Regulators Shutter Georgia Bank 2014 Failure Count Hits 13

first_img in Daily Dose, Government, Headlines, News Share Regulators Shutter Georgia Bank; 2014 Failure Count Hits 13 Bank Failure FDIC Georgia Department of Banking and Finance 2014-07-21 Tory Barringercenter_img State and federal regulators announced Friday the closing of a Georgia bank, putting the 2014 national bank failure tally at 13.Georgia’s Department of Banking and Finance took possession of Conyers-based Eastside Commercial Bank, appointing FDIC as receiver.To protect depositors, Community & Southern Bank, based in Atlanta, has agreed to assume all of Eastside’s deposits, which were estimated at $161.6 million as of March 31. Community & Southern has also agreed to purchase $104.7 million of the collapsed bank’s estimated $169.0 million in total assets.FDIC also announced a separate transaction with Macon’s State Bank and Trust Company, which will purchase $42.6 million of Eastside’s loans.The remaining assets will be held by FDIC for later disposition.The cost of the bank failure is expected to impact FDIC’s Deposit Insurance Fund to the tune of $33.9 million, the regulator announced.Besides being the 13th FDIC-insured bank to fail so far this year, Eastside was the first to fall in Georgia in more than a year.While FDIC doesn’t make its list of Problem Banks open to the public, Eastside has sat on Calculated Risk’s unofficial list since 2009, when FDIC and the Georgia Department of Banking and Finance published a cease and desist order in alleging that Eastside was found to have “engaged in unsafe or unsound banking practices and had committed violations of regulations.” July 21, 2014 395 Views last_img read more

Forecast Housing to Follow Economy to Solid Ground

first_img Now that the overall economy is on more solid ground, Wells Fargo economists suggest that housing may soon follow in its footsteps, according to the group’s Housing Chartbook for October 2014.The second quarter real GDP growth was recently revised to a higher annualized rate of 4.6 percent, and the unemployment rate has fallen below 6 percent for the first time since 2008. Data on consumer spending and employment for the third quarter suggests that the economy will close out 2014 on a high note, according to Wells Fargo. The economists indicated in the report that they believe real GDP growth will average 3 percent per annum for the next two years.Improvement in the economy, however, has not translated into improvement for the housing market to date except for a few isolated markets such as Austin, Charlotte, and Nashville, all of which experienced strong employment and income growth, according to Wells Fargo’s report. New and existing home sales remain disappointing despite the improved economic conditions, with investors stepping away at a faster rate than traditional buyers are returning. Many new households choosing renting over buying, according to Wells Fargo.While some predict that the housing market is poised for more rentals than buys for years to come, particularly among millennials, Wells Fargo suggests the contrary. Because foreclosures, delinquencies, and mortgages in a negative equity position have all been steadily declining over the last few years, Wells Fargo economists predict that home sales will improve and the demand for mortgages will revive once households are more confident about income and employment. Tighter lending standards have prevented many from obtaining a mortgage loan, according to Wells Fargo.New home sales saw an 18 percent increase nationwide in August, sending them to their highest level since 2008. The Northeast and West experienced the largest gains in new home sales with 29.2 percent and 50 percent, respectively, according to Wells Fargo. The surge in new home sales matches the monthly gain in builder sentiment; the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB)/Wells Fargo Home Builder Sentiment Index jumped 4 points in September up to 59, its best score in nine years.Existing home sales fell off by 1.8 percent in August, but the decline in all-cash transactions (down 6 percentage points to 23 percent) suggests that investors are becoming less active in the housing market, according to Wells Fargo. in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, News Confidence Existing-Home Sales Forecast New Home Sales Wells Fargo 2014-10-13 Seth Welborn Sharecenter_img Forecast: Housing to Follow Economy to Solid Ground October 13, 2014 438 Views last_img read more

