    SAN FRANCISCO/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - As President Donald Trump keeps up his attacks on the Federal Reserve's policies, Wall Street is cautiously embracing them, giving a passing grade to the Fed's communication since its shift in January to a 'patient' approach on rate hikes.  The Federal Reserve Bank of New York surveys the main Wall Street securities companies it trades with and asks them how they would grade the Fed's communication with markets and the public since the last survey.  Roughly two-thirds of the Wall Street companies, known as primary dealers, gave the Fed a score of four or five (more effective) in the latest survey published on Thursday, while 22 percent gave the Fed a score of one or two (less effective).

  • 37/64   Fox mentions Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for 42 days running – 3,181 times
    POLITICS TOPIC NEWS

    Democrat receives 3,181 mentions on Fox News and Fox BusinessFigures suggest media obsession with congresswoman   Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appears to have replaced Hillary Clinton as conservatives’ bete noire. Photograph: Lucas Jackson/Reuters  Fox channels have mentioned the US congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for 42 consecutive days, a study has found. The 29-year-old liberal star received at least 3,181 mentions in six weeks from Fox News or its sister Fox Business, according to research by Media Matters for America, a not-for-profit media watchdog. The finding will reinforce perceptions that Fox, owned by media mogul Rupert Murdoch, is obsessed by Ocasio-Cortez, portraying her as a radical socialist who threatens the American way of life.   Sign up for the US morning briefing  She tweeted in response on Friday: “Fox News brought me up 3,000+ times in *6 weeks.* That’s how hard they’re fighting against dignified healthcare, wages, & justice for all; and turning their firepower on the youngest Congresswoman in history to do it. Too bad for them, cause we don’t flinch. #ForThePeople.” Ocasio-Cortez, who has promoted ambitious leftist policies such as a Green New Deal , has supplanted Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi as the favoured target of many conservatives.  Courtney Hagle, a researcher at Media Matters for America, said: “Ocasio-Cortez is brought up constantly, even if the topic has nothing to do with her, as with the recent terror attacks in New Zealand. Hosts and guests smear and misrepresent Ocasio-Cortez’s agenda, caricaturing it while painting it as radical, dangerous, far-left socialism.” Hagle added: “Fox figures go on extended, aggressively angry rants about her. They’ve repeatedly attacked her intelligence, used her age to discredit her, and dismissed her as a ‘little girl’.” After only three months in Congress, Ocasio-Cortez has attracted outsized coverage in general, including a Time magazine cover and a huge social media presence. She has nearly 4 million followers on Twitter. Media Matters searched Grabien transcripts for “AOC” and “Ocasio” between 25 February and 7 April.

  • 38/64   Assange Should Get What He Deserves
    POLITICS TOPIC NEWS

    Julian Assange claims that he is a journalist. My foot. He may or may not have been a paid Russian agent, but for all intents and purposes he was. His aim was to do as much damage to the United States as he possibly could. With the help of a traitor named Chelsea Manning he undermined American diplomacy and probably endangered American lives. He followed up that triumph of treachery by attempting to influence the outcome of the 2016 election, most likely working in cahoots with the Kremlin. While he did not determine its outcome, he certainly contributed to it and, in doing so, certainly did not displease his Russian collaborators.Genuine journalists do not have evil intentions. Those who leaked the Pentagon papers did so because they were concerned that the United States government was lying to its people even as thousands of young Americans were dying in the rice paddies of Vietnam. Woodward and Bernstein went after “All the President’s Men” because they discovered that the White House was obstructing justice. Assange’s objective was neither to get to the truth behind the pursuit of a war whose costs in lives and treasure were continuing to mount, or to prevent any further attempts to undermine the American system of checks and balances. His objectives were purely malign. Were his motives truly noble, he might perhaps have investigated the goings-on in Trump Tower during the summer of 2016.Assange is desperately fighting extradition to the United States because he knows that he is no different from an accomplice to Al Qaeda. Their aims are identical; both seek to weaken, if not destroy, America and the democratic system it embodies.

  • 42/64   Kim Jong-un gives Donald Trump until end of year to change attitude to North Korea nuclear talks
    POLITICS TOPIC NEWS

