New York’s smallest businesses will no longer be supervised by police

The era of New York Police Department (NYPD) officers supervising, arresting, and fining street vendors in New York City is officially over.

On Friday, Jan. 15, the city’s Department of Consumer and Worker Protection (DCWP) officially took over the responsibility of responding to food vending permits, health code violations, and vendor operations from the NYPD.

At-risk demographics

Street vendors are among some of America’s most vulnerable businesspeople, due to their impermanent locations, changing weather conditions, often low annual wages, and multitude of safety risks. Many of the operators in New York are immigrant Hispanic residents who commute from outer boroughs with incomes that have to support multiple people, according to a 2019 survey by the Street Vendor Project. There has also been a cap on the number of vending permits since the 1980s, according to New York Magazine’s Grub Street, resulting in inflated prices on the black market and multi-year waiting lists.

A long path to changes

In June of last year, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio said moving oversight to the consumer agency would allow police officers to focus on major areas of crime, according to local news station ABC 7.

“Having Department of Consumer and Worker Protection coordinating the City’s vending policy and enforcement efforts strikes the right balance as we rethink how law enforcement resources are used in our city,” he said. “DCWP has a strong record of protecting New Yorkers, and I’m confident they’re up to the task.”

The approval came through last December, more than a year after a video went viral of NYPD officers arresting a churro vendor inside a Brooklyn subway station.

Garnering more than 2.5 million views in two days, the incident sparked outrage, including among lawmakers, on behalf of the city’s estimated 20,000 street vendors and prompted a protest. Six months later, de Blasio announced cops would stop ticketing vendors. But there were concerns about steeper fines and arrests, as well as reports of NYPD officers still issuing tickets months later.

A wider shift towards tolerance

In addition to police harassment and discrimination; street vendors have reported excessive fines and expensive permit fees in cities like Chicago, Miami, and Los Angeles.

The question of whether street vending should be enforced by police officers and Friday’s official supervision shift to a city agency follow increased awareness and discussion about the disproportionate funding police departments in many major US cities receive compared to education, public health, or social work programs.

Black communities, civil rights groups, lawmakers, and medical researchers have been pointing out this discrepancy for years. However, protests across the US in response to the death of George Floyd by a police officer in Minneapolis in May 2020 also raised awareness and helped further highlight the disproportionate arrests of Black and Hispanic Americans in many major cities.

Feeding an army in D.C.: Chef José Andrés steps in to help feed huge influx of National Guard

Early Saturday afternoon on a partially cordoned-off street in Washington, D.C., Peter Baca pushed a big stack of boxes containing thousands of cookies toward the doors of Jaleo, a Spanish-inspired tapas restaurant that famed chef and humanitarian José Andrés opened in 1993.

Inside, workers with World Central Kitchen — Andrés’ emergency response nonprofit — were busy assembling meals for thousands of troops guarding the city in anticipation of President-elect Biden’s inauguration Wednesday and in reaction to the pro-Trump mob that on Jan. 6 stormed the U.S. Capitol.

Baca, of the veteran-focused Dog Tag Bakery in Georgetown, said his cookie gift was “a small token to say how much we appreciate their service to our country.”

Federal officials are scrambling to catch those responsible for the deadly attacks — five people, including a Capitol police officer, died — and prevent future violence by turning downtown Washington into a fortress, with more than 20,000 National Guard troops and thousands more police officers and federal agents manning roadblocks and checkpoints.

The swiftness of the mobilization resulted in less-than-perfect circumstances for the soldiers, with hundreds of Guard members forced to rest on the marble floors of the U.S. Capitol in between shifts.

World Central Kitchen’s CEO Nate Mook said when he and Andrés saw viral images of the sleeping troops, they felt like they had to do something.

“This is a situation that nobody’s had to face before; it’s being figured out minute by minute,” Mook said. “And we know — because we see this in all types of crises and emergencies — that food can sometimes be an afterthought, and sometimes people are left working long shifts without food.”

