U.S. President Joe Biden said on Saturday he will raise this year's cap on refugees.That comes a day after drawing criticism from Democratic lawmakers for keeping the historically low cap set by predecessor Donald Trump of 15, 000. Biden signed an order Friday to extend that admissions cap through the end of September. That also effectively shelved a plan announced in February to increase the cap by more than four times. While the asylum system used by migrants is distinct from the refugee program, one U.S. official told Reuters that Biden's approach appears to have tied the two together. That source said that there were concerns over admitting more refugees at a time of rising numbers of migrants arriving at the border with Mexico, as well as not wanting to look 'too open' or 'soft'. Refugees are vetted while they are still overseas, unlike migrants who arrive at a U.S. border and then request asylum. Trump's cap was set partly to limit immigration, and Biden's order to KEEP it was a blow to refugee advocacy groups who wanted the Democratic president to move swiftly to reverse the policy.White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Friday the new refugee cap will be expected to cover the rest of this fiscal year, and would be announced by May 15.Though she added that the 62,500 figure is unlikely because of how low the current number already is.
More directors could be pushed off next week as aerospace firm tries to recover its reputation after 737 Max problems and Covid downturn Family members of those who died in the twin 737 Max crashes hold pictures of the victims as a congressional hearing in Washington in October 2019. The former chief executive Dennis Muilenburg is front right. Photograph: Sarah Silbiger/Reuters Two more top-level directors could be ousted from Boeing’s board of directors next week as family members of the victims of two fatal crashes of its 737 Max jets join shareholders to push for further high-level reforms at the aerospace giant. The $146bn Chicago-headquartered company holds its annual meeting on Tuesday as it attempts to recover its financial and reputational poise in the wake of the grounding of its 737 Max planes and the pandemic’s upending of the commercial travel market. Boeing has made changes to the membership and structure of its board since a second 737 Max crashed in Ethiopia in 2019, including seven directors who have already left or are due to step down next week. The changes, however, have not included two key executives under attack from some family members and shareholders, the chairman, Larry Kellner, and Edmund Giambastiani, who heads the board’s safety panel. “This is a board of private equity and celebrity politicians and failed GE cost-cutting people that are draining the company’s legacy assets for current gain for themselves and the shareholders,” said Michael Stumo, whose 24-year-old daughter Samya Rose died in the Ethiopian Airlines flight 302 crash. Speaking to the Guardian, Stumo said Boeing had fired hundreds of engineers, cut corners on quality, and used profits to buy back stock options for executives. “They’re trying to keep up with the Facebooks and the Googles on the stock price, rather than using their enormous resources and legacy to make fantastic quality and safe airplanes,” Stumo said. Since the crashes, Boeing has added four new members to its board. Kellner, the former chief executive of the old US airline Continental, said earlier this year that the board would work to identify “diverse candidates with appropriate expertise who bring qualified perspectives”. Boeing says its slate of 10 directors up for re-election includes two women and two people of color. But recent reports, including one in the Wall Street Journal, have indicated that the challenges facing Boeing have hindered the company in acquiring new directors. Fallout from the 737 Max crashes continues to reverberate after a series of congressional hearings unearthed a “culture of concealment” at the company, and evidence that the company had ignored clear warnings from engineers that the model’s anti-stall technology was unreliable. While an official Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) report into the crashes has yet to be issued, Boeing has fought an intense PR campaign to win public acceptance of the 737 Max – which it now refers to as the 737-8 – after it went through modifications to achieve re-certification by air safety regulators – whom many believe were sidelined during the plane’s original safety certification. In the process, Boeing has made changes to its board’s oversight of management as part of what the chief executive, David Calhoun, a board member since 2009, has described as a “top-to-bottom” safety and engineering overhaul. The changes include a policy calling for an independent chairman and a new committee focused on safety. But proxy advisory firms are divided on whether reforms have gone far enough. One of those, Institutional Shareholder Services, has credited Boeing for “significant board and management changes, and reforms to the company’s safety and compliance processes” and recommends that investors re-elect the company’s board of directors. But another proxy-advisory firm, Glass Lewis, has recommended that shareholders vote against the re-election of Kellner and Giambastiani. “We believe they are in part responsible for the board’s failings in regard to its risk assessment and management,” Glass Lewis wrote in a 26 March report. “We question whether these directors should continue to serve on the company’s board.” Boeing, meanwhile, points to the board’s four new directors as evidence of the board’s “deep commitment to refreshing its membership” and says its “highly qualified, diverse board” has a mix of experiences needed to oversee the company’s management. But Stumo maintains that shareholders should force Kellner and Giambastiani out next week. He said: “We know know that instead of doing something after the first crash [Lion Air flight 610] they fired up the public relations team to blame others and made false assertions of safety while collecting their board checks and stock options. Kellner is a private equity guy and failed CEO of Continental, and Giambastiani chaired the safety committee, which did nothing and was totally asleep at the wheel.” Negative reports about interactions between Boeing and the FAA continue to proliferate. In an interview with the Seattle Times last month, an FAA safety engineer and Boeing veteran Joe Jacobsen, who had taken part in the 737 Max’s original certification of the plane’s flight controls, said he believes additional upgrades are needed. Jacobsen also called for the replacement of some of the people at “the highest levels of FAA management”. In its emergency directive after the Lion Air crash, he said, the agency had failed to warn pilots of potential malfunctions in the 737 Max’s throttle controls that may have contributed to the Ethiopian crash. While the 737 Max has returned to service – and Boeing has announced new sales of the jet – problems persist. Earlier this month, US airlines removed 67 of the planes from schedules after Boeing alerted to a potential electrical problem discovered during assembly of a plane in Seattle. Shareholders have relatively limited options to push through changes at next week’s meeting. Directors who fail to win 60% of shareholder votes must offer their resignations. If the board does not accept, they can continue to serve for a further year. That was the process that secured the retirement of two directors, Susan Schwab and Arthur Collins, next week. But investment companies involved in board changes so far, including Blackrock, Vanguard and State Street, have not yet indicated whether they will support or oppose Kellner and Giambastiani. The remaining directors, including Calhoun, are what Stumo calls “representatives of Boeing’s erosion and entropy”. “They stiff-arm whistleblowers and do just enough to meet the lowest possible compliance with FAA rules,” says Stumo. “With its enormous assets and implicit government support, Boeing could make the most fantastic 21st-century airplanes. “But it needs someone with true leadership to clean house, correct the problems supported by a board with experience in engineering and manufacturing.”

