Brexit deal still out of reach as UK and EU enter last days of talks

Boris Johnson, U.K. prime minister, center, and Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission, right, depart following Brexit talks at a restaurant in Luxembourg, on Monday, Sept. 16, 2019.

The U.K. and EU are gearing up for what could be the busiest week in British politics since the referendum in June 2016, as both sides try to thrash out a last-minute deal.

It’s been over three years since a majority of the U.K. voted to leave the EU but a withdrawal agreement has proved elusive with various competing interests, logistics and visions of a potential post-Brexit relationship between the U.K. and EU.

This week is seen as the last in which a deal can be struck ahead of a two-day EU summit starting on Thursday October 17.

If no deal is agreed by October 19, the U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson is legally bound to ask the EU for a delay to the departure date (October 31) although he is very reluctant to do so.

Talks last week were meant to be the last chance for an agreement to be struck but EU negotiators are reportedly willing to keep talking until Wednesday, the eve of the EU summit, the BBC reported.

The U.K. Parliament is ready to meet on Saturday and vote on a Brexit deal if an agreement can be reached at the summit. It will be the first time Parliament has convened on a Saturday since 1982, amid the Falklands War.

Nonetheless, that all depends on the last-ditch talks to get over the largest stumbling block to a Brexit deal — namely the Irish “backstop” issue — an insurance policy to ensure there is no hard border on the island of Ireland in the event of no post-Brexit trade deal.

The off-season diet and workout plan that keeps one-handed NFL star Shaquem Griffin in shape

(He doesn’t wear the prosthetic when he plays in NFL games, but just for his workouts.)

Three of those days they spent focusing on the upper body, while the other two days were spent focusing on the lower body. On upper body days, the 24-year-old, who had his hand amputated at 4 years old due to a congenital birth defect, says he would wear a prosthetic to do exercises like pull-ups, rows and 225-pound bench presses.

He explains that he and his twin brother and teammate, Shaquill Griffin, worked out five days a week for 90 minutes to two hours, in their hometown of St. Petersburg, Florida.

To prepare for a strong second-year performance in the league, Griffin tells The Wall Street Journal that he followed a strict diet and workout routine during his off-season.

Shaquem Griffin is a Seattle Seahawks linebacker who, in 2018, made history as the first one-handed player to be drafted in the NFL.

Linebacker Shaquem Griffin #49 and cornerback Shaquill Griffin #26 of the Seattle Seahawks head off the field following the game against the Minnesota Vikings at CenturyLink Field on December 10, 2018 in Seattle, Washington.

Some days, he says, he and his brother would go to their father’s car towing shop to do tire flips, or to push cars. To recover from their workouts, he says they would get massages twice a week and visit a chiropractor every other week.

In addition to following a strict workout routine, Griffin says he and his brother also hired a chef to help them develop a healthier diet. For breakfast, they would have six egg whites, sweet potatoes, turkey bacon and sausage. After a workout, they would eat a protein bowl filled with brown rice, broccoli and chicken or steak. For lunch or dinner, he says they would eat fish or baked chicken with brown rice and roasted vegetables.

Each day, they would eat four or five smaller meals, rather than three big meals.

“I used to eat whatever I wanted, but I realized food is my fuel and affects my performance and recovery,” says Griffin, who admitted that cheesecake is still his “cheat day” item at times.

Though making adjustments to your diet and lifestyle can be difficult, the 24-year-old says having his brother as his workout partner made his process a lot easier. “When one of us gets tired, the other one motivates to get in another rep and push harder,” he says. “We keep each other competitive.”

In a 2018 essay published by The Players’ Tribune, Griffin explained how he and his brother’s support for each other dates back to when they were kids. And that wasn’t the only family support he received. He writes that growing up, his dad never treated him any differently from his siblings, and he never allowed any of them to make excuses for why they couldn’t do something.

He recalls the time when he, his brother Shaquill and their older brother brother Andre would play football in the backyard with their dad.

