StanChart to hit record profit as bad loans fall

first_img whatsapp whatsapp Tags: NULL StanChart to hit record profit as bad loans fall Standard Chartered that it expects to post record income and profit for this year, helped by falling loan impairments and growth in consumer banking.Income in the second half of 2010 was expected to clock in at levels similar to the first six months, the bank said in an update posted on the Hong Kong stock exchange website, before its regular year-end briefing later in the day.“The group has continued to perform well, consistent with our expectations and guidance,” the bank said in the statement. “Both businesses have performed well, with client income growth in wholesale banking very good and income in consumer banking showing good levels of growth.”The bank’s Hong Kong-listed shares were up 3.8 per cent before it gave the update, but eased slightly after the midday trading break.Standard Chartered reported a first-half profit of $3.12bn (£1.97bn) as bad debts more than halved and its key Asian markets performed better than those in the West.The fall in loan impairments was likely to have extended into the second half of this year, the bank said in a statement, and it expected bad loans to be significantly lower in 2010 compared with the previous year.StanChart has been expanding aggressively in the wholesale and consumer banking areas, snagging several high-profile deals including as lead underwriter for McDonald’s Corp’s landmark 200 million yuan bond in Hong Kong earlier this year.Cost growth would exceed income growth in the full year as a result of these new businesses, the bank said, adding that it also saw margin pressure from increased compliance costs and higher staff expenses.Net interest margins were set to fall from 2009 due to pressure on asset margins across a number of different countries, it added.Standard Chartered raised $5.3bn from a rights issue in October, which it said would bolster its finances ahead of new capital rules and provide firepower to take advantage of new opportunities.

Offshore growth takes Swedish revenue to SEK23.4bn in 2018

first_img22nd February 2019 | By contenteditor Tags: Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Race Track and Racino Casino & games AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter The Swedish gambling market saw revenue grow 1.5% in 2018, driven by growth in regulated and offshore igaming. Total revenue increased to SEK23.4bn (£1.9bn/€2.2bn/$2.5bn), with a 2.3% year-on-year decline in regulated market revenue to SEK16.7bn. The Swedish gambling market saw revenue grow 1.5% in 2018, driven by growth in regulated and offshore igaming.Total revenue increased to SEK23.4bn (£1.9bn/€2.2bn/$2.5bn), with a 2.3% year-on-year decline in regulated market revenue to SEK16.7bn.This was offset by a 12.4% increase from unlicensed operators targeting the market, with these companies seeing revenue for the year rising to SEK6.7bn. The country’s gaming regulator Spelinspektionen noted that a significant number of these offshore operators had been awarded licences for the country’s re-regulated igaming market, which opened on January 1, 2019.Focusing on the regulated market, Svenska Spel accounted for more than half of total revenue, despite its full-year figure of SEK8.8bn representing a 2.2% decline from 2017. This decline was due to a 9.7% drop in land-based gaming revenue, which fell to SEK6.1bn, though the state-owned operator’s online offering grew 20.0% to SEK2.7bn for the year.AB Trav och Galopp (ATG), which held the monopoly on horse race betting before the market was re-regulated, saw revenue fall 1.5% year-on-year to SEK4.1bn. This was down to a 10.7% decline in land-based revenue, to SEK1.6bn, with the online business up 5.2% at SEK2.5bn.The market’s third-largest business was the Swedish Postcode Lottery, though it reported a 2.7% dip in revenue to SEK2.0bn for 2018. Land-based sales were down 2.3% to SEK2.0bn, with the online offering reporting a 25.7% decline to just SEK28m. All regulated offerings saw revenue decline from the third quarter of the year, though Folkspel did report a 3% increase in the final quarter, albeit from a low base. The lottery’s revenue for the year amounted to SEK673m.The biggest decline in the year was reported by the lottery operated by the Swedish temperance movement IOGT-NTO, which saw revenue fall 23.7% year-on-year to SEK224m.The trend reported by Spelinspektionen in recent years, of players shifting away from land-based gaming to online, continued in 2018. Online gaming accounted for 52% of total market revenue – including offshore sites – which represented a 12.2% year-on-year increase, while land-based gaming fell 7.9%.Online casino was the strongest performer, with revenue up 13.7% for the year, followed by online wagering, which was up 11.5%.The figures were the last to cover the Swedish market before regulation, which also saw the country’s regulator Lotteriinspektionen rebranded as Spelinspektionen.

first_img Royston Wild | Thursday, 23rd July, 2020 | More on: ^FTSE I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.

