The Federal Reserve Board on Friday invited public comment on a proposal to publish a periodic list of depository institutions that have access to Federal Reserve accounts—often referred to as “master accounts”—and payment services. The proposal would result in a transparent and accessible source of this information for the public. In August, the Board adopted final guidelines that establish a transparent, risk-based, and consistent set of factors for Reserve Banks to use in reviewing requests to access these accounts and payment services. “Today’s proposal will enhance transparency to the public by periodically publishing a comprehensive list of financial institutions that have access to Federal Reserve accounts and payment services,” said Vice Chair Lael Brainard. “I look forward to getting feedback on this proposal for enhanced transparency.” The proposal issued today would build on the transparency of the guidelines by requiring Reserve Banks to periodically disclose which depository institutions have access to their accounts and payment services. Comments will be accepted for 60 days after publication in the Federal Register. For media inquiries, please email [email protected] or call 202-452-2955.

The One-Punch Man anime’s official Twitter has warned fans not to be misled by a recent leak claiming MAPPA will animate Season 3. The One-Punch Man anime’s official Twitter account has put a damper on rumors circulating about who will animate their upcoming third season. The message from @opm_anime urged fans not to be “misled by unofficial information from other accounts,” stating that “accurate information will be announced from this account when it is time.” While the tweet does not outright deny the report that MAPPA will animate Season 3, it does cast doubt on what appeared to be a major development for the highly anticipated return of the series. RELATED: One-Punch Man: What Makes Saitama's Unique Character Design Work So Well Season 2 of the One-Punch Man anime concluded back in 2019, and in the three years since, there has been little information about when the series will resume. The manga from writer ONE and illustrator Yusuke Murata is still going strong, in its 27th volume at the time of writing, while the franchise has also branched out with the mobile game ONE-PUNCH MAN: The Strongest, which fans of the series for its cringe-worthy ad campaign. ONE has also kept busy with a new manga titled Versus, created in collaboration with Azuma Kyoutarou of Tenkaichi and King of Fighters fame. The series kicked off on Nov. 26 with its first chapter, released in Monthly Shōnen Sirius. While One-Punch remains on indefinite hiatus, MAPPA has been busy taking the anime industry by storm. Their packed production schedule has included major hits like Attack on Titan: The Final Season, Jujutsu Kaisen and Chainsaw Man, and the studio shows no signs of slowing down with series like Vinland Saga Season 2 and Hell's Paradise: Jigokuraku slated for 2023. While One-Punch Man’s recent tweet has refuted their inclusion in that lineup, the series does have a history of moving studios. J.C. Staff took charge for the second, and neither was confirmed to helm the third, leaving room for speculation to circle around whether a studio like MAPPA may take the reins. RELATED: How Studio MAPPA Is Fooling Anime Fans With Sneaky Animation As fans wait for official information on the release of One-Punch Man’s third season, the first two seasons are available to stream on Crunchyroll. The manga is available from VIZ Media, while there is also a wealth of fan-made content to enjoy, including stunning animation from artist Detox112 and a comic by Hong Kong-based artist and author Cminglap titled One-Punch Man: The Fight of Gods.

A Hampton County, South Carolina emergency medical services (EMS) worker who was charged with domestic violence earlier this year has now been accused of hurling racist epithets at a co-worker. Earlier this week, my news outlet was provided with a recording of a dispute between two EMS workers – a… A Hampton County, South Carolina emergency medical services (EMS) worker who was charged with domestic violence earlier this year has now been accused of hurling racist epithets at a co-worker. Earlier this week, my news outlet was provided with a recording of a dispute between two EMS workers – a male and a female – which purportedly took place several months ago. As the dispute escalated, the male accused the female – who was attempting to leave the scene of the incident in her vehicle – of trying to “frame” him regarding some text messages. At this point, the male voice exploded into a torrent of hateful, racist expletives – including the repetitive use of an especially egregious slur against blacks. “F*ck your n*gger-loving ass,” the male voice captured on the audio file. “You’re just a n*gger-lover. N*gger-loving whore, bitch. F*ck you!” Here is the segment of the recording containing the slurs. Be warned, though. As you can tell from the above-referenced quote the recording is exceedingly graphic … (Click to listen) (Via: Provided) According to multiple sources familiar with the situation, the voice on the recording belongs to 41-year-old Charles Michael Long, Jr. of Hampton, S.C. – who was arrested two months ago by agents of the S.C. State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) on a second degree domestic violence charge. According to a probable cause affidavit accompanying the warrant for his arrest, on June 2, 2022 Long kicked his victim in the hip following a “heated altercation.” He then attempted to prevent her from accessing her phone, according to the affidavit. “The offense was committed in its entirety in front of a 12-year-old juvenile,” the affidavit (.pdf) added. Long’s arrest was announced by SLED on August 23, 2022. At the time, he was listed as a “former” Hampton County EMS worker – meaning he had been terminated prior to the arrest becoming public – however he was reportedly rehired by the agency less than a month later. According to my sources, the recording which contains the racist epithets was made last December. This news outlet is investigating the circumstances surrounding both the recording and Long’s rehiring by Hampton EMS following his domestic violence charge – which is still pending. Hampton EMS is led by its director, Chris Altman, who reports to the county administrator, Rose Dobson-Elliott. According to reporter Michael DeWitt of The Hampton County Guardian, Hampton’s EMS is “nationally-certified” and has received the state’s highest level of accreditation. Its responders are “capable of handling any life threatening situation, including cardiac arrests.” The agency is also said to be active in the community – providing EMS training to school officials among other services. Hampton County receives an estimated 3,000 calls for emergency medical assistance each year and its EMS agency was recently praised by county councilman Roy Hollingsworth for providing “first rate emergency services to the citizens of Hampton County.” Located in the southern tip of South Carolina, Hampton County has become a household name nationally given its role as the backdrop for the ‘Murdaugh Murders’ crime and corruption saga, a sprawling maze of alleged criminality tied to one of its most powerful, prominent families. ***** (Via: FITSNews) Will Folks is the founding editor of the news outlet you are currently reading.

