CFPB officially rescinds arbitration rule

first_imgThe CFPB today published its action in the Federal Register to remove the bureau’s final arbitration rule from the federal code, effective immediately. The notice comes after President Donald Trump signed a congressional joint resolution disapproving of the rule earlier this month.Released in July, the CFPB’s final arbitration rule would have prohibited the use of clauses that prevent consumers from entering into class action litigation, so-called “class action waivers.”Under the Congressional Review Act, legislators can vote to overrule new federal regulations with a joint resolution of disapproval within 60 legislative days after regulators have submitted the rule to Congress. The House passed the resolution disapproving of the arbitration rule in July, and the Senate passed the resolution at the end of October. continue reading » 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Liverpool cannot match Chelsea spending power – Kloop

first_imgSpeaking ahead of Saturday’s Premier League opener against Leeds United, Klopp told BBC Radio 5 Live: “Clubs are in different situations and we are living in uncertainty in the world.“For some clubs it seems to be less important how uncertain the future is because they are owned by countries, owned by oligarchs, and that is the truth.“We are a different kind of club. We reached the Champions League final two years ago, won it the following year and won the Premier League by being the club we are.“We cannot change that overnight and say ‘now we want to behave like Chelsea’.”Instead of buying in talent since their long wait for Premier League title glory ended in June, Liverpool are looking to maximise their existing resources, bringing on emerging talents such as Harvey Elliott, Curtis Jones and Neco Williams, and hoping January recruit Takumi Minamino flourishes in the new campaign.They had been strongly linked with Werner, but ultimately the young Germany striker went from RB Leipzig to Chelsea. Liverpool’s most notable signing has been Kostas Tsimikas from Olympiacos – a player who looks set to be understudy at left-back to Andy Robertson.Yet Liverpool’s title-winning side from last season remains largely intact, and amid the coronavirus crisis that has left many clubs strapped for cash, Klopp sees the need for caution.While Chelsea have the backing of Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, and Manchester City have huge financial resources thanks to their Abu Dhabi owners, Liverpool are reluctant to take big transfer plunges in the current climate.

Donegal businesses voice concerns over Capital Plan for 2040

first_imgBusinesses in the North-West have voiced their concerns over the slow pace of progress with significant capital projects and called for accelerated delivery of the National Development Plan.The groups voiced their concerns at a meeting with local public representatives.The meeting was held at the Pramerica Offices in Letterkenny. Businesses say they need to support balanced growth and job creation across the entire country.In particular, they are calling for the recent corporate tax windfall to be directed towards much-needed infrastructure to position the regional economy to grow.Ibec North West Regional President Cormac Kearns said: “Businesses are anxious to see progress in the delivery of Project Ireland 2040 as challenges around peripherality and connectivity intensify. The delivery of strategic road infrastructure will help improve inter-urban and inter-regional connectivity and offer greater accessibility that will drive growth.“Investment in education and skills should also be viewed as a key infrastructure priority that will help support continued business growth in the region. “The country is currently enjoying windfall corporate tax revenue and there is an opportunity to invest in much-needed infrastructure, improve overall quality of life and position the regional economy to grow.  Delays on infrastructure have significant costs and pose a real threat to economic growth and damage competitiveness. Unless we deliver the infrastructure, the region will continue to develop at a slower pace.”Mr Kearns added: “With a disorderly Brexit looking increasingly likely and with regions being most vulnerable in this scenario, fast-tracking infrastructure investment is more vital than ever. We must invest ambitiously and deliver on committed projects as urgently as possible.”Donegal businesses voice concerns over Capital Plan for 2040 was last modified: October 2nd, 2019 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)last_img read more

