Success often bodes controversy and that is expected to hold true for credit unions this year. While many institutions were able to grow their membership, loans, quality of assets and earnings, these successful steps forward might push lawmakers to enact limiting policies and regulations. Here are some hurdles credit unions can expect in 2019.TaxationBack in 2017, credit unions fought for their tax-exempt status and came out on top, however, that was not the last of the conversation. Since then, the tax status of credit unions has been brought up on several occasions as banks and lawmakers question whether credit unions should maintain their exemption in spite of their growth. An Iowa bill failed that would have increased the taxes that the state’s credit unions pay, however, banks were impressed by its success up to that point. The bill passed in the Iowa state senate but ultimately failed to pass after it was rejected by the house.
By Sudipto GangulyMUMBAI, India (Reuters) – Murali Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara shared a century stand as India made a strong start in their reply to England’s total of 400 on the second day of the fourth Test at the Wankhede Stadium yesterday.Vijay was unbeaten on 70 and Pujara on 47 not out with India on 146 for one at the close, still 254 runs behind.The right-handed pair added 107 runs for the second wicket after Lokesh Rahul had fallen following an opening stand of 39 with Vijay.England captain Alastair Cook introduced spin from both ends after seven overs and there was considerable turn on offer for Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid.Rahul hit four crisp boundaries in his 24 before off-spinner Moeen breached his defences to bowl him.Vijay twice mishit Rashid but the ball landed safely beyond the reach of the fielders on both occasions. The opener hit the leg-spinner for six over the long-off boundary.Pujara looked solid and hit some sublime boundaries off the back foot against the England fast bowlers.Earlier, Jos Buttler made 76 to guide the touring side, trailing 2-0 in the five-match series, to a strong total before they were all out 25 minutes after lunch.India off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin completed figures of six for 112 for his 23rd five-wicket haul and left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja took the other four wickets.Resuming on 288 for five, England lost Ben Stokes for 31 in the third over to Ashwin, who had picked up four wickets on Thursday.The umpire turned down the appeal for catch against Stokes but India managed to overturn the decision on review with the batsman leaving the field making his displeasure evident.Jadeja dismissed Chris Woakes and Rashid cheaply to boost India’s chances of keeping England’s total to under 350.But Buttler and number 10 Jake Ball, playing his first match of the series and second overall, frustrated India with a partnership of 54 for the ninth wicket.Ashwin broke the stand when Ball, who was on nought when India captain Virat Kohli dropped a sharp chance at slip off Jadeja, was caught behind.Buttler repeatedly used the reverse sweep against Jadeja and hit six boundaries and a big six off Ashwin before Jadeja bowled him as he attempted another big shot.ENGLAND 1st innings (overnight 288-5)A.

Imani Clark finished right behind her in fourth at 23.94 seconds. In the 4×400-meter relay, the team of Danielle Delgado, Alexis Harper, Tia Thevenin and Sellers placed fifth overall with a time of 3:40.78.On the men’s side, the best performances came in the high jump and 60-meter hurdles. In the high jump, Randall Johnson finished fourth at a height of 1.95 meters. The only Syracuse men’s runner to qualify for the 60-meter hurdles final was Chevis Armstead, who finished fourth in men’s hurdles with a time of 8.09 seconds. The team of Jamil Adams, Pascal Bastien, Armstead and Matt Moore placed sixth in the 4×400 relay with a time of 3:16.97.Next weekend, the Orange will head to Boston again for the 2018 BU David Hemery Valentine Invitational.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on February 3, 2018 at 7:41 pm Contact Eric: [email protected]
Embed from Getty ImagesChris Hughton has denied reports that Brighton have made a move to try to sign Moussa Dembele from Celtic.The striker has been linked with a number of clubs since joining the Glasgow side from Fulham.Speaking after his team’s 2-0 defeat at Chelsea, Seagulls boss Hughton insisted no approach had been made by his club for Dembele.“Certainly as the manager of the football club I’m sure I would know, but there certainly has not been contact between the clubs, so that’s classed as speculation,” Hughton said.“As we get to January the names are going to be thick and fast, but at the moment they are all speculation.”Hughton’s team defended resolutely at Stamford Bridge but Chelsea broke the deadlock courtesy of Alvaro Morata’s header 52 seconds into the second half.Marcos Alonso’s goal on the hour mark sealed a deserved win for the Blues.“The game went as we would have expected, with them having a lot of possession,” Hughton said.“What disappointed me most was the timing of the first goal and the fact that the second was from a set piece.” Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook

West Ham midfielder Snodgrass announces international retirementby Paul Vegas10 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveWest Ham midfielder Robert Snodgrass has retired from international duty with Scotland.Steve Clarke’s side are not going to qualify for Euro 2020 through the conventional route, but are set to play in a Nations League semi-final play-off in March, which could have given Snodgrass the chance to create a legacy for his country.Despite that, the West Ham man has hung up his Scotland boots at the age of 32, taking to Instagram to confirm that he would be stopping at 28 caps. He said: “Thank you for giving me the opportunity to live my childhood dream.”It’s now the right time for me to step aside, though, and retire from international duty and let the boys and younger players take my place and hopefully push the squad forward.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
Placing second at the 2012 ITA All-American Championships Sunday in Tulsa, Okla., Ohio State men’s tennis’ redshirt junior Peter Kobelt is more than pleased with his performance on the Case Tennis Center courts.“I was very happy with my performance, I beat five guys who are high on their respective team’s line-ups,” Kobelt said. “Being able to put five matches together like that and play that long in the tournament shows that I have been doing the right things over the summer training-wise and conditioning-wise. It was really nice to see.”The New Albany, Ohio, native won five matches, two of which were against top 10-ranked players. Kobelt fell in the singles finale to No. 6-seeded Alex Domijan of Virginia, 7-5, 6-1.Kobelt attributed his wins to his serving strengths and mobility.“I was serving at a very high percentage for serves and I was able to get around and hit a lot of forehands in the beginning to control the court,” Kobelt said.Coach Ty Tucker said he was impressed with Kobelt’s finish.“Obviously it was very strong, to finish No. 2 in the nation at that tournament is big,” Tucker said. “It’s the first time we have had a player finish in the individual All-American singles.”The redshirt junior also played in the doubles bracket beside senior Connor Smith, but the duo left Tulsa, Okla., without a doubles title after falling in the second round of competition.“We played OK, but we came up short, we played a tough team and it was bad weather,” Smith said. “It was only pro sets so it was tough, but we came out a bit slow.”In addition to finishing second in the nation this week, Kobelt is ranked as the No. 35 tennis player in the countrybut he said he was not sure of the ranking at first.“I had a general idea on where I would be from last season with the ongoing seniors that left,” Kobelt said. “I don’t know how comfortable I was, I had an OK season but I wasn’t too confident right from the beginning.”Tucker said Kobelt’s ranking has come as a result of the player utilizing his strengths as a player.“His biggest strengths are his serve and the fact that he is a junior now, but a redshirt junior, so it’s his fourth year and he knows what is expected of him,” Tucker said. “He knows what kind of game he has and what he needs to do.”Kobelt and the Buckeyes are scheduled to travel to East Lansing, Mich., on Oct. 18, to compete in the USTA/ITA Midwest Regional Championships.
