US trade gap falls 15 to 511 bn in January

first_imgWashington DC: The US trade deficit tumbled nearly 15 per cent in January as imports fell and exports rose. Shipments of American goods to China skidded to the lowest level in more than eight years as the world’s two biggest economies remained locked in a trade war. The Commerce Department said Wednesday that the gap between the goods and services that the United States sells and what it buys from other countries dropped by 14.6 per cent to $51.1 billion in January from $59.9 billion in December. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalExports rose 0.9 per cent to 207.3 billion, and imports dropped 2.6 per cent to $258.5 billion.The deficit in the trade of goods with China narrowed by 6.4 per cent to $34.5 billion. U.S. goods exports to China dropped 22.3 per cent to USD7.1 billion, lowest since September 2010; Chinese imports dropped 9.6 per cent to $41.6 billion. The Trump administration has imposed taxes on $250 billion worth of Chinese imports, and the Chinese have retaliated by targeting about $110 billion in American products.

U.S. and Chinese negotiators are meeting this week to move toward a resolution of the dispute, which has rattled global markets and threatened the outlook for the world economy. Earlier, the Chinese had promised to buy more American soybeans as a goodwill gesture. And in January, U.S. soybean exports overall shot up to $1.2 billion from $299 million in December. The U.S. also reported a sharp increase in exports of cars, trucks and auto parts in January. President Donald Trump campaigned on a pledge to reduce America’s longstanding trade deficit with the rest of the world. He sees the gap as a sign of economic weakness and as the result of bad trade deals and abusive practices by America’s trading partners.last_img read more

UN welcomes Moroccos arrest of 6 of its peacekeepers for sexual assault

The UN Organization Mission in the DRC (MONUC) said it considers that the jailing of the suspects, pending their court martial, “shows that the Moroccan authorities attach as much importance to eradicating sexual abuse within UN peacekeeping missions as does the UN.”The Mission said it hoped the vigorous and public reaction from the Moroccan Government would serve as an example for other troop-contributing countries to follow.According to the web site of the Moroccan Permanent Mission to the United Nations the country has 750 soldiers and four officers in the DRC.The UN has no authority to discipline peacekeepers, so it must rely on the troop contributing Governments to take action.According to a recent UN report, hungry children have been given payments ranging from a few eggs to a few dollars in exchange for sex. Some of the victims were abandoned orphans and they were often illiterate. One has been said to be a deaf mute.Last week, after the UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO) imposed a curfew and forbade fraternization between peacekeeping troops and the Congolese, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan called for 100 more police and several French-speaking investigators to strengthen MONUC.A UN spokesman in New York said that other measures that have already been taken to help combat the problem include clearing brush around UN military camps to make surveillance easier; establishing a curfew from 6 pm to 6 am; shutting down marketing stalls near the UN camps to reduce peacekeepers’ contact with the local population; and increasing patrols. read more

