Nearly 150 comments already uploaded on CUNA’s TCPA petition

first_img continue reading » Nearly 150 comments have already been uploaded to the FCC’s website on CUNA’s Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) petition during the 30-day comment period, which closed Monday. CUNA filed its petition with the Federal Communications Commission last month, outlining ways the agency could provide relief to credit unions confused about compliance with the TCPA.The FCC issued the petition for public comment within a week, and CUNA will have until Nov. 21 to make any reply comments. Dozens of credit unions and other third-party supporters weighed in, in support of the petition and CUNA’s suggestions for potential exemptions.Changes to the TCPA were finalized by the FCC in 2015. CUNA is concerned that these changes, in addition to a convoluted regulatory landscape from other FCC rulings and orders, are stifling the ability of credit unions to contact members with important account information, due to risks of not being in compliance with the changes. 13SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Mata and Luiz important to Mourinho

first_img Press Association Chelsea rejected the suggestion Mata or Luiz could be used in the bargaining for Rooney and pointed accusingly at United for suggesting the part exchange, which may have unsettled the duo. Mourinho insisted it was a cash-only offer and that the futures of Spain playmaker Mata and Brazil defender Luiz are in the blue of Chelsea. Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has felt no need to reassure Juan Mata and David Luiz that they are part of his long-term plans after the pair were mentioned as possible makeweights in the bid to take Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney to Stamford Bridge.center_img The duo are absent from the tour of Asia to take a break following the Confederations Cup before joining up with Mourinho’s Chelsea for the first time at the end of this month, ahead of the tour to the United States. “I am not going to contact them based on news that is not true and that they know that it is not true, because I told them they are very important for me,” Mourinho said. “How can I change that two days later because of a news (report)? So, no contact with them. “I spoke with them during the summer, in my period of holiday and their period in the Confederations Cup. “When they finished the Confederations Cup I just wished them luck and told them that I will see them on the 28th (July 28).” Mourinho insists he is a man of principle and loyalty is key among them. “Loyalty, for me, is fundamental, not just in football but also in life,” he added. “What I try to create in the team is that kind of principle in between them. “They must have the capacity to be critical with each other and when you are critical with a colleague you must have a big sense of loyalty so you can accept the criticisms from the other guy.” last_img read more

Irvine: Berahino can go all the way

first_img “Others too – Everton had a record of getting 16-year-olds into first teams so it is very important we spend time talking to these boys and making sure everything is right.” Victor Anichebe started the Baggies’ comeback after they had fallen 2-0 behind following Brede Hangeland’s goal and Mile Jedinak’s penalty. Berahino had a quiet afternoon but, after his eighth goal in all competitions, Irvine believes his England Under-21 international can become one of the elite. “I think so. As long as he goes about his job in a way he is doing now – on the field and off it,” said Irvine, who takes his team to Bournemouth in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday. “As long as he keeps having this desire to improve, which he has at this moment. “Then, of course, as long as he can handle the pressure of success. “Some can’t handle that pressure – they get distracted, so it is important he takes everything that is going on at the moment in his stride. “Saido’s getting an awful lot of attention, so it is vitally important that we are there to support him and make sure that doesn’t take him off track.” Press Association Berahino has netted more in the league than any other Albion player scored in the whole of last term and is the top-scoring Englishman. Irvine was at Everton when Rooney broke into the side and also worked with Ross Barkley, and reckons Berahino has the same mentality as the England pair. “If you are going to be a top player, you have to have a lot of the full package,” he said. “Everyone talks about technical, tactical, physical, psychological. You cannot be a top player unless you score highly in all of them. “You might score more highly in a couple of areas but you can’t possibly be a top player if you don’t score highly in all. “Saido has a lot of that package but he is still at that age where it can go one way or another. “The last thing you can do is have anything that affects any of those areas. Of course, the biggest of all is the psychological. “I have been fortunate enough to have worked with a number of very talented young players over the years. Wayne Rooney springs to mind. The striker rescued a point with a stoppage-time penalty in Saturday’s 2-2 comeback draw against Crystal Palace. His seventh goal of the Barclays Premier League season completed the Baggies’ revival after they were 2-0 down at half time. West Brom head coach Alan Irvine believes Saido Berahino has the world at his feet – and has compared him with England captain Wayne Rooney.last_img read more

Lehmann hopes no Ashes boycott, urges solution to pay row

first_img(REUTERS) – Australia coach Darren Lehmann hopes the ongoing pay dispute will not prompt the players to boycott this year’s Ashes series and urged both sides to resolve the matter.The Australian Cricketers’ Association (ACA) rejected a pay offer from their governing body, Cricket Australia (CA) earlier this month saying “a win for cricket administrators but a loss for cricket”.CA has threatened to not renew contracts for 2017-18 and several players, including vice-captain David Warner and bowler Mitchell Starc, have hinted at a boycott of the Ashes series against England.“I’m sure that (the boycott) won’t happen,” Warner told reporters in Brisbane.“I have my views but I’m not going to share it. I’m talking to both players and CA.”Lehmann said that he would talk to the players when the squad assembles prior to the Champions Trophy in June.“You have to do that. You have to keep it open and communication so we know what direction everyone’s going,” Lehmann said.“Just getting together and working it out is the way to go. It always stays quite late in the negotiations – it happened last time and the time before that. You have those issues …. There’s no panic, it’s just about the two parties getting together.”Captain Steve Smith will join the squad after leading the Rising Pune Supergiant to Monday’s Indian Premier League final and Lehmann said that he maintained constant contact with the 27-year-old.“He’s really looking forward to getting the lads back together. There have been a lot of emails and text messages around the place. He is (in good spirits). He’s been there for four months and hasn’t been home. But he’s ready to go.”last_img read more
