Let me put that in context. On a medical scale I would call it more of a slight itch than a life-threatening condition, but it is definitely persistent.EMERGING MARKETS GROWTH SLOWSHSBC knows a thing or two about emerging markets; the bank has just put out an index that says emerging markets economic activity levels have darkened. There is still growth but at a slower pace in the third quarter than previously, with Brazil, Russia and China all reporting falls in growth rates.FITCH DOWNBEAT ON CHINAFitch, the ratings agency, sounded more downbeat on China recently. The fact that ratings agencies did not cover themselves in glory at the height of the US credit boom means that they don’t want to be caught napping on China. Fitch’s central case is that China will grow on average nine per cent annually out to 2012 but it is very aware of the dangers of leverage and a flood of investment.BIG DEMAND FOR MEXICAN BONDTalking of a flood of investment, last week reached new levels of emerging markets craziness when we saw staggering demand for Mexico’s century bond. When I first saw pictures of The World in Dubai, I immediately realised that this must mean we are in a property bubble – building islands shaped like countries set out as a big map of the globe just seemed emblematic of excess. So might lending money to the Mexican government for 100 years for a six per cent yield officially mark the start of a bubble in emerging debt markets?US FED COULD BRING WALL OF CASH And of course a wall of money might be exactly what is on its way. If the US Federal Reserve decides that the US economy needs more quantitative easing in order to create jobs, then the global financial system will soon be even more awash with cash looking for a home. Many money managers have told me that it won’t be loaned to small businesses as the Fed might wish. Instead it will find its way into emerging markets. Of course if you are in this for the long term then maybe none of this really matters. SEEING A BUBBLE DOESN’T BURST ITVery few businesses tell us they know any better place than emerging markets to grow their businesses. And of course it takes more than just identifying a bubble to burst it. Just ask UK home owners who rode the property boom for years before it came apart. Some say we are still in bubble territory here, but that is a topic for another day.

New Zealand composure leads to 27th consecutive win over Wales

first_imgSunday Jun 12, 2016 New Zealand composure leads to 27th consecutive win over Wales The All Blacks scored 21 unanswered points in a dominant second half display that cancelled out the visitors’ solid first half performance. Waisake Naholo scored a brace as New Zealand won comfortably 39-21 in the end, maintaining the winning record since 1953.Wales started the better of the two sides with an early try to number eight Toby Faletau, but Julian Savea hit back, with Kieran Read and Nathan Harris also scoring for the hosts.Both teams had tries disallowed in a fascinating period of play in the second half, but Wales could not keep up with the World Champions, who aserted their dominance to take the first Test despite missing superstars Richie McCaw, Dan Carter and Ma’a Nonu, who have all moved on.“It was what we expected. Wales were fired up and it was a reminder you’ve got to work hard,” said New Zealand captain Kieran Read. “The boys had a really good attitude in the second half.”Wales coach Warren Gatland said that his players will have learned a lot up against the best.“It’s the learning you take from playing against the best team in the world and sometimes the learning takes place out in the middle. It doesn’t matter what we do on the training field and as coaches, you’ve got to be out there in the middle and experience the relentlessness that the All Blacks bring.“We feel like we get better the longer we are together. Players don’t have that many games at that level of intensity. They get to experience it a lot more than us and are familiar and comfortable with that.”Wales play a midweek game against the Chiefs on Tuesday followed by the second Test againt the All Blacks in Wellington on Saturday.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error All Blacks Related Articles 40 WEEKS AGO North vs South should be a permanent fixture… 40 WEEKS AGO Barrett could easily end up on All Blacks… 42 WEEKS AGO Future All Blacks?

