Commonwealth Bank of Australia CEO apologies for financial planning scandal

Category : Uncategorized

Thursday, July 3, 2014

Ian Narev, the CEO of the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, this morning “unreservedly” apologised to clients who lost money in a scandal involving the bank’s financial planning services arm.

Last week, a Senate enquiry found financial advisers from the Commonwealth Bank had made high-risk investments of clients’ money without the clients’ permission, resulting in hundreds of millions of dollars lost. The Senate enquiry called for a Royal Commission into the bank, and the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).

Mr Narev stated the bank’s performance in providing financial advice was “unacceptable”, and the bank was launching a scheme to compensate clients who lost money due to the planners’ actions.

In a statement Mr Narev said, “Poor advice provided by some of our advisers between 2003 and 2012 caused financial loss and distress and I am truly sorry for that. […] There have been changes in management, structure and culture. We have also invested in new systems, implemented new processes, enhanced adviser supervision and improved training.”

An investigation by Fairfax Media instigated the Senate inquiry into the Commonwealth Bank’s financial planning division and ASIC.

Whistleblower Jeff Morris, who reported the misconduct of the bank to ASIC six years ago, said in an article for The Sydney Morning Herald that neither the bank nor ASIC should be in control of the compensation program.

by

Christine.H

Crafting the right look for your living room is all about the sofa. As the most influential anchor in the room, your sofa can set the tone for a truly striking living space. Sofa sectionals are a great way make a statement and reshape the usage of a room large or small.

Whether youre redecorating or furnishing a living space from scratch, selecting a sectional should be done carefully, to ensure a good fit with your dcor and personal taste. Ask yourself a few questions up front for a living room that looks professionally appointed.

Would you describe your other furniture as modern or minimalist? Look for sectional sofas from Armen Living, Coaster, Diamond, or Global Living.

Are you furnishing a basement media room? Or is your sectional sofa for a social living room space? Will you be entertaining or relaxing? Or both? Consider the purpose(s) youll want your sofa to serve when you consider design style and upholstery options.

Small Spaces and Sofa Sectionals?

Why consider a sectional in a small space? Using a sofa sectional in an open-concept bachelor space is a great way to divide the room between living and dining or sleeping space. In super compact apartments, a sectional can be very functional, as long as the size is chosen carefully so as not to crowd the room.

If you do have a large room to fill, sectionals can meet that need too. Instead of restricting your size, opt for a large model of your favorite style. Add an extra connecting-joint seat for a wide U-shape or J-shape instead of the standard L-shape as best suits your space.

Sleeper Sofas and Custom Options

After youve chosen a style and size, move on to other options like sleeper models and custom fabrics. A combination like a sectional sleeper is tough to find, so you may have to sacrifice other specifics. Do you have a really particular colour or texture in mind? If your taste leans towards unique niche products and you know your sectional sofa simply must be blue or made of chenille, make sure youve searched with your highest priority first in case you have to relinquish a feature.

Shop for Your Sofa Set Right at Home

Finding the perfect sectional sofa in person can involve trips to one showroom after another, as you deal with limited selection, sales pressure, and busy retail spaces. Shopping online is a great way to take the time you need, in a relaxed atmosphere, to find the right fit for your specific style and space.

Runaway EMU train collides with freight train in India

Category : Uncategorized

Friday, May 1, 2009

At approximately 06:00 a.m. (00:30 GMT) Wednesday, between four and seven people were killed when an Electric Multiple Unit (EMU) passenger train crashed into a stationary freight train at Vyasarpadi Jeeva station, in Chennai, India. Between eleven and twenty persons were injured, and rushed to General Hospital in Chennai.

Officials are unsure of the number of persons aboard the passenger train, which was operated by an unknown person. “It is not clear who operated (it),” said S. Jayanth, acting general manager of Southern Railway. The operator of the EMU train was not in the train when it left 15 minutes to half an hour before the scheduled departure time. It is said some passengers did board the passenger train.

The EMU train ignored all signals, and drove about 7 kilometers (4 mi) at high speed, jumping tracks, before colliding with the goods train.

The driver of the goods train, Arumugam, has been confirmed as one of those who has died. The goods train was traveling between Arakkonam to Chennai. The motorman, guard and assistant jumped from the goods train sustaining fractures.

“We heard a loud noise and saw several compartments in flames. The smell emanating from bodies from the mangled coaches was nauseating,” said M.N. Selvi, a nearby resident.

The platforms at the Vyasarpadi Jeeva station were destroyed, and electrical cables were torn down. The EMU train caught fire in the collision destroying two compartments completely. The other compartments were thrown from the tracks. The freight train was loaded with oil tanks, however reports indicate that only the EMU train was set ablaze.

All train services were canceled for a time on one of the busiest rail lines of India. “Train services are disrupted due to the mishap but we hope to restore the services in two to three hours time,” an Indian Railways spokesperson.

Railways Minister Lalu Prasad announced that an inquiry will be held.

Netherlands beats Uruguay 3-2 in FIFA World Cup semifinals

Category : Uncategorized

Wednesday, July 7, 2010

The Netherlands defeated Uruguay in the semifinals of the 2010 FIFA World Cup on Tuesday. Uruguay was the last South American team holdout in the tournament. This year’s World Cup is is being hosted by South Africa.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst scored for the Dutch with a 35-yard shot in the eighteenth minute, while Uruguay’s Diego Forlan scored his fourth goal in this year’s World Cup to tie in the 41st minute.

