Jackie Trad
We have determined as a Cabinet that any money that is sourced from the NAIF for the rail line needs to come directly from the Commonwealth to the proponent, to Adani particularly. So our position is that the Federal Government should be funding Adani from the NAIF directly and not using Queensland as a middle man.feedback

E. Susan Garsh

Abatement remains the law in this Commonwealth and this court is compelled to follow binding precedent. The Commonwealth maintains that Hernandez deliberately, and voluntarily acted to end his life and that such conduct manifests an intention to abandon his filed appeal. This court cannot know why Hernandez chose to end his life.feedback

Sophie Emma Rose

When I look at some of the negative comments on my channel, I'm amazed that some people still feel strongly about how wrong it is to breastfeed a child and share that over YouTube. But I'm going to continue uploading videos. I think the work I'm doing affirms other mums who want to breastfeed older kids or babies. I feel the act of me breastfeeding without shame on YouTube sends the message out that it is ok. Breasts are not just sexual objects, this is what they're made for.feedback

Sophie Emma Rose

I know that breastfeeding does end – children eventually lose the latch and are not physically able to breastfeed past the age of about seven or eight years old.feedback

Claire Rowcliffe

Communities from across the UK and the Commonwealth were affected by the terrible losses sustained on the frontline in the Flanders region of Belgium. The Passchendaele 100 Poppy Pin is a poignant tribute to all those who made the ultimate sacrifice.feedback

Gordon Rayner

The queen made a promise to the people of the Commonwealth before she even became queen that she would devote her whole life, whether it be long or short to the duty that she would be taking on. For her it is a duty you carry for your whole life and to her that means literally. She is not somebody that would take a vow and not see it through. It has never been in her thoughts at any point in her life. He has been by her side for the past 70 years. It will be slightly lonely as she has had a companion in him and hasn't really done anything without him before.feedback

David Turner

As a doctor, Ralph Northam has been fighting for a fairer healthcare system his entire career. Virginians know he's helped lead the fight to implement the Affordable Care Act in the commonwealth and expand Medicaid to 400,000 people. Republicans should be ashamed of the bill passed today, and Dr. Northam is going to call them out for their spineless.feedback

Malcolm Baker

Brexit isn't about being little Britain. It's about becoming more global and with the right people in charge taking the opportunity to trade with the United States, with the Commonwealth, with every country.feedback

Ed Gillespie

Virginians are focused on Virginia. As I travel Virginia, Virginians are very focused on Virginia. And I'm very focused on Virginia. Look, a lot of Virginians voted for President Trump. And a lot did not. This election's about Virginia and the future of the commonwealth we love. People know we can do better. But if we don't make a change, then nothing will change.feedback

Matt Canavan

Hopefully it's a wake-up call to the states and territories to get off their backsides and develop their own resources. Where we've ended up demonstrates the folly of a lot of these policies.feedback

Mark Butler

If I had my time again, I would be arguing back then for the national interest test policy [on gas exports] that we have in place now.feedback

Wade Noonan

The Victorian and Commonwealth Governments have been working with KHI on an engineering study into the possible production of hydrogen from Victorian brown coal.feedback

Federico de Jesús

If (Congress) includes extending current Obamacare funding under Medicaid for Puerto Rico, that wouldn't be a bailout to the Commonwealth, it would actually be saving money for state and federal taxpayers who would otherwise face an even more massive influx of Puerto Ricans moving to the US, where health care is 3 to 4 times more expensive than in the Island. It's time for the President to fulfill his promise of providing healthcare to all, and stop scapegoating Puerto Rico for his own unrelated failures.feedback

Josh Frydenberg

The commonwealth would welcome any proposal to protect human life first and foremost.feedback

Darren Chester - Federal Transport

The CSIRO report has been provided to Malaysia for consideration in its ongoing investigation into the disappearance of MH370. Malaysia is the lead investigator and any future requests in relation to searching for MH370 would be considered by Australia, at that time.feedback

David Griffin

Testing an actual flaperon has added an extra level of assurance to the findings from our earlier drift modelling work. We've found that an actual flaperon goes about 20 degrees to the left, and faster than the replicas, as we thought it might. The arrival of MH370's flaperon at La Reunion in July 2015 now makes perfect sense. We add both together in our model to simulate the drift across the ocean, then compare the results with observations of where debris was and wasn't found, in order to deduce the location of the aircraft.feedback

