HSBC nearing a verdict on chairmanship

first_img A SUCCESSOR to HSBC chairman Stephen Green could be announced as soon as next week, it emerged over the weekend.Former Goldman Sachs investment banker John Thornton is still widely tipped as one of the favourites to step into Green’s shoes after he resigned to become trade and investment minister in the coalition government.However, it is understood that HSBC’s board is considering its alternatives carefully, including appointing its senior independent director Sir Simon Robertson as chairman on an interim basis, with a view to appointing a permanent successor in a few years’ time.Robertson, who also spent time at Goldman Sachs as chairman of its London business, currently chairs Rolls Royce, meaning that some juggling will have to take place to afford him time to conduct both roles. HSBC’s board will meet in Shanghai next week, with Green’s replacement top of the agenda for discussion.HSBC insiders also believe chief executive Michael Geoghegan is still in the running for the chairmanship, despite talk that he would prefer to stay in an executive position, particularly given his recent relocation to Hong Kong. A source at the bank last week told City A.M. that a move for Geoghegan “should not be ruled out”.The bank said yesterday that a decision had not yet been made and that it had only undertaken to announce a successor before the end of the year.Green, who has already stepped down from his positions as chairman of the British Bankers’ Association and deputy president of the CBI, is due to relinquish his role at HSBC before the year is out to take up the last remaining vacancy in David Cameron’s government.

Downtown voting slow and steady Tuesday

first_img Tagged: biden, downtown ithaca, election 2020, peter champelli, tompkins county, Trump, voting ITHACA, N.Y. –– Voting sites throughout Tompkins County saw voters flock to cast their ballots Tuesday, but in the heart of downtown Ithaca polling places had lines that moved slow and steady throughout the day.Devra Rivkin, a long-time poll site manager at Southside Community Center, said that previous years saw higher day-of turnout.“Usually during a presidential election we have an influx of voters and because of the early voting, we’ve had a very low turnout,” said Rivkin. “It’s really hard to say. Is it just people voted early or they’re just deciding not to vote?”Rivkin believes the low turnout is due to the high number of early voters in Tompkins County and throughout the nation, but is still concerned about the shift.“The only thing really is just not knowing if we’re going to get a drop in people (voting) or not,” Rivkin said.In addition to early voting, there has also been a high rate of absentee voting in Tompkins County –– approximately 11,000 people have returned absentee ballots as of Tuesday. However, as misinformation continues to spread regarding the reliability of mail-in voting, many have chosen to still cast their ballots in person.Harmony Malone, who works at the Greater Ithaca Activities Center, said that she decided to vote in-person partially due to concerns about mail-in voting. Your government news is made possible with support from: “There’s something that makes it very real when you are in-person versus sending it in the mail and having the potential of it getting lost. It just feels more concrete when you’re there and actually submitting the form yourself,” Malone said.In addition to making up a smaller percentage of in-person voters on Election Day, downtown Ithaca residents were also torn in their enthusiasm for casting their ballot.Harmony Malone in particular was passionate about making her voice heard.“The intersectionality of being both a person of color, a woman, with the issues with our President, the current status of everything that’s going on in our world with the pandemic, us trying to fight for our lives and be heard and be seen and recognized and the injustices that have taken place this year. It’s absolutely necessary (to vote),” Malone said.On the other hand, voter Shariah Payne said that she is anxious for the results of the Presidential election, and doesn’t feel passionately about either candidate.“I think I’m anxious for the country as a whole because no matter what the results are, there are going to be divides. So the results won’t really change anything,” Payne said. “Personally, I don’t really see either candidate or either side more fit than the other. However, I do think one side has more care for all of the people than the other one.”Polls close at 9 p.m. tonight and initial returns for local races will begin coming in at 10 p.m. However, Tompkins County voters may not know the outcome of the local elections until mid-November as massive amounts of absentee ballots won’t begin to be counted until Nov. 10. last_img read more