Australia is in no rush to reopen its international borders, said the country's Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Sunday.The borders have been closed to all non-citizens and non-residents since March last year.Australian citizens and permanent residents cannot leave the country due to coronavirus restrictions unless they have an exemption.Returning Australians from overseas also have to quarantine in hotels for two weeks at their own expense."I can assure Australians that I will not be putting at risk the way we are living in this country, which is so different to the rest of the world today. "Last week Morrison said they were considering a staggered reopening of its international borders to allow residents who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to travel abroad first.Australia is one of the world's most successful countries to have handled the pandemic with coronavirus cases of around 29, 000 in total.But its nationwide vaccine rollout has been a hot political topic - a source of tension between the states and federal government.Australia had banked on the AstraZeneca vaccine for the majority of its shots, but last week raced to double its Pfizer vaccine order.That followed advice that people under the age of 50 should take Pfizer's vaccine, after European regulators found possible links between AstraZeneca's shot and reports of rare cases of blood clots.The government has since abandoned a goal to vaccinate everyone by the end of 2021.

Senior Saudi and Iranian officials have held direct talks in a bid to repair relations between the two regional rivals, four years after they cut off diplomatic ties, the Financial Times reported https://www.ft.com/content/852e94b8-ca97-4917-9cc4-e2faef4a69c8 on Sunday, citing officials briefed on the discussions. The first round of Saudi-Iranian talks took place in Baghdad on April 9, included discussions about attacks on Saudi Arabia by Yemen's Iran-aligned Houthi group and were positive, the FT report added, citing one of the officials. Saudi authorities did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment, and Iranian officials were not immediately available for comment.
Not since Conor McGregor drew Floyd Mayweather Jr. out of retirement has a boxing vs. MMA crossover fight drawn such attention. Whether or not you like either fighter or the bout itself, the celebrity boxing match between YouTube sensation Jake Paul and former Bellator and ONE Championship titleholder Ben Askren couldn't be ignored. Jake Paul vs Ben Askren results Almost two minutes into the bout, there was little to no action until Jake Paul landed a 1-2 combination that dropped Ben Askren and stopped the fight in the first round. That was it. No action. No build-up. Just a simple two minutes and the fight was over. Paul was definitely the fighter that looked to be in better condition coming into the fight. Askren, who typically fought at 170 pounds in mixed martial arts, weighed in at a much-less-than-lean 191 pounds. Paul, by contrast, looked like he had put in some hard hours training for the fight. It showed even more in the ring. Askren, who said he was getting probably the biggest payday of his career against Paul, danced around the boxing ring without really throwing much of a punch. But less than two minutes into the fight, Paul stung him with a jab and a straight right that put Askren on the canvas. He got up, trying to survive a standing eight count, but the referee waved off the fight, as Triller Fight Club co-founder Snoop Dogg, providing commentary, yelled into the mic, "Finish him, finish him." Askren initially looked upset at the quick stoppage. He later said that he told the referee that he was fine, but the referee said, no, you're not, and then waved off the fight. But that was the end of weeks of build-up. The commentary was certainly a bit off from what is typically considered to be professional in the sports world, but then again, Triller Fight Club isn't your traditional combat sports presentation. Impartiality isn't a requirement. "I thought I was fine, but that's [the referee's] job, if that's what he felt, that's fine," Askren said in his post-fight commentary, also indicating that he wasn't overly fazed by the quick stop. "No, I'm gonna take about a million dollars home in the bank and I'm gonna coach some wrestling," Askren said, adding that he didn't intend to return to combat sports. "I will not be back again. I will not be in any sort of cage." Asked what was next for Paul, Snoop Dogg said that he though "the guy in the pink shorts" would be next, later confirming that he meant Joe Fournier, a 9-0 boxer that stopped musician Reykon earlier in the night on Saturday's boxing card. Paul said he was "going to do whatever" he wanted after beating Askren, before adding, "I don't know what's next for me. I'm just gonna enjoy my life for a second." After the fight, Snoop Dogg was on camera yelling out a message to UFC president Dana White, saying repeatedly, "Dana White, where my money at?" White had said on a Mike Tyson podcast appearance in the lead-up to the fight that he would bet a million dollars that Askren would win. Snoop Dogg countered that the bet should be two million dollars, evidently what he was referring to in his on-air comments.

(Bloomberg) -- Europe’s late but accelerating vaccination push is allowing monetary officials to begin pondering an economic future free of the curse of the coronavirus.While European Central Bank policy makers will reiterate existing emergency stimulus settings with a horizon of March 2022 when they meet by video this week, the step-up in immunizations across the region has emboldened some of them to start a public discussion on what might happen when the pandemic no longer menaces the euro region.There’s a spectrum of views on that outlook. Dutch central bank Governor Klaas Knot favors tapering crisis bond purchases as soon as the third quarter, while his French colleague, Francois Villeroy de Galhau, cites March as a possible end date. President Christine Lagarde reckons monetary support will be needed “well into the recovery.”ECB officials know only too well that weaning financial markets off emergency stimulus is a fraught task. For now, they have the comfort of knowing that they still have time before any winding down of stimulus needs to begin, and in the meantime they can look across the Atlantic for a guide to the pitfalls.The Bank of Canada has already hinted that it might be one of the first Group of Seven institutions to start paring back monetary policy support. At the central bank’s next decision on Wednesday, officials may announce slower bond purchases, a policy shift that their counterparts in Frankfurt can only dream of for now.What Bloomberg Economics Says:“The ECB will no longer have to fret about rising government borrowing costs when it meets on April 22. A full assessment of the pace of asset purchases will not happen until June, but the tone of this week’s press conference may offer some hints on the debate to come. The hawks are likely to focus on the successful containment of bond yields and the economic recovery, while the doves will be more cautious.”--David Powell, senior euro-area economist.

