participate in the Mobilization Organization Program (POP), which is part of the ministry’s Freedom to Learn initiative aimed at improving the quality of Indonesia’s teachers by involving communities and organizations. “The ministry has made an agreement with the Tanoto Foundation and the Putera Sampoerna Foundation that they will participate in the program without using any funds from the state budget. They will fund their own efforts,” Nadiem said in a written statement on Tuesday.

Perfect place to chill out with a good book.“We have made many modifications over the 10 years we have owned it,” she said.“For example, we totally repainted the interior with a neutral palette, built a dedicated library/reading room downstairs with premium built-in bookshelves and desk nooks in the bedrooms, built-in shelves/cupboards in dining/sitting room, lounge and upstairs lounge and main bathroom remodel.” FOR SALE: 90 Stradbroke Ave, Wynnum.“Walking into the house through the beautiful front door and into the expansive glass walled, timber floored living area with the sparkling pool … I was sold.”Ms Hubbard said she loved the seamless blend of old world elegance with the minimalistic, yet classic feel of the new. “There are many spaces and rooms to give every family member the flexibility to be in their own world, or to be together, but never to feel crowded.”She said they would “very reluctantly” sell, as their family situation has changed.“The three girls have grown up and moved on with their lives and we spend a large portion of the year overseas,” she said.The home at 90 Stradbroke Avenue is on the market now though Sash and Gable Property.

TPR said the data it released yesterday provided context to the expectations it set as part of its annual funding statement (AFS), and Warwick-Thompson confirmed the regulator’s intent.“Having made our expectations so clear in this year’s AFS, if we see a situation where we believe a scheme is not being treated fairly, we are likely to intervene,” he said. “For example, if a company is paying out more in dividends than in deficit reduction contributions, we will expect to see a short recovery plan. And we will expect that recovery plan to be underpinned by an appropriate investment strategy.”The analysis released yesterday related to DB schemes carrying out valuations between 22 September 2016 and 21 September 2017.TPR said the vast majority of schemes remained affordable, but many should do more to tackle increased benefits.For 37% of schemes TPR considered the employer covenant adequate to support the scheme, but said the current contribution and/or risk strategies posed unnecessary longer-term risks.These could be mitigated by an increased pace of funding, in some cases combined with a reduction in the level of risk, it added.Darren Redmayne, chief executive of Lincoln Pensions, said it was concerning, but not surprising, that TPR viewed nearly four in 10 schemes as taking unnecessary longer-term risks.“To date the industry has focused too much on current scheme deficits and not enough on the risks being run, which can result in further deficits emerging,” he said.Redmayne added that TPR had fired “a warning salvo” regarding the balance between dividends and deficit contributions.“We expect some corporate dividend decisions will come back to bite their directors and shareholders in the coming years,” he said. UK FTSE 350 companies significantly increased dividend payments over the previous six years, but failed to match these with deficit reduction payments to defined benefit (DB) pension schemes, according to the regulator.The Pensions Regulator (TPR) said that the ratio of deficit repair contributions to dividends declined from around 10% to 7% between 2011 and 2016.This was mainly due to a significant increase in dividends over the period, without a similar increase in contributions, it added.Andrew Warwick-Thompson, outgoing TPR executive director for regulatory policy, said the development was disappointing. “We are not against companies paying out dividends but employers must strike the right balance between the interests of the scheme and of its shareholders,” he said.TPR last month published its annual report on DB scheme funding, calling on dividend-paying companies to ensure a balance between cash paid to shareholders and contributions to pension schemes.read more
NewsRegional Bahamas to improve access to drinking water by: – November 23, 2011 Sharing is caring! 7 Views no discussions Share Share Image via: topnews.inWASHINGTON, USA — The Bahamas will overhaul major parts of the water infrastructure in New Providence with the help of an $81 million loan approved by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).The five-year program is expected to cut in half the amount of water lost through leakages in New Providence, conserving precious drinking water and improving financial sustainability for local water suppliers.A total of 6,000 leaks will be repaired and 9,000 new water connections will be activated by project completion. Moreover, water pressure and continuity are expected to rise significantly, leading to better service for 38,000 households that already connected to the water network.“The Bahamas has by far the lowest ratio of fresh water to population in Latin America and the Caribbean,” said Evan Cayetano, project team leader at the IDB. “The amount of available fresh water per capita is less than 0.1 percent of the regional average, which highlights the need for action in this sector.”The operation will establish a new independent environmental regulator to protect the country’s scarce fresh water resources, as well as a new economic regulator. It also aims to strengthen management of the Water and Sewerage Corporation, the country’s main provider of water services, implementing a monitoring system to facilitate operation and maintenance.The program will also target potential health hazards by rehabilitating broken sewerage infrastructure and coming up with a master plan to address wastewater collection and treatment in New Providence.Caribbean News Now Share Tweetread more
