Moodys downgrades ING Bank of Canada

TORONTO — Moody’s Investors Service downgraded ING Bank of Canada on Friday after a two-notch downgrade of its Dutch corporate parent ING Bank N.V.The debt rating agency cut its senior deposit ratings of ING Bank of Canada to Baa1 from A2 on Friday after a two-notch downgrade of Dutch parent ING Bank N.V.’s financial strength rating to C-.“Today’s actions reflect the potential adverse effects of ING Bank N.V.’s lower capacity to support its Canadian subsidiary, as captured by its lower standalone credit assessment,” Moody’s said.“Moody’s expectation of the willingness or likelihood that ING would provide support to ING Bank of Canada if needed has not changed.” The agency also raised concerns about ING’s narrow business model in Canada in an increasingly more competitive market.ING offers basic banking services in Canada including high-interest savings and no-fee chequing accounts as well as mutual funds and mortgage lending.“Relative to peers, ING Bank of Canada has elevated interest rate risk because of its reliance on interest revenues and the product options embedded in the core Canadian residential mortgage product,” Moody’s said.“Moody’s believes that ING Bank of Canada manages these exposures carefully, but in a stress environment they could still result in material losses.”Moody’s cut the Canadian banks’ standalone bank financial strength rating to C- and its short-term deposit ratings were downgraded to Prime-2 from Prime-1.ING Bank of Canada’s outstanding subordinated bonds, which are unconditionally and irrevocably guaranteed by ING Bank N.V., were downgraded by four notches to Baa2 from A1.All the ratings carried a negative outlook.The Canadian Press read more

UN conference to study why women in wartorn States suffer justice deficit

Noeleen Heyzer, Executive Director of the UN Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM), told reporters today at UN Headquarters in New York, that women who work in the justice field in 12 war-affected areas will take part in the three-day conference starting tomorrow.Participants will come from Afghanistan, Burundi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Haiti, Iraq, Kosovo, Liberia, Namibia, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Africa and Timor-Leste.Ms. Heyzer said the conference is designed to spotlight those schemes or policies that have been successful at strengthening women’s rights to greater justice, and to encourage those schemes to be adopted in other war-affected countries or regions.”There is a justice deficit for women in countries that have been in conflict and coming out of conflict – in terms of the protection, in terms of the violations, in terms of the sexual violence that has been used on women,” she said.”But at the same time there is a tremendous opportunity when countries that are coming out of conflict to strengthen gender justice in the context of the rule of law.”The conference has been organized by UNIFEM and the International Legal Assistance Consortium (ILAC), which is based in Stockholm. read more

Coral reefs cant wait for world to take action urges UN as

“It’s clear to anyone who puts their head below the waves that the fate of the world’s coral reefs is hanging in the balance,” said UNEP chief Erik Solheim. “At the moment these undersea explosions of colour and life face an extremely bleak future.”Coral reefs provide food and livelihoods for hundreds of millions of people around the world, support more than a quarter of all marine life, and protect communities and coastlines from natural disasters — and if urgent action is not taken, they could be lost forever.  Eight international organisations have joined forces to advocate for decisive action to protect these natural wonders: UNEP, the International Coral Reef Initiative, the World Wildlife Fund, the Nature Conservancy, the Wildlife Conservation Society, Vulcan Inc., the Ocean Agency, and the Secretariat of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD).“The expectations for this coalition could not be higher. Coral reef protection must become a global priority. Coral reefs need a better deal,” said Mr. Solheim, who unveiled the new partnership in the Egyptian coastal resort of Sharm El Sheikh. Dozens of ministers whose countries are party to the CBD are gathering there, together with experts and representatives of civil society organisations, to start a two-year process to adopt a global framework for protecting biodiversity, including coral reefs, around the world.The conference, which opened on Tuesday and will continue until 29 November, is a platform for decision-makers from more than 190 countries to make commitments and step up efforts to halt the biodiversity loss and protect the ecosystems that support health, and food and water security for billions of people worldwide.In addition, governments, private companies, NGOs and inter-governmental organizations; indigenous peoples and local communities; youth and civil society; are expected to make pledges in support of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020.The latest report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published in October 2018 warns that, even if we collectively manage to stabilize global surface temperatures to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, 70 to 90 per cent of coral reefs will be lost by the middle of this century. Continued failure to take action on climate change will result in even greater losses, the report warns.However, climate change is not the only major threat that reefs face. Over-fishing, pollution and coastal development have all caused major coral loss over the last 30 years. Reducing those threats can help recover the most resilient reefs after impacts – such as bleaching events, caused by above-average sea water temperatures due to global warming. “I am delighted to see that the issue of coral reefs is receiving the attention it deserves. We are now approaching the 2020 horizon and need to sharpen the focus on strategies for effective coral reef conservation and to support people who depend on them,” said Prince Albert II of Monaco.“The International Coral Reef Initiative General Meeting, which I will be hosting in Monaco this December, will be an important step and my wish is that it will lead to the adoption of a practical, effective, ambitious and realistic program of action,” he added.

