Happening in the World: Australia has ended the “Golden Visa,” a program that allowed permanent stay to wealthy investors who invested more than $3 million into the country’s economy. The government raised concerns over investors using the program for corrupt purposes. They will instead offer more skilled-worker visas to migrants, an effort that they project will boost Australia’s economy. (BBC)

Happening in the US: Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has dropped out of the 2024 presidential election and endorsed Donald Trump. This comes after unfavorable results in the Iowa’s caucus. The departure leaves candidate Nikki Haley in a battle against Donald Trump, though according to a survey, most DeSantis supporters are prepared to back Trump. The upcoming primaries in New Hampshire and South Carolina—Haley’s home state—may negatively affect Haley’s campaign against Trump. (Reuters)

Happening in NYC: The MTA is piloting the usage of subway barriers at the 191st Street Station. The barriers are meant to be a low-cost effort to prevent passenger injuries as they transport on platforms in the station. The move is part of a larger project still in its experimental phase, according to the MTA chair. The West 8th Street and Clark Street stations are next to be included in the pilot process.
