even sharing a flat when they first moved to London.

EXCLUSIVE: Body language expert Judi James says the Britains Got Talent host and his girlfriend are showing all the signs that theyre ready for the next step

Ant McPartlinseems happier than ever with his girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett.

Between all those sloppy PDAs during dog walks, their new matching pets and taking Dec Donnellys baby Isla out for a stroll, theres plenty of signs that theyre serious about each other.

But are they ready to take the next step together?

Body language expert and author Judi James certainly thinks so.

She believes Ant andAnne-Marieare showing all the signs that theyre in it for the long haul.

Here, she exclusively tells Mirror Online what the couples body language is giving away about the way they really feel…

There are subtle body language signals and cues that couples use to suggest theyre up for nesting and taking the next few steps in terms of confirming their couple status, and then there are the not-so-subtle ones, which are on display from Ant and Anne-Marie here.

First theres the way the duo are dressing alike, which is always an announcement of twinning, ie when two become one, as the Spice Girls would have said.

Then theres the shared his n hers baby substitute dogs, which are often the first trial step in starting a family together.

Then theres parental role play, which is in evidence here as Anne-Marie takes over buggy duties, walking alongside Ant as though trying the look out for size.

Lastly (did we need any more proof?) there is the kissing ritual PDA, a very open display of status from a couple who have needed to be discreet in the past.

Ant and Anne-Marie, who worked as his personal assistant, started dating after his split from wife Lisa Armstrong.

It was recently reported that Ant was splitting from best pal Dec by moving away from him for the first time in decades.

Ant is preparing to move into his new mansion, a 30-minute drive away from Dec.

The presenting duo have lived in each others pockets for most of their near-30 years working together on TV, even sharing a flat when they first moved to London.

They then bought houses next door to each other in Chiswick. And when Ant got married in 2006, he moved to a 2.3million house just a few streets away.

A year later screen partner Dec bought a 1.9million home in the same road just three houses along from Ant.

Even when Ant split from wife Lisa in 2017 and moved out of their marital home, the award-winning presenter rented nearby.

But this summer the 43-year-olds will be separated by an eight-mile, 30-minute drive when Ant moves to his South West London mansion, bought last year for 5.5million.

It is understood Anne-Marie, 43, will not join him because she already lives close by with her two children.

The Sunreports that Ants comeback will see him hostBritains Got Talentalongside his sidekick Dec with auditions beginning on 20 January.

Ant McPartlin will be returning to Britains Got Talent alongside Dec[ITV]

Its been an incrediblydifficult two-year period but he has been entirely focussed on turning his life around in order to return to work.

ITV is very excited about Ant and Dec being reunited but Ants recovery has been everyones first priority.

The news of Ants return comes weeks after Dec blasted claims that he is to rebrand as a solo act after successfully hosting the live editions of this years series of the hit ITV show.

Dec has been presenting without Ant since his rehab stint[ITV]

Since Dec flew to Oz to film Im A Celebrity alongsideHolly Willoughby, a report claimed he was set to rebrand and go it alone, meaning the pair would be parting company after decades in the business together.

Its believed the report was based on a new post forBritains Got Talent, which failed to mention Ant in an advertisement for next years show.

However, a pal of Decs revealed the pair splitting is total nonsense last month.

There is no rebrand of Dec as a solo act, he is very much looking forward to working with Ant again in 2019, a source close to Dec told Mirror.

Professional Athletes in the US Competing in a Charitable Sports Event

If you are a professional athlete temporarily in the United States to compete in a charitable sports event, you are an exempt individual for purposes of thesubstantial presence test.

If you qualify to exclude days of presence as a professional athlete, temporarily in the United States to compete in a charitable sports event, you must file a fully completedForm 8843, Statement for Exempt Individuals and Individuals with a Medical Conditionwith the IRS.

If you do not timely file Form 8843, you cannot exclude the days you were present in the United States as a professional athlete. This does not apply if you can show, by clear and convincing evidence, that you took reasonable actions to become aware of the filing requirements and significant steps to comply with those requirements.

Failure to timely file Form 8843 could cause a professional athlete to pass the substantial presence test. If a professional athlete passes the substantial presence test he has become aresident alien. A resident alien is subject to U.S. taxation of his entire world wide income. Thus, failure to timely file Form 8843 could result in a substantial increase in a professional athletes U.S. tax liability.

