Don't count on ever seeing Trump's 'Garden of American Heroes' »
6 Jul 2020, 18:49

Don't count on ever seeing Trump's 'Garden of American Heroes'Call me cynical, but I have a feeling the National Garden of American Heroes announced by President Trump on Friday will never get off — or into — the ground, even if he doesn’t put his son-in-law in charge of it. Establishing an official United States Hall of Fame will secure the reputations of Betsy Ross and Benjamin Franklin from the changing political winds, no less than the one in Cooperstown, N.Y., preserves for the ages the memories of Ted Williams and Roberto Clemente.

Amy Cooper Will Face Charges After Calling Cops on Black Birder in Central Park »
6 Jul 2020, 18:31

Amy Cooper Will Face Charges After Calling Cops on Black Birder in Central ParkAmy Cooper, the white woman who called the police in May and falsely accused a Black man of threatening her life after he asked her to leash her dog in Central Park, will face charges for the incident, prosecutors announced Monday. Cooper, 41, will be charged with filing a false report, a misdemeanor offense punishable by up to a year in jail, for making the May 25 complaint against Christian Cooper, the Manhattan District Attorney’s office said. The Memorial Day incident, captured in a now-infamous viral video, occurred the same day George Floyd was killed by Minneapolis police and has since spurred nationwide discussions about racial injustice and white privilege.“Today our office initiated a prosecution of Amy Cooper for falsely reporting an incident in the third degree,” Cyrus R. Vance, the Manhattan district attorney, said in a statement. “Our office will provide the public with additional information as the case proceeds. At this time I would like to encourage anyone who has been the target of false reporting to contact our office. We are strongly committed to holding perpetrators of this conduct accountable.”Authorities say on May 25, Cooper was walking with her dog through the Ramble in Central Park, a woodsy area of the New York City sanctuary where dogs must be leashed, when Christian Cooper, 57, approached her. Cooper, an avid bird watcher and public relations professional, asked the 41-year-old white woman to leash her dog—even offering her dog treats to lure him out of the vegetation—but she refused. The two individuals are not related. In the video taken by Christian Cooper, Amy Cooper gets increasingly upset by his request and states she is going to call the police and tell them, “There’s an African American man threatening my life.”“I’m in the Ramble, there is a man, African-American, he has a bicycle helmet and he is recording me and threatening me and my dog,” Amy Cooper is then heard yelling in the phone to the 911 operator while gripping her dog’s collar. Before hanging up the phone, she adds: “I am being threatened by a man in the Ramble, please send the cops immediately!”Before the video ends, Christian Cooper calmly thanks her when she finally puts her dog on a leash. His sister, Melody, later posted the video on social media, where it quickly went viral—igniting worldwide outrage over Amy Cooper’s white privilege. The day after the incident, Cooper was fired from her job as the head of insurance portfolio management at Franklin Templeton, with the company asserting that it does not “tolerate racism of any kind.” She also surrendered her dog, Henry, to the shelter he was adopted from, but Cooper has since been reunited with the cocker spaniel.In a public apology issued on May 26, Cooper tried to explain she “reacted emotionally and made false assumptions about his intentions when, in fact, I was the one who was acting inappropriately by not having my dog on a leash.” She added that when Chris Cooper began to offer her dog treats, he said, “You’re not going to like what I’m going to do next”—which made her feel “threatened.” “He had every right to request that I leash my dog in an area where it was required. I am well aware of the pain that misassumptions and insensitive statements about race cause and would never have imagined that I would be involved in the type of incident that occurred with Chris,” Cooper said in the statement. “I hope that a few mortifying seconds in a lifetime of forty years will not define me in his eyes and that he will accept my sincere apology.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Court overturns local lockdown on German slaughterhouse townA court in western Germany overturned an emergency lockdown imposed in the town of Guetersloh following a coronavirus outbreak in a slaughterhouse there, ruling that the restrictions were disproportionate. The ruling, after some 1,500 workers were infected, throws into doubt the system of quick lockdown responses and rapid track-and-trace on which Germany has been relying to move into the second phase of its fight against the pandemic. After the outbreak, the premier of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia brought in a week-long lockdown, imposing social distancing on the town of about 100,000 people and closing many cultural institutions to try to stop its spread.

‘We Should Listen to the Argument’ for Removing George Washington Statues, Says Senator Duckworth »
6 Jul 2020, 13:41

‘We Should Listen to the Argument’ for Removing George Washington Statues, Says Senator DuckworthSenator Tammy Duckworth (D., Ill.) said that “we should listen to the argument for removing George Washington statues” in an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union Sunday. Statues of slave-owning historical figures such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson have become the latest target of the nationwide racial reckoning sparked by the death of George Floyd in police custody this summer.When asked by CNN’s Dana Bash if she supported taking down monuments of leaders who were slave owners, as she has expressed support of changing military bases named after Confederate leaders, Duckworth instead initially took aim at President Trump’s Mount Rushmore speech on Friday.The senator, who the Washington Post reported Sunday is a serious contender in Joe Biden’s search for a running mate in the 2020 presidential election, called Trump’s priorities “all wrong.”“He should be talking about what we're going to do to overcome this pandemic,” she said. “What are we going to do to push Russia back? Instead, he had no time for that. He spent all his time talking about dead traitors.”After further pressing by CNN’s Bash, Duckworth said she thinks we should have a national dialogue over the historical monuments at some point and “listen to everybody.”“I think we should listen to the argument there, but remember that the president at Mount Rushmore was standing on ground that was stolen from Native Americans who had actually been given that land during a treaty,” she said.Trump has defended such monuments, and did so again in his speech Friday, saying, “By tearing down Washington and Jefferson, these radicals would tear down the very heritage for which men gave their lives to win the Civil War, they would erase the memory that inspired those soldiers to go to their deaths,” he said. “They would tear down the principles that propelled the abolition of slavery and ultimately around the world ending an evil institution that had plagued humanity for thousands and thousands of years.”


