Kaitlyn Bristowe, Artem Question Carrie Ann’s ‘DWTS’ Judging

first_imgBristowe added that she just wants to know more about the intentions behind Inaba’s commentary.“I would love to have her on the podcast, ask her a few questions. I don’t know!” the “Off the Vine” podcast host explained. “It’s always reassuring to talk to other people and have them asking those same questions because we come back and we’re like, ‘Huh?’ We’re good at accepting constructive criticism. We’re like, ‘OK, great, now let’s apply it. Thank you for the wonderful feedback.’ With this one, it’s like, ‘Huh? OK?’”Bristowe noted that the judge was also tough on season 15 Bachelorette Hannah Brown, who went on to win the mirrorball trophy in 2019.- Advertisement – Kaitlyn Bristowe and Artem Chigvintsev Question Carrie Ann Inaba Dancing With The Stars DWTS JudgingKaitlyn Bristowe and Artem Chigvintsev ABC/Kelsey McNealJudging for the wrong reasons? Kaitlyn Bristowe and Artem Chigvintsev are questioning whether Carrie Ann Inaba’s criticism of their Dancing With the Stars performances is strictly about the dance floor.“At this point, it starts being a little personal,” the 38-year-old professional dancer told Entertainment Tonight during a joint interview with the 35-year-old former Bachelorette after the Monday, November 2, episode. “I feel it’s definitely, maybe not a different standard, but I feel like it’s different expectations. I don’t know. I’m watching back the dance itself, it’s like, ‘Oh, you can kick sharper!’ Well, I can say that about everybody who dances on the show today. I don’t know. It’s really odd.”Kaitlyn Bristowe and Artem Chigvintsev Question Carrie Ann Inaba Dancing With The Stars DWTS JudgingCarrie Ann Inaba arrives at night one of the Creative Arts Emmy Awards at the Microsoft Theater on September 14, 2019 in Los Angeles, California.

Is it coming from a place of, ‘I was hard on Hannah and you’re another Bachelor girl?’” she asked. “Where is it coming from and how are we supposed to take it and bring it into our next rehearsal? What do you want us to channel and use from it? It’s very hard to understand that.”Kaitlyn Bristowe and Artem Chigvintsev Question Carrie Ann Inaba Dancing With The Stars DWTS JudgingArtem Chigvintsev and Kaitlyn Bristowe perform on ‘Dancing With The Stars.’ ABC/Eric McCandlessBristowe, who received an eight from Inaba for her jive to “Don’t Stop Me Now” by Queen, added that judges Derek Hough and Bruno Tonioli give more helpful feedback.- Advertisement – “Derek says things and I’m like, ‘Great! Oh my gosh, I could work on that. Let’s use that next time.’ Same with Bruno,” she said. “And when Carrie says things, I’m like, ‘What do you want us to do with that?’”During Monday’s episode, Bristowe and Chigvintsev escaped the bottom two again despite Inaba arguing that the reality TV personality performed a “lift” with Chigvintsev vs. doing her own jump during her jive. (Chrishell Stause was ultimately eliminated over Skai Jackson.) On the October 26 episode of the ABC show, Inaba suggested that Bristowe “gave up” and lost her “spirit” during her Halloween paso doble.“At this point right now, we just feel like we’re never going to make her happy. It feels really discouraging, in a sense, to come back next week,” Chigvintsev concluded after Monday’s episode. “I was literally wanting to have earmuffs and put it on top of [Kaitlyn’s] head.”Dancing With the Stars airs on ABC Mondays at 8 p.m. ET.Listen to Watch With Us to hear more about your favorite shows and for the latest TV news!last_img read more

