US President Donald Trump has supported many policies that could harm emerging market economies. But investors are betting that his bark will turn out to be worse than his bite. More than US$7 billion has poured into exchange-traded funds tracking emerging market stocks and bonds this year through February 19. That runs counter to the six weeks after Trumps election victory, when investors yanked US$2 billion from the funds on concerns about his promises to reshape Americas trade...

The Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Clippers have talked about a swap that would bring Blake Griffin to Boston, per Zach Lowe of ESPN, though any deal is a longshot: They have talked intermittently with the Clippers about Blake Griffin in recent weeks, per several league sources, but a deal is extremely unlikely. Griffin will be a free agent this summer, and Boston would probably need official permission to talk to him about his future -- a concession Minnesota allowed Cleveland before the Kevin Love trade. The Clips would ask for a bounty, starting with Jae Crowder and one of the Avery Bradley/ Marcus Smart duo, plus picks, per league sources. More to follow.

The Los Angeles Lakers won't make the playoffs this year and are a long shot to qualify next season, too. Their first-round pick in the 2017 draft is headed to the Philadelphia 76ers if it lands outside the top three. Add those two sentences together, and the result is an organization that has no business buying talent at this week's trade deadline. But that doesn't mean the Lakers shouldn't sniff around for a young, unpolished player who fits their timeline . Underused and ostensibly overlooked prospects who play on teams with win-now mandates are always helpful; given L.A.'s inability to lure noteworthy free agents these past few summers, this is a secondary path toward finding potential All-Star talent. (Though, admittedly, it's one unlikely to yield results.) These types of players don't grow on trees, but here's a look at five candidates who fit what the Lakers should be looking for.

With six teams within six points of a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, and four teams within the same distance of a postseason berth in the West, the 2017 NHL trade deadline presents a challenging conundrum for most franchises. With the majority toeing the line on becoming buyers or sellers, there is plenty of buzz surrounding some of the league's notable players. Throw in expiring contracts and the impending expansion drafts, and general managers are certain to pull the trigger on a blockbuster deal or two before Feb. 28. Let us take a look at the latest reports on the big-name players who could soon be on the move. St. Louis Putting High Price on Shattenkirk Perhaps no player over the last year has garnered as much trade speculation as Blues defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk, and the buzz is warranted. The 28-year-old blueliner ranks second on St.

NEW ORLEANS Five items heard, seen or clarified from an All-Star Weekend of all things NBA Boston Celtics Are on the Clock A common question around town over the weekend was whether the Boston Celtics, who have assembled the ingredients needed for a superstar trade package but have gone so long without finding a suitable partner, would make it happen this week. Here's hoping they have the nerve to make Jimmy Butler their prize. If the Celtics make that move, LeBron James' unshakable hold on the Eastern Conference might finally loosen. Butler to the Celtics is a big enough dealwith legit NBA Finals ramificationsto put in perspective the relatively inconsequential move of DeMarcus Cousins from one mediocre team in Sacramento to another in New Orleans . The Celtics have reservations, according to league sources, about adding Butler after how wonderfully the Isaiah Thomas emergence has gone.

That is very congenial and co-operative of the Minister and I very much appreciate that. Perhaps I don't have the confidence in the other place that he has but we will wait with bated breath. Unexplained wealth orders will be available to the court where they are disproportionate to known legitimate income. It was reported a taxi driver owns a £1 million fish tank, not to say it is a potentially lucrative trade but certainly that would be disproportionate.

If the rumors and speculation from the past few days are an indication of the action we will be seeing this week prior to the NBA trade deadline (Thursday, February 23, at 3 p.m. ET), then half of the NBA's players will be changing addresses by the weekend. At least that's how it seems. Portland and Denver kicked things off with the Jusuf Nurkic -Mason Plumlee deal before the New Orleans Pelicans pulled off a heist by acquiring DeMarcus Cousins . There are almost too many names to keep track of at this juncture. Let's take a look at three in particular and offer some predictions on where they will call home. Jimmy Butler The balance of power in the Eastern Conference can shift dramatically if Boston Celtics general manager Danny Ainge gives a Godfather offer to the Chicago Bulls for All-Star forward Jimmy Butler, but is Boston willing to pay what should be a hefty price? Ric Bucher of Bleacher Report said Boston eschewed landing Cousins in hopes of landing the Chicago Bulls star: And Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical also confirmed Boston's interest in Butler: The question is whether the Celtics are willing to mortgage their future in order to try to knock Cleveland off the Eastern Conference perch.

Jimmy Butler is the best player on the Chicago Bulls by wide miles and has turned out to be one of the best players in the NBA and an ESPN cover boy. But for the last month, rumors have persisted that Butler would be dealt from the Bulls to the Boston Celtics . The motivation for this potential deal, which includes the potential No. 1 draft pick this summer (through the floundering Brooklyn Nets ), is simple. The Celtics are playing well and sense an opportunity to overcome the defending NBA champion Cleveland Cavaliers , while the Bulls have missed the playoffs last year with Butler and seem like a team heading nowhere with him in the lineup this season. Why not trade Butler for a package that includes the potential No. 1 draft pick? That's one of the possibilities for the Celtics, who would become a stronger and more gifted team with the All-Star on the roster.

Its time the world revoked this free pass through tough talk, civic action and political sanctions in a coalition of the mindful. Given the myriad ways the U.S. could use its power and privileges to upend international politics, the world should be specific: sanctions will be imposed because of a specific policy and will only be revoked when the policy is repealed. For example, if the U.S. really does tear up the nuclear deal with Iran and impose new sanctions unilaterally, Europe and China should refuse to follow suit. Other countries should be free to trade with Iran based on their national interests, and the international community should stand together on this. If the U.S. decides to withdraw from the Paris climate change agreement, the rest of the world, led by China and the EU, must continue without it. If the U.S. really does move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, members of the U.

It could cost Pershing Gold Corp (TSE:PGLC) (NASDAQ:PGLC) as little as US$12.2 mln in initial capital expense to get the Relief Canyon gold mine in Nevada into production, based on a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) completed in June 2016. Given that on current plans Relief Canyon is expected to produce 88,500 ounces of gold per year over a 5.8 year mine life, that makes for some interesting numbers in the financial modelling. Pershing is currently finalising a pre-feasibility study (PFS) that will nail down the economics with greater certainty. But, as it stands, if the company chooses to mine Relief Canyon itself, the pre-tax internal return could be a very healthy 98%. If an alternative option to use contract miners is pursued, then the IRR could be an even more impressive 125%, although the trade-off is that overall pre-tax net cash flow drops from US$247.

These arguments have occurred in countless think pieces since the moment La La Land opened. The New York Times arts writers, for instance, chimed in one by one on the musicals merits, and lack thereof, last week. Such political undercurrents offer a narrow, though not necessarily unfair, rubric for an awards show long granted an inflated premium within our pop-culture landscape. But if politics haunt the Oscars, shouldnt the recipients reflect the moments political mood? Maybe. History shows that honoring exemplary art has always been a mere slice of the Oscar pie. When a coterie of Hollywood bigwigs created the Academy Awards, first held in 1929, they intended to harmonize the ballooning industry, which was facing labor disputes and struggling in the transition from silents to talkies. Within two years, subtle lobbying had started , with studios purchasing ads in trade magazines touting their candidates.
