OAKLAND – The NBA acted swiftly. But did the NBA act appropriately?The NBA punished Warriors investor Mark Stevens with a one-year ban from NBA games and Warriors-related activities and a $500,000 fine Thursday. The penalty was handed down roughly 16 hours after an incident in Game 3 of the NBA Finals in which Stevens, from his courtside seat at Oracle Arena, shoved and swore at Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry.Some, including Lowry, thought Stevens’ actions warranted a lifetime ban.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Overall the report was not a huge shocker. No big price movement took place at noon. USDA estimated corn production at 13.555 billion bushels, last month it was 13.585 billion bushels. The corn yield came in at 168 bushels, compared to 167.5 last month. That is a bit bearish. Traders were expecting the corn yield to be reduced. Corn ending stocks were 1.561 billion bushels, last month they were 1.592 billion bushels. Corn acres were down as expected. Soybean production was pegged at 3.888 billion bushels while at 3.935 billion bushels last month. The soybean yield was 47.2 bushels per acre, last month it was 47.1 bushels per acre. Soybean ending stocks were 425 million bushels, down 25 million bushels from last last month. Soybean acres were cut 1.1 million acres. No surprises there. Traders the last several months have paid strong attention to soybean ending stocks. Two months ago they had expected ending stocks to drop below 370 million bushels. Instead they came out at 470 million bushels, resulting in November CBOT soybeans down 61 cents that report day.Prior to the report corn was down 1 cent, soybeans down 8 cents, with wheat unchanged. Shortly after the report came out corn was down 3 cents, soybeans up 6 cents, and wheat was down 1 cent. Corn was down 8 cents at one time but quickly recovered.Many were looking for this report to be more volatile and price changing than the September report. It will have plenty to watch for producers and traders alike. The computers will be reading the headlines. Price changes for corn and soybeans could be 5 to 20 cents in a few minutes as at least three different numbers will be closely watched. They would include yield, production, and ending stocks. The computers will be reading the headlines only, hence the rapid fire price changes both up and down in only a few minutes. Traders and analysts will be looking at all of the numbers for each crop in its totality. Computers cannot do that. The September report did provide some price changes, especially with corn up 12 cents that day. However, the report was quickly dismissed. With this report both USDA and NASS have many more actual field samples of harvested crops upon which to base their projections. In addition, FSA acre numbers will also be part of the equation for total corn and soybean production. The report today detailed corn and soybean production, ending stocks, and demand. Traders were looking for corn yields to decline while soybean yields are expected to increase. Those expected changes from traders are very small, less than half a bushel per acre for both corn and soybeans. Ending stocks for corn and soybeans are expected to be lowered across the board for corn, soybeans, and wheat. One other factor receiving minor press will be actual corn and soybean acres. Many are expecting soybean acres to decline at least a million acres. This accounts for traders’ expectations for reduced soybean production and ending stocks in spite of higher yield estimates. Corn and soybean harvest continues to advance across Ohio and the Midwest. Ohio’s farmers have been aggressively harvesting soybeans the past three weeks. Rains in central Ohio prevented soybean harvest for many one to two days this week. Western Ohio did not receive the rains seen in other parts of Ohio. Those light rains have western Ohio wanting more rain in order to get wheat planted up and going strong before winter sets in. This week’s harvest report on Monday put the U.S. corn harvest at 27% for the US, 32% had been expected. US soybean harvest was 42%, 35% had been expected.Lines at Ohio’s grain elevators continue to be all over the place. It obviously is a function of time and space. At times very few trucks are on the lot. Time it wrong and the wait could be hours to dump one truck. Those with home storage but not enough due to higher than expected yields have been able to move bushels to town now rather than waiting till the last 25% of harvest. Reports indicate China is trying to sell corn out of their reserves. The government’s instructions are to move it and not lose money. Two factors indicate that will be a very difficult objective to achieve. First the corn reserves are in the north, corn demand is in the south. Second, the corn in reserves is of very poor quality. China earlier this year has been a buyer of corn from Ukraine while buying sorghum from the U.S. Look for U.S. sorghum exports to China falling off sharply in coming months. Harvest weather looks to be very favorable for Ohio and the Midwest as the six to 10 day forecast is showing normal to above normal temperatures and normal rainfall. The farmer sell rate and harvest progress will be the main factors for grains during the month of October. Corn and soybean acres for 2015 were lowered about as expected.

How Connected Communities Can Bolster Your Busi… Surveillance at the Heart of Smart Cities Tags:#financing#India#IoT#Muni Bonds#Port Authority of NY and NJ#Smart Cities Related Posts For Self-Driving Systems, Infrastructure and In… While enthusiasm for smart city initiatives is not hard to find in India, project financing is. But a U.S.-style municipal bond market could be the solution.In an article on The Wire, two economists argue that smart city plans in India desperately need to develop sources of private financing to become reality.“One predominant feature of ULBs (urban local bodies) in India has been the lacklustre flow of private capital,” said Shamika Ravi and Ankit Bhatia from Brookings India and is a Research Assistant at Brookings India. “The improvement of smart cities in India, however, will essentially hinge on the ability of those cities to improve their own revenue, raise local finance and attract greater private investment.”The researchers say that as India’s cities explore ways to fund the myriad smart city projects on the drawing board, municipal bonds offer a major source of both financing and citizen participation.“Currently, India’s municipal bond market is largely untapped,” they say. “Because of severe constraints in both supply and demand, only a limited number of ULBs have the experience of raising funds through municipal bonds.”However, in order to increase smart city infrastructure financing and deepen the Indian muni bond market, several key reforms of the existing legal framework are needed.The researchers say Indian lawmakers should explore the regulations around the U.S. municipal bond market that enable it to remain such a strong source of infrastructure funding.“The federalist Indian government can learn from the US and its highly advanced municipal bond market,” they said. “India’s ability to replicate the US general obligation bond model will largely depend on the ensuing capacity of local governments to pay their obligations with a good track record.”US revenue bonds an especially good model?In particular they say that India should examine the potential of revenue bonds which have proven so popular in America. They cite examples of revenue bonds issued by regional bodies like the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and the Bay Area Toll Authority.Ultimately they say that municipal governments need diversify beyond the public purse and more vigorously explore private partnerships.“Indian urban areas can no longer rely solely on public capital flows. Increased private sector engagement via public private partnerships, should be a paramount goal,” they say. “This requires a more active and coordinated leadership in project management, technical guidance and risk mitigation across different levels of the government.”As well, they recommend Indian municipalities develop standardized review periods, predictable permitting processes and more dependable sources of information for project tracking.This comes as Indian officials have recently been pushing greater smart city collaboration among BRICS nations.

