Proper Set Etiquette Will Get You Hired Again and Again

first_imgBe PunctualI would advise that you show up earlier than your scheduled call time when working on a set because there’s always a need for an extra set of hands and you’ll be remembered for being one of the first ones on set. It’s also typical for a shoot to go much longer than expected, so do yourself a favor and prepare to stay as long as you need to until the job gets done. This may be the easiest and simplest tip on the list, but it’s also the one that is most overlooked. It’s a primary reason that crew members lose their jobs or don’t get called again – so be on time.Know Your Role & Respect the Chain of CommandQuite often, film sets can seem as if there is a lot of “down time” or standing around, but once the ball gets rolling, things become very hectic, very quickly. This is especially true for micro budget indie films, where money can’t be thrown at problems in order to solve them quickly, but can also occur on much larger scale projects. Make sure that you know your role inside and out so that when you are called to actually do your task, you are making the most out of the little time that you have to get the job done. If you’re working with new equipment, spend time with it in the days and week before the shoot so you’re comfortable and familiar with it when it’s ‘go time’. One of the most important things you can do when starting out in the film industry, is learn to abide by the unwritten rules of the set.Many less experienced crew members are often coming right of school where they have been taught to ‘stand out’ from the crowd and show off how much they know or how great they are at a particular task. However, on a film set proper etiquette is often times just the opposite, and these behaviors can actually do you more harm than good. It’s crucial that newcomers understand that a set has a ton of moving parts and a good film set operates like a well-oiled machine. In order for this to happen, all of these moving parts must work together, coherently. Whether you’re looking for a refresher or are new to set life, here is a list of tips for set etiquette. These tips are not only for making sure you work well (and appropriately) with others but also pointers for getting hired again! One important role to follow when working on set is to respect the chain of command, in all circumstances. It is your department head’s duty to delegate and oversee your work. If you have any questions or concerns, approach your department head or the individual directly responsible for you on set.Stick to Your TasksYour title on set clearly defines your tasks, creating boundaries for you and those you work with. It’s very important that you stick to your defined role and let others stick to theirs, leaving little room for error or confusion.Sometimes there will be crew members who have experience in different areas on past sets, and as a result, they tend to overstep their boundaries and try to look like the ‘hero’. For example, if you worked as a DP on a previous set but you’ve been hired for this production in an entirely different department, it’s not your job interject and insert your opinion on matters of lighting or shot setups. Scenarios such as this do you more harm than good. Specific titles for crew members assume that individuals on set have an intimate knowledge of their roles, which is why they are hired to perform them. Stick to yours.Avoid Too Much Small TalkWhile it’s nice to meet new people and forge relationships, you’ve been hired to assist in making a film (and you are hopefully being paid to do so!) In this way, film sets are vastly different than many work environments where chatter occurs all day long and, in some cases, team building and communication is encouraged by superiors. It may seem as if you have time on your hands to chat with fellow crew members, but in those ‘down’ moments you’ve got to be watching and listening to those around you to so that you can anticipate what is required from you next. Simply put, socializing on set should be kept to a minimum. It is distracting, annoying and could cause you to drop the ball, not to mention that it just looks bad when your department head catches you chatting it up when you should be working.Stay PositiveOne of the simplest and most effective things you can do on set is to simply be positive. Department heads love hiring crew members that work hard without complaining and that are natural problem solvers. Put yourself in the shoes of your department head on set and imagine what it would be like for them to be juggling so many different things all at once. When things don’t go as planned, when the shoot runs later than expected, and when everyone is exhausted, use this time as an opportunity to set yourself part by tackling it with a positive attitude. It won’t go unnoticed.Final ThoughtsThese are just a few tips that will help you have a better experience on set and increase your chances of being called back by the producers or department heads. A lot of what it takes to be a successful member of a crew just comes down to common sense, but you might be surprised at how often newcomers to set simply don’t follow these sort of guidelines. If you just remember to always show up early, work extremely diligently in the role you have been assigned, and remain positive and focused on set, you will be many steps ahead.last_img read more


