Despite recent opposition from the House Financial Services Committee, Comptroller of the Currency Joseph Otting released a statement saying his office will move forward with an overhaul of the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA). “It is our intention to craft a final rule that will encourage banks to lend and invest more in the communities they serve, including low- and moderate-income neighborhoods,” Otting said. Otting continued, saying the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) seeks to increase support to distressed areas. He added that modernizing CRA regulations would require OCC-regulated banks to conduct and hold on their balance sheet of $500 billion to meet minimum requirements and up to $1 trillion to meet outstanding requirements and CRA qualified investments and loans. “Modernization would bring valuable additional resources to communities across America that are currently underserved by the current regime and provide greater transparency to help ensure those dollars serve the communities they were intended to help,” he said. Otting added, “Further delay would only prevent these valuable resources from reaching those who need them most in this time of national emergency.”Maxine Waters, Chair of the House Financial Services Committee, previously sent a letter to Otting and Jelena McWilliams, Chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, urging them to prioritize a strong response to the COVID-19 pandemic and suspend efforts to revise the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) and any “unrelated rulemakings.”“At a time when regulators should be working together to appropriately respond to this growing pandemic and keep our banking system safe and sound, unrelated rulemaking should be put on hold for the time being,” the lawmakers wrote. “To that end, we urge you to delay any unrelated rulemakings, including the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to the CRA, during the ongoing crisis. After the crisis passes, we urge your agencies to work with the Federal Reserve to develop a new, joint NPRM that is consistent with the purpose of the Community Reinvestment Act.”Waters and members of the Committee voiced their displeasure with proposed changes to the CRA during a hearing in January. “Under Comptroller [Joseph] Otting, the Community Reinvestment Act would become the Community Disinvestment Act. Such a radical change to the CRA demands a heightened level of public scrutiny,” Waters said. Waters said that proposed changes to the CRA by the OCC would lead to “widespread bank disinvestment from low and moderate communities.” She added the changes set forth by Otting would allow banks to receive a passing grade by doing the bare minimum.

Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone 4th inning: 3-run homer5th inning: 3-run homerAbsolute unit. 💪 💪 pic.twitter.com/rhZVNCpHcx— MLB (@MLB) July 20, 2019 Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros The more lasting concern was Barría. Prior to the game, Ausmus labeled Barría the favorite to take the rotation spot of Matt Harvey, who was designated for assignment.After the game, Barría conceded that the constant shuttle to and from Triple-A – this is his seventh separate major-league stint – has been wearing on him.“Sometimes I pitch here, get sent down, sit at home for two days, and then rejoin Salt Lake,” he said. “It’s hard because I’ve been doing the work to stay here. But I always try to give my best.”If there was room for optimism Friday, perhaps pitching every fifth day for the Angels could help Barría stabilize his return.“I think so,” he said. “Being here I can relax. I can focus on my pitches. I don’t have to worry about if I pitch well they send me down, or if I pitch a bad game and they still send me down. I always try to come here and more than anything I think I have the possibility to pitch better next time.” Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield PreviousAngels pitcher Jaime Barria, right, sits in the dugout next to a jersey bearing the number of former Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs, who died earlier this month, during the first inning of Friday’s game against the Mariners in Seattle.

