They sold over 21,000 coins in February. Through most of 2015, the country’s gold reserves stood at more than $100 million. US. Finance Department figures show that Canada sold 41,106 ounces of gold coins in December and another 32,860 ounces of gold coins in January.
That left Canada holding 21,929 ounces of gold in its reserves as of the end of January, and as mentioned, all that is left now is 77 ounces after February.
Pretty funny considering the globe is moving to a gold based currency system.
A $25 million racketeering and money laundering conspiracy that was at the center of the "largest college admission scam ever" saw its ringleader unmasked thanks to the Wall Street Journal. The man at the center of the scheme is 58-year-old William Rick Singer.
Search warrants show Jupiter police found $183,000 in bank safety deposit boxes belonging to two women who authorities say owned the spa and an employee. Officers also froze numerous bank accounts belonging to Orchids of Asia Spa owners Hua Zhang and Lei Wang, but the amounts in those accounts were not released. They say they also seized the business’s surveillance equipment. The women are charged with numerous felonies involving a prostitution business, while Kraft is charged with misdemeanor solicitation. All have denied wrongdoing.
A multi-jurisdiction investigation closed 10 spas between Palm Beach and Orlando and saw 300 men arrested. While no one has been charged with human trafficking, authorities have said they believe the employees were brought to the U.S. from China.
California officials say their policies limiting cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities promote trust between immigrant communities and law enforcement and encourage witnesses and victims to report crime.
The U.S. Department of Justice argued in court documents that the Constitution gives the federal government pre-eminent power to regulate immigration, and the three laws obstruct those efforts.
“The bills, individually and collectively, mark an extraordinary and intentional assault on the federal government’s enforcement of the immigration laws,” Justice Department attorneys said in a filing.
Somewhere in the Midwest, a restaurant is frying foods with oil made from gene-edited soybeans. That’s according to the company making the oil, which says it’s the first commercial use of a gene-edited food in the U.S.
Calyxt said it can’t reveal its first customer for competitive reasons, but CEO Jim Blome said the oil is “in use and being eaten.”
Gov. Gavin Newsom is suspending the death penalty in California, calling it discriminatory and immoral and granting reprieves to the 737 condemned inmates on the nation’s largest Death Row.
“I do not believe that a civilized society can claim to be a leader in the world as long as its government continues to sanction the premeditated and discriminatory execution of its people,” Newsom said in a statement accompanying an executive order, to be issued Wednesday, declaring a moratorium on capital punishment in the state. “The death penalty is inconsistent with our bedrock values and strikes at the very heart of what it means to be a Californian.”
Muscheler’s team analysed two ice cores drilled from the Greenland ice sheet and found that both contained spikes in isotopes of beryllium and chlorine that date back to about 660BC. The material appears to be the radioactive remnants of a solar storm that battered the atmosphere.
The scientists calculate that the storm sent at least 10bn protons per square centimetre into the atmosphere. “A solar proton event of such magnitude occurring in modern times could result in severe disruption of satellite-based technologies, high frequency radio communication and space-based navigation systems,” they write in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Judge Amy Berman Jackson sentenced the 69-year-old Manafort to 60 months in prison on the first of two criminal counts lodged by special counsel Robert Mueller. But 30 of those months will be served concurrently with Manafort's prior sentence in a separate case, also lodged by Mueller.
Jackson sentenced Manafort to 13 months of consecutive prison time on his second criminal count.
A recent survey for the Associated Press and NORC shows that only 28 percent of Americans are willing to pay even $10 per month to fight climate change. Sixty-eight percent say they wouldn’t be willing to pay $10 per month in higher electric bills to combat climate change.
Indeed, 43 percent of all Americans support the “Green New Deal” concept, according to a poll commissioned by the left-wing think-tank Data for Progress.
Given its massive cost, why do so many Americans support it? Probably because they don’t think they themselves will pay its costs. They think other people will.
The Sonoma County district attorney’s office said in a statement Tuesday that there was “insufficient evidence” to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the utility acted with reckless disregard for human life in causing the fires.
Prosecutors in Napa, Humboldt and Lake counties also declined to file charges after an “extensive” review of the cases, during which they consulted with the state attorney general’s office, the statement said.
Cardinal George Pell, 77, faced as many as 50 years in prison after being convicted in December for the molestation of two choir boys while he was the archbishop of Melbourne in the 1990s. Pell must serve a minimum of three years and eight months before he is eligible for parole.
He will spend the rest of his life as a registered sex offender.
Democratic state Rep. Dar’shun Kendrick seeks to regulate male bodies in response to what she contests is the regulation of women’s wombs.
The bill would require men to ask permission from their partners before taking Viagra or erectile dysfunction medication and wait 24 hours before purchasing a sex toy. The lawmaker wants to classify sex without a condom as “aggravated assault” and ban vasectomy procedures.
Men would also be forced to begin paying child support before a woman reaches eight weeks in pregnancy.
Ggggooooodddd morning! Introducing my "testicular bill of rights" legislative package. You want some regulation of bodies and choice? Done! pic.twitter.com/5E8HBRSc9l
The Defense Department has approved a new policy that will largely bar transgender troops and military recruits from transitioning to another sex, and require most individuals to serve in their birth gender.
The memo outlining the new policy was obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press, and it comes after a lengthy and complicated legal battle. It falls short of the all-out transgender ban that was initially ordered by President Donald Trump. But it will likely force the military to eventually discharge transgender individuals who need hormone treatments or surgery and can’t or won’t serve in their birth gender.
Modern HIV treatment and prevention can make possible the goal of ending the HIV epidemic. People living with HIV who remain on successful treatment and achieve an undetectable viral load can live a near-normal lifespan and cannot transmit HIV to others. The adoption of pre-exposure prophylaxis by people who are HIV negative can also decrease HIV acquisition by up to 97 percent. President Trump’s State of the Union pledge to end the HIV epidemic in the United States by 2030 is thus not just an aspiration, but a mission we can accomplish.
The Trump administration’s budget request for fiscal 2020 seems to back his pledge with the resources needed to make it possible. Guided by an adequately funded new federal HIV strategy, the aim is to provide support to 48 counties, the District of Columbia, San Juan, Puerto Rico, and seven states with the highest number of new HIV diagnoses in the country. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, these cities, municipalities, and states, viral “hot-spots," accounted for more than 50 percent of new HIV diagnoses in recent years.
