Hurricane Fiona heads for Canada after whipping at Bermuda
A hurricane that is expected to transform into a huge post-tropical storm will bring hurricane-strength wind, heavy rain and big waves to Atlantic Canada
By ROB GILLIES and DÁNICA COTO - a*sociated Press Sep 23, 2022 Updated 2 hrs ago

CAGUAS, Puerto Rico (AP) — A hurricane expected to transform into a huge post-tropical storm will bring hurricane-strength wind, heavy rain and big waves to Atlantic Canada, meteorologists said Friday in warning that it has the potential to be one of the most severe storms in the country’s history.

Hurricane Fiona, which had weakened a bit to a Category 3 storm, was forecast to make landfall Saturday morning.

The Canadian Hurricane Centre issued a hurricane watch over extensive coastal expanses of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland. The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Fiona should reach the area as a “large and powerful post-tropical cyclone with hurricane-force winds.”

“This is is definitely going to be one of, if not the most powerful, tropical cyclones to affect our part of the country," said Ian Hubbard, meteorologist for the Canadian Hurricane Centre in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. “It’s going to be definitely as severe and as bad as any I’ve seen."

Fiona was a Category 4 hurricane when it pounded Bermuda with heavy rains and winds earlier Friday as it swept by the island on a route heading for northeastern Canada. Authorities in Bermuda opened shelters and closed schools and offices ahead of Fiona. Michael Weeks, the national security minister, said there had been no reports of major damage.

The U.S. center said Fiona had maximum sustained winds of 125 mph (205 kph) early Friday evening. It was centered about 215 miles (345 kilometers) southeast of Halifax, Nova Scotia, heading north at 46 mph (74 kph).

Hurricane-force winds extended outward up to 115 miles (185 kilometers) from the center and tropical storm-force winds extended outward up to 345 miles (555 kilometers).

Hubbard said the storm was weakening as it moved over cooler water and he felt it highly unlikely it would reach land with hurricane strength. Hurricanes in Canada are somewhat rare, in part because once the storms reach colder waters, they lose their main source of energy. and become extratropical. But those cyclones still can have hurricane-strength winds, though with a cold instead of a warm core and no visible eye. Their shape can be different, too. They lose their symmetric form and can more resemble a comma.

Bob Robichaud, Warning Preparedness Meteorologist for the Canadian Hurricane Centre, said the center of the storm was expected to arrive in Nova Scotia on Saturday morning, but its winds and rains would arrive late Friday.

“It’s going to a bad one,” Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said. “We of course hope there won’t be much needed, but we feel there probably will be. And we will be there for that. In the meantime we encourage everyone to stay safe and to listen to the instructions of local authorities and hang in there for the next 24 hours.”

Officials in Prince Edward Island sent an emergency alert warning of severe flooding along the northern shore of the province. “Immediate efforts should be taken to protect belongings. Avoid shorelines, waves are extremely dangerous. Residents in those regions should be prepared to move out if needed,” the alert read.

Authorities in Nova Scotia sent an emergency alert to phones warning of Fiona’s arrival and urging people to say inside, avoid the shore, charge devices and have enough supplies for at least 72 hours. Officials warned of prolonged power outages, wind damage to trees and structures and coastal flooding and possible road washouts.

A hurricane warning was in effect for Nova Scotia from Hubbards to Brule; Prince Edward Island; Isle-de-la-Madeleine; and Newfoundland from Parson’s Pond to Francois.

Fiona so far has been blamed for at least five deaths — two in Puerto Rico, two in the Dominican Republic and one in the French island of Guadeloupe.

People across Atlantic Canada were stocking up on last-minute essentials and storm-proofing their properties Friday ahead of the arrival.

At Samsons Enterprises boatyard in the small Acadian community of Petit-de-Grat on Nova Scotia’s Cape Breton Island, Jordan David was helping his friend Kyle Boudreau tie down Boudreau’s lobster boat “Bad Influence” in hopes it wouldn’t be lifted and broken by winds .

“All we can do is hope for the best and prepare as best we can. There’s something coming, and just how bad is yet to be determined,” said David, wearing his outdoor waterproof gear.