“We had a couple of stacks of cinder blocks with a stick across the top, like a hurdle,” he writes. “And when we would run routes, we would have to jump over the hurdle and do other obstacles mid-route. Then my dad would throw us the ball, and he’d throw it hard, right at our chest. And every time we dropped it, he would say, ‘Nothing comes easy.'”

Though Griffin admits that he “hated those workouts,” he writes that the three-word motto from his dad, “Nothing comes easy,” never allowed him to quit.

“There were definitely times when I wanted to quit,” he writes. “Sometimes, when my dad threw the ball so hard that it bounced off my chest or it hit me in the face, I would be like, ‘I don’t wanna do this anymore.'”

In response, he says, his dad would tell him, “You’ll thank me one day.”

“At the time, I didn’t believe him,” he writes. “Now, I understand, and I thank him every chance I get, because all that work in the backyard helped me to develop the mentality that I can handle anything — that whatever you come at me with, I can come back at you even harder.”

Chinese tourism growth slows as overseas travel loses its luster

XIAOSHAN AIRPORT, HANGZHOU, ZHEJIANG PROVINCE, CHINA: An outbound tourist group is waiting for check-in in front of the counter of China Customs. Chinese nationals have become the largest number of foreign tourists visiting other countries in 2015 as the number of outbound visitors crossed 120 million, registering an 11 million increase from last year.

BEIJING — The rapid growth of Chinese tourism took a bit of a breather during the latest week-long National Day holiday, government data indicate.

The seven-day vacation from Oct. 1 to Oct. 7 is dubbed “Golden Week” and is one of the few major government-mandated holidays in a country where personal vacation days are few. This year’s National Day was particularly significant domestically since it revolved around massive celebrations on Oct. 1 for the 70th anniversary of the Communist Party’s rule.

Chinese tourist sites received 782 million visits during the holiday, up well over 7% from last year’s 726 million, according to the Ministry of Culture and Tourism. But, that’s slower than reported growth of more than 9% in 2018, and down from a 10% increase in 2017.

Retail and food and beverage sales from Oct. 1 to Oct. 7 grew 8.5% to 1.52 trillion yuan ($212.7 billion), according to the Ministry of Commerce. While a solid figure, that’s a slower pace than the Commerce Ministry’s claims of nearly 10% or higher growth for previous years.

“Golden Week data point to a slowdown,” Ting Lu, Nomura’s chief China economist, said in the title of a report distributed Wednesday. “As China’s economy has become increasingly reliant on consumption to drive its growth, data from ‘golden weeks’ have become a good barometer of China’s consumption growth trend.”

Chinese authorities are trying to boost domestic consumption in an effort to support economic growth. Shortly after a major government meeting in March, authorities announced the May 1 Labor Day holiday would be extended by two days by swapping those working days with weekends, as is typical in China.

Tourism growth slowed during another golden week this year, the Lunar New Year holiday in February. Official numbers for overseas travel during that period were not clear about the actual rate of change.

Charles Schwab says he would never buy the money-losing companies going public these days

Investing legend Charles Schwab, founder and chairman of his namesake brokerage firm, said he would stay away from money-losing companies going public.

“I would never buy a company like that that has huge losses and no sight ahead of you [about] how you are going to make money,” Schwab said in an interview with CNBC’s Bob Pisani.

“You want to buy companies that have great values. That means number one they have to be growing in revenue and they have to be making money. Pretty simple formula and a lot of these companies just don’t make money yet,” Schwab said.

This year’s initial public offerings have been the least profitable of any year since the tech bubble. Uber went public in May, and reported a $1.8 billion loss ahead of its public debut. Lyft posted a 2018 loss of $900 million ahead of its March IPO. Both stocks are down more than 25% since their IPO date. WeWork also suffered a more than $900 million loss for the first six months of 2019 and pulled its IPO last week.