David Griffin

We wanted to see if the genuine flaperon drifted straight downwind like the replicas, or off at an angle, and at what speed through the water. We've found that an actual flaperon goes about 20 degrees to the left, and faster than the replicas, as we thought it might. The arrival of MH370's flaperon at La Reunion in July 2015 now makes perfect sense. Knowing how the flaperon, and the other parts of MH370 that have been found, respond to wind and waves is just as important as knowing the currents of the Indian Ocean.feedback

Ben Jeffes

Father and daughter were surfing out where the waves were breaking and that's where the attack occurred. The father obviously tried everything he could to save his daughter. He's brought her to shore and then the family contacted emergency services. In light of the recent shark attack the Commonwealth would welcome any proposal to put human life first.feedback

Matthew Segal

Today is a major victory for justice and fairness, and for thousands of people in the Commonwealth who were unfairly convicted of drug offenses. Unfortunately, the victims of this crisis waited far too long for justice. It shouldn't have taken years of litigation by the ACLU, public defenders, and pro bono lawyers to address this stain on the Commonwealth's justice system.feedback

Terry McAuliffe

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families, survivors and the entire Virginia Tech community who have shown incredible strength and resilience while facing unimaginable grief. We should reflect on the heartbreaking events that took place and use this moment to come together to ensure an incident of this magnitude never happens again in our Commonwealth.feedback

Tim Kaine

We're going with a lot of different emotions, but we wouldn't be anywhere else. Remains "the worst day of my life. I remember saying to them, I'll never understand what you lost, because I never lost a child, a spouse, a parent or a sibling. But as somebody who has grown to know the biographies and stories of each of these 32, I begin to have a sense of what the Commonwealth lost, what the country lost, what the world lost on April 16, 2007.feedback

Alex H. Krist

Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers to affect men, and the decision about whether to begin screening using PSA-based testing is complex. For men who are more willing to accept the potential harms, screening may be the right choice for them. Men who are more interested in avoiding the potential harms may choose not to be screened. In the end, men who are considering screening deserve to be aware of what the science says, so they can make the best choice for themselves, together with their doctor.feedback

Jason Clare

Adani has said this funding is not critical, they'd love to have … a concessional loan from the commonwealth paid by taxpayers, but they've said that it's not make or break.feedback

Paul Begala

Ralph Northam will continue the pragmatic progressive agenda of McAuliffe, Warner and Kaine in the commonwealth.feedback

Matt Bevin

Thank you for this investment. Words don't even begin to fully express the gratitude that the commonwealth of Kentucky has for Toyota, for your investment, for your partnership.feedback

Isaac Bodden

It is wonderful to think there could be Cornish men and women who don't realise that their ancestor helped found a country. The aim is to build cultural links, which will be good for Cornwall. As we extricate ourselves from the EU rebuilding and reformulating links with Commonwealth countries is important and Cayman is a part of that.feedback

John Orchard

Grade cricket does not have the infrastructure in place to safely monitor and manage heatstroke in what is essentially an amateur, volunteer-run organisation.feedback

Michael Heseltine

We've now abandoned the opportunity to influence Europe, the council of ministers will meet and we won't be there. Our ability to speak for the Commonwealth within Europe has come to an end. The Americans will shift their focus of interest to Germany. And if I can put it to you, for someone like myself, it was in 1933, the year of my birth, that Hitler was democratically elected in Germany. He unleashed the most horrendous war. This country played a unique role in securing his defeat.feedback

Ed Gillespie

Whether it's the coal tax credit, the Tebow bill, or education choice legislation, I've never seen a governor so proud of everything he didn't get done for the Commonwealth.feedback

Omer Esiner - Commonwealth Foreign Exchange

Broadly the dollar continues to struggle after last week's Fed statement which sounded a less hawkish tone than some had expected. It still looks like bit of a positioning, maybe consolidation driven move, more than any meaningful deterioration in the dollar's longer-term outlook.feedback

