REUTERS/Edgard Garrido(Reuters) - The U.S. central bank is already doing “quite a lot” to boost the economy and has little scope to do much more, Chicago Federal Reserve Bank President Charles Evans said on Tuesday, calling again for more fiscal help from the U.S. Congress. “This is a real economic downturn, it’s a public health safety crisis, and so that screams out for remedies other than monetary policy,” Evans said in an interview aired Tuesday on CNN International. “There are very useful arguments that much of the country could stand to have additional relief during the current increased virus spread and the risks that the economy faces.”

BOSTON (Reuters) - Hedge fund industry veteran Chris James, who co-founded technology oriented Andor Capital nearly two decades ago, is launching a new firm that will focus on impact investing at a time these types of portfolios are delivering strong returns. The firm will launch with $250 million in capital and expects to raise more from institutional and retail investors later, a person familiar with its plans said. Last year these types of funds performed better than conventional funds, partly because they were underweight energy companies, Morningstar data show. “Companies that invest in their stakeholders are better, stronger companies as a result,” James, who also founded Partner Fund Management, said in a statement. Charles Penner, who most recently led activist hedge fund Jana Partners’ effort to push companies to become better corporate citizens, and Jennifer Grancio, a founder of BlackRock’s iShares business, are founding team members.

GENEVA (Reuters) - A final round of negotiations at the World Trade Organization on cutting fisheries subsidies opened on Tuesday with some delegates seeing little hope for a deal by a 2020 deadline despite intensifying negotiations. FILE PHOTO: A delegate arrives before a meeting at the World Trade Organization (WTO) in Geneva, Switzerland, October 28, 2020. Switzerland’s ambassador Didier Chambovey, who is facilitating talks, told members last week that positions on potential exemptions for developing countries were “entrenched”. However, the draft text issued in November seen by Reuters still showed 51 pairs of square brackets -- indicating areas of non-agreement. An ambitious deal could lead to a 12.5 percent increase in global fish biomass by 2050, the Pew Charitable Trust said, based on a model it has shared with WTO negotiators.

He is accused of war crimes listed as “recruitment and use of a child soldier, forced transportation, looting, cruel treatment of civilians, attempted murder, murder (directly or by order), desecration of a corpse and rape”. It is Switzerland’s first war crimes trial to be heard outside a military court. “This is historic for Switzerland and Liberia,” said Alain Werner, a Swiss lawyer at Geneva-based NGO Civitas Maxima which filed the complaint on behalf of victims. The NGO was researching war crimes with a Liberian partner when they discovered a rebel commander was living near Lake Geneva. Liberia’s former President Charles Taylor was sentenced in 2012 for war crimes in Sierra Leone, but was never convicted for Liberian acts.

For Yazdan Yazdanpanah, a member of the Scientific Council, an independent advisory body consulted by the government, the experience showed the scientific community needed to work harder to make itself heard. The first lockdown had ended in May, cases were down sharply, and the country’s nearly 200,000 bars, restaurants and cafes were buzzing. The Scientific Council had warned officials to expect a resurgence of infections. On the agenda: the possible closure of all restaurants, bars and cafes across France, one person present told Reuters. In the high-stakes contest with France’s restaurant and café industry, scientists had been at a disadvantage, said Yazdanpanah, the Scientific Council member.

California labor activists are asking President-elect Joe Biden to select Julie Su as his Secretary of Labor. Su, once dubbed the "bane of deadbeat employers," has served as California's Labor Secretary since 2019. "Thinking about Julie Su as Secretary of Labor is almost a physical sense of relief," one source in the labor movement told Business Insider. "Workers, especially workers of color, are hurting across the country," Marissa Nuncio, director of the Garment Worker Center in Los Angeles, told Business Insider. "I think she's very, very viable," Los Angeles County Federation of Labor President Ron Herrera, a supporter, told Bloomberg.

The Iranian people have spoken out repeatedly and at great personal cost, getting gunned down or imprisoned. The Iranian people have no hatred for Jews and no interest in imposing their dictates on their Sunni neighbors. President Barack Obama ignominiously turned his back on the Iranian people’s 2009 Green Revolution. The question now is whether President Biden will make the same mistake and side with the ayatollahs against their own people. Charles KnappRoxbury, Conn.To the Editor:Barbara Slavin describes the assassination of the military officer in charge of Iran’s nuclear bomb program as an illegal criminal act under international law.

(Reuters) - Tesla Inc shares jumped 4% in extended trade on Monday after S&P Dow Jones Indices said it would add one of Wall Street’s most valuable companies to the S&P 500 index all at once on Dec. 21. REUTERS/Charles Platiau/File PhotoAdding Elon Musk’s Tesla to Wall Street’s most followed benchmark will force index funds to buy about $73 billion worth of its shares, S&P Dow Jones Indices said. At that time, S&P Dow Jones Indices said it would consult investors about whether to potentially add Tesla in two tranches a week apart to make the addition easier to handle for index funds. About a fifth of Tesla’s shares are closely held by Musk, the chief executive, and other insiders. S&P Dow Jones said it would announce on Dec. 11 which company Tesla would replace in the S&P 500.

The popular Netflix series "The Crown" has taken viewers on a sweeping tour of modern history through the eyes of the British royal family, dramatizing pivotal events from the post-war era to Margaret Thatcher's administration. But the show's revisions to the historical record — embellishments, exaggerations and even some outright inventions — have long stoked debate among scholars and biographers, and now Britain's culture minister is weighing in. Oliver Dowden, the United Kingdom's secretary of state for culture, told the Mail on Sunday newspaper that he believes Netflix needs to make it abundantly clear to viewers that "The Crown" is a work of fiction, not a by-the-book history lesson. He told the British broadcaster ITV: "I worry people do think that this is gospel, and that's unfair." Sally Bedell Smith, the author of a biography of the queen, told NBC News that Morgan's credo might as well be summed up as "false drama and conflict overriding the truth."

This year, at least four LGBTQ-inclusive Christmas movies landed on cable channels and streaming services. While “The Family Stone” doesn’t reinvent the holiday movie, it does shake up conventions about expectations when it comes to romance. She and John Goodman play a couple of 40 years who want to have one last “perfect” family Christmas before announcing their impending divorce. Though a bit heavy-handed, “Holiday Heart” has a surprisingly good pedigree: Directed by Robert Townshend and produced by Robert DeNiro, it earned Woodard a Golden Globe. 'Rent' (2005)Every holiday movie list needs a musical, and “White Christmas” wasn’t going to cut it.

John Fetterman, Pennsylvania's lieutenant governor, spoke to Business Insider about President Donald Trump, voter fraud, criminal justice reform, and his state's East vs. West rivalry. In 2024, however, he fully expects Donald Trump to be a candidate for US president. And I think that's one of the main missing links and criminal justice conversation in America today.

Gerald Herbert | APAn unforgiving hurricane season shattered records this year, producing the most named storms ever seen in the Atlantic and battering parts of Central America and the U.S. Gulf Coast. The Atlantic season officially runs from June 1 to Nov. 30. But one thing is clear: No previous hurricane season in recorded history has had so many storms. The strongest hurricane was Hurricane Iota, which struck Central America and Colombia as the latest known Atlantic hurricane to become a Category 5. "Many millions of people along both the Gulf Coast and the Atlantic Coast were impacted by these storms," Bell said.
