          RELEASE BLITZ - MALUM PART 1 by AMO JONES      Cache   Translate Page      

Malum Part One (The Elite King's Club book 4), an all new dark romance by Amo Jones is NOW LIVE!

 
 
“Love is savage, love is blind, love is something they may not find…” Once upon a time, there was a young girl who lived in a battered trailer, a girl from the wrong side of the tracks. One day, she fell down The Elite Kings’ rabbit hole. Sucked into a dark vortex of lies, hate, and deceit, and spat out by money, glitz, and power. There were things this little girl didn’t know, things she was about to find out and secrets that have been kept from her. Those secrets were guarded by the boys that were about to smash her world open and tear it all apart… He may be a Malum, but she is a Stuprum, born into this world but neglected by the choice of her mother. Her eyes may not glisten with stars, but they roar with fire, and when she finally reaches her peak, it’s that same fire that will burn. Them. All. Down. My name is Tillie Stuprum, and my story is not like the rest. Everything she thought she knew is a fabricated version of the truth. I’m Nate Riverside-Malum, the one your girl whispers about to her friends and whose initials are scratched down your back. Her story is not like the rest of them, because her story is dead.

Wow! Holy shit! OMG! I am still wrapping my head around this book. 
Malum is a fast moving story filled with twists and turns, heartbreak and tragedy with many players all shifting around in the world of the Kings. It is a perfect combination of intrigue and a complex storyline with a definite dark edge that will definitely keep you on your toes! 
Nate is one of the most complicated characters that I have ever read. He is brutal, harsh is a product of the world he lives in and showing weakness is not acceptable and secrets must be kept. 
Tillie has been kept in the dark about so many things. She is a major player in this complicated world and has power that she doesn’t even know about or understand and at the same time she has been unraveling a mystery that she doesn’t even know existed, but she now may know too much and everything is not what it seemed. 
I am so ready for the next book! Many players have now made their move in the game and I can’t wait to see how this game plays out. 


 
About Amo Jones
Amo Jones is a small country girl totally winging this author thing (she's probably doing it all wrong). She likes cake, loves wine, and her religion is magic. She's a profound work-a-holic, but when she's not writing, you can find her chilling with her kids & partner at the nearest beach, with a cocktail in her hand.
New Zealand is not a state of Australia and rugby is the best sport ever played.

NORMAN — As Matt Freeman stood at midcourt next to his mom and shook Lon Kruger’s hand on Senior Day at Lloyd Noble Center, it appeared his Oklahoma career was wrapping up early.

Freeman will assess his options after this season — whether that’s to remain at OU, play elsewhere as a graduate transfer, or return to his New Zealand home — but the junior’s participation in Senior Day does not signal a sure exit, he told The Oklahoman.

“My mind’s not set on anything,” Freeman said.

Moat Monsters: A Sourcebook for OGL RPGs
Regular price: $1.99
Bundle price:
 $0.54

In most fantasy settings, castles and cities are vital components of civilization, and many of these rely on moats for defense. These large ditches are usually filled with water and meant to stop attackers from reaching the outer walls. Although this tactic was successful in real world history, traditional moats are not as effective in fantasy worlds because of the existence of magic. To counter this and thwart fantasy-world invaders, moats could be filled with different materials and energies, or even populated with monsters.  This sourcebook contains 20 monsters specifically designed to be ideal for occupying moats and enhancing their natural functions, along with ideas on other ways moats can be made more lethal first lines of defense for fortifications. Monsters in it are stat'...

Of all the creatures found guarding hoards of lost treasure, Golems — constructs created by powerful spell casters from specific sorts of materials — are among the most interesting and dangerous. Some might even constitute treasure in and of themselves.  Golems crafted from materials like clay, flesh, stone, iron, amber, bone, bronze, and wood are familiar to the players of OGL-based games, but they represent just a narrow glimpse of the possibilities for such creatures. This mini-sourcebook contains 10 new sorts of Golems, all of them are very different from the basic models and some of them pretty weird, that GMs may find useful in making their campaigns more interesting and unpredictable. They include the Cerebral, Ectoplasm, Flesh-and-Blood, Gas ...

Quantum Flux: Unique Superscience Artifacts

With his second law, that “any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic,” Arthur C. Clarke articulated a concept that could have been a shadowy undercurrent in the wider consciousness for centuries, possibly even millennia. All the items in this book were designed with two ideas in mind: they were created using Ancient technology so advanced that it seems like magic and they’ve gone through Hell since the apocalypse. Damaged, jury-rigged, infested with nanites and parasites, warped by energy, rebuilt by insane machines — these are the kinds of changes that make these artifacts dangerous, unpredictable, and, above all, unique. Quantum Flux contains 86 unique superscience artifacts suitable for use in any modern, sci-fi, or post-apoca...

Spontaneous Generation Monsters

Spontaneous generation, the idea that life can arise from non-living matter, is one of several obsolete biological concepts that can be used in fantasy games to provide a storyteller with more options for monster and setting design. This concept can include living creatures that, by modern definition, are not biological, such as those made of glass or metal. There are at least three forms of spontaneous generation and these are all covered in this mini-sourcebook. Happenstance due to magical laws is the first and the most similar to the historical definition of spontaneous generation. Alchemy is the use of natural laws to create creatures through spontaneous generation by mortals. Divine intervention involves creation of monsters when circumstances fit the requirements dictated by a god...

          REINZ says sales were down at a time when they are normally strong; Auckland had lowest number of sales in a non-January month since 2010      Cache   Translate Page      

The housing market was cold when it's normally hot last month, while Auckland became the city of no-sales, with its lowest number of sales for a non-January month since 2010.

Uncertainty around the Government's plans for a Capital Gains Tax is given as one of the contributing factors.

The Real Estate Institute of New Zealand says across the whole country the number of residential properties sold in February fell by 9.5% from the same time last year to 5,954 (down from 6,576).

The last time sales volumes fell this much on an annual basis was 16 months ago.

In Auckland, the number of properties sold in February fell by 17.9% year-on-year (from 1,654 to 1,358) – the lowest for a non-January month since October 2010.

The median number of days to sell in Auckland was 57, up eight on the same time a year ago and the highest number of days to sell seen in Auckland since February 2009. 

For New Zealand excluding Auckland, the number of properties sold fell by 6.6% when compared to the same time last year (from 4,922 to 4,596). The average days to sell around the country was 47, up from 44 a year ago.

REINZ chief executive Bindi Norwell said that at a time when sales volumes are normally strong, 13 out of 16 regions actually saw an annual fall in the number of properties sold.

"Traditionally children go back to school and people return from their holidays and housing activity picks up, however, February 2019 has been an exception to this rule," she said.

“The lower level of sales volumes compared to the same time last year can be attributed to a number of things – the raft of legislative changes impacting the housing market at the moment, the increasing difficulty in accessing finance (despite a record low OCR and very low mortgage rates from the banks) and vendors’ pricing expectations."

Despite the volume falls, Norwell said median house prices had kept rising, with five regions seeing record median house prices

Median house prices across New Zealand increased by 5.7% in February to $560,000, up from $530,000 in February 2018. Median prices for New Zealand excluding Auckland increased to a record $490,000 up 8.9% from $450,000 in February last year.

Median house prices in Auckland returned to the $850,000 mark – down 0.6% on last year’s figure of $855,000, but up 5.6% on January’s median price of $805,000.

“What we’re hearing from salespeople around the country is that vendors and investors are taking a ‘wait and see’ approach to the housing market – much like you would normally see around election time," Norwell said.

"This is particularly true in relation to the recently announced Capital Gains Tax proposals from the Tax Working Group. Families want to know what aspects of the proposals the Government will look at accept ahead of next year’s election and what impact that will have on them and their family."

Regions with the lowest percentage change in annual sales volumes during February were:

  • Northland: -27.2% (from 232 to 169 – 63 fewer houses)
  • Nelson: -20.0% (from 120 to 96 – 24 fewer houses)
  • Otago: -14.9% (from 422 to 359 – 63 fewer houses) – the lowest for 11 months.

Regions that saw an annual increase in sales volumes during February were:

  • Marlborough: +5.5% (from 91 to 96 – an additional 5 houses)
  • Southland: +2.9% (from 174 to 149 – an additional 5 houses)
  • Hawke’s Bay: +0.4% (from 231 to 232 – an additional house).

There were five regions that saw record median prices achieved in February:

  • Gisborne: +25.8% to $390,000 (up from $310,000 at the same time last year)
  • Manawatu/Wanganui: +23.4 to $352,000 (up from $285,250 at the same time last year)
  • Southland: +20.8% to $290,000 (up from $240,000 at the same time last year)
  • Wellington: +16.2% to $640,000 (up from $551,000 at the same time last year)
  • Hawke’s Bay: +6.4% to $472,500 (up from $444,000 at the same time last year).

Norwell said in February 15 out of 16 regions experienced an annual increase in the median price, with five regions seeing record median house prices highlighting the strength of the housing market around much of the country.

"With house prices continuing to rise at such a pace, this puts even more of a dampener on any notions of New Zealand following in Australia’s footsteps in the short to medium term. Even Auckland saw an increase from January, showing it has returned to the same, stable or flat market we’ve been seeing since April 2017."

Norwell said Auckland’s median price fall was the result of a slight fall in the number of million dollar plus properties sold which fell from 36.9% in February 2018 to 36.1% this February.

"Despite the annual fall in median price, there were some areas of the Super City that saw some growth including Auckland City where prices increased 3.9% to $1,000,000 – the highest price for Auckland City for 20 months. Additionally, Papakura District saw an annual increase of 3.8% to $649,000 and Franklin District saw an annual increase of 2.3% to $670,000. However, Rodney District and North Shore City saw annual median house price falls of 0.8% and 0.2% respectively."

REINZ House Price Index (HPI) increases 3.2% annually

The REINZ House Price Index for New Zealand, which measures the changing value of property in the market, increased 3.2% year-on-year to a new record high of 2,778.

The HPI for New Zealand excluding Auckland increased 8.1% from February 2018 to a new record high of 2,728. The Auckland HPI decreased -2.0% year-on-year to 2,838.

The REINZ HPI saw 8 out of 12 regions experience a record high level over the past 12 months, highlighting the overall continued strength of the property market. The exceptions were Northland, Auckland, Otago and Southland.

In February the Manawatu/Wanganui region again had the highest annual growth rate, a 19.4% increase to a new record high of 2,984, followed by Gisborne/Hawke’s Bay in second place with an annual growth rate of 13.8% to a new record high of 2,762 and in third place was Southland with a 12.6% annual increase to 2,797 – down -1.8% from its peak in January 2019.

Days to Sell continues to hover close to 50

In February the median number of days to sell a property increased by 3 days from 44 to 47 when compared to February last year.

For New Zealand excluding Auckland, the median days to sell increased by 1 day to 43.

However, Auckland saw the median number of days to sell a property increase by 8 days from 49 to 57 – the highest number of days to sell since February 2009.

Manawatu/Wanganui had the lowest days to sell of all regions at 30 days, down 10 days from 40 at the same time last year. The West Coast always has the highest days to sell of any region (at 91 days in February 2019), but the median number of days to sell in Northland has reached a high of 61 days – the highest in since August 2015.

“With vendors holding out to achieve their price expectations, it’s little surprise that the median number of days to sell has slowly been increasing over the last few months. What was interesting though is that this is the first non-January month since February 2017 that no region had median number of days to sell in the 20s,” Norwell said.

February sees auctions returning to normal

Auctions were used in 11.1% of all sales across the country in February, with 663 properties selling under the hammer – this is down slightly from the same time last year, when 11.8% of properties (776) were sold via auction.

Gisborne again had the highest percentage of sales by auction across the country with 56.4% (or 31 properties) in the region sold under the hammer – up from 46.0% (29 properties) in February 2018.

Auckland saw the second largest percentage of sales by auction on 21.5% (292 properties) down from 22.0% in February 2018 (364 properties). Bay of Plenty remained in its usual third place in February with 13.2% (59 properties) sold under the hammer, down from 16.7% (77 properties) in February 2018.

Inventory

The number of properties available for sale nationally decreased by 0.3% from 26,943 to 26,850 – a decrease of 93 properties compared to 12 months ago.

February saw 7 regions with an annual increase in inventory levels. Regions with the largest increases were:

  • Taranaki: +8.3% from 641 to 694 – an additional 53 properties
  • Auckland: +6.7% from 9,588 to 10,234 – an additional 646 properties
  • Hawke’s Bay: +6.7% from 493 to 526 – and additional 33 properties
  • Marlborough: +5.7% from 349 to 369 – an additional 20 properties.

Regions with the biggest falls in inventory were:

  • Gisborne: -32.2% from 143 to 97 – 46 fewer properties
  • West Coast: -26.1% from 595 to 440 – 155 fewer properties
  • Manawatu/Wanganui: -21.9% from 1,093 to 854 – 239 fewer properties
  • Southland: -20.2% from 623 to 497 – 126 fewer properties
  • Otago: -20.0% from 689 to 551 – 138 fewer properties

Wellington once again saw the lowest levels of inventory with only eight weeks of inventory available to prospective purchasers. This was closely followed by Otago and Hawke’s Bay on only nine weeks’ inventory, followed by Gisborne on 10 weeks’ inventory available.

“This is the fourth consecutive month that we have seen an annual decrease in inventory levels. This will continue to be a concern for the industry, and we expect that the ongoing pressure on inventory will result in price increases in these regions, potentially pushing people to more affordable areas in other regions,” Norwell said.

Price Bands

The number of homes sold for less than $500,000 across New Zealand fell from 45.8% of the market (3,012 properties) in February 2018 to 41.5% of the market (2,473 properties) in February 2019.

The number of properties sold in the $500,000 to $750,000 bracket increased from 27.7% in February 2018 (1,821 properties) to 30.7% in February 2019 (1,825 properties).

At the top end of the market, properties sold for $1 million or more decreased from 13.1% in February 2018 (859 houses) to 12.5% in February 2019 (746 houses).

New listings

During February, new listings fell 6.5% when compared to the same time last year – from 11,269 to 10,535. The only regions to experience an uplift in new listings were Central Otago/Lakes (+11.8%). West Coast (+7.6%) and Wellington (+6.9%).

Vanessa Taylor, realestate.co.nz spokesperson says: “February 2019 was very quiet in terms of new listings. Since we began keeping records back in 2007, February has always seen in excess of 12,000 new listings coming to the market, so this has certainly been a stand out month.”

          Members of the troubled Aotearoa Credit Union rubber-stamp takeover by Credit Union Baywide      Cache   Translate Page      

Beleaguered Aotearoa Credit Union (ACU) has received a green light from its members to be taken over by Credit Union Baywide, but revealed it lost more money in its last financial year than previously disclosed.

ACU says member approval by special resolution for a transfer of engagements to Baywide under the Friendly Societies and Credit Unions Act was obtained at a meeting held on Monday, March 11.

"Subject to certain other conditions being satisfied, the Credit Union expects the Transfer of Engagements to be completed by 30 April 2019," ACU says.

ACU is one of four credit unions proposing a transfer of engagements to Baywide. Members of the others - Credit Union South, Credit Union Central and Steelsands Credit Union, plus Baywide members, all also vote on the proposed deal this week. If successful, the five-way merger will see Baywide assume all assets and liabilities of the other credit unions, which will cease to exist.

"The composite transaction is subject to other conditions relating to due diligence, signing of principal documentation, other credit union member approvals, approval of the relevant prudential supervisors and any other approvals that are required. In relation to obtaining member approval, there is a six week period for objections," ACU says.

The five-way merger would create New Zealand's biggest credit union with about $600 million in assets, about 75,000 member-owners and nearly 300 staff.

ACU's serious problems, following a move to a new Oracle core banking system, left it with little choice but to seek a transfer of engagements. Without this takeover ACU is potentially facing receivership with trustee Covenant Trustee Services having declared an event of default and an event of review under ACU’s Trust Deed on 16 October last year and reserved its right to appoint a receiver.

As previously detailed by interest.co.nz, ACU is borrowing up to $1.25 million from its merger partners, has been losing money, is in breach of the minimum capital ratio of 11% under its Trust Deed, and in breach of section 32 of the Non-Bank Deposit Takers Act.

It's also now in breach of a requirement to have its creditworthiness assessed by an approved rating agency, and in breach of the liquidity facility agreement through which it's borrowing money from its merger partners due to delays in having its financial accounts for the September 2018 year audited and filed, and also because it has breached the maximum limit on related party exposures. This is due to loans of about $63,000 to ACU directors. ACU says steps are being taken to remedying this breach and its merger partners are expected to waive breaches of the liquidity facility agreement.

ACU has so far borrowed $125,000 from its merger partners. It now says it lost $2,285,380 in the September 2018 year, subject to any changes required by an audit of its accounts currently underway.

