'Star Wars: Episode IX's title is 'The Rise of Skywalker' — Watch the trailer here

After nearly two years of waiting, the much-anticipated finale to the Skywalker Saga finally has a name: “The Rise of Skywalker.”

At Star Wars Celebration in Chicago on Friday, Disney unveiled the first trailer for what has until now been called “Star Wars: Episode IX.”

The film will not take place directly after the events of “The Last Jedi,” director J.J. Abrams said Friday during the “Star Wars: Episode IX” panel at the Chicago event.

The trailer features voice over from Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, telling Rey, “We’ve passed on all we know. A thousand generations live in you now. But this is your fight.”

She is carrying his hand-me-down lightsaber, now mended following the events of “The Last Jedi,” and staring down the barrel of Kylo Ren’s TIE fighter in a desert.

Through several cuts we see characters from the previous two films in the newest “Star Wars” trilogy as well as returning favorites such as Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian.

The trailer wraps with ominous theme music and cackling laughter. It is likely the voice of Emperor Sheev Palpatine. Once the trailer was shown at the panel, Ian McDiarmid, the actor behind the iconic villain, appeared from backstage telling the tech team to roll the clip again.

“The Rise of Skywalker” is the final installment in the nine-film “Star Wars” saga centered around the Skywalkers. Not much is known about the plot of the film, only that some time has passed between the second and third installments in the most recent trilogy.

Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Kelly Marie Tran, and Oscar Isaac have returned to reprise their roles as Rey, Finn, Rose and Poe, members of the resistance. Adam Driver and Domhnall Gleeson also return as Kylo Ren aka Ben Solo and General Armitage Hux, leaders of the First Order.

Joonas Suotamo, who took over the role of Chewbacca from Peter Mayhew for the last four “Star Wars” films, will also be featured in the film. Naomi Ackie will take on the role of newcomer Jannah. During the panel, Ackie dodged questions about whether this character was related to Lando Calrissian.

“Lando is a very charming man, so he could have children all over the universe,” Ackie said.

The late Carrie Fisher also appeared in the trailer. Unused footage from “The Force Awakens” has been repurposed to give her character Leia Organa more scenes within the film. Abrams said that CGI was never an option for extending her presence in the film.

Former Navy SEAL: Don't do this if you want to get promoted

Want to get ahead at work? Don’t fixate on landing a promotion, says former U.S. Navy SEAL Jocko Willink, who is now an author and leadership coach.

If you’re focused on earning a title change or salary bump, he tells CNBC Make It, “you start to miss out on the things that are important parts of your job,” such as being a team player or supporting your boss.

Plus, only looking out for yourself might rub your coworkers the wrong way, which can hurt you in the long run. “In your mind, you think no one notices that you’re maneuvering and you’re trying to be noticed, when in reality, most of the time when you’re trying to stand up above everyone else … everyone else on the team notices and they don’t like it,” he says.

That means that “when the opportunity comes for them to pull you down, they’re going to take it.”

California sues Trump over ‘gag rule’ on abortion access

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced Monday that the state filed a lawsuit against the administration of President Donald Trump over its new rule that restricts access to abortions and other reproductive health services. “Medical care should be between a woman and her doctor, not the president or the vice president of the United States.” Several of the other lawsuits filed by California involve health-care policies of the administration.

California sues Trump over 'gag rule' on abortion access

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced Monday that the state filed a lawsuit against the administration of President Donald Trump over its new rule that restricts access to abortions and other reproductive health services.

The lawsuit, filed in federal court in San Francisco, comes as at least a dozen other states also are preparing to challenge the so-called “gag rule,” which bars the use of Title X money “to perform, promote, refer for, or support abortion as a method of family planning.”

“This rule gags our doctors, nurses and other care providers from fully discussing reproductive health with their patients and it bans doctors from referring patients for abortion,” Becerra, a Democrat, told reporters at a press conference in Sacramento. “Medical care should be between a woman and her doctor, not the president or the vice president of the United States.”

The Title X program, which dates back to 1970, provides family-planning and related preventative health-care assistance to about 4 million low-income individuals each year through independent clinics, including many affiliated with Planned Parenthood. The new rule “makes notable improvements designed to increase the number of patients served and improve the quality of their care,” the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced Feb. 22.

Asked for comment, an HHS spokesperson said: “As a matter of policy, we do not comment on pending litigation.”

