Winfrey announces end of ‘Oprah’

Sunday, November 22, 2009

Twenty-five years feels right in my bones and feels right in my spirit

Oprah Winfrey has announced that she will retire from her talk show on September 9, 2011, during season 25. Winfrey made the announcement on Friday’s broadcast of The Oprah Winfrey Show. Suppressing tears, she explained that careful thought and prayer had gone into her decision. “Twenty-five years feels right in my bones and feels right in my spirit”, she told her audience.

The Oprah Winfrey Show was first televised on September 8, 1986. For the first ten years she competed with other talk shows by discussing relationships and parallel subjects. In the late 1990s her show changed focus to incorporate stories relating to spirituality and human interest.

Winfrey has had lasting effects on the city of Chicago, Illinois. The surrounding neighborhood of Harpo Productions was rundown prior to the company’s success. Chicago residents have expressed concern over what would occur if Winfrey were to leave. According to the Associated Press, citizens view The Oprah Winfrey Show as, “a reminder of what has been, and what could be lost.”

News sources speculate that Winfrey will air a replacement on the Oprah Winfrey Network in 2011.

Cash advance lenders request the borrower to fill a simple online form to gather a few personal details with reference to the borrower like name, address, phone number, bank account number, employment and so on. Lenders often look for an active checking account just about three months old for the reason that lenders deposit the cash by means of electronic transfer into the borrowers account subsequent to the processing. Then again, cash is electronically pulled back into the account of lenders the moment the paycheck is credited into the borrower’s account. Cash advance loans are unsecured payday loans hence, lenders request the borrower to provide with employment details to make out if borrower has the capacity repay the loan amount or not. The loan amount that is lent to any borrower relies on ability of the borrower to pay it back.

Lenders do not carry out credit checks for borrower’s credit record this as well save time and cash advance loans are provided faster than other type of loans. Borrower is required to be of 18 years or more of age and should have a stable job with steady income to meet the criteria for cash advance loans. Take care that the lender you apply with is not sham, therefore you must ask other borrowers who have taken services from the said lender. That apart, still if you do need cash as quickly as possible, submit an online application for cash advance loans and get relieved within hours.

Thousands take part in protests across US against government’s financial policy

Sunday, March 1, 2009

Last Friday, thousands of people, in a total of more than thirty US cities, took part in a protest against the economic policy of the US government.

The event, which was inspired by the Boston Tea Party, took place due to comments made by CNBC presenter Rick Santelli.

“This is America! How many of you people want to pay for your neighbors’ mortgages, that has an extra bathroom and can’t pay their bills?” said Santelli, speaking on-air to the television audience. “We’re thinking about having a Chicago tea party in July. All you capitalists that wanna show up at Lake Michigan, I’m gonna start organizing.”

The protest took place in anger against the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). Several protesters voiced their opposition to this act. “I’m sick and tired of it,” said protester Barbara Keeton, speaking to “That’s my money. That’s my grandchildren’s future. It’s down the toilet.”

“The debt that Obama’s got, is way higher now, less than 100 days after he’s been in office,” she continued.

Organizers of Friday’s protests have announced that they are planning a new series of protests on April 15.

Icelandic Internet bank suspends UK accounts

Tuesday, October 7, 2008

The Icelandic internet bank, Icesave, has suspended all 300,000 of its UK customer accounts, leaving account holders in the United Kingdom unable to withdraw or deposit any funds. A message on its website posted this morning states:

“We are not currently processing any deposits or any withdrawal requests through our Icesave internet accounts. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause our customers. We hope to provide you with more information shortly.”

The internet bank, owned by the Icelandic bank, Landsbanki (Landsbankinn), which was recently nationalised in an attempt to rescue it, has been hit by the global financial crisis. Reports from the United Kingdom suggest that the traders and city are preparing for the parent company to be declared insolvent, leaving customers to recover their monies through a financial compensation scheme being backed by the Icelandic Government. The plan will cover the first € 20,887 (Approx £16,300 / $28,720), the remainder of the customers funds being recovered through the UK’s own financial compensation system.

Following the decision to nationalise Landsbanki, the Icelandic Prime Minister, Geir Haarde, who introduced and signed the emergency legislation into law, stated:

“What we are doing here is saving a banking system – saving the domestic banking system – and making sure that it can function properly. And I think, also, through our declaration on domestic deposits in these banks and saving institutions, we have been able to avoid a run on the banks here, and therefore prevent it.”

In describing and explaining its actions in nationalising the bank, the Icelandic Financial Supervisory Authority issued this brief statement:

“Based on new legislation, the Icelandic Financial Supervisory Authority (IFSA) proceeds to take control of Landsbanki to ensure continued commercial bank operations in Iceland. Domestic deposits are fully guaranteed, as declared by the government. Landsbanki’s domestic branches, call centres, cash machines and internet operations will be open for business as usual.”

In response to the deepening world financial situation, the Dutch government has this afternoon increased its savers protection from €38,000 to €80,000 effective immediately, to help secure the financial status of its savers within Holland. Icesave also has a Dutch branch, – their website was unreachable at the time of this article.

Commonwealth Bank of Australia CEO apologies for financial planning scandal

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.

US stock markets reach 12-year lows

Thursday, March 5, 2009 

US stock markets dropped to twelve-year lows on Thursday, amidst falling confidence in the financial sector and worries over whether the US automobile manufacturer General Motors will be able to keep operating.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped by 4.08%, or 280.52 points, at the closing bell, reaching a level of 6595.32, a new 12-year low. The Nasdaq Composite lost 54.15 points, or 4%, to 1299.59, while the Standard & Poor’s 500 plunged by 30.27 points, or 4.25%, closing at 682.60.

Every stock in the Dow Jones, other than Wal-Mart, either lost ground or remained even, and all stocks in the S&P 500 index lost ground.

General Motors’ shares lost 15.5% after the auto firm announced that its auditors had “substantial doubt” over whether it would be able to keep operating.

Shares of financial companies were lower by nine percent, with Bank of America losing 11.7% and Citigroup falling by 9.7%.

“What’s most worrisome is that we haven’t hit the crescendo yet,” said Bill Groeneveld, the head trader for vFinance Investments. “Asset-management divisions are getting calls to just liquidate everything, and we haven’t seen the big players come back in at all.”

“This is one of the worst bear markets in the last 100 years; it started out with the credit crisis and the subprime [loans], but it is like a forest fire that has raced across the clearing and ignited other parts: Autos, auto parts, the insurance companies have been hit very hard. The credit crisis is causing an unraveling of industry after industry because the banks don’t lend,” said David Dreman, the chief investment officer of Dreman Value Management.

European markets were also lower today, with the London’s FTSE index losing 3.2% and the DAX index of Germany falling by five percent.
