A Latina law school professor has been tasked with examining the future of one of the country's three branches of government. President Joe Biden has signed an executive order creating a presidential commission to study whether the Supreme Court should be overhauled, and he has named Yale Law School professor Cristina M. Rodríguez as its co-chair. In her view, discussions about Supreme Court reform or restructuring could be constructive. “Her informed perspective matters, as the Supreme Court has not been very adept when it comes to immigration and immigrants’ rights issues," he said. The Supreme Court commission will hold public meetings and then issue a report with its findings and recommendations.

BOGOTA (Reuters) -The Americas are not behaving like a region experiencing an ever-graver outbreak of COVID-19, the director of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) warned on Wednesday. FILE PHOTO: People sit in the observation area after having coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccinations, in Los Angeles, California, U.S., April 12, 2021. “We’ve noted an obvious relaxation in the implementation of public health measures,” said COVID-19 incident manager Sylvain Aldighieri. Countries with significant case increases should consider lockdown measures, though if outbreaks are already visible it may be too late, PAHO health emergencies director Ciro Ugarte said. “It’s clearly necessary to consider these measures,” Ugarte said, adding that such measures should be localized and of very limited duration.

“Soaring commodity prices and strong base effects will continue to boost import prices in the coming months,” said Kathy Bostjancic, chief U.S. financial economist at Oxford Economics in New York. Import prices rose 3.1% on a year-on-year basis in February. Part of the jump in the year-on-year prices reflected the dropping of last spring’s weak readings from the calculation. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast import prices, which exclude tariffs, would increase 1.0%. These so-called core import prices rose 0.3% in February.

Are $219 Running Shorts Worth It? Some Marathoners Say Yes

MY RUNNING clothes are dreadful. In recent years, a clutch of labels selling pricey running gear with a high-design sensibility has invaded the exercise-clothing market. And so I decided to call up a few stylish runners and ask them whether such investment gear is worth it. The financial commitment proves you’re serious about running and could trigger guilt if you consider dropping the routine a week in. These refined running labels can also motivate runners by positioning the sport as cool.

Breakingviews - Capital Calls: Geely’s Volvo valuation hype seeps into Lotus

The 2006 Lotus Exige is displayed at the Lotus booth during the 2006 Los Angeles Auto Show in Los Angeles, California January 4, 2006. Another week, another Zhejiang Geely plan to monetise one of its automotive businesses. It’s far racier than the $20 billion Zhejiang Geely founder Li Shufu last month appeared to think a publicly traded Volvo would be worth. Of course, he’s also trying to start a new electric-vehicle company and launch a satellite network, all while publicly traded Geely Automobile’s earnings disappoint. So raising capital looks smart – but someone needs to take their foot off the valuation accelerator.

Slideshow ( 2 images )SYDNEY (Reuters) - Fox Corp chief executive Lachlan Murdoch will return to the United States from a months-long Australian sojourn in early September, a spokesman told Reuters on Wednesday. While he is in Sydney, Murdoch will work midnight to morning local time, a source familiar with the plans said. Australia and the United States have had vastly different pandemic experiences. While an average of around 69,500 new COVID-19 infections are being reported in the United States each day, Australia has a near zero rate. The surge in U.S. cases led Biden to urge states on March 29 to pause reopening efforts as a top health official warned of “impending doom”.

A monthslong logjam of cargo ships at Southern California’s ports appears to be easing even as imports continue to flood the major U.S. trade gateway. “We are making progress,” Port of Los Angeles Executive Director Gene Seroka said Wednesday. Container imports of leisure products and home furnishings nearly doubled the level of two years ago, said the group, which is part of S&P Global Market Intelligence. There were 23 container ships waiting offshore to dock at Los Angeles and Long Beach on Tuesday, according to the Marine Exchange of Southern California, which monitors ship traffic in the region. Container volumes are expected to continue to be strong into the summer.

On a team with both remote and in-office employees, the people working from home can feel excluded. For a hybrid model to work, remote workers must be granted the same opportunities as in person. Now, the team is split: Operations employees work in person in warehouses and in the field, while the customer experience and corporate staff work remotely. "The biggest challenge with having a hybrid model is ensuring that remote employees have the same opportunities as their in-person counterparts," Reig told Insider. "Remote employees may feel out of these loops and may start to depend on separate group chats or scheduled phone calls just with the remote team."

