Myanmar’s inhumane treatment on Rohingya people forced them to enter Bangladesh fleeing their homes in Rakhine state,” he said.The BGB chief was presenting a keynote on “National, Regional and International Cooperation and its Effectiveness to Enhance Border Security and Safety-Past, Present and Future” on the fourth day on Wednesday at a five-day international symposium in Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, said a press release on Thursday.Abul Hossain said Bangladesh gave shelter to the persecuted Rohingyas in the humanitarian ground.“Giving shelter to the Rohingya, our prime minister Sheikh Hasina has set a unique example of generosity and humanity. That is why, different international media called her as mother of humanity” he said.He said, “Prime minister Sheikh Hasina firmly said Myanmar must bring back their nationals.”Saudi Border Guards organised the “1st International Symposium on Land and Maritime Border Security and Safety: Challenges and Solutions” between 15 and 19 October.Some 45 experts on land and maritime border security from 17 countries joined the five-day symposium.last_img read more

first_imgAs students stage a national walkout Wednesday morning over gun violence, senior federal officials will be sitting down for an expected grilling from Congress over law enforcement’s failure to act on tips about the gunman behind last month’s school shooting in Parkland, Fla.The massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School touched off yet another round of soul-searching and national debate over guns in the U.S. that has drawn in activists, lawmakers and the White House. One major change this time, however, is that Florida teenagers who survived the violence are spearheading the conversation.The Senate Judiciary Committee officially joins the discussion Wednesday with a three-panel hearing that will likely focus, at least in part, on missteps by both local and federal law enforcement ahead of the shooting. In addition to federal officials, Florida Sens. Republican Marco Rubio and Democrat Bill Nelson will take questions. Ryan Petty, whose daughter Alaina died in the shooting, and a teacher at the high school, Katherine Posada, will also participate.“The great tragedy of the Parkland shooting is that it was preventable,” Chairman Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, said. “The FBI and local law enforcement failed to act on credible tips that should have neutralized the killer and gotten him help.”The FBI has acknowledged that it received a tip in January at its West Virginia Call Center about the alleged Parkland shooter, Nikolas Cruz. The bureau said the caller provided information about Cruz’s “gun ownership, desire to kill people, erratic behavior, and disturbing social media posts, as well as the potential of him conducting a school shooting.”Questions over the bureau’s actions will fall to acting FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich, who will be testifying alongside the acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Thomas Brandon, and the head of the National Threat Assessment Center, Lina Alathari.In February, Bowdich told reporters that protocols were not followed in the Cruz case. The tip was not forwarded to the Miami Field Office for follow-up as it should have been.“Let me be clear: There was a mistake made,” Bowdich said. “We know that. But it is our job to make sure that we do everything in our power to ensure that does not happen again.”Bowdich said the FBI is conducting a full-scale review of the tip-line, which he said received some 765,000 calls last year. He estimated that 1 in 10 of those calls turns into a lead.Local law enforcement also reportedly missed red flags. The Broward Sheriff’s Office also received a tip about Cruz potentially being a “school shooter in the making,” according to the Miami Herald. The newspaper says deputies didn’t report the warning.

