Shares of Sealand Natural Resources Inc (SLNR) have seen theMesa Adaptive Moving Average(MAMA) climb above the Fractional Moving Average or FAMA. The crossing of the MAMA and FAMA lines can be used to generate Buy and Sell signals. When the MAMA crosses above the FAMA a buy signal is given. Alternatively, when the MAMA crosses below the FAMA a sell signal is given.The MESA Adaptive Moving Average is a technical trend-following indicator which adapts to price movement based on the rate change of phase as measured by the Hilbert Transform Discriminator. This method of adaptation features a fast and a slow moving average so that the composite moving average swiftly responds to price changes and holds the average value until the next bars close. The Averages act as support and resistance areas and the price will tend to react to them. This makes pullbacks to the MAMA and FAMA suitable with-trend entry areas. As with most technical indicators, the MAMA is best used in conjuction with additional signals.
Lets take a look at some additionaltechnical levels on shares of Sealand Natural Resources Inc (SLNR). The current 14-day RSI is noted at 46.61, the 7-day is 42.80, and the 3-day is seen at 31.97. The RSI, or Relative Strength Index is a popular oscillating indicator among traders and investors. The RSI operates in a range-bound area with values between 0 and 100. Many traders keep an eye on the 30 and 70 marks on the RSI scale. A move above 70 is widely considered to show the stock as overbought, and a move below 30 would indicate that the stock may be oversold. Traders may use these levels to help identify stock price reversals.
Traders may be focusing on other technical indicators for stock assessment. Presently, Sealand Natural Resources Inc (SLNR) has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of -106.82. The CCI technical indicator can be used to help determine if a stock is overbought or oversold. CCI may also be used to help discover divergences that could possibly signal reversal moves. A CCI closer to +100 may provide an overbought signal, and a CCI near -100 may offer an oversold signal. Investors may be watching other technical indicators such as the Williams Percent Range or Williams %R. The Williams %R is a momentum indicator that helps measure oversold and overbought levels. This indicator compares the closing price of a stock in relation to the highs and lows over a certain time period.
A common look back period is 14 days. Sealand Natural Resources Inc (SLNR)s Williams %R presently stands at -100.00. The Williams %R oscillates in a range from 0 to -100. A reading between 0 and -20 would indicate an overbought situation. A reading from -80 to -100 would indicate an oversold situation.
Currently, the 14-day ADX for Sealand Natural Resources Inc (SLNR) is sitting at 9.99. Generally speaking, an ADX value from 0-25 would indicate an absent or weak trend. A value of 25-50 would support a strong trend. A value of 50-75 would identify a very strong trend, and a value of 75-100 would lead to an extremely strong trend. ADX is used to gauge trend strength but not trend direction. Traders often add the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI) to identify the direction of a trend.
A widely used tool among technical stock analysts is the moving average. Moving averages are considered to be lagging indicators that simply take the average price of a stock over a certain period of time. Moving averages can be very helpful for spotting peaks and troughs. They may also be used to help the trader figure out reliable support and resistance levels for the stock. Currently, the 200-day MA is sitting at 0.35.

Amazon sees your Confederate, HBO, and might be raising you Black America, a new series in very, very active development about what America would be like today if freed slaves had been given Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabamaas reparations after the Civil War. If thats ringing bells, youve probably been following the PR problem HBO has been having with its own in-development alternate-history series, which imagines a much more Man in the High Castletype present, where the South has seceded and slavery was both kept around and turned into a modernized arm of the economy over time.
Two of the Amazon programs biggest behind-the-scenes differences are that its being made by a black creative team, and that, while Confederate already has a series order, as of now Black America still needs to go through the pilot process at Amazon in hopes of getting picked up. There is a scenario in which it might get pre-green-lit by the streaming giant say, if it landed a few big-name talents but, at this time, it will still have to compete with the other series hopefuls.
According to Deadline which broke the news about Black Americas details today this isnt a rapid-fire response to Confederate, either. The show has been in the works for more than a year, but its producer Will Packer and creator Aaron McGruder only decided to go public now with its specifics. Because of all the Confederate headlines, Packer told Deadline he wanted to make sure the creative community knew that there was a project that preexisted, and we are pretty far down the road with it. He also addressed the impact of creating a place like New Colonia, the hard-won utopia at the center of Black America. It was something that was personally intriguing for me as a black American. You would be hard pressed to find many black Americans who have not thought about the concept of reparation what would happen if reparations were actually given.
As for all the trouble around Confederate a show from the creators of Game of Thrones that brings the darkest postCivil War timeline to life Packer had a few thoughts on that, as well. The fact that there is the contemplation of contemporary slavery makes it something that I would not be a part of producing or consuming, he told Deadline. Slavery is far too real and far too painful, and we still see the manifestations of it today as a country, for me to ever view that as a form of entertainment.

