Circuit Court requesting ten minutes of argument time during the oral argument in the rehearing en banc in the PHH Corp case against the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). The argument is to be held on May 24.The D.C. circuit court allows for 30 minutes per side for oral argument. In its request for argument time, the DOJ stated that because “our position in this case does not fully align with either party,” it is requesting that “instead of sharing time with either party, we receive a total of ten minutes for the United States.”“We respectfully request leave to present oral argument in support of the position taken by the United States,” the motion states. “The United States has a unique interest in the resolution of the question presented, which centers on the validity of a statutory limitation on the President’s authority.”The DOJ previously filed an amicus brief in support of PHH Corp, declaring the Bureau unconstitutional. The 33-page brief from the DOJ focuses largely on President Trump’s power to replace the CFPB director.Justice Department lawyers have argued that the current structure of the CFPB are problematic, as it allows the presidency to remove the director only for negligence or malfeasance. The brief states that, instead, the president can remove the director at will.”Limitations on the president’s authority to remove a single agency head are a recent development to which the executive branch has consistently objected,” the Justice Department’s previous brief said. “Under the Constitution and Supreme Court precedent, the general rule is that the president must have authority to remove executive branch agency heads at will.”The DOJ’s position is that the CFPB is unconstitutional, but calls for restructuring. PHH, however, has called for the complete dismantling of the CFPB.The entire motion from the Department of Justice can be found here.

Officials at the Bailey Station Post Office demonstrated the site and its services for customers Tuesday. “Almost anything you can do at a post office you can do on line at USPS.com,” Anita Bizzotto, USPS executive vice president said in a statement. “While we welcome customers and business to the post office, we also understand that our customers are busy.” The Web site, www.usps.com, offers about three dozen services and products online. Among the most popular online services are Click-N-Ship and package pickup, both free. Click-N-Ship allows customers to print shipping labels from their computer and pay for postage with a credit card. With Carrier Pickup, online customers can arrange to have their packages picked up at their homes or small businesses. “Southern California is our busiest area, and we need to provide customers with alternate access channels,” said Sandy Frankel, small business specialist for U.S. Postal Service. “Anybody who doesn’t want to make the trip to the post office could certainly use their computer as their post office.” Online customers can also buy stamps and request free shipping supplies via the Web site. Alberto Herrera, 45, of Whittier said he likes the idea of doing business from home, but he still enjoys trekking to the Bailey Station Post Office. “I like taking the trip into Uptown,” he said. “I can get lunch and come in to drop off my mail.” [email protected] (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3024160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Related Posts sarah perez Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#Amazon#web According to Peter Rojas, former co-founer of Engadget and now co-founder of gdgt, the highly anticipated Amazon Android tablet may be coming from Samsung. Citing only “sources within the industry,” Rojas claims he’s “99% certain” that Amazon is having Samsung build its tablet computer for them and it’s expected to arrive no later than this summer.He also speculates about the possibility of the tablet running Android 3.0 Honeycomb (or not), as well as what type of content Amazon plans to sell on it. (Hint: more than apps!)How Credible the Rumor?Rojas has covered mobile devices and gadgets for a long time, not only at Engadget, which he helped start, but also at Gizmodo. Now his consumer-focused social networking, reviews and support site around gadgets, gdgt, keeps him directly plugged into industry moves and trends.In other words, this is no small-time blogger with a small-time scoop – it’s a rumor whose source is reputable and knowledgable. All that being said, it’s still just a rumor.Amazon Tablet: Honeycomb? Disruptive? Cheap?According to Rojas’ insider info and great big dollop of speculation, the Samsung/Amazon Android tablet should be out sometime soon, probably no later than summer 2011. And, he says, it will likely have something that substantially differentiates it from its competition.The most recently launched Android tablets, notably Motorola’s Xoom and Samsung’s Galaxy Tab, have not performed as well as those companies would have liked thus far. This is due to not only the high cost of tablets tied to mobile carrier contracts, but the raw nature of the unpolished version of Google’s tablet-optimized mobile operating system (OS), also known as Honeycomb.With this in mind, it’s not surprising to hear Rojas speculate that Amazon’s tablet may not run Honeycomb as has been expected, but, like its top competitor, the Barnes & Noble’s Nook Color, it may use Android as the base for its tablet. It’s also entirely possible that Amazon will build “a totally customized experience that tightly integrates Amazon services,” Rojas said. By doing so, Amazon could reduce the initial cost of the tablet because it would serve as a vehicle that drove sales for the online retailer over time. Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market That idea isn’t so different from how gaming console systems are generally subsidized today – the profit comes from selling games, not the console hardware. Similarly, on Amazon, the profit would come from not only the apps sold through Amazon’s new Appstore for Android, whose pricing has been the center of controversy as of late, but also music and video, and even physical goods, too.It’s not difficult to connect the dots between Amazon’s recent launches – the above-mentioned app store, the new web-baed streaming music and media service called Cloud Drive and the recent changes to Amazon’s online video service, Amazon Prime – and figure out that Amazon is up to something. Still, it’s good to see it confirmed, even if through anonymous sources like this.But the biggest question about the forthcoming tablet, and the one that remains unanswered, is the pricing. Rojas says that if Amazon’s smart, it will be aggressive here, not only beating the iPad, but matching or besting the Nook’s pricing, too. For a truly competitive 7-inch tablet, the price to beat is $250, says Rojas.$250, you say? Heck, for that price, we’ll take two! What about you? A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…
“I think he’ll recover in time… but that’s what Brazilians are worrying about,” the 21-year-old said.Images of Sunday’s fateful duel between Neymar and Marseille player Bouna Sarr have been replayed incessantly on television, often in slo-mo.Lasmar said he was aware of the pressure.“It’s clear there are goals to reach in terms of timing and we will do our best to meet the deadlines,” he said.The UOL sports website reported that Neymar may recuperate at his residence in Mangaratiba, on the coast of Rio state. The luxury residence has the facilities that would allow the star’s medical team to run a full physiotherapy program, the report said. Pussycat Dolls set for reunion tour after 10-year hiatus Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Dressed in a black hoodie, a black baseball cap and wearing sunglasses, Neymar left the plane in a wheelchair. He smiled and took selfies with other passengers before leaving on a private jet to an undisclosed destination.Neymar could arrive at the hospital on Friday by helicopter for maximum privacy, according to local press reports. From the airport he may have headed straight for his villa in the Rio area, the reports said.At the Mater Dei de Belo Horizonte hospital, an entire wing has been reserved for Neymar and his entourage, and staff have been warned to uphold the facility’s policy regarding confidentiality, said GloboEsporte.Serious fractureThe initial assessment did not appear as serious on Sunday, when Neymar was reported to have suffered a hairline fracture of the fifth metatarsal, as well as a twisted ankle late in PSG’s 3-0 win over Marseille in Ligue 1.ADVERTISEMENT LOOK: Iya Villania meets ‘Jumanji: The Next Level’ cast in Mexico John Lloyd Cruz a dashing guest at Vhong Navarro’s wedding Blazers beat Timberwolves for fifth straight win Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH MOST READ Google honors food scientist, banana ketchup inventor and war hero Maria Orosa Typhoon ‘Tisoy’ threatens Games Families in US enclave in north Mexico hold sad Thanksgiving PSG’s Neymar, center left, is tackled by Marseille’s Hiroki Sakai, during the French League One soccer match between Paris Saint-Germain and Marseille at the Parc des Princes Stadium, in Paris, France, Sunday, Feb. 25, 2018. (AP Photo/Thibault Camus)Brazilian superstar Neymar will be sidelined for up to three months — perilously close to the eve of the World Cup — after undergoing surgery on his broken foot, his doctor says.The worse than previously announced prognosis came as the Paris Saint-Germain striker, 26, arrived in Rio de Janeiro from Paris for Saturday’s operation.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES “The (recovery) period will be around two and a half to three months,” national team surgeon Rodrigo Lasmar, who flew with Neymar, said Thursday.The injury has not only ruled the world’s most expensive player out of PSG’s make-or-break Champions League clash with Real Madrid on March 6, but more worryingly for the football-mad public in Brazil, also threatens the much-fancied national side’s build-up to the World Cup, starting in Russia on June 14.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutLasmar, who will lead the surgery at a hospital in Belo Horizonte, said there is no quick fix for the striker.“It’s not a simple fracture, but a fracture in an important bone in the middle of the foot,” Lasmar said.

