At Security Council Ban calls for eradicating weapons of mass destruction once

UN Photo/JC McIlwaine Kim Won-soo, Acting UN High Representative for Disarmament Affairs, addresses the Security Council open debate. UN Photo/Rick Bajornas “I call on all States to focus on one overriding truth: the only sure way to prevent the human, environmental and existential destruction these weapons can cause, is by eradicating [these weapons] once and for all,” said Mr. Ban in his remarks at the Security Council open debate on ‘non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.’ “We – the international community – must ensure the disarmament and non-proliferation framework is universally and completely implemented, and is resilient and versatile enough to grapple with the changing environment,” he added.In his remarks, Mr. Ban said the success in preventing the spread of weapons of mass destruction offers some comfort and that multilateral treaties, including the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), the Chemical Weapons Convention, the Biological Weapons Convention, and instruments, including Security Council resolution 1540, are “robust and tested.” Adopted in 2004, resolution 1540 affirms that the proliferation of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons and their means of delivery constitutes a threat to international peace and security.But the Secretary-General also pointed out that the challenges to the disarmament and non-proliferation architecture are growing. He noted that technological advances have made means of production and methods of delivery of these weapons easier and more accessible. “Vicious non-State actors that target civilians for carnage are actively seeking chemical, biological and nuclear weapons,” he stressed.He said that it is particularly disappointing that progress on eliminating nuclear weapons has descended into fractious deadlock, underscoring that arguments justifying nuclear weapons, such as those used during the Cold War, “were morally, politically and practically wrong thirty years ago, and they are wrong now”.Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urges all states to focus on the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, in order to “prevent the human, environmental and existential destruction these weapons can cause”. Credit: UN News CentreRecalling the Security Council’s convening of the historic summit on non-proliferation and adoption of resolution 1887 (2009) in which it emphasized its primary responsibility to address nuclear threats and its willingness to take action, Mr. Ban said the global community now expects the Council to demonstrate the same leadership on the subject, to build on resolution 1887 and to develop further initiatives to bring about a world free of weapons of mass destruction.While noting that more needs to be done to “bridge the divide” within the international community, the UN chief said that it was encouraging that all UN Member States agree that the collective efforts must complement and strengthen the nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation regime, including the NPT, which is the only treaty-based commitment to nuclear disarmament and has been a strong barrier against nuclear proliferation for nearly 50 years.Biological attacks could be much more devastatingSpeaking on the threat of biological weapons, the Secretary General said that in the wake of serious outbreaks of Ebola, MERS and yellow fever, he is “very concerned” that the international community is not adequately prepared to prevent or respond to a biological attack. “The impact and consequences of a biological attack on a civilian target could far exceed those of a chemical or radiological attack,” he highlighted, stating that the investment in the international architecture dealing with these different types of weapons of mass destruction is not commensurate with their possible effects. “For example, there is no multilateral prevention and verification agency for biological weapons, as there is for nuclear and chemical threats and risks,” he added.The Secretary-General also called on the Security Council to consider how to strengthen resolution 1540 to ensure that non-State actors cannot acquire these horrific weapons. “For twelve years, this resolution has tried to provide a barrier to the threat and risk of weapons of mass destruction use by non-state actors, which is a very real threat,” recalled Mr. Ban.He called on the Council to use the open debate to be proactive in ensuring the resolution continues to be fit for purpose. Gregory Koblentz, Associate Professor and Director of the Biodefense Graduate Program at George Mason University, addresses the Security Council open debate. UN Photo/JC McIlwaine ‹ › People must also be protected from online attacksTurning to the new global threats emerging from the misuse of science and technology, and the power of globalization, the Secretary-General said that the nexus between these emerging technologies and weapons of mass destruction needs close examination and action. “Information and communication technologies, artificial intelligence, 3D printing and synthetic biology will bring profound changes to our everyday lives and benefits to millions of people,” he noted, but cautioned that “their potential for misuse could also bring destruction.”As a starting point, Mr. Ban said the international community must step up to expand common ground for the peaceful use of cyberspace and, particularly, the intersection between cyberspace and critical infrastructure.Expressing that people now live a significant portion of their lives “online,” they must be protected from online attacks, just as effectively as they are protected from physical attacks. “Disarmament and non-proliferation instruments are only as successful as Member States’ capacity to implement them,” he noted, encouraging the members of the Council to devise effective solutions so that all states can fully implement their disarmament and non-proliferation commitments. read more

