May's Bid to Break Brexit Impasse Stalls as Labour Disappointed

May's Bid to Break Brexit Impasse Stalls as Labour DisappointedPrime Minister Theresa May’s attempt to break the deadlock over Brexit stalled after the opposition Labour Party said she hasn’t offered “real change” to her policy. The stalemate will make it harder for May to argue at a summit next week that she needs only a short extension to Britain’s EU membership to get a Brexit deal approved at home. May has failed to get the accord she negotiated with EU leaders ratified by a divided Parliament and so has turned to Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn for help.

Pound Slides as Parliament Fails to End Brexit Impasse Once More

Pound Slides as Parliament Fails to End Brexit Impasse Once MoreThe failure of May’s last-ditch effort to get her deal through Parliament leaves the U.K. with the choice between crashing out of the European Union without a deal in two weeks and seeking a long extension of its departure date. The British parliament will vote Monday on various alternatives to May’s agreement.

Illinois budget impasse increasingly hurts universities: Moody's

Illinois budget impasse increasingly hurts universities: Moody'sIllinois’ record-breaking budget impasse, which has led to sporadic funding for higher education, is increasingly pressuring the finances and competitiveness of state universities, Moody’s Investors Service said on Thursday. The credit rating agency said the lack of complete state funding has forced schools to take “considerable steps,” including cutting academic programs and raising tuition, in order to keep operating and preserve financial liquidity. “Material programing reductions and staffing cuts, while necessary to keep the state’s public universities operational in the short-term, will further impair the universities’ abilities to sustain their strategic competitiveness and attract students for the upcoming fall 2017 class,” Moody’s said in a report.
