Paul Oetken in Manhattan approved the deal, which calls for JPMorgan to pay the money within a month and install an improved quality control program to review loans it underwrites using a federally maintained software application that determines if a loan qualifies for government insurance.JPMorgan said in a statement that its deal with federal prosecutors, the Federal Housing Administration, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs “represents another significant step in the firm’s efforts to put historical mortgage-related issues behind it.”The New York-based company said it had already reserved the money for the settlement and any financial impact from exposure to future claims wasn’t expected to be significant.In a release, U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said the company had for years participated in federally subsidized programs meant to make homes more affordable for millions of Americans.“Yet, for more than a decade, it abused that privilege,” he said. “JPMorgan Chase put profits ahead of responsibility by recklessly churning out thousands of defective mortgage loans, failing to inform the government of known problems with those loans and leaving the government to cover the losses when the loans defaulted.”The prosecutor acknowledged, however, that the company had accepted responsibility and promised to reform the flawed practices.The government said the bank approved thousands of loans for government insurance or refinancing that didn’t meet the requirements of federal programs and failed to self-report hundreds of loans it identified as having been affected by fraud or other deficiencies. It also regularly submitted loan data that lacked integrity because it was not based on documents or other information it possessed when employees submitted the data, the government said.Associate Attorney General Tony West said the deal “recovers wrongfully claimed funds for vital government programs that give millions of Americans the opportunity to own a home and sends a clear message that we will take appropriately aggressive action against financial institutions that knowingly engage in improper mortgage lending practices.”In November, JPMorgan agreed to pay $13 billion to settle a civil inquiry into its sales of low-quality mortgage-backed securities that collapsed in value in the 2008 financial crisis. It also announced it had reached a $4.5 billion settlement with 21 major institutional investors over mortgage-backed securities issued by it and Bear Stearns between 2005 and 2008.Last month, it agreed to pay more than $2.5 billion for ignoring obvious warning signs of Bernard Madoff’s massive Ponzi scheme. Madoff, who is serving a 150-year prison sentence after admitting the fraud, squandered nearly $20 billion from thousands of investors over several decades.JPMorgan set aside $23 billion last year to cover the settlements and other costs related to its legal troubles. by Larry Neumeister, The Associated Press Posted Feb 4, 2014 8:59 pm MDT JPMorgan Chase settles federal lawsuit over mortgage lending practices, agreeing to pay $614M read more

first_img THE ROAD SAFETY Authority has put the focus on garda numbers after an eighth road death in four days has seen the death toll on Irish roads spiral way beyond last year.So far this year, 157 people have died on the roads in the Republic of Ireland, that’s 31 more than at this point last year.Although 162 people died over the 12 month period in 2015, last year was “probably the safest year on record”, according to Moya Murdoch of the RSA.Speaking on RTÉ’s News at One, Murdoch said that the sharp increase this year means that it’s time to “take stock” of what’s happening on the roads.“Ireland is outstanding in terms of road safety about personal responsibility and behaviour on the road, but perceptions about being stopped for speeding or being stopped for alcohol is much lower than our counterparts in Europe,” she said.Clearly, while personal responsibility is the number one priority, if there isn’t adequate enforcement out there enforcing road safety then we will have upturns.“One of the concerns the RSA has is the reduction in garda numbers. And we have to deal with that as well because if they’re not there people will take chances,” she says.Murdoch added that, while increased economic activity means busier roads, the housing crisis also plays a role.“We are also seeing people struggling to get affordable accommodation near their places of work, near colleges,” she said.So we are probably seeing a lot more young people driving than we did during the past few years with austerity, because they could live near their work. And young drivers by their nature are riskier.Murdoch’s comments come as another tragedy in north county Dublin last night left 20-year-old Jane Dardis dead after a single vehicle crash.The young woman was a front seat passenger in a car when it crashed into a wall on the Loughshinny Road near her home in Skerries.Read: Woman in her 20s dies after car hits wall in Dublin >Read: ‘Preventable’ death of young student by hit-and-run driver was ‘due to multiple garda failings’ > 20,805 Views Image: Eamonn Farrell 51 Comments Oct 25th 2016, 4:02 PM Tuesday 25 Oct 2016, 4:02 PM Share22 Tweet Email1 center_img Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article By Rónán Duffy Garda diversion after road crash in Laois.

