U.S. weekly jobless claims increase, labor market remains tight

Weekly jobless claims increase 13,000 to 196,000

Four-week moving average of claims falls 2,500 to 189,250

Continuing claims rise 38,000 to 1.688 million

WASHINGTON, Feb 9 (Reuters) – The number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits increased more than expected last week, but the underlying trend continued to point to a tight labor eVDen evE NAKLiyaT market.

The jobs market has remained resilient despite growing economic headwinds from the Federal Reserve’s interest rate increases.While labor market strength keeps the U.S. central policy on its monetary policy tightening path, it also suggests that a much anticipated recession is nowhere near.

„We would be crying wolf if we said we thought there was a recession signal in the weekly unemployment claims data this week,” said Christopher Rupkey, chief economist at FWDBONDS in New York.If you have any questions regarding where and how you can utilize eVDEn EVe NakliYAt, you can contact us at the site. „Recession is not around the corner with layoffs this low, and the downturn, if it is coming at all, is months away.”

Initial claims for state unemployment benefits rose 13,000 to a seasonally adjusted 196,000 for the week ended Feb.4, the Labor Department said on Thursday. That was the first increase in claims since the second last week of December. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast 190,000 claims for the latest week.

The four-week moving average of claims, considered a better measure of labor market trends as it strips out week-to-week volatility, fell 2,500 to 189,250, the lowest level since last April.Unadjusted claims rose 9,628 to 234,654 last week.

There was a jump in claims in California as well as notable increases in Ohio and Illinois. Those rises offset decreases in Georgia, New Jersey and Texas.

Claims have remained low despite high-profile layoffs in the technology industry as well as the interest rate-sensitive finance and housing sectors.Walt Disney and Zoom Video Communications added to the growing list of companies laying off workers, announcing 7,000 and 1,300 jobs cuts, EVdeN eVE nAkLiyAT respectively, this week.

Economists say most of the companies, especially in the technology industry, overhired during the COVID-19 pandemic.They noted that small businesses continued to seek workers.

There is anecdotal evidence that companies are generally reluctant to lay off workers after experiencing difficulties recruiting during the pandemic.

Workers remain scarce in some industries.There were 1.9 job openings for every unemployed person in December, government data showed last week. According to an Institute for Supply Management survey last Friday, some services businesses in January reported they were „unable to hire qualified labor,” saying that „supply is thin.”

U.S.stocks opened higher. The dollar fell against a basket of currencies. U.S. Treasury prices rose.

STRONG JOBS MARKET

Economists speculated that severance packages were delaying the filing of unemployment benefits claims, while the abundance of vacancies made it easier for laid-off workers to find jobs.

„If the company offers severance, the claims are not counted until the severance expires,” said Gus Faucher, chief economist at PNC Financial in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.”But even so, the job market remains remarkably strong.”

Economists also believed that seasonal adjustment factors, the model the government uses to strip out seasonal fluctuations from the data, were keeping claims lower.

The seasonal adjustment factors for 2023 will be updated at the end of March.Applying the average seasonal factors for the prior two years with the same calendar configuration as 2023 would put claims at 210,000 in the latest week and eVDEN Eve NakLiYaT a four-week average of 200,000, according to Conrad DeQuadros, eVDEn EVE naKLiYAT senior economic advisor at Brean Capital.

„Nonetheless, this would still be a low reading on claims and indicate that either involuntary separations remain low and/ or those who lose their jobs are quickly re-employed elsewhere,” DeQuadros said.”There is no sign of easing of labor market tightness here.”

The claims report also showed the number of people receiving benefits after an initial week of aid, a proxy for hiring, rose 38,000 to 1.688 million during the week ending Jan. 28.

Lower layoffs have been a major contributor to strong job gains.The government reported last Friday that nonfarm payrolls surged by 517,000 jobs in January, the most in six months, after rising by 260,000 in December. The unemployment rate fell to more than a 53-1/2-year low of 3.4% from 3.5% in December.

Fed Chair Jerome Powell said on Tuesday that the central bank’s fight to tame inflation could last „quite a bit of time,” in a nod to January’s blowout job gains.Since March, the U.S. central bank has hiked its policy rate by 450 basis points from near zero to the 4.50%-4.75% range.

