No InstallTaonga: The Island Farm BARCLAYS is tomorrow expected to reveal that investment banking income plunged in the third quarter as trading activity declined, though impairments may fall due to an improved outlook in Spain.Barclays Capital, the investment banking arm led by Bob Diamond, who is due to take over from John Varley as chief executive next year, is expected by analysts to post revenues of around £2.8bn, down around a sixth quarter-on-quarter. That would tie in with the bank’s peers in the UK and US, which have been hit across the board by a slowdown in activity.But analysts expect impairments to have improved compared to the first half of the year, when the weak property market in Spain caused bad debt charges to rocket. Morgan Stanley forecasts £1.3bn of impairments in the third quarter, compared to a guidance range provided by the bank of between £6.5bn and £6.9bn for the full year.Compensation is likely to again prove a thorny issue for Barclays, which is expected to set aside around £1.5bn in a compensation pot for its investment bankers in the quarter despite the relatively weaker performance.The payout – which does not become formalised until the end-of-year results in February – comes after Barclays decided to double the salaries of some of its more senior investment bankers, in order to retain talent by compensating for the regulatory restrictions placed on discretionary bonuses.

The purchase of privately held Headstrong, which gets most of its sales from the capital markets, will help Genpact’s banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI) business as the economy recovers from the recession. “BFSI has slightly better margins than the rest of Genpact’s business,” chief executive Pramod Bhasin said. The deal, Genpact’s biggest yet, is the second-largest this year by an Indian IT services company, following iGate’s purchase of Patni Computer Systems for $1.2m.

The Genedrive share price is falling so here’s what I’m doing now

More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. One stock that I noticed fall in price substantially yesterday is Genedrive (LSE:GDR). The Genedrive share price is down almost 30% after it announced half-year results.Genedrive is a molecular diagnostics firm that develops and commercialises low cost, rapid, versatile, simple to use molecular diagnostics platforms for the diagnosis of infectious diseases. These are used in patient stratification. Its developments have been validated and launched in Africa and the Asia Pacific region. It also has distribution agreements for the use of its platforms in EMEA.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The Genedrive share priceThe past 12 months have been a roller-coaster ride for the Genedrive share price. Just over a year ago today, it was trading for less than 25p per share. At the time of the market crash, its shares were up to 220p, which is a five-year high. As I write, I can purchase shares for less than 70p per share. At the beginning of trading yesterday, the Genedrive share price was over 115p.Since that point, however, things have been quite up and down. I do believe Genedrive is a stock which has potential and with its recent slump and past highs, there may be an opportunity to add it to my portfolio cheaply.Upon reviewing its results for the six months to 31 December, I must admit I was disappointed. I believe this is the reason the Genedrive share price has dropped off since the results were announced yesterday.Half-year resultsGenedrive reported total revenues of £400,000 for the six-month period. This is down from £600,00 compared to the same period last year. As a result, its operating loss rose to £2.9m from £2.6m which is disappointing. As of 15 March, cash stood at just less than £3m. There was an R&D tax credit of £1m still outstanding too.Genedrive’s results were in part due to delays and the pandemic affecting sales. A prime example of this was a contract with the US Department of Defense stalling somewhat that has suppressed progress in what could have been extremely lucrative. Further impact of the Covid-19 pandemic relates to Genedrive’s Covid-19 testing kit. Progress has slowed down as it awaits regulatory approval from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).As well as less than stellar results, these other aspects have weighed on the Genedrive share price in recent times in my opinion.What I’m doing nowI must note there are positives to take from its recent update. The firm is now debt-free which is always an attractive trait for any company. In addition, there are commercial contracts in which Genedrive is involved that are producing results. There is a distribution agreement with Beckman Coulter Life Sciences as well as an opportunity with the European Ministry of Health that could bring in millions in revenue.Overall I am not tempted by the falling Genedrive share price. I will keep an eye on developments, however. Right now, I won’t be investing my hard-earned cash. I am look at other alternatives such as this FTSE 100 stock, which I believe could be a great opportunity.