The asking price for President Donald Trump’s luxury Caribbean estate recently dropped by more than $11 million.
The beachfront estate on St. Martin was previously listed for $28 million, the Washington Post reported . But about a month ago, the trust overseeing Trump’s assets slashed the price to $16.9 million, Lesley Reed, an agent for Sotheby’s International Realty, told the Post.
The asking price now appears to be closer to what Trump paid for the property in 2013, when it was listed for $19.7 million, the Post reported. The final sales price was not disclosed.
The gated estate has 11 bedrooms, 12 full bathrooms, a tennis court and a pool, according to the Sotheby’s listing .
When Trump became president, he placed his financial assets in a trust controlled by a Trump Organization executive and his son Donald Trump Jr. He did not fully divest from his businesses, but he is supposed to be separated from the day-to-day decisions, which would include decisions about the asking price of the St. Martin property. But Trump is still allowed to withdraw money from the trust at any time which has led to questions about potential conflicts of interest.

LED THE WAY FOR T&T: Krystle Esdelle
TRINIDAD and Tobago saved their best for last as they soared to their sixth title in succession when the curtain fell on the CAZOVA (Caribbean Zonal Volleyball Federation) Womens Championships on Monday night in Jamaica. After both teams had lost just one set apiece en route to the final, the visitors crushed hosts Jamaica 25-12, 25-16, 25-10 in the shortest and most one-sided match of the tournament, taking just 62 minutes to win the gold medals. It was a record seventh title for T&T as they went past the Barbadians, who did not even qualify this time around and have not been at the top of the podium since they claimed their sixth title in 2004. After not reaching the final in the first five editions, T&T were triumphant in 1996 in the final year of annual competition, but had to settle for two silver medals as Barbados were triumphant four times in a row in the now biennial tournament. This countrys women denied the Bajans a fifth straight title in the 06 final and have not let go of the crown since. This has been the longest time between CAZOVA tournaments as the last edition was staged in 2014 when T&T swept both titles as home. The tournaments were separated this time around but the final results were the same, as the men captured their second straight title and third overall three weeks ago in Trinidad. T&T womens coach Nicholson Drakes admitted that his team expected a much tougher battle from the Jamaicans on Monday night, but pointed out that we were doing a lot of future training in preparation, because we looked at Jamaica as the team wed be playing in the final. France-based Krystle Esdelle led the way with 14 points, including ten kills. The former national skipper also had three service winners in the first set during a period when her team won ten straight points with her on the serving line. Greece-based Channon Thompson, another former CAZOVA Most Valuable Player, had eight kills in her 11 points and the Turkey-based pair of Sinead Jack and Darlene Ramdin chipped in with nine and ten points, respectively. Only four players on the Jamaican team scored in the match and no one managed more than five points. However, they still advance to the third and final round of NORCECA (North, Central American and the Caribbean) qualifying for the World Championships. T&T did not need to win the tournament to book their place, having already done so as hosts of one of the three qualifying tournaments in the next few months for the six tickets from this region for Japan in October next year. It has been an unforgettable last six weeks for the T&T women, as they placed ninth in the Pan American Cup in Peru in late June to qualify for next years World Grand Prix. They had qualified for the biggest tournament after the Olympic Games and World Championships for the first time last year and became the first team from the English-speaking Caribbean to participate in this tournament in the first half of last month. And T&T managed a victory when they came from behind to stun Australia at home in Couva on July 14. T&T and Martinique qualified for the third and final round of NORCECA qualifying for the World Championships in Italy and Bulgaria in September next year by finishing first and second, respectively, in CAZOVA.

