Dunkin 'Love Video bring Beyoncé en Dunkin Donuts saam

Dunkin 'Love Video bring Beyoncé en Dunkin Donuts saam

Anchondo saun rond in 'n swart rok op 'n strand en boots Beyonce se oorspronklike bewegings na van 'Drunk in Love'.

Nog 'n dag en nog 'n Beyoncé -parodievideo word virale. Hierdie keer is die parodievideo getiteld "Dunkin 'Love" en bevat internet -entertainers Reggie White en Adrian Anchondo 'n klaaglied oor die gebrek aan West Coast Dunkin' Donuts. Die video is amper 'n skoot-vir-skoot-nabootsing van die oorspronklike swart-en-wit "Drunk in Love" liefdesfeest/strandpose-video.

Sommige van die slimste oomblikke van die video sluit in Anchondo wat in 'n swart rok en 'n pruik op die strand kronkel en sing: 'Hoekom kan ek jou nie op die Weskus hê nie, ek wil jou nou hê // You got them munchkins, munckins dunkin '// Ek wil jou hê, nee, ek kan nie my oë van die wors -patty, dunkin' liefde afhou nie. " Intussen gee Reggie White se "Jay-Z" sy liefde vir Dunkin 'aan terwyl hy 'n hele "Box O' Joe" op homself gooi in slow-mo.

Kyk hier na die skreeusnaakse parodie:

En terwyl u besig is, vergelyk "Dunkin 'Love" met die gewilde oorspronklike treffer Beyoncé en Jay-Z:

Psst! Anchondo en White hoef nie te veel langer te wag nie. Dunkin 'Donuts beplan uitgebrei na die Weskus in 2015.


'N Versameling van die mees intense beroemdheidsvetes!

Hou van hulle of haat hulle, beroemdhede is 'n groot deel van die popkultuur, terwyl ons hul beproewings en beproewings volg wat deur Hollywood beweeg. Soveel as wat ons graag wil hoor oor verskillende triomfante van beroemdhede, kan ons ook nie help om 'n bietjie behep te wees met 'n groot hoeveelheid drama nie.

Terwyl baie bekendes vol persoonlike drama is, was daar ook oor die jare 'n groot hoeveelheid beroemdheidsvetes met mekaar, en dit is dan wanneer dinge regtig kwaad en sappig raak!

Ons het 'n versameling van die mees erkende (en mees gepraat) beroemdheidsfeeste van alle tye nagekom vir u leesgenot. Laat weet ons gerus as daar ander goeie dinge is wat u voel ons dalk gemis het!

Een van die berugste beroemdheidsvetes het plaasgevind tussen die aktrises Bette Davis en Joan Crawford, en dit het regtig lelik geword. Hul vete het begin toe Joan Crawford, wat destyds bekend was as 'n silwer skerm sirene, met haar mede-akteur Franchot Tone begin uitgaan het, wat toevallig die hoofrol was in die rol van Bette Davis in die film "Dangerous".

Dit lyk asof die Davis 'n bietjie verlief was op Tone, maar hy het uiteindelik Crawford gekies, met wie hy gou getroud is nadat die verfilming toegedraai is. Dit was op daardie stadium dat die vete begin het! Die twee was net haatdraend teenoor mekaar, het in die pers heen en weer gesluip en selfs so ver gegaan as 'n poging om 'n Oscar -benoeming vir Davis te verwoes.

Toe Davis in 1963 vir 'n Oscar genomineer word vir haar rol in "Whatever Happened To Baby Jane", wat ook toevallig ook Crawford vertolk het, het Crawford met die ander genomineerdes gereël om die toekenning namens hulle in te samel. Akademie se knou. Anne Bancroft wen, en Crawford lees haar toespraak vir haar, terwyl Davis agter die verhoog kyk.

Alhoewel sommige beroemdheidsvetes tot 'n oplossing kan kom, duur die vete tussen Davis en Crawford 'n leeftyd. Toe Crawford verneem dat Davis oorlede is, word daar gesê: 'U moet nooit slegte dinge oor die dooies sê nie, u moet net goed sê. Joan Crawford is dood. Goed! ” Ai!

'N Ander berugte beroemdheidswete uit die verlede was tussen die suster -aktrises Olivia de Havilland en Joan Fontaine. Dit was 'n klassieke geval van wedywering tussen broers en susters tussen die twee wat in 1935 begin het toe Olivia haar eerste groot rol in Hollywood vertolk het en Fontaine later haar eerste groot rol in 1937 gevolg het. nog een oor rolprente, liefhebbers, vriende en toekennings vir die res van hul lewens.

Die twis tussen die twee tref die ergste punt toe Fontaine gedwing is om die van van haar stiefpa te neem, aangesien daar te veel de Havilland's in Hollywood was. Sy het uiteindelik haar suster verslaan vir 'n Oscar -oorwinning, maar toe de Havilland uiteindelik wen, snuif sy haar suster toe sy probeer om haar geluk te wens en dit word beroemd op film vasgelê.

Dit is te betwyfel of hul vete ooit opgelos is, soos Fontaine oor die jare in die openbaar gesê het dat daar werklik geen 'vete' was nie, maar net normale wedywering tussen broers en susters. Sy beweer dat hulle nooit harde woorde gedeel het of 'n rusie gehad het nie en die meeste van die sogenaamde vete is deur die media geskep.

Aktrise Debbie Reynolds en haar jarelange vriendin, aktrise Elizabeth Taylor, het die nuus gekry toe die derde man, Taylor Todd, tragies in 1958 in 'n vliegtuigongeluk oorlede is. so toevallig destyds met Reynolds getroud.

