China and India will lead the world's nuclear power growth, experts say

India and China are set to drive the world’s nuclear power production growth as the two developing nations — among the top consumers of energy in the world — pursue their respective national nuclear energy programs.

According to the International Energy Agency, nuclear power production will grow by about 46 percent by 2040 — and more than 90 percent of the net increase will come from China and India.

Global nuclear electricity output grew 1 percent in 2017, as the world’s nuclear fleet generated 2,503 terawatt-hours (TWh) of electricity, according to the World Nuclear Industry Status Report 2018.

Take China out of the picture, however, and the reality looks starkly different: Global nuclear power generation would have declined for a third consecutive year, the report showed.

Asia, for its part, saw 8 to 9 percent growth in nuclear capacity last year, Agneta Rising, the director general of the World Nuclear Association, told CNBC at the Singapore International Energy Week conference last week.

“(The) largest growth in nuclear energy is in the Asia region, especially in China and India,” she said, adding that nuclear power is “absolutely compatible” and “necessary” for a low carbon future.

White House officials push back on the idea that trade deal with China is imminent

White House officials push back on the idea that trade deal with China is imminent

For a brief moment Friday, there was optimism in the market that the Trump administration was getting closer to a trade deal with China. But administration officials are telling CNBC that there is no indication of an imminent agreement.

On Friday, a report that said President Donald Trump had asked U.S. officials to prepare a draft trade agreement with China sent the market higher. Then, after it became clear that the reported progress might not materialize, the Dow went negative.

Three senior administration officials told CNBC on Friday that there is no indication of an imminent trade deal, despite some progress being made behind the scenes. Later Friday, Trump’s top economic advisor Larry Kudlow told CNBC’s “Halftime Report” that Trump had not asked his Cabinet to put together a draft trade deal.

Another senior official said that the president is preparing to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the upcoming G-20 summit in Argentina – and that includes discussing the potential terms of a deal. But that official cautioned against reading too much into the preparations, noting that there is a standing weekly interagency meeting on trade at the White House to discuss specific policies.

Some investors have stressed the need for caution, noting that the administration’s boasts of trade progress are coming just days before the midterm elections. The White House did not respond to a request for comment.

“I think it’s maybe temporary, because Tuesday is Election Day,” said Richard Bernstein, CEO of Richard Bernstein Advisors, Friday on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.” “We will see what happens Wednesday.”

For his part, the president has made a rhetorical turnaround regarding the trade talks. A week ago, Trump told a crowd at the White House that he had a message for Xi.

“They want to make a deal so badly. And I said, ‘You’re not ready yet. No, you’re not ready. No.'” Trump said he told Xi. “I told him, ‘You’re not ready.'” China has blamed the U.S. for escalating trade tensions,

But just a few days before Election Day, the president changed his tune — and it seemed to buoy the stock market right on schedule.

Just a day after Kudlow said that the administration has not engaged the Chinese in “intense talks lately,” Trump said Thursday that trade discussions “are moving along nicely.”

Investors hopeful for a trade deal are skeptical about the recent change in rhetoric, suggesting it could be heavy on politics and short on policy.

“In my opinion, will all due respect to the president, he’s talking up the stock market before the midterm elections,” said Howard Ward, chief investment officer of Gamco Investors.

“There have been no discussions taking place between China and the U.S.,” Ward said. “There will be no deal next month.”

For months, administration officials have said that talks with China were stalling. The president has maintained the country is not ready to come to the table. Just over two weeks ago, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross told CNBC that talks were on “hiatus.”

Ross also cast doubt on the idea that a deal could be advanced during talks at the G-20 summit this month.

“You can’t do a multi-thousand-page trade agreement in an hour,” he said at the time.

This week is not the first time that the market has risen on reports that the U.S. and China were nearing a deal. A similar situation played out over the summer. Ultimately, those talks came to nothing — with an official telling CNBC that there had been “zero” engagement between the two countries.

The off-and-on nature of the negotiating process has left a sour taste in the mouth of some investors.

“I challenge the White House to bring us a deal which we will then celebrate,” Ward said. “It’s not going to happen.”

The trade gambit comes as Trump has floated a number of other last-minute policy proposals that experts say are unlikely to come to pass, at least on the timeline the president has offered.

Trump said last month that his administration was working on a “resolution” that would cut taxes on the middle class by the midterm elections, despite lawmakers having left Washington. That resolution has yet to materialize.

He has also pledged to sign an executive order doing away with birthright citizenship for children of undocumented immigrants, which experts say would amount to a broad reinterpreting of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution — something that is outside of the president’s executive authority. Trump has said the issue will be resolved by the Supreme Court.

Choose these college majors if you want to be financially successful

In contrast, those who concentrated on arts and performing arts or liberal arts and humanities feel the least secure about their futures, the survey found.

Credit Karma’s survey, which was conducted in April, included more than 1,000 parents and students, ages 18 to 72.

