So, full of anticipation, I stopped by my local grocers only to be met by a horrible sign. Mangoes: £2.40. Each. What? Since when? Since inflation started spiralling out of control, that is. Chinese price rises are the latest big figure to spook us, with inflation jumping to 32-month highs at 5.4 per cent in March. As a viewer rightly pointed out the other day, we now follow Chinese inflation much more closely than US inflation. The Beijing authorities have been putting a lot of effort into cooling down their economy’s still rapid expansion. China is the second-largest consumer of oil, but with its strong growth story continuing, Beijing may be forced to hike interest rates again to attempt to slow consumption just a little bit more. Yesterday, the Chinese central bank announced that reserve ratios will rise 0.5 points from 21 April, taking the requirement to a new record for big institutions. But it’s not just China. Despite the Reserve Bank of India having raised rates eight times since March 2010, they may have to hit the markets again, this time with a bold 0.5 per cent rate hike in early May to combat inflation of nearly nine per cent.In the Eurozone, inflation is at a fresh 29-month high of 2.7 per cent, with a record increase in March. And in Britain, although March showed a fall in CPI inflation to four per cent, economists still think it will rise over the next few months, maybe even hitting the five per cent mark within the year. In the US, while prices still are on an upward trend, analysts think subdued labour costs will keep a lid on inflation. There the issue instead seems to be centered on what the Federal Reserve should do once its $600bn asset-buying scheme comes to an end in June, and how the market will react to having stimulus withdrawn. EURO CURRENCY WOESDo keep your eyes on the currency markets. We have become immune to European debt worries, but with its latest downgrade, Moody’s now has Ireland below the levels assigned by both Fitch and Standard & Poor’s and that is putting a bit of pressure on an otherwise resilient euro. More worrying, short-dated Greek bond yields have been spiking to record highs despite the authorities denying that an imminent debt restructuring was on the cards. This has also been adding to some nervous euro trades. But, for now, the currency trend is still intact. Currency analysts tell me they think the euro will continue to be supported against sterling on expectations that the European Central Bank will hike rates before the Bank of England. The US Fed doesn’t seem to be in a hurry to hike rates either, helping the weak dollar story stay intact. But it is definitely a case of watch this space.Louisa Bojesen co-anchors European Closing Bell weekdays on CNBC.Twitter: @louisabojesen Price of mangoes shows how inflation is biting whatsappcenter_img Sunday 17 April 2011 10:16 pm Share Tags: NULL KCS-content last_img read more

NY Governor sets reopening date for casinos

first_img New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has announced that the state’s casinos will be permitted to reopen next week, having been closed for almost six months as a result of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.The state’s casinos, which closed their doors on 16 March due to Covid-19, will reopen from Wednesday 9 September, subject to strict safety protocols. The order applies to the state’s four commercial casinos and racetrack casinos.They are among the last casinos in the US to reopen following the mass closures that swept the country in the wake of the pandemic.All venues will be limited to 25% occupancy, while patrons will be required to wear masks at all times except when eating or drinking – with no beverage or food service on the gaming floor.Initially only slots will be permitted, provided there is at least six feet between machines, and table games will only be allowed once physical barriers are put in place, and approved by the New York Gaming Commission.The state regulator will also be deployed to monitor properties, and ensure all safety measures are followed to the letter.Additional staff must be deployed to control occupancy, traffic flow and seating, and enhanced cleaning and disinfection controls must be implemented.Casinos will also be required to have enhanced air filtration, ventilation and purification standards in place before they are permitted to reopen.“New Yorkers have done an extraordinary job – we flattened the curve in a way that no expert thought was possible,” Governor Cuomo said. “We’ve made the determination that we can safely reopen casinos with enhanced air filtration and strict safety protocols including mandatory masks and social distancing.“This is good news and the right next step in our data-driven, phased reopening which is working.”Read the full story on iGB North America. 4th September 2020 | By contenteditor New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has announced that the state’s casinos will be permitted to reopen next week, having been closed for almost six months as a result of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

