Sen. Elizabeth Warren accused Robinhood Markets Inc of having inadequate cash on hand to manage a trading surge and of hiding key information about consumers’ rights ahead of a House hearing Thursday with the company’s CEO. In a Feb. 2 letter, Warren had asked Robinhood to explain its decision to restrict trading in shares of GameStop Inc. and other companies amid a frenzy that pushed shares of the video-game retailer to extraordinary levels.“Robinhood promised to democratize trading, but hid information about its prerogative to change the rules by cutting off trades without notice — and about customers’ inability to access the courts if they believe they’ve been cheated — behind dozens of pages of legalese,” Warren said Wednesday in a statement accompanying the release of Robinhood’s response to her letter.Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat, asked Robinhood Chief Executive Vladimir Tenev to disclose whether the restrictions might have been influenced by talks with hedge fund investors or financial services partners, including Citadel Securities. She also sought assurances that Robinhood is meeting regulatory requirements and contractual obligations to retail customers.“While I hope Robinhood follows through on its statement that it is open to reviewing its use of forced arbitration, the SEC should ban these harmful and exploitative clauses outright,” Warren said Wednesday, adding that “the full extent of Robinhood’s ties to giant hedge funds and market makers” was still unclear. 5 3 Both Robinhood and Citadel have denied any coordination or wrongdoing. Newsletters The Gates divorce: Lessons for financial advisers Warren and some other lawmakers have joined retail investors behind the surge in GameStop shares in questioning whether Robinhood imposed the trading curbs in coordination with Citadel Securities, the market maker that is one of the trading platform’s biggest sources of revenue.Tenev and Citadel CEO Kenneth Griffin are scheduled to testify Thursday before the House Financial Services Committee. 2 For reprint and licensing requests for this article, click here,MOST READ 4 House panel unanimously passes SECURE 2.0 InvestCloud to acquire Advicent and NaviPlan planning software Why Tony Robbins, tax shelters and financial advisers don’t mix Financial advice goes viral on social media House committee poised to advance SECURE 2.0 retirement savings bill 1 Subscribe for original insights, commentary and analysis of the issues facing the financial advice community, from the InvestmentNews team.
Jason Merritt/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — One of Jennifer Aniston’s most notable roles has been as Rachel Green on the cult-favorite sitcom Friends. However, after a 10-year-run, the actress revealed that it was hard for the industry to see her as anything else, which resulted in her trying to distance herself from that image…and that proved to be tiring. “You just exhaust yourself,” Aniston admitted during The Hollywood Reporter‘s Drama Actress Roundtable.“I mean, I could not get Rachel Green off of my back for the life of me,” she continued. “I could not escape ‘Rachel from Friends,’ and it’s on all the time and you’re like, ‘Stop playing that f****** show!’” “The Good Girl was the first time I got to really shed whatever the Rachel character was, and to be able to disappear into someone who wasn’t that was such a relief to me,” the 51-year-old actress recalled. “But I remember the panic that set over me, thinking, ‘Oh God, I don’t know if I can do this. Maybe they’re right. Maybe everybody else is seeing something I’m not seeing, which is you are only that girl in the New York apartment with the purple walls.’”“I was almost doing it for myself just to see if I could do something other than that. And it was terrifying because you’re doing it in front of the world,” she confessed. “So, I just fought with myself and who I was in this industry forever, and it was constantly about trying to prove that I was more than that person.”Eventually, though, The Morning Show actress was able to lay her battle to rest. “There is such a freedom in getting older because you just stop giving a crap,” Aniston concluded with a laugh.By Danielle LongCopyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

artolympic/iStock/Thinkstock(HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif.) — A mysterious Jane Doe case in Southern California has been solved after 27 years thanks to a fingerprint match, officials said on Thursday.Andrea Kuiper has been identified as the 26-year-old woman who was struck and killed by two cars while crossing the Pacific Coast Highway in Huntington Beach, California, on April 1, 1990, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department said in a news release today.The Orange County Sheriff’s Department’s Coroner Division worked on the case for years.“We never forgot her and would regularly pull out her file to see if we could think of anything new to try,” Supervising Deputy Coroner Kelly Keyes said in the sheriff’s department’s statement. “The investigators at the Coroner’s Office never stopped trying to figure out who she was.”Then this year, the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System partnered with the FBI to more closely examine fingerprints of unidentified people, and on May 4, the FBI told the Orange County Sheriff’s Department’s Coroner Division that it had a hit, the sheriff’s office said.Kuiper of Fairfax, Virginia, had gone to California when she was 26. According to the sheriff’s department, Kuiper’s parents said she suffered from manic depressive disorder and used drugs.The last time the Kuipers heard of their daughter’s well-being was a few months before her death, when a friend of hers called her parents to say she was OK, the sheriff’s department said.Now, the family is grateful to have closure.“We are thankful to know what happened to our daughter after all these years,” her father, Richard Kuiper, said, according to the sheriff’s department.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.

