    The New York attorney general's office rejected Donald Trump's settlement offer and is reportedly considering charging the former president with fraud and also suing one of his children. James, a Democrat who is running for re-election in November, has charged the Trump Organization with inflated the value of its properties to obtain favorable loans and deflating their value for tax purposes. Ivanka, Eric and Donald Jr. all served as senior executives at the family real estate business.  The likelihood of a court battle grew after James' office rejected at least one of the Trump lawyers' settlement offers, according to the New York Times, which cited three people familiar with the matter. Trump has denied any wrongdoing and called James' probe a politically motivated witch hunt. He filed an unsuccessful lawsuit to block her probe and accused James, who is black, of being racist.  The New York attorney general's office rejected Donald Trump's settlement offer and is reportedly considering charging the former president with fraud and also suing one of his children Ivanka, Eric and Donald Jr. all served as senior...

    VIDEO6:1406:14Job market could weaken a bit at some point, says fmr. Fed Governor KrosznerSquawk on the Street A record number of workers have quit their jobs, looked for new ones and renegotiated along the way. But with all the opportunities the current labor market offers, there are challenges, too — especially when it comes to standing out in a sea of job applicants. About 1 in 5 workers, or 22%, said will likely look for a new job in the next six months, but only about one-third think it will be easy, despite widespread job openings, according to a new report by the Pew Research Center. Still, the chance at a fresh start with higher pay or more flexibility (or simply to relieve burnout) is driving many workers to get in on the Great Resignation, also known as the Great Reshuffle, while they can. It could get harder to find a jobRecent signs show the labor market, which was on fire in 2021, may be beginning to cool. Hiring has slowed somewhat already, while uncertainty is running high about where the economy is...
    Pope Francis has slapped down rumours that he would resign amid a flurry of health issues, vowing to serve as pontiff for 'as long as God allows'. Francis, 85, cancelled a trip to Africa last week due to mobility concerns, prompting fears for his health. He also told a meeting of priests in Rome last week: 'Rather than operate, I'll resign.' But the Catholic church leader poured cold water on talk of resignation, reportedly telling Brazilian bishops in a meeting yesterday: 'I want to live my mission as long as God allows me and that’s it.' Archbishop Roque Paloschi added that the Pope reassured the clergy meeting that 'resignation does not cross his mind', according to a  Portuguese translation of the Vatican newsletter. Pope Francis (pictured yesterday) has been wheelchair-bound due to issues with his knee Monsignor Lúcio Nicoletto added that he was wowed by the Pope's 'great strength' at the meeting.  Francis had told his weekly general audience on Wednesday: 'When we are old, we cannot do the same things we did when we were young. 'The body has another...
    Washington (CNN)Lifting Trump-era tariffs is one of the few things President Joe Biden could do to slow inflation -- but that doesn't mean Americans would immediately notice a drop in prices if he took that action.So far, Biden has resisted pressure from many in the American business community to lift the tariffs that his predecessor imposed on $350 billion of Chinese goods -- including bicycles, baseball caps and sneakers -- during a tit-for-tat trade war. But as inflation continues to be a thorn in the President's side -- or "the bane of our existence" as Biden recently put it -- he has said his administration is considering lifting the tariffs. A White House official earlier this month said that a decision would be announced in the "coming weeks."It's not a simple decision and advisers within the administration are divided on whether to lift the tariffs. On the one hand, China has not lived up to purchase commitments it made during the Trump administration, and some US industries struggle to compete with China's unfair trade practices. On the other hand, Biden...
    Families from Latin America get off a bus at a motel being used as a shelter run by the non-profit Colores United, after being released from immigration detention in Deming, New Mexico, on June 4, 2022. The non-profit Colores United uses the motel, where they feed, clothe and assist migrants who are on their way to sponsors in the United States. In a significant policy move that could ease demands facing borderland organizations that regularly assist individuals and families seeking asylum, the Biden administration is reportedly looking at transporting migrants who’ve already been processed by U.S. immigration officials to regions further within the U.S., CBS News reports.  While the report said that the administration has not yet made a decision, advocates welcomed the possible news. “This was long overdue: allowing people’s journey to be as safe as possible, & reducing the pressure on border communities like El Paso & our shelters,” responded Las Americas Immigrant Advocacy Center. “Next step should be restoring the access to asylum to ALL.” RELATED STORY: Biden administration readies new policy intended to speed up asylum process Campaign Action When asylum-seekers...
    President Joe Biden appears to be increasingly open to taking executive action on federal student debt forgiveness as the midterm elections loom President Joe Biden could take executive action to wipe at least $10,000 in federal student debt per borrower, it was reported on Friday. It would make good on a promise Biden made on the 2020 campaign trail, as he looks to help Democrats get voters to the polls in November's midterm elections. A recent analysis by the Brookings Institute put the total cost of forgiving $10,000 for every one of the roughly 43 million student loan borrowers at about $373 billion. But sources told Bloomberg that any aid is likely to be more targeted to lower and middle-income earners. Administration officials, however, left the door open to a 'possibly larger' amount than $10,000. 'Lots of options on the table,' people familiar told The Hill. The added that the White House was 'doing a lot of listening right now.' DailyMail.com has reached out to the White House for comment.  If action were taken to cancel the full $373 billion...
    President Joe Biden took a good-natured jab at Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer when a reporter asked about negotiations over student loan forgiveness. On Thursday morning, Biden took to the Roosevelt Room of the White House to deliver what the White House billed as “remarks on support for Ukrainians defending their country and their freedom against Russia’s brutal war.” The president went on to take questions from reporters following his prepared remarks, one of which was on the subject of Schumer’s remarks on the Senate floor on student debt cancellation. “Mr. President, Majority Leader Schumer said yesterday that you’re, quote, ‘getting closer’ to using executive authority to cancel up to $50,000 in student loan debt,” the reporter said, and asked “Can you confirm that?” With a smile, Biden cracked “You mean my spokesman said that?” “Majority Leader Schumer,” the reporter repeated. Biden then said he is “considering dealing with some debt reduction” — but categorically ruled out the amount the reporter specified: Look, number one, one of — the first thing we did was reform the system that was in place that didn’t...
    The House committee investigating the January 6th insurrection is talking about rewriting the 1807 Insurrection Act, which gives president wide authority to deploy the military within the United States to respond to a rebellion. The discussions are preliminary, The New York Times reported, as some see a doomsday type scenario where a future rogue president may try to use the military to stroke an insurrection but others worry about removing the power of a president to quickly deploy armed troops, as presidents did in the Civil War and civil rights eras. Donald Trump never invoked the law as president. But he threatened to use it against protesters in Lafayette Square who were objecting to the police killing of George Floyd.  Trump adviser Stephen Miller also suggested invoking it for use at the southern border but then Defense Secretary Mark Esper shot that idea down.  The Insurrection Act of 1807 allows the President to deploy U.S. military and federalized National Guard troops against an insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination or conspiracy which results in the deprivation of constitutionally secured rights, and where...
    In a wild turn of events, Kansas City Chiefs Mark Donovan said the team is considering moving the team out of town.  Don’t look now Kansas City Chiefs fans, but team president Mark Donovan just provided an update that no one is going to like. Donovan said on Tuesday morning that the team is considering options for a new stadium, which would include a move away from Kansas City. What in the world? With this, not only would the Chiefs leave Kansas City, but they could also leave Missouri as well. This would be heartbreaking for so many.

