The Los Angeles Lakers did not give fired coach Mike Brown a “fair shake,” according to LeBron James, who played under Brown with the Cleveland Cavaliers for five years.“I think it’s unfortunate,” James said Friday after the Heat’s win in Atlanta against the Hawks. “I just don’t think he got a fair shake, honestly. With the shortened season last year, and five games into this year, he didn’t really get a full season.”Fair shake or not, the Lakers move on with their search for a replacement, apparently centering on Phil Jackson and Mike D’Antoni, according to ESPNLosAngeles.com.“It’s neck and neck,” the source said. The Lakers intend to call Jackson on Saturday to gauge his interest in returning to the sideline.If the initial conversation with Jackson goes well, the Lakers are hoping to meet with him this weekend. While the Lakers have focused on Jackson, it would have to be a “philosophical match,” according to sources. Issues such as how much control over personnel decisions Jackson will want and whether he would travel to all games — issues that became problematic during Jackson’s last stint with the team — will surely be raised.The Lakers also have made initial contact with D’Antoni’s agent, sources said. D’Antoni already is stumping for the job.“If they offer it, I’d love it. It’d be a perfect fit,” D’Antoni told Fox Sports Southwest and DallasBasketball.com in the hours after Brown’s firing.The Lakers would like to move quickly through this process, as interim coach Bernie Bickerstaff has committed to working only a few games.Jackson is open to returning to the NBA sideline, multiple sources with knowledge of the Hall of Fame coach’s thinking told ESPNLosAngeles.com’s Dave McMenamin.Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak told reporters Friday afternoon that the team’s brain trust — Kupchak along with Lakers owner Dr. Jerry Buss and executive vice president of player personnel Jim Buss — already has put together a list of potential replacements for Bickerstaff. Among the “four or five” names on that short list is Jackson, according to a league source. read more

first_imgAs part of the revised terms, the country’s largest bank by assets has decided to halt lending to dealers of Hyundai Motor India.ReutersState Bank of India (SBI) has tightened lending terms dramatically for auto dealerships, according to a source and an internal memo seen by Reuters, seeking to reduce its exposure to risk from a sector in the midst of a sharp downturn.The shadow banking crisis that began to unfold in India during mid-2018 has deepened this year. The liquidity crunch in non-bank financing, higher insurance costs and rises in taxation have served to increase the pressure on the car sector, with monthly auto sales falling by 17-20% since April.Monthly passenger vehicle sales in June fell by the biggest margin in 18 years.In one internal memo for financing dealers selling vehicles made by Hyundai Motor Co’s India unit, SBI said it is revising the lending terms because of “growing stress” in the carmaker’s portfolio.Similar memos have been sent to dealerships for all other brands, said a senior SBI official aware of the matter, though Reuters has not seen memos relating to other carmakers.As part of the revised terms, the country’s largest bank by assets has decided to halt lending to dealers of Hyundai Motor India unless they provide a minimum of 25% collateral, it said in the memo.Hyundai dealers that had already received loans from the bank will also have to provide security of between 25% and 50% of the loan amount, SBI said in the memo dated March 27 and signed by the chief general manager for supply chain financing.Hyundai did not immediately reply to an email seeking comment outside business hours.The company is India’s second-largest carmaker with more than 16% of a market accounting for 3.3 million passenger vehicles in the year to March 31.Japanese carmaker Suzuki Motor Corp’s Indian business, Maruti Suzuki, dominates with a 50% share while rivals including Toyota, Volkswagen, Ford and Nissan also produce and sell cars in the country.While it is known that several Indian banks have broadly tightened lending to the auto sector, specifics have not been disclosed.”There is an auto sales slow down and we have substantial exposure to autos. We want to stay safe and this was done to mitigate risk and protect us,” said the SBI official, who asked not to be named because the details had not been made public.SBI’s loan exposure in the auto retail market was 718.8 billion rupees ($10.5 billion) at the end of March, according to regulatory filings.”In view of the current slowdown in the auto sector, the bank is continuously reviewing its exposure,” SBI told Reuters, adding that it is evaluating the situation and engaging with dealers to ensure the sector does not face any undue stress.TIGHTER SCRUTINYOther lenders have also become more wary of lending to dealers with credit lines from different banks.Dipak Gupta, joint managing director at Kotak Mahindra Bank, earlier this month said some dealers were using credit lines from one bank to pay off another, and banks are now taking a harder look at such practices.In its memo, SBI said that if a dealer had raised funding from more than three banks including SBI, the collateral requirement would be increased to a minimum of 50%. SBI has also cut the credit period for dealers to 60 days from 90 days.The bank will also monitor stock and inventory levels on a monthly basis to keep tabs on the dealer’s financial health.The tighter scrutiny comes at a time when inventories at dealers have risen to 50-60 days of sales, up from around 45 days previously, according to industry data.In an effort to help its dealers, Maruti Suzuki has tied up with state-run Bank of Baroda for dealer finance and is in talks with other banks to ease strict lending terms, local newspaper Mint reported earlier in July.last_img read more