Thomas Perriello

There's an unbelievable amount of energy right now across the Commonwealth that's up for grabs. We've seen some things this year we've never seen before in terms of the intensity and breadth of the progressive response. The old gatekeepers don't have the same control they used to.feedback

Gary Settle

With the ruthless impact heroin has had on our communities across the Commonwealth, investigations like this are vital for residents to be empowered to take back their neighborhoods from drug-trafficking organizations.feedback

David Olusoga

Hopes that post-Brexit Britain can boost Commonwealth trade is ill-founded. Those countries have moved on. When Lord North, prime minister at the time of the American revolution, received the news that British forces had lost the war, and with it the American colonies, he was reported to have been physically struck by the magnitude of the news, as if hit by a musket ball. “Oh God, it’s all over,” he wrote in his diary.feedback

Malcolm Turnbull

We would look forward to the other shareholders contributing to it but, if they don't wish to contribute additional equity and they would rather the commonwealth government did that, we are very happy to contribute equity on a commercial basis into this project. That is our commitment.feedback

Queen Elizabeth

Over the next 12 months, the baton will visit people living in the nations and territories of our Commonwealth family in every continent and ocean.feedback

Queen Elizabeth

Contained within the Baton will be a written message that will be opened and read at the Commonwealth Games in Australia next year. However, there is an even more powerful message to be seen and experienced as the Baton passes from hand to hand, from seashore to mountaintop, through cities, towns and villages. It is the message of a peace-building Commonwealth.feedback

Denver Riggleman

I'm ok batting cleanup for the Commonwealth. If I'm the last on the ballot, so be it. Save the best for last.feedback

Gideon Sam

We had hoped to make this a Games for all of Africa, and so this is a very sad day for the whole continent.feedback

Gideon Sam

This is a huge disappointment for us and for the whole African continent. But without the necessary government guarantees, we couldn't move on. Everybody was very excited to see the Commonwealth Games staged in Durban, which was very well equipped to host the event, but once the economics started to play a role, it became difficult.feedback

Louise Martin

The CGF is actively exploring alternative options, including a potential replacement host. The CGF is fully confident and committed to delivering a successful Commonwealth Games for athletes and fans in 2022.feedback

Tom Wolf

You're basically either consigning the seniors to less care or the commonwealth of Pennsylvania to spend more money, or a combination of both. That's a real problem.feedback

Tom Wolf

State agencies are taking proactive steps to ensure Pennsylvania is ready for the incoming winter weather and Pennsylvanians should take their own precautions and prepare for adverse conditions, especially for travel. We are preparing for the most significant part of the storm to hit the Eastern half of the state from Monday night into Tuesday's commute. I ask residents and commercial drivers across the commonwealth to prepare to avoid unnecessary travel on roadways during this time – as to let road crews and emergency responders do their jobs and minimize dangerous travel.feedback

Jonathan Marland

I would like to see in the next 12 months, as we move to the Commonwealth summit, that we develop a standard of rules – which could be a Commonwealth accord – which identifies common business practices within the Commonwealth countries which countries can subscribe to.feedback

Jonathan Marland

Obviously UK trading relations are now up for grabs. What easier and better place [is there] to trade than with countries who have shared associations for many years, where you speak the same language, where you have the same basic rule of law? That's why we need to come up with an accord that underlines that.feedback

Patricia Scotland

That ... advantage is something which we as a Commonwealth are absolutely determined to exploit and to grow, and at this meeting today we were able to have a comprehensive opportunity to consider how in practice we do that.feedback

Jonathan Marland

They do, of course, need to acknowledge that they withdrew from all the trading relationships with all the Commonwealth countries and approach it with a degree of humility that recognises that.feedback

Munira Gunja

Excluding people who never had insurance, 21 million adults might have been subject to the penalty.feedback

Jose Carrion

Without major emergency actions, the Commonwealth soon will be unable to pay essential services, including pensions, education, health care and public safety in a matter of months. Puerto Rico has run out of money and time. This is only going to get worse as the clock keeps ticking.feedback

Jose Carrion

Without major emergency actions, the Commonwealth soon will be unable to pay essential services, including pensions, education, health care and public safety, in a matter of months.feedback

