After US women’s World Cup victory, the fight for equal pay takes center stage

On Wednesday, New York City held a ticker-tape parade and a ceremony for the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team (USWNT) to celebrate the team’s 2019 FIFA World Cup victory. When FIFA president Gianni Infantino walked onto the field to award the players their medals, the crowd instead chanted “Equal pay!” I think he’s with us. I think he’s on the right side of things. I think he’s going to make things right.”

After US women's World Cup victory, the fight for equal pay takes center stage

On Wednesday, New York City held a ticker-tape parade and a ceremony for the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team (USWNT) to celebrate the team’s 2019 FIFA World Cup victory.

The event made it clear that after their victory, the USWNT has set their sights on equal pay — and they’ve earned plenty of support in the process.

When the USWNT defeated Netherlands 2-0 in the 2019 FIFA World Cup Final, the sold out crowd of nearly 60,000 people gathered at France’s Parc Olympique Lyonnais burst into cheers. When FIFA president Gianni Infantino walked onto the field to award the players their medals, the crowd instead chanted “Equal pay!”

The same was true on Wednesday when United States Soccer Federation (USSF) President Carlos Cordeiro took the stage of the celebration ceremony for the USWNT at New York City Hall — the crowd chanted “Pay them!” and “Equal pay!” as he took the podium.

“In recent months, you have raised your voices for equality,” said Cordeiro. “Today, on behalf of all of us at U.S. Soccer, I want to say we hear you, we believe in you and we are committed to doing right by you.”

“We believe at U.S. Soccer that all female athletes deserve fair and equitable pay,” he continued, “and together, I believe we can get this done, because as this team has taught us, being the greatest isn’t just about how you play on the field, it’s about what you stand for off the field. It’s about who we are as a sport and a country.”

When USWNT co-captain Megan Rapinoe later addressed the crowd she joked about the cheers, but eventually came to Cordeiro’s defense. “Everybody in power gets booed” said Rapinoe. “But I’m going to stick my neck out a little bit, I’m going to endorse Carlos. I think he’s with us. I think he’s on the right side of things. I think he’s going to make things right.”

‘She owned the stage’ — pollster says Kamala Harris was the winner of both Democratic debate nights

'She owned the stage' — pollster says Kamala Harris was the winner of both Democratic debate nights

Sen. Kamala Harris outshined all of her 19 rivals in the first Democratic presidential debates, a longtime Republican pollster told CNBC on Friday.

“She owned the stage, and Joe Biden should have known it was coming, ” Frank Luntz said in a “Squawk Box” interview the morning after the second round of debates by Democratic presidential hopefuls.

Harris, a first-term U.S. senator and former California attorney general, came out swinging Thursday night, with pointed attacks on frontrunner Joe Biden. She called out the 76-year-old former vice president on race, saying the way he recently described his past working relationship with two segregationist lawmakers was “hurtful.”

The 54-year-old Harris, if elected, would be the second biracial president. Former President Barack Obama was the first. Harris’ parents were both immigrants — her father from Jamaica and her mother from India. They met as graduate students at the University of California, Berkeley.

At Thursday night’s debate, Harris also accused Biden of opposing busing, which Biden disputed.

“There was a little girl in California who was part of the second class to integrate her public schools, and she was bused to school every day, and that little girl was me,” Harris said.

Biden called Harris’ attack “a mischaracterization of my position across the board,” and launched into a fiery defense of his record on race. “I did not praise racists.”

Here's what you need to know about the second night of the 2020 Democratic primary debate in Miami

The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts touts the first Democratic presidential primary debates for the 2020 elections June 25, 2019 in Miami, Florida.

The 10 candidates will face off from 9 p.m. ET to 11 p.m. ET at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in Miami. The debates, hosted by NBC News, MSNBC and Telemundo, will air live on those networks both nights. CNBC will also stream them.

Half of the debate participants squared off Wednesday night in Miami, calling for changes to boost the working class and showing competing visions for health care and immigration. Thursday’s debate stage will feature four of the top five candidates, according to the vast majority of early national and state primary polls: former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

A group of 10 Democrats, including some of the top contenders for the 2020 presidential nomination, will take the stage Thursday night to round out the first primary election debate.

Jose Diaz-Balart, Savannah Guthrie, Lester Holt, Rachel Maddow and Chuck Todd will moderate the debate for a second night. Thursday’s event will feature the same rules as Wednesday’s: 60 seconds to answer questions and 30 seconds to respond to follow ups.

Several themes of Wednesday’s debate could play a role in Thursday’s contest, as well. During one of the first night’s most striking moments, just Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, said they supported Sanders’ vision of “Medicare for All” that would eliminate the private health insurance industry, one of the few areas where the contenders diverged. Among Thursday’s group, Biden has opposed a single-payer Medicare for All system, while Harris has insisted she does not want to end the private health care industry.

Meanwhile, Thursday’s contenders will likely join Wednesday’s participants in trying to make their case as the candidate best equipped to lift the working class.

