Don't count on ever seeing Trump's 'Garden of American Heroes'  »

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.

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.

With a view toward Iran, Israel launches spy satellite  »

With a view toward Iran, Israel launches spy satelliteIsrael said it successfully launched a new spy satellite into space on Monday as its leaders hinted it was behind a massive fire at an Iranian nuclear site last week — potentially ratcheting up a long-running covert war. If Israel was responsible for the fire at the heavily fortified Natanz facility, it would mark another in a series of daring strikes against Iran’s nuclear program attributed to Israel, while also risking Iranian retaliation on either Israeli or Western targets. “The success of the Ofek 16 satellite very much increases our ability to act against Israel’s enemies, near and far alike," he told his Cabinet.

Coronavirus: Texas mayors warn of 'serious trouble' as cases surge across US  » 
5 Jul 2020, 20:10

Coronavirus: Texas mayors warn of 'serious trouble' as cases surge across US* Leaders of Houston and Austin fear hospital bed shortage * Florida closes beaches as cases pass 200,000 * Trump stokes division over pandemic and raceTwo prominent Texas mayors have warned that hospitals in their cities will be “overwhelmed” by cases of Covid-19 inside two weeks, even as Donald Trump continues to portray the coronavirus resurgence nationwide as the embers of a fire he is steadily extinguishing.“If we don’t get our hands around this virus quickly, in about two weeks our hospital system could be in serious, serious trouble,” Houston mayor Sylvester Turner said on Sunday, the last day of a Fourth of July holiday weekend during which experts feared many Americans would disregard public health guidelines.“I mean, overwhelmed. Right now we have bed capacity. But let me just tell you, the major problem [is] the staffing. We can always provide additional beds but we need the people, the nurses and everybody else, the medical professionals to staff those beds. That’s the critical point right now.”Turner’s comments, to CBS’s Face the Nation, came as hospitalisation and Covid-19 positivity rates climb in his city.Texas, along with Arizona and Florida, has become a hotspot for the infection, recording six straight days of confirmed new cases above 5,000. On Saturday it set a record of 8,258 cases and 7,890 hospitalisations.“A month ago, one in 10 people were testing positive,” said Turner, a Democrat. “Today, it’s one in four. The number of people who are getting sick and going to the hospitals has exponentially increased. The number of people in our [intensive care] beds has exponentially increased.”According to researchers at Johns Hopkins University, the US has now confirmed nearly 2.9m coronavirus cases, and nearly 130,000 deaths. States which were early hotspots, New York prominent among them, are pausing or proceeding cautiously with reopening plans.At the White House on Saturday, Trump attempted to downplay the resurgence of the virus, claiming without evidence the infection was “99% harmless”.