Picture: Getty Images KaiDunn Extreme risk is not for everyone, says financial guru Peter Sharkey. Although many people get fed up with emails asking if they can spare five minutes to answer a questionnaire, opinions and attitudes matter a lot nowadays which explains why surveys and their results are so valued. Of course, if they're to be of any use, surveys must be well constructed and taken seriously. A few years ago, a friend designed a questionnaire for his staff as part of a health and safety exercise. One question asked, “If a fire started in the building in which you were working, what steps would you take?” The response from one person was: “Very big ones”.

TWO young "Mowgli" boys and a cat "living in feral conditions" have been rescued from a filthy home littered with cigarette butts in central Ukraine. The children, aged 4 and 1, lived in a dirty flat in "socially dangerous conditions" according to police in the city of Cherkasy. The severely neglected boys were found by chance in the Cherkasy Oblast region, after the oldest boy, Aleksey, 4, was spotted looking for food in the street. Some passers-by called the police after they saw him wandering alone in dirty clothes and delving into rubbish bins. Unable to speak properly, Aleksey could not tell the cops where his mother was but led them to his home. The front door of the family’s flat was open. Inside the officers saw Aleksey’s one-year-old brother Danya crawling naked on the floor, crying and calling his mum. Examining the kitchen, the cops found no food and a completely empty fridge. Children’s toys, rubbish and cigarette butts were covering the floor, which was … [Read more...] about Two ‘Mowgli’ boys, 4 and 1, found living in feral conditions with a cat in Ukraine

China should seek stable development of its economy while not forgetting to fend off risks to its financial system, Chinese President Xi Jinping said, state news agency Xinhua reported on Saturday, Trend reports referring to Reuters. China’s economy is growing at its slowest pace in almost 30 years, spurring policymakers to bolster growth by easing credit conditions and cutting taxes. On Wednesday, Premier Li Keqiang reiterated that China would not resort to “flood-like” stimulus such as it unleashed in past downturns. But after a spate of weak data, investors are asking if Beijing needs to speed or boost support to reduce the risk of a sharper slowdown. Until now, China has refrained from cutting benchmark interest rates to spur the slowing economy, which would ease financing costs but risk adding to a mountain of debt. To free up more funds for lending to small and private businesses, the central bank has cut the reserves that banks need to set aside five times in … [Read more...] about China’s Xi urges financial risk prevention while seeking stable growth