‘Teachers, students tried to kill us’

first_imgA group of teachers and students had made an attempt on their lives, two Manipur University officials said in a police complaint that led to the detention of 89 students and six faculty members this past Thursday midnight.Remanded to custodyA court in the State capital Imphal on Friday remanded six teachers and seven students to 15 days’ judicial custody and two other students to five days’ police custody.In his complaint, the university’s Pro-Vice-Chancellor K. Yugindro said some members of the university community had kidnapped him and Registrar in-charge M. Shyamkesho when they visited the campus on Thursday.Suspended Vice-Chancellor Adya Prasad Pandey had appointed the duo when the Ministry of Human Resource Development had sent him on leave after a committee was constituted to probe various allegations against him.“We were harassed and grilled for three hours inside a room. They let us go after forcing us to sign on a piece of paper saying we will never try to enter the university office again,” Mr. Yugindro’s said in the complaint.Some students and faculty members of the university attacked them using sticks and stones with the apparent attempt to kill them but they somehow managed to escape, it added.Later, Mr. Yugindro issued a statement saying the six arrested teachers have been placed under suspension for being in police custody.Trouble in varsity Trouble in Manipur University began in the first week of July with the students’ union demanding Mr. Pandey’s ouster for alleged misappropriation of funds. The teachers and employees unions joined the agitation a few days later. Tribal students’ organisations, however, have distanced themselves from the agitation.last_img read more


Jose Mourinho Rules Out Zlatan Ibrahimovic Signing for Tottenham Hotspur

first_imgLondon: Jose Mourinho says there is “no chance” of Tottenham signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic after the veteran forward was linked with a move to the club following his exit from LA Galaxy.Mourinho worked with Ibrahimovic at Inter Milan and Manchester United but said signing the 38-year-old would not make sense with Harry Kane at his disposal. “You are right about the connection, we have more than a connection,” Mourinho said when asked on Monday whether he would be trying to sign the Swede.”I would say also passion and understanding, an amazing player and an amazing guy, but I would say ‘no’. No chance.”We have the best striker in England, we have one of the top two or three strikers in the world, it doesn’t make any sense for a striker of Zlatan’s dimension, obviously in his late 30s, but still a striker that can play in any club in the world.”It has been a hectic first week for Mourinho at the Spurs helm following his appointment last week.After his unveiling to the media on Thursday, he had his first game 48 hours later at West Ham, which Spurs won 3-2, and is now preparing for a Champions League clash with Olympiakos on Tuesday.Tottenham, who reached the Champions League final last season, would qualify for the knockout stages with a win or if they drew and Red Star failed to beat Bayern.Mourinho said he had not yet contacted his friend Mauricio Pochettino, who was sacked by Spurs last week.”I needed that little bit of space to process things when I left previous clubs,” said the former Chelsea and Manchester United boss. “It does not take just five or six days to be open again.”You take a little bit of time to process things and understand and to think and rethink. You speak with people and in a couple of weeks he will be fine and I will call him.”Part of Mourinho’s remit at Spurs is to do one thing that Pochettino could not do — win silverware.”I love the competition (Champions League) as much as everyone in football,” said Mourinho, who won the trophy with Porto and Inter Milan.”It’s something that everybody dreams about, to win it. Not everyone has the privilege to be a Champions League winner, which I was happy enough to do twice.”Do I want to win it a third time? Of course, I would love it but I know the difficulties of it.”But with these boys, I will never be afraid of any Champions League match that comes into our faces. I repeat, we need to qualify, that is the focus. I always say that.” Get the best of News18 delivered to your inbox – subscribe to News18 Daybreak.

Freak Injury Leaves Liverpool Facing Goalkeeper Crisis

first_imgLIVERPOOL, England — Liverpool might need to play a 35-year-old free agent in goal against Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday after backup goalkeeper Adrian hurt his ankle in a freak incident during the team’s post-match celebrations after the UEFA Super Cup.Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp said a supporter ran onto the field, headed toward the celebrating players, slipped and ended up sliding into the ankle of Adrian — the Spanish goalkeeper who saved what proved to be the deciding penalty in the shootout against Chelsea.Klopp said Adrian’s ankle is swollen, making him a doubt for the trip to St. Mary’s Stadium on the second weekend of the league season.With first-choice goalkeeper Alisson Becker out because of a calf injury sustained in Liverpool’s 4-1 win over Norwich on the opening day of the Premier League season, Klopp is facing something of a crisis.Andy Lonergan, who was recently released by second-tier Middlesbrough and was on emergency loan at third-tier Rochdale last season, was part of the Liverpool squad during preseason — he played one half of a game — and is still training with the club.If Adrian doesn’t recover, Lonergan will be start.“There is no doubt how much we love our fans but if they could all stop doing that,” Klopp said of the fan who ran onto the field.“That’s the worst example I have so far heard about … It’s not funny, what can I say? I like the fact we don’t have fences in the stadium but it means the supporters have a lot of responsibility. It’s crazy. You think, ‘Wow, how can this thing happen?’”Irish youngster Caoimhin Kelleher is next in line for Liverpool in the goalkeeping ranks but Klopp said he is “not 100%” either.Adrian was brought in late in the offseason following Simon Mignolet’s departure for Club Brugge in Belgium.“I feel mentally ready and I also hope today with the treatment of the ankle it’s going to be much better,” Adrian said of his injury. “But I’m very optimistic to start playing tomorrow (Saturday) again.”TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

