Fmr Wells Fargo Subprime Loan Officer: Bank Targeted Black Churches for Subprime Loans 1 of 2

Up until two years ago, Elizabeth Jacobson was the top producing loan officer in the subprime division at Wells Fargo. Today she is speaking out against the practices of her former company. Earlier this summer, she filed a sworn affidavit with a federal court in support of the city of Baltimores lawsuit against Wells Fargo for pushing high-interest, subprime loans onto African Americans in Baltimore and the Maryland suburbs, leading hundreds into foreclosure.

Slavyansky Bank Slavyansky Bank (Russia) commercial – Blok

The ad was created by film director Timur Bekmambetov known by its two films ‘Night Watch’ and ‘Day Watch’ that were shown in Europe and the USA. The clip was filmed for the Slavyansky bank and doesn’t advert anything, perhaps the point is in the name of the bank ‘Slavyanskyi’ — ‘Slavonic’, it should be something representative for Russian culture, so ad is a simple video sequence for a Block’s poem. Alexander Blok, well-known poet of the Silver Age of the Russian culture (end of the 19 — early 20 c. — high point of the development of the Russian culture — in music, literature, painting etc.) The text of the poem written in 1903 The girl was singing in a church choir, About the weary abroad, far away, About the ships in the sea, so dire, And those who’d forgotten their happy day, So sweet was her voice flying up into highness With shimmering beam on her shoulder of white, And every one listened watching from darkness, The way the white garment was singing in light. And every one thought that the joy was there, That the ships were all in a quiet bay, And the weary people abroad, full of care, Were now all blessed with a happy day. The voice was sweet, and the beam was shining, And only up there at the royal rack, A child, conversant with secret, was crying, That nobody, really, would ever come back.

New York Construction Magazine Honors JRS Architect, P.C. Bank Project

Mineola, NY (PRWEB) December 13, 2007

JRS Architect, P.C. has been honored by McGraw-Hill’s New York Construction magazine for its unique architectural design for Madison National Bank’s branch in Merrick, NY.

The architectural firm, which has offices in Long Island, New York City and New Jersey, received the Award of Merit in the retail category in the publication’s Best Of 2007 winners, which was voted on by a jury of industry leaders. The award was presented today.

“It’s always gratifying to receive recognition for our work and we are especially proud of our work for Madison National Bank,” said John R. Sorrenti, F.A.I.A., President of JRS. “Awards, such as this New York Construction’s Award of Merit, inspire us to accomplish even greater things in the future.”

JRS, one of the nation’s leading bank architectural and design firms, created a unique design that serves as a cornerstone to the brand image of Madison National Bank, which was opened its doors earlier this year. The design was based upon Madison National Bank’s vision to have their bank reflect a warm and inviting environment.

“The bank’s founders wanted something that was different, eye catching and reminiscent of old world design, coupled with the benefits of the latest building technology and products,” said Sorrenti.

The firm designed an almost 3,700-square foot branch with a towering brick chimney, high sloping roof and turreted vestibule that allows it to stand out on Merrick’s busy streetscape.

JRS’ design for the bank was based on American revival architecture of the mid to late 19th Century, a style called Richardson Romanesque and named after architect Henry Hobson Richardson, whose masterpiece is Trinity Church in Boston. Richardson’s style is characterized by massive stone walls and dramatic semicircular arches over windows and entranceways, rounded towers with conical roofs whose counterpoint resides in the dynamism of interior space. To create an open, inviting and warm interior, JRS used a cathedral ceiling supported by Queen Ann trusses, a burning fireplace, wrought iron bronze chandeliers and red and gold floral carpeting and upholstered chairs.