(AP Photo/Ted S. Warren)ExpandSEATTLE — An underground utility cable in downtown failed Friday night, knocking out power to parts of T-Mobile Park. Two concession stands were affected. The out-of-town scoreboard above the bullpens in left-center field went dark. The main video board in center field went dark too, until it began flashing sporadically in the fifth inning of the Angels’ game against the Mariners.The flashes were a potential distraction. Trevor Gooby, the Mariners’ senior vice president of ballpark operations, stepped onto the field to consult with the managers and umpires. The players stood around for five minutes, waiting while the game was delayed. Andrelton Simmons was frozen in a 1-and-2 count before a restless crowd.A technical glitch was the only thing that could stop Mariners pitcher Mike Leake.When play resumed, Simmons foul-tipped a changeup for strike three, a footnote to a footnote as Leake fell three outs short of throwing the 24th perfect game in major league history. Leake did not allow a baserunner until Luis Rengifo singled in the ninth inning of the Angels’ 10-0 loss to the Mariners. “I think he threw very well today,” Rengifo said of Leake. “In and out, changeup, curveball. My last at-bat, the only thing, I got ready for breaking ball or changeup, and I got that hit to the right side.”Leake (8-8) completed his second career shutout in a mere 98 pitches. No Angels hitter saw a three-ball count until Kevan Smith walked immediately after Rengifo’s single. When Leake struck out Mike Trout for the game’s final out, Rengifo was stranded on third base. Leake struck out six Angels in all.It was the third consecutive loss for the Angels (50-49), who are one game behind the third-place Rangers (50-47) and 12 behind the first-place Astros (62-37) in the American League West.The outcome of this game was seldom in doubt. Mariners first baseman Daniel Vogelbach hit a pair of three-run home runs against Angels pitcher Jaime Barría (3-3), accounting for six of the Mariners’ 10 runs. After opener Taylor Cole threw two shutout innings, Barría was charged with 10 runs in 3⅔ innings. His ERA rose from 5.22 to 7.36.“I wasn’t locating my pitches, allowed too many walks,” Barría said through an interpreter. “That’s what happens when you get in bad counts. It was a bad outing for me.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter The game eerily mirrored the last time Leake pitched against the Angels, seven days ago in Anaheim. The veteran right-hander recorded only two outs that night. He was charged with allowing seven of the Angels’ 13 runs. Most memorably, Cole and Felix Peña combined to throw a no-hitter. Every Angels player wore a number 45 Tyler Skaggs jersey in their first home game since the death of their teammate. That game featured every emotion a baseball game could contain.The Angels ostensibly left all their emotions at home when they departed for a three-game trip to Seattle, to say nothing of their bats. No pitcher had thrown a no-hitter against the Angels since the Twins’ Eric Milton on Sept. 11, 1999. Kenny Rogers threw the only previous perfect game against the Angels on July 28, 1994.“Guys battled and tried to have good at-bats,” Ausmus said. “We didn’t have bad at-bats. We didn’t look overmatched. But we didn’t make a ton of solid contact. We hit a few balls hard but right at guys. And when you have a perfect game bid go that deep, you’re going to have that.”Shohei Ohtani had the game’s hardest hit, a 108-mph fly ball to center field. Mallex Smith got a good jump and made the catch look easy. Mike Trout hit a 107-mph line drive to the shortstop hole in his third at-bat, but J.P. Crawford caught it an inch above the ground. The Angels’ best plays were on defense.Kole Calhoun made two diving catches in right field – one to rob J.P. Crawford in the fifth inning, another to deny Kristopher Negron in the sixth. Trevor Cahill and Jared Walsh did not allow a run over the game’s final 2⅓ innings. Walsh also played first base, and the Angels played the final inning without a designated hitter.Related Articles

By Samuel SukhnandanAs the National Toshaos Council (NTC) conference got underway on Monday at the Cyril Potter College of Education, several burning issues affecting Amerindian communities were brought to the fore from the onset, some of which included the alleged political interference in Indigenous communities and the need for strengthening of the NTC – the largest organisation representing this particular ethnic group.President David Granger; Prime Minister, Moses Nagamootoo; Indigenous Peoples Affairs Minister Sydney Allicock; NTC Chairman Joel Fredericks and member of the National Toshaos Council at the opening on MondayVice President and Indigenous People’s Affairs Minister, Sydney Allicock stated in his address at the opening of the annual conference that the NTC leadership appears to be weak and disjointed and urged leaders to work towards strengthening this institution. Allicock said however that leadership among villages and communities seems to be much stronger than that of the NTC executive.“I detect the need for a stronger, more unified approach to decision-making at the level of the executive. I urge that we recognise the need for deepening the process of consultation on some critical issues between that body and the wider leadership of the NTC – this means you,” the Minister stated.Allicock questioned whether leaders that form the NTC have been consulted on issues affecting their respective villages and whether they know what happens after the executive of the NTC makes a decision on a particular matter. On that note, the Minister said a lot more focus needs to be placed on creating positive changes in the many Amerindian villages that spread across Guyana.According to him, too much negativity is often peddled in forums like that conference. He said while it’s important to highlight challenges that face these Amerindians villages, it would also be good to suggest sound development plans that could help with bettering the livelihoods of the people of the villages.Meanwhile, NTC Chairman Joel Fredericks told the delegation at the conference that there is political interference, in the execution of programmes and policies in Amerindian communities, such as the establishment of towns. This includes areas such as: Lethem, in Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo); Bartica in Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni); and Mahdia, in Region Eight (Potaro-Siparuni).“We need to have consultation, Mr President; all of these without the Indigenous participation through FPIC (Free Prior and Informed Consent). This is troubling and needs redress mechanism,” he posited, while calling for the establishment of the Indigenous Peoples Commission.Fredericks said apart from this issue, the most reoccurring issue affecting Amerindian villages until now is land rights. While acknowledging that these issues can only be addressed over a long period of time, the NTC Chairman said more work is needed in this area.The NTC Chairman also urged leaders to work together to resolve the issue of the Amerindian Act. He said, “Let us work together instead of back and forth, pulling and tugging. We need to attack the issues and change our mindset of attacking personalities.”Land titling and demarcation, and amendments to the Amerindian Act of 2006 are two of the topics that will be up for discussion at this year’s NTC Conference.Land demarcation of Indigenous settlements, especially with regard to mining activity, has long been a contentious issue among leaders of these communities.Many Indigenous leaders and organisations have voiced concerns over the imposition of mining activity on their lands to Government and the public over the years.
