Update: USCIS has Completed Data Entry for FY 2016 H-1B Petitions

Update: USCIS has Completed Data Entry for FY 2016 H-1B Petitions

 

USCIS announced on May 4, 2015, that it had completed data entry of all fiscal year 2016 H-1B cap-subject petitions selected through its computer-generated random process. At this time, USCIS will now begin returning all unselected H-1B cap-subject petitions. 

Due to the high volume of filings, the time frame for returning these petitions remains uncertain. The agency has asked petitioners to not inquire about the status of submitted cap-subject petitions until they receive a receipt notice or an unselected petition is returned. USCIS will issue an announcement once all petitions have been returned.

How can I try to manage the impact of an interest rate hike?

With higher interest rates a distinct possibility in 2015, you may want to think about whether the bond portion of your portfolio is positioned appropriately given your time horizon and risk tolerance. One factor you might consider is which types of bonds may be most vulnerable to a rate hike.

Some investors forget that a bond's principal value may fluctuate with market conditions. When interest rates rise, longer-term bonds may feel a greater impact than those with shorter maturities. When interest rates are rising, bond buyers may be reluctant to tie up their money for longer periods if they anticipate higher yields in the future. The longer a bond's term, the greater the risk that its yield may eventually be superseded by that of newer bonds.

Third Police Officer Linked to a Molly's Pub Incident


BUFFALO, NY - There's new information linking a third police officer to problems at Molly's Pub last year. Since last May, two Buffalo police officers have been linked to an incident at Molly's Pub.

What happened?

The bar manager Jeffrey Basil pushed an Air National Guardsman down a flight of stairs. William Sager Jr. suffered a fractured skull and later died.

One of the officers present was Robert Eloff, who's been suspended from Buffalo Police. Eloff, is accused of violating the civil rights of one of Sager's friends after the incident, by allegedly handcuffing the friend, who was concerned about Sager.

The U.S. Government Has the Right to Search Your Electronic Devices at the Border

The U.S. Government Has the Right to Search Your Electronic Devices at the Border

 

Hundreds of thousands of travelers, citizens and foreign nationals alike cross the U.S. border every day. Many may be surprised to learn that border patrol agents do not need a warrant, any suspicion of wrongdoing or even consent to search a vehicle and all passenger belongings, including electronic devices. 

With the exception of foreign and domestic officials with diplomatic immunity, everyone who legally crosses a U.S. border undergoes a primary inspection. Most travelers are familiar with this process: A CBP officer checks your documents, glances between you and your passport and asks what your purpose is for entering the country. Following this exchange, a traveler may be asked to undergo a secondary inspection.