Tressel Ginn maintain relationship on high school college and professional levels

Jim Tressel feared the worst when he received a phone message from San Francisco 49ers coach Mike Singletary on Oct. 25. Singletary, who was with his team in London, wanted to talk about former Buckeye and current 49ers quarterback Troy Smith. “He said it was regarding Troy, and as a parent, I’m like, ‘Oh, what did Troy do?’ because that’s how you think as a parent,” Tressel said. “So I called him back real quick, and it was good news.” The good news was that Smith would be starting against the Denver Broncos in place of injured quarterback Alex Smith. Singletary was simply gathering information about his new quarterback. Smith is 3-2 as a starting quarterback for the 49ers. Conversations like that between Tressel and Singletary are not unlike the talks Tressel has with Ted Ginn Sr., who coached Smith at Cleveland’s Glenville Academy. Since Tressel was hired in 2001, 14 of Ginn’s former players have played for Tressel at Ohio State. At least one Glenville player has committed to OSU every year since 2002, forming what has become known as the “Glenville pipeline.” But the connection between the two coaches started when Tressel was still coaching at Youngstown State University. Ginn and Tressel met while attending meetings for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes in 1997, where the two discovered that they shared a common vision for their programs. “I always admired him and understood his work,” Ginn said. “He took the leash off us at Youngstown State and made you great. He gave you a purpose and a reason to play football at Youngstown State, and I saw that early on.” The Glenville Tarblooders were hardly a power when Ginn became coach in 1997, as the school was struggling to subsist in one of the poorest areas in east Cleveland. But the school’s fortunes changed when Smith transferred there in 2001 and teamed up with future Buckeye and 49ers teammate Ted Ginn Jr., helping the school reach the state playoffs during his senior year. Smith was the first Tarblooder to play for Tressel at OSU and was followed by a wave of others that included future NFL players Donte Whitner and Ginn Jr. The two schools have since become linked with each other, and Ginn Sr. said the values he shares with Tressel made him comfortable forming that relationship. “Coach Tressel helps you become a man but he also lets you know that you’re doing a job,” Ginn said. “You’re a servant to your state and community. It’s an obligation that you have to do. He’s doing a great job selling Ohio State to the players, and that creates a winning concept.” Senior offensive lineman Bryant Browning, who graduated from Glenville in 2006, echoed Ginn’s sentiments. “Coach Ginn and coach Tressel have that connection with each other,” Browning said. “Both guys really care about you on and off the field and make sure you do the right things to become a proper young man.” The mutual respect between the two coaches goes beyond football, Tressel said. “Coach Ginn has made a huge difference in many young people’s lives,” Tressel said. “His passion really is his school and giving those kids opportunities to become all they can be. “It just so happens that football is kind of his hobby,” Tressel said. “In his 24 hours of the day, he probably spends two or three hours on football and the rest on the kids.” Ginn said he doesn’t get much sleep at night, and there are times when he receives phone calls late at night to help his players. “If we don’t help the kids, who will?” Ginn said. “Take that responsibility of helping the kids like a father and giving them guidance — that’s not in the coaching curriculum, but we put it in the book.” Coming to OSU as an underdog quarterback, Smith surpassed expectations by winning the Heisman Trophy in 2006. During the trophy ceremony, he thanked Tressel and Ginn for their guidance. But the accolades Smith received at OSU didn’t make his transition to the NFL any easier, as he started in only two games during his three years with the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens released Smith before the start of the 2010 season, and he signed with the 49ers as a backup. But an injury to starting quarterback Alex Smith led him into the starting role, and he made the most of it. The 49ers defeated the Broncos in Smith’s first start as he threw for 196 yards and a touchdown. Afterward, Ginn reflected on the player who had come to embody everything he and Tressel coach for. “That’s a miracle,” Ginn said. “If you go by the design of what people think and what’s been in place for many years about kids from the inner city, that is a miracle.” read more