Ed Gillespie

I would like to know why Congressman Tom Perriello and Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam think it's a good idea for people like Nathan Larson and for those who are the most violent felons in the commonwealth should not only have their rights restored and be able to vote but also to be able to run for office and put them on a path to be able to obtain a weapon.feedback

Gareth Aird - Commonwealth Bank of Australia

I just don't think at the moment given what's happening with house prices and household debt, the reserve bank can take rates lower. So I think rates will stay on hold from here and it won't be until inflation gets up to that target band that i think rate raises will come on to the table.feedback

Philip Lowe

In China, growth is being supported by higher spending on infrastructure and property construction. This composition of growth and the rapid increase in borrowing mean that the medium-term risks to Chinese growth remain. Taking account of the available information the Board judged that holding the stance of policy unchanged at this meeting would be consistent with sustainable growth in the economy and achieving the inflation target over time.feedback

Nikola Casule

The Commonwealth Bank claims to support the Paris Agreement's goal of keeping climate change to well below 2 degrees but it has lent more to fossil fuel projects since the Paris Agreement was signed than any other Australian bank.feedback

Julien Vincent

I wouldn't ever take the kind of positive trends we see in the lending and assume the banks aren't going to fund the Adani coalmine, for example. Politically there is a lot of leaning on the banks to not cave in to environmental campaigns. We need them to show a little bit of courage and say no to the Carmichael coalmine and expansion.feedback

Nikola Casule

The Commonwealth Bank knows it has one of the most recognisable brands in Australia, it also knows that most Australians support stronger action on climate change. [Chief executive] Ian Narev ... needs to decide whether he wants that brand associated with dirty coal or a future powered by clean renewable energy.feedback

Julien Vincent

The first step to back up that commitment is to stop expanding the carbon fuel economy. We're not talking small projects, we're talking about opening up one of the largest offshore oil bases in Norway, or a new gas field in PNG. I think it's definitely become a lot harder for banks to fund coal because it's so clearly connected to climate change and other environmental and social issues.feedback

Lizzy Guyton

Governor Baker is a strong supporter of women's health and believes the commonwealth has a responsibility to ensure access to the important health care services offered by Planned Parenthood in all corners of our state. The administration is prepared to fund these services should the federal government pursue changes that would block care for women and families here in Massachusetts.feedback

Theresa May

India, our Commonwealth partner, is one of the world's largest spirits markets. But within the EU, Scotch whisky faces a tariff of 150 percent for selling to India. And Scotch whisky, the world's preeminent spirit has just a one percent share of the Indian market. I am determined that we should do better than that for our key industries.feedback

Nicholas Colas - ConvergeX

In the near term, equities are fine because there's a lot of enthusiasm behind it. Is it sustainable? That's the ultimate question. It depends 100 percent on what happens in Washington, how much of the Trump agenda gets through and at what speed.feedback

Michael Yoshikami - Destination Wealth Management

My first reaction is it makes me very nervous. It is always a great contra indicator when enthusiasm is too high or pessimism is too low, so it does concern me. The difference between this and the dot-com bubble is while valuations are probably stretched, I don't think they're so far off that you can necessarily say it's irrational exuberance. I would say it's more pure exuberance.feedback

Nicholas Colas - ConvergeX

You can totally understand why this is where it is considering the market action. What's hard about interpreting it against 30 years of history is you have a very unusual period in economic and political history now, so you have to throw out the usual rulebook.feedback

Brad McMillan

In the short term, I'm not worried. In the longer term, absolutely, this scares the heck out of me. The only other time we've come close [to this CAPE level] was 2007. Every time we've been at or above the current level, we've seen a significant market pullback.feedback

Michael Yoshikami - Destination Wealth Management

Five percent (down) is kind of a given on any given day. A 10 to 15 percent drop could occur. In fact, I would actually be surprised if it did not occur this year, which is not to say I'm negative on equities. There's still a lot of buying pressure kind of sitting on the sidelines.feedback

Brad McMillan

Right now there's no reason to panic. We're moving into a moment that could be equivalent to boom times, and that's wonderful and it feels great. But it also raises the risks. You have to be cautious of those risks even as you're enjoying the good times.feedback

