JPMorgan reports 3Q loss after hefty litigation charge but adjusted earnings top

JPMorgan reports 3Q loss after hefty litigation charge, but adjusted earnings top expectations by Steve Rothwell, The Associated Press Posted Oct 11, 2013 6:37 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – JPMorgan Chase, the biggest U.S. bank by assets, reported a rare quarterly loss after setting up a big reserve for legal expenses.The bank had to absorb a reserve for litigation expenses of $9.2 billion in the July-to-September period, pushing the lender to a loss of $380 million compared with a profit of $5.7 billion a year earlier.While JPMorgan emerged from the global financial crisis and the subsequent Great Recession as one of the strongest U.S. banks, it has been dogged by lawsuits in recent years.Last month, JPMorgan agreed to pay $920 million and admitted that it failed to oversee trading that led to a huge $6 billion loss last year — an episode known as the London Whale. The bank is also said to be discussing an $11 billion national settlement with the Department of Justice over mortgage-backed securities. The securities lost value after a bubble in the housing market burst and helped spur the financial crisis.The bank said it had a total of $23 billion in reserves to cover potential litigation costs, a figure it said it hasn’t disclosed before, including the $9.2 billion for the third quarter. JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon said that the amount reflected the “reality” the bank now faces but, speaking on a call with reporters, declined to give specifics on the legal costs it is anticipating.“It’s painful,” Dimon said on a call with reporters. “But what’s more important is the underlying performance of the company.”The bank posted a loss of 17 cents per share in the latest quarter, compared with net income of $1.40 per share a year earlier. Excluding charges, however, its adjusted earnings beat Wall Street expectations.Its shares edged up in early trading Friday, rising 45 cents, or 1 per cent, to $52.97Excluding the litigation expense, it earned $5.8 billion, or $1.42 a share, in the quarter. That beat analysts’ forecasts for earnings of the $1.19 a share, according to FactSet.The banks’ performance was bolstered by credit card sales and more deposits at its consumer banking unit. Net income at JPMorgan’s investment banking division rose as expenses fell, and it reduced its reserves for losses on loans.Overall bank revenue fell 8 per cent, to $23.9 billion, missing analysts’ estimate of $24.1 billion. read more

As Libya marks 64th independence anniversary UN envoy urges unity behind new

“The year ahead, Libya’s 65th year as an independent State, will be an important one,” Martin Kobler, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative and head of the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), said in a message.“With the signing of the Libyan Political Agreement, Libyans have a clear plan for rebuilding a strong, united and peaceful Libya. It is important for all Libyans to unite in support of the Government of National Accord – one government for one country. In unity there is peace. In peace there is prosperity.”Mr. Kobler facilitated the agreement to form a Government of National Accord with a Presidency Council, Cabinet, House of Representatives and State Council, in talks between the factions last week in a bid to end a four-year-long crisis that has left nearly 2.4 million Libyans in desperate need of humanitarian aid.A former Italian possession, Libya was the first country to become independent through the UN, in 1951, after a brief period of UN trusteeship.“Some of the lessons from the birth of Libya can help us today. Like now, Libya was then faced with the task of creating and uniting behind new common institutions,” Mr. Kobler said. “Today it is one week since the signing of the Libyan Political Agreement which puts the country back on the path to build a modern democratic State. I encourage all Libyans to unite behind the new inclusive government institutions.”Yesterday the Security Council unanimously adopted a resolution hailing the formation of the Presidency Council, calling on it to work within the 30 days prescribed by the agreement to form a Government of National Accord, and finalize interim security arrangements to stabilize the North African country, which has been plagued by factional fighting since the 2011 revolution. read more

