It acquired the shares in 2008 for $3.25, netting a gain of around $6.85bn. Including dividends, the share gain and proceeds from other securities, the stock sale raised the profit for taxpayers to $12bn. Tim Massad, Treasury acting assistant secretary for financial stability, said: “By selling all the remaining Citigroup shares today, we had an opportunity to lock in substantial profits for the taxpayer and avoid future risk.”The US Treasury invested a total of $45bn to bail out Citigroup during the financial crisis.The successful sale will intensify calls for the UK government to consider selling its 84 per cent stake in RBS and 41 per cent stake in Lloyds.If the UK government was to sell its stake in Lloyds today it would lose around £2bn. If it sold its RBS stake it would lose £8bn.UKFI, the organisation that oversees the public stake in the banks, repeated that it is in no hurry to part with the assets and will instead attempt to maximise government returns.But Execution analyst Joseph Dickerson said he believes it is time the government cut its ties with Lloyds.He said: “There is no reason the government needs to be involved. Lloyds is still reliant on wholesale funding but this would normalise as the government stake comes down. Citi is a good barometer – its shares are up by 15 per cent in four days.”“RBS is different – the government stake is higher and it is a far more complex case. I think we’re stuck with it for the long haul.” Share Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Easter falls on a Sunday this Year?

first_img April 16, 2017 at 5:59 pm The Anatomy of Fear This is the first I have heard of the white moths of New Smyrna Beach by the thousands at Easter time. I would like to know more. Is that because of a migration pattern, and they lay their eggs there for some reason? Is it certain wild flowers or plants there that attract them? I am fascinated, really. I like these little unknown nature facts that I would of thought that I had of heard about. I was reading about homeowners wanting to help the migrating monarch butterflies who depend on the milkweed plant, so they go to the nearest garden center and buy milkweed plants intending to help the monarch butterflies but what one article I read said most garden centers stock is the wrong milkweed type. That threw me off because I have bought some, and I don’t know which is the right type, but I have seen the monarchs lay eggs on them and fluttering around. The article even went on to say the monarchs have gotten lazy and are hanging around these parts rather than flying thousands of miles back and forth to Mexico. ??????? I don’t blame them, I too have gotten lazy LOL. Jim collins Please enter your comment! Inspiring Reply I enjoyed your Easter article Reggie. Also a year or so ago, Apopka Chief ran a story about how the pine trees even know it is Easter. I started reading the article and it stated that look at the pine trees all around our area right before Easter and they have little crosses on the tops of so many of them, and so I started looking at the pine trees all around as my husband was driving and sure enough, I started seeing them! And my mums are blooming once again on Easter left over from Thanksgiving. Amazing how nature knows the Easter season. I love to smell the hyacinths and the Easter lilies, but usually I end up with a yellow nose from the pollen within. My husband can’t handle them and starts sneezing his head off, and I think it is funny. Easter gives us hope!

