NAFCU-backed ‘TAILOR Act’ passes committee

first_imgVoting 34-22, the House Financial Services Committee on Wednesday passed the NAFCU-backed H.R. 2896, the “TAILOR Act,” a regulatory relief measure that would require that rules be tailored to fit financial institutions’ business models and risk profiles.The bill now awaits House action.H.R. 2896, the “Taking Account of Institutions with Low Operation Risk (TAILOR) Act of 2015,” would ensure that NCUA, CFPB and other regulators do not use a one-size-fits-all approach to rulemaking.Introduced by House Financial Services Committee members Scott Tipton, R-Colo., and Andy Barr, R-Ky., and cosponsored by committee member Rep. Ed Perlmutter, D-Colo., the bill would also require NCUA and CFPB to testify annually before the House Financial Services and Senate Banking Committees on specific actions taken to comply with the measure. continue reading » 7SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Late Terry goal gives Blues victory

first_imgReturning captain John Terry bundled in a stoppage-time goal as Chelsea beat Everton 1-0 to consolidate their lead at the top of the Barclays Premier League. Everton’s fluid football was causing problems for Chelsea, who were bidding to respond from a two-match winless streak following the draw at West Brom and FA Cup loss at Manchester City. The visitors would not allow their hosts to settle, disrupting their rhythm with Osman, James McCarthy and Gareth Barry breaking up play in midfield. When Chelsea got beyond the Toffees trio, they encountered another defensive wall in Sylvain Distin and Jagielka, who acrobatically cleared a menacing Hazard cross. When that rearguard was breached, Eto’o wrong-footed Distin and shot left-footed, only for Howard to save. Kevin Mirallas miscued a shooting chance from the edge of the area and Willian scuffed a shot at Howard as the half closed with Everton the better side. Chelsea’s playmakers struggled in the first half and Oscar was sacrificed at half-time. The Brazil playmaker’s recent showings have been below his high standards, something Mourinho attributed to the British weather, but on a spring-like day he was unusually quiet. The more industrious Ramires came on and was immediately in the thick of the action, taking part in a shoving match with Osman after Steven Pienaar went to ground. Referee Lee Probert opted for a drop ball. Chelsea pushed forwards, with Lampard shooting at Howard before Distin blocked the follow-up effort. An attempted Eto’o through-ball towards Hazard hit Jagielka’s arm as the defender tumbled over and Chelsea, more hope than expectation, appealed in vain for a penalty. Willian and Ramires shot off target but still Everton were threatening. Osman’s shot from the edge of the area clipped Mirallas, and Cech scrambled the ball round the post. In an open game, Chelsea had three opportunities in quick succession following a corner. First Hazard’s shot was parried by Howard. Eto’o tried to direct his headed follow-up across goal and into the top corner, but served only to miss the target completely and the goalkeeper then denied Ivanovic. Fernando Torres replaced Willian and Eto’o pushed wide right before later making way for Andre Schurrle, while Ross Barkley came on for Osman for the visitors. Still Chelsea were struggling to find the incisive pass, while Everton were playing like visitors, by having just scraps to feed off, unlike in the first half when they were marginally on top. Mirallas was replaced by Gerard Deulofeu and Aiden McGeady replaced Pienaar with 10 minutes to go, with Martinez as positive as Mourinho in his substitutions, believing his side could win the contest. Chelsea continued to forge forward and Torres blasted into Hazard and wide when the ball would not quite sit for the Belgian and then the Spain striker fired wildly wide. Terry stood firm as Barkley ran at him in the Chelsea penalty area and Ramires fired narrowly wide at the other end. Finally the deadlock was broken after Ramires and Jagielka collided and the Chelsea man was awarded a free-kick. Lampard whipped in the ball and Terry stabbed it beyond Howard. Press Association It appeared two points would be dropped by Jose Mourinho’s men as an entertaining contest remained goalless until Phil Jagielka was adjudged to have fouled Ramires in the left channel. Frank Lampard’s inswinging free-kick was glanced down by Branislav Ivanovic and Terry slid in to score past Tim Howard. It was a timely intervention from the skipper, who returned following a three-game absence with a gluteal muscle problem. Chelsea had won once in his absence, but they now travel to Galatasaray for the Champions League last-16 first leg with Didier Drogba’s side on Wednesday after a morale-boosting victory. Howard had earlier denied Eden Hazard and Ivanovic in quick succession, and Everton, who won the Goodison Park contest in September, were unfortunate to be beaten as their winless away run was extended to five games. Mourinho’s unbeaten Premier League home record extended to 74 games as luck was on Chelsea’s side. With Romelu Lukaku prevented from facing his parent club, Roberto Martinez had selected Lacina Traore for his first Premier League start, only for the giant Ivorian to withdraw after feeling his hamstring in the warm-up. In came Steven Naismith, who scored the winner in September’s clash, but it was nonetheless a blow for the visitors. At 5ft 8in Naismith is a foot shorter than Traore, offering a different threat to Terry and leaving Everton short of an attacking focal point. Oscar received a yellow card for a foul on the Scot, who then played a lay-off for Leon Osman to strike a rising drive which required Petr Cech to tip over at full stretch. last_img read more