Youth sport experience better for children than it was for their LGBTQ

Early findings from new Brock University research show LGBTQ parents fear their children will face homophobia, rejection and stigma as they start playing youth sports.“In reality, many of the LGBTQ parents in the study found positive and accepting communities — in some cases, feeling more accepted as a parent than they ever were as a youth who was labeled gay,” says Brock associate professor of Recreation and Leisure Studies Dawn Trussell.To research LGBTQ issues, Trussell started the Team Family Pride Project which is funded through a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council grant.“I had been doing research with LGBTQ youth who had been excluded from sport and it made me wonder how LGBTQ parents negotiate the sport domain to support their children in an environment they may not have felt included in,” says Trussell.We have found the parents in our study want what any parent wants, to have their children accepted and feel a sense of normalcy.The Team Family Pride Project aims to build a community of support while helping recreational and sport organizations understand how to be more inclusive to LGBTQ parents and their children.Trussell is now sharing preliminary findings from the research project that used social media channels to bring together more than 70 individuals from Canada, the U.S. and Australia to participate in ongoing dialogue about their experiences as LGBTQ parents.“This is one of the first works of research to look at the experiences of LGBTQ parents introducing their children into organized youth sports. We have found the parents in our study want what any parent wants, to have their children accepted and feel a sense of normalcy,” says Trussell.When considering where service and sport organizations can adapt youth programs to better meet the needs of LGBTQ families, two areas were consistent among participants from all three countries: the use of language on forms and broader considerations when event planning.“Embedded in the culture of sport organizations are assumptions based on the traditional nuclear family. Many consent forms use language which request signatures from mothers and fathers, as opposed to the more inclusive terms of parent and guardian,” explains Trussell.“Banquets and events specifically designed for fathers and sons or fathers and daughters can also be problematic, so there is a need to confront assumptions about who fills these roles in LGBTQ families.”Wanting this to be a grass-roots project, Trussell worked with Community Engagement Facilitator, Jennifer Apgar.“As a lesbian mom, this project was important to me. While there is a positive movement in making social spaces and experiences more inclusive and accepting of diversity, family structures still seem to default to hetero-norms,” says Apgar.“It is through research like this that small changes in youth recreation and sport organizations could have large impacts on the experiences of families who access them,” she says.Trussell and the Team Family Pride Project are hopeful that as they build on the preliminary findings and continue to gain insight into the perspectives of both parents and children, they will be able to develop useful resources for youth recreation and sport organizations. read more

Ohio State mens lacrosse holds off Hill Academy 1311 in exhibition play

Then-freshman attackman Carter Brown (14) passes the ball during a game against Marquette Feb. 23 at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. OSU won, 18-8.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorFreshmen players scored five of Ohio State’s 13 goals in the first men’s lacrosse game of 2014.Freshman attackman JT Blubaugh scored two goals and added an assist Saturday as the No. 7 Ohio State men’s lacrosse team held on to beat Canadian prep-school Hill Academy, 13-11.Playing in their first game since the fall, the Buckeyes found themselves down early as Nolan Apers scored 28 seconds into the game for Hill Academy.A pair of juniors turned things around for the Buckeyes as attackman Reegan Comeault and midfielder Jesse King scored three straight goals to help OSU take a 3-1 lead after the first quarter.However, Hill Academy would not back down as Jake Cook scored a man-down goal late in the third quarter and the Buckeyes found themselves trailing, 8-7.But freshman midfielder Sean Giampietro didn’t let the Buckeyes trail for long as the Garnet Valley, Pa. native scored just more than a minute later to tie the game.“Sean this past week has really started to blossom,” OSU coach Nick Myers said. “Getting a chance to play as much as he did today, he will take a lot out of this opportunity.”Junior midfielder David Planning, who tallied 17 goals last season, scored the Buckeyes’ second goal in 40 seconds to give OSU a lead it would not relinquish.After the game, Myers credited Hill Academy for traveling from Canada to take on the Buckeyes, saying it gave his team a good challenge.“I have to credit The Hill Academy for coming here,” Myers said. “That’s a very organized group. They gave us a very good look, those are some very skilled players … I’m happy we got challenged the way we did.”Despite holding on and getting the victory, senior defenseman Dominic Imbordino said OSU still has work to do, especially in regards to discipline, as the team was called for eight penalties.“It’s a point of emphasis for us to stay out of the box,” Imbordino said. “I feel like we could have done a better job with that today.”Still, four different freshman scored a goal for the Buckeyes, an opportunity senior defenseman Darius Bowling said will help them later in the season.“I wish I would have had an opportunity like this when I was a freshman,” Bowling said. “It was definitely good to get out here in an actual game and get that experience.”Myers said the starters will open up their next exhibition game, but he is more focused on the team improving as a whole.“We are trying to get better from A to Z,” Myers said. “This game was certainly a good first step for us.”The Buckeyes will host their second of three exhibition games on Saturday, when the Navy Midshipmen are scheduled to come to Columbus. Game time is set for 12 p.m. at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. read more

