And with that momentum, England had Farrell in the general’s seat silencing a few critics. There are those who feel he is a one-dimensional fly-half, a product of his Saracens upbringing. But Farrell played flat and with a wider screen vision than in any of his previous England appearances. His pass for Geoff Parling’s try was a thing of beauty.Johnny Sexton may play with a more natural élan but Farrell is unflappable. He is ferocious in defence, he boasts a fierce competitive streak and he can play a bit too.Farrell should be the British & Irish Lions Test fly-half this summer.Ruling the airwaves: Richie Gray beats Geoff Parling at a lineoutMidfield headacheKey to Farrell’s approach to the game was the presence outside him of Billy Twelvetrees, who enjoyed an eye-catching debut. It was not long before early comparisons with the Jonny Wilkinson-Will Greenwood axis were being made. Early days, early days. But there is a definite potential for a special partnership to build.Twelvetrees is tall and physical, he’s a strong ball-carrier with a fly-half’s view of the game.The question for Lancaster is whether he can risk heading to Ireland without Brad Barritt anchoring the defence at inside-centre. Manu Tuilagi is fit again and should start at 13. Twelvetrees is on a different level to Barritt with the ball in hand but the Saracen runs England’s defence. I say be bold. Farrell-Twelvetrees-Tuilagi will ask questions of the Irish midfield.Turnover troubleWhere England must improve is in their defence from turnover ball. Scotland punished them twice on Saturday, with tries from Maitland and Stuart Hogg, who was impressive for the visitors. Ireland will be a far more dangerous attacking prospect. There were a few lineout wobbles, too, which Parling will be slavishly ironing out this week. NOT FOR FEATURED Heading Down Under? Owen Farrell enhanced his Lions claims with a strong attacking performanceBy Alex LoweENGLAND RETAINED the Calcutta Cup and launched their Six Nations campaign with a 38-18 victory over Scotland at Twickenham, their biggest win in the fixture for six years. Here’s how…Possession is the lawEngland’s analysis of international rugby had told them that the majority of Test matches in 2012 were won by the team with the least possession. Not on Saturday.England wore Scotland down by bossing both territory (68.5%) and possession (62%) at Twickenham. From the moment Ben Morgan charged upfield in the opening seconds, bouncing Sean Maitland off, England’s ball-carriers had Scotland on the back foot.With Owen Farrell in imperious form behind dominant forwards who were securing quick ball, Scotland never got a foothold in the game.Even when Maitland had given Scotland a surprise lead, England simply marched back downfield and Farrell landed two penalties in quick succession, both earned at the breakdown, to regain control.Centre of attention: Billy TwelvetreesPass and move, it’s the England grooveOne year into Stuart Lancaster’s regime and England are looking to move their game on. They want to play at pace, to keep opposing defences in a permanent state of disorganisation and they achieved it with the forwards offloading and passing before contact. England made a staggering 194 passes and 19 offloads, a “risk-reward” tactic that kept the momentum up and meant Scotland were always scrambling, something they actually did well considering the weight of pressure on them.That game plan relies on good handling skills, which is where Mike Catt’s influence has been important.Lion in waiting To be looking to improve from a winning position, in the wake of a solid, satisfying first performance of the championship is just where Lancaster would want to be.Follow Alex Lowe on Twitter @AlexMLowe LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS

Las mujeres jugaron un papel destacado en la huelga de toda la India, el 26 de noviembre.Por segunda vez este año, una movilización global en una “huelga de toda la India” sacó a 250 millones de trabajadores. Con una de cada cuatro personas en edad de trabajar en la India participando, este paro laboral de 24 horas puede reclamar nuevamente el estatus de “la huelga más grande del mundo”. La primera huelga general récord tuvo lugar el 8 de enero.Participaron diez de las federaciones laborales de la India, unidas bajo la “plataforma conjunta”. Cinco estados (Kerala, Puducherry, Odisha, Assam y Telangana) fueron cerrados por completo, mientras que la actividad diaria se redujo en muchos otros.News Click, una fuente de noticias progresista de la India, informó el 26 de noviembre: “La huelga provocó la interrupción del trabajo en bancos, servicios financieros, diversos servicios gubernamentales, transporte, unidades de acero, puertos y muelles, servicios de telecomunicaciones, plantaciones, unidades de generación de energía, carbón y otras minas, unidades de producción de petróleo y gas natural, y millones de otras industrias diversas”.El informe continúa: “Es probable que las oficinas gubernamentales, los ferrocarriles, los servicios de correos y telégrafos y decenas de otras oficinas gubernamentales también se vean afectados ya que los empleados realizarán manifestaciones de solidaridad. Varias [cientos de miles] mujeres que trabajan como trabajadoras / ayudantes de Anganwadi [guardería infantil rural], trabajadoras de la salud, cocineras de mediodía y las empleadas en otros planes administrados por el gobierno también se han declarado en huelga”.Citando la declaración conjunta del sindicato, dice: “Se han recibido informes de huelgas exitosas en minas de carbón y cobre, incluidas otras minas de recursos minerales. Los empleados de los sectores postal, de telecomunicaciones y siderúrgico también estuvieron en acción y los gramin dak sevaks [trabajadores postales rurales] observaron una huelga del 100 por ciento”. (tinyurl.com/y4wsthaw)Asentamientos, bloqueos de callesLos huelguistas realizaron sentadas y manifestaciones masivas y bloquearon el tráfico y las vías del tren. Quemaron una efigie del presidente de derecha Narendra Modi. Hubo una participación masiva de los trabajadores desempleados, no organizados, autónomos y del sector informal, así como de estudiantes. Las mujeres jugaron