Another fidelity bond legal dispute between the NCUA and an insurance company revealed that a former manager and assistant manager were running a check-kiting scheme that led to a loss of nearly $700,000 and contributed to the involuntary liquidation of an Indiana credit union.According to court documents filed last week by the NCUA and Southwest Marine and General Insurance Co. of Scottsdale, Ariz., Sandra Santay, manager of the $7.5 million Lakeside Federal Credit Union in Hammond, Ind., and the credit union’s assistant manager, Paula Awe, allegedly operated a check-kiting scheme through their Lakeside checking accounts from January 2012 to April 2015.The fraud was uncovered during an NCUA examination in April 2015. When examiners confronted Santay, she verbally admitted that she and Awe were kiting checks that amounted to $690,120. Soon after the NCUA determined Lakeside was insolvent and closed its operations in July, the $3 billion, South Bend, Ind.-based Teachers Credit Union purchased Lakeside’s loan portfolio and assumed its 2,280 members. 13SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading »

Aubameyang is valued at around £50m (Picture: Getty)Arteta is particularly keen on a forward because the Gunners fear that they will lose Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this summer.The Gabon international has one year to run on his deal at the Emirates and he’s attracted attention from Barcelona.Arsenal are still hopeful they he can be convinced to stay but negotiations over a new deal have subsided and the Gunners will listen to bids of around £50m, particularly if they miss out on Champions League qualification. Arteta’s preference remains to keep Aubameyang, particularly as he’s club captain. Should the Spaniard be forced into sellling to buy, he’d rather raise funds through the sale of Alexandre Lacazette.The Frenchman has found playing time hard to come by under Arteta and is valued at around £35m.MORE: Tammy Abraham admits he’d ‘love’ to play alongside Manchester United star Marcus Rashford Odsonne Edouard is valued at £35m (Picture: Getty)Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is interested in signing Celtic forward Odsonne Edouard this summer as the Spaniard looks to bolster his frontline.The Frenchman’s value has skyrocketed since joining the Bhoys from Paris Saint-Germain in a club record £9m deal.

26 Sep 2015 Alice makes it two out of two England’s Alice Hewson has done it again – with her second win from two starts on the US women’s college circuit. Hewson, an 18-year-old international from Berkhamsted in Hertfordshire, has made a dream start to her career at Clemson University in South Carolina. She tied for first place in her first tournament with a six-under par score and days later took the honours at the Lady Paladin Invitational with a score of three-under for 54 holes. She is only the second Clemson woman golfer to win consecutive tournaments. “What a tremendous accomplishment to not only win once, but to win back to back tournaments,” said Head Coach J.T. Horton of his freshman golfer. “She has tremendous poise and maturity for a freshman. We are proud of her.” Hewson had rounds of 67-73-73 in claiming the two-shot victory over Jess Meek and Michelle Butler of Missouri. Hewson is now nine-under-par for her six rounds at Clemson. Her five-under 67 in the first round of the tournament was just one shot off the Lady Paladin Tournament record and was the second best round in Clemson history. Image © Leaderboard Photography
Sancho: TTFA chief has questions to answer PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC): Former Sports Minister Brent Sancho says the dramatic resignation of men’s head coach Tom Saintfiet has left Football Association president, David John-Williams, with plenty explaining to do. The 43-year-old Belgian quit the post on Tuesday after a mere five weeks in charge, citing a lack of support from the FA and also claiming that John-Williams had “double-guessed” his appointment from the very first day. “I think that is where he has some very strong questioning to face. I think the statements made by Mr Saintfiet contains some very serious allegations as it relates to staff selection and player selection,” Sancho contended. Outlaws keeping tabs on Russell LONDON (CMC): Nottinghamshire are weighing up another move for West Indies Twenty20 star Andre Russell, as they seek to strengthen for next summer’s T20 Blast. The 29-year-old impressed in three outings for the Outlaws last season and new head coach Peter Moores said the English County side was monitoring his availability with the hope of once again securing his services. “I would think Andre Russell is at the top of most people’s lists to sign. He’s very much someone who bowls with pace and he hits the ball as cleanly as anyone in the game,” said the former England head coach. Narine fails to stop record run chase MELBOURNE, Australia (CMC): A disruptive spell from West Indies Twenty20 star spinner Sunil Narine for Melbourne Renegades was upstaged by a maiden Twenty20 hundred from Ben McDermott that set up a thrilling, record two-wicket victory for the Hobart Hurricanes in a high-scoring Big Bash League match yesterday. Narine was the most successful bowler for the Renegades, grabbing three for 27 from four overs, but the 22-year-old McDermott smashed eight fours and nine sixes in 114 from 52 balls to put the Hurricanes firmly on course for a target of 223 at the Docklands Stadium and the highest successful run chase in the tournament’s history. Before Narine trapped him leg before wicket in the 16th over, McDermott shared 151 for the third wicket with Australia international George Bailey. Earlier, Australia international Aaron Finch hit the top score of 63 from 40 balls and Netherlands international Tom Cooper supported with an unbeaten 53 from 24 balls, as the Renegades posted 222 for four from their allocation of 20 overs.
