It has operated in India since 1858 and has 100 branches there.HSBC has previously said it will “evaluate” the option, while Citi have ruled it out.The bank is heavily focused on Asian markets, and new chief executive Bill Winters said in June he was planning a structural shake-up to hand more power over to the regional hubs, including Singapore, Hong Kong and India.Winter’s plan is to deliver some $1.8bn (£1.2bn) of savings by the end of 2017 to offset slowing emerging markets.This includes streamlining the regional structure, reducing the number of regions from eight to four: Greater China and north Asia, Southeast and South Asia, Africa and the Middle East and Europe and the Americas.

Insys ignored warnings about marketing powerful opioid Subsys

The conversation — in which the employee pretended to call from a physician’s office — was about a woman named Sarah Fuller, whose family later claimed she died because she was inappropriately prescribed the drug.The phone call was made scarcely a year after a consultant warned the drug maker that it lacked needed policies for governing such activities, but Insys executives failed to take corrective action, according to U.S. Sen.

CEOs got a pass in 2019, but they need to grow profits soon

first_imgConcept of success and failure with businessman on statistics bar Related news Economy lost 68,000 jobs in May Keywords Earnings,  Economic forecasts Share this article and your comments with peers on social media That’s normally a warning sign for the market because stock prices tend to follow the path of corporate earnings over the long term. Last year was notable not only because investors sent the S&P 500 to one of its best annual returns in decades, but because they did so while profits were slumping.Investors are likely to give CEOs another pass this upcoming earnings season, which got underway this week with reports from JPMorgan Chase and other high-profile banks.Last year was a particularly tough one for companies to deliver big growth because they were no longer getting the benefit of the first year of lower tax rates, as they did in 2018. Investors were also more willing to look past the struggles because the Federal Reserve was in the midst of a sharp U-turn in policy, as it cut interest rates three times.But in 2020, companies will need to deliver more. That’s why many investors will be paying more attention to what CEOs say about 2020 trends than about how much they made in the last three months.“It all boils down to the guidance for 2020,” said Rich Weiss, senior portfolio manager at American Century Investments. “Can we get something more than 5% earnings growth this coming year, which arguably is going to be necessary to move this market higher? Where is that growth going to come from?”Analysts are predicting a pickup in profits through the year, but they have a long history of making optimistic forecasts only to reel them in as reporting dates approach. Wall Street is currently calling for 9.4% earnings growth for S&P 500 companies over the course of the year, following a relatively slow start, according to FactSet.Linda Duessel, senior equity strategist at Federated Investors, is optimistic earnings growth can accelerate, especially in the second half of the year, as the effect of lower interest rates filters through the economy. The three rate cuts by the Federal Reserve last year between August and October followed years of raising rates. Lower rates make borrowing cheaper and can goose economic activity, but often with a time lag.“Around the globe and especially in China, there have been all these easing actions, and it can take one to two years to make its way into the economy,” she said. “That’s good news to see this stuff come through.”Another factor in favour of stronger earnings is that that the U.S.-China trade war seems to no longer be getting worse, at least for now. The world’s two largest economies signed “Phase 1” of their trade deal on Wednesday in Washington. While that didn’t solve all their disputes, the hope is that tariffs won’t escalate further and weigh on global economic growth.Investors still need to see a clear roadmap for improvements, and soon. Liz Ann Sonders, chief investment strategist at Charles Schwab, said she will be listening in particular to what CEOs say about how they’re dealing with tariffs already in place in the U.S.-China trade war.“The market is going to start to require that we get some earnings,” she said. “At some point, earnings will have to rise.” Stan ChoeAssociated Press OECD raises outlook for Canadian economic growth this year Facebook LinkedIn Twitter CEOs, you get one more mulligan.Over the next few weeks, companies across the country will be telling investors how much profit they made in the last three months of 2019. Analysts along Wall Street are setting expectations very low, again. They’re forecasting a fourth-straight quarter of falling profits by S&P 500 companies, according to FactSet, something that hasn’t happened since 2015-2016.