Keep an eye on Biden, who has emerged as the early frontrunner in the race by leading in nearly every survey. He could have a target on his back, particularly after his comments about working with segregationist senators and suggestion that nothing would fundamentally change for wealthy donors if he became president.

Here’s who will take the stage during Thursday’s debate, listed in alphabetical order:

Former Vice President Joe Biden

Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo.

South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.

Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif.

Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.

Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif.

Author Marianne Williamson

Entrepreneur Andrew Yang

Here’s the group that already squared off on Wednesday:

Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J.

Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio

Former Rep. John Delaney

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hi.

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee

Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn.

Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke

Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.

Japan ends longstanding trade restrictions on American beef, setting stage for exports to grow

Japan has agreed to lift longstanding restrictions on American beef exports, clearing the way for U.S. products to enter the market regardless of age, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Friday.

Japan ends longstanding trade restrictions on American beef, setting stage for exports to grow

Japan has agreed to lift longstanding restrictions on American beef exports, clearing the way for U.S. products to enter the market regardless of age, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Friday.

The news comes on the heels of other important trade developments on Friday, including the Trump administration’s plans to delay auto tariffs on the EU and Japan and lift steel tariffs on Canada and Mexico.

In 2005, Japan imposed restrictions on cattle over 30 months old for U.S. beef imports in response to the outbreak of bovine spongiform encephalopathy, sometimes known as mad cow disease.

According to the USDA announcement, Japan agreed to remove that age limit for U.S. beef imports. The new terms, which take effect immediately, allow U.S. products from all cattle, regardless of age, to enter Japan for the first time since 2003, the government said.

“This is great news for American ranchers and exporters who now have full access to the Japanese market for their high-quality, safe, wholesome, and delicious U.S. beef,” Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said in a statement. “We are hopeful that Japan’s decision will help lead other markets around the world toward science-based policies.”

American beef sales to Japan topped $2 billion last year, representing approximately one-fourth of all U.S. beef exports.

The U.S. Meat Export Federation estimates that expanded access without the age restrictions could increase U.S. beef sales to Japan 7% to 10%, or by $150 million to $200 million annually. It said the ability of the industry to use beef from over-30-month cattle also will lower costs for companies exporting processed beef products to Japan.

On the news, Chicago Mercantile Exchange cattle futures moved higher, reversing some recent weakness. The August feeder cattle contract was up more than 1%, and the August live cattle contract also was slightly higher.

“There are countries and regions where it takes decades to build up to $200 million in beef exports,” said Joe Schuele, a spokesman for USMEF. “And yet in Japan, we’re going to add that business in really a short period of time. So in a way, this is kind of like opening up a whole new medium-sized market.”

Japanese regulators banned imports of U.S. beef and beef products in 2003 in response to mad cow disease being confirmed on a farm in Washington state. In late 2005, Japan agreed to restore partial access to U.S. beef but with age-based restrictions.

The U.S. is Japan’s largest beef supplier in terms of value and ranks second behind Australia in volume. Still, export competition is intensifying as New Zealand, Canada and Australia get reduced Japanese tariffs under the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the 11-nation trade deal the U.S. withdrew from in 2017 under President Donald Trump.

“Tariff rates grab all the headlines, but non-tariff barriers are often just as important, if not more so, when it comes to determining market access,” said National Cattlemen’s Beef Association President Jennifer Houston. “Hopefully, this will help spotlight this important point and lead to more trade victories in the near future.”

Scotland will prepare for an independence referendum before May 2021

Scotland should hold an independence referendum before the current Scottish parliamentary term ends in May 2021 and will prepare legislation for this to happen, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said on Wednesday. “A choice between Brexit and a future for Scotland as an independent European nation should be offered in the lifetime of this parliament,” Sturgeon told Holyrood, Scotland’s devolved parliament.

Scotland will prepare for an independence referendum before May 2021

Scotland should hold an independence referendum before the current Scottish parliamentary term ends in May 2021 and will prepare legislation for this to happen, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said on Wednesday.

“A choice between Brexit and a future for Scotland as an independent European nation should be offered in the lifetime of this parliament,” Sturgeon told Holyrood, Scotland’s devolved parliament.

She said a devolved parliament bill would be drawn up before the end of 2019.

The permission of Britain’s sovereign parliament at this stage was not needed, she said, but would be eventually be necessary “to put beyond doubt or challenge our ability to apply the bill to an independence referendum.”

Sturgeon is under pressure from her nationalist movement to provide a clear way forward in the quest for an independent Scotland.

But Britain is mired in political chaos due to Brexit and it is still unclear whether, when or even if Britain will leave the European Union.

Scotland, part of the United Kingdom for more than 300 years, rejected independence by 10 percentage points in a 2014 referendum.

Differences over Brexit have strained the United Kingdom. Scotland and Northern Ireland voted to stay in the EU in a 2016 referendum, while Wales and England vote to leave.

Those who want to maintain the United Kingdom argue that Brexit has made no difference to how Scots feel, and the secession vote should not be repeated.