Photo/Janet Mitchell[Episcopal News Service] Harsh weather conditions and extreme storm warnings are nothing new for the residents of Kivalina, but the late summer’s heavy rains and subsequent rising water levels have left the island community without clean water and delayed the start of school locally.“According to a friend, NOAA [National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration] had predicted a few months back that they expected 2012 weather systems to be on the extreme side. That prepared some of us mentally to expect worse than usual weather patterns, but we take it for granted that the weather is just going to be stronger than normal,” said Colleen E. Swan, a member of Kivalina Epiphany Episcopal Church and Kivalina Church Women treasurer, in an e-mail to ENS.“I never gave much thought to what may come with it, such as having our water pumping system fall into the water and not being able to fill our water holding tanks. I never thought that more rain water meant less drinking water or that our school start-up would be cancelled ‘til further notice,” she continued.Heavy rains flooded the community’s landfill and damaged its water system, which includes a pipeline that carries drinking water from the nearby Wulik River to the village’s two water-storage tanks, according to news reports and updates to the Kivalina Water Facebook page.“… we lost part of our pipes into the river, as well as the concrete block holding the end up by the mouth of the river. We cannot pump until we find new pipes but we have no monies to purchase any,” said Janet Mitchell, a city administrator and secretary of the Kivalina Epiphany Church Mission Committee in an Aug. 29 post on the Facebook page.The onset of winter may further complicate repairs, said Mitchell in a CNBC News story Sept. 5.In addition to the water tanks, the pipeline supplies water to village’s school and its teacher housing. School was scheduled to start on Aug. 20, and according to news reports, school officials expect school to begin in Kivalina by Oct. 1. (While the school, the teacher housing, the washeteria and the health clinic have running water, residents of Kivalina don’t have indoor plumbing in their homes and carry potable water from storage tanks.)The village of Kivalina sits on the tip of a six- to eight-mile-long barrier island – a quarter-mile at its widest – some 80 to 120 miles above the Arctic Circle between the Chukchi Sea and the Kivalina Lagoon in Alaska. It is home to about 400 Inupiat people and reachable only by plane and boat in the summer and plane, and snowmobile in winter.“We are in a catch-22 situation where the community needs the fresh water from the rain. But at the same time, all of this rain is also causing a delay in filling the water tanks because of the high turbidity level. And that was the situation till more rain came and damaged the water pumping system. I fail to understand why the state of Alaska has not declared a disaster, especially when this situation has caused our school to remain closed,” said Swan.Kivalina and the Northwest Arctic Borough, a regional governing body, both have declared the situation a disaster, the borough’s declaration made emergency funds available for the purchase of drinking water. The Diocese of Alaska also sent $1,000 to Kivalina for the purchase of drinking water, according to a Facebook post by Mitchell.“Once again our family in Kivalina is struggling against the forces of nature. Consistent with the spirit of a people who have thrived for centuries in one of the harshest climates inhabited by humankind, the people of Kivalina are working to provide for their village despite yet another unique natural ‘disaster,’” said Diocese of Alaska Bishop Mark Lattime.“People who know the story of the village of Kivalina, understand that the village is slowly eroding into the ocean. The process of erosion is accelerating with the loss of sea ice caused by warming oceans. Recently, however, Kivalina is facing rising waters and flooding due to an unprecedented weather pattern that has brought rainfall to the area for several weeks. So far rainfall has exceeded 12 inches. The result has been the complete breakdown of the community’s fresh water supply.”Not only has the flooding washed away the pump that draws fresh water from the river source that supplies the village, but the flood has also caused the river to become too turbid to filter, making it impossible, or useless, to drawn water from the river by hand. Adding to the challenge, the village’s power generation plant, in an effort to provide lower-cost electricity, has been burning “used” oil. The result is that the exhaust from the plant has made gathering rain water also impractical as runoff from roofs is polluted by soot—the byproduct of burning used oil, Lattime added.The children of Kivalina have been evacuated to Kotzebue, a regional hub, where they can attend school while the village works to restore its water resource. The school in Kivalina remains closed, said Lattime.