    Jeb Bush's love of Apple products has been widely documented, and the Republican presidential candidate continues to wear his Apple Watch on the campaign trail.

Somehow Bush managed to take a call without picking up his iPhone, and the sound of a person’s voice saying hello breaks through the meeting noise, to which Bush responds, “My watch can’t be talking.”

  • 10/27   UK to require employers to pay 20-30% of furloughed wage cost - The Times
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    The United Kingdom has drawn up plans to require employers to cover 20% to 30% of furloughed employees' wages from August to reduce the vast burden of the coronavirus crisis on government finances, The Times newspaper reported.  The United Kingdom on May 12 extended its job retention scheme - the centrepiece of its attempts to cushion the coronavirus hit to the economy - by four months but told employers they would have to help to meet its huge cost from August.  'The Treasury has drawn up plans that would require employers to cover between 20 and 30 per cent of people’s wages,' The Times said.

  • 12/27   U.K., Australia, Canada ‘Deeply Concerned’: Hong Kong Update
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- The foreign ministers of the U.K., Australia and Canada said they were “deeply concerned” by China’s plan to enact sweeping national security legislation in Hong Kong, while U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo called the proposal “disastrous” and urged Beijing to reconsider.The comments came as Hong Kong braced for fresh demonstrations heading into the weekend after China announced its intentions to enact a law to prevent and punish any acts of secession, subversion or terrorism in the city that threaten national security. Pro-democracy activists say the move endangers the future of “one country, two systems,” the principle by which the Asian financial hub is overseen by Beijing.Chief Executive Carrie Lam said earlier Friday that the city would fully cooperate with China to enact the legislation.Her comments are likely to anger demonstrators and fuel protests that have resurged in recent weeks following months of disruption leveled by the coronavirus. Already, demonstrators have called for rallies against Beijing-backed legislation, including a bill that would criminalize disrespecting China’s national anthem, on Sunday and Wednesday.Key Developments:U.K., Australia and Canada have “deep concern” over planPompeo condemns China’s plan to impose legislationBiden says U.S. “should not remain silent”U.K. says China must respect city’s freedomsLam offers full cooperation on security lawChina says no country has right to interfere in Hong KongHere’s the latest (all times local):Law Is ‘Anti-Virus’ Software for City: People’s Daily (Saturday 7:35 a.m.)China’s proposed security law for Hong Kong was “anti-virus software” for the city to enhance law and order, and to build a stable foundation for the principle of one country, two systems, the Communist Party-owned People’s Daily said in an online commentary on Saturday.The anti-extradition bill movement responsible for protests in the city was the cause of the National People’s Congress introducing the security-law legislation, it said.U.K. Australia, Canada Foreign Ministers express concern (11:45 p.m.)“Making such a law on Hong Kong’s behalf without the direct participation of its people, legislature or judiciary would clearly undermine the principle of ‘one country, two systems’, under which Hong Kong is guaranteed a high degree of autonomy,” according to joint statement from U.K. Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, Australian Foreign Minister Marise Payne and Canadian Foreign Minister François-Philippe Champagne.The U.K., Australia and Canada are “deeply concerned” at China’s proposals for introducing the legislation.Hassett warns of capital flight if laws enacted (10:39 a.m.)White House economic adviser Kevin Hassett called China’s move “very unacceptable to the U.S. government” and predicted it would backfire on Beijing.“They’re going to see a lot of economic harm from what they’re doing, because if I had capital to invest, would you really want to invest it in a place where they’re basically, you know, sneering at the rule of law the way they are right now?” he said Friday in an interview on Fox Business Network.“I would expect that they’re going to have serious capital flight problems in Hong Kong, if they follow through this, they will no longer be the financial center of Asia, and that they themselves will pay very, very heavy costs,” he added.China must respect Hong Kong’s freedoms, U.K. says (9:23 p.m.)Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman said the British government wants to clarify exactly what China has proposed -- but warned it expects Beijing to respect the autonomy Hong Kong is due.“We expect China to respect Hong Kong’s rights and freedoms and high degree of autonomy,” Johnson’s spokesman James Slack told reporters. The U.K. remains committed to upholding Hong Kong’s autonomy under the joint declaration, Slack said.The U.K. has previously said there will need to be a reassessment of relations with China in the aftermath of the coronavirus outbreak. On Friday, the government unveiled a plan to diversify supply chains, potentially reducing Britain’s reliance on China for some medical materials.Lam says law will help stop local terrorism (9 p.m.)The legislation wouldn’t affect capitalism and could bolster business confidence in Hong Kong, Lam said during an evening news briefing in the city. Wearing a face mask to protect against the virus, she said citizens should view the law “positively” and said there was urgent need for the measure.