India vs New Zealand: Dinesh Karthik is an ODI wicketkeeper after nearly 5 years

first_img Rohan Sen Mount MaunganuiJanuary 28, 2019UPDATED: January 28, 2019 09:39 IST Dinesh Karthik replaced MS Dhoni in the Indian playing XI for the third ODI (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSDhoni is nursing a sore back and missed the 3rd ODI vs New Zealand as a resultDinesh Karthik has donned the gloves for the first time since the Asia Cup in Bangladesh in 2014India also brought back all-rounder Hardik Pandya in the playing XI in place of Vijay ShankarBrief scores – New Zealand 75/3 (21 overs) vs India. Ross Taylor (15*), Tom Latham (10*); Chahal (1/27), Bhuvneshwar (1/23), Shami (1/13). ScorecardAn injury to Mahendra Singh Dhoni has given Dinesh Karthik the opportunity to shine as the wicketkeeper after almost 6 years in the ongoing third ODI against New Zealand on Monday.Dhoni has a sore hamstring which is why he was not included in the playing XI for the crucial game, one that could decide the fate of the series with India already leading 2-0. This is only the third occasion when the veteran stumper was forced out of the playing XI.India vs New Zealand 3rd ODI: Live Cricket ScoreThe last time he was out of the playing XI was way back in 2013 when he missed three ODIs due to a hamstring injury in a tri-series in the West Indies.While the first time, he missed out was 12 years ago when he was out of two ODIs against Ireland and South Africa in Belfast in 2007 due to viral fever.Dinesh Karthik, who did not feature in the first two ODIs, has donned the gloves for the first time since the Asia Cup in Bangladesh in 2014, the tournament which Dhoni had missed.He remained out of the team for three years before making a comeback in 2017 in the ODI series against West Indies. Since then Karthik has been in splendid form with the bat having scored 183 runs in 2017 at an average of 61, 167 runs last year at 41.75. He has played four matches this year and scored 37 runs till now.advertisementAlready 2-0 up in the five-match ODI rubber, India made two forced changes by leaving out an injured Dhoni and all-rounder Vijay Shankar with Hardik Pandya coming back into the side.This is Pandya’s first match after his ban was lifted by the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) for his alleged “sexist comments” on Karan Johar’s TV show Koffee with Karan.Pandya returns to the playing XI for the first time since an injury he picked up in the Asia Cup in September last year. After gaining full fitness, Pandya joined the team during the Test series in Australia and was expected to play in the ODIs before the Koffee with Karan controversy erupted.Pandya’s presence lends solidity and balance to the side and skipper Virat Kohli has time and again admitted it. The Baroda all-rounder’s replacement Vijay Shankar is a decent cricketer but is yet to possess the X factor that Pandya has. That Shankar was given only two overs in the second ODI is an example that he is still not ready to shoulder extra responsibility.On the other hand, the hosts made a single change by including the left-arm spinner Mitchell Santner in place of Colin de Grandhomme.For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Zimmer and Kent speak on political affairs at Chamber of Commerce Luncheon