Playing stock market crashesIt’s understandable that investors remain nervous. But does the threat of a second market crash mean that you and I should stop buying UK shares? I certainly don’t think so. Instead, I reckon another market crash could provide a fresh opportunity to load up on brilliant stocks at rock-bottom prices.Carrying out diligent research to find the best UK shares out there is critical. Timing your trades is another important part of building a winning stocks portfolio. Buying in at low prices allows you to maximise the returns you make on your purchases. And a stock market crash allows you to buy top quality stocks for next-to-nothing as panicked investors usually sell the cream of the crop along with the genuine duds.A great time to buy UK sharesIndeed, there remain so many quality UK shares trading too cheaply following the stock market crash in March. We spend a lot of time here at The Motley Fool identifying these blue-chip bargains for you. And you’ll be able to pick them up at even lower prices in the event of another market crash.It’s important to remember that share investors make their fortunes over a number of years. And that stock market crashes, while uncomfortable, only tend to have a superficial impact on long-term returns. This is why I plan to continue buying UK shares for my own personal ISA today.

On the less positive side, however, indices like the FTSE 100 have failed to kick on over the past couple of months. Market tensions remain extremely high and many investors, fearful of another stock market crash, remain reluctant to pile into UK shares.There are a number of good reasons why you and I should expect another stock market crash. These include, but are by no means, exclusive to:5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Negative news flow concerning Covid-19. Market confidence has slumped in recent hours after President Trump declared that the coronavirus crisis could “get worse before it gets better.” Setbacks concerning development of a Covid-19 vaccine could also cause another market crash.Growing signs of a no-deal Brexit. Many cyclical UK shares that are dependent on a strong domestic economy could be sold off sharply if a disorderly withdrawal from the European Union occurs. And the signs are so far not encouraging. The Telegraph reports that government ministers have all but abandoned hope of a deal being agreed.Signs of deteriorating relations between the West and China. The frosty alliance between Washington and Beijing has been worsened by the Covid-19 crisis. Ongoing clashes between pro-democracy protestors and security services in Hong Kong have muddied the waters even further. Consequently, hopes of a long-lasting trade truce between the countries are looking shakier than they did at the end of 2019.