Here’s why that scholarship might not be free after all

When it comes to financial aid for higher education, even “free” sources of money could leave you owing the IRS. Meanwhile, the average in-state tuition and fees for public four-year colleges is $9,970. But those free sources of financial aid may come with an unexpected price tag in the form of income tax. Generally, a scholarship that covers tuition and fees is tax-free. Here’s when you should be on the lookout for taxes connected to financial aid.

Here’s why that scholarship might not be free after all

When it comes to financial aid for higher education, even “free” sources of money could leave you owing the IRS.

Scholarships, fellowship grants and teaching assistantships are instrumental in helping families pay for college.

Consider that the average tuition and fees for full-time students attending a private four-year college during the 2017-2018 school year is $34,740, according to the College Board. Meanwhile, the average in-state tuition and fees for public four-year colleges is $9,970.

But those free sources of financial aid may come with an unexpected price tag in the form of income tax.

Generally, a scholarship that covers tuition and fees is tax-free. Money that covers room and board is not.

The difference isn’t always clear, however, particularly if stipends and teaching assistantships are involved.

“The problem you run into is when the school says, ‘We’re giving you $10,000 and calling it a scholarship,'” said Tim Steffen, director of advanced planning at Robert W. Baird & Co. in Milwaukee. “Just because the school says it’s tax-free, doesn’t mean it is.”

Here’s when you should be on the lookout for taxes connected to financial aid.

Is Mexico safe? Where to travel now

Is Mexico safe? Where to travel now

Mexico is a popular vacation destination with more than 40 million tourists visiting in 2017. But in the past year, various parts of the country have been besieged by gang violence, assaults, natural disasters and even reports of poisoned liquor.

On March 8, ahead of spring break season, the U.S. State Department issued a security alert for the popular resort spot Playa del Carmen after the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City received a security threat against the town.

The alert, which was later downgraded to include on five neighborhoods, came less than a month after an explosion on a tourist ferry in Playa del Carmen injured 24 people, including five Americans. And in December the U.S. Office of Inspector General opened an inquiry to investigate possibly tainted booze at all-inclusive resorts in Mexican resort towns like Playa Del Carmen and Cancun.

It’s all left travelers wondering if it is safe to travel to the country.

Experts say yes.

“The vast majority of destinations that tourists and travelers visit are safe,” says Zachary Rabinor, the President and CEO of Journey Mexico, a travel company with three offices in Mexico. “Like in the rest of the world, unsafe areas have more to do with local petty crime or if visitors engage in unsafe activities or visit unsafe establishments.”

Currently, as a country, Mexico’s threat level, according to the State Department, is a level two. That means tourists should “be aware of heightened risks to safety and security.” For context, the Bahamas are also rated a level two (due to crime like burglaries and robberies).

Five states in Mexico have a level four rating — Colima, Guerrero (where Acapulco is located), Michoacan, Sinaloa (where Mazatlan is located) and Tamaulipas (part of which borders Texas) — the same ranking as war zones like Afghanistan and Iraq. The State Department recommends that Americans should not travel to those locations due to “widespread violent crime.”

But as long as you’re not traveling to one of these areas, “there is no reason to do more than to be aware of the warnings and to exercise the normal degree of caution that should be done while traveling anywhere,” says Christopher Wilson, the deputy director of the Mexico Institute at the Wilson Center.

“Don’t drink the tap water, have a cab called for you instead of flagging one down on the street,” recommends Wilson.

Additionally, leave a detailed itinerary with family and friends that includes contact information for hotels and guides, says Rabinor. Also avoid wearing flashy or expensive jewelry that would make you stand out among a crowd.

Where to travel now

There are some great, safe places to go, say the experts.

La Paz, on the eastern side of Baja California Sur on the Sea of Cortez, is quickly becoming a well-known beach vacation destination, particularly for those fond of snorkeling and diving. Tour operators offer whale watching excursions, swimming with whale sharks (the largest fish in the world) or day trips to Isla Espíritu Santo where visitors can swim with the sea lions, snorkel over coral reefs and dive in artificial reefs made growing out of two sunken ships.

For recent graduates, their student loan debt may very well shape their choice job, career path and employer.

Over the last decade, college-loan balances in the United States have jumped to an all-time high of $1.4 trillion, according to a recent report by Experian. The average outstanding balance is $34,144, up 62 percent over the last 10 years.

Now, more employers are betting that student loan repayment programs will attract young, top talent burdened by all that debt.

To that end, Fidelity Investments announced Thursday it is introducing a Student Debt Employer Contribution program, which will let employers make after-tax contributions toward participants’ loans. The program, aimed at lessening the burden of student loan debt and increasing recruitment and retention, will begin later this year.