“Despite on-site inspections by the [U.S.] Department of Homeland Security and the governor [of Alaska], Kivalina has been left to address the problem on their own. However, just as it requires enormous cooperation to successfully hunt a bowhead whale, the traditional food source of these Inupiat people, the people of Kivalina are working together to solve their water crisis. The plan is to coordinate volunteers using ATVs and small boats to travel up the Kivalina River to find areas where the water is less turbid and able to be properly filtered for human consumption. These volunteers will collect the water in portable containers and, upon returning to the village, the water will be used to refill the community water tank.“Monumental task? You bet. Will they succeed at it? Most certainly,” said Lattime.  “Monumental tasks that require cooperation and hard work define the traditional spirit of the people of Kivalina. Nevertheless, they can use help. Mostly they need financial resources to help purchase fuel for the equipment they are using to get to the clear water. The price of gasoline in Kivalina is over $6 per gallon, and it will take hundreds of gallons of fuel to make enough trips to refill the community water tank.”The Diocese of Alaska, after consulting with the leadership in Kivalina and asking them what they needed, contributed $1,000 to aide their efforts. It is certain that they could use more financial support until their fresh water system is back in full operation and the river has settled, said Lattime.“Then they can return to working on a solution to the slow erosion of their island home,” he said.Early this summer at the 77th General Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana, Austin Swan Sr., a deputy from the Diocese of Alaska, and a resident of Kivalina, shared his firsthand experience with climate change and its threat to the community’s continued existence during a hearing on Resolution B023.Of the 200 native coastal communities in Alaska, varying degrees of erosion affect about 180 of them, according to the federal government’s General Accounting Office. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has said that Kivalina is one of three native communities in need of relocation.As explained in the resolution’s explanation, Kivalina “has been ever-increasingly at risk because of global climate change. Loss of sea ice has led to increased coastal erosion, land failure, and unreliable, if not perilous, conditions for the practice of subsistence hunting.”— Lynette Wilson is an editor/reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Marco Rubio and Rick Scott to urge passage of the HEROES Act for additional fundingFrom Public News ServiceGov. Ron DeSantis says Florida will use nearly $1 billion in federal CARES Act funds to help schools reopen at full capacity in August, as educators say every penny counts in order to do so safely.Special-needs teacher Peggy Sue Sternad, president of Gilchrist Employees United, says schools will need additional personnel and supplies beyond papers, books and pencils.There are additional costs for disposable masks, gloves and disinfectants, and Sternad says all of those needs will multiply for children with special needs going back to the classroom.“It costs so much money for these children now, so what are we truly looking at and what are they going to do to really help with those needs,” she states.DeSantis says schools will have 12 options for spending the money they receive, including funds for buying cleaning supplies and using them on mental health support services. The plan also includes recommendations for keeping students apart in classrooms to reduce the possible spread of COVID-19.Fred Ingram, president of the Florida Education Association, is calling on U.S. Sens. Marco Rubio and Rick Scott to urge passage of the HEROES Act, which is a stimulus package that also would provide additional support to schools.Ingram says the governor’s plan isn’t adequate.“We do not think that is going to be enough money, simply because our state has underfunded our schools for so many years,” he states. “We have to think about not only programmatic ideas, those classes, programs that kids want and need — band, art, drama, dance, sports programs — but also science labs.”Linda Mincey, special needs kindergarten teacher and president of Washington County Education Association, says she is worried about the lack of support for rural children, currently sitting at home without essential tools.“Some of our students are so rural that it’s hard to get Internet access,” she points out. “I guess what I’m saying is funding for everyone to have a chance.”The governor’s plan does include $64 million in flexible funds for summer programs to help boost literacy instruction in kindergarten through fifth grade to help close achievement gaps resulting from the pandemic.With safety being a top concern, Sternad says parents and teachers need to be at the table to help make decisions on the local level on whether a school is actually ready to open.“They really need to talk to us,” she stresses. “They really need to talk to someone that lives it every day so that they can truly see the needs and help us. ”According to the governor’s plan, all reopening steps would include provisions for students, staff and faculty to follow health and safety guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

