WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S President Joe Biden has decorated his new office with busts of civil rights and labor leaders, nods to other presidents who faced great crises, and side-by-side portraits of American founders who famously disagreed. Slideshow ( 7 images )The military flags displayed during the Donald Trump presidency have been replaced by just an American flag and one with the Presidential Seal, and a collection of family photos. A portrait of former President Andrew Jackson, who espoused a populist political style that has sometimes been compared with that of Trump, is gone. The redesign includes side-by-side pictures of Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton and President Thomas Jefferson - men known to vehemently disagree with one another. The new Oval Office highlights the country’s diversity with busts of civil rights icons including Rosa Parks and Cesar Chavez, and a sculpture made by a member of the Chiricahua Apache tribe.

(Reuters) - Pipeline operator Kinder Morgan Inc on Wednesday raised concerns over the pace of ramp-up in spending in top U.S. shale basins following a rebound in oil prices after beating Wall Street estimates for quarterly results. FILE PHOTO: The headquarters of U.S. energy exporter and pipeline operator Kinder Morgan Inc. is seen in Houston, Texas, U.S. September 27, 2020. U.S. oil production peaked at nearly 13 million barrels per day (bpd) in late-2019, but is now around 11 million bpd after the coronavirus-induced lockdowns crushed fuel demand and oil prices. Kinder Morgan, which transports nearly 40% of the natural gas consumed in the United States, said natgas shipment volumes rose more than 6% sequentially, while total refined product volumes fell marginally. Excluding items, Kinder Morgan earned 27 cents per share, versus estimates of 24 cents, according to Refinitiv IBES data.

Slideshow ( 4 images )More than a dozen states have activated National Guard troops to help secure their capitol buildings following an FBI warning of armed protests, with right-wing extremists emboldened by the deadly siege at the U.S. Capitol in Washington on Jan. 6. Downtown Washington, D.C., was virtually empty, with streets near the Capitol closed and battalions of camouflaged National Guard soldiers taking up positions across the city center. Connecticut has activated its National Guard in preparation for as many as 2,000 mostly Trump supporters at its capitol complex in Hartford on Sunday, a state police spokesman said. “We are preparing possibly for anything to happen,” said Trooper Pedro Muniz, adding that there had not been any specific threats. The FBI and other federal agencies have warned of the potential for future violence, as white supremacists and other extremists look to exploit frustration among Trump supporters who have bought into falsehoods about electoral fraud.

“He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding.” “These facts require immediate actions by President Trump,” he continued. A few Republicans defended him, but most others simply argued that a rush to impeach Mr. Trump without a hearing or an investigation raised constitutional questions. With Democrats controlling the House, Mr. Trump is expected to become the first American president to be impeached twice. Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington sent a letter to Mr. Trump on Sunday asking for an emergency declaration to obtain additional funding for inauguration security. On Tuesday, a federal inspector general questioned an order to deliver the estimates before Mr. Trump leaves office, after whistle-blowers warned that the rush would imperil their accuracy.

California regulator flags concerns over PG&E's wildfire safety measures

The regulator, in a letter to PG&E dated Tuesday, said it will require remediation on specific issues identified in the San Francisco-based utility's wildfire mitigation plan progress reports. PG&E emerged from bankruptcy in July, marking an end to a long-drawn restructuring process which began after its equipment sparked some of the deadliest wildfires in California. CPUC said its concerns arose from what appeared to be a pattern of vegetation and asset management deficiencies. The regulator said its staff had “identified a volume and rate of defects in PG&E’s vegetation management that is notably higher than those observed for the other utilities.”CPUC said a fact-finding initiative is underway to determine if the regulator needed to place PG&E into the “enhanced oversight and enforcement process.”

ZURICH (Reuters) - Credit Suisse expects to take a roughly $450 million impairment on alternative investment firm York Capital Management’s retreat from its core hedge funds business, the Swiss bank said. FILE PHOTO: The logo of Swiss bank Credit Suisse is seen at its headquarters at the Paradeplatz square in Zurich, Switzerland October 1, 2019. The impairment would not change its existing guidance for dividends and capital distributions in 2020 and 2021, Switzerland’s second-biggest bank said. “Even if the extent of the write-off doesn’t shake Credit Suisse to its core, it does show that big banks need to be prepared for major disruption.”Shares in Credit Suisse were up 2.2% by 1025 GMT despite the potential impairment, amid a wider market ally. York’s new strategy will focus on longer-term assets such as private equity, private debt and collateralised loan obligations, Credit Suisse said.

REUTERS/Ralph OrlowskiFRANKFURT (Reuters) - The European Central Bank should keep a close watch on the growing role played by shadow banks in passing on the ECB’s policy to money markets, as many of those firms do not have access to central bank cash, ECB board member Isabel Schnabel said on Monday. “Unlike banks, these market participants often do not have access to central bank operations,” Schnabel said. “Were the transmission across money market rates to weaken, or rates to decouple from policy intentions, this could have implications for monetary policy implementation in the future,” she said.

The Chinese company’s shareholders can only sit by and watch, however, as an epic saga unfolds featuring a buyout attempt, boardroom coup and rarely triggered poison pill. A worker performs a quality check in the packaging facility of Chinese vaccine maker Sinovac Biotech, developing an experimental coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccine, during a government-organized media tour in Beijing, China, September 24, 2020. Both acquisition efforts have been dropped, but the question of which Sinovac board is the legitimate one is making its way through foreign and U.S. courts. Those findings suggest that the company might have been justified to go to the extreme lengths of using the poison pill. That will be of little comfort to outsiders stuck with Sinovac shares that are indefinitely untradeable.
