George Washington University Law School Faculty Tried To Get Bill Barr’s Honorary Degree Revoked »
4 Jun 2020, 20:37

George Washington University Law School Faculty Tried To Get Bill Barr’s Honorary Degree RevokedFaculty members at George Washington University Law School pushed this week for the school to rescind the honorary degree it had bestowed upon alumnus Bill Barr following the Attorney General’s efforts to clamp down on protests in the nation’s capital, sources tell The Daily Beast. The push, which one source described as “serious,” was met by opposition from other members who argued that Barr’s actions—while aggressive and controversial—did not merit such a punishment from the university. For now, it appears Barr will keep his degree, amid warnings that it could set the university down a slippery slope of politically motivated degree-rescinding.Nevertheless, the angst among the law school’s faculty is yet another data point underscoring how much of a pariah Barr has become in establishment circles and how appalled those circles, and others well beyond it, have been with the Trump administration’s handling of the protests. A spokesperson for the law school, confirmed the conversations around Barr’s degree. The office of the law school’s interim dean, Christopher A Bracey, declined to comment. However, in a letter to students, Bracey wrote: “We cannot turn a blind eye to what is happening within our country, its impact upon our community members, or its connection to the multi-generational arc of justice that shaped our nation’s history. We must take this moment to engage – if not in protest, then in solidarity with the notion that we must preserve and protect the right to protest as an essential constitutional right that dates back to the founding of our nation.”Barr took credit for the decision on Monday night to have a variety of law enforcement officials forcibly move protesters who had gathered near the White House to protest the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police and systemic racism in the criminal justice system writ large. The result was a chaotic scene, in which chemical irritants and flash-bang grenades were launched into the crowd and police used bicycles and horseback to push back protesters. Later in the night, military helicopters were flown low over the remaining protesters as another means of dispersing them. Bill Barr Takes Charge of Trump’s Crackdown as the Military Tries to Back AwayBarr, who stood outside the White House surveying the scene right before police moved in on the crowd, has defended his order. On Thursday, he told reporters that he had wanted to extend the security perimeter one more block around the White House and that the protesters had grown “unruly” and had been asked “three times” to move back. But the preponderance of evidence—from real time video, to on-the-ground-reporting, to contemporaneous recollections from the protesters themselves—shows a peaceful crowd, there before the city-wide curfew began, being subjected to physical harm for the purposes of clearing a path for President Donald Trump to have a photo op at a nearby church. Since that photo op, several prominent political figures and retired military officials have condemned the administration for resorting to proto-military state posture in order to trample on constitutionally-protected rights to assemble. Among some members of the faculty at George Washington Law School, the anger was particularly acute owing to Barr’s ties to the institution. Barr received his JD from the school in 1977 and was awarded an honorary degree in Doctor of Laws in 1992, during his first stint as Attorney General. Additionally, there is a “William P. Barr Dean’s Suite” at the school that, according to the alumni magazine, “welcomes students and visitors into” one of its buildings on 20th street in Northwest Washington D.C.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

U.S. to revise Chinese passenger airline ban after Beijing move »
4 Jun 2020, 17:50

U.S. to revise Chinese passenger airline ban after Beijing moveThe U.S. Transportation Department plans to issue a revised order in the coming days that is likely to allow some Chinese passenger airline flights to continue, government and airline officials said. On Thursday, China said it would ease coronavirus restrictions to allow in more foreign carriers, shortly after Washington said it planned to bar Chinese passenger airlines from flying to the United States by June 16 due to Beijing's curbs on U.S. carriers. The change should allow U.S. carriers to resume once-a-week flights into a city of their choice starting on June 8, but that would be still significantly fewer than what the U.S. government says its aviation agreement with China allows.

German police say Madeleine McCann is dead »

German police say Madeleine McCann is dead

Madeleine McCann, the British girl who disappeared in Portugal in 2007 aged just three, is dead, a German prosecutor said Thursday (June 4).

He identified an imprisoned German child abuser as the prime murder suspect.

McCann vanished from her bedroom during a family holiday in the Algarve. Her parents were dining with friends nearby in the resort of Praia da Luz.

Her disappearance sparked an international search, with many false leads and claimed sightings of the girl over the 13-year hunt.

This appears to be the most significant breakthrough yet.

The suspect, who wasn't named, is German, 43 years old, and lived near Praia da Luz at the time. He burgled hotels and holiday flats and dealt drugs, police said.