first_imgThese boys were selected as the 2014 Legislative Floor Leaders for 2014 Maryland Boys State.Each June, a free, week-long residential camp run by the American Legion gathers young men from around the state of Maryland for an exercise in civics in which they simulate the processes of democratic governance. While the program, known as Boys State, has some famous alumni, a lack of greater awareness about the program has limited its ability to attract potential participants from inner city areas like Baltimore.Boys State, held this year on the campus of McDaniel College, takes in young men from around the state who have completed their junior year of high school and divides them into groups, referred to as cities. For the first 24 hours, the counselors, all of whom are members of the American Legion and most of whom are themselves military veterans, give all the commands and make all the rules.Boys State, however, is not your standard drill camp for boys considering a career in the military. Discipline is not the principal aim of these first 24 hours; rather, the participants are subjected to a set of rules in which they had no say as a simulation of the transition from more autocratic forms of government to democratic ones.Over the course of the second day, participants meet with their fellow citizens and draw up charters for their city government, elect officials, and make their own rules and laws. After forming their own city governments, the boys also elect representatives to a state legislature, which will vote on laws based on the recommendations of committees who have already debated the relevant bills and in which all the boys participate.Two of the participants in the camp will be elected senators and sent to another week-long program that generally runs towards the end of July and takes place in Washington D.C. The only cost to the young men is transportation to the camp. However, according to Russell Myers, department adjutant for Maryland Boys State and the chief administrator of this year’s camp, “If they can’t afford to get here, the Legion post arranges for them to get a ride here.”The only other cost associated with the camp is the requirement that participants bring a roll of quarters. The purpose of the quarters is to fill the city coffers once a tax is levied in order for each city to provide important services to its citizenry, in this case laundry. “It’s a way to show that the essential services in a city don’t just show up, there’s a way that they happen,” said Myers who took the AFRO on a tour of the camp.While there are certainly echoes of the counselors’ military backgrounds – for example, there are color guards and the accommodations in which the boys stay are referred to as barracks – the emphasis is not on military service but on the inner workings of democratic governance. “We’re trying to make citizens and to continue on with our form of government,” said Ronald Holcombe, a camp counselor, and member of the Federal Post No. 19 of the American Legion in Baltimore City.Holcombe has worked to increase participation by boys from the Baltimore City area but has found recruitment difficult. As part of his efforts, he visits high schools, speaks with guidance counselors about the program so that they can inform students they think might be interested, as well as sends mailers. The response, Holcombe told the AFRO has been little to none. This year, only one person from Baltimore City participated, while another was accepted but never showed. “It’s a hard task trying to get students from the high schools from the inner city.”Myers admits that, while some very famous persons have come through the Boys State program, including former President Bill Clinton, and NBA stars Michael Jordan and Thurl Bailey, the American Legion could do a better job of advertising programs such as Boys State.For Ayobami Afolabi, one of the nine boys elected a legislative floor leader at this year’s camp and whose family hails from Nigeria, Boys State has served to help him see his own potential as he heads into his final year of high school and the decisions about one’s future that inevitably coincide with it. “As soon as the first day went by, I felt like everyone here was like a family. They helped me to know who I was and what I was capable of. I helped them out, we all helped each other and it’s just been a really great experience,” said Afolabi.last_img read more

first_imgOver the past month, gold has seen a considerable decrease in price, dropping almost 15% since the beginning of May. If this trend continues, gold will have its first losing year since 2000. This has led many investors, from the housewives of China to the bankers on Wall Street, looking for a bargain in gold prices. However, what they don’t realize is that there is already a bargain available – in uranium. Despite being the source of 20% of electricity in the United States and 35% in the EU, its price remains at multiyear lows. Yes, gold has dropped a lot in the past month, but an ounce of gold can still buy almost 35 pounds of uranium at today’s prices – that’s much more than the historical average of 22 pounds. In fact, back in 2007, an ounce of gold would only net you about five pounds of uranium. What does this mean? If you consider paper fiat money to be worthless and gold as real money, then the fact that you can buy more of uranium with gold means that uranium is cheap. Right now, we are clearly in the territory of “uranium is cheap relative to gold.” Since these types of ratios have a way of going back to their historical averages, this means that in a gold bull environment, uranium is set to increase even more. Still not convinced about uranium? Watch our free online video event, The Myth of American Energy Independence, to learn more about the future of nuclear power, energy security in the US, and the uranium sector as a whole. Some of the most knowledgeable experts in the field, including former US Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham and emeritus chair of the UK Atomic Energy Authority Barbara Thomas Judge, will provide their insights and forecasts for the future of uranium. Watch it today so that you can be optimally prepared to profit from the uranium bull market that’s ahead.last_img read more

