NCUA bans two former CU employees in Texas & Washington

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr The NCUA on Monday banned Soundra Lopez, a former vice president of lending, and Latrese Williams, a former member services representative, from ever participating in the affairs of a federally-insured financial institution.Seven months before the $47 million County & Employees Credit Union in Edinburg, Texas was liquidated by state regulators in October 2014, Lopez, along with two other employees, sued the credit union in March 2014 claiming they had not been paid overtime hours.The NCUA, which was named the credit union’s conservator, denied Lopez’s overtime claims. What’s more, in a 2017 court filing in U.S. District Court in McAllen, Texas, the NCUA alleged Lopez was not entitled to compensation because she violated her fiduciary duties and “acted in an illegal and improper manner.”The independent federal agency alleged Lopez orchestrated and participated in an improper lending scheme, which she benefitted from and led to substantial financial losses for CMECU. continue reading »last_img read more

Donegal TD calls for support on bill to cut “rip off” insurance costs

first_imgDonegal TD Pearse Doherty has called on all parties to support Sinn Féin’s Consumer Insurance Contracts Bill, which reaches Report and Final Stages in the Dáil this afternoon (Weds). This legislation would reform insurance contracts, increase transparency and tilt the balance in favour of the consumer – according to the Sinn Fein Deputy.Speaking ahead of today’s bill, Deputy Doherty said: “Rip-off insurance costs are squeezing incomes and closing down businesses across the State. “People are wondering how their premiums can go up every year even though they haven’t even made a claim. The insurance market isn’t working for policyholders. For the past three years, the Government have done nothing to reduce insurance costs.“At the same time, companies are making massive profits while we are charged rip-off premiums. Despite the cost and number of claims going down, premiums continue to rise.“Sinn Féin wants to stamp out fraud, ban unfair pricing by insurance companies, reduce premiums and increase protections for consumers in insurance contracts.“Our Consumer Insurance Contracts Bill, which reaches Report and Final Stages of the Dáil on Wednesday, would do just that, tilting the balance in favour of the consumer. “By increasing transparency and strengthening the hand of the policyholder before, during and after the terms of their insurance contract.“This legislation would go further than the Central Bank’s new regulations this month. They required companies to provide only the last year’s premium for customers renewing their motor insurance.“This bill would require companies to inform the customer of the past 3 years of premiums paid and claims received for all non-life insurance contracts. This would increase transparency and strengthen our hands when we look for a better deal each year.“Any company that cancels a policy would have to pay the customer the outstanding balance of the premium paid and make it easier for the customer to withdraw from a contract.“It would also require a company to inform customers of any claim made against their policy, allowing them to submit their own evidence and informing them of the cost of any claim against their policy that has been settled. “The legislation would also make it harder for an insurer to wriggle out of paying valid claims on grounds that have nothing to do with the accident or loss incurred by the policyholder.“In short, this would bring huge benefits to policyholders, and I am urging all parties to stop talking about insurance and start helping policyholders by voting for this Bill.“Sinn Féin wants to take on the insurance industry and ending the rip-off. By stamping out fraud, protecting consumers, banning dual pricing and bringing down premiums. Today’s legislation is a part of that work.”Donegal TD calls for support on bill to cut “rip off” insurance costs was last modified: November 13th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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:car insurancePearse DohertySinn Feinlast_img read more

MRI Overtaking X-Rays

first_imgThe British Medical Journal 12 June cover story1 says that recent advances in magnetic resonance imaging may soon make MRI supersede X-ray as the preferred technology for whole body imaging.  MRI avoids the damage caused by X-rays and provides more contrast and detail, especially in the detection of cancer.  MRI is also replacing traditional autopsy techniques.  See the summary on EurekAlert.1Eustace and Nelson, “Whole body magnetic resonance imaging,” British Medical Journal 2004;328:1387-1388 (12 June), doi:10.1136/bmj.328.7453.1387.The article mentions Raymond Damadian and references his seminal 1971 paper.  Damadian was slighted by the Nobel committee last year (see 10/10/2003 headline) but won the Ben Franklin Medal and Bower Award this year to add to his lifetime honors for inventing this life-saving technology.  Answers in Genesis found a quote by evolutionist Michael Ruse, in which he speculates that the main reason the Nobel committee bypassed Damadian was because of his creationism.  That is scandalous.  Though an ardent anti-creationist, Ruse sympathized with the outrage over the unjust decision, stating, “I cringe at the thought that Raymond Damadian was refused his just honor because of his religious beliefs.”(Visited 11 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
