Every 2021 Honda Accord has a trunk that measures 16.7 cubic-feet in volume, including the Accord Hybrid whose past versions had severely reduced cargo capacity. Having done a similar cargo capacity test during our midsize family sedan comparison test, this was really a foregone conclusion.
Nokia sees pick up in margins as turnaround takes shape
Nokia, which announced thousands of job cuts this week, is forecasting a pick up in profit margins to 10%-13% in 2023 as new Chief Executive Pekka Lundmark charts a course to catch up with rivals in the race to deliver 5G networks. Nokia, which has lost out to Sweden’s Ericsson and China’s Huawei in the battle for work on next generation 5G networks, had last year cut its 2020 operating margin guidance to 9% from 9.5% and forecast 7%-10% for 2021. Lundmark, who took the helm in August, has introduced a new operating model with four business groups and plans to cut the workforce by 10,000 jobs in the next two years from about 90,000 employees now.
Blinken says U.S. weighs pressure, diplomacy on North Korea over denuclearisation and rights abuses
Both pressure and diplomatic options are on the table for dealing with North Korea, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on Thursday, hours after a senior North Korean diplomat rejected any talks until Washington changed its policies. Blinken told a joint briefing with South Korean officials in Seoul that the administration of President Joe Biden would complete its review of North Korea policy in the next few weeks in close consultation with its allies. “President Biden plans to complete a North Korea policy review in the weeks ahead in close cooperation and consultation with the Republic of Korea, with Japan and with other key partners, including resuming pressure options and the potential for future diplomacy,” Blinken said.
‘Autocratic. Anti-Democratic. Anti-American’: Schumer launches blistering attack on GOP bills targeting voting rights
Senate Democrats will introduce their version of the For The People Act, a sweeping voting rights proposal and single-largest election legislation since the passage of the landmark Voting Rights Act. Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said lawmakers will revive the bill from Mitch McConnell’s “legislative graveyard” after the Republican Senator sidelined the bill along with other Democratic-backed measures. The bill is an antidote to “despicable” acts of voter suppression across the US, Mr Schumer said, pointing to the more than 250 GOP-sponsored bills aimed at restricting ballot access in at least 43 state legislatures in the wake of the 2020 election, compelled by Donald Trump’s persistent lie that the election was tainted by “irregularities” and “stolen” from his supporters.
Mitch McConnell says Asian Americans “should not have to experience discrimination”
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell — whose wife is of Asian heritage — addressed this week’s mass shooting in Georgia by saying Thursday that “Asian Americans should not have to experience discrimination anywhere.”What he’s saying: “Committing a crime against anyone because of his or her national origin or race is deeply wrong and antithetical to our founding principles,” McConnell (R-Ky.) said in a statement to Axios.Stay on top of the latest market trends and economic insights with Axios Markets.

She emigrated to the United States when she was eight years old.Critics blamed Trump’s rhetoric against China following the outbreak of the coronavirus for fueling an uptick in anti-Asian violence across the U.S.The former president labeled COVID-19 the “Chinese virus,” “Wuhan virus” and “kung flu.”Go deeper: The Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University found that anti-Asian hate crimes reported to police in America’s largest cities jumped nearly 150% in 2020.Like this article?

Child killed in Peloton treadmill accident as CEO issues warning to parents
A child has died in an accident involving a Peloton treadmill, leading the company’s chief to warn parents to keep infants away from the equipment. Peloton has grown in popularity in the last year with more people turning to its at-home workout products as they ditch their gym memberships amidst the pandemic. John Foley, Peloton’s co-founder and chief executive, emailed owners of the Tread+ on March 18 to inform them of the incident. “I’m reaching out to you today because I recently learned about a tragic accident involving a child and the Tread+, resulting in, unthinkably, a death,” he wrote. “While we are aware of only a small handful of incidents involving the Tread+ where children have been hurt, each one is devastating to all of us at Peloton, and our hearts go out to the families involved.” Mr Foley advised users to keep pets and children away from Peloton equipment, and store it safely when not in use. The company said it would not be releasing any further details, including the age of the child and location. The Tread+, which retails at around $4,256 (£3,000), is currently not on sale in the UK, however, a lighter, less expensive model is available for purchase. Peloton, whose stationary exercise bike has gained a cult following over the past years, launched the Peloton Tread in 2018, and then introduced the updated model Tread+ last fall. The Tread+ features a slat belt that helps lessen the impact on the body, while The Tread has a more classic, continuous running belt. Tread+ is one of a range of Peloton’s treadmills and bikes, which features a screen allowing users to follow training videos and virtual workouts. Peloton shares fell more than 3 per cent in New York trading on Thursday. Around 25,000 children each year in the US are hurt on exercise equipment, of which 2,600 kids on average end up in the emergency room from treadmill accidents.
Fauci shows exasperation with Rand Paul in COVID-19 hearing: ‘Here we go again…’
Dr. Anthony Fauci and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) just once again clashed during a COVID-19 hearing. This time, as Fauci testified before lawmakers on Thursday, Paul claimed it’s “just theater” for those who have had COVID-19 or received their vaccine to still wear a mask, an assertion that drew pushback from the nation’s top infectious disease expert. “Here we go again with the theater,” Fauci said. “Let’s get down to the facts.” Fauci pointed to the spread of COVID-19 variants, which he called a “good reason for a mask,” and he told Paul that he’s “not hearing what I’m saying about variants” as the senator continued to argue there’s no evidence people should need to wear masks after recovering from COVID-19 or getting a vaccine. CDC guidance states that those who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 should still wear a mask in public. “You’ve been vaccinated and you parade around in two masks for show,” Paul told Fauci. An exasperated Fauci rejected that claim, telling Paul, “Let me just state for the record masks are not theater” and adding that “I totally disagree” with what he said. This was the latest clash between the two during a congressional hearing. In September, Fauci blasted Paul for “not listening” to what health officials had been saying, adding that the senator “misconstrued” what he had said and has “done that repetitively in the past.” Sen. @RandPaul: “If we’re not spreading the infection, isn’t it just theater? You have the vaccine and you’re wearing two masks, isn’t that theater? Dr. Anthony Fauci: “Here we go again with the theater. Let’s get down to the facts.” Full video here: https://t.co/61RnSUvayG pic.twitter.com/xDWnCuFjjO — CSPAN (@cspan) March 18, 2021 More stories from theweek.comMichael Cohen says Trump is in for a ‘proctological exam of the highest order’ by New York prosecutorsWoman alleges Armie Hammer ‘violently raped’ her in 2017Let informed people be jurors
