NAFCU on Hill for Yellen, Cordray testimony

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr NAFCU staff will monitor several hearings on Capitol Hill this week, including two featuring testimony from Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen on the economy and one with testimony from CFPB Director Richard Cordray on bureau activities.Yellen will present her agency’s Semiannual Monetary Policy Report to the Congress at hearings at the House Financial Services Committee on Wednesday and the Senate Banking Committee on Thursday. In a speech in Cleveland last week, Yellen said her outlook on the economy is “broadly consistent” with what Federal Open Market Committee members said in June, and that she still believes the federal funds rate will be raised this year. The FOMC had a range of forecasts for the federal funds rate in June: two members projected no increases this year, while the other 15 members were split between predicting one, two or three rate increases.Also on Wednesday, Cordray will testify before the Senate Banking Committee for CFPB’s Semiannual Report to Congress. The report looks at CFPB regulatory and enforcement activities, consumer outreach, staffing and more.In related news, House Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, said last week that he plans to hold two more hearings on the impact of the Dodd-Frank Actto mark its five-year anniversary. “What is undebatable is the fact that since the passage of Dodd-Frank the big banks are now bigger; the small banks are now fewer,” he said. “In other words, even more banking assets are now concentrated in the so-called ‘Too Big to Fail’ firms. Pray tell, how does this improve financial stability?” continue reading »last_img read more

Premier League: Aguero, Klopp break records with awards for January

first_img Loading… Jurgen Klopp and Sergio Aguero have won the Premier League’s monthly awards for January, setting new records in the process. Sergio Aguero has been named the Premier League’s Player of the Month for a record seventh time, while Jurgen Klopp takes home the managers’ gong for on an unprecedented fifth occasion in a single season. Manchester City striker Aguero was in lethal form throughout January, scoring six times and registering an assist from just three matches. Aguero also scored a brace in the 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace and got the only goal of the game as City beat Sheffield United 1-0. Having previously been tied with Steven Gerrard and Harry Kane on six Player of the Month awards, Aguero is now out in front on his own – the 31-year-old beating out competition from Alisson, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Jack Grealish, Jordan Henderson, Ayoze Perez and Jack Stephens. Read Also: Liverpool star engaging in more baptisms than he’s let in goals Klopp oversaw five successive wins in January to continue Liverpool’s ominous march towards a first top-flight crown in 30 years. It is the fifth time this term he has won the award, setting a new record for wins in a single season, taking that honour from Pep Guardiola. Klopp has now won the award eight times, a haul beaten by only Alex Ferguson, Arsene Wenger and David Moyes.

