Representational image.PixabayThe bulls are on the rampage on the Street revved up by foreign buying and the brightening prospects of the return to power of Prime Minister Narendra Modi after the Balakot bomb run in retaliation to Pulwama attack. Sensex, the 30-scrip benchmark index of Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) surged about 1,000 points in six sessions of March in what is seen as the beginning of a long rally to close on Tuesday at 37,535 points. The broader 50-index National Stock Exhange (NSE) Nifty clocked about 400 points to close at 11,301 points.Indian rupee touched a new 2-month high on the back of strong foreign buying of both debt and equity. Market observers see renewed risk appetite in foreign institutional investors (FII), who have poured in about Rs 8,000 crores so far this month, according to a report in the MoneyControl website. FIIs sustained net inflows in February and January pumping in Rs 13,564 crores and Rs 127 crores respectively. Foreign portfolio investors (FPI) have also been supporting net inflows having brought in a net amount of Rs 11,182 crores last month.Market watchers are confident of a continued bull run this time unless there is a disastrous political turn as the rally has been broad based with strong movement in all sectors. The Nifty Bank index on Tuesday surpassed its all-time closing high of 28,320 hit on August 9, 2018, to hit a high of 28,363 in the intra-day trade, the Business Standard website said. The most active stocks on NSE were Reliance Industries (RIL), ICICI Bank, Axis Bank, Titan Company and UPL hitting their high.The bullish turn is attributed in part to the market euphoria over polls that have predicted a return of the Bharatiya Janata Party under Prime Minister Narendra Modi.The mid-and small-caps have been gaining traction among the investors after having bled for more than a year. Experts are bullish on the segment because of their favourable valuation. Prime Minister Narendra Modi addresses during a programme at Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh on March 9, 2019.IANS/PIBChandresh Nigam, managing director and chief executive officer (CEO) of Axis Mutual Fund, had told Business Standard recently: “We have seen increased flows from HNIs in the mid- and small-cap schemes in the last four-five days. Sophisticated investors are taking tactical calls on the mid- and small-cap categories. There has been sustained correction in some of these categories. Some wealthy investors see this as a good time to deploy their funds.”The bulls have also found traction in the revised notes by foreign brokerages such as HSBC, BNP Paribas and Morgan Stanley on Indian equities. HSBC recently raised its weightage on India from ‘neutral’ to ‘overweight’ and remains bullish on financial, metal, and consumer discretionary sectors in the Indian context, according to a report.”Aside from the elections, the macro backdrop is looking better in 2019 than in 2018. Inflation is low, and our economists are now looking for a rate cut in April. We expect overall GDP (gross domestic product) growth to accelerate, possibly supported by reforms (such as GST) starting to bear fruit,” Herald van der Linde, head of equity strategy for the Asia Pacific at HSBC wrote in a note along with Devendra Joshi and Prerna Garg. The global cues have also been conducive for the Indian bull run. The Asian shares have been upbeat after the European Commission’s nod for changes to a Brexit deal ahead of a vote in the British parliament. European Commission head Jean-Claude Juncker agreed to additional assurances in an updated Brexit deal with British Prime Minister Theresa May on Monday, according to Reuters. The easing of trade war clouds between the US and China have also helped the global markets, reflecting the shine on Indian equities.
Fire fighters are seen trying to douse fire. Photo: Sazid HossainThe fire that broke out at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport on Friday afternoon has been brought under control, reports UNB.Director (Operation) of Fire Service and Civil Defense major Shakil said fire-fighters managed to douse the flame around 3:15 pm after around a two-hour long effort.Meanwhile, a three-member committee, headed by deputy director (Dhaka) of Fire Service headquarters Debnath Bardhan, was formed to probe the fire incident.The committee has been asked to submit its report within seven working days.Although the fire erupted at the departure lounge, it did not cause any disruption in taking off and landing of the scheduled flights, said Rezaul Karim, public relation officer of Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB).The activities at the departure lounge became normal after 4:00pm.Earlier, the fire broke out on the second floor of airport’s main building around 1:30pm.All the passengers, including hajj pilgrims, and airport, airline staffs, were evacuated soon after the fire broke out, creating panic among the people around.
Timothy SedlakA Florida man accused of trying to hack the Clinton Foundation in 2015 is expected to plead guilty on Thursday, months after he was sentenced in a related case to 42 years in prison over child pornography discovered on his computers during the probe.Timothy Sedlak, 43, is scheduled to plead guilty in federal court in Manhattan, according to court records. Prosecutors accused him in September 2015 of trying to gain access to an unnamed New York-based global charitable organisation’s network.Prosecutors have never named the organization. But a court filing obtained by Reuters said US Secret Service agents in 2015 questioned Sedlak about notes they found referencing former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and her daughter, Chelsea Clinton.Sedlak, who called himself a private investigator, told the agents he was researching whether charities were unintentionally providing funding to Islamic militant groups, and said the Clintons “came up in his research,” the filing said.The filing’s description of the Clintons matched prosecutors’ descriptions of two previously unnamed individuals who were said to be an “executive” at the charity and an “individual who has been publicly affiliated” with it.Chelsea Clinton is the vice chair of Clinton Foundation, which was founded by her father, former US president Bill Clinton. Its full name is the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation.The filing, a summary of a Secret Service agent’s interview with Sedlak, was downloaded by Reuters on Feb. 3 and soon after was replaced by a redacted version removing the Clintons’ names.A spokeswoman for Manhattan US attorney Preet Bharara and Sedlak’s lawyer declined comment. Clinton Foundation representatives did not respond to requests for comment.The investigation into Sedlak, of Ocoee, Florida, predated probes into cyber attacks on Democrats during the 2016 presidential election.US intelligence agencies in January released an assessment that Russian president Vladimir Putin ordered a covert effort through the cyber attacks to help Republican Donald Trump’s electoral chances by discrediting Clinton.Prosecutors have said that Sedlak launched about 390,000 unsuccessful attempts to gain unauthorized access to the charitable organisation’s computer network.Following his arrest, authorities discovered files on his computers containing child pornography, including a number of images depicting Sedlak himself sexually abusing a toddler, prosecutors said.Sedlak as a result was separately charged in Florida, where a federal jury in Orlando in May found him guilty on charges including that he produced and possessed child pornography. He was sentenced in August to 42 years in prison.

