The families of the victims have fought for 27 years for justice after the police, politicians and media conspired to cover up the cause of the tragedy and deflect blame onto the fans.Today’s verdicts say that the fans were not responsible for the disaster. Instead, it says that there were failings by the police and ambulance service, by Sheffield Wednesday, the owners of the Hillsborough Ground, and by the Football Association and the ground’s engineers.The inquests – the longest in British legal history – heard that there were two other crushing incidents in the years leading up to the Hillsborough disaster and that the ground did not have a safety certificate.“We have waited a long time for these determinations, and today was bound to be a difficult day,” the current Bishop of Liverpool, Paul Bayes, said. “It brings raw emotions and painful memories to the surface once again, for the families and for our city region.“But there is also real comfort today, because the accusations at the time that Liverpool’s fans contributed to this tragedy have finally been proven to be false.“The steady journey continues. The families have always said that they seek truth and justice, and the inquests have worked longer than any in British legal history to uncover the truth. Now justice must follow.”Bishop Bayes continued: “I pay tribute to those whose courage and tenacity has never wavered over the years. In particular, I honour my predecessor Bishop James Jones and the work he did with the Independent Panel which did so much to get us to this point.“Now we move forward once again on this long journey to justice. Together with my colleagues from all the churches, I commit myself to support those who hurt, help those who grieve and show God’s love and compassion for all.“As we take in this week’s news and consider our reactions, let us not lose sight of what is most important. At the heart of this story are the 96 people who lost their lives and countless more who have had their lives and their hearts broken.“We honour the families and those who have supported them over the years. We honour those who have stood for truth and justice. Ours is a story of loss, grief and pain. This story continues because that pain continues, but we will walk forward with hope in our hearts. And as Christians we believe that the God of all love and strength will walk alongside us into the future.”Last week, in a statement to mark the 27th anniversary of the disaster, Bishop Bayes said: Like anyone else who lives their life in this city and region, I have grown to understand the impact of the Hillsborough tragedy on us all, and the importance of keeping its memory alive. We remember the 96 with pride, and we honour their memory by seeking justice.“I am proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with my colleagues from denominations and faiths as we mark the anniversary this year, and as we await the outcomes of the inquiry. I am particularly honoured to stand with my predecessor Bishop James Jones, who as chair of the Independent Panel did so much to open the doors to the justice and truth we seek.“I continue to pray for God’s comfort and healing to touch the families and all those affected in our wider community.” Submit an Event Listing Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Featured Events Liverpool Bishop : Hillsborough is a story of ‘loss, grief and pain’ Rector Collierville, TN Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Albany, NY Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

