Asian markets were mixed Monday and oil fell as investors assessed data showing further weakness in China’s economy and comments from Federal Reserve officials showing it was wedded to its campaign of interest rate hikes to fight inflation. However, analysts warned that inflation would take time to come down from its four-decade highs and there were undoubtedly more rate hikes to come. And officials backed that up at the weekend, with Minneapolis Fed chief Neel Kashkari telling the New York Times that he was “surprised by markets’ interpretation” of the latest Fed meeting statement. The data out of China revived demand concerns on oil markets, sending both main contracts down Monday, following a bounce last week. “The US has expressed optimism about the potential for an OPEC+ supply response, said SPI Asset Management’s Stephen Innes.

A senior PPP leader said while responding to a question – why PPP MPA Ali Haider Gillani did not file his nomination papers for the post, giving the PTI candidate a walkover. The joint opposition parties’ candidate, Ali Gillani, did not file his nomination papers for the deputy speaker’s elections that were held on Saturday. The senior PPP leader, however, denied the media reports, saying that the PML-N was trying to play dirty by bypassing their party leadership and nominating a PPP MPA for the deputy speaker’s elections on their own. PPP MPA Usman Mehmood told The Express Tribune that it was out of protest that they did not file the nomination papers. He said that the speaker’s elections were held in an unfair manner, which they had challenged in the court.

The Interior Ministry in the Senate unleashed figures according to which there have been 434 terrorist attacks in Pakistan within the last six months. This development comes in the backdrop of stagnant and uncertain peace talks with the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), which has refused to budge from its hardline stance. Recently, the Ulema delegation was unable to convince the TTP to halt attacks and hold peace talks as both sides were skeptical of one another. We must remain within the confines of the constitution but also be sensitive to the grievances put forth by the organisation. There is a solution out there and the government must continue to strive for it, however peacefully possible.

Such people should have been given seats in the front row, not made to wait outside the celebration marquee. Those who have, unfortunately, monopolised state power in Pakistan, were the ones who hardly took part in the Independence Movement or, for that matter, in the War of Independence 1857. The army first tasted political power when late Field Marshal Ayub was made the Defence Minister as sitting Army Chief. We have now militias of religious political parties and sectarian brutes like JUI(F) and TLP strut around as political workers. This brief review of the state of the nation pushes one to the conclusion that the entire state system has to be remodelled to make the country viable or else the ship is already sinking in any case.

Admittedly, a poor enrollment rate is a major problem that many districts are trying to combat. Khyber, for instance, has launched an admissions campaign with the hopes that the number of school-going children will increase. The reason why Pakistan’s education system is in shambles goes beyond just low admission rates. Encouraging enrollment rates in isolation will not suffice and may in fact be counterproductive as parents are more likely to withdraw their children from poor functioning schools that promise no positive results. Holistic and all-encompassing solutions are needed so that high enrollment actually translates into schools being beneficial for children.

England manager Sarina Wiegman has fulfilled her goal of using Euro 2022 to fuel the nation's passion for women's football and victory in Sunday's final against Germany would consummate the burgeoning love affair. Anticipation is reaching fever pitch in England as the Lionesses look to end their wait to win a first major tournament. Such support for the sport shows how far women's football in England has come since it was banned by the Football Association for nearly 50 years until 1970. "For English women's football this is a great moment. Fittingly it is Germany, the European nation that for so long led the drive in professionalism and standards for women's football that stand in the way of England's history bid.

There is no question that the duo of Elijah Moore and Garrett Wilson has the potential to be something special. What should expectations be for the Elijah Moore/Garrett Wilson duo in 2022? Elijah Moore really came on toward the end of his season (shortened by injury). Garrett Wilson has equally high expectations. If he can tighten up his route running, the tools Garrett Wilson already has will make him a headache for defenses to cover.

The family had claimed that Zaheer Baloch, 26, went missing in October last year. Later it was claimed that he was killed by ‘‘security forces in Ziarat operation’’. He added that he was caught by Iranian forces after crossing the Taftan border point. Engineer Zaheer Baloch, who was claimed to have been killed during Ziarat operation by security forces, turned out to be alive, debunking the propaganda by self-interested elements in the name of 'missing persons'.

On Tuesday, Jesse Puljujarvi inked a one-year, $3 million contract ahead of his arb hearing, and with that bit of business out of the way, the question becomes whether Kailer Yamamoto follows suit. My guess is that Yamamoto signs a three-year deal with an AAV of around $3.5 million. Not only did Mattias clarify that the party was bumpin’ in the caption, but the look on his face says everything I needed to see. He’s basically what we hoped Lucic would be without looking like the NHL’s equivalent of Bowser in Mario Kart.