Pandemic saps Canada’s population growth

first_img A deadly first wave, followed by a tsunami of excess deaths Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Keywords Pandemics,  Coronavirus,  Seniors Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Related news Ontario unlikely to balance budget by 2030: FAO Covid-19 is having a dramatic impact on Canada’s demographics. The combination of more deaths and, more importantly, the choking off of immigration, has downshifted the population growth rate from a record high to a record low, according to the latest data from Statistics Canada.Canada’s population topped the 38-million mark for the first time in the second quarter, StatsCan reported, but it was only up 0.1% from the previous quarter. By comparison, the growth rate in the third quarter of 2019 was 0.6% — which was the highest level since comparable records began in 1971.StatsCan said that the plunging growth rate is largely due to the imposition of border restrictions starting in March, which has hammered immigration — the primary source of Canadian population growth.“The resulting decrease in migration from March to June, combined with the excess mortality, led to record low population growth for the second quarter of 2020,” StatsCan said.In Q2, Canada added just 25,384 new people, compared with over 208,000 in Q3 2019.At the same time, the aging of the Canadian population has continued unabated.The average age in Canada ticked up to 41.4 years as of July 1, the share of the population aged over 65 continued rising to 18%, and the number of those aged over 100 hit a new record level (11,517), StatsCan said.While most of the deaths from Covid-19 have been in those aged over 80, the proportion of octogenarian deaths remains relatively small — 6,164 deaths in a population of 1.66 million, the agency reported.Similarly, the drop in immigration, while critical to Canada’s growth rate, isn’t large enough in the context of the overall population to impact its age structure, StatsCan noted.“Neither the changes in the number of deaths nor those linked to international migration were significant compared with the overall size of the population,” StatsCan said.Given the continued aging of the population, the gap between the number of seniors and the number of children continues to widen, StatsCan reported, with seniors now accounting for 18% of the population, while children make up 15.9% of the population.“It is projected that the number and share of seniors will continue to increase over the next few decades,” StatsCan said.According to the agency’s latest projections, “seniors could account for over one-fifth of the population by 2025 and could reach one-quarter by 2059.”Meanwhile, the proportion of children is expected to remain around 15% to 16% over the same period, it said.StatsCan also reported that Canada’s total fertility rate hit a record low in 2019.The total fertility rate — the number of children women are having over the course of their reproductive lives — declined to 1.47 births per woman in 2019.The rate has been below the replacement rate of 2.1 — the fertility rate needed for the population to replace itself — since 1971, StatsCan said.“With the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, it is possible that birth rates may have changed. In addition, if immigration levels were to fall, fertility rates would become more important for population growth to be sustained,” StatsCan said.

On behalf of the Government, I offer my condolences to his family, friends and many associates.”“May the soul of Keith Shervington rest in peace.” RelatedSports Minister Grange Expresses Regret at the Passing of SDF Board Member Keith Shervingtoncenter_img Sports Minister Grange Expresses Regret at the Passing of SDF Board Member Keith Shervington SportFebruary 13, 2009 Advertisementslast_img read more

General Aviation in UK

first_imgGeneral Aviation in UK General Aviation (GA) is often referred to as the ‘grassroots’ of aviation and is the bedrock to our successful and world-leading aviation sector.It’s worth nearly £4 billion to the UK economy, supporting nearly 40,000 jobs. The hundreds of aerodromes up and down the country form an important part of the nation’s transport infrastructure.General Aviation provides the entry point for careers in aviation and is fundamental to inspiring the next generation of aviation professionals. It supports vital services from law enforcement to life-saving airborne medical and search and rescue teams, and provides future pilots, engineers and other highly skilled professionals a first glimpse of a potential career in aviation.Therefore, it is only right that the government’s vision is for the UK to be the best place in the world for General Aviation as a flourishing, wealth-generating and job-producing sector of the economy. Our ambitions remain high and we have set out our priorities and how we can achieve these in the government’s General Aviation Roadmap, which I am pleased to announce. The roadmap sets out our vision and strategic priorities for the sector, alongside our ambitious programme of work that will help us to deliver this. We will work alongside the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and our GA stakeholders to achieve these ambitions.I also wish to set out the government’s view that it is clear from the success of our aviation sector there is a national need to protect and enhance our strategic network of GA airfields – to ensure they continue to prosper and drive the economic growth this country needs and to support levelling up right across the country.Airfields offer potential for highly skilled, dynamic and innovative businesses to grow and flourish – for manufacturing and maintenance of aircraft, aviation services, and for research and innovation.At the heart of these efforts, we will work with airfields to strengthen their economic and strategic value both locally, regionally and nationally by supporting their development, and promoting mixed-use where there are benefits from offering their unique infrastructure to the wider community including for business, education, cultural and recreational activities. There are already several airfields within the UK, which share their infrastructure with a wide range of industries, as well as providing vital services to other government services. These airfields andmany more are not just important to their local economies, but also critical to the success of the aviation sector.General Aviation will also play a crucial part in our government’s focus on innovation and decarbonisation. Trialling, testing and rolling out the next generation of zero emission technologies within General Aviation will support their development and pave the way for their wider adoption in larger commercial-scale operations – supporting decarbonisation of the wider sector and economy. This will help us reach our net zero target by 2050.More widely, many aerodromes have been affiliated with operations during World Wars 1 and 2 and have since hosted heritage assets through the form of museums or have become designated historical sites. It is important these sites, which are so important to our heritage are able to thrive and grow to be enjoyed and appreciated by generations to come.Our aviation heritage is rich, deep and rightly a source of great national pride. Looking forward, the government’s vision is for the UK to be the best place in the world for General Aviation as a flourishing, wealth generating and job-producing sector of the economy. /Public Release.