The White House didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

This marks the 47th lawsuit by the Democratic-led state against the Trump administration. Several of the other lawsuits filed by California involve health-care policies of the administration.

In December 2017, California sued the administration over rules that allowed some employers to opt out of providing employees birth control coverage on religious or moral grounds. Also, the state is suing to defend Obamacare in federal court.

“We’re ready for this next challenge,” Becerra said. “We’re ready to stand up for a woman’s right to make her own health-care decision about her own body.”

Out of all the beneficiaries of the Title X program, one in four live in California. More than half of them are at or below the federal poverty level.

Becerra called the new regulation “dangerous” for women and their families and claimed it “will interfere with the practice of medicine and result in clinics going out of business due to financial strain.” He also called it “a systematic effort by this administration to end access to birth control and safe, legal abortion.”

He said the costs of the new rule for the Golden State “would be staggering.” He estimated that for every dollar spent in publicly funded family-planning programs the government saves more than $7 in Medicaid-related costs.

The state attorney general estimated that the potential gross savings from preventing what he called “unintended pregnancies in California” was more than $1.3 billion annually.

This Bentley is now the world’s fastest SUV, beating out a Lamborghini

In the battle to make the world’s fastest sport utility vehicle, score another win for Bentley. The British automaker says its new all-wheel-drive Bentayga Speed SUV can reach a top speed of 190 miles per hour, which just barely edges out the Lamborghini Urus, at 189.5 MPH, to claim the title of “the world’s fastest production SUV,” Bentley said in a press release on Thursday.

This Bentley is now the world's fastest SUV, beating out a Lamborghini

In the battle to make the world’s fastest sport utility vehicle, score another win for Bentley.

The British automaker says its new all-wheel-drive Bentayga Speed SUV can reach a top speed of 190 miles per hour, which just barely edges out the Lamborghini Urus, at 189.5 MPH, to claim the title of “the world’s fastest production SUV,” Bentley said in a press release on Thursday.

Each of the luxury SUVs has a starting price of around $200,000.

Technically, Bentley is actually reclaiming its crown as the manufacturer of the fastest SUV on the market. The Lamborghini Urus, first released by the Italian automaker in 2018, took the title from an earlier iteration of the Bentayga SUV that tops out at 187 MPH, according to Jalopnik. (The world’s fastest non-SUV cars in production can top speeds of 250 MPH)

But, Bentley added some additional power to the new and aptly-named Bentayga Speed, which the company touts as having 626 brake horsepower (versus 600 for the regular Bentayga). Both Bentayga SUVs sport a 6.0-litre, twin-turbocharged W12 engine.

Gaming stocks are getting killed after earnings

Video game stocks are getting killed Wednesday after two of the top companies in the space reported quarterly earnings.

Shares of EA tanked 12 percent Wednesday, a day after the company cited “intense competition” in the space as contributing to a revenue miss for its fiscal third quarter of 2019.

Take-Two Interactive, which reported quarterly earnings Wednesday morning, fell 10 percent in early trading.

The company reported GAAP net revenue of $1.249 billion and GAAP net income per diluted share of $1.57.

The reports appeared to drag Activision Blizzard lower as well. The company doesn’t report its quarterly earnings until next week, but the stock fell roughly 9 percent Wednesday.

EA’s Chief Executive Andrew Wilson said heightened competition in the gaming space dented the company’s sales during the quarter. Gaming companies are seeing a particular threat from free-to-play games like the wildly popular “Fortnite.”

“Our [Battlefield V] launch didn’t resonate as strongly as we would have liked it to with players, and we were never truly able to catch up,” Wilson said on the company’s earnings call Tuesday. “And as our competitors continued to build momentum, whether that was ‘Fortnite’ or ‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ or ‘Call of Duty,’ we continued to stall from where we needed to be.”

Take-Two, for its part, said its title launches outperformed expectations. In October, the company launched “Red Dead Redemption 2,” which it says sold more units in the first eight days than the original title sold in its first eight years.

“We don’t see [a competitive environment] at all,” CEO Strauss Zelnick told CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street” Wednesday. “We are not seeing any competitive headwinds at all as long as we deliver quality.”

Zelnick said the company admires “big hits” out of other companies, like “Fortnite,” but isn’t concerned about new free-to-play threats.