Mike Pompeo, R-Kan., questions Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, during the committee’s hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington on Oct. 22, 2015. Pompeo, a third-term Republican congressman from Kansas, has been offered the post of CIA director.“I am honored to have been given this opportunity to serve and to work alongside President-elect Donald J. Trump to keep America safe. I also look forward to working with America’s intelligence warriors, who do so much to protect Americans each and every day,” Pompeo said.According to his congressional biography, he graduated from West Point and served as a cavalry officer. He attended Harvard Law School, where he was an editor of the Harvard Law Review, before entering business as an executive in aerospace manufacturing and the oil industry.He served on the Energy and Commerce committee as well as the House Intelligence Committee, and was a member of the House Select Committee on Benghazi.The current CIA director is John Brennan, who joined the CIA in 1980 and was a station chief in Saudi Arabia and the chief of the national counterterrorism center.Like Flynn, Pompeo — if confirmed as CIA director — would face decisions about how much of Trump’s campaign rhetoric to attempt to implement as policy.Pompeo has been as critical as Trump of the Iran nuclear deal, for example — would the two work together to dismantle it, or focus on other ways to try to punish Tehran. Michael FlynnMandel Ngan/AFP/Getty ImagesThen-Defense Intelligence Agency Director Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn testifies before the House Select Intelligence Committee in February 2014. He was forced out of that role later that year.The brazen retired Army lieutenant general, who was also an early supporter of Trump, has been offered the position of national security adviser.“General Flynn is one of the country’s foremost experts on military and intelligence matters and he will be an invaluable asset to me and my administration,” Trump said in the transition team statement.Flynn said he was “deeply humbled and honored to accept the position as National Security Advisor to serve both our country and our nation’s next President, Donald J. Trump.”Flynn has a track record of sharp elbows inside the U.S. intelligence community, as NPR’s Tom Bowman wrote Friday. He was fired as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, the Pentagon’s military-focused spy service, after pushing to send more operatives overseas and clashing with top staffers and his ultimate bosses in the White House:“Within military circles, Flynn was a highly respected — though at times controversial — career intelligence officer. He worked his way up the ranks, including stints as the top intelligence officer for the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and as Gen. Stanley McChrystal‘s top aide in Afghanistan. …“Flynn, by then a three-star general, went on to run the Defense Intelligence Agency, the Pentagon’s military-centered spy service. But the workforce there complained he was trying to push through too many changes, including sending more employees overseas.“Flynn argued that he was trying to get the bureaucracy to be more efficient, to do more. Critics said he couldn’t run a large bureaucracy. He was forced out in 2014 after less than two years in the job.”Flynn’s return to government in a top administration post could enable him to settle any outstanding scores within the intelligence world, depending on the support he receives from the president and the way Trump structures decision-making inside his national security apparatus.During the Republican National Convention this summer, he joined in the chants of “Lock her up,” in reference to Hillary Clinton. “It was a strange position for someone who was a career military officer and a registered Democrat from Rhode Island,” Tom says.Flynn, who recently wrote a book called The Field of Fight: How We Can Win the Global War Against Radical Islam and Its Allies, has called President Obama “a liar” and has troubled some former colleagues with his partisan political work, Tom reports.The current national security adviser is Susan Rice, the former U.N. ambassador who was sharply criticized by congressional Republicans for making what she later acknowledged were “incorrect” statements after the Benghazi attack.Trump’s national security picks, including the choice of Flynn, illustrate the choices his administration will face as it translate the promises and rhetoric of the campaign into governance.For example, Flynn told NPR in August that he thought it would be impractical to impose a blanket ban on travel by Muslims from around the world to the United States. A full stop on such arrivals — which Trump later revised to a call for “extreme vetting” for those entering the U.S. — was one of Trump’s signature campaign promises. As president and national security adviser, however, Trump and Flynn must decide how much of either idea they take into the new administration and try to make into reality.Another critical issue is the U.S. relationship with Russia. Candidate Trump repeated that he wanted better ties with Russia and its president, Vladimir Putin, and for the two countries to work together in Syria to fight the Islamic State. (President Obama pursued such a deal but could not conclude one with Moscow.) Flynn’s situation is even more nuanced. He’s called Russia “an enemy” of the U.S. in his public comments and suggested in a book this year that it’s part of a global axis arrayed against the United States. But Flynn also traveled to Moscow last year as a guest of Putin for a banquet celebrating the Russian state news agency RT, part of the Kremlin’s propaganda operation targeting the West.RT quoted a description of Flynn as a ‘Russia-loving’ appointment in its headline on Friday. Jeff Swensen/Getty ImagesAlabama Sen. Jeff Sessions pledges his commitment to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump before speaking to supporters at a rally in Ambridge, Pa., on Oct. 10.Updated at 11:45 a.m. ETTrump’s selections signal that he is prioritizing loyalty as he chooses nominees for top posts — turning to people who were early and outspoken supporters of his campaign.Houston Public Media’s Coverage of Election 2016Sessions is a former U.S. attorney and current senator with lengthy experience with the Justice Department, but whose nomination for a federal judgeship was tanked by reports of racist comments. Flynn, a former lieutenant general, was pushed out of his role as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2014 after clashing with top staffers. Pompeo is a representative who served both on the House Intelligence Committee and on the Benghazi committee.The attorney general and CIA director nominees will need to be confirmed by the Senate. The national security adviser does not need Senate confirmation.Sen. Jeff SessionsThe 69-year-old Republican senator, who has been offered the position of attorney general, was one of the first lawmakers to ally himself with the Trump campaign. He embraces a forceful anti-immigration platform and a tough approach to fighting crime.Sessions “is a world-class legal mind and considered a truly great Attorney General and U.S. Attorney in the state of Alabama,” Trump said in a statement from his transition team.