After ‘I Do’ Comes a Lifetime Together

first_imgTom agrees, and heads back to his busy tax season customers. Laughter. Yes, laughter is vital to keep a marriage happy, these decades of experience have shown. And 52 years after they got married, Carol and Jim Quirk of Rumson continue to laugh and enjoy life with enthusiasm. Both graduates of Long Branch High School before going on to higher education, they met, dated, not seriously, but always keeping in touch. It was after Jim served as a commissioned officer in the Army and was discharged in 1965, and Carol was teaching, that Jim said he had “saved up $200, let’s get married!”They waited, even though they were sure, but both had things they wanted to accomplish first. Jim’s professions, both with Chase Manhattan Bank and as an NFL referee, meant a lot of travel for him, enough that they joke today: “In 50 years of marriage, we’ve probably only been together 35!”“You do what you can to make it work,” Carol advises, “but having a sense of humor and mutual respect are essential. Just don’t try changing your partner – it will never happen!”Carol and Jim QuirkIf there were hurdles, there was never anything serious since they worked together to resolve them, and nothing was insurmountable. The Quirks are parents of two sons and a daughter, and are just home from welcoming the birth of their sixth grandchild – the first grandson – in California. “We’re not the only ones among our friends married this long,” she said. “It just seems that our generation made these commitments and worked through the problems because it was important to stay together.”This article was first published in the “I Do” wedding section of the Feb. 15-22, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times. It’s been just over 60 years since Lillian G. Beneforti stood in New York’s historic Trinity Church and pledged vows to recently commissioned Coast Guard officer Donald Burry, the man she knew and loved from their days at Wagner College on Staten Island. The elegant wedding was followed by an even more elegant reception at the famed Delmonico’s Restaurant.Following his military service, Don, a chemical engineer, went on to be East Coast regional manager for Rohm Haas Chemical Co. of Philadelphia and Lillian left teaching to take on the challenges of volunteer work, first for the environment, then for the League of Women Voters, political officer locally and ultimately on the Monmouth County Board of Freeholders where she is tireless while Don patiently stands back with support and assistance.Donald and Lillian BurryParents of a daughter, with two grandchildren and two great grandchildren, the Burrys believe there has to be mutual respect, integrity and flexibility, and with that, “everything else will flow.“You can’t smother one another,” Lillian advises and Don agrees. “You have to let each one grow and have his own space. At the same time, you must think in the plural rather than singular – it’s we, and not I.” They’ve been lucky, they think, because both agree that in the past 60 years, each has been the other’s soul mate, friend, sounding board and extension of self. “I was prom queen in college and he was my prince,” Lillian said, adding with a smile, “and he still is.” Carol and Jim QuirkCAROL AND JIM QUIRK Carol and Tony BuccoTONY AND CAROL BUCCOFor Tony and Carol Bucco of Highlands, it started with blending their two strong ethnic backgrounds and their age difference of 14 years. With the groom coming from a very large Italian family from Matawan and the bride from a small Irish family in Highlands, Tony thought from the start that there could be difficulties to overcome. When he and Carol met in 1963 through a friend who took her and her sister to a Catholic Youth Adult Club meeting in Keansburg, it was Carol’s sister who passed Carol’s phone number to the World War II veteran, and Anthony Bucco began his pursuit of a much younger Carol.“That’s how it all began, “Carol laughs, “That was the fun part –deciding to marry was more difficult mainly because of our age difference.”After more than 52 years of marriage, five children, 10 living grandchildren and two who have predeceased them, and both retired, Carol from her job as a high school math teacher and Tony as a senior clerk with Jersey Central Power and Light, they’re still going strong. Tony, who turned 94 earlier this month, isn’t as active as he has been in the past, but still lights up a room with his quiet, droll sense of humor and words of wisdom.Tony and Carol BuccoNeither the age difference nor the ethnic differences seemed to present any real problems, the couple think now, looking back. The bigger problems really came with the more ordinary concerns of getting children through college and raising them to proper adulthood. Candy and Tom VethCANDY AND TOM VETHCandy Veth of Atlantic Highlands says when a friend set her up on a blind date with a Middletown guy just discharged from the Navy, she was uncertain. But when Tom Veth politely called her on the phone making the initial contact and offered to pick her up for their first date at Monmouth Mall, she accepted. “I wasn’t thinking of marriage, just a date,” Candy recalls. “But when I saw him walking up the walk to our house in Middletown, I knew that was who I would marry for life!”Candy and Tom Veth recently celebrated 44 years of wedded bliss. The two Middletown natives never met before that blind date, although Candy, a few years younger than Tom, had heard of some of his brothers – the Veths were a big family in the Middletown area – when they were students at Middletown High School. Residents of Atlantic Highlands for 41 years, the couple have three daughters, two granddaughters and are expecting a third grandchild in May.Candy and Tom VethFor Candy, the most difficult part of marriage was “learning to be independent and having a life of my own,” because of Tom’s erratic and long office hours, first as an auditor working for others, then as a successful CPA with his own office. “I had to forge a life to fill the days and nights when he’s at work,” she said, “and so far, I’ve traveled to five continents with my girlfriends.”The best part of marriage, she said is “having someone to tell your problems to, and knowing, even if he isn’t warm and fuzzy or outwardly romantic and sentimental, he’s always there to right the wrong.”Advice for someone getting married today? “Roll with the punches, don’t be afraid of change, stay open to it, take it day by day – it’s worth the effort.” The Buccos’ advice for couples looking at marriage today would be simply to love each other enough to tolerate individual differences. “It’s important not to harbor any animosity for a long period of time. You can go to sleep angry, but you shouldn’t wake up that way. Having a strong faith and learning to tolerate each other’s differences and similarities make it all doable,” she said.Donald and Lillian BurryLILLIAN AND DONALD BURRY By Muriel J. Smith |Some met in high school, college or as young adults. Some knew from the instant they laid eyes on each other; others become fast friends and pals or dated or married others first. They all had one thing in common: the consensus of these married couples with more than 425 years as husband and wife is you must learn to roll with the punches.last_img read more

