Oil drops amid price cap talks and tougher Chinese restrictions

Oil prices are again a little lower on Thursday as the G7 continues to work towards a ceiling in Russian oil prices. Brent crude fell sharply on Wednesday amid reports that the group could settle at a level around $65, roughly the price it is currently selling it at, and at a significant profit. This would mitigate the effectiveness of the cap and ensure that we don’t see a shortage in supply. But that may be what is needed to keep all stakeholders on board, with some countries concerned about the domestic implications of a tougher cap.

Discussions will continue but these reports have weighed on the price of oil at a time when restrictions, even confinements, in China threaten demand from the world’s second largest economy. And amid a report – since denied – that OPEC+ may increase production next week. I don’t know what the motive would be at this point, but it might very much depend on the outcome of the G7 talks.

Gold supported by the “accommodative pivot”

Gold bulls welcomed Wednesday’s FOMC minutes and we continue to see price profit today. The yellow metal benefited massively from the “dovish pivot” last month if you can even call it that, as policymakers appeared to support a slower pace of tightening from next month, which was then supported by minutes. .

It remains range-bound, however, with $1,730 providing support below – around the September and October highs – and resistance above $1,780 – a key support zone in the first half of the year.

The human rights crisis has taken on a new intensity since the BJP government came to power in 2014. State-sanctioned terrorism, draconian laws and a resistant population have created an extremely hostile environment for most minorities, in especially Muslims. Over the past few years, concerns have been raised about genocide being committed far from the public eye, but now, with at least 21 countries urging India to end these atrocious activities, all attention is diverted to the Modi’s government and its antics. in the hope that some change may occur.

World leaders and key international organizations – Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, the World Organization Against Torture and the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) – issued a joint statement urging India to end suppression of religious rights and freedoms. This statement follows the Universal Periodic Review by the United Nations (UN) Human Rights Council which detailed the myriad ways in which Muslims face discrimination in India. The Indian government passed anti-Muslim citizenship laws, revoked the special status of the IIOJK, suppressed freedom of expression, prevented peaceful assemblies, expelled Muslim refugees, incited violence against Muslims, carried out to forced conversions and demolishes places of worship, homes and properties without any legal basis.

That the whole world comes to a consensus that these acts are indeed part of the Indian government’s ruling strategy and continues to condemn them means that we have done our part in sounding the alarm over this atrocity. The truth is finally being recognized, but we are still at a point where the only support offered by the global community is condemnation. Recommendations on how to tackle this and what steps the Indian government should take were mentioned in the report, but there is no mechanism to enforce them. Our work has now evolved to push the world to do more and put in place effective conditions that will compel India to uphold the human rights charter, especially in the IIOJK which has become home to a silent genocide against Muslims.

2022 FIFA World Cup: Argentina have suffered two injury setbacks, with Nicolas Gonzalez and Joaquin Correa ruled out, while Angel Correa and Thiago Almada are substituted.

A few days before the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, the former two-time Argentinian champion suffered two injury setbacks. Striker Nicolas Gonzalez, who plays for Fiorentina in Serie A, suffered a muscle injury during a training session on Thursday which forced him to be sent off. In the meantime, he has been replaced by Angel Correa, who plays for Spanish giants Atletico Madrid. Correa, 27, has featured for La Selección 22 times, scoring three goals so far. The International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) has allowed the late change, as changes can be made before a team plays its opening match.

Correa was also a regular starter with the Mattress Makers under Diego Simeone. In his ninth season with the club, he plundered 63 goals in 350 appearances for Atletico, while this season he has played 21 games and scored four. Additionally, another Argentinian striker, Joaquin Correa, was ruled out with a knee problem, which he suffered after the team’s 5-0 win over the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Wednesday in Abu Dhabi. .

The 28-year-old Inter Milan striker has been replaced by Thiago Almada, 21, who plays for Atlanta United in Major League Soccer (MLS). While he has scored seven goals in 31 for Atalanta, he made his debut for La Selección earlier this year, having only played the first game so far without a goal scoring success.

Pickleball’s Skyrocketing Rise to Mainstream Success https://ifawpca.org/pickleballs-skyrocketing-rise-to-mainstream-success/ Wed, 09 Nov 2022 09:45:18 +0000 https://ifawpca.org/pickleballs-skyrocketing-rise-to-mainstream-success/ Most new sports are hybrids of older ones, and pickleball is no exception.