“I am humbled to have been asked by President-elect Trump to serve as Attorney General of the United States,” Sessions said. “My previous 15 years working in the Department of Justice were extraordinarily fulfilling. I love the Department, its people and its mission. I can think of no greater honor than to lead them.”Sessions is a former longtime U.S. attorney in Alabama who went on to serve as the top Republican member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which oversees Justice Department and FBI operations.But earlier in his career, that same committee denied him a position as a lifetime-tenured federal judge after lawyers testified he had used racially insensitive language. Sessions apologized for saying he thought the KKK was OK “until I found out they smoked pot,” describing the episode as a joke.His positions on social issues including same-sex marriage, marijuana legalization and funding for stem-cell research are conservative.As NPR’s Ailsa Chang reported earlier this year, Sessions had a controversial career as a prosecutor and allegations of racism have followed him for decades. He first rose to national attention when he prosecuted three black civil rights workers for voter fraud; a defense lawyer called it “voter persecution,” and the jury returned no convictions.The president of the NAACP called Sessions’ appointment “troubling,” while a legislative counsel at the ACLU called him “the senator with probably the most anti-immigrant, anti-refugee, anti-child record in the Senate.”Former Alabama Rep. Jo Bonner, a Republican from Sessions’ hometown of Mobile, said President-elect Trump “has supreme confidence in Sen. Sessions’ judgment, his wisdom, his character and his loyalty.”California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the committee that will review Sessions’ nomination, said in a statement:“Senator Sessions has served on the Senate Judiciary Committee for many years so he’s well aware of the thorough vetting he’s about to receive. And while many of us have worked with Senator Sessions closely and know him to be a staunch advocate for his beliefs, the process will remain the same: a fair and complete review of the nominee. While Senator Sessions and I differ on a great many issues, I am committed to a full and fair process.”The current attorney general is Loretta Lynch, the first black woman in that position (as a child, she attended civil rights rallies in the South with her parents) and the former U.S. attorney for the eastern district of New York.
Share Drew Angerer/Getty ImagesPresident Donald Trump makes a statement on the administration’s strategy for dealing with Iran, in the Diplomatic Reception Room in the White House, on October 13, 2017.President Trump has recently taken a series of what appear to be bold executive actions to reverse Obama-era policies: declining to re-certify the Iran nuclear deal, halting subsidy payments to insurance companies and setting an expiration date for the DACA immigration program. But, in so doing, he’s dumping thorny problems on a GOP-controlled Congress already struggling to rack up significant legislative accomplishments.This did not go unnoticed by one of the top Democrats in Congress. Trump “throws destructive bones to his base then tells Congress to fix it: Iran, Health care, Puerto Rico,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., tweeted Saturday.While Trump said Friday that Iran had violated “the spirit” of the 2015 nuclear deal, he didn’t pull out of the multi-nation agreement, at least not yet. Instead, he opened the door for congressional action — and that’s exactly what he’s asking for.“I am directing my administration to work closely with Congress and our allies to address the deal’s many serious flaws so that the Iranian regime can never threaten the world with nuclear weapons,” Trump said.And with that Trump dumped another item on Congress’ already very full plate.Just the night before he had announced another decision that could well require Congress to step in: halting cost-sharing subsidy payments to insurance companies. Those payments were designed to keep premiums down for low-income consumers, but Trump said they are illegal and just a gift to insurance companies.Democrats and moderate Republicans including Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida expressed dismay at the move. Both Dent and Ros-Lehtinen have already announced they do not intend to run for re-election next year.“We at the end of the day will own this. We, the Republican Party, will own this,” Dent said in an interview on CNN. “I believe his action will force us to enter into some kind of a bipartisan agreement on the cost-sharing reduction payments” to stabilize the insurance markets.Trump said stopping the payments was part of an effort to undo the Affordable Care Act.“One by one it’s going come down, and we’re going to have great health care in our country,” Trump said in a speech at the Values Voter Summit on Friday. “We are going to have great health care in our country. We are taking a little different route than I had hoped because getting Congress — they forgot what their pledges were.”Still, he said he hoped this would prompt Congress to take bipartisan action to repeal and replace Obamacare. He said Friday he wants Democrats to come to him. They aren’t. And even when it comes to Republicans, it’s not clear the president and the various factions in Congress are even remotely on the same page about how to proceed.And that’s not the only item the president wants Congress to act on. There’s also the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program for undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children. When Trump announced he would put a six-month expiration date on the program, he tweeted, “Congress, get ready to do your job – DACA!”Early on, it looked like he had reached the broad outline of an agreement with Democratic leaders in Congress, only to then release a list of hard-line demands that Democrats — and even many Republicans — won’t support.