They believe he made a spontaneous decision to kill the little girl during a break-in of the holiday apartment.

This was prosecutor Hans Christian Wolters:

(SOUNDBITE) (German) BRAUNSCHWEIG STATE PROSECUTOR, HANS CHRISTIAN WOLTERS, SAYING:

"The accused has multiple previous convictions of sexual crimes. He had already been sentenced for sexual abuse of children. He is currently serving a longer prison sentence for other offences. Between 1995 and 2007 the accused regularly lived on the Algarve, among other places for some years in a house located between Lagos and Praia da Luz."

German police said they'd worked out how McCann was murdered, though no body has been found.

British police are still calling it a missing person inquiry.

Madeleine's parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, said in a statement they'd never give up on finding their daughter alive.

But whatever the outcome, quote, "we need to know, as we need to find peace."

Auschwitz Museum and Memorial appeals for emergency funding »
4 Jun 2020, 14:06

Auschwitz Museum and Memorial appeals for emergency fundingThe Auschwitz Museum and Memorial in Poland has launched an emergency appeal for funding, saying it faces an "unprecedented situation" owing to the effects of the pandemic lockdown. The museum cares for, and runs educational programmes on, Auschwitz-Birkenau, the Nazi camp that claimed the lives of over a million people during its time as the epicentre of the Holocaust. But it has seen visitor numbers reduced to close to zero after it shut its doors on March 12 as much of Poland locked down to control the pandemic, depriving it of its primary source of funding. Last year 2,320,000 people visited the camp. “Over the last few months, we have found ourselves in an unprecedented situation,” the museum said in a statement. “The budget planned for 2020 has collapsed. Nearly all substantive operations of the Museum have been limited. We have also reduced all investments to the necessary minimum.


On WWI treaty's centenary, Hungary says its 'curse' must go »

On WWI treaty's centenary, Hungary says its 'curse' must goHungary's president on Thursday stressed the need for mutual respect between Hungary and neighboring countries where some 2 million ethnic Hungarians live following a post-World War I peace treaty signed exactly 100 years ago. At the same time, Janos Ader spoke of Hungarians' “right” to keep unaltered their “spiritual borders,” despite the changes on the real map, and stressed the need to “rectify" the damage from the treaty. Hungary was on the losing side in the war and was stripped of over two-thirds of its territory, populated by some 3.3 million ethnic Hungarians, after the June 4, 1920, Treaty of Trianon — signed in the Grand Trianon Palace in Versailles, France.

President Donald Trump announced Friday that the US will revoke special trading privileges granted to Hong Kong, after Beijing moved to tighten its grip on the semi-autonomous city with plans to impose a national security law. Removing the special status would affect a bilateral extradition treaty, commercial relations and export controls between the US and the Asian financial hub.

New York police take seconds to restore reputation for brutality »
4 Jun 2020, 9:00