Up to nine in 10 infected nurses and doctors caught coronavirus in hospitals at peak of crisis »
6 Jul 2020, 12:33

Up to nine in 10 infected nurses and doctors caught coronavirus in hospitals at peak of crisisUp to 90 per cent of nurses and doctors who caught coronavirus during the height of the pandemic picked it up in hospitals, research suggests. Modelling by Public Health England (PHE) also suggests one in five patients who got the virus became infected on wards. Scientists have called for a war to be waged on Covid-19 transmission within hospitals, in the same way the NHS has previously successfully battled superbugs such as MRSA. They warned that a lack of physical distancing between staff – not just on wards, but also in canteens, offices, and corridors – could be fuelling the spread of the virus. A report by the Royal Society's Data Evaluation and Learning for Viral Epidemics (Delve) group, which provides advice to the Government’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage), examined a number of studies. Among them is modelling by PHE, dated May 20, which suggests that "approximately 20 per cent of infections in inpatients, and 89 per cent of infections in healthcare workers, were due to nosocomial [hospital-acquired] transmission".


European Commission refuses to apologise after accusations of meddling in Croatia's elections »
6 Jul 2020, 12:03

European Commission refuses to apologise after accusations of meddling in Croatia's electionsThe European Commission refused to apologise on Monday after its president appeared in a party political video for the ruling party before elections in Croatia. Ursula von der Leyen was accused of meddling in the national vote and of breaching expectations of neutrality after the video for the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ), which won Sunday’s election, was posted at the weekend. The commission’s chief spokesman said on Monday the video clip, which was filmed in the EU executive’s studios by its staff, was meant as a contribution “in her personal capacity”. He told reporters at the daily press briefing in Brussels that “mistakes” were made, including the use of a backdrop featuring the Commission headquarters and the EU flag, but refused to say sorry. “Mistakes were made and the important thing is to make sure that such mistakes are not repeated,” he said, after numerous questions over whether Mrs von der Leyen would apologise for the gaffe. The spokesman blamed the video’s Croatian producers for adding a title reading European Commission President to the clip of Mrs von der Leyen. He said Mrs von der Leyen thought it was “”good thing for European democracy” for commissioners to have “an active political life”, provided they respected their code of conduct. The commission president was reported to the European Ombudsman, which investigates maladministration in the EU institutions, after breaking the long-standing taboo. “She wishes to ensure that the appropriate procedures are in place to avoid such an unintentional error creeping in again in the future,” the spokesman said. Croatia’s HDZ, which must now try and form a coalition government, is a member of the centre-right pan-EU European People’s Party, which counts Mrs von der Leyen as a member. Other EPP politicians, such as the leaders of Austria, Latvia and Bulgaria and Ireland former prime minister Leo Varadkar, as well as Croatia’s EU Commissioner Dubravka Šuica,, appeared in the video. Angela Merkel, an ally of Mrs von der Leyen, did not.

Two French ex-spies on trial accused of espionage for China »
5 Jul 2020, 15:29

Two French ex-spies on trial accused of espionage for ChinaIn a case that could be from a spy thriller, two former French intelligence agents go on trial on Monday accused of having passed on secrets to a foreign power. While French officials have been at pains to avoid releasing details of the affair, the pair are accused of working for China, according to several media reports. Pierre-Marie H. and Henri M. will appear in a special court accused of "delivering information to a foreign power" and "damaging the fundamental interests of the nation". Both men worked for France's foreign intelligence service, the DGSE. They face 15 years in prison if convicted. Both men, now retired, were charged and detained in December 2017, although Pierre-Marie H. has since been released on bail. His wife, Laurence H., also faces trial, accused of "concealment of property derived from intelligence with a foreign power likely to harm the fundamental interests of the nation". The court that tries them will be made up exclusively of professional magistrates, and given the sensitive nature of the case, will probably be tried behind closed doors. When the story was finally revealed in May 2018, French officials described it as an "extremely serious" case. The then armed forces minister Florence Parly said that the two were suspected of having committed what could be described as "treasonous" acts that could have jeopardised national defence secrets. It was the DGSE itself that detected the leak and presented its findings to prosecutors, said the defence ministry. Officials have said little about the details of the case or even for which country they were allegedly working. According to several media reports however, the two men, colleagues at the DGSE in the 1990s, were working for China. In 1997, Henri M. was appointed as the DGSE's man in Beijing, where he was the second secretary at the embassy. He was recalled early in 1998 after having had an affair with the ambassador's Chinese interpreter. He retired a few years later and returned to China in 2003, where he married the former interpreter, setting up home on Hainan island in southern China. Pierre-Marie H., who had never been posted abroad, was arrested at Zurich airport carrying cash after having met a Chinese contact on an Indian Ocean island, according to media reports. Apart from the China connection, AFP has obtained no independent information linking the two men. While there have been a number of different theories put forward, both men appear to have been under surveillance for several months before being arrested. Journalist Franck Renaud covered the Henri M. affair in his book on the French diplomatic service, "Les Diplomates". During the 1990s, when Henri M. served in Beijing, tensions were running high between China and France, in the wake of China's 1989 Tiananmen Square crackdown and the 1991 sale of French frigates to Taiwan, he said. "It's an affair that has caused more than a few problems to the DGSE," which had to repatriate operatives in China at the time, Renaud told AFP. The verdict is due to be handed down on July 10.

