"It is equally important for the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston and the Federal Reserve System to focus on what is important — to return the economy to full employment and carry out the important work conducted by the Boston Fed." Kenneth Montgomery, the Boston Fed's first vice president and chief operating officer, will assume the role of interim CEO and president later this week. Rosengren joined the Boston Fed as an economist in 1985 and served as head of supervision, regulation and credit before he succeeded Cathy Minehan as president in 2007. Minehan held the president's position at the Boston Fed for 13 years following the tenure of Richard Syron. Boston is one of 12 regional reserve banks in the Federal Reserve system.

“The reality is that it’s always easier to trade with those who are geographically near, that’s how it works,” Thornberry said. Thornberry’s first step would be to strike an agreement with the EU to resolve problems with the transportation of food between Britain and the EU, and Britain and Northern Ireland. The government has said it wants to find solutions, but will not tie its food standard permanently to EU law. A veterinary deal could help rebuild trust with Brussels and open the door to mini agreements on a range of other difficult issues that were delayed or left unresolved by the 2020 deal, Thornberry said. “Build on what’s there, repair the holes, be pragmatic, be realistic, be grown up politicians and not dogmatic,” Thornberry said.

Consigning the WTO to “benign neglect”, Dombrovskis said, would be to lose one of the most important tools to advance open and fair trade. Washington continues the policy of former president Donald Trump of blocking appointments to the WTO’s appellate body, meaning it cannot effectively intervene to settle global trade disputes. The WTO could not address these challenges in its current form, the commissioner said, insisting the reform process needed to start at the WTO’s ministerial conference on Nov. 30-Dec. 3. The EU stood ready, Dombrovskis said, to work with the United States to reach agreements on fishery subsidies, health, agriculture and sustainability and to start a serious discussion on institutional reform. “I believe that with strong engagement and joint leadership, we can really reinvigorate the WTO.”(Reporting by Philip Blenkinsop; editing by David Evans)

Last week, the ACLU of Indiana filed a lawsuit in federal court on behalf of members of a Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA), claiming that their high school is violating the students’ First and Fourth Amendment rights. “By creating additional hurdles for Pendleton Heights Gay-Straight Alliance such as censoring the group’s promotions and prohibiting fundraising, the school is infringing on these students’ rights,” said Ken Falk, ACLU of Indiana legal director, in the release. The Indianapolis Star reported that this is not the first time LGBTQ students have claimed they were being treated unfairly. This summer, a group of Pendleton Heights students and parents appealed to the school board after teachers were told to remove pride flags from their classrooms. Many argued that pride flags are not political speech.

However, many have arguedhave argued that straight actors’ performances in queer roles can be offensive or inauthentic. Yet in Billy Eichner’s upcoming rom-com Bros, every main character — including the straight ones — will be played by an LGBTQ actor, proving that queer actors are capable of more than playing quirky GBFs. I could not possibly be more excited to tell you the ENTIRE main cast for my rom-com BROS will be ALL openly LGBTQ+ actors!! “Yes, even in all the straight roles! “In a perfect world, gay actors can play gay roles and gay actors can play straight roles, and straight actors can play straight roles and play gay roles, and we’re all mixing and matching because part of the fun and the challenge of being an actor or an actress is to play someone who you’re not,” he said.

A far-right pastor and conspiracy theorist has claimed that more Christian children are identifying as gay because of a “demonic spirit that comes after our seed.”Televangelist and mega-church pastor Kent Christmas, who helped spread the lie that Donald Trump won the 2020 election, made the claim during a recent sermon in front of thousands of followers. “We’re not gonna tell ’em they’re going to hell, we’re not gonna tell ’em they’re scum. “We’re going to put them on our platform to sing that our God is an awesome God. Related: Minnesota becomes 21st state to ban conversion therapyResearch has found that conversion therapy more than doubles the risk of suicidal ideation among gay and bisexual adults, while transgender people subjected to conversion therapy as children are four times more likely to attempt suicide. Christmas then falsely claimed that Trump won re-election in 2020 “by about 80 million votes.” (Trump lost by more than seven million votes to President Joe Biden.)

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – The Netherlands has sharply boosted security around Prime Minister Mark Rutte after police received signals of a possible attack by criminals linked to the drug trade, a Dutch newspaper reported on Monday, citing sources familiar with the matter. Although gun violence in the Netherlands is rare, killings and violence linked to the drug trade have become common in recent years, as underworld figures compete for territory. Dutch national security authorities declined to comment on the report. The former lawyer of the star witness had been killed in a similar fashion in front of his Amsterdam home in 2019. Other threats to politicians are not uncommon in the Netherlands.

A school district in Utah has banned Pride flags from classrooms, claiming that they are as “politically charged” as “Make America Great Again” flags. Davis School District also banned the display of Black Lives Matter flags in order to remain “neutral,” district spokesman Chris Williams told the Salt Lake Tribune. “These people who want to remove the flag, they don’t understand what it means to us,” Amanda Darrow, director of youth, family and education at the Utah Pride Center, told the Tribune. “That flag represents love and acceptance.”In a statement, the ACLU of Utah said, “Whether or not a school district has the legal ability to ban inclusive and supportive symbols from classrooms, it is bad policy for them to do so. We urge school administrators and teachers to adopt policies that make all students feel safe and included.”Related: Georgia student assaulted, dragged across floor for wearing LGBTQ Pride flagDavis School District’s decision contrasts with others in the state.

Goals by Emile Smith Rowe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Bukayo Saka crowned a majestic first-half display by a youthful Arsenal who were sharper and hungrier than a listless Tottenham. Arsenal, who were bottom after three games, are now in 10th place with nine points, ahead of Tottenham on goals scored. Tottenham have won only once in their last 29 league games away to Arsenal, but the nature of Sunday’s first-half capitulation will be a worry for their supporters. Too many of their players under-performed and their confidence looks shredded as they conceded three or more goals in three consecutive Premier League games for the first time since 2003. Saka glided all too easily past Sergio Reguilon on the right before delivering a low cross for Smith Rowe to stroke a first-time shot past keeper Hugo Lloris.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -President Tayyip Erdogan said Turkey still intended to buy a second batch of S-400 missile defense systems from Russia, a move that could deepen a rift with NATO ally Washington and trigger new U.S. sanctions. Washington says the S-400s pose a threat to its F-35 fighter jets and to NATO’s broader defense systems. Turkey says it was unable to procure air defense systems from any NATO ally on satisfactory terms. “In the future, nobody will be able to interfere in terms of what kind of defense systems we acquire, from which country at what level,” Erdogan said in an interview that aired on CBS News’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday. Talks continued between Russia and Turkey about the delivery of a second batch, which Washington has repeatedly said would almost certainly trigger new sanctions.

(Reuters) – New York Governor Kathy Hochul is considering employing the National Guard and out-of-state medical workers to fill hospital staffing shortages with tens of thousands of workers possibly losing their jobs for not meeting a Monday deadline for mandated COVID-19 vaccination. Hochul said the state was also looking at using National Guard officers with medical training to keep hospitals and other medical facilities adequately staffed. Some 16% of the state’s 450,000 hospital staff, or roughly 72,000 workers, have not been fully vaccinated, the governor’s office said. Hochul attended the Sunday service at a large church in New York City to ask Christians to help promote vaccines. It was not immediately clear how pending legal cases concerning religious exemptions would apply to the state’s plan to move ahead and terminate unvaccinated healthcare workers.
