Trump on latest North Korean missile tests: 'Nobody's happy about it'

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Thursday said he wasn’t pleased to hear reports that North Korea had launched two short-range missiles overnight.

“They were smaller missiles, short-range missiles,” Trump told reporters at the White House. “Nobody’s happy about it, but we’re taking a good look, and we’ll see.”

“The relationship continues, but we’ll see what happens,” Trump added. “They want to negotiate, they’re talking about negotiating, but I don’t think they’re ready to negotiate.”

Thursday’s firing was the second in less than a week. Just days ago, North Korea launched several unidentified projectiles, the first confirmed rocket launches Pyongyang had conducted since 2017.

Trump compared the stalled North Korean negotiations to his current trade talks with China, which are underway this week in Washington.

“It’s very much like China, we were getting very close to a deal, and then they started to renegotiate the deal, and we can’t have that,” Trump said.

Burger King takes on McDonald's with a range of 'unhappy' meals

No one is happy all the time. That’s the message Burger King is trying to communicate with a lineup of burger meals focused on “real” moods to help raise awareness about mental health. Timed to Mental Health Awareness Month in May, the “Real Meals” include the Blue Meal, Salty Meal, Yaaas Meal and DGAF (Don’t Give a F—) Meal. They include a Whopper, french fries and a drink. “Burger King restaurants understands that no one is happy all the time. That’s why they’re asking guests to order a Whopper meal based on however they might be feeling,” an online release says.

The effort also pokes fun at McDonald’s, which markets Happy Meals, boxed kids’ deals that include a toy. Burger King launched an ad on YouTube showing a montage of people in various emotional states, using the line: “No one is happy all the time. And that’s OK.” The ad swaps Burger King’s well-known chorus from the 1970s, “Have it your way,” with “Feel your way.” The music also has been changed to be more authentic to the idea that people can have a range of feelings. This isn’t the first time Burger King has teased McDonald’s. In December, it sold its trademark Whopper for 1 cent. To get the deal, customers had to download the Burger King app on their phones. Then when they went within 600 feet of any of more than 14,000 McDonald’s restaurants, the app used geolocation technology to “unlock” the Whopper-for-a-penny deal.

The fast-food competitors have also launched rival promotions at similar times and tweak their menus to stay on top of trends. Burger King is trying a vegetarian Whopper, while McDonald’s added a meatier burger to its breakfast menus in October. Burger King, which is owned by Restaurant Brands International, has partnered with Mental Health America for the campaign. The group’s president and chief executive, Paul Gionfriddo, said: “While not everyone would think about pairing fast food and mental health, MHA believes in elevating the conversation in all communities in order to address mental illness Before Stage 4 (when someone has severe symptoms).” “By using its internationally-known reputation to discuss the importance of mental health, Burger King is bringing much-needed awareness to this important and critical discussion — and letting its customers know that is OK to not be OK.” On Monday, Burger King reported a same-store quarterly sales increase of 2.2 percent. It said that price hikes on its nuggets and the reintroduction of its spicy chicken nuggets helped sales, but parent company Restaurant Brands International saw adjusted earnings of 55 cents per share, falling short of estimates of 58 cents per share. McDonald’s latest quarterly earnings, issued Tuesday, beat estimates, with earnings of $1.78 per share, versus an expected $1.75. It said a range of promotions and an investment in self-serve kiosks and other technology helped it beat expectations, though it noted that tech spending will mean higher expenses this year. The limited-edition Burger King meals will be available in Seattle, Miami, Los Angeles, New York City and Austin, Texas, while supplies last.

PayPal Ventures invests $11 million in retail start-up Happy Returns

PayPal’s venture capital arm is investing $11 million in Happy Returns, marking the largest funding round to date for the online returns service and bringing its total to $25 million.

“It’s a huge validation for us,” Happy Returns co-founder and CEO David Sobie said in an interview. “It speaks to the broader challenge, or mission PayPal has, to make e-commerce as easy and frictionless as possible.”

