Barclays and Lehman wrap up US lawsuit

first_img LEHMAN Brothers’ lawsuit against Barclays over its $1.75bn (£1.09bn) purchase of the bankrupt group’s assets draws to a close today, as lawyers on both sides submit their final arguments on whether Barclays made a secret windfall on the sale. Lehman, which filed for the world’s biggest bankruptcy in September 2008, is expected to claim Barclays made $13bn from business assets and securities added to the purchase at the last minute. Barclays will argue that the terms of the sale were fair, and were made clear in a letter given to both Lehman and the New York bankruptcy judge who approved the purchase. Judge Peck, who presided over the original bankruptcy hearings, must now re-examine his ruling and decide whether Barclays deceived Lehman and the court. If he decides Barclays must repay Lehman, the money could go towards paying the hundreds of billions of dollars still owed to creditors. Peck said in court in October that he “never approved [Barclays’] clarification letter,” adding: “There are over 12,000 docket entries. I do not know everything that is contained.”New Barclays chief executive Bob Diamond took to the stand in June to defend the bank, but was slammed by the judge for his “evasive” answers, with Peck adding: “I think that this is a witness that needs to have the leash held tightly.”Peck is expected to take until January or February to reach a decision, extending the prolonged legal battles linked to the collapse of Lehman Brothers.Last week, the same judge ruled that Bank of America must return $500m of deposits it seized from Lehman Brothers Holdings shortly after the bankruptcy. Lehman is also suing JP Morgan for allegedly siphoning off assets during the early stages of the bankruptcy, which the bank denies.

Markets remain volatile, but a swathe of FTSE 100 stocks have posted terrific price gains in the past month. Yet if I was a shareholder of two recent blue-chip risers, I’d sell now and buy into some of the other great opportunities out there. Here’s why.DIY SOSSellers of DIY and gardening products have enjoyed a roaring trade since re-opening their doors in recent days. Those retailers with online operations have been enjoying solid demand for some weeks though, giving housebound Britons something to do during the lockdown period.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…It’s a trend that’s helped B&Q and Screwfix owner Kingfisher (LSE: KGF) sail higher. In fact, its share price has soared 13% over the past few weeks. Its ascent has been aided by trading details released earlier this week in which it advised e-commerce sales had quadrupled since mid-March. Sales in the UK and Ireland are also back in recovery following the re-opening of its storesCall me a stick in the mud, but I’m afraid I’m not bowled over by Kingfisher. It’s possible that ongoing quarantining will keep sales of its home and garden products performing well for a little longer. But the outlook is a lot murkier beyond the next few months, with a painful recession coming down the tracks. It’s possible conditions could be even more difficult in its long-embattled French businesses too, given the greater economic decline there following the Covid-19 outbreak.Despite recent share price rises, Kingfisher’s still pretty cheap. The Footsie firm currently trades on a forward price-to-earnings (or P/E) ratio of around 12.5 times. But I consider the retailer’s investment case to be far too risk-heavy. In fact, I reckon existing shareholders should use strength in recent weeks as an opportunity to cash in and buy other great opportunities in the FTSE 100 instead.Another Footsie nightmareI’d also be tempted to book profits at Centrica (LSE: CNA) after price rises of its own. The British Gas owner has risen 7% over the past month as the clamour for