"The loss is higher than the figure of $2,050,000 previously disclosed due to the Credit Union restating its accounts from a going concern basis to a realisation basis following discussions with its auditors," ACU says.

ACU calculates its capital ratio as of December 31 - on a realisation basis - to be 2.5%. Previously this was disclosed as 3.4% calculated on a going concern basis. ACU would need to raise capital of about $2.3 million to comply with the capital ratio.

Between October and January ACU says it lost $284,185. Additionally it expects an operating loss of about $750,000 from January 2019 to the end of April.

ACU expects the audit by its auditor Staples Rodway to be completed by March 31.

          How businesses are affected by Capital Gains Tax will depend on how much it redistributes the tax burden, Greg Ninness says      Cache   Translate Page      

By Greg Ninness

The Government’s expected statement next month on whether it intends to introduce a Capital Gains Tax (CGT), and if it does what form that could take, will probably be the most hotly anticipated announcement of its term.

The Government has a wide variety of options to choose from when formulating its policy, ranging from not introducing a CGT at all, to introducing a partial tax on some assets only, such as investment properties, to a comprehensive CGT which includes assets such as shares.

If a CGT is introduced in some form, one of the most important aspects for businesses to focus on will be the degree to which it redistributes the tax burden and how this affects consumer behaviour.

From the beginning, it was the intention that if a CGT was introduced, the extra tax raised would be offset by tax cuts in other areas.

This was noted in the Tax Working Group’s (TWG) final report to the Government, which stated, “The Government has asked for suggestions for how that money could be used to reduce taxes so that New Zealand’s total tax take doesn’t increase.”

So the intention was that what the Government takes in CGT with the right hand, it gives back with the left, most likely in the form of cuts to income tax.

The TWG’s preferred method of cutting income taxes was to raise the bottom threshold of income tax.

At present, the first $14,000 of a taxpayer’s income is taxed at 10.5%, with income from $14,001 to $48,000 taxed at 17.5%, $48,001 to $70,000 taxed at 30% and income above $70,000 taxed at 33%.

The TWG has proposed increasing the bottom threshold from $14,000 to $22,500, which would mean income up to $22,500 would be taxed at 10.5%.

That would mean anyone earning $22,500 a year or more would be better off by $595 a year.

For a couple where both earned more than $22,500 a year, their household budget would be better off by $1190 a year.

People receiving NZ Superannuation would also benefit from this change.

Although people on high incomes would also receive this benefit, they could be worse off overall, because they are the ones most likely to be hit by CGT when they sell assets such as investment properties or shares.

To the extent that people on higher incomes are the ones most likely to own assets that could be hit by CGT and lower income people are less likely to own them, the overall effect is that people in higher income brackets are more likely to end up paying more tax overall, and those at the other end of the scale will end up paying less.

On top of that, the TWG has recommended that if the Government introduces a CGT, it should also increase payments to beneficiaries.

When looking at the effect all of the above could have on the economy, it could increase retail spending on essential items such as food and clothing, but decrease spending on luxury goods and services.

So retailers such as supermarkets and their suppliers might do slightly better if a CGT is introduced, while purveyors of luxury cars and yachts might not be so happy.

And because lower income people are more likely to spend all of any extra money they receive through higher benefits or lower taxes, the overall effect on the economy could be slightly stimulatory.

So when the Government does announce its intentions in regard to CGT next month, it’s not just individual taxpayers that will be taking a keen interest.

There will be many businesses that will count themselves as winners or losers from CGT, whichever way the Government decides to go.


          Despite rising prices, farmers are feeling oppressed from all sides and confidence is low. Fickle urban voters are driving a flood of rules and imposing costs that make little sense to the business of farming      Cache   Translate Page      
Now sensitive urban types want sensitive protections for destructive pests

The results of the January Federated Farmers farmer survey have recently been published and makes fairly sober reading - especially in the context that prices for most commodities are reasonably sound.

Only 5.1% of respondents expected economic conditions to improve and but nearly 46% expect economic conditions to worsen, this is the worse result since July 2009.

Given the recent rises in milk prices and solid returns coming for sheep and beef farmers this level of pessimism is somewhat surprising and perhaps is a reflection of where farmers heads are at rather than a measure of what the ‘true’ economic conditions are. Apart from taxes, one thing nobody like especially in business, is uncertainty and it is coming by the bucket full in the last few months.

For dairy farmers, the still unresolved issues around the Fonterra balance sheet was probably the start and coincided with the M.Bovis outbreak. The Trump-versus-China impasse and the ongoing saga with Brexit are also contributing and then we get to the domestic situation.

Farming, and in particular dairying have been under continual pressure from what most feel is the general public, although I suspect it is more of a very vocal minority and increasingly the government is ratcheting up the rhetoric regarding the environment footprint of farming. The latest impact is the threaten introduction of a Capital Gains Tax, among others.

In the mean time the usual uncertainties that any business has to contend with are still there and these range from staffing issues to the increasing compliance costs and requirements etc etc, and then we have the spectre of climate change. The survey was done in January and while the GDT auction prices had been on their upward trend, Fonterra hadn’t updated their farmgate forecasts and so dairy farmers, which provided the gloomiest outlook, if they were surveyed again today would probably provide a (slightly) more up-beat response however the underlying mood of farming does have a lot to be concerned about.

The key messages coming out of the survey were; Global uncertainty; A drop in profitability especially in dairy and arable farms; An increase in farm expenses (this came especially from the sheep and beef sector who incidentally were the most positive of the sectors surveyed).

Almost 90% of all farms have debt and most predict it to increase particularly the ‘dairy and other sector’.

Farmers said the highest government priority should be on the economy and business and consistent with all surveys since July 2017 the biggest concern is on compliance and regulation costs. Concerns over the ETS and climate change have levelled out and one area that has decreased is concern over the political situation.

The attitudes of the public psyche is constantly-shifting territory and this was brought home to me in a report out of Gisborne regarding the discovery of 14 leg traps, not the long spring gin traps, on Kaiti hill. There is no confusion that the setting of traps in this area is inappropriate.  Above the old Kaiti freezing works, which is an area now with bars and cafes it is a bush covered hill but very close to residential areas and pets and public alike. The ‘bit’ I found of interest was the terminology used around a possum that was caught in one of the traps, “Biosecurity officers were called to euthanise the injured and distressed animal”. It would have not been long ago that the possum would have been dispatched and barely a mention made of it.

The trend now to apply  somewhat emotive terms to what would have to be one of if not the major introduced pest in New Zealand is interesting and an attitude livestock farmers need to be well aware of with their farming practices.

When ‘sympathetic’ language is being applied to possums then practices like tailing and dehorning cannot be far away from coming under increased public scrutiny. Urban attitudes are fickle and constantly moving ground, but in recent years the speed of change, especially as applied to livestock and agricultural systems is taking some keeping up with.


          A slightly weaker than expected US core CPI release overnight has triggered a fall in the USD and US rates; GBP remains volatile; NZD was again the top performing currency and NZD/AUD is now testing 0.97      Cache   Translate Page      

By Nick Smyth

A slightly weaker than expected US core CPI release overnight has triggered a fall in the USD and US rates.  Risk sentiment remains relatively buoyant however, and US equities have pushed modestly higher.  The GBP remains volatile and has reversed yesterday’s gains after Attorney General Cox said his legal advice on the backstop agreement was unchanged, meaning PM May’s Brexit deal is almost certain to be voted down in parliament later today.  The NZD was again the top performing currency and NZD/AUD is now testing 0.97. 

The USD is slightly lower overnight, with the main driver being slightly weaker than expected US inflation data, both on a headline and core basis.  Core CPI was dragged down by used car prices (-0.7% m/m) and prescription drugs (-1% m/m), leaving the year-on-year rate just above 2%.  Overall, the data is unlikely to shift the Fed’s view that inflation remains “muted” and policy will be on hold for the immediate future. 

The USD indices we monitor are down between 0.15% and 0.25% on the day and have now fully erased the gains made in the aftermath of the dovish ECB meeting last week.  That still leaves the USD indices towards the upper-end of their trading ranges over the past six months.  The US 10 year Treasury yield fell 4bps to 2.60%, helped also by a strong 10 year auction.  The 10 year Treasury yield is now threatening to break out of its recent, narrow trading range.  That said, volatility in rates and FX (with the exception of the GBP) remains low.  

Equity markets have extended their gains from earlier this week, helped by the CPI release and lower US rates.  The S&P500 is up 0.4% (to just below the key 2,800 level) and the NASDAQ 0.6% higher.  The Dow Jones has continued to lag the moves, and it is down 0.4% on the day, with a further 7% fall in Boeing shares, after more countries suspended use of its 737 Max plane, mostly to blame.  On the US-China trade front, US Trade Representative Lighthizer told the Senate that “our hope is that we’re in the final weeks of having an agreement”, although he cautioned that “there still are major, major issues that have to be resolved” and the US needed to retain the threat of tariffs as an enforcement mechanism in any deal.

The GBP has had a very volatile past 24 hours.  The GBP reached a high of 1.3289 yesterday morning after Theresa May announced that she had secured legally binding changes to her Brexit deal with the EU.  But the verdict from UK Attorney General Geoffrey Cox overnight was that there was still a risk, albeit smaller than before, of the UK being bound by the EU’s rules indefinitely.  The DUP announced, on the basis of Cox’s advice, that they would not support the deal and media reported that the Brexit-supporting European Research Group of MPs would vote against it as well.  That sets up an almost certain defeat for Theresa May when she presents her bill to parliament later today, and has seen the GBP reverse most of yesterday’s gains – it currently trades around 1.3070, down more than 2 cents from yesterday’s highs. 

Assuming May’s deal is voted down, parliament is then due to have a vote on Wednesday on whether to leave the EU without a deal and then vote again on Thursday on whether to extend Article 50.  Parliament, which has a majority of Remain-supporting MPs, is highly likely to vote to extend Article 50, in effect delaying Brexit for a yet-to-be-determined period.  That should limit the extent of any further fall in the GBP, although the political situation remains fluid, and PM May will come under heavy pressure to agree to resign if she is defeated on her Brexit deal a third time.  It remains unclear what will break the parliamentary impasse, and we may hear more talk of the possibility of a second referendum. 

In other currencies, the EUR is up 0.4% to 1.1290, supported by a Reuters report that the ECB was looking to design its new LTRO loans in such a way as to limit demand from banks (unlike the earlier rounds of the facility).  The Japanese yen is down slightly amidst the improvement in risk appetite.

Amidst firmer risk sentiment and a broadly weaker USD, the NZD is the top performing currency on the day, up 0.6% to 0.6870.  The NZD/AUD has continued to push higher, and is now testing 0.97 as we write.  A further fall in business conditions in the NAB survey yesterday, to a below-average level of 4pts, has helped support gains in NZD/AUD.  Our NAB colleagues noted that the February NAB Survey (which covers a slightly larger quarterly sample of firms) suggests that conditions in Australia have indeed deteriorated significantly over the past 3-6 months.

There was a marginal move up in local swap rates yesterday, although we will likely see those reverse today after the overnight moves in US Treasuries.  The highlight yesterday was the inaugural syndication from the New Zealand Local Government Funding Agency, which issued $1b in five year bonds, making it the largest new issue by a non-government entity in the NZ bond market to our knowledge.  Pricing on the LGFA bond came at mid-swaps +34bps, towards the tighter-end of initial price guidance, indicative of strong demand.  The broader backdrop is one of constrained net issuance of NZ government securities, which has helped support demand for other high-grade issuers, such as LGFA.

          Weaker US inflation; US-China trade outcome in doubt; EU digital tax shelved; Aussie credit demand drops; UST 10yr 2.60%; oil and gold up; NZ$1 = 68.7 USc; TWI-5 = 73.4      Cache   Translate Page      

Here's our summary of key events overnight that affect New Zealand, with news US inflation has come in lower than estimates suggested.

Wall Street is up (+0.5%) on the back of low inflation figures which suggest the Fed will be dovish about future interest rate hikes. Overnight the EU markets were flat and they followed Asian markets which were up by more than +1% yesterday.

The US CPI rose 1.5% in the 12 months to February, the smallest gain since September 2016, largely driven by lower petrol prices. This is a major miss as markets were expected a rise of 2.2%.

Meanwhile the US-China trade talks are getting more uncertain with US saying they want to be able to retain the right to impose punitive tarriffs and a deal is not certain.

The US-China rivalry has also taken a new turn with the American's challenging the use of Huawei gear in undersea cable networks.

While the number of people leaving Hong Kong looks set to rise as China tightens its grip, with more than half of the people under 30 saying they are thinking about leaving the territory.

In Europe at a meeting of EU ministers they have shelved plans to introduce a digital tax on global giants like Google and Facebook, but they have said they may try again in 2020.

And staying in Europe, Volkswagen has announced plans to cut jobs as it speeds up the production of less labour-intensive electric cars. The German car maker says it will also review the different brands it owns including Audi, Skoda and Porsche.

While in the UK Teresa May's Brexit dramas continue - yesterday she thought she had a new deal with the EU, but today even her own Attorney General is refusing to back it.

In Australia, more evidence of a lending slowdown. Lending commitments to households for owner-occupied buying and alteration projects are down -3.3% in the year to January. But much worse, this data is down more than -15% for January 2019 alone compared with the same month in 2018, indicating the falloff is growing.

The Australian federal government has ditched a key recommendation from the banking royal commission to scrap trail commissions for new loans arranged by mortgage brokers after pressure from the industry and smaller lenders.

The UST 10yr yield is softer today by -4 bps and is now at 2.60%. Their 2-10 curve remains at +16 bps while their negative 1-5 curve is at -10 bps. The Aussie Govt 10yr is down -1 bp to 2.01%, the China Govt 10yr is also down by -1 bp to 3.16%, while the NZ Govt 10 yr is up +1 bp to 2.12%.

Gold is firmer, up to US$1,297 and a +US$5 rise since this time yesterday.

US oil prices are now just under US$57/bbl while the Brent benchmark is just over US$66.50/bbl. That's a small rise overnight.

The Kiwi dollar is at 68.7 USc and almost +½c firmer. On the cross rates we have firmed against the Aussie and now at 96.9 AUc and a new two and a half year high. Against the euro we are holding at 60.8 euro cents. That puts the TWI-5 at 73.4.

Bitcoin is little-changed at US$3,862. This rate is charted in the exchange rate set below.

          FXBTG Financial chases its dream 'indomitably' from NZ's Financial Service Providers' Register as at least 3 overseas regulators issue warnings      Cache   Translate Page

By Gareth Vaughan

A company registered in New Zealand to provide financial adviser services, broking and custodial services and trade foreign exchange on behalf of others with a Cayman Islands parent company operating from a residential address in Auckland's Mt Roskill.

That may all sound a bit unusual. But in reality it's just another entity registered on New Zealand's problematic Financial Service Providers' Register (FSPR). 

This one's called FXBTG Financial Ltd, whose website says; "We chase our dream indomitably."

Registered as a New Zealand company as well as being registered on the FSPR, FXBTG Financial was brought to interest.co.nz's attention last week by a reader.

The reader had previously contacted the Financial Markets Authority (FMA) to draw the regulator's attention to FXBTG Financial, suggesting its website - plus clone websites in Hong Kong and China - in Chinese - are "full of false and misleading information." 

A response from the FMA to the reader said; "We have now assessed the information provided and advise that in this case we will not be taking any further action at this point. However, we will use the information you have provided as part of our on-going monitoring of the financial services sector."

The FMA has powers to direct the Registrar of the FSPR at the Companies Office to deregister and/or prevent businesses and individuals from registering on the FSPR. The FMA can do this if it believes a company is creating a false or misleading impression to investors that the business provides financial services in NZ and is regulated under NZ law. The law also provides for deregistration if registration has, will have, or is likely to have the effect of damaging the integrity or reputation of NZ’s financial markets or NZ’s law or regulatory arrangements.

At least 3 warnings from overseas regulators

Interest.co.nz has found three warnings from overseas regulators about FXBTG Financial. It has featured on the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission's (SFC) "alert" list since November 2017. The alert list features entities that have come to the attention of the SFC because they are unlicensed in Hong Kong and are believed to be, or to have been, targeting Hong Kong investors or claim to have an association with Hong Kong.

 In October last year the Central Bank of Ireland issued a press release about FXBTG Financial, describing it as an unauthorised investment firm that's "not authorised by the Central Bank as an investment firm, investment business firm, or to provide investment advice."

"It is a criminal offence for an unauthorised firm/person to provide financial services in Ireland that would require an authorisation under the relevant legislation which the Central Bank is the responsible body for enforcing. Consumers should be aware, that if they deal with a firm/person who is not authorised, they are not eligible for compensation from the Investor Compensation Scheme," the Central Bank of Ireland said.

