Iran won't resume nuclear commitments until US lifts sanctions: Khamenei

Iran won't resume nuclear commitments until US lifts sanctions: KhameneiIran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Sunday the US must “completely lift” sanctions first, followed by verification by Tehran, before the Islamic republic returns to its nuclear deal commitments. “If they want Iran to return to its commitments … America must completely lift sanctions, and not just in words or on paper,” Khamenei said in a televised speech to air force commanders. “They must be lifted in action, and then we will verify and see if they have been properly lifted, and then return,” he added. The 2015 landmark deal has been hanging by a thread since US President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from it in 2018 and reimpose sanctions on Tehran. x Tehran a year later suspended its compliance with most key nuclear commitments to the deal. The new administration of US President Joe Biden has expressed willingness to return to the deal, but insisted that Tehran […]

Jeff Bezos to step down as Amazon CEO

Jeff Bezos to step down as Amazon CEOAmazon founder Jeff Bezos said Tuesday he would stand aside later this year as chief executive of the company he built from a startup into one of the world’s most valuable firms. The world’s richest person based on his Amazon stake, Bezos said he will transition to the role of executive chair in the third quarter, handing over the CEO role to Andy Jassy, who heads Amazon Web Services. The news came as Amazon reported a blowout holiday quarter with profits more than doubling to $7.2 billion and revenue jumping 44 percent to $125.6 billion — as pandemic lockdowns caused online sales to explode around the globe. x In a letter to Amazon employees, Bezos said he would “stay engaged in important Amazon initiatives” but would pivot towards philanthropic initiatives, including his Day One Fund and Bezos Earth Fund, and other business ventures in space exploration and journalism. “I’ve never […]

Biden sees 'some' Republican support for big Covid package

Biden sees 'some' Republican support for big Covid packageUS President Joe Biden on Wednesday said he expects “some” Republican support for his huge new Covid-19 economic relief package but signaled that Democrats should stay united and push ahead regardless. “I think we’ll get some Republicans,” he said in an Oval Office meeting with Democratic senators. The package being pitched by Democrats is worth $1.9 trillion and includes $1,400 stimulus checks to Americans hit by the drawn-out pandemic’s drag on the economy. A Republican counter-offer would total only $600 billion. x Biden, who came into office calling for unity in heavily divided Washington, said he was not open to reducing the cash payments, although he said that distribution of the checks could be “better” targeted. “People need it and frankly they’ve been promised it,” he said in a recording played on CNN of a conference call Biden had with House Democrats. “I’m not gonna start my administration by breaking […]

Iran's Rouhani rules out changes to nuclear dealPresident Hassan Rouhani on Wednesday ruled out changes to Iran’s nuclear accord with world powers and dismissed calls to broaden the terms of the deal and include regional countries. US President Joe Biden has voiced support for returning to the accord, from which Donald Trump exited, but has insisted that Tehran first resume full compliance and consider expanding the deal beyond the nuclear issue. Iran’s regional arch-rival, Saudi Arabia, has also called for a role in any future talks on the agreement. x “No clause of the JCPOA will change. Know this. And no one will be added to the JCPOA,” Rouhani said at a televised cabinet meeting, using the deal’s official name, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. “This is the agreement. If they want it, everyone comes into compliance. If they don’t, they can go live their lives,” he said. Trump withdrew the US from the JCPOA and […]

Google pays $3.8 mn to settle pay-hiring bias complaint

Google pays .8 mn to settle pay-hiring bias complaintGoogle PHOTO: AP/REX/Shutterstock US labour regulators late Monday said Google has agreed to pay $3.8 million to resolve allegations it discriminated against women engineers and Asian job-seekers. The US Department of Labor said most of the settlement money will go to 2,565 female employees in engineering positions as back pay and interest, and to nearly 3,000 women or candidates of Asian descent who were not chosen for engineering jobs. Google said the discrepancies were turned up during a routine internal analysis and it agreed to the settlement to correct the situation, denying it violated any laws. “We believe everyone should be paid based upon the work they do, not who they are, and invest heavily to make our hiring and compensation processes fair and unbiased,” a Google spokeswoman said in response to an AFP inquiry. She added that Google has annually analyzed its payroll data to look for discrepancies and […]
