Trump real estate empire under threat after fraud ruling; ex-US president to visit Detroit autoworkers – US politics live
Wed, 27 Sep 2023 14:44:44 GMT

Judge ordered cancellation of certificates that let Trump businesses operate in New York; Detroit visit comes just ahead of Republican debate

US soldier Travis King, who fled to North Korea in July, is in American custody after being expelled by Pyongyang into China, according to US officials.

North Korea’s KCNA state news agency said King had been expelled after he confessed to illegally entering the country. It said the soldier harboured ill feelings over inhumane treatment and racial discrimination within the US army.

‘Almost a troll of the legacy’: Reagan’s spirit looms over Republican debate
Wed, 27 Sep 2023 13:39:05 GMT

Republican presidential debate is being held at the 40th president’s library, but some say Reagan’s party is no longer recognizable

Tourists posed for photos beside the presidential seal, peered inside the cockpit, studied the nuclear football and gazed at a desk where a “Ronald Reagan” jacket slung over the chair, page of handwritten notes and jelly bean jar made it appear as if the 40th US president could saunter back at any moment.

Air Force One is the star attraction at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum in Simi Valley, California. But on Wednesday it is competing for attention with a curving Starship Enterprise-style stage set featuring seven lecterns and microphones for the second Republican presidential primary debate.

Labour says Sunak should take blame for soaring HS2 costs as they happened on his ‘direct watch’ – UK politics live

The Guardian view on the Liberal Democrats: a strategy to help oust the Tories | Editorial
Tue, 26 Sep 2023 18:06:37 GMT

Casting the Lib Dems as the party of the NHS is bold but credible – given a Liberal can claim to have invented it

Sir Ed Davey did not pull his punches on Tuesday as he wrapped up the Liberal Democrats’ conference. The party leader made it clear that the Tories would be the Lib Dems’ main opponent at the next general election. Corrupt, chaotic and careless were among the nicer things he called Conservative leaders. He drew laughter by claiming that a party member, who is a clown, had a point when he complained that it was unfair on his profession for the Lib Dem leader to keep comparing the Tories to his colleagues. However, there was no disguising his seriousness about getting rid of the current ruling “shambles”.

The Lib Dems won’t form the next government, but they can help oust the Tories. Sir Ed is building a social base in the so-called “blue wall” seats in south-east England of Conservative-leaning voters put off by ministerial incompetence and shabby public services. The party’s endorsement of proportional representation to ensure every vote counts has the advantage of increasing the present distance from both the main parties for potential electoral advantage. The Lib Dem strategy to peel off Tories in marginal seats has been working so far. When Sir Ed took over in 2020 the party had 11 MPs. Today it has 15 after a string of stunning byelection victories.

German politics has a built-in firewall against the far right. It’s beginning to crack | John Kampfner
Wed, 27 Sep 2023 06:00:50 GMT

Germany is more resilient to populism than its neighbours. But parties such as Alternative für Deutschland are testing it to the limit

The Germans have a term for what holds them together: Wehrhafte Demokratie. It roughly translates as fortified democracy, but that does not fully render its meaning. In essence, it refers to the idea that the state has the right to act against those who threaten the liberal democratic order.

Another guarantor of German stability was the postwar constitutional settlement that founded three Volksparteien, big-tent “citizens’ parties” operating along carefully regulated parameters, encompassing centre-left, centre and centre-right. None would enjoy absolute power, which required coalitions, compromise and consensus at national and regional levels. As a further safety net, parties with less than 5% of the vote couldn’t join parliament, excluding fringe groups.

John Kampfner is the author of In Search of Berlin, published by Atlantic Books on 5 October.

It’s time to consider how we can make the best of HS2 | Letters
Tue, 26 Sep 2023 16:41:26 GMT

A system built purely for speed ignores the needs of the populations it’s trying to connect, says Andrew Gore. Plus letters from David Watts, Allan Whittow and Jonathan Leeming

The rail industry always knew that the key issues for its future were capacity and connectivity, but thought that only the glamour of very high speed trains would persuade politicians (Gold-plated HS2 looks dead. So let’s run the numbers on a bronze-plated design, 22 September). Very high speed trains require complex engineering solutions, greater construction, rolling stock and signalling costs, and have a much greater environmental impact.

The real justification for new capacity was admitted belatedly, but the design of HS2 from London to Birmingham demonstrates the deficiencies of a system built essentially for pure speed: Milton Keynes and Northampton with populations of over 250,000 ignored, no interchange with East West Rail, not even a travelator link to Birmingham New Street station – and far more damaging to the environment than merely higher speeds.