China's state television channel severely violated British broadcasting rules »
5 Jul 2020, 12:53

China's state television channel severely violated British broadcasting rulesBritain's television watchdog is expected to announce on Monday that China's state television channel severely violated British broadcasting rules by airing a forced confession of a UK citizen, the Telegraph understands. China’s state broadcaster, which airs in English in the UK as CGTN, is likely to face sanctions, decided in a separate process by Ofcom, which could include hefty fines or being stripped of its broadcast license as a result of the investigation launched May 2019. The ruling could escalate diplomatic tensions between the UK and China at a time when MPs have become more vocal in pressing for a re-think of bilateral relations. The original complaint to Ofcom, filed by Briton Peter Humphrey, focused on a confession forced under duress from him by Chinese authorities in 2013. Mr Humphrey told the Telegraph in an interview last year that he was drugged and handcuffed to an iron chair inside a steel cage. Six uniformed police officers sat at a podium while the lead interrogator read questions from a clipboard and instructed Mr Humphrey how to answer, he said. A heavily edited version made to look like a news ‘interview’ with a bombshell ‘confession’ was broadcast around the world on CGTN, and other channels under parent Chinese state media organisation, CCTV – including in the UK. “They twisted things,” Mr Humphrey previously told the Telegraph. “It was terrifying; all along, I knew I was innocent and that I was being falsely accused. I also knew that I had no way to escape.”

U.S. Stocks Rally; Dollar Drops to One-Month Low: Markets Wrap(Bloomberg) -- U.S. stocks jumped, with tech shares pushing the Nasdaq Composite to a record high. The dollar fell for a fifth day and Treasuries dipped.The S&P 500 Index headed toward its fifth-straight increase as Amazon.com Inc. shares reached $3,000 for the first time and Tesla Inc. extended a five-day rally to almost 40%. The dollar slid to the weakest since June 10 as risk-on sentiment sapped demand for havens and drove equities higher.The Stoxx Europe 600 Index climbed 1.6% while developing-nation stocks added 2.5% as a huge rally in Chinese markets pushed a global equity benchmark toward a one-month high.Stock markets started the week in an upbeat mood after a front-page editorial in China’s Securities Times on Monday said that fostering a “healthy” bull market after the pandemic is now more important to the economy than ever. The Shanghai Composite Index posted its biggest advance since 2015, fueling bullish spirits around the world, even as investors kept a wary eye on the coronavirus infections sweeping across parts of the U.S.China Stokes a Stock-Market Mania, Risking Repeat of 2015 Bubble“Investors have recognized that as bad as the economy in the U.S. is, it’s not as bad as what people thought it would look like in March and April,” said Nancy Prial, the co-chief executive officer at Essex Investment Management. “The market has started to sense we might see better than anticipated results fairly broadly across a wide spread of companies.”The MSCI World Index is now at the highest level since early June, with investors putting their faith in an economic recovery powered by historic government stimulus.But of course there’s a long way to go before the economy gets back to normal. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. cut estimates for U.S. growth this quarter and said consumer spending appears likely to stall this month and next.

Trump Administration to Renew Attempt to End DACA This Week: Report »
6 Jul 2020, 19:16

Trump Administration to Renew Attempt to End DACA This Week: ReportThe Trump administration will re-up its attempt to end President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program this week after the Supreme Court blocked its latest effort last month, multiple sources told The Hill.One source who briefed The Hill on the latest developments said the White House had initially slated the renewed effort for last week, but pushed it back to this week. Speaking to Fox & Friends on Monday morning, White House chief of staff Mark Meadows signaled action was coming, saying “starting this week, you’ll see executive orders, you’ll see business that actually goes forward from the Oval Office when Congress doesn’t act.”In June, the Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision that the Trump administration’s attempt to end DACA violated the Administrative Procedure Act’s “arbitrary and capricious” standard and could not move forward. In response, President Trump said “nothing was lost or won” in the decision, adding that the court had “punted.”The program, which was instituted by President Obama in 2012, affects approximately 700,000 illegal aliens brought to the United States as children. Through DACA, participants can apply for renewable deportation deferrals and receive work eligibility, but are not given a path to citizenship.Under President Trump, the Department of Homeland Security has filed multiple memoranda — first in 2017 under then-acting DHS secretary Elaine Duke, and a follow-up in 2018 by former DHS secretary Kirstjen Nielsen — seeking to end the program, arguing that it is unconstitutional and cannot be maintained.Trump has previously said that “a deal will be made” with Democrats over the status of DACA’s participants if his administration was successful in ending the program. Former vice president Joe Biden has been outspoken in his defense of DACA, calling its participants “more American than most Americans” during a campaign event in January.


