What is happening and the normalization of violence in any form are not acceptable and need to stop.  The destructive power of words has caused lives to be lost.  For too many years, ignorance and hate have been weaponized against people of color.  This hatred and ignorance are another virus amongst us.We call on all people across The Church to use their voice and power to stop these acts of hatred and racial violence immediately.  We call on all leaders to set an example in their words, their deeds, and all forms of communication to oppose such hatred instead of encouraging it.  We cannot see members of our community as “others” but as people we are in communion with.President Biden in his recent address on Asian discrimination stated, “this has to change, because our silence is complicity. We have to speak out. We have to act.”  We echo the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr: “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends”.  We appreciate and affirm Presiding Bishop Michael Curry’s message calling for the followers of Jesus of Nazareth to “stand up, speak up, and show up when hatred or bigotry is directed at any child of God.”  Today, we stand in solidarity with our Asian siblings, and we are committed to reach out to them, offering kindness and love, so that we can become The Beloved Community.  Acts of racial hatred need to end NOW.Submitted by the Deputies of Color Steering Committee for the 80th General Convention:Asian CaucusRyan Kusumoto, co-chair, Diocese of HawaiiAlan Murray, co-chair, Diocese of OregonCanon Barbara Okamoto Bach, secretary, Diocese of New JerseyWarren Wong, Diocese of CaliforniaBlack CaucusThe Hon.

Arlington Martin drops Paschal, Miracle sees beyond box score

first_imgMitchell Stehlyhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/mitchell-stehly/ Facebook + posts The109: Development plan revealed for Berry Street ReddIt Mitchell Stehly printAfter one quarter of play, the Paschal Panthers and Arlington Martin Warriors were all tied at seven points at AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys.439 rushing yards and 87 points later, the Warriors never looked back en route to a 59-7 halftime lead and a 87-20 win in Arlington.The Panthers (3-7), who played their final 2015 regular season game last night at 7 p.m., did not win a district game this year.First year head coach Matt Miracle said his team has improved since Arlington Martin beat Paschal 86-21 a year prior, despite the similar score.“It was a running clock the entire second half,” Miracle said of the 2014 contest. “So you know, timeouts change of possessions, they just kept the clock running. Which to me is kind of embarrassing.”Miracle said he sees a similarity between what Arlington Martin’s program used to be and what his program is now.“What people forget about Martin is that about ten years ago or maybe even 12 now, before Bob Wager took over, they were similar to the kind of situation we’re in trying to build something special,” Miracle said.However, as Miracle notes, Paschal will have to overcome the obstacles that occur as a smaller school in a big district. Miracle understands that he has a smaller pool of athletes to choose from.“Arlington ISD is a tough match for us because number one, they’ve got less schools so they have more, their populations are larger at every school than what we have,” Miracle said. “We are one of the smallest schools in our district.”Miracle said he was mostly impressed with his team’s performance besides a second quarter that was dominated by the Warriors. Arlington Martin rushed for six touchdowns, recovered another in the end zone and forced a safety on their way to a 59-7 halftime lead.“The kids kept fighting,” Miracle said. “I was really proud of the effort. The way the kids responded after halftime.”And despite the lopsided score, Paschal right tackle Hal Torrez said the experience of playing at AT&T Stadium was well worth it.“We had a great, great experience there,” Torrez said. “It was a lot of fun. Always watched Sundays there.”[View the story “Paschal – Arlington Martin Reaction” on Storify] Twitter Linkedin Facebook Mitchell Stehlyhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/mitchell-stehly/ Mitchell Stehlyhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/mitchell-stehly/ Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature Mitchell Stehlyhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/mitchell-stehly/ Twitter Development plan revealed for Berry/University, some express opposition TCU students finish intramural season, enjoy indoor soccer ReddIt Linkedin Previous articleNew director to head Neighborhood Services DepartmentNext articleBreast cancer focus hits home for many at Mr. ZTA pageant Mitchell Stehly RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Grains to grocery: One bread maker brings together farmers and artisans at locally-sourced store Paschal catcher commits to TCU Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturdaylast_img read more