New York police take seconds to restore reputation for brutalityDriving vehicles into protesters demanding justice for George Floyd earned the backing of the mayor, but of few others * George Floyd killing – latest US updates * See all our George Floyd coverageIt doesn’t take long to blow up a reputation. In the case of the New York police department, an institution with an already troubled history, the clip lasted all of 27 seconds.It showed an NYPD vehicle in Brooklyn lined up against a metal barricade behind which protesters were chanting during Saturday’s demonstrations over the police killing of George Floyd. Projectiles were thrown on to the roof of the car, then suddenly a second police SUV drew up alongside and instead of stopping continued to plough straight into the crowd.Seconds later the first vehicle lurched forward, knocking the barrier over and with it propelling several protesters to the ground amid a harrowing chorus of shrieking.A 27-second video, now viewed more than 30m times, had quickly shredded years of effort to repair the deeply tarnished image of the NYPD. New York’s “finest” were firmly cast in a role normally reserved for the security corps of petty dictators.The shocking video was compounded hours later when the mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, spoke about the incident. A politician who won election in 2013 largely on a promise to reform the NYPD and scrap its racially discriminatory stop-and-frisk policy, astounded even his closest supporters when he defended the police.De Blasio said: “I do believe the NYPD has acted appropriately.”Social media lit up. Was it appropriate to drive those two SUVs into the crowd? Was it appropriate for an NYPD officer forcibly to remove the coronavirus mask of a black protester whose arms were raised in the air, then pepper-spray his face?Was it appropriate for another officer to tell a protester to get off the street, then physically shove her several feet towards the curb where she landed on her head? Or that the police officers involved in the pepper spray incident had covered their badge numbers, presumably to avoid having to answer for their actions. Or to beat a nurse walking home from a shift at a hospital?The clashes between New York’s police and its protesters have reverberated around the city. The largest police force in the US, with its $5.6bn annual budget and 36,000 uniformed officers under the leadership of one of the most progressive mayors in the country, has responded to demonstrations about police brutality with more police brutality.The Black, Latino and Asian Caucus of the city council, which makes up more than half of the legislative body, was swift and devastating in its criticism. In a statement, it said that the NYPD had acted “with aggression towards New Yorkers who vigorously and vociferously but nonetheless peacefully advocated for justice”.Adrienne Adams, co-chair of the caucus, told the Guardian the NYPD had tried to suppress legitimate anger felt by African American and other minority communities following years of police abuse. “We cannot allow people who have kept people of color down for decades to say now that we don’t have the right to display our outrage,” she said.Though that sentiment applies nationwide, Adams believes New York stands out as having a “horrible history of police brutality”. It was the NYPD that set the tone, she said, when Daniel Pantaleo, the officer implicated in the 2014 death by chokehold of Eric Garner in Staten Island, avoided prosecution.“When nothing happened to the police officers who were responsible for the death of Eric Garner, New York set the blueprint for what happened to George Floyd,” she said. “There’s no penalty, no consequence, so it’s OK.”Adams’s framing of the Garner killing could equally be applied to a long string of notorious episodes of police misconduct that preceded it. In 1997, Haitian immigrant Abner Louima was handcuffed by an NYPD officer and sexually assaulted with a broken broomstick.Two years later, Amadou Diallo was shot near his home in a hail of 41 bullets after officers mistook his wallet for a gun. In an echo of that event, an unarmed Sean Bell was shot 50 times in Queens on the morning of his wedding in 2006 – it took six years for the NYPD detective who opened the fusillade to be chucked off the force while nobody has ever been convicted of any crime.In the policing of protest, the NYPD also has a contentious track record. In 2004 it rounded up more than 1,800 peaceful protesters rallying outside the Republican National Convention during the re-election bid of George W Bush and herded them into overcrowded pens on Pier 57 in Manhattan. In 2011 it was similarly criticized for heavy-handed tactics during the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations.Cutting across all this, the force has consistently targeted its efforts on neighborhoods of the city with majority black or Latino populations, straying at times into overt racial profiling. Though stop and frisk has been reined back in recent years, the NYPD continues to heavily and disproportionately police those communities despite a historically low homicide rate.Despite this long legacy of overreach, the force continues to be systemically resistant to public oversight. Under Section 50-A of New York state law, the disciplinary files of police officers are largely held in secret, making the task of holding them accountable almost impossible.Jennvine Wong, a staff attorney at the Cop Accountability Project (CAP) within the Legal Aid Society, told the Guardian that there were currently more than 200 police officers still being employed by the NYPD on full pay who should have been considered for termination following reports of misconduct.Data collected by CAP shows that where cases of misconduct arise they often involve escalation of low-level encounters into aggressive confrontations – something officers are supposed to be trained not to do. The project is currently litigating the case of Tomas Medina who was put in a chokehold and Tasered in 2018 after police were called to a complaint about loud music being played.Eric Garner’s fatal arrest was triggered by him allegedly selling single cigarettes.Although the use of chokeholds has been banned in New York, the project has found that between 2015 and 2018 the city settled 30 lawsuits involving NYPD use of the potentially lethal maneuver.Wong believes such endemic deployment of excessive force has spilled over into the NYPD’s handling of the George Floyd protests. She was present at a peaceful protest in Brooklyn that suddenly turned volatile not because of the behavior of protesters but by a sudden change of tack on the part of the police.“In a split second, the NYPD snapped and engaged in over-aggressive enforcement. They escalated it from 0 to 10 out of nowhere, arresting people and wielding their batons.”If there has been unrestrained use of batons in the city, it would be with the full approval of Ed Mullins, the provocative president of one of the main police unions, the Sergeants Benevolent Association (SBA). He wrote to members urging “each and every one of you to report for duty with your helmet and baton and do not hesitate to utilize that equipment in securing your personal safety”.The sister Police Benevolent Association of New York City has also spoken to its members in inflammatory terms about them being “under attack by violent, organized terrorists while New York City council and other politicians sit at home demanding we ‘de-escalate’”.There is no denying that the NYPD faces difficult challenges in the policing of mass protests, especially late at night when violent outbreaks have erupted as they did on Monday in Manhattan and the Bronx. Fires were started in the street and stores looted.For Eugene O’Donnell, a former NYPD officer and prosecutor in Brooklyn and Queens who is now a professor of police studies at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, Monday night’s spectacle of looting along Fifth Avenue amounted to a collapse of policing in the city.“This weekend, the job of police officer in New York became officially impossible when the police abolitionists won. They have created a model of zero tolerance towards force being used and any injuries being inflicted, and that’s absurd.”O’Donnell said the same pattern is repeating itself across America. “In city after city, the police were abolished this weekend. They stood back and watched as damage was inflicted that was irreversible.”

NYPD Says Looters Are Stashing Bricks. Brooklyn Locals Say Otherwise »
3 Jun 2020, 20:57

NYPD Says Looters Are Stashing Bricks. Brooklyn Locals Say OtherwiseOn Wednesday morning, New York Police Department Commissioner Dermot F. Shea tweeted a low-resolution video of an unidentified officer picking up blue plastic crates on a city street corner. The crates, which appeared to be filled with chunks of masonry, had apparently been left next to a garbage can near Avenue X and West 3rd Street in Gravesend, a neighborhood by the water on Brooklyn’s south end that’s been largely untouched by the protests elsewhere in the borough and the city."This is what our cops are up against: Organized looters, strategically placing caches of bricks & rocks at locations throughout NYC," Shea wrote. On Wednesday afternoon, the White House included that clip in a video compilation of footage it claimed showed “Antifa and professional anarchists... invading our communities.”But Shea didn’t explain why organized looters would have left bricks in a quiet, mostly residential Brooklyn neighborhood, and conversations with people who work and live in the area suggest the NYPD’s Twitter bulletin threatened to stoke tensions for no reason.Cops Reclaim New York in Massive Show of ForceAn officer in Sector B of the 61st Precinct, which covers Gravesend, said he could not explain or discuss the details of the brick discoveries. NYPD coordinators for the neighborhood did not respond to requests for comment. A detective at the Office of the NYPD Deputy Commissioner, Public Information said he did not know anything about the incident. “The city is going through an unprecedented issue with looting and protesting,” he told The Daily Beast. “The normal people who would answer your questions are out trying to protect the city. So that’s why you’re not getting answers to your questions.”In the week of protests since the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police, cops and politicians alike have been quick to point to “organized looters” and “outside agitators” fomenting unrest. But the claims often come with little evidence, and seem to buckle under scrutiny. Last week, after NYPD vehicles were filmed driving into a crowd of protestors, Mayor Bill De Blasio claimed that “a small set of men… came to do violence in a systematic organized fashion.” And there have been reports of protesters throwing bricks at police in New York. But New York City Council Member Mark Treyger, who represents the Gravesend area, disagreed with the idea that external troublemakers were making mischief in his turf. In a phone call with The Daily Beast, Treyger said he became aware of the discovery of containers of suspect materials at two locations in his district when a constituent messaged him over social media, and that he confirmed the finding with the 61st Precinct. However, Treyger said that the NYPD acknowledged to him the containers might simply contain construction debris. The councilman said that he had not seen protests in the area or any signs of organized looting—and pointed out that at least one set of the containers were found near a construction site, suggesting that the bricks came from there. He called his conclusion “simple math.” "There is literally a construction site and construction fencing and signage. And they found five or six containers of what appears to me to be construction debris,” Treyger told The Daily Beast. “I believe that [Shea’s] tweet about my district is not responsible. Because he did not give the full set of facts and the full picture, especially when his own department says the discovery was still under investigation,” Treyger added, warning that such rumors could cause division in the racially diverse neighborhood. “The police commissioner needs to be very mindful with his words, because they could incite violence.”The commissioner’s claims about the crates in Gravesend were especially remarkable because they were nowhere near the locus of protests Tuesday, which is when five employees of local businesses told The Daily Beast the bins were removed.Employees at two businesses—Knapp Pizza II and New Fortune Wine & Spirit—on the block in question told The Daily Beast police had removed the crates on Tuesday morning. Meanwhile, Tuesday’s protests in Brooklyn were centered closer to the Barclays Center, nearly five miles away. A woman who asked to be identified only as Sabrina R. said that the medical offices next to the apparent site of the bins did have security cameras, but that they were blocked from a view of the corner. An employee at nearby New Fortune Wine & Spirit said they had heard about the bricks, but had seen no protest. She said that while the store was outfitted with security cameras, that they belonged to the landlord, who could not be reached by press time.Violent Social-Distancing Arrest Videos Go Viral, Putting NYPD on DefensiveAt Smart Choice Pharmacy, which sits across from the site where the crates appeared to be collected, a staff member told The Daily Beast the street has been very quiet. “We haven’t seen anything like that,” she said. “It was very quiet yesterday. We didn’t see anything like that… There was no protest in Gravesend last night.” An employee at the Dunkin Donuts across the intersection from the site in question told The Daily Beast they had not noticed the bricks at all. An NYPD spokeswoman told the Daily Beast no complaint report had been filed about the containers. “No one called it in to complain,” she said. “It wasn’t taken as a complaint report… Because it’s not a crime. [The crates were] just left there.”In a media availability Wednesday morning, Commissioner Shea discussed the issue with Mayor De Blasio. “So in terms of the tweet today, unfortunately it’s not an isolated incident,” Shea said. “That was two locations, one was in Brooklyn, one was in Queens, where pre-staged bricks are being placed and then transported to quote unquote peaceful protests—which are peaceful protests—but then used by that criminal group within to sow fear.” Shea did not provide any details on the incident in Queens or specify how NYPD had come to the conclusion that the debris containers were associated with protests, given that no major protests had been reported in that area. He did concede that they might have come from construction sites. “We’ve had construction sites burglarized in recent days in Manhattan,” Shea said. “It’s interesting. Construction site burglary is not that uncommon, but during a riot it’s interesting what was taken—bricks.” Shea also mentioned a pattern of protestors throwing water bottles filled with cement at police officers, but did not provide specific instances of when such incidents had occurred, or evidence that any of those had been  “an orchestrated attack.” “I do believe that the police commissioner needs to be clear in his messaging that this debris was found near a construction site,” Council Member Treyger said. “And as of this afternoon, I have not heard of organized looting in my district.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Trump tried to vote with wrong address while railing against voter fraud »

