Euro at two-month low over contagion fears

And then you have Spain.”Many traders think the European Financial Stability Facility, a joint EU-IMF fund created in May, may not have enough funds to support Spain if it needs help.The euro was down 0.56 per cent at $1.3172, having fallen to $1.3166, its lowest since Sept. 21. It fell through its 100-day moving average on Friday, a bearish signal, and the next target is its 200-day moving average currently at $1.3129.Euro/dollar implied volatilities extended a recent ascent, reflecting nervousness about the single currency. One-month vols rose to 14.55 per cent from 13.60 on Friday, while risk-reversals increasingly bid for the downside.The one-month 25-delta was trading around 2.0 for euro puts versus 1.85 on Friday.Ireland said the emergency loans would run for an average of 7.5 years, with an interest rate of around 6 per cent. Many analysts say markets are still likely to turn on Portugal and Spain, seen as the eurozone’s next weakest links.“It is going to be difficult to ringfence Ireland,” said Tom Levinson, FX strategist at ING. “The euro will continue to struggle in a week when we can expect some decent U.S. data.”Another source of uncertainty is a lack of details on a Franco-German proposal to make private bondholders share the burden of losses on sovereign debt restructuring.“The difficulty for the market is to allow itself the luxury of letting these developments get traction in a currency market where buying the euro is still akin to catching the falling knife,” Daragh Maher, deputy head of global foreign exchange research at CIB wrote.Analysts said the market would be on the lookout for whether ECB policymakers, meeting on Thursday, would go ahead and remove some of the emergency measures put in place earlier this year.While some analysts say the Irish package will reduce Irish banks’ need for ECB funding, RBS’s Dudani said euro zone banks were still grappling with funding problems and the emergency measures were needed.The euro’s losses helped the dollar index to its highest in two months. It rose to as high 80.653, up 0.3 per cent for the day.

This is a very unprofessional thing done by BAI,” Sawant wrote on her twitter handle.Seasoned doubles campaigner Aparna Balan on Tuesday had cried foul after being left out of India’s squad for the Asian Games, saying she and her women’s doubles partner Sruthi KP were “deliberately ignored” despite their consistent performances at the selection tournaments.Also Read: Asian Games Badminton Team Selection: Aparna Balan cries foulSawant also said that the young Indian pair of Rohan Kapoor and Kuhoo Garg, who were ranked 67th in the April 26 World Championship qualification ranking, were selected in their place despite being lower ranked than them in BWF chart at the cut-off date, reports PTI.“Our entry was confirmed by both sides from Malaysia as well as India but BAI withdrew my entry without my permission just to give an lndian pair a chance who is ranked 67 according to the qualification date of World Championships and we were ranked 51 according to World Championships 2018 qualification date.”However, the BAI defended its decision, saying that Sawant’s entry was withdrawn since her partner Yogendran is a Malaysian citizen.“Doubles partner of Prajakta is a Malaysian citizen. As such BAI is not empowered to send the name of a Malaysian citizen in the Indian team. That is why we have to withdraw the pair,” BAI president Himanta Biswa Sarma told PTI.Interestingly, Prajakta and Yogendran Krishnan had competed in the 2017 World Championship at Glasgow.

But as a responsible person I cannot recommend entry of a Malaysian citizen from BAI. BAI can face big problem if we do that without clearance of MEA and sports ministry, if at all we have to even consider such an eventuality.”According to the BWF’s regulation for eligibility & processing of entries for World Championships, “in the event that players from two different Member Associations compete together as a pair, each player will be counted as 1/2 an entry for the respective Member Association in that event”.Sawant also alleged that the young pair got selected as they are part of the Gopichand academy.“I know why this injustice has happened because the players who have qualified for World Championships are from Gopichand Academy and one of the daughters of executive committee member,” she wrote.“These things are happening for many years and now I cannot take this injustice. Despite not included in National Camp I have been performing professionally to get good World ranking but still association and the concerned coaches have done injustice with me.“This was a very, very unprofessional move by Badminton Association of India and it’s my right to fight for it.”Sawant and Yogendran have been playing together for the last year and a half. She has been struggling to get Indian partners in mixed doubles and is being sponsored by The New Vision Badminton Academy in Kuala Lumpur, which is being owned by Yogendran, since 2014.She has been locked in a legal battle with the BAI and chief coach P Gopichand since filing a case in November 2012 in the Bombay High Court, when she accused Gopichand of causing “mental harassment” after she was refused entry to the national coaching camp in Hyderabad.

