Arrest warrant issued for Odell Beckham Jr. after locker room celebration with LSU players

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. celebrates after the LSU Tigers beat the Clemson Tigers in the College Football Playoff national championship game at Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

The New Orleans Police Department obtained an arrest warrant for NFL star Odell Beckham Jr. following an alleged incident with a security guard after the Louisiana State University championship victory.

The warrant for the Cleveland Browns wide receiver and former LSU player is related to a misdemeanor charge of simple battery, the NOPD confirmed to CNBC on Thursday.

Following LSU’s victory in the national championship on Monday, Beckham celebrated with the team’s players in their locker room. The warrant comes after a video circulated on social media that appeared to show Beckham striking the backside of a guard in the locker room.

“We are aware of the incident and have been in touch with Odell and his representatives on the matter,” a Cleveland Browns spokesman said. “They are cooperating with the proper authorities to appropriately address the situation.”

The top-ranked Louisiana State Tigers defeated No. 3 Clemson by 42-25 in Monday night’s college football playoff final.

Olay’s Super Bowl ad will speak to the women in the room many commercials ignore

Procter & Gamble skin care brand Olay is coming back to the Super Bowl, this time with a spot that aims specifically to speak to the women watching the big game.

But Super Bowl ads have traditionally catered to and starred men, despite women being the primary household purchasers and such a substantial part of the fan base.

Olay's Super Bowl ad will speak to the women in the room many commercials ignore

Procter & Gamble skin care brand Olay is coming back to the Super Bowl, this time with a spot that aims specifically to speak to the women watching the big game.

Olay said it seeks to reach the NFL’s wide base of female fans with the new spot, which will feature an all-female cast. The NFL said in 2017 that 45% of its fans are women and they comprise a huge chunk of Super Bowl viewership. But Super Bowl ads have traditionally catered to and starred men, despite women being the primary household purchasers and such a substantial part of the fan base.

Olay worked with creative agency Badger & Winters on the spot.

Last year, Olay made its Super Bowl debut with a spot featuring Sarah Michelle Gellar in a humorous spot called “Killer Skin.”

Web creator Tim Berners-Lee launches plan to 'fix' the internet

Tim Berners-Lee, the creator of the World Wide Web, is officially launching his plan to “fix” the internet.

The World Wide Web Foundation, a non-profit campaign group set up by Berners-Lee, has secured the backing of tech giants Facebook, Google and Microsoft for the scheme, dubbed the “contract for the web.”

The British computer scientist first outlined his vision to overhaul organizations’ approach to the internet at the Web Summit event last year. At the time, he said the web was “at a tipping point.” The contract calls on companies to respect consumers’ data privacy and urges governments to ensure everyone has access to the internet.

“Never before has the web’s power for good been more under threat,” Adrian Lovett, CEO of the World Wide Web Foundation, told CNBC in an interview Friday. He added that the rise of hateful content and fake news being propagated online meant something had to change.

“We’re launching the contract for the web for the world’s first-ever global action plan to protect the web as a force for good, bringing together companies, governments and citizens from around the world to say these are the things that need to be done to put things back on the right track.”

Other organizations backing the contract include DuckDuckGo, Reddit, GitHub and Reporters Without Borders.

One major component of the pledge is the requirement that the web remains an accessible tool for all users. Lovett said that, “despite the progress we’ve seen in getting the world connected, half the world doesn’t have access.”

He said the contract comes with nine core principles, while underneath them is a total of 76 clauses. “Not every organization has to abide by all of them,” he insisted. “A good number of those 76 will be relevant.”

What to buy on Cyber Monday

This holiday season, sales are set to reach $1.1 trillion, according to a survey by Deloitte, and the typical shopper expects to spend more than $1,000 during November and December, according to the National Retail Federation. Much of this money will be spent on online-shopping-focused Cyber Monday, which falls on December 2 this year.

Sales are expected to increase 18.9% from last year and reach $9.4 billion.

“Cyber Monday is interesting because it typically has more deals than Black Friday, but not [as many as] Thanksgiving,” says Michael Bonebright of DealNews.com.

Researchers expect the wide range of discounts, which you can snare from your couch or cubicle, will push more than 68 million people to shop on Cyber Monday this year. If you’re one of those shoppers, it’s important to know what products will offer the best deals.

Here’s what experts say you should buy on the Monday after Thanksgiving.

