Sloan will step down at the end of June.C. Allen Parker, Wells Fargo’s General Counsel, will serve as interim CEO and President while the bank searches for a long-term replacement.“In my time as CEO, I have focused on leading a process to address past issues and to rebuild trust for the future,” Sloan said in a statement. “We have made progress in many areas and, while there remains more work to be done, I am confident in our leadership team and optimistic about the future of Wells Fargo.” He added that his resignation came in part because “our ability to successfully move Wells Fargo forward from here will benefit from a new CEO and fresh perspectives. For this reason, I have decided it is best for the Company that I step aside and devote my efforts to supporting an effective transition.”“Tim Sloan has served this company with pride and dedication for more than 31 years, including in his role as CEO since October 2016,” said Wells Fargo Board Chair Betsy Duke in a statement. “He has worked tirelessly over this period for all of our stakeholders in the best long-term interest of Wells Fargo.”Sloan’s announcement comes only days after several senators, including Senators Elizabeth Warren, Ranking Member of the Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Subcommittee on Financial Institutions and Consumer Protection, and Sherrod Brown, Ranking Member of the Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee, called for limitations on Wells Fargo’s growth to remain in place until such time as Sloan was no longer the company’s President and CEO.Sloan had recently appeared before Congress himself, addressing the House Financial Services Committee to discuss the bank’s progress in providing reparations related to past scandals and how the bank is working to improve its culture and better serve its customers.The hearing stemmed back to 2016, when the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), and Los Angeles City Attorney fined Wells Fargo Bank collective penalties of $185 million for opening millions of deposit and credit-card accounts in customers’ names without their consent or knowledge. The CFPB and OCC imposed the bank with civil money penalties and demanded restitution to harmed customers.In this month’s hearing, Sloan claimed the bank has worked toward a change in leadership, culture, and practices. He pointed out that Wells Fargo has created the required ethics training for all team members titled “Change for the Better.” He also added that he “cannot promise perfection” but suggested that the changes implemented will act as a deterrent to further issues. “We’ve made fundamental changes,” Sloan said. “I can give personal assurance the bank will comply with consent decrees.” March 28, 2019 3,178 Views Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Wells Fargo, After Sloan Sign up for DS News Daily center_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, News David Wharton, Managing Editor at the Five Star Institute, is a graduate of the University of Texas at Arlington, where he received his B.A. in English and minored in Journalism.

Lambert cools Townsend ‘hype’

first_img Townsend has burst onto the international scene in the last week after he was thrown into England’s final two World Cup qualifiers by national team boss Roy Hodgson. The 22-year-old, who has been a perennial loanee and fringe player for four years, seized his chance in impressive fashion by producing two excellent performances in the crucial wins over Montenegro and Poland. Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert urged caution over the “hype” surrounding Andros Townsend and insisted his side have a lot more to worry about than just the England newcomer when they face Tottenham on Sunday. Townsend will inevitably be projected as England’s brightest light heading into the Finals in Brazil next summer yet, as Lambert knows himself, the winger may not even make Spurs’ starting line-up when they come to Villa Park in this weekend’s Barclays Premier League fixture. “This country has got a habit of giving great ‘hype’,” said the Scot. “Somebody plays one or two good games and they’re a world-beater. Tottenham have got an array of players, it’s not just him. “I don’t know the lad at all but in the last couple of games for England, he’s played well. But if you look at Spurs’ team, every one of their players is a top player. “He’s been playing well for Tottenham, even before the England games. But Spurs’ squad is huge, they’ve got a right good squad. The lad Erik Lamela can’t get a consistent run of games and he cost them a right few million pounds (reportedly £30million). “It’s up to the club managers who they pick and who they play.” Asked whether Townsend could prove to be as good as Gareth Bale, who departed Spurs for Real Madrid in a world-record deal this summer, Lambert was cautious. “People jump on that bandwagon after a handful of games,” he said. “Gareth Bale did it for a number of years and it’s too much pressure to put on Townsend.” Lambert, like his Premier League counterparts, is awaiting the arrival of his international contingent so he can assess the fitness of his squad. Of particular concern to him is striker Christian Benteke, who has been out since September with a hip problem. The Belgian was called up by his country for their recent double-header despite still being short of fitness but was not deployed by coach Marc Wilmots, to Lambert’s relief. “I don’t know how he is yet,” said the Villa boss. “He’ll come back and will know himself how he’s feeling. All I know is he was on the bench on Tuesday, trained for a couple of days and hadn’t had any reaction. That might change when he gets back – we’ll wait and see. “I trusted Christian to be honest, which he is. That’s all you can do – trust somebody to do the right thing. “Obviously he didn’t play against Croatia and he was on the bench against Wales. I trusted him.” Press Associationlast_img read more

