Boeing is still on a glide path to lower lows https://wvhgc.org/boeing-is-still-on-a-glide-path-to-lower-lows/ Wed, 27 Apr 2022 13:39:43 +0000 https://wvhgc.org/boeing-is-still-on-a-glide-path-to-lower-lows/ The Boeing Company (BA) released its first quarter results on Wednesday morning, which missed out on both earnings per share and revenue.

The Boeing Company (BA) released its first quarter results on Wednesday morning, which missed out on both earnings per share and revenue. Traders are early sellers and the stock is weaker at the start of trading. Let’s see what this means for charts and indicators.

In BA’s daily bar chart, below, we can see that stocks have been hitting lower highs and lower lows over the past 12 months. All rallies down the 200-day moving average line have failed. The slope of the 50-day line is also bearish and two recent rallies have failed this middle line.

The On-Balance-Volume (OBV) line shows a decline from June and tells us that BA sellers have been more aggressive than buyers for an extended period. The MACD (Moving Average Convergence Divergence) oscillator following the trend is bearish and points down.

In BA’s weekly Japanese candlestick chart below, we can see that stocks have been trending lower and are trading below the falling 40-week moving average. I can’t find any lower shadows to tell me that traders are finally rejecting the lows.

The weekly OBV line is pointing down. The MACD oscillator remains in a bearish alignment below the zero line.

In this daily dot-and-digit chart from BA, below, we can see a potential downside price target at the $151 area.

In this weekly Point and Figure chart from BA, below, we can see a price target of $148.

Basic strategy: We were bullish on BA trends on January 13, but the recovery has run out of steam and prices have fallen. Today the downtrend continues with new lows for the move down. Avoid the long side of BA. A better buying opportunity is likely in the coming months.

On Inglewood rapper D Smoke’s latest single, “Glide,” he soothes himself with reminders of his resilience. The track debuted Tuesday morning with a performance video on the popular minimalist music platform Colors.

Although the song begins with a cocky hook (“I look sexy when I walk in that bitch/I look sexy when I move around your town”), D Smoke goes on to recount moments of struggle and doubt. “Glide” stands as a monument of strength, most titanic when he embodies the encouragement of his mother: “You should know how to keep building your own bridge/And if you need anything, I got you /Chicken, greens, cornbread/And now when you sing it’ll be seasoned /They eat that shit down to the bone left/You will get it if you keep doing well /Even when everyone goes left.

Born Daniel Farris, D Smoke is the winner of Netflix’s 2019 rap reality contest Rhythm + Flow. The 36-year-old beat 29 MCs and impressed judges Cardi B, Chance the Rapper and TI to win the $250,000 prize (rather than, as you’d expect, a record deal). Her debut album, 2020s black habits (released via WoodWorks Records and Empire) earned him Grammy nominations for Best New Artist and Best Rap Album. His follow-up, War & Wonders, came out last September.

The young woman sports a focused gaze as she glides in graceful circles. She bends her knees as she walks on the ice, her posture remaining straight.

On this Monday afternoon, Cathy Williams is one of a dozen skaters sharing the ice rink at the Ice Arena Wales in Cardiff. Looking at it, you probably wouldn’t think there was anything out of the ordinary about this particular skater. That is, aside from her moving more elegantly than many others.

But Cathy is registered blind. The 19-year-old has a rare genetic condition called retinitis pigmentosa (RP), which causes the death of light-sensitive cells on the surface of the retina. Her understanding is that she was born with eyesight at about 50% of the normal level. It has since deteriorated to about 10%, and one day it will be completely gone.

In addition to her PR, Cathy has nystagmus, which causes her eyes to move uncontrollably and further reduce her vision. Her mum Alison says to me, “This is Cathy for you. She doesn’t do things by halves.”

Likewise, affectionate banter is fired freely between mother and daughter throughout the time we spend chatting at the rink. The Newport pair are irrepressibly upbeat and quick to laugh. What also immediately becomes clear is the fear Alison has for Cathy’s on-ice ability, which the mother admits was not inherited from her.

“The first time I went with Cathy, she didn’t fall once and I fell twice,” said the 46-year-old, who remembers hanging on to a fit aid penguin and took 20 minutes to complete a circuit. “It wasn’t for me at all.”



Cathy Williams at Ice Arena Wales

How is Cathy doing? “It’s pure hearing and feeling,” replies the teenager, accustomed to the incredulous questions of people to whom she tells of her passion for ice skating.