5 stock market crash bargains I’d buy to get rich

first_img Following this year’s stock market crash, volatility has been the watchword for shares in 2020. Even after this week’s positive vaccine update, and the subsequent positive market response, many stocks continue to trade significantly below the levels at which they began the year. However, I think this could be a great opportunity. As such, I’ve been buying a basket of stock-market-crash bargains to get rich in the long run. Here are five of my favourites. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Stock market crash bargainsThe pandemic has gutted the hospitality sector. Despite government support, forced closures have plunged businesses into the red. As long as the virus continues to race around the world, hospitality will continue to suffer. But it won’t last forever. People will return to pubs and restaurants at some point. That’s why I’ve been looking at these stocks recently. Two of my favourites are J D Wetherspoon and Fuller Smith and Turner. Both of these businesses have seen sales fall as a result of the pandemic. The good news is, they both have a balance sheet strong enough to weather the storm.What’s more, both firms have a definite competitive advantage in the form of their brands. Wetherspoon is known for value while Fuller is known for quality. These advantages should help both groups recover on the other side of the pandemic. Another stock market crash bargain that’s struggled to recover is Jet2. Owner of the Jet2 holiday brand, the group has seen the value of its shares crumble this year. It is easy to see why. Overseas travel has effectively been banned in 2020.Unlike other holiday companies, Jet2 acted quickly to refund customers. I think this has really helped the firm’s reputation. It’s also the main reason why I’d buy this business as a recovery play. When consumers start spending again, I reckon Jet2’s reputation will prove to be a strong tailwind for the company. Bargain blue-chipsInvestors rushed to sell everything in this year’s stock market crash. They even dumped stocks that have managed to escape the worst of the slump. British American Tobacco and GlaxoSmithKline are my favourite examples of this. Both companies have informed investors that they expect profits to hold up in 2020.Nevertheless, negative investor sentiment has pushed down the value of the two businesses to low levels. Following these declines, I think both stocks appear deeply undervalued. That’s why I’d be happy to own them at current levels. I reckon all of the above companies have what it takes to stage a recovery in 2021 and beyond. In most cases, I think the shares can yield large returns from current levels, possibly even beating the broader market over the next few years. In my experience, once a recovery stock gets going, it can be tough to stop.

