U.S. Media Refuses to Inform the Public When Its Commentators and Pundits are Paid Foreign Agents

Much of the American public despises mainstream corporate media, but rather than engage in some self-reflection and admit failure they just complain about Trump. It’s critical we recognize that mass media in the U.S. is very much part of the very same discredited establishment it’s supposed to report on, thus its response to justified criticism is likewise establishment-esque. Blame the readers, blame Trump, blame anyone but themselves.

Adopting different management styles to generate investment returns

The process of investment management can take various forms, with the more traditional type taking either an active or passive approach in an attempt to generating investment returns. The passive approach generally consists of the process of mirroring the constituents of a reference benchmark with equal weightings and asset holdings. A typical example of passive investment strategies include Index funds and Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs). It comes as no surprise that most investors tend to have an inclination towards maximum yielding returns, and in fact, there exists a large number of funds which essentially take on active investment management strategies which essentially cater for such demands. Investment managers who are active in their day-to- day management styles, tend to seek to generate value added returns in excess to returns on a reference benchmark, a term better known as alpha. Key ratios that fund managers usually use in assessing the active value added risk in a portfolio include the information ratio and the Sharpe ratio. The information ratio is a means of assessing the mean active risk return per unit of active risk. Put simply, it measures the ability of a...

Documentary on electronic music

The documentary film Conny Plank: The Potential of Noise – presented by Electronic Music Malta, in collaboration with Spazju Kreattiv and the German-Maltese Circle – will be screened tomorrow at the Spazju Kreattiv cinema at St James Cavalier, Valletta from 7.30 to 9.30pm. Konrad ‘Conny’ Plank was one of the most innovative sound designers and music producers of his time. He was a pioneer of krautrock and a trailblazer of electronic pop music. Bands and artists such as NEU!, Brian Eno, David Bowie, Ultravox and Eurythmics recorded with him; even now they stress the influence he had on their music. Conny died at the age of 47. Twenty-five years later, his son Stephan along with co-director Reto Caduff, went in search of the man who as a boy he had often seen only behind the mixing console and produced this documentary about Conny’s life and relationship with acts which helped shape electronic music as we know it today. The screening will be preceded by a discussion and vinyl listening session. Tickets are available from www.kreattivita.org.

Watch: Rooney inspires DC United into the MLS playoffs

Wayne Rooney scored two goals and assisted another as his DC United side won 3-1 against New York City FC to secure their Major League Soccer playoff place, capping a remarkable turnaround since the striker joined in June. When the former England captain was unveiled as DC United’s marquee signing this year, they were bottom of the MLS Eastern Conference with two wins in 14 matches and had been eliminated from the U.S. Open Cup. However, 12 goals and seven assists in 19 appearances from the former Everton and Manchester United man has helped DC United climb up the standings to fifth and reach the playoffs with one game of the regular season to spare. The team are now unbeaten since the end of August and have won their last five matches. «Playoff spot secured. Proud of this team!» Rooney posted on Twitter on Monday along with a picture of the squad after the win over NYCFC. «He's a great player, very easy to play with. He makes everything easier,» fellow DC United forward Luciano Acosta said. DC United's next match is a trip to Chicago Fire, with the possibility of third place in the Eastern Conference up for grabs should they win. Such a finish would ensure home advantage in the...

First cycle of IVF treatment under new law to start on Thursday

The first batch of patients to go through IVF under the terms of the new legislative regime will start their treatments on Thursday. The information was given by Health Minister Chris Fearne, responding to a parliamentary question by MP Silvio Grixti. The new law came into effect last June, after considerable controversy. Government MPs voted for the Bill but the Opposition – who were given a free vote – were all against it. It only got to that stage after a Constitutional application, protests by pro-life groups, and even a last-minute attempt by 500 doctors who were against the freezing on multiple embryos. Even after Parliament approved the Bill, President Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca made it clear that she was only signing it into law out of «out of loyalty» to the Constitution. The amendments made to the law enable same-sex couples and single parents to access IVF treatment, but plans to introduce altruistic surrogacy were dropped. Dr Fearne said that once the law had been enacted, a protocol had been drawn up by the Embryo Protection Authority, which was presented to the parliamentary health committee, which had in turn approved it unanimously.