Safety improved on world's first liquid hydrogen carrier after…

By Sonali Paul

MELBOURNE, Feb 6 (Reuters) – A valve failure that caused a flame to flare up briefly on the world’s first liquid hydrogen carrier before its first trip from Australia to Japan highlighted the need for strong fault detection systems, an Australian safety report found.

The cause of the incident on the Suiso Frontier on Jan. 25 last year has been fixed, the Australian Transportation Safety Board said in a report released last week.Should you have any questions relating to where and also tips on how to use EvdEn eVE nAkLiYAT, you are able to e-mail us in our own web site. The ship had loaded liquid hydrogen for the trip the day before.

The ship’s builder, Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI) , was not immediately available to comment on the report.

The malfunction did not stop the ship going ahead with its test journey, EvDeN evE NAKliyaT and KHI said in March the trip had shown that shipping liquid hydrogen was technically feasible.

Building ships to carry super-chilled hydrogen is one of many factors holding back hydrogen use, eVDeN eve NakliyaT seen as key to helping the world decarbonise to fight climate change.

The malfunction on the Suiso Frontier was because of an automated valve in its gas combustion unit being damaged during the ship’s journey from Japan to Australia as it had the wrong specification for the control system’s power supply, the safety bureau said in its report released on Feb.2.

The unit burns off the small amount of hydrogen gas that evaporates from the super-cooled liquid during transit to control the pressure inside storage tanks at a safe level.

When the valve failed, an air fan damper closed, overheating the gas combustion unit, which caused the hydrogen flame inside the unit to flare up through a vent on the ship’s deck.

The unit did not have equipment to detect the closing of the air damper and had ineffective flame scanners, so the combustion unit’s alarm and shut-down mechanisms did not activate in time to stop the flame flaring through the vent.”This incident highlights the importance of ensuring automated shipboard operating systems are equipped with safety controls to prevent hazardous consequences in the event of a malfunction,” the agency said.

The German firm that built the gas combustion unit, eVDeN eVe naKliYaT Saacke, has since installed new equipment on the unit’s air fan discharge dampers and has programmed the unit to shut down if a fault is detected, the bureau said.(Reporting by Sonali Paul in Melbourne; Additional reporting by Yuka Obayashi in Tokyo; Editing by Christian Schmollinger)

Living on the EDGE: Homes inch ever closer to falling into the sea

Dozens of families on the east coast of England could be forced to abandon their homes as coastal erosion threatens to doom their properties to the sea. 

A recent report by climate group One Home estimated that coastal homes in England worth a total of £584million could be lost to cliff collapses by 2100. 

The report accounts for 2,218 homes across 21 coastal communities that have been brought closer to crumbling cliffs over the years.

Some homeowners expressed nervousness about having children stay overnight while others say they are too scared to cut the grass holding together the narrow stretches of turf along the cliff edges.

Grenadier Guard Lance Martin, 65, is among the householders in Hemsby, Norfolk who may be forced to move homes.

Mr Martin is living in the last house left on his road, The Marrams, in a one-bed detached house where the cliff edge hugs his back patio fence.

His 11 neighbours have all been forced to abandon their properties to the sea since 2017, when Mr Martin moved in.

He only managed to remain on his property by dragging it 10.5 metres back from the cliff edge with a tractor after the 2018 Beast from the East storm ate away metres of ground from under his kitchen.

In 2017 Рwhen Mr Martin bought his £95,000 house Рhe was told by an environmental impact study that would have 30 to 40 years before the cliffs reached his house, as the coastline 40 metres away was eroding by roughly one metre each year.

Three months later he had to physically cut the back of the house off and EVdEn eVE NAkliyAT drop it into the sea to stop the rest of his house being pulled with it.

Half of Mr Martin's house has already been lost to the sea. He paid a man with a tractor to drag what remained of his property another 10 metres from the cliff edge

‘I was standing in the kitchen and heard a great big horrendous crack.I looked down and saw the sea underneath my feet,’ Mr Martin explained.

He has watched his neighbours move away one by one as their houses were demolished by the council after being deemed a public health and safety risk. 

He said: ‘It was horrible, some went slowly, some very quickly.I got the council to delay demolishing my house because I was determined to save my property.’

He was given two days to ‘pull his house back’ from the cliff. He hired a man with a tractor and a winch and together they felled two telegraph poles at the front and back of the property and pulled the house back by nearly 11 metres.