“The enforcement of national security legislation won’t affect Hong Kong’s capitalism and the law will also protect foreign investors’ interests in H.K.,” she said. “The legislation will also help Hong Kong to effectively nip local terrorism that may jeopardize national security in the bud and make Hong Kong a safer and more stable city.”Biden says U.S. should condemn China over Hong Kong (8:59 p.m.)Likely Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said the U.S. should be pushing world powers to condemn China over its moves to take greater control of Hong Kong. In an interview with CNBC, he said the U.S. silence on Hong Kong has been “devastating.”“We should not remain silent,” Biden said. “We should be calling the rest of the world to condemn their actions.”Read more:How China Pounced on Hong Kong While Covid Overwhelmed the WorldCornered China Dares Trump to Hit Back With Hong Kong Power GrabHong Kong Activists Urge Protests Against New China Security LawHong Kong’s Pro-Democracy Businesses Show $13 Billion PotentialU.S. condemns China’s plan to impose legislation on Hong Kong (8:30 p.m.)The U.S. condemns China’s “proposal to unilaterally and arbitrarily impose national security legislation on Hong Kong,” Secretary of State Michael Pompeo said in an emailed statement. “The United States strongly urges Beijing to reconsider its disastrous proposal.”“The decision to bypass Hong Kong’s well-established legislative processes and ignore the will of the people of Hong Kong would be a death knell for the high degree of autonomy Beijing promised for Hong Kong under the Sino-British Joint Declaration, a UN-filed agreement,” the statement said.President Donald Trump had earlier warned that the U.S. would respond to the planned move in Beijing, amid escalating tensions between the two powers. “I don’t know what it is because nobody knows yet,” he told reporters at the White House about the possible Chinese actions. “If it happens, we’ll address that issue very strongly.”Activist Joshua Wong calls on international community (7:28 p.m.)Wong, one of the city’s most prominent activists, distributed fliers with a group of others outside the Hung Hom train station in Kowloon during the Friday evening rush hour. “We urge China to withdraw the evil bill,” he said, adding that it was “eroding the fundamental freedom of Hong Kongers.”Wong called on the global community to stand with the financial hub and said it was “time” for the U.S. to implement the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act.HKMA says it’ll maintain HKD stability (6:55 p.m.)The Hong Kong Monetary Authority -- the city’s de facto central bank -- “will maintain HKD exchange rate stability in accordance with the Linked Exchange Rate System,” a spokeswoman said in an emailed statement. The HKMA will continue to monitor market developments, the statement said.Security laws endanger Hong Kong’s international status, Taiwan says (4:13 p.m.)Laws that harm democracy, human rights and Hong Kong’s freedom under the guise of national security will increase societal instability and heighten risks for international citizens in the city, Taiwan’s Mainland Affairs Council said in an emailed statement. It urged authorities to prevent greater chaos in Hong Kong and not make the “wrong decision.”‘No country has the right’ (3:49 p.m.)Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian held a regular daily news conference in Beijing, saying that national security in Hong Kong was “purely” an internal affair. “No country has the right to interfere,” he said.“National security is the bedrock for a country’s survival and development,” Zhao added. “No country will allow separatist activities and other activities endangering national security on its territory.”The foreign ministry’s office in Hong Kong earlier issued a separate statement saying the security legislation would target only a small number of people who are endangering national security. It also said it hoped international society would hold a “fair and objective” view of the NPC’s decision.Japan stresses ‘one country, two systems’ (3:01 p.m.)“Hong Kong is an extremely important partner for our country, with close economic ties and exchange of people,” Japanese Foreign Minister Toshimitsu Motegi said Friday afternoon. “It is very important for Hong Kong to prosper stably on the basis of ‘one country, two systems.’ I want to emphasize this again.”Lam offers China full cooperation (2:59 p.m.)Hong Kong authorities will fully cooperate with the NPC’s Standing Committee to complete relevant legislation for national security as soon as possible, Lam said in a statement.The government supports the NPC’s resolution to introduce the new national security law in the city as it “is facing an increasingly severe national security situation, and because legislative bodies in Hong Kong can hardly complete national security legislation on its own for a foreseeable amount of time,” she said.Lam added this would ensure the long-term prosperity and stability of Hong Kong under “one country, two systems.” She reiterated that safeguarding national security was the city’s constitutional responsibility.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