Corn and Soybean Farmers say Pesticide Findings Create Confusion, Fear Among…

first_img National Corn Growers Association President Chip Bowling and American Soybean Association Chairman Ray Gaesser issued the following statement in anticipation of a second finding by the International Agency for Research on Cancer that would classify another safe, important pesticide as a probable carcinogen: “Like anyone who creates something, farmers need tools to produce a safe and healthy crop.  Today, many consumers have questions and concerns about how food is produced.  That’s why it is important to us to share information with consumers so they have a better understanding of why and how we use the different seeds and crop protection chemicals. We are concerned, however, that a pending announcement from the U.N. World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer will only lead to more confusion and concern about two widely-used herbicides that have been mainstays for farmers for decades. These two substances play an especially important role in corn and soybean farming as they allow us to manage weeds in a sustainable way. Corn ZCN21 (JUL 21) 684.50 -14.50 By Gary Truitt – Jun 2, 2015 “Farmers across the country work the land with their families and aim to pass it on to the next generation. We place a high value on the safety of the products we use and the crops we grow because we value the safety of both our families and yours. We urge IARC and all those interpreting its findings to take care: When groups with an activist agenda mislead the public on safety issues, they create confusion and panic that minimizes the time and attention that can be devoted to real health and environmental risks.” Facebook Twitter How Indiana Crops are Faring Versus Other States SHARE All quotes are delayed snapshots “While IARC may be fulfilling its narrow charge, its findings are easily misrepresented and misunderstood. Corn and Soybean Farmers say Pesticide Findings Create Confusion, Fear Among Consumers “These important herbicides – glyphosate, 2,4-D and others under review – have been the subject of hundreds of scientific studies and regulatory reviews.  Government regulatory agencies charged with protection of public health in more than 100 countries have evaluated the science and concluded that 2,4-D and glyphosate do not increase health risks when used as directed.  In fact, no government in the world considers them carcinogens. That includes U.S. EPA, the European Food Safety Authority, Health Canada and the World Health Organization (yes, the same World Health Organization that oversees IARC). “The IARC exists to review health and safety data to decide whether something could (not will or is even likely to) be carcinogenic. IARC creates confusion and unnecessary fear amongst the public by using narrowly-focused data removed from real-world situations to find almost everything that it reviews as potentially carcinogenic, including drinking coffee, using aloe vera, or working the late shift.

Dismay at five-year sentence for human rights lawyer

first_img Reporters Without Borders condemned the five-year prison sentence imposed by the Damascus criminal court today on lawyer and human rights activist Anwar Al-Bunni for signing a joint statement calling for better relations with Lebanon. Held for the past 11 months, he was found guilty of “disseminating false information weakening the nation.”“On the same day as the start of a visit by UN secretary-general Ban Ki-moon and a day after a sham election designed to maintain the Baath party’s grip on power, a compliant judicial system has passed an unacceptable sentence on Al-Bunni in order to set an example and to discourage dissident groups from pushing for democracy,” the press freedom organisation said.“Nothing has changed in Syria in recent years and President Bashar Al-Assad’s installation in 2000 did not mean a break with the previous regime,” Reporters Without Borders continued. “The authorities have closed the vice around activists and independent journalists. Al-Bunni’s conviction bodes ill for Michel Kilo and Mahmoud Issa, who are being prosecuted on the same charges. We urge the authorities to drop the charges against them.”Aged 48, Al-Bunni was arrested and taken to Adra prison near Damascus on 17 May 2006 during a wave of arrests of people who had signed the “Beirut-Damascus, Damascus-Beirut” joint statement advocating the need to “respect and consolidate the sovereignty and independence of Lebanon and of Syria as part of institutionalised and transparent relations.” Signed by more than 300 leading figures from both countries, it had been made public a week before in Beirut.Khalil Maâtouk of the Al-Bunni defence committee told Reporters Without Borders his client’s conviction was a “political decision aimed at punishing him for his human rights activism.” Al-Bunni played a key role liaising with international human rights organisations. His lawyers plan to file an appeal in the next few days. The trials of Kilo, a writer and journalist, and Issa, a Communist Party member, are due to resume on 7 May.

Gas prices evoke thoughts of better times

first_img By Jaine Treadwell For several years, that almost-like-new Hudson was the backdrop for our Easter Sunday pictures. Back then, for whatever reason, people liked to take pictures with the subjects standing by their cars. Much like people do today standing in front of their lake homes or beach houses or bass fishing boats.Since a car was the most expensive thing that we could ever purchase other than a house, I guess that made some kind of sense. But the ugliest that I ever looked was on Easter Sunday in a ruffled dress with nylon socks and a hat on my head. Put me up against the bloated frog car and that was a captured moment that would be an embarrassment to my dying day.But, like Daddy, a bright, shiny new car is not something that I desire… or have.

She has a dent or two but she still gets about 40 miles to the gallon on the road. And, with gas prices on the daily rise, $3.34 and rising, she looks better every day.On Thursday, for only a couple of times in our relationship, Maybelle guzzled down nearly $30 of gas, ethanol and all.“What kinda mileage you get on that Honda?” the man at the next pump asked enviously. Funny about the things that we inherit from our parents. The color of our eyes and hair. Small bones, big bones. Hook noses and thin lips. Ill tempers and winning smiles. Stuff like that.And, then things like the trait that I inherited from my daddy – an allergy to new automobiles. The dollar signs in his eyes caused him to go blind, as they do me.Daddy couldn’t see paying hard earned dollars for a brand new car when it would be a used car as soon as you drove it off the lot. So, we never had a brand new car. The closest we came was a dark green Hudson that looked like a bloated frog on its last leap.

