India's top court rules that disputed religious site will go to Hindus

A Hindu man walks past security personnel on a road in Ayodhya on November 9, 2019, ahead of a Supreme Court verdict on the disputed religious site.

India’s Supreme Court ruled on Saturday in favor of a Hindu group in a long-running battle over a centuries-old religious site also claimed by Muslims, in a verdict that could raise tension between the two communities.

The ruling paves the way for the construction of a Hindu temple on the site in the northern town of Ayodhya, a proposal long supported by Prime Minister Narenrda Modi’s ruling Hindu-nationalist party.

The five-judge bench, headed by the Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, delivered a unanimous judgement, opting to hand over the plot of just 2.77 acres (1.1 hectares) of land — about the size of a football field — to one of the Hindu groups that had staked claim to it.

The judge said a temple should be built on the disputed by forming a trust under the control of the central government.

The verdict will be seen as a political victory for Modi, who won a second term in a landslide general election win this year.

For more than seven decades, right-wing Hindu campaigners have been pushing to build a temple on the site, which they believe was the birthplace of Lord Ram, a physical incarnation of the Hindu god Vishnu.

They say the site was holy for Hindus long before the Muslim Mughals, India’s most prominent Islamic rulers, built what was known as the Babri mosque there in 1528.

The mosque was razed by a Hindu mob in 1992.

McDonald’s signs ‘long term’ deals for Texan wind and solar energy

McDonald's signs 'long term' deals for Texan wind and solar energy

McDonald’s has inked two power purchase agreements which will see the fast food giant buy renewable energy generated by wind and solar projects in Texas.

In an announcement Thursday McDonald’s described the agreements as “long term” and “large scale.” Construction on both projects is set to start over the next few months.

The firm said that the combined energy generated from its contribution to the projects was expected to come to 380 megawatts (MW). While the energy will not be routed directly to McDonald’s restaurants or offices, it will nevertheless add to the total renewable energy available to the grid. McDonald’s said energy produced by the facilities would equate to more than “2,500 restaurants-worth of electricity.”

The wind energy portion of the deal will amount to 220 MW and come from Aviator Wind West, which is part of the larger, 525 MW Aviator Wind project in Coke County. Facebook is also purchasing around 200 MW of energy from the Aviator Wind East part of the scheme. McDonald’s did not reveal the name of the solar project.

“These U.S. wind and solar projects represent a significant step in our work to address climate change, building on years of renewable energy sourcing in many of our European markets,” Francesca DeBiase, who is the chief supply chain and sustainability officer at McDonald’s, said in a statement.

McDonald’s has said it wants to cut greenhouse gas emissions related to its restaurants and offices by 36 percent by 2030, from a 2015 baseline.

It has also committed to a 31% cut in emissions intensity per metric ton of food and packaging across its supply chain by 2030 compared to 2015. The goals have been approved by the Science Based Targets Initiative.

McDonald’s joins a number of major U.S. firms signing renewable energy deals.

Last month Amazon announced three renewable energy projects, including its first in Scotland. The tech giant said the facilities would provide energy to its Amazon Web Services data centers.

And in March, Microsoft signed a 15-year power purchase agreement for the energy produced by a 74-megawatt solar power facility in North Carolina.

European traders demand shorter working day to improve culture and diversity

The professional bodies representing traders, the Association for Financial Markets in Europe (AFME) and the Investment Association (IA), have asked European exchanges to shorten trading hours by 90 minutes. Both the AFME and the IA argued a culture of long hours impacted traders’ mental health and wellbeing. She warned European trading risked lagging behind its global peers in terms of diversity and inclusion unless long hours were “tackled by an industry-wide approach.” While she acknowledged

European traders demand shorter working day to improve culture and diversity

Employees walk past FTSE AIM share price information displayed on an illuminated rotating cube at the atrium of the London Stock Exchange Group offices in London, U.K.

European traders have called for the London Stock Exchange and other European trading floors to shorten market hours to 9am until 4pm, in order to “improve culture, diversity and wellbeing.”

The professional bodies representing traders, the Association for Financial Markets in Europe (AFME) and the Investment Association (IA), have asked European exchanges to shorten trading hours by 90 minutes.

Europe’s current operating hours of 8am to 4:30pm are among the longest in the world, at 8.5 hours. U.S. markets are open for 6.5 hours and Asia just six hours, by comparison.

Traders are also expected to start their day “long before markets open and close.”

Both the AFME and the IA argued a culture of long hours impacted traders’ mental health and wellbeing.

In an industry known for its male-dominated culture and lack of inclusivity toward women, both bodies recognized long hours had become a “key obstacle in recruiting and retaining more diverse talent, in particular for those with a family or caring commitments.”

They hoped the proposed changes would improve traders’ work-life balance and would help create more “diverse and inclusive trading floors.”