Raja end 15-yr wait for CAF title despite defeat

first_img0Shares0000Spaniard Juan Carlos Garrido made history Sunday by becoming the first coach to win the CAF Confederation Cup with two clubs © AFP / ISSOUF SANOGOJOHANNESBURG, South Africa, Dec 3 – Moroccan club Raja Casablanca ended a 15-year wait for an African trophy by winning the CAF Confederation Cup in the Democratic Republic of Congo Sunday despite a 3-1 second-leg loss to V Club.Raja, who won the last edition of the CAF Cup in 2003, beat V Club 3-0 in the first leg in Casablanca last Sunday and triumphed 4-3 on aggregate in the two-leg title decider. It was the sixth CAF title for the Moroccans, who have also won the Champions League three times and the Super Cup once.Abdelilah Hafidi put Raja ahead after 21 minutes on a synthetic pitch saturated by pre-match rain at the 80,000-seat Stade des Martyrs in Kinshasa.The goal left V Club, whose only CAF title came 45 years ago, needing to score five to win the second-tier African club competition.Jean-Marc Makusu, who started after recovering from a first-leg injury, levelled on the night by slamming a free-kick high into the net during first-half stoppage time.Raja appeared to be cruising toward overall victory until the Congolese scored twice within three minutes midway through the second half.Substitute Mukoko Batezadio fired into the net after a goalmouth scramble on 71 minutes and Fabrice Ngoma converted a cross soon after to raise hopes of a sensational comeback.But Raja stood firm and there were no further clearcut scoring chances for the Congolese, leaving them with an unwanted record of losing three of four CAF finals they reached.Spain-born Raja handler Juan Carlos Garrido became the first coach to win the African equivalent of the UEFA Europa League with two clubs.He guided Al Ahly of Egypt to a dramatic victory in the 2014 final with the decisive goal against Sewe San Pedro of the Ivory Coast coming after 96 minutes in Cairo.Victory for Raja also confirmed the dominance of north African clubs in the Confederation Cup, which replaced the African Cup Winners Cup and CAF Cup competitions in 2004.They are the fourth Moroccan club to lift the trophy after FAR Rabat (2005), FUS Rabat (2010) and Moghreb Fes (2011) and the 10th north African winners in 15 finals.V Club, who won at home and drew away against Raja in the group stage, had hoped to emulate compatriots and arch domestic rivals TP Mazembe, winners of the 2016 and 2017 finals.However, the odds were stacked against them as only Mouloudia Alger of Algeria had overcome a three-goal first-leg deficit in 108 previous home-and-away CAF club finals.Raja will start defending the title on December 16 with a round-of-32 home fixture in the 2018/2019 edition against Silver Strikers of Malawi or Cercle Mberi Sportif of Gabon.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Fed Governor Suggests Separate Lending Rules for Community Banks

first_imgFed Governor Suggests Separate Lending Rules for Community Banks Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Basel Accords Credit Unions Federal Reserve Investors Lenders & Servicers Processing Regulation Service Providers 2012-11-09 Krista Franks Brock While admitting that creating mortgage lending regulations that prevent abuse without over-burdening community banks is “”challenging,”” “”Federal Reserve””:http://www.federalreserve.gov/default.htm governor “”Elizabeth A. Duke””:http://www.federalreserve.gov/aboutthefed/bios/board/duke.htm suggested Friday that policymakers “”abandon efforts for a one-size-fits-all approach.””[IMAGE]Speaking before the “”Community Bankers Symposium””:http://www.chicagofed.org/webpages/events/2012/community_bankers_symposium.cfm in Chicago, Duke said the Federal Reserve has received a large volume of comments from community banks expressing concern over the proposed regulatory capital requirements. Duke first let community bankers know the federal regulatory agencies agreed to postpone the requirements that were set to go into effect at the start of next year. “”It’s still far too early in the process to know where we and the other agencies are going to come out on these and other issues,”” Duke stated. However, she acknowledged the importance of community banking in the mortgage lending market and stated that if [COLUMN_BREAK]regulations are complicated and expensive enough to deter “”significant numbers”” of community banks from the market, “”it should raise red flags and spur policymakers to reassess.”” With a growing market share, community banks and credit unions originated about 25 percent of mortgage loans in 2011, according to Duke. While community banks do tend to engage in some practices that “”share[s] some characteristics with subprime lending,”” according to Duke, they do so without apparent negative impacts on the market or their own businesses. “”Community bankers argue that they never engaged in the sort of lending practices that led to the financial crisis,”” Duke stated. “”And I think that in most cases, the evidence supports their claims.””Fed data shows community banks are largely correct in their assertions. During the financial crisis, serious delinquency rates for fixed-rate, subprime loans neared 22 percent, and serious delinquencies for variable-rate, subprime loans neared 46 percent. However, community banks did not experience serious delinquency rates of more than about 4 percent. Despite the fact that community banks do not appear to have contributed much to the financial crisis, they may bear the brunt of the burden as the government attempts to prevent a repeat of the conditions that led to the crisis. “”[M]any community banks simply do not have the resources to appropriately comply with all of the pending regulatory changes pertaining to mortgage lending,”” Duke said. “”Thus, the cost of solving the problem falls disproportionately on them.”” November 9, 2012 436 Views center_img in Government, Origination Sharelast_img read more