Trump tried to vote with wrong address while railing against voter fraudRecords reviewed by the Post found the president had to resubmit his application, despite railing against the vote by mail processDonald Trump has been railing against vote by mail for the past few months – falsely citing the potential for voter fraud, which is extremely rare. As it turns out, the president himself bungled the system.Trump registered to vote in Florida last September under his White House address – 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, according to the Washington Post. But Florida does not allow people to register to vote without an in-state address, and one month later, Trump resubmitted his application with a Florida address and voted in the Republican primary.On his registration form, Trump told Florida officials his legal residence was in Washington DC but on another day also said he was a “bona fide resident” of Palm Beach, Florida, home to his Mar-a-Lago Club, according to the public records reviewed by the Post.Other voters have faced significant consequences for the same mistake. In fact, as some Democrats pointed out, the same issue is listed on White House website as voter fraud.> Beyond Trump's dangerous, dishonest claims of widespread voter fraud, it's really rich because the WH website uses the case of someone trying to vote at their second home as an example of voter fraud! https://t.co/syhg4fsehh pic.twitter.com/pEIyXy89Ck> > — American Bridge (@American_Bridge) June 3, 2020A city manager in Florida paid $5,000 in fines for putting the wrong address on her registration, as did a restaurateur in Palm Beach county. Florida Republicans also challenged state Democrats in 2018 in a vote-by-mail investigation, but the state found there was no fraud. Florida also tossed out thousands of mail-in ballots for supposedly having signatures that did not match original registration forms.Meanwhile, Democrats and some Republicans have called on states to ease vote-by-mail restrictions amid the pandemic. Tuesday’s primary election showed people waiting in line for hours in cities such as Washington DC, some of whom had not received absentee ballots in time.If this happens in November, election officials fear the public could be at risk for contracting Covid-19, as some did in Florida and Wisconsin during elections earlier this year.

