April 26, 2019

(Reuters) – Americans Scott Stallings and Trey Mullinax birdied seven of their final nine holes to take a one-stroke lead at the rain-shortened opening round of fourball matches at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans on Thursday.

Stallings and Mullinax combined for an 11-under-par 61 at the team event at TPC Louisiana, on a day blighted by a seven-hour, 33-minute stoppage due to heavy rain and lightning.

Briton Martin Laird and Canadian Nick Taylor mixed 11 birdies with three bogies for a 10-under round of 62 and a share of second place with American Brian Gay and Slovak Rory Sabbatini.

Gay and Sabbatini’s round was suspended for darkness after the 14th hole, where they had just made a ninth straight birdie.

They were far from alone in finishing early, with only eight teams able to complete their rounds at the course on the Mississippi River, which shares space with resident alligators.

The shot of the day belonged to Kevin Kisner, who had his first hole-in-one at a PGA Tour event on the 201-yard, par-three third as he and fellow American Scott Brown moved into a tie for sixth.

The weather is forecast to improve on Friday and through the weekend at the event, which features 80 two-player teams playing fourball in the first and third rounds and foursomes in the second and a final rounds.

TOKYO (Reuters) – The dollar held steady close to a two-year high against its peers on Friday, supported by data showing strong U.S. capital goods orders, while a first-quarter GDP report to be released later in the global day could further reinforce bullishness.

The dollar index versus a basket of six major currencies stood at 98.123 after advancing to 98.322 on Thursday, its highest since May 2017.

Data on Thursday showed new orders for U.S.-made capital goods increased by the most in eight months in March. That follows other recent U.S. data that show strength in retail sales and exports which have eased fears of a sharp slowdown in the world’s biggest economy.

According to a Reuters survey of economists, data to be released at 1230 GMT on Friday will probably show GDP increased 2.0 percent year-on-year in the first quarter, slightly slower that the 2.2 percent posted in the previous quarter.

“We expect the GDP data to underline steady economic recovery,” said Shin Kadota, senior strategist at Barclays in Tokyo.

“Differences in economic fundamentals is a key driver for currencies now that the Fed – and more recently the Swedish and Japanese central banks – have adopted a dovish stance,” Kadota added.

Sweden’s central bank said on Thursday that recent weak inflationary pressures meant an interest rate hike would come slightly later than it had planned, sending the Swedish crown to a 17-year low.

In a move to dispel any doubt over its commitment to ultra-loose policies, the Bank of Japan on Thursday put a time frame on its forward guidance for the first time by telling investors that it would keep interest rates at super-low levels for at least one more year.

The dollar was nearly flat at 111.64 yen after shedding 0.5 percent overnight.

The greenback has poked above 112.00 yen several times this month without building a strong enough foothold above the threshold, which has become a key technical resistance level.

While the dollar has been caught in narrow range against the yen through most of April, Mitsuo Imaizumi, chief FX strategist at Daiwa Securities, sees the next significant move would see the dollar strengthen.

“The Chinese PMI and the U.S. non-farm jobs report are due over the next week and both are expected to be quite good. There is also the next round of U.S.-China trade talks, which could further lift risk sentiment,” Imaizumi said.

“The market could thus see a significant increase in ‘risk on’ during the Japanese holidays, pushing dollar/yen towards 113.00 yen.”

U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin will travel to Beijing for trade talks beginning on April 30.

Larry Kudlow, director of the White House National Economic Council, said this week that the talks were making progress and that he was “cautiously optimistic” about the prospects for striking a deal.

Starting on Saturday, Japan embarks on a 10-day public holiday to mark the abdication of the emperor, who will be replaced by his son.

The euro was a touch higher at $1.1138 but within reach of $1.1117, its lowest level since June 2017 plumbed on Thursday.

The single currency has shed nearly 1 percent against the dollar this week, weighed by worries about the health of the euro zone economy.

The Australian dollar nudged up 0.15 percent to $0.7027 after ending Thursday little changed.

The Aussie has lost nearly 2 percent this week, during which it sank to a near four-month trough as soft domestic inflation data boosted the prospect of a rate cut by the Reserve Bank of Australia.

Contrary to some public statements, President Trump and his campaign staff are likely “pretty concerned” about having former Vice President Joe Biden as a potential opponent in 2020, the Federalist publisher Ben Domenech said Thursday.

“I actually think they are pretty concerned about him,” Domenech said during an appearance on Fox News’ “Special Report with Bret Baier.”

Domenech noted that part of the concern may stem from the fact that Trump and Biden — a Democrat who made his White House bid official Thursday morning — appeal to some of the same types of voters.