    Kim Jong-un said the US must change its attitude to talks by the end of this year if there was to be a third summit with Donald Trump. The North Korean leader made the comments during a speech on Friday at a session of North Korea's rubber-stamp parliament, which made a slew of personnel changes that bolstered his diplomatic lineup amid deadlocked negotiations with the United States. His speech came hours after Mr Trump and visiting South Korean President Moon Jae-in met in Washington and agreed on the importance of nuclear talks with North Korea. "We of course place importance on resolving problems through dialogue and negotiations. But US-style dialogue of unilaterally pushing its demands doesn't fit us, and we have no interest in it," Kim said during the speech. According to the Korean Central News Agency, he blamed the collapse of his summit with Trump in February on what he described as unilateral demands by the United States, which he said raised questions over whether Washington has genuine willingness to improve relations. But Kim said his personal relationship with the American president remains good and that they could exchange letters at "any time." Kim repeated earlier claims that North Korea's crippled economy would persevere through heavy international sanctions imposed over its nuclear weapons programme and that he wouldn't "obsess over summitry with the United States out of thirst for sanctions relief." The United States has said the summit in Vietnam broke down because of the North's excessive demands for sanctions relief in return for limited disarmament measures. In their first summit last June in Singapore, Mr Trump and Kim issued a vague statement calling for a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula without describing when and how it would occur. Kim said the United States has been refusing to withdraw what the North perceives as "hostile policies" while sticking to "mistaken judgment that we would succumb to maximum pressure." He said the North would not compromise on the "fundamental interests of our country and people, even by a speck," and blamed the United States for arriving in Hanoi with "completely unrealisable plans." "If the United States approaches us with the right manner and offers to hold a third North Korea-U.S. leaders' summit on the condition of finding solutions we could mutually accept, then we do have a willingness to give it one more try," he added. "We will wait with patience until the end of the year for the United States to come up with a courageous decision. But it will clearly be difficult for a good opportunity like last time to come up." Kim Jong-un poses in a photo with newly-elected members of the leadership bodies of the state at the headquarters building of the Party Central Committee in Pyongyang Credit: AFP Kim also during the speech made a nationalistic call for South Korea to support the North's positions more strongly and criticised Seoul for acting like an "overstepping mediator" between Washington and Pyongyang. Kim held three summits last year with Moon, who lobbied hard to revive the nuclear talks between the United States and North Korea. Following collapse of the Trump-Kim summit, the North had been urging the South to break away from Washington and proceed with inter-Korean economic projects that are currently held back by U.S.-led sanctions against the North. "The South should not act as an 'overstepping mediator' or a 'facilitator' and should rather get its mind straight as a member of the (Korean) nation and boldly speak up for the interest of the nation," Kim said. When asked about Kim's comments, South Korea's presidential office said Seoul is committed toward keeping the atmosphere of dialogue alive and helping negotiations between Washington and Pyongyang resume at an early date.

  • 54/64   Stratolaunch takes off: World's largest plane - with 117-metre wingspan - completes first flight
    SCIENCE TOPIC NEWS

    The world's largest airplane - a behemoth boasting six engines, two fuselages and a wingspan broader than a football pitch - made its first test flight on Saturday in California. Taking to the skies over the Mojave Desert in California on Saturday, it was the first flight for the carbon-composite plane built by Stratolaunch Systems, started by late Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, as the company enters the lucrative private space market. Designed to send humans into space at a fraction of the cost of rockets,  the white airplane called Roc took off shortly before 7 a.m. Pacific time (3pm UK time) and stayed in the air for more than two hours before landing safely back at the Mojave Air and Space Port, where a crowd of hundreds of people cheered. "What a fantastic first flight," Stratolaunch Chief Executive Officer Jean Floyd said. "Today’s flight furthers our mission to provide a flexible alternative to ground launched systems, Mr Floyd said. Thrilled to share that today the Stratolaunch aircraft flew for the first time! ? Check out the video here ? StratoFirstFlighthttps://t.co/rluHdNRtJ4— Stratolaunch (@Stratolaunch) April 14, 2019 "We are incredibly proud of the Stratolaunch team, today’s flight crew, our partners at Northrup Grumman’s Scaled Composites and the Mojave Air and Space Port." The plane is designed to drop rockets and other space vehicles weighing up to 500,000 pounds at an altitude of 35,000 feet and has been billed by the company as making satellite deployment as "easy as booking an airline flight." Saturday's flight, which saw the plane reach a maximum speed of 189 miles per hour and altitudes of 17,000 feet, was meant to test its performance and handling qualities, according to Stratolaunch. Allen, who co-founded Microsoft with Bill Gates in 1975, announced in 2011 that he had formed the privately funded Stratolaunch. The Stratolaunch aircraft has two fuselages and is powered by six Boeing 747 engines Credit: AFP The company seeks to cash in on higher demand in coming years for vessels that can put satellites in orbit, competing in the United States with other space entrepreneurs such as Elon Musk’s SpaceX and United Launch Alliance - a partnership between Boeing and Lockheed Martin. Stratolaunch has said that it intends to launch its first rockets from the Roc in 2020 at the earliest. Allen died in October 2018 while suffering from non-Hodgkins' lymphoma, just months after the plane's development was unveiled. "We all know Paul would have been proud to witness today’s historic achievement," said Jody Allen, Chair of Vulcan Inc and Trustee of the Paul G. Allen Trust. "The aircraft is a remarkable engineering achievement and we congratulate everyone involved."

Stratolaunch has said that it intends to launch its first rockets from the Roc in 2020 at the earliest. Allen died in October 2018 while suffering from non-Hodgkins' lymphoma, just months after the plane's development was unveiled. "We all know Paul would have been proud to witness today’s historic achievement," said Jody Allen, Chair of Vulcan Inc and Trustee of the Paul G. Allen Trust. "The aircraft is a remarkable engineering achievement and we congratulate everyone involved."
