TODAY'S TOP STORIES

Biden kicks off his ‘Help is Here’ tour, women rule at the Grammys, and an intriguing new title for Elon Musk

President Joe Biden and his allies are hitting the road this week to promote the $1.9 trillion pandemic relief bill as the right prescription for a country humbled by the pandemic.

Microsoft stands to receive nearly a quarter of COVID relief funds destined for U.S. cybersecurity defenders, sources have told Reuters, angering some lawmakers who don't want to increase funding for a company whose software was recently at the heart of two big hacks.

Taylor Swift and Billie Eilish took the top prizes at the Grammy Awards but Beyonce was the big winner on a history-making night marked by multiple wins for women. Here's a list of the key winners of the highest honors in the music industry.

 People transport a person who was shot during a security force crackdown on anti-coup protesters in Thingangyun, Yangon, Myanmar, March 14, 2021

Myanmar security forces fired on pro-democracy demonstrators killing six people, a day after dozens of protesters were shot dead and attackers torched several Chinese-financed factories in the city of Yangon. Many people in Myanmar see China as supportive of the coup.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson says he is deeply concerned at footage of police dragging women away from a vigil for a murdered woman. London police face an official inquiry into their actions after they intervened in the vigil for Sarah Everard. A policeman has been charged with her murder.

Publicly, the European Union has dismissed Russia’s global coronavirus vaccine supply campaign as a propaganda stunt by an undesirable regime. Behind the scenes, the bloc is turning to Moscow’s Sputnik V shot as it tries to get its stuttering efforts to vaccinate its 450 million people back on track.

The Vatican says that priests and other Catholic Church ministers cannot bless same-sex unions, in a ruling in response to moves in some parishes to impart blessings as a sign of welcome to gay Catholics.

BUSINESS

India will propose a law banning cryptocurrencies, fining anyone trading in the country or even holding such digital assets, a senior government official has told Reuters in a potential blow to millions of investors piling into the red-hot asset class.

Federal Reserve policymakers are expected this week to forecast that the U.S. economy will grow in 2021 at the fastest rate in decades, with unemployment falling and inflation rising.

China’s factory and retail sector activity surged in the first two months of the year, beating expectations, as the economy consolidated its brisk recovery from the paralysis of early 2020.

Hand gel, loungewear and dumbbells: changes to the UK’s inflation basket show some of the adjustments to everyday life in the year since the start of the pandemic.
