Former Rep. Steve LaTourette, the primary Republican sponsor of the 1998 Credit Union Membership Access Act, died Wednesday after a battle with pancreatic cancer.He was 62.LaTourette was instrumental in passing the legislation that opened up credit unions to multiple groups. Rep. Paul Kanjorski (D-Pa.) introduced the legislation in March 1997, but the bill lacked a Republican co-sponsor. Banks were well entrenched with many Republicans at the time, but LaTourette, the 27th ranking member of the House Banking and Financial Services, agreed to join Kanjorski as primary sponsors. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr

The European Securities and Markets Agency (ESMA) has called for a review of the UCITS Directive to account for the central clearing of derivatives required under the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR).The agency, charged with financial market regulation, said, given the impact of the EMIR regulations, the UCITS Directive should be amended to apply the same rules to derivatives that are centrally cleared or exchanged traded.The European Commission has at the same time launched its review of EMIR to produce a general report on the state of the regulation to the European Parliament and Council.Currently, the UCITS Directive allows investments in both exchanged-traded derivatives (ETD) and over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives, but only the latter are subject to counterparty risk-exposure limits. Under the new EMIR regime, certain OTC have to be centrally cleared, which ESMA said raised questions about how the limits to counterparty risk should be calculated for OTC transactions that are centrally cleared, and whether the same rules for OTC trades should also be applied to ETDs.Steven Maijoor, chair at ESMA, said the current UCITS regime needed to change, as it would be unable to account for the central clearing obligation in EMIR.“ESMA, therefore, invites the EU institutions to consider amending the UCITS Directive to make it more compatible with the clearing obligation under EMIR,” he said.The agency said counterparty risk limits should change to match the differing arrangements, and, under individual segregation, the UCITS regime should not apply risk limits but continue to do so under omnibus client segregation.The UCITS Directive is currently on its fifth amendment as of July 2014.The Commission review, to be undertaken via a stakeholder questionnaire, will focus on the delegated acts within EMIR, particularly the section that requires standard derivative contracts to be cleared through central counterparties and the reporting of trades to repositories.In addition to the consultation, the Commission is to hold a public hearing on 29 May in Brussels.Commissioner for Financial Services, Stability and Capital Markets Union, Jonathan Hill, announced the review of EMIR in Edinburgh earlier this year.Pension funds have also been granted an additional two-year exemption from EMIR until August 2017 by the Commission over concerns it would dramatically affect funds’ investment models.At the time, Hill said he understood the concerns of asking pension funds to clear derivatives centrally but said no alternative had yet been found.

London, United Kingdom | AFP | Jose Mourinho has signed a contract extension that will keep him at Manchester United until at least 2020, the club said Thursday, ending rumours he is unhappy at Old Trafford.Mourinho became the first United manager in history to win a major trophy in his first season when he secured the League Cup last year, and he also led the club to victory in the Europa League, the only competition they had never won.Mourinho: “I know the expectations are more. I also know that the industry of the media, the pundits and so on, they look to us with special eyes. But I love to work for the club, for a club with this dimension, with the passion.” #MUFCpic.twitter.com/x7gHmor7Py— Jose Mourinho (@MourinhoNews) January 25, 2018United are a distant second in the Premier League to Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City this season but are still in the FA Cup and the Champions League.“I am really honoured and proud to be Manchester United manager,” Mourinho, 54, said in a club statement.“I would like to say a big thank you to the owners and to (executive vice-chairman) Mr (Ed) Woodward for the recognition of my hard work and dedication. I am delighted they feel and trust that I am the right manager for this great club for the foreseeable future.“We have set very high standards — winning three trophies in one season (including the Community Shield) — but those are the standards I expect my teams to aim for. We are creating the conditions for a brilliant and successful future for Manchester United.”Mourinho, who was appointed in May 2016 on a three-year deal, replaced Louis van Gaal with a brief to return the club to the pinnacle of the English game.The 20-time league champions have not won the Premier League title since Alex Ferguson’s last season in charge in 2012-13.– Workrate –Woodward said the former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss, whose new deal includes an option for a further year, had already achieved a great deal in his time at Old Trafford.“His workrate and professionalism are exceptional and he has embraced the club’s desire to promote top quality young players to the first team,” said Woodward.