Subaqueous, basaltic lava dome and carapace breccia on King George Island, South Shetland Islands, Antarctica

first_imgOn King George Island during latest Oligocene/earliest Miocene time, submarine eruptions resulted in the emplacement of a small (ca. 500 m estimated original diameter) basalt lava dome at Low Head. The dome contains a central mass of columnar rock enveloped by fractured basalt and basalt breccia. The breccia is crystalline and is a joint-block deposit (lithic orthobreccia) interpreted as an unusually thick dome carapace breccia cogenetic with the columnar rock. It was formed in situ by a combination of intense dilation, fracturing and shattering caused by natural hydrofracturing during initial dome effusion and subsequent endogenous emplacement of further basalt melt, now preserved as the columnar rock. Muddy matrix with dispersed hyaloclastite and microfossils fills fractures and diffuse patches in part of the fractured basalt and breccia lithofacies. The sparse glass-rich clasts formed by cooling-contraction granulation during interaction between chilled basalt crust and surrounding water. Together with muddy sediment, they were injected into the dome by hydrofracturing, local steam fluidisation and likely explosive bulk interaction. The basalt lava was highly crystallised and degassed prior to extrusion. Together with a low effusion temperature and rapid convective heat loss in a submarine setting, these properties significantly affected the magma rheology (increased the viscosity and shear strength) and influenced the final dome-like form of the extrusion. Conversely, high heat retention was favoured by the degassed state of the magma (minimal undercooling), a thick breccia carapace and viscous shear heating, which helped to sustain magmatic (eruption) temperatures and enhanced the mobility of the flow.last_img read more

easyProperty.com to ‘go hybrid’ after being sold to marketing firm

first_imgProperty marketing services company Evolve is to become the new owner of online estate agency easyProperty after agreeing to buy it from eProp Services Group, owners of The Guild and Fine & Country.It is planning to turn the business into a hybrid estate agency rather than the purely online ‘passive intermediary’ model it has followed, it has told The Negotiator.“Moving home is emotional and sometimes alarming and people do want support from knowledgeable, local human beings and our licencees will be the boots on the ground,” says Evolve CEO David Brierley.Evolve will complete the purchase at the beginning of August and the deal has been facilitated with the direct financial help of easyJet founder Sir Stelio Haji-Ioannou.It includes the easyProperty brand and the tech platform and website behind it and draws a line under a difficult few years for the business at eProp, during which it has struggled to achieve profitability.Asked whether he views the deal as risky move given the current property market and the demise of other online estate agents, Brierley said “We don’t really see there being a difference between online and offline agents – in the end, we all do the same job and the only difference is that we will use modern technology to make the vendor’s life and sale easier.”He also says he will be spending money on local marketing in support of current and future licencees but will not be conducting any national marketing campaigns, as eProp Services Group did.Strategic reviewOnly two weeks ago eProp announced that it was undertaking a strategic review of the online estate agency with a view to either selling it off or closing it down.Evolve is one of the leading property marketing services in the UK and was set up 12 years ago by CEO David Brierley (pictured, above). The deal will enable the company to offer its photography, floor plans, viewings, EPCs, inventories and other services to the existing easyProperty licensees.“We are also extremely pleased to have the financial support of Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou as a significant shareholder and owner of the easy family of brands, who has a very personal interest in seeing the brand succeed.”Local firstEvolve is to concentrate on helping existing easyProperty licensees grow their businesses and will focus on a ‘local first’ strategy in each area while also finding new agents to take up licences.“People move house within a pretty small radius of where they live so we want people locally to appreciate how well we can sell their home so we’re creating territories that we will then be licencing to estate agents, not existing firms but good, ambitious branch managers and senior negotiators who feel they’ve hit their glass ceiling and want to start up their own business,” says Brierley.The first regions to be tackled will be South Wales, North Wales and South Yorkshire where there are already active licensees and a strong local presence.Read Anthony Codling’s guest post on easyProperty.com.Agents interested in becoming an easyProperty franchisee should contact Brierley on 02392 200598. david brierley Sir Stelio Haji-Ioannou. evolve easyProperty.com July 31, 2019Nigel Lewis2 commentsPeter Burnham, NicheCom NicheCom 2nd August 2019 at 4:32 pmProbably not the way their existing customer base wanted to see them ‘Evolve’?Log in to ReplyChris Arnold, andsothestorybegan andsothestorybegan 31st July 2019 at 8:13 amMessage.Platform.Environment.Three things that any agency has to address.The message has to win the hearts and minds of a sceptical public who view agents as a commodity. If that message is no different to every other agency, there’s a problem.Local community is perfect for the vast majority of agents, but there is always insufficient engagement to create loyalty. Agencies need to create their own platform and attract an audience that likes what they have to say. Blogs, podcasts and self-hosted videos are under utilised.The market is what it is. So it’s important to have better clients. To have clients that are happy to pay you what you’re worth. Clients that will spread the word.Vendors don’t choose your service.