Kyle Boudreau said he was worried. “This is our livelihood. Our boats get smashed, our traps gets smashed … it’s stuff you don’t have to start your season next year,” he said.

Aidan Sampson said he had been working 11-hour days in his father-in-law’s boatyard for the past week, lifting fishing vessels out of the water.

Meanwhile, the National Hurricane Center said a newly formed tropical depression in the southern Caribbean was expected to begin strengthening, and hit Cuba early Tuesday as a hurricane and then hit southern Florida early Wednesday.

It was centered about 410 miles (660 kilometers) east-southeast of Kingston, Jamaica. It had maximum sustained winds of 35 mph (55 kph) and was moving at 15 mph (24 kph). A hurricane watch was issued for the Cayman Islands.

Before reaching Bermuda, Fiona caused severe flooding and devastation in Puerto Rico, leading U.S. President Joe Biden to say Thursday that the full force of the federal government is ready to help the U.S. territory recover.

Gov. Pedro Pierluisi of Puerto Rico activated the National Guard to help distribute diesel fuel to hospitals and supermarkets. The force is also supplying generators used to operate potable water plants and telecommunications towers. Hundreds of people remained isolated by blocked roads.

Gillies reported from Toronto. a*sociated Press journalist Maricarmen Rivera Sánchez in San Juan, Puerto Rico, contributed.

Diarrhea Don’s Super PAC Raises Just $40 In August, BX MAGAts Better Reload Their EBT Cards

Donald Trump’s super Pac raised just $40 in August in sign of weakness

Donations to former president’s vehicle have slowed significantly in recent months

The decline in fundraising by Donald Trump’s Make America Great Again, Again! super Pac is an early sign that the former president’s legal troubles may be damaging his prospects with donors

Caitlin Gilbert in New York and Courtney Weaver in Washington SEPTEMBER 21 2022

Fundraising for one of Donald Trump’s biggest political action committees has slowed dramatically in recent months, according to new election filings, in an early sign that the former president’s escalating legal troubles may be damaging his prospects with donors.

The Make America Great Again, Again! super Pac, which is the only active super Pac affiliated with Trump, raised just $40 in August, after bringing in $351,000 in July and zero in June. In April and May, the group had raised more than double that amount, with $864,000 in total contributions.

That total second-quarter fundraising represented a marked fall from the $4mn-$5mn raised in the fourth quarter of last year and the first quarter of this year.

The sharp drop-off in fundraising came as the Save America political action committee, which holds the vast majority of the donations, spent $3.8mn on legal fees — the most the Pac has spent on such costs in a single month during the entire 2022 campaign cycle.

Of those fees, $3mn went to the Critton, Luttier & Coleman law firm based in West Palm Beach, Florida.

On Wednesday, New York attorney-general Letitia James filed a civil lawsuit against Trump and his three adult children for “engaging in years of financial fraud” which may lead to the dissolution of his businesses and land him in great legal peril with multiple law enforcement agencies.

At the same time, the former president’s legal team continues to deal with the fallout from the FBI’s raid of his Mar-a-Lago estate and the question of whether he improperly took classified documents from the White House.

MAGAA is one of seven Pacs in Trump’s fundraising network, across which he has about $122mn in hand, according to the latest filings.

While Trump was once one of the most prolific fundraisers of the Republican party this cycle, spending by his Pacs on supporting fellow GOP candidates in upcoming midterm contests has been minimal.

Instead, Republican candidates have been relying largely on the main party committees, with mixed results, just as the US moves into the final stretch before the November midterm elections.

However, the DCCC massively outspent the NRCC during that period — allocating $23.6mn on House races to the NRCC’s $12.5mn.

On the Senate side, the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee had a spending and fundraising edge over the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which has faced criticism for spending too aggressively earlier in the 2022 campaign cycle.

This has left the group with significantly diminished funding reserves compared with other Republican Pacs, which have been forced to spend more during this cycle as a result.

