4 most important growth stocks to buy and watch in the currentrStock market rally


Dow Jones Futures Today: Treasury Yields, Oil Prices

Before Tuesday’s opening bell, Dow Jones futures rose 0.2% above fair value while S&P 500 futures gained 0.25%. Tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 futures rose 0.3% from fair value.

What to do during the stock market rally

This is an important time to read IBD’s The Big Picture column with the stock trend back into a “confirmed uptrend”.

At this stage, it is important to be flexible. Despite the rebound in early November, investors should remain cautious by limiting their exposure to more than 40%. Wait for more confirmation of continued strength before adding more exposure. An immediate distribution in major equity indices would be a sign to stay more defensive.

If your recent stock purchases continue to progress, you should feel more confident in the stock market rally. But sharp reversals and losing trades would of course be signs to keep more of your powder dry.

All tails were wagging Friday after an Evans Fire Protection District lifeguard pulled a dog out of a freezing pond.

The ice broke and the dog was trapped, according to the agency, and got stuck in the freezing water.

“This morning, A-shift responded to a local pond for a dog stuck in the ice,” the agency wrote on Facebook Friday. “A rescue swimmer was able to [to] reach the dog and bring him ashore where he was warmed up and taken to the vet for evaluation and we are happy to report he should be fine.”

Firefighter Brian Igli was the rescue swimmer who entered the water, an agency spokeswoman told CBS News Colorado. The dog was able to stand in the shallow but freezing water, but appeared to be so cold that he could not move to get out.

The Evans Fire Protection District takes this opportunity to urge caution around frozen lakes and ponds, or those that may appear frozen: “This is a reminder that with the lower temperatures we are seeing, ice has begun to form on ponds and small bodies of Always assume that ice is not safe for you or your pets.

Evans Fire Protection District


A spokeswoman for the agency said no one took responsibility for owning the dog and they weren’t even immediately able to determine who called 911. As a result, an Evans police officer took the dog to an emergency vet.

A spokesperson for the Evans Police Department told CBS News Colorado that one of its officers took the dog to the Humane Society of Weld County, whose response we await for further information.

Similar events happened last year – in Denver Pond in November and one Fort Collins Lake in December.

“We would just like to remind people to be careful in open water,” agency spokeswoman Sharon Bowles said. “The water is starting to freeze, but it’s not solid or safe to walk on.”

  • Investors pile into riskier assets
  • Cryptocurrencies remain under pressure

NEW YORK, Nov 11 (Reuters) – The dollar fell broadly for the second day in a row on Friday as investors favored riskier currencies following colder-than-expected U.S. inflation data that bolstered arguments in favor of an easing of the Federal Reserve. sharp increases in interest rates.

Friday’s dollar weakness was an extension of a move sparked after Thursday’s data showed U.S. consumer inflation rose 7.7% year-on-year in October, its slowest rate since January. and lower than forecast by 8%.

The dollar’s long rally over the past two years has drawn a host of dollar bulls leading to crowded positioning and Thursday’s data left many looking for a quick exit, strategists said.

“It’s not just the short-term trend followers, the momentum players that need to get out of their positions, but some long-term structural dollar positions need to be unwound,” said Marc Chandler, chief market strategist at Bannockburn Global Forex in New York.

The dollar was down 1.41% against the Japanese yen at 138.96 yen; while the euro advanced 1.09% against the greenback at $1.0322.

The dollar found little support in Friday’s survey data which showed U.S. consumer confidence fell in November, driven by lingering concerns about inflation and rising borrowing costs.

The risk-sensitive Australian and New Zealand dollars both rose more than 1% against the greenback.

Against a basket of currencies, the dollar was down around 3% over two sessions, on pace with its biggest two-day percentage loss since March 2009. The index is up around 19% for the year.

“Yes, more people have become convinced that the dollar has peaked, but the move has been so sharp that I advise people against chasing it,” Bannockburn’s Chandler said.

Investors’ risk appetite received an additional boost from China’s health authorities, who eased some of the country’s strict COVID-19 restrictions, including shortening quarantine times for close contacts. cases and incoming travellers.

The futures market shows that investors are pricing in a 71.5% chance of a 50 basis point US rate hike next month, up from around 50/50 a week ago.

The pound, meanwhile, rose 0.58% against the dollar to $1.17785 after UK data showed the economy did not contract as much as expected in the three months since. ending in September, although it is still entering what is expected to be a long recession.

The dollar was down 1.8% against the Swiss franc at 0.94655 francs after Swiss National Bank President Thomas Jordan said on Friday that the bank was ready to take “all necessary measures” to bring inflation back to its target range of 0-2%.

