Aviva hunts for Sharman’s replacement

first_img KCS-content INSURANCE group Aviva has begun its search for a new chairman in time for Colin Sharman’s planned departure in 2013, people close to the company confirmed yesterday. Potential candidates for the job include former Aviva chief executive Richard Harvey, outgoing Barclays chief executive John Varley and ex-financial services minister Paul Myners. Myners declined to comment, while Harvey and Varley did not return calls for comment yesterday. People close to Aviva said yesterday that Sharman was not under pressure to step down, and that the search was still in its early stages. “It’s all part of sensible forward planning for a successor for any FTSE company,” one source said. Reports claimed the insurer has appointed headhunters MWM Consulting and JCA Associates to sound out potential replacements. However, neither firm would comment yesterday, and a source said the search had not yet reached the stage of hiring headhunters. Aviva declined to comment. Sharman, 67, has been chairman of the firm since January 2006, after joining the board in 2005. He was appointed to the House of Lords in 1999. His departure will be one of several high profile reshuffles at the top of FTSE 100 firms. HSBC and Vodafone are also hunting for replacement bosses, while Barclays named Bob Diamond as its new head last week. whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.com whatsapp Sharecenter_img Tags: NULL Aviva hunts for Sharman’s replacement Show Comments ▼ Thursday 16 September 2010 8:47 pm More From Our Partners Native American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April raidnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comlast_img read more

Message to National Day of Mourning 2020 from Leonard Peltier

first_imgGreetings my relatives, friends, loved ones and supporters, First of all, I want to thank you for the privilege of being allowed to express my feelings about this “Day of Mourning,” as we call it, and “Day of Thanksgiving,” as the rest of the U.S. calls it. Sometimes I’m at a loss for words to express all the thoughts I have going on in my head after 45 years of imprisonment. I do want to express my appreciation for our ancestors before us, who fought so hard that we would live today. I want to express my feelings of remembrance for the ones who were overpowered by the weapons of war coming from Europe and the pandemics they faced. Though we have been attacked by the invaders from Europe, over and over in every way possible, and everything that has been done to destroy us, our culture and traditions, we still survived until today because we are an expression of the Creator’s Will and an expression of the Creator’s Truth. We are a manifestation of that truth, that all mankind should live within the boundaries of those laws. There is nothing that came from Europe that has made this portion of the Earth a better place to live, but like all nature, we have survived. And nature continues to survive, though mankind is on the edge of destroying itself. The truths that our people spoke of, the need to live in harmony with each other, the Creator, the Mother Earth, and respect one another’s approach to spirituality — when expressed by non-Indians becomes a sensation around the world. We must continue to speak our truth, to live our truth and to support one another, for there lies our survival. The most powerful weapons that we can obtain are knowledge of truth and love for one another, and the practice of that truth and love. We must unite and work together every chance we can and embrace all others who are of like mind and willing to work to correct this worldwide pandemic of greed and selfishness that has infected the whole earth and mankind. On this Day of Mourning, let us again remember our relatives before us, who fought every challenge imaginable that we might survive, and in our prayers say “Thanks for not giving up. Thanks for giving your lives that we might live.” And to all of you out there, I want to say thanks for not giving up on me and my quest for freedom. May the Creator bless you in every way. Your brother always, in all ways. In the Spirit of Crazy Horse and Resistance, Mitakuye Oyasin, Doksha, Leonard PeltierNational Day of Mourning, Plymouth, Mass., Nov. 26.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Mortgage Leaders Form COVID-19 Industry Task Force

