FREMONT, California, June 25 (Reuters) - Self-driving tech company Pony.ai, backed by Toyota Motor Corp, is considering going public in the United States to help fund its goal of commercializing driverless ride-hailing services, its chief executive told Reuters. “We’re still debating and considering,” said Peng, when asked about the time frame for a public share sale. Earlier this month, it said it had begun driverless testing on public roads in California’s Fremont and Milpitas ahead of the planned launch of a robotaxi service next year. It has also been testing driverless vehicles in Guangzhou, China. He said the next big challenge is to reduce manufacturing costs for driverless vehicles while expanding into more cities and regions and ensuring safety in different environments.

The MOVE index - a bond market volatility gauge - hit a two-month high on Monday, underscoring those mixed signals and uncertainty about the near-term. In the June 17-24 poll, over 60% of fixed-income strategists, or 25 of 41, who answered an additional question said a significant sell-off in global bond markets was likely over the next three months. (Graphic - Reuters Poll: Major sovereign bond yields outlook, )Still, beyond the near-term, yields on major sovereign bonds were expected to have risen relatively modestly in a year, according to the poll of 80 fixed-income strategists. The Fed’s heavy presence in bond markets as a buyer is expected to prevent a runaway rise in yields, which the central bank will not want to happen. When asked how high would U.S. 10-year Treasury yields rise to over the next three months, the median of 30 analysts was 1.75%, with forecasts ranging between 1.5% and 2.0%.

Celebrities like Jay Leno, who have long profited from jokes about Asian Americans, began to rethink past slights. Asian Americans have dealt with an undercurrent of racism for centuries, since Asian immigrants first arrived in the U.S. more than 150 years ago. “It is violence — especially for a group that has been de-racialized and basically whitened,” Nadia Kim, a professor of sociology and of Asian & Asian American studies, said. Research shows that suicide is the second-leading cause of death for Asian Americans aged 15-34. When looking at women of all racial backgrounds 65 to 84, Asian Americans had the highest suicide rate.

PARIS (Reuters) -A French court has set Sept. 17 as the date for hearing a case brought by the finance ministry against Apple over allegedly abusive contractual terms imposed by the tech giant for selling software on its App Store. FILE PHOTO: An Apple logo hangs above the entrance to the Apple store on 5th Avenue in the Manhattan borough of New York City, July 21, 2015. REUTERS/Mike SegarThe case, judged by Paris’ commercial court, is unlikely to lead to a significant fine if Apple is found guilty, based on previous similar cases. But the court could compel the iPhone maker to change some of its App Store contractual terms. France’s leading startup lobby France Digitale has joined the case, according to a court document seen by Reuters.

Australian shale play Tamboran to debut, defying green energy push

MELBOURNE (Reuters) - Shale gas explorer Tamboran Resources is set to debut on the Australian bourse on June 30 in the country’s biggest oil and gas float in a decade, pitching itself as a growth story despite the world’s push toward greener energy. Tamboran owns assets in the Beetaloo shale sub-basin in the Northern Territory, considered comparable to the prolific Marcellus Shale, the biggest U.S. natural gas field. “If they can get the flow rates that are needed to be economic, the Beetaloo could have quite a big impact on the Australian gas industry,” said Daniel Toleman, an analyst at consultants Wood Mackenzie. The Australian government, eager to see the remote basin developed, has committed A$224 million to improve roads and spur drilling there. Beetaloo gas has a carbon dioxide (CO2) content of just 3%, which the company plans to offset using renewable energy, carbon credits, and carbon capture.

Six-time gold medalist Allyson Felix clinched her fifth Olympic berth on Sunday, in another milestone for the track legend who survived a life-threatening pregnancy and birth just over two years ago. “My first year back was a struggle, and I just kept getting hit with thing after thing,” Felix said. Only a handful of track athletes have won medals and appeared at the Olympics more than Felix, who has three silver medals to go with her golds.

