Shanghai Disneyland reopens with anti-virus controls
Visitors in face masks streamed into Shanghai Disneyland as the theme park reopened Monday in a high-profile step toward reviving tourism that was shut down by the coronavirus pandemic.To get more news about shanghai news, you can visit shine news official website.
The House of Mouse’s experience in Shanghai, the first of its parks to reopen, foreshadows hurdles global entertainment industries might face. Disney is limiting visitor numbers, requiring masks and checking for the virus’s telltale fever.
China, where the pandemic began in December, was the first country to reopen factories and other businesses after declaring the disease under control in March even as infections rise and controls are tightened in some other countries.
“We hope that today’s reopening serves as a beacon of light across the globe, providing hope and inspiration to everyone,” the president of Shanghai Disney Resort, Joe Schott, told reporters.
Tourism has been hit especially hard by controls imposed worldwide that shut down airline and cruise ship travel, theme parks and cinemas. Disney blamed a 91% plunge in its latest quarter profit on $1.4 billion in virus-related costs.
Shanghai Disneyland and Disney’s park in Hong Kong closed on Jan. 25 as China isolated cities with 60 million people to try to contain the outbreak. Tokyo Disneyland closed the following month and parks in the United States and Europe in March.China has allowed shops and offices to reopen but is keeping cinemas, bars, karaoke parlors and other businesses closed.
Disney guests, some wearing Mickey Mouse ears, and children in Little Mermaid, Mulan, Minnie Mouse and Snow White costumes were checked Monday for fever at the park gate and then walked down nearly empty lanes as employees waved to them. The company’s signature tune, “When You Wish Upon a Star,” played over loudspeakers.
“It really felt like a princess’s homecoming, especially when the staff lined up after the ticket check and said, ‘Welcome home!’,” said visitor Dilys Ding of Shanghai.“It feels like so many fewer people than normal. You don’t need to line up,” said Ding, 26. “You can play all the entertainment items at least once. That’s very good.”
Decals on sidewalks and at lines for attractions show visitors where to stand to leave space between themselves. The company said rides will be limited to one group of visitors per car to keep strangers apart.
“We don’t want people too close — front, back or side,” said Andrew Bolstein, the park’s senior vice president for operations.
The company said its plans were based on the experience of Disneytown, an adjacent shopping and entertainment facility that reopened earlier in the 1,000-acre (400-hectare) Shanghai Disney Resort.
Advance reservations are required and visitors are assigned times to enter. The company said earlier guest numbers will be limited to one-third of the usual daily level of 80,000 at the start and will gradually increase.
“Excited about the opening of the gate!” people in the first group of guests shouted as they entered the park at 9:30 a.m.Shanghai Disneyland, which opened in 2016, is a joint venture between Walt Disney Co. and a company owned by the Shanghai city government.
Disney has a 43% stake in the Shanghai Disney Resort, which includes the theme park, two hotels and Disneytown. The resort said earlier it attracted about 12 million guests last year and a total of 66 million since it opened.
Disney, headquartered in Burbank, California, said some outlets in Disney Springs, a shopping, dining and entertainment complex attached to the Disney World theme park in Florida will reopen this month. The company has yet to to set a date for reopening Disney World or its other parks worldwide.
Visitors to Shanghai Disney are required to show government-issued identification and use a smartphone app issued by the Shanghai city government that tracks their health and contacts with anyone who might have been exposed to he virus.
Herbal medicines can have dangerous side effects
The finding comes from a paper published in the Medical Journal of Australia on Monday. Researchers led by the University of Adelaide reviewed the findings from 52 studies of herbal medicines and toxicology.To get more news about herbal medicine, you can visit shine news official website.
The lead author of the review, pathology professor Roger Byard, said the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) should require independent testing of herbal medicines before placing them on the market, and that legal action should be considered when products did not comply with regulations. The products should also be closely monitored once on the market, he said.The government is implementing the findings of an independent review of the regulation of medicines, including complementary and alternative products. Harsher penalties are set to be introduced for manufacturers who make misleading or false claims.
“Toxic side effects of herbal medicines used in traditional societies have typically not been reported, and this is often cited in favour of their safety,” Byard said.
“However, the lack of systematic observation has meant that even serious adverse reactions, such as the kidney failure and liver damage caused by some plant species, have gone unrecognised until recently.”
The predominant users of herbal medicines in Australia are women under 35 with a tertiary education. Many users of herbal medicines do not tell their doctor they are taking the substances because they believe they are natural and therefore, not harmful, a co-author of the paper, pharmacology lecturer Ian Musgrave, said.But herbs can be a source of very potent toxins, and in fact many things we use as medicines derived from plants are toxic, poisoning predators,” he said.
“We can use these toxins in low concentrations in order to have useful medical effects. Some people believe that because herbal medicines derive from natural products that they are not drugs, but they are, and they have the potential to cause harm or to interact harmfully with prescription medications.”
Musgrave said he was also concerned that people could buy herbal products from overseas, some of which had been found to have been illegally adulterated with pharmaceuticals to increase the effectiveness of the herbal product.
A significant number of those products did not comply with Australian regulations and, in some cases, the ingredients were either not listed or their concentrations inaccurately reported.
Of herbal preparations from Taiwan assessed over a one-year period, 24% were found to contain prescription medicines. Other pharmaceuticals detected in herbal products include antibiotics, steroids and psychoactive drugs, the review found.Another study of traditional Chinese medicine products in Australia found excessive levels of lead, cadmium and arsenic in 61% of preparations, the review found, levels high enough to cause acute poisoning. Some preparations had been found to contain pesticides or contaminants associated with poor storage.
Many herbal products did not carry adequate warning labels about side effects and drug interactions, Musgrave said. There had been cases of Australians dying of liver failure following ingestion of herbal products, he said.
Saudi Wages Price War Against Russia in April
While Europe used to be the largest market for Russian oil exports, Saudi Arabia has recently sent a record number of oil tankers to Egypt. The shipment data compiled by Bloomberg shows that as of March, Saudis daily oil exports to Egypt reached 1.3 million barrels, the highest level in at least 3 years.To get more news about Saudi Wages, you can visit wikifx news official website.
The freights will be shipped to a terminal at the southern end of Suez Canal, where theyll be further transferred to the storage and exportation facilities in the Mediterranean region.
At the beginning of March, Saudi already began cutting official price of oil exported to Europe by an unprecedented level, which makes the actual price of oil sold to Europe to be US$10 / barrel.
As the global oil demand is experiencing a historical slump(down by 26 million barrel per day, according to statistics from Goldman Sachs), European oil plants are reducing their output to avoid excessive inventory.
But Saudis ramping up of crude export to Europe can slash Russian oil export by 1 million barrels per day.
The greatest challenge facing Russian oil industry is the permanent loss of capacity after part of the producers with higher costs are crushed by Saudi‘s move. A HFI research estimates that about 10% of Russian’s oil producing capacity will be lost irreversibly and Russias daily output will reduce by 500 thousand to 1 million barrels permanently.
The energy sector is seeing perhaps one of the most frantic moments in history, with the pricing getting out of control.
Alert! Scam Broker OlympusFx Is Still Alive in Asia
Recently, many countries have implemented the policy of home quarantine. “Working from home” and “online investment” have become the best choices for most people. However, during this period of time, online financial scams have also become rampant. In the forex market, quite a number of illegal brokers use the internet to post false advertisements, inflict unjustified trading losses on investors and delay withdrawals. These problems happen so frequently that complaints from victims of the scams never stop.To get more news about OlympusFx, you can visit wikifx news official website.
Recently, WikiFX exposure channel received complaints from Asia investors against OlympusFx, the main problems being unjustified losses and withdrawal failures. A withdrawal of one of the investors has been postponed for nearly 2 years! The humble investor told WikiFX that due to the lack of practical experience in the forex market, he deposited 1,000 US dollars at OlympusFx, a platform recommended by his acquaintance. But, after real-account trading he found that the trading environment was terrible, and the spread was ridiculously high. In the end, he almost lost all his money.
