Trump says the US has come to a substantial phase one deal with China

The U.S. has come to a “very substantial phase one deal” with China in the high-stakes trade negotiations between the two economic superpowers, President Donald Trump said Friday.

“Phase two will start almost immediately” after the first phase is signed, Trump said in the Oval Office alongside Chinese Vice Premier Liu He.

The first portion of the trade deal will be written over the next three weeks, Trump said. It will address intellectual property and financial services concerns, along with purchases of about $40 billion to $50 billion worth of agricultural products by China, Trump said.

It’s a “tremendous deal for the farmers,” Trump said.

Vogue's Anna Wintour: Daily routine includes a 4 a.m. wake up call and her 'magic box of tricks'

In 2017, Forbes named Vogue’s editor-in-chief and artistic director of publishing company Condé Nast Anna Wintour the most powerful woman in media and entertainment, topping even Beyonce, who scored the fourth spot.

Wintour, 69, has been leading the fashion magazine for more than 30 years after getting the position in 1988 at the age of 39.

But despite her high-profile position, Wintour keeps a relevantly low profile, granting only a few media interviews.

She is also infamous for reportedly inspiring a main character in the 2003 book “The Devil Wears Prada,” written by a former assistant at Vogue. The book and later the film depict a fashion editor (played by Meryl Streep in the movie) who is an icy and unreasonably demanding boss.

“I know many people are curious about who I am and how I approach my work,” Wintour tells Masterclass.com in a 12-part series teaching her management techniques.

In the video, Wintour says she credits her career success to having a strong vision, surrounding herself with a good and diverse team and maintaining a daily routine that helps her stay on track.

“I have a pretty consistent structure for my day that I follow that I find that works really well for me,” Wintour says.

Here’s a look at Wintour’s daily routine, according to Masterclass.com.

Cramer urges investors to give new Lowe’s CEO more time to fix things as shares plummet

CNBC’s Jim Cramer on Wednesday urged investors not to bail on Lowe’s new CEO Marvin Ellison after the home improvement giant reported disappointing earnings that led to a major sell-off in the stock. “People have written off Ellison but he’s been there for five minutes,” Cramer told CNBC’s “Squawk Box. ” Exactly one year ago, Lowe’s announced that Ellison would take over as CEO, effective July 2018, poaching him from the C-suite at J.C.

Cramer urges investors to give new Lowe's CEO more time to fix things as shares plummet

CNBC’s Jim Cramer on Wednesday urged investors not to bail on Lowe’s new CEO Marvin Ellison after the home improvement giant reported disappointing earnings that led to a major sell-off in the stock.

“People have written off Ellison but he’s been there for five minutes,” Cramer told CNBC’s “Squawk Box. ”

Exactly one year ago, Lowe’s announced that Ellison would take over as CEO, effective July 2018, poaching him from the C-suite at J.C. Penney. Prior to J.C. Penny, he spent 12 years at Lowe’s rival Home Depot.

Lowe’s should be back to meeting Wall Street expectations by its third quarter, the “Mad Money” host said, echoing a similar prediction from Ellison.

Ellison said, in the company’s earnings news release, “We are still in the early stages of our transformation, and with the changes we are putting in place. We expect to deliver improved gross margin performance over the balance of the year.” He also said, “The unanticipated impact of the convergence of cost pressure, significant transition in our merchandising organization, and ineffective legacy pricing tools” as being behind the company’s missed earnings.

Most of these mistakes were brought over from past executives, Cramer said. “Marvin’s doing everything he has to do,” he added. “I think the hand he got wasn’t so great.”

Lowe’s shares were falling about 10% Wednesday, as higher costs weighed on its fiscal first-quarter earnings, which fell short of estimates, and prompted the home improvement retailer to cut its forecast for the year.

Achieving success and making tough decisions go hand in hand. So what’s the best way to make ethical decisions during tough times?

Billionaire Warren Buffett has a 'simple' test for making tough decisions—here's how it works

Achieving success and making tough decisions go hand in hand. So what’s the best way to make ethical decisions during tough times? That’s a question one student asked Warren Buffett at a 2005 Q&A session with Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. It all comes down to reputation, the billionaire told the audience. Integrity and ethics are essential for building a solid, positive reputation. They also indicate trust and adherence to high moral standards. “We have all the money we need,” Buffett said, referring to himself and Gates. “While we’d like to have more, we can afford to lose money. But we can’t afford to lose reputation. Not a shred.”

The ‘newspaper test’

One would imagine that it’s no easy task managing Berkshire Hathaway’s 360,000 employees and making sure that all managers are making ethical decisions. But Buffett has a smart strategy for this: “I ask the managers to judge every action they take — not just by legal standards, though obviously that’s the first test — but also by what I call the ‘newspaper test.'” If a manager expresses uncertainty, Buffett says he asks them how they “would feel about any given action if they know it was to be written up the next day in their local newspaper.” He tells them that the article would be “written by a smart but pretty unfriendly reporter” and read by their family, friends and neighbors. “It’s pretty simple,” he says. “If [the decision] passes that test, it’s okay. If anything is too close to the lines, it’s out.”

And being the great leader that he is, Buffett says his managers can call him if they want to check on something. “But if they do, there’s probably something wrong with them,” he jokes.