They were good people, mostly Christians, but not too many churchgoers among them.I remember a sales associate named Michelle. She was a young mom with two kids. It was about a week from Easter, and she was discussing her children’s holiday plans.“They have the entire week off, and then they go back to school the following Monday,” I recall her saying. “So I guess that means Easter falls on a Sunday this year.”I thought she was joking, but she wasn’t.Michelle was a good mother, and a good person, but religion was not on her radar. She was not anti-Christian or anti-anything for that matter… just a single mom focused on her kids. She talked about Easter egg hunts, Easter baskets and the parties she was invited to on Easter Sunday.Michelle is someone you would want to visit your church, but how would she be treated if she did? Would she be loved, served and blessed? Or would she be judged, preached at and evangelized?A few days ago I was at a coffee shop with a few other Christian friends; mostly members of my church.A retired pastor that some in the group knew walked past. One of us said “hello” to him. He kind of frowned but said hello back. Then he opened the door about halfway and in a stoic tone said this…“It’s not about chickens and it’s not about bunny rabbits, it’s about the Lord Jesus Christ sacrificing his life for us.”Then he went inside and ordered a mocha latte.My first thought was to repeat Michelle’s infamous question to the pastor… “Does Easter fall on a Sunday this year?” Instead, I pondered the contrasting comments of Michelle and Pastor latte. Then I wondered how welcome she would feel if the first contact with a Jesus follower was to say those preachy words? Would she nod in stunned agreement and look for the nearest exit? Would her children be uncomfortable after being told their Easter basket full of candy and chocolate eggs was disrespectful to Jesus?Sometimes Christians believe that if they don’t stand strong for Jesus, He will be forgotten… that we must take on the secular forces at work to marginalize our religion.I say we go out into the world and take care of those already marginalized, needy and in pain. Allow God to work through us, and leave it to God to continue speaking to the world.And believe me, He will never be forgotten.Jesus spent a little over 30 years on earth about 2000 years ago, yet he is still the most talked about person in history. Even nature itself remembers his sacrifice. Every spring and Easter, it honors His resurrection with rebirth and renewal of its own.Lilies appear from the ground as if by magic. One day it’s an underground and forgotten bulb, the next day, it’s the featured flower in the garden. In New Smyrna Beach, white moths suddenly appear by the thousands on or around Easter every year. The entire town is transformed into a natural show of rebirth.Spring is a time of renewal. Flowers bloom. Snow melts. The earth is reborn.And Jesus is remembered. Every Easter God rewrites Genesis 1.Easter is a celebration of the greatest event in human history. There should be Easter baskets, Easter eggs, Easter bunnies, fireworks, parties; games and anything else people want to celebrate with.If the gospels are a true account of the manner in which Jesus walked the earth, then my guess is he would enjoy his time with Michelle and her children more than he would the reverent Pastor latte. He would want to attend the parties, eat, drink and spend time with friends no matter where they are in their journey.In honor of Jesus and his incredible sacrifice, let’s open our doors and love, serve and bless the visitors to our churches this Easter. Lord knows there will be lots of them!Reggie Connell is The Managing Editor of The Apopka Voice and Board Chairman at Inspire Church  Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.last_img read more

Vincent Clerc’s incredible try saving tackle on Max Evans

first_imgSunday Jun 3, 2012 Vincent Clerc’s incredible try saving tackle on Max Evans Toulouse are through to the French Top 14 final after they beat Castres 24-15 in their semi final meeting last night. Shortly before half time Castres came close to crossing the whitewash, but were held up short by a fantastic try-saving tackle.Toulouse were reduced to 13 men as they went into the halftime break having lost two to the sin bin. Florian Fritz was the first after a meaty high tackle on winger Marc Andreu.A few minutes later Castres produced a flowing counter attack from deep within their own half which looked as though it was going to result in a brilliant try for Scotland back Max Evans, but he was denied by a fantastic chase and tackle from Vincent Clerc.The try was prevented, but unfortunately for Toulouse wing Timoci Matanavou was yellow carded for a professional foul after he came in from the wrong side and picked up the ball.He didn’t have much option, and the look of bemusement was clear for all to see. The only guy more shocked by what happened would have been Evans, as a few inches were the only difference between a tryless night for his team, and a try of the season contender.Second semi finalEarlier today Toulon booked their place in the final as a late Jonny Wilkinson penalty sunk Clermont 15-12. Toulouse and Toulon will clash in the final at the Stade de France on Saturday, 9 June.It’s been one of those action-packed weekends, so there are bound to be many requests for clips so please be patient as we do what we can to post the best stuff over the next few days.

