Share Pfizer raises payout 11 per cent Tags: NULL Drugs giant Pfizer said it was raising its quarterly dividend to 20 cents per share from 18 cents yesterday as it named board member George Lorch as nonexecutive chairman, a week after the abrupt departure of chairman and chief executive Jeffrey Kindler. Kindler quit suddenly a week last Sunday night with no warning to shareholders. Pfizer’s shares had fallen about 27 per cent during his tenure, which was marked by last year’s $67bn (£42.2bn) acquisition of rival Wyeth. whatsapp Monday 13 December 2010 9:26 pm whatsapp KCS-content Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

Yorkshire and Clydesdale Banks are on track to deliver £10bn of new lending to business and mortgage customers by October, its owner said today.Trading in the three months to the end of December was “sound and resilient” although “subdued demand for credit and low interest rates continue to restrict balance sheet and income growth”, it said in a statement.The lengthening economic recovery has also affected customers’ ability to pay back loans, causing a slight decline in its ratio of impaired assets to total lending, National Australia Bank group said.“Against a background of continued economic uncertainty, our UK business continues to demonstrate its resilience and our prudent strategic direction is unchanged,” said chief executive Lynne Peacock.NAB warned that the outlook remained weak as public spending cuts and Eurozone uncertainty put a drag on the recovery. In its first-quarter trading update, NAB said it made cash earnings of A$1.3 billion (£817m), an 18 per cent rise on the same period a year earlier.

He said the diocesan companion links formed an important bedrock where relationships were mutual and inter-dependent and were a wonderful sign of the “bonds of affection.” Kafwanka also spoke of the new Youth Awards, created to encourage innovation and highlight successful work.“Joining the dots” was the way the Rev. Terrie Robinson, director for women and church in society, described her work. She painted a bleak picture of the world faced by many women and girls – of forced marriage; female genital mutilation; sexual violence in war; trafficking and the threat of so-called honor killing. Robinson said change was hard to achieve but Anglicans were responding – and explained her role was to tell the stories of successful initiatives and lobby at the highest level for change.The positive response by Anglicans in the face of a torrent of humanitarian crises around the world was the theme of the report by the Rev. Flora Winfield, the Anglican Communion’s representative at the United Nations in Geneva. She described her role as “working on behalf of the world’s most disregarded people.”She said the church had provided “outstanding service” often when Anglicans themselves were suffering the consequences of the disaster too. International relief agencies were creaking under the weight of the demands on them, but the communion was providing help on the ground, quickly and with love. Winfield explained her role in educating the church about the institutions of the UN – and raising “faith literacy” within the UN – and her part in ecumenical and interfaith work.ACC members also heard from Director of Continuing Indaba the Rev. Phil Groves about how this initiative was bringing people together in places as diverse as Kenya, New York and India. Groves said the project had now become a process and was being used around the world to build community, energize mission and provide a context to resolve conflict.He explained how indaba had been used by two warring clans in Kenya and had resulted in them rescinding aggressive oaths dating back to the 1960s; how it was being applied in Burundi in the face of conflict; how it had been used by the Diocese of New York to unite an incredibly diverse range of parishes and how indaba had resolved a dispute between dalits and tribal people in Northern India.Andy Bowerman and Rachael Carnegie reported back on the work of the Anglican Alliance and its three pillars of development, relief and advocacy. They conceded that the Alliance was relatively new and still learning how to have an impact – but then listed a wide range of areas and initiatives. One example from Rachael detailed support for a business project in Kenya, while Andy explained how the Alliance helped to energize a vast campaign to lobby the COP21 climate conference in Paris.The session concluded with a short report from the new director for communications, Adrian Butcher, who took up his post just before ACC16. He paid tribute to his predecessor, Jan Butter, and expressed his desire to build on the vision to establish worldwide communication network. Butcher spoke of the need for training and his desire to see positive stories about the work of the communion shared more widely and more effectively among what he described as “this wonderful worldwide family.”The directors are mainly based at the Anglican Communion Office in London.

Photo by David Raleigh THE mother of a teenage girl who took her life after being subjected to repeated racist slurs, has appealed to Irish people to support the Black Lives Matter protest and call out racism whenever they see it.Aisling O’Neill attended a protest rally in Limerick on Saturday in response to the killing of black man and father of three, George Floyd, in Minneapolis on May 25.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Ms O’Neill’s 16 year-old daughter Mia took her own life last September, following a campaign of racist abuse.“It was years of racial abuse at the hands of adults that started when she was four years of age and I’ve been campaigning tirelessly since then against racism in Ireland,” Ms O’Neill told the Limerick Post.“I have two other children, an eleven-year-old boy and a four-year-old girl, and both have also experienced racist abuse.”“It has to end. I have lost a child already to this racism, and I can’t stand back.”“I have a fear and anxiety that it will happen to my other two children, and I also stand in solidarity with the black community. I have friends and relatives who are black, and there has to be change.”“I welcome this protest and I welcome the black community being able to show their voices and be heard, because they have been unheard for so long.”“You have to call it when you see it, and we have to make the racists the minority now. The only minority in this world should be the racists because it’s one life and one race,” Ms O’Neill declaredCatherine Osikoya speaks to hundreds at the Black Lives Matter protest in Limerick. Photo: Cian ReinhardtAmong the hundreds who attended the rally in Arthur’s Quay Park was Nigerian born Catherine Osikoya (23) who addressed the crowd about her family’s experiences of racism.She described how her father Paul Osikoya, an accountant and university lecturer in Galway, who had campaigned as a Green Party candidate in local elections, saw his election posters daubed with the word ‘N***r’.“It was absolutely terrible. As we were driving home one day, we just saw black marks on his poster, which were racist,” said Ms Osikoya, who has spent most of her life in Ireland.“They called him the ‘N word’ on his poster. We are part of society here, and you’re doing that to us?,” she continued.“I’m not trying to say this is a white versus black thing; this is everybody versus racism. This is going on for far too long, and we need to step up for change big time,” she said.“Ireland is everything I’ve ever known.”Hundreds attended a Black Lives Matter protest in Limerick City on Saturday. Photo: Cian ReinhardtOsikoya, a student at University of Limerick, said she was inspired to protest, because of her father’s resilience in the face of racism, and because of her deep pride in her Nigerian roots.“Watching my Dad and all that stuff made me see that I have to fight for this. This is my culture. Racism can’t continue”.Three other speakers at the rally, Oyinkan Adedeji, Tracey Obiakor, and Jennifer Ikponmwosa, all from Limerick, rallied the crowd by chanting as gaeilge, “Saol dubh tabhactach (“Black Lives Matter”) and “Aon cheartas ná síochain (“No Justice No Peace”).While demonstrators attempted to abide by social distancing guidelines, some appeared to be closer than the two-metre rule.Gardaí kept a watching brief, but there were no reports of any incidents during the rally.
