Rabada ruled out of remaining IPL matches
New Delhi: In a big blow for Delhi Capitals, South Africa pacer Kagiso Rabada has been ruled out of the remaining matches of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) due to a back injury. Rabada will now return to his homeland. It was earlier reported that the final call will be taken by Cricket South Africa (CSA) who had asked for the Rabada’s scan reports to be sent to them. The current Purple Cap holder, who was carrying a back niggle over the last couple of days, has been advised to return by CSA, as a precautionary measure ahead of the World Cup beginning May 30.

It’s been a tremendous season for me with the Delhi Capitals, both on and off the field, and I truly believe that our team can win the trophy.” Delhi Capitals’ head coach Ricky Ponting said: “It’s unfortunate that Rabada is having to leave us at this stage of the tournament.”
Morocco Launches TollFree Number for Moroccans Overseas
Rabat- Foreign minister Nasser Bourita said in a meeting with the press on Thursday that the initiative is an “important step forward.”The hotline will allow Moroccans to track the processing of passports and other files. According to Bourita, the toll-free number will make Moroccans living abroad less dependent on visiting Moroccan consulates.Bourita added that the project is the result of four years of preparations. He expects that it will increase transparency and the “adoption of unified criteria for transactions and administrative documents.” Read Also: Morocco Adds Entry Permit Requirement for African CountriesBourita said that there will be a call center available from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. providing services in seven languages. The languages will include “national dialects” and “other languages.”Morocco’s Minister Delegate in charge of Moroccans Residing Abroad (MREs) Abdelkrim Benatiq noted in July that there are 5 million MREs.Benatiq’s ministry is working to implement programs to consolidate ties between MREs and Morocco.These programs, according to the official, are part of the national strategy to preserve the Moroccan identity of MREs. It is also designed to protect their rights and to promote interest in Morocco’s development.According to Benatiq, Moroccan expats “represent a model of coexistence and respect for each other’s beliefs.”In May, Morocco’s exchange regulator said that remittances from Moroccans living abroad hit $1.7 billion in the first quarter of 2018. The number represented an increase of 13.4 percent from the same period in 2017.
Morocco Needs more Economic Investments Head of Bank Al Maghrib Tells
Rabat – On the eve of Throne Day, King Mohammed VI received on Sunday Governor of Bank Al Maghrib Abdellatif Jouahri and Head of Auditors’ Court Driss Jettou, and both presented the monarch with their annual reports.During his meeting with the King, Jouahri discussed Morocco’s financial situation in 2017, emphasizing that the domestic economy grew at a rapid rate last year. The local economy expanded by 4.1 percent, owing to good climatic conditions for agriculture and overall economic recovery.According to the head of Bank Al Maghrib, the improving economy helped establish job opportunities in the North African country. However, job growth was not enough to curb unemployment, thereby increasing the unemployment rate. Jouahri added that the fiscal deficit narrowed to 3.6 percent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP), and the current account deficit eased to 3.4 percent of GDP.The balance helped the country maintain international reserves at a level providing coverage for approximately six months of imports.The inflation rate slowed to 0.7 percent in 2017.Progress below expectationsDespite economic growth throughout 2017, Jouahri said that the progress made by the country did not meet expectations. Non-agricultural activity remains behind.Jouahri also said that private investment is still limited despite the incentives Morocco grants and its public spending.“Our country needs not only to pursue and enlarge the scope of reforms, but also and more particularly to see to their successful implementation within the set deadlines,” he added.Jouahri then gave an example of the education system, emphasizing that its goals have not been achieved yet.Jouahri believes that Morocco’s reform of the subsidy system should be finalized and generalized as part of a comprehensive policy to establish price reality and provide support for the poorest households.The official did not deny that the country has achieved progress in terms of stability, regional positioning, and investment attractiveness, but he called for a real economic takeoff and a massive mobilization of its dynamic forces to enable stronger growth and job creation. Jettou’s reportDriss Jettou, whose revealing 2017 report brought down several officials involved in development projects in Al Hoceima, presented the monarch with the Court of Auditors’ report for the years 2016-2017, in accordance with Article 148 of the Constitution and Article 100 of Law 62.99 forming the financial court’s code.Jettou said that his department conducted 160 audit missions and made 2,668 decisions regarding the accounts, as well as 215 decisions on budgetary and financial discipline.He recommended that support programs ensure sustainable development and balanced growth across various sectors.