Share This! Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,(RNS) — It’s been a maxim for decades: Jewish synagogues in Arab countries are dying, and no new ones are being built.But there’s an exception. A new synagogue formed in the United Arab Emirates a few years ago  has persevered without a rabbi. On Tuesday (May 14), at a forum sponsored by the Anti-Defamation League and the UAE government, it was announced it will have a rabbi, too.Rabbi Yehuda Sarna, a Canadian native who has served for 17 years as New York University’s chaplain and executive director of its Hillel chapter, has been named chief rabbi of the Jewish Community of the Emirates.Sarna is not leaving his post at NYU but taking on a new responsibility. He plans to travel to Dubai four times a year and serve as a spokesman for the nascent Jewish community located there.“It’s a very exciting and daunting challenge to try to build the community in such a way that is not only sustainable and enriching for the people who are members of it, but also it serves the function of engaging with the Muslim world in that part of the world,” Sarna said.Rabbi Yehuda Sarna, chaplain at New York University. Photo courtesy of Religion and Ethics NewsWeeklyThe Jewish Community of the Emirates, as it’s known, meets in an unmarked home in a residential location in Dubai so as to attract little attention in this predominantly Muslim country. It draws about 200 Jews, many of them business people from all over the world who have flocked to the UAE to take part in its growing economic power as it shifts from a reliance on oil and trade to technology and artificial intelligence.Services are Orthodox in format, with separate seating for men and women, but Sarna said that in time the synagogue might offer multiple services to include various forms of Jewish worship in the same building.There are, of course, synagogues in other Arab countries: Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia, for example. But those are historic communities that have existed for ages, dating back, in some cases, to pre-biblical times.In 1945, there were an estimated 1 million Jews living in Arab countries; today there are maybe 4,000. Countries such as Syria, Egypt and Iraq once boasted vibrant Jewish communities. Most have been forced to flee, and in some places, like Iraq and Syria, the Jewish population has dropped into the single digits.“Jewish communities have thrived under Muslim rule for hundreds of years,” said David Mednicoff, who chairs the Department of Judaic and Near Eastern Studies at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. “In many ways, this is going back to something that was once normal.”The UAE, a confederation of seven emirates, has touted religious coexistence, appointing a Minister of Tolerance in 2016 and declaring 2019 “the year of tolerance.”In February, the country hosted Pope Francis. It has a minority Christian population of about 1.2 million, many from India and the Philippines.During the pope’s visit, the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi announced plans to construct an Abrahamic House, which will contain a mosque, a church and a synagogue.The United Arab Emirates, red, located in the Middle East. Map courtesy of Creative CommonsDubai, the largest city in the UAE, has been perhaps the most open.“They’ve always been the least conservative and most loose, but in recent years they’ve embraced international businesses and have become a kind of self-contained unit,” said Curtis Ryan, a professor of political science at Appalachian State University in Boone, N.C., who studies the Middle East.Over the past few years, relations between Israel and the UAE have warmed, and diplomats have conducted stealth meetings, despite the two countries’ lack of official ties. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited the neighboring country of Oman last year, and Israel announced it would take part in the 2020 World Expo in Dubai.The Dubai synagogue is one chapter in this warming trend.“This is a historic moment for interfaith cooperation for religious freedom, and it’s happening in the most complicated part of the world,” said Johnnie Moore, a member of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom who attended the ADL-UAE forum Tuesday.Sarna who also spoke at the forum said he has already visited the synagogue in Dubai at least a dozen times in his role as NYU chaplain because the university has a four-year degree-granting academic center in Abu Dhabi.“You come to a community event and your mind is blown by the eclectic adventurous stories you hear,” Sarna said. The journey people have that brought them to the UAE and the vision of the future they aspire to. It’s an amazing crossroads for many people.”(National reporter Jack Jenkins contributed to this report)last_img read more
