In the crypto world, Bitcoin continues to reign supreme.The largest digital asset is outperforming the next three biggest alternatives this year. It’s managed to hold above the key $10,000 level in the face of increasing headwinds. In times of recent market turbulence, it’s even taken on somewhat of a safe-haven accreditation.But technical indicators show the price action between Bitcoin and alternative tokens is nearing its highest correlation this year, indicating that a so-called alt season may be on the horizon. Alternative coin prices appear to be mimicking Bitcoin nearly one-to-one, with the highest correlation happening between Bitcoin and Ether, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Bitcoin slumps to two-week low on technical trading, market jitters Trade tensions and a weaker yuan drive Chinese crypto demand, market players say Bitcoin jumps closer to $9,000 — but some warn the rally is running too hot The correlation can be “attributed to the consolidation pattern we have seen in the crypto space,” said Ed Moya, chief market strategist at Oanda Corp. “Volatility has eased quite a bit over the past couple of weeks as regulatory concerns and future hurdles have somewhat eased.”Cryptocurrencies have rallied across the board this year thanks to expectations of greater institutional adoption and plans by Facebook Inc. to launch its own stablecoin. Bitcoin has gained about 175 per cent in 2019, outperforming tokens including Litecoin, up close to 150 per cent, and Bitcoin Cash, which has more than doubled. Ether has gained about 40 per cent in that period.Bitcoin’s outperformance can be tied to its overall dominance, which has increased to levels not seen since April 2017, according to Ryan Alfred, president of Digital Assets Data, a data platform. The trend could indicate a consolidation in the crypto space of money from alt coins flowing into Bitcoin. The correlation may be short-lived, he said.CoinCorner, a crypto exchange, is seeing a similar trend. More than 90 per cent of the company’s customer transactions are related to Bitcoin. Ethereum, Litecoin and Ripple make up about 7 per cent, said Danny Scott, the firm’s chief executive officer.“Altcoins are slowly dying out in respect of interest when compared to Bitcoin,” he said. “As always in this industry, it eventually comes back to Bitcoin.”Bloomberg.com
Ohio State redshirt senior outfielder Shea Murray stands in the box against Purdue on April 1, 2017 at Bill Davis Stadium. Credit: Edward Sutelan | Lantern reporterFacing off against a Northern Kentucky team that entered the game with a 12-22 record and against a pitcher with an ERA over 8.00, the Ohio State baseball team (15-22) found itself beat in all aspects across the board and dropped their third consecutive midweek game, 8-1.Losing three consecutive midweek games is always a rough stretch to go through for a team, especially when the unit combines for just three runs across those games.After the game coach Greg Beals, clearly frustrated with his team’s performance, had just one thing to say.“We got outplayed. We got beat,” Beals said.In most midweek games, a team will try to get as many players in the game as possible. But Beals said after the game that getting players ready for the weekend was not his intention.“Nope. Not at all,” Beals said.The opposing pitcher for the Norse jumpstarted his team’s offense in the bottom of the first. With a runner on first and two out, junior pitcher Trey Ganns crushed the first pitch he saw to the right-center field gap to score the runner and give his team the 1-0 lead. Later in the inning, Ganns himself would come around to score on an RBI single to make it a 2-0 ball game.The Buckeyes put a run up in the bottom of the second on a RBI groundout, but Ganns answered right back in the top half of the third with a moonshot to deep center field to give his team back its two-run lead.After the next batter struck out looking, junior second baseman Dominic Mercurio launched a solo shot of his own to left field, giving his team the 4-1 lead. A RBI double later in the inning pushed Northern Kentucky’s lead to 5-1.With a runner on second in the top half of the sixth inning, freshman left fielder Brendan Alas drove a double over the head of the right fielder, driving in the Norse’s sixth run.Ganns was not done with his all-around performance. In the top of the eighth inning with runners on first and second, he drilled a grounder just beyond the outstretched glove of the third baseman that rolled all the way to the left field corner, scoring both runners and bringing the score to 8-1.The Norse’s starting pitcher was a one-man wrecking crew for Northern Kentucky. On the bump, Ganns went five innings in his ninth start of the season, allowing just one run on three hits with a pair of strikeouts and no walks. His one run allowed was tied for the lowest allowed by any Northern Kentucky pitcher in a start this season.He was just as formidable at the plate, as he finished 3 for 5 with a home run, two doubles, two runs scored and four runs batted in. “He threw strikes with his fastball,” Beals said. “Pitched his fastball on both sides of the plate. Beat us for five innings with a fastball pretty much. Give him credit for being able to do that. Offensively, he’s aggressive. He ripped off swings at fastballs and hit fastballs when he got them.”The Buckeyes will host UNC Greensboro on Friday with first pitch scheduled for 6:35 p.m., desperately searching for a win and some confidence boosters before resuming conference play. Beals knows this is a crucial point in the season and these games ahead are going to be must-wins for the Buckeyes.“If they ain’t got it by this point — we’re 15-22 — if they ain’t got it figured out that they’ve got to play better,” Beals said. “Then I don’t know if I can help them.”
