Gerald Lesser, Charles Bigelow Professor of Education and Developmental Psychology Emeritus at the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE), died on Sept. 23 at the age of 84.Lesser is perhaps most well-known as one of the scholars who, during his time at HGSE, developed the curriculum for the acclaimed PBS series “Sesame Street,” a show unparalleled in the history of television. Throughout his 30 years at HGSE, he continued to work on “Sesame Street” where he served as chairman of the Children’s Television Workshop’s board of advisers from 1969 through 1996. Lesser was determined to ensure the show’s value as a learning experience, establishing a strong culture of assessment and writing the 1974 book, “Children and Television: Lessons from Sesame Street.”“As a young assistant professor, I assigned Gerry Lesser’s work to my students because it illustrated the power of applied developmental science,” said Dean Kathleen McCartney, the Gerald S. Lesser Professor in Early Childhood Development. “The first time I met Gerry Lesser, he joked that he was sorry to have saddled me with the name ‘Lesser Professor’; he also told me how proud he was that the dean of the School was serving in a chair that honored him. But I am the one who is proud to carry his name along with mine.”To read the full obituary, visit HGSE’s website.
Your daily outdoor news bulletin for October 3, the day O.J. Simpson was acquitted in 1995:Leaf Peeping Party PooperOf all the things that don’t work during the current government shutdown, our National Parks are getting a lot of press for being closed. There is the political grandstanding and posturing at the World War II Memorial in D.C., the lost hikers in Crater of the Moon park in Idaho that may or may not be rescued by federal employees, there is the angry rafters at Grand Canyon National Park who have waited years – decades even – for their permits only to be stymied a the put-in, there’s the Panda Cam. It’s a mess for sure, and the economic impact is huge: estimates peg the total daily economic loss at $76 million with D.C. ($5.8 million), North Carolina ($4.4 million), Tennessee ($3.4 million), and Virginia ($3.3 million) all coming in the top 10 states with the biggest loses. Even for people in the government, that’s a lot of money. Although the Blue Ridge Parkway will remain open – the actual road, not the amenities – Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Shenandoah National Park remain closed. This includes all trails, visitors centers, etc. The month of October is one of the busiest months for both these parks, with GSMNP drawing upwards of a million visitors, all of whom have one thing in mind: leaves. The changing colors of the epic expanses of forests is one of the main reasons these two parks are so popular during the fall season. Most national forest trails remain open, even if the facilities are closed. There are some people who will still be able to enjoy our national parks however, those with leases to drill and those that want to log the forests. And then there are the small acts of civil disobedience like the situation at the Pisgah Inn.BEARS! THEY’RE EVERYWHERE!Over the past couple of weeks, a spike in bear activity has North Carolinians on edge. They only have one party to blame, and no it’s not the government shutdown – although I’m sure it hasn’t helped authorities deal with the bears. No, they can blame that smallest of nuggets that always tend to stab you in the sweet meat on the bottom of your arch when you walk barefoot to the mailbox: the acorn. A poor acorn crop in the high country has resulted in more bear activity in valley communities like Asheville as the winter hibernation season comes on. Bears are looking for food, and when there is a shortage, the easiest place to find it is in the trashcans of their neighbors, the hungry humans. Although they are mainly on the hunt for acorns at lower elevations, which are plentiful, a bear sighting at Asheville High School put that school on lock down yesterday, and a bear cub was hit by a car on I-26. Experts say to expect the increase in bear activity at lower elevations to continue through the fall and into the winter.Fracking Tearing Up Pennsylvania ForestsThe process of extracting natural gas from the ground via hydraulic fracturing is a relatively new process, and remains unregulated by the EPA, and as such has unknown impacts on the environment and communities. Some of those impacts are known – West Virginians lighting their tap water on fire is the example that immediately comes to mind – but now some more in-depth, more insidious, impacts of fracking are coming to light. A survey has revealed sweeping damage at fracking sites in Pennsylvania, one of the most controversial states when it comes to fracking because there is much public outcry but the states sits on the Marcellus Shale, which many consider the motherlode of deposits. Aerial photos and analysis reveal that fracking is causing sweeping damage and forests fragmented by new well pads, roads, and pipelines. Even a small amount of well sites have a major impact on the surrounding forests, and a deeper look at how ecosystems work reveals why. The theory of island biogeography says that an area’s diversity plummets when habitat is broken up into smaller pieces, as is happening where these drilling sites are, because some animals can only survive in the depths of the forest, not around it’s edges.Read the full story at grist.org.
Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York KTUphoria helped launch the 2015 Nikon at Jones Beach Theater summer concert series this weekend with a stage full of stars including Kelly Clarkson, Ricky Martin, Shaggy and many more hit singers.Despite the threat of rain, fans packed the seaside amphitheater for the annual pop fest thrown by 103.5 WKTU—but sadly one of the headliners, Pitbull, could not make it due to flight delays in Florida–and that disappointing news wasn’t revealed until almost the end of the concert.But his absence did not detract from the evening’s excitement.“New York energy is addictive,” Ricky Martin, flanked by black-clad backup dancers, told the crowd—making all the fangirls go wild—between singing his hit songs “La Copa de la Vida,” “Shake Your Bon-Bon,” “Livin’ La Vida Loca” and “She Bangs.”The lineup also included DJ ProStyle, whose hit “Danza Kuduro” got the crowd on their feet; Prince Royce, who played his danceable singles “Stand by Me” and “Carazón Sin Cara,” as well as Adam Lambert, to name just a few.Lady Antebellum got the party officially started with her concert at the beach on Friday.Many of the artists at KTUphoria stopped to pose for pictures and talk to reporters as well as fans on the red carpet as they made their way into the concert. Among them was up-and-coming singer Laura Marano of Disney Channel series “Austin & Ally” fame.“I’ve never been here, it’s like the coolest venue, I’m so excited!” Marano exclaimed. Later, upon taking the stage, she decided to capture that enthusiasm with a crowd selfie, urging the audience to “make the stupidest face you can.”Opening the show was American Idol season one winner Kelly Clarkson singing her hits “My Life Would Suck Without You” and “Miss Independent” before her microphone suddenly flew off the stand and landed in the audience.“I’m sorry I threw my mic at ya’ll,” Clarkson jokingly sang.Adam Lambert, a fellow American Idol star and season eight runner up, showed the crowd he can hit the high notes with his new song, “Ghost Town,” off his latest album, The Original High, which is slated to be released June 16.When Shaggy got to the stage, it seemed as though the whole concert came just to see him. Everyone was on their feet, dancing, waving their hands and screaming. Fifteen years after reaching stardom with his hit, “It Wasn’t Me,” the Jamaican-American proved he’s still got it with his latest single, “I Need Your Love.”Closing the show was Jason DeRulo, who started his set with his hit “Wiggle” and “Want To Want Me” off of his new album Everything Is 4, slated to be released Tuesday. He went a little old school with “Whatcha Say,” “Riding Solo” and the hit of the night, “Marry Me.” He also brought out special guest singer Alyxx Dione to perform her new song that just hit the radio, “Chingalinga,” which also features DeRulo.That’s when DeRulo dropped the news that Pitbull was unable to make it, which visibly and audibly upset many fans in the crowd. On the bright side, at least the rain held out until the very end when the audience started heading home. ‘Til next year!

Consummation is the moment the borrower becomes contractually obligated on the loan, after signing the loan documents.Regulation Z provides that if any required disclosures are not provided to the consumer in-person, then the consumer is considered to have received the disclosures 3 business days after they are delivered or placed in the mail (the “mailbox rule”).
4SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Jordan van Rijn Jordan is Senior Economist for the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) and has nearly 10 years of experience in economic development, microfinance and economic research in Latin America, Africa, Southeast … Web: www.cuna.org Details CUNA economists often report on the wide-ranging financial and social benefits of credit unions’ not for-profit, cooperative structure for both members and nonmembers, including financial education and better interest rates. However, there’s another important benefit of the unique credit union structure: economic and financial stability. During the 2007-2009 financial crisis, credit unions significantly outperformed banks by almost every possible measure. In fact, evidence suggests that if credit unions ruled the market, it’s quite likely we never would have had a financial crisis. What’s the evidence to support such a claim? First, numerous complex and interrelated factors caused the financial crisis, and blame has been assigned to various actors, including regulators, credit agencies, government housing policies, consumers, and financial institutions. But almost everyone agrees the main proximate causes of the crisis were the rise in subprime mortgage lending and the increase in housing speculation, which led to a housing bubble that eventually burst. As home values plummeted and the stock market crashed, the U.S. entered a deep recession, with nearly nine million jobs lost during 2008 and 2009. Who engaged in this subprime lending that fueled the crisis? While “subprime” isn’t easily defined, it’s generally understood as characterizing particularly risky loans with interest rates that are well above market rates. These might include loans to borrowers who have a previous record of delinquency, low credit scores, and/or a particularly high debt-to-income ratio. To be clear: Not all subprime lending is bad. Many credit unions take pride in offering subprime loans to disadvantaged communities. However, the particularly large rise in subprime lending that led to the financial crisis was certainly not this type of mission-driven subprime lending.Run-up to the crisis Using Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) data to identify subprime mortgages—those with interest rates more than three percentage points above the Treasury yield for a comparable maturity at the time of origination—we find that in 2006, immediately before the financial crisis:Nearly 30% of all originated mortgages were “subprime,” up from just 15.1% in 2004.At nondepository financial institutions, such as mortgage origination companies, an incredible 41.5% of all originated mortgages were subprime, up from 26.5% in 2004.At banks, 23.6% of originated mortgages were subprime in 2006, up from just 9.7% in 2004.At credit unions, only 3.6% of originated mortgages could be classified as subprime in 2006—the same figure as in 2004. This is an incredible statistic because it indicates that while banks and mortgage companies significantly increased their sub-prime lending in the run-up to the financial crisis—likely in search of short-term profits and bonuses—credit unions didn’t increase their subprime lending at all.What were some of the consequences of these disparate actions? Because many of these mortgages were sold to the secondary market, it’s difficult to know the exact performance of these mortgages originated at banks and mortgage companies versus credit unions. But if we look at the performance of depository institutions during the peak of the financial crisis, we see that delinquency and charge-off ratios spiked at banks to 5.6% and 2.6%, respectively, in 2009 versus only 1.82% and 1.21% at credit unions. The difference in mortgage performance is even more stark. Among mortgages that remained on the books, 7.25% of mortgages originated at banks were delinquent in 2009 (versus only 1.97% at credit unions), and 3.95% of all bank mortgages were charged off (versus only 0.55% of credit union mortgages). That’s despite the fact that in 2007, 58.4% of bank mortgages were sold to the secondary market versus only 20.6% of credit union mortgages.Bank failures Risky lending at commercial banks helped precipitate the failure of 331 banks between 2009 and 2011, while only 64 credit unions failed during that same period despite there being roughly the same number of banks and credit unions in 2008. In fact, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.’s (FDIC) Bank Insurance Fund became insolvent in both 2009 and 2010, while the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF) was remarkably stable during that time, declining only 6% between 2006 and 2009. NCUSIF retained a strong balance of $1.23 per $100 in insured deposits versus a negative $0.39 per $100 in insured deposits at the FDIC. Thus, via the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), the government provided emergency loans totaling $236 billion to 710 banks—or 1.93% of all bank assets.On the other hand, only 48 credit unions received TARP funding for a total of $70 million, or just 0.008% of credit union assets. While there are many reasons credit unions didn’t engage in the same kind of subprime lending as mortgage companies and banks, credit unions’ unique structure is the main reason. As not-for-profit, member-owned entities, credit unions have significantly fewer incentives to seek short-term profits and bonuses that clearly aren’t in their members’ best interests. This creates greater financial stability—benefiting both members and the overall economy.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard said on Monday he would reassess his goalkeeping options at the end of the season after dropping the world’s most expensive goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga, in recent weeks. Chelsea’s Kepa Arrizabalaga has been dropped in recent weeks despite a world record price tag for a goalkeeper The Spanish international has fallen behind 38-year-old Willy Caballero after a series of poor performances in his second season after a £72 million ($92 million) move from Athletic Bilbao. “Of course in the summer then we look at the group as a whole and think how can we improve but there are no decisions or thoughts beyond the game tomorrow night as far as I’m concerned,” Lampard said ahead of Tuesday’s FA Cup tie against Liverpool. Kepa could return to face the runaway Premier League leaders at Stamford Bridge and Lampard praised his response to being dropped for the past five games. “He’s been professional as expected and has trained well, kept his head down, supported the team, and the group,” added Lampard. “Every player is in control of their destiny in terms of how they train and how they play.Advertisement Loading… “This is Chelsea and we’re trying to close the gap to the top, so there can be no one that can be relaxed or loose, we have to push every day.” Promoted Content5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme ParksPretty Awesome Shows That Just Got CanceledThe Funniest Prankster Grandma And Her GrandsonCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable WayThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.
