REUTERS/Brendan McDermid/File PhotoBack-to-school sales at U.S. department stores are expected to jump about 25% from last year, as parents splurge on apparel, supplies and electronics for the new academic year when many kids return to classrooms, an industry report showed on Thursday. Sales at department stores this back-to-school season, which runs mid-July through early-September, are forecast to surge 25.3% from a year earlier, and 9.5% over 2019, according to Mastercard Inc SpendingPulse data. Total retail sales, excluding auto and gas, are projected to rise 5.5%. The pandemic pushed department stores, such as Macy's (M.N) and Kohl's (KSS.N), to sell largely online and streamline their businesses at a time they were already facing intense competition and a shift in consumer preference. On Wednesday, The National Retail Federation raised its growth forecast for 2021 U.S. retail sales as the economy reopens faster than predicted.

The CMA CGM Marco Polo, an Explorer class container ship crosses under the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge, to enter New York Harbor as seen from Brooklyn, New York, U.S., May 20, 2021. Americans' demand for imports abated in April, easing the U.S. trade deficit from the record level it had hit the month before, according to Census Bureau data released Tuesday. The goods and services shortfall declined to $68.9 billion for the month, down from the upwardly revised $75.02 billion in March, the highest level for a data series that stretches back to January 1992. While exports increased 1.1% to $205 billion, imports declined 1.4% to $273.9 billion, which equated to an 8.2% decline in the trade deficit. Even with the monthly decrease that still left the trade imbalance 30% higher than the year-ago level, a time when the U.S. economy largely remained in shutdown mode due to harsh restrictions imposed on businesses in an effort to control the Covid-19 pandemic.

U.S. productivity growth was unrevised at a 5.4% rate in the first three months of the year while labor costs rose at an even faster rate. The first-quarter gain in productivity was unchanged from the initial estimate a month ago, the Labor Department reported Thursday. The 5.4% gain at a seasonally adjusted annual rate followed a steep plunge at a 3.8% rate in the fourth quarter. Labor costs rose at a 1.7% rate in the first quarter, up from the initial estimate of a 1.6% increase. Economists are hoping that some of the efficiencies businesses have implemented to cope with the pandemic may lead to stronger productivity gains in the coming years.

Judge dismisses charges against Apple security chief in gun-permit probe

REUTERS/Brendan McDermidA court in California on Tuesday dismissed bribery charges against Apple Inc's (AAPL.O) security chief, writing that a key element of the case was "pure speculation" by prosecutors and unsupported by evidence. The Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office in November had said a grand jury indicted Apple Chief Security Officer Thomas Moyer and two officers in the Sheriff’s Office. It is illegal to carry a concealed weapon without a permit in California, and county sheriffs have wide discretion over whether to grant them. By then, Geffon wrote, the evidence suggests Moyer believed the permits were already approved and would be issued soon. “This argument is pure speculation, and is not supported by the evidence presented to the grand jury," Geffon wrote.

"However, we are watching closely how the White House responds with specific actions and policies." That includes the immediate filling of key roles, including a Department of State special envoy focused on monitoring antisemitism, as well as a White House liaison to the Jewish community, a position that was vacant under the Trump administration. The horrific rise in anti-Semitic attacks against the Jewish community is reprehensible. "A Biden-Harris administration will stand strong against antisemitism, period," he said in August at the Jewish Floridians Summit hosted by Florida Democrats. Someone like Emhoff "can be a face of the White House," he said, "but that's different than the day-to-day relationship building that's needed."

Many Confederate monuments were erected well after the war - Florence's statue was completed in 1903 - after Reconstruction when white Southern segregationists were working to reverse Black political and economic gains. The monuments have long been symbolic for white supremacists like the KKK, which was founded by Confederate veterans. In 2020, over 160 Confederate monuments were taken down, compared to 58 between 2015 and 2019, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. But because the statue sits on county property, the city asked the county for permission to remove it.
