Huddersfield capture Terence Kongolo for club-record fee

first_img 1 Huddersfield have broken their transfer record to bring Monaco defender Terence Kongolo back to the club.The 24-year-old Netherlands international spent the second half of last season on loan with the Terriers. Terriers boss David Wagner is confident Kongolo will get ‘better and better’. center_img He made 17 appearances across David Wagner’s back line, playing a major role as Town retained their Premier League status.And now Kongolo has returned to Huddersfield on a permanent basis, signing a four-year deal for an undisclosed club-record fee.Huddersfield head coach David Wagner told the club’s official website: “His signing is a big statement for this club.“We knew he was a top, top player when we brought him in on loan in January; you don’t play for the Netherlands in a World Cup and win the Dutch league with Feyenoord otherwise. However, his performances in our shirt exceeded our expectations.“Terence gives us a fantastic option at centre-back and at left-back and the way that he defends on the front foot is perfect for our style.“He is also at the start of his career as a 24-year-old and it’s exciting for us to think he can still get better and better from the high level he’s already at.“We also know what a top, top character he is. He is a perfect fit for our changing room, as everyone has seen he has ‘Terrier Spirit’ in his DNA. This is exactly what we need in the players that we bring to this club.”last_img read more

Soybean picture complex after USDA report

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest US corn ending stocks were estimated at 2.127 billion bushels, a decline of 225 million bushels. Corn exports increased 175 million bushels with corn used for ethanol was up 50 million bushels. Last month corn ending stocks were 2.352 billion bushels. Corn usage was up more than expected. US soybean ending stocks were estimated at 555 million bushels, a jump of 25 million bushels. Crush was up 10 million bushels with exports cut 35 million bushels. Last month ending stocks were 530 million bushels. Wheat ending stocks were 1.034 billion bushels and last month it was 1.009 billion bushels.Soybeans were negative as the US ending stocks increased while traders expected unchanged.Argentina soybean production was 47 million tons. Last month it was 54 million tons. No surprise for Argentina soybeans. Brazil soybean production was 113 million tons and compares to 112 million tons last month. No surprise for Brazil soybeans. Argentina corn production was    36 million tons with last month at 39 million tons. Brazil corn production was 94.5 million tons while last month was 95 million tons. While the Argentina soybean production was not a surprise, it could be negative as it was larger than earlier private estimates.Shortly after the report was released corn was up 4 cents, soybeans down 4 cents, and wheat    down 2 cents. Just before the noon release corn was up 1 cent, soybeans were unchanged, with wheat down 3 cents.Two weeks ago it was a common thread with today’s report for traders as traders anticipated US corn exports or corn used for ethanol to increase while US soybean exports were thought to decrease. Today the soybean picture is more complex and volatile as some expected the US soybean crush could increase due to the smaller production from Argentina.Weather and USDA are the dominant features in the market this report day. Argentina weather has been THE market feature this past month. As a recap, in a huge surprise to the market, the February 8th USDA Supply and Demand Report raised the US soybean ending stocks 60 million bushels to 530 million bushels. Yet, soybeans closed that day 4 cents higher. Looking further at the price action on that report day, soybeans on the day’s low were down just 5 cents. What erased the negative numbers? Argentina. Weeks later we learn Argentina had their driest February in several decades. Also, it is most apparent that the headline reading algorithms often used by managed money on USDA report days were not in play that February day as the 60 million bushel increase in ending stocks could have easily had soybeans down 10-20 cents in the minutes that followed the report release.Weather maps today suggest rains could hit Argentina in the north the beginning of next week with better rains over larger areas of Argentina later in the week. Are the rains too late for corn.Today could also be a hard day to understand price action. With all of the weeks on end news about Argentina, we could easily have Argentina’s corn and soybean production reduced, but prices not move higher. That occurs when trader estimates for production are below what USDA publishes. For example, a friendly number could be neutral or even negative if it is above trade expectations.Last month USDA estimated Argentina soybean production at 54 million tons. The average trade estimate is for Argentina soybean production is 48.4 million tons. Last week Informa estimated the Argentina soybean production at just 44 million tons. They also estimated Argentina corn production at 33.5 million tons with USDA at 39 million tons last month. The average trade estimate for Argentina’s corn production is 36.6 million tons.The ramped up rhetoric in Washington, DC on steel tariffs paints an ongoing picture of uncertainty. Today at noon we should hear more details on the tariffs to be imposed. The question is not in those details. Rather, what are the trade retaliations we face from the affected countries? Those retaliatory moves could easily hurt US agriculture and the US economy for months on end.Three weeks from today USDA will release the March Planting Intentions Report along with the Quarterly Stocks Report. Early projections have corn acres down and soybean acres up from last year. It promises to be a volatile time the balance of March. There used to be a February Intentions Report along with the March Intentions Report. That was cut decades ago due to budget constraints. Now I’m dating myself.last_img read more