first_imgIn This Issue. *  Another flower counted on the wall. *  Moves in currencies & Metals are small. *  RBA minutes solidify no rate move in 2014. *  SNB to keep cap on franc for 2 more years? And Now. Today’s A Pfennig For Your Thoughts. U.K. Inflation drops, Along With Sterling!. Good Day! .  And a Tom Terrific Tuesday to you! A nice 10th inning win for my beloved Cardinals, even if they blew the lead in the 9th inning.. UGH!  Of course, I was not up at that hour to see it, but the replay will be on while I eat my lunch today, so I’ll see it then, and know not to start throwing things around the room when the lead gets blown in the 9th!  Well, the Mo. Gov. called in the National Guard in an effort to protect the businesses and citizens of Ferguson, Mo, only to be met with more violence last night. So. How was your day yesterday? Mine was good, that is after I slept through almost half of it! The currencies and metals remained stuck in the mud, as they slept through the entire day! This morning, it appears that we have more of the same-o, same-o, with a mixed bag-o-results, but none of the moves are large. Yesterday, I referred to watching the currencies as being like counting flowers on the wall, that don’t bother me at all, playing solitaire till dawn with a deck of 51. I don’t think I can come up with anything else that reminds me of this trading pattern, day, after day here in the middle of August, the Dog Days of Summer. Yesterday, I kidded about how the markets must be getting all gussied up for today’s July print of CPI (consumer inflation).  You know I’m being facetious here, because what in the world would anyone find in the CPI print? Nothing, absolutely nothing!  The experts are thinking that CPI in July rose .1%… But, I’m going to go out a big fat limb here and say it will be .2% HAHAHAHAHA! Now, that’s really being bold, Chuck! The BLS is not going to show “real inflation” folks. just get used to it. Instead, go to www.shadowstats.com to see what the “real inflation” rate is.  And while you’re there, I’m sure John Williams wouldn’t mind if you subscribed to his information, that is critical if you really want to know the “truth”. And like my old fave TV show, The X-Files, used to say. The Truth Is Out There. The problem with most of us in the U.S. is that we don’t care! We don’t care if the BLS makes up the CPI number to keep rates down, so housing can continue to be affordable. We don’t care if the U.S. National Debt is now $17, 657,260,800,000 (it changes by the minute, so by the time I finish this letter we will be 10 Billion or more higher) We don’t care that the Unfunded liabilities, according to Professor Lawrence Kotlikoff are now greater than $200, 000,000,000,000 (for those of you not wanting to count the zeroes, that’s $200 Trillion, with a Capital “T”!)  It just doesn’t register with most Americans, so therefore they don’t care. But when they go to the store and see that their dollars don’t buy as much as they used to, they think, “It’s those darn greedy Corporations gouging us” But the truth is that it’s their Gov’t that has caused a weak dollar, which causes a loss of purchasing power with their deficit spending. I have no idea I was going there today, but there you have it. The story of the dollar in one lesson by Chuck Butler. Oh, there are other chapters to this book, but in the end it all comes down to debt.  I was re-reading, (probably for the 3rd or 4th time now) Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlitt this past weekend and yesterday, and Henry highlights something that I’ve highlighted before and that is, that it has become trendy to call debt, “credit”. Like when they talk about Consumer Credit rising,  it’s really debt rising. But it sure sounds better to say “credit” than “debt”. Easy on the ears, right?  For those of you who promise to put away the sharp objects first, and want to see more “real numbers”, you can visit the U.S. Debt Clock here: http://www.usdebtclock.org/index.html The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) printed their meeting minutes last night, and there was nothing new for the markets to see and if anything solidified the markets’ thought that the RBA is on hold with interest rates the rest of this year. And one would think that hearing that, the Aussie dollar (A$) would sink. But, as I’ve explained for many years now, with currencies, the “unknown” is more risky to currencies than knowing what to expect. And so the A$ has pushed higher overnight, although, like I said at above, the move is small. This morning, we saw the U.K. July CPI, printed considerably lower than expected at 1.6% VS 1.8% expected. This drop in consumer inflation flashed “no rate hike” in bright lights to the markets (sometimes they need bright lights to catch their attention!) and the pound sterling got sold. The downward move in pound sterling is probably the largest move in the currencies this morning with pound sterling down 3/4’s of a cent.  