    Saule OmarovaUnited States Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs President Joe Biden's pick to run one of Washington's most important banking industry regulators looks like she might not have enough support for confirmation in the Senate. Senate Democrats are fractured over whether to support Saule Omarova, Biden's indicated choice to lead the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, jeopardizing her candidacy. Any Democratic defection, or an indication of such, could force Senate leadership to scrap the nomination before putting Omarova up to a vote. Her selection, coupled with her views on how to overhaul the U.S. banking system, prompted several Senate Democrats or their staff to complain to the White House and suggest that the president's choice will be tough to support on Capitol Hill, according to a person familiar with the matter. This person declined to be named in order to speak openly about private discussions between the White House and Senate offices. Others surrounding the OCC nomination process said a handful of moderate Democrats harbor reservations about Omarova and her aspirations to "end banking as we...

Gensler, chosen for the role by President Joe Biden, will now play a key part in enforcing and drafting the rules that govern Wall Street, investors and a wide range of other financial entities.

    hello.com Daily horoscope: what are the stars in store for you this Tuesday, March 23? This Tuesday, the astral movements indicate that Mars is going to establish a connection with Saturn. This event will influence the signs of the zodiac, who are advised to pay a little more attention to their sixth sense. ARIES (March 21 – April 20) There is a song that says that half a six pence “is better than half a penny”, which warns us that having half of something is always more desirable than staying with nothing. We have to try to get the most out of the resources we have, although the ideal would be to be able to create more resources to face any situation.

    AUSTIN (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — She was a Texas utility regulator appointed by Gov. Greg Abbott and Monday she became the second to resign after the deadly February blackouts that left millions without electricity or heat for days.

    Bloomberg Life expectancy in the US drops a full year in 2020 (Bloomberg) – America’s life expectancy declined by a full year in the first half of 2020, the biggest drop since World War II, amid the devastation caused by Covid-19, according to provisional data from the National Center From Health Statistics (NCHS), life expectancy at birth fell from 78.8 years in 2019 to 77.8 years. The report also showed widening disparities along racial and gender lines. The life expectancy of black men fell three years, while the difference between the sexes increased to 5.4 years, the largest increase in more than two decades. The figures capture the impact of a pandemic that has been directly responsible for nearly half a million deaths in the US Recent research revealed that the overall figure may be even higher once indirect effects are considered, such as people who died because they delayed seeking treatment for other conditions. Life expectancy in the US had already shown signs of stagnation in the years before the coronavirus, having risen steadily for most of the period...
    Deemed to be subject to the Chinese Communist Party, the Chinese public news channel in English CGTN lost its license in the United Kingdom, a measure that could further poison relations between London and Beijing. In a statement, the British media regulator explained Thursday that the broadcasting rights had been granted to the company Star China Media Limited which in reality “does not exercise editorial responsibility for the content broadcast by CGTN”. A request to transfer this license to the entity actually controlling the channel was not possible because the latter “is controlled by the Chinese Communist Party”, it is specified. “We have given CGTN a lot of time to comply with the rules”, which notably prohibit the license holder from being controlled by a political body, Ofcom detailed. “These efforts are now exhausted”, he added, deeming therefore “appropriate to revoke the license granted to CGTN to broadcast in the United Kingdom”. This decision risks further straining relations between the United Kingdom and China, already undermined by London’s condemnation of the controversial Chinese security law in Hong Kong and...

Brown was quick to say that the Senate Banking Committee's chief concern will continue to be addressing the economic fallout caused by the Covid-19 crisis by working with the Federal Reserve to provide liquidity to small businesses and protecting access to housing for everyday Americans. A longtime advocate of affordable housing, Brown said his tenure as incoming committee chairman will be marked by a focus on workers and families instead of the corporate tilt seen under Republican leadership. "This committee in the past has been about Wall Street. As chair, I'm going to make it about workers and their families and what matters to their lives,"...
    Pregnant women will not be offered Pfizer's breakthrough coronavirus vaccine due to a lack of evidence, experts have said. The UK Government has issued guidelines making it clear mothers-to-be should not be inoculated until after they've given birth. Women who think they might be pregnant are urged to delay vaccination until they are certain they are not, and those trying for a baby should not be immunised either. However, the measure is purely precautionary and it is not uncommon to exclude some groups from taking brand new vaccines.   Pfizer's vaccine sailed through approval from Britain's medical watchdog last week with a good safety rating and no evidence to suggest pregnant women are at risk.  But scientists behind the jab haven't tested it on pregnant or breastfeeding women – often the case in scientific trials for ethical reasons – so there is no concrete evidence showing it would be safe and effective. Some vaccines that contain live versions of viruses are not usually recommended in pregnancy because of the potential for minor infection, while others are considered safe to use.  Scientists have...
    AstraZeneca, which announced the data behind its COVID-19 vaccine candidate Monday, has made a "huge commitment" to providing the vaccine in no profit so it will benefit all people, not only the wealthy," Ruud Dobber, an executive vice president for the pharmaceutical giant, said Monday. "We have supply chains in the United States, in the U.K., and developing countries in the world," Dobber told CNBCs "Squawk Box." "Thats an important part of our strategy: To make the vaccine available to all the people in the world. This is not reserved only to the rich countries or to the rich people." AstraZeneca early Monday reported a vaccine it developed with the University of Oxford prevented 70% of people from developing COVID. However, researchers found, if people were given a half dose of the vaccine followed later by a full dose, instead of two full doses, the protection allowed by the drug rose to about 90%. "The first step we need to make, clearly, is to go now to the regulators during the course of this week," Dobber said. "We will show...

    New York’s financial regulator on Wednesday proposed new licensing rules that would make it easier for companies to engage in cryptocurrency business — using such digital currencies as bitcoin — in the state. The New York State Department of Financial Services is asking for the public’s input about the plan by Aug. 10. The initiative stems from the “actual or perceived hurdles” that firms may face in obtaining the state’s “BitLicense,” unveiled in 2015, the regulator said. New York’s proposed framework would allow companies that want to engage in virtu al currency business activity in the state to obtain a conditional license, through which they would collaborate with fully licensed companies, NYDFS said. New York introduced its BitLicense and initial framework in 2015, when other regulators were still skeptical of virtual currencies. Those currencies are now part of a broader, rapidly growing industry that blends finance and technology, and which leading financial centers are keen to attract. But obtaining New York’s current BitLicense can be a years-long process, virtual currency companies have said. The state has granted 25 virtual...
