English Bulldogs have one of the most distinctive appearances of any dog ​​breed. But UK vets are now advising people to stop buying the breed due to specific health issues.

A recent study published by the royal veterinary college warned about how “urgent action is needed to reduce many of the serious English Bulldog health problems associated with exaggerated characteristics”.

The same study concluded that English Bulldogs are more than twice as likely to develop health problems and conditions as other dogs.

Part of the problem with English Bulldogs is that they are a flat-faced breed – known as “brachycephalic”. This can increase their likelihood of continuing to suffer from health problems.

Why are English Bulldogs more at risk than other breeds?

Digging into the Royal Veterinarian College study explains exactly what’s going on with English Bulldogs and why vets are trying to discourage people from buying the breed.

The study compared just over 2,500 English Bulldogs to over 20,000 other breeds. Researchers found that English Bulldogs were more than twice as likely to develop medical issues.

Some of the more common medical conditions English Bulldogs seem to develop include:

  • cherry eye
  • Lower jaw problems
  • Dermatitis problems around skin folds
  • Airway obstruction

In an effort to help safeguard the future of the English Bulldog breed, the study made the following recommendation:

“It is hoped that the results of this research will discourage the breeding and purchase of animals with extreme conformations and instead promote a move towards public acceptance of a more moderate conformation with improved natural (innate) health. “

Problems with Buying Brachycephalic Breeds

In addition to an increased risk of developing health problems, other issues can arise when someone purchases an English Bulldog or other brachycephalic breeds.

Some of the key issues are:

  • Brachycephalic breeds end up in shelters when their humans cannot handle health issues.
  • Buying dogs supports irresponsible breeders. Remember it’s always best to adopt, don’t shop around!
  • Brachycephalic breeds may have low exercise requirements; however, they still need a commitment to getting enough exercise to avoid canine obesity.

ATHENS — Stealing internet signals and streaming services and buying counterfeit goods on the streets and elsewhere is so common in Greece that most people admit to doing it, adding to the country’s notorious reputation for theft of intellectual property, mainly among young people.

Some 62% of Greeks between the ages of 15 and 24 – an age group particularly savvy when it comes to the use of computers, mobile phones and other devices – said in a survey by the Office of the Union European Union for Intellectual Property (EUIPO) that they were stealing signals or buying counterfeit products.

The results, said Kathimerini, revealed that this was well above the EU average of 37% among young people who deliberately buy counterfeit goods that are easily obtainable almost anywhere.

Even that, however, was far higher than the finding of just 14% who admitted to doing so in the bloc before the COVID-19 pandemic hit in 2020 and radically changed people’s shopping habits. people.

Some 52% of young Europeans surveyed have purchased at least one counterfeit product online in the past year, intentionally or accidentally, and 33% have accessed illegal content online, according to the newspaper.

Greece – at 25% compared to the EU average of 21% – had the highest rate among the 27 member states for pirated content with no reports of major prosecutions for it.

In Manhattan, sellers have had the upper hand since late 2020. In Brooklyn, sellers have had the advantage even longer. However, the past few weeks have seen a noticeable slowdown in contract signings in both boroughs.

There are a myriad of potential reasons that could be happening. For starters, it could be due to the post-pandemic low-rate “sugar rush” for real estate. Or maybe because many of the city’s shoppers have already decamped to the Catskills or the Hamptons. Or it could be that the volatility in stocks, bonds and crypto simply dampened the mood. Finally, buyers might just be worried about the growing risk of recession. Either way, there are plenty of reasons why buyers prefer caution to action.

Yet, while there may not be a single reason behind the drop in activity, one thing is clear: this summer, a long-awaited window of opportunity will likely open up for buyers. To be clear, this is not a price call. Rather, it is an overview of how changing market conditions may alter supply and demand dynamics to favor buyers in the months ahead.

NYC Real Estate is behind the markets

A comparison of New York real estate with various other types of markets suggests that even though major stock indices, such as the S&P 500 and NASDAQ, have fallen significantly, the volume of New York City real estate transactions has not yet followed suit.