Rod Rosenstein Says He Would Not Have Signed FISA Warrant for Page if He Knew Evidence Was Faulty »
3 Jun 2020, 15:36

Rod Rosenstein Says He Would Not Have Signed FISA Warrant for Page if He Knew Evidence Was FaultyFormer Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein testified to Congress on Wednesday that he would not have signed off on a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant renewal to spy on former Trump campaign associate Carter Page had he been aware then of the unreliability of the underlying evidence."If you knew then what you know now, would you have signed the application?" Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham asked Rosenstein during his testimony."No, I would not," Rosenstein replied.In December, the Justice Department’s inspector general concluded in a report that the FBI omitted crucial details in its requests for warrants to surveil Page, saying the agency neglected to inform the FISA court that the controversial Steele dossier, cited in applications to spy on Page, was unreliable.The dossier was compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele who was investigating Donald Trump for an opposition research firm hired by the Hillary Clinton campaign. The dossier purported to show connections between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.However, the inspector general did not say the FISA court should have declined to grant the warrants and nevertheless concluded that political bias did not compromise the FBI’s handling of the Russia investigation.Rosenstein defended his approval of the warrants, however, saying that “every application I approved appeared to be justified based on the facts it alleged,” and blamed the FBI, which he said “was supposed to be following protocols to ensure that every fact was verified” but failed to do so.The former deputy attorney general also defended his appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel for the Russia investigation.“I decided that appointing a Special Counsel was the best way to complete the investigation appropriately and promote public confidence in its conclusions,” Rosenstein said. “I asked the Special Counsel to review each criminal allegation the FBI considered relevant to Russian election influence operations and recommended whether to close the matter; investigate because it might be relevant to Russian election meddling; or refer the matter to another prosecutor.”

ZoomInfo Poised to Raise $935 Million in U.S. IPO »
4 Jun 2020, 23:08

ZoomInfo Poised to Raise $935 Million in U.S. IPO(Bloomberg) -- ZoomInfo Technologies Inc., the business-intelligence platform, scored the biggest initial gain in a U.S. trading debut in the past decade for a company of its size or larger, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.Vancouver, Washington-based ZoomInfo, after raising $935 million in an initial public offering priced above a targeted range, doubled its IPO price at the opening bell on Thursday. Its shares closed up 62% to $34, giving the company a value of $13 billion.ZoomInfo’s debut marks the return of technology IPOs as well as their iconic first-day pop. It’s gain at the closing is the fifth-best trading debut in the U.S. this year, after Inari Medical Inc. and other health-care companies, the data show.It’s the first technology listing in the U.S. since Chinese cloud service provider Kingsoft Cloud Holdings Ltd.’s IPO in April. Several companies that were planning to go public this year, such as Airbnb Inc. and Procore Technologies Inc., have turned to private funding instead in the face of economic uncertainties.IPO RevivalThe listing is also part of a global IPO surge that could raise a total of more than $6 billion this week, the data shows. Warner Music Group Inc. shares jumped as much as 23% in its trading debut Wednesday after a $1.93 billion offering, the largest IPO in the U.S. this year.ZoomInfo’s debut performance might have benefited from confusion related to Zoom Video Communications Inc., whose 224% stock rally this year has been partly fulled by the popularity of its video conferencing service. Shares of a third and also unrelated company, Zoom Technologies Inc., rose with Zoom Video’s IPO last year and again in March when Zoom Video’s shares jumped as use of its conferencing soared during the coronavirus pandemic.ZoomInfo, which conducted its roadshow with prospective investors virtually, sold 44.5 million shares for $21 each. It had marketed them for $19 to $20 each, a range that had been increased from $16 to $18.“Companies are looking for ways to digitalized their sale effort,” ZoomInfo Chief Executive Officer Henry Schuck said in a Bloomberg TV interview. “We spent the last year meeting with investors all over the country, getting them comfortable with our business.”IPO ParadeElectric truck maker Nikola Corp., which combined with blank-check firm VectoIQ Acquisition Corp., also began trading on Thursday.Three IPOs scheduled to price Thursday in the U.S. could raise a combined total of more than $960 million. Those companies are Chinese e-commerce firm Dada Nexus Ltd., Allentown, Pennsylvania-based Shift4 Payments Inc. and cancer treatment developer Legend Biotech Corp. On Friday, Chinese internet giant NetEase Inc. is planning to price a $2.8 billion second listing in Hong Kong, terms obtained by Bloomberg show.The offering by ZoomInfo was led by JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Morgan Stanley. The shares are trading on the Nasdaq Global Select Market under the symbol ZI.(Update with closing price in second paragraph)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

Massachusetts directs agency to study phase-out of natural gasIf the state's Department of Public Utilities opens the investigation, Massachusetts would become the third state to launch a formal process to phase out natural gas, the office of Attorney General Maura Healey said in a statement. California and New York are also studying a transition away from relying on natural gas for heating buildings and cooking in favor of electrified systems powered by renewable sources. In a petition filed with the DPU, Healey's office said Massachusetts would have to make large cuts in its use of fossil fuels to meet the state's goal of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 and that the decline would require natural gas distribution companies to make substantial changes to their business models.

