Business group very concerned that Trumps tariffs will harm Arizonans

first_img Mesa family survives lightning strike to home U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) echoed Taylor’s concerns with two pointed tweets that included articles about the moves. One that said, “This is no way to treat our allies, Mr. President,” and the other saying, “Trade wars do not end well.”Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said the tariffs would be 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminum, and go into effect on Friday, as the administration followed through on the penalties after earlier granting exemptions to buy time for negotiations. Trump had announced the tariffs in March, citing national security concerns.In response, Europe and Mexico pledged to retaliate quickly, exacerbating trans-Atlantic and North American trade tensions.Ross told reporters that talks with Canada and Mexico over revising the North American Free Trade Agreement were “taking longer than we had hoped.” Talks with Europe had “made some progress” but not enough for additional exemptions, he said in a conference call from Paris.Taylor said the new tariffs will only hurt the NAFTA negotiations.“What message does it send to our friends in Mexico and Canada and around the world when comes to negotiating trade deals that we would throw a monkey wrench like this into the process right in the middle of negotiations,” he said. “It’s the wrong message, wrong time, wrong policy.” PHOENIX – President Donald Trump’s plan to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Europe, Mexico and Canada from didn’t go over well in Arizona.Garrick Taylor, senior vice president of government relations and communications for the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said Arizonans should be “very concerned for a number of reasons” about the plan the administration revealed Thursday.“This makes life more expensive for Arizonans and for Americans,” Taylor told KTAR News 92.3 FM. “We buy products made of steel, and now those tariffs, which are really taxes, get passed along to American consumers.” 21 Comments   Share   American producers, importers, exporters and consumers all will suffer, Taylor said.“This is the tit-for-tat things that happen in a trade war that is so bad for the economy,” he said.KTAR News 92.3 FM’s Kathy Cline and the Associated Press contributed to this report.

4 hurt in Toronto shooting during Raptors NBA championship festivities

first_img Sponsored Stories Top Stories “We do have people arrested with firearms and that’s the start of the investigation,” Saunders said. Asked if it was a targeted shooting or terrorism-related, police spokeswoman Allison Sparkes said the investigation was ongoing. During a speech from one of the team owners, the host of the rally interrupted the proceedings to alert the crowd to an emergency and asked for calm. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Toronto Mayor John Tory, NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard and other players were among those on stage at the time. “I want to make sure everyone stays calm,” said the host, sportscaster Matt Devlin. “This is serious. Everyone stay calm … There is an emergency being dealt with.” Those on stage remained in place and speeches resumed shortly after. Mike Mudidi said he was enjoying the celebrations when he heard screams behind him that someone had pulled out a gun. He said he froze as people started running in all directions. “I just grabbed my buddies’ hands and ran,” he said. Raptors fan Phil D’Souza said the violence left a bad taste in his mouth, and he questioned whether he would attend a similar event in the future. “You couldn’t see the shooter but it was that kind of chaos where you’re just expecting to see somebody coming around the corner. It was that kind of vibe,” D’Souza said. Another fan said the stampede was scary. “When you see a bunch of people coming at you, you don’t know what to do, whether to run or not. You don’t want to get stampeded over,” Sam Sunday said. Trudeau’s spokeswoman declined to comment on the shooting near the prime minister. “We never comment on matters relating to the PM’s security,” Eleanore Catenaro said. Tory, the mayor, thanked police for their quick response. “It is disappointing and I’m sure a source of anger for more than just me that anyone would carry a gun and discharge it at what was otherwise a joyous celebration,” Tory said in a statement. “I hope those found responsible will be held to account to the full extent that the law permits. I want to commend and thank the millions of other people who happily and peacefully celebrated our beloved Toronto Raptors.” Tory previously urged every city resident to come celebrate the Raptors’ first championship and declared Monday as “We The North Day,” after the franchise’s slogan. “Toronto, more than a million of us flooded the streets today to celebrate our Raptors,” city councilman Joe Cressy tweeted. “People of all every age, every race, every religion – our City. As awful as the shooting was and terrifying for many in the crowd afterwards, don’t let it take away from our moment.” Some 1.5 million fans withstood packed conditions to attend the parade. Nicolas Caramanna, 21, said the crowd started to get rowdy shortly after he arrived at 9 a.m. “I’m really hot and tired, but I’m going to stick around,” he said. “When else am I going to get a chance to do this?” Many others chose to miss school or work. Cypher Sabanal, 15, said his mom let him skip class to attend the celebration. John Moreira called in sick to work so he could be part of Toronto’s first celebration of this magnitude since the Blue Jays won the World Series in 1993. “I told my boss I wanted to be at the parade and he said there wasn’t much he could do if I called in sick, so that’s exactly what I did,” the 31-year-old said. As the parade inched forward – discernibly behind schedule – a number of Raptors could not help but marvel at the fan response. TORONTO (AP) – Four people were shot and wounded at a rally Monday for the NBA champion Raptors, and two people were arrested, police said. Droves of Raptors fans ran from the shooting in a stampede from the City Hall square, which was packed with tens of thousands of fans. A million or more fans earlier packed downtown Toronto for a parade for the Raptors, raising concerns about safety and overcrowding. Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders said four people suffered gunshot wounds but said none of the injuries were life-threatening. Others suffered minor injuries as they tried to get away from the shooting, said Saunders, who asked for witnesses and people who might have video to come forward and help investigators.