Opinion Coldweather Super Bowl poses big risk reward for NFL

MetLife Stadium will play host to Super Bowl XLVIII Feb. 2.Courtesy of MCTSan Diego, Houston, Miami, New Orleans. East Rutherford, New Jersey?One of these Super Bowl host cities, quite clearly, is not like the others.The National Football League’s decision to host Super Bowl XLVIII in a cold-weather city — specifically one without a suitable indoor venue — has become a frequent target for criticism during the weeks leading up to the big game. Set to kickoff on Sunday, at 6:25 p.m., this year’s Super Bowl — which pits the Denver Broncos and their league-best offense against the Seattle Seahawks’ No.1-ranked defense — has been somewhat upstaged by the weather forecast.Back in 2010, when NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced that the first-ever outdoor, cold-weather Super Bowl would be played in New Jersey, the decision produced mixed reviews. Since that time, the sense of concern has risen as the challenges of hosting the nation’s most-watched sporting event under the harsh conditions of winter have come into focus.There is no doubt that Goodell and the NFL owners took a gamble in selecting MetLife Stadium to host the 48th version of the Super Bowl. It remains to be seen as to whether or not they will be rewarded for that risk.Theoretically, bringing the greatest spectacle in American sports to the New York metropolitan area is a recipe for an unprecedented amount of hype. In practice, however, the “crash-and-burn” potential of a “Big Apple” Super Bowl rivals that of one of MetLife Stadium’s familiar occupants — The New York Jets.According to, February is the tri-state area’s snowiest month with an average of 9.5 inches of precipitation. At this time last year, Winter Storm Nemo buried the city under 10 inches of snow.Low and behold, when the Farmers’ Almanac was released last August, it predicted that a major winter storm would hit the Northeast around the time of Super Bowl Sunday. Last week, more than 1,300 workers could be found shoveling inside MetLife Stadium after it was blanketed with 13 inches of snow.Several media outlets have already begun discussing the chances of a Super Bowl Saturday or Monday in the event of severe weather — a scenario that league officials have conceded as a remote possibility. On Jan. 23, reported that NFL Executive Vice President Eric Grubman said the game could be played anytime between Friday and Monday, if necessary.Fortunately, the current weather forecast for Sunday is favorable, calling for a high of 39 degrees and placing the chance of rain or snow at just 20 percent. Assuming those predictions hold true, the conditions will be manageable—just don’t expect the Red Hot Chili Peppers to sport their usual shirtless look when they join Bruno Mars on stage for the halftime show.In an interview with the New York Daily News, Goodell stood by the league’s choice of MetLife Stadium.“We made the decision that football is played in the elements and so we recognize that and we made a decision to do that. Championship games are often played in inclement weather,” Goodell said. “We had several games that were played in inclement weather, including playoff games this year. That’s football.”The commissioner does have a point. There is something quite romantic about the prospect of the Super Bowl being played on a snow-covered field at The Meadowlands. However, in the event that America’s de facto national holiday — the Super Bowl — is interfered with, the results will be anything but romantic for Goodell and the NFL. read more

2020 Chevy Corvette poses at Bowling Green plant where GM is adding