A farewell to the road for Paul Simon

first_imgA farewell to the road for Paul Simon by David Bauder, The Associated Press Posted May 22, 2018 8:09 am PDT Last Updated May 22, 2018 at 9:40 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email FILE – In this May 16, 2018 file photo, Paul Simon kicks off his Homeward Bound: The Farewell Tour in Vancouver, British Columbia. Simon, who’s 76, isn’t retiring. He has a disc due out this fall and promises he’ll still occasionally appear on stage. Since he started writing songs as a teen-ager, it’s hard to imagine that impulse shutting off forever. He’s done with the idea of long concert tours, so if you live in Greensboro, Austin or Orlando and want to see him perform, this is it. (Jimmy Jeong/The Canadian Press via AP) center_img NEW YORK, N.Y. – Farewell tours don’t always mean farewell, but are a ripe time for appreciation and appraisal. Paul Simon’s concerts and a new biography offer the opportunity for both.Simon’s “Homeward Bound” tour began last week in Vancouver and takes him across North America, to Europe and an eventual conclusion with three dates back home in New York City.Simon, who’s 76, isn’t retiring. He has an album due out this fall and promises he’ll still occasionally appear on stage. Since he started writing songs as a teen-ager, it’s hard to imagine that impulse shutting off forever. He’s done with the idea of long concert tours, though, so if you live in Greensboro, North Carolina, Austin, Texas or Orlando, Florida, and want to see him perform, this is probably it.The death of his lead guitarist and friend, Vincent N’guini, last December influenced his decision to step away, Simon said in a statement when the tour was announced. (He has declined interview requests).“Mostly, though, I feel the travel and time away from my wife and family takes a toll that detracts from the joy of playing,” he said.The set list from the tour’s opener in Vancouver indicates that he’s exploring the breadth of his career — from Simon & Garfunkel favourites like “Mrs. Robinson” and “America” to touchstones from “Graceland” and recent fare “Dazzling Blue” and “Rewrite.” With a 16-piece band, he often searches for new ways to tell familiar stories.“He was far more a curious musician than a self-congratulatory, self-repeating pop star,” wrote Jon Pareles of The New York Times in his review of opening night.Simon’s musical restlessness sets him apart from many peers, said Robert Hilburn, author of the just-released book “Paul Simon: The Life.” Simon was interviewed by Hilburn for the book. Many of Simon’s contemporaries aren’t interested in pushing boundaries or have fans who resist if they do. Simon’s last few albums have been adventurous, earning him critical and commercial success.Many people forget that Simon spent years as a mediocre writer searching for pop hits until his breakthrough song, “The Sound of Silence,” Hilburn said.“Once he became this great songwriter, he realized right away that you’re always in jeopardy,” he said. “There are always these distractions and temptations. He had this determination and intelligence to know that music is the most important thing — that you could never master it and never take it for granted.”Hilburn believes that the desire to stretch himself musically was the biggest factor in Simon’s break with partner Art Garfunkel in 1970, not the famous prickly relationship between the childhood chums. “If he hadn’t left Simon & Garfunkel, he’d have burned out like all the others,” Hilburn said.The two are more distant than ever after an unpleasant end to the “Old Friends” tour in 2012, and Garfunkel declined requests to be interviewed for Hilburn’s biography. So it would be wise not to expect another reunion soon.For the book, Hilburn pressed Simon to reveal details of the 2014 incident where Simon and his wife, Edie Brickell, were arrested on disorderly conduct charges for a fight at their Connecticut home. Without setting the record straight, it would remain a defining image of their marriage, he argued. Simon refused; instead, a photo of him and Brickell later renewing their vows at their Montauk, New York, home is in the book, standing as Simon’s testimony to the endurance of their relationship.Even though two of his three wives — Brickell and Carrie Fisher — were celebrities in their own right when they were married, Simon has generally been reluctant to feed the media machine. Hilburn believes that has cost him popularity through the years. Instead, people know Simon through his songs, and they’re likely to be remembered long after he’s gone, he said.In fact, that legacy drives the album he’s been working on for release this fall. He records again some of the compositions he’s particularly proud of that were lost along the way in terms of public attention. One song on the Vancouver playlist, “Rene and Georgette Magritte with Their Dog After the War,” is a likely target.Even though Hilburn was the first biographer that Simon co-operated with, they had their clashes. Hilburn wrote that he feared the project was close to breaking down. But ultimately he said Simon kept his word that Hilburn would be the final arbiter of what was written, and gradually opened up.“With all of the success he’s had, he still loves it when people love the music,” Hilburn said. “He wants people to love the music, not necessarily to like him. But I think if they got to know him, they will get to like him.”last_img read more

