NEW YORK — The two-game suspension of Cincinnati Reds outfielder Nick Castellanos for his role in an on-field brawl during the season’s opening weekend was upheld Monday by Major League Baseball special assistant John McHale Jr. Castellanos will serve the penalty during the first two games of a three-game series against Arizona that starts Tuesday. Michael Hill, MLB's new senior vice-president for on-field operations, issued the suspension April 5 and cited Castellanos for “his aggressive actions and for instigating a benches-clearing incident” during a game against St. Louis on April 3. Castellanos did not have to serve the penalty while the appeal was pending. Castellanos, who homered on opening day and hopped out of the batter's box before tossing his bat, was hit by a pitch from Cardinals pitcher Jake Woodford in the fourth inning on April 3. Castellanos retrieved the ball and offered to toss it back to Woodford before flipping it out of play. A wild pitch sent Castellanos scampering home from third and he scored with a headfirst slide for a 7-2 lead, bumping into Woodford, who took the throw from catcher Yadier Molina at the plate. As Castellanos began walking away, Molina rushed up and tapped him from behind, and the benches and bullpens emptied in a wild scene. Castellanos was ejected. He said afterward that it was raw emotion and excitement that caused him to yell after scoring and that he wasn’t trying to disrespect Woodford. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/hub/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports The Associated Press

The Rosen Law Firm represents investors throughout the globe, concentrating its practice in securities class actions and shareholder derivative litigation.

When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.

The president has long talked about the importance of faith in his life
U.S. Senator Joe Manchin said on Monday he supports a sweeping labor reform bill, giving the legislation some momentum after it passed in the House last month. The bill, introduced in February by Democratic Senator Patty Murray and supported by President Joe Biden, would bolster collective bargaining rights, allow unions to collect dues from non-members covered by their contracts, and establish penalties for corporations that violate workers' rights, among other measures.
OTTAWA — The federal government is looking to give workers and students a leg up with a budget that commits billions to training, benefits and debt relief, as those hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic try to dust themselves off. The first Liberal budget in more than two years aims to create nearly 500,000 training and work placements — 215,000 of them for students — in a bid to perk up the country's economic comeback. To that end, it pledges $2.4 billion over three years to developing skills and trades, with about 40 per cent earmarked for training in sectors ranging from health care to construction. It adds on $8.9 billion more to beef up the Canada Workers Benefit in a boost to low-wage workers, who will have a higher income threshold at which their benefit starts to shrink. “Low-wage workers in Canada work harder than anyone else in this country, for less pay. In the past year they've faced both significant infection risks and layoffs. And many live below the poverty line, even though they work full-time," Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland said Monday. The benefit boost — given in the form of a tax refund — will extend income top-ups to about a million more Canadians and lift nearly 100,000 people out of poverty, she said. The income threshold will rise this year to nearly $23,000 for single individuals without dependents and more than $26,000 for families. The change will allow a single, full-time minimum-wage earner to receive about $1,000 more in benefits. Geneviève Tellier, a political science professor from the University of Ottawa, said the added work incentive and the budget's emphasis on training represent a "market-oriented vision" of government assistance. "They are saying you can work and not be penalized, up to a certain point," she said, referring to the workers benefit. Notably absent from the 739-page document is any mention of a guaranteed basic income, which Liberals voted to include in their policy book at their convention earlier this month in spite of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s stated hesitation on the issue. "I think it’s the end of the conversation for a CERB (Canada Emergency Response Benefit) that would be permanent, the $2,000 per month for every Canadian," Tellier said. "I don’t see any signs in this budget that they want to think about it." The budget also allots $5.7 billion over five years to helping post-secondary students, though the vast majority is earmarked for this year and next. Some $3.1 billion of the total will go to doubling federal student grants in that two-year timeframe, on top of $393 million set aside to waive interest on federal student loans for an extra year until March 2023. The government also plans to raise the threshold for repayment assistance to $40,000 for borrowers living alone, meaning anyone living under their own roof and earning that amount or less would not need to make interest payments. The pandemic has been particularly rough on students, with about 50 per cent unemployed in July and August, according to Statistics Canada. The budget measures mark an attempt to help hard-hit workers and students, but also to keep them from crossing over to the more spend-happy NDP in a possible federal election this year. New Democrats have proposed multiple policies to appeal to those groups, including a $20 minimum wage, billions in cancelled student debt, universal pharmacare and a wealth tax. Other Liberal measures include bumping the federal minimum wage to $15, pledging $300 million to programs for Black and women entrepreneurs and other underrepresented groups, and recommitting to protect gig workers through promised amendments to the Canada Labour Code. About 300,000 Canadians who had a job before the pandemic remain out of work, Freeland said. "More Canadians may lose their jobs in this month's lockdowns," she said. "That is a lot of human tragedies." This report by The Canadian Press was first published April 19, 2021. Christopher Reynolds, The Canadian Press

Public health measures originally scheduled to end today in B.C. have been extended for five weeks, through the end of the May long weekend. Premier John Horgan said new orders will be put in place on Friday that will restrict people’s ability to leave their health authority. This will be enforced by random roadside stops and additional restrictions on travel via BC Ferries, who will stop accepting recreational vehicle bookings and ask all customers if their travel is essential. Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry reported 2,960 new cases of COVID-19 over the weekend: 1,027 from Friday to Saturday, 933 from Saturday to Sunday and a further 1,000 in the last 24 hours. Since the pandemic began, B.C. has recorded 120,040 cases. Of the new cases, 696 are in the Vancouver Coastal Health region (including Richmond), 1,845 in the Fraser Health region, 108 in the Island Health region, 211 in the Interior Health region and 100 in the Northern Health region. There are 9,353 active cases of COVID-19 in B.C. and 441 people are hospitalized, 138 of whom are in intensive care. A further 14,711 people are under active public health monitoring. Health Minister Adrian Dix said there is a great deal of pressure on B.C.’s healthcare system, and that the occupancy rate in COVID-19 hospitals is higher than the provincial average. There has been an increase in hospitalizations in 20-29 year olds, and the most notable increases have been in 50- to 59-year-old men and 55- to 59-year-old women. Health authorities did not provide an update on cases that are variants of concern. To date, 1,380,160 doses of Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and AstraZeneca-SII COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in B.C. The AstraZeneca vaccine will soon be available to people aged 40 and older at pharmacies across the province. There will be additional AstraZeneca-only clinics set up for people aged 40 and older in high priority communities that are seeing a large number of cases relative to their population. Sadly, there were eight new virus-related deaths reported today, bringing that total to 1,538. One of the new deaths was a child under the age of two, who had pre-existing health conditions but died as a result of complications from COVID-19. Several healthcare facility outbreaks were declared over, but active outbreaks continue at five long-term care, assisted living and independent living facilities and five acute care facilities.