So, they reached out to government leaders, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and offered to tap their expertise in feeding large groups of people at a moment’s notice, as they did after Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico in 2017.

The officials took them up on their offer. They started handing out meals Friday night. By Saturday evening, the organization had distributed about 4,000 meals. They planned to repeat the effort Sunday, and don’t plan on halting the special mobilization until Inauguration Day, he said.

In a show of thanks, Pelosi joined Andrés on Saturday in passing out meals and thanking the troops, who seemed surprised and elated to be getting a free lunch from a famed chef instead of a pre-packaged military meal.

“This is a really difficult time; folks are working long shifts,” Mook said. “They were so happy to get some fresh food to eat.”

Pelosi tweeted that it was her honor to hand out meals “to our heroic National Guard troops who are keeping our Congressional community safe during this difficult time.”

The meals are being paid for by World Central Kitchen, which operates on donations, including local gifts like the one from Dog Tag Bakery. The government is not paying for the food.

Andrés has been tweeting about the initiative.

“I know there’s a lot of concern about the Guard…but our city & many restaurants are making sure everyone is taken care of!” Andrés wrote after handing out meals of hot stew Friday night.

He included a video, in which a masked lieutenant in the Pennsylvania National Guard gave thanks to the local community for the support.

“You’ve been going out of your way to take care of us, giving donations, food, coffee, things like that to help support the troops, and we really do appreciate it, guys,” the lieutenant said. “Thank you so much.”

Late Saturday, a political commentator tweeted that he ran into a National Guardsman and asked if his team was being fed.

“Yes sir,” the man replied. “@chefjoseandres already brought us something.”

Asia shares inch up as U.S. stimulus hopes boost sentiment

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Asian shares rose on Friday, brushing off a late Wall Street dip as expectations of large U.S. stimulus under President-elect Joe Biden shored up sentiment while oil prices perked up on upbeat Chinese trade figures.

President-elect Biden will unveil a $1.9 trillion stimulus package proposal designed to jump-start the economy and speed up the U.S. response to the coronavirus pandemic, officials said on Thursday.

While U.S. stocks spent most of the trading session in positive territory, helped by the stimulus hopes, some concerns about the details of the package led to a modest decline towards the end of Wall Street trade.

“The concern is what it’s going to mean from a tax stand point,” said Tim Ghriskey, chief investment strategist at Inverness Counsel in New York.

“Spending is easy to do but the question is how are you going to pay for it? Markets often ignore politics but they don’t often ignore taxes.”

In Asia, investors held a broadly more optimistic with Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 up 0.2%, Japan’s Nikkei 225 0.3% higher and South Korea’s KOSPI inching up 0.2%.

Investors had also kept an eye on Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell, who struck a dovish tone in comments at a virtual symposium with Princeton University.

Powell said the U.S. central bank is not raising interest rates anytime soon and rejected suggestions the Fed might start reducing its bond purchases in the near term.

“The Fed wants to talk down rates and it would be interesting if it steps in to buy long-dated securities and if the bond market breaks because of that,” Ghriskey said.

On Wall Street, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.22%, the S&P 500 lost 0.38%, and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 0.12%.

On Friday, earnings season will kick into full swing with results from JPMorgan, Citigroup and Wells Fargo. Investors will be looking to see if banks are starting to take down credit reserves, resume buybacks, and provide guidance that shows the economy is improving, said Thomas Hayes, chairman of Great Hill Capital in New York.

“The markets want to see if they are showing confidence. If the guidance is strong, it shows we can sustain this move,” Hayes said.

Meanwhile, oil prices rose on Thursday, boosted by a weak dollar and bullish signals from Chinese import data despite renewed concerns about global oil demand due to surging coronavirus cases in Europe and new lockdowns in China.

Brent crude oil futures rose 36 cents, or 0.6%, to settle at $56.42 a barrel. U.S. crude ended 66 cents, or 1.3%, higher at $53.57.

Treasury yields edged higher in anticipation of the new stimulus package. Benchmark 10-year Treasury notes last fell 12/32 in price to yield 1.1292%, from 1.088% late on Wednesday.