    We all remember when Justin Bieber found Jesus after some run-ins with the law and pissing in a mop bucket back in the early 2010s. Paparazzi photos of the Canadian pop singer strolling around New York and Los Angeles with a jacked, often shirtless Diplo look-alike began to emerge online. It turned out the tattooed fellow wasn’t a security guard or Bieber’s fitness trainer but the senior pastor and co-founder of Hillsong NYC, the Australian megachurch’s first branch in the United States and the latest hotspot for celebrity followers of Christ. Since entering the public consciousness and experiencing influencer-level fame, Carl Lentz represented the stereotypical image of the young, “hip” pastor grasping for relevance in the social media age while also raising awareness for the Hillsong youth-oriented brand. With his hypebeast fashion, “real talk” method of preaching, and A-list followers including Kevin Durant, Selena Gomez and Chris Pratt, his presentation and leadership style was as fascinating as it was grotesque and off-putting. Then came the pastor’s admission during the pandemic that he cheated on his wife Laura Lentz and had...
    Gas prices in Westchester are above six dollars as prices at the pump continue to raise across the Southland on Sunday, March 13, 2022 in Los Angeles, CA.Jason Armond | Los Angeles Times | Getty Images Some Washington lawmakers are seeking to help curb prices at the gas pump by temporarily suspending the federal gas tax. That may sound like good news to consumers who are suffering from sticker shock. Yet experts say the change would likely not result in a meaningful reduction in prices. Democratic Sens. Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire and Mark Kelly of Arizona in February proposed a bill that would suspend the federal gas tax through the end of the year. That levy amounts to 18.4 cents per gallon, while states separately impose their own levies. The average price of a gallon of gas is $4.29 as of Thursday, according to AAA.