Fantasy Waiver Wire Week 16: Kerryon Johnson’s return, O.J. Howard’s expanded role puts both among free agent adds

first_imgYou know it’s fantasy football championship week when fantasy owners are fretting over guys named Mike Boone and Chris Conley. Both will be among the top Week 16 fantasy waiver wire pickups and free agent adds, though it’s not just “no-names” who can go from the waiver wire to your starting lineup this year. Two guys who were relatively high fantasy draft picks back in August, Kerryon Johnson and O.J. Howard, are widely available and in interesting positions for Week 16, while former real-life first-round pick Breshad Perriman is suddenly the most coveted WR in all of fantasy. Those five players should all be claimed, but there are still plenty of other players who could be worth picking up after waivers clear around 4-5 a.m. ET on Wednesday morning in ESPN and Yahoo leagues.You can find a bunch of streaming recommendations in our full free agent list. The QBs and TEs aren’t exactly inspiring, but there are plenty of WR3s and D/STs who could give your team a boost. We also have Week 16 kicker rankings if you hate your life enough to look at fantasy kicker rankings. MORE WEEK 16: Waiver pickups | Snap counts | Fantasy playoff tipsBecause we don’t know whether Dalvin Cook will play this week, Boone has a case as the top waiver claim. Perriman is more of a “sure thing”, so if you need a WR3 or FLEX, he’s your guy, but Boone could work as an RB2 or FLEX if your other backs have tough matchups. Johnson fits that mold, too, and Howard could be that TE stream that helps you shore up your one weak spot. Either way, there’s a little something for everyone, so take advantage and don’t hold anything back. Good luck!WEEK 16 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerTop fantasy football waiver wire pickups and free agent adds for Week 16Unless otherwise noted, only players owned in fewer than 50 percent of Yahoo leagues considered.Kerryon Johnson, RB, Lions. Johnson hasn’t played since Week 7 because of a knee injury, but he’s been practicing the past two weeks and proclaimed himself “setback free.” It’s unclear just how many touches he’ll get, but it’s unlikely that the Lions would bring him back for seven or eight carries. He was averaging just 3.3 yards per carry this year, but with an average of 19.2 touches per game, the workload was there. The Broncos are solid against the run, but Johnson had over 10 standard league points in four of five full games, so he can work as a FLEX if he’s available. WEEK 16 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endAnthony Miller, WR, Bears. With 52 total targets (at least nine in four of five games), 431 yards, and two TDs in his past five games, Miller is finally making good on his preseason sleeper hype. This week’s matchup against Kansas City sounds good, but the Chiefs have actually allowed the fewest receptions to WRs this year. Miller is still the No. 2 on his team, so if you figure Allen Robinson is still going to get his, then there’s only so much left for Miller. He will still likely be a top pickup, but only grab him if you need a high-volume guy in your WR3 spot.  MORE WEEK 16: Waiver pickups | FAAB planning | Stock watch | Snap counts | Fantasy playoff tipsDiontae Johnson/James Washington, WRs, Steelers. Johnson (5-64, eight targets) and Washington (5-83, 11 targets) continued playing well despite a tough matchup in Week 15 against Buffalo. They get a much more favorable matchup in Week 16 against the Jets (ninth-most fantasy points allowed to WRs), making both potential WR3 streamers. Washington has a little more upside than Johnson, but both can work. O.J. Howard, TE, Buccaneers. There’s rightly a lot of hoopla about Breshad Perriman this week, but Howard actually led the Bucs with eight targets last week. He caught four for 46 yards, and he has a highly favorable matchup against the Texans in Week 16 (sixth-most fantasy points allowed to TEs). Howard is always a letdown waiting to happen, but he’s arguably Tampa’s best or second-best receiver at this point, so he should get his chances.WEEK 16 DFS LINEUPS:FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash | DK GPP | Y! Cash | Y! GPP Mike Boone, RB, Vikings. The latest on Dalvin Cook (shoulder) is that he felt good on Monday, according to Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer. Zimmer also said there “wasn’t any issue with [Cook]”, so who knows what to make of things. There has also been no updates on Alexander Mattison (ankle), so it seems as if Boone is the top handcuff option heading into Monday night’s game against Green Bay, who have allowed the seventh-most fantasy points to RBs. Unfortunately, we probably won’t know much until later in the week, so Boone will likely be the No. 1 or 2 waiver claim in most leagues and it might all be for naught…or it might win you your league. MORE WEEK 16 DFS: Stacks | Values | Lineup BuilderCheck out our full Week 16 waiver list for more waiver and free agent ideas, including Breshad Perriman, Chris Conley, Patrick Laird/Myles Gaskin, and more injury fill-ins and streamers for the fantasy championship round.last_img read more

