first_img As an example, Al-Zwahri mentioned the attack in Boston, saying, “it reminds Americans that they are not being confronted by individuals, organizations or groups, but by a Ummah (Muslim community) that is revealed in Jihad or the holy war against U.S. interests.” By Dialogo September 16, 2013 Al-Qaeda leader Ayman Al-Zwahri, has called on his followers to perpetrate “an economic disruption to the United States” and conduct small-scale attacks on U.S. soil. He added that Muslims should take advantage of every opportunity to execute “a bigger blow” to the United States, even if it takes years to prepare. In addition, he said that Muslims should leave the U.S. dollar as a currency and adopt the currency of countries that have not attacked Muslims. Declarations coincided with a Taliban attack on September 13, against the U.S. consulate in Herat city, Afghanistan, leaving at least two Afghans dead. No victims were found among U.S. personnel at the consulate. Attacks performed “here and there” by “one or several brothers” will help to undermine “the weak side of the United States,” the economy, which has started a phase of stagnation “due to military and security spending,” Zwahri said in an audio statement. last_img read more

Learning the ins-and-outs of this new job from the confines of my home – while also dealing with two children under the age of 4 – has been, well… interesting. I look forward to working on the NAFCU Compliance Blog in the years to come, hopefully one day from an actual office with other grownups.I’ve decided to focus my first blog post on some questions that credit unions may have regarding various exceptions to the periodic statement requirements in Regulation Z. Enjoy!What is a Periodic Statement?As I’m sure you all know, Regulation Z requires credit unions to provide periodic statements for certain credit accounts. These are the account statements for a member’s credit card, HELOC, mortgage, or other credit accounts, except for non-home secured closed-end loans, such as car loans, since Regulation Z does not require statements for these accounts. Regulation Z lays out specific requirements for periodic statements, including what information must be contained within them and timing requirements for when they must be provided to the member. For an in-depth discussion of the various periodic statement requirements for different types of credit, see this previous post in the Compliance Blogand check out this post for more information on the timing requirements.last_img read more

first_imgJenny Novak, a second-year graduate student studying geography, was elected president of the Graduate and Professional Student Senate at Monday night’s GPSS meeting.Ready to serve · Jenny Novak, a second-year graduate student studying geography and the current campus affairs chair for GPSS, was elected president of GPSS on Monday. – James Watson | Daily Trojan Novak, GPSS’ current campus affairs chair, won a large enough majority of the senators’ votes to avoid a run-off. She beat out Edward Ng, a first-year graduate student studying public policy and urban planning, and Juanita Price, a first-year graduate student studying education.Novak said one of her main goals is spreading awareness of GPSS.“The most important thing for us is to focus on in the beginning is publicity … so the entire university community knows about GPSS and so the graduate students know what a resource we can be for them,” Novak said.Her long-term goals include establishing a subsidized transit system, continuing her work on improving sustainability and ensuring a first-year housing guarantee for graduate students, she said.“We want to make sure that our graduate students are getting the adequate space so that we can have students living closer to the community, at least in their first year here,” she said.Novak also hopes to ensure that the graduate student lounge in the new Ronald Tutor Campus Center promotes interdepartmental relationships and helps accomplish other GPSS goals.Aliya Yousufi, a second-year graduate student studying law and the current GPSS vice president, was elected for a second term as vice president.Yousufi, who ran unopposed, told the senators at the meeting Monday, “This year, I want to do a lot more.”Yousufi said she has a number of plans to use surplus funding currently unused by graduate students. She hopes to give all students access to the conference fund, which provides funding for students to attend conferences but is currently limited to certain departments, and to re-establish the professional development fund.“I’m going to be working with the finance chair to create a professional development fund for graduate student to help with networking and job hunting,” she said.Irfan Elahi , a current member of the GPSS Finance Committee and a graduate student studying business, was elected to serve as the finance chair.Elahi proposed increased efficiency, complete transparency and the expansion of the endowment fund. Like Yousufi, he said he would like to revamp the conference fund and add a senator development fund to take advantage of the extra funding GPSS has available.Rosezetta Upshaw, a second-year law student, ran unopposed for Community Service Chair and was elected to serve her second year on the GPSS executive board. She began her involvement as a senator two years ago and currently serves as the elections and recruitment chair.“I don’t want to reinvent the wheel; I want to use GPSS resources to put extra air in those tires that are already rolling,” Upshaw said. “I want to collaborate across disciplines more because my vision is really to bring the campus together.”She plans to offer visits to more schools and detention centers to take on a more visible role in the community.“We’re known for the social programming, the grad bar; we’re known as a bank to come get funding, but I also want us to be known as being active in the community,” Upshaw said. “If we’re all doing service together, if we’re all in the community making a difference, that’s the perfect way to build ourselves as an organization, to make connections across disciplines.”last_img read more