#8 Sep 23 - boeing.....escapes the 737 max safety fiasco for a very measly $200 million

Boeing and its former CEO Dennis Muilenburg agreed to pay hefty fines to settle charges from the Securities and Exchange Commission that they misled the public about the safety of the 737 Max following two fatal crashes in 2018 and 2019.

The SEC alleges that, following an October 2018 crash of a Lion Air 737 Max jet that k*lled 189 people, Boeing and Muilenburg knew that part of the plane's flight control system posed an ongoing safety concern yet told the public that the 737 Max was safe to fly

After a March 10, 2019 fatal 737 Max crash, the SEC alleges that Boeing and Muilenburg knowingly misled the public about "slips" and "gaps" in the certification process of that flight control system

"In times of crisis and tragedy, it is especially important that public companies and executives provide full, fair, and truthful disclosures to the markets," said SEC Chair Gary Gensler in a statement.

"The Boeing Company and its former CEO, Dennis Muilenburg, failed in this most basic obligation. They misled investors by providing a*surances about the safety of the 737 MAX, despite knowing about serious safety concerns."

In a statement, Boeing said that the settlement "fully resolves the SEC's previously disclosed inquiry into matters relating to the 737 MAX accidents."

"Today's settlement is part of the company's broader effort to responsibly resolve outstanding legal matters related to the 737 MAX accidents in a manner that serves the best interests of our shareholders, employees, and other stakeholders," Boeing said.

The company and Muilenburg agreed to settle charges of violating the antifraud provisions of US securities laws, but they did not admit or deny the SEC's allegations. Boeing agreed to pay a $200 million settlement and Muilenburg agreed to pay $1 million.

"Boeing and Muilenburg put profits over people by misleading investors about the safety of the 737 Max all in an effort to rehabilitate Boeing's image following two tragic accidents that resulted in the loss of 346 lives and incalculable grief to so many families," said Gurbir Grewal, director of the SEC's Enforcement Division in a statement.

Muilenburg lost the top job at Boeing in December 2019. But he left with stock options and other a*sets worth about $80 million at that time — though Boeing shares have lost more than half their value since then. It is unknown what Muilenburg did with his Boeing shares and options after his departure

#9 Sep 23 - South Korea president caught on hot mic insulting US Congress as 'idiots

3 people viewing this

@news      By Contributor13      23 hours ago


South Korean President Yoon Seok-yeol was captured on a hot mic reportedly disparaging American lawmakers as "idiots" shortly after he met with US President Joe Biden in New York.

"It would be so humiliating for Biden if these idiots don't pass it in Congress," Yoon was heard telling aides in a now-viral clip, according to a translation by The Washington Post.

Yoon and Biden met Wednesday at the Global Fund's Seventh Replenishment Conference in New York City.

The South Korean president's remark was apparently in reference to Biden pledging $6 billion in funding to the Global Fund, an international organization that aims to defeat HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria.

The $6 billion in funding from the US would need approval from Congress.

South Korea's presidential office on Thursday said that Yoon's comments were not directed at the United States, according to The Post.

The news outlet reported that Yoon's spokeswoman said Yoon was actually speaking about South Korea's parliament and that he did not mention Biden's name, but a similar-sounding Korean word.

Michigan GOP Rep. Peter Meijer quipped about Yoon's apparent insults in a tweet, saying, "hey, only we get to say that."

#11 Sep 23 - Time for the dip! Recession risk now at 80%

@news      By Lazy      1 day ago


According to CNBC’s September Fed survey of economists, fund managers and strategists, those surveyed said there’s a 52% chance that U.S. could enter into recession over the next 12 months.
“The probability of recession, I think it’s much higher than 50% — I think it’s about 80%. Maybe even higher than 80%,” Hanke told CNBC’s Street Signs Asia.
He blamed the U.S. central bank for rising inflation. “The reason for that is because the Fed exploded the money supply, starting early 2020 at an unprecedented rate and they don’t want this length to be visible between the money supply and inflation.”

There’s an 80% chance of the U.S. falling into a recession — much higher than previously predicted, according to Steve Hanke, a professor of applied economics at Johns Hopkins University.