STEVE FORBES: BIDEN’S RUN ‘FOUR YEARS TOO LATE’

“I think part of that has to do with the fact that Joe Biden has clearly proven in the past to appeal to the same states that were key to President Trump in deciding the 2016 election,” Domenech said. For example, Biden — a longtime U.S. senator from Delaware, often speaks of his childhood in Pennsylvania, a state that Trump won over Hillary Clinton in 2016.

In his campaign kickoff video Thursday, Biden argued that “if we give Donald Trump eight years in the White House, he will forever and fundamentally alter the character of this nation, who we are, and I cannot stand by and watch that happen.”

Nevertheless, Trump welcomed Biden to the race, calling him “Sleepy Joe” in a tweet and warning Biden to prepare for a “nasty” primary fight against a large field of other Democrats seeking the party’s presidential nomination.

Domenech said Biden is a much stronger candidate than others believe he is, in particular with African-Americans.

“Personally I think the elite opinion is wrong about Joe Biden, that he actually is a much stronger candidate that they are giving credit for,” Domenech said. “I think a large part of that is that he has an enormous wellspring of support among African-American voters that you do not see for a lot of the other candidates in this race. Where they might be appealing to the more ‘woke’ white progressive vote that I think is the loudest and shouting about a lot of different issues right now.”

The Federalist publisher also said Biden will need to deal with issues from earlier in his career that his Democratic rivals will almost certainly raise.

“The problem here for him is how does he deal with all the hits that are going to come against him from his past?” Domenech said.

“We’ve seen them used in lot of different ways and I think they will be deployed against him. He will have to come up with different ways to respond to the different aspects of that.”

The Latest on the Easter attacks in Sri Lanka (all times local):

7:10 a.m.

Australia’s prime minister says the Sri Lankan militants blamed for the Easter attacks in that country had support from the Islamic State group.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison told reporters Friday that ties between the local group and Islamic State included identifying the targets of the attacks. Sunday’s attacks killing at least 253 people primarily struck three churches that were packed with Easter worshippers and three luxury hotels popular with foreigners.

Morrison said the attacks demonstrated a new front in fighting terrorism, that militants who fought in Syria and Iraq had returned home with skills to carry out attacks while being part of a broader network that could provide money, training and target identification.

7 a.m.

Heavy security is out on the streets of Sri Lanka’s capital after warnings of further attacks by the militant group blamed for the Easter bombing that killed at least 250 people.

At St. Anthony’s Church, one of those struck in the attacks Sunday, there were more soldiers than normal Friday. Shops nearby remained closed.

Gration Fernando crossed himself when he looked at the church after walking out of his shop there. Fernando says he, like other Sri Lankans, was worried about further attacks.

He says there’s “no security, no safety to go to church.” He also says “now children are scared to go to church” as well.

Authorities told Muslims to pray at home rather than attend communal Friday prayers that’s the most important of the week.

Former Democratic National Committee (DNC) chair Howard Dean warned the party’s latest official candidate, former Vice President Joe Biden, about the troubles he may face ahead, including the “35-year-olds” who Dean says have been running the party — a clear nod to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and fellow freshman Democrats.

Dean, whose 2004 primary campaign fizzled after early signs of promise, gave his take on the Democrats of 2019.

“This party is being taken over by 35-year-olds. The people who won the races are 35 years old,” Dean told CNN’s Anderson Cooper.

“And, they’re mostly centrists, they’re not particularly liberals. AOC gets all the press, who I am a big fan of, Rashida Tlaib, [Ilhan] Omar, they get all the press. There’s 37 people who come from Orange County, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas- that’s where we picked up the seats.”

“This is a very different party than even the party Joe Biden ran in in 2012. Very different,” Dean continued. “A lot of people could win this race. There’s 20 people in there. I think it’s going to take $20 million to get to the starting line. If you can’t raise $20 million, you’re gone, and I think that’s going to take care of about six or eight of these folks… but it is not the same party that it was five years ago.”

Dean, 70, later added that he himself would never run for president at his age, saying the 35-year-olds taking over represented the “best thing” that could happen to the party.

Trump: 2017 Spying Claim Based on ‘Little Bit of a Hunch’

President Donald Trump said Thursday he based his controversial claim President Barack Obama had his "wires tapped" in Trump Tower on "a little bit of a hunch."

In a phone interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, the pair lamented alleged improper behavior from federal law enforcement, which Trump says continued after he won the election in 2016.

"I don't know if you remember, a long time ago, very early on I used the word 'wiretap,' and I put in quotes, meaning surveillance, spying you can sort of say whatever you want," Trump said, saying it attracted attention "like you've never seen."

"Now I understand why, because they thought two years ago when I said that just on a little bit of a hunch and a little bit of wisdom maybe, it blew up because they thought maybe I was wise to them," Trump continued. 

"Or they were caught. And that's why. If they weren't doing anything wrong it would've just gotten by, nobody would've cared about it."