Literacy to be targeted with the priority it deserves at local level

first_imgTHE GOVERNMENT IS stepping up its efforts to improve literary levels across the country with a new programme focusing on local authorities.The Right To Read campaign will see each authority adopt and implement an action plan, and also build a network of ‘key community stakeholders’.“Many libraries have been providing excellent literacy supports for many years,” Minister for Housing and Planning Jan O’Sullivan said.“What the Right to Read initiative will provide is a baseline for those supports.One of the key early actions of the initiative is to review existing best practice in literacy supports and ensure that they are widely shared and implemented throughout the nationwide library network.At the core of this campaign will be to develop a “integrated and sustained” approach in supporting people of all ages with literacy problems, and will be standard across the country.It will also attempt to ensure the people who need the services are reached.It will also examine how literacy initiatives can be incorporated into local sport and recreational activities.Other measures at national level announced in the programme include:The establishment of national steering group bringing together stakeholders from other Departments and agenciesAn early review of existing best practice and identify those which are most successful and merit wider applicationAn examination how best to reach people with literacy challenges at all stages of lifeTo develop national guidelines for Literacy Action PlansTo establish the ‘Right to Read’ Champion Awards Programme.O’Sullivan said this campaign has its roots in an initiative of the same name launched by Labour TD Aodhan O’Riordan during his time as Deputy Lord Mayor in 2006.Irish adults are below the OECD average in literacy, with the results placing Ireland 17 out of 24 on the list in a survey last year.Ireland’s numeracy skills are also below average.Prompted by previous similar findings in international research, the Department of Education developed initiatives such as the Project Maths syllabus in schools.Read: The 10 best books of the year (so far), according to Amazon >More: Mobile phones found to help boost literacy rates in developing countries >last_img read more

Holiday easter eggs show up in Google Search

first_imgGoogle employees are no strangers to hiding little surprises across their services to make users smile when they stumble across them. This holiday season is no exception, as Google has modified several search terms to deliver a themed addition to your search results.When you perform a search on Google’s homepage for “Christmas”, “Hanukkah”, or “Kwanzaa”, your search results will contain a little something extra. Don’t worry, the actual search results aren’t affected, but there’s a matching holiday border at the top of the page.Christmas search results offer a Google-themed string of lights across the top of the results, while Hanukkah (alternative spelling “Chanukkah” works as well) delivers a string of golden stars. Kwanzaa offers the kinara candle arrangement. Once you move on to something else in the search results, the holiday easter egg disappears. Curiously, the Hanukkah search results have the News tab removed from the quick tab above the results, moving it to the drop down labeled More. Both Christmas and Kwanzaa have the News tab right next to Shopping on the tab list.This is a neat little gesture that is sure to make a few people smile, but it wouldn’t be a Google easter egg if there wasn’t something to make you laugh. Searching for “Festivus” on Google’s homepage will also generate a themed result. Instead of a string across the top of the page, you get the Festivus pole all the way down the left hand side of your search results.This is, of course, just the top of a list of easter eggs Google is famous for deploying. Throughout the years Google has managed to sneak surprises into their datacenter walkthroughs, YouTube pages, and their chat service just to name a few. The company also manages a different easter egg in every version of their Android OS, usually themes to whatever desert themed codename the version was labeled.via Matt Cuttslast_img read more

