MEXICO CITY, June 25 (Reuters) - Mexico is facing an “unprecedented situation” in terms of the shocks affecting inflation due to the COVID-19 pandemic and future interest rate moves will depend on the evolution of inflation, said Bank of Mexico Governor Alejandro Diaz de Leon. “Despite having a negative product gap, we are seeing multiple upward revisions in prices, shortages in different inputs and that’s because of COVID, not because of the economy’s traditional cyclical behavior,” said Diaz de Leon. “We’re in an unprecedented situation in terms of the shocks that are affecting inflation.”Diaz de Leon, whose term as governor concludes at the end of 2021, said the rate hike would contribute to bringing inflation towards the bank’s 3% target, plus or minus one percentage point. With Mexican consumer prices rising 6.02% in the year through the first half of June, Banxico now expects headline inflation to converge to its target during the third quarter of 2022. Banxico’s board deliberately avoided giving guidance on future monetary policy actions because future rate moves will depend on the evolution of inflation, and Thursday’s rate decision was fundamentally aimed at avoiding contaminating inflation expectations and the price formation process, Diaz de Leon said.

Black Voters Matter has embarked on what the national advocacy and policy group has christened a Freedom Ride for Voting Rights. Its goals, BVM co-founders LaTosha Brown and Cliff Albright note, are threefold: to amplify the need for federal voting rights legislation, build Black voting power, and advocate for Washington, D.C., statehood. People gather during the launch of the "Freedom Ride for Voting Rights" in Jackson, Miss., on June 19, 2021. Founded in 1869, the historically Black college became one of the epicenters of the civil rights movement. “Amen!”Barbara Arnwine, a lawyer, updated the crowd on voting rights legislation before Congress.

Democrats and Republicans alike agree that there’s been a serious spike in violent crime over the last couple of years — the highest in more than a decade. Biden deserves kudos for standing up to his party’s loud progressive wing and insisting on taking action before more Americans needlessly die. The White House’s fact sheet on Biden’s crime-fighting plan talks of “gun violence resulting from the pandemic,” “gun violence exacerbated by the pandemic” and “gun violence associated with the pandemic.” In fact, the homicide spike “actually began in 2019, prior to the pandemic,” noted the National Commission on Covid-19 and Criminal Justice, a bipartisan panel assessing the pandemic’s effect on the justice system. More Americans believe violent crime is a “very big problem” than think the same about the coronavirus, a recent Yahoo News/YouGov poll found. In fact, violent crime was respondents’ top concern, beating the economy and race relations.

The MOVE index - a bond market volatility gauge - hit a two-month high on Monday, underscoring those mixed signals and uncertainty about the near-term. In the June 17-24 poll, over 60% of fixed-income strategists, or 25 of 41, who answered an additional question said a significant sell-off in global bond markets was likely over the next three months. (Graphic - Reuters Poll: Major sovereign bond yields outlook, )Still, beyond the near-term, yields on major sovereign bonds were expected to have risen relatively modestly in a year, according to the poll of 80 fixed-income strategists. The Fed’s heavy presence in bond markets as a buyer is expected to prevent a runaway rise in yields, which the central bank will not want to happen. When asked how high would U.S. 10-year Treasury yields rise to over the next three months, the median of 30 analysts was 1.75%, with forecasts ranging between 1.5% and 2.0%.

LONDON — The U.K. has one of the highest Covid-19 vaccination rates in the world, yet it's seeing a new surge in coronavirus cases largely attributed to the delta variant that first originated in India. Experts say that close attention is being paid to the latest data out of the U.K. as it could be a bellwether for others. And there is a fear that where the U.K. now treads, others — like the U.S. — could follow. "All eyes (are) on UK Covid trends," Kallum Pickering, senior economist and director at Berenberg Bank, said in a note Tuesday. Secondly, he noted that new hospital admissions had increased less than recorded infections — and by much less than during the winter wave.

Schwarber hit a homer to lead off the game and added a three-run shot in his second at-bat in just the 13th time that Schwarber hit leadoff for Washington. He has delivered 12 home runs in those games and is already tied for third in franchise history with five leadoff homers. He is one of just four players in MLB history with at least eight homers and 15 RBIs in a five-game span. The Marlins couldn't get a runner past first base until the fifth inning, and they have now scored just five runs over their past four games. Detroit starter Jose Urena (2-8) gave up six runs, four earned, on eight hits in 3 2/3 innings.

Philippine 'river warriors' fight tide of trash for cleaner future

Members of the River Warriors gather trash to a 'trash boat' from the heavily polluted San Juan River, a tributary of Pasig River, in Mandaluyong City, Philippines, June 21, 2021. These "river warriors" are a decade-old group of about 100 people who work to clear the glut of garbage floating or washed up along Manila's notorious Pasig River. The 27 km (16.8 mile) river cutting through the Philippine capital was once a vital trade route. The Pasig River alone provides up to 6.43% of ocean plastic originating from rivers, the report said. "I've seen it done in other cities, in other countries, so I don't think it's impossible to revive and clean up Pasig River," she said.

