UNs top refugee official urges more support for uprooted Iraqis

15 February 2008In Syria as part of a weeklong visit to the Middle East, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees has appealed to the international community to provide greater support for Iraqis who have fled across borders. António Guterres urged help for Iraqis in Syria and Jordan, for more resettlement places in third countries and for the Government of Iraq to be more active in supporting those who have been forced to flee.The High Commissioner met senior leaders in both Jordan and Syria, including Jordanian King Abdullah II and Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad. He told reporters that he had received assurances from both governments that Iraqi refugees would not be pushed back against their will and that the “asylum space” will be preserved. “This is a very important guarantee,” he added, particularly in view of the heavy burden both countries are bearing.He said the international response remains disproportionate to the scope of the problem.UNHCR and its partners estimate that out of a total population of 26 million, some 4.4 million Iraqis are still uprooted, including 2.4 million displaced inside Iraq and 2 million outside – mainly in Syria and Jordan. In addition, more than 41,000 non-Iraqi refugees are in Iraq.”The international community needs to provide more support to Iraqis themselves through the programmes that assist Iraqi refugees in Syria, Jordan and other host countries,” he said.”Up until now the international assistance has been out of proportion to the challenges that these countries face.”The High Commissioner also asked governments to increase the number of resettlement places for vulnerable refugees. “Some Iraqi families will not be able to go back to their country because they have been tortured or family members were all killed or because of some other situations,” he said. “The number of resettlement opportunities for the most vulnerable is very important.”Mr. Guterres urged the Iraqi Government to reach out to its uprooted population, noting that they were not typical refugees fleeing persecution but, rather, escaping generalized violence.”They need to feel that their government is supporting them and assisting them in the difficult conditions they are facing today,” he said. “My appeal to the Iraqi government is for stronger engagement with Iraqis in Syria and Jordan and with the governments of neighbouring countries.”Mr. Guterres said UNHCR had clear global criteria on the conditions needed for the voluntary return of refugees which ” are not met by the situation in Iraq now.”The agency is not promoting returns to Iraq in the present circumstances “because we do not believe the conditions are there for it to be possible on a meaningful scale,” he said.”That does not mean we cannot support people to go back if they decide to do so in the present circumstances. In our operations around the world we see that people are willing to go home even in the most dramatic circumstances.”The High Commissioner, who left Damascus for the Syrian town of Aleppo on Thursday evening, has also met top Government officials in both countries, talked to refugees and reviewed UNHCR operations. He has sought to assure Governments in the region of UNHCR’s continued commitment to, and engagement in, efforts to ease the plight of Iraq’s displaced.UNHCR this year has appealed for $261 million for programmes to support the most vulnerable of the uprooted inside and outside Iraq. read more

