  • 5/27   Avowed Apple Fan Jeb Bush Realizes His Apple Watch Can Take Phone Calls

    Jeb Bush's love of Apple products has been widely documented, and the Republican presidential candidate continues to wear his Apple Watch on the campaign trail. Yesterday, in a meeting with The Des Moines Register editorial board documented by USA Today, Bush stumbled upon a feature he didn’t realize his smartwatch was capable of: taking phone calls. Somehow Bush managed to take a call without picking up his iPhone, and the sound of a person’s voice saying hello breaks through the meeting noise, to which Bush responds, “My watch can’t be talking.”

  • 7/27   Morgan Stanley analysts say Fed to cut U.S. rates in September
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    Morgan Stanley  analysts said on Monday that they now expect the U.S. Federal Reserve to cut rates in September and then again in October.  'Trade's 'simmer' has begun to boil, business sentiment and capex (capital expenditures) have softened further, global growth remains weak and inflation expectations have fallen,' while the gap between 3-month  and 10-year U.S. government bonds  points to overly restrictive monetary policy, the investment bank's analysts said in a note.  The bank joins a number of investors betting that the Fed's first rate cut since 2008, late last month, will be the first of several moves to lower borrowing costs.

  • 9/27   U.S. Stocks Extend Drop, Treasuries Rally With Yen: Markets Wrap
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- U.S. stocks extended losses in thin trading and Treasuries rallied as political unrest in Hong Kong hit markets already on edge over trade tensions. Argentina’s peso and equities sank after voters turned on the president in a primary vote.The S&P 500 Index’s losses deepened in afternoon trading, with no apparent catalyst as the rally in Treasuries pushed 10-year yields toward 1.6%. U.S. trading started on weak footing after authorities closed Hong Kong’s airport and a Chinese official said the city was at a “critical juncture.” The Stoxx Europe 600 Index erased a 1% advance. Argentina’s Merval index plunged almost 50% on fear of a default. Corn futures plunged after data showed more of the grain was planted than analysts had estimated.The weakness in stocks fed demand for haven assets, pushing the 10-year Treasury yield lower by 10 basis points and boosting the yen for a fourth day. China’s central bank fixing continued to signal its determination to manage an orderly depreciation. Italian bonds led gains in European debt after Fitch affirmed the country’s credit rating on Friday. The pound strengthened following three sessions of declines.Monday’s reversals provided another reminder of the fragile mood across markets as it extended the tumultuous start to August. Gains for the safest government bonds show lingering caution by traders who’ve increased bets for central bank easing in recent weeks, as the U.S. and China escalate their trade war and a slew of global data point to slowing growth.“It’s a day with very little news in terms of economic calendar and earnings and a week that’s going to have a lot of earnings that are very important.

  • 10/27   Turmoil calms as Puerto Rico governor turns to policy
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    Puerto Rico's political turmoil seemed to be at least temporarily easing on Monday with attention shifting from protests to policy following the replacement governor's move to suspend a hurricane recovery contract.  In one of her first moves as governor, Wanda Vázquez announced late Sunday that she was scrutinizing a pending $450,000 contract that is part of the program to rebuild and strengthen the island's power grid, which was destroyed by Hurricane Maria nearly two years ago.  'There is no room in this administration for unreasonable expenses,' said Vázquez, who on Wednesday became Puerto Rico's third governor in a week following massive protests that resulted in political turmoil.

  • 11/27   Argentine markets fall as primary hints at Fernández return
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    Argentine stocks and currency plummeted on Monday after Argentine President Mauricio Macri was snubbed by voters who appeared to hand a resounding primary victory to a populist ticket with his predecessor, Cristina Fernández.  The preliminary results from Sunday's voting suggest the conservative Macri will face an uphill battle going into general elections in October and gives the populists who governed Argentina and butted heads with investors for most of the past two decades a strong chance of returning to power.  The result stunned financial markets which remember Cristina Fernández's 2007-2015 government when she nationalized Spanish oil company Repsol's stake in local company YPF, took over the private pension system and intervened heavily in the economy with exports restrictions and currency controls.