Fisher het uiteindelik Reynolds na Taylor verlaat en die twee het eers 'n jaar later weer getrou! Dit is beslis 'n manier om 'n vriendskap te beëindig! Fisher het Reynolds as 'n enkelma verlaat om hul twee kinders, Carrie en Todd, groot te maak.

Uiteindelik het Reynolds en Taylor hul vete in 1966 reggestel toe hulle uiteindelik op dieselfde vloer van die seestrand van Queen Elizabeth gebly het. Die paartjie het selfs 'n rol gespeel in 'n film saam genaamd "These Old Broads" onder regie van Reynold se dogter wyle Carrie Fisher.

In meer onlangse jare was daar 'n epiese mate van wedywering op die musiekkaarte tussen die ikone Michael Jackson en Prince. Toe hul albums in 1982 die nommer een -plek behaal, was die vete beslis aan die gang! Prince lyk nie tevrede met die aantrekkingskrag van die hoofstroom van Michael Jackson nie, terwyl Jackson 'n plesier vir die kunstenaar van Prince sou maak.

Prince weier 'n rol in die musiekvideo vir Michael Jackson se "Bad" wat later na die akteur Wesley Snipes gegaan het en in 'n oomblik van uiterste kleinigheid het Prince na bewering sy bas direk in Jackson se gesig gespeel tydens 'n lewendige konsertvertoning.

Dit is nie bekend of die twee ooit hul geskille opgelos het nie, maar toe Prince hoor dat Jackson oorlede is, het hy gesê dat hy Paisley Park afgesluit het en homself dae lank in sy slaapkamer toegesluit het om te treur. Dit lyk asof hulle tog respek vir mekaar as kunstenaar gehad het.

Ander berugte musiekvetes wat genoem moet word in die vete tussen die sangeres Taylor Swift en die rapper Kanye West en sy vrou Kim Kardashian-West. Kayne West begin die vete toe hy op die verhoog spring en Swift se aanvaardingstoespraak onderbreek vir die wen van die beste vroulike video by die MTV Video Music Awards in 2009. West gryp die mikrofoon en vertel almal dat Beyonce eerder moes gewen het.

West het ook 'n skelm verwysing na Swift gemaak in sy liedjie "Famous" waartydens hy sinspeel dat sy by hom sou slaap. Swift beweer dat hy nie geweet het dat die frase in die liedjie gebruik sou word nie, maar Kayne se vrou, Kim Kardashian, het later 'n opname van 'n telefoongesprek tussen West en Swift vrygestel, toe sy haar seën gegee het om die liriek te gebruik.

Sover ons weet, moet hierdie vete nog opgelos word, en beide West en Swift gaan steeds liries met mekaar deur hul musiek.

Taylor Swift het ook berug geraak met die popsangeres Katy Perry. Terwyl die twee voorheen BFF's was, lyk dit asof Perry agter Swift se rug gegaan het en probeer het om 'n paar bemanningslede onder haar te huur tydens haar 'RED' stadiontoer. Die bemanning het uiteindelik met Perry gegaan, en dit is wat die vuur aan die brand gesteek het.

Swift het 'n onderhoud aan Rolling Stone gegee en beweer dat Perry 'iets so aakliks' gedoen het dat hulle nou 'opregte vyande' was en dat dit nie eers 'n seun was nie! Sy het Perry nooit by die naam genoem nie, maar almal kon twee en twee bymekaarmaak, veral nadat Perry 'n kriptiese tweet geplaas het waarin sy volgelinge aangemoedig is om 'op te let vir die Regina George in skaapsklere', met verwysing na die boosaardige karakter uit die film 'Mean Girls' ”.

Blykbaar duur hierdie vete ook nog voort, aangesien Perry selfs 'n Snapchat van haarself gepos het wat dans na die Kayne West -liedjie "Famous" en 'n gesigsein gee toe die Taylor Swift -liriek verskyn!

Aktrise Gwyneth Paltrow en huishoudelike ghoeroe Martha Stewart gooi ook oor die jare hul redelike mate van skaduwee, terwyl Martha Stewart begin plesier het by Paltrow se "GOOP" publikasie. Sy het gesê dat Paltrow by toneelspel moet bly.

Hulle gooi mekaar op die bladsye van hul onderskeie publikasies toe Stewart 'n artikel oor pasteie publiseer en dit 'A Conscious Coupling' noem, 'n opgrawing by Paltrow se 'Conscious Uncoupling' saam met Coldplay -sanger Chris Martin. Paltrow het toe teruggekeer na die publikasie van 'n artikel met die titel "Jailbird Cake" om Stewart se tyd agter tralies deur te bring.

Die afgelope tyd was alles stil tussen die twee, maar ons twyfel of hulle hul probleme ooit heeltemal opgelos het.

Ons dink nie iemand sal ooit die berugte Twitter -oorlog tussen president Donald Trump en die aktrise Rosie O'Donnell vergeet nie. O'Donnell het Trump gekritiseer omdat hy versuim het om juffrou USA Tara Conner af te dank ondanks haar erkenning van onwettige dwelm- en alkoholmisbruik.

Trump het op Twitter gespring en 'n paar gruwelike beledigings by O'Donnell getwiet en haar '' 'n ware verloorder '' en '' 'n vark '' genoem. Tydens die debatte in die aanloop tot die presidentsverkiesing is O'Donnell weer opgevoed met Trump wat gesê het dat niemand O'Donnell jammer kry nie en dat sy sy harde kommentaar verdien. O ”Donnell beweer dat sy nog nooit in haar lewe meer geboelie gevoel het nie.

Tot vandag toe gaan hul vete steeds voort, en O'Donnell bly Trump kritiseer via sosiale media.

