Tagged with: Bill Coronavirus Government The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days agocenter_img Work on the Democrat-proposed Families First Coronavirus Response Act continued Thursday afternoon as Democrat and Republican lawmakers attempted to reach a compromise.  Politico reports that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin are working to reach a deal before Congress goes into a week-long recess. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky), however, called the proposal an “ideological wish list.” McConnell also said Thursday that the Senate could cancel a planned recess and stay in session. ____Original story appears below.House Democrats Wednesday evening introduced a multi-billion-dollar bill in response to the COVID-19 outbreak that includes emergency provisions with paid sick leave, free testing, food aid, and unemployment insurance, according to Politico. The report states the House is expected to vote on the measure Thursday afternoon. Republicans and the White House are aware of the provisions in the bill, but Politico states they have not announced their position on the legislation. “The Families First Coronavirus Response Act is focused directly on providing support for America’s families, who must be our first priority in this emergency,” said Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi in a statement. “We cannot fight coronavirus effectively unless everyone in our country who needs to be tested knows they can get their test free of charge.  We cannot slow the coronavirus outbreak when workers are stuck with the terrible choice between staying home to avoid spreading illness and the paycheck their family can’t afford to lose.”Rep. Bobby Scott (D-Virginia) said on Twitter Thursday morning that the Families First Coronavirus Response Act provides people with health coverage, food assistance, and financial support they need to cope with “widespread consequences” of COVID-19. “This bill reflects our responsibility to stand with the American people as we confront this crisis,” Scott said on social media. Politico added that the proposal came after President Donald Trump’s Oval Office Address Wednesday evening. The President announced several emergency measures, including a 30-day ban on foreign nationals entering the U.S. from many European countries. During his address, Trump called for a payroll tax to millions to help alleviate the economic issues the virus has caused. “Alarmingly, the president did not say how the administration will address the lack of coronavirus testing kits throughout the United States,” Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said in a joint statement late Wednesday.”Smart action today will prevent the spread of the virus tomorrow,” the President stated during his address. Insurance companies will also be waiving copayments on coronavirus treatments and extend payments for these treatments. President Trump also announced his plan for workers who will need to be staying home.”I will soon be taking emergency action, which is unprecedented, to provide financial relief,” President Trump said. “This will be targeted at workers who are ill, quarantined, or caring for others due to coronavirus.”President Trump is also instructing the small business administration to provide capital liquidity to affected firms, and he stated he will be asking Congress to increase funding for this program by an additional $50 billion.During an address at the Oval Office, President Trump said he does not support the proposed House bill because it has items that have “nothing to do” with the disease.FHFA Director Dr. Mark Calabria in a statement, “To meet the needs of borrowers who may be impacted by the coronavirus, last week Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac reminded mortgage servicers that hardship forbearance is an option for borrowers who are unable to make their monthly mortgage payment. For borrowers that may be experiencing a hardship, I encourage you to reach out to your servicer. The Enterprises and the Federal Home Loan Banks continue to provide support to the secondary mortgage market, and the UMBS market continues to operate at its normal level.”Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee, sent letters to Administration officials, regulators, and credit reporting agencies expressing concerns about risks related to COVID-19 and the steps they are taking to prevent Americans and the financial system from being harmed.“While our federal regulators, agencies, and financial institutions must take action to protect consumers and our economy, I must emphasize that it is unacceptable to use this crisis as an excuse to justify rollbacks of important financial regulations that are in place to protect our financial system and economy,” Congresswoman Waters wrote in her letter.

first_imgThe psychedelic electronic project, Shpongle, has announced its final live performance, which will take place at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre on May 3rd and 4th of 2019. Headed by Simon Posford, also known as the producer Hallucinogen, and Raja Ram, the duo have pioneered the psybient genre, which fuses hints of world music with the ambient and trance genres.While Posford has frequently performed Shpongle DJ sets around the country, it’s rare that the full Shpongle LIVE experience comes together with both Posford and Raja Ram and a slew of other performers, including drummer Joe Russo. These concerts are known for their immersive experience, which also includes trippy dancers and artists to supplement the performance.As Joe Russo noted on his Facebook page, “This is it!!! I’m honored to have been performing with this incredible group for the better part of the last decade. THESE WILL BE THE FINAL Shpongle (Simon Posford) LIVE SHOWS! I can’t think of a better place than Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre to say goodbye. Make sure to grab tickets. These will go fast! <3 …puts on face paint………”However, while these shows will certainly close a chapter of Shpongle’s enduring history, this does not mean that the project will totally be coming to an end. Per a statement on Shpongle’s website, “Although this is their last full public concert, Shpongle will continue to enchant and delight with future studio recordings and album releases.”Tickets for Shpongle LIVE’s final performances at Red Rocks on May 3rd and 4th, 2019, go on sale on Friday, September 28th, at 10 a.m. MT.last_img read more