Netflix is leaving millions on the table by not giving 'The Irishman' a wide theatrical release

Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Ray Romano star in Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman.” Netflix

Netflix is never going to adhere to the traditional rules of the box office. Yes, the streaming service creates its own content, but it isn’t a Hollywood movie studio. Ninety-day film releases at 3,000 theaters across the U.S. just aren’t what Netflix does. And that’s not about to change, even with a big name like Martin Scorsese. Scorsese’s most recent film, a gangster pseudo-biopic called “The Irishman,” is currently getting a limited run in theaters in New York and Los Angeles. It will roll out to a few more cities over the next few weeks before finally arriving on Netflix on Nov. 27. Demand for tickets has been high, as Scorsese fans clamor to see his most recent work, which has already been widely praised by critics as “a new American classic.” Tickets for showings at the Belasco Theater in New York are currently on StubHub for between $65 and $85 each. The three-hour-and-30-minute flick was passed over by several studios before being nabbed by Netflix. The $100 million production budget, reliance on digital de-aging technology and run-time length were all concerns. Especially, considering the fact that in the last few years it has become harder and harder for movies that aren’t blockbuster tentpoles, franchise-linked or animated to post a profit.

“The Irishman” is about prestige. Snagging Scorsese’s latest picture will drive incremental sign-ups to its platform for those who are unable to see the Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci-led gangster film. The only reasons “The Irishman” is playing in theaters before it is released on Netflix is because Scorsese, who has recently lamented that big blockbuster Marvel films aren’t “cinema,” asked for it to be and because Netflix wants the film to be eligible for Oscar contention. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ eligibility requirements state that a film must run at least seven consecutive days at a commercial theater in Los Angeles County and be shown at least three times a day, with at least one screening between the hours of 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. It’s the same strategy that Netflix employed with the Oscar-winning “Roma.”

What if…

Adidas and Nike supply tactics are an abuse of market dominance, British retail giant says

The sales and supply strategies of big sports brands such as Adidas and Nike should face government investigations, U.K. retail giant Sports Direct claimed.

In a statement on Monday, the British firm accused global sports apparel brands of abusing their dominance in the market by constantly chopping and changing the availability of their products to retailers.

“These ‘must have’ brands hold an extremely strong bargaining position vis-a-vis the retailers within their supply networks and use their market power to implement market wide practices aimed at controlling the supply and, ultimately, the pricing of their products,” the company claimed.

Sports Direct said Adidas and other big brands regularly employed an array of unfair trade practices, such as “segmentation policies” that restricted the range of products available to retailers, the withdrawal of the supply of products, and in most cases, “an outright refusal to supply.”

The retailer added that brands had regularly withdrawn its supply of key products, such as soccer merchandise, or refused to supply key products with no justification.

“Sports Direct believes that the industry as a whole would benefit from a wide market review by the appropriate authorities in both the U.K. and Europe,” the statement said.

Inside the NY Giants money boot camp: How to tackle some wild spending habits

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — On a morning in mid-September, former National Football League player Patrick Kerney stood in front of an audience of rookies from the New York Giants. His agenda: to help the young players avoid bad spending habits, as well as teach basic money management and investing concepts. “When you decide to spend that dollar on goods and services today instead of investing for the future, you are forgoing what that dollar could become,” Kerney explained to young Giants players, including quarterback Daniel Jones.

Former NFL player and financial expert Patrick Kerney teaches money management and investment concepts to NY Giants rookies at their training facility on Sept. 16, 2019.

He gets where they are coming from. Kerney spent 11 seasons as an NFL defensive end — first for the Atlanta Falcons and later for the Seattle Seahawks. After retiring, he turned to finance and is now principal of Kerney Insurance. He also travels around the country, visiting NFL teams to help financially educate players. “I look back now, I thought I knew a decent bit,” Kerney told CNBC. “I knew nothing. “That’s the hard part — this invulnerability that comes with being a professional athlete,” he added. “And, you know, being surrounded by ‘yes’ men, it warps your mind.”

The ‘dumb-jock complex’

‘I was broke’

Former Giants wide receiver David Tyree understands how it can happen. During his early years, he made several mistakes — financial and otherwise. In his second season, he was arrested for drug possession. “I was very frivolous. There was no budget. There was no advisor. There was no counsel,” said Tyree. “With that recipe, it certainly leads to a lot of poor decisions,” he added. “And, honestly, after my rookie year — I was broke.”

