Hirai, 50, currently runs the firm’s network products and services division, which includes Sony’s games business as well as newer ventures such as music and movie streaming services. He is a fluent English speaker known for his presentation skills, which were on display at the unveiling of Sony’s new handheld games device in a Tokyo ceremony in January. Stringer, who serves as Sony chairman, chief executive and president, said he would retain his current positions, for the financial year starting in April. The Sony boss, formerly an Emmy-award winning TV journalist, was brought in as chairman and chief executive in 2005, and added the role of president in 2009. In January he denied he was a candidate for the chairmanship of the BBC. last_img read more

During the 2008 crash, banks saw their reputation sink so low that many wondered if it would ever recover. During the Covid-19 crisis they are not exactly regarded as saints, but they do seem to have been among the companies that have seen their image improve.  The turnaround has been 12 years in the making, but I think that banks have finally won back the public’s trust – mostly. 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…But what about investing in banks? What about shares in HSBC Holdings or Lloyds Banking Group, for example? What about Barclays and Royal Bank of Scotland Group shares? Have they become more attractive too?The share pricesMost of the banks have suffered especially acute falls in their share price this year.The FTSE 100 has fallen by just over a quarter since the beginning of the year, but shares in Lloyds, on the other hand, have halved. It has been a similar story with Barclays  shares, while the RBS share price has more than halved — from 244p to 114p.  For HSBC shares it’s been tough but not quite so bad. Its shares have fallen by slightly less than a quarter.At face value that feels almost ironic. Shares in the bank that is famous for its links with China has performed much more strongly than the more UK-centric banks. But if you look a little more carefully at HSBC shares compared with shares in Lloyds, Barclays, and RBS, you will see a slight difference in timing. The HSBC share price started to fall a little sooner and has seen a mild recovery, roughly coinciding with with signs that the Covid-19 virus was spreading less quickly in China.Lower share price means higher dividends The recent falls in shares pertaining to the four banks has meant the yield has improved — assuming that dividends are maintained. The HSBC dividend yield is now just under 9%. Lloyds dividends are over 10%. RBS dividends are lower at just under 4%, but then the bank has only recently started paying dividends. The Barclays dividend yield sits roughly between the HSBC and Lloyds yield.With interest rates so low, I would be tempted to say these yields are very attractive.There is one big question mark hovering, however. Will dividends be maintained?We just don’t know how weak the economy will be in the post-Covid-19 era. Suppose house prices crash. A significant part of Lloyds’ revenue is from mortgage lending, so how would falling house prices affect it?Then there is the possibility of a debt bubble. If the economy falls into some kind of depression, might indebted households default in big numbers?On the other hand, partly thanks to international regulations imposed to reduce banks’ vulnerability in the event of another financial crash, banks have much stronger balance sheets today compared to 2008.I hate to tempt fate by saying this, but I think that the banks are highly unlikely to need a bailout this time around.We will always need banks, and after certain teething problems, they have all learned how to adopt digital technology. I think that shares in HSBC, Lloyds, and Barclays are appealing, right now. As for RBS shares, I am not so sure — this crisis is not good timing.

The issue at hand is that climate change is happening much more rapidly now than in the past. Much of the rapidity of change is related to the impact that larger numbers of humans and the byproducts of our technology have had on the generally slower pace of natural variation. God gave us brains to address the issue, and God expects us to use them. We must adapt more quickly to the more rapid changes, and acknowledge our responsibility to be good stewards of God’s creation.

We should save the fossil carbon for future generations to use for the many petrochemicals the modern world depends upon.

