   Members of the United Kingdom's House of Parliament rejected an agreement negotiated by Prime Minister Theresa May for leaving the European Union for a third time on Friday by a vote of 344 to 286. That means the U.K has missed an EU deadline to delay its exit to May 22 and leave with a deal.
    The BBC reported May now has until April 12 to seek a longer extension to the negotiation process to avoid having her country leave the E.U. without an agreement.
    “We will have to agree an alternative way forward,” said May after the vote. “On Monday, this House will continue the process to see if there is a stable majority for a particular alternative version of our future relationship with the EU.”
    The BBC reported that the Labor Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said, “There has to be an alternative found. And if the prime minister can't accept that then she must go, not at an indeterminate date in the future but now. So that we can decide the future of this country through a general election.”

At the midpoint of 2019, many experts expect the economy’s momentum to slow due to the potential for trade tensions to accelerate, global economies to deteriorate or climate-related risks to materialize.

Iron ore shipments from U.S. Great Lakes ports totaled 6 million tons in May, up 2% year-over-year, according to the Lake Carriers’ Association.
