Here's what we know about new UK PM Boris Johnson and what he means for Brexit

Boris Johnson, the U.K.’s next prime minister, is a charismatic and sometimes controversial figure that already divides his own party and the British public alike. Johnson was announced as the winner of the ruling Conservative Party’s leadership race on Tuesday, winning 92,153 of the party membership’s vote, making him both leader of the party, and the U.K. Here’s a brief summary of the colorful background of the U.K.’s new leader.

Who is ‘Boris’?

Johnson — full name Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson (and widely known just as “Boris” in the British media and public) — rose to prominence in British public life when he was mayor of London from 2008 to 2016, although he had been a member of parliament (MP) for the Conservative Party since 2001 after a checkered career in journalism. Johnson himself was born in New York and had both American and British citizenship before renouncing the former in 2017. It’s widely reported that Johnson said as a child that his ambition was to be “world king.” He has a colorful family history with links to European and British aristocracy and is descended from King George II. Johnson studied at the prestigious Eton College private school and then Oxford University and was a journalist before entering politics. His career in the media was mired in controversy when he was sacked for fabricating a quote. He later went to work as a journalist in Brussels where he became infamous for his euroskeptic reporting on the European Commission.

Later becoming a politician and London mayor, he then took a pro-Brexit stance ahead of the 2016 U.K. referendum on EU membership. It is widely speculated that Johnson was undecided about which side to support before declaring that he was supporting the ‘Leave ” campaign. Following former Prime Minister David Cameron’s resignation after the referendum result in June 2016, Johnson was appointed as foreign minister in Theresa May’s government. He resigned from that position in 2018, however, in protest at May’s approach to Brexit. Some ministers have already said they would resign is Johnson became prime minister, including Finance Minister Philip Hammond. Johnson is likely to replace the current top team of ministers.

Controversies and gaffes

Johnson is no stranger to a public gaffe, in fact, his rise to prominence (and popularity among right-leaning Conservatives) might in no small part be attributed to his attention-grabbing, unfiltered comments on a wide variety of topics that have often got him into trouble. When working back in London as a journalist in 2002, Johnson prompted controversy writing an article about a prime ministerial trip to the Democratic Republic of Congo in which he used racist terms. He recently apologized for those remarks but has made other controversial comments over the years, cementing his public persona as somewhat eccentric, gaffe-prone, and buffoonish (a persona only accentuated by Johnson’s unruly mop of blonde hair) — although many have questioned how much of the buffooning is real, and who is the real Boris. Critics say Johnson is unsuitable for high office because of his previous comments; he was accused of Islamophobia after saying Muslim women wearing burkas looked “like letter boxes.” He once said Hillary Clinton looked like a “sadistic nurse in a mental hospital” and dismissed Donald Trump before he became president in 2016. When Trump said in 2015 that some parts of London had become so radicalized that police fear for their lives, Johnson retorted that “the only reason I wouldn’t visit some parts of New York is the real risk of meeting Donald Trump.” But Johnson has since become closer to Trump, and the U.S. president said he would do a “great job” as prime minister.

There have been many moments of levity provided by Johnson who has been known to play the fool — the image of Johnson stuck dangling from a zip wire when promoting the London 2012 Olympics is one that is indelible in many Brits’ minds. Elsewhere, his over-exuberance on the sports field led to him flooring a 10-year-old Japanese boy in a game of street rugby in Tokyo, and bulldozing a former international German footballer in a friendly game of soccer.

What about the B-word?

There is undoubtedly one topic that is sure to give Johnson a headache as soon as he takes office and that’s Brexit, an issue that cost Johnson’s former boss, Theresa May, her job as prime minister following repeated parliamentary rejections of the Brexit deal she struck with the EU. Johnson has been one of the most vociferous supporters of leaving the EU, although many have questioned his motivation and belief in Brexit. One unpublished article he penned (before he declared support for leaving the EU) showed him arguing in favor of remaining in the bloc. The story prompted criticism that his support for Leave reflected personal ambition rather than the country’s interest. But attention is now on what the Brexiteer — who has criticized the U.K’.s approach from the sidelines since quitting government — will do with what has become a prolonged political mess with no obvious solution that can unite a polarized political establishment and public.

