(Photo by Scott Cunningham/Getty Images)Mecole Hardman Jr. was a five-star member of Georgia football’s 2016 recruiting class. While the Dawgs are extremely run-focused under Kirby Smart, Hardman has made an impact.In the last two seasons, he’s hauled in 59 passes for 947 yards and 10 touchdowns. He’s also an accomplished kick returner, and made second-team All-SEC thanks to that effort.The numbers aren’t gaudy, but Jake Fromm has opened it up a bit more in the last few weeks. He also has serious measurables that will help him whenever that NFL Draft decision comes.While there has been some speculation that he could try his hand at the 2019 Draft, it might make sense for Hardman to come back to Athens add to his resume.Mecole Hardman recently sent out a cryptic tweet, and Georgia football fans are hoping it means he’ll spend another year at school.From Thursday evening:It’s still money to be made 4️⃣? pic.twitter.com/6hQuaSC75J— Mecole Hardman Jr. (@MecoleHardman4) December 13, 2018It is impossible to know exactly what he means but the easiest interpretation is probably that he intends to return. Or it could be nothing.Don’t tell UGA fans that.Please? Yes?

Ban rings Wall Street closing bell welcomes NY Stock Exchange to UN

“There are few better places than this trading floor for appreciating the realities global economic activity and investment trends. Shocks here ripple across the world, with grave consequences for the most poor and vulnerable” Mr. Ban said in his remarks just before ringing the closing bell on Wall Street to welcome NYSE Euronext to the UN Sustainable Stock Exchanges initiative. The Sustainable Stock Exchanges (SSE) Initiative explores how exchanges can work together with investors, regulators, and companies to enhance corporate transparency, and ultimately performance, on environmental, social and corporate governance issues and encourage responsible long-term approaches to investment. Since its creation in 2009, eight exchanges have joined, with nearly 13,000 listed companies in developed and emerging markets. “The addition of the world’s largest stock exchange to this group is a significant forward step, signalling the importance and relevance of sustainability to the private sector around the world,” Mr. Ban said.“But the world will need more exchanges, investors and companies to join forces with Governments and civils society if we are to achieve a more equitable, prosperous and sustainable future.” “The daily index of profit and loss is a measure of the hopes and plans of people from all walks of life – from the wealthiest investors to nurses and teachers looking forward to a comfortable retirement,” the Secretary-General said. He stressed that the private sector plays a central role in creating solutions for the world’s most pressing needs, and added that responsible business is essential to rebuild trust in markets, particularly after seeing the consequences of the global financial crisis. ‹ › Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon visits New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and rings the closing bell.

Mr. Ban noted that investors are increasingly realizing that development challenges such as climate change, poverty and inequality, are long-term risks that threaten stability and businesses, and are therefore embracing social, economic and environmental sustainability. “That is why the UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment now has more than 1,200 signatories who collectively manage over $34 trillion dollars in assets,” he said. “Each has committed to incorporate sustainability into their investment decision making, ownership practices and engagement with companies.” Mr. Ban, who will ring the NYSE bell today to close the markets, thanked NYSE Euronext for committing to the SSE initiative and urged stock exchanges around the world to follow its lead. read more
