Blinken downplays reports of Saudi, UAE distrust of Biden admin – Fox News

Fox News White House correspondent Jacqui Heinrich reports on Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates declining calls from President Biden.
Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Wednesday downplayed the suggestion that the Biden administration was snubbed by oil-leading nations in the Middle East as the U.S. looks to counter surging oil prices amid Russia’s war in Ukraine.
“We’re all talking regularly,” the secretary said. “I spent a fair bit of time on the phone with my Emirati counterpart,” he continued. “I regularly met with my Saudi counterpart, including in Munich, just a few weeks ago. President Biden spoke with King Salman of Saudi Arabia last month in a discussion that set out a very expansive agenda.”

The question was posed following a report Wednesday morning by The Wall Street Journal that claimed leaders in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) declined calls with Biden in recent weeks. The report also said Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and the UAE’s Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al Nahyanspoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin, despite declining to talk with Biden.
“There was some expectation of a phone call, but it didn’t happen,” a U.S. official reportedly said of the planned discussion between the Saudi Prince Mohammed and Biden. “It was part of turning on the spigot [of Saudi oil].”
The U.S. and its NATO allies have been looking to garner support for Ukraine as Russia carries on with its deadly invasion for a second week. 
Biden announced ban imports Tuesday on Russian oil, gas and coal in another attempt to counter Russian President Vladimir Putin’s “vicious war of choice.”
The U.K. said it would phase out its reliance on Russian oil by the end of 2022 and the European Union said it would also be making cuts to its Russian oil imports – a move made more difficult by the fact that Europe receives a whopping 40% of its oil needs from Moscow while the U.S. receives roughly 3%.
In a joint press conference Wednesday with Blinken, U.K. Foreign Secretary Elizabeth Truss urged other countries to “get on board with our sanction effort.”

“One hundred and forty-one countries voted against Russia aggression,” she said. “We will end strategic dependence on authoritarian regimes for our energy and for other vital resources. And we will step up our work to build economic and security alliances around the world, including with India and the Gulf nations to further isolate Russia.”
Gas prices hit a record high this week and are expected to continue to surge globally with the renewed efforts to target Russia’s economy through its top moneymaker – oil production. 
But Blinken suggested Wednesday that despite reluctance by the Saudi-led Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries Plus (OPEC+) to increase oil production last year amid a seven-year high, OPEC-member nation UAE may be reconsidering. 
“I think that there was just an announcement a short while ago – I’m not sure if it’s been made publicly yet – about Emirati support for increased production when it comes to OPEC +,” Blinken said. “Which I think is an important thing to stabilize global energy markets to make sure that there remains an abundant supply of energy around the world.”

Today's Mortgage Rates & Trends – March 14, 2022: Rates flat – Investopedia

Friday saw the 30-year mortgage average hold steady, at its highest level in almost three years, while the 15-year and Jumbo 30-year averages rose into higher territory.
After ascending four consecutive days, 30-year mortgage rates remained flat Friday. At 4.35%, the average is sitting at its recent peak, which is its most expensive since May 2019.
Meanwhile, the 15-year average rose eight points Friday to 3.59%, setting a new recent high. The current average is in a range not seen since March 2020, when rates spiked at the outset of the pandemic.