USCA Requesting USDA Help in Assisting Cattle Producers

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News USCA Requesting USDA Help in Assisting Cattle Producers SHARE USCA Requesting USDA Help in Assisting Cattle ProducersThe fallout from the coronavirus pandemic has been extremely difficult for the cattle markets. The April contract has lost more than $10 in a week, causing even more stress on the industry.In an effort to help stop the consistent losses in the cattle markets, the U.S. Cattlemen’s Association is calling upon the USDA for their help to assist cattle producers. According to Lia Biondo, policy and outreach director of USCA, their first request is to restore the U.S. cattle market during the COVID-19 outbreak.“What we’re specifically asking for is for [Secretary Sonny Perdue] to use his authority under the Commodity Credit Corporation to develop and implement some sort of needed program that will help U.S. cattle producers make it through this difficult time period,” said Biondo.USCA is also asking Secretary Perdue to ensure that contingency plans are in place at meat processing facilities. That means keeping their doors open if an employee were to contract the coronavirus.“Send that employee home, obviously, but make sure that there are contingency plans in place to ensure that the packing plants are operational,” said Biondo. “We’ve got food flying off the shelves across the U.S. We’re going to need a little bit of additional regulatory flexibility and additional financial assistance to continue supplying the nation with a wholesome, abundant supply of food.”Biondo says USCA’s third request is for USDA to take a closer eye on cattle markets to prevent anti-competitive buying practices.“Making sure we’ve got that market oversight to help line out the cattle markets right now, which are having a difficult time in the wake of the coronavirus,” she said.Without these additional programs, Biondo thinks there will be producers going out of business in the long term because cattle producers have been hit with many years of continued losses.“It’s not that the coronavirus is the reason for the market low, but it’s one of the reasons and it’s been the reason that has culminated all of these other low price years,” said Biondo.In a statement to the cattle industry on Monday, USDA wrote that its agencies are committed to ensuring the health and safety of its employees and providing timely services to keep the food supply flowing.

Foreign journalists refused entry and denied visas

first_img Reporters Without Borders today urged Cuba to let foreign journalists into the country “so they can do their job freely and without restriction or aggression” and said it was disappointed at the regime’s refusal to allow half a dozen of them into the country and the blocking of visas for others. A group of journalists, including Alvaro Ugaz, of the Peruvian radio station RPP, and Mario Antonio Guzmán, of the Chilean station Radio Cooperativa, were turned back at Havana airport on 2 August when they told interior ministry police they had come to report on the situation concerning President Fidel Castro’s health. The officials said they did not have a press visa and made them leave on the flight they had arrived on. They said all journalists arriving with just a tourist visa would not be allowed in. Guzmán said it would take up to three weeks to get a press visa and the journalists had decided to take a chance and see if they could get in on a tourist visa.“The Cuban government, which is used to spying on the foreign press, has clamped down on access to the country,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “It is understandable that journalists should try to get in on tourist visas to do their job of reporting since it is so hard to get press visas. The present uncertain situation justifies the presence of the foreign media but the regime unfortunately seems to want to limit the number. But they must be allowed in.“We are also concerned about independent journalists in the country who have been indirectly threatened by senior military officials and warned not to create confusion. We are also watching closely the treatment of the 23 journalists currently in prison in Cuba,” it said.Other journalists, including reporters from the Washington Post and Miami Herald, were turned back at the airport. Juan Tamayo, the Herald’s chief of correspondents, said one of his paper’s journalists, who he did not name, had been put on a plane to Panama after presenting a tourist visa and saying he had come to work as a journalist. Since the announcement of President Castro’s illness, Cuban embassies have refused to issue visas or not responded to journalists’ requests. The regime has only issued a few visas to foreign journalists in recent years and those working for media outlets considered “dangerous” to national stability are routinely refused entry. Dozens have been expelled from the country.

It refers to the murder of Gauri Lankesh, a fellow journalist who was gunned down outside her home last year.Chaturvedi, who received the RSF “Prize for Courage” at a ceremony in London on 8 November, told RSF that she gets “about a dozen of the threats every week” and that that she “can’t even keep up” with them.Because of the surge in online threats, RSF addressed an urgent appeal on 28 November to Agnes Callamard, the UN Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions.“This type of comment can no longer be taken lightly in the current context, in which online threats can now lead to physical attacks,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “We call on the Indian authorities to do everything possible to guarantee Swati Chaturvedi’s safety and to prosecute those responsible for these hate messages.”The author of the tweet referring to Gauri Lankesh identifies himself in his profile as “a proud Hindustani.” Chaturvedi has repeatedly been target of online threats and hate campaigns ever since writing a bestseller entitled “I am a troll” about her undercover research into the troll armies used by the Hindu nationalist right.But the threats recently surged dramatically after a Brut India video highlighting Chaturvedi’s RSF Prize award and her troll army book went viral.India is ranked 138th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index.
