As for Italy. This is how I planned by trip: Fly in to Rome; Fly out of Florence a week later.

Nike (NKE) has enjoyed a nice rebound from a brutal 2016, when shares fell 20% and the company was the biggest loser in the Dow. That was mainly because of sluggish sales and growing competition in the United States from German rival Adidas.But Nike’s recent strength may surprise some people.It comes despite the fact that Nike president Trevor Edwards, who many viewed as a likely successor to CEO Mark Parker, stepped down in March following workplace misconduct allegations. Edwards was one of several execs to leave Nike.It’s also not as if Nike is profiting at the expense of its competitors.Under Armour (UA), who sells sneakers endorsed by LeBron rival Steph Curry of the Warriors, has bounced back this year too, largely because of strength in international markets.

I am teaching my son to be respectful and kind. I hope he grows into a man that supports and defends women instead of shaming them, or somehow thinking that a woman who has not met some arbitrary and unreasonably high standard of self protection is now an open invitation to be taken advantage of. Obviously we should teach our kids to look both ways before crossing the road, but we do it so they can avoid being hit by someone not paying attention, not because they should be constantly worried about someone intentionally trying to run them down, and in the case of someone intentionally running another person down, “you should have been looking out for me, so it’s partially your fault that I hit you” is not a defense.
