These acquisitions are gradually giving Beijing a potential stranglehold on global shipping — with profound military as well as commercial implications. Yet China, having accumulated this unprecedented stake in global shipping and commerce, and its power and profits present ominous possibilities for the future. Five years ago, China, through Cosco, purchased a controlling stake in the Port of Piraeus on Greece’s largest harbor — Europe’s seventh largest. In September, Cosco also took a major stake in the container operator at the port in Hamburg, Germany’s largest. The consequences of doing nothing as China continues to penetrate the world’s ports and shipping are potentially catastrophic.

“Surprisingly, I felt really sad and angry and frustrated,” said Jehava Brown, 37, a mother of three boys living in Pennsylvania. In addition, studies have shown that Black children are more likely to be physically restrained during emergency room visits and more likely to die after surgery than white children. The Rittenhouse verdict "made me feel hurt, knowing the world hasn’t changed and will not change,” said Tammy, 26, who has a 2-year-old and an 8-year-old step-daughter. “When I started doing my work, it was to create the conditions that allow Black children to have the freedom to simply be,” he said. She said the Rittenhouse verdict made her feel sad for her children, who are a visible minority as Muslims living in Canada.

About 110,000 empties are stacked at port terminals on a typical day, officials say, and thousands more are piled in private yards and even scattered along streets. Each terminal will only accept certain boxes for certain ocean carriers on certain days. Terminals know one way to help shipping customers retrieve boxes is to accept more empty containers and free up truck chassis. The terminal, which accepts boxes for five ocean carriers, leased 20 acres of nearby land, increasing its storage capacity for empty containers to 19,000 boxes from 6,500. Some exporters say the ocean carriers’ drive to get boxes quickly back to Asia for imports has hurt their business.

Shipping lines, port workers, truckers, warehouse operators, railways and retailers blame each other for the imbalances and delays. “The term I’ve used is commercial gridlock,” said Mr. Mattingly, 60, who owns his own big rig. His trucking business has increased steadily since the start of the pandemic, Mr. Mattingly said, and rising rates have boosted his income. In August Mr. Mattingly had a heart attack, his third. “What has me worried the most with supply chain shortages is parts,” Mr. Mattingly said.

An oil well pump jack operated by Chevron Corp. in San Ardo, California, U.S., on Tuesday, April 27, 2021. Oil prices slid more than 1% on Friday on concerns that a global supply surplus could swell in the first quarter following a coordinated release of crude reserves among major consumers, led by the United States. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude was down $1.35, or 1.7%, at $77.04 a barrel. The Economic Commission Board (ECB) expects a 400,000 barrels-per-day (bpd) surplus in December, expanding to 2.3 million bpd in January and 3.7 million bpd in February if consumer nations go ahead with the release, the OPEC source said. Forecasts of rising surplus oil clouds the outlook of the meeting between OPEC and allies, a group known as OPEC+, on Dec. 2 to decide on immediate production.

"We can very, very quickly go from a very tight market to an oversupplied market," Saxo Bank's Ole Hansen said. But after South African scientists said they had detected small numbers of a new variant of COVID-19 that could prove more transmissible, investors dumped crude oil futures and equities on Friday in favor of perceived safe-haven assets. The UK banned flights from six African countries in response, underlining worries about the impact of the new variant on economic growth. Brent crude futures were last down 5.7% on the day, set for their biggest one-day fall since mid-July, while West Texas Intermediate crude was 6.8% lower at $73.00 a barrel.

Here’s how to get a jump-start on the upcoming tax season

But people should also invest a little time to get a jump-start on the upcoming tax season. There are still opportunities to lower tax bills, such as 401(k) contributions, tax-loss harvesting, charitable giving or Roth individual retirement account conversions. However, filers should also take steps to prevent headaches amid the recent flurry of tax law changes, according to advisors from CNBC's 2021 FA 100 list. Some taxpayers may opt for an Identity Protection PIN to prevent someone from filing a fraudulent return by Social Security number or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number. "It's another way of protecting yourself from identity theft," said John Dahlin, director of tax at IFA Taxes, a division of Index Fund Advisors in Irvine, California, ranked No.

In a July report, the Independent Review Commission on Sexual Assault in the Military found that many of those who reported sexual violence regretted doing so. Studies show that the perception of betrayal by the military bureaucracy in the aftermath of sexual assault is associated with both severe depression and self-inflicted violence. According to the investigation into her death, Corporal Vassas tried reporting her sexual assaults several times. Her heightened depression and anxiety can be traced back to late 2018 and was likely “due to the stress induced by the sexual assault” in the barracks, according to a behavioral health assessment. There, Corporal Vassas may have been sexually assaulted yet again, according to Marines in her unit.

Peloton has sued Lululemon after the leggings maker threatened legal action against the connected fitness equipment company earlier this year. The suit, filed in Manhattan federal court on Wednesday, comes just a few weeks after Peloton rolled out a massive marketing blitz behind its own apparel line. Earlier this month, Lululemon's lawyers sent a note to Peloton saying the company would sue unless Peloton stopped selling its new clothes. The yoga pants maker argued that Peloton's strappy bra, high neck bra, cadent peak bra, cadent laser dot bra and cadent laser dot leggings infringed on Lululemon's patent designs. A Lululemon spokesperson said the retailer has requested that Peloton cease and desist selling a number of products.

Like her previous albums, "30" is named after a milestone age in Adele's life.

The Biden administration on Friday proposed reforms to the country's oil and gas leasing program that would raise costs for energy companies to drill on public lands and water, but stopped short of recommending an end to leasing on public lands. Drilling on public lands generates billions of dollars in revenue but contributes to roughly a quarter of the country's planet-warming greenhouse gas emissions. The minimum royalty rate is currently 12.5% for oil and gas production on federal lands. Environmentalists argue the report offers little on the climate impacts of drilling and contradicts Biden's vows to end drilling on public lands. The administration recently opened more than 80 million acres in the Gulf of Mexico to auction for oil and gas drilling, a record offshore sale that will lock in years of greenhouse gas emissions.

Director Paul Thomas Anderson's "Licorice Pizza" is being criticized by some on social media for including scenes where a white businessman speaks in a fake Asian accent with his on-screen wife, who is Japanese. In the film, a white male restaurateur, played by John Michael Higgins, speaks to his Japanese wife with a fake Asian accent. He appears again in the film with another Japanese woman, his new wife, and he repeats the attempted gag. "But the heartbreaking thing is me imagining an alternate version of this movie," he wrote, noting that the scenes mocking the Asian accent "added virtually nothing to it." My mother-in-law’s Japanese and my father-in-law is white, so seeing people speak English to her with a Japanese accent is something that happens all the time.

Allyn Walker will remain on leave until they step down as a professor of criminal justice and sociology at Old Dominion University in May. "We have concluded that this outcome is the best way to move forward," university president Brian Hemphill said in the statement. In Wednesday's statement, Walker said that their research aimed to prevent child sexual abuse and attributed the backlash to their trans identity and mischaracterizations promoted online and by some media outlets. In Wednesday's statement, Walker said multiple threats had been made against them and thanked the school's public safety department for monitoring those threats.

A gray wolf whose “epic” travels captured headlines and imaginations earlier this year was killed in California after being struck by a vehicle this month, wildlife officials said Wednesday. "I’m devastated to learn of the death of this remarkable wolf,” Weiss said in a statement.

"He won’t be forgotten, and we’ll honor his memory by continuing to fight for the safety of wolves everywhere.”Gray wolves are native to California but were killed off a century ago. Roughly 20 are now believed to live in the state in two northern counties, Weiss said.
