For example, while President Trump viewed the World Trade Organization with suspicion and derision, there are hopes that Mr Biden will focus instead on encouraging reform and modernisation of the organisation, which policies global trade. 3: A reset of the EU trade relationship The spat between US aircraft maker Boeing and European rival Airbus over claims of unfair state help preceded President Trump. But it was he who decided to levy tariffs on $7.5bn (£5,7bn) worth of European luxuries in response. Five questions for Joe Biden on the economy‘Let’s work together!’ World reacts to Biden winFive reasons Biden won the electionWhy Donald Trump lost Chinese handbags, French wine and Scottish cashmere: all have been weaponised by President Donald Trump, the self-proclaimed tariff man. 2: Same dream, different means Ultimately, while there is potential for a change in trade stance from a new president, his bulging domestic in-tray may distract him for some time. That is likely to mean offering an olive branch to the EU, with an offer to pour (lower tariff) oil on troubled waters. Here’s five things to be aware of: Mr Biden prefers the idea of strength in numbers – a multilateral approach – by getting traditional allies onside. With US unemployment having more than doubled during the course of the pandemic, promises to bolster livelihoods on home soil have a potent appeal. Related Topics Mr Biden’s pledges include penalising US firms that move jobs abroad. And like Mr Trump, he harbours concerns over China’s ambitions and way of doing business. There is more to trade than shipping containers lining ports. That was after the UK’s proposed Internal Market Bill risked the imposition of a physical customs border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

by James Jordan, Sumner Newscow â€” Bryce Day has comforted families who have lost a loved one for about four decades. He wants to make sure that continues after he is gone. He has what doctors say is terminal pancreas cancer, and last fall they told him he had six months to live. He hopes they are wrong, and is still fighting the illness as much as possible, and is remaining as positive as he can.He started the Bryce Day Memorial Foundation late last year, and just recently launched a website to help families in need when they have to bury a loved one. You can find more about the foundation here:Â http://www.brycedaymemorialfoundation.com/Day said he has been pleasantly surprised at the generosity of people. Already $16,000 has been donated to the cause. They are also giving aid already as well.Bryce DayHe wanted to make it simple, so people who have to pay for a funeral can apply for aid by just filling out a short form on the website, or by calling the foundation.Day started the Day Funeral Home in 1998, and sold it to Tytus Cornejo a couple of years ago. Day started working at a funeral home while still in high school at age 14 in Wellington.In those years he has seen people have a loved one die unexpectedly and have to make arrangements quickly, which is hard if you don’t have any insurance or don’t have the money. He has seen others who lost a loved one when it was perhaps more expected, and they too had a need.“It is something Wellington has needed for some time,â€ Day said. â€œI have been in this profession forever it seems. The funeral homes in Wellington are all on board with it, and it is exciting to me.â€He also wants to keep it simple. People call and they get help, and he wants to to remain that way.All of the money received goes directly to the foundation and it will all be used to help people who have a need, he explained.Getting the foundation going has helped Day also with his own condition as he battles cancer. He will turn 62 in March, and he is determined to get that far. He continues the battle as well. He said he is going to Austin, Texas this week to visit a cancer clinic where some new things are being tried.Day grew up in Wellington, but currently lives with his niece in Wichita to be close to medical facilities there.“It has been an exciting time to be able to do something for my hometown,â€ Day said. â€œCancer is hard to beat, but I am fighting. When I first heard I had it, I was devastated. But as time goes on, my faith is in the Lord. I just keep fighting.”He wants to live, and there are still things he would like to do. He is facing the reality, and just knowing his foundation is up and running is a blessing.Day does have a different perspective on the possibility of dying soon. He has seen friends lose loved ones, and been there for them and comforted them as he could.â€This really brings it all home,â€ he said. â€œI am doing ok, but it gets trying at times. I just have faith and hope for the best.”Last Saturday there was a small party where he is staying, and friends he had not seen in 30 years showed up.“That really renewed by spirit,â€ he said. â€œIt makes me fight that much harder. You do get worn out at times, but that was great,” he said of the event last weekend.Day said he wanted to express his appreciation to the people of Wellington for embracing him for all the years he lived and worked there.“I just hope people will endorse the foundation,” he said.Tytus Conejo is a consultant to the foundation. He has worked with Day for about 10 years, and bought the funeral home a couple of years ago. He said seeing Day get this foundation going, and seeing his attitude through his battle with cancer, has been an inspiration.The foundation will give people in need up to $750 to go towards a funeral.People may also designate the foundation as a memorial gift at someone’s funeral. If a family qualifies, they will make up the difference between what is given and $750. A family must have less than $3,000 in their bank account to qualify.Follow us on Twitter.
