Biggest bank in Japan eyes overseas buys

first_imgTuesday 21 September 2010 7:21 pm whatsapp KCS-content Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MUFG), Japan’s biggest bank by assets, is looking to buy a 15 to 20 per cent stake in a bank in South Korea, Australia or Indonesia to tap the region’s growing economy, a senior executive has revealed.Tatsuo Tanaka, chief executive of global banking at Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, the firm’s core banking unit, said yesterday that the bank was also eyeing five to seven midsize and 10-20 small US banks for possible acquisitions.He added that the bank would wait for more clarity on Basel III capital rules before it goes after a bigger bank.“In Asia, we are always looking for a target. Not necessarily to acquire but to take a stake,” Tanaka said. “We want to build relationships first as we search for a target.”MUFG and its domestic rivals Mizuho Financial Group and Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group have been stepping up their overseas expansion in the face of weak growth prospects at home.Japanese banks emerged from the global financial crisis less scathed than some of their western rivals, but their main lending activities remain sluggish as businesses and households curtail spending amid economic uncertainty.Earlier this month, Mizuho, Japan’s second-largest bank, said it was looking to acquire commercial banks in Asia to expand in the fast-growing region, while expressing little interest in buying a US bank.Tanaka, 61, joined the Bank of Tokyo in 1973, rising through the ranks of corporate finance and overseas operations, including a stint in Hong Kong.MUFG is one of Japan’s most active lenders in overseas expansion with a sizable presence in the United States. It bought out UnionBanCal, a holding company of California-based Union Bank, in 2008 and spent $9bn (£5.8bn) for a 21 per cent stake in Morgan Stanley at the height of the financial crisis.

May 2011, nature devastates Lorca, the house inherited from their grandparents destroyed, their inhabitants recover the pieces of what has remained, they are kept, are their memories, are their history. Plot of patches and fruit trees. From southeast to southwest the mountain of Peñarrubia. Keys: The place, inhabitants and their memories linked to her stuff, their furniture, their woodworks, their objects. Save this picture!© David Frutos RuizIn a different location from the former home, from sandstone emerges in front of the mountain, the house is one more element in a place, a settled landscape – stones, trees , ploughed land – the house comes up from the ground, arid , to merge into the green that already exists. Attached blocks, addition of units, additive architecture, gathers and segregate spaces, it´s intimacy and meeting.Save this picture!© David Frutos RuizFacing the access path the house is hermetic. You walk into the plot and walk along the road that goes to the end, to the mountain, the volumes are broken inwards, the house opens to sun, to landscape. Save this picture!© David Frutos RuizYou access through the porch, there is no hall, a it is a house for the family, the friends, there is no protocol, the main entrance was left behind in the fencing, each individual can get in and out from his bed, freedom of movement among its inhabitants, protected from what stays behind, the cars, the noise, the week …, it´s to disconnect. From the green shade of the porch to spaces that ennoble family life, the life of meeting, the willingness of having a family get together, the skylights are high above the living room´s table and the dining room´s table, it´s a tribute to home life.Save this picture!© David Frutos RuizThe nature enters filtered, framed and tamed through gaps, – Majorcan shutter, window, inner shutter ( those of his old house ) – light and sound filters; the landscape enters limited without overwhelming because on the inside the inhabitant wants to live with its history,  if the gap is too large nature would devour their little things. Each room has its place in the landscape, when you sleep, when you read, when you meet somebody. The house tries to live together with the land and with the memory of the inhabitants, discreet between them both, trying to make feelings flow, sensations that touch to the inhabitant, to the visitor, give an answer to human matters. A language that speaks of the place arises, it belongs to the inhabitant, frames his memory.Save this picture!Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessStoaninger Mühlviertel Destillation / HPSASelected ProjectsMirador Pocuro Building / SEARLE PUGA arquitectosSelected Projects Share Save this picture!© David Frutos Ruiz+ 27 Share Photographs 2012 Year:  Architects: Pepa Díaz Area Area of this architecture project Spain Elvira House / Pepa DíazSave this projectSaveElvira House / Pepa Díaz CopyHouses•Lorca, Spain Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/436501/elvira-house-pepa-diaz Clipboard Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/436501/elvira-house-pepa-diaz Clipboard 2012 “COPY” “COPY” ArchDaily Area:  170 m² Area:  170 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Elvira House / Pepa Díaz Year: last_img read more

Workers World/Mundo Obrero exige: ¡Alto al bombardeo de Gaza! ¡Liberar a Palestina! ¡Detener la ayuda de Estados Unidos a Israel!