Theresa May A prime minister defined and defeated by Brexit

first_img Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall Top Stories In her first speech as prime minister in July 2016, May sketched out plans for an ambitious policy agenda. She spoke of giving the poor a helping hand and lifting barriers to social mobility.But Brexit soon crowded out almost all other policies.Like Cameron, May had campaigned to remain, but in office she became a champion of Brexit. “Brexit means Brexit” became her mantra — a meaningless one, said her detractors, as it emerged that undoing 45 years of ties with the bloc would be a fraught and complex process.Attempting to win the support of Conservative Brexiteers suspicious of her past pro-EU leanings, May set out firm red lines in negotiations with the EU: Britain would leave the bloc’s single market and customs union and end the right of EU citizens to live and work in the U.K.For a time, May’s resolve helped her unite the warring factions of her party, which for decades has been divided over policy toward Europe.But she then gambled on a snap election in June 2017, in an attempt to bolster her slim majority in Parliament and strengthen her hand in Brexit negotiations with the EU.The move backfired. May ran a lackluster campaign on a platform that included plans to cut benefits to pensioners and change the way they pay for long-term care — quickly dubbed a “dementia tax.” The Conservatives lost their majority, and May had to strike a deal with 10 lawmakers from Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party to stay in power. The DUP’s support became a complication when the border between Northern Ireland and EU member Ireland emerged as a major issue in Brexit negotiations. The unionist party strongly opposed special measures to ensure the border remained free of customs posts and other barriers, worrying they might weaken the bonds between Northern Ireland and the rest of the U.K.May pressed on and in November 2018 struck a divorce agreement with the EU, setting out the terms of Britain’s departure and establishing a transition period of almost two years for the two sides to work out their future relations.All that remained was for the British and European Parliaments to ratify it. And that is where May’s best-laid plans came undone.Her careful compromise of an agreement was rejected by both sides of the Brexit debate. Brexiteers felt it gave too much away and left Britain bound to EU rules. Pro-EU lawmakers wanted a softer Brexit that kept close economic ties to the bloc. In January, May’s deal was rejected by 230 votes, the biggest government defeat in British parliamentary history.Whatever her flaws, May was no quitter. Late last year she likened herself to Geoffrey Boycott, a cricketer who was famous for his dull but effective batting style. Mesa family survives lightning strike to home “Geoffrey Boycott stuck to it and he got the runs in the end,” she said.She tried again to get her Brexit deal approved, losing by 149 votes. A third attempt narrowed the margin of defeat to 48.She tried talks with the Labour Party about securing a compromise, but managed only to further alienate her own lawmakers with her concessions to the opposition. A promise to let Parliament vote on whether to hold a new EU membership referendum was the final straw.By this time, a growing number of Conservatives had concluded that May was the problem and would have to leave before Brexit could be sorted out.But she resisted the pressure, planning instead to try for a fourth time by bringing a withdrawal agreement bill to Parliament for a vote.In the end, the pressure became irresistible.“I think the most sympathetic reading of her premiership is that she was delivered a very poor hand by her predecessor, and she dealt with it very badly,” said Steven Fielding, professor of political history at the University of Nottingham.“It was unfortunate circumstances she found herself in, but she made them worse.”Copyright © The Associated Press.