Pinterest Both McNair and Trump clearly spoke for the legion of white Americans that have tuned out NFL football in reaction – an ESPN survey found most whites disagree with the protests and TV ratings are down. The entire pretext of that closed-door NFL owners meeting where McNair spoke those words was about the desire for control, the urgent and evergreen agenda item yoked to seemingly every conversation about black athletes. One can hardly imagine white athletes being so infantilized. Rob Gronkowski thrives on his party animal reputation (although much of that may be artful self-promotion: he does not drink alcohol during the season) while his fellow NFL tight end Travis Kelce is known for his hot temper and brash persona. Joe Namath owned a piece of a New York nightclub while on the Jets roster. When they talk about burning the candle at both ends, no one calls them immature. They don’t have to keep winning to justify their night-owling the way Michael Jordan and Lawrence Taylor, the New York Giants’ Hall of Fame linebacker, had to. They get grace. Richie Incognito can leave a voicemail for his Miami Dolphins team-mate calling him “a half-nigger piece of shit”, and get another job with the Buffalo Bills after the scandal dies down. Tony Stewart’s career as a Nascar star and team co-owner can cruise along, with minimal interruption, even after he runs over and kills someone during an amateur event (the death was later ruled an accident). Johnny Manziel, the Heisman trophy winner turned NFL flameout, gets grace – gets called a good kid who just needs to grow up. Kizer? He’s the irresponsible quarterback. Never mind if his excursion, late as it was, was likely the first night off he’d earnestly taken for himself since being drafted by the Browns last April. (Kizer is a triple threat: he can run, he can pass and he’s harder on himself than any coach.) Never mind that he can’t go looking for trouble, not with a bailiff for a mother and a police officer for a father. Never mind that Kizer “was at the facility the next day, preparing for the [Titans] game”.His sweat equity is starting to pay off. On the road against the Detroit Lions last Sunday, Kizer posted a career day (232 yards passing, 57 more rushing and a pair of touchdowns through the air and on the ground) and had the Browns trending toward a win before he was briefly knocked out of the game late in the third quarter with a rib injury. Cleveland eventually fell 38-24 but the game showed that the Browns can be competitive if their receivers don’t drop Kizer’s passes, a chemistry problem that has plagued the team all season. Kizer’s prime target is Kenny Britt, a dazzling if mischievous talent who for whatever reason (maybe a knee injury) hasn’t been able to connect with his quarterback all season. Britt and another misfit receiver, an injured second-year man named Corey Coleman, were out with Kizer on the night the Snapchat video was filmed. Rounding out their party were linebacker Christian Kirksey and two native Ohioans who play for the Kansas City Chiefs: running back Kareem Hunt and Kelce, the aforementioned party animal. So this wasn’t a true night out for Kizer. This was maybe a team-building exercise, or a chance to talk shop outside of shop walls.Kizer, and black athletes like him, deserve the benefit of the doubt. I can’t wait to see the day that they finally get it. Share on Pinterest Sportblog US sports Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant ejected as Warriors lose again Cleveland Browns Share on Messenger Support The Guardian Twitter Share on Twitter Share via Email You’d think that Jackson, a man who makes a living breaking down tape, could see the Kizer video for the gotcha moment that it is. You’d think that Jackson, a black coach, could appreciate how often black athletes feature in such gotcha moments. But, no. Confirmation bias against black athletes is so pervasive that it’s practically conventional wisdom. Even when they don’t do anything wrong, they must be guilty of something.It’s a pretzeled logic that springs from decades of media conditioning – or so