Bank CEOs refocus priorities as Canadians borrow less turn to saving

by David Friend, The Canadian Press Posted Jan 14, 2014 9:24 am MDT TORONTO – Canada’s biggest banks say consumers are reaching the limit on how much they can afford to borrow, and that’s likely to slow loan growth this year.Royal Bank (TSX:RY) chief executive Gord Nixon said Tuesday he expects Canadian households will begin to show more restraint.“In terms of pure consumer lending (growth), we’ll probably be operating at a much lower rate than we have been over the last few years,” he told a bank industry conference.“There’s no question that the consumer has been leveraged up.”Canadians have taken advantage of low interest rates for years by borrowing record amounts that could leave them vulnerable.Policy-makers have expressed concern that a sudden rise in interest rates would leave many consumers unable to meet their payments, potentially causing a fallout that ripples through the housing market and consumer spending.Statistics Canada reported last month that household debt touched an all-time high during the third-quarter of 2013, inching up 0.6 percentage points to 163.7 per cent over the summer months. The increase means Canadians owe nearly $1.64 for every $1 in disposable income they earn in a year.Nixon said he expects consumer lending growth to remain tight, rising by mid single-digit levels, for “an extended period of time” after several years of double-digit increases.“What would be the most healthy outcome for the marketplace is for there to be a steady, orderly increase in interest rates to a reasonable level,” he said.A slower increase in the debt levels of Canadians would help shift away from a dependence on the consumer for overall economic growth, said Bank of Montreal (TSX:BMO) chief executive Bill Downe.He expects U.S. business loans will become a more dominant force in the banking industry this year. BMO could gain a share of that growth through the presence of its Harris bank in the U.S. Midwest.“We’re going to benefit from continued strong commercial and industrial loan growth and I think that’s going to spill over into Canada,” he said.Downe said as consumers borrow less they will focus on financial planning, like saving for retirement, which will help grow its wealth management business.“In essence, it’s a shift on the part of the consumer from borrowing and spending to saving and investing,” he said.While Canadians may take on less debt in the future, more of them will be struggling to pay off their overdue bills rather than saving for the long term, a new survey of risk professionals in the financial services industry suggested.A poll from credit score analysis firm FICO said that 32 per cent of respondents expect that credit card delinquencies will increase over the next six months.And even balances on accounts that aren’t delinquent are predicted to rise, the survey found. About 60 per cent of bankers expect average credit card balances to go up, with nine per cent saying they’ll likely go down.Much of the debt will likely come from unpaid auto loans, which are expected to hit their highest level since the fourth quarter of 2012, FICO said.“While the delinquency predictions in our survey aren’t alarming, lenders will be keeping a close eye on these trends,” said FICO chief analytics officer Andrew Jennings in a release.“Banks are walking a fine line, trying to grow their lending portfolios without taking excessive risks.”The online survey, which was part of a broader poll of North American risk professionals in November, included 82 Canadian respondents.Scotiabank (TSX:BNS) chief executive Brian Porter said he’s comfortable with the credit quality from its customers and doesn’t see any major concerns developing in the real estate market either.“We would view supply and demand relatively in check across the country,” he said.“The one area where we have some little concern is here in Toronto in the condo market.”Toronto-Dominion Bank (TSX:TD) head Ed Clark said low interest rates have pushed housing prices higher and the banking industry should be concerned about the potential for a housing bubble.“I don’t think it’s going to collapse, but I do think that if you run a bank, you should be worried.” he said.“It’s something we should watch.”TD Bank is staying cautious by turning down unfavourable loan applications that some other banks may approve, he said.“We have to always lean against these asset bubbles,” he said.

