Broadway ticketbuying now easier for fans not resellers

first_imgMaking it fairThose kinds of prices make Ayodele Williams, 44, of Philadelphia, outraged. She and her sister were in New York last week to see a performance of Hamilton, and they had tickets they consider themselves lucky to have snagged at face value last fall.“It’s become so expensive and rigged,” Williams said. “If you have some kind of system or algorithm that allows you to buy all these tickets, you’re going to get them and then all you’re doing is re-selling. You’re not doing it for the love of the show really. You’re doing it for the love of the money.”David Marcus, executive vice-president for Ticketmaster, said that was the point of the registration system: to give fans a better experience.“It’s intended to make the initial distribution fairer,” he said, to fight against a system where brokers are the first ones out of the gate for tickets.Re-sale has a role, he said, but it shouldn’t be the oversize one it’s playing.He said so far the program has been working. Of the more than a million tickets distributed through Verified Fan since it began beta testing late last year, less than 5 per cent have gone onto the secondary re-sale market. Getting more useVerified Fan has been used for concert sales for artists such as Ed Sheeran and Harry Styles, and is now showing up for Broadway sales. Springsteen on Broadway, running from Oct. 3 to Nov. 26, is using the system, as is another show expected to be a hot prospect, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, opening next spring.The producers of the immensely popular Hamilton announced Tuesday that a new block of tickets for the show would go on sale through Verified Fan. That show has been the subject of a huge re-sale market, with tickets going for hundreds of dollars if not more than the face values.Premium seats for Hamilton run as high as $849 US, with prices on the secondary ticket markets more than double that amount. While Hamilton has put aside a few digital lottery seats for $10, the average ticket last week went for $282.65.A theatre goer purchases a ticket to the Broadway show Hamilton in New York.

Alberta judge named to top court – but federal NDP leader Singh

first_img(Alberta justice Sheilah Martin was named to the Supreme Court by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau)The Canadian Press OTTAWA – NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh says the requirement that Supreme Court judges be functionally bilingual should be waived in the case of Indigenous candidates for appointment to the country’s top court.Singh says his party supports bilingual Supreme Court judges but he agrees with some Indigenous leaders who’ve argued that the language requirement creates hurdles for Indigenous appointees.He says there needs to be an understanding of the unique historical situation Indigenous communities have faced as well as a recognition of Indigenous languages.Sen. Murray Sinclair, the former chairman of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and Assembly of First Nations grand chief Perry Bellegarde say an Indigenous appointment to the top court is long overdue and should be a top priority for the Liberal government.Justice Minister Jody Wilson Raybould, who is Indigenous herself, says there is a substantial number of Indigenous jurists across the country and she suspects many will apply for positions on the court in the future.Earlier today, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau appointed Alberta-based judge Sheilah Martin to the Supreme Court.Here are some of the cases Martin has worked on.Thomas Sophonow Inquiry _ After working as a professor and dean of the University of Calgary’s law school, Martin practiced criminal and constitutional law. In 2000, she testified as an expert witness in the Thomas Sophonow inquiry about the amount of compensation he should get for his wrongful murder conviction. Sophonow was tried three times and spent nearly four years in prison for the 1981 killing of 16-year-old Barbara Stoppel in Winnipeg. The Manitoba government awarded him $2.6 million.Pro Bono Work _ Martin also acted pro bono for the Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund (LEAF) and the Alberta Association of Sexual Assault Centres in cases before the Supreme Court. In 2002, she represented LEAF as an intervener in the case of Ivon Shearing, the leader of a religious sect in British Columbia. He had been found guilty of sexually abusing several teenage girls. The high court upheld most of the convictions but granted a retrial in the case of one girl.Dustin Paxton Trial _ In 2012, seven years after she was appointed to the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta, Martin convicted Dustin Paxton of torturing and starving his roommate before dropping him off near death at a hospital. She also declared Paxton a dangerous offender. “I simply cannot find on the evidence before me that there is a reasonable expectation, based on more than a hope, that the public will be protected by a long-term supervision order or by anything less than an indeterminate sentence,” she wrote in her decision. “An indeterminate sentence places the responsibility for an offender’s rehabilitation and future where it properly belongs: in Mr. Paxton’s own hands.”Physician-Assisted Suicide _ In 2016, Martin granted what is believed to be the first court approval for a physician-assisted suicide in Canada. The federal government was still working on its new law when Martin ruled the woman had met the criteria set out by the Supreme Court and there was no need to prolong her suffering. The woman, known as Ms. S., was in the final stages of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. “I am satisfied that Ms. S. fully and freely consents to the termination of her life,” wrote Martin. “Her application is not made in a moment of weakness and her desire for physician-assisted death is long-standing.”Ordered New Trial _ That same year, Martin reviewed the acquittal of a 16-year-old boy accused of raping a 13-year-old girl in a park. At trial, provincial court judge Pat McIlhargey questioned why the girl “did not scream, she did not run for help” or confide in a friend. Martin ordered a new trial, saying McIlhargey had allowed “unexplained myths and stereotypes to enter his assessment of the complainant’s credibility.”Cindy Gladue _ Martin, appointed to the Alberta Court of Appeal in June of 2016, was on the panel that unanimously ordered a new trial in the case of Bradley Barton, an Ontario truck driver acquitted of first-degree murder in the death of Cindy Gladue. The Indigenous sex-trade worker was found dead in an Edmonton motel room. She bled to death after a night of what Barton called consensual, rough sex. The Appeal Court ruled in 2017 that the trial judge made serious errors, including how he charged the jury with the law of sexual assault relating to consent.“Despite our society’s recognition of individual autonomy and equality, there still remains an undeniable need for judges to ensure that the criminal law is not tainted by pernicious and unfair assumptions, whether about women, Aboriginal people, or sex-trade workers,” said the decision.last_img read more

