US Fed leans toward a cut; don’t expect one this week

Business Business Breaking News

WASHINGTON — As President Donald Trump’s trade wars drag on, and the global economy weakens, the US Federal Reserve is inching closer to its first interest rate cut in more than a decade. But investors hoping to see the benchmark lending rate begin
'WASHINGTON — As President Donald Trump’s trade wars drag on, and the global economy weakens, the US Federal Reserve is inching closer to its first interest rate cut in more than a decade. But investors hoping to see the benchmark lending rate begin to drop this week are almost certain to be disappointed. After preaching patience and leaving rates untouched since December, financial markets will be watching closely for a change of tone from the central bank and its chairman, Jerome Powell, and a sign the Fed is ready to step in to boost the economy. Policymakers will hold 2 days of deliberations starting Tuesday, and for now are expected to keep the key interest rate in a range of 2.25-2.5 percent. The Fed raised rates nine times in the last 3 years as the economy recovered and put millions of Americans back to work, and officials repeatedly said they expected the growth to continue. But Trump’s aggressive tariff policies have shaken confidence, and some central bankers have begun to acknowledge a chill in the air. The consensus is that the Fed is poised to switch directions and begin cutting rates. The only question is when. James Bullard, president of the Fed’s St Louis regional branch, was the first to make the move, saying early this month that a rate cut could be needed “soon.” Just days later, Powell himself opened the door to a possible move, saying the Fed would do whatever necessary “to sustain the expansion” — a noticeable shift in posture. Then Fed Vice Chair Richard Clarida added to the mix the possibility of “insurance cuts” — preemptively lowering rates just in case the economic outlook starts to deteriorate. Wall Street welcomed this dovish talk, which drove a recovery in stocks after the rout in May. Futures markets as of Friday were forecasting as many as three cuts for this year, in July, September and December. “In the old days, we’d have used the language the Fed has an easing bias,” John Ryding, chief economist at RDQ Economics, told AFP.  “They are predisposed to cut.” IT’S COMPLICATED Since the Fed’s last announcement at the end of May, the world’s largest economy has continued to send mixed signals. But beyond the strictly economic factors are the political ones as Trump continues to flout tradition, repeatedly hammering Powell and the Fed on Twitter and in public comments for undermining his bid to supercharge the US economy. In an interview with ABC, Trump acknowledged that his vocal criticism puts Powell in a box but said he would persist because he disagrees “entirely” with the Fed’s policy. “I’m gonna do it anyway because I’ve waited long enough,” Trump said in the interview due to be aired Sunday. Powell steadfastly repeated that central bankers pay no attention to political pressure. But criticism of the independent Fed can backfire, pushing officials to resist Trump’s preferred course in order to prove they cannot be browbeaten — even if a rate cut is justified. In the absence of inflation pressures, the Fed has room to cut interest rates. But the timing remains in question, especially as most policymakers have said they expect the economy to pick up later this year. WALKING A TIGHTROPE  Surveys of consumer confidence and business activity are running hot, unemployment is still near 50-year lows, and consumer spending continues apace.  But elsewhere the news has not been so good. Economic growth in the second quarter could be half the pace of the first, the manufacturing sector has continued to weaken and business investment has declined. And Trump warned he could jack up tariffs on another $300 billion in Chinese goods, something that would no doubt send shockwaves through the global economy. At the same time, recession indicators are flashing. The New York Fed puts the odds of a recession in the coming year at about 1 in 3 — the highest since May 2008. Oxford Economics said there is a 53 percent chance in the next 6 months, but warns that markets may be “excessively pessimistic.” However, many of these readings are noisy and could reverse course in the coming months. This leaves the Fed walking a tricky line, showing a willingness to cut rates if needed without committing to it. “I think that Fed officials have done the right thing,” Kathy Bostjancic, chief US financial economist at Oxford Economics, told AFP, noting there are no “hard data” yet that clearly call for a cut. “They essentially said they were listening to the markets and opened the door to a rate cut without promising one.”'

'Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving reportedly huddled in New York City to talk about joining forces with the same team in free agency. Ric Bucher of Bleacher Report said Friday on “The Herd with Colin Cowherd” on Fox Sports Radio that the meeting between the two basketball superstars likely means Durant won’t be returning to the Golden State Warriors. Durant has been in New York City since traveling there to have surgery for a ruptured Achilles he suffered Monday in Toronto during Game 5 of the NBA Finals. READ: Masai-and-Kawhi combo lead Raptors to 2019 title He is expected to miss the 2019-20 season. “I’m told Kevin Durant is out of the hospital, moved into a hotel for the time being in the New York area, and him and Kyrie have met and have continued to discuss playing together next season. KD has moved all his stuff and will spend his summer in New York,” Bucher said.  “… Every indication says KD is making plans to be elsewhere because obviously Kyrie will not be joining the Warriors any time soon.” Multiple reports in recent days said Irving intends to leave the Boston Celtics when he becomes a free agent on June 30, with the Brooklyn Nets predicted to be his desired destination. Brooklyn has one slot available for a max contract, but Ian Begley of SNY reported a second spot could open up if the Nets don’t bring back point guard D’Angelo Russell.

Part One: Reflections of a Private School Mom – The Important Years

Lifestyle Thrive Global

'According to PsychologyToday , the first five years of a child’s life are crucial to their outcome—towho they will become as adults. They are THE IMPORTANT YEARS. It’s whenneurological function develops, sensory and behavioral tendencies solidify, andattitudes and beliefs are formed. It’s nature. It’s nurture. It’s important. That sounds vital and worth paying attention to, which causesme to deeply reflect on the first five years of my children’s lives andhow much they contributed (or not) to who they have become as young adults. And/Or…howmuch I influenced (or messed up) their outcome during these important years. My hypothesis is that the first five years are indeedimportant, but that they are not as important as the more importantyears or even as important as the most important years, all of which Iwill explore in this series. As I layout my theory on child-raising, and as you reflect uponyour own child or children’s lives, you can decide for yourself. Which years doyou think are the most important? And, more importantly, how can you continue tooffer guidance and encouragement without controlling, manipulating or forcingthe hand of your child to live up to your wishes? Just so you can casuallymention at the next cocktail party…my son/daughter got into (INSERT TOP COLLEGEHERE). My children just turned 25,27 & 28. Here is what they are doing today. First Born/Female: Working for a leading global tech company and has lived all over the world. Is about to start an MBA program at a leading University. You can probably guess which one. Second Born/Male : Living in a community with other like-minded individuals of all ages. Days are filled with volunteering, advancing life skills, fun activities and friendship. Third Born/Male: College graduate. A top athlete in college. Has completely changed direction by pursuing something he has secretly always loved. Has no idea how it’s going to turn out. As you can surmise, they are close in age but radicallydifferent. So how did the first five years contribute to such diversity,success or what you may think of as a lack thereof? First of all, no two children are alike, as much as we mighttry to put them in the same box. After all, if we had them, they must havecommonality, which means that the way we raise them should be consistent andproduce consistent results. Results. Is that what we are all seeking when webring our little babes into this world? Dare I say, yes? When my first child was born, I was working in New York Cityand living in Connecticut. 