I don’t like being right about things like the pound sterling, as it rose earlier this year, and everyone thought it would just keep going. But I kept telling you that I couldn’t get my arms around the pound’s rise, mainly because of what I knew what Bank of England Gov. Carney was doing, and two.. The U.K. still had a mountain of debt to deal with. The Charts people say that pound sterling is oversold, and it will bounce back. You know, the routine. The pound loses 1% this month, and 3.2% since 7/15,  bringing it below its 200-day moving avg. (DMA) and therefore it is set to rise.  But if the pound does bounce back, ever so briefly, it will more of a direct result of the markets getting snookered again.  You see,  the Sunday Times had an article where Carney mentioned that interest could be lifted before Officials see a recovery in wages..  Memo to markets, don’t take that bait, it stinks! In New Zealand overnight, a drop in dairy prices pushed the N.Z. dollar / kiwi down overnight. Remember what I always tell you about New Zealand’s commodities: Dairy, Wool, and Lumber, so when of the triumvirate has some problems, kiwi gets sent to the woodshed. Given the markets’ reaction to the drop in dairy prices, one would think that today’s Global Dairy Trade Price Index would be a key report to watch. There was also some political furniture rearranging going on in N.Z. overnight. An official report downgraded GDP, and growth forecasts. But this is not the end all here, and probably had more to do with the fact that the N.Z. elections are only a month away.  The N.Z. Treasury saw fit to counter this report and say that, “the outlook for the N.Z. economy has not changed significantly in the relatively short time since the Budget Update.” Recall the Budget Update was in June, and looked favorably toward growth. So, some “point-counter point” discussions going on in N.Z.  The markets aren’t sure who to believe, and this puts the whole discussion in the “unknown” territory, which as I just explained is not good for the currency. It appears to me that this is an opportunity to buy at cheaper levels here, and pick up an interest rate differential. I’m just saying. There was news from Russian overnight that didn’t concern Ukraine! The Russian Central Bank (RCB) widened the trading band that the ruble trades in, that has existed for the last 15 years!  The naysayers to the ruble will point to this and say, “What the heck is she thinking here? The ruble is the 2nd worst performing currency this year, and now she’s (RCB Gov. Elvira Nabiullina)  going to take away the Governor? Yes, she is. But I like this! Let the currency be valued by the markets, not a Central Bank! The Swiss franc is weaker today. I did cause a couple of heart attacks yesterday with my reporting of the franc’s price in the currency roundup. Sorry about that! My fat fingers typed the franc price as $1.0160. When it should have been $1.1060!  Nothing like a 10% drop to start your day, eh? The franc’s weakness today is coming from a weaker euro, but also from a recent Bloomberg survey that showed three quarters of the 23 economists surveyed saying that the Swiss National Bank (SNB) will keep the floor VS the euro in place for another two years. The floor, basically puts a cap on how strong the franc can get VS the euro. 1.20 was the level the SNB placed on the franc a couple of years ago now, and at that time there was talk that the SNB wanted to move the level to 1.35, thus causing a depreciation in the franc, like they did when they placed the 1.20 level. At least that “talk” has diminished for now. The Japanese yen continues to trade around 102.50.. On any given day it might be a bit stronger, or a bit weaker, but nothing to speak of in the way of movement. Even when the “safe havens” get bought, yen rises, but not like it used to. My friend, and writer / publisher extraordinaire, Bill Bonner said a couple of things about Japan yesterday that I thought you should hear, but should you want to read Bill every day, go to: http://bonnerandpartners.com/category/parent/dre/ and you can subscribe! “We are amazed because we have seen the international test results. On IQ tests, the Japanese score 10 points higher than the world average. And yet there they are… doing the stupidest things we can imagine. We are grateful, because Japan has been leading the world in economic absurdity – bubbles in stocks and real estate… bailouts… ZIRP… and QE. And there is no economic policy so ridiculous that US policymakers won’t give it a whirl. Whither thou goest, O, Nippon, we’re right behind you.” Chuck again. Yes, like I’ve said for more than 10 years now. I think I’m turning Japanese, yes, I really think so! So, the U.S. Data Cupboard has the stupid CPI for July print today.. But more importantly will be the Housing Starts and Building Permits for July.. No bad weather, so these two should be show that they were better than in June. And Gold is up a couple of bucks this morning, again, no movement worth talking about. So I won’t spend a whole lot of time here, besides, I’ve got a real treat for you in the FWIW section today, that’s on Gold..  