Under-fire New York mayor booed at George Floyd vigilNew York's mayor was widely booed Thursday during a vigil for George Floyd, an unarmed African American killed by police, after the official defended heavy handed policing of protesters defying the city's curfew. Hundreds of mourners jeered over Bill de Blasio's brief remarks at the Brooklyn service following a night in which videos circulating online showed police officers using batons on peaceful demonstrators. De Blasio told reporters he had not seen the footage but defended how the curfew was being enforced, saying that the NYPD had "overall" shown "a lot of restraint."

U.S. doctors group sues FDA for limiting access to drug touted by Trump for COVID-19The lawsuit represents the latest front in a highly politicized U.S. debate over access to hydroxychloroquine. The drug has been championed by President Donald Trump as a potential "game-changer" against the coronavirus, but its value has yet to be established. A clinical trial released on Wednesday found it to be ineffective in preventing infection.

Workers Fearful of the Coronavirus Are Getting Fired and Losing Their Benefits  » 
4 Jun 2020, 19:13

Workers Fearful of the Coronavirus Are Getting Fired and Losing Their BenefitsDENVER -- After scraping by for weeks on unemployment checks and peanut butter sandwiches, Jake Lyon recently received the call that many who temporarily lost their jobs because of the coronavirus pandemic have anticipated: The college-town tea shop where he worked was reopening, and it was time to go back.But Lyon, 23, and his co-workers in Fort Collins, Colorado, who were temporarily laid off, worried about contracting the virus, so they asked the shop's owners to delay reopening and meet with them to discuss safety measures. The reluctance cost them. Six of them permanently lost their jobs in May, and their former employer reported them to the state's unemployment office to have their benefits potentially revoked."You have all refused to go back to work," their former boss wrote in an email.As people across the United States are told to return to work, employees who balk at the health risks say they are being confronted with painful reprisals: Some are losing their jobs if they try to stay home, and thousands more are being reported to the state to have their unemployment benefits cut off.Businesses want to bring back customers and profits. But workers now worry about contracting the coronavirus once they return to cramped restaurant kitchens, dental offices or conference rooms where few colleagues are wearing masks.Some states with a history of weaker labor protections are encouraging employers to report workers who do not return to their jobs, citing state laws that disqualify people from receiving unemployment checks if they refuse a reasonable offer of work.Oklahoma set up a "Return To Work" email address for businesses to report employees who turn down jobs. Ohio offered a similar way for employers to report coronavirus-related work refusals.Labor advocates and unions say the push to recall workers and kick reluctant employees off unemployment benefits carries grave risks in the age of the coronavirus, when infections have rampaged through meatpacking plants, call centers, factories and other confined spaces where co-workers spend hours touching the same surfaces and breathing the same air."Their choices are: 'Do I go back and risk my life or say no and risk being kicked off unemployment and not be able to pay my bills?'" said Rachel Bussett, an employment lawyer in Oklahoma, where 179 businesses have reported workers to the unemployment agency.Alabama, Oklahoma and South Carolina are among several states that have told workers they cannot continue to collect unemployment if they turn down a suitable job offer. Missouri has received 982 reports of workers refusing to return to their jobs.In Tennessee, where 735 workers have been reported for refusing to return to work, the state labor commissioner announced that the fear of contracting the coronavirus was not a good enough excuse to not go back. To continue to qualify for unemployment, workers need to be directly affected by the virus: They must have a diagnosed case of COVID-19, be caring for a patient or be confined by a quarantine, among other reasons outlined by Congress in the coronavirus stimulus law that was passed in March.The question has split along partisan lines, with some Republican politicians and business owners complaining that furloughed workers have little incentive to go back to work if they are earning more from the emergency aid passed by Congress.Steven Mnuchin, the Treasury secretary, recently told a Senate panel that workers who turned down their old jobs could be ineligible for unemployment payments. But Pennsylvania's Democratic governor took a different view, saying that workers should refuse to go back to jobs they consider