Meet Harlequins half-backs Danny Care and Marcus Smith

first_imgThe forwards have been brilliant for the last few months, which makes it a lot easier for me to play if defences are preoccupied with the nine and forwards.DC: As Marcus says, the coaches have been brilliant in how receptive they’ve been and what we’ve done in training has translated onto the pitch. There’s been a massive focus on getting the ball in our hands and getting the forwards comfortable with the ball and linking the play. The set-piece has been brilliant; we couldn’t do our stuff without that.Then it’s about giving him the ball in space and leaving him to it because we’ve got some of the best finishers in the league.Is that input with the coaches what sparked the turnaround mid-season?DC: A few things aligned at the right time. The weather is better so the ball is drier and the pitches are firm, so we can show what we can do. The first six or seven games of the season were played in awful conditions.Then in the Six Nations we only lost Scott Steele and James Lang. Joe Marler not going away with England was massive because, for me, he’s been our best player consistently for the last few months; he’s been unbelievable. What he gives the group is different to anyone else. TAGS: Highlight Meet Harlequins half-backs Danny Care and Marcus SmithDanny Care remembers his first training session with Marcus Smith at Harlequins. Smith was in his last year at school but already there was something that marked him out as a future star.“What stuck out most is that he was screaming for the ball,” recalls Care. “He was telling people where he wanted the ball, where he wanted them to run. I was a bit blown away by him and excited for him to finish school so he could get out there with us.”The pair may be at opposite ends of the career spectrum, but they have developed an electrifying half-back partnership. Their recent form has helped spark a turnaround in Quins’ fortunes since Paul Gustard’s departure at the start of the year and they have reached the Gallagher Premiership play-offs for the first time in seven years.Here they talk hair, hopes and having fun…Who has the best hair?Danny Care: Him! I’ve had to pay for some of mine and it’s still nowhere near what I’d like it to be. When I look at Marcus, the one thing I’d take is his goosestep and then I’d take his hair. He’s got really girthy hair, it’s thick. It’s what you can only dream of having.Marcus Smith gets away from Leicester’s Jasper Wiese (Getty Images)Marcus, if you could take anything from Danny what would it be?Marcus Smith: I’d take his beard; I’ve never been able to grow facial hair.And I’d take his chat probably.How do you get on off the pitch?DC: We bounce off each other really well. I see a bit of myself in Marcus. He’s a young lad who has come to London and plays with a smile on his face, which is something I’ve always tried to do, and enjoys himself off the field, which I think is key to having a good balance in life.He doesn’t take himself too seriously, but from day one he’s led this team unbelievably well. On the pitch he’s serious and off the field we can have a laugh and enjoy each other’s company.MS: Ever since I’ve stepped into the club, he’s looked after me, along with the other older players. Deece, being so close to me in the back-line, always encourages me to back myself. Growing up, watching him play, he always played with a smile on his face and that’s how I get the best out of myself.Did you find it easy to form that half-back relationship?DC: He came in with so much pressure on him early doors. As an 18-year-old with the two senior fly-halves injured, he got the opportunity probably quicker than he thought.What he’s done in a short space of time, I can’t stress how amazing it is. Young lads normally come in on the wing and play a few games but it is different to come in and be asked to lead a team fresh out of nappies as he was. The way he’s taken it in his stride is testament to him as a person.He’s very level-headed, always eager to learn… 100 games in three years is ridiculous, to play that many times in the ten shirt for one of the best clubs in England. The world is this lad’s oyster. MS: I’m still young, still learning. Deece has always helped me when I need advice off the field or on dealing with coaches. More than that, we get on a lot better off the field as I’ve got older. He always looks after me when we go out. Our connection off the field has improved massively and that’s down to him making me feel so comfortable.How important is that understanding between you on the pitch?DC: It’s huge. We’re definitely on a very similar wavelength of how we see the game, how we feel the game should be played, especially to suit the players we’ve got in this team.I know when he wants the ball because he’s loud and that’s the first thing you notice in a young lad, whether they’re loud; it shows that they’re confident and know what they’re doing. He got instant respect from the senior lads by leading the team and bossing the team.We have fun, that’s our main thing. I just say to him to be himself because what he’s got is special, not many people have got that, and I try to get him to show that. On the pitch, I try to take a bit of pressure off him to allow him to play