7 things we learned from last nights Midlands NorthWest Prime Time debate

first_img Sounds like water charges might be a step to far #finegael #rtept— MB (@mairinber) May 18, 2014 Source: LAURA/Twitter While Gilroy described Pat ‘The Cope’ as Pat ‘Can’t Cope’ and at one point referred to “ethnically cleansed fish”.Whatever they are.The second debate features Ireland South candidates an is on RTÉ One at 10.35pm tonight. On The Trail: 9 odd, weird and wonderful things from Election 2014Keep up to date: All things Election 2014Read: Spending cuts and immigration policy main issues in EU Commission presidency debate Even Marian Harkin had strong words for the Monaghan councillor saying he was “trying to wrap the austerity flag around him”. But Labour’s Higgins, whose chances of winning a seat are slim, had a go several times, “He’ll be outside the room, while I’ll be in the room.” She even said she’d met Martin Schulz. But how many voters know who he is?2. Water, water, everywhereIn a constituency which includes Roscommon, where in some parts they might end up paying for undrinkable water, it’s no surprise that H2O was a big issue. It formed the basis of Katie Hannon’s pre-debate report and was the first question.Nobody seemed particularly happy about the situation. McGuinness, of Fine Gael, bemoaned the fact Ireland had in the past ignored a bunch of EU water directives and conceded that nobody should pay for water people don’t drink. Format of this debate means all established parties are attacking SF – there’s no one else with a divergent view. #rtept— Colette Browne (@colettebrowne) May 18, 2014 TJ Fay: People are “stressed beyond belief” about water charges. #rtept— Órla Ryan (@orlaryan) May 18, 2014 Lorraine Higgins said Labour had got fairness out of the water deal. The opposition criticised the setting up of Irish Water, Carthy in particularly pivoting back to his anti-austerity message.

Names were dropped, policies were discussedThe crop of current MEPs tried their best to talk about the work they did. We heard about banking union – or, as Harkin put it: “Closing the stable door after the horse has bolted” – while Pat ‘The Cope’ discussed fishing policy. Jim Higgins talked about leaving politics at the door and sticking on the “green jersey”.Both he and McGuinness talked about how great Michael Noonan is while Higgins said he’d met a commissioner who no one’s ever heard of and had written to Joan Burton about the youth guarantee.Ah but has she written back enquired debate moderator David McCullagh? “I’m waiting for an answer,” poor Jim admitted. Source: Órla Ryan/Twitter Jim Higgins: I’ve written to Joan Burton….. urging here… to keep her eye on it… I am waiting for an answer. #rtept— Hugh O’Connell (@oconnellhugh) May 18, 2014 Source: Mairin/Twitter Strange contrast between panel 1 and panel 2 for the European Elections debate #rtept— Aine Mc Manus (@ainemm91) May 18, 2014 Source: Aine Mc/Twitter Source: Colette Browne/Twitter THE FIRST OF three RTÉ Prime Time debates featuring almost all of the European election candidates took place last night with Midlands North-West hopefuls getting their turn.Thirteen of the 14 people running in the vast, 15-county constituency turned up for the debate which was not without its controversy beforehand with the format earning the ire of independent hopefuls Luke ‘Ming’ Flanagan and Rónán Mullen.The duo were part of the second panel of night, but felt aggrieved at being excluded from the first which was made up of sitting MEPs and those with parties or independents with 10 per cent support or more at the last election.Panel one was Labour’s Lorraine Higgins, Sinn Féin’s Matt Carthy, Fine Gael’s Mairead McGuinness and Jim Higgins, Fianna Fáil’s Pat ‘The Cope’ Gallagher, and independent Marian Harkin.Panel two was Direct Democracy Ireland’s Ben Gilroy, Fianna Fáil’s Thomas Byrne, the aforementioned Ming and Mullen, the Green Party’s Mark Dearey, and independents TJ Fay and Mark Fitzsimons.And here are a few things we learned in case you were in bed/doing something better…1. Almost everyone targeted the Sinn Féin candidateMatt Carthy is a big favourite to take a seat in MNW and for that reason alone the other parties were keen, at every opportunity, to have a pop at him particularly after he reeled off the standard Sinn Féin spiel about the current crop of MEPs pursuing “an austerity agenda”. He even held up a copy of the party’s “fully-costed” pre-Budget submission.Lorraine Higgins said the SF’s policies made her “smile” while McGuinness went for an old favourite, telling Carthy: ”Your form of negotiation is almost to put a gun to the head of people… ” 4. The inclusion of two Fine Gael candidates in the first debate was a mistake. Having two MEPs from the same party on the one panel was slightly pointless and that became all the more apparent in the second half when there was no government representative. Mullen claimed this would have sent most people off to bed.Fitzsimons said at one point in the second debate: “You have a lot of people on the same side here, there’s no mix-up in it.” He was right.5. The format of the debate came up Mullen launched into a long criticism of RTÉ for the way they’d constructed the debate. He took “exception” to the structure and earned the applause of at least two other candidates. “You should have drawn lots,” he told Miriam O’Callaghan before at one point accusing her of “listening to the voices in your head”. Maybe he meant her producers. 6. Nigel Farage made an appearanceMiriam was keen to probe DDI candidate Ben Gilroy’s past praise of controversial UKIP leader Nigel Farage and sure enough Gilroy was only to happy to say Farage calls it as he sees it.Later he described Farage as a “lone soldier, but a strong voice” admitting he could well allay himself with the outspoken MEP in the next parliament.7. There were plenty of odd and funny moments Marian Harkin called David McCullagh “Donagh” while Thomas Byrne made the startling admission that ”the past happened, absolutely.”For no particular reason, Ming gave Gilroy pure evils when the latter was talking about the national debt.last_img read more