safe havens has grown. Utilities, of course, are popular picks during tough economic periods, due to their stable earnings profiles.However, I wouldn’t consider Centrica to be a suitable pick for risk-averse investors. The rate at which it continues to lose customers makes it anything but. In fact, the coronavirus outbreak will likely speed the rate at which its client base is eroding, given the extra pressure on households’ spending in a recessionary environment. It also has to contend with earnings-crushing price caps.It’s likely the number of switchers to smaller, cheaper electricity and gas suppliers will gradually pick up steam. A recent report from IHS Markit on household finances reveals the growing strain on Britons’ wallets. This shows household finances are at their weakest levels since 2011.On top of this, the prospect of prolonged weakness in oil prices muddies the profits outlook for Centrica’s upstream division. The FTSE 100 firm’s P/E ratio of 9 times might be a cheap. But I, for one, won’t be tempted. I’d rather buy one of the Footsie’s other genuinely-brilliant bargains.last_img read more

Judy Gann.[Episcopal News Service] Esta es la estación para alegrarse en la fiesta de Navidad de New Hope Oklahoma, el 21 de diciembre, a la que asistieron cientos de niños que tienen padres en la cárcel y que tuvo lugar en la iglesia episcopal de La Trinidad [Trinity Episcopal Church] en Tulsa.Michelle Young empezó a asistir a los programas extraescolares de la agencia —y también a sus fiestas de Navidad— en séptimo grado, cuando alguien le contó acerca de New Hope Oklahoma. La agencia fue fundada por la Diócesis Episcopal de Oklahoma hace unos 20 años para ayudar a niños que tienen al menos uno de sus padres en prisión.“Muchísima gente me dijo que yo terminaría igual que mi papá, entrando y saliendo de la cárcel continuamente. Pero con New Hope, te dicen, te muestran, un camino diferente. Puedas permanecer en la escuela y educarte”, dijo Young, de 19 años, que es alumna de primer año de la Universidad del Estado de Oklahoma, y quien sirve de voluntaria en eventos como la próxima fiesta de Navidad.“Es muy divertido. Hay diferentes actividades. Uno puede crear su propio reno y sus propios regalos. Hay juguetes y presentes y comida.  Es bastante agitado, pero divertidísimo. A los niños les encanta”.La directora ejecutiva, Lindsay Fry-Geier, dijo que New Hope se empeña en ser algo más que “una mera agencia. Vemos a nuestros niños todos los días de la semana. Queremos ser la coherencia de sus vidas cuando tanto en sus vidas es incoherente.Oklahoma tiene la mayor tasa de mujeres encarceladas de la nación y el tercer lugar entre los hombres; New Hope Oklahoma se fundó en respuesta a la preocupación por los niños que se quedaban detrás, dijo Fry-Geier.La agencia apareció recientemente en el programa Today Show de NBC, que se unió a Walmart para proporcionarles regalos de Navidad a cientos de niños, una oportunidad que Fry-Geier espera “le dará voz a… esos niños que han sido olvidados por tantos, especialmente en torno a estas fiestas en que les echan de menos a sus padres”.New Hope no está sola; congregaciones y ministerios a través de la Iglesia Episcopal se han asociado con agencias tales como Angel Tree, y otras organizaciones para ofrecerles regalos a los presos y sus familias. Angel Tree estima que 2,75 millones de niños tienen uno de sus padres en prisión y espera ofrecer 425.000 regalos este año.Llegar a los presos ‘pabellón por pabellón’Para Beverly Duncan de la iglesia episcopal El Buen Pastor [Good Shepherd Episcopal Church] en Acton, Massachusetts, empacar bolsas de regalos de Navidad para los presos de los centros correccionales locales puede asemejarse bastante a una producción.