LONDON (AP) — Theresa May became prime minister in 2016 with one overriding goal: to lead Britain out of the European Union.Three years on, the U.K. is still in the EU, and May’s time in 10 Downing St. is ending. She announced Friday that she will step down as Conservative leader on June 7, remaining as caretaker prime minister during a party leadership contest to choose her successor.She will be remembered as the latest in a long line of Conservative leaders destroyed by the party’s divisions over Europe, and as a prime minister who failed in her primary mission. But history may also see her as a leader who faced a devilishly difficult situation with stubborn determination. The daughter of a rural Anglican vicar, May attended Oxford University and worked in financial services before being elected to Parliament in 1997.She was quiet and diligent, but also ambitious. One university friend later recalled that May hoped to be Britain’s first female prime minister, and “was quite irritated when Margaret Thatcher got there first.”She was not a natural political campaigner; her stiff public appearances as prime minister landed her the nickname “The Maybot.” Her only touches of flamboyance are a fondness for bold outfits and accessories like brightly patterned kitten-heel shoes.But she soon established a reputation for solid competence and a knack for vanquishing flashier rivals.May served for six years in the notoriously thankless job of home secretary, responsible for borders, immigration and law and order. In 2016, she beat flashier and better-known politicians, including Brexit-backer Boris Johnson — now the favorite to succeed her — to become Britain’s second female prime minister, after Margaret Thatcher.May was the surprise winner of a Conservative leadership contest triggered when Prime Minister David Cameron stepped down after voters rejected his advice to remain in the EU, instead voting 52%-48% to leave.

More to come FTC fine doesnt spell closure for Facebook

first_img Arizona families, Arizona farms: working to produce high-quality milk PHOENIX — Facebook may be close to putting a Federal Trade Commission investigation behind it. But it faces a variety of other probes in Europe and the U.S., some of which could present it with even bigger headaches.While the $5 billion fine from the FTC, which Facebook has been expecting, is by far the largest the agency has levied on a technology company, the real worries for Facebook — and its investors and the companies that use it to advertise on its service — are the other restrictions and government oversight that might come with it. This goes for the other investigations as well, which span the globe from the European Union, Germany, and Belgium to New York, Canada and elsewhere. Natural spring cleaning tips and tricks for your home (ALASTAIR PIKE/AFP/Getty Images) The Belgian Data Protection Authority and Germany’s Federal Cartel office are also looking into Facebook’s data collection practices.— Washington D.C., state attorneys generalIf the federal investigations weren’t enough, Facebook also faces local government bodies. Attorneys general for Washington, D.C. , and California are looking into Cambridge Analytica, while the New York attorney general is investigating the company’s unauthorized collection of 1.5 million users’ contact lists. Facebook said that it is working with the New York attorney general’s office and that the collection was unintentional. It also says it is cooperating with the other attorneys general in their probes.— FBI, SECThough the scope of their involvement with the FTC investigation is unclear, Facebook has confirmed that it has received questions from the FBI and the Securities and Exchange Commission over Cambridge Analytica and that it is cooperating with the inquiry. “This fine signals that regulators are ratcheting up the pressure,” said Dimitri Sirota, the CEO of BigID, a business data privacy company, in an email.He said that the FTC action, together with recent European fines on British Airways and Marriott, shows that regulators around the world are getting bolder in cracking down on data privacy violations. Facebook may think the fine is easily affordable, he said, but it hurts its image and trustworthiness.Related LinksBreaking down the wonders of image recognition tech Google LensVictims in toner, printer scam to receive compensationLack of broadband puts Havasupai tribe, rural areas ‘in jeopardy’Beyond the regulatory investigations, Cowen analyst John Blackledge noted that Facebook and other big companies also face broader antitrust concerns .Facebook has enjoyed more than a decade of unfettered growth as Silicon Valley’s golden child, trusted to regulate itself and keep its 2.4 billion users’ interests at heart.Then came Russian meddling in the 2016 elections, fake news and the Cambridge Analytica scandal, in which a political data mining firm affiliated with the 2016 presidential campaign of Donald Trump improperly accessed the personal data of as many as 87 million users.Regulators, mainly in Europe but also in the U.S., perked up. And now Facebook faces the prospect of not only billions more in fines, but additional restrictions on its business. Top Stories Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Mesa family survives lightning strike to homecenter_img The charges came despite changes Facebook announced just a week earlier to its ad targeting system. The company had agreed to overhaul its targeting system and abandon some of the practices singled out by HUD to prevent discrimination, not just in housing listings but in credit and employment ads as well. The move was part of a settlement with the American Civil Liberties Union and other activists. But HUD didn’t join the settlement. Facebook says it continues to work with civil rights experts on the issues.— Canada’s privacy czarIn more fallout from Cambridge Analytica, Canada’s privacy head announced in April that he is taking Facebook to court after finding that lax privacy practices allowed personal information to be used for political purposes.A joint report from privacy commissioner Daniel Therrien and his British Columbia counterpart said major shortcomings were uncovered in Facebook’s procedures. It called for stronger laws to protect Canadians. Facebook says it is taking the investigation seriously.— U.K., Belgium, GermanyIn October, British regulators slapped Facebook with a fine of 500,000 pounds ($644,000) — the maximum possible — for failing to protect the privacy of its users in the Cambridge Analytica scandal. The company said it is appealing the fine, so the matter is still, technically, unresolved. — Irish Data Protection CommissionIreland’s data regulator has launched an investigation of Facebook over the Cambridge Analytica data leak last year. At issue is whether the company complied with strict European regulations that went into effect in May 2018 covering data protection. Under the new rules, companies could be hit with fines equal to 4 percent of annual global turnover for the most serious violations.The probe could potentially cost Facebook more than $2.3 billion in fines based on its 2018 revenue, or more if it makes more money this year, which is all but certain. The commission, which handles online data regulation for the European Union, has nearly a dozen open investigations on Facebook that include its subsidiaries WhatsApp and Instagram. Facebook says it is cooperating with the investigations.— U.S. Housing and Urban DevelopmentThe U.S. government charged Facebook with high-tech housing discrimination in March for allegedly allowing landlords and real estate brokers to systematically exclude groups such as non-Christians, immigrants and minorities from seeing ads for houses and apartments.The civil charges filed by the Department of Housing and Urban Development could cost the social network millions of dollars in penalties. More important, they’re already affecting the company’s business model — its ability to target ads with near-surgical precision.

