Lacaille Beauty, a black female-owned personal care products company, launches its website and its inaugural safe, natural organic hair care product collection targeted at black women.West Park, United States, April 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lacaille Beauty, a black female-owned organic natural beauty company focused on hair and skin products for black women, announced the launch of its inaugural hair care collection and website. More details can be found at: https://lacaillebeauty.com The newly launched hair care collection makes available to black women in particular, a full range of hair care products made from natural organic ingredients that are safe and deliver healthy, hydrated, and shiny hair.

A separate study found 50 percent of hair products used by black women contained endocrine disruptors, compared with just 7 percent of those used by white women. The Lacaille Beauty hair care product collection is made with natural organic ingredients and is free of parabens and phthalates. In line with their philosophy of using natural organic ingredients and protecting the environment, they are also free of mineral oil, petroleum, and formaldehyde. The collection is based around the Avocado and Honey with Coconut Mild Shampoo, which combines Lacaille Beauty’s unique blend of natural oils with a gentle cleanser that includes rich moisturizing agents for strengthening to deliver healthy, shiny, and hydrated hair. It is also safe to use on color-treated hair. The collection also includes a Deep Conditioner, Fortifying Leave-in Conditioner, Hair Repositor, Vitamin Boost Hair Primer, and Anti-frizz and Shine Curl Forming Custard Cream. All are produced according to the Lacaille Beauty vision of using natural organic ingredients to deliver safe personal care products. Lacaille Beauty’s black female founder and CEO is Barbara Moise. She created Lacaille Beauty after being disappointed with existing hair care products that failed to deliver and started creating her own products based on natural and essential oils and other natural ingredients. Her first collection will be followed by further lines of natural organic beauty products for all hair and skin types to create a brand that empowers women and gives back to society and the environment.

(Bloomberg) -- Qatari stocks advanced the most in the Gulf after the country said it may allow foreign investors to fully own listed companies, a move that could trigger more than $1 billion of overseas inflows.The cabinet approved a draft law that will allow overseas investors to own up to 100% of listed companies, according to the state-run Qatar News Agency. If the law is implemented, companies would have to individually approve the increased limit.While implementation in Qatar is yet to be confirmed, the decision could trigger inflows of about $1.5 billion into listed companies that would earn bigger representation in global benchmarks, according to estimates by investment bank EFG-Hermes.Some of the stocks that could benefit the most include Qatar Islamic Bank SAQ, Masraf Al Rayan QSC and the Commercial Bank of Qatar, the investment bank said.Qatar’s QE Index advanced as much as 2.3% on Thursday, leading gains in the Gulf. It extended gains this year to 4%, lagging most peers in the region.The gas-rich nation is following similar decisions by other Gulf countries as they seek to attract inflows from abroad. In 2019, the United Arab Emirates said it would allow foreigners to own 100% of businesses across industries and Saudi Arabia removed a cap on ownership of publicly traded companies for foreign strategic investors.Read more: Qatar Eases Rules on Foreign Property Ownership Amid Slump(Updates with shares in lead and 5th paragraph)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
"How upset, pissed, and disgusted I am that Mayor Foppoli would duck out of this meeting. You all had a right to be heard and now he won't hear you."