As she put on her skates in the locker room, she said, “These metal blades make such a special noise on the ice. When I’m outside, I have to listen to everything, like cars and traffic. Here, it’s just the blades and the voices of other skaters.”

The “feel” part is important so that Cathy knows exactly which part of the blades she is using at all times. The view plays a small role ⁠—the brightness of the light strips on the ceiling helps, as does the contrast of its black laces against the ice. Most of the other skaters are wearing blue boots, which stand out against the white surface and help Cathy avoid bumping into anyone.

Alison was not fazed when her daughter was diagnosed with RP. She was aware of the risk, given that Cathy’s father has the disease and the risk of it being passed on from a symptomatic parent is around 50%.

Even though Cathy didn’t receive an official diagnosis until she was four years old, Alison could tell she had vision problems even as a baby. “She was shaking her head all the time because she couldn’t focus her eyes. I called her Noddy.”

Cathy says: “When I was 13 or 14 I was really depressed because I started losing sight a lot at that point. to live.”

She had tried going to the gym as a teenager, but only found a physical activity she enjoyed in 2018, thanks to a chance conversation with her friend Rachel. “One day Rachel was ice skating with her friend and I said, ‘Can I come?’ And she was like, ‘Of course.’

“It started from there. The first time I went there, I had a few falls. But I really had fun and kept coming back. Here, it doesn’t matter that I can’t see.”

As we walk from the locker room to the rink, a Little Mix song blares from the speakers, but Cathy tells me her sense of hearing will still be strong enough to hear the other skaters’ blades on the ice.

She launches onto the rink with fluidity, advancing with precision and determination. Slipping at one point, she gets up in seconds. Sitting next to me in the spectator area, a laughing Alison said, “You gotta get up right now or someone’s gonna take your fingers off.”

Although Alison jokes about the fall, she admits she gets nervous for her daughter. Cathy had already become an adept skater by the time Alison first saw her on the ice, but her motherly concern remains intact even now. “It scares me,” she says, as her eyes remain fixed on Cathy’s progress on the rink. “My heart is in my mouth all the time.”

But Alison is also immensely proud of her daughter, which is never more evident than when I ask her if she was surprised by Cathy’s talent. “I wasn’t surprised,” she says. “There are some things she can’t do, like drive, but there aren’t many.”

Cathy says independence is important to her. Since last year, she has been living alone in Bargoed, the town in Rhymney Valley where her boyfriend Chris lives. They have been together for four years and love to travel. Before Covid hit, they were enjoying vacations in Amsterdam, Brussels, Paris and Belfast.

For much of the pandemic, Ice Arena Wales was closed. Cathy says it was like losing a lifeline. “I remember waiting by the Alexa every time there was an announcement about the rules, waiting for them to say the rinks could reopen. It does wonders for my mental health.”

The majority of people with early RA like Cathy’s go completely blind by the age of 35, experts told her. “I will get there. It could happen tomorrow or in 50 or 60 years.”

Cathy refuses to let her condition prevent her from living her life to the full. When I ask her if she will continue to ice skate after losing her remaining vision, she says, “I hope I can. I love it so much. Even if it’s just staying close to the wall, I hope I can still do it.”

One of her ambitions is to do more volunteer work for the Guide Dogs charity. Cathy herself has been on a guide dog waiting list for three years. “Covid delayed it because they couldn’t train the dogs, but it could be anytime now,” she says. “It would help because if I’m on my own it’s a bit scary. When I collect for the charity in supermarkets, I tell people, ‘Your donation will help me get a dog.'”

After an hour at Ice Arena Wales, we emerge into the bright spring afternoon, which gives Cathy what she calls “Wotsits” in her eyes – floats of light similar to the famous puffs of corn. As she explains this, Alison offers her thoughts on the new range of Crispy Wotsits: “They literally taste like Nik Naks with cheese.”

“It’s shameful,” Cathy said with a smile, before Alison added, “The Wotsit Giants are the best.” The laughter and chatter continue as the couple head into the parking lot, side by side in the sunshine.

Glide Express Car Wash, which already has locations in the Memphis area including Germantown and Collierville, is looking to expand into Lakeland.

At the Municipal Planning Commission (MPC) meeting held last Thursday, March 17, draft plans were presented to council members for the new automated car wash. The location would be located next to eSportia Fitness on Highway 64 near I-40. Renderings show the facility would include a 115-foot automated car wash as well as 27 vacuum bays that would be covered in the elements.

Glide Express executives spoke to MPC members and said their car washes are considered some of the largest in the industry. “We’ve spent many painstaking hours researching the best gear from around the world,” said Glide representative Mr. Dillon Ward.

