Tags: Trading Archive JP Morgan maintained the top spot in both the global rankings – with $25.2bn (£19.3bn) – and in Europe, while Barclays continued to gain ground through its investment banking push.Volatile markets at the end of 2018 led to the world’s biggest investment banks reporting significant revenue drops.Deutsche Bank was the second best performing investment bank in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region in 2017 but dropped to fourth last year, according to industry monitor Coalition.The data comes after Germany’s largest lender began exploratory merger talks with rival Commerzbank earlier this week after months of speculation.The German government, concerned over the bank’s health, has pushed for the potential merger to protect the country’s banking sector. Deutsche Bank has fallen below its US rivals in a ranking of investment banks in Europe, adding to the under-fire German lender’s woes.Citigroup and Goldman Sachs both jumped above Deutsche Bank in a ranking of the world’s investment banks at the end of last year.

Southeast | State Government | TransportationFerry LeConte to give Pelican a lift in late MayFebruary 28, 2020 by Ari Snider, KCAW – Sitka Share:Pelican harbor, pictured here in late 2019. The Chichagof Island town hasn’t seen a ferry since last fall. (Photo courtesy of Heather Bauscher)Amid a months-long ferry drought, the town of Pelican got a bit of good news this week — the ferry LeConte will make at least one stop there in the spring.Pelican was originally left off the draft summer ferry schedule. The town hasn’t had a sailing since last fall.Norm Carson, president of Pelican’s chamber of commerce and member of the Marine Transportation Advisory Board, has been advocating for more ferry service for months.“Well it’s excellent news for the town, we’ve been without a ferry since October,” Carson said.He said the sailing will allow residents and the local fish processor to ship in much-needed supplies. And it’s also an opportunity to empty the city’s sewage tank, which would be at risk of overflowing into Lisianski Inlet if it misses its yearly pump out.“We’ll have three pumper trucks come out and they will pump out the city septic tank and get back on that ferry and get back to Juneau, same day,” said Carson.One ferry isn’t going to carry the town through the summer, but Carson is optimistic that the Alaska Marine Highway will arrange contract service to move people and freight until regular service is restored.Carson expects the LeConte will make the Juneau-to-Pelican roundtrip sailing on or around May 17.DOT spokesperson Sam Dapcevich said the agency is working on setting up a run to Pelican, but could not confirm details until the official summer schedule is released.Share this story:
Tags: General Election 2015 Labour leadership race Wednesday 13 May 2015 1:18 pm whatsapp whatsapp Sarah Spickernell The race is on to find the next Labour party leader, but we’ll have to wait four months to find out the result.The ruling National Executive Committee has confirmed that those wishing to compete have until 15 June to gain the support of 34 colleagues, or 15 per cent of the party’s MPs, and the chosen leader will be announced on 12 September. The party’s annual conference will take place two weeks later on 27 September. Labour’s outcome at the General Election was worse than anyone was expecting, securing just 232 after losing out to the SNP in Scotland and failing to take key seats in the rest of the UK. The Conservatives ended up winning a majority government, and this has raised questions within the Labour party about the direction it is going in. Harriet Harman, who assumed the role of acting leader following Ed Miliband’s resignation last week, said the party now needs an “open and honest debate on the way forward”. “Our challenge now is to use this time to listen and learn, to elect a new leader and deputy leader who will rebuild the Labour Party in order to take the fight to this Tory government and to stand up for Britain.” Who’s competing?We don’t have the full list of competitors yet, but there are some favourites for the position. Chuka Umunna, Liz Kendall, Yvette Cooper and Andy Burnham have all voiced their intentions to run, and each is considered a likely option. The deputy leadership role is also up for grabs, since Harriet Harman said she would not seek a second term in the role. Stella Creasy, Tom Watson, Angela Eagle and Caroline Flint are believed to be strong candidates.

Bill 32, the Credit Union Amendment Act, would also allow businesses to become members of CUs, giving small and medium-sized businesses more options to access credit. The bill would also give members the right to take advantage of federal tax-planning programs for interest earned on CU revenue as well as updates governance legislation affecting CUs. “Credit unions are a vital part of Alberta’s financial industry and our communities,” says Joe Ceci, president of treasury board and minister of finance for Alberta, in a statement. “These changes would increase choice for consumers, support economic growth and introduce modern governance so credit unions can continue to be successful into the future, with strong accountability to members and the public.” Alberta Central, the liquidity provider and industry advocate for the province’s 23 CUs, praised the government for introducing the bill, which it characterized as the first major overhaul of provincial legislation governing provincial CUs in 30 years. “The Alberta credit union system believes that Bill 32, if passed, will serve to further enhance the competitiveness and sustainability of Alberta credit unions, which in turn will provide further benefits to Albertans, Alberta small and medium-sized businesses, and the provincial economy,” says Graham Wetter, president and CEO of Alberta Central, in a statement. Provisions in Bill 32 would require compensation disclosure for the five highest-paid executive officers in CUs that represent more than 2.5% of total CU industry assets. Quorum requirements for general meetings would be updated based on the size of individual CUs, recognizing that many such institutions have grown significantly. The legislation would require that Alberta Central’s board include at least two unaffiliated directors; it would also implement a dispute-resolution process in the event that one CU obtained majority representation on the board.