Chelsea dominated a goalless first half but were unable to find a finish to match their fine build-up play.Eden Hazard, restored to the starting line-up after impressing as a substitute in the midweek win over Dynamo Kiev, was the standout player in an entertaining first half and was involved in most of Chelsea’s best moments.The Belgian combined with Willian to tee up Ramires for a shooting chance on the break and then showed neat skills on the left to put in a cross that just eluded Diego Costa.He also had a dangerous shot blocked from a corner, but the best Blues chance fell to Ramires, whose brilliant 25-yard half-volley was tipped over by keeper Jack Butland.Stoke’s Xherdan Shaqiri fired an acrobatic early effort over the bar and Jon Walters forced a smart low save from keeper Asmir Begovic.Chelsea, missing manager Jose Mourinho because of his stadium ban, included Pedro alongside Willian and Hazard in an attacking midfield, meaning Cesc Fabregas and Oscar were left in the bench.Chelsea: Begovic; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Terry, Baba; Ramires, Matic; Willian, Hazard, Pedro; Costa.Subs: Amelia, Cahil, Mikel, Fabregas, Oscar, Kenedy, Remy.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… frederic lardinois Tags:#Browsers#news#NYT#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Mozilla plans to release Fennec, the mobile version of Firefox, for Nokia’s Maemo, Windows Mobile and Android devices in the near future. In an interview with Om Malik, Mozilla CEO John Lilly also said that Mozilla has fallen behind in the mobile space, as WebKit-based browsers like Safari on the iPhone currently have a large lead, but he is confident that Mozilla can deliver a better browsing experience. Mozilla, according to Lilly, wanted to wait for devices to get to the point where they could handle everything a desktop browser could. Mozilla, however, isn’t likely to develop a mobile version of Firefox for BlackBerry anytime soon. Fennec, the mobile version of Firefox, which was announced in April 2008, reached its beta earlier this year. At that time, Mozilla was looking into OEM deals with Nokia, Windows Mobile and Symbian. At that time, it was unclear if Mozilla was going to develop a version of Fennec for Android and the browser was only available for the Nokia 810. Since then, the mobile browser market has shifted once again and now Maemo and Android are the prime targets for Fennec. In the mobile market, Fennec goes up against Opera Mobile and Skyfire, which are available on a wide variety of platforms. The most important competitor, however, is probably Safari, though Apple only makes its browser available on its own phones. Safari may not be available on a large number of different phones, but it has set the bar pretty high when it comes to the user experience that users now expect from a mobile browser. With the Awesome bar and Weave bookmark synchronization, Firefox, however, will offer a number of features that Safari doesn’t currently offer. Fennec will also offer support for plugins. Om Malik looked at an early version of Fennec on the Nokia N900 and thinks that the browser “is perhaps its single biggest standout feature” on the device.Mozilla on the iPhoneEarlier last week, a number of rumors about a Mozilla app for the iPhone also started to make the rounds, though it remains unclear what this app would look like. Apple, after all, isn’t likely to allow a full Firefox-based browser on the iPhone.

TORONTO – Cott Corp.’s US$1.25-billion deal to sell its beverage manufacturing business to Refresco has raised concerns for the United Kingdom Competition Markets Authority.The company says Refresco has been informed by the regulator that the deal raises potential competition concerns regarding juice drinks in PET using an aseptic production process that allows them to be sold preservative-free without refrigeration.In the United Kingdom, the combined company produces these products in two factories, Bridgwater (Refresco) and Nelson (Cott).Cott says Refresco is examining the decision and is willing to offer suitable remedies and will co-operate with the regulator to address the concerns.Refresco is an independent bottler of soft drinks and fruit juices for retailers and brands with production in Europe and the United States.Cott (TSX:BCB) has said the sale of its traditional drink manufacturing business will help position it to better grow its water, coffee, tea and filtration businesses both organically and with acquisitions.