A year into the pandemic, workers in the battered hospitality industry know tourists are returning, and they're worried. Unite Here represents about 300,000 workers in the hotel, gaming, food services, distribution, transportation, airport, textile, and laundry industries. But others fear they won't be going back anytime soon, as union-mandated job protections are set to expire and competition for existing hospitality jobs is fierce. And if no action is taken, they are set to expire soon for many hospitality workers. The unionized workers' recall rights are expiring on May 31, and Ivan is worried the hotel won't open in time.

Time and again during the Obama administration, Mr. Biden lost arguments to reduce the American presence to a minimal counterterrorism force. “We went to Afghanistan because of a horrific attack that happened 20 years ago,” Mr. Biden planned to say in his afternoon remarks, according to prepared excerpts. President Biden will visit Section 60 of Arlington National Cemetery after delivering his speech announcing an exit timeline for troops still stationed in Afghanistan. While Mr. Biden extended the deadline to September, the pullout of the United States and its NATO allies will be a massive blow to the Afghan security forces. Senators are also likely to raise prospects for continued violence in Afghanistan now that President Biden has decided to pull out troops by September.

By then, Mr. Robson had in fact made two friends, both Irishmen working for Victorian Railways. “I certainly wouldn’t wish to go to the toilet whilst staying in a crate for five days,” Mr. Robson said. Before departure, his friends asked whether he was sure he wanted to ship himself more than 10,000 miles in a crate. If all had gone according to plan, he would have walked free around 36 hours later. Once loaded off the plane, he would hammer out one side of the crate, he said, and “walk home, basically,” at night.

American Airlines is expanding its summer schedule in a bet that the resurgence of travel demand will continue as more people get vaccinated. American plans to fly more than 90% of its summer 2019 U.S. capacity and 80% of its international summer capacity from that year, adding 150 new routes for the peak vacation season. American said its first quarter capacity was down more than 43% compared with the same period of 2019. Airlines eager to capture a rebound in travel are weighing how much capacity to deploy this summer. With international travel still depressed, American plans to use some of its Boeing 777s widebody aircraft on domestic flights to New York and Los Angeles from its Miami hub.

(CNN) Amid a global pandemic, shuttered movie theaters and after a two-month delay, Sunday's 93rd Academy Awards are already poised to feel very different than previous years. A source close to production told CNN that viewers should expect the unexpected. "It is very different this year," the insider said, who asked CNN not to include their name because they are not authorized to speak to the media, said, adding "there will be a very small [in-person] audience." Producers have said they want as much of an in-person event as possible. Like last year, there will not be a host for the event.

However, very few theaters were built in this style in the U.S., making the Cinerama Dome a rare example. "Personally, that Hollywood location, and specifically the Cinerama Dome, is rich with history, and among the most iconic locations in Los Angeles. Adding additional debt by purchasing Decurion's theaters, particularly when the pandemic is still ongoing, would likely garner the ire of shareholders.

Flores, 44, was arrested in San Pedro, California, in Los Angeles County and transported to San Luis Obispo County, Parkinson said.

"The (baseball) owners control who can join their club, the owners control who future owners can be," said Broward County (Florida) Judge Louis H. Schiff, author of the textbook "Baseball and the Law." "Based upon all the past cases I've read and studied, the antitrust exemption is important for the way baseball is made today." MLB also enjoys a hammer lock on minor league baseball, controlling wages and location of teams. "It might be a time we might say enough is enough with this antitrust exemption," she told NBC News.

REUTERS/Lucy NicholsonWASHINGTON (Reuters) -White House COVID-19 coordinator Jeff Zients said on Tuesday that the United States has more than enough vaccine from Pfizer Inc and Moderna Inc to keep up the pace of vaccinations during a pause in the use of Johnson & Johnson’s shot. U.S. federal health agencies on Tuesday recommended pausing administering J&J’s COVID-19 vaccine for at least a few days after six women under age 50 developed rare blood clots after getting the shot, dealing a setback in efforts to tackle the pandemic. “We have more than enough supply of Pfizer and Moderna vaccines to continue the current pace of about 3 million shots per day, and that puts us well on pace to meet the President’s goal of 200 million shots by his first 100 days in office,” Zients said. U.S. infectious disease official Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Tuesday that the pause on J&J’s vaccine is likely to last days or weeks, and that he could not rule out that the review would lead to a full stoppage of the vaccine.