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Chamber of Commerce held a special Speaker Series Luncheon on Friday, May 3 at the Northern Grand Hotel.Guest Speakers included local M.P. Bob Zimmer and the Honourable Peter Kent, M.P. for Thornhill, Ontario.With the Federal Election coming up in the fall, Zimmer and Kent discussed current Canadian political affairs and what it could mean for the future of Canadians. Kent is concerned for Canada’s future as the current Liberal Government has not had a balanced budget since being in power and that it will not be balanced until 2040 if they do not apply responsible fiscal management.“We haven’t had a balanced budget since 2015 and we’ve had three successive huge deficits of $20 billion a year, without as much to show for it, and I worry about my kids and grandkids and the fact that we’re told by the Parliamentary Budget Officer the budget won’t be balanced until, at least, 2040 if things keep going as they are.”Zimmer touched on the SNC-Lavilan affair and shared his thoughts on the future of Jody Wilson-Raybould and Jane Philpot.“We don’t know where they’re really going to go and I don’t think they’re sure either because even Jody’s seat when they got in, they just got in even in the perfect circumstance of having a red surge coming up. So now they’re in a different situation because she’s said she is a dedicated Liberal, she was kicked out of caucus, so she would now have to run as an independent, and the chances of winning as an independent in that riding would be tough. Now it is possible, with her high profile, that it could happen but it’s going to be tough for her.”Along with the SNC-Lavilan affair, Zimmer also talked about protecting the resource sector and the importance of protecting citizens in this digital age.The next Chamber Speaker Series Luncheon will be on May 22, at the Northern Grand Hotel, with guest speakers Andrew Wilkinson and MLA Dan Davies.

US manufacturing grew at healthy pace in November though slightly slower than

U.S. factories were slightly less busy in November, as production and hiring slowed, though the level of activity remained strong. (AP Photo/Paul Sancya, File) by Christopher S. Rugaber, The Associated Press Posted Dec 1, 2014 8:18 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email US manufacturing grew at healthy pace in November, though slightly slower than previous month WASHINGTON – U.S. factories were slightly less busy in November, as production and hiring slowed, though the level of activity remained strong.The Institute for Supply Management, a trade group of purchasing managers, said Monday that its manufacturing index slipped to 58.7 last month from 59 in October. Any reading above 50 signals expansion. October’s figure matched a three-year high reached in August.Manufacturing has been a key driver of growth this year in the U.S., even as it has fallen off overseas. Factories in China, the world’s second-largest economy, are barely growing, according to a survey released Sunday by the bank HSBC Corp. And a European manufacturing index fell to 50.1 in November, the lowest in 17 months and just barely in expansion territory. Brazil’s manufacturing sector has contracted for the seventh time in eight months.That has raised concerns among some economists that faltering overseas economies could soon drag on the U.S.“While the U.S. economy is domestically-oriented, a rising dollar in combination with struggling global activity will weigh on economic growth over the next year,” Ksenia Bushmeneva, an economist at TD Economics, wrote in a note to clients. A stronger dollar makes U.S. goods more expensive overseas.In the U.S., other manufacturing data has pointed to a recent slowdown in output, and many economists said Monday that factories are probably not growing as fast as the ISM’s survey suggests. The index has topped 56 since June, up from an average of just 53.9 last year.“Although we remain optimistic about the outlook….we’re not convinced that conditions are quite as good as the ISM implies,” Paul Dales, senior economist at Capital Economics, said in a note to clients.A measure of new U.S. orders rose and order backlogs jumped, both signs that output will likely remain solid in the coming months. A gauge of hiring dipped, but still pointed to steady job gains among manufacturing firms.Lower oil prices are providing a big boost, the ISM found. Its measure of prices paid for raw materials plummeted to 44.5, the lowest in two years. Cheaper oil benefits plastic manufacturers, who use oil as an ingredient, and steelmakers and other manufacturers who use it for heating and shipping.Other recent manufacturing reports have been mixed. Businesses ordered fewer big-ticket manufactured goods in October, excluding the volatile aircraft category, the government said last week. Orders in a key category reflecting business investment plans fell for the second straight month.That’s raised concerns that economic growth could slow in the final three months of this year. The economy expanded at a 4.25 per cent annual rate in the April-June and July-September quarters. That was the best six months of growth for the U.S. economy since 2003.But there have been recent signs that growth is slowing. Consumer spending rose only modestly in October. Many economists now forecast growth will slide to a 2.5 per cent rate in the current October-December quarter.Hiring has been healthy this year, helping propel the economy. Employers had added an average of 229,000 jobs a month this year, up from 194,000 in 2013. That has helped lower the unemployment rate to 5.8 per cent, a six-year low, down from 7.2 per cent 12 months ago.But the additional jobs have yet to spur meaningful wage growth. read more