En uiteindelik het een van die grootste beroemdheidsvetes plaasgevind tussen rappers Tupac Shakur en Biggie Smalls, ook bekend as Notorious B.I.G. wat geëindig het in die tragiese dood van albei rap -supersterre. Die twis het begin toe Tupac in 1994 in die voorportaal van 'n opnamestudio in New York beroof en geskiet is. Daar word beweer dat Biggie ongeveer 'n week voor die tyd van die voorval geweet het, so dit is na bewering beplan.

Dit het die beroemde stryd tussen die Ooskus en die Weskus begin, wat jare lank die gesig van hip-hop-musiek gevorm het. Volgens Time Magazine het die vete sy hoogtepunt bereik tydens die Bron-toekennings van 1995, terwyl daar geen fisiese stryd tussen Tupac en Biggie plaasgevind het nie, maar daar is lyne tussen albei hul onderskeie spanne getoon wat wys hoe diep die wedywering tussen die twee rappers is en wat hulle verteenwoordig was. Die hoogtepunt van die aand was die berugte toespraak van Suge Knight oor Death Row Records (Tupac se etiket) wat Diddy en Bad Boy Records (Biggie se etiket) skynbaar in die wiele gery het. Op 'n stadium tydens die seremonie het Tupac se vriend Snoop Dogg die Ooskus uitgeroep "Die ooskus het nie liefde vir dr. Dre en Snoop Dogg nie?") Terwyl Diddy dit verdedig ("ek woon in die ooste en ek gaan in die ooste sterf"). "

Die twis tussen die twee rappers is nooit herstel nie en hulle het tot hul ontydige dood aanhou om mekaar deur middel van hul musiek te onderskei. Tupac is in Las Vegas doodgeskiet en Biggie is 'n jaar later dood. U sou dink dat hulle beesvleis saam met hulle sou gesterf het, maar die stryd aan die ooskus/weskus floreer steeds.

Wel, mense, daar is 'n samestelling van 'n paar van die erger beroemdheidsvetes van alle tye. Ons moet 'n paar eerbare vermeldings inbring, soos die vete tussen Tom Cruise en Brook Shields oor die gebruik van antidepressante en postpartum depressie, Heather Locklear en Denise Richards wat veg oor Richie Sambora en Charlie Sheen en natuurlik boksers Mohammad Ali en Joe Frazier.

Borrelrisiko's toets China se verbintenis tot geen skerp omkeerbeleid nie

(Bloomberg) - Ten spyte van Beijing se beste pogings, vorm bateborrels in China, huispryse styg, wat amptenare dwing om die idee van 'n nasionale eiendomsbelasting te laat herleef. 'N Styging in grondstofpryse het beloftes aangespoor om die binnelandse aanbod te verhoog, die marktoestand te verskerp en spekulasie en hamstering te bekamp. - iets wat die People's Bank of China gesê het dat dit sal vermy. Die risiko is dat die regering se pogings om prysstygings hok te slaan, nie genoeg is nie, wat die hand van die sentrale bank op 'n kwesbare tyd vir binnelandse verbruik dwing. Die opbrengs van 10-jaar-staatseffekte het tot die laagste vlak in agt maande gedaal, terwyl die CSI 300-indeks die laagste is sedert Januarie. Die kalmte kontrasteer met die res van die wêreld, waar beleggers al hoe meer obsessief raak oor hoe sentrale banke kan reageer op die bedreiging van 'n oorverhitting van die wêreldekonomie. ' 'n uitdaging vir die Chinese regering, 'sê Zhou Hao, 'n ekonoom van Commerzbank AG in Singapoer. Meer as 15 maande nadat die pandemie China die eerste keer gedwing het om tariewe te verlaag en biljoene yuan in die finansiële stelsel te spuit, is beleidsmakers in Beijing - soos baie ander oor die hele wêreld - wat die nadraai hanteer. Namate die wêreldwye ekonomiese herstel versnel, word sommige gedwing om op te tree weens inflasie: Brasilië het in Maart die eerste groep van 20 lande geword wat leenkoste verhoog het, met Turkye en Rusland. Selfs Ysland het in Mei 'n korttermynkoers verhoog, en ander, soos die Federale Reserweraad en die Europese Sentrale Bank, het daarop aangedring dat prysstygings slegs tydelik is. Die PBOC het ook inflasiebekommernisse verminder in sy monetêre verslag oor die eerste kwartaal, gepubliseer kort nadat data toon dat fabriekspryse in April met 6,8% gestyg het-die vinnigste pas sedert 2017. Wat Bloomberg-ekonome sê. 'Dit sal 'n uitdaging vir China wees om stygende produsentepryse te bevat omdat min produkte in die land geprys word. Daar is nie veel wat China kan doen nie, en selfs die verskerping van die monetêre beleid sal die situasie nie kan verander nie, 'het David Qu, 'n ekonoom van China by Bloomberg Economics gesê. Die afgelope paar dae kan 'n voortsetting van winste maatskappye druk om stygende koste deur te gee aan verbruikers, wat reeds minder bestee as wat verwag is. Ontleders van Huachuang Securities Co. het in 'n verslag van 9 Mei gesê dat pryse van verbruikersgoedere, soos huishoudelike toestelle en meubels, sowel as elektriese voertuie en voedsel, styg. Tog is daar min bewyse van vraaggedrewe druk, met kerninflasie, wat onbestendige voedsel- en energiekoste uit die weg ruim, redelik gedemp.Die bedreiging van inflasie-tesame met 'n brose ekonomie-is gewoonlik slegte nuus vir aandele omdat dit erodeer korporatiewe winste, en vir effekte verminder dit die waarde van toekomstige kontantvloei. Die versnelde pryse het China se effektemark in 2019 gestyg en het bygedra tot 'n skerp verkoop in aandele vroeg in 2016. In 'n teken van hoe ernstig die bedreiging geneem word, het die kabinet van China gesê dat daar meer moeite gedoen moet word om die stygende kommoditeitspryse aan te pak. 'N Amptenaar van die PBOC het gesê dat China die yuan moet toelaat om dit te waardeer om die impak van stygende invoerpryse te vergoed, volgens 'n artikel wat Vrydag gepubliseer is. Die geldeenheid verhandel naby 'n byna drie jaar hoogtepunt teenoor die dollar. Ingevoerde inflasie is 'n hoofpyn vir die leiers van China wat reeds die risiko's hanteer wat veroorsaak word deur 'n toename in kapitaalinvloei. In onlangse jare het Beijing beleggingskanale oopgemaak om meer geld in sy finansiële stelsel toe te laat. Die doel was om buitelandse instellings se heffing te gebruik om sy markte te veranker en sy geldeenheid te stabiliseer, maar die rekord likiditeit wat deur die wêreldwye sentrale banke ontketen is in die nasleep van die pandemie, druk nou pryse in China onder druk. Die hoogste sekuriteitsreguleerder, Yi Huiman, het in Maart gesê groot strome "warm geld" na China moet streng beheer word. Dieselfde maand het die bankreguleerder, Guo Shuqing, gesê dat hy 'baie bekommerd' is dat bate op buitelandse markte binnekort sal bars en 'n risiko vir die wêreldekonomie inhou. Chinese beleidmakers moet worstel. Op die oomblik blyk die huidige benadering van Beijing om kakebeen, die bevordering van die aanbod en die bestraffing van spekulasie te rig, op die eersgenoemde gerig te wees. groot impak op verbruikerspryse, ”sê Raymond Yeung, hoofekonoom van Greater China in Australië en New Zealand Banking Group Ltd. dit is beskikbaar op bloomberg.com Teken nou in om voor te bly met die betroubaarste nuusbron vir sake. © 2021 Bloomberg LP

