Stocks slip but remain on track for another winning week

first_imgNEW YORK — Stocks slipped in Friday morning trading, as falling oil prices dragged down energy companies, but the S&P 500 remained on track to close out its third straight winning week following a brutal December.KEEPING SCORE: The S&P 500 was down 14 points, or 0.6 per cent, at 2,582, as of 10 a.m. Eastern time. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 155, or 0.6 per cent, to 23,846, and the Nasdaq composite lost 44, or 0.6 per cent, to 6,942.CRUDE CALL: Energy stocks in the S&P 500 fell 1 per cent for the largest loss among the 11 sectors that make up the index. Exxon Mobil, Chevron and ConocoPhillips all dropped more than 1 per cent.Benchmark U.S. crude oil fell 81 cents, or 1.5 per cent, to $51.75 per barrel and on pace to break a long winning streak. Oil has climbed for nine straight days, as it recovered a portion of sharp losses from prior months when worries flared about weakening demand and too much supply.Brent crude, the international standard, sank $1.07 to $60.61. If it remains down, it would be the first drop for oil in two weeks.2019 RELIEF: The S&P 500 has been clawing back gains since running to the edge of what traders call a “bear market,” when it dropped 19.8 per cent between setting a record in September and a low on Christmas Eve. Stocks have climbed on soothing words from the Federal Reserve about the future path of interest rates, plus hopes that the U.S.-China trade dispute may ease. That’s helped to at least paper over worries about slowing growth for corporate earnings and the possibility of a looming recession.Even with Friday’s weak opening, the S&P 500 is on pace for a 1.9 per cent gain this week. It would be the third consecutive winning week for the index, its longest since August. Not only that, the last three weeks of gains have all been of at least 1.8 per cent. If that holds, it would be the longest such streak since 2001.US-CHINA TALKS: Talks between American and Chinese negotiators may have ended without significant breakthroughs, but traders are choosing to focus on the positives. The fact that talks lasted a day longer than planned, conciliatory statements from both sides and the possibility of higher-level talks in the near future are driving gains in Europe and Asia. In December, U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese leader Xi Jinping agreed to a 90-day tariffs cease-fire, for negotiators to soothe tensions that have unsettled trade.MARKETS ABROAD: In Asia, Japan’s Nikkei 225 index jumped 1 per cent, the Kospi in South Korea rose 0.6 per cent and the Hang Seng in Hong Kong gained 0.5 per cent. In Europe, France’s CAC 40 dropped 0.6 per cent, and Germany’s DAX lost 0.6 per cent. The FTSE 100 in London fell 0.4 per cent.INTEREST RATES: The yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell to 2.68 per cent from 2.73 per cent late Thursday.The Associated Presslast_img read more

Spare a thought for the poor and the needy says Sanjay Mitra

first_imgKolkata: Union Defence secretary Sanjay Mitra on Saturday urged the management students of International Management Institute (IMI), Kolkata, to contribute towards making the life of the poor and deprived in the county better. “As alumni of this prestigious school, the array of possibilities for carving out a successful career is waiting for you. By all means make money, get rich, be successful but somewhere in some corner of your mind, do keep a thought of how your achievements can translate into contributing towards making the life of the poor and needy better,” Mitra said, addressing the 7th Convocation of IMI, Kolkata, on Saturday.

You, with your intellect and training, can bring on board the much-needed competence and balance to the field of public administration, thus becoming a part of the nation building process. I urge you to consider this as an option in your endeavours,” he said. 125 students of the premier management institute that includes 49 girls received their PGDM at the Convocation. Arindam Banik, director of IMI Kolkata, spoke about the institute’s growing number of international collaborations with business schools in France, China and Finland. “We have received 3,500 applications in PGDM from 29 states across India which clearly proves the growing popularity of the institute,” Banik maintained.last_img read more

Security Council approves structure of UNAfrican peacekeeping force in Darfur

“The Security Council notes that agreement between the African Union and the United Nations on this joint report is an important development in the comprehensive approach to the peace process in Darfur,” the 15-member body declared in a statement read out by its May President, Zalmay Khalilzad of the United States.The new mission will be the final phase in a three-step process in which the UN is supporting and enhancing the existing but under-resourced AU peacekeeping mission to Darfur, known as AMIS. Most of the troops in the hybrid force will be African. As part of the first phase, known as the “light support package,” the UN handed over medical support items ranging from a fully equipped ambulance to pharmaceutical products such as drugs and vaccines to AMIS. The UN and AU have stepped up their peacemaking efforts over the past year amid mounting international concern at the situation inside Darfur, where more than 200,000 people have been killed and at least 2 million others forced to flee their homes since 2003. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has described Darfur as the scene of the world’s worst humanitarian crisis and the conflict between Government forces, allied Janjaweed militias – notorious for their attacks on civilians – and rebel groups has threatened to spill into neighbouring Chad and the Central African Republic (CAR). 25 May 2007The Security Council today called for the immediate implementation of a joint report of the United Nations and the African Union (AU) that sets out the mandate and structure for the planned hybrid UN-AU peacekeeping mission for the violence-wracked Darfur region of Sudan. read more