With its SH-AWD system, the MDX is one of the better handling midsize luxury crossovers, and for 2019 the company gives us the A-Spec treatment with a new front fascia and side skirts, 20-inch wheels, wider exhaust tips, unique gauges, a new steering wheel, carbon fiber trim and various Alcantara interior touches.However, both the standard and A-Spec models get a 3.5-liter V6 engine, rated for 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque going through a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Acura MDX is made in East Liberty, Ohio.  2019 Chevy Camaro ZL1 Convertible review: A topless thrill ride Enlarge ImageThe eighth-generation Chevy Corvette will be revealed on July 18. Chevrolet The next-generation Chevrolet Corvette — you know, the midengine one — will be revealed on July 18. In order to support production demands for Chevy’s new performance halo car, General Motors announced Thursday it will add a second shift at the Bowling Green, Kentucky, facility where the Corvette is built.The second shift will result in the addition of “more than 400 hourly jobs,” according to Chevy’s statement. This will increase the Bowling Green plant’s workforce to more than 1,300 employees.Chevrolet teased the new, midengine Corvette earlier this month in a big way. Company officials drove a camouflaged prototype through New York, with General Motors CEO Mary Barra riding shotgun. The slightly altered prototype pictured here outside of the Bowling Green facility wears the same “07.18.19” sticker as before, alluding to the eighth-generation Corvette’s reveal date.There’s been no shortage of reports about the midengine Corvette; this is a car that’s been rumored to be in development for decades. We originally expected it to debut at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show this past January, but heard it was delayed due to problems with the electrical system.Chevrolet launched a dedicated 2020 Corvette website earlier this month, and said it will post updates to that page periodically, leading up to the July 18 reveal. Like enthusiasts everywhere, we can’t wait to see what’s in store. 18 Photos 26 Photos Comments Share your voice 2019 Acura MDX adds new features and an A-Spec model 2019 Honda Odyssey offers plenty of room and features for families 2019 Acura RDX A-Spec: Sharp handling, sharper looks GMC CanyonIf you’re looking for a slightly fancier version of the Colorado that’s more focused on luxe than dirt, check out the GMC Canyon. The top Denali trim gets standard heated and ventilated front seats as well as a heated steering wheel. Maximum payload capability is 1,665 pounds while max towing is a fairly healthy 7,600 pounds.The Canyon is available with the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, 3.6-liter V6 or 2.8-liter diesel as the Chevrolet Colorado. It’s also built in Wentzville, Missouri. 2019 Honda Ridgeline review: Light duty, heavy punch 2019 Honda Ridgeline: The commuter’s pickup truck 71 Photos 8 Photos 52 Photos 69 Photos 49 Photos Honda RidgelineAgain keeping the status quo, the Honda Ridgeline maintains third place on the American Made Index. This crossover-that-looks-like-a-truck provides a better ride than a traditional pickup and gets an awesome lockable trunk right in the floor of the bed. And it doesn’t do the truck stuff too badly, either, as it’s able to carry 1,860 pounds of payload and tow 3,500 pounds.The Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 good for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. That is channeled through a six-speed automatic transmission with available all-wheel drive.