100th Crew From Lower 48 Arrives To Fight Alaska Wildfires

first_imgOn the Swan Lake Fire the majority of Incident personnel are being reassigned to other fires or returned to their home unit. The Eastern Area Type 2 Incident Management Team (IMT) will transition to a smaller Alaska organization mid-week.This smaller organization will manage the fire for the next few weeks. Personnel and equipment have been repairing damage caused by suppression operations. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享As blue-shirted ranks of firefighters stepped off a chartered jet and onto the tarmac of Fort Wainwright’s Ladd Army Airfield on Saturday evening, a 2019 milestone was reached for Alaska. Arrival of the five interagency handcrews from midwestern states marked the 100th crew coming to Alaska from the Lower 48 to fight fire this year.Californian hotshot crews, Idahoan smokejumpers, Oregonian rappellers and hand crews from as far away as Ohio and New Jersey have worked side-by-side this summer with emergency firefighters and the University of Alaska’s Nanooks fire crew, among many others, to defend Alaska’s communities, infrastructure, and native allotments. They are re-establishing proper drainage on dozer lines, covering exposed soils with vegetation to reduce future erosion potential, and chipping piles of limbs and brush created during fireline construction. Land managers will continue to monitor and mitigate fire effects until a season-ending precipitation event occurs.center_img The fire remains at roughly 102,229 acres and has been limited to creeping and smoldering within the fire perimeter for the last week.last_img read more

As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio.

Queen Elizabeth Prince Philip celebrate 70th wedding anniversary

first_imgBritish Queen Elizabeth IIBritain’s Queen Elizabeth will add another landmark to her record-breaking reign on Monday when she and Prince Philip celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary.Princess Elizabeth, as she was at the time, married dashing naval officer Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten at London’s Westminster Abbey on 20 November 1947, just two years after the end of World War Two, in a lavish ceremony attended by statesmen and royalty from around the world.Seventy years on, Elizabeth, 91, and her 96-year-old husband will mark their platinum anniversary with a small family party at Windsor Castle, the monarch’s home to the west of London.A spokesman for Buckingham Palace said there would be no public event to mark the occasion.Greek-born Philip, a descendant of Elizabeth’s great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria in his own right, has been at his wife’s side throughout her 65-year reign, the longest in British history. He was the person who broke the news to her in 1952 that her father, George VI, had died and that she was now queen.“One of the secrets of this very, very long marriage, and it’s an incredibly impressive anniversary, is the fact Prince Philip has always seen it as his main duty to support the queen, to help her in whatever way he can,” royal historian Hugo Vickers told Reuters.“He is the only person who can actually tell the queen absolutely straight what he thinks, and if he thinks some idea is ridiculous he will say so in whatever language he chooses to use.”The couple first met when they attended the wedding of Prince Philip’s cousin, Princess Marina of Greece, to Elizabeth’s uncle, the Duke of Kent, in 1934.Philip then gained the attention of his future wife when the then-13-year-old princess made a visit with her parents to Britain’s Royal Naval College at Dartmouth in southern England where he was a cadet.“TRULY IN LOVE”“She was truly in love from the very beginning,” the queen’s cousin Margaret Rhodes, a life-long friend and one of her bridesmaids who died last year, wrote in her memoir.Their engagement was announced in July 1947 and they married four months later. With Britain still recovering from the war, the wedding offered a rare burst of colour and pageantry against an austere background of rationing and shortages.The 21-year-old princess, who wore an ivory silk Norman Hartnell gown decorated with 10,000 seed pearls, had to collect coupons for her dress like other post-war brides and the couple spent their honeymoon in southern England and Scotland.While some two billion people were estimated to have watched the couple’s grandson Prince William marry his wife Kate in 2011, their own wedding was only broadcast live to some 200 million radio listeners, although highlights of the day were captured on grainy black and white film footage.“I can see that you are sublimely happy with Philip which is right, but don’t forget us is the wish of your ever loving & devoted Papa,” King George wrote to his daughter after the wedding.While royal watchers say Elizabeth and Philip have had their ups and downs like any married couple, they have avoided the travails of three of their four children whose marriages have ended in divorce, most notably heir Prince Charles’s ill-fated union with his late first wife Princess Diana.It was at the couple’s 50th wedding anniversary in 1997 that the queen paid a rare personal tribute to her husband.“He has, quite simply, been my strength and stay all these years,” Elizabeth said.No other British monarch has celebrated such a landmark, and indeed Elizabeth was the first to mark a diamond wedding anniversary in 2007.Philip, who has suffered health issues in recent years and was hospitalised in June, retired from active public life in August. They both attended a memorial service on Remembrance Sunday on Nov. 12, although a royal source said the monarch had decided not to lay a wreath so she could watch from a nearby balcony alongside her husband.“Without Prince Philip the queen would have had a very tough and lonely life. He’s been a complete support to her, a rock to her, from the moment she was on the throne,” royal biographer Claudia Joseph told Reuters.last_img read more