Hayward was injured in the season opener on Tuesday against the Cleveland Cavaliers. (AP Photo/Charles Krupa)BOSTON — Celtics forward Gordon Hayward sent a video message from his hospital bed before the team’s home opener on Wednesday night, telling Boston fans: “It’s hurting me that I can’t be there.”The crowd at the TD Garden for the Celtics’ game against the Milwaukee Bucks cheered when Marcus Smart directed fans’ attention to the scoreboard, where Hayward appeared wearing a hospital gown and sitting up in bed. The arena hushed to hear the brief message, then erupted in another cheer when it was over.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Stevens said doctors confirmed that Hayward has a dislocated left ankle and broken tibia. Surgery will be necessary but it hadn’t been scheduled, Stevens said. Hayward was expected to make a full recovery, but the coach did not know if it would be this season.“It’s definitely been tough,” said rookie forward Jayson Tatum. “We’re just keeping Gordon in our prayers, hoping everything is all right.”Fans who never got to see Hayward in a Celtics uniform lined up before Wednesday night’s game to sign a banner imploring him to get better and “come back stronger than ever” from the injury. Other fans held up hand-made signs wishing him well.Celtics forward Daniel Theis wrote “GH20” on his shoe, and a fair number of Hayward’s No. 20 jerseys were visible in the crowd, which began chanting his name late in the first half.After playing his first seven years with the Utah Jazz, Hayward signed a four-year, $128 million contract this offseason to rejoin Stevens in Boston — part of a near-complete roster overhaul for the team that finished first in the Eastern Conference last season.ADVERTISEMENT US gymnastics gold medalist reveals abuse by team doctor Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Frontrow holds fun run to raise funds for young cancer patients LATEST STORIES Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH BSP sees higher prices in November, but expects stronger peso, low rice costs to put up fight Nonong Araneta re-elected as PFF president The team also traded fan favorite Isaiah Thomas to Cleveland for fellow All-Star Kyrie Irving and shipped out regular starters Avery Bradley and Jae Crowder.

The Galaxy Note 10 is the next anticipated flagship from Samsung and there have been numerous reports on the upcoming series already. This time around, Samsung is tipped to launch two models – Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10 Pro – that will differ in screen sizes and possibly 5G support for the Pro model. Now, some alleged Galaxy Note 10 Pro case images have surfaced on the internet that seem to back what we have heard about the design already.The supposed Galaxy Note 10 Pro silicone case images posted by a Twitter user show off a rectangular design with sharp corners, which is what Samsung’s Note phones typically offer. There are a lot of cutouts of various sizes that are meant for ports and sensor. The bottom side of the case offers cutouts for the S Pen, speaker, Type-C port and microphone. The top side sees two cutouts which is said to be for microphone and IR blaster.#Samsung #GalaxyNote10Pro real life case leaked. pic.twitter.com/Ia9X0PUt2rSudhanshu Ambhore (@Sudhanshu1414) June 15, 2019If the cutouts are what they seem, this would suggest that the Galaxy Note 10 series will not come with a headphone jack as past rumours would suggest. This would be an interesting move considering the Galaxy S10 series retains the headphone jack. We are still leaning or rather hoping for the headphone jack to remain on the Galaxy Note 10, so one should take these case images with a pinch of salt for now.The vertical triple camera cutout on the back of the case is a major indication that Samsung will ideed change the placement of the cameras. The triple camera setup is said to include regular, ultra wide-angle and telephoto cameras. A smaller cutout can be seen next to the camera cutout, which could house an LED flash, heart rate sensor and possibly a ToF camera.advertisementBased on what past rumours have told us, the regular Galaxy Note 10 will offer a 6.4-inch Dynamic AMOLED display, while the Galaxy Note 10 Pro will sport a bigger 6.7-inch screen. The Pro model will also house a larger 4,170mAh battery and will come with up to 12GB of RAM.

That letter and an official Board discussion of the Fund’s potential paradigm shift generated a “Decision Point” released late yesterday (PDF) — it’s the Board decision on the proposal to expand its mandate. The Decision Point makes it clear that the Global Fund wants to see more proposals that incorporate MNCH interventions but those interventions must fall within the framework of projects that address HIV/AIDS, TB, and Malaria. The proverbial genie is out of the bottle — no doubt that the advocacy will continue while the Fund develops a new 5 year strategy (2011-16). We’ll keep tracking this important evolution of the one of the world’s most innovative and, some would say, successful multi-lateral health funding mechanisms.Share this:
