u.s. world cup bid moves forward — but did fifa reforms take a step back?


the u.s. moved a big step closer to landing the 2026 world cup during last week’s fifa congress in bahrain. but at the same time, the organization that governs world soccer may have taken a step back from its pledge of transparency and reform. — although the ruling council voted to extend the bidding process for the 2026 tournament for three months to allow rival nations to contest the u.s.-led offer, fifa’s full membership voted overwhelmingly to fast-track the north american proposal. that means the bid for the u.s., mexico and canada to share the 2026 world cup could officially be approved in june 2018, two years ahead of schedule."the most important thing was having an expedited process rather than a two- or three-year process and the council agreed with that," sunil gulati, president

uber has launched a new patent purchase program, called up3, which will seek to expedite the process of purchasing patents with an open application windows opening april 24, 2017 and closing may 23, 2017. the idea is to get patent holders to propose a simple price they’re willing to take for their patents, which uber can then take or leave, as a means to sidestep the often long and complicated process of buying and selling intellectual property.“it is a buying program intended to really eliminate the friction of the secondary patent market,” explained uber’s patent transactions lead kurt brasch in an interview. “so the typical secondary patent market is challenging, valuations are difficult to identify for both buyers and sellers. sellers tend to start out really high and buyers tend to st






us top court leaves intact ruling against central america asylum seekers


the u.s. supreme court sidestepped a turbulent debate over illegal immigration on monday, turning away an appeal by a group of asylum-seeking central american women and their children who aimed to clarify the constitutional rights of people who the government has prioritized for deportation.the families, 28 women and 33 children ages 2 to 17 from el salvador, honduras and guatemala, had hoped the justices would overturn a lower court’s ruling preventing them from having their expedited removal orders reviewed by a federal judge.that philadelphia-based court said the status of the families, all apprehended in texas and later held in pennsylvania, was akin to non-citizens who are denied entry at the border and they were not entitled to a court hearing to challenge that decision.immigration h

trump's new deportation rules allow more expulsions


the department of homeland security on tuesday released a set of documents translating president donald trump’s executive orders on immigration and border security into policy, bringing a major shift in the way the agency enforces the nation’s immigration laws.under the obama administration, undocumented immigrants convicted of serious crimes were the priority for removal. now, immigration agents, customs officers and border patrol agents have been directed to remove anyone convicted of any criminal offense.that includes people convicted of fraud in any official matter before a governmental agency and people who “have abused any program related to receipt of public benefits.”the policy also calls for an expansion of expedited removals, allowing border patrol and immigration and customs enf






ap explains: how immigrants are detained, deported


houston (ap) — president donald trump has made headlines with his swift action on immigration and vows to deport those living in the u.s. illegally who have a criminal past. now any immigrant charged or convicted of any offense, or even suspected of a crime, has become an enforcement priority for federal authorities.the stricter policy has brought new attention to a labyrinth of an immigration system where simply deporting someone is never a simple or time-efficient task. months, if not years, can pass. in the end, if the case is lost, the immigrant may find him or herself on a bus or plane heading back to his or her home country.but what exactly happens between the time someone is taken into custody and when they leave the u.s.? some basics on the court and deportation process:___most rea

2026 world cup in north america? seems certain, but of course, fifa has final sa


by steven goff, the washington postfifa isn’t quite ready to award the 2026 world cup to north america, but that outcome seems inevitable. at meetings in bahrain, fifa’s ruling council recommended allowing three more months for rival bids to come forward. the u.s.-mexico-canada effort had pushed for a fast-track decision this week.realistically, however, no other substantial bids are likely to enter the race. europe and asia are ineligible because russia and qatar will host the next two world cups. oceania (namely, new zealand) isn’t in position for the expanded, 48-team competition. south america is focused on the 2030 tournament, which falls on the 100th anniversary of uruguay hosting the first world cup. and africa’s only hope, it appears, is morocco, which would be hard-pressed to hand
