I am honored to assume this role and cannot give enough thanks to LaWayne and CAP’s Executive Director Mo Hyman for entrusting me to advance CAP’s policies and guiding principles,” said Zachar.“I am committed to continuing to use education and literacy as a platform to close the opportunity gap for as many students as possible,” she said.Zachar will preside over the rollout of CAP’s new five-year strategic plan, “which reinforces the organization’s long-held core beliefs to be student-centered and student-celebrating and critical of institutional barriers to college access,” the statement said.“Zachar, like all CAP board members and staff, is optimistic in uplifting students and advocating for systems change,” the statement continued. “CAP provides essential college access and success resources and advocacy to students, their families, and their community of supporters as they create a path to and through higher education despite historical and persisting barriers, such as those based on family income, racial-ethnic identity, citizenship status, and rigid definitions of achievement.”Zachar’s first public event as CAP board chair will come on Oct. 11 at the group’s socially distanced scavenger hunt fundraiser.More information is available at collegeaccessplan.org/events.

Lund (EVP), requested that Judge Paul Crotty in the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of New York grant them summary judgment on the grounds that the SEC had not shown evidence that the GSE misled or made false statements to investors about its subprime portfolio.The SEC sued the Fannie Mae executives in December 2011, claiming that they attempted to shield from investors the amount of subprime and high risk mortgage loans held by the Agency by omitting two types of loans known as Expanded Approval and MyCommunityLoans from financial statements.”Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac executives told the world that their subprime exposure was substantially smaller than it really was,” said Robert Khuzami, Director of the SEC’s Enforcement Division, at the time the lawsuit was filed. “These material misstatements occurred during a time of acute investor interest in financial institutions’ exposure to subprime loans, and misled the market about the amount of risk on the company’s books. All individuals, regardless of their rank or position, will be held accountable for perpetuating half-truths or misrepresentations about matters materially important to the interest of our country’s investors.”The executives responded by saying that Expanded Approval and MyCommunityLoans, which were intended for borrowers with weaker credit, were excluded from the financial statements because they did not qualify as subprime loans under Fannie Mae’s own qualification guidelines, according to reports. The defendants contend that investors had access to the Fannie Mae guidelines that define a subprime loan, and that a reasonable investor could have used that information to make informed judgments as to the Agency’s involvement in subprime loans or any other type of mortgage loan.According to reports, the SEC’s complaint alleged that a Fannie Mae 2007 public filing said that the extent of Agency’s involvement in single-family subprime mortgage loans amounted to $4.8 billion; however, the Agency held more than $57 billion worth of Expanded Approval and MyCommunityMortgage loans. In February 2008, which was seven months before Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were taken into conservatorship by the Federal Housing Finance Agnecy, Fannie Mae reportedly had $90 billion worth of loans on the books but claimed only a small percentage of that was subprime loans. Crotty rejected a motion by the defendants in 2012 to have the SEC lawsuit dismissed; at that time, the judge called it “misleading” to not count Expanded Approval and MyCommunityMortgage Loans as subprime loans.

