Conflicting reports arose for 2020 about the relevance of a certain closet staple — skinny jeans.

Conflicting reports arose for 2020 about the relevance of a certain closet staple — skinny jeans. Some fashion experts vote “in” because of their universally flattering versatility. Others, such as Bobby Schuessler of WhoWhatWear, explained that skinny jeans should stay in the back of your closet to make way for nostalgic styles like flares coming into the forefront. We wanted to set the record straight and in doing so, saw great points on both sides of the argument. We came to the conclusion that skinny jeans can never truly be “out,” sometimes they just need a refresher. To further highlight our point of view, we paired some of our favorite skinny jean styles with Fall/Winter 2020 trends, courtesy of local boutiques. Sage Oversized Coat, $110. BB Dakota Sweater, $64, Vervet Jeans, $64. Available at Hailee Grace Boutique. Ora Et Labora Large Bead Necklace, $85. Available online and at Modern Nomad. Converse High Tops, Stylist’s Own. Hair Accessories, worn throughout, $10. Available at Vida Salon Cherry Creek. The Lowdown: This winter, the bigger the coat, the better. An oversized jacket balanced out the skinny silhouette of these jeans, while the distressing and throwback high ...

Optical Transceivers Market to Witness Increased Incremental Dollar Opportunity During the Forecast Period (2015-2021)

Transceiver is a device that performs both transmission and reception of signals with a common circuitry over a network. An optical transceiver, also called as fiber optic transmitter and receiver, completes the operation of transmission by converting the electrical signal in light pulse and vice versa at the receiving end. In case of fiber optics, the information is sent in the form of light pulses. The light pulses need to be converted into electrical signals in order to be used by an electronic device. This photoelectric conversion is carried by the optical module equipped at the end terminals of the network. The light from the end of connecting cable is coupled to the receiver, where a detector carries the conversion of the light signal back into an equivalent electrical signal. A laser diode or a light emitting diode (LED) is used as the light source for transmission of information. There are numerous ; modules available in the market differing in the type of data transmission speed, connections and packing forms. Some of the types of optical transceivers available in the market include SFP, SFP+, X2, XFP, Xenpak, GBIC and others. Furthermore, as per the type of connection,...

Long-term agri productivity gap: The major cause of poverty

Why is national poverty incidence in the Philippines more than twice that of ASEAN peers — Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam? It is even magnified in the farmers’ and fishers’ poverty of 34%. Thesis: it is due to broad-based low productivity and concentration on few products. To provide empirical evidence, the productivity of key crops over the past 36 years were compared and gaps determined using data from the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). Ten major crops were covered, namely: rice, corn, coconut, sugarcane, banana, coffee, pineapple, cassava, sweet potato, and rubber. A key finding is that the Philippines trails its peers in all crops, except pineapple and banana. Thanks to the private sector for these competitive industries. The gaps even widened over time in most crops. • Rice: Vietnam yields are higher with the help of the all-year irrigation drawn from the Mekong River. About a third of Philippine rice harvested areas are rainfed. Irrigated rice yield was 4.3tons/ha in 2016. Caveat. Before some sectors advocate irrigating the remaining irrigable area of 1.3 million hectares, they must consider water supply availability and project cost. The landmark DA-...

The 2 Reasons I’m Keeping Netflix (and Investors Won’t Like Either One)

Founded in 1993 by brothers Tom and David Gardner, The Motley Fool helps millions of people attain financial freedom through our website, podcasts, books, newspaper column, radio show, and premium investing services. Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) used to have a series of shows set in the Marvel universe. I watched Jessica Jones with my wife, loved Daredevil, enjoyed Luke Cage, watched The Punisher, and really liked The Defenders. My wife and I also watched Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt together, and she watched Orange Is the New Black and House of Cards on her own. All of those shows are over — either canceled or finished running their course. I no longer have any shows I specifically watch on Netflix (though I enjoy the occasional comedy special). My wife and son would probably watch a new season of Stranger Things, but when that show will come back for its final season remains unknown. By all logic, I should probably cancel Netflix. We have Walt Disney’s (NYSE:DIS) Disney+ and get access to HBO (and the upcoming HBO Max) through our cable subscription. I keep Netflix not because it’s useful to me, but because of two reasons that won’t be very comforting to investor...

Wider Image: Portraits from the frontlines of global protests | News

(Reuters) – Protests swept the globe in 2019, with millions of people taking to the streets from Catalonia to Colombia, Haiti to Hong Kong. Each movement had its own trigger. Some were fed up with corruption and entrenched elites. Others wanted democracy or independence. Some called for reforms and others opposed them. Worries over climate change and environmental destruction also galvanized activists worldwide. The frustrations were sometimes similar, from inequality to powerlessness. Often the protests turned violent, with security forces killing several hundred people in Iran, Iraq and elsewhere. Volleys of tear gas became a familiar sight in traditionally peaceful and stable Hong Kong. Yet amid the gunfire and clouds of tear gas, there was a global solidarity as demonstrators drew on each other’s determination and strength. Reuters photographers in more than a dozen countries documented the depth of feeling that linked disparate movements. “Right now we are in a stage of awakening and we have to take advantage of that,” said Andres Felipe Vargas, a professor joining an anti-government strike in Bogota, Colombia. “What is happening in our countr...