World Cup visitors fall for Joburg

first_img24 June 2010It’s Ayoba! – an exuberant South African expression of delight or approval – that’s the general feeling for the City of Gold from the foreigners streaming to Johannesburg to watch the football.Joburg has been bustling and buzzing with football fervour since the World Cup kicked off, and international visitors are to be seen at almost every corner.Hanging with some foreigners in Ellis Park recently, they spoke about how well they were settling in Joburg, a city of contrasts that doesn’t get much favourable publicity internationally.Among all the World Cup tourists, the Americans are an extremely enthusiastic and gregarious bunch. Contrary to stereotypes of brash, loud-mouthed arrogant snobs, they seem to have settled in well in Joburg and have even learned about local culture.Fan feverBefore the USA-Slovenia game, Ryan Littman-Quim from Boston, Massachusetts worked up some fan fever under a tree near the west entrance to Ellis Park.He was hanging with a group of his countrymen, face painters, and having his face painted for the game. From under the tree, they played the African concord drum, sang, yelled and blew the vuvuzela, clearly drumming up support for their national side ahead of kickoff.Their jovial mood and excitement was palpable and almost every Joburger who entered the stadium from this gate stopped by to either shout “USA baby” or have their faces painted in bright USA colours. The brouhaha of drums, vuvuzelas and squeals of excitement caused a ripple effect, and everyone joined the party.Surprisingly, Littman-Quim is soaking up local culture during his stay, with his vuvuzela probably his first item of African World Cup memorabilia. He’s even tasted local cuisine and learned a few colloquial phrases, something somewhat unexpected.‘Yes, we can!’One of his compatriots, draped in USA regalia, delightedly shouted when he saw Littman-Quim’s T-shirt, which had a picture of President Barrack Obama. “We love this man,” he said, and the group broke into a euphoric scream of Obama’s famous election campaign words: “Yes, we can, yuuhuuu!”Clearly, the American lot were full of high-spirited mirth. Asked to describe Joburg in a single phrase, Littman-Quim fell silent, stepping back and forth. “Aaaah,” he said for a few seconds, and then it came to him: “Ayoba? Is that alright,” he answered in a rich American accent.Although he was staying with a friend in Pretoria, north of Joburg for the World Cup, Joburg felt more like home, he said. He compared the city, with its allure, its ambiance, picturesque landscape and skyline, ingenious and friendly people, world-class stadiums and vibey atmosphere to New York, a concrete jungle where any dream can come true.Similarly, Johannesburg is the most populous city in the country and is its economic powerhouse, where deals are sealed, dreams are realised and there is plenty of entertainment; there’s nothing you can’t do – and Littman-Quim likes this.‘This is a cool place’“[Joburg] people are very friendly and this is a cool place. I was in Soweto the other day at Elkah stadium at the Fifa Fan Fest™ for the Bafana Bafana match against Uruguay. It was cool man. The locals are friendly; it’s a nice place,” he said.He also poured scorn on international reports of Joburg being a dangerous place. “I think all that is rubbish. This is a friendly city. You just have to know your way around, just like in New York.”The American has had the hair on his abdomen and chest artistically shaved into a map of the United States, to show how patriotic he is. Draped with their country’s colours and with faces painted alike, the group managed to sway most passing locals to support their national team.Ghanaian perspectiveLoud and happy as they were, the Americans were not the only foreigners in Ellis Park. Kabwe, from Ghana, is a bulky yet humble chap. A little shy, he pointed out that his English was not good. “My English is little bit bad,” he said. “If you need, I speak in French, my home language.”Still, he was keen to speak about Jozi. “It’s not the first time to come to Johannesburg,” he pointed out. “I come every time, after six months I come, after six months I come, but now I come just for the game and next week I go home,” he said confidently, despite his broken English.Of the city of gold, or Jozi as locals prefer to call it, he said uncertainly: “The World Cup is fine, everything is fine, I’m happy,” before disappearing into the clamour of the stadium.Another visitor, George Mashigo, is a Cameroonian national who has so endeared himself to local culture, he’s even changed his surname. Looking happy, he asked for his picture to be taken with the raucous Americans. After a few snapshots, he talked incessantly about his penchant for football.Loads of match ticketsHe had bought loads of match tickets, he said – more than 18 to be precise, and he’s watching every game in a different province. “I drive to a different match every day. Yesterday I was in Bloemfontein, today I’m in Joburg,” he said in an unmistakably Cameroonian accent, his football regalia testament to his nationality.Mashigo lives in Pretoria, but works in Johannesburg.“Ellis Park is a fantastic place but not as good as Soccer City, the main place to be, hey. I’m watching [more than] 18 games, one every day. I’ll take a break and then I’ll watch the semifinals and the quarterfinals, but I’m looking for the finals ticket. Have you got the final ticket?”Despite not having any luck getting tickets to the finals, he reiterated: “Joburg is a fantastic place, I must say.”Source: City of Johannesburglast_img read more

first_imgNew Delhi, Nov 25 (PTI) Mariamma Koshy has taken charge of Hockey India (HI) as president with immediate effect, replacing Narinder Dhruv Batra who was recently elected as the first ever non European chief of the sports governing body FIH. HI announced that Koshy will head the national body in the 41st Hockey India Executive Board meeting held today. HI Secretary General, Mohd. Mushtaque Ahmad, has now taken over as the chairman of the Hockey India League Governing Board. These decisions have come in the light of Batra stepping down from his position due to his historic election in the (FIH). Batra could not hold both the posts at HI and FIH, thus he stepped down. Todays decisions will require ratification in the Hockey India Congress to be held soon. Batra served as HI secretary general from 2010 to 2014 and was president since 2014. He also resigned from his post as chairman of the Hockey India League. Speaking on the development, Batra said, “it gives me a great sense of achievement to see the independent development of Hockey India as a governing body for the sport. “The organisation has been and will continue to be run by professionals headed by CEO Elena Norman and having Mariamma Koshy as its new president, I am sure we will reach new heights of success in popularising the sport in India as I take on the mantle to do the same on a global level.” Earlier this month, Batra made history after becoming the the first Indian and fifteenth president of FIH.
