Lynch inherits civil rights probes from Holder as U.S. attorney general

Lynch testifies during her Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing to become U.S. attorney general on Capitol Hill in WashingtonBy Richard Cowan WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A string of deadly confrontations between mostly white police and black men will be among challenges immediately facing Loretta Lynch when she is sworn in on Monday as U.S. attorney general. Lynch, 55, takes over as the country's top law enforcement official after a weekend that saw thousands of people in Baltimore, Maryland, take to the streets in mostly peaceful protests over the latest such case. Building on her career as an accomplished federal prosecutor, Lynch takes over from retiring Attorney General Eric Holder, who served more than six turbulent years at the head of the Justice Department. Besides the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore, other questionable encounters between police and black males in recent months have led to unrest in South Carolina, Missouri, Ohio and New York.

Increased human protections offered as H5N2 outbreak spreads

An egg-producing chicken farm run by Sunrise Farm is seen in HarrisBy P.J. Huffstutter and Julie Steenhuysen CHICAGO (Reuters) - Hundreds of farm workers exposed to a highly pathogenic strain of bird flu have been offered antiviral medication as a preventative measure in recent days, U.S. public health officials said. To date, the virulent H5N2 influenza, which has infected turkeys and chickens on Midwestern poultry farms, has not affected humans. Dr. Alicia Fry, a medical officer in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s influenza division, said that while health officials are cautiously optimistic that humans will not be affected, her agency has isolated a pure strain of the H5N2 virus for potential use in a human vaccine, should one be needed. Concerns about human health risk have prompted investigators to ramp up biosecurity measures on infected farms, with some government staff overseeing the culling of birds wearing full protective body suits and ventilators.

Charlie Villanueva (R) of the Dallas Mavericks reacts after making a 3-pointer against the Houston Rockets, during Game 4 of the Western Conference quarter-finals of the NBA playoffs, at American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, on April 26, 2015The Dallas Mavericks stayed alive in the NBA playoffs with a 121-109 victory over the Houston Rockets. Down 3-0 in their best-of-seven Western Conference first-round series, the Mavs on Sunday opted to give J.J. Barea and Al-Farouq Aminu their first starts of the post-season and both produced double-doubles. Barea scored 17 points and handed out 13 assists, enlivening a starting lineup that has been without injured Chandler Parsons and Rajon Rondo. Aminu added 16 points -- including five straight in the fourth quarter that helped thwart a Houston rally -- and pulled down 12 rebounds.

Deutsche Bank first-quarter profit falls by half as legal charges bite

The logo of Germany's largest business bank, Deutsche Bank, is seen at the bank's headquarters behind twigs in FrankfurtBy Thomas Atkins FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Deutsche Bank's earnings fell by half in the first quarter, a greater-than-expected drop as hefty legal charges eroded gains in investment banking revenue, while it prepares to unveil details of a strategic overhaul. Almost half came from the investment bank, but its pre-tax contribution fell by more than half due to litigation and regulatory expenses and currency swings, the bank said on Sunday. Deutsche has so far positioned itself as Europe’s “last man standing” in investment banking, even though it has made cuts in certain business lines. Deutsche on Friday announced a new strategic plan including the sale of its Postbank retail chain and additional paring back in investment banking.

More central banks meet, but ability to pilot economies in doubt

A man walks past the Bank of Japan building on a rainy day in TokyoMost central banks have been easing policy since the start of the year and are set to do more, but it still isn't clear whether that new activism, which has pushed stock markets to record highs, will help the global economy much. Several meet this week to set policy, including the U.S. Federal Reserve, the Bank of Japan and Sweden's Riksbank, which all have turned to government bond purchases as stimulus after running out of interest rates to cut. The Fed shut its quantitative easing (QE) program just over six months ago. Few expect the Fed to use its two-day meeting as a launching pad for what will eventually be the first interest rate hike in nearly a decade.

SEC's stock market reform club locks out retail brokers

To match Special Report SEC/INVESTIGATIONSBy John McCrank NEW YORK (Reuters) - The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is convening a group of financial industry veterans for the first time next month to consider stock market reforms, but one group will be conspicuously absent: retail brokerages. The SEC's 17-member Market Structure Advisory Committee includes representatives of fund companies, an exchange, off-exchange trading venues, dealers, and academia, among others. The group, which meets four times a year, will review old rules, and advise the SEC on a range of new regulations designed to make sure the market is as stable and fair as possible. Still, given that the SEC has said its main priority is to protect retail investors, the omission of retail brokers raises questions, because without their point of view the panel may recommend changes that favor institutional investors, analysts said.