Published: March 25, 2010 Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail From April 5 through 9, for the 62nd time since 1948, distinguished guests from throughout the United States and the world will pay their own way to participate in a unique event film critic Roger Ebert refers to as the “Conference on Everything Conceivable.” The University of Colorado at Boulder’s annual Conference on World Affairs returns this spring, offering nearly 200 events, all of which are free and open to the public.Notable guests joining Ebert at the CWA this year include acclaimed filmmaker Werner Herzog, decorated veteran and West Point professor Colonel Isaiah “Ike” Wilson, “Saturday Night Live’s” Julia Sweeney, radio host John Hockenberry, scientific historian Naomi Oreskes and author and political commentator Jim Hightower.The theme for the 62nd Conference is “Free Thinking” which, CWA Director Jim Palmer says, “is meant to describe both the Conference’s cost-free attendance and its unrestricted, free-ranging topics and ideas. We are committed to keeping the Conference free in both senses.” Many of the events illustrate the CWA planning committee’s commitment to free thought. This year’s keynote, delivered by Wilson at 11:30 a.m on Monday, April 5, in Macky Auditorium, is titled “Rethinking American Power.” Other panels include “I Never Let My Schooling Interfere With My Education,” and “Out of this World: Is Music Solely a Terrestrial Art?”This year’s schedule includes a variety of sessions with wide-ranging appeal. Highlights include a plenary address by Naomi Oreskes on Monday at 1 p.m. in Macky Auditorium. She will be giving the NCAR/UCAR 50th Anniversary Lecture called “Communicating Climate Science: Why Is This So Hard?” Oreskes is a professor of history and science studies at the University of California, San Diego, whose research focuses on the development of scientific knowledge and understanding scientific consensus and dissent.Following Oreskes in Macky Auditorium, Herzog will speak at 3 p.m. on the topic “Traveling on Foot.” In addition to “Aguirre, the Wrath of God,” Herzog has created a number of acclaimed films including “Fitzcarraldo,” and “Grizzly Man.” At noon on Friday, David Walker will give a plenary talk called “Comeback America: Turning the Country Around and Restoring Fiscal Responsibility. Walker is the CEO of the Peter G. Peterson Foundation, where he focuses on promoting federal fiscal responsibility.The Conference will close with the annual Molly Ivins Freedom Fightin’ Memorial Plenary at 2:30 p.m. in Macky Auditorium. This year, John Hockenberry, host of “The Takeaway,” will address the topic “Where Have All the Powers Gone.”Finally, the annual jazz concert continues to grow in popularity. This year, advance ticketing will be required in order to manage the maximum capacity event. The concert remains free and open to the public although the ticketing agent will institute a service charge of $1 per ticket to cover administrative fees. Volunteers from the Boulder community and campus are integral to pulling off the logistics of the yearly conference. Local residents house the participants and hundreds of other volunteers provide local transportation, coordinate panels and manage crowds at the events. Students in particular are an integral part of nearly every aspect of the Conference. Leading the students’ efforts this year are Bryan New and Lynne Feingold, who coordinate over 60 student volunteers in positions from coordinating panels to managing transportation. Feingold started as a student driver in 2007 and has been involved in numerous aspects of the Conference since then. Through her involvement, Feingold said she has been exposed to marketing, student volunteer management, and digital media and graphics design. “I love the CWA because the opportunities to contribute are endless — I’ve learned so much.”Two of the student volunteers, Rena Goldstein and Darby Shier, manage a fleet of 14 vehicles and 50 student volunteers, making sure that each participant has transportation to the airport and a way to and from campus each day. “We coordinate the transportation for all our participants,” explains Shier. “It’s cool to have so much responsibility in such an influential organization.” CU-Boulder students are allowed priority access to most events and are invited to meet with Conference participants at a free brunch on April 5 at 10:30 a.m. on the Norlin Quadrangle. All students will receive free breakfast burritos with a student ID and will be able to chat with attendees from West Point, National Public Radio, Dwell Magazine and the U.S. Foreign Service.Members of the public attending the Conference on World Affairs are encouraged to use public transportation, as there is no event parking on campus. Those driving are encouraged to park for free on the third level of the Macy’s parking structure at the Twenty Ninth Street shopping mall in Boulder, located on the southwest corner of 30th Street and Walnut Street, and take the free HOP bus to campus.The HOP bus will run on its normal route arriving every 7 to 10 minutes between the hours of 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. The two stops nearest the Macy’s parking structure are at 29th Street and Walnut Street and 30th Street and Walnut Street.For a complete schedule and more information visit the Conference on World Affairs’ Web site at http://www.colorado.edu/cwa.

Nakpack® was among the first in Italy to obtain the important UPS certification for the shipment of bottles.Nakpack® was effectively launched in Italy in 2011 and it is the only system of its kind to allow a single model of packaging to be used with various bottle types and formats, from Champagne and Bordeaux to Borgognotta and Renana, through Marasca and Amphora.