For BPA where to draw the line

first_img The Bonneville Power Administration is a federal agency that manages the Northwest power grid, including several Columbia River dams. The BPA’s sprawling transmission system covers all of Washington, Oregon and Idaho, plus parts of Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada and California.The power marketing agency brought in more than $3.2 billion in revenue in 2011.From 500 feet up, much of the route looks rugged and remote. The proposed footprint of a new high-powered transmission line crosses large swaths of forestland as it snakes through east and north Clark County.For Dave and Kelli Merriman, the project is more than a line on a map. They hold a different view: The view out their living room window.“That’s all going to change drastically. It’s not going to be the same,” said Kelli, sitting in the family’s home off Sunset Falls Road. “You can’t put a price on this.”As the Bonneville Power Administration narrows its focus around the proposed 500-kilovolt line through Clark and Cowlitz counties, the level of detail in planning has increased. So has the level of urgency for the landowners whose properties sit along the preferred route identified in November. At least one citizen group has hired a Seattle-based law firm, preparing for a legal fight. Click to enlargelast_img read more

Lok Sabha Elections 2019 Alia Bhatt Deepika Padukone Akshay Kumar not allowed

first_imgDeepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt and Akshay Kumar.Instagram / TwitterThe Indian General Elections 2019 have begun and a lot of Bollywood celebrities have been urging citizens to come out and cast their vote. In fact, Bollywood actors and filmmakers have never shied away from casting their ballot, always seen outside the polling booth posing with their inked finger.But do you know, there are some superstars in Bollywood who are not allowed by the Government of India to cast their vote in any Indian election? As per reports, these names are Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padukone, Akshay Kumar, Imran Khan and Katrina Kaif, to name a few. Let’s take a look at the Bollywood celebs who cannot cast their vote in the Lok Sabha Elections 2019, and why.Alia Bhatt: The 26-year-old actress cannot cast her ballot, as she holds a British passport. Alia Bhatt had revealed the same during the General Elections 2014, when she had told Hindustan Times, “Unfortunately, I can’t vote because I have a British passport. I am past the date (to get the official documents for voting) this time around, but I will try and get my voting card the next time (elections) once I get my dual citizenship.”Well, since India does not allow for dual citizenship, it’s obvious that Alia Bhatt can’t exercise her franchise in the Lok Sabha Elections 2019 as well. Or never, unless the rules change or she holds an Indian passport. Alia Bhatt in RaaziPR HandoutDeepika Padukone: Born in Copenhagen, Denmark, this daughter of badminton champ Prakash Padukone has brought many laurels to the country with her acting skills. But being born outside India and holding a Danish passport, she cannot cast her vote here.Akshay Kumar: Our Punjabi puttar Akshay Kumar is now a Canadian citizen and hence cannot cast his vote here in India. We wonder if he goes all the way to Canada during the elections there.Imran Khan: The handsome Bollywood actor who turned director with a short film cannot vote in the Lok Sabha Elections 2019. The reason being Imran Khan holds an American passport, as he was born in Madison, Wisconsin, United States to his father Anil Pal and mother Nuzhat Khan (actor-filmmaker Aamir Khan’s cousin). Imran has taken his mother’s surname. Imran Khan.PR Handout.Katrina Kaif: This Bollywood beauty may make every heart in the country skip a beat, but she is not allowed to cast her ballot in India. Well, that is because Katrina Kaif is a British citizen. Katrina KaifInstagramThere are many other Bollywood celebrities who only work in India but are not Indian citizens, like Sunny Leone, Jacqueline Fernandez and Nargis Fakhri. They, too, are not allowed to cast their ballot in the country.Pakistani singer Adnan Sami would be an exception, as he had applied for Indian citizenship and was granted the same. Let’s see if we see him at the polling booth as a registered voter during General Elections 2019.The Lok Sabha Elections 2019 are scheduled to be held in seven phases in India, from the date April 11 to May 19, 2019. The Election Results will be declared on May 23, 2019.last_img read more

Koei Tecmo confirms Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 wont get Western release

