This one exhibits many of the same traits seen at tops in 1966, 1987, 2000 and 2007. Here in no particular order are some of those traits.Social mood is wildly optimistic. Indeed sentiment indicators set new records not seen in decades. And when the President of the United States touts the stock market in the State of the Union message, that is not a buy but a sell signal. When the stock market becomes front page news in non-financial publications a top or bottom is usually at hand.Markets take on a parabolic look as the indexes go vertical. Extreme expressions of social mood occur near the end of a trend. This explains the vertical ascent of Bitcoin as well as the major indexes. The Dow Industrials gained 1,000 in a record seven days recently. Now the index has set a record in the other direction losing over one thousand points in one day.Fools rush in. Discount brokers saw new account openings swell some 40% in 2017. That was the 8th year of the move up from 2009. The ‘Fear of Missing Out,’ ‘FOMO’ causes new, inexperienced ‘investors’ to rush in at the wrong time. The same thing was seen in developing markets like China.This column, Friday February 2 2018 (Began Tuesday Feb 6, amid Pre Market Trading)We have consistently warned that the Dow Industrials DJIA were some 4,000 points above its widely watched 200 day moving average. Even with a 250 point sell-off this morning the DJIA is 3,500 points over its 200 day MA.Investors focus on a particular group of stocks believing the trend will last forever.1929 – Yes tech stocks then led by Radio Corporation of America RCA1960s – The Nifty Fifty2000 – Dot.com Mania2007 – Housing Boom, Mortgages2017– Facebook, Apple, Netflix, Google, PricelineJason Zweig in the Wall Street Journal muses that no one knows the reason for these sudden reversals. Yet an accountant named Ralph Nelson Elliott in the 1930s proposed a framework that answers just that question. Elliott made the case that social mood drives markets in a three steps forward, two steps back fashion. This pattern exists in smaller and larger fractals. But once the largest fractals have completed the patter, the markets reverse. This is likely the case now.Fundamental analysts like Mr. Zweig dismiss the idea of cycles but they are present in nature (four seasons) as well as human nature.Short term, we should have a corrective move up beginning Tuesday. Indeed that occurred this afternoon (the previous sentence was written this morning) at the low of 23,778. The market closed at 24,912. This fourth wave should extend to the area of 25,400-25,500. This will falsely restore some short term confidence. Look for a ‘whew, glad that is over,’ mentality to set in. This should occur by Thursday if not late Wednesday.That high should be followed by a final fifth wave down by the end of the week or early next week. After that, expect a spirited move up in A, up B, down C, up fashion. If that move fails to take out the previous highs at 26,600, the bull market from 2009 is likely over.Next update this weekend, in the mean time check out: http://www.themarketperspective.com.

He spoke about how Americans need to work together to reach their full potential of prosperity.“This is America. This used to be known as the can-do society, not the what-can-you-do-for-me society,” he said. “And there is a lot that we can do if we are simply willing to reach outside of ourselves and recognize that each person, all our fellow Americans, we are one.”At one point during Carson’s speech come up with an acronym “THINK BIG.” “T is for talent, which God gave to every person,” he began, assigning word phrases H for honest, I for Insight, N for Nice, K for Knowledge, B for Book, I for Indepth Learning, and G for God. Carson then asked those in attendance to raise their hands to “take the niceness pledge.”“Just raise your hand, everybody raise your hand,” he said, as the staff obeyed. “Now what did you just pledge to do? Be nice to every single person you encounter for one week, including your spouse!”An audience member asked Dr. Carson: “ What are your plans for the division of housing and equal opportunity overall, and how do you plan on furthering civil rights while you are here at HUD?”Dr. Carson’s answer was not direct, though he used the opportunity to address inequality and fairness for all.“I am going to do be doing what you are and that is watching to see what people are doing and more importantly listen to what people have to say,” Dr. Carson said. “There’s always a lot of different perspectives and one of the things that I have found is when you have divergent perspectives, if you can get those people to sit down and talk to each other, they will frequently be able to come up with extremely good solutions,” he said. “I believe in always giving the first pass to the people who are actually involved as opposed to imposing upon them from above.”“One of the things you will notice in this department under my leadership is that there will be a very big emphasis on fairness for everybody,” Carson told the staff. “Everything that we do, every policy; no favorites for anybody, no extra for anybody, but complete fairness for everybody. Because that is what the founders of this nation had in mind, and if you read the Constitution, it becomes very clear that that was the goal.”He would later briefly talk about find alternative ways to work with the private sector to find solutions homelessness and affordable housing availability.“We don’t necessarily have to always depend on the government and government financing,” he said when asked about such partnerships by a staffer during the question-and-answer session. “There’s a lot more money outside of government than there is inside of government, although there’s some people who would like to change that, but anyway, I won’t get into that.”At the end of the town hall meeting, one staffer stood up and thanked Carson for his speech, telling him that her and follow employees had been afraid about how the Trump administration would select HUD programs. She said his speech had reassured her that he is invested in HUD’s mission.