his natural game because his natural game is better than anyone else’s I’ve seen in the Premiership.MS: Deece takes a lot of pressure off me. A big thing I’ve been working on is my game management and it doesn’t always come naturally to me.A few years ago at school it was ‘run it from everywhere and see what happens’. In my first game for Quins I don’t think I kicked at all in 70 minutes, now I think maybe I kick too much! It’s probably not the first thing Deece wants to do but unselfishly he takes that pressure off me, which allows me to express myself.As well as that, we have similar ideas and talk a lot off the pitch about rugby and situations. The way he drives the team and the way he delivers messages in the week, I try to echo. We have a similar style of play and a style that suits our players.Danny Care runs in a try against Bath (Getty Images)Do you have input into how the team approach a game?MS: I’d say we’ve got more of an input now than we used to. The coaches have been very receptive to the way we want to play and I think a lot of that is down to the way Danny orchestrates with the forwards. Then there’s the change in training, the way we try to play is more suitable to the players we’ve got… Everything has come together at the right time.We’re not foolish; we know we played against understrength teams during the Six Nations. We’ve still got a lot of work to do but that’s exciting; we know we’re only really scratching the surface.MS: Everyone who steps into the Quins building wants to win and put Quins where we feel they belong.Is the potential at the club the reason you have both re-signed?DC: We’re probably at different ends of the spectrum. I never looked anywhere else. There was a time when things haven’t been great the past few seasons but with the likes of Marcus sticking around, Alex Dombrandt, Joe Marchant, Louis Lynagh, those types of people, this club has good things coming to it.For me, I don’t know whether I’ll be there to see it all and live it all, but I’d like to help the team realise its potential and put it on the right path to have a really successful next five, ten, 15 years.MS: I had a good chat with some of the coaches and some senior players about the club’s direction. The vision the club sold me and the excitement I had with the young group we have here made it a very easy decision.I’ve come through with a lot of guys who are now playing in the first team, which is massively exciting, and as Danny says, we’re only scratching the surface. We’ve got a lot of exploring to do to see how good we can be, but based on my experience in the academy league I think we’ve got some of the best youngsters in England and we’re very lucky to represent such a prestigious club.What was the vision you were sold on?MS: Having successful years, not just winning one title but winning for a long time. I genuinely believe with the players we have, we’re in a very good position. If we can sprinkle that with some magic, we have the makings of a very good team.The style we’re trying to play now is just the beginning and if we can put that type of game on the park and execute to the best of our ability, I don’t think there are many teams who can live with us. That’s the most exciting thing.Does the young guys’ enthusiasm rub off on you, Danny?DC: You always get a lift from the young boys, their youthful exuberance. I like to think I’m still a big kid at heart, I like to have a laugh whenever I can. It’s so key to get that blend and that balance right, of older heads and youthful exuberance.Us older boys need stories from the weekend, we need lads to have done stupid stuff. Rugby is a brilliant sport but it can be really tough at times, so you need to have a lot of fun as well. It’s been really hard with lockdown, but we’ve tried to find little ways of doing it.What’s the best advice Danny’s given?MS: Don’t take life too seriously. When I first joined, I had a perception that I had to be on the straight and narrow all the time. There’s a time and place to do that, and I do take my rugby very seriously and it’s a priority in my life.However, Deece has taught me how to have fun and to do it whilst playing good rugby. I play my best rugby when I’m happy off the field, when my family are happy. So if I’m happy, it helps me perform to my best.DC: Something all my best coaches have said is, ‘Don’t think just do, back your first instincts’. This guy is the best attacking fly-half in the league; he’s got everything to go to the very top.I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before he’s given an opportunity to wear a white shirt and no one will be more proud – actually his mum and dad will probably be more proud – but it would mean an awful lot to me to see him wearing that No 10 shirt for England. It’s just whether the world is ready to see the magic.MS: Danny is playing some of his best rugby. In my second season he was unbelievable but I think he’s gone to a new level. He’s assisting tries for fun, he’s kicking us into good positions, his running game… Even his drop-goals are the best in England!center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS This article originally appeared in the June 2021 edition of Rugby World magazine.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