LinkedIn said on Tuesday that it’s finally migrating computing workloads from its own equipment to the Azure public cloud, entrusting its critical data with parent company Microsoft. The move shows that LinkedIn, which Microsoft acquired for $27 billion in 2016, finally sees Azure as reliable enough for its services. Microsoft has emerged as the clear No. 2 in cloud infrastructure, behind Amazon Web Services, and has been pulling more of its internal services over to Azure. AWS has also turned more to its own technology, decreasing its use of database software from Oracle.

In a blog post on Monday, Mohak Shroff, senior vice president of engineering at LinkedIn, said the shift will take place over multiple years. “The cloud holds the future for us and we are confident that Azure is the right platform to build on for years to come,” Shroff wrote. A LinkedIn spokesperson told CNBC that the move will be “cost-neutral” to Linkedin and will produce efficiencies over time.

WeWork will host a Wall Street analyst day in IPO push

Signage is seen at the entrance of the WeWork offices on Broad Street in New York.

The We Company, parent of shared office space manager WeWork, plans to host an analyst day for Wall Street banks on July 31, as the company steps up its preparations for an initial public offering (IPO), people familiar with the matter said.

WeWork’s decision to host the event at this stage is unusual, given that IPO hopefuls have typically hired underwriters by the time they invite analysts from Wall Street banks to educate them about their company’s business.

While WeWork filed for an IPO with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in December, it has yet to hire IPO underwriters, the sources said. WeWork wants to be in a position to potentially go public by the end of 2019, the sources added.

The hosting of the event at this early stage indicates that the New York-based start-up wants to leave nothing to chance after other high-profile IPOs struggled or were canceled this year, amid pushback from investors over the frothy valuations sought.

The sources asked not to be identified because the matter is confidential. A spokesman for WeWork declined to comment.

The IPO market has been challenging for some of this year’s biggest listings. Ride-hailing companies Uber and Lyft faced criticism from investors about their steep losses and the lack of commitment to a timetable to reach profitability.

Last week, Anheuser Busch InBev NV, the world’s largest brewer, shelved the initial public offering (IPO) of its Asian business after it could not muster enough investor support for the valuation it sought.

WeWork was recently valued at $47 billion in a private fundraising round, making it one of the most valuable private companies in the world.

However, the money-losing company has faced questions about the sustainability of its business model, which is based on short-term revenue agreements and long-term loan liabilities.

The losses at WeWork’s parent company narrowed slightly in the first quarter of 2019 to $264 million as revenue continues to double annually.

WeWork is looking to raise $3 billion to $4 billion in debt before it goes public, and has held discussions with representatives of Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan Chase to discuss the debt offering, Reuters reported earlier this month.

A substantial debt offering could allow it to pitch itself to potential investors in a planned IPO as having sufficient funding to see itself to profitability.

WeWork, which was co-founded in 2010 by CEO Adam Neumann, has helped pioneer “coworking,” or shared desk-space, with a focus on startups, entrepreneurs and freelancers.

In January, Japan’s SoftBank boosted its stake in WeWork by $2 billion in a deal that was billions of dollars below what the company had hoped to raise to fund growth and buy out existing shareholders.

Medallia soars more than 75% in IPO

Medallia surged more than 75% in its market debut on Friday, becoming the latest cloud software company to attract public market investors.

The San Francisco-based company, which sells software tools to help companies monitor customer satisfaction, was initially priced at $21 per share but broke the $35 per share mark soon after trading began. The company said in a SEC filing on July 8 that it expected shares to price between $16 and $18. The stock climbed as high as $39.56 before closing at $37.05, giving it a market valuation of more than $4.5 billion.

Medallia joined Zoom, Crowdstrike and PagerDuty as cloud software providers with strong opening days this year. All three saw at least a 50% jump, with Zoom posting the biggest gain of 72% when the videoconferencing company debuted in April.

Slack also saw a sharp rise on its first day of trading, but the chat app developer used a direct listing instead of the traditional IPO to enter the public market.