    White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters Monday that there was no plan yet for Biden to visit Saudi Arabia. She also went on to say that they would not be increasing domestic oil production to ease the oil crisis but instead spun the crisis to validate their anti-oil policies. “It’s a reminder that real energy security comes from reducing our dependence on fossil fuels,” she claimed. Also on Monday, the stock market continued to tank in response to high oil prices and the escalating war in Ukraine from Russian invasion.

    As Minnesota lawmakers and the city of Minneapolis debate new limits on no-knock search warrants following the killing of Amir Locke by a Minneapolis police officer, one point of contention has been whether to try to ban them completely or allow them in extreme or limited circumstances. The example most often given of such an extreme circumstance: a hostage situation. On Thursday, House Democrats detailed a bill that would sharply curb no-knock search warrants, but it does have a key exception: courts can approve a no-knock entry if there is clear evidence of significant and imminent risk of death or harm to someone confined without their consent. Democrats said the exception could allow police to use no-knock warrants in situations just short of an emergency. Article continues after advertisement But the DFL measure drew criticism from two police chiefs — one who opposes no-knock raids and one who supports them — who said the carve out may be unnecessary since officers don’t actually need a no-knock search warrant if someone’s life is in danger.  What the DFL bill would do...
    New York (CNN)The jury in the Michael Avenatti federal criminal trial is asking the judge for help, saying that one of the 12 is "acting on a feeling" and not considering evidence. "We have one juror who is refusing to look at evidence and is acting on a feeling. We need assistance on moving forward. She does not believe she needs to prove her side using evidence and refuses to show us how she has come to her conclusion," the note said, according to Judge Jesse Furman."Please help us move forward not going on any evidence, all emotions and does not understand this job of a jury," the note added, with the word "please" underlined. Daniels to Avenatti in court: You lied to me, thats not respectfulProsecutors alleged in this case that Avenatti -- who helped negotiate the $800,000 advance for Stormy Daniels' October 2018 book "Full Disclosure" -- defrauded his former client by instructing her literary agent to send two of the installments of the advance totaling nearly $300,000 to an account controlled by him, rather than directly to...
    Former New York City Mayor Bill de Plasio is reportedly considering running for Congress.  The New York Post reported Wednesday that de Blasio is eyeing New York's 11th Congressional district, which thanks to redistricting will now include his Brooklyn neighborhood of Park Slope, along with the more conservative Staten Island, which is currently represented by Republican Rep. Nicole Malliotakis.   Malliotakis won the New York swing district by around six points in 2020, grabbing it from Democratic Rep. Max Rose, who plans to run for the seat again.  Former New York City Mayor Bill de Plasio is reportedly considering running for Congress in the 11th Congressional district of New York, which thanks to gerrymandering will be more friendly for Democrats  Republican Rep.

