Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Print This Post Subscribe While Republicans have long claimed that the financial system in the United States have been severely overregulated since the crisis, a group of progressives who believe that Wall Street is not regulated enough has organized a coalition in hopes of getting stricter rules passed.Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts), the architect of the controversial Consumer Financial Protection Bureau that came from the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010—the focal point of Republicans’ complaints of financial industry overregulation—led the coalition on Tuesday, according to Think Progress. Also joining in were Reps. Keith Ellison (D-Minnesota) and Nydia Velasquez (D-New York) and various labor leaders, civil rights groups, and community groups.Tuesday’s rally comes just one week after presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump announced that he would overhaul Dodd-Frank if he is elected president.According to Warren, the coalition is operating on two key principals—“No cheating and no pushing the risks on taxpayers”—the coalition is making five key demands:Break up the largest banksEnsure consumer access to non-predatory banking productsEnd the carried interest tax loophole allowing hedge fund managers to use a tax break for investment income on income they make at workRein in executive bonusesImpose a financial transaction taxIn her address on Tuesday, Warren noted some of the accomplishments of Dodd-Frank—namely the more than $10 billion the CFPB has returned to consumers that the Bureau has deemed to have been harmed by predatory financial practices. But she said there is more to be done.“We have made a lot of progress under the Dodd-Frank financial reforms,” she said. “But we’ve also got a lot more to do.”Notably, Warren called for the breaking up of the country’s largest banks, because she believes that Dodd-Frank did not end “Too Big to Fail” as it professed to do.The report noted that the point of the coalition is not just to lay out policy but to combine forces in hopes of getting that policy passed. Warren pointed out that she believes it will not be an easy fight, but “we didn’t take on this fight because it’s easy, we took on this fight because it’s right.” May 24, 2016 1,128 Views Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Coalition Pushes for Stricter Wall Street Regulation Previous: ‘Survivor Bill of Rights’ is Gaining Traction Next: Fairholme: Status Quo Makes Another Bailout ‘Inevitable’ Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Dodd-Frank Elizabeth Warren Financial Industry Regulation Wall Street 2016-05-24 Brian Honea Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Related Articles The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago About Author: Brian Honea Home / Daily Dose / Coalition Pushes for Stricter Wall Street Regulation Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.

Loading… Tyson spent three years in prison after being convicted of rape in 1992, a sentence that has seen him face travel restrictions in the past. But he has since turned his life around, recently spending time in lockdown preparing himself for a comeback, but if he is to accept the challenge down under he may not fight until next year. Amatruda said: “We’d have to wait until the coronavirus shutdowns are over of course so the fight probably wouldn’t be until early next year – as long as we can get the visa. “They gave him one in 2012 and he was fine, he’s a quiet family man now. He didn’t cause any trouble then, so why shouldn’t they let him back in?” Tyson boxed Corey Sanders in a 2006 exhibition as part of his world tour, which was organised to help relieve some of his well-documented money troubles. But the two-time champion insists his planned comeback is only to raise money for charity and will now decide which rugby star to take on. read also:Tyson has same speed, power as a 21-year-old—- trainer Hall drew against Gallen on his one and only boxing bout, with the latter winning his other nine fights. Retired rugby star Williams, who now plays league, has won all seven of his pro fights but has not boxed since 2015. His biggest win came against former world champion Francois Botha, who he outpointed in 2013.

Cordeiro, head coach at Kings MMA in California, believes Tyson would only need another five months to be ready for a genuine pay-per-view comeback fight. And the reformed Baddest Man on The Planet has received his first offer to do so with promoter Brian Amatruda lining up either ex-rugby league players Barry Hall and Paul Gallen or All Blacks legend Williams as opponents. Amatruda told the Daily Mail: “I’d hold it at Melbourne Arena where we’d get over 10,000 or even Princes Park where they got 30,000 for Jeff Fenech versus Azumah Nelson. “He might be 53 years old but he’s still a huge name and any of those blokes Hall, Gallen or Sonny Bill would jump at the chance to get into the ring with him. “I’d make it part of a card with a world title fight. It would be enormous. Not just a fight, it would be an event. “The first thing I did was contact (celebrity agent) Max Markson and ask him to offer Tyson $1million. “Max brought him to Australia in 2012. He gets on well with him and his wife but the main thing is that he got him a visa to get into the country back then and that’s the key.”