Shown here in the tough ZR2 Bison off-road spec, the Chevy Colorado is an excellent truck and one of the two midsize pickups you can get with a diesel engine. Adding to the ZR2’s two-inch lift and front and rear locking differentials, the Bison gets beefier skid plates (trust me, that’s a good thing), steel bumpers and integrated recovery points. Heck, you can even get a snorkel.Base models get a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with a six-speed manual transmission, but a more popular choice is the 3.6-liter V6 gas engine with 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the 2.8-liter diesel pumps out 186 horsepower and a delicious 369 pound-feet of twist and is mated to a six-speed automatic. The Chevy Colorado is built in Wentzville, Missouri. 2019 GMC Canyon: A fancier Colorado Acura RDXThe third-generation Acura RDX squeaks into the top ten list with larger proportions, plenty of interior space and better handling than its predecessor. Forward collision warning with collision mitigation braking, adaptive cruise control that works even in low-speed traffic, lane-keeping steering assist and road departure mitigation are all standard across the board. Like its MDX counterpart, the RDX is available with the A-Spec styling package.The RDX sports a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine. Output is stated at 273 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, and it’s mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The new RDX is built in East Liberty, Ohio. Chevrolet CorvetteMoving up from the 10th-place slot last year is the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette. While we’ve all been ogling the new mid-engine Corvette, it’s easy to forget what a performance bargain the current-generation ‘Vette is. From the base trim to the Grand Sport to the bonkers ZR1, the Corvette is an American icon.My preference is for the Grand Sport, which strikes a perfect balance between everyday drivability and canyon-carving performance. The 6.2-liter V8 puts out 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. You can get it with a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, but the kicker is the borrowed chassis and aero parts from the beefier Z06. Like I said, perfect balance. The Corvette is made in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Chevrolet,Enlarge ImageIt’s all in a day’s work for the Jeep Cherokee, the most American-made car in 2019. Jeep With high trade tensions looming and increasing talk of tariffs, more and more consumers are looking to buy American. has released its annual American Made Index, showcasing companies that use the most American-sourced parts and labor in their vehicles. The results may surprise analyzed more than 100 US-built vehicles for five key data points: manufacturing location, parts sourcing, US employment, engine sourcing and transmission sourcing. You might think something like the Ford F-150 would top the list, but it drops from its No. 5 spot for 2018 and out of the top 10 completely. Even the first-place holder, the Jeep Cherokee, is a pretty global product. It’s a Jeep, sure, but that brand is part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, an Italian-owned surveyed 1,000 people and found that half are concerned about automotive import tariffs, with 41% saying they are unsure if tariffs would make them more likely to buy American. Either way, we’re big fans of all the vehicles on this list. These days, buying American doesn’t necessarily mean sticking with a US-based automaker. Honda OdysseyThe feature-rich Honda Odyssey minivan also retains its number-two slot from last year’s list. While the 2019 model doesn’t see any changes from last, it’s still a darn good choice for families on the go with reconfigurable seats, Wi-Fi and an excellent rear-seat entertainment system. The Cabin Watch video system lets parents keep an eye on their little darlings without turning around in their seats, while Cabin Talk amplifies their voice so no yelling is required.The Odyssey is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 rated for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Most trims get a nine-speed automatic but the top Touring and Elite trims now use a 10-speed automatic with stop-start technology. The Honda Odyssey is made in Lincoln, Alabama. Tags Honda PassportThe Honda Passport is a new (well, reborn) entry to both the Honda lineup and the American Made Index. This midsize crossover comes to the fray with great driving dynamics and plenty of tech like the standard Honda Sensing suite of active safety features. An available 8-inch touchscreen gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot.Under the hood is the stalwart 3.5-liter V6 producing 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. However unlike the Ridgeline, the Passport sends that power through a nine-speed automatic transmission. Having said that, just like the Ridgeline, this is the only powertrain available.

