Body of missing CDC worker Timothy Cunningham found nearly 2 months after disappearance

first_imgCDC(ATLANTA) — A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention employee has been found dead nearly two months after he mysteriously vanished, authorities said Thursday.The body of Timothy Cunningham, 35, was found Tuesday night in the Chattahoochee River, according to the Atlanta Police Department. Additional information was not immediately available. Cunningham, a commander in the Public Health Service who responded to public health emergencies including the Ebola virus and the Zika virus, disappeared on Feb. 12 after he said he was sick and left his Atlanta office. All of his belongings, including his dog, were left at his home, according to police and ABC affiliate WSB.“This is an extremely unusual set of circumstances,” Maj. Michael O’Connor of the Atlanta Police told reporters in February.“The most unusual factor in this case is that every single belonging that we are aware of was located in the residence,” O’Connor said. “His keys, his cell phone, credit cards, debit cards, wallet, all his identification, passport — everything you can think of, we’ve been able to locate. None of those items are missing.” In March, Cunningham’s sister, Tiara, told ABC News that her parents were “remaining positive and prayerful.”“I have been trying my best to go through daily activities such as work without getting distracted,” she said. “But no one can really prepare you for seeing your face or your brother’s face on the news while at work.”This story is developing.

Denmark’s PFA stays underweight in EM equities as China risk looms large

first_img“If China were a traditional market economy, the risk of a financial crisis with a big fall on the housing market and in investments would be imminent,” Henriksen said.For the time being China’s leaders had managed to keep the crisis at bay, he said, but despite this, investors probably had to adjust to a gradual slowdown in China in the coming years.“Chinese growth indicators are at a lower level than before and so we expect that growth in China will drop in the next few years,” he said.“This is one of the reasons we are underweighting emerging markets shares in our portfolios,” Henriksen said.He said PFA had been underweight in emerging markets equities for a long time.PFA Pension, which has total investment assets of DKK400bn (€53.6bn) has DKK2.7bn invested in Chinese assets, primarily through Hong Kong, with DKK2.5bn of this in equities and DKK200m in bonds.The pension fund invests in China primarily through external managers and does not have an QFII License to invest directly in Chinese financial markets.After a year of strong price rises for Chinese equities, shares fell significantly in June and July of this year, and the Chinese authorities had taken a number of different steps to try to halt this slide, Henriksen said.Interest rates and banks’ reserve requirements have been cut several times over the last year, and the authorities in July also intervened to stop trade in some shares and prevent large shareholders from selling their stock.Last week, the People’s Bank of China also devalued the renminbi to bolster Chinese competitiveness, Henriksen noted.Although the Chinese leadership had demonstrated once again that it was ready to use all means to prevent an economic hard landing, the question was whether this could continue, he said.“The Communist party has a monopoly on political power in China, but that monopoly could be threatened the day China is hit by a serious economic crash,” Henriksen said.Meanwhile London-based investment advisers CrossBorder Capital, commented that while China’s decision to devalue currency may look like a small token move, the parallel acknowledgement that the rate would in future be more determined by market forces was significant.“It surely acknowledges what many of us have feared that world markets are in a currency war,” it said.However, Jan Dehn, head of research at investment manager Ashmore dismissed the argument that China had joined the global currency war and would export deflation to the rest of the world. Instead, China was pursuing a far more constructive, rational and forward-looking strategy, Dehn said.“This strategy involves, amongst other things, achieving global reserve currency status in the near-term.”Dehn said: “For this reason, China has absolutely no interest in abusing its own currency via competitive devaluations.” Denmark’s biggest commercial pension fund PFA is remaining underweight in emerging market equities due to of the continuing uncertainty surrounding Chinese economic growth.Henrik Henriksen, chief strategist of PFA Pension, said China would be the key risk facing investors over the medium-term.“The biggest risk for the global economy in the next three to five years, is a hard landing in the Chinese economy,” he said.Since the financial crisis there had been a hefty increase in debt in the Chinese economy, he added.last_img read more

Sturridge puts faith in team-mates

first_img “He’s done extremely well. He’s working hard and I’m proud of him as his ‘older brother’ to look at him and see how well he’s done,” Sturridge told LFCTV. “I just hope he continues to work hard and play in the way he has because he’s improving every single day. “He takes it in his stride – he doesn’t get too big-headed, he doesn’t get overly confident with anything. “I take him under my arm when he goes through difficult times as well, but I give him all the credit in the world and I’m really proud of him.” Sterling’s cool finish, sliding the ball past Adrian from Coutinho’s inventive pass, suggested he is developing into a better goalscorer but it was not until Sturridge arrived that Liverpool possessed the threat up front which has been lacking for most of the season. West Ham have not won at Anfield since 1963 but, heading into the game above their hosts, they would have fancied their chances. For that to happen though they needed their big players, ex-Reds Andy Carroll and Stewart Downing and striker Enner Valencia, to be on top form. The former landed flailing forearms on Emre Can and Lazar Markovic in the first half and a high foot on Can which resulted in a booking and an injury which forced Carroll off soon after. Downing was overwhelmed in midfield while Valencia got no joy out of Martin Skrtel. And while Liverpool are unbeaten in seven league matches and have won three in a row for the first time since April, West Ham manager Sam Allardyce sees only problems ahead. Injuries continue to mount as Carroll, Winston Reid and James Collins were added to a list which already includes Carl Jenkinson, Cheikhou Kouyate and James Tomkins, while Diafra Sakho continues to be sidelined while their dispute with Senegal works its way through FIFA’s disciplinary channels. “Our position in the Premier League is virtually safe but we are trying to maintain where we are with a winning mentality,” he said. “We have the FA Cup the week after next so we have to get all these players fit if we are going to maintain the level of results and performances we have been producing up to now.” Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge believes talented team-mates will make it easier for him to continue to score goals as he makes his return from injury. The 25-year-old ended five months of injury frustration with the second in the 2-0 win over West Ham, finding the net with a clinical finish just 12 minutes after coming on as substitute. Playmaker Philippe Coutinho, who laid on the first for Raheem Sterling, returned the ball to the England striker after he had cut in from the right and despite a 153-day absence with thigh and calf problems he produced a brilliant first touch and a devastating second to suggest his predatory instincts have not diminished while he has been away. It was his 37th goal in 53 appearances since joining the club two years ago – a period in which he has had his fair share of injuries. Critics may have suggested many of his 24 goals last season came courtesy of the even more prolific Luis Suarez but now that partnership with the Uruguay international is no more Sturridge hopes he can link up just as effectively with other players. “It was a great feeling to help my team-mates get three points,” he said. “That’s the most important thing – to just be out there and helping the team win games. “It was great play by Coutinho. We have a great relationship in terms of he knows my runs and I know the types of passes he likes to play as well. He makes my job easier. “Once I saw him cut inside I knew the ball would come and it was just a case of getting it under control and hitting the target.” In Sturridge’s absence Sterling has been pressed into the role of central striker, mainly to utilise his blistering pace, and a return of five goals in his last 10 games suggests he has not done too bad a job. He will now drop into a slightly withdrawn position to accommodate Sturridge but is still expected to continue contributing goals. Press Associationlast_img read more