Amelia has been the most popular girls’ name in England and Wales since 2011 while Oliver has been in the top spot since 2013.However, this marks the first time Muhammad has been top in two areas, having overtaken Oliver as top name in the West Midlands from 2014.Four names – Jaxon, Roman, Reggie and Carter – broke into the boys’ top 100, taking the places of Owen, Robert, Joey and Finlay from 2014.Of these, Jaxon rose the most, climbing 35 places to number 80 while Kian fell 44 places to 98, the largest decline.There were six new entries in the girls’ top 100, these were Penelope, Mila, Clara, Arabella, Maddison and Aria. These replaced Lydia, Faith, Mollie, Brooke, Isabel and Amy from 2014.Of these, Aria showed the biggest ascent, shooting 70 places to claim the number 100 spot while Katie dropped the furthest – 22 places to number 99, just staying inside the top 100. There were 697,852 live births in England and Wales in 2015, with more than 27,000 different boys’ and 35,000 different girls’ names registered, the ONS said.The top 100 boys’ names accounted for 52% of all boys born in 2015, while the top 100 girls’ names accounted for 43% of all girls born in 2015.Half of the top 10 most popular boys’ names in 2015 had kept their place from a decade earlier in 2005: Oliver, Jack, Harry, William and Thomas. Daniel showed the biggest decline, having dropped 18 places since being in the top 10 a decade ago.Four out of the top 10 girls’ names in 2005 kept their place, these were Olivia, Emily, Ella and Jessica.Isla and Ava shot up 121 and 77 places respectively from their 2005 position to make it in to the 2015 top 10.Ellie has fallen 42 places in the rankings since being in the 2005 top 10 – the largest decrease in popularity for girls. Elizabeth McLaren, a statistician from the ONS, said: “Amelia and Oliver remained the most popular names for baby girls and boys born in 2015, having held the top spot since 2011 and 2013 respectively.”Ella re-entered the top 10 baby girls’ names in 2015 – Ella was last in the top 10 in 2007. Noah entered the top 10 baby boys’ names for the first time on record in 2015, following a gradual increase in popularity.”The statistics are “based on the exact spelling of the name given on the birth certificate; grouping names with similar pronunciation would change the rankings,” the ONS said. Compared with 2005, Oscar and Noah showed the biggest increase in popularity for those in the top 10 – rising 45 and 44 places respectively. Oliver and Amelia remained the most popular baby names in 2015 in all regions of England except London and the West Midlands where Muhammad was the top name. Ella and Mia rose into the top 10 girls’ names, replacing Lily and Sophie from 2014, while Noah replaced James in the top 10 boys’ names, the Office for National Statistics said.

NRW Holdings Ltd’s Action Drill & Blast subsidiary has announced new contracts at two of the biggest development projects in Australia.It has been awarded a 15-month extension by Talison Lithium for services at the Greenbushes mine, in Western Australia, which is currently in the process of going through an expansion to boost lithium carbonate equivalent production to more than 160,000 t/y.The contract extension is for blasthole drilling, grade control and blasting services and builds on the relationship from 2011 when the original contract was awarded. The contract, which incorporates an increased scope of works, has an estimated value of A$13.5 million ($9.6 million), according to NRW.The subsidiary has also been awarded a sub-contract for drill and blast services at the South Flank iron ore project, also in Western Australia, which is owned by BHP.The contract is valued at some A$11 million and will have a duration of eight months, NRW said.South Flank is a $3.6 billion development, involving construction of an 80 Mt/y crushing and screening plant, an overland conveyor system, stockyard and train loading facilities, procurement of new mining fleet and substantial mine development and pre-strip work. It is expected to result in first ore coming out from the new mine in 2021.