Ian Brennan is Chairman of the Save Hemsby Coastline charity, which has spent 10 years campaigning in an effort to convince Great Yarmouth Borough Council to take the erosion of the village seriously.

The 63-year-old retired telecoms manager lives further into the village but cares deeply about the problems his friends and neighbours face.

According to Mr Brennan, 90 homes are at risk of being lost in Hemsby over the next 25 years.

‘Every time a storm hits the residents are nervous that they may have to walk away from their house with nothing but a carrier bag.

‘That’s the mental health impact we’re talking about.These people deserve to get a good night’s sleep – a rock berm will buy us 25 years.

Thirteen miles up the coast is Happisburgh, Norfolk, a village that has also experienced the loss of more than an entire street and 34 homes in the last 20 years.

Retired teacher Bryony Nierop-Reading, 77, lost her bungalow to erosion during a huge tidal surge in 2013. She had moved into a caravan further inland that night because she felt so unsafe in her home.

The next morning, she found the bungalow was still standing, but the back third of her home was hanging metres off of a cliff edge – that used to be solid ground.

‘To go from having a house to live in to not having a house to live in is shattering.It made me understand more how people who suffered in the tsunami in 2010 – there were pictures of people just sitting around,’ she recalled.

‘You get hit by the shock, then you can’t make decisions. It took me about six months before I could think properly.I struggled.’

A week after the storm struck, North Norfolk Council told Ms¬†Nierop-Reading she couldn’t live in the caravan on her land. She pushed back against the council’s ruling but after four years of legal battles she ultimately lost the fight.

In 2018, she bought a two-bed semi-detached house for £99,000 at the end of the road.

‘I could have moved inland but I knew that if I did, I’d be like everybody else down the road who thinks erosion is somebody else’s problem,’ she explained.

‘I thought it would keep my mind concentrated if I lived on the edge.My family were very cross with me.’

The tarmac on Ms Nierop-Reading’s road, Beach Road, drops away suddenly 40 metres away from her front door.¬†

According to her measurements the road has lost eight metres in the last 12 months alone. She says the council are doing nothing to stop it.

Insurance companies also won’t cover for damage caused by erosion.

Though she’s worried about losing the value of her house, Ms Nierop-Reading said she is more concerned about what will happen when she’s no longer here.

Ms Nierop-Reading, who was widowed last year, said: ‘The government’s response is to „adapt”- all that means is not doing anything about the problem.

‘As a country we cannot ignore the fact that we are losing land all the time.

‘How long can they carry on shunting people inland?If the country gets smaller and smaller due to unaddressed erosion we will have a smaller country with an enlarged population with no way to feed them and house them.’

Nicola Bayless, a 47-year-old nurse, is Ms Nierop-Reading’s next-door neighbour.She has lived on the road for 19 years.¬†

Her home is attached to¬†Ms Nierop-Reading’s house but faces inland. The pair are baffled by the reluctance to use any sea defences by the government.

‘As a teenager I used to come down here to my parents’ chalet – that’s no longer here.I’m very upset and stressed about the prospect of moving,’ Ms Bayless said.

‘I fell in love with the area and thought this is where we wanted to stay- we want our children to grow up somewhere lovely.’

Ms¬†Bayless said the prospect of moving out of her three bedroom home within the next ten years – which is when she estimates the cliff will be on her doorstep – has left her feeling ‘very stressed and upset.’

‘You never know when your time is up really.It’s like renting. One day you could have another Beast from the East and lose half a field,’ she said.

‘Your house shakes. I opened the curtain the next morning in 2018 and thought, „Where the hell has the field gone?”‘

Similarly, the roads leading to East Yorkshire’s erosion hotspots are littered with signs advertising ‘holiday homes’,¬† many with price tags of ¬£100,100 to ¬£200,000.

Planning consent has also been granted for hundreds of new houses on fields just inland from the static caravans perched perilously above a 50 foot drop to the sea at Holderness.

Many of the caravan dwellers have seen entire rows of the caravan pitches in front of them topple into the sea in recent years.

Whether your pitch is a hundred yards either way of the ugly sea defences already scarring the sandy beaches stretching away to Filey Light House can make all the difference, residents stressed.

‘I always wanted to live by the sea but I could not afford a second house,’¬†Carol Stoker, 62, a retired secondary teacher from Halifax, West Yorkshire, said.

