Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Before I got into investing, my first two nerdy loves were maths and physics. I’m still a big geek today. And yet, despite being a lover of tech and computers, I’m terrified of two modern-day inventions. I see these two must-have assets blowing up into the biggest market bubbles in history. I refer, of course, to Bitcoin (BTC) and Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) stock.Bubble #1: BitcoinAs a mathematician, I studied cryptography (code-breaking) under a world-leading professor. My late grandfather was a linguist and codebreaker at Bletchley Park in WW2 and then for 30 years at GCHQ, Cheltenham. Cryptography has been my lifelong passion. So I should be an avid Bitcoin bro, right? Wrong.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…I understand the science behind Bitcoin, decentralised digital currencies, and blockchains. But I’m a ‘no-coiner’ — someone who has never traded crypto-assets. My biggest worries about Bitcoin are:the energy usage involved in mininghigh transaction costs making Bitcoin unsuited to be a currency for everyday transactionsuse in illegal activitiesrisk of theftextreme volatilityand the fact that Bitcoin is is a massive bubble right now.A week ago, I warned that Bitcoin had entered a massive bubble, driven by speculative buying. Three days into 2021, the price had surged nearly a quarter (23.7%) to hit $34,545. But this gigantic bubble keeps inflating. On Friday, Bitcoin peaked at $41,962, up more than a fifth (21.5%) in another four days. As I write, BTC trades around $31,230, collapsing over $10,700 from its peak. That’s a crash of more than a quarter (25.6%) since Friday.Today, the total value of all Bitcoins is around $579bn. At Friday’s peak, it was $703bn. That’s a loss of $124bn in three days. As with all bubbles, I pity recent buyers, who suffer the greatest losses when bubbles burst. Just as happened in 2018, when BTC crashed by more than five-sixths (84.2%) from its 2017 high. Also, newbies probably don’t realise that 98% of all BTC is controlled by just 2% of wallets. As the old saying goes, ‘Devil take the hindmost’.Bubble #2: Tesla (TSLA)My second market bubble is Tesla stock, much loved by Robinhood day-traders and millennial speculators. Don’t get me wrong: I’ve been for a Tesla test drive. I thought the ride was amazing — pure science fiction. But the build quality was poor (tacky plastic). I even have a grudging admiration for Elon Musk and his global goals, despite his social-media antics. But like Bitcoin, Tesla is one colossal market bubble waiting to burst.Tesla is growing quickly — it made nearly 500,000 cars in 2020. Yet TSLA stock closed on Friday at a record high above $880, valuing the car-maker at $834bn. That made Tesla worth more than all other car-makers combined. Yet these firms together made 99.2% of all vehicles purchased last year (61.4m to Tesla’s 0.5m). This makes Tesla’s current valuation an insane fantasy. For TSLA to justify this price tag, I estimate it would need to sell half (50%) of all cars worldwide by 2030. Thus, Tesla is an even bigger bubble than Bitcoin.When bubbles burstOn Friday, BTC plus TSLA added up to $1,537bn of fantasy, illusion, and delusion. Three days later and the combined total has slumped by $165bn. When these twin bubbles burst for real, I expect recent buyers to lose 50% to 80% of their money. That’s why I’m sticking to buying boring. cheap UK stocks for my tax-free ISA! See all posts by Cliff D’Arcylast_img read more

It has published advice for those who want to support those affected by the disaster in Haiti, whether by fundraising or by making a personal donation.As in previous disasters which have attracted many charitable donations, the Haiti earthquake is being exploited by criminals trying to take advantage of the public’s generosity.The Commission reports that it has been made aware of a number of online scams designed to steal charitable donations. These can take the form of fictitious appeal websites, email appeals that falsely use the name of genuine charities, or appeals from fictitious charities.So far the Commission has only come across online scams relating to the appeal, but offline ones could emerge.The Commission is urging the public to continue giving but to be vigilant. It offers the following advice:* Be careful when responding to emails or clicking links within them to ensure that they are genuine. If you have any concerns about the legitimacy of a request for donations that appears to come from a charity, don’t hesitate to contact that charity directly.* If you are in any doubt about a charity collector, ask for their identification and the charity’s name and registration number. If you are not happy about giving then and there, you can check to see if the charity is on the public register of charities on the Commission’s website – www.charitycommission.gov.uk.* If you are concerned that you may have been targeted by a fundraising scam, you should report this to the police. You should also contact the Charity Commission on 0845 300 0218 or via the website –* If you want to donate online to a particular charity, visit the charity’s website.* Think about how you are going to give. If you are a UK taxpayer and donate directly to a charity online or over the phone it can claim Gift Aid to maximise your donation.The Commission points out that the main appeal for the Haiti crisis is being run by the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC).For members of the public wanting to fundraise for those who have been affected by the Haiti disaster, the Commission has this advice:* Have the necessary permission from your local authority or the Metropolitan Police if you live in a London borough.* Only collect using a sealed tin or container.* Always make sure you state the name and registration number of the charity you are collecting for.* Always make sure there is more than one person to count the collection proceeds and sign off the total amount* Bank any cash as soon as possible, preferably straight into the charity account. Get a receipt from the Bank/Building Society.* Report back to your community so they are reassured that the money has reached the good cause. You may wish to put notices in shops/post offices, or let your local paper know how much you raised and thank people for their support.www.charitycommission.gov.uk AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Charity watchdog warns of Haiti appeal scamslast_img read more

