NEW YORK — Financial markets have become so in thrall to President Donald Trump’s tweets that J.P. Morgan has created an index to help identify how much volatility they’re creating.Strategists at the bank developed the “Volfefe” index by measuring which Trump tweets triggered big movements in Treasury yields, one of the world’s most closely followed markets.They found Trump is lately more active on Twitter, averaging more than 20 tweets and retweets per day, up from five in early 2017. Those tweets that do move the markets often focus on trade and the Federal Reserve and include the words “China,” ”billion” and “great.”J.P. Morgan said the index, named after Trump’s “covfefe” tweet, shows Trump’s tweets explain a “measureable fraction” of volatility, particularly in markets for shorter-term rates influenced by Fed policy.The Associated Press read more
In his latest report to the Security Council on the work of the United Nations Peace-building Support Office in Guinea Bissau (UNOGBIS), Mr. Annan says he is encouraged by the commitment of the national authorities to ensure the ballot takes place on schedule, and calls on all candidates to do their utmost to ensure a peaceful election on Sunday and to accept the results.While acknowledging the “serious challenges” facing the country, the Secretary-General commends the increasingly important role being played by Guinea-Bissau’s burgeoning network of civil society groups, “which has shown potential to positively influence change.” Further, he welcomes the reconciliation process under way within the military and the reaffirmation of the military leadership of its subordination to civilian authority. Mr. Annan also stresses that to facilitate crucial reform of the security and public administration sectors, it is essential to provide for the retraining of staff and the creation of social safety nets. He encourages the Security Council to finalize its response to the recommendations outlined in his previous report of 16 March 2005, to strengthen UNOGBIS and to enable it to meet the requirements of its mandate, which the Council revised last year. In the earlier report, Mr. Annan recommends, among other things, that the Office develop stable civil-military relations through a profound reform of the armed forces as an institution subordinate to democratic civilian authority, and that it also focus on promoting political dialogue that can generate consensus-building on critical national issues, such as the electoral process and consolidating peace and national reconciliation. read more

Les premiers milliers d’années de l’Univers se dévoilent peu à peuLes premières années de l’Univers après le Big Bang sont encore mal connues. Mais une équipe de chercheurs a réussi à apporter de nouvelles données intéressantes sur cette période agitée de l’histoire cosmique.On sait très peu de choses des premiers temps de l’Univers. Après le Big Bang, il était condensé en une sorte de bouillie chaude dont aucun photon, aucune particule de matière ne pouvait s’échapper. Il a ainsi fallu attendre 380.000 ans que l’Univers se refroidisse et laisse s’échapper ses premières lumières. Néanmoins, des chercheurs du laboratoire de Berkeley, en Californie, ont réussi à obtenir des indices concernant les tout premiers milliers d’années de l’Univers, de 100 à 300.000 ans seulement après le Big Bang.Pour cela, les chercheurs ont analysé des données issues du satellite européen Planck et du satellite de la NASA WMAP. Ils leur ont apporté des informations sur le Fond Cosmologique Diffus (FDC, ou CMB pour Cosmologic Microwave Background), un rayonnement magnétique “fossile”, présent dans tous l’Univers, résultant du Big Bang. Son étude permet de mieux comprendre le fonctionnement de l’Univers à ses débuts, ainsi que les mécanismes de son expansion.Excès de radiations “Il y a des indices indiquant que les radiations n’ont pas laissé si facilement que ça la place à la matière dans les premiers temps” explique Eric Linder, l’un des auteurs de l’étude publiée dans la revue Physical Review Letters. “Il semble qu’il y ait un excès de radiations qui ne soit pas dû aux photons du CMB”. Après le Big Bang, l’Univers était tellement chaud que matière, photons et radiations étaient mélangés et ne pouvaient s’échapper. Ce n’est qu’après 380.000 ans qu’il s’est suffisamment refroidi pour laisser diffuser lumière, matière et énergie. Le CMB représente ces tout premiers photons échappés du jeune Univers, encore observables aujourd’hui.Repousser les frontièresLinder et ses collègues de Berkeley sont parvenus à mesurer le CMB avec une plus grande résolution, moins de parasites et sur une surface de ciel plus grande. “Avec Planck et WMAP nous repoussons vraiment les frontières et nous regardons encore plus loin dans l’histoire de l’Univers, dans des régions aux hautes énergies auxquelles nous n’avions pas accès.”, explique le chercheur. À lire