Less Than One Year Post Launch, AbbVie's Rinvoq Disrupts the Rheumatoid Arthritis Treatment Landscape, While a Rich Pipeline Waits in the Wings »

Less Than One Year Post Launch, AbbVie's Rinvoq Disrupts the Rheumatoid Arthritis Treatment Landscape, While a Rich Pipeline Waits in the WingsThe latest quarterly report included in Spherix's RealTime Dynamix: Rheumatoid Arthritis (US) service captures the responses of 105 rheumatologists surveyed in May 2020 and highlights the shifting dynamics of the rheumatoid arthritis (RA) treatment landscape, driven largely by the recent approval of AbbVie's JAK inhibitor, Rinvoq, as well as the present impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on rheumatology practices. According to the survey results that are trended back to 2016, the RA treatment landscape continues to shift away from the legacy TNF inhibitors (i.e., AbbVie's Humira and Amgen's Enbrel) which have long been the gold standard, while alternate mechanism of action (MOA) agents have remained relatively stable in both user base and brand share – with the exception of the newest market entrant, Rinvoq.

Does the US Spend Too Much on Police? »
4 Jun 2020, 22:48

Does the US Spend Too Much on Police?The Washington Post’s Christopher Ingraham writes that, in the wake of protests over George Floyd’s death, tensions over funding differences for police departments and social services lie at the heart of many calls for police reform.New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer, for example, is calling for a $1.1 billion cut in NYPD spending over the next four years, with the money going “toward vulnerable communities most impacted by police violence and structural racism.” Similarly, the Los Angeles Police Department budget could be cut by $150 million to reinvest in communities of color, the L.A. Times reports.To illustrate the nationwide divergence between funding for law and order and that for cash welfare, Ingraham highlights a statistic, detailed in the chart below, pulled from the work of liberal Berkeley economists Emmanuel Saez and Gabriel Zucman: The United States spends more than twice as much on police, prisons and the courts as it does on food stamps, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families and supplemental Social Security.That wasn’t always case, Ingraham explains:“Up until about 1980, American governments spent roughly the same amount on criminal justice and cash welfare: a little over 1 percent of total national income for each. But those trend lines have steadily diverged ever since: Welfare spending has been on a long, uneven decline, while law and order spending ballooned almost unabated until about 2010, when it amounted to nearly 2.5 percent of national income. Since then, law and order spending has fallen to a hair under 2 percent, while welfare spending stands at about 0.8 percent of national income. …“Taken together, the two lines trace a dramatic shift in national priorities. We funneled money away from poverty prevention to beef up our response to one of poverty’s biggest consequences: crime. We now treat the symptoms rather than the underlying disease.”The protests and debates now roiling the nation might change that balance, as they’ll likely color the budget choices made by cities, states and the federal government.Read the full story at The Washington Post.Like what you're reading?

Broadcom Suggests New iPhone Launch Will Be Delayed »
4 Jun 2020, 22:47

Broadcom Suggests New iPhone Launch Will Be Delayed(Bloomberg) -- Broadcom Inc., a major Apple Inc. supplier, suggested the latest iPhones will be launched later than usual this year.Hock Tan, chief executive officer of Broadcom, discussed a “major product cycle delay” at a “large North American mobile phone” customer, during an earnings conference call with analysts on Thursday.Tan often refers to Apple this way. This time, the executive said the delay will mean the bump in wireless revenue experienced by Broadcom will happen one quarter later than usual this year.“We are in,” Hock said, referring Broadcom components in the iPhone. “The question is timing.”“This year, we do not expect to see this uptick in revenue until our fourth fiscal quarter,” the CEO added. “So accordingly, we expect, our wireless revenue in Q3 will be down sequentially.”Apple is planning to release its next iPhone line multiple weeks later than usual, Bloomberg News previously reported. The company typically unveils its new iPhones in the second half of September, but has occasionally, like in the case of the iPhone X in 2017, launched major new models later in the year.The delay to the new iPhone release this year is due to the Covid-19 pandemic, which has slowed Apple engineer travel to China to finalize the devices and required employees to mostly work from home in the early months of 2020.Broadcom’s Tan also warned about “supply constraints and an expected substantial reset in wireless” when the company’s results came out on Thursday. With much of the world’s population confined to their homes, handset demand has dropped.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.