first_imgWorkers World Party/ Partido Mundo Obrero condena en los términos más enérgicos el asalto genocida del ejército sionista israelí contra el pueblo de Gaza – llamada la mayor prisión al aire libre del mundo y situada en la Palestina ocupada. Esta última batalla es una tragedia más en el continuo desplazamiento de los palestinos de su tierra por parte de los colonos sionistas. Protesta contra el bombardeo israelí de Gaza, respaldado por Estados Unidos, el 12 de mayo en Times Square, Nueva York. (WW Photo: Toni Arenstein)Este ataque se produce durante el Eid Mubarak, que señala el final del Ramadán para millones de musulmanes de todo el mundo. El WWP/PMO se suma a las organizaciones que celebran cientos de acciones mundiales en solidaridad con los gazatíes y el pueblo palestino en general, que llevan décadas luchando heroicamente por recuperar su patria robada. (Visita samidoun.net/events/ para encontrar una protesta cerca de ti). Hasta el 14 de mayo, según el noticiero AlJazeera, los ataques aéreos israelíes habían matado a 122 palestinos, y el número de muertos sigue aumentando junto con los cerca de 1.000 heridos. Entre los muertos hay más de 30 niños.Israel está aterrorizando a los residentes en edificios de apartamentos y casas día y noche, bajo el erróneo pretexto de “defenderse de los terroristas”. El grupo de liberación palestino Hamás y sus aliados en Líbano han estado defendiendo Gaza lanzando cohetes contra Israel, que en realidad no son rivales para las Fuerzas de Defensa israelíes, armadas hasta los dientes por el gobierno de Estados Unidos.Israel amenaza con enviar tropas de tierra a Gaza. AlJazeera también informó que siete manifestantes palestinos fueron asesinados en Cisjordania por las FDI. 73 años de resistencia Fue el 15 de mayo de 1948 cuando los palestinos fueron desplazados violentamente de su patria ancestral mediante la creación de Israel por parte de los británicos y otros imperialistas occidentales, con el fin de controlar la región rica en petróleo conocida como Oriente Medio. El nombre de este desplazamiento es Nakba, la palabra árabe para desastre, que el pueblo palestino y sus partidarios han conmemorado durante los últimos 73 años. Israel existe para proteger los intereses del imperialismo estadounidense -los lucrativos beneficios del petróleo- como un estado de guarnición militar que amenaza y ataca a los países ricos en petróleo de la región que se atreven a luchar por la soberanía sobre su tierra y sus recursos. Mientras millones de personas en Estados Unidos han sufrido el desempleo, el hambre y la amenaza de desahucios durante la pandemia, Estados Unidos sigue apuntalando el régimen asesino israelí con $3.000 millones anuales en ayuda militar. Piensa en el alivio que esa sola cantidad podría suponer para el pueblo de Estados Unidos si no se utilizara para reprimir y ocupar a toda una nación… Al igual que todos los presidentes que le precedieron desde 1948, demócratas y republicanos, el presidente Joe Biden declaró que “Israel tenía derecho a defenderse”.Como Susie Abulhawa, escritora y activista palestina, dijo a WW: “Lo que le ha ocurrido a Gaza en los últimos cuatro días sólo es noticia porque Gaza se está defendiendo de los ataques israelíes respaldados por Estados Unidos. No hay un signo de igualdad entre defenderse con el lanzamiento de cohetes desde el suelo frente a los potentes ataques aéreos. No hay un solo día en el que no se ejerza algún tipo de violencia sobre la población de Gaza o de cualquier otra parte de la Palestina ocupada que no sea informado por las fuentes principales”.Exigimos: Detener el bombardeo de Gaza. ¡Detener la ayuda de Estados Unidos a Israel! ¡Liberen a Palestina!

