Other cities, like Miami, are nearly free of pandemic restrictions and booming with tourists. Homicides in Miami are 30 percent higher this year than the same period in 2020, according to data from the medical examiner’s office. The efforts include additional streetlights and surveillance cameras, prosecutors assigned to “hot spot” areas and a code enforcement crackdown on illegal party venues. But he is worried about the unruly gatherings of younger people downtown that have turned violent. “I’m very concerned that as people return to work, there are going to be confrontations,” he said.

On TikTok, Jewish creators say speaking about their Judaism comes with a price. Jewish creators said they’re frustrated with the moderation process that has them feeling targeted, though they aren’t exactly sure how or why it’s happening. Others, like Josh Cohen, 19, of London, said they think they’re getting caught in a clumsy algorithm likely designed to protect Jewish creators. Jewish creators said they sometimes run into problems when they reply to antisemitic comments on their pages. Several Jewish TikTok creators told NBC News they, too, have received some version of the "Hitler was right," comment on their page.

Eleanor Holmes Norton, a Democrat who has — as she has done every year since taking office in 1991 — introduced a D.C. statehood measure. Many Republicans oppose statehood for Washington, D.C. — and for Puerto Rico — because any congressional representation would almost certainly be Democratic. “They cite various reasons for why they want D.C. statehood, but the truth is that these extra Senate seats would be a rubber stamp for their radical, far-left agenda.”The House in April passed a D.C. statehood bill with a record number of co-sponsors and the endorsement of President Joe Biden, as well. Even without the filibuster, key Democratic senators like Joe Manchin of West Virginia are not on board with making Washington, D.C., the 51st state. “My father, who is now retired, was around in 1959 when Alaska and Hawaii became the 49th and 50th states,” Beard said.

Mr. Biden, on his first international trip as president, was set to meet with the leaders of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the U.K. in the first face-to-face gathering of the G-7 since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. Leaders from other major democracies—South Korea, South Africa and Australia—will attend while Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will participate via video link because of the Covid-19 pandemic raging through his country. The summit will also be one of the first major diplomatic outings for Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga and one of the last for German Chancellor Angela Merkel. The leaders can “appear as superheroes to save the world,” says Robert Yates, a project director at think tank Chatham House. The G-7, however, makes up a shrinking share of the world economy: When it emerged in 1975, its members made up 70% of the global economy.

Particularly coming out of World War II, the Soviet Union and the United States were the global leaders in vaccine science. So while the technology was developed in the United States, there just was no way to test this in the United States. And they visited with American scientists and asked for a sample of this new polio vaccine to bring back to the Soviet Union. And the live polio vaccine sample was carried to the Soviet Union by one account in the pocket of Mikhail Chumakov. And they decide that they will provide the live polio vaccine to their own young children on sugar cubes.

Selfridges’ 4 billion pound price tag is suitably rich for a luxury department store. The group’s owners, the Weston family, bought Selfridges for nearly 600 million pounds in 2003. It’s nearly 5 times the company’s 852 million pounds of annual pre-pandemic sales. The Westons may argue that the value of Selfridges’ property portfolio has gone up since the Harrods deal, as have wider stock-market multiples. - The retailer is owned by the Canadian wing of the Weston family which bought it in 2003 for 598 million pounds.

“It’s a problem Facebook has known about for many years.”Facebook spokesman Andy Stone said that the company prohibits "content that offers to provide or facilitate human smuggling. He added that Facebook permits content related to seeking asylum and that it had consulted with the United Nations on its content policies around human smuggling. The policies draw on the U.N. definition of human smuggling as “the procurement or facilitation of illegal entry into a state across international borders” that doesn’t necessarily involve coercion or force. Since 2015, researchers and journalists have regularly identified pages dedicated to human smuggling on Facebook.

Colorado is trying to be more welcoming to those undocumented residents. Jared Polis has signed into law measures aimed at expanding access to housing, jobs and state benefits to undocumented immigrants. “Colorado needs the contributions from everybody in our state with all different talents and skills to have good jobs and work and employ their abilities to make us all better off.”The 180,000 undocumented immigrants who live in Colorado make up about 3 percent of the state’s population. Critics of the law say lawmakers are enabling an open-door policy for undocumented residents to enter Colorado and take jobs and opportunities away from deserving locals. Proponents also point to pandemic casualties like Anyela, an undocumented Colorado resident, who has struggled since the start of the outbreak.

Goldman asks bankers if they’ve been vaccinatedGoldman Sachs wants to know how many of its bankers have gotten a Covid shot. The bank sent a memo this week informing employees in the U.S. that they must report their vaccination status by noon today. Disclosing vaccination status has been optional until now. In May, Goldman told employees that they could go maskless in the Manhattan office if they reported their vaccination status. (The E.E.O.C made clear this month that asking employees for their vaccination status is legal, so long as the data is kept confidential.)