towards the control of the media IANS The classic Margaret Atwood novel is the story of a world in which—among other horrible things—women’s reproductive rights go completely AWOL and one class of women are enslaved only to give birth Hulu recently released the trailer for its television adaptation of A Handmaid’s Tale and many American commentators have greeted it with the feeling that their current reality is not far from the terror of Atwood’s fictional world Given that it’s becoming harder and harder for women to access abortion contraception or even advice about their choices This week in one American state lawmakers joked that women who want abortions should go to the zoo In February a politician in another American state argued that women should get written permission from her male sexual partner for an abortion because women are merely hosts Is it sounding like a sci-fi TV show yet But that’s America Let’s talk about dramatic events closer home Last year Maneka Gandhi Union Minister for Women and Child Development had a bright idea She suggested making sex determination during pregnancy—currently illegal under the Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Act (PCPNDT) of 1994—legal The leap of logic was that it would help to curbif the gender of the child was registered and the birth was tracked by doctors who would check on the mother up until safe delivery Before Gandhi issued a statement clarifying that her remarks were ‘personal views’ not formal proposals for altering policies NGO workers health specialists and women’s rights activists were very vocal about why her ideas were immensely short-sighted to say the least Representative image Reuters Oddly enough this hare-brained scheme has returned and is in the process of finding a home On 7th April a panel of the Maharashtra Assembly Public Accounts Committee (PAC) recommended making pre-natal sex determination mandatory in order to prevent female foeticide Its report tabled in the Assembly on 9 April laid out the plan of action: “When parents come for sonography compulsory sex determination must be allowed and follow-ups must be done at the local level to ensure the couples come for further check-ups It is necessary to visit these couples at home if they stop check-ups” The committee’s starting point that currently the PCPNDT Act only criminalises doctors for carrying out sex selection tests and not parents might sound like a salient one But it’s important to remember that there was a reason that the PCPNDT Act provided several safe-guarding mechanisms for women particularly with its 2003 amendments which left pregnant women out of the Act And this recognised that women frequently do not have autonomy in their choice to have a sex-selective abortion The plan to track parents during the pregnancy to make sure they come in for tests and check-ups after being told the sex of foetus leaves a lot of room for abuse by those intent on sex-selective abortions PAC’s Plan B in the event that the parents vanish is to get health officials to visit the couples at home Needless to say this plan could also go horribly wrong for a host of practical reasons—say if parents provide incorrect information about their address and contact details or district health officers and doctors are co-opted or bribed into a decision to carry out an abortion if the baby is a girl Doctors district health officers and NGOs the suggested participants in the tracking system might simply be inefficient or not possess the funds and bandwidth to follow up on the scores of couples who would presumably be coming in for consultations at clinics Extensive research on the active tracker device (a set-top box that was installed in sonography centres around the country in 2011 to monitor and record the tests conducted using the ultrasound machines) shows that they haven’t improved the sex ratio or been particularly useful in locating cases of PCPNDT violations (What has been helpful on the other hand are the sting operations conducted by the advocate Varsha Deshpande founder of the Lek Ladki Abhiyan movement which unearth instances of doctors carrying out illegal abortions) But most importantly the PAC’s suggested plan of action would be a gross violation of the efforts to protect women’s privacy and safety According to a statement issued and signed by 100 activists and feminists from the Forum Against Sex Selection and several other health rights organisations the PAC’s proposal would spell disaster for women in a number of ways “This new proposal will only result in a twenty-four hour surveillance of pregnant women both within the family and by the state authorities It will unnecessarily target every woman bearing a female foetus and will link any abortion that such a woman has (for any reason) to sex selection This will adversely impact women’s already poor access to safe abortion It will fuel a proliferation of illegal facilities for getting rid of unwanted female foetuses” the statement read Maneka Gandhi AFP The statement expressed the view that the proposal was aimed at absolving medical professionals who may be implicated in a sex-selective abortion while also shifting the burden on the pregnant women (Already the rates of conviction under the PCPNDT Act are low) Rizwan Parvez co-ordinator at Girls Count a coalition of civil society organisations that work on efforts to increase the country’s sex ratio said that a deeply patriarchal sentiment was at the heart of PAC’s recommendation: “The problem in a country like ours is that a large section of society continues to view abortion as a sin rather than seeing it as a maternal health issue A step like this to track pregnancy is purely motivated by such a mindset Furthermore legalising sex determination will target and jeopardise women who will become victims of domestic violence as the majority of people would not like women to carry female foetuses” We would then be facing a situation where families could well beat women into miscarriages if they can’t medically terminate a foetus that they now know is female Although health activists have agreed in the past that the current PCPNDT Act hasn’t been immensely successful as its implementation was only ‘on paper’ for many years Parvez quashes the view voiced by Gandhi that the PCPNDT Act has been a failure at improving sex ratios in the country He said that a stringent implementation of the Act together with efforts to change societal attitudes would be the optimal combination: “Haryana and Rajasthan have shown immense improvements in their sex ratio at birth (Haryana recorded 950 female births for every 1000 male births this March)—which is very important from a demographic point of view Instead of experimenting with making sex selection legal the government and all concerned stakeholders should focus on ways to implement the PCPNDT Act and alter the mindset towards pre-birth discrimination against girls while ensuring access to safe and legal abortions for women” At least Maneka Gandhi had the good sense to retract her suggestion soon after voicing it whereas the PAC has been congratulating itself about its self-described ‘revolutionary’ idea Sometimes public health committees make leaps of logic that just don’t seem to add up And in this case the revolution if it comes would undermine the hard work and years of dedication that Maharashtra and its activists put in to creating the Act against sex-selection in the first place The Ladies Finger (TLF) is a leading

