first_imgNew Delhi: State Bank of India (SBI) on Wednesday said it is planning to dilute stake in its card business through the initial public offer (IPO) route. The country’s largest lender currently holds 74 per cent stake in SBI Cards & Payment Services Private Limited. The Executive Committee of Central Board of the bank at its meeting held on Wednesday “has given in-principle approval to explore the possibility of diluting SBI’s stake in SBI Cards & Payment Services Private Limited, a subsidiary company through IPO route at an opportune time, subject to the approval of RBI and other regulatory agencies in this regard,” the bank said in a regulatory filing. Further, specific disclosures on offer for sale (OFS) by promoters will be be given, once the same is finalised by the bank, it said. The bank had launched SBI Card in October 1998. In December 2017, SBI and the Carlyle Group acquired GE Capital’s stake in the joint venture. SBI holds 74 per cent, while Carlyle holds 26 per cent in the JV. Currently, the bank has a consumer base of about 6 million using its SBI Card services.last_img read more

first_imgWASHINGTON — Canada’s former ambassador to China might have committed an unforgivable diplomatic gaffe when he sized up the case against Meng Wanzhou, but that doesn’t mean his assessment was wrong.So say legal experts who have examined the public details of the case against Huawei’s chief financial officer, who is free on bail in Vancouver and facing extradition to the U.S. to answer to bank fraud, wire fraud and conspiracy charges.Ambassador John McCallum lost his job last month after publicly detailing reasons he believed Meng has a strong case to make in fighting the extradition order.Henry Chang, a Toronto-based immigration lawyer who specializes in cross-border issues, says the political overtones — President Donald Trump has publicly expressed a willingness to intervene — will allow Meng to argue the charges are politically motivated, and the extradition request an abuse of process.In an analysis to be released later today, Chang also says because the alleged crimes occurred outside North America, there’s a chance Justice Minister David Lametti could refuse to surrender Meng on the grounds that neither Canada nor the U.S. has jurisdiction.Wesley Wark, a University of Ottawa professor and national-security specialist, says he believes the case against Meng is weak, especially when compared with other similar extradition cases involving Canada over the years.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Eager to get to the bottom of the Oil-for- Food scandal, the UN is willing to work with Congress wherever possible, Mark Malloch Brown stressed during meetings with a number of leading members of Congress – both Republican and Democrat – from the US Senate and House of Representatives, according to a read-out provided by a UN spokesman in New York.Mr. Malloch Brown also discussed the UN’s ongoing management and administrative reforms, including in the areas of transparency, strengthening of audit practices, procurement and whistleblower protection.From all sides, he heard “strong base-line support for the United Nations,” the read-out said. Members of Congress expressed willingness to work with the Secretary-General as he leads the reform process.On Oil-for-Food, congressional members also expressed concern about lack of access to UN documents and UN staff for their own investigations. Mr. Malloch Brown, the Secretary-General’s Chef de Cabinet, pointed out that the UN is currently cooperating fully, both in terms of personnel and documents, with the Independent Inquiry Committee (IIC) led by former US Federal Reserve Board Chairman Paul Volcker.Once the IIC has completed its work, the United Nations will be available to answer any questions that remain, he said.The Oil-for-Food Programme was a temporary relief scheme set up by the Security Council in 1995 to ease the plight of the Iraqi people, who were suffering under the twin pressures of Saddam Hussein’s brutal dictatorship and international sanctions. It allowed Iraq to sell its petroleum and use a portion of the revenues to purchase food and civilian supplies.The humanitarian relief effort succeeded in preventing a deterioration of living standards, for example cutting malnutrition among children by half and eliminating polio. When allegations first emerged that Saddam Hussein illegally exploited the Programme, the Secretary-General recruited Mr. Volcker to lead an independent inquiry.In a report released last week, the IIC issued findings against two UN staffers – including the former head of the Oil-for-Food Programme, Benon Sevan – who were immediately suspended by Mr. Annan.Disciplinary proceedings are continuing. The Secretary-General has pledged to waive diplomatic immunity should any criminal charges be pressed. read more