    The FBI reportedly spent two years considering whether it should buy a spyware tool that would allow it to hack into any phone in the United States. US government agencies were contacted by the NSO Group, an Israeli cyberweapons firm, multiple times between 2019 and last summer, according to the New York Times Magazine. The firm, which has been accused of aiding human rights abuses in nations across the globe, demonstrated a new system, called 'Phantom,' during a presentation to officials in Washington, that could hack into any phone nationwide. While the country's top law enforcement agency ultimately did not purchase or procure the spyware software, an FBI spokesperson told the Times that investment in such technologies not only helps to 'combat crime' but also, apparently, can 'protect both the American people and our civil liberties.'  Several reasons have been offered as to why the FBI decided against procuring the device-hacking tool, chief among them a series of lawsuits and controversies that persisted against the software distribution firm at the time of negotiations.  The website of Israeli company NSO...
    South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg most likely knew he had run over and killed a man on the night of the fatal 2020 crash before telling a 911 dispatcher that 'it could be' a deer, out-of-state criminal investigators told a committee considering bringing impeachment charges.  Investigators said they doubted Ravnsborg's insistence, both in public and in law enforcement interviews, that after the fatal hit-and-run of 55-year-old Joseph Boever near the town of Highmore in September 2020, the AG initially thought he had hit an animal.  They pointed to what they believed were two slips in Ravnsborg's account as he was being interviewed by law enforcement officers 18 days after the crash.  'He said he saw him. The only other person out there was Joe Boever,' North Dakota Special Agent Joe Arenz said, referring to a point in the Republican AG's interview where he said that as he was surveying the accident scene, he turned around and saw 'him.' 'So I know exactly where I turn around and saw him,' Ravnsborg, 45, said during the recorded interview with investigators, before quickly...
    White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Wednesday called Republican criticism of Joe Biden's voting rights speech in Atlanta 'hilarious.' She defended the president after Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell called Biden's speech 'profoundly, profoundly unpresidential' and GOP Senator Mitt Romney said Biden was taking the same 'tragic road' as Donald Trump in trying to undermine the credibility of American elections. 'I know there has been a lot of claims of the offensive nature of the speech yesterday, which is hilarious on many levels, given how many people sat silently over the last four years for the former president,' Psaki said when asked about the remarks at her daily press briefing. 'But I would note that in our view and the president's view, what is far more offensive is the effort to suppress people's basic right to exercise who they want to support and who they want to elect,' she noted. Romney voted for one count of Trump's impeachment for his role, for his role in inciting an insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.  Trump was ultimately acquitted by the...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci takes part in a meeting with U.S. President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris and other members of the White House COVID-19 Response Team on developments related to the Omicron COVID-19 variant from the State Dining Room at the White House in Washington, U.S., December 9, 2021.Leah Millis | Reuters The U.S. is considering recommending that individuals exposed to Covid end isolation if they've tested negative for the virus after five days, U.S. infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday. The move could come after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention faced harsh feedback for its decision last week to reduce Covid-19 isolation periods for asymptomatic people to five days from 10, even if the individual continues to test positive. "There has been some concern about why we don't ask people at that five-day period to get tested," Fauci said on ABC's "This Week." "That is something that is now under consideration." "The CDC is very well aware that there has been some pushback about that. Looking at it again, there may be an...
    President Joe Biden said Tuesday he’s “considering reversing” the travel ban issued to South Africa and seven other countries shortly after Thanksgiving due to the Omicron variant. Biden announced travel restrictions from South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Mozambique and Malawi on Nov. 26 after South Africa identified the newest variant. Omicron is believed to be more transmissible but may have less severe symptoms than previous coronavirus variants. With Omicron cases so prevalent in the U.S., the president was asked about reversing the travel ban Tuesday. The administration has always maintained that the travel restrictions were temporary. (RELATED: Biden To Announce Plan For Free At-Home Tests Sent To Americans’ Doorsteps) WATCH: “I’m considering reversing it,” Biden said. “I’m gonna talk with my team in the next couple days.

    He has played Spider-Man over three films and is getting to portray Hollywood legend Fred Astaire. And though it seems like he is just about to hit the peak of his career, Tom Holland has revealed that he has considered stepping away from acting. The 25-year-old actor was candid about his next step in an interview with Sky News  on Friday as he was there to discuss his upcoming feature, Spider-Man: No Way Home, which is poised to become one of this year's highest-earning films. During the conversation, the performer expressed that he was considering taking his career in other directions after completing all of his planned professional obligations.