Vancouver seeks Transportation agency clout in railway battle with CPR

by Tamsyn Burgmann, The Canadian Press Posted Aug 12, 2015 12:48 pm MDT Last Updated Aug 13, 2015 at 11:20 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Vancouver seeks Transportation agency clout in railway battle with CPR VANCOUVER – The City of Vancouver is fighting plans by Canadian Pacific Railway to resurrect train traffic on a rail spur cutting through some of the city’s priciest neighbourhoods.Vancouver has applied to the Canadian Transportation Agency for an order overruling CP’s (TSX:CP) removal of the Arbutus Corridor from lines due to be mothballed.It also wants the railway forced to make an offer to sell the 11-kilometre corridor at its 2004 net salvage value, which is the after-tax value of the land, minus cleanup costs.“The city does not support the reactivation of cargo trains along the Arbutus Corridor,” the city said in a release on Wednesday.“Resuming rail operations on the corridor has numerous inherent safety risks that include deteriorated rail infrastructure.”Officials filed for the two orders last Friday.The city pointed to the corridor’s 50 public crossings at grade level, 18 of which have outdated crossing lights and signals. It also noted a lack of fencing along the corridor. It said the public has used the line extensively for 15 years.Gordon Price, a city councillor from 1986 to 2002, said it was his understanding that if the railway stopped using the track after a certain time period, it would be obliged to put it on the market. The railway maintains ownership of the land.The clash lies in the grey area where the city holds zoning control over the land. That’s now the jumping-off point for negotiations, Price said.Lawyers from both sides are likely to meet before the Canadian Transportation Agency as a means of adjudicating the dispute over the land’s value.“One never really knows what the dynamics are behind the scenes. But somewhere between what CPR was saying, which was hundreds of millions (of dollars) versus the probably bottom estimate the city was offering, there’s got to be something in there,” said Price, who is now director of a program at Simon Fraser University about urban design, sustainable community development, city planning and transportationVancouver and Canadian Pacific have been arguing over the future of the land since trains stopped running on the tracks in 2001.Mayor Gregor Robertson has accused the railway of bullying and said the company rejected the city’s “fair” market offer to buy the land before the company tore up some community gardens planted beside the tracks.The company has proceeded with plans to reactivate cargo trains.In January, a B.C. Supreme Court judge dismissed Vancouver’s application for an injunction halting CP’s removal of the gardens, but also found the city had raised legitimate questions about whether the railway has abandoned the land.Price called the recent development “lawyer fodder.” He doesn’t expect movement any time soon.“In the case of CPR, they don’t have any motivation to move forward. Nor does the city have any reason to accept their number,” he said.“So you probably have a situation where neither party has an incentive to move. And … from the city’s point of view, the less that happens on the line, the better.”Note to readers: This is a corrected story. A previous version incorrectly reported that the city maintains ownership of the land. read more

INSIDE WASHINGTON Plane fire safety rules stall under Trump

INSIDE WASHINGTON: Plane fire safety rules stall under Trump WASHINGTON – A year ago, the U.S. government was campaigning for an international ban on shipments of rechargeable batteries on passenger planes because the batteries can self-ignite, creating intense fires capable of destroying an airliner.“The risk is immediate and urgent,” Angela Stubblefield, a U.S. aviation official, declared then.Today, that urgency has evaporated as safety regulations stall under President Donald Trump’s push to ease what he sees as red tape holding back the economy.The International Civil Aviation Organization, a U.N. agency that sets global aviation safety standards, decided last year to ban bulk shipments of lithium-ion batteries on international passenger flights. On cargo flights, the batteries can be charged to no more than 30 per cent, a level that may reduce the likelihood of fires.As a result, countries around the world have been adopting the new international standard for domestic flights as well. The Obama administration also looked to do so, submitting rules for publication that makes them binding. But after Trump took office on Jan. 20, he signed an executive order freezing the publication of new regulations. That means airlines and cargo operators remain free to ignore the standard for domestic flights.The Obama administration had considered the change so urgent that it was fast-tracked in the rulemaking process. Trump’s executive order says urgent safety rules can be exempted from the freeze, but the new administration isn’t invoking that exemption for battery shipments.“This is part of our ongoing regulatory review,” the Transportation Department said in a statement. “The safe movement of hazardous materials remains a priority. We will provide updates as soon as decisions are made with regard to these and other issues at hand.” No time frame was provided.Rechargeable batteries are used in consumer products ranging from cellphones and laptops to electric cars. Manufacturers like them because they pack more energy into smaller packages, but the batteries can self-ignite if they have a manufacturing flaw, are damaged, exposed to excessive heat, overcharged or packed too closely together. The fires can burn up to 1,100 degrees Fahrenheit, close to the melting point of the aluminum used in aircraft construction.Since 2006, three cargo jets have been destroyed and four pilots killed by in-flight fires that investigators say were either started by batteries or made more severe by their proximity.Most passenger carriers and some cargo operators are voluntarily abiding by the international standard for their domestic operations for the time being. Trade associations for the U.S. and international airline industries, as well as the Air Line Pilots Association, say they support extending the standard to domestic flights.But lobbyists for the battery industry, which opposed the international standard when it was adopted last year, are urging administration officials to make changes that would allow certain batteries to continue to be shipped on passenger flights. The U.N. agency standard already allows for limited exemptions, but lobbyists are asking for blanket exemptions for medical-device batteries and shipments to remote locations and other changes.The position of U.S. negotiators last year was that medical-device batteries were no less dangerous than other kinds.Extending the international ban to domestic flights is “a matter of life and death,” said Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-Ore., the House transportation committee’s senior Democrat and an advocate of banning air shipments of batteries.“If we don’t start following the ICAO guidelines and stop stuffing giant boxes of lithium batteries that are fully charged into passenger aircraft, sooner or later we’re going to kill a lot of people,” he said. “When something is this critical that it will take down an airplane, voluntary compliance with a non-existent rule is not adequate.”But Bob Richard, a battery industry lobbyist, said people living in the Alaskan outback, for example, might not be able to receive batteries for their backup heaters or emergency beacons if the international standard is extended to domestic flights.Under Trump, “regulators are going to be held more accountable for understanding the impacts of their rules,” Richard said. “I think that will cause agencies to take a closer look at the implications.”Battery makers and electronics companies say the problem is mostly limited to manufacturers in China that make substandard batteries and don’t follow hazardous materials shipping regulations. They say greater enforcement of the previous, less stringent shipping rules is the better solution. But a study by Canadian safety authorities found that the problem of battery shippers not following regulations was widespread and not limited to China.Congress directed the Transportation Department last year to adopt the international standard for domestic flights. But it’s not uncommon for federal agencies to ignore congressional directives or delay compliance, especially if they disagree with them.Without harmonization, the U.S. also can’t enforce the U.N. agency standard for international passenger and cargo flights to and from the United States. The U.S. is the world’s largest aviation market.Safety concerns about rechargeable batteries increased after FAA tests in 2014 showed gases emitted by overheated batteries can build up in cargo containers, leading to explosions capable of disabling aircraft fire suppression systems. An organization representing aircraft manufacturers said in 2015 that airliners aren’t designed to withstand lithium battery fires and continuing to accept battery shipments is “an unacceptable risk.”___Follow Joan Lowy at http://twitter.com/AP_Joan_Lowy.