54 minutes on the train to Grand Central Station andthen across town in snowstorms, hot humid days and pouring rain until I reachedmy office at a global television network. I was so excited to be having my first child. Scared as helltoo. #1: I didn’t take any prenatal classes. Why? Two reasons. A.No time. B. My mom had four kids in four years and then a fifth 6 years laterand she never took classes. So… I figured that I’d just figure it out. Do Iregret that decision? No, and yes. No because when you have a baby, you do whatyou’re going to do regardless of what you’ve been taught in a class. You are inthe moment completely and that is all you think about. Yes, because I didn’t havea built-in group of birth moms where I could start playgroups or have coffee togetherwith our new bundles of joy. That was a mistake. However, I soon was pregnant with my second child (born 15months later to the chagrin of my employer) and while on maternity leave, myhusband and I decided to move back to San Francisco. What was the first thing Idid before figuring out what I was going to do for work in SF? I met my neighborsand started a play group. There were four of us, and three of us are still friends tothis day. I had to let go of my friendship with one of the moms because, well,she changed, and I didn’t want that in my life anymore. But that’s OK. My third child was born in the Bay Area and he soon becamepart of the group. In fact, we all ended up having three children. The great thing about playgroups and the first five years, wasthe connection to other moms. When you have a baby (or three) you often feelalone, especially if you don’t have family in the area. And you need friends. My biggest piece of advice during the first five years is tomake some mom friends who have babies too. In addition to my tightknit playgroup, I joined a specialplayground in a posh area of my community that was application only. I met lotsof moms there too. But I didn’t like what I was seeing and hearing. I was a public-schoolkid from New Jersey and these moms were already talking about being on the listof the ‘right’ private nursery school. One mom in the private playground was stillpregnant with her first and was already on the list! This didn’t sit well with me. I toured the ‘right’ schooland was turned off immediately. Why? It was too scheduled. Too focused onresults. I chose a little Lutheran pre-school where the kids had tons of freeplay, sang every day and put on lots of plays. To me, exploring and expressingwere the key to a great childhood. Maybe I was trying to recreate my own. I hadso much free playtime as a child, it was amazing. Now I’m sure my mom wasnearby at that age, but I never saw her. So, my second piece of advice is to not follow the crowd. Dowhat feels right for you and your child. Happy. That is the key. I sent all three of my children to this simple pre-schooland while they may not have learned the Fibonacci sequence at age 3, they werehappy. #3: I put them in activities. Now, I know parents who hadcoaches for their children in every sport or art by the time they were 4 to seewhat they were good at so that they could get into (INSERT NAME OF TOP COLLEGEHERE). Some did. Some were devastated when they didn’t. I put each of my children in an activity that seemed to fittheir personality. My daughter was a performer and ballet made the most sensebecause she would learn poise, confidence and performance. My eldest son was ½ his life behind already, so I put him inhorseback riding because I read that there was a positive correlation betweenbrain development and horseback riding. This was in between speech lessons ofcourse. I also sang to and with him all the time. I did this with all mychildren. I think singing helps with learning, memory and happiness. I put my youngest son in Tae Kwon Do because he couldn’t sit still. It made sense. To get his black belt he had to remember 2,000 moves. Now that’s discipline. I figured that if he could control his body and emotions, he could be happy in any situation. He got his black belt at age 9 and then moved on to tennis where he played through college and coaches on the side now. So, my advice for the first five years and what worked for my family. #1: Make other mom friends with young babies. #2: Don’t follow the crowd just to get results. Do what feels right for your child. #3: Get involved in an activity and don’t over schedule. #4: Encourage free play. #5: Sing a lot. In the next installment, I’ll talk about THE MORE IMPORTANT YEARS which is when the pressure really kicks in. Public school or private school? Tutors? Coaches? Parental involvement? How much is too much? What is right for your child? Are you helicopter parent, a tiger mom or a snowplow? You’ll soon find out…'

Democrats Look To Repeal Justice Department Rule Barring Indictment of Sitting President