S&P Dow Jones retire le groupe pétrolier chinois CNOOC de ses indices boursiers

Le S&P Dow Jones, qui gère les indices boursiers à Wall Street, a annoncé que le groupe pétrolier national chinois CNOOC n’était désormais plus éligible à ces indices suite aux sanctions annoncées par le Trésor américain.

Les titres de China National Offshore Oil Corp’s (CNOOC) cotés à Wall Street sous la forme d’« ADR » (American Depositary Shares), des titres attribués aux entreprises étrangères, seront ôtés des indices le 21 février, indique un communiqué de S&P Dow Jones Indices.

Le Trésor avait placé le 8 janvier le géant pétrolier chinois sur la liste noire des entreprises « menaçant la sécurité nationale » car soupçonnées de liens avec le complexe militaire chinois.

Le département du Commerce jeudi a aussi mis CNOOC à l’index, considérant que l’entreprise aide la Chine « à intimider ses voisins en mer de Chine méridionale ».

Le titre CNOOC a ignoré jeudi ces mesures, grimpant à la Bourse de New York de plus de 5%, à 102,73 dollars à 16H00 GMT.

Un autre groupe public chinois, Skyrizon, spécialisé dans le secteur aérien, est aussi dans le collimateur du département du Commerce qui va en restreindre les échanges.

Skyrizon est accusé par l’administration américaine d’« acquérir et d’adapter des technologies militaires étrangères » ce qui « pose une menace significative à la sécurité nationale américaine ».

Ces mises à l’index ajoutent un nouvel épisode aux tensions entre Pékin et Washington sur le front de la guerre commerciale mené par Donald Trump contre la tech chinoise accusée d’être mêlée au développement du complexe militaire chinois.

Trois sociétés de télécoms chinoises ont la semaine dernière été bannies de la bourse new-yorkaise, China Mobile, China Telecom et China Unicom (Hong Kong).

Las acciones de Twitter se desplomaron tras la suspensión de la cuenta de Trump

Las acciones de Twitter sufrieron el lunes una dura caída de 5% en Wall Street (en la apertura alcanzaron el 12%), después de que la red social prohibiera permanentemente al presidente saliente, Donald Trump.

La pérdida, el valor de mercado de la empresa, fue de unos U$S 2.100 millones. 

La empresa comunicó que los mensajes del líder republicano, que tiene 88 millones de seguidores, tienen el riesgo de generar un aumento de la violencia tras el asalto sangriento al Capitolio perpetrado por fanáticos del pressidente saliente.

Twitter fue el canal preferido de Trump para amplificar los ataques contra sus rivales, comunicarse con sus seguidores y provocar a otras naciones durante sus cuatro años en el poder.

Publicidad

La medida de Twitter, pocos días antes de que Trump deje el cargo, siguió a la suspensión del presidente por parte de Facebook, cuyo fundador y director ejecutivo, Mark Zuckerberg, dijo que las publicaciones más recientes de Trump mostraron que tenía la intención de usar el tiempo restante en el cargo para socavar una transición pacífica y legal del poder.

Más perfiles cancelados

La red social Twitter informó además este lunes que ha cancelado de manera permanente más de 70.000 perfiles de su plataforma que difundían teorías de la conspiración y material relacionado con las tesis del movimiento de extrema derecha QAnon, presente entre los partidarios del presidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, que asaltaron la semana pasada el Capitolio.

“Estas cuentas se dedicaron a compartir contenido dañino asociado a QAnon a gran escala”, así como “a la propagación de sus teoría de la conspiración”, ha explicado Twitter en un comunicado, en el que también ha precisado que muchos de estos perfiles estaban gestionados por varias personas que administraban otras al mismo tiempo.

La semana pasada, la citada red social ya suspendió de manera permanente también la cuenta oficial de Trump, quien había hecho de esta herramienta su principal plataforma de comunicación.