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Late in the fourth quarter, Syracuse freshman back Olivia Graham found herself in enemy territory, making a run with the ball down the left sideline and into the shooting circle. She beat a Virginia defender, but UVA’s goalie, Lauren Hausheer, sprinted off her line and slide tackled Graham, sweeping her feet out from under her before she could shoot. Once she returned to her feet, Graham incredulously waved her hands at the ref, who didn’t blow his whistle.“I thought the call was gonna be a stroke because she didn’t touch the ball at all,” Graham said after the game. “In the moment I just really wanted to score.”On Friday evening, perhaps the biggest difference between No. 19 Syracuse (5-2, 0-1 Atlantic Coast) and No. 5 Virginia (6-1, 1-0) was the Cavaliers’ toughness. Graham’s late-game collision was just one of several examples of that. The shots on goals were even. So were the penalty corner opportunities. The ACC teams were locked in a 0-0 stalemate for 43 minutes, but Virginia fought harder for loose balls, shut off Syracuse’s offensive runs with authority and wore down the Orange to score two second half goals and win 2-0.“We just have to, like, stay in the game and focus on ourselves again,” midfielder Carolin Hoffmann said, “If a team plays physical, we (need to) make it to our advantage.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textEarlier in the game, in the third quarter, Hoffmann intercepted a pass in the midfield and started a counter-attack. But the Orange weren’t able to develop a rush, because Virginia’s Rachel Robinson body-checked Hoffmann off the ball, leading to a brief verbal confrontation and a yellow card.At another point, a UVA midfielder tripped up SU junior Claire Cooke. After the foul, Cooke tried to restart the play, but the UVA defender got in her way and blocked her path, which angered Cooke, Bradley and the rest of the Syracuse bench. From the bleachers, a fan called the officiating a “circus.”In total, the Cavaliers’ physical brand of field hockey earned them six cards — two yellows and four greens — to SU’s one. The cards caused the Cavaliers to play almost the entire fourth quarter with a one-player disadvantage. Typically, Bradley wants her team to “amp up pressure” when it has an advantage, and place a forward close to the net for scoring opportunities. But Syracuse couldn’t capitalize, which Bradley blamed on the team’s “immaturity.”“And that’s on me as a coach,” Bradley said. “With the cards, I think we just got a little chaotic and didn’t realize that’s an advantage for us.”Even though Virginia’s physical play gave Syracuse trouble, SU controlled most of the game. At the end of the third quarter, Syracuse had out-shot UVA nine to four. Bradley said Syracuse dominated statistically. But Virginia’s penalty corner goal late in the third quarter, and another two minutes into the fourth, put the Cavaliers on top.Virginia’s physicality caught up to Syracuse when it fell behind and tried to mount a comeback in the fourth quarter. SU registered just one shot in the fourth quarter despite three Virginia cards.After the final buzzer sounded, forward Chiara Gutsche dropped her stick and bent over near midfield, placing her hands on her knees. After a few seconds, she gingerly limped to the team huddle. Gutsche was physically and emotionally defeated, just as the scoreboard indicated.

Rivera further noted that the Washington Football Team has a backup plan in case he is unable to continue.While the head coach did not get into details, current Washington defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio could be the likely candidate to take over the reins, if needed. Del Rio, 57, served as the head coach of Jacksonville Jaguars between 2003 and 2011 and Oakland Raiders between 2015 and 2017. Del Rio joined Washington alongside Ron Rivera in January of this year. Also Read | Fox Says Brennaman Won’t Announce NFL Games After SlurSince his appointment as the head coach of the Washington Football Team, Ron Rivera has overseen a period of transition at the franchise. The organisation was forced to drop its controversial ‘Redskins’ nickname after pressure from sponsors, fans and political groups reached its pinnacle. The experienced NFL coach has reportedly been a key figure in trying to keep the football matters separate from the off-field issues. If reports are to be believed, Rivera will have a role in helping decide the new team name and mascot for the franchise. Having played for the Chicago Bears between 1984 and 1992, Rivera started as a defensive quality control coach at the Bears before quickly moving to other coaching endeavours at teams like Philadelphia Eagles and San Diego Chargers (now LA Chargers). His first and only head coach job came with the Carolina Panthers, where he spent nine years. The 58-year-old led the Panthers to the Super Bowl after going 15-1 during the 2015 regular season. While the Panthers were eventually beaten in Super Bowl 50 to the Denver Broncos, Rivera picked up NFL Coach of the Year award, his second in three years, that season. Rivera left the Panthers with a 76-63-1 (win-loss-tie) record, reaching the playoff four times in nine seasons. On January 1, 2020, Rivera became the 30th coach of the Washington Football Team. Also Read | Falcons’ Neal, Back From Achilles Injury, Feels 100 PercentAlso Read | Chiefs To Prohibit Native American Imagery At Arrowhead(Image Credits: AP) 2 weeks ago Ex-Washington RB Derrius Guice accused of sexual assault by two former LSU students COMMENT WE RECOMMEND First Published: 21st August, 2020 10:47 ISTlast_img read more
