Deutsche Bank shares plummet to record low

Follow The Money


Shares in Germany’s largest bank have hit rock bottom on Monday as Chancellor Angela Merkel reportedly refused to provide Deutsche Bank state aid in its legal battle with the United States Department of Justice (DoJ).

Deutsche shares fell as much as six percent to €10.67 in early Monday trading, the worst performance since 1992.

The bank has lost over 52 percent of its value since January and over 56 percent in the last twelve months. Earnings per share fell as much as €6.

The collapse has been prompted by a report in the German magazine Focus that said Chancellor Angela Merkel has ruled out any state assistance for the bank next year.

Merkel also declined to provide help to Deutsche Bank in its legal battle with the DoJ. The Frankfurt-based lender may be fined up to $14 billion over its mortgage-backed securities business before the 2008 global crisis, the magazine…

Mike Buchanan will stand against Theresa May MP, prime minister, at the 2020 general election

Justice for Men & Boys

Following a stretegic review of our options for the 2020 general election, we’ve adopted a new strategy, the elements of which will be revealed in due course.

The first element is that I’ll be standing against Theresa May MP, prime minister, in her Maidenhead constituency, which she has represented since its creation in 1997. She is, of course, a self-declared feminist – infamously wearing a Fawcett Society T-shirt bearing the words, ‘This is what a feminist looks like’, when in opposition – and she heads a deeply anti-male (and socially unconservative) Conservative government, as anti-male as any of its Labour predecessors. The administration is doing nothing, for example, about the decades-old assaults on the nuclear family, and the denial of access after family breakdowns of children, fathers, and paternal grandparents.

The Maidenhead Advertiser has just exclusively broken the story, here. It’s already attracted one snarky comment, to…

No more human rights? Wait. No more lawyers??

UK Human Rights Blog

415h7k2lel-_sx329_bo1204203200_Not only is God dead, says Israeli professor Yuval Noah Hariri, but humanism is on its way out, along with its paraphernalia of human rights instruments and lawyers for their implementation and enforcement. Whilst they and we argue about equality, racism, feminism, discrimination and all the other shibboleths of the humanist era, silicon-based algorithms are quietly taking over the world.

His new book, Homo Deus, is the sequel to Homo Sapiens, reviewed on the UKHRB last year. Sapiens was “a brief history of mankind”, encompassing some seventy thousand years. Homo Deus the future of humankind and whether we are going to survive in our present form, not even for another a thousand years, but for a mere 200 years, given the rise of huge new forces of technology, of data, and of the potential of permissive rather than merely preventative medicine.

We are suddenly showing unprecedented interest in the fate…

Consecutive Sentence Likely Excessive in Postdivorce Criminal Contempt Case in Murfreesboro, TN: Burris v. Burris

Herston on Tennessee Family Law

knoxville divorceFacts: Father and Mother, the parents of three children, were divorced in 2008. Father was named the primary residential parent, and Mother was ordered to pay child support. Mother was also ordered to pay one-half of of the children’s uncovered medical expenses.

Kidney Divorce Wait ~ What!

Custody Calculations 702-675-5120

Boy meets girl. Boy marries girl. Girl gives boy a kidney. Boy leaves girl and — surprise, surprise — girl wants kidney back.

Samantha Lamb, a 41-year-old mother of one, underwent the kidney transplant operation for her husband, Andy, back in October 2009. She even lost weight to prepare for the surgery, which was documented by the BBC.

But a few years after the life-saving procedure, Samantha learned that Andy was leaving her — and now she says she wants the kidney back. (The angry wife told the paper she believes her husband cheated on her, which Andy vehemently denies.)

“I can’t ­believe he now has a second chance to live to see his grandchildren grow up,” Lamb told the paper. “I would definitely go through the operation again –- but I wouldn’t give the kidney to him. I hate him. If I could I’d take…
