Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin With kid-friendly hotels being something of a rarity in this cluster of the French Alps' Trois Vallées, when you stumble upon one that caters to the whole family, it's worth taking notice. I remember my first time here when the hotel first opened back in 2016. I was taken aback then, as I was during my most recent stay, by the snow-covered fairy tale chalet exteriors and the magical mountain views from every room of French hospitality group Barrière’s Les Neiges Hotel. Back then, as is often the case with inaugurations, paint was still fresh, light switches still being fixed to walls and there had been an unfortunate incident where the pool fell in through the ceiling - all business as usual when you're opening a new hotel. So six years on, I was happy to be able to see the finished, lived-in spaces of the hotel, which despite it having been some years, looks sparkling new with all the trimmings you and your kids could wish … [Read more...] about Why Barrière Les Neiges Hotel Is The Best Place To Stay With Kids In Courchevel
Super Bowl champion, Eli Manning, joins the show in just a little bit, but roll down the window because sentiment stinks right now in the stock market. U.S. equity markets are coming off their worst week in nearly two years and headed for more losses as we start the week. Netflix, one of the best performing stocks of the past 10 years, fell nearly 22% on Friday, its worst day since 2012. Shares of Amazon posted their worst week since 2018, and they're down 20% from all time highs.

PARIS/YANGON, Jan 22 (AFP): The announcements Friday by TotalEnergies and Chevron have swelled the ranks of foreign firms that have quit Myanmar after the February military coup. As the civilian death toll from the military crackdown has surpassed 1,500 people, activists have ratcheted up pressure on foreign firms. Investors piled into the country after the military relaxed its iron grip in 2011, paving the way for democratic reforms and economic liberalisation in the country of more than 50 million people. They poured money into telecommunications, infrastructure, manufacturing and construction projects. Now they face either pulling up sticks like TotalEnergies and Chevron, suspending operations, or continuing with business as usual. - Pulling up sticks - The decisions by TotalEnergies and Chevron to leave were significant, as the more than $1 billion in fees and taxes they paid to operate the Yadana gas field in the Andaman were Myanmar's single largest source of … [Read more...] about Myanmar: Growing number of foreign firms head for door

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin When the stock market is in turmoil, many investors are tempted to go to cash and wait for the dust to settle before getting back in. One of the issues here is how to time your exit and entry—unlike a flash flood or significant weather event, investors aren’t going to get an emergency alert on their phone when it’s time to take cover, run for the hills, or once it’s safe to return. Aside from the fact that in the financial markets, we only know this information in hindsight, the notion of going to cash until the market recovers also ignores another very real but less visible danger: missing out on the recovery. Stick it out or sell to cash? By way of example, here are three long-term investors who started to invest in 2006. For simplicity, this example doesn’t include the impact of taxes, inflation, and rebalancing. Dividends and capital gains assumed to be reinvested.

PTT Exploration and Production Plc of Thailand is one of three partners with majority operator Total of France in the Yadana natural gas field off the coast of Myanmar. (Handout photo via PTTEP) Myanmar’s military has received hundreds of millions of dollars from natural gas sales through a financial scheme linked to the Myanmar-Thailand pipeline, a French newspaper has reported. The French energy giant Total was implicated as one of the companies behind the “tax optimisation” scheme outlined by Le Monde . For two decades, money from gas shipments that should have been going to the Myanmar government has been going instead to shareholders of a military-linked company that is a partner in the pipeline operator, the newspaper said. Total has come under pressure from pro-democracy activists to “stop financing the junta” since the military coup in February that overthrew the elected government in Myanmar. Total said last month that it would not stop producing gas from the … [Read more...] about Myanmar military cashes in on Thai pipeline