“The probability of recession, I think it’s much higher than 50% — I think it’s about 80%. Maybe even higher than 80%,” Hanke told CNBC’s “Street Signs Asia” on Friday.

“If they continue the quantitative tightening and move that growth rate and M2 (money supply) into negative territory, it’ll be severe.”

Steve Hanke
Hanke was critical, and has been in the past, of the Federal Reserve’s failure to manage inflation through keeping an eye on the large supply of money sloshing around in the U.S. economy.

“They have really been searching for inflation and the causes of inflation in all the wrong places. They’re looking at everything under the sun, but the money supply,” Hanke said.

“And in fact, they’ve doubled and tripled down on the argument that money has no relationship to economic activity or not a reliable relationship to economic activity and inflation.”

“Because if it is, the noose around their neck, and that’s the real problem.”

An increase in money supply drives up prices as consumers are willing to pay more for goods.

Classical economics, as put forward by Milton Friedman and others, have pointed to money supply as the culprit for out-of-control inflation, Hanke added.

The Fed flooded the U.S. economy with large amounts of stimulus and liquidity to keep it afloat during the pandemic, but did not focus on carefully reducing that money supply over time, the professor said.

The M2 supply of money, a broad measure of money supply which includes cash and deposits, has been growing by double digits in the past three years.

Now the growth of M2 money supply is slowing too quickly and that could send the economy into a recession, Hanke warned.

“They are not addressing it correctly,” he said. “In the five months, we’ve seen broad money major in the United States flatline. It’s not growing at all.

“And now they’re going to introduce quantitative tightening and what that’s going to do that will drive the money supply down, that will drive it down into negative territory if they keep this up.”

Hanke said the right economic move would be to keep money supply growing at a “golden growth rate” of 5% to 6% to get inflation to about 2%.

“Now it’s zero. And it will probably go negative,” the professor said. “And that’s that’s why we will see a recession in 2023.”

The case against a man accused of slapping Rudy Giuliani’s back in a supermarket is set to be dismissed, according to a report

ShopRite worker Daniel Gill had been charged with a*sault with intent to cause physical injury, harassment, and menacing over the incident on Staten Island in June

But a source with knowledge of the case told CNN that proceedings have been adjourned “in contemplation of dismissal” and the case is expected to be dismissed completely in six months

Despite the severity of the charges against Gill, his attorney says he “merely patted” the former New York City Mayor “without malice to simply get his attention.”

“As we have maintained since earlier this year, Daniel Gill, who had no prior contact with the criminal legal system, did not commit any criminal act, and this outcome, which will ultimately dismiss the case in its entirety, reflects that reality,” Gill’s lawyer Susan Platis said Wednesday

“Mr. Gill looks forward to putting this incident, one which completely upended his life, behind him.”

#13  Sep 23 - UN panel finds evidence of war crimes committed by Russia

@news      By boobalo1      1 day ago

Russian troops have r*ped and tortured children in Ukraine, carried out a “large number” of executions and committed other war crimes, according to a United Nations investigation by legal experts.

Set up by the U.N. to probe the conduct of the war, the Independent International Commission of Inquiry reported its chilling findings Friday in Geneva, describing a long list of abuses and atrocities in four regions.

“Based on the evidence gathered by the commission, it has concluded that war crimes have been committed in Ukraine,” Erik Mose, the chairman of the three-member commission, told the U.N. Human Rights Council.

Mose, a Norwegian judge, said the commission has documented cases in which children have been "raped, tortured and unlawfully confined."

“There are examples of cases where relatives were forced to witness the crimes," he added. "In the cases we have investigated, the age of victims of s*xual and gendered-based violence ranged from four to 82 years."

#14  Sep 23 - FL math teacher is fired after he put students in chokeholds & called them names!

17:41 22 Sep 2022, updated 17:42 22 Sep 2022

A Florida middle school math teacher was fired after he grabbed students in chokeholds and giving them cruel nicknames, such as 'four-eyes,' 'Oompa Loompa,' and 'Beavis.'