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News April Ending Stocks Come in Lower than Estimates By Andy Eubank – Apr 9, 2014 April 9 Suderman reactionWednesday USDA reported US ending corn stocks at 1.331 billion bushels in its April supply and demand report, a fundamentally supportive report as the carryout number fell below the average trade estimate of 1.403 billion. The government added 125 million bushels to exports.Arlan Suderman, Senior Market Analyst at Water Street Solutions thinks there is justification for the increase in corn exports.“Right now we’re the world’s primary source for corn,” he told HAT, “so traders who normally could get some buyers from the Ukraine are having difficulty doing so now, not because the supply isn’t there, but they’re nervous about writing new contracts with Ukraine and nervous about who they’re going to be doing business with there. So they’re coming to the United States. South American corn is being set aside for the purpose of shipping soybeans right now. Production is down there anyway this year, so the world is coming to our door.”But he doesn’t think the export numbers represent justification for pushing corn prices higher. That would likely happen only if there is a legitimate threat to this year’s corn crop, and as of this date that threat isn’t there.For soybeans there was also bullish news. The USDA ending stocks figure of 135 million bushels also fell short of pre-report estimates averaging 4 million bushels more than that. Soybean demand estimates were raised and Suderman disagreed with the way the agency arrived at the increase.“They raised exports by 50 million. That’s justified. Crush was cut another 5 million and I don’t think that is justified. I think crush needed to go up as well. USDA did raise imports by 30 million and they did cut residual use some, but I think they needed to raise imports more if they’re going to raise demand that much. The cash market has never allowed us to get ending stocks this tight as a percent of annual usage. When you look at this that’s just 4 percent stocks to use ratio. That’s a 14 ½ day supply. The cash market has never allowed soybean stocks to get below a 16 day supply in the last 50 years.”He says USDA needs to take another look at their math and the marketplace needs to recognize “that we’ve got to pay for more imports to come north.”For more inside the numbers read Suderman’s closing comments.

Prosecuted for an online video about an industrial area for which, according to the authorities, he failed to obtain an official permit or the consent of the people he filmed, Makhlouf has been held since 21 October, so 40 days will be deducted from the time he has to serve. He has said he will appeal, but his appeal will not be heard for another month.“We condemn this conviction, which ignored irrefutable evidence of Makhlouf’s innocence,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It is clear from the video that the people in it consented to being filmed and no permit is needed for filming an industrial area. As with the Taoufik Ben Brik, who was sentenced to six months in jail last week, this was clearly a judicial farce. We call for the immediate release of these two journalists.”Around 30 lawyers attended the second hearing in Makhlouf’s trial with the aim of pleading in his defence, but judge Slimane Hammammi only allowed three of them, Nejib Chebbi, Faouzi Ben Mrad and Radhia Nasraoui, to speak. The judge repeatedly interrupted Makhlouf’s lawyers, thereby violating his right to a defence on equal terms as the prosecution.The staff at Monarguia prison, where Makhlouf is being held, prevented one of his lawyers, Saïfeddine Makhlouf, from visiting him on the eve of the hearing, claiming that Makhlouf did not want to see him. His wife was also told he did not want to see her when she tried to visit him on 25 November. On each occasion, Makhlouf was unaware he had visitor. His wife finally managed to see him on 27 November.See the previous press release about Zouhaïer Makhlouf: http://www.rsf.org/Jailed-online-journalist-s-trial.html November 12, 2019 Find out morelast_img read more

The letter calls on the Canadian government, in the wake of a series of egregious press freedom violations in Canada, to make several urgent changes to ensure that press freedom and free expression are properly protected. Forum on Information and Democracy 250 recommendations on how to stop “infodemics” News Dear Prime Minister and Ministers,We, the undersigned, represent individuals and organizations whose lives and work dependupon freedom of the press, freedom of expression, and the protection of sources. We believethat press freedom is being steadily eroded in Canada, and that your government must takeurgent action to prevent further harm.Canada recently dropped ten places in Reporter Without Borders (RSF) World Press FreedomIndex, thanks to what the organization called a “dark age for journalism” under our previousfederal government. Despite the Prime Minister’s strong