reasons Dr Cynthia Frisby, the University of Missouri’s School of Journalism professor behind a 2016 study that examines how black male athletes are portrayed in the media. After analyzing a decade’s worth of clippings, she found that black athletes received “significantly more negative coverage” – hard news stories about domestic and sexual violence, in other words. Meanwhile, their white counterparts – the minority group in the landscape of big-time sports, ironically – get the opposite: softball features about drive and commitment.What’s more, the sisters can’t catch a break either. In the last four months alone we’ve seen Serena Williams caricatured in antiquated style, as a big ol’ brute – this time in a recent memoir by Maria Sharapova, an oft-vanquished peer who happens to be five inches taller than the American. And we’ve seen Simone Biles shamed for having the audacity to go on holiday after dominating the gymnastics at the Rio Olympics. We’ve been reminded that black athletes can be everything: grand slam champions, Olympic gold medalists, explosive, magic. Everything, that is, except benign.Kevin Durant knows. Last month the Golden State Warriors forward was ejected from a road game against the Memphis Grizzlies, and heckled by fans on his way out. To silence them, he raised his ring finger, a nod to the championship he led the Warriors to last season, and was immediately accused of flipping off the crowd. The confirmation bias was obvious, so much that Durant had to laugh about it afterward: “I’m sure everyone thinks I’m the angry black athlete,” he said.How could he not be when we’ve been conditioned to believe that the angry black athlete can literally be every one. They can be Curt Flood or Muhammad Ali or Colin Kaepernick, entitled to their anger. They can be Latrell Sprewell or Terrell Owens or Floyd Mayweather, hot-blooded. They can be Durant, the mama’s boy who delivered one of the all-time Hallmark moments in sports with his league MVP acceptance speech three years ago. Ultimately it won’t matter because they all look the same – like “inmates running the prison”.

OK, not for a friend. For DeShone Kizer, the beleaguered rookie quarterback of the terrible Cleveland Browns.Early one Saturday morning last month Kizer ducked into a downtown bar for a break, a bit of release. The pressure on him at the time surely pinched, what with the Browns being 0-6 and his passer rating at a league-worst 27.3. He is of legal drinking age, didn’t break any laws and didn’t violate any sacrosanct policies held by the team. But a Zapruder-grade Snapchat video emerged of Kizer at the bar – although he looks less like a starting NFL quarterback than a rebel prep-schoolboy as he attempts conversation on the fringe of a loud and crowded dance floor.A local TV station went on to cover the story like it was the Paradise Papers. Naturally, these findings quickly found their way into a news conference with the Browns coach, Hue Jackson, who was sympathetic to Kizer at first. “A guy’s personal time is his personal time,” he said. “I’d be surprised if that happened. I don’t think DeShone has that kind of character or personality that way.”But when a reporter from the station that scored the video insisted to Jackson that, yes, not only did this night out happen, but “to a guy trying to learn the playbook”, the coach shifted support. “You’re right,” he told the reporter. “I appreciate you guys sharing that with me.” NFL features Basketball Read more Since you’re here… Golden State Warriors Facebook Those, of course, were the immortal words Houston Texans owner Bob McNair used in reference to NFL players using the national anthem as a platform to protest a justice system that’s equally demonizing of black men. Frisby’s study underscored this point in her survey, which cites research that arrived at three dominant media images of black men: entertainers, athletes and criminals. Donald Trump also underscored this point when he dismissed genuflecting players as sons of bitches. Kizer, among those protesters, was quick to respond. “I’m no son of a bitch,” he said.
