Glamour editor-in-chief would give her younger self this piece of money advice

Glamour editor-in-chief Samantha Barry isn’t bashful when it comes to talking about money. She feels strongly about the importance of being financially literate and highly recommends others educate themselves for the purpose of bettering their financial futures.

“My advice for my 20-year-old self is to be more financially literate at a younger age,” says Barry, who’s a member of CNBC’s Financial Wellness Advisory Council.

“I definitely spent a lot of my early twenties with my head in the sand like, ‘I don’t need to worry about money’ or ‘I don’t need to think about it that much,'” Barry says. “It wasn’t until I started thinking about things like saving, investing and how much money was going in and out of my account that I took my head out of the sand and started setting real goals.”

As the head of a women’s brand, Barry says she is especially concerned with the financial well-being of women.

“The sooner that we talk to younger women and girls about their financial literacy the better,” Barry says. “Knowing your worth, knowing what you are spending, knowing what you are investing, knowing your credit rating. That is so personal to us at Glamour, and it’s so important for women.”

Research backs up Barry. According to a survey from the Finra Foundation, more than half of Americans were unable to pass a basic financial literacy exam. When asked five questions covering aspects of economics and personal finance, 63% were unable to answer more than three correctly.

In the past 18 months since signing on as editor-in-chief, Barry’s team has made it a priority to start a dialogue surrounding money. When having conversations surrounding a sensitive topic like money, Barry says honesty and speaking to people from differing backgrounds is key.

“I, like most people, have had a complicated relationship with money at times,” Barry says. “I have worked as a freelancer, worked paycheck to paycheck, and I have even taken a job I much preferred over the higher paid one.

“It can sometimes feel very alienating if a person is coming in to tell you about money that has has only experienced plain sailing with all of the money conversations in their entire life.”

As US-China relations sour, Taiwan’s value as a ‘chess piece’ may rise

Taiwan has always been a “chess piece” that Washington can play with in U.S.-China relations, said Zhiqun Zhu, a professor of political science and international relations at Bucknell University. “Taiwan’s value to the U.S. will only increase as tensions between the U.S. and China escalate,” Zhu told CNBC.

As US-China relations sour, Taiwan's value as a 'chess piece' may rise

As the United States and China remain deadlocked in a deepening dispute over trade and technology, some experts say Taiwan’s value as a bargaining chip has increased. The self-governed island — which Beijing deems to be a renegade Chinese province — is one of many flashpoints in the rivalry between the world’s two superpowers. Taiwan has always been a “chess piece” that Washington can play with in U.S.-China relations, said Zhiqun Zhu, a professor of political science and international relations at Bucknell University. “Taiwan’s value to the U.S. will only increase as tensions between the U.S. and China escalate,” Zhu told CNBC. Under the Chinese Communist Party’s “One China” policy, the self-ruled island is part of mainland China. Chinese President Xi Jinping has said before that China “must be and will be” reunified with Taiwan — by force if necessary. However, recent military and diplomatic actions from Washington have been seen by Beijing as U.S. support for Taiwan’s independence movement. At the Shangri-la dialogue in Singapore last weekend, Chinese Lieutenant General Shao Yuanming said Washington’s support for Taipei has sent “terribly wrong signals to Taiwan’s independence forces, which could undermine regional peace and stability. ” “If anyone wants to separate Taiwan from the country, the Chinese military will resolutely defend the unity of our motherland at all costs,” Shao added.

‘Upgrade’ in US-Taiwan relations

The U.S. using Taiwan as a card is a new factor in the dynamic of the trilateral relationship that “really did not exist” before President Donald Trump came into power, said Bonnie Glaser, senior advisor for Asia at Washington-based think tank Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS). “Trump is a transactional president and he often seems to be willing to put anything on the table,” she told CNBC. On the military front, the Trump administration has ramped up arms sales to Taipei over the years, invoking the ire of Beijing. Washington is reportedly preparing a sale of more than $2 billion worth of tanks and weapons to Taiwan. Diplomatic issues have also come to the fore. In May, high-level security officials from the U.S. and Taiwan met for the first time in nearly four decades, drawing an angry response from Beijing. Chinese Foreign Minister Lu Kang said Beijing is “strongly dissatisfied” with and “resolutely opposed” to any official meetings between the U.S. and Taiwan. “I believe we’re inching closer & closer to Beijing’s redline on US-Taiwan senior official mtgs–those that are publicized at least,” Derek Grossman, a senior defense analyst at California-based think tank RAND Corporation, said on Twitter after the U.S.-Taiwan meeting.