But isn’t the City officials’ covering up the sexual violation of a child by one of their evident “own” a direct replication of the PNC hierarchy’s covering up for their “own” in the said City Council?While most right-thinking folks would recoil at the rape of a troubled youth by a City Constable — whose duty was to protect him — wasn’t the Mayor, Town Clerk and her other two colleagues — all members of the PNC — signing of the secret — and illegal — Parking Meter Contract also an attempted rape of the entire city of Georgetown? And wasn’t it covered up? Weren’t we all violated when we were threatened with a fleecing that puts those champion Aussie shearers to shame?Imagine the Chairman of the PNC — who just happens to be the Attorney General — and the Minister of Finance both highlighted the potential damage the contractual rape would’ve inflicted on the parking public — not a word was uttered to stop the outrage. In fact, the Minister of Communities waived his power to intervene in a municipal manner by signing off the necessary by-laws!!As your Eyewitness pointed out then, this PNC code of “omerta” is more effective than the Mafia’s:  they only kill the person “snitch”, the PNC cut off access to the public purse — and you know, dear reader, money speaks louder than bullets!! So, even after the scandal of the secret rape contract was exposed, the mayor was REWARDED with a position on the PNC Executive Committee!So, dear reader, let’s return to the sordid rape of the ‘wandering” boy by the City Constable; actually, Lance Corporal. Seems this wasn’t even the first time the fella had done his despicable act — and the Gang of Four knew of it, because the matter was sent to the DPP. The latter didn’t press charges because the violated boy had “decided” not to testify. And we all know what determined THAT “decision”!Truth is: the Gang of Four controls a city administration that’s in a perpetual “shake down” mode over the citizens of Georgetown.Like the old Tammany Hall ward bosses of yore in the US, the Gang of Four will be untouched, because they are expected to get out the votes, come 2020.So what if our children are violated? “Collateral damage”!…at the homeless Indian MonumentThe Monument to the Indian Immigrants was years in the making. Built by and in India, it was shipped to Guyana since January 2016. It retraced the trip across the “kala pani” that the original immigrants had taken. Designed by local Guyanese artists, it was supposed to get a permanent home in time for the 100th anniversary of the Abolition of Indian Indentureship, on March 12, 2017.But like those Indians who struck out for Europe hundreds of years ago and earned the name “gypsies”, which is synonymous with wandering and having no fixed abode, this seems to have become the fate of the Indian Monument. The PNC-led APNU/AFC government was supposed to take the baton from the ousted PPP Administration, but dropped it like a hot potato!They brought in from Linden a “contractor” with absolutely NO experience to build the base, and yet expressed surprise the structure fell down like Humpty Dumpy!!Maybe the homelessness of the Monument is the Government’s message to Indian Guyanese?…on environmental adviceRear Admiral Gary Best was appointed Presidential Advisor on the Environment.

first_imgOne of the big disadvantages a mobile customer considering the Verizon iPhone over one from AT&T needs to consider is the way CDMA networks handle simultaneous data and voice: they don’t. Consequently, if you buy a Verizon iPhone, pick up a call, then need to consult Google Maps, you can’t just put your call on speaker and start browsing: you need to hang up, do your browsing, then call your friend back. What a pain. If anyone could have figured out a way to change this, it would have been Apple before launching the iPhone 4 on Verizon, which strongly suggests that simultaneous data and voice just can’t be done on the Verizon network.So we’re intrigued mightily by this purported leak passed onto Phandroid, claiming that the upcoming HTC Thunderbolt will not only be coming to Verizon, but support simultaneous voice and 3G.It’s not going to do it elegantly, though. According to the leak, Verizon “cannot promise the experience will be one that is consistent with [the] brand” and so are advising sales people to “not reference this functionality as a benefit during your conversations with customers.In other words, expect a bumpy road. Perhaps that explains why the Verizon iPhone doesn’t do it: it can be done, but it’s not up to Apple’s standards for excellence.Read more at Phandroidlast_img read more

Nicosia Town Hall in Cyprus went green in 2018. Source: Tourism IrelandGibbons said today that there had been a somewhat “tongue-in-cheek” request to see Buckingham Palace go green but that this was politely declined.The tourism chief added that the project cost is less than €30,000 and is thanks in large part to Irish people living abroad and the Department of Foreign Affairs. “The Irish diaspora have played a key role in relation to this, there are 70 million people abroad but the Irish societies in places like Philadelphia and Chicago and Sydney, Singapore play a huge role in driving this project forward as well as the local tourism Ireland teams and our ambassadors and consuls general,” he said.

