The Federal Reserve board of governors clarified its debit interchange rule this week stating that transaction-monitoring costs are included in the interchange fee standard.The clarification to Regulation II, which covers debit card interchange fees and routing, comes after the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia found in June that the rule needed further explanation.After the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act required an interchange fee cap, the Fed set the ceiling at 21 cents per transaction for card issuers with more than $10 billion in assets.The National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) challenged the Fed’s regulation governing the fee paid to card-issuing financial institutions when a debit transaction is made, saying the Fed’s ceiling is too high.However, CUNA and its financial services coalition partners make the case that it is too low and does not allow debit card issuers to cover their costs with a reasonable rate of return. continue reading » The Federal Reserve 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr

The Maumere Education Agency dismissed classroom teaching on Friday following the instructions for a two-week school closure by the East Nusa Tenggara administration.“My sibling and I have to study at home. I’m doing math, while my sibling learns how to read. Both of us are studying ‘manually’ without computer and internet,” he told The Jakarta Post on Saturday. Waelengga Catholic Elementary School Principal, Adrianus Panu said that the school assignments were given manually by the teachers to the students. Every morning, the teachers delivers the school assignments directly to hundreds if students.“The 14-day at-home learning policy has given us a huge challenge. We teachers also have to prepare the learning materials at home for our 290 students,” Adrianus said. Students in the inland areas of East Manggarai regency in East Nusa Tenggara have to study using books, paper and pens while their schools are closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic since they have no electricity, internet or computers.Among them are Andreas Mariano Makur and Yohanes Jubilian Dahu Ndolu, two students from Waelengga Catholic Elementary School. They have been working on their school assignments the old-fashioned way since Saturday. Separately, a teacher of Mok Catholic Elementary School in Komba district, Ursula Manggung, said she has been preparing study materials for her students in Mok and Nunur villages for the duration. With the help of her husband she too has to deliver the assignments directly to her students’ houses while also monitoring their learning progress.East Manggarai Cultural and Education Agency head Basilius Teto said the agency instructed schools to send their students home to follow a policy set by the central government to stop the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.He acknowledged the policy faced hindrances in the inland areas as some villages did not have access to electricity, let alone internet access, forcing the students and teachers to carry out the home learning the old-fashioned way.“Except for the ones who live in the city, most of the students are unable to do online study since they have no access to an internet network. Many of them don’t know how to operate computers and the internet either,” he said.Meanwhile, the coordinator of the national exam proctors for high schools in East Manggarai, Lukas Samba, said that the national exams for high school and vocational school students have been postponed from its original schedule on March 30.

MASON CITY — The Mason City School Board tonight will consider a recommendation to make an application for membership in the Northeast Iowa Conference. The high school’s athletics and activities director Barry Andersen for the last few months has been looking into the possibility of the school district leaving the Central Iowa Metro League. Andersen’s recommendation to the board says moving to the Northeast Iowa Conference would cut travel costs almost in half and hopefully would equalize competition for students. Andersen in a memo to the school board says it would also help with scheduling, and that the student socio-economic profile is similar in all schools.Five of the seven members of the Northeast Iowa Conference would have to approve the application. The NEIC’s current membership includes Waverly-Shell Rock, Decorah, Charles City, Crestwood, Waukon, Oelwein and New Hampton. The Mason City School Board meets tonight at 5:30 in the administration building.
