Theresa May has said she will quit as Conservative leader on June 7th, paving the way for a contest to decide a new prime minister. In an emotional statement in Downing Street, May said she had “done my best” to honour the 2016 EU referendum result. It would remain a matter of “deep regret” that she had been unable to deliver Brexit, she added. But a new PM was “in the best interests of the country”. May said she will continue to serve as prime minister while a Conservative leadership contest takes place. She will step down as Tory leader on June 7th and a leadership contest is due to begin the following week.

Some of the world’s biggest footwear firms are urging Donald Trump to end the US trade war with China, warning of a “catastrophic” effect on consumers. A letter signed by 173 companies, including Nike and Adidas, says the president’s decision to raise import tariffs to 25% will disproportionately affect the working class. They also warn that higher levies threaten the future of some businesses. Trump maintains that trade deficit will China hurts the US economy. The US president increased levies on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports into the US from 10% to 25% more than a week ago after Washington and Beijing failed to reach a deal on trade.

 

In other news,

 

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has won resounding support in last week’s mid-term elections. Wednesday’s official results show his allies now control the senate which so far has served as a check on some of his more controversial policies. The win gives him sweeping power to push his agenda including constitutional changes and reintroducing the death penalty. The election has also cemented his family members in the political elite. Despite criticism from rights groups over his brutal drug war, the president remains hugely popular across the Philippines.

The US has more than doubled tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese products, in a sharp escalation of the countries’ damaging trade war. Tariffs on affected Chinese goods have risen to 25% from 10%, and Beijing has vowed to retaliate. China says it “deeply regrets” the move and will have to take “necessary counter-measures.” It comes as high-level officials from both sides are attempting to salvage a trade deal in Washington.

Attention current sophomores and juniors.

 

Have you ever yearned for the opportunity to manage your own stock portfolio?

Have you ever dreamed of trading on world markets?

Have you ever wondered what it must be like to work in canyons of Wall Street?

Well, next year Ephrata High School will initiate a new club called The Investment Club.

The Investment Club will be made up of Ephrata students who will manage a real $30,000 portfolio.

That’s right — $30,000.

 

The Ephrata Area Education Foundation has donated $30,000 to the new Investment Club.

Members of the club will research stocks, make buy and sell recommendations to the investment board, and vote on the purchase of shares.

An informational meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 15th.  The meeting will be held in Mr. Hagen’s room (208) at 2:40.

Hope to see you there.
