UN food agency appeals for help to avert deepening crisis in Central

17 April 2007The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) today appealed for increased international donor support to avert a deepening humanitarian crisis in the Central African Republic (CAR), where hundreds of thousands of people displaced by war and civil conflict are in urgent need of food assistance. The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) today appealed for increased international donor support to avert a deepening humanitarian crisis in the Central African Republic (CAR), where hundreds of thousands of people displaced by war and civil conflict are in urgent need of food assistance. “The humanitarian situation in CAR is serious, and getting worse as a result of the violence and conflict spilling over from Darfur,” said WFP Executive Director Josette Sheeran. “We need to increase our operations to cover the food needs of 230,000 people in this growing emergency.” The appeal comes ahead of Ms. Sheeran’s visit to Ethiopia, Sudan and Chad next week, where she will assess the impact of the spill-over of the Darfur conflict in neighbouring Sudan for WFP operations in the region. Her visit will follow on the visit to Sudan and the Central African region in early April by Under Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs John Holmes, who also focussed on the worsening situation in the often-overlooked emergency in CAR. WFP is more than doubling its budget and scaling up its aid operations nearly six-fold to reach 230,000 people within CAR whose lives have been savaged by the ongoing violence. Another 20,000 Central Africans who have fled west into Cameroon are targeted through a new WFP operation, while close to 50,000 refugees are already receiving WFP assistance in camps in southern Chad. Total cost for this humanitarian effort is likely to exceed $50 million. In CAR alone, the newly expanded operation is budgeted at $44 million, but donor contributions to date amount to $14 million. read more