Charlie Baker

Solar is an important part of our ever expanding clean energy economy in Massachusetts, supporting thousands of high-skilled careers across the Commonwealth. Through the continued development of solar incentive programs, Massachusetts is positioned to double the amount of solar for half the cost to ratepayers and maintain our position as one of the best states in the country for energy diversity.feedback

Gareth Aird - Commonwealth Bank of Australia

The Reserve Bank cut rates twice last year, in May and August, and I think the reaction that we saw in the housing market off the back of those cuts really caught them by surprise. They cut the interest rate because inflation printed a lot lower than they expected but then we saw the housing market really kick off. There's plenty of spare capacity here in the economy. I doubt we're going to see a material pickup in wages or inflation.feedback

Tim Lawlaess - CoreLogic

With inflation consistently tracking below the RBA's target range for almost three years, it's likely that the heat in the housing market is one of the primary reasons why the cash rate hasn't moved lower in an attempt to stimulate spending and push inflation higher.feedback

Maura Healey

Harm to our institutions, our citizens, and our businesses is harm to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The President's executive order is a threat to our Constitution. Rather than protecting our national security, it stigmatizes those who would lawfully emigrate to our state.feedback

William Galvin

With the risk of the Department of Labor's Fiduciary rule being dismantled, it is crucial that the states step in to fill this void. The Securities Division and I intend to do that by vigilantly policing this area to protect retirees, and I would also caution Washington not to dismantle Labor's rule and abandon mom and pop investors.feedback

Terry McAuliffe

It is the Governor's responsibility to ensure that the laws of the Commonwealth are properly carried out unless circumstances merit a stay or commutation of the sentence. After extensive review and deliberation, I have found no such circumstances.feedback

William Galvin

This case represents a classic example of a shell game of moving the money from one investor to another with some left over to fatten the coffers of the money manager.feedback

Vassili Serebriakov - Crédit Agricole

The hope is for a pivot back toward the Trumponomics agenda, which was three key themes: tax reform, deregulation, and infrastructure spending.feedback

Omer Esiner - Commonwealth Foreign Exchange

The wild card here is if Trump sounds a protectionist, anti-immigration, anti-strong dollar tone. And if we get that, there is substantial risk for the dollar.feedback

Leighton Ku

Repealing key parts of the ACA could trigger massive job losses and a slump in consumer and business spending that would affect all sectors of state economies.feedback

Sara R. Collins

The immediate and most visible effect of ACA repeal would be the loss of coverage and access to care for millions of people who have gained insurance because of the law. This study points to even larger potential economic effects that would be detrimental to the health and well-being of millions more.feedback

Tim Seymour - Triogem Asset Management

Taking risk right out of the gate just because things have gone so well isn't necessarily how you want to play this.feedback

Brad McMillan

You want to bet on the American consumer. We're seeing wage growth continue to rise. We're seeing job growth doing very well.feedback

Scott Wren

They're going to take a long time to refine, debate, implement and then finally have an effect on the economy.feedback

Anita Brody

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has committed a grave miscarriage of justice in convicting Dennis and sentencing him to die for this crime.feedback

David Blumenthal

I think this is a really perplexing point. I think it's something that those of us in this field have to think about and try to understand because there clearly is a disconnect between people benefiting from this particular program and their political perceptions about which candidates they want to support.feedback

Scott Morrison

Thorough evaluation of final private sector bids received showed that it would not deliver net financial benefit for the Commonwealth.feedback

Brian McMonagle

To come up with the required showing of a 'signature', the commonwealth reaches for a cliché: a giant in the entertainment industry using his power to take advantage of young aspiring actresses. Even if proven . . . the age-old 'casting couch' is not unique to Mr Cosby.feedback

Richard Scalone - TJM Brokerage

Commodities are up across the board. That helps emerging market currencies and commonwealth currencies.feedback

Philip Morgan

This is a big deal. There's not a better indicator of well-being than life expectancy. The fact that it's leveling off in the U.S. is a striking finding.feedback

Steven Miunchenberg

The amount of (margin) they're making on lending is the tightest it's been ever. In that context I think the banks are trying to adjust some of the pricing to reflect the realities of the costs in the market.feedback

Scott Morrison

To help better protect Australia's revenue base and ensure that companies are paying the right amount of tax on their activities in Australia the government will conduct a review into the operation of the Petroleum Resource Rent Tax (PRRT), crude oil excise and associated Commonwealth royalties.feedback

