  5. A US man was left shocked after discovering the fluid leaking out of his nose wasn't from his sinuses, but his brain. Greg Phillpotts had struggled with a running nose for several months before he eventually made it to the doctor earlier this year, ABC reports. The fluid had dripped from his nose constantly, including at one point into his family's Thanksgiving dinner, ruining it completely. "You could be anywhere. You could be on the airplane, you could be talking to anybody and this thing just drains out of your face," he said. Doctors diagnosed him with pneumonia and bronchitis, and coughing and spluttering became the new normal until things reached fever pitch in February. "I was up all night coughing. You're sitting here, you're a family man; you don't want to check out of the picture when it's something someone could readily fix," he told ABC Mr Phillpotts went to New York's Mount Sinai Hospital, where doctors quickly realised what was coming out of his nose was actually cerebrospinal fluid. "It's the leakage of fluid that surrounds the brain to cushion it primarily to protect it from shock or trauma or anything like that," Dr Alfred Iloreta told ABC. "Sometimes when you have this leakage of the fluid from the brain, it can evolve into what we call an ascending infection. So bacteria can travel from the nose to the brain resulting in meningitis." It only took a small surgery to sort out the drip, and Mr Phillpotts said he's now very relieved its gone. Dr Iloreta said to keep an eye on fluids coming out of only one side of your nose, especially if there's a salty taste with it and you have an intense headache. https://www.msn.com/en-sg/news/world/mans-runny-nose-turns-out-to-be-brain-fluid/ar-BBPOpC2?li
  6. Facebook investors have called on the company’s chief executive Mark Zuckerberg to step down as chairman, following reports that the company hired a public relations firm to smear its critics by drawing links to George Soros. The attack on Mr Zuckerberg is set to complicate the daunting challenge facing Sir Nick Clegg, Facebook's new global head of policy and communications, who joined last month and has been asked to conduct a review of Facebook's use of lobbying firms. Jonas Kron, a senior vice president at Trillium Asset Management, a US investor which owns an £8.5m stake in Facebook, last night called on Mr Zuckerberg to step down as board chairman in the wake of the report. “Facebook is behaving like it's a special snowflake,” he said. “It's not. It is a company and companies need to have a separation of chair and CEO.” Both Mr Zuckerberg and Sir Nick have been under pressure following reports Facebook hired Definers, a Republican public relations firm, to help repair its battered reputation following intense criticism of the social media platform's handling of a scandal over Russian interference in the 2016 US elections and the Cambridge Analytica scandal. Definers allegedly encouraged the depiction of Facebook's critics as anti-Semites and had published news articles criticising Facebook’s competitors. The business has also been accused of attempting to encourage journalists to report that anti-Facebook groups were linked to Mr Soros. In a call with journalists on Thursday, Mr Zuckerberg denied knowing that his business had hired the firm. “As soon as I learned about this, I talked to our team and we are no longer working with this firm,” he said. He has also asked Sir Nick to launch a review of Facebook's use of political lobbying firms. Nevertheless, Mr Kron said the new revelations about Facebook's use of Definers offered fresh reasons for Mr Zuckerberg to relinquish his dual role as chairman and chief executive. “The latest report should remove any lingering doubts that some may have had,” he said. Mr Zuckerberg has retained a high level of control over the social networking business which he founded in 2004 due to his combined role and his ownership of a stake representing 60pc of the company’s voting shares. Investors claim that Mr Clegg faces a difficult task repairing Facebook's reputation due to his unfamiliarity with Silicon Valley. Julie Goodridge, chief executive of Facebook investor NorthStar Asset Management which owns over 50,000 shares in the company, called the appointment of Mr Clegg to investigate Facebook’s lobbying “crazy.” “I don't think you can appoint someone who is essentially still subservient to the board and subservient to top level management,” she said. “You can't expect that person to come in and really have the kind of power that Zuckerberg, Sandberg, Peter Thiel and the other board members have. What powers is this guy really going to have?” Mr Kron said he was pleased that Mr Clegg would review Facebook’s lobbying efforts, but added that the move was “insufficient.” He characterised the appointment of Mr Clegg as a “whack-a-mole” move by Facebook which didn’t address the larger issue of a lack of an independent board chair. In the call on Thursday evening, Mr Zuckerberg said that he had asked Sir Nick to review the business’ lobbying operations. The former Deputy Prime Minister will report to Facebook’s chief operating officer, Sheryl Sandberg. Facebook investor Natasha Lamb, a managing partner at Arjuna Capital, warned that the combined role of chairman and chief executive means that Facebook can avoid properly fixing problems inside the company. .“That concentration of power creates a lot of defensiveness within the company,” she said. “It’s an exercise in hiding that there is a problem rather than admitting that there is a problem and setting a roadmap to fixing it.” Ms Goodridge warned that if Mr Zuckerberg stands down as chairman, Facebook’s share price is likely to drop. She called for a change in Mr Zuckerberg’s Class B voting shares, which have 10 votes per share rather than the single vote for each Class A share. “Regardless of who shows up at board meetings, Mark still has all the power to control the company,” she said. A combined chief executive and chairman role has become common in Silicon Valley as it allows founders to retain control of businesses, even after they go public. Elon Musk held both roles at electric car manufacturer Tesla until an agreement with the US Securities and Exchange Commission in October forced the company to appoint a separate board chairman. https://www.msn.com/en-sg/money/companies/facebook-investors-call-on-mark-zuckerberg-to-resign-as-chairman-following-damaging-report/ar-BBPNWU9?li