Tyree turned things around. He made the famous helmet catch in the 2008 Super Bowl against the New England Patriots, helping propel the team to the championship. He is now director of player engagement for the Giants and arranges Kerney’s meetings. In those meetings, Kerney focuses on several key strategies.

Have a money surplus

Players need to make sure they are not spending more than they are making. While it sounds simple, it is easy to start piling up credit card debt. If that is happening, they have a spending problem, Kerney pointed out. That means it’s time to scale back.

The $6.4 million watch

Kerney advises avoiding big, unnecessary purchases. Instead, he said people should invest that money and watch it grow. “It’s reasonable to expect your buying power to double every 10 years if you are willing to educate yourself,” he told the Giants rookies.

One of his favorite examples is the expensive watch, the cost of which, if invested instead, could multiply many times over. “This is what sort of gets me at the draft and with young spenders,” Kerney said. “When I see the $100,000 watch on their wrist — I’m not judging them, I’m not telling guys what to spend on and what not to — but I wonder, do you think the jeweler told them that $100,000 watch actually cost them $6.4 million?”

Hire a credible financial advisor

The choice of financial advisor can make or break players’ future returns, Kerney said. What they shouldn’t do is base their decision on whether the advisor represents other teammates, or if he or she is nice or takes them out to a nice dinner.

So many guys come into this with sort of the dumb-jock complex, without realizing that everyone else their age also has no knowledge of what to do from a fiscal standpoint or an investment standpoint. Patrick Kerney Former NFL player

Instead, access the advisor’s credibility and look at his or her track record — what the returns have been over the years. “We, as young people, don’t ever think of ourselves as employers,” Kerney said. “But when we hire a financial advisor, we are the employer and often made to think like an employee and are afraid to ask probing questions.”

Start talking

In addition to rookies, Kerney also meets with team veterans. One of them is Giants wide receiver Russell Shepard. As a seven-year veteran, he’s seen a lot of young players unsure about what to do with their newfound wealth. He thinks its time to shift the conversation in the locker room. “We want to get the professional athletes of any sport, of any gender, to change the conversations from cars, clothes to investments, you know, financial steps, taxes, things like that,” said Shepard, who helps teach financial literacy to young athletes through his nonprofit, The Shepard Family Foundation.

Giants safety Michael Thomas agrees. “It’s important for not just rookies but for vets, too,” said Thomas, who also includes personal finance lessons as part of his youth football camp, Camp Mike T. “Have the conversation of, ‘What have you done with your money? … What are you investing in? What have you learned?” he added. “So you can keep growing and you don’t make the same mistakes.” Kerney hopes those who attend his class take his advice. “I really want these young guys to understand what this opportunity is,” he said. “To get this much money this early in life, if you are educated, the runway of decades ahead of them makes a ton of difference,” he added. “They have the chance to change the trajectory of their family for generations.”

Here's a first look at all of the new products Apple announced today

Apple made a lot of announcements on Tuesday, but the highlights were probably a few pieces of new hardware including three models of iPhone, a new iPad, and the Apple Watch Series 5. I had a chance to take a look at all of them after the show and have a few quick takeaways.

iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max

Apple is putting its focus on the things people care about: price, battery life and cameras. The iPhone 11’s list price is $699, which is $50 cheaper than last year’s equivalent, the XR. Apple also promises an hour more of battery life, making it the longest-lasting iPhone ever. The iPhone 11 Pro promises 4 hours longer battery life than the iPhone XS, while the iPhone 11 Pro has 5 hours more than the iPhone XS Max. You get wide angle, ultra wide angle and 2x optical zoom on the Pro models, provided by three different — and all very visible — cameras on the back.

The iPhone 11 doesn’t have the optical zoom. But the iPhone 11 can now take portraits of things besides just people since it has two lenses. I also like the front facing camera on all three which can automatically turn into wide angle for fitting more people into a selfie.

They look nice. I particularly like the midnight-green color and the less glossy finish on the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.

I wish there was reverse wireless charging to charge AirPods — a feature that was rumored but was never mentioned. I like that Apple will include an 18W fast charger with the Pro models for faster charging. The cameras look promising in early tests, too.

10.2-inch iPad

The new iPad starts at $329. Todd Haselton | CNBC

The new 10.2-inch iPad felt like an iPad Pro. I love the added keyboard support, something the 9.7-inch lacked without Apple’s Smart Connector. And you can definitely see and feel the added screen size. Starting at $329, this seems like a no-brainer for most folks who “just need a new iPad.”