“What I want is tremendous border regulation. I want the wall. And we’re going to get other things,” Trump told Sean Hannity on Fox News. “And we’re going to see if we’re going to work something out. Now whether or not we do, I don’t know. But it would be wonderful to solve the DACA problem.”When Trump says “we” as he discusses DACA, Iran and health care, he mostly means “them.” Congress will have to do all the heavy lifting. And none of this will be easy for a GOP-controlled Congress (narrowly in the Senate) that is far from unanimity on any of these matters.“Every time you buck some issue over to their plate, you blow the place up,” said Sarah Binder, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution who specializes in Congress. “And Congress is not a well-oiled machine, so disrupting the agenda and putting more things on their lap — issues which are really wedge issues within the Republican Party … it’s almost mind-boggling to me that a president who doesn’t see himself as part of the party in Congress puts them back in that situation.”And all of these items come on top of what was supposed to be the top priority for congressional Republicans this fall: passing a tax system overhaul. In the midst of everything else, Trump has been campaigning for tax cuts and other changes to the tax code. He suggested maybe it could be a “Christmas gift” to Americans.A more likely Christmas gift could well be a shutdown showdown over must-pass government funding legislation. The current funding expires Dec. 8, and at least some of these issues could get wrapped up in negotiations.On Friday, Schumer did express optimism that at least the health care subsidies could pass that way.“I think we’re going to have a very good opportunity in the omnibus to get this done in a bipartisan way, if we can’t get it done sooner,” he said.Copyright 2017 NPR.

Sunday’s dual marks a return to the water for the Cards, who have not competed in an official race since the Sunshine State Invitational on April 6 in Sarasota. Two weeks ago, Louisville was among 21 schools impacted by the cancellation of the Clemson Invitational due to severe storms and debris on the course. Story Links Print Friendly Version The big focus was the second 1K and we didn’t get a chance to demonstrate that because of the water. We always deal with this sort of thing, so we might be in a good situation. It puts a lot of pressure on ACCs.” Live results from the dual will be available on Twitter through Michigan at @umichrowing, followed by a full recap on GoCards.com. Although the varsity eight and second varsity eight raced on Saturday morning, the regatta’s cancellation nullified the results of those races. Despite a lack of time on the water, Copeland was impressed by his team’s preparation and competitive drive. In the limited action, Copeland and his staff were able to gain some insight on the team’s performance as they look forward to returning to Lake Hartwell for the ACC Championship. “We needed a race because we’ve made a lot of gains between early April and now, and it’s good to see incremental demonstration of the gains,” said Copeland. “We did race, and the first 1K of the race was pretty fair, so we have an idea of where we were at that point. Following Sunday’s meet, the Cardinals will turn their attention toward the ACC Championship on May 17-18 at Clemson. The regatta opens with the preliminary heats on Friday evening at 5:30 p.m., followed by the grand finals on Saturday beginning at 8 a.m. “There were probably five or six different false alarms to go race, and for them to be emotionally and mentally ready to race five or six times was pretty remarkable,” said Copeland. “The fact that there was that much duress and they were always ready to race each time, that’s not something that I’ve ever seen before—a team that dialed in.” Louisville is making its seventh consecutive trip to Michigan, continuing a series that has provided multiple benefits for the program in preparation for their conference championship. The Wolverines are currently ranked No. 5 in the CRCA coaches’ poll, while both the Cardinals and Spartans received votes. Cardinals head coach Derek Copeland said that the Michigan regatta allows for his team to leave Louisville on Kentucky Derby weekend to face a nationally-ranked crew in challenging conditions following the end of the academic year. For this season, the addition of Michigan State also provides another opponent for improving the Cards’ NCAA Championship resume.
16Jan Moving Michigan Forward: A recap of Gov. Snyder’s State of the State address Gov. Rick Snyder delivers his fourth State of the State addressGov. Rick Snyder delivered his fourth State of the State address on Thursday night, highlighting the growth that has taken place in Michigan over the past three years.Snyder focused on a number of areas where Michigan has made gains, stressing the fact that when he first took office, he knew it wasn’t good enough to just change Michigan – Michigan had to be reinvented.Over the past three years, home sales have increased; home prices have gone up; the state’s population has grown in both 2012 and 2013; crime has decreased in Flint, Saginaw, Pontiac and Detroit; automotive production has increased and agricultural exports have grown by 16 percent.More than 221,000 private-sector jobs have been created since 2011 and more people are entering the workforce.From these examples – and many other ones – it is clear that Michigan is on the road to recovery, but there is still much to be done.During his address, the governor called for an additional investment in early childhood education, which is both an area that Michigan is leading the nation and an area where there is still room for improvement.A full House chamber listens to the governor’s addressThanks to a $65 million investment in the 2013-14 budget, 18,000 additional preschoolers were able to enter school for the first time, which led, in turn, to a federal grant to further support those programs. Snyder was a proponent of this additional money, and again this year, he called for another boost of $65 million to invest in our students and in K-12 education, making Michigan a no-wait state for preschoolers.The governor also focused on adoption, veterans services, blight and the scrap metal industry as areas for continued improvement, and he called on the Legislature to take a hard look at ways to create more jobs, address school truancy, provide better in-home services to our elderly and hold the federal government accountable for a balanced budget.With so many topics discussed during his hour-long address, Snyder’s fourth State of the State address commended Michigan for its accomplishments but, more importantly, challenged lawmakers to continue to move the state forward.

