NAFCU’s Thaler asks for signers on letter urging CFPB to exempt credit unions

first_imgNAFCU Vice President of Legislative Affairs Brad Thaler is urging U.S. House members to sign the bipartisan draft letter being circulated by Reps. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and Steve Stivers, R-Ohio, asking CFPB to exempt credit unions and community banks from certain rulemakings.“Exempting credit unions from rulemakings intended for larger financial institutions would result in significant, immediate regulatory relief that would allow credit unions to better serve their members,” Thaler wrote in a message to all House members Thursday.Schiff and Stivers’ letter praises credit unions and community banks for their focus on local lending and community development. The signers will urge Cordray to use CFPB’s authority under Section 1022(b)(3)(a) in the Dodd-Frank Act to adapt regulations by exempting “any class” of entity from its rulemakings.NAFCU was the only credit union trade association to oppose CFPB having rulemaking authority over credit unions. continue reading » 6SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Half-time: Chelsea 0 Man City 0

first_imgNew manager Rafael Benitez was barracked by disgruntled Chelsea fans as he took charge of his first game.It has been an emotion-charged afternoon at Stamford Bridge following the sad news that legendary ex-Blues boss Dave Sexton died today.Benitez, unpopular among Chelsea fans from his time at Liverpool, was greeted by jeers before a rousing minute’s applause for Sexton, who led the club to their 1970 FA Cup triumph and the European Cup Winners’ Cup the following year.And on 16 minutes the home crowd demonstrated their feelings by chanting the name of sacked manager Roberto Di Matteo, who wore the number 16 shirt during his time as a player at Chelsea.On the pitch, the first half produced little of note before Sergio Aguero missed a great chance to put City ahead when he headed straight at keeper Petr Cech.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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

LiveCode Extends Its Development Platform to Android

first_imgWhat it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … LiveCode, an alternative tool for developing mobile apps designed for those who don’t want to use Objective-C, C++ or Java, has now extended its development environment from iOS to now include Android. This platform lets developers create apps using one code base for multiple platforms, including mobile, desktop and Web, while still taking advantage of OS-specific features. The code itself is written in a high-level language, using English-like syntax, for ease of use, and the apps are built in a compile-free environment, which means it’s fast, too.What’s LiveCode? Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement In order to access the OS-specific features of various platforms, LiveCode uses deployments packs, which are provided for a number of other platforms, including Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, various Web browsers, plus iOS and Android.The name comes from the fact that code is not compiled, meaning it’s always “live.” This allows developers to see changes in real-time, which can speed up the development process. RunRev, the company behind LiveCode, said it surveyed 670 developers working on 415 projects and found that those developers saved 51 days of development time by using the LiveCode platform instead of Java or Objective-C. One-third of those surveyed said they would not have been able to complete their project without LiveCode, due to complexities or limitations in traditional programming languages.While apps created with LiveCode can certainly become the final end product of a developer’s efforts, the platform serves another purpose too: active prototypes. With LiveCode, in-house developers and development teams can quickly and easily produce rich-media, cross-platform apps for use internally.LiveCode for AndroidThe newest addition, LiveCode for Android, supports the following features at present:Rendering of controls with non-system themes (default is Motif theme)Date and Time HandlingMulti-touch eventsShakeGradients, graphic effects and blendingNon platform, non system dependent syntaxObject snapshot commandInclude file/foldersAccelerometer support (if present)Ask / answer password dialogsSound playbackAdditional features and updates will come rapidly, the company promises.LiveCode starts at $99.