    Legislation under consideration in the Ohio Legislature would outlaw abortion as soon as conception occurs. States are continuing to introduce abortion bills at a breakneck pace, and Ohio is no exception. The state is currently considering a measure that would be even more restrictive than the one recently enacted in Texas, while another measure that would address so-called "botched abortions" is also making its way through the Legislature.  Ohio's proposed abortion ban is getting a lot of attention. It's even more drastic than the law that went into effect in Texas earlier this year: While the Texas law bans abortions at six weeks' gestation, Ohio's bill would completely ban abortion by defining an "unborn child" as "an individual organism of the species homo sapiens from fertilization until live birth." Ohio's bill contains a provision also found in the Texas law, whereby private citizens can sue anyone who "aids and abets" someone who obtains an abortion. The Ohio bill would also allow private citizens to sue anyone who has "taken action or...
    Sam Nunberg, former aide to President Trump, said the former president is “certainly, certainly considering” a presidential run and said he personally believes he will, telling Breitbart News Saturday that Trump must “look forward” despite everything that occurred in the last presidential election.  “Obviously, he is certainly, certainly considering it,” Nunberg said when asked if Trump will run in 2024.  “He seems to have his ducks in a row. I thought it was extremely smart that his Super PAC has already made hires in Iowa.” However, Nunberg identified a few “disadvantages” Trump could have running, noting that, from the minute he makes the announcement, he will essentially be running a general election campaign. “The problem for Donald Trump if he announces that he’s running for president, and I believe that he will, is he’s going to be running a general election campaign from the day he announces,” he said, noting that he could run into trouble in caucus and primary states, particularly if there is an insurgent. Another potential issue could be phony investigations, which plagued his presidency. LISTEN: Breitbart · Sam Nunberg – November...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The CDC says everyone over the age of 18 is now eligible for a COVID-19 booster shot. More than 2.2 million people in Florida have gotten their additional shot.

    (CNN)The judge in the homicide trial of Kyle Rittenhouse met with attorneys Friday morning for a conference on jury instructions, telling Rittenhouse that presenting lesser offenses to the jury lowers the possibility of a second trial but increases the risk of a conviction.Prosecutors asked Kenosha County Circuit Judge Bruce Schroeder if he'd give the jury instructions on lesser charges Monday after closing arguments from prosecutors and defense attorneys.The judge explained to Rittenhouse what that meant. "Any of the ones we talked about, which are less serious crimes carrying lesser potential sentences, if I allow those, then the jury, if they are unable to agree that you're guilty of the charged offense, will have the opportunity to consider whether you're guilty of the less serious offense and could return that as a verdict as an alternative to instead returning a verdict of not guilty," Schroeder said. Throughout Friday's conference, Schroeder indicated his position on including instructions for several of the lesser charges and told the attorneys he will give them his decision Saturday.

                        The Biden administration on Monday confirmed that they are considering shutting down another pipeline, Michigan’s Line 5 oil pipeline. When speaking to reporters, Karine Jean-Pierre, a spokesperson for the White House, confirmed numerous reports that the group is analyzing effects of the potential termination. As noted by The Detroit News, Jean-Pierre pointed to a study that is underway to “help inform any additional action or position the U.S. will be taking on the replacement of Line 5.” Governor Gretchen Whitmer has continuously lobbied for the pipeline to be shut down, saying “the fate of the Great Lakes and Michigan hangs in the balance.” If Whitmer is successful, energy disruptions and price increases would be inevitable, analysts say. Previously, Whitmer lashed out at Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after his government bypassed her to ensure an energy pipeline continues operating. The Michigan governor revoked Enbridge’s easement for its pipeline in the Straits of Mackinac, and now claims the pipe is trespassing on Michigan property. She has threatened to seize the...
    Former President Trump said Friday "it's not even believable" that President Biden's administration is debating $450,000 payments per person to migrants who were separated from their families at the southern border.

    Rep. Dan Crenshaw slammed President Biden Thursday over a Wall Street Journal report that Biden is considering paying $450,000 to migrant families that were separated on the southern border during former President Trump's administration, alluding that military families get worse government benefits than that.  "Biden wants to pay illegal immigrants $450,000 for their hardship while breaking our laws," Crenshaw, R-Texas, a Navy SEAL veteran, tweeted. "For perspective, if a service member is killed in action, their next of kin gets an insurance payment of $400,000. Let that sink in." According to the Wall Street Journal, the potential $450,000-per-person payments would come as the government is trying fight with lawsuits filed over alleged hardship stemming from the policy of separating parents from minors.  TEXAS GOV.

    Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio hinted Friday that he is considering running for New York governor in the 2022 gubernatorial election. De Blasio’s term as mayor is set to end December 31, 2021, after serving the maximum of two terms in office, Politico reported. The mayor joined “Morning Joe” early Friday, admitting that he is “absolutely” considering a future political career beyond his current mayoral position, according to the New York Post. “The politics, that’s next year. But look, I believe in public service, I’ve done it my whole life. I want to keep working on crucial issues and causes.

