    New Zealand will fully reopen to the rest of the world by July 31 after more than two years of tough coronavirus restrictions that closed the border.  The move will come two months earlier than the government had initially planned.  The final part of the staged border reopening will open the country back up to all visa categories - including tourists, workers, families and students. 'New Zealand is in demand and now fully open for business,' the country's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said.

Addressing a Business NZ lunch in the country's biggest city Auckland on Wednesday, Ms Ardern also announced immigration changes such as access to residency for highly-skilled workers in global demand.  New Zealand's international education sector will also fully reopen by July 31, but with new...
    Getty Kobe Bryant, Kyrie Irving and LeBron James In his last outing against the Orlando Magic, Kyrie Irving eclipsed his career-high, dropping a whopping 60 points in a 150-108 win. But the number of points that Irving scored was not the most impressive part of his performance, but rather how efficiently he was able to reach that mark. He shot a scorching 20-31 from the field to go along with 6 rebounds, 4 assists, and 4 steals. Even Brooklyn Nets head coach Steve Nash, who is a two-time league MVP, was in awe of Irving’s performance. “He’s just incredible. I felt like he had my career highlight reel in the first 12 minutes of the game,” Nash said of Irving’s performance after the win per NetsDaily. “It’s a pleasure to see it up close and be a part of it.” The latest Nets news straight to your inbox!

    Kyrie Irving earned the backing up of his former Brooklyn Nets teammate and EuroLeague star Mike James this week when comparing the point guard to Stephen Curry. James, who only played 13 games for Brooklyn during the 2020-21 season, set off the debate when he said he would put Irving and James Harden in the conversation of most skilled scorers in NBA history. When pressed about favoring his former teammates over other NBA stars, James doubled down. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "Kyrie more skilled then Steph. Steph just shoot better.

Period. I said what i said. Move on." Irving and Curry are almost incomparable since their careers took a totally different path and play two different styles of basketball. Curry has been known for his deadly three-point accuracy. It was on full display during his career and he won NBA scoring...
    Muthumalla Dhandapani, an Indian immigrant with an H1-B visa and a Comcast employee in Sunnyvale, protests President Trump's immigration orders in 2017.Santiago Mejia | Hearst Newspapers | Getty Images The U.S. does not have enough high-skilled workers to meet demand for computer-related jobs, and employers are seeking immigrant talent to help fill that gap, according to a new report released Thursday. For every unemployed computer or math worker in the country in 2020, there were more than seven job postings for computer-related occupations, bipartisan immigration research group New American Economy found. "More nuanced and responsive policy around employment-based immigration could be one way to help the U.S. more quickly and more robustly bounce back from the Covid-19 [pandemic] and future economic disruptions and crises," the report said. The study comes as record job openings in the U.S. coincide with persistent unemployment, suggesting a mismatch in labor demand and supply. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce last week launched a campaign calling for an increase in employment-based immigration to address the worker shortage. NAE, which was founded by billionaire Mike Bloomberg, analyzed...
    More On: new york knicks Knicks stars’ handling of first playoff series could be X-factor Hawks coach using NBA ‘needing’ Knicks as rallying cry Knicks hint at lineup twist for first round Jeremy Lin reaches ‘final deadline’ in frustrated Instagram post The prevailing theory is the Hawks are the more talented team than the Knicks. That thinking led to preseason predictions the Hawks, after their big free agency, would be a playoff team and the Knicks a bottom-feeder. Seventy-two games has not changed the sentiment, especially with Atlanta soaring at a 27-11 clip since making the coaching change to Nate McMillan on March 1. Knicks starting center Nerlens Noel, who embodies the Knicks’ grit, thinks “talent’’ is in the eye of the beholder, as Tom Thibodeau’s Cinderella club hosts Sunday’s Game 1 of their first-round series. “I think they can ponder it however they want to ponder it on talent,’’ Noel said via Zoom after Wednesday’s practice. “I think we’re a team that plays together. I think we have talent, period. You don’t get to the NBA without being...
    Nebraska is leading the way in occupational licensing reform, making it easier for skilled laborers to transfer businesses to the state. "There's a broad recognition that we have a somewhat arbitrary state-by-state system, where requirements for licensure vary greatly for the same job across state lines," Dr. Laura Ebke, a senior fellow at the Platte Institute, told The Center Square. "Universal recognition would allow states, in our case Nebraska, to welcome already skilled workers to the state, without requiring them to jump through significant additional hoops." Barriers in about 10% of Nebraska's licensed occupations have been reduced and committees have reviewed just over half of Nebraska's licenses, looking for areas to reform. While many are in favor of universal licensing, some trade unions and licensing boards have voiced opposition. "As a general rule, the occupations represented in Nebraska seem to be content with the licensing structure that we've got here, and claim that we would be 'watering down' the quality of licenses if we let people practice in our state who have not been licensed according...

    SAN DIEGO —  On Christmas Eve morning, a woman stood outside Escondido Post Acute Rehab, talking through a window with her 100-year-old mother, a resident of the facility who has been diagnosed with COVID-19. The two women spoke over the phone for about 15 minutes, waving at one another as two healthcare workers wearing personal protective equipment worked in the room. The daughter said she was checking on her mom and trying to find out how she was doing after testing positive for the virus while recovering from a dislocated shoulder. Last week, the nursing home earned the distinction of having the largest active outbreak in a skilled nursing facility in San Diego County. As of Wednesday, Escondido Post Acute had 111 residents and 70 healthcare workers who had the novel coronavirus out of a total of 139 residents and 81 staff who had tested positive there since the beginning of the pandemic. The facility has a maximum bed count of 180, according to data from the California Department of Public Health. Facilities experiencing staffing shortages due to COVID-19 infections,...
    LeBron James and his place next to Michael Jordan on the all-time list is becoming a big conversation as the former stands one win away from his fourth Championship. While it isn’t Jordan’s six titles, there is a very real argument for LeBron next to MJ if he wins this championship. One of MJ’s biggest rivals, Detroit Pistons point guard Isiah Thomas, has delivered his verdict. Thomas does have animosity towards Jordan from their playing days. However, he substantiates his choice of LeBron James by separating the skills of the two players. “When I take away the genetic gifts and look at basketball playing ability, who is the better basketball player if you don’t have the genetic freakiness with it? I look at all those guys who are similar in size. LeBron, Jordan, Magic, they all have the genetic gift of size. But Jordan had the genetic jumping ability. LeBron has a genetic jumping ability, but if I take away those gifts and say just who is the better basketball player all-around? There is no comparison.” Thomas’s opinions could...
    Inmate firefighters, left, battle the Quail Fire burning near Winters, Calif., on Sunday, June 7, 2020. Noah Berger/AP For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis and more, subscribe to Mother Jones' newsletters.California is burning: Ongoing blazes have devoured more than 1 million acres this year so far, killing at least seven people and destroying hundreds of homes. The state is also facing a firefighter shortage. But even so, it is preventing a trained group of people from assisting in its unending annual fight against wildfires: former state inmates. And that’s despite the fact it trains these inmates to fight fires and exploits their labor when they are imprisoned.  It’s clear that the state could use additional assistance from trained former inmates. That could soon change. The state Assembly has passed legislation that would allow formerly incarcerated people who participate in the state’s firefighting program to expunge their criminal records upon release from custody and pursue firefighting jobs. (People convicted of certain crimes, like certain violent felonies and sex offenses, would be ineligible.) The Senate would need to approve the legislation before its session...
