Swiss franc surges to a record high against euro

first_imgWednesday 25 August 2010 8:40 pm whatsapp Show Comments ▼ THE Swiss franc surged to an all-time high against the euro yesterday as fears over the potential for a double-dip recession continued to drive investors into perceived safe-haven assets. The franc traded at €1.300 yesterday, within sight of the record level of €1.2968 hit earlier in the session. And yields on 10-year Swiss bonds fell to 1.02 per cent as weaker-than-expected US new-home sales and durable goods orders intensified the flight out of equity markets.The franc’s rise accelerated after the Swiss National Bank dropped its pledge to intervene in the currency markets at its June meeting, saying that deflation risks had largely disappeared and the economy was on track for a healthy recovery.The Dow Jones was off as much as 103 points at one stage, before rallying to close up 19.6 points – or 0.2 per cent – at 10,060, while the broader S&P 500 index gained 0.3 per cent, ending four straight days of losses. The FTSE 100 index closed 0.9 per cent down at 5,109.40, Germany’s DAX fell 0.6 per cent and Tokyo’ Nikkei dropped 1.7 per cent to hit a 16-month low of 8845.39.

The trio of Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer, and Jos Buttler were instrumental in England’s World Cup-winning campaign in 2019. They are all potential match-winners in their own right and one of RR’s biggest strengths.Furthermore, Ben Stokes is possibly the most complete all-rounder in the entire world and can win matches both with the bat and ball. On the other hand, it was Jos Buttler who turned things around for the team in the last season with a string of half-centuries. He is expected to star at the top of the order this season and don the gloves as well.Although his credentials are not that celebrated in T20Is, Steve Smith remains one of the foremost batsmen in limited-overs cricket. Moreover, if the team decides to entrust the captaincy with him, it will further give a boost to the side as Smith has a pretty good idea of marshalling the troops.Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2020: Young Indian coreThe franchise has excellent depth and balance of players to do the job. Of course there would be presence of quality foreign players like Jos Buttler, Steve Smith and David Miller, but the core of the team lies in its youngsters, who would be looking to make a mark for themselves. Yashaswi Jaiswal, Riyan Parag and Kartik Tyagi — all products of U-19 World Cups, would look to perform to the best of their abilities and win some matches for their side.IPL 2020 RR WeaknessRajasthan Royals in IPL 2020: Getting the right combination would be a challengeWith ₹ 28.9 crores in their kitty, Rajasthan Royals had a busy auction and roped in as many as 11 players. Some of the biggest buys are experienced campaigner Robin Uthappa, Tom Curran, David Miller, and Andrew Tye. Jaydev Unadkat and Oshane Thomas were also bought back. Apart from these, an interesting buy for the inaugural IPL champions is 17-year-old Yashasvi Jaiswal, who was roped in for a massive ₹ 2.40 crores. That was some auction for the Rajasthan Royals!With so many new additions in the side, getting the combination right early on would be a difficult task for the Royals. It is always good to have multiple players in the team who have played together for a few years at least. Shuffling the team so much however can backfire for Rajasthan.IPL 2020 CSK Strengths Football Rajasthan Royals vs Chennai Super Kings (RR vs CSK) key PlayersRajasthan Royals key Players of 2020 Cricket Rajasthan Royals (RR)Total Games wonRajasthan Royals (RR) – 7Total Games lost Rajasthan Royals (RR)– 14Total Games TieRajasthan Royals (RR) – 0Chennai Super Kings (CSK)Total Games won Chennai Super Kings (CSK)– 14Total Games  lost Chennai Super Kings (CSK)–  7Total Games Tie Chennai Super Kings (CSK)– 0 CSK probable XIMurali Vijay, Shane Watson, Francois Du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Sam Curran, Piyush Chawla, Deepak Chahar, Lungi Ngidi PSL 2021 Playoffs: Schedule, Timing, LIVE streaming, list of champions; all you need to know Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2020: Best spin attack (without Harbhajan Singh)Perhaps the most telling factor in CSK’s success over the years in the IPL has been their spin attack, and this year’s squad is no different.CSK have unmatched versatility and experience in their spin attack, which comprises of Ravindra Jadeja, Karn Sharma, Piyush Chawla, Imran Tahir, Mitchell Santner and R Sai Kishore, apart from the part-time option of Kedar Jadhav.With pitches in the UAE low and slow, these spinners can wreak havoc like they have done so many times in the past.Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2020: Most experienced sideAn aspect of the squad that has been critiqued is the average age. While it is justified to claim that CSK aren’t building for the future, it would be foolhardy to not recognise the impetus and value that the team’s 30+ players bring.With an experience of playing in all conditions and situations, CSK’s “Daddies Army” will perhaps turn out to be their biggest strength in the unprecedented times that IPL 2020 is taking place in. IPL 2020 CSK WeaknessesChennai Super Kings in IPL 2020: Morale affected by recent eventsWith the sudden departure of Raina & Harbhajan and the positive tests of over 10 members of the support staff, CSK’s morale might not be very high at the moment. The team has been widely criticised by all corners of the cricketing fraternity for deciding to conduct a pre-season camp at Chepauk, which is believed to be the cause of the infection.CSK might not be directly and visibly impacted by this, but at some level, this is sure to cause a tinge of worry among fans of the team.Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2020: Fielding an issue for CSKThe biggest reason why the age factor has been under a spotlight is fielding. The fielding, which could cost them 15-20 runs each time, has further been worsened by Raina’s departure.RR probable XIYashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson, Steven Smith, David Miller, Robin Uthappa, Manan Vohra, Andrew Tye, Shreyas Gopal, Mayank Markande, Jaydev Unadkat, Jofra Archer Head to Head  History: Rajasthan Royals vs Chennai Super Kings (RR vs CSK) Year up to 2020 Cricket Euro 2020, Switzerland vs Turkey LIVE: Must-win game for both teams, Kickoff at 9.30PM IST; Follow Live Updates YourBump15 Actors That Hollywood Banned For LifeYourBump|SponsoredSponsoredUndoDefinitionTime Was Not Kind To These 28 CelebritiesDefinition|SponsoredSponsoredUndoPost FunThese Twins Were Named “Most Beautiful In The World,” Wait Until You See Them TodayPost Fun|SponsoredSponsoredUndoMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity Week|SponsoredSponsoredUndoDefinitionMost Embarrassing Mistakes Ever Made In HistoryDefinition|SponsoredSponsoredUndoDaily FunnyFemale Athlete Fails You Can’t Look Away FromDaily Funny|SponsoredSponsoredUndo PL 2020: Where will IPL 2020 be held?IPL 2020 will take place in the UAE, starting from September 19 with the finale being played on November 10. IPL 2020: Where can you watch RR vs CSK Live score?While Star Sports have the exclusive streaming rights, you can follow all the IPL 2020 RR vs CSK ball by ball updates on Insidesport.IPL 2020: When will IPL 2020 in UAE be Started? – DateIPL 2020 will start from September 19 to November 10 IPL 2020: When will the IPL 2020 final be Played?IPL 2020 final will be played on November 10IPL 2020: What Time IPL 2020 RR vs CSK matches Will begin?