un papel destacado.La plataforma conjunta de las federaciones laborales planteó demandas de ingresos mínimos, alimentos para las familias pobres, un número de jornadas garantizadas, salarios más altos, pensiones para todos y el fin de las jubilaciones anticipadas forzadas. Pidió al gobierno que detenga las privatizaciones y también retire todas las “leyes contra los agricultores y los códigos laborales contra los trabajadores”. Surgieron demandas adicionales en torno a una serie de cuestiones, desde la finalización de la subcontratación del trabajo hasta la reimposición de la jornada de 12 horas. La provisión de medidas de seguridad para detener la propagación de COVID fue un tema clave, ya que India tiene la segunda tasa de infección por coronavirus más alta del mundo. (Worldometers, 29 de noviembre)Mientras 250 millones de trabajadores estaban en huelga, agricultores de todo el país intentaron marchar hacia Delhi, la capital del país. Están protestando por un nuevo “proyecto de ley agrícola” a favor de las empresas agrícolas, pero los agricultores también se solidarizan plenamente con los trabajadores.Las fuerzas gubernamentales bloquearon los caminos de los agricultores con barricadas y alambre de púas, y dispararon gas lacrimógeno y cañones de agua en medio del frío. Pero, anticipándose a los obstáculos impuestos por el gobierno, los agricultores empacaron una variedad de suministros, desde alimentos y agua hasta cargadores de teléfonos celulares. Estos agricultores decididos se negaron a moverse, rompiendo los bloqueos hasta que se les permitió ir al Parlamento y presentar sus demandas.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Higher Net Interest Rate Income Drives Revenue Hike for SunTrust; Comerica Earnings Down SunTrust Banks, Inc. reported a net income increase of 14 percent to $467 million available to common shareholders, according to the bank’s Q2 2015 earnings statement released Friday. The bank credits their continued execution of core strategies to their solid earnings growth and improved returns.The Q2 2015 net income for SunTrust was $0.89 per average common diluted share compared to $0.78 per share earned in the last quarter, and includes a $0.03 favorable impact by a per share from a discreet income tax benefit.According to the report, earnings per share increased $0.17 over the second quarter of 2014, which was negatively impacted by $0.09 per share. For the first half of 2015, earnings per share were $1.67.”Our performance this quarter demonstrates solid execution of our key strategies – deepening client relationships, optimizing the balance sheet, and improving efficiency,” said William H. Rogers, Jr., chairman and CEO of SunTrust. “This was evidenced by higher revenue, continued deposit growth, and improved returns. In addition, our asset quality performance continues to be strong. As we look forward, we are confident in our strategies and remain intensely focused on delivering further value to our clients and shareholders.”Total revenue was $2.1 billion for the current quarter, an increase of $85 million compared to the previous quarter. SunTrust noted that this increase is mostly due to higher net interest income and broad-based growth in fee income.SunTrust determined that mortgage production-related income for the current quarter was $76 million compared to $83 million for the prior quarter and $52 million for the second quarter of 2014. Mortgage production volume increased 27 percent compared to the prior quarter and applications declined 10 percent sequentially, entirely driven by lower refinance activity given the increase in interest rates in the second quarter.“The sequential quarter decrease was due to a decline in interest rate lock volume and gain-on-sale margins,” the report said. “The increase compared to the second quarter of 2014 was driven by higher mortgage production volume and a decline in the provision for repurchases, partially offset by a decline in gain-on-sale margins. Gain-on-sale margins in the current quarter were adversely impacted by higher mortgage interest rates and an increase in loan production from the correspondent channel.”The earnings report also found that mortgage servicing income was $30 million for the current quarter, compared to $43 million in the prior quarter.Comerica reported that their Q2 2015 earnings reached $135 million, or $0.73 cents per share in their earnings statement also released on Friday. Last quarter, the bank reported a net income of $134 million and $151 million fo Q2 2014.”Our second quarter results reflect the advantages of our diverse geographic footprint and industry expertise,” said Ralph W. Babb, Jr., chairman and CEO for Comerica. “Average loans were up $2.1 billion, or 5 percent, compared to a year ago and were up $682 million, or 1 percent, relative to the first quarter, with increases in most markets and business lines. Relative to the first quarter, average deposits increased $408 million, or 1 percent, with noninterest-bearing deposits up $668 million.”Comerica’s revenue increased 2 percent compared to Q1 2015 and returned $96 million to shareholders through equity buybacks and increased dividend.”Revenue was up 2 percent, with growth in both net interest income and fee income in the second quarter. Charge-offs, nonaccruals and criticized loans remained well below normal historical levels. The provision for credit losses increased, primarily as a result of an increase in reserves for energy exposure. Noninterest expenses decreased $23 million to $436 million, primarily due to a decrease in litigation-related expense. Our balance sheet is well positioned to benefit as rates rise. We remain focused on the long-term with a relationship banking strategy that continues to serve us well.” Sign up for DS News Daily Share Save Print This Post Banks Comerica Earnings Statements Profits SunTrust 2015-07-17 Brian Honea Previous: Fed Likely to Raise Rates By Year’s End If ‘Economy Evolves’ As Expected Next: Fannie Mae Reaches Milestone With Latest Credit Risk Sharing Transaction Subscribe Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Related Articles Xhevrije West is a talented writer and editor based in Dallas, Texas.
