Chinese money brokers based in Mexico “have come to dominate international money laundering markets,” U.S. prosecutors said in a Sept. 24 sentencing memorandum for Gan’s case. Reuters spoke to more than a dozen law enforcement officials, diplomats, lawyers and sources familiar with the Gan case or Chinese money laundering techniques. The U.S. Department of the Treasury and Europol, the European Union’s law enforcement arm, have warned about the expanding web of Chinese crime groups laundering drug money. “It’s the most sophisticated form of money laundering that’s ever existed,” one of the U.S. sources familiar with the investigation said. That allows the Chinese money brokers, in turn, to charge traffickers nominal fees of just a few percentage points.

Instead, Folx patients tell care providers what their goals are, whether that's gender confirmation surgery or conception and maintaining sexual health. "I'm not a big believer in the primary care provider model, because it's a general store on the prairie model," Breitenstein said. Rebuilding the LGBTQIA+ healthcare model from 'top to bottom'The healthcare system in the United States is "unnecessarily messy and ugly" for LGBTQIA+ patients, Breitenstein said. "We would like to be the health and lifestyle brand for the queer and trans community for all things healthcare," Breitenstein said. "That's not delivering the traditional model of healthcare but rebuilding it top to bottom."

"The last thing one wants to do is turn Inauguration Day into a superspreader event," Lurie told Insider this week. The White House has a specialized air-ventilation system that's designed to detect radiation or a chemical agent. The White House is always kept clean, said the former White House usher Walters. Another concern is the possibility of infections transmitted from White House staff who don't change with the administration. They might even want to wear them if they're alone in the White House on Inauguration Day waiting for the air to clear.

Some Whole Foods workers say they are scared and stressed out ahead of the holidays and amid a worsening coronavirus crisis. The situation mirrors a broader crisis among America's grocery store workers. Their fears point to a larger trend among grocery store workers nationwide who have been on the front lines of a pandemic for nearly 10 months. Whole Foods told Business Insider that the meal was served by Whole Foods team members who are highly trained in food safety. "How many more grocery workers and Americans need to die before these grocery store companies realize this?"

The Navy is renaming its Fleet Forces Command as the US Atlantic Fleet in response to "the unique maritime challenges of the Atlantic theater," the top Navy civilian official said this week. "To meet the unique maritime challenges of the Atlantic theater, we will rename Fleet Forces Command as the US Atlantic Fleet," Braithwaite said. The Atlantic Fleet, Braithwaite said, will confront the Russian navy, which has been "deploying closer and closer to our East Coast." The move to bring back the Atlantic Fleet follows the Navy's 2018 decision to reestablish the US 2nd Fleet to counter Russian presence in the Atlantic. US 2nd Fleet currently falls under Fleet Forces Command.

Several state and local governments have recently voted to rebuke governors' public health orders. This week, hearings and votes were taken up in Colorado, Missouri, Ohio, Virginia and Washington to flout restrictions.

SWEDEN IS NOT “PROOF THAT LOCKDOWNS ARE USELESS”As Prager states in the video, “Sweden did not lock down” in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. A study published in the Lancet medical journal on Nov. 4 (here) estimates the level of herd immunity required to block SARS-CoV-2 transmission to be about 60 to 72%. Even if “unofficial” infections were higher than 2.5%, they’re unlikely to have reached the level needed for herd immunity. The possibility of reinfection with COVID-19 poses another obstacle to achieving herd immunity through community infection ( here, here ). The current COVID-19 situation in Sweden is not “proof that lockdowns are useless.” COVID-19 infection and death statistics show new increases in November 2020 meaning Sweden has not achieved herd immunity.

As coronavirus soars, U.S. cheers Britain's vaccine approval

(Reuters) - U.S. health experts on Wednesday welcomed British emergency approval of Pfizer Inc’s COVID-19 vaccine, a sign that U.S. regulators may soon follow suit in a bid to bring the surging pandemic under control. An FDA panel of outside advisers will meet on Dec. 10 to discuss whether to recommend emergency use authorization of the Pfizer vaccine. Of particular interest is how Britain manages the Pfizer vaccine’s requirement to be stored at minus-70 degrees Celsius (-94 Fahrenheit). But the British experience is unlikely to factor into U.S. regulatory approval, which instead will focus on the clinical trial data. Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca Plc have already started manufacturing their vaccines and say distribution could begin almost immediately after approval.

“I actually believe they’re going to be the most difficult time in the public health history of this nation.”More than 270,000 Americans have perished from COVID-19 to date. The dire warning came as U.S. health experts on Wednesday welcomed British emergency approval of Pfizer Inc’s COVID-19 vaccine, a sign that U.S. regulators may soon follow suit. Beyond regulatory hurdles, vaccinations face opposition from significant numbers of Americans who reject medical science and fear vaccines as harmful. Similarly, many Americans still refuse to follow basic public health guidance on wearing masks and avoiding crowds. In hopes of increasing compliance, the CDC on Wednesday added new guidelines for shorter quarantines after coronavirus exposure.

No CFO indicated they think it is "very likely" that a corporate tax hike is coming, though a little under one-third of chief financial officers (32%) indicated they do think it is "somewhat likely" Biden achieves his corporate tax goal. Where tax policy experts think Biden can act"Absent single party control, it will be extremely challenging for the Biden Administration to legislatively roll back the 2017 tax reform," Caroline Harris, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's vice president, tax policy and economic development, and chief tax policy counsel, wrote in an email to CNBC. "Biden's biggest revenue-raisers are an increase in the corporate tax rate from 21 percent to 28 percent and a provision to impose the Social Security payroll tax on wages above $400,000. Biden's plan would combine this new tax break with several corporate tax increases, including new taxes on U.S. firms with overseas income. "The consensus seems to be that Biden will attempt to raise corporate taxes and be unsuccessful in doing so.