It is the call of Christ that all may be one so that the world may see. I will therefore be taking back with me the warmth of your hospitality and also, after our discussions today and tomorrow, a renewed and refreshed focus for greater unity and closer fellowship. We want to carry the cross of our divisions, but be filled with the hope and joy that comes from the grace and the love of Jesus.”Archbishop Justin traveled to Istanbul on Monday at the invitation of Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, who, as Archbishop of Constantinople and New Rome, occupies the First Throne of the Orthodox Christian Church.His visit included an official reception in the Chamber of the Throne, a discussion with the Synodical Committee for Inter-Christian Affairs, and a visit to the Holy Theological School of Halki.Archbishop Justin told Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew it would be a privilege to welcome him to London in 2015.Photos of the visit can be downloaded at the link below. Credit: Mr Nikolaos Maginashttp://www.flickr.com/photos/lambethpalace/11948971805/Common statement issued by the Archbishop of Canterbury and His-All Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew:His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and His Grace the Most Revd and Rt Honorable Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury met at the Phanar, Istanbul from 13th-14th January, 2014, for their first meeting since the Most Revd Justin Welby was enthroned as the Archbishop of Canterbury about one year ago. The meeting took place in an atmosphere of friendship and warmth. Both leaders agreed to focus on the continuation of close relations, the importance of the ongoing theological dialogue, and the commitment of the Anglican Communion and the Orthodox Church to greater cooperation for a common witness in an increasingly secular and pluralistic world, particularly in Europe. They expressed concern for the injustice in many parts of the world and prayed especially for the poor, the oppressed, and those caught in war, for peace and justice in the entire world, particularly in the Middle East, but also in other parts of the globe, and for ourselves to be sustained by the help and joy of Jesus Christ. They further agreed to explore avenues for raising greater awareness on environmental issues as well as upholding Christian values of human dignity and religious rights.Welcome by His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew to His Grace Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury (Phanar, 13 January 2014)Your Grace Archbishop Justin, Beloved Brother in Christ:‘Christ is in our midst!  He is and shall be!’It gives us the greatest joy to welcome Your Grace as the honoured guest of the Ecumenical Throne, on this your first pilgrimage to the Patriarchate.  We hope that Your Grace will be very happy during your time in Constantinople, and that your visit will strengthen the bond of mutual love that exists between our two Churches, the Orthodox and the Anglican.The friendship between our Churches is not new, but has deep roots in past history.  As long ago as the early 17th century Cyril Lukaris, Patriarch first of Alexandria and then of Constantinople, had many contacts with the English Church and State.  As a token of his esteem, he sent to King James I the Codex Alexandrinus, one of the three most ancient manuscripts of the Greek Bible, which is now one of the greatest treasures at the British Library in London.  Personal contacts between our two communions have been promoted more recently by the Eastern Church Association, founded in 1864 – now known as the Anglican and Eastern Churches Association – and by the Fellowship of St Alban and St Sergius, founded in 1928.  These two societies have fostered countless ecumenical friendships; and without such ecumenical friendships, on the direct and personal level, we cannot hope to build a firm foundation for Christian unity.Since 1973, as Your Grace will be well aware, there has been an official dialogue, world-wide in scope, between our two ecclesial families.  The International Commission for Anglican-Orthodox Theological Dialogue has so far produced three weighty reports: the Moscow Agreed Statement (1976), the Dublin Agreed Statement (1984), and most recently the very detailed Cyprus Agreed Statement (2006), entitled ‘The Church of the Triune God’.  The International Commission is now preparing a fourth agreed statement on the Christian understanding of the human person.  This will consider, among other topics, the Christian teaching on marriage, and also our human responsibility for the environment, a matter to which we personally, throughout our time as Patriarch, have always attached particular importance.  We are fully confident that, under the inspiration of Your Grace, our Anglican-Orthodox dialogue will continue to flourish and to make positive progress.In its formal title, this dialogue is entitled ‘theological’.  But it is of course essential that our theology should always be a living theology.  Doctrinal discussion must never be separated from a practical interest in social and philanthropic issues.  At this present moment, as Anglicans and Orthodox, we share in particular a joint concern for the situation of Christians in the Middle East, who are confronting increasing problems and, in many places, are undergoing a veritable persecution.In the past, the rapprochement between our two Churches has been greatly assisted by the exchange of students, and we trust that this will continue.  Our Theological School at Halki used to offer scholarships to Anglicans, and when it is reopened – as will happen in the near future (so it may be hoped) – we shall certainly wish to revive this tradition.  These exchange students have frequently gone on to become leaders in their respective Churches, and their early inter-Church experience has enabled them to further the cause of Christian unity in highly constructive ways.Dear Archbishop Justin: during the course of the visit of Your Grace we shall have the opportunity to speak further about these and other subjects.  It is a great joy to us that, so soon after your elevation to Canterbury, Your Grace has found it possible to visit the sacred centre of Orthodoxy, the Ecumenical Patriarchate.  Indeed Your Grace is more than welcome: please feel entirely at home.  From our encounter during these two days, may great benefit come to our Churches.  