“Some of the IPOs we’ve seen with very large valuations based upon no earnings. That’s sort of an obvious place to look at [for potential bubbles]. You can avoid buying into those things and wait ’til they start making money,” Schwab said.

The hyper growth of those start-ups had led to extreme valuations in the private markets, but this year’s IPO market has served as a rude awakening as those companies’ market cap in the public markets has fallen way below their private valuations. Uber now has a market cap of about $51 billion, below its private valuation of about $76 billion just before its IPO in May.

CNBC’s Jim Cramer believes those IPOs pose a greater risk to the stock market than the U.S.-China trade war.

“Just say no to IPO,” Cramer said on Monday. “The market can’t handle another IPO. There’s just no money around.”

Three before you leave — What to watch for in the market Monday

President Donald Trump meets with China’s President Xi Jinping at the start of their bilateral meeting at the G20 leaders summit in Osaka, Japan, June 29, 2019.

Here are the most important things to know about Monday before you hit the door.

The first full trading week of the fourth quarter kicks off on Monday, and if the first few days were any indication, we’re in for some volatility ahead.

In the span of just two days the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped more than 800 points after U.S. manufacturing data missed estimates, sinking to its lowest level in more than a decade. It was also the second consecutive month that the index contracted.

But on Thursday the tide began to change. Stocks started a steady climb higher — boosted by a spike in the odds of another interest rate cut at the Fed’s upcoming October 30 meeting — which continued on Friday when U.S. unemployment data came in at its lowest print in more than 50 years.

But Thursday and Friday’s gains weren’t quite enough to erase the sell-off earlier in the week, and the Dow and S&P 500 ultimately posted their third straight week of losses.

The Dow dropped more than 800 points in two days — here's what's going on

Stock indices were nearing record high levels until October and the fourth quarter began. In the last two days, the U.S. markets have fallen broadly as investors began showing concern about fresh signs of an economic slowdown. The Dow Jones industrial average’s losses deepened on Wednesday, bringing its two-day decline to 838 points. The Dow has lost 3.1% so far this quarter, already wiping out the 1.2% gain of the third quarter. It still remains up 11.8% for the year.

Economy

The drop in the Dow began after a key measure of U.S. manufacturing saw its lowest reading in more than 10 years on Tuesday. September’s reading of manufacturing data from the Institute of Supply Management (ISM) came in at 47.85% – the second consecutive month of contract for the index. Any reading of the ISM index below 50% signals a contraction. Shortly behind last month’s slowdown in manufacturing was the month’s private payrolls report on Wednesday, which revealed that the pace of hiring is easing as the labor market continues to tighten. ADP and Moody’s Analytics said companies hired an additional 135,000 workers in September, a slowing from 157,000 hirings during the previous month. What’s more, the August numbers were revised sharply lower, as there were 195,000 more workers previously reported for the month.

Impeachment

The two economic warning signs come as President Donald Trump faces a push for impeachment from Democrats, which want to see Trump removed for allegations that he abused his power as president. The possibility of impeachment has been negative for U.S. stocks; although some investors say that if Trump is removed there may be a Clinton-like rally in equities. One of the main concerns from investors is that impeachment proceedings will undermine trade negotiations, especially with China. Last week Washington policy analysts warned clients that an impeachment inquiry is likely to waylay the U.S. from passing the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) or coming to a resolution with Beijing. With the escalating trade war weighing on U.S. companies, Wall Street remains concerned that Trump will not be able to reach a deal that would result in the removal of the tariffs on billions of dollars worth of imports.

Girls who appeared to be 11 to 12 seen with Jeffrey Epstein getting off his plane in 2018 as authorities eyed his travel abroad

An air traffic controller saw wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein getting off his private plane in the U.S. Virgin Islands with girls who appeared to be 11 to 12 years old in 2018, a year before Epstein was indicted on child sex trafficking charges, newly revealed government documents show.