Toronto market moves lower despite rosy economic data as commodity prices mixed

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – The Toronto stock market was squarely in the red Thursday afternoon as commodity prices lost ground on lingering “fiscal cliff” fears despite some data painting a relatively rosy picture of the North American economy.The S&P/TSX composite index was down 29.75 points at 12,373.88, while the TSX Venture Exchange was down 5.42 points at 1,171.1.Wall street rebounded from earlier losses as traders digested some largely positive messages on the state of the economy. The Dow Jones average added 28.09 points to 13,280.06, the Nasdaq moved 3.99 points higher to 3,048.35 and the S&P rose 5.11 points to 1,440.92.“We got the good news on both sides (of the border) … but the big thing is the fiscal cliff worries are overshadowing the positive economic data,” said Jennifer Dowty, portfolio manager for Manulife Asset Management.“It appears like we’re going to go down to the wire on this one.”Investors remain focused on budget talks in Washington.The Republican-controlled House pushed ahead Thursday with a bill that would raise taxes on people earning over $1 million a year as hopes faded for a pre-Christmas deal between President Barack Obama and Speaker John Boehner to avert the so-called “fiscal cliff.”Democratic leaders vowed to let the House measure die in the Senate without a vote and urged Boehner to return to the negotiating table.“If you get any sort of indication that perhaps negotiations are advancing and we get to any sort of agreement then the market will rally on that,” Dowty said.“It’s very predicated on any news and that’s why you’re seeing heightened interday volatility as well.”The Canadian dollar turned around earlier losses to add 0.06 of a cent at 101.26 cents US as commodities prices were mixed but Statistics Canada released some positive data on retail sales and payrolls.The February oil contract added 16 cents to US$90.14 a barrel and February gold futures were down $20.20 to US$1,647.50 an ounce. Copper prices shed seven cents to US$3.54 a pound.Statistics Canada said average weekly earnings of non-farm payroll employees rose to $909 in October, up 0.9 per cent from September.On a year-over-year basis, earnings were up 2.8 per cent. That reflected a number of factors, including wage growth and changes in the composition of employment by industry as well as the average number of hours worked.Statistics Canada also reported retail sales edged up 0.7 per cent to $39.4 billion in October, the fourth straight monthly increase. In volume terms, retail sales increased 0.3 per cent, with eight of 11 subsectors reporting gains.The U.S. economy grew at an annual rate of 3.1 per cent over the July-September quarter as consumers spent more and state and local governments added to growth for the first time in nearly three years. But the economy is likely slowing in the current quarter.The U.S. Commerce Department’s third and final estimate Thursday of growth for the July-September quarter was revised up from its previous estimate of a 2.7 per cent annual growth rate.However, the number of Americans applying for unemployment benefits rose last week by 17,000, reversing four weeks of declines. The Labour Department reports that a seasonally adjusted 361,000 people sought unemployment aid the week ended Dec. 15, up from a revised 344,000 the week before.Meanwhile, sales of previously occupied homes in the United States jumped to their highest level in three years last month, bolstered by steady job gains and record-low mortgage rates.The National Association of Realtors said Thursday that sales rose 5.9 per cent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.04 million in November. That’s up from 4.76 million in October.Traders also took in news that IntercontinentalExchange Inc. has signed a friendly agreement to buy NYSE Euronext for about $8.2 billion in cash and stock, a deal that would create an industry giant that includes the New York Stock Exchange and other securities markets.In Canadian corporate news, Bombardier Inc. (TSX:BBD.B) has a firm deal to sell at least 10 of its new CSeries passenger jets to AirBaltic, which has an option to buy an additional 10 planes. The Latvian airline’s firm order has a list value of US$764 million. The deal could be worth up to US$1.57 billion if AirBaltic fully exercises