In that spirit we conclude with words from the Divine Liturgy, proclaimed immediately before the recitation of the Creed: ‘Let us love one another, that with one mind we may confess the Trinity one in essence and undivided.’Archbishop of Canterbury’s response to welcome message by the Ecumenical Patriarch:Your All-Holiness, Beloved Brother in Christ,I thank you most warmly for your welcome and greetings and at the outset bring the greetings from the Anglican Communion and the Church of England. I realise that this is an initial and very short visit, but it is a vital opportunity so soon after my enthronement for us to be able to share and be strengthened through this more personal visit. Your All Holiness has once mentioned that in a world “becoming smaller and smaller distance-wise, the need for personal communication has become imperative.” I see my short visit in that light. To be with you in this holy and historic place is indeed a great privilege. The warmth of your welcome adds to my deep sense of privilege at meeting you.This city has left its mark in a diversity of ways upon Christianity as a whole. It was from this city that manuscripts of the Bible in the original languages were received in the West. This city (also renowned as the New Rome) is your seat as the Ecumenical Patriarch, and we continue to benefit from the insight of what the secular and Christian leadership through this link has taught the world church about the relationship between Christianity and the application of worldly power over the years. Your history is more and more important in the increasing confrontations of the world in which religion is used as a pretext for violence that in reality comes from greed and the pride of human beings.You have demonstrated over the centuries the martyrdom to which we are called in scripture, the call to witness in word and life, a call more important than life itself. The cost of that martyrdom is seen in so many places today. Closest to here we remember and seek the mercy of Christ and intercession of the Blessed Mother on Syria, especially for His Eminence Metropolitan Yohanna Ibrahim of Aleppo of the Syrian Patriarchate of Antioch, and His Eminence Metropolitan Boulos Yazigi of Aleppo and Alexandrette of the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch, for whom we pray daily. You yourself have been an example of peace and reconciliation, politically, with the natural world and in your historic visit for the installation of His Holiness Pope Francis I.Istanbul is at the crossroads between Europe and Asia. It is the place where two great faiths meet. Its significance for trade is enormous and continues to remind us of Turkey’s importance as an industrial and commercial nation. Commerce and trade may be objects of greed, but may in the Grace of God open the way to dialogue between nations.Your All Holiness, my distinguished predecessors, Archbishop Robert Runcie in 1982, Archbishop George Carey in 1992 and Archbishop Rowan Williams in 2003 all visited this holy place and have been blessed by the encounter and engagement. As Archbishop Rowan has emphasised during his last visit, our roots go back to the Christian missions of the days of Constantine. He furthermore expressed a particular concern for Eastern and Western traditions of the Church to be reconciled.Such reconciliation is also very dear to my heart and is one of my key priorities. It is the call of Christ that all may be one so that the world may see. I will therefore be taking back with me the warmth of your hospitality and also, after our discussions today and tomorrow, a renewed and refreshed focus for greater unity and closer fellowship. We want to carry the cross of our divisions, but be filled with the hope and joy that comes from the grace and the love of Jesus.This can be further developed through the ongoing conversations in the International Commission for Anglican Orthodox Theological Dialogue and through the more informal talks that happen. I can assure you that I will provide the necessary encouragement for our ecumenical journey together.During the last years we have seen the world changing in a diversity of ways. We have had an economic crisis through a banking system which had lost its way, seeking its own good at the expense of nations and their peoples. There is conflict in many regions of the world, acute poverty, unemployment and an influx of oppressed people driven away from their own countries and seeking refuge elsewhere. In Southern Europe terrible suffering has seized the people, most especially the poor for whom we weep and cry to God. The churches are rising to the challenge, empowered by the Holy Spirit and filled with his compassion. Hence in standing with the poor in love, we may work together. How can we strengthen and help each other bear one another’s burdens?Your Holiness, I am aware that you are known as the ‘Green Patriarch’. We are grateful for your energy and efforts to raise awareness for preserving and protecting our environment. You have been the leading voice expressing concerns and have initiated a number of seminars and dialogues, also in co-sponsorship with His Royal Highness Prince Philip, to mobilise spiritual and moral forces to achieve harmony between humanity and nature. This third millennium has made us realise that environmental issues require our day to day attention. We are witnesses to global calamities. The Christian Orthodox theological understanding points us all to our natural environment as part of Creation and characterised by sacredness. This is a responsibility for all of us and your contributions will enable us to speak out more intentionally on environmental issues at an individual, national and international level. Abuse and destruction of the environment denies the grace of God. Economic crises tempt governments and people to look to the short term and forget the needs of the generation to come.Finally, it is clear to me that our theological dialogues today do face new challenges and I do recognise that there are also some issues that raise difficulties, but I take courage from your words to one of my predecessors:In spite of such obstacles, we cannot allow ourselves to congeal the love between us which is also manifested in dialogue so “let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us” with the good hope that the Lord of powers and mercy “will not let us be tested beyond our strength, but with the testing he will also provide the way out so that we may be able to endure it” (1Cor. 10:13). Your All Holiness, this is a vital visit for me and it would be my privilege to be able to welcome you in 2015 to London. I look forward to the remaining time with you and the Patriarchate. There is much that unites us and as we continue to strengthen the bonds of friendship our understanding of each other’s traditions will grow. It is therefore in this spirit that I greet you and ask for your prayers for our ministry.