Jumbo 30-year rates moved a more modest three points up Friday, to 4.05%, and likewise established a new 2022 peak. The last time Jumbo 30-year rates were this pricey was in July 2020.
All three mortgage averages have climbed a point or more since a major August dip sank rates to five-month lows. The 30-year average is currently 1.46 percentage points more expensive than the August valley, while the 15-year and Jumbo 30-year averages are up 1.38 and 0.99, respectively.
Refinance rates were decidedly mixed Friday, with the 30-year refi average holding still, the 15-year average rising six points, and Jumbo 30-year refi rates dropping a tenth of a point. The cost to refinance with a fixed-rate loan is currently up to 14 points higher than new purchase loans.
The rates you see here generally won’t compare directly with teaser rates you see advertised online, since those rates are cherry-picked as the most attractive. They may involve paying points in advance, or may be selected based on a hypothetical borrower with an ultra-high credit score or taking a smaller-than-typical loan given the value of the home.
Calculate monthly payments for different loan scenarios with our Mortgage Calculator.
The lowest mortgage rates available vary depending on the state where originations occur. Mortgage rates can be influenced by state-level variations in credit score, average mortgage loan term, and size, as well as individual lenders' varying risk management strategies.
Mortgage rates are determined by a complex interaction of macroeconomic and industry factors, such as the level and direction of the bond market, including 10-year Treasury yields; the Federal Reserve's current monetary policy, especially as it relates to funding government-backed mortgages; and competition between lenders and across loan types. Because fluctuations can be caused by any number of these at once, it's generally difficult to attribute the change to any one factor.
Macroeconomic factors have kept the mortgage market relatively low for much of this year. In particular, the Federal Reserve has been buying billions of dollars of bonds in response to the pandemic's economic pressures, and continues to do so. This bond-buying policy (and not the more publicized federal funds rate) is a major influencer on mortgage rates.
On Jan. 26, the Fed announced that, in light of stronger and more persistent inflation pressure than originally expected, it is sticking to its plan to speed up the timeline for throttling Fed bond buying, reducing the amount they purchase by a large increment each month. This so-called taper began in late November.
The Fed's rate and policy committee, called the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), meets every 6-8 weeks. Their next scheduled meeting will be held March 15-16.
The national averages cited above were calculated based on the lowest rate offered by more than 200 of the country’s top lenders, assuming a loan-to-value ratio (LTV) of 80% and an applicant with a FICO credit score in the 700-760 range. The resulting rates are representative of what customers should expect to see when receiving actual quotes from lenders based on their qualifications, which may vary from advertised teaser rates.
For our map of the best state rates, the lowest rate currently offered by a surveyed lender in that state is listed, assuming the same parameters of an 80% LTV and a credit score between 700-760.


West Virginia bill against schools 'brainwashing' students on race advances – Fox News

Fox News contributor Joe Concha joined ‘Fox & Friends First’ to discuss rising gas prices and MSNBC host Joy Reid suggesting Ukraine is getting media attention because of race.
West Virginia lawmakers advanced legislation Friday that would restrict the way public school teachers can talk about race, a bill one Republican delegate said is meant to protect kids from “brainwashing.”
During more than two hours of tense, back-and-forth debate, Del. Todd Longanacre said he doesn’t want to hear that students are being taught about “white privilege” in the classroom.
“Do we really want to teach them how to handle their guilt if they’re White, or how to handle their sense of victimhood if they’re Black?” he said.
Del. Sean Hornbuckle, one of the only Black lawmakers in the House of Delegates, held up multiple poster boards depicting incidents of historical racial violence. One depicted a portrait of 14-year-old Emmett Till side-by-side with a photo of his mutilated body in a casket. Till was lynched in 1955 in Mississippi.
“Does this make you uncomfortable?” he asked. “I’m wondering, are we permitted to still teach about this?’

The “Anti-Racism Act of 2022” prevents discrimination based on race and the teaching in both public K-12 schools that one race is “inherently, morally or intellectually superior to another.” Teachers would be barred from telling students that one race “is inherently racist or oppressive, whether consciously or unconsciously.”
The bill states that students can’t be taught that a person’s moral character is determined by his or her race or that a person, by virtue of his or her race, “bears responsibility for actions committed by other members of the same race.”
The bill creates a mechanism for the reporting of complaints and for data to be collected by the Legislature on the number of substantiated complaints each year.
During Friday’s debate, supporters emphasized that the bill applies to teachers’ conduct and not to curriculum, meaning teachers can still teach about historic events, such as slavery and the Civil Rights movement.
Some opponents feared the bill would turn away teachers in a state that already has a shortage of them or put teachers at risk for simply doing their jobs.