Live Covid-19 Live Updates: Tokyo Olympics Plan to Allow Domestic Spectators The decision indicates a growing certainty that the Games will go ahead, despite months of concern that they could become a superspreader event. The Tokyo Olympics will allow spectators who live in Japan, but with restrictions. Spectators from overseas were barred from attending in March in a major concession to the realities of the pandemic. Japan’s top coronavirus adviser, Shigeru Omi, has consistently warned against allowing spectators, which he believes adds an unnecessary layer of risk. Without enough oxygen, doctors in many places injected patients with steroids, a standard treatment for doctors battling Covid globally.

Arkansas passed one law that requires a 60 percent supermajority of voters for a ballot initiative to pass.

But perhaps the biggest advantage is how lawyers like Mr. Hardman enabled their clients to pursue their foes by winning what one judge called a legal “nuclear weapon” — court orders freezing a defendant’s assets worldwide. These orders are similar to the ones the U.S. government uses against terrorists or arms dealers, except they emerge from civil proceedings. Even lawyers specializing in the freezing orders are uncertain how many are issued. But the fact that London lawyers, judges and private investigators are now deeply immersed in the savage political battles of the post-Soviet world is eliciting concern. “We’re being asked in the U.K. to adjudicate on political dynamics that English courts don’t fully understand,” said Tom Mayne, a researcher at Exeter University, who focuses on how English courts handle corruption cases related to the former Soviet Union.

Texans have spent the week keeping cool by fanning themselves and finding shade following the power grid operator's request that they conserve energy as temperatures rise and several power plants fail. That’s what we expect and plan for,” said Michael Webber, an energy professor at the University of Texas at Austin. ERCOT, which oversees 90 percent of Texas' energy production, on Monday asked residents to limit their electrical usage through Friday, amid an energy emergency with soaring temperatures and a series of mechanical problems at power plants. In fact, Monday’s power crunch included worst-case scenarios such as lower-than-expected wind power, concerns about solar power dropping off at sunset and a larger-than-expected number of breakdowns at traditional power plants. Webber partly blames the shutdowns on climate change, in addition to power plants hitting capacity limits set decades ago.

Manchin has emerged as a key figure in his party's fight to pass federal legislation aimed at protecting voting rights. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has said no Republicans will vote the For the People Act and argued the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act is unnecessary.

In a move toward clean energy, a Florida utility company on Wednesday imploded its last standing coal power plant that has loomed over a small town for more than 25 years. “We’re saying goodbye to coal,” Florida Power and Light, or FPL, spokesperson Jack Eble told NBC West Palm Beach affiliate WPTV. The 495-foot inactive chimney stack was in Indiantown, about 50 miles northwest of West Palm Beach. “This is our last coal-fired plant in the state of Florida,” Eble said. Florida does not currently have any coal reserves or production, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

A terminal replacement plan put on hold due to Covid-19 is back on track, but funding sources for this — and for other airport infrastructure projects around the country — are “simply inadequate,” Miller said. Bing Guan / Bloomberg via Getty ImagesIn 2020, Raleigh-Durham International Airport deferred $96 million in construction projects. In April 2020, San Francisco International Airport announced the postponement of a billion-dollar renovation project for Terminal 3 West, where United Airlines operates. “The pandemic really highlighted the need for our Terminal Modernization Project,” said Christina Cassotis, the airport's CEO. That makes funding for the airport infrastructure projects even more crucial.

"It's a shocking loss," said MiAngel Cody, lead counsel and justice policy analyst at the Decarceration Collective. Terry argued that he should be eligible for a reduced sentence under the First Step Act. President Donald Trump signed the First Step Act at the White House on Dec. 21, 2018. Lower courts ruled against Terry, 33; the Justice Department under then-President Donald Trump argued that the First Step Act didn't apply to him. Jacki Phelps, appellate litigation counsel at the Decarceration Collective, said she believed that the authors of the First Step Act hadn't made a mistake but that the Supreme Court had.
