British police to investigate leak of ambassador's memos that led to his resignation

Kim Darroch, the United Kingdom’s ambassador to the United States, at the Library of Congress in Washington DC.

British police on Friday said they had opened an investigation into a leak of confidential memos that led to the resignation of the British ambassador to Washington.

Kim Darroch quit on Wednesday after Donald Trump called him “stupid” and “wacky” following the publication of the confidential memos by a newspaper. In them, Darroch called Trump’s administration inept.

London’s Metropolitan Police said its counter-terrorism command, which takes national responsibility for investigating allegations of criminal breaches of the Official Secrets Act, was leading the investigation.

“Given the widely reported consequences of that leak I am satisfied that there has been damage caused to UK international relations, and there would be clear public interest in bringing the person or people responsible to justice,” Met Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said in a statement.

“I would say to the person or people who did this, the impact of what you have done is obvious. However, you are now also responsible for diverting busy detectives from undertaking their core mission. You can stop this now. Turn yourself in at the earliest opportunity, explain yourself and face the consequences.”

Basu added a warning to journalists and publishers that they could be in breach of the law if they published further details from the memos.

“The publication of leaked communications, knowing the damage they have caused or are likely to cause, may also be a criminal matter,” he said.

“I would advise all owners, editors and publishers of social and mainstream media not to publish leaked government documents that may already be in their possession, or which may be offered to them, and to turn them over to the police or give them back to their rightful owner, Her Majesty’s Government.”

Warren Buffett to MBA students: This is what ‘sets apart a big winner from the rest of the pack’

Warren Buffett to MBA students: This is what 'sets apart a big winner from the rest of the pack'

Philanthropist Warren Buffett is joined onstage by 24 other philanthropist and influential business people featured on the Forbes list of 100 Greatest Business Minds during the Forbes Media Centennial Celebration at Pier 60 on September 19, 2017

At 88, Warren Buffett has a lot of wisdom — and sharing them with students is one of the many wonderful things he’s known for. One lesson the Berkshire Hathaway CEO loves to teach is the importance of developing good personal qualities at young age. Establishing good habits — even the little ones, like saying “please” and “thank you” — is a major key to success, he told Yahoo Finance’s editor-in-chief last year.

A high IQ won’t make you stand out

Buffett elaborated on the topic in a talk to MBA students from the University of Florida in 1998. The legendary investor started his speech with a little game: “Think for a moment that I granted you a right — you can buy 10% of one of your classmate’s earnings for the rest of their lifetime.” The decision should be based on merit, Buffett advised, so it’d be unwise to pick the person with the highest IQ, the richest parents or the most energy. “There’s nothing wrong with getting the highest grades in the class, but that isn’t going to be the quality that sets apart a big winner from the rest of the pack,” said Buffett. He continued: “You’d probably pick the person who has leadership qualities, who is able to get others to carry out their interests. That would be the person who is generous, honest and gave credit to other people for their own ideas.” And here comes the hooker: In addition to this person, Buffett told the students they had to sell short another one of their classmates and pay 10% of what they do. “You wouldn’t pick the person with the lowest IQ,” he said. “You’d think about the person who turned you off, the person who is egotistical, who is greedy, who cuts corners, who is slightly dishonest.” If you see any of those qualities in yourself, you can get rid of them. “It’s simply a question of which you decide,” he said.

There’s nothing wrong with getting the highest grades in the class, but that isn’t going to be the quality that sets apart a big winner from the rest of the pack. Warren Buffett CEO, Berkshire Hathaway

“If you write the good qualities down and make them habitual, you will be the one you want to buy 10% of when you’re all through, ” said Buffett. “The beauty of this is that you already own 100% of yourself, and you’re stuck with it. So you might as well be that person, that somebody else.” Buffett said he sees people his age — or even 20 years younger — with “self-destructive behavior patterns,” and they’re entrapped by them. Essentially, integrity — honesty, virtue and morality — can make or break you in the professional world. And if you choose not to make it a priority, you risk getting stuck with a reputation for deceit.

What Buffett looks for in a good hire

All of this goes back to what Buffett himself looks for when deciding who to hire or invest in. His decision isn’t based on business metrics, test scores or degrees. Instead, it’s all about one’s personal qualities. “There was a guy, Pete Kiewit in Omaha, who used to say he looked for three things in hiring people: Integrity, intelligence and energy,” Buffett said. “If they didn’t have the first, the other two would kill them, because if they don’t have integrity, you want them dumb and lazy.” It makes sense — if you can’t trust someone to act with integrity in a situation that demands it, then should they really be allowed anywhere near you or your brand? The answers seems like a resounding “no,” but it also raises another, more difficult question: How do you know who to trust? At Berkshire Hathaway’s annual meeting in 2007, an attendee asked Buffett that exact question. The billionaire dipped into his store of wisdom and offered this sage perspective: “People give themselves away fairly often. When someone comes to me with a business, the very things they talk about, what they regard as important — there are a lot of clues that come as to subsequent behavior.”

