  • The 32-year-old talks of the pride she feels in leading a business that has been run by her family for 88 years. The store in the southern Indian city of Chennai was first opened by her great-great-grandfather in 1928. Over the decades Nalli has become one of India’s best-known brands of saris. The traditional Indian garment for women, saris are lengths of wide fabric which are first wrapped around the waist and then draped over one shoulder. Lavanya says the brand’s heritage and reputation for selling the finest silk saris are central to its continuing appeal. ______ This signifies that business remains strong. Yet as a growing number of Indian women are choosing to wear Western clothing, or less formal Indian garments, Lavanya is using business skills she gained from spending several years away from the family company to introduce new product lines and take the firm into e-commerce.
    (a) Nalli is renowned for selling hand-woven silk saris, which are made from the artisan weavers in the Kanchipuram district of the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu.
    (b) While saris still dominate on Indian city streets, it doesn’t take long to spot young women in Western casual wear such as jeans, t-shirts and shirts.
    (c) Saris sold as special occasion wear for celebrations, festivals and marriages are not cheap, with the most intricate examples costing as much as $3,100 (£2,350).
    (d) Nalli reports annual revenues of more than $100m (£76m) across 29 Indian stores, plus outlets in Singapore and California.
    (e) The company has also launched a range of more affordable saris, made from cheaper fabrics, such as a blend of polyester and cotton.

  • It happened at the end of high school. The young athlete would get up before school to
    run and lift, attend a full day of school, practice after school with the team, and then train
    even more on her own after that. It was too much, and the rising star nearly walked off
    the court for good_________ “I started playing volleyball and set my mind to becoming
    an Olympian in volleyball.” She said. While 365 days without practice would be enough
    to sideline most athletes, Donne came back with full force.
    (a) “I actually gave up the game after high school and put the basketball away for a year,”
    (b) “I knew the second I picked the ball back up and started playing that I wanted to get back
    into it,”
    (c) Donne recently took home a gold medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics for the U.S. women’s
    basketball team.
    (d) “Without the passion, you’ve got nothing,” she said. “You need the passion to put the
    practice and preparation in.”

  • Individual visitors to Rio and other Olympic venues are low-hanging fruit for hackers.
    Whether via phishing (tricking someone into providing their financial account
    information — often via an attachment in an email or a fake website that purports to sell
    or give away tickets), an ATM skimmer (which reads and records the card’s information,
    including password) or point-of-sale malware (like that used in the 2013 Target breach),
    it’s not hard for cybercriminals to trick the unsuspecting. While government officials will
    certainly try to contain that activity, they’re more concerned about larger-scale
    breaches.________ In the months leading up to the games, the agency has identified
    1,600 groups responsible for more than 20,000 attacks on public institutions in recent
    years.
    (a) Financial institutions will also be an attractive target, says Pastor. But in Brazil that’s
    nothing new.
    (b) “The cloud, ultimately, offers more operational security than the distributed systems
    we’ve had in the past,” says Mark Testoni, president of SAP National Security Services.
    (c) Salat says Avast expects attempted attacks on the Rio Olympics to be quadruple the
    number organizers faced in London in 2012.
    (d) ABIN, Brazil’s intelligence agency, is monitoring roughly 40 groups of hackers it
    believes has the ability to hack “sensitive structures,” such as federal databases
    (e) For ex. ABIN discovered nearly 1600 groups which may be responsible for the multitude
    of attacks happened in recent years.

    (a) The experience of investors with these new products, however, has not been good, and
    the demand for them has dipped significantly.
    (b) What’s more, the pipeline of new offerings is starting to dwindle.
    (c) There are now more than 1,300 alt funds in the market, but assets under management
    totaled $175 billion at the end of April, versus the peak of $183 billion in August 2014,
    according to data from research firm Morningstar
    (d) The growth of so-called liquid alt funds that invest in a wide range of alternative assets
    and hedge fund–like trading strategies has fed off the hunger of individual investors for a
    broader array of investing options.
    (e) Many of the hedge fund managers that have come to the retail market with 40 Act funds
    are not managing them in the same way, and while performance figures in the opaque
    hedge fund space are hard to confirm, industry experts say the alt fund returns are in
    many cases much lower than those of the hedge funds they partially mimic.

    (a) While most analysts say OPEC members are all talk, and no action, some say there is an
    outside chance members could feel pressured enough to act if crude prices are in free fall.
    (b) Talk of a deal, along with dollar weakness, has driven oil prices sharply higher in a short
    period of time, to a recent peak of $48.75 in West Texas Intermediate crude futures.
    (c) Members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries have said they would
    discuss at their late September meeting whether a freeze or some other action is needed to
    stabilize oil prices, after a number of high-profile failures to reach an agreement.
    (d) But fresh data showing a continued overhang in U.S. supply knocked prices lower again,
    and WTI futures settled at $46.77 per barrel Wednesday..
    (e) Some producers, like Saudi Arabia have been hoping to tap the debt market again, and
    firmer oil prices work in their favor, according to Helima Croft, global head of
    commodity strategy at RBC Capital Markets.

  • Stock traders have been watching out for Janet Yellen all week, but they were blindsided
    by Hillary Clinton.________. But they will also be licking their wounds after Democrat
    Clinton punctured the health-care sector with one powerful tweet Wednesday afternoon.
    The IBB Nasdaq Biotech ETF fell 3.4 percent, after Clinton tweeted that there’s no
    justification for the high prices Mylan is charging for EpiPens.
    (a) “Hillary took the air out of that sector and that hit other momentum names,” said Scott
    Redler, chief strategist at T3Live. com.
    (b) Mylan has been under fire for the dramatic price hikes in EpiPens, livesaving devices for
    people with severe allergies. Prices have gone from $100 in 2008 to more than $600 for
    some customers.
    (c) Fed watching should continue Thursday, as traders digest durable goods and jobless
    claims data ahead of Friday’s Jackson Hole speech by the Fed chair
    (d) Markets have been meandering on light volume this week as traders speculate about
    whether Fed Chair Yellen will give any clues on rate hikes in her much anticipated
    speech Friday.
    (e) Redler said the sell-off in gold and the gold miners Wednesday suggested that investors
    might be thinking that Yellen will be hawkish..