Victor Lopez, 49, of Boynton Beach, was fired from Loggers' Run Middle School on Wednesday after an investigation found he had behaved 'inappropriately' with 16 students.

Twelve of the 16 students reported he had engaged in inappropriate physical contact, WPTV reported. Eight out of the 16 students were also reportedly receiving end of inappropriate comments or jokes they didn't find funny.

The teacher started at the school in September.

Lopez - who has worked for the district for 16 years without incident - has been put on an unpaid suspension and will be officially terminated on October 18 if he doesn't appeal in writing.

The investigation started around September 1 after a student complained to his mother that Lopez had pulled his ear in class in late August, according to The Palm Beach Post.

He also reportedly showed his mother a video of Lopez hitting the student in the arm with a yardstick, the Post reported.

Within days of reporting the incident, the school police were able to identify three other victims who had been hit with a yardstick by Lopez.

The student had started recording the interaction with Lopez on his school-issued laptop because he anticipated the slap when he told his teacher hadn't finished the homework, he told investigators. He said he was embarrassed by the interaction.

The student also told authorities that Lopez often did this and said the yardstick with blue tape on the end was used to hit students.

Lopez was described as 'aggressively "tapping" [the student] on the inner arm, then immediately "tapping" him a little lighter in the upper arm.'

Another student told investigators that he ran away from his seat when he saw the teacher approaching him with a raised ruler because he has 'seen Lopez hit other students with the ruler and he was scared.'

A different student said Lopez struck him after he translated for Portuguese-speaking students, because 'Lopez thinks they are socializing.' The same student also said he was hit twice in the leg with a ruler for answering a question wrong.

The math teacher admitted to investigators that he did use a yardstick in his class, but said he only 'tapped' them with it, according to the investigation report, viewed by The Palm Beach Post.

In addition, he allegedly grabbed a female student forcibly by the back of the neck on August 31, which a colleague reported, according to the Post.

The interaction, which was reportedly caught on surveillance footage, showed Lopez dropping his hand when the other teacher appeared.

The student told investigators that Lopez was mad at her because she had chosen to use the restroom at a farther bathroom and when she attempted to explain why he told her to 'shut up,' the Post reported.

He then reportedly grabbed her by the neck and walked her to a closer bathroom.

Although she was injured, she said his grip 'hurt a little.' She also said she saw Lopez hitting her classmates at times and said it happened when he was angry or just joking.

Law enforcement charged him with battery for the incidents, but the State Attorney's Office declined to prosecute, The Palm Beach Post reported.

In a June 11 email, Lopez wrote to an HR representative: 'Honestly, the only thing I should be questioned on is my sarcasm.

'The difference this year is that I made the conscious effort to use methods that would make sure students felt safe, cared for and that I created an atmosphere where kids really wanted to learn...with an authentic feel to it.'

DailyMail.com has attempted to contact Lopez for comment. It is unclear if he plans to appeal the school board's decision.

#15 Sep 23 - NYC to set up large tents, prepare cots to house mass influx of migrants

2 people viewing this

@news      By Sin      1 day ago

The Big Apple will begin setting up large tents to house intake centers and cots for the flood of migrants arriving daily as the months-long influx from the southern border has overwhelmed city shelters, Mayor Adams announced Thursday.

City Hall laid out the plan as officials revealed that more than 2,000 additional migrants — predominantly asylum seekers fleeing Venezuela — had streamed into the five boroughs over just the last week.

That brings the total number to an estimated 13,600, the bulk of which — 10,300 — are staying in city shelters.

“More than 100 years ago, Ellis Island opened its doors to welcome in those ‘yearning to breathe free,’ ” said Hizzoner in an accompanying statement. “Now, more than ever, it’s clear that we are again dealing with a humanitarian crisis created by human hands.”

He added, “While other leaders have abdicated their moral duty to support arriving asylum seekers, New York City refuses to do so.”

The first of the emergency shelter facilities will consist of five tents set up in a parking lot at Orchard Beach in The Bronx.

It will have enough beds to house up to 1,000 adults, who officials say will stay there for one to four days as they do initial a*sessments of their health and welfare before placing them into the city’s shelter system.