THE PROPOSED SALE of Coillte harvesting rights has come in for further criticism with a warning that it would lead to the closure of all ten of Ireland’s sawmills and the loss of as many as 2,500 jobs.In a report published today the Irish Timber Council (ITC), the representative body for the country’s sawmills, says that it “makes no sense” for the government to proceed with the sale of the harvesting rights on Coillte land.“We’re extremely worried that should this sale of the harvesting licence go ahead sawmills will be closed and jobs will be lost,” ITC chairman Pat Glennon told TheJournal.ie today. The government has committed to selling felling rights in order to raise money to pay off State debt and intends to publish legislation to aid the “development of a modern forestry sector” in the coming months.The ITC’s intervention is the latest to be critical of the plan. Last month, economist Peter Bacon said the government’s plan “no longer stands up and cannot be justified”.By coincidence, the Dáil will later today debate a motion put forward by independent TDs that demands the government abandon its plans to sell-off harvesting rights as well as accelerate tree planting to meet an EU-agreed target of 30 per cent forestation across the country.‘Totally dependent’The ITC says that the sawmill sector accounts for €2.2 billion of the economy annually and warns that selling off harvesting rights would see the purchaser export all of the available logs.Glennon said that the country’s ten sawmills are “totally dependent” on Coillte for its supply of raw material and pointed out that sawmills in Ireland already pay a premium for the material.“We’re paying 29 per cent more than mills in the UK so the government is extracting maximum amounts for harvesting rights anyway,” Glennon claimed, adding that “mills will definitely close and jobs will be lost” if the government pursues its plans.“All these jobs are in very rural, remote areas and the prospects of other employment coming in [to these areas] will be very remote,” he said this afternoon.Coillite owns 7 per cent of Ireland’s land – around 1.2 million acres – but has debts in the region of €180 million and any sale will require that some proceeds of the sale pay off this debt in addition to paying down the State’s debt.The government has committed to selling off some state assets in a bid to raise around €3 billion in order to meet the targets set down in the EU/IMF bailout agreement.‘Enforced sale’Earlier Glennon said in a statement: “Any purchaser of the harvesting rights is naturally going to take advantage of this and increase prices further in order to secure a quick return on their investment.“There is no room for sawmill operators to absorb any level of price increase and the consequence is that sawmills could close with important employment being lost in rural areas.”The ITC also claims in its report that the sale of harvesting rights would fall “well short of the mooted valuation of €400 million to €600 million”.The report concludes: “This is an enforced sale with few if any net proven benefits to the Irish economy, the general taxpayers and certainly of no obvious benefit to the forestry or the sawmill sectors.The report says that if the government does proceed with the sale then provisions must be put in place to protect the supply to Irish sawmills.Glennon told TheJournal.ie that he recognised the need for the government to raise funds but said that the coalition should not be “penny-wise and pound-foolish”. More forestation would in time “provide a better source of income to the government long-term”, he claimed.More: Sale of Irish forest ‘cannot be justified’ on economic groundsRead: Coillte exports reach ‘record number’ of countries in 2012Explainer: Which State assets are being considered for sale?

I have never regretted forgetting to photograph a monitor more. Samsung Samsung’s CRG5 isn’t the first 240Hz 1080p monitor, the first G-Sync-compatible model or the first 27-inch curved, but it might be the first with all of those, with a VA panel instead of TN to boot. The $400 monitor debuted at this year’s E3 gaming show and is slated to ship in July. (Directly converted, its price is about £315 and AU$575.)As a reminder, G-Sync Compatible means that a display has Nvidia-approved adaptive-refresh quality — think of it as a top-tier of AMD FreeSync 2 monitors — but since it doesn’t require extra G-Sync hardware in the monitor, it can be much cheaper. Samsung has long been a major FreeSync partner for AMD.The high 240Hz refresh rate delivers smoother gameplay — it really did when I tried it — plus a broader latitude for synchronizing with your frame rates and thus avoid artifacts like tearing. That too, looked good.

PNB Housing Finance, whose Rs 3,000-crore initial public offering (IPO) was oversubscribed almost 30 times, will keep investors on the tenterhooks, given that ICICI Prudential Life Insurance also saw 10 times oversubscription but listed at a discount on September 29.

