BNP owns 5.2 per cent of AXA, Reuters data showed.Overall 2010 results for BNP saw revenues and profits rise on the back of the bank’s strong retail bank and integration of Belgium-focused crisis acquisition Fortis. The group raised its Fortis synergy target to 1.2bn euros, from 900mFor 2011, BNP expects a “slight decline” in loan-loss provisions in key Europe markets like France, Belgium and Italy as the risk environment improves, Chief Executive Baudouin Prot told Reuters television, adding acquisitions were not a focus.“I’ll be very blunt; at the moment, we are not very acquisitive,” Baudouin Prot said in an interview. “This year we will concentrate on organic growth.”BNP reported fourth-quarter net income of 1.55 billion euros, up 13.6 per cent. Consensus forecasts had been expecting 1.73 billion, according to a Reuters poll of 11 analysts.Group revenues rose 2.6 percent in the quarter, to 10.3 billion euros, missing forecasts of 10.5 billion.Shares of BNP hit an 11-month high on Wednesday after smaller rival Societe Generale (SOGN.PA) whipped up investor enthusiasm with its own results. SocGen met forecasts with a near-quadrupling of net profit.Like SocGen, BNP said it would raise its dividend, to 2.1 euros per share, from 1.5 euros in 2009.

I’m always thinking about rugby but it’s important to have something else to fall back on. In modern-day rugby, careers can end quickly.What are your bugbears? Loud eaters. There are a few here but I’m not going to call them out.If you could have one superpower, what would it be? The ability to fly. It would be amazing. You could get around so much quicker. I’d fly to New York – I love New York.Who would be your three dream dinner party guests? Cam Newton, a quarterback in American Football who is pretty cool. Rowan Atkinson – I love Mr Bean and all his characters. And Martin Luther King.On the ball: Carolina Panthers’ Cam Newton in NFL action. Photo: Getty ImagesDo you have any hidden talents? I’d back myself in table tennis. Matthew Syed (ex-table tennis pro) came to the club a couple of years ago and did a talk for us. A few of the lads had a go playing him but I hadn’t warmed up so didn’t want to show myself up! I really enjoyed his book, Bounce.Outside of rugby, what do you want to achieve? I want to finish my degree and to get a job from it. I don’t know in what field yet, but I don’t want to go into politics! TAGS: Northampton Saints Northampton Saint Harry Mallinder, who can play fly-half, centre and full-back, talks Disney films, degrees and dinner guests Who are the jokers in the Saints squad? George North always tries to scare you by hiding in cupboards. It’s always the older ones who are meant to be more sensible doing pranks, like Ben Foden. Kieran Brookes has a new one at the moment too. He pretends he’s carrying two cups full of hot coffee and then spills them over people. There’s nothing in them but people think there is and freak out.What about room-mates? Howard Packman has to watch a Disney film as he goes to bed every night!Have you had any sledging on the pitch? I get ‘Daddy’s boy’ all the time, without fail. I get it here (at Northampton) too, but it’s want I’m used to. It’s normality for me – he (Saints DoR Jim Mallinder) is my dad and my coach. Everyone always asks if we talk about selection in the car on the way home and I say, “No, because he goes home in his Audi and I go in my Fiesta.”Who would you like to be stuck in a lift with? Definitely not Jamie Gibson. He’d talk too much.Isn’t he quite clever? So he tells us! I’d like to be in there with someone interesting, like Barack Obama.Points to discuss: US president Barack Obama should have lots of stories to tell. Photo: Getty ImagesWhat are your nicknames? Harold, even though it’s not my name. And Giraffe. Apparently I look like a giraffe with my long neck and the way I run.What do you do outside rugby?I’m doing a business economics degree part-time through the Open University. It’s good to have something else to take your mind off rugby, especially last year, which was a bad year for me as I had a few injuries. You need something else to do. I’m interested in politics, too. Anything that’s a bit different. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Saint on the march: Harry Mallinder breaks the Wasps defensive line.

I didn’t even feel it.”The flu shot’s effectiveness last year was only 23 percent, but even at that low of a rate, nursing students still urge their fellow students to get the vaccine.“People definitely need to get vaccinated,” said Molly McMillin, a junior nursing student who helped at the event. “That way we can prevent the flu from spreading around more.”Gray said the vaccine would prevent students from missing out on valuable time.“Vaccines are one of our main sources of protection, and it keeps our student body healthy, so we can be going to football games and class, and hanging out with our friends,” Gray said. Grant McGalliardhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/grant-mcgalliard/ printhttps://vimeo.com/142643507The TCU Harris College of Nursing and Health Sciences held a free flu shot clinic in the University Recreation Center on Wednesday, Oct. 7, that gave a vaccination to approximately 3,500 people affiliated with TCU.Students, faculty, staff and alumni were all welcome to receive flu shots, which were administered by students in the Harris College.Nursing major Anneliese Niederhauser said the free clinic was a success.“It went great,” Niederhauser said. “We actually ran out of flu vaccines. I think we almost do every year. We got a lot of people vaccinated, so hopefully we beat the flu.”The clinic was scheduled to run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., but students received an email at 1 p.m. saying the number of available vaccines was dwindling, and at 2 p.m. the nurses ran out of shots.Students turned out in droves to receive the vaccine, and Twitter was filled with people sharing their experience and urging others to get the shot.[View the story “Tweeting Through the Flu Shot” on Storify] Twitter Grant McGalliard is a senior journalism and political science major from Bay City, Texas.

Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago HARP Refi Numbers Dwindling Despite FHFA’s Efforts Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The total number of loans refinanced through the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) to an unexpected turn downward in the third quarter.According to the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) third quarter Refinance Report, a total of 25,824 HARP refinances were completed between July and September, down from the 31,561 refinances completed from April to June. In addition, HARP volume accounted for 5 percent of total refinance volume in the third quarter.The FHFA reported that over 3.3 million borrowers have refinanced through the HARP program, which was enacted in 2009 to help homeowners that are not able to refinance due to falling home values.The Agency approximates that over 429,000 borrowers nationwide have a financial incentive to use the HARP program but still have not.HARP refinances were highest in Florida, California, Illinois, Michigan, and Georgia, the FHFA stated.The report showed that Florida, Ohio, Illinois, Michigan, and Georgia are the top five states with the most “in the money” borrowers that are able to use HARP. These borrowers could save an average of $200 per month on mortgage payments.FHFA deems borrowers to be “in the money” if they meet HARP eligibility requirements, have a mortgage balance of $50,000 or more, have a remaining mortgage of no more than ten years, and an interest rate at least 1.5 percent higher than current market rates.”FHFA is continuing its efforts to reach HARP-eligible borrowers and has held town-hall style events with local community leaders in Chicago, Atlanta, Detroit, Miami, Newark and Phoenix to get the word out about HARP,” the report stated.Those who refinance using HARP are typically have a lower delinquency rate compared to those who are eligible for the program but choose not to use it, the FHFA says.Of all HARP refinances for underwater borrowers (those with a loan-to-value ratio greater than 105 percent), 28 percent resulted in 15-and 20-year mortgages. The FHFA noted that this method helps build equity for borrowers quicker than 30-year mortgages.The FHFA cautioned potential refinancers that “HARP will sunset on December 31, 2016.”Click here to view the full report.

A Reuben Brothers venture that includes Fontainebleau Development recently bought out Fortress Investment Group’s stake in the loan backing One Thousand Museum. Fortress Investment Group initially provided a $225 million loan in 2016. It was eventually increased to $256 million, records show.One Thousand Museum’s developers were also seeking a $331 million condo inventory loan in 2019, ahead of the tower’s completion. Sales have picked up at the luxury condo tower in recent months. Records show four developer units have sold since January, including a $16 million penthouse.David and Victoria Beckham closed on a penthouse at One Thousand Museum last year for nearly $20 million.One Sotheby’s International Realty has been handling developer sales.Contact Katherine Kallergis Message* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Full Name* Simon and David Reuben with One Thousand Museum (Getty, iStock)One Thousand Museum, the luxury downtown Miami condo tower designed by the late Zaha Hadid, is facing a foreclosure lawsuit, The Real Deal has learned.Reuben Brothers, the London-based private equity and investment firm led by British billionaire brothers David and Simon Reuben, sued to foreclose on the remaining 15 unsold units at the skyscraper at 1000 Biscayne Boulevard, according to a filing obtained by TRD.The lender sued 1000 Biscayne Tower, 1000 Biscayne Mezz LLC, developer Gilberto Bomeny, Bank of the Ozarks, Plaza Construction and a number of subcontractors in Miami-Dade Circuit Court last week. The developers include Louis Birdman, Gregg Covin, Todd Michael Glaser, Kevin Venger and Bomeny.In a statement provided to TRD, the developers called the action “completely unexpected.”ADVERTISEMENTThe 84-unit, 62-story One Thousand Museum was completed in 2019. Hadid, a Pritzker prize-winning architect, died in Miami Beach in 2016, where she was living while designing the tower.The complaint alleges that the developers owe the balance of the mortgage, which is $82.7 million, plus interest of $379,488 as of August 18.The developers entered into three forbearance agreements between July 31 and August 17, according to the complaint. The third and final agreement was terminated in October.The developers said in their statement that their lender was “well aware that our sales team had a record-breaking year of sales, and that we are preparing to pay off of the construction loan this month.” They said they remain focused on selling out the remaining units.Read moreReuben Brothers venture buys stake in One Thousand Museum loanDavid and Victoria Beckham buy condo at One Thousand MuseumBritish billionaires invest in Jeffrey Soffer’s Turnberry resort in Aventura Share via Shortlink Tags Email Address* downtown MiamiforeclosuresOne Thousand MuseumReal Estate LawsuitsReuben Brothers
Pelagic seabirds are highly mobile, reducing the likelihood of allopatric speciation where disruption of gene flow between populations is caused by physically insurmountable, extrinsic barriers. Spatial segregation during the non-breeding season appears to provide an intrinsic barrier to gene flow among seabird populations that otherwise occupy nearby or overlapping regions during breeding, but how this is achieved remains unclear. Here we show that the two genetically distinct populations of Cook’s petrel (Pterodroma cookii) exhibit transequatorial separation of non-breeding ranges at contemporary (ca. 2-3 yrs) and historical (ca. 100 yrs) time scales. Segregation during the non-breeding season per se appears as an unlikely barrier to gene flow. Instead we provide evidence that habitat specialization during the non-breeding season is associated with breeding asynchrony which, in conjunction with philopatry, restricts gene flow. Habitat specialization during breeding and non-breeding likely promotes evolutionary divergence between these two populations via local adaptation.