Stampede kills 27 during religious bathing festival in India

first_img Comments   Share   HYDERABAD, India (AP) — At least 27 people were killed and dozens injured Tuesday in a stampede during a Hindu religious bathing festival on a river bank in southern India.The stampede occurred in Andhra Pradesh state as tens of thousands of people pushed forward to bathe in the Godavari River on the first day of the Pushkaralu festival, said Arun Kumar, a state administrator.The stampede was triggered by some pilgrims who were trying to retrieve their shoes, which had fallen off in the rush to the river bank, police said. Mesa family survives lightning strike to home Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall Top Stories The difference between men and women when it comes to pain Kumar said the incident, which occurred in the town of Rajahmundry, happened not long after the 12-day bathing festival started in the early morning hours.Andhra Pradesh’s chief minister, Chandrababu Naidu, said 27 people died in the stampede.An additional 34 people were hospitalized with injuries, Kumar said.Festival participants believe a bath in the river can rid them of their sins, and many believe it is more auspicious to bathe on the festival’s first day.V. Satyanarayana, a pilgrim who was at the site, said the stampede lasted nearly 20 minutes.“It was a frightening situation, with women and children crying for help,” he said. “The policemen on duty were helpless and it took more than an hour to bring the situation under control.”With the bodies of victims lying around, relatives wailed and cried for help.Some pilgrims said ambulances took time to reach the site because the roads were overcrowded with people.Officials said that a small place like Rajahmundry could not cope with the rush of hundreds of thousands of people, and that the situation became almost unmanageable.Thousands of pilgrims, riding in buses, trains and other vehicles, started reaching the pilgrimage center two days ahead of the start of the festival. Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Sponsored Stories “There is a false belief that taking a holy dip in the river on the first day of the festival will be more auspicious,” said Swamy Swaroopanand, a Hindu holy man. “It’s the same as taking dip on any other day.”Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed grief over the tragedy, tweeting that he was “deeply pained” by it.Rajahmundry is 450 kilometers (280 miles) east of Hyderabad, the joint capital of Andhra Pradesh and newly created Telangana state.About 24 million people are expected to take part in the festival at varying points along the Godavari River, which flows through the two states.Deadly stampedes are fairly common during Indian religious festivals, where large crowds gather in small areas with few safety or crowd control measures.In October 2013, a stampede in Madhya Pradesh state in central India killed more than 110 people, mostly women and children.___This story has been corrected to show that the festival’s name is Pushkaralu, instead of Kumbh.Copyright © The Associated Press.