Opera classics threatened by MeToo movement says top tenor

first_imgJonas Kaufmann, said to be one of the world’s greatest tenors, has suggested that half of the operatic repertoire could be struck from stages in the wake of the #MeToo movement and a climate of hostility towards misogynistic plot lines.Speaking about a recent performance of popular encore ‘Girls are Made to Love and Kiss’ in Santa Monica, he warned that increased public awareness of sexual harassment and assault could make popular lyrics inappropriate.The aria, from the 1925 operetta Paganini, features a man reflecting on women’s place as objects of male desire, singing: “I’m a man and I kiss her when I can”.“If I have to ask myself whether these tiny little erotic hints that composers gave in the 1920s are inappropriate, half of our operatic repertoire can’t be played any more,” Kaufmann said in an interview with The Spectator.His comments point to the influence of the #MeToo social media campaign against the sexual assault and harassment of women. In the light of fresh public awareness of the issue, many opera-goers are uncomfortable with the tendency for plots to end with the brutal death of a woman.Although it is common for women to play in so-called ‘trouser roles’, as male characters, the role of women in opera and gender imbalances in casting have long been the subject of controversy. A recent performance of Bizet’s Carmen in Florence replaced the death of the female lead with her murder of a jealous man, reversing the traditional ending. The reworking of the plot was intended to stage a “current Bizet”, which had a message of ‘anti-femicide’, the opera company said.Jonas Kaufmann is a world-class tenor singer, and has been cast in some of the most high-profile roles in the industry. He first performed at the New York Met in 2006, and has since been named as one of the world’s greatest living tenors.The #MeToo movement gained traction on social media last October, following a series of allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, which he denies. Since then, women from a number of industries have come forward with their experiences of sexual assault and harassment.Kaufmann’s comments come after the opera world was dragged into the #MeToo campaign in December by the suspension of renowned conductor James Levine from the Met. Mr Levine was accused of the sexual assault of three teenage singers in the 1960s. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Motherly affection can combat depression in kids

first_imgA depressed mother’s stress can pass on to infant before his or her life begins in many ways. But according to a new study, parenting strategies can combat the negative impacts of maternal depression on an infant.Stress can pass through the placenta to negatively impact the foetus in ways that manifest after birth such as birth weight, brain development and increased susceptibility to various ailments, said lead author Elisabeth Conradt from University of Utah in the US in a study. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting'”We were curious about whether maternal behaviour could ‘buffer’ the child against the effects of maternal depression, and if this buffering could be observed at the level of the infant’s epigenome,” Conradt added in the study published in Child Development.This study is the first to demonstrate that certain forms of maternal care-giving can have such an effect.The team worked with 128 infants of women with self-reported symptoms of depression and obtained DNA from the infants through cheek swabs and cortisol – a hormone released in response to stress, levels from their saliva. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixEach infant participated in three two-minute face-to-face play episodes with their mothers. The first play episode required normal play between mother and infant, the second episode required that the mothers be unresponsive to their infants and the third episode was a reunion episode where mothers were allowed to interact again.Maternal sensitivity, recorded every 30 seconds, was assessed using four scales.Greater levels of maternal sensitivity were related to lower levels of cortisol, the study found.”Many mothers struggle with depression but interact quite sensitively with their infants. In these instances, the mother may be ‘turning on’ certain genes that we think allow infants to manage stress in adaptive ways,” Conradt stated.last_img read more

López Obrador greenlights work on new international airport at Santa Lucia

When youre struggling thats what people are go

No success for however long, he comes in, turns it around, wins a couple division championships, goes to the Super Bowl,” Warner said. “(He) did some amazing things that nobody has really done here before. That to me is why you have to give a strong look to somebody like Coach Whisenhunt.” Outside of Whisenhunt and the Cardinals, the other six head coaching vacancies came due to lackluster performances throughout — or to close out — the season. 0 Comments   Share   Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Top Stories On Tuesday afternoon, NFL Network analyst Kurt Warner joined Arizona Sports 620’s Doug & Wolf to discuss his former team and the changes it has made.Warner — being the player and man that he is — had strong feelings towards the hiring of Steve Keim and firing of his former coach, Ken Whisenhunt.He understood the due process of head coaching positions in the NFL, and knew the reasoning behind the Cardinals’ immediate actions after a second 5-11 season in three years.center_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retireslast_img read more

Final eightday remand for suspected serial killer

first_imgThe Nicosia district court on Wednesday approved a sixth and final remand of eight days for 35-year-old suspected serial killer Nicos Metaxas, allowing police to complete the collection of statements and to assess additional locations and telecommunications data.Reading out a written statement to the court, police investigator Ioannis Yiorkadjis mapped out the details of the case involving the serial killings of seven people, five women and two girls.The case began unravelling on April 14 when the first body, that of 30-year-old Mary Rose Tiburcio from the Philippines was found in a mine shaft in Mitsero. The suspect’s confession to seven total victims, of which five bodies have so far been found, had justified the renewal of his remand in police custody which had by Tuesday extended for 40 days.Yorkadjis requested from the court a final remand of eight days to allow police to complete investigations before the suspect is charged next Thursday with the alleged crimes of murders, kidnapping, abduction, rape, indecent assault, attempting to destroy evidence and obstruction of justice among others.So far, police have collected 620 statements and another 20 were expected to help complete the case file, Yiorkadjis said.He added that scientific examination on 453 items of evidence are also expected to shed light on the case, as will results from tests on three vehicles belonging to the suspect.Forensic examinations are also ongoing to officially identify some of the victims as they were all badly decomposed.Yiorkadjis noted that police will also be examining four locations in Nicosia, and are awaiting approval of several pending requests for the disclosure of telecommunications data.Metaxas, who appeared before the court under tight security wearing a bullet-proof vest and once again without a lawyer, did not object to his further remand.Meanwhile searches are ongoing at the red lake for the third suitcase, believed to contain the body of Maricar Valdez Arguiola, 30, and at Memi lake in Xyliatos for the remains of Sierra Graze, a six-year-old girl and daughter of the first victim who was found on April 14.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoSmart Tips DailySeniors With No Life Insurance May Get A $250,000 Policy If They Do ThisSmart Tips DailyUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’UndoThree arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
