US Briefs Argentina On Alleged Iran Plot

December 20, 2020 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: yzhnxslpc.

first_img On October 12, U.S. Deputy Secretary of State William Burns briefed Argentine officials on the alleged Iranian plot to kill the Saudi ambassador in Washington, D.C., a U.S. spokeswoman said. “Argentina was one of the countries called by Deputy Secretary Burns today,” U.S. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told reporters when asked if Argentina was among countries briefed about the plot. But she said she would not “go beyond” what was in the indictment charging two Iranians with plotting to kill the envoy when a reporter asked if the plot also involved plans to bomb the Israeli and Saudi embassies in Buenos Aires. “I would simply say that we do believe that there were other targets and there were follow-on notions by these plotters, but we do believe that the entire plot has now been disrupted,” Nuland said. Argentina accused current and former top Iranian officials – including former president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani – of being behind the 1994 bombing of the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association that killed 85 people. The Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires was also the target of an attack in 1992, in which 29 people were killed and 200 wounded. Lawmakers, meanwhile, warned that the plot in which Iran allegedly tried to enlist the help of a Mexican drug cartel member – who turned out to be a U.S. informant – showed Iran’s growing activity in Latin America.

NAFCU witness Grooms: ‘The time to act is now’ for regulatory relief

December 17, 2020 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: egielqmer.

first_imgNAFCU witness Steve Grooms, president and CEO of 1st Liberty Federal Credit Union of Great Falls, Mont., told the Senate Banking Committee “the time to act is now and we stand ready to work with you” on meaningful regulatory relief for the credit union industry.During the hearing, “Fostering Economic Growth: The Role of Financial Institutions in Local Communities,” Grooms testified that credit unions are suffering under the compliance burden resulting from laws meant to curb bad actors after the financial crisis, despite the fact that credit unions were not to blame for the crisis and continued lending when others did not. Grooms noted that more than 1,500 – more than 20 percent – of credit unions have closed since the enactment of the Dodd-Frank Act, “with many citing the growing compliance burden as the reason they can’t survive.”Grooms noted that if Congress wants to foster economic growth, it is vital to enact regulatory relief measures for credit unions, including: relaxed field-of-membership restrictions, modernized credit union capital standards, exemptions from rules targeting banks and larger institutions including the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act, more freedom for member business lending and a total credit union exemption from the CFPB’s rulemaking. 14SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading »last_img read more

first_imgFacebook8Tweet0Pin1 Submitted by Flamenco OlympiaOnce again Olympia’s Washington Center for Performing Arts is privileged to host a distinguished music and dance performance from Spain. With their annual United States tour,  Conservatorio Fundación Flamenco Casa Patas of Madrid, Spain, is in pursuit of its mission to promote the unique art of flamenco — which was recently recognized by UNESCO as a “Contribution… and Cultural Heritage of Humanity”—not only to perform but also teach  flamenco worldwide.This program is supported by the Government of Spain through its Honorary Consul in Seattle, which brings over 120 cultural events from Spain to the Northwest, including Seattle Art Museum, Benaroya Hall and Town Hall in Seattle, Meany Hall/UW, and Olympia. This, their 5th appearance in Olympia, introduces two new dancers here for their performance:This year, Casa Patas presents Flamenco(s) of Lead and Copper.Accompanied by talented cantaores and musicians, the explosive dances of Mariana Collado and Carlos Chamorro lead us into the mysterious world of flamenco — with an allusion to metallurgy, in which primitive elements are extracted, refined and fused to new strengths and grandeur.Mariana Collado, creator of this program, is a graduate of the Royal Professional Dance Conservatory of Spain and has performed widely with many eminent flamenco artists, including Cristina Hoyos and Antonia Gades, ranging from intimate tablaos in Spain to prestigious international festivals.Carlos Chamorro’s acclaim both as dancer and choreographer led to his position of soloist and principal dancer of the Spanish National Ballet, and recognition as “ambassador” of Spanish dance internationally, on stages from Moscow to New York. He has received major awards throughout his career, including Spain’s “Most Outstanding Dancer Prize – 2012”.Flamenco Casa PatasThe Washington Center for Performing Arts512 Washington St SE,  Olympia WA  or  360-753-8586For information regarding year-round flamenco events in the Olympia area contact: Ianus Foundation/Flamenco Project at flamenco_olympia@comcast.netlast_img read more