C. Sharma, observing that when “the child was permitted to go to his mother”, he “started playing with the mother”. “He was very happy with his mother and this Court really fails to understand as to how an observation has been made that in case the child goes with the mother, it will affect the child emotionally and mentally. He is a minor child of very tender age and he is happy with his mother”, opined the Single Judge. The present Writ Petition arose out of the order dated 06.01.2020 passed by the Principal Judge, Mandsaur, by which, the Presiding Officer in a case under the Hindu Minority & Guardianship Act, 1956, while considering the application under Section 12 of the Act, has granted the custody of the minor child to his father. The High Court was moved on 14.01.2020. Notices were issued in the matter, however, on account of lockdown, the matter was not heard. Finally, the matter was taken up through video conferencing on 25.06.2020 and this Court has directed the father to keep the child present. In the order delivered on Monday, the Single Bench recorded that the order dated 06.01.2020 passed by the Principal Judge reveals that for the last six months, the child was residing with his father, grandfather and grandmother and after discussing various judgments of the Supreme Court, the Presiding Officer has observed that at this stage if the child is separated from his father, it might adversely affect the mental status of the child. “Except for making such casual observations, no details have been looked into, especially the statutory provision as contained under Section 6 of the Hindu Minority & Guardianship Act, 1956”, noted the Single Judge. Justice Sharma proceeded to iterate that while “it is true that welfare of the child is of paramount importance keeping in view Section 17 (2) of the Guardian & Ward Act, 1890”, however, “the Court is bound to take a decision after taking into account the age, sex, religion and other factors also”. In the present case, the Court appreciated that it is dealing with the custody of a minor child, where the wife is also from a well off family, she is able to maintain herself and “it is nobody’s case that the wife doesn’t have the income to look after the child”. “As the child is happy with the mother, keeping in view the statutory provisions governing the field, the mother is granted the custody of the child”, directed the High Court.

The University is also directed to promote the petitioner to the fourth year Undergraduate Programme for the Academic Year 2020-21, by condoning the shortage of attendance if any and subject to the result of ‘Special Repeat Examinations’; the respondents shall also permit the petitioner to submit the Project Assignments and undergo VIVA VOCE, as well. Singh had challenged the email communication dated July 31 issued to him by the University. In its response the University justified its action. It was stated that as per the Academic and Examination Regulations, 2009, (AER 2009) of the University a student having the failure in more than one subject, ordinarily cannot seek refuge under the shadow of this Regulation. However, the bench said “The conduct of the University shows that the restriction as to number of subjects, has been treated only as directory and admittedly, a few students who had multiple failures have been permitted to take up Special Repeat Examinations; that being the position, there is no reason to discriminate the petitioner by trying to place a strict construction on the subject Regulation, when it admits a purposive one.” Referring to notifications dated 04.09.2017 and 10.09.2020 issued by the University, court said “These two notifications not only show that the University treated the subject Regulation as being only directory but also stretched its meaning to benefit the “poor performers” who otherwise would not fit into the furrow of its text. After all, in a country like ours, if poverty is not a sin, being poor in intelligence too cannot be. Denial of opportunity that was made available to others similarly circumstanced, would be discriminatory & arbitrary; it offends sense of justice and causes to the aggrieved a heart-burn.” Discarding the preliminary objection of delay in filing the petition raised to the petition by the University, the bench said “When the writ petition is filed within about two months or so, of detention; during the eventful period the COVID-19 pandemic was rampant everywhere and the judiciary was treating the issue of delay & laches more leniently, also cannot be lost sight of; after all, there is no statutorily fixed limitation period for availing the writ remedy, and there cannot be one.” The University had also contended that the AER 2020 being at place now, petitioner cannot bank upon AER 2009. To which the court said “The right that has accrued to a student under AER 2009 cannot be silenced in the absence of a specific intent in the subsequent Regulations.” It added “No provision in the 1986 Act (National Law School of India University Act) has been shown which empowers the respondent-university to frame delegated legislations of the kind, with retrospective effect; apparently, the text of the new Regulations shows that they have prospective effect, consistent with the conventional presumption; the contention that these new Regulations have been promulgated after notifying the students at their formative stage, is a poor solace, bereft of legal content & efficacy.” Allowing the petition the court clarified that “The above relief having been granted to the petitioner in the special circumstances of the case, is not intended to be a precedent.” Case Details: AAKASH DEEP SINGH And NATIONAL LAW SCHOOL OF INDIA UNIVERSITY, Case No: (WRIT PETITION NO.11287 OF 2020) Date: 2ND DAY OF NOVEMBER, 2020 Coram: JUSTICE KRISHNA S.DIXIT Appearance: Advocate PRATEEK RATH for petitioner & Advocate ADITYA NARAYAN for R1 and R2Click Here To Downoad Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more

The campaign will also appear in print and on the radio.The TV ads, which were commissioned by YOPA’s Chief Marketing Officer Gav Thompson (pictured, right), were created by London agency Lucky Generals, while the previous Village People ads were created by Publicis.“Yopa plans to disrupt the world of estate agency, so our brand deserves some great, disruptive, brand-building advertising,” says Gav Thompson who before joining YOPA worked with Lucky Generals on campaigns for betting firm Paddy Power and drinks firm CIC, which owns Bulmers Cider and Tenants Lager.“It is perhaps no surprise I have turned to my old comrades, Lucky Generals, who have a proven track record of delivering the goods for me when I need something exceptional.” Home » News » YOPA ditches Village People for surreal testimonial TV ads previous nextYOPA ditches Village People for surreal testimonial TV adsAfter a year of using ageing ‘Young man’ pop stars, online estate agent switches to bizarre comedy to promote its offering.Nigel Lewis13th September 201703,528 Viewslast_img read more