Grossman told CNBC on email that his understanding is that such meetings “have been ongoing for some time in private.” “My hunch is that it was publicized this time via intentional leak from one or both sides to signal to China that the upgrade in U.S.-Taiwan relations is here to stay,” he added.

Taiwan’s next leader is key

Taiwan is set to have its presidential elections in January 2020 — and experts said the polls would likely determine the direction of cross-strait ties. Grossman said that if the incumbent Taiwanese president Tsai Ing-Wen is re-elected, which is “likely,” cross-strait tensions are likely to escalate further from 2020 to 2024. Glaser from CSIS echoed that sentiment, adding that if a candidate from the independence-leaning Democratic Progressive Party was elected, China would ratchet up military, diplomatic and economic pressure. “I think the Chinese would be worried that there’s always this potential for things to go in a very negative direction because the combination of Trump being president and the possibility that Tsai gets re-elected … could really embolden Tsai to move toward the direction of independence,” she added.

China could miscalculate and think the United States would get involved in a conflict, and that would really be a very dangerous situation. Bonnie Glaser senior advisor for Asia at the Center for Strategic and International Studies

According to Grossman, the best hope for keeping tensions under wraps would be if a candidate from the opposition Kuomintang (KMT) party wins the next Taiwan presidential race and recognizes the “One China” policy. That said, Grossman added, public opinion polling in Taiwan has shown that voters will not likely support the opposition KMT in doing so. “The Taiwanese have been observing how China’s ‘One Country, Two Systems’ approach has worked out in Hong Kong, and it isn’t too inspiring,” Grossman added. A public opinion survey conducted by the Taiwan’s Mainland Affairs Council in May also found that 83.6% of Taiwan opposes Xi’s “one country, two systems” policy.

A ‘small’ risk of escalation

Rapper and ‘The Talk’ co-host Eve’s No. 1 piece of advice for women in male-dominated jobs

Missy [Elliott] used to pull me to the side a lot and just ask me, ‘How you doing? Eve says that even though she had support at her record label, she often faced resistance when presenting new ideas. “I had to fight for it because I don’t think it had really been done at that time,” she explains. “I don’t think, especially two females from different genres, I should say, had done anything at that time.” Three, because I was a girl and it was like, ‘Yea, that’s cute, but I don’t think so.'”

Rapper and 'The Talk' co-host Eve's No. 1 piece of advice for women in male-dominated jobs

Eve says she was fortunate, when starting her career in the late 1990s as the only female rapper signed to record label Ruff Ryders, to be part of an era in hip hop when there were other women she could turn to for advice and support. “You know, Queen Latifah used to pull me to the side a lot. Missy [Elliott] used to pull me to the side a lot and just ask me, ‘How you doing? You OK?'”

“I had some really great women when I was coming up,” she says. “I hung out with a lot of the girls at that time and I think we all helped each other. And that was so nice. I feel lucky for that.”

Eve says that even though she had support at her record label, she often faced resistance when presenting new ideas. She recalls how she had to fight for her 2001 hit song with Gwen Stefani, “Blow Your Mind.”

“I had to fight for it because I don’t think it had really been done at that time,” she explains. “I don’t think, especially two females from different genres, I should say, had done anything at that time.”

“One hundred percent, being a woman had a lot to do with the second guessing. One, because I was in a male-dominated business. Two, because a dude didn’t come up with the idea. Three, because I was a girl and it was like, ‘Yea, that’s cute, but I don’t think so.'”

America's energy capital became a battleground over a Russian pipeline to Germany this week

“It was not pursued by the state. It was pursued by companies, and it had economic advantages because that’s what companies like,” she said.

U.S. Deputy Energy Secretary Dan Brouillette pushed back on that claim. The Russian partner Gazprom is state-controlled and initiated the project on behalf of Moscow, he said.

“This is not purely a private project for the development of energy,” he said. “And so what are the motives for doing that? If it’s a government driven exercise, you have to look at… geopolitics and the particular governments involved.”