Former AFRO Reporter William C Rhoden Among Those Inducted into Hall of

first_imgBy J. K. Schmid, Special to the AFROA former AFRO reporter was inducted into the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) Hall of Fame May 25.William “Bill” Rhoden, journalist, columnist and author, is a Morgan State alumnus, whose career spans publications from the AFRO to the Baltimore Sun to Ebony Magazine to the New York Times.William C. Rhoden, who covered Baltimore and sports at the AFRO in the 1970s, is one of five journalists inducted into the NABJ Hall of Fame. There will be a ceremony in August. (Twitter)Rhoden joins four additional names to the 2018 class: Albert J. Dunmore (posthumous), a former managing editor and executive editor of the Michigan Chronicle; Victoria “Vicki” Jones (posthumous), a TV news program producer with Boston’s WGBH and WBZ, Harvard Graduate and former president of the Boston Association of Black Journalists; Louis Martin (posthumous), the commonly known “Godfather of Black Politics,” Martin was a Black rhetorical advisor to Democratic presidents Roosevelt, Kennedy, Johnson and Carter, and a reporter, editor and publisher with institutions such as the Chicago Defender and also the Michigan Chronicle.The only other living inductee is Bob Ray Sanders, a journalist whose career crossed radio, TV and written media. Sanders, reporting from Texas, was an early critic of South African Apartheid and covered Texas’ process of divestment from the regime.“When I look at the list of previous inductees, this honor becomes even more humbling. Many of those men and women are people I have looked up to and admired for decades and who were beacon lights for my own career,” Rhoden told the NABJ. “The sole focus of my life and career at this point is mentoring and sponsoring a new generation of talented African Americans, not only in sports journalism but throughout a sports industry that tends to exclude and ignore Black talent that does not run and jump. I appreciate what this honor says about my past and am even more excited about the momentum it provides for an exciting future.”One such mentor was AFRO sports editor Sam Lacy, of the eponymous NABJ Sam Lacy Pioneer Award. Lacy was 1991’s NABJ Lifetime Achievement Awardee.“Sam was a crusader, I became a crusader,” Rhoden wrote of Lacy in “Overcoming Barriers With His Sports Pen” a May 2003 article for the New York Times. “In the rough-and-tumble 1940s and 1950s, he fought so many battles in a sports industry coming to terms with the emergence of African-American athletes. Lacy, Wendell Smith and Joe Bostic played a major role in integrating major league baseball. Sam and Wendell shepherded Jackie Robinson into White baseball and chronicled his first seasons for a Black audience that couldn’t get enough. Sam was an advocate for Black rights, a watchdog, a voice of reason.”Since that 2003 article, Rhoden went on to publish 40 Million Dollar Slaves: The Rise, Fall, and Redemption of the Black Athlete in 2006. A deeply conflicted work; Rhoden’s literally-on-the-field account of 1968’s Whitney Young Classic, wherein he and the Morgan State Bears played the Grambling Tigers in Yankee Stadium, describes thrilling instances of courage, daring, foolhardiness, desperation and resolve. He and his Bears won, but in the echoes of the twin hammer-blow assassinations of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, questions what the ecstasy that comes with Black excellence ultimately delivers without Black advancement.“This was a snapshot of out past, our present, and–I hoped–our future,” Rhoden wrote. “I walked off the Yankee Stadium turf bursting with pride, thankful to be part of something this big, this Black, this beautiful. We had the athletes, we had the fans, we had the money. This day, I thought, was the beginning of something. After all that happened in 1968–the assassinations, the riots, the protests–things would never be the same again; there was no going back. I felt that something new had awakened in us. Decades later, I would still be waiting. The dream was a mirage.”The reality of Black sport, Rhoden’s research uncovers, is explained by his term “Jockey Syndrome.” Named so for the first instances of Black domination in American sport: horse racing. 18th and 19th century slaves, who tended, trained and finally rode their masters’ horses were nigh-unbeatable on the track. But White ownership coupled with White popular resentment, changed the rules to marginalize and all but eliminate Blacks from competition. Rhoden works reveals a similar pattern in the back-and-forth integration of baseball, the rise of and fall of Negro leagues, and Robinson’s 1947 break of the color line coming to overshadow Moses Fleetwood Walker’s debut in the major leagues in 1884.While working for the AFRO in the 1970s Rhoden covered sports and Baltimore City among other things. One memorable article about various scams from 1974 carried the headline, “Summertime is ‘sting season’ for city’s flim-flammers.”Rhoden now writes for The Undefeated. While chronicling the ever-rising LeBron James on the court, or profiling UMBC’s own Freeman Hrabowski’s leadership; one critical eye remains on how the NCAA compensates players.“What happens if the players don’t show up?” Rhoden wrote in “The NCAA Tournament and the Billions of Dollars That Need to be Shared” for The Undefeated. “What happens if they stage a protest and demand a promise for greater distribution of the wealth? This year’s tournament is expected to take in more than $800 million. Are players willing to fight for greater compensation? Will March Madness ever take a knee? Perhaps sooner than you imagine.”Rhoden and his peers will be inducted into the NABJ Hall of Fame August 5 during the organization’s convention in Detroit.last_img read more