options to buy an additional 10 Bombardier CS300s.It’s the second major announcement regarding the new-generation CSeries planes by the Montreal-based aerospace company this week. Bombardier said Thursday that an unidentified airline based in the Americas had signed a letter of intent to buy 12 to 30 CSeries planes, worth up to US$2.08 billion. Shares added 10 cents to $3.67.After markets close Thursday, traders will get the last peek into RIM’s (TSX:RIM) financials before it releases its much anticipated new line of smartphones in the new year. Shares were up 25 cents to $13.74.Analysts will be closely watching the company’s cash volume and subscriber numbers after the BlackBerry-maker surprised in the last quarter with better than expected numbers on both fronts.RIM has already said it expects to report an operating loss in its most recent quarter. Analysts are expecting a quarterly loss of 32 cents per adjusted share on revenue of $2.6 billion. by Sunny Freeman, The Canadian Press Posted Dec 20, 2012 2:44 pm MDT Toronto market moves lower despite rosy economic data as commodity prices mixed read more

Mostly female antipoaching unit from South Africa wins top UN environmental prize

By bestowing its Champions of the Earth award to the Black Mambas, in the Inspiration and Action category, the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) is recognizing the “rapid and impressive impact” the unit has made in combatting poaching and the courage required to accomplish this task, the agency said in a news release issued yesterday.“Community-led initiatives are crucial to combatting the illegal wildlife trade and the Black Mambas highlight the importance and effectiveness of local knowledge and commitment,” said UNEP Executive Director Achim Steiner.“Their many successes are a result of their impressive courage and determination to make a difference in their community. The Black Mambas are an inspiration not only locally, but across the world to all those working to eliminate the scourge of the illegal wildlife trade.”Since its inception in 2013, the 26-member unit has helped arrest six poachers, reduced snaring by 76 per cent, removed over 1,000 snares and put 5 poachers’ camps and 2 bush meat kitchens out of action.The area that they protect, the Balule Private Game Reserve, is home to an abundance of wildlife – including not only rhino but leopards, lions, elephants, cheetahs and hippos. It is part of the Greater Kruger National Park, a network of over 2 million hectares of protected areas that is home to thousands of birds, impalas, giraffes, wildebeest, buffalos, antelopes, hyenas, crocodiles, fish and zebras.Protecting the rhino is vital in South Africa, where 1,215 rhinos were killed in 2014 alone. This is an increase of over 12,000 per cent since 2004 and symptomatic of a devastating epidemic that has pushed the rhino closer to the edge of extinction, according to UNEP.Mr. Steiner noted that while their work contributes mostly toward ecosystem preservation and halting biodiversity loss, Goal 15 of the Sustainable Development Goals, it also exemplifies the action-driven solutions needed to achieve all of the SDGs, which world leaders will adopt later this month.“With every rhino saved, the Black Mambas demonstrate that action on a local level is critical to achieving global sustainability and equity,” he stated.Leitah Mkhabela, a member of the Black Mamba rangers, said: “I am not afraid, I know what I am doing and I know why I am doing it. If you see the poachers you tell them not to try, tell them we are here and it is they who are in danger.“Animals deserve to live; they have a right to live. Do your part. When demand ends, the killing will end. Say yes to life. Say no to illegal rhino horn and elephant ivory.”To date, the Champions of the Earth Awards have recognized 67 laureates in the categories of policy, science, business and civil society.This year, the award year aims to support the Sustainable Development Goals by illustrating, through the examples of the laureates, that the transition to low-carbon, resource-efficient, inclusive and sustainable economic models is not just possible, but already in progress.The other winners for this year will be announced in the coming weeks and will receive their honours at a ceremony to be held at the close of the Sustainable Development Summit on 27 September in New York. read more

