White House tells FI regulators to submit rules for review

first_imgThe White House The White House is instructing federal banking regulators and other independent agencies to submit guidance and proposed rules to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) to determine whether it is “major” and will require congressional approval.“One of NAFCU’s key tenets is to support a strong independent NCUA,” said NAFCU Executive Vice President of Government Affairs and General Counsel Carrie Hunt. “While currently, the NCUA submits the majority of its rules and regulations to the Office of Management and Budget for an information collection review prior to implementation, the procedures outlined in the memorandum go further than that. NAFCU shares the goal of the White House to avoid runaway regulation, but wants to ensure that the NCUA can maintain its independence as well.”As an independent agency, the NCUA has traditionally taken the position it does not have to follow White House directives but often voluntarily chooses to do so.

UW softball goes streaking

first_imgView Gallery (2 Photos)Move over 1987 Brewers, because the latest group of nine that could just as easily be referred to as “Team Streak” is this spring’s UW softball team.The Badgers (24-13 overall, 5-5 Big Ten) have won four in a row, eight of their last 10, and head coach Chandelle Schulte has her squad 11 games above the .500 mark for the first time in seven years. But the greatest test of Wisconsin’s fortitude all season will arrive Friday night in the form of the No.10/8 Northwestern Wildcats (33-10, 8-3).Although the entire Badger offense has been clicking during the recent run, no two bats have been quite as hot as those of Sam Polito and Ricci Robben.Since being moved out of the leadoff spot, senior centerfielder Sam Polito has excelled as the second hitter in Wisconsin’s lineup, and rides a career-high 12-game hitting streak into UW’s series with Northwestern. Polito’s streak is the third longest in program history, and is just two games away from Julie Borchard’s all-time record of 14 in 1996 and 1998. During her 12-game run, Polito is hitting .556 (20-for-36) and has scored 15 runs.Sophomore designated hitter Ricci Robben is also streaking at the plate, as her average has climbed 45 points in seven days, and she has batted .588 (10-for-17) in her last six games. During this time she has knocked in eight runs, and currently leads UW with a .366 average.If the Badgers are to continue their winning home stand, however, they’ll have to be able to contend with the likes of Northwestern’s three All-Americans: sophomore infielder Tammy Williams, senior first baseman Garland Cooper and senior pitcher Eileen Canney.Williams’ .457 average leads the Big Ten and she also paces the conference in hits (67), runs scored (54) and total bases (113). But to think Northwestern holds the top spot in just four major offensive categories is to overlook the exploits of NU’s other powerhouse at the plate, Garland Cooper.Cooper has more than made up for any weaknesses Williams may have at the plate by smacking an astounding 18 home runs this season, good enough to give the Wildcats the lead in yet another offensive category. Cooper is also leading the conference in slugging (.856) and RBIs (54) while batting .383.Nevertheless, Schulte won’t have her pitchers throw around any of Northwestern’s big bats.”We’re going to try to make them hit our pitches,” Schulte said. “If they hit it where we throw it and they get a good hit, then so be it. But hopefully we’ll change it up enough so they’re just not sitting on one pitch waiting for it.”In preparing to face Northwestern senior pitcher Eileen Canney, Schulte has made good use of “Black Beauty” — a high-velocity pitching cannon that fires softballs upward of 70 mph — to replicate the kind of heat the Badgers will see.”It throws really hard,” said Schulte of the machine. “So we’re going to work on that, and putting the ball in play a lot. We have a lot of good charts on them, so we’ll kind of go through a game of what we think might happen, and just prepare that way.”last_img read more

D’Angelo Russell discusses uncertain future with Warriors, playing with Stephen Curry

first_imgD’Angelo Russell is surprised he ended up with the Warriors.The 23-year-old guard had been linked to the Timberwolves, Suns and Lakers, amongst others, this offseason but was acquired by Golden State in a sign-and-trade after the Nets landed Kevin Durant. Russell discussed the deal when he met with reporters during his introductory press conference Monday. NBA trade rumors: Grizzlies explore Andre Iguodala market; Rockets, Mavs interested NBA trade news: Warriors send Damian Jones to Hawks for Omari Spellman NBA free agency rumors: Lakers, Warriors among 12 teams attending workout for Amar’e Stoudemire, Monta Ellis “I think it’s something that, you have guys that can shoot, dribble and play make for others. That’s a dangerous combo,” Russell said. “A guy like (Curry), who gets hot anytime throughout the game, it’s something that gives you an advantage throughout the game. To add another guy that can possibly do that, consistently, I think that’s just an extra piece.”D’Angelo Russell on his backcourt partnership with Steph Curry and the idea of a 3-guard lineup with Klay Thompson pic.twitter.com/smNNQwgopZ— Anthony Slater (@anthonyVslater) July 9, 2019Russell had a career year for the Nets last season, averaging 21.1 points and seven assists while shooting 36.9% from 3-point range. He made his first All-Star team, as well.Russell inked a four-year max contract, but many have speculated the Warriors may look to move him for another asset once Thompson returns healthy. “It was a lot of surprises, just all around, throughout free agency,” Russell said, via The Athletic. “So, I think it’s just one to add to it. I knew it was an opportunity, I knew it was something that could possibly be true. We had to wait until a few other pieces did what they did.”Russell is expected to slot into the Warriors backcourt next to star Stephen Curry next season as Klay Thompson continues to recover from the torn ACL he suffered in Game 6 of the NBA Finals against the Raptors. Related News “That’s the business of it. It is what it is,” Russell said. “You put yourself in position to go somewhere for a long period of time and it may not be what it is a year later. That’s the business. I’ve come to the realization of that, I understand that. Whatever situation I’m in, I know the business side of it. We’ll just see. I can’t predict it.”  D’Angelo Russell understands his partnership with the Warriors may or may not last long term: “You put yourself in a position to go somewhere a long time and it might not be what it is a year later.” pic.twitter.com/ITdbIA99y7— Anthony Slater (@anthonyVslater) July 9, 2019The Warriors traded Andre Iguodala to the Grizzlies in order to create salary cap space to add Russell.last_img read more