unsafe."This is uncharted waters," said Kersha Cartwright, a spokeswoman for the Georgia Department of Labor, which has encouraged businesses to work with employees on reopening plans after the state became one of the first in the country to forge ahead with reopening.In interviews across the country, workers said they were anxious to keep their jobs at a time when the economic devastation of the coronavirus has left more than 40 million in the country out of work. With the job market bleak and many family members unemployed, many people said they felt powerless to refuse an order to return to work or question the safety practices at their jobs.In the tea shop case, Lyon lost his unemployment benefits after his former bosses reported him to the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment. The state agency ruled that Lyon's work "did not present an unacceptable risk" to his health, and disqualified him from unemployment for 20 weeks."What we're asking for is so basic during an unprecedented global pandemic," Lyon said.But Qin Liu, who owns the tea shop, the Ku Cha House of Tea, with his wife, said they had tried to accommodate their employees' safety concerns by limiting customers in the store, installing a sneeze guard at the cash register, requiring masks and halting tea services and free samples of their teas. But he said his business would founder if it stayed closed until there was a vaccine or cure."They wanted to wait a little bit longer till the danger has passed," Liu said. "But for us, a small business, the danger is imminent."Liu said the business was also obligated under Colorado labor laws to notify the state when they dismissed the six workers, inciting the unemployment investigation.In Toledo, Ohio, Stephanie VanSlambrouck, 45, said she urged her husband to quit when he was called back to his job as a steel fabricator after weeks of working from home. He reads blueprints and pores over figures all day and has little need to go into the office, VanSlambrouck said.But the couple have three children and had already lost their home to foreclosure once, after the 2008 housing crash. So now her husband eats lunch at his desk, sanitizes his hands and wears a mask to the Monday morning planning meetings in the small conference room."We're caught," VanSlambrouck said. "We have to do what our bosses are telling us. And to quit a job in this uncertain time would be ridiculous. You can't walk away from something that's providing food for the family, because who knows what's going to happen in a week?"Mark Adani, a car salesman in suburban Detroit, spent weeks working from home to avoid the coronavirus. He is 71 and has high blood pressure, and his wife has heart trouble. But he recently got an ultimatum from his dealership: Come back to the office or consider a new job."I'm damned if I come to work, damned if I don't come to work," he said.Adani said one worker had already died of COVID-19, and he flirted with letting his bosses dismiss him when he was called back to the office.Ultimately, he decided to go back. He was unable to reach anyone from Michigan's overwhelmed unemployment system to answer whether he could refuse to go back and still retain his benefits.With customers scarce, Adani said he spent much of the day at his desk, chasing online leads and worrying about bringing home the virus to his wife. Most of his co-workers slip on masks when they head to the break room for coffee."I really don't feel this place is safe," Adani said.Nurses, grocery store workers, fast-food cashiers, slaughterhouse workers and others deemed "essential" have been navigating these fears throughout the pandemic because they never stopped working. Now the concern is spreading to wider areas of the economy.In Boise, Idaho, Robin Slater, a 65-year-old line cook with chronic shortness of breath from 40 years of smoking, said he was reluctant to answer the call back to work at the sports bar where he constantly bumps up against other cooks in the tiny kitchen. He said he was the only one who wore a mask. The plan, he said, was to limit tables to six people or fewer, though a party of 14 came in to eat last Sunday.Slater said he had little choice other than returning to work because he was almost certain to lose his $220 in weekly unemployment, supplemented by the $600 passed as part of the coronavirus relief bill. So far, 147 workers in Idaho have been reported as refusing to work, though the state did not say how many had lost benefits.Slater's uneasiness has not gone away after his first few shifts, though few others at work seem bothered."Most of our servers and cooks are in their 20s and 30s," Slater said. "They're all like, 'It doesn't really matter.' But I don't want to go back to work and die."This article originally appeared in The New York Times.(C) 2020 The New York Times Company

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.

