The pound to euro exchange rate has shown slight improvement thanks to the UK gross domestic product (GDP) figure coming in better than expected. O n an annual basis, the UK economy grew by a rate of 2 per cent in the last quarter – the best rate of growth since late 2017. However, GBP remains at the mercy of Brexit .

Hood: I always considered R.E.M. to be the greatest southern rock band of all time. They’re every bit as southern as the Allman Brothers, who I truly adore, as Duane is my all-time favorite guitar player, or Lynyrd Skynyrd who I also admire at least in their original run from 1973 to ’77. The Allmans truly had the greatest musicians, Skynyrd had that amazing mythology, and although stylistically different, they possessed so much of what I love about punk rock, even if they came from an earlier time. Van Zant was a fantastic songwriter, and they had a great sense of composition. But R.E.M. had great albums. Lots of them, in a row. They challenged themselves more and in so many different directions. They were the greatest of all. They were such a huge influence on [DBT cofounder Mike] Cooley and I in our Adam’s House Cat days and beyond. Still are. If you listen to the AHC album Town Burned Down you can literally count the R.E.M. references, even though they manifested themselves in many different ways. In more recent years, when I was having a hard time figuring out the next move on how to write a follow-up to the DBT album American Band , it so happened that the reissue of Automatic for the People came out and became a bit of a touchstone to me in figuring out a new direction. As I said, you’d probably never hear that in a literal way listening to it, but it definitely was a huge influence, especially in the sequencing and general vibe of how to express the things I was feeling and having a hard time expressing in song.
( In 2008, National Geographic writer Dan Buettner published his bestselling book, The Blue Zones: 9 Lessons for Living Longer From the People Who’ve Lived the Longest , about the five “longevity pockets” around the world. For this weekly series, Next Avenue Money and Work & Purpose editor Richard Eisenberg, a Gerontological Society of America Journalists in Aging Fellow, takes a different look at the Blue Zones — places where there’s a high concentration of people living past 90 without chronic illnesses. Rather than focusing on the residents’ diets, he reports on how the oldest people in the Blue Zones make their money last and what Americans and America can learn from this. This installment, Part 2, is about the Blue Zones of Okinawa, Japan; Sardinia, Italy and Ikaria, Greece. Part I, which you can read here , was about The Nicoya Peninsula of Costa Rica. )
The bearded Vire, a computer programmer and ukulele lifer who has been playing since he was a kid, sings “I’m Alive,” the closing theme song to the anime series Black Butler. He lays down a Spanish-flavored intro to Gloria Gaynor’s disco anthem “I Will Survive” with Hannah Moore on vocals and Rodman shaking maracas like they owe him money. The group also does a take on The Squirrel Nut Zippers’ mid ’90s swing hit “Hell” with Lee singing lead, reading glasses down low on his nose.
There was a notable pop in Sterling on reports of what would almost certainly be the one move the EU could make to finally end the Brexit impasse. The Irish backstop clause is widely-held to be the most significant single sticking point in the Withdrawal Agreement holding back its ratification in the EU parliament. Adding a timelimit to the clause would almost certainly see the deal pass the House of Commons, hence why Sterling spiked on the rumour.
Aside from Italian retail sales figures – expected to register a 0.2% decline in the volume of sales at the retail level – it’s another data-sparse session with Brexit expected to be the key driver of price action as Prime Minister May meets with European leaders to state the case for an extended Brexit delay. Michael Brown, a senior analyst at Caxton FX, said “The granting of an extension may support the pound due to the avoidance of an imminent no-deal exit, however the deadlock in Westminster over the way forward is likely to cap any rallies unless cross-party talks are more fruitful this week.”