Libya UN envoy calls for end to fighting in Benghazi urges political

The Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Libya, Bernardino León, has condemned the escalating hostilities in the country’s eastern city of Benghazi and the heavy toll being felt by the area’s civilians, the United Nations mission in the country confirmed today. In a press release issued earlier this morning, Mr. León, who also heads the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), deplored the repeated shelling of residential areas in the city while reiterating his belief that “there can be no military solution to the conflict.” The fighting in Libya has provoked a growing displacement crisis within the country with the number of people displaced almost doubling from an estimated 230,000 last September to more than 434,000, according to the UN’s refugee agency. The largest bloc of internally displaced, some 105,000 people, is located in Benghazi, where the UN has been working with the municipality, as well as local and international NGOs to distribute items to some 6,000 of the most vulnerable IDPs between March and June. Meanwhile, the violence is also adding to the mounting list of casualties. This week alone, noted UNSMIL, at least 10 fatalities were reported among civilians in Benghazi including a number of children. “Coming at a time of successful reconciliation and ceasefire efforts at different localities in the country, and as the political dialogue among Libyan stakeholders was making major progress, it is high time for Benghazi which has suffered for too long to enjoy peace,” the UNSMIL press release continued. “A vast majority of the Libyan people want an immediate end to the conflict. The Special Representative reiterates his conviction that a political agreement through dialogue is the best hope for achieving peace across Libya.” Mr. León also reminded all parties that attacks against civilians were prohibited under international humanitarian law and could constitute war crimes. To that point, he called on all parties “to cease immediately all indiscriminate attacks.” read more

Pet owners urged be wary over Easter as experts warn of poisoning

first_imgPet owners urged be wary over Easter as experts warn of poisoning risks Some traditional Easter treats and gifts can be dangerous to animals. Thursday 18 Apr 2019, 1:08 PM By Stephen McDermott Image: Shutterstock/Litkouskaya Veranika Apr 18th 2019, 1:08 PM IRISH PET OWNERS have been urged to be wary of hidden dangers in the home this Easter weekend.Pet specialist retailer Petmania has warned how some traditional Easter treats and gifts can be dangerous to animals, including chocolate, hot cross buns and even flowers.The company has reminded owners that chocolate is particularly poisonous to both cats and dogs and can leave them feeling extremely ill.To avoid this, it says that Easter eggs should be kept out of reach and that children should not feed their pets any chocolate.Hot cross buns should also be kept out of reach as they present a similar hazard to cats and dogs, with the raisins and sultanas in them so toxic that they can cause severe kidney failure.And perhaps surprisingly, spring flowers such as lillies and daffodils can also be poisonous to pets.Dogs or cats who like digging in the garden are particularly at risk, as eating the bulbs or flowers can make pets sick, while those who drink water from a vase with flowers can also become unwell.Petworld says owners of pets who accidentally ingest any of these substances should contact a vet who can advise on whether any attention is required.Owners are reminded to keep the number of their vet handy so that if they suspect their pet is in trouble, they can get them medical assistance as soon as possible.  https://jrnl.ie/4598351 Short URL Image: Shutterstock/Litkouskaya Veranika 13 Comments Share45 Tweet Email5 17,235 Views Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Private donations help fund new Oregon city homeless shelter

first_imgPORTLAND — An Oregon city homeless shelter has opened with assistance from private sector donations, officials said.The Harbor of Hope River District Navigation Center opened Monday in Portland, The Oregonian/OregonLive reported Monday.Developer Homer Williams raised private funds to help cover the $3.5 million construction costs of the tent-like structure. The donations included about $3 million from Columbia Sportswear CEO Tim Boyle.Transition Projects will operate the city shelter, which can serve up to 100 people and will be open daily around the clock.The Joint Office of Homeless Services of Multnomah County and Portland is expected to fund the first-year operating budget, which officials estimate will cost at least $1 million for staff, programming and day-to-day needs at the shelter.“We have in our city a humanitarian crisis,” Williams said at the opening. “Today, this is a step on a very, very long journey.”Williams and his nonprofit organization, Harbor of Hope, initially promised the shelter would be entirely funded by private donors. But by the time he raised the $3.5 million officials had estimated would be necessary for the project, the cost had doubled.Harbor of Hope broke ground last April on land donated by Portland’s urban renewal agency, which will retain ownership of the property. The city waived permit fees for the project.last_img read more