We were unanimous in agreeing that it would have to be surgical treatment. More conservative treatment, without surgery, would present a far greater risk for refracture. We can’t run that risk.”The drama is a big personal setback for Neymar, who has been at the centre of the world’s footballing attention since his 222 million-euro ($264 million) move from Barcelona last August.He has scored 28 goals in 30 appearances in all competitions for PSG since arriving. But on Sunday he looked to be in tears as he was stretchered off the field at the Parc des Princes.PSG lost 3-1 to Real Madrid in the first leg of their European tie in Spain two weeks ago and are in danger of being knocked out of the competition in the last 16 for the second season running.– Neymar misses friendlies –Brazilians’ attention is entirely trained on the World Cup, where they have ambitions of walking away with a sixth title after the humiliation of crashing out 7-1 to Germany in the 2014 semi-finals on home soil — a match Neymar missed after picking up an injury in the last eight against Colombia.Even if Neymar gets back in time, he appears sure to miss two warm-up friendlies against Russia and Germany in March.“Brazilians have high hopes for the World Cup with him and many are afraid he won’t be able to take part,” said one fan, kiosk owner Gabriel Tavares Barreto in Rio de Janeiro.
Share on Facebook Championship Share via Email Sheffield Wednesday Wolverhampton Wanderers Share on WhatsApp Impressive Wolverhampton Wanderers extended their lead at the top of the Championship to seven points thanks to a classy first-half strike from Rúben Neves.Sheffield Wednesday, who are now without a win in their last six outings, never looked likely to derail Wolves’ title ambitions and their task was made even harder when Morgan Fox was sent off late on after receiving his second yellow card.“I thought it was a deserved win but it was tough,” said the Wolves manager, Nuno Santo. “When you don’t control the game you have to stick together and defend well. It was a good [goal] from Rúben, but there were moments when we should have done better in the last third.”Wolves made the brighter start, with Ivan Cavaleiro shooting wide following Diogo Jota’s burst forward. Léo Bonatini then looked to create an opening, producing some trickery on the right-hand side of the area before seeing his cross deflected into the grateful arms of the keeper Joe Wildsmith.Wednesday’s first chance fell to Adam Reach, who spurned a great opportunity following a Jordan Rhodes knock-down, firing well wide from inside the area. John Ruddy, the Wolves keeper, was then forced to make a good save, getting down to his right to keep out a header from Joost van Aken.However, the match was illuminated in the 34th minute as Wolves offered a glimpse of the talent among their pack. A free-kick from Cavaleiro was headed out but only as far as Neves, who placed a 20-yard shot inside Wildsmith’s left-hand post with the minimum of fuss.Looking to make a positive start to the second half, Wednesday were on the attack soon after the restart with Liam Palmer screwing a shot wide from the edge of the D. Wolves responded with Bonatini causing problems once again on the right-hand side and Van Aken had to be at full stretch to divert the ball for a corner.Romain Saïss then put a glancing header wide from Cavaleiro’s free-kick. Bonatini slipped inside the area after receiving the ball from Matt Doherty but then regained his footing and put a low shot wide.The Wednesday manager, Carlos Carvalhal – serving a one-match ban after his dismissal in the recent match with Hull – saw his side make a double substitution, sending on strikers Lucas João and Atdhe Nuhiu in place of Rhodes and Jacob Butterfield. João had a good chance just a minute later, putting a close-range header over after meeting Palmer’s cross. After that, the hosts never threatened to mount a comeback and they had Fox sent off five minutes from time.“We played some good football but we must achieve more,” said Carvalhal, whose side are in 15th place. He praised the team for playing “with quality and with heart” but added: “We must be more of a threat.” Topics Share on Messenger match reports Share on Twitter Share on Pinterest Share on LinkedIn Reuse this content