aussiBoisson, météorite et Facebook, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 5 septembre”Comme prévu, les photons reliques des suites du Big Bang ont été suivis par de la matière noire, mais nous avons noté une déviation des prédictions qui suggère la présence d’autres particules”. Selon lui, ces particules seraient des neutrinos “sauvages”, échappés de la soupe primitive. Aussi dans la liste des suspects, figure l’énergie noire, cette énergie invisible et anti-gravitationnelle qui accélère l’expansion de l’Univers.Les chercheurs soupçonnent cette jeune énergie noire d’être à l’origine de l’expansion de l’Univers. Peu après le Big Bang, celle-ci devait être des millions de fois plus concentrée que maintenant. Si on venait à la mettre en évidence (son existence n’est toujours que théorique), elle pourrait non seulement aider à mieux comprendre l’expansion de l’Univers, mais aussi renforcer la théorie des cordes et d’autres concepts de la physique des hautes énergies.”De nouvelles expériences pour mesurer la polarisation du CMB sont en cours, avec les télescopes POLARBEAR et SPTpol, qui nous emmènerons plus loin dans les principes de la physique”, conclut Eric Linder.Le 12 août 2013 à 09:49 • Emmanuel Perrin read more

Former Chelsea midfielder Dennis Wise believes retaining Eden Hazard is a must and revealed what he thinks they can do to ensure itThe Belgian winger is yet to commit his long-term future at Chelsea with his current contract set to expire in June 2020.Hazard has recently teased the possibility of fulfilling a childhood dream of his by signing for Real Madrid, who were strongly linked with a move for him last summer.But Wise reckons a few quality signings along with a top-four finish in the Premier League this season could enough to convince Hazard to stay at Stamford Bridge.“It’s very important to keep him,” Wise told Metro.“I think from a Chelsea point of view if they want to win trophies they need to keep Hazard.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“It’s very important because he’s such a quality player.“Every Chelsea fan would love to keep him and hopefully we can tie him up for longer.“But the important thing from Hazard’s point of view is what other personnel comes in at Chelsea Football Club and whether they can get back into the Champions League.“He wants to play Champions League football – he hasn’t this year – but if they can get that spot for next year and add a couple of top quality players then it can [help] change his mind.“He’d know then that the club can compete because at this moment Manchester City and Liverpool are in front.”Hazard has managed eight goals and six assists in 17 appearances this season for Chelsea, who will face league leaders Manchester City this Saturday. read more

J.R. Myers has secured a spot on the November ballot. (J.R. Myers for Alaska Governor 2014)Alaskans will have one more option in the governor’s race: The Division of Elections will allow Constitution Party candidate J.R. Myers to appear on the ballot.Listen now:The Alaska Constitution Party has just over 200 members, and it was first recognized by the state in 2011. Because the organization is so new and small, it doesn’t qualify as a political party under statute. Instead, it’s lumped in with the Green Party and Veterans Party as “political group,” a sort of electoral purgatory where candidates have to collect signatures to get their names on the ballot.Myers and his lieutenant governor running mate Maria Rensel each turned in over 4,000 names, exceeding the 3,017-signature threshold set by the Division of Elections to run for office.Rensel says they’re not looking to beat incumbent Gov. Sean Parnell. Instead, they’re aiming for a more manageable 3 percent of the vote in a fight for ballot access. That would upgrade them to official “party” status, and guarantee them an automatic spot on the ballot next cycle.“I’ve been telling people from the very beginning that we don’t have a snowball’s chance to take the race,” says Rensel. “It’s really about establishing this party.”Rensel, who is also vice chair of the party, adds that signature gathering was a good exercise, even if they want to avoid going through it again. The Constitution Party started collecting signatures in February, and they’ve upped their number of registered voters by 40. While that’s not a lot in the context of the Republican and Democratic parties, it amounts to a 25 percent increase in membership for them.“To me, it was a whole opportunity to get out and talk to people and see how many people were ready for this party,” says Rensel.The Constitution Party also has one legislative candidate who will appear on the ballot. Pamela Goode got the necessary 50 signatures to run in House District 9, which stretches from Delta Junction to Valdez. She will face Democrat Mabel Wimmer and Republican Jim Colver, who unseated incumbent Rep. Eric Feige in the primary.The Constitution Party is politically conservative, with an explicitly Christian worldview. Its goal, according to its platform, is to “restore American jurisprudence to its Biblical foundations and to limit the federal government to its Constitutional boundaries.” It has achieved some success in other states. In 2010, former Republican Congressman Tom Tancredo ran for governor in Colorado as a Constitution Party candidate and took nearly 40 percent of the vote. read more
