trump's overconfidence may lead to 'major miscalculation', fears jpmorgan
`for us equities, 25 per cent tariffs on all imports from china could take $us8 off consensus 2019 eps projections of $us179 and reduce next year's eps growth from 10 per cent to 5 per cent year-on-year,` the note said, citing a september 12 report from jpmorgan strategists led by dubravko lakos-bujas. the $us179 refers to average wall street estimates for the s&p 500.loading`even with a forward multiple of 17, an eps downgrade this large would end the us stock rally unless some other offset materialized.`concerns for the markets and economy include `second-round` effects from trade battles, including hits to confidence, supply-chain disruption and and tighter financial conditions, the report said. it noted that improvements at the country level in key markets have been `incremental rather than transformational,` citing turkey, russia, brazil and argentina.also, the federal reserve meeting this week presents some uncertainty, especially if the statement language changes to suggest the fed is near the end of its hiking cycle.`the deeper question is whether this week's rallies are the beginning of an unmissable strategic opportunity (lasting six months or more, delivering at least 10 per cent upside) or just a more tactical one (lasting another week or two, delivering about 5 per cent upside)?,` the strategists wrote. `across research teams, conviction is higher around the latter than the former.`bloomberg

tiger's triumph: woods' five-year quest for victory finally ends
just over five years since his last tournament victory, tiger woods has capped a remarkable comeback season with a two-shot win in the season-ending tour championship in atlanta, georgia.dressed in his traditional red shirt on sunday, the 42-year-old started the day with a three-shot lead and overcame a couple of late stumbles to finish at 11-under overall and claim his 80th title on the us pga tour.finally: all eyes were on tiger woods as he finally ended his title drought.photo: aphe is now just two tournament wins behind sam snead for the all-time record, pocketing the $us1.62 million ($2.23m) in prize money after finishing two shots ahead of fellow american billy horschel, with dustin johnson two shots further back in third.with his last victory coming way back in august 2013 at the bridgestone invitational, woods' ability to return to professional golf at all - let alone win - was in major doubt last year following spinal fusion surgery as he plummeted all the way down to 674th in the world rankings.but having regained full health after 10 months on the sidelines, woods produced six top-10 finishes prior to this week and will now move back inside the world's top 20, his relief palpable as he raised both arms in triumph after knocking in his final putt for par on the 18th green.

[email protected]: asx set to start week in red
the greater hostility between the uk and eur raised once more the spectre of a brexit no-deal, which looks increasingly likely as the october/november deadline looms. watch for activity in the eur/usd this week, particularly considering the scheduled speech of ecb mario draghi tonight, for hints that a no-deal outcome is being priced into markets, as that pair shrugs off the news to challenge three-month highs at about 1.18.4. oil: the politics of oil rounded off the weekend’s tripartite of geopolitical troubles. in response to a us president trump twitter-tirade last week regarding a spike in oil prices, opec+ defied the us president calls to boost oil production to lower oil prices, stating that the organisation was currently doing enough to meet demand.the commentary opens-up a possible push higher in oil prices above $us80 per barrel (in brent crude terms) – a mark that has been consistently threatened in the past month. that price point still appears the comfortable level for brent crude despite us president trump’s protestations, amounting to the mid-point between its multi-year high and low price. however, some degree of overshooting looks possible in the short term, with $us83.75 jumping out as the next significant technical level.5. asx: spi futures are indicating a 23-point drop at the open for the asx200 against this backdrop, following on from a week where australian equities showed tentative signs of strength, but appeared capped to the upside in the short-...

seven ways to improve the act's education system
given the amount of money we spend per student and our relative socioeconomic advantage, the act’s education system should be at the top of the class. unfortunately, debates on performance rarely go beyond playground arguments.claims that any criticism of public schools is talking down the system are toxic and must be rejected outright. equally, empty rhetoric about failing our students by the opposition must also be rejected. voters deserve viable alternatives to current government policy, not just name-calling.the act should be leading the nation and helping all our kids reach their highest potential, but our politicians seem stuck.photo: gabriele charottethe ideological inertia of the labor and liberal parties in the act has squandered our opportunities.the vacuous future of education strategy released by the act government this august epitomises the problem. the document has eight points that mean little, waffling about “putting students at the centre”, “empowering teachers”, and “strengthened systems”. the strategy says nothing about what will improve performance. the plan has no metrics to hit and no milestones to meet. it is a strategy that cannot fail, because virtually anything can be claimed as a success.this ignores the real and growing problems in our education system. anu research shows that our children are up to a year behind in learning compared to other children who come from similarly wealthy and educated populations. the most recent productivi...