April Day, head of equities at AFME, said trading remained one of the areas within financial services where staff faced “significant mental issues,” with excessively long hours a major factor in “generating and perpetuating this problem.”

She warned European trading risked lagging behind its global peers in terms of diversity and inclusion unless long hours were “tackled by an industry-wide approach.”

Galina Dimitrova, director of capital markets at the IA, said she had heard “many deeply moving stories of traders’ mental health and personal life being impacted by their working hours.”

While she acknowledged shortening trading hours was “no silver bullet” to these issues, Dimitrova said enabling a better work-life balance “lead to a step change” in the industry.

Sam Smith, CEO of brokerage finnCap Group, said it was an “encouraging” proposal.

“As a financier, business leader, and a mother, I very much welcome developments which seek to modernize the City’s culture and make workplaces more flexible,” she said.

However, Michael Hewson, chief market analyst at spread better CMC Markets, said the changes might impact domestic stockbrokers, in terms of having “the same amount of admin work squashed into a shorter working day.”

A spokesperson for the London Stock Exchange said it would consider the proposal “in a formal consultation.”

Electric cars may be powering ahead, but it will be a long way before they go mainstream

Electric mobility may be growing at a rapid pace around the world, but it could be some time before e-cars go mainstream. Out of more than 5.1 million electric cars on the roads globally, nearly two million electric cars were sold in China, Europe and the U.S. last year. The International Energy Agency is aiming to increase the share of electric vehicles globally to 30% by 2030. Chinese automakers Beijing Electric Vehicle and BYD, U.S. electric carmaker Tesla and Japan’s Nissan were the top producers. Together, they manufactured approximately 560,000 of the world’s fully electric cars. Still, this number accounts for less than 1% of the one billion vehicles being driven today, according to statistics by BloombergNEF for the 2019 Electric Vehicle Outlook.

Doling out incentives

As greater importance is placed on reducing carbon emissions, more countries are providing incentives to build integrated infrastructure, and to encourage drivers to switch to electric vehicles. Norway offers tax exemptions for electric car buyers — and 46% of automobiles in the country are electric. Shenzhen in China is one of the few cities equipped with a fleet of fully electric buses. Others like the U.S. and India have set targets to aid their countries to stay on track toward a carbon emission-free vehicle industry. “In countries around the world, where there is an over-arching commitment towards the environment, the city has been more than willing to provide the charging infrastructure,” Subodh Mhaisalkar, executive director for the Energy Research Institute at the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, told CNBC. It’s not just cars and buses becoming electric vehicles. Other modes of electric transportation, such as motorcycles, ships, and tuk-tuks — or Thai rickshaws, are also popping up. However, we might still be a long way from reducing our carbon footprint, especially since 38% of the world’s electricity still comes from burning coal. With more electric vehicles and charging stations being built, demand for electricity will also increase. According to projections by BloombergNEF, electric vehicles will cause global electricity consumption to rise 6.8% by 2040.

Challenges for electric carmakers

That’s not the only dilemma in the industry. Harley-Davidson joins a growing list of companies struggling to find a foothold. British appliance maker Dyson, known for household products like vacuum cleaners and bladeless fans, called off its electric car project in October. Days later, Harley-Davidson halted production of its fully electric motorcycle, known as the LiveWire. The decision came after a problem with its charging mechanism was discovered, barely a year after the motorcycle’s debut. Still, financial and technological difficulties might make it difficult for these traditional companies to make their forays into the electric industry.

Apple will give $2.5 billion to address the affordable housing crisis in Silicon Valley

Apple will give $2.5 billion to address the affordable housing crisis in Silicon Valley

Apple said Monday it will contribute $2.5 billion to try and alleviate California’s housing crisis, raising the bar for tech companies to commit to the communities in which they reside.

“Before the world knew the name Silicon Valley, and long before we carried technology in our pockets, Apple called this region home, and we feel a profound civic responsibility to ensure it remains a vibrant place where people can live, have a family and contribute to the community,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO in a blog post Monday. “Affordable housing means stability and dignity, opportunity and pride. When these things fall out of reach for too many, we know the course we are on is unsustainable, and Apple is committed to being part of the solution.”

The announcement comes as Silicon Valley communities put more pressure on tech companies who have rapidly expanded in the Bay Area and contributed to the displacement of local residents who can’t afford skyrocketing housing prices. The announcement follows housing commitments from other tech giants like Google, which announced in July it would be giving $1 billion for affordable housing in the Bay Area. Facebook made a similar $1 billion pledge in October.

For Apple, which has been notoriously non-committal to its surrounding community in Cupertino, California, this represents a large and surprising sum. Apple has long been the largest employer in Silicon Valley and it opened its large, brand new headquarters, Apple Park, in Cupertino in 2017. Now, Google is developing an 80-acre campus down the road in San Jose.