Brazil, Mexico suffer record daily rise in coronavirus deathsBrazil and Mexico suffered a record rise in daily coronavirus deaths amid fears Latin America is reopening too soon. On Wednesday, Mexico reported a daily death toll that exceeded 1,000 for the first time since the outbreak began, while Brazil announced 1,349 deaths for the day, a record for the country. Both nations now rank in the top ten countries that have suffered the highest number of fatalities, but there is grave concern that, unlike their European counterparts, Latin nations have yet to reach the peak of the epidemic. Countries in Europe are beginning to emerge from their lockdowns, with borders reopening and people returning to work. But in South America, new hotspots are emerging and hospitals are threatened to be overwhelmed.

Bill Barr Takes Charge of Trump’s Crackdown as the Military Tries to Back Away  » 
3 Jun 2020, 23:39

Bill Barr Takes Charge of Trump’s Crackdown as the Military Tries to Back AwayAs President Trump continues to try and drum up support for his call for states to “dominate” protesters and beef up police presence against them, Attorney General Bill Barr and a team of senior Justice Department officials have quietly taken the lead on disrupting the protests and going after the petty criminals who may be using the demonstrations as cover. It’s been a controversial move, even within Barr’s own department. One federal prosecutor called Barr’s most high-profile effort to quell the unrest “politically-charged [and] bogus.” A senior law enforcement official called it “a political ploy to make being anti-Trump look like terrorism.”   Until Thursday, the department had operated largely behind closed doors in carrying out its plan to take charge of the administration’s response to the nationwide protests. But on Thursday afternoon, Barr, alongside FBI Director Chris Wray, and representatives from other leading law enforcement agencies, took the stage to discuss in detail the Department of Justice’s strategy in cracking down on “extremists and agitators that hijack the protest.” Barr said his department, along with other federal law enforcement agencies, are working with state and local officials to identify individuals who have looted storefronts and incited violence from the larger groups of peaceful protests. “We understand the distinction between the three different sets of actors,” Barr said.But, the attorney general said, President Trump pushed him to use all resources necessary to pursue individuals who engage in “crimes to terrify citizens.” Barr claimed that “antifa” and “other such extremist groups” were hijacking protests, looting, and setting police cars on fire. He acknowledged that groups with “other political persuasions” were also involved. But he failed to call out those individuals who, for example, were charged with similar crimes in Las Vegas and identified with the right-wing “Boogooloo” movement. When questioned by a reporter about his choice of words, Barr dodged and pointed to the fact that he had said that there were other groups involved in these crimes.Throughout the press conference both Barr and Wray continually used the word “rioting” to describe acts by “extremists and agitators” hijacking protests. The choice of words was unusual, given the fact that only two of the federal cases charged so far had anything to do with “rioting,” according to a data obtained by The Daily Beast. One senior justice official told The Daily Beast Wednesday that the “rioting” charge was overly broad and that it was important to note in reporting that the department was staying away from it.Of the 20 individuals brought up on federal charges since May 31, only two have been charged with crimes related to rioting. Both were charged under Title 18, section 2101 of the U.S. Code, which references “riots.” Carlos A. Matchett of Atlantic City was arrested Wednesday by the FBI and was charged with using “a facility of interstate and foreign commerce, namely, a cellular telephone and the social media platform Facebook, Inc., with intent to participate in and carry on a riot,” according to a DOJ news release. And in Eerie, Pennsylvania, Melquan Barnett was charged with malicious destruction of property using fire or explosives. He was charged under several federal statutes, including Title 18 USC 2101.The attorney general’s efforts to crack down on individuals involved in the protests shows the extent to which the Department of Justice is playing a leading role in the administration’s response to the chaos that has ensnared cities across the U.S. Meanwhile, Trump this week sheltered in a bunker as protests grew in Washington and posed for a photo op, with a bible, in front of St. John’s Episcopal Church, and said he would take any means necessary to stop “acts of domestic terror.” As the Pentagon has moved to distance itself from Trump’s rhetoric about militarizing American cities, the Department of Justice appears to be using a different tactic: aggression. In the early hours following clashes between protesters and police in Minneapolis on May 26, Barr and senior officials at DOJ began holding meetings and calls, strategizing ways to clamp down, two senior officials in the department told The Daily Beast. Scenes of looters ransacking local shops and vandalizing police