David Blumenthal

The U.S. spends more on health care than any other country, but what we get for these significant resources falls short in terms of access to care, affordability and coordination.feedback

Michael Weitzman

There are widespread misconceptions that hookah is a safer alternative to cigarettes. Smoking hookahs at home can be terribly dangerous for the smoker but perhaps more importantly, for children and other people living in the home.feedback

Thomas Eissenberg

Hookah smoking has been increasing in the U.S. and worldwide for the past decade. Even when the smoke has passed through water, which makes it cooler and easier to inhale, that smoke still contains many of the same carcinogens as cigarette smoke. If you are using hookah at home, you are putting yourself and all members of your family at risk for tobacco-caused disease.feedback

Ian Narev - Commonwealth Bank of Australia

Bank profitability at the moment is not quite what it was a few years ago. We are in an unprecedented world of low interest rates and inflation.feedback

David Ellis - Morningstar

The margins are under pressure. Volume growth is okay so banks including CBA have to reduce their expense growth to make sure there is a modest increase in profits.feedback

Michael Weitzman

Hookah smoking, especially in the home, has the potential to be profoundly dangerous to the smoker, children, pregnant women, and all individuals who reside in or visit such homes.feedback

Gerald Pappert

Plaintiffs waited until eighteen days before the election to bring this case. ... Were the Court to enter the requested injunction, poll watchers would be allowed to roam the Commonwealth on election day for the first time in the Election Code's seventy-nine year history -- giving the Commonwealth and county election officials all of five days' notice to prepare for the change.feedback

Brad McMillan

I'm going to be paying more attention to the jobs report this Friday. The only way the election is important is if Mr. Trump gets elected. Then we have to come to grips with (how his policy plays out).feedback

John Bredemus - Allianz

The next two weeks are difficult because we have an election coming up and markets seem to be very complacent. I think the markets have decided on a winner, and while volatility has clearly picked up recently, it is difficult to determine if it is being driven by election uncertainty or economic data. Recent news about better growth in the U.S. and abroad, especially China, has pushed bond yields higher.feedback

Brad McMillan

There's a lot of fear and there's a lot of angst and there's a lot of uncertainty. Once the election is over, people are going to feel better regardless of the outcome.feedback

David Radley

As far as families are concerned, it's still hitting them. It doesn't, to an average family, feel like [insurance costs are] growing slowly. They're still facing a bigger burden than they did a few years ago.feedback

Patrick Toomey

I don't think my constituents care that much how one person is going to vote. They're gonna make their own decision, all across the commonwealth, about who they're going to support and who they're not going to support. I think they care much more about whether I've got policies that are gonna help grow this economy, whether I've got policies that are gonna help keep us safe, and that's the contrast on which they'll make their decision.feedback

Michael Eidel - Commonwealth Bank of Australia

We strive to stay at the forefront of disruptive technologies to understand how they can be used to enable greater efficiencies and solve the real world challenges our customers face. The interplay between blockchain, smart contracts and the Internet of Things is a significant development towards revolutionising trade transactions that could deliver considerable benefits throughout the global supply chain.feedback

Terry McAuliffe

I am pleased that the court has agreed with the request to extend Virginia's voter registration period after unprecedented web traffic prevented many people from completing their registrations online before the original deadline. The Commonwealth will fully comply with the court's order and extend our registration process online, in person and through the mail.feedback

Ian Narev - Commonwealth Bank of Australia

We never intended and we were very clear about this at the start, for those repriced deposits to continue indefinitely.feedback

James Wiggins - Morgan Stanley & Co. International

The securities-based loan accounts were opened only after discussing the product with each client and obtaining their affirmative consent. These accounts are valuable to clients providing access to low-cost liquidity whenever they choose to access it.feedback

William Galvin

This complaint lays bare the culture at Morgan Stanley that bred the high-pressure effort to cross-sell banking products to its brokerage customers without regard for the fiduciary duty owed to the investor. This contest was relatively local, but the aggressive push to cross-sell was company wide.feedback

Dieter Adams

The current exchange rate means that the competitive position of New Zealand manufacturers and primary exporters is seriously affected.feedback