Showing support for young asylum seekers | Letters
Tue, 26 Sep 2023 16:39:31 GMT

Readers on the colouring book that cartoonists created for refugees

I was heartened to read Harriet Sherwood’s article on the production of a colouring book by the Professional Cartoonists Organisation (Cartoonists create colouring book for refugees in rebuff to UK government, 22 September). This is a counter to the mean-spirited actions of Robert Jenrick, who had a mural of cartoon characters at a migrants’ reception centre painted over as he considered it too welcoming for children. I share the outrage of the cartoonist Guy Venables, but took some small comfort in the fact that I thought it was impossible for the actions of a government minister to sink any lower. How wrong I was. Diane Taylor’s article on the same day (Fear of X-ray age tests in UK ‘may force child asylum seekers to flee’, 22 September) describes Ministry of Justice and Home Office proposals to carry out medical tests involving X-rays and MRI scans to determine the ages of young asylum seekers.

It is no exaggeration to say that these proposals plumb new depths of abhorrence, even for the most depraved members of this government. The notion of using any medical tests for non-medical purposes is unethical at the very least, and violates the human rights of any children who refuse to be subjected to such tests. In addition, the use of such medical equipment restricts their use for medical purposes and requires medically trained staff to operate them. I fervently hope that all medical staff will refuse to do so.

I advised Starmer on his plan to ‘stop the boats’. This is why Labour’s policy will work | Thom Brooks
Wed, 27 Sep 2023 13:00:05 GMT

The Tories’ tactics are failing as asylum seekers continue to risk their lives in huge numbers. Our solution will address that

  • Thom Brooks is an adviser to the shadow home affairs team

The prime minister’s pledge to “stop the boats” has become an easy target for ridicule. Small boats continue to cross the English Channel in near record numbers. More than 20,000 people have arrived on Britain’s shores this year, with up to 500 people (sometimes more) arriving on any given day. In fact, the only boat that has been stopped is the Bibby Stockholm barge, commissioned to house asylum seekers, after legionella was found in its water system – a perfect symbol for the disastrous handling of this crisis.

It couldn’t be clearer that the government’s plans aren’t working. Only weeks after saying the Illegal Immigration Act will stop the boats, the home secretary, Suella Braverman, claimed yesterday that the United Nations refugee convention needs to be rewritten for the asylum system to work.

The Tories’ huge new oilfield is a moral obscenity – but Rosebank can still be stopped | Caroline Lucas
Wed, 27 Sep 2023 12:33:12 GMT

Reliance on oil won’t slash our bills: this is a climate crime that will leave our economy more vulnerable

“This is just the start,” said Rishi Sunak last week in his climate-wrecking speech from Downing Street. It certainly was just the start, because today, the government has sanctioned drilling in Rosebank, the biggest undeveloped oilfield in the North Sea.

This just 14 months after the UK’s hottest day, in July 2022. In that same month, the high court ruled the government’s net zero strategy unlawful, and ministers were ordered to redo their homework.

Andrews’ handling of pandemic ‘a legacy of his strength’, Bill Shorten says

NDIS minister and former Labor leader Bill Shorten has spoken highly of outgoing Victorian premier Daniel Andrews while speaking to ABC RN this morning.

I think the pandemic was the most unusual period in Victoria … and I think that we were learning a lot as we went along during that.

When I think back to those first few days, in March 2020, I think the aim was to ensure that we had enough hospital space to be able to treat people if they got very sick, and that required, I think, a high degree of central leadership.

Police will continue to monitor the situation as there are a large number of batteries on site … Nearby residents are urged to monitor [social media] and be prepared for police to door-knock homes in the area if the situation worsens.

London refuse workers’ strike ends as pay deal with council reached

Unite says extra £750 secured for Tower Hamlets striking workers after rubbish left on streets for nearly two weeks

A strike by refuse workers in the east London borough of Tower Hamlets, which resulted in huge piles of rubbish being left on the streets for almost two weeks, has come to an end after a pay deal with the council was reached.

Unite, the union representing the refuse workers, announced on Tuesday that a pay deal with Tower Hamlets council had been reached. Earlier this month, more than 200 refuse and street cleaners working for the council had rejected an offer of a flat rate increase of £1,925. The union said this would amount to a real-terms pay cut due to the rising cost of living. Strike action began on 18 September.