World Bank sees moderate pick up for global economy in 2017 despite
Growth in emerging market and developing economies as a whole should pick up to 4.2 per cent this year from 3.4 per cent in the year just ended amid modestly rising commodity prices. Nevertheless, the outlook is clouded by uncertainty about policy direction in major economies. A protracted period of uncertainty could prolong the slow growth in investment that is holding back low, middle, and high income countries.In emerging market and developing economies, which account for one-third of global gross domestic product (GDP) and about three-quarters of the world’s population and the world’s poor, investment growth fell to 3.4 per cent in 2015 from 10 per cent on average in 2010, and likely declined another half percentage point last year.Slowing investment growth is partly a correction from high pre-crisis levels, but also reflects obstacles to growth that emerging and developing economies have faced, including low oil prices for oil exporters, slowing foreign direct investment for commodity importers, and more broadly, private debt burdens and political risk.Commodity-exporting emerging market and developing economies are expected to expand by 2.3 per cent in 2017 after an almost negligible 0.3 per cent in 2016, as commodity prices gradually recover and as Russia and Brazil resume growing after recessions.In contrast, commodity-importing emerging market and developing economies should grow at 5.6 per cent this year, unchanged from 2016. China is projected to continue an orderly growth slowdown to a 6.5 per cent rate. However, overall prospects for emerging market and developing economies are dampened by tepid international trade, subdued investment, and weak productivity growth.Growth is projected to ease to 6.2 per cent in East Asia and the Pacific, pick up to 2.4 per cent in Europe and Central Asia, return to positive growth and expand by 1.2 per cent in Latin America and Caribbean, recover modestly to a 3.1 per cent in Middle East and North Africa, pick up modestly to 7.1 per cent in South Asia, and to 2.9 per cent in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Photo: World Bank/Dominic Chavez “After years of disappointing global growth, we are encouraged to see stronger economic prospects on the horizon,” World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim said in a news release.“Now is the time to take advantage of this momentum and increase investments in infrastructure and people. This is vital to accelerating the sustainable and inclusive economic growth required to end extreme poverty,” he added.The World Bank’s Global Economic Prospects January 2017 said that growth in advanced economies is expected to edge up to 1.8 per cent in 2017. Growth in the United States is expected to pick up to 2.2 per cent, as manufacturing and investment growth gain traction after a weak 2016.Fiscal stimulus in major economies – particularly in the United States – could generate faster domestic and global growth than projected, although rising trade protection could have adverse effects. But because of the “outsize role the United States plays in the world economy, changes in policy direction may have global ripple effects,” added World Bank Development Economics Prospects Director Ayhan Kose.
Toni Stone Replaced Hank Aaron In Negro Leagues Becoming
In 1952, when the legendary Hank Aaron began his historic Major League Baseball career by leaving the Negro Leagues and signing with the Boston Braves, he was replaced by someone who would build a legacy of trailblazing that is far less known than what Aaron did in becoming the original home run king.Toni Stone was not nearly the player Aaron became, but she—yes, she—was good enough to assume his roster position, breaking the gender barrier in pro baseball.It’s a little-known fact pointed out by The Root that Stone, whose birth name was Marenia Stone, had pretended to be 16 when she was really 26 so she could sign on with the American Legion Junior League team, which had previously been open to teenage boys.She then joined the barnstorming San Francisco Sea Lions, where she changed her name to Toni Stone. And from 1949 to ’53, she played on several semipro and Negro League teams. After Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier, more and more players fled the Negro Leagues to play in “The Bigs.”Syd Pollack, owner of the Indianapolis Clowns, sought to replace Aaron with someone of talent and who would be a novelty to help draw a crowd. Stone was his answer.But he was not expecting her to be all about the game and not the show. She was a skilled ballplayer who wanted to play ball—not dress in a shorts or a skirt as the all-white women of the professional women’s league did.She said in a 1991 interview with the San Francisco Chronicle that she was routinely ridiculed by fans who did not want a woman playing among men.“They’d tell me to go home and fix my husband some biscuits,” she said.But she pressed on. Although she did not consistently get on the field, she accomplished something that gave her a life joy, she said to The Chronicle: She said she got a hit off of the great Satchel Paige.“The happiest moment of my life” she said of the unexpected hit she got off of Satchel Paige.Whether a myth or true—a historian said Paige was not at the site of the game Stone said she got her hit off of him—she represented something new at a time when chauvinism was rampant and women had their “place,” and it was not with men on the baseball field.Stone played professional baseball for just one more year. At the end of the 1953 season, the Clowns sold her contract to the Kansas City Monarchs, replacing her with two female players, Connie Morgan at second base and Mamie “Peanut” Johnson on the pitcher’s mound. Her time on the Monarchs was unfulfilling, and she left after a season, returning to San Francisco to become a nurse and to care for her husband, who would live to be 103 years old.She lived in relative obscurity until she was rediscovered and inducted into the Women’s Sports Foundation International Sports Hall of Fame in 1985—11 years before she passed away in Alameda, Calif.