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires New York Jets running back Chris Johnson warms up before an NFL football game between the Jets and the Tennessee Titans Sunday, Dec. 14, 2014, in Nashville, Tenn. (AP Photo/Mark Zaleski) Comments Share Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact “You can ask coach that,” he said, with a laugh. “But for the most part we have so many weapons, it’s going to be a fun season.” – / 45 Oh, he also brings career totals of 8,628 yards and 51 touchdowns on the ground along with 296 catches for 2,154 yards and nine touchdowns via the air.Ellington, who is still expected to be the Cardinals’ No. 1 running back, has no problem with the team bringing the veteran into the fold.“I’m excited, man,” he said. “As many players as we can get in here to help us win a championship, I’m all for it.“He’s a legend; he’s a guy I can learn a lot from, so I’m looking forward to it.”It is unknown what kind of role Johnson, who will turn 30 in September, figures to have. However, it’s not unreasonable to assume he will receive a fair amount of touches as he tries to rebuild his value in the desert. What that means for Ellington or the other Johnson, a third-round pick from Northern Iowa, remains to be seen.But the rookie, who got back on the practice field in a limited role Monday for the first time in nearly two weeks following a hamstring injury, said the signing of the former Titan and Jet is a good thing.“I can learn from him, hopefully, when he comes,” he said. “He’s a great back and hopefully I can learn something.” GLENDALE, Ariz. — As the saying goes, while two is company, three’s a crowd.Unless you’re a member of the Arizona Cardinals’ backfield, apparently.Monday afternoon word came out that the Cardinals had signed free agent running back Chris Johnson to a one-year deal. A three-time Pro Bowler who was with the New York Jets last season, Johnson adds experience to an otherwise young group of running backs that was set to be led by third-year pro Andre Ellington and rookie David Johnson. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Johnson added he doesn’t feel threatened by the move because he hasn’t even been on the field to show what he can do.And therein lies what is likely the main reason the team went out and signed Johnson.Earlier Monday, before the team had officially signed the back, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians told Bickley and Marotta on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM that Chris Johnson is, “one of those guys, every time he touches [it] you hold your breath. He could take it to the house.”In 2009, Johnson paced the NFL with 2,006 rushing yards, and he topped the 1,000-yard mark in each of his first six NFL seasons before slumping last season with the Jets.Few are expecting him to be that kind of player again, but if nothing else he presents another weapon for the team to deploy. It wasn’t that long ago when Johnson was viewed as one of the best runners in the NFL, someone the dynamic Ellington said he patterned his game after.“I studied his game a lot coming up, coming through high school and college,” he said. “He’s a guy that can go get it. I learned a lot from his skill set and I’m glad to have him on my team.”Johnson figures to be at training camp Tuesday beginning to work with his new team. From that point, it will be about figuring out everyone’s role and how best to utilize all the talent the team seems to have on the offensive side of the ball. It’s a good problem to have — if it is indeed a problem — but when asked if there will be enough plays to keep everyone happy on offense, Ellington smiled.

Seamless reinvention: Celine Dion reborn with an exuberant foray into high fashion Celine Dion attends The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute benefit gala celebrating the opening of the Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garvßons: Art of the In-Between exhibition on Monday, May 1, 2017, in New York. Many celebrities walked the 2017 Met Gala carpet earlier this year in outlandish styles, but only Celine Dion used the moment to propel her transformation into a fashion maven. THE CANADIAN PRESS/AP, Evan Agostini/Invision by David Friend, The Canadian Press Posted Dec 21, 2017 3:00 am PDT Last Updated Dec 21, 2017 at 9:20 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – Many celebrities walked the 2017 Met Gala carpet earlier this year in outlandish styles, but only Celine Dion used the moment to propel her transformation into a fashion maven.While she’s been the queen of Quebecois music for decades, the “My Heart Will Go On” powerhouse strutted onto the New York fashion scene in May with surprising confidence and swagger. Dressed in an Atelier Versace gown, she mugged with hip hop trio Migos and slinked like a lioness across the floor for Vogue’s popular Instagram “photo booth.”She also yanked off her high heel and pretended to use it as a phone. Everything she did pulsated with vibrancy — and a touch of silliness — at an event where attendees often take themselves too seriously.Not long afterwards, some voices in the fashion industry started proclaiming 2017 as “the year of Celine Dion,” as the Met photos went viral and sent gossip pages into a tizzy.The Met Gala also proved the 49-year-old performer wasn’t defeated by the events of 2016, an emotionally draining year that saw her lose both husband and manager Rene Angelil as well as her brother Daniel to cancer — within the course of a week.The deaths left a void in her life but also convinced Dion to forge ahead, suggests Alison Eastwood, editor-in-chief at Hello Canada.