Frank Ross Elementary to get new school playground

first_imgDAWSON CREEK, B.C. — Premier John Horgan announced today that 51 schools across the province, including Frank Ross Elementary in Dawson Creek – will get new playgrounds in September as part of a new playground fund that will take fundraising pressure off of parents.Horgan said that the funding is part of a new, ongoing Playground Equipment Program that will provide up to $5 million each year to school districts to buy new or replacement playground equipment. This year, 26 schools are receiving $90,000 for a standard playground, and 25 schools are receiving $105,000 for a universally accessible playground. School Disitrct 59 will be getting $90,000 for the construction of the new playground.“All students deserve quality, safe and accessible playgrounds at school, regardless of how much their parents can fundraise,” said Horgan. “That’s why we’re lifting the burden off of parents by investing $5 million today, and every year moving forward, to build playgrounds where they are needed most.”The government said that generally, school parent advisory councils have to fundraise large sums of money for new and replacement playground equipment. The Ministry said that districts applied for the funding in April, with the new playgrounds being funded based on areas with the greatest need. Priority is given to schools where there is currently no playground, and then to schools where the existing playground is aging. Districts that did not receive funding this year will receive funding next year, if they apply for it.“I’ve heard from parents that they need relief from fundraising tens of thousands of dollars for playground equipment – that’s a lot of bake sales and bottle drives for today’s busy parents,” said Education Minister Rob Fleming. “Today, we’re delivering this fund to help parents, and provide access to communities that don’t have the fundraising capacity to buy the play equipment students need.”last_img read more

