  1. Footprints believed to have belonged to a crocodile-like prehistoric reptile have been found in the Italian Alps in an extraordinary discovery that scientists say proves there were survivors of a mass extinction 252m years ago. The first footprints were found in rocks in the area in 2008, with the scientists continuing their exploration over the following years until they had the complete set of prints needed to identify the animal. "The fossil footprints were found in a kind of very wet sediment in which they could be preserved," said Massimo Bernardi, a palaeontologist at Muse.

  5. From article: An apparent drug sale of 50 Xanax pills between Kevin E. Peterson Jr. and a confidential informant outside the Quality Inn in Hazel Dell ended with Clark County sheriff’s deputies fatally shooting the young Black man, according to court records filed Friday. The records cite evidence that suggests Peterson not only had a firearm but that he fired two rounds at deputies.

  6. After World War II, a new international monetary system called Bretton Woods was created. Bretton Woods established three main things: (1) the U.S. dollar was to be an international reserve currency, (2) the U.S. dollar would be backed by gold at a price of $35 per ounce, and (3) any country could exchange dollars for gold. Countries running trade surpluses with the US sought to exchange their dollars for gold, and this rapidly shrunk US gold reserves. This then led to the so called Nixon shock - President Richard Nixon effectively ending the Bretton Woods

    South Korea is considering moving some of the factories from China to India, according to a report in the Times of India.

  9. U.S. stocks may frustrate investors looking to buy at lower prices this year. The S&P 500 Index’s performance on a total-return basis, including reinvested dividends, in post-World War II election years shows as much. Retreats of 10% or more, sing a commonly used threshold for corrections, occurred only half of the time during those years. They include 2008, when a financial crisis and a recession weighed on share prices, along with 2012 and 2016. The data on so-called drawdowns was cited in a report sent Thursday by Keith Lerner, SunTrust Private Wealth Management’s chief market strategis

  13. Will Rogers once recommended that people should buy land due to its scarcity. With this in mind, investors need to understand the practicality of owning land and of running a land-based business venture. Types of Land Investments Independently wealthy people can purchase land for personal use, recreation – and yes, investment. Unfortunately, most people do not fall into this category. This begs the question: Are land-ownership opportunities and business ventures capable of generating an acceptable return on investment for small investors, while still affording them the joys and attr