free billy: this tackle convinces the storm that slater should play
buettner declared in the aftermath of the incident featuring koroibete and watene-zelezniak that `it was a desperate tackle or bump on the panthers winger`.loading`you can see koroibete making his way across at great speed. when you look at the incident no charge was applicable,` buettner said at the time. `koroibete was heading in the same general direction as watene-zelezniak, who was approaching the try line with both players at great speed. that’s clearly different to a front-on challenge where the arm is tucked into the side of the defender with no attempt to make a conventional tackle.`watene-zelezniak was required to undergo scans on his shoulder after that match while feki jumped to his feet after slater’s 14th-minute effort last friday.due to the fact that koroibete was never charged slater’s legal team will not be able to include the episode in 2016 as part of their defence on tuesday night, but it has helped convince them that he would be hard done by to miss the grand final.when the herald pointed out buettner’s claims to storm officials on sunday, they preferred not to comment. while slater’s charge attracted 200 demerit points, the match review committee opted not to charge blake.charged: billy slater will face the judiciary over his tackle on sosaia feki in the preliminary final.photo: suppliedthe storm have also studied footage of an apparent shoulder charge that sam kasiano performed in a try-saving tackle for samoa in a test match against ton...

five burning questions ahead of the wallabies tour
it must be pointed out that cheika still has the support of the players. they love him. at the same time, if the wallabies can’t respond with actions this weekend then serious questions have to be asked.will kurtley beale remain at no.10? beale dropping the ball once is a rarity but doing it twice in the one game against argentina showed something was clearly up. after the springboks fixture, beale, new no.12 matt toomua and cheika all agreed there was room for improvement, and the coach expressed his appetite to keep the 10-12 combination going.the reality is beale should have been hooked, not toomua, halfway through the second half of the pumas match. beale may have been involved in the lead-up to a clinical try that featured six of australia’s seven backs but he failed to make the no.10 jersey his own.key man: skipper michael hooper.photo: aapwith toomua outplaying beale in brisbane and the gold coast, the dilemma for cheika is how to cram his backs all into the same team. beale seldom plays three bad games in a row and he has been the brightest spark of wallabies’ attack over the past two years.moving him to fullback and dane haylett-petty to the wing with bernard foley at no.10 is not the craziest suggestion if cheika wants to get his best players on the park - particularly given how interchangeable backline positions are in this australia side.how does the back row shape up? providing michael hooper’s hamstring injury isn’t more serious than the wallabies are ...

that the sprinting pendulum is swinging in that direction too?that european bred bluebloods are simply classier animals than those produced in this hemisphere?that a trainer like newmarket based appleby, backed by the vast riches of the godolphin empire, has the resources to be as good or better than the aussies when it comes to preparing sprinters?hometown hero: trainer charlie appleby claimed his first english classic win after william buick's winning ride on masar.photo: pathe truth, as is so often the case, is messy, and is an amalgam of all of the above and a few other things too.jungle cat is a very decent galloper. he had won at group one level in dubai over 1200 metres in the al quoz sprint in march but it has to be acknowledged that his task that day was simplified greatly when his stable companion and the hot odds-on favourite blue point (who subsequently won at royal ascot) was scratched at the barrier.usually jungle cat is tried and found wanting when he takes on the cream of sprinters on his own turf. he tries very hard, and is talented, but not an absolute top-liner back in europe.but what suited him on saturday was the much faster pace that an australia group one over 1400 metres was run at, plus the furlong longer trip. jungle cat was flat to the boards trying to stay in touch for much of the race but his grit and class carried him to the front just metres from the post.appleby later admitted that he might now want even further than 1400 metres to show his be...

cards can curb dangerous tackles but we need consistency, world rugby
world rugby has called for a greater consistency from referees when they hand out red cards but will not ask officials to show too much leniency, chief executive brett gosper said on sunday.a crackdown on head-high tackles has seen a surge in dismissals but opinions have been split on whether the punishments were often too harsh.consistency: israel folau's yellow card for his attempt at a high ball against ireland was widely debated.photo: ap`we've got to work on our consistency but at the end of the day, we're trying to change player behaviour and we're trying to do that in the best way we can, and cards are the best way to change player behaviour,` gosper told reporters in sydney.`we're trying to lower the tackle height so we can reduce the incidence of concussion and injury, and we know from evidence that that's what that does.`we just have to be consistent and make sure it's very clear what we mean by a head-high tackle or a tackle that's too high... we'll get there, but you always go through this period of people believing there are too many cards because you're adjusting player behaviour.`

royal commission needs to reveal causes of sad stories in aged care
in victoria, residential aged care services are heavily dependent on external expertise, from either the local community-based palliative care service or a visiting service provided by public hospitals, to provide advice on end-of-life care.replayreplay videoloadingplay videoplay videoplaying in 5 ...because of the frequency of dying in residential aged care, one would expect skills to manage this as integral to all staff. instead, many aged care facilities rely on another agency (a palliative care service or visiting hospital service) to provide the core skills of managing care at the end of life.federally funded aged care services do not want to draw attention to this because they don’t pay for what the palliative care services provide and the state government accepts this arrangement because the intervention of the visiting hospital or palliative care service is focused on keeping the person out of state-funded hospitals.personal carers now form 70 per cent of staff in aged care facilities; most seem to be run off their feet, with the workload and the physical demands required, and they receive minimal remuneration. it is well-known that personal care staff receive insufficient training to prepare and sustain them for their role in the care of the older person with individual, complex healthcare needs and to include their family members.this lack of skill extends to preparing for and recognising that an older person might be approaching the end of their life. palliative ...