Anthony Joshua’s “absolute focus” is still on a homecoming world title fight against Kubrat Pulev, unless the UK option is “taken out of our hands”, says promoter Eddie Hearn.The Matchroom Boxing boss has confirmed Joshua will make one defence of his WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight titles this year against IBF mandatory challenger Pulev, which is unlikely to be staged before the end of September.Hearn told Sky Sports: “Wouldn’t it be great to come through all this and stage a world heavyweight title fight in the UK this year. For us, that is the absolute focus and if that’s taken out of our hands, we will look at other options around the world. Joshua (left) and Pulev were earlier scheduled to fight next month “Croatia is a potential option at this stage and just a part of wider discussions. Given the current uncertainty, I would expect to see him in the ring again end of September at the earliest, but more likely October or November as the restrictions hopefully start to ease.”Pulev’s manager Ivalyo Gotsev is keen to stage the fight at the end of August and revealed that he has secured financial backing and a date at Pula Arena, a Roman Amphitheatre in Croatia.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
The California Science Center Board of Directors could vote today on the latest terms of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum lease agreement with USC.Trouble in the arena · USC hopes to lease the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, but faces opposition from those who believe the switch of parking spots surrounding the Coliseum to the school will be debilitating. – Joseph Chen | Daily TrojanIf approved by the Board, the agreement would give USC full managing rights at the state historical landmark and guarantee the University 70 percent of the parking spaces in the Science Center’s deck on 25 event days per year (33 if the NFL uses the stadium temporarily). It would also extend USC’s lease from 2054, the expiration date agreed upon in a December 2012 plan, to 2111 — a 98-year deal.Opponents of the deal spoke out at public forums this week, saying that the loss of parking would take both revenue and visitors away from the California African American Museum, the California Science Center and the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County.“It goes too far,” said Charmaine Jefferson, CAAM’s executive director. The state cut the museum’s budget in half 10 years ago, and since, CAAM has relied heavily on revenues from the Exposition Park parking lot, which is owned by the state. She said the state currency divides the parking lot revenue among the museums, and that giving USC the excess revenue is “wrong.”Under this lease, USC will pay $10 — the standard weekday rate — for each parking spot on each day it controls the lot. But on special event days, the state has been able to charge as much as $16 for those spaces. And if USC raises prices, it can keep the profits, she said.The leaders of all three Exposition Park museums share Jefferson’s concern that the lease agreement is lopsided in USC’s favor.“[This deal] doesn’t adequately ensure the cultural integrity of Exposition Park,” said Kimberly Freeman, a CAAM board member. It requires all Exposition Park entities to schedule “special events” — those attended by more than 3,000 people — 24 months in advance, which is unreasonable for a small institution like CAAM, Freeman said. She added that CAAM projects a $31 million shortfall over 50 years because of lost parking revenue.“These are free museums and they will be clearly damaged from the loss of parking revenue and the loss of parking itself,” added Science Center Trustee Marvin Holen.Bobbie Jean Anderson, a Vermont Knolls resident, asked the Board to reject the deal and take more time to negotiate. As it stands, the deal would “surrender some of our most treasured landmarks for next to nothing,” she said.Further, the terms of the deal were published May 20, just 10 days before the first public hearing. Holen said community members hardly had enough time to review it and make judgments, and a Science Center Board vote today would be premature, Holen said. He has threatened to seek an injunction against the deal.“Secrecy … has been endemic in this entire process,” he said at the hearing.Generally, however, stakeholders agree that USC is best equipped to manage and repair the Coliseum, which needs $70 million to $100 million in renovations.Three current USC students, all alumni of the Neighborhood Academic Initiative, a seven-year pre-college enrichment program that rewards the neighborhood’s most successful students with full scholarships to USC, joined current NAI students to defend USC’s record of acting in the neighborhood’s best interest.“We all want USC to manage the Coliseum. They will do this superbly,” Jefferson said. But she doesn’t think the deal is satisfactory yet. “I don’t think they’ll approve this on Wednesday.”State Sen. Curren Price, who will represent City Council’s ninth district, which includes the Coliseum, beginning in July, called the deal a “clear violation” of the board’s legal obligation to protect its and CAAM’s interests. State Sen. Kevin deLeon said he will ask the legislature to overturn the lease if approved. State Sens. Richard Polanco and Rod Wright have also voiced their dissatisfaction.