Most new sports are hybrids of older ones, and pickleball is no exception. An offspring of tennis, badminton, and ping pong, pickleball is played by singles or doubles teams hitting a ball back and forth over a 3-foot-tall net until an opponent commits a fault.

In 1965 the inventors of pickleball played with what they had – a repurposed badminton setup, ping pong paddles and a perforated plastic ball.

Today 4.8 million American pickleballers have much more to play: in the United States, there are 38 140 courts, 300 pickleball equipment manufacturers and hundreds grassroots clubs.

There has been much speculation about pickleball’s explosion in popularity. But now the sport looks set to break into the mainstream, with james lebron and other NBA and NFL luminaries recently announced major investments in the professional circuit.

Still, the young athlete is not immune to growing pains. As I say in my book “Emerging sports as social movementsthe popularity of some fledgling sports may seem obvious in the headlines. But their less visible social undercurrents ultimately determine whether they will continue to attract new players and fans.

The Feudal Period of Pickleball

For an organized sport to thrive, it needs structure – a common set of rules, rankings, equipment standards, scheduled events and a sense of identity that can unite players and the fans.

Currently, the social fabric of pickleball is scattered and woven by a web of competing interests. For each title about the miraculous growth of pickleball, you can also find stories of conflict and infighting between various leagues and governing bodies, as well as between pickleball players and tennis players.

The sport has three professional leagues battling for control of the pickleball kingdom. It has two international governing bodies: the International Pickleball Federation and the World Pickleball Federation. The little lords of pickleball too quarrel with tennis players on dual-use courts and expansion plans in public parks, with reports of “turf wars” and “a showdownbetween the two racquet sports.

Picklebalkanization,” somebody?

Infighting is common in emerging sports movements. Cornhole, disc golf and esports, for example, had to contend similar challenges. In some cases, conflict can be a good thing. This can stimulate innovation. But it can also leave some fans, sponsors and potential players wondering who they should be watching, investing or playing for.

Compared to traditional racquet sports, pickleball is less expensive, requires less space, and may be more compatible with the aches and pains that come with age. And unlike other emerging sports, the future of pickleball looks bright. But for now, he has more in common with French feudalism from the ninth century – when territorial disputes were commonplace – than a modern unified sports movement towards the Olympic Games.

Birds of a feather dink together

If two strangers meet at a bar and share an interest in pickleball, they won’t stay strangers for long. Shared passion is the glue and fuel of emerging sports communities. But the human tendency to bond with those like us also poses a problem for sports looking to gain popularity.

Sociological studies show that our love of similarity is part of why our social groups and networks tend to be homogeneous, such as male-dominated professions, white-dominated community groups, and friendship circles united by a single religion. For grassroots sports, which spread via social media, the similarity problem can limit growth by narrowing the herd to those with similar feathers.

Pickleball insiders like to talk about the relatively balanced sport gender report, that is approximately 60 to 70% of men and 30 to 40% of women. The newest professional league, Major League Pickleball, promotes the sport through mixed competitionswith teams made up of two men and two women – a format unique in the male-dominated world of professional sports.

But grassroots sports are born from scratch, and long-term growth depends in part on the demographic diversity of key players. Pickleball may be younger, but a third of its avid players are from retirement age. About half of the population of pickleball players likely saw the Apollo 11 moon landing. It is difficult to calculate accurate statistics on niche communities, but from my review of several academics and journalistic sources, pickleballers are predominantly older, white, affluent and suburban. For example, two poll-based studies with large samples estimated the proportion of white gamers at 93.5% and 94.1%.

Demographic homogeneity is a difficult trend to counter. Of course, some sports, like golf and NASCAR, have expanded their reach without solving the similarity problem. But given the nation’s reckoning around race and gender, a successful push for greater diversity might be the only thing that separates pickleball from the crowd of upstart dreamers.

Will the revolution even have to be televised?

That the sport thrives when the mainstream media pays attention to it seems obvious. Increased media coverage from ESPN or CBS attracts more attendees and consumers, attracts sponsors, and fosters stronger sporting institutions.

Yet, as a growth strategy, buy airtime on ESPN — which sports like cornhole and ax throwing do — can provide little more than airy hope. As pickleball strives to expand its audience, it faces fierce competition from traditional sports brands such as the NFL and NBA, as well as emerging brands such as esports, mixed martial arts , disc golf, cornhole, drone racing, round net, darts and ax throwing.