Can’t Pay Won’t Pay have condemned the “arrogant and heavy-handed approach” of Irish Water meter contractors who have moved into Letterkenny in force this week.And have pledged their full support for residents who resist metering or remove installed meters.Residents of Thorndale and Elmwood Downs awoke this week to find their footpaths ripped up and Irish Water vans putting in water meters in the area. A spokesman for Can’t Pat Won’t Pay said the residents had been given no notice of the water supply being cut off.“Despite what Irish Water have promised, no notice is being given to residents that their water supplies have been cut off. We have heard from people who have gone to work leaving washing machines or dishwashers on who have been worried that their appliances may have been damaged by the sudden loss of water supply,” said spokesperson Micheál Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuig.“Even where people have made it clear they did not want meters, the contractors have ignored them and continued the installations. Their actions are arrogant and heavy-handed. I have stopped installers on a number of occasions in West Donegal by standing over the connection and I fully support anyone who does the same in Letterkenny. Make it clear you do not want a meter, stand in their way, ask them why they have not given you the required notice. In short, get in their face and make it difficult for them. At the very least it will slow them down and they may decide to move on to where they will get less resistance.”“Where they do succeed, it is easy enough to remove the meter and I encourage people to do it. I believe this is rightful civil disobedience. The government can claim no mandate to implement these charges. There is overwhelming opposition to the charges and they should have scrapped them not modified them.” “It is important to remember that even if they install a meter on your supply, you can still join the boycott. Tens of thousands in Donegal will not pay regardless of whether we have meters or not. In the end it will be the impossibility of getting us all to pay that will make water charges uncollectable and will finally kill them off. Can’t Pay Won’t Pay’s message is: resist metering, support the protests and join the boycott.” ‘CAN’T PAY WON’T PAY’ SLAM ‘HEAVY-HANDED’ APPROACH OF IRISH WATER IN LETTERKENNY was last modified: January 8th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Can’t Pay Won’t PayIrish Waterletterkenny
Read Next Spoelstra picked up the idea from watching Dragic play in Slovenia over the last two summers; fouling to get the ball back, even late in tie games, is more prevalent in European games.In the end, it worked out anyway.“That’s the difference between a head coach enjoying his glass of wine or staying up all night second-guessing every single decision,” Spoelstra said.Wade didn’t seem aware of the plan to foul only if he missed one of the three.“I wanted to foul,” Wade said. “I had confidence in myself that I was going to make all three. They kept running (the same) pick and roll, and it was killing us and I just felt playing the numbers … I wanted the young fella to see, in this environment, what he’s going to do.”Simmons missed the first, made the second. Wade brought the ball downcourt, dribbled left, went behind his back, then to the right, then eventually found his spot to fire over Simmons for what became the gamewinner.“That’s what he does,” 76ers coach Brett Brown said. “That’s who he is. That’s who he’s always been. He just sort of grabbed the team and put it on his back.”Philadelphia used a 16-3 run to open a 33-20 lead in the first half, and Miami answered with an 18-2 run to go up 38-35. From there, a 12-minute stretch of back-and-forth commenced with neither team ever leading by more than three.The 76ers eventually broke through, going up nine late in the third. But they saw the margin cut to 75-73 going into the fourth, after Wade hit a step-back 3 to end the quarter. In the fourth, Philadelphia went up again, this time by 10 — and Miami clawed back again, using an 11-1 run to knot the game on a layup by Wade with 4:57 left.And in the end, Wade came through in the biggest way. In his house, the Heat got a needed win.

The plan that Spoelstra laid out was for the Heat to foul Simmons — a 57 percent foul shooter — if Wade missed one of the three foul shots.
