No InstallTaonga: The Island Farm whatsapp Show Comments ▼ THE OFFICE of Fair Trading (OFT) said yesterday that smaller retail banks face significant challenges when trying to entice customers away from the high street giants. Customers are reluctant to switch banks and remain loyal to existing brands, the watchdog said in a research paper published yesterday. Smaller banks also complained of difficulties in getting approval from the Financial Services Authority, and of higher capital requirements hitting new entrants disproportionately. “A number of firms have recently entered the market, and more are expected to follow,” said OFT executive director for goods, services and mergers Clive Maxwell, in a nod to the newly-opened Metro Bank.“While we found few barriers to setting up, new firms trying to grow in this market face difficulties due to customers’ low levels of switching, loyalty to incumbent providers, and attachment to a local branch.” The OFT also warned that a lack of inter-bank lending following the financial crisis could also hinder the growth of new banking groups. The OFT’s review will be submitted to the Independent Commission on Banking, which was set up by the new government in June to look at competition and stability in the banking market. last_img read more

The depiction of Floyd is based on a photo, and below his face are the words “I can breathe now.”Goldman told the St. Paul Pioneer Press that she was hesitant to add those words, which were suggested by a local resident, because she didn’t want to put words in Floyd’s mouth.“We wanted to be certain that it felt appropriate,” Goldman told the Pioneer Press. “We didn’t have any black artists in the group, and we wanted to make sure the community felt like that statement was representative.”Another resident conducted an informal poll of people in the neighborhood, and they were overwhelmingly supportive of adding that phrase, Goldman said. Even so, the artists asked someone from the local community, not the artists, to paint those letters as the mural’s final touch last week.“We wanted to make sure the community had the final word,” Herrera said.The mural memorializing George Floyd and other black victims of police violence is located near the site in Minneapolis where Floyd died May 25 while being taken into police custody. Photo: Paul Lebens-EnglundThe intersection has been the site of peaceful protests and vigils for Floyd, with his faced calmly fixed in the mural as a backdrop. On June 1, Floyd’s brother, Terrence Floyd, visited the scene and took a moment to view the mural up close, along with the other memorials.

Photo: Xena Goldman[Episcopal News Service] A mural honoring George Floyd near where he died May 25 has become a prominent visual landmark among the sprawling makeshift memorials at East 38th Street and Chicago Avenue in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Floyd’s larger-than-life face radiates from a fiery sunflower on a blue background, and his name is painted in bold yellow letters across the width of the mural on the outside wall of the Cup Foods grocery.The names of other black victims of police violence in the United States are scrawled in white behind Floyd on the sunflower’s black center. Floyd, 46, joined their tragic ranks after Minneapolis police pinned him to the ground for nearly nine minutes, with one officer pressing his knee into Floyd’s neck as he struggled to repeat his last words: “I can’t breathe.”Cadex Herrera, 45, is a member of St. John in the Wilderness Episcopal Church in White Bear Lake, Minnesota. Photo: Xena GoldmanOne of the mural’s lead artists, Cadex Herrera, is an Episcopalian from White Bear Lake, Minnesota, who immigrated to the United States from Belize when he was 19. Herrera works as an elementary school behavioral specialist who creates art on the side, and he told Episcopal News Service in a phone interview that he specializes in social justice art.“That is my passion,” Herrera said. He was honored to be able to help create the Floyd mural.Herrera, 45, attends St. John in the Wilderness Episcopal Church in White Bear Lake with his wife, Karen Herrera, who serves as junior warden. They have three sons, ages 16, 14 and 12.They started attending Episcopal worship services more than a decade ago after becoming disaffected with the Roman Catholic Church. “We thought The Episcopal Church was a good match for our family,” Herrera said.He said he was scheduled to lead a workshop at St. John in the Wilderness this summer, to show participants how they can use their creative talents to speak out on social justice issues, but that event has been canceled along with in-person worship at the church because of the coronavirus pandemic.Much of his work focuses on various social issues, such as immigration and the environment, and he hopes his art will “promote and elevate those causes.” His artworks range from chalk on paper to watercolor on glass. Most are smaller-scale works that he then shares on his social media accounts. Though some people ask to purchase artworks, he doesn’t promote them for sale, and he said he never takes money for paintings of social justice leaders and other portraits.“I do not want to profit from their likeness,” he said. “I just do it to do it and get the word across.”He had never been involved in a mural before but knew fellow artist Xena Goldman through serving together with a Latino community organization called CLUES. After Floyd’s killing sparked outrage in Minnesota’s Twin Cities, Goldman contacted Herrera and asked if he wanted to help conceive of a memorial mural. Herrera readily volunteered, along with a third artist, Greta McLain.Herrera said he, too, was deeply moved by the death of Floyd, an unarmed black man, at the hands of police. “I was caught up in the moment, angry about what was happening.”The artists got together and started sharing ideas, with Herrera contributing much of what became the mural’s background.“The sunflower represents longevity and loyalty,” Herrera said. “I wanted to use that also because it represents life.” The names of other victims of police violence – Tamir Rice, Philando Castile, Freddie Gray, Michael Brown, Breonna Taylor, to name a few – were positioned as the sunflower’s seeds.“They were seeds that never got to be flowers themselves,” Herrera said.