RFS Lays Groundwork for Strong Long-term Biodiesel Demand

first_img SHARE RFS Lays Groundwork for Strong Long-term Biodiesel Demand By Andy Eubank – Feb 25, 2014 Adjustments to the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) at the end of 2013 set up an environment for a stable long-term outlook for biodiesel demand, according to a new report from the Rabobank Food & Agribusiness Research (FAR) and Advisory group.“We saw a record level of biodiesel production in 2013 due to the expiration of the one dollar per gallon tax credit on biodiesel production and an anticipated soybean shortage in 2014,” notes report author and Rabobank analyst Al Griffin.According the Rabobank U.S. Biodiesel Outlook,  the U.S. biodiesel industry is expected to remain commoditized with tightening margins and periods of negative returns. The industry players best positioned for success are those focused on becoming the low cost producer, gaining access to multiple feedstock sources, and accessing adequate working capital to withstand volatile margins.“Increases in biodiesel production will bolster demand for soy oil, corn oil, canola oil, yellow grease, and palm oil, along with other, less common inputs,” says Griffin. “With biodiesel feedstock being split roughly evenly between soy oil and all other sources, the fats and oils sector will benefit from intensified production.”A key to the future of biodiesel is the advanced biofuel component of the (RFS), which is primarily fulfilled by biodiesel. While the advanced biofuel requirement could be met using sugar and sorghum-based ethanol, domestic production of both is limited and attaining economically competitive imports is challenging. Far more significant in supporting biodiesel production is the fact that future increases in the use of ethanol are “constrained as a result of infrastructure.” This snag, acknowledged by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), is generally referred to as the “blend wall.” Although the EPA has signaled that it will adjust its original RFS mandate levels during 2014, biodiesel will be less impacted than the other categories.Source: Rabobank Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Home Energy RFS Lays Groundwork for Strong Long-term Biodiesel Demand Previous articleHoosiers in Ag Head for San Antonio Commodity ClassicNext articleBayer Asks, What Does The World Need from Agriculture?

Greek public broadcaster censors reports from islands about new migrant camps

first_img The Greek police must show journalists can trust it with their protection after one was murdered and another is threatened Organisation GreeceEurope – Central Asia Condemning abusesOnline freedomsMedia independence InternetFreedom of expression Lesbos / AFP Reports from the islands about clashes between residents and police can no longer be posted on the ERT website by regional correspondents unless they first obtain the management’s approval. The censorship began when a reporter posted an article about the violent clashes that had been taking place for several days between riot police and residents of the Greek island of Lesbos over the new migrant camps there. Until then, the ERT website’s regional correspondents had enjoyed a degree of autonomy in the choice of articles to be published. But, a few hours after the author of this story refused to comply with the management’s request to remove it, her colleagues discovered that they could no longer post their own stories without first asking the management’s permission. ERT news chief Yiannis Daskalakis confirmed this change of policy to regional radio station director Michalis Messinis. News Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns Greek public TV and radio broadcaster ERT’s censorship of reporting from islands where a new influx of migrants and the creation of new migrant camps has triggered protests. Coverage of such a crucial subject clearly serves the public interest, RSF said. “The ERT management’s censorship of journalists working at the front line of the migrant crisis must stop,” RSF editor-in-chief Pauline Adès-Mével said. “In view of the scale and intensity of the anti-migrant clashes on several Greek islands, it is essential that local journalists are able to cover incidents freely and provide the Greek public with full and transparent reporting.” April 29, 2021 Find out more News News News Greece is ranked 65th out of 180 countries in RSF’s latest World Press Freedom Index.

Judy Chu (CA-27) released the following statement on the 81st anniversary of the signing of the Social Security Act by President Franklin Roosevelt:Eighty-one years ago today, President Roosevelt revolutionized our country and the way we care for our citizens when he signed the Social Security Act. Since that day, Social Security has become a cornerstone of our social safety net, ensuring that seniors who worked hard their whole lives will not be left to spend their final years in poverty. But Social Security is much more than just a promise of stability to seniors. Many Americans rely on it to get through a disability or the loss of a family member. Over 110,000 people in my district alone have come to count on Social Security for part of their income, allowing them to live with security and dignity. Social Security has been an economic and a moral success, dependably keeping millions out of poverty. But as our country grows, so must this program. That is why I strongly support expanding Social Security to meet the needs of our people today and ensure that it remains a viable option for our future generations as well.”President Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed the Social Security Act into law on August 14, 1935.center_img Community News Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  3 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Herbeauty15 things only girls who live life to the maximum understandHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyFinding The Right Type Of Workout For You According AstrologyHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty8 Easy Exotic Meals Anyone Can MakeHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyA 74 Year Old Fitness Enthusiast Defies All Concept Of AgeHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Questions To Start Conversation Way Better Than ‘How U Doing?’HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyAmazing Sparks Of On-Screen Chemistry From The 90-sHerbeautyHerbeauty Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.