A specific threat that could wreak more havoc than the Great Depression. That’s why tomorrow, in an urgent broadcast event, Doug’s pulling back the curtain on his shocking warning. And revealing how to profit from it in the months ahead, in a big way. Last chance to get VIP access ends tonight. Click here now for full details. Is Now the Time to Buy Silver or Gold? Dr. Steve Sjuggerud: “One critical number will tell you if now is the perfect time to buy gold, silver, or the best precious metals stocks. This is how you get the biggest gains.” Full story here… One of America’s key industries just gave us another warning sign… Last Wednesday, stock in Macy’s (M)—the largest department store in the U.S. and an iconic American brand—plunged 15%. The next day, department store Kohl’s (KSS) fell 9%… And on Friday, high-end retailer Nordstrom (JWN) joined the bloodbath, dropping 13%. The massive selloff—which the media is calling the “Retail Wreck”—was due to terrible first-quarter results. This is the latest bad news in what’s been an extremely ugly earnings season. As you may know, earnings season is when companies tell investors if earnings grew or shrank last quarter. A strong earnings season can send stocks higher. A bad one—like we’re in right now—can cause stocks to crash. Companies in the S&P 500 are on track to show a 7.1% decline in earnings. That would mark the fourth straight quarter that earnings have fallen. That hasn’t happened since the 2008-2009 financial crisis. • Retail companies have been some of the biggest losers this earnings season… Macy’s reported a 5.6% drop in its “same-store sales” last week. This metric measures how much sales rose or fell at stores that have been open for at least a year. Because it strips out the sales bump from opening new stores, same-store sales can tell us more about the health of a company than total sales. Macy’s sales decline last quarter was its biggest since 2009. As we mentioned, Kohl’s also had a poor quarter. Its same-store sales fell 3.9%, its biggest decline since 2009. And Nordstrom reported a 1.7% decline in same-store sales. • The retail sector can tell us a lot about the U.S. economy… This industry is a reliable economic indicator. It often flashes early warning signs when trouble is ahead. It’s not hard to see why. Consumer spending makes up 67% of the U.S. economy. When the economy slows, folks will stop buying designer jeans and expensive cologne to make sure they don’t miss a mortgage payment. They’ll hold off on buying a new watch to save money for the essentials. Today, many of America’s biggest retailers are trading like we’re in a recession. Macy’s is down 56% over the past year. Nordstrom is down 51%. Kohl’s is down 48%. • We don’t think these companies will recover anytime soon, either… If you’ve been reading the Dispatch, you know we think the U.S. economy is stalling out. The signs are all around. Corporate profits are drying up. Huge companies are laying off workers by the thousands. Global trade has practically come to a standstill. A slowing economy is bad for most companies. It’s especially bad for companies that sell “want” items—or things people would like to buy, but don’t need. “Want” items are the first place people cut spending when the economy slows. They buy off the clearance rack rather than the latest fashions. Nordstrom customers are already starting to cut back. Business Insider reported last week: Comparable sales for Nordstrom’s full-price businesses fell 5.4%, including a 7.7% drop at its US department stores… While sales are plunging in Nordstrom’s full-price business, comparable sales for the company’s off-price brands, including Nordstrom Rack—which sells steeply discounting clothes and accessories—grew 4.6%. According to Investment bank Morgan Stanley (MS), Nordstrom customers aren’t the only ones changing their spending habits. Business Insider continues: “Notably, this shortfall was entirely driven by lower trips/transactions,” Morgan Stanley analysts wrote in a note ominously titled “High-End Recession.” The declines confirm a terrifying new reality for high-end retailers: Wealthy shoppers are reining in spending and, along with the rest of American consumers, refusing to pay full price for anything. • Americans aren’t spending money like they used to… Macy’s and Kohl’s both blamed their bad results on the weather. They said folks bought fewer coats and scarves due to an “unfavorably warm winter.” Companies often blame the weather or other things beyond their control when they have a poor quarter. It’s much easier to do this than admit business is bad. We aren’t buying this excuse. Retail companies have much bigger problems than a warm winter. For one, Americans aren’t spending money like they used to. Fortune reported last week: Department store operators have been hit in the past year as consumers choose to spend on smartphones and electronics, dining out and travel, and invest in assets such as vehicles and homes. • Retail giant Amazon (AMZN) is eating “brick-and-mortar” retailers alive… Amazon isn’t your traditional retailer. It doesn’t own huge stores or employ thousands of cashiers. It runs an online store where you can buy just about anything with a few clicks of a mouse. It’s also one of the world’s most dominant companies. Its sales have increased for 77 consecutive quarters. Last year, the company’s sales topped $100 billion for the first time. Amazon has changed how people shop. That’s bad news for traditional retailers like Macy’s, Nordstrom, and Kohl’s. The chart below says it all… Last quarter, earnings for department stores in the S&P 500 plunged 48%. Meanwhile, earnings for large online retailers jumped 143%. Online retailers are stealing business from companies like Macy’s and Nordstrom. Amazon is the big reason why. Regards, Justin Spittler Delray Beach, Florida May 18, 2016 We want to hear from you.