Crude Slips in the U.S. With Bleak Summer Demand Outlook »
6 Jul 2020, 19:15

Crude Slips in the U.S. With Bleak Summer Demand Outlook(Bloomberg) -- U.S. crude futures edged lower with investors concerned that lackluster demand through the summer months will weigh on the market’s recovery.As coronavirus infections rise across much of the U.S., major fuel-consuming states including California, Florida, Arizona and Texas have reimposed stricter measures to curb the spread. Gasoline demand could fall by 17% in July from the same time last year if lockdowns are reintroduced, according to JBC Energy GmbH.Drivers across the U.S. normally hit the road for the Independence Day holiday -- usually a high point for gasoline demand during the summer -- but the virus kept more people indoors. Domestic gasoline consumption during the long weekend was more than 20% below last year’s levels, according to GasBuddy.“The coronavirus impacts in the country are causing folks to hunker back down again,” said John Kilduff, a partner at Again Capital LLC, a New York hedge fund focused on energy. “This could be a real problem for the market going forward.”While the U.S. benchmark crude has doubled in value since April to just above the $40-a-barrel mark, futures are having trouble rallying beyond that level amid uncertainty over re-openings across the country.In Florida, Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez is planning an emergency order to close restaurants and gyms. Florida reported 206,447 Covid-19 cases on Monday, up 3.2% from a day earlier. In Texas, a county official is calling for a stay-home order once again in the Houston area.In global markets, Brent crude showed strength with demand faring better. Saudi Aramco lifted pricing for all of its crudes to Asia by $1 a barrel. Aramco also raised pricing to the U.S., where it’s reining in shipments, for a fourth month.“Brent is strengthening because of the Saudi price increase this morning and because European economies are re-opening and handling the Covid problem better than in the U.S.,” said Bob Yawger, director of the futures division at Mizuho Securities USA.Traffic congestion data -- a rough measure of automobile activity -- remains mixed, with some cities growing steadily busier and others slipping back. Of 13 world cities examined, traffic is heaviest in Shanghai and lightest in Mumbai. Congestion in Los Angeles on July 2, just before the Independence Day holiday, was 82% lower than a year ago.But in a warning sign for oil’s resurgence, the higher prices from OPEC’s largest producer come in the context of a refining industry that’s struggling to turn a profit. A refiner using Saudi Arabia’s flagship Arab Light crude in Singapore would currently make a loss with the most basic processing, according to Oil Analytics data.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.