saying it can no longer operate in the city’s political climate of increased gun control regulations and vocal opposition to its business "It’s with tremendous sadness and regret that I have to announce we are closing our shop" High Bridge Arms manager Steve Alcairo announced in a Facebook post on Sept 11 "It has been a long and difficult ride but a great pleasure to be your last San Francisco gun shop" Alcairo said the breaking point came this summer when a local politician proposed a law that would require High Bridge Arms to video record every gun sale and submit a weekly report of ammunition sales to the police If passed the law would join several local gun control ordinances on the books in a city still scarred by the 1993 murder of eight people in a downtown high-rise and the 1978 assassination of Mayor George Moscone and gay rights activist Harvey Milk Image courtesy: AP "I’m not doing that to our customers Enough is enough" Alcairo said "Buying a gun is a constitutionally protected right Our customers shouldn’t be treated like they’re doing something wrong" The announcement of the closing prompted an outpouring of sympathy and anger online from gun enthusiasts — and a steady stream of customers eager to take advantage of going-out-of-business prices High Bridge will close Oct 31 Alcairo said Supervisor Mark Farrell said he introduced the latest bill to help police combat violent crime in the city "Anything that makes San Francisco safer I support" he said The California Department Of Justice reported 931000 guns sold last year— three times the number sold in 2004 and the second highest annual number since the department began keeping sales records in 1991 "This is the city that defended gay marriage and fought for unpopular causes like medical marijuana" he said "Where’s my support" Champion pistol shooter Bob Chow opened the store in 1952 four years after competing for the United States in the summer Olympics in London Chow sold the store to Andy Takahashi in 1988 Takahashi who also owns the building that houses the store declined to comment The quirky High Bridge Arms attracted gun enthusiasts from around the world many posing in photos with Alcairo and his pistol-packing clerks Alcairo said professional athletes would visit the store when playing in San Francisco for the novelty of buying a weapon — and a T-shirt —
