Nike in China

Nike released a limited run of trainers designed by the studio of Japan’s Jun Takahashi. However, Takahashi then expressed support on Instagram for Hong Kong citizens who have been protesting against a law that would allow extraditions to China. Nike has now pulled the line in that country. Financial Times

Brexit Preparations

EY says U.K. banks are again showing signs of preparing for a no-deal Brexit by moving out of the country. Here’s the consultancy’s U.K. financial services chief, Omar Ali: “The financial impact of Brexit is beginning to fall to the bottom line, and firms are now making a direct link between financial performance and the tangible commercial impacts of Brexit.” Reuters

San Francisco is set to ban the sale of e-cigarettes—a first for a U.S. city. The legislation is the result of uncertainty over the health effects of the vaping devices.

He’s a mayor, so—unlike congressional candidates—he can’t tap his local accounts for a federal campaign. He hasn’t been able to get a televised town hall, for unclear reasons. Messam writes: “Despite these inequities, I now have reached the 1% threshold in two national polls, and I will continue to press forward.” Fortune
