Основные фондовые индексы Европы торгуются смешанно

Европейские рынки были смешанными в среду утром, так как инвесторы продолжали следить за текущей политической неопределенностью. Сводный европейский индекс Stoxx 600 практически не изменился во время утренних сделок, с секторами и крупными биржами, торгующимися в противоположных направлениях. В Европе акции сектора основных ресурсов были худшими исполнителями в среду, снизившись примерно на 0,5 процента. Южноафриканская фирма Mondi сообщила, что базовая прибыль в третьем квартале выросла на 8 процентов, сославшись на более высокие, чем ожидалось, средние отпускные цены. Тем не менее, компания, зарегистрированная в Йоханнесбурге, заявила, что ее годовая производительность должна быть чуть ниже ожиданий рынка. Ее акции упали почти на 7 процентов. Акции немецкой компании по переработке пищевых продуктов GEA Group выросли на 6,8 процента, достигнув максимума за шесть месяцев. Хедж-фонд Elliot раскрыл свою долю в фирме во вторник, сообщает Reuters, что отправило акции вверх. Provident Financial упала до нижней части индекса в среду после того, как Barclays снизил рейтинг акций до «недостаточного веса» с «равного веса». Ее акции упали более чем на 5 процентов. Испанское правительство встречается в Мадриде в среду, чтобы поддержать свой ответ на каталонское движение за независимость. Лидер Социалистической оппозиции Педро Санчес также собирается встретиться с премьер-министром Мариано Рахоем. Испанский IBEX оправился от потерь, которые он получил на предыдущей сессии, и торговался с повышением более чем на 1,2 процента в утренних сделках. Каталонский президент Карлес Пучдемон и другие лидеры в регионе вчера подписали документ, провозглашающий независимость от Испании, хотя они также приостановили движение на ближайшие недели после неофициального референдума в начале этого месяца, что привело к беспорядкам и потере деловой уверенности в регионе. Между тем, премьер-министр Великобритании Тереза ​​Мэй впервые встретится с лидером оппозиции Джереми Корбином по вопросам премьер-министра в парламенте в первый раз в этой сессии. Во вторник, Мэй заявила, что соглашение с Европейским союзом о защите прав эмигрантов, проживающих в стране, после Брекзита, было «очень близким». Лидер национальной шотландской партии Никола Стерджон заявил на конференции партии во вторник, что Брекзит укрепил доводы для второго референдума о независимости.

Donald Trump's Budget Betrays His Pledge Not To Cut Social Security

A summary table indicates the Trump budget would cut disability insurance by $72 billion over 10 years, or about 4 percent of the program’s projected cost. “It’s my absolute intention to leave Social Security the way it is,” Trump said during the presidential campaign, a promise he repeated several times. Nancy Altman, president of Social Security Works, a nonprofit that advocates for expanding Social Security benefits across the board, said in a statement on Sunday that the budget amounts to “a flagrant violation” of Trump’s campaign pledge. The budget would make significantly larger cuts to Medicaid, which Trump also promised not to cut at various junctures on the campaign trail. Trump already broke that promise, however, by backing Republicans’ Obamacare repeal bill, which would cut over $800 billion from the program over a 10-year period. Mick Mulvaney, the director of Trump’s Office of Management and Budget, said that cutting disability insurance doesn’t break Trump’s campaign promise because most people think only of retirement insurance when they think of Social Security. “If you ask 999 people out of 1,000, [they] would tell you that Social Security disability is not part of Social Security,” Mulvaney said on Mondy. “It’s old-age retirement that they think of when they think of Social Security.” Mulvaney reiterated that defense at a press conference on Tuesday, claiming the president had only promised not to change Social Security’s retirement program. “Not a single thing in here touches Social Security retirement or Medicare,” he said. Social Security may be better known for retirement insurance, but it’s a little odd for a top government official to cite public misperception to argue that a program called “Social Security Disability Insurance” ― a program that is run by the Social Security Administration ― is not actually part of Social Security. “That is analogous to saying cuts to the Marines are not cuts to our military budget,” Social Security Works president Nancy Altman said Monday.   “Disability insurance is an essential component of the protections workers earn when they contribute to Social Security with every paycheck,” Altman added. “This budget is an utter betrayal of the voters who believed Trump’s repeated promises.” More than 10 million Americans receive Social Security Disability Insurance. Monthly benefits average about $1,000. People become eligible for the program after working for years and suffering a debilitating medical condition or injury. Although Republicans claim that the disability rolls are swollen with malingerers, only about 28 percent of people are awarded benefits when they first apply, and appeals can take years. The Social Security Administration inspector general testified to Congress in 2014 that the program has less than a 1 percent fraud rate. The budget would reduce disability spending primarily by testing new ways of enticing disabled workers back into the labor force. Bob Greenstein, director of the liberal Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, said similar efforts in the past “have consistently shown limited results or proved not cost-effective.” That has not stopped Mulvaney from claiming that the spending reductions the White House is seeking would only remove people from the program who are not truly disabled. Pressed on how the budget would filter them out, Mulvaney said one method would be to apply greater scrutiny to the administrative law judges who award benefits. Although they are part of the same social insurance program, Social Security Disability Insurance pays out benefits from a trust fund that is formally independent from the fund used for retirement and survivors benefits. Since many members of the massive baby boomer generation are becoming disabled before they’re old enough to receive retirement benefits, the disability fund faces more immediate financial challenges than the program as a whole. In October 2015, a budget deal in Congress diverted some revenue from the retirement insurance trust fund to avert a near-imminent funding gap. If Congress fails to act, the program will again face a shortfall in 2022. Most of the proposals in Trump’s budget are unlikely to become law. Presidential budgets are generally position statements for Congress to consider when it sets spending levels each year. Mulvaney has been very open about his desire to get Trump to consider cutting Social Security. Mulvaney hinted in April that the White House would specifically target the disability program, which he claimed had become a “permanent unemployment program.” Republicans in Congress have said they hope Trump comes around to the idea of cutting Social Security, which they have long believed is too generous.

