Top 10 landmarks in gay and lesbian literature

From Walt Whitman to Colette and even Virginia Woolf, these books offer readers a vision of how we might live differently, and better Ask me on another day and it would be other books: Shakespeare’s sonnets, Gilgamesh, the Greek Anthology, Sappho, Katherine Philips, Plato, Jean Genet, Ronald Firbank … So these 10 items are mere suggestions, not commandments. My favourite working definition is that a gay text is one that is amenable to a gay reading. As simple as that. These categories exist not for their own sake, or for critics’, but in the service of the reader – the gay or lesbian reader first of all, but others too. Continue reading...

There's one big problem with China's plan to transform its economy

One of China's long-term economic plans is to get its workers out of rural areas and into cities. This is part of China's larger goal of transforming the country's economy into one based on services and consumer spending. Ultimately, the government wants to get about 70% of its population into cities. But it seems as if China may actually be on the edge of a reverse migration, as many migrants are returning back home. Back in January, the National Bureau of Statistics reported that the migrant population in 2015 dropped for the first time in three decades — by 5.68 million. Bloomberg View's Adam Minter previously noted that part of that drop could be attributed to economic reasons such as a deterioration in the manufacturing sector and an improvement in rural economies. He also suggested, however, that people were moving back home for noneconomic reasons, too, such as taking care of aging parents. In a monthly research note to clients, Deutsche Bank's Torsten Sl√łk shared a chart showing the percentage of rural migrants seeking jobs outside their hometown over the past five years. As you can see below, the percentage has dropped close to zero, down from about 5.5% in 2010. [Screen Shot 2016 05 03 at 9.39.34 AM]Deutsche Bank One notable consequence from China's reverse migration is that China's ghost cities may end up staying ghost cities for much longer, as Seeking Alpha's Pater Tenebrarum noted. Still, while this reverse migration may not be in line with China's master plan, it's not necessarily a bad trend. As Bloomberg View's Minter noted: It should help alleviate the overcrowding in China's biggest cities and the sharp income disparity between rural and urban areas. Returning migrants tend to be more worldly and wealthy than when they left, as well as more entrepreneurial: The number of people starting new businesses in rural China grew 3.1%, year over year, in the first half of 2015. In total, about 2 million migrants have returned home to start businesses. And, arguably, the more pressing demographic issue is China's aging population; by 2050 its over-65 age group is estimated to be about equal in size to the combined total projected populations of Japan, Germany, Australia, and Egypt.

10 things you need to know before the opening bell (spx, spy, qqq, dia, bud, jpb, c, bac, gs)