first_imgSandy Huffaker/Getty Images/Via NPRMotorists drop off their ballots at the Registrar of Voters on primary election day June 5, 2018 in San Diego. Eight states, including California, hold primary elections on Tuesday and there are several highly competitive races, including those for governor and U.S. House and Senate seats.Welcome to 2018’s Super Tuesday.Voters head to the polls in eight states today to pick nominees for Senate seats, governor, and several key congressional races that could decide control of the House of Representatives this fall.Mississippi, Alabama, Iowa, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, and South Dakota all vote today. But, with good reason, most of the national focus is on California.Democrats see their path to the House majority running through the two dozen districts that sent a Republican to Congress in 2016, but voted for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. Seven of these districts are in California, with the highest concentration in the longtime Republican outpost of Orange County.Sensing a Democratic surge, Republican incumbents Ed Royce and Darrell Issa retired, raising Democratic hopes even higher in those races.“Top Two” DramaBut Democrats may have gotten too excited about these pickup opportunities for their own good.Many of these Southern California districts are crowded with Democratic candidates. In California’s unusual top-two primary system, all these Democrats and Republicans are competing on the same ballot. The top two vote-getters advance to November, regardless of party affiliation. Democratic leaders are worried the large Democratic fields will spread out their party’s votes, allowing two Republicans to advance in some of these races and taking away what should be competitive fall campaigns.The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and other national groups have spent millions of dollars trying to stave off a November shutout in the 49th, 48th, and 39th Congressional Districts.While Democrats are sweating out this nightmare scenario on the local level, California Republicans have their own top-two fears in statewide races. A crowded field is running to replace term-limited Gov. Jerry Brown in the statehouse, and Sen. Diane Feinstein is running for another term. In both of these marquee races, there’s a realistic possibility that Democrats’ substantial statewide voter registration edge over the GOP will lead to Democrat-vs.-Democrat ballots.While Republicans would likely have a hard time winning either the governorship or a Senate seat this fall, party leaders are worried all-Democrat ballots would depress GOP turnout, hurting more competitive down-ballot races.Governors’ Mansions Up For GrabsA crowded – very crowded – field is vying to replace Democrat Jerry Brown, who is wrapping up his second eight-year stint as California’s governor. Lieutenant Governor and former San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom has led post polls. Republican businessman John Cox and Democrat Antonio Villaraigosa appear to be fighting for the second spot on the fall ballot, along with many other candidates.In Iowa, several Democrats are competing to take on Republican Gov. Kim Reynolds this fall. Iowa Democrats have seen their power and relevance wane in recent years, and are hoping to claw their way back into power in 2018. The Democratic primary saw a major last-minute plot-twist, when State Sen. Nate Boulton suspended his campaign after several women accused him of sexual misconduct.Several Republicans are challenging Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey, who succeeded Gov. Robert Bently after he resigned. The GOP primary took a nasty and personal turn when another candidate raised unfounded rumors about Ivey’s personal life, which she aggressively denied. The Democratic primary has seen more energy than usual in the solidly Republican state, coming so soon after Democrat Doug Jones’ shocking victory in last year’s special Senate election.Senate SeatsTwo Democratic Senate primaries are worth keeping an eye on today, though in both cases, the incumbents are expected to prevail.California Sen. Dianne Feinstein is one of the few moderate Democrats up for reelection this year to face a serious primary challenge from the left. Former state Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon argues Feinstein isn’t doing enough to oppose the Trump administration. Feinstein has responded to the challenge by tacking to the left, and leads de Leon in most polls.New Jersey Democrat Robert Menendez is facing a primary challenge, as well. Menendez is favored to win against Lisa McCormick, but this is the first time he’s facing voters after a lengthy corruption trial ended with a hung jury.In Montana, Republicans are picking their nominee to face Democrat Jon Tester in November. President Trump has made Tester a top target, after the Democrat played a key role in tanking Trump’s nominee for Secretary of Veterans Affairs, Ronny Jackson. State Auditor Matt Rosendale and former judge Russ Fagg are the top contenders for the GOP nomination.Will More GOP House Members Struggle?In Alabama, Rep. Martha Roby is trying not to become the second House incumbent to lose a primary this year. The Republican came under fire from conservatives after she said she wouldn’t vote for Trump after the release of the so-called Access Hollywood video in October 2016 in which Trump made vulgar comments about women. Now, she faces a primary challenge from Rich Hobson — who managed Roy Moore’s controversial and failed Senate campaign last fall — and her predecessor, former Democratic Rep. Bobby Bright, who’s now running as a Republican and Trump loyalist. If no candidate tops 50 percent on Tuesday, the top two candidates will face a July runoff.Meanwhile, South Dakota Rep. Kristi Noem could be the latest member of Congress to struggle this cycle in a bid for statewide office. She’s seeking the GOP nomination for governor against Attorney General Marty Jackley, who’s tried to tar her as part of the D.C. establishment. Other Republican House incumbents have underperformed in their races so far this year, and Idaho Rep. Raul Labrador lost his primary bid for governor. How Noem performs could show whether or not even being part of Congress is a kiss of death with GOP primary voters.Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit Sharelast_img read more

