Australia will make permanent rules introduced during the COVID-19 pandemic that allow companies to hold virtual shareholder meetings and electronically distribute documents, the Australian Financial Review (AFR) reported on Wednesday. Under the new rules, companies will be able to hold a mix of in-person and online meetings if the company's shareholders are given "reasonable opportunity to participate", the newspaper said, citing Federal Treasurer Josh Frydenberg. "With so much of corporate Australia having shifted online throughout the pandemic, these reforms reflect the fact that the way we do business is changing," Frydenberg was quoted as saying.
NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman let out a faint cough and assured those seated at least 6 feet away that it was allergies, not COVID-19. It allowed the fully vaccinated 69-year-old the opportunity to underscore the message that the virus is still part of the NHL and other professional sports leagues 19 months into the pandemic. Basketball's Kyrie Irving and Bradley Beal, football's Kirk Cousins, Cole Beasley and Chase Young, baseball's Chris Sale and hockey's Tyler Bertuzzi have all held out, with varying degrees of outspoken skepticism.

The first Black chair of Iowa’s Democratic Party says he received a series of racist messages, including a lynching threat, after writing an opinion piece in a local newspaper criticizing former President Donald Trump and the state Republican officials who stood with him at a recent rally in Des Moines. Ross Wilburn, who is also a state representative from Ames, reported the threatening phone and email messages to local police and state investigators. The messages came after The Des Moines Register's online publication of Wilburn's op-ed on Oct. 8, the day before thousands of Trump supporters gathered at the Iowa State Fairgrounds for the rally.

FBI agents on Tuesday raided homes in Washington D.C. and New York City linked to Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska, a metals tycoon with ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin... and to Paul Manafort, the one-time campaign manager for former U.S. President Donald Trump.Members of the FBI's Evidence Response Team carried boxes out of the D.C. mansion in one of Washington's wealthiest neighborhoods and towed away a vehicle.The FBI also confirmed "law enforcement activity" at the home in New York City's Greenwich Village neighborhood but declined further comment. The specific reason for sealing off and searching the homes was not immediately clear, and an FBI spokesperson did not provide details. A representative for Deripaska said the two homes belonged to relatives.The 53-year-old Russian billionaire has been under U.S. sanctions since 2018 along with several other influential Russians because of their ties to the Kremlin after alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Deripaska - who owns part of Rusal, one of the world’s largest aluminum conglomerates - sued to have the U.S. sanctions lifted but his case was dismissed in June.The U.S. Treasury Department also targeted several of his companies, including Rusal. Washington later dropped those sanctions but kept them on Deripaska.Deripaska once employed Paul Manafort, who was convicted in 2018 on tax evasion and bank fraud charges and was among the central figures scrutinized under investigations of alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.In December of 2020 - his last full month as president - Trump pardoned Manafort.
A Haitian gang that kidnapped a group of missionaries including 16 American and 1 Canadian is asking for $17 million to release them, the Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday, citing a Haitian official. The official said the FBI and Haitian police are in contact with the kidnappers and seeking the release of the missionaries from Christian Aid Ministries, abducted over the weekend outside the capital Port-au-Prince by a gang. Negotiations could take weeks, the official told the Journal. At the White House, Tuesday, Press Secretary Jen Psaki would share few specifics - “And I can't get into too many details operationally here because that's never - has never been - in the interests of bringing people home who are being held for ransom. What I can reiterate, Kristen, is that the FBI is a part of a coordinated U.S. government effort to get the U.S. citizens involved to safety. Also that the U.S. embassy in Port au Prince is coordinating with local authorities and providing assistance to the families to resolve the situation.” Kidnappings have become more brazen and commonplace in Haiti amid a growing political and economic crisis, with more than 600 incidents in the first nine months of 2021 alone, according to a report by a Haitian nonprofit. Haitians on Monday mounted a nationwide strike to protest gang crime and kidnappings, which have been on the rise for years and have worsened since the July assassination of President Jovenel Moise.
Upbeat earnings results from a pair of Dow components helped drive stocks on Wall Street higher Tuesday, nudging the S&P 500 very close to its all-time high. Johnson & Johnson and Travelers helped push the blue-chip index up nearly 200 points. The S&P rose for the fifth straight session. It and the Nasdaq gained more than seven-tenth percent. But Procter & Gamble warned that higher commodity and freight costs would take a bigger bite out of earnings… a good example of why investors should pepper their optimism with caution – says Vespula Capital CEO Jeff Tomasulo. “I need more data, and I think that's the key, especially coming out of like what we saw come out of Procter and Gamble today we saw some different results come out of J&J. We have Netflix reporting. I want to be again cautious with how some of these companies are reporting the numbers coming out." J&J’s shares rose more than 2% after the drug maker raised its adjusted profit forecast for 2021. Higher returns on its investments helped Travelers top analysts’ targets, lifting the insurer’s shares 1.7%. And shares of digital currency exchange Coinbase Global got a lift from the successful debut by the first ever bitcoin ETF. ProShares Bitcoin Strategy ETF jumped nearly 5%. After the bell, shares of Netflix rose. The video streaming giant said it expects to add 8.5 million paid subscribers in the fourth quarter, topping estimates. It’s banking on the success of the hit series “Squid Game” and content investments to fend off competition.

A coalition of investors with more than $60 trillion in assets under management is preparing to call on electric utility companies globally to move up their timeline by as much as 15 years to bring their net greenhouse gas emissions to zero. Net zero refers to reaching a balance between the greenhouse gases put in to the atmosphere and those taken out. The Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC) in London, part of the Climate Action 100+ initiative, told Reuters on Tuesday that emissions from electricity generation need to reach net zero well before 2050, so that other industries that rely on power can follow suit.