Rec Center fighting stigma of women and weight lifting

first_imgTCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Facebook Twitter ReddIt Twitter Linkedin Sophia Doumanihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/sophia-doumani/ Students share stories of discrimination + posts Sophia Doumanihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/sophia-doumani/ ReddIt Sophia Doumani Sophia Doumanihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/sophia-doumani/center_img printThe TCU Campus Recreation Center staff is campaigning to encourage women to lift weights.Krista Nussey, who creates posters for the Rec Center, says the gym is almost always split between men in the weight room downstairs and women in the cardio room upstairs.Nussey said when she or other staff members ask the women why they are not going into the weight room, the typical response is because they don’t want to “get buff.”“It really bothers me when I hear comments like that because there is a lot of misinformation,” Nussey said. “Lifting weights is very important in maintaining your posture, keeping you strong and keeping you from getting injured.”Sports psychology major Emma Beserra works in the weight room and is getting certified to be a personal trainer. She said it upsets her when she hears women say they think lifting weights will make them bulky.“It takes so long for muscles to grow,” Beserra said. “If you’re not lifting extremely heavy all of the time and if you’re not eating a surplus of calories every single day you’re not going to be putting on a ton of muscle.”The Rec Center staff hopes that the monthly signs displayed at its’ entrance will combat the stigma that women should not be lifting weights. Nussey said even the most subtle sign can be impactful.“Images play a big role in our subconscious and I think presenting positive images and messages, specifically about women lifting, is very important,” Nussey said.TCU dietitian Lindsey Mathes said she thinks the overly thin women portrayed in media contribute to this fear of being bulky.“It’s important to show women lifting weights because it’s helping to promote the idea that women aren’t suppose to be little stick-thin figures,” said Mathes, who also works as a personal trainer.Mathes said that the health benefits of lifting cannot be matched by anything else.“If we don’t have that muscle to support us we are at risk for osteoporosis,” Mathes said. “Balance, coordination, and agility are all impacted by a lack of muscle.”Beserra said she sees women spending endless hours on cardio machines hoping to lose weight but it won’t help them as much as they think.“When you have more muscle you automatically burn more calories at rest than you would if you didn’t have that muscle,” Beserra said. “When your doing cardio you’re not building your muscle so you’re just burning calories during the workout and not really anytime else.” TCU may become a smoke and tobacco-free campus Sophia is a senior broadcast journalism and communication studies double major.