4 points: a case of love the one you're with
kennedy kicked two goals four that day in his first game back from injury. he was rusty and might have kicked a bag by half-time. tyson goldsack, too, was back from injury, returning from a knee reconstruction in the same season he did his knee. he could barely have played any better and yet still kennedy was influential in the result.on friday night goldsack again played well but again jack riewoldt finished the night with five goals.balancing act: ben reid (left) and tyson goldsack at a recent collingwood training session.photo: wayne ludbeyon saturday against melbourne, kennedy and darling kept asking questions that collingwood must answer. kennedy looked sharper against melbourne in his second game after injury than he did against collingwood two weeks earlier.but then how much was that a question about melbourne not kennedy? the demons were abominable. melbourne had no answers for them and so raised the question of collingwood – is your answer good enough?logically, if moore was fit, playing – and completing – matches he would be in the team. but moore has not finished three of the seven games he has played this year. the fear of picking moore is that, given he has not been tested in matches since doing his latest hamstring, he does not finish the game again. the risk of playing with 21 for half the game is greater than the risk of backing in the existing 22.brushed aside: josh kennedy shook off tyson goldsack in the final term to get west coast over the line in th...

'have i done something wrong?' why billy slater should be set free
slater’s gun defence counsel, nick ghabar, will need to come armed with something stronger than sentiment and, on that score, he should have plenty of ammo.it will be an injustice if slater isn’t cleared to play. it's not a shoulder charge. it's a shoulder collision.the shoulder charge ban was never supposed to outlaw slater’s `east-west` tackle, which he was making to stop a try in the corner.the ban was supposed to stop the `north-south` tackle when defenders eyeball a rival player on the opposite side of the ditch, and then throw everything at him, including his shoulder, to knock him into the middle of next week with the ball carrier’s head snapping back like he’s a crash test dummy.the tackle that prompted the newly formed arl commission to stamp out the shoulder charge came in 2012 when souths’ greg inglis lined up dragons hooker dean young, collecting him high and leaving him with severe concussion.loading`tell 'brownie' to put me back on,` young told a dragons trainer that night, referring to coach nathan brown. the only problem was brown stopped coaching the dragons in 2008.inglis was suspended for three matches but the poor old shoulder charge was rubbed out forever.the shoulder charge’s best friend, roosters backrower sonny bill williams, was heartbroken.`you need good timing and technique to pull off a shoulder charge. simply put, if you can't do it don't try … this is league not tiddlywinks!!'' he said in an instagram post.typically...

west coast midfield deserve more credit, says duggan
it's about time west coast's midfield received more recognition for their outstanding season, according to young eagles' defender liam duggan.the trio of elliot yeo, jack redden and luke shuey have been consistent performers all season and dom sheed has been a good replacement for andrew gaff, who has been suspended since round 20.gaff made the all-australian team while yeo was considered unlucky to miss the team after being named in the squad of 40 nominees, and eagles' coach adam simpson made the point the team had flown under the radar all year.replayreplay videoloadingplay videoplay videoplaying in 5 ...their battle with collingwood's highly rated midfield that includes scott pendlebury, adam treloar and steele sidebottom will be pivotal in determining the result with the eagles' tall key forwards looming as the eagles' biggest strength.they managed to overrun the magpies in the last quarter of the qualifying final and were crucial to the result defying the critics who considered the eagles midfield a weakness heading into 2018.

whitecross gets his flag as hawks edge demons in vfl decider
last hurrah: veteran brendan whitecross with his children after finally scoring a grand final win with hawthorn.photo: darrian traynorbox hill’s first premiership since 2013 was won the hard way. the hawks finished sixth and advanced via an extra-time thriller against port melbourne in the elimination final, and a one-point preliminary final win over williamstown.when the players received their premiership medals, the biggest cheer was reserved for hawthorn veteran brendan whitecross. the fan favourite had been denied premiership success in any of the hawks’ four flags over the last decade, or box hill’s 2013 triumph, due to a mixture of injury and selection.the queenslander was rapt to have finally broken his duck, celebrating with wife kelly, children cody and harvey, and father phil.“it’s really special, because [my family] have ridden the bumps pretty hard with me over the last five or six years, through knee reconstructions, missing out on finals, the ups and downs of not being selected and not playing a lot of vfl footy,” whitecross said.screamer: casey's tim smith flies high against the hawks during the vfl grand final.photo: darrian traynorwhitecross also lauded the side’s youngsters.“it means a lot. not just the personal side, getting one but the growth in our group this year has been second to none.“for them to show the composure, keep their heads under pressure, and get the job done at crucial moments has been really impressive, and something i??...
