Basel says bank bondholders must bear losses

The Committee will publish a keenly awaited draft later this year for dealing with a bank’s bonds when capital levels move below minimum requirements but the lender’s problems are not yet terminal.“Tier 2 capital instruments (mainly subordinated debt), and in some cases Tier 1 instruments, did not absorb losses incurred by certain … banks that would have failed had the public sector not provided support,” the committee said.Under the new rules, holders of the debt will have to agree to the bonds being written down or converted to equity if the bank is no longer commercially viable or needs public aid, the Basel Committee said in its statement.The Committee said that the rules would be triggered if authorities decided a bank needed a write-off without which it became non-viable, or if there was a decision to make a public sector injection of capital.Separately, the European Union is pushing through plans to have senior bondholders share in the pain if a bank lands in trouble, leading investors to shun such paper and driving up funding costs for banks. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’DefinitionTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Sent off: Owen Farrell after being red-carded for a dangerous tackle (Getty Images) The England captain has been banned for five matches after receiving a red card for a dangerous tackle Owen Farrell sent off as Saracens lose to WaspsOwen Farrell has beeen banned for five matches after being sent off in Saracens’ 28-18 Gallagher Premiership defeat by Wasps for a dangerous tackle on Charlie Atkinson.The incident happened midway through the second half when Farrell burst out of the line and caught Wasps replacement Atkinson high with a swinging arm.Referee Christophe Ridley was quick to show Farrell a red card for the dangerous tackle and Atkinson required a lengthy period of treatment on the pitch at Allianz Park.You can watch the incident here… LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The England fly-half, who apologised to Atkinson as he left the field with Wasps’ medics, was given a five-match suspension at a disciplinary hearing and he cannot play again until 5 October. That means he will miss Saracens’ European Champions Cup quarter-final against Leinster and the remainder of the club’s Premiership matches.In World Rugby’s sanctions for foul play, regulation 9.13 covers dangerous tackles: A player must not tackle an opponent early, late or dangerously. Dangerous tackling includes, but is not limited to, tackling or attempting to tackle an opponent above the line of the shoulders even if the tackle starts below the line of the shoulders.The recommended sanctions are two weeks for a low-end offence, six weeks for mid-range and ten-plus for the top end. The disciplinary panel determined that the tackle, which was described as “totally unacceptable”, was at the top end, so had an entry point of ten matches. The panel then applied the maximum 50% reduction due to mitigating factors.Handshake: Owen Farrell apologises to Charlie Atkinson (Getty Images)Independent panel chair Mike Hamlin said: “It was accepted by the RFU, the player and the panel that the offending was reckless and not intentional.“This was a totally unacceptable contact with the neck/head of Charlie Atkinson as a result of a reckless tackle which had the consequences of him being knocked unconscious and sustaining a concussion. This resulted in the panel concluding that this was a top-end offence with an entry point of ten matches. There were no aggravating features.“Testimonials provided by Mark McCall, Eddie Jones and the founders of a charity with which the player works very closely were of the highest quality.“The panel concluded that applying the off-field mitigating factors, notwithstanding his suspension four-and-a-half years ago, the player was entitled to a reduction from ten matches to five meaningful matches under RFU regulation 19.11.11. The player is free to play again on 5 October.”last_img read more

Typical suburban cities are a completely car-based society. Various buildings including mega-shopping malls, amusement facilities, DIY stores, electronics retail stores and restaurants are lined up along arterial roads, with huge billboards displayed on top. Such scenery evokes the image of a webpage on a computer display, filled with glitzy banners all over. Many people exist there, but we don’t feel their presence. Urban space along roadsides in outlying cities is now transformed into a two-dimensional interface.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki HiraiWe designed a flagship office of a printing company whose headquarter is situated in the Greater Tokyo Area. The new office, covering the Kansai and Chubu Regions, is situated in Suzuka City, Mie Prefecture. The program includes an office, a warehouse serving as a hub for long distance transport, company housing and guest rooms. The company’s intention is to make this office rooted in the community, and also to ensure a pleasant living environment. Respecting these intentions, our plan provides an office on the ground floor and residences on the second floor.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki HiraiHow can we live comfortably on the suburban roadside?Though you might never find it from fast driving cars, some livable space actually exists behind the billboards.

Each hut is approximately the same size as a typical billboard of the area. The front façade is rather austere with no windows, and on the contrary the east façade is quite open with large windows to bring ample morning light inside. The huts are clad in various kinds of metal sheets with different reflectance properties. The ever-changing sky and the surrounding environment are reflected on the surface, scenes in everyday lives are mirrored and the lively atmosphere is transmitted to the outside. This is an analogy to printing, expressing the process of input (information) and output (printing on paper).Save this picture!© Hiroyuki HiraiThis is a small “town”, which is now beginning to prevail in this community behind banal billboards. Eventually these “towns” will be incorporated into the community, while enhancing communication and interaction between people.

Instead of competing with other billboards, this “town” will gradually be integrated into the community and become a center of community activities.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki HiraiProject gallerySee allShow lessEarly Childhood Center / a+ samueldelmas architects urbanistesSelected ProjectsCustomi-Zip / L’EAU designSelected Projects Share Japan ArchDaily CopyMixed Use Architecture, Houses, Retail•Suzuka, Japan Year:  2014 Save this picture!© Hiroyuki Hirai+ 17 Share “COPY” “COPY”last_img read more

Barrett Brown case: 11 of 12 counts dismissed

first_img Reporters Without Borders greets with relief federal prosecutors’ decision to drop nearly all criminal charges against Barrett Brown, a contributor to The Guardian and Vanity Fair.Most importantly from an information freedom perspective, prosecutors based in Dallas, Tex., dismissed accusations of aggravated identity theft.Brown was indicted on 12 September 2012. The charges arose from his publication of a link to a site that had made public several thousand emails exchanged by staff members of Stratfor, a private intelligence firm. Before most charges were dropped, Brown faced a maximum term of 105 years in prison.In his reporting, Brown had zeroed in on evidence of ties between government intelligence agencies and their private-sector counterparts. The government clearly saw this information as damaging. In addition, Brown had already made himself a target because of his work, dating back to 2011, in exposing “Team Themis”, a project designed to neutralize the hacking group Anonymous and journalists linked to the group.Reporters Without Borders joined in an amicus brief in support of Brown. Other freedom of information advocacy organizations signing the brief were the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, Freedom of the Press Foundation, Committee to Protect Journalists and PEN American Center. The brief makes clear that the charges violated First Amendment guarantees of freedom of the press and free expression. Despite the recent dismissals, Brown remains behind bars on other charges, which grow out of the circumstances of his arrest. “While we welcome the prosecutors’ decision,” said Camille Soulier, head of Reporters Without Borders’ Americas desk, “we note that Barrett Brown is still incarcerated on charges of obstruction of justice and of making threats to a federal law enforcement officer.”The press-freedom organization demanded the immediate dismissal of the remaining charges. Brown, Soulier said, “is paying the price for an overly expansive and abusive interpretation of the concept of national security, one that violates freedom of information.”Ranked 46th of 180 countries in the World Press Freedom Index that Reporters Without Borders published in February, the United States has dropped 13 places in the ranking since the previous year’s index.