buildings unnerved Barr, those officials said, and the attorney general directed his team to find a framework to identify and arrest those individuals and  charge them with federal crimes. The idea was to try and take control of the administration’s response to the protests by relying on the FBI’s regional counterterrorism hubs to share information with local law enforcement about, in Barr’s own words, “extremists.” It wasn’t immediately clear to senior justice officials working with Barr how the department would go about implementing an initiative focused on arresting and charging individuals with federal crimes on a nationwide scale. The fear was states would push back on Barr’s intervention, just as they had with Trump demanding they accept assistance from the National Guard. A third justice official said there was additional concern that the plan would require rigorous investigative and surveillance efforts that could take away from other ongoing law enforcement matters.That’s when Barr turned to an existing counterterrorism network—Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTFs)— led by the FBI that unite federal, state and local law enforcement to monitor and pursue suspected terrorists. A few days later, Barr communicated his plans to the nation’s governors. “The construction we are going to use is the JTTF. It’s a tried and true system. It worked for domestic homegrown terrorists. We’re going to apply that model,” Barr said on the call. “It already integrates your state and local people. It’s intelligence driven. We want to lean forward and charge … anyone who violates a federal law in connection with this rioting.”President Trump technically ran the call with the governors, directing them to punch “hashtag two” to get on the line to ask questions. But the president repeatedly handed the reins over to Barr. “We will activate Bill Barr and we will activate him strongly,” Trump said. Barr, under questioning from Gov. Janet Mills of Maine, laid out his thinking on why states needed to “dominate” the streets. “We need to have people in control of the streets so we can go out and work with law enforcement ... identify these people in the crowd, pull them out and prosecute them,” Barr said.In the past week, federal officers have charged three individuals in New York and two in Minnesota for alleged involvement in Molotov cocktail attacks on municipal properties. And on Monday, following the president’s remarks in Lafayette Park in which he threatened states with sending in active military personnel to their cities, arrest numbers more than doubled in DC and New York City.  ‘Uncomfortable Mission’: Pentagon Tries to Retreat From Trump’s Call to ‘Dominate’ ProtestsBarr’s enthusiasm for the crackdown is conspicuous. It stands in marked contrast to the Pentagon, which is reeling from its leadership’s decision to appear beside Trump after park police, supported by National Guardsmen, violently cleared Lafayette Park from peaceful protesters so the president could stage a photo op – reportedly Barr’s idea. Two days later, Defense Secretary Mark Esper, under withering criticism for his tacit endorsement of the action, publicly rejected Trump’s threat to use the active-duty military against the protesters, something that has jeopardized Esper’s standing in the administration. To those close to Trump, it is no surprise that the president has given Barr such a broad professional mandate in imposing their particular mold of law and order as the civil unrest has spread. “[For days], the president has [bragged to officials] how ‘tough’ the attorney general is, and that if anyone can restore order, it’s this guy,” according to a senior administration official. “The president sees Barr as [the] ‘bad cop’ he can unleash if states and cities don’t get their act together.”A senior official at the Department of Justice said there is a small team working to track the results of the attorney general’s directive that more resources be put toward investigating and prosecuting “agitators.” In Washington, there have been a little over 100 arrests that went to the local U.S. attorneys office. Of those arrested, 75 were charged but only one person was charged with a federal crime for breaking into a bank, according to a senior justice official. There are eight federal charges pending in the city, that person said. None of the defendants were charged with rioting.According to multiple current and former Justice Department and law enforcement officials, Barr is misusing the Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTFs) in support of President Trump’s insistence that antifascists are “terrorists” exploiting the nationwide protests. Antifa is not an organization, nor is there a domestic terrorism statute for designating them terrorists. The early federal charges emerging from Barr’s crackdown concern crimes like arson, not terrorism-related offenses. And in Nevada, three men with ties to a right-wing extremists advocating for the overthrow of the U.S. government were arrested on terrorism-related charges for a conspiracy to carry out acts of violence during protests in Las Vegas. Veteran law enforcement officials point to the gulf between Barr’s treatment of the left-wing protesters and far more violent right-wing elements whom the Justice Department has