For some developed economies, a return to pre-pandemic conditions means central bank stimulus withdrawal is already in the works. The Norwegian central bank has already announced plans to raise rates in the third or fourth quarter of 2021. While decisions in such countries would primarily be driven by domestic considerations, the Fed’s eventual withdrawal of support looms large as a global risk for every central bank. Even Japan’s central bank, which has hardly budged from its ultra-accommodative settings through decades of global cycles, may see an opportunity to dial back stimulus. Turkey was ahead of the pack and aggressively tightened last year, a move its central bank governor hopes will serve as a “shield” against any Fed pivot.

There are now more than 300 comments on the post dated May 3 from service members asking when the tuition assistance program, known as Army IgnitED, will work again. More than 110,000 soldiers used the tuition assistance program in the last fiscal year and more than 81,000 soldiers have enrolled in more than 255,000 courses so far this year. The Army tuition assistance program is authorized by law and pays for soldiers to go to school, covering tuition costs for certifications, as well as associate, bachelor's or master's degrees. Maj. of the Army Michael Grinston has responded to tweets regarding the delayed tuition assistance, but soldiers said they feel the response from Army leadership has been limited and disappointing. “We keep hearing about all these minor or trivial changes that the Army wants to make, but they really haven’t said a single word about our tuition assistance.

They certainly didn’t emerge with a mandate for massive left-wing policy changes. Yet that’s exactly what they’ve been pushing, and they’ve been smug about it. They seemed to think Americans would welcome whatever expensive, wacky legislation Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and President Biden offered. Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema may not be sincere when they say they oppose killing the filibuster. But it’s quite likely they’re serious when they say they won’t vote to kill it.

Direct actions are promoted on social media with the phrase “No gods, no masters,” a 19th-century anarchist term that indicates a rejection of all forms of authority. Demetria Hester, a member of Moms United for Black Lives, continues to push for defunding the police but disagrees with the current call for dismantling the entire political system. “Being able to protest every night is a white privilege, being able to yell at a police’s face is a white privilege,” said Gregory McKelvey, a prominent Black organizer who ran the mayoral campaign last year for Mr. Wheeler’s opponent, Sarah Iannarone. “These are people who have felt like they’ve had no agency or power in their life or in the political system,” he said. “They want to feel powerful, and when you can have the mayor talking about you every single day, and hundreds of police officers show up to fight you every day, you feel more powerful than when you’re sitting at home.”

Why the Hybrid Workplace Is a Cybersecurity Nightmare

But for those teams working to protect their offices from hackers, the new hybrid workplaces aren’t nearly as welcome. In a typical hybrid workplace, some employees will be in the office, some will be working from home—or spaces like coffee shops and client headquarters—and some will be cycling back and forth. So, security chiefs are faced with the task of supporting a constantly changing mix of office workers and remote workers, and company and home devices. “It’s hard to maintain a security staff that looks one way in the data center or one way in an office, and then one way for remote employees,” he says. Making things even worse: Security teams have been stretched thin by the demands of the pandemic.

The coronavirus will likely still be circulating at low levels this fall, so schools cannot simply operate as they did before the pandemic. Schools can also stop taking the temperatures of students when they arrive, as this has not proved to be a reliable screening tool for Covid-19. Schools should continue to require tests for people who have been exposed to Covid-19 or show symptoms. Research has repeatedly shown that the risk of coronavirus transmission outside is very low. As long as transmission rates remain low, children should be able to skip the masks while playing outside.

The $34 billion deal’s outline suggests the family could get a big windfall, without giving up their empire. In the proposed transaction they’ll refinance a bit less than half of that with debt, and sell three-quarters of what’s left to the buyout firms. Medline’s founders were well placed to get a sweet deal because other buyout firms were also circling. They’ll retain significant influence through their stake and through the company’s top managers being family members. In short, it looks like they’ve managed to have their cake and eat it – something more often true of buyout firms themselves.

Readings from the thermometers will be sent to the accompanying app, which also asks users to log any other symptoms they may be experiencing. School administrators and families can view information about grade-level trends at their own schools — that there are four ailing fourth-graders, for instance. “The reason that we’re targeting elementary schools is because we know parents of elementary-age children are power users of thermometers,” said Nita Nehru, vice president of communications at Kinsa. Thermometers, of course, will not catch ailments that are not accompanied by fevers, and many cases of Covid, especially in children, are asymptomatic. Moreover, schools and families that opt into the program may not be representative of the city’s population at large.

But there are some indications that behind the scenes, Ms. Harris pushed for leadership roles on these charged policy issues. Yet in the Senate, Ms. Harris was not known for her close relationships with moderates like Mr. Manchin. It’s unclear if she will be able to broker the kind of compromises within her party that will be necessary to pass a voting rights bill. While the Justice Department can bring litigation against voter-suppression measures, Ms. Harris can’t been seen as pressuring the agency to do so. Still, there may be political upside for Ms. Harris in taking on voting rights.
