NAFCU to FCC: Clear up TCPA uncertainty for CUs

first_imgNAFCU asked the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to clear up confusion surrounding the definition of an automatic telephone dialing system (ATDS) in light of recent court decisions so credit unions can contact their members without fear of inadvertently breaking the law.The association’s call for action and rulemaking was sent Tuesday to FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, whom NAFCU President and CEO Dan Berger met with in May to discuss the commission’s approach to Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) rulemakings. The letter was also sent to Commissioners Michael O’Rielly, Brendan Carr, and Jessica Rosenworcel.NAFCU’s letter, sent by Executive Vice President of Government Affairs and General Counsel Carrie Hunt, explains that the FCC’s 2015 order “created an environment that produced absurd results and lined the pockets of plaintiffs’ attorneys seeking to take advantage of a vague statute and the Commission’s expansive interpretation.” continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Fury employs cut-man ‘Stitch’ Duran

first_imgRelatedPosts Tyson Fury to Anthony Joshua: Don’t risk fighting Usyk Anthony Joshua wants Tyson Fury, Wilder fight Joshua: Tyson Fury won’t distract me Tyson Fury will use the services of cut-man Jacob ‘Stitch’ Duran in his rematch against Deontay Wilder to prevent a repeat of the terrible slash that marred his last fight. Fury overcame a bad cut above his right eye to outpoint Otto Wallin in September, which initially looked like it could disrupt plans to fight Wilder again. But Fury has recovered and will challenge for Wilder’s WBC heavyweight championship on February 22 in Las Vegas, 14 months after they fought to a draw. Eddie Hearn, who promotes Anthony Joshua, reacted to Fury’s win over Wallin: “He’s very lucky not to lose the fight with that cut. I think any other country in the world, they would have stopped the fight.” Fury heads into the rematch with a new trainer, Sugarhill Steward, and will rely on renowned cut-man Duran to prevent another mid-fight crisis. Duran described their link-up as “an honour”. American veteran Duran has forged a career working with some of boxing’s biggest names, including Wladimir Klitschko who was rebuilt by Emanuel Steward, the Hall of Famer and uncle of Fury’s new trainer. Duran explained his unique job to Sky Sports two years ago: “A doctor stops a fight when a fighter is at a disadvantage. My job, first and foremost, is to eliminate any disadvantage. My job is to give them one more round. “I focus on the cut and look into a fighter’s eyes – if I notice he is not capable, then I make recommendations [to stop] to the coach. You have to make split-second decisions. “My job is not to give instructions but usually, when I say something, guys know there’s a lot of truth to it.”— Tags: Deontay WilderOtto WallinSugarhill StewardTyson Furylast_img read more