  • 14/27   Trump Takes Aim at Legal Immigration With Reviews on Public Aid
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- The Trump administration on Monday continued its crackdown on immigration with a new rule that could block immigrants from getting green cards if they’ve used government benefits or are found likely to use them.The 837-page regulation -- known as a “public charge” rule -- likely will fall hardest on low-income legal immigrants who perform much of the country’s menial labor on farms and in the service industry.The rule replaces current policy that says immigrants shouldn’t receive more than half their income from cash benefits, such as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families or Supplemental Security Income from Social Security.Under the new more expansive definition, immigrants aren’t supposed to use public benefits like Medicaid, public housing assistance, or food stamps for more than 12 months over a 36 month period. If they do, they risk being categorized as too reliant on government services.“We certainly expect someone of any income to be able to stand on their own two feet,” U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Acting Director Ken Cuccinelli told reporters Monday at the White House.Mexico-U.S. DealPresident Donald Trump has focused on cracking down on migrants -- one of his signature issues -- for months as his 2020 re-election campaign intensifies. The regulation, which takes effect in 60 days, has been a priority of Trump’s hard-line aide Stephen Miller.Last week, the administration said more than 30,000 migrants had been sent to Mexico to await immigration court proceedings as part of a program expanded under a June 7 deal between Mexico and the U.S.Under the new rule, the U.S. will scrutinize applications for legal permanent residency from about 400,000 people a year to determine whether they’re likely to become a public charge, Cuccinelli said.The administration’s approach likely will reshape the racial and ethnic demographic of immigration to the U.S. The Migration Policy Institute, an advocacy group, released data Monday showing about 70% of recent legal immigrants from Mexico and Central America, the Caribbean and Africa had incomes below 250% of the federal poverty line.“This is really in my perspective an attack on working middle class immigrant families being able to live in the United States,” Ur Jaddou, who served as chief counsel of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services in the Obama administration and is director of the non-profit DHS Watch said in an interview.Opponents argue the new rule will both make it harder for lower-income immigrants to remain in the country and potentially scare people from using benefits to which they’re legally entitled. They said that because the government evaluates both whether someone has used public benefits in the past and whether they’re likely to in the future, even those who don’t rely on assistance could be denied.The text of the Trump administration’s rule said it wasn’t designed to “discriminate against aliens based on age, race, gender, income, health and social status.”Cuccinelli said the rule offers clarity to government agents who evaluate immigrants’ applications, and makes it easier for those seeking permanent residency in the U.S. to understand the consequences of using public benefits.Challening the RuleLegal challenges to the new rule are likely. The National Immigration Law Center said Monday it planned to file a lawsuit against the administration. Santa Clara County, California, Counsel James Williams also issued a statement his office was reviewing the rule and exploring “all legal options” to prevent a negative effect on the community.“The rule will sow fear in immigrant communities and lead many immigrants who are here legally -- and their families -- to forgo needed health coverage, nutrition assistance and housing assistance they are eligible for,“ said Bob Greenstein, president of of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.Some proponents of the rule said it’s a step in the right direction but may not significantly cut immigration. Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, a group seeking to limit immigration, said the administration should limit the number of applications and increase education and skills standards.“I’m skeptical this is going to have much of an effect,” Krikorian said in an interview. “We need Einstein-type immigration rather than people who just have a B.A.”Cuccinelli said there would be specific exemptions for the most vulnerable populations, including children and pregnant mothers. And some programs, including student loans, won’t be counted negatively for immigrants who use them. He also said immigrants could avoid the evaluation of their likely use of public benefits by finding a sponsor willing to sign an affidavit saying they would reimburse the government for the use of public services.(Updates with comment from former immigration official in 10th paragraph.)To contact the reporters on this story: Justin Sink in Washington at jsink1@bloomberg.net;Michaela Ross in New York at mross113@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Kevin Whitelaw at kwhitelaw@bloomberg.net, Justin Blum, Joshua GalluFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

He also said immigrants could avoid the evaluation of their likely use of public benefits by finding a sponsor willing to sign an affidavit saying they would reimburse the government for the use of public services.(Updates with comment from former immigration official in 10th paragraph.)To contact the reporters on this story: Justin Sink in Washington at jsink1@bloomberg.net;Michaela Ross in New York at mross113@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Kevin Whitelaw at kwhitelaw@bloomberg.net, Justin Blum, Joshua GalluFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