The temporary buildings would be weatherized and able to withstand the cold and snow that can come with a New York winter, officials said. And they will include a dining facility and medical space.

Shelters at max

Adams’ administration declined Thursday to provide a price tag or an opening date for the new facility, but said it would be up and running within weeks. Officials also said they were working on plans to create a similar facility for arriving families, but declined to provide any additional details.

City Hall’s own initial statement said nothing about beds, but included an image of row upon row of cots lined up beneath a temporary, tent-like shelter.

The influx has pushed the scandal-scarred shelter system to the breaking point even as officials have rented space in 38 hotels across the city to try and keep up with the wave.

Migrants are expected to spend 1 to 4 days at Orchard Beach.

City Hall’s new tent push comes just days after court-appointed watchdogs — the Coalition for the Homeless and The Legal Aid Society — for the shelter system revealed the Department of Homeless Services apparently violated the Big Apple’s strict right-to-shelter protections for the second time this year.

Adams hit back, accusing the groups of playing gotcha.

The two groups predicably gave a chilly reception to Adams’ new plan, releasing a statement that said they had put “a series of questions about this proposal” to City Hall and were awaiting “their responses.”

“We are deeply concerned with any scenario in which families with children would be relegated to congregate settings,” they said. “This practice, which has been widely condemned for its adverse and dangerous impact on this uniquely vulnerable population, is already subject to legal prohibitions.”

#16 Sep 23 - Dow drops 400 points, breaks below 30,000 on fear the Fed is overdoing it

4 people viewing this

@news      By Sin      1 day ago

Stocks slumped on Friday and were on pace for another losing week as investors feared the Federal Reserve’s aggressive hiking campaign to f*ght inflation will lead to an economic downturn.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell by 408 points, or 1.36%, while the S&P 500 slid 1.7%. The Nasdaq Composite lost 2%.

Friday marked the fourth negative session in a row for the major averages, with the Dow falling below its June closing low and the 30,000 mark. The Fed on Wednesday enacted another super-sized rate hike of 75 basis points and indicated it would do another at its November meeting.

Bond yields have soared this week following the Fed’s actions, with the 2-year and 10-year Treasury rates hitting highs not seen in over a decade.

Goldman Sachs cut its year-end S&P 500 target because of rising rates, predicting at least 4% downside from here.

Stocks positioned to suffer the most in a recession have led this week’s losses with the S&P 500′s consumer discretionary sector off by 7%. Energy is down more than 8% as oil prices slump. Growth stocks including big technology names Apple, Amazon, Microsoft and Meta Platforms fell on Friday.

“Based on our client discussions, a majority of equity investors have adopted the view that a hard landing scenario is inevitable and their focus is on the timing, magnitude, and duration of a potential recession and investment strategies for that outlook,” wrote Goldman Sachs’ David Kostin in a note to clients.

The major averages are on pace for their fifth decline in the last six weeks and on track to close out the week with losses. The Dow has given up about 3.5% this week, while both the S&P and Nasdaq have fallen 4.4% and 4.6%, respectively.

In other news, the pound hit a fresh more than three-decade low against the U.S. dollar after a new U.K. economic plan that included a slew of tax cuts rattled markets.

PALM BAY, Fla. — A Central Florida police officer is in jail accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a 13-year-old.

Archer’s arrest warrant says the Palm Bay officer met the child on the Snapchat and the MeetMe apps in August.

Archer is accused of having s*x with a 13-year-old girl twice while he was on duty.

He is behind bars in the Brevard County Jail.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement began investigating this week after learning of the allegations.

Archer is charged with two counts of lewd or lascivious battery.

Records show Archer was with the agency for nine months.

He is scheduled to make his first appearance in a Brevard County courtroom Thursday afternoon.

#18 Sep 17 -Second suspect arrested after video showed 2 women shooting at homes

BEXAR COUNTY, Texas – Deputies have arrested a second person in connection with a viral video showing two women driving around and recklessly shooting in a west Bexar County neighborhood, with some of the bullets even going through a child’s bedroom, according to the sheriff’s office.