Rachel Mash, the environmental coordinator for the Anglican Church of Southern Africa, follows with full details:THE ECO-BISHOPS ARE COMING TO CAPE TOWNArchbishop Thabo Makgoba, chair of the Anglican Communion Environmental Network, is calling together a group of bishops from various countries impacted by climate change.Bishops have been chosen from countries reflecting the great challenges we face, from the sea level rise of Fiji, the deforestation of Argentina, the droughts of Namibia, the tsunamis of the Philippines and the storms of New York, and the warming of Alaska. These bishops are united in their commitment to addressing these environmental challenges.Sixteen bishops will be gathering in Capetown from Feb. 23 to exchange ideas and concerns, to share challenges and successes. First the bishops will hear about the challenges faced in different parts of the globe.Then they will share actions and theologies that have been helpful in moving forward. The goal is to strategize together in order strategies for raising the issue of climate change and environmental degradation throughout the global Anglican Church.What is the event? A strategic planning meeting hosted by the primate of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa of a core group of bishops and archbishops whose dioceses or provinces are in areas affected by climate change or in areas that contribute significantly to conditions that lead to climate change. The bishops and archbishops identified are already active in responding to climate change and environmental degradation as a result of human activity in various ways, e.g., through theological exposition and challenge, advocacy, greening churches and communities, and supporting local mitigation.Building on relationships already established virtually, the meeting will foster a strengthened, working collegiality among the bishops who have been identified and ultimately serve as a catalyst for further response and activities throughout the Anglican Communion.The bishops will share their experience in responding to climate change so far, their hopes, their concerns, and ideas about how they, specifically, might organize themselves better for that purpose. They will have an opportunity to reflect and study together, and to look at the obstacles they face and discern what they can do, by working together, to move through these obstacles.Drawing on their own experience and ideas, a strategic plan will be developed for themselves, with proposals for broader engagement in the Anglican Communion.Science and the experience of the impacts of climate change suggest that in many ways survival is at stake – for human communities, for the ecosystems on which human life depends. We have listened to Anglicans in a number of regions where congregations face food and water shortages and other stresses that are directly linked to climate change. The meeting and the broader project will enable Anglicans at leadership level to make coordinated efforts towards upholding human dignity and the integrity of creation, and strengthening interdependence within the Anglican Communion as we become better stewards of God’s creation. It is hoped that the outcomes of this project will have an impact that reaches far beyond the present time.Expected outcomesTo form a group of bishops and archbishops (Eco Bishops) representative of the regions of the Anglican Communion, will have participated in the core group as described above and worked together to formulate an action plan for themselves, with proposals for broader Anglican engagement in responding to climate change, faithfully, prayerfully and proactively.The core group of bishops will become visible in offering biblical and moral leadership in the area of climate justice. Their experience and deliberations will be communicated to Anglicans and others around the world via ACEN, news releases and other forms of media.As a resource for the broader Communion, a concise report will be produced, gathering the bishops’ lived experience and responses to climate change and setting out future actions. More Anglicans will understand that responding to climate change is part and parcel of our baptismal vocation and will be active in greening their homes, churches and communities and in speaking out on behalf of those experiencing the worst effects of climate change. The Anglican Church will become active in global advocacy.The Primate of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa (currently the chair of ACEN) will have shared the experiences and deliberations of the core group with his sister and brother Primates. Anglican leadership will increasingly be taking the initiative in networking effectively with ecumenical partners, other faith groups, government and UN structures. Those currently affected by the impacts of climate change will be given a voice at the international level of the Communion, and know that they are remembered and supported, both in the prayer and in practical ways.Those who have the power to curtail carbon emissions will have a fresh sense of how their actions can have a positive impact on their sisters and brothers in other parts of the world and contribute towards climate justice.The Anglican Communion will benefit from a shared endeavor.The following Eco-Bishops will be coming to Cape Town:Jane Alexander, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada; Mark MacDonald, National Indigenous Bishop, Canada; Andrew Dietsche, New York, The Episcopal Church; Nick Drayson, Northern Argentina; Nicholas Holtam, Salisbury, Church of England; David Chillingworth, St Andrews, Dunkeld and Dunblane, Scottish Episcopal Church; Chad Gandiya, Harare, Central Africa; William Mchombo, Eastern Zambia, Central Africa; Ellinah Wamukoya, Swaziland, Southern Africa; Stephen Moreo, Johannesburg, Southern Africa; Nathaniel Nakwatumbah, Namibia, Southern Africa; Thabo Makgoba, Cape Town, Church of Southern Africa; Thomas Oommen, Madhya Kerala, Church of South India; Andrew Chan, Hong Kong; Jonathan Casimina, Davao, Philippines; Tom Wilmot, Perth, Australia; and Apimeleki Qiliho, Fiji, Aotearoa-New Zealand.For more information contact: The Rev.