Russia’s motives for building Nord Stream 2 and another pipeline called Turkstream are clear, according to Amos Hochstein, a former special envoy for international energy under President Barack Obama who now sits on the supervisory board for Ukrainian gas company Naftogaz. Moscow wants to circumvent the Ukrainian pipeline system, depriving its regional rival of valuable transit fees and making it easier for the Kremlin to pressure its neighbors.

“If you have a piece of infrastructure that works, you rarely see somebody saying, ‘Hey, it works. Let’s go and finance billions of dollars worth of a different piece of infrastructure to accomplish a very similar goal, which is to get a molecule of gas from Russia into Europe,'” Hochstein said during a separate panel on Wednesday.

“So that is what’s on the table at the moment, a non-commercial project that serves a political goal.”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shares the best piece of advice she got from Bernie Sanders

In a new interview, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tells Rolling Stone that while she and Bernie Sanders haven’t had a beer since she arrived on Capital Hill, she did have the opportunity to seek his input during her campaign.

She says his advice to her was “functional” and simple: “You spend a lot of time in your committee, so it’s really important to pick a subject that you’re passionate about.”

Ocasio-Cortez recently confirmed she would be joining the House Financial Services Committee, which oversees the financial services industry. California rep Maxine Waters took over as chair of the committee, which will now include other freshman Democrats like Massachusetts rep Ayanna Pressley, Michigan rep Rashida Tlaib and California rep Katie Porter.

“That was in my top three picks. It’s a pretty powerful committee in terms of what it can regulate. I’m excited about it,” Ocasio-Cortez said in the interview.

She has previously said that the House Financial Services Committee has historically been a “money committee” to help members of Congress fundraise for their re-election bids. But she promised that new Democratic members will shift the committee’s function. “I cannot stress how important this moment is,” she tweeted in January. “Dems are putting members who rejected corporate campaign money on a committee overseeing Wall St.”

It’s not the first time that Sanders has given the freshman congresswoman, who worked on his 2016 presidential campaign, advice. In July 2018, after Ocasio-Cortez ousted 10-year incumbent Joe Crowley in the Democratic primary, Sanders said on CBS’ Face the Nation that she should “keep doing what she has done.”

“She ran an extraordinary campaign,” Sanders said on the program. “And the reason that she won is she ran on ideas that were relevant to the working people in her district. She put together a strong grass roots campaign and she worked her tail off.”

The article itself sang the praises of Chinese efforts on poverty reduction and gender equality, and it applauded the Belt and Road Initiative — an investment campaign introduced by China as a way to create a vast global infrastructure network inextricably tied to the country.

The piece bearing Shipley’s byline was the most-read article on the paper’s website on Wednesday, according to The Guardian. However, the former prime minister said the story was artificially constructed from an interview she did with a different Chinese state-run newspaper last year, according to comments reported by CNN.

Betting on the Super Bowl? The IRS will want a piece of your winnings

Here’s how to feed a Super Bowl party for less than $45 9:58 AM ET Fri, 1 Feb 2019 | 02:35

Generally speaking, if you win more than $5,000 and the amount is 300 times the original bet, the payor is required to withhold 24 percent of your winnings for federal taxes. There could be instances, however, that trigger withholding when your win is under that threshold.

And, your final tax bill could be higher or lower than the amount withheld, depending on your other income and a variety of other factors. And even if no tax is withheld, you’re not off the hook for claiming the income on your tax return.

One way to reduce what you owe on your winnings is to write off your gambling losses. Of course, you’d need to be able to back up your claims with documentation.

“People don’t often think about keeping track of their losses,” Luscombe said. “They just lose, walk away, and then they finally win and have no records to offset it with losses.”

Additionally, you can only take a deduction for any gambling losses if you itemize your deductions on your tax return. The majority of taxpayers are not itemizers because they’re financially better off with the standard deduction, which was nearly doubled under new tax law that took effect in 2018.

And, even if you do itemize, you cannot claim losses in excess of your actual winnings, said Andrew Whalen, CEO of Whalen Financial in Las Vegas.

And, he said, if you win $10,000 or more, the casino likely will require you to fill out a government form intended to prevent anti-money laundering.

Then there’s a W-2G that the casino might or might not send you, depending on how much you win. For sports betting — which is treated differently, from a tax standpoint, than some other forms of gambling — you should receive one if you win at least $600 and, again, at least 300 times the original bet.