Tucker, editor of The Casey Report, warned the retail industry was in trouble in November… Retail stocks were still hot at the time. The SPDR S&P Retail ETF (XRT), which holds 99 major retailers, was up 408% since March 2009. That was more than double the S&P 500’s 203% return in the same period. E.B. said retail sales were slowing, and warned that the retail stocks would soon rollover. He also warned that problems in the retail sector would soon show up in other parts of the economy: Consumers cut back spending on mostly unnecessary items first. Pretty soon, Americans are going to stop buying steak and start buying hamburger. When the economy sours, every penny counts. Before you know it, people are pawning off all the expensive junk they bought with cheap credit since the last financial crisis. That’s one way markets unwind seven years of excess borrowing and spending. Several major American retailers have tanked since E.B. made this warning. Watch maker Fossil (FOSL) is down 21%. Department store Sears (SHLD) is down 49%. Furniture company Restoration Hardware (RH) has plunged 64%. • E.B. is still worried about the economy… He’s advising Casey Report readers to “crisis-proof” their portfolios. E.B. recommends holding cash and physical gold. A cash reserve will save you from losing money if stocks sell off. It will also prepare you for the next big buying opportunity in stocks. Owning gold is another simple way to protect your wealth. That’s because it’s the ultimate safe-haven asset. It’s served as money for centuries. It’s protected wealth through history’s worst financial crises. And gold could also make you a lot of money if stocks crash. It’s already starting to take off… This year, the price of gold has jumped 21%. It’s at its highest price since January 2015. E.B. recommends you keep 10% to 15% of your wealth in gold to protect your portfolio against a stock crash or financial crisis. • E.B. isn’t avoiding stocks completely… He recommends owning companies that “feed the masses.” E.B. likes these stocks for a simple reason: people have to eat. Unlike retailers that sell “want” items, companies that sell food can do well no matter what happens with the economy. One of those stocks, Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), is up 21% since January. E.B. thinks ADM will keep rising even if the economy continues to struggle. That said, E.B. doesn’t recommend buying the stock at current prices. He rates ADM as a Hold after its big jump. But if you want to profit from “feeding the masses,” E.B. has another stock you can buy today. It’s a world-class agricultural product company with an impressive dividend history. You probably have this company’s top brand in your pantry right now… This stock is up 14% since January. It’s also paying a 5.4% dividend yield. That’s more than double the S&P 500’s 2.1% dividend yield. You can invest alongside E.B. by signing up for The Casey Report.

As you can see, the stock has been ripping higher. It’s up 935% since March 2009. That’s more than five times the return of the S&P 500. Chris Wood, editor of Extraordinary Technology, thinks Amazon will keep rising…but that doesn’t mean you should buy it at today’s levels. Here’s Chris: I like Amazon a lot as a long-term investment. It’s the seventh largest company in the U.S. in terms of market cap. Companies this huge often have trouble growing. But Amazon is growing as quickly as a much smaller company. Still, if you’re the type of investor who hold stocks for a year or less, I’d recommend staying away from Amazon right now. The stock has been making higher highs and higher lows since late March. This indicates a clear uptrend, which is a good thing. But the stock is getting expensive… Its price-to-sales ratio is up to 2.9, which is well above its five-year historical average of 2.1. In other words, investors are paying more for each dollar of Amazon’s sales today than they have in the past. Investors are paying a “premium” even though Amazon’s sales aren’t growing as fast as they have been. Annual revenue growth over the past year was 20%. That’s well below its five-year average of 26%. Slowing sales and a high valuation aren’t the only reasons to avoid Amazon in the near term. Chris explains: Another thing to consider is insiders selling Amazon’s stock. An insider is a person who knows more about a company than the general public. Think CEOs, board members, and upper management. Insiders sell stock for a lot of reasons. They might sell to diversify their holdings, pay for medical care, or take a nice vacation. They may also sell if they think the stock is going down. Amazon insiders have sold 2.2 million shares of Amazon stock over the past year, while buying exactly zero shares on the open market. Just this month, CEO Jeff Bezos sold more than $670 million worth of Amazon stock. There’s no way to know why these insiders are dumping Amazon stock. But it’s another reason to not buy Amazon at current prices. We’ll likely get the opportunity to buy Amazon at much better prices over the next few quarters.