Middletown Withdraws from Affordable Housing Proceedings

first_imgCampisi called the township’s actions “discouraging” and said the decisions not to include affordable units in those developments was in direct violation of the municipality’s state-certified plans. Fair Share Housing Center spokesperson Anthony Campisi said Middletown Township’s history is not one of inclusion. Mercantante said the threat is theoretical and the township has had success navigating any such lawsuits in the past. “We’ll address any of those on a case-by-case basis if we have to. Our record is strong,” he said. The decision to withdraw from the proceedings could leave Middletown susceptible to builder’s remedy lawsuits, in which a developer proposes a housing project in a town that has not reached a settlement agreement with the state. Though details about the settlement proceedings could not be disclosed, Mercantante said the Fair Share Housing Center wanted to stake Middletown to “hundreds of more units” as part of an ongoing third round of obligations. As for Four Ponds, Mercantante said the proposal came before the planning board at a time when COAH was disbanded by the state. “Few towns in New Jersey are as committed to excluding working class residents as Middletown. This is a town that consistently fails to fulfill promises and instead permits large-scale developments without any affordable units included,” Campisi said, citing a 180-unit development at the former Bamm Hollow Country Club and another 228-unit development in Four Ponds at Lincroft. Since 2008, 350 new affordable units were issued certificates of occupancy. That equates to 31 percent of 1,119 total residential units issued certificates in that period. Mercantante said the Bamm Hollow project was scaled back dramatically from an initial proposal of about 1,200 units to the 180 on site today. The site plan was submitted when New Jersey’s state Council on Affordable Housing (COAH) still existed. MIDDLETOWN – In a bold move, township officials are pushing back against state-mandated affordable housing obligations they say are unreasonable and unrealistic. According to township administrator Anthony P. Mercantante, last week township attorney Brian Nelson was directed to apply for an order of dismissal in Middletown’s ongoing New Jersey Superior Court proceedings, which began in July 2015. center_img “At the time, we alreadyhad a COAH-certified planthat did not include BammHollow. We didn’t need toinclude it in our plan. Ourobligation had already beenmet,” Mercantante said. “Long before I was on the township committee our governing body and administration have worked in good faith with the Fair Share Housing Committee to ensure Middletown continued its record as a socioeconomically diverse community. We thought we were in good standing moving forward, but we came to a stonewall and can’t operate in good faith any longer,” Perry said. He noted the settlement included a stipulation that for each one of the homes built at the former country club, an annual contribution is made to the municipality’s affordable housing trust fund, which he said is used to create other opportunities for low- and moderate-income residents and families. “Nearly 300 towns across the state have housing settlements in place or being approved. We’re not asking Middletown to do anything special. We’re asking them to follow the law. And we’ll be monitoring the situation very closely to see if any litigation arises as a result of the withdrawal,” Campisi said. “COAH disappeared and we had no idea what the future of affordable housing would be. So we decided not to include affordable housing in that development and ensured it was included in future developments,” Mercantante said. Mayor Tony Perry said the obligations proposed by the Fair Share Housing Center were “unreasonable.” The proceedings were led by the Fair Share Housing Center, a nonprofit organization founded in 1975 to defend the rights of New Jersey residents against exclusionary municipal zoning practices. According to Mercantante, since 1999 the township has created 605 affordable units in various forms of housing types, including condominiums, detached single-family homes, rental apartments, senior housing and accessory apartments. Additionally, four more development projects, including the residential tract of the Village 35 project – which calls for 280 luxury townhomes and 70 affordable units in three separate apartment buildings – call for the construction of affordable units.last_img read more