“ARIN has had a long history of Caribbean engagement,” said John Curran, ARIN’s President and CEO. “We want to build upon the work done in the past and welcome even more Caribbean voices, views, and contributions to the ARIN community. Given Bevil’s standing and extensive experience in the region, we’re happy to have him on board to help us achieve this goal.”
Over the past 20 years, ARIN has been engaging with the Caribbean in many ways, recognizing the region’s unique challenges, opportunities and priorities. A resilient networking environment is central to the advancement of the Caribbean’s development goals. Many Caribbean countries are already increasing their investment in critical Internet infrastructure to spur local innovation, economic growth, and global competitiveness. At the same time, consumers want access to faster, more reliable, more affordable Internet services. This will require greater investment in network infrastructure. To support this, ARIN expects to see more autonomous networks, more requests for Internet number resources, and more organizations adopting the next generation Internet protocol, IPv6.

He has served throughout the Internet community as an Internet Strategist and Caribbean Outreach Manager with Packet Clearing House, advocating the implementation of exchange points throughout the Caribbean. He is a Special Advisor to the Caribbean Telecommunications Union (CTU), routinely advising governments and regulators in the region. He also serves as Chair of CaribNOG and Co-chair of the Caribbean Peering and Interconnection Forum (CarPIF), both volunteer technical communities supporting Internet development in the Caribbean.
As ARIN’s Caribbean Outreach Liaison, Wooding will focus on three key areas: 1. Building awareness of ARIN’s mission and services, 2. Growing Caribbean participation in the ARIN policy development process, 3. Strengthening relationships with ARIN’s members, partners, and communities in the Caribbean.
“Over the years, ARIN has developed a positive reputation in the Caribbean. I am looking forward to building on this by strengthening ARIN’s relationship with the technical community, regulators and governments in the region,” said Bevil Wooding.
Starting immediately, Wooding will promote ARIN’s objectives and initiatives while expanding its collaborative partnerships in the Caribbean. For more information about ARIN’s engagement in the Caribbean, take a look at how ARIN has been connecting with the Caribbean over the years on TeamARIN.net.

MIAMI The 4th Annual International Multicultural & Heritage Tourism Summit culminated this past Saturday, July 29, in Miami with a keynote address from the Bahamas Minister of Tourism and Aviation, the Hon. Dionisio DAguilar.
During his keynote address, he recognized the importance of the African American Market and proposes initiatives to penetrate that niche.
Hon. Dionisio DAguilar
The summit was designed to educate attendees on how to gain a share in the $90 Billion+ Multicultural & Heritage Tourism market, share minority travel trends and learn how to market the fastest growing segment in the industry, which is Multicultural & Heritage Tourism. It included workshops and panels, some of which included key persons from the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism.
Linville Johnson, Deputy Director of Business Development African American Market, Bahamas Ministry of Tourism, who was also a panelist at the summit, expressed how crucial it is for this market to see the Bahamas presence at such events, as it builds faith in the brand.
This market is very important to our tourism industry because we have a shared affinity for heritage and culture. African-Americans primarily travel in groups for reunions, fraternal, religious, and civic events, conferences and meetings, Johnson said.
Johnson added that the Bahamas is now a member of the National Association of Black Hotel Owners, Operators and developers ( NABHOOD). NABHOOD provides information about hotel ownership, investing, supplier opportunities and other resources.
The Bahamas is committed to the continued growth of this market and DAguilar alongside his ministry will continue to build mutually beneficial relationships with stakeholders, corporate decision makers and leaders in key community based organization such as sororities, fraternities and social clubs.
The Bahamas will also increase advertising in key African American magazines and digital platforms and develop sponsorship and branded special events in key markets in an effort to reach more business and leisure travelers.
Our heightened focus on the African American travel market comes at an opportune time when The Bahamas tourism product is being holistically re-calibrated, overhauled and fine-tuned. There are particularly five areas of product improvement that will make The Bahamas particularly attractive to the African American Market, DAguilar said.
He went on to say, The growth of our tourism business is best achieved through expanding our niche markets. For us, the African American travel market is a highly attractive market segment. The Bahamas has been a choice destination where African Americans have been coming for years, to rest, relax and rejuvenate. We will continue to work on all fronts to maintain a very desirable tourism product and to pay close attention to those areas of our product mix that appeal to the African American market.
The Bahamas has already committed to several key partnerships with the African American community including a media partnership with Black Enterprise, which will host its first offshore event called the Women of Power Weekend Retreat in Bimini in October 2017.
Membership with the National Coalition of Black Meeting Planners (NCBMP), participation in the Black Caucus week of events held in Washington D.C. and the partnership with Radio One to reach the African American audience via radio in key markets such as Chicago, New York, Atlanta, Washington DC, Los Angeles and Miami/Fort Lauderdale will all continue.
