Nike Battles Upstart Under Armour, High Expenses
The Street - about 3 years
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Nike , the world's leading manufacturer of athletic footwear, apparel and equipment, delivered good quarterly results with strong direct-to-consumer sales growth. In the meantime, its rival Under Armour has also impressed investors with a blowout performance. And in the coming quarter, Nike will likely continue posting strong numbers for direct-to-consumer sales. Is Nike a slam dunk, then? Maybe not. [Read: Yahoo! Shares Are Cheap, But Don't Wait or the Sale May End] Investors should remain cautious, as Nike is still struggling to rein in its expenses. Moreover, the business's performance in China and other emerging markets is far from satisfactory. The company has not reported any growth in combined revenues from these two regions in the first six months of the current fiscal year. Nike's shares have risen by nearly 10% in the last six months, to $72.67. Its price-to-earnings ratio is 24.8, making Nike considerably cheaper than Under Armour by that me ...

Tiger Mom vs. Brooklyn Dragon: I Hereby Challenge Amy Chua to a Barefist Kung Fu Duel
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Amy Chua, I offer these words as a declaration of kung fu challenge -- an invitation to engage in a stern dialogue of fists such that we can measure, publicly and for the world to know, who between the two of us has the bigger, longer Chinese-ness. I'm talkin' me and you and the most Chinesest challenge imaginable. I'm talkin' I wanted to send you this invitation written in calligraphy on a small rolled up scroll, delivered by a pigeon -- but my pigeon has a drinking problem and was too hungover to fly. I'm talkin' I wanted to send shirtless kung fu henchmen to your house to silently but dramatically mouth these words in Mandarin while a poorly synced English translation plays on a tape recorder. That's the level of Chinese-ness I'm talking about. Tell me how you want it, Chua. We could match fists across the rooftops of a small rural village, the shadow outlines of our battle poses stitched across the cold black fabric of night. We could flying swordfight ballet upon the tops of tall ...

Toxic chemicals found in children's clothes, shoes: Greenpeace
The Express Tribune Blogs - about 3 years
BUDAPEST: Children’s clothing and shoes made by a dozen globally-recognised brands have been found to contain potentially harmful chemicals, Greenpeace said Tuesday. A new investigation by the environmental campaign group showed that at least one article from every brand was found to have chemicals that “can have adverse impacts either on human reproductive, hormonal or immune systems”. But some of the substances it tested were at concentrations as low as 1mg per kilo, which it described as “the limit of detection”, and it was not clear from the statement how many of the samples were above official limits. The campaign group has issued similar findings before, and in 2012 held a “toxic” fashion show in Beijing to draw attention to its allegation that two-thirds of high-street garments it tested contained harmful chemicals. Greenpeace analysed 82 products manufactured in 12 different countries, with China the biggest producer on 29. “This is ...

TPG pays Murdoch unit $214 million for Chinese media company stake
Fox Business News - over 3 years
U.S. private equity firm TPG Capital will pay HK$1.66 billion ($213.73 million) for 21st Century Fox-controlled Star Entertainment's remaining stake in a Chinese satellite television operator. The move is the next step of Rupert Murdoch's slow exit from Chinese media, following News Corp's sale of controlling stakes in three mainland television channels to domestic private equity funds in 2010. In a filing to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange late on Friday, Phoenix Satellite Television said TPG China Media L.P. will become a "substantial shareholder" after taking over Star's entire 12.15 percent stake. With the sale, Star representatives will also step down from Phoenix's board. The deal was announced on the same day that Murdoch was re-elected chairman of Twenty-First Century Fox Inc despite protests from shareholder groups who sought to separate the chairman and chief executive positions of the family-dominated company. Murdoch split News Corp into two companies i ...