  7. PORT MORESBY, Nov 17 — Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said today that he had opposed his predecessor Datuk Seri Najib Razak for giving away thousands of acres of land to foreigners to urbanise and live in. Dr Mahathir said his administration instead would do something else and allow foreigners to enter Malaysia’s industrial parks, where they can buy land and construct and own the buildings. “That’s different,” Dr Mahathir told Malaysian media at the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) 2018 Summit at the Papua New Guinea capital here today. “I fought Najib because he gave away so much of our land and asked them to create cities. We can build our own cities. No need for others to do. “How many companies do we have now? There is Glomac and all. Malays already know how to create cities.” Dr Mahathir did not make any specific reference, though he has previously criticised Forest City, a massive property project by a Chinese developer in Johor. The prime minister, who met American business leaders at Apec earlier today, also said they were interested in investing in Malaysia, but were unsure if the Malaysian government would treat them well. “The reason why I met them was to explain our policies and to tell them that we are still business friendly.” https://www.malaymail.com/s/1694508/no-need-for-foreigners-as-malays-know-how-to-create-cities-dr-m-tells-najib

  10. The sneaker that started the Boost craze is coming back. Adidas is set to rerelease the Ultra Boost 1.0 next month in its debut black and purple colorway. The style arrives Dec. 1. But the company isn’t just releasing the first colorway; it’s dropping other beloved iterations of the style the first week of December in an event it’s calling Boost Week. Other versions of the shoe will become available throughout the week, ending Dec. 7. The looks include a pair of college colorways (Miami’s “The U” and Texas A&M’s “Gig’em”), “Triple Black,” “Liberty,” “Laser Red” and “Dark Granite,” “Light Granite” and the women’s-only “Ash Pearl.” The Three Stripes website is hinting that the availability of the kicks will be limited, stating the looks “won’t last long.” The sneakers will all come with a $180 price tag. All will be available via Adidas.com.
  11. Many of Singapore's emerging affluent segment are trying to achieve their top financial goals by placing their assets in lower-yielding products like bank deposits, according to a new survey. It found that 58 per cent of those polled here use savings accounts as their preferred method to reach their financial goals, higher than the global average of 49 per cent. This may explain why 25 per cent of Singapore respondents feel they are far from hitting those goals, noted Standard Chartered Bank, which polled 11,000 emerging affluent consumers from 11 markets across Asia, Africa and the Middle East, including 1,000 here. The emerging affluent are those aged 21 to 55, with an annual income ranging from $60,000 to $192,000. The annual study said 44 per cent of people surveyed here cite children's education as their main goal; 22 per cent of them say it is an investment property; while 22 per cent want funds to set up their own business. One in two of Singapore's emerging affluent in the 35 to 44 age bracket says children's education is the top financial goal. CHOICE OF INVESTMENT INSTRUMENTS Other than savings accounts, respondents also favour other products to achieve their top financial goals. Around 21 per cent use fixed deposits, 17 per cent cite equity investments, and 15 per cent favour mutual funds. Around 54 per cent of Singapore's emerging affluent consumers also say they do not have an investment strategy. They say they either do not know which product to pick, or believe they do not have sufficient financial knowledge to even try. Digital money management is gaining popularity, with 65 per cent saying they feel like they have more control over their money, thanks to online banking. And 61 per cent say their familiarity with digital tools has been vital to their success. Singaporeans are also embracing digital wealth management. More than half say they would invest in financial products online with assistance from an adviser, while the same number would accept a high level of risk for a high level of return when investing online. The findings suggest that even as respondents increasingly rely on digital means to grow their wealth, they believe that advice from a trusted adviser is key to achieving their goals. HIGH EXPECTATIONS OF SALARY INCREASE Only 16 per cent of respondents say their salary had increased significantly - by 50 per cent or more - over the past five years, while 33 per cent expect significant increases in the next five years. With such high and possibly unrealistic expectations, it is not surprising that 44 per cent of those surveyed say their strategy to meet financial goals is career progression and salary increases. Mr Andrew Chia, head of retail banking at StanChart Singapore, said: "Emerging affluent consumers may find that over-reliance on savings accounts and earnings risks delaying the achievement of financial goals." https://www.straitstimes.com/business/invest/58-of-emerging-rich-here-rely-on-bank-savings-to-hit-goals-poll