first_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Mortgage Leaders Form COVID-19 Industry Task Force Subscribe in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Headlines, News Coronavirus 2020-03-13 Mike Albanese Share Save Sign up for DS News Daily Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Mortgage Leaders Form COVID-19 Industry Task Force The nation continues to deal with the ongoing pandemic outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, and sources report that President Donald Trump plans to declare a state of national emergency later today. To support homeowners and address the industry impact that COVID-19 may have, under the direction of the National Mortgage Servicing Association (NMSA), leaders from across the mortgage industry are joining forces to create the COVID-19 Mortgage Industry Task Force (ITF) to coordinate on processes, procedures, and policies related to the crisis.“The economic struggles brought on by COVID-19 are purely a health crisis, and any industry response must be formulated as such,” said Ed Delgado, President and CEO of Five Star Global. “The U.S. continues to demonstrate record-low unemployment, strong GDP growth, and sufficient liquidity to withstand the impacts from this disease. Now is the time to focus on practical solutions for both the near-term and long-term impacts of COVID-19, in order to assist homeowners and to ensure the stability of the American housing market.”Wes Iseley, Senior Managing Director, Carrington Mortgage Holdings, Chairman, NMSA, said, “It’s important during crises like this that our industry work together to help our customers in unison. It is our goal to work with the relevant government agencies in order to develop best practices that will enable all parties to get through this difficult period.”More than 25 mortgage banks and nonbank servicers, legal professionals, and service providers will take part in the coalition.Leadership from the Legal League 100 is also providing context to the discussions, represented by Legal League 100 Chair Roy Diaz, Managing Shareholder of Diaz Anselmo Lindberg, P.A.While the Mortgage Industry Task Force is part of widespread and ongoing response to COVID-19, the housing market is well-positioned to weather this storm. The market remains in a sustained period of historically low foreclosures. CoreLogic reported last month that the nation’s delinquency rate was 3.9% in November 2019—the lowest November reading in more than two decades.The share of delinquent mortgages in November historically peaked in 2009 at 11.5%. Since March 2018, the overall delinquency rate each month has been lower than the pre-crisis period from 2000 to 2006. The rate averaged 4.7% during that time.On Wednesday, President Donald Trump welcomed leaders from the nation’s largest banks to the Oval Office. Among them, Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan said banks are in a “great position” to face this crisis, with adequate capital and liquidity.He added that banks want to help all Americans and offer relief to consumers, especially those who have been forced out of work due to the disease.Citigroup CEO Michael Corbat added to those comments, saying, “This is not a financial crisis.”Corbat addressed that there is a great deal of fear with recent talks of recession, but said banks are ready and able to provide liquidity. He also said that the markets are currently in a “discovery phase” as all parties grapple with the spread of COVID-19 and its impact .”We’re here to help,” Corbat said.In a statement earlier this week, Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) Director Mark Calabria also addressed how the FHFA, as well as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, are focusing their response by providing guidance to servicers.“To meet the needs of borrowers who may be impacted by the coronavirus, last week Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac reminded mortgage servicers that hardship forbearance is an option for borrowers who are unable to make their monthly mortgage payment,” Calabria said. “For borrowers that may be experiencing a hardship, I encourage you to reach out to your servicer. The Enterprises and the Federal Home Loan Banks continue to provide support to the secondary mortgage market, and the UMBS market continues to operate at its normal level.”Congresswoman and Chair of the House Financial Services Committee Maxine Waters (D-California) led six letters to Administration officials, regulators, financial services organizations, and credit reporting agencies expressing concerns about risks related to COVID-19 and the steps they are taking to prevent consumers and the financial system from being harmed.”Today, I and Members of the Committee have sent letters to the Department of the Treasury, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Federal Reserve), the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), a number of financial industry trade associations, and the major consumer credit reporting bureaus, all to ensure that Americans are protected from the potential negative financial impacts of the coronavirus pandemic,” Waters said. “The Committee will be holding bipartisan staff briefings from the Administration, regulators, market participants, economists, and stakeholders, and we will convene a full Committee hearing this month on the readiness of our financial system to weather a pandemic.”She added that it is “unacceptable” to use the current crisis to justify rollbacks of financial regulations that are in place to the financial system and the economy.To see all our COVID-19 coverage, click here.

Officer accused of killing man in wrong apartment is fired: Chief

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(DALLAS) — A Dallas police officer charged with manslaughter in the wrong apartment fatal shooting of a man was fired Monday morning, according to an email sent by Police Chief Rene Hall.Officer Amber Guyger, 30, “engaged in adverse conduct” when she fatally shot Botham Jean, 26, at his apartment on the night of Sept. 6, Hall said in her email.Hall said her decision to fire Guyger was made after an internal affairs investigation concluded on Sept. 9.“Officer Guyger was terminated for her actions,” Hall said in her email.She said Guyger, who was hired by the police force in November 2013, has a right under civil service rules to appeal her discipline, Hall said.Guyger’s dismissal came just 10 days after Jean held a news conference and called for Guyger to be fired immediately.Lee Merritt, an attorney for the Jean family, said Hall spoke with the victim’s family and attorneys in a conference call on Sunday to tell them she intended to fire Guyger and explained why there was a delay in the action.“Specifically she explained that a premature administrative suspension could have possibly implicated Guyger’s fifth amendment protections and compromised the criminal prosecution,” Merritt said. “The Jean family expressed satisfaction in this explanation and in Guyger’s termination.”He described the move by Hall “as an initial victory,” noting that the decision was announced on the same day Botham Jean was buried in his native country, the Caribbean island of St. Lucia.“However, we are committed to seeing through the next steps of the process of a proper murder indictment, conviction and appropriate sentencing,” Merritt said.Merritt said his office is conducting a parallel investigation of the shooting and is preparing to file a wrongful death civil lawsuit against Guyger and City of Dallas.Merritt and other attorneys for the Jean family — Benjamin Crump and Daryl Washington — also released a joint statement praising the dismissal of Guyger as “a first step towards justice for Botham Shem Jean.”“As Botham Shem Jean’s family has his homegoing service in St. Lucia this week, this announcement of Amber Guyger’s termination from the Dallas Police Department is bittersweet for Botham’s family,” the attorneys said in a statement.Guyger’s lawyer did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings said he supported Hall’s decision to terminate Guyger.“I have heard the calls for this action from many, including the Jean family, and I agree that this is the right decision in the interest of justice for Botham Jean and the citizens of Dallas,” Rawlings said in a statement.“The swift termination of any officer who engages in misconduct that leads to the loss of innocent life is essential if the Dallas Police Department is to gain and maintain the public trust,” the mayor said. “I know Chief Hall agrees with me on that and I appreciate her leadership. Once again, she’s made the right call.”Jean — who worked at PricewaterhouseCoopers, a multinational professional services firm with an office in Dallas — was killed when Guyger mistook his apartment for her own and shot him when she opened the ajar door of the unit and saw a “large silhouette” that she thought was a burglar, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.Guyger was arrested and charged with manslaughter three days after the shooting but Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson said a grand jury will decide the ultimate charge. She has not ruled out seeking a murder indictment.Earlier this month, Kaufman County Sheriff’s Office released video of Guyger behind bars in handcuffs and jail attire. She does not speak during the video and was later released after posting $300,000 bond.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