    08/26/2021 at 2:13 PM CEST At PSG they are preparing for what may be an imminent sale of Kylian Mbappé to Real Madrid. Since ‘Le Parisien’ they assure that the Parisian club wants 220 million, 60 more compared to the 160 ‘kilos’ that Florentino Pérez has offered. In view of the fact that both clubs are likely to reach an agreement, the newspaper ‘L’Equipe’ have not been slow to speculate on PSG’s plans if Mbappé finally ends up leaving. According to the aforementioned newspaper, the Parisians would immediately go for Haaland, Kane or Lewandowski. If finally the Parisian entity ends up receiving these close to 200 million euros, no one doubts that it could face any major operation tocateja. It is also true that Dortmund, Tottenham and Bayern are not willing to sell at any price, but it remains to be seen what they would do if they received a succulent last minute offer. And more considering that, in the case of Tottenham and Bayern, it would possibly be the last chance to make...
    MLB commissioner Rob Manfred is reportedly considering expanding the postseason in collective bargaining agreement negotiations this offseason. If the negotiations between MLB and the Players Association on the 2020 truncated season proved anything, it’s that the collective bargaining agreement talks this offseason are going to be tense. With months before the end of the season, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred reportedly already has its eyes set on one rule change to include in the next CBA. According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, MLB may look to expand the postseason field to 14 teams in the next collective bargaining negotiations.

    Shanghai (China), Jul 30 (.) .- The technology company Didi, known as the “Chinese Uber”, denied the information published in the international press that it is considering going public after the investigations opened by Beijing. “Rumors that Didi would be delisting on the stock market are false information. Currently, the company is actively and comprehensively cooperating with cybersecurity investigations” initiated by the Chinese authorities, the company said in a short message posted on its official account. of the social network Weibo, the Chinese equivalent of Twitter. The American newspaper The Wall Street Journal yesterday published an article in which it assured, citing “sources close to the matter”, that Didi would be considering this operation to “appease” the Chinese authorities and offset the losses of investors. The company debuted in New York on June 30, raising about $ 4.4 billion (about 3,703 million euros) and placing its market valuation at about $ 80 billion (about 67,333 million euros). However, since then its stock market value has plummeted more than 30% following the cybersecurity investigation announced by the Chinese authorities just two...
    San Francisco is considering a congestion pricing plan that would charge motorists for entering the busy downtown core -- but only if they make more than $46,000 per year. The San Francisco County Transportation Authority is leading the city’s study on the proposal to charge a fee to any drivers who enter the downtown zone, details of which were reported by the San Francisco Chronicle. London has used a similar congestion charge scheme for nearly a decade, but it does not include an income threshold. New York City is currently considering a daily charge of $14 for motorists who enter certain parts of Manhattan. The proposal in San Francisco would charge the full fee of $6.50 to any driver making more than $100,000, with discounts for those who make less, and no fee at all for anyone making less than $46,000.  San Francisco is considering a congestion pricing plan that would charge motorists for entering the busy downtown core -- but only if they make more than $46,000 per year The proposal is considering two zones, one smaller (dark orange)...
    NEW YORK (AP) — Bitcoin’s price surged again Monday after speculation that Amazon may be entering the cryptocurrency sector after it posted a job seeking a “digital currency and blockchain product lead.” Bitcoin jumped more than 14% in the past 24 hours, nearly reaching $40,000 per unit before settling closer to $37,000. The five-week intra-day high reached Monday comes after a long slide where it dipped under $30,000 from an April high of nearly $65,000. There is also speculation that the price surge may have also been a result of traders buying up bitcoin to fill positions they were short on, having bet its value would fall further. But it’s difficult if not impossible to track short positions on the cryptocurrency. Amazon’s job listing says the company is looking for “an experienced product leader to develop Amazon’s Digital Currency and Blockchain strategy and product roadmap.” The Seattle-based online retail giant currently has 74 listings for jobs whose descriptions include the words “blockchain,” the backbone of cryptocurrencies, many dating back to earlier this year. However, the jobs are not...
    San Francisco officials are working to fix the trash problem in the city, though the hefty price tag could hamper their efforts. A committee on the board of supervisors learned Wednesday that a batch of the new, custom-made prototype trashcans they want to place throughout the city will cost between $12,000 and $20,000 apiece. GEORGIA LT. GOV. GEOFF DUNCAN TELLS GOP HONESTY IS BEST 'MEDICINE' FOR 2022 If the can were to be mass-produced, it would drop the cost of each trash can to an estimated $2,000 to $3,000. “Our streets and our sidewalks are a mess, and the cans we have out there now are actually part of the problem,” said supervisor Matt Haney, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. “At this point, they’ve already come up with designs, we won’t save time now to go backwards, but it’s really frustrating that they chose this route.” Going to momentarily forget about a decade-plus of misplaced priorities that removed trash cans from the streets of San Francisco — and instead just look at the snazzy new designs.