Medallia CEO Leslie Stretch, appearing on CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” said the company is an alternative to traditional customer survey vendors. The company has recently signed agreements with Salesforce and Adobe, Stretch said.

“It’s great to go to market with leaders like that,” Stretch said, shortly after trading began. “Both Adobe and Salesforce completely understand that the customer is at the center of every digital transformation, and we’re the center of that.”

Medalia’s competitors include SurveyMonkey, which went public last September, and Qualtrics, which SAP bought for $8 billion in November just ahead of the company’s IPO.

Revenue in the fiscal year that ended in January rose 20% to $313.6 million, Medallia said in a regulatory filing. Its net loss widened to $82.2 million from $70.36 million as sales and marketing costs jumped 26%.

Prior to the offering, Sequoia Capital owned 40% of the company, an unusually large stake for a venture firm at this stage. At Friday’s high, Sequoia stake was worth about $1.8 billion.

Trump's public attacks have 'no effect' on Fed policy, Rosengren says

Eric Rosengren, president and chief executive officer of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston at the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 8, 2018.

President Donald Trump’s constant berating of the Federal Reserve and its actions does not influence the central bank’s decisions on monetary policy, Boston Fed President Eric Rosengren said Friday.

“It has no effect on how I think about monetary policy,” Rosengren told CNBC’s Sara Eisen. “And people are entitled to opinions. If we hear interesting and important facts that we haven’t thought about, we take that into consideration. And unless it’s data driven, it doesn’t have much of an influence on how I think about what we should be doing.”

Trump has criticized the Fed keeping interest rates at levels he thinks are too high. Earlier this month, he said the current level of Fed rates was “unnecessary,” adding that if the central bank would lower rates, “we’d be like a rocket ship.”

On Friday, he tweeted: “….Fed: There is almost no inflation!”

He also said in a July 19 tweet that: “Because of the faulty thought process we have going for us at the Federal Reserve, we pay much higher interest rates than countries that are no match for us economically. In other words, our interest costs are much higher than other countries, when they should be lower. Correct!”

But Rosengren said the tweets are not the subject of conversation in Fed meetings, noting: “I can’t recall them being mentioned at all.”

The Fed raised rates four times in 2018, the last of which contributed to a massive correction in December. Since then, the Fed has pivoted and has not hiked rates at all in 2019. In fact, the Fed is largely expected to cut rates by ate least 25 basis points later this month.

According to the College Board’s 2018 Trends in College Pricing Report, from 1988 to 2018, sticker prices doubled private nonprofit four-year schools but tripled for in-state students at four-year public universities. During the 2018-2019 school year, published in‐state tuition and fees at public four‐year schools averaged $10,230.

But these costs can be significantly higher for out-of-state students. The College Board estimates that out-of-state tuition and fees at public four-year institutions rose by $620, from $25,670 during the 2017-2018 school year to $26,290 during the 2018-2019 school year.

The difference in cost for out-of-state and in-state students can be significant, including at some of the country’s most respected public institutions. At the University of Michigan’s Ann Arbor campus, estimated tuition and fees for the 2019-2020 school year is $15,558 for in-state freshmen and sophomores and $17,522 for in-state juniors and seniors. But for out-of-state students these costs are $51,200 for freshmen and sophomores and $54,794 for juniors and seniors.

The school also estimates that for all students, room and board is about $12,000 for a standard double room and that books and supplies costs a little over $1,000 per year.

Judge denies Jeffrey Epstein bail in child sex trafficking case, citing 'danger' to public

Courtroom sketch showing Jeffrey Epstein at his bail hearing in New York on July 15th, 2019.

A federal judge on Thursday denied bail to wealthy investor Jeffrey Epstein, citing the potential danger he poses to the public and the risk that Epstein will flee to avoid prosecution for child sex trafficking charges.

The decision by Judge Richard Berman means that the 66-year-old Epstein will remain in jail pending trial in the case, where he faces up to 45 years in prison if convicted.

“I doubt any bail package could overcome dangerousness …. to community,” Berman said during a hearing in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, agreeing with the recommendation by prosecutors to keep Epstein locked up.

Berman said that risk was “the heart of this decision” to deny the financier release on bond.

