BRF, which did not disclose the value for either transaction, said the acquisitions would give it a roughly 10% share of Brazil’s pet food market, which has been on an upswing, leading to new entrants and initial public offerings. BRF said it made the acquisitions through its pet products subsidiary BRF Pet SA. In the pet food market for over 46 years, Mogiana Alimentos specializes in animal nutrition products for dogs and cats, BRF said in the filing.

Black Voters Matter has embarked on what the national advocacy and policy group has christened a Freedom Ride for Voting Rights. Its goals, BVM co-founders LaTosha Brown and Cliff Albright note, are threefold: to amplify the need for federal voting rights legislation, build Black voting power, and advocate for Washington, D.C., statehood. People gather during the launch of the "Freedom Ride for Voting Rights" in Jackson, Miss., on June 19, 2021. Founded in 1869, the historically Black college became one of the epicenters of the civil rights movement. “Amen!”Barbara Arnwine, a lawyer, updated the crowd on voting rights legislation before Congress.

WASHINGTON — Vice President Kamala Harris, after weeks of pressure from her political opponents, will visit the U.S.-Mexico border Friday, as part of her role addressing the root causes of migration. "[Harris' trip to the border] is really about building on the work that she has been doing. Republicans criticized Harris' decision to visit El Paso rather than other parts of the state like, the Rio Grande Valley, which see significantly more border crossings. Although partisan politics are likely to hang over Harris' trip Friday, she will also be forced to confront major policy issues. Rohini Kosoglu, domestic policy adviser to the vice president and one of Harris' longest serving aides, said that Harris "has spent her career fighting for immigrants."

Nike Gets Along Fine Without China, for Now

But what that means in its two most important markets, the U.S. and China, is very different. Nike’s total revenue for the quarter ended May 31 grew 21% compared with the same quarter in pre-pandemic 2019. Sales in Greater China, Nike’s fastest-growing market, came in below expectations after a social-media backlash in that country. For the quarter, Nike’s China sales still rose 14% compared with the same period in pre-pandemic 2019. Nike seemed determined not to ruffle any more feathers on its earnings call on Thursday, simply referring to China’s slowdown as “marketplace dynamics.”

Democrats and Republicans alike agree that there’s been a serious spike in violent crime over the last couple of years — the highest in more than a decade. Biden deserves kudos for standing up to his party’s loud progressive wing and insisting on taking action before more Americans needlessly die. The White House’s fact sheet on Biden’s crime-fighting plan talks of “gun violence resulting from the pandemic,” “gun violence exacerbated by the pandemic” and “gun violence associated with the pandemic.” In fact, the homicide spike “actually began in 2019, prior to the pandemic,” noted the National Commission on Covid-19 and Criminal Justice, a bipartisan panel assessing the pandemic’s effect on the justice system. More Americans believe violent crime is a “very big problem” than think the same about the coronavirus, a recent Yahoo News/YouGov poll found. In fact, violent crime was respondents’ top concern, beating the economy and race relations.

El Salvador's President Nayib Bukele "presented us with a tough challenge of 1,500 ATMs, we will go for that, but in phases. "Initially we are going to bring dozens of machines, (we'll) test what the business model is like in El Salvador, which will probably be different than in the United States," Goldenhörn added.

Instead of talking about what ails me, he wanted to talk about what ails us. After much steam had been let off, I wanted to say, Enough with American vitals — what about my own? Almost 40 percent of Americans have little or no confidence in newspapers, according to Gallup’s annual surveys — up from 24 percent in 2000. But the “press,” where free speech and all its cacophonous chaos reside, has been a punching bag for some time. Diminished confidence in elections is among the worst of the many awful legacies of Donald Trump.

U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris delivers remarks at Clark Atlanta University in Atlanta, Georgia, U.S. June 18, 2021. It will be Harris' first visit to the border since becoming vice president five months ago. "The Vice President's trip to Guatemala and Mexico earlier this year was about the root causes, and this border visit is about the effects," Harris' spokesperson, Symone Sanders, said. During the trip, Harris said she would visit the border in the near future but was focused on "tangible results" and "opposed to grand gestures." As such, they are unlikely to stop their criticism of Biden's policies, even if Harris visits the border.

Last year, during the height of the pandemic, Wall Street’s six largest banks earned a collective $81 billion. The main reason the biggest banks fared so well during the pandemic was the financial crisis. Fearing the effects of the pandemic, last year regulators told banks to preserve capital by suspending dividends and stock buybacks. Now that the banks have weathered the pandemic and passed this year’s stress test, these restrictions will be removed. An analyst at Barclays predicts that banks will pay out as much as $200 billion to shareholders in the next year.

Workers offload the AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccines under the COVAX scheme against coronavirus disease (COVID-19) at the Aden Abdulle Osman Airport in Mogadishu, Somalia March 15, 2021. The total funds available to cover the cost of delivering the vaccines will rise to $925 million, GAVI said in a statement issued after a two-day board meeting. GAVI's board also set new terms for accessing vaccines, which will disincentivise middle-income nations from participating by insisting they pay for COVAX vaccines fully in advance next year. "Starting in 2022, the model will enable self-financing participants that rely on the facility to access doses to continue procuring vaccines through COVAX under revised terms and conditions," it said. However, the poorest countries, mostly in Africa and Southeast Asia, will keep the same conditions, with little or no costs to buy vaccines.
