Obama to preside assembly concerning immigration change

In pursuance of demonstrating encouragement for the development of the country’s immigration regulations, President Barack Obama has assembled leaders aligned with former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, as well as Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey, who also served as Washington, D.C. police chief.

The bipartisan party members were those invited to the said assembly at the White House. They anticipated to convene with the U.S. leader this Tuesday afternoon to talk about the reform needed to improve the immigration scheme.

Industry along with religious heads, even present and past public senior officers coming from various political sectors were to be called to attend the assembly, according to an unnamed White House executive.

According to the White House last Monday, U.S. President Barack Obama has been set to preside the assembly in order to explain profoundly the significance of overhauling the country’s “broken immigration system”. This must be done so that the government will be able to conform to the nation’s 21st century economic as well as public security requirements.

President Obama was already criticized by Latino and immigration protesters for being unsuccessful in giving priority to the immigration concerns during his first term in office. Although the president was constantly getting a reminder about his obligation to resolve immigration issues, the deportation of 393,000 immigrants – a first in U.S. history – in the previous year triggered the Spanish-language media and Hispanic communities to criticize the ability of the president to resolve the worsening situation in immigration.

Due to occurrence of these issues, Illinois democratic representative Luis Gutierrez quoted the people of Chicago of his doubt to support Obama for the 2012 presidential elections if the president failed to come up with immigration developments. To recall, it was Gutierrez who convinced Hispanic voters to support Obama during the 2008 presidential campaign.

It was reported in the previous week that 22 Senate Democrats submitted a request to President Obama to procrastinate deportations of juvenile undocumented immigrants who entered the nation with the guidance of their parents.

Shares of RIM dips as PlayBook gets only moderate reviews

Last Thursday, RIM or Research in Motion suffered a setback in trading as it only managed to obtain initial reviews with moderate as the top for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet.

The lackluster reviews for the tablet were due to its incomplete look in the eyes of the critics. As a whole, they showed approval on the user interface of this PlayBook with screen display of 7 inches.

As a result, the shares of RIM dropped greater than 3% during the majority of the exchange last Thursday. The firm observed minimal stock recovery with a conclusion of 1.7% lesser at a value of $53.92. With a cost beginning at a value of $499, the 16GB PlayBook is set to be launched on April 19, 2011, Tuesday.

The firm began discussing about the PlayBook as early as November 2010 for the purpose of gaining attraction and interest from the public. Stockholders are optimistic that this tablet could strengthen the firm’s hold on the company industry even as iPads begin getting into it.

Nevertheless, the critics’ evaluations show that this widely anticipated device would become the Ishtar of RIM. Some of the reviews include no 3G with no tethering, insufficient application, incomplete software and corporate look.

Walt Mossberg mentioned in the Wall Street Journal that the user interface of PlayBook can be considered as “good-looking and fast.” On the other hand, Mossberg criticized the device’s “strange system” which needs to be connected to a BlacBerry with the use of an application named BlackBerry Bridge. With that, PlayBook will gain 3G service.

Another critic named David Pogue, wrote in New York Times that PlayBook has insufficient internal applications such as e-mail, address book, calendar and BlackBerry Messenger. Furthermore, it has to be tied up with a BlackBerry to make use of these apps. According to RIM, the internal applications are set to arrive by summer time.

From Engadget, Tim Stevens said that RIM has been cramming at present to complete its software. In addition to that, he stated that PlayBook is an amazing gadget that is still needed to be furnished.

Cameron, Tyler Winklevoss versus Facebook continues in Court of Appeals

Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss decided to plea for justice at the United States 9th Circuit Court of Appeals last Monday in order to reverse a court verdict in the previous week which stated that there will be no escape for the twin brothers regarding their estimated $65 million payment to Facebook three years ago. The said amount includes money along with shares.

The twins have already resolved a case versus Facebook wherein they asserted that Mark Zuckerberg, their fellow owner, embezzled the concept for Facebook during the time when the website ConnectU was being created by them. The Winklevoss brothers and Zuckerberg were Harvard classmates at that point.

At present, the amount to be paid soared to beyond $160 million since Facebook, a social media platform, has gained more fame as well as worth.

T. Rowe Price, a stockholding company, lately purchased stocks in Facebook with an amount of $190.5 million. According to the statistics, Facebook ranks first in number of online visitors. Thus, its worth skyrocketed to around $ 50 billion.

In the previous week, the Court of Appeals with a jury composed of three judges made a verdict in opposition to the brothers. At this moment, they are hoping to attain a reversal of decision from the jury of 11 judges. The twins made a dispute in the court papers wherein following the agreement was sealed, they discovered that the amount of their shares was lower as compared to what was stated in the court three years ago.

The lawyers of the twins from Howard Rice, a legal company, submitted their plea at the Court of Appeals. According to one of their lawyers, Jerome B. Falk Jr., the plea is for giving resolution about the payment agreement in 2008 if it was lawful or not.

Falk further mentioned that the basis for agreements must be dealt sincerely. The previous court’s verdict really favored Facebook since there was a strong assertion that the social networking site attained this payment agreement through deceitful act. The twin’s plea requests only the whole 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to hear their side again.
