Hong Kong's Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd's <0293.HK> decision to force pilots permanently onto lower-paid contracts or risk losing their jobs is "draconian" and "short-sighted", the head of the union representing them said on Friday. The carrier on Wednesday announced plans to cut 5,900 jobs to help it weather the pandemic, including nearly all of the positions at its regional airline Cathay Dragon, which it has shut down. At rival Singapore Airlines Ltd <SIAL.SI>, pilots have agreed to pay cuts, including up to 28.5% for most captains and up to 18.5% for most first officers through March 31, 2022 to avoid more job losses.

Late Thursday, Palestinian militants fired two rockets into Israel.
(Bloomberg) -- Oil headed for a modest weekly decline as fresh optimism that a U.S. stimulus deal is imminent was overshadowed by the threat a resurgent coronavirus poses to energy demand in Europe and the U.S.Futures in New York edged lower toward $40 a barrel after gaining 1.5% on Thursday. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin are “just about there” on a deal for a coronavirus relief package, even though Republican opposition in the Senate still poses a hurdle.Prices were also buoyed after President Vladimir Putin said that Russia is ready to extend output curbs if needed. The comments are the latest sign the OPEC+ alliance may delay January’s planned taper of production cuts.There are growing indications a second wave of the virus may throw the energy demand recovery in Europe and the U.S. into reverse. Cases jumped by a record in France on Thursday and toll road use in the nation posted the biggest year-on-year drop last week since July. Gasoline stockpiles in the U.S., where infections are spiking in some states, rose by the most since May.“An oil price stuck in the low $40s is signaling caution about adding to supply at this time of growing volumes from a country like Libya,” said Victor Shum, vice president of energy consulting at IHS Markit. Market sentiment is turning against the prospect of the planned production increase from OPEC+, he said.In another troubling sign for consumption, Peter Vanacker, the chief executive officer of Finnish refiner Neste Oyj, said that oil processors need to cut more capacity, especially in Europe, as demand drops. Australia & New Zealand Banking Group Ltd. cut its forecast for oil consumption this quarter, citing the resurgent outbreak in Europe and North America.While Putin didn’t rule out a change, he said his preference was to stick to OPEC+’s current plan to lift crude output by nearly 2 million barrels a day in January. The group is set to make a decision at a meeting on Nov. 30-Dec. 1.Brent’s three-month timespread was 87 cents a barrel in contango - where prompt prices are cheaper than later-dated ones - compared with $2.17 at the end of last month. The change in the market structure indicates concerns about over-supply have eased somewhat.See also: Trump Seizes On Biden Oil Comment to Warn Swing State Voters Meanwhile, Democratic candidate Joe Biden said he would stop giving the oil industry federal subsidies, in the last presidential debate before the U.S. election on Nov. 3. Biden also reiterated that he would ban fracking on federal land and said he would help the energy industry transition to more renewables over time.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.
U.S. officials said that Russian hackers have targeted the networks of dozens of state and local governments in the United States in recent days, stealing data from at least two servers. The advisory from the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security's cybersecurity agency describes an onslaught of recent activity by a Russian state-sponsored hacking group against a broad range of networks, some of which were successfully compromised. The alert released Thursday functions as a reminder of Russia's potent capabilities and ongoing interference in the election even as U.S. officials publicly called out Iran on Wednesday night.

(Bloomberg) -- Philippine stocks are beating global peers this week after having spent much of the year in the company of the world’s worst-performing equity markets.The turnaround has been spurred by economic reopenings and a drop in the pace of Covid-19 cases, which saw foreign investors turning net buyers of local stocks on Wednesday after 28 days of selling. The Philippine Stock Exchange Index climbed for a fifth straight day on Friday, taking its advance this week to almost 10%, the biggest among more than 90 global equity indexes tracked by Bloomberg.READ: Philippine Stocks Breach Moving Average in Bullish Sign: ChartSome market watchers had predicted a rebound in Philippine shares following their stark underperformance to regional peers, citing a potential rise in consumer spending and positive seasonal returns for local stocks in the fourth quarter. Yet given the concerns about a recovery in corporate earnings, this week’s sharp ascent is already making investors wary.“The market could still trend up from further economic reopening, slowing Covid cases and healthier earnings” but “valuation is a bit high,” according to Robert Ramos, head of trust and investments group at Rizal Commercial Banking Corp. “These are exciting times but people are still on guard with their money.”The PSEi gauge is now trading at 17.6 times its 12-month estimated earnings, the highest since March 2018, and versus a five-year average multiple of 16.7. It may be tough for the index to go too far beyond 6,400 this year unless a successful coronavirus vaccine is produced, Ramos said. The index jumped 2.2% on Friday to close at 6,484.06.“This bounce must be validated by earnings, for it’s primarily driven by expectations the economy will improve as it further opens up,” says Fitzgerald Aclan, CIO at United Coconut Planters Bank. “If numbers disappoint, we’d move downwards and sideways again.”(Updates with index close in the fifth paragraph.)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.