first_imgLast week, a Koei Tecmo representative stated — via a now-deleted Facebook thread — that Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 wouldn’t be getting released outside of Japan and Asia due to the ongoing debate in the West about how women are portrayed in video games. Koei Tecmo has officially confirmed that it has no plans to release the title in the West.When asked about whether or not Xtreme 3 would be released in the West, the representative said that there are “many issues” happening with regards of how females are represented in games, and that KT didn’t want to address those things. He said that because of that, the company made the decision to not release the game outside of Asia and Japan. On Twitter, the company posted: “The comments recently made by an employee regarding Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 on the official Dead or Alive Facebook page only reflect that individual’s opinion and not the opinion or business strategy of Koei Tecmo Games.”The statement went on to say: “We remain focused on delivering the best in fighting entertainment to our fans around the world, while consciously respecting and strategizing to support the different global audiences the Dead or Alive franchise lends itself to. Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 remains in development and is still planned for release in Japan and Asia only.”The official statement by KT doesn’t exactly invalidate what was said on the Dead or Alive Facebook page with regards to the reason the game isn’t coming to Europe or North America. The fact that KT is “consciously respecting” the different types of global audiences can be seen as them indeed not wanting to deal with any possible backlash that Xtreme 3 could incur from certain individuals and publications in the West.Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 will be released in Japan on February 26, 2016. Import retailer, Play-Asia, is selling an English version of the game on its website.last_img read more


Bill Introduced to Replace CFPB Director With Committee

first_img Share in Daily Dose, Featured, Government March 5, 2015 639 Views Bill Introduced to Replace CFPB Director With Committeecenter_img CFPB Federal Reserve HFSC Randy Neugebauer 2015-03-05 Samantha Guzman U.S. Representative Randy Neugebauer (R-Texas) introduced a bill this week intended to replace the director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) with a five-member commission. He announced his plan to support legislation in his testimony at a House Financial Services Committee (HFSC) hearing held on Tuesday, March 3.U.S. Rep. Randy Neugebauer“As we approach the five year anniversary of the Dodd-Frank Act, which created the CFPB, now is a good time to reflect on the Bureau’s impact on the American consumer,” said Neugebauer, who will be the keynote speaker at the Five Star Government Forum in Washington, D.C. on March 18. “Over the last several years, the Bureau’s actions and record have proven it can’t function in a sustainable manner. Perhaps, more than any other Washington agency, the CFPB has demonstrated a lack of transparency and a lack of accountability. It has proven it is susceptible to political influence – bringing into question its independence. This is all the more troubling because the Bureau has an important mission: to protect consumers.”HFSC Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas) warned of the overreach of the CFPB in his opening statement at Tuesday’s hearing and showed support for a five-member committee.“The CFPB undoubtedly remains the single most powerful and least accountable Federal agency in all of Washington. When it comes to the credit cards, auto loans and mortgages of hardworking taxpayers the CFPB has unbridled, discretionary power not only to make those less available and more expensive, but to absolutely take them away,” Hensarling said. “Consequently, Americans are losing both their financial independence and the protection of the rule of law.”Neugebauer’s proposal would replace the CFPB director with a bipartisan, five-member commission appointed by the president for five-year terms, with no more than three from a single political party. According to the draft legislation, the CFPB would also be renamed as the “Financial Product Safety Commission” and would no longer be funded by the Federal Reserve, but by its own budget appropriation.“The Bureau is fundamentally unaccountable to the president since the director can only be removed for cause. Fundamentally unaccountable to Congress because the Bureau’s funding is not subject to appropriations,” Hensarling said. “Fundamentally unaccountable to the courts because Dodd-Frank requires courts to grant the CFPB deference regarding its interpretation of federal consumer financial law. Thus, the Bureau regrettably remains unaccountable to the American people. That is why we need the CFPB on budget and led by a bipartisan commission; mere testimony is not the equivalent to accountability.”Credit unions and organizations representing banks have expressed support for the bill as well. A letter signed by the American Bankers Association, American Financial Services Association, Consumer Bankers Association, Credit Union National Association, Financial Services Roundtable, Independent Community Bankers of America, National Association of Federal Credit Unions, and U.S. Chamber of Commerce spoke of their shared belief in Neugebauer’s plan.“We believe that a five-member commission, as Congress originally intended, will better balance consumer access to financial products with the need to ensure a fair marketplace,” the bankers wrote in a letter on Wednesday. “In 2009, then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, then-House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank, and Ranking Member Maxine Waters led passage of legislation in the House with strong Democrat support to create a five-member commission to oversee the CFPB, which is nearly identical to what your legislation proposes to do.”A similar bill was introduced in the House a year ago but it failed in the Senate. Last month, Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) revived legislation that would appoint an independent Inspector General to the CFPB in hopes to improve oversight. Representatives Steve Stivers (R-Ohio) and Tim Walz (D-Minnesota) revived a similar bill last month in the House.(Editor’s note: The Five Star Institute is the parent company of The MReport and theMReport.com)last_img read more