Fugitive Apprehension Unit deputies arrested 20-year-old Julia Castillo Gonzalez around 2 p.m. Friday in the 700 block of West Hollywood.

BCSO officials said deputies were dispatched to Westcreek View Street at night on Aug. 24 after several witnesses reported hearing gunshots ring out.

This is a picture of a casing a family found behind their home after a bullet was found in their child’s room. They told KSAT the bullet was turned over to investigators.

As investigators uncovered more evidence, they came across a viral video showing two unidentified women recklessly shooting in the residential neighborhood while in a vehicle, BCSO said.

Deputies initially arrested 22-year-old Genesis Rodriguez (pictured below) in connection with the case on Aug. 26.

Investigators later identified the second woman in the video as Gonzalez, who was the driver of the vehicle, BCSO said.

Gonzalez is charged with deadly conduct with a firearm, a third-degree felony.

#19 Sep 15 - Big Jump: Biden approval up from 36 to 45%

President Biden’s approval rating jumped 9 percentage points in an a*sociated Press-NORC poll released Thursday as he and Democrats ride a wave of legislative wins and a drop in gas prices ahead of November’s pivotal midterm elections.

The poll found Biden’s approval rating sits at 45 percent, a spike of 9 percentage points from July. While Biden’s approval is still lower than it was for much of his first year in office, the AP poll is the latest survey to show more voters are happy with his performance.

Congress in August passed bipartisan bills to boost investments in semiconductor chip manufacturing and to provide aid to veterans exposed to toxic burn pits while serving. Democrats also passed a $750 billion bill to address climate change and lower prescription drug costs.

The AP poll also found that 27 percent of Americans believe the country is headed in the right direction, up from 17 percent in July. And 46 percent of Democrats said they feel positive about the state of the country, up from 31 percent in July.

Still, Biden faces questions from voters on his handling of the economy, according to the poll. Just 29 percent of respondents said the economy is in good shape, compared to 71 percent who said it’s doing poorly. Those numbers are marginally better for Biden than July, when 20 percent said conditions were good.

Underscoring the challenge Biden faces on the economy, data released Tuesday from the consumer price index showed inflation rose 0.1 percent in August, a relatively small increase dampened in part by plunging gas prices. Even so, prices for food, medical care and other basic needs rose at much faster rates, triggering a brutal stock market plunge and Wall Street’s worst day of losses in two years.

Biden and other officials have argued the economy is in good shape, pointing to strong unemployment numbers and declining gas prices.
The AP poll surveyed 1,054 adults from Sept. 9 to 12. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.9 percentage points.

Increased improvement in Biden’s approval rating would be a boost for Democrats, who are seeking to maintain narrow majorities in the House and Senate. Biden has ramped up his travel in recent weeks, but candidates in tight races have been split over whether to appear alongside the president.

#20 Sep 15 - Ford laying off 3,000 employees to cut costs, pay for EV transition

Ford laying off 3,000 employees to cut costs, pay for EV transition

Ford is laying off approximately 2,000 salaried employees and about 1,000 agency personnel as it looks to lead a new era of connected and electric vehicles.

"Building this future requires changing and reshaping virtually all aspects of the way we have operated for more than a century," Ford Executive Chairman Bill Ford and CEO Jim Farley said in a letter to employees on Monday. "It requires focus, clarity and speed. And, as we have discussed in recent months, it means redeploying resources and addressing our cost structure, which is uncompetitive versus traditional and new competitors."

The automaker will inform affected employees in the U.S., Canada and at Ford Business Solutions in India this week. The company will provide benefits and "significant help" to find new career opportunities.

The move comes after media reports began surfacing in July that Ford could cut up to 8,000 jobs as part of its electric vehicle production expansion.

In addition to Ford, Tesla laid off 200 workers and closed its San Mateo, California office in June. Electric vehicle startup Rivian has also slashed 6% of its workforce as part of "major" cost-cutting measures.

Other companies that have laid off employees or paused hiring include Meta Platforms, Twitter, Netflix, Spotify, Oracle and Walmart.