Oil slips to under US100 remains flat for week in face of

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Workers tend to a well head at an Encana fracking gas well outside Rifle, in western Colorado March 29, 2013. THE CANADIAN PRESS/AP, Brennan Linsley The price of oil slipped Friday to just under US$100 a barrel, leaving crude nearly flat for the week.Benchmark West Texas Intermediate crude for June delivery fell 27 cents to close at US$99.99 on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract ended last week at $99.76.Brent crude, a benchmark for international varieties used by many U.S. refineries, declined 15 cents to close at US$107.89 in London.Crude supplies in the U.S. fell this week, which surprised traders and gave some support to prices. But supplies remain ample and refineries are pumping out enough fuel to meet demand. That suggests refineries won’t need to quickly draw down supplies in the coming weeks.Overseas demand for crude appears muted and supplies are plentiful, but worries over the political turmoil in Ukraine and continued disruption of oil exports from Libya have kept Brent prices up.“Libya’s two most important oil terminals, Ras Lanuf and Es Sider, will remain shut for the foreseeable future, which is likely to continue to severely hamper the supply of oil,” said analysts at Commerzbank in Frankfurt in a note to clients.Meanwhile, pro-Russian insurgents in eastern Ukraine are planning a referendum on independence over the weekend, in apparent defiance of a call by Russian President Vladimir Putin to put off the vote.Traders worry Russian energy exports could be interrupted if further instability in Ukraine results in stronger western sanctions against Russia.In other energy futures trading on the Nymex, wholesale gasoline fell 0.9 of a cent to close at US$2.896 a U.S. gallon (3.79 litres), heating oil fell 1.3 cents to close at US$2.907 a gallon and natural gas fell 4.1 cents to close at US$4.531 per 1,000 cubic feet.(TSX:ECA), (TSX:IMO), (TSX:SU), (TSX:HSE), (NYSE:BP), (NYSE:COP), (NYSE:XOM), (NYSE:CVX), (TSX:CNQ), (TSX:TLM), (TSX:COS), (TSX:CVE) by The Associated Press Posted May 9, 2014 3:38 pm MDT Oil slips to under US$100, remains flat for week in face of ample supplies read more

Prof to colead team evaluating fullday kindergarten

Mary-Louise VanderleeA Brock professor has been appointed a principal investigator of the research team that will be assessing the implementation of Ontario’s new full-day kindergarten program.Mary-Louise Vanderlee, associate professor in the Faculty of Education, and Ray DeV Peters, professor emeritus of Psychology at Queen’s University, will co-lead the investigation.Their work is part of a contract between the Ontario Ministry of Education and the Social Program Evaluation Group at Queen’s. The nine-member research team will evaluate the new program during its first two years of implementation.“With the research capabilities this team brings together, we are certain to advance our understanding of the field of early childhood education in this province,” Vanderlee said.The program evaluation will identify successes and challenges associated with the implementation of full-day kindergarten, then provide feedback to make the transition easier for students, parents, teachers, administrators and communities.“I am thrilled that Dr. Vanderlee’s work in early childhood education has been recognized in this way, as it typifies the high esteem in which our scholars are held,” said Fiona Blaikie, Dean, Faculty of Education. “Our researchers are making significant contributions to the development of education systems in Ontario and beyond.”About 35,000 four- and five-year olds in nearly 600 schools across the province are in full-day kindergarten this year.The program provides a full day of learning five days a week, with a teacher and early childhood educator working together in the classroom. Based on parent demand, integrated before- and after-school programs are available for a fee at some schools. The program is being phased in over five years. read more

