The Nobu group of luxury sushi restaurants and hotels took 14 loans from the U.S. small business relief program for as much as $28 million, according to government filings. The chain, founded by actor Robert De Niro, celebrity chef Nobuyuki “Nobu” Matsuhisa and film producer Meir Teper, got funding for properties scattered across the country, from California to Texas and New York, according to data released Monday.(Snip) The news that big, well-funded chains like Shake Shack and Ruth’s Hospitality Group had initially gotten loans set off a furor in April, prompting the administration to warn companies to make sure they qualified for the program.

The perennially losing NFL team that uses a slur as its nickname will have its merchandise scrubbed from Amazon’s website, the online shopping giant said Wednesday. Amazon joins other retailers including Walmart and Target that have moved to drop products bearing the Washington franchise’s mascot. The team said last week it would review its long-controversial moniker, an offensive term for Native Americans, after it came under fresh fire amid nationwide protests against racism. “With the announcement from the Washington team and the NFL, we are removing products with the team’s name and logo from our stores,” Amazon emailed sellers.

The counterfeit $20 bill that cost George Floyd his life is now part of the murder case against the ex-Minneapolis cops charged in his death, according to court records made public Wednesday. The lawyer for accused former cop Thomas Lane said the crumpled bills found between the seats of Floyd’s SUV put the officer on alert from the start after Floyd repeatedly reached down and ignored 10 requests to show his hand. “From the initial interaction with Floyd and his vehicle, Lane noticed the driver and passenger in the vehicle digging underneath the seat, as if reaching for something,” defense attorney Earl Gray

Players on the popular shoot-’em-up game “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” will no longer be able to celebrate with an “OK” gesture because of its use as a hate symbol, according to a report. US video game developer Infinity Ward quietly removed the gesture from the game amid concerns over its use by racist right-wing extremists, the Independent reported.(Snip) The OK symbol is described by the Anti-Defamation League as “a sincere expression of white supremacy,” but the organization notes that “care must be taken not to jump to conclusions about the intent behind someone who has used the gesture,”

Washington—Rep. Ilhan Omar has continued quietly funneling hundreds of thousands of dollars to her new husband’s consulting film, including a $189,000 windfall in March—just weeks after they announced they had tied the knot, campaign data shows. The payments between the Minneapolis Democratic congresswoman and Tim Mynett prompted at least one ethics complaint in 2019 after The Post first revealed allegations—made by Mynett’s then-wife in her divorce filing—that Omar was having an affair with the member of her political consulting team, who was at the time married to another woman.(Snip) Omar is by far the E Street Group’s biggest client,

The US drone strike that killed Qassem Soleimani, Iran’s top general, and nine other people was a violation of international law, according to the UN special rapporteur on extrajudicial killing. Washington failed to provide enough evidence of an ongoing or imminent attack against its interests to justify the strike on Soleimani’s convoy as it left Baghdad airport, Agnes Callamard said Monday. The strike violated the UN Charter, she wrote in a report that calls for accountability for targeted killings by armed drones and for greater regulation of the weapons.(Snip) But absent an actual imminent threat to life, the course of action taken

If Illinois Senator Tammy Duckworth eventually becomes Joe Biden’s vice presidential nominee, pundits and historians will look back to Independence Day weekend for the moment when her campaign jumped from insider gossip to mainstream appeal. Duckworth has long been considered an outside contender for the vice presidency. Her resumé is a Democratic dream: a combat veteran of the Iraq War, Duckworth sacrificed her legs in service to her country. After entering the House of Representatives in 2006 — flipping a Republican district long held by the abhorrent Henry Hyde, no less — Duckworth established herself as a progressive legislator and

Going for the wokester cred, Meghan Markle's husband, Prince Harry, would like you to apologize, or rather, 'reflect' on the colonial sins of his ancestors. Here's how bad it was: Prince Harry today faced criticism after he appeared to take a swipe at the British Empire by saying the history of the Commonwealth 'must be acknowledged', even if it's 'uncomfortable'. The Duke of Sussex, 35, made the comment as he joined wife Meghan Markle, 38, for a video call with young leaders from the Queen's Commonwealth Trust last week that was made public today. As part of the discussion on 'justice and equal rights', Harry said the Commonwealth needs to follow others
