UK journalist Syria rebels led me into death trap

first_imgAssociated PressLONDON (AP) – A British journalist claims Syrian rebels set him up to die in no man’s land near the Lebanese border, saying Friday he believes they wanted to use his death at the hands of government forces to score propaganda points.Channel 4 News’s chief correspondent Alex Thomson said the incident happened Monday in the Syrian town of Qusair, about half an hour’s drive from the battered city of Homs. New high school in Mesa lets students pick career paths Early signs of cataracts in your parents and how to help Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family In a blog post published to Channel 4’s website and in an email exchange with The Associated Press, Thomson said he, his driver, a translator, and two other journalists were trying to return to government lines when their rebel escort led them down what he described as a dead-end in the middle of a “free-fire zone.” A shot rang out, and he said their car made a series of panicky maneuvers before retreating the way it came.Thomson claimed that they weren’t led into no man’s land by mistake.“I’m quite clear the rebels deliberately set us up to be shot by the Syrian army,” he wrote in the post, explaining that their deaths at the hands of President Bashar Assad’s forces would have drawn sympathy to the rebel cause. “Dead journos are bad for Damascus,” he said.Thomson said he and his colleagues eventually managed to get back to the government side. He has since left Syria.His account wasn’t possible to verify amid the chaos gripping Syria, but in an email he insisted that there was no other explanation for what happened.“They said: `Go left.’ Road was totally blocked 50 yards ahead. They had to have known.” (Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.)

Hungary seeks to tighten south border hold illegal migrants

first_imgHungary has received more than 50,000 asylum requests so far this year, compared to 43,000 in 2014 and 2,157 in 2012. Previously, the majority of asylum seekers came from Kosovo. Since March, about 70 percent of them are from Afghanistan, Syria or Iraq.“The Fidesz proposal would prevent those arriving illegally to Hungary from a secure country from being able to seek asylum status,” government spokesman Zoltan Kovacs said. “It is not true that the lives of those arriving from Greece or Serbia are in danger.”Kovacs didn’t rule out the possibility of a barbed wire fence on the border with Serbia.“We hope for the best, but are preparing for the worst,” Kovacs said.Officials also said that Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Lichtenstein had indicated they were planning to return to Hungary at least 15,000 migrants who made their asylum request here but moved on to Western Europe before their cases were assessed.Antal Rogan, head of the Fidesz parliamentary group, said Hungary would like to return to its earlier practice, changed after pressure from the European Union, of taking into custody all those caught illegally crossing the border.In the past few weeks, Hungary’s government has stepped up its anti-immigration campaign. Billboards with slogans like “If you come to Hungary, you cannot take away Hungarians’ jobs” are being put up. Voters also have been sent a questionnaire about migration, which the government hopes will legitimize its restrictive policies.