Cryptocurrencies remained under pressure given the ongoing turmoil in the crypto world following the fall of FTX exchange. FTX’s native token, FTT, was last down 20.8% at $2.952, taking its month-to-date losses to almost 90%.

Bitcoin fell 4.1% to $16,836.

By sydney

I don’t know why, but it always has been. When it comes to “interesting” articles, my curiosity is piqued. Maybe it’s because when I was a little razor (i.e. years before I started shaving), a grandfather used to tell scary (but true) stories and his son, Uncle Jim, told wild stories (which may or may not have been created using non-prescription pharmaceuticals. Don’t judge, this was in the early 1970s). Whatever the reason, I’ve always loved weird news. I like ghost stories. I love BigFoot stories. And, of course, I love stories of unidentified flying objects, the UFO still in love.

My favorite TV show as a kid in the 1970s was Kolchak: The Night Stalker. It was about a reporter tracking down and taking care of vampires, werewolves, and all kinds of ghosts and spooky things. This show captured my imagination and, truth be told, set me on the path to becoming a journalist later in life.

So it didn’t surprise me at all that when a message popped up in my email inbox that the Genesee County District Library was having a live virtual program called “UFOs Over Michigan”, I immediately signed up to watch it.

It was released on Youtube on October 27. And, for the record, even though I watched it on the couch that night, I watched the entire program. Yes, I didn’t fall asleep (which I usually do when watching a show or movie on the couch.)

For about 90 minutes, Bill Konkolesky, the Michigan director for the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON for geeks in the know) explained how Michigan is a bit of a hotspot for UFO activity. Based in Cincinnati, Ohio, MUFON “is a US-based nonprofit organization made up of civilian volunteers who study reported UFO sightings. It is one of the oldest and largest organizations of its kind, claiming over 4,000 members worldwide with chapters and representatives in over 43 countries and all 50 states. It was founded in 1969.

Get a load of this!

According to Konkolesky, there are about 200 UFO sightings reported to MUFON from Michigan per year. Excuse me, the new term for UFOs is UAP (unexplained aerial phenomena). Whatever you want to call them, I’ll stick with what I grew up with, because I’m that inflexible, unchanging, grumpy old man who keeps wondering why “they” always change the words and change the meaning of words. (But, that’s another column, now where was I?)

So if there are about 200 sightings a year, that’s something over 2,000 in a decade. He also said that about 95% of sightings can be explained or “identified”. That leaves five percent who are still unidentified. That’s still a lot of weird UFO sightings in Michigan’s skies. By the way, I always keep my eyes up in the sky in case something goes wrong up there. Fortunately I can report that I have not seen a UFO, just as I have never seen a ghost (although my aunt does) or BigFoot (although my uncle said he heard one while camped in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina – refer back to non-prescription pharmaceuticals). And, I say “luckily” because even though I’m intrigued by these things, I really don’t want to see them. I’m a coward and I’m not sure I would stay, watch and then report something like this. Kolchak, I am not.

Konkolesky said Michigan was the center of two of the nation’s biggest UFO cases.

The first case dates back to 1966 in the Hillsdale College area. According to the story, a number of female students observed flashing lights hovering over campus. The law was called, college, city and state police converged on campus. Yeah, they saw it. Just like more than 100 people. The United States government got involved and sent its best astrophysicist and scientific consultant for the USAF Project Blue Book, J. Allen Hynek. His investigation concluded that it was not a UFO, but simply swamp gas.

Outraged, then-US Congressman Gerald Ford called a congressional hearing on the matter. And then it’s gone.

The other big case happened in 1994, along Lake Michigan. According to Konkolesky, on March 8 of that year, more than 300 people in Michigan counties reported seeing strange lights in the sky that night. A meteorologist from the National Weather Service station near Muskegon Airport saw the objects on radar. Again, law enforcement officials have also seen the lights. For hours, the weather guy tracked the objects on radar. He said the UFO would move at about 100 miles per hour, stop, then vacuum up and climb to 5,000 feet in the blink of an eye. He said the main object broke up into smaller objects and then tracked southwest over Lake Michigan. At one point he said the objects had to travel around 7,200 mph. Afterwards, government officials told him to shut up, and he was reassigned to another station outside of Michigan. The official response was a temperature inversion on the lake.

Konkolesky said the new Unsolved Mysteries Netflix series dedicated an entire episode to this event. It aired on October 18 and was titled “Something in the Sky”. (Yes, I then watched that episode.)

Konkolesky ended his presentation by inviting viewers to become members of MUFON or even become field investigators for the Michigan chapter. Hmm? I have crazy journalistic skills and I’m known for investigating. Should I?