Self-build for public There is the vacant house which has formed local community. “House of Komajii” in Komagome of Tokyo opened as a place where local people stay in October, 2013. Because originally this vacant house was a dormitory, the space was divided finely. Therefore about half of the building was a storeroom. When I received the request of the design, The client expected that I released the space of the storeroom in the area, and made the structure for “House of Komajii” to become independent, and rotate. (It is run now without almost taking the fee for use by the kindness of the owner.) I plan to break a wall and enlarge the space, and more people can gather in the first floor and convert the second floor to share office as source of profits. Save this picture!© Toshihiro SobajimaI visited the building several times before beginning design. The state of the building was bad and the outdoor stairs got rusty and died, and the finish of the inner wall had come off. But many people gathered in such the building for some reason. It is the place that everybody can spend from a neighboring child to the elderly freely. It sometimes overflows with a person so that there’s no place to stand in. The community has formed spontaneously by the owner releasing the vacant house in the area. I think the scene like that the community was formed by people gathering for TV in old times when there was only one TV in the town is near that. It is not the “made” public that the government provides administratively, but the new public by “self-build” of citizen. Save this picture!© Toshihiro SobajimaSave this picture!Plan 1Save this picture!© Toshihiro SobajimaSave this picture!Plan 2I collected all the expenses of the renovation from a local user. In addition, I had local people participate in DIY, and the thought of the individual has been left to the building. And I gave priority to that I enlarged the space without spending money. Therefore the things of the different character are simultaneous in one space, for example the rough space that was only dismantled, the Japanese-style room which was just left, newly finished white wall, the old fixtures which I transferred and reused, the pillar that the heights of children were carved , the switchplate which a neighboring foreign student made with cardboard, the signboard which grandfather of the owner handcrafted, and ranma which an old craftsman made. I mix such different things without order and aim at letting them exist in a natural state. I design the architecture which does not make “made” feeling by accumulation of the “self-build” of many people.Save this picture!© Toshihiro SobajimaSave this picture!SketchProject gallerySee allShow lessThe White / Tchoban Voss ArchitektenSelected ProjectsMonash North West Precinct / Jackson Clements BurrowsSelected Projects Share Save this picture!© Toshihiro Sobajima+ 30 Share “COPY” Houseslast_img read more

Include NEET PG Aspirants, Trained Nursing Students In COVID Force; Incentivize Them With Grace Marks : Suggests Supreme Court

first_imgTop StoriesInclude NEET PG Aspirants, Trained Nursing Students In COVID Force; Incentivize Them With Grace Marks : Suggests Supreme Court Mehal Jain6 May 2021 2:29 AMShare This – x”There is no way today that we have the number of health professionals in our medical infrastructure to be able to meet the ongoing second surge and a potential third wave. No country in the world can meet such a demand. And India does not have such a quantum of human resources”, observed Justice D. Y. Chandrachud on Thursday.The bench of Justices Chandrachud and Justice M.R. Shah was considering the Centre’s SLP against the Delhi High Court’s contempt notice to its officials for failing to secure a supply of 700 MT of oxygen to Delhi as directed by the SC on April 30. Having stayed the contempt yesterday, the bench had required the Centre to explain its plan to achieve the requisite supply.In the course of the hearing, Justice Chandrachud pointed to SG Tushar Mehta the existing and the anticipated paucity of doctors, nurses and other allied health care professionals- “A fatigue is setting in the existing professionals. They have been at it since March, 2020! They are at the end of their tether…We are seeing a surge right now. There is also an anticipation by official scientists of a potential third wave””There are 1.5 lakh doctors waiting to appear in the NEET who have completed the medical course and their internship. There are some 2.5 lakh nurses who are now fully trained. They can be involved in the COVID workforce. But if you give them 15-25,000 rupees, nobody would come. How can you make Covid service attractive to them? This can bolster your infrastructure for the third surge”, suggested the judge.The SG responded that there could also be an incentive by way of grace marks in the PG exam.The SG added that an effort in the direction of this suggestion regarding tapping available human resources of to-be doctors and to-be nurses is already underway- “Something is happening in this direction. I have spoken to a high-placed officer in this regard. I will check with the Health Ministry and respond back to the Court”Justice Shah pointed out that there are so many MBBS degree holders also who are performing non-medical and administrative duties as associate professors etc. “Let them also be deputed. If students can be deputed in hospitals, they must also be. Right now they are not doing anything and they are sitting at home. All of them are your employees!”, said the judge.The SG suggested that even private doctors may be asked to come and render their service–”As of now, there is 1 doctor for 100-150 patients in hospitals. If even 20% (of private doctors) come, that would be enough”SG Mehta then shared with the bench a note on behalf of the government of India on this aspect:He averred that in view of the COVID situation, the NEET PG 2021 has been postponed and that the exam will now be scheduled for only after August 31 and that all candidates will be given atleast 1 month’s time even after the exam date is notified.Accordingly, Mr. Mehta pointed out that the Centre has urged the state/UT governments to try to reach out to all NEET candidates and persuade them to join the COVID workforce.”The state/UT governments can utilise even medical interns under the supervision of their faculty by way of internship. The final year MBBS students can be deployed for providing services like tele-consultation…”, it has been proposed by the Centre.Further, it is submitted that the services of final year PG students and residents may continue to be utilised until the fresh admissions. Similarly, the services of the senior resident/registrars be continued to be utilised under new recruitment until new recruitments are made.”Qualified nurses may be utilised full-time in ICUs etc under the supervision of doctors and senior nurses. Final year nursing students may also be given full-time duties at government or private facilities under supervision…allied healthcare professionals can be appointed for assistance in Covid management depending on their training and certification”, it is proposed.”The National Health Mission norm for contractual human resource engagement may be considered by states and UTs Flexibility is with the states to decide on remuneration for the same”, it is said.As regards the incentive and recognition of such service, the states and UTs have been given liberty to decide on a suitable honorarium for distinguished service. All health professionals engaged will be covered under the insurance scheme of the government for health workers fighting Covid. Also professionals who sign up for minimum hundred days of Covid duty will be given the Prime Minister’s National COVID Samman. States are to ensure that medical professionals so engaged in Covid care are fully vaccinated.Besides, it is asserted that these relaxations and incentives, which are to augment human resources during COVID pandemic, should be fully availed by all institutions- central, state and private.The Centre has stated that the financial incentives or remuneration shall be available only for those who work at least hundred days for Covid care.The government of India has also recommended the states and UTs to consider giving preference in regular government appointments of health professionals to these persons who complete a minimum of hundred days of Covid related duty.The state/UT governments have also been urged to expeditiously fill vacant posts of doctors, nurses, other related healthcare staff, at most within 45 days through contractual appointments.After perusing the note, Justice Chandrachud pointed out- “The most important thing is missing here…incentive in the form of grace marks in the NEET PG course. Money won’t help. People won’t stir out in these COVID times otherwise”.”This Suggestion will be conveyed with utmost sincerity and I am sure the government would not object”, assured the SG.Justice Shah pointed out that there must also be follow-up steps taken by the state government and that they must report to the Centre, and that the above policy must not only remain on paper.Amicus Curiae Jaipdeep Gupta pointed out a news clipping that Himachal Pradesh is giving by way of incentive some Rs.1500-Rs.3000 to these medical professionals. “This is a message on WhatsApp circulation and it is totally wrong. Some senior lawyer sent it to me and immediately corrected that I should not act on it as it is not correct. What I said to him was that this sum of Rs. 1500-3000 is not an incentive but an insult!”, clarified the SG.As Mr. Gujpta pressed that he has received this information from a doctor at Medanta, the bench also remarked that it is clearly fake news.Tags#Supreme Court #COVID19 #NEET #Nursing Students #COVID WORK FORCE #Grace marks Next Storylast_img read more