Palladium got to a multi-year high yesterday, and could almost reach out and touch $900 before it fell back on the day. Today, it’s up $3, and still within spittin’ distance of $900 at $896.. For What It’s Worth. Every two weeks I tell you how my latest “Things that make you go Hmmmm” is in my email box, and that I’m excited to get to read it, for the writer, Grant Williams is one of the best writers and minds in the markets today. Well, I found an interview with Grant Williams on kingworld.com so, I thought I would let you see what I’m talking about! Here are some snippets of the interview. Hope you like it! “The German gold repatriation situation has been fascinating from Day 1 and continues to be.  I think the motives behind making that announcement have probably been overtaken by events.  From the moment Hugo Chavez repatriated the Venezuelan gold, I said this is the start of a game of musical chairs that is going to end very, very badly…. I think the Germans felt as though they had to say something about repatriating their gold, and we’ve seen a bunch of other countries in much smaller amounts do this as well.  I think the Bundesbank felt that with the focus the Germans have on monetary prudence, they felt they had to say something. So they made the statement that they were going to get a portion of their gold back from the United States.  But since that time their repatriation has been overrun by a series of events, especially the fact that the gold that is supposed to be on deposit in the United States just isn’t there.  It’s not in the U.S. vaults because it’s gone. So now there is this attempt to put the genie back in the bottle.  Well, it’s one thing to attempt to put the genie back in the bottle, but it’s another thing to do that.  So they have resorted to Play No. 1 of central banks, which is just to be quiet about the situation.  But there are now too many guys looking at this German situation and the announcement that they have gotten back only 5 tons of gold has left them with egg all over their faces. But the problem the United States has is that with the gold the central banks and the agent bullion banks who have leased out that gold over the years, they all have a vested interest in not scaring foreign holders of gold that is supposed to be safely stored in the United States.  So if we do get to the point where gold can’t be delivered, as long as everybody keeps quiet about it, maybe nobody will panic. But ultimately entities who are not in the ‘club’ will want their gold back and they are going to start making some noise about it.  At that point they will have to find the gold somewhere.  And if all that gold is in places where it’s tightly held, it will be an interesting situation to play out.” – Grant Williams Chuck again. I think it would behoove everyone to hear out  a guy like Grant Williams, and although he doesn’t say it here, he obviously believes that buying physical Gold is the thing to do. not paper Gold. physical Gold. Again, that’s his opinion, and mine and we both could be wrong! To recap. Another day, another flower counted on the wall, as the currencies are once again stuck in the mud trading mixed and in small moves. RBA meeting minutes solidified the thought that rates are not moving anywhere this year. N.Z. dairy prices moved downward, and other things led to kiwi dropping on the night. The SNB will keep the floor to the euro in place for another two years according to a Bloomberg survey, and Palladium remains within spittin’ distance of $900. Currencies today 8/19/14.

first_imgEurope’s banking system is collapsing. Over the past year, shares of Deutsche Bank (DB), Germany’s biggest bank, have plunged 56%. Swiss banking giant Credit Suisse (CS) is down 62% over the same period. Yesterday, both stocks hit record lows. Dozens of other European bank stocks have also crashed. The Euro STOXX Banks, which tracks 48 of Europe’s largest banks, is down 48% over the past year. This is a major issue… That’s because banks are the cornerstone of the financial system. They keep money flowing through the economy. If they’re struggling, it often means the economy is having major problems. Right now, European banks are flashing bright warning signs. That’s not just bad news for Europe—it’s also a serious threat to the rest of the world. In today’s Dispatch, we’ll show you why Europe’s banking crisis could turn into a global banking crisis. You’ll also learn how to transform this threat into a chance to make big gains. • European banks are struggling to make money… Spanish banking giant BBVA’s (BBVA) profits fell 54% last quarter. First-quarter profits at Deutsche Bank were down 58%. Swiss bank UBS’s (UBS) profits plunged 64%. European banks are hurting for a couple reasons. One, Europe is growing at the slowest pace in decades. Banks are making fewer loans as a result. Two, negative interest rates are eating European banks alive. If you’ve been reading the Dispatch, you know negative rates are the latest radical government policy. They basically flip your bank account upside down. Instead of earning interest for keeping money in the bank, you pay the bank to hold your money. Negative rates are clearly bad for savers. They’re also hurting Europe’s biggest banks. That’s because these huge institutions have to pay their “bank,” the European Central Bank (ECB). Today, European banks pay £4 for every £1,000 they store at the ECB for a year. That might not sound like a lot. But it adds up quick when you manage trillions of euros like these banks do. • Last week, investors got another reason to avoid European banks… On Thursday, Great Britain voted to leave the European Union (EU), which it’s been in since 1973. The “Brexit,” as the media is calling it, blindsided investors. As we explained yesterday, the market was expecting Great Britain to stay in EU. The unexpected outcome triggered a