When Mutual-Fund Values Get Muddy

Saturday 09:54 GMT

The issue: Unlike an open-ended mutual fund, a closed-end fund doesn’t give you your money back at net asset value when you sell; instead, you must find a third-party buyer for your shares on a stock exchange.

A former mutual fund that Highland converted to a closed-end fund last year, Highland Floating Rate Opportunities, traded this week at a 4% discount to its net asset value; the average fund in that category, according to Highland, trades at an 11% discount.

The punk turtle: the reptile with a green mohican became a sensation, but still faces an uncertain future

Saturday 03:20 GMT

An eccentric and yet strangely human-looking reptile with a vivid green mohican, fleshy “fingers” under its chin and the ability to breathe through its genitals.

When the turtle became famous, T-shirts were printed and sold, and Melbourne’s punk music scene held a concert to raise funds. Non-native plants prevent it laying eggs in sandy river banks; non-native foxes and dogs predate it.

The Modern NFL Is Moving Beyond the ‘Blind Side’ to a New Guard

Saturday 03:20 GMT

“The days when you could sit in there as a guard and not have to block every snap of pass protection, those days are fewer and farther in between,” said Steve Fairchild, a former NFL offensive coordinator and college head coach.

Without much fanfare, the Colts traded down from No. 3 to No. 6 and selected a very large man, who plays a position NFL minds have historically regarded as unimportant. The Jets traded up to grab quarterback Sam Darnold at No. 3. The Giants seemingly forgot they needed a quarterback and took running back Saquon Barkley a pick before that.

Seattle is running the ball on 52.3% of its plays this season—making it the only team in the past three years that is running the ball on more than half of its plays. The difference between the Seahawks, who lead the NFL in rushing yards, and the No. 2 rushing team is bigger than the gap between the No. 2 and No. 13 teams.