(Bloomberg) -- China is expected to report the highest quarterly economic growth ever since it began releasing such data 30 years ago, but that won’t give a true picture of the strength of the recovery.The 18.5% year-on-year expansion predicted by a Bloomberg survey of economists is largely a mirror-image of the unprecedented decline in gross domestic product in the first quarter of 2020 caused by coronavirus control measures. Investors need to look beyond that number to assess the state of the Chinese economy’s post-pandemic recovery.Here’s a guide to what to watch out for in Friday’s GDP report.Base EffectsThe economy shrunk a record 6.8% in the first quarter of 2020 as Beijing became the first government to issue stay-at-home orders due to combat Covid-19. But the economy quickly bounced back once the restrictions were eased, recovering all the lost ground by the end of September and continuing to expand since then.One way to better understand the results from the most recent three months is to compare it to the previous quarter instead of the same period last year. That captures the immediate momentum in the economy and removes the extraordinary lockdown period from the comparison.An 18.5% expansion compared to the first three months of last year means that growth actually plateaued from the previous quarter, according to economists at Goldman Sachs Group Inc. That year-on-year number is therefore a dividing line indicating whether the recovery peaked at the end of 2020 or continued to gain pace.There is some sign that momentum slowed due to tighter credit policy beginning late last year and social distancing measures to combat viral outbreaks that lingered into February. The median forecast is for quarterly growth to slow to 1.4% from 2.6% in the final three months of last year.On the other hand, strong exports driven by overseas demand means trade likely contributed a considerable share to economic output, and sales of excavators continued to be robust in March, suggesting solid domestic investment growth.Industrial ProductionStrong industrial production last year was driven by smokestack industries such as steel and cement, and medical and electronic manufacturing, mostly for export. Monthly data will show if the industrial recovery has broadened.Because manufacturing is the main component of the “secondary” sector, which consumes about 70% of China’s electric power, electricity consumption statistics released this week suggest industrial production surged 20.3% in March from a year ago, according to economists at Nomura Holdings Inc.The data are also expected to remain unusually high due to base effects, as the closure of workplaces continued into March last year. Some economists will look at an average of two-year growth to better assess the sector’s strength. Using that technique, Morgan Stanley economists expect industrial production growth likely accelerated to 7.6% in the first quarter of this year from 6.5% in the final three months of 2020, in part due to strong export demand.Consumption and EmploymentRetail sales data will provide a window into whether there has been a pick-up in consumer spending, so far the weakest component of China’s economic recovery. Early indicators -- such as spending during the recent national holiday -- suggest improvement from last year but with some distance to go to return to pre-pandemic levels.Morgan Stanley expects retail sales growth to pick up to 3.8% in March on a two-year average basis, faster than the 3.1% in January-February, as consumers boosted spending on services such as restaurant visits.To a large extent consumption will depend on how the job market and wages have improved. While disposable income will likely have rebounded sharply in the first quarter from the low base, it may not have fed through to robust retail sales. A recent central bank survey showed that sentiment regarding jobs and income was still below pre-Covid-19 levels.InvestmentCorporate and government investment continue to be the economy’s main driver. Policy makers relied on property investment to fuel the recovery last year, but have instructed real estate developers to rein in borrowing that they use to fund projects. Monthly fixed-asset investment data will help show whether those measures weakened overall investment, or if government infrastructure spending and capacity expansion by manufacturers, who are enjoying strong profits, will make up for a downturn in housing.(Updates with electricity consumption data)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

Harju County Court stared the proceedings on the claim filed by AS Tallink Grupp (hereinafter: „Tallink“) against AS Tallinna Sadam (hereinafter: „Tallinna Sadam“) for partial reimbursement of the port dues of EUR 15.4 million (plus accrued interest) unduly received or, alternatively, for compensation of damages. Tallink claims that Tallinna Sadam has imposed unfairly high port dues in the Tallinn Old City Harbour for passenger vessels sailing on international regular lines in the years 2017, 2018 and 2019; and thereby abused its dominant position in the market. In the opinion of Tallinna Sadam, the claim filed by Tallink for compensation of allegedly unfair port dues is unreasonable and Tallinna Sadam intends to stand up for the sustainability of the company and the interests of its shareholders. Commentary on Tallink's stock exchange announcement of the claim is presented in Tallinna Sadam’s 01.03.2021 announcement. The claim does not have a direct impact on the financial results of Tallinna Sadam, as the management board of Tallinna Sadam considers the claim unjustified and no reserve has been formed to cover the claim. Tallinna Sadam is one of the largest cargo- and passenger port complexes in the Baltic Sea region, which serves annually 10 million passengers and 20 million tons of cargo in average. In addition to passenger and freight services, Tallinna Sadam group also operates in shipping business via its subsidiaries – OÜ TS Laevad provides ferry services between the Estonian mainland and the largest islands, and OÜ TS Shipping charters its multifunctional vessel Botnica for icebreaking and construction services in Estonia and offshore projects abroad. Tallinna Sadam group is also a shareholder of an associate AS Green Marine, which provides waste management services. The group’s sales in 2020 totalled EUR 107.4 million, adjusted EBITDA EUR 58.4 million and profit EUR 28.5 million.