Additionally Denmark's Financial Supervisory Authority has FXBTG Financial on a list of warnings issued by financial supervisory authorities in European Union countries.

Companies Office records list Garci Capital of the Cayman Islands as FXBTG Financial's shareholder. It's director is listed as Li Xiaomin, who property records also list as the owner of FXBTG Financial's registered office and address for service. This is 10 McGregor Street, Mt Roskill (pictured above, right), over which property records also show ASB holds a mortgage.

'A New Zealand government accredited financial services provider'

Interest.co.nz called FXBTG Financial's phone number three times on Friday. Each time the phone rang and rang until eventually going dead. The same thing happened when we called on Monday morning. However, a fifth call on Monday afternoon was answered. The man who answered, speaking limited English, said the manager, "Alice," was out and he did not work for FXBTG Financial. He took a message and said he'd have the manager call. She is yet to do so.

One FXBTG Financial Chinese language website here notes, in an English translation, that FXBTG Financial is "a New Zealand government accredited financial services provider." As trading products it lists foreign exchange, precious metals, crude oil, shares, and digital currency. It also carries a warning that contracts for difference, or CFDs, are high risk products.

A Google search for Garci Capital only brought up the confusing blurb below.

FMA 'engaging with' FXBTG Financial's director

FSPR records show FXBTG Financial first registered on November 11, 2013 and reregistered on November 21, 2018. So what happened?

A Companies Office spokeswoman told interest.co.nz that, after visits to FXBTG Financial's business address and subsequent correspondence, Registrar of Financial Service Providers Ross van der Schyff was satisfied FXBTG Financial was not in the business of providing financial services and thus should be deregistered.

"During the objection period, an objection to the deregistration was lodged, however, sufficient evidence was not provided during the objection period to show that FXBTG was in the business of providing financial services. The Registrar remained satisfied that deregistration was appropriate and the financial service provider was deregistered under section 18(1)(b) of the Financial Service Providers (Registration and Dispute Resolution) Act 2008 on 19 October 2018," the Companies Office spokeswoman said.

"FXBTG commenced proceedings to appeal the deregistration initiated by the Registrar. Information provided with the appeal documents were sufficient to show that the financial service provider was in the business of providing financial services at the time it was deregistered. The Registrar therefore reregistered FXBTG on the grounds that the Registrar was satisfied that FXBTG was still in the business of providing a financial service at the time of deregistration (Section 22 of the Act). FXBTG was reregistered on the FSPR on 21 November 2018. As a result of the reregistration, FXBTG ceased proceedings."

The Companies Office is under the Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment (MBIE) umbrella.

An FMA spokesman said the FMA has received complaints about FXBTG Financial.

"At the time those complaints were received, MBIE were going through the process of de-registering FXBTG from the FSPR. With FXBTG being re-registered, the FMA is currently engaging with the director of FXBTG," the FMA spokesman said.

Problems with the FSPR

The FSPR is like a phone directory for the financial services sector. A company being registered on it doesn't mean it's actually regulated or licensed in NZ.

Anyone providing a financial service such as insurers, banks, fund managers and financial advisers, must be registered on the FSPR, which is operated by MBIE's Companies Office. The FSPR records the name, address and financial dispute resolution service membership of the provider, along with the services it's registered to provide and any licences it may have.

Trouble is the FSPR is open to exploitation by overseas based people with nefarious intentions. That’s because a company can register on the FSPR if it has a place of business in NZ, regardless of where in the world its financial services are targeted or provided. This means entities can, and have, set up superficial operations in NZ through virtual offices, or by leasing an office and perhaps employing a person to provide back-office services.

These firms typically register to provide financial services that don't require licensing in NZ, such as foreign exchange, or forex, services. There's no pre-vetting by a NZ regulator, and they usually don't tend to offer financial services within NZ. These entities can, however, use their NZ registration overseas to give a false impression that they are actually regulated in NZ and trade off this country's good name.

In 2017 the FMA told interest.co.nz it had received enquiries about NZ financial service providers from 83 countries, with 340 misconduct reports received from overseas about companies registered on the FSPR. The FMA now publishes online resources about the FSPR in Chinese, Malay and Arabic as these languages reflect the regions of the world representing the biggest number of complaints received from overseas by the FMA.

The Government is planning reforms to the FSPR through the Financial Services Legislation Amendment Bill currently working its way through Parliament. 

“Some mainly offshore-controlled entities have been 'free-riding' off New Zealand’s reputation for sound financial markets regulation by using their registration to imply that they are actively regulated in New Zealand when that is not the case," Commerce and Consumer Affairs Minister Kris Faafoi said when the Government issued a consultation paper in April last year. (My dissection of the Government's plan is here).

          RBNZ bank capital proposals appear quite sensible given the unique New Zealand banking market structure, Deutsche Bank analysts say       Cache   Translate Page      

By Gareth Vaughan

The Reserve Bank (RBNZ) proposals to significantly increase bank capital requirements are sensible given New Zealand's unique market structure, say banking analysts from Deutsche Bank.

In a report on the RBNZ proposals Deutsche's Australian-based analysts Matthew Wilson and Anthony Hoo note the NZ banking system is highly concentrated with four foreign (Australian) owned banks controlling 88% of system assets.

"This unique market structure, we are yet to find another one, generates oligopoly-like returns. The four banks print an average return on equity of 15% and remit 65%, or NZ$3.25 billion, of earnings bank to the parents as dividends," Wilson and Hoo say.

They go on to say each time the big Australasian banks - ANZ, ASB's parent Commonwealth Bank of Australia, BNZ's parent National Australia Bank and Westpac - confront an external threat to the industry structure they use alarm as a point of negotiation.

"E.g. may cause funding problems, may lead to credit rationing and may de-stabilise the economy. We heard this in the lead-up to the Murray Inquiry, in response to its key final 'unquestionably strong' [capital] recommendation and in the lead-up to, and during, the more recent Hayne Royal Commission. The same tactic is being used in response to the RBNZ call," say Wilson and Hoo.

They estimate the RBNZ proposals would cut the big banks' return on equity by about 300 basis points. To hold return on equity steady Wilson and Hoo suggest the banks would need to increase their margins by 50 basis points, but note "you can only charge what a market is willing to bear."

Thus in response the Deutsche analysts suggest the big four banking groups will transfer what excess common equity tier one capital they have in Australia to NZ. Additionally they will "more sharply manage" the shape and size of their NZ balance sheets, consider a partial NZ share market listing of the NZ subsidiaries, and cut their "unsustainably high" dividend payout ratios.

"Whilst a partial listing would likely be welcomed by NZ investors and the broader NZ economy, it creates some capital/tax inefficiencies for the parent and thus may not be the most preferred outcome," Wilson and Hoo say.

The Deutsche analysts also note changes by the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) to its related parties framework, prudential standard APS222. This restricts exposures between the big Aussie banks and their related entities. Currently the standard sets the restriction at an aggregate exposure limit into each subsidiary, whether debt or equity, of 50% of the Australian parent's level 1 tier 1 capital. However, in July last year APRA released a discussion paper proposing to lower the requirement to 25% of the Aussie parent's level 1 tier 1 capital.

Wilson and Hoo point out this increases the sensitivity of related-party investments.

"We expect the major banks to actively consult with APRA on this proposal...at level 1, the New Zealand major banks are deconsolidated and the capital investments into these subsidiaries risk weighted at 400%. This is particularly relevant when dividends are upstreamed and then reinjected as equity capital in the subsidiary."

By Wilson and Hoo's estimate the increased capital requirements would reduce the big four NZ banks' valuations by just 1% (see table below). Given the entire value of share market listed NZ equities is NZ$130 billion, the Deutsche analysts suggest only a partial listing of the big four banks would be digestible. A partial NZ listing of certain banks might be  a "sensible and well received outcome," they say, adding weight and certainty to the NZ equity market plus creating a vested interest in a bank's customer base.

NZ banks must currently meet a minimum total capital ratio of 10.5% of their risk weighted assets. The RBNZ is proposing to increase this to 18% for banks identified as ‘systemically important’, ANZ, ASB, BNZ and Westpac, and 17% for all other banks. Within this proposed increase from 10.5% to 18%, it's proposing to increase the minimum capital requirement for tier 1 capital from 8.5% to 16% for systemically important banks and 15% for all other banks. The RBNZ additionally has a minimum capital requirement of 2% for tier 2 capital. However, the RBNZ is questioning whether this lower quality Tier 2 capital is needed.

          IRD wins 'tax avoidance' case against Eric Watson's Cullen Group over $52 million tax debt      Cache   Translate Page      

Below is a press release issued by the Inland Revenue Department on Tuesday afternoon. The judgment is here. It dismisses Cullen Group’s challenge to the IRD’s assessment of Cullen Group as liable for about $51.5 million of tax, plus use of money interest and penalties.

Inland Revenue has won a High Court case against Eric Watson’s Cullen Group over a nearly $52 million tax debt.

After a nine-day trial in Auckland in August and September last year,  Justice Palmer delivered a written decision today dismissing the Cullen Group’s challenge to the $51,496,127.38 tax assessment.

IRD Legal Services Leader Karen Whitiskie says Justice Palmer’s decision today is the culmination of a lot of hard work by many people.

"The outcome of the High Court process is the result of hard work and dedication by the Inland Revenue team, Crown Law and Counsel. This was a long running issue and shows the dedication of our people in unravelling what went on.

Eric Watson moved from New Zealand to the United Kingdom in 2002 and restructured his business affairs so his shares in Cullen Investments Ltd (CIL) were replaced by loans owed by Cullen Group Ltd (Cullen Group) to companies in the Cayman Islands.

“Mr Watson retained a high degree of control over the relevant entities and was on both sides of the loans. The Court found it was a tax avoidance arrangement and void against the Commissioner,” Karen Whitiskie says. 

“Cullen Group was paying tax at a lower rate than it should have been. It paid Approved Issuer Levy (AIL) at two percent when it should have paid Non-Resident Withholding Tax (NRWT) at 15 per cent.”

Justice Palmer dismissed the challenge and ruled Cullen Group is liable for the $51.5m of tax, plus use of money interest.

The parties will now carefully consider the judgment and have until Tuesday, 9 April 2019 to file an appeal.


          Higher freight costs take the shine of export log prices. Domestic supply is abundant, China demand stable, India prices under pressure      Cache   Translate Page      

At Wharf Gate (AWG) prices for logs delivered to ports around New Zealand decreased on average -NZ$5 per JASm3 in March from the highest February prices. This decrease in AWG prices is due to increased ocean freight costs for export log cargo.

Most CFR log prices in China were flat to a modest increase of +US$1 per JASm3. ‘A’ grade export now sells for up to US$143 per JASmin China and US$155 per JASmin India.

The domestic market for logs has continued the very stable start to 2019. There has been some capacity taken out of the pruned market with the closure of the Waverley sawmill, but other mills producing clear sawn timber are already at capacity.

Due to the drop in the AWG sale prices for export sawlogs the PF Olsen Log Price Index decreased -$3 in March to $134. The index is currently $6 above the two-year average, $9 above the three-year average, and $17 higher than the five-year average.

Domestic Log Market

Log Supply and Pricing

Prices for domestic log sales in March are mostly unchanged from February as most supply is locked in for the quarter. The settled weather around the country has caused log supply to increase with some mills and in particular those buying pruned logs, reporting an abundance of log supply.

Sawn Timber Domestic Demand

Most mills continue to report that 2019 sales levels are above 2018 levels. The continued fine settled weather in New Zealand is the likely cause of this solid demand. There was also a reduction in demand in 2018 as business was unsettled after the outcome of the New Zealand general election. But as usually happens, business realises there isn’t actually much change and gets on with their activities.

Sawn Timber Export Demand

The Australian market remains slow with reduced housing starts, and the Asian demand is increasing after the aforementioned Chinese holiday.  

The European clearwood market remains strong with some New Zealand supply about to be reduced after the closure of the Waverley sawmill.

The stable markets led to a less interesting market report, but the stability is good for the New Zealand forest industry.  

Export Log Markets

China

Total softwood log stocks increased across China during the Lunar New Year holiday period to just over 4.1 million m3. Daily uplift from the ports has steadily increased since this holiday period with current estimates between 60-70,000 mper day. The rate of offtake over the next month will likely determine the market direction for the next three to six months. Over 2018 the total softwood log market remained balanced with the number of days inventory supply in the 40-50 range. Log exporters expect a similar balanced position to be sustained through 2019.

The China log market is currently sitting at a sensitive point. Based on current CFR log prices and the China retail prices the log buyers cannot make a profit from New Zealand radiata logs. This does make Chinese log buyers quite discerning in log quality to ensure they are getting the quality of the grade they purchase.

It is unlikely alternative supply can increase dramatically in the short term, so the New Zealand log exporters expect further modest CFR price increases over the short term. Any pressure from competition will likely come initially in the lower grades as this volume can easily be replaced in construction markets with Uruguayan or other lower-cost logs.

While the US has delayed indefinitely an increase in tariffs on China goods, there is still a lot of negotiation to occur before a deal is concluded and tariffs lifted by either side. Once a deal is agreed, it is expected an easing of tariffs will be stepped rather than a complete removal. This means the sentiment about log supply from the US hasn’t changed.

Due to favourable pricing relative to New Zealand logs, Southern Yellow Pine (SYP) volumes have recovered overall slightly since Q4 2018. The current volume is approximately 50,000 JAS m3 per month which is still less than half of the Q1 2018 monthly volume. There was a recent reduction in supply due to snowstorm events. The current returns are supressed due to trade tariffs, but log volumes close to port and low-cost freight due to an imbalance in the container trade are keeping this business viable. Should the New Zealand radiata price hold, or slightly increase, the SYP price may improve slightly, underwriting some volume growth.

Log Supply to China from Uruguay was adversely affected in 2018 by increases in ocean freight costs. Uruguay is now able to provide some positive market return for forest owners as the freight market dropped around 10 USD per JAS mfor Q1 2019. Due to the increasing price for NZ radiata, logs from Uruguay can now sell for a slightly higher CFR price, improving the viability of exports and increasing available volume. South American exporters now have a much-improved understanding and management of quality control after earlier significant issues. They have also improved stowage for ship loading. South America led by Uruguay, currently export about seven vessels per month with the potential to increase more if New Zealand radiata logs maintain the current price level. Brazil is also starting to export in bulk with several vessels shipped in 2018 and a regular program expected in 2019. It will be interesting to see how these markets cope with expected ocean freight increases.

India

Movement of log stocks off Kandla Port has increased and the older stock has now been sold. The CFR price for New Zealand ‘A’ grade pine logs are in the US$155 per JASm3 range and forecast to increase marginally.

The lumber prices remain around Rs491 per CFT but the strengthening of Indian Rupee to 70-71 range with the USD has provided some bottom-line respite to sawmillers.

There is currently a strong demand for the cheaper 3m short length logs to reduce the average basket price.

The much-welcomed decision of the Indian government to reduce the GST to 2% on finished apartments and houses is likely to give a boost to the construction sector. Log sellers expect the effect on demand to occur shortly after the general elections in May 2019. Over this election period the market for NZ pine logs will not be significantly affected, however, the hardwood log trade is expected to slow down.

The recent removal of several Indian banks (Corporation Bank, Dena Bank, Allahabad) from the regulator watch list, the Prompt Corrective Action (PCA), should marginally improve funding and LC issues for sawmillers and log importers.

There is a market move by the Kandla Timber Association (Pine Cell) to make a concerted effort to increase the NZ pine sawn timber to Rs501 per CFT.

New Zealand pine continues to face competition from the following global trade aggressively targeting the Indian market.

  • Southern Yellow Pine CFR 120 USD for 10” (25cm) small end diameter (SED) and above. (NZ A grade logs have a 30cm SED).

  • South Africa Pine CFR 125 USD per metric tonne for pruned logs with a 30cm SED.

  • Kiln dried (KD) pine sawn timber from the Ukraine and Eastern Europe at 220 USD per m3.

  • There have been some arrivals of taeda and ellioti pine sawn timber from Brazil recently.

Due to the Kandla prices remaining low (around Rs491 per CFT) they are able to sufficiently service the Bangalore and Hyderabad markets (Rs 511/- per CFT) covering the cartage costs. Sawmills importing logs via Tuticorin Port have reduced production by approximately 30% while they wait for prices to increase. The demand for New Zealand logs and vessel shipments from New Zealand to Tuticorin are likely to remain subdued for the next few months.

Exchange rates

Over the last month the NZD has continued to trade within the 0.672 and 0.690 range against the USD. This means there has been little effect on AWG prices offered by log exporters.

NZD:USD

The Chinese Yuan (CNY) appreciated slightly against the USD through February.

