Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: The World Health Organization

Published

on

Last Week TonightOn the October 18 episode of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, we had a chance to see a focus on something that matters. Think in terms of the United States and the World Health Organization. This is a group that a lot of people out there probably weren’t altogether familiar with a couple of years ago … but times are different.

If you remember, the President announced that he would be withdrawing from the WHO within the next year — but what are the implications of that? For starters, the organization is one that has achieved great things. Think in terms of what they have done to eradicate smallpox. They’ve done valuable work, and provided tremendous resources to countries in need.

Yet, their imperfections have become the focus over the past few months — something that seems mostly political. We don’t think that Oliver’s segment was meant to just bestow the virtues of this organization. This was a more nuanced approach to everything that the organization does, the timetable to make the world better, and anything/everything in between. There was some of John’s signature humor along the way, but also notes that there is still time in order to fix things. Yet, the road ahead isn’t easy.

Are there times that John tends to be pessimistic? Sure, but it’s not that he is devoid of hope. Rather, he operates as a realist who uses comedy to get viewers to recognize the truth, only to then empower them to make change. His ability to do this is rare on television — heck, it’s almost unheard of in that sense. Yet, this segment is another fine reminder of him at his best, and maybe it will cause people to research the WHO a little bit further.

Radhika Apte in her most recent interaction with Vikranth Massey on social media from London has admitted that she does not believe in the institution of marriage.  When asked why she got married the talented performer replied that it is easier for married people to get a British visa and that’s why she and her man opted for it in 2012.

Radhika is currently chilling with Taylor in their London home during the lockdown and will soon start filming her next English film ‘Noor Inayat Khan’ in which she plays a spy based on a true story.

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.