Poor Colombian workers are fleeing Venezuela

first_imgRelated posts:Maduro picks new scapegoat for Venezuela’s problems Venezuelan cartoonist fired after sketch slamming health care Venezuela arrests Caracas opposition mayor over ‘coup’ Venezuelan opposition leader shot dead at campaign event: lawmaker CARACAS, Venezuela — Thirty years after leaving the poverty and violence of Colombia for oil-rich Venezuela, Óscar Mina, a 56-year-old construction worker, is heading home.“Prices are going up every day and the money bills are worthless,” said Mina, sipping beer with compatriots in the Petare slum of eastern Caracas, militant graffiti on the walls, trash in the streets. “Is that governing for the poor?”In a way, no group has benefited more from Venezuela’s socialist revolution of the past 15 years than the millions of Colombians who have moved here in recent decades. Free housing, education and health care turned them into rock-solid supporters of the late President Hugo Chávez.So it is telling that tens of thousands of them are leaving — 200,000 in the past few years, according to Iván De La Vega, a migration scholar at Caracas’s Simon Bolivar University. As the Colombians’ disillusionment grows, it becomes clear that Chávez’s successor, Nicolás Maduro, is in deep trouble. His party, which already lost the support of the upper and middle classes, appears headed for defeat when congressional elections are held later this year.In fact, despite a dearth of reliable data about almost everything in Venezuela, a March Datanalisis poll cited by the Washington-based consultancy Eurasia Group, shows 19 percent of voters choosing government candidates in the legislative elections compared with 43 percent for the opposition.A move back to Colombia is all the more remarkable since Marxist guerrillas still control swaths of countryside there and 31 percent of the population live in poverty. Last month, 11 soldiers were killed by the guerrillas near Mina’s hometown.It’s still worth going, said Gustavo Díaz, a Colombia native in Caracas who, like his compatriots, has done the jobs Venezuelans look down on in agriculture, building and household services. “Everyone who has any options is leaving,” Díaz, a 58-year-old construction worker, said.With oil prices slumping, the final straw for many Colombians was Maduro’s ban on remittances last year in an attempt to save scarce foreign reserves and stave off default. Prior to that they could send wages home at the official exchange rate of 6.3 bolivars per dollar, which translated the minimum monthly wage at the time to about $520 dollars. This compared with a Colombian minimum wage of about $300.Venezuela had the highest gross domestic product per capita in South America at the peak of the oil boom in 1976. By 2013, it was in fourth place.Like poor foreign workers in most countries, Colombians have long been viewed with a measure of contempt here and tended not to advertise their origins. But with the reversal in fortunes, links with Colombia are suddenly sources of pride.Many naturalized Venezuelans are in such a hurry to leave that they are not waiting to renew their expired Colombian documents. Colombian residency visas given to Venezuelan nationals rose 80 percent in 2014 from the previous year, according to the foreign ministry in Bogotá. Venezuelan passport holders were the biggest recipients of Colombian visas last year.Colombians began crossing the eastern border en masse in the 1940s to escape the civil war and benefit from the oil boom in Venezuela. By the 1990s, they represented 77 percent of all migrants in Venezuela, according to Raquel Álvarez, a sociologist at the Andes University in Venezuela.Many became voters. There are about 4.5 million Venezuelan citizens of Colombian descent, or about 16 percent of the population, according to estimates by De La Vega.Once Latin America’s strongest currency, the Venezuelan bolivar has lost 76.7 percent since the start of last year. On the black market, the minimum wage of 5,600 bolivars is worth $20.Henry Botero, 40, renewed his Colombian passport last year to travel to Bogotá to work informally in construction.“I never imagined 10 years ago I would be in Colombia, putting up drywall in warehouses to feed my family,” Botero said in the border city of San Cristóbal on April 22. “Colombian passports used to be looked down on. Now everyone is trying to claim ancestry.”Henry said he still prefers to keep his fiancée and child in Venezuela, to benefit from the free health care and education and near-free utilities and rent.Still, after voting for Chávez for a decade, Botero said he voted for the opposition against Maduro in the last presidential elections in 2013.Colombian emigration is leaving shops and offices near the border empty, exacerbating the broader downturn. Sergio Vergara, who owns a pharmacy in San Cristóbal, said he hasn’t been able to replace a cleaner or security guard after both returned to Colombia late last year.“It’s impossible to find anyone willing to work for the minimum wage here,” he said.Meanwhile, the Colombian government is worried that the influx of thousands of unskilled laborers will tax the already stretched public services and raise unemployment, currently at 10 percent in the cities.“In the border zone there’s an immense socio-economic crisis because of the situation in Venezuela,” said Juan Manuel Corzo, a senator for Colombia’s Norte de Santander region facing San Cristóbal.There are also 205,000 refugees in Venezuela, the vast majority poor Colombians, and Martin Gottwald, deputy head of the United Nation’s refugee agency in Bogotá, said many of them may leave.Discrimination is adding to the economic pain. Maduro has blamed foreign smugglers for food shortages caused by price controls, deporting more than 2,000 Colombians so far this year.“When they hear our accents in the food line, government activists start abusing us,” said Díaz. “It hurts me to go — I spent over half my life here — but this is no longer a country fit for living. It’s completely decayed.”– – – –Medina reported from Bogotá. Andrew Rosati contributed from Caracas.© 2015, Bloomberg News Facebook Commentslast_img read more