INTERVIEW Days of silence on sexual exploitation and abuse are over says

Parfait Onanga-Anyanga was appointed head of the UN Mission in the CAR (MINUSCA) last August after his predecessor resigned amid allegations of sexual exploitation and abuse against peacekeepers under his command. In 2015, 22 of the 69 cases against peacekeepers serving under the UN flag took place in the CAR, and fresh allegations have surfaced in 2016. While the Organization is taking new measures to protect from these crimes, including through a recent Security Council resolution, Mr. Onanga-Anyanga told the UN News Centre that “this is appalling,” and it is unacceptable “that anyone working under the blue flag could be seen not as a protector but as a predator.”Meanwhile, on 4 March, the United Nations welcomed the final results of the second round of the presidential elections in the CAR, congratulating President-elect Faustin-Archange Touadéra.“The election of this new President gives new hope that maybe everything [the United Nations has] done so far is going in the right direction,” Mr. Onanga-Anyanga underlined, noting that the Organization’s most significant challenge in the country is to protect civilian populations and ensure that an inclusive political process can pave the way towards lasting stability.“[We need] to ensure that anything that we do will be […] really helping this country to leapfrog from the chaos and horrors of the past to a new situation whereby there will be more unity, more reconciliation and more eagerness from all parts to build a better future for the Central Africans,” he stressed. UN Special Representative Parfait Onanga-Anyanga discusses the UN’s new policy on allegations of sexual abuse and outlines the challenges ahead for CAR’s new president-elect Faustin Archange Touadera. Credit: United NationsMore than three years of civil war and sectarian violence have displaced thousands of people in the CAR amid continuing clashes between the mainly Muslim Séléka rebel coalition and anti-Balaka militia, which are mostly Christian. The UN recently reported an upsurge in violence, in particular last September and October, committed by armed elements.Asked what keeps him going every day to achieve MINUSCA’s mandate, Mr. Onanga-Anyanga said it is the Central Africans themselves: “It is just amazing. They have told us, they have told their own leaders that they are tired of fighting each other. They want a new era where transition will be done through the ballot box and not the bullet. And this is what gives me hope and I believe together we will succeed.” read more