CNY:USD

Ocean Freight

Exporters have different freights costs relative to last month as there were some cheaper spot vessels available last month. Freight costs seem to have bottomed out and there has been steady increases over the last month. Freight demand is expected to increase with the usual increased activity after the Chinese Lunar New Year which will increase vessel daily charge rates.

Ocean Freight from NZ to Kandla is in range of 34 to 37 USD per JASm3.

Vessel congestion at the North Island load ports remains an issue particularly in Gisborne and Tauranga, where there is regularly two to three vessels parked at anchorage waiting for a berth. This congestion is due to a number of factors – increased log volumes requiring more vessels, port labour shortages, and in Tauranga fumigating logs for vessels can at times tie up a berth.

The Baltic Dry Index (BDI) is a composite of three sub-indices, each covering a different carrier size: Capesize (40%), Panamax (30%), and Supramax (30%). It displays an index of the daily USD hire rates across 20 ocean shipping routes. Whilst most of the NZ log trade is shipped in handy size vessels, this segment is strongly influenced by the BDI.

          Commerce and Consumer Affairs Minister Kris Faafoi tells insurers to communicate price and policy changes more clearly, but won't force them to ensure insurance remains accessible       Cache   Translate Page      

The Government is warning general insurers not to spring price and policy changes on their customers.

The message from Commerce and Consumer Affairs Minister Kris Faafoi follows the country’s largest general insurer, IAG, on March 4 adopting a new approach to pull back from writing new contents insurance policies in Wellington.

IAG’s move signifies another step towards it reducing its exposure to Wellington. In July last year it announced it was following Tower in using a risk-based pricing model, which would see it more aggressively hike premiums for homeowners in flood and earthquake-prone parts of the country.

Speaking to interest.co.nz, Faafoi said the issue of accessibility to insurance cover wasn’t bad enough for him to justify stepping in.

“We’re a long way away from intervention, but we’re obviously watching it very carefully, because risks [around climate change and more severe weather events] are increasing,” he said.

“Insurance cover for kiwis is extremely important to the government.”

Asked if he was concerned that taking a more heavy-handed approach would spark a backlash from reinsurers, possibly prompting them to exit the New Zealand market, Faafoi said: “It’s a delicate market.

“We’re going to be very careful about what we’re saying, which is why I think the insurance sector needs to take a lot more responsibility.”

Faafoi said he hadn’t seen signs of the general insurance market being uncompetitive, despite IAG and Vero (which part-owns AA Insurance) accounting for about 70% of the market.

Nonetheless, he said: “When you do get a decision like this around coverage, you watch things pretty closely.”

IAG's change of approach towards contents insurance will affect all its brands, including AMI, State, NZI, Lumley and Lantern Insurance, as well as the products it underwrites for the likes of ASB, Westpac, BNZ and The Co-operative Bank.

It's also significant because as of July, the government-run Earthquake Commission will no longer provide up to $20,000 of cover for contents damaged in a natural disaster. 

'You can’t just go from zero to a hundred'

Faafoi said following the Canterbury and Kaikoura earthquakes it was well-known that insurers were applying risk-based pricing models to home insurance. Yet IAG’s move was the first he’d seen of contents cover being affected too.

“From my perspective, they [insurers] need to do a much better job of informing their customers as to why this is happening,” he said.

“They also have to be mindful of what price increases, what coverage changes, mean to the average consumer.

“Because you can’t just go from zero to a hundred in a short amount of seconds without someone being shocked.”

IAG has been vague about its new approach towards contents cover in Wellington.

It said on Monday it was continually reviewing its approach to risk in Wellington, and was giving "priority to existing customers with regard to contents insurance”.

The company said it was still writing new contents business in Wellington, but wouldn’t specify whether this meant it would insure say 5% or 80% of people who applied for cover.

IAG also refused interest.co.nz’s interview requests.

It isn’t the only company that's been cagey about changes to its risk appetite.

Tower last year misrepresented the changes it made to its pricing, to the point its CEO during a Radio NZ interview wrongly lead the public to believe that 97% of Tower customers would receive home insurance premium decreases.

While changes at Tower and presumably IAG largely relate to earthquake risk, Faafoi said the Government was working with insurers to figure out how to protect communities at risk of climate change-induced flooding.

Climate Change Minister James Shaw last month told interest.co.nz insurers were “acting very responsibly”.

He assured insurers and banks wouldn't end up being the ones to essentially decide who would pay for climate change.

NZD/USD

The New Zealand Dollar (NZD) received a boost Friday after broad based declines in the US Dollar (USD) took the kiwi off the low of 0.6744 to close at 0.6800. This week the theme has continued with a mix of “risk on” sentiment based on Brexit positiveness before tomorrow’s vote and big dollar sellers. Fed chairman Powell said the Fed was in no hurry to change interest rates again and will watch how the slowing economy progresses. Brexit headlines will hold market focus over the remaining week, we suspect sentiment will change tomorrow and take the kiwi back below 0.6800.

NZD/AUD (AUD/NZD)

The New Zealand Dollar (NZD) continues to improve on the Australian Dollar (AUD) picking up 54 points last week to 0.9660 (1.0350) where it currently trades Tuesday lunch. Last week’s poor Aussie data continues to weigh on the currency in a week with no economic data printing. Financial markets are locked in a “risk on” mood as hopes of a Brexit deal improve heading into tonight’s parliamentary vote. The kiwi benefiting as investors start thinking about parity parties all over again. We can’t see the cross going below 0.9600 (1.0420) this week.

The British Pound (GBP) recovered off last week low of 0.5230 (1.9115) to push back to 0.5155 (1.9400) against the New Zealand Dollar (NZD). A last minute pre 12 March parliament vote is on the cards as Theresa May tries one more time. May is on route to meet European Commission President Juncker in Strasbourg. Analysts are suggesting negotiations have reached a point where there might be an agreement. Certainly with the Pound spiking overnight the sentiment barometer is high. UK m/m GDP prints tonight along with Manufacturing Production. News just in: PM May has supposedly secured legally binding changes to her Brexit deal that will strengthen and possibly improve her withdrawal agreement.

The New Zealand Dollar (NZD) continued last week rally against the Canadian Dollar (CAD) extending to 0.9155 as risk improved. Equity markets are up on the day as well as Crude Oil to 56.86 but the NZD was preferred. The Bank of Canada downgraded earlier predictions that cash rates would track higher suggesting further uncertainty. Recent Canadian economic data releases have been poor. We expect price to track higher towards 0.9250 the 12 month high.

Optimism towards a Brexit deal being done has lifted risk sentiment in the markets with the Euro (EUR), New Zealand Dollar (NZD) cross continuing last week’s push from the open to 0.6080 (1.6450). Risk currencies have benefited, US equities have closed over 1% higher and the US Dollar was sold off further from Friday’s NFP figure. Also assisting the kiwi is the ECB’s downgraded inflation and growth forecast which could really bite. Long term we are heading towards resistance around 0.6130 (1.6320) of December 2018, any upside moves through this area and we are well into multi year highs. This pair has no scheduled data this week to release, direction will be guided by risk sentiment.

Monday saw the New Zealand Dollar (NZD) recover off last week low of 75.00 to regain losses against the Japanese Yen (JPY) back to 76.00 Tuesday. This week’s focus is the Bank of Japan (BoJ) interest rate statement. Comments around ramping up stimulus will be key in relation to achieving their 2.0% inflation target, Kuroda could signal more easing due to lower inflation and growth forecasts.

Risk markets continued into Monday with US equities posting gains of over 1.0% as the cross got through to 0.7080 Tuesday. The hangover from last week’s abysmal Non-Farm Payroll figure also continues to pressure the greenback along with Powell making comment that the Fed would try to influence the US Dollar lower through trade policy.

The Australian Dollar (AUD) improved to 0.6285 (1.5910) against the Euro (EUR) from the open of 0.6265 (1.5950) extending last week’s gains and looks to 0.6320 (1.5820) early February resistance levels.

Australia

The RBA left rates unchanged at 1.50% with governor Lowe suggesting rates are consistent with GDP growth and inflation forecasts. Inflation remains low but stable and should pick up over the coming years. With all aspects of the economy showing weakening data the RBA seem to be upbeat that wage growth and low unemployment should improve in the coming months. Quarterly GDP released lower than expectations adding fuel to the depreciating AUD with Retail Sales also printing down at 0.1%. Trade Balance has surprised markets when figures showed an increase of nearly 2B to 4.55B after 2.85B was forecast. The only reason the Aussie has bounced off 0.7000 against the greenback is the buoyant Trade figure. Analysts are predicting a pick up in the Aussie towards the end of April based on seasonal import/export figures and solid iron ore values, I’m not so sure? It’s a quiet week on the calendar this week with only RBA assistant governor Debelle speaking today.

New Zealand

The New Zealand Dollar followed the Australian Dollar lower in the early stages of last week bottoming out against the US Dollar at 0.6744 before things changed. US (NFP) Non-Farm Payroll jobs data showed only a further 20,000 people were added to the workforce - the figure significantly down on the expected 180,000 number. Unemployment came in better than expected at 3.8% from 3.9% but the US Dollar traded softer allowing the kiwi to regain early week losses. Global Auction Milk prices have again posted another positive result of 3.3%, this is the seventh increase in prices since November 20th with farmgate prices set to improve over time. Another quiets week for data for the local currency suggesting outside influences will impact for the second week running.

United States

Larry Kudlow has made the suggestion that the ongoing Trump/China trade talks are making "headway" as mixed reports suggested the two parties were miles away from agreeing on a deal. China has suggested a compromise to the US Govt that would allow them to impose an enforcement provision if conditions were not met. Currently the US, based on the current deal conditions, have all the rights to charge China reimposed tariffs if they failed to meet with structural changes to its economy. China have highlighted this as unfair and wish to even the playing field with their own set of what if's penalties as they seek an equal rights trade deal. Erin Ennis senior vice president of the US/China business council has said "we could definitely see ourselves in yet another period of uncertainty" the longer differences continue. Trump is to set to demand another 8.6 Billion in wall funding to build additional sections of the wall along the Mexico/US border in a new set of new battles with congress. The US Dollar retreated late Friday after Non-Farm Payroll (NFP) printed down on expectations of 180,000 at 20,000 as markets sold the Dollar. US unemployment is still low coming in down at 3.8% from 3.9% as well as Average hourly earnings also printing positive at 0.4% from 0.3%. Equity markets closed lower but the kiwi and Aussie pushed up slightly off recent lows as news broke.

Europe

The ECB left the overnight rate unchanged and will look at stimulating the economy’s growth through 2019-2020 with a product called (TLTROs) Targeted Longer-Term Refinancing Operations as a potential method to inject liquidity to boost growth. The ECB cut its inflation and growth forecast and delayed any shift to rate hikes by at least three months with the current rate on hold until at least the end of this year. They have also introduced a bunch of cheapish long term loans (TLTRO) in the hope of loosening liquidity conditions later in 2019. Draghi said that the likelihood of a recession was low and the Eurozone growth outlook was still swayed to the downside. It’s a quiet week for tier one data with only less significant economic releases to print.

United Kingdom

The British Pound depreciated further heading into the weekly close and opened Monday on the defensive. Against the US Dollar it traded from around 1.3070 down to 1.2965 based on the EU rejecting May's latest offer. The EU made a fresh offer of letting Britain exit the backstop but keeping Northern Ireland in it which was not acceptable to May. The parliament vote which takes place on Tuesday 12th March (Wednesday morning in NZT) is expected to be dreadful for May. Several members of cabinet have discussed whether May's time is coming to an end if the vote is a "no" Tuesday. The EU are in the driver's seat as they can either deny the UK an extension and ask them to leave or demand an increase of the "divorce payment" as a trade off for offering an extension of time for article 50. One possible scenario which could play out if support grows for the UK to not leave the EU if the current deal is scrapped, the EU could offer an extension and the UK have another referendum which would turn out "no leave". This week the Pound will be by far the most volatile currency, expect wild swings as news hits the wires. In breaking news, the Pound outperformed Tuesday morning travelling to 1.3280 on hopes a last gasp deal on Brexit can be agreed. Theresa May is on her way to Strasbourg where she will meet European Commission President Juncker.

Japan

The Japanese Yen closed the week outperforming its rivals on the main currency board after risk aversion drove market sentiment and rallied the JPY. Turning a corner after five weeks of losses against the US Dollar the Yen remained in control. Bouncing from 112.13 the pair closed the week around 110.90 as the ECB's decision to launch another round of TLTRO's sent markets in search of safety. Chinese trade figures were also a risk factor with Chinese exports falling more than 20% in February. The trade surplus m/m came to 4.12B much weaker than the 26.3B markets were expecting. Japan's GDP grew by more than 1.90% for the last quarter of 2018 coming in ahead of predictions of 1.80%. The economic watchers survey also supported the Yen releasing at 47.5 for the month of February after 45.6 was expected. This weeks (BoJ) Bank of Japan policy rate is announced on Friday and will remain unchanged.

Canada

Overnight Canada entered DST (daylight saving time) with clocks moved forward 1 hour. The Bank of Canada maintained its 1.75% rate last week saying the global slowdown has been worse than predicted and widespread than the bank had forecast especially in the fourth quarter of 2018. Inflation is forecast to be a little less than 2.0% for most of 2019 but given the pressures on lower Oil prices CPI has eased to 1.4% in January. The BoC are uncertain about future timing of rate increases and will watch developments in Oil markets, household spending and US trade policy. The Canadian Dollar sank across the board and travelled to a yearly low against the greenback. The US Non-Farm Payroll figure Friday was not as rosy as predicted putting the US Dollar under pressure and taking the CAD off its lows. A quiet week for Canadian data on the docket with only Manufacturing Sales to print.

          Cyber security threat to New Zealanders and their businesses is growing even if it is hard to quantify, with CERT citing a significant increase in email extortion scams      Cache   Translate Page      

National Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) NZ director Rob Pope admits the findings of its latest report, that New Zealanders lost $14 million to cyber security attacks in 2018, is just the tip of the iceberg.  

CERT's latest quarterly report shows it received the highest number of incidents reported in a single quarter since it began issuing quarterly reports in August 2017. CERT received over 1,300 cyber security issues between October and December last year from businesses and individuals around the country.  

In the last quarter of 2018 New Zealanders reported losses of over $5.9 million, bringing the total financial loss reported to more than $14 million in 2018.  Reports increased by more than 60% from the third quarter across every region in New Zealand, except Auckland, which saw an increase of 47%.

But CERT director Rob Pope says the true scale of the problem is no doubt much larger.

“We know that the data we have is just the tip of the iceberg, and we encourage more people to report to us so they can get the help they need to recover and we can get more information about how the cyber threat landscape is affecting New Zealand,” Pope says.

He admits it isn’t easy quantifying the true size of the problem.

“The challenge of understanding the scale of unreported incidents is a global issue. But the reports we’ve received this quarter show that these incidents are not only causing financial impact, they’re also affecting people’s confidence online. For instance, scam reports have spiked in quarter four, with a significant increase in email extortion scams,” Pope says.

“This is where attackers email a seemingly legitimate threat and demand urgent payment to revoke it – examples we’ve seen include bomb threat emails sent to businesses through to threats of sharing embarrassing images.

“Whether you’re an employee in a large company or checking your personal emails at home, receiving an extortion email can be a frightening experience. Even though it’s highly unlikely these threats would be realised, they can discourage people from participating in the online environment.”

Netsafe CEO Martin Cocker says the figures in the CERT report aren’t surprising. The organisation is an independent, non-profit group which provides New Zealanders with information and support about online safety. 

“CERT NZ is only a couple of years old and as it becomes more well-known they will see their reported numbers go up and up,” Cocker says.

He says there’s always going to be a difference between the number of businesses and people who experience cyber security issues and the number who report it.

But Cocker says Netsafe, like CERT NZ, it is also seeing higher numbers of people reporting such problems.

“It’s not to say the internet is less safe,” Cocker says.

He says it just that people are now more aware of who to contact if they are the victim of a cyber security attack.

“When you see that CERT NZ has received five times the number of cases, a lot of that is just their growth,” Cocker says.

He agrees with Pope that quantifying the true cost of cyber security is difficult.  

“What CERT NZ can report, and Netsafe is the same, is directly reported cases. But the actual cost of cyber security in New Zealand will be a magnitude higher than that. And I don’t think there’s any doubt that the true cost would be in the hundreds of millions.”

Cocker says the CERT report does highlight the growth in scams. He refers to the sexploitation scam which was a widespread cyber security issue last year.

People received an email that claimed their computer had been hacked and that the scammer has recorded them using a porn website. The email would demand that they send a payment (often in bitcoin) to the scammer, or they will send the recording to the victim’s personal contacts which they claim to have access to. But Cocker says despite the number of victims that were targeted it often failed.