    President Joe Biden addressed unrest in Cuba on Thursday by calling communism “a failed system,” and said he was considering measures to aid Cubans that included Covid-19 vaccines and the provision of internet access. “Communism is a failed system, universally failed system,” Biden told reporters at a joint press conference with German Prime Minister Angela Merkel. “I don’t see socialism as a very useful substitute, but that is another story.” He also called Cuba a “failed state” and said he was considering “a number of things” to help the Cuban people, but said “it would require a different circumstance or a guarantee” the measures “would not be taken advantage of by the government.” He said allowing Cubans to send remittances back to Cuba was one option that was off the table due to the fact it was “highly likely” the Cuban regime would confiscate them. “We have a covid problem in Cuba,” he added. “I would be prepared to give significant amounts of vaccine if, in fact, I was assured that an international organization would administer those vaccines and do it...
    The Biden administration is near completion of an overall review of U.S. sanctions meant to punish or push nations like Iran, North Korea, and Russia.  The result is moving toward efforts that rely more on U.S. allies and sanctions that are retooled in a way meant to mitigate impacts on ordinary citizens – but could result in peeling back efforts meant to nudge outlaw regimes like Iran and North Korea. The U.S. imposed sanctions have had pronounced effects on the economies of Iran and Venezuela, but have yet to bring about political change policymakers hoped for. President Joe Biden's administration is nearing completion of a security review of U.S. sanctions policy 'Our focus is on making sure that we’re moving from unilateral action, which has been what has defined U.S. policy over the last four years, to really working with our partners,” a senior administration official told The Wall Street Journal, which reported the administration has 'nearly completed' its review. The Treasury Department is leading a review that 'seeks to identify ways to promote a warranted, strategic, and judicious...

    Jason Miller, who served as former President Donald Trump's spokesman since he left the White House, is leaving his post to join an unidentified tech start-up firm.  Miller will become the CEO of the company – which Trump is reportedly considering for his own use. The former president has been hunting for a new media platform amid ongoing bans by Twitter and Facebook.  Miller will continue to operate within Trump's circle, a source told DailyMail.com, adding that there isn't an immediate start date or official announcement. The unidentified company owns one of the social media platforms Trump is said to be considering for his next move.  Politico reported the move late Thursday Thursday. Miller has fielded queries on Trump's behalf since Trump skipped Joe Biden's inauguration and decamped first to Mar-a-Lago then to his private club in Bedminster, New Jersey.  He also served as a senior advisor to Trump's unsuccessful 2020 reelection campaign. Since January, he has helped develop statements Trump fired off from his 'Save America' PAC that frequently skewered President Joe Biden, in a break with tradition for recent...
    First son Hunter Biden said he's considering penning a sequel to his memoir "Beautiful Things," despite its collecting dust on bookstore shelves since publication, selling fewer than 11,000 copies in the first week of its release, even after a whirlwind press tour. The sequel, Biden explained, will focus on his relationship with wife Melissa Cohen, a South African filmmaker he met in 2019 and married shortly after, and her role in helping him recover from his crack addiction. "That’s where the book ends, but the one thing I really do feel almost an obligation to speak about or write about in the future is where the real hard work begins," Biden told the Mad World podcast. "I got particularly lucky."​ CRITICS SLAM 'UTTERLY DECEITFUL' MEDIA AFTER HUNTER BIDEN ADMITS LAPTOP COULD HAVE BEEN HIS "You had to have someone there who was willing to make sure 24/7 you would not give in to those urges," he added of Cohen.