Drew University is slashing tuition by 20 percent

When it comes to college, rising costs are a seemingly unstoppable force. However, some schools are bucking the trend, slashing tuition in hopes of attracting more students and families struggling with the weight of a college tab. Most recently, Drew University, a New Jersey-based private college, announced it is lowering the price of its tuition by 20 percent, to $38,668 for 2018-2019 from $48,336 for 2017-2018. “We have to have our finger on the pulse of how students are making choices,” Drew

“We have to have our finger on the pulse of how students are making choices,” Drew President MaryAnn Baenninger said. “A lot of families will search based on published price, and if they are looking for private liberal arts colleges under $40,000, we don’t show up.”

In addition, even though college enrollment is on the rise, competition among schools for the top students is fierce. Schools like Drew are making a bet that the reduced costs will attract more student applicants, raising the overall bar for the school.

“Our goal now is to increase applications and accept students at the same rate,” Baenninger said.

College students may need their own renters insurance policies

Depending on the details of that policy, there can be gaps that leave you or your student at risk:Housing. A parent’s policy often extends coverage for students living in on-campus dorms, but may exclude a student living in an off-campus home or apartment, said Loretta Worters, a vice president for the Insurance Information Institute. Most policies cap coverage for “items stored off-premises,” which would include your child’s dorm-room contents, at 10 percent of the policy, said Orbann. Valuable

College students may need their own renters insurance policies

Yet it’s worth checking with your agent. Depending on the details of that policy, there can be gaps that leave you or your student at risk:

Housing. A parent’s policy often extends coverage for students living in on-campus dorms, but may exclude a student living in an off-campus home or apartment, said Loretta Worters, a vice president for the Insurance Information Institute. They’ll need their own policy to protect their possessions and provide liability coverage.

Possessions. Most policies cap coverage for “items stored off-premises,” which would include your child’s dorm-room contents, at 10 percent of the policy, said Orbann. Valuable items like electronics, collectibles and jewelry have even lower limits — and of course, those are the items more likely to be misplaced (what insurers dub “mysterious disappearance”) or stolen.

“The stuff students bring to college can add up pretty quickly,” she said.

This 'Freshman 15' could save you $300,000

How much to borrow for college 8:15 PM ET Mon, 1 May 2017 | 01:07

The “Freshman 15” is typically a warning to incoming college students about weight gain, yet the term could also serve as an aspiration — at least when it comes to course load.

College students who take fewer than 15 credits per semester during their freshman year are less likely to graduate within four years (i.e., on time), according to a new analysis from college consulting firm EAB. Its data shows 44 percent percent of incoming college students register for 12 to 14 credits.

EAB analyzed records of nearly 1.3 million full-time college freshmen at 137 institutions, for the period of summer 2011 through spring 2016.

The problem is simple math. Although 12 credits is typically the minimum required to attain full-time status and be eligible for financial aid, it’s not enough to meet graduation requirements for a bachelor degree within four years, said Ed Venit, senior director of strategic research for EAB.

As India and China face off in the mountains, a new confrontation is growing in the ocean

In the run-up to Malabar, Indian media reported a surge in Chinese naval vessels around the area, noting sightings of 13 to 14 units in two months. Those included Luyang III class destroyers, hydrographic research vessels, an intelligence-gathering ship and a submarine.

Beijing does operate in the area for its “Belt and Road” initiative, an infrastructure program that involves developing port facilities in the Indian Ocean with Pakistan and Sri Lanka. India isn’t a member of the initiative and has repeatedly indirectly criticized the program for violating Indian sovereignty.

“China’s naval presence in the Indian Ocean is showing signs of a qualitative shift,” Joshi said, noting the mainland’s growing patrols and the July 12 dispatch of Chinese troops to a military base in Djibouti — Beijing’s first long-term foreign military deployment in almost 60 years.

“This Chinese facility is not just a platform from which China can project initially modest power into the western Indian Ocean, but will also justify and support a greater volume and pace of other patrols through the eastern and central Indian Ocean,” Joshi added.

New Delhi is certainly paying close attention to those developments, as reflected by the Malabar drills.

“With over 20 ships, including two submarines and over 100 aircraft and helicopters involved in complex maneuvers, [India’s] strategic messaging to China seemed more than clear,” Abhijit Singh, head of the Maritime Policy Initiative at think tank Observer Research Foundation, wrote in a note.

“Indian commentators cast Malabar as a strategic precursor to a more proactive sea-denial strategy aimed at challenging People’s Liberation Army Navy ships in the Indian Ocean.”

The situation draws parallels with Beijing’s behavior in a different body of water. The world’s second-largest economy has been creating artificial islands in contested sections of the South China Sea. But unlike that international waterway, the Indian Ocean isn’t a site of overlapping sovereign rights, meaning Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s efforts to counter the mainland on his home turf may not be sustainable.

“There is something essentially flawed about the idea that Indian naval power can prevent Chinese warships and submarines from accessing India’s near-seas. Modern-day trading nations regard the oceans as a shared global common, with equal opportunity rights for all user states,” said Singh.