The Future of IoT with Kids

first_imgThere is no question that the future is “The Internet of Things, IoT for Kids. While the concept may seem complex, the basics of IoT are pretty simple. Objects that we interact with everyday (including phones, watches, thermostats, speakers, lightbulbs, etc) are all connected to the internet. This allows them to communicate with us, with each other, and add in a little machine learning, you’ve got a system of interconnected devices that help make your life simpler. Homes are getting smarter and the IoT device list is ever increasing, but so is the opportunity as a parent to help your kids learn from and grow with them.IoT with Kids Is GrowingFrom being able to view the inside of your fridge with your phone at the grocery store, to monitoring your smoke alarm or toothbrush with your smart watch, the vast inventory of available IoT items is staggering. Practically every device on the planet can be designed with the cloud in mind. You can track your heart rate, temperature, what food is left in the fridge, your kid’s location, whether you’re brushing your teeth too hard or not hard enough, and just about anything else you could possibly want to know through a connected device. Gartner estimates 8.4 billion IoT devices were used across the world in 2017. That is a 31% growth since 2016. And that number is only going to get bigger. IoT device usage is estimated to climb to 20.4 billion by 2020.With the slew of connected devices, WiFi is becoming less of a luxury and more of a necessity. The world is getting smarter, and future generations will have to keep up with it. What’s surprising is that, so far, they are. Have you ever noticed that some toddlers are better at operating smart phones than many of us adults? My daughter knew how to pose for a selfie long before she knew how to say the word “mama”. What Does This Mean For Our Kids?Not that we want to imagine our kids’ future careers right off the bat, but it’s pretty cool that so many companies are jumping on board with teaching kids to code. Even devices like Amazon’s Alexa might one day be able to teach you a foreign language.  Imagine life before Google, and the ability to go from question to reasonably researched answer within seconds. Now imagine that our children are growing up in a world where information is not only readily available, but accessible no matter your location. (Seriously, I have answered my doorbell from another country.) The Internet was just the beginning, now we have an entire Internet, of things. There are so many devices to help you and your kids stay connected, healthy and safe.The Internet of Things has even made toys smart. A connected toy means that your child’s experience is dynamic, ever-changing, and will only keep getting better thanks to software updates. This technology is enabling children to construct, play, and even code their own content into toys. Connected toys are getting kids interested in STEM not only by teaching them to understand logic, but enabling them to see their own work come to life in real-time.Peace of MindSmart devices give you the ability to change the thermostat without needing to lift a finger, but they also give parents peace of mind. If you’re a little tech savvy, you can know what your kids are up to at all times. Stalking your child is not effective. However, with the push of a button you can tell if they were at Julie’s house, or Jenny’s house. Parents are able to track their kids’ location, whether it be through the kid’s phone, smart watch, or any other connected device. And the benefits go beyond security.  For today’s time-starved parent, convenience is just as crucial. “We’ve seen an increasing number of parents signing their kids up for classes and camps because they can ‘check in’ through smart devices” said Suzanne Felson, the founder of Reso, a curator of kid’s activities in the Bay Area. After most moms experience how easy location-based technology has made it for them to find a book a new activity for their kids, their typical response is “God, I really needed this years ago” according to Felson.So many dreams for you and for your children can be realized with these IoT devices. It would be a shame not to learn about them and incorporate them into your parenting system. Just for a moment, think of all the technological developments you’ve witnessed growing up. Now imagine your kid being able to replicate that code, as a toddler. I’m not saying that every kid is the next coding genius, but technology gives me hope. The possibilities are endless. But in order to do all that we want to with the IoT — and still keep our families safe — we will need to understand the mechanism better.Trouble in ParadiseThere are definitely security concerns with all of these connected devices flooding the marketplace. We basically have the capability of assigning an IP address to every atom on Earth. But hey, business idea! As the necessity of these devices (and how easy they make day to day life) increases, so will the potential for security risks. For now, parents need to monitor this aspect of IoT with kids.  From your coffee maker and heating and cooling system to your connected car, you don’t need to be scared of these devices — but you do need to be cognizant of keeping your information secure. Connected devices are here, and will become ever more ubiquitous over the years.Even with security concerns, the Internet of Things has improved many aspects of my life (and my child’s life). And will absolutely continue to do so as she gets older. Truthfully, I almost feel bad for my kid. I will know where she is at every moment of every day. And I’m the kind of mom who will constantly be rolling her eyes at.  With all of the smart technology in IoT, she will be capable of technological advancements I would have never thought possible. And she won’t be able to get away with nearly the amount of things I did when I was her age. But as a parent, that’s the dream, and the future here, is very bright.

There is a club that has always loved him and it is PSG. The operation that Barcelona’s board of directors has in mind is to negotiate Neymar-Griezmann in the winter market.” last_img read more