Buckeye Brief Dissecting Ohio States passing game struggles in 3116 loss to

No. 2 Ohio State (1-1) dropped the first game of its season Saturday, losing in convincing fashion to No. 5 Oklahoma (2-0) as the Sooners rolled to a 31-16 victory. Here are our takeaways to help explain the Buckeyes’ anemic passing game.What went wrong through the air?In the first half, redshirt senior quarterback J.T. Barrett had just 25 passing yards. Things didn’t get much better. The first three-time team captain in team history completed 19-of-35 passes for 183 yards, was sacked three times and threw an interception at one of the most inopportune times possible. Nothing went right for Barrett and the offense which gained 350 yards, 140 less than their opponent.“Offense was bad,” Meyer said. “So we’re going to do what we do and that’s go back to work as hard as we possibly can, starting somewhat tonight and tomorrow and figure this thing out.”After Saturday night’s game, the outlook on the passing game seems as bleak as it has been since Barrett was named starter in 2014.Last week, some things seemed to be improved from an offense that sputtered at the end of the 2016 season. Barrett earned Big Ten co-Offensive Player of the Week as he finished 20-for-35 for 304 yards, including three touchdowns. Though he didn’t connect on any deep balls, he hit two pass plays for more than 50 yards. This week, he didn’t complete a pass more than 31 yards. Wideout Terry McLaurin had a ball drop through his outstretched hands in the end zone in the first half, which would have been the longest pass of the game.Junior wide receiver Terry McLaurin (83) attempts to catch a pass during the Ohio State- Oklahoma game on Sep. 9. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorThings went from bad to worse early in the fourth quarter when Barrett followed up an Oklahoma touchdown by throwing an interception on the first play of Ohio State’s drive, giving the Sooners great field position.“We were challenged first half against Indiana, didn’t play very well and played very well in the second half,” Meyer said. “This game we didn’t play very well. So we’ll go back at it and it’s a long, long season.”After the game, Barrett said the offense isn’t broken and has never been broken. He admitted he and the team played poorly, but said he understands the season has just begun and the team will be able to grow.“We’ve worked extremely hard at [the passing game],”Meyer said. “It wasn’t good tonight. We’ve got to get the damn thing fixed, and we will.”No QB changeDespite Barrett’s shaky play and questions as to whether he should be the leader of the offense, Meyer shut down any uncertainty as to whether he would be making a quarterback change with just one word: “No.”The head coach didn’t even allow the question to be finished before his emphatic answer. “I think he’s confident in me,” Barrett said when asked about his coach’s faith in him. “I understand that I’ve been here before. Back in 2014, lost to Virginia Tech and I was 9-of-28. So, I’ve been here before. I didn’t play that bad, but I definitely didn’t play as far as putting us in the best situation to win.”Meyer and his quarterback each mentioned that when a team loses, the quarterback gets overly blamed and when it wins, the signal-caller gets too much praise. Meyer wanted to equally distribute the criticism across the offense, mentioning that he needs to rewatch the film to fully critique specific players.“I’m going to make it perfectly clear, there’s not a bullseye on J.T. Barrett. It’s part of the system and a group that have to get better,” Meyer said.No “flow” in the offenseAfter Ohio State’s loss to Oklahoma, Meyer didn’t have the answers to many questions asked at his postgame press conference. Junior H-back Parris Campbell attempts to catch a pass during the Ohio State- Oklahoma game on Sep. 9. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorHe said he had to re-watch the game. However, one thing was clear to the head coach: The offensive rhythm did not exist Saturday and has not for many games dating back to last season.“We gotta go beat Army is what we have to do and get on a roll,” Meyer. “That’s what we have to do. You’ve seen a roll around here a few times. So that’s what has to happen.”Meyer reiterated himself, saying the offense needs to find a flow. The offense used six plays or less on five of 11 drives. Ohio State managed drives of more than 45 yards just twice while Oklahoma drove that distance six times Saturday.Co-offensive coordinators Kevin Wilson and Ryan Day were hired in January to rework an offense that began to get stale in the latter portion of last season. Not only has the offense struggled through two games, there are no notable changes that have made large impacts on the offense. Without long, extended drives, Ohio State’s discombobulated, Barrett-led offense needed to hit big plays for large chunks of yardage. But lacking a threatening deep ball, it seems unlikely that the offense will be able to rely on big plays to jump-start itself.Still no go-to threatsH-back Parris Campbell and wide receiver Johnnie Dixon each broke plays that gained more than 50 yards against Indiana. But both receivers were non-factors against the Sooners. Campbell caught three passes for 27 yards, and Johnnie Dixon caught a single pass, on the Buckeyes’ final drive, for 12 yards.Unlike in Week 1, not a single Ohio State receiver even scored a touchdown. The biggest play of the game was made by wideout Austin Mack, who snagged a 31-yard pass to put his team on the 7-yard line.Sophomore wide receiver Austin Mack (11) catches a pass during the Ohio State- Oklahoma game on Sep. 9. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorBut the Buckeyes settled for a field goal, and the sophomore exited the game with an apparent injury. In fact, this was his only catch of the game and he led Ohio State in receiving yards until H-back K.J. Hill caught a 17-yard pass on the game’s final play.Hill led Ohio State with five catches for 44 yards. But he was anything but the security blanket Barrett needed. Especially near the goal line, the Buckeyes struggled to finish drives off with touchdowns. Ohio State scored on all four red zone opportunities, but settled for field goals on three occasions. Facing zone in practice a negative factor?Though the cornerbacks have struggled in the first two games of the season, cornerbacks coach Kerry Coombs and his unit are known for staunch, man-to-man coverage. That has led to multiple cornerbacks — including Marshon Lattimore and Gareon Conley last year — being drafted in the first round of the NFL draft.After Saturday’s game, Barrett referenced the zone coverage looks he and the offense were matched up against on multiple occasions. He mentioned that the looks the Buckeyes’ defense has given him in practice might not prepare him well for different types of defenses.“When we’re talking about it in the preseason, going against our defense is a lot more man coverage,” Barrett said. “We don’t see a lot of spot coverage going against our defense.”Given the lack of experience preparing against zone coverage, Barrett said he needs to learn to trust his pass-catchers more when facing that style of defense. After the game, the quarterback said he was late releasing the ball because he doesn’t have the complete trust he needs — yet. Senior quarterback J.T.