Vancouver City Council told opioid deaths fall in Clark County

first_imgThe latest report from Vancouver’s contracted ambulance company contained a bright spot: Opioid overdoses in the region appear to be dropping so far in 2019 compared with the year prior.During an annual report from American Medical Response, or AMR, Dr. Lynn Wittwer, Clark County medical program director, reported that ambulance first responders reported 243 possible opioid calls in 2018. From January to June 2019, that number dropped to 76 calls — on track for far fewer opioid overdose responses this year.“This year, we’re less than half, to this date. Things are possibly improving out there,” Wittwer said.That’s not true of the rest of the state, where the number of EMS opioid responses are on track to surpass last year. Washington’s first responders have logged 3,221 opioid overdoses as of June. If that rate continues, 2019’s opioid responses will exceed 2018’s total of 5,547 calls.Clark County is bucking statewide opioid death trends, too. In 2017 — the most recent available data — Washington’s rate of opioid overdose deaths hit 9.6 per 100,000 people. The county’s rate was a little better, with 7.3 overdose deaths out of 100,000 people.Wittwer partially credits the drop to the increasing availability of Naloxone, a drug that when administered immediately can counteract the effects of opioids and pull a user’s body back from the edge of a fatal overdose.last_img read more

Bielsa was asked if he was going to spy on Derby

first_imgThe Leeds manager was fined for spying on Derby County this season in the English Championship, and today a reporter asked if he was going to repeat this action.Early this season in the English Championship a controversial decision by Leeds United’ boss Marcelo Bielsa made headlines: he had told a member of his staff to spy on Derby County before the match between the two sides.Now both teams are set to play each other again in the Playoffs to see who will get promoted to the Premier League.And today he was asked by a reporter if he would spy his opponents once again.“You know that it’s a crime to spy? Do you know that?” he answered obviously not amused by the question according to Sky Sports.Danny CowleyCowley explains why he changed his mind about Huddersfield Manuel R. Medina – September 9, 2019 Last week Danny Cowley rejected the chance to coach Huddersfield Town in the English Championship, but today he accepted saying it was a good opportunity.“When you have a level of ignorance and you work as a journalist, when you have the right to ask questions, when you’re lying in your answers, when you don’t assume the irony and you keep telling me that you don’t know if spying is a crime or not, you deserve a response without any content.”“You make your question knowing that observing an opponent is now sanctioned. You know this perfectly and that’s why you ask this question,” he added.“Then you deny the fact that you know the answer and you know I received a sanction because of it. That’s why I don’t understand that question.”“Is it a joke? If it was a joke I didn’t understand it. It’s not that I don’t have a sense of humor. It’s that you’re not funny,” Bielsa concluded.last_img read more

Scaloni fears Messis shadow will affect young players

first_imgAhead of the upcoming Copa America in Brazil, manager Lionel Scaloni is afraid of how Lionel Messi’s presence can affect young players.Now that the nightmare of this final stretch of the season is over for Lionel Messi, the Argentine player has to deal with manager Lionel Scaloni.The coach is actually working hard to get the best possible squad for the upcoming Copa America, which is the next target on Messi’s mind.However, getting a good result will prove quite complicated for the whole squad.The old generation left but the new one that’s coming is still trying to get Messi in there somehow, but Scaloni doesn’t think it’s such a great idea.The Argentine manager confessed that many of the players who are new in the national team could have a hard time adapting to the star.People like Giovanni Simeone, Lautaro Martinez, and even Paulo Dybala have proven they are not on the level that Messi has produced throughout his whole career.All the complaints about the Barcelona star not living up to the expectations of people are more related to the teammates that usually surround him. Leo himself declared recently that the new generation arrived too quickly.However, this is not going to stop Leo from trying to win a trophy for Argentina before he hangs up his boots.Scaloni has doubts about Messi’s role in his new squad.During the time that Leo Messi was on hiatus after the 2018 World Cup, manager Lionel Scaloni was actually doing a good job putting together the new generation.While the Barcelona star cleared his head after the World Cup, the gaffer got some very good results in friendly matches over that period of time.The problem came right after Messi returned to the national team, they lost their match against Venezuela on his return.This poor result opened Lionel Scaloni’s eyes, it made him realize that perhaps adapting the young players to Messi will be more difficult than anybody expected.The truth is that very few managers can actually come up with a system that includes Messi and actually works.Lionel Scaloni already knows how much this player can give to the national team but he fears the other players won’t live to the expectations.The manager made a general plea to the press of not demanding so much from Messi and start demanding more from the rest of the players.Top 5 players who can actually replace Messi and Ronaldo Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 13, 2019 After Pep Guardiola’s latest defense of Messi and Ronaldo, we need to start talking about the Top 5 players who can replace them.Replacing Messi and…However, we believe it’s already too late to put together a proper squad with Messi that can bring Argentina to success before the player retires.Lionel Scaloni: “Esté o no Messi, lo que buscamos es un equipo, no un salvador” https://t.co/EPB0TXBipp pic.twitter.com/2lXagOnQC0— América Hoy (@AmerHoy) May 7, 2019There is no doubt that Argentina without Lionel Messi wouldn’t be able to compete in any tournament, but they have to start looking at their options without him.Saloni didn’t really receive a question about Messi during his interview with TNT Sports, they just requested him to give his assessment about the player on the role he has with the Argentina National Team.“Talking about Messi has become a bit relative because we constantly ask him for results,” said Scaloni during the interview.“I believe that out of over 100 matches he’s played with the national team, he very rarely didn’t deliver good results.”“I believe that we should demand more from the other players instead of him, ask the rest of the players to be as good as they are in their clubs.”“It seems easy but I think that his shadow inside the pitch can become a bit of a shock for many of these young players.”“We spoke to the players after the match against Venezuela and that’s probably what I liked the most out of that trip.”“We all agreed that each player should try to be the same players with their club and Argentina, Messi can come and add his contribution after that. It seems very simple but it’s actually very difficult to achieve.”#HalconesyPalomas | Lionel Scaloni, en #TNTSports: “Muy rara vez Messi no dio la talla en la Selección (…) Para alguno puede ser difícil jugar con él” pic.twitter.com/S9hBL0AMZv— TNT Sports LA (@TNTSportsLA) May 8, 2019Do you think Argentina will win a major trophy before Messi retires?

