Analysis: JPMorgan dips into cookie jar to offset "London Whale" losses
2012-05-29 15:48:00
NEW YORK (Reuters) - JPMorgan Chase & Co has sold an estimated $25 billion of profitable securities in an effort to prop up earnings after suffering trading losses tied to the bank's now-infamous "London Whale," compounding the cost of those trades. CEO Jamie Dimon earlier this month said the bank sold corporate bonds and other securities, pocketing $1 billion in gains that will help offset more than $2 billion in losses. As a result, the bank will not have to report as big an earnings hit for the second quarter. ...

Best restaurants for an affordable brunch in central London
2012-05-04 16:55:00
By Nina Derham in London— If your accommodation in London doesn’t include breakfast, then a hearty brunch can be a great way to set yourself up for a busy day of sightseeing. It also saves you from splashing the cash on two separate meals. As if that weren’t reason enough, it’s also darn tasty and a great way to recover from a heavy night out. London is awash with options for brunch, but steer clear of the pricey smart hotels that target tourists and head to some of these local’s favorites instead: The Diner's Soho location. Photo: Ewan-M The Diner 18 Ganton Street W1F 6BU Web site Tucked away just off London’s Carnaby Street and a safe distance from the bustle of Oxford Street, The Diner offers all-American indulgence in the form of tasty all-day breakfasts and shakes to those in need of a little TLC.

London: Israeli Sniper Awarded Silver
2012-04-23 22:19:00
London: Israeli Sniper Awarded Silver: Yes, it would have been glorious if Sergey Richter secured the gold, but either way earning the silver metal is quite a feat in my honest opinion. Richter scored 597 points out of a possible 600 in the early 10-meter air rifle standing competition. But after scoring a perfect 100 points in his first two final sets, he missed a shot and scored 99 points in the third. His fourth set was perfect, but his fifth left him at a disadvantage. Still, once in the finales Richter was able to add 104.1 points to his score and win the silver medal. (Ynet News) For those wondering, Edmond Piasecki from France won the gold. Ynet does mention a few other Israeli?s who also competed (although none scored as high as Richter).

Gay Family Treated Like Second Class Citizens at London Heathrow

Two gay dads traveling with their children claim they were humiliated by border officials who refused to believe they were BOTH parents. Seething civil partners Tony and Barrie Drewitt-Barlow said ?horrendous homophobia? confronted them when they landed with three of their five kids at Heathrow. Businessman Tony, 47, said yesterday: ?The woman asked who I was. When I told her I was their father, she asked who ?he? was, looking at Barrie. ?When I said he was my civil partner and also the children?s father, she sneered and said it was ?biologically impossible? for us to be their parents. "It was horrendous ? it made my blood boil. We travel abroad a lot and this has never happened. ?We?ve faced homophobia before but it was like going back in time.?

London: 3 bakeries with delicious brownies, cupcakes and other sweet treats

By Nina Derham in London— If you are going to let loose your indulgent side in London then there’s no better time than Easter. Whether or not you’ve spent the last 12 weeks on a chocolate ban (like your author here has), London’s cake shops and patisseries are at their most tempting around this time of year. No matter the season, here’s my pick of the best places to indulge your sweet tooth: Konditer and Cook Various locations around London Website Few places will get your mouth watering as much as Konditer and Cook. This small-scale London chain is like Willy Wonka’s playground and you have to be very strong willed not to go in and sample everything! Take your pick from the amazingly chocolatey offerings at the brownie bar or the individual lemon flavored “magic cakes.” Or you could opt for any number of cakes, from traditional Victoria sponge, to the amazing banoffee pie. Alternatively, go for a traditional Easter hot cross bun or one of the qui...

Titanic 3D's London Premiere
2012-03-29 11:53:00
Titanic 3D's London PremiereCameron & Winslet reunitedPrior to its release in 1997, the prevailing wisdom had it that you're as like have angels fly outta yer arse as see Titanic back on the big screen 15 years later, and in 3D. How times change, both for the film and the format. Titanic became the biggest film of all time* and the stereoscopic version premiered in London last night to huge excitement. The premiere last night, in the somehow appropriate surroundings of the Royal Albert Hall, saw James Cameron, Billy Zane and Kate Winslet reunite to show that, far across the spaces and distance between them, their collective heart goes on. So that's nice. It was good, too, to see that Cameron wasn't suffering any agoraphobia after his record-breaking trip to the lowest point on the Earth's surface when he descended the Marianas Trench last weekend.For those feeling nostalgic about the film, we've thrown in a couple of pictures from Titanic's original 1...

London Hotels during the Olympics? Consider hostels and camping!
2012-03-27 16:31:00
By Tom Meyers— Finding affordable hotels in London during this summer’s Olympic games is turning into a sport itself, as many hotels are pumping up their rates 100 percent or more during the event, which takes place July 27 – August 12, 2012. All is not lost for Olympic-bound Cheapos, however. Here are a few suggestions for cheap-ish places to sleep in London during the summer games: Bunk it at the Clink. Youth hostels If you don’t mind sleeping in a dorm room with other visitors, there are several hostels in London that still show availability during the game dates. The Generator Hostel, which boasts a party-vibe (complete with bouncer and thumping music) and a Bloomsbury location, still has dorm rooms available for $70, and private quad rooms (with shared bath) for a not-so-cheapo $314. These rates are for August 1-3, 2012, and are about twice what they cost for the first week in July. The Clink 261, located near the Generator in the King’s Cross neighbor...

Istanbul property 'will outperform real estate in London'
2012-03-26 02:00:00
Istanbul is likely to experience stronger capital and rental growth in 2012 than London. Colordarcy, a property investment firm, has highlighted the advantages of buying real estate in Turkey rather than opting for assets in the UK's largest city. The organisation stressed the fact that rental growth in London appears to be slowing, citing figures from the Financial Times indicating net yields on properties in sought-after locations stand at approximately 5.5 per cent. In comparison, yields of 8.5 per cent are achievable on Istanbul's prime real estate, while the cost of buying a home in the Turkish city is less than half of what it is in the British capital. Property price growth of 15 per cent or more is anticipated in Istanbul this year, meaning it will match or beat the figure recorded in 2011, the firm asserted. Knight Frank recently ranked Turkey in seventh position in its Global House Price Index, revealing the value of real estate in the nation as a whole climbed by 7...