GOP Rethinks Opposition to Unemployment Benefits »
4 Jun 2020, 22:43

GOP Rethinks Opposition to Unemployment BenefitsThe $600 per week boost in unemployment benefits that Congress passed in March expires at the end of July, and Republicans have vowed not to renew them, saying they are too generous and encourage workers to stay at home. But as the severity of the unemployment situation for millions of Americans becomes increasingly clear – and likely to linger through the election – some GOP lawmakers reportedly are having second thoughts about what to do with the program.According to The Hill, a growing number of Republican senators are discussing an extension of the extra unemployment benefits past July, though at a lower level. A federally funded back-to-work bonus of $450 is also on the table, part of an effort to ensure that workers are encouraged to return to their jobs.The recent protests over police violence and racism are also playing a role in changing minds among Republicans, who are worried about maintaining their control of the Senate. “I don’t think we can ignore the fact that this civil unrest is happening against a backdrop of 20-plus percent unemployment,” said Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO).Whatever form the additional aid takes, it’s becoming clear to Republicans that Congress will have to provide help to the unemployed for some time beyond July, stretching perhaps to the end of the year. “I’m very open-minded about how to supplement unemployment benefits,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), one of the most outspoken critics of the $600 unemployment payments.  The Senate announced Wednesday that it will hold a hearing next week on how to address unemployment benefits in the next and perhaps final coronavirus relief bill.Like what you're reading?

Authors pull study flagging hydroxychloroquine risksThree of the four authors behind a study in The Lancet that raised safety fears over the use of a drug favored by President Donald Trump to treat COVID-19 withdrew their research Thursday, blaming a company that supplied the data. It was soon followed by the retraction of another coronavirus paper in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), which was not linked to hydroxychloroquine but used the same healthcare firm's patient records. The Lancet study claimed to have retrospectively analyzed some 96,000 patient records, finding that hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine, common anti-malarials, were ineffective against COVID-19 and even increased the risk of death.

Foreign Investors Misjudged In Betting Against Japanese Stocks »

Foreign Investors Misjudged In Betting Against Japanese Stocks(Bloomberg) -- Foreign investors that had bet against Japanese equities are now scrambling to cover their shorts, triggering a stellar rebound in the nation’s stocks.They sold more than $41 billion of Japanese stock futures in the first five months of the year, the most since at least 2015, according to data from Japan Exchange Group. Yet in the second half of May they turned net buyers, loading up about $7 billion.Foreigners, mainly from Europe, sold off stock futures in huge volumes in Japan -- a highly liquid market -- in the wake of the coronavirus to either hedge their positions or make speculative bets, according to Masanori Ikunaga, a fund manager at Sumitomo Mitsui DS Asset Management Co. The doomsday scenario those investors had expected didn’t pan out, thanks to stock buying by the Bank of Japan.“Foreigners are left with losses on their positions,” Ikunaga said. “They can’t help but hurry to buy and cover their positions at high prices.”Since the depths of the March selloff, Japan’s main two equity gauges have defied the heavy foreign selling, scoring returns that are among the best in Asia. The Topix has risen almost 30% from its recent low while the Nikkei 225 Stock Average has rebounded 37%, thanks to aggressive buying by the BOJ and domestic investors.While overseas traders rush to cover their bets, the sustainability of their recent buying “will have to do with whether economic indicators continue to improve or not,” said Kazuyuki Terao, Tokyo-based chief investment officer at Allianz Global. “Because the downdraft had been so steep, there is a good chance economic indicators will improve. As long as they do, the foreign buying may continue.”The last day to trade June futures contracts on the Nikkei 225 Stock Average is next Thursday. Ikunaga of Sumitomo Mitsui DS Asset expects the foreign buying to fade following their expiry.“This foreign buying was triggered under unusual market circumstances,” he said. “Caution will be needed for market participants once this buying runs its course.”For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
