TOKYO, June 25 (Reuters) - Japanese shares rose on Friday, led by cyclical and technology stocks, as markets tracked a strong finish on Wall Street, although the gains were capped by a cautious outlook of U.S. equities and worries around the domestic economy’s recovery. “Today’s (Friday) market is tracking Wall Street’s strong gains. Technology stocks also advanced, with Tokyo Electron rising 0.99%, Advantest jumping 2.0%, Fanuc gaining 0.46%. Nikkei’s 29,000-mark has become a psychological barrier as Japan’s outlook of an economic recovery remains uncertain, market participants said. Mazda Motor Corp, up 6.35%, gained the most on the Nikkei, followed by Panasonic and Fujikura which rose 3.91%.

LONDON — The U.K. has one of the highest Covid-19 vaccination rates in the world, yet it's seeing a new surge in coronavirus cases largely attributed to the delta variant that first originated in India. Experts say that close attention is being paid to the latest data out of the U.K. as it could be a bellwether for others. And there is a fear that where the U.K. now treads, others — like the U.S. — could follow. "All eyes (are) on UK Covid trends," Kallum Pickering, senior economist and director at Berenberg Bank, said in a note Tuesday. Secondly, he noted that new hospital admissions had increased less than recorded infections — and by much less than during the winter wave.

Schwarber hit a homer to lead off the game and added a three-run shot in his second at-bat in just the 13th time that Schwarber hit leadoff for Washington. He has delivered 12 home runs in those games and is already tied for third in franchise history with five leadoff homers. He is one of just four players in MLB history with at least eight homers and 15 RBIs in a five-game span. The Marlins couldn't get a runner past first base until the fifth inning, and they have now scored just five runs over their past four games. Detroit starter Jose Urena (2-8) gave up six runs, four earned, on eight hits in 3 2/3 innings.

In all, there were 118 freshmen hikers, divided into groups of seven or eight. Every 10 minutes, a team was released onto the path. If a team caught up to the group in front of them, they were supposed to stop and wait five minutes before going on. If it happened again, the slower team had to let the faster team pass them. If he wanted his team to stop, he blew it once.

One city 'ready to explode' as US murder rates surge in pandemic

"It makes no sense," said Ross, 34, adding that no witnesses have stepped forward in the “broad daylight” murder. Such tributes have become a common sight in the poorer neighborhoods of Rochester, a city of 206,000 people in the northwestern part of the state. The per-capita murder rate climbed 30 percent in 2020 among 34 major cities surveyed by Richard Rosenfeld, a criminologist at the University of Missouri in St. Louis. Evans said the murder surge reflects rising problems with drug trafficking, criminal gangs and illegal firearms during the pandemic. The city’s police union, the Rochester Police Locust Club, said the department has only 12 investigators to pursue murder cases.

Job hole or inflation? Fed policymakers split over risk view

"Policymakers will have to take this new risk into account in the months and quarters ahead," Bullard told the Clayton Chamber of Commerce near St. Louis. Kaplan, speaking to the Headliners Club of Austin, said he sees "upside risk" to his projection for 2.4% or 2.5% inflation next year, already at the top of the range of Fed forecasts. Both believe the Fed will need to start raising interest rates from current rock-bottom levels next year. Meanwhile, New York Fed President John Williams and Philadelphia Fed President Patrick Harker, speaking at separate events, emphasized how much farther the labor market has to go before it heals. Since the pandemic began last year, the Fed has faced little tension between its two mandates of full employment and stable prices.

FILE PHOTO: St. Louis Fed President James Bullard speaks about the U.S. economy during an interview in New York February 26, 2015. Bullard earlier this week said he was among the Fed policymakers who expect interest rates will need to increase next year. There has already, he said, been a “substantial” surprise in terms of stronger than anticipated economic growth and inflation. As schools reopen in the U.S. in the fall and more countries reopen their economies, “the risk is tangible” inflation could move higher than projected. “Policymakers will have to take this new risk into account in the months and quarters ahead,” he said.

Post-Fed market action hasn’t exactly been straightforward and one week after the bank kicked off tapering talk and signalled a 2023 rate hike investors are still trying to make full sense of it. So while investors assess Fed’s policy shift, the focus today moves to the Bank of England with the pound holding below a two-year high hit earlier this month. Finally Germany’s IFO will also be eyed for more insight into the strength of business climate in Europe’s No.1 economy.

The ticker and trading information for Blackstone Group is displayed at the post where it is traded on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) April 4, 2016. REUTERS/Brendan McDermid/File PhotoJune 24 (Reuters) - Private equity firm Blackstone Group (BX.N) has sweetened its buyout offer for St. Modwen Properties (SMP.L) to 1.25 billion pounds ($1.75 billion), the companies said on Thursday, adding that the London-listed firm was backing the latest proposal. The 560 pence per share cash offer for St. Modwen is the final offer, the companies said, adding that Blackstone could make another proposal if another suitor for St. Modwen emerged. Last month, Blackstone put forward a 542 pence per share takeover proposal, after the U.S.-based company had made a series of overtures to the British real estate developer. The latest offer is at a premium of about 25% to St. Modwen's closing price the day before the first offer was made in May.