Happy Returns operates more than 350 Return Bars in malls, on college campuses and even inside stores like Cost Plus World Market and Paper Source for shoppers to return items bought online when the brand doesn’t have its own physical store. Rothy’s, Untuckit, Everlane and Eloquii are among the brands working with Happy Returns. For retailers, Happy Returns optimizes routing returns to different end-destinations based on the condition of the goods and rules each retailer sets.

“Happy Returns has reengineered the return process with the customer in mind and that brings greater cost savings and efficiencies to merchants,” said Robert Clarkson, vice president, North America at PayPal. “Working with Happy Returns will help us learn more about how returns can decrease the friction in shopping online and how to help merchants address this growing problem.”

Returns are a growing problem for retail as more commerce moves online. According to Sobie, shoppers return 5% to 10% of what’s purchased in store, but 15% to 40% of online purchases. Digitally native brands that are building up their shopper base but don’t have any, or many, physical locations means mailing returns back to the company is the main option for shoppers. But Happy Returns want to step in and offer a solution.

PayPal Ventures has also invested in online gift card marketplace Raise, web-based food ordering platform Olo, loan app Tala and investing platform Acorns.

Disclosure: NBCUniversal and Comcast Ventures are investors in Acorns.

Billionaire Jeff Bezos: To live a happy life with no regrets by age 80, ask yourself these 12 questions

What’s the secret to a long, happy and successful life? That seems to be a question we ask ourselves over and over.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has shared his thoughts on this very topic many times — and he might just be onto something.

“When you are 80-years-old, and in a quiet moment of reflection narrating for only yourself the most personal version of your life story, the telling that will be most compact and meaningful will be the series of choices you have made,” Bezos said in his 2010 commencement speech at Princeton University.

The purpose of his speech, called “We Are What We Choose,” was to emphasize the difference between gifts and choices: “Cleverness is a gift, kindness is a choice. Gifts are easy — they’re given after all. Choices can be hard. You can seduce yourself with your gifts if you’re not careful, and if you do, it’ll probably be to the detriment of your choices.”

In other words, no matter how successful you become, what you’ll end up caring about the most in hindsight isn’t the number of zeroes in your bank account, but it’s the choices you made to get where you are.

But without the benefit of hindsight, how can we tell if we’re on a path that we’ll be proud of when we look back on our lives 10, 20 or 30 years from now?

85% of American workers are happy with their jobs, national survey shows

85% of American workers are happy with their jobs, national survey shows

You might not expect it, but the majority of the American workforce is a pretty happy lot. This was revealed in the first CNBC/Survey Monkey Workplace Happiness Index, announced at the @Work Talent + HR Summit on Tuesday.

The quarterly index measures how Americans feel about their jobs across five key categories — pay, opportunities for advancement, recognition, autonomy and meaning. CNBC and SurveyMonkey poll 8,664 professionals nationwide across a wide swath of industries March 13–18. Data has been weighted for age, race, sex, education, employment status and geography using Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey to reflect the demographic composition of United States employed population.

The CNBC/SurveyMonkey Workplace Happiness Index is an optimistic 71 out of 100, while the survey found 85 percent of respondents are either somewhat or very satisfied with their jobs.

“Meaningfulness” was the biggest contributor to overall happiness, with 17 out of 20 possible points contributed to the overall index score of 71. Recognition, or how much colleagues value employee contributions, added 15 points, and autonomy, or work/life balance, added another 15. Opportunities for advancement was the biggest “drag” on the overall index.

Despite the overall optimism, only 9 percent of workers gave top ratings across all five categories of the Workplace Happiness Index. Twenty-seven percent of workers surveyed say they are not well paid, and 30 percent have seriously considered quitting their job in the last three months.

“Our study clearly reveals that workplace happiness is richly nuanced. While a big majority of U.S. workers are at least somewhat satisfied with their jobs, there are a lot of negatives when it comes to how people relate to their work,” said Jon Cohen, SurveyMonkey’s chief research officer.