global stock market crash. U.S. stocks had their worst day since August. Japanese stocks had their worst day in five years. European stocks had their biggest decline since the 2008 financial crisis. Friday’s global selloff erased $2.1 trillion in value from global stocks. It was the global stock market’s worst day in history. The panic didn’t die down much over the weekend. By the end of Monday, another $930 billion had disappeared from the global stock market. • European bank stocks were hit the hardest… Deutsche Bank plunged 22% between Friday and Monday. Credit Suisse fell 23%. UBS fell 20%. Barclays (BCS) and Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) each plunged 37%. Both stocks are down more than 57% over the past year. These are gigantic moves in a matter of days. Remember, we’re not talking about small biotech stocks. These are some of the most important financial institutions on the planet. • Government officials are scrambling to contain the crisis… Today, the Bank of England (BoE) injected £3.1 billion into Britain’s banking system. It’s pledged to inject as much as £250 billion to stabilize its financial system. The BoE made its cash injection hours after the Bank of Japan (BOJ) pumped $1.5 billion into its banking system. As we’ll show you in a second, we don’t believe this will end well. That’s because this excessive money printing (sometimes called “quantitative easing”) doesn’t stimulate the economy like governments intend it to. Credit Suisse says other central banks could soon print more money too. Bloomberg Business reported on Friday: “Market liquidity and overall liquidity in the U.K. is drying up as we speak in a very rapid way,” said John Woods, chief investment officer for Asia-Pacific at Credit Suisse Private Banking, told Bloomberg TV in Hong Kong. “It’s highly likely that we see monetary easing in a coordinated response” from central banks across the world, he said. • Great Britain is headed for a recession… A recession is when an economy shrinks two quarters in a row. Goldman Sachs (GS) says Britain could be in a recession by early 2017. But here’s the thing. We don’t think the BoE will let this happen. That’s because central bankers will do anything—including using reckless, unproven monetary policies—to avoid a recession these days. Credit rating agency Standard & Poor’s agrees with us. Reuters reported today: “Brexit is likely to represent a drag of about 1.2 percent of GDP for the UK in 2017,” Jean-Michel Six, S&P’s chief economist for Europe, the Middle East and Africa told a conference call for investors on Tuesday. “We have a significant slowdown but growth remains positive although obviously in a much more disappointing way. That is because we anticipate a very strong monetary response on the part of the Bank of England, in the form of additional quantitative easing, in the form of a further cut in interest rates,” he added. Bank of America (BAC) and Deutsche Bank also expect the BoE to fire up the printing press again. Bank of America says it could happen as soon as August. • QE won’t help Great Britain’s economy… As we told you above, QE doesn’t work. As regular readers know, the Federal Reserve pumped $3.5 trillion into the U.S financial system after the 2008 financial crisis. This massive money printing effort was supposed to juice the economy. But the U.S. is growing at its slowest pace since World War II. QE also failed to jumpstart Japan’s economy, which hasn’t grown in two decades. There’s no reason to think it will work this time.

We read every email that comes in, and we’ll publish comments, questions, and answers that we think other readers will find useful. • If you’re nervous about the global financial system, we encourage you to take action today… The first thing you should do is own physical gold. Gold is real money. It’s held its value for thousands of years because it has a unique set of attributes: It’s easy to transport, easily divisible, and durable. You can take a gold coin anywhere in the world and folks will immediately recognize its value. Unlike paper money, central bankers cannot create gold from nothing. It’s the ultimate antidote to crumbling paper currencies. That’s why the price of gold often soars when governments print money. This year, gold is up 24%. It’s trading at the highest price in two years. But it could go much higher as governments continue to run reckless monetary experiments. • If you want big profits from rising gold prices, own gold stocks… Dispatch readers know gold miners are leveraged to the price of gold. A small jump in the price of gold can cause gold stocks to surge. Gold’s 24% jump this year has caused GDX, a fund that tracks large gold stocks, to soar 96%. We believe this gold stock rally is just getting started… During the 2000 and 2003 gold bull market, the average gold stock gained 602%. The best ones soared 1,000% or more. • Nick Giambruno, editor of Crisis Investing, has recommended two gold stocks since the start of 2015… He already closed out one of them for a quick double. It surged 103% in 14 months. Nick’s other gold stock is up 30% since March and is still dirt-cheap at today’s levels. Nick currently rates this stock a “Buy”…and says it could soon start paying a double-digit dividend yield if gold keeps rising. You can learn more about Nick’s gold stock by taking advantage of our special 60%-off sale for Crisis Investing. If you sign up today, you’ll be enrolled in a trial membership, which gives you 90 days risk-free to decide if the service is for you. But we encourage you to act soon.