Houston-area residents hoping for FEMA aid after catastrophic storms

first_img The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector Smithfield, NC [Episcopal Diocese of Texas] Although most of the water has receded, residents in Montgomery County are now facing a harsh reality after historic floods that devastated the Greater Houston area last week—many have uninhabitable homes and others have no federal aid from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.More than 13 inches of rain fell in six hours and in some locations more than 16 inches of rain. More than seven deaths were confirmed during the flooding in mid April. Saturated ground means that continuing rain threatens more flooding in many parts of the several county area. Diocesan officials went immediately sent spiritual care teams into affected areas to visit with victims and hand out gift cards. Archdeacon Russ Oechsel and the Rev. Canon Michael Bamberger, a disaster preparedness coordinator with Episcopal Relief & Development continue to assess needs and will work on a long term plan to help with recovery efforts.Streets in the Timber Lakes and Timber Ridge subdivisions near The Woodlands resemble a disaster zone with mattresses, furniture and sheetrock piled outside of homes.The smell of mold permeates the air up and down the streets and traces of the high water level are still evident on the exterior of homes—for some residences it was waist high.The heavy rains and floods affected approximately 280 residences in Montgomery County. President Barak Obama issued a disaster declaration for Harris, Grimes, Parker and Fayette counties making residents eligible for FEMA assistance but Montgomery County, where many affected homes are located, wasn’t included on this list.Trinity, The Woodlands and other churches throughout the Diocese of Texas are working with Episcopal Relief and Development to develop a long-term recovery program as well as raising awareness of those who need help in Montgomery County.Although Montgomery County was included in Governor Greg Abbott’s state declaration as a disaster area, Bamberger, who also serves rector of Ascension in Sierra Madre, California, believes residents still have a chance to be included in FEMA’s declaration through advocacy.“Declarations get amended all the time … When they hear from multiple residents who are affected and who have called FEMA and registered, that’s going to put more pressure on them,” Bamberger said. “Find out who you know at the county level and start stamping your feet,” he added.Carlos Rincón Gallardo lost just about everything from his Timber Lakes subdivision home. The night of the storm, he went back to bed when the power went out, only to wake with water rising in his home.“We lost the power … so I decided to go back to bed,” Gallardo said. “When I touched the floor it was wet. I woke up my wife, everybody. I managed to get the cars out. No more than six minutes passed and the water came up to here (points to his waist). I have a baby. When I came out of my house, I was holding the baby (he held his arms up in the air) and it was still raining on us. We only managed to save the cars and that’s it.”Despite losing almost everything after being flooded three times, Gallardo claims he is blessed, and had advice to other victims.“Get insurance through FEMA if you know ahead of time you are living in an area prone to flooding. Or don’t stay in a house that could flood. It is better to live in another place. It’s not worth it to lose it all just to live in that house,” Gallardo warned.Others are also partnering with Trinity to help. Missy Herndon, president and CEO of Interfaith of The Woodlands and of Interfaith Community Clinic said the organization’s goal is to assess the needs then provide the help.“We go door-to-door and drop off information about our organization to let people know what we do,” Herndon says. “So far we have placed 17 people into shelters and have helped 30 families.”Interfaith of The Woodlands is holding a “Shopping Day” at the South County Community Center to give victims an opportunity to pick up whatever they might need: diapers, clothing, towels and housewares. The event will take place Friday, April 29 from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.Most Episcopal churches in the flooded areas fared well in the storm, although some had water seepage and roof damage. One clergy person had to be rescued by kayak at 4 a.m. and the rectory was flooded. Other churches responded quickly to parishioners who needed help and continue to help others as needs are shared. See previous story here.The Episcopal Diocese of Texas has set up a donation account to help with needs as they are assessed.St. Mary’s, Cypress is organizing work days for people of all ages to help their neighbors by clearing debris, moving furniture, making sandwiches, providing assistance, and, most of all, prayer and a safe place for all to be welcomed. They will also be handing out gift cards from Wal-Mart.