The Conservatorship Eight Years Later

first_img Share in Daily Dose, Government, Headlines, News The Conservatorship, Eight Years Later September 6, 2016 538 Views center_img Conservatorship Fannnie Mae FHFA Freddie Mac 2016-09-06 Seth Welborn Tuesday, September 6, marks the eight-year anniversary of the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA)’s conservatorship of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. In response to a substantial deterioration in the housing markets that severely damaged Fannie Mae’s and Freddie Mac’s financial condition and left them unable to fulfill their mission without government intervention. On September 6, 2008, the newly-created FHFA used its authorities to place Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac into conservatorship.FHFA launched initiatives to recover losses resulting from the housing crisis of 2008 as well as avoid further liability to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The agency sought to decrease the amount of outstanding repurchases, and they worked to also decrease the amount of loans originated with manufacturing defects due to poor underwriting standards. Finally, FHFA assumed actions to decrease the amount of operational loss events at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.The FHFA notes that a key component of the conservatorship is the commitment of the U.S. Department of the Treasury to provide financial support to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to enable them to continue to provide liquidity and stability to the mortgage market. In doing so, the Treasury Department has provided $189.5 billion in support. This includes an initial placement of $1 billion in both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac at the time of the conservatorship and an additional cumulative $187.5 billion investment from the Treasury Department.In addition, as conservator, FHFA assumed the authority of the management and boards of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac during the period of the conservatorship. The agency states though that while it has broad authority over Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the focus of the conservatorship is not to manage every aspect of their operations.At the time of their conservatorship in September 2008, Fannie Mae’s total outstanding debt stood at $843 billion and Freddie Mac’ total outstanding debt stood at $814.9 billion. As of their most recent monthly volume summary report for July, Fannie Mae’s total outstanding debt stands at $362.3 billion and Freddie Mac’s total outstanding debt stands at $389.4 billion. Both of the GSE’s have reduced their outstanding debt by over half.In regard to the aggregate unpaid principal balance for the GSEs’ mortgage portfolios, both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have seen a reduction of over half since the time of conservatorship to the most current report in July 2016. Fannie Mae sits at an aggregated UPB of $308.9 billion compared to an aggregated UPB at the time of conservatorship in September 2008 of $761.4 billion. Likewise, Freddie Mac sits at an aggregated UPB of $319.3 billion in comparison to an aggregated UPB in September 2008 of $736.9 billion.Not everyone shares positive feelings for the FHFA’s conservatorship of the GSEs, however. The subject of GSE reform has long been a hotly contested one among lawmakers and the housing industry. Though both Democrats and Republicans have pushed for GSE reform in recent years, little has been done by Congress to change the conservatorship or even consider a path toward reforming the current system. Recently, however, GSE reform has been hot in the news, with parties on both sides of the aisle making pushes in Congress.In mid-May, 12 right-center organizations wrote a letter that urged Congress to pass the Mulvaney Bill, a GSE reform bill sponsored by Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-South Carolina) that would suspend the GSE’s obligation to fund the National Housing Trust Fund and Capital Magnet Fund until they were better capitalized. The GSEs’ capital buffer, which is currently at $1.2 billion, is required to be wound down to zero by January 1, 2018, which has caused a great deal of consternation among industry stakeholders who are concerned that the GSEs will need another taxpayer-funded bailout.Not long after the press to pass the Mulvaney Bill, a group of 32 Democratic House of Representatives members wrote to Treasury Secretary Jack Lew and FHFA Director Mel Watt to demand reassessment of the Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement (PSPA), which requires the GSEs to have a capital buffer of zero by January 1, 2018. This request came on the back of Watt’s February speech at the Bipartisan Policy Center, when he proclaimed the GSEs’ dwindling capital buffer as one of the biggest risks of conservatorship to date.Additionally, a new bill was proposed by Congressman French Hill (R-Arkansas) in June, called the HR 5505 GSE Review and Reform Act. The bill would require the U.S Treasury Secretary to study the Federal Housing Finance Agency’s conservatorship of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac annually, as well as the impact ending that conservatorship might have. The bill would also require the Treasury to present recommendations to Congress each year on how to progress GSE reform and move toward ending the conservatorship.The next move for the GSEs is still unclear, but one thing is clear: There will not be any movement with GSE reform until the next administration takes office. And the FHFA’s conservatorship of the GSEs, which was intended to be temporary, is eight years old and counting with no end in sight.last_img read more