Half-time: Man City 1 Chelsea 0 – Hosts dominate one-sided first half at the Etihad

first_imgSergio Aguero’s goal put Manchester City ahead in a match they have so far dominated.Aguero netted just after the half-hour mark at the Etihad Stadium, coolly controlling David Silva’s ball into box and then steering his shot beyond Asmir Begovic.The goal came after keeper Begovic, playing in place of the suspended Thibaut Courtois, had produced three saves to temporarily prevent Aguero putting City ahead.In the opening minute the summer signing from Stoke made a superb block to deny Aguero, who returned to the City starting line-up having been a substitute for their game at West Brom.Begovic was soon called into action again, this time keeping out Aguero’s shot after the striker had been found by Aleksandar Kolarov.The Bosnian also did brilliantly to save Aguero’s first-time strike from Jesus Navas’ low cross.Aguero then missed a great chance when he poked wide after John Terry had failed to clear Raheem Sterling’s left-wing cross.But he made no mistake after being set up by Silva – the Argentine’s 10th goal in his last nine Premier League matches.Aguero then turned provider to tee up Sterling, who blazed over.And Eliaquim Mangala missed a great chance to double City’s lead just before the break when he beat Begovic to Kolorov’s cross only to head wide of the target.Chelsea: Begovic; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta; Ramires, Matic; Willian, Fabregas, Hazard; Costa.