Cyprus talks collapse

first_imgThe best chance to end Cyprus’ 40-year division disappeared in the Swiss Alps last week, as the long drawn-out talks at Crans-Montana ended acrimoniously. So ends a process that many Cypriots – from both sides of the divide – saw as the most promising for generations to heal decades of conflict. It was left to a despondent UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to break the bitter news, saying that the conference had ended on 7 July “without the possibility to bring a solution to this dramatic and long-lasting problem.” “Cyprus divided forever is a betrayal of our forebears… We will… be grieving for the loss of another chance for our dream and our parents’ dream of one Cyprus being realised.The tragic irony is that reunification talks came closer to success in recent weeks than ever before, but disagreement over two issues: power-sharing arrangements in a unified government; and security guarantees for the Turkish Cypriot community, ensured no deal could be reached. Throughout the talks a major sticking point was always whether the tens of thousands of Turkish troops currently deployed on the island would remain after reunification. According to Turkish Cypriot negotiators, proposals were offered that included a significant reduction in the number of troops in the north, but the offer was rejected. From the Republic of Cyprus’ position, calls for all Turkish troops to be removed, and the deployment of a multinational police force to monitor the agreement, fell on deaf ears. It is, of course, not the first time efforts at reunification have faltered over the issue of troops. Greek Cypriot leaders see a total withdrawal (of what is still considered an illegal occupying force) as vital, while Turkish Cypriots fear ethnic violence in the event of an exit by Turkish forces.The issue of ‘security guarantees’, and the two sides’ inability to compromise on this matter is the other half of the stalemate. For Nicosia, security guarantees that would have allowed outside powers (including Turkey) to intervene if one side felt the reunification agreement had been violated were a non-starter. One Cyprus diplomat said that such an arrangement would be “anachronistic relics of a colonial system.”As the recriminations began, in Australia, Cypriot diaspora commentators grieved a lost opportunity and called for renewed efforts to bridge the divide. Former Victorian state minister Theo Theophanous told Neos Kosmos: “The failure of the talks is a failure for the Cypriot people – Greek and Turkish, as well as the many minorities living on the island.” Mr Theophanous said that while each side would blame the other, “We who so clearly see that Cyprus divided forever is a betrayal of our forebears, will not be listening to these justifications, mostly mouthed for short-term political gain. We will instead be grieving for the loss of another chance for our dream and our parents’ dream of one Cyprus being realised”. Dr Michalis Michael, writer on Cyprus affairs and director of the Centre for Dialogue in Melbourne said: “The key lesson to emerge is that security – in all its manifestations, for both sides – is the obstacle. While there is much criticism to be levelled – including at the UN – the question is ‘what lessons can be learned to inform future efforts?’ One thing is certain: the current process, by itself, is inadequate in solving the Cyprus problem.”Dr Michael added: “There is always the danger that given gas exploration in Cyprus, the political situation in Turkey, and the heightening of ‘patriotic rhetoric’ during the impending presidential campaign in the Republic of Cyprus, that we can revert to a situation of tension and rigidity.”In the wake of the talks’ breakdown, the key question is now Turkey’s reaction. The biggest loser economically in partitioned Cyprus is the Turkish Cypriot community, and the self-declared ‘Republic of Northern Cyprus’ chances of achieving international recognition are as distant as they have ever been. Analysts suggest an attempt at annexation by Turkey is unlikely, but the Erdogan regime will be intent on re-exerting its influence; already Turkish president Erdogan has spoken of a ‘Plan B’ and a ‘Plan C’. Erdogan’s comments after the G20 summit this week, warning off French energy company Total from assisting Cyprus in exploring for offshore gas, heralds the start. Turkey claims the island’s natural resources belong to both Greek and Turkish Cypriots.Diplomats have already spoken about restarting talks after both sides have reflected on their differences. But any new initiative is years away. After the last best chance – before Cyprus joined the European Union (the plan brokered in 2004 by Kofi Anan and rejected by referendum in the Republic) – more than a decade passed before serious talks resumed.

Iress launches paid leave entitlement for parents of children starting primary school

first_imgGlobal software organisation Iress has launched a new fully paid starting school leave entitlement for its 1,800 global employees, to enable working parents to better support children starting primary school.The new leave entitlement, which was implemented in September 2018 across all global operating sites, will allow all parents at the organisation who have a child starting primary school to take up to eight and a half additional days off work at full pay during their child’s first school term.Julia McNeill (pictured), group executive of people at Iress, said: “We want to ensure Iress is an inclusive workplace where people feel supported to be their best both at work and at home. Children starting primary school is an important milestone for any family and we wanted to make the transition easier for the parents that work at Iress. As far as we’re aware, we’re the only [organisation] offering such a generous amount of leave at full pay to help parents out at this crucial time.”The benefit was originally proposed in 2017, but this iteration had less flexibility around how and when employees could take the starting school leave. At its launch this month, the family-friendly leave will now enable working parents to take the extra days off work as and when they need to, within their child’s first term at primary school.The starting school leave entitlement was launched to employees via a global internal email announcement, and communicated to staff at an all-employee quarterly briefing session.This will form part of Iress’ existing family-friendly benefits portfolio, which includes enhanced paid parental leave for up to 26 weeks for primary carers and up to six weeks for secondary carers, with the first four weeks of both arrangements taken at full pay. Employees are also able to utilise a flexible return-to-work option, which allows them to work part-time for the first four weeks back at work after having a child, while still receiving their full-time wage.In the UK, Iress has just under 650 employees across office sites in Cheltenham, Leatherhead, London and Warwick.McNeill added: “Our regular employee engagement shows that family-friendly benefits are amongst the most highly valued by our people and so we wanted to provide remarkable benefits that would truly make a difference to people’s daily lives.”last_img read more

