It has unique exposure to emerging markets, is well-capitalised with high levels of liquidity, and is reassuringly disciplined when it comes to costs. But yesterday’s update suggests its prudence is less steadfast than previously thought. Peter Sands can make a good case for growing costs more quickly than income. Everybody, from small local players to giants like HSBC, wants a piece of Asia. These days, it doesn’t come cheap. Competition for business, both in retail and wholesale, is increasingly stiff. Standard Chartered has built 50 new consumer branches and 90 customer centres, as well as investing in better facilities for its bankers. Staff costs are also creeping up. In India and China, where the authorities understand that top talent must be paid top whack in a global marketplace, bankers are commanding higher salaries and bonuses than ever before. Higher investment might make shareholders nervous, but will be worth it in the end. Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Photo/Sharon Sheridan/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Salt Lake City] Much happens each day during General Convention. In addition to Episcopal News Service’s other coverage, here are some additional news items from July 1, the second day of the June 25-July 3 gathering.The hot topic of debate on the morning of July 1 among the General Convention participants who have taken over the second floor meeting rooms at Salt Lake City’s Marriott Downtown was chocolate pudding.The specific question at hand: Can we have more, please?It was snack time at the children’s program, which has been serving about 20 to 30 infants and children through age 12, each day, according to Becky Ball. She is the local Salt Lake City organizer for the program, a collaborative effort between the Diocese of Utah and the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society’s Office of Lifelong Formation.“It’s a little crazy at times, but it’s a lot of fun and it’s going really well,” Ball, with a half-opened pudding cup in hand, said during a momentary break in the action.Under the care of a dozen teenage counselors and as many adult volunteers, the children attend the daily Eucharist, enjoy age-appropriate activities and get to do something many adult convention-goers would be willing to trade their voting credentials for: They take naps. There also are field trips for the older kids. So far they’ve visited Salt Lake’s Museum of Natural History, the zoo and the food distribution ministry at the Cathedral Church of St. Mark.The program enables parents, who might otherwise not be able to attend General Convention, to participate fully at the triennial gathering.The program is about more than just childcare, according to its organizers. Its Christian formation component has the children exploring daily Scripture lessons in a hands-on way. Today’s gospel lesson was the parable of the lost sheep, so the little ones were making sheep out of paper plates and cotton balls; the older group was building a LEGO scene from the story.There has been a children’s program at General Convention since 2006. Having children present, the program’s organizers say, means that the entire church community is present.For the children, it means fun, learning and prayer — plus pudding.— Tracy J.

New York law targets BDS activists

first_imgThe Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israel’s apartheid policies won big victories in 2015, 10 years after BDS was launched by Palestinian civilian organizations. Now, a vicious campaign is targeting Palestine supporters at the state and national levels in the U.S. through “enemies list” laws aimed at BDS advocates.In New York state, Senate Bill S6086/Assembly Bill 8220 has been introduced to punish people, companies and nonprofit organizations that support boycotting Israel because of its attacks on the Palestinian people. The bill would create a list of people “engaging in actions that are politically motivated and are intended to penalize, inflict economic harm on, or otherwise limit commercial relations with the state of Israel or companies based in the state of Israel or in territories controlled by the state of Israel.”Individuals, organizations and companies on the list would be denied access to grants, funding or contracts with New York state. For instance, a church, mosque or synagogue participating in a rally advocating for BDS could potentially lose state funding for its homeless shelter or its community food bank program.To get off the list, accused individuals or groups would be required to sign a statement repudiating a boycott of Israel. This parallels the notorious 1950s McCarthyite policing of people’s political beliefs, when to receive government scholarships, for example, students had to sign loyalty oaths to the Constitution.Petition drive launchedThe Syracuse-based Palestine Solidarity Collective has launched a petition drive to inform people about the BDS movement and to alert people to the reactionary New York state bill.The petition reads in part: “[New York] Senate Bill S6086/Assembly Bill 8220 seeks to criminalize political action. … In effect, this law would grant the state the power to coerce those who wish to support Palestinian human rights and the call for BDS. … The Bill conflates BDS with anti-Semitism. …. BDS is not anti-Semitism because it targets the expanding and illegal occupation by the state of Israel and its military, which uses disproportionate and illegal forms of violence against Palestinian civilians.” ( a sustained attack on BDS, similar laws have been passed by the Illinois and South Carolina legislatures and are under consideration in California, Florida, Massachusetts and New Jersey. ( An anti-BDS clause was attached to the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, a major U.S. “free trade” deal with the European Union that was OK’d by Congress in July.The current anti-BDS campaign is a reaction to powerful BDS initiatives against Israel. In a stunning victory, a seven-year BDS campaign drove French-based corporate giant Veolia out of Israel in 2015, forcing it to sell off all subsidiaries there. Veolia was deeply invested in infrastructure projects in illegal Israeli settlements, and its withdrawal reportedly cost it billions of dollars.BDS economic muscle helped cut foreign direct investment in Israel by 46 percent in 2014, according to separate United Nations and World Bank studies. A Rand Corp. analysis projected BDS could cost Israel between 1 and 2 percent in annual national income over ten years. (, Dec. 30)A 2015 cultural boycott of Israel reinforced the economic boycott, supported by over 1,000 artists, writers and musicians, including Lauryn Hill, Alice Walker and Arundhati Roy. A parallel academic boycott has international support, including U.S. professional groups like the National Women’s Studies Association.A growing international movement against racism has linked Palestinian struggles to the Black Lives Matter movement, with chants and signs asserting, “From Ferguson to Palestine, occupation is a crime,” at many protests. U.S. student divestment campaigns have proliferated, and student-worker movements have weighed in, as when United Auto Workers Local 2865, representing all graduate students in the University of California system, endorsed BDS in 2014.International unions have passed BDS resolutions, including the Arab Labor Union and Canada’s Central Council of the Confederation of National Trade Unions. The United Electrical Workers Union became the first major U.S. national trade union to adopt BDS.The Palestine Solidarity Collective petition against the New York state “enemies list” bill has been signed by organizations including Labor for Palestine, the International Action Center, Jews for Palestinian Right of Return, Samidoun: Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network and the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation.To sign as an individual or group, go to contributing editor Minnie Bruce Pratt is a member of the Palestine Solidarity Collective in Syracuse, N.Y.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

