SINGAPORE DeSean Jackson Jersey , Oct. 28 (Xinhua) -- Singapore shares closed 0.39 percent lower on Wednesday as investors cautiously waited for U.S. Federal Reserve policy decision later in the day.


The Federal Reserve is expected to keep interest rates unchanged this week and may be vague in its policy statement whether it will tighten monetary policy before the end of the year in the face of U.S. and global economic headwinds.


Singapore's benchmark Straits Times Index fell 12.02 points to 3,040.51 points. Trading volume was 1.02 billion shares worth 826 million Singapore dollars. Decliners outnumbered advancers 208 to 172, while 553 stocks did not move.


Oxley Holdings closed flat at 42.5 Singapore cents. The property developer reported a jump in net profit for first quarter to 35 million Singapore dollars from 10 million Singapore dollars a year ago. Its revenue also rose to 434 million Singapore dollars from 120 million Singapore dollars, led by revenue recognition from Oxley's industrial property development. Oxley declared an interim dividend of 0.5 Singapore cents per share.


Singapore Post Limited inched up 0.3 percent to 1.905 Singapore dollars. It said it would develop a shopping mall in Singapore at the construction cost of about 150 million Singapore dollars to accommodate online retailers. Being scheduled to be completed around mid-2017, the mall will allow customers to place their orders in the shop and arrange for delivery of products to their homes.


Among the top gainers, Jardine Matheson jumped 1 percent to 54.1 U.S. dollars, whereas Jardine Cycle and Carriage became one of the top losers by falling 2.7 percent to 32.40 Singapore dollars. (1 U.S. dollar equals to 1.40 Singapore dollars)


MADRID, March 7 (Xinhua) -- FC Barcelona have a rare midday kick-off when they entertain Rayo Vallecano on Sunday.


Last weekend saw Barcelona draw back to within two points of Real Madrid at the top of the BBVA Primera Liga table as they won 3-1 away to Granada, while Madrid could only draw 1-1 at home to Villarreal.


Barca got a further morale boost on Wednesday when they assured their fourth King's Cup final appearance in six years when they won in Villarreal by the same score.


The only setback on the night was an ankle injury suffered by Sergio Busquets who will miss Sunday's match. That injury will see Javier Mascherano step forward out of defense to partner with Andres Iniesta and Xavi Hernandez, while Marc Bartra could return to partner Gerard Pique in the Barca defense.


Meanwhile, Barca coach Luis Enrique will make his traditional rotation in goal with Claudio Bravo returning to play in the league after Ter Stegen made his customary appearance in the Copa del Rey.


Pedro Rodriguez will also get his chance in attack after Neymar saw his fifth booking of the campaign last weekend in Granada. Pedro has usually performed well when given the chance this season and has a good scoring record against Rayo.


The visitors travel to Barcelona on the back of their stunning 4-2 win at home to Levante last weekend which gave them a relatively comfortable cushion over the relegation zone. The highlight of the game were the four goals scored by Rayo striker, Alberto Bueno is a 15-minute first half spell, which made him the top-scoring Spaniard in the BBVA Primera Liga this season with 12 goals.


Rayo will look to play their traditional attacking football; a style which means they can be relied on to pick up enough points to survive, but which also leaves them open to some heavy defeats. Rayo coach Paco Jemez has said he wants his players to learn from Leo Messi on Sunday and unless his side are careful in attack, that could well be what happens.


Dismissed by former US president Barack Obama as a place explorers had already seen, the Moon has once again gained interest as a destination under Donald Trump's presidency.


Private sector companies in particular are energized by the prospect of future space exploration missions. Even though Trump himself has said little about the subject, his close circle and some former NASA officials have made clear their interest in returning to the Moon.


Billionaire Elon Musk, the president and chief executive of SpaceX, along with Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, who also runs a rocket company called Blue Origin, have met with Trump's advisors several times. "There is certainly a renewed interest in the Moon in the Trump administration," said John Logsdon, former director of the Space Policy Institute at George Washington University.


NASA's current focus is on developing what will be the world's most powerful rocket, known as the Space Launch System, which will propel a new capsule, Orion, to deep space, one day carrying people around the Moon, to an asteroid or even Mars by the 2030s.


Since the US-run space shuttle program ended in 2011, NASA has forged partnerships with private industry, including SpaceX and Orbital ATK, to resupply the International Space Station (ISS). SpaceX plans to start sending astronauts to the ISS as early as 2018.


SpaceX said last month it had signed its first contract to send two space tourists on a trip around the Moon at the end of 2018, but did not give many details. SpaceX has also vowed to send an unmanned spacecraft to Mars in 2018.


Meanwhile, The Washington Post reported that its owner Bezos is working on an Amazon-like delivery service to the Moon. The proposal has not been made public, but was circulated to the Trump team and NASA in the form of a white paper, the report said.


The goal of the project is to enable "future human settlement" on the Moon.


"It is time for America to return to the Moon - this time to stay," Bezos was quoted as saying in an e-mail to the Post.


The lunar soil is also believed to be rich in rare Earth minerals that are widely used in electronic devices.