Ms Stoker bought her caravan about four years ago.She experienced the impacts of coastal erosion that same year. 

‘There was a big cliff fall and about 3 metres went. There used to be a car park in front of us then,’ she said.

‘When you go out for a walk you see a crack in the ground.The next time you pass by you see it has got deeper. The next time that section of the cliff has gone completely.

‘The Government should do more because it is not just the caravans at risk – a load of agricultural land has been lost too.’

She said: ‘Thorpeness isn’t my main concern – it’s quite a wealthy village with a lot of second homeowners.There’s so many other places along the east coast who simply don’t have the money to defend their houses – and it’s their only property they’re living in with their children.

‘We’re trying to do as much as we can to raise awareness and raise money to be ready for when sea levels rise.’

Another homeowner in Thorpness, Ben Brown, says his home is in a similar situation to his neighbours’.

Ben Brown, 52, whose home is a mere 70 metres from the cliff, said: 'We knew about the issue and we had a survey done before we bought it to let us know how long we had before there would be trouble'

Although the farmer was aware of the coastal erosion problem on the coast when they bought the property two years ago, he was told by surveyors that it wouldn’t be a serious issue for another 60 years.

The 52-year-old, whose home is a mere 70 metres from the cliff, said: ‘We knew about the issue and we had a survey done before we bought it to let us know how long we had before there would be trouble.

‘Things have accelerated so fast since then, and although the survey said it would be 60 years, I think it will be a lot sooner if nothing is done.

‘We live over the track so we’re not quite at the forefront yet but the house opposite unfortunately had to be taken down.

‘It’s definitely a worry because we’ve invested a lot of money here and we expected to have it a lot longer – it’s awful and eVden EVE nAKliyAT we’re scared for the future.¬†

‘But I think there’s a plan being put together now and the intention is to get the cliff protected.’

Confusion reigned at

Confusion reigned at ‘s school in ¬†on Thursday after the principal said it was closing permanently, only for parents hours later to email all and say classes would continue.

Reports then emerged that the teachers had quit – following the string of controversial and antisemitic rants its founder has made in recent weeks.

It was not clear how many teachers had quit, and how many remained, but the chaos comes amid  following his tweets.

Donda Academy, in the Simi Valley, is highly secretive, with parents signing a non-disclosure agreement to keep the school’s location secret and agreeing to say nothing about it.

There are believed to be around 100 students from pre-K to 12th grade paying $15,000 a year, and 16 teachers.

On Wednesday, the principal,¬†Jason Angell, sent an email to parents explaining that West, 45, had decided to close the school ‘effective immediately,’ with classes being cancelled as of Thursday.

Around midnight on Wednesday, however, parents at the exclusive Christian school received the following morning.

‘Join us tomorrow morning in worship for the return of Donda Academy,’ the email read.¬†

‘With the help of our parents and community, we are back and returning with a vengeance!’

West returned to Instagram this week after being banned earlier this month, announcing he lost $2 billion in a single day, in an apparent reference to Adidas dropping his Yeezy shoe line

West returned to Instagram t¬†around his anti-Semitic behavior, which has included repeated claims of ‘Jewish people’ in the media conspiring against him, and Planned Parenthood controlling black populations through genocidal abortions.¬†

On Thursday the rapper said on Instagram that he ‘lost 2 billion dollars in one day’ in an apparent reference to the flock of brands which have dropped him in the wake of his bigoted behavior.

This week Adidas dropped his Yeezy shoe line – a deal which was worth $1.5billion – with Gap, Footlocker, TJ Maxx, and Balenciaga all following suit and cutting ties with the rapper.

Donda Academy’s closure and sudden reopening come just two months after it started up in August.¬†

The school did not respond to DailyMail.com requests for comment. 

The exclusive pre-K through 12 school – named after West’s mother, Donda – is located in a secret location in the Simi Valley just north of Los Angeles, and charges $15,000 per student.About half the student body receives financial aid and EvdeN evE NaKliyat scholarships, EvdEN Eve nakliyaT according to The Post.

There are reportedly a number of celebrities’ children in attendance – including R&B singer¬†Keyshia Cole’s son Daniel – and the school is well known for its high-powered basketball team.Rising star Robert Dillingham, 17, plays for the school, and NBA players like Celtics player Jaylen Brown have made appearances at the school.¬†

Students wear all black Balenciaga uniforms and Yeezy shoes designed by West himself.