On 77th birthday, U Win Tin demands respect for his rights as detainee in Insein prison

first_img Follow the news on Myanmar to go further Help by sharing this information May 12, 2021 Find out more U Win Tin, winner of the Reporters Without Borders press freedom prize in 2006, celebrates his 77th birthday today in Insein prison, where he has been held for nearly 18 years. Although the authorities had promised himearly release, the head of the prison service told him four days ago it was not possible because he has not “worked” while in prison. RSF_en Burma’s most famous journalist, U Win Tin, is spending his 77th birthday today in his special cell in Rangoon’s notorious Insein prison. He marked the occasion by issuing a rare call for resistance against the military regime that has imprisoned him since July 1989. He told a friend who is allowed to visit him: “All political prisoners must be freed and the democratic parliament must meet. We must not abandon these demands.”Reporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association said: “The inhumanity of this military junta, which has imprisoned a sick, 77-year-old man for nearly 18 years, needs no further proof. By refusing U Win Tin the right to early release, the regime breaks its own laws and promises. We call for him to be freed at once.”When the director general of the prison service, accompanied by the prison governor, visited U Win Tin on 8 March, the journalist insisted on his rights as a political prisoner. “I am not going to beg you to free me. It is my right to be freed because I have served 18 years of my 20-year sentence and I qualify for early release.” The prison governor claimed that he did not qualify because he had not worked while in prison. U Win Tin replied that, as a political prisoner, he could not be made to work while in prison. The director general said he was not sufficiently familiar with his case and would ask his superiors.In the past, the prison authorities had promised the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) that U Win Tin would be released early and that his sentence would not be extended.>From his cell, U Win Tin, winner of the 2006 Reporters Without Borders award, also defended the “Suu – Hlut – Twe” platform, consisting of the release of Aung San Suu Kyi and all political prisoners (Suu), the meeting of the parliament that was elected in 1990 (Hlut), and political dialogue (Twe). “My vision, my opinions and my principles have not changed,” he said, calling on pro-democracy activists to resist repression.Since his arrest on 4 July 1989, U Win Tin, who is serving a 20-year sentence on charges including “anti-government propaganda”, has been deprived of his basic rights, including proper medical treatment and being able to write.U Win Tin needs treatment for high blood pressure and inflammation of the prostate. Even though he is checked twice a month by a prison doctor, he is dependent on the help of his relatives who regularly bring him medication and food. His health has seriously deteriorated after 18 years in prison and he has suffered two heart attacks.