Photo: Catherine Renaud[Episcopal News Service] Advocates for victims of child sex trafficking warn that the problem spikes around big sporting events, like the Super Bowl, which is taking place this weekend in Atlanta. That warning sparked a call to action among Episcopalians in the Diocese of Atlanta, who have turned thousands of bars of soap into weapons in the fight against exploitation and abuse.The campaign, dubbed SOAP UP Atlanta, was organized by members of the diocese’s Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking Commission and builds on the work of a range of organizations in metro Atlanta with the shared goal of ending human trafficking.“It’s going to take people, parishes, churches, other organizations banding together to get this done, and if we do, massive amounts of people can stop it,” said Catherine Renaud, a commission member who helped organize the SOAP UP events. The bars of soap were wrapped with anti-trafficking hotline numbers and given to hotels around Atlanta, along with informational materials and posters with the pictures of missing children.Attention to this issue during the lead-up to the Super Bowl on Feb. 3 already appears to be producing results. At least four victims were rescued and 33 people arrested this week through a law enforcement crackdown, according to an Atlanta Journal-Constitution report.It wasn’t clear if any of those victims were saved because of SOAP UP, but Renaud said she later learned that, at some hotels, employees told campaign volunteers they recognized potential victims from the handout posters and reported that information to authorities.The diocese’s Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking Commission has been around for several years but has never attempted a campaign like this before, said Renaud, who has been on the commission for about two years.Renaud is 76 and semi-retired after running a computer software business. She is a member of St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church in Dunwoody, an Atlanta suburb, and got involved in the fight against child trafficking after learning about the problem years ago at a conference.“I heard the statistics. That’s all it took for me,” she said. Among the statistics cited by the diocese’s commission are that, in Georgia each month, an estimated 7,000 or more men who pay for sex end up exploiting an adolescent female.“I could not sit by and do nothing,” Renaud said. “And I think the more other people hear about it, they won’t be able to either. Once you hear it, you can’t forget it.”The Episcopal Church, too, has taken up the issue. A 2009 General Convention resolution “calls for the protection of all victims of human trafficking,” and Episcopalians have been involved in past campaigns to fight sex trafficking in Super Bowl cities.In July, General Convention passed a resolution emphasizing the role businesses can play in identifying and reporting exploitation by adhering to what is known as the Code of Conduct for the Protection of Children from Sexual Exploitation in Travel and Tourism.Bars of soap like these are labeled with trafficking hotlines and distributed to hotels where victims may see them and get help. Photo: S.O.A.P., via FacebookOutreach to businesses is a primary goal of the Ohio-based organization S.O.A.P. that was founded by trafficking survivor Theresa Flores. S.O.A.P. mobilizes volunteers to wrap bars of soap and containers of makeup wipes with labels advertising human trafficking hotlines and distributing them to hotels where victims might see them. Super Bowl cities have been a top target of Flores’ team since 2011 when it was held in Dallas.As the Diocese of Atlanta’s anti-trafficking commission began discussing its own plans for this Super Bowl, it reached out to Flores to partner with the local campaign. On Jan. 26, the diocese held a daylong workshop for a capacity crowd of 200 at All Saints’ Episcopal Church in Atlanta, where Flores shared her story and alarming statistics about the problem of child sex trafficking. Commission members also worked with Ahavath Achim Synagogue to host a second SOAP UP workshop there the following day.Each afternoon, workshop participants divided into teams of four and ventured out to hotels around the city, asking hotel managers to stock the bars of soap wrapped with hotline labels. The hotels were “unbelievably receptive,” Renaud said.The Rev. Monica Mainwaring, vicar of Church of the Common Ground in Atlanta, is a member of the diocesan commission who volunteered at the Jan. 26 event. SOAP UP was “in every way a success,” she said.“It’s not like you can battle trafficking in an instant,” Mainwaring said. She compared it to the problem of homelessness, which can’t be simply swept under the rug when the Super Bowl comes to town. Her worshipping community celebrates Eucharist every week at a city park, convenient for people experiencing homelessness.She sees the SOAP UP campaign as one part of a long-term community-wide effort to end human trafficking in the city. “I’m really proud of the city [organizations] working on that and very publicly saying we’re going to fight this.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

New delivery service comes to Apopka

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Please enter your name here You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Roadie is an app-based shipping community that launched in the Southeast United States in January 2015 and became available in all 50 states since, including recently in Orlando and the surrounding areas, including Apopka.Roadie was founded on the southern hospitality notion of neighbors helping neighbors. The idea struck founder Marc Gorlin one day when he needed a couple of boxes of custom tile from a warehouse a few hours away to finish a bathroom renovation, and had no economic or practical way of getting them the same day. He started to think; there’s always someone going somewhere, surely someone who was already headed in that direction would be willing to transport a couple of boxes of tile for him. A light bulb went off, and Roadie was born.By tapping into the more than one billion square feet of excess capacity in passenger vehicles already on the road, Roadie is bringing disruptive innovation to the $90 billion shipping industry. The service connects people with stuff to send with drivers heading in the right direction. Roadie’s model enables efficient, low-cost delivery for senders and rewards drivers for trips they were already taking. It’s quickly becoming the go-to delivery solution for large, awkward or delicate items. From patio furniture to pets, Roadie makes ‘out-of-the-box’ delivery as easy and convenient as ordering a pizza.Roadie delivers what people need right to their door, same-day, next day, and even on weekends. Both the sender and receiver can track deliveries in real-time via smartphone and goods are automatically protected up to $500 with the option to purchase additional coverage up to $10,000.Pricing is determined by distance and urgency, in addition to size. Most local Gigs will cost between $8 and $50, and long distance Gigs with oversized items can cost up to $650 and even more for delivery of Pets.The Roadie app is available for download in the iTunes Store and on Google Play.

Fidel sobre el bloqueo estadounidense a Cuba

first_img28 de noviembre de 2016El año pasado, a pesar de alguna mejoría en las relaciones bilaterales, el bloqueo de EUA – que aún existe – le costó a Cuba más de 4 mil millones de dólares, al mismo tiempo que obstaculizó todos los aspectos de la vida cubana. Estados Unidos sigue imponiendo multas a bancos y empresas. Organizaciones estadounidenses como la Fundación Interreligiosa para la Organización Comunitaria y personas como Albert Fox siguen siendo víctimas y son hostigadas por oponerse al bloqueo estadounidense.Los planes de EUA para bloquear la economía cubana comenzaron con un memorando interno del Departamento de Estado fechado el 6 de abril de 1960, titulado “El Declive y Caída de Castro”. Ahora público, el primer punto de la nota es que “la mayoría de los cubanos apoya a Castro”. La segunda es que “no hay una oposición política efectiva”. (Tinyurl.com/h6tm8e5)El memorándum reconoce que “el único medio previsible de alienar el apoyo interno es a través del desencanto y la desafección basada en la insatisfacción económica y en dificultades. … De ahí se deduce que todos los medios posibles deben ser emprendidos sin demora para debilitar la vida económica de Cuba … para disminuir los salarios reales y monetarios, para provocar hambre, desesperación y el derrocamiento del gobierno”.Once presidentes y 56 años más tarde, Washington, después de no haber “derribado” al gobierno cubano, todavía emplea el viejo libro de guerra económica de EUA. El bloqueo está eclipsado porque ahora hay vuelos directos desde EUA a Cuba, embajadas correspondientes y conversaciones bilaterales mutuamente respetuosas con acuerdos. Y el presidente Barack Obama visitó Cuba en marzo.Sin embargo, a diferencia de la mayoría de los socios comerciales de EUA, Cuba todavía está impedida de usar dólares, todavía debe pagar en efectivo por adelantado para comprar de EUA y no puede exportar a EUA. Washington todavía intenta subvertir Cuba con programas de desestabilización, emisiones de televisión e incentivos financieros especiales para impulsar la inmigración irregular. Agentes estadounidenses incluso tratan de atraer a médicos cubanos que ayudan a los países pobres y proporcionan socorro en casos de desastre.Fidel sobre las fortalezas de CubaEl 1 de mayo de 2003, Fidel Castro, entonces presidente de Cuba, habló en el Monumento a Martí en la Plaza de la Revolución en La Habana luego de una década de haber sufrido – pero luego vencido – el choque de perder a sus principales socios comerciales:“Cuando la URSS y el campo socialista desaparecieron, nadie apostaba un solo centavo por la supervivencia de la Revolución Cubana. Estados Unidos arreció el bloqueo. Surgieron las leyes Torricelli y Helms-Burton, ambas de carácter extraterritorial. Nuestros mercados y fuentes de suministros fundamentales desaparecieron abruptamente. El consumo de calorías y proteínas se redujo casi a la mitad. El país resistió y avanzó considerablemente en el campo social. Hoy ha recuperado gran parte de sus requerimientos nutritivos y avanza aceleradamente en otros campos. Aun en esas condiciones, la obra realizada y la conciencia creada durante años obraron el milagro. ¿Por qué resistimos? Porque la Revolución contó siempre, cuenta y contará cada vez más con el apoyo del pueblo (Aplausos),un pueblo inteligente, cada vez más unido, más culto y más combativo”. (tinyurl.com/jdwd8b7)En 2016, por 25º año consecutivo, la Asamblea General de la ONU instó a EUA a poner fin al bloqueo económico, comercial y financiero de Cuba. Cuando esta convocatoria fue presentada por primera vez en 1992, 59 países apoyaron a Cuba, 71 se abstuvieron y 3 votaron en contra de Cuba – Estados Unidos, Israel y Rumania. Este año, de 193 países, 191 votaron por Cuba, y ninguno votó en contra. Sólo dos – EUA e Israel – se abstuvieron.En 1960, Washington comenzó un ataque contra un gobierno popular y continúa este ataque en 2016. El gobierno cubano todavía tiene el apoyo de su pueblo. Es hora de que el bloqueo termine.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
