The beloved Central Park owl who captivated jaded New Yorkers before being killed in a truck collision had dangerous, "potentially lethal" levels rat poison in her system, authorities said Tuesday. "The bromadiolone level is potentially lethal but it is unclear if it played a direct role in the death of this owl, i.e. whether the anticoagulant affected the owl's ability to avoid collision with the vehicle," according to the report. The park uses "rodenticides that are listed as 'low to moderately low' non-target animal risk," according to parks representative Crystal Howard. "Predatory birds must hunt for their food and often, like their prey, find their food outside of park boundaries," Howard said in a statement.

U.S. corporate bonds perk up after stock selloff
  + stars: | 2021-09-21 | by ( Reuters Staff | )   time to read: +2 min
REUTERS/Andrew Kelly/File PhotoCHICAGO (Reuters) - Like the U.S. stock market, the nation’s corporate bond market on Tuesday steadied one day after fear of contagion risk from debt-troubled China property developer Evergrande rattled global financial assets. Amid caution ahead of Wednesday’s Federal Reserve policy announcement, Wall Street clawed back some losses from Monday’s selloff and corporate debt offerings were returning after being sidelined by the market volatility, according to Refinitiv’s IFR. High-yield bond spreads rose on Monday, after falling last week to their lowest level since July in a sign of a general risk-on mood. The spread refers to the interest rate premium investors demand to hold corporate debt over safer Treasury bonds. The spread on the ICE BofA U.S. Corporate Index, a benchmark for investment-grade debt, increased only a basis point to 91 basis points on Monday.

Amid a crushing labor shortage, retail companies are dangling perks such as triple-digit sign-on bonuses, free college tuition and record-high wages in the scramble to staff up before the busy holiday shopping season. “Hiring intention in the upcoming quarter is higher than ever.”Between November and January, holiday retail sales are estimated to hit $1.3 trillion, an increase of around 8 percent since last year, according to Deloitte’s holiday retail forecast. It now takes 40 days to fill a retail position, a 21 percent increase from April this year, it reported. The lag in filling retail positions has retailers starting holiday hiring early this year, said Neil Saunders, a retail analyst with GlobalData. Tovinger, who said he has made a living selling clearance and discount items on eBay, plans to work the holiday season to save for a move to Wyoming with his girlfriend.

But while the homeless are eager to grab up backpacks, some are less enthusiastic about getting a vaccine. With so few homeless people fully vaccinated, Newman fears the worst. As of the end of February, the New York City Department of Homeless Services documented 113 deaths of homeless people from Covid, 101 of whom died in shelters. To incentivize them, the group offers $25 McDonald’s gift cards, and volunteers share their own stories about getting the vaccine. The city is also working on getting more homeless vaccinated.

Tech giants, with billions of dollars in cash reserves, have been taking advantage of lower office building prices across cities in the United States. While Big Tech is growing its footprint, others are vacating office spaces as pandemic-led remote working has prompted companies to reassess the need for real estate. Financial firms, including JPMorgan Chase & Co, were looking to sublet big blocks of office space in Manhattan, according to media reports here from earlier this year.

REUTERS/Jeenah MoonCHICAGO/LONDON, Sept 21 (Reuters) - America's reopening to international air travelers can't come soon enough for U.S. and European airlines which have sorely missed the lucrative transatlantic market. "The transatlantic market is a key profit generator for the main European legacy airline groups," said Bernstein analyst Daniel Roeska. LEAN WINTERThe lifting of restrictions coincides with the onset of winter season, historically a lean period for international travel, when many airlines tend to make a loss. In the United States, though, airlines fear the travel recovery could by blunted by the Delta variant of the coronavirus. In early September, U.S. airline passenger volumes for international travel were just 44% of the pre-pandemic levels, according to data from trade body Airlines for America.

Angela Weiss | AFP | Getty ImagesMinisters from Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia will not meet with Iran at the United Nations this week to discuss a return to nuclear deal talks, European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borrell told reporters on Monday.

It's not in the agenda," said Borrell, who acts as coordinator for the nuclear deal — known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). Trump reimposed harsh sanctions on Iran, which then started breaching curbs on its nuclear program. The Vienna talks were adjourned in June after hardliner Ebrahim Raisi was elected Iran's president and took office in August.

Google on Tuesday announced it would spend $2.1 billion to buy a sprawling Manhattan office building on the Hudson River waterfront, further cementing the tech giant’s rapidly expanding presence in New York City and providing a jolt of optimism for a city lashed by the pandemic and the shift to remote work. Even before the pandemic, the four firms that make up so-called Big Tech — Amazon, Apple, Google and Facebook — had rapidly grown their operations and work force in New York.

Google was already leasing the 1.3 million square-foot property. The company has 12,000 corporate employees in New York City — one of its largest satellite offices outside its California headquarters — and said on Tuesday it planned to hire another 2,000 workers in the city in the coming years.