Arians’ explanation doesn’t make a ton of sense. Some teams try to avoid kicking very short field goals from one hash mark or the other, believing the harsh angle is more difficult than a gentler one from 5 yards farther back, but that wasn’t the situation Arians faced; the Buccaneers centered the ball with a quarterback kneel immediately following the delay of game.MORE: Dallas’ win over the Dolphins was sloppy, but still sent a messagePlus, the 7 yards lost via penalty and kneel made the game-winning attempt from 34 yards away, just a yard farther than the distance for extra points, and Gay had already missed two PAT kicks Sunday, though one of those was blocked. Gay kicks his PATs from the middle of the field.Gay made his first four field-goal attempts Sunday, converting from 47, 27, 52 and 23 yards. After the loss, Gay didn’t seem to entertain the idea of whether accepting the delay of game gave him a better chance at making the game-winner.”If it does, then that’s not right,” Gay said. “I’ve got to be able to make it from wherever on the field. … It doesn’t matter if it’s 50 or 20.”Would the field goal have been good without a delay of game penalty? Here are the two ball paths, one known (in black) and the other (in red) the same kick’s path from five yards closer. Hard to tell, but potentially a closer kick would’ve grazed inside of the upright pic.twitter.com/lBnufxq5IY— Michael Lopez (@StatsbyLopez) September 23, 2019Gay’s track record offers little evidence he has any problems with short field goals. A rookie drafted in the fifth round this year out of Utah, Gay entered the Giants game 3 of 4 on field-goal attempts and 4 of 4 on extra-point kicks. He hadn’t attempted a field goal closer than 31 yards, and his lone miss was from 42 yards.In college, Gay was a perfect 17 for 17 from inside 30 yards, and he missed one of his 21 tries from between 30 and 39 yards. Unsurprisingly, he was worse from deeper than that, going 11 for 16 from 40 to 49 yards and 8 for 11 from 50 or farther.Gay’s miss Sunday was barely wide right — Arians estimated it missed by six inches — making the yardage lost to the delay of game seem particularly costly. Two plays before Buccaneers kicker Matt Gay pushed a potential game-winning 34-yard field goal wide right against the Giants on Sunday, Tampa Bay intentionally took a delay of game penalty because coach Bruce Arians thought moving 5 yards back would make the kick easier.”I just took it on purpose,” Arians said after the team’s 32-31 loss, according to Pewter Report. “[Gay] is better back — that field goal’s easier back 5 yards. No sense in hurrying.”