You’ll also learn about an even bigger threat to your wealth than Europe’s banking crisis. As you’ll see, almost no one is talking about this coming crisis. Yet, it could cause millions of Americans to lose their entire life savings. By the end of this video, you’ll know how to protect yourself. And just as importantly, you’ll know how to profit from this coming crisis. Click here to watch this free video. Chart of the Day U.S. bank stocks are also headed lower. Today’s chart shows the performance of the Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) over the past year. XLF holds 94 major U.S. financial companies including behemoths JPMorgan Chase (JPM), Wells Fargo (WFC), and Bank of America (BAC). You can see XLF is down 11% since last June. While that’s not as severe as the near-50% drop in European banks over the same period, it’s still a clear sign to stay away. U.S. banks have many of the same problems as European banks. Like Europe, the U.S. economy is growing at the slowest pace in decades. And while the U.S. economy doesn’t have negative rates yet, Fed Chair Janet Yellen has said they aren’t “off the table” if the U.S. economy runs into trouble. The arrival of negative rates to the U.S. could tip bank stocks into a crisis, just like they have in Europe.

(Editor)Feb 26 2019The higher the cotinine levels were in the mother’s blood during pregnancy, the greater was the child’s risk of developing attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) later in life, showed an epidemiological study conducted by the Research Centre for Child Psychiatry at the University of Turku in Finland. Globally, it is the first study in which the connection between fetal nicotine exposure and diagnosis of ADHD was shown by measuring cotinine levels from pregnant maternal serum specimens.Despite its proven negative effects on fetal development, smoking during pregnancy remains a significant public health issue. During 2017, approximately 12.5% of all pregnant women in Finland smoked during pregnancy and 7% continued to smoke throughout their pregnancy.Related StoriesCannabis use during pregnancy may cause premature birthEffective stop smoking treatments less likely to be prescribed to people with mental health conditionsExercise during pregnancy can promote bone health of both mother and child- Exposure to maternal smoking is associated with various adverse perinatal outcomes. An association between maternal smoking and offspring ADHD has been shown in several studies. However, the causality of the association has been questioned to be mostly due to familial confounding, says Adjunct Professor Roshan Chudal from the Research Centre for Child Psychiatry at the University of Turku.- All previous studies on the topic were based on maternal self-report of smoking that has been shown to underestimate the true rates of smoking. The disclosure of smoking is even lower among pregnant smokers, continues Dr Chudal.Cotinine Reveals Connection between Smoking and Offspring ADHDCotinine is the biomarker indicating nicotine exposure. This includes active smoking as well as nicotine exposure from other sources such as nicotine replacement therapy or passive smoking. Measuring cotinine levels from maternal serum specimens collected during pregnancy, this study investigated the association between nicotine exposure during pregnancy and offspring ADHD.This study included 1,079 ADHD cases and an equal number of matched controls born between 1998 and 1999. Maternal cotinine levels were measured from maternal serum specimens collected during the first and second trimesters of pregnancy and archived in the national biobank. The strength of the research is the availability of valuable information from the Finnish Maternity Cohort biobank (FMC).- In this first nationwide study using maternal cotinine levels, we report a strong association between prenatal nicotine exposure and offspring ADHD says Professor Andre Sourander, the leader of the research group from the Research Centre for Child Psychiatry.The World Health Organization (WHO) considers smoking one of the main public health concerns worldwide.- Given the high prevalence of both smoking during pregnancy and ADHD among children, these findings warrant future studies on the interplay between maternal smoking and environmental, genetic, and epigenetic factors, observes Professor Sourander.last_img read more