(Bloomberg) -- Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., the world’s No. 1 maker of advanced silicon, boosted its spending and revenue growth targets for this year as global companies from carmakers to PC suppliers scramble for chips.The world’s largest contract chipmaker said Thursday that its automaker industry clients can expect chip shortages to begin easing next quarter, alleviating some of the supply disruptions that have forced the likes of GM and Ford to curtail production. But overall deficits of critical semiconductors will last throughout 2021 and potentially into next year, Chief Executive Officer C.C. Wei told analysts on a conference call.TSMC now expects investments of about $30 billion on capacity expansions and upgrades this year, after spending $8.8 billion in the first three months, Chief Financial Officer Wendell Huang said. The company had previously forecast spending of as much as $28 billion. Sales in the June quarter may reach $13.2 billion, beating the average $12.8 billion seen by analysts, while full-year revenue may climb 20% in dollar terms, ahead of the “mid-teens” growth predicted in January. “We see the demand continue to be high and the shortage will continue throughout this year and may be extended into 2022 also,” said Chief Executive Officer C.C. Wei. Surging demand for the chips that power Apple Inc.’s iPhones, smart televisions and connected cars has thrust TSMC into the center of a global supply chain crunch that has idled auto plants and fueled a shortage of popular consumer products like game consoles. While Taiwan’s largest chipmaker has kept its fabs running at “over 100% utilization,” the firm doesn’t have enough capacity to satisfy all its customers and it has pledged to invest $100 billion over the next three years to expand.Net income for the January-March period climbed 19% to NT$139.7 billion ($4.9 billion), versus the average analyst estimate of NT$136.2 billion. Gross margin for the quarter eased to 52.4% from 54% in the three months prior, due in part to relatively lower levels of utilization and exchange-rate fluctuations. First-quarter revenue rose 17% to NT$362.4 billion, according to a company statement last week.“TSMC is likely to achieve a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 15% with its $100 billion capex spending over the next three years due to better-than-expected longterm semiconductor demand,” Cathay Futures analyst Felix Hsu said in a note dated April 7.With major American carmakers and other gadget suppliers facing a prolonged shortage of chips, U.S. President Joe Biden has proposed $50 billion to bolster semiconductor research and manufacturing at home. The initiative could aid TSMC’s plan to build a cutting-edge fab in Arizona this year that could cost $12 billion.Shares of TSMC have more than doubled over the past year. The stock advanced 1.1% on Thursday, before the company reported earnings.TSMC’s most-advanced technologies continued to account for nearly half of revenue, with 5-nanometer and 7-nanometer processes contributing 14% and 35% of sales, respectively. By business segment, TSMC’s smartphone business amounted for about 45% of revenue, while high-performance computing increased to more than a third, reflecting sustained demand for devices even as economies start to emerge from the pandemic.Semiconductor shortages are cascading through the global economy. Automakers like Ford Motor Co., Nissan Motor Co.and Volkswagen AG have already scaled back production, leading to estimates for more than $60 billion in lost revenue for the industry this year.The situation is likely get worse before it gets better. A rare winter storm in Texas knocked out swaths of U.S. production. A fire at a key Japan factory will shut the facility for a month. Samsung Electronics Co. warned of a “serious imbalance” in the industry, while TSMC itself has said it can’t keep up with demand despite running factories at more than 100% of capacity.

Future-forward talent solution answers market demand for digital upskilling and reskilling through a “secure-first” technology-enabled variable workforce solution, delivered on-demand to drive business responsiveness and meet growth acceleration imperatives.Austin, Texas, United States, April 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Unprecedented times have catapulted companies, their leadership, and their HR departments into tackling extraordinary amounts of change across their human capital strategy. For those that have embraced warp-speed digital acceleration and the idea that “work is a thing you do, not a place you go”, new and exciting possibilities have emerged that never existed before and, for them, the future looks bright. But, for many organizations, accelerated levels of digital transformation have not come easy, especially when it comes to new digital skills required to adapt and evolve in today’s markets. Companies are being forced to take a critical look at whether their current talent strategy and level of digital fluency across every role is up to snuff with the ever-changing demands of the market. Can they scale talent up and down as they need? Is their model flexible and agile enough to meet the ebbs and flows of the modern workforce? Do they have the skills they need when they need them? If not, can they create skill development solutions fast enough to compete? Are they able to bring on talent safely and securely, regardless of where they are located? Being able to answer these questions with clarity, confidence and delivering future-proof talent solutions will separate those who will win from those who will continue to struggle in a world where change remains constant. A2K Partners believes that the ability to win in the future should not be limited to a few but rather open to all those willing to embrace change and the excitement of possibilities. Therefore, with its new Secure Talent Cloud offering, A2K Partners is making it easy for companies to transition to more modern talent solutions and achieve new levels of performance and scale, previously unattainable to most organizations without investing in major work redesign efforts. Built from the ground up, Secure Talent Cloud addresses critical obstacles that have traditionally prevented companies from expanding freelance and temporary