My recent article in Benzinga may help you avoid acting irrationally during the next sharp market decline. My market analysis is based on the market data with the main focus on the advance/decline numbers and the actual price data of the market I am investing or trading.

During panic selloffs a market can drop well below the quarterly pivot during the week but not close the week below it.

A southern Utah wildfire has grown more, reaching 62.7 square miles (162.4 square kilometers) by Saturday night. The fire near the town of Brian Head is 8 percent contained and has destroyed at least 13 homes, fire officials said. Evacuation orders were given in nearby alpine communities that are generally known for second homes as a weekend getaway for Las Vegas residents. High winds and hot weather continue to intensify the fire but conditions are expected to improve Sunday before winds return Monday. Officials said firefighters are trying to fully extinguish hot spots in the southwest corner in order to allow Brian Head residents to return.

A military jet is attended to after flipping over Friday at Dayton International Airport in Ohio. (Ty Greenlees /Dayton Daily News via AP)While landing at a rain-soaked airport in Dayton, Ohio, on Friday, an Air Force fighter jet skidded off the runway and flipped upside down, trapping two men inside for more than an hour. A pilot took the F-16D Fighting Falcon out from Dayton International Airport in the morning to prepare for an air show this weekend, the commander of the Air Force Thunderbirds told reporters. The airport got a record-breaking amount of rain that day, according to the Dayton Daily News, but the Air Force said the weather had been deemed safe to fly in. While it has not offered any explanation for how Gonsalves crashed, the Air Force plans to eventually release a report on its investigation.

But as Saenz and hundreds of other cadets gathered for a graduation ceremony Saturday morning, they did so amid disturbing allegations about misconduct among some of their peers in the program. For every cadet accused of wrongdoing, she said, there are hundreds more who wear the uniform for the right reasons. The friendly and positive interactions marked the kind of trust-building the cadet program aims to achieve, standing in stark contrast to the troubling allegations that have surfaced in recent days. Beck provided no updates about investigations into the cadet program or Cain on Saturday morning, only repeating his belief that the scandal is largely confined to the 77th Street Division. Beck ordered a “top-to-bottom” review of the cadet program last week after the thefts were uncovered.

Though a lot of people have been asking me, I don’t know if Alan Mulally is in the running to replace Travis Kalanick as the new CEO of Uber. Two reasons: First, Mulally is just the sort of father figure Uber’s remaining executives need to help them — and their company — grow up. At 71, Mulally would bring some much-needed maturity, wisdom and discipline to Uber. He’s already providing that sort of balancing influence on Google’s board of directors, and I am certain he could do the same at Uber. Mulally could provide that same catalyst for cultural transformation at Uber.

The UWI students are from Barbados, Guyana, Trinidad, St. Vincent, the Bahamas, Jamaica, Belize, and other Caribbean nations---almost all of them once British colonies. Most Caribbean students are of African descent, a few of East Indian origin, and a few of mixed genetic heritage (called douglas). The British colonial laws prohibited the Caribbean slaves from acquiring education, but the restrictions on consuming rum were ineffective because the slaves had too much access to the molasses. I don’t want to leave the table where UWI students are still debating reparations for slavery. Barbados is a bit segregated though it is predominantly a nation of the progeny of African slaves.

Brace yourselves, America: Stephen Colbert is contemplating another run for the White House. The host of CBS' “The Late Show” announced his plans in a way that would make his satirical alter-ego proud: on Russian television. Colbert was game -- if a little confused by a game in which there could only be one outcome. He also made a promise to Colbert that "we will do all we can to ensure that you become president." As for the equally pressing question of whether he’s being serious about 2020, consider that Colbert has already attempted to run for president.

Utah GOP Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of House oversight committee, said Saturday that the Justice Department’s inspector general’s office, in addition to a Senate panel, is looking into whether former Attorney General Loretta Lynch tried to squash the FBI’s Hillary Clinton email investigation. He said Lynch “directed me not to call it an investigation and call it a matter -- which confused me." Chaffetz, who is officially resigning next week from Congress, said Saturday the remark “evidently sparked a series of events” for Comey. The Senate Judiciary Committee, in a bipartisan announcement, formally asked Lynch and others Friday to respond to allegations of “political interference” in the FBI email probe. The Senate inquiry was also prompted by news reports that raised questions about whether Lynch tried to stifle the investigation.

If you’re in Los Angeles, that’s like shooting from the roof of Staples Center and hitting a target at the L.A. In Las Vegas, it would be like making a shot from the MGM Grand to the Wynn. That’s what a Canadian sniper accomplished in Iraq when he killed an Islamic State fighter from a distance of 3,540 meters, or almost 2.2 miles, setting a record for the longest kill shot in military history. Guinness World Records names the previous record holder as British sniper Craig Harrison, who shot two Taliban fighters in Afghanistan from 2,474 meters, or a little over 1.5 miles, in November 2009. “Your crosshairs stay on the target,” said Cork, but the rifle would be aiming about 60 feet high.

Rural health workers also promote contraception, which is free in Liberia through support from American aid and from the United Nations Population Fund. Her husband was furious and abandoned her when she took in God Power. Now God Power is severely malnourished and fighting for his life, but it’s not because Tarr is neglecting him: When we met her, she hadn’t eaten for three days. We can’t save every child, whether it’s God Power or Sunday. President Trump proposes that we turn our back on that bipartisan tradition, and on children like Sunday and God Power.

In the meantime, the jobs most in demand — like nursing and nurse assistants, home health care aides, occupational therapists or physical therapists — sit open. The health care sector had the largest gap between vacancies and hires of any sector in April, for example. Yet just 10 percent of nurses are men, despite “Are You Man Enough … to Be a Nurse?” posters and other efforts to enlist men. “I sometimes wonder if health organizations don’t want men to come into these jobs because they’ll demand higher wages,” Professor Dill said. “We need to reinvent pink-collar jobs so men will take them and won’t be unhappy — or women, either.”
Sign Up You agree to receive occasional updates and special offers for The New York Times's products and services. But maintaining a smaller version of that subsidy would have, once again, cost money, so instead the health care law’s biggest losers will continue to lose out. But it’s still the act of a party dedicated primarily to rescuing the rich from their tax rates, rather than stewarding the common good. The best conservative health policy analysis proceeds from the controversial but, I think, correct perspective that much health spending is wasted and that people do not value or benefit from insurance as much as liberal technocrats presume. But a more holistic, less plutocratic conservatism would not stop there: In an environment where de-industrialization and social breakdown have driven the working class Trumpward, saying we should not oversubsidize their health insurance should be followed by saying so that we can find other ways to help them.
PhotoLONDON — The British Parliament was the target of a cyberattack that left many legislators unable to connect to their email on Saturday as remote access to accounts was disabled as a security measure. According to The Times, the stolen data revealed the private login details of 1,000 British members of Parliament and parliamentary staff, 7,000 police employees and more than 1,000 Foreign Office officials.