not prioritized. Barr Promises to Sic Terror-Hunters on ProtestersA federal prosecutor who requested anonymity said the use of the JTTF against the protests revealed Barr’s double standards, as right-wing violence – aimed unlike the protesters against people, rather than property – has yet to register as a priority. “We didn’t hear anything about the Justice Department calling on JTTFs after, say, a manifesto-writing lunatic murdered people in Wal-Mart, or another political-slogan-spouting crazy sent bombs to Soros’ house in New York,” the prosecutor said. The prosecutor considered Barr’s behavior over the protests to be “a new low” for the attorney general. “He attributes all the violent, destructive activity in the protests to ‘left-wing antifa’ elements. He has no evidence to back that up whatsoever,” the prosecutor said. Another senior law enforcement official said that using the JTTF against the protesters is “a political ploy to make being anti-Trump look like terrorism.” Two officials familiar with JTTF operations described cases against protesters being turned over from counterterrorism-focused participants to federal prosecutors and FBI special agents to determine what activity violates existing federal statutes.The FBI portrayed its use of the JTTFs in relation to the protests as a repurposing of a network it already had in place to connect its agents to local police in the cities where the protests are occurring, rather than an indication that “antifa” or other protesters represented a terrorist threat. “JTTFs are being utilized as an existing partnership of federal, state, and local law enforcement that is already in place. Their focus is on identifying and disrupting criminal activity and as such, the statutory limitations around domestic use of national security intelligence authorities apply,” the FBI told the Daily Beast in a statement. Still, federal prosecutors and JTTF veterans expressed concern about the propriety of aiming a tool for counterterrorism at protesters, particularly when the FBI concedes that the JTTF focus is on criminal activity rather than terrorism.  In other words, the JTTFs are a mechanism of convenience rather than an indication of any terrorist element within the protests: “If we were invaded by Mars, we’d use JTTFs, an existing partnership, for an anti-Martian task force,” said the federal prosecutor. The greater issue, the prosecutor continued, is a “politically-charged, bogus attempt to attribute all this to left-wing activity and the use of inappropriate means to respond. Civil society leaders everywhere are able to draw the distinction between peaceful protesters, property crimes and people throwing bricks at cops, and Barr is unable to make this distinction.”Mystery Officers Patrolling D.C. Streets Are From Federal PrisonsBarr’s focus is also conspicuous for overlooking the most violent element in the protests: the police, whose slaying of George Floyd – and thousands of African-American men, women and children before him – sparked the nationwide protests. In New York City, videos surfaced on social media showing police officers plowing through protesters with their cars. In Atlanta, officers dragged college students from a car and shot them with stun guns. In Manhattan on Sunday night, a Daily Beast reporter saw at least three police officers take nightsticks to a protester who was already on the ground after he ran from an officer who had unholstered his gun. By contrast, dozens of individuals involved in protests throughout the country—many of them white—have smashed storefronts, stealing clothes and other merchandise, and some set fire to police cars. The Trump administration actively encourages police violence on people, while describing as “terrorism” crimes that are largely against property. Still, Barr is not without his high-profile supporters. Ever since his handling of the unveiling of the Mueller report, Barr has become not just a favorite of the president’s, but a folk hero throughout Trumpworld.“Bill has tremendous insight and knowledge both of the applicable laws and the conditional implications of the current situation. The president made a wise choice in nominating Bill Barr to be attorney general, and he has served the country well and will continue to do so [in this crisis],” said Jay Sekulow, a Trump attorney who has known Barr for years. “He’s doing a phenomenal job.”—with additional reporting by Adam Rawnsley and Asawin SuebsaengRead more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Prosecutors: 3 men plotted to terrorize Vegas protestsThree Nevada men with ties to a loose movement of right-wing extremists advocating the overthrow of the U.S. government have been arrested on terrorism-related charges in what authorities say was a conspiracy to spark violence during recent protests in Las Vegas. Federal prosecutors say the three white men with U.S. military experience are accused of conspiring to carry out a plan that began in April in conjunction with protests to reopen businesses closed because of the coronavirus. More recently, they sought to capitalize on protests over the death of George Floyd, a black man who died in Minneapolis after a white officer pressed his knee into his neck for several minutes even after he stopped moving and pleading for air, prosecutors said.

