President Joe Biden on Friday rounded out his White House staff with a top adviser who has advocated for breaking up Big Tech companies along with a host of new appointments focused on COVID-19, criminal justice and the U.S. economy. The White House announced six additional staffers to its National Economic Council, including Columbia University professor Tim Wu, who coined the term "net neutrality" and has warned against an economy dominated by a few giant firms. "I think breakups or undoing of mergers are actually called for more than we have appreciated in the last few decades," Wu has said previously about Big Tech companies.

Aposhian v. Wilkinson, et al.Washington, D.C., March 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A majority en banc panel in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit voted 6-5 today to vacate the court’s Sept. 4, 2020 order granting en banc rehearing of Aposhian v. Wilkinson. It also reinstated the court’s deeply flawed May 7, 2020 opinion, which invoked the Chevron doctrine to deny NCLA client Clark Aposhian’s appeal of his challenge to the bump stock ban imposed by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in March of 2019. As a result, Chief Judge Tymkovich, writing for himself and four other dissenting members of the Court, compared Chevron to “Lord Voldemort”—a character from the Harry Potter series considered to be the most powerful and dark wizard of all time—because litigants must now be afraid of even mentioning the case. “Under the panel majority’s theory, a party that challenges an agency’s interpretation of a rule is forced to dance around Chevron, even where the government has not invoked it. Chevron becomes the Lord Voldemort of administrative law, ‘the-case-which-must-not-be-named.’ And litigants bold enough to expressly oppose Chevron in their briefing will be left guessing whether their reference to the case was fleeting or perfunctory enough to avoid making an invitation. All the while, courts are given a troubling amount of freedom when deciding whether to use Chevron—discretion that will dictate the outcome in many cases.” In his appeal, Mr. Aposhian asked whether the Chevron doctrine applies when the agency does not invoke it and whether the Chevron doctrine may apply to criminal regulations given that the rule of lenity requires courts to construe ambiguous laws away from imposing criminal liability. By allowing ATF to create new criminal liability here, according to the dissenting judges, “the Final Rule violates the separation of powers” and the “delegation [of Congressional power] raises serious constitutional concerns by making ATF the expositor, executor, and interpreter of criminal laws.” The case also raised key issues about whether an agency can rewrite a federal criminal law. Mr. Aposhian argues that the National Firearms Act is not ambiguous and bump stocks are not machineguns, which is the same position the Department of Justice had taken in every prior machine gun possession case it has prosecuted in the last 30+ years. The dissenting judges agree, “The statute’s plain meaning unambiguously excludes bump stocks.” ATF’s rule, however, rewrites the federal law and declares that every person who lawfully purchased a bump stock is now a federal felon. NCLA will continue to litigate this case, which may include seeking review in the U.S. Supreme Court. On March 8, NCLA will file its opening brief in another case challenging the bump stock ban, Cargill v. Wilkinson, et al., in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. NCLA released the following statements: “Five members of the Tenth Circuit recognized that not only was the bump stock ban an invalid rule, but also that it violated the basic structure of the Constitution by empowering a prosecutorial agency to rewrite the federal criminal law. The majority’s dangerous and misguided decision must not stand.” — Caleb Kruckenberg, Litigation Counsel, NCLA “Rather than bring clarity to a deeply confused area of administrative law, a majority of the Tenth Circuit has decided to wave its magic wand and Vanish this case from the docket. However, the manifold problems with Chevron deference have not disappeared. If anything, today’s antics have further underscored the mischief that this doctrine causes.” — Mark Chenoweth, General Counsel, NCLA For more information about this case visit here.

On Friday, the U.S. Senate voted against Sen. Bernie Sanders’ proposal to raise the national minimum wage from $7.25 to $15. One of the votes that helped knock down the progressive proposal came from Arizona’s Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema. But Sinema didn’t just vote to keep poverty wages in place — she actually dressed up, carrying a Lululemon bag, and brought a cake. Yes, the senator literally carried a cake to the Senate floor to give a proud “thumbs down” to keeping the $15-per-hour wage provision in the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief plan, a video of which quickly went viral. Following the incident, a spokesperson tried to clarify that Sinema brought the cake for Senate staffers who had been working all night — not as an homage to Marie Antoinette’s “let them eat cake.” But no one online is buying these excuses, and sure enough, “Marie Antoinette” started trending on Twitter after Sinema’s vote. “She’s decided she’s going to be a media darling as Marie Antoinette of the establishment. Dress in a super fun way, do performatively hip thumbs downs as she votes to kill higher wages & now rub it in with symbolic cake we can all eat instead of higher salaries. #CorporateTool,” Cenk Uygur, the host of The Young Turks, tweeted. A former senior advisor to Sen. Sanders tweeted: “839k people in Arizona make under $15 an hour. They need a raise, and they deserve a better Senator than [Kyrsten] Sinema.” Actual video of Senator Sinema voting no to the minimum wage amendment: pic.twitter.com/930vltqK2n— 🌻The Official New York Socialist ✡️ (@TheNYSocialist) March 5, 2021 Remind me what happened to the last rich, powerful white woman who got a cutesy “let them eat cake” attitude while her country was starving https://t.co/7dDsCBbgUY— Hayley Farless McMahon (@McMisoprostol) March 5, 2021 Honestly until Krysten Sinema bisexual women were often represented in popular culture as straight or suicidal. Hoping now we can get some representation for keeping Americans in poverty!— Kate Willett (@katewillett) March 5, 2021 She’s decided she’s going to be a media darling as Marie Antoinette of the establishment. Dress in a super fun way, do performatively hip thumbs downs as she votes to kill higher wages & now rub it in with symbolic cake we can all eat instead of higher salaries. #CorporateTool https://t.co/IvbzF7NfOj— Cenk Uygur (@cenkuygur) March 5, 2021 Following the vote, Sinema tweeted: “I understand what it is like to face tough choices while working to meet your family’s most basic needs. I also know the difference better wages can make.” She added that the Senate should hold an “open debate” on raising the minimum wage. “I will keep working with colleagues in both parties to ensure Americans can access good-paying jobs, quality education, and skills training to build more economically sound secure lives for themselves and their families.” The only problem here is that none of this is actually possible unless the national minimum wage is no longer a “starvation wage,” as Sen. Sanders has put it. Maybe if Sinema made $7.25 an hour instead of the Senate’s almost $200,000-a-year salary, she’d understand this a little better. Like what you see?