Indeed, the chart below shows that while most markets are already down sharply, trading volume in New York is still near its highs. Of course, just because the markets have gone down doesn’t mean New York real estate will follow suit. On the contrary, the broad decline paints a picture of buyer and seller sentiment. Falling asset prices tend to interrupt buyers and slow the market. A slower market means less competition for buyers, leading to wider gaps between supply and demand. Wider gaps indicate that the lack of inventory is no longer the asset it was six months ago. Instead, sellers must compete on price or risk staying in the market longer than expected, or even withdrawing their listings.

Supply vs demand

Supply in Manhattan and Brooklyn is starting to grow, albeit slowly, as demand begins to fade. As this trend continues, the bid/offer ratio (the “Market Pulse”) will continue to fall from levels consistent with a seller’s market.

While the Market Pulse has been in seller’s market territory since the end of 2020, at the current pace, it will most likely slip into neutral market territory by mid-summer. Of course, since this is an aggregate measure, there will be pockets of comparative strength and weakness. Still, the balance of power appears to be shifting between buyers and sellers, just as the market heads into the typically slow summer season.

Notice to sellers: sales are slow

Prices follow trading volume, so a slowdown in the market today suggests that prices likely peaked in the first quarter. However, since recorded sales data can take months to become public information, the final tally will not be known until the third or fourth quarter of 2022. With advance knowledge of a work slowdown, sellers should concentrate on working to negotiate now before a wider knowledge of prices is known. It is better to give up a few percentage points on price now than to linger in the market and give up several percentage points later.

window of opportunity

The short to medium term outlook for real estate in New York is murky at best. After a record volume of transactions, buyers appear exhausted and ready not only for a seasonally slow summer break, but also for a break from the bidding wars constrained by supply and intense competition.

At the same time, with various economic indicators significantly lower, the overall shopping landscape looks bumpier than it did six months ago. Sellers have no doubt noticed the slowdown in open house attendance and overall buyer engagement, and may finally be open to negotiation.

However, this may be a short-lived opportunity. Sellers tend to pull listings when their price is not met, and if that is the case, buyers will again find themselves short of supply. So the next few months could offer both choice and negotiation for less rate-sensitive buyers.

Conclusions on the buyer side

To take advantage of this window of opportunity, buyers should prepare by understanding their local market inventory, knowing their financing plan, and identifying potential candidates. Don’t ignore outdated properties that may be trying to find the market via previously unsuccessful price cuts. These sellers will be the most emotionally affected by the slowdown in demand and more likely to hire a lower bid to sell the venue as quickly as possible.

Finally, as seasonality returns to the market, buyers should remember that demand will likely pick up in early fall. Therefore, the slow and hot summer months could be the biggest window of opportunity for short-term buyers.

POUGHKEEPSIE – The Poughkeepsie City School District (PCSD) is considering the purchase of a non-denominational church for office and student activities.

The District School Board (BOE) is set to discuss the $1.8 million purchase of Changepoint Church at the corner of Mill Street and Civic Center Plaza at the BOE workshop meeting in Wednesday evening.

District spokesman Irwin Goldberg said discussion plans began in “spring 2022.” Located at 260 Mill Street, the church has a fully functioning theater/meeting space with modern audio-visual capabilities. The theater has been used for many public events, including Poughkeepsie Mayor Rob Rolison’s “state of the city” speeches.

According to Goldberg, “The Poughkeepsie City School District has several plans for the space. The space will primarily be used to house district central office functions, school board meetings, and community functions. As part of the The district’s ongoing investment in arts education, the facility will also be used to expand opportunities for PCSD K-12 students, including performance spaces and student learning.

Funding to buy, according to the PCSD, comes from a capital reserve fund that was developed with an insurance payment for the 11 College Avenue property that was destroyed. There will be no tax impact on the community for the purchase of this property, according to Goldberg.

