So this category does well to target the true discretionary spending. Now if the chart trend appears strong or even flat then we can be confident consumers have not yet pulled back on even the most discretionary of items and so any variations in the overall spending patterns are likely not worrisome. However, if we see a sharp pull back here it is indicative that a downturn in the overall spending trend is likely substantive rather than nuance. Let’s have a look.
“When you step back a bit and look at enduring strategic problems,” he said, “then you look at the Middle East, where you have terrorism and proxy wars and the danger of religious wars and dangers of sectarian conflict.” He warns that religious and sectarian wars tend to be viciously heartfelt, and therefore bloody and protracted.
It was reported that Austria is now planning a wide-ranging reform of deposit insurance, abandoning government insurance for deposits. The new view states the people should pay attention to the banks, since politicians are bribed way too much, and regulators cannot do their job anyway. This is where it starts. We already have bail-in legislation from the USA to Switzerland. We can count on this type of insurance vanishing when the system crashes and burns.
In a city rocked by unrest this week, and now under curfew and patrolled by National Guard troops, Ms. Mosby’s announcement on the steps of the War Memorial downtown drew cheers from the assembled crowd while a nearby cordon of officers in riot gear looked on stonily. As word spread, people in parts of the city took to the streets in spontaneous celebration.
“I had two options today right, either come and talk to y’all and get my credibility straight with ya’ll and not get killed by these [expletive] or not tell a true story,” Allen added. “The only reason I’m doing this is because they put my name in a bad state.”
His statements are included in a police report that was today turned over to the city state’s attorney Marilyn Mosby.
It might not sound like a lot on an individual level—an extra year for women, a couple extra years for men—but corresponding author Majid Ezzati from Imperial College in London explained in a phone call that we’re not prepared for estimates of longevity to be out.
The farm, in Kossuth County, was comparatively small, with an estimated 19,000 birds. But it was thought to be the first time in this outbreak that the virus had affected a broiler breeding farm; such farms are said to have better biosecurity systems. And it underscores the potential for the outbreak to have a wide-ranging effect on the country’s poultry supply chain.
The entire reason this is happening is because American growers need to offer China some kind of quid pro quo for allowing more varieties of American apples to be exported to China. Currently, only Red Delicious and Golden Delicious are permitted by China for import. American growers are hoping that loosening our own restrictions will lead China to loosen theirs. It’s yet another move forward in the breakdown of agricultural restrictions between the two countries (the last major one was pork). Maybe soon enough, people in China will be able to enjoy our own homegrown Honeycrisps, Pink Ladys and Brown Russets.