“Our strategy is moving along well,” he said. “It goes out in one area, it rears back its ugly face in another area. But we’ve learned a lot. We’ve learned how to put out the flame.”The president’s words angered Steve Adler, the Democratic mayor of Austin.“I understand he has a tough job, but it is dangerous not to be sending a clear message to Americans, to folks in my town,” he told CNN’s State of the Union.“We have the Fourth of July weekend and we need everybody wearing masks. And when they start hearing that kind of ambiguous message coming out of Washington, there are more and more people that won’t wear masks, that won’t social distance, that won’t do what it takes to keep a community safe.“And that’s wrong, and it’s dangerous. I just have to hope that people aren’t going to listen to that, and they will stay focused on what they’re hearing here more locally.”Hospitals in Austin, Adler said, were facing a nearly identical crisis to those in Houston.“The conduct in our city started changing about two weeks ago,” he said. “If we don’t change the trajectory, then I am within two weeks of having our hospitals overrun. And in our ICUs, I could be 10 days away from that.”Greg Abbott, the Republican governor of Texas, implemented a statewide mask mandate last week, a move Adler said he welcomed but wished had come sooner. On Sunday, Abbott’s office said more than 400 cases of the antiviral drug remdesivir had been distributed to 157 hospitals and 600 medical staff and 16 ventilators had been deployed to areas of greatest need in southern Texas.Elsewhere over the holiday weekend, pressure on hospital space mounted. Florida, where beaches in the populous south-eastern counties of Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach were closed to deter large gatherings, recorded 10,059 new cases on Sunday, edging the state past 200,000 cases only two weeks after it reached 100,000.Four of 11 hospitals in Pinellas county had run out of intensive care beds on Sunday, according to the Florida agency for healthcare administration, following weeks of warnings that hospital space across the state was dwindling.In Miami-Dade county, which implemented its own mask requirement after Republican governor Ron DeSantis resisted growing calls for a statewide mandate, more patients (138) were admitted to hospital than discharged (125). The total inpatient count of 1,538 is almost double the 22 June tally of 776.“It’s clear that the growth is exponential at this point,” Francis Suarez, the Republican mayor of Miami, told ABC’s This Week. “You know we’ve been breaking record after record after record, all the last couple of weeks.“The city of Miami was the last city in the entire state of Florida to open. I was criticised for waiting so long. But there’s no doubt that when we reopened people started socialising as if the virus didn’t exist.”Arizona reported 3,536 new cases on Sunday, an increase of 841 from the day before.“We opened way too early in Arizona,” Kate Gallego, the Democratic mayor of Phoenix, told ABC. “We were one of the last states to go to stay-at-home and one of the first to reemerge.”