Gold slump drops PAI to alltime low
SNL MEG’s Pipeline Activity Index (PAI) has been struggling through 2013, slumping to the lowest level since the Industry Monitor began compiling the data in 2008. Gold is now at its lowest price since 2010, exacerbating the effects of the difficult financing conditions that have persisted since last year. There have been reductions in grassroots spending which has resulted in lower numbers of drill results and initial resource estimates, while slashing of budgets and weak metals prices are leading to cuts and delays in capital improvement plans at mines and more shelved development projects.The industry’s aggregate market cap declined in May before falling even further in June to finishat $1.24 trillion which is the lowest since June 2009 and has now declined 30% since January. The number of drill results announced in May-June is slightly up of the lackluster March-April period, but is down 30% from May-June 2012. The numbers of reported new finds noticeably declined in the first half of 2013, as the active companies continue to curtail grassroots and generative work in favor of expanding known ore bodies.The September quarter is typically the peak reporting season for drill results, but for 2013 this seems to be unlikely due to weakening metal prices, which was preceded by persistent financing difficulties suggests there are going to be further declines before showing signs of improvement.The 49 significant financings, worth $2 million minimum, completed in May-June is the lowest two-month total since at least the start of 2008, when the Industry Monitor began tracking this data. Junior and intermediate companies raised a total of $585 million in the period, 70% less than March-April and 66% less than the corresponding period in 2012. Weakened metals prices coupled with the financing volatility that has persisted since mid-2012 have left many junior explorers fighting for survival. Some have successfully negotiated JVs or found strategic investors that will hopefully see them through, while others are looking to partner or merge with peers. However, the number of companies able to secure funding based solely on the strength of their assets continues to dwindle.
Microsoft job ad says new Xbox by March 2014
The Xbox 360Best Price at Amazon is fast approaching its 7th birthday, which means that Microsoft has to be at least thinking about the console’s successor. There’s been plenty of rumors about the performance of the Xbox 720, that it doesn’t have a disc drive, and was going to be revealed at E3. Now Microsoft has confirmed the new machine will appear within the next 18 months.This “leak,” if you can call it that, comes via a job ad Microsoft posted on its careers website. It’s for a marketing position, and the first line of the ad is what we are most interested in. It clearly states that Microsoft will be releasing new versions of key products over the next 18 months. Included in that list is Xbox.18 months from now will be March 2014. If the job listing is correct, it means we can expect to see an Xbox 720 on store shelves by then. Microsoft released both the Xbox and Xbox 360 in November, so the safe bet is on the new hardware launching in November 2013.The job ad may be wrong, though. A new version of the Xbox could mean a number of things. For example, Microsoft may be planning on launching a smaller version of the Xbox 360, or somehow integrating Kinect further, requiring a new model launch.Saying that though, the time is right for new hardware. Wii U is appearing this year and is expected to at least match the Xbox 360 on performance. Microsoft will also want to beat Sony to market again and get a good head start on the PS4.So, an Xbox 720 launch in November next year. Is that too soon, not soon enough, or perfect timing?Read more at Microsoft Careers, via OXM
Des abeilles équipées dantennes pour mesurer la nocivité des pesticides
Des abeilles équipées d’antennes pour mesurer la nocivité des pesticidesAfin de démontrer la nocivité des pesticides sur les abeilles, des chercheurs ont équipé les insectes pollinisateurs de petites antennes radar permettant de suivre de manière très précise leur déplacement. A l’heure où la santé des abeilles est une problématique au cœur des préoccupations, les études se multiplient pour comprendre comment certains facteurs, pesticides ou maladies, compromettent la survie des insectes pollinisateurs. Dans cet intérêt, une équipe de biologistes du laboratoire Rothamsted Research, au Royaume-Uni, et des scientifiques allemands ont entrepris d’équiper les spécimens de petites antennes radar. Les dispositifs légers, de quelques centimètres de long, ont été collés sur le dos des intéressés afin de suivre individuellement et avec précision