Trudeau told reporters that his “top priority” was the return of two Canadian citizens being held in China. The two were picked up shortly after Canadian police detained Huawei Technologies Co Ltd’s chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou in December 2018.

REUTERS/Blair GableNEW DELHI (Reuters) - India summoned Canada’s ambassador on Friday and said comments made by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over protests by farmers near Delhi were an interference in its domestic affairs and would seriously hurt bilateral ties. Canada is home to an influential Sikh community and Indian leaders say there are some fringe groups there that are still sympathetic to the cause of an independent Sikh state called Khalistan, carved out of India. The Indian foreign ministry said comments made by Trudeau and other leaders had emboldened radical groups and they were a risk to its diplomatic staff based in Canada. The Indian government has held talks with the farmers to end the impasse and persuade them that farm reforms were in their interest in the long-term.

Millions of U.S. workers have the skills to earn 70 percent more than they do today.

As many as 30 million American workers without four-year college degrees have the skills to realistically move into new jobs that pay on average 70 percent more than their current ones. That estimate comes from a collaboration of academic, nonprofit and corporate researchers who mined data on occupations and skills, The New York Times’s Steve Lohr reports. The findings point to the potential of upward mobility for millions of Americans, who might be able to climb from low-wage jobs to middle-income occupations or higher. But the research also shows the challenge that the workers face: They currently experience less income mobility than those holding a college degree, which is routinely regarded as a measure of skills. “We need to rethink who is skilled, and how skills are measured and evaluated,” said Peter Q. Blair, a labor economist at Harvard, who was a member of the research team.

“Just like the Rose Garden, the virus won’t touch the powerful,” one State Department official said sarcastically, referencing the White House event that became a super-spreader. Pompeo himself will host holiday parties on December 15 and 16, an official confirmed. The Washington Post first reported on Pompeo’s plans to invite hundreds to holiday parties. The State Department did not answer questions about how guests could consume the government-provided food and cocktails while wearing masks. The White House will host as many as 20 receptions in the next few weeks before Christmas.

“We need to rethink who is skilled, and how skills are measured and evaluated,” said Peter Q. Blair, a labor economist at Harvard, who was a member of the research team. The researchers published a broad look at the jobs, wages and skills of workers who have a high school diploma but not a four-year college degree as a National Bureau of Economic Research working paper this year. They found a significant overlap between the skills required in jobs that pay low wages and many occupations with higher pay — a sizable landscape of opportunity. For skills, the researchers used Labor Department classifications. They defined low-wage jobs as those paying less than the nation’s median annual salary of $38,000.

By acquiring Slack for $27.7 billion, Salesforce is gaining not only a workplace chat product, but a product visionary and one of Microsoft's fiercest critics in Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield. As Salesforce strives to become a strong player in collaboration software and more aggressively compete with Microsoft, Butterfield will likely play a key role, they said. With Salesforce buying Slack for $27.7 billion, the cloud giant is acquiring more than just a workplace chat app: It's gaining a product visionary and one of Microsoft's fiercest critics in Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield. "Certainly as we look at the collaboration space Microsoft is the incumbent in there, so it's Microsoft's business to lose," Wettemann said. Given Salesforce's track record with promoting leaders at companies that it acquires — with Quip's Taylor being the best example — it's possible that Butterfield could eventually lead Salesforce's entire collaboration business, William Blair's Bhatia said.

Canada PM Trudeau indicates U.S. border restrictions to last a long time

Trudeau’s comments were a clear indication that the border restrictions will last well into 2021. The two countries have highly integrated economies and Canada sends 75% of its goods exports to the United States every month. “Until the virus is significantly more under control everywhere around the world, we’re not going to be releasing the restrictions at the border,” Trudeau told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. when asked about the issue. But the premiers of Canada’s major provinces have repeatedly said they have no interest in reopening the border as long as cases of COVID-19 continue to escalate in the United States. A second wave is also sweeping across Canada, where authorities are starting to reimpose restrictions on businesses and limiting the size of gatherings.