The ‘inner scorecard’

Ex-U.S. Navy officer: How to write emails with military precision and command

A vaguely written and poorly formatted email will most likely get lost in the shuffle or ignored (at least for a couple of days). So if you want to start writing strong emails that command attention, look no further than the U.S. military. For decades, the U.S. Air Force has relied on “The Tongue and Quill,” a manual on how to communicate efficiently. “Since returning from duty, I’ve applied these lessons to emails that I write for my corporate job,” Seghal wrote in an article published in Harva

A vaguely written and poorly formatted email will most likely get lost in the shuffle or ignored (at least for a couple of days). So if you want to start writing strong emails that command attention, look no further than the U.S. military.

For decades, the U.S. Air Force has relied on “The Tongue and Quill,” a manual on how to communicate efficiently. During his active duty service, Kabir Seghal, a U.S. Navy veteran and former vice president at J.P. Morgan, says the training helped him learn how to structure emails that maximized a mission’s chances of success.

“Since returning from duty, I’ve applied these lessons to emails that I write for my corporate job,” Seghal wrote in an article published in Harvard Business Review. “My missives have consequently become crisper and cleaner, eliciting quicker and higher-quality responses from colleagues and clients.”

Here are Seghal’s top lessons on writing emails with “military precision”:

Nine dead, including 5 children, in Brazil shooting; 17 others also shot

At least 17 other people, mostly children, were also shot at the Raul Brasil elementary school and taken to hospitals, police said in a written statement.

The state of their health was not immediately known. School shootings are rare in Brazil, even though the country is one of the world’s most violent, with more annual homicides than any other.

The last major school shooting was in 2011, when 12 children were shot dead by a former pupil in Rio de Janeiro.

While gun laws are extremely strict in Brazil, it is not difficult to illegally purchase a weapon.

Police said that two adolescents wearing face masks entered the building and started shooting at about 9:30 a.m. local time. The pair eventually shot and killed themselves.

Another shooting took place about 500 meters from the Raul Brasil school shortly before the killings at the school, but it was not yet clear if the two incidents were related.

About 1,000 children attend the school, police said.

Putin asked to take 'personal control' of legal case against jailed US investor

A Moscow-based private equity group has written an open letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin, urging him to intervene in the arrest of a U.S. citizen.

On February 15, the co-founder of Baring Vostok Michael Calvey, was detained along with five others in relation to the alleged theft of 2.5 billion Russian rubles ($38.3 million).

Now Baring has publicly beseeched Putin to “take personal control of the criminal case” against all six men who remain imprisoned, awaiting trial.

Addressing “Dear Vladimir Vladimirovich,” the letter said Putin’s involvement was needed “to ensure a comprehensive, independent and objective investigation of this criminal case.”

The online letter further explained that the arrests follow a dispute between Baring Vostok funds and Russian businessmen who are shareholders of Vostochny Bank.

Under the letter on the Baring Vostok website, there is an option for people to co-sign the appeal addressed to the Russian leader.

UK and US regulators build Brexit 'bridge' for derivatives

Britain and the United States said on Monday that their regulators are taking every step needed to ensure that trillions of dollars in derivatives contracts traded across the Atlantic will not be disrupted by any type of Brexit.

Derivatives are widely used by companies to hedge themselves against unexpected moves in borrowing costs or prices for raw materials.

“Market participants can be confident that the clearing and trading of derivatives between the UK and U.S. will maintain the high standards of today when the UK leaves the EU,” Bank of England Governor Mark Carney said in a statement.

Currently, derivatives trading in Britain conforms to rules written by the European Union, the trading bloc that the United Kingdom is due to leave on March 29.

U.S. and UK regulators told reporters on Monday that the trading and clearing of derivatives transactions in London and New York, two markets that dominate the global sector, would continue under a similar set of rules once Brexit takes place.

Social Security expansion bill poised to gain traction in Congress

Social Security expansion bill poised to gain traction in Congress

A recent poll conducted by The Senior Citizens League of its members explored what they thought the new Congress should focus on. Boosting Social Security benefits was cited by 42 percent, followed by reducing taxation of those benefits at 31 percent (reducing prescription drug prices came in third, at 18 percent).

“I think there’s a growing sense that something needs to be done,” said Mary Johnson, Social Security and Medicare policy analyst for the league. “It can take time to get legislation with many moving parts up and running, so you need to allow time to phase in changes.”

However, congressional Republicans typically have balked at the idea of expanding the program due to the associated higher taxes that would come with it, and past GOP proposals have advocated reducing benefits as a way to ease the program’s financial woes.

And, not everyone supports a program expansion.

“Expanding benefits could help low-income retirees, but middle and high-income workers would likely reduce their personal savings in response to higher expected Social Security benefits,” said Andrew Biggs a resident scholar of the American Enterprise Institute, according to written testimony presented at recent congressional hearing about retirement security. Biggs was a deputy commissioner of Social Security under President George W. Bush.

Biggs also said that while tax increases would eliminate shortfalls, higher taxes could increase borrowing and debt by low-income workers and reduce work and encourage tax evasion by higher earners, according to his written testimony.

While it’s not certain whether Larson’s bill would be able to clear the House in its present form anyway, a a Democrat-controlled House bodes well that it could progress.

However, as with most major pieces of legislation, it could go through various iterations before facing approval or rejection by the full House. And even if it made it through, the measure would also need approval from the Republican-dominated Senate, where priorities could be much different.

“If it gets through the House, and then goes to the Senate and doesn’t get brought up for debate or a vote, it’s going to be a 2020 election campaign issue,” Altman said.