allmineral to improve ore dressing at Spanish tungsten mine

first_imgThe operators of La Parrilla tungsten and tin mine in southwest Spain (Extremadura region) has entrusted the processing of extracted ore to the German specialist in order to achieve ambitious production targets. Two alljig® fines jigs from allmineral will make a significant contribution towards doubling annual output in the to 5,000 t/y over the coming years. Operator W Resources (WRES) is also anticipating an increase in product quality as a result of this superior processing technology.La Parrilla mine near the Portuguese border is one of five sites on the Iberian Peninsula mined by WRES. The largest known tungsten deposits in the western world that can be mined cost-effectively are located some 300 km southwest of Madrid. By intensifying and optimising its ore mining operations in Extremadura the British mining company is looking to surpass the annual output of what is currently the world’s largest tungsten mine at Núi Pháo Masan, by 2020, allmineral reports. Around 90% of the world’s production of tungsten goes towards making tungsten steel.The two alljig® fines jigs are at the core of the new plant for efficient raw material extraction at La Parrilla. Thanks to the new technology the mine is aiming for a metal recovery of at least 90% from the extracted ore minerals. The emphasis is on scheelite, from which tungsten is recovered by flotation and then enriched into concentrates with more than 65% tungstate. The mine also extracts cassiterite, the world’s most significant tin ore.With a throughput of 350 t/h the alljig® jigs will in future provide for a reliable and adaptable separation, concentration and cleaning of the ore before milling (2 to 10 mm grain size). The air-pulsed twin machines are physically stable in operation, allowing an optimum jigging stroke with a minimum of energy consumption. The feed material is first loosened and fluidised by pulsating water, forming layers of grains according to their density and subsequently separating the heavy material from the stratified material bed. The jigging motion used to separate the particles is wear-free and induced by air, allowing the stroke motion (frequency, amplitude and shape) to be adjusted within a wide range of operating parameters.Ore mines are just one area of application for the alljig® jigging machines, which are easy to operate and maintain. These energy-saving systems are capable of reliably and efficiently sorting primary and secondary raw and waste materials of different particle density: gravel, coal, ore, slag, sand, rubble, and various recycling materials. More than 500 alljig® jigging machines are in operation worldwide, installed over almost 30 years.last_img read more

Google Knows You Hate Chrome Autoplay Videos

first_imgStay on target 50 Attorneys General Launch Bipartisan Probe Into GoogleYouTube Fined $170M For Alleged Child Privacy Law Violation When Chrome added the “Mute tab” option nearly two years ago, it was like manna from heaven. Now, Google is expanding the function to entire webpages.Next month’s Chrome 63 version includes the ability to completely disable audio for individual sites, even between browsing session.The development team last month teased the setting (pictured), which will be accessible via the Page Info menu.“One of the most frequent user concerns is unexpected media playback, which can use data, consume power, and make unwanted noise while browsing,” software engineer Mounir Lamouri wrote in a blog announcement.Google listened, and starting in Chrome 64 (slated for release in January), autoplay will be allowed only when a video is muted or doesn’t include audio, or when a user has “indicated an interest in the media.”That is, if you’ve added the site to your mobile Home Screen on Android devices, frequently play content on the desktop page, or have “tapped or clicked somewhere on the site during the browsing session.”“Chrome will be making autoplay more consistent with user expectations and will give users more control over audio,” Lamouri said. “These changes will also unify desktop and mobile Web behavior, making Web media development more predictable across platforms and browsers.”A sort of torture device (my skin crawls at the thought of those videos that chase you down the page as you scroll), autoplay should, according to Google, be used sparingly.“Autoplay can be a powerful engagement tool, but it can also annoy users if undesired sound is played or they perceive unnecessary resource usage (e.g. data, battery) as the result,” based on the company’s developer recommendationsOther suggestions I fully endorse: Start with muted content and let the user unmute, use the browser’s native controls for video and audio playback, and ensure your website functions properly when autoplay is not allowed.Google is also readying a built-in Chrome adblocker, set to launch early next year.