  • 20/27   Virus cases drop to zero in China but surge in Latin America
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    The coronavirus pandemic continued to drop in much of Asia on Saturday even as the outbreak surged in Latin America, as the world grappled with balancing the urge to restart economies with fears about health risks.  China, where the outbreak began late last year, reported no new confirmed cases for the first time.  In South Korea, there were 23 fresh infections, mostly from the densely populated Seoul area where authorities shut down thousands of nightclubs, bars and karaoke rooms to stem transmissions.

  • 22/27   Virus-hit Hertz declares bankruptcy in US and Canada
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    Global car rental company Hertz became the latest economic casualty of the coronavirus pandemic Friday, filing for bankruptcy in the US and Canada after more than a century in business.  'The impact of COVID-19 on travel demand was sudden and dramatic, causing an abrupt decline in the Company's revenue and future bookings,' Hertz said in a press release.  Hertz said it took 'immediate action' to prioritize the health and safety of employees and customers and eliminate 'all non-essential spending'.

  • 23/27   Coronavirus and debt push Hertz to file for bankruptcy protection
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    Hertz has filed for bankruptcy protection, unable to withstand the coronavirus pandemic that has crippled global travel and, with it, the heavily indebted 102-year-old car rental company's business. The Estero, Florida-based company's lenders were unwilling to grant it another extension on its auto lease debt payments past a Friday deadline, triggering the filing in US Bankruptcy Court in Delaware. Hertz and its subsidiaries will continue to operate, according to a release from the company. Hertz's principal international operating regions and franchised locations are not included in the filing, the statement said. By the end of March, Hertz Global Holdings had racked up more than $24 billion (£19.7 billion) in debt, according to the bankruptcy filing, with only $1 billion of available cash. Starting in mid-March, the company - whose car-rental bands also include Dollar and Thrifty - lost all revenue when travel shut down due to coronavirus. The company made "significant efforts" but couldn't raise money on the capital markets, so it started missing payments to creditors in April, the filing said. Hertz has also been plagued by management upheaval, naming its fourth chief executive in six years on May 18. "No business is built for zero revenue," former chief executive Kathryn Marinello said on the company's first-quarter earnings conference call on May 12. "There's only so long that companies' reserves will carry them." In late March, Hertz shed 12,000 workers and put another 4,000 on furlough, cut vehicle acquisitions by 90 per cent and stopped all non-essential spending. The company said the moves would save $2.5 billion per year. But the cuts came too late to save Hertz, the nation's No.2 auto-rental company founded in 1918 by Walter L. Jacobs, who started in Chicago with a fleet of a dozen Ford Model Ts. Mr Jacobs sold the company, initially called Rent-A-Car, to John D. Hertz in 1923. In a note to investors in late April, Jefferies analyst Hamzah Mazari predicted that rival Avis would survive the coronavirus crisis but Hertz had only a 50-50 chance "given it was slower to cut costs". On May 18, Hertz named operations chief Paul Stone as chief executive and announced that Ms Marinello would step down as chief executive and from the company's board. Mr Mazari called the step unusual just days before a potential bankruptcy filing. He also noted that chief executive changes have been common at Hertz since financier Carl Icahn entered the company in 2014. Mr Icahn's holding company is Hertz's largest shareholder, with a 38.9 per cent stake in the company, according to FactSet. Deutsche Bank analyst Chris Woronka credited Ms Marinello with reigniting Hertz's revenue growth, writing in a note to investors that it rose 16 per cent in 2018 and 2019 combined. Hertz's bankruptcy protection filing was hardly a surprise. In its first-quarter report filed earlier in May with securities regulators, the company said it may not be able to repay or refinance debt and may not have enough cash to keep operating. "Management has concluded there is substantial doubt regarding the company's ability to continue as a going concern within one year from the issuance date of this quarterly report," it said. Under a Chapter 11 restructuring, creditors will have to settle for less than full repayment. Its biggest creditors are banks, but the filing lists IBM, Lyft, United and Southwest Airlines as others owed between $6 million and $23 million each. Hertz isn't the first struggling company to be pushed into bankruptcy by the coronavirus crisis. The company joins department store chain J.C. Penney, as well as Neiman Marcus, J.Crew and Stage Stores.

  • 27/27   Some European Bond Investors May Want to Skip Next Week
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- After a strong week for Italian bonds investors may wish they could fast forward to early June, when analysts expect the next major wave of good news for the assets.The bonds just delivered their best weekly returns in two months after Germany and France backed a 500 billion-euro ($545 billion) aid package. Yet spreads against German peers could widen, because the pace of debt sales is exceeding the current rate of ECB bond purchases, according to Citigroup Inc.That leaves all eyes turning to the June 4 ECB meeting. Speculation is mounting that asset purchases will increase, after Chief Economist Philip Lane said the central bank must be ready to adjust its tools if necessary, according to the account of its April meeting released on Friday.“This is a clear indication that the Pandemic Emergency Purchase Program could be topped up in June, if needed,” said Martin van Vliet, a rates strategist at Robeco in Rotterdam, who expects the ECB to raise bond-buying by 500 billion euros. “Anything short of that would likely disappoint market expectations.”In the meantime, the week ahead includes ECB President Christine Lagarde taking part in a Twitter Q&A. There are also debt sales from Germany, Italy and the Netherlands, as well as euro area flash inflation numbers. The European Commission is also expected to present its proposal for a recovery fund on Wednesday.“The symbolism of a step toward the euro having some fiscal authority is the overwhelming factor for now,” wrote strategists at Mizuho International Plc including Peter Chatwell. Such a move would transfer some of the burden of funding the recovery across all EU members.Scheduled euro-area bond sales from Germany, Italy and the Netherlands are set to total around 24 billion euros for the week, according to Michael Leister, a rates strategist Commerzbank AG, who adds that “the door for syndications remains open.” France pays 25.5 billion euros of redemptions and coupons on Monday.