New device to get West Palm Beach drivers to pay up

first_imgA big heads up, because there is a new device coming to West Palm Beach that is expected to hold drivers accountable and reduce violations.It’s called the Barnacle, an immobilization device to expedite revenue collection.Rojay Morrison, who is a local parking enforcement representative, says they are specifically looking into expired meters, registrations, and handicap parking violations.He also said officials would begin driving into parking garages for a list of other non-moving violations including, expired tags, protruding vehicles, people taking up two spaces.The move comes as parking spaces have become limited in recent months due to the areas in the city that remain under construction, according to West Palm Beach Parking System Administrator Edward Davis.“We had to have an effective enforcement program to ensure that those who pay for their time on the meter adhere to that time and once that time is over with they need to go ahead and depart or either move to the garages, so we have spaces available on the street,” said Davis. “I think we had cases where there has been up to $600 to $700 worth of unpaid tickets by the time the boot had been applied.”Effective Nov. 6, the Barnacle will now be placed on vehicles within city limits that have three overdue violations.Parking enforcement says it’s faster and easier for them to apply and remove than a boot.There will also be a GPS tracker inside and an alarm that sounds if motorists try to tam with it or attempt to move the vehicle.The new system is expected to “help drivers adhere to the posted parking restrictions,” Davis added.last_img read more

Florida man arrested for customizing car to impersonate an officer

first_imgPolice in Fort Myers have arrested a 30-year-old man who reportedly customized his 2009 Bentley to resemble a police vehicle and then began impersonating a cop.Christopher Ted Duluk was arrested Tuesday following an investigation into allegations and complaints that Duluk was using his vehicle in a “reckless manner.”The Lee County Sheriff’s Office says witnesses came forward to say that Duluk used a police siren and lights to maneuver around traffic and to intimidate others in the community. He was also said to have pulled over another driver using the lights and siren but sped away from the scene as the driver began to pull over.During their investigation into Duluk, authorities found that Duluk’s vehicle was equipped with police-style antennas, a speed measurement device similar to the ones used by law enforcement and a yellow State of Florida license plate with several LED police-style lights, despite not being a state employee.Authorities were granted a warrant and arrested Duluk at his residence on Little Gem Circle in Fort Myers. He has since been charged with Falsely Impersonating a Law Enforcement Officer. Deputies also seized the vehicle for forfeiture.last_img read more