Visakhapatnam: Vizag city police commissioner Rajiv Kumar Meena has ordered for the cancellation of Shakti teams here in the city, which was set up about four months ago for the protection of women. Recently, two members of the Shakti team have made a TikTok video during their duty hours and posted as their WhatsApp status, which has gone viral on social media. With this, the police higher officials have become serious over the issue. Also Read – Three of a family commits suicide at Amalapuram in East Godavari Advertise With Us In this context, the two constables concerned were warned and also issued memos. Suddenly, the officials have issued orders that 35 constables and home guards in the Shakti team should report at their police stations. On 25th April 2019, the then DGP RP Thakur launched Shakti teams to control the attacks on women, eve-teasing, kidnapping cases in the city. The women constables and home guards who got selected in the team were given training in driving, mechanism and personality development for a month. Also Read – Saaho movie tickets pricey in Nellore Advertise With Us CP Rajiv Kumar Meena said that this training would be not adequate to the present police constables. He said that they would be given more training, and the teams would be formed again once they become aware of the duties of the police station. He added that due to lack of supervision, these incidents happened, and with proper training, the Shakti teams will be reintroduced, he said. read more
Lakshmi’s NTRScreenshot of YouTube videoDirector RGV aka Ram Gopal Varma has taken a U-turn on the controversy of Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) declining to certify Lakshmi’s NTR for release.Lakshmi’s NTR is a controversial biopic which chronicles how Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu backstabbed his late father-in-law Nandamuri Tarak Rama Rao for power. The film is set to hit the screens on March 22. Many people in the Telugu states were wondering whether the CBFC will clear it for release without any cuts/mutes.Ram Gopal Varma has now alleged that the CBFC is delaying Lakshmi’s NTR due to political pressure. The director tweeted on Sunday, “Censor board is illegally acting on outside pressure and that’s why we are filing a case in court. CBFC in trying to delay the film for reasons of favouring someone is strangely relying on model code of conduct meant for political parties and contesting candidates #LakshmiNTR.”Ram Gopal Varma expressed his anguish over the CBFC playing the role of Election Commission (EC). He tweeted, “CBFC is assuming the jurisdiction of Election Commission which is not vested in it and is withholding certification of #LakshmiNTR and constitutionally it cannot partake the role of Election Commission.”The controversial filmmaker said that the EC itself has no authority to stall the release of any film. Ram Gopal Varma tweeted, “Election Commission derives its powers under Article 324 of the Constitution which empowers it to regulate the Election process the conduct of contesting candidates and Political parties and it has no jurisdiction on exhibition of films #LakshmiNTR.”Ram Gopal Varma had also denied that Lakshmi’s NTR would favour any political party. The director tweated, “#LakshmiNTR By refusing to watch #LakshmisNTR by assuming what might be in the film, It is clear that CBFC is over reaching its authority in trying to favour someone.”Ram Gopal Varma added, “The CBFC has no authority to postpone watching the film on the ground of model code for conduct even before viewing, which amounts to a blatant violation of fundamental right of Freedom of Expression guaranteed under Article 19 of the Constitution of India.”The filmmakers also revealed that he would hold a press meet on Monday to explain the issue in detail. Ram Gopal Varma tweeted, “Me and my advocate Mr. Ponnavolu Sudhakar Reddy are going to address a press meet tmrw 18th mrng 10 AM at Prasad lab to reveal about CBFC ILLEGALLY TRYING TO STOP #LakshmisNTR ..We will be telling the details about how it will be dragged to court.”Minutes later, Ram Gopal Varma surprised everyone by saying that the matter has been solved. He announced, “There has been an unfortunate misunderstanding between our office and the CBFC which has now been cleared ..The CBFC is now doing the necessary action as per the laid down procedure ..Hence our press meet against the CBFC is cancelled ..Jai NTR #LakshmiNTR.”This sudden U-turn of Ram Gopal Varma has raised many eyebrows in the film industry. Some feel that it must be the publicity stunt of the director, who is known for his crazy promotional strategies.Ram Gopal Varma had also released a letter with the headline – “I am filing a case on the Censor Board for illegally stopping Lakshmi’s NTR.” In this letter, the director had blasted the CBFC and revealed his decision to drag it to the court. Here is his detailed letter. read more