“She’s really wanted to pour her heart and soul … into something she’s passionate about — and that is fashion,” Eastwood says.“It’s part of her re-emergence as an independent woman.”Searching for inspiration in the world of haute couture — the glamorous looks that grace runways — isn’t entirely foreign to Dion. In recent years, she slipped into designer threads as part of her flashy Las Vegas residency at Caesars Palace.But getting credit as a fashion influencer was mostly new territory for the singer in 2017.Years ago, Dion was better known for her clothing missteps, like the backwards pantsuit she wore to the Oscars in 1999 which divided critics. Other clothing choices were less inspired and sometimes called safe and undistinguished.It wasn’t until the performer strolled onto the streets of Paris in the summer of 2016 that heads really started to turn. Her outfit that made a statement: a Vetements hoodie bearing images from the 1997 blockbuster “Titanic,” coupled with distressed jeans and Gucci sandals.“It was hailed by many as her official debut in the world of fashion or certainly current fashion,” Eastwood says.The concept was imagined by Law Roach, the “image architect” who has played a key role in helping Dion enter the fashion world. As the story goes, Dion first noticed Roach’s styling on young actress Zendaya Coleman, who was stealing attention on awards show red carpets.Roach ran into Dion at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards and they hit it off instantly. Within a couple of days, the pair was collaborating on big ideas, like putting her into the now famous hoodie.“I had it for a while but I didn’t show it to her because I thought she would think it was corny,” Roach says, adding Dion was instantly attracted to the kitsch and insisted on wearing it immediately.“As the days went on I started to introduce her to new brands … and one day I mustered up the courage and showed it to her.”By 2017, the partnership between Roach and Dion had really clicked. Many of the choices seemed purposefully tuned to elevating a particular moment.Her performance of “My Heart Will Go On” at this year’s Billboard Music Awards was paired with a white Stephane Rolland gown that towered over the singer’s shoulders, subtly evoking both angel wings and the towering scale of an iceberg.Other looks were more playful and motivated fashion magazines to document her every move as she stepped out at Parisian hotels draped in show-stopping designs.Dion ignited chatter by wearing a white Ralph & Russo cape and matching pantsuit topped with a wide-brimmed hat, and she also won praises for coupling a Dice Kayek blouse detailed with a giant black bow with high-waisted pants and Tom Ford heels.Many of the looks were coupled with handbags from the “Celine Dion” branded collection she began selling this summer.Afiya Francisco, a Toronto-based style expert, compliments Roach for enhancing Dion’s fashion sense.“It showed that she was adventurous,” she says. “If you don’t have the attitude sometimes that can really fall flat.”The singer has described her foray into haute couture as a source of joy after the death of her husband. She’s also credited Roach with inspiring her creativity.“To me, that was the ultimate payoff, to have such a small part in the healing,” says Roach.“She was with Rene for so long and loved him so much that she will never ever not mourn (him). But the fact she credited (our work) in Paris that summer as part of the healing process was so overwhelming to me.”Roach says Dion’s vast knowledge of the industry often astounds him.“She’s also a bit of a fashion historian,” he says.“The things she can reference and pull up. She’s like, ‘Give me a minute, I know I have it.’ And she’ll go through like books of tear sheets (from old magazines)…. She knows what she wants and what she likes, but she’s also very open to learning new things.”Dion’s move into the fashion industry could also give her pop music career a boost. It’s been rumoured she could release new English-language material in 2018.Eastwood rebuffs suggestions that Dion has simply been trying to stoke buzz for a new album and her fashion lines. She says after interviewing the singer a number of times, she’s confident Dion is simply tapping into another outlet for her own happiness.“I can guarantee you that she couldn’t care less personally about making an impact on social media,” she says.“It doesn’t feel like she’s trying too hard…. It may have a different audience paying attention to what she’s doing now, (but) that’s the power fashion and style has.”Eastwood also predicts that Dion is only getting started with her grand aspirations and could surprise the world by stepping onto a catwalk during Milan Fashion Week in February.Whatever is next for Dion, Francisco expects her style choices will continue to work in her favour in the coming months.“Fashion, nowadays, absolutely has the ability to define a career … it’s really important and part of the package,” she says.“If a new album were to drop, she has everybody’s attention already.”Follow @dfriend on Twitter.
