John Wayne exhibition canceled after the massive anti racist protest! Check out for more updates.

Considering the ongoing Black Lives Matter fights, calls have been made to audit certain verifiable figures extending from US presidents, slave dealers, and now actors. Presently the University of Southern California is evacuating a display on Wild West on-screen character John Wayne.

Wayne died in 1979, said he didn’t feel remorseful about subjugation, and guaranteed Native Americans were “selfishly trying to keep”  land for themselves and utilized homophobic slurs.

USC students have fought for a considerable length of time to evacuate the Wayne show off their grounds due to his comments.

The university’s assistant dean of diversity and inclusion, Evan Hughs, said in a statement: “I am writing to update you on plans for the Wayne exhibit, located in the main building of the School of Cinematic Arts Complex.

“Conversations about systemic racism in our cultural institutions along with the recent global, civil uprising by the Black Lives Matter Movement require that we consider the role our School can play as a change-maker in promoting antiracist cultural values and experiences.

“Therefore, it has been decided that the Wayne Exhibit will be removed.”

John Wayne died back in 1979 after suffering cancer.

Fights over the display initially started in 2019 after remarks made by Wayne in 1971 reemerged on the web.

In the comments published in Playboy, Wayne said: “I believe in white supremacy until the blacks are educated to a point of responsibility.

“I don’t believe in giving authority and positions of leadership and judgment to irresponsible people.

“I don’t feel guilty about the fact that five or 10 generations ago these people were slaves.

All the contents of the presentation, which was introduced in 2012, will currently be housed in the Cinematic Arts Library archive.

Why an ‘active’ approach to risk modelling is key to navigating markets today

Published

Whether investors are aiming for a cautious approach or a riskier investment profile with the potential for higher returns, Architas’ Blended Fund range is designed to match a range of investor risk appetites. And like many asset managers, Architas predominantly uses two approaches to define asset allocation within the five risk bands used in the Blended Range – strategic and tactical.

Whilst risk model provider EValue’s quantitative approach to asset allocation takes into account the long-term performance of different asset classes and the likely future performance given current valuations, along with long-term measures of volatility and correlations with other asset classes. Yet as with most systems of its kinds, EValue focuses on the long term; it is unable to analyse short-term market movements and fluctuations. So whilst it would have seen that in Q1 2020 markets fell by a record percentage before rebounding, it will not be able to factor in the cost of the coronavirus and lockdown and its impact on markets. Similarly, it is not able to consider ongoing Brexit woes, geo-political trade wars or the outcome of the US election in 2020.