“Imagínese 1.700 barras de jabón Irish Spring y el espacio que ocupan, dice ella riendo durante una reciente entrevista telefónica con ENS. “A veces creo que no querría volver a oler otra barra de Irish Spring en mi vida”.Además del jabón, las bolsas de regalo incluyen otros artículos de uso personal: pasta de dientes, champú, desodorante, calcetines, papel de cartas, sobres y una tarjeta de Navidad “firmada por alguien con una nota. Muchas de las tarjetas son hechas por los niños de las escuelas dominicales de la localidad”, agregó ella.Todo comenzó cuando El Buen Pastor se asoció con Concord Prison Outreach, una coalición de comunidades religiosas de la localidad que, según Duncan, “quiere ayudar a los reclusos de hoy a convertirse en los buenos vecinos de mañana”.La recaudación de fondos y las compras prosigue el año entero para las bolsas de regalos y el Departamento de Centros Correccionales publica directrices [para informar] sobre los artículos que son aceptables, explicó ella. “Somos obsesivos con los detalles respecto a estas cosas e importunamos a las autoridades carcelarias con preguntas como [por ejemplo] ¿cuán grande o pequeño tiene que ser este tubo de pasta?, agregó.Más enriquecedora es la oportunidad de distribuir las bolsas a los reclusos mismos.“Entramos en la Institución Correccional de Massachusetts y los reclusos van bajando por pabellones”, explicó Duncan, de 79 años. “Los revisan a la entrada y salida del gimnasio y les entregamos… [las bolsas de regalo] a cada recluso, y les damos la mano. Él tiene que recorrer los seis o siete voluntarios. Queremos estrechar todas las manos.Las reacciones son diversas: “Algunos no nos miran a los ojos; algunos bailan en la cola. Un hombre dijo que era el primer presente de Navidad que había recibido en su vida”.Pero ella agregó que [los presos] son “enormemente agradecidos. Siguen llegando, pabellón por pabellón. Es algo espantoso. Se trata de una sola prisión en un solo estado y tenemos tanta energía y talento tras las rejas”, dijo Duncan.“En parte responde a la necesidad, pero no en la medida que debiera, y el talento [que está encerrado] en esos edificios es increíble y la falta de educación también es increíble”.Ella recibe unas 60 cartas de agradecimiento cada año de los presos. “Un hombre decía que cuando regresó a su celda, el desempacar sus regalos lo llevó a él y a su compañero de celda a hablar acerca del verdadero significado de la Navidad.“Algunas de las cartas son prácticamente [de] analfabetos. Todas te dan las gracias por los artículos, pero la mayoría por ser recordados, por no convertirse en seres olvidados tan sólo por estar en prisión”.Jermain Billinger ha sido uno de los destinatarios de esas bolsas de regalo.A los 33 años, él ha pasado casi la mitad de su vida en lugares como Attica, Sing Sing y otras prisiones estatales de Nueva York.“Me metí en problemas desde que tenía unos 13 años, esa fue la primera vez que me arrestaron”, dijo el hombre de voz suave y padre de dos hijos durante una reciente entrevista por teléfono con ENS. “Me arrestaron 15 veces entre los 13 y los 15 años”, añadió Billinger, que vino a conocer a su hijo de tres años hace unos pocos meses, después de salir de la prisión.Si estar encarcelado ya resulta bastante difícil, están en prisión durante las fiestas de Navidad es peor. Su madre murió cuando él estaba preso; a su novia “le dieron un tiro en el pecho y yo no estaba allí. Te sientes tan impotente, tan débil. Yo no me di cuenta lo deprimentes que pueden ser estos días hasta después de que mi madre falleció.“Cuando era más joven, era muy duro”, afirmó él. “Usted sabe, estaba lejos de mis seres queridos y resultaba doloroso. Me hice insensible. Bloquee ese sentimiento de alguna manera, lo puse bajo siete llaves.