Japan Average Wages Rise - Nasdaq.com

After adjustment for inflation, however, wages actually declined 1.5% on year, meaning that wage increases are not keeping up with prices, the labor ministry figures site released Tuesday showed. Still, the size of decline was the smallest since March, reflecting both nominal wage gains and lower inflation as a result of recent sharp falls in oil celebrities tapes prices . Last year real wages declined an average 2.5%, weakening consumption and helping push the economy into a brief recession. Increases in nominal wages were outweighed by higher consumer prices following the first sales tax increase in 17 years in April. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe hopes his economic revival plan, known as Abenomics, and sustained pay increases will eventually restore consumer confidence and reignite Japan's private consumption, putting Japan on a path of self- sustaining economic growth. Mr. Abe pins great hopes on ongoing annual wage negotiations between large employers and major labor unions for the coming business year. The conclusion of most wage talks will come around March 18. Last year, large unions and employers agreed on an average 0.4% increase in base wages--excluding bonuses and overtime--a very small gain but nonetheless the highest in 15 years, as Japan Inc. http://albertoxlhs.blurpalicious.com

France Lock Pape Loses Appeal Against 10-week Suspension - Yahoo News

8 Jamie Heaslip in the back during their Six Nations rugby match last month. http://anthonywmvx.hazblog.com/ An independent Six Nations appeal committee [read] made its ruling after a hearing on Tuesday. Pape appealed that the sanction which prevents him playing until May 18, was excessive and disproportionate, but the appeal committee disagreed.

Heaslip suffered three damaged vertebrae, accepted an apology from Pape, and missed last Saturday's 19-9 win over England in Dublin. Ireland, the only side capable of the Grand Slam, was optimistic Heaslip will be available to play Wales in Cardiff on March 14.

Austria's Raiffeisenbank Says Will Close Branches In Russian Far East - Yahoo Finance

trading Banks are suffering from higher bad loan provisions and lower profits because of the crisis, deepened by Western sanctions over Moscow's role in the Ukraine conflict and lower oil prices. Raiffeisenbank said the decision to close seven branches in six of the far east's main cities was taken because of the low potential for developing its customer base in the region, which is sparsely populated and largely served by Russian banks. "In the current environment, it is important to be efficient and profitable," the bank said in a statement. "In the development of our sales network, we will focus on those cities where our offices show sufficient profitability." Foreign banks have been cutting their exposure to Russia, once considered one of the world's fastest growing banking markets, since the crisis hit last year, driving the rouble down against the dollar and fuelling capital flight. Raiffeisenbank said it was considering the possible sale of its loan portfolio and customer segment of small and micro businesses, and was doing all it could to support its customers. On Thursday, Standard trading & Poor's rating agency said the Russian banking system could see its bad loans rise to 17-23 percent this year from around 8 percent last year, and that profit for the sector was seen at close to zero.

Hollywood Prepares For Its Oscars Close-up - Yahoo News

But Linklater's "Boyhood" -- which was made over the course of 12 years with the same actors aging with their characters -- scooped up the biggest awards at last month's Golden Globes, as well as Britain's BAFTAs. Some have even suggested that Clint Eastwood's "American Sniper" could sneak up on the inside as a dark horse, boosted by the film's box office success as the highest-grossing war movie of all time.

Rangers' Banister Basks In Glow Of 1st Workout As Manager - Yahoo Sports

(AP) -- Jeff Banister has plenty of time to worry about whether Prince Fielder and Shin Soo-Choo will be healthy, productive hitters again, or if ace Yu Darvish and left-hander Derek Holland can lift the Rangers out of last place in the AL West. The first-year Texas manager was simply looking forward to being in charge of a big-league workout for the first time Saturday after 29 years in the Pittsburgh organization as a player, coach and instructor at all levels. ''I get to wake up, come downstairs and be excited,'' Banister said. ''I'll put that uniform on and feel like I am the luckiest guy on the planet.'' Coming off four straight 90-win seasons that extended past the regular 162 games and included consecutive trips to the World Series, the Rangers bottomed out quickly last season, using a major league-record 64 players because of injuries. Texas was an AL-worst 67-95. The Rangers also went through 40 pitchers, and Darvish is the one most likely to stabilize the staff if he can stay healthy atop the rotation. The right-hander, who didn't pitch after Aug. 9 because of elbow inflammation, threw a bullpen session Saturday.

France Inks Jet Sale To Egypt As Cairo Bombs Is - Yahoo News

Egypt bombs Islamic State <a href=my company targets in Libya after 21 Egyptians beheaded' /> Paris is also eyeing possible deals with Qatar and Malaysia. "There is a psychological barrier that has been broken down," Trappier said in an interview with French business daily Les Echos. "In terms of our image, it will help us get over the line in other countries," he said. Attempts to sell the jet to countries such as South Korea, Singapore, Morocco, Switzerland and Brazil have seen the Rafale lose out to its foreign competitors.

Germany's Afd Party Advances In State Polls - Nasdaq.com

The first projections will be updated throughout the evening.

But the state elections also helped the pro-business Free Democrats to stay in the state parliament, delivering a rare victory and a comeback to Ms. Merkel's previous coalition partner, which has lost a string of state elections since it failed to get representation in the national parliament in 2013.

"The Free Democrats are struggling to survive and they managed to set a clear signal Sunday that they are still an option." Last year, the populist AfD upstart party gained representation in three eastern German state parliament elections, winning around 10% of the votes in Brandenburg, Saxony and Thuringia.

Austria Requests Tax Data From France In Hsbc Case - Yahoo Finance

The finance ministry said a request for legal web site assistance had been sent to Paris on Wednesday. France has had access to leaked HSBC client data since around the end of 2008, according to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), which coordinated the http://joshuadfau.cowblog.fr release of details. Around 400 cases linked with Austria have emerged in media reports which alleged that HSBC helped wealthy customers, including footballers and arms dealers, conceal millions of dollars of assets. According to the ICIJ, the money associated with Austrian cases amounts to $1.2 billion (1 billion pounds) in around 1,200 bank accounts. Just over half of the cases linked with Austria relate to accounts held by Austrian nationals, the ICIJ website says, without giving further details. The website has not named any of the clients linked with Austria. Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann has repeatedly stressed the importance of a pan-European effort to punish tax dodgers.

Australia Hones Wcup Preparations, Beats India By 106 Runs - Yahoo News

India's World Cup prospects appear bleak as it remained without a win in three tests and five one-day matches in Australia this summer while losing veteran fast bowler Ishant Sharma to a knee injury. Warner set the tempo for the first half of the Australian innings with a century from 80 balls and Maxwell accelerated later, reaching his hundred from 53 balls the second 50 coming from only 19 deliveries. Maxwell rushed on to 122, retiring after hitting Max Workouts three consecutive sixes check it out from the bowling of Umesh Yadava in an over that claimed a wicket and cost 27 runs. "It's nice to be hitting the ball really well coming to a massive tournament like this," Maxwell said. "One more practice to go and then hopefully I hit the tournament running with lots of runs and in a good head space." India bowled well enough late in the innings to prevent Australia reaching 400. After his savage welcome at Warner's hands, Shami recovered strongly to Max Workouts dismiss George Bailey (44), Mitchell Johnson (19) and Pat Cummings (5) to finish with 3-83. Ajinkya Rahane made 66 and Shikhar Dhawan 59 as India was dismissed in reply. While Rahane and Dhawan were together, in a 104-run partnership for the third wicket, India was scoring at just behind the run rate needed to threaten Australia's total. But when both were out within 15 runs between the 25th and 29th overs, India's challenge faltered.