District officials said the district’s legal counsel and business office, together with the district’s unnamed real estate broker, reviewed the plans and determined that the property’s fair market value matches the asking price. Since 2019, the district has been looking for a new site for the administrative offices.

Asked about the nearly $2 million purchase price, the district said, “The property is at market value.” A search of county records shows the building, built in 1900 and comprising 0.83 acres of property, is valued at $837,000. In 2013 the property was sold to the current owner in 2013 for $850,000.

Marijuana, aka cannabis or “weed”, has been legal in Canada since 2001 for medical purposes and it was also legalized for recreational use by adults in 2018. Although there are several ways to obtain marijuana, one of the easiest is to buy it online. Buying weed online is convenient and safe, as long as you follow a few simple rules and don’t break the law. It starts with finding a reputable and licensed dispensary, such as BuyWeedPacksunderstand the possession limits for medical and recreational use and determine what use you qualify for.

1) Medical Marijuana

Medical cannabis has been legal in Canada since 2001 and patients with a prescription are permitted to possess 150 grams or 30 times the equivalent of a prescribed daily dose of dried marijuana or its equivalent. To qualify for medical use limits, you must have a valid cannabis prescription from a licensed healthcare provider. In the absence of a prescription, you must follow the legal limits for recreational use.

2) Recreational use

Canadian law allows adults 18 and older to purchase and carry up to 30 grams of dried marijuana in public at one time. This restriction also applies to the quantity that can be transported in a vehicle. There is currently no limit to the amount of marijuana that can be kept at home. Canadian national law allows provinces to modify the quantities of possession, storage and transportation as well as the minimum age required. Although provinces are allowed to increase the minimum, they cannot lower it. Canadian law allows the following quantities of possession for recreational use by an adult:

  • One (1) gram of dried marijuana
  • Five (5) grams of fresh cannabis
  • 0.25 grams of concentrate
  • 15 grams of edibles
  • 70 grams of liquid
  • One (1) plant seed

* Note that the penalties for possession beyond these limits can range from a relatively small fine up to five years in prison.

Choose a dispensary

The top four places to buy weed online are Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, and Quebec. You might think that buying weed online is as easy as doing a quick search and selecting a store at the top of the search results or going to sites like Facebook or Craigslist. However, caution should be exercised when buying online to avoid disreputable or illegal sellers.

The Medical Marijuana Association warns consumers to do their due diligence before buying weed online, as there are disreputable sites that appear legit, but are actually scams. The same precautions are also recommended for recreational purchases. Make sure the dispensary is licensed, which means they will be regulated and their product will have been tested for contaminants that can cause unwanted side effects.

Once on a site, you will be asked to confirm your age before entering the site. Browse different product categories and compare selections and prices with other online sellers. After choosing a dispensary and making your choice, you will proceed to checkout and the package will be delivered to you.

Know what to buy

If this is your first time buying cannabis, you might be a little overwhelmed with all the different options. Take your time and consider all purchase options. There are two basic cannabis species known as Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica. Sativa has a more stimulating effect and indica has a relaxing effect on your mind and body. There are hybrids of both species that give some of the effects of each species.

The two main compounds found in cannabis are cannabidiol, or CBD, and tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. CBD is a pain reliever and can be extracted from cannabis or hemp. However, it is THC that produces the euphoric, or “high,” effect and it is found primarily in cannabis.

Cost of buying weed online

Like everything, online prices will fluctuate with supply and demand and will generally increase over time to cover the cost of inflation. However, the cost of buying weed online from a reputable supplier will usually be about the same or even cheaper than buying it in-store. Check with a few sites to get an idea of ​​the going prices and you’ll learn how to spot a bargain. Note that some dispensaries charge a delivery or shipping fee, but many will waive the fee if you spend a certain amount. He pays, or saves in this case, to confirm this before making a purchase.

Delivery

Online marijuana delivery is treated the same as buying other products online, with most stores shipping via the Canadian Postal Service or a reputable courier service.