The survey found that providing workers with opportunities to advance their careers may be the best way to keep them from leaving. Just 13 percent of workers who say their companies provide “excellent” opportunities for advancement were thinking of quitting their jobs. But there are no guarantees, and the survey did not reveal a single solution to keeping employees happy.

“If companies want to hire and retain great employees, they need to open up feedback loops to get at the ‘why’ —learning what makes people happy and productive,” Cohen said.

Survey Methodology: This SurveyMonkey online poll was conducted March 13-18, 2019, among a national sample of 8,664 workers in the United States. Respondents for this survey were selected from the more than 2 million people who take surveys on the SurveyMonkey platform each day. The modeled error estimate for this survey is plus or minus 1.5 percentage points. Data have been weighted initially for age, race, sex, education, and geography using the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey to reflect the demographic composition of the United States age 18 and over, then weighted for age, race, sex, education, employment status, and geography using Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey to reflect the demographic composition of United States employed population. Full results available here.

A happy retirement is more than just money

What you will need to budget for once you retire 10:14 AM ET Wed, 27 Feb 2019 | 00:48

Daunting numbers indeed, but these conditions speak to priorities undertaken years earlier. Many families would list education as their No. 1 goal, and given the exorbitant cost of college tuition, it only makes sense that their nest egg is less than robust.

This is an important distinction to make, that insufficient retirement savings could be more a function of conscious decisions made in the past than a failure to behave responsibly.

More from Fixed Income Strategies:

Now may be the time for bonds in portfolios

Surprising spending truths could upend your retirement

Financial worries prevent earlier retirement for many

Furthermore, saving for retirement is not as easy as advertised.

Glossy financial planning brochures with couples in their mid-50s riding a sailboat notwithstanding, this is simply an unrealistic expectation for many households. Given our increasing life expectancy, accumulating enough money in 35 to 40 years of working to sustain us for the remainder of our lives is no easy task.

To put this into perspective, if you take out 5 percent from a diversified portfolio each year, you stand a 58 percent chance of running out of money within 30 years of retirement.

After all, anyone taking withdrawals during the 2008 housing crisis would have a dramatically different outcome than investors who retired in 2009 and lived off market returns in the beginning of retirement. Volatility matters. This would suggest that you need $2,000,000 saved to generate $100,000 in annual income.

It’s also worth mentioning that distributions from retirement accounts are subject to ordinary income taxes. In other words, there’s a fair chance that a great many savers — unless they make lifestyle sacrifices or wiser investment decisions or have an actual pension — won’t be able to maintain their current quality of life once they leave the workforce.

Cathay Pacific says it’s ‘very happy’ with its Boeing fleet, despite recent 737 Max crash

U.S. plane manufacturer Boeing has been mired in controversy since its 737 Max 8 operated by Ethiopian Airlines crashed minutes after takeoff on Sunday, killing all 157 people on board. Despite recent safety concerns surrounding the 737 Max 8, Cathay Pacific’s CEO said Thursday he was “very happy” with the Hong Kong-based carrier’s Boeing fleet.

Cathay Pacific says it's 'very happy' with its Boeing fleet, despite recent 737 Max crash

U.S. plane manufacturer Boeing has been mired in controversy since its 737 Max 8 operated by Ethiopian Airlines crashed minutes after takeoff on Sunday, killing all 157 people on board.

Despite recent safety concerns surrounding the 737 Max 8, Cathay Pacific’s CEO said Thursday he was “very happy” with the Hong Kong-based carrier’s Boeing fleet.

Speaking to CNBC’s “Squawk Box Asia,” Rupert Hogg said “about 50-50” of the airline’s fleet is made up of Boeing and Airbus planes — namely, the Boeing 777, Airbus A350 and A330. The airline does not fly the Boeing 737 Max.

“It is a tragedy, but we’re very happy with both sets of aircraft that we have,” Hogg said, in reference to Sunday’s deadly crash.

The fatal accident involving Ethiopian Airlines flight 302 — which killed all 149 passengers and eight crew members — comes less than five months after the same model plane operated by Indonesia’s Lion Air crashed shortly after taking off from Jakarta, killing all 189 on board.