Masks should not be worn during "vigorous intensity physical activity," according to controversial guidance the World Health Organization released Tuesday. As such, WHO said "people should not wear masks during vigorous intensity physical activity because masks may reduce the ability to breathe comfortably." One small study, for instance, showed that healthy exercisers' blood and muscle oxygen levels weren't affected when performing the same fitness test with a cloth mask, medical mask, and no mask. In places with "known or sporadic" transmission, healthcare workers should wear medical masks when patients are present, the WHO said. Caregivers or housemates of suspected or confirmed COVID-19 should also wear medical masks when in the same room.

The new boots will fill a gap in Marine footwear, providing comfort in temperatures ranging from 20 degrees Fahrenheit to -20 degrees Fahrenheit. Marines are getting new boots that can survive in temperatures as low as -20 degrees Fahrenheit, the Corps said Tuesday, revealing that the boots fill a longstanding gap in Marine footwear. Right now, the Corps has a Temperate Weather marine Corps Combat Boot for operations in temperatures between 20 degrees and 60 degrees Fahrenheit and an Extreme Cold Weather Vapor Barrier Boot for temperatures between -20 degrees and -65 degrees. In that space between 20 degrees and -20 degrees Fahrenheit, the latter is too warm while the former isn't warm enough. "I believe these boots will further support Marines in cold weather environments and help them achieve mission success," he added.

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump is discussing the possibility of announcing a campaign to retake the White House in 2024 on Inauguration Day and skipping the swearing-in of his successor, according to three people familiar with the discussions. Regardless of the timing of a campaign announcement, Trump is not expected to attend the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden, according to the people familiar with the discussions. He also does not plan to invite Biden to the White House or even call him, they said. But Trump is keen on the idea of formally launching a 2024 campaign on Inauguration Day because that’s when he filed for re-election in 2017, people familiar with the discussions said. The Daily Beast first reported that Trump might hold a rally on Inauguration Day.

WASHINGTON — A bipartisan group of lawmakers outlined a temporary $908 billion coronavirus relief proposal on Tuesday, far less than Democrats had hoped for, aimed at breaking a stalemate that has persisted for months. Republican leadership is pushing for a $500 billion package that has faltered in the Senate amid a lack of bipartisan support. The proposal includes $160 billion in aid to state and local governments, a priority for Democrats that Republicans have resisted. The framework provides $288 billion in support for small businesses like restaurants, and $180 billion to renew unemployment insurance, according to a summary obtained by NBC News. The working group pushing the new deal also includes four Republicans: Rep. Tom Reed of New York and Sens.

Reuters also reviewed data from 10 community-based air monitoring projects by residents worried that government air-quality assessments are inaccurate. About 120 million Americans live in counties that have no EPA pollution monitors at all for small particle pollution, according to agency data. Other Philadelphia monitors were either upwind or too far away to detect the explosion’s pollution, according to the EPA data, which shows wind direction and speed. A community project in New York City, for example, has deployed up to 150 air monitors over the past decade. Overall, between October 2016 and February 2017, the community monitors detected 1,426 episodes of elevated levels of particulate matter, or 12 times what government monitors recorded.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President-elect Joe Biden’s promise to end U.S. fossil fuel subsidies worth billions of dollars a year for drillers and miners could be hard to keep due to resistance from lawmakers in a narrowly divided Congress, including from within his own party. Biden has said axing fossil fuel subsidies will generate money to help pay for his broader $2 trillion climate plan. It would help establish the United States as a global leader on climate, potentially helping convince other big emitters to axe fossil fuel subsidies. Estimates of the value of fossil fuel subsidies, which mainly take the form of tax breaks, vary. Biden and Congress will be under pressure to reduce the federal deficit by cutting such tax breaks.

Senate confirms two Trump picks for energy regulation panel
  + stars: | 2020-12-01 | by ( Reuters Staff | ) www.reuters.com + 0.99   time to read: +1 min
REUTERS/Yuri GripasWASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate on Monday confirmed two of President Donald Trump’s picks for the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), in a move that could secure a Republican majority on the panel through June. The Senate passed Mark Christie, a Republican, and Allison Clements, a Democrat, by voice vote to FERC, an independent panel of the Energy Department. The panel regulates the transmission of electricity and natural gas across states and reviews large energy projects such as liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals. But the panel could have more Republicans than Democrats through June, 2021, when the term of commissioner Neil Chatterjee, a Republican, ends. Newly confirmed pick Clements is the founder and president of Goodgrid LLC, an energy policy and strategy consulting company based in Utah.

He called for an "interim package" to provide support until President-elect Joe Biden takes office in January. Bipartisan lawmakers plan to unveil a coronavirus stimulus package Tuesday after months of congressional inaction on curbing the economic damage from the outbreak. Senators who have joined in the discussions about the aid proposal include Warner, Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.V., Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, and Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah. If the unemployment programs expire at the end of the year, about 12 million Americans could lose benefits. Some lawmakers could push to tie coronavirus aid provisions to a spending bill Congress needs to pass before Dec. 11 to avoid a government shutdown.