19 July 2010 Surrounded by members of his family, Nelson Mandela celebrated his 92nd birthday at his home in Houghton, Johannesburg on Sunday. Mandela started off his day by receiving visits from old friends, including former Zambian Prime Minister Kenneth Kaunda. Various other invited guests brought him gifts and cards. He was later serenaded by a large group of his grand-children and great-grandchildren, most of whom wore Nelson Mandela Day t-shirts to mark the first United Nations Nelson Mandela International Day. Many of Mandela’s family had been out volunteering at community projects before they arrived at his private birthday party. After singing “Happy Birthday, dear granddad!” the children were joined in their applause by the man of the moment. After two of his youngest great-granddaughters tried unsuccessfully to blow out the candles themselves, they were helped by a group of older ones. Mandela and his wife, Graça Machel, also celebrated their 12th wedding anniversary on Sunday. They were joined at the private celebration by his second wife, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela. Before the main party got under way in a marquee erected in the garden, prayers were said by various ministers of religion. The occasion also marked a commemoration of the passing away since the 1940s of various members of the family. These included Zenani Mandela junior, who was killed in a car accident at the age of 13 on 11 June, 2010; Mandela’s daughter, Makaziwe, with his first wife Evelyn Mase, who passed away in 1946 after an illness at the age of nine months; Mandela’s eldest son, Thembekile, 24, who was killed in a car accident on 13 July 1969; and his second son, Makgatho, 54, who died of complications of Aids on 6 January 2005.

1 February 2013 South Africans from across the political spectrum have paid tribute to Amina Cachalia, a staunch anti-apartheid activist and long-time friend of former president Nelson Mandela, who passed away on Thursday, aged 82. “A seasoned campaigner for women’s rights and one of the liberation movement’s foremost stalwarts, Amina came from a fiercely political family and dedicated her life full-on to the emancipation of all oppressed people in South Africa,” the Presidency said in a statement on Friday. Her political activism saw her play leading roles as a member of the Transvaal Indian Youth Congress and Transvaal Indian Congress, as treasurer of the Federation of South African Women (Fedsaw) and as patron of the Federation of Transvaal Women, among others.‘Tireless fighter for liberation’ “Our country has lost one of the most tireless and consummate fighters for liberation that we have known,” President Jacob Zuma said, “and we would like to express our heartfelt condolences to her family, friends, comrades and all who had the privilege of knowing her.” Cachalia had several stints in prison, including when she was arrested during the 1952 Defiance Campaign and also participated in the 1956 Women’s March against apartheid pass laws, and became a banned person at various stages. African National Congress (ANC) spokesman Jackson Mthembu said “Comrade Amina” was “among the women who are credited for having placed gender equity firmly as a site of struggle and aligned it to broader struggles led by the ANC. As an individual she lived through the pain of police harassment, imprisonment, house arrests, banning and humiliation.” Democratic Alliance leader Helen Zille said, that, as a member of the Indian Youth Congress and founder of the Women’s Progressive Union, Cachalia “fought fiercely to overcome injustice and racial discrimination”. Zille said that Cachalia, together with Helen Joseph, Lillian Ngoyi and Ida Mtwana, had founded Fedsaw, which led 20 000 women on the 1956 Women’s March to the Union Buildings in Pretoria. A Member of Parliament after South Africa’s first democratic elections of 1994, Cachalia received the Order of Luthuli in recognition of a life spent fighting for freedom and democracy.‘Travelled a long road with Mr Mandela’ The Nelson Mandela Foundation said on Friday that it had learned with great sadness of Cachalia’s passing. “Amina Cachalia travelled a long road with Mr Mandela and his family. She and her husband Yusuf were friends with Mr Mandela in the years before he went to prison,” the foundation said in a statement. “After he was imprisoned in 1962, they kept in touch through letters. Only after he was transferred to Pollsmoor Prison was he finally allowed to be visited by Mrs Cachalia and her husband. “They resumed their friendship after his release in 1990. In 1995 Mrs Cachalia assisted him at a luncheon he arranged for the widows of leaders from across the political spectrum. As the widow of apartheid prime minister Hendrik Verwoerd could not attend, Mr Mandela travelled to the white enclave of Orania to visit her. Mrs Cachalia accompanied him. “On 1 June 1986, when he was in Pollsmoor Prison, he wrote her a letter saying: ‘I love you and Yusuf very much and you are always in my thoughts … There is, therefore, no danger whatsoever of me forgetting you.’” SAinfo reporter