Ive got a job Ive got two jobs Roy Keane downplays Celtic

first_img“It’s all speculation and that speculation comes from yourselves. I don’t think you’ve heard it from any club sources. As I said, I’ve got a job and a game at the weekend, a busy old weekend coming up and I’m looking forward to that.”Sky Sports, meanwhile, this morning reported that another of Keane’s former clubs is interested in James McCarthy. Is the Ireland midfielder ready for a move to Manchester United?“He’s only been at Everton two minutes,” says the Corkman. “He’s obviously making good progress.“I’m pretty sure there will be speculation about lots of players going to United but James is at a good club in Everton, he’s had a decent couple of seasons and if he keeps progressing, who knows?“But I’m sure he’s pretty happy with where he is.”‘It’s something that will live with me forever’ – Keogh ready for £120m Wembley challengeMan United’s Class of 92 take on a team of builders in a rooftop five-a-side IRELAND ASSISTANT BOSS Roy Keane has distanced himself from the vacant manager’s job at Celtic.Neil Lennon resigned yesterday after a successful term in charge at Parkhead.Former Hoops midfielder Keane has been mooted as a possible replacement in the Celtic Park hotseat.“I’ve got a job… I’ve got two jobs!

Another day another Alienware M14x M18x leak

first_imgIf you weren’t convinced by yesterday’s near-confirmation of the Alienware M14x and Alienware M18x gaming laptops, then you might never be convinced those laptops are coming out. But just in case, here is further evidence.Over at Dell.com a page was found (and reported to us) that helps potential buyers choose the color of their Alienware computers. This page not only lists the currently available M11x, M15x, and M17x R3 (oddly listed as the M17X) but it also has the M14x and the M18x.AdChoices广告The page says the M14x will be available in Stealth Black with Soft Touch Finish and Nebula Red with Soft Touch Finish, confirming previous rumors. The M18x will be Stealth Black with Anodized Aluminum and Nedula Red (no texture mentioned with that one).With some digging it was found that the M17x listed was the M17x R3 (the newest revision) but the M15x is simply the M15x. The M11x is the MLK (Medialess License Kit) and finally there is the M14x “Specter”, which prior rumors have noted to be its codename.So what’s happening over at Dell? Are these legitimate leaks or just efforts to get the word out early? We might never know, but it’s looking like when these systems are announced there won’t be anything near the hype the M17x “All Powerful”. Oh wait, that one leaked early as well… Anyway, at least these look like they’ll be solid options for computer gamers.See the page for yourself at Dell.com.last_img read more