What is the background to the claims made by President Trump about Ukraine and the Bidens?
Trump considered second best in debate praised as ‘more controlled’ and ‘much better’ than last month’s chaotic affairDemocratic presidential candidate Joe Biden was perceived as the winner of the final debate with Donald Trump on Thursday night, according to a CNN poll of debate viewers and a panel of undecided North Carolina voters.Though the groups are not representative of actual US voters, they offered a snapshot of the reaction to the debate, which came just two weeks before election day, as Trump trails his opponent in national polls and was seeking to reset his appeal with more moderate Republican supporters.The CNN poll found it was perceived as a slightly weaker performance compared to the first, chaotic presidential debate last month, when 60% of viewers perceived Biden as the winner, compared to 53% on Thursday night.Participants in a CNN panel of undecided North Carolina voters said that Trump’s strength in the debate was his focus on the economy, while Biden’s strength was his emphasis on “unifying” Americans.The CNN undecided voter panel praised the final debate as “more controlled” and “much better”. Almost all of the voters on that panel said that Biden won the debate.But the takeaways from a focus group of undecided voters assembled by the Los Angeles Times and pollster Frank Luntz was less positive for Biden.Words that the undecided voters in that panel used to describe Biden’s debate performance included: “vague”, “cognitively impaired”, “I don’t want to say senile so I’ll say old”, “uncomfortable”, “grandfatherly”, “defensive”, and “ambiguous”, Associated Press reporter Jill Colvin tweeted.Trump was described by the same group as “controlled”, “constrained”, “petulant” “reserved”, “surprisingly presidential”, and a “con artist”, Colvin wrote.A small group of voters who watched the debate for PBS NewsHour and said the debate left them feeling “informed.” They praised moderator Kristen Welker, an NBC White House correspondent. A woman on CNN’s undecided panel also hailed the debate’s much-touted mute button. “That made a big difference,” she said.Even on a day when the United States saw the third-highest total number of new coronavirus cases, at more than 73,000, according to the Atlantic’s Covid Tracking Project, some undecided voters shared Trump’s emphasis on keeping businesses open, whatever the public health cost.“Like Donald Trump said, if we shut down the economy at the expense of the people, there’s not going to be a country to come back to,” one voter on CNN’s undecided panel said.As they did in the first debate, pro-Trump viewers spent a lot of time complaining about perceived bias of the debate moderator towards Biden, and claiming that Trump was cut off more often.“Trump is doing a good job. Too bad they had to treat Trump like a child by shutting off his mic. Embarrassing!” one commenter wrote on the Fox News Facebook page during the debate.In fact, Trump had slightly more total speaking time than Biden: just over 41 minutes, compared with just under 38 minutes for Biden, CNN reported.Some viewers found the entire section of the debate on “race”, which centered on police violence and criminal justice reform, to be frustrating.“Blackness and criminality are not the same,” Phillip Atiba Goff, a leading researcher on racial bias in policing, wrote on Twitter. “Would really love Black communities to be on the agenda outside of questions about punishment.”Gene Demby, the co-host of Code Switch, National Public Radio’s podcast on race and identity, wrote: “This conversation about race in the US with two rich, powerful septuagenarians is going about as well as anyone could have anticipated.”Demby highlighted context that Trump’s repeated debate claims about improving unemployment rates for black Americans lacked. Black unemployment rates have been roughly twice as high as white unemployment rates for decades, he wrote. “‘Record low Black unemployment’ is often still at rates we would consider high or recession-level if we were talking about white folks.”Pro-Trump viewers commenting on the Fox News Facebook page wrote that Biden’s comments about “the talk” black parents have with their children about how to behave when they are stopped by the police were unconvincing as evidence of the racism black Americans face. Several of them wrote that they also taught their children how to be respectful towards the police.Commenters on Fox were also unimpressed by the debate question Trump was asked about his administration’s ongoing failure to reunite 545 migrant children with their parents after they were separated from their families under the administration’s “zero-tolerance” policy, which was widely denounced as a serious human rights violation.“If you don’t want to be separated from your kids don’t try and enter the country illegally,” one commenter on Fox News’s page wrote.“Those 525 kids are now on US soil and in the custody of the US … just what their parents wanted,” another commenter suggested.
French carmaker Renault posted an 8.2% fall in third-quarter revenues to 10.4 billion euros ($12.3 billion) on Friday, an improved performance compared to earlier in the year when dealerships closed under coronavirus lockdowns.