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?

Amid Spreading George Floyd Protests in Europe, a Question: Do Black Lives Matter Less in France?  » 
3 Jun 2020, 17:38

Amid Spreading George Floyd Protests in Europe, a Question: Do Black Lives Matter Less in France?PARIS—The crowd that gathered in front of the city’s main courthouse demanded justice for a black man who’d died at the hands of the police. They chanted, “We Can’t Breathe” and brandished signs and scrawled graffiti slogans from the Black Lives Matter movement. The police used tear gas to disperse the largely peaceful protesters, and then small groups of troublemakers broke off to smash windows, bust up ATMs, and burn trash bins. Politicians and commentators took to the airwaves the next morning to trade accusations about who was at fault for the violence.It was a scene straight out of the United States right now, except that it happened in Paris, and the 20,000 people who gathered here Tuesday were commemorating not only George Floyd, but France’s own victim of police violence: Adama Traoré, a 24-year-old construction worker, died in a police station after being arrested in 2016.“My little brother’s  last words were ‘I can’t breathe,’” his sister Assa Traoré told the crowd through a megaphone. “They could have taken him to a hospital. They could have tried to save him. They didn’t. They killed my little brother.’’Crowds have gathered in London, Berlin and Amsterdam these past days to protest Floyd’s death at the hands, or to be more precise, the knee, of a Minneapolis policeman on May 25. But while Tuesday night’s turnout in Paris certainly was amplified by events across the Atlantic, it was also a stark reminder that France has its own issues of racism and police violence.What America Can Learn From Europe’s Black BlocsWatching events unfold in the U.S. brings a certain sense of déja vu to anyone in France. The same dormant grievances. The same spark setting off nationwide protests. The same largely peaceful gatherings of people that turn violent. The same disagreement over whether agitators or police are to blame for the degeneration. The same vandals who take advantage to destroy property and go home with the latest flat screen TV.It happened in 2018, when protests by the so-called Gilets Jaunes, or Yellow Vests, brought much of France to a standstill and led to historic monuments being trashed in central Paris amid accusations of police violence. It happened in 2005 when French ghettos burned for three weeks after two boys died trying to escape a police ID check. To a lesser degree, it’s happened with labor protests in the years in between, including last year’s against raising the retirement age.Police violence and racism have been the subject of many French films, including Les Miserables, last year’s candidate for best foreign film at the Oscars.The French government has been quick to try to dispel any thought that France’s situation is anything like that of the United States. Sibeth Ndiaye, the government’s spokesperson, said Tuesday that events in France and America “aren’t comparable” and insisted “there’s no institutionalized state violence in France.’’ Many French would disagree. Indeed, resentment of the police may well be much more widespread, and among more varied parts of the population, than in the United States.France doesn’t break out statistics by race, and the police don’t publish detailed statistics about their activities, making comparisons with the U.S. difficult. The lack of transparency is one reason journalist David Dufresne became known nationwide during the Gilets Jaunes protests for using his @davduf Twitter account to publish accusations of police violence. The numerous testimonies he received led to a book.The percentage of French who expressed confidence in the police dropped 8 points to 66 percent in this year’s annual poll by an institute linked to the Sciences Po university in Paris.  That’s way below the level in Britain and Germany. Chloe Morin, a researcher with the Jean-Jaurès Foundation, said one result of the Gilets Jaunes protests is that dislike of the police, which used to be largely limited to visible minorities, is now shared by wide swaths of white France. “In the U.S., the bad relations are specific to certain places and certain populations,’’ she told The Daily Beast. “In France, between the Gilets Jaunes, the ghettos, and now last year’s pension protests, you have three groups who feel humiliated by the police.’’ The Gilets Jaunes were largely white and rural. They initially blocked roundabouts across France to protest new taxes on gasoline, in their view imposed by an ecologically obsessed government that didn’t understand that outside of Paris people actually have to drive. The protests spread across the country and turned violent when they were joined by groups unhappy with everything from purchasing power to President Emmanuel Macron’s haughty style. Self-declared antifa and anarchist elements also joined in. The momentum of the movement only trailed off when Macron rolled back the gas tax and threw lots of money at various other grievances, and the pandemic lockdown seemed to put an definitive end to it. (The public health emergency was the reason police gave on Tuesday for breaking up the demonstration.)There was also an anti-immigrant element to some Gilets Jaunes, which explains why much of black and Arab France sat out the protests. France’s so-called banlieues, immigrant-heavy suburbs and exurbs, have been largely calm since the 2005 riots, which led to then President Jacques Chirac declaring a state of emergency for the first time since the Algerian War.The cynical explanations about why the banlieues haven’t exploded again, even though the job situation and relations with the police have not improved, is that the drug dealers and Islamist ideologues who often hold sway don’t want any trouble. France’s extensive social net has certainly helped as well. It hasn’t been for lack of incidents. Traoré died in a police station after being tackled when he fled a police identity check. The police had come to arrest his brother, but Adama ran because he apparently didn’t have his papers on him. Four years later, conflicting medical reports still haven’t settled whether he died from the way he was treated by police or because of an underlying heart condition. “These images of Floyd horrified us, but what we denounce with such vehemence in the U.S. happens here in France, even worse,’’ Adama’s sister Assa said on BFMTV Tuesday. “In the U.S., the police were fired, here they received medals.’’ Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