However, after the Netherlands’ coach Bert van Marwijk replaced Demy de Zeeuw with attacker Rafael van der Vaart at halftime, the Dutch went on a roll, with Wesley Sneijder and Arjen Robben both scoring in the second half. They scored in quick succession, in the 70th and 73rd minutes, respectively. Uruguay later narrowed the Dutch’s lead to one point in injury time, but the orange-clad Dutch beat back late Uruguayan pressure after the injury time goal was scored.

The Dutch team was jubilant after their semifinal win. “This is unforgettable,” Sneijder said. “It was a tough fight and toward the end we complicated matters. Sunday we play in the World Cup final. I have to get used to that.”

Coach Bert van Marwijk was also happy. “This is very special. After 32 years we play the final again. Such a small country. We can be very proud of this.” Van Marwijk has been coach of the Netherlands for two years.

Fans of the Netherlands’ soccer team were wildly celebrating too. 45 minutes after the small Western European country won, many fans returned to Cape Town’s Green Point Stadium to see the players do a victory dance. Many of the fans beat drums and cheered “Holland! Holland! Holland!”

The Dutch will face either Spain or Germany Sunday in the World Cup finals. This will be their first World Cup final appearance since 1978, when they lost 3-1 to Argentina, who was playing on their home turf. The Dutch also lost the championship in 1974. Uruguay hadn’t appeared in the semifinals since 1970. However, they won the World Cup in 1930, and again in 1950, but they have since suffered a 60-year drought, which continues to this day.

New Zealand diplomats: Fiat using Maori haka in television ad is insensitive

Category : Uncategorized

Tuesday, July 4, 2006

Italian car company, Fiat, has used the haka to advertise its new car and New Zealand diplomats says it is culturally insensitive. The ads have gone to air in Italy and are viewable on their website.

The ad features woman wearing black and performing the haka: Ka Mate, which was written by the chief of Ng?ti Toa, Te Rauparaha. It is also the haka that is performed before every rugby game played by the New Zealand team, All Blacks.

The women perform the haka beside the new Fiat car and crowd noise is in the background to simulate the atmosphere in an All Blacks rugby match. As the haka is finished a woman drives away in the Fiat car and a boy in the back of the car pokes out his tongue, which is the action used to finish the haka.

The New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) said that they were told in April that an advertising company was planning to use the haka. Yesterday (July 3) Brad Tattersfield, a spokesman for MFAT, said “at the time we advised the advertising company that the use of Ka Mate in this way was culturally insensitive and inappropriate. MFAT advised the advertisers to either use a Maori group or a haka composed for women. However, the advertising company indicated they were proceeding despite this advice.”

Garry Nicholas, general manager of Te Toi Aoteroa, which promotes and protects Maori art and culture, said that he felt mixed feelings about the ad. “This isn’t a haka in my view but is certainly based on haka. It’s meant to be in fun and the little boy poking his tongue at the end of the clip makes that very clear.”

Sheer Nightwear A Lingerie Must Have

Category : Hair

By Adrian Jones

Every girl has her personal version of nightwear. For many women, it consists of very unglamorous large t-shirts and knit pants. We might indulge in something sexier like silk lingerie, but then only wear it on special occasions. But for everyday, we just pull out the cozy cotton stuff and hop into bed.

Why save the sexy ladies nightwear only for special occasions? If the last time you wore sheer nightwear was your wedding night, it’s time for you to update your lingerie closet. Today, there are so many choices in ladies nightwear.

Ladies nightwear can be overwhelming if you have never really considered wearing anything other than that old t-shirt belonging to an ex-boyfriend to bed. But have no fear, you can even find discount lingerie these days that is incredibly comfortable and fun. Head to your nearest brick and mortar or web-based discount store and browse the lingerie sections. Look at all your options from long gowns to sexy babydoll sets. Many women dislike shopping for lingerie; just think of it as an adventure, a simple way to add spice to your life. Think of coming home after a hard day at work, taking a long hot bath and slipping into a piece of silk lingerie. See, you feel more relaxed just thinking about it. So stop procrastinating and start shopping.

Sheer nightwear will always be a top choice among men. Sheer lingerie gives that illusion of being within sight but just out-of-reach. Many types of ladies nightwear incorporate sheer elements into their design. Babydoll lingerie and teddies are especially sexy pieces when they have sheer fabric. Sheer nightwear allows you to have the peek-a-boo effect with the part of your body you wish to highlight. No lover can resist the temptation to reach out and look with their hands as well as their eyes.

Silk lingerie is a sensual choice for special occasions. Many of us had silk for our wedding lingerie. However, as a natural fiber, silk is a great option for everyday ladies’ nightwear as well. Silk lingerie is comfortable and lightweight. Yet silk can also be very warm. You don’t need to wear that bulky flannel nightgown to bed, try a simple silk one instead. You might be pleasantly surprised; your bed partner certainly will be.

Exactly why does any woman need to own sexy nightwear? The obvious answer is for pure and simple sex appeal. When you look sexy, your partner is more likely to act upon that sex appeal. But, you say, what about all the other nights of the week? Many women think the lingerie nightwear is uncomfortable or just for showing off and then removing. That could not be further from the truth. Today’s ladies nightwear comes in every fabric type from cotton to nylon. It also comes in every style desirable. So if you really like babydoll lingerie but hate the feeling of nylon, get a set in comfy cotton. For women who prefer more substantial clothing, try a pair of silk lounge pants with a matching chemise top. You can’t use price as an excuse because discount lingerie is as close as your computer and a quick web search.

As a woman, you know how fabulous you feel on a good hair day. If you have a wonderful piece of ladies sheer nightwear, every night could be a version of a good hair day. You might even get a better night’s sleep.