chaque trajectoire entreprise. L’objectif d’une telle opération, est de récolter des preuves scientifiques démontrant l’influence des pesticides appartenant à la famille très controversée des néonicotinoïdes sur le système de navigation des abeilles. Des effets nocifs confirmés Quelques mois plus tôt, l’Union européenne a voté pour interdire l’utilisation de ces substances par crainte qu’elles nuisent aux abeilles. Toutefois, le gouvernement britannique ne soutient pas l’interdiction et exige davantage d’efforts de recherche pour confirmer ou non les inquiétudes des autres états membres.Pour ce faire, les chercheurs ont étudié les déplacements de 400 insectes après leur avoir fait consommé pour la moitié du nectar contaminé par les pesticides et pour l’autre moitié du nectar sain en guise de test. Les résultats, à paraitre cette semaine dans un épisode spécial de l’émission télévisée Horizon sur BBC One, semblent aller dans le sens des accusations clamées depuis quelques années par les organisations environnementales. En effet, les tests montrent clairement que les abeilles ayant consommé un sirop contaminé sont incapables d’utiliser leur mémoire de navigation pour retrouver leur chemin vers la ruche et volent de manière aléatoire plutôt qu’en lignes droites. La mémoire des abeilles entravée sous l’effet des pesticidesPour Randolf Menzel, neurobiologiste allemand et directeur des travaux, les abeilles font appel à deux types de mémoire pour retrouver leur chemin. La première est une sorte de navigateur automatique qui permet aux insectes de retrouver la ruche en suivant la direction d’un vecteur donné. Au contraire, l’autre se base sur toutes les caractéristiques sensorielles du paysage et se développe au cours des vols précédents. “Les abeilles traitées, en fonction des doses de la substance, sont généralement plus confuses” indique Randolf Menzel au Telegraph. Il développe : “Elles volent assez bien quand il s’agit de suivre la direction d’un vecteur, mais quand elles ont besoin d’utiliser leur mémoire du paysage, alors elles se perdent”. Les conclusions de l’étude indiquent que les abeilles exposées aux pesticides s’affaiblissent à cause de leur incapacité à s’orienter. Elles deviennent ainsi plus vulnérables aux menaces comme les maladies ou le mauvais temps. À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ? En 25 ans, les populations d’abeilles se sont complètement effondrées. Ces insectes pollinisateurs sont pourtant essentiels à la survie des écosystèmes. Actuellement, de nombreuses critiques vont à l’encontre des directives sur les néonicotinoïdes mises en place par l’Union Européenne. Les plus sceptiques s’en prennent également aux chercheurs car les doses de pesticides utilisés dans les tests sont plus élevées que celles auxquelles les insectes sont confrontées dans leur milieu naturel.(Crédit photo : Stéphan Wolf/ Rothamsted Research)Le 29 juillet 2013 à 18:13 • Emmanuel Perrin

He would report directly to Nancy Dubuc, who has been tapped to take over as CEO of Vice Media from Shane Smith, the company’s co-founder.Delport is no stranger to Vice, as Canal Plus (which is owned by Vivendi) and Vice jointly launched Viceland in France in April 2016. He also has a friendly relationship with Smith, who has tried to recruit him to Vice for years, according to an industry source. Stewart Clarke contributed to this report. The company’s London office, which houses both its U.K. and EMEA teams, went through a major shakeup last month, making new hires while at the same time announcing layoffs. The company hired Tamara Howe, a seasoned BBC executive, to oversee content, and Dan Constanda, a former CNN International executive, as the new CFO. The layoffs and buyouts are expected to affect about 4% of the 400-strong London workforce.The creation of a new post overseeing all of Vice’s overseas operations underscores the company’s ambition to bolster its international business and brand around the world. Delport’s appointment to the role would also be part of a new chapter for Vice as it struggles to emerge from a tumultuous period, with Dubuc leading the charge. The company is in the process of revamping its corporate culture after Vice executives on both sides of the Atlantic were hit with sexual harassment allegations. The company says it is introducing harassment training for all staff, and has conducted an anonymous survey of employees in London to uncover any ongoing concerns.Delport, 50, was born in the southern French city of Toulouse. He started out as a journalist and also worked as a TV producer and web entrepreneur. Over the last decade he became a driving force behind both Vivendi and Havas, as well as the right-hand man of Vivendi Chairman Vincent Bolloré.His departure from Vivendi and Havas, where