rhetoric in support of journalism,under your government there have been multiple press freedom violations in Canada. Based oncurrent trends, and without decisive action, the “dark age” looks set to continue.We see this in the spying on Patrick Lagacé and his colleagues by police, the potential jailsentence faced by VICE News reporter Ben Makuch, the possible trespassing charges facingJustin Brake for his coverage of protests at Muskrat Falls, and the seizure of the Journal deMontreal’s Michael Nguyen’s laptop, among other cases. Are there other serious violations ofpress freedom in Canada, more journalists being spied on? Because of the lack of effectiveoversight of our police and surveillance agencies, Canadians simply don’t know.On November 16, Minister Goodale stated in the House of Commons that the government isreassessing safeguards for press freedom and that you are “welcoming any input fromjournalists, lawyers, or others if they have suggestions to make about how the law needs to beimproved.” Prime Minister Trudeau has likewise stated that the government is open todiscussion as to how to improve protections for press freedom in Canada.We are encouraged by your openness on this matter, and to this end wish to highlight severalsimple changes that we urge the government to make to ensure that press freedom and freeexpression are properly protected.1. Pass a press shield lawThe federal government must pass press shield laws that prevent journalists from beingcompelled to reveal confidential sources. This will ensure reporters like Ben Makuchnever again face jail sentences for simply doing their job, and that whistleblowersremain safe from outside retribution. From the UK to Germany to the majority of U.S.states and Australia, almost every western democracy has such laws. Canada must enterthe 21st century and adopt these protections. Senator Claude Carignan has introduced aprivate member’s bill that amends the Canada Evidence Act the Criminal Code toprotect the confidentiality of journalistic sources, and we urge the government to workwith him to see that these protections are implemented.2. Fix the warrant and production order process for journalistsThe recent surveillance of journalists in Montreal and Ottawa reveals that the warrantand production order process in Canada is badly broken, with justices of the peace toooften rubber-stamping warrant and production order requests without weighing thepublic interest or their constitutional consequences. This is easily fixed. We ask federaland provincial governments to require that any warrant or production order forsurveillance of journalists be requested by prosecutors, as opposed to police, andapproved by judges, as opposed to justices of the peace. Journalists should also be giventhe higher level of protection afforded to lawyers, judges, and legislators. This will strikea crucial balance, allowing the press to remain free from unjust surveillance withoutcreating an undue burden on police forces.3. Amend Bill C-13 to remove surveillance powersThe federal government must repeal the dangerous surveillance provisions contained inBill C-13 (the Protecting Canadians from Online Crime Act). This Bill masqueraded aslegislation to combat cyberbullying, but was in fact used to slip controversial lawfulaccess provisions into Canadian law. C-13 greatly lowered the threshold of surveillancewarrants. It allows police to request warrants on the standard of reasonable suspicionthat an offence may be committed, instead of the usual requirement of reasonablegrounds that an offence has been committed and that the search will provide evidenceof it. It also allowed police to spread the net of surveillance, from targeted, time-limitedwiretaps on individuals to permanent, broad-scale digital surveillance of entire groups.The Act must be amended.4. Launch a national inquiry into spying on journalistsThe federal government must launch a full public inquiry at the national level into policeand intelligence agencies spying on journalists. You have stated that you were satisfiedby assurances from the Commissioner of the RCMP and the Director of CSIS that theseagencies were not conducting any surveillance operations targeting journalists. We arepuzzled by your willingness—especially in the wake of a ruling from a Federal Court thatCSIS “breached its duty of candour” in keeping hidden a metadata surveillanceprogram—to accept such declarations at face value. Certainly Canadians have no reasonto do so. Public trust has been broken, and a full public airing of the conduct of policeand intelligence agencies is the only way it can be restored.We request the opportunity to meet with you on an urgent basis to discuss these changes, andfurther steps that the government can take to protect press freedom in Canada. Around theworld, journalists are facing unprecedented threats from authoritarian governments, terroristgroups, and oppressive laws. Canada has the potential to be a global leader in pushing back onthese trends, but we are instead lagging far behind. It is time for action.Thank you for your attention and we look forward to your reply.Yours sincerely, Canadian Journalists for Free Expression Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press Reporters Without BordersUniforCWA-SCA CanadaNewspapers CanadaAssociation for Progressive Communications (APC) Broadbent InstituteAlternativesFédération nationale des communications (FNC-CSN) Fédération professionnelle des journalistes du Québec (FPJQ)Ad IDEM (Advocates In Defence of Expression in Media) Centre for Free ExpressionCanadian Association of JournalistsNational NewsMedia CouncilMay First/People LinkLaborNet Canada ranks 18 out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index, falling 10 places since 2015.
