While we had created an exciting Spring Superstars 2020 live performance for you featuring aspiring teen vocalists from The MusicianShip Washington Youth Choir backed by DC’s Earth, Wind & Fire Tribute Band, we are postponing performances/appearances until we can hold a to-be-scheduled Reception Bash in Washington. In the meantime, please take a few moments from your evening to check out our interviews of the teen performers (recorded in December 2019 and produced by Ian Zych, son of Tom Zych, Finance Officer), video supplied by The MusicianShip featuring several small group performances, and a video supplied by the band highlighting their December 6, 2019 performance at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts (where Section Chair Brian Henry instantly booked the band for Spring). All of these materials are available on the www.ourcuriousamalgam.com website.
Event Schedule Hall: Apr 23 Thu

Investigations have been launched into whether Big Tech firms are violating antitrust laws, and Congress has initiated a bipartisan investigation into competition in digital markets. The panel will examine the range of outcomes that could result from the Big Tech investigations, drawing comparisons to past investigations of companies that were thought to be Too Big to Break Up.
Discussion of more aggressive consummated merger enforcement is in the air. In this timely discussion paper, the Competition/Consumer Protection Policy and North America Comments Task Force highlights some of the policy issues enforcers confront in analyzing their approach to such enforcement.
Antitrust enforcers are facing calls for more active merger enforcement, particularly in the tech sector. Is more enforcement necessary? If so, are existing antitrust concepts and tools up to the task? For nascent acquisitions, how can competitive effects be assessed including impact on innovation or ability to disrupt, and what remedies should or could be considered for prior acquisitions?