But Sturgeon argued that leaving the world’s largest trading bloc endangers Britain and Scotland’s economic well-being.

“We face being forced to the margins, sidelined within a UK that is itself increasingly sidelined on the international stage. Independence by contrast would allow us to protect our place in Europe,” she said.

“We need a more solid foundation on which to build our future as a country.”

US-China trade tensions appear to be in a 'de-escalatory' stage, says Morgan Stanley

US, China are in a ‘de-escalatory’ environment: Morgan Stanley 3:54 AM ET Thu, 28 March 2019 | 02:27

Trade negotiations between the U.S. and China appear to have reached a stage where they look to be “really working line by line on a document,” said a Morgan Stanley strategist on Thursday.

“Prior to (early December,) we had been in a continually escalatory environment, (but) we are now in a de-escalatory environment, hopefully heading to the signature of a document,” said Jonathan Garner, Morgan Stanley’s chief equity strategist for Asia and emerging markets.

The latest round of talks between both countries continued in Beijing on Thursday. After that, both sides are expected to hold meetings in Washington starting April 3. The two largest economies in the world are negotiating a trade deal after a tariff fight that started last year.

It looks like Chinese negotiators are eager to get an agreement fully and tightly drafted before Chinese President Xi Jinping travels to the U.S. to sign it in the months ahead, Garner told CNBC’s “Street Signs.”

Garner’s comments came after Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said at the Boao Forum for Asia that China will widen market access for foreign banking and insurance firms, and expand the opening of the services sector — especially the financial sector — to foreign investors.

Li’s latest comments onBeijing opening up markets to foreign investment signals “concrete action” that the world’s second largest economy is taking to address Washington’s concerns in the ongoing bilateral trade dispute, said Garner.

“Last summer, the approach from China was solely on the bilateral trade deficit. This is all part of a kind of re-energized reform and opening up in China right now,” said Garner.

— Reuters contributed to this report.

Oprah Winfrey had the best explanation for what the weird Apple TV event was really about

Apple talked a lot on stage on Monday about its new services, including Apple News+, Apple TV+, a credit card it’s launching with Goldman Sachs and an all-you-can-eat gaming subscription named Arcade. But Apple provided little detail on how many of those services would work.

It didn’t announce pricing for Apple TV+, perhaps the biggest news of the day, and trotted celebrities on stage to talk about new movies and TV shows instead of showing trailers or revealing a sprawling library capable of challenging Amazon and Netflix. Wall Street wasn’t impressed. It was, plainly put, a weird event that was short on details.

But Oprah Winfrey had the best take on why all of this matters when she appeared on Apple’s stage.

“The Apple platform allows me to do what I do in a whole new way,” she said, sounding a bit like everyone who had appeared before her.

But then she said this:

“They’re in a billion pockets, ya’ll. A billion pockets.”

Oprah was referring to the number of iPhones being used around the world where Apple’s premium services will come pre-installed. Apple no longer reports individual unit sales of its hardware products each quarter but said in January that there are now more than 900 million iPhones in use around the world.

On top of that, there are hundreds of millions of iPads, Macs and Apple TVs in use today. Plus, Apple’s TV services will be available on third-party devices like Roku and Amazon Fire TV.

Apple talked a lot on stage on Monday about its new services, including Apple News+, Apple TV+, a credit card it’s launching with Goldman Sachs and an all-you-can-eat gaming subscription named Arcade. But Oprah Winfrey had the best take on why all of this matters when she appeared on Apple’s stage. Oprah was referring to the number of iPhones being used around the world where Apple’s premium services will come pre-installed. On top of that, there are hundreds of millions of iPads, Macs and Apple

Oprah Winfrey had the best explanation for what the weird Apple TV event was really about

Apple talked a lot on stage on Monday about its new services, including Apple News+, Apple TV+, a credit card it’s launching with Goldman Sachs and an all-you-can-eat gaming subscription named Arcade. But Apple provided little detail on how many of those services would work.

It didn’t announce pricing for Apple TV+, perhaps the biggest news of the day, and trotted celebrities on stage to talk about new movies and TV shows instead of showing trailers or revealing a sprawling library capable of challenging Amazon and Netflix. Wall Street wasn’t impressed. It was, plainly put, a weird event that was short on details.

But Oprah Winfrey had the best take on why all of this matters when she appeared on Apple’s stage.

“The Apple platform allows me to do what I do in a whole new way,” she said, sounding a bit like everyone who had appeared before her.

But then she said this:

“They’re in a billion pockets, ya’ll. A billion pockets.”

Oprah was referring to the number of iPhones being used around the world where Apple’s premium services will come pre-installed. Apple no longer reports individual unit sales of its hardware products each quarter but said in January that there are now more than 900 million iPhones in use around the world.

On top of that, there are hundreds of millions of iPads, Macs and Apple TVs in use today. Plus, Apple’s TV services will be available on third-party devices like Roku and Amazon Fire TV.