February 24, 2015 at 4:53 pm I have an inspired idea and one that I am totally serious about. It would actually be a trend-setter and would lead the way to preserve this world in better fashion than our wasteful niching and grouping habits.Tear down 815 Second Avenue. Return it to a green space as a gift and example. A nice park. A prayer garden in a overly important day. Move the few necessary (down-sized) General Convention offices to the grounds of the National Cathedral. The College of Preachers went broke some years ago and that space would do nicely. Don’t we only need about 4 office suites and 6 support offices anyway?Now THAT’s right use of resources. That’s leaving a smaller carbon print. That’s wise stewardship for activities that do not require office space that competes with the Stock Exchange. Beats burning up plane tickets and fluorescent bulbs to get together to talk about what other people should be doing…or, are our liberal friends thinking about someone else to do the trendsetting, and someone else to exercise the generosity and creative stewardship?

Required fields are marked * In the late afternoon on October 9, 2015, beloved Nancy Garni suddenly passed away at her home in Pasadena as a result of cardiac arrest. Having undergone a valiant stem cell transplant for leukemia diagnosed nearly two years ago, Nancy was in full remission, but her recovery was gradual and arduous. Surrounded by her husband, Michael Seltzer, and her daughter, Katherine “Kati” Farina, Nancy, 64, left her Earthly existence, loved ones, pets, and friends to serve a greater purpose.Nancy was the Lord’s disciple as her mission-filled life was served for others, coming to their aid, advocating for those disadvantaged, and protecting the little ones. Nancy cherished gardens and delighted in their splendor, shelter, and serenity, and it was no coincidence that she planted seeds of love, friendship, compassion, and leadership among those who knew her.Born on May 14, 1951 as the first child of Avis Tompkins Garni and Vincent Garni, Nancy was raised in Whittier, California. Nancy’s incredibly compassionate spirit began at an early age. She graduated from California High School in 1969, but not without planting seeds of love and compassion. While in high school, her commitment to serve those less fortunate continued when she sent care packages to soldiers serving in the Vietnam War. She also volunteered at Presbyterian Intercommunity Hospital in Whittier. Her friendships meant the world to Nancy. She was a great friend, student, and writer, and this latter skill led her to work for the hospital where she had volunteered. While honing her public relations skills at Presbyterian Intercommunity Hospital, she finished her collegiate journey at California State University, Fullerton where she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in English literature in 1979.Upon her graduation, Nancy served as the volunteer personnel director for Anaheim Memorial Hospital Medical Centers in Anaheim, California. In that capacity, she blossomed by conceptualizing, developing, implementing, and securing funding for 11 new health education programs that represented a 550 percent increase in community participation. Her leadership abilities were beginning to form while she served as management staff support for all their volunteer activities and programs. She provided primary staff direction for its foundation board of directors, among other support groups and auxiliaries. Her impeccable taste and style was evident in the numerous special events she also managed.After two years of tending to this hospital’s mission, she left and joined the American Red Cross, Los Angeles Chapter where she continued to blossom for six years. She climbed the ranks from assistant director of financial development and director of annual giving, to director of financial development and finally, development officer. Through her leadership, Nancy’s department conducted a campaign for relief funds of Ethiopia’s devastating famine in 1984. Her staff also provided support for the major earthquake on October 1, 1987 whose epicenter was near Whittier, her hometown. Public relations and marketing campaigns for support of other major disasters, the Summer Olympics in 1984, and local initiatives were also part of her responsibility. In her tenure