CUNA supports CFPB extension of ex parte deadline

first_imgCUNA appreciates the announcement from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) this week that it will make changes to its disclosure requirements to its current ex parte policy on rulemakings. The new policy gives commenters 10 business days to submit a documentation of a presentation, via written copy or summary, up from 3 days in the original policy.Under the current policy, an “ex parte presentation” means “any written or oral communication” by “any person outside the CFPB that imparts information or argument directed to the merits or outcomes of a rulemaking proceeding.”CUNA believes in the importance of the bureau’s ex parte policy to create a record of communications between credit unions and CFPB staff, and as an avenue to highlight credit union concerns and suggestions to improve CFPB rules. continue reading » 9SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Your consumers: Smart strategies for providing short-term liquidity

first_imgAccording to the Pew Research Center, about half of lower-income Americans report household job or wage loss due to COVID-19. Young adults were disproportionately at risk of job losses from COVID-19, as were the least educated and those working low-wage jobs—common demographics of workers in high-risk industries, such as restaurants/bars and other service sectors such as transportation, retail, personal care, arts & entertainment, childcare and many others.Other common characteristics of these consumers which worsen their financial situation:They often don’t receive benefits such as paid leave.They do not have the option to work remotely.Many do not have emergency funds.Many do not have access to liquidity to pay their bills. In fact, under a traditional credit scoring system, many of these workers would not qualify for loans or other types of short-term credit.They often have no choice but to turn to high-priced payday loans.Although federal regulators have repeatedly urged credit unions to offer more favorable alternatives to high-priced loans—particularly on the heels of COVID-19, the prevalence of predatory lending continues, often trapping consumers in endless cycles of payday loan debt. Give your members a better way, or they WILL stray.  In Velocity Solutions’ free white paper, we’ll discuss how the current economic crisis is affecting consumers’ financial behavior, and various strategies and options for providing short-term liquidity to your members in a time when they need your support more than ever.For more information, download our free white paper, Part IV of Velocity Solutions’ Credit Union Recovery Series:  Your Consumers: Smart Strategies for Providing Short-Term Liquidity. 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Msgr. Tom Hartman, of God Squad Fame, Dies

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Msgr. Thomas Hartman, the Roman Catholic priest from Long Island nationally known as half of the God Squad, a popular television show about religion, died following a years-long battle with Parkinson’s disease. He was 69.Father Tom, as he was known, became a household name with Rabbi Marc Gellman following the success of the TV show they co-hosted for 20 years on Telecare, the faith-based cable network that Hartman ran for the Diocese of Rockville Centre. The show led to a nationally-syndicated newspaper column, as well as regular TV and radio appearances on shows with larger audiences than their own, such as Good Morning America. After his diagnosis, Hartman stepped back from the spotlight and founded a charity that donated millions to find a cure for Parkinson’s.“Our friendship produced many words, but it never needed words,” Gellman wrote in his Newsday column Wednesday eulogizing Hartman. “Tommy taught me that smiles are more important than words, and I do not need words now to remember that transformative wisdom.” Hartman grew up in East Williston before entering the Hempstead seminary when he was in the ninth grade after passing up his dream of becoming a baseball player and instead joining the clergy like his uncle, aunts and cousins before him. He was ordained in 1971 and eight years later graduated with a Doctor of Ministry degree from the Jesuit School of Theology at Berkley.Hartman was also a parish priest at St. Vincent de Paul in Elmont and a chaplain for the Nassau County Police Department. Hartman joined forces with Gellman, the Rabbi Emeritus of Temple Beth Torah in Melville, after the two met while discussion religion on News12 Long Island. The next day, they formed the God Squad, in which the straight-laced Hartman and quick-witted Gellman discussed morality and religion.The duo eventually became LI’s best-known clergymen, making appearances on national cable news networks. They were even animated for an HBO children’s special based on their book of the same name, How Do You Spell God? But if they ever struggled to balance their fame and their duties, it never showed.”I’m definitely the straight man,” Hartman told The New York Times during the height of their fame in the ‘90s. ”Marc is much funnier than I and more vocal. I’m quieter. I want Marc to be the star. To some degree I’ve had more fame. Initially he had to gain it. So it was bigger in his mind. And in many ways he’s more talented than I.”In 2003, Hartman broke the news of his diagnoses in his newspaper column, which had only launched a year prior. He had kept it secret for four years by that point. Gellman still writes the column for Tribune Media Services, but visited Hartman weekly at the nursing home where Father Tom lived until his passing.Hartman’s charity donations led to the formation of the Thomas Hartman Foundation for Parkinson Research  in the Department of Neurobiology & Behavior at Stony Brook University. Funeral arrangements have not yet been announced.last_img read more

Family and small hotels from now on all in one place

first_imgThe National Association of Family and Small Hotels, an umbrella association that brings together small hoteliers and represents their specific interests, presented a new modern website with a list of all small family hotels – www.omh.hrSmall and family hotels are annoying a lot in our market and are at a disadvantage. They are mostly hampered by legislation, categorization and minimum conditions, parafiscal and local levies, and unfavorable financial conditions for day-to-day development. “The adventure is more and more dangerous and risky. When we talk about investing in small and family hotels, it is most profitable to invest in apartments for rent, and not small and family hotels.”Pointed out Šime Klarić, president of OMH, and added that the Law on Small and Family Hotels should finally be adopted.12 years ago, OMH made an official document with a list of what hinders their development, which was submitted to the Ministry of Tourism, but to date there have been no changes. The only thing that has changed is VAT in catering. Today, OMH, in its regular and associate membership, has 146 hotels and 66 high-quality boarding houses and agro-households from all over Croatia, representing a financially independent interest group.The National Association of Family and Small Hotels (OMH) was founded in 2004, driven by the need of a growing number of small hoteliers for an association that will represent their specific interests and enable the continuous improvement of the quality of their offer. The mission of the OMH Association is to bring together the best family and small hotels in Croatia, which are characterized by uniqueness, recognizable quality and authenticity, providing guests with a unique experience.Personally, I think that small and family hotels are the future of our development and a solution for extending the season, ie seasonality, because large hotels cannot be opened out of season due to high costs of cold drive, while small and family hotels certainly can. Also, small and family hotels sell an authentic story, exactly what the motive of the trip is.last_img read more

She reportedly attended Donald Trump’s inauguration as a guest of his daughter Ivanka.Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner have been photographed attending a Chelsea game and the US Tennis Open together with Zhukova.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Powered by Firework Pakistan head coach and former batsman Misbah-ul-Haq, has decided to ban biryani and other oil-based red meat dishes for his team to help his players get back into shape. The decision was imposed after the team was declared as one of the most ‘unfit’ sides in the world and the social media didn’t hold back to troll on this issue including their plus sized captain Sarfaraz Ahmed.Advertisement During the 2019 World Cup many people raised questions regarding the Pakistani team’s diet and fitness including their former pacer Shoaib Akhtar, who even called skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed as a ‘fat and unfit’ player after the loss against West Indies in the tournament opener. To make the matter even worse, there were some rumours that the team was seen eating junk food ahead of their match against arch-rivals India. Following their loss in that match, one crying fan complained that the Pakistani cricket board wasn’t aware of the fitness issues in the team. Therefore, Misbah’s decision to ban fat from the diet chart can prove to be a crucial step to reorganize the team under his guidance.Advertisement Our new coach “Misbah ul haq” has banned “Biryani” for cricket team .