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.”

Madeleine McCann suspect 'could have snatched another child', say parents of young girl he allegedly exposed himself toThe German paedophile suspected of abducting Madeleine McCann “could have snatched another child”, say the parents of a young girl he allegedly exposed himself to in 2017. Christian Brückner was arrested in Portugal for exposing himself at a playground, leaving parents terrified that the convicted sex offender could have gone further and taken their children away in his van. The new details of Brückner’s twisted behaviour in the Algarve have once again put the spotlight on Portuguese authorities as to why they did not link the career criminal to the country’s biggest ever missing persons case. Instead of facing trial in Portugal, he was extradited to Germany on an outstanding arrest warrant for separate child sex abuse charges. The German drifter, who spent two decades living on and off in Portugal was arrested in 2017 after four children told their parents he had flashed them at a playground in Sao Bartomoleu de Messines, a town less than an hour away from Praia da Luz, where Madeleine went missing ten years before.

Trump claims 99% of US Covid-19 cases are 'totally harmless' as infections surge  »

Trump claims 99% of US Covid-19 cases are 'totally harmless' as infections surgePresident’s White House speech capping 4 July celebrations says US coronavirus strategy is ‘moving along well’ * Coronavirus latest updates * See all our coronavirus coverageDonald Trump has celebrated independence day with a string of false and misleading claims attempting to play down the coronavirus pandemic and warning that China will be “held accountable”.The US president staged a “Salute to America” jamboree on the south lawn of the White House with flyovers by military jets, parachute jumps and patriotic songs, but little effort among guests to physical distance or wear face masks.The country has undergone staggering changes unthinkable when Trump hosted the first such event a year ago on 4 July with tanks and other military hardware at the Lincoln Memorial. The coronavirus has infected 2.8m Americans and killed nearly 130,000, the worst tallies in the world.Saturday’s national celebration was inevitably more subdued, but the president refused to let the pandemic or dismal poll figures rain on his parade, waving with his wife, Melania, from a White House balcony then walking the south lawn to ripples of applause and a cry of: “Four more years!”“We got hit by the virus that came from China,” the president said, prompting a strange whoop and applause from someone in the audience. “We’ve made a lot of progress. Our strategy is moving along well. It goes out in one area, it rears back its ugly face in another area. But we’ve learned a lot. We’ve learned how to put out the flame.”The number of infections now regularly tops 50,000 per day, higher than in April when the US was in the first grip of infections. Dr Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious diseases expert, warned this week: “I think it’s pretty obvious that we are not going in the right direction.”Trump returned to his now familiar and baseless complaint that America has a high caseload because it performs more tests. “Now we have tested almost 40m people. By so doing, we show cases, 99% of which are totally harmless. Results that no other country can show because no other country has the testing that we have, not in terms of the numbers or in terms of quality.”It was unclear how the president arrived at the “99%” harmless figure.He also returned to his criticisms of the source of the coronavirus. “China’s secrecy, deceptions and cover up allowed it to spread all over the world. One hundred and eighty-nine countries and China must be held fully accountable.”There was applause from the guests, but the White House has so far failed to detail what measures it is considering against Beijing, with which it recently struck a major trade deal.And contradicting Fauci and other public health experts, the president offered a wildly optimistic prediction: “We’ll likely have a therapeutic and/or vaccine solution long before the end of the year.” The presidential election is on 3 November.But the lion’s share of Trump’s remarks were a rehashing of a speech he gave on Friday night at Mount Rushmore, breaking from 4 July tradition by seeking to stoke a culture war and pour salt on America’s racial wounds instead of a unifying message.“We are now in the process of defeating the radical left, the Marxists, the anarchists, the agitators, the looters, and people who in many instances have absolutely no clue what they are doing,” he said.“We will never allow an angry mob to tear down our statues, erase our history, indoctrinate our children or trample on our freedoms ... We will teach our children to cherish and adore our country so they can build its future. Together, we will fight for the American dream.”Trump pointedly said “our way of life” began in 1492 “when Columbus discovered America”. Statues of Christopher Columbus have been toppled along with those of Confederate generals during several weeks of protest against racial injustice following the police killing of George Floyd, an African American man, in Minneapolis.Some have argued that, instead of America’s familiar birthday in 1776, the nation truly began in 1619 with arrival of the first enslaved Africans in Virginia.But Trump went on: “In every age, there have always been those who lie about the past in order to gain power in the present ... Their goal is demolition. Our goal is not to destroy the greatest structure on earth, what we have built, the United States of America.”Trump touted an executive order he issued on Friday for the creation of a national garden of Americans heroes and berated the media for dishonouring, lying and slandering the country’s best. He added: “We will not throw away our heroes. We will honour them and we will prove worthy of their sacrifice ... The patriots who built our country were not villains. They were heroes.”Following his speech, Trump and the first lady watched a spectacular display of military jets that have taken part in America’s military conflicts from the second world war onwards.

Israel Looks for Answers to the Second Virus Wave  » 
6 Jul 2020, 21:03

Israel Looks for Answers to the Second Virus Wave(Bloomberg) -- The Bank of Israel said it plans to purchase corporate debt for the first time as a new surge in Covid-19 cases stalks the economy.In its decision Monday, the monetary committee maintained its key interest rate at an all-time low of 0.1%, in line with forecasts, but said it was worried about a resurgence in infections and would put new tools into action.The central bank said it will purchase 15 billion shekels ($4.3 billion) worth of corporate bonds, with the goal of reducing the cost of borrowing for companies and making more credit available to the economy.“Currently it appears that the health situation is becoming more severe, and that the risk of additional deterioration in the economic situation has increased,” Governor Amir Yaron said at a news conference after the decision.The second wave of contagion is complicating plans by the central bank to step aside in favor of a primarily fiscal response to the crisis. Since March, the Bank of Israel rolled out a series of crisis programs to boost liquidity and credit including 50 billion shekels of government bond purchases.Until now, policy makers had refrained from entering the corporate bond market -- although they maintained it was an available option.The shekel extended losses after the announcement and was 0.5% weaker at 3.4544 per dollar as of 6:15 p.m. The Tel Aviv Bond 40 Index, which tracks some of the biggest traded debt on the local stock exchange, rose 1.5%.Noting a recent widening of corporate spreads, the central bank said it will conduct purchases in the secondary market on the basis of a broad benchmark of securities, which includes only companies rated A- and higher.The benchmark doesn’t include foreign companies’ bonds, bonds with an equity component, or bonds that aren’t indexed to the shekel and aren’t fixed rateThree-quarters of Israel’s corporate bond market, valued at about 341 billion shekels, are eligible for purchasesThe central bank also renewed a plan to provide banks with fixed-rate loans at 0.1% rate for a term of three yearsIt will additionally create operational and legal infrastructure to enable banks to put up mortgage portfolios as collateral against credit“All it took was a second wave of Covid-19, weak data and a very strong shekel to wake the Bank of Israel,” Guy Beit-Or, head of macro research at Psagot Investment House, said in a report. “Together with the new corporate-bond purchase program, the current monetary stance is Israel is expected to give the much-needed support to the corporate bond and stock markets.”Just over a month after turning more upbeat on the economy, the Bank of Israel’s research staff also released new forecasts, calling for a deeper contraction this year. Government officials are issuing new restrictions, including imposing partial lockdowns, as they try to keep the renewed outbreak in check.The research department downgraded its growth projection to a decline of 6% this year, while raising its 2021 growth forecast slightly to 7.5%Bank of Israel’s interest rate now seen between 0% and 0.1% in one yearInflation forecast lowered to minus 1.1% in 2020Coronavirus infections plummeted after the government imposed a near-total shutdown from mid-March through late April, but opening up the economy has brought the disease back to new daily highs.The central bank also has to contend with the steepest annual fall in consumer prices since 2004. Over the past month, the shekel continued to appreciate against the dollar, increasing fears that it could further limit inflation and hurt exporters.The Bank of Israel has already ramped up its program of foreign-currency purchases designed to weaken the shekel and rouse inflation. But despite tripling the amount it bought to $2.6 billion in May, consumer prices fell an annual 1.6% to stay below zero for a second month.Beyond a stronger signaling of its resistance to shekel gains, the central bank’s options are limited unless it’s willing to carry out unsterilized currency intervention, an operation that officials have said remains a possible tool.“The press release accompanying the decision suggests that the Bank of Israel is focused on growth and the transmission of low rates to the rest of the economy, with inflation and shekel strength as secondary concerns,” Goldman Sachs Group Inc. economists Murat Unur and Kevin Daly said in a report. It “has ample room to ease further.”Some economists also believe there’s a good chance that the Bank of Israel will cut its key rate to zero at approaching meetings -- though policy makers are hesitant to enter negative territory.Additional steps could include a commitment to keep rates in an unspecified range or take the form of lifting the limits on bond purchases, according to Michel Nies, an economist for Citigroup Inc.“Further action might be necessary,” he said in a report. “We expect further FX market intervention as the strong shekel creates headwinds for exporters.”(Updates with details of central bank measures, quote from Goldman Sachs economists)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.

Robocall Ban Upheld, Broadened by Supreme Court in Speech Case  » 
6 Jul 2020, 20:48