(Bloomberg) - Die voormalige Amerikaanse tesourie -sekretaris, Lawrence Summers, het gesê kripto -geldeenhede kan 'n kenmerk van die wêreldmarkte bly as iets wat soortgelyk is aan 'digitaal goud', selfs al bly hul belangrikheid in die ekonomieë beperk. Aan die einde van 'n week waarin Bitcoin sweep , Het Summers aan Bloomberg Television se "Wall Street Week" met David Westin gesê dat kripto-geldeenhede 'n alternatief vir goud bied vir diegene wat 'n bate soek "afsonderlik en afgesien van die daaglikse werking van regerings." "Goud was 'n primêre bate daarvan lank, ”sê Summers, 'n betaalde bydraer aan Bloomberg. "Crypto het 'n kans om 'n ooreengekome vorm te word waarin mense wat op soek is na veiligheid rykdom het. My raaiskoot is dat crypto hier is om te bly, en waarskynlik hier om te bly as 'n soort digitale goud." As kriptokurwes selfs 'n derde geword het van die totale waarde van goud, het Summers gesê dat dit 'n "aansienlike waardering van huidige vlakke" sou wees, en dit beteken dat daar 'n "goeie vooruitsig is dat kripto nog 'n rukkie deel van die stelsel sal wees." Bitcoin vergelyk met die geel metaal Yassine Elmandjra, kripto -ontleder van Cathie Wood's Ark Investment Management LLC, het vroeër vandeesmaand gesê dat as goud 'n markwaarde het van ongeveer $ 10 biljoen, "is dit nie uit die vraag nie dat Bitcoin in die volgende vyf jaar goudpariteit sal bereik." Met Bitcoin se markkapitalisasie van ongeveer $ 700 miljard, kan dit 'n styging in die prys van ongeveer 14-voudige of meer beteken, maar Summers het gesê dat kripto-geldeenhede nie vir die algemene ekonomie saak maak nie en dat dit onwaarskynlik is dat dit ooit as 'n meerderheid van die betalings sal dien. direkteure van Square Inc. Die maatskappy het hierdie maand gesê dat die verkope in die eerste kwartaal meer as verdriedubbel het, aangedryf deur die stygende Bitcoin -aankope deur die Cash App van die onderneming. ruil of stabiele koopkrag, maar het gesê dat sommige vorme daarvan moontlik steeds as 'n alternatief vir goud kan bestaan. Nie noodwendig nie, ”het Krugman in die New York Times geskryf. 'Een feit wat selfs kripto -skeptici soos ek 'n blaaskans gee, is die duursaamheid van goud as 'n waardevolle bate.' Summers het ook gesê dat die administrasie van president Joe Biden in die 'regte rigting' gaan deur maatskappye te vra om meer belasting te betaal. Hy het aangevoer dat beleidsmakers in die verlede nie skuldig was aan die nakoming van 'te veel antitrust' -regulasies nie, hoewel hy gewaarsku het dat dit' erg verkeerd 'sou wees om na maatskappye te kyk net vanweë die toename in markaandeel en winste. risks overheating, Summers said the Federal Reserve should be more aware of the inflationary threat.“I don't think the Fed is projecting in a way that reflects the potential seriousness of the problem,” he said. “I am concerned that with everything that’s going on, the economy may be a bit charging toward a wall.”(Adds Summers is on Square’s board in 8th paragraph)More stories like this are available on bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

