Of this year’s 28 known transgender victims, 20 were trans women of color (16 of them Black trans women), and 14 were killed in the South. The disproportionate violence trans Americans face in the South, and more specifically the Southeast, is due to a combination of issues, according to advocates. Hill said trans people's inability to safely access public spaces without fear of discrimination — and the issues being debated in state legislatures aimed at rolling back the rights of trans people — have created a climate that has “dehumanized” the trans community. That combined with a lack of legal protections such as nondiscrimination ordinances leaves trans people vulnerable and easy targets of violence. Trans United Leading Intersectional Progress, or TULIP, is a nonprofit collective creating housing solutions for trans and gender-nonconforming people in Louisiana.

(Updates to market close)June 10 (Reuters) - Wall Street stocks ended firmer on Thursday, with the S&P 500 hitting a record closing high, as economic data appeared to support the Federal Reserve’s assertion that the current wave of heightened inflation will be temporary.

Surging prices for used cars and trucks accounted about one-third of the rise in consumer inflation reported by the Labor Department on Thursday. The recovering labor market and accelerating inflation will have no impact on monetary policy. "As the cycle matures, these inflation pressures will subside owing to the structural forces that have kept inflation low for long." Excluding the volatile food and energy components, the CPI increased 0.7% after soaring 0.9% in April. Though layoffs are subsiding, initial claims remain well above the 200,000 to 250,000 range that is viewed as consistent with healthy labor market conditions.

Chef Matt Bolus Source: Kelli LaMatiaWhile there have been debates over the prolonged restaurant worker shortages, some point to the enhanced unemployment benefits. Leaving the industryWhile the pandemic heightened staffing issues, restaurant worker shortages were a problem before Covid, Bolus said. "We've been in what the press has called a 'hospitality staffing crisis' for over a decade," said Ben Ellsworth, founder and CEO at GigPro, an on-demand hiring app based in Charleston, South Carolina. Restaurant workers, especially those working in a small kitchen, have been vulnerable during the pandemic. Downsides of on-demand hiring appsWorker advocates say there may be some drawbacks to on-demand hiring apps, however.

Zaccarelli added that there may be some lingering concerns about overall price inflation as the Fed keeps rates lower for longer amid unprecedented fiscal stimulus. The dollar index fell 0.365%, with the euro up 0.33% to $1.2164, down from a multiweek high hit earlier on Friday. Investors have been carefully parsing the economic data to gauge whether inflation could prove sticky enough to force the Fed's hand on tapering. "Will prolonged, low-wage inflation allow for a longer period of low, overall price inflation to reign? Last month, much-lower-than-expected nonfarm payrolls numbers knocked back those expectations, weakening Treasury yields and the dollar, and the pattern repeated on Friday.

It found that 87% of American workers who have been working remotely during the pandemic would prefer to continue working remotely at least one day a week, post-pandemic. But here's the kicker: 42% of current remote workers say if their employer doesn't continue to offer remote work options long-term, they'll look for a job at a company that does. In pulse surveys, formal studies and other research, chief human resources officers say that the number one thing employees are looking for now is flexibility. It found that 83% of the people it surveyed said a hybrid work model—where they're able to work remotely between 25% and 75% of the time—is optimal.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. manufacturing activity picked up in May as pent-up demand amid a reopening economy boosted orders, but unfinished work piled up because of shortages of raw materials and labor. According to the ISM, worker absenteeism and short-term shutdowns because of shortages of parts and workers continued to limit manufacturing’s growth potential. The ISM’s index of national factory activity increased to a reading of 61.2 last month from 60.7 in April. Sixteen manufacturing industries, including furniture, machinery, transportation equipment, computer and electronic products, and electrical equipment, appliances and components reported growth last month. Suppliers took much longer to deliver to manufacturers last month, with the supplier deliveries index jumping to 78.8.

Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in men in the United States, after lung cancer, according to the American Cancer Society. The new technique uses a tracer molecule that seeks out a protein found on most prostate cancer cells called prostate-specific membrane antigen, or PSMA. The new approval will be the first such tracer for advanced prostate cancer commercially available nationwide. While Wei and other prostate cancer experts agreed that the imaging would give them more information about metastatic cancer, it remains unclear what they should do with the information. The new imaging is unable to determine which kinds of prostate cancer cells are likely to be more dangerous, Raghavan said.

Posts sharing information that gas stations around the United States are pricing gallons of gas as high as $9.99 are largely misleading and missing context. This number is often listed as a default when the gas station is unable to provide gas.

Banks have faced many lawsuits over the years claiming they sought to illegally maximize overdraft fees.

But even before the shutdown, gas prices were climbing as people re-emerge from Covid-19 lockdowns to travel again — the national average broke $3 per gallon for the first time in seven years on Wednesday. When gas prices spiked in 2008, they became a central issue in that year’s presidential campaign. “Gas prices are through the roof and people are now waiting in line.