“In terms of a console title being made available free-to-play. Remember that ‘Fortnite’ came about in a roundabout way,” Zelnick said on the company’s earnings call. “I think that’s sort of a standalone experience. I think it’s hard to replicate and it would probably be ill-advised to try to replicate it. … I’m not worried at all about someone else establishing a free-to-play approach.”

Clarification: This story has been updated to remove an incorrect metric around Take-Two Interactive’s fiscal third quarter 2019 earnings report. Take-Two Interactive’s earnings per share figure is not comparable to estimates.

On Tuesday, Conde Nast International will launch Vogue Business, a fashion industry title that is aimed at professionals, after a turbulent couple of years for the publisher.

Vogue Business will start as a newsletter, rather than a website, aiming for a niche audience over having broad reach.

The new magazine will be run separately from the main Vogue title with its own editorial team and will cover the impact of technology on the industry, trends in manufacturing, marketing and hiring as well as broader issues such as climate change and geopolitics.

“In a consolidating media landscape, the launch of a new global title is a rare thing”, said Wolfgang Blau, President of Conde Nast International,” in an emailed to CNBC Monday. The company has been beta testing the newsletter with people in 29 countries, Conde Nast said.

The glossy magazine industry is no longer what it was, where sleek printed titles would be funded by advertisers keen to reach their aspirational audiences. Now, people read news and features and watch videos on the likes of Snapchat, Instagram and Facebook, which are more attractive to advertisers because of the data they have on users. Legacy publishers have had to catch up, and many are now putting their titles behind paywalls.

“It’s my habit,” Chang told CNBC in a recent episode of “Managing Asia.”

As chairman emeritus of PIL — a title honoring his contribution to the 51-year-old company — Chang said he visits the firm’s Singapore headquarters daily to run through its operations and check in with every department.

The US has a chance to have its first World Chess Champion since Bobby Fischer

The World Chess Championship begins in London on Friday between reigning champion Magnus Carlsen and U.S. challenger Fabiano Caruana. Carlsen told CNBC on the eve of the opening match. I enjoy the struggle of playing human players. Should 26-year-old Caruana win, he’ll be the first American since Bobby Fischer in the mid-1970’s to hold the title. Chess has 600 million fans worldwide and its promoters claim that makes it the most participated sport in the world.

The US has a chance to have its first World Chess Champion since Bobby Fischer

The World Chess Championship begins in London on Friday between reigning champion Magnus Carlsen and U.S. challenger Fabiano Caruana. They’ll contest twelve matches spread over a three-week period to decide the 2018 winner.

There’s over $1 million dollars in prize money on offer, with this match being billed as the toughest to call in years, given how evenly matched the two player’s rankings are.

“I want the games to be long and not so much decided by home preparation. It’s all about a battle of minds on the board, which is really what I find most exciting. I think this is what Fabiano also finds the most exciting, since he is not the kind of player who relies on home preparation.” Carlsen told CNBC on the eve of the opening match.

This head-to-head battle of human intelligence is the Norwegian’s preferred form of competition and, despite advances in A.I. technology, he wouldn’t want to see a computer entered into the Chess World Championship.

“Computers are better than humans now and that’s not going to change,” Carlsen said. “I enjoy playing the best, but only as long as it’s a human. I enjoy the struggle of playing human players. To me playing a computer is far less interesting and not something I would do in an official tournament or match.’

Carlsen has been the champion since 2010, winning the title three-times in that period, but said in the pre-match conference that his form would need to “step up” if he was to win.

Should 26-year-old Caruana win, he’ll be the first American since Bobby Fischer in the mid-1970’s to hold the title. Despite the history and the quality of his opponent, Caruana insisted he was looking forward to the challenge.

“His standards are very high, he’s still having good results, just maybe not as good as he’d hoped,” the Italian-American told CNBC at the launch of the event. “It’s like boxing, you have two guys who are slugging it out for a very long time and I think it’ll go down to the wire, which is another good reason to tune in.” he added.

Chess has 600 million fans worldwide and its promoters claim that makes it the most participated sport in the world.

The newly elected president of chess’s governing body FIDE, Arkady Dvorkovich, wants to increase prize-money for future tournaments and ensure the women’s game has equal stature. Currently, total prizes on offer for women is roughly a quarter of what the men make.

The 2016 world championship took place in New York and attracted a host of famous names to watch including Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerburg and Jay-Z. A further ten million people followed the match online and that number is predicted to increase this time around.
