She is the past producer of BIZTV, a national television network for businesses and entrepreneurs that reached more than 200,000 professionals. She has more than 15 years’ experience in healthcare marketing and was an advertising exec for Healthcare Journal of Baton Rouge, a trade publication focused on the healthcare industry, as well as the marketing director for a $5 million surgery center. Bacot is a graduate of Louisiana State University with a degree in Marketing and Communications. She resides in Dallas when she’s not pursuing her love of travel. On Thursday, the House Financial Services Committee held a hearing titled, “Putting Consumers First? A SemiAnnual Review of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.” While the first panel of this two-panel hearing included testimony by Kathy Kraninger, Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), the second panel focused on a discussion on the draft of legislation titled Consumers First Act that was introduced by Chairwoman Maxine Waters and co-sponsored by 28 members of the committee.The second panel included testimonies from Hilary Shelton, Director & SVP for Advocacy and Policy, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People; Linda Jun, Senior Policy Counsel, Americans for Financial Reform; Jennifer Davis, Government Relations Deputy Director, National Military Family Association; Seth Frontman, Executive Director, Student Borrower Protection Center; and Scott Weltman, Managing Shareholder, Weltman, Weinberg & Reis Co., L.P.A.In her opening statement during the hearing, Chairwoman Maxine Waters highlighted the committee’s concerns with the CFPB. She said that the committee expected “ Kathy Kraninger to answer for Mick Mulvaney” and that the current administration at the CFPB  had “stripped the office of its ability to enforce fair lending, giving lenders a free pass to abuse servicemembers.” She questioned Kraninger, about the agency’s commitment to addressing these concerns. “The Committee does not believe Kraninger is doing enough to foster transparency and accountability or to change issues raised during her predecessor, Mick Mulvaney’s 13-month tenure,” Waters said. Some of the key questions asked of Kraninger by the committee during the hearing focused on consumer complaints, supervision and enforcement of the bureau staff, fair lending enforcement, staff diversity, and spending. On being asked how her relations with the White House influenced her decisions at the bureau, Kraninger maintained her decisions were not influenced and nor had the administration attempted to influence the CFPB. During her recent three month tour, Kraninger said that she had spoken with lenders and consumers “on the ground” and had a strong argument in defense of her initiatives and the Bureau’s ability to protect consumers, stating, “the Bureau is stronger at this time, not weaker” and that it was on the right track. Kraninger defended claims that sufficient efforts were not being made to police predatory lending. During the second panel, Waters said that her legislation, the Consumers First Act, would direct the new CFPB leadership to reverse all “anti-consumer actions” taken under Mulvaney’s leadership, including by resuming the previously authorized supervision of financial firms for Military Lending Act compliance; restoring the supervisory and enforcement powers of the Office of Fair Lending and Equal Opportunity; reestablishing a dedicated student loan office; requiring adequate agency staffing, including for supervision and enforcement; limiting the number of political appointees the CFPB may hire to address allegations that they suppressed the work of dedicated, professional staff; and reinstating the Consumer Advisory Board that was “effectively terminated by Mr. Mulvaney with protections to ensure consumer voices are well represented, and that diversity and inclusion is promoted on the agency’s advisory boards.”See a video of the hearing here.center_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Subscribe Home / Daily Dose / Kraninger: “The Bureau Is Stronger at This Time” The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News March 7, 2019 1,730 Views Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago About Author: Stephanie Bacot Previous: HUD Offers Foreclosure Relief to Tornado Victims Next: Five Star Global and AM&AA Partnership: Positioned for Growth Tagged with: Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Consumers First Act House Financial Services Committee Kathy Kraninger mulvaney Waterslast_img read more

Collect-a-Book sparks children’s love of reading

first_imgPresent to add a bit of colour and energy to the visits was the Collect-a-Can mascot, the CANman, who had boxes of reading books in tow for the schools to add to their libraries in exchange for the cans the pupils and school staff had collected for recycling. (Images: Collect-a-Can SA)Together with partners and stakeholders, Collect-a-Can’s (a can recovery and recycling organisation), Collect-a-Book initiative has managed to collect approximately 3000 books that they hope will help foster a love of reading literature among the five underprivileged schools they had identified to receive these books.About 3 000 books were donated by Collect-a-Book to five underprivileged schools, in the hopes they would spark a love of reading in the children.Collect-a-Book is an offshoot of Collect-a-Can, the well-known can recovery and recycling organisation. A number of partners joined the initiative, which was Collect-a-Can’s effort to mark Mandela Month this year. It tied into Nelson Mandela’s love of reading and his belief in the role the youth had to play in transforming South Africa as a whole.The books were handed over to the schools on 23 and 24 July; on the days, the pupils were treated to fun-filled interactive reading with volunteers and staff, who were on hand to help make it a time to remember.Zimasa Velaphi, Collect-a-Can’s public relations and marketing manager, said the aim of Collect-a-Book was to put books in the hands of underprivileged pupils and “bring reading books to life, while making a lasting and memorable difference in schools”.Groups of volunteers and partners, along with a number of staff members from Collect-a-Can, made their first stop at Zitha Primary School in Vanderbijlpark, in Gauteng on Thursday. Visits to the four other schools were on Friday. They were: Chuma Primary School in Khayelitsha, Cape Town; Khalipha Primary School in Umlazi, Durban; Boepakitso Primary School in Diepkloof, Johannesburg; and Bokamoso Primary School in Soshanguve, Tshwane.Present to add a bit of colour and energy to the visits was the Collect-a-Can mascot, the CANman, who had boxes of reading books in tow for the schools to add to their libraries in exchange for the cans the pupils and school staff had collected for recycling.Selected classes at the schools were treated to what the facilitators of the initiative called “READalicious” activities. These involved teaching the children the many benefits of reading through interactive exercises and group reading sessions. They showed that reading could be fun, and could be considered more than just a part of the school curriculum.The activities were designed to prove to the children that reading could help to unlock the imagination and widen their scope of reference.Velaphi explained that the importance of reading for pleasure could not be underestimated. A study on children and reading “showed that reading for pleasure positively influences children’s learning abilities, especially with regards to developing their vocabulary, spelling abilities and mathematics skills”.It was important, she added, for Collect-a-Can to ensure this was not a once-off event. “Schools can look forward to a follow-up visit for International Literacy Day on Tuesday, 8 September 2015, when we hope to find that these learners have fallen in love with reading for pleasure.”The many partners who played a part in the success of the initiative included ReaderLympics, Biblionef, Molteno, Pan Macmillan, Dainfern Valley Estate and Tshikovha Environmental and Communication Consultancy.“Nothing encapsulates the spirit of Mandela Month more than working together to make a positive difference in our underprivileged communities,” Velaphi concluded.For more information about Collect-a-Can, visit its website or telephone on 011 466 2939.last_img read more

It was a response to a friend’s video where he suggested closing is not a skill, and that it is no longer important in sales. Both of these ideas as stated are inaccurate and will cause you to lose deals you might otherwise have won.Closing doesn’t require that you be smarmy, manipulative, self-oriented, or pushy. Now it means that you ask for the commitments your dream client needs to make to create change and produce a better result.This episode of the podcast is sponsored by and The Lost Art of Closing.last_img read more