Bank of America to PHH Its Over

first_img in Daily Dose, News, Origination October 5, 2016 883 Views Bank of America to PHH: It’s Over Bank of America is terminating its private label mortgage origination services agreement with nonbank lender PHH Mortgage Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of New Jersey-based PHH Corporation, according to an 8-K filing by PHH with the Securities and Exchange Commission.Bank of America sent written notice to PHH on September 27, 2016, that it was exercising its right to terminate without cause the agreement pursuant to which PHH Mortgage provides the services on behalf of Bank of America subsidiary Merrill Lynch, according to the filing.The loss of Merrill Lynch originations could mean $45 million less in revenue for PHH for Fiscal Year 2017. The filing states that based on PHH’s estimate of Merrill Lynch’s loan closing volume for 2016, PHH expects Merrill Lynch originations to contribute approximately $45 million in pre-tax earnings for FY2016.The termination of the agreement is effective as of March 31, 2017, according to the filing. Bank of America has the contractual right to request termination and transition assistance for up to 12 months after that date.Bank of America spokesperson Terry Francisco said he believed the bank’s Merrill Lynch clients would be best served by insourcing all consumer lending support through the bank’s internal resources.“We are confident that our originations and servicing support capabilities will provide an excellent experience for our valued Merrill Lynch clients,” Francisco said in an email to MReport.PHH did not immediately respond to a request for comment.The announcement of the termination of the agreement was the second time that Bank of America has pulled part of its Merrill Lynch business from PHH this year. In April, the bank made the decision to handle internally the origination of certain mortgage loan products. At the time, PHH Corporation President and CEO Glen Messina issued a statement saying, “We believe these decisions reflect the broader dynamics in our industry, including higher compliance and other costs associated with a more onerous regulatory environment.”center_img Bank of America mortgage originations PHH Corporation 2016-10-05 Seth Welborn Sharelast_img read more

Earlier this week, the university got a guaranteed price tag of no more than $220 million for the stadium, according to The Coloradoan The overall look is very modern, and should be something that Mike Bobo and the CSU fans will be really excited about opening up in to kick off 2017.The video below with Parker presenting the plans to the Board has a few of the renderings, which can also be seen in further detail here. New Colorado State athletic director Joe Parker was officially announced to the Board of Governors this afternoon, and quickly turned the focus away from him an onto the brand new renderings of the new stadium project that the athletic department has undertaken.Planned to open for the 2017 season, this is the third stadium project that Parker has had his hand in since entering athletic administration, so – as he explained to the Board of Governors – this is not a new experience for him.“I’ve been involved in three stadium projects – the University of Texas, the University of Oklahoma and the University of Michigan – and at the conclusion of all three there was an overwhelmingly positive response from the communities. It’s an engagement opportunity, a chance to engage with current students, our alumni and the community, and you don’t get with an off-campus facility.”last_img read more

Top News Australia captain Steve Smith threw his support behind next year’s day-night Ashes Test against England today — but said one was enough for the series Both Smith and his England counterpart Alastair Cook had previously called for the Ashes Tests which have no problem attracting fans to keep their traditional timing The Aussie skipper had no reservations after the announcement that Adelaide would host the first ever pink-ball Ashes Test but he said one game under floodlights was enough “I’m happy with just the one” said Smith ahead of Thursday’s series opener against Pakistan which will be the maiden day-night Test at Brisbane’s Gabba ground “I think crowds TV ratings and things like that are never an issue in the Ashes “You can just look and see how the last two Adelaide