Jacob Leibenluft

On the other hand, Donald Trump's proposals would strip coverage away from many more people, including low-income families and those who are already struggling with health problems. That said, there were clearly some faulty assumptions made in this analysis that over-inflated the cost of the plan. Other independent estimates have set the cost vastly lower.feedback

Doug Holtz-Eakin

You could quibble about some of the modelling, but directionally I think it's right.feedback

Sara R. Collins

The people who would actually gain coverage tend to have higher incomes.feedback

John Coates - International Olympic Committee

We believe this would be possible given the existing venues and infrastructure spread throughout the entire Council of Mayors area of south-east Queensland. The current venues centered on Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast would be boosted by the additional venues being built as part of the 2018 Commonwealth Games.feedback

Terry McAuliffe

We are strongly encouraging everyone in Virginia to prepare for the possibility of damaging winds, downed trees, power outages and flooding in much of the Commonwealth.feedback

David Blumenthal

The sickest patients have the highest medical spending but cannot reliably get the health care they need, even though they have insurance. This is a sign that our health-care system is failing its most vulnerable patients.feedback

Grant Williamson - Hamilton Hindin Greene

We might get this a bit in the reporting season - where expectations have just got well ahead of how these companies are performing.feedback

Chris Weston

The composition of the result was a little bit disappointing.feedback

Bill Shorten

If I have to make a choice between keeping Ian Narev or keeping the Australian people and the Australian economy improving, I will choose the Australian people and the Australian economy every time.feedback

Ian Narev - Commonwealth Bank of Australia

At CBA, we are cognizant of the combined impact of weaker demand, strong competition and increasing regulation. An ongoing focus on productivity and credit quality will be important. But we remain positive about Australia's economic prospects.feedback

Gabriel Petek - S&P Global

In our view, Pennsylvania is not well-positioned for a recession given the depletion of budget reserves and elevated fixed costs. While several years have passed since the official end of the last recession, slow economic growth has not kept pace with growing expenditures, and the commonwealth has continuously enacted structurally imbalanced budgets.feedback

Jason Garrett

It smells like something is rotting. We don't have an idea of how long this event will last.feedback

Junichi Ishikawa - IG Securities

The dollar could suffer a sudden fall, with the Dow possibly falling any time now following days of successive record highs.feedback

Junichi Ishikawa - IG Securities

The dollar continues to benefit from the strength in U.S. equities, which have gone a head above their global peers and are attracting money thanks to high dividends, with strong earnings also helping. This has resulted in 'risk on', sustaining the dollar's rise against the yen.feedback

Bill Gentry - Risk Management

It is still going to get hot next week but ... the extended pattern is not as intimidating as it was yesterday.feedback

Madeleine Donlan - Commonwealth Bank of Australia

Early harvest activity has indicated Russian yields are even better than anticipated. Russia's winter wheat output is expected to be a record this year, as are Russian exports. U.S. wheat will face plenty of competition in the season ahead.feedback

John Kasich

I'm a 62-year-old gay man who came out to both of my parents at 19. And I've been gay for 45, over 40 years. Gay people are human beings and not a lifestyle choice. Please respond without prayer being an answer.feedback

John Whitbeck

Mercy requires that we as Virginians be a commonwealth of second chances. But there are limits. yet he chose not to. His decision to issue a blanket restoration, without regard to the nature of the crimes committed doesn't speak of mercy. Rather, it speaks of political opportunism.feedback

David Cameron

In this modern Elizabethan era in which so much around her has changed, Her Majesty has been steadfast, a rock of strength for our nation, for our commonwealth and on so many occasions for the whole world. She is our queen and we could not be more proud of her. Happy birthday, Your Majesty and long may you continue to reign over us all.feedback

Tyree Blocker

No actions by a small group of individuals can ever undermine a century of tradition built by our troopers and I am confident that those graduating in March will continue to build on our proud traditions and serve the Commonwealth with the utmost honor, integrity, and trust.feedback

Queen Elizabeth

At this meeting, the Commonwealth will be charged with demonstrating leadership, often in practical ways, on an agenda of global issues and drawing on a distinctive contribution of our members.feedback

Tony Abbott