as a prominent figure for the largest Red Cross chapter in the nation, her strategic planning, administration, and execution of fund development yielded a fruitful harvest, an increase of 1,500 percent in charitable giving dollars.In October 2, 1989 she planted her final roots as the director of development and later chief advancement officer for Hillsides, a Pasadena-headquartered premier provider of child welfare services in Los Angeles County. Nancy, recently married gave birth to her cherished daughter Kati the following year. Without missing a season, Nancy’s momentum to reap what she sowed for this agency continued. While preparing the work and patiently planting the seeds as she did at home in her English garden, Nancy served the agency for 26 years, profoundly committed to the mission of creating lasting change in the lives of vulnerable children, youth, and families. In her tenure comprised of four capital campaigns and yearly goals, Nancy raised more than $50 million to provide services and programs to the most disenfranchised populations. She successfully led a team to bridge the financial gaps many nonprofits experience when government contracts cannot fulfill the demands and needs of its operations.While working at Hillsides, Nancy advocated for those the agency served, who experienced unimaginable traumas and suffered emotional distress. The lives of those she served were full of thorns and weeds. Nancy believed in Hillsides work and the good seeds the agency planted as well to heal hearts, mend broken families, and enlighten souls. An inspirational leader and articulate communicator, Nancy’s steadfast commitment was to protect the most vulnerable and serve them through mentoring others’ talents and abilities, whether they were child care counselors, therapists, volunteers, or donors.All those she mentored entering the fund raising profession felt her leadership. Nancy was always willing to speak to anyone wanting knowledge in the field. Her team remembers her grace under pressure, her ability to solve problems, her open-door approach, and her gift of friendship, all while having the perfect application of makeup, polished nails, and an impeccable wardrobe.She balanced her professional career with spending time with her family and friends. In 2010, Nancy’s love for others came full circle when she married her soulmate, Michael. Both cared for each other deeply, tending to their hearts and cherishing time together. In 2011, Nancy was honored as one of Pasadena’s 50 Fabulous Women of Influence, and in a characteristic manner, Nancy shared credit for her accomplishments with her team of like-minded and dedicated associates.Like her English garden, Nancy had weathered adversity, having been diagnosed with leukemia nearly two years previously. Yet, Nancy continued to illustrate her grace, courage, kindness, and love for others. She continued to pray and seek understanding, a time to reflect on the roots firmly planted. Today, we are surrounded by her legacy: a walking garden of flowers, buds, and seeds in the lives of those she touched. May they all water and nurture the seeds she planted and live a life in full bloom like Nancy Garni.Nancy was preceded in death by her parents and is survived by Judy Garni, her sister, Katherine “Kati” Farina, her daughter, Michael Seltzer, her husband, her two dogs, Mischa and Bijou, and two cats, Confetti and Fifi.The Celebration of Life will be on Saturday, October 17, 2015, at 2:00 p.m. at St. Edmund’s Episcopal Church located at 1175 S San Gabriel Blvd, Pasadena. A reception following the memorial service will be held at the church’s parish hall. In lieu of flowers, the family asks donations be made to City of Hope or Hillsides.

He says we are also unlikely to see progress on a plan to improve lending to SMEs at the ECB meeting.”There had been a lot of enthusiasm about this around sort of April/May time – but unfortunately it’s quite difficult to set up new markets to sell bank loans across Europe spreads” he said.”The cost of funding in places like Greece, Portugal, Ireland is higher than say Germany and Austria – and it’s just very difficult to do things about that”.”We may hear more today, but unfortunately it’s probably a bit too early to expect any concrete action on that; so (it’s) on the back-burner for now I’m afraid” he added.