UK regulator opens formal probe into Amazon, Google over fake reviews
  + stars: | 2021-06-25 | by ( ) sentiment -1.00   time to read: +1 min
REUTERS/Shannon Stapleton/File PhotoJune 25 (Reuters) - Britain's competition regulator on Friday opened a formal investigation into Amazon (AMZN.O) and Alphabet Inc's Google (GOOGL.O) over concerns the tech giants have not done enough to combat fake reviews on their sites. The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) said it will now gather further information to determine whether the firms may have broken consumer law by taking insufficient action to protect shoppers from fake reviews. The move comes after an initial CMA investigation, which opened in May 2020, and assessed several platforms’ internal systems and processes for identifying and dealing with fake reviews. “Our worry is that millions of online shoppers could be misled by reading fake reviews and then spending their money based on those recommendations," said CMA Chief Executive Andrea Coscelli. "Equally, it’s simply not fair if some businesses can fake 5-star reviews to give their products or services the most prominence, while law-abiding businesses lose out."

If Trump were indicted and fled, he would go where there's no extradition treaty, legal experts say. The US would be in "uncharted territories" if it sought extradition of Trump, experts say. But the US and Russia have no extradition treaty or formal process through which a wanted person is arrested. Russian officials could agree to entertain Trump's application, which would trigger an international standoff between two countries with an already fraught relationship. If US authorities arrested Trump and won a criminal conviction against him, the former president's political career wouldn't necessarily stop there.

Yet Mr. Wisnia had resolved to go back to Auschwitz one last time. Mr. Wisnia spent New Year’s Day in 2020 in a hospital bed, just weeks before his flight was scheduled to leave Newark. Mr. Wisnia knew this would almost certainly be his final opportunity to revisit the Nazi death camp, and it felt especially important to go. In Auschwitz, Mr. Wisnia became a privileged prisoner when his Nazi captors discovered his talent and forced him to sing for them. In spite of the horrors of the death camp, Mr. Wisnia found clandestine moments of love with another privileged prisoner, an older woman known as Zippi.

U.S. inflation likely to remain elevated for up to four years - BofA
  + stars: | 2021-06-25 | by ( Thyagaraju Adinarayan | ) sentiment -0.99   time to read: +2 min
REUTERS/Brendan McDermidLONDON, June 25 (Reuters) - BofA expects U.S. inflation to remain elevated for two to four years, against a rising perception of it being transitory, and said that only a financial market crash would prevent central banks from tightening policy in the next six months. Hartnett thinks inflation will remain in the 2%-4% range over the next 2-4 years. U.S. inflation has averaged 3% in the past 100 years, 2% in the 2010s, and 1% in 2020, but it has been annualising at 8% so far in 2021, Bofa said in the note. BofA clients were still heavily invested in equities, with cash allocations well below long-term averages at 11.2%. In the week to Wednesday, investors pumped $7 billion into equities and $9.9 billion into bond funds, while pulling $53.5 billion from cash funds, BofA calculated, using EPFR data.

"It makes no sense," said Ross, 34, adding that no witnesses have stepped forward in the “broad daylight” murder. Such tributes have become a common sight in the poorer neighborhoods of Rochester, a city of 206,000 people in the northwestern part of the state. The per-capita murder rate climbed 30 percent in 2020 among 34 major cities surveyed by Richard Rosenfeld, a criminologist at the University of Missouri in St. Louis. Evans said the murder surge reflects rising problems with drug trafficking, criminal gangs and illegal firearms during the pandemic. The city’s police union, the Rochester Police Locust Club, said the department has only 12 investigators to pursue murder cases.

REUTERS/Ammar AwadHEBRON, West Bank, June 25 (Reuters) - Palestinian mourners called on Friday for a change of government as they marched through Hebron for the funeral of one of President Mahmoud Abbas's most prominent critics, who died after he was arrested by security forces. Thousands of people accompanied Nizar Banat's coffin through the streets of the occupied West Bank city, many of them chanting "the people want the fall of the regime" and "leave, leave Abbas". Banat, 43, was a social activist who had accused Abbas's PA of corruption, including over a short-lived COVID-19 vaccine exchange with Israel this month and Abbas's postponement of a long-delayed election in May. The United States, United Nations and European Union called on the PA to conduct a "transparent" inquiry into Banat's death. Abbas and the PA, which exercises limited self-rule in the West Bank, reject accusations they are corrupt and that they arrest people for their political views.

Kansai Electric faces pressure from shareholders to decarbonise

TOKYO, June 24 (Reuters) - Some Kansai Electric Power shareholders, including Nordea Asset Management and KLP, say they will back a resolution opposed by the board requiring the Japanese electricity supplier to decarbonise to meet international targets on climate change. The resolution put forward by the City of Kyoto, which owns a stake in Kansai and gave its name to the first international climate change agreement, requires Kansai Electric to stop building new coal plants and to use carbon capture and storage for its existing coal stations, a city official told Reuters earlier. Kansai Electric did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Kansai Electric which serves Osaka and its industrial environs - an area with roughly the same economic output as Mexico - this week restarted an old reactor that had to get special approval to remain in operation. AkademikerPension of Denmark will also back the resolution, its CEO, Jens Munch Holst, said.
