REUTERS/Mike Blake/File PhotoSept 21 (Reuters) - U.S. delivery firm FedEx Corp (FDX.N) posted a 7% drop in quarterly profit and cut its full-year forecast on Tuesday, after labor shortages crimped earnings, slowed packages and drove up costs ahead of the all-important holiday peak season. On the heels of the report, FedEx lowered its full-year forecast for earnings, excluding items, to $19.75 to $21.00 per share. FedEx previously forecast 2022 earnings per share, excluding items, of $20.50 to $21.50. Up-and-coming rival Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) is touting average pay of $18 per hour as it races to expand its own delivery network. At the market close on Tuesday, shares in FedEx were down 10% over the past six months, while UPS shares gained 19%.

Britain's Prince Andrew leaves St Mary the Virgin church in Hillington, near royal Sandringham estate, in Norfolk, Britain January 19, 2020. REUTERS/Chris Radburn/File PhotoNEW YORK, Sept 20 (Reuters) - Britain's Prince Andrew has been served in the United States with a sexual assault lawsuit by a woman who said his conduct occurred around when his friend Jeffrey Epstein was sexually abusing her, court papers show. Giuffre's lawyers previously said they also served Andrew, who is Queen Elizabeth's second son, in Britain. She also said Andrew abused her at around the same time in Epstein's mansion in Manhattan and on Epstein's private island in the U.S. Virgin Islands. U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan, who oversees Giuffre's lawsuit, has urged both sides not to dwell on "technicalities" and instead to focus on the case's substance.

Migrants take shelter along the Del Rio International Bridge at sunset as they await to be processed after crossing the Rio Grande river into the U.S. from Ciudad Acuna in Del Rio, Texas, U.S. September 19, 2021. Now, with some 16,000 migrants sheltering in precarious conditions under the International Bridge connecting Del Rio and Mexico's Ciudad Acuña, the resentment is getting worse. On Friday night, a local lawyer published a Facebook post saying that local school district buses were transferring migrants, mostly Haitians, to processing facilities. The local school district superintendent issued a statement explaining that only two buses, neither currently in use to transport students, had been deployed. A small group protested on Saturday, with one woman waving a sign that said "BIDEN BORDER CRISIS."

The exterior of the US Capitol is seen as Senators work to advance the bipartisan infrastructure bill in Washington, U.S., August 8, 2021. But the party's moderate and progressive factions are at odds over the size of the $3.5 trillion program, which includes proposals for childcare, education, housing and green energy. Progressives insist on passing the $1 trillion infrastructure bill and the $3.5 trillion measure in tandem, with some threatening to vote against the smaller bill otherwise. ​ Moderate Senate Democrats including Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema say $3.5 trillion is too much; Manchin suggests spending less than half that. To get the bill passed in the Senate, Democrats plan to use a maneuver called budget "reconciliation" to avoid the requirement for 60 votes in the 100-member chamber.

Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in New York City, U.S., July 12, 2021. Options market analysts said there were few indications that investors were putting on trades to shield their portfolios from further market drops, at least for now, however. The VIX has lingered around the 20 level in recent days, pointing to elevated expectations for near-term stock market gyrations, even as stocks remained close to record highs. Instead, many investors appeared to be focused on reaping gains on existing hedges that would have profited from a fall in stocks, analysts said. Stock market sell-offs over the last few years have been fleeting.

The Democrats, who control Congress by the narrowest of margins, also want to maneuver a $3.5 trillion spending package - including proposals for childcare, education, housing and green energy - past a Republican roadblock. “It may be $3.5 (trillion), it may be really close to that or maybe closer to something else,” Representative James Clyburn, the third-ranking House Democrat, told CNN on Sunday. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi has promised to take up the bipartisan $1 trillion infrastructure bill just a week after her chamber returns from summer break. Moderate Senate Democrats including Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema say $3.5 trillion is too much; Manchin suggests spending less than half that. Democrats suffered a setback on Sunday when the parliamentarian ruled they cannot attach immigration reforms to the $3.5 trillion plan.

Robert Durst looks at jurors as he appears in an Inglewood courtroom with his attorneys for closing arguments in the his murder trial at the Inglewood Courthouse in California, U.S., September 8, 2021. A Galveston jury acquitted Durst of murder, even though Durst admitted he chopped up Black's body and dumped it in Galveston Bay. The California prosecutors argued that Durst murdered Black because Black discovered Durst's identity, and Durst feared Black would turn him in. Durst is the grandson of Joseph Durst and son of Seymour Durst, who built The Durst Organization into one of New York City's premier real estate companies which has developed some of Manhattan's signature skyscrapers. Robert Durst long ago left the company, now run by his estranged brother Douglas Durst, who testified at trial and said of his sibling: "He'd like to murder me."

In closing arguments, Lewin called Durst a "narcissistic psychopath" who killed Berman in an attempt to cover up the disappearance of his wife, Kathleen McCormack Durst, in New York in 1982. Shortly after the verdict, the McCormack family issued a statement urging prosecutors in Westchester County, New York, to prosecute Durst. A Galveston jury acquitted Durst of murder, even though Durst admitted he chopped up Black's body and dumped it in Galveston Bay. One was the recorded 2017 testimony of Nick Chavin, a mutual friend who said Durst admitted to him in 2014 that he had killed Berman.

Galvin, the state's top securities regulator, alleged MassMutual also inadequately supervised other agents and failed to review their social media usage or catch excessive trading in their personal accounts. The company agreed to pay a $4 million fine to resolve those allegations and another $750,000 for failing to register 478 broker-dealer agents. It also agreed to overhaul its social media policies. At the time, Gill worked at MassMutual in a marketing and financial education job and was a registered financial broker in Massachusetts. State regulators found MassMutual failed to detect nearly 1,700 trades by Gill, who was able to execute at least two trades in GameStop in excess of $700,000, beyond a company limit.

REUTERS/StringerTHE HAGUE, Sept 16 (Reuters) - Armenia filed a case at the World Court asserting that Azerbaijan has violated an international treaty on racial discrimination, the court said on Thursday. A spokesperson for the Azerbaijan Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Azerbaijan would defend itself "robustly" and planned to file a countersuit accusing Armenia of the same thing. "Armenia therefore requests the Court to hold Azerbaijan responsible for its violations ... to prevent future harm, and to redress the harm that has already been caused,” it said. The Azerbaijan spokesperson said the country has been compiling evidence of Armenian human rights abuses against Azerbaijanis and it would file its own suit at the court in "days." The world court, formally known as the International Court of Justice, is the United Nations' court for resolving disputes between countries.

REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst/File Photo/File PhotoSept 15 (Reuters) - Republican lawmakers in Pennsylvania voted on Wednesday to subpoena the state's top election official in a review that joins widely criticized efforts in other battleground states to fuel doubts about the 2020 election. Trump's loss in Pennsylvania to President Joe Biden by nearly 81,000 votes was confirmed by multiple audits and certified more than 9 months ago. The rally that day ended with a deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol to stop Biden's victory from being certified. Dush said that unlike a widely criticized election audit going on in Arizona, Pennsylvania's review would be funded by taxpayers. "The legislature has no authority to overturn an election," said Corman, the chamber's president pro tempore.