‘Lachlan Murdoch is a Hamlet figure’: Michael Wolff unpicks the real-life succession drama
Wed, 27 Sep 2023 09:00:54 GMT

The author has returned to the Murdoch empire for his latest book, after a bestselling trilogy on Trump. He discusses power, politics, the media and why a person can be a moron and a genius

Immediately before Michael Wolff published The Fall: The End of the Murdoch Empire, the emperor himself, driver of its expansion and its bitter divisions, stepped aside. Last week, Rupert Murdoch announced he was anointing his eldest son, Lachlan, as his successor, which per Wolff’s narrative will have been a bitter blow to everyone, including Lachlan.

Wolff’s latest book joins an oeuvre that is remarkable for its access: in 2008, he wrote a biography of Murdoch, The Man Who Owns the News, for which the mogul gave him 50 hours of interviews. Never mind that it’s the longest Murdoch has ever spoken to a journalist, it’s probably the longest he’s ever spoken to a friend. “We really got along. He’s inexhaustible on the subject of the media, and I, too, am inexhaustible on that subject. We had a very good time,” says Wolff. So long as they were doing business or gossip, that is. “He’s very hard to talk to personally; he can’t reflect on his own past and his own experience. He can talk about his family; he was weirdly transparent about his children. But about himself, what he might be feeling, no.”

But the gulf between what was proposed for an apartment complex rising 23 storeys above the Thames in south-east London and what was actually built has finally proved too much.

Wed, 27 Sep 2023 08:00:53 GMT

The protest over the charging of a marksman in the Chris Kaba case was damaging to British policing

There were many reactions this week when the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) made known its decision to charge a police firearms officer with the murder of Chris Kaba a year ago. Mine was: why has it taken so long?

I was thinking of the pain and suffering the family had gone through waiting for the decision. And about the officer, and the anxiety he must have gone through waiting for a disproportionate amount of time to see what would happen next. I knew there would be an outcry by his colleagues in the various armed response units across the Met. That was right.

Petrostates should pay a small percentage of their soaring oil and gas revenues to help poor countries cope with the climate crisis, the former UK prime minister Gordon Brown has urged.

Countries with large oil and gas deposits have enjoyed a record bonanza in the last two years, amounting to about $4tn (£3.3tn) last year for the industry globally. Levying a 3% windfall tax on the oil and gas export revenues of the biggest-producing countries would yield about $25bn a year.

JPMorgan Chase & Co. JPM said Wednesday it won a competitive process to provide account validation services for the U.S. Treasury Department under a financial agency agreement for a minimum of five years. Terms of the deal were not disclosed in a statement by the bank. The U.S. Treasury disbursed about $5.3 trillion in payments in 2022 through nearly 1.4 billion payments including Social Security, Medicare payments, unemployment insurance, and tax refunds. Last year an estimated $247 billion in improper payments were logged by the government including overpayments, underpayments and payments that should not have been made. The contract includes verifying payment information for the federal government before payments are issued. JPMorgan Chase stock was up by 0.3% in premarket trades on Wednesday.

The Tell: What stock investors need to know about U.S. government shutdowns
Tue, 26 Sep 2023 20:01:00 GMT

Anna Moneymaker/Getty ImagesA potential U.S. government shutdown is looming in a matter of days and weighed on risk appetite in financial markets on Tuesday. Yet history shows that they’re relatively common, resolved quickly, and don’t tend to keep the S&P 500 index from advancing.That’s according to Brian Levitt, the New York-based global market strategist for Invesco, which managed almost $1.54 trillion as of June 30. His remarks came as the U.S. federal government is headed toward a partial shutdown Sunday morning, if lawmakers don’t act fast enough.The U.S. has experienced a total of 21 government shutdowns in its history, he said, citing the Treasury Department. On average, they’ve been resolved within eight days; five of them lasted only a day and the longest stretched on for 34 days. And during shutdowns, the S&P 500 SPX has posted positive returns during 12 of the 21 shutdowns, eking out a 0.1% average return, Levitt said in emailed comments distributed on Monday.This time around, however, there’s a lot of simultaneous risks that investors are grappling with — from rising interest rates to the possible revival of inflation amid expanded labor strikes, in addition to the resumption of student-loan payments that could sap spending. U.S. stocks DJIA SPX COMP remained on track for a losing September as of Tuesday, with long-term Treasury yields establishing fresh 16- and 12-year closing highs. Read:Stock investors face a wall of worry into year’s end, creating the need for protection “While unnerving, concerns about shutdowns shouldn’t change investors’ long-term investment plans,” Levitt wrote in his comments, which were also posted online earlier this month. “This isn’t the first government shutdown, and it’s likely not the last.”U.S. stocks opened lower on Tuesday amid ongoing worries about a shutdown, which Moody’s Investors Service said would be “credit negative” for the U.S. Dow industrials finished the day down by 388 points or 1.1%.

