New Zealand’s virus success unleashes runaway housing prices

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — New Zealand’s success in battling the coronavirus has unleashed an unanticipated problem: skyrocketing house prices. When the pandemic first hit, most experts predicted house prices would fall. Instead, prices have risen by more than 19% over the past year, putting them out of reach for many people wanting to buy their first home. The government, which has come under increasing criticism for its response to the housing squeeze, on Thursday announced the first of what it says will be a series of moves to address the issue by ordering the nation’s central bank to consider the impact on house prices when making decisions. Reserve Bank Governor Adrian Orr said it welcomed the new directive, which is

New Brunswick COVID-19 vaccination effort ramps up after sluggish start

New Brunswick, with one of the slowest COVID-19[1] vaccination rollouts[2] in the country, is racing to give thousands of nursing home residents their first doses this week. Long-term care homes have accounted for 17 of the province’s 26 coronavirus deaths, yet many of the residents were waiting for their vaccinations weeks after health care workers had theirs. Of the more than 11,000 people who have been fully vaccinated in the province, fewer than 15 per cent come from this most vulnerable population. As of Wednesday, New Brunswick had administered more than 26,000 total doses, to about 3.4 per cent of the province’s population. Most of those inoculated have been health care workers – 9,395 have received both doses, while 1,626

Biden revokes Trump orders on ‘anarchist’ cities and more

President Joe Biden on Wednesday formally revoked a series of presidential orders and memorandum signed by Donald Trump, including one that sought to cut funding from several cities the 45th president deemed “anarchist” havens and another mandating that federal buildings should be designed in a classical esthetic. Since taking office last month, Biden has revoked dozens of Trump orders and issued dozens more of his own as he’s sought to target foundational aspects of Trump’s legacy and promote aspect of his own agenda without going through Congress. The latest slate of revocations targeted a grab-bag of issues, including a few that Trump signed in his last months in office. Trump issued a memorandum in September that sought to identify municipal

Australia passes law to make Google, Facebook pay for news

CANBERRA, Australia — Australia’s laws forcing Google and Facebook to pay for news are ready to take effect, though the laws’ architect said it will take time for the digital giants to strike media deals. The Parliament on Thursday passed amendments to the so-called News Media Bargaining Code agreed between Treasurer Josh Frydenberg and Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg on Tuesday. In return for the changes, Facebook agreed to lift a ban on Australians accessing and sharing news. Rod Sims, the competition regulator who drafted the code, said he was happy that the amended legislation would address the market imbalance between Australian news publishers and the two gateways to the internet. “All signs are good,” Sims told Australian Broadcasting Corp.

Lawmakers argue over potential commission to study Capitol riot

Republican leaders objected to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s draft for a bipartisan 1/6 commission to study the January 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol, taking issue with both the proposed makeup of the group, as well as the proposed focus of the commission’s investigation.  House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell both said Wednesday that the commission should be equally split between members appointed by Democrats and Republicans, citing the makeup of the 9/11 commission, which studied the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and is often cited as a successful model.  “It both helped the effectiveness of the investigation itself and helped give the whole country confidence in its work and recommendations,” McConnell said on the