rumors are swirling about his potential exit, would be a setback for both companies. Delport is considered charismatic, highly knowledgeable – even data-obsessed – about a wide range of topics, and visionary. Upon being named president of Vivendi Content in 2015, he created and launched Studio Plus, a service featuring mobile-native short-format series (10 episodes of 10 minutes each), which allowed Vivendi to strike deals with telco services across the globe. He has also worked hard to attract millennial audiences for the company’s main brands, such as Canal Plus, Universal Music Group, Dailymotion and Gameloft.At Havas, Delport oversees all brands, clients and commercial activities as well as all R&I for the company across 126 markets. Working alongside Havas Chairman and CEO Yannick Bolloré, Delport helped the firm adjust to new technology, data and content, and to transition its marketing and advertising activities into digital, which helped Havas gain more than 20 clients globally over the last few years.

If you purchase them, Entrepreneur may get a small share of the revenue from the sale from our commerce partners. Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. As more of the workforce eschews traditional offices in favor of remote work, communication trends have shifted away from audio calls and toward video conferences for two key reasons.The first one is obvious: Technologies have evolved to the point where video calls are clearer and more convenient than ever. But more importantly, video calls have recently been proven to better foster team-wide trust, engagement, and collaboration than their audio-only counterparts, and employers are taking note.Notably, a 2016 survey conducted by the telecommunications provider West Corporation found that 73 percent of workers admitted to being “more attentive and engaged during a video conference call than audio-only calls”, vastly reducing the number of attendees multitasking and otherwise disengaging during meetings.In order to reap all the perks of video conferencing, employers must consider services that offer the most flexibility, reliability and support. While many conferencing solutions charge premium rates for additional services like video conference quality, length and number of participants, RingCentral Meetings is a comprehensive, cloud-based web conferencing tool for businesses that boasts a stacked lineup of features for HD video conferencing, team-wide collaboration and screen-sharing — all for free on one single, streamlined platform.With a RingCentral Meetings account, teams of up to 100 participants can hold an unlimited number of HD video conference calls on any smartphone, tablet, or computer.

Mono Azul Comfort in good conscience
I stayed in the Junior Deluxe Suite next to one of the three pools. It offers two comfortable king beds, a living area with a plush leather sofa and chairs, a private bathroom with a hot shower, cable TV, a fridge and AC. It also has an incredible jungle mural covering one of the very large walls, painted by local artist William Montero. The two walls adjoining the jungle mural are made out of glass, allowing for a view of the actual rainforest and creating the effect of being in the jungle while simultaneously enjoying AC. Nice.To be completely immersed in the jungle sans AC, you can go three miles down the road to Manuel Antonio National Park or take a trip out to Finca Braman, the 70-acre Wildlife Sanctuary and Rehab Center that is also run by the Braman family.The animal sanctuary houses 29 monkeys of various species and one kinkajou. Head out early in the morning for a monkey feeding tour, or go later in the day on an unofficial tour funded by donations.The rescue, rehabilitation and sanctuary for animals depend on donations and volunteers, but donations have dropped off in the past four years alongside the decline in the economy. To try and overcome this, the Braman family expanded the volunteer program in early 2012 with the addition of a volunteer center that can house an additional 17 volunteers. At any given time, there are 3–25 volunteers at the center including experienced veterinarians, students, interns, missionaries, service groups, and primate groups.The family is also in the process of moving one of the rescue centers. Previously, the rescue and rehab center had two locations – one by Hotel Mono Azul and the other out at Finca Braman. By March 15, owner Chip Braman hopes to have the center by Hotel Mono Azul completely transferred out to Finca Braman “to save money and to facilitate better coordination and efficiency of the two centers with each one having a different purpose.”The current rescue center has six animals that are being transferred to the new location, where nine new cages