by: Henry MeierWith apologies to those of you who have the temerity to consider football boring, yesterday afternoon the credit union industry was granted the legal equivalent of a referee reversing his call based on an instant replay review. Not just any ruling, instead of the game being over, NCUA can continue to fight to reclaim funds on behalf of credit unions.Specifically, I am referring to a ruling by the Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit which revived a lawsuit NCUA brought against Barclays Capital, Inc. seeking more than half a billion dollars for the role it played in issuing mortgage-backed securities sold to the now defunct U.S. Central Federal Credit Union and Western Corporate Federal Credit Union. NCUA is essentially claiming that the bank violated security laws by failing to accurately disclose the quality of mortgages in mortgage-backed-securities purchased by these entities. As you all remember, these and other securities tumbled in value in less time than it took House Republicans to demonstrate that they still don’t know how to govern.If successful, NCUA would use these funds to offset credit union premiums paid into the Temporary Credit Union Stabilization Fund. All this is a rather long winded way of saying that the success of this and other lawsuits could directly impact your credit union’s bottom line. continue reading » 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr

Lille president Gerard Lopez told AFP Anelka will “work with players ranging from 14 years old up to the reserve team”.Described as a future star of the France team when he made his professional debut with Paris Saint-Germain in 1996, Anelka went on to enjoy a globe-trotting career that took him from Arsenal to Mumbai via some of the biggest clubs in Europe including a stint at Real Madrid.After a return to PSG (2000-2002) he went on loan to Liverpool before joining Manchester City (2002-2005), Fenerbahce, Bolton and Chelsea, where he played his last meaningful campaigns in 2008-2012.At the 2010 World Cup in South Africa Anelka’s France career came to an abrupt and controversial end.He was handed an 18-match ban by the French Football Federation (FFF) after insults aimed at coach Raymond Domenech sparked the now infamous Knysna players’ strike.Anelka ended his playing career in 2015 after 13 games with Mumbai City in the Indian top flight, whom he also briefly coached.Lille coach Christophe Galtier said Anelka, now 39, was happy to cut his coaching teeth “out of the spotlight”.“Nicolas is really enthusiastic. He wants to stay out of the spotlight and bring some of his striking expertise and know-how to our young players,” said Galtier.“But for the moment he does not want to get involved with the professionals.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