(Bloomberg) -- Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden blamed Donald Trump for the deaths of more than 220,000 Americans in the coronavirus pandemic, saying the president doesn’t deserve re-election. The seven-day average of U.S. deaths on Wednesday hit the highest in a month.The surge in U.S. cases mirrors those seen in the Europe, where governments have started deploying curfews and other restrictions more widely. The outbreak gained momentum with France reporting more than 40,000 new cases for the first time, as well as record infections in Italy, Germany and at least eight other nations. This may force the European Central Bank to step up monetary stimulus later this year, according to economists surveyed by Bloomberg.Remdesivir, given to President Trump as a Covid-19 treatment, received approval from the Food and Drug Administration. Meanwhile, U.S. vaccine advisers questioned whether safety and efficacy standards set by FDA officials were high enough to warrant emergency authorization of a shot.Key Developments:Global Tracker: Cases pass 41.6 million; deaths exceed 1.14 millionCovid-19 deaths are increasing in the U.S. after months of declinePelosi, Mnuchin to talk stimulus again as Trump hints at failureGovernments around Europe began to deploy curfews more widelyEurope facing dearth of medical staff in test of virus readinessSweden’s Lax Covid Policy Is No Slam Dunk for Industrial SectorECB Seen Preparing More Aid as Spreading Virus Derails EconomyInvestors brace for barrage of Covid vaccine data to roil marketSubscribe to a daily update on the virus from Bloomberg’s Prognosis team here.

A dark winter. And he has no clear plan.”Unlike their first debate, in which Trump repeatedly talked over Biden and Biden called him a “clown” and told him to “shut up,” the candidates initially complied with rules of the debate that called for them to allow each other time to speak.Biden said he would encourage all Americans to wear masks, contrasting himself with Trump, who has seldom covered his face before or after contracting Covid-19 himself. Trump defended his response to the pandemic to begin the debate, saying that spikes in cases in states including Florida and Texas have come down, his administration has directed the production of ample medical supplies, and the country is “rounding the turn.”South Korea Has 155 More Coronavirus Cases (08:38 a.m. HK)South Korea reports 155 new coronavirus cases in 24 hours versus 119 a day earlier, according to data from the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency.

Deaths rose 479 to 87,894.FDA Vaccine Rules Challenged (07:53 a.m. HK)U.S. vaccine advisers questioned whether safety and efficacy standards set by Food and Drug Administration officials were high enough to warrant emergency authorization of a shot.About two dozen outside advisers to the FDA with expertise in infectious diseases met Thursday to weigh in on agency standards that require a vaccine to work in at least 50% of people and for drugmakers to collect two months of safety data on at least half of clinical trial volunteers.Many panel members and outside researchers who commented during the hearing worried that if a vaccine is rushed out that later turns out to have safety problems or to be less effective than promised, it could backfire in a big way, undermining public confidence in Covid-19 vaccines for years to come.Blood Plasma Didn’t Benefit Covid-19 Patients (07:13 a.m. HK)A trial found that infusing hospitalized Covid-19 patients with blood plasma from people who had recovered had no effect on whether they got sicker or died, Stat reports, citing a study published in the medical journal BMJ.The study was the first completed randomized trial of the treatments.

The startup tried and failed to go public late last year. The spread of the coronavirus worsened WeWork’s predicament as people opted to work from home, rather than in the communal offices the company rents out.Almost 60 Infected at Canadian Pork Plant (6:13 a.m. HK)A total of 58 people have tested positive for Covid-19 at an Olymel pork processing plant in the Canadian province of Quebec, but the plant remains fully operational, spokesman Richard Vigneault said on Thursday.“All those people have gone home and are on recovery, we hope,” he said.

Dublin, Oct. 23, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "e-Commerce in the Global Mattress Industry, 2020" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. The research report offers a detailed analysis of the online mattress market with a particular focus on three world areas: The Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific. The study analyses the largest retail mattress markets, estimating the incidence of online mattress sales in key countries (the US, Canada, China, India, South Korea, Germany, the UK, France and Spain), the e-commerce mattress sales of the leading retailers (e-tailers, brick-and-mortar retailers, online mattress companies and mattress manufacturers) and providing company profiles highlighting their activity and performance in this sector. The COVID-19 outbreak is affecting the global business, with no exception both for furniture and mattress markets. There are, however, some aspects to take into consideration when considering the mattress sector. The online channel, which was already eroding offline shares among the global mattress retail markets in recent years, is increasing and partially compensating the sharp decrease of brick-and-mortar stores' sales. According to the publisher, the online mattress market was already following a growth trajectory, registering a +30% in 2019, with different performances across the world. The United States is by far the largest market; in Europe, the increase in the online mattress market in Germany is remarkable; in the Asia-Pacific, the booming Chinese market drives growth. During the first semester of 2020, the fast increase in online sales is recorded among the largest retailers of home furniture and mattresses (in particular online mattress companies).