What do you know about Ronaldos business

first_imgThe football world is very competitive and every player has to show that they’re excellent one season after another.It’s not hard to imagine that this strikes even harder at people who are in the top tier. Such stars like Cristiano Ronaldo have to try even harder to prove that he’s the best. However, now Ronaldo will have a chance to prove that he’s best in something else, rather than football. Recently he acquired a new business and opened a hair transplantation clinic in Madrid, Spain.The company that was involved in the process has around 10 clinics in Portugal, however, to expand its business to Madrid, it was decided to involve Ronaldo. As Christiano says, this is something he thinks can help a lot of people in terms of their self-esteem. Indeed, who else to trust in regards to self-esteem but a man that is considered a sex-idol among lots of his fans.

(Photo by Emilio Andreoli/Getty Images)No one should be lonely. Such appearance flaws as the bald head may lead to complexes and, thus, to loneliness. So, the transplantation has got not only an aesthetic purpose. Besides, Ronaldo explained why he had decided to get involved in such a specific business as hair transplantation, especially if he has never experienced any problems like that himself.Cristiano Ronaldo, JuventusSerie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….In choosing a new project for investment, as in choosing a new club, he trusted the very same people: his family and loved ones. However, he also has a team that helps him in making such decisions as well as managing his business and career. Someone fans already blame him for putting wrong priorities and spending more time on the new business, not football. But Cristiano disagrees, he’s sure that he can solve business issues today, and the next day train in the gym and get ready for the match that’s about to come. He trusts his team that has been helping him manage his hotels and gyms, and he never worries about it while he’s on the field, because he’s sure everything is going to be sorted out by the people he trusts.Getting back to the reason why Ronaldo chose the hair transplantation clinic. It was chosen because hair loss is a real problem that makes people feel worse. Even though he has never experienced such problems himself, he still might have them one day, and he wants to make sure that they can make a breakthrough in this field, just as Cristiano himself did in football. He’s confident that it’s time to take a step forward in this matter and help people.Let us hope that his passion for his new business will be no less than the one he has for football. Even though some fans might disagree, this decision to help people speaks more of Ronaldo as a person than any of his recent goals.NANJING, CHINA – JULY 24: Cristiano Ronaldo of Juventus celebrates scoring his side’s first goal from a free kick during the International Champions Cup match between Juventus and FC Internazionale at the Nanjing Olympic Center Stadium on July 24, 2019 in Nanjing, China.

San Diego task force sent to Florida for Hurricane Dorian

first_img KUSI Newsroom San Diego task force sent to Florida for Hurricane Dorian SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – San Diego’s fire department is sending a five-member task force to Florida to help first responders there deal with Hurricane Dorian, officials said today.Urban Search & Rescue Task Force 8, which is coordinated through the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department, dispatched the team, and officials said they are prepared to send more resources if needed.The San Diego task force is specially trained to assist local agencies nationwide in mitigating large-scale urban disasters, both natural and man made. The team’s expertise is “confined space search and rescue” where structures have collapsed.San Diego team members were dispatched to the World Trade Center after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, to Los Angeles County after the Northridge earthquake in 1994, to the Midwest after the 1995 Oklahoma City Federal Building bombing, and to Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005.US&R was developed in 1990 by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in response to several disasters which occurred in the 1980s.
