#1 Canelo Alvarez Finally Agrees To f*ght Terence Crawford On One Condition

  @sports      By Goosebumpz      2 hours ago





At 36-years-old Terence Crawford has made it clear that hes only interested in legacy-defining f*ghts and they dont come much bigger than a clash against Saul Canelo Alvarez.



Crawford cemented his place in the history books when he became the first male f*ghter in the four belt era to be undisputed in two weight divisions. Hes coming off a career best performance, dominating fellow welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr from the first bell before stopping him in the ninth round.



Since that f*ght, Bud has targeted Canelo, another undisputed champion who happens to f*ght three weight classes above his last bout. The Mexican is arguably still the biggest draw in the sport but has previously been dismissive about facing the naturally smaller man, claiming he would get no credit for a victory.

However the 33-year-old seems to be coming round to the idea and now seems willing to make it happen but only if the money is right.

Speaking at a No Golf, No Life presentation, the four-weight world champion said:

Crawford is a great f*ghter, obviously, three divisions below. As Ive said before, Ive fought bigger guys in my category, smaller guys, older guys, younger guys. At the end of the day, I was born to f*ght and Ill f*ght anyone, obviously on terms that suit me best.

At this point in my career Ill always make the best f*ghts but they have to benefit me.

It depends on the money, but why not?



Canelo may just get what he wants. Turki Alalshikh controls boxing in Saudi Arabia and is offering some of the biggest purses in the sport to make f*ghts a reality. At the top of his wish list happens to be Canelo vs Crawford.

#16   Chris Brown Gets Stuck Suspended in Air During Concert

11 people viewing this

@hiphop      By Goosebumpz      48 mins ago




Chris Brown was technically over the influence during a concert on Tuesday night, after the R&B star got caught suspended in the air mid-song after his wires malfunctioned.

The Grammy-winning star glided across the stage on wires at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, while performing his song “Under the Influence.” Brown seemed to come to a halt, movement wise, mid-song, although the crowd seemed unaware at first as he kept singing.

An upset Brown then signaled to tour workers to help him down. Despite being stuck, he didn’t stop singing and continued to perform.

A ladder was brought to the stage, and Brown climbed down and finished performing his song, though he exchanged words with one of the tour workers who helped bring the ladder over.

At the end of the two-hour concert, he told the audience he was angry but also made light of the situation.

Brown, who launched his 11:11 tour last week, glides in the air during the show to a smaller stage in the center of the venue, where he performed songs like “Take You Down” and “Wet the Bed.” While in the air, he also danced and even sang upside down.

The Wednesday night concert featured a number of his hits, including “Go Crazy,” “No Guidance,” “Loyal,” “She Ain’t You,” “With You” and his 2005 debut single “Run It!”

Arya Starr and Maeta opened for Brown, who will play two nights at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and wrap the tour with two shows at the Crypto.com Arena on Aug. 6-7.

#18   Jun 13 - Saudi Arabia Exits US Petrodollar Deal After 80 Years

9 people viewing this

@news      By HERMES      7 hours ago

Petrodollars are US dollars exchanged for crude oil exports. The deal, which was struck between Saudi Arabia and the United States in 1974 in the aftermath of an oil crisis, allowed Washington a steady flow of crude and a market to buy its debt while the Kingdom would get military aid and equipment. Experts say the development could bring about a sea change in the global financial order and shows that the dollars dominance is no longer guaranteed


The deal signed on 8 June, 1974, allowed US dollars to be exchanged for crude oil exports. Reuters
The US-Saudi Arabia petrodollar deal has come to an end after eight decades.

The deal that was signed on 8 June, 1974, allowed US dollars to be exchanged for crude oil exports.
It expired on 9 June, according to several media reports.
But what do we know about the deal? What happens next? And why has it been allowed to lapse?

Lets take a closer look:

Petrodollars

First, lets briefly look at petrodollars.
Petrodollars arent a currency.
Rather they are US dollars exchanged for crude oil exports.

According to Investopedia, the petrodollar system came about in the aftermath of the US going off the gold standard.