Similar legislation has advanced in other states and created controversy and confusion about whether teaching on such things as the lingering effect of slavery is acceptable in public school classrooms.
Democratic Del. Evan Hansen of Monongalia County said part of teaching history is teaching about how that history impacts communities today. He used the example of a neighborhood in his district, South Park, where Black families were once barred from living.
“You can’t tell me that the kid the children who inherited properties in South Park don’t have an advantage over the kids who inherited properties across the railroad tracks where their Black parents were forced to live,” he said.
He called supporters of the bill hypocrites.

“Calling this bill the ‘Anti-Racism Act’ is the height of hypocrisy,” he said.
Republican Del. Joe Ellington, chair of the House Education Committee, said it’s not fair for people today to be made to feel responsible for the events of the past — such as slavery.
“Those were things that happened at the time, nothing says we can’t teach those things,” he said. “But you shouldn’t be responsible for what happened then.”
The bill passed the House 75 to 24 with several changes by lawmakers, including that it apply only to K-12 schools and not to higher education public schools. The changes must now be approved by the Senate before the bill can be sent to the governor’s desk.

Jane Campion uses five letters to slam Sam Elliott following ‘Power of the Dog’ criticism – Fox News

Jane Campion had a few choice letters in response to Sam Elliott’s criticism of her film “The Power of the Dog” during the DGA Awards Saturday night.
The director, who was asked for her response about the actor’s shocking comments, refused to hold back.
“I’m sorry, he was being a little bit of a B-I-T-C-H,” the 67-year-old told Variety before the ceremony. “He’s not a cowboy; he’s an actor. The West is a mythic space and there’s a lot of room on the range. I think it’s a little bit sexist.”
Elliott, who has made his mark in Westerns, criticized Campion’s take on the genre during his recent appearance on Marc Maron’s “WTF” podcast. Campion noted that she viewed the 77-year-old’s crude criticism as a slight against her as a female filmmaker.

“When you think about the number of amazing Westerns made in Spain by (director) Sergio Leone,” she explained to the outlet. “I consider myself a creator. I think he thinks of me as a woman or something lesser first, and I don’t appreciate that.”
A spokesperson for Elliott didn’t immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.
When Elliott was asked if he had seen the film, the star replied, “You want to talk about that piece of s—?”
Elliott referenced a full-page ad in the Los Angeles Times that featured a review blurb that described the film as “an evisceration of the American myth.” The film is also nominated for 12 Academy Awards.

“I thought, what the f—?” Elliott said of the adaptation from the 1967 novel by Thomas Savage. “This is a guy who has done Westerns his entire life. ‘The evisceration of the American myth.’ It looked like — what are all those dancers, those guys in New York that wear bow ties and not much else? Remember them from back in the day?”
“Oh, the Chippendales?” Maron asked.
“That’s what all these f—ing cowboys in that movie looked like,” Elliott replied. “They’re all running around in chaps and no shirts. There’s all these allusions to homosexuality throughout the f—ing movie.”
Maron replied, “Yeah, I think that’s what the movie’s about,” speaking to the fact Benedict Cumberbatch’s character, Phil Burbank, is homosexual and has yet to come out of the closet.

It was then that Elliott fixed his crosshair on Campion, who is nominated for three Academy Awards this year.
“[Jane Campion’s] a brilliant director, by the way,” Elliott insisted. “I love her work, previous work. But what the f— does this woman from down there, New Zealand, know about the American West? And why in the f— does she shoot this movie in New Zealand and call it Montana and say, ‘This is the way it was?’ So that f—ing rubbed me the wrong way, pal.”
“I mean, Cumberbatch never got out of his f—ing chaps,” Elliot maintained of the film. “He had two pairs of chaps — a wooly pair and a leather pair. And every f—ing time he would walk in from somewhere … he never was on a horse, maybe once — he’d walk into the f—ing house, storm up the f—ing stairs, go lay in his bed in his chaps and play his banjo. It’s like, what the f—?”
Meanwhile, Netflix appeared to have heard Elliott’s remarks, and a day after the interview was sent into the ether, the streaming giant tweeted a scene that showed Kodi Smit-McPhee’s character telling his mother, who is played by Kirsten Dunst, “He’s just a man. Only another man.”