UN marks Day of the Tropics with focus on regions vulnerability

“Loss of biodiversity is greater in the Tropics than in the rest of the world,” according to the Day’s official website, which noted that the region hosts some 80 per cent of the world’s biodiversity and much of its language and cultural diversity.The UN has projected that by 2050, the region will host most of the world’s people and two-thirds of its children. The Day “celebrates the extraordinary diversity of the tropics while highlighting unique challenges and opportunities nations of the Tropics face,” according to the website. For example, nearly 95 per cent of the world’s mangrove forests by area are in the Tropics. Mangroves – ecosystems located on the interface of land and sea in tropical regions – can play an important role in reducing vulnerability to natural hazards and increasing resilience to climate change impacts, by acting as a form of natural coastal defence. However, mangroves are disappearing three to five times faster than overall global forest losses, with serious ecological and socio-economic impacts, according to the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Today’s focus on the Tropics is meant to provide “an opportunity to take stock of progress across the Tropics, to share tropical stories and expertise and to acknowledge the diversity and potential of the region,” according to the Day’s website. Thousands of people have tweeted photos and shared stories under the official hashtags of #WeAreTheTropics and #TropicsDay. The Tropics stretch from the tropic of Cancer – which runs north of the Equator through Mexico, northern Africa and the Middle East, South and South-East Asia – to the circle of latitude known as the tropic of Capricorn, which runs through South America, the southern part of Africa and Australia. One of the key characteristics of the region is the prevalence of rain – which is highly affected by climate change. The Tropics have just over half of the world’s renewable water resources, roughly 54 per cent, the UN said, yet almost half their population is considered vulnerable to water stress. read more

