In counterpoint to the bad business behaviour topic, this one is for those who are doing the right thing.
I’ll start with Rabo Bank, received this today re their savings accounts:
While last week the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) cut the official cash rate again, we are pleased to let you know that we have not reduced our deposit interest rates . And, to provide additional support, we have increased a range of our Term Deposit rates
Details of their deposit products can be found on their website.
At Suncorp, we believe in going the extra mile for our customers. It’s about being there in times of need. But it’s also about making things easier in the everyday moments.
So you’ll find we’re right there with you, arranging finance for vital equipment like we did for the Trebbins family to help them with the drought. You’ll see us on the ground helping communities when they’ve been affected by big weather events. And recently we removed monthly account keeping fees from all deposit accounts~. That’s the Suncorp Spirit.
Locally there are a lot of small business people who are doing their very best for the community. Some are making free food, some are delivering cooked meals and all for those who need it. I’ve been really impressed.
Malaria is not caused by a virus or bacteria. It’s caused by a parasite ‘plasmodium’ infecting the blood stream.
The experts are strongly suggesting following a number of trials the drug has little prospect of being an effective treatment. (For the Virus Covid-19)
All is not lost. At least Clive can take his drug and Foundation to Africa, or PNG and do some good when the folly is realised. Per WHO malaria is responsible for 450,000 deaths globally each year, including many children.