From Kind Words to Care Packages, Pasadena Police Officers Feel the Love from the Community

You don’t get that off-the-cusp stuff very often,” said Lieutenant Pete Hettema. “The community is projecting a balance that’s comforting.”Citizens have been generously donating packages filled with delicious food, drinks and thank you cards for police officers in the wake of the deadly shootings that took several lives of dedicated officers across state lines.“It makes us feel really appreciated. It let us know that the community supports us,” said Pasadena Police Officer Conrad Austin.Care package items include breakfast burritos, various snacks, cake, Gatorade, and much more to keep the officers happy and healthy during around the clock, demanding shifts.“There’s a lot of things that really support the officers throughout their shift regardless of what shift they’re on,” said Lieutenant Tracey Ibarra.This physical display of appreciation doesn’t stop there. Kind words of admiration have flooded the streets in more ways than one.“The Pasadena Police Department has received countless positive phone calls, text messages and emails expressing gratitude and support,” according to Pasadena Police Chief Phillip Sanchez.Officers Conrad Austin and Barry Glockson have noticed a large increase of citizens approaching them out in the field on a regular basis to simply say “thank you” in just the past couple weeks since tragedy took place across the nation.“Every call we go on citizens approach us,” said Austin.Officer Glockson recalled being approached just the other day by an elderly man who extended words of appreciation as well as a young girl all in just a matter of a couple hours.“It really hits home with us,” said Glockson who recalled the instance the young girl thanked him for protecting her family and presented him with a note. “I put it on my refrigerator. I think it’s awesome.”The highly evident increase of support from citizens is a reminder of the type of relationship that the Pasadena Police Department works hard to cultivate.“In a recent community survey we rated about a seventy-eight percent approval rating, which suggests that there is still some work to do — there’s no doubt about that — but I think the vast majority of Pasadenans support its police officers and recognize the difficult job our first responders do every day,” said Pasadena Police Chief Phillip Sanchez in a televised interview with KABC-TV Eyewitness News.The outpouring of community support is a morale booster for the men and women who risk it all to keep Pasadena a safe place to live.“It makes us want to work harder,” said Austin.

Mother thankful as son recovers from heart surgery

first_imgLatest Stories Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson When Micah Washington Rogers was born, he was the picture of health. He weighed 10 pounds and 7 ounces and was nearly 24 inches long.“We never would have thought Micah would have to battle heart disease,” said his mom, LaShea Money-Rogers. “But, two weeks later, we learned the Micah had heart murmurs. We were told that he had two holes in his heart. It was a shock to learn that but it was something that Micah could live with.”Money-Rogers said that Micah’s heart condition was always in the back of her mind and she prayed continually for his health.But, on Jan. 30, 2012, when Micah was 17-months old, he was diagnosed with a condition that was preventing the flow of blood to his heart and his family was told that surgery was necessary. Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Book Nook to reopen Mother thankful as son recovers from heart surgery By Jaine Treadwell Print Article Email the author By Health Videos Next Up“Micah was diagnosed one day short of the death of his grandmother, Johnnie Mae Wilson Money, who died after undergoing a triple heart bypass operation,” Money-Rogers said. “Micah’s surgery was originally set for February 8 but because of the many sick babies at Children’s Hospital in Birmingham, his surgery was postponed until Feb. 23.”Money-Rogers said she didn’t know how she was going to make it through her son’s surgery. “I started crying when they told me that Micah had to have surgery and couldn’t stop,” she said. “I was so worried about him. You don’t think of a little baby having heart surgery.”Money-Rogers said the most difficult time was when little Micah was wheeled off to surgery. “I felt so helpless,” she said.  Micah was a good patient and a very determined little boy. “He wanted to get well so he could go home,” his mom said. “But, while he was in the hospital, he never stopped smiling. He loves to dance and every time music came on television, he would start dancing. Everybody had a good time with him. His spirit was amazingly positive. That just shows how strong a little boy can be.”In just three short days, Micah was released from the hospital. “It was miraculous,” Money-Rogers said. “For him to have heart surgery and be at home in three days was really a miracle.” Money-Rogers said that, when a family goes through a crisis with a small child, the support and prayers of family and friends lifts them up. “We had a great support system from family and friends who prayed continually for us,” she said.“And, had it not been for Micah’s heart condition being found early, we might not have him today. I would like to encourage all parents to be aware that, when a child is always tired and has problems breathing, that might be an indication of a serious problem.”Have your child checked by a physician if he shows symptoms of something serious. We are blessed that Micah’s condition was found early and that prayer and the skilled hands of doctors brought him through.”  Micah is doing well and is up and playing with his brother, Eliakem Money, 10, and his baby sister, Skyy Rogers, seven months. “His appetite is returning and his sense of humor is keener than ever,” his mom said.