Villa Esperanza Services Celebrates Launch of Capital Campaign

first_img First Heatwave Expected Next Week 21 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Local philanthropic leaders, including Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard, celebrated the launch of Villa Esperanza Services’ Capital Campaign. The mid-day celebration with more than 50 guests in attendance was held at a private club and was sponsored by Wells Fargo. “For the past 21 years Wells Fargo executives have served on Villa Esperanza Services’ board of directors. Since 1993 devoted Wells Fargo team members such as current director of the board Joe DeFur and former board member Rich Byrd have lead the charge in bringing hope to families in Southern California,” said Jonathan Weedman, head of the Wells Fargo Foundation in Los Angeles.“Due to the urgent need in our community, and as a result of the passion and confidence we have in the mission of Villa Esperanza Services, Wells Fargo has committed to this first phase of the Capital Campaign with a gift of one million dollars,” said Lisa Stevens, Wells Fargo Pacific Midwest Bank Executive. Stevens also recognized The Ayrshire Foundation for leading the way with the first one million dollar gift to the campaign.Following Wells Fargo’s opening remarks guests heard from Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard, Villa Esperanza Services CEO, Kelly White, and Villa Esperanza Services board member and campaign co-chair Jim McDermott, but it was, board member and father, Jay Henneberry, whose personal family story emotionally moved all those in attendance.“To really understand the impact of Villa Esperanza Services I want to share with you what my son Jamie was like before he came to Villa for his education. Jamie was born with a rare genetic disorder, and at the time of his birth the doctor, in words I’ll never forget, told us that his condition was quote ‘incompatible with human life and we could take him home but he would be dead within a few months.’” Henneberry went on to say, “Villa Esperanza welcomed us when no one else would. They did a phenomenal job with our son, well beyond my expectations and they continue to open their arms to us. And for that I will always be hugely, hugely grateful.”Hope Moves Forward is the name of the Villa Esperanza Capital Campaign. The organization’s namesake means “House of Hope” and Phase I of the master plan is to build a new school and purchase and renovate a new permanent home for the adult day program, entitled Dimensions. The new Villa Esperanza Services School will include seven classrooms, designed for 12 students, each 71 percent larger than the current classroom size, allowing for an increase in school enrollment by 41 percent; Dimensions Adult Day Program also forecasts growth of 36 percent. Currently the school can only accommodate five children in wheelchairs, but once complete it will be able to accommodate as many as needed in the new facility, making the school more accessible and inviting. All buildings will be energy efficient, built to LEED-certified standards as well as full American Disability Act standards.Villa Esperanza Services has secured 45 percent of the nine million dollar Phase I goal and plans to break ground in July 2015. Phase II, another nine million dollar goal will help complete the renovation, including new occupational and physical therapy facilities and administrative offices, will begin shortly thereafter. When both phases are completed, the main campus will have grown 37 percent to 41,000 square feet.“We are extremely grateful to the Ayrshire Foundation, Wells Fargo, Pasadena Community Foundation, board members, and philanthropic leaders from the community for their generous gifts. We rely on the community to support our general operating and to have them step forward with gifts for capital is truly amazing,” shares Villa CEO Kelly White. “Villa is fortunate to have campaign co-chairs, Cynthia Kurtz and Jim McDermott and many campaign volunteers assisting with this project.”The tremendous showing from the community and Wells Fargo executives was heartwarming and exemplifies the commitment Wells Fargo has to Villa Esperanza Services. Wells Fargo executives in attendance at the launch event included Rich Byrd, Regional Managing Director Abbot Downing; Joe DeFur, Senior Managing Director for California; David DiCristofaro, Greater Los Angeles president; Steve Mann, regional director of Wells Fargo’s Private Bank; Tim Sloan, CFO; John Sotoodeh, LA/OC president; and Lisa Stevens, Pacific Midwest Bank executive.Wells Fargo, recently named the nation’s top corporate philanthropist, acknowledged that the decision to fund the capital campaign was due to the urgent need and the long-standing relationship between Wells Fargo and Villa Esperanza Services. The donation to Villa Esperanza Services is from the national Wells Fargo Foundation budget and will not affect Wells Fargo’s annual giving to other local nonprofits.About Villa Esperanza ServicesVilla Esperanza Services is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the care and education of children, adults and seniors with developmental, intellectual and other disabilities.
