One More Reason to Buy Micron Technology Stock

Micron Technology (NASDAQ:MU) investors are likely worried after the company announced that its business will take a hit on account of lower information technology (IT) infrastructure spending and restricted shipments to Huawei.

Management’s guidance for the current quarter was muted, sowing seeds of uncertainty about the direction the memory market might take in the coming months. But the memory specialist is sitting on lucrative tailwinds such as the growth of 5G wireless networks that could help the company regain its mojo. And now, Micron investors can count on another potential boost in the form of a rebounding PC (personal computer) market.

Remember These Things before Obtaining an IM Spy App

Technology development in this current era has totally transformed the face of communication. Instant messaging applications such as WhatsApp, Facebook, Viber, KIK, Hike, and others have made it effortless for us to interact with each other. 

They enable us to send text messages, pictures, videos, documents, location and enjoy voice and video calling as well. Even though they are truly useful, but they also have drawbacks. 

The biggest downfall of them is that they have user-friendly nature, so nasty people can use them with the motive of stealing people’s confidential information. They can later misuse it to get some money. Their main targets are innocent children and youngsters. First, they win their hearts and then, pressurize them to perform illegal activities. 

To avoid such incidents, parents and employers choose to track their children’s and employees’ deeds on IM applications. Furthermore, there are many cases when they prefer using TheOneSpy android Read More

Mixed day for global stocks amid troubles with Brexit, US tech

World stock markets were mixed Friday as European traders mulled Britain’s increasingly acrimonious war dance with the EU, while in the United States technology shares continued to pull back.

Sterling remained under pressure as Britain sparred with Brussels, rejecting an ultimatum to withdraw controversial Brexit legislation but agreeing to extend talks next week.

On the plus side for British industry, a stuttering currency — which hauled itself off multi-month midweek lows — has been helping to boost share prices of index multinational’s earnings in dollars.

Those increases helped London’s FTSE index gain ground on Friday.

After Thursday’s sterling selloff, the pound was stable on Friday amid news the British economy expanded 6.6 percent — albeit still well off pre-coronavirus levels.

“Ultimately UK investors will probably thank the UK government for pushing down sterling and allowing the FTSE the room to recover 6000 (points),” said Chris Beauchamp, chief market analyst at

Lights on the track are helping runners shatter world records

Advancements in shoe technology have garnered headlines and stirred controversy recently for the way they boost performance. But three vaunted world records have fallen in recent weeks thanks in part to wavelight technology, a system of flashing lights that helps runners keep pace with record times.

There are no plans to use the lights at high-profile events such as the Olympics or world championships, where runners angle more for titles than for records. But the lights have been deployed in a handful of a single-day meets this year at which chasing world records was the primary target, generating buzz among fans, coaches and analysts.

Some appreciate the visual cues when watching on television or a computer. Others worry that the runners are benefiting from an artificial aid that wasn’t available to previous generations.

“If our activity is sport, our business is entertainment,” Sebastian Coe, president of World Athletics, the global

Coronavirus surge, renewed lockdowns fan fresh worries about global fuel demand

By Ahmad Ghaddar, Stephanie Kelly and Laura Sanicola

LONDON/NEW YORK (Reuters) – Surges in coronavirus infections are slowing a recovery in fuel use from the doldrums of lockdowns in the United States and other countries, raising concern it could be years before consumption rebounds from the impact of the pandemic.

Global fuel demand fell by around a quarter at the peak of the lockdowns, when over 4 billion people worldwide were asked to stay at home. The unprecedented decline in demand forced producers to make record output cuts and pump hundreds of millions of barrels of oil into storage.

Fuel consumption and oil prices had recovered some ground as governments relaxed restrictions on population movements and the output cuts stemmed the glut.

That recovery is stalling, however, as infections swing upward in top fuel consumer the United States, as well as in other major economies such as Brazil and India.