Elliot doubled down on his sentiment by the end of the back and forth, adding, “Where’s the Western in this Western?… I took it f—ing personal, pal.”

2021-22 Syracuse Basketball: A Season of Inches – Orange Fizz – Daily Syracuse Recruiting News & Team Coverage – Orange Fizz

Photo Courtesy of Bob Donnan/USA TODAY Sports
It is officially over. With Selection Sunday in the rearview mirror and Syracuse’s name not on the NCAA Tournament or NIT bracket, the 2021-22 season is done. It is probably for the best that it is over. The Orange finished the year 16-17 — the first losing season in the Jim Boeheim era and maybe the beginning of mediocrity in Central New York.
When you look at the final record on paper it looks horrible. Syracuse basketball is an esteemed program that expects to win. So anything less than an NCAA Tournament berth is disappointing. However, if you take a deeper dive, you can see that this past year was a season of inches. The hard pill to swallow is the inches were never on your side.
if(typeof __ez_fad_position != ‘undefined’){__ez_fad_position(‘div-gpt-ad-orangefizz_net-medrectangle-3-0’)};Let’s start with the elephant in the room — Colgate. A 15 point loss to the Raiders is unacceptable. If the Orange played them again 100 times, they would probably win all 100. A second half collapse did SU in, and from there it snowballed. Cuse took that bad mojo to the Bahamas where it lost to VCU, another team it should have no business losing to. Win against Colgate and you probably beat VCU. 18-15.
if(typeof __ez_fad_position != ‘undefined’){__ez_fad_position(‘div-gpt-ad-orangefizz_net-medrectangle-4-0’)};Then there is the Georgetown debacle. The Hoyas somehow came back from being down seven in the second half to win by four. The worst part about it — our best friends from DC won one more game after that game and then lost 21 straight. 21! Syracuse was far and away Georgetown’s best win. There is no reason why the Orange should have lost that game. 19-14.
ACC time. This is where the inches hurt the most. Starting with the game at Miami. The Orange were up 14 at half, but lost the game by one. A second half meltdown did SU in. Cuse should not have lost that game. 20-13.
The next game was another example of Syracuse not being able to handle the pressure. Against Wake Forest in Winston-Salem, the Orange lost in overtime because they couldn’t get the ball in at the end of regulation and turned it over. If they could execute down the stretch, that would have been another win. 21-12.
if(typeof __ez_fad_position != ‘undefined’){__ez_fad_position(‘div-gpt-ad-orangefizz_net-box-4-0’)};Skip to the end of the regular season with North Carolina and Miami on the docket. Both were losses, both should have been wins. Yet again, Syracuse was up late in the game against UNC, but couldn’t execute in the waning seconds and allowed overtime, which they just didn’t show up in. Against Miami, Cuse was up by 11 at half. What happened? You guessed it, another second half meltdown. Both of those games easily should have been wins. 23-10.

window.ezoSTPixelAdd(slotId, ‘adsensetype’, 2);

var lo = new MutationObserver(window.ezaslEvent);
lo.observe(document.getElementById(slotId + ‘-asloaded’), { attributes: true });
If those games of inches went Syracuse’s way, the Orange would have been looking at a 13-7 conference record and much better placement in the ACC Tournament. Cuse may have avoided the top of the bracket, which means they could have avoided Duke until the championship. So, toss on a couple more wins to the record. 24-10.
There you have it — 24-10. That is what you expect from Syracuse basketball. That is a definite NCAA Tournament team. That is a team that could make a run in March Madness.
Yes, this whole article is a lot of if’s, but they aren’t outlandish. All of those games Syracuse should have won. The Orange had self-inflicted wounds that inch by inch dug their own grave. This year’s team is not as bad as most think. It will go down as the worst in the illustrious career of Jim Boeheim, but in actuality, Syracuse just continually drew the short end of the stick.
