China criticizes US moves on intellectual property, telecoms

Jan 18, 2018

BEIJING — China on Thursday criticized recent moves by the U.S. targeting the sale of fake goods and Chinese telecoms equipment, saying Washington lacked "objectivity" in its approach to Chinese businesses. Commerce Ministry spokesman Gao Feng told reporters the U.S. Trade Representative lacked direct conclusive evidence and supporting data in listing three Chinese online commerce platforms and six physical bazaars within China as "notorious markets" engaging in commercial-scale copyright piracy and trademark counterfeiting. "We have to question the objectivity and credibility of the relevant U.S. department in issuing its report," Gao told reporters at a news conference. "The Chinese government...

Priest tends to miners, sex workers deep in Peru's Amazon

Jan 18, 2018

BOCA COLORADO, Peru — Below an umbrella of trees deep in the Peruvian Amazon, drunken miners carry on their shoulders the casket of a man whose search for gold ended with a bullet in his stomach. "In my heart there is no peace," the Rev. Pedro Zabala sings as the coffin is lowered into the dirt in a cemetery where the graves of about 50 other illegal miners are marked with plain black crosses. The 70-year-old Spanish priest tends to some of the rainforest's most hapless souls. Men from poor villages who search mercury-laced rivers for a pebble of gold....

France's PSA Group to offer 40 electric vehicles by 2025

Jan 18, 2018

DETROIT — The CEO of France-based automaker PSA Group says it will offer 40 electric models across its lineup by 2025, and it plans to sell vehicles in the U.S. within 10 years.

It will use its experience to learn the market and return to U.S. sales. Such an approach "will minimize the risk of not understanding what the U.S. consumer is expecting from us," he said. Tavares wouldn't...

Lawmakers ask if states or feds should alert about missiles

Jan 18, 2018

HONOLULU — Nearly 40 terrifying minutes passed between the time Hawaii officials fired off a bogus alert about an incoming missile over the weekend and the moment the notice was canceled. The state was slow to contain the situation, waiting 23 minutes to call officials with the Federal Emergency Management Agency to get unnecessary approval to send a retraction. That call lasted for about one minute, a state emergency official said Wednesday, but residents and visitors still didn't receive the corrected alert until about 14 minutes later. The confusion — and panic — have raised questions about whether any state...

Apple banks on tax break to build 2nd campus, hire 20,000

Jan 18, 2018

SAN FRANCISCO — Apple is planning to build a new corporate campus and hire 20,000 U.S. workers in an expansion driven in part by a tax cut that will enable the iPhone maker to bring an estimated $245 billion back to its home country. The pledge announced Wednesday comes less than a month after Congress approved a sweeping overhaul of the U.S. tax code championed by President Donald Trump that will increase corporate profits. Besides dramatically lowering the standard corporate tax rate, the reforms offer a one-time break on cash held overseas. Apple plans to take advantage of that provision...
