Published

Lululemon Athletica Inc said on Monday the holiday shopping season was even better than it had expected and raised its profit and revenue forecasts for the fourth quarter, sending the Canadian yogawear maker’s shares to their highest since June 2013. Holiday quarter is every retail workers biggest fear, and headache- however it can account to almost 40% of revenue yearly.

The expected revenue for the fourth quarter is $905 million to $915 million which ends on Jan 28th. The company had forecast net revenue of $870 million to $885 million when it had reported third-quarter results in December.

Trump Has a Really Big Budget Proposal

And it might hit higher education right where it hurts.

The White House’s 2019 budget proposal was released yesterday, with the bold headline being that the administration wants $4.4 trillion for the year. The proposal bears President Trump’s vision of an America armed for war, paid for in part by an America that doesn’t prioritize education.

The $4.4 trillion is a dramatic increase from the amount of money the Trump administration spent during 2017. Much of the added funds would go toward military spending and toward funding a wall on the border between the United States and Mexico.

“We’re going to have the strongest military we’ve ever had, by far,” the president said. To “balance” the federal budget see-saw, Trump removes weight through cuts, scientific research, public broadcasting, and domestic programs benefitting the poor and middle class, such as student loans.

The proposal would also reduce funding for social programs like Medicaid and Medicare. Even with these cuts, government spending is projected to increase the federal debt by at least $7 trillion by 2027.

According to CNBC, “The proposal would sharply curtail income-based repayment plans, scratch the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program, and embolden the government to go after students who don’t pay their loans and cut funding for federal work study in half.”

Implementation of such changes to loans would be seen by borrowers only after July 1, 2019. 

As lawmakers from both parties digest the details, they will be arming for a potentially long struggle toward approval in the weeks ahead.

Dunkin’ to Stop Using Foam Cups by 2020

And it’s about time, too.

Published

on

There has always been something different about getting coffee from Dunkin’ Donuts. It’s a no-frill — but super tasty — alternative to Starbucks or your local brewer, with down home, no-frills feel.

And they serve their brew in those foam cups. Comforting and easy to grab, sure, but not very good for the environment.

Dunkin’ announced today that those polystyrene foam cups will be completely phased out from its stores globally by 2020, reducing the waste stream by millions.

Foam packaging of any kind decomposes very slowly, washes into waterways and can harm sea life and other creatures who depend on the water supply to live.

McDonald’s also said it will get rid of any remaining foam cups in the next few years as well, though they have already drastically reduced dependance on them.

So raise one to Dunkin’ for taking a step in an environmentally friendly direction.