Africa can lead the way on climate change

first_img8 June 2015African governments, investors, and international financial institutions must significantly scale up investment in energy to unlock Africa’s potential as a global low-carbon superpower.That is the main message of a new report from Kofi Annan’s Africa Progress Panel, Power, People, Planet: Seizing Africa’s Energy and Climate Opportunities. The report calls for a ten-fold increase in power generation to provide all Africans with access to electricity by 2030. This would reduce poverty and inequality, boost growth, and provide the climate leadership that is sorely missing at the international level.“We categorically reject the idea that Africa has to choose between growth and low- carbon development,” said Annan, the chairman of the Africa Progress Panel. “Africa needs to utilise all of its energy assets in the short term, while building the foundations for a competitive, low-carbon energy infrastructure.”In sub-Saharan Africa, 621 million people lack access to electricity – and this number is rising. Excluding South Africa, which generates half the region’s electricity, sub-Saharan Africa uses less electricity than Spain. It would take the average Tanzanian eight years to use as much electricity as an average American consumes in a single month. And over the course of one year someone boiling a kettle twice a day in the United Kingdom uses five times more electricity than an Ethiopian consumes over the same year.Power shortages diminish the region’s growth by 2% to 4% a year, holding back efforts to create jobs and reduce poverty. Despite a decade of growth, the power generation gap between Africa and other regions is widening. Nigeria is an oil exporting superpower, but 95 million of the country’s citizens rely on wood, charcoal and straw for energy.Energy spendThe report reveals that households living on less than $2.50 (R31.57) a day collectively spend $10-billion every year on energy-related products, such as charcoal, kerosene, candles and torches. Measured on a per unit basis, Africa’s poorest households are spending around $10/kWh on lighting – 20 times more than Africa’s richest households. By comparison, the national average cost for electricity in the United States is $0.12/kWh and in the United Kingdom is $0.15/kWh.This is a significant market failure. Low-cost renewable technologies could reduce the cost of energy, benefiting millions of poor households, creating investment opportunities, and cutting carbon emissions.The report says Africa’s leaders must start an energy revolution that connects the unconnected, and meets the demands of consumers, businesses and investors for affordable and reliable electricity. The 2015 Africa Progress Report urges African governments to:Use the region’s natural gas to provide domestic energy as well as exports, while harnessing Africa’s vast untapped renewable energy potential;Cut corruption, make utility governance more transparent, strengthen regulations, and increase public spending on energy infrastructure; and,Redirect the $21-billion spent on subsidies for loss-making utilities and electricity consumption – which benefit mainly the rich – towards connection subsidies and renewable energy investments that deliver energy to the poor.The report also calls for strengthened international co-operation to close Africa’s energy sector financing gap, estimated to be $55-billion annually to 2030, which includes $35-billion for investments in plant, transmission and distribution, and $20- billion for the costs of universal access.A global connectivity fund with a target of reaching an additional 600 million Africans by 2030 is needed to drive investment in on- and off-grid energy provision. Aid donors and financial institutions should do more to unlock private investment through risk guarantees and mitigation finance.End ‘climate negotiating poker’The report challenges African governments and their international partners to raise the level of ambition for the crucial climate summit in Paris in December, and calls for wholesale reform of the fragmented, under-resourced and ineffective climate financing system.G20 countries should set a timetable for phasing out fossil fuel subsidies, the report states, with a ban on exploration and production subsidies by 2018. “Many rich country governments tell us they want a climate deal. But at the same time billions of dollars of taxpayers’ money are subsidising the discovery of new coal, oil and gas reserves,” Annan said. “They should be pricing carbon out of the market through taxation, not subsiding a climate catastrophe.”While recognising recent improvements in the negotiating positions of the European Union, the United States and China, the report says that current proposals still fall far short of a credible deal for limiting global warming to no more than 2˚C above pre-industrial levels. It condemns Australia, Canada, Japan and Russia for effectively withdrawing from constructive engagement on climate.“By hedging their bets and waiting for others to move first, some governments are playing poker with the planet and future generations’ lives. This is not a moment for prevarication, short-term self-interest, and constrained ambition, but for bold global leadership and decisive action,” Annan said.African low-carbon leaders“Countries like Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda and South Africa are emerging as front- runners in the global transition to low carbon energy. Africa is well positioned to expand the power generation needed to drive growth, deliver energy for all and play a leadership role in the crucial climate change negotiations.”The ten-member Africa Progress Panel advocates at the highest levels for equitable and sustainable development in Africa. The panel releases its flagship publication, the Africa Progress Report, every year.Source: Africa Progress Panellast_img read more

Six Congress MLAs made Punjab CM’s advisors, BJP cries foul

first_imgThe Punjab government has appointed six Minister-rank advisors to Chief Minister Amarinder Singh, a move termed by the opposition BJP as an attempt to circumvent the constitutional cap on the size of State’s Cabinet.The development is also being seen as an attempt to placate those who failed to get a berth in the last Cabinet reshuffle in the State. Five Congress MLAs will now get the status of Cabinet Ministers and the sixth that of a Minister of State, officials said on Tuesday. Four MLAs — Kushaldeep Singh Dhillon of Faridkot, Singh Raja Warring of Gidderbaha, Sangat Singh Gilzian of Urmur and Inderbir Singh Bolaria of Amritsar South — have been designated as advisors (political) while the fifth one, Kuljeet Singh Nagra of Fatehgarh Sahib, has been designated as advisor (planning), officials said.All the five have been given the Cabinet rank and status, they said. The sixth one — Tarsem Singh DC of Attari — has been given the designation of Advisor (planning) with the rank of a minister of state, the officials said. The opposition claimed the move is aimed at circumventing the Constitution (91th amendment) Act, 2003.It is clearly a step to circumvent the law whereby the strength of ministers cannot exceed 15 per cent of the total members of the House. With the appointment of political advisers, the government is putting additional financial burden on the state exchequer, BJP national secretary Tarun Chugh said. With 117 members in the Punjab assembly, the maximum strength of the council of ministers can be 18. Including the Chief Minister, the Punjab government has already 17 ministers in its Cabinet. The Chief Minister’s move came amid resentment among some Congress legislators over several issues, including denied ministerial berths. Some MLAs are also upset with the state government over its handling of cases of desecration of the Guru Granth Sahib in the state in 2015.last_img read more
