A lifelong Texan, Brian received his master’s degree from Amberton University in Garland. Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Bank of New York Mellon has issued a warning to the U.S. Supreme Court predicting disaster for the residential mortgage-backed securities market if the nation’s highest court overturns a Second Circuit Court ruling that the bank was not liable for losses incurred by investors as a result of defective securities, according to a report from Law360.In a filing earlier in November, BNY Mellon asked the Supreme Court not to review a decision by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals from December 2014 which found that the mortgage-backed securities in question were not protected under the 1939 Trust Indenture Act (TIA). A group of union pension funds led by the Retirement Board of the Policemen’s Annuity and Benefit Fund of the City of Chicago asked the Second Circuit court to reverse that decision in September 2015, which overturned a district court’s decision that permitted the pension fund to sue BNY Mellon for failing to perform its duties as a trustee on 26 trusts with about $30 billion in balances.The trusts in question contain pools of mortgages serviced by Countrywide Financial, which was acquired by Bank of America in 2008 and has since cost that bank billions of dollars in legal fees and settlements regarding its RMBS practices.The pension funds’ lawsuit suit claims that BNY Mellon failed in its duties as trustee with the securities because it did not intervene when Countrywide failed to perform its duties as servicer, which include reviewing loan files, repurchasing bad loans, or transferring mortgage notes to BNY Mellon. The suit alleges that BNY Mellon was negligent in its duties because it did not ensure that Countrywide performed those duties.A district judge ruled in 2012 that the pension funds would be allowed to bring claims on 26 out of 530 trusts held by BNY Mellon which amounted to an original principal balance of approximately $424 billion. Two years later, that decision was later overturned by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.The pension funds allege that reversing the Second Circuit Court’s decision and allowing them to sue the bank would improve the RMBS market by improving trustee oversight of the bonds, which would lift the confidence of investors. BNY Mellon disputed that claim in its brief filed with the Supreme Court earlier this month, saying that reversing that decision would force the bank to rewrite contracts worth “trillions” that were believed to be exempt from the TIA at the time they were created. BNY Mellon said in its brief that “[N]othing could be more unsettling to investors than a ruling that, many years after the fact, retroactively changed the terms of contracts governing trillions of dollars worth of investments.” Home / Daily Dose / BNY Mellon Cautions U.S. Supreme Court on RMBS Decision Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Tagged with: BNY Mellon Lawsuits Mortgage-Backed Securities U.S. Supreme Court Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago About Author: Brian Honea Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days agolast_img read more

WBB : Orange wins easily with complete, dominant performance

first_img Published on November 18, 2011 at 12:00 pm Facebook Twitter Google+ Commentscenter_img The ball continued to find its way into Elashier Hall’s hands. In the early part of the game the junior guard simply couldn’t be stopped. Hall pestered St. Francis point guard Nickia Gibbs early on, stealing the ball from her three times in the opening two and a half minutes.Hall’s energy in the first few minutes set the tone for the rest of the game. Syracuse continually frustrated the Red Flash guards causing turnovers and rushing out in transition for easy points.‘I was just really energized and really ready to play,’ Hall said. ‘I came off a good game, and I was trying to keep it up for my teammates and set the pace.’Hall opened the game 4-of-4 shooting, scoring the team’s first 9 points of the game and adding a block and three steals. Her quick start, fueled by the three steals, sparked a dominant overall performance from the Orange (2-0). Relying on a high-pressure 2-3 zone for much of the first half, combined with a great rebounding effort, SU was able to pull away in the opening minutes and dominate the Red Flash (0-3) in its 88-45 victory in front of 788 Friday in the Carrier Dome. The victory was head coach Quentin Hillsman’s 100th of his career.The Orange bullied St. Francis right from the opening tip-off. On SU’s first possession, three different Syracuse players grabbed an offensive rebound before Hall scored the team’s first points on a short jumper from the left elbow.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSU would put pressure on the Red Flash interior players all game long. In the first four minutes, the Orange gathered six offensive rebounds. In a flash, the Orange was up 13-0.‘It’s just more of our effort crashing the boards,’ SU forward Carmen Tyson-Thomas said. ‘It’s something that we do, we all go to the board hard. Iasia, even our guards, our smaller guards, myself, Lacie, Kayla, we all put in the effort and know where we’re supposed to be.’In another dominating rebounding performance for the Orange, three players finished with a double-double for SU. Hall led the way with 18 points all in the first half and 10 rebounds. Tyson-Thomas finished with 12 points and 12 rebounds, and Iasia Hemingway  scored 11 points with 10 boards off the bench.The success was a chain reaction. It started with the defense, which forced St. Francis to just 25 percent shooting in both the first and second halves. The Orange corralled those misses and turned it up court, pushing the tempo.At 13:11 in the first half, Hemingway grabbed a rebound off a miss by guard Kelley Doogan. Hemingway looked upcourt, fed it to Rachel Coffey on the right side who took a few dribbles and sent a long, looping pass to Tyson-Thomas. She swooped under the basket and finished with a right-handed layup high off the glass.Tyson-Thomas was fouled on the play and converted the free throw to push SU’s lead to 22-6.‘I think that our pressure speeds the game up and our pressure is starting to lead to some weak-side rebounding,’ Hillsman said. ‘ … The more we get out into transition and the more we can create turnovers, the better team we are going to be.’Hillsman said that after turning the ball over 28 times against Long Beach State, limiting these mistakes was a point of emphasis. Friday, the Orange turned the ball over eight fewer times.Syracuse took advantage of tough play on the boards in an effective manner, without giving the Red Flash any unwarranted points. SU had just eight fouls throughout the game, yielding only seven points from the free-throw line. Syracuse, though, took advantage in the up-tempo offense on the other end of the court and got to the stripe a ton, converting on 27-of-35 free-throw attempts to pull away.It was a complete performance to dominate St. Francis easily.‘We really believe that our defense is good enough that if we don’t give away points off turnovers and give away points from the free throw line that we can be a very good basketball team,’ Hillsman [email protected]last_img read more

