Buffett’s bumpy ride with the airline industry

Berkshire Hathaway’s loan to USAir, in the form of a purchase of preferred stock, was almost five years old when Warren Buffett told the 1994 shareholders meeting it was a deal he should not have made. He held out hope, however, that the airline’s CEO might be able to cut costs in what he acknowledged would be an “enormously tough negotiating job.”

College student cryptominers are finding it harder to turn a profit as costs rise, bitcoin falls

College student cryptominers are finding it harder to turn a profit as costs rise, bitcoin falls

College students are finding it’s harder to turn a profit by mining cryptocurrencies. Even with universities footing the energy bill, it’s getting more expensive to break into the mining business. Equipment prices are soaring, even as digital currencies fall.

“It’s gotten pretty ludicrous now the amount of money you have to spend to get in,” Alex Gilarde, a senior at Fairleigh Dickison University said.

Cryptocurrencies are created by a process called “mining.” Essentially, computers solve complex mathematical equations. In exchange for lending their computing power, miners get digital coins. They can exchange those for other cryptocurrencies, hold onto them, or cash out.

But cryptomining takes up a lot of energy and computing power. So reliable electricity and hardware are a must.

The price of graphics cards from companies like AMD and Nvidia has skyrocketed alongside bitcoin’s rise to the mainstream. The graphics cards have been traditionally marketed toward online gamers, but cryptominers need the hardware to build their mining rigs too. The demand for those cards has gotten so high that miners and gamers alike are struggling to get their hands on them.

Gilarde has been mining cryptocurrencies since 2012. He said he was pretty “tech-savvy” in high school, so when he and his friends hard about cryptomining, they decided to give it a try. At the time, the price of one bitcoin was less than $5.

In total, Gilarde said he spent around $4,000 to $5,000 on hardware to build his mining rigs. From the start, he’s been finding ways to stretch his investment.

“When I started mining cryptocurrencies and going onward, I would do it in my parents house and in our own school actually after school. I would leave my laptop in different corners of the school,” Gilarde said.

“They didn’t really know I was doing it, and since when we first started off it wasn’t really a big phenomenon, they kind of just let it go. It wasn’t really the electricity sapping phenomenon it is today.”

Now, he has three rigs running in his dorm room 24/7, and another still back at his parents’ house. Gilarde said he takes out anywhere from a couple hundred to a thousand dollars from his digital wallet every couple of months. That’s enough for him to pay for part of his tuition and diversity his investment portfolio.

But the price of bitcoin has been falling this year. The digital currency has lost more than half its value since its peak in late 2017. And other cryptocurrencies are following suit.

Oil: Iraq bumps up the date for awarding new contracts to April 15

Iraq plans to award oil and gas exploration and development contracts in 11 new blocks on April 15, oil ministry spokesman Asim Jihad said on Sunday.

Iraq had initially set June 21 as the date to open the bids for the new blocks, located in border areas with Iran and Kuwait, and in offshore Gulf waters.

Bidding documents will be made available to oil companies planning to make offers on April 13, Jihad told Reuters. The offers will have to be submitted on April 15 and the winners will be announced the same day, he added.

The oil ministry announced on Thursday measures to reduce the fees received by the oil companies from the government in the new contracts.

The new contracts will exclude oil by-products from the companies’ revenues, establish a linkage between prevailing oil prices and their remuneration, and introduce a royalty element.

Oil producers in Iraq currently receive a fee from the government linked to production increases, which include crude and oil by-products such as liquefied petroleum gas and dry gas.

Hudson's Bay confirms data breach affecting Saks, Lord & Taylor customers

Hudson’s Bay said on Sunday that data from card payments in some of its Saks and

Lord & Taylor stores in North America had been compromised.

The Canadian retail company said it had identified the issue and taken steps to contain it, adding that “there is no indication” so far that the issue had affected the company’s

e-commerce or other digital platforms. According to a report in The Wall Street Journal, hackers are claiming to have stolen data from 5 million card holders.

Hudson Bay “has identified the issue, and has taken steps to contain it. Once the company has more clarity around the facts, it will notify customers quickly and will offer those impacted free identity protection services, including credit and web monitoring,” it added.

Customers will not be liable for fraudulent charges that may result from the issue, the company said.

The stores involved include Saks Fifth Avenue, Saks OFF 5TH and Lord & Taylor, the company said.

“The company is working rapidly with leading data security investigators to get customers the information they need, and the investigation is ongoing,” Hudson Bay said in a statement, adding that it was “coordinating with law enforcement authorities and the payment card companies.”

Asia markets poised for muted open; China rolls out tariffs

Asia Pacific stocks were poised for a muted open on Monday, with several markets remaining closed for the Easter holiday. Meanwhile, new tariffs imposed on U.S. goods by China were likely to be in focus. Markets in Australia, Hong Kong and New Zealand will stay closed on Monday for the Easter holiday. Meanwhile, China said it was implementing tariffs on 128 types of U.S. imports starting Monday. That matched the list of products proposed by Beijing in March and comes as a direct response to U.S.