VP nominee Pence: Trump’s far-right puppet

first_imgDuring his pursuit of the Republican nomination, Donald Trump denounced the Koch brothers, the far-right capitalist moguls whom he accused of pulling his rivals’ strings. But, no surprise, he totally reversed himself on July 15 by choosing a Koch brothers’ puppet for his vice presidential running mate.Gov. Mike Pence of Indiana has a longtime relationship with the reactionary multibillionaire Kochs, who head a vast energy empire that is the second-largest privately owned company in the U.S., with revenues of $115 billion in 2013. These libertarians oppose “big government,” except for laws that protect and promote their enormous stolen wealth (obviously, they deny climate change) and that restrict progressive legislation.By choosing Pence, Trump exposes his willingness to cozy up to the Kochs. Who knows, he might need their vast resources to try to buy the election. Even though they have opposed Trump up to this point, they may now support him — to leverage control over Pence and, ultimately, over Trump.Clearly, Trump chose Pence to shore up his conservative, evangelical credentials. Pence, whom the July 17 New York Times called “a loony lightweight” during his 12 years in Congress, is one of the most conservative, ostentatiously religious U.S. politicians. None of the 90 House bills he proposed has passed.Both the AFL-CIO and the Working Families Party describe him as an enemy of working people. He voted against raising the minimum wage, expanding health coverage for poor kids, increasing funding for subsidized housing and prohibiting job discrimination against LGBTQ people. He supported deporting undocumented children and eliminating automatic citizenship for children born in the U.S. to undocumented parents. His vote to build a fence at the Mexican border is one of the few positions he shares, besides racism, with Trump!His actions restricting women’s and LGBTQ rights show what a misogynist bigot he is. Pence signed laws in Indiana forcing women to undergo unnecessary ultrasounds, banning abortion coverage in private insurance plans and restricting abortion based on laws the Supreme Court recently struck down. In March, he signed a law preventing women from obtaining an abortion because of the race, gender or disability of the fetus, and making doctors liable for performing such abortions — one of the most far-reaching bans in the country. A judge blocked it from taking effect after the court decision.In 2011, Pence pushed an amendment through the House to defund Planned Parenthood, kick-starting similar state actions. After Pence became governor in 2012, Indiana cut Planned Parenthood funding in half from 2005 levels, forcing the health care group to close five clinics providing testing for sexually transmitted diseases, though not providing abortions. Soon, a county with one of the closed clinics became the hub of an enormous HIV outbreak.Not only has Pence been hostile to same-sex marriage since 2003, but in Congress he voted against laws prosecuting hate crimes based on sexual orientation, as well as against the repeal of the Pentagon’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy. In March 2015, Pence signed a so-called “religious freedom” bill permitting business owners to refuse service to LGBTQ customers and others due to their religious beliefs. It was only after a national protest from business and civic leaders, athletes and celebrities that Pence relented, essentially killing the bill.No wonder the National Organization of Women calls him “a ruthless general in the war on women.” Mike Pence’s many crimes against working and oppressed people make him Trump’s perfect running mate.Sources: July 14 articles in Mother Jones and The Nation and a July 16 NOW press release supplied background for this article.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

TCU to keep its contract with CSC crowd management company

first_imgTCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks printTCU fans stormed the field after the Frogs’ 28-21 win against Baylor, celebrating on the playing surface without incident.One week later, University of Houston fans stormed the field after the Cougars won the American Athletic Conference title, but the celebration wasn’t as painless.When fans stormed the field in Houston, Contemporary Services Corporation (CSC) employees confronted students who were trying to get on the field. Several students were tackled by the CSC employees. In turn, the University of Houston has terminated its contract with the company.Like Houston previously did, the Frogs use CSC at their athletic events. However, officials at TCU however don’t see an incident like the one at the University of Houston happening on campus, said Ross Bailey, TCU’s associate director of athletics for operations.The Big 12 conference, unlike others such as the SEC, does not have any policies against fans storming the field. Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby said at Big 12 Football Media Days in July that the conference is working to “manage it rather than prohibit it.”Fans have stormed the field at Amon G. Carter Stadium without incident three times over the last two seasons.Bailey said the TCU Athletics staff is confident and comfortable in the CSC staff and what they are doing.“To the best of my ability, it won’t happen here,” Bailey said.He said he reviewed the policies and procedures with CSC after the incident occurred.“We talked about an hour or two after it hit the Internet,” Bailey said.Although he would not disclose the nature of their conversation, Bailey said there was never a point where TCU thought of canceling the contract.“TCU has an extensive multi-year contract that provides help with game day operations,” said Bailey.A copy of the contract was unable to be provided.“The university doesn’t do that stuff typically,” Bailey said.CSC corporate and CSC Dallas/Fort Worth were unwilling to discuss the situation or their relationship with TCU.