He has 34 years of combined experience as a former regulator, compliance professional, and consultant. Grundy launched his career as an examiner for the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and later served as an oversight examiner for the Federal Reserve Board in Washington. In addition, he has served as a compliance officer for fintech and traditional banking and financial services organizations. In his current role, he advises banking, credit union, mortgage, student lending, and financial technology clients. Consumer Right to Request ForbearanceSection 4022 of the Act provides that a borrower experiencing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic can request forbearance for a federally backed mortgage loan, regardless of delinquency status. This process occurs through the submission of a request by a borrower to the servicer of his or her mortgage affirming that he or she is experiencing a financial hardship during the COVID–19 emergency. Upon this request by a borrower, the servicer is required to grant forbearance for up to 180 days. The servicer shall extend the duration of the forbearance for an additional period of up to 180 days.Upon receiving a request for forbearance from a borrower, the law provides that a servicer shall grant the request with no additional documentation required other than the borrower’s attestation to a financial hardship caused by the COVID–19 emergency. The law explicitly provides that during the period of forbearance “no fees, penalties, or interest beyond the amounts scheduled or calculated as if the borrower made all contractual payments on time and in full under the terms of the mortgage contract” can be assessed on the borrower. Servicers should be careful to comply with this prohibition. Governance processes and system-driven controls must ensure that no fees, penalties, or interest beyond the amounts scheduled or calculated—as if the borrower made all contractual payments on time and in full under the terms of the mortgage contract¬—are charged.These controls must remain fully established in connection with the 180-day forbearance period, as well as an extension for an additional period of up to 180 days, provided that the request is made during the covered period (although not specifically defined in the law, it presumably means during the original 180-day period) and that at the borrower’s request, either the initial or extended period of forbearance may be shortened. The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Payoff StatementsThe FAQs address the question of whether servicers can take more than seven business days to provide a payoff statement due to operational challenges brought on by the pandemic. The FA Q s state that while the servicer does not need to provide the statement within seven business days, it should be provided within a “reasonable time.” Short-Term Loss Mitigation OptionsRegulation X generally requires servicers to obtain a complete loss-mitigation application before evaluating a mortgage borrower for a loss-mitigation option, such as a loan modification or short sale. However, the FA Q stipulate that CARES Act forbearance qualifies as a “short-term repayment forbearance program” under Regulation X. A servicer may offer a short-term payment forbearance program or a short-term repayment plan to a borrower, based upon an evaluation of an incomplete loss mitigation application. The FA Q s go a step further in stating that a servicer may offer any loss-mitigation options to a borrower who has not submitted an application at all. The FA Q s address communications requirements associated with short-term payment forbearance. The FAQs provide that “until further notice” servicers will not be cited in an examination or that the agencies intend to take supervisory or enforcement action for failing to provide acknowledgement notice within the five days of application for forbearance. The only qualifier is that servicers should make a good faith effort to provide notices and take the related actions within a reasonable time.Subsequent notices provided to the borrower provide information detailing the specific payment terms; duration of the program or plan; that the program or plan is based on an evaluation of an incomplete application; that other loss mitigation options may be available, and that the borrower has the option to submit a complete loss-mitigation application to receive an evaluation for all available options, regardless of whether the borrower accepts the short-term program or plan.  Servicers are required to provide the second communication in cases where the borrower remains delinquent near the end of the forbearance program or repayment plan. The servicer must contact the borrower prior to the end of the forbearance period and determine whether the borrower needs to complete the loss-mitigation application and proceed with a full loss-mitigation evaluation. The CFPB allows servicers the flexibility to add language to the subsequent notices to clarify why they are offering short-term options and to help avoid borrower confusion. The FA Q s state that servicers are under no requirement to tailor the first or second communications and may use similar content to conserve resources during the pandemic. Early Intervention Requirements Four questions relative to early intervention requirements are addressed in the FA Q s. The first two questions address whether servicers are required to comply with live contact requirements and early intervention written notice requirements, and they clarify the associated timelines in Regulation X, 12 CFR 1024.39(a) and (b). Similar to the agencies’ position on notifications, compliance with live contact and provision of the 45-day letter is generally expected. The FA Q s clarify that the agencies have agreed that they do not intend to cite in an examination or bring an enforcement action against servicers for delays in establishing or making good faith efforts to establish live contact and provide written notice.The focus during the pandemic is on “good faith efforts” which, the FA Q s clarify, consist of “reasonable steps, under the circumstances” that are defined as “calling the borrower on more than one occasion or sending written or electronic communication encouraging the borrower to establish live contact with the servicer.” The FAQs also contextualize what might constitute good faith, suggesting that the servicer should consider the length of a borrower’s delinquency, as well as a borrower’s failure to respond to a servicer’s repeated attempts at communication. Servicers will be considered in compliance with the early intervention live contact requirements if the servicer has established and is maintaining ongoing contact with a borrower under the loss mitigation procedures. The FAQs remind that live contact requirements are not applicable when a borrower is performing as agreed under a loss mitigation.The third and fourth questions address whether a servicer must comply with early intervention, live contact, and written notice requirements if the borrower is participating in CARES Act forbearance. The FAQs explain that the answers to these questions depend on circumstances, noting that borrowers can request a CARES Act forbearance regardless of delinquency status. More direct to the point here is that if the borrower is delinquent, the servicer must comply with early intervention requirements. Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Continuity of Contact RequirementsThe FA Q s recognize that servicers may experience customer service call center staffing challenges due to the pandemic. As such, assigning a “single point of contact” to each delinquent borrower may prove difficult. The FA Q s grant some flexibility on this requirement, stating that “servicers must maintain policies and procedures reasonably designed to assign personnel to a delinquent borrower that can assist the borrower with loss mitigation options” and that a “servicer has discretion to determine whether to assign a single person or a team of personnel.” Is Your Program CARES Act Compliant? Move for foreclosure judgment or order of sale or conduct a foreclosure sale in the case of a borrower who is performing pursuant to the terms of a loss mitigation agreement.The FAQs also remind that small servicers are subject to and must comply with the payoff statement provisions in Regulation Z, 12 CFR 1026.36(c)(3). 2020-07-08 Mike Albanese Subscribe Annual Escrow StatementThe FAQs, in response to the question of whether servicers must conduct the annual escrow analysis and send annual escrow statements required by Regulation X, stipulates that the answer is yes. This response recognizes that escrow statements may generate call volume and contribute to borrower anxiety. As with earlier questions, the agencies do not intend to cite in an examination or bring an enforcement action against servicers for delays in sending the annual escrow statement—provided servicers make a good faith effort within a reasonable time. The agencies suggest that servicers inform the borrower that they are forgoing collection for several months on any shortage or deficiency. The FA Q s provide a reminder of the exemption from providing an annual escrow account statement when a borrower is more than 30 days past due. For borrowers who are subsequently reinstated and return to current status, servicers must provide a history of the account since the last annual statement within 90 days of the account’s reinstatement date to current status.