[Kentucky Derby]AP/Charlie Riedel Here is what you need to know. TRUMP IS THE REPUBLICAN PARTY'S PRESUMPTIVE PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE. Donald Trump delivered the knockout blow Tuesday evening in Indiana's primary. He claimed 51 delegates while taking 53.3% of the vote. Trump's victory forced Sen. Ted Cruz to suspend his campaign and caused Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, to tweet, ".@realDonaldTrump will be presumptive @GOP nominee, we all need to unite and focus on defeating @HillaryClinton #NeverClinton." On the Democratic side, Sen. Bernie Sanders won Indiana, taking at least 43 of the 83 available delegates. THE ECB'S STIMULUS IS FINALLY STARTING TO SHOW IT'S WORKING. Markit's latest services PMI data showed "tepid" but "sustained" growth in the eurozone. April's final reading slipped to 53.1 on expectations it would inch up from 53.2 to 53.3. While the number was down from the preliminary reading, it showed healthy expansion in the region's services sector. According to a statement accompanying the release, "The 'big-four' nations all reported expansions of economic activity in April, with Spain seeing the steepest rate of increase." The euro is weaker by 0.2% at 1.1479. THE US DOLLAR TICKS OFF 16-MONTH LOWS. The US dollar index trades up 0.3% at 93.25. The bid comes after Tuesday's early slide that pushed action to its lowest level in 16 months. Traders will be watching resistance in the 94.00 area entering Friday's jobs report. 7 BANKS HAVE AGREED TO SETTLE RATE-RIGGING CLAIMS. Bank of America, Barclays, Citigroup, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, JPMorgan Chase & Co., and Royal Bank of Scotland Group have agreed to pay $324 million to settle claims they participated in a conspiracy to rig the ISDAfix benchmark from 2009 to 2012. The suit, which was brought by several pension funds and municipalities, claimed that during that time the banks used chatrooms to fix the IDSAfix, a benchmark used to price swaps and interest-rate derivatives. HSBC, Morgan Stanley, BNP Paribas, Goldman Sachs, Nomura, UBS, Wells Fargo, and ICAP haven't yet settled their claims. ANHEUSER-BUSCH INBEV MISSED BIG ON EARNINGS. The world's largest brewer announced earnings of $0.51 a share, missing the Wall Street estimate of $0.87 by a wide margin. Revenue sank 10.1% versus a year ago to $9.40 billion, which was shy of the $9.56 billion anticipated by the Bloomberg consensus. Anheuser-Busch said beer volumes fell 1.4%, driven by weakness in Brazil. The stock is down 3.7% ahead of the opening bell. TAKATA COULD ANNOUNCE SIGNIFICANT RECALLS. Bloomberg reports that the airbag maker is in talks with US regulators, which could produce millions more recalls. Bloomberg, citing The Wall Street Journal, says 35 million more airbags could be recalled on top of the 28.8 million that already have been. At least 10 deaths have been attributed to the faulty devices, Bloomberg says. AEROPOSTALE HAS FILED FOR BANKRUPTCY. The teen retailer has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Reuters reports that a court filing shows that Aeropostale listed both assets and liabilities of $100 million to $500 million. STOCK MARKETS AROUND THE WORLD ARE LOWER. Australia's ASX (-1.5%) led the way lower overnight, and the Britain's FTSE (-1.2%) paces the decline in Europe. S&P 500 futures are down 14.25 points at 2,042.75. EARNINGS REPORTING REMAINS HEAVY. Priceline and Time Warner highlight the names releasing their quarterly results ahead of the opening bell. 21st Century Fox, Allstate, Kraft Heinz, MetLife, Prudential, Tesla Motors, and Whole Foods are among the companies reporting after markets close. US ECONOMIC DATA PICKS UP. ADP employment change will cross the wires at 8:15 a.m. ET ahead of productivity, unit labor costs, and the trade balance, which are all set for an 8:30 a.m. release. Then, at 10 a.m. ET, factory orders and ISM services will be announced. Data concludes with the 10:30 a.m. ET announcement of natural-gas inventories. The US 10-year yield is unchanged at 1.80%.

EU proposes extending border checks at internal Schengen frontiers

"There is still considerable migratory pressure at our external border, and large numbers of migrants present in Greece," the Commission Vice President Frans Timmermans said in a statement. "Therefore, as long as serious deficiencies in border management persist some internal border control measures should be maintained," he added.

EU proposes scheme to share out asylum seekers

[A boy sits next to an old statue outside the main building of the disused Hellenikon airport]By Gabriela Baczynska BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Commission proposed a system of distributing asylum seekers across the EU on Wednesday that aims to ease the load on frontline states like Greece and Italy but may face stiff resistance from governments in Eastern Europe. The European Union executive published legislative proposals to reform the so-called Dublin system of EU asylum rules that includes a "fairness mechanism" under which each of the 28 states would be assigned a percentage quota of all asylum seekers in the bloc that it would be expected to handle. Governments could refuse to take people in for a year a time if they paid another country to accommodate them.