“I don’t think it was very successful because most of the people targeted didn’t know how to pay in bitcoin.”

          US retail sales weak; US inflation expectations low; China car sales slump; Japan and Germany report low key data; Wall Street strangely ebullient; UST 10yr 2.64%; oil up and gold down; NZ$1 = 68.3 USc; TWI-5 = 73.1      Cache   Translate Page      

Here's our summary of key events over the weekend that affect New Zealand, with news of a range of data that is turning decidedly ugly.

First, US retail sales have come in with a very small gain in January, which is better than the decline the month before. In fact, the December decline was widened with revised data, while the January rise represents only a +2.3% gain year-on-year. These levels don't indicate a strongly growing economy. Sharply lower car sales in January drove the result. The latest measure of business inventories show a significant rise, up +4.8% year-on-year. That is a big rise, up by almost +½% of GDP in a year.

A NY Fed survey shows that American consumers expect prices to rise more slowly, a decline in inflation expectations that likely reinforces the official Fed reluctance to hike rates further in the meantime.

Car sales in China continued their downhill run into February, falling for the eighth consecutive month. Vehicle sales in February - a period that includes the Spring Festival holiday - totaled 1.2 million, down a chunky -17% from a year earlier.

And Japan's machine tool orders slumped as well. They fell -29% in February from the same month a year ago, the fifth straight drop, and the rate of decline is getting steeper as overseas demand for these investment goods dries up.

In Germany, plunging car output drove an unexpected drop in production of German goods in January and an industry body cut its 2019 growth forecast, adding to signs that trade war tensions and unease about Brexit are weighing on Europe's largest economy. And the German government has apparently cut its in-house growth outlook to +0.8% from +1.0%, the second reduction in less than two months. They follow others.

And this is despite a very large flow of funds out of the UK and into Europe ahead of a hard Brexit. A new study shows that more than NZ$1.5 tin has already flowed, equivalent to "about -10% of the UK's banking assets". The main destinations seem to be Dublin, Paris and Frankfurt.

And Turkey is in recession shrinking by -2.4% in the fourth quarter of 2018, from the previous quarter. This follows a -1.6% drop the previous quarter, making two quarters of falling growth - the definition of recession. (Turkey is the world's 18th largest economy.)

You wouldn't know any of this from equity market movements. Today Wall Street is up +1.3% in a risk-on shift in sentiment. That follows a +0.7% rise on most European markets. And they followed strong gains yesterday in Tokyo (+0.5%), Hong Kong (+1.0%) and Shanghai (+1.9%). Perhaps markets sense the US-China trade talks will end well. Perhaps they are blind to the economic data. Or perhaps they sense major new money printing is on its way. Who knows? It is hard to find any analysis that can reconcile investor mood and the global economic data trends.

The UST 10yr yield is a little firmer today by +1 bp and is now at 2.64%. Their 2-10 curve remains at +16 bps while their negative 1-5 curve is at -8 bps. The Aussie Govt 10yr is down -1 bp to 2.02%, the China Govt 10yr is up +1 bp to 3.17%, while the NZ Govt 10 yr is also up 1 bp to 2.11%. The New Zealand 10 year swap rate is at a record low again of 2.37%.

Gold is lower, down to US$1,292 and a -US$6 fall since this time yesterday.

US oil prices are now just over US$56.50/bbl while the Brent benchmark is just over US$66.50/bbl. That's a small rise overnight. The United States will drive global oil supply growth over the next five years, adding another 4 mln bbd to the country's already booming output, the International Energy Agency said.

The Kiwi dollar is at 68.3 USc and a little firmer. On the cross rates we have gained on the Aussie and now at 96.8 AUc which is its highest level since September 2016. Against the euro we are up to 60.8 euro cents. That puts the TWI-5 at 73.1.

Bitcoin is marginally softer at US$3,844. This rate is charted in the exchange rate set below.

          Government warned of big bank backlash in wake of surprise Reserve Bank capital proposals going above international norm      Cache   Translate Page      
Finance Minister Grant Robertson & RBNZ Governor Adrian Orr.

The Government has been warned by the Reserve Bank (RBNZ) to expect “intensive lobbying” from large banks on the regulator’s proposals to require them to hold more capital.

The RBNZ, a week before it on December 14 released a consultation document on its proposals, told the Government that while it had signalled the direction it was heading in, it believed banks weren’t expecting “increases of the scale” it proposed.

It also acknowledged, in the briefing paper prepared for Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, Finance Minister Grant Robertson and Commerce and Consumer Affairs Minister Kris Faafoi, that its proposals went further than international standards suggested.

However, in a briefing paper dated February 12, the RBNZ said the public feedback it had received was mostly supportive.

“We are attempting to make complex issues such as capital more accessible to a broader range of stakeholders, especially the general public,” the RBNZ said.

“We are getting more submissions from the general public than we would normally expect for a consultation such as this, and most have been supportive.”

Interest.co.nz has obtained these RBNZ briefings to government ministers under the Official Information Act. The papers, prepared by the RBNZ’s Financial Policy Manager Ian Woolford and signed off by the Deputy Governor Geoff Bascand, explain the proposals and detail the likely responses.

The 'likely bank responses' in the RBNZ's words

The RBNZ, in the December briefing explained: “We anticipate a negative reaction from the large banks.

“The large banks – effectively the four Australian owned banks – operate under a capital calculation framework that currently gives them an unjustifiably large capital advantage over the other banks in the system that are subject to our capital requirements.

"This is, they currently hold less capital for the same exposures than the small banks are required to. Our consultation will propose closing this gap.

“This gap between large and small banks originated as a result of the international standards, and is something that many countries’ regulators are grappling with.

"As a result, the uneven playing field concern is an issue that is being addressed through the international standards by way of limiting the gap by putting a floor on how much lower banks may operate under the set of standards known as ‘internal models’ requirements.

“The RBNZ is proposing to follow the international approach, but is proposing to go further in closing the gap than other countries (including Australia) and indeed further than the international standards suggest.

“As such, we expect that the banks that operate on the other capital framework (the ‘standardised approach’) will support our proposals in this regard.

“Our advice is to anticipate intensive lobbying from the large banks…”

High interest rates, banks exiting the market?

Indeed the lobbying from investment bank, UBS, has stood out.

It has suggested that the RBNZ’s bank capital proposals would see the Australian banks in New Zealand increase their mortgage rates by between 80 and 125 basis points.

Guessing it would be “highly unlikely” for the RBNZ not to follow through on its proposals, UBS has also suggested Australia’s major banks may look to sell their New Zealand subsidiaries.

The RBNZ, in its February briefing, said: “We estimate that banks will largely be able to meet the proposed requirements by retaining their expected earnings over the five-year transition period instead of paying dividends…

“Interest rates for borrowers may settle slightly higher, and depositors slightly lower, but this impact should be balanced against the benefits of the proposals.”

Robertson: 'I don’t think I’ve received the backlash'

Asked by interest.co.nz whether the backlash he has received has been as severe as expected, Robertson said: “I don’t think I’ve received the backlash, because it’s the RBNZ’s proposal.

“Clearly these are changes that the banks have got concerns about – everybody can see that. What I’d ask is for people to use the consultation process to work through those concerns.”

Robertson in February told interest.co.nz he hadn’t received advice to indicate the RBNZ’s proposals would cause an economic slowdown. Housing and Urban Development Minister Phil Twyford said they wouldn’t cause a KiwiBuild catastrophe.  

Meanwhile National’s Finance Spokesperson Amy Adams feared they could cause a credit crunch.

Confidence in credit availability among those in the agricultural sector has hit rock bottom according to ANZ’s latest Business Outlook survey.

The RBNZ’s consultation timeframe has been extended from late-March to May 3. The RBNZ is expected to make key decisions in the third quarter of the year.

          Fashion careers: How to succeed in fashion with the co-founder of Lucas Hugh, Anjhe Marcus      Cache   Translate Page      
#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Lucas Hugh is a London-based activewear brand that incorporates futuristic design with technical performance. Established in 2010 by co-CEO and Creative Director Anjhe Marcus, Lucas Hugh was the first to incorporate the fully-bonded seam –used in Olympic-quality swimwear –into activewear. The brand caught fire with the release of The Hunger Games in 2013 where Marcus designed and developed the training outfits featured in the film.

Anjhe Marcus tells FashionUnited how her experiences working in the fashion industry inspired her to start a business that promotes well-being and encouragement. Designing with a purpose, Lucas Hugh continues to deliver unparalleled products for the modern entrepreneurial woman with an active lifestyle. Here she shares her tips on how to succeed in the fashion business.

What are your 3 tips for success?

  • Stay focused and don’t divert from your goal.
  • Find a way to maintain a positive mindset. Try not to let negativity drag you down.
  • Be open-minded, you’re not the best at everything. Find the right talent for your team.

#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

As the co-CEO and creative director of Lucas Hugh, what does a workday look like?

Currently, I’m the co-founder (along with my husband) and a creative director who is deeply involved in the brand. Depending on the day, I’ll be planning a photo shoot, managing product development, fittings, branding, marketing, web development and even overseeing customer service. I’m definitely on the go and in a lot of meetings, but I always try to include fitness into my day. As a mother of two young children, the time I work-out now revolves around them. Since my youngest is only 1 year old, I’m running on lack of sleep so I come into the office early and use my lunch break for a work-out. If I need to focus on a project, I may pop outside and work from the Soho House to refresh my environment.

What challenges do you face in the fashion business? How do you stay motivated?

Running a business, you’re constantly challenged on a daily basis and 50 percent of your job is to find solutions for the problems. So many obstacles happen every day that the most important thing I find is how to manage it personally by staying internally positive and not let the negativity get you down. Sticking to a routine with exercising has helped me stay motivated. At Lucas Hugh, our values are being smart, considered and first. Internally we try to practice a positive solution-focused approach, whereby team members are accountable to providing solutions alongside problems.

How was Lucas Hugh founded, what inspired you?

After studying fashion design in New Zealand, I was a swimwear designer for about 15 years. After launching my own swimwear brand, I went to New York to work for Marc Jacobs and then for Alexander McQueen in London. I always had the desire to start my own business, but I wanted to develop a product that was necessary in the market. In 2007 I noticed that there wasn’t a product for women which combined high fashion prints and cuts with technical sportswear.

Because of my love of swimwear, I understood how to use technical fabrics and saw opportunity to adapt techniques – such as the bonded seam - that had been traditionally used in swimwear into activewear. However, because the product was so specialized, I spent 2 years researching and working on different prototypes before we launched the business in 2010. The name was inspired by both my British and New Zealand grandfathers, Lucas and Hugh, who were really into fitness and well-being. Originally from New Zealand, having an active lifestyle has been an important part of my daily routine since I was little. I felt a versatile product that could be worn from the gym to the boardroom was missing for women.

#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

You used to design for your own swimwear brand and also worked for influential fashion design houses. How did these past experiences working in fashion influence you?

Coming from the fashion industry is an interesting experience and working for prominent fashion designers showed me how hierarchal and competitive the environment is. Not to mention the long hours, low pay and the feeling that you “must swim or you’ll drown.” This impression really informed me on how I’d want to set up my own business as an open, collaborative and encouraging environment despite your level within the company. Especially as an activewear brand, health and wellness are extremely important for us. You’ll find Lucas Hugh employees working out together as a team and taking breaks outside is encourage to reset and focus. We believe in being “fit in the body, fit in the mind.”

We believe in being “fit in the body, fit in the mind.”

Why did you decide to specialise in premium activewear for women?

To place an emphasis on the term premium, this was a conscious decision we made since the beginning. When you look at swimwear, there are different tiers and people would invest in a beautifully designed piece from a premium label. Within activewear, there was a gap in this category where a product was well designed and functional.

Inclusive exclusivity is an approach that we’ve found resonates with our customers. For example, our limited collections often fly off the shelves. Through consumer feedback we have learned that although women want to be unique and stand out from each other, they also want to be in the know and be the expert that shares quality products with their inner circle. The Lucas Hugh customer is not of a specific age group, but a woman who is decisive, knows what she wants and being active is part of her daily routine.

#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

How is technology integrated into the production of Lucas Hugh designs?

Since day one, Lucas Hugh has been a European manufactured product so we’ve selected the best quality Italian fabrics which are moisture wicking, quick to dry and tend to have a high compression content so are very supportive and even help with muscle recovery. Designs we’ve built into our products feature details such as integrated key pockets and high visibility triangles. We’re known for using the fully bonded seam which is a laser cut heat seal originally designed for racing swimsuits and makes the garment more aerodynamic.

Our product development cycle is about 2 years. With our prototypes we’ll do different types of testing such as abrasion, wash and colour fade. Then we’ll do physical testing with various sports from yoga to running on the treadmill. Trainers in London will wear and test our products before they’re ready to hit the market.

Driven to advance the future of activewear, Lucas Hugh incorporates a new performance stretch satin fabric for SS 2019. The collection carries energy and sophistication beyond the gym with the limited-edition pieces such as Tapeology and the Pivot Skirt styles.
This interview was created in cooperation with Lucas Hugh to promote working in fashion.

1823
Дмитрий Андреевич Толстой
русский государственный деятель и историк: обер-прокурор Святейшего Правительствующего Синода (23 июня 1865 — 23 апреля 1880), министр народного просвещения (1866—1880), министр внутренних дел и шеф жандармов (1882—1889). Также член Государственного совета (с 1866), сенатор. При Александре II был известен как энергичный реформатор, а при Александре III — как проводник политики контрреформ. Родился в Москве. Представитель поволжской, сравнительно захудалой ветви Толстых. Его отец, штабс-капитан граф Андрей Степанович Толстой (1793—1830), умер, когда сыновья Всеволод (1824-1843) и Дмитрий находились в нежном возрасте. Мать Прасковья Дмитриевна, урождённая Павлова (умер в 1849), овдовев, вышла замуж за Василия Яковлевича Венкстерна. Единственная сестра Елизавета (1825—1867), в первом браке Петровская, вторым браком была замужем за самарским губернатором Н.А.Замятниным (1824—1868). В 1842 г. Дмитрий Толстой окончил курс в Царскосельском лицее. С 1848 г. состоял при Департаменте духовных дел иностранных исповеданий Министерства внутренних дел и занимался составлением истории иностранных исповеданий. В 1853 г. назначен директором канцелярии Морского министерства и в этом звании принимал участие в составлении хозяйственного устава Морского министерства и нового положения об управлении Морским ведомством. В 1861 г. некоторое время управлял Департаментом народного просвещения, затем был назначен сенатором. В 1865 назначен обер-прокурором Святейшего Синода, в 1866 — министром народного просвещения и занимал оба эти поста до апреля 1880, когда был назначен членом Государственного Совета. При Толстом были открыты: Историко-филологический институт (1867), Варшавский университет, Сельскохозяйственный институт в Новой Александрии (1869), Московские высшие женские курсы (1872), Русская филологическая семинария в Лейпциге для приготовления учителей древних языков (1875); Томский университет (1878). Нежинский лицей преобразован в Историко-филологический институт, а Ярославский лицей — в лицей юридический. В 1872 году издано положение о городских училищах, в 1874 — положение о начальных училищах, для надзора за которыми были ещё в 1869 году учреждены должности инспекторов народных училищ. В духовном ведомстве при графе Толстом произведено преобразование духовно-учебных заведений (1867—1869). В мае 1882 занял пост министра внутренних дел и шефа жандармов и оставался на этом посту до самой смерти.

