Protests against Kazakhstan's presidential election lead to violence in the capital

Kazakhstan’s first president, Nursultan Nazarbayev, has stepped down after a nearly three-decade-long tenure.

His successor, Kassym Jomart-Tokayev, confirmed his position after taking nearly 71% of the vote in Sunday’s election against six other government-approved candidates, according to Foreign Policy. His closest opposition candidate trailed behind with 16.2%.

Though that may seem a sweeping victory for Jomart-Tokayev, the transfer of office has spurred unrest in the country’s capital Nur-Sultan and largest city Almaty.

About 500 protesters were arrested by police, the BBC reported, citing local officials. The demonstration, decrying what protests called a “dictatorship” in the country, is the largest Kazakhstan has seen in recent years.

As protest is not tolerated in the country, the demonstration led to violence in the streets. A BBC correspondent in Nur-Sultan reported people being dragged onto buses by riot police. Many journalists were also detained covering the protest, while social media platforms such as Facebook and Telegram were reportedly inaccessible in the country during that time.

Mortgage rates hit their highest point since last month in a 'threatening' move

Buying a home just got a little more expensive.

Mortgage rates, which loosely follow the 10-year Treasury, hit their highest level since the end of March, breaking out of a tight range where they had been sitting for weeks. The move came as bond yields surged higher.

While the increase won’t mean a lot in terms of the average monthly payment for a homebuyer, it could be signaling the start of another steady rise, which we saw at the start of this year.

“Rates are in the midst of a serious, threatening move higher,” wrote Matthew Graham, chief operating officer at Mortgage News Daily. The bond yield surge Thursday “brought additional confirmation of the end of the friendly springtime consolidation trend, and it took us one step closer to the highest yields in more than four years.”

As the average rate on the 30-year fixed moves past 4.6 percent, talk of 5 percent comes back into play, and that is an emotional barrier for both buyers and sellers.

Kroger to hire 11,000 supermarket workers, including 2,000 managers

Amid sweeping changes in the grocery industry, Kroger announced on Tuesday it is hiring for 11,000 new positions, including 2,000 management roles.

It is also investing $500 million in associate wages and training and development over the next three years.

As an example of the expected wage changes, Kroger cited a labor agreement it recently struck with its worker union in Cincinnati, the UFCW 75. Starting wages will be raised to at least $10 per hour for associates in the Cincinnati/Dayton area. After one year of service, associate wages will rise to $11 an hour.

Kroger has been trying to transform its company as the industry undergoes massive changes, pressured by Amazon’s acquisition of Whole Foods and changing consumer preferences. Several grocers, including Walmart, have realigned its workforce and resources to readjust to the need to focus more digital efforts, including delivery options.

One Kroger effort is the roll out of”Scan, Bag and Go,” a platform that allows shoppers to bypass a traditional cashier in paying for items, to 400 locations by the end of this year.

Advice on career goals, professional advancement: DBS CEO Piyush Gupta

“The way to do it is to look outside in, or long to short,” Piyush Gupta said in an episode of CNBC’s “Life Hacks Live.” “As you work back, you start getting a range of possibilities about the exposure and experience you need to have to qualify for the next thing,” said Gupta. “You can’t do everything at once, but you can do this in a planned way.

Advice on career goals, professional advancement: DBS CEO Piyush Gupta

“The way to do it is to look outside in, or long to short,” Piyush Gupta said in an episode of CNBC’s “Life Hacks Live.”

“If you say I want to be an entrepreneur at the age of 40, then there’s certain skills you need to make sure you acquire by the time you’re 30 or 35.”

Gupta advised thinking about the kind of job you’d ultimately like to have aged 40 or 50, and then working out the role you would need to be in and the skills you would need to develop to get there. He suggested doing that in increments of around five years.

“As you work back, you start getting a range of possibilities about the exposure and experience you need to have to qualify for the next thing,” said Gupta.

Those exposures and experiences can be “very disparate,” ranging from subject matter expertise to working across different geographies, he noted, and they can be incorporated at various stages.

“You can’t do everything at once, but you can do this in a planned way. You can be systematic about it and you can shape your own career.”

“It’s really more about what you need to develop in yourself over a period of time, more than exactly what role you want in a particular context.”

Cramer reviews the Dow’s 10 biggest losers during the sell-off

Cramer reviews the Dow's 10 biggest losers during the sell-off

Even in a gyrating market like this one, sometimes the bargains are right in front of you, CNBC’s Jim Cramer said on Friday as the major averages lifted from their lows.

“I don’t want to say that the pain is over, but you should certainly prepare for more days like today. Remember, we’ve seen this movie before. The last time the market got crushed like we’ve seen over the last week was in January of 2016,” the “Mad Money” host said. “It turned out to be an epic buying opportunity, as the market rallied 10,000 points over the next two years.”

As focused as Cramer was on finding good buys, he also wanted to get a better sense of the market layout.

“You need to be systematic with your bargain hunting, so … I want to go over the 10 biggest recent decliners in the Dow Jones Industrial average.”