Retirement is a long way off. That gives you plenty of time to get it right … or wrong

Many people don’t worry about retirement until a looming number acts as a lightbulb. Mays, now 48, and her husband realized they would have very little for retirement aside from some contributions he had been making in his school retirement fund. Mays and her husband then got serious about retirement savings, committing to increasing contributions every quarter until they reached a max-out level. The average 20-something had $11,800 in a 401(k) in the first quarter of 2019, according to Fidelity

Retirement is a long way off. That gives you plenty of time to get it right ... or wrong

Many people don’t worry about retirement until a looming number acts as a lightbulb. In 2017, Wendy Mays was in her mid-40s and at the tail end of adopting several young children. “I was very scared,” said Mays, a former criminal defense attorney in San Diego who has a podcast on financial independence for families. Mays, now 48, and her husband realized they would have very little for retirement aside from some contributions he had been making in his school retirement fund. “We were still behind,” Mays said. They thought it would be impossible to save more because they started with a scarcity mindset. “We were already living paycheck to paycheck,” Mays said. But they had to make changes. “We questioned every expense,” Mays said, after going through recent bank statements. Discretionary spending — “If you want something, you buy it,” Mays said — was particularly ready for trimming. “We drastically reduced our grocery and going out spending,” she said. Mays and her husband then got serious about retirement savings, committing to increasing contributions every quarter until they reached a max-out level. “Right now we are at 50%,” she said. “The tax benefit has been huge for us. So many regrets,” Mays added. “But we can’t undo our mistakes — only do better now that we know better.” If you’re not winning at 401(k) investing, don’t feel bad. You are not alone. The average 20-something had $11,800 in a 401(k) in the first quarter of 2019, according to Fidelity, the country’s largest retirement plan provider. For people in their 30s, the balance jumped to $42,400. People have a hard time visualizing the future, said Chad Parks, founder and CEO of the retirement plan provider Ubiquity Retirement and Savings in San Francisco, because we are not programmed for long-term thinking. “We felt we always had time, and suddenly I was 46,” Mays said. “I didn’t have time.”

You think you don’t have the money

Or you think it’s too complicated. Whatever the reason, John J. Vento, a certified financial planner, says not putting money in your 401(k) is the most significant mistake. Retirement plans “represent a significant percentage of most retirees’ income,” said the president of the John J. Vento CPA firm in New York. “If you are not contributing, chances are you will not be able to maintain your standard of living.” Thinking “I don’t have it, I can’t afford it” was the biggest roadblock, said Mays. To get over it, scrutinize your spending and choose a small monthly amount. “Even if it’s $100 a month,” Mays said. “Then increase it to $200.” Since the money is taken out pretax, your paycheck will be smaller by less than that amount. If the lineup of investment choices is overwhelming and you don’t feel you know enough to make a smart decision, consider a target-date fund.You just need to make one decision: when you think you might retire. Choose the fund whose name ends in that year.

You’re saving 3%

One reason for the low average balance in many 401(k) accounts: People aren’t deferring enough from their paychecks into their workplace retirement accounts. The average rate in 2018 was 6.9%, the same as in 2017, according to a recent report from Vanguard, the investment firm. Say your company enrolled you in the plan at a specific level — often 3% — and you didn’t increase it. That level is far too low.

“Definitely 3% is not going to get you enough savings over your lifetime,” said Parks. “That has been calculated many times.” You want to save at least 10%, so turn up the contribution level. You can do it gradually, a little at a time, to soften the blow. Your goal: 15% is far better than 10%, according to Parks. Super savers of course save a lot more, but for now, make it a goal to increase by 1% or 2%. When you see that it doesn’t make that big a difference in your take-home pay, increase it again in a few months.

You’re below or just at the match

If you are lucky enough to have an employer that matches 401(k) contributions, you could be boosting your annual salary by an extra 3% to 6%. Not putting in enough to get that match is the same as turning down a raise, Vento said. If you contribute more than the minimum because you want to get that match — usually at 6% — you’re definitely getting closer. But that is still inadequate, said Parks. Saving to the match often makes people think they’ll be OK since they’ve basically doubled their contribution. “If you save at least double, if not triple, what the company puts in, then you’re going to be fine,” Parks said.

What almost no one knows about emergency savings

You’re thinking of taking a loan

You want to go on vacation. You need to pay some bills. You just want a loan — from your own 401(k). It’s not entirely bad. The interest rate on this loan is likely to be far less than it would be on other loans, and when you pay back the interest, it goes straight into your 401(k) account. It’s often possible, but a 401(k) isn’t meant to be short-term money. If you lose your employment for any reason, you’ll have a far shorter time to pay it back

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act gives workers more time to repay, but you will still have to come up with the funds by the due date of your income tax return (including extensions). Otherwise, it is considered an early distribution. You’ll be slapped with additional income tax and penalties: a double or triple whammy. “Taking loans should only be a last resort,” Parks said.

You left a job and took the money out