Britain risks missing climate targets due to lack of policies -advisers

REUTERS/Tom Nicholson/File PhotoLONDON, June 24 (Reuters) - Britain's lack of policies to meet net zero emissions by 2050 is jeopardising its chance of meeting the target, the country's climate advisers said in a progress report on Thursday. Britain in 2019 became the G7 first member to set a net zero target, which will require wholesale changes in the way that Britons travel, eat and consume electricity. The country is also hosting international climate talks in November in Glasgow, where countries are expected to outline plans to meet the Paris climate agreement to keep global warming under 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit). Britain's greenhouse gas emissions have fallen almost 50% since 1990 largely due to an increase in renewable power such as wind and solar, and a move away from polluting coal. Failure to publish a clear strategy soon will also undermine Britain's ability to encourage other countries to set tougher climate goals at the Glasgow talks, the CCC said.

Stray cats are seen on a pedestrian street in the old city of Nicosia, Cyprus, April 15, 2020. Ayiomamitis is one of a number of volunteers struggling to feed the thousands of stray cats on the Mediterranean island. "We are looking at a feral cat population approaching a million, that's a rough estimate," said Ayiomamitis, chairman of the Cat PAWS society. At a cat sanctuary 80 km (65 miles) from the capital, volunteers find abandoned cats and their kittens dumped outside the fence virtually every day. People are constantly phoning us, dumping cats outside," said David Fender, operations manager and chairman of the Malcolm Cat Protection Society.

Since March 2020, teachers have been on the front lines of addressing some of the most serious social implications of the coronavirus pandemic. Before the pandemic, researchers estimated that one out of six American teachers was likely to leave the profession. New survey data from the nonprofit RAND Corporation suggests that now one out of four teachers is considering quitting after this school year. Richardson herself is the daughter of a high school teacher.

Russia said it fired warning shots at the Royal Navy destroyer, which the British government denied. Russia said one of its warships fired warning shots and a warplane dropped bombs in the path of British destroyer Defender on Wednesday to drive it away from waters near the Crimean city of Sevastopol. "If it doesn't help, we may drop bombs and not just in the path but right on target, if colleagues don't get it otherwise." Mikhail Khodaryonok, a retired Russian army colonel who works as a military analyst in Moscow, said the Russian warplane apparently dropped bombs miles away from the British ship. He charged that the British denial that Russia had fired warning shots and dropped bombs to chase the Defender away was an attempt to save face.

Children eat peanut butter sandwiches during the Sabbath service, at The School of Vision, a Rastafari community in the Blue Mountains, near Kingston, Jamaica, on June 19, 2021. This isolated community of around 100 people called the School of Vision has so far escaped the ravages of the pandemic. Prominent Rastafari reggae and dancehall artists like Spragga Benz and Cocoa Tea have voiced skepticism about the COVID-19 vaccines, influencing their large followings on social media. Blending Old Testament Christian prophecy and pan-African political consciousness, Rastafari philosophy and lifestyle became famous around the world through Bob Marley's reggae songs. Jahlani Niaah, a lecturer of Rastafari studies at the University of the West Indies, said "average Jamaicans have more skepticism" because of Rastafari mistrust.

WASHINGTON—President Biden will nominate Cindy McCain, the widow of Sen. John McCain, to be U.S. representative to the United Nations Agencies for Food and Agriculture, a post that carries the rank of ambassador, the White House said. Mrs. McCain was among a handful of high-profile Republicans who endorsed Mr. Biden in the 2020 presidential race. The White House named Mrs. McCain as part of a slate of nominations Mr. Biden will make for key roles in his administration. The list also named Claire Cronin, a Democratic Massachusetts state representative, as Mr. Biden’s pick for U.S. ambassador to Ireland. Mr. Biden met virtually with the Irish prime minister Micheál Martin on St. Patrick’s Day, and the latter was among the first foreign leaders he spoke to after being elected president.

If you were ever to say you were gay (when Moon played), that’d be like you were considered soft. Moon played in the league from 1984 to 2000. Whether the NFL at that time was aware that gay players were on team rosters, Moon says he doesn't know. No one felt comfortable coming out," says Rapoport of her early years at the NFL. Part of why Carl Nassib coming out is so impactful, I think, is it takes the first active player to come out and that will catalyze that movement.

Posts from friends suggest Michael B. Jordan unveiled a new rum called "J'ouvert" over the weekend. Black Panther actor Michael B. Jordan is facing backlash from Caribbean fans who are accusing the actor of cultural appropriation following the release of a new spirits venture launched called "J'ouvert Rum." Posts shared to Instagram show Jordan, who is African American, posing in front of the J'ouvert brand logo along with a small bottle of J'ouvert rum, and an old-fashioned rum recipe. They further pinpointed the brand partnership as an example of Black Americans without ties to the region or its diaspora profiting from sacred, Caribbean cultural traditions without learning their significance or history. Insider reached out to Angostura's executive manager of marketing Hema Ramkissoon who declined to comment on their relationship with J'ouvert Rum and Jordan's current controversy.
