What has Biden achieved in his first 100 days?




In Biden’s initial acts as the 46th US president, he signed 15 executive orders. These included a package to boost the federal response to the coronavirus crisis and orders reversing the Trump administration’s stance on climate change and immigration.

Covid relief package and vaccine rollout

Biden passed a $1.9 trillion COVID relief bill into law within two months of his appointment.

The emergency relief package funds vaccinations and support struggling families and communities.

The twofold plan focuses on overcoming the Covid health crisis and then investing in American jobs to promote economic recovery.

It includes funding to provide direct economic relief, safely reopen schools and mount a national vaccination program.

More than half of adults in the United States have received at least one Covid-19 vaccine dose and the country has surpassed 200 million administered doses.

The US also rejoined the World Health Organisation, with Dr. Anthony Fauci as the head of delegation.

Dr. Fauci is the top infectious disease expert in the US.

Racial Justice

Biden signed four executive actions to advance racial equity.

He directed the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to redress discriminatory federal housing policies.

He also signed an Executive Order to end the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) use of private prisons.

This comes after former police officer Derek Chauvin was convicted for the murder of Georgia Floyd.

President Biden said the verdict was a ‘giant step towards justice in America’, but added there is still work to be done to dismantle systemic racism in the country.

‘It was a murder in the full light of day and it ripped the blinders off the whole world to see,’ he said, before declaring that systemic racism is ‘a stain on our nation’s soul’.

Climate Crisis

The president also signed executive orders to rejoin the Paris climate agreement, pledging to bring down the rate of global heating to 1.5C by 2030.

Biden also reviewed a number of Trump-era rollbacks, including revoking the pipeline for TC Energy Corp.’s controversial Keystone XL oil pipeline.

A recent global summit hosted by the US opened with the president’s climate pledge.

The US pledged to cut in half the amount of climate-wrecking coal and petroleum fumes it is pumping out.

Why Australia is becoming the new home of the Hollywood blockbuster



Australia’s multimillion-dollar campaign to attract Hollywood productions to its shores appears to be paying off.

The allure of Australia lies not only in its picturesque locations but also in its competitive financial incentives.

The government offers generous rebates and tax breaks to international productions, making it an attractive proposition for filmmakers looking to maximise their budgets.

Despite the recent intake of Hollywood productions down under such as ‘The Fall Guy’ and ‘Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga’, Aussie independents are still finding the space to carve their own creative path.

U.S. home prices surge 47%



American home prices are rising at faster pace now than in the last 20-years.

A recent analysis reveals a jaw dropping surge in the cost of American homes.

Since the start of 2020, U.S. home prices have surged 47% easily outstripping the gains seen in recent decades.

On top of that, home price growth so far this decade is on the verge of surpassing all the growth seen in the 2000s.

Many experts believe this decade’s housing market frenzy was ignited by a perfect storm — the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic triggering an unprecedented rush among buyers.