The Swiss government said on Tuesday that the Indian authorities have sought details regarding Indore-based textiles firm Neo Corp International for suspected black money transactions.Neo Corp is the latest name disclosed by the Swiss government in its official gazette, apart from the many Indian names it has revealed in the past few months, PTI reported.In February this year, the income tax department had conducted raids on some of the company’s premises for possible tax violations.Neo Corp, which started its journey as a small woven sack maker in 1985, has been promoted by K S Trivedi. From a humble beginning three decades ago, the company now claims to be a multinational technical textiles group.As part of its crackdown on black money, the Modi government has been requesting information about many individuals since last year. The NDA government had promised during its election campaign last May to bring back black money stashed outside the country.In May this year, the Swiss officials named seven Indians publicly in Switzerland’s Federal Gazette as holding Swiss bank accounts, including noted businessman Yash Birla, son-in-law of late realty and liquor baron Ponty Chadha.The rest included Ritika Sharma, Sneh Lata Sawhney, Sangita Sawhney, Gurjit Singh Kochar, apart from Sayed Mohamed Masood, who was being probed for running a Ponzi scheme, referred to as ‘City Limousines scam’. Another person associated with the scam, Chaud Kauser Mohamed Masood, was also been named in the gazette.So far, the Swiss authorities have publicly revealed nearly a dozen Indian names.Neo Corp will be allowed to appeal against the “administrative assistance” before the Federal Administrative Court within 30 days.In a regulatory filing to the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) on 22 May, Neo Corp had said that “it was cooperating with the tax authorities.”The Neo Corp stock closed nearly 5% down at Rs 33.45 on the BSE on Wednesday.The company earned revenues of Rs 744 crore and net profit of Rs 30 crore during the financial year ending 31 March, 2015. read more
Police stand guard at the scene of a suspected terrorist attack during a pop concert by US star Ariana Grande in Manchester, northwest England on May 23, 2017. AFPTwenty-two people, including children, were killed and dozens injured when a man detonated a bomb at a pop concert by US star Ariana Grande, in Britain’s deadliest terror attack in 12 years.Screaming fans, many of them teens, fled the venue in panic after the bomb blast at the end of the concert in the northern English city of Manchester on Monday evening.”There was heat on my neck and when I looked up there were bodies everywhere”, Elena Semino, who was waiting for her 17-year-old daughter, told the Guardian newspaper.Semino, who was herself injured, said she had been standing by the ticket office of the 21,000-capacity indoor Manchester Arena when the explosion went off.”A huge bomb-like bang went off that hugely panicked everyone and we were all trying to flee the arena”, said Majid Khan, 22, who was at the show with his sister.Ambulances and bomb disposal teams rushed to the venue, as family members frantically searched for their loved ones, and residents opened their doors to stranded concert-goers after trains were cancelled.There were children among the 22 killed in the attack, while 59 people were injured, Greater Manchester Police chief Ian Hopkins said early Tuesday.British Prime Minister Theresa May condemned the “appalling terrorist attack” and suspended her campaign ahead of a general election on June 8 along with chief opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn.”All our thoughts are with the victims and the families of those who have been affected,” said May, who was due to chair an emergency ministerial meeting at around 0800 GMT on Tuesday.Grande, who was due to give a concert in London later on Tuesday, said she was “broken” in a tweet.”Broken. From the bottom of my heart, I am so, so sorry. I don’t have words,” wrote the 23-year-old, who is popular with teens and pre-teens.The attack was the deadliest in Britain since July 7, 2005 when four suicide bombers inspired by Al-Qaeda attacked London’s transport system during rush hour, killing 52 people and wounding 700 more.The Manchester blast recalled the November 2015 attack at the Bataclan concert hall in Paris in which armed men wearing explosive belts