Asia Pacific stocks were poised for a muted open on Monday, with several markets remaining closed for the Easter holiday. Meanwhile, new tariffs imposed on U.S. goods by China were likely to be in focus.

Stocks in the region looked set for a subdued start on the first trading day of the quarter, with Nikkei futures traded in Chicago higher by 0.07 percent at 21,470 compared to the index’s last close.

Markets in Australia, Hong Kong and New Zealand will stay closed on Monday for the Easter holiday.

Meanwhile, China said it was implementing tariffs on 128 types of U.S. imports starting Monday. That matched the list of products proposed by Beijing in March and comes as a direct response to U.S. President Donald Trump signing off on tariffs on imported steel and aluminum last month.

CLEAR will use biometric data scanning to help fans make it to their games on time

Now, the company is trying to bring the same principle to various sports stadiums.

At ballparks, five National League teams (Mets, Braves, Marlins, Rockies, Giants) and four American League teams (Yankees, Tigers, A’s, Mariners) have partnered with CLEAR to let fans use the same service. Once enrolled, they can bypass lines and get into the stadium faster. Currently, CLEAR is also in effect at one NBA arena (Miami Heat) and one MLS stadium (New York City FC).

“CLEAR is all about using biometrics that can be your fingerprint, your iris image, or your face for a faster and more secure experience,” Becker told CNBC. “So you enroll once, so you’re always you. You can use your fingerprints (as ID) as opposed to always coming to your driver’s license.”

To join CLEAR, Becker explained that “you have to show up, verify your driver’s license and then connect your biometrics to it. And it takes less than five minutes.”

Becker compared the biometric technology to a bank machine, but for a security line. “Think of it as an ATM machine, it’s fast, you put your card in, or in this case your fingerprint and you go through.”

According to the company, becoming a member at the stadium and entering is free, and can be used immediately. To use the membership at airports, however, people must upgrade to the $179 fee.

Since CLEAR has a user’s unique biometric data, including fingerprints and eye scans, it raises the question of how will that information be stored and kept safe, especially in light of Facebook’s data privacy scandal.

“Privacy and data security is core to who we are and it’s our company’s DNA from Day 1,” Becker continued, “We do not sell or share our customer data.”

The Museum of the Future in Dubai is an architectural wonder 1 Hour Ago | 01:05

Dubai’s Museum of the Future is shaping up to be one of the world’s most complex structures.

The LEED-certified building is designed by Killa Designs and is scheduled to open in 2019.

The inspiration for the torus form comes from the idea of “Feng Shui,” where the building’s shape represents the earth and the sky and the empty space in the middle represents the unknown, according to the designer.

Arabic calligraphy inscribed on the building’s facade are the windows. And the builders borrowed techniques from the aviation industry for the smooth exterior, which is covered in 890 joint-free stainless steel and fiberglass panels. The only horizontal surfaces in the building are the floors.

This museum is not meant to hold artifacts of the past but instead is intended to be an incubator for innovation.

Walmart may have designs on Humana: Here's what could happen with a deal

Walmart has been making forays into consumer health care for more than a decade. Now, the nation’s largest retailer may be looking to play a bigger role in the sector by acquiring Medicare insurance giant Humana — just as its rival Amazon is increasingly making its own moves in the health care market.

The firms have held preliminary talks exploring a possible combination, including a potential merger, according to the Wall Street Journal. For Walmart, a deal to buy Humana would not come cheap: The health insurer had a market valuation of $37 billion, as of Thursday’s close. Aetna’s failed 2015 acquisition of Humana was valued at $54 billion.

Neither Walmart nor Humana replied to CNBC’s requests for comment.

“Humana is potentially an attractive asset for Walmart as it would help diversify its revenue stream,” Cantor Fitzgerald health insurance analyst Steven Halper wrote in a recent report, noting that the retailer and insurer already partner on a co-branded Medicare prescription drug plan.

“But our industry contacts suggest that Humana has been minimizing its relationship with Walmart recently,” Halper added.

Walmart may very well want to reinforce its partnership now, partly in response to retail pharmacy giant CVS Health’s $69 billion deal to acquire insurer Aetna, and health Cigna’s $54 billion proposed merger with pharmacy benefits manager Express Scripts. Additionally, there is a threat of online retailer Amazon’s potential entry into the pharmacy business.

Elizabeth Warren lashes out, says Trump 'chaos' harms Asia policy

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren says chaos in the Trump administration is harming its ability to formulate coherent policy toward North Korea’s nuclear program and other important issues in Asia.

Vacancies in the foreign service are undermining Washington’s ability to advance U.S interests, Warren told reporters in Beijing on Saturday.

U.S. allies, while still supportive, are “searching for information” about U.S. intentions in Asia, the Massachusets Democrat said.

“This has been a chaotic foreign policy in the region, and that makes it hard to keep the allies that we need to accomplish our objectives closely stitched-in,” Warren said.