first_imgPorcelain paintings were very expensive and only the nobility in Europe could afford it, so much so that porcelain came to be called White Gold. Porcelain objects were first brought to Europe by Marco Polo from China. They were highly prized and were considered very precious especially since nothing like this existed in Europe. Today several old schools such as Sevres and Limoges in France, Meissen in Germany, Herond in Hungary, Royal Copenhagen in Denmarkand Vista Alegre in Portugal continue to produce hand painted pieces for their customers worldwide. The Capital’s tryst with Porcelain paintings comes through an art exhibition White Gold – The Romance of Porcelain at the India Habitat Centre from February 10 – 12. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The exhibition aims to showcase both the European and American styles of painting as well as share some modern directions this art form has taken. In Europe, USA and Latin America porcelain painting is a vibrant and alive art with many painters and followers. It is still a relatively unknown art form in Delhi. Keeping this in mind, the three porcelain painters have decided to come together to exhibit in this group show. Rita Gharekhan is an international award winning porcelain artist. She is a certified artist and teacher of the International Porcelain Artists and Teachers, Inc. based in USA. She studied the classical Nyon style of porcelain painting in Switzerland. In the US, she learnt the naturalistic style and combined these and other techniques such as the Indian miniature style to create a variety of designs and effects on porcelain. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThese include portraits, still life, landscapes apart from flowers and modernistic motifs. She has exhibited in several cities in the US as well as at the United Nations in New York. She has also had solo exhibitions in New York and in Delhi at the India International Centre as well as Lalit Kala Akademi.  Manju Sinha has held several solo exhibitions in London, New York, Mumbai and New Delhi. Her exquisite pieces of this amazing art include vases, lamps, wall murals etc. Sinha draws her inspiration from nature and her work displays wonderful flora, fauna and landscapes from around the world. She also brings a touch of her Indian heritage with depictions of Buddha, Krishna and Ganesha in her work. She has also recently started working with glass Mosaics to expand her repertoire. “My canvas is white porcelain of various sizes and shapes in form of vases, wall plates, lamps, bowls, trays and even the humblest, mug study the shape of your canvas before deciding on the composition. Form, motive, colour must be in complete harmony,” she said. Madhu Bhalla Ahluwalia started learning Porcelain painting in 1983 in Copenhagen, Denmark.  She continued her studies in the early 1990’s in Lisbon, Portugal. After a gap, wherein she was working in the corporate sector, she restarted porcelain painting in New Delhi, India in 2009. Many of her pieces have come about as a result of blending various techniques in unusual ways. She paints in both the European and American styles. Madhu has travelled extensively all over the world and lived in Europe, USA, South Asia and China. She tries to find designs and ideas from all over the world to incorporate in her porcelain painting, it also provides the inspiration for her experimentation. She had her first solo exhibition at the India International Centre in June-July 2013, sponsored by the IIC.last_img read more

first_imgKolkata: The power tariff in West Bengal remained unchanged for 2017-18 despite rise in fuel costs, the state’s Electricity Regulatory Commission (WBERC) said today. “After review, we have not increased the tariff for 2017-18 keeping the interest of consumers in mind, in spite of huge pressure from the major utilities to increase the tariff,” WBERC chairman R N Sen told PTI. Private utility the CESC and the state run West Bengal State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (WBSEDCL) have put pressure on the Commission to hike the tariff due to rise in fuel costs, he said. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killed The CESC covers Kolkata and Howrah, while the WBSEDCL caters to the consumers of rest of the state. The WBERC had earlier declared the 2017-18 tariff as per multi-year tariff scheme, but based on demand by the utilities, the tariff is reviewed but the tariffs remained unchanged. The CESC had asked for a revised tariff of around Rs 8.40 per unit and WBSEDCL had sought about Rs 7.70 per unit. But the average power tariff of WBSEDCL remained unaltered at Rs 7.12 per unit, while that of the CESC remained unchanged at Rs 7.31 per unit. Tariff for the 2018-19 is yet to be announced. State Power Minister Shobhandeb Chatterjee said, “We are happy that the Commission has not put any additional burden on consumers. We will still be paying subsidy for earlier rise, upto 300 units.”last_img read more
