Philip Morris’ place in the Indian tobacco space may be under threat. Foreign investment in cigarette makers has been outlawed in India since 2010. However, tobacco firms are still allowed to invest through technology collaborations, licensing agreements, and trading companies. This may change.

We like to go for things we believe in, over and over again, until we don't. Then we massively lose confidence causing a "run on the bank": everyone wants out at the same time, sometimes causing chaos and the demise of social constructs that might have been running along quite smoothly despite terrible flaws. One form of "bait and switch" is named after Carlo Ponzi, the charismatic immigrant from Italy, who arrived, like so many hopefuls, with nothing in his pocket but a dream to make millions. His bait was to offer a guaranteed investment in stamps (that were never acquired), and for a time his happy customers got double their money back within months, all paid from new investors. By the time confidence in his scheme was destroyed by a newspaper inquiry he was making $250k per day with plenty of mindless customers. When the game was up, new customers lost their shirts since there was no new money coming in with which to pay them.

Third, with the United States no longer the guarantor of the international world order, Europe paradoxically will seek deeper ties with the People's Republic of China to uphold the current system. This, to name a few, will include defending the World Trade Organization and the global free trading system ; the Iran deal , which Trump will likely abandon; the Paris Agreement on Climate Change which a Trump White House might also abandon; and the deeper integration of Europe--China was decidedly in favor of the United Kingdom remaining in the EU prior to the Brexit vote and has been a consistent supporter of the European integration process to facilitate Chinese investment in Europe. As a result of stronger Europe-China ties, human rights issues will likely be less discussed in international forums during the next four years. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

The Wells Fargo mess teaches a clear lesson which is that you get what you pay for. Specifically, you can talk yourself blue in the face about ethics, as many Wells Fargo managers did, but you can not send employees a clearer signal than their paycheck. The first reason this is important is that when organizations think about creating an ethical culture, they almost always ignore the organization's reward system. They print codes of conduct, mandate training and establish ethics hotlines. But if you are rewarding the wrong things, you will get the wrong behaviors. This is as true of the clerk at your local branch bank as it is of the top levels of an investment bank. Organizations signal what they really care about through their reward systems. Remember that the one corporate document every employee reads is their paycheck. The importance of this lesson goes well beyond ethics.

As a small business owner, you might think that your business isn't "important" enough to work with large brands, but that couldn't be further from the truth. In fact, large brands work with individuals and small business owners all the time. You just have to know how to partner with them. Below are some tips on how to do just that: 1. Expand Your Reach You might be a one person business, but your reach is exponential. Work hard to get a social media following and grow your numbers. Brands like to work with companies that have thousands of loyal followers. They just want a return on their investment, so if you can prove to them that you're a valuable influencer in your space, many of them will likely work with you. 2. Reach Out To Brands If you sit and wait for brands to approach you, it could take years for that to happen. However, it's never too early to reach out to the brands you love and want to represent.

Daniel Franks , Behavioural Ecologist and researcher on this team, explains, It's easy to think that an older female will pass on their genes better by continuing to give birth in late life... But our new work shows that if an old female killer whale reproduces, her late-life offspring suffer from being out-competed by her grandchildren. This, together with her investment in helping her grandchildren, can explain the evolution of menopause. It's important to note that female orcas start reproducing at approximately 15 years old and stop around 30 or 40. They then go on to live to around 90 years old, whereas males don't usually survive beyond their 30s. As a result, the grandmother orcas end up leading the pods, making them responsible for finding food and taking care of their entire extended families. Interestingly enough, orcas typically grow up without their fathers around, but their mothers remain attached to their pods.

First, we need to ally ourselves with and support Congress members, governors and attorney generals, as well as mayors and other city officials who believe in government of and for all people, not just the super-rich. The campaign to preserve and improve our government programs means developing a list of priorities and identifying champions in the House of Representatives and the Senate who will fight the worst outrageous budget and service cuts and promote compromise on issues where reasonable legislators can agree such as investment in our Infrastructure. It also means encouraging governors and mayors to make their voices heard in protest of bad legislation and in promoting some of their best state and city programs that could be models for other cities, states or the country. National and state nonprofit organizations as well as businesses and labor unions need to overcome their differences and join in a movement to protect our rights and the functioning of our governments.