first_imgUSC’s administration requires all greek organizations on campus to adhere to a comprehensive code of regulations to better control parties and other large events.The 11-page list of event rules explains in detail the standards that USC plans to hold all of its fraternities and sororities to in a new format with clearer instructions and expectations. The list contains dozens of specific rules regarding monitoring party guests, limiting the number of guests allowed at events and controlling the consumption and serving of alcohol.Some of the rules involving guests specify that all events with alcohol must have a guest list, which is prepared and submitted to Fraternity and Sorority Leadership Development at least 24 hours before an event. The guest list must then be updated and resubmitted at least 48 hours after the event in order to account for any additional guests.The new rules also mandate that a bodyguard be hired for every 50 anticipated guests.Students have always had to register their parties in advance and all chapter leaders were informed of to the expectations in place when it came to alcohol, guests and permissions. The recently published guidelines are intended to complement the training provided to chapter officers.“The guidelines were developed to meet the health and wellness and safety needs of the community, aligned with industry standards for insurance and safety, national organization risk management standards and peer institutions,” said Jenell Lanski, director of the Office for Fraternity and Sorority Leadership Development.In the past, security was always present, but there was no minimum requirement of security guards. Also, fraternities often only submitted guest lists with male students for approval. This new policy adds onto the rule that prohibits using open Facebook groups or mass advertising to notify students of upcoming greek events. Instead, greek houses must take an invite-only approach to all future events.Though the newly published guidebook may seem stringent, according to Interfraternity Council Executive Vice President of Administrative Affairs Peter Roberson, these rule changes won’t change a lot about how fraternities and sororities operate.“Honestly, the rules haven’t really changed that much,” Roberson said. “Jenell and her team have mostly just strengthened a few rules and brought to light some old or forgotten ones.”last_img read more

first_imgClippers guard Austin Rivers left the game in the final seconds of the first half after running into the elbow of Orlando’s Jonathan Simmons, and did not return. The team said Rivers suffered a concussion and will sit out Friday’s game at Washington.Much of the scoring power of both teams was sidelined by injuries, but the Clippers shot 54 percent in the second half.“We don’t have the luxury of talent where we’re going to out-talent the other team. Every night we find somebody to help us score. Tonight Sam (Dekker) helped us. Lou was Lou,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said.Simmons scored 20 points for the Magic, who have lost 14 of 17. Mario Hezonja added 17 points and nine rebounds in his second start of the season.Making only eight of their first 30 shots, the Clippers fell behind by 12 points midway through the second quarter. But Williams connected on three 3-pointers and Rivers added one during a 14-0 run, and the Clippers (11-15) outscored Orlando 24-7 over the final seven minutes of the first half. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “I tend to earn the trust of my coaches,” said Williams, who made 11 of 22 shots and added eight assists. “This is my 13th year. I’m a veteran guy. Teams that sign me understand what they’re getting and I don’t think it’s any different for Doc.”Nikola Vucevic hit a mid-range jumper to put the Magic (11-18) up 55-54 midway through the third quarter, but Williams answered quickly with a basket to regain the lead for the Clippers permanently.“We got up 10 or 12, then didn’t play with enough energy,” said Vucevic, who had 14 points and 12 rebounds. “There wasn’t much excitement, there wasn’t much going on. It was just flat out there. We could never get a good flow or good rhythm. Even if we get a block, we wouldn’t run it down the court the way we can.”The shooting of Williams and Dekker, both of whom came off the bench, helped the Clippers expand their lead to 16 points with three minutes left.EVERY GAME IS DIFFERENT“The one thing when you have all these injuries: Every game is different,” Doc Rivers said. “You can’t plan on being the team you’re going to be the next night. You’ve just got to figure it out during the game, play combinations you thought you’d never play and just try to steal the game.”TIP-INSClippers: As expected, forward Danilo Gallinari is not on the trip due to a left glute contusion. … The team improved to 3-4 since forward Blake Griffin was lost for up to two months with a left MCL strain.Magic: With forward Aaron Gordon (concussion) and guard Arron Afflalo (back spasms) out, the active roster included four players from the G League’s Lakeland Magic. One was rookie forward Wes Iwundu, who made his first NBA start. … Rookie forward Jonathan Isaac hopes to return to practice Thursday after missing 17 games with a sprained right ankle.center_img PreviousLos Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan (6) and guard Jawun Evans (1) celebrate after a score during the second half of an NBA basketball game against the Orlando Magic Wednesday, Dec. 13, 2017, in Orlando, Fla.