Dakota Access Oil Line to Be Shut by Court in Blow for Trump »
6 Jul 2020, 19:14

Dakota Access Oil Line to Be Shut by Court in Blow for Trump(Bloomberg Law) -- The Dakota Access pipeline must shut down by Aug. 5, a district court ruled Monday in a stunning defeat for the Trump administration and the oil industry.The decision, which shuts the pipeline during a court-ordered environmental review that’s expected to extend into 2021, is a momentous win for American Indian tribes that have opposed the Energy Transfer LP project for years. It comes just a day after Dominion Energy Inc. and Duke Energy Corp. scuttled another project, the Atlantic Coast natural gas pipeline, after years of legal delays.Environmentalists have increasingly used the courts to try to block additional investment in fossil fuel infrastructure while they push for a clean energy transition. Tribes, landowners, and other project opponents have also complained about local impacts from construction and potential spills on or near their land.The sophisticated legal onslaught has led to delays and disruptions for several other pipelines, including Keystone XL. But Monday’s court order, if upheld on appeal, marks the first time a major, in-service oil pipeline will be forced to shutter because of environmental concerns.Energy Transfer said it’s “immediately pursuing all available legal and administrative processes” to challenge the decision.‘Historic Day’The U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia said a crucial federal permit for Dakota Access fell too far short of National Environmental Policy Act requirements to allow the pipeline to continue operating while regulators conduct a broader analysis the court ordered in a previous decision.The ruling scraps a critical permit from the Army Corps of Engineers, and requires the pipeline to end its three-year run of delivering oil from North Dakota shale fields to an Illinois oil hub. Judge James E. Boasberg said Dakota Access must shut down the pipeline and empty it of oil by Aug. 5.“Today is a historic day for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and the many people who have supported us in the fight against the pipeline,” tribal Chairman Mike Faith said in a statement. “This pipeline should have never been built here. We told them that from the beginning.”Boasberg acknowledged that the ruling would cause major disruptions for Dakota Access and the North Dakota drillers that supply its oil.“Yet, given the seriousness of the Corps’ NEPA error, the impossibility of a simple fix, the fact that Dakota Access did assume much of its economic risk knowingly, and the potential harm each day the pipeline operates, the Court is forced to conclude that the flow of oil must cease,” he wrote, referring to the National Environmental Policy Act.Energy Transfer said it plans to immediately ask Boasberg to freeze the decision, and will head to the U.S. Court of Appeals if that request is denied.The company said it’s confident “that once the law and full record are fully considered Dakota Access Pipeline will not be shut down and that oil will continue to flow.”The Army Corps referred questions about the ruling to the Justice Department, which didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment, including on whether it intends to appeal the ruling. But Energy Secretary Dan Brouillette slammed the ruling, and said the Trump administration would continue promoting U.S. energy infrastructure.“It is disappointing that, once again, an energy infrastructure project that provides thousands of jobs and millions of dollars in economic revenue has been shut down by the well-funded environmental lobby, using our Nation’s court system to further their agenda,” he said in a statement.DisruptionsKatie Bays, co-founder of Washington-based Sandhill Strategy LLC, said the court ruling “is likely to be enormously disruptive.” The Army Corps’ 18-month timeline for addressing flaws in its environmental review makes Energy Transfer “vulnerable to a change in administration and a more draconian policy towards oil pipelines,” she said.ClearView Energy Partners analyst Christine Tezak said “there is a strong possibility that the new Biden Administration could decide to not reissue the authorizations now that the permits have been vacated.”The ruling will also fuel litigation against other projects, as it “just totally overturns that conventional wisdom” that courts will never force in-service pipelines to shut down, said Southern Methodist University law professor James W. Coleman.“There’s no legal rule that says you won’t shut down an existing pipeline but people felt like that was such a constant that they could count on it,” he said.Coleman assigned 50% odds to the prospect that the D.C. Circuit would stay the lower court’s decision. Some analysts speculated odds as low as 30%.The pro-pipeline GAIN Coalition argued that Monday’s decision jeopardizes energy security, and said it’s confident “common sense will prevail and this decision will be stayed or overturned.” The American Petroleum Institute called for permitting reform.“Our nation’s outdated and convoluted permitting rules are opening the door for a barrage of baseless, activist-led litigation, undermining American energy progress and denying local communities the environmental, employment and economic benefits modern pipelines provide,” the oil industry group said.Energy Transfer’s shares fell as much as 13.8% Monday for the biggest intraday drop since mid-March.Continental Resources Inc., the shale producer founded by Harold Hamm, another prominent Trump supporter, also fell on the decision, as did Hess Corp. Both companies have significant operations in the Bakken shale field, and a shutdown of Dakota Access will make it harder for them to pipe their crude out of the basin.Physical sweet crude prices in the U.S. rose slightly against oil futures on Monday, as the closing of the pipeline means less oil supply. However, prices for oil produced in North Dakota have come under pressure as the loss of the conduit would mean less interest from buyers.Years of OppositionBoasberg’s decision comes after four years of litigation from tribes opposed to Dakota Access’ route across Lake Oahe, a dammed section of the Missouri River just a half-mile from the Standing Rock Indian Reservation in the Dakotas.The Standing Rock Sioux, Cheyenne River Sioux, and others sued the Army Corps for approving the water crossing in 2016, saying it put tribal water supplies and cultural resources at risk.Their frustrations triggered an outpouring of support from fellow tribes, indigenous advocates, and environmentalists from across the country. Thousands of pipeline opponents camped out in North Dakota for months to show their opposition.The Obama administration responded by withholding a final permit and committing to a new consultation process, but President Donald Trump quickly put Dakota Access back on track after taking office in 2017.Kelcy Warren, the billionaire chief executive officer of Energy Transfer, has long been a Trump fan. He recently hosted a fundraiser for the president’s re-election campaign at his private Dallas home.“My God, this is going to be refreshing,” Warren told investors two days after Trump won the last election.Despite high-profile opposition to Dakota Access, including from celebrities and some of Warren’s favorite musicians, the Energy Transfer founder has stood by the project, going so far as to say he talks about Dakota Access “like I talk about my son” earlier this year.“I’m so proud of that project,” he said.Trouble in CourtBut the district court in Washington found flaws in the government’s pipeline approval process. Boasberg ordered the Army Corps to conduct additional environmental review in mid-2017, but allowed the pipeline to remain in service during that time.Earlier this year, the court again identified shortcomings in the Army Corps’ review, concluding that the agency didn’t fully consider expert disagreement over the risk of an oil spill in Lake Oahe. The Army Corps must do an in-depth environmental impact statement for Dakota Access, the judge said.Boasberg issued the opinion in March and ordered both sides to submit new briefs explaining whether the pipeline should shut down in light of the decision.The default consequence for an agency violation of the National Environmental Policy Act is invalidation of the permit at issue, but legal precedent allows courts to balance that outcome against other factors, including how disruptive nixing a permit would be, and how likely an agency is to support its original decision after additional analysis.The Army Corps has said it expects to finish the court-ordered analysis in mid-2021.The case is Standing Rock Sioux Tribe v.

Pilots Were Once in Short Supply. Now They're Losing Their Jobs. »
6 Jul 2020, 19:14