Les glaciers de lHimalaya nauraient pas tant fondu que ça

first_imgLes glaciers de l’Himalaya n’auraient pas tant fondu que çaUne étude du centre de glaciologie de Bristol en Angleterre, publiée avant hier dans la revue Nature, révèle que la couverture de glace de la chaine himalayenne n’aurait pas réduit tant que ça au cours des 10 dernières années.En 2007, le 4e rapport du Giec avait montré que les glaciers de l’Himalaya reculaient plus vite que les autres dans le monde. Il avait ainsi estimé qu’ils “pourraient disparaître d’ici 2035, voire avant”. Une prédiction qui avait d’ailleurs créé la polémique puisqu’il s’agissait d’une coquille, les scientifiques ayant plutôt prévu une disparition pour 2350. Dans tous les cas, plusieurs études ont souligné ces dernières années une fonte croissante des glaciers. À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?Un phénomène que des scientifiques réfutent aujourd’hui pour les glaciers de l’Himalaya. En effet, l’équipe scientifique du professeur Jonathan Bamber, directeur du centre de glaciologie de Bristol, confirme la perte en volume de glace au Groenland et en Antarctique. Toutefois, elle contredit la réduction supposée des glaciers de la chaine de l’Himalaya au Tianshan, entre la Chine et le Kirghizstan. Pour arriver à une telle conclusion, les chercheurs ont basé leurs observations sur des données satellitaires du programme GRACE, initié en 2002 et financé par l’agence spatiale américaine. Les satellites de ce projet lancés en 2001, orbitent en tandem autour de la Terre à près de 500 kilomètres d’altitude, en détectant d’infimes variations de la masse et de la gravité terrestre. Les engins qui se suivent à environ 200 kilomètres de distance, voient cet intervalle s’amenuiser ou grandir et leur vitesse respective se modifier, en fonction de l’attraction terrestre dans la zone qu’ils survolent. Au final, les données obtenues ont montré que la chaine himalayenne n’aurait pas perdu autant de couverture de glace qu’il était estimé : la baisse pourrait être limitée à 4 milliards de tonnes par an alors que les estimations allaient jusqu’à 50 milliards de tonnes par an.Une hausse du niveau des océans de 12 mm en 8 ans De janvier 2003 à décembre 2010, chaque année, ce sont entre 443 à 629 milliards de tonnes d’eau qui se seraient échappées grâce à la fonte des glaciers. Une eau qui aurait participé à une augmentation du niveau des océans de 1,5 millimètre par an sur la même période, soit quelque 12 millimètres en huit ans. Certains scientifiques estimaient qu’elle serait de 50 centimètres, voire d’un mètre mais l’étude montre bien qu’elle ne dépassera pas les 5 centimètres d’ici 2100 si la fonte se prolonge de la même manière. Le Toit du monde ne devrait donc pas disparaitre d’ici peu ce qui ne minimise pas pour autant l’impact du réchauffement climatique sur l’environnement.  Le 10 février 2012 à 17:52 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

MatSu Borough Rejects Ordinance Restricting Cell Tower Construction

first_imgAn ordinance to restrict cell phone tower construction in the Matanuska Susitna Borough was rejected by the Borough’s planning commission last week, in a 5-0 vote. Commissioners said it did not go far enough in regulating the so called “tall ” towers.Download Audio The cell phone tower issue has been a subject of concern for several years, as more of the cell towers sprout in the Borough’s populated areas. An earlier ordinance regulating tower construction was repealed by the Assembly in 2011, but the body did not enact new legislation. A conditional use permit is the only requirement for towers of 100 feet at this time. The Assembly also formed a committee to deal with the problem. That committee drafted the current proposed ordinance. Eileen Probasco, Director of the Borough’s Planning and Zoning Department, says current Boro codes do not cover safety requirements for cell tower construction “Our conditional use permit requirements just generally have a condition on them that the tower be constructed in compliance with other state and federal regulations. The Borough itself doesn’t have any specific requirements on construction of the structure, just mostly the height. “ Probasco says that in a twelve month period after the Borough Assembly repealed the original cell tower ordinance, 54 conditional use permits were applied for. She says those towers would be grandfathered in if a new ordinance is passed by the Assembly. Probasco says the Boro only requires that towers be constructed according to state and federal laws.At least one cell tower was blown over in high winds in the Borough last year.Residents of the Valley have called for restrictions, but the proposed ordinance does little more than require developers of the towers to notify nearby residents two months before construction begins. The proposed ordinance also requires developers to notify the Borough planning department and the local community council. The planning commission has sent the ordinance back to the Mat Su Borough Assembly, which will introduce it at the Assembly’s next meeting Public hearings will be held on the ordinance on April 15.last_img read more

LK Advani Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi among others visit AIIMS to

first_imgNEW DELHI: As former finance minister Arun Jaitley continues to be on life support, politicians, including veteran BJP leader L K Advani and Uttarakhand Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat, visited AIIMS here on Monday to enquire about his health. Union minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi and BJP national general secretary Arun Singh also visited the hospital to know about his wellbeing. Also Read – One arrested for firing outside Satna college in Madhya Pradesh Advertise With Us Jaitley, 66, was rushed to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) on August 9 after he complained of breathlessness and restlessness. AIIMS has not issued any bulletin on Jaitley’s health condition since August 10. According to sources, he is on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) support. A multidisciplinary team of doctors is consistently monitoring his condition.