He made no promises of new action to stem the flow of mostly Central American immigrants transiting Mexico to reach the U.S. border.Mexico has stepped up raids on migrant caravans travelling through the southern states of Chiapas and Oaxaca this year. It has deported thousands of migrants and frustrated thousands more who wait endlessly for permits that would allow them to travel legally through Mexico.Related LinksStocks slump after US expands trade war to MexicoUS companies are in line of fire of tariffs aimed at MexicoArizona political figures react to Trump’s plan to place tariffs on MexicoTrump imposing tariffs on goods from Mexico in immigration effort“We have to help so that they don’t enter the United States illegally, but we also have to do it respecting human rights,” López Obrador said. “Nothing authoritarian. They’re human beings.”Since taking office Dec. 1, López Obrador has espoused a longer term immigration fix focused on raising living standards and increasing opportunities so that those who he says are forced to migrate no longer have to.On Friday, he also noted that most of the immigration flow is not Mexican, but rather citizens of Central America’s Northern Triangle countries, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador. He referred to those countries’ “crises” of unemployment and violence as being the main drivers of illegal immigration. How men can have a healthy 2019 New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies MEXICO CITY — Mexico President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said Friday that Mexico won’t respond to U.S. President Donald Trump’s threat of coercive tariffs with desperation, but instead will push for dialogue.A day after Trump’s threat to impose a 5% tariff — that could increase incrementally to 25% — on all Mexican imports, López Obrador seemed convinced that Trump just needed to be informed of all that Mexico has been doing to slow illegal migration, and he dispatched Foreign Affairs Secretary Marcelo Ebrard to Washington Friday. López Obrador said that since Thursday night, he had been receiving messages of support from all sectors of Mexican society and felt great solidarity.Asked by a reporter why Mexico would not just skip the dialogue and file a complaint with an international trade body, López Obrador said it was not just a legal question. “We want to have a good relationship with the United States government.” 9 Comments   Share   López Obrador has lobbied the U.S. government and other countries to support a Marshall Plan-like development agreement focused on development in southern Mexico and the Northern Triangle.But his medium- and long-term immigration solutions are colliding with the potential short-term benefits for Trump of rallying his base during an election cycle with incendiary threats.On Friday, Trump resumed his Twitter complaints, writing: “Mexico has taken advantage of the United States for decades. Because of the Dems, our Immigration Laws are BAD. Mexico makes a FORTUNE from the U.S., have for decades, they can easily fix this problem. Time for them to finally do what must be done.”Mexico can continue to make it more difficult for migrants to cross the country to the U.S. border, though the smugglers who have plied those routes for decades would benefit from a crackdown. But sealing Mexico’s southern border with Guatemala is likely impossible. It doesn’t have the infrastructure to adequately patrol a border that includes a river passing through jungle.López Obrador has said before that Mexico can expect to take some hits from the Trump administration as the U.S. elections near.center_img On Thursday, Trump tweeted: “On June 10th, the United States will impose a 5% Tariff on all goods coming into our Country from Mexico, until such time as illegal migrants coming through Mexico, and into our Country, STOP. The Tariff will gradually increase until the Illegal Immigration problem is remedied.”The economic impact for Mexico was swift. The peso dropped more than 3% against the U.S. dollar by Friday morning.Mexico’s Banco Base warned that the announced tariffs pose a grave threat for Mexico’s economic growth outlook since 80% of its exports go to the United States.It estimated that the 5% tariff could knock 2.85 percentage points off the growth of Mexico’s exports, but that the weaker peso would help compensate.Trump’s threat came the same day that Mexico’s government announced it would begin the ratification process of the new agreement with the United States and Canada to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement and less than two weeks after Mexico successfully negotiated the lifting of steel and aluminum tariffs from the U.S. that had been a roadblock to ratifying the new trade deal. The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement was one of the Trump administration’s most touted achievements, but is now once again in jeopardy.