This was a joint statement by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, National Credit Union Administration, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, and Conference of State Bank Supervisors whereby they formally recognized the serious impact of the COVID-19 emergency on consumers and on the operations of many supervised entities, including mortgage servicers. The agencies stated an understanding that the COVID-19 crisis could impose temporary business disruptions and staffing challenges, thereby impeding the ability of lenders and servicers to assist consumers.Moreover, the agencies are emphasizing the potential for consumer confusion about how to access and exercise options offered by mortgage servicers. In issuing the Joint Statement, the agencies clarified the application of the mortgage servicing rules under Regulation X and established expectations for supervision and enforcement relative to the rules on short-term options as the industry works through the covered period. Coinciding with the release of the Joint Statement, the CFPB issued it’s Mortgage Servicing Rules FAQs related to the COVID-19 Emergency. The FA Q s support the Joint Statement by addressing common questions and themes. While not a substitute for Regulation X, Regulation Z, or the associated official interpretations, the FA Q s provide focus for helping servicers managing burgeoning requests from borrowers for help. This story originally appeared in the July edition of DS News. The COVID-19 pandemic has thrust the world into an unimaginably difficult situation. Though authors of science fiction may try, no one could have fully anticipated the scale and speed with which the pandemic would impact the economy. For mortgage lenders and servicers, the pandemic will prove to be a test of business continuity planning while managing processes and regulatory changes in real time, all while maintaining fairness and compliance across all aspects of day-to-day operations.The CARES Act (Pub. L. No. 116-136) was enacted on March 27, 2020, to provide financial assistance and other types of relief as the negative economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic set in across the country. The consumer finance provisions under Title IV of the Act directly address helping Americans struggling to make mortgage payments due to the economic slowdown caused by the pandemic. These provisions cover “federally-backed mortgage loans,” which are defined under the Act as any loan that is secured by a first or subordinate lien on residential real property designed principally for the occupancy of from one-to-four families that is:insured by the Federal Housing Administration or under the National Housing Act;guaranteed or insured by the Department of Veterans Affairs or the Department of Agriculture; orpurchased or securitized by the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation or the Federal National Mortgage Association. For servicers of mortgages not covered by the CARES Act, the provisions of the Act serve as guidance applicable to servicers helping millions of borrowers with covered loans. Given the profound impact of the pandemic across all sectors of the economy and its 24-hour coverage in the news, consumers are aware of the assistance made available by theHowever, awareness of important details is generally lost on the average consumer. Thus, for servicers of non-federally backed mortgages, it is likely that the calls will come in large volume from borrowers seeking help from loan servicers. Helping borrowers stay in their homes and maintain their lives generally yields a positive outcome over the long haul for borrowers, lenders, local economies, and the government. Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Foreclosure MoratoriaSection 4022(c)(2) of the Act further provided that servicers of federally backed mortgage loans could not initiate any judicial or nonjudicial foreclosure process, move for a foreclosure judgment or order of sale, or execute a foreclosure-related eviction or foreclosure sale for not less than the 60-day period beginning on March 18, 2020, which has been extended by federal housing agencies until August 31, 2020. The Act provided an exception for a vacant or abandoned property. It is always prudent to closely monitor foreclosure and collection policies, procedures, and actual practices to ensure fairness and appropriate customer treatment at all times. Exemptions for Small ServicersTo the question of whether small servicers  are subject to the requirements, the FA Q s provide that small servicers do not have to comply with the early intervention and continuity of contact requirements. Small servicers must comply with the foreclosure restrictions of Regulation X, 12 CFR 1024.41(j), as well as the escrow requirements of Regulation X, 12 CFR 1024.17. With respect to foreclosure restrictions, the FAQs make it clear that small servicers shall not:Provide the first notice or filing required to foreclose, unless theBorrower’s mortgage loan obligation is more than 120 days delinquent, Trying Times These are truly unprecedented times. Consumers are facing difficult choices. As the Joint Statement underscores, mortgage servicers play a vital role in assisting consumers in providing options for paying their mortgages. The current crisis presents potential financial challenges to borrowers; the CARES Act Section 4022 and 4023 are intended to provide some measure of related relief. However, there is a risk of confusion for borrowers, lenders, and mortgage servicers. The flexibility that the agencies can offer pursuant to the Joint Statement, and as further clarified by the CFPB’s FA Q s, helps to reduce the immediate regulatory risk and pressure. The focus is on making a good faith effort to respond to the needs of borrowers.However, mortgage servicers must make certain that their existing Regulation X related compliance practices for loss mitigation are appropriately modified in light of the guidance set forth in the Act and the guidance published by the agencies. Given the stress of the times we’re living through, it is vital to not lose sight of the fact that these efforts must be fulfilled in a fair and responsible manner. Through reasonable efforts to maintain a tone of fairness and compassion; to ensure that governance is up to date with regulatory guidance; that processes and system controls are in alignment; and that reasonable monitoring of workflows and production output is conducted, the mortgage servicing industry can and must move forward. While resources may be stressed, keep an eye to the future, knowing that the metrics of the current period will tell the story of the good faith effort made.DISCLAIMER: The information and views set forth in this piece are general in nature and are not intended as legal or professional advice.