Don’t be someone who turns people off

Self-made millionaire: A simple chart changed the way I think about money

Before wealth manager and author David Bach made his first million, he was a brand new financial advisor in his early twenties, he tells CNBC Make It: “We had someone come and talk to our training class, and as he walked out the door, he handed us this chart.”

Ultimately, the chart “changed my life,” Bach says.

The chart shows two different scenarios:

You start investing at 19 and contribute $2,000 to your account every year until you reach 27. From 27 to 65, you contribute $0. From 19 to 26, you don’t invest anything. You start investing at 27 and contribute $2,000 to your account every year until you turn 65.

In the first scenario, you’re only saving and investing for eight years; in the second, you’re saving and investing for 39 years. Still, the person who starts at age 19 would end up with more money in their portfolio in the long run.

Assuming a 10% rate of return, the first person would have $1.02 million by 65, while the second person would have $805,185, a difference of more than $200,000.

As the chart shows, the sooner you can start putting your money to work, the more you’ll benefit from compound interest and the less you’ll have to save to reach your retirement goals.

Reservations no longer needed to visit Star Wars Galaxy's Edge, but that doesn't mean you'll get in

The planet of Batuu is now open to all Disneyland guests, but that doesn’t mean visiting it is going to be easy.

The month-long reservation period, which restricted crowd sizes and how long guests could wander around the new land, has come to an end. Starting Monday, anyone who has purchased a ticket to Disney’s California-based theme park will be eligible to enter Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge.

However, that doesn’t mean everyone will get in.

Disney has made it clear that Batuu will be subject to capacity limits and, if the land becomes overcrowded, fans will not be guaranteed entrance to the area or to its rides.

While reservations to get into the land aren’t required, if you want to step foot in Oga’s Cantina or Savi’s workshop, you’ll need to enter a virtual queue. Starting at 7 a.m. PT every morning, Disney will open the online reservation system for these experiences.

Reservations can be made through the Disneyland app or through the park’s website and a deposit will be required.

For Oga’s, a fee of $10 per person must be placed when you book your reservation. However, Disney will only charge you if you do not check in for your time slot. Parkgoers will have 45 minutes in the Cantina and at least one person in the group must be over age 14.

Student loan scams are on the rise. Don't fall for them

First, you receive a call about your student loans.

The person on the other end offers to lower your monthly payments or make your debt disappear altogether, potentially for a fee. Sounds great, right?

You go through the steps, sharing your federal student loan ID and other sensitive information along the way.

No worrisome notices arrive at your door because the person, using your ID, changed your billing address.

Months pass until you discover your loans have gone unpaid and slipped into default, and that you’ve fallen prey to one of the growing number of student loan scams.

For scammers, rising student loan debt is an opportunity. Americans are now more burdened by education loans than they are by credit card or auto debt. The average person leaves school $30,000 in the hole, while nearly 20% percent owe more than $100,000.

This new breed of fraudsters commonly promise student debt forgiveness and lower payments. They often demand upfront fees of thousands of dollars, which is illegal, for this “service.” So far, these charges have cost student loan borrowers more than $95 million, according to the Federal Trade Commission. The FTC has launched “Operation Game of Loans,” an effort to crack down on these companies around the country.

The FTC recently reached an $11 million settlement with a man who ran a California-based student loan debt relief scheme that preyed on borrowers hoping for reduced monthly payments or loan forgiveness. The FTC says the consumers often did not receive any debt relief and lost hundreds of dollars.

“When there’s a lot of debt, there will be people who try to take advantage of people who have that debt and are overwhelmed by it,” said Brianna McGurran, a student loan expert for personal finance website NerdWallet.

Huawei asks Verizon to pay more than $1 billion for over 230 patents: Source

In this photo illustration, the Huawei logo and Chinese flag is seen displayed on an Android mobile phone.

Huawei Technologies has told Verizon Communications that the U.S. carrier should pay licensing fees for more than 230 of the Chinese telecoms equipment maker’s patents and in aggregate is seeking more than $1 billion, a person briefed on the matter said on Wednesday.

