Francisco Teran has been a security guard at a luxury watch store in Manhattan’s Upper East Side for almost two years. These days it feels like a totally new job. A year ago, a typical day for Mr. Teran consisted of taking his post inside the store on Madison Avenue and watching shoppers file in and out all day, keeping an eye out for potential theft or other suspicious activity. Now, because of Covid-19, shoppers enter mainly by appointment, making Mr. Teran a combination bouncer, receptionist, health-care worker and sentinel.

Column: Risk pricing needs rethink into 2021 - Mike Dolan

The U.S. Treasury bond market’s equivalent index, the MOVE, is by contrast now almost 50% below its mean over the same 15-year period. “AWFULLY MISPRICED”Citi analysts describe the behaviour of equity and bond market volatility as an “interesting medium-term dynamic” that should rectify gradually as the recovery kicks in next year. Forecasting a boom in nominal U.S. gross domestic product growth next year of 7.5% as vaccines kick in, they claim that 10-year Treasury yield of 1% for next 12 months looks “awfully mispriced”. While the overall equity bull market can continue, it can also contain some violent switches that can make for quite volatile gains. But the historically skewed pricing of risk may have to shift once a truer, post-pandemic rebound finally gets underway.

Fox News has reached a settlement with slain Democratic National Committee employee Seth Rich's parents, who alleged in a lawsuit that the cable news company exploited their son's death in stories and commentary. Rich was shot and killed in 2016 in Washington, D.C., in what authorities described as a botched robbery attempt. His parents, Joel and Mary Rich, had objected to a Fox article and commentary falsely suggesting their son had leaked DNC emails to WikiLeaks during the presidential campaign. Internet theories that Rich had been assassinated for leaking emails were contradicted by U.S. intelligence reports. Rich's parents, in a statement, said the settlement closed another chapter in their efforts to mourn their son, who was 27 when he was killed.

That polarization, coupled with the social isolation required to fight this pandemic, has left us feeling more alone than ever. When I was in my late teens, I sat in the back of a taxi zipping through the busyness and bustle of Manhattan. I looked out the window and saw a woman on her phone in a flood of tears. This, I realize, is the danger of siloed living — where moments sad, scary or sacrosanct are all lived out alone. In being invited to share our pain, together we take the first steps toward healing.

"This kind of had the most good things for the best price," Lee says. Lee knew she wanted a one-bedroom apartment on the second floor of a building, a preference she admits is "weirdly specific."

To put their rent in perspective, the median rent for a one-bedroom rental apartment in Manhattan is $2,800, according to Oct. 2020 data from StreetEasy. The median asking rent for a one-bedroom apartment in the Gramercy Park neighborhood is $3,290 a month, according to StreetEasy.

Andrew Weissmann, a former prosecutor on the special counsel Robert Mueller's team, said President Donald Trump should be investigated and, if warranted, prosecuted for federal crimes after leaving the White House. He commuted Mr. Stone's sentence, who was duly convicted by a jury but never spent a day in jail for crimes that a federal judge found were committed for the president," Weissmann wrote. The New York attorney general's office is also conducting a broad civil investigation into the Trump Organization's business practices. Such potential financial crimes were not explored by the special counsel investigation and could reveal criminal evidence." In his Times op-ed, Weissmann acknowledged the possibility that Trump may pardon his associates, family members, and even himself before leaving office to avoid criminal exposure.

E. Jean Carroll visits 'Tell Me Everything' with John Fugelsang in the SiriusXM Studios on July 11, 2019 in New York. The judge, Lewis Kaplan, last month barred the Justice Department from having the U.S. government replace the presumptive lame-duck president as a defendant in the lawsuit. "Accordingly, the motion to substitute the United States in place of President Trump is denied." A Justice Department spokeswoman did not immediately return a request for comment. Carroll first made her claim of being raped by Trump in a New York magazine article published in July 2019.

James D. Wolfensohn, who escaped a financially pinched Australian childhood to become a top Wall Street deal maker and a two-term president of the World Bank, died on Wednesday at his home in Manhattan. Mr. Wolfensohn was a force on Wall Street for years, helping to rescue the Chrysler Corporation while working for Salomon Brothers and running his own thriving boutique firm, before President Bill Clinton nominated him to lead the World Bank, the world’s largest economic development institution. He led fund-raising efforts as chairman of Carnegie Hall and headed a revival of the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington. An accomplished cellist under the tutelage of the renowned Jacqueline du Pré, he performed at Carnegie Hall on his milestone birthdays. But his main legacy was his stewardship of the World Bank, to which President Clinton nominated him in 1995 after he had given up his Australian citizenship 14 years earlier to qualify for the job, only to be passed over.

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has promised Jonathan Pollard, an American who spent 30 years in U.S. prison for spying for Israel, a warm welcome and a comfortable life in Israel now that parole restrictions have ended. Pollard, 66, said he and his spouse would go to Israel to live, but no date for their travel has been announced. While in prison, the Texas-born Pollard was granted Israeli citizenship, and Israel had long pushed for his release but was spurned by several U.S. presidents. A U.S. Central Intelligence Agency “damage assessment”, made public in 1987, said Pollard had believed U.S. intelligence support of close ally Israel was inadequate. “I truly want to congratulate you that your nightmare is over and you can return home, to Israel,” Netanyahu told Pollard.

David N. Dinkins, the first Black mayor of New York City who worked to unite a divided city as it battled a high crime rate, died Monday at his home in Manhattan at 93 years old, according to the city’s police department. Mr. Dinkins, a Democrat, was elected mayor in 1989 at the end of a municipal scandal that plagued then-Mayor Ed Koch’s third term. He defeated Mr. Koch in a mayoral primary and went on to beat the Republican candidate, then-U.S. Attorney Rudolph Giuliani. When he took office, Mr. Dinkins vowed to be the mayor for every resident and promised a new era in city politics. But Mr. Dinkins’s message of unity and the programs he launched—including a popular after-school program for students and an advisory board to field police complaints—were overshadowed by a high crime rate, a fiscal crisis and race-related riots.