Five years ago, a unique all-female orchestra was formed in Afghanistan, a nation where only a few years previously music had been outlawed and women barred from education. Now Zohra is visiting the UK for the first time.

No-one claims that in Afghanistan, the Taliban influence has been rooted out entirely. Violence continues. But two decades ago, the Afghanistan National Institute of Music would have been unthinkable.

ANIM was founded in 2008, with international support, to bring music education to young Afghans. Not long before that, the Afghan capital Kabul had finally been wrenched from the grasp of the fundamentalist Sunni Muslim Taliban.

In the Taliban years, music – once a thriving and rich part of Afghan culture, admired around the world – had all but disappeared.

Today in Kabul, ANIM teaches music skills to some 250 young people, both male and female. That figure is about to rise to 320 and there are plans to expand to cities such as Herat, Mazar-e Sharif and Jalalabad.

About 70% of the young people at the institute come from disadvantaged backgrounds – some used to work the streets selling vegetables, plastic bags or chewing gum to support their families. Ages range from 12 to around 20.

But five years ago, ANIM founder by Dr Ahmad Sarmast was urged to start a new project specifically to benefit girls.

One of our students told me we needed a group of four or five girls to play pop music, he says. I liked the idea but almost at once it became clear most of the girls at ANIM wanted to join. Suddenly we were talking about a full orchestra.

For Afghanistan it was a new world. It wasnt just that the Taliban had made it impossible to perform or listen to music – the whole position of women in society was one of total repression.

The orchestra was named Zohra after a Persian goddess of music. Dr Sarmast is delighted its making a name for itself elsewhere. But above all it sends a message of gender equality to other Afghans.

Zohra creates a lovely sound but also its a symbol of the freedom of Afghan women. This is the message we take around the world.

There are around 100 female students at ANIM, 23 of whom have come to Britain. Their numbers will be doubled when they play in concert with the London-based Orchestra of St Johns and others. Instruments theyve brought with them include the sarod, the rubab, tabla drums and the dutar.

The music performed is a combination of traditional Afghan music and western classical. For instance, their new arrangement of Greensleeves contains attractive new instrumentation probably not envisaged by Ralph Vaughan Williams in 1934.

The conductor for the Afghan pieces is Negin Khpalwak, who at 22 is one of the older musicians in the group. She joined the school not long after it opened – not initially with the idea of conducting at all. As a chorister, she performed in Dubai and has also played and conducted in the US, India, Germany and Switzerland.

Its much easier for me to conduct when we play Afghan music, she says. Were very familiar with it and we play together easily.

If we perform something like Greensleeves – which I think is very well-known in England – we have to concentrate extra hard. All of us understand Western notation but we still have to practice a lot before our concerts in Oxford and London.

The ensembles highest-profile concert in the UK will be at the British Museum on Friday. But there are other events too before they head home.

Cayenna Ponchione-Bailey of the Orchestra of St Johns has arranged for University of Oxford students to mentor young musicians in Kabul – which until now has mainly been by Skype.

What I love about Zohra is that in some ways its like a traditional Western chamber orchestra – but also we have these marvellous Afghan instruments embedded, she says.

There are many things which music can achieve – and empowerment is definitely one of them. In Afghanistan, womens education continues to be precarious.

So its important that these girls and young women know they have a global support system. There are friends and a network which will support them as they assert their human rights.

Negin Khpalwak says even in Kabul, students can still sometimes encounter people beyond the school who think its wrong that the orchestra even exists.

They will say that in Islam women arent allowed to go to school, not just for music but to study anything. But its not true – women have their own rights and those people need to be educated.

Our music isnt the only way to do that – but its one way.

Waukegan Symphony Orchestra salutes dance music in concert

Director Search Finalist Reed Perkins will conduct the Waukegan Symphony Orchestra for its Dance! concert March 17 at Waukegan High Schools Trapp Auditorium.

Director Finalist Reed Perkins will lead the Waukegan Sympphony Orchestras third subscription concert of the season titled Dance! at 4 p.m. March 17 at Waukegan High Schools Trapp Auditorium.

Each of the orchestras four subscription concerts this season is conducted by a different finalist auditioning for the role.

