The financial crisis of 2008 was about AAA securities and the market believing that they posed no risk, the financial crisis of 2009 was the acceptance that a euro zone sovereign was a euro zone risk, and that didn’t turn about to be right. So there’s always something out there that I always think that we need to take a different look at to see what might be the next issue he said. Staley suggested that a break of liquidity in a particular credit market is often the trigger to serious global financial trouble, but said the banks are in a stronger position than ever in terms of capital and liquidity, meaning they are unlikely to be at the epicenter this time around. Getting this whole issue of liquidity and risk fine-tuned, given the amount of sovereign and corporate debt that’s out there — the stakes are high he added. In a note Thursday, Algebris Head of Macro Strategies Alberto Gallo also said that banks are more resilient this time around, but highlighted that leverage has grown across corporate balance sheets. Many investment funds have bought into the same trades, some reaching for yield in less liquid assets he explained.
Policymakers are increasingly concerned about long-term fundamentals across corporates and certain emerging market sovereigns. They admit global manufacturing is in recession: the fear is a potential spill-over to other sectors. Voters in South America’s second-largest country will head to the ballot box on Sunday, less than three months after a dress rehearsal for the vote set off a shockwave in financial markets. It is widely expected that Argentina’s President Mauricio Macri will be defeated by the opposition ticket of center-left Alberto Fernandez and populist ex-leader Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner. The first round of the presidential election comes as the country is facing a debt crunch, with the worst rout of the country’s stock market in decades raising fears of a possible default. The latest opinions polls indicate that Fernandez could beat the center-right incumbent by almost 20 percentage points on Sunday. That would almost certainly be enough to win the presidency outright. Argentine law states that to win the presidency in the first round of the election a candidate must reach 45% of the vote, with a margin of victory of 10 percentage points over their nearest rival. Even if the incumbent managed to progress to the second round, it would be very, very, very difficult for Macri to recover and win the election, Carlos de Sousa, senior economist for Latin America at Oxford Economics, told CNBC via telephone. The economy is only getting worse. People are getting angrier and angrier and most Argentines are blaming Macri for this.
Economic turmoil In early August, the primary — seen by many as a key gauge for the first round of Argentina’s presidential election — produced a result which many interpreted as a clear signal that voters were ready to reject the ruling government’s austere economic policies. Fernandez received 47.8% of the vote on August 11, with Macri taking 31.8%. It has cast serious doubt over the president’s chances of making it to a second-round run-off vote in late November. The center-right president came to power four years ago promising that his pro-market reforms and business-friendly leadership style would finally rid the country of endless economic turmoil. But, Macri now appears likely to leave office with the economy in a worse state than it was when he inherited it. During the past two days, the Astros pro-actively assisted Major League Baseball in interviewing Astros employees as part of MLB’s investigation of the events published in the recent Sports Illustrated article. Major League Baseball also separately interviewed members of the media over the past 24 hours. Our initial investigation led us to believe that Brandon Taubman’s inappropriate comments were not directed toward any reporter. We were wrong. We sincerely apologize to Stephanie Apstein, Sports Illustrated and to all individuals who witnessed this incident or were offended by the inappropriate conduct. The Astros in no way intended to minimize the issues related to domestic violence. Our initial belief was based on witness statements about the incident. Subsequent interviews have revealed that Taubman’s inappropriate comments were, in fact, directed toward one or more reporters. Accordingly we have terminated Brandon Taubman’s employment with the Houston Astros. His conduct does not reflect the values of our organization and we believe this is the most appropriate course of action. We are thankful to Major League Baseball and to everyone that cooperated in the investigation. As previously stated, the Astros are very committed to using our voice to create awareness and support on the issue of domestic violence. We fully support MLB and baseball’s stance and values regarding domestic violence. We will continue to make this cause a priority for our organization. Basketball Hall of Fame player Shaquille O’Neal lent his support to Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey, who ignited an international clash with China earlier this month when he tweeted support for anti-government protests in Hong Kong. O’Neal, who didn’t say whether he agreed with Morey, said he was right to speak out.
Daryl Morey was right. Whenever you see something wrong going on anywhere in the world, you should have the right to say, ‘That’s not right.’ And that’s what he did. But again, sometimes in business you have to tiptoe around things, O’Neal, a former NBA center, said Tuesday night. They understand our values, we understand their values. And here, we have the right to speak, especially with social media. We’re going to say whatever we want to say whenever we want to say it, said O’Neal, who was speaking on TNT’s pregame show before NBA opened its regular season with a game between the Toronto Raptors and New Orleans Pelicans. Morey’s now-deleted Oct. 4 tweet: Fight for Freedom. Stand With Hong Kong has caused a rift between China and the NBA as executives publicly support Morey’s protected right to free speech in America. Chinese state television declined to show Tuesday’s openers, which also featured the Los Angeles Lakers against the Clippers, according to ESPN. The Walt Disney-owned network’s media partner, Tencent, which owns the digital streaming rights for the NBA in China, also limited the number of broadcasts shown in the preseason. Last week, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver admitted that the league suffered substantial financial losses as the rift intensified. The NBA’s salary cap also could suffer if the losses continue, two league executives told CNBC. I don’t know where we go from here, Silver said at an event hosted by Time magazine in New York. The financial consequences have been and may continue to be fairly dramatic. Silver said Chinese officials asked the NBA league to fire Morey, a point Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang denied, according to Reuters. O’Neal, 47, said if people can’t comprehend what the United States values are regarding free speech, that’s something they have to deal with. We as American people, we do a lot of business in China, and they know and understand our values, and we understand their values. And one of our best values here in America is free speech, O’Neal said. We’ re allowed to say what we want to say, and we’re allowed to speak up about injustices, and that’s just how it goes. And if people don’t understand that, that’s just something they have to deal with it.