With so many options, some sports won’t make it big. The history of emerging sports is full of ups and downs. Interest in gambling sports like jai alai and horse racing has has decreased enormously since the end of the 20th century. ESPN’s X Games popularized alternative sports like skateboarding in the late 1990s, but some disciplines, such as street sledding, were left behind. Drop “poker” into a google trends search box and you will see that the Texas Hold’em boom lasted about three years, from 2004 to 2006.

The next big thing in sports might not thrive at all. Since young consumers are migration to streaming servicesrevolution may not be televised to mass audiences, but will instead be streamed to hardcore fans.

Niche sports like pickleball can have an edge as sports spectator shards. For smaller sports, a modest following with slow but steady growth could be the recipe for lasting success. There are many options to watch pickleball matches, such as YouTube channels, live streams via Facebook, fuboTV, and some coverage on broadcast and cable channels, but the demand for live coverage stay modest.

Ultimately, with so many shiny new sports to choose from, the winners won’t be determined by flashy media exposure or top-down business forces, but rather bottom-up community building. Regardless of how popular pickleball advertising is, the consumer base for watching the sport will strongly appeal to people who already enjoy playing it. The love of any sport has its roots in culture – not commerce.

If pickleball lives up to the hype, it will do so on the backs of local volunteers and organizers who can turn a loose network of casual players into an international community of pickleball fanatics.

Bermuda will be at the table of high-level meetings between global insurance regulators and representatives of the re/insurance industry this week, with structured discussions in general and private hearings related to the unprecedented challenges reshaping the industry. .

The insurance industry’s global standard setter for supervision, the International Association of Insurance Supervisors meets later this week in Santiago, Chile for its 2022 Annual Conference on November 10-11.

And just before that on Wednesday will be the general assembly of the World Federation of Insurance Associations, also in Santiago.

Bermuda is represented at both events by the Bermuda Association of Insurers and Reinsurers, with expected attendance from John M. Huff, Abir’s Managing Director, and Suzanne Williams-Charles, Policy and Regulatory Manager.

Abir is a founding member of the GFIA, a non-profit organization created to represent national and regional insurance associations that serve the general interests of insurance and reinsurance companies and make representations to governments, international regulators and others on their behalf.

Representing Bermuda: Suzanne Williams-Charles, Director of Policy and Regulation of Abir (photo provided)

The GFIA represents nearly 90% of the global re/insurance market. Abir is an active participant in a number of GFIA working groups, including those focused on climate risk, cyber risk, taxation and trade.

AICA’s voluntary members include the Bermuda Monetary Authority and include supervisors from over 200 jurisdictions, representing 97% of global insurance premiums.

In addition, the IAIS helps its members deal with emerging risks and challenges, playing a role in identifying trends and developments that could reshape the insurance industry.

The theme of this year’s IAIS Annual Conference is: “A Changing Landscape: The Role of the Insurance Industry in Addressing Emerging Economic and Social Challenges.

Roundtable topics will include diversity, equity and inclusion; change consumer preferences; macroeconomic risks; climate risk and the Insurance Capital Standard.

Abir’s delegation will also take the opportunity to schedule conference side meetings with insurance supervisors from around the world.

Mr. Huff, former president of the American National Association of Insurance Commissioners, and Ms. Williams-Charles are both former insurance supervisors.

Marc Grandisson, Chairman of Abir and CEO of Arch Capital Group, Ltd, said: “As a global leader in climate risk, natural disaster protection and the management of complex and emerging risks, such as cybersecurity, it is imperative that the Bermuda market has a voice on the global stage of the insurance industry.

“Abir is delighted to represent Bermuda’s leading insurers and reinsurers at these meetings with industry bodies and regulators around the world, and to play a leadership role in addressing global industry, economic and social challenges. .

Mr. Huff added: “The availability of re/insurance will be a key consideration for global insurance regulators and the potential for the Bermuda market’s significant capital capacity to meet global demand will be of great interest.

“Bermuda’s insurers and reinsurers will once again show their value proposition in the face of major natural disasters in the United States, with the Bermuda market set to support billions of dollars in claims from Hurricane Ian victims, extending a experience of three decades in consistently delivering on their ‘promise ‘pay.’

“We look forward to contributing to discussions about the global challenges facing the industry and the unique capabilities of the Bermuda market to address them.”