Epstein, who is now dead, on other occasions was seen at the St. Thomas airport in the latter half of 2018 getting “off the plane with young girls,” including at least one other time when the air traffic controller saw him with a girl who appeared to be between 16 and 18 years old, documents show.

The air traffic controller told U.S. Marshals Service investigators about Epstein traveling with underage girls on July 10, 2019, a week after Epstein was arrested at a New Jersey airport on child sex trafficking charges.

Those same government documents reveal that six months before Epstein was arrested, the Marshals Service began investigating whether the registered sex offender had violated federal law by failing to disclose all the countries he visited.

One document shows that Epstein not only failed to tell officials of two other countries he ended up visiting, but that he also notified them of his planned travel just four days before he planned to leave the United States — which was 17 days less than the minimum amount of notice he was required by law to give.

The documents released by the Justice Department and Marshals Service were disclosed by the website MuckRock, which specializes in making public document requests and detailing their results.

On Wednesday, French national police published an appeal on Twitter for victims of Epstein and witnesses to possible crimes by him, such as rape of minors, come forward to aid an investigation in that country. Three victims already have contacted French authorities, the Paris prosecutor’s office said, according to the Associated Press.

Epstein, 66, died in August from what authorities have ruled a suicide by hanging in a federal jail in New York City. Epstein, a former friend of President Donald Trump and former President Bill Clinton, was being held without bail as he awaited trial in his case. His death remains under investigation by multiple agencies.

One of the documents released through MuckRock indicates that Epstein had no mental health concerns or suicidal tendencies at the time of his arrest in July.

But the Marshals Service detention report detailing Epstein’s 33 days in custody at the Manhattan Correctional Center says he had “mental concerns” and “suicidal tendencies” during his incarceration.

Epstein was found in late July on the floor of his cell with marks on his neck. He was placed on suicide watch for less than a week. Weeks later, he hanged himself, authorities have said.

An indictment issued in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York accused Epstein of sexually abusing dozens of minor girls from 2002 to 2005 at his massive townhouse on Manhattan’s Upper East Side and at his mansion in Palm Beach, Florida.

Epstein, who had pleaded not guilty in that case, had pleaded guilty in 2008 to a Florida state charge of procuring a person under age 18 for prostitution. He served 13 months in custody for that earlier case and was required to register as a sex offender.

Hurricane Dorian leaves at least 43 dead, hundreds missing in Bahamas as recovery efforts continue

Members of the Humanitarian and Disaster Relief (HADR) team from the Royal Fleet Auxiliary’s RFA Mounts Bay deliver supplies after Hurricane Dorian on the island of Great Abaco, Bahamas September 4, 2019.

Volunteers continue to search for victims and survivors after Hurricane Dorian blasted the Bahamas with Category 5 winds, decimating entire neighborhoods and effectively leaving more than 70,000 people homeless.

Five days after the storm struck the northern end of the Bahamas, the death toll is at 43 people and is expected to rise significantly. Hundreds more are missing on Grand Bahama and the Abaco Islands as charities, government organizations and even cruise lines rush aid to the area.

“Forty-three is the official count, many missing and this number is expected to grow significantly,” said Erica Wells Cox, a spokeswoman for Prime Minister Hubert Minnis.

Dorian, one of the most powerful hurricanes on record to hit the Bahamas, sat over the island for nearly two days earlier this week, wreaking havoc and raising questions over the role of climate change in producing more intense hurricanes that stall over targeted areas.

Trump campaign is cashing in on the Alabama ‘Sharpie’ controversy he keeps complaining about

The map was a forecast from August 29 and appears to have been altered by a black marker to extend the hurricane’s range to include Alabama.

