British watchdog bans ads over sexist sterotypes

British watchdog bans ads over sexist sterotypesThe bans came in a first set of rulings introduced by the Advertising Standards Agency (ASA) under new rules against harmful gendered stereotypes introduced in June. "It's about time advertisers woke up and stopped reinforcing lazy, outmoded gender stereotypes," said Ella Smillie, a spokeswoman for the Fawcett Society, which campaigns for women's rights. An advert for Philadelphia cheese showing two new fathers becoming so distracted by snacks that they forget their babies was banned by the ASA, which said it relied on the stereotype than men are less capable of caring for children.

ANALYSIS-Going negative? As trade war rages, central banks ponder radical steps

ANALYSIS-Going negative? As trade war rages, central banks ponder radical stepsTOKYO/WELLINGTON, Aug 14 (Reuters) - Negative interest rate policy - an unconventional gambit once only considered by economies with chronically low inflation such as Europe and Japan - is becoming a more attractive option for some other central banks to counter unwelcome currency rises.