We’re gettin’ robbed by the oil companies just the same as if they had a gun to our heads. I can remember when gas was 50 cents a gallon. You remember that?”Fifty cents a gallon. How well I remember.Leaving Mama’s house one afternoon, Sis gave out of gas as she rolled out onto Main Street and needed a push to Douglas Ingram’s fillin’ station just up the street.I pulled my Mercury station wagon behind her Falcon and nudged it slowly forward to the gas pumps. All the time I was looking at my gas gauge and knowing that I’d be lucky to get Sis to the pump before I drained my tank.As we eased into the station, Douglas let out a whoop of laughter that could be heard all the way to town.“I can’t believe this. You’re pushing her and I’ll bet you don’t have a nickel’s worth of gas yourself,” he said, slapping his thigh and his belly jiggling in laughter.I was not about to let “Tubby” know that he was right. So, after Sis got a dollar’s worth of regular, I sidled up and leaned in the car window. “Follow me up to the Gulf station and, if I give out, push me.”She nodded and we pulled off leaving Tubby in his merriment.I didn’t give out of gas. I made it to the Gulf station and splurged. I got two gallons of gas at 50 cents a gallon. And Sis and I were both still riding on those same tanks of gas when we went to back to Mama’s for Sunday dinner, five days later.Yep, I remember the good ol’ days when gas was 50 cents a gallon but I wouldn’t mind one bit to pay $4 a gallon for gas if Daddy could be here rumbling around in an orange pickup truck with a white door and Mama was in the kitchen cooking Sunday dinner.

Teen arrested over ‘ethnic cleansing’ threat that closed Charlottesville schools for 2 days

first_imgogolne/iStock(CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.) — A 17-year-old male was arrested over race-based threats against the Charlottesville school system, local police say.The Virginia city’s public schools were closed for two days — Thursday and Friday — in light of the threats that were made online.  Charlottesville police announced Friday they had arrested a juvenile in connection to the online threats. He is being charged with one felony and one misdemeanor.The police gave few details about the threats in question, announcing only that they were alerted to the “biased-based language targeting specific ethnic groups” at the public high school on Wednesday afternoon.At a subsequent news conference, Charlottesville City Schools superintendent Rosa Atkins said that the teen was not a student at the school.She said that the individual was “a person who is not a part of the Charlottesville school system and community” and added that he made the “hateful threat… under the guise of being a Charlottesville high school student.”Rashall Brackney, the chief of the Charlottesville Police Department, said at the news conference that the threats “referenced ethnic cleansing.”The entire public school system — which includes seven elementary schools, one middle school, one high school and one education program for young patients at the University of Virginia Children’s Hospital — was closed on Thursday and Friday.“We do not tolerate hate or racism. The entire staff and School Board stand in solidarity with our students of color — and with people who have been singled out for reasons such as religion or ethnicity or sexual identity in other vile threats made across the country or around the world. We are in this together, and a threat against one is a threat against all,” the school board said in a statement announcing the closure. This is not the city’s first brush with race-based issues. Charlottesville was the site of the deadly Unite the Right rally in 2017 where groups of white supremacists and counter protesters clashed on the streets.Atkins said that the schools will be open on Monday.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

DEBT bombshell: Property industry owes government £2.42 billion

first_imgThe eye watering amounts of money lent by Chancellor Rishi Sunak to the property industry during the pandemic has been revealed within the latest Covid loans data.It reveals the total cost of the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS) and Bounce Back loans scheme paid to the ‘real estate sector’.Both schemes have provided financial support to businesses across the UK that are losing revenue and seeing their cashflow disrupted as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak.This includes all the services related to managing, buying, selling and renting residential and commercial property including land.Covid loansSome £204 million has been given to companies operating in these property industry sectors under CIBLS, and have come via 1,001 loans. But £2.21 billion in Bounce Back loans have also been distributed via 63,000 loans. This gives a total of £2.42 billion that companies, including many estate agencies, will have to pay back as the Covid loans hangover kicks in.Small Business Minister Paul Scully (pictured) says: “Throughout this crisis, we have backed business of all sizes in every corner of the UK.“The schemes put in place by the government-owned British Business Bank have provided some much-needed breathing space for businesses as they deal with the challenges posed by coronavirus.“Government support has helped firms right across Britain, not just in keeping businesses going but now enabling thousands to bounce back in a safe, Covid-secure manner.”The CBIL and Bounce Back loans have been provided through the government-owned own British Business Bank.Read more about how CBILS and Bounce Back loans work.British Business Bank Covid Loans bounce bank loans Chancellor Rishi Sunak CBILS December 18, 2020Nigel LewisOne commentJames Gibbs, Gibbs Gillespie Gibbs Gillespie 18th December 2020 at 1:04 pmBearing in mind the ££millions paid in tax over the years, its good to see the Gov’t helping out.