Publicidad

Twitter justificó su cierre alegando que el presidente de Estados Unidos estaba alentando con algunos de sus mensajes a quienes acudieron al Capitolio el pasado miércoles. Una medida que fue seguida a continuación por Facebook e Instagram, quienes también cancelaron los perfiles de Trump en estas plataformas.

La supuesta incitación a la violencia por parte de Trump se ha traducido en un aumento de la presión para que abandone el cargo antes de la ceremonia de investidura. Además ha propiciado la apertura de un juicio político o ‘impeachment’ en su contra por “incitar a la insurrección”.

Asian stocks mixed after Wall St rebounds from uncertainty

BEIJING (AP) — Asian stock markets were mixed Wednesday after Wall Street rebounded, shrugging off uncertainty about a possible new attempt to impeach President Donald Trump over last week’s attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Tokyo, Australia and South Korea advanced while Shanghai and Hong Kong declined.

On Wall Street, the benchmark S&P 500 index gained less than 0.1%, recovering from the previous day’s decline.

Analysts suggested investors were more focused on President-elect Joe Biden’s economic stimulus plans after he takes office next week than on the aftermath of last week’s turmoil.

Democrats in Congress are discussing possibly impeaching Trump for encouraging supporters who attacked the Capitol, but the president has taken few official actions since then.

“Hopes are pinned on the incoming Biden administration, leveraging Democrat Senate majority, to emphatically tackle COVID,” said Mizuho Bank in a report.

The Shanghai Composite Index lost 0.6% to 3,583.95 while the Nikkei 225 in Tokyo advanced 1.1% to 28,462.78. The Hang Seng in Hong Kong shed 0.2% to 28,215.71.

The Kospi in Seoul added 0.6% to 3,141.52 and the S&P-ASX 200 in Sydney was up 0.1% at 6,686.60.

India’s Sensex opened down less than 0.1% at 49,479.37. New Zealand declined while Southeast Asian markets advanced.

Investor hopes have been boosted by the rollout of coronavirus vaccines. Markets have risen despite a spike in case numbers in the United States and some other countries.

In the United States, those hopes have been encouraged by the shift in control of the Senate from Republicans to Biden’s Democratic Party. That might reduce the likelihood of political opposition if Biden introduces a more ambitious stimulus plan. He has said he will release details Thursday.

On Wall Street, the S&P 500 rose to 3,801.19. The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 0.2% to 31,068.69. The Nasdaq composite added 0.3% to 13,072.43.

In energy markets, benchmark U.S. crude rose 57 cents to $53.78 per barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract rose 96 cents on Tuesday to $53.21. Brent crude, used to price international oils, gained 68 cents to $57.26 per barrel in London. It gained 92 cents the previous session to $56.58.

The dollar declined to 103.70 yen from Tuesday’s 103.83. The euro rose to $1.2214 from $1.2201.

English folk music to be preserved – archive, 13 January 1953

Fleet Street, Monday
After many weeks of strenuous preparation and the excitement of a two-day appearance at the Royal Albert Hall, members of the English Folk Dance and Song Society are now returning to their homes in every part of England to resume the less spectacular but, to them, more important routine of investigating and noting the traditional songs, and dances of the country.

The society started as two separate organisations, the Song Society, founded in 1898 with Elgar, Parry, and Stanford among its members; and the English Folk Dance Society, formed by Cecil Sharp in 1911, when he had already completed a good part of his enormous collection of English traditional songs, dances, and costumes. In 1932, eight years after Sharp’s death, the two bodies amalgamated. Dr Ralph Vaughan Williams is now its president.

The work of reviving the almost forgotten folklore of this country was at first regarded by the public as an esoteric pastime serving to indulge the fancy of harmless cranks. Now, however, country dancing is widely practised in schools, social organisations, and in the six hundred branches of the society in every county of England. (The Scots and Welsh have their own separate societies, though there is liaison between the three organisations.) Grants are made to the society by the Ministry of Education, local education authorities, and by private bodies, and there are more than twelve thousand individual subscribers.