(Joe Lederer/Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp. via AP) Explore further Disney has closed its $71 billion acquisition of Fox’s entertainment business, putting “Cinderella,” ”The Simpsons,” ”Star Wars” and “Dr. Strange” under one corporate roof. Cars enter and leave Fox Studios, Tuesday, March 19, 2019, in Los Angeles. Disney has closed its $71 acquisition of Fox’s entertainment business on Wednesday, March 20, in a move set to shake up the media landscape. The closure paves the way for Disney to launch its streaming service, Disney Plus, due out later this year. (AP Photo/Chris Pizzello) Cable and telecom companies have been buying the companies that make TV shows and movies to compete in a changing media landscape. Although internet providers like AT&T and Comcast directly control their customers’ access to the internet in a way that Amazon, YouTube and Netflix do not, they still face threats as those streaming services gain in popularity.AT&T bought Time Warner last year for $81 billion and has already launched its own streaming service, Watch TV, with Time Warner channels such as TBS and TNT, among other networks, for $15 a month.In addition to boosting the Disney streaming service, expected to debut next year, the deal paves the way for Marvel’s X-Men and the Avengers to reunite in future movies. Though Disney owns Marvel Studios, some characters including the X-Men had already been licensed to Fox.Disney also gets a controlling stake in the existing streaming service Hulu, which it plans to keep operating as a home for more general programming. Family-friendly shows and movies will head to Disney Plus.No pricing has been disclosed for Disney Plus. The streaming service will feature five categories of material: Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic. Disney charges $5 a month for ESPN Plus, a service that offers programming distinct from the ESPN cable channel.Meanwhile, Fox Corp.—the parts of 21st Century Fox that are not part of the deal, including Fox News, Fox Sports and Fox Broadcasting—started trading on the Nasdaq under the “FOX” and “FOXA” tickers on Tuesday. Disney streaming service just got a lot biggercenter_img The deal is likely to shake up the media landscape. Among other things, it paves the way for Disney to launch its streaming service, Disney Plus, due out later this year. It will also likely lead to layoffs in the thousands, thanks to duplication in Fox and Disney film-production staff.By buying the studios behind “The Simpsons” and X-Men, Disney aims to better compete with technology companies such as Amazon and Netflix for viewers’ attention – and dollars.Disney needs compelling TV shows and movies to persuade viewers to sign up and pay for yet another streaming service. It already has classic Disney cartoons, “Star Wars,” Pixar, the Muppets and some of the Marvel characters. With Fox, Disney could add Marvel’s X-Men and Deadpool, along with programs shown on such Fox channels as FX Networks and National Geographic. Fox’s productions also include “The Americans,” ”This Is Us” and “Modern Family.”The deal helps Disney further control TV shows and movies from start to finish – from creating the programs to distributing them though television channels, movie theaters, streaming services and other ways people watch entertainment. Disney would get valuable data on customers and their entertainment-viewing habits, which it can then use to sell advertising.Disney CEO Bob Iger said in an earnings call in February that Disney Plus and other direct-to-consumer businesses are Disney’s “No. 1 priority.” Citation: Disney closes $71B deal for Fox entertainment assets (2019, March 20) retrieved 17 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2019-03-disney-71b-fox-assets.html © 2019 The Associated Press.

first_img COMMENT Published on SHARE SHARE EMAIL The Supreme Court on Tuesday agreed to hear on June 19, a plea of Gujarat Congress challenging the decision of the Election Commission to hold separate bypolls to two Rajya Sabha seats in the state. The Rajya Sabha seats fell vacant following the election of BJP chief Amit Shah and party leader Smriti Irani to Lok Sabha from Gandhinagar and Amethi, respectively. A vacation bench of Justices Deepak Gupta and Surya Kant agreed to list the matter on Wednesday after senior advocate Vivek Tankha mentioned it for urgent hearing. The petition filed by Congress MLA from Amreli and Leader of Opposition in Gujarat Assembly, Pareshbhai Dhanani, has sought a direction to the EC to hold the bypolls together.A press note issued by the poll panel on June 15 scheduled the election for both the seats on July 5. The EC clarified that the vacancies for bypolls to all Houses, including Rajya Sabha, are considered “separate vacancies” and separate notifications are issued and separate polls are held, though the schedule can be the same. But Gujarat Congress chief Amit Chavda told reporters the EC decision was “unconstitutional” and the BJP has “pressured” the EC to hold the bypolls separately. Reacting to Chavda’s accusations, Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani said bypolls to Rajya Sabha are held separately, which is why the EC decided to issue separate notifications. Shah has been given the charge of Union Home Ministry and Irani Women and Child Development Ministry.
