The survey results cover the 12-month period ending June 30, 2015, and covers loans totaling $5.1 trillion, or about 94 percent of all loans in the federal banking system, according to the OCC.The survey found that due to the easing underwriting standards, the level of credit risk that came with the loans had increased significantly. A significant share of commercial and real estate loan products reflected increased risk from 2014, according to the OCC—and examiners expect both portfolios to see increased levels of risk over the next 12 months.“We are seeing trends very similar to those that examiners reported just prior to the most recent financial crisis,” said Jennifer C. Kelly, Senior Deputy Comptroller and Chief National Bank Examiner. “With credit risk on the rise, OCC examiners will remain focused on evaluating new loan originations to assess banks’ and federal savings associations’ efforts to maintain prudent underwriting standards and practices through this stage of the credit cycle.”Seven categories were included when calculating underwriting standards for retail products: Affordable housing, conventional home equity, credit cards, direct consumer lending, high loan-to-value home equity, indirect consumer lending, and residential first mortgages. From 2014 to 2015, the percentage of banks surveyed that eased their underwriting standards across the seven retail products categories jumped from 22 percent to 27 percent (the highest level since 2006) while the share of banks that tightened underwriting standards tumbled from 10 percent in 2014 to1 percent in 2015, according to the OCC.In residential real estate lending, the share of banks that eased underwriting standards rose from 10 percent in 2014 up to13 percent in 2015, while the share that tightened underwriting standards plummeted from 20 percent in 2014 to 6 percent in 2015.Click here to view the OCC’s complete survey.

ZAIN BHATTI To the Editor: I am writing this letter to highlight Bayonne parking laws regarding commercial vehicle parking. The law states that all commercial vehicles can park only at designated parking lots after successfully buying a day/night ($75/ $35) permit from the city of Bayonne. Commercial vehicles can be parked on the street for up to three hours. If one parks a commercial vehicle on the street for more than three hours, then the Bayonne Parking Authority issues a ticket. If one parks a commercial vehicle on the street overnight then the Bayonne Police Department issues a ticket.I am a Bayonne resident and drive a TLC- Car in NYC. I have been living in Bayonne for the past five years. I live on West 33rd Street (deadend) and the nearest designated lot, where I can park with a permit, is on 33rd Street between Broadway and Ave E. Every time I do on-the-street parking, I am risking getting a ticket because what if I forget to move my car before the three- hour period ends.I’d be happy to get a parking permit, but walking from my house to the designated parking lot just doesn’t make sense. I think I should not be required to walk that far every time I need access to my car. This is the only vehicle I have, and I also use this vehicle to perform my noncommercial duties such as getting groceries or going to my other job (which is in Bayonne).The City of Bayonne issues parking permits to nonresidents who work in Bayonne, and the fee for that is $150 annually, and they get to park on the street. As a resident of Bayonne, I am required to get a permit, which would be $1,320 annually ($110 monthly for day and night) and then I can only park at designated lots.Every time I visit my family in downtown, I have to move my car every three hours in order to avoid a ticket. So far I have spoken to the City Clerk’s office, the Parking Supervisor Linda from the Bayonne Parking Authority, Deputy Chief Nevins from Bayonne Police Department, and Councilman Gary Le Pelusa. I have contacted the mayor’s office, and the front desk lady told me to come in on June 6.I have emailed the mayor’s office, and I am still waiting for someone to get back to me. I know the laws exist, and one should obey them but as a resident I don’t think I should be charged $1,320 annually and walk three to four avenues every time I need my car. I think it’s unfair when I am required to only park at a designated lot after getting a paid permit, whereas a large family can get an on-street parking permit for every single car in the household. Right now I keep on moving my car every three hours in order to avoid a ticket from city. I believe the city will find a possible solution as soon as possible and I can only hope for the best.