Pilots Were Once in Short Supply. Now They're Losing Their Jobs.Joshua Weinstein always wanted to be an airline pilot, but the industry was in crisis when he started college in 2002, so he became a middle school teacher instead.He loved that job, but after a decade of flying in his free time at a cost of tens of thousands of dollars, Weinstein began hearing more about a looming pilot shortage and left the classroom in 2018 to pursue his dream. It worked: In January, he started training to fly for ExpressJet, which operates regional flights for United Airlines. But the coronavirus pandemic, which devastated the airline business, could thin the ranks of pilots by the thousands and has already put the nascent careers of people like Weinstein on hold."The worst part right now is that the only thing we know is that nobody knows anything," he said. "There's uncertainty. We just don't know what happens next."For years, flight schools, airlines and experts encouraged people like Weinstein to become pilots. They promised young recruits a job that was lucrative and secure because thousands of pilots in their late 50s and early 60s would retire in the coming years and demand for travel would continue growing. The profession is still stacked with older aviators, but airlines are expected to make deep cuts in the coming months, and the pilots most at risk are those who are just starting out.While air travel has recovered somewhat, it is still only about one-fourth of what it was last year, according to airport security data. Most experts say the recovery will be slow and uneven because of a patchwork of travel bans and the unpredictable nature of the pandemic. The recent surge in coronavirus infections has already forced some governors to delay reopening their state economies and to shut down bars and other businesses. If cases continue to increase, as some public health experts fear, air travel could become a lot less appealing.To prepare for that uncertain future, the nation's largest airlines are stockpiling billions of dollars in cash. If ticket sales do not recover soon, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Southwest Airlines and United have said they could resort to job cuts as soon as Oct. 1, the first day when airlines are free to eliminate jobs and reduce hours under a stimulus law that Congress approved in March.Airlines could lay off, furlough or reduce the hours of tens of thousands of pilots, cuts that would disproportionately fall on those who have less union seniority and training. Major airlines have already stopped hiring pilots after posting hundreds of openings in the first quarter of the year, according to Future & Active Pilot Advisors, a consulting firm.Several companies are offering buyout packages to avoid deeper cuts later. Southwest has acknowledged in discussions with its pilots union that the airline is likely overstaffed by more than 1,000 pilots. The company is offering several years of partial pay and benefits to those who agree to leave the company temporarily or permanently. Delta warned last week that it could furlough nearly 2,600 pilots and is offering early-retirement packages.Some pilots said the turmoil was nerve-racking, but those who have been in the profession for a while have come to expect it."You kind of know going in that aviation has high highs and low lows," said Lisa Archibald, 41, a Delta pilot and volunteer with the airline's pilot union, the Delta Master Executive Council. "You do it because you love what you do."Like Weinstein, Archibald arrived at the job by way of a detour. After graduating from Purdue University's School of Aviation and Transportation Technology, she was hired to fly at American Eagle, which American Airlines owns. But the job started days before the 2001 terrorist attacks, and she was furloughed after just a few weeks.About a year later, Archibald found a job piloting corporate jets, which she did for 15 years. She joined Delta in May 2017.Unsurprisingly, pilots are passionate about the profession. That is why they spend years in grueling training programs, trying to rack up the minimum flight hours and credentials needed to become airline pilots, at a cost of up to $100,000, not including the price of a college degree.Weinstein, 36, estimates that he easily spent between $50,000 and $70,000 on flight training, offset by what he earned working at the flight school and teaching middle school in New Jersey over a decade. At ExpressJet, first-year pilots earn a minimum $36,000 a year.Many pilots borrow tens of thousands of dollars to pay for their training, loans that can take years to pay off. While veteran pilots at the big airlines can make as much as $300,000 a year, starting salaries at regional airlines can be as low as $30,000, according to Future & Active Pilot Advisors. Most pilots typically spend several years at a regional outfit before making it to a larger carrier.The median salary for the country's nearly 125,000 airline and commercial pilots is about $121,000, according to federal data.In recent years, airlines were so worried about finding enough pilots that they took steps to secure a steady supply of workers. United, for example, said in February that it was buying a flight school in Phoenix in anticipation of a need to hire more than 10,000 pilots by 2029.Boeing's chief executive said last year that the pilot shortage was "one of the biggest challenges" facing the industry. Global demand was growing so quickly that airlines would need to hire 645,0000 pilots over the next two decades to keep up, about 131,000 of them in North America, Boeing predicted.Historically, most airline pilots cut their teeth in the military, but the armed forces have increased the minimum years that pilots must serve, said Mike Wiggins, chair of the department of aeronautical science at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. As a result, for the past decade or so, most new airline pilots have been civilians.The shortage was long in the making, but has been delayed time and time again, first by the 2001 terrorist attacks, then by the Great Recession and the Federal Aviation Administration's decision to raise the mandatory pilot retirement age to 65 from 60. The pandemic will likely push it further down the road."A lot of those dynamics are still going to be there," Wiggins said. "Obviously, the growth is not there right now. But the retirements are still going to be there. Time marches on."Weinstein knows those dynamics well. He had wanted to become a pilot since he toured a cockpit when he was 6, but his timing always seemed off. He started college just after the Sept. 11 attacks and graduated just as the Great Recession took hold.He finally landed a piloting job this year, but was told in May that ExpressJet was pausing training for him and dozens of other new pilots. So Weinstein has returned to working at the flight school where he learned to become a pilot, offering virtual instruction and flying when he can.He and Archibald have been in touch with people in their former careers, waiting to see how the next few months shape up and how their employers sort out what and how many jobs will remain after the federal stimulus ends.Whatever the outcome, Weinstein said, all that effort has been worth it."I have something to show for it because I did make it to the airlines and I did get hired and I did achieve that dream," he said. "And so part of me says not to regret a single moment of it, because I put my mind to something and I did it."This article originally appeared in The New York Times.(C) 2020 The New York Times Company

"We believe that the question to be considered is not whether the stock is expensive on current valuation measures, but what the company’s growth and competitive position signal about the stock’s potential for the next several years," JMP Securities analyst Joseph Osha wrote in a client note, predicting that Tesla's annual sales could hit $100 billion by 2025. JPMorgan, which has an "underweight" rating on Tesla, raised its price target to $295 from $275, while Deutsche Bank upped its price target to $1,000 from $900.

JPMorgan, which has an "underweight" rating on Tesla, raised its price target to $295 from $275, while Deutsche Bank upped its price target to $1,000 from $900.

