Nagasaki Mayor Questions Policy On A-bomb Day - Yahoo News

"I strongly request that the Japanese government take note celebs of the situation news and carefully listen to the voices of distress and concerns." Polls show more than half of respondents are opposed to the decision, mainly because of sensitivity over Japan's wartime past and devastation at home. Representing the Nagasaki survivors, Miyako Jodai, 75, said that Abe's government was not living up to expectations. Jodai, a retired teacher who was exposed to radiation just 2.4 kilometers (1.5 miles) from ground zero, said that the defense policy that puts more weight on military power was "outrageous" and a shift away from pacifism. "Please stand by our commitment to peace. Please do not forget the sufferings of the atomic bombing survivors," Jodai said at the ceremony. The number of surviving victims, known as "hibakusha," was just more than 190,000 this year across Japan. Their average age is 79. In Nagasaki, 3,355 survivors died over the past year, while 5,507 passed away in Hiroshima.

Deutsche Bank Seeks Compensation From Ex-ceo In Kirch Case: Newspaper - Yahoo News

Deutsche needs to seek compensation from Breuer before so-called directors and officers' liability insurance can play a role in covering some of the settlement charges, the paper said. In February, Deutsche Bank ended a 12-year battle with the heirs of media mogul Leo Kirch, closing one of Germany's most acrimonious corporate disputes in a deal costing the country's largest lender about 925 million euros ($1.24 billion). Kirch, who died in 2011, blamed the bank for his group's demise. Kirch had claimed that ex-Deutsche chief executive and later chairman Breuer triggered his media group's downfall by questioning its creditworthiness in a 2002 television interview. Kirch sought for years to recoup about 2 billion euros in damages. In 2002, while he was participating in the World Economic Forum at New York's Waldorf-Astoria hotel, Breuer appeared to raise questions about Kirch Group's creditworthiness during a TV interview. Breuer was also then chairman of Germany's private-sector bank association.

They their website worked together for 10 years, until Posnack left Frankfurt-based Deutsche Bank in 2008. He was super chatty, on the phone 24 hours a day, often two phones to his ear, Bawa said. He loved it. He was made for this. They were among three convertible bond salesmen hired by Deutsche Bank from Belgium s KBC Bancassurance Holding NV in 2001, when convertibles -- bonds that can be converted to common stock -- were a fast-growing asset class.