Petition protests Biden nomination of neocon Nuland

first_imgThose who feel relief that #45 appears to be exiting from his role as white supremacist in chief must stay aware that U.S. imperialist aggression is bipartisan, supported by both big bourgeois parties. By appointing Victoria Nuland Undersecretary of State, Joe Biden already indicated he has no intention of altering his decades-long support for all U.S. wars. The following World BEYOND War petition, signed by 25 organizations, outlines Nuland’s history and calls on Biden to withdraw her nomination. Stop U.S. aggression no matter who’s in the White House! (See worldbeyondwar.org/nuland/)By World BEYOND WarJan. 11–Victoria Nuland, former foreign policy adviser to then-Vice President Dick Cheney, should not be nominated for Undersecretary of State and if nominated should be rejected by the Senate.Nuland played a key role in facilitating a coup in Ukraine that created a civil war costing 10,000 lives and displacing over a million people. She played a key role in arming Ukraine as well. She advocates radically increased military spending, NATO expansion, hostility toward Russia and efforts to overthrow the Russian government.New York protest against Ukraine right-wing coup, Feb. 28, 2014.The United States invested $5 billion in shaping Ukrainian politics, including overthrowing a democratically elected president who had refused to join NATO.Then-Assistant Secretary of State Nuland is on video talking about the U.S. investment and on audiotape planning to install Ukraine’s next leader, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, who was subsequently installed.The Maidan protests, at which Nuland handed out cookies to protesters, were violently escalated by neo-Nazis and by snipers who opened fire on police. When Poland, Germany and France negotiated a deal for the Maidan demands and an early election, neo-Nazis instead attacked the government and took over. The U.S. State Department immediately recognized the coup government, and Arseniy Yatsenyuk was installed as Prime Minister.Nuland has worked with the openly pro-Nazi Svoboda Party in Ukraine. She was long a leading proponent of arming Ukraine. She was also an advocate for removing from office the prosecutor general of Ukraine, whom then-Vice President Joe Biden pushed the president to remove.Nuland wrote this past year: “The challenge for the United States in 2021 will be to lead the democracies of the world in crafting a more effective approach to Russia — one that builds on their strengths and puts stress on Putin where he is vulnerable, including among his own citizens.”She added: “. . . Moscow should also see that Washington and its allies are taking concrete steps to shore up their security and raise the cost of Russian confrontation and militarization. That includes maintaining robust defense budgets, continuing to modernize U.S. and allied nuclear weapons systems, and deploying new conventional missiles and missile defenses, . . . establish permanent bases along NATO’s eastern border and increase the pace and visibility of joint training exercises.”The United States walked out of the ABM Treaty and later the INF Treaty, began putting missiles into Romania and Poland, expanded NATO to Russia’s border, facilitated a coup in Ukraine, began arming Ukraine and started holding massive war rehearsal exercises in Eastern Europe. But to read Victoria Nuland’s account, Russia is simply an irrationally evil and aggressive force that must be countered by yet more military spending, bases and hostility. Some U.S. military officials say this demonizing of Russia is all about weapons profits and bureaucratic power, no more fact-based than the Steele Dossier that was given to the FBI by Victoria Nuland.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
