The Kindergarten Teacher: is this Maggie Gyllenhaal's finest performance to date?

13-Oct-2018

The Kindergarten Teacher’s Lisa is a lower-key puzzle box than either of those, but a more teasing one, and a bracing reminder of Gyllenhaal’s one-off movie star quality: the film may be going to Netflix, but her manifold ambiguities as a performer are still best magnified for the cinema.

Yet on winning one three years ago, for her performance in the BBC’s The Honourable Woman, Maggie Gyllenhaal managed one.

China trade surplus with U.S. reaches record $34.1 billion

13-Oct-2018

China's trade surplus with the United States widened to a record $34.1 billion in September as exports to the American market rose by 13 percent over a year earlier despite a worsening tariff war.

September marked the second straight record Chinese monthly trade surplus with the United States after August's $31 billion. Export numbers have been buoyed by producers rushing to fill orders before American tariffs rose, but they also benefit from "robust U.S. demand" and a weaker Chinese currency, which makes their goods cheaper abroad, said Louis Kuijs of Oxford Economics in a report.

Jedediah Bila: I had to ghost my cell phone... to take back my life

13-Oct-2018

Think about the peace of mind that could instead come from saying your piece civilly and moving on, or sometimes not saying anything at all.

Rage is nothing new, of course, but back in the days before social media, internal rage would turn into a discussion with whoever was in front of the TV with you at the time, or whoever was a phone call away. When something controversial happens in the world, like Robert De Niro’s “F**k Trump” comment at the Tony Awards in June or the recent Brett Kavanaugh hearings, people become enraged.

Treasury yields advance to trim week’s slide

13-Oct-2018

Treasury yields rose on early Friday trading, arresting the week’s slide, as the bond market took a breather from the rotation out of risk assets and stocks into U.S. government paper earlier this week.

Market participants are closely watching for the possibility that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin will still label China as a manipulator in next week’s semi-annual report. That could remain a lingering flashpoint in trade tensions between the U.S. and China, a potential geopolitical spark for inflows into U.S. government paper later this year.