‘Tiger King’: Carole Baskin’s Husband Don Lewis’ Will Was Forged, Sheriff Says  » 
3 Jun 2020, 15:49

‘Tiger King’: Carole Baskin’s Husband Don Lewis’ Will Was Forged, Sheriff SaysHillsborough County, Florida Sheriff Chad Chronister is convinced that Carole Baskin’s former husband Don Lewis’s will—which granted Baskin all of Lewis’ assets in the event of his disappearance—is a fake. Moreover, he said, two experts have confirmed it.“They had two experts deem it 100 percent a forgery,” Chronister told Tampa news outlet WTSP, as reported by TMZ. The problem, he said, is the statute of limitations has already expired. “But you know, it certainly cast another shadow of suspicion.”In May, two handwriting experts told a reporter from the Mississippi Center for Investigative Reporting that the signature and power of attorney on Lewis’ will appeared to have been traced from his marriage record—as did the witness and notary signatures.At this point, due to the lapsed statute of limitations, Chronister said, “There’s no recourse.” But, he added, “The investigators have some great leads; they’re working through them. I hope something pans out.”Chronister’s office also apparently spoke with Don Lewis’ children, whom he said “had additional information the investigators weren't aware of.” Investigators also spoke with the office manager, who “started to tell them things that they weren’t aware of, that they didn’t have in their files,” Chronister said. “So I think they’re going through a lot of information right now, and fingers crossed... I hope we can finally solve this case.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

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 gas  »

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  » 
4 Jun 2020, 23:00

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  » 
4 Jun 2020, 22:41

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.