“Uno se deprime allá dentro”, agregó. Uno se deprime tanto que ni siquiera sabe que está deprimido. Ya sea que te hayan encontrado culpable o que hayas llegado a un acuerdo [con la fiscalía], está toda esta ansiedad, intentas lidiar con la aceptación de lo que está pasando y, en tanto tratas de procesar eso, la ansiedad nunca te deja, o el vacío, o la soledad, por [la ausencia] de tus seres queridos”.Recién liberado, ya está trabajando y ansioso de empezar de nuevo y de marcar un cambio.“Me di cuenta de que basta ya”, dijo. “Los problemas que le he causado a mi familia… Veo el modo en que eso ha afectado a mis seres queridos. No quiero volver a hacerlo”.Actualmente, se concentra en cambiar su vida, en ayudar a otros, especialmente a los que dejó atrás.Junto con el Rdo. Petero Sabune y la iglesia episcopal de los Santos Juan, Pablo y Clemente [Episcopal Church of Saints John, Paul and Clement] en Mount Vernon, se ha hecho partícipe de los esfuerzos de Toys for Joys, una agencia sin fines de lucro que ayuda a proporcionarles regalos de Navidad a niños desfavorecidos.“Primero, encontramos lo que los niños quieren, como una petición secreta a Santa Claus”, explicó Billinger. “Luego conseguimos los regalos y se los enviamos a los niños como si procedieran de sus padres”.Él mira hacia el pasado con remordimiento, pero hacia delante con entusiasmo, disfrutando lo que él llama los verdaderos regalos y el significado de la estación: paz, gratitud, gozo, libertad, esperanza.Al presente, acepta llamadas de presos con cobro revertido y les ofrece apoyo, y añade: “quiero retribuir tanto como pueda y llegar a aquellos que son menos afortunados”.¿Y sus deseos de Navidad? “No te olvides de tu hermano que está encarcelado”, respondió. “Hay allí algunos hombres inocentes y algunas personas que cometieron errores cuando eran niños; ahora son adultos y siguen sufriendo. Nadie es malo del todo; las personas sí cambian. Querría que el mundo le diera una segunda oportunidad a alguien que al menos está intentando cambiar”.En Tulsa, dijo Lindsay Fry-Geier, New Hope Oklahoma sirve, durante todo el año, a más de 400 niños a través de campamentos de verano, programas extraescolares, reuniones regulares de familias y otros eventos, tales como la fiesta de Navidad del 21 de diciembre.“También hacemos retiros y tenemos un terapeuta en el equipo que se ocupa de las evaluaciones de casos para las familias. Tienen tantas necesidades. No podemos atender todas las necesidades de todas las familias, pero podemos colaborar activamente con ellas y conocer sus necesidades e intentar cubrir sus carencias”.La agencia ofrece ayuda con clases particulares, grupos de apoyo y otros programas de carácter comunitario, brindándoles transporte a los niños de unas 20 escuelas de la zona hasta la iglesia de La Trinidad para sus programas extraescolares y auspiciando agrupaciones escolares en otros siete planteles.“La Trinidad es una parroquia grande y bella y hemos llegado a llenar todas las salas, todas las aulas, los salones de conferencia. Funcionamos de 5 a 7 PM”, explicó ella. “Los niños vienen y trabajan unos con otros y luchan juntos; tenemos también un grupo de apoyo para los cuidadores. En verdad, nuestra esperanza es que esto forme una comunidad”.“Todo nuestro personal del verano este año estuvo compuesto de estudiantes universitarios que estuvieron en el programa y que se habían graduado y que eran los primeros de sus familias en asistir a la universidad”, agregó. Es algo tan hermoso. Algunos de nuestros estudiantes de secundaria dirán que les encanta asistir al campamento y a los programas y se fijan en los chicos mayores y saben que ellos van a lograrlo. Es algo impactante para nuestros niños”.Michelle Young estuvo de acuerdo. “New Hope ha significado muchísimo para mí”, afirmó. “Traen a montones de personas y uno espera que no sepan tu nombre, pero sí lo saben. Saben el nombre de todos y cada uno de los niños que asiste a su programa. No eres una cifra. Eres una persona real”.–La Rda.