stormed in and killed 90 people. That attack was claimed by the Islamic State jihadist group.’A massive flash’Police were called to the scene at the Manchester Arena concert and sports venue at 2133 GMT.Manchester Arena said the blast “took place outside the venue in a public space”, while police said it was “within the foyer area of the stadium.”The foyer connects the auditorium with Victoria train and tram station, a major transport hub on the northern edge of the city centre.One witness, Gary Walker, told BBC Radio 5 Live he was hit by shrapnel in his foot and his wife sustained a stomach wound as they waited for their daughters.”We heard the last song go and then suddenly there was a massive flash and then a bang and smoke,” he said.Isabel Hodgins, an actress who had been at the concert, told Sky News: “Everybody was panicking, there was pushing up the stairs.”The corridor was full, it smelled of burning, there was quite a lot of smoke as we were leaving.”It’s just shocking and we just feel very shaken up. We’re just lucky to have gotten away safely,” she said.Calvin Welsford, 18, from Bristol told the BBC: “It almost sounded like a gunshot”.”I looked around and people were just spilling down, heading out of the building”.”I was actually having an asthma attack. It was sheer panic,” he said.US ‘ready to assist’Hopkins said investigators were “working closely with the national counter terrorism policing network and UK intelligence partners”.The US Department of Homeland Security, Britain’s biggest intelligence partner, said it was “closely monitoring” the situation.”We are working with our foreign counterparts to obtain additional information about the cause of the reported explosion as well as the extent of injuries and fatalities,” the department said in a statement.Tributes poured in for Manchester from around the world.Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Canadians were “shocked by the news of the horrific attack,” while EU president Donald Tusk wrote: “My heart is in Manchester this night.”French President Emmanuel Macron said he was “horrified” by the attack.Pop world ralliesThe pop world also rallied, with Katy Perry tweeting: “Praying for everyone at Ariana Grande’s show”.US pop princess Taylor Swift, a friend of Grande, wrote: “My thoughts, prayers and tears for all those affected by the Manchester tragedy tonight”.In Manchester, residents tweeted with the hashtag #RoomforManchester to offer a place to stay and there were reports of taxis taking passengers for free.”We have a spare double bed and two sofas available if anybody needs a place tonight,” tweeted @iamjesyrae.Concerned relatives used the hashtag #MissinginManchester to locate loved ones.Train services to and from Manchester Victoria Station — located under the Arena — were cancelled.”Disruption is expected to continue until the end of the day,” National Rail said in a statement.Read more:19 killed in UK terror attack read more
By Micha Green, AFRO Washington, D.C. Editor, firstname.lastname@example.orgSix Black males have been murdered in the month of December- all under the age of 40. Gerald Watson was only 15. Gerald was a ninth grader at Anacostia High School. Gerald was on a recreation football team. Gerald was part of a late-night basketball league called “Shoot Hoops Not Bullets.” On Dec. 13. Gerald was chased down by two-masked aggressors and shot nine times in a stairwell of an apartment building.Hours before Gerald’s life was taken he was at school helping a friend deal with a personal crisis according to The Washington Post. Anacostia High School student Gerald Watson, 15, was killed on Dec. 13 in Southeast, D.C. A vigil remembering his life will be held on Dec. 19 at 6:30 p.m.“I try to read between the lines and try to understand what is going on behind the facade of people,” Nathan Luecking, a social worker at Anacostia High School who knew Gerald told The Post. “I got a strong, decent, helpful presence about him.”At approximately 3:39 p.m., officers from the Seventh District reported to the 2900 block of Knox Place Southeast, after reports of gunshots, according to a Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) press release. When they arrived they found Gerald suffering from gunshot wounds. When D.C. Fire and Emergency Medical Services reported to the scene they began life-saving efforts and transported him to a local hospital, to no avail. He was officially pronounced dead 35 minutes later.Gerald had run into the apartment building next door to the one where his mother and grandmother resided. A painful loss, as he was only 15 and violently taken from this earth, MPD Police Chief Peter Newsham emphasized the “heartbreaking” nature of the murder only 12 days before Christmas.In addition to several tributes posted, people have been using social media to encourage someone to speak out on who killed Gerald.“Somebody knows who did it.
