Estimated $17 Billion April Credit Gain Only $8.2 Billion

first_img The Federal Reserve 2017-06-12 Brianna Gilpin Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Related Articles Previous: CalyxSoftware to Host Second National User Conference Next: Supreme Court: Secondary Markets Not Subject to FDCPA Regulations June 12, 2017 1,496 Views Recently, the April 2017 Consumer Credit report was released, revealing all of the outstanding credit extended to individuals for household, family, and other personal expenses, excluding loans and real estate for the past month. April marked the smallest increase in consumer borrowing in six years. The Federal Reserve reported total consumer credit rising 2.6 percent, increasing the $8.2 billion in April compared to March’s revised $19.5 billion. According to MarketWatch, economists estimated a $17 billion gain in consumer credit for April.The Consumer Credit Report covers the two main types of credit: revolving and nonrevolving. April showed a slight increase in nonrevolving credit, which is closed-end credit for consumers who will repay on an arranged repayment schedule—mainly for motor vehicle or education loans. This main source of credit growth rose at an annual rate of 2.9 percent, its slowest pace since August 2011.Revolving credit, mostly credit cards secured or unsecured by collateral allowing consumers to borrow a prearranged limit and pay back in one or more installments, increased 1.8 percent in April at an annual rate. This is quite a drop from March’s 6.5 percent increase.According to MarketWatch, two-thirds of U.S. economic growth comes from consumer spending, which was also at a slow start for the year. Consumer spending rose at a 0.6 percent annual rate in the first quarter, which is down from 2016 Q2 growth of 3.5 percent and spurred a Q1 GDP growth rate of 1.2 percent annually.In an effort to help consumers better understand what is going on in consumer credit, this Friday Equifax Investor Relations Doug Brandberg and Jeff Dodge along with Equifax Chief Economist Amy Crews-Cutts will host a live webcast on their Quarterly United States Consumer Credit Trends reports. Cutts will discuss frequently asked questions and show how to best digest the data in the reports.For more information, click here.

Florida Legislature fails to pass medical marijuana law

first_imgThe Florida legislature fails to pass law on medical marijuana Following the approval of Constitutional Amendment 2 in last November’s general election legalizing medical marijuana in Florida, the Florida Legislature was required to approve the governing legislation. However, despite  bills tabled in the Florida House and Senate the Legislature adjourned its 2017 session on May 5, without passing the legislation. As a result, It’s now left to the Florida Department of Health (FDOH) to finalize the necessary guidelines.Under the terms of the constitutional Amendment approved by 71 percent of Florida voters. the Florida legislature should have established the law on which the FDOH would write the guidelines.While the House and Senate agreed on most proposals for the required legislation, the negotiations broke down over the number of medical marijuana dispensaries operating in the state.The Senate’s proposal limited the number of dispensaries licensed growers could operate. The House’s proposal  placed no limits on the dispensaries. This would have offered a free market, competitive system which some House members believed would place better quality medical marijuana on the market.The failure of the Legislature has prompted those pushing for legalized medical marijuana to call on Governor Rick Scott to convene a special Legislative Session to pass the law.Those making the call include Orlando Attorney John Morgan who initiated the constitutional amendment, and Ben Pollara who led the campaign for the approval of the amendment.Pollara said although the FDOH has the responsibility to implement operations of medical marijuana, “the required implementation legislation is needed.”Earlier this year, the FDOH held a series of town hall meetings across Florida to get the public’s input re the required medical marijuana operational guidelines. Accordingly, the agency had prepared draft operational guidelines, awaiting the law passed by the Florida Legislature.Without the law, the onus is now on the FDOH to finalize the public policy governing marijuana growers, patients, doctors, and other related interests. However, Pollara anticipates whatever policy the FDOH prepares it will be subject to lawsuits from various sources.Pollara said “When we wrote Amendment 2, we were very aware the Legislature wouldn’t immediately live up to the access now codified in the constitution. We knew this was likely to go to court at some point.”Meanwhile, responding to the call for a special Legislative Session, a representative of the governor’s office said its “ reviewing all necessary options.”last_img read more

