CFPB issues resources on LIBOR transition

first_img continue reading » When NCUA issued its 2020 supervisory priorities, one item of note was preparing for the end of London Inter-bank Offered Rate (LIBOR). We blogged about this and briefly covered the topic in an article for our Compliance Monitor(member only). Now there are some new resources and a proposed rule from the CFPB on this issue.The United Kingdom’s Financial Conduct Authority has announced that it can no longer guarantee the reliability of LIBOR beyond 2021. Currently, LIBOR is used an indicative measure of the average interest rate at which major global banks could borrow from one another and often tied to consumer loan rates. Although not all credit unions rely on LIBOR as an index for variable rate loans, some do and Regulation Z has limitations for changing an underlying index on products. In the FAQ document, the bureau summarized various provisions that may come into play. For closed-end products, this includes:Adjustable-rate mortgage origination disclosures under section 1026.19(b)(2); ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

GTT National Indoor Hockey Championships…

first_imgPepsi Hikers dominate male category– Pizza Hut GCC snag ladies title.THE Pepsi Hikers entertained the crowd on the final night of the GTT National Indoor Championships with a master class of hockey ending with an 8-1 defeat of Bounty GCC.The Pizza Hut GCC did similar damage to the Woodpecker Hikers in the women’s final which ended 7-1 while the Old Fort Supersonics and Vintage carted off the veterans title.The Pepsi Hikers seemed to know what their opponent was doing and scored several goals after stringing together a series of precise passes to mesmerise Bounty’s defence.While GCC opted to use their individual skills to try to penetrate a rock solid Hikers defence, the Hikers speed in their counter-attack coupled with pin-point accuracy in their passes made them unstoppable on the evening.Pizza Hut GCC ladies after winning their titlePizza Hut GCC ladies after winning their titleNational midfielders Jamarj Assanah and Aroydy Branford, both of whom would have benefited from a 6-month hockey stint in the UK earlier this year, showed their class with both players scoring hat-tricks. Seasoned campaigner Randy Hope managed a double to round out the 8 goals for the Hikers.Bounty GCC managed to scramble one goal back in the dying moments of the match through Kevin Spencer but was never truly in contention as the Hikers cruised to their 8-1 victory.The Pizza Hut GCC ladies were also in a class by themselves as they seemed hardly challenged by the Woodpecker Hikers. Traditional defender Vanessa Pires was given the reigns by her coach to play on the forward line and she delivered in fine fashion for the champs with a match-leading hat-trick.After a Pires opening strike and one each from Gabriella Xavier and Sonia Jardine, the Hikers’ Latacia Chung saw her shot completely fooled goalkeeper Natalie Hing and rolled ever so gently into the GCC’s goal for a 3-1 score by the half. The Pizza Hut ladies stormed back with four unanswered goals in the second half, two from Pires, one from Xavier and one more from veteran striker Tricia Fiedtkou to pull off the 7-1 win.The GCC Vintage found themselves against the ropes in their veterans clash against the Hikers but managed to pull off the win with two goals in the final ten minutes to separate the teams by one. The 5-4 victory for Vintage came through a deuce of goals each from MVP Dwayne Scott and Philip Fernandes while Patrick Edghill added a single. Devin Munroe and Timothy Jonas each scored a pair of goals to make up the Hikers’ four.The most competitive match of the evening probably was the men’s second division final where the score line seesawed throughout the match with Old Fort’s Jael Gaskin deciding the match in the final minute with a powerful first-time shot into the GCC net for a 4-3 win.On the individual end of things the most promising male player was Hilmar Chester (Saint Stanislaus College), while Spartan’s Makeda Harding took the female class.In second division action,GCC Pitbulls’ Kareem McKenzie was the leading goal-scorer with David Williams (Old Fort Supersonics) being adjudged the best goalkeeper and Omar Hopkinson the Most Valuable Player.In the veterans division Devin Munroe of Hikers scored the most goals while the Vintage duo of Rawl Davson and Dwayne Scott picked up the best goalkeeper and MVP awards respectively.On the ladies end, Most goals scored award went to Kerensa Fernandes (Pizza Hut GCC), Best Goalkeeper was Briawna Gordon (Spartans) and the MVP was Dominique DeGroot (Spartans).Aroydy Branford (Pepsi Hikers) scored the most goals in the men’s first division with Anthony Cole (Old Fort Ravens) being adjudged the best goalkeeper and Pepsi Hikers’ Robert France taking the MVP.last_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The Ohio Poultry Association (OPA) recently announced its 2015 award recipients during the organization’s annual meeting and banquet in Columbus. This year, there were three awards which honored four individuals who have made a significant contribution to Ohio’s egg, chicken and turkey communities.“Every year we seek individuals whose work and accomplishments promote the goals of our poultry community to provide Ohioans safe, affordable food,” said Jim Chakeres, OPA executive vice president. “I am honored to work with so many talented individuals, farms and businesses who continually go above and beyond what is expected of them – and this year’s award winners are no exception.”Awards and recipients at the 30th Annual OPA Banquet included:Golden Egg Award: Tom Hertzfeld IIThe Golden Egg Award recognizes an individual who is committed to advancing the mission and values of the state’s egg, chicken and turkey farmers. This year’s honor was presented to Tom Hertzfeld II, of Grand Rapids, Ohio. Hertzfeld serves as the president of Hertzfeld Poultry Farms.

The Hustler’s Playbook: Whatever It Takes

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 3rd book: Eat Their Lunch “The first ever playbook for B2B salespeople on how to win clients and customers who are already being serviced by your competition.” Buy Now If you want success, you have to do whatever it takes. But, know that there are boundaries on whatever it takes.Whatever it takes, as long as it is not illegal or immoral. You may want to be on the cover of the New York Times, but what the headline reads is important, isn’t it? There is no recipe for success that requires you break the law or act immorally. In fact, both of these things (even if you see others do something illegal or immoral to gain financial success), ensure that you are not successful.Whatever it takes, as long as whatever it takes doesn’t harm others. You don’t have to take advantage of someone to be successful. You don’t have to force them to do something that doesn’t benefit them, and you never have to be manipulative. These are the choices of the weak, and they’re the strategies of those who lack character, influence, and the ability to persuade people. You are a failure if what you do to “succeed” harms others.Whatever it takes, as long as what you are doing isn’t what is easy instead of what is necessary. Both of the paragraphs above speak to the idea that some people try to take shortcuts to gain the success they want. They try to do what is fast, instead of doing what is right. They don’t play the long game that real success requires, and they aren’t patient in their pursuit. Real success often comes overnight—after you have put in years of hard work.Whatever it takes, as long as it is aligned with your longer term goals. Success now isn’t going to look like success later. What is important to you at 28 will not be what is important to you at 48 or 68 or 88. “Whatever it takes” needs to include your legacy. What are you going to be known for? What is your contribution? “Whatever it takes,” as long as it is something you will be proud of having done.If “whatever it takes” makes you believe you have to do something that goes against the ideas written here, you will never be truly successful. Success is a matter of who you are, and if you are someone who is willing to succeed at the expense of others, you are not successful, and you are not thoughtful or resourceful enough to have the success you desire.last_img read more