State OKs Linc Energys Tyonek Coal Exploration Plan

first_imgThe state has given the OK to a plan by Linc Energy to explore for coal in the Tyonek area. Last month, Linc submitted an application to drill at least five exploratory wells in an area about seven miles from Tyonek, on the West side of Cook Inlet.Download Audio Russel Kirkham is the state’s coal regulatory program manager, says the application is to dril five exploratoin holes for coal seams within the Tyonek,and Beluga area. “It doesn’t allow any other activity except for that work.  It is for a  two year period, and after that two year period, Linc Energy can apply for another application to do additional drilling if they need to.”Kirkham says the state is asking for a reclamation bond of more than 95 thousand dollars for cleanup of the exploration activities. He says the exploration permit is specific as to what types of equipment Linc Energy is allowed to use.  “(If) they want to change their equipment, they would have to come back to the state to have it approved and we would review that and make sure it is within the scope of the work.”Linc Energy specializes in coal to liquids technology. The underground liquification process is used to make synthetic gas, according to Paul Ludwing, Linc Energy’s general manager of stakeholder relations.   Ludwig says Linc Energy has licenses for more than 107 thousand acres of Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority land, issued in 2011.  The Tyonek/ Kenai coal is buried over 2, 500 feet deep and hosts seams 25 – 30 feet thick which are potentially suitable for coal to gas technology, Ludwig said in an email. The exploration  permit will allow Linc to drill cores samples of the coal seams, and to study the coal quality to make sure the coal is suitable for the process.  The Alaska Mental Health Trust owns both the surface and the subsurface rights in the exploration license area. If exploration is successfull, and if Linc is issued a mining permit, the Trust will set a royalty rate for the coal.last_img read more

India is unprepared for gathering teen sexual revolution

first_imgOne in four Indian women is married before 18, and 7.8 per cent of women aged 15 to 19 are pregnant or mothers, according to the latest available 2015-16 National Family Health Survey (NFHS)-4 data. While the percentage of women married before 18 decreased from 47.4 per cent in 2005-06 (NFHS-3), the use of contraceptives in married women aged 15-49 years dropped from 56.3 to 53.5 per cent. While 2.7 per cent of boys and eight per cent of girls reported their sexual debut before the age of 15 in 2005-06, the latest comparative data have not been released.Yet, social and policy barriers do not allow the sexual and reproductive needs of adolescents to be addressed because many of those who have sex are unmarried and below the age of consent, said Sunil Mehra, Executive Director of MAMTA, a Delhi-based non-profit, working on adolescent and reproductive health issues. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf As a result, 33.6 per cent of India’s population is born of adolescent pregnancies. India has 253 million adolescents, but the country is not doing enough to ensure that they become productive adults. That process begins with making more adolescents familiar with sexuality, but the opposite is happening.Spurred by concerns of HIV-AIDS, the government in association with UN agencies introduced an adolescence-education programme (AEP) in 2005. Adolescent health featured for the first time as a national programme which included health clinics that offered preventive, promotive, curative and referral services for adolescents and youth. Within two years of inception, the AEP was banned in 12 states. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveHowever, even where the programme is being implemented, the quality of implementation is open to question, she said. “Given that sexuality education addresses long-held attitudes and cultural or moral norms, effective implementation is key to making sure young people get accurate, non-judgmental information,” said Srivastava.Nationally, while the three national health surveys (1992-93, 1998-99, 2005-06) reported an almost equal proportion (59.1, 59.8 and 58.2 per cent) of pregnant and adolescent mothers, there was a steady increase in the first pregnancy among adolescents (11.7, 12.4 and 14.4 per cent). “Early marriage and low contraceptive use are the reasons behind this trend,” said a 2015 review in Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research. What is clear, said experts, is that Indian adolescents are more sexually active than ever – yet, “services for unmarried adolescents are non-existent in India”, said Mehra. Reproductive health services include counselling on menstrual disorders, menstrual hygiene, use of sanitary napkins, use of contraceptives, sexual concerns, sexual abuse and gender violence. While there has been a recent uptake in activities around menstrual hygiene and iron folic supplements through schools and immunisation through anganwadi (day care centre) workers, sexual and reproductive health is “completely neglected”, Mehra said. In October 2014, the government started the Rashtriya Kishor Swasthya Karyakram (RKSK) or National Adolescent Health Programme, which, like adolescent-friendly health clinics (AFHCs), made village health clinics sensitive to adolescent needs. Yet, independent studies reveal widespread ignorance. No more than five per cent of young men and eight per cent of young women in the studied villages were aware of AFHCs, said a 2014 study conducted by the Population Council in Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Jharkhand. The main reason 82-90 per cent why adolescents did not seek help was because they thought their problems were not serious enough; the second-most common reason was because they were too embarrassed, the study found.However, with RKSK, the effort is now to engage adolescents through peer educators who would speak about various life skills,while sensitising ASHAs, auxiliary nurse midwives, anganwadi workers, and medical officers to offer “non-judgemental services”, said Indrani Banerjee Bhattacharyya, Assistant Director, Quality Assurance, Child in Need Institute. In the age group of 15-19, of those who had sexual intercourse, 0.07 of girls and 0.01 per cent of boys were found to be HIV positive, according to the 2005-06 National Family Health Survey. It is obvious, said experts, that contraceptives are not adequately available. And among contraceptives, the only real option is a condom, “yet, it means girls have to rely on their male partners for protection which is not ideal,” said Vivek Malhotra, Director, Population Health Services (India). “Emergency contraceptives as an alternative should be made affordable”, he added.last_img read more