Дмитрий Андреевич Толстой, 1887.
Считался проводником политической реакции и поборником «сильной» власти. Законодательные меры, проведённые и подготовленные при нём, были направлены к возвышению дворянства, к регламентации крестьянского быта и к преобразованию местного управления и самоуправления в смысле расширения влияния администрации. Изданы законы о крестьянских семейных разделах и о найме сельских рабочих, подготовлены положение о земских начальниках и новое земское положение. Свобода печати существенно ограничена временными правилами 1882 года. Подробнее см. Контрреформы Александра III. С 1882 года граф Д.А.Толстой в чине действительного тайного советника состоял также президентом Императорской Академии наук. Жил в это время на набережной Фонтанки, в доме №16. Похоронен в родовом имении — селе Маково Рязанской губернии. В качестве министра народного просвещения граф Толстой провёл в 1871 году реформу среднего образования, заключавшуюся, по свидетельству авторитетного историка А.А.Корнилова, во введении в учебные программы больших объёмов математики вместе со значительным усилением преподавания латинского и греческого языков в гимназиях, причём только воспитанникам классических гимназий было предоставлено право поступать в университет; бывшие реальные гимназии преобразованы в реальные училища (1872). В разработку идеологии этой реформы важнейший вклад внёс публицист и профессор М.Н.Катков. Одной из целей реформы ставилось развитие у учащихся умения основательно мыслить и, таким образом, воспрепятствование распространению поверхностных радикальных взглядов. С аналогичными целями (чтобы исключить необходимость поездок студентов в европейские университеты и, тем самым, воспрепятствовать распространению «революционной заразы» из Европы) предпринимались серьёзные усилия по созданию и надлежащему оснащению исследовательских лабораторий в российских университетах. Умер в Санкт-Петербурге 7 мая 1889 года. В его честь названо село Толстовка на юге Амурской области, к востоку от Благовещенска, основано в 1884 г. Жена (с 20 ноября 1853) — София Дмитриевна Бибикова (1826—1907), дочь министра внутренних дел Д.Г.Бибикова. Дети: София (24 октября 1854 — 27 февраля 1917), фрейлина, замужем за графом Сергеем Толем, Санкт-Петербургским губернатором. Известна благотворительной деятельностью и как автор книги о масонстве; Глеб (29 октября 1862 — 28 января 1904), титулярный советник, служил земским начальником в Рязанской губернии. Признание: Почётный член (1866) и президент (1882) Императорской Академии наук; почётный член Музея имени Его Императорского Высочества Государя Наследника Цесаревича; почётный член Санкт-Петербургского минералогического общества и Императорского Московского технического училища; Орден Святого апостола Андрея Первозванного; Демидовская премия (1847); почётный гражданин Череповца 12 ноября 1874) — за особенно оказанное внимание и содействие к процветанию города. Д.А.Толстой написал «Историю финансовых учреждений России со времени основания государства до кончины императрицы Екатерины II» (Санкт-Петербург, 1848), исследование об истории католицизма в России (Le Catholicisme romain en Russie; П., 1863—1864) и ряд статей по истории просвещения в России, помещённых в «Журнале Министерства народного просвещения» и в «Русском архиве». По его инициативе предпринято издание «Материалов для истории Академии наук». «На основании его действий, я вывел заключение, что вообще это был человек не заурядный, человек с волей и образованием, человек, в известном смысле, честный; во всяком случае — это была крупная личность. Всех его воззрений я не разделял. Гр. Толстой был крайний правый, и Император Александр III назначил его министром внутренних дел после графа Игнатьева именно потому, что он был ультраконсервативных воззрений. <…> Граф Толстой, как я уже сказал, был, во всяком случае, крупною личностью. — Многое, что он сделал сначала, когда был министром народного просвещения, а потом, когда был министром внутренних дел — подлежит порицанию. Его преобразованиям, крайне реакционным, Россия в значительной степени была обязана теми волнениями в обратную сторону, которые мы пережили несколько лет тому назад.» — Витте С.Ю. 1849-1894: Детство.

Кроме того, Тренквальд много работал с фресками в венских и пражских церквях.
В 1867—1873 годах — директор Пражской академии искусств, затем преподавал в Венской академии художеств. Среди его известных учеников — Богумир Роубалик. Умер в Перхтольдсдорфе (Мёдлинг, Нижняя Австрия, Австрия) 28 июля 1897 года.

1825
Бенджамин Маунтфорт (Benjamin Mountfort)
один из самых выдающихся архитекторов Новой Зеландии в девятнадцатом столетии. Наиболее известен возведением зданий в городе Крайстчерч, где зарекомендовал себя уникальным архитектурным стилем, позже работал во многих других населённых пунктах региона Кентербери. Значительное влияние на творчество мастера оказала англо-католическая философия, стоящая в основе зодчества викторианской эпохи, часто именно с его персоной связывают развитие неоготического стиля Новой Зеландии. Среди его готических проектов есть как каменные здания, так и деревянные, выполненные, прежде всего, в традициях провинциального строительства страны. Благодаря его усилиям, Кентербери славится неповторимым стилем местных застроек. Бенджамин родился в Бирмингеме, индустриальном английском городе, в семье парфюмера и ювелира Томаса Маунтфорта и его жены Сюзанны (урождённая Вулфильд). Повзрослев, юноша уехал в Лондон, где изучал основы архитектуры под руководством англо-католического проектировщика Ричарда Кромвелла Карпентера, средневековый готический стиль которого существенно повлиял на молодого мастера и на долгие годы предопределил направленность его творчества. В 1848 году он окончил обучение и, оставшись в столице, стал получать первый реальный опыт возведения зданий. Там же, 20 августа 1850 года, женился на Эмили Элизабет Ньюман, спустя 18 дней после свадьбы супруги эмигрировали в Новую Зеландию. Они были в числе первых поселенцев провинции Кентербери, прибыв туда 16 декабря на одном из знаменитых «первых четырёх кораблей» — Шарлотта-Джейн. Их имена в числе других первых поселенцев, «пилигримов», можно прочесть на мемориальной мраморной доске, расположенной на Кафедральной площади, в проектировании которой участвовал сам Маунтфорт. Умер в Эвонсайде, Новая Зеландия, 15 марта 1898 года. Литература: Fletcher, Banister (1996). Sir Banister Fletcher’s a History of Architecture. Architectural Press, 20th ed.

Происходил из дворянской семьи (по другим данным — сын священника). В 1849 году окончил Московское дворцовое архитектурное училище со званием архитекторского помощника старшего класса. С 1851 года работал во Владимире, сначала архитектором Владимирской казённой палаты, с 1856 года — владимирским епархиальным архитектором. В 1857 году был назначен в академики. С 1866 года и вплоть до своей кончины служил в Строительном отделении Владимирского губернского правления. С 1867 года являлся активным членом Императорского Московского археологического общества, состоял в Московском архитектурном обществе и Российском археологическом обществе. В 1879 году был утверждён секретарём Владимирского губернского статистического комитета и редактором неофициальной части Владимирских губернских ведомостей. Н.А.Артлебен активно занимался исследованием Владимиро-Суздальского зодчества, первым научно обосновал его своеобразие. Занимался изучением архитектуры и истории Владимирского края XV—XVII веков, реставрировал древние сооружения. В 1858 году он производил осмотр церкви Покрова на Нерли. В 1859 году выполнил проект реставрации церкви Рождества Богородицы во Владимире (1190-1192). В том же году совместно с Д.Корицким осуществил реставрацию Богородице-Рождественского монастыря. Памятник домонгольского времени при этом был снесён и построен заново, то есть по существу утрачен. В 1873 по заданию Губернского строительного комитета составил проект реставрации Золотых ворот. Как член Московского археологического общества принимал участие в многочисленных реставрациях и осмотрах памятников. В 1876 году осуществил осмотр Смоленского кремля, в 1871—1875 годах реставрацию Правильной и Книгохранительной палат Московского печатного двора (Никольская улица, 15, во дворе), которая была признана современниками образцовой. В 1877 году осуществлял осмотр и участвовал в Комиссии, рассматривавшей проекты переделок в Покровском соборе. Выполнил реставрацию Успенского собора во Владимире и издал по данной теме отдельную монографию, за что был удостоен на Политехнической выставке 1872 года большой золотой медали от Общества любителей естествознания, антропологии и этнографии. Труд Н.А.Артлебена «Древности Суздальско-Владимирской области, сохранившиеся в памятниках зодчества в пределах Владимирской губернии» был удостоен в 1881 году большой серебряной медали Российского археологического общества. Умер в родном городе 26 марта 1882 года.

Ричард Кок (Richard Coke)
сенатор США в 1877—1895 годах, 15-й губернатор штата Техас, член демократической партии. Американский юрист, фермер и государственный деятель из Уэйко, штат Техас. Его дядя — конгрессмен Ричард Кок-младший. Кок родился в Уильямсберге, штат Виргиния, в семье Джона и Элизы (в девичестве Хэнкинс) Кок. В 1848 году он окончил колледж Вильгельма и Марии со степенью юриста. В 1850 году Кок переехал в Техас и открыл юридическую практику в Уэйко. В 1852 году он женился на Марии Хорн. У них родились четверо детей, но все они умерли в возрасте до 30 лет. В 1861 году Кок был делегатом съезда по отделению Техаса в Остине и добровольцем вступил в армию Конфедерации. В 1862 году он собрал отряд, который вошёл в состав 15-го пехотного полка Техаса, и служил в звании капитана до окончания гражданской войны. 3 ноября 1863 года он был ранен в сражении, известном как «Бой в дельте реки Бурбо» (Bayou Bourbeau), около Opelousas, штат Луизиана. После войны Кок вернулся домой в Уэйко. В 1865 году Кок был назначен окружным судьёй, а в 1866 году был избран членом Верховного суда Техаса. Однако в следующем году военный губернатор, генерал Филип Шеридан, сместил его за «создание препятствий на пути реконструкции Юга». В 1873 году Кок был избран губернатором штата Техас от Демократической партии, и вступил в должность в 1874 году. Его деятельность на этом посту была отмечена активными действиями по сбалансированию бюджета, а также принятием в 1876 году новой Конституции штата. Он также сыграл важную роль в создании сельскохозяйственного и технического университета штата Техас (Texas A&M University). Кок покинул пост губернатора в декабре 1876 года, после своего избрания в Сенат США. Он был переизбран в сенат 1882 и 1888 годах, а в 1894 году не стал переизбираться и вернулся в Уэйко. После борьбы с разливом реки Бразос в апреле 1897 года Кок заболел. После непродолжительной болезни он умер в своём доме в Уэйко 14 мая 1897 года и был похоронен на кладбище Оквуд. В его честь назван округ в Западном Техасе.

Антониу Висенти Мендис Масиэл (португальское имя - Antônio Vicente Mendes Maciel; более известный как Антониу Консельейру, Antônio Conselheiro)
бразильский религиозный деятель, проповедник, основатель деревни Канудус и руководитель крестьянского восстания Канудус (1896—1897). Прозвище Консельейру можно перевести как «Советник», «Наставник», «Проповедник» или «Утешитель». Антониу Масиэл родился в Вила-ду-Кампу-Майор в Сеаре. В 1834 году его мать умерла, и отец вскоре женился снова. Антониу с детства хотел стать священником, но в 1855 году его отец умер, и Антониу пришлось взять на себя заботу о семье. Антониу стал работать школьным учителем, в 1857 году женился. В 1861 году жена ушла от Антониу, после чего он переехал в провинцию Баия.

Восстание Канудус
После отмены в Бразилии рабства в 1888 году на пустующие земли провинции Баия начали стекаться толпы освобождённых рабов, безземельных крестьян, бедных индейцев, преступников. Ими было основано поселение Канудус, ставшее центром своеобразной крестьянской общины. К 1896 году в Канудусе проживало 25—30 тысяч жителей[4]. Антониу Консельейру, объявив себя пророком, организовал в Канудусе религиозную коммуну из 9 тысяч человек. В своих проповедях он обещал лучшую жизнь и возвращение первого португальского короля Себастьяна. Консельейру выступал против республиканского строя, сравнивая республику с антихристом, призывал не подчиняться её законам, не платить налоги. За несколько лет число сторонников Консельейру выросло по разным оценкам от 20 до 30 тысяч человек из штатов Сеара, Пернамбуку, Сержипи и Баия. Под руководством Консельейру участники восстания начали грабить проезжих торговцев и местных помещиков. Правительство штата Баия, всеми силами пыталось восстановить порядок, однако повстанцам удалось разбить несколько отрядов полиции, посланных против них штатом, а затем и федеральные подкрепления. В конце концов правительство объявило всех участников восстания сторонниками реставрации монархии, а следовательно — врагами республики и демократии. На борьбу с восставшими власти послали 8-тысячную армию, включая тяжёлую артиллерию. Военная операция растянулась на много месяцев. 22 сентября 1897 года Антониу Консельейру умер вКанудусе (Баия, Бразилия) от дизентерии, после чего восстание было окончательно разбито. 5 октября труп Антониу вырыли каратели, которые обезглавили его и сожгли.

Иван Николаевич Дурново
русский государственный деятель, министр внутренних дел (1889—1895), председатель Комитета министров (1895—1903). Родился в Калужской губернии, в дворянской семье Дурново. Его отец — Николай Александрович Дурново (1804 — около 1862) и мать — Елизавета Игнатьевна (Ивановна ?) Ключарёва (? — не ранее 1838) владели имениями в Калужской губернии — в Медынском, Боровском и Малоярославецком уездах, а после того как в 1843 году приобрели имение Жукотки в Черниговской губернии были включены в VI часть Родословной книги Черниговского дворянства. Окончил Михайловское артиллерийское училище (1852), участвовал в Крымской войне; 8 апреля 1854 года был награждён орденом Святой Анны 4-й степени, с надписью «за храбрость». В 1856 году был переведён в Кронштадтский артиллерийский гарнизон, откуда вскоре уволен по болезни. Вернулся в Черниговскую губернию, где был избран сперва уездным, а затем и губернским предводителем дворянства (с 1863 по 1865). В 1865 году был пожалован в звание камер-юнкера. В 1870 году Дурново был назначен екатеринославским губернатором. В 1882 году был назначен товарищем министра внутренних дел графа Д.А.Толстого. В 1885 году пожалован в статс-секретари. В 1886 году Дурново также возглавил 4-е отделение собственной императорской канцелярии, через которое осуществлялась благотворительная деятельность. На этом посту Дурново снискал всеобщие симпатии; им было открыто более 500 новых учреждений. Сергей Витте писал о личных качествах и карьерном пути И.Н.Дурново: «Он был приятным предводителем дворянства и приятным губернатором, и приятным товарищем министра внутренних дел; но человек он был не культурный, не умный, скорее ограниченный; человек хлебосольный, милый и очень хитрый». А.Ф.Кони «Статьи о государственных деятелях»: «...представительный выездной лакей, попавший в силу злосчастной судьбы в министры внутренних дел и участвовавший вместе со всей бюрократией в умышленном держании народа в глубоком невежестве...» После смерти Д.А.Толстого в 1889 году И.Н.Дурново стал министром внутренних дел. При нём были осуществлены т. н. контрреформы: «О земских начальниках» (1889),«Положение о земских учреждениях» (1890), «Городовое положение» (1892). Проекты этих постановлений, усиливающих власть дворян в земствах и одновременно ставящих их под жёсткий контроль правительства, были подготовлены ещё графом Толстым. Собственные законодательные инициативы Дурново полностью соответствовали взглядам императора и были направлены на консервацию крестьянской общины (передел общинных угодий не чаще, чем в 12 лет; необходимость согласия общины на выход крестьянина из неё; больший административный контроль над переселением сельского населения), усиление патерналистских начал на низовом уровне государственного управления. «Конечно, Иван Николаевич Дурново не мог бы быть министром внутренних дел при Императоре, который сам не представлял бы собою определенную, твердую личность; он мог быть министром внутренних дел только при таком Императоре, как Александр III. Что касается политики, то он исполнял то, что указывал ему Император, старался со всеми ладить. В административной, внутренней части министерства внутренних дел, он опирался на своих помощников.» — Витте С.Ю. 1849—1894: Детство. Царствования Александра II и Александра III, глава 15 // Воспоминания. — Москва : Соцэкгиз, 1960. — Том 1. — Страница 303. — 75 000 экземпляров.

Иван Дурново
Несмотря на доверие императорской семьи, в целом в столице Дурново не пользовался ни авторитетом, ни уважением как в среде высших чиновников, так и среди общественности. Тем не менее, новый император Николай II в 1895 году назначил его председателем Комитета министров. Несмотря на неспособность проводить собственный политический курс, Дурново сохранял этот пост до конца жизни. Умер близ Берлина 11 июня 1903 года.

Леон Кладель (французское имя - Léon Cladel)
французский писатель-романист. Родился в Монтобане. Сын шорника. Дебютировал в 1862 году романом «Les Martyrs ridicules», предисловие к которому было написано Бодлером. В следующих своих романах Кладель примкнул к реалистическому направлению. В 1860-е гг. опубликовал цикл "крестьянских" повестей и романов. Парижская Коммуна 1871 определила его новые темы. В произведениях 1870-1880-х гг., прославляя коммунаров, он выдвигал героев-пролетариев: роман "Жак Ратае" ("INRI"; 1872-1887, опубликован 1931, русский перевод 1933, 1951) и др. Упрощенные характеристики героев и декларативный стиль не затемнили искреннего демократического пафоса Кладеля, тогда же отмеченного передовой русской критикой (предисловие И.С.Тургенева к сборнику Кладеля "Очерки и рассказы из жизни простого народа", 1877). За роман «Une Maudite», признанный по суду безнравственным, Кладель был приговорён к тюремному заключению. Лучшими романами Кладеля считаются «Mes paysans, le Bouscasier» (1869) и «La Fête votive de Saint Bartholomé Porte-Glaive» (1872), в которых он с большим талантом описывает крестьянский быт. Многие романы Кладеля были переведены на русский язык. Умер в Севре 20 июля 1892 года.