Despite running the school, West’s children do not attend, and he has clashed with Kim Kardashian on the matter.

West previously complained on social media that Kim wouldn’t agree to send their four children for ‘[two] days at one school, three days at another.’¬†

As of September the school had not yet been accredited, according to the , which means colleges might not accept diplomas from the school.

The Donda Academy website states that the school’s goal is ‘to¬†provide the youth with the passion, purpose and spiritual foundations they need to thrive in tomorrow’s world.’

The curriculum has a strong focus on Christianity, the arts, and math and science.Students can take parkour as a physical activity, and the school has a strong high school basketball program.

Angell emailed parents on Wednesday announcing the school’s closure for the remainder of the school year.

‘At the discretion of our founder, Donda Academy will close for the remainder of the 2022-2023 school year effective immediately, he wrote.

‘There is no school tomorrow [Thursday].’

Angell noted that the school’s leadership would help parents and students transition into their new school, and added that the Donda would begin ‘afresh’ in September 2023.¬†

On Wednesday the school’s basketball team was booted from the The Scholastic Play-By-Play Classics tournament, saying West’s ‘words and actions violate our values as a company and a country, and what we seek to ensure at all of our events – a spirit of diversity, sportsmanship, inclusion, equity and mutual respect.’

Representatives for the tournament expressed their remorse that West’s words cost his students the experience of participating in the coveted high school basketball tournament.¬†

‘While we are firm in our reasoning for this decision, it does not diminish our heartache and regret for Donda’s hardworking athletes who will lose out the most as a result of Kanye’s actions,’ the school added.¬†

‘Unfortunately, we cannot in good conscience host an organization founded and directed by Mr.West at our events.’

On Wednesday, the rapper was embarrassingly escorted out of Skechers headquarters after showing up unannounced to pitch his Yeezy brand a day after being dropped by Adidas and having his songs banned by Peloton.

Ye was taken out by two ‘executives’ according to a statement released by the company Wednesday afternoon.¬†

¬†said in a statement: ‘Considering Ye was engaged in unauthorized filming, two Skechers executives escorted him and his party from the building after a brief conversation. Skechers is not considering and has no intention of working with West.

‘We condemn his recent divisive remarks and do not tolerate anti-Semitism or any other form of hate speech.The Company would like to again stress that West showed up unannounced and uninvited to Skechers corporate offices. When you have virtually any issues regarding where by and how to employ EvDeN eVe NAkliYaT, it is possible to email us in the page. ‘¬†

West may have faced additional opposition if he had gotten a preapproved sit-down meeestimates comes from real estate, cash, his music catalog, and a 5 percent stake in ex-wife Kim Kardashian’s shapewear firm, Skims.

But as corporations around the world break off deals with Ye, music streaming service said it would not remove the rapper’s music unless his label requested it.

Recent anti-Semitic remarks made by the rapper are ‘just awful comments,’ and eVdEn Eve nAkLiYaT would have warranted removal from Spotify for violating its policies if they had been on a podcast or recording, Spotify chief Daniel Ek said.

However, music from the artist now known as Ye does not violate anti-hate policies, and any anti-Semitic comments he has made cannot be found on the music streaming platform.

‘It’s really just his music, and his music doesn’t violate our policy,’ said Ek, adding, ‘It’s up to his label, if they want to take action or not.’

Universal Music’s Def Jam label, which owns the copyright to West’s recordings from 2002 through 2016, and continued distributing his releases until last year, issued a statement condemning Ye’s remarks, saying: ‘There is no place for anti-Semitism in our society’.But the label has not asked for EVDEn Eve nAKLiyat the removal of Ye’s recordings, many of which are critically acclaimed works.

Kuol had been released back into the community on a $20,000 surety despite police objections. 

He had faced Shepparton Magistrates’ Court in June after police charged him with eight bail offences and applied to revoke his bail.¬†

The former bank employee had previously fronted court accused of stealing more than $121,000 from National Australia Bank customers where he was employed in country Victoria.

Police Gang Crime Squad’s Echo Taskforce Detective Senior Constable Daniel Chapman told the court Kuol was on bail with a $20,000 surety when he allegedly got another man to sign in for him at the police station on seven occasions.

