That’s according to a senior administration official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the official wasn’t authorized to comment publicly on personnel decisions. Malpass, the undersecretary for international affairs at the Treasury Department, has been a sharp critic of the World Bank, especially over its lending to China.___Retail group forecasts solid retail sales growth for 2019NEW YORK (AP) — The National Retail Federation is forecasting that retail sales could increase between 3.8 per cent and 4.4 per cent to more than $3.8 trillion this year as shoppers remain in a mood to spend in a strong economy. The forecast is nearly in line with the 4.6 per cent gain the nation’s largest retail trade group estimated for 2018. Last year’s results are preliminary pending the release of data from the Commerce Department that was delayed because of the government shutdown.___Heavy duty: Detroit 3 all roll out biggest pickups this yearDETROIT (AP) — All three Detroit automakers are rolling out new heavy-duty pickup trucks this year, courting buyers who tow heavy trailers for work or recreation.

Heavy-duty versions, with bigger frames, beds, interiors and engines, make up about 30 per cent of that.___Exxon, Qatar Petroleum to expand LNG export plant in TexasDALLAS (AP) — Exxon and Qatar Petroleum say they will go ahead with plans for a $10 billion project to export liquefied natural gas from a facility in Texas.

Even the most optimistic of experts say it will be 10 years before the cars are everywhere, but others believe it will take decades.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 172.15 points, or 0.7 per cent, to 25,411.52. The tech-heavy Nasdaq composite added 54.55 points, or 0.7 per cent, to 7,402.08.

Rosewater Source: AP/Press Association ImagesDirector: Jon StewartStarring: Gael Garcia BernalRelease date: TBCIn 2009, an Iranian journalist named Maziar Bahari was detained and tortured in Iran for 100 days following an interview he gave regarding the country’s election on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

Big Eyes Source: SuperRadNowDirector: Tim BurtonCast: Christoph Waltz, Amy Adams, Krysten RitterRelease date: TBCWe know that Tim Burton has been a little hit-and-miss of late.

Bahamas Minister of National Security Addresses Illegal Firearms Zero Tolerance

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, October 7, 2017 – Nassau – During his Contribution in The House of Assembly on the Speech from The Throne, on October 4, 2017, Minister of National Security the Hon. Marvin Dames said, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, murder rates in the Caribbean are higher than in any other region of the world.“The CARICOM (Caribbean Community) Regional Task Force on Crime and Security recently commissioned a report on the proliferation of small arms and light weapons in the Caribbean,” Minister Dames said.   “The Report noted that a major factor contributing to the surge of guns-related criminality in the region is the trafficking of narcotics, which has facilitated the availability of firearms.”With that regional context in mind, Minister Dames said, stakeholders know that law enforcement partnerships, intelligence, drug interdiction and gun control must be the focus over the next five years.He pointed out that, as delineated in the speech from the throne, the government is focused on making the nation safer through a number of strategic priorities, including the following: a Zero Tolerance approach to crime; the establishment of a Guns and Gangs Unit; the establishment of a DNA Lab; the detection of financial, commercial and cyber-crimes; and enhanced training across Law Enforcement Agencies.Minister Dames added that other priorities include strengthening partnerships in regional, hemispheric and international organizations; the creation of Neighborhood Safety Programs; engaging members of The Bahamas’ religious and civic communities; increasing youth employability through the Citizen Security Project; anti-corruption legislation; establishing a National Intelligence Agency; and the creation of a Parole and Probation System.He noted that the speech from the throne also articulated a number of ways in which the Government seeks to modernize the Parliamentary and elections processes of The Bahamas including the establishment of an Independent Electoral Commission and Boundaries Commission, the introduction of term limits for Prime Ministers, and the introduction of a recall system for non-performing Members of Parliament.“We are determined to deliver on these commitments; a promise we made to the Bahamian people prior to the May 10, 2017 General Elections,” Minister Dames said.When speaking of the Zero Tolerance Approach, Minister Dames said that, since May 2017, the police had executed the new zero-tolerance approach with precision through aggressive anti-crime operations throughout the capital with a focus on crime hot-spots, prolific offenders, persons with firearms, gang members, persons in violation of their bail, drug peddlers, shutting down drug houses and persons in violation of the nation’s traffic laws.“This new strategy is reaping positive results,” he stated. “Between May and September 2017, the police have arrested over 269 persons for an array of serious offences ranging from murder to robbery.   They have seized over 125 illegal firearms, and 5,316 rounds of ammunition.  In addition 9,381 fixed penalties (traffic tickets) were issued to drivers in violation of our traffic laws.“The police have also ‘ramped up’ their drug interdiction efforts by executing over 140 anti-drug operations since May of this year.   During this time period, over 10,332.15 pounds of marijuana and 1,428.87 pounds of cocaine have been seized.”Drug Enforcement Officers, he added, had executed over 120 search warrants on suspected drug houses and have also searched over 1,186 persons.  A total of 627 persons had been arrested for drug-related offenses, 528 of whom were subsequently charged and placed before the courts, Minister Dames noted.“This clamp-down has resulted in many well-known drug houses, which were operating for far too long in our communities, to be finally shut down,” he said. “Despite these successes, there remains much work to be done.”By: Eric Rose (BIS)Photo caption:  Minister of National Security the Hon.

Pete Buttigieg calls out Google Uber in new economic policy

first_img2:38 Post a comment 0 Now playing: Watch this: Share your voice Can big tech actually be broken up?center_img Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg participates in a Presidential Candidates Forum at the NAACP 110th National Convention on Wednesday. Bill Pugliano / Getty Images Pete Buttigieg, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate and former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, is big tech’s latest critic. His new economic plan, called “A New Rising Tide,” seeks to implement gig worker rights and gender pay transparency, according to a blog post published Friday.Buttigieg said he’ll support the “ABC test” to make sure workers aren’t denied minimum wage and their chance to unionize. The ABC test determines that a worker is “free from employer’s control,” is “performing work outside of the employer’s usual course of business” and works as an “independent business in the industry.” Among other initiatives, the former mayor said he wants to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act — currently awaiting the Senate’s approval — which would ban an employer from using an employee’s past salary history to determine pay. His policy comes at a time when other Democratic presidential candidates have rebuked big tech companies. Tulsi Gabbard on Thursday sued Google, alleging the search giant was “intermeddling” in the election. The $50 million suit claims that Gmail had sent Gabbard’s campaign emails to spam folders. Sen. Elizabeth Warren has been championing the breakup of tech giants, including Amazon, Google and Facebook.”More than half of workers in Google’s offices do not share in Google’s success because they are domestically outsourced temps and contractors,” Buttigieg stated. “Millions of Uber and Lyft drivers lack basic protections because they’re misclassified as independent contractors.”Google has previously come under file about its treatment of employees. Last year, a New York Times report said Android creator Andy Rubin was accused of sexual harassment by a co-worker.  Uber, meanwhile is grappling with its own leadership board. In the past two months, the company has lost three board members, including Arianna Huffington. The ride service says it’s been working with drivers on plans for compensation.”We’ve been at the table with stakeholders offering a plan that would guarantee drivers an earnings floor tied to minimum wage plus expenses; a robust package of portable benefits they can access no matter which rideshare company they drive for,” said a spokesperson for Uber. Google, on the other hand had stated in April that it would require companies that supply its temporary and contract workers to provide full benefits and a $15 minimum wage.  Tags Politics Googlelast_img read more

Barriss will be sentenced Friday in federal court in Wichita, Kansas.