Josesito Lopez Breaks Victor Ortizs Jaw Ruins Title Hopes

Unproven welterweight Josesito Lopez made former welterweight champion Victor Ortiz quit on his stool Saturday night, breaking Ortiz’s jaw en-route to a miraculous upset victory.As he leaped onto the top rope, Lopez (30-4, 18 KOs) showed his surprise at Ortiz’s decision to quit, shrugging his shoulders and smiling at the Staples Center crowd. Lopez was a last minute replacement for Andre Berto, who failed a drug test in the months leading up to the fight.“I knew I had to fight the fight of my life to win,” said Lopez, a native of Riverside, California. “I knew the longer it went, the better chance I’d have. He hits hard, but I was never going to quit. I knew it was a close fight on the scorecards, and I knew I could press him more and more if I continued. He’s like a tree. I had to chop him down.”Ortiz came out strong, using his superior power and overall boxing skills to keep Lopez on the retreat. Despite his obvious disadvantages Lopez conterpunched Ortiz, who is subpar defensively, landing power punches in return.“I’m a man, and I’m not intimidated by anything, I have a big heart. He tried to intimidate me, but it didn’t work. Victor has no heart.”The upset put Ortiz’s career in flux. His showdown with Mexican star Saul “Canelo” Alvarez was abruptly cancelled after his defeat, and the boxer has lost his last two fights. read more

Drawing pictures of smiling spiders can help people overcome arachnophobia

Adam Cox's art therapy is seen as causing far less emotional distress than traditional remedies based on persuading patients to directly confront the spiders Drawing pictures of friendly spiders can help people overcome arachnophobia, a Harley Street hypnotherapist has said.Adam Cox, a Clinical Hypnotherapist, encourages clients in his art therapy sessions to draw brightly coloured, smiling spiders with “big eyes” to reduce their feelings of anxiety towards the arachnids.With an estimated 12 million UK adults admitting to arachnophobia, Mr Cox’s techniques could become increasingly sought after as the autumn marks the start of spider mating season.Mr Cox’s therapy workshops involve an average of 10-15 participants, all of whom have been able to touch a tarantula or help capture and release a house spider afterwards.  Adam Cox’s art therapy is seen as causing far less emotional distress than traditional remedies based on persuading patients to directly confront the spidersCredit:Susannah Ireland The ‘Phobia Guru’ warns that as the fear is often learned from parents, it can easily be passed on to a child who can then develop general anxiety disorder.There is also the danger of an arachnophobic being involved in an accident, like a car crash, if a spider appears in front of them while they are occupied with another activity. Mr Cox, who himself used to suffer from a fear of heights and public speaking, also uses his psychological training to help arachnophobes face the creatures in the ‘Spider Courage Experience’.Phobias are more pronounced than fears, and can become overwhelming and affect day-to-day life. All of Mr Cox's clients have been able to touch a tarantula or help capture and release a house spider after the session. All of Mr Cox’s clients have been able to touch a tarantula or help capture and release a house spider after the session.Credit:Kin Communications An Anxiety UK spokesman said: “Art could play a role in the treatment of spider phobia in that a client with this fear may find it helpful, as part of the graded exposure process, to draw a spider and in doing so, become accustomed and eventually overcome any fear associated with this activity thus enabling them to then move on to the next step, which might be seeing a spider in a jar, for example, placed at the far side of a room.” He told The Telegraph: “The art therapy is partly down to desensitisation but mostly by creating new associations. We encourage the participants to make draw them with big eyes, a smile, give them a name and use bright colours.“In the 4 hour workshop we use a varied approach which includes hypnotherapy, NLP, art therapy, education and desensitisation alongside immersive therapy where they hold the tarantulas, capture and release a house spider and hold a house spider.”Using art therapy is seen as a treatment which causes far less emotional distress than traditional remedies based on persuading patients to directly confront the spiders.