La Obispa Presidenta de la Iglesia Episcopal presenta el mensaje…

first_img Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL [17 de junio de 2015] “Con demasiada frecuencia el mundo quiere cerrar sus fronteras, condenar las puertas de entrada y ahogar los gritos de los hambrientos y los desprotegidos”, nos dice la Obispa Presidenta de la Iglesia Episcopal Katharine Jefferts Schori en su mensaje del Día Mundial del Refugiado 2015. (“Somos guardianes de nuestros hermanos y hermanas, y cuando somos reflexivos, recordamos que nuestro bienestar depende de la seguridad de los demás”.)El Día Mundial del Refugiado se celebra el 20 de junio, y en su mensaje, la Obispa Presidenta se refirió también a la ardua labor de reasentamiento que realizan los Ministerios Episcopales de Migración.A continuación el mensaje de la de Obispa Presidenta Jefferts Schori.Día Mundial del Refugiado 2015Por miles de años, los seres humanos han sido sacados de sus hogares debido a conflictos, desastres y opresión. Abraham y Sara comenzaron como inmigrantes y sus descendientes se convirtieron en refugiados:“Un arameo errante fue mi antepasado; él descendió a Egipto y vivió allí como extranjero, pocos en número… Cuando los egipcios nos trataron duramente y nos abatieron… el Señor nos sacó de Egipto… a este lugar y nos dio esta tierra… en la que fluye leche y miel”.[1]Sus descendientes se convirtieron en una bendición para Egipto, hasta que se vieron oprimidos y huyeron para salvar sus vidas. Siendo niño, Jesús y su familia fueron refugiados en la otra dirección, huyendo de la violencia de la dominación romana en la tierra de Israel y buscando refugio en Egipto[2].Hoy en día hay más refugiados, solicitantes de asilo y personas desplazadas internamente que en cualquier otro momento desde el final de la II Guerra Mundial. Más de 51 millones de personas alrededor del mundo viven en peligro de muerte, con temor e incertidumbre. Como descendientes de los arameos errantes, cuyos antepasados huyeron de la esclavitud en Egipto, estamos encargados de cuidar al peregrino. Amar al prójimo como a nosotros mismos es fundamental para nuestra vida de fe.Con demasiada frecuencia el mundo quiere cerrar sus fronteras, condenar las puertas de entrada y ahogar los gritos de los hambrientos y los desprotegidos. Somos guardianes de nuestros hermanos y hermanas, y cuando somos reflexivos, recordamos que nuestro bienestar depende de la seguridad de los demás. Si algunos viven en la miseria y la inseguridad, la violencia por lo general es el resultado. Sólo tenemos que mirar a nuestro alrededor y reconocer que la violencia muy a menudo viene de quienes supuestamente viven de manera segura así como de quienes carecen de medios o recursos. Si queremos paz, debemos cuidar de quienes huyen de la violencia – y orar por sus perpetradores. Estamos hechos a imagen de Dios y fuimos creados para vivir en paz.Al conmemorar el Día Mundial del Refugiado, reflexionemos acerca de cómo estar conscientes e involucrados:Conozcamos sobre las actuales migraciones a gran escala – de África a lo largo del Mediterráneo; de áreas del sudeste de Asia; del conflictivo Oriente Medio; de Burundi a las naciones circundantes; los refugiados de guerras de las pandillas en América Latina; y en tantos otros lugares de conflicto, desastre y discriminación.Oremos por aquéllos que viven en los campamentos de refugiados, en centros de detención y en el limbo migratorio.Busquemos maneras de involucrarnos personalmente y a través de las congregaciones.Participemos en los Ministerios Episcopales de Migración, que celebran 75 años de ayudar a reasentar a los refugiados en Estados Unidos. Contribuyamos con ayuda financiera, defensoría e involucramiento personal. El año pasado, los Ministerios Episcopales de Migración reasentaron a más de 5,000 personas de 32 países diferentes.Seamos defensores de los inmigrantes, quienes luchan por ser escuchados, quienes suelen ser invisibles o estar marginados. Unámonos a otros para abogar por políticas de inmigración y asilo que busquen la justicia para todas las clases y condiciones de personas desplazadas.Trabajemos por la paz en nuestros propios vecindarios y en todo el mundo – relaciones que aquí abarcan las diferencias pueden sustentar iniciativas de consolidación de la paz en otros lugares.Los refugiados y los inmigrantes se convierten en fuertes miembros de las comunidades locales y son una bendición para sus vecinos. ¿Seremos igualmente nosotros una bendición para ellos, buscaremos que tengan una dignidad similar y responderemos con compasión a sus necesidades?Reverendísima Katharine Jefferts SchoriObispa Presidenta y PrimadaLa Iglesia EpiscopalMinisterios Episcopales de InmigraciónLos Ministerios Episcopales de Inmigración son el programa de reasentamiento de refugiados de la Sociedad Misionera para Locales y Extranjeros. Cada año, la Sociedad Misionera trabaja en colaboración con su red de afiliados, junto con las diócesis, las comunidades religiosas y voluntarios, para recibir a refugiados de las zonas de conflicto de todo el mundo.[1] Cf.