and a clinic are being built. When asked what types of animals are rescued, Chip replied “…from snakes to raccoons to sloths to anteaters to birds to anything. If you call upon us, we will probably rescue it.”Going there: Hotel Mono Azul is located in Manuel Antonio – about a 2.5-hour drive from San José. Take Highway 27 towards Jacó, Quepos, and Puntarenas. Take the exit to Jacó (highway 34), which is immediately after the tollbooth following the town of Orotina. Drive past Playa Jacó until you reach the exit for the town of Quepos. Follow the exit to the right. Drive about 2.5 km and then turn right on the last road leading into the town of Quepos. Continue straight through town about 500 meters and follow the road that leads to Manuel Antonio up the mountain. Hotel Mono Azul is about 1.5 km down the mountain road. The office is located next to the restaurant, before the big blue cow.Public buses also run to Quepos and Manuel Antonio. It’s about a 4 hour ride from the Coca Cola terminal in San José to Quepos. You can get off in Quepos and take a taxi the remaining 1.5 km or take the bus all the way to Manuel Antonio National Park. Quepos is closer to Hotel Mono Azul, but be very careful in Quepos at night.Info about Hotel Mono Azul can be found at www.hotelmonoazul.com. Info about tours, the sanctuary and volunteering can be found at www.kidssavingtherainforest.org and www.volunteer4kstr.org. Facebook Comments For groups, families, budget travelers or anyone seeking a relaxing place to revitalize, the Braman family’s Hotel Mono Azul is an attractive alternative to the expensive, resort-style hotels found throughout Manuel Antonio. Hotel Mono Azul is affordable, has an interesting eclectic layout, a laidback, friendly vibe, and a goal to do a greater good.As you drive down the hilly, winding road from Quepos into Manuel Antonio, about four kilometers before Manuel Antonio National Park, you will notice the signature Hotel Mono Azul name spelled out in rocks on the side of the road. Look to the left, look to the right. The hotel surrounds the street with rooms and pools on either side.The 32 units are adorned in several styles, the most basic of which includes a ceiling fan, a private bathroom with a hot shower, free WIFI, and a single, double or queen bed. Deluxe rooms have AC, cable TV, a private bathroom with a hot shower, a patio and a combination of two beds. The Villas and Tower accommodations are spacious with all the previously mentioned amenities, and are designed for larger groups or families. No related posts.

In the fourth quarter of last year, the company reported a net income of just $11.1 million, or 7 cents per share. Early in the year, Flagstar recorded a net loss of $78.9 million for Q1 2014.The first quarter of 2015 also brought in a 15 percent increase in revenue and a 2 percent decline in operating expenses when compared to 2014, and interest-earning assets rose 8 percent over the last quarter. Warehouse lending also saw an increase of 15 percent since 2014.These new numbers reveal an upward trend for Troy, Michigan-based Flagstar, one that the company’s executives attribute to improved sales margins, lowered risk, higher-quality loans and internal changes within the originations process.”Our first quarter results reflect our significant efforts to strengthen our core business and improve financial performance,” said Alessandro P. DiNello, president and chief executive officer of Flagstar Bancorp. “Mortgage volumes increased during the first quarter, providing a favorable tailwind, but most of our revenue growth was due to improved gain on sale margins in part from fundamental changes to optimize our mortgage originations business. In addition to improving our top- and bottom-line results, we also grew our balance sheet and executed on our strategic priority to reduce risk by continuing to sell lower quality loans. Nonperforming loans are now well below $100 million, a level Flagstar has not seen since 2006.But despite the forward movement, the work is not done, according to DiNello. The company will continue to strengthen its franchises and warehouse lending branches.”We are encouraged by our progress, especially in controlling expenses given this quarter’s higher business levels,” DiNello said. “We remain focused on continuing our strong results by growing our community banking franchise in Michigan and expanding our national warehouse lending business, which led our loan growth this quarter. Last quarter, we pointed to the work done the previous two years to position the Company for going-forward success. We believe this quarter delivers on our promise to continue to build on this foundation.”See the full earnings report at Flagstar.com. Flagstar Reports Jump in Profits for Q1 Share