THE third leg of the Dr Cheddi Jagan Memorial Cycle Road Race is scheduled for Sunday on the Essequibo Coast, beginning at 07:30hrs from Supenaam.According to race organiser Hassan Mohamed, the third leg (which was rescheduled from last Sunday), after wheeling off from Supenaam, the competitors will proceed to Charity before turning back to finish at Suddie.Mohamed explained that the rescheduling of the event was because of the fact that the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) which was founded by Dr Jagan had organised a Memorial Walk in honour of the party’s late leader and founder as well as a former President of Guyana.The 20th annual event which is eagerly anticipated by local wheelsmen saw Shaquille Agard win the first leg, which was staged along the Corentyne Coast, Berbice, on March 5, in a time of two hours 6 minutes and 54 seconds.The other top positions were occupied by Alonzo Ambrose, Hamza Eastman, Paul DeNobrega, Orville Hinds and Michael Anthony respectively.Junior Niles won the veterans’ category in that leg while Curtis Dey won the junior category and Shane Bourne the mountain bike category.Jamal John won the second leg, which was staged on the West Demerara two Sundays ago, in a winning time of one hour 54 minutes 34 seconds for the 50-mile leg. Anthony settled for second, Ambrose, Christopher Griffith, Dey and Mark Harris were the other top four finishers in that order.Dey was the first junior to cross the finish line while Niles won the veterans category and Shane Bourne the mountain bike category.
He spoke briefly Tuesday, thanking family and friends for their support and then offering an apology. “I am very sorry to everyone for any pain and suffering you’ve endured. My hopes and prayers are to Mr. Mendoza and his family that they don’t suffer anymore as a result of this ordeal,” he said. At the trial, Mendoza testified he could not see who attacked him in the dimly lighted parking lot. The assailant was dressed in black from head to toe and had a hood cinched up so only the eyes were visible. Mendoza said he was convinced Cozad wanted to kill him. “Even though he wasn’t convicted of it, his intentions were clear,” Mendoza said, fighting tears. “I’ll never forget that. I’ve spent long nights since then waking up in a cold sweat, having nightmares, thinking I was going through that again.” ETC.: Pitt basketball player Levance Fields will spend nine months on probation in a special program for first-time offenders to settle criminal charges stemming from a scuffle with police, his attorney said.

From news services Former Northern Colorado backup punter Mitch Cozad was sentenced to seven years in prison Tuesday in Greeley, Colo., for stabbing a rival in what prosecutors said was a brutal attempt to take over the starter’s role. Prosecutors said Cozad ambushed starting punter Rafael Mendoza on the night of Sept. 11, 2006. Mendoza was left with a deep gash in his kicking leg but later returned to the team.

The 22-year-old Cozad, of Wheatland, Wyo., faced up to 16 years in prison on the assault conviction.

(AP Photo/Peter Dejong)RODEZ, France — Fabio Aru was dropped in the last 500 meters of Stage 14 of the Tour de France won by Michael Matthews and relinquished the yellow jersey to Chris Froome on Saturday.Aru lost touch with the leaders in the final short, sharp ascent of the Cote de Saint Pierre in the town of Rodez and crossed the line 25 seconds behind Matthews.ADVERTISEMENT Froome said his teammates played an essential role in keeping him at the front, allowing him to pounce on the final climb while Aru was stuck.In the last frenzied dash, Froome said teammate Michal Kwiatowski was urging him on over their radio system, yelling: “Froomey, go, go, go! There are gaps everywhere!”Froome remained wary, because the top five were still very close. He said he’d always expected this Tour to be very open, with its atypical route over all five of France’s mountain ranges, a prediction that is coming true, with just 29 seconds separating the top four.“Everyone is fighting for every second they can get,” Froome said. “The time I made up today could be very vital.”Matthews, who beat Olympic champion Greg Van Avermaet in the sprint to claim his second stage win at the Tour, said he’d targeted the stage win all year, and trained specifically for the last climb.The Australian rider also eyed this stage when the Tour last visited Rodez in 2015. But he was riding injured that year, with four broken ribs. He said he planned to celebrate the stage victory with champagne.It was the second consecutive win for the Sunweb team, after Warren Barguil’s victory on Friday, Bastille Day.Matthews described his emotions crossing the line as “disbelief.”He was so assured of victory that he sat up at the end and cruised over the line.“I’ve been dreaming of winning like that since I started cycling,” he said. “I could sit up and enjoy the win in the Tour de France.” View comments Hotel says PH coach apologized for ‘kikiam for breakfast’ claim Venus Williams falls short of 6th Wimbledon title at age 37 Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss PLAY LIST 02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games LATEST STORIES Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. “I need to say thank you to my teammates who rode at the front in the final 10 kilometers,” he said. “In the final climb we made a big difference on other favorites.