Indian Express App More Top NewsNew Delhi: Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain on Tuesday appeared before the Income Tax Department which questioned him for over three hours at the Central Revenue Building here in connection with a tax evasion probe against certain Kolkata-based firms Afterwards Jain slammed the I-T department’s move to summon him as "a witness" and said he was the Centre’s "latest victim of vendetta politics" A file photo of Satyendra Jain CNN News 18 He said the allegations against him do not hold water as he had made all the necessary disclosures in his I-T returns and election affidavits "It is a conspiracy to malign my political career" Jain told reporters in a press conference at the Aam Aadmi Party office after his appearance that lasted from around 12 noon to a little over 3 pm AAP leader Sanjay Singh termed Jain’s summoning as "harassment" and emphasised the party and the government "stand by him" The I-T department had last month asked Jain a key member of the AAP Cabinet to appear before the Investigating Officer of the case on 4 October and furnish personal financial details and ITRs for the last four years Jain who worked as an architect before joining politics arrived at the I P Estate office accompanied by party leaders Singh and Ashutosh around 12 noon The I-T department had reportedly recovered documents relating to some transactions being made by at least three Kolkata-based firms and had a link to Jain He said the investments in the three firms were done when he was still in architecture He said at present he is neither a director nor a shareholder in these companies and has no connection with them since July 2013 "They failed to answer as to why I was summoned They are projecting me as a hawala trader I wonder whether the media prepared the questions I was asked by the I-T department or vice-versa I was surprised when they asked me about persons whom I never met and spoke to in my entire life" he said However the day had its share of drama in the form of a slipper attack against Jain Singh and Ashutosh just as they were leaving the I-T office Bhavana Arora who had staged an ink attack on Arvind Kejriwal in January hurled a slipper at the AAP leaders which hit their car She was upset over Kejriwal’s remarks on cross-LoC anti-terror surgical strikes by the army The I-T department officials had claimed they have received records of certain financial transactions connected to Jain after their counterparts in Kolkata recently searched a firm in connection with a tax evasion and alleged illegal financial remittances case Dehradun:Amid ongoing uncertainty over the fate ofHarish Rawat government which will face floor test in Uttarakhand Assembly on 28 March the BJP on Wednesdayclaimed at least five moreMLAs from the Congress-led alliance are ready to jump over to its side "There are at least five more MLAs in the Congress led alliance including some occupying ministerial positions only biding their time to switch over to our side" Chief Spokesman of the Pradesh BJP Munna Singh Chauhan told PTI "They are in touch with us and will happily jump over to our side in case the arithmetic of the state Assembly veers towards a tie during voting in the House on March 28" he said Though he refused to disclose the names Chauhan said they were both from the Congress and its ruling partner the six-member Progressive Democratic Front – a conglomerate of Independents and political parties Uttarakhand Chief Minister Harish Rawat PTI "The resentment against Harish Rawat’s autocratic style of functioning in the party is deeper than it may appear at first sight It is not confined to the nine rebel MLAs who have openly revolted against him There are others equally unhappy and are secretly waiting for a change-over They will align with us as and when the opportunity presents itself" he said Chauhan claimed as per the rules State Assembly Speaker Govind Singh Kunjwal cannot disqualify the nine rebel MLAs under the Anti-Defection law "The law is very clear in this regard The Speaker can disqualify a member under the anti-defection law only on two grounds One defying party whip in the House and two defecting to another party None of these apply to the nine rebel MLAs who have neither violated the whip nor defected to any other group or party" he said Elaborating on this Chauhan said how can the "rebel MLAs be accused of defying the party whip when the Speaker himself disallowed a division of votes on the appropriation bill in the House" Even if the Speaker’s announcement that the appropriation bill was "passed by voice vote by implication means there was no violation of the party whip" he contended "However if the Speaker ventures into any kind of adventurism and rushes to disqualify the rebel MLAs his action will not stand the scrutiny in a court of law" he warned Uttarakhand Assembly has an effective strength of 70 MLAs excluding a nominated member who does not have voting rights With nine of its MLAs aligning with BJP Congress is left with only 27 members of its own besides six members of PDF who are backing Harish Rawat government BJP on the other hand has 28 MLAs including Bhim Lal Arya whose loyalty is "doubtful" Though winning on a BJP ticket Arya makes no bones about his views against the party which has suspended him Hence the party is counting primarily on 27 MLAs of its own and the nine Congress rebels The Congress has pinned all its hopes on the prospect of the Speaker disqualifying the nine rebels which will reduce the effective strength of the House to 61 and also reduce the requirement for a simple majority to 31 It is likely to make Harish Rawat’s task easier who may sail through the floor test with a total of 33 MLAs — Congress’ 27 and PDF’s six However BJP said Rawat could not even take PDF’s support for granted as its constituents were mostly "independent entities" who did not have to prove their loyalty to a political party and could switch their allegiance PTI Written by C Raja Mohan | Published: April 18 2012 12:10 am Related News Snubbing Moscow One would think Beijing