Verizon should pay to “solve the patent licensing issue,” a Huawei intellectual property licensing executive wrote in February, The Wall Street Journal reported earlier. The patents cover network equipment for more than 20 of the company’s vendors including major U.S. tech firms but those vendors would indemnify Verizon, the person said. Some of those firms have been approached directly by Huawei, the person said.

The patents in question range from core network equipment, wireline infrastructure to internet-of-things technology, the Journal reported. The licensing fees for the more than 230 patents sought is more than $1 billion, the person said.

Huawei has been battling the U.S. government for more than a year. National security experts worry that “back doors” in routers, switches and other Huawei equipment could allow China to spy on U.S. communications. Huawei has denied that it would help China spy.

Companies involved, including Verizon have notified the U.S. government and the dispute comes amid a growing feud between China and the United States. The licensing fee demand may be more about the geopolitical battle between China and the United States rather than a demand for patent fees.

Huawei and Verizon representatives met in New York last week to discuss some of the patents at issue and whether Verizon is using equipment from other companies that could infringe on Huawei patents.

Verizon spokesman Rich Young declined to comment “regarding this specific issue because it’s a potential legal matter.”

However, Young said, “These issues are larger than just Verizon. Given the broader geopolitical context, any issue involving Huawei has implications for our entire industry and also raise national and international concerns.”

Huawei and U.S. wireless carriers T-Mobile US and AT&T did not respond to Reuters’ requests for comment. Sprint declined to comment.

The United States last month put Huawei on a blacklist that barred it from doing business with U.S. companies on security grounds without government approval, prompting some global tech firms to cut ties with the world’s largest telecoms equipment maker.

Washington is also seeking the extradition of Huawei Chief Financial Executive Meng Wanzhou from Canada after her arrest in Vancouver last December on a U.S. warrant.

China has since upped the pressure on Canada, halting Canadian canola imports and in May suspended the permits of two major pork producers.

Forever 21 is exploring restructuring options to shore up its liquidity as the fast-fashion giant struggles with its business, a person familiar with the situation said on Monday.

The company is in talks with private equity firm Apollo Global Management about raising debtor-in-possession funds to provide financing should it file for bankruptcy, the person said. The person cautioned that no decisions have yet been made.

The talks come as the apparel industry continues to struggle amid sweeping changes, including the shift of more purchases online. Many of the most troubled retailers, like Forever 21, are located in malls, where fewer shoppers are spending their money. As sales decline, the companies are still weighed down by large, expensive store bases even as the retailers need to invest in technology to fend off competition from new brands born online, like Lulus.

Goldman Sachs HR exec: Showing 'authentic' emotion in your interview can help you land the job

Financial services companies have a reputation for being competitive, often challenging work environments. But Goldman Sachs wants candidates who are in touch with the emotions.

Head of Human Capital Management Dane Holmes says that showing genuine emotion and honesty in your interview with the bank can actually improve your chances of being hired. “When we are going to put you in a demanding, high-expectation job, it’s better the more that we understand you, what motivates you, what drives you,” Holmes tells CNBC Make It.

He says candidates have even cried when they were talking about struggles they overcame and experiences that touched them personally. Rather than discounting them for being emotional, he says he and other Goldman recruiters developed a deeper respect for those willing to discuss deeply personal experiences.

Holmes says being upfront about your shortcomings as well as your successes gives your interviewer a wider sense of who you are. Admitting how you bounced back from failure shows your grit and ability to learn from your mistakes.

“Failure is a big part of getting to understand how someone operates and what motivates them,” Holmes says. “Everybody fails. Everybody has their setback — acknowledge it.”

Goldman Sachs’ hiring process is a rigorous and extensive evaluation of a candidate’s entire resume, not just their grades or work experience. The interview process examines a candidate’s behavioral skills, judgment and character in addition to their professional qualifications.

“The whole real point is, ‘Can you be an honest person? Can you be a transparent, authentic person?'” Holmes says.

Holmes says demonstrating your passion and work ethic to your interviewer will also go a long way to winning the job.

“As long as emotion is authentic and direct, and it’s not messing with your perspective or your decision-making, it’s generally a good thing,” says Holmes.

Trump is set to embark on a three-day state visit to the U.K. in June, days before British Prime Minister Theresa May is set to resign from her post.

According to American and British officials, Trump decided to raise the issue about Huawei after his aides had repeatedly failed to convince the U.K. government to restrict the involvement of the Chinese company, the newspaper said.

A person involved in planning the trip told the FT that Trump was ready to make his objections known both in public and in private: “The president is preparing to repeat the message that Chinese involvement in 5G could pose significant challenges for US-UK intelligence co-operation.”

The White House did not immediately respond to an emailed request for comment sent outside regular office hours.