He noted that two women who claim they were abused by Epstein gave “compelling testimony” at a court hearing on Monday, where they had expressed “fear for their safety.”

The judge also called Epstein’s proposal for bail “irretrievably inadequate.”

Epstein, a former friend of Presidents Donald Trump and Bill Clinton, had asked Berman to release him on a bond of as high as $100 million or more.

Epstein had also suggested strict bail conditions, which could include requiring him to remain in his New York City mansion, round-the-clock security monitoring and an electronic tracking device.

But Berman said that prosecutors had established that Epstein could be dangerous by “clear and convincing evidence,” and had shown by a “preponderance” of evidence that he could flee.

The judge noted that Epstein’s “great wealth and his vast resources,” which include private planes and a residence in Paris, France.

And Berman said Epstein’s possession of a passport issued by the country of Austria worried him.

That expired passport has Epstein’s photo but a different name on it, as well as stated residence in Saudi Arabia. It was used in the 1980s for travel, according to prosecutors.

Berman’s decision additionally noted that Epstein recently made payments to potential witnesses against him, that there have been allegations that Epstein failed to comply with requirements for registered sex offenders, and that agents of his intimidated witnesses in a prior investigation.

The top 10 public US colleges that pay off the most

Then, using data from PayScale’s College Salary Report, we divided net cost by graduates’ expected annual earnings, which was calculated based on the median salary of graduates with less than five years of experience as well as those with 10 or more years of experience. The ranking gives greater weight to workers’ earnings in the years immediately after college, when individuals are the most impacted by college costs and student debt. (You can read our full methodology here.) The top public university on our list is the University of Washington in Seattle, a school where the average net cost for in-state students from families that make between $48,001 and $75,000 per year is $8,984 and the median salary for alumni with 10 or more years of experience is $111,800.

McDonald’s adds DoorDash as new delivery partner, ending exclusivity with UberEats

McDonald’s said Tuesday that it is adding DoorDash as a new delivery partner, bringing an end to its exclusive partnership with UberEats. UberEats has been the sole U.S. delivery provider for McDonald’s since 2017, bringing delivery to roughly 64% of McDonald’s U.S. stores. Still, Chris Kempczinski, McDonald’s U.S. head, told reporters at a media event in May that delivery orders only make up about 2% to 3% of its business.

McDonald's adds DoorDash as new delivery partner, ending exclusivity with UberEats

McDonald’s said Tuesday that it is adding DoorDash as a new delivery partner, bringing an end to its exclusive partnership with UberEats.

UberEats has been the sole U.S. delivery provider for McDonald’s since 2017, bringing delivery to roughly 64% of McDonald’s U.S. stores. Since then, delivery has grown to be $3 billion business for McDonald’s. Still, Chris Kempczinski, McDonald’s U.S. head, told reporters at a media event in May that delivery orders only make up about 2% to 3% of its business.

Before Uber’s lackluster initial public offering this spring, Bloomberg reported that McDonald’s had been pushing for lower delivery commission fees and an end to the exclusive partnership. Every time that a customer places an order on UberEats’ platform, restaurants have to pay between a fee that reportedly ranges between 15% to 30%, taking a chunk of the restaurants’ profits. In its filing to go public, Uber said that it charges a lower service fee to some of its largest chain restaurant partners to gain access those restaurants’ customers.

Delivery commission fees have been a source of ire for McDonald’s U.S. franchisees, who formed the National Owners Association last year as corporate management pushed for changes that weighed on their profitability.

DoorDash’s partnership with the fast-food giant will launch in the Houston, Texas area across more than 200 restaurants on July 29.

“Building on the success of McDelivery in the US, we’re excited to make McDelivery accessible to customers on DoorDash, which is available in all 50 states and reaches 80% of Americans, making it even more convenient for our customers to enjoy their favorite McDonald’s menu items on their terms,” Kempczinksi said in a statement.

As part of the partnership, McDonald’s menu will be available on DoorDash’s subscription program, which provides its members with unlimited free delivery on orders of $12 or more.

Shares of Uber dropped less than 1% in afternoon trading Tuesday. Shares of fellow third-party delivery provider GrubHub fell 2%.