Conclusion

Buying weed online isn’t really any more of a mystery than buying anything else on the web, and all the same common sense rules apply. Take your time to learn the market, compare prices, and confirm the legitimacy of the seller before submitting your credit card information, and you’ll quickly be a savvy online weed buyer.

43% below peak, Target Corp’s earnings warning is a buying opportunity https://groverchamber.com/43-below-peak-target-corps-earnings-warning-is-a-buying-opportunity/ Wed, 08 Jun 2022 14:40:38 +0000 https://groverchamber.com/43-below-peak-target-corps-earnings-warning-is-a-buying-opportunity/ NEW YORK, NY – DECEMBER 07: Target Bull Terrier official mascot “Bullseye” attends Target’s … [+] Toycracker premiered at Spring Studios on December 7, 2016 in New York City.

In an ideal world, people would form a mental picture of the supplies they need each week, and the products would appear instantly on their doorstep.

The real world has a lot more friction. Retailers forecast local demand for products, place orders with manufacturers, wait for those goods to ship, and hope that consumers will eagerly buy inventory when it arrives in their stores.

If retailers forecast demand accurately, the right products arrive in the right stores on time, and consumers buy them from the shelves quickly, the retailer makes a good profit.

This model can easily break. If goods are delayed in shipping and consumer needs change by the time the goods arrive in store, retailers must decide what to do with all the unsold inventory and rush to order more goods that consumers demand. now.

This comes to mind when considering Target’s June 7 earnings warning. According to the wall street journalTarget – whose stock is trading 43% below its all-time high of around $268 – cut its end-May operating margin estimate “from around 5.3% to around 2% for the second quarter. 2022″.

While the discounts needed to eliminate Target’s excess inventory may not be enough to stop inflation in its tracks, I remain bullish on CEO Brian Cornell and view the stock decline as a buying opportunity.

Excess inventory is an industry-wide problem

The reason for the profit warning was a mismatch between what is in stores and what customers want to buy. Specifically, in April, Target inventory soared 43% as a combination of lower demand and delayed shipments meant consumers weren’t buying enough outdoor furniture, small appliances and accessories. electronics on the shelves of Target.

With the pandemic waning, consumers are now eager to shop for food and beauty products when they leave home for work, social events and travel. Target is working to add more of these in-demand items and reduce outdoor furniture, small appliances and electronics to empty its inventory, the Journal noted.

Target isn’t alone in suffering from a buildup of inventory that consumers aren’t keen on buying. Other retailers with much higher inventory levels include Walmart – inventory rose 33% last quarter and Kohl’s – inventory rose 40%.

It also seems likely to me that retailers specializing in the categories that Target offers at discount prices will likely suffer the same fate. Specifically, Wayfair may have more furniture in stock than consumers want to buy and Best Buy may have excess electronics inventory.

Could retail markdowns reduce inflation?

In theory, discounting excess inventory could reduce inflation. After all, as the Journal wrote, “The increased inventory will likely lead to more discounts, which retailers had been avoiding during the pandemic product shortage. While the price cuts will reduce retailers’ operating profits, they “could be a boon for shoppers faced with rising prices for food, fuel and other goods and services.”

It remains to be seen whether the rebates to eliminate excess inventory will reduce the general price level in the economy and convince the Fed to forgo its interest rate hikes.

Unfortunately for those hoping that markdowns will reduce inflation, markdown goods only make up about 20% of the consumer price index. As Barrons wrote: “Goods excluding food and energy make up about 22% of the consumer price index… Less than a fifth of the CPI is experiencing markdowns.

A larger part of the CPI is still seeing strong price increases. For example, the services sector – such as airline tickets – accounts for around 60% of the CPI and in April airfares were up 18% from March. Meanwhile, oil — which accounts for about 10% of the CPI — is up 70% in 2022, according to Barron’s.

This could be an opportunity to buy target stocks

I’ve been favorably impressed with Target’s CEO since 2014 – Brian Cornell. As I wrote in October 2019, he excels at facing problems head-on and taking practical steps to resolve them.