On Alexander’s medical practice once she returned to Charlotte: I’m sure to fill a need, a very stark…need, and to differentiate her practice, to build her practice, her caseload was largely based around gynecology, obstetrics, as well as early childhood diseases. She did treat a wide variety of these illnesses, and in fact, when she became the president of the county medical society, she spearheaded this entire campaign against hookworm, which was hugely prevalent in the South at the time and especially infected, unfortunately, children. She also later on grappled with this huge flu pandemic that swept across the South in 1918.Also there were pandemics involving malaria and typhoid as a result of the end of World War I. So she started off in gynecology, then worked into helping children and then eventually when she gained her prominent position as president of the medical society, she was able to spearhead entire campaigns branching out into what had formerly been territory entirely designated to male doctors.,This month WFDD will be taking a look at the stories of pioneering leaders in our series, “Her Voice: Revolutionary North Carolina Women.”,In the latest installment of our series “Her Voice: Revolutionary North Carolina Women,” we look at one of the first,Fifteen years before Rosa Parks refused to move to the back of the bus, another woman refused to give up her seat.,At the turn of the 20th Century, a 19-year-old African-American woman from Henderson, N.C., began building a school – the Palmer Memorial Institute – that would educate more than 1,000 black youth. Annie’s father was a doctor during the Civil War, and he had a female patient who was so embarrassed during this time period to be examined by a male doctor that she refused medical treatment, and she subsequently died. So her [Alexander’s] father decided that his daughter would go into medicine to maybe help rectify this issue. To his credit, he felt that there was a terrible choice to be made. ‘Shall I allow female patients to die out of their embarrassment, or shall I put a female into my doctor’s position and remove that embarrassment and thereby save their lives?’ So, clearly that was a noble position to take and one that was extremely novel for his generation, in the time period, to have to push his daughter to become a doctor. He benefitted a lot of people. But I wonder how much say in the matter Annie actually had. For the final installment of this month’s series, “Her Voice: Revolutionary North Carolina Women,” we go back to the 19th Century, to a town just outside of Charlotte and a time before women had the right to vote.Here we find Annie Lowrie Alexander, who would become the first licensed female medical doctor in the South. WFDD’s Bethany Chafin spoke with author and filmmaker Anna Fields about how Alexander became a pioneer in medicine.Interview HighlightsOn the beginning of Alexander’s career in medicine: On where Alexander did her medical studies: At first her father hired a tutor and then supplemented that education with his own mini medical lessons. And then at the age of only 17 she went to the Women’s Medical College in Philadelphia. She graduated there with honors in 1884 actually, and moved to Baltimore where she spent another full year teaching anatomy and interning while she was studying for her medical license. She then passed the licensing exam in Maryland. She had the highest grade in the class of 100 students of which she was the only woman. Once she took the North Carolina medical exams and passed, she became the first female doctor in the entire South. So, pretty amazing. In Charlotte there was only one hospital. And so Annie remodeled her home so that she could see patients there as well. I’m sure there were many more patients than there were hospital beds, so she remodeled the first floor of her home into essentially a hospital ward, and she would see patients actually in the rooms above. She did slowly build up her practice. She was making rounds for the people who truly could not come to her home. She would make house calls on her horse-drawn buggy…until she finally purchased an automobile in 1911. This of course was Ford’s Model T. On Alexander’s caseload and the health issues she was passionate about:

Image credit: via PC Mag Next Article Guest Writer Enroll Now for $5 In a Reddit AMA, the Microsoft co-founder voiced concern about the anonymity of cryptocurrencies, which he said can facilitate criminal behavior. 3 min read March 2, 2018 Michael Kan –shares Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates is no fan of cryptocurrencies, which he says have become a vehicle for crime, and in some cases can result in people’s deaths.During a Reddit AMA on Tuesday, Gates said the anonymity of the web means cryptocurrencies can mask money transactions. “I don’t think this is a good thing,” he said.That same anonymity can facilitate tax evasion, money laundering and terrorist funding schemes. “Right now crypto currencies are used for buying fentanyl and other drugs,” he added, “so it is a rare technology that has caused deaths in a fairly direct way.”To be clear, the anonymity isn’t perfect; for instance, law enforcement and the IRS have been using software and experts to track bitcoin transactions. Nevertheless, cryptocurrencies have certainly become a favored tool among criminals to move money.One Reddit user was quick to point out that U.S. cash can be used to buy drugs anonymously, too. But in response, Gates said: “Yes — anonymous cash is used for these kinds of things, but you have to be physically present to transfer it.”Gates is the latest famous figure to weigh in on the cryptocurrency craze, which has drawn polarizing reactions across the business and tech world. His friend billionaire Warren Buffet has also warned investors to steer clear from the digital currencies.Others are more curious. Last month, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said he was interested in studying the “positive and negative” aspects of cryptocurrency technology. Meanwhile, Asian technology firms Line and Rakuten have unveiled plans to actively dive into the market.In the same Reddit AMA, Gates revealed that he’s particularly excited about robotics and virtual assistant software.”The most amazing thing will be when computers can read and understand the text like humans do,” he said. “Today computers can do simple things like search for specific words, but concepts like vacation or career or family are not ‘understood.’ Microsoft and others are working on this to create a helpful assistant.”Gates was also asked if he’d ever run for U.S. president, to which he said no. The Microsoft co-founder said he can accomplish more as a private citizen through his foundation, which is focused on solving poverty and disease.”I do think people are expecting too much from Government,” he added. “Yes Government can do better but local groups can do a lot that government can’t — helping out in schools, reaching out to people in poverty. This is also true internationally. I would like to see this civil society sector step up a lot more.” Bill Gates Billionaire Bill Gates Is Not a Fan of Cryptocurrencies Add to Queue Fireside Chat | July 25: Three Surprising Ways to Build Your Brand This story originally appeared on PCMag Learn from renowned serial entrepreneur David Meltzer how to find your frequency in order to stand out from your competitors and build a brand that is authentic, lasting and impactful.