                        A member of the Senate State and Local Government Committee is an attorney with a law firm that could benefit from the passage of the legislation enabling Randy Boyd’s taxpayer-funded baseball stadium in Knoxville. Democrat Sen. Jeff Yarbro of Nashville sits on the Senate State and Local Government Committee, the first stop for SB 0783. The bill would redistribute the state and local sales tax revenue collected within one-quarter mile of the center point of Boyd’s stadium to the newly-formed sports authority in order to pay off the taxpayer-funded debt for the stadium. Normal partisan politics would call for a Democrat to oppose taxpayer funding that would benefit a multi-millionaire, hundreds of times over, who also happens to be a Republican, as evidenced by Boyd’s 2018 primary run for governor. But Yarbro is also an attorney with Bass, Berry & Sims, a Tennessee-based law firm with more than 260 attorneys with dozens of service areas. One of those service areas is public financing for government entities. In fact,...
    A bill being considered in California would prevent large retailers from displaying boy and girl signage for the toy and child care aisles. The bill, Assembly Bill 1084, would require retailers that have 500 or more employees to “to maintain undivided areas of its sales floor where the majority of those items being offered are displayed, regardless of whether an item has traditionally been marketed for either girls or for boys,” according to The Sacramento Bee. Additionally, signage indicating whether a children’s toy is for boys or girls would not be allowed, and online retailers who conduct business in California would have to label toy and child care sections with unisex labels. TENNESSEE BILL MANDATING SCHOOL ATHLETES ALIGN WITH THEIR SEX AT BIRTH HEADS TO STATE'S HOUSE The bill is co-authored by Assemblyman Evan Low and Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia, both Democrats, and would take effect on Jan. 1, 2024, if passed and would penalize retailers with a $1,000 fine. Low said he was inspired to bring the bill forward by Target’s decision in 2015 to remove gender-based signs....
    What’s next for Junior dos Santos and Alistair Overeem? The end of a pair of classic UFC runs came to an end on March 3, when it was reported that the promotion had parted ways with both Junior dos Santos and Alistair Overeem. 3. ONE ChampionshipTo be honest, the Professional Fighters League (PFL) may have been a better third option over ONE Championship. But, the 2021 PFL rosters are locked in place. The PFL would be a possibility if either man is willing to wait until the 2022 season, but that’d be a while out of action — and considering the veteran status of Overeem and dos Santos, and both possibly winding down ‚— that might be too long a wait. The only way this might be a bit more possible is if they do one-off bouts — especially if they somehow wanted to give one to Overeem for a retirement bout. But considering that second part is doubtful and the PFL has their 2021 rosters, let’s focus on ONE. Just like the PFL and their recent big-name signings, ONE...
    The presenter Leticia Sabater. (Photo: GTRES) This Wednesday dawned with the tragic news of the death at 39 years of the singer Álex Casademunt, contestant of the first edition of Triumph operation (OT) after suffering a traffic accident late Tuesday in Mataró (Barcelona). The reactions of the world of music, of art, of his companions of the TVE program and many other acquaintances and relatives have been instantaneous. One of them, however, has caused a stir on Instagram: that of Leticia Sabater. The presenter has given her particular goodbye to Alex on the social network but publishing a photo that many have not liked. In the image she appears posing before the camera, at which she stares, and showing two tattoos on her arms. Many followers have shown their perplexity when considering that this photo has nothing to do with condolences and considering it very inappropriate. In the same publication, Sabater wrote: “Álex rests in peace, I was lucky enough to enjoy with you and meet you on some occasions, and I take back the memory of a great person,...
    Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is still open to diving into politics. During a 2017 appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," the star said that he was "seriously considering" a run for president. Nowadays, he's further alluding to a possible run with his new sitcom "Young Rock," which chronicles his younger years.

    New York : The content removed included supposedly false preventive measures against COVID-19, and exaggerated cures. Photo: Luca Sammarco / Pexels Facebook and Instagram have removed more than 1 million pieces of content during the last three months of 2020 for containing information that they considered erroneous about covid-19. This content included allegedly bogus preventative measures against COVID-19, the respiratory disease caused by the new coronavirus, and exaggerated cures, Facebook Vice President of Integrity Guy Rosen said Thursday. Facebook has taken a tougher stance on health misinformation since the coronavirus pandemic began. Monday, Facebook said it is expanding a list of discredited claims about covid-19 and vaccines that it will not allow to circulate on its platforms.. Some of those claims that he considers false include claiming that the coronavirus is man-made, or manufactured, or that vaccines are more dangerous than contracting the disease. Facebook and Instagram groups, pages, and accounts that repeatedly share these false claims could be removed entirely. “Once the pandemic is over, we will continue to speak with health authorities and...
