Trump Distances Himself From Cryptocurrency

[Washington]Trump Distances Himself From Cryptocurrency Saying Cryptocurrency is ‘Not Money’
Donald J Trump expressed his mistrust of cryptocurrency Thursday, Tweeting
“I am not a fan of Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies, which are not money, and whose value is highly volatile and based on thin air,”
He added that cryptocurrency, whose electronic nature makes it nearly untraceable, could facilitate illegal activity.
Cryptocurrency has flourished since Bitcoin launched in 2009. But when Facebook unveiled plans last month for its own virtual currency, Libra, the announcement rattled financial regulators the world over.
With more than two billion Facebook users, the social media giant’s cryptocurrency — which is slated for a 2020 launch and already has multiple partners — could completely disrupt the financial world.
But Trump said that Libra has “little standing or dependability.” He also warned Facebook and other companies that, should they launch their own cryptocurrency, they would have to abide by both American and international banking regulations.
“We only have one real currency in the USA, and it is stronger than ever,” he tweeted.
“It is called the United States Dollar!”

अमेरिका ने ग्रीन कार्ड पर लगी सीमा हटायी:भारतीय पेशेवरों को राहत

[वाशिंगटन]अमेरिका ने ग्रीन कार्ड पर लगी सीमा हटायी:भारतीय पेशेवरों को राहत
अमेरिकी सांसदों ने ग्रीन कार्ड जारी करने पर मौजूदा सात प्रतिशत की सीमा को हटाने के उद्देश्य से बुधवार को एक विधेयक पारित किया। इस विधेयक से भारत के हजारों उच्च कुशल आईटी पेशेवरों को लाभ मिलेगा।
ग्रीन कार्ड किसी व्यक्ति को अमेरिका में स्थायी रूप से रहने और काम करने की अनुमति देता है।
फेयरनेस ऑफ हाई स्किल्ड इमिग्रेंट्स एक्ट, 2019 या एचआर 1044 नाम का यह विधेयक 435 सदस्यीय सदन में 65 के मुकाबले 365 मतों से पारित हो गया।
नए विधेयक में इस सीमा को सात प्रतिशत से बढ़ाकर 15 प्रतिशत कर दिया गया है।
इसी तरह इसमें हर देश को रोजगार आधारित प्रवासी वीजा केवल सात प्रतिशत दिए जाने की सीमा को भी खत्म कर दिया गया है।
इस विधेयक को कानून की शक्ल लेने के लिए अमेरिका के राष्ट्रपति के हस्ताक्षर की जरुरत है लेकिन इससे पहले इसे सीनेट की मंजूरी की आवश्यकता होगी जहां रिपब्लिकन सांसदों की अच्छी-खासी संख्या है।