Global Rebound Euphoria Tests Central Bankers’ Nerves on Risk

(Bloomberg) -- With the world barely through the worst of an unprecedented crisis, central bankers are already wondering if the next one is around the corner.From Washington to Frankfurt, what began months ago as a murmur of concern has morphed into a chorus as officials ask if a risk-taking binge across multiple asset markets might presage a destabilizing rout that could derail the global recovery.Just last week, the European Central Bank and the Bank of Canada cited mounting threats, cognizant of the retrenchment that ensued during the 2008 financial crisis. Meanwhile Bitcoin’s dramatic swings after a warning about cryptocurrencies from the People’s Bank of China showcased how sensitive some markets have become.Pessimists at global monetary institutions can find bubbles almost anywhere they look, from equities to real estate, while officials such as Federal Reserve chief Jerome Powell argue any threats remain contained.Central banks bear some responsibility for financial-market fervor after huge doses of stimulus and liquidity injections to keep economies afloat. The resulting buoyancy is at least partly a euphoria effect, applauding a snap back in growth whose scope can only be guessed at -- with eventual repercussions judged to range from a benign boom to an inflationary spiral.“Where we do see more exuberance is around growth expectations,” Max Kettner, a strategist at HSBC Holdings Plc, told Bloomberg Television. “Particularly in the U.S. they’ve been raised to an enormous degree. So that is, I think, the exuberance.”Market speculation has led to heavy volatility of late, including wild girations and drops in Bitcoin from an all-time high above $60,000 in April. More traditional assets are struggling too, with rates on haven German bonds, for example, climbing around 50 basis points this year, closing in on breaking into positive territory for the first time in more than two years.Kettner’s mention of “exuberance” followed the European Central Bank’s use of similar words on Wednesday, echoing former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan’s 1996 observation of “irrational exuberance” before the dotcom bubble.The euro-zone institution observed the threat of economic spillovers from, for example, a U.S. equity-market correction. Bank of Canada officials voiced similar concerns a day later, and highlighted the housing market as expectations of continuing price increases fuel purchases.Three weeks earlier, a Fed policy meeting veered into a debate on stability, where participants observed “elevated” risk appetite and discussed dangers posed by hedge fund activity. In a subsequent report, they warned of “vulnerabilities” and “stretched valuations,” exacerbated by high corporate debt.Meanwhile Bank of England Governor Andrew Bailey recently wondered aloud if speculation in stocks and Bitcoin might themselves be a “warning sign.” And a Norwegian official said that cryptocurrency volatility could threaten lenders if their exposures keep rising.Central banks have had nagging concerns for a while. Already in January, ECB markets chief Isabel Schnabel told colleagues that stocks could become vulnerable to “more broad-based repricing.”In China, with a recovery cycle more advanced than the U.S.’s, the top banking regulator revealed in March that he was “very worried” about bubbles, specifying “very dangerous” real-estate investing.That might be partly what UBS AG Chief Executive Officer Ralph Hamers had in mind in late April with his own alarming view. Noting “bubbles in some asset classes,” including real estate, he told Bloomberg Television that “we are getting close to the peak of things.”Some senior central bankers are trying to be sanguine despite flashing warning lights. After the Fed decision in April, Powell insisted that “the overall financial stability picture is mixed but on balance, it’s manageable.”ECB Vice President Luis De Guindos -- whose job includes preparing his institution’s threat assessment -- dialed down from its worried tone last week by saying economic risks are “much more balanced than in the past.”The difficulty for central banks is in managing the consequences for asset prices of their monetary policies, a challenge that has bedeviled them since the 2008 calamity. Periodically, that makes institutions such as the Fed the target of criticism.“Central banks are desperately wanting to make sure, be certain,” said James Athey, investment director at Aberdeen Asset Management Plc. “It also means they keep policy way too easy for way too long.”The alternative officials face is to dare to wind down stimulus, taking on the risk of choking an economic recovery with a corresponding cost to livelihoods.Iceland took that plunge last week, delivering the first policy tightening in Western Europe with an interest-rate increase to contain inflation and a rampant housing market.The larger euro area, whose constituent regions vary from some of the world’s most prosperous to examples of perennial malaise, can’t be so nimble. That’s why the ECB recommends “more targeted” fiscal support for companies while avoiding stimulus withdrawal.Similarly, the Fed cited use of macroprudential tools as important to allow monetary policy to take its course. JPMorgan economists wrote this month that they anticipate Australia’s banking regulator will “formalize” debt and loan-to-income restrictions soon.However central banks and financial regulators respond to ebullience, they know the stakes are as high as ever, with the need to cement a rebound from a severe crisis in a world which will struggle to tolerate another one.At least officials can take comfort in recognizing a more familiar pre-pandemic environment: The last time their worries about risk were so synchronized was in November 2019, just weeks before the coronavirus began to cripple the global economy.More stories like this are available on bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

