Hong Kong tycoon Jimmy Lai, others to be sentenced for illegal assembly

HONG KONG — Hong Kong media tycoon Jimmy Lai and nine other pro-democracy activists are expected to be sentenced on Friday after they were found guilty of participating in unauthorized assemblies during anti-government protests in 2019.

It would be the first time that Mr. Lai, one of Hong Kong’s most prominent democratic activists, who has been in jail since December after being denied bail in a separate national security trial, will receive a sentence.

About 100 people, including foreign diplomats, queued outside the court early on Friday to get a seat for the hearing.

Mr. Lai was found guilty in two separate trials earlier in April for illegal assemblies on Aug. 18 and Aug. 31, 2019, respectively. The maximum possible punishment is five years in prison.

His repeated arrests have drawn criticism from Western governments and international rights groups, who raised concerns over waning freedoms in the global financial hub, Read the rest

The panel is reviewing six reported cases of rare brain blood clots in women who received the J&J vaccine, a day Read the rest

Biden administration proceeding with $23 billion weapon sales to UAE

WASHINGTON – U.S. President Joe Biden’s administration has told Congress it is proceeding with more than $23 billion in weapons sales to the United Arab Emirates, including advanced F-35 aircraft, armed drones and other equipment, congressional aides said on Tuesday.

A State Department spokesperson said the administration would move forward with the proposed sales to the UAE, “even as we continue reviewing details and consulting with Emirati officials” related to the use of the weapons.

The Democratic president’s administration had paused the deals agreed to by former Republican President Donald Trump in order to review them. The sales to the Gulf nation were finalized right before Trump left office.

The Trump administration told Congress in November it had approved the U.S. sale to the UAE as a side deal to the Abraham Accords, a U.S.-brokered agreement in September in which the UAE agreed to normalize relations with Israel.

What to Consider Before Getting a Second Credit Card

Life presents us with a series of life-altering decisions. Should we search for a new job? Are we ready for marriage and children? Is getting a second credit card a good idea? Okay, maybe that last one isn’t in the same category, but it is an issue that requires some thought.

A second credit card means another monthly payment. Applying for one will have an effect on your credit score. There’s also the possibility that your spending could become unmanageable, and you’ll start to hear terms like “debt snowball” and “debt avalanche method,” which can sound scary if you don’t know what they are. (They’re ways to pay off your debt, BTW.)

None of this means that getting a second credit card is a bad idea. There are benefits to doing it and good reasons why you’d want to apply for one. In this article, we’ll go over some important … Read the rest

China’s exports rise at robust pace in March, imports growth highest in 4 years

BEIJING – China’s exports grew at a robust pace in March in yet another boost to the nation’s economic recovery as global demand picks up amid progress in worldwide COVID-19 vaccination, while import growth surged to the highest in four years.

The data suggests the world’s second largest economy will continue to gather momentum as it emerges from the COVID-19-led slump in early 2020, though a lagging consumer rebound and resurgence in COVID-19 cases in many countries have raised risks for the outlook.

Exports in dollar terms soared 30.6% in March from a year earlier, but at a slower pace from a record 154.9% growth in February. The analysts polled by Reuters have forecast a 35.5% jump in shipments.

“Strong foreign demand is likely to be sustained throughout the second quarter as the global economy further recovers,” said Nie Wen, analyst at Nie Wen, economist at Hwabao Trust.