He had bought department store chain BHS for 200 million pounds in 2000, then Arcadia for 850 million pounds two years later and twice tried, and failed, to buy Marks & Spencer. After the pensions regulator pursued him, Green wrote a cheque for 363 million pounds in 2017 to help plug the BHS pensions fund hole. The collapse of the group is a bitter blow to Green, who has long prided himself on his financial acumen.

UK cuts foreign aid spending commitment, causing outcry

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain reduced its foreign aid spending commitment on Wednesday to 0.5% of gross domestic product from 0.7%, causing an immediate outcry from international development organisations and the spiritual head of the Church of England. Britain's Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak carries the "Spending Review 2020" document as he leaves Downing Street, in London, Britain, November 25, 2020. “Cutting the aid budget during a global pandemic is like closing fire stations during a heatwave,” said Patrick Watt, Director of Policy, Public Affairs and Campaigns at Christian Aid. The 0.7% target, originally introduced by Tony Blair when he was prime minister, was a commitment made by the ruling Conservative Party in the run-up to last year’s election and repeated by Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Prior to Sunak’s announcement, former prime ministers Blair and David Cameron had urged the government to retain the target.

A recent opinion poll showed Sunak was the most popular figure among rank-and-file members of the ruling Conservative Party. The same poll gave Prime Minister Boris Johnson an approval rating of minus 10 percent.

(Reuters) - AvePoint Inc, a cloud data management company backed by investment firm Sixth Street, will go public via a merger with blank-check company Apex Technology Acquisition Corp, in a deal valued at $2 billion, the companies said. AvePoint’s business has benefited from an uptick in adoption of Microsoft Cloud as more people move to work from home during the pandemic. “The Microsoft Cloud ecosystem is a tidal wave sweeping through enterprises,” said Jeff Epstein, co-CEO of Apex and a former Oracle finance boss. Blank-check firm Apex, founded by Epstein and former Goldman Sachs head of technology investment banking Brad Koenig, raised $305 million in September 2019.

FILE PHOTO: Britain's former Prime Ministers Tony Blair and David Cameron attend a memorial service for Lord Paddy Ashdown at Westminster Abbey, in London, Britain September 10, 2019. “Abandoning the 0.7 target for aid would be a moral, strategic and political mistake,” Cameron, prime minister from 2010 to 2016 and a member of Johnson’s Conservative Party, said. The two former leaders argued that any move to cut spending on aid would undermine Britain’s position when it hosts the G7 summit in 2021. The decision comes as the country embarks on a new future outside the European Union. Blair, a Labour prime minister from 1997 to 2007 who introduced the 0.7% target, said the spending had tackled disease, boosted education and helped to increase living standards across large swathes of Africa.

Investment advisor and financial planner Blair duQuesnay says she uses open enrollment to save more for retirement, signing up for a high-deductible healthcare plan with access to a Health Savings Account, or HSA. "Most years I enroll in a health insurance policy that allows me to make contributions to a health savings account (HSA)," she writes. However, HSAs are only available if you enroll in a high-deductible healthcare plan during open enrollment. And you don't always have to have a high-deductible healthcare plan to keep your HSA open and growing. "I hope to resume my HSA savings in future years to build a savings account for future healthcare costs," she writes.

Diana almost upended the monarchy and Donald is doing his worst to upend democracy. In terms of empathy, hugging the afflicted, the radiant Diana and the radioactive Donald are opposites. And while watching her fractured fairy tale breaks your heart, watching his fractious exit makes your head hurt. The young princess feared she was going mad amid barking corgis; the 74-year-old president wallows in his barking madness.

OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s main rival in an election that could come as early as next year on Thursday said he would toughen the country’s stance on China, including potentially boycotting some goods produced there.

China has also shut down most imports of Canadian canola. “Maybe flip flops and patio furniture might be OK if we can trace those to more appropriate sources,” he said.

They defeated South Korean and American forces at the Battles of Onjong and Unsan in the northwest before moving into position in the east. Min Gyeong-sik, a South Korean soldier, recalled.