Noel King appointed as Ireland caretaker manager

first_imgNOEL KING HAS been confirmed as Ireland’s caretaker manager, the FAI has confirmed.The 57-year-old, who has been in charge of the Under-21 side since 2010, has been entrusted with leading the senior squad for their remaining World Cup Qualifiers until a suitable replacement is found.According to an official statement from the FAI, King has been named as ‘interim senior manager’. The association’s High Performance Director, Ruud Dokter will provide additional support to the Dubliner. Current U21 Assistant Coach, Harry McCue will take charge of the U21 qualification matches against Romania in October.King takes over from Giovanni Trapattoni, who stepped down from his role as national team boss following a disappointing qualifying campaign for Brazil 2014. Defeats to Germany, Sweden and Austria scuttled any Irish hopes of reaching a second major tournament in succession.The FAI statement read: “[Our] board of management met this evening to review the work it has been doing on the senior men’s team managerial appointment and to progress the next steps in the appointment process.”The association has tasked Dokter and former Ireland and Liverpool midfielder Ray Houghton, who was involved in targeting Trapattoni, with carrying out a ‘comprehensive assessment of the market’. Tellingly, the statement continued:The [board] resolved that it will take the appropriate time to appoint the best person to manage Ireland for the Euro 2016 campaign which starts in September next year.”Noel has worked first hand with many current senior players during their time at U21 level including Seamus Coleman, James McCarthy, Robbie Brady and Jeff Hendrick.In a poll carried out by TheScore.ie today, 42% of fans said they would not be happy with the appointment of King as caretaker. 18% declared they would be happy while 38% voted ‘other’, which perhaps explains the diffidence the team is regarded with after their recent slump in form.35,000 Dublin fans welcome All-Ireland heroes at homecomingJoe Schmidt: November Series will be a trial run for Ireland’s new captainlast_img read more

on Wednesday approve

on Wednesday approved the sum of N1055 billion for the repairs and maintenance of the Third Mainland Bridge Phase II in Lagos The council also directed the Ministry of Works to assess the stress on other bridges across the country and ensure they are regularly maintained Briefing State House correspondents after the meeting presided over by Vice-President Namadi Sambo Minister of Information Labaran Maku joined by his Works and Science and Technology counterparts Mike Ononlememen and Professor Ita Okon respectively said government wanted to be proactive on the condition of the bridges “We should not wait until something is wrong This nation must invest on maintenance” he said adding that the huge sums of money currently being spent on rehabilitation of roads could have been saved if the roads had been well maintained Maku named some of the bridges in the country which were in poor state to include Jebba Lokoja Benue among others noting that “we need to ensure that there is a regular process of checking them of measuring their integrity and that in every year’s budget there is provision to maintain the major bridges in the country” The minister argued that the need for urgent maintenance of the bridges arose from the result of a dynamic investigation on the Third Mainland Bridge which revealed alarming deterioration in its structure According to the government’s spokesman “an underwater inspection was undertaken by the ministry and the resultant preliminary report revealed alarming deterioration and serious damages on a number of pile foundations of the Third Mainland Bridge” Share Georgia a place many of us here call home, “assenting to Nigerian Peace Corps Bill will be our President’s best gift to the Nigerian youths and students”. but also acknowledging

times even when it is bitter” Oritsejafor who leads the Warrri-based Word of Life Bible Church also stressed on the need for Nigerians to obtain their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) before the March 28