Surely not!

A playoff berth is now a real long shot for Dabo Swinney and Clemson (TigerNet)

Saturday night’s big loss at Notre Dame dropped Clemson seven spots from 5th to 12th among voters in the AP poll. They also sent the Irish back in the standings to 20th place. Georgia remains at the top of the AP Top 25 and received 62 of 63 votes for first place. The other went to No. 2 Ohio State. Michigan moved up a spot to No. 3 and TCU moved up three spots to No. 4.

Tennessee, tied with Ohio State for No. 2 last week, fell to No. 5 after its lopsided loss to Georgia. Oregon, LSU, Southern Cal, UCLA and Alabama round out the top 10.

Coastal Carolina received enough votes to accumulate 46 points, and USC also received votes worth six points.

A former abalone diver wants architects of a new marine park to ban fishing at a white shark hotspot to prevent filmmakers from using bait to annoy predators.

Salisbury Island, about 85 nautical miles southeast of Esperance on the south coast of WA, has held a special place in Marc Payne’s heart since he first dived there in 1998 and l found teeming with white sharks.

The place is among the “hope spots” designated by the conservation organization Mission Blue, which are areas “scientifically identified as essential to the health of the ocean”.

Mr Payne said it was one of the only shark hotspots in the world that remained relatively untouched and free from activities such as ecotourism and cage diving.

But he said he was threatened by documentary makers using bait to stir up water and stoke sharks for their cameras.

“At Esperance, obviously, there are a lot of problems with sharks and bait,” he said.

“A lot of people don’t like it – obviously we have our problems with shark attacks in town.

“[And] scientifically there is a massive amount of evidence to keep this place as it is – where we don’t go there and change [shark] baiting behavior.

Mr Payne, whose wife Shelley Payne is a Labor MP, was not against any shooting.

He himself has made documentaries about sharks in the area, with a university collaboration involving the use of baited cameras.

But he was against filmmakers who dropped large quantities of chum into the water column alongside their boats, without clear ethical, scientific or community consideration.

The issue has caused tension in the past, as some feared that using chum would lead sharks to associate boats and humans with food.

A spokesman for the Ministry of Primary Industries and Regional Development said the use of attractants was prohibited “when shark tourism on aquatic eco-tours or fishing trips”.

He said the department has banned the use of white shark attractants in certain locations, to take or attempt to take protected fish like white sharks and if they include blood or offal.

Mr Payne said a plan to create a new marine park offered the perfect opportunity to eradicate the practice around Salisbury.

Call for a fishing ban

The state government and traditional owners are currently developing the South Coast Marine Park, which could stretch from Bremer Bay to the South Australian border.

Mr Payne said that as part of this process, the waters around Salisbury Island could be declared a no-take zone.

He believed this was the easiest way to prevent chumming, otherwise the use of bait in the fishing industry could create loopholes.

A ministry spokesman did not comment on his request, saying that with the planning process for the marine park underway, he could not say what activities might be permitted or what permits might be required.

A spokesman for the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions said the protection status of high value areas, such as Salisbury Island, would be taken into account in drafting the park.

Mr Payne said the move should have minimal impact on commercial operators as it was already closed to gillnet fishing.

But WA Fishing Industry Council chief executive Darryl Hockey said a ban would create problems for other commercial fishermen, as they would be forced to operate in a smaller area.

“Yes, Salisbury Island is very important, but there are hundreds of other islands along the coast which are also very important,” he said.

“If we start locking areas, it means our fishers have less and less access to this resource, which means we end up importing more and more food from abroad – often from unsustainable sources.

“It is important that we always have access to these areas to ensure that they are fished carefully and lightly.”

He thought it would be possible to introduce a rule prohibiting chumming for cinematic purposes but allowing commercial fishing.

Low impact tourism opportunity

Mr Payne said stopping chumming would create low-impact opportunities on the island.

He said it would be more appealing to high-profile filmmakers, who wanted to capture the sharks in an authentic way – using hidden cameras to film them going about their business rather than feeding on piles of bait.

He also said a virtual tourism experience could be created, where cameras would be dropped underwater to be broadcast live to audiences around the world.

“Then your schools, your universities, your authorities and the general public will be able to log in and see this place without anyone needing to be there,” he said.

“I think it’s a step forward to deal with environments like Salisbury in the future.”

He said the value of the location should not be determined solely in monetary terms, but in environmental and educational terms.

Police in Laval, a suburb of Montreal, on Monday found the body of a one-month-old baby who had been missing since the car his mother was driving crashed into a river on Friday.

The boy was in a vehicle with his mother and four-year-old sister that plunged into the Rivière des Mille Îles in an area northwest of Laval shortly before 5 p.m. Friday.