The ParkArk of Hieke and Sietze, located next to a busy cycling route through a park, has been completed. The combination of the publically visible moorage and the client’s residential needs were central concerns during this design.Save this picture!© StijnStijlThe clients had a number of requests. Firstly, they wanted the ark to be larger than their former one, while maintaining the intimate atmosphere of their former steel ship. Also, they wanted to have the full experience of ‘living and floating on the water’, though without the application of a hackneyed nautical form language, such as portholes. Finally, they wanted a boat where no one can look in, but at the same time they wanted a full view of the park.Save this picture!© StijnStijlAs a visitor, one first approaches the boat over a footbridge, to find a door that barely gives away anything of the interior. Inside, however, a large skylight offers you a view of the treetops, and directly in front of you the park is visible. Opposite the front door is an access to the roof terrace and the mooring for the fishing punt. On either sides are the living and dining room, accessible from the open hall, which is raised one step to give extra ceiling height in the shower.Save this picture!ElevationThe facade consists of multiple materials, giving a special appearance. The copper sheets at the bottom nearly touches the water, causing a the boat’s reflection to gently blend with the facade. The fenestration establishes a balance between privacy and maximised views of the park. The external staircase connecting to the roof terrace continues the white stucco of the interior, creating the atmosphere of an outdoor room.Save this picture!© StijnStijlThe port authority of Utrecht allows maximum external dimensions of 5 x 16.5 meters, 1 meter depth, and 4 meter above the water level. The design of a floating houseboat provides additional challenges with respect to structures with foundations. Besides the strict external dimensions there must be a balance in the distribution weight. A heavy bookcase can indeed cause the boat to tilt, and subsequently, this may cause rainwater to accumulate on the roof, furthering the tilt. While not visible from the outside, the houseboats has drainpipes at every corner making this scenario impossible. The use of 3D models made ​​it possible to develop key details before the execution. A method that is not feasible in every private project.Save this picture!SectionAlmost every design decision hinged on experiential values​​, and not just those of the resident. The clients also thought about the experience of visitors, like the reflection of the facade in the water. Many houseboat owners have a big “do it yourself” mentality, because that is more or less required for living on the water. Sadly, this does not always produces aesthetically pleasing houseboats. That doesn’t always turns out to beautiful houseboats. This project, though, shows that a carefully balanced design provides added visual aesthetic value in this public place.Save this picture!© StijnStijlClient testimonial:During the entire process, the collaboration was very pleasant. During the design phase BYTR architects devised many creative ideas and solutions as for the facade material, the placement of windows and the experience of outside in the interior. Also during construction, the architect was involved, always informed on what was happening in the shipyard and maintaining in close contact between different parties. Every day we enjoy our new houseboat: the invading sun, overlooking the water and the monumental bridge, the ornamental grasses from the windows. What a nice home, we are so happy with the result!Project gallerySee allShow lessDo New Buildings In London Have Shard Envy?Architecture NewsLight Matters: Mashrabiyas – Translating Tradition into Dynamic FacadesArticles Share Save this picture!© StijnStijl+ 30 Share Parkark / BYTR architectenSave this projectSaveParkark / BYTR architecten The Netherlands Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/510448/parkark-bytr-architecten Clipboardcenter_img Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/510448/parkark-bytr-architecten Clipboard Projects CopyHouses•Utrecht, The Netherlands CopyAbout this officeBYTR architectenOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesUtrechtHousesThe NetherlandsPublished on May 30, 2014Cite: “Parkark / BYTR architecten” 30 May 2014.
