It reflects the Treasury Department’s recommendations released in April 2018 and the feedback gathered by the Federal Reserve,” said Otting.According to Reuters, regulators are trying to update rules in the 1977 Community Reinvestment Act, which requires regulators to assess how well banks are serving the needs of lower-income areas.

I’ve already learned a lot  and I’m continuing to learn. I’m working hard to gain the confidence and trust of all our people.“We have a community of caring individuals that love and respect each other. That doesn’t mean that we don’t have undesirable behavior in Brundidge.

first_img Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos. The age-old battle for equality goes onI have a large file on my desk marked ‘equality’. Currently, I am working myway through it to ensure my organisation is ready to comply with the lawsgoverning all forms of discrimination. So far, I am happy to say I haven’t discovered any huge discrepancies of paybetween the genders – but then I am only a quarter of the way through the file.It is a hard slog, despite my belief in equal rights. So I took a night off tovisit the Queen’s theatre in London. On the advice of a Personnel Today journalist – the one who calls me at oneminute to noon every Monday to harangue me for my column – I saw a play calledThe Tamer Tamed. It was written by a man called John Fletcher (1579 – 1625)about 20 years after The Taming of the Shrew. Penned as a sequel and with theblessing of Shakespeare himself, Fletcher charts the second marriage of thecentral male character Petruchio (his first wife died after he brought her toheel). Petruchio is reduced from a beer-swilling, arrogant pig into a doting,empathetic husband after Wife Two decides she is simply not putting up with hissexist behaviour. In desperation, he fakes symptoms of the plague, but sheoutwits him, sparks a small but powerful women’s revolt and comes outvictorious. Extraordinary, but also utterly shameful for today’s society that a playwritten in the 17th century virtually airs line by line the same equalitydebate that still rages on today. Pay inequities, for example, remain a particular problem. But how manyorganisations are doing something about it? Not many, I’ll bet. By now youshould be conducting equal pay audits, not simply ignoring the whole issuebecause it’s just too big to face up to, and your board can’t work out how tomake the books balance if you discover some huge shortfalls. C’mon HR: this is a call to arms. It’s up to us to champion equal pay onceand for all. Are you on board?

Menendez to be retried, says Politico

May 2, 2021

first_imgHUDSON COUNTY – In a report broken by Politico, federal prosecutors announced that they will retry U.S. Senator Robert Menendez, after a deadlocked jury in November resulted in a mistrial.Annalou Tirol, acting chief of the public integrity section of the Justice Department, announced that the trial would take place as soon as possible.“Defendants Robert Menendez and Salomon Melgen have been indicted for bribery and corruption by two separate grand juries properly impaneled in the District of New Jersey,” Tirol said in the Politico account. “The first trial ended in a mistrial with a deadlocked jury. An early retrial date is in the best interests of the public, and the United States is available to schedule a retrial at the Court’s earliest convenience.”Menendez, a Democrat, is running for reelection as U.S. Senator this year, and this prosecution is set against a backdrop in which control of the U.S. Senate is at state. Republicans currently have two vote majority.Federal authorities allege Menendez did political favors for Melgen, a Florida eye doctor, in exchange for gifts such as private jet flights and significant campaign contributions.Melgen, who has been convicted on other separate counts, has yet to be sentenced, and some political observers believe the federal authorities may seek to offer him a plea deal on the earlier case to testify against Menendez in the upcoming trial.The hung jury in the first trial voted 10 to 2 to acquit Menendez, suggesting they did not believe the prosecution’s case as it was presented.last_img read more

Trashing trashcans

May 2, 2021

first_imgBRUCE KOWAL To the Editor:A drive around Bayonne after trash pickup reveals not only sloppiness in the basic task, i.e. trash on streets, but also the wreckage inflicted upon homeowners’ wallets measured by destroyed trashcans. How do these get so mangled? How can the infrequent use of plastic trashcans end up in the ripping and tearing of them?And why on Earth does the city still contract with the Rosselle and its crew of vandals? Do we have any recourse? How about an ordinance allowing citizens to sue Roselle for damage to personal property? Take photos on trash pickup day and use that as evidence in small claims court. How about someone from the mayor’s office coming up with an estimate of the aggregate cost to residents for purchases of new trashcans each year? Plus the damage to civic pride as these vandals — that’s what you call people who gleefully and wantonly destroy property — cause no small amount of frustration, as well as feelings of violation.Does anyone at city hall take responsibility for this? Where else can people get paid to destroy property and insult their employers, the taxpayers?last_img read more