For example, when he took over in mid-August 2014, Target was barely growing, struggling to recover from a massive consumer data breach and distracted by a disastrous expansion into Canada.

In February 2017, it announced a terrible quarterly result and a package of store improvements and other initiatives that would require $7 billion in capital expenditures and $1 billion in operating expenditures over three years. The target stock fell 13% to $58.

By October 2019, its shares had tripled. That’s because Cornell has made improvements across Target’s business. Most notably, he built the systems necessary to provide consumers with what is known as omnichannel – the ability for consumers to purchase goods in-store, online with in-store pickup or home delivery.

It really came in handy during the pandemic which started about six months after I wrote the story.

I think Target’s profit warning is another example of Cornell grabbing the bull by the horns. I am confident that he will restore Target’s growth and profitability.

With stocks rising in trade today, investors may see Target stock as a bargain.

The investment markets and the real estate market are going in opposite directions. The stock market is down and real estate prices are skyrocketing. As interest rates begin to rise, you may be wondering how stocks and real estate will react. What to do depends on your situation.

If you are implementing a long-term strategy, keep an eye on the goal and take a long-term view. Trying to predict what’s going to happen – especially in the short term – can be difficult and distracting. If you want to grow your net worth over five years or more and have your living expenses covered and an emergency fund in place, now may be the time for you to continue investing in the stock market on a regular basis. . It’s not about trying to figure out the perfect time to invest. It’s about consistency and keeping the long-term goal in mind.

If you’re several years away from retirement, you might even want to keep your percentage allocation aligned by taking some of your income investments and moving them to market. It’s not speculation. It stays on track during volatile periods. It’s ironic that most of us are willing to buy quality goods like clothes, vehicles, and electronics on sale, but when the stock market is down, there’s an emotional tendency to avoid buying. buy good mutual funds and even sell investments at depressed prices. Be sure to keep your emergency fund intact. It’s not about risking that money trying to predict the market.

If you’re in the market to buy a home, this may seem like a tough time. For first-time home buyers, this can seem especially difficult. Saving enough for a reasonable down payment while you watch prices rise is frustrating. If you’ve saved that down payment, you might be wondering if you should wait for prices to drop. But there is no guarantee that they will.

It’s less of a conundrum if you’re selling to buy another home. You pay more to buy, but you probably get more in your sale. Meanwhile, rising interest rates have led to higher mortgage rates, another challenge for homebuyers.

With the stock market and the real estate market, the long-term trends are upward prices. So if your time horizon is long term, it may be a good idea to invest as you would in “normal” markets and hold your investments for the long term.

Elon Musk buys Twitter, now what? https://groverchamber.com/elon-musk-buys-twitter-now-what/ Wed, 01 Jun 2022 06:29:36 +0000 https://groverchamber.com/elon-musk-buys-twitter-now-what/ We seem to be living in a time where “memes” are becoming reality.

We seem to be living in a time where “memes” are becoming reality. When Kanye West announcement in 2015 his plans to run for president in 2020, no one believed him until he did this. Fortunately, this event turned out to be largely inconsequential. A current meme coming true is Elon Musk’s recent decision to buy twitter – one of the most popular social media apps and source of information for many – that has the potential to radically alter the shape of our public discourse and give a private individual societal influence on par with our elected officials more powerful.

Billionaires like Elon Musk having as much, if not more, power than some well-known elected officials is a huge problem in a modern, technologically advanced society. These wealthy people can already edit markets with a single post, but with complete control of media institutions, they remove what little content filtering there is and risk allowing other users to spread dangerous misinformation.

Nor would Musk be the only billionaire with considerable media power. Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon and the greatest third the richest man, bought the Washington Post in 2013. Over the past 10 years, numerous other trusted media institutions have become the property of the mega-rich. And, of course, Facebook – a constant source of social media scandal — is headed by billionaire Mark Zuckerberg, so often at the center of the platform’s controversies. In short, buying Musk would continue the consolidation of media power in the hands of the incredibly wealthy.