Ghana’s Chief of the Naval Staff Pays Visit to Naples

first_img View post tag: Navy The purpose of the visit was to strengthen bi-lateral ties between the two navies and discuss increased opportunities for collaboration to achieve maritime security in the Gulf of Guinea.“Face-to-face interactions with our African partners strengthen our ability to collaborate and address shared security concerns in the Gulf of Guinea,” said Ferguson. “They also serve to reinforce the U.S. Navy’s commitment to strengthening our maritime partnerships throughout the region.”Biekro had the opportunity to visit the U.S. 6th Fleet Maritime Operations Center and discuss maritime collaboration with U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa leadership, to include Vice Adm. Phil Davidson, commander, U.S. 6th Fleet.As a testament to the ongoing partnership between the two navies, U.S. naval forces teamed with Ghana naval forces and interagency units earlier this spring for Africa Maritime Law Enforcement Partnership (AMLEP). During the operation, the combined U.S.-Ghana boarding team was able to board three fishing vessels that were fishing illegally in Ghanaian waters.Additionally, Ghana is a long-running participant of Obangame Express, the multinational maritime exercise held in the Gulf of Guinea, and recently hosted the initial planning event for the upcoming exercise scheduled in 2015.“We recognize the importance of key partners like Ghana taking ownership of maritime security in the Gulf of Guinea,” said Rear Adm. John Nowell, U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa Chief of Staff. “We continue to focus our efforts on building maritime capabilities and working with the interagency organizations in the region. I am confident we will continue to collectively benefit from engagements like this.”U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa/U.S. 6th Fleet, headquartered in Naples, Italy, conducts the full spectrum of joint and naval operations, often in concert with allied, joint, and interagency partners, in order to advance U.S. national interests and security and stability in Europe and Africa.[mappress]Press Release, August 07, 2014; Image: Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa, Adm.