Kuol also allegedly tried to sell 13 grams of cocaine to an undercover cop and used counterfeit notes to buy a PlayStation 5 off a Melbourne man who advertised online.

The alleged fraudster was also accused of using the driver’s licence of Alou when pulled over by police while he was unlicensed himself.¬†

Police further allege¬†Kuol¬†used another person’s credit card to buy return plane tickets to the United States.

Magistrate David Faram granted Kuol bail despite his atrocious history of failing to obey court orders.

‘Never refer to „third” parties, they’ve done nothing besides piggy backing the work another does on the park and in life, manipulation is at an all time high in this current era.’

A British citizen has been arrested in on US criminal charges alleging that he helped a billionaire Russian oligarch evade sanctions relating to his $90 million megayacht.

Richard Masters, 52, was arrested on Friday by the Spanish Guardia Civil and faces extradition to the US on charges that he tried to hide , the Tango, from authorities.

Also charged in connection with the alleged plot was Vladislav Osipov, 51, a Russian national with dual Swiss citizenship, who remains at large. 

Masters and Osipov are both charged with conspiracy to defraud the United States and to commit offenses against the United States, violating sanctions laws, and money laundering. 

Vekselberg is a billionaire and close ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin who heads the Moscow-based Renova Group, a conglomerate encompassing metals, mining, tech and other assets.

Since 2018, Vekselberg’s assets in the US have been frozen, and US companies are forbidden from doing business with him and his entities, but fresh sanctions targeting his yacht were enacted following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine last year.

Masters is the founder and director of Master Yachts, a yacht management company in Palma de Mallorca.

The company’s website boasts that it is ‘renowned for its highly ethical, no-nonsense and pragmatic approach’ and committed to ‘transparency and integrity’.

However, US prosecutors allege that after Vekselberg was sanctioned in April 2018, Masters’s company took over the management of Tango and conspired to evade US sanctions.¬†

According to the indictment, Masters cooked up the fake yacht name 'the Fanta'

According to the indictment, Masters cooked up the fake yacht name ‘the Fanta’

According to the indictment, Masters cooked up the fake name ‘the Fanta’ and used various workarounds to avoid sanctions, such as payments in other currencies and through third parties.

As a result, the trappings of Tango, including its satellite television, luxury goods, and teleconferencing software, were all US-origin products and services supplied by US companies, in violation of sanctions laws, prosecutors say.

‘Facilitators of sanctions evasion enable the oligarchs supporting Vladimir Putin’s regime to flout US law,’ said United States Attorney Matthew M.Graves.¬†

‘The United States will not allow its financial institutions and persons to be manipulated or defrauded for the purposes of benefitting those supporting an illegal war,’ he added.

In investigation was coordinated through¬†a Justice Department task force known as KleptoCapture, aimed at enforcing sweeping sanctions against Russia’s oligarchs following the invasion of Ukraine.¬†

‘These men made their decisions, and now face the consequences of a failed attempt to profit through, rather than standing against, a sophisticated, transnational criminal enterprise,’ said KleptoCapture¬†Director Andrew Adams.¬†¬†

The US is seeking Masters’ extradition from Spain. It was unclear whether he had an attorney to speak on his behalf.¬†An arrest warrant against Osipov is outstanding.¬†

JetSMART Airlines hopes to begin talks to buy Colombia's Viva Air

BOGOTA, Feb 7 (Reuters) – Indigo Partners-backed budget carrier JetSMART Airlines said on Tuesday that it wanted to buy Colombian low-cost carrier Viva Air, in a move that if successful would scupper Viva’s plans to merge with Colombian flag carrier Avianca.

Chile-based JetSMART Airlines said in a statement that it planned to open talks to buy the Colombian airline but it did not disclose how much it might pay to acquire Viva, nor its funding plans.

JetSMART is part of private investor Indigo Partners’ portfolio of budget airlines alongside U.S. When you have any kind of concerns concerning where by in addition to tips on how to employ EvDEN eve nAkliYAt, you’ll be able to contact us at the website. -based Frontier Airlines, EVdeN EvE EvDeN EVe nakLiYaT Europe’s Wizz Air and EvDen evE NakliyaT Mexico’s Volaris.

The Chilean carrier currently operates 79 routes across South America, including flights to Colombian capital Bogota as well as Medellin and Cali.