Five things we learned in the Premier League

first_imgLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Manchester City and Manchester United sit atop the table with exactly the same statistics but the former ahead by dint of C coming before U in the alphabet.City demolished Watford 6-0 on Saturday and United tore apart Everton in the final 10 minutes of their encounter to prevail 4-0 on Sunday.Champions Chelsea are three points adrift of the duo after they were held 0-0 at home by Arsenal for whom it was the first time in six visits they even garnered a point.Pochettino can’t solve Wembley woesHaving dispatched Borussia Dortmund with a swaggering display in the Champions League on Wednesday, it seemed Tottenham had finally vanished their Wembley curse. Mauricio Pochettino’s side had struggled badly at the national stadium, which is their home while White Hart Lane is rebuilt, but the victory over Dortmund was expected to trigger a resumption of the home form that saw them win 17 of 19 league games last term. Swansea had other ideas however. Defending resolutely, they frustrated Spurs in Saturday’s 0-0 draw, with Harry Kane hitting the woodwork for the hosts, who also had three penalty appeals turned down. Even Pochettino, who has tried to play down the Wembley jinx, admitted he was at a loss to explain how his side failed to turn 26 shots into three points.Klopp has little defenceLiverpool manager Jurgen Klopp’s botched attempt to prise Virgil van Dijk away from Southampton looks even more of a blooper with every game. Burnley’s early season away form is showing a marked improvement from last season but nevertheless it was another Liverpool defensive error that gifted the visitors’ Scott Arfield the goal. Klopp for all his urbanity and attractive attacking football could well fall if he doesn’t fix the defensive malaise as it is proving costly. “A little block here, we miss Arfield, or forget him, and he can score,” said Klopp. “It was a disciplined performance but just that one goal. This is where we have to improve.”Aguero inspired by JesusSergio Aguero has reacted in the manner Pep Guardiola must have only dreamed of when he signed young Brazilian striker Gabriel Jesus who arrived last January. Some thought the 29-year-old Argentinian might be sold on or leave of his own volition but he has stayed and with his sixth Premier League hat-trick in the 6-0 demolition of Watford is within three goals of becoming City’s all-time leading scorer — Eric Crook’s mark of 177 goals which has stood since 1939. Jesus also got on the scoresheet as City made it 15 goals scored and none conceded in their last three matches but it is Aguero who is giving the lead. “He’s very special, just a goal machine,” purred City team-mate Ilkay Gundogan. Share on: WhatsApp Resilient UnitedEverton had taken the upper hand in the second-half of their game with Manchester United but paid for not taking their chances. United showed they can soak up pressure and make their opponents pay as they scored three times in the final 10 minutes of the match with former Everton striker Romelu Lukaku creating one and scoring another — all this without the injured Paul Pogba. The signs are that United have the extra firepower — Zlatan Ibrahimovic is still to return — this season to sustain a serious challenge for the title.center_img Arsenal show fight at lastAfter years of misery at Stamford Bridge, Arsenal finally showed some much-needed fighting spirit to earn a gritty 0-0 draw against 10-man Chelsea on Sunday. Arsene Wenger’s side had endured a series of humiliating losses in west London, beaten on their last five visits, but for once they were up to the task. Matching the Premier League champions tackle for tackle, the Gunners frustrated Chelsea so completely that Blues defender David Luiz lost his composure in the 87th minute. Launching into a crude two-footed lunge on Arsenal’s Sead Kolasinac, the Brazilian earned a red card from referee Michael Oliver. The dismissal came too late to swing the balance of power in Arsenal’s favour, but at least the north Londoners departed with their confidence enhanced by a first clean-sheet at the Bridge since 2005. For Chelsea, a third red card in their last three matches with Arsenal added to the angst of a spluttering display.last_img read more

Police watchdog clear Port Alberni RCMP in jail cell death of First

first_imgLaurie HamelinAPTN NewsBritish Columbia’s police watchdog has cleared the Port Alberni RCMP of wrongdoing in the death of an 18-year-old First Nations woman.Jocelyn George died in 2016 after a night in police custody. George was taken into custody for being intoxicated in a public space. She was released later that day on June 23 only to be taken back later that evening after a relative, concerned for her wellbeing, called police.“She had been in cells overnight at the RCMP station in Port Alberni and they didn’t notice that her health had been deteriorating. When they checked on her in the morning, obviously something was wrong, and by the time they got her to the hospital, they flew her to Victoria, it was just too late,” said Judith Sayers, president of the Nuu-chah-nulth Tribal Council“Everybody was horrified, like how did this happen? Why did it happen? Why wasn’t it caught sooner?”It was later determined that George died from impacts of methamphetamine and cocaine on her heart.George was monitored through a video monitor through the night in question.“As long as she was moving her legs or something they thought she was OK. But obviously she wasn’t,” said Sayers.The RCMP were cleared in the death but the family is disappointed.“A security guard should always check on people, especially when they are incarcerated for intoxication of alcohol or drugs,” said Richard Lucas, George’s great uncle.Sayers said there needs to be a review.“We have had other Nuu-chah-nulth die in custody before. We don’t want to see it ever happen again and if we can take measures, if we can learn from this experience so that others don’t die in custody we’ll feel so much better that we have done everything that we can to help the memory of Jocelyn,” she [email protected]last_img read more