Glenn Perry, a Dubai-based singer, songwriter, and producer, shares his story behind his latest song, Hello Dubai. Dubai Music School Glenn Perry, a Dubai-based singer, songwriter, and producer, shares his story behind his latest song, Hello Dubai. Dubai, UAE, March 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A song is a story of our life and "Hello Dubai" is another life journey from the legendary artist, Mr. Glenn Perry. Throughout his career, Glenn has released 15 albums and over 40 singles; recently, he released his latest song entitled "Hello Dubai," which has deep meaning in his music career. 'With my songs, I wish to sing love and hope into the world', Glenn says. Looking back for more than 40 years ago, young Glenn reached Dubai, waiting for an agent who offered him a job to perform in a hotel, but the agent never showed up and didn't even pick up his call. Glenn continued his steps to Jumeirah, Satwa, Bur Dubai, then to Karama to find a place to stay, drenched in sweat carrying a backpack and his guitar. In the middle of the night, a hulking South Asian man finally let him stay on his bed spaces with the money he will pay after finding work and using Glenn's passport as a guarantee. Filled with just a simple meal of kuboos (Arabic bread) and tap water, Glen went to several hotels hunting for jobs but always turned down. He found no luck in non-musical jobs as well due to lack of experience. The landlord soon began to curse him daily as Glenn couldn't afford to pay 670 Dirhams for his 3-month rent. He was also forbidden to play his music inside the apartment and would practice every day at the beach. Rome Does Not Build in One Day On one lucky day, Glenn turned up for an audition at a newly opened Dubai Marine Hotel (presently the Ascot Hotel) dressed in a faded oxford shirt and an old pair of jeans, competing with 25 singers dressed as rock stars for the audition. Yet misfortune struck once more. His name was not called as it did not appear on the list. New hope came when the General Manager came out, welcomed, and requested Glenn to sing after receiving his demo and CV. Check on Glenn's complete bio here: https://glennperry.us. Life became more complicated, miserable, and depressing when he didn't hear anything back from the hotel for a week. As he keeps practicing at the beach, finally, the landlord dropped a bomb on his head, rudely grabbed Glenn by the neck and pinned him against the wall, saying, "Today is your last day." The Universe shows its magic. The hotel General Manager visited Glenn on the same evening and took him to the hotel to sign a three-month contract. Glenn Perry passed the audition. With a luxurious privilege of a free hotel room, three meals per day, free laundry, drinks between shows, three 45-minute sets, and a monthly salary of 23,000 Dirhams, Glenn suddenly becomes a star. On the night of the grand opening, the club was packed. Glenn got thunderous applause after he sang his first song. Everybody got up on the dance floor and began dancing to his music. It was overwhelming. Every night, the crowds increased in size. Night after night, it was crammed. As a result, his contract was extended for over two years to perform at the Dubai Marine Hotel. From Glenn Perry to the world, this is "Hello Dubai", https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mtwBBaulYK8. About Glenn Perry Growing up in a small town, little Glenn knew that he would spread his wings and leave one day. He picked up the guitar at the age of three and often not knowing precisely what he was playing, he instinctively felt what the song needed. With his warmth and strong voice from his heart, Glenn's first album, 'Paradize, was released in 1990, and soon enough, Glenn Perry has performed on international stages all over the world. His song "Laila" and "Tonight" were the greatest MTV hits in the 1900s and years after he has won 4 American Music Awards, The Akademia "Artist of the year 2019", The Akademia "Artist Vision Award of the year 2020" (USA), and US Global Music Awards.

Three Venezuelan men pleaded guilty to helping organize an ill-conceived invasion last year to remove President Nicolás Maduro. In Friday’s hearing before a Colombian court, the men acknowledged their role alongside Jordan Goudreau, a former American Green Beret and Iraq war veteran, in organizing a rag tag army of a few dozen Venezuelan military deserters intent on overthrowing Venezuela’s socialist leadership. “I apologize to the Colombian government,” one of the men, Maj. Juvenal Sequea, told a judge in Bogota on Friday as he and two other accepted lighter charges of providing advice and logistical support to illegal armed groups.

NASA's Mars rover Perseverance has taken its first, short drive on the surface of the red planet, two weeks after the robot science lab's picture-perfect touchdown on the floor of a massive crater, mission managers said on Friday. The six-wheeled, car-sized astrobiology probe put a total of 6.5 meters (21.3 feet) on its odometer on Thursday during a half-hour test spin within Jezero Crater, site of an ancient, long-vanished lake bed and river delta on Mars. Taking directions from mission managers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) near Los Angeles, the rover rolled 4 meters (13.1 feet) forward, turned about 150 degrees to its left and then drove backward another 2.5 meters (8.2 feet).