Short of money to fund your Christmas vacation Here are 5 options

first_imgA giant Christmas tree stands in front Notre Dame Cathedral as the French capital prepares for the holiday season in ParisReutersChristmas carols are already in the air. It is that fag end but the much awaited time of the year when you plan a vacation or family outings. While it always helps to have a long-term holiday fund, there can always be a scenario when one isn’t prepared to deal with slightly unpredictable vacation expenses. But nothing to worry, you can still have a Christmas-New Year blast!In this article, we take a look at 5 options that can help you in arranging funds to have a joyful Christmas vacation.Personal LoanIf your income is good, then fetching a Personal Loan would not be difficult as banks don’t ask for collateral/guarantee or the reason for borrowing. It usually takes just 3-4 days for a loan to get sanctioned. Banks/NBFCs charge interest around 14-21% a year as this is an unsecured loan and you could struggle with repayments. The processing fees are normally about 2-2.25% of the loan amount sanctioned.Travel Loan Banks offer Travel Loans at an interest of around 12-20% a year for airfare, hotels, travel insurance and holiday packages. What’s good about travel loans is they are both secured/unsecured. For amounts above Rs 2 lakhs banks ask for collateral, but as this is a secured loan interest rate is lower than personal loans.Understand terms and conditions before taking a travel loan:Travel loan EMIs must not be more than 40% of monthly take-home salaryTravel loans must be repaid within a couple of yearsIf salaried, you need to be between 21-58 years of age; employed with a reputed company and working for at least 2 years in that company. If self-employed, banks would check the business record.Banks also check identity/address proof, three month’s salary slip; you should have filed ITR for at least 2 years. For businessmen, banks check business ownership documents.Loan Against SecuritiesAnother way through which you can fund your Christmas vacation is Loan Against Securities, mainly loan against shares. Banks have a list of approved shares against which they lend.Banks could lend up to 50% of the value of shares. They create a lien against these shares and you cannot sell them.Banks open a current account with an overdraft facility and set the borrowing limit based on the value of shares. You withdraw the money from this account through an ATM or internet banking facility and repay by depositing money back into the current account. This is much easier than an EMI-based loan.Borrow With A Credit CardCredit Cards remove the burden of carrying cash on vacations. You could use a credit card for travelling and shopping. Credit cards come with interest rates of around 2-3% a month, which kick in if you don’t pay the amounts due in time.You could try using a co-branded credit card. These cards are jointly issued by banks and service providers (airlines/hotel). These credit cards are just like normal credit cards, but offer special benefits provided by the service provider.Use credit cards associated with hotels, cabs, airlines and railways. You could get free flight ticket vouchers/air travel insurance if you book through associated airlines. Associated hotels offer free stay or room upgrades at partner hotels.Borrow From Relatives And FriendsThis should be your last resort in case you are not successful in fetching a loan for yourself. Loans from friends and relatives are usually interest-free and if you can make the repayments in time, then do go for it.Insist that your friend/relative accepts a promissory note. This is an unconditional promise that you will pay a fixed amount on demand or by a specified date and sign it.(The author is the CEO of BankBazaar.

An additional benefit is the ability for patients to view a 3-D image that illustrates their condition or injury to help them understand the reason for a treatment or surgical procedure.This system is not available for commercial sale in Canada.For more information: www.carestream.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Videos | CT Angiography (CTA) | August 07, 2019 VIDEO: Walk Around of a Siemens Go.Top Dedicated Cardiac Scanner This is a quick walk around of the new Siemens Somatom Go.top cardiovascular edition compact computed tomography (CT) read more Video Player is loading.Arthur Agatston explains the history of CT calcium scoring Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 9:54Loaded: 1.67%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -9:54 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.