The Trump Make America Great Again Committee is selling sets of five “Official Donald Trump Fine Point Markers” for $15. The controversy stemmed from Trump’s Sept. 1 tweet claiming Alaba

Trump campaign is cashing in on the Alabama 'Sharpie' controversy he keeps complaining about

U.S. President Donald Trump (R) references a map held by acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan while talking to reporters following a briefing from officials about Hurricane Dorian in the Oval Office at the White House September 04, 2019 in Washington, DC. The map was a forecast from August 29 and appears to have been altered by a black marker to extend the hurricane’s range to include Alabama.

President Donald Trump has spent days complaining about how the media has covered a doctored hurricane map he displayed — and his campaign is cashing in on the controversy.

The Trump Make America Great Again Committee is selling sets of five “Official Donald Trump Fine Point Markers” for $15.

The controversy stemmed from Trump’s Sept. 1 tweet claiming Alabama was in the path of Hurricane Dorian, which hit the North Carolina coast as a Category 1 storm Friday.

Critics and weather analysts pointed out the storm was in fact not projected to hit Alabama, but Trump continued to insist that he was right.

“In the early days of the hurricane, when it was predicted that Dorian would go through Miami or West Palm Beach, even before it reached the Bahamas, certain models strongly suggested that Alabama & Georgia would be hit as it made its way through Florida & to the Gulf,” Trump tweeted on Thursday. “Instead it turned North and went up the coast, where it continues now.”

Slow-moving Hurricane Dorian pounds the Bahamas as it inches towards Florida coast

Delray Beach police officer, Matt Warne, informs a driver that the road to the beach is only open to residents as Hurricane Dorian continues to make its way toward the Florida coast on September 02, 2019 in Delray Beach, Florida.

Wind gusts to tropical storm force are now occurring along the Treasure Coast of Florida, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center.

Dorian has been hitting the Bahamas for days, killing at least five people in the Abaco Islands in the northern Bahamas and inundating homes with floodwater ahead of its expected advance on the U.S. coast, where more than a million people have been ordered evacuated.

The slow-moving Hurricane Dorian, one of the most powerful Atlantic hurricanes on record, pounded Grand Bahama Island on Tuesday and is expected to continue to strike the area until the day’s end.

A tropical storm warning was issued Tuesday morning for the area spanning from North of Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, to Altamaha Sound, Georgia. The warning indicates tropical storm conditions are expected within the warning area within 36 hours.

There is also a storm surge warning in effect from Lantana, Florida, to the Savannah River, which borders South Carolina and Georgia, meaning there is a “danger of life-threatening inundation” during the next 36 hours.

Still, the hurricane weakened to a Category 3 on the five-step Saffir-Simpson Wind Scale early on Tuesday, with maximum sustained winds of 115 miles per hour (185 kph), the U.S. National Hurricane Center said. It was moving northwest at 1 mile per hour (1.6 kph), well below walking speed.

The exact toll of the devastation in the Bahamas will not be clear until the storm passes and rescue crews can get on the ground.

“We are in the midst of a historic tragedy in parts of our northern Bahamas,” Bahamian Prime Minister Hubert Minnis told a news conference on Monday. “Our mission and focus now is search, rescue and recovery.”

He added that the U.S. Coast Guard was on the ground in Abaco and had rescued a number of injured individuals. Critically injured people were being taken to hospitals on New Providence, the country’s most populous island.

As many as 13,000 homes in the Bahamas may have been destroyed or severely damaged, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies said.

Houses in a neighborhood in Freeport on Grand Bahama Island were engulfed by 6 feet (1.8 m) of water. “It looks like they’re boats on top of the water,” said Rosa Knowles-Bain, 61, a resident who fled two days ago to an emergency shelter.

Dorian was expected to churn towards Florida by the day’s end, before bringing its powerful winds and dangerous surf along the coasts of Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina by late Thursday.

Forecasters have told Floridians not to become complacent, as the storm is now predicted to stay off the coast.

“It’s not that far off shore,” said Robbie Berg, a forecaster and hurricane specialist with the NHC.

“All it has to do is jog a little bit west and you have a full-on hurricane rolling through Florida,” he said. “No one is out of the woods.”