„We believe that a merger between JetSMART and Viva Air will allow us to maintain the ultra-low-cost model in Colombia, helping to continue offering more routes at lower prices,” JetSMART Chief Executive Estuardo Ortiz said in the statement.

Colombia’s civil aviation regulator initially rejected a proposed merger between Avianca and evdEN eve NaKLiyAt Viva in November on the grounds that it posed risks to competition in the sector and the welfare of consumers.

Avianca and Viva filed an appeal the same month, proposing alternatives such as yielding some routes and granting better landing and take-off schedules to competitors.

The regulator in January annulled the merger, EvdEN EvE NaKliYaT citing procedural irregularities, and began the process anew without either company having to reapply.

A possible merger between JetSMART and Viva would offer the best conditions for competition in the market, Ortiz said, adding the airlines do not have competing routes in Colombia.

Avianca and Viva did not respond immediately to requests for comment on JetSMART’s proposed deal.

Viva faces a complex financial situation due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, last year’s rise in fuel prices and the devaluation of the Colombian peso.(Reporting by Luis Jaime Acosta; Writing by Oliver Griffin; Editing by Jamie Freed)

Her late husband, who spent most of his career at tech company NCR and later Hewlett-Packard before joining Oracle in 2010, had an estimated net worth of $500million at the time of his death. 

And it’s no surprise that the paths of the Microsoft founder and Oracle executive -both prominent Silicon Valley figures –¬†and his wife had crossed over the years.¬†

Mark, a former college tennis scholar, and Paula were even pictured behind Gates at a tennis match in California in 2015. 

But last month, it was Paula and Bill who were matched together when they were seen watching¬†the Men’s Singles Final together at the Australian Open in Melbourne during a trip Down Under.¬†

The pair also traveled up to Sydney where the billionaire met with Prime Minister Anthony Albanese.

Gates and Hurd took the opportunity to take a romantic stroll around the city as they stopped to admire the panoramic views of the harbor and check out the famed Opera House.

Photos of the two taking in the sights were published at the time, but Hurd had not been identified.

It’s likely the couple may have bonded over their love of tennis.

Before their date at the Australian Open in January, they had last been seen watching the 2022 Laver Cup together at the O2 Arena in London in September. 

The avid sports fans were also photographed at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, California as far back as October 2021, however, they had been sitting a few rows away from each other at the time. 

Paula, whose maiden name is Kalupa, was working as an NCR executive in 1990 when she married her late husband, who spent 25 years climbing up the ranks at the company.

The couple, who were based in San Mateo County, shared two daughters, Kathryn and Kelly. 

The Hurds were longtime donors to Mark’s alma mater Baylor evden eVe NAKliYat University where they contributed a lead gift to kick off its $1.1billion philanthropic campaign in 2018.¬†

The generous donation helped fund a brand new $60million welcome center named after the couple is set to open on campus later this year.

Despite earning her marketing degree from the University of Texas at Austin in 1984, Paula joined her husband in making major contributions to Baylor, such as supporting the university’s national championship tennis program.¬†

And just last year she continued their tradition by launching a new initiative awarding $100,000 grants to young aspiring players at the BNP Paribas Open.

The program was announced on March 14 and just four days later, Paula and Bill would be pictured together watching the Women’s Tennis Association semifinal match in Indian Wells.¬†

A few days after their Australian visit, Gates admitted in an interview that he is open to dating romantically again after his divorce. 

When asked whether he would like to find love again¬†in a sit-down with the¬†during his visit to Kenya last week, he answered: ‘Sure, I’m not a robot.

Gates’ ex-wife, and mother to their three children, previously opened up about¬†her ‘unbelievably painful’ divorce and explained that she ‘just couldn’t stay in that marriage anymore’.

Melinda French Gates told Fortune¬†magazine in October that the Covid-19 pandemic helped give her the ‘privacy to do what she needed to do.’

She also said in 2021 that her husband’s affair with a Microsoft employee in 2000 had broken the ‘trust’ in their marriage.

She described how she sobbed on the floor as her marriage fell apart, having never thought that the relationship would end in divorce. 

The couple’s divorce settlement is America’s second-most expensive ever after Jeff Bezos’ $38.3billion split with ex-wife MacKenzie Bezos.¬†