Bengal Chamber signs MoU to boost startups in state

first_imgKolkata: The Bengal Chamber has signed a Memorandum-of-Understanding (MoU) with Infinity Group to boost the start-ups in the state.The Bengal Chamber has received 184 new applications for new start-ups across the state, out of which 24 have been chosen. The new start-ups would come up with assistance from the state government. Arnab Basu, chairperson, IT Committee, the Bengal Chamber on Thursday said that their role would be bridging the gap between the entrepreneurs and the government agencies to facilitate the new start-ups, which would create more employments in the state. He also said that new start-ups would hail from various fields including sustainable environment, healthcare and manufacturing.

The total number of tech start-ups in India is around 7,200-7,700 (2018) and the total number of the same in Bengal is between 216 to 286 approximately, with an average growth rate of 3%. The data also shows that Bengal has quietly jumped to its place among the desired states for start-ups and opened its gates to technology entrepreneurs, investors and fresh start-ups. “Japanese companies are seeing ample opportunities in the start-up sector in India and wish to venture and explore other Indian cities and markets. They are now coming to Bengal to initiate talks. The Chamber has made special connect with JETRO (Japan External Trade Organization) in facilitating B2B connects, especially in the realm of Technology,” Basu said. Indrajit Sen, president of the Bengal Chamber, said: “The Bengal Chamber’s Incubation centres, set up in association with the Bengal government through its nodal agency WEBEL and Bandhan Bank, will encourage entrepreneurship and facilitate deserving potential entrepreneurs get a platform to initiate start-ups, which would further contribute to the tech start-up movement in the state.”last_img read more

Neiman Health Policy Institute, physician-focused payment models (PFPMs) provide a compelling opportunity for radiologists to demonstrate and be rewarded for their unique contributions toward patient care. The report also said PFPMs may foster greater radiologist participation in advanced alternative payment models (APMs) under the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) of 2015. The study is published online in the Journal of the American College of Radiology (JACR). “MACRA will look to increasingly shift physicians into APMs that incentivize quality and value,” said Andrew Rosenkrantz, M.D., MPA, lead study author and a Neiman Institute affiliate research fellow. “PFPMs will provide a path for physician specialty societies to develop and propose new practice models that will allow a more diverse range of physician specialists to participate in alternative payment models.” MACRA describes APMs as new approaches to paying for medical care that incentivizes higher quality and value. MACRA incentivizes increasing participation in APMs by all physician specialties over the coming years. A fraction of APMs will meet criteria to be deemed an Advanced APM. Clinicians who are a Qualifying Professional in an APM will receive substantial benefits under MACRA, including an automatic 5 percent payment bonus regardless of their performance and savings within the APM, as well as a larger increase in fee schedule payment rates beginning in 2016. According to the report, existing APMs meeting the criteria to be Advanced APMs are most relevant to primary care physicians, with relatively limited opportunity at present for radiologist participation.PFPMs are APMs that target the quality and cost of physician services and must address a new issue or specialty compared with existing APMs. PFPMs are intended to foster a much more diverse range of PFPMs that encompass a wider range of specialties.“As PFPMs provide a compelling opportunity for radiologists to demonstrate and be rewarded for their unique contributions toward patient care, radiologists should embrace this new model and actively partner with other stakeholders, including health services researchers, in developing radiology-relevant PFPMs,” noted Bibb Allen Jr., M.D., FACR, chair of the Neiman Institute advisory board and past chair of the American College of Radiology Board of Chancellors.The PFPM Technical Advisory Committee (PTAC), comprised largely of primary care physicians and health policy experts, is a newly formed agency to review the proposed PFPMs and make recommendations regarding their adoption to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). PTAC is not required to consult with experts when reviewing specialist-proposed new PFPMs.Read the full report here.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Feature | Radiology Business | July 23, 2019 | Greg Freiherr Liars in Radiology Beware!

