    President Donald Trump has promised sweeping reforms to "horrendous" US banking regulations that were introduced after the financial crisis. "We're going to do a very major haircut on Dodd-Frank," he said, referring to the Wall Street and consumer protection rules Barack Obama enacted in 2010. Dodd-Frank aimed to prevent banks taking on too much risk and to separate their investment and commercial arms.
  • Canada to allow banks to use deposits to cover the banks debts

    Government of Canada - 2016 Budget ^ | 26 August 2016 | Government of Canada
    Introducing a Bank Recapitalization “Bail-in” Regime To protect Canadian taxpayers in the unlikely event of a large bank failure, the Government is proposing to implement a bail-in regime that would reinforce that bank shareholders and creditors are responsible for the bank’s risks—not taxpayers. This would allow authorities to convert eligible long-term debt of a failing systemically important bank into common shares to recapitalize the bank and allow it to remain open and operating. Such a measure is in line with international efforts to address the potential risks to the financial system and broader economy of institutions perceived as “too-big-to-fail”. The...

    U.S. Army sergeant Kendall Oliver (who is a transgender man and goes by the pronoun "they") says they went into a barbershop to get a haircut and were told the barbershop wouldn't cut their hair because they don't offer haircuts to "women," The Guardian reports. Richard Hernandez, who owns the barbershop, didn't dispute what Oliver claims happened, but also didn't seem aware that Hernandez identified as a transgender man (though Oliver says they did try to explain that to him and he wouldn't listen). Hernandez said this isn't an issue about LGBT rights, and that the barbershop "simply [doesn't] cut...

    Actually, Trump's comb-over is a marvel of hair engineering- a complex, lattice-like affair involving advanced design/materials consisting of multiple alternate layers of hair planks and lacquer... kind of like how they make a fiberglass boat,  no wonder it's durability is legendary.  Hey, the guy builds skyscrapers for a living-- probably had one of his engineers do the CAD/CAM model so they could test the structural rigidity: Basically, he's just trying to maintain the same hairstyle he sported from the 1980s (most people stick with a certain look after some point) back when The Donald still had a more full head of...

    WASHINGTON -- Every sulfurous belch from the molten interior of the volcanic Trump phenomenon injures the chances of a Republican presidency. After Donald Trump finishes plastering a snarling face on conservatism, any Republican nominee will face a dauntingly steep climb to reach even the paltry numbers that doomed Mitt Romney. It is perhaps quixotic to try to distract Trump's supporters with facts, which their leader, who is no stickler for dignity, considers beneath him. Still, consider these: The white percentage of the electorate has been shrinking for decades and will be about 2 points smaller in 2016 than in 2012....

    Hillary Clinton put part of Bergdorf Goodman on lockdown on Friday to get a $600 haircut at the swanky John Barrett Salon.....with a huge entourage in tow, Hillary was spotted being ushered through a side entrance. “Staff closed off one side of Bergdorf’s so Hillary could come in privately. An elevator bank was shut down so she could ride up alone. She was styled in a private area of the salon so that other customers didn’t get a glimpse. " Hillary was later seen with a new feathered hairdo. Clinton regularly sees salon owner Barrett, who charges regular mortals $600...

    Greek banks are preparing contingency plans for a possible “bail-in” of depositors amid fears The plans, which call for a “haircut” of at least 30 per cent on deposits above €8,000, sketch out an increasingly likely scenario for at least one bank, the sources said. A Greek bail-in could resemble the rescue plan agreed by Cyprus in 2013, when customers’ funds were seized to shore up the banks, with a haircut imposed on uninsured deposits over €100,000. Meanwhile, Yanis Varoufakis swears this is nothing but a "malicious rumor": FT report of a Gk Bank Bail In is a malicious rumour...

    There is nothing quite like the petty despotism of the public school system. A boy from McMinnville, Tennessee, was suspended after coming to Bobby Ray Memorial Elementary School with a haircut deemed inappropriate by the principal. It was a "high and tight" military-style haircut that the boy had requested so that he would look more like his step-brother, an active-duty soldier. The principal did not budge, leaving the boy's mother no choice but to shave his head so that he could come back to school.

    Adam Stinnett looks up to his older stepbrother – a soldier in the U.S. Army. So when it came time to get a haircut, the seven-year-old told his mother he wanted a basic military-style cut. And that’s exactly what he got – high and tight – just like his stepbrother. Adam got his haircut on March 8. On March 9, his mother got a letter from the principal of Bobby Ray Memorial Elementary School in McMinnville, Tennessee. It seems they were not all that thrilled with the second grader’s new hairdo. The principal told Amy Stinnett that her son’s haircut...

    During her confirmation hearings last week, Loretta Lynch, President Obama's choice to succeed Eric Holder as attorney general, called civil forfeiture, a form of legalized theft in which the government takes people's property without accusing them of a crime, "a wonderful tool." Lynch, currently the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York, suggested that innocent owners need not worry about getting hammered by this tool, because forfeiture "is done pursuant to supervision by a court," and "the protections are there." In light of a forfeiture case that Lynch's office had abruptly dropped the previous week, her assurances rang...

    Billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer’s super PAC, Next Gen Climate, wants to implement a “haircut strategy” against Republican campaigns in order to depress conservative turnout. “Our Republican Haircut Strategy — a precision focus on a specific harm in target Republican markets — we will seek to degrade Republican performance,” a memo from Steyer’s super PAC explains in a memo obtained by Politico that the RNC flagged as a “voter suppression” tactic. “The election results in many states may be as narrow as a few thousand votes, so we sought to determine whether we could have an impact at the margins of...

The victim said she lives in the area and was confronted by the man as she returned to her home from a workout. “I screamed 'fire,' thinking somebody would come, but he had a hand over my mouth,” she said. He told me if I didn’t stop screaming that he would kill me and my animals.”

    CINCINNATI (AP) -- Attorneys for a group of Amish men and women found guilty of hate crimes for cutting the hair and beards of fellow members of their faith in eastern Ohio are arguing that the group's conviction, sentencing and imprisonment in separate facilities across the country violates their constitutional rights and amounts to cruel and unusual punishment, according to recent court filings. The filings in federal court in Akron seek the release of seven of 16 Amish convicted in September in the 2011 attacks that were meant to shame fellow Amish they believed were straying from strict religious interpretations....

    A day after former Cypriot President Vassilou was found to be among many elite Cypriot (politicians and businessmen) who had loans written-off by the major (now insolvent) banks; it appears the rot is far fouler than expected. In a somewhat stunning (or purely coincidental) revelation, ENETEnglish reports that Cypriot newspaper Haravgi claims that current President Nicos Anastasiades' family businesses transferred 'dozens of millions' from their Laiki Bank accounts to London just a week before the devastating depositor haircuts were unleashed upon his people. Of course, the denials are loud and Anastasiades has demanded an investigation into the claims; we are...