Platforms like OlympusFx have robbed tens of thousands of grassroots-investors. Now, OlympusFx is still cheating more people under the excuse that they have “left Chinese market and thus unable to process the withdrawals”. Once again, WikiFX reminds you to stay away from this broker and be alert! For investors who have been defrauded, please keep the evidences and contact WikiFX to get assistance in defending your right!
Per investigation, we found that the score of OlympusFx is only 1.22 on WikiFX APP. The broker is an offshore-broker registered in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, currently without valid regulation and bearing great risks.

PTFX NO. 1 Scammer Defrauded Investors with the “Malaysia Dato” Title!
Last year, illegal broker PTFX ran away after blowing up all the accounts of its users, leaving the entire FX market astonished. The number of victims reached 2 millions very shortly, and many of them became homeless and debt ridden just overnight. Although PTFX has crashed, its former staff are still out there relentlessly defrauding investors under the name of other companies. With PTFX under investigation, Huang ZhiMing, the NO. 1 scammer of PTFX, has been exposed to the public.To get more news about Malaysia Dato, you can visit wikifx news official website.
We learned that while working for PTFX, Huang also signed contracts with several forex companies, including Leighton Futures and JCI. He claimed to have received the title of "Malaysia Dato" while calling himself the “Asia’s No.1 trader”. According to Huang, investors can get 100% profits guaranteed in trading under his help, with a 1% minimum weekly dividend and even greater return proportional to the deposit.
But were his claims real？ Or were they simply tales he used to scam gullible investors across Southeast Asia？
Not long ago, WikiFX revealed that Leighton Futures was a lame Ponzi scheme that has been blocking withdrawals for a long time. The forex investment project launched by the broker was suspected to be a pyramid scheme, and Huang Zhiming was the trader who ran this project. Interestingly, not long after Leighton Futures collapsed, JCI, another forex company which signed contract with Huang Zhiming, also had a large number of customer complaints for much-delayed withdrawals and pyramid schemes. Currently, some victims of JCI have called the police!
Per checking WikiFX, we found that the illegal broker JCI, rated at only 1.06 on WikiFX App, is without any valid regulation and involves pyramid scheme. In addition, the broker doesn’t use MT4/MT5 software and has been in business for less than 1 year, bearing tremendous risks.
We may conclude from the above information that although with different names, Leighton Futures and JCI, together with PTFX, have been defrauding investors with similar tricks. This suggests that PTFX as well as scammers like Huang may still be lurking around, so investors should definitely watch out for them.
So far, WikiFX App has included profiles of more than 17,000 forex brokers around the world, while integrating broker information query, exposure, news feed and other functions, offering better protections for your assets.
USD’s Proportion in Global Foreign Reserve Continues to Decline
The recent data from International Monetary Fund shows that in Q4, 2019, the dollars share in global foreign reserves reported by the IMF dropped to 60.8% compared to the previous quarter, falling for the second straight quarter.To get more news about USD’s Proportion, you can visit wikifx news official website.
As the number of confirmed cases continues to rise, the United States has now become the epicenter of the global coronavirus outbreak. Before the large-scale outbreak in the United States, due to the spread of the virus across the world and the consequent interruption of global supply chain, US stocks promptly responded with a heavy slump that triggered trading curb four times in just a few weeks, with the S&P 500 index tumbling by 20% from the highest point with unprecedented speed.
Under bailout pressure, the Fed took swift actions within a short period by first adopting zero interest rate and then launching large-scale quantitative easing, with a speed and intensity far beyond the interpretation of traditional currency theories and expectations from the market. While the Fed's policies have been somewhat effective in the short term, some experts pointed out that the series of approaches are essentially printing US dollars recklessly which will lead to dollar's depreciation, dividing the cost of market rescue efforts on the world. Experts warn that from historical experience, excessive quantitative easing is currency devaluation which “beggar-thy-neighbor”, boosting hidden risks of global inflation.
In fact, the Feds monetary policies have still failed to achieve satisfactory results, and the US government has no choice but to issue another US$2 trillion fiscal stimulus bill. Obviously, huge fiscal stimulus will seriously threaten the sustainability of US government debt, and as the number of unemployed people increases, the extreme gap between rich and poor will greatly reduce US society's resilience to economic shocks.
Some analysts pointed out that after this round of crisis, the US dollar's share in the international currency reserve may decline further.