FORT WORTH — After an all-day meeting with global aviation regulators, the chief of the Federal Aviation Administration sounded more upbeat than ever about prospects for clearing the troubled Boeing 737 Max to fly again.Aviation officials from more 30 countries met with the FAA to hear the U.S. regulator’s approach to reviewing changes that Boeing is making after two crashes that killed 346 people.“We are going through an incredibly intensive and robust process to make the safety case to unground the Max,” acting FAA Administrator Daniel Elwell told reporters when the closed-door meeting was over. He added that the agency won’t let the plane fly “until we have made that safety case.”Boeing has not yet submitted a final, formal application for its update to a flight-control system that has been implicated in crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia. That submission will be followed by test flights to demonstrate the changes to FAA experts.Elwell declined to put a timetable on the plane’s return or comment on reports that FAA officials told a separate meeting of airline officials in Montreal that the plane could be cleared for flights in the U.S. as soon as late June.The meeting Thursday in Fort Worth, Texas, was crucial to the U.S. agency’s hopes of convincing other regulators around the world to lift their bans on the plane soon after the FAA does.Among those scheduled to attend were regulators from China, Europe and Canada, as well as officials from Indonesia and Ethiopia, sites of the two crashes that occurred before the Max was grounded worldwide in March.More news: A new low for no-frills flying: easyJet assigns backless seat to passengerBoeing is fixing flight-control software that in each accident pushed the plane’s nose down based on faulty readings from a single sensor. It will tie the system to more than one sensor and make it less powerful _ pilots for Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines were unable to counter the system’s automatic nose-down pitch.Elwell has said he hopes other regulators will lift their bans on the plane soon after the FAA does.However, regulators in China, the European Union and Canada have said they plan to conduct their own reviews of Boeing’s software changes and have stressed the need for additional pilot training.Once airlines get the green light, they will have to remove their Max jets from long-term storage and prepare them for flying. That will take anywhere from two days to a week, said Ali Bahrami, the FAA’s associate director of aviation safety.A far more significant delay in the plane’s return to service could occur if regulators decide that pilots should train in flight simulators first. Boeing is pushing for computer-based training only. Elwell said the FAA has not made a final decision, and that during Thursday’s meeting no other country said it would insist on simulator training.The FAA did not allow reporters to attend or watch the meeting, and it kept them away from international aviation officials who attended the all-day session at a gated FAAoffice.More news: Hotel charges Bollywood star $8.50 for two bananas and the Internet has thoughtsIt is unclear whether the event will do much to convince travellers that the Max is safe.Barclays said that its survey this month of 1,765 travellers in North America and Europe found that nearly half plan to avoid flying on the Max for a year or longer. About half said they would pick a non-Max flight if given the choice.Airlines are making plans for a campaign to reassure nervous customers. They know it won’t be easy.American Airlines CEO Doug Parker told NBC that because of all the news coverage of the crashes and their aftermath, no amount of marketing will sway worried passengers.“There may be some period of time” before customers are comfortable flying on the plane, Parker said, “but we will work through that.” He suggested that if passengers see U.S. pilots getting on board, they will follow.United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz said this week that he will be on the carrier’s next Max flight. He added, however, that United would let passengers who don’t want to fly on the plane rebook without the customary ticket-change fee.The Flight Safety Foundation, a non-profit group based in the Washington suburbs, is urging regulators to co-ordinate recertification of the Max. The group’s CEO, Hassan Shahidi, said that would lift public confidence and be less disruptive than a fragmented, country-by-country return of the plane.