com?etc For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Neelima Vallangi | Updated: March 6 2016 12:03 pm Top News The snow-covered beauty of the Swiss landscape outside the window and the romance of trail travel in the gorgeous country were not lost on me but there was a slight knot in my stomach that was tightening with every passing minute For the 10th time that afternoon I replayed the words of the guide in my head to soothe my frayed nerves “If it wasn’t safe enough I wouldn’t let my four-year-old daughter go on it alone” Sound logic But I still wondered how on earth would I manage to sled down a 3 km snow track full of twists and turns without any assistance even on the first run I was in the vicinity of Grindelwald village in the Bernese Oberland region of Switzerland It was a fine winter afternoon and the snow-covered slopes were glimmering under the soft sunshine The north face of Eiger loomed large above us and the pretty chalets of Grindelwald below were laid out like colourful bricks in the monochrome visage Summers in Switzerland are known to be green and gorgeous But an inclination for visiting places during off season drew me to Switzerland in the winters earlier this year Only it didn’t feel much like off season The trains were packed and ski runs were full as were cable cars going up and down the white slopes of the mountains Unlike what I had imagined winters were definitely not a time to be indoors for the Swiss In the pursuit of some winter amusement I reluctantly signed up to slide down a 3 km long track known as Eiger run Tobogganing as it is known is probably the most fun anyone who doesn’t ski or snowboard can have in winters Arriving at Alpiglen station the train came to a slow halt and my heart began to race Pulling on another layer of winter clothes I picked up a rented toboggan waiting for me outside the station The sled was sleek and incredibly lightweight a gentle push would launch it forward Not so easy to control perhaps A wide and flattened track was winding its way through a few wooden chalets into the valley below I waited for detailed instructions but this was one of those instances where hands-on learning was the only way out I was told to use my legs to brake and pull the steering cord in my hands to turn A gentle nudge and I was on my way down the slope The toboggan glided easily and it wasn’t that hard to brake by pressing the ankle of my boots into the soft snow I was a little bit reassured A winding turn showed up next I tugged at the rope with all my might and nothing happened Worried I pushed one foot down into the snow instinctively and the sled turned in the other direction I was feeling better now I lifted both my legs off the ground and leaned back on the sled about to give in to the speed The sled picked up pace I could feel the freezing wind in my hair and trees whizzing past me in a blur It felt much like cycling fast down a mountain except I was sitting down and my legs substituted for brakes It was exhilarating and I let out a shriek of joy that came from trying something new that turned out to be incredibly fun Sledding is amazing that way — anyone can get a hang of it and enjoy it without any specialised equipment or training No wonder it is such a popular winter activity all over the world When a series of sharp switchbacks leading down into the valley came into view my heart skipped a beat I slowed down to take stock of things This could get very exciting or very scary Veering off the track and plunging headfirst into the valley was a real possibility now Gonzalo our guide was leading the pack and I was right behind him I decided to match his pace and follow his moves closely And that did the trick Careening down the slopes screaming like a little child I threw caution to the wind and steered the sled along the turns without slowing down much Passing under a bridge soon we were on a much wider snow track The large tract of gently rolling terrain with a decent gradient was the last section of the Eiger run Without any sudden bends this part was all about gaining speed and feeling the adrenaline rise I let my sled go into full throttle before ending the exhilarating dash at the Brandegg station The altitude difference was a little over 100m but the thrill of tobogganing downhill surely felt much more than that Only later I was told that tobogganing caused the most accidents among winter sports I could see why — the high of gliding down the steep slopes at breakneck pace can easily go to your head I’d like to think the novice in me had just the right amount of fear and caution in mind to keep my speed in check I had the most fun ever by willingly giving up
