What you need to know before markets open

Equities have been strong of late. The S&P 500 is up for 12 of the past 14 sessions, and all three major indexes are coming off five-week streaks of gains. Both the Dow and S&P closed at records on Monday, and the S&P is up more than 13% from a  intraday low hit in mid-October. Much of the rally has come on bets for more stimulus from central banks around the world, which is expected to continue supporting markets, though the swiftness of the gains since October could spur some profit taking.

4 Ways to Show Gratitude at Work (and Why You Should) - US News

2. Be humble.  Miles believes that if you’re a leader, you know down in your gut that what you’re leading doesn’t have much to do with you. He suggests you acknowledge that you’ve achieved your role, in part, because your team works hard and takes advantage of market opportunities. “Your team looks to you for leadership and for guidance, but when it comes down to the day-to-day wins and losses that actually make up your business, you need to know that those don’t have much to do with you," Miles says. "You need to be grateful for the team that powers the engine of your business.” Similarly, as a team member, recognize your role in ensuring your team continues to move forward. Be grateful for everyone around you, and don’t be shy about expressing appreciation.

All eyes on oil: What will OPEC do this week?

Experts who follow OPEC and the oil market closely are evenly split over in their bets on whether OPEC will vote to cut product. It will almost certainly come down to Saudi Arabia, which has refused to scale back production because it wants to squeeze its regional nemesis Iran, which is reeling from sanctions over its nuclear program.

5 Questions About the FDA Warning on Morcellators, Uterine Fibroids

The agency called for a boxed warning about morcellator’s overall risks, plus two “contraindications,” or specific situations where the device should not be used at all. The first group that shouldn’t undergo the procedure is women who have gone through or are transitioning into menopause, and women who could have tissue removed intact another way. Together that covers the majority of women with fibroids who undergo hysterectomy surgery. The agency also warned against using the device in any gynecologic surgery in which the tissue to be morcellated is known or suspected of being cancer. While the action allows morcellators to stay on the market, the move is expected to significantly curtail their use.

K2, which isn’t coming to the U.S., is an update on the previous K1 design launched two years ago. “It’s a bit like iPhones. What’s the next one?,” says MacKenzie. Whenever the next update to this kitchen design concept rolls out, it will likely be called K3.

Pope Describes Europe as ‘Elderly and Haggard’

Some are concerned about socialism ... by the way how does the Vatican, the Holy Roman Catholic Church get its money ... so the pope, cardinals, bishops and clergy can live tax free and in luxury. A bunch of clergy going round and round in circles, and half circles:  Nobody works!!!!  It was said that Hollywood was controlled by the Jews ... yet you can't find a motion picture without a handsome or beautiful nun doing good!!! And, then we have the Passion of the Christ where Christ is lugging an 8 foot cross, he is about 6 feet tall, and if put in the ground, Christ would be on his butt ... but not in Catholic Hollywood:  Ladies and Gentlemen, there he is 30 feet in the air!!!  No one, not even MIT could  build a cross that Christ was nailed/tied to ... because there was NO Cross ... as one Catholic priest said to me ... Bob, Catholic theater.  And Mary gave birth to Jesus, both Jews:  Mary is not Catholic and would never give birth to her kid in a barn .... Never, ever.

Yaroslav Markevich, another IT entrepreneur with a small company in Kharkiv, once a Soviet hub for aviation technology, presented a plan to the commander of one Ukrainian battalion to create a drone unit after hearing stories about the efficiency of Russian drones. The commander said yes, and by the time his battalion was deployed early this summer, it was the only one in the army equipped with a fleet of short- and long-range drones. Short-range drones are used to help guard roadblocks—they carry infrared-vision devices that detect approaching enemy soldiers at night—and long-range drones are used to locate artillery targets.

It previously agreed to sell leases for its Zellers discount chain stores to Target Corp. for about $1.8 billion in 2011 and sold its Toronto Queen Street location, its largest, for C$650 million ($577 million) earlier this year.

Americans Now Drink More Craft Beer Than Budweiser

On the other hand, it's also a very specific testament to the decline of Budweiser, which these days is basically a beer without a purpose. Twenty years ago, when Americans were less health-conscious and had more homogeneous tastes, selling a mass-market, midpriced lager designed to appeal to the largest possible demographic made lots sense. But now, it's a brand without a natural audience except for older Americans who drink it out of habit and maybe a nostalgic sense of brand loyalty. If you walk into a bar, there will almost always be a cheaper beer, a less caloric beer, and plenty of tastier beers on tap. And so it's not totally shocking that, by Anheuser-Busch Inbev's account, 44 percent of Americans between the ages of 21 and 27 have never tried a regular old Budweiser. It's not as if they're missing anything.

Stressed at Work? Blame Your Email.

Setting company or team policies can help, she said. Bosses should set clear expectations about response times – for example, that employees should respond within eight hours to a message received during the workday or within 48 hours to a message received on the weekend. Teams can also encourage workers to sift through their email at set periods during the day, leaving the other hours for uninterrupted work. Instead of requesting information “ASAP,” managers should spell out an exact deadline in their queries. And if a manager fires off a non-urgent email at 1 a.m., she should explain that she does not expect the recipient to respond right away.

To compensate, I’ll be writing a series of short blog posts explaining some of the ideas in that workshop, starting with a look at what I’m calling The Blockchain Application Stack.