Permanent staff
Cecil Sharp House, north of Regent’s Park, is the headquarters of the society, which has fifty teachers and 42 district officers as its permanent staff. The teachers visit schools, youth clubs, and the local groups to instruct them in country dancing and in general folklore. Their salaries are paid partly by the society and partly by the education authorities. Many of the pupils start at an early age, often at about six years, with singing games (of which Ring-a-Ring of Roses is the most hackneyed example) and progress first to simple dances and then to the more difficult. When they leave school a number continue their dancing in the clubs.

The district officers are responsible for co-ordinating the activities of the branches, in which most of the basic work of the society is done. Members make an exhaustive study of the traditions in their district and report any interesting discoveries to Cecil Sharp House – a new version of a song, a variation of a dance step, or an unusual costume.

Local members also organise dances, lectures, and demonstrations and are kept in contact with other areas through a magazine appearing every two months. A journal is published annually carrying articles on the latest research and discoveries and on the folklore of other countries. Every year summer schools and lecture courses are run, both for ordinary members and for the teaching staff. At these the results of the society’s researches are translated into practice and passed on by the teachers.

Extensive library
When information from the branches reaches Cecil Sharp House it is examined by the permanent staff or by members who are expert in a given field. On their judgment it will be followed up or put aside as of no interest. To help in this work there is a library of some thousands of volumes dealing with any subject remotely connected with folklore. (How does a French Larousse fit in, one wonders?) The Cecil Sharp collection is there of course, and some valuable rarities. The society owns the only first edition outside the British Museum of Playford’s The English Dancing Master, published in 1651.

To augment the library a scheme has just started, in conjunction with the BBC, to make sound recordings throughout the British Isles of folksongs, and dialect, so that permanent archives of traditional material can be formed. Two members of the society are now touring the country and it is hoped that the work of classifying and cataloguing their efforts will soon begin.

The main winter event is an annual festival held in London. As many of the local groups as possible take part and foreign teams often come to join this display – a group from Holland was this year’s guest. But most of the work is done away from the public eye and directed through the channels where it will serve the most useful purpose. One cannot help admiring an organisation that can persuade a group of boys from one of the “toughest” districts in a large seaport to dance Bonnets So Blue at the Royal Albert Hall.

Province In China On Lockdown After Biggest Coronavirus Spike In Months

Eleven million people are under lockdown in Hebei province after a new cluster of coronavirus infections.

Since Jan. 2, Hebei has reported more than 600 new positive cases, 544 of which were from the capital city of Shijiazhuang. To identify all potential patients, health officials have completed one round of mass testing of all the city’s residents, and a second one is being carried out this week.

The province also postponed its annual legislative meeting because of the flare-up. Liaoning province, which has had a small number of new virus cases this month, also postponed its meeting.

Hebei provincial authorities have doubled-down on travel restrictions and quarantine measures, hoping to contain the virus ahead of the Lunar New Year next month. Anyone leaving Hebei province must show a negative COVID test done no more than three days prior.

Public health officials blame lax regulations governing movement in the countryside and frequent visits among friends and family for the Hebei outbreak. On Monday, nearly 20,000 residents from twelve rural villages in the Gaocheng district of Shijiazhuang were bussed to government quarantines.

The Hebei flare-up is the most severe outbreak China has seen in more than five months. Dr. Zhang Wenhong, a prominent doctor who directs the infectious diseases department at a Shanghai hospital, told Chinese media the outbreak would likely continue for another month before it is brought under control.

The Hebei cluster’s first reported case was a man living in Shijiazhuang’s Gaocheng district. Contact tracing revealed he attended a wedding days before being diagnosed on Jan. 2. As the case count climbed, Gaocheng announced a series of lockdown measures, from closing schools to shutting down train stations and taxi services. Ticket sales for trains from Shijiazhuang to Beijing were suspended last week.

