These regulations took effect in March, but there is a six month transition period, with some requirements being phased in over the next year.What follows is one man’s opinion and not a substitute for consultation with your own counsel and compliance team.NY’s regulations apply to “any person operating under or required to operate under a license, registration, charter, certificate, permit, accreditation or similar authorization under the Banking Law, the Insurance Law or the Financial Services Law.” This definition clearly applies to state chartered credit unions and CUSO incorporated or licensed in New York State, such as a mortgage banking or title insurance business.What if you have a federally chartered credit union that makes mortgage loans? Here is where people part ways with my analysis. Even though originators working for banks and credit unions are exempt from state licensing requirements under Section 12C of the banking law, they still must be registered with NYS as loan originators. (N.Y. Banking Law § 599-c(3)(a) (McKinney). On its face the regulation is broad enough to be triggered by this requirement. 21SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
Kansas City Federal Reserve President Esther George, and a voting member on the Federal Reserve Open Market Committee (FOMC) this year, said the monetary-policy setting committee “should proceed with caution” as it considers future rate hikes.Following its December meeting, the committee moved forward with its fourth rate hike of 2018, raising the federal funds target rate by a quarter-point to a range of 2.25 to 2.5 percent. The committee also pared its projection for 2019 rate hikes from three to two. It is set to meet next Jan. 29-30.“A pause in the normalization process would give us time to assess if the economy is responding as expected with a slowing of growth to a pace that is sustainable over the longer run,” George said while speaking at the Central Exchange Tuesday. “Failure to recognize these lags [in monetary policy] could lead to an overtightening of policy, a downturn in economic growth and an undershooting of our inflation objective.” ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr The Federal Reserve continue reading »

MANILA – President Rodrigo Duterte lectured the public on the importance of wearing face masks to prevent the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in the country. Duterte also said that violations of the mandatory wearing of face masks in public places and the observance of physical distancing can be considered a “serious crime” given that the country is seeing an outbreak of infections. “Maski gamitin mo siguro ‘yan ng dalawang beses okay man, kung isprayhan mo ng alcohol pagtapos, wag ‘yun iniispray mo tapos suot agad,” President Duterte said in an address to the public on Tuesday. “We have to ask our police to be more strict, hulihin talaga. A little shame would put them on notice forever,” Duterte said. “Sino ba naman gustong mahuli ka? But if you are brought to the police station and detained there, that would give you a lesson for all time.” Based on the latest data from the Department of Health, there were reported 1,521 new confirmed cases of the COVID-19 in the country, bringing the country’s total to 68,898./PN The WHO added that medical masks should be discarded immediately after use and preferably thrown in a closed bin.

Duterte, in a taped address aired Tuesday morning, claimed masks can be used for up to two times as long as these are sprayed with a disinfectant.

The seven-times Grade One winner appeared as good as ever in winning his first four starts last season, but was firmly put in his place by jump racing’s newest superstar Sprinter Sacre in the Queen Mother Champion Chase at Cheltenham and at the Punchestown Festival. Sizing Europe’s trainer Henry de Bromhead is looking forward to seeing his 11-year-old return to competitive action at Gowran Park on October 5. Press Association De Bromhead said: “He’ll hopefully run in the race at Gowran, in early October, over two-and-a-half that he has won for the past two years. “He’s back in now and is starting off steadily.” Another horse de Bromhead has recently welcomed back into the fold is long-term absentee Loosen My Load. The eight-times winner has not been seen since running at Punchestown in May 2012 and is set to go down the hunter chase route this season. “He got hurt last year but is good now and we’ll start him off in September in some of the good hunter chases,” said de Bromhead. “I think he’ll be a nice horse for those races.” Sizing Europe is likely to kick off yet another campaign by bidding for a hat-trick in the PWC Champion Chase at Gowran Park.
Press Association Leicester manager Nigel Pearson is hopeful of further bolstering his rookie Barclays Premier League squad despite hinting at his frustration with the recruitment process. “We are looking to bring more players in,” he said. “I don’t think it’s right to talk about players publicly when we’ve not achieved the deals. The only one that is in the public domain and has been for a couple of weeks is Esteban Cambiasso. “We’ve not really made too much progress on that as things stand but I’m still hopeful something could be done. It may not be football issues. “It’s slightly more complicated than I’m prepared to discuss.” He added: “Unfortunately at times it’s quite a complicated process. It appears to be a case of various ‘representatives’ coming out of the woodwork so it’s a case of getting to the bottom of who represents who and trying to achieve the goal, which is to add players to the squad. “We’ll have to see what happens. If deals can be done and they are the right people then fine. “I think it’s fair to say we could do with one or two more players to give the squad more strength in depth but that’s not to say I’m not pleased with the players we have already. “But it’s probably going to be important to have one or two more players available to go from window to window.” Leicester travel to Chelsea this weekend on the back of a spirited opening-day draw at home to Everton which Pearson admits has helped ease his side into the new season. “The atmosphere has been good all through pre-season anyway, but it’s just nice to get off to a start in which we’ve learned quite a bit about ourselves and the qualities that are required to perform at this level,” he said. A deal for former Argentina midfielder Esteban Cambiasso has still not been done despite the move dragging on for several weeks, with the Foxes boss unsure whether the signing will be completed. Pearson, who has signed the likes of Leonardo Ulloa, Matt Upson and Marc Albrighton, wants to add depth to his squad before the deadline but concedes the process is “complicated”.
And on the latest edition of Sky Sports’ Revista de La Liga programme, Spanish journalist Guillem Balague claimed the Argentinian would be staying on with his current employers despite having had a “huge offer” from City. However, City sources have categorically denied to Press Association Sport that the club made a bid for Simeone’s services or that they are interested in the 44-year-old. Since Simeone took charge at Atletico in 2011, the trophies they have won include the Europa League and Primera Division, and they have also reached the Champions League final. Chilean Pellegrini guided City to the Barclays Premier League title, victory in the Capital One Cup final and the club’s first-ever participation in the Champions League knock-out rounds last season, his first term in the job. Since then they have suffered a second successive last-16 exit in the continental competition, and in the Premier League – their last hope of silverware in 2014-15 – they are currently second, six points behind Chelsea, who have a game in hand. Manchester City have denied making an offer to, or being interested in, Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone. With City looking set to go trophyless this season, there has been plenty of talk of late about the prospect of manager Manuel Pellegrini being replaced in the summer. Simeone – who Atletico on Tuesday confirmed had signed a new contract with them through to 2020 – had been among those mentioned as a potential successor. Press Association