Firm Linked to Pelosi’s Husband Got Virus Loan, U.S. Data Show »
6 Jul 2020, 19:04

Firm Linked to Pelosi’s Husband Got Virus Loan, U.S. Data Show(Bloomberg) -- A company tied to the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi showed up among hundreds of thousands of recipients of loans from the $669 billion Paycheck Protection Program.Nancy Pelosi’s spokesman described Paul Pelosi as an investor in the firm, which turned up in loan-level disclosures for the program that were released Monday by the Treasury Department and Small Business Administration. In addition, three foundations associated with congressional caucuses turned up as loan recipients.EDI Associates is listed as a recipient of a loan between $350,000 and $1 million. The same company was listed in Nancy Pelosi’s latest House financial disclosure report filed in May 2019, for the year 2018. Paul Pelosi is a businessman and investor.“He’s an investor. So, he was not aware the loan was applied for,” said spokesman Drew Hammill of Pelosi’s husband, emphasizing also that he was a limited investor.EDI Associates is listed in Pelosi’s disclosure form as located in Sonoma, California. It’s identified as a limited partnership with an investment in the El Dorado Hotel. The value of the asset on the form -- identified as belonging to Pelosi’s spouse -- is listed as between $250,001 and $500,000.A number of other companies tied to federal lawmakers have surfaced in previous media reports as having accepted loans from the program, which is part of the $2 trillion CARES Act that Congress passed to counter economic damage from the coronavirus pandemic.Pelosi had previously been a major critic of what she cast as the Trump administration’s concealment of PPP loan data. Last month, after the administration agreed to release some loan-level details, she praised the decision.‘Overdue Step’“The Trump administration’s concealment of PPP loan data was a disturbing sign of its complete indifference to ensuring that Paycheck Protection Program funds go first and foremost to the most vulnerable small businesses on Main Street,” she said on June 20, in a release. “Its reversal is an overdue step toward securing the transparency needed to ensure struggling small businesses, particularly minority, women and veteran-owned businesses, are getting the vital assistance they need to survive and retain their workers.”Four other House members surfaced in previous reports about businesses that took Paycheck Protection Program loans. Republicans Roger Williams and Vicky Hartzler and Democrats Susie Lee and Debbie Mucarsel-Powell have ties to companies that are either run by their families or employ their spouses as a senior executives.The SBA issued a rule that would allow lawmakers to bypass a conflict-of-interest review process in applying for the small business loans, a move that critics have said creates the potential for self-dealing and abuse. Typically, members of Congress and some other government employees have to seek approval from the SBA’s Standards of Conduct Committee if they are seeking aid for a company where they or a “household member” are an owner, officer, director or shareholder with at least a 10% stake.Congressional DisclosureThere’s been some movement in Congress to require lawmakers to disclose PPP loans. Senator Joni Ernst, an Iowa Republican, introduced legislation last month that would require lawmakers and their family members to disclose if they got a loan.“The PPP has saved countless businesses and the jobs of millions of Americans, but those in Congress who are voting on it — or any issue — where a potential conflict of interest may exist need to be upfront about it,” Ernst said in a statement. “The only reason to oppose this bill is if you have something to hide.”The data released Monday also show that the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation and the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute each received PPP loans of between $350,000 and $1 million. Both are nonprofit nonpartisan public policy, research and educational arms of the member caucuses.Erica Southerland, a spokeswoman for the CBC Foundation, had no immediate comment; a spokeswoman for the CHC Institute did not immediately respond to a request for comment.A spokesman for a third group that’s listed as receiving a loan for between $350,000 and $1 million, the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.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.

Analyst Sounds the Valuation Alarm Bell on Inovio’s Hot Stock »
6 Jul 2020, 18:50

Analyst Sounds the Valuation Alarm Bell on Inovio’s Hot StockAnd just like that, the tides have turned for Inovio Pharmaceuticals (INO). Shares of the high-flying biotech dropped last week by 31%, the vast majority of which came after the release of interim data from the early stage trial of its COVID-19 vaccine candidate, INO-4800.You could chalk the dip up to a classic case of “buy the rumor, sell the news,” but this sell-off was slightly more nuanced, with the lack of a clear good/bad story leaving a lot to interpretation.The company said that after giving participants two doses of the vaccine, 94% "demonstrated overall immune responses." What probably concerned investors was the fact that finer immune response details were missing. Specifically, how many patients produced neutralizing antibodies that could prevent a COVID-19 infection. This looks bad when compared to Pfizer/BioNTech, as they published a richly detailed report of their candidate’s progress on the same day.The full data is expected to be published in a medical journal in the near future. Meanwhile, at investment firm Maxim, analyst Naureen Quibria believes the data was “positive.”The analyst said, “In truth, while we don’t know what 'good' immunogenicity data should be, studies suggest that both T cell and antibody immune responses will be important for protection in both mild and serious infections, particularly given that most convalescent plasmas obtained from individuals that have recovered from COVID-19 do not appear to contain high levels of neutralizing activity (e.g., one study, published in Nature). However, reports have also highlighted that the virus-specific T cells found in convalescent patients can control the severity of their COVID-19 disease. As such, the early data for INO-4800 appear to be promising, in our view.”However, the analyst can’t ignore Inovio’s lofty valuation, which, along with the murky data, played a part in the sell-off. Even after last week’s drop, shares are still up by 540% since the turn of the year. Therefore, for Quibria, “the success of INO-4800 is priced into the shares.”Accordingly, Quibria downgraded Inovio from Buy to Hold, and took the price target off the table. (To watch Quibria’s track record, click here)Other analysts appear to be reading from the same page. Based on 2 Buys, 5 Holds and 1 Sell, Inovio has a Hold consensus rating. There’s small upside of 3% in the cards, should the average price target of $22 be met over the next 12 months.