Provincial police divers found the child’s body around 10:15 a.m. Monday, about three hours after teams began a third day of the search. The mother and second child survived, but police said the mother remained in critical condition on Monday.

const. Stephanie Beshara said divers found the body at the bottom of the shallow river not far from where the vehicle entered the water.

Beshara said the investigation is ongoing, but investigators believe the accident could have been deliberate. “There is information that leads us to believe that this was potentially a voluntary act by the mother,” she said.

The 40-year-old mother was hospitalized in critical condition and unable to speak to investigators, so they don’t know the full circumstances surrounding the crash, Beshara said.

The four-year-old girl was rescued and discharged from hospital on Friday evening and is being cared for by family members.

Police spent the weekend searching for the missing baby, with provincial police divers and a helicopter joining local police and fire crews.

This report from The Canadian Press was first published on October 31, 2022.

Comment

Three years after medically retiring from the US Navy with a permanent disability, former US Navy diver Julius “Jay” McManus is one step closer to completing a long-awaited mission: he is preparing to participate Sunday at the 47th Marine Corps Marathon as a rim pusher.

“I am the father of three children. I run to show my family and my community that whatever obstacles we can always overcome, we can keep moving forward,” McManus said. “The real reality is that there is also a big selfish part. I’m not just running to show them, but I’m running to prove to myself that I’m better than my injuries. I am better today than yesterday and I will continue to improve tomorrow.

McManus joined the Navy in 1997 and entered diving school in 2005. By 2008 he had dived on numerous recovery missions, including one involving a WWII B-24 off Papua, in New Guinea. However, his diving career changed after an accident in Panama City Beach, Florida in 2010.

While traveling with the Navy’s Experimental Diving Unit, McManus was stung by a stingray, with the barb remaining inside his patellar tendon. The beard was not detected by the first X-rays and remained in his knee for several months, impairing his mobility. This led to six knee surgeries and his eventual retirement from the Navy.

McManus spent a year at the National Intrepid Center of Excellence in rehabilitation. His injuries from his time in the Navy included “dead spots” in his brain from traumatic injury, severe spinal damage, and a lump in his throat from radiation exposure. He was later diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder following multiple battle outbursts.

After his treatment, McManus struggled to be separated from his passions and his career. He spoke openly about his struggles with anxiety and depression.

“I touched some very dark places. I planned to end my existence and I was trying to figure out the best way to do that without negatively impacting my family,” McManus said. “I am went to an introductory adaptive sports camp with the Navy Wounded Warrior program, and it was through that camp that I found a renewed sense of purpose and a renewed sense of self.”

This sparked an awakening in McManus’ competitive spirit. It was reintroduced to running – different from the handcycle in both the posture (more leaning forward) and the lack of pedals to propel the athlete; runners use their hands on the rim itself – through the Semper Fi and America’s Fund through their “Runner’s Battalion” and have become infatuated. The organization assists injured veterans and their family members in all branches of military service. Through the fund’s athletic program, 84 service members will run and 23 will handcycle the full marathon this year.

“Jay is an example of the many reasons I do what I do,” said Sam Tickle, director of the fund’s sports program. “Being a veteran myself, I want to help those I served with and those who came before and after me. It’s an incredible feeling. It’s a lot of work, but the result is beyond words.

Initially, McManus planned to compete as a handcycle athlete. However, when he suggested the possibility of becoming a wheel-drive athlete, the fund took extra steps to help him achieve his goal. This put him in touch with Joey Peters, a research specialist at the University of Illinois who is one of the US Paralympic track and marathon coaches.

DC-area street closures scheduled for Sunday’s Marine Corps Marathon

Working with Peters and other trainers, McManus honed his form relentlessly. Prior to his training with Peters, his mile time was around nine minutes. A few months later, his mile time now falls into the four-minute range. After running the Marine Corps Marathon virtually for the past two years, McManus is looking forward to running alongside his fellow service members and showing off his hard work.

“The opportunity to run this race in this place with these people…it’s an honour. It’s a privilege,” McManus said. “It’s hard to imagine what three years of anticipation will look like at the end of [of the race]but I can’t wait to find out.

While finishing the Marine Corp Marathon will mark a milestone, McManus is already looking for his next sporting challenge. Top of the list: Transitioning to paratriathlon with eyes on the 2023 U.S. Championships.

But McManus must take care of Sunday’s business first.

“I am beyond thrilled to, after three years of anticipation and training, make it to the Marine Corps Marathon,” McManus said. “Part of me is absolutely terrified because I’ve heard stories on the hills. But I am very confident.