Ward also told MPC members that they partner with communities like Lakeland and work hard on those efforts. “We pride ourselves not only on the experience we provide, but also on the community activity that we try to participate in,” he said. He mentioned examples such as offering discounted prices for police officers, offering free car washes to all veterans on Veterans Day, and partnering with local schools for fundraisers.

Mayor Mike Cunningham said he is excited about the project and thinks there is a need in Lakeland. “I really think we need a quality car wash in Lakeland,” Mr Cunningham said. Commissioner Jim Atkinson agreed, saying, “I really think the site works, I think it’s good.

The plan will move forward for a final recommendation by the MPC before heading to the BOC for approval.

The best lubricant is important for a satisfying and safe sex life. Personal lubricant, or “lube” as it is commonly known, is a gel intended to reduce friction and discomfort during sex. It also reduces your risk of injury. If you use a condom, the lubricant also reduces the risk of it tearing or slipping off, increasing your protection against STIs, including HIV.

The vagina naturally produces lubrication that helps facilitate sexual activity. If natural lubrication isn’t enough, which may be due to hormonal fluctuations or menopause, then lube can really help. With anal penetration, this is a must, since the anus is not self-lubricating.

Not only does the lubricant reduce discomfort and potential infections, but it is also very pleasant. Its use can greatly enhance your pleasure and that of your partner. No wonder it’s considered a bedroom staple. Read on for our buying guide and roundup of the best lube to buy.

How to Choose the Best Lube for You

Basic course in lubricant

Although there are many lubricants on the market, not just any one will do. Indeed, not all lubricants are suitable for all sexual practices. In addition, using the wrong lubricant can have disastrous consequences.

There are a few basic lessons to learn when it comes to lube. They might not have taught you this in sex ed class at school, but luckily we’re here to rectify that.

The basic rules are:

  • Do not use oil-based lubricants such as baby oil, coconut oil or petroleum jelly with condoms as this can cause the condom to break.
  • Silicone-based lubes last longer and are ideal for anal sex.
  • Do not use silicone-based lubricant with silicone sex toys as it can degrade the material of the toy.
  • Water-based lube is by far the most versatile option. It can be used with any sex toy material and is condom compatible.

What lubricant should I buy?

Don’t opt ​​for the cheapest options as they will inevitably contain the cheapest ingredients. Most high quality lubes emphasize the fact that they are glycerin free. Glycerin has been linked to a higher risk of yeast infections according to a 2013 study, and many experts advise avoiding it as well if you are prone to frequent yeast infections. If this is your case, don’t worry: all of our suggested lubes are glycerin-free.

If you are fluid bound with your partner – that is, you don’t use barrier methods like condoms during sex and are happy to exchange bodily fluids with your partner – then oil-based lubes might be an option for you. They are suitable for people who want to use a lubricant with 100% natural ingredients. For those who use condoms and also want high-quality natural ingredients, then opt for an organic water-based lubricant. However, in this case, the ingredients will probably not be 100% natural.

If you enjoy anal sex, we recommend choosing a silicone-based lubricant as they tend to last longer. Flavored lubes may smell good, but they may also contain ingredients such as sugars that may not be vagina friendly. Make sure you don’t swallow anything more than an unintended amount unless it’s clearly labeled as an edible lubricant.

For those who are hygiene or discretion conscious, then a lubricant with a pre-filled applicator can be a great idea. The lubricant can be inserted into the vagina without being in contact with your hands. For more stimulating sensations such as a heating or cooling effect, opt for a stimulating lubricant. They can provide a tingling sensation to both partners and they can greatly enhance masturbation with fingers or a sex toy. However, as we mentioned above, avoid using silicone-based lubes with silicone sex toys.

If you want to use lube for a variety of purposes, a water-based lube is the most versatile option. It will serve many sexual scenarios, whether for solo use or with a partner.

How much should I spend?

As we mentioned earlier, don’t go for the cheapest options as their ingredients might not be the best. Many cheaper lubes contain glycerin, which might not be desirable. Another concern is the pH of the product. A healthy vaginal pH is around 3.8 to 4.5. There is concern that if the pH of the personal lubricant does not match this, it could upset the balance of healthy vaginal flora. You can get a decent, high-quality lube for between £6-15. Considering it feels great and you will be using it multiple times, it will be worth it.

Whichever type you choose, our selection includes lubricants from reputable brands that do not contain any harmful products. Read on to find out which one is best for you.