(Mandel Ngan / AFP / Getty Images) While a decades-old internal Justice Department guideline protects a sitting president from being indicted by the federal government, some congressional Democrats appear to be weighing legislation to repeal this rule.The informal rule has come under heavy criticism in recent weeks after special counsel Robert Mueller cited it as a reason for not bringing any obstruction charges against President Donald Trump. “In response to the special counsel’s report, Democrats are piecing together a package of legislation focused largely on shielding elections from foreign influence, including proposals to bar candidates from accepting foreign help of any kind, while making it mandatory that campaigns alert the FBI when such offers are extended,” The Hill reported Saturday.But that’s not all. \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t.bsaProContainer-1 {\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\tdisplay: none;\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t}\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t Some Democrats also want to use the legislative process to nullify the long-standing rule that says sitting presidents can’t be federally indicted.TRENDING: Employees Turn Their Backs on Ag Secretary in Silent Protest as He Announces Decision To Move Two Agencies “It’s definitely on the menu,” Virginia Democrat Rep.Gerry Connolly, who’s on the Oversight and Reform Committee, told The Hill. \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t.bsaProContainer-1 {\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\tdisplay: none;\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t}\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t “I’m in favor of expanding enforcement tools and accountability tools, and that’s definitely one of them,” he said.New York Democrat Rep.Hakeem Jeffries echoed that sentiment, calling such legislation a “reasonable thing to do.” “It’s fair to say that one of the options we should consider is revisiting that Department of Justice rule so you don’t have a rogue and lawless president immunized from criminal prosecution,” Jeffries, chair of the House Democratic Caucus, told The Hill.Do you think a sitting president should be indicted? 0% (0 Votes) 0% (0 Votes) The Hill noted it’s unclear how the measure could be introduced, whether it be in a spending bill “or as an authorization bill out of the House Judiciary Committee.” Regardless, Connolly said “it will be a topic of discussion.” But some Democrats aren’t so sure it’s such a good idea.Democrat Rep.Maxine Waters of California, for instance, said such a proposal might not be as effective as Democrats hope, suggesting officials within Trump’s own Justice Department would be hesitant to charge him with a crime. “That’s why we have impeachment ,” Waters told The Hill. “Because when the president is unfit — and it doesn’t have to be criminal — when the Congress decides that he’s not fit to be president, then that’s what impeachment is for.That’s what we’re supposed to do.” RELATED: House Democrats Are Reportedly Turning Against Nadler over Handling of Mueller Report Hearings The DOJ policy in question comes from a 1973 memorandum from the DOJ’s Office of Legal Counsel, written while then-President Richard Nixon was mired in the Watergate scandal “A President may not be able fully to discharge the powers and duties of his office if he had to defend a criminal prosecution,” the document reads.In 2000, after then-President Bill Clinton was impeached, the DOJ noted that “the conclusion reached by the Department in 1973 still represents the best interpretation of the Constitution.” Last month, Mueller cited this rule in explaining why he did not charge Trump with a crime. “The Special Counsel’s Office is part of the Department of Justice and, by regulation, it was bound by that department policy,” he said . “Charging the president with a crime was therefore not an option we could consider,” Mueller added.We are committed to truth and accuracy in all of our journalism.Read our editorial standards .