G20 summit : gesture needed from Saudis to recover place on international stage

In RSF’s view, this cannot happen without a significant prior gesture – the release of all the professional and non-professional journalists currently held arbitrarily in Saudi Arabia. According to the latest information gathered by RSF, they are at least 30, which makes the country one of the world’s biggest jailers of journalists.RSF noted that the university academic and journalist Hatoon Al-Fassi was released provisionally in May, on the eve of Ramadan. Shortly before that, Eman Al-Nafjan, a women’s rights activist who blogged as Saudi Woman, was released provisionally in March.Part of a group of 11 women who were the victims of an unprecedented wave of arrests a year ago, they were accused inter alia of “suspicious contacts with foreign entities” because of their links with foreign media, diplomats and human rights groups. Both of these journalists were on RSF lists that were passed directly to the Saudi authorities.“By taking on the G20 presidency, Saudi Arabia would be placing itself under the world’s most powerful diplomatic and media spotlights, and we think it would not have the legitimacy to assume this role when dozens of journalists are still detained nine months after Jamal Khashoggi’s gruesome murder by Saudi agents,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said.“The international community cannot offer Saudi Arabia the political benefits of the G20 presidency without a major gesture after the Istanbul tragedy. We urge Riyadh to face up to its responsibilities by withdrawing all charges against the 30 arbitrarily detained journalists, and we urge all of the other G20 member countries to intervene to this end.”Saudi Arabia is ranked 172nd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019World Press Freedom Index.

Eminence Capital Releases Investor Presentation on Grossly Inadequate Offer Resulting From Highly Manipulated Pluralsight…

first_imgLocal NewsBusiness Facebook Eminence Capital Releases Investor Presentation on Grossly Inadequate Offer Resulting From Highly Manipulated Pluralsight Sales Process Pinterest Twitter By Digital AIM Web Support – February 8, 2021 WhatsApp NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 8, 2021– Eminence Capital, LP (“Eminence”), the beneficial owner of approximately 6 million shares of Class A Common Stock of Pluralsight, Inc. (“Pluralsight” or the “Company”) (NYSE: PS), representing approximately 4.85% of the Company’s outstanding shares, today released a detailed presentation to Pluralsight shareholders. The presentation highlights what Eminence believes is a grossly inadequate offer from Vista Equity Partners (“Vista”) to acquire Pluralsight resulting from a highly manipulated sales process. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210208005848/en/ The presentation is available at: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/52375595/en. Ricky Sandler, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer, said, “We believe Pluralsight’s rushed, highly manipulated and conflicted sales process resulted in the Company accepting an offer that fails to compensate shareholders for current performance or future value. The Board’s acceptance of a virtually no premium offer deprives shareholders of the value that will be created by the Company as it disrupts the enterprise education system over the coming years. It is deeply troubling and an affront to all current shareholders. We strongly urge shareholders to resoundingly reject the transaction.” Eminence encourages all Pluralsight shareholders to “VOTE NO” by voting proxies for the Special Meeting scheduled for March 2 “AGAINST” the Vista transaction. Important Information Eminence Capital, LP (“Eminence”) and Ricky C.