австрийский скрипач и музыкальный педагог. Родился в Пеште, Австрийская империя. Учился в Венской консерватории у Йозефа Бёма. В 1858—1861 годах играл в придворном оркестре в Веймаре, затем в ганноверском придворном оркестре под руководством Йозефа Иоахима (известно, что в 1865 году Иоахим ушёл в отставку с этого поста в знак протеста против того, что королевская администрация отказалась повысить статус Грюна из-за его еврейского происхождения). Затем Грюн совершил продолжительное европейское турне как солист, после чего вернулся в Вену и в 1868—1909 годах играл в оркестре Венской придворной оперы и в Венском филармоническом оркестре. С 1877 года также профессор Венской консерватории. Среди учеников Грюна — Карл Флеш, Луиджи фон Куниц, Франц Кнайзель, Оскар Бак, Ханс Вессели и др.

Сандзё Санэтоми (японское имя - 三条 実美)
один из представителей киотской аристократии, выступившей на стороне императора Мэйдзи в войне Босин. Позднее временно исполнял обязанности премьер-министра Японии. Сандзё Санэтоми родился в Киото, в семье внутреннего министра (японское название - 内大臣) Сандзё Санэцуму. Во время кризиса сёгуната Токугава Сандзё выступал на стороне императора. После отставки Токугавы Ёсинобу и упразднения системы сёгуната Сандзё занимал ряд важных постов в имперском правительстве, включая посты правого (японское название - 内大臣) и главного министров (японское название - 太政大臣). В 1882 году Сандзё стал кавалером Высшего ордена Хризантемы, а 7 июля 1884 года ему был присвоен титул князя — высший по системе кадзоку. После административной реформы, проведенной Ито Хиробуми в 1885 году, Сандзё стал первым министром-хранителем печати Японии. В 1889 году, после отставки правительства Куроды Киётаки император принял отставку и пригласил Сандзё Санэтоми возглавить правительство на несколько месяцев. Однако на сегодняшний день правительство Сандзё обычно рассматривается как продолжение правительства Куроды. Умер в Токио 28 февраля 1891 года.

Theo TTXVN/Reuters, New Zealand đã gia nhập danh sách các nước đình chỉ hoạt động của máy bay Boeing 737 MAX trên không phận lãnh thổ quốc gia, sau vụ tại nạn máy bay Ethiopia khiến 157 người thiệt mạng cuối tuần trước.

          A British-style whitewash      Cache   Translate Page      
Last year, the government announced that they would hold an inquiry into Operation Burnham, the SAS operation in which six Afghan civilians were killed, including a child. But now, it looks as if the "inquiry" is instead becoming a British-style whitewash:
"The ultimate objective is to get to the truth."

Sir Terence Arnold made this commitment as he opened the only hearing of his Operation Burnham inquiry so far held in public.

After hearing arguments on whether proceedings should be held in secret, Arnold and his co-chair Sir Geoffrey Palmer retreated behind closed doors. And that is where they have stayed.

The inquiry was due to finish in April. Instead, key witnesses have walked away, and some of its core participants are disillusioned, with one understood to be on the verge of taking legal action.


The core problem is secrecy, who gets it and who doesn't. Everything NZDF says will be secret, its witnesses protected from scrutiny and challenge. Meanwhile, the whistleblowers who provided information to Nicky Hager and Jon Stephenson, the journalists who exposed this crime, will be expected to give evidence in public and so be exposed to official and unofficial retaliation. And so unsurprisingly, they've decided that the cost of participation is too high. The result will be a one-sided inquiry which makes no effort to get at the truth - basicly an official whitewash for the NZDF. But the result is that whatever the inquiry concludes will simply not be seen as credible, and the taint will linger.

The lesson is clear: the New Zealand political system is incapable of providing justice by official inquiries, at least where the defence and security establishment is concerned. People who want it will have to use leaks and direct court cases instead.

Now that we have finished our 18,000km bicycle tour and basked in the glory of our achievement for the past few weeks, it’s time to admit that we never could have done it without the many kind souls who helped us out along the way. ||

While we planned our trip, we read many inspiring blogs and books and contacted several experienced cyclists for advice. Special mentions go to Anne Mustoe’s book A Bike Ride, which was our first inspiration for cycle touring, and Alastair Humphrey’s brilliant books about his round-the-world cycle tour.

Al Humphreys also organised a pub night in London where we met other cycle tourers - Friedel and Andrew from TravellingTwo, who had already helped us out with lots of advice before our meet-up and have since published a Bike Touring Survival Guide that is packed full of useful tips and information. We also met Justin and Emma from Rolling Tales, who were about to embark on their own journey to New Zealand and who we later met again in Turkey, and Di who we ended up cycling with from Budapest to Istanbul. Tara and Tyler from Going Slowly answered our many pre departure questions via Skype from their tent in Romania and we had the pleasure of catching up with them in Bangkok. Many other blogs provided inspiration as well as practical advice and helped us gain the courage to embark on our own journey.

On our first day leaving London our friends Gerry and Dom cycled out with us. That night we were offered a bed by Andrea in Dartford via the Warmshowers website, making for a great start to our journey. During our tour we were hosted by many other people who invited us into their homes: Catherine & Mathieu in Metz, Charlotte in Strasbourg, Sandra & Alex in Böblingen, Jürgen in Vienna, Ulas in Turkey, Hossein & Sohra in Iran, Mahmud & Mahdie in Iran, Ahmad and his family in Iran, Melanie in Abu Dhabi, Chuen and his mum in Singapore, Ruth & Glen in Darwin, Paul & Jenny in Adelaide, John & Rachel near Timboon, Peter & Corinne in Wye River and Tony & Pam in Fairhaven on the last night of our tour.

Countless people helped us along the way by stopping for a chat, giving us directions, presenting us with food or drinks, waving or giving us the the thumbs up, buying us a meal or inviting us to into their homes, letting us camp in their garden, taking us on tours of their local area or even doing water drops for us in the Australian Outback. There are too many to name, but you know who you are and we will always remember your acts of kindness.

Along the way, some of our friends and family came out to visit us. It was great to see familiar faces en route. Gudrun came to meet us in Ulm, Freddie’s parents, sister and brother-in-law visited us in Vienna, Tony showed us around Budapest, Janna & Marco and Gerry came out to Istanbul, Abhishek & Priya and Amol introduced us to Mumbai, Nick & Aom met us in Bangkok and Nick spent a week cycling with us in Thailand, we met up with Beng near Kuala Lumpur, Tze-Ern and Ben took us out for a meal in Singapore and Guy’s sister Justine visited us in Adelaide. The prize for the most visits however goes to Freddie’s dad, Gerhard, who came out to see us 3 times – in Vienna, Istanbul and Dubai. Each time he carried a parcel full of spare parts, hand delivered from Germany, as well as sponsoring us some treats along the way.

A special thank you goes to everyone who has made a donation to SOS Children’s Villages to sponsor our ride, and to the charity itself who invited us to visit one of their villages in Kerala, India.

When planning our tour, we made sure that our gear was high quality, durable and light weight. The companies supplying our gear have for the most part been extremely helpful when something did go wrong. Icebreaker replaced a worn T-Shirt for free, Ortlieb sent us replacement clips for our panniers, Thermarest sent us two (!) new sleeping mats (the original one had delaminated and the first replacement was lost in the mail), General Ecology sponsored us a new First Need water filter cartridge, and Bikesportz sponsored us new Panaracer tyres.

A huge thank you to the crew at SJS who supplied us with our Thorn Raven bicycles which have served us loyally for over 23,000km without any major issues, not even a broken spoke. They were the most important kit item and they never let us down and certainly the upgrades to double walled rims, thick spokes and Rohloff hub were integral in this.

Our families have been extremely patient and supportive. Despite the fact that they sometimes worried about us, they never complained about our extended tour and always tried to act as if it was normal that we’d call them up from a phone booth in Iran announcing we’d be out of touch for the next 8 days as we were about to cross a desert.

Finally, we have really enjoyed writing this blog and connecting with people through our website, Twitter and more recently Facebook. We still get pretty excited when we receive a message or comment, and the encouragement of our readers has seen us through some tough times. Twitter in particular has allowed us to hook up with many interesting people along the way who were on their own extended cycle tours.

We hope that we were able to pass on some useful information and learnings to people planning their own tour to close the loop and give back what we received when we first started out.

-- THANK YOU!


          Exploring Alice’s Gorges in a 4WD      Cache   Translate Page      

Alice Springs and the East MacDonnell Ranges

Immediately on our arrival in Alice Springs, or “The Alice”, we met some lovely people: first there were Greg and Cyrielle, a French couple working at our campsite, then Steve, a cycle tourer from Canberra, and Andrew and Therese, a New Zealand couple on a 4WD trip occupying the tent spot next to us. We had also really hoped to see Roger and Catherine, the French Canadian couple we met in Turkey, as they were cycling through Australia and planning to be in Alice Springs at the same time as us, but unfortunately we ended up missing them by a day.

The weather was truly miserable for our first few days in Alice Springs: it was freezing cold and raining. We wore all our layers, all day – a T-shirt, two long-sleeved merino wool tops, a fleece and a Goretex jacket, long johns, trousers and two pairs of socks. Freddie even succumbed and purchased a hot water bottle to survive the cold nights. Luckily the weather cleared after a few days, and whilst still cold, it was now clear and sunny, perfect for an afternoon stroll around the campsite where we watched birds and fed the cute little rock wallabies coming down the hill just before sunset.

Therese and Andrew were planning to do a 4WD trip to the East MacDonnell Ranges not far from Alice Springs and kindly invited us for some “off road adventures”. We jumped at the opportunity as it gave us a chance to deviate off the Stuart Highway. We were planning to go for 3 days, then return to Alice Springs before we headed off towards Uluru. Our bikes were securely parked in Scotty the Campsite Caretaker’s shed, and our bike bags strapped to the roof of Andrew and Therese’s Landcruiser.

The prolog of the Finke Desert Race was taking place on the day of our departure. The Kiwis were keen to go, and so were a friendly German couple we also met at the campsite, Christian and Nicole. Together we drove out of town to the racecourse and spent a few hours watching dirt bikes and quads racing along the track. The Finke Desert Race – an annual off-road 229km race through tough desert terrain - was due to take place over the following two days.

Landrover and landcruiser   Andrew and Therese

Leaving the prolog, we said goodbye to Nicole and Christian who were heading out to the racecourse to camp and watch the actual race.

The MacDonnell Ranges are interspersed with numerous gorges, some containing waterholes. We found a small bush campsite near John Hayes Rock Hole which was was unmanned and only accessible on a rough 4WD track travelling up a narrow, rocky creek bed. The facilities were limited to some picnic tables and a long drop toilet, and we shared a campfire with a couple of cheerful men who entertained us with their hour long cooking antics. In the morning we spent a few hours on a beautiful ridge walk around the area with views of the distant ranges then returned back through a creek bed flanked by steep red quarzite cliffs.

Wet feet   Andrew and Therese near John Hayes Rock Hole

Having dismantled our tents, we drove a little further into Trephina Gorge to do another scenic loop walk which involved wading through a creek filled with icy water.

Trephina Gorge

The campsite here at The Bluff was a little busier as it was located in a very picturesque setting, right near the creek. Again we made friends with our neighbours who had had the foresight to collect firewood before entering the national park where firewood collection was prohibited, and had a fun night sharing stories and making damper on their fire.

Camp spot in Trephina Gorge   Ghost Gum

Our plan was to drive to the historic Arltunga gold fields, but on the way we passed the turnoff to N’Dhala Gorge, which was officially closed to traffic.

“Let’s see how closed it really is”, said Therese. We all quickly agreed and with that our fate was sealed.

The 4WD track involved several creek crossings, some of which had recently had water and were still quite wet. Having let down the tires and crossed our first creek successfully, we became more confident that we would be able to get through to the gorge.

Andrew gunned the Landcruiser into the next creek, all was going well, we looked unstoppable and were dismissing the over zealous rangers for closing the track until we entered the soft sand in the middle of the creek. Our speed slowed suddenly as the Landcruiser began to strain, the wheels spun desperately for grip in the soft muddy sand. Soon enough we came to a complete stop, we were royally bogged!

Creek crossing   Stuck

We jumped out to assess the damage, immediately falling into mud up to our shines. As there were no other vehicles around and we had sunk too deep into the soft mud to dig ourselves out, it was time to test out the winch. Pulling out the cable required all of our combined strength. Guy and Therese strapped the cable around a nearby River Red Gum trunk in the middle of the river while Andrew got the car ready and Freddie captured the event with our camera. As Andrew engaged the winch, we listened to the creaking sounds of the trunk straining under pressure. It was clear the 4 ton Cruiser was too much load.

A sturdier tree was found and luckily the cable was just long enough to reach it. By now, the wheels were sunk 3/4 into the mud. The tree held strong but this time the winch was faltering, straining under the pressure. After a few slips it slowly gained traction and pulled out the Cruiser to the safety of the creek bank.

Andrew preparing the winch   Therese directing the rescue

We were happy to make it to N’Dhala Gorge and had a little walk there, followed by lunch to strengthen our nerves for the return trip, back across the same creek beds. To our relief, we got through the creeks without getting stuck and soon were on our way to the Arltunga gold fields. Due to our little misadventure it was now late afternoon, too late to do much sightseeing, and rather than driving back to Alice Springs that day, we decided to stay out for another night.

The Arltunga campsite marked on our map had recently closed down but we found a little track nearby and set up our camp in the bush. For our last night, Therese made a delicious chocolate pudding, cooked in a camp oven on the fire.

In the morning, we went back to Arltunga to explore the historic gold mines. Arltunga had experienced a gold rush in the 1880s and 1890s when gold dust was discovered in the local quarz. As the location was so remote, life was very hard for the miners. All supplies came from Adelaide via the rail head at Oodnadatta. The last 700km of the long journey had to be completed with the help of camels or horses, or on foot. Many miners pushed all their belongings, food and water on heavy wooden wheelbarrows over sand dunes and dusty tracks all the way from Oodnadatta.

There was not much water in the area, and a harsh climate meant summers often saw temperatures rising above 50°C, whereas winters were freezing cold. Extracting the gold dust from the quarz was hard and hazardous work, and after 20 years the mines were abandoned in favour of more promising gold fields.

Having crawled into some of the old mines and found a couple of gold specks in the local quarz (Therese discovered a hidden talent), it was time for us to return to Alice Springs. We had really enjoyed our 4WD outing, it was fantastic to get off the beaten track especially with such great company in Andrew and Therese, thanks guys!

After a week off the bikes we were really looking forward to getting going again and experiencing the immediacy and intensity of exploring the Outback from the seat of a bicycle. A few more days in Alice Springs saw us completing some last minute odds and ends in town, hanging out at the Botanic Gardens and sampling the local cafes. We also visited the Royal Flying Doctors Service to find out more about the amazing medical service provided to remote communities and cattle stations, where pilots often have to land on makeshift airstrips, most without tarmac, and many without any lighting.

The Desert Park was also worth a visit as we learned a lot about the flora and fauna of the inland rivers, sand country and woodlands of central Australia. The nocturnal house exhibited many endangered or extinct (in the wild) mammals, and the birds of prey show impressed with free flying kites and falcons.

From Alice Springs, we had originally thought we might rent a car for the detour to Uluru (Ayer’s Rock) and Kings Canyon, but in the end it didn’t feel right to arrive at this deeply symbolic place at the centre of our new home country by car. We wanted to explore the area by bicycle, even if it would add an extra two weeks and over 900km to our trip. If only we knew fate still had another roll of the dice to play. ||

          Cổ phiếu của Boeing tiếp tục lao dốc sau làn sóng 'cấm cửa'      Cache   Translate Page      

Giá cổ phiếu của tập đoàn chế tạo máy bay Boeing tiếp tục lao dốc trong phiên ngày 12/3 sau khi ngày càng nhiều quốc gia và hãng hàng không trên thế giới đình chỉ khai thác dòng máy bay Boeing 737 Max.

Theo đó, giá cổ phiếu Boeing đã giảm 6,15% trong phiên 12/3, đóng cửa ở mức 375,41 USD/cổ phiếu. Tính đến hiện tại, cổ phiếu của nhà sản xuất máy bay này đã sụt giảm 11,15% chỉ trong vòng hai ngày.

Công ty dịch vụ tài chính Edward Jones có trụ sở tại bang Missouri (Mỹ) đã hạ xếp hạng cổ phiếu Boeing vào hôm thứ Hai, đồng thời cho rằng vụ tai nạn mới đây nhất liên quan đến dòng máy bay Boeing 737 Max có thể tác động mạnh đến lợi nhuận trong ngắn hạn của cổ phiếu này.