Until then, the US had tied its currency to the price of gold at $35 per ounce under the Bretton Woods Agreement
However, in 1971, then US president Richard M Nixon terminated the agreement.
This came after the US dollar collapsed after the global economy and its demand for safe a*sets exceeded the available supply of gold bullion.
The petrodollar system was set up the next year in 1972.
Now, with global supply of dollars increasing, oil exporters earned more and more petrodollars thanks to higher oil prices.

They accepted dollars because there was simply no alternative.
Whats more, the dollar was the currency in which international trade and finance were carried out.

What the petrodollar system did was in effect reinforce the US dollars dominance as the global reserve currency.

This has had tangible benefits for Americans.
According to MSN, the use of dollars to purchase crude oil has a*sisted in keeping the currency strong.
This in turn has made imports comparatively cheap for US consumers.

The inflow of capital into US treasury bonds has given rise to low interest rates and a strong bond market.
The website quoted bestselling author and investment manager David Wright, in his book Bonfire of the Sanities wrote that people in the US enjoy as high of a standard of living as we do is because the dollar is strong.

Wright added this is also because energy cant be bought without US dollars.

According to MSN, this was a win for both sides.

Washington would get a steady flow of oil and a market to buy its debt while the Kingdom would ensure its stability.
The deal

The deal between Saudi Arabia and the United States was struck in 1974.
According to Bloomberg, by then, an oil crisis had struck the US and prices had skyrocketed after sanctions from OPECs Arab nations in retaliation for Washington helping Israel during the Yom Kippur war.

The idea behind the deal was simple the US would buy oil from the Kingdom and provide it with military aid and equipment.
Meanwhile, the Saudis would send billions of their petrodollar revenue back into America and finance its spending.



Experts say the US wasnt alone in trying to get Saudi Arabia on side.

Everyone in the US, France, Britain, Japan was trying to get their fingers in the Saudis pockets, Gordon S Brown, an economic officer with the State Department at the US embassy in Riyadh from 1976 to 1978, told the outlet.

What happens now?

According to India Today, Saudi Arabia can now sell oil and receive yuan, Euros, rubles and yen.
It is also considering conducting transactions in digital currencies like Bitcoin.

In the long term, it might speed up the trend of using alternate currencies to settle international trade.
According to MSN, this could bring about a sea change in the global financial order.

The petrodollars expiration could weaken the U.S. dollar and, by extension, the U.S. financial markets. If oil were to be priced in a currency other than the dollar, it could lead to a decline in global demand for the greenback. This, in turn, could result in higher inflation, higher interest rates, and a weaker bond market in the United States, the website stated.

The website added that the development reflects a change in the undercurrents of global power.

The US dollars dominance is no longer guaranteed, it argued.

James E Thorne, of Wellington-Altus Financial Inc, wrote on X that the development represents a strategic move by the United States to facilitate a managed decline of the US dollar and enhance its ability to refinance its national debt at lower rates.

This shift in global finance and geopolitics has far-reaching implications for fiscal dominance and the managed decline of the USD, Thorne wrote.

The shift away from the petrodollar system could contribute to a broader geopolitical realignment, with countries like Saudi Arabia seeking to reduce their reliance on the US and strengthen ties with other economic powers, such as China and the BRICS nations, Thorne added.

#19  Power Book IV to End After Season Three

@movies      By tnice      4 hours ago

 https://deadline.com/2024 .. ed-1235973036/

Starzs Power Book IV: Force will conclude following the dramas third season which is currently in production in Chicago. Its lights out for Tommy (Joseph Sikora) and the gang but that doesnt mean their stories are over.

As Deadline reported in March, Starz CEO Jeffrey Hirsch revealed plans to contain content costs by developing more new shows versus sustaining series longer as they become more expensive. The plan was implemented immediately as Starz announced the next day the development of a new prequel series Origin, following the Ghost (Omari Hardwick in the flagship series) and Tommy during their early years. The new show is similar to Power Book III: Raising Kanan, which centers on Powers favorite foe, Kanan Stark (played by Curtis 50 Cent Jackson) during his younger years.