Our upcoming concert highlights the irresistible influence of dance and dancing on the world of symphonic music by featuring lively, dance-inspired music of composers from Russia, Poland, Mexico and Czechia in music written for the opera house, concert hall and radio broadcast, said Perkins, who is a freelance conductor based in southeast Wisconsin. The repertoire we are playing is such fantastic, interesting and fresh music.

The first half of the program features three shorter works, beginning with the Polonaise from Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovskys opera Eugene Onegin, which premiered in 1879, followed by Polish composer Witold Lutoslawskis Little Suite for symphony orchestra, completed in 1951.

The suite is in four short movements, each based on folk melodies and dance tunes from southeast Poland, Perkins said. Its a charming and lively piece filled with fresh instrumental colors and unexpected harmonies.

Next is Mexican composer Jose Pablo Moncayos Huapango from 1941.

(It) is perhaps the most famous and beloved piece in the Mexican symphonic repertoire, Perkins said.

The diverse program concludes with Czech composer Antonin Dvoraks Symphony No. 6 in D major, written in 1880.

Although it was Dvoraks sixth full-length symphony, it was the first that he felt was worth publishing, Perkins said. I think its absolutely one of Dvoraks masterpieces, but for some mysterious reason it is rarely played. Its filled with all of Dvoraks best and most characteristic melodies, harmonies and orchestration.

And the work fits right in with the concerts dance theme, and not just in the general sense that as in other Dvorak works many of the melodies have a dance-like character.

More particularly, the third movement, the scherzo, is not just a fast-slow-fast scherzo but a furiant, Perkins explained. The furiant is a fiery traditional Czech dance, and this furiant is one of the highlights of Dvoraks symphony, wild and energetic and filled with unexpected syncopations and dynamic changes. Overall, the concert offers an interesting variety of pieces from the last two centuries.

All of these composers were brilliant orchestra composers, and each was inspired by dance and music for dancing, Perkins said. Its fun to hear how each composer expresses movement through sound, each in his own, individual style.

Of course, for a conductor, its always challenging to create a program for an orchestra that you havent worked with before.

I wanted to make a varied program that balanced old favorites, like Dvorak and Tchaikovsky, with music that the orchestra and audience may not have heard but will enjoy, such as the Moncayo and Lutoslawski, Perkins said. I considered many options, and this was my favorite.

He described it as a big, substantial program.

There are no easy pieces here, and the orchestra and I are working hard together to make a fine performance, Perkins said. They have a great work ethic, and I am enjoying the rehearsal process with them. I think our audiences will enjoy the results.

Each piece is different and each offers many levels of satisfaction and stimulation for expert and casual listeners, Perkins said. Beyond that, I hope the audience appreciates our orchestra and the gift that they give to the community when they perform. Thats a special thing for any community to have.

Currently, the orchestra has a strong core of dedicated players, Perkins said, who are willing to dive in and work hard on the most challenging and rewarding repertoire.

They are open-minded and responsive to new ideas and challenges, so Id like to build on that and help the orchestra continue to grow artistically, he said. I want to do all that I can to make the Waukegan area aware of their emphasis on their orchestra. Waukegan is a growing and diverse area, with substantial African-American and Spanish-speaking communities, and I want everyone to know that this orchestra is for them, as participants or as concertgoers.

Opportunistic thief steals brand new iPhone while owner chats with shop customer

This is the sneaky moment the opportunistic thief snatched a shop assistants iPhone XR as they talked with a customer. Nonthanan Khanthamthip, 23, put his own brand new smartphone on the counter while showing handsets to a male shopper at the department store in Bangkok, Thailand. CCTV footage from last Thursday (March 7) shows how the thief wearing a grey t-shirt was walking towards the booth when he noticed the expensive iPhone XR on the display counter. The thief, who pretended to be browsing, quickly grabbed the iPhone and after a few furtive glances, walked away inconspicuously while the stall owner was still busy talking. Nonthanan tried to run after the burglar and told the mall security guards about the incident after realised his phone was stolen, but the thief already slipped away. The iPhone owner then reported the police officers and showed the footage of the occurrence, wishing the guy to be arrested. Speaking in the video, Khanthamthip said: I was showing one phone to the customer while I was holding my own and it was getting difficult, so I placed my phone on the glass. Thats when the guy appeared, but I didnt see him. It was very busy because I had to take care of the stall on my own because the rest of the staff were on a break.

Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and similar platforms all offer their own video streaming services. But unlike YouTube, these services dont offer an optimal viewing experience. Finding a video that you saw yesterday on your feed becomes a tedious task.

You thus might want to download your favorite videos from Instagram or Twitter. But not many iPhone apps let you do that. And the few available options are riddled with ads and popups. Fortunately, theres a better way.

Using Apples own automation app Shortcuts, you can download videos from Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, as well as automate everyday tasks. Its quite simple. Let me walk you through it.

Solar Philippines: Taking a hit on microgrids for emerging economies is an investment for the future

The project uses 120 Tesla batteries connected in parallel at 1,800kW / 1,500kWh capacity. Image: Tom Kenning.

The economics of rural electrification using microgrids should be considered an investment for the future, akin to how Silicon Valley tech providers plough money into initially loss-leading products and services, the chief of developer and manufacturer Solar Philippines has said.

Last week, Tom Kenning, deputy editor at our sister site PV Tech, wrote anextensive and in-depth blogfrom a field visit to Paluan on the island of Mindoro, where a Solar Philippines offshoot company, SPSB(Solar Para Sa Bayan – Solar for the country), has executed a microgrid project that brings power to about 3,000 customers. The microgrid, which uses solar, batteries and diesel backup, is also anticipated to slash commercial electricity costs by half for local businesses.

From having just 3-8 hours of usable electricity each day, with a connection to a 5MW diesel plant some 30km away disconnected a decade ago due to transmission issues, the villagers will be able to run their homes and businesses from the new 2MW PV and 1.8MW / 1.5MWh energy storage plant, coupled with 1,260kW of diesel generation.

Solar Philippines has aggressively set about developing and executing large-scale and microgrid projects in the country as well as establishing PV module manufacturing capabilities. Company chief Leandro Leviste, son of a prominent senator, is enthusiastic about microgrids, while all of the local residents PV Tech spoke with seemed similarly enthused about the endeavour.

Leviste said that the downward trajectory of battery and PV module prices means microgrids for rural power access will reach economic viability sooner rather than later. In the meantime, he said, companies like his might have to be prepared to invest in scaling the technology to meet tomorrows demand rather than making projects capable of delivering big returns today.

The problem of the global microgrid industry is that it has limited itself to subsidized projects, which are limited by the imagination of policymakers. The only way to make microgrids scale today is to be willing to do unsubsidised, even initially loss-making projects, banking on both growth in demand and decrease in PV-storage costs to turn a profit over time, Leviste said.

Were betting our customers in Asia and Africa will one day have standards of living, and thus consumption, at even a fraction of what households in the US and Europe have today, and that our microgrids can help them reach that point sooner, so were effectively in the business of ending poverty.

Leviste later made a comparison with Silicon Valley technology providers, many of which operate under start-up conditions, funded by Venture Capital cash.

If it is acceptable for Silicon Valley companies to initially lose money as they invest in the long-term, it surprises me that not more companies take the same view for off-gridelectrification,when the impact on peoples lives are even so much greater. Were convinced of this opportunity which the solar and finance industries have largely missed, so are financing these unprofitable microgrids with proceeds of our profitable utility-scale business, as an investment that pays off over the long-term.

Capital flows to emerging market economies: A brave new world?

We study the determinants of private capital flows to emerging markets.

Growth and interest rate differentials and global risk appetite are key factors.

Net inflows became more sensitive to interest differentials after the 2008 crisis.

Capital controls introduced in recent years discouraged both net and gross inflows.

We find positive effects of Fed LSAPs on net and, especially, gross inflows.

We examine the determinants of net private capital inflows to emerging market economies (EMEs) since 2002. Our main findings are: First, growth and interest rate differentials between EMEs and advanced economies and global risk appetite are statistically and economically important determinants of net private capital inflows. Second, there have been significant changes in the behavior of net inflows from the period before the recent global financial crisis to the post-crisis period, especially for portfolio inflows, partly explained by the greater sensitivity of such flows to interest rate differentials since the crisis. Third, capital controls introduced in recent years do appear to have discouraged both total and portfolio net inflows. Finally, we find positive effects of unconventional U.S. monetary policy on EME inflows, especially portfolio inflows. Even so, U.S. unconventional policy is one among several important factors influencing flows.