Survey of blocked Uyghur websites shows Xinjiang still cut off from the world

first_img to go further October 29, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Survey of blocked Uyghur websites shows Xinjiang still cut off from the world Help by sharing this information ChinaAsia – Pacific RSF_en Reporters Without Borders has surveyed access to websites dedicated to the Uyghur community, including sites in the Uyghur language, in Mandarin and sometimes in English. These sites, operated by Uyghurs for Uyghurs, are for the most part inaccessible both to Internet users based in Xinjiang and those abroad. More than 85 per cent of the surveyed sites were blocked, censored or otherwise unreachable.“The discrimination to which Uyghurs have been subjected for decades as regards their freedom of expression and their religious and economic freedom now applies to their Internet access as well,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Four months after the violence in Urumqi, the Chinese authorities continue to keep the province cut off from the rest of the world. We must not be duped by the illusion of normality. Most Uyghurs still cannot go online, send SMS messages or even make phone calls.” The press freedom organisation added: “The official reason given for this blackout, that ‘terrorists used the Internet and SMS messaging,’ is unacceptable. Do the Pakistani or Afghan authorities suspend the Internet because terrorists sent email messages? No. The Chinese government seems more interested in preventing Xinjiang’s inhabitants from circulating information about the real situation in the province, especially about the crackdown after the July riots.”Reporters Without Borders urges the authorities to restore Internet and phone connections in Xinjiang without delay. “The dozens of websites in the Uyghur language and websites about Xinjiang that have been closed must be allowed to reopen and those who edit them must have freedom of movement,” the organisation added.Carried out in October, the survey examined around 100 Uyghur websites, portals, forums, blogs and other kinds of online platform. Various factors were considered, such as the country in which the site is based, the type of site (such as forum or blog), the type of content (such as news, politics, culture or sport), the language, and the problems encountered when the attempt was made to visit the site (such as change of address, overly long delay in opening or error message).The results highlight the degree of paralysis of the Uyghur Internet during the pasts four months. The more than 85 per cent of the sites that are inaccessible include very popular ones such as Diyarim (www.diyarim.com), Xabnam (www.xabnam.com) and Ulinix (www.ulinix.com), a site registered in the name of the University of Xinjiang that served as a portal.More than half of the websites – including Uzmakan (www.uzmakan.com) and Uzonline (www.uzonline.net), whose addresses refer explicitly to the Uyghur community – are inaccessible because of interminable connection delays. Others have for months been displaying temporary error messages, which disguise the fact that they have been closed down for good.The few accessible sites such as Uighurbiz (www.uighurbiz.net) are based in other countries, often the United States, where there is a sizable Uyghur diaspora, or are based in China but have a content that is in no way political and have no sensitive information, such as Blogbus (www.qutyar.blogbus.com).Some sites are the victims of targeted censorship. The news section of the Gazina website (www.gazina.com) was inaccessible during the survey but its music and cinema sections were working. The Akburkut (www.akburkut.com), Tahdir (bbs.tahdir.com), Uyghurum (www.uyghurum.net) and Karamet (http://karamet.5d6d.com) websites did not let visitors register in order to post messages.Many reports have confirmed Xinjiang’s isolation since July 2009 and the severe problems being encountered by Internet café owners, online stores, and students while they wait for the Internet to resume working. Ordinary residents are also hard put to send or receive emails or text messages.The Chinese authorities meanwhile continue to regularly censor websites in general. An average of one site is shut down every two days. This is what happened on 24 October, for example, to the blogs on the Free China Forum (http://zyzg.us.), one of the most influential political debate platforms. Similarly, Window of Southern Breeze, a website linked to the Guangzhou Daily News Corporation’s online magazine, was blocked on 26 October after it posted an article from the 21 October print issue about incidents involving the police. Other sites that had reproduced the article had to remove it.Reporters Without Borders is also worried by the arrest of Uyghur journalist Hailaite Niyazi, the former editor of the Uighurbiz website, on 1 October. His family was told three days later that he was suspected of “endangering national security.” His arrest appears to have been prompted by an interview he gave about the Xinjiang regional government’s attitude to the riots. Uighurbiz has been accused several times in the past of “encouraging violence” in Xinjiang.

LIT graduates celebrate equal access to Education

first_imgTwitter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Equal access to education is paramount to a country of equal opportunities, and Limerick Institute of Technology continues to provide such equality of access to higher education through numerous programmes and courses.That was the message from Minister of State for Disability Issues, Finian McGrath TD, as he congratulated the 37 students from the Leadership, Advocacy and Independent Living programme and the Campaigning for Human Rights and Equality pilot programme, during their graduation at LIT, Moylish campus.In his address to the class of 2019 Minister McGrath said, “I am delighted to be invited back again to LIT to this year’s graduation ceremony. I really enjoyed it last year and I was very impressed to see the work LIT are doing in developing new courses. Equal opportunity is paramount to what defines a country. In Ireland, we are committed to increasing equity of access to higher education for all students. In building an inclusive society, one of the cornerstones must be equality of opportunity. All students should be given the same opportunity to study on equal terms, regardless of ability or needs.” Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The 37 new graduates join an alumni of almost 200 who have already completed the courses in LIT’s Moylish, Thurles and Ennis campuses.The Advocacy Leadership and Independent Living programme for people with intellectual disabilities was set up by LIT in 2009, in partnership with disability service providers in the greater Limerick, Clare, Tipperary are North Cork areas. This year saw the new follow-on course piloted in Ennis – Campaigning for Human Rights and Equality. Cathy Jones, Head of Department in Applied Social Sciences, LIT said, “Our Department is very privileged to host these programmes. They bring richness and diversity to our suite of programmes and allows for co-learning across the department’s student body. For example, our Social Care students hear first-hand about the experiences and wishes of people with disabilities, which will enhance and inform their future practice.”“Today is a great celebration of the achievement of these 37 students, and we are delighted that our experience of running the Advocacy Leadership and Independent Living course has led to the development of the Campaigning for Human Rights and Equality programme which we piloted in Ennis this year. It was a great success and we look forward to rolling it out in our Moylish, Limerick Campus in the next academic year.” TAGSlimerickLimerick Institute of Technology (LIT) Previous articleTwo Limerick lads chosen as Rose of Tralee escortsNext articleA life shaped by grief and healing Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash Linkedin Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live center_img Email NewsEducationLimerickLIT graduates celebrate equal access to EducationBy Alan Jacques – June 24, 2019 112 Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Facebook Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League opener Advertisement Print WhatsApplast_img read more