“Sign of the Times. I never thought that I would end up being a music producer. That never was a goal of mine as a kid. Did I love music? Yes. Did I think I was gonna be a part of the story we call “Hip-Hop”? No,” 9th Wonder captioned his post. “Everyone’s path is different into the culture. Mine was by way of a computer program in 2000. Some things you just do, out of necessity, not knowing the ripple effect it would have on culture. I was introduced to @flstudio in 2000 by my brother @khrysis_, and it all fell into place from there. Heavily ridiculed and looked down upon? Yes. Did it stop me from making slappers? No.” He continued: “Now, many moons later, making beats WITHOUT a computer is now almost obsolete; there are still hardware users in the culture, but I see more laptops and controllers than ever before. Either way, me stepping into a studio making Jay-Z’s “Threat” in 25 minutes was the beginning of a revolution. Sitting in a studio in front of half of Rocafella and make a beat with an @ibm ThinkPad in 2003 for such a legendary album, was mind blowing to some, but for me, it was just something I had been doing, over, and over, and over….making slappers on a PC.”
9th went on and gave praise to the “millions” of creatives who still use FL Studio around the world and told them to continue making beats and adding on to the culture. FL Studio was partially released in December 1997 and had an official launch in 1998 under the name FruityLoops. The program became a hit amongst musicians and producers, especially does Hip Hop as it made sampling and other beat-making tools more efficient.
Along with 9th Wonder, other big-name producers continue to use the program, such as 808Mafia, Metro Boomin, Boi-1da, Hit-Boy, Mike Will Made It, Mustard, TM88 and more. DJ Khaled recently came under fire after an old interview of him dragging the digital program surfaced online last month. In the clip, Khaled said programs such as FL Studio changed Hip Hop production for the worse and made it easy for anyone to be a beatsmith.
“Producing changed. They made Logic, they made Fruity Loops,” Khaled said at the time. “It’s called: too easy. It’s called: you tell a computer what to program. That’s why you see everybody is a producer and a DJ now.” “But it takes a great producer like me to tell them, ‘The sounds is garbage, they’re fake, don’t fall for the trap,’” he added. Many producers spoke up and took a stand against Khaled, including Hit-Boy, who explained that he actually used FL Studio to produce some of the We The Best mogul’s biggest hits. related news September 27, 2022 “I produced ‘theraflu’ and ‘wish you would’ for khaled and kanye fully off FL studio,” the King’s Disease producer wrote on Twitter.

A TikToker took the melody from the classic Americana song “Old MacDonald Had A Farm” and turned it into a raucous EDM-style rage beat, amassing over 150,000 views on the platform. The song sounds relatively normal in the clip at first, until six seconds in, when it explodes with a car crash sound effect, hi-hats, bass, and pummeling synthesizers. The music style is known as “rage,” an EDM-inflected rap subgenre popularized by artists like Yeat and Ken Carson. “Old McDonald ahh beat,” the creator wrote in on-screen text. The comments are overflowing with viewers writing memes about the music or demanding the creator put it on Spotify, with some calling it a “masterpiece.” “I’ve ascended into a higher plane of existence,” one commenter wrote. The creator, Shankz, has amassed over a million likes and tens of thousands of followers for making similarly “goofy” beats (like a recent Christmas-themed one) and bizarre parodies, along with more serious music production. The origin of the song “Old MacDonald” dates back centuries to the playwright Thomas d’Urfey, who wrote it for a 1706 opera and called it “In the Fields in Frost and Snow,” according to the songwriting news and tips outlet American Songwriter. Versions of the song were consistently reused, and it has persisted as a popular folk tune up to today. There’s a whole TikTok subgenre of music producers making intentionally silly beats by splicing strange sound effects into finished songs or purposefully going against proper sound design techniques. The style has gone so widespread that a producer even made a tutorial on how to make an “ACTUALLY good beat” with only “goofy ahh sounds.” Read next

For nearly a decade, New York’s Master Teacher program has done just that and has recognized the critical contribution of New York State educators in setting students on that path toward rewarding careers in STEM. Millions of STEM jobs require some form of higher education. Teachers play a critical role in preparing those students for college and a career beyond the classroom in an ever-changing and ever-growing field. We are honored to recognize these dedicated educators for their contributions and to be able to provide them with the tools they need to ensure student success.” State Education Commissioner Betty A. Rosa said, “When I started my career in education, I was fortunate to have an outstanding mentor to help guide me.