Pipkin rabbit, a free range rabbit sleeping. When the indoor rabbit sleeps, the rabbit dreams of eating. Pipkin rabbit eats, runs, and jumps in his dream, and his sleeping body does the same. After the indoor rabbit falls asleep, we prank the rabbit by surrounding him with carrots. Domestic rabbits love eating carrots. After the rabbit smells the carrots he wakes right up!
Maybe you saw our waking a sleeping rabbit with an air horn video, or waking a sleeping rabbit with a firecracker video. Or maybe you saw rabbit eating watermelon or rabbit eating carrot, or rabbit learns he is adopted. This is the same tiny pet bunny rabbit!
When the rabbit discovers he is surrounded by carrots, the rabbit wakes up and begins to eat the carrots. What is a pet rabbit's favorite food? Banana of course! But carrots are another of the rabbit's favorite foods! Can rabbits eat carrots? Yes! Like all foods though, except the rabbit's beloved hay, moderation is key, and all rabbits are different, so read up on rabbit diets or please talk to your vet.
The rabbit enjoys making prank videos and rabbit eating ASMR videos. Waking a sleeping rabbit by surrounding him with carrots was a fun video to do, and the rabbit loved waking up to carrots. Pipkin is a tiny pet bunny rabbit who loves waking up humans. So, every once in awhile, we wake him up. The rabbit has been woken with a rabbit air horn and a rabbit firecracker. We've even made a rabbit video of rabbit learns he's adopted. When the rabbit is sleeping he often dreams of eating something, or doing one of his rabbit eating ASMR videos. When the rabbit eats in his dream, he sleeps soundly, and it takes more effort to get the rabbit to wake up. Here the rabbit is fast asleep, until he smells the banana!
Again, don't worry that we woke up the sleeping rabbit with this prank. The rabbit takes about 20 naps a day, and the rabbit wakes up at the quietest opening of the refrigerator door. Pipkin is always ready to make a rabbit eating ASMR video - so even when he is asleep, he is vigilant for sounds someone might feed him, as the rabbit loves eating fresh fruits and vegetables!
When the rabbit is sleeping and dreaming, you can hear the rabbit smacking his lips and licking his lips. Watching him and listening to the rabbit sleep can be very calming. The sounds the cute rabbit makes can be relaxing, too.
The rabbit sleeps out in the open usually. However, later at night, or for an afternoon nap, he likes to cuddle on the couch. Oftentimes he falls into the REM sleep, where he dreams and moves about. He is a free range rabbit, or free roam rabbit, and he has free range of the house. Maybe that's why the rabbit always likes to sleep out in the open, in the middle of the room or under the futon. Ha! Silly rabbit!
We labeled it "ASMR" in case some viewers would enjoy the eating sounds he makes when sleeping, then when the rabbit is awake eating the carrot. We certainly think his rabbit sounds and rabbit noises could be considered relaxing. What is ASMR? ASMR stands for autonomous sensory meridian response and is used to describe an experience characterized by a static-like or tingling sensation on the skin that typically begins on the scalp and moves down the back of the neck and upper spine. In short, it' that feeling of getting "the chills." Maybe his squishy and crunchy eating will trigger you to feel it, who knows? Or maybe he will just put you right to sleep. Or, maybe you just wonder what a bunny eating looks like :) Whatever the reason, thanks for stopping by!
If you'd like to hear the rabbit eat something more crunchy, he recently did a rabbit eating carrot video. If you want to hear some juicy eating sounds that are relaxing, he recently made a rabbit eating watermelon video. The rabbit has also eaten apple, strawberry, lettuce, kale, parsley, grapes, baby food and juice! However, if you're wondering what is a rabbit's favorite food? It's a banana, for sure! We hope you like the sounds of a rabbit eating!
Everyone seems to think the rabbit looks like the singer Jungkook. Jungkook is the youngest member of South-Korean Kpop group BTS. The rabbit thanks you for your kind words!
Thanks for checking out Pipkin and our rabbit channel. We hope you think he is the cutest rabbit ever, because he really enjoys making rabbit videos - ASMR videos and eating videos in particular! Pipkin rabbit is a free range rabbit / indoor rabbit and we all enjoy making cute rabbit videos. If you'd like to see more cute rabbit videos, please watch some of our other work!