Away From the Big Crypto Blaze, Another Market Tension Eases

(Bloomberg) -- A bear market in Bitcoin. A bull market in Bitcoin. Taper talk, or talk thereof. The biggest pop for meme stocks of the season. A lot just happened, and yet when the history of this week is written, it’s possible a much quieter development will be the lead.After intensifying earlier this month, inflation anxiety appears to be easing. Rates on 10-year breakevens dropped by the most on a weekly basis since September, capping any rise in Treasury yields. Meanwhile, a surge in raw materials continued to sputter, with the Bloomberg Commodity Spot Index sinking for a second straight week.That was enough to comfort investors in big tech. The Nasdaq 100 posted its first weekly gain in over a month, after being rattled by warnings that soaring prices would eat into future cash flows and shine a harsh light on expensive valuations. And while minutes from the Federal Reserve’s April meeting signaled an openness to discussing a scaling back of asset purchases, comments that it would “likely be some time” until the economy recovers to that point helped prevent any knee-jerk reactions.“Inflation is really only a problem for stocks if it’s going to bring the Fed off the sidelines,” said Brian Nick, chief investment strategist at Nuveen. “If you see interest rates falling, if you see inflation expectations receding, if you see the Fed continuing to come out with overall dovish minutes, it tends to be a pretty friendly environment for tech.”Whether or not the U.S. economy has seen peak growth, a series of weaker-than-expected reports have helped quell inflation fears. Last month’s housing starts were lower than anticipated, while the pace of mortgage applications slowed from the prior month. On Thursday, data from the Philadelphia Fed showed manufacturing activity in the region eased in May from a 48-year high the prior month.As a result, Citigroup Inc.’s economic surprise gauge -- which measures the magnitude to which reports either beat or miss forecasts -- briefly dropped into negative territory for the first time since June 2020 this week.The Nasdaq 100 held onto a 0.1% gain this week as inflation expectations ebbed, snapping a four-week losing streak. Tech eked out a gain as cryptocurrencies ricocheted, with Bitcoin dropping 12% on Friday alone after China reiterated its intent to to crack down on mining.Still, some warn that it’s too early to signal the all-clear on inflation risks. Anxiety around price pressures in the coming months should be a boon for defensive sectors and particularly favor financials, while eating into growth stocks with duration-sensitive cash flows, according to State Street Global Advisors.“Because there’s so much disagreement on how inflation may unfold, that disagreement in the market will inevitably lead to volatility,” said Olivia Engel, chief investment officer of SSGA’s active quantitative equity team. “If you look at the aggregate market, it’s hiding some of that market rotation -- that’s where you can see much bigger moves.”(Updates Bitcoin price in seventh paragraph.)More stories like this are available on bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

Musk says he supports crypto in battle with fiat money

Musk has previously compared bitcoin to fiat money and often tweets about cryptocurrencies that have sent values for bitcoin and the meme digital currency dogecoin up and down. In February, bitcoin shot higher after Tesla revealed it had bought $1.5 billion of the cryptocurrency and would soon accept it as a form of payment for cars.

Dunkin’ and Harpoon Launch Donut-Infused Beers for Fall

Harpoon Brewery and Dunkin’ are at it again, launching a series of new coffee and—for the first time—donut-infused beers for fall. A trio of new beers, Harpoon Dunkin’ Pumpkin Spiced Latte Ale, Boston Kreme Stout, and Jelly Donut IPA, join Harpoon Dunkin’ Coffee Porter on shelves this September and mark the first time beers have been brewed with actual donuts from Dunkin’.

After the extremely positive reaction the Harpoon Dunkin’ Coffee Porter received from fans for two consecutive seasons, the brewers at Harpoon took it a step further to see what would happen if they brewed a beer made with Dunkin’s famous donuts, creating a new lineup that celebrates classic fall coffee and donut flavors:

Harpoon Dunkin’ Pumpkin | Inspired by everyone’s favorite fall pumpkin latte, this “Spiced Latte Ale” is brewed with real pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices, and a splash of coffee. Light in color and easy-drinking, it’s a perfect blend of all the autumn flavors we love, with just a touch of espresso-like roast! ABV: 5.2%

Harpoon Dunkin’ Boston Kreme | This “Boston Kreme Stout” is brewed with real Dunkin’ donuts and cacao nibs, which add extra dough-like and chocolatey notes to an easy-drinking, creamy Dry Irish Stout. ABV: 4.3%

Harpoon Dunkin’ Jelly Donut | Brewed with real Dunkin’ donuts and raspberry purée, this slightly hazy IPA has bright notes of jelly and citrus from the addition of fruit-forward Hüll Melon and Citra hops. ABV: 5.7%

Harpoon Dunkin’ Coffee Porter | Harpoon’s first ever tribute to the Dunkin’ coffee that has helped keep Harpoon brewers running, this classic American Porter combines malty notes of chocolate, caramel, and toffee with the comforting and familiar flavor of Dunkin’ Original Blend coffee. ABV: 6.0%

“We’re excited to elevate our collaboration with Harpoon this fall with the introduction of Harpoon Dunkin’ Pumpkin beer and the first ever Harpoon beer made with real Dunkin’ donuts,” says Brian Gilbert, Vice President of Retail Business Development at Dunkin’. “We have no doubt the new donut brews, along with the rest of this new fall lineup, will bring the same moments of sweetness and smiles our coffee and donuts have created for 70 years.”

“After more than two years and three seasons of collaborating with the Dunkin’ team, our fans have come to expect a delicious fall beer from us, but we wanted to give them something extra special this year,” adds Dan Kenary, Harpoon CEO and co-founder. “Our brewers have always been master innovators, but brewing beer made with real donuts was a first even for them. It’s hard to pick a favorite of the four recipes – just like it’s hard to pick a favorite donut from Dunkin’ – but we hope both our and Dunkin’s fans have a blast trying.”

Harpoon Dunkin’ Pumpkin will be available on draft and in bottled 6-packs as well as in the new Harpoon Dunkin’ Dozen mix pack, which features 3 cans of each seasonal beer flavor. These limited releases will be available everywhere Harpoon is sold beginning in September.


You Can Now Paint Your Home in Dunkin’s Iconic Orange and Pink Colors

In an unexpected collaboration, the hues made famous by Dunkin’ are now Backdrop paint colors.

Dunkin’ and Backdrop, an online paint retailer, have teamed up to create a collection of paints modeled after the famous orange and pink shades the fast-food chain is known for. The two limited-edition paints are designed for indoor use only and are now available in half gallons for $39 exclusively on Backdrop’s website.