East Central St. James Celebrates GSAT Passes

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Minister of Tourism and Member of Parliament for East Central St. James, the Hon. Edmund Bartlett, has awarded book grants, trophies and other prizes, valued at $2.5 million, to some 125 students from the constituency, who excelled in the recent Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT). The presentations took place at the Annual GSAT Awards Ceremony at the Montego Bay Civic Centre, Wednesday (July 21). Minister of Tourism and Member of Parliament for East Central St. James, Hon. Edmund Bartlett, interacting with students participating in the 13th Annual GSAT awards ceremony at the Montego Bay Civic Centre, in St. James, on July 21. Special awards and cash presentations of $25,000 each were made to the most outstanding boy and girl – Akyhiem Allen of Buckingham All-Age and Jendayi Linton of Dumfries Primary. They were also presented with the Edmund Bartlett Trophy for Academic Excellence, which they will share for the rest of the academic year. In addressing the large number of students and parents attending the ceremony, Mr. Bartlett said that, in addition to making over $3 million available this year for all students engaged in the GSAT examination, some $1 million would also be made available, from his Constituency Development Fund (CDF), to prepare students at the Grade 4 level to reap greater successes in GSAT. Mr. Bartlett told JIS News that the programme is financed through fundraising events and supplemented by his CDF contribution. “This year we plan to spend an extra million dollars on the Grade 4 level, the objective of which is to double this year’s performance in two years; meaning, that the GSAT students for 2012 must give a result of at least 250 passes in the constituency, with at least 50 attaining between 90 and 100 per cent pass levels,” he said. Students from John Rollins Success Primary School in Rose Hall, St. James, performing a dance during the the 13th Annual GSAT awards ceremony at the Montego Bay Civic Centre, in St. James, on July 21. Mr. Bartlett stated that after consultations, he has concluded that special attention should be paid to Grade 4 level in all schools in the constituency this year, to ensure that they have the requirements to enable them to master literacy and numeracy so that when the students get to Grade Six (the GSAT level) it will be smooth sailing and far better grades. He congratulated the students on their achievements, and assured them of his support in their future educational developments. “This year, I am a proud Member of Parliament, as some 123 students achieved between 80 and 100 per cent, and I assure you that this is a record in my 13 years in this constituency,” the Minister said.

He noted that, of the 123, 21 had averages of 90 and over and 102 had averages of 80 and over. The top school was John Rollins Success Primary and the top performing boy and girl Akyhiem Allen and Jendayi Linton scored 95 per cent averages. Mr. Bartlett emphasised that when the schools are properly equipped and managed, students can move from ‘zero performance to hero performance’. “It has been for me the greatest sense of pride to carry this programme over the years . knowing that we may not be able to provide for all the needs of the constituency, but I think that if we can empower you and ensure that your capacity for learning can be expanded each day, then we would have achieved our objectives,” he said.

Senate Judiciary moves ‘felony settlement conferences’ bill

first_img Sen. Jeff BrandesThe Senate Judiciary Committee has approved a measure that would authorize the courts to conduct “felony settlement conferences.”The panel voted 11-0 on March 15 to approve SB 1346 by Judiciary Chair Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg.“The point here is to allow the state attorney and the public defender, or private defense counsel, to exchange offers, without prejudicing the trial court judge,” Brandes said.Under the bill, a felony settlement conference judge must be a retired judge or an attorney who has no other involvement in the pending matter. The trial judge would be forbidden from presiding over a felony settlement conference.Brandes stressed that the measure is “permissive” and does not mandate the use of the proceedings, but merely expands a pilot program that has proven successful in the 11th Judicial Circuit.Settlement conferences are common in the civil arena, but rarely used in criminal matters, where 97.7% of cases in Florida resulted in a plea negotiation in 2019-2020, according to a Senate analysis.Defense counsel and judges would be the most likely to request felony settlement conferences, Brandes acknowledged. The measure has the support of the Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.Sen. Darryl Rouson, D-St. Petersburg and a lawyer, said he was concerned about the potential impact on victims.Brandes replied that some victims might object, but he added that others could benefit by a swifter resolution of the case.“For some, it may be a better outcome,” he said. “I’m sure some may struggle with it.”The measure has two more committees, Criminal Justice and Rules, before reaching the Senate floor.

While this has impacted its size and design, it may improve the appeal of BlackBerry’s Android efforts for die-hard BlackBerry users.But with its Android line gaining the key design features of its BlackBerry 10 portfolio, the reason for the existence of the latter becomes less apparent. While the company has said it remains committed to its own platform, no new devices are expected using it in the near future.While a new release of BlackBerry 10 is scheduled for early next year, it makes little sense for the company to continue supporting its development if its device focus has shifted to Android – and BlackBerry has made a lot of effort to cut its coat according to its cloth in recent years.