Agency posts thousands of complaints against banks others

first_img 3 international destinations to visit in 2019 Arizona families, Arizona farms: providing the local community with responsibly produced dairy FILE – In this Sept. 12, 2013 file photo, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) Director Richard Cordray testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington. The CFPB on Thursday, June 25, 2015 is releasing the first batch of its highly awaited database of consumer complaints filed against local banks, credit card and mortgage companies. The 7,700 public narratives, collected starting in March 2015, are only a fraction of the 627,000 complaints the bureau has fielded since its inauguration in 2011. (AP Photo/Manuel Balce Ceneta, File) The public posting of the database is a sharp break from the traditional practices of other financial regulators. How and whether the data gets used, whether by fellow regulators, plaintiff’s attorneys or people shopping looking for a new bank, won’t become apparent for a while.For now, many people making complaints to the CFPB are choosing to share them. According to the Bureau, more than half of the people who’ve filed complaints since March chose to make them public.The individual grievances and the public database were created despite repeated protests from the financial services industry.The American Bankers Association, which has been against the database since the bureau proposed it last year, said the database would be “a purveyor of at best unsubstantiated, and potentially false, information.”“Today’s public disclosure of unverified consumer complaint narratives doesn’t advance that goal and may threaten consumer privacy,” the organization said.Credit reporting giant Experian, which has just over 21,000 complaints in the Bureau’s overall database, argued that the complaints would likely contain “inaccurate, misleading, or even derogatory or offensive statements.” Four benefits of having a wireless security system Mesa family survives lightning strike to home Top Stories WASHINGTON (AP) — The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau released thousands of complaints Thursday from disgruntled customers of banks, credit card companies and other providers of financial services.The bureau posted a database of the grievances on its website over vehement protests from the financial industry. The database contains 7,700 complaints filed online by people who agreed to air their complaints publicly. Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall The CFPB offers a disclaimer that it does not investigate the substance of the complaints before posting them. Some postings come with spelling errors, some with gratuitous capitalization of words. The Bureau hopes the compilation of the grievances will point both it and the general public to the personal financial trouble spots of the day.The targets of the complaints vary widely, and include small debt collection companies as well as Wall Street giants. Among the complaints: U.S. Bank supposedly gave a Wisconsin parent’s young son a credit card with a $4,500 limit that he didn’t request, and a California couple reported finally catching up on mortgage payments to M&T bank, only to be told they were still a month in arrears.The database represents a small fraction of the 627,000 total complaints the bureau has received in the four years it’s been operating. The CFPB began offering the option of allowing people to publicly share their complaints in March.“We believe the disclosure of this information is one of the best tools government agencies can use to improve the operation of the marketplace,” said Richard Cordray, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s director, calling the narratives “a valued educational and shopping tool.” Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Sponsored Stories New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Consumer advocates supported the Bureau’s plan, praising the potential to lead researchers and regulators to newly emerging objectionable practices.In previous retail banking controversies, such as the practice of banks re-ordering daily debit card transactions to produce additional overdraft penalties, people complained for years before regulators took notice. Meanwhile, banks such as JPMorgan Chase were logging thousands of overdraft complaints each month, according to documents later produced in a class action lawsuit.The database can be found online at reported from New York.Copyright © The Associated Press.