Robocall Ban Upheld, Broadened by Supreme Court in Speech Case(Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Supreme Court broadened the federal ban on robocalls to mobile phones, eliminating an exception that had existed for government-debt collection while leaving the rest of the law intact.In a splintered ruling, the court said the 2015 exception, which allowed robocalls if made to recoup debt owed to or guaranteed by the federal government, violated the Constitution’s free speech guarantee. Writing the court’s controlling opinion, Justice Brett Kavanaugh said that exception “favors speech made for collecting government debt over political and other speech.”But Kavanaugh also said the court could strip out the exception without tossing the ban in its entirety.“Constitutional litigation is not a game of gotcha against Congress, where litigants can ride a discrete constitutional flaw in a statute to take down the whole, otherwise constitutional statute,” Kavanaugh wrote for himself, Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito.The ruling is a defeat for political groups that had sought a new avenue for campaign activity in the months leading up to the November election. The challengers -- which included the Oregon Democratic Party, the Washington State Democratic Central Committee and a trade group that represents political consultants -- sought to overturn the entire robocall ban.The ruling upholds the decision of a federal appeals court. President Donald Trump’s administration defended the ban, along with the government exception.Splintered CourtJustices Neil Gorsuch, Clarence Thomas and Sonia Sotomayor joined Kavanaugh in concluding that the government exception was unconstitutional.Gorsuch and Thomas said they wouldn’t have stripped the government exception from the statute and instead would have held that the measure could no longer be applied to the groups that sued. The two said Kavanaugh’s approach amounted to a rewriting of the statute and left the suing groups without anything to show for their constitutional challenge.“Severing and voiding the government-debt exception does nothing to address the injury they claim; after today’s ruling, federal law bars the plaintiffs from using robocalls to promote political causes just as stoutly as it did before,” Gorsuch wrote for the pair. “What is the point of fighting this long battle, through many years and all the way to the Supreme Court, if the prize for winning is no relief at all?”Three other justices -- Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan -- said they would have upheld the government exception but agreed with the decision to keep the rest of the law intact.The 1991 Telephone Consumer Protection Act imposes liability of up to $1,500 for any call or text placed to a mobile phone without prior consent using an automatic dialing system or artificial or prerecorded voice.The case is Barr v. American Association of Political Consultants, 19-631.(Updates with Gorsuch’s opinion starting in eighth 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.

Carnegie Hall, Whitney Museum and S.F. Symphony Got PPP Loans  » 
6 Jul 2020, 20:35

Carnegie Hall, Whitney Museum and S.F. Symphony Got PPP Loans(Bloomberg) -- Several of the nation’s most elite cultural institutions, some with hefty endowments and catering to the wealthy, received millions of dollars in coronavirus-relief loans, according to records released Monday.The institutions -- such as Carnegie Hall and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York and the San Francisco Symphony -- were among the largest recipients of aid to nonprofits under the program, with each of them receiving injections in the range of $5 million to $10 million.The Paycheck Protection Program, introduced earlier this year by the U.S. Small Business Administration, was intended to help struggling companies pay their employees as business ground to a halt because of coronavirus lockdowns.More than 42,000 nonprofits received at least $150,000 in PPP aid apiece. The loan amounts disclosed Monday were stated in ranges, not specific amounts. Charitable organizations were eligible for PPP loans if, like for-profit companies, they had fewer than 500 employees and promised to use the money for payroll or other overhead costs.Thousands of nonprofit recipients were the kind of charities that feed the poor, help the disabled or care for senior citizens. But among them were also dozens of nonprofits that serve as the organizational structure for cultural institutions that already have access to wealthy benefactors, and already capture a sizable chunk of charitable donations.Carnegie Hall, one of the nation’s premiere performing arts spaces, received a loan of $5 million to $10 million despite having net assets of $3.4 billion as of last year, most of which it holds in investments. Most of its shows this season have been postponed or canceled because of the coronavirus, though it has been hosting performances over video.Spokespeople for Carnegie Hall and the Whitney Museum didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.San Francisco’s symphony is one of the most well-funded in the country. Its former conductor, Michael Tilson Thomas, received a salary of $2.6 million, making him one of the highest-paid conductors in the country, and its musicians receive a base salary of more than $180,000, also among the highest in the country. It had total assets of $340 million last year, including investments of more than $280 million, according to the financial statement posted on its website.The symphony has canceled its remaining performances for the year because of the virus. San Francisco’s opera, ballet and its Museum of Modern Art -- whose permanent collection includes works by Henri Matisse, Richard Diebenkorn, Andy Warhol and Georgia O’Keefe -- also each received loans in the $5 million to $10 million range. The symphony and the museum didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.In Los Angeles, the opera and the Hammer Museum, founded by Armand Hammer, the former chairman of Occidental Petroleum Corp. and funded by the company to exhibit his personal art collection, each received loans of $2 million to $5 million. The opera didn’t comment, and the museum didn’t 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.