Advertise With Us Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan had said on Friday, “Doctors at AIIMS are doing the best they can.” President Ram Nath Kovind, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had visited AIIMS on Friday to check on the leader’s health. In May this year, Jaitley was admitted to AIIMS for treatment. Jaitley, a lawyer by profession, had been an important part in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Cabinet in the BJP government’s first term. He held the finance and defence portfolios, and often acted as the chief troubleshooter of the government. Jaitley did not contest the 2019 Lok Sabha election presumably because of his ill-health. He had undergone a renal transplant on May 14 last year at AIIMS with Railways Minister Piyush Goyal filling in for him in the finance ministry at that time. Jaitley, who had stopped attending office since early April last year, was back in the finance ministry on August 23, 2018. In September 2014, he underwent bariatric surgery to correct the weight he had gained because of a long-standing diabetic condition.last_img read more

Banks Profits Fly South for the Winter

first_img Share October 14, 2016 695 Views Banks’ Profits Fly South for the Winter JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, and PNC Financial Group all experienced year-over-year declines in net income in their Q3 2016 earnings reports released Friday.Chase saw its net income drop by 8 percent in Q3, from $6.8 billion last year to $6.3 billion this year. For Citi, the third quarter decline was half a billion, down to $3.8 billion. PNC saw its net income fall from $1.1 billion in Q3 2015 down to $1 billion in Q3 2016.ChaseAccording to Chase, Q3’s net income of $6.3 billion “reflects higher income tax expense in the current quarter. The prior-year quarter included tax benefits of $2.2 billion due to the resolution of tax audits and the release of deferred taxes.”For Chase, despite the 8 percent drop in net income from the previous year, mortgage banking fared well. Mortgage banking income spiked by 21 percent over-the-year in Q3 at Chase, from $1.55 billion up to $1.87 billion. According to the report, the increase was “driven by higher MSR risk management results, higher production margins, and portfolio growth.”CitigroupCitigroup reported a net income of $3.8 billion for the third quarter, a half billion lower than the net income reported in Q3 for the year prior. This was also a decrease from the last quarter of $200 million, or 8 percent. Citi reports that the drop is due to the lower revenues, particularly offset by lower cost of credit and lower operating expenses.Despite this, Citi CEO Michael Corbat said, “I am very encouraged by the underlying momentum across our franchise, notably in several areas where we have been investing. In the quarter, both our Global Consumer Bank and Institutional Clients Group had solid year-over-year revenue increases in nearly every business line and geography. We also continued to grow core loans and deposits while reducing non-core assets to just 3 percent of our balance sheet.”Citi’s loans consisted of $638 billion as of the end of Q3, up 2 percent from the prior year period, and up 3 percent in constant dollars. In constant dollars, 7 percent growth in Citicorp loans was somewhat offset by continued declines in Citi Holdings, driven primarily by continued reductions in the North America mortgage portfolio.PNC Financial ServicesPNC Financial Services Group’s net income for Q3 was $1.0 billion, up from $989 million in the second quarter but down from $1.1 billion from Q3 of 2015. Residential mortgage banking net income accounted for about $13 million of Q3’s net income, compared to the total from Q3 2015 (a loss of $4 million). Residential mortgage banking noninterest income decreased by $5 million over-the-quarter but was up $35 million over-the-year in Q3 up to $160 million, driven by lower net hedging gains on mortgage servicing rights and lower servicing fees offset by higher loan sales revenue from higher origination volumes.“PNC delivered another good quarter,” said William S. Demchak, Chairman, President and CEO. “We grew revenue and managed expenses, loans and deposits increased, and capital levels were strong. Looking ahead, we continue to lay the groundwork for greater efficiencies and revenue growth to deliver positive operating leverage and create long-term shareholder value.”Click here to view JPMorgan Chase’s Q3 earnings report.Click here to view Citi’s Q3 earnings report.Click here to view PNC’s Q3 earnings report.center_img in Daily Dose, Headlines, News Citigroup Earnings JPMorgan Chase PNC Financial Group Profits 2016-10-14 Seth Welbornlast_img read more