According to a press release, the Dunkin’ and Backdrop teams worked together to ensure that each can of paint matches the brand's iconic hues. Additionally, this collaboration marks the first time Backdrop has offered half gallons of their recyclable, stainless steel cans, since the bold Dunkin’-inspired shades are perfect for an accent wall or playful shape.

If you’re interested in getting your hands on some of this brightly colored magic, you better act soon, as there are only a limited number of orange and pink paint cans available for purchase.

Dunkin' Pink (Half Gallon)

Per Jamie Kelly, the associate manager of strategic partnerships at Dunkin’, the idea to create a paint collection stemmed from the rise in home improvement projects seen over the past several months in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. “Our fans have absolutely loved the fresh new ways we've helped them show their Dunkin’ passion and pride over the years,” she said in a statement. “With home improvements on the rise this year, we’re thrilled to team up with Backdrop to give Dunkin' devotees the opportunity to really bring home their love for our brand with a fresh coat of paint for the ultimate home décor.”

What’s more? The Backdrop team hinted that there could be more Dunkin’ paint collaborations to come. “Dunkin’ is an iconic American brand and we couldn't be more thrilled to launch their first paint colors,” Backdrop co-founder Natalie Ebel explained. “The sensorial overlap between donuts and icing and sprinkles and paint, combined with Dunkin’s vibrant brand colors make for the perfect collaboration. We hope brand fans have just as much fun bringing these colors to life in their homes as we did creating them.”


Dunkin' Sprints Into the Future

It seemed like an April Fools’ joke. Only it wasn’t—just a headline-grabbing jolt of marketing genius.

In the lead-up to April’s Boston Marathon, one of the globe’s most treasured sporting events, Dunkin’ Donuts teamed with running footwear and apparel company Saucony to release a limited-edition Dunkin’ Donuts–branded running shoe.

Featuring Dunkin’s characteristic orange and pink hues, the Saucony x Dunkin’ Kinvara 9 included the vibrant image of a strawberry-frosted doughnut with orange, magenta, and chocolate-colored sprinkles pictures of Dunkin’ beverages on the insoles and the quick-service concept’s “America runs on Dunkin’” tagline printed vertically down the heel.

A viral hit, the shoe quickly sold out while generating abundant attention on social media, running forums, and tastemaker blogs and publications.

While a collaboration between a running shoe brand and a doughnut-peddling conglomerate wouldn’t seem the most natural of partnerships, Dunkin’ Donuts knows plenty about forward momentum.

Last year, the company added 280 units to its system, raising its total store count to 12,538 and propelling system-wide sales to nearly $9.2 billion. Those rising gains compel Dunkin’ Donuts chief marketing officer Tony Weisman to use but one word when describing the state of the Dunkin’ Donuts enterprise: “Energetic.”

“There’s never been a better time to be part of the Dunkin’ Donuts brand, and we’re excited about our brand’s future,” Weisman says.

There’s certainly reason for optimism and enthusiasm to reign at Dunkin’s corporate office on the outskirts of Boston. Though admittedly facing challenges in a hyper-competitive environment, Dunkin’ has positioned itself well for the years ahead with a slew of innovative products, accelerating digital initiatives, and a dynamic new restaurant prototype designed around convenience and marketplace relevance.

“Dunkin’ has a lot in its pipeline that sets the stage for improvement on the same-store sales and traffic fronts,” says Morningstar senior restaurant analyst R.J. Hottovy.

Today’s Dunkin’ Donuts menu reflects its rejuvenated, uber-focused mindset on the contemporary consumer and system-wide success. Over the last year, Dunkin’ has worked to simplify its menu, ridding stores of slow-moving, complex, and off-strategy items and slimming its menu by about 10 percent.

“As they were searching for answers to drive growth [in past years], they expanded their menu out and made it more difficult than it needed to be,” BMO Capital Markets analyst Andrew Strelzik says of Dunkin’.

Though Dunkin’ executives cited the menu simplification efforts as the reason for a recent slide in transactions and sales, it was largely considered short-term pain for long-term gain. Now active in all of its U.S. restaurants, Dunkin’s simplified menu has spurred labor savings and allowed staff added opportunity to focus on the guest experience.

“We’re pleased with the results to date,” Weisman says. “In addition to faster, more accurate service and a more consistent consumer experience from store to store, menu simplification allows us to make room for future menu innovations.”

And innovate Dunkin’ will. In recent months, the chain has unveiled clever LTOs ranging from last May’s Royal Love Donut celebrating the nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to Girl Scout Cookie–flavored beverages, as well as new espresso products and extensions to its premium tea and frozen beverage lineup.

Dunkin's $2 Run Snacking menu was created to pair with the chain's signature beverages.

Dunkin's DD Perks rewards program was owered by more than 2 million new enrollees in 2017.

Dunkin’ also tested a $2 snacking menu at select Boston-area stores before launching it nationwide in late July. The options include an eccentric mix of sweet and savory items, such as doughnut fries, Munchkin dippers, gluten-free brownies, and pretzel bites all designed to pair with Dunkin’s signature beverages for an afternoon snack.

“In the snacking category, it’s clear they’re trying to hit on consumer trends and build resonance with a younger customer base,” Strelzik says.

The $2 snack menu test further signified Dunkin’s march toward value plays as well. Earlier this year, the company launched its national value menu built around the $2, $3, and $5 price points. Called Dunkin’ Go2s, the menu includes some of the chain’s most popular breakfast sandwiches, such as a $2 Two Egg & Cheese Wake-up Wrap Sandwich or a pair of Bacon, Egg & Cheese Croissants for $5.

Driven by the success of its breakfast sandwiches, Dunkin’s morning business—its bread and butter for nearly 70 years and representing about 60 percent of the systemwide sales—has surged in recent quarters, strengthening the brand’s presence in a daypart filled with powerhouse players like McDonald’s and Starbucks.