“Intruder” enters St Anne’s accommodation

first_imgAccommodation belonging to St Anne’s College has suffered a break-in.An unidentified individual was seen entering college property through an open window, after climbing the building’s drainpipe.In an email to all St Anne’s students, Martin Jackson, the Domestic Bursar, described how a “young man” was seen “climbing up the drainpipe of one of the student buildings and entering the room via an open bedroom window”.Despite immediately searching the building, the Lodge porters were unable to find anyone. Jackson stated that as the student whose window had been left open confirmed that he did not climb up the drainpipe himself, he could therefore “deduce that it was an intruder”.He urged St Anne’s students to step up their vigilance for the safety of the rest of the college. His email stressed the need to “protect yourself and your colleagues”.He requested that, as an “elementary precaution”, students living in road-facing rooms in college accommodation not on the main college site keep their windows closed when not in their room.He added that the student whose room was entered via the open window was “in the habit of doing this at all times” but stated that “this will no longer happen”.The incident is the latest in a series of security breaches at the college.A tramp recently broke in to one of the college houses on Woodstock Road and was found in the kitchen eating the occupant’s food.Another third year student at the college stated that the security at the college is insufficient. She cited as an example an occasion last Trinity when a female student’s ex-boyfriend visited the college and requested the location of the student’s room, and the code necessary to enter her building.The porters readily gave him this information, despite having no proof of the student’s identity or of his association with the female student.The porters refused to discuss the incident of last week, or comment on the quality of the security at the college.However, several students have expressed their distress at the situation and expressed their belief in the need for security at the college to be tightened.One fourth year said, “It’s really lax”, adding that “pretty much anyone can walk in and the porters hardly bat an eyelid”Another third year complained that the security “could definitely be a lot tighter”.However, JCR Vice-President Tom Lockton, JCR Vice President, denied that the security needed improvement, and instead praised it as “absolutely brilliant”.No college officials were available to comment.last_img read more

Radcliffe Science Library set to close until summer 2021

first_imgBooks that have not been borrowed in the last two years will be held in the Bodleian book storage facility offsite, but students and researchers will be able to request them for delivery via SOLO to be put back on open shelves. The RSL is the main teaching and research science library at the university, and the library holds the Legal Deposit material for all MPLS and medical disciplines. One part of the library, the Jackson Wing, is Grade II listed. It gains its name from John Radcliffe, a major benefactor of the University. The 26,000 books in the RSL collection that have been borrowed in the last two years will be temporarily relocated to the Vere Harmsworth Library during the Christmas vacation, from which all science library services will be delivered until May/June 2021. Bodleian Libraries has revealed that these books were moved offsite during the recent summer vacation. The Radcliffe Science Library (RSL) is set to close from January 2020 until summer 2021, as revealed by Bodleian Libraries in new plans. The college will share its building with the Radcliffe Science Library, and from its reopening in 2021, the library shelves will also include Parks College collections. The redevelopment of the site will also include the western wing of the Organic Chemistry Laboratory and Abbot’s Kitchen. The Vere Harmsworth Library is located on the upper floors of the Rothermere American Institute on South Parks Road, and is Oxford University’s principal research library for American Studies. The refurbishments are part of the planned Parks College Development, which will establish a new graduate college on the Parks Road site, in the heart of the University Science Area. Plans to use the Science Library as the site for Parks College were announced in December 2018. The historic RSL will remain in the building on the second floor, but the first floor will be instead dedicated to Parks College administration and social spaces, including a function room, dining hall and lounge. The Radcliffe Science Library was first established in 1861. The current building was opened in 1901, and the Library was integrated into the Bodleian Library in 1927. Bodleian Libraries have been contacted for comment.last_img read more