Uber Eats + Postmates Offers Amazon-Sized Opportunity »
6 Jul 2020, 18:43

Uber Eats + Postmates Offers Amazon-Sized Opportunity(Bloomberg Opinion) -- Uber Technologies Inc.’s deal to acquire Postmates Inc. isn’t just about the need for consolidation in the food-delivery industry. The company also has its eyes on a bigger prize: nabbing business from Amazon.com Inc. and Walmart Inc. in the local commerce market.Early Monday, and following reports of a deal last week, Uber announced it was buying Postmates for $2.65 billion in an all-stock transaction. A combined Uber Eats-Postmates would vault the company to second place in the U.S. food-delivery market with total share of about 30%, versus DoorDash’s 45% share, according to the latest Second Measure data. I previously wrote about how Uber should acquire Postmates, even though the option wasn’t as ideal as its failed merger with Grubhub, as it would still move the needle for the company by rationalizing the overly promotional industry environment and generating significant cost synergies. And in fact, Uber confirmed Monday that the merger would result in more than $200 million annualized savings after the first year, primarily through cuts in marketing and administrative expenses. Uber shares rose 6% following the acquisition news.But as important as the merger is in creating a bigger player with the chance of improving profitability and increasing scale, it also opens the door for an even more important longer-term opportunity to compete with big retailers for all categories in local commerce, Uber CEO CEO Dara Khosrowshahi  told investors on a call Monday. He explicitly called out Amazon and Walmart.Uber Eats has experimented with non-food deliveries. Earlier this year, the company expanded partnerships with supermarkets and local stores in a small number of markets to deliver groceries and certain essential items. But the merger will help to accelerate such efforts because of Postmates’ advanced technology platform, which offers better capabilities for batching orders together and increasing efficiencies. “The vision for us is to become an everyday service,” he said. Postmates is a “great step along that vision” of delivering anything to consumers homes within a couple hours.The Postmates’ website offers more clues on this future. The upstart already delivers groceries, alcohol and drug-store items in some markets, so for the combined company, grocery may be the best area of focus to start. But Postmates’ platform also can be used for other retail products such as home goods as well. Investors should take note of this, especially given Uber management’s clear message that the deal has much deeper ramifications beyond food delivery. As the pandemic is structurally boosting the trends towards all things digital, the deal may pay bigger dividends for Uber —  and make Postmates less of a consolation prize.This column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editorial board or Bloomberg LP and its owners.Tae Kim is a Bloomberg Opinion columnist covering technology.

Traders Dump $2.6 Billion in Junk-Bond ETFs Amid Virus Angst »
6 Jul 2020, 18:34

Traders Dump $2.6 Billion in Junk-Bond ETFs Amid Virus Angst(Bloomberg) -- The surge in coronavirus cases has bond ETF investors shedding their riskier holdings in favor of the safety of U.S. government debt.Over $2.6 billion exited from junk-bond exchange-traded funds last week, in addition to the $5.6 billion that fled from high-yield mutual funds. The $11 billion SPDR Bloomberg Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK)’s $746 million outflow led the way, followed by a $609 million withdrawal from the $27 billion iShares iBoxx High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG).On the other end of the risk spectrum, Treasury-focused funds were a clear beneficiary of the renewed haven demand. BlackRock Inc.’s $22 billion iShares 7-10 Year Treasury Bond ETF (IEF) posted a weekly inflow of over $2 billion -- the largest since January 2019 -- while the $4.2 billion SPDR Portfolio Intermediate Term Treasury ETF (SPTI) absorbed $1.8 billion.The rotation into higher-quality debt shows investors are taking a “pause for breath” as policy makers grapple with a balance between containing the spreading virus and resuming economic activity, according to Principal Global Investors. In addition to the U.S. resurgence, the pace of new infections in Tokyo, Iran and elsewhere is raising concerns about a fresh virus wave globally. “In that environment, many investors would prefer to be out of riskier assets and find more solace in investment grade and sovereign debt, and will wait for a good opportunity to rebuild their risk positions at a better price,” said Seema Shah, Principal’s chief strategist.Even as stocks rally, fixed-income investors are reassessing the outlook for the riskier parts of the bond markets amid the resurgence after the Federal Reserve sparked the asset class’s best returns in a decade. The central bank said in early April that it would begin buying high-yield ETFs to keep credit flowing, spurring billions in front-running flows.But now that the Fed is shifting its purchases from credit ETFs to individual corporate bonds, others think the junk-bond ETF outflows may be more mechanical. The Fed has less need to buy funds like JNK and HYG now, which means that the dealers facilitating those trades have less need to hold them, according to Mizuho International Plc.“To initially facilitate the Fed’s flow, dealers would have gone long ETF inventory,” said Peter Chatwell, Mizuho’s head of multi-asset strategy. “Then, when the Fed’s flow moved into single name bonds, it would have made more sense to hold bond inventory instead.”(Updates with virus news in fourth 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.