Reports on manufacturing, services, new and existing homes sales are also due out.Officials at the Federal Reserve are in blackout ahead of their next policy meeting on April 27-28.If the Canadian central bank’s decision on Wednesday proceeds to detail next steps to pare bond purchases, such a roadmap would set policy apart from the neighboring U.S., where the Fed isn’t expected to attempt a so-called taper until next year.The BOC has been buying a minimum of C$4 billion ($3.2 billion) in government bonds each week, accumulating more than C$250 billion over the past year. That pace is likely no longer warranted with an outlook that appears to improving dramatically by the week, helped by a recovery in commodity prices and a robust housing market.Meanwhile, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will make a pitch for tens of billions in additional spending to support the recovery.For more, read Bloomberg Economics’ full Week Ahead for the U.S.AsiaChina is signaling it’s open for business with the resumption of its high-profile Boao forum, where key leaders, senior government officials and business executives will discuss the economy’s outlook in a post-pandemic world.

DETROIT, April 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sports betting can be a lot of fun - but only if you choose the right online sports betting site. There’s a lot of choices out there, with America being home to hundreds of sportsbooks. Some are great, some are decent, and some are really bad. To help you choose the one that’s right for you, we’ve put together this article of the 10 best online sports betting sites of 2021. We’ve cut to the chase, narrowed things down, and based our criteria according to things like bonuses, user interface, and location.

But first, this is how we ranked the sportsbooks. Ranking Methodology: How We Found the Best Sports Betting Sites To make sure we were able to find the best sportsbooks of 2021, we conducted a survey among 119 participants and used a specific ranking methodology. This allowed us to closely scrutinize each site so that you get to choose from the absolute best of the best. Reputation Reputation is a key indicator of the quality of a sportsbook. Reputation is based on the age of the site, its gambling license, and user sportsbook reviews written by genuine sports fans. We chose reputation as a ranking methodology because it guarantees safety, security, and reliable payouts. The more reputable a site is, the more trustworthy it is. Sports Variety All sports betting sites offer markets for big U.S. sports. But from our research, we know that most sports bettors also enjoy betting on more niche sports, such as cycling and UFC. As such, we took sports variety into account when ranking our sites. Odds and Lines It’s really important that you find a sportsbook that offers competitive odds and lines, because this will maximize your potential profit. The last thing you want is to feel as though you’ve been shortchanged because a sportsbook offered poor odds compared to another site. We compared odds and lines between numerous sports betting sites and rated them according to how competitive their odds are, and how early they get their lines out. Bonuses and Promotions There are a few things to consider when it comes to bonuses and promotions, including the amount offered and the variety. We also took into account wagering requirements and how quickly you can receive any winnings made from your bonuses. The Best Online Sportsbooks Reviewed 1. Bovada - Top Pick Bovada is the absolute standout when it comes to gambling sites in the U.S. It’s a sportsbook and a casino, and as such will benefit those who prefer to have a go at betting on their favorite sport, before spending some time playing poker, blackjack, or any other card or table game.

Sportsbetting.ag - Best Overnight Lines In our research, Sportsbetting.ag and BetOnline both came out on top when it came to odds and lines, which makes a lot of sense as BetOnline acquired majority ownership in 2012. Differently from BetOnline, Sportsbetting.ag has better and more sharp overnight lines. Reviewing college football games on Saturday night, and NFL games on Sunday evening, can give you an unfair advantage.

After all, the Wild West was a Mecca for gamblers, while Las Vegas is arguably the most famous (and infamous) Gambling Capital of the World. And yet, when it comes to online gambling, and sports betting in particular, America has been a bit slow on the uptake. Back in the mid-nineties, online gambling was barely legal anywhere in the U.S. Things have changed since, but it’s been a slow change. For example, it was only early in 2021 that Michigan finally legalized online gambling, while New Jersey legalized it in 2018. As the situation currently stands in mid-2021, any U.S state that wants to apply to legalize sports betting can do so. But currently, not every single state has. Around half of U.S. states have legalized sports betting, including PA, NJ, NM, NV, IA, and RI, but a number haven’t even introduced a bill yet. These include TX, FL, and GA. As it stands, then, you can only bet within state lines where online gambling is allowed. You must also be aged at least 21 years old before you place a sports betting wager, and you must abide by that state’s particular sports betting laws. For instance, there are some states that don’t allow you to bet on local college leagues and teams. As such, it's really important that you learn the sports betting laws of the state you’re in before placing a bet. Online Sports Betting FAQ Is online sports betting legal in the U.S?