Three of the hackers are Americans, What if my little dude had come in contact with one of the unvaccinated! Chances are nothing But maybe something And if it was something that thing could have been catastrophic I’ve been wondering lately if I have any friends who are anti-vaxxers Some of the dads in my playdate group are kind of out there: musicians actors and such One is a big conspiracy theory guy Another is active in the Occupy movement Who knows what kind of wacky stuff they’re up to Maybe they hopped aboard the trendy not-getting-your-kids-immunized train I brought it up with a couple of them Luckily no true nut jobs (Well about this issue anyway They’re an odd bunch but in the best ways) There is one dad who is not fully on board with vaccines deeming some of them unnecessary He felt that the reason a lot of vaccines are required by schools is because the state has a financial interest in…I don’t know…their sale and distribution or something It was the conspiracy guy and I had kind of a hard time following his logic He also does not agree with the recommended vaccination schedule asserting that getting too many at a time weakens a child’s immune system (A reasonable-sounding concern some might think though there is absolutely no evidence supporting it) But even if somewhat grudgingly he vaccinates his daughter Whew We can still hang out; our children can still be friends I’m sort of joking…but the truth is I’m not sure what I would do if I found out that one of my playgroup buddies was an anti-vaxxer I really like those dudes And most of the kids have known each other so long they view each other as second cousins At this point especially since I rectified my earlier negligence my children are out of the danger zone Not all vaccines are 100% effective but I feel relatively safe Yet I remain rankled by the anti-vaxxers There is still a chance that my children could be a part of the unlucky few who are vaccine resistant Though the risk to my children is small there are other children who are too young for certain vaccines Anti-vaxxers are unnecessarily putting those kids in harm’s way (not to mention the potential danger to their own offspring) They are in fact banking on others getting vaccinated to protect their own children from the spread of disease It just seems so selfish Of course they believe that they are doing what is best for their kids and are likely discounting the exposure of other children I understand that injecting something into your child that you do not fully comprehend is scary Most parents are not scientists or doctors I’m certainly not I also understand that nothing I say is going to convince anti-vaxxers that vaccinations are safe; their minds are already made up Other people who are much smarter than I am have made a pretty compelling case for the efficacy of immunizations Yet the anti-vaxxer movement seems to be on the rise If you are on the fence I ask only that you don’t just do your “research” on anti-vaxxer websites That is not really research; it’s confirmation Not vaccinating your children is that odd family decision that has potential real life consequences outside your home It should come with a certain set of responsibilities If you have a gun in your house you are expected to safely secure it If you have decided not to immunize your children it is incumbent on you to make sure other children are not exposed to an unnecessary threat of infectious disease It may seem harsh to equate an innocent child with a loaded weapon but if that child comes into contact with a virus he is not immunized against the metaphor is apt Most of the time because of herd immunization unvaccinated children are not exposed to these diseases They are therefore harmless: unloaded and secured As we have seen with recent outbreaks however the safety of the herd does not hold up when too many people opt out If you are worried about anti-vaxxers in your playgroup you need to find out for yourself and not wait for other parents to bring it up It is not a topic you should debate (trust me you will not persuade your anti-vaxxer friend to immunize her child) but it is important to have the information If there are unimmunized children in the group consult your pediatrician about what increased risks there may be to your child Then you can make an informed decision about what is best for you and your family Lesser blogs at Amateur Idiot/Professional Dad You can follow him on Facebook and on Twitter (@amateuridiot) Contact us at editors@timecomA long time ago in a city far far away Andrew Garfield may have made your double tall skinny half-caf latte The 99 Homes star stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday to talk about his new thriller debut a new long hairdo and because this is Hollywood swap a few grooming tips (conditioner is a must apparently) before Kimmel asked him about being a struggling young actor That’s when Garfield admitted that like many other actors he moonlighted at Starbucks to pay the bills At first he was pretty excited about the job “I thought that’s the John Hughes movie I’ve been waiting to live within” said the actor envisioning spending his days caffeinating the “girls reading literature with black rimmed glasses” who loitered around the Golders Green outpost “I’m going to be the barista that woos them all and wins them all” he recounted to Kimmel “Or they realize after a period of months that in fact the skinny guy is the guy to go with” Strangely it did not work out exactly like that for him Contact us at editors@timecom TechRadar, and rounding her out would have taken away from the plot while adding time to an already very long movie.