worker usage in their business by bundling in-demand talent with highly secure “work from anywhere” digital workspace technology. It features corporate-grade “zero-trust” security already built-in at the core, bringing privacy and peace of mind to companies with even the strictest InfoSec policies. Considered an “Experience as a Service”, the turnkey solution ensures all customer and company information stays isolated and safe with best-in-class identity, encryption, and security for everything work. Typical concerns about risk — like downloading, taking screenshots, or capturing data — are safeguarded or restricted. Ready to hit the ground running, this next-gen contingent workforce solution addresses and pre-solves large portions of the work redesign effort for companies as part of the service. All talent comes automatically equipped with the secure access to applications, content, and files companies will need them to have on day one — in ways that best integrate and collaborate with a company’s environment and teams. Ongoing, they can quickly and easily scale the amount of skill and people clients need up or down — in an elastic manner — to support changing organizational needs. As a result, companies can maintain business continuity with more flexibility to achieve business outcomes. “The ways companies have been relying on to address their skills gaps were already years behind pre-pandemic. Our solution allows them to stop playing digital catch-up and, instead, leap ahead in their market through the ability to bring creative and innovative talent into their organization to start delivering full transformative potential in a matter of days. The best and most important part is having peace of mind around everything security.” said Ray Wolf, CEO of A2K Partners “In today's environments, the best variable workforce models begin and end with security, while delivering productivity enhancements every step in-between. The Secure Talent Cloud is designed from the organization’s perspective and their needs outward to do just that.” STC further alleviates other critical functions companies struggle with when it comes to securely staffing their workforce. HR new-hire onboarding, computer and mobile device provisioning with access to IT systems, asset management, and assuring offboarding processes are completed at the end of the staff engagement. Everything is done virtually and automated to eliminate friction and unnecessary costs caused by traditional rigid processes and to allow for individual tailored onboarding experiences securely in a hybrid remote/office working environment. “With our help, customers can automatically onboard and offboard supplemental talent and their required technology to make a difference right away.” continued Wolf. “We orchestrate and deploy talent journey and secure remote work experiences in ways that unlock maximum talent performance, value, and ROI. This translates to more productivity, better engagement, and rapid time to proficiency business stakeholders expect and demand in today’s business climates.” A2K Partners consults with companies up-front to dissect every step of the talent journey and pre-integrate the secure technology solution into their environment. This includes equipping talent with an efficient and intelligent cloud-based digital workspace from technology partner Citrix that allows customers to open new talent pools and better ability to work with resources in low-bandwidth geographical locations. It can also eliminate the need to give workers company desktops and laptops along with administrative burden and support from the IT department. The result cuts time to proficiency by 2/3rds, while boosting engagement and productivity by 20% to redefine and simplify what it means to get work done securely from anywhere, anytime. “Companies need to embrace more flexible work models that enable their workforce to better execute and access the best talent to win.” said Scott Swansburg, Managing Director, Commercial Partner Sales, U.S. at Citrix “Companies that leverage secure digital workspace technology from Citrix to enable remote work can tap into hard-to-find talent in distributed locations to contain costs and increase employee engagement and resulting productivity. Our technology is proving how to transform productivity gains into real dollars.” Secure digital work environments are no longer an option for any company. Trusted identity and access are now vital tickets to play for external talent and contingent workforce providers. Businesses have a real concern about how data is being accessed and how to effectively secure it. A remote workforce presents an expanded attack perimeter and requires a different mindset. The Secure Talent Cloud solution from A2K Partners was created with this in mind and to set a new standard where people can hire quality talent and have them safely do their work from anywhere. “Work is no longer about getting the most out of people anyway, anyhow, the new standard requires work to be flexible and frictionless. But the real secret is to get the workforce to operate at the top of their skill range. Companies need to free up maximum people time and energy and apply it to their most impactful strategic initiatives working on only the business-critical tasks at every level of employee.” Wolf said in closing. “Now more than ever, companies must accelerate reskilling and upskilling their organization with responsive and forward-thinking variable talent to meet constantly changing needs, stay relevant and outpace their competitors, crisis or not.” About A2K Partners A2K Partners provides digital work and talent redesign solutions while translating technologies into more ways of accelerating value, revenue, and growth. Their solutions assist business leaders with analyzing and designing digital work experiences to maximize value chains and multiply human capital potential by bringing together superior user experiences, IT flexibility, and security to foster successful business outcomes. The company helps companies achieve unprecedented organizational priorities to rethink and improve operational excellence, execute business transformations, and optimize costs to innovate and grow the business at the pace of business modernization required to remain relevant and competitive.