USA: NAVSUP GLS Changes Command

first_img View post tag: changes May 16, 2014 Back to overview,Home naval-today USA: NAVSUP GLS Changes Command Rear Adm. James R. McNeal relieved Rear Adm. Vincent L. Griffith as commander. He recently served as NAVSUP GLS deputy commander.Griffith’s next assignment will be as director, Logistics Operations (J3), Defense Logistics Agency. NAVSUP GLS, a San Diego based component of the Naval Supply Systems Command in Mechanicsburg, Pa., is headquarters for a network of eight Fleet Logistics Centers around the globe, from Yokosuka, Japan, across the United States, to Sigonella, Italy and Bahrain.As the “logistics face to the fleet,” NAVSUP GLS and its global logistics centers provide an extensive array of integrated global logistics and contract services to the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps, joint operational units and allied forces across all warfare enterprises around the world.Rear Adm. Jonathan Yuen, commander, Naval Supply Systems Command, and chief of Supply Corps, served as guest speaker for the historic change of command in which, for the first time in its history, the relieving commander is affiliated with the U.S. Navy Reserve.In addition to his previous Navy role as deputy commander, NAVSUP GLS, McNeal remains a well-known local business executive in San Diego.Opening the ceremony, Yuen addressed the NAVSUP GLS employees’ roles supporting the warfighter.“As the leader of NAVSUP, I am focused on answering the question, ‘Can you fight?’ That question does not mean can you pick up a gun and pull the trigger, necessarily,” Yuen said. “Can you fight’ means in larger terms, as an organization and as an individual, what are you doing to enable our country to do its business and conduct missions around the world, and do that in an ethical and judicious manner.”“The Navy is entrusted with billions of dollars and hundreds of thousands of people-our nation’s treasures,” Yuen continued.“We must ensure we protect and utilize these treasures not only within established rules and procedures, but just as importantly strive to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the resources.”Outgoing NAVSUP GLS Commander, Rear Adm. Griffith, said working with the NAVSUP GLS team was the highlight of his tenure at NAVSUP GLS.“When I assumed command of NAVSUP GLS, I knew I was joining an elite team of logisticians – both military and civilian,” Griffith said. “This team is talented, committed and tenacious, and support for the warfighter has been center stage in all of our business lines.”“Today, after a short, but extremely rewarding tour as your commander, I have only the highest respect for each member of this team. Together, you have embodied three enablers of success that have been critical to me throughout my career: Empathy, Empowerment and Collaboration. You have built and nurtured a culture of dignity and mutual respect here at NAVSUP GLS.Griffith concluded, “Today, we are welcoming in Adm. McNeal, a leader who, in my observation, exemplifies these key leadership traits. On top of his many years’ of experience as a Supply Corps officer, Jim also brings a wealth of commercial experience to the table. I have every confidence in Adm. McNeal’s ability to build NAVSUP GLS into an even greater, effective, efficient and strategic partner with our fleet forces and shore customers and warfighters around the globe.”[mappress]Press Release, May 16, 2014; Image: U.S. Navy Authorities The U.S. Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) Global Logistics Support (GLS) held a change of command ceremony aboard the USS Midway Museum, May 15.