Golden Knights’ ideal draft pick could be goalie Spencer Knight

Team Leopold defeated Team Langenbrunner 6-4.(Photo by Nick Wosika/Icon Sportswire) (Icon Sportswire via AP Images) His last name is Knight, for criminy sakes. It’s perfect! Spencer Knight is a match made in marketing heaven for the Golden Knights, with all kinds of promotional possibilities. He’s also the top-ranked goaltender entering the NHL draft and could be available for the club with the 17th overall selection when the first round takes place Friday in Vancouver, British Columbia. “I’m not really worried about where I go,” Knight said at the NHL Combine. “At the end of the day, there’s nothing different about you regardless of where you go. For me, I just want to take it all in. There’s obviously a lot of good players, and people ask them about the draft after a couple years of being in the NHL and they say they wished they enjoyed it more. So, for me, I just really want to do that.” Knight, 18, set the U.S. National Team Development Program record for career victories (59) and went 32-4-1 with a 2.36 goals-against average and .918 save percentage for a loaded NTDP squad this past season. His 32 wins matched the single-season program record held by Vancouver Canucks prospect Thatcher Demko. But similar to the NFL and running backs, NHL teams often are reluctant to invest a first-round pick on a goaltender. Since 2012, when Andrei Vasilevskiy and Malcolm Subban went 19th and 24th, respectively, two goaltenders have been taken in the first round — Washington’s Ilya Samsonov (22nd in 2015) and Dallas’ Jake Oettinger (No. 26 in 2017). The last netminder selected in the top 10 of the draft was Carey Price, who went fifth overall to Montreal in 2005. The 6-foot-3-inch, 193-pound Knight appears to be one of the rare first-round exceptions, as he impressed scouts during the physical testing at the combine and is regarded as an elite athlete at the position. The Knights eventually need to find the heir apparent to Marc-Andre Fleury, who turns 35 in November and is at the start of a three-year contract. Knight is headed to Boston College and won’t be ready for the NHL anytime soon. If the Knights look elsewhere in the first round, here are seven skaters (in alphabetical order) worth watching: Thomas Harley, D, Mississauga (OHL) — The native of Syracuse, New York, was named best offensive defenseman and most improved player in the Ontario Hockey League Eastern Conference coaches’ poll after he posted 58 points (11 goals, 47 assists) for the Steelheads. Harley, 17, finished No. 11 among North American skaters in the NHL Central Scouting Bureau rankings, and as one of the youngest prospects in this draft class, he is projected to fill out his 6-3, 193-pound frame. Peyton Krebs, C, Kootenay (WHL) — The touted playmaker was projected as a possible top-10 pick until he suffered a partial Achilles tear during training this month and underwent surgery. He is expected to make a full recovery, but the Knights could benefit if he slips. Krebs (5-11½, 183 pounds) had 19 goals and 48 assists while playing for one of the worst teams in the Western Hockey League, which made it difficult for scouts to evaluate him. He was 10th in the final CSB rankings for North American skaters. Raphael Lavoie, F, Halifax (QMJHL) — Opinions vary on the 6-4, 199-pounder, who pumped in 20 goals in 23 postseason games to help the Mooseheads reach the Memorial Cup final. Lavoie is regarded as a good skater for his size and was named the best pro prospect in the Quebec junior league. But he also is one of the oldest players in this class — he turns 19 on Sept. 25 and was 10 days shy of being eligible for the 2018 draft — and a modest regular season (32 goals, 41 assists in 62 games) turned off some scouts. Alex Newhook, C, Victoria (BCHL) — A native of Newfoundland, Newhook played in the Junior A British Columbia Hockey League rather than major junior to maintain his college eligibility. The Boston College commit had a league-leading 102 points in 53 games — 18 more points than the next closest player. Newhook (5-10½, 192) is an explosive skater and tied with Krebs as Team Canada’s leading scorer at the Under-18 World Championships with 10 points in seven games, but he needs to improve his shot. Victor Soderstrom, D, Brynäs IF (Sweden) — There’s no consensus on the next-best defenseman after projected top-five pick Bowen Byram, with some draft boards preferring the 6-foot, 182-pound puck mover and others liking fellow Swede Philip Broberg, Harley, Moritz Seider of Germany or American Cam York. Soderstrom was the No. 3 European skater in the final CSB rankings and is a right shot, which is coveted by scouts. He posted four goals and seven points in 44 games as a 17-year-old in the Swedish pro league. Ryan Suzuki, C, Barrie (OHL) — Yes, he’s the younger brother of Nick Suzuki, which would make them some sort of hockey Eskimo brothers if he’s also selected by the Knights in the first round. Ryan Suzuki (6-0¾, 180) had 25 goals and 75 points in 65 games and is regarded as an elite playmaker. But he dropped from 10th among North American skaters in the CSB midterm rankings to 18th, and his tendency to drift on the perimeter is a concern. Cam York, D, U.S. National Team Development Program — The Southern California native set a USNTDP record for defensemen with 65 points (14 goals, 51 assists), and his playing style has drawn comparisons to Toronto’s Morgan Rielly. He is the No. 12 skater in the CSB North American rankings. The knock against York is his lack of size (5-11¼, 172 lbs) and whether the Michigan commit will hold up against stronger opponents in the defensive zone.