On the other hand, data previously released by the IMF showed that while the share of the dollar has fallen, the share of the Renminbi in global foreign exchange reserves has risen. In the fourth quarter of 2019, global foreign exchange reserves increased to US$11.829 trillion, up 1.5% from the previous quarter and more than 3% from the fourth quarter of 2018. These include RMB assets worth of about US$202.79 billion, accounting for 1.89% of the global official foreign exchange reserve assets and surpassing the share of Aussie dollar (1.62 and Canadian dollar (1.84.
With previous epicenters Wuhan and Hubei Province ending their lockdown restrictions, China is accelerating resumption of production; the Chinese government has relatively greater fiscal space, and coupled with significant reduction in leverage over the past four years, the RMB assets' overall performance is relatively stable, showing the characteristics of safe-haven assets.
Analysts pointed out that China's current national bond yields are higher, therefore more attractive to international investors, and the RMB exchange rate will remain on the track of appreciation in the long-term.
Broker Cleared Investor’s Profiting Order due to “Wrong Quote”
The coronavirus epidemic in 2020 has been a “black swan” event in the financial market, tempting many forex investors to try their luck in a time of high market volatility. While it's natural to see both gains and losses in trading, what upsets investors most is not loss, but the failure to pocket expected profits. Recently, an investor exposed the illegal broker Trader's Way to WikiFX, accusing the broker of deleting profitable trading orders with the excuse of “pricing error”.To get more news about Wrong Quote, you can visit wikifx news official website.
The investor in this case has 5 years of trading experience so far, well-versed in ECN trading with a good grasp of trading strategies. However, trading at the platform Trader's Way turned out to be a flop on his investment path.
According to the investor, all of his profitable positions were invalidated by the platform within just three days due to alleged “pricing error”. On the first day, his account made a profit of US$9,500, but the trading record was inexplicably deleted. This left the investor with only a small balance available for trading the next day, when he made nearly US$13,000 at one point. But again the trading record was erased. Fortunately, the investor kept all relevant trading information such as charts and prices when he traded, thus being able to have a well-grounded debate with the broker. But when investor questioned the broker, the latter explained plainly that the platform experienced “pricing errors” during periods of intense market volatility.
The veteran investor was, of course, not convinced by such an excuse. The event continues to evolve, and the illegal broker, battered by the persistent questioning of investor, no longer tried to justify their practice. WikiFX is still following updates of this event.According to its official website, Trader's Way was established by a group of financial market professionals. The broker has no minimum requirement for the margin and offers leverage of up to 1: 1000 (this also explains why the investor made profits so quickly). But through investigation, WikiFX found that the broker has suspicious regulatory information.
According to WikiFX App, Trader's Way is currently without valid regulatory status, rated at only 1.77. WikiFX suggests investors to stay away from this unreliable broker. Up to now, WikiFX App has included profiles of more than 17,000 global forex brokers. If you have any question about a broker's qualification, you may check the broker's profile on WikiFX App. WikiFX has also released the new feature of “Wiki Fair”, a forum where investors can discuss forex trend and expose illegal brokers.

Winning lottery ticket spent two weeks forgotten on seat of truck
A North Carolina man said a forgotten lottery ticket sat untouched on the seat of his truck for two weeks before he found out it was a nearly $500,000 winner.Get more news about 菲律宾彩票包网公司,you can vist loto98.com
Albert Belk told North Carolina Education Lottery officials he bought a Cash 5 ticket for the April 30 drawing and put it on the seat of his truck, where it was forgotten while he remained at home amid the COVID-19 pandemic.Belk said it wasn't until two weeks later, when he made a trip to the Hop In & Out store in Lexington to buy a Mega Millions ticket, that he noticed the forgotten Cash 5 ticket still on the seat of his vehicle.
He took the ticket into the store, where he scanned it on the machine and discovered it was a $468,052 jackpot winner.
"I was thinking, 'This is great,'" Belk recalled. "Real exciting."
Belk, who claimed his prize Tuesday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh, said some of the money will go toward buying his wife a 2018 Cadillac CT6 and doing some home improvement projects. He said the rest will go into savings.