SOA + BPM: EAI evolves

first_imgAcronym and lovers of jargon have celebrated a pleasant holiday.  A new Forrester Wave study that came out just before Christmas created new BPM-space acronyms.  Forrester now divides BPM into two halves: IC-BPMS (Integration-Centric Business Process Management Suite) and HC-BPMS (Human-Centric Business Process Management Suite) . Other than the convoluted names, the study has some valuable information, and the report has been made available free by a number of vendors who placed well among the thirteen companies covered, like webMethods.Forrester had previously covered a space called “integration suite” representing products with Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) capabilities, but they found that the introduction of SOA technology has changed the space.  EAI has now evolved into IC-BPMS. Part of the reason for the switch in naming is that they think that product offerings over just the last 4-5 years have changed dramatically.  Vendor offerings that had been closed and proprietary are now standards-based, and most vendors have also augmented their products to include embedded Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) and enhanced Business Process Management (BPM) capabilities.The Forrester study looked at 85 different criteria and found that webMethods, TIBCO Software, IBM, and Sun were the category leaders, based on their strengths in connection, BPM and SOA.IC-BPMS products allow composite applications to be constructed using model-based tools and to blend structured, unstructured and metadata stored in SOA-based registries and repositories.  The tools in the category promote reusability of all system components: services, code and data.HC-BPMS products have their origins with workflow and imaging and typically involve intensive human interaction.The report emphasizes a synergy and overlap between capabilities in BPM and SOA and suggest that companies should try to achieve the benefits of both with new implementations.webMethods was considered the leader in this category, although it is the smallest of the top-ranked vendors.  Somewhat of a surprise, Sun ranked well too because of their 2005 acquisition of SeeBeyond Technologies, a company with a J2EE-based solution.last_img read more

first_imgThe Eagles Mens 20’s have suffered enormously as a team in recent weeks. Their son, their friend, their brother, their team mate, Kieran Luland was killed in a tragic car accident in late January.Team mate Anthony Cowan was also involved in the accident, not long after he had attended the Australian Under 18’s camp and the accident sent shock waves around the Australian Touch community. The Eagles players, their team management, friends and family banded together, supporting their young men, as well as their mentor and assistant coach, Ricky Luland, Kieran’s father.On Monday night they honoured their lost team mate in the best way they could, with the 2006 National Touch League Mens 20’s title.Wearing leg bands with the words ‘Kieran Luland, 8, Kakadu’, the crowd who had stayed for the final were witness to a team intensely focused and committed to each other, a team with a desire to honour their friend and a team that performed in such a way it brought tears to the eyes of all.In honour of ‘Kakadu’ (Kieran’s nickname) and his number 8 jersey, the Eagles amazed the crowd with their silky smooth skills and incredible pace. With great support from family members and local viewers, the side capped their most difficult time together with an 8-5 title win.For those who stayed to watch the presentations and the celebrations, they were like no other gone before them.Anthony Cowan was named as Player of the Final, scoring two touchdowns and setting up several others, a remarkable feat considering the time he spent in hospital recovering from injuries sustained in the accident.He also spoke as team captain, explaining to all how Kieran was the heart of their team, how they had played for him, that they knew he was there watching. The depth of passion and respect these young men held for Kieran was made incredibly obvious. It was fantastic to see the family and friends supporting their side, the young children following them around like heroes, the cameras and videos well in hand.For the team, the meaning in each handshake and hug, the relief, the passion, the emotion as all let their guards down and hugged and cried together was an honour to witness.For Ricky Luland, the moment was understandably emotional, as he hugged and spoke privately with all of the players. It was the added emotion of caring deeply for the group of boys that have been playing and growing together for several years, seeing them develop as a team that can now call themselves national champions.For coach David Scholes, himself a quiet achiever, the win was a result of the hard work of his team, the way they had pulled together and stuck by each other through the most difficult of times.For the spectators, it was a privilege to see the hearts of these players, these coaches, these family and friends and it will never be forgotten. It was an honour to the team and most importantly, it was an honour to Kieran.last_img read more

Mens hockey team bonds over bowling

Ohio State men’s hockey coach Mark Osiecki wanted to let the team relax and focus a few days before the playoff series against Lake Superior State. So he took them bowling. Osiecki, in his first season as the Buckeyes’ coach, said he had done this with previous teams and likes the idea. “It’s something I’ve done in the past,” Osiecki said. “We wanted to create team togetherness.” The players, who say they had no idea Osiecki was going to do this, ended up bowling with the lower half of their hockey equipment on. “He made us wear our bottom-half gear, so a lot of guys had on their shin guards and pants and stuff. So it was a little awkward, but it was a lot of fun,” junior goalie Cal Heeter said. “Everyone was laughing and having a good time.” Senior forward Peter Boyd said he was surprised by the idea but thought the team did a good job of taking it in. “I thought it was a great idea,” he said, “and the guys really responded well to it.” The Buckeyes (15-16-4, 10-14-4 CCHA) have lost nine of their past 11 games. They will take on Lake Superior State (10-15-9, 8-12-8 CCHA) in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., in the first round of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association Tournament. The best-of-three series will match up the ninth-seeded Buckeyes with the eighth-seeded Lakers. When the teams played each other Feb. 18–19 in Columbus, Lake Superior State winning the first game in a shootout, and OSU winning the second one, 5-2. But Boyd said he isn’t looking at what has happened this season, just what the team has ahead of it. “Playoff hockey is a new season,” he said. If the Buckeyes win the series against the Lakers, they could play Michigan, Notre Dame or Miami (Ohio), depending on who wins the other first-round series. Friday’s game is scheduled for 7:35 p.m. Saturday’s and Sunday’s (if necessary) are scheduled for 7:05 p.m. read more