TED CRUZ DROPS OUT

[ted cruz]Reuters/Charles Mostoller Sen. Ted Cruz suspended his presidential campaign on Tuesday following a crushing primary loss in Indiana to Donald Trump. In his concession speech on Tuesday night, Cruz made no mention of Trump, but told supporters that he no longer saw a clear path to secure the nomination. "Tonight, I'm sorry to say, it appears that path has been foreclosed," Cruz told supporters. "We left it all on the field, Indiana, we gave it everything we've got. But the voters chose another path," he added. Cruz's decision to exit the race essentially guarantees that Trump will secure the necessary number of delegates needed to clinch the Republican presidential nomination on the first ballot at the Republican National Convention in July. Ohio Gov. John Kasich said that he would remain in the race, but so far has won only his home state as well as a handful of delegates in other nominating contests. The senator campaigned vigorously in Indiana, where he hoped that more favorable demographics would help the him win a chunk of delegates. Cruz announced his potential vice-presidential running mate, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, in Indiana last week. He also made numerous retail stops, greeting supporters at five locations on Monday alone while his wife, Heidi Cruz, appeared at five separate stops without him. But as the primary neared, polls showed Trump pulling far ahead in the Hoosier State. The real-estate magnate unleashed his trademark harsh rhetoric in the final days against Cruz, whom he accused of being "crazy." "Ted does not have the temperament to be doing this," Trump said at a rally on Monday. "He's choking like a dog because he's losing so badly. We've got to put him away tomorrow, folks." Trump was more gracious in victory Tuesday night. During a victory speech at Trump Tower, he called Cruz "one hell of a competitor" who has an "amazing future."

Donald Trump just made his grand entrance into the general election

[Donald Trump]AP Photo/Mary Altaffer Donald Trump entered into general-election mode Tuesday night, seeking a pivot to unite the Republican Party against a common foe as it declared him its presumptive nominee. "We're going after Hillary Clinton," Trump said during a victory speech at Trump Tower in New York. "She will not be a great president. She will not be a good president. She will be a poor" president, he said of the Democratic frontrunner, his likely opponent in the general election. After winning the Indiana primary and delivering Ted Cruz a knockout punch out of the Republican race, Trump and the party he is now set to lead prepared for the road ahead. Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus called him the "presumptive nominee" and called for party unity on Tuesday. "@realDonaldTrump will be presumptive @GOP nominee, we all need to unite and focus on defeating @HillaryClinton," he tweeted shortly after Cruz announced he was leaving the race.  In a nod to the anti-Trump movement that branded itself as "#NeverTrump," Priebus added a hashtag: "#NeverClinton." For his part, Trump dropped the insults trademark to his campaign, congratulating Cruz on a race well run and calling him a "hell of a competitor." And he keyed in on Clinton in the victory speech from Trump Tower in New York. He "We're going to win big, and it's going to be America first," Trump said. "This country, which is very, very divided in so many different ways is going to become one beautiful and loving country," he later added. Trump now needs fewer than 200 delegates to secure the nomination ahead of the July convention after securing all of the 57 delegates up for grabs in Indiana. John Kasich, the Ohio governor, is the lone remaining candidate facing Trump in the Republican race, but he is currently running fourth in the delegate count. Clinton's campaign has already taken notice of Trump's now-imminent grasp on the Republican nomination. John Podesta, Clinton's campaign chair, delivered the campaign's first direct general-election shot at Trump. Podesta said Trump isn't prepared to keep the country safe and improve conditions for middle America. "Throughout this campaign, Donald Trump has demonstrated that he’s too divisive and lacks the temperament to lead our nation and the free world," Podesta wrote in a statement. "With so much at stake, Donald Trump is simply too big of a risk." "While Donald Trump seeks to bully and divide Americans, Hillary Clinton will unite us to create an economy that works for everyone," he later wrote.

Turkey approves law among final hurdles for EU visa deal

[Refugees wait for the arrival of officals at Nizip refugee camp near Gaziantep]Turkey's parliament has approved a law on setting up a panel to monitor discipline for law enforcement officials, one of the last hurdles remaining before the country wins visa-free access to Europe for its nationals. The 28-nation European Union depends on Ankara's cooperation to maintain a March pact that has helped stem the flow of refugees and migrants arriving from Turkey, from which more than a million people reached Greece and Italy last year. The European Commission is expected to declare on Wednesday that Turkey has broadly met the criteria for visa liberalisation and to ask European Union governments and the European Parliament to approve the decision by the end of June.
