The banking group has closed the remaining 60 per cent of its global distribution branch. HSBC said in June it would dispose of the arm as a non-core operation.Its role as a banknote producer in Hong Kong will be unaffected by the sale, which is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2010.“This largely standalone business was not core to [the bank’s] strategy,” the firm said yesterday. center_img KCS-content Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Wal-Mart opposes sex-bias case at class-action suit filed in the US

first_imgTuesday 29 March 2011 8:43 pm Show Comments ▼ whatsapp whatsapp SEVERAL US Supreme Court justices questioned yesterday whether female employees at Wal-Mart can proceed with the largest class-action sex-discrimination lawsuit in history that seeks billions of dollars.At issue in the case was whether a small group of women who began the lawsuit 10 years ago against the world’s largest retailer can represent a huge nationwide class that could total millions of women.After attorneys for Wal-Mart and for the employees presented arguments, a crowd of protesters that had gathered outside the Supreme Court shouted “fair pay now” and carried signs such as “Stop discounting the women of Wal-Mart”.Chris Kwapnoski, a 24-year Wal-Mart employee and one of the named plaintiffs in the case, confidently told reporters after the arguments, “We’re not going to lose.”She recalled being told by a manager to “brush the cobwebs off” and “doll up” if she wanted advancement.After listening to the attorneys, the top court took the case under advisement, with a ruling expected by late June. The decision could change the legal landscape for workplace and other class-action lawsuits.

The site is located in Otobashi, dense residential area, some distance away from Nagoya Station. We designed a house for a father and his daughter. The father asked for a modern Japanese style, and on the other hand the daughter asked for an artistic interior design with a vivid color scheme.Save this picture!© Yasuno SakataA spacious void space is placed at the entrance area, serving as a buffer zone to provide a comfortable distance between each other.

In the courtyard surrounded by the walls, a detached study is located away like floating in the air and the study has a domed ceiling reflecting the light.

Upcoming Field Days Promote Soil Health Partnership

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Upcoming Field Days Promote Soil Health Partnership Facebook Twitter SHARE Bible on soil healthIndiana farmer Brent Bible practiced no-till farming and the use of cover crops on his fields in Tippecanoe and Montgomery Counties, but last year he decided to learn even more about cover crops and joined the Soil Health Partnership. He treated the move as an educational opportunity.“We don’t have a lot of experience or a lot of knowledge regarding soil and health and what kind of management practices can impact that, positively or negatively. So we want to understand that a little bit better. We want to learn from some of those who have been involved in that arena for a longer period of time and look at what type of concentration in terms of management practices we might be able to do that might impact that and see a scientific or economic result from those.”Bible says for him the initial stages of SHP were learning how to learn.“What I mean by that is we’re learning who the right people are, who the people are to go to and ask questions of and who the good resources are. In our case we’re concentrating on cover crop management practices. Who are some of those people you might look at as experts in that field, and understanding where we can go for that source of information. I think we’ve been very successful in building some of that network and opening some of those communication lines. We’ll build upon that as the partnership goes on through the next few years.”He told HAT this is a long term effort in which they are looking for long term results and solutions over the next 5-20 years.Bible and other Soil Health Partnership demonstration network farmers will be sharing ideas with other producers throughout the Midwest during soil health field days from August through the end of the year.The field days will demonstrate how changing certain practices can create lasting environmental benefits while potentially increasing farm productivity and income. Examples of educational topics include:Cover crop benefits and integration into local cropping systems;Nutrient management and other strategies to improve soil health;Hands-on soil demonstrations; andFarmer panels to discuss local experiences with cover crops.Cover crops have gained attention for improving soil health because they capture excess nitrogen left in the soil and put good plant residue back into the ground.An initiative of the National Corn Growers Association, the SHP works closely with diverse organizations including commodity groups, industry, foundations, federal agencies, universities and well-known environmental groups toward the common goal of improving soil health.“We encourage sound soil practices combined with scientific quantification of results from farmers taking positive actions,” said Nick Goeser, SHP director. “Improved crop productivity, environmental gains and economic growth are all benefits of progressive soil management strategies.”The partnership has scheduled about a dozen events in Iowa, Illinois and Indiana, and anticipates dozens more in these and other Midwestern states throughout the summer and fall.Bible plans on hosting one of the field days, where in part, he will share his success with cereal rye and oats on his farm. He also has experience with tillage cover such as turnips, radishes and snow peas.“We have tried several different blends of cover crops, looking for the right combination,” he said. “It has had its challenges sometimes, but it has been a good experience overall. Our costs are lower, plus we have less erosion and runoff.”The updated schedule is at the Soil Health Partnership website, and the schedule will be updated throughout the summer.

Turkey: Appeal court could uphold life sentences for three well-known journalists

first_img September 21, 2018 Turkey: Appeal court could uphold life sentences for three well-known journalists Receive email alerts At the end of the original trial in February, the three journalists were sentenced to “aggravated life imprisonment,” the Turkish judicial system’s harshest punishment, which precludes any possibility of a pardon and prohibits temporary releases. They are aged 68, 65 and 74 respectively. News Arrested in September 2016, the Altan brothers and Ilıcak were convicted 18 months later of “trying to overthrow the constitutional order” in connection with their journalistic activities, in particular, their criticism of the authorities during a TV programme broadcast the day before the July 2016 coup attempt. After a preliminary hearing in June, an Istanbul regional court will today begin examining the substance of the appeals of three well-known journalists, Ahmet Altan, Mehmet Altan and Nazlı Ilıcak. If it confirms their sentences, they will end their days in prison, subjected to a drastic form of solitary confinement, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) warns. RSF_en RSF_TR Help by sharing this information Under Turkey’s sentence implementation law, persons convicted of “aggravated life imprisonment” are confined to an individual cell nearly all day, are allowed just a single one-hour visit by a close relative and a ten-minute phone call every two weeks, and are not let out of prison for any reason other than hospitalization. When an ailment cannot be treated in the prison infirmary, they are taken to an isolated room in a state hospital. TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Condemning abuses Council of EuropeImprisonedWomenFreedom of expressionJudicial harassment The already worrying situation of Turkey’s media has become critical since the abortive coup in July 2016. Many media outlets have been closed summarily, without any form of recourse, mass trials are being held and the country now holds the world record for the number of professional journalists detained. Turkey is ranked 157th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index.

The appeal court must take account of the rulings issued by the Constitutional Court and the European Court of Human Rights in this case. The conviction of these three journalists must be overturned.” April 2, 2021 Find out more TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Condemning abuses Council of EuropeImprisonedWomenFreedom of expressionJudicial harassment Their trial was marked by many procedural violations and a refusal to comply with a binding Constitutional Court ruling that Mehmet Altan’s prolonged detention constituted an unwarranted violation of his rights. It was only after resisting the Constitutional Court’s order for six months that the justice system finally released Mehmet Altan, under judicial control, in June. He will return to prison if his sentence is upheld on appeal. Organisation last_img read more
