Nike boycott: Parks and recreation department banned from using brand over Kaepernick advertA US city has banned its parks and recreation department from purchasing Nike equipment after the sportswear giant launched a new ad campaign featuring controversial quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Local government staff in Kenner, Louisiana, were told of new rules last week, introduced in an apparent response to the brand’s use of the former NFL star in commercials.

U.S. State Department softens travel advisory on Cuba

U.S. State Department softens travel advisory on CubaThe United States on Thursday revised its travel advisory on Cuba to “exercise increased caution,” from “reconsider travel,” a move that some in the tourism sector hope could help reverse a decline in American visitors to the Caribbean island.