Why Twitter Must Expand Beyond 140 Characters

first_imgTwitter Needs to Expand Beyond 140 Characters to Continue GrowingI’m not minimizing the UX issues that Twitter will face when it expands beyond its core 140 character limit. But I do believe it’s just a matter of time before it widens the character limit. There’s no reason for Twitter to be constrained anymore, especially when the largest Internet using country on earth (China) already accommodates much longer tweets than are possible in English. Of course Twitter is banned in China and can only be used with software that routes around The Great Firewall, but still my point is valid.Twitter is a public real-time messaging service which has gone mainstream. While it needs to keep the essential spirit of short-form messaging going, there are ways to do that in the design without using a character limitation. If Twitter wants to continue its expansion into the mainstream, it needs to lose the 140-character limitation and just market itself as the world’s leading ‘real-time messaging service’. What do you think, will Twitter soon expand beyond 140 characters like TweetDeck did? The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification But that UX paradigm had already been challenged by the gradual increase in multimedia links. Many Twitter users now post links to photos, video, blog posts, Foursquare check-ins, Facebook updates, and much more. Users need to click to see that extra content. When Twitter launched its re-design in March last year, it adjusted to this increase of multimedia by enabling users of Twitter.com (still how the vast majority of people consume Twitter content) to view photos and video within Twitter’s website. It was a relatively small, but significant, step to lessen the burden of viewing multimedia content within Twitter. Third party clients like TweetDeck also allow users to view photos and video in a pop-up box inside the app. TweetDeck offers a similar functionality for Deck.ly messages that are longer than can be contained in a double cell. It pops up a box within the app, meaning that users don’t need to go outside of TweetDeck to view the content. It seems only a matter of time before Twitter enables users to view ‘long tweets’ within Twitter.com, in the same way that users can view videos and photos within the site.Will Twitter Producers Pollute Twitter With Long Tweets?While Twitter is positioning itself these days as more of a media consumption service, with the expectation that many more people read Twitter than write to it, the tone of the service will continue to be set by users who actively tweet. If Twitter drops the 140 character limitation, I think Twitter producers will adjust and only post longer tweets occasionally. Twitter will need to monitor that somehow, but – barring a drastic change in user behavior – Twitter users won’t stop producing short tweets just because long ones become available to them. They’ll use the long tweets sparingly, because they’ve been habituated into doing short tweets.As for new users, Twitter will need to effectively convey in their marketing that Twitter is ideal for short-form real-time messaging. Indeed without a character limitation, Twitter will actually be easier to promote to mainstream users. It will remove an extra barrier for people to start using Twitter.Other Languages Already Send Long Messages on TwitterAnother thing to consider that in some languages other than English, 140 characters allows for much longer updates than English users are used to. In Chinese for example, a 140 character tweet can produce a long message. Noted Chinese artist, human rights activist and Twitter user Ai Weiwei explained in March last year that even though Twitter has a 140-character limit, Twitter users in China can easily express in-depth thoughts because the Chinese language allows Twitter users to express 140 words on Twitter and not just 140 characters.Consider this tweet that Ai Weiwei wrote today. It easily fits in the 140 character limitation in Chinese, but the English translation is about 275 characters over that 140 character limit. Is it the constraint of 140 characters per message that makes Twitter what it is? Or is Twitter now a broader, real-time messaging service that needn’t be constrained by a character limitation?The most prominent third party Twitter client, TweetDeck, recently introduced a “long post” feature called Deck.ly, which brings those questions to the fore. Deck.ly allows Twitter users to post messages longer than the traditional 140 character limit. In this post I’ll argue that Twitter itself will probably soon follow and expand beyond 140 characters. Indeed, it will need to if it’s to continue expanding into the mainstream.TweetDeck’s Deck.ly works as follows: if you post something in TweetDeck that is longer than 140 characters, other TweetDeck users will see the entire message in the app if it is not longer than “can be displayed in a double-height cell.” If it goes over that, TweetDeck users will see a ‘Read More’ link which when clicked, opens a pop-up box within TweetDeck. Meanwhile, in other third party Twitter clients and in the browser on Twitter.com, all Deck.ly messages will display in excerpted form with a link to the full message on a webpage.Twitter No Longer About Constraints This is clearly an experimental feature introduced by TweetDeck – indeed they’re still tweaking it. However I believe it’s a pointer to the future: Twitter will expand its self-imposed character limitation in order to make its service easier to understand for consumers.Real-time public messaging has become a huge trend over the past couple of years. Two services have come to dominate this trend: Facebook and Twitter. Facebook’s status updates are the backbone of its social networking service. But it’s been Twitter that has captured the imagination of media and public figures for real-time messaging. Partly that’s because Facebook is essentially a closed system and so you won’t see CNN or Kanye West’s status updates (for example) unless you’re inside Facebook’s website. However it’s also because Twitter had a limitation of 140 characters right from the start, a figure that made it necessary to compose short, to-the-point status updates. Twitter started out with ‘What are you doing?’ as its incentivizing message for users. In November 2009, it became ‘What’s happening?’. That helped broaden Twitter’s usage from “I’m eating breakfast” type messages to people tweeting about current news events, media they’re consuming, topics they’re interested in, and much more.That Extra Click: The User Experience IssueAs noted, TweetDeck’s new “long post” feature enables users to send messages longer than 140 characters. However there is a significant user experience issue with that, in that it often introduces an extra click for the user. A lot of Twitter’s beauty as a consumer of tweets is that you can scan a bunch of tweets in one go. richard macmanuscenter_img Tags:#twitter#web Related Posts Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Auditlast_img read more