to violence before during and after elections He said “the fruit of the spirit is love and joy and peace and patience and goodness and gentleness and self control” Transfer addiction also called cross addiction or substitute addiction is trading one addiction for another As a dietitian who works with a variety of weight loss patients this topic is one that I frequently discuss with my patientsExperiments show that for some people the same pleasure centers in the brain that are triggered by drugs such as cocaine can also be triggered by food When eating pleasure chemicals such as serotonin dopamine and endorphins get released in the brain The pleasure derived from these chemicals can override the body’s feeling of fullness causing people to continue seeking that pleasure which leads to eating frequently and to excessWhen patients start the process of undergoing bariatric surgery here at St Luke’s they are educated and provided with information about the potential risk for transfer addiction Bariatric surgery is weight loss surgery where the stomach is reduced or removed Studies show patients who undergo any type of bariatric weight loss surgery are at increased risk for developing a transfer addiction Patients who undergo weight loss surgery are likely to have had a history of turning to food during emotional times After bariatric surgery their body is physically unable to consume large amounts of food and they may look elsewhere for the satisfaction that they used to get from foodWhile bariatric patients are at high risk for developing a transfer addiction it can affect anyone who is trying to restrict their food intake or make any lifestyle changes Those most at risk for developing transfer addiction are those with a personal or family history of addiction those with existing mental health conditions and those who do not recognize their compulsive use of foodWhen restricting food a common transfer addiction is to begin to use drugs or alcohol However other common transfer addictions in weight loss patients are exercising and shopping addictions Exercise and shopping addictions are easy to hide because both are habits that are socially acceptable and even praised especially during times of weight loss People around you may be encouraging you on your new gym routine or complimenting your new fashion choices There are warning signs that may alert to the potential of addiction Especially in individuals who have been successful with weight loss the period of time immediately after the initial weight loss can be difficult Be mindful of your emotions develop coping strategies that do not lead to excess stay connected to a support group of family and friends and if necessary seek professional helpBe aware habits are very different than an addiction Just because you have a new regimented gym routine does not mean that you have developed an exercise addiction Remember an addiction is compulsive seeking and use despite harmful consequences Has your new gym routine had negative effects on your relationships employment or health Much of my job is counseling patients to be mindful toward food; being mindful regarding food choices food consumption and emotional eating Taking time to be mindful is one of the best steps you can take toward developing overall healthful habits said people came inside seeking

beyond the seven figure salary: Its the one figure salary Members of the $1 salary club earned just enough money in salary in 2013 to afford one McCafé from the McDonalds dollar menu This phenomenon started in WWI and WWII when executives sacrificed their salaries to help fund the wars but were required to accept some form of compensation because US law forbids the government from accepting work from unpaid volunteers But why would anyone today trade in a seven-figure-plus salary for one measly dollar Most dollar-a-year execs have received (or continue to receive) option awards which increase in value over time as well as other forms of compensationlike bonuses and non-equity incentive plans Such forms of compensation are based strictly on company performance and not on a guaranteed yearly paycheck This means executives can align their personal financial interests with company interests So who are the executives who can afford to collect a $1 a year salary Research engine FindTheBest scoured the web to find out compiling compensation information from the SEC on thousands of executives from publicly traded companies across dozens of industries Following is the resulting list of 25 CEOs Chairmen and other top execs who banked $1 salaries in 2013 $1 Salary Club | FindTheBest Among the richest members of the $1 Salary Club are Oracles Larry Ellison (net worth $50 billion) Googles Larry Page (net worth $312 billion) and Facebooks Mark Zuckerberg (net worth 279 billion) Their wealth is so closely tied to their companies stock that receiving a few hundred thousand dollars extra wouldnt make a dent Of the 25 execs above Larry Ellison made the most last year ($796 million) mostly due to the $768 million he received in option awards Mark Zuckerberg also concluded the year with more than $1 in his pocket making $653165 through "other compensation" compensation that does not fit into the SECs other defined categories of compensation Unlike Ellison and Zuckerberg whose total compensation surpassed $1 in 2013 despite their salaries Larry Pages total compensation stayed put at $1 But thats not to say he didnt make moneyGoogles stock price rose by 56 percent last year Two women also made the list Meg Whitman (CEO of Hewlett-Packard) and Susan K Barnes (CFO and Executive VP of Pacific Biosciences) Whitman previously CEO of eBay earned $176 million in 2013 despite her miniscule salary Like Ellison Barnes earned most of her money last year ($436509) through option awards Among the executives who like Larry Page received only $1 in total annual compensation in 2013