first_imgA coordinated effort on behalf of parents of Strathmore Secondary students, community organisations and politicians of Greek heritage has seen this week the Greek language VCE classes’ reinstatement to the College.Earlier this month the school management had decided that due to the small number of VCE students it was unfeasible for the school to offer the Greek VCE classes in 2019, encouraging those students who chose to study the subject to seek alternative solutions outside the school to do so.The decision angered the parents of those students who immediately expressed their disappointment to the principal of the school and sought the help of the Greek Community of Melbourne, federal politician Maria Vamvakinou, state Minister Jenny Mikakos as well as state Member for Oakleigh Steve Dimopoulos, to intervene in order to persuade the management of the school to reverse its decision.The principal of Starthmore Secondary Jillian English put forward the point that the introduction of a combined class for Year 11 & 12 Greek language students will not benefit the students and will be an impediment to their performance.After the intervention of Greek Community of Melbourne Vice President, Theo Markos, a meeting between himself, Ms English and a Victorian Department of Education official was organised during which the principal was convinced that combined VCE classes are a common occurrence for subjects with low attendance numbers and the stalemate was resolved, with the principal deciding the reinstatement of the Greek language VCE classes.“We are pleased to have found a workable solution to deliver VCE Modern Greek at Strathmore Secondary College in 2019. We determine our College’s teaching and learning program through careful, balanced and objective consideration of multiple factors that put the needs of students at its heart. Thank you for your understanding” stated the principal after the latest developments.It should be noted that Neos Kosmos understands that the VCE classes at Strathmore will be attended, roughly, by about 10 Year 11& 12 students, while Year 7 Greek language classes will be bustling in 2019 hosting around 70 new students. Taking that into consideration Greek language VCE classes can avoid being axed in the years to come as long as there is a concerted effort on behalf of parents to encourage their children to take the subject at VCE level.In the meantime another Greek language program, the one at West Coburg Primary is facing an uncertain future next year as the principal Mark Cologrande during a meeting with parents and Theo Markos informed them that from the beginning of 2019 he will initiate a consultation process which will involve all relevant stakeholders including representatives from the Greek community and especially those who reside in the school zone. The outcome of the consultation process will inform the review of the continuation of the Greek language program which will follow. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

first_imgDespite being thousands of kilometres away from his home in Athens, Stefanos Tsitsipas has more support behind him than he could have imagined as he prepares to go head-to-head with Spaniard Rafael Nadal on Thursday in the Australian Open semifinals.Along with members of the Greek Australian community who have been turning out each round to cheer him on, the 20-year-old also has the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia on his side.The Archdiocese’s central offices in Sydney released an official statement on Wednesday, warmly addressed “To our beloved child Stefanos”.It reads as follows:“His Eminence Archbishop Stylianos Primate of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia, together with his Assistant Bishops, Clergy and the whole of the Greek community, admires and is very proud of all your achievements thus far in your career.“We wish you wholeheartedly all the very best for tomorrow’s match and hope you are victorious so that you may bring pride and glory once again to our homeland Greece, and to all of us.“May God strengthen you; bless your life and all your endeavours.”A copy of the official statement released by the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia on Wednesday.Tsitsipas comes off the back of an impressive win against Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut on Tuesday 7-5, 4-6, 6-4, 7-6 (7-2), and before that beat his childhood hero, tennis star great Roger Federer 6-7, 7-6, 7-5, 7-6.Next he will come to face Nadal on Rod Laver Arena. Ranked number 2, the Spaniard from Mallorca has yet to lose a single set in the Grand Slam.The 32-year-old defeated Francis Tiafoe on Wednesday night (6-3, 6-4, 6-2) to reach the semifinals.But the young Greek star wasn’t showing any signs of intimidation in Tuesday’s press conference. On the contrary, he confidently revealed he knows the secret against Nadal’s play-style.“I got really stubborn last time I lost (against him). That’s when I told myself that the next time I get the opportunity to play him, I need to do better. I said then that I can beat him, because I know how he plays. I didn’t want that to come out wrong, but I really feel like I can do it. I have really studied the strategies he uses and it’ll be a great joy to just go out there, play some good tennis and leave with the win. I really want this,” he said.
