first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr by: Brian GodwinOn the 13th of November the CFPB issued the prepaid account proposal that we had been expecting for a quite a while.  I thought it might be helpful to provide a very high-level summary of the proposal, which I’ve included below.  If you’re particularly interested in this rule, and would like to read all 870 pages yourself, you can find a copy here.The proposal relates to cards, codes, or other devises, established primarily for personal, family or household purposes, which are not already an “account” under Regulation E and are issued on a prepaid basis in a specified amount, or are capable of being loaded with funds.  The access devices must also be redeemable at multiple, unaffiliated merchants, ATMs or usable for P2P transfers.   The term “account” would not include gift cards, gift certificates, loyalty cards, payroll cards used solely for incentive-based payments, or HSAs.The proposed rule would establish standard disclosure requirements including the provision of both a “short-form disclosure” and a “long-form disclosure” which must meet prescribed formatting requirements.  The disclosures would provide information regarding fees, a statement that the consumer must register the prepaid account with the issuer in order to protect the funds on the account, a statement regarding the applicability of NCUSIF coverage, the web address of the CFPB’s prepaid website, and if applicable, disclosures described in Regulation Z related to a credit plan that may be offered in connection with the account. continue reading »last_img read more

first_imgTottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas expects Gareth Bale and Michael Dawson to be out for at least a week with hamstring injuries.Dawson limped off after an awkward fall in the first half in the 3-0 win over Fulham, while Bale pulled up late on and was also substituted.“Both Bale and Dawson have suffered muscle injuries to their hamstrings,” Villas-Boas confirmed.“One looks more serious than the other but both are controllable. Bale may be out for one or two weeks, Dawson maybe a little bit less.”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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

first_imgMourinho: Man Utd players physically fragileby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United boss Jose Mourinho says his players couldn’t physically cope with Liverpool on Sunday.Mourinho admits Liverpool were physically superior on the day.”We have lots of problems related to physicality,” said Mourinho.“We have lots of players that I could consider injury problems, because some of our players are always injured and it’s not with me – it was before me.“If you look to the stats with Mr Van Gaal and David, we had players that are permanently injured and, when you’re permanently injured, physicality is difficult to get.”Then there are qualities you cannot improve or make them have. Robertson, Mane, Salah, Wijnaldum, Keita, Fabinho, they are physical players and on top of that they are good technically.“I have lots of good players technically, but we don’t have that intensity or physicality.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_imgBiarritz: President Donald Trump signaled regret Sunday for an escalating trade war with China, as he faces a tense reception from world leaders meeting amid mounting anxiety of a global economic slowdown at the Group of Seven summit in France. Trump is trying to use the conference to rally global leaders to do more to stimulate their economies, as fears rise of a potential slowdown in the U.S. ahead of his reelection. But Trump’s counterparts, including British Prime Minister Boris Johnson are trying to convince him to back off his trade wars with China and other countries, which they see as contributing to the economic weakening.

Trump responded with more tariffs of his own and issued an extraordinary threat to declare a national emergency in an attempt to force US businesses to cut ties with China. But Sunday, during a breakfast meeting with Johnson, Trump suggested he has qualms about the spiraling conflict. “Yeah. For sure,” Trump told reporters when asked if he has second thoughts about escalating the trade dispute, adding he has “second thoughts about everything.”last_img read more
