Sequestration will end when Congress passes legislation that undoes the legal requirements in the BCA. How will sequestration affect CBP Field Operations? Under the automatic sequestration cuts, ...

He added, “because trade that is fair and free across ...

Throughout the telecast of last night’s GRAMMY’s show, viewers saw an exciting showcase of British music – the show included big British names performing and taking home top prizes, making the night a reminder of what makes British music GREAT. Music is GREAT Britain Beyond great music was a little taste of another one of my favourite topics to write about – fashion. Last week CBS sent out an email memo to talent regarding wardrobe restrictions.