Dòng máy bay Boeing 737 Max vẫn đang phải hứng chịu làn sóng cấm khai thác từ một loạt các cơ quan quản lý hàng không và các hãng hàng không.

Mới đây, Cơ quan An toàn Hàng không châu Âu (EASA) ngày 12/3 đã công bố quyết định đình chỉ mọi hoạt động bay đối với 2 phiên bản máy bay Boeing 737 MAX 8 và Boeing 737 MAX 9 sau khi xảy ra hai vụ tai nạn máy bay thảm khốc liên quan đến mẫu máy bay Boeing 737 MAX 8 chỉ trong vòng 5 tháng.

Tuyên bố của EASA khẳng định tất cả các chuyến bay thương mại liên quan đến dòng Boeing 737 MAX trong không phận châu Âu sẽ bị đình chỉ.

Quyết định trên được đưa ra sau khi một loạt các cơ quan quản lý hàng không thuộc Trung Quốc, Indonesia, Hàn Quốc, Vương quốc Anh, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, Đức, Mexico, New Zealand, Italy... đều có động thái tương tự.

Nhiều hãng hàng không cũng quyết định dừng khai thác dòng máy bay 737 MAX như Ethiopian Airlines, Comair, Cayman Airways, Gol Airlines, Aeromexico, Aerolineas Argentinas... Một số quốc gia Nam Mỹ cũng tuyên bố đang đánh giá tình hình trước khi đưa ra quyết định đóng cửa không phận đối với phiên bản máy bay 737 MAX 8 của Boeing.

Tuy nhiên, Cơ quan Quản lý Hàng không Mỹ (FAA) tuyên bố không đình chỉ hoạt động của máy bay 737 MAX, cho rằng chưa có cơ sở chính xác để đưa ra quyết định trên nhưng sẽ yêu cầu nhà sản xuất chỉnh sửa thiết kế để cải tiến hệ thống điều khiển bay.

Bên cạnh đó, hãng hàng không của Mỹ gồm Southwest Airlines, American Airlines và United Airlines cũng đều bảy tỏ tin tưởng về đội bay của họ, dù các tiếp viên trên không và bộ phận dưới mặt đất của Southwest và American đều kêu gọi công ty tạm dừng khai thác dòng Boeing 737 Max cho đến khi vụ tai nạn ngày 10/3 có thêm thông tin.

Trong phiên 12/3, giá cổ phiếu của Southwest Airlines giảm 2,3% xuống quanh mức 50 USD. Giá cổ phiếu của American Airlines cũng để mất 3,5% xuống 30,92 USD vào cùng phiên này.

Chiếc Boeing 737 MAX 8 mang số hiệu ET 302 của hãng hàng không Ethiopian Airlines ngày 10/3 đang trên hành trình từ thủ đô Addis Ababa của Ethiopia đến thủ đô Nairobi của Kenya đã rơi chỉ 6 phút sau khi cất cánh từ sân bay quốc tế Bole ở thủ đô Addis Ababa, khiến toàn bộ 149 hành khách và 8 thành viên phi hành đoàn thiệt mạng.

Dù các nhà chức trách vẫn chưa xác định được chính xác nguyên nhân của vụ tai nạn thảm khốc trên, nhưng dư luận ngày càng lo ngại về sự an toàn của dòng máy bay 737 Max sau khi đã có hai vụ tai nạn liên quan đến dòng này xảy ra trong vòng chưa đầy nửa năm./.


          Teen Trick-Shot Sensation Jed Hockin Celebrates Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Award Nomination with Third Guinness World Records Title | Nick AU & NZ      Cache   Translate Page      
Official Nickelodeon Australia and New Zealand press release:

TEEN TRICK-SHOT SENSATION JED HOCKIN CELEBRATES NICKELODEON KIDS’ CHOICE AWARD NOMINATION WITH THIRD GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS TITLE


SYDNEY, 12 MARCH 2019 – Australian teen turned trick-shot sensation, Jed Hockin, celebrated news of his Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Award nomination by attempting to break his third Guinness World Records title.

Taking over Alan Davidson oval in Sydney, Jed, with his Nickelodeon cheer squad made up of SpongeBob SquarePants and Patrick, successfully broke the record for ‘Farthest distance to head a football (soccer ball) into a target’, recording a staggering 15.02M distance.

The talented 19-year-old, whose skill has caught the eye of football giants Real Madrid along with other superstar players and celebrities around the world, is now an icon for young Aussie kids, receiving a converted Nickelodeon Kids Choice Award nomination in the category of ‘Fave Aussie/Kiwi Content Creator’.

With the spotlight on him, Jed is using his nomination to encourage kids to have fun with sport and always dream big.


Jed comments, “Never would I have imagined that one day I would be standing here nominated for a Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Award and with three Guinness World Records titles to my name. Just as I think things can’t get any better there is another surprise, or in this case another broken record around the corner.”

He continues “Watching content others posted on YouTube was what initially inspired me to work on my trick-shots and eventually what drove me to start sharing my own content, so if I can return the favour and encourage kids around Australia and New Zealand to try out some new tricks that would be a dream come true.”

In January 2018 Read Madrid re-shared on of Jed’s Instagram videos to their 60M followers and the content went viral receiving over 2M views. Since then Jed’s social following has climbed from 36,000 to 190,000 with new fans including soccer stars Tim Cahill, Kalyn Ponga, Archie Thompson and Robbie Cornthwaite (to name a few).

Jed has previously achieved two Guinness World Records including, ‘Farthest goal scored by a rabona kick (60m)’ and ‘Most soccer ball crossbar hits by a rabona kick in one minute (7)’.

Doug Male, Head of PR, EMEA APAC, Guinness World Records, said “This is a great example of how Guinness World Records can inspire young kids and teenagers to take part in record-breaking. Jed is such a talented young person and we congratulate him on achieving his third Guinness World Records title.”







Kids around Australia and New Zealand can vote for Jed Hockin to win a Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Award at nick.com.au/KCA (voting closes 20th March) and can tune in to Nickelodeon on Monday 25th March at 5:30pm (AEST) to watch the awards unfold.

          Random Invertebrate Day #7      Cache   Translate Page      

Today's invertebrate pic is a photo I took way back in September 2008. This beetle was in the Ark in the Park, an exciting project in the Waitakere Ranges, near Auckland, New Zealand. A joint project between Forest and Bird, a local conservation group, and the Auckland Council, Ark in the Park uses intensive trapping and baiting to control invasive predators for the benefit of native species. 2008 was the last time I visited the park, and the forest was already loud with birdsong at the time. Since then the area of pest control has been increased, and there have been several reintroductions of endangered native birds. I look forward to visiting the Ark on my next visit to New Zealand, and seeing the progress that has been made.

As for the beetle, I'm not sure, but I think it is a member of the genus Stethaspis, in the family Scarabaeidae.

And now here are some gratuitous pictures of the great kauri trees and nikau palms in the Waitakere ranges.




          USWNT Files Lawsuit Against US Soccer for Gender Discrimination & World Cup Kits Revealed      Cache   Translate Page      
Lawsuit Against US Soccer



• Last week all 28 members of the USWNT filed a lawsuit against US Soccer alleging institutionalized gender discrimination.

• Players are seeking back pay and damages for any female player who's represented the United States at the senior national level since Feb. 2015.

• In 2016, five members of the USWNT at the time filed a wage discrimination action against US Soccer with the EEOC (ONTD Post). The complaint was never resolved, but the EEOC granted a right-to-sue letter to allow for a federal court filing.

• In 2017, USWNT & US Soccer agreed on a new collective bargaining agreement through 2021.

• Timing for the lawsuit was chosen not only to coincide with International Women's Day, but to capitalize on the attention on USWNT & US Soccer in the lead-up to the World Cup. US Soccer won't do anything to jeopardize the WNT's chances this summer so there's no threat of players being dropped from the squad in retribution and there will be a lot of discussion on equal pay, revenue produced, etc.

Its contents are compatible with any games that use the OGL system and can be inserted into them in whole or in part.  On this Mars, elegant city-states rise along the banks of world-spanning canals, luxurious airships ply the thin atmosphere, feisty princesses and feckless nobles are menaced by killers of the drear dried-up sea-beds, and skilled swordsmen defend dynasties that have ruled for aeons.

Moat Monsters: A Sourcebook for OGL RPGs
Regular price: $1.99
Bundle price:
 $0.54
Format:
 PDF
In most fantasy settings, castles and cities are vital components of civilization, and many of these rely on moats for defense. These large ditches are usually filled with water and meant to stop attackers from reaching the outer walls. Although this tactic was successful in real world history, traditional moats are not as effective in fantasy worlds because of the existence of magic. To counter this and thwart fantasy-world invaders, moats could be filled with different materials and energies, or even populated with monsters.  This sourcebook contains 20 monsters specifically designed to be ideal for occupying moats and enhancing their natural functions, along with ideas on other ways moats can be made more lethal first lines of defense for fortifications. Monsters in it are stat'...

New Golems of the Labyrinth
Regular price: $0.99
Bundle price:
 $0.27
Format:

Of all the creatures found guarding hoards of lost treasure, Golems — constructs created by powerful spell casters from specific sorts of materials — are among the most interesting and dangerous. Some might even constitute treasure in and of themselves.  Golems crafted from materials like clay, flesh, stone, iron, amber, bone, bronze, and wood are familiar to the players of OGL-based games, but they represent just a narrow glimpse of the possibilities for such creatures. This mini-sourcebook contains 10 new sorts of Golems, all of them are very different from the basic models and some of them pretty weird, that GMs may find useful in making their campaigns more interesting and unpredictable. They include the Cerebral, Ectoplasm, Flesh-and-Blood, Gas ...

Quantum Flux: Unique Superscience Artifacts
Regular price: $4.99
Bundle price:
 $1.34
Format:
 PDF
With his second law, that “any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic,” Arthur C. Clarke articulated a concept that could have been a shadowy undercurrent in the wider consciousness for centuries, possibly even millennia. All the items in this book were designed with two ideas in mind: they were created using Ancient technology so advanced that it seems like magic and they’ve gone through Hell since the apocalypse. Damaged, jury-rigged, infested with nanites and parasites, warped by energy, rebuilt by insane machines — these are the kinds of changes that make these artifacts dangerous, unpredictable, and, above all, unique. Quantum Flux contains 86 unique superscience artifacts suitable for use in any modern, sci-fi, or post-apoca...

Spontaneous Generation Monsters
Regular price: $1.99
Bundle price:
 $0.54
Format:
 PDF
Spontaneous generation, the idea that life can arise from non-living matter, is one of several obsolete biological concepts that can be used in fantasy games to provide a storyteller with more options for monster and setting design. This concept can include living creatures that, by modern definition, are not biological, such as those made of glass or metal. There are at least three forms of spontaneous generation and these are all covered in this mini-sourcebook. Happenstance due to magical laws is the first and the most similar to the historical definition of spontaneous generation. Alchemy is the use of natural laws to create creatures through spontaneous generation by mortals. Divine intervention involves creation of monsters when circumstances fit the requirements dictated by a god...

Updated Animal Familiars: An OGL Supplement Inspired by ‘The Noble Wild’ Animal Player’s Handbook
Regular price: $1.99
Bundle price:
 $0.54
Format:
 PDF
This booklet is dedicated to expanding the options for familiars available to arcane spellcasters like Sorcerors and Wizards and is inspired by a number of the concepts introduced in Skirmisher Publishing LLC’s ENnie-nominated The Noble Wild.

Some of the material in this publication was developed as addenda to The Noble Wild and some of it appears in the current edition of that book.

SIZING - if you need a size that is not listed, please contact me. because bead size can change the size of a anklet, my sizes are always the INSIDE circumference of the piece when clasped, NOT the unclasped length. you can determine the size you need by measuring the smallest part of your ankle and adding 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch depending on how loose you'd like it. for example, if your ankle measures 9 1/2 inches, you'd order a size 10. since this anklet has an extension chain, you'll be able to make it bigger, but not smaller. please ask if you need help determining size.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

the name for this wine-colored gemstone comes from the Latin granatus for “seed like” because of the stones resemblance to pomegranate seeds. this otherwise dull colored mineral only develops its sparkle when it's cut. since ancient times, garnets have been famous for their inner sparkle. the crown of the German emperor Otto was decorated with the most famous garnet of all, known as the "wise one". knights and warriors decorated their weapons and shields with garnets. according to legend, Noah suspended a finely cut, glowing garnet to illuminate the ark and steer it through the dark night. in Indian mythology, garnet is called the "kundalini fire" (fire of eternal metamorphosis). in Hinduism and Buddhism, it is seen as a holy stone that enlightens the soul and gives wisdom.

stunning displays of vibrant, iridescent colors make the Paua shell unique among the world's nearly 130 abalone varieties. Paua is only found around New Zealand coasts. it has long been believed that the many shimmering colors of the Paua shell balance and align the chakras of the human body, and some believe that the Paua shell aids in creativity.

the role played by silver in ancient civilizations is similar to that played by gold. until the eighteenth century silver was considered almost as valuable as gold. silver jewelry was produced as early as the fourth millennium B.C. Saxony was for a long time the main supplier of silver and it became very rich as a result. after the discovery of the Americas by the Europeans, so much silver was mined in the United States and Mexico that the price and the value attached to silver fell sharply. today the largest deposits of silver are found in Mexico, Australia and the former Soviet Union. silver is a precious metal, not a mineral.

->->-> for those who believe ;)

--- garnet ---
energy, vitality, willpower
January birthstone
star sign:
Pisces ~ garnet endows Pisces with will power, physical energy, success and good luck.
Aries ~ this gemstone increases self-confidence for Aries.
Leo ~ garnet strengthens Leo's will power and endurance.
Scorpio ~ garnet allows Scorpio to transform her emotional strength and sexual desire into true love.

-- Paua shell (abalone) --
balance, creativity

-- silver --
some believe that silver transmits and intensifies the power of healing stones, so that when they are set in silver they become even more powerful. turquoise and coral are examples. like gold, silver symbolizes wealth and prosperity. those prone to outbursts of anger and rudeness can be pacified by silver.

          Boeing 737 MAX 8: US Says 'no Basis' To Suspend Troubled Jet, But 45 Countries Disagree      Cache   Translate Page      

US aviation regulators said there was "no basis" to suspend flights of Boeing's 737 MAX jet after two fatal crashes that prompted several airlines and at least 45 countries to either ground the troubled aircraft or bar it from their airspace. "Thus far, our review shows no systemic performance issues and provides no basis to order grounding the aircraft. Nor have other civil aviation authorities provided data to us that would warrant action," the Federal Aviation Administration's acting administrator Daniel Elwell, said. The groundings come after an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 8 jet crashed on Sunday, six minutes after take-off, killing all 157 people on board, including seven Chinese nationals and one Hongkonger. On October 29 last year, another MAX jet flown by Indonesia's Lion Air crashed into the Java Sea, 12 minutes after take-off, killing all 189 passengers and crew. China's Boeing 737 MAX ban signals challenge to US power in civil aviation As of Wednesday morning Hong Kong time, at least the US, Canada, Panama, Thailand, Mauritania and Kazakhstan permitted airlines to fly the 737 MAX, for now. The United Arab Emirates and New Zealand on Wednesday joined the growing list of countries to ban the MAX jet from their airspace. That came after the European Union followed China's lead in grounding the US aircraft. Hong Kong remained one of the handful of jurisdictions in Asia that had not imposed restrictions on the aircraft. It is unclear if the Civil Aviation Department would change its mind on Wednesday. China's decision to ground Boeing 737 MAX 8 driven by safety concerns Indian airline SpiceJet flies the Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft between New Delhi and Hong Kong. However, flights have been suspended after India's aviation watchdog ordered a safety assessment of the aircraft. Russia's S7 Airlines, which flies the 737 MAX 8 between Novosibirsk and Hong Kong, was set to continue unless Russia also halted flights of the planes. Turkish Airlines, one of the largest carriers in the world, said it was suspending use of its 12 MAX aircraft from Wednesday, until "uncertainty" was clarified. Low-cost airline Norwegian Air Shuttle, South Korea's Eastar Jet and South Africa's Comair also said they would halt flights. The three US airlines using the 737 MAX - Southwest Airlines, American Airlines and United Airlines - stood by the aircraft, as calls from members of the US Congress to ban the Boeing 737 MAX from US airspace increased. Republicans Mitt Romney and Ted Cruz joined several Democratic lawmakers in advocating for restrictions similar to those imposed by a growing list of nations. US President Donald Trump also weighed in with a blistering tweet on Tuesday: "Airplanes are becoming far too complex to fly." "Pilot are no longer needed, but rather computer scientists from MIT," he wrote, referring to the prestigious university. Airplanes are becoming far too complex to fly. Pilots are no longer needed, but rather computer scientists from MIT. I see it all the time in many products.