“Dunkin’s a legacy player ripe for encroachment, yet they’re hitting on trends and reinvigorating the brand while leveraging brand equity against core usage occasions to compete effectively,” Strelzik says.

Meanwhile, Dunkin’ continues heeding consumers’ calls for cleaner ingredients, removing artificial dyes from its doughnuts and beginning to eliminate synthetic dyes from its entire food and beverage lineup. The company has also launched a test of a digital catering platform in several key markets, investigated third-party delivery options, and committed itself to growing its consumer packaged goods (cpg) business in an effort to bolster revenue and branding. In the past three years, in fact, Dunkin’s CPG business, which includes ready-to-drink Iced Coffee and Dunkin’ K-Cup pods, has more than doubled, from $400 million in retail sales to $900 million.

That’s all part of the energy Weisman speaks so enthusiastically about.

“Dunkin’ Donuts is a brand that’s always on the move … [and] we’re pleased with the results of many different initiatives we have in motion,” he says.

But company leaders recognize they’re in the early miles of a trying endurance run that will test their resolve.

Setting the stage for future gains

Recognizing that success in the competitive quick-service environment requires steady performance in the present as well as an eye on the future, Dunkin’ executives have continued to explore ways in which they might build on the brand’s well-established heritage while delivering modern and relevant experiences capable of fueling sustainable, long-term growth.

Central to that effort is Dunkin’s DD Perks rewards program. Powered by more than 2 million new enrollees in 2017, the loyalty program is pushing toward 9 million members.

“We see DD Perks as an important part of our brand strategy, especially as we look for ways to further reward our loyal guests and offer them more relevant promotions tailored just for them, as well as in-store conveniences with our On-the-Go Mobile Ordering,” Weisman says.

Indeed, Dunkin’s DD Perks program is uniquely tied to its mobile-ordering platform, which strives to make the brand even more convenient and accessible for guests. With On-the-Go Mobile Ordering, guests can place their order ahead of time and then speed past the line to pick up their order at the store.

“Our On-the-Go Mobile Ordering has a roughly 80 percent retrial rate, showing that the program is clearly resonating with our guests and bringing them value,” Weisman says, adding that Dunkin’ will continue exploring ways to make DD Perks more flexible and attractive to guests.

Hottovy calls the continued success of DD Perks and mobile important to Dunkin’s vitality in the years ahead.

“They’re making headway on the mobile front, and that’s one of the great ways to keep consistent traffic,” Hottovy says.

But with plans of opening as many as 1,000 new stores over the next two years and soon reaching as many as 18,000 U.S. units, it will take even more for Dunkin’ to cement its spot among the quick-service elite.

Enter Dunkin’s NextGen store, the first of which opened in Quincy, Massachusetts, in January. (In one particularly notable turn, the store’s exterior drops the “Donuts” and simply reads “Dunkin’” in a nod to the store’s more diverse, albeit recently slimmed-down menu.)

Located about one mile away from the original Dunkin’ Donuts unit, the 2,200-square-foot store features a drive-thru line exclusively dedicated to mobile orders, a brighter interior design characterized by an open layout and natural light, espresso machines, a digital order status board, an expanded grab-and-go unit, and a tap system serving eight signature cold beverages, including coffee, iced tea, cold brew, and nitro-infused cold brew. Company leaders are betting that the NextGen store will refresh the brand and drive same-store sales growth for years to come.

“The launch of our NextGen store design and restaurant experience marks one of the most important moments in our growth as an on-the-go, beverage-led brand,” Weisman says. “Our new store design emphasizes and enhances the unparalleled speed and convenience that distinguishes Dunkin’ from competitors.”

Dunkin’ plans on developing roughly 50 NextGen stores across the U.S. over the course of 2018. In the meantime, though, various Dunkin’ franchisees have deferred restaurant remodels in the short-term in order to convert their restaurants to the new design.

“[That] is a great indicator that when we move forward together, we will be able to do so in a meaningful way,” Weisman says of the company’s relationship with its franchise partners.

Paired with nontraditional store growth, a particularly successful play that has seen Dunkin’ unveil units in casinos, travel centers, colleges, hospitals, and stadiums, Weisman says he and his colleagues see “significant opportunity” to grow the Dunkin’ Donuts brand across the U.S. In particular, the brand sees sizable potential in markets across the West like California, where Dunkin’, once a foreigner, now boasts more than 70 locations.

“Ultimately, our goal is to give consumers broad access to our brand, especially as they’re on the go in their day-to-day lives,” Weisman says.

After finding some early momentum with its simplified menu, DD Perks, mobile ordering, the NextGen store, and the like, Strelzik says it’s now imperative that Dunkin’ consistently reinforces some of these viable elements to compete in the long run.

About the Harpoon Brewery

The Harpoon Brewery was founded in 1986 by beer lovers who wanted more and better beer options. When the Brewery was founded, Harpoon was issued Brewing Permit #001 by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, since it was the first to brew commercially in Boston after a dormant period of about 25 years. Since then, it has expanded to a second brewery in Windsor, VT. Harpoon’s line of craft beer features its award-winning IPA and seasonal beers, along with special limited releases. In 2014, Harpoon became an employee-owned company.

For this one, you’re going to order a vanilla bean coolatta with two pumps of hazelnut swirl, whipped cream, and donut sprinkles blended in. While there is not a lot to order for this drink, getting all of these ingredients together for this drink will be a pain for your barista, so please be kind! This will either excite your barista if they like their job or make them want to spit in your drink. But, personally, I think it’s worth the risk! They also might have a bit of mercy on you if you’re ordering this on your actual birthday!