How Tobacco Companies Led A Devastating 50-Year Infiltration Into Black Communities

Lincoln Mondy's asthma is probably the only reason why he's never smoked a cigarette. Doctors warned his parents about the dangerous effects their smoking habit could have on their son, but it was almost impossible to stop because in Farmersville, Texas, "tobacco is everything," according to Mondy. At the age of 14, Mondy took matters into his own hands when he made a PowerPoint presentation for his mom, whom he lived with, which warned her about tobacco's adverse effects. With the support of Mondy and other family members, his mother eventually quit smoking by the time he was 15. But getting his father to quit was a different beast to tackle. "My black family all smoked menthol," Mondy, who is biracial, told The Huffington Post about a pattern he noticed on his paternal family's side. "Like why do they smoke menthol but my white side dips and smokes cigarettes that aren’t menthol?" Menthol is a flavoring additive that makes it easier to inhale smoke which makes it more addictive than non-menthol cigarettes, according to the Center for Disease Control. More than 70 percent of black smokers prefer menthol, as shown in the infographics (above and below) by the African American Tobacco Control Leadership Council. After learning that black people are more likely to die from smoking-related diseases than whites, Mondy realized his father's affinity for menthol wasn't a coincidence. The now 22-year-old senior at George Washington University, started to research the campaigns big tobacco companies used to target black communities for his film project,"Black Lives/Black Lungs." The film was published in March in conjunction with Truth Initiative, and he found some very disturbing facts. Check out "Black Lives/Black Lungs" in the video below and keep scrolling to continue the story. Mondy searched for keywords within the Truth Tobacco Industry Documents database like "ethnic," "ghetto," "lower income" and "negro." He found countless documents that outlined tobacco companies' strategies in its campaigns which were aimed specifically at black people. He said the latter three search terms yielded results that surprised him, but it was a document from Lorlliard Tobacco that said "negroes" smoke menthol to "mask a real/mythical odor," which he said disturbed him the most. "They started really seeing [that] saying menthols would make people think 'fresh breath,'" Mondy said of his findings. "So in like the '60s they started targeting on that. They really started going really hard on 'hey, smoke this, it’s healthier, fresh breath, minty,' those kind of buzz words that would make people feel like its healthier than a regular cigarette." In addition to the language used in advertisements, these tobacco companies would buy a disproportionate amount of ad space in black publications like Ebony, Jet and Essence in comparison to mainstream magazines like Life, Vanity Fair and Elle. In 1962, Ebony carried twice as many cigarette ad pages as Life. These ads showed black men and women with cool and even empowering demeanors as they held a cigarette. Many tobacco companies were ordered in 2014 by U.S. District Judge Gladys Kessler to run corrective statements in many publications about their overall misleading messages about the negative health effects of smoking in ads, but black media outlets were completely ignored. Mondy also found that businessmen from tobaccos companies would take "ethnic field trips" to neighborhoods highly populated with black people in the '60s where they would stay for hours and give away menthol cigarettes.  "You're getting them hooked for free," Mondy said of the these "disturbing" marketing tactics by the tobacco companies. “So they'd go and take really impressive research to kind of pinpoint the culture and see what people like, what people don't like. And then, maybe like three months later, after that one ethnic field trip, there'd be an ad targeted specifically to that population." Phillip Gardiner, public health activist and co-chair of the African American Tobacco Control Leadership Council, wrote in his 2002 study "The African Americanization of menthol cigarette use in the United States" -- which Mondy refers to often in his research -- that tobacco companies saw the distinct traits of the black community, philanthropy included, and adjusted their marketing accordingly to build the community's trust: "Because the industry was based in the South, and the majority of black people lived and worked in the South, even as many migrated to urban centers, it was to the advantage of the tobacco industry to develop a strategic relationship with the African-American community. Moreover, the tobacco industry was one of the first major corporate employers to hire and promote African-Americans, not just in the processing of tobacco but also as executives (Gardiner, 2001; Robinson & Sutton, 1994)." Mondy called the tobacco industry's infiltration into the black community "strategic." Tobacco companies like Altria have donated millions of dollars to black institutions -- including the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, historically black colleges and universities, and the NAACP -- over the years. In 2014, Altria donated one million dollars to the Smithsonian National Museum of African-American History and Culture which opens this year. Mondy said these institutions would risk vital funding which could ultimately help them to have a positive impact on the black community if they spoke up against the tobacco companies. "They have no choice," he told HuffPost. "In the '70s when the NAACP needed funding for meetings, the tobacco industry was there, no one else was there. The tobacco industry was there to give money to them so they couldn’t say smoking is bad." Today, menthol is the only tobacco additive that is not banned, despite a 2009 law which banned other flavor additives like cherry and bubblegum. Yet, as shown in the graphic below, the Tobacco Control Legal Consortium found that if menthol was banned that 44.5 percent of black smokers would quit smoking tobacco. Mondy said he believes the reason it hasn't been banned is due to political reasons -- Lorillard, the company which produces Newports, has donated to more than half of the black democrats in Congress compared to just under 3 percent of non-black Democrats in 2014.  In 2015, Lorillard, whose sales depended on menthols for roughly 85 percent of sales the year prior, merged with Reynolds American Inc. -- the company that owns R.J, Reynolds Tobacco Company. Jacob McConnico, a spokesperson for the R.J, Reynolds Tobacco Company, provided a statement to HuffPost in regards to claims about marketing practices that specifically targeted the black community in the past few decades and today: "I am not able to provide any insight to claims related to alleged marketing activities of up to 50 years ago. I can tell you, as it relates to our marketing today, our marketing efforts are designed to reach a wide and diverse audience of adult tobacco consumers. Those efforts are designed to include elements of interest for all adult smokers, regardless of their ethnicity or gender. Adult African-Americans, Hispanics, and other minorities have the same ability and right as the rest of the population to evaluate and make informed decisions about whether or not they want to use tobacco or any other consumer product. It would not be appropriate to exclude minority audiences or media from our brand communications." Steve Callahan, a representative for Altria Client Services, the company which owns Philip Morris USA brands such as Marlboro, Virginia Slims, among others, also said that he couldn't speak on marketing campaigns from the past in a statement to HuffPost. He said there has been tighter regulation on tobacco companies due to the 1998 Master Settlement Agreement which changed the way brands market tobacco and the 2009 Tobacco Control Act in which the Food and Drug Administration began regulating the manufacture, distribution and marketing of these products.  Also, Callahan said to HuffPost that Philip Morris USA is "committed to marketing our products responsibly by building relationships between our brands and adult smokers while taking steps designed to limit reach to unintended audiences." He added, "Philip Morris USA markets its menthol cigarette brands using the same marketing approaches it uses for its non-menthol cigarette brands." Advocates like Gardiner, however, aren't convinced that tobacco companies shouldn't be held accountable. "The bottom line is that African-Americans prefer menthol cigarettes because the tobacco industry pushed these products on and created the demand among this population," Gardiner wrote in his study. "Did the industry do this on purpose? The answer to this question is an unequivocal yes." Despite tobacco's deep impact on the black community, Mondy said he's using his "Black Lives/Black Lungs" project as a vehicle of hope. With the help of Truth Initiative, he plans on interviewing key players in the fight to ban menthol and turn his findings into a documentary which he intends to premiere this summer. His efforts aren't to shame smokers because quitting tobacco can be a hard feat, especially, if a person may have smoked his or her entire life. Instead, he said he wants to educate people on the issue. Mondy's approach to informing others has even made his father take quitting more seriously. He said his dad texted him in February to tell him that he had gone 30 days without smoking a cigarette, the longest in Mondy's lifetime. "This is like so engorged into our community," he said. "I think it’s important to equip people with the education and information and so like, I’m not going around saying 'smoking is bad, stop smoking.'" Instead, Mondy said he hopes the research he provides will lead people to make an informed decision on whether they want to quit smoking or "keep buying from these companies that benefit from black death."
