"...........Time editor-in-chief and CEO Edward Felsenthal shared how the team chose who to include on the list, saying Zelensky and Putin are “the poles of this list, and of this moment.”

 

“When our team gets together to choose the TIME100, we have one barometer: influence. Who shaped the year? Who stood up? Who stood out? Influence, of course, may be for good or for ill — a dichotomy never more visible than in this year’s TIME 100, which includes both Vladimir Putin and Volodymyr Zelensky,” Felsenthal said. 

“The Russian dictator behind a brutal war, and his foe, the Ukrainian President, whose leadership has made him a rare heroic figure in our divisive time,” he added.

DeSantis, who was profiled by Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R), was lauded by the former presidential candidate for his approach

that has “allowed Florida to emerge from the pandemic as a national model of personal freedom, economic growth, environmental protection, and education excellence.” ............

Others in the leaders section of the annual list include future Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Chinese President Xi Jinping

and podcaster Joe Rogan.

David Perdue is having a final, combative pre-primary press conference with reporters. He calls polls showing him far behind Gov. Kemp “full of crap” and says he won’t necessarily accept the results of the election. “Depends on if there’s fraud or not.” #gapol

Translation:  If I win, there was no fraud.  If I lose, this was the crookedest election ever.

........."The Debt-Collection Operation does this to 'stir the pot,' so that the third parties start calling the consumer. Thus, the consumer's family, friends, and colleagues can serve as the collector's 'army,' pressuring the consumer to address the collector's demands," the complaint said.

"Consumers have described these tactics as 'smear campaign[s],' 'extortion,' 'terrorist collecting tactics,' and 'emotional terrorism,'" according to the lawsuit, which said that many targets were worried that getting collection calls at work would jeopardize their jobs. 

The debt collectors named this strategy "Circles," since it put the debtor at the bull's-eye of a social circle.......

Illegal tactics

It's illegal for a debt collector to reveal someone's debt to third parties or to keep calling after a person asks them to stop. CFPB Director Rohit Chopra compared such means to extortion, saying in a statement: "It is illegal for debt collectors to orchestrate smear campaigns using social media to extort consumers into paying up."

A database of complaints consumers submitted to the CFPB shows that, in some cases, debt collectors from these companies left multiple messages a day with family members and former friends. 

"They have called my family and said I am a criminal..........

collectors broke plenty of other laws, regulators say. They would sometimes tell debtors they owed much more than they actually did "in order to convince them that paying the amount they actually owe represents a substantial discount," according to the CFPB. They also threatened people with legal action that they never pursued and told debtors they would be arrested and imprisoned if they didn't pay up, the complaint says.

Under the terms of the settlement, which must be approved by a court, the companies and their owners and managers are permanently banned from the debt collection industry. They will also pay a $2 million penalty to New York's Attorney General and $2 million to the CFPB for a victim relief fund. They did not admit or deny wrongdoing."