Provincial CDC officials have yet to name the source of this outbreak, though they say genetic sequencing suggests the current strain came from the ones prevalent in Europe. Most early cases in Shijiazhuang were found in villages near an international airport. The Hebei CDC says it’s working to determine whether the source was an asymptomatic carrier or contaminated cargo.

As of this week, three major cities in Hebei — Shijiazhuang, Xingtai and Langfang — are on lockdown, meaning residents must remain inside their residential complexes at all times.

The outbreak has alarmed China’s leadership. Hebei directly borders the capital of Beijing on all sides and a large number of its residents commute to nearby cities, including the port city of Tianjin for work. Hebei commuters must now provide negative COVID test results as well as proof of employment in Beijing to enter the capital.

Asian shares mixed as boost from US stimulus package fades

Asian shares were mixed Wednesday after a lackluster day on Wall Street, as the boost from President Donald Trump’s signing of the coronavirus relief package faded.

Benchmarks fell in Tokyo and Sydney but rallied in Hong Kong, Seoul and Shanghai.

The S&P 500 lost 0.2% on Tuesday, a day after major indexes notched their latest all-time highs after President Donald Trump signed the $900 billion economic relief package.

An effort by Trump to get bigger, $2,000 COVID-19 relief checks for individuals has stalled in the Republican-led Senate. For now, $600 checks are set to be delivered, along with other aid, in one of the largest rescue packages of its kind.

Investors have been waiting months for such help, which economists say is needed to tide the economy over as coronavirus caseloads surge, leading governments to reimpose restrictions to stem the pandemic.

Hong Kong’s Hang Seng surged 1.6% to 26,989.87, while the Shanghai Composite index advanced 1% to 3,411.44. South Korea’s Kospi jumped 1.9% to 2,837.08.

Japan’s Nikkei 225 fell 0.5% to 27,444.17, a day after it surged more than 2% to its highest level in more than 30 years. Japanese markets will be closed Thursday through the end of the week, reopening Jan. 4.

In Australia, the S&P/ASX 200 lost 0.3% to 6,682.40. Shares rose in Taiwan but fell in India and Southeast Asia.

“After a meteoric rise as risk dominoes toppled one by one this week, stocks fell back to earth a bit overnight,” Stephen Innes of Axi said in a commentary. “And while larger stimulus paychecks would always be a welcome addition to the Q1 consumption bonanza, the current stimulus level as it sits will drive US growth sufficiently higher bridging the gap when people get vaccinated and return to those activities most impacted by COVID -19 such as dining out, travelling and other personal service-related areas.”

Stocks closed modestly lower Tuesday as investors turned cautious a day after major indexes closed at their latest record highs.

The S&P 500 slipped 0.2%, in its first decline in four days as investors shifted money away from technology companies, which have been among of the biggest winners since the pandemic began.

Small-company stocks, which have been the biggest gainers this month, fell more than the rest of the market, pulling the Russell 2000 index of smaller companies 1.8% lower, to 1,959.36. It is still on track to end the month 7.7% higher, more than twice as much as the S&P 500.

The S&P 500 fell 8.32 points to 3,727.04. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 0.2%, to 30,335.67. The tech-heavy Nasdaq slid 0.4%, to 12,850.22.

With two days of trading left in 2020, the S&P 500 is up 15.4% this year, while the Nasdaq is up 43.2%.

“We’re kind of seeing the same thing we’ve been seeing, the dichotomy between where the financial markets are and where the actual economy is,” said Charlie Ripley, senior investment strategist for Allianz Investment Management.

The recent round of aid from Washington was mostly expected and it would have taken a much bigger package to really make markets jump, he said.

Treasury yields moved higher, a sign of confidence in the economy. The yield on the 10-year Treasury rose to 0.94% from 0.93% late Tuesday.

U.S. benchmark crude oil gained 16 cents to $48.16 per barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. It picked up 38 cents to $48.00 per barrel on Tuesday. Brent crude, the international standard, added 11 cents to $51.34 per barrel.

The U.S. dollar fell to 103.34 Japanese yen from 103.54 yen. The euro rose to $1.2280 from $1.2249.