The underlying theme of this year’s Cannes Lions 2019 festival was the future of creativity. It was examined from all angles over the course of five days, as leaders of the industry shared ideas about emerging storytelling formats, strategies to overcome attention scarcity, and ways to more accurately and positively reflect society. Advertising shapes culture, and it was inspiring to see brand leaders demonstrate a genuine passion for purpose.We invited six leaders across Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, and YouTube to chat with our CEO Alex Collmer about a range of topics, including how creativity can be used as a force for good, how creative effectiveness can be measured, and how new storytelling formats are changing the nature of advertising by putting the consumer in control.Doing Good, Doing WellRachel Elam from the Social Good Brand Partnership team at Facebook joined Alex in a discussion about the newly launched Instagram Stories donation sticker. Non-profit organizations and the 500M+ users of Instagram Stories can now raise funds to support important causes as easily as tagging a friend. VidMob and Facebook partnered on a Father’s Day campaign whereby we created Instagram Stories ads for St. Judes, Alzheimer’s Association ASPCA, American Cancer Society, and JDRF.The Terrible Choice of which Ad to ProduceCreative-agency-vets-turned-Facebook-execs, Hope Cowan and Eric Schnabel, share their perspective on why Stories is changing everything. It lets consumers be creators and lets advertisers be playful. Ephemeral by design, stories let brands be vulnerable and take the creative risk with minimal financial risk. Thanks to Stories, Eric said advertisers no longer face a terrible choice on what to produce. Every good idea can be tested.Pitch, Play, PlungeFacebook also developed a creative framework to combat shrinking attention spans. It can be used to develop higher performance ads on Facebook and elsewhere.Creative is the #1 Determinant of Success on SNAPCreating vertical video ads is now a frictionless experience which is bringing so many new advertisers to Snapchat. Head of Global Creative, Jeff Miller, explains why AR on Snap is so unique and how keeping the camera at the core of the user experience encourages a sense of play.The Secret to HappinessSnapchat is grounded in self-expression with no judgment. With no likes or comments, you can do you. Jeff Miller explains how Snap is looking to bring that magic into the world to make it a happier place.Connecting Content to ConversationVideo is Twitter’s fastest-growing ad format, driving over 50% of revenue. Stacy Minero, Head of Content Creation, takes us through the evolution of Twitter’s video business and offers examples of how Twitter both reflects and shapes culture.A Machine will Never Create an IdeaMatthew Williams is YouTube’s Head of Creative Product Solutions and weighed in on how technology can make us more creative. The secret sauce revealed in Cannes Lions 2019 is to know when to use tech and when not to. A machine won’t ideate—that’s an exclusively human pursuit. YouTube has advanced many new self-service tools to help advertisers measure creative effectiveness and improve performance.

Provided by University of Erlangen-Nuremberg Electricity from a renewable energy source such as the sun or wind is only available when the wind blows or the sun shines, and it is extremely difficult to store any surplus electricity. New concepts are required—and researchers from the Department of Chemistry and Pharmacy at FAU are counting on chemical concepts for storing energy.In two joint projects, the scientists are exploring new ideas for using molecules to store solar energy and are investigating molecules and processes that allow energy to be stored efficiently and released in a controlled manner when required. It is even conceivable that stored chemical energy could be converted directly into electrical energy.The research is based on the so-called norbornadiene-quadricyclane storage system. Norbornadiene (NBD) and quadricyclane (QC) are hydrocarbons and have been under discussion among experts as potential candidates for storing solar energy for some time now. Under the influence of light, a reaction within the norbornadiene molecule is triggered, causing the molecule to transform into quadricyclane. The reaction produces an energy density similar to that of a high-performance battery. Thanks to this property, quadricyclane is also known as “solar fuel.”The sub-project focusing on photochemical and magnetochemical storage and the release of solar energy in strained organic compounds is led by Prof. Dr. Dirk Guldi and Prof. Dr. Andreas Hirsch. The scientists are working on producing various new groups of NBD and QC derivatives. In addition, they are systematically investigating the influence of photosensitizers and electron acceptors as well as solvents and magnetic fields within this process. The long-term goal of the researchers is to create a closed system-fuel cycle for molecular storage systems.Prof. Dr. Julien Bachmann, Prof. Dr. Jörg Libuda and Dr. Christian Papp are working together in the sub-project focussing on catalytic and electro-chemical release of solar energy stored in strained organic compounds. The scientists are developing new catalyst systems and electrodes that can be used to convert chemical energy directly into electrical energy. They intend proving the concept behind the functional principle using hybrid boundary surfaces with a suitable electronic structure, chemical structure and electrochemical stability.The results of both sub-projects could form the basis for building an energy-storing solar cell. The electricity created by solar energy could be stored intelligently and used highly efficiently thanks to intramolecular reactions. Credit: CC0 Public Domain Liquid storage of solar energy – more effective than ever before Storing solar energy is the central challenge facing energy researchers. Alongside traditional solutions such as solar cells or batteries, creative chemical concepts for storing energy are paving the way for entirely new opportunities. Intramolecular reactions are making it possible to transform solar energy and store it in a singular molecule. This may form the basis for constructing energy-storing solar cells.