Jasprit Bumrah salutes MS Dhoni: Legends don’t need to prove their worth to anyone

first_imgBrief Scores: India (299/4; Kohli 104, Dhoni 55 not out) beat Australia (298/9; Marsh 131, Maxwell 48, Bhuvneshwar 4 for 45) by 6 wickets. Full ScorecardVirat Kohli may have scored yet another hundred in a successful run chase but it was MS Dhoni’s knock which stole the show at the Adelaide Oval on Tuesday night.India rode on Kohli’s 104 and Dhoni’s unbeaten 55 to chase down 299 and beat Australia by 6 wickets in the second ODI and levelled the three-match series 1-1.Former captain Dhoni played a subdued role in support of his successor Kohli as two players with the joint experience of more than 550 ODIs steadily chipped away at Australia’s total.With Kohli’s untimely dismissal, Dhoni took up the chase and carried India to a victory which will see the series decided on Friday in the third international at Melbourne.India came to the final over needing seven runs to win and Dhoni smashed the first ball over the long straight boundaries at the Adelaide Oval for a six which tied the scores, then clinched the win with a single from the next ball.Dhoni was fortunate to have the heady support of Dinesh Karthik, who came to the crease at a difficult moment when Kohil had just fallen. He scored 25 from just 14 balls to ensure India reached its target.”Credit to Virat and Dhoni, the way they played. We got a good start as well so it’s the sort of win that will give the team a lot of confidence, chasing 300.”(Dhoni) has been doing it for years now and the fact he can stay calm, the fact he can absorb pressure and watch the ball, keep the plan very simple. You need the big shot and then he delivers,” Karthik said after the match.advertisementSocial media was abuzz following India’s win with Dhoni garnering a lot of praise for the way he finished yet another match for India.Teammate Jasprit Bumrah lauded the former skipper saying, “Legends don’t need to prove their worth to anyone. Great display of class and temperament by Mahi bhai.”Legends don’t need to prove their worth to anyone.

Congress fields Digvijaya from tough seat Bhopal

first_imgNew Delhi: The Congress has ‘fielded’ its strongman Digvijaya Singh from Bhopal and changed UP unit chief Raj Babbar’s seat from Moradabad to Fatehpur Sikri to make it “easier” for the actor-turned-politician. Singh, who wanted to contest from his home turf Rajgarh, was publicly asked by MP CM Kamal Nath to choose one of the “tough seats” where the Congress has not won in three decades. Ex-CM Singh accepted the challenge and said that he would contest from any seat as long as it was chosen by “my leader Rahul Gandhi.” He is yet to respond to the announcement made by Nath.

The high-profile Bhopal Lok Sabha seat is currently held by the BJP’s Alok Sanjar. Late President Shankar Dayal Sharma was the last Congress winner from the seat in the 1984 LS polls. In 2014 the BJP won 27 of the 29 seats in MP. The Congress won the remaining two, Chhindwara and Guna, held by Nath and Jyotiraditya Scindia respectively. As per the Congress list, Imran Pratapgarhiya will now be the party’s candidate from Moradabad in place of Babbar. According to sources, Raj Babbar was not keen on contesting from Moradabad where the BJP has fielded its sitting MP Kunwar Sarvesh Kumar. In another change, Naseemuddin Siddiqui has been fielded from Bijnor, from where Indira Bhatti was named earlier.last_img read more