Volatility increased some — but not all — of the time, based on moves derived from returns on Dow industrials, he said.Source: Bloomberg as of Dec. 31, 2022. Volatility is measured by the standard deviation of price moves on returns in the Dow Jones Industrial Average.

Overcrowded and understaffed: life in England’s crumbling prisons – podcast
Wed, 27 Sep 2023 02:00:45 GMT

Rats, broken windows and overfilled cells are a daily reality for prisoners in England’s crumbling jails. Helen Pidd reports

When the 21-year-old terror suspect Daniel Khalife managed to escape from Wandsworth prison earlier this month, apparently on the underside of a van, it turned the spotlight on to what was really going on in England’s jails.

The Guardian’s north of England editor, Helen Pidd, has been investigating the state of prisons and tells Nosheen Iqbal she found in some cases a system close to breaking point. There’s chronic overcrowding, appalling conditions and a decimated workforce. Among it all are stories of staff struggling to cope and prisoners’ rehabilitation often more theory than practice.

: Shares of MillerKnoll rally on boost to profit forecast
Tue, 26 Sep 2023 20:43:00 GMT

Shares of MillerKnoll Inc. MLKN jumped 14.1% after hours on Tuesday after the furniture maker raised its full-year profit outlook, despite a pressured housing market and shaky economies in China and Europe. Executives raised their full fiscal 2024 adjusted earnings per share forecast to a range of $1.85 to $2.15, compared with expectations for between $1.70 and $2.00 a share stated in July. The forecast on Tuesday came as the company’s fiscal first-quarter results beat expectations, helped by a return to offices following the pandemic and “significant profit improvement” in the Americas region. Miller Knoll reported first-quarter net income of $16.1 million, or 22 cents a share, compared with $27.4 million, or 34 cents a share, in the same quarter last year. Adjusted for amortization, integration and restructuring charges, MillerKnoll earned 37 cents a share. Revenue fell to $917.7 million from $1.08 billion in the prior-year quarter. Analysts polled by FactSet expected MillerKnoll to report adjusted earnings per share of 21 cents, on sales of $896 million.

India’s lower house of parliament has passed a bill to reserve a third of seats for women, almost triple the current number, in a move that could transform Indian politics.

More than 27 years after it was first proposed in parliament, the women’s reservation bill was given almost unanimous support by MPs in the lower house, with only two voting against it. Its passage through the upper house is expected to be smooth thanks to broad political support.

Tue, 26 Sep 2023 13:30:00 GMT

U.S. stocks opened lower Tuesday amid worries over a potential government shutdown and higher Treasury yields. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA was down 0.6% soon after the opening bell, while the S&P 500 SPX shed 0.7% and the Nasdaq Composite COMP dropped 0.7%, according to FactSet data, at last check. Investors are watching for Congress to pass a budget by Saturday or risk a U.S. government shutdown. Moody’s has said that a shutdown “would demonstrate the significant constraints that intensifying political polarization put on fiscal policymaking at a time of declining fiscal strength, driven by widening fiscal deficits and deteriorating debt affordability.” Meanwhile, ten-year Treasury yields were down slightly on Tuesday at around 4.51%, after on Monday ending at the highest level since October 17, 2007.

Canva Pros and Cons

Pros:

  • A user-friendly interface
  • Canva is a great tool for people who want to create professional graphics but don’t have graphic design skills.
  • Hundreds of templates, so you'll never have to start from scratch.
  • Wide variety of templates to fit multiple uses
  • Branding kits to keep your team consistent with the brand colors and fonts
  • Creating visual content on the go
  • You can find royalty free images, audio, and video without having to subscribe to another service.

Cons:

  • Some professional templates are available for Pro user only
  • Advanced photo editing features like blurring or erasing a specific area are missing.
  • Some elements that fall outside of a design are tricky to retrieve.
  • Features (like Canva presentations) could use some improvement.
  • If you are a regular user of Adobe products, you might find Canva's features limited.
  • Prefers to work with vectors. Especially logos.
  • Expensive enterprise pricing

Conclusion

In general, Canva is an excellent tool for those who need simple images for projects. If you are a graphic designer with experience, you will find Canva’s platform lacking in customization and advanced features – particularly vectors. But if you have little design experience, you will find Canva easier to use than advanced graphic design tools like Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator for most projects.