"It was pretty insignificant I thought when I said it, and it's pretty amazing," he added.

The president made the claim about his predecessor in March 2017, alleging "President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!"

The Justice Department in a court filing the following September said neither it nor the FBI had evidence Trump Tower was the target of surveillance efforts by the Obama administration during the presidential election.

But Trump reasserted his allegations following the release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the election, when Attorney General William Barr's contention that "I think spying did occur."

Family of slain motorist celebrates after officer sentenced

Corey Jones's family sang the gospel song "Victory is Mine" as they walked out of a Florida courthouse, celebrating after a judge handed a 25-year sentence to a former police officer for killing the stranded black motorist in 2015.

Fired Palm Beach Gardens officer Nouman Raja on Thursday became the first Florida law enforcement agent in nearly 30 years to be convicted and sentenced for an on-duty killing — and one of only a few officers nationwide.

Raja, 41, had told investigators he fired after Jones pulled a gun on him, but an audiotape of their encounter led prosecutors and jurors to believe Raja instigated their altercation. And last month a jury convicted Raja of manslaughter and attempted murder in the death of the 31-year-old musician who was gunned down after his SUV stalled on the road home from a nightclub performance.

"We knew what the truth was and we stood by that," his father, Clinton Jones Sr., told reporters after Thursday's sentencing. He said he never doubted Raja was the aggressor. "Because of the son we had raised and the type of character he had, we knew ... it wasn't our Corey."

The families of both Raja and Jones had packed Circuit Judge Joseph Marx's courtroom, but there was hushed silence as Marx pronounced sentence. He could have given Raja a life term, a sentence prosecutors sought.

"This has been a heartbreaking case," Marx said. "I think it has had a profound effect on every single person who sat through this trial."

Raja's wife, Karine, had sought leniency so her husband could be a father to their two young children. She said the media and others had unfairly portrayed him as "a monster, the angel of death." Raja, in blue jail jumpsuit, looked down often as she spoke.

"The wrong person was chosen to be a sacrificial lamb," she said. "Raja is the man you wanted serving and protecting you." His attorneys vow to appeal.

Prosecutors contended Raja escalated a seemingly routine interaction into a deadly confrontation with Jones, a housing inspector and part-time drummer. Raja's attorneys argued his actions were in self-defense both for a police officer and under Florida's controversial "stand your ground" law.

Raja, of Asian descent, was in plain clothes for an auto burglary investigation team when he spotted Jones' SUV at 3:15 a.m. on Oct. 18, 2015. Jones was headed home from a nightclub performance by his reggae band when his vehicle stalled on a dark highway off-ramp. He had a concealed-weapons permit and carried a handgun, purchased days earlier to protect his $10,000 drum set, which was in the SUV.

Raja, wearing jeans, a T-shirt and a baseball cap, drove an unmarked van the wrong way up an off ramp within feet of the SUV.

Prosecutors said Raja never identified himself as an officer and acted so aggressively Jones must have thought he was about to be carjacked or killed. Raja's supervisor testified the officer had been told to don a police vest if he approached a civilian. He didn't, nor did he pull his badge.

What police didn't know at first was that Jones had been talking to a tow-truck dispatcher on a recorded line. That recording shows Jones saying "Huh?" as his door opens. Raja yells, "You good?" Jones says he is. Raja replies twice, "Really?" with Jones replying "Yeah."

Suddenly, Raja shouts at Jones to raise his hands, using an expletive. Jones replies, "Hold on!" and Raja repeats his demand.

Prosecutors believe Jones pulled his gun and tried to run. Raja fired three shots; Jones ran down an embankment. Prosecutors said he threw his gun, but Raja fired three more times, 10 seconds after the first volley. One of the bullets pierced the man's heart. Jones was also hit in both arms.

Prosecutors said Raja, not knowing of the audio recording, sought to deceive investigators. He claimed he said "Police, can I help you?" as Jones jumped from the SUV. He also told them Jones leapt backward and pointed his gun, forcing him to fire. Raja said Jones ran but turned and again pointed his gun, forcing him to fire the second volley.

Prosecutors charged Raja with manslaughter, saying his actions created the confrontation and showed "culpable negligence." They also charged him with attempted murder, saying no matter which of Raja's six shots killed Jones, the second volley was a conscious effort to kill the fleeing man.

The last Florida officer sentenced for an on-duty killing was Miami's William Lozano in 1989. The Hispanic officer fatally shot a black motorcyclist who he said tried to hit him. A passenger died when the motorcycle crashed. Three days of rioting followed.

Convicted of two manslaughter counts in a Miami trial and sentenced to seven years, Lozano never served time. State appellate court justices dismissed the verdict, saying the case should have been moved from Miami because of racial tensions. Lozano was acquitted at a 1993 retrial in Orlando.