BNY Mellon Posts Positive Financial Results in Q3 Despite RMBS Litigation Difficulties

first_img Bank of New York Mellon Earnings Statements Profits Residential Mortgage-backed securities 2015-10-20 Brian Honea Tagged with: Bank of New York Mellon Earnings Statements Profits Residential Mortgage-backed securities Home / Daily Dose / BNY Mellon Posts Positive Financial Results in Q3 Despite RMBS Litigation Difficulties The Bank of New York Mellon Corporation reported a net income of $820 million for the third quarter of 2015, an increase of 16 percent year-over-year on an adjusted basis, according to the bank’s Q3 2015 earnings statement released on Tuesday.The increase in net income during Q3 made it a positive quarter for the bank despite a lawsuit filed by the FDIC in August accusing the bank of breaching its duties as a bond trustee for $2 billion in residential mortgage-backed securities and despite having their own lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase over toxic RMBS dismissed.BNY Mellon’s net income for Q3 last year was $734 million, adjusted for the gains of sales on the bank’s investment of Wing Hang Bank Limited and the One Wall Street Building, net of litigation and restructuring charges. Though the bank’s net income was up year-over-year in Q3 2015, it dropped slightly from Q2’s adjusted net income of $868 million.“Our third quarter results reflect our focus on delivering significant value to our shareholders in all market environments,” said Gerald L. Hassell, chairman and CEO of BNY Mellon. “We are executing on our strategic priorities, which helped us to generate more than 370 basis points of positive operating leverage year-over-year and to remain on track to achieve the three-year targets we shared on Investor Day a year ago. We are enhancing our risk management and regulatory compliance practices, investing in technology platforms for the future and have onboarded employees associated with two strategic relationships while simultaneously controlling expenses.”“Our third quarter results reflect our focus on delivering significant value to our shareholders in all market environments.”—Gerald HassellThe bank’s total revenue of $3.8 billion for Q3 was an increase of 1 percent year-over-year on an adjusted basis. Nonperforming residential mortgage loans declined for BNY Mellon in Q3 2015 to $103 million, down from $110 million in Q2 2015 and from $113 million in Q3 2014. The bank returned more than $875 million to shareholders in the form of share repurchases and dividends, according to the announcement.BNY Mellon had a tough quarter in the area of RMBS litigation during Q3. The FDIC sued BNY Mellon in August, claiming the bank breached its duties as bond trustee for $2.06 billion worth of residential mortgage-backed securities purchased by an FDIC-insured bank in Texas which later failed. In September, a New York Supreme Court judge dismissed a $600 million suit filed by BNY Mellon against JPMorgan Chase and a unit of General Electric Capital over $1.275 billion worth of toxic residential mortgage-backed securities. In that suit, BNY Mellon accused JPMorgan of misrepresenting the quality of loans packaged in an RMBS trust for which BNY acted as securities administrator; the judge ruled that the case was time-barred.

Coast Guardsman kills wife, son before taking own life in Miami: Officials

first_imgkali9/iStock(MIAMI) — An 8-year-old girl is fighting for her life after her father allegedly shot her and killed her mother, her little brother and himself at their Miami home, police said.Petty Officer 1st Class John Presnar, 44, allegedly opened fire on his family after getting into an argument with his 39-year-old wife early Sunday, according to the Miami-Dade Police Department.Presnar’s mother-in-law witnessed part of the incident before running out of the house to seek help when Presnar pulled a gun, police said.“According to investigators, [Presnar] and his wife were involved in a domestic dispute that escalated into a shooting,” police said in a statement. “When [Presnar] started shooting, his wife told her mother to run out of the house and call for help.”The shooting happened about 12:41 a.m. Sunday at the family’s home in Miami, police said.After killing his wife, Gretchen Presner, the Coast Guardsman allegedly shot his 7-year-old son to death, police said.When officers arrived at the home, they found Presnar’s 8-year-old daughter suffering from a gunshot wound but still alive, officials said.The girl was taken by helicopter to Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, where she was in critical condition, police said.Police did not immediately say what the couple was arguing about.John Presnar joined the Coast Guard in 2001 and served as an electronics technician, Lt. Cmdr. Ryan Kelly told ABC affiliate station WPLG-TV in Miami.“The Coast Guard is deeply saddened by this tragedy and our hearts go out to the family members of those who where killed,” Kelly said. “We continue to pray and offer the full support of the Coast